The Saiyans: Unlimited

The Saiyans: Unlimited

The Saiyans have been hindered by natural biological limitations for too long. Now a brave group of pioneers in science attempt to remove those limits, but it is the products of their experiments who may yet pay the price for their innovation...

Introduction

Welcome everyone to The Saiyans: Unlimited!!

This RP departs from author Akira Toriyama's original designs in a few ways, so if the following points do not appeal to you then please move on and find another RP. Thanks!!

1) All Saiyans in the RP from the humblest farmer to the mighty King of Saiyans have a biological limit to how strong they can grow.

2) As a result of the above listed fact, the Saiyans are not the powerhouse they were in the anime/manga.

3) Thanks to this limited existence, they exist now under the subjugation of an evil overlord with power beyond imagining (not unlike Frieza), which is in keeping with Toriyama's original storyline.

4) There are no Dragon Balls in the RP, as the story focuses purely on the Saiyans.

(THE FOLLOWING is going to be the make-or-break change for most of you)

5) This RP is not canon to the Dragonball franchise by Akira Toriyama, and as such there are no Namekians, no Frost Demons, no Androids, no Majin Buu, no Beerus the Destroyer or Whis (angel attendant), nor any canon Saiyan characters like Vegeta, Goku, etc. As a result, Planet Vegeta does not exist either. The Saiyan Home World is simply known as the Saiyan Home World.




So, if you have read this are are immediately turned away by it then please move on and find another RP to join. I do not have the time nor any patience or tolerance for the people who say things like "No Namekians, no deal." I am above that kind of behavior, and it will mean nothing to me to shrug off such closed-minded statements and forget the fact that you ever existed. So don't bother.

Thank you!


Now, if you are still here... AWESOME!!

Please read on, because what follows is the story behind this RP and its intended course!

The Saiyan Race has been limited biologically since its evolution began hundreds of thousands of years ago. The Saiyan Race, despite being warrior centric in its culture, is incredibly advanced scientifically and has developed its own technology for training, detecting power levels and energy signatures, inter-stellar travel, etc. As a result, they are responsible for designing power-reading devices like the Scouter and other large-scale power reading computers on board larger ships.

They also invented Ki-Shielding material similar to lead which blocks Ki signatures from being detected on a straight-away line of sight from a power reading device. For example if an individual with a power of 10,000 was behind a single solid wall of Ki-Shielded material and powered up to maximum, anyone on the other side of the wall without line of sight to the individual would not be able to detect their power with a Scouter. But the moment the Scouter can detect the entity behind the wall (via the user moving around the wall), the Scouter will detect their power as normal.

It is this Ki-Shielding material that will be important later, so please remember it!

Now, a group of scientists grew obsessed with helping the Saiyan Race break through the biological limitations they currently are plagued by. Their goal is to help the Saiyan Race evolve, with the help of science, into a state where they will be able to breach the limits set upon them by their genetics and achieve power unimaginable. The primary reason for this venture was the fact that the Saiyan Race was subjugated by the aforementioned evil overlord who possesses power that cannot be read by Scouters or even the most advanced power-reading device without overloading its circuitry. He's that powerful.

So to combat this, and to help the Saiyans evolve at the same time, the organization created the Saiyan Limit Breaker Project, or SLBP for short.

However, the King of Saiyans deemed this to be an insult and contamination of Saiyan pride and culture, and forbade it from coming to be. He outlawed such practices with the threat of death by execution, forcing the scientists mentioned above to continue their experiments in Ki-Shielded underground bunkers on a backwater planet far from the Saiyan Home World.

The first test subject was the unborn daughter of one of their own scientists who volunteered for the project. The infant was subjected to DNA injections via a long syringe through her mother's lower abdomen. This DNA was crafted by the scientists based off her mother's own genetic code, but modified in ways that were meant to replace her existing DNA and thus remove the stands which they believed were directly responsible for limiting Saiyan growth. The child was carried to term and born without a hitch, but for six whole months it seemed the project was a failure.

And at last, a breakthrough.

The child had a temper tantrum during which her power level shot through the roof (for an infant) and breached 200 which was unheard of in Saiyan history for one so young. After several blood tests, it was discovered that although her genome had not changed, her body had attacked the introduced DNA, assimilated its properties, and adopted them as its own. Her Saiyan body, true to its warrior ancestry, had conquered an invasive foe and evolved in ways they hadn't expected. Her original DNA blueprint remained unchanged, but had adopted the properties which now allowed her to break through the limits previously held by not only her own mother, but all other Saiyans as well.

Not only that, but the infant accidentally rolled off an examination table which broke her left arm and cracked a few ribs. After splinting the arm and sedating her to prevent an outburst, upon healing her power had risen exponentially. Only an infant of 10 months of age, and her power was already almost 1,200.

The experiment was a HUGE success.

Over the next year they tried and failed to reproduce their success on already-born infants. The original child's mother suggested they go back to their original method despite the risks associated with it. After a long debate, it was agreed to that they would return to the unborn injection method. The method proved successful, but at a price. Out of 50 pregnant mothers who volunteered for the test, only six babies were carried to term and the rest died from health complications. Of those six, two died before they reached one month of age after birth.

It was a success, but not the kind of success they'd hoped for.

Now there were five Saiyans in total alongside the original who now had potentially unlimited power.

But at this time, one of the disgruntled test subjects secretly ratted them out to the King. They discovered the betrayal and sent the five children away to another world to be looked after by a sympathizer to their cause who had never officially joined them and would never publicly admit to doing so. They also destroyed all evidence of their success and erased all information about the launch of their space pods from record to protect them. The children would be safe there.

But the scientists, the original child's mother, and all those who had been involved with the experiment were executed by the King upon their forced return to the Saiyan Home World.

The five children landed on the backwater planet where the sympathizer lived, a world known as Rixiith 0442, and looked after and raised by said sympathizer. Her name is Leyra, and she became essentially a mother to all five children and raised them with both strictness and love. She also taught them all they'd need to know to be true Saiyan Warriors, as well as how to suppress their ever increasing power levels to make sure that the rest of the Saiyan Race never found out that they had anything to do with those experiments. The King was aging, and would soon die and take the memory of the experiments with him. When a new King was crowned, or Queen, they would be free to show the rest of their race who and what they were in all of their extraordinary glory: The evolution and future of the Saiyans.

But for now, they remain in hiding while living in plain sight on the Saiyan Home World. They have all joined a Planetary Raid Group (PRG) together led by the original subject who serves as their Commander. Suppressing their power levels has become the key to their survival, as the evil overlord would slaughter them in an instant if he found out about their increasing power levels. To survive the subjugation of their race, they must hide and develop their powers in secret. But their leader has been helping them do that since day one.

They train together on worlds at the edge of the galaxy, far from the prying eyes of the overlord or the King of Saiyans. They are on alert at all times as a PRG, and can use their worm-hole technology to quickly return to the Saiyan Home World if needed. But they are all driven by the same desire to discover a power far beyond even the imagination of the overlord himself. A power they can all sense lying dormant deep inside. A power... Which has unlimited potential.




Characters!!





The following rules of character creation must be adhered to, otherwise you will not be allowed to join the RP. Thanks!

1) You must contact me about your interest in joining the RP before you submit a character to it. If you submit a character and THEN contact me, or don't contact me, the character will be rejected and you will be forever barred from joining the RP.

2) No Meta-Gaming, Power Playing, or God-Modding. The use of any of these three offenses will earn you an instant one-way ticket out of the RP. If you are unsure of whether or not something you want to do treads the line or crosses it, ask me before hand. Otherwise, the risks and consequences are on your head.

3) Adhere to the "Power Levels" discussion page and read all the rules listed within about how to keep track of your character's power level.

4) Your character MUST be 24 years of age due to the fact that all children in the experiment born after the original subject were all born at relatively the same time (meaning within a few weeks of each other). No exceptions.

THIS IS THE BIG RULE!!!


5) There is no such thing as "equality" in this RP.

We will get to what this means down below. But for now, the character sheet!!

Code: Select all
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Picture:[/b]

(if you can combine these into one image with photoshop, please do so!)

[b]Age:[/b] (Must be 24)
[b]Sex:[/b]
[b]Height:[/b]
[b]Weight:[/b]
[b]Body Type:[/b] (Mesomorph, Endomorph, Ectomorph... This matters)
[b]Voice Type:[/b] (Women (high to low): Soprano, Mezzo Soprano, Alto, Contralto. Men (high to low): Tenor, Baritone, Bass, True Bass)

[b]Preferred Weaponry:[/b] (If your character fights with weapons, list them here)

[b]Combat Style:[/b] (Hard, Mixed, or Soft? Don't understand? Ask.)

[b]Saiyan Rank:[/b] (There will be an explanation in the "Discussion" Thread.)

[b]Starting Power Level:[/b] (This will be for yours truly to determine after you've finished the rest of the profile)

[b]Suppressed Power Level:[/b] (Somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000)

[b]Personality:[/b] (AT LEAST one full paragraph with NO FEWER than five sentences in it)

[b]Powers and Abilities:[/b] (Please list your character's personal techniques here, as well as the Limit Breaker Technique which is on my characters' profiles. You can copy and paste it into your own.)

[b]Biography:[/b] (NO FEWER than 3 paragraphs, each of which must have NO FEWER than five sentences in each one. 3 paragraph bodies. 5 sentences each. NOTHING ELSE WILL BE ACCEPTABLE. Thank you.)


So what did I mean by "no equality?"

Simply put, it means that we are not going to all have the same power levels and be "equals" to one another.

At any given time, subject to my determination as the GM, one of the characters in the cast will be the strongest of the group and another will be the weakest.

This doesn't sound fair.

You're right. It's not.

But hey, there's a silver lining.

I said that whoever is the strongest is the subject of my determination as the GM. That means I'll be reading the IC posting very carefully, and I will also be determining for the sake of relative fairness who is next on the list for a Zenkai-like boost of power. If your character is stuck in the weakest position, they won't be there for long as they are the most likely to receive the next Zenkai. Those who are the strongest, conversely, are far less likely to receive a Zenkai unless the story, as it develops, seems to make sense to do so.

As well, I will be the one to determine where your power goes after a Zenkai-boost. If I say your power could reach up to a certain threshold, that's as high as you're allowed to take it. I will be using several IC factors to determine how high your power can go including, but not limited to the following:

1) How many injuries the character has sustained
2) The severity of each individual injury
3) The strength of the enemy they faced
4) How long it took to recover from the incident
5) The circumstances of their healing from the incident

As the GM, I will be moderating our power levels throughout the RP so you don't have to worry about it. All you have to do is play within those power levels and be sure that you keep things realistic and consistent. If your character's power level is around 80,000 to start, and I put your character against an enemy NPC who's power is 120,000, your character should struggle to defeat them.

Every time I do a combat RP, everyone loves to think that "skill" and "experience" win the day even if the power difference is fairly high... Not so.

This RP and its power levels determine everything. If your power is more than 30% lower than your opponent's, you will struggle to defeat them as their power level will give them the speed and reaction times to defeat your "skill" and "experience". Even the best combat instincts in the world can't overcome sheer and overwhelming power.

Need proof? Goku vs. Broly in the film Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan.

Broly's combat experience in the film was mainly just destroying worlds at his leisure because of how powerful he was. You can see in his movements and technique choices that he's actually not that good of a fighter. And yet he was able to withstand Goku's strongest techniques and all coordinated efforts thrown at him. He even dodged Goku and Piccolo's attacks despite never moving from his spot and being so much larger than them due to his muscle mass.

Conversely, Goku has incredibly skill and experience in combat and was using every trick in the book to try and defeat Broly. But he couldn't do anything until the very end with everyone giving their energy to him in order to finally succeed. And even then, it was a bit of a deus-ex-machina moment which I think shouldn't have happened. It was kind of a lazy way to end things in the film if I'm being honest.

Anyway, back on point. Power differences will determine how well or poorly you do against an enemy. If you try to get away with dominating an enemy with a power more than 30% below theirs, first offense receives a warning. Second offenses are a one-way ticket out of the RP.

The higher the difference in power, the more you struggle.

If your power is more than 50% lower than your enemy's, they can kill you with a single well-placed blast of Ki to a vital area. Think Cell blasting Piccolo through the stomach before he absorbed Android 17. That's what your enemy can do to you with a power level that's twice what yours is. So if you're pitted against such a being and want a power boost, let them blast at least one hole through you even if you manage to evade a lethal strike. Remember Piccolo's mouth blast through Goku's upper right shoulder area in the original Dragonball? That kind of wound is one your character could survive and receive a Zenkai boost from.

That leads us to one final rule about characters... You may NOT have your character eve power down and get blasted just to receive a Zenkai. Such a move will earn you an instant one-way ticket out of the RP and your character will simply be killed by the blast because they will fail to receive the help they need in time to heal from the attempt.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope to see you guys soon!

Totoma smirked at the challenge. "You know very well that's not all I have!" His aura flared around him, accepting her challenge. He gave a slight chuckle before charging forward like a bull. "I'll make sure not to disappoint you with this next attack!" Quickly he closed the distance between them readying to land a powerful punch.

Kurosa smiled at his acceptance of her challenge.

This was getting more and more fun with each passing moment, and she had a grand plan for Totoma and Era both.

She'd been working on a new technique. One which required precise timing to work. She called it the "Reversal," a technique in which she did something rather simple, but incredibly effective.

By using her Ki as a rubber band, she could force her body to absorb impact force, let it flow through her body via the use of her Ki, and then ricochet it back to its source through any other part of her body. Usually, this would be done through a punch. But any point of contact would do. The Ki and impact force flowing into her from her opponent would flow through her in a flash before being sent back into the opponent via a simple touch.

She prepared her Reversal technique for Totoma. The instant he made contact with her, it would be over.

His 3.5 million power would strike a momentary wall when he touched her before the force was thrown back at him, kind of like if he just punched himself with his own full power.

It might not knock him out, but it would certainly surprise him and give her a chance to knock him to the ground to end their scuffle.

Totoma rushed through the air, he found it odd the Kurosa seemed to be just standing there waiting for him to come. But he threw out the thought assuming she just wanted to end things. So he rushed her without thinking and hit her with a devastating punch.

Kurosa's desire was met, and Totoma smashed his fist into her left hand as she brought it up to block.

She immediately put her new technique into action, and it all happened in a split second.

The instant his fist made contact, the impact force and his Ki entered her body. It traveled up her arm, to her shoulder, through and down her back, to her feet, back up her legs, up her back, to her opposing shoulder, down her arm, and into her fist as it found its way to his jaw in the blink of an eye.

Empowered by her own incredible power and Totoma's Ki traveling through her body, the blow came too fast for him to block as he was still moving towards her. The blow connected with his jaw, and a massive shockwave was created as the fist struck home.

Kurosa watched with a smile as Totoma was hit with his own power, and Kurosa's, all in one horrifically powerful punch.

Totoma look of shock was only hidden as he went spiraling downwards toward the ground at a terrifyingly high speed. Yet moments before hitting the ground he managed to regain control. There he floated mere yards from the ground wiping away some blood from his lips. His body ached but he was sure nothing was broken except maybe his pride. "I was hit with my own attack. Yet it felt stonger." His mind raced through what had happened, he couldn't figure out how but he had some ideas on how to potentially get around it. Soaring back into the sky he picked up speed rushing back towards Kurosa.

It looked as if he was going to try the very same attack again yet right before getting within striking distance he vanished from sight. A split second later he reappeared behind Kurosa before vanishing again. He bolted around her at extreme speeds causing what appeared to be after images. Kurosa new this attack well it belonged to Jaoco, one of their fallen family members. "Don't think your the only one who has learned anything new."

Kurosa watched Totoma fall towards the ground, but he was able to regain control before hitting it. He flew back up towards her, and began the after image technique Jaoco had loved to use.

"Nice try, little brother. But you're going to have to attack me sooner or later." She declared.

Kurosa knew the after image technique very, very well. Jaoco had taught her to use it a long time ago, in fact. But she didn't use it because it took her out of her natural rhythm.

Kurosa, meanwhile, began to let her aura flow around her body freely. And, at the same time, her body was now starting to glow red. The glow grew brighter and brighter, and this was the beginning of another new technique she had never shown to Totoma or Era, and one which she had never used either.

This was the technique's maiden voyage.

During her early 20's, Kurosa had intensely studied the properties of Ki and methods of Ki transference used by the Saiyan race. One thing she had discovered was a previously only theoretical method for Saiyans absorbing ambient Ki, aka Ki from the environment they were in.

Kurosa called this technique the Ki Vacuum.

In the case of this world, there was not a huge amount of flora or fauna. It was a largely barren landscape. However, there were trees here and there, bodies of water with creatures living in them, and the very air itself around her.

On worlds with great amounts of flora and fauna, as well as a healthy atmosphere, she would be able to absorb much more Ki, and do so at a much faster rate.

This world didn't have much, but it did have just enough. Every millisecond that Totoma spent using the after image technique, he was giving Kurosa time to absorb ambient Ki from her immediate environment to increase her power level. Era, with her Scouter still equipped, was watching this process unfold.

"2.7 million... 2.75 million... 2.8 million..." She whispered to herself as she watched from a distance.

Kurosa's power was rising by the second. If Totoma didn't attack soon, Kurosa's power would match or surpass his own. And if she closed the power gap completely, his chances of winning would become remote.

Totoma laughed as he saw Kurosa's new technique. "Interesting, but I think you've been underestimating me this whole time." Suddenly all the after images vanished and Totoma launched his attack from behind, however rather than attacking he instead locked her into a powerful hold. "I don't care about winning! I just enjoy fighting, so I don't care if we draw!" Without warning, Totoma flared his power before propelling themselves together towards the ground. The rushed towards the ground at an extreme pace, Totoma's hold only tightening. "It's a shame I haven't perfected my other technique, we would have a really fun battle then." He was prepared to slam into the ground with her.

Kurosa smiled as Totoma came in for his final attack. Grabbing her around the torso, he locked his hands together and pulled her in tight. However, he was not breaking her concentration or preventing her from continuing to draw in energy. As such, Kurosa kept getting stronger.

They flew towards the ground, and Kurosa simply continued to smile.

Era watched with bated breath, touching down to the ground on her own as she watched them race towards the ground. And her Scouter was still going off.

"3 million... 3.5 million..."

Kurosa's smile vanished as she felt her power even out with Totoma's, and she began letting out a shout of effort as she used her smaller frame to her advantage.

Totoma's grip around her stomach was advantageous for him as far as keeping her in his hold, but it was also a disadvantage.

Kurosa wasn't exerting effort on him. She was exerting it on her Aura.

They neared the ground... Mere feet before time seemed to halt completely.

Kurosa's Ki flared wildly and propelled them to a partial spin in the air at the last possible instant before hitting the ground.

Totoma struck the surface of the planet on his back with Kurosa held tight to his chest... Safe and sound, and not a single part of her body touching the ground as that confident smile had returned to her lips.

With Era already down and having given up willingly out of awe for their power and ferocity as warriors, and Totoma now on his back on the ground, Kurosa was officially the winner of this challenge.

She never touched down.

"Nice try, baby brother. But the only sin I'm guilty of is this time is letting you underestimate me." She said.

She looked up at him from over her shoulder.

"I win." She said with a chuckle.

Her Ki began dropping back to normal, resting at 2.5 million as she tapped his arm to signify she wanted him to let go of her.

Totoma laid there smiling. "Like I said never cared if I won. Besides, I now have a hold on my full power. Now I can focus on other parts of my training." He released his grip and just laid there as he allowed his power to steadily drop to around 2 million. Slowly he sat up shaking the dirt from his hair. "How're your ribs? I felt them give a bit when I kicked you." He looked at Kurosa with a mildly concerned look. As he tried to stand up, his legs gave out beneath his weight causing him to fall back to the ground. His body was sore and wasn't fully adjusted to using his full power as he did, even though he hadn't received any real damage his body didn't want to move properly. Now with control over his power, he would have to work on utilizing it properly, but for now, he was content with just laying in the dirt.

Kurosa chuckled as she was released and he inquired how her ribs were.

"They're fine. Nothing a quick stint in the rejuvenation chamber can't fix in an hour or two." She said.

Era jogged over, happy as a clam.

"That was a beautiful finish you two!" She said, clapping for them.

The three of them all went back to the ship together, the girls helping Totoma back, and all jumped into rejuvenation chambers to restore their stamina and reduce their fatigue.

But the day was still young, and the planet still open for exploration and training. And at 100x gravity no less.

Totoma stretched for a few moments after getting out of the rejuvenation chambers. "I always feel so stiff after being in those things." He sniffed his hand out of habit. "And I hate the way that stuff smells." with a quick walk around the room he was happy that the soreness was gone and couldn't wait to get back to training. "So what are you two ladies going to do with the rest of your day?"

Kurosa, having been damaged, received a small Zenkai boost from the training event. Now with her power resting comfortably at 2.6 million instead of 2.5, she was eager to get back into it.

"I'm thinking it's time Era and I had a real battle so I can see what she's made of."

Era chuckled nervously.

"You ready, Era?" She asked.

"I'm ready and willing to train, yes." She replied.

Kurosa, however, was noticing something different about Era. A sort of calm confidence Era had never possessed before. Era was doing a good job of making everything appear normal outside, but she couldn't avoid Kurosa's knowing gaze. But, for now, Kurosa brushed it off. She'd find out in due time.

"Okay then. Time for a little one on one with big sis. Let's go." She said.

With that, they flew up into the skies and prepared to do battle.

The pair floated in the air silently for a long time, just... Staring at one another.

Era was... a complete mystery to Kurosa now.

She endured the same gravity training on the way in, and her growth rate in the first stretch had been higher than either herself or Totoma's growth rate.

So why?

Why was Era the "middle" child right now among the group?

Something wasn't adding up, and Kurosa had a feeling that Era was far more powerful than she made herself out to be. 2.8 million, given her growth rate, was about half of where she should have been.

"Era."

"Yes, Kurosa?"

"I don't want you holding back anymore, you hear me?"

"Pardon?"

"I've known you since you were born, Era. You think I can't tell when you're hiding something from me?"

"I am not hiding anything, Kurosa. I promise."

Kurosa's eyes narrowed.

"We'll see." She whispered to herself.

Kurosa darted forward, and the battle began between the Saiyan sisters.

Kurosa held a clear advantage right from the start, with her superior battle instincts and experience overwhelming Era's defenses early. But to Totoma, who knew both women well, he would see that Kurosa was not battling Era as her sister or a mere training partner.

Kurosa was fighting Era, and by the look in her eyes she intended to win.

Kurosa smashed Era in the stomach with a brutally placed kick just above her hip where the flesh of her stomach was softest, causing Era to cough out a large amount of saliva as she was thrown back through the air. Kurosa appeared behind her and smashed her downwards with both fists. But rather than let her hit the ground, Kurosa appeared beneath Era and kicked her back up into the air. The kick to her back knocked the wind from Era's lungs and made her cough out saliva again. But this time there were a few stray drops of blood as well.

Era stabilized herself, but Kurosa appeared behind her and kicked her across the head. Era was sent flying once again through the air before being punched in the stomach by Kurosa before she could recover. And when she had recovered from this blow, Kurosa was already in her face, grabbed her head, and forehead smashed Era down towards the ground.

Era hit the ground, hard, and Kurosa landed at the edge of the small crater Era's impact had created.

"Stop holding back, Era. I know you have more power than you want to show."

Era, her face becoming bloody from the wound on her forehead from that last attack, slowly looked up at Kurosa.

"I swear I'm not hiding any power, Kurosa... (Cough)... After we reached around sixty times gravity, my body adjusted more rapidly and I stopped gaining power like I did early on." She pleaded.

Kurosa was not buying it.

"Era. You're lying to me. Show me your hidden power, or I'm going to hurt you." She growled.

Kurosa's Ki flared around her body, and she began powering up in preparation to launch an attack.

Era slowly made it to her feet. Blood trickled down her face, between her eyes, around her nose, and past her mouth to her chin before falling to the ground. Her stomach and back were in incredible pain, and she was having trouble breathing properly.

"Kurosa. It's not power I've been hiding." Era finally admitted.

Kurosa's Ki disappeared, and she relaxed her body with a rather shocked expression.

"It's not power?" She asked.

Era shook her head.

"No... (Cough, Cough)... It's... Something else." She said.

Era dropped to her knees, holding her stomach as she looked back to Kurosa. Her vision was getting blurry, and she was having trouble staying conscious after the beating Kurosa had given her. Brief as it had been.

"I can... Feel... Other beings." She said.

"What does that mean?" Kurosa asked, coming in close to support her shoulders and help her sit up straight.

"I don't know... Exactly... But... I can feel other beings. You. Totoma. Even small animals with barely any Ki... I didn't know what it meant... Or even how I am doing it... But I was waiting to... Learn what it was... Before saying... Anything..."

Era collapsed forward into Kurosa's arms, the latter supporting her gently and stroking her hair.

"I'm sorry, Era." She whispered.

"I should have just asked right off the bat, but I was sure you were hiding power. Not a new technique." She said quietly, kissing Era's temple.

"Let's get you into your rejuvenation chamber. You really will be more powerful now." She said.

She picked Era up and flew her to the ship to place her in her rejuvenation chamber.

The Saiyans: Unlimited

Hello everyone, and welcome to the "The Saiyans: Unlimited" Discussion Thread!

Here is where we will conduct the majority of our discussion and communication unless you guys want to go through the chat page instead. It would be faster, but this would be permanent so we can always go back and look at the info. The chat page doesn't let you do that, so we can move back and forth depending on the situation if need be.

For now, let me explain a few things about the RP for you to make it easier to make your character!!

1) Saiyan Rank

The Saiyan Ranking system is as follows from most authority to least authority, and as you can tell it's highly militarized:

1) King/Queen
2) Royal Vizier
3) Chief of Planetary Security
4) Chief of Military Operations
5) Commander of the Vanguard
6) Commander of the First Line of Defense
7) Commander of the Rear Guard
8) General
9) Commander
10) Colonel
11) Lieutenant Colonel
12) Major
13) Sergeant
14) Vanguard Spearhead
15) Vanguard
16) First Line Spearhead
17) First Line
18) Rear Guard Spearhead
19) Rear Guard
20) Foot Soldier

Within the ranks of General on down are also two classes, First Class and Second Class. A First Class General has more authority than a Second Class General.

What makes them First or Second Class?

Power Level.

A First Class General must have a power level of at least 30,000 to qualify for the rank. A Second Class General must have a power level of at least 25,000.

The First Class variant always has authority over their Second Class counterparts.

As well, a Second Class General still has more authority than a First Class Commander.

Make sense?

Awesome!

Now, all Saiyans are inherently part of the military. There is no enlistment. The entire Race is part of the military and will fight if need be at the drop of a hat to protect themselves and their brethren against any and all threats.

But outside of militarized operations, there are also Planetary Raid Groups (PRG's for short). This PRG's have a much simpler chain of command:

1) Commander
2) Lieutenant Commander
3) Everyone Else

Simple enough?

Good.

There are not First or Second Class variants of these ranks, so don't worry about that.

Lastly, combat styles.

Soft styles are those like Kung Fu which involve a lot of fluidity and momentum manipulation rather than direct force to engage an enemy in combat.

Hard styles are those like Muay Thai which are very direct, almost violent self defense arts.

Mixed styles employ techniques and strategies from both hard and soft styles.

That should be everything you need to know in order to make your characters!!

I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!!
