Welcome to the future, the year 2500, on planet Earth. Mars has been terraformed and some people do live there, but we've successfully saved Earth from becoming uninhabitable, and most of the human population still lives here. Then there are those that live on space stations bound for distant planets, but more on all this later...
Our story takes place on planet Earth of "Universe 0". Before we continue, it is important to note that our universe exists outside the realm of "Grand Zeno, The Omni King's" control. In fact, it can be assumed that Grand Zeno has so much control over the universes in the Dragon Ball cannon, because he likely created them (or was at least around before their creation). It is even possible that Zeno himself was originally from "Universe 0". This is a possibility we can explore in the future.
All characters in the beginning of this RP will be human. In fact, while intelligent life has been spotted on other far away planets, there has never been an alien on Planet Earth (at least not to our knowledge). And Earth's closest space station to reaching one of those distant planets is still not due to land for another 400 years.
For now, we return our attention to more micro-scale issues, like the "World Martial Arts Tournament". The tournament is held every five years, and we will start out tale at the 50th edition of this great competition. Thus, this is a two hundred and fifty year old martial arts tradition. The tournament was started after medical science became so advanced that nearly all near death injuries (including loss of limbs) could easily be healed. Since then, warriors from around the world have been competing and giving it their all to be crowned as the world's strongest fighter.
So, after creating your human character (who should obviously be a fighter), you will then begin to advance your way through the tournament. Then we will jump right into it. Your first post will be a summary of you arriving at the tournament grounds. I will wait for two people to start us off. The first person will introduce their character. The second person's character will meet the first person's character. What kind of relationship you two choose to build is entirely up to you (i.e. whether they already know each other, whether they like each other, whether they dislike each other).
After our first two contestants are introduced, I will move the story forward. For those interested in joining this RP, if you aren't one of the first two people to post in the IC section, don't worry. Your characters will be able to join the action soon after.
Now before you make your character, let's go ahead and take a look at how battles will be decided. There will be two "game stats" in this RP: Health and Power Level. These two stats are linked, because your Max Health and Power Level will always be equal to each other. Of course when you take damage, your health will decrease, and when you use a special technique, your Power Level will temporarily increase. For now, I won't dive further into this. You will learn more about this as you participate in the RP.
Okay! Now please turn to the "Characters" tab to see character guidelines!
