  • Edgewise: Omg stay warm, everybody!  ;__;

  • 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 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

Revolutionary Senshi

Who are the Revolutionary Senshi?


The most common kind of senshi in the universe is the planetary senshi, who are the holders of a starseed tied to the power of a planet of a solar system.  When that planet gains a certain number of sentient life and beings, the starseed reveals itself to the most deserving of those people, and a Sailor Senshi emerges.  The Revolutionary Senshi are that kind of senshi - they are the guardians of the planets of the Vega system, powered by those planets and entrusted with magic and relics to aid them in their mission to protect Vega and its ruler. 

Though, this is not the case right now.  Eight years ago, when Princess Phoebe's party was assaulted by Empress Sin's forces, the Revolutionary Senshi of Vega were also thrown into complete chaos.  Nearly half of the team was killed, one of the members was forced into a cybernetic body and false memories, and the others were driven into hiding.  After the coup, Sin promoted propaganda insinuating that the Revolutionary Senshi were all children and cowards who only took orders from Queen Arienrhod, making Vega little more than a colony under her control.  While there are people who still believe in the Revolutionary Senshi, there are many more who believe that the entire team is dead, or worse - that they are all cowards, and will not come out of hiding to aid the Vegan people. 

They were hiding, but with purpose.  Princess Phoebe has grown up since the coup, and is now old enough to fully utilize the powers of Sailor Eurydice.  In response, the other sailor compacts will resonate with her heart, activate new powers, and start pulling all of the Senshi back together through fated encounters.  They will have to take down their mechanical counterparts, the Iron Angels, who seem to have every advantage in power and resources.

But they do have an ace up their sleeve.  The starseeds of the Revolutionary Senshi have a special quality not seen before in other starseeds of the galaxy.  Vegan planetary starseeds have the power of evolution, giving them abilities that allow for a high degree of adaptability in the currently dangerous landscape.  Within the past eight years, the starseeds have evolved powers suited to help keep the Senshi under Sin's radar - the ability to use magic without a henshin, communicators, and disguise powers. 

The Revolutionary Senshi are split into two groups - the Old Guard, who were the Senshi who served Phoebe at the time of the coup eight years ago, and the New Guard, who are newer warriors who have taken up the mantle of a fallen Senshi.  The Old Guard has the advantage of experience and their years of training with the Sol Senshi, while the New Guard have the optimism and faith which may have been beaten out of the older Senshi.

FAQ

Are the Revolutionary Senshi reincarnations?

Nope!  The original bearers of the Revolutionary starseeds were the Ancient Vegans, and those Senshi died 6,000 years before game start, along with the rest of Vega.  The current Revolutionary senshi are just regular people who grew up in the Vegan system, and have no special ties to a past life or anything.


How were the Old Guard senshi discovered?  How were they trained?

Queen Arienrhod had a dream about the Revolutionary starseeds nearly 22 years ago, and so she learned the true names of the Vegan planets, and also gained access to the Vegan starseeds.  That was when the process of finding the people who suited those starseeds began.  Some of the Old Guard senshi were directly selected by their Sol counterparts - for example, Adelita, the first Sailor Orpheus, was named the heir by Sailor Pluto.  Most Old Guard senshi had to prove their worth against other candidates in talents suited to the starseed's power, so Vaness, of the Atalanta starseed, proved herself to be the smartest and fastest of the candidates. 

Once heirs were officially named, they were trained in the Sol system for a few years under the Sol senshi (the newer incarnations of Sailor Mars, Sailor Uranus, etc).  They were trained in the proper use of their powers, martial combat, strategy, and other skills meaningful to their spheres.  After they were officially done with training, they were free to come and go from Sol to Vega - going to see their families in Vega, and getting to know Phoebe and each other back in Sol.   They were all together on Phoebe's birthday in 3961, when Sin launched her coup.


How are starseeds moved from one senshi to another?

Because the inherent flexibility and adaptability of the Revolutionary starseeds, the starseeds know when it is time to get out, and will move in a variety of ways.  The most common reason for the transfer is if the current senshi dies, in which case the starseed either transfers itself (in the case of Phia and Pwyll, though Pwyll got a little something extra), or else the starseed remains in the henshin compact, inert, and waits to be transferred to its new owner (Kit). 

It is also possible to transfer a starseed while someone is still alive - Adelita, the first Sailor Orpheus, voluntarily gave up her starseed while she was alive and transferred it to Roimata directly.  The starseed may also recognize when someone is unfit for their starseed, which usually has more to do with emotional and moral states than physical fitness, and may choose to leave their senshi because of that. 


Tell me more about Mithras!  Like why is he/she not a full Sailor?

Mithras is a special snowflake, that is why.  6,000 years ago, when the ancient Vegan society fell, during some point in the last war the planet Mithras was blown up, and Sailor Mithras's starseed was shattered.  Shards of the starseed became the starshards for the Asteroid Senshi, while the broken Mithras starseed fell into slumber. 

The person who possesses the Mithras starseed now was chosen by the starseed, and has been aware of their power for at least two years.  They have become a trusted operative of the Resistance since then, working in disguise.  Mithras has some of the abilities of the other senshi: Mithras is able to create disguises, use a communicator, has access to inherent and free magic, and has a relic, the Dagger of Comradery.  But Mithras cannot transform into a fuku, cannot use a henshined power, and cannot help in powers that require multiple senshi, such as Sailor Teleport.

(The best part is, nobody in Vega right now is aware that there ever was a planet called Mithras.  It will take some ruin-digging and adventures for that fact to come up - and later, the secret as to why the planet was destroyed may emerge as well.)
