Dragonball Alpha & Omega is a text based online playing RPG. The game uses message boards to post training, transactions, battle results, news, travelling, updating (etc) and not for trash talk or offensive language. A chat board is available for people to chill and just talk about anything they want (apart from anything offensive). Anyone who is found cheating will probably be kicked off the game or banned for a fixed period of time, or possibly even banned for life. You can only have 1 character at a time, anyone who is found with 2 will be dealt with (trust me myself or my staff can check!)
You will also be given a bonus of 300,000 points to add to any of the following stats, HP / PL / SPD / KI / DEF or ML (but not money), which you must also decide to divide between your stats and put in your joining post.
PL – Power Level, your characters strength which determines what moves you can learn / pull off and is also calculated into damage.
SPD – Speed, your characters agility and evasion. This stat is used to see whether your character goes first in a fight and if they can evade certain moves.
DEF – Defensee, used to lessen damage from blows and energy based attacks (both KI and ML)
KI – Kinetic Energy, an energy form stat that is used to learn/pull off certain attacks (that require KI energy). When KI is used in an attack (i.e. KI Blast, requires 50,000 KI to use) it is depleted from the current KI Value. So lets say the total KI of a character is 200,000, - 50,000 from using KI Blast = 150,000 which is the new current amount of KI).
ML – Mental Energy, this stat allows the user to learn/pull off specific moves that require ML. Like KI it is an energy form, and does deplete if used by an attack, similar to KI Energy.
Zeni ($) – Money / Cash, this is the currency used in DB Alpha & Omega. The more you have the more you can buy. Zeni is gained from fighting in battles (win and lose, but not draw), quests (some specific ones) and conquering planets. It can also be wished for from the DragonBalls.
Capsule Credits (CC) – Another form of currency. However, this special type of credit can only be spent in the Capsule Credits Shop.
Once you have finished the fight and someone is declared winner, loser or in some cases you both draw, then you must post the following on the Battle Results Board.
- Firstly in the subject box who you fought
You can post more than one fight at once. For example if you fought one person, then 2 minutes after fought another, instead of posting the first fight, getting your stats ready, then fighting again only to do your stats again, you can just fight both then post afterwards. The choice is up to you, but if you want that little bit more PL or SPD (etc) then you can fight, post and change stats, then fight again. Like on message boards please do not use offensive language in battles, you can talk trash just not offensively.
*** A Special Note on Fighting: You can only fight someone if they are in the same location as you (apart from tournaments, everyone can be on separate planets), unless you have an Battle Arena Re-Translocator, to find more info on this item, look at the Battle Items page***
Race Stat Gains
Moves and Move List
You can buy art points from the Battle Shop from 10, 25 or 50 points at one time.
In order to learn a move, you must first have all the stat requirements for the move (PL, KI, ML etc) and any other specifications, and you must have a free move slot. You then post of the Move Selection Board, your old move list, move slots used and art points used. Then what moves you are dropping / adding, how many slots / sk points they use, and then your new move list, move slots used and art points used.
*** A Special Note on Move Selection: Almost all races start off with a maximum of 20 move slots, if not it will indicate on the Race Page what they do start off with. ***
You cannot have more than one transformation on at one time. For example, if you turned SSJ, the bonus stats from the transformation will be added to your current stats. Then if you were to turn SSJ2 you would have to wait till the transformation runs out (if it does have a time limit). If it didn’t have a time limit, then just say you are transforming to SSJ2, but the bonus stats gained from SSJ will be taken away. You will then be left with your original stats, and the SSJ2 bonus stats will be added to your original, giving you your current stats.
Some moves / weapon abilities that can be used against you can prevent you from transforming for the first 5 or 10 turns, or ever in battle.
You add transformations to your move list the same way you would with race moves.
SNEAK ATTACKS -
**** Please be aware that under no circumstances can training items be used in special training (this also includes gravitrons), whether you request or not! If special training allows the use of training items in its description then and ONLY then can items be used. ****
When training you must post;
Gravity Guide & Gravitrons
See the Gravity Guide for more information.
- Your Current Zeni (after fighting, quests etc, before you made the post)
Shops will buy items back off you for 1/2 original price (if they can be sold back, they will say whether they cannot be sold back).
You can also make more than one transaction at one time, and as many times a day as you want. It is easier to do it in one post though.
*** A Special Note on Transactions: You cannot purchase / sell items when you are in flight, unless you have the ‘In-flight Shop Transporter’, I.S.T for short, otherwise you must be on a planet to make transactions. ***
If you are auctioning an ascended weapon or armour, only Capsule Credits can be redeemed and the person who is buying it will not transform into a Demi-God, God or DemonKing.
Ascended Armours / Weapons
When posting that you are Travelling it must include;
When you land on a planet, you cannot travel to another planet using a ship the same day. You can train, fight, hunt for dballs etc but not travel, you must give your ship 24hours to cool down the engines to prepare for long space travel.
Remember when you are travelling to a planet, you can change mid-flight your destination (as long as you are not using an upgrade on the ship which has auto-pilot that cannot be changed), just incase the planet you were due to arrive on was blown up!
If you die while in-flight (from fighting etc) then you go to outworld gate, but your ship stays in-flight via auto-pilot. When you are revived your ship might have even landed on the planet you were travelling too!
*** A Special Note on Travelling: When travelling to the Outworld Gate, no matter what ship you have, as soon as you post that you are travelling to the Outworld Gate, you are then instantly! ***
*** Hidden planets: When you travel to a planet that has not description you MUST use a searching item to discover who, or what exactly lies in wait for you there... until you use your searching item (time it takes depends on the power of the searching item used) you won't be able to see the planets description
If you instant t-port to or land on a planet that has been blown up (gotta be pretty stupid to do that … but anyway) you will die, and will stay dead for the remainder of days the planet has left till it is reborn (it is reborn 30 days after it is blown up).
The Outworld Gate has 0x gravity, and when you have died and trained for your allotted time (either 14 or 30 days) you can choose to start from your last known destination (ship, planet etc) or you can start from here instead. You can fight from this place (including using the Battle Arena Re-Translocator) and purchase items from this place (just not from Empire Shops, because you are not on the specific planet!).
Ways of being killed in DB:AO (for 14 days and 30 days) are as follows;
There are many different types of dead training you can do depending on the stats, record, quests completed and personality of your character (good or evil). To find out more, visit Dead Training.
Completing quests allows you to go onto better quests, or undergo stronger dead training. Some quests may even give your omnipotent items such as Ascended Armours or Weapons, or just a sh*t load of $_$ !!!
To find out more, visit the Quests 'sub-section' along the left hand side of the website.
You would post that you are Searching for a Hidden Item (Day ?/? … however many days it takes for your particular Scouter to find an item). You could search for days, weeks, or months without finding anything, so unless you are DEAD CERTAIN there is an item (clue given in description, or by a clue given from a Non-Playable Character) I wouldn’t search for more than 20 – 30 days.
Once you find the item, it is yours to keep. You don’t have to fight a Guardian like the Dragon Balls (unless it is stated otherwise in the planet’s description).
If you lose to the Dragonball Guardian, you MUST leave the planet within 24hrs of posting that you lost on the request board, and must not return for 14 days. After the 14 days you can re-challenge. If you fail to leave you will die for 14 days.
If a member of your team/clan fights a Dragonball Guardian and loses, but you then re-challenge you cannot do so until they leave the planet. The team/clan member has 24hrs to leave the planet, and they MUST leave the planet before you challenge. If two people who are not team members both post within 24hrs a challenge to a Dragonball Guardian they must first fight, the loser forfeiting their search and MUST leave the planet within 24hrs. The winner can challenge the Guardian straight away if they wish.
Under no circumstances can ANY form of training be done whilst hunting for the Dragonballs. This is a special quest, so on the day you post the challenge to the Dragonball Guardian you cannot train. If you beat the guardian and gain the right to hunt for the dragonballs using a scouter or searching item, then you CANNOT train until the day after you make your wishes. For example, it takes 3 days to fight the Dragonballs, on the 3rd day you make your wishes. You cannot train on this day, but you can the day after. If you do this your hunt for the dragonballs will be voided and you must start again from scratch – including fighting the guardian, the next day.
See the Dragonballs Quest Page for more information.
Rule on Immortality
Immortality means; you cannot die from an instant-kill type move in battle / you cannot die from a planet exploding, example, an obliterator type move used in battle / when you reach so many losses that you are supposed to die, you don't.
You can however be DEFEATED by these means, when your health reaches 0 in battle and you cannot be revived by any move / item then you lose the fight.
Planet Destroying [obliterator] Moves
Firstly, you must travel to the planet you wish to blow up and if it has a Planet Master (if it is not owned by an Empire it doesn’t have one) you must challenge them. If you win, you can blow up the planet and if you lose you must not return to the planet for 30 days.
There are four levels of [obliterator] moves;
When a planet dies (blown up) it will be gone for 30 days, and will be reborn after the 30th day.
If you want to get the stronger versions of obliterator moves you must be extremely strong. Some races do have these moves in their move list, but you cannot just access them immediately you must in some cases have your last transformation, undergo training or be a God / DemonKing (etc)
If you want to own a planet you must first request to the Planet Master or Champion of the planet you want (you must be on the planet you want to conquer) and you must fight him / her. If you win, you have the planet. Anyone can conquer planets, or claim yours for their own.
Also, because the planet is yours, people must request to you in order to go there. If you allow them, they can go. If they go without asking for your permission and land on the planet, you can kill them instantly (they will die for 14 days). Or if they happen to be on the planet and you conquer it, you can ask them (or force them!) to pay you rent to stay their, or if they decline and do not leave after 24hrs of you asking them to(through the request board) they die, instantly for 14 days.
If however you lose you must leave the planet and not return to challenge the owner/champion for a further 30 days!
Another major insentive into owning planets is that after 30 days of owning a planet you will start to get paid a wage from the inhabitants taxes! To find out more information, see the Planet Ownership Quest on the General Quests Page.
• New Vegeta [saiyan empire]
These planets cannot be conquered, unless a bounty has been put on the planet by another Race. If a bounty has been put on a planet, anyone from any race can conquer the planet and sell it to the asking Empire (they will post on the Request Board what planet(s) they want for their own and their payments, normally items and $$$).
You could however conquer the required planet, but then keep it for your own. If this were to happen the King of the Empire asking for the specified planet would probably put a bounty on your head, for a very high payment, but if you’re strong enough, it’s worth the risk … right?
Majin and Kai Training
To see the training and specifications available look at this page Majin and Kaioshin Abilities Page. This page gives an in-depth summary of the training, unlocked majin / kai moves and arts and other useful information you will need to know.
*** A Special Note on Majin / Kai Training: If you are a regular member, who has not yet obtained Godhood or DemonKing status, and you have undergone the special training you must have either Majin (if you are evil), or Kaioshin (if you are good) in front of your name permanently (until you become a Demi-God / God or DemonKing). ***
Fighting for Ownership of Dark Dragonballs
If a tournament is being held, I will post it on the Site News & Questions Board and create a Tournament Sign up Board. Not everyone can participate in certain tournaments remember, and I will also decide the match-ups (randomly).
There will also be prizes given out. Everyone will get a consolation prize for signing up and participating. Then prizes will be given out for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. The prizes will be specified on the Tournament Info Page when one is announced.
Teams, Clans and Partnerships
A Clan consists of a maximum of 3 teams combined (maximum is 15 members to a clan). Clans can challenge other clans for dominance over planets (teams cannot challenge teams or clans for dominance of planets). The members of the clans can be from the same or different race, but must all be either evil, or all good, not mixed.
A Partnership is formed between races, rather than teams. If a planet that is owned by Saiyans is saved / protected by a character from a Demon race for example, the Saiyan King (a NPC who is ruler of all saiyans, not actually a real character to fight) will post that he would like to make a partnership between the two races. If the Demon King (ruler of all demons) replies positively, the partnership is formed. This then allows Saiyans to shop from the Demon Shops and travel to some planets owned by the Demon Race (if stated otherwise), and visa versa. If this partnership ends, due to betrayal (lets say after the partnership was formed, a Saiyan were to destroy a Demon planet) they can no longer shop on or visit the planets!
NPC’s … Non-Playable Characters
Unless you are a member of staff who has been given one of these jobs, you would be wise not want to try to post as King Yemma 2 or something like that, and give yourself dead training, because a Site Master will find out and ban you for cheating! Staff members also do not post themselves dead training, or Planet Master fights (etc) they must wait for another member of staff who has the status to do so.
Things found in a weekly update;
After this, you must post the Total Stats Gained During the Week;
- Includes fight stats and $ / training stats / and any stat boosts (to be added up)
