Tenipuri 5 is an RPG that takes the characters of tenipuri and places them in a Babylon 5 universe. It requires only very brief knowledge of the B5 series which is provided in the following info.
Tenipuri 5 It is the dawn of the third age of mankind, the middle of the twenty-third century. Man is far from alone in the universe.
The Babylon Project was conceived in the aftermath of the Earth-Minwabi war. Modeled after the United Nations, it would be a meeting place, neutral ground where the powers could meet and work out their differences peacefully.
The first three Babylon stations were sabotaged in mid-construction. The fourth was completed, but just as it was about to go online, it vanished without a trace. The Earth government would have stopped there, but some of the alien governments, seeing the value of a meeting ground, offered financial assistance for the construction of a fifth station. Naturally, there were strings attached.
Inspired by the success of Babylon 5, other races, hearing of the station and its purpose in providing a platform for peace talks, decide to try for a similar ideal. Peace stations pop up all over the galaxy and in a system far from the Babylon 5 station, Tenipuri 5 is constructed to act as a platform between a wide range of races constantly at war.
Details The Tenipuri Collective are a group of representatives from the worlds in the same system who meet on the station to discuss political matters and ensure peace is maintained. However, they have a great deal of trouble getting along and their attempts often dont go as planned. The fallout of their meetings often takes its toll on the station and the worlds involved.
Tenipuri 5 is maintained be a dedicated crew and is legally owned by the planet of Seigaku, a democratic society whose President is Ryuzaki Sumire, the head of the Tenipuri collective. Members of the collective are the respecitve coaches of the tenipuri teams. Eg. Sakaki for Hyoutei.
Every week the Collective will release a report detailing what has occurred in their meetings and announcements will be made concerning how the report will effect those living on TP5. These reports will be released to the TP5 comm, which must be friended by all players.
Rikkaidai are the most violent of the planets and have for decades sought to enslave several of the other planets. Their focus has been on neightbouring Fudomine. Seigaku have been stuck between a long waging war between Rokkaku and Saint Rudolph. Yamabuki and Gyoukurin have formed a treaty and have supposely put their fued behind them, but it was a cover in order to combine their powers in an attempt to battle neighbouring peaceful and cooperative worlds Jyousei and Midoriyama. Hyoutei are at the heart of the system and have been known to war with all nations, however their focus has always been on Seigaku. Terrans travel often to the system to assist with the development of democracy.
All residents of TP5 are required to keep a journal to log their activities for review by the TP5 security council. Anything under a 'private' tag will be considered visible only to the person who owns the journal. Notes for characters only are to be placed under a tag with the characters name in it. Anything without a private or character specific tag will be considered public and viewable by the system.
