The Threat (TWI ONLY | OOC)

Postby Athara Magarat » Sat Jan 20, 2018 8:00 am

THREAT

Image





SHOCK is a notorious multinational threat which has carried out at least 50 documented attacks on at 15 countries around the Isles after January 10, 2016 incident in Coventry, where radicalized Athara Magarati national Namdhingo Kurumbang killed five innocent Covonantian citizens.

To combat this international menace, the Athara Magarati government has established a new counter-terrorist unit within the Armed Police Force of Athara Magarat. This unit, Deathstalker, is trained by Vancouvian Special Forces and C6 troops and their sole purpose is to hunt members of SHOCK, SOAR, White Rise and other multinational terror groups.

This is the story about the event and the THREAT terror groups still represent to the Isles.




Introduction


Welcome everyone to the THREAT. Below is the proposed plot for this RP. And please also note that it can change over the course of time or progression of the story.




Plot


Episode 1


  • A high-profile foreign diplomat (most likely Euranian) is assassinated by an unknown group in New Libang;
  • Police officers investigating the case come under attack in broad daylight;
  • All hostiles are killed in the shootout save for a woman who fails to commit suicide;
  • The woman is interrogated but no information is obtained;
  • A local gang ambush the facility she has been detained but the gang leader is also arrested;
  • Gang leader reveals he was paid huge amount of money by unknown sources;
  • Police discover that the woman escaped with known SHOCK suspects from the detention facility including a USB drive that the officials believe holds crucial information about SHOCK;
  • In the ensuing chase, the woman and her co have already fled the country and Deathstalker unit is sent after her team just as the San Montagnan invasion of Athara Magarat begins;
  • Upon arriving in a South Mesder country (need someone here), the fugitive woman Tara and her co discover that they have lost the box in which they kept the USB drive;
  • Following their target's trail, the Deathstalker team arrives in the South Mesder country's X city;
  • At the hotel they had checked out from, Tara and her cell discover the box but the USB drive is missing and learn from the manager that a waiter had found the box;
  • Tara and her cell ransack the waiter's flat while the tenants above the flat phone the waiter about the disturbance and he deduces that they might be wanted criminals;
  • The waiter contacts the police and then hurries to his flat to find an armed group waiting for him;
  • The police surround the house instantly and the waiter tells the terrorists to surrender;
  • Police barge into the house with smoke grenades and shots (etc) and the waiter escapes in his friend's car while a SHOCK member sacrifices himself to allow the others to hijack a car and chase after the waiter and the USB;
  • The Deathstalker unit as well as multiple counter-terrorist groups across the Isles are notified of the day's event;
  • Tara's cell retrieve the USB as the Deathstalker team mistakenly murder an innocent man.




Episode 2






Note: I know the plot is too much of a spoiler and maybe not exactly free-form. My ideas might also sound like something spouted by a six year old, hence any criticisms and better suggestions are very welcome.

So anyone offering to be the destination countries needed for this RP?

And starting this RP cause I haven't really RPed SHOCK. Most of the SHOCK attacks in the news are done by newer nations to the region. It's not like I am against that or anything. In fact I welcome those news as long as they are realistic.

Time to give some life to SHOCK.

Tagging...this sounds like a really cool rp...I offer Covonant as that South Mesder country and city Jueverna Ailis. I would nominate Ovast from Ostehaar as the Foreign intelligence agency (obviously Ostehaar would have to agree though)

Just curious since we are rping past event I doubt any of this would be mentioned in the news thread..but for the purpose of this rp we rp individually without cross referencing or interacting with others similar to the arvan rp where Covonant and Noronica RP with meetings and joint combats?

I sent TG to Ostehaar. Dunno what the response shall be. But I am open to other foreign intelligence being involved as well.

Yeah...we can say this event was ignored cause it happened the same time AM was invaded by San Montagna. And only after the TV series version of the incident came forth did people start having clear picture of what happened.

If your characters want to interact with each other, share info, etc yes otherwise I do not see references to anything else than events from October to December 2017.

I would also offer Belle Ilse en Terre as the South Mesder country and Stagsted as the city, unless Covonant works better.

Well we have a large criminal underbelly and terrible discrimination against illegal migrant workers so there's definitely room for us to be involved.

I have a certain problem with the premise of the story - how does a USB "activate" a terrorist cell? We're talking about people, after all, so why can't they be contacted in any other way?

I suggest a different content for the USB - it stores codes relevant to the target country's electricity\railroad infrastructure. This code has to get to a SHOCK "hacker" who waits in this country, and he knows how to integrate the code into a program which would attack this electricity\railroad infrastructure and shut it down for a few hours (until the authorities deal with it) or cause something (for example, cause several trains to collide).

Also, I think I'll RP this as my agency following the story as it unfolds, as initially this isn't a threat to Ostehaar. Once they learn something about the content of the USB, they decide that it would be in Ostehaar's interest to get the USB, and therefore they decide to intervene and contact the waiter.

That's not really how code works, though.

It'd be more realistic if they were access credentials or something. Or maybe insider information about a weakness in the software that can be exploited.

I know, I simplified it for the sake of getting the point through. I agree - what you suggested is sort of what I meant.

We haven't discussed it really yet AM, but how will the death of a Euranian diplomat be related to this series, other than cause an impetus for the purge we discussed (assumed from what was stated)?

Said Euranian diplomat was involved in detaining and deporting and "fake encounters" back home and this could another revenge assassination.

For Eurania, this could give the casus belli to start the purge.
