The Earth in Power Rangers is similar to our own, but not identical. The timelines have diverged, and some pretty radical events have happened in-universe. Here’s the important things for you to know for this game:
Every season of Power Rangers is, for good or bad, canon. We’ve spun events to make them more coherent and interrelated, but they definitely happened. As a result, the last guaranteed point of commonality between our world and this world is in 1993. This isn’t to say that everything you think you know is a lie, but be careful what you take for granted after that point regarding real-world events. Also note that three seasons (S.P.D, Time Force, and RPM) have not yet happened, due to time lines or alternate continuity.
The world, on the whole, is a much more peaceful place. Crime rates are lower, and police and military forces, while larger than they used to be in the Rangerverse, are still much smaller than they are in our world. When really bad things happen, a non-Ranger response that can handle the situation is often a long time coming. Conversely, when really bad things aren’t happening, Rangers are typically expected to pick up any police slack and handle street crimes they encounter.
Aliens walk among us. While still a rare sight, there is a fairly sizable resident population on Earth. The planet is also a mildly popular tourist destination for many species. In any event, the alien presence is known and (generally) accepted.
This is a Power Ranger game using a heavily modified Princess: The Hopeful system. If you aren’t familiar with Princess, or with how the World of Darkness system works, don’t worry. We’ll explain all that shit here.
