: Advanced Plot Summary
: The conflict between Princess Serenity and Queen Metalia has ended. Earth has escaped the Dark Kingdom's oppression, but it has been forever changed..
Metalia's strength was great enough to push the gem's power to its limits, fracturing and shattering the precious jewel into seven shards. Infused with both light and dark energies alike, these crystalline slivers have instigated a phenomenon that was named "Fracturing" by the scientists who first observed its effects. Physical contact with these crystals has, thus far, resulted in an irreversable crystallization of the human body. Other solid matter has also been affected, though at a much slower rate. In spite of The greatest fear which persists in the world is that its water supplies might be threatened by the Fracturing.
Aside of the Fracturing itself, Metalia left another foul gift behind for the inhabitants of Earth. Her baleful influence oozed its way into the minds and hearts of the world's rulers before she was forever banished by the Silver Crystal's light. Rather than pool their resources and aid those who were most deeply affected by the spread of petrifying crystals, they began to squabble and argue over natural resources. These conflicts of words accelerated at a horrifying pace. The best diplomatic efforts were soon overtaken by conflicts of iron and blood. Sun-forged spears heralded the end of the old status quo, giving way to darker times.
Today, the world is in dire need of the sailor senshi. They were granted refuge in Capsule 49, one of many government-sponsored shelters designed to shield its inhabitants from the horrors of nuclear devastation. But over time, their monitoring equipment registered a different danger - an advancing Fracture that threatened to freeze the entire installation in motionless crystal. When the inhabitants became aware of this danger, two brave young girls volunteered to venture out into the post-war landscape to seek out assistance with Capsule 49's evacuation. After some heated discussion, they drew straws to determine who would stay.
Months later, as the Fracture begins to contaminate Capsule 49, Aino Minako has returned with a drifter named Jasper. Together, they have restored a bus with which to ferry the surviors to safety. Escaping the deadly crystal growth will be but one of the many trials they face.
Unlikely allies are found in the form of Professor Tomoe and his intelligent, yet clumsy assistant Anya Katayeva. Both are opposed to the expansionist policies of an invading military force, while holding their own ulterior motives for assisting the senshi with their hunt for the Silver Crystal fragments..Details on any necessary information
: The setting will take place within Australia, and later shift to Japan. The fragments of the Silver Crystal fell into both nations, with Japan having suffered the worst ravages of Fracturing. Having stayed out of the world war, Australia instead chose to carry the surviving Japanese refguees to safety and offer them shelter until a more permanent solution could be found. They have settled on the northern coastline of Australia near the city of Darwin.
- The timeline of the RP is approximately 5-15 years into the future after Tsukino Usagi first transformed into Sailor Moon.
- The inner senshi have reincarnated, though without the memories of the recent tragedies that gave birth to this shattered timeline. The inner senshi begin play knowing each other through their association in Capsule 49, though Minako may initially seem different to them by virtue of her experiences.
- All of the playable characters will not be subject to the petrifying effects of the Fracturing. It is this strange immunity which permits them the chance to cure an ailing world, for better or for worse.
- Eagleland is the overt villain faction, with President Buren in command of the nation's military forces. Meanwhile, Tomoe and Anya plot to summon their Daimon master, Pharaoh 90, to Earth in order to usurp it from the meddling human empire. Both parties compete against one another to secure the legacy of the Silver Crystal.Restrictions
