The Fall: Planning [TWI Only|OOC|Semi-Open]

by Mokov
The Fall is to be an espionage/spy RP that later evolves into a civil war, and is heavily character-focused. On one side are the Royalists, a faction devoted to maintaining the power of the monarchy at any cost. Despite their brutality, they also look to be far more stable of the two factions involved. On the other side are the Sons of Mokov, a radical democratic movement that seeks to overthrow the current system of government and replace it with a much freer and open system. However, they aren't above making use of terror attacks or political assassinations, and their leadership is largely composed of former people of power spurned by the King and his reform program. In the middle of this is the King, a young man unprepared to rule, but who makes every attempt to do so as well as he can. Any who wish to participate can simply TG me or ask on the RMB. Feel free to give suggestions or put forth ideas.

General Outline (subject to change):

1. Death of Old King Alexei
2. Ascension of King Ivan
3. Rising Dissent against royal government
4. Sons of Mokov organized by ousted former government members [beginning of outside involvement in RP]
5. Attempted assassination of Ivan by Sons of Mokov
6. Crackdown by Royalists, international reaction
7.Terror attack in capitol city
8. Collapse of Mokovi economy
9. Sons of Mokov attempt to force Ivan to abdicate
10. Tensions boil over, civil war begins
11. Various bits of civil war RP
12. War devolves into stalemate
13. Ivan killed/wounded/captured
14. International intervention
15. End (?)

I'd be interested in participating, using my nation's Foreign Intelligence Directorate of the Central Intelligence Bureau to rile up support for the Sons of Mokov, and later provide arms to them clandestinely once war starts, in exchange for a little socialist influence. It would be good, too, considering how close our countries are together.

Feel free! Got any idea for early on? I'm thinking that one of your agents gets into contact with a prominent leader of the Sons and we go from there.

That would be good. I'd imagine these agents would come from the Brulafi embassy. (I assume our two countries have mutual embassies, correct?)

Well, considering just how close we are, it would make sense.

Alright. Would these Sons be actively seeking armed revolution from the get-go? Or will they be originally advocating for peaceful reform before some event sets them off?

I think that they'll initially be a peaceful movement until either some action by the Royalists or interference by your agent pushes them into extremism.

Alright. I doubt my agent would be the first to make a move of that type, out of fear that it would make the international subterfuge more easy to notice. I think this will be a neat lil' RP and I can't wait to see what you come up with for the IC thread!

Wellsia would support the monarchy and make attempts to prevent civil war, since this could disrupt trade with Raedlon and the Four Passages.

We'd definitely be supporting the Sons of Mokov, likely not through military support, but through funding. This might create a problem for my government, as the Green Party is an important part of the government coalition, and is fiercely antiwar. Also, I have a couple of ideas for the plot:

Multinational corporations attempt to prop up the monarchy, due to the regime being an important trade partner, and hire mercenaries private security companies to fight for the royalists.

Mokov has vast amounts of resources (oil, gold, lumber, etc.) and the civil war severely disrupts the global economy.

I like that idea! I think I'll implement that into the IC thing

Scantarbia is interested to send troops during the civil war to act as "peacekeepers" and monitor the application of Laws of War during the period of conflict, this troops will be supplemented with Scantarbian Red Cross and war journalists to document the conflict. In the background, Scantarbia will arm those who wish to overthrow the monarchy in return of post-war construction contracts awarded to Scantarbian companies.

A little suggestion, you should put link to the IC on the OOC and vice-versa.

If you can figure out how to work in your "Peacekeepers", feel free!

As a monarchy it would be fitting to send equipment and funding to royalist forces.
Possibly with an ambassador and a field martial to help.

Since there would be a bunch of people helping out the rebels, some support for the monarchy is welcome. Go for it!

After reading the latest news post with shots fired at the funeral protest, I was wondering if I could play a relatively normal citizen of Mokov who aligns with the Sons? Like they haven’t been sure about the Sons but maybe a family member or friend is wounded at the protest (even dies of wounds in the near future?) and it pushes the character to support the Sons?

You can send a request to my government to send peacekeepers to maintain the situation, be noted though, the peacekeepers will be fully neutral on their conduct.

That sounds really interesting, go ahead!

At some point, the Sons of Mokov should declare themselves the legitimate government in the country, forcing countries to choose whether to recognize the monarchy or the SoM as the rightful government. Perhaps that's what causes things to intensify

Also, when the crap really starts hitting the fan, it might be interesting for the crisis to lead to a refugee crisis in central Argus/Mesder Sea as Mokovians flee the turmoil in their country.

Great, I’ll try to post in the IC tonight.

Whoops didn’t mean to fall silent all of a sudden. It’s harder to post in RP without my laptop working anymore, but I should have some time soon here. Perhaps I can fast forward a little bit and assume Emilia got away, to keep everything moving?

What could I do in this RP? I am interested and I am right by
