[TWI-Only] [OOC] The Unraveling

The Unraveling

Image

IC | OOC | Dispatch


IC Intro
Through the eyes of the young of this world, we see life getting more just as a result of this incident. Perspectives are everything in a world that is constantly changing and it is up to governments, individuals and business to make the most of the situation that is presented to them. A hack into the Keveraite banking system points to Garland Clegget Kruse, an international law firm. Additionally the hack subsequently turns into a leak, with many groups becoming implicated due to this scenario. Governments are not immune in an international world where communication is instant and simple. Despite the efforts of national governments to downplay and mitigate the scenario, the Unraveling becomes exactly what it could be: a strong wake up call to the world to not be complacent.

The world through the lens of the next generation is also viewed here. Through Chris, Arrisek and Sarah we are shown the true human condition of people in the Isles. The next generation is struggling, but not downhearted. The Unraveling brings the emotions of the rising generation to a boil, and there's no certainty to how it should be managed. Likewise, we receive an insight into the current generation - especially the ruling elite of the Isles... politicians, businessmen, wealthy individuals. It is truly a conflict between suited individuals and the next generation. The question now is who is going to come to the table to compromise first?


OOC Coordination
So, essentially, this is the Panama Papers all over again, but in TWI. Additionally, it will also uncover some incredibly illegal labour exploitation in Keverai by some large corporations. So, where can you fit in?

1. I need some more news agencies to bribe encourage Revire to go back into the Keverai's financial system
FNN from Ostehaar, CBC from Covonant and Arendai from Ostehaar

2. I need some people to do some extremely localised, covert operations in Keverai to uncover the sweatshops
Ostehaar

3. I need some corporations to be implicated, politicians and rich people are also welcome.
Perhaps your news organisation could be involved in this AM?

If you've got any ideas for the storyline, please, post below. If you're interested do that too... tagging is welcome, but this RP is for The Western Isles only. Also, I cannot give a start date for this yet since I've barely even done planning on the Ahnslen part.



The Roleplay


A guide to the general events of the RP

Part One: Manipulate
  • Following the loss of his Dad’s job due to a shrinking mining sector in Ainslie and the death of his sister (in The High Life RP), Chris Revire has become more introspective than he was before, and a worrier of the future. Media executives turn up to his house to ask for him to reflect on his experiences (The High Life RP) but instead plan to offer him a deal which ensures his safety and financial security for him and his family if he helps to hack into a Keveraite bank.
  • Employees Arendai, CBC and First News Network from Ainslie, Covonant and Ostehaar make the journey to Highland Ridge. One person takes the RP post, hint hint your news company will be implicated to some degree in all this.
  • This is where major characters - Business Executives, Keveran workers and news writers get introduced. This can also be a time where Ostehaar plants units under the false pretense of protecting Keverai. They’re actually investigating the Keveran manufacturing industry.
  • Ze spies can be introduced here for this RP and beyond. They’ll be introduced over time so by Part Three starts the spies will be in place.


Part Two: Awaken

  • Small leak to CBC of records; reveals mesderian law firm involvement
  • Arendai and FNN release; gaelitic law firm involvement revealed
  • Arendai explains why they couldn’t before - Ainslie censored it.
  • FNN releases CSR abuses (ie sweatshops) run by large corporations just as Keverai denies everything
  • Keverai increases military and police presence as protests begin, with CC Renaut blaming it on the Argus Conservatives

Part Three: Untethering
  • President Justuva Susanto implicated
  • Ainslie announces audit into large Ahnslen companies
  • GCK suspended from international cases with an Ahnslen origin


Part Four: Uprising
  • Samuderan protests begin
  • Renaut faces vote of no confidence
  • Random deaths start, (OOC: thanks to foreign spies)


OOC: Where political leaders (if any) get challenged - resign, kicked out or remain.

Interested in further suggestions, ideas etc. This is by no means the final product but rather an outline to run off - I'm happy to take this in many different directions. I want this RP to be somewhat flexible compared to THL

This RP is for members of The Western Isles only.

Queste, the anti-capitalist haven that it is, would likely heavily support Revire financially and their government-owned media would spread it within their own nation like wildfire. Any further ideas on things I could do to participate in this?

Due to its involvement in San Montagna, serving as a middleman for sanctioned items, and the general apathy of the provinces regarding regulation and trade, elements of the Ilse would be very opposed to the existence of such a man, maybe. The King would condemn his actions certainly.

Given that there's an already high Aprosian population - this is a very real possibility.

Maybe Revire can also find maybe from serf exploitation in the Ilse (I will name a few characters when I think of them)? Then I can send a poorly prepared assassin (espionage has never been big in the Ilse, and generally successful spies have to spend most of their time cinvincing the nobility that they are trustworthy, which has lead to poor development of the espionage industry.

I am assuming said spy would be in Keverai. How would Revire find out about the serf exploitation?

I want to see if I can get my Opposition Leader connected to some corruption from when he was Prime Minister linking it to San Javier. If anything he should resign from this. Also I may link the Kevari papers to my own government classified information being leaked but preferably after the San Montagnan occupation. P.S a senior government official will step down from this (not the PM tho)

"ai" is a typical Ahnslen suffix to places, with the "ai" literally meaning place of (in a shortened form)

I pronounce it kev-er-eye

I'll be posting the first IC post of the RP in the IC thread in about 20h from now, which you will find here when it happens. If you want to introduce any of the businessmen or politicians living their daily lives (For the sake of building characterisation) before the actual leaks, a great time to do that would be within the next week or two.

Cheers.
