La Revolución Gloriosa(OOC, Open)

Postby Australian Antarctica » Mon Sep 07, 2015 6:16 pm

La Revolución Gloriosa

Image

You wake to the sound of shooting outside. Nothing major. Crime is fairly common here in Enosta. Then you here a small explosion, followed by another, then another. Possibly grenades? That's unusual. Petty criminals never go that extreme...
Suddenly a loud explosion shakes your hotel room. The lights flicker and pieces of plaster rain from the ceiling. Unsteadily you move to the window, ducking as a burst of automatic fire peppers the wall just bellow you.
As you cautiously look up, you see a large tank rolling down the road, flanked by soldiers. From the back of the vehicle flies the National Flag of Enosta. The soldiers aim their rifles at the buildings around them, looking for something. About thirty meters behind them is a small crater, which you think is probably the result from the explosion you heard earlier.
Suddenly you see a trail of smoke materialize from one of the buildings down the road, slamming into the tank and causing a massive fireball. The closest men are incinerated, while those farther away are blown to pieces or at best, thrown to the ground covered in shrapnel.
Suddenly the Resort''s PA system crackles to life "All Guests and Employees report to the main lobby immediately. This is not a drill!"





Welcome to Enosta! A small island located due east of Brazil, unknown to most people, but one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. But hidden beneath the pure natural beauty hides a dark past, filled with revolutions, shadowy deals, and a dictatorial regime, in power since the 70s. Don't let the word 'dictatorship' color your views of our nation, for our people remain largely unoppressed, and enjoy some of the third-world's highest amounts of civil rights. Not all people are so grateful though. For the past 40 years a Communist Terrorist Group known as the 'Enostan Liberation Army' has been harassing the nation since our current government came to power in 1976. Recently they've become more bold, attacking checkpoints and bombing government buildings. All foreign born citizens are advised to report to their Embassy in the event of a coup. We cannot guarentee safe travel across the country in such and event. For the safest travel please locate an Enostan Security Convoy. Thank you for choosing to vacation in our beautiful nation, and enjoy your stay.




As you can tell already, this RP takes place on the fictional island of Enosta located in the southern Atlantic ocean, east of Brazil. More information about the island, including a map, will be found further down. Here I'll explain what this RP is about. Basically, you are a group of tourists who were vacationing at a fancy resort when the Enostan Liberation Army(Communist Terrorist Group :p ) attempts a revolution. Within hours, the entire island is locked in a pitched battle. You and your group must escape to the American Embassy located in the capital across the island. Along the way you will run into a lot of trouble. You may not survive. And even if you do, you will be forever changed. You may start a carefree tourist, but you will end a changed person.




The Republic of Enosta

History: Enosta was claimed by Spain in the 1600s, although remained uninhabited until the mid-1700s when a group of Spanish sailors grounded their ship during a freak storm. They waited weeks for rescue, but none came. During this time they established a small village on the northwestern coast using the wreckage of the ship for building material. They named the new settlement San Ricardo after the captain of the ship Ricardo Martinez. Over the next 100 years the city grew, then more settlements popped up, and soon it declared itself an independent republic in 1857. Though, even after it declared itself independent, it was largely ignored by the international community. The only countries who acknowledged it's existence was the UK, Brazil, and the US, and that was only due to the fact Enosta traded tobacco and coco beans with the west. During both World Wars Enosta stayed neutral, and remained off the radar. In 1976 an American-backed rebel group seized control of the country, claiming the Liberal Party that had been in control for most of the nation's history, 'Communist'. This led to a new man by the name of Caesar Fernandez taking control. He was highly militaristic, conservative, and isolationist. He cut off all trade with the outside world, destroying the economy and forcing 68% of the population into poverty, while at the same time boosting Military and Police numbers and cracking down on all resistance. The next 20 years were called 'The Dark Time'. The nation was put under martial law and a complete media blackout was enforced. Cartels began setting up shop in the southern half of the island, giving the poorest jobs and the richest more money and power. Then, in '96, Caesar died when a car bomb exploded outside his mansion. No group claimed responsibility, but it is highly suspected the Enostan Liberation Army is responsible. After Caesar was killed, his son, Marcos, quickly wormed his way into power, managing to keep the nation from plunging into anarchy. He was much more moderate, and the last twenty years has seen Enosta improve relations with the world, allowing trade and travel between it and the US, EU, and even China. He also cracked down on the cartels that had become firmly lodged in the south, in a series of battles called 'The Cartel Wars'. 'The Cartel Wars' last to this day, with both Cartel and Government bodies continuing to grow by the day, and no end in sight. But with the military and police's attention diverted elsewhere, the Enostan Liberation Army gained momentum. They quickly gained more members and began stepping up their attacks. Evolving from small time protests to full on riots to bombings of government buildings.

Applications


Applications are simple, and need not be explained for an entire paragraph. Basically I will only accept one, maybe two, applications for ex-soldiers, police officers, etc. Keep it logical. You are an American staying at a fancy resort, so you wouldn't be a bum living on a street or a marine sniper freshly discharged. You'd most likely be a rich guy or gal with too much money to burn and not enough time to burn it. Or at least an average middle-class person on the vacation of a lifetime.

Nation Name: GCCS, James Usari
Name: Mr. Adam van Lekenstraten
Birthplace: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Ethnicity: Caucasian, Dutch
Age: 34
Pic/Description: http://www.diplomatmagazine.nl/wp-conte ... 67x420.jpg

Occupation: UN diplomat
Personality: An open-minded, social man, who likes to converse when he is comfortable. Has the attributes of a good salesman, and a healthy mind. He’s not that physically fit, however, and can be a bit too trusting at times. He’s also not that brave in the face of violence, although he could be called brave in a political context.
Skills: Master’s degree in International Law, Bachelor in law, a pretty good cook with potatoes, and he knows his way around a hockey field.
Likes: Good food, international law, friendly people, cats, peaceful existence
Dislikes: Noise, ruckus, bollocks, bad food, having guns pointed in his general direction
Fears: Death, having his work be in vain, not being able to help

Bio: All we need to know for now is that Adam was the leader of a small UN mission of development to the island nation. While the other members of the group are on leave, he decided to stay on the island to see what he could accomplish in his spare time, to make sure the work he’d done was not undone. While his colleagues were away, though, revolution happened. Shit. Now, Adam is stuck on the island. His only means of escape is the American embassy, the only UN nation maintaining a diplomatic presence on the island. Preferably before the rebels find him.
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

Also, in the app you said you wanted characters to be "preferably self-sufficient," but I really want to play some hysterical liability of a trust fund baby. Is that okay? Did you just mean self-sufficient like old enough to feed themselves, or did you want the characters to not be a burden for others?

Well, UN diplomats really aren't that big of a deal. Certainly not when they are part of a small operation somewhere. He wouldn't be a big name, or something famous, just someone sent by the UN for some basic development programs. He would be a normal person, just one who happened to be on leave here.

Well, UN diplomats really aren't that big of a deal. Certainly not when they are part of a small operation somewhere. He wouldn't be a big name, or something famous, just someone sent by the UN for some basic development programs. He would be a normal person, just one who happened to be on leave here.

Still no

Bio:

Born in Tacoma Washington, William was always smart. He got straight A's in school, and was a prestigious trumpet player. Although he was picked on, and his confidence was low when he started his freshman year, he found sanctuary in the school's Junio Recruit Oficer Training Corps. The other kids there were nice, and he soon ranked up. He was never really athletic, but the program helped him get in shape. He took the class two semesters a year, and when he was a senior, he was battalion commander.

When he graduated high school, he went to Washington State University, and paid tuition on mostly scholarships and loans. He majored in accounting, and continued into ROTC. He made new friends, and was now someone who you wouldn't want to pick on. He showed exemplary service in the program, and rose trough the ranks just like in high school. He usually did multiple activity teams, but he mostly favored the academic team. Although he did try rifle team one semester, he discovered his 90 year old grandma could shoot better then him.

When he graduated, he went straight into the Army. Thanks to his commitment to ROTC, he started out an an officer. He soon ended up in the human resources department, and took up a life of pencil pushing and number crunching. After a few years, he reached the rank of Captain, and decided he didn't want to go any further so he could avoid the, as he put it, "The American liberal hippie media political bullshit." He took a leave of absence and decided to stay at Estonia instead of Aruba, because it was significantly cheaper.

RP Examples: If you don't know me, I will literally cry.

Making bombs is a no-no, the rest seems fine. Captain at 26 may be a little low though.
