Though it certainly is not
the beginning of all things Alt DBZ, the New Era marked a point of
significance to everything, from the very lives of our characters to
the player MUNs to the core rules of the room itself. Technically,
the New Era began when ssjobe, the man who brought Alt DBZ into
being as well as commanding some of the most significant characters
from its past, moved on to other things in life. Meanwhile, Cohost
Steven Matthew, also known as Vix or Vixtar, became the next room
host, promising change and a focus on the player with his every
With relation to the RP,
at the end of his era, ssjobe's characters and many of their
affiliates were sheer powerhouses, controlling unfathomable power
that only seemed to get higher with no sign of a limit. Fighting men
had become like gods, and the planets had become their playing

had become repetition.
Then, one fateful day, the
Black Star Dragonballs were gathered and used, and in their use, all
the spiritual power was sucked from the universe. People who could
destroy galaxies with a whim fell to the same level as the very same
common people they had stood over before. In a word, everyone had
become mortal, once again. To many proud fighters of all races and
creeds, life had started all over again. However, many knew and know
that power would rise again. History would repeat. Power begets
power, and those who had it would only want it again. The only
question was, how?
Yes, Alternate DBZ did not
begin, by far, on the date of the New Era. Much had happened before.
However, so much has changed in the world as we know it... so many
veterans had left, so many newcomers have arrived... that it is our
decision to weigh the world we live in by the events that have taken
place from that point. Some of the older veteran players who
remained may be able to tell you about events before that time, if
you still wish to know.
