    They're imaginary and have no thoughts or feelings, but they are also solid and can be perceived by others.
    in short, they are solid holograms only programmed to do what Masala believes they are, with no actual consideration for reality. they are in fact, actively detrimental to her search, because they don't actually hold any power to help her with her goals and only distract her from real efforts.

    Re-Posting Ryuichi in case it's needed later


    <Sasaki Ryuichi>
    Spoiler
    Show

    Age:Ryuichi ages slower (if at all) do to his genetics, and is able to alter his physical form down to the DNA with minor effort. His most common physical age is that of a teenager, and he tends to act like one as well.
    Chronological age: Approx 100
    Gender: Male
    Height: in his most common form he is 5ft. 3in.
    Weight: his weight never changes between forms, he's always just under 1 Ton
    Species: Ryuichi is half human; half dragon. His mother, a priestess who worshiped the dragon god, used the dragon balls about a century ago in order to wish him into conception. His father is an alternate form of Shenron: the eternal dragon
    Station: Ryuichi is a wandering fighter who searches the cosmos trying to find his "Deity father" whom he's never met.

    Description:
    Spoiler
    Show


    This is his most common and most comfortable form.

    His voice is that of a young adult, but as he can alter his body he can alter his vocal chords as well.

    He constantly smells of cherry blossoms, his mother's favorite flower as he's told.


    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Ryuichi is rather lighthearted at times, but he knows when to be serious, and will adopt a fiercely serious tone when needed. He's quick to make friends, and tends to see the good in everyone (at times to his own folly)


    History:
    Spoiler
    Show
    About a century ago a woman by the name of Sasaki Ushio sought something that we all in some way seek; love. She was born into a clad of priests and priestesses who worshiped the dragon god shenron. Being a priestess she was not allowed to wed, or engage in intercourse. This wouldn't have bothered her except that she had always wanted a child. It was this that drove her to temporarily leave on a mission that few had succeeded in. She went to find the dragon balls.

    After almost a full year of travels, and more than her fair share of adventure, she eventually found all seven (with help from some friends she made along the way) when they were gathered she went to a mountaintop near her monastery, a sacred place to her, and she brought the orbs together to make her wish.

    When shenron appeared she did something that perhaps no mortal had done previously: She had an actual conversation with him. She explained her life and asked shenron about himself and what he thought of the world. Eventually after an hour or so had passed, shenron told her that his guardian was growing tired, and she must make her wish. She had completely forgotten about that! She had planned on simply asking for a child; that was, after all, why she left in the first place, but she had better idea now.

    She wished to bear the son of shenron. He was silent for a moment as he considered. It was certainly within his power to make another Eternal Dragon himself, and putting it in a human shell was nothing.

    "Your wish has been granted" he spoke in his thundering voice, and her stomach began to glow, the light receding into her.

    Ushio then left her friends with heartfelt goodbyes as she returned to the monastery, happy with her wish and her baby on the way.

    She endured much criticism from her fellows, but as she technically hadn't broken any rules they allowed her to stay. She continued on with her duties until she was so heavy with child that she could no longer work. Sadly, hours before she went into labor she began to grow severely sick, and passed away as Ryuichi was born.

    The workers of the monastery had planned on at least caring for him until he could fend for himself, but were surprised to find he was already attempting to crawl and walk mere hours after he was born. He began talking before he was two months old, and his body grew out of its weak state within only a few years.

    One day, when Ryuichi was about five, the workers came in to find him missing. He had left in the night before; he didn't belong with these people who he knew secretly shunned him for what he had done to his mother. He left to find one of his mother's friends he had heard them speak of. A mountain man living on the continent.

    He trained with this man for decades, but the man was strangely cryptic, and refused to tell Ryuichi anything of his heritage. He lived with this man for fifty years, but he eventually died of old age, leaving Ryuichi on his own again.

    The man had mentioned something about his father being a very, very powerful deity, and as most powers came from beyond earth, he decided to leave the planet. Along the beginning of his travels he encountered what looked like a wormhole, he entered it foolishly to test his mettle, and emerged unharmed minutes later. Unbeknownst to him this launched him far back in time into an alternate timeline of reality.


    Story So Far:
    Spoiler
    Show
    During the last fifty or so years Ryuichi has been searching the cosmos for his father to no avail. Through his time he faced many powerful foes, even stopping at planet plant to have a sword forged using Sayan crafting and Tuffle technology, along with his inherent magic.

    He eventually caught wind of artifacts known as "dragon balls" that could summon a powerful being; this was his only lead so he decided to return to earth. He intends to use these to ask the being where and who is father is.

    After finding out his father was RyuShen, an alternate god form of Shenron, Ryuichi has decided to dedicate his time unlocking the secrets of his eternal dragon heritage. He plans on learning this throughout his travels. His current goal is to grow strong enough to unlock his magic himself.

    Currently he is travelling with the Rebellion with the intent to stop Hailing.


    Abilities:
    Spoiler
    Show


    CURRENT POWER LEVEL: 76,000

    Entered game at 38,000 PL

    MARTIAL ARTS
    Ryuichi has a literal century of training under his belt when it comes to martial arts and swordplay. He's learned every eastern style of fighting as well as styles from a multitude of other worlds.

    Due to intensive training with Que, Ryuichi's speed has been drastically increased. His speed at distances less than 1 Miles is only a half second slower than instant transmission.

    Ryuichi also has the ability to create an afterimage. Rather than using ki to move though, he simply moves so fast for a short distance that his image and ki signature remain in the previous location for a second. He can currently have up to 5 afterimages active at once. While they technically aren't copies, it has the effect of their being more than one of him for a split second.

    After seeing a combat maneuver even once Ryuichi can usually perfectly recreate it.


    KI
    He doesn't know many Ki abilities due to his general lack of need, but he has found some useful.

    Namely:
    Flight
    Instant transmission
    Break cannon
    Ki blast (generic and fire based)
    Kameahmeah and galick gun
    And explosive wave
    Given time he's able to quickly learn Ki moves, but must see them in practice.


    MAGIC
    He can also transform his own body, but these differences almost never affect his Power level. When he changes into a race he's familiar with he gains the abilities of said race. (I.e. Turning saiyan and then going super with training) when he learns an ability this way he can use it (or a variation of it) in all of his forms.

    He also knows how to use more general magic, but lacks the training to use it effectively in combat (aside from magical materialization)


    DRAGON SOUL
    (he does not know the name of this ability)

    he currently only has one form that increases his power. It's a form in which he transforms the individual atoms and cells in his body, as well as his mind, and almost every aspect of his body to go into overdrive. This multiplies his power by a factor of 9, and lasts for a maximum of 24 hours. The price is that then for the next 30 hours he has overactive damaged cells and lacks the strength to fix it, effectively giving him excruciating cancer and forcing him to rest until he can change back. He is not at risk of dying from the cancer, but is extremely weak during this time.

    The equation for this is currently: Power level times nine for X hours, then he is incapacitated for X times 1.25 hours

    As he grows in power he intends to raise the factor as well as lessen or do away with the aftereffect.


    Other information:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Ryuichi carries a sword he refers to as Talon. It can cut through anything, but cannot harm a good person.

    He also wears a robe styled shirt that is made of similar material to what friezas army would where in the future, his pants and boots are of the same make.

    Spoiler: Ryuichi's Alternate Timeline
    Show
    when Shenron's guardian eventually died he gave all of his remaining power to Shenron with one purpose: Make Shenron into an actual god. In the final moments his guardian made his own wish, that Shenron's life now be independent of his own.

    Over the years Shenron became earths protector and it's only deity, honing his ki and magic to become entirely individual of all other dragons past and present.

    He still answers to the dragon balls (by his own choice) and while his power is great enough to grant nearly any wish now, he still follows his own self appointed rules.

    Essentially all of the events in the show happened in this universe, but with slight variations that will probably never be specified.

    Make it count.

    Okay, I need ideas.

    The Red Planet Army probably won't feature a lot before 1) someone tries to get from space to Earth or 2) someone tries to get from Earth to space. They'll be up there, building a defense network in the asteroid belt to stop any incoming ships.

    It seems the RA will be coming back to Earth along with Apfel, will this happen soonish?

    Yamakami will reincarnate as something on Earth. Finding baby-kami might serve as a fun distraction for Masala and Lucifer, but I don't intent to play him (or her) seriously unless 10+ years suddenly pass IC. Could Yamakami be reborn as one of Lucifer's children?

    I'm not 100% positive, but I think Lucifer might be an ancestor to Mr. Satan.

    If he is, that would mean Kami would be part of that bloodline

    Well, first the RA will be dropping off all the Plant animals on New Plant. So, that'll take a certain amount of time.

    and then they will be going to Earth, which also take a certain amount of time.

    both of which will be about, if I remember the travel times correctly a week or two....? Question mark??

    So yes, soon, relatively speaking. It'll certainly be a surprise to see the defense system, though to be fair it'll be a surprise to Yama, Yenma, North Kai and such when they learn that Android 23 is now the Guardian of Earth, and that Oxyribo, Aspa, Pokasuu and Callins all gone off somewhere else.

    There's a travel time list in the first post OOC.

    I don't how far New Plant is supposed to be, but Ing could update it to include New Plant and Meal.

    @Hawkflight: No. They've only met Raijin (who died), Yamakami (who died), Lord Gero (who died), Guit (who died), Sol (who... I'm not sure. Merged with Fa, then died?), Luxana, Shanakan and the Red Planet Army.

    No he has not. He probably isn't expecting a strange time-traveling red-headed cyborg to be the new Guardian either. Nor is he expecting anyone else. He crashed when everyone else was off-planet on Plant remember?

Older and more primitive than hyper-light drives, they are severely limited by their atrocious fuel-efficiency relative to hyper-light drives, as well as the fact that they can only make short jumps of about 20-40 light-years at a time. Fortunately their fuel-inefficiency can be mitigated by fuel-scooping off of most main-sequence stars. Furthermore, they can complete these jumps in mere seconds. Crossing a galaxy with an FSD, however, is a tedious and time-consuming venture, and no FSD is capable of travel between galaxies. FSDs are still popular with explorers and pioneers pushing the boundaries of known space, however, as their ships are able to jump from system to system thoroughly and with relative ease.
    Is this an Elite: Dangerous reference?

    When I construct how the universe works and populate it with technology, species, and other things, I cannibalize sci-fi sources i'm familiar with and input them with the intention of making sure they work in a Dragonball universe. Frame-Shift Drives indeed come from Elite. The concept of the exterminatus of a planet comes from Warhammer 40k (though there's a significant difference in the way that if the Arcosian Empire subjects a planet to Exterminatus, it can be re-terraformed back to life. In 40k, Terraforming is a lost technology.) And I, of course, invent a few new ideas too. Hyper-light drives are an original creation.

    I''l explain it ICLY.. but Vodkana doesn't know anything.
    She flew very slowly, like a tourist.

    And Frozen, I haven't fully understood the idea of the Red Planet army.

    The Red Planet Army is an army of mechanized juggernauts built by Yamakami and Lord Gero. They want to conquer Mars, then the solar system, then THE UNIVERSE!

    ... or something.

    They have taken Trombone Jr. to serve as their nominal leader and are going to be up there at the asteroid belt, building defenses against space-bases threats. I'll elaborate more when someone interacts with them.

    Re: space drives:

    Starlight hypothesized Shenron travela by Alcubierre drive. This means that, like Artic explained, the moment power is cut from the engines the ship will slow down to sub-c speeds. In an Alcubierre drive, local speed of light is never exceeded - universal speed of light is violated by contracting and expanding space itself.

    Though if I recall right, frameshift (or was it hyperlight?) Drives don't violate local speed of light either - they alter local natural constants so that speed of light becomes something stupid.

    Frame Shift Drives ARE (more or less) Alcubierre Drives. Also, I will never learn to spell that word correctly without copy-pasting it.

    And you remember correctly how hyper-light drives work.

    Why is Alcubierre a difficult word?

    As a tangent, it is my headcanon that some semi-mystical feats of construction, such as Kami's lookout and the room of mind and time (aka hyperbolic time chamber) are both based on manipulation of gravity; the builder(s) just didn't think of what they were doing in terms of secular science.

    I'm mentioning this because this discussion brought to mind Artic's wonderment upon first seeing Korin's tower and the lookout, wondering how the hell a backwater civilization could make such thing without gravitics.

    Oh. I can make up invaders from space:
    Guit's relatives/army controled by Guit's relatives.
    People who have heard that Vodkana was last seen on Earth, and coming to take revange...
    the Dazonga Destruction Deleveries..

    Those are possible. However, I'd like to wait before Rebel Alliance is in general vicinity of Earth again.

    Sounds reasonable to me. While magic is an established thing in both canon DBZ and in game, well, who's to say the original builders just attributed the materais' unusual properties to magic?

    It's even funkier than saying "it's magic". Like science, magic too is a system of knowledge. If someone had said to Yamakami something like "ah, so you thought it was magic?", he would've likely said "huh? No, I just built it."

    Okay, three questions, two plot-related, one for fun.

    Plot-related: Who plays the kai of time? I'd like to RP addressing the question of why this universe even exists, when the Supreme Kai of Time should have removed it by now. (I have a couple of ideas as to why, though I'm interested in hearing others' opinions. Also, I know this is a ways off, but ... what do we do after we defeat Hailing? I was thinking it might be fun, once we've accomplished all of our goals, to timeskip to the present of DBZ and see how our changes have affected things.

    For fun: So, what do y'all think fusions of our characters would look like, and who would they be most likely to fuse with?

    I have no idea who's currently playing her, but if nobody else wants to I can. I'm pretty sure Rater was previously.

    I think a timeskip makes sense, although skipping to current time would be like 500 or so years.

    As for fusions. No idea what they would look like, or how precisely one character would be played by two.

    I think; 23 and 22 (no idea for name) seems pretty obvious, Arctic and Ryu (Ryuctic or Arctichi?) once they both get to know each other more, and Starlight and Vodkana.(StarKana sounds cool)

    I could also see

    23+Vodkana
    22+Starlight
    And MAYBE Ryu+Vodkana (not sure if there's Co-ed fusing)

    Though technically I think Ryuichi could alter his form to fuse if it's a problem.
    Make it count.
