Ranma Saotome is invincible.
If it's got martial arts in it, he'll win, eventually.
This is a good thing.... right?

What if things had gone a little differently, though?
One day, one different decision,
one event out of place,
changing....
cascading...

What if Ranma wasn't the hero, but the villain?

Another long wait in between updates... our apologies. New on the page is the Annotations and Notes, and also the infamous IMBS Spoof Scenes. Last but not least, you get two pieces of new art by the mysterious netter known only as Vilja. Sidestories and updates will continue to be posted, and when things slow down, we'll post links to our next projects. So don't cut us out of your bookmarks quite yet. ;) We've been mulling over ideas for an interactive novel/game, so if you happen to be an independent software house with a graphic artist and programmer, drop us a line. And, of course, we always love to hear from fanartists. Who sadly don't always love to hear from us. ;) Last updated 11/25/98

Yes, we know this is quite possibly the ugliest webcounter in creation. Hits listed are from 1/19/98
