Super interested! Sticking to the featured species is a motion I support, too. As far as filing a lawsuit against Toei, Yamcha is currently battling them for custody of his balls so you're probably in for a wait.
Head on over to the OOC and get cracking at a character.
How you looking, fool? One half-decent paragraph. Black / Dark brown hair is a must. Anything else is open season.
| P E R S O N A L I T Y: |
A pragraph or more is appreciated, but keywords will also do the trick.
| T R A D E M A R K: |
What is your trademarked move? How does your fighting style set itself apart from those around you? Are you blast-based, more of a fists first kind of person, or do you use a weapon? Signature moves could be listed here as well, but are not required at all.
| S K I L L S: |
Personal talents not-connected to fighting. Are you an engineer? Dabbled in some Tuffle tech? Perhaps a Diplomat?
| B I O G R A P H Y: |
I do not expect anything too fancy here. Detail some character building moments. More than likely, most people's backstories will be pretty similar. You fought, you fought and then you fought some more.
Sheets should be posted in the OOC tab till they are accepted, then they should go in here. I do not want to see any WIP sheets in this tab.

We all know the story of how one young girl on a quest to find seven magical orbs - how she ran her motorcycle into a young boy who had lived in the woods his entire life, and how that little boy, Goku, would go onto become not just the savior of Earth, but the entire universe, and perhaps not just his universe. We know about his hardships and his story, the friends he made and the foes he fought. The family he created, the children he created and the legacy he left.
This, this is a story completely different from that. This story is one about the greatest warrior race in the entire universe, how their pride was shattered by a tyrant, and one last, desperate attempt at removing the Frost Demon's foot from their heads. This is the story of the renegades, the wildcars, the mavericks. The pathfinders of a dead civilization and their struggles in a brave new world far away from everything they ever knew.
This is the story of the Saiyans of The Primal Fury. We will play as The Elite, born into greatness, the leaders and commanders of the Saiyan army, and the Low Class warriors,the disposable grunts. Those that thanks to a cunning plot of the King, were sent away to a new galaxy, far away from Frieza's plan to eradicate the Saiyans to craft a new path for the Saiyan race, to carry on their legacy.
Circa 1000 years ago - The Original Super Saiyan God is born and his offsprings are the ones who become the dominant species of Planet Sadala.
100 - The warrior species of planet Sadala takes the name "Saiyan", the caste system begins being put in place and the line of noble birth, The Saiyan Chiefs, four brothers are made to each rule over a clan.
445 - The Saiyan Chiefs begin their mayor conflict and the Sadala civil war breaks out.
505 - Planet Sadala's reduced to nothing mroe but ashes, the fierce wars of the Chiefs have lead to nothing more but bloodshed and chaos.
550 - A strange meteor crashes to the planet, and a troop of Saiyan scouts from one the biggest tribe discovers this meteor. It's revealed to be a spaceship, and while they savagely destroy the people onboard of the vessel, they have the virtue to not reduce the spacecraft to rubble.
550 - The Saiyans create a truce to escape their doomed planet and take the stolen spacecraft and set off towards another destination - Plant.
560 - 695 The Saiyans are met by the Tuffles, who's advanced technology baffles the Saiyans. The two coexist peacefully for a time, but Plant has a moon - one that Sadala never had. A civil war breaks out in 600, and the war lasts all the way till 690, when the moon is full, and the brilliant warrior Vegeta launches a full-scale invasion on the Tuffle capitals. The advanced raise is eliminated, making the Saiyans once more the dominant species of their world. This time, they are united under one leader who rules with an iron fist - King Vegeta. They rename their planet in the honor of their King.
700 - The Saiyans have made the Tuffles techology just about their own, using it to become intergalactic space conquerors. Taking any resources they need from other planets. This brilliant strategy further solidifies King Vegeta's legacy and his near deity-like status.
725 - Planet Vegeta is invaded by a mysterious force and a short war happens. The Saiyans are for the first time matched in strength by these warriors, brandishing tech capable of matching their own. The last defense effort is made by King Vegeta and his royal guard, creating artifical moons they use the incredible powers of the Great Ape form, to seemingly claim victory from the jaws of defeat. That is, till the purple-faced demon appears. Lord Freeza and his Galactic Empire. The Planet Trade Organization, lead by his clan. While he intended to destroy the Saiyans, seeing their strength being able to destroy many of his underlings, he gives King Vegeta a choice. Swear undying loyalty to the Galactic Overlord, or perish. The King bowed his head and began serving Frieza.
726 - From this point onwards, the Saiyans were part of the PTO whether they wanted or not. They began conquering planets on a much grander scale than they had before, systematically destroying civilizations and selling them to the highest bidder at Lord Freeza orders.
730 - The Saiyans are more than fed up with living under the Frost Demon's boot and there are murmors of a rebellion in the background. King Vegeta silences any of these rumors as soon as he catches wind of them. The King takes a queen, Toota.
732 - Prince Vegeta, a member of the Super Elite is born.
735 - Prince Tarble is born. Queen Toota's caught within a scheme to overthrow Vegeta and replace the King with another who is willing to stand up to Freeza and fight for the Saiyans rights. The King finds out about this, but when he is about to confront his beloved and her fellow rebels, he finds Zarbon in the room, Toota's corpse in his hands. Zarbon told the King that Lord Freeza had just spared the entire planet, and if anything like this ever happens again, every single Saiyan, including his two sons will meet the same fate as his wife.
736 - The King creates The Primal Fury plan after descovering a prototype-spacecraft in old Tuffle ruins. The ship is kept off the books from Freeza's forces and a massive conspiracy is created to give the Saiyans but a glimmer of hope.
Early 738 - The battle of Kasaar is supposed to have happened here. Every line of communication between the Saiyans and the Planet Trade Organization indicates that the battle was a crushing defeat for the Saiyans and that those responsible for this embarassement would all be executed on-planet. This was all a ruse and a well-constructed plan, and an excuse to get the members who would be on the ship to be on-planet at the same time. A way to get them off the grid and to avoid the spies of the Frost Demon.
Late 738 - After a faked mass-execution, the members onboard the ship are exiled from Planet Vegeta and are thus sent into the Northern part of the universe, farm from the grasps of Freeza and his ilk.
Well, it's Dragon Ball, with a somewhat darker tone than the earth-centric story we all know and love. Our main characters are not heroes, but anti-villains at best. Serving a self-serving goal of vengence, survival and a thirst for power. Walking on uncharted territory and encountering species none of their kind have ever met before. While details of the universe - such as the timeline has been changed, the big stuff are the same. The universe has magic, technology and martial arts at it's center. Obviously, as we are pretty 'weak' compared to the later parts of the story, there will be no mention of the realm of Gods for the foreseeable future. The Saiyans uses technology much like in the series, battle armors and scouters.
The alien species, planets and culture we will encounter will be many and varied, but a Saiyan has no fear and is prepared for anything.
It's the ship, yo. W.I.P.
1. The GM's word is law. When the GM puts the foot down, that's final. Though, the GM's a fairly reasonable fellow. 2. Don't be a dick. If you have concerns, voice them to the GM, and it will be handled from there. Drama will not be tolerated. That being said, friendly gibbering or 'trash talking' is fine. Butting heads is appreciated, but try to keep it respectful. Keep the dirty fighting for the In Character. 3. Do not godmod, don't metagame. We're playing Saiyans, the odds of butting heads are pretty big In-character. Try to keep your E-peen ego in-check. GM will step in to resolve any battle twists from the in character. 4. Let's try and make sense off this wacky universe Toriyama built. Try and keep things 'grounded', even as we do get up in the higher levels of power level. 5. All increases in Power Level has to be discussed with the GM. No "I got hit in the chest and got a 800% Zenkai boost." BS. The point is to write a story, to to stroke our E-peen or write out our DBZ power-fantasy. 6. Posting requirements are one - two paragraphs per post. Though, this is a pretty fast and loose point, I'd rather have someone post 4 1 paragraph posts per week than one 4 paragraph post a week. One Post a week is the minimal activity you are expected to keep up with, and unless special reason has been given your character will be controlled by the GM till your return to move the story forward. 7. I reserve the rights to modify this rule section at any point in time. 8. All information on this OP is subject to change. Change back often and frequently, even though I will do my best to inform of any change. 9. TFS references are limited to maximum of one per post. I will not have everyone screaming "I AM THE HYPE" At the top of their lungs every single fight, thanks.
