This IS an RP server. It's set to PVP mode because EXGenesis has permabanned multiple dozen people from all RP servers.
Join us on Skype for Server Info, Updates, Assistance, and more!
Ranks exist for the good of the playerbase and server-wide RP, NOT to powergame for one's own character. Ranks that are NOT contributing to RP for UNRANKED players, or Ranks that are not active (this includes AFK Training constantly without so much as an emote/logged interaction with another player in serveral days) for longer than 3 days without prior notice will be STRIPPED of their rank, and potentially DNR'd (Do Not Rank'd) for the remainder of the wipe or until the RP President decides otherwise. Rare/Locked Races follow the same guidelines for minimum required activity.
Let's promote great RP for the whole server and have a great time!
To apply for a rank, submit a Pastebin RP App to an Admin, and then, if accepted, you will take a Real-Time RP Exam, in which your understanding of RP ettiquette and rules will be tested.
The Ranks available are listed below....

By now you'll have noticed that the Learn list seems pretty...empty. There's good reason for that! It doesn't make IC sense for someone to sit alone for years, punching a split, and suddenly...DEATH BALL! Right? Because of this, and to encourage character and rp development on this server, I've decided to implement something new: A Skill Tree-esque system, wherein characters must first satisfy certain prerequisites in order to learn more advanced techniques. One should understand Sokidan before Death Ball, and Charge before Sokidan, right? That's how it'll be.
Most moves may be RP'd for, and it can be done simply by typing out an emote of sufficient length and notifying an admin to review it. Submissions may also be made via pastebin, but they must include: Key, Character, Align (current), Move being RP'd for, followed, of course, by the actual rp.
Once a skill is learned, you must wait 6 IC Months before applying for another skill!
If approved, please copy and paste the rp into emote to make it canon to your character.
The skills and their prereqs are as follows:
Power Control is required for all advanced moves Charge + Beam = Power Control
Blast, Beam, and Charge are all basic and are available on Learn. Blast is a burst of ki, Charge is a gathered burst, and Beam is just a complete dump of energy funnelled in one direction. All of these require only basic concepts of ki ICly, and should be RP'd when learned, but do no require approval. The techniques/transformations below are available to ALL races, unless otherwise stated:
Telepathy (as "telekinesis") + Power Control = Shield
Charge + Telepathy (as "telekinesis") = Sokidan > Kienzan Sokidan > Death Ball > Big Bang Attack (only when taught by SE Saiyan) Death Ball + Sense 3 + Telepathy = Spirit Bomb (With NK training) Power Control + sense 2 = Kaioken (with NK Training) Power Control + Shield > Shockwave > Self Destruct Charge > Sokidan > Kikoho (Crane only) Power Control > Giant Form (Namekian and Makyo only.)
Zanzoken + Sense 3 = Instant Transmission (With training from Demon-God of Despair)
Zanzoken + Sense 1 + Telepathy = Splitform
Telepathy + Power Control + Sense 3 + Meditate lvl 2 + You must have been Reincarnated at least twice. (Not including Reincarnation by Death, also not including Reincarnation by Self) =Third Eye (non-android only) (NOT to be taught.) (Note: If you permadie (Die while dead) You will lose Rank-Taught Skills, as well as Third Eye, as your soul is destroyed and your past lives no longer exist either. A list of skills are as follows:
If we've missed any, please make an admin aware. Thank you!)
The following is learnable without Power Control: Meditate lvl 2 Sense 1 > Sense 2 > Sense 3 Telepathy > Observe (OOC skill)
Any other skills you do NOT see and want to RP for, please check with an Admin first as to whether they are attainable or not. Thanks! Beams can be "named" using the Rename verb and selecting Beams. When you edit this, it will change what your character shouts when firing a charged beam, but it will not change the macro. A great way to add to your IC! (Note: Reincarnation, as a skill, is -not- to be taught/learned. It is known by select few and that's the way it should be.)
Technology is much more complicated than skills. In light of this, I've created a new system by which Tech Application RPs will be scored. This new method favors the more intelligent races, actually making some (most) technology UNAVAILABLE to those races of lesser intellect. Now, that might sound restrictive. "How will Saiyans get ships and pods and scouters, then, Blitz?" Simple! They RP with those that have them, be it by buying them (thus creating an in-game economy!) or stealing them or just working WITH them! It is my sincerest hope that this will help ENCOURAGE RP between players, and will help prevent straight up sit-in-a-corner-powergaming-until-I'm-OP-for-reasons style of gaming that is so prevelant on DU official servers.
This also means that intellect is just as important an IC characteristic as power is! Playing Tsujin is relevant again!
To do this, I broke up the races in 5 Intel Tiers:
Using these tiers, I then developed an equation, a formula, which will "cap" races AND provide those with better RPs to score higher, and thus have a better chance at getting higher level technology than others! A human who is terrible with RP is less likely to get some tech than a Saiyan who submits a 10/10 RP! BUT, there are many items that are going to be out of reach via RP apps for many races, as well.
Here is the formula:
((RP App Grade + (IC Int Tier Level x 2 )) x 5) -5 = Final Score
Allow me to demonstrate:
A Saiyan RPing for a piece of tech vs a Human doing the same.
A Saiyan with a perfect score of 10/10 on their RP would have their equation look like this: (10 + (1)2)5 = (10 + 2)5 = (12)5) -5 = 55. Saiyans, and other Tier 1's, are only capable of a MAXIMUM score of 55. Whereas Humans would be
(10 + (5)2)5)-5 = (10 + 10)5)-5 = (20)5)-5 = 95. Humans are capable, along with other Tier 5's, of attaining the highest possible grade, a 95, on Tech App RPs, but ONLY with perfect RP scores. If humans got a 1/10. they'd wind up with
(1 + (5)2)5)-5 = (1 + 10)5)-5 = (11)5)-5 = 50. A full 5 points below that of a top RPing Saiyan. It's a versatile system, and, I believe, encourages players to think and act more like their IC Race and Character, and less like an all-powerful warrior who ALSO happens to know how to friggin' build rocket ships (unless maybe they're Tier 3 or 4!)
Head Scientist Ranks receive a +5 to their app scores automatically, meaning ONLY HS ranks can receive perfect 100s and unlock the highest tier tech.
You may NOT type an RP Application for multiple tech items at the same time in one App. You may not use pre-typed or previously submitted apps, either. The only time this is waived is if you are resubmitting an altered app that previously failed.
Being a Head Scientist rank, or the Tsujin Bio-Weapon/Mainframe will automatically boost your scores on apps +5 pts!
To that end, here is the list of Technology open for Application.
Modules -- Score Required: Extendo Arm -- 60 (Cost: 200,000 / intel) Breathe In Space -- 75 (Cost: 50,000 / intel) Cybernetic Armor -- 80 (Cost:1,000,000 / intel) Antigravity -- 80( (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) Cyber Charge -- 80 (Cost: 300,000 / intel) Cyber Laser -- 80 (Cost: 300,000 / intel) Overdrive -- 85 (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) Brute -- 85 (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) Generator -- 85 (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) Blast Absorb -- 85 (Cost: 1,500,000 / intel) Decline Increase -- 85 (Cost: 100,000 / intel) Scrap Absorb -- 85 (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) Auto Repair -- 85 (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) BP Scanner -- 85 (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) Giant Version -- 85 (Cost:1,000,000 / intel) Force Field -- 85 (Cost: 1,000,000 / intel) Scrap Repair -- 90 (Cost:3,000,000 / intel) (Not to be installed if Rebuild is installed) Rebuild -- 90 (Cost: 3,000,000 / intel) (Not to be installed if Scrap Repair is installed) Manual Absorb (Cost: 5,000,000 / intel) -- 90 This all that's legal for now.
If you've previously RP App'd for, and been approved for, tech...you may then simple emote and notify an admin to create more of that tech. You may RP for 5 of an item at once in one RP.
There will be a 6 IC Month wait period between Tech App RP submissions, similar to the Skill App RP wait period. The purpose is to pace things out and keep people from spamming myself, the admins, or the server with a chunk of random tech all at once.
Take your time with your applications, and most of all. HAVE FUN!!!
