    I once ran this RPG a couple years ago, right here on HJU, and figured to give it a second go around.

    In 2000, when the Grongi appeared to threaten mankind, a new hero rose to combat them, his name was Kuuga. And every time since then, when something new would threaten the world, a hero would rise to meet them head on. Ten in total. Sometimes they were known to the public, but often they weren't, called “Kamen Riders” they served as those who'd fight for justice and to keep the world safe. When the threat of the fangires were dealt with by Kamen Rider Kiva, a new threat appeared that required all ten Kamen Riders to appear, collectively calling themselves the “Magnificent Ten.” Lead by a powerful new Rider called Decade, the ten heroes engaged in a bitter war against the group,

    The threat was beaten and peace returned to the world and each of the ten went his own way. Now, six years later in 2015, mysterious attacks started, but each aimed at a member of the “Magnificent Ten.” Kuuga was the first attacked in New York City and vanished, only his Arcle remained behind, recovered by a friend of Kuuga's named Meilleur être. Concerned about what happened, Meilleur left New York, headed to Japan to warn Agito, his gut told him something was happening, and whatever it was..it was not good.

    By the time he reached Agito, he found the same, a battleground that resembled a war and he was nowhere to be found. Although he managed to alert the others, the attacks picked up in pace and brutality, by the time they ended, the “Magnificent Ten” were completely missing, and Kivat Bat the 3rd, wouldn't remember what happened in the attack, or who did it. Collecting what he could, Meilleur seeks to reform the “Magnificent Ten” and guide them into uncovering the source of the attacks behind his missing friends and if possible, find them.

    Unknown to him however is a shadowy group calling themselves Zeus, after the most powerful of the greek gods has formed a group comprised of the most powerful of all the Kamen Rider enemies. Few, if anybody on the planet knows about Zeus, who are they? Are they connected to the disappearance of the ten Riders?

    Magnificent Ten:
    1. Hikaru Akiyama (Kamen Rider ZX) - Kurou Daijuuji
    2. Takashi Aoki (Kamen Rider Joker) - Buster889
    3. Minato Tachibana (Kamen Rider Knight) - VenchiVenchi
    4. William Shepard (Kamen Rider Garren) - LawWind

    Now, for a bit of notes, and the sign up sheet. Characters will be added to the first post, as well as who the main bad guys are once they are revealed.

    Notes: The main focus of the storyline is gonna be in three parts: The Formation of a new Magnificent Ten and the Rise of Zeus, the Mystery of the vanished heroes and the final arc.

    The way I set it up is that everything to Decade had happened, so people if they so wish can have free reign to set up whatever ride they wish in whatever way they wish (being the origin of the riders in the shows since). However, I'll ask that nobody take Fourze, or anything related to Fourze. I haven't seen the series and would not wish to run monsters from a show unseen, also the same goes for Drive since it's airing.

    You can try to sign up with a movie rider, but they're on a case by case basis, and I'd greatly prefer Riders that are in the beginning of the show (IE: No mid-boss, or mid season riders/final boss riders)

    Lastly feel free to use Meilleur être if you have any type of "gear" or tech based rider. Blade, Ryuki, etc. You will start with just the base forms each rider would have at the beginning of the show, I will ask that some originality be used in coming up with characters (IE: Characters that are not clones of the TV series characters).

    Character Name: Takashi Aoki

    Age: 27

    Birth Place: Kyoto, Japan

    Rider: Joker

    Height: 6'0

    Weight: 216 lbs

    Theme Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M30QDvHSUIM/"W-B-X ~W-Boiled Extreme~"

    Character Appearance: Takashi

    Other Information:
    - Fluent in both Japanese and English
    - Mechanically skilled, often repaired and rebuilt his own motorcycles.

    Bio:

    Takashi Aoki is the youngest of three siblings in the Aoki family. Physically bigger than most kids his age, Takashi was always gift athletically from an early age. A young track and baseball star, it seemed certain he would one day play professional baseball. That is until he went to his first wrestling event on his 8th birthday, and from that day on, Takashi knew he would one day be a professional wrestler. Putting his mind, and body to work, Takashi was a good, albeit not great student until he graduated.

    After his 18th birthday, Takashi was lucky enough to join the dojo of one of Japan's biggest professional wrestling companies. Although it was the hardest thing Takashi had ever done, it payed off. By 22 he made his professional debut to a few hundred fans, and from there he began to work as hard as he could. Three years later, Takashi has risen like a comet, to become one of the brightest young stars of professional wrestling in Japan. Handsome, with flowing hair, and a well defined look, it made him popular with the fans, however everything changed. Shortly after his birthday, Takashi vanished mysteriously after the biggest match of his career.

    There have been few rumors in the year since he vanished, with only a strange bouquet of flowers on the ground in front of his idling motorcycle. What happened to Takashi? Where has he gone?

    Character Name: Hikaru Akiyama

    Age: Indeterminate, appears mid-20s

    Rider: ZX

    Height: 6'4"

    Weight: 207lbs

    Theme Song: Dragon Road!

    Character Appearance: Hikaru ZX

    Other Information:
    - Fluent in multiple languages.
    - Skilled in police proccedures and covert operative work.

    Bio:
    The man known as Hikaru Akiyama does not exist, for that name - like many others he has used - is a pseudonym to cover his true identity. He is a Rider from an older era, a man who's war is long over, 31 years ago to be precise. Turned into a cyborg against his will, he inevitably turned against his creators and destroyed them - a thing that seems almost inevitable, for the unwilling do not make ideal weapons. After the destruction of the organization responsible for stripping him of his humanity, he parted ways from those that had become his allies - the other Riders - and moved on, vanishing into the world at large.

    He has wandered the world ever since, straying far from his native Japan, but has largely kept out of the conflicts that have sprung up in the decades since - there have been new heroes to deal with them. Instead, he has taken the time to regain the humanity that he had lost - at least mentally, for his body is almost entirely mechanical. Rather than fight evil in a grand crusade against madmen, monsters, and dictators, he has chosen to do good for humanity in dozens of smaller ways, before moving on to new places.

    Most notably since, he has served as an agent for INTERPOL, with only his handler aware of his nature. When the Magnificent Ten began to vanish, the authorities began to worry - for the Riders were often their only defense against threats normal humans could not hope to accomplish. As the situation grew more dire, his superior convinced his old friend to look into the matter, not as Hikaru Akiyama - but as the Kamen Rider in red and silver, whom most of the world has forgotten. It may actually work in his favor, for while the world may have passed him by, his cyborg body is as strong as ever - and his fighting spirit has at last begun to reawaken.

    Character Name: Minato Tachibana

    Age: 28

    Rider: Knight
    Height: 5,6

    Weight: 158 lbs

    Theme Song:[video=youtube;527hdKHqL2M]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=527hdKHqL2M[/video]

    Character Appearance: Minato Tachibana
    Other Information: He is an excellent swimmer due to living on an Island.

    Bio: As a child Minato was sickly, which caused his parents to shelter him. When he was thirteen his family moved to Minami-Tori-shima hoping the ocean air would help him. While they were right he missed his friends in the city and for a long time spent all his free time indoors, slowing down his recovery.

    Two years later Minato had accepted that he probably wouldn't see Yokohama again any time soon and had began making the best of his new life. This was also the year he discovered that he loved to motocross, though his parents ,still protective of him, restricted him to 125 cc.

    When he was eighteen he left home and went back to the city he lived in as a child, feeling his parents would never be able to fully stop sheltering him. He did keep in contact though.

    I had figured you might want to do that, in regards to having Darkwing as the contract monster. Soon as we get another few people to sign up, I'll put up the RPG thread and open it with a post.

    That is nice to hear but is it possible for Garren to use king form? If so how will Meilleur être help the Characters?

    The reason why I ask is beacause that Garren never had the chance to use king form in the show. As for the other question is that I to know a bit more info such as how much can he help and in what way.

    There's no reason why William shouldn't be able to use King form when it gets time for that certainly. However, if you have your own idea of how to become Garren and want to do it without Meilleur's help, go for it. Otherwise it'll be explained in the opening post and the reason given to how he'll find the right people, but the short answer is there will be an algorithm. Plugged online and running that'll be used to guide him to the people, and then an offer would be given. A generic enough opening sure, but if somebody wanted (say for example) say the algorithm was used to find people to restart BOARD and shape it to something completely different, that's fine too.

    I thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I will be fine with either of the two algorithm.

    Ryuji broke down and cried. cried that he was powerless to do anything and that he had beetles as well, all he needed was their strength. The Dark Kabuto Zector sensed his dark emotions and went to him. Ryuji saw the Zector and immdiately know what it wants

    Doing the same pose as Souji, while reaching out for the Dark Kabuto Zector, he said " My Grandmother Always Says "If I wish for it, fate will always be my ally." and fate has given me the power to save my brother. Dark Kabuto, lets do this HENSHIN!"
