So I am having this new RP idea, which I won't yet most likely launch but certainly want to be reserved in future and I would like to see how much interest it would gather. It would be set in the PT/FanT version of Nifon, namely the Sonjoverse, and IC wise, events of this RP would also be story of a TV series in MT Nifon.



Nifon, year 1561 of our Lord. It's been 7 years after the end of Sonjo war. Ryuta Shakurin is dead, Kenshin Murakami now sits as chancellor of the realm (still refusing the title of Shogun). Yet, his influence, as much as it is restraining, can't stop human nature. Vast majority of realm lords hate him, though follow either out of fear, or out of greed. Ryukai had fractured into multiple small cults, which still aim to realie the Dragon Emperor's vision, and the youkai, though badly battered, are still running around.

The capital is now governed by Date Sorin. Due to it's fast level of development, there is a lot of crime, with yakuzas gaining more and more influence. Ryukai cults are slowly starting their infiltration, with not even Kenshin's court being spared. There are rumors of Youkai moving under the city, and legends of ancient tomb of a powerful rasetsu holding enormous riches - and something that could as well topple the Shogunate should it fall into wrong hands.

To keep order in the city, Date Sorin forms Shinsentai - an elite unit of Samurai, who will uphold the law by operating at it's verge. The players would be RPing characters from Shinsentai and fight everything from Yakuza bosses, through oni cultists, on youkai ending. Basically a Jidaigeki version of Tropa de Elite, with minor FanT elements.

If anybody here has seen the thread for old Widowmaker's Lair I have made, disregard that RP. This one is the official one. The old one was hijacked (particularly it its now-deleted Discord server) by toxic trashtalk, bashing, and shitposting, so I had to declare it dead.

THE WIDOWMAKER'S LAIR
Here, you can only survive…or die trying.

Image


IC Thread | Discord Server | Recommended Listening: Keith Power - Smiles From Juran


The northern half of Palmyrion is known to most, from the average layperson to the most adept of political experts, as the Widowmaker’s Lair – and with a good explanation about its place in Palmyrian geopolitics and history, it is easy to understand why.

Its soils, rocks, and waters bear the scars of 2,500 years of seemingly non-stop high-intensity conflict, and it has been fed and watered by the flesh and blood of over half a billion souls. The conflicts that dotted the Ten Kingdoms period kept a river of blood running for nearly 1,000 years straight, making it perhaps one of the longest-lasting conflicts in world history – and so far the bloodiest in Palmyrian history, with death toll estimates sometimes reaching 250,000,000 all over the Palmyrian mainland, accumulated over 1,000 years. The Makiling Civil War (1550-1600) claimed an estimated 40,000,000 – 50,000,000 lives. Subsequent rebellions against the following Spanish colonial government, all culminating into the Palmyrian War of Sovereignty (1790-1800), have killed roughly the same. The Reconquest War between the Lardite Semi-Enclave and the Royal Confederacy (1850-1880) saw the death of 100,000,000 Palmyrians, of which 80,000,000 were Lardite cultists. The Dark Era was marked by Palmyrion’s four civil wars, with the Dark Era as a whole killing 125,000,000 Palmyrians.

However, the carnage didn’t end there.

Ultranationalist and Islamist rebellions rocked the entire country on 1992 and 1996, respectively, resulting into the infant Royal Commonwealth ramping up armaments production at the expense of civilian consumers’ satiation until the rebellions were quelled. They would, however, come back with a hard vengeance on 2008, resulting into Operation Consolidator. The operation resulted into the Royal Commonwealth retaking and reconsolidating authority over the coastal provinces, and the beginning of the destabilization of the Ultranationalist and Islamist rebellions by the continued existence of loyalist militias deep in enemy territories. When, in an effort to consolidate their control over their respective territories, the Ultranationalist and Islamist rebellions established their enclaves and declared independence on 2015, the Royal Commonwealth, alongside a massive multinational coalition, launched an operation to retake the provinces for good, with the last remnants of Ultranationalist and Islamist insurrection flushed out by August 2018. These conflicts killed an estimated 48,000,000 over the course of 24 years.

With the conflict ended, it seemed that the region will soon stabilize and finally lose its infamous name after a long period of reconciliation, reconstruction, and revitalization. At once, the government, in concert with the private workers’ cooperatives that were pretty much the standard corporate model in Palmyrion, started initiatives to reconstruct and revitalize the region from the ground up, building on the rubble that littered across the region, with police and military providing security and order. Finally the rays of a new dawn shone on these heavily embattled lands. 2019 would, optimistically, become the first year that the region never saw armed conflict.

However, there are, as we know it, places where the sun’s rays can’t reach, and in a similar fashion, the rays of this apparent new dawn would fail to bring light to some places – and it was here, in these dark and damp corners, that the blight of armed conflict would grow again. From the ashes of the wars fought in Palmyrion emerged demons no better than their Islamist and Ultranationalist successors. Religious extremists and ethnic ultranationalists, tired of their perceived persecution and poor assimilation in Palmyrian society, rose from the rubble, bestowing new life upon old and battle-worn spiteful souls. Organized crime syndicates found an opportunity for profit among the lawless rubble, in brazen defiance of the law and in expense of the innocent.

Left unchecked, such a blight would spread like wildfire engulfing these lands in yet another armed conflict – but the Royal Commonwealth’s armed uniformed services, the Civil Defense Force (a paramilitary internal security police force) and the Armed Forces of Palmyrion (the Royal Commonwealth’s military force), stand in the way. The government has regained control of the region, with the CDF and AFP working hand-in-hand to consolidate the Royal Commonwealth’s sovereignty over the area and win over the hearts and minds of the people, albeit at times using heavy-handed measures. Local loyalist militias are now asking for recognition from the government, and only their support for (and witness of) the stabilization and reconstruction efforts are what’s keeping them satisfied.

While the flames of war have been reduced to mere embers, embers can still spark bigger flames, and all these embers need are tinder and fuel - and someone to fan the flames:
  • Ethnic ultranationalists | Modern-day Palmyrion is a melting pot of ethnic sociocultural groups and identities ranging from the varied ethnic minority groups (all of which make up just 5% of the Palmyrian populace), to the ethnic Romandean and Marshite populations, to the native Palmyrians who called Palmyrion home since the dawn of civilization in Palmyrion. While these ethnic groups have since buried their hatchets to collaborate for a prosperous and just Palmyrian nation-state collective, that doesn’t mean they don’t know where they buried these hatchets, let alone leave them buried.
  • Religious extremists | Palmyrion, in its Commonwealth Charter of 1984, is officially a secular state, favoring no religion above all others – but the more extreme religious groups think otherwise. They exalt their deities as the one and only true gods and goddesses they must worship, their sacred texts the only true works of the divine, and all others as dangerous heretics. For them, the only ways to influence others – and ultimately the government – is by manipulation, be it coercive conversion or insidious altruism, and if needed by force, be it honor killings, assassinations, or outright armed conflict.
  • Organized crime syndicates | All they care about is profiteering at the expense of the defenseless and the innocent, in brazen defiance of law and order. They profit from illicit operations such as, among others, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and the illegal weapons trade. All that one needs to join their ranks is to choose their poison, get literal partners-in-crime, start their illicit operations, invest in the expansion and maintenance of such, and violently teach a lesson to those who compete with them or interfere in their operations – and they won’t stop at even divine intervention.
  • The Others | Wildcards, with their own ideologies, causing a gaping hole in the CID’s intelligence. By the time CID knows their intentions and activities, they are already entangled deep into the thorned brambles of this simmering conflict, trapped in a catch-22 about how to safely withdraw from the simmering conflict should the need arise.

Only time can tell when the region has truly seen peace – but one wrong move can make things worse. The worst mistakes come from two places: action without thought, and thought without action.

Agreed. A World War or Cold War era RP would be very refreshing. there seems to be an influx of MT and PMT RP.

Just to make sure, as I seem to keep guessing wrong on this, but...
1. Are players playing RL nations, terrorist, and ethnic groups, or are they playing as their NS nations, or sort of a mix of the two?
2. If a mix of the two, who is playing Al Qaeda, Daesh/ISIS, Ingushetia, Dagestan, Saudi Arabia and Azerbaijan, or are these just NPCs controlled by you?
3. Seems logical that this would be MT, but unless explicitly stated, someone is going to exploit that loophole. Is it MT? MT/PMT? Are FT and FanTech allowed?
4. Do you have force (troop and equipment) limits as to what everyone can bring in?
5. Are you trying to have equal sides or can everyone just dog pile up on one side against the other?
6. Are you allowing WMDs in your RP?

Not to be a buzzkill, but these are important things you might want to think about before you open up your RP and invite everyone in. Otherwise, it's like 90% of the other trainwreck II RPs that crash and burn within the first two pages.

1 and 2. I was thinking that people could apply/ask to play as Azerbaijan, Saudi Arabia, Al-Qaeda, Russia, or any other group mentioned in the OP, but otherwise they'd probably be some other nation with some sort of "WA peacekeeping" mission or intervention.
3. It would probably be MT/PT
4. A limit of around 15,000 troops from foreign intervention forces would probably be applied, but I'm not actually sure of what a realistic number might be. For people playing as Azerbaijan, Russia, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, or any other group/army in the region, there would probably be a limit of about 80,000 troops.
5. I'd probably put limits on the number of nations/groups per side.
6. Non-nuclear missiles would probably be allowed, and chemical weapons could be used by factions which don't respect international treaties.

I'm pretty new to RP'ing, so tips would be helpful.

Sure, glad to help. I think you're on the right track and you're thinking it all through. Looking pretty good so far.

While you don't want to be too inflexible, there's some things you shouldn't bend on. For instance, you might want to tighten down on WMDs and troop limits, but lighten up on what nation or group a player can play. Maybe you need to come to a decision as to whether it's RL nations or NS nations. You can ask people to fulfill certain roles: You need a player with an NS nation that is like Saudi Arabia, or has a terrorist group in their canon that is like ISIL or Al Qaeda. There's a few out there. Someone who has a NS nation that is like Russia - there's literally hundreds, if not thousands of nations on NS like that.
If you insist on mixing RL and NS nations though, you can't get mad when people decide on what distances they are from the AO (Area of Operations). Interpretations will vary.

Once you open the door on WMDs - chemical weapons - it's tough to shut the door back on them again.

Lastly, demand quality RP. No one liners posts unless it's dialogue response. Be strict on godmodding, or it will get away from you. Have a clear OOC/Interest thread, which you should start off with first, and then launch your IC thread for RP when things are well in hand and you know who is on what side and what they are doing from what was discussed in the OOC thread. Applications to join the RP help best with this.

Have fun!

New Aeyariss wrote:So I am having this new RP idea, which I won't yet most likely launch but certainly want to be reserved in future and I would like to see how much interest it would gather. It would be set in the PT/FanT version of Nifon, namely the Sonjoverse, and IC wise, events of this RP would also be story of a TV series in MT Nifon.



Nifon, year 1561 of our Lord. It's been 7 years after the end of Sonjo war. Ryuta Shakurin is dead, Kenshin Murakami now sits as chancellor of the realm (still refusing the title of Shogun). Yet, his influence, as much as it is restraining, can't stop human nature. Vast majority of realm lords hate him, though follow either out of fear, or out of greed. Ryukai had fractured into multiple small cults, which still aim to realie the Dragon Emperor's vision, and the youkai, though badly battered, are still running around.

The capital is now governed by Date Sorin. Due to it's fast level of development, there is a lot of crime, with yakuzas gaining more and more influence. Ryukai cults are slowly starting their infiltration, with not even Kenshin's court being spared. There are rumors of Youkai moving under the city, and legends of ancient tomb of a powerful rasetsu holding enormous riches - and something that could as well topple the Shogunate should it fall into wrong hands.

To keep order in the city, Date Sorin forms Shinsentai - an elite unit of Samurai, who will uphold the law by operating at it's verge. The players would be RPing characters from Shinsentai and fight everything from Yakuza bosses, through oni cultists, on youkai ending. Basically a Jidaigeki version of Tropa de Elite, with minor FanT elements.


If it's done on international incidents instead of the backwaters of this forum p2tm, I'm in.

Honestly, you might be okay with what you had in mind. I think depending on the types of groups and nations involved it would vary greatly, if you're being realistic. A Russia like nation or other power is going to be able to field more troops than say a multi-national group like ISIS or Al-Qaeda. Homegrown rebels (Chechens, Ingushetians, etc.) would probably have a decent amount of personnel to call on, but maybe not a lot of front line combat fighters. Peacekeeping forces would also likely be contributing smaller sizes of troops to work with other nations in that peacekeeping coalition, unless they were acting unilaterally or with just one or two other allies. The kind of conflict you're talking about wouldn't involve a huge amount of ground troops, armor and equipment because it would be more small action/guerrilla/COIN and less large battlefields. The more troops thrown in the field, the more logistics you have to involve to maintain them. Sorry, but I can't give you a simple answer. Maybe it would make more sense to limit the number of troops per side, rather than per player.

Naval and air operations would be a whole other discussion. Would this be near a large coast, or is this going to actually be based in the RL Caucasus region?

This would be in the Caucasus, so navies such as the Russians, Iranians, Azerbaijanis, Kazakhs, or Turkmen, may be able to launch missiles from vessels in the Caspian Sea. The likely hood of a European fleet on the Caspian is very low, so Navies would have to launch missiles either from the air, or launch long-range ones from Black Sea (Missiles can't go that far, can they?).

I'm thinking about starting the IC thread... I'm not entirely sure when, to be honest.
