Star Army is heavily inspired by anime, of course. But it's only about 70%-75% anime, on average. Over at Zenjinkaze we try to keep things hovering around 80% anime.
What if we went full anime?
I am interested in introducing a new faction to the site that is 120% anime. It will not just be inspired by anime. It will be anime. Your catgirl wouldn't have to have years of genetic research involved in her creation (unless that's how you like your catgirls). She can just be a catgirl. Our mechs won't be hampered by boring things like physics and mass. Our martial artists won't need inertia controlling artificial organs, just chi. Our magical girls will use real magic, not just technology indistinguishable from it. Our zombies are soulless husks, not corpses animated by alien parasites. Dragons, just, in general. You get the idea.
Here's the basic premise: a massive chunk of land amalgamated from a wide variety of alternate universe versions of Tokyo unexpectedly materializes in the Star Army universe. This may possibly involve @Alex Hart and his Exodus Fleet along with the WIP Starlight Road. He's done some of this faction stuff before, so he might be able to keep me on the right path. This new entrant to our universe brings its own technology, magic, physics, rules, etc. contained within its home space. The first Open RP plot would be concerning its appearance and arrival, and possibly involve a threat to it and/or the Exodus Fleet.
After that, we would hopefully have more GMs interested in either running smaller plots within the discrete sections of the merged Tokyo, or ones that would work with me/Alex to run larger ones involving all of Tokyo, possibly interacting with the Star Army universe at large. We could have regular SA characters enter the plots or cross over with this faction, and once the faction/meta-plot has gotten firmly anchored in Star Army we could even have characters/plots from this faction moving out to join/interact with other plots in the wild.
I would like to build this idea around a few main 'pillars' of extremely anime content:
- Super Robots & Space Battles
- Henshin Heroes
- Impossible Martial Arts
- Supernatural & Paranormal
- Swords, Sorcery & Souls
- Combat 4 Kids
I will be trying my very best to run this as by the book as possible, clearing it through the NTSE under the same guidelines I've seen any other universes appear with, and following the rules for similar new factions. I'll probably need some help, as I'm fine with writing text and prettying up wiki pages, but not so great at figuring out all the content I will 'legally' need to have.
