Communities in this Victorian world are being threatened by something that they can only call the “Fading”. Whole communities have been swallowed up, leaving straggling migrant refugees. Her royal majesty’s airship fleet is suffering losses from vanished ships. No one knows what is causing things and people to simply disappear right in front of witnesses’ eyes. Only a few town remain as yet unaffected but it is spreading.
When young Grace Katherine Hart's father, the fleet admiral goes missing, her and her team of friends (OCs from a story I have been writing) stumble upon an old poem tucked into a book that speaks of five legendary warriors who will break the curse with the power of an invaluable gemstone called the imperium silver crystal.
They sort of misread the poem, and believe they have to find five women who they can turn into legendary warriors through the use of science and technology. So they put an ad in the paper promising adventure and fame, and get to inventing. Lucky for them, and unbeknownst to them, the women who do answer the ad in fact are the planetary senshi! They do not know of their senshi identities so at first they are equipped with invented weapons and such that just coincidentally are sort of in line with their powers. But as things progress they begin to awaken for real. Their mission is to figure out how to find and awaken the crystal as well as discover the source of the "fading" and confront the one responsible.
Simultaneously the prince of Earth (and possibly the shittennou) are also living in this time ignorant of who they are. He is the son of a wealthy earl and has been knighted for previous service by the queen. Queen Victoria has come upon the same legend and seeks to find the imperium crystal as well to save her people. She sends him out on a mission to find and retrieve it. When he meets the incarnation of Serenity and falls in love, he will wrestle with the fact that his mission goes against theirs (only one party can have the crystal) and will wrestle with himself between love and duty, only to find out that his love is actually the key to both of their missions. - (This will only be included if we have someone to play this part.)
The main villain is another creation of mine is in the works, a man who was taunted as a kid for a birthmark covering almost half of hi face, was spurned in love and in life, and has decided that clockwork machines make more sense, are more productive, and better than humans. He has discovered a new technique through a mix of alchemy and science where he is able to "translocate" (read: teleport) objects and people. He is kidnapping them on a massive scale to enslave them in order to have them assemble am army of mechanical clockwork men and weapons to take over the world. The airships he steals for parts, materials, and aether engines to power his operation. He will create all sorts of mechanical monstrosities to attack the remaining townships and the senshi as well as other factions will have to engage them to get to him.
On the side, there will be other forces trying to steal the crystal. There is a female seamstress who always wanted to be a chemist, but was never accepted due to her gender. She will be working under the main villain. There will also be a lovesick mad doctor who is trying to obtain the crystal to bring his dead wife back. He may later team up with the main antagonist as well.
Details on any necessary information: The senshi will start off without powers, wielding only steampunk-era invented technology. But over time they will begin to use their powers to at first augment this tech, and eventually to access their elemental abilities without this technology. They do have a transformation into steampunk-styled senshi outfits.
RP Goal: To find the silver crystal, figure out who is causing the "fading" and neutralize the enemies. And maybe if we can get Darien and the shitennou...to fall in love. But this is optional.
Restrictions: Not currently looking or otaku senshi but we are looking for villains o work with our main antagonist. Steampunk civilians are also welcome.
