1. When is the plot set in the series timelines?
When the plot originally started, this was how it fit in with the three series:Angel
- between Carpe Noctem
and FredlessBuffy the Vampire Slayer
- post BargainingSailor Moon
- Sailor Stars
, episode 195
As the plot evolved and skipped one year into the future, we have:Angel
- sometime between season 4 and season 5Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- early season 8Sailor Moon
- post Sailor Stars, pre Crystal Tokyo era2. Which facts from Angel Season 3 and 4 have taken place?
After Angel left Los Angeles for Sunnydale, the plot distanced itself from the series. Darla didn't return to Los Angeles in a pregnant state, Holtz did not destroy the Caritas, Connor was not born and stolen, Wesley did not become a dark outcast, Cordelia did not ascend and did not get possessed by Jasmine - with all the consequences deriving from it. 3. So where exactly do the Angel-verse characters stand?
The gang is still headquartered at the Hyperion Hotel, with Wesley in charge. The gang members are Angel, Wesley, Fred, Gunn, Cordelia, Doyle and Lorne. Wesley and Fred are together, while Gunn is with Makoto and Angel is in a long-distance relationship with Yaten (disapproved of by Gunn and Wesley). Wolfram and Hart are still trying to make their lives miserable but they have not made them an offer to work for them yet.4. What do you mean Doyle? Didn't he die in Season 1?
In the first part of our plot, Doyle has been revived by the Powers That Be, with a vision of how Angel lost his soul. He has helped the gang and remained by their side.5. What about the Scoobies? Is this going to be Season 8?
No, not in the strictest sense of the word. There has been no empowerment spell, so the potential Slayers are still potentials and nothing more than that.
The gang relocated in Los Angeles. Buffy, Dawn, Tara and Willow are sharing a house, while Xander is living together with Violet. Giles has returned to England and Faith's whereabouts are unclear.
In order to clarify Tara's status: she had been killed by Angelus for trying to re-ensoul him and she is now alive because someone wished for a miracle. More specifically, Xander fought bravely at the Hellmouth but in a moment of carelessness, he got wounded, losing an eye. When the battle ended, a disembodied voice which presented itself as the Powers That Be offered him the chance to make one wish. Instead of wishing for his eye back, Xander wished Tara to return to life. It's a secret he carries even now.6. What happened to Spike?
To make it clear from the beginning, Spike was not burned up by the amulet inside the Hellmouth. Wofram and Hart never gave the amulet to Angel, so it is impossible for Spike to have had it. We assume that the last that was seen of Spike, he left Sunnydale in order to earn back his soul, so that he could be a better man.7. I want to take a character but I don't see it on the cast list. Are they unavailable?
Some minor characters are available even if they are not on the list (Luna, Artemis, Naru, Anne, other potentials, etc). However, some are really not available for the moment (Connor and Chibiusa). In their case, it is best to discuss with an admin if you are interested in playing them. 8. If the Senshi have lost their powers, can I make new ones to replace them?
No, new senshi are not allowed (that includes Sailor Earth and Sailor Sun). However, there is a chance that the Asteroid Senshi become available at some point. An announcement in this respect will be made.9. The site history mentions senshi dying in the Hellmouth battle. Who died?
The decision will be left to the players.10. Where can I find a summary of everything that happened on the site up to this moment, so that I know what my character did?
You may find a Timeline of events
which has a brief summary of all the threads that were played out so far. Additionally, you may also read a brief summary
of the Hellmouth battle and its denouement. 11. I am taking a character someone played before and I am not happy with some things the previous player did. Can I ignore them?
Please talk to an admin. Decisions as such will be taken on a case to case basis.12. It is said that the senshi have lost their powers. What exactly does this imply?
The most obvious implication is that the senshi have lost the ability to henshin. The Talismans of the Outer Senshi would have disappeared. However, any senshi that had some sort of power even before their awakening would preserve it (e.g. Mamoru would still have moderate healing abilities, Rei would still have divinations, Yaten would be moderately empathic, etc)
