Zeroth



Players: 5-6
Pace: Flexible, so be commited long term.
Writing Level: Casual+
Sheet Deadline: September 8th

Centuries upon Centuries ago the Eltarians were in a brutal struggle against the collective strengths of their enemies, the only thing between them and universal darkness being that of a inherent extradimensional source of energy that would become known as the Morphing Grid.

To keep the forces of darkness from getting their hands on this power source they locked it away and the universe was preserved, if at the price of sacrificing the Eltarians themselves. The key to unlocking the grid, crystalline objects known as energems, would find themselves blasted into deep space. Various alien hordes would search for them with hopes it could empower them as the most powerful beings in the universe for time eternal. Fate has robbed them of that, though it is in the 21st Century on the Planet Earth where they will finally get their chance and nearly succeed.

It would be on Earth that the energems would be unearthed and awakened by several new hosts whomst hold the willpower and goodness to protect them and the grid from the threats that salivate for their power. These would-be heroes would come to be known as the first Power Rangers this reality had seen since the fall of Eltar. Their bravery would push back horde after horde until a devastating event would see themselves meet a terrible fate. However, from some interdimensional accident, one of the rangers who survived the event has tampered with the grid and tricked fate. Finding themselves in the beginning they know what it is soon to come. As they await the energems to be harnessed by their friends in this particular timeline they look to the sky for the aliens that will soon come.

Can the rangers survive what is to come this time?

Premise of the RP


Welcome to a reimagining of the Power Rangers setting, and I say setting very loosely here since as us who grew up with this franchise very clearly know any lore and continuity is held together with duct tape.

As a RP you will be playing one of the original rangers which outside of Red, Blue, and Yellow are not locked in. So if you want to have a green ranger instead of a pink ranger, that’s fine as well. More of a fan of purple? Go for it. The entire focus will be on the relations that will form between our group of characters in their early-to-mid-twenties. One lucky player will also have ties to the mysterious Gold Ranger given they are their sibling from the dark timeline’s future where all of the rangers effectively got killed. Most of that stuff is just story flavoring though, so don’t get too caught up with that. As for the setting more specifically, it will be an alternate Earth in what I’ll say is the 2040s or 2050s. Technology will be advancing along with some robotics and technological wizardry.

It’s a Power Rangers RP so at the core I won’t be taking it absolutely too seriously, though we do have a veneer of taking ourselves more seriously than say... Ninja Steel. So keep that in mind.

Power Rangers. In their twenties. Alternate Earth. Go ham. We will introduce the concept of Zords in the second or third arc. The first arc will largely be about the energems being unearthed and binding themselves to the hosts as guardians of the grid. Our first transformations and fights will be here. The second arc will be fights with typical slice-of-life affair in the middle for taste. There is some modicum of planning but I am also playing a lot by ear so if you have suggestions or questions I’ll hear you out. Unsure where your character fits in? My character will be a pilot for an archaeology team before the yellow energem binds to them as an example.

And that's the basics.
Ranger Conceptualization


Characters will not be “teenagers with attitude”, so it's perfectly fine to be a little confused here. I'll explain.

My character, the yellow ranger, is a pilot commissioned by an archaeological expedition originating in Angel Grove, CA – which, of course, will be our central location. Unlike some depictions of Angel Grove it will be in Northern California as opposed to Southern for flavor.

All characters would be employed in Angel Grove or residents of Angel Grove. This may make the organization of the team lead-up take some time, but I want to be as organic and inviting as possible plot-wise. At least one other character will be involved in the archaeological dig that my character is flying back to Angel Grove from. They could be site security or an archaeologist. Use your imagination! Some kind of physicist would be useful for technobabble about the “science” behind the morphing grid. If you are concerned your character has to be part of the digsite, don’t worry about that. Make the character you want to make. If they are an adrenaline junkie in Angel Grove that’s fine, I’ll make the energem come to you. I’m an experienced enough GM where I can adjust and adapt. Just remember. Yellow is mine.

Additionally, as I mentioned before, at least one player is related to the Gold Ranger from the other timeline, who at this point would be a teenager. If we get a good core of around five (plus me!) people going, I’m completely cool with letting someone play the Gold Ranger as well.

While I’m not really caught up with the Power Rangers shows, I did start reading the comics Boom Studios is putting out. As such I would be interested in participating in this. As for colour I’m torn between white, purple, and orange. I’m open to the votes of others on what colour I should be.

@metanoia @Akayaofthemoon With no competing sheets in the span of nearly a week I can safely say you guys can consider Levi and Jordan canonized. Transfer them over.

@TGM
Sorry about the delay on the character sheet. I ended going with red as my colour, instead of the other three I mentioned.



EDIT: Switched image upload site.

Additionally Alex has PM'd me a few days ago about interest to do the Gold Ranger, so I'm working with them to fit that role.

@Martian @Taka I'll have a decision on red by the end of the night (EST). Should I like both sheets sufficiently, I may find a way to accept you both. Of course, a color change would be needed at that point but one step at a time. Thanks for being patient.

With no other contestants for Pink by the deadline, @Eggs gets the prize and should transfer Briggs over to the characters tab.
