  • Alyss: I hope not!

  • Edgewise: ...Please tell me this rpg hasn't been abandoned for the second time in six years. Please.

  • Edgewise: Omg stay warm, everybody!  ;__;
    November 19, 2014, 01:00:04 PM
  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD
    October 19, 2014, 12:15:33 PM
  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD
    October 13, 2014, 07:05:13 AM
  • Brenna: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?
    October 11, 2014, 08:50:34 AM
  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM
  • Ingrid: Thank you <3
    September 23, 2014, 09:33:18 AM

    September 17, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
  • Alyss: Please do! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.
    September 15, 2014, 01:02:17 PM

Iron Angels

Who are the Iron Angels?

The most powerful beings in the Vega System, both politically and physically, are Empress Sin and her Iron Angels.  There is no person in the Vega system who does not know them, and no person who does not have some fear of them. 

The Iron Angels were created by Sin to replace the Revolutionary Senshi, who were deposed when the coup occurred eight years ago.  Human society, for the last two thousand years, has operated under the comfort and knowledge that there were Senshi out there to protect them, so when the Revolutionary Senshi were removed, Sin needed to install her own team.  So Sin, using her research of royal crystals and sailor starseeds, was able to craft nine artificial starseeds and imbue them with similar powers and magic that a Senshi would have.  She scouted for nine extraordinary people, and either voluntarily or involuntarily, refitted them into superior Coppelia bodies and installed the artificial starseeds into their chests.  When the Iron Angels were presented to the people, beautiful, brilliant, and shining, they were presented as undying heroes who cared for the people far more than agents from Sol ever could. 

As guardians of their given planet, Iron Angels enjoy tremendous political and military power.  While they cannot officially overturn laws made by the governor, they may employ scare tactics or threats, which usually helps them get their way.  An Iron Angel has the power to declare a state of emergency on parts of their planet, or even the whole planet, and they serve as the general and leader during this time.  One of an Iron Angel's primary duties is to squash the Resistance whenever they start making moves, and so they may declare a state of emergency to quickly react against the threat and do forced searches of businesses and homes. 

There are two additional duties given to Iron Angels: 

The first is to be an excellent role model and figure for promotional propaganda, and Sin is very, very strict on making sure that her Iron Angels are flawlessly beautiful people wearing glamorous and awe-inspiring things.  Sin wants the people to admire and want to be like the Iron Angels, and does not take kindly to behavior that makes the Angel seem less than divine.  Iron Angels also are honorary Ministers for their guardian planet, which is the political title they assume when involved with Vegan bureaucracy.

The second is to serve Sin as a special agent, specializing in whatever talent they had as a human that made them remarkable.  Seren, the current Sailor Lapis, was recruited for being an ace hacker, and thus aids in network security for Sin.  Dr. Arji is a brilliant doctor, and Dr. Sullivan is a brilliant scientist, and they both continue working as such in addition to their other duties.  Other Iron Angels may be great spies, gifted warriors, or geniuses of some kind or another.   

But why do the Iron Angels fight for Sin?  That depends on their own particular agenda.  Some Iron Angels believe in Sin's vision of a utopia of enhanced humans who will never die, and live without temptation or pain in cyborg bodies.  Some Iron Angels are in personal awe of Sin, and do not want any harm to come to her.  Some of them may simply crave beauty, strength, and power, and have been rewarded with those gifts as an Angel.  And of course, there are Iron Angels who never craved any of those things - they were Resistance fighters against Sin in their mortal life, and brainwashed into her service after they were captured.

FAQ

Each Iron Angel has a Deadly Sin as a sphere.  Does that mean my Angel has to be guilty of that sin?

Not necessarily, but that Deadly Sin should be very important in their personality or history in some way.  Sailor Lapis, for example, with her sphere of Lust, does not have to be a nymphomanic.  She can, however, be really clever at manipulating people's desires; or conversely, perhaps she despises casual sex and seeks to punish adulterers. 

Sin purposefully gave her Angels spheres of Vice so that they can manipulate the base emotions of her enemies, and expose the weaknesses of those who oppose her regime.  But she did not imagine that her Angels might be so imperfect as to fall for those vices themselves. 

So working with the Iron Angel's sphere can be an exercise in irony, or you can play it completely straight.  Up to you!


Sin picked only very talented people to be Iron Angels.  Do they still use those talents to serve Sin?

Absolutely.  While the Iron Angels must serve a symbolic role as saviors of the people, they have two additional missions - to be the 'guardian' of their planet who squashes prevent chaos and rioting, and also to execute special missions from Sin which she could not trust to anyone else.  Sin may not trust a normal Coppelia with a certain high-profile mission, so she may send an Angel gifted in spywork, negotiation, and politics to deal with the situation instead.  Iron Angels are part of Sin's close network of confidants, and will have information and privileges that few others do.


Have the Iron Angels remained the same nine people for the past eight years?

Sin would have absolutely tossed out and replaced Iron Angels if they were not acting up to her standards.  Some of the Iron Angels may have served since the coup, while others have 'retired' after a 'glorious career' and have moved onto Heaven so they can 'enjoy the rewards of their service'.  So it is up to the player how long their Iron Angel has been in power. 


How are Iron Angels different than regular Coppelia?

First off, it would probably help if you took at look at the Coppelia team page.  It will answer a lot of basic questions about the shared qualities between Coppelia and Iron Angels.

Usually they are made from superior materials, similar to the indestructible materials used to create Sin and her bodyguards.  Unlike Coppelia, Iron Angels do not have a fuel cell and do not run out of power, and instead are powered by the artificial starseed installed in their chest.  Iron Angels tend to be more seamlessly human in appearance, and are more expressive than Coppelia are.  While Coppelia tend to have their emotions and morality suppressed, Iron Angels generally have the same range of the emotions as before - but the enhancements made to their brain may cause those emotions to become more subdued or extreme compared to how the person was as a human.

Taking out an Iron Angel should be akin to taking down the Terminator - it is nearly impossible for a human to do unless they have some kind of mechanical or magical advantage.
