Millions of years ago a peaceful alien race, known as the Yinlao, came to earth with a a great and mystic treasure in an attempt to hide it from the vicious space tyrant "Karkunga". To do this, they bonded 15 crystals to the souls of dinosaurs which acted as their guardians. Unfortunately, this did nothing to stop Karguna's ambitions to conquer the universe. So to ensure that both the Yinlao and the dinosaurs were wiped out, he had and his soldiers used the tractor beam on their ship to hurl the largest asteroid they could find at earth, thus driving the dinosaurs into extinction. But, a handful of the Yinlao miraculously survived... sadly though, the 16 gems remain scattered all over the world. With no means to collect their sacred treasure, the remaining Yinlao had no choice but to hibernate for 65 million years for their strength to be restored and their base to regain power. Karkunga and his forces was not exactly doing well either, turns their ship drained more power than they calculated when they drove the dinosaurs into extinction... So they too would have to wait our a long 65 million years in cryo-sleep for their ship to regain power. So eon have passed, and as time went by the crystals have found by inhabitants of the blue planet and have been transformed into powerful warriors, Power Rangers. Some have used their newly acquired talents for good and keep the world safe from danger. Others use the power of the crystals for their own malicious reasons, like greed or revenge. Regardless of the reason, they would all soon find them selves fighting under one of two factions... Salama's Protector's (Salama is the high priestess of the Yinlao) and Karkunga's Raiders, who will triumph in the final battle? Only time will tell.
Summary and Rules
Hello everyone, If you have read this far down, it must mean this RP has caught your eye and you are interested in taking part. Well before we get to you making your character, let me give you an abridged version of the story. Aliens came to earth to run away from other aliens and have scattered crystals all over the world, each with a unique and special power. The crystals transformed the first humanoid organism they deem worthy with into rangers (this includes very bad people), and in time said rangers either joined the Yinlao in their fight for peace, or with Kargunga and his space pirates in his warpath for intergalactic conquest. You as the player (depending on your faction), bust help their dreams see fruition.
Now let's talk rules, can't have fun without them can we?
1. I should not have to say this, but don't god mod. Ranger's are powerful but even they aren't invincible.
2. Each player may have up to two characters.
3. Combat between players is welcomed, we are going to be fighting each other after all. BUT, all parties MUST agree on the final outcome or else it will end in a draw by default.
4. Zords can only be based on creatures from the Mesozoic Era, 230-65 MYA. AND NO ARTHROPODS! Fish, amphibians, reptiles, and birds are all fine (And obviously Dinosaurs are allowed too). but I'm going to have to say no to anything that doesn't have a spine. Every Ranger get's a zord.
5. All questions should be asked here, so I can properly set up a Q&A.
6. This RP will cover some rather, child unfriendly subject matter. Such as alcohol, drungs, abuse, even murder... Although Adult Language is allowed, pornographic sense are prohibited. You can swear, but you can't fuck. if you want to fuck, try and make it pg-13... Or try another forum if that's what you are into.
7. No repeating Zords. No repeating/redundant powers.
8. We will have a Prologue, depicting the recruitment of the Red Ranger (one of my characters), keep this in mind.
9. Yes, there will be Mega Zords. what they will be depends on why you make your Zords... So think Carefully. The Weapons of a Mega-Zord are also determined by the weapons of the zords that form it.
10. it's first come first serve for slots, so it you want in you best reserve you place(s) now
11. Have Fun, it's a Role Play. Our first priority is to wright something great, so chill bro.

Background: (Brief backstory here)
Zords are powerful mechanical creatures that can combine with one another to fight giant monsters (or each other). They can also fight on their own if need be, but they are not as powerful as they would be if they teamed up with others to combine into Mega Zords. Every Ranger has a Zord they can call upon at anytime, though this is usually best used when monsters get larger or when the enemy brings in zords of their own. There are two types of zords, Cores and Augments. Cores as the name suggests are used for the Base (Usually the Torso) of the Mega-Zord, While Augments are used to make the Mega-Zord's limbs and/or weapons. Although there is no inherit limit to how many cores or augments either side can have, keep in mind the best teams have a healthy mix of both.
Zord Type: (is your zord a Core or an Augment)
Primary Weapon: (What is the Go-To weapon of your zord?(Where is it located on the zord?))

Apperance: Kyle is 6'0", with a toned physique. He has Short, messy blonde hair and blue eyes. is also clean shaved and has a flawless complexion.
Personality: Usually, Kyle keeps to himself. But he isn't unfriendly, he actually quite nice and easy to get along with... Even if he gets a bit loud sometimes. He's the kind of guy who thinks before acting, and takes time to adapt and absorb some of the more absurd encounters and events. However, even though he puts thought into his actions, he can often act reckless in desperate situations.
Faction:Salama's Protectors or Karkunga's Raiders
Ranger Color: Red
Ramger Power: Super Strength - The indomitable might of the tyrannosaurus grants Kyle greater physical power over the other rangers.
Background: As The Newest Member to the the Protectors, Kyle finds himself still getting used to being a ranger. But before he dawned the red helmet, he was just a simple citizen trying to help his family get by. His dad is an officer of the local police station, his mother died in a car accident a year ago, and younger sister is in the hospital in need of an operation. But, Kyle's father barely makes enough money to pay for the medical bills and the house... An Operation is simply too expensive, and thus Kyle's Sister remains hospitalized while barely being kept alive by medical equipment. Kyle was hear broken to see his sister suffer like this, and he couldn't very well just stick around and do nothing about it. So Kyle though about options about what he could do, but nothing seemed to be enough to help his sis pull though. Until One day, a news broadcast announced that the local dinosaur museum was getting a rather interesting tyrannosaurus skeleton... One that had a rare jewel trapped in its jaw. Something like that had to be worth a fortune, but he could possibly think about stealing it could he? Running out of options and getting desperate, Kyle decided to try to steal the gem and sell it on the black market. Once he tried to execute his plan though, the gem bonded to him and transformed him into a power ranger! And the days that followed from that day forward were anything but bland.

Which is how she landed a very strange job from a tall man in a burly cloak, he wanted a black gem that was going to be transported to some science lab that worked with dinosaur fossils... Lucy didn't think much of it at first, money is money no matter what the job is. Though when it turned out she was the one the black gem bonded to, she had a whole slew of questions to ask her client. Turns out that "Client" was none other than Karkunga himself, and he had a new job offering for her that she couldn't possibly turn down... "Bring me the other gems, and I will make you the richest woman on the planet!", since that Day Lucy has been working with the Space Pirates ever since, and she doesn't regret it a single bit.
