UNION OF BLOOD AND IRON

Spiritual successor to Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

A few decades ago the United States was in the biggest downfall seen since the Roman Empire, today its on a comeback and set on the greatest conquest in centuries.

Current Date: September 29th, 1925

Starting Location: Rock Springs, Wyoming, Idaho Territory

OP: Imperial Idaho
Co-op(s): New Grestin

A mere ten years ago the map of North America resembled that of Europe, divided and at each others throats. A failed Manifest Destiny and the aftermath of the wars and revolts that came of it. The start of the First World War after a Nordic bombing of a diplomatic meeting between the Frontier Pact led them to war against the Continental Concord, and a renewed civil war between the North and the South began. The United States began to be the only fighting force for the Concord, as the Idaho Territory, Oregon, and the Nordic Republic began running out of men and supplies to throw at their enemies. Immense pressure was placed on the other Concord members by the United States, determined to restore the Unions place among the sun by crushing the Confederacy and the Frontier Pact. The Nordic Republic collapsed after internal divisions and economy crushing disasters, it descended into Civil War.

The Unions armies marched on its former ally, and absorbed the Republic under the excuse of restoring order to the region. The Confederacy was losing the war, though still determinate for Dixie to triumph in the end of the war, and the other Frontier Pact members grew sick of the war, already winning against Oregon and fighting a Guerilla war in the Rocky Mountains against Idaho and Colorado. The Texans abandoned the Confederacy, and voted them out of the Pact with the intention of setting their own peace without the baggage of the Confederacy. The Continental Concord began a peace without the Union, leading extremist politicians in Philadelphia to justify war against their former allies, and under a false flag operation annexed parts of New England.

The Confederacy was crushed in victory after victory, and the Union marched west, into Lakotah, Idaho, and the Cherokee. Even after the delayed end of the war in Europe the United States continued to march, and absorbed its client state of Kansas City. Union troops entered Texan land for the first time in almost a century. The Union is pushed on the prospect of reclamation and the Hyper Patriotism that followed the renewed Civil War, as its technological advantage over the west and its titanic industry drive it to victory.

Welcome to Union of Blood and Iron! An RP with the intention of telling the ta!e of an America that could've been our own. With a United States hellbent on ruling from sea to sea with a renewed Manifest Destiny, the future of the west seems bleak. However resistance is immense in the Great Plains and the South, and armies continue to march against those of the Union. A goal of the RP is to explore the culture and history of this world and preserve the nations who inhabit it. You as your character will travel across the land and organize its population to fight, coordinate with the rebellions and armies against the that of the Union, and make sure the western powers survive for years to come. The world is on the edge of its seat waiting to see what happens in North America, with any luck, you will be a deciding factor in the fate of the continent.

These are in anyway listed in levels of importance simply listed. If uou are asked to leave, you will be required to leave if you don't the mods being involved.
  • 1. No Godmodding/Meta-Gaming: This can be defined as playing your character without limitations or having your character know things they couldn't possibly know.
  • 2. Don't be a dick in the OOC: You can have your character be an aggressive and smarter version of a certain political candidate in the IC. But the moment you act like a dick in the OOC thread you'll get a warning.
  • 3. No One Liners: Three full lines of text/a paragraph per each IC post, anything less is frowned upon and is generally laziness and will not be accepted. Anything greater is acceptable and is smiled upon.
  • 4. No 'Dick measuring' contests: The moment two of you start arguing over which character is better, and it doesn't contribute to goings on in the IC. You'll both get a warning.
  • 5. For the love of god keep it PG-13: This is a general site rule, and while PG-13 is a blurred line nowadays, the rules of thumb are: nothing sexually explicit, and nothing overly violent. This is a place to role play as old timey adventurers, not write out deviant fantasies.(edited)
  • 6. No multicolor or odd dialogue: No colored text, it's a legitimate health risk to those with photosensitive epilepsy and you will be reprimanded for doing so (This may actually be punished harsher than godmoding depending on the circumstance). And no italicized/bolded/underlined paragraphs, reserve them for actual use instead of using them for everything.
  • 7. If you have a problem with a player, take it to TG. If that does not work, bring it to the OP or a CoOP's attention. Do not turn the OOC thread into chaos.
  • 8. You have a 72 hour grace period to post if you're holding someone back, after that your character will be forced to move on by the OP or Co-Op. Failure to return will result in character death.
  • 9. Don't just write for yourself, other want to get involved as well. I realize it's human nature, but try to involve other people's ideas, themes, and characters. A major part in RPing is having other people, don't turn them away or cast a blind eye.
  • 10. Have fun!

NAME: Khaira Radi
PROFESSION: Cartographer
NATIONALITY: Mesopotamian
GENDER: Female

AGE & DATE OF BIRTH: 26 (3rd March, 1899)
EDUCATION & OCCUPATIONAL HISTORY:
Education
  • Home Teachings (1902-1913)
  • Basic Field Training (1916-1918)
  • Self Taught (1918-1922)
Occupation
  • None (1899-1915)
  • Soldier for the British Empire (1916-1919)
  • Cartographer (1919-1925)

HOMETOWN: Mosul, British Mesopotamia

STARTING GEAR:
  • Lee-Enfield SMLE No. 1 MK III
  • Colt M1911A1
  • Jambiya
  • Compass
  • Several Maps of the US
  • Canteen
  • Shemagh
SKILLS AND TRADECRAFT:
  • Map Reading
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Compass Reading
  • Marskmanship
  • Knife fighting
  • Swimming
  • Guerrilla Warfare
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Arabic ethnicity, light set frame, 5'6 (167 cm) 173 lbs (78 kg). Laceration scar under left breast, hair usually in pony tail or bun.
BIOGRAPHY AND BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Middle child to a large Islamic family, Khaira did not have all the attention in the world. And as tragic as it was, she eventually became one of only four out of fifteen children in her family to survive their formative years. As the sole daughter in her family, she, her mother, and her grandmothers grew very close over the years, being the only people to whom she was taught by. She learned basic life skills from her mother in the rather sizable town of Mosul, and learned of much more from her grandmothers, who's life experience trumped hers by many years.

Khaira would never of considered herself violent. But when the Ottomans finally kicked it into gear in 1914, things started going downhill. With a greater Ottoman presence near the Russian and British influenced areas of their Empire, they started becoming more harsh, especially in their treatment of the Kurds. All three of her brothers were killed, and her father was left crippled. So she did what she had to to avenge her family. In 1916 rumors of one T. E. Lawrence organizing raids on Ottoman supplies and military targets reached Mosul, and Khaira learned of what it was she could do.

And she ran. From Northern Iraq to damn near Mecca, Khaira traveled until she met up with those wishing to do the Ottomans harm. It was here she met the renowned Lawrence of Arabia, the supposed father of asymmetric warfare. Not one to turn down help of any kind, they accepted her into their ranks, gave her gear, and set her up for the next two years with others in sabotaging railways, trainyards, vehicle depots and water supplies all to end the Ottoman war machine. All at the age of 17.

After the war ended, she didn't dispose of the skills she'd gained. Instead she became a cartographer, making maps of the region she lived in for so long, and selling them to the French, English, and Saudi governments. However she soon realized that such actions weren't entirely smiled upon in the Levant, especially since the colonial powers reneged on their agreement for an independent region. So in 1921 she fled to Columbia, and then crossed south into the Idaho Territory. Becoming both a hunter and cartographer.

Over the next few years she became more involved with the people of the territory, and eventually also joined in with concerns of the Union. Though unlike her fellows she had some sympathy for the Union. A Unified collection of nations was likely for the best, and like her own home would make a greater whole. Though she felt as if they were going about it in the wrong way. Her aims are to help the Union annex the rest of the US peacefully if possible.

NAME: : Nicolás Blackwood
PROFESSION: Gunsmith
NATIONALITY: Santa Fe
GENDER: Male

AGE & DATE OF BIRTH: 28, Feb 4, 1897.
EDUCATION & OCCUPATIONAL HISTORY: Normal Education, Gunsmith in Santa Fe.
HOMETOWN: Santa Fe, Santa Fe

STARTING GEAR: 200 hundred dollars, pocket watch, M1917 Enfield with a scope, Colt M1911A1, canteen, family heirloom.
SKILLS AND TRADECRAFT: Make and repair weapons, tool repair, wielding, general smiting.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Half-White, Half-Mexican, 5'9, 140 lbs. Scar on the palm of his right hand.
BIOGRAPHY AND BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Nicolás was born in the city-state of Santa Fe to a family of four. Nicolás's father was merchant that was from Oregon and moved to Santa Fe for the profitable trade there. Nicolás had a good upbringing but would grow distance from his father and the two would rarely talk to each other due to a incident. Which both of them refuse to talk about and Nicolás has a distaste for alcohol afterwards.

Nicolás despite his nature of not wanting to pick a fight, he is a talented gunsmith. He had wanted to make guns after a hunting trip that his father took him on and became fascinated with them. He would learn the trade from a local gunsmith and at twenty entered into business making guns for either hunting or self defense. He would also make some guns for himself and prefers his self-made Remington Model 8 when he travels. His stance on the war is rather neutral but, wants his home to be independent.

NAME: Eleanor Louise Paulson
PROFESSION: Nurse / Former Combat Medic
NATIONALITY: British
GENDER: Female

AGE & DATE OF BIRTH: 29 | February 17th, 1896

EDUCATION & OCCUPATIONAL HISTORY:

EDUCATION:
  • General Education (1901 - 1913)
  • Military Training (1913 - 1916)
  • Secondary Education (1920 - 1924)

OCCUPATIONAL:
  • Medical Assistant (British Expeditionary Force) (1913 - 1920)
  • Practicing Nurse (1924+)

HOMETOWN: Manchester, England

STARTING GEAR:
  • Mauser C96
  • Medical Supplies
  • Gas Mask
  • Binoculars
  • Standard Survival Kit (Canned Food, Canteen, etc.)

SKILLS AND TRADECRAFT:
  • Surgical Experience
  • General Advanced Medical Knowledge
  • Some Combat Experience
  • High Intelligence
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION:
  • French-British Descent, 5'2 (1.64 Meters), 180 lbs (81.6 kilograms), Gunshot wound in left shoulder, Chronic respiratory illness due to extended Chlorine Gas Exposure.
BIOGRAPHY AND BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
    Born to Sarah Deckard and Erik Olivier in Manchester, England just before the dawn of the 20th century, Eleanor was a poor student in school. With less than stellar grades and a complete indifference to her education, she seemed to be on the fast track to a depressing existence as a factory worker or homemaker. That would be the end of her story, if not for the outburst of war in Central Europe. In the cold month of August, 1914, Eleanor enlisted into the BEF as a Medical Assistant. It was only once the true nature of the war became apparent that she regretted the decision. The conflict was unspeakably brutal, particularly on the Western Front of France where she and her compatriots were often deployed. The Battle of the Frontiers alone was enough nightmares for a lifetime. Throughout the Great War, Eleanor became hardened to the horrors of everyday conflict. Even as the Eastern Front fell beneath German bootheels, the French and British fought on. Even as the old guard Russian government fell to Bolshevism and German Zeppelins rained bombs across French cities, they fought on. War became everything they knew. Eleanor watched as France simply became depopulated, bled white by increasingly draconian conscription laws. She saw as the German soldiers that attacked became younger and younger; children flushed by their officers into the lines of machine-gun fire.

    When the doctor in charge of her team was killed by an artillery shell at Ypres, Eleanor took on the duties as the head of her medical team. Despite spirited resistance and even helping to man a machine gun nest, the Germans overwhelmed their position and the Entente forces retreated, abandoning a wounded Eleanor behind enemy lines.

    Expecting to be murdered and violated by the Huns that had, for so long, put half-dead men on her operating table, Eleanor was shocked by the treatment she received. Whether it was the fact that she was a woman or a medic, she was unsure, but the Germans afforded her excellent care until the end of the War. Without the fresh blood of American troops in the conflict, the Great War would battle on until January of 1920. Lacking the manpower and the economic capital to carry on, the Entente and the Central Powers reached a white peace. Eleanor was released, where she pursued a career in Nursing in London. England was in shambles, much like the rest of Europe. Poverty was everywhere, and though she was never short of work caring for the injured veterans, she led a depressing, cruel existence. Eventually, even surviving on what meager supplies she could scrape together took it's toll, and Eleanor took a path that many Europeans took after the war. In early 1925, Eleanor immigrated to the Union, leaving behind a failed marriage, and would soon find herself wrapped up once more in the tides of conflict. This time, however, she was ready.

The local townspeople would not talk to her because of she was a female hunter and it was hard for her to sell pelts without her father.

She would grow tired of this and after thinking about it. She decided to move to another town and hunt on her own. Her family was accepting of this and gave her some money to move to Rock Springs.
