Like many other Power Rangers fans I was shocked to hear the news about the passing of Jason David Frank. I was kind of surprised there aren’t more PR themed roleplays or interest checks already on here. I’ve tried a few PR games in the past and usually the Mighty Morphin era was always what I drew from. I think I’ve finally got an idea for a more original type of team. If this takes off there’s limited space unless somebody wants to stop by once in a while for out of costume shenanigans or play some of the villains. As a lifelong PR fan I’d love to get something like this going for a longer period of time. So before I get emotional again thinking about the guy in real life, let’s do something different with the character of Tommy Oliver….



The year was 2030. Over three decades had passed since the Power Rangers had to protect the city of Angel Grove. Most of them had moved on with their lives. Tommy Oliver had earned a doctorate in paleontology, and in 2004 had a hand in the creation of the Dino Thunder Power Rangers in Reefside, California. He tried getting married, but always let the life of being a Ranger interfere. He moved back to Angel Grove years ago, and bought the land where Zordon’s old command chamber used to be located. He still had technology and artifacts from his time as different Rangers over the years, and it was kept in an underground bunker beneath his home. Dr. Oliver had got another teaching job as a science teacher, this time at Angel Grove High. To his surprise, Billy Cranston had also recently moved back to the area and was also teaching at the school.

Everything seemed to be going well, until it wasn’t. Someone or something had broken into the bunker of Tommy Oliver and swiped many of the items being stored there. Within weeks, it was clear that some alien or madman had started creating monsters. Oliver and Cranston used the remaining tech and their connection to the Morphin Grid to create another team of Power Rangers to protect Angel Grove and the rest of the world. Within weeks a portion of the city was decimated, but then the Dragon Force Rangers hit the scene.

The two elder Rangers were both pushing sixty and too old to do any fighting themselves so they did the best they could with what they had. The Dragon Morphers were somewhat mystical and technological in nature and sought out the students who would wield them. They would become the Red Dragon Ranger, the White Dragon Ranger, the Green Dragon Ranger, and the Black Dragon Ranger. Using designs from the Red Dragon Thunderzord as well as tech from the Dragonzord of the Green Ranger, four serpentine Dragonzords were built each with a secondary humanoid fighting mode.

Who were the enemies causing chaos and creating hybrid monstrosities? An older Scorpina as well as the now adult King Sprocket of the Machine Empire, in possession of the staff of Rita Repulsa and the stolen tech of Tommy Oliver!




So… who’s still with me? I’m kinda surprised a similar gimmick like this hasn’t been tried yet, and I’m still not entirely sure what the powers will be for each of the different Dragon Rangers and Zords. A few other Ranger fans from work gave me some inspiration and I just had to get something down while the idea was still fresh on my mind. I miiiight take an additional Red Dragon Ranger into consideration since the colors are based on the Rangers JDF portrayed and he played two different Red Rangers [Zeo and Turbo], but I’ll have to figure out how to make it special without making it too OP. Maybe a future descendant of one of the characters becomes the Red Dragon Ranger in the future and comes back to the past or something.

So this will be a smaller scale RP, probably with the same episodic type format that I’ve used often to further plots and character development in roleplays. If there’s interest I’ll post a CS template and we’ll try to get this going before the holiday weekend if possible.

I was so sad to see that JDF passed away. I had only recently got back into Power Rangers, having just finished Dino Fury on Netflix and planning to stock up on the comics for cheap this holiday season. So this is exactly the perfect time for me to do something Power Rangers related. This could be a fun way to remember the life of Jason David Frank.

@PatientBean@Dragonfly 9@Martian@mattmanganon@Tyler Night (yes, cause you liked the opener you get tagged too LOL)

Character Sheets MUST include:

Name -
Color - (Red, Green, Black, or White)
Age - (16-18, cause we're in high school)
Face Claim -
Personality -
Skills -
Background/Brief Bio -
Villain of Choice - [ANY era Power Rangers villain]
Notes -
Sample Post - [Couple paragraphs and a little dialogue... make it about your character in a class]

And here's a quick peak on the micros/avatars I'm making for this...



I'm sure the color of Dragon Ranger doesn't matter for some of you but I'm looking forward to seeing what y'all come up with. I'm hoping the cast is something like the Breakfast Club of 2030.

If you're interested in playing villains exclusively or some of the supporting characters like equivalents to Bulk, Skull, or Ernie let me know! I've still gotta develop the Angel Grove of the future!

What a wonderful tribute this is to JDF. I am sure he would really love this idea come to life. If I were still into Group rps I would definitely be interested in the PR ones.

@Martian Accepted! This is almost note for note what I had for a Black Ranger from a previous game, right down to the army brat thing. I don't think I made my Asian American a goth kid though, just moody.

@Dragonfly 9 I dig this character, but the Sample Post isn't quite the couple paragraphs w/some dialogue I was looking for. If you can give me a better Sample Post we can find a face claim for your guy.

I'm working on a CS [for the Red Dragon Ranger] now while waiting for my phone to charge. I've also got some images of the Red Dragon Thunderzord I'm gonna try to get recolored for the RP.

@Dragonfly 9Accepted!

Looks like we've officially got our White and Black Dragon Force Rangers! @Martian



So with me already working on a Red Ranger, we've really only got room for a Green Ranger and maybe some sort of special Red Ranger similar to Time Force.

Not sure if non-human rangers are allowed, but i've had this idea in mind for ages and wanted to try it out.

@mattmanganon While the Gold Zeo Ranger was one of my all time favorites, I sorta need a human female to finish filling out the immediate cast. I had an idea for something else last night if you're interested in working a new concept into the general idea though. I'll shoot you a PM and see what you think...

@Omega Man I'll be honest, I find the idea of helping with villains and monsters to be more appealing than playing one of the Rangers. Plus every Ranger storyline usually has to have That One Villain who's a cut above of the others and who can give the Rangers a run for their money for the duration of an entire story arc before finally being defeated. Wouldn't mind playing as THAT guy if at all possible.

@Double I'm kinda shocked, but if anybody was gonna play villains in a Toku based RP and do it well I'd imagine you'd be at the top of the list. My original plan was for the other Red Dragon Ranger to be evil, and I even micro'ed a concept look for him. The thing with Scorpina and the former prince of the Machine Empire becoming king was just me trying to tie some of the history together from what I could remember.

If you've got some ideas I'd love to hear them. Shoot me a PM, or find me on Discord!

@Omega Man Well what I think would be the easiest route would be to look at some monsters and villains from Sentai that haven't been adapted and, well, adapt them. That and you've already got the groundwork for what could be an elite enemy: the actual thief responsible for stealing Tommy's tech for the Machine Enpire.

@Double I'm not as familiar with the Sentai stuff other than some bare basics, so if you're game throw a couple villain CS's up and shoot them to me in a PM. I'm getting super excited just thinking about this lol.

Also, totally give me suggestions for minions to face, cause all I know are things from the Zordon era.
