Kruger's Gold - Treasure Hunter RP (OoC/Signup)

Postby Independent Gredavcat » Sat Feb 07, 2015 1:38 am

Kruger's Gold.



Plot Introduction.

2014.

Diving in The Taiwan Straight searching for the sunken but treasure-laden Japanese ship Awa Maru, the treasure hunting team of James Beech and Arno Sanctum stumble upon a strange clue. A letter, concealed in a bottle, written in French which will point the pair in the direction of another treasure said to be worth $250,000,000.

However, another more ruthless profiteer has his/her sights on the potential fortune. Lord Charles Elizabeth Abbot is a force to be reckoned with and he will stop at nothing to get his hands on fame and fortune.

James and Arno will need to keep their wits about them as they travel the world solving puzzles and trying their best not to get killed in the process.


Hopefully I have your interest after that short introduction, basically this is your classic adventurer / treasure hunter RP. I plan on this RP being a small and character driven one (so please only committed and quality RPers).

This RP will take our characters all over the world - they will face dangers, betrayal and hardships. If you wish to create a character from scratch then that's fine, so long as they are relevant to the RP.

I tried to launch this RP last year but it failed, so i have decided to try on more time. in this RP I am looking for just a few people, though more will always be welcome. If you have read the introduction then you will have noticed that I need a partner for my RP character. If you are interested please fill out the application below. Your character can be James' close friend, wife or even just someone he stumbled into earlier that week either way their needs to be a strong chemistry between the two characters.

And of course we need a villain, after all what treasure hunter story would be complete without one? The villain needs to be......well bad. I'm looking for someone who can RP as a ruthless and heartless character who is prepared to use his/her vast wealth and resources to take the treasure at any cost.

Finally, perhaps you want to be involved in this RP but not in the form of a partner or a villain. Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable to RP as a minor character i.e. as the villain's henchman, as the treasure hunter's puzzle / riddle expert or even as a helpful local.

Treasure Hunters
- James Beech
Name: James Beech
Age: 39
Appearance: Thick Black hair, with slight stubble. Denim jeans and Henley shirt with brown boots.
Nationality: South African.
Biography: Being brought up in Johannesburg by a middle class family, James enjoyed a privileged childhood. He, his mother, father and sister would often go to their holiday home in neighbouring Namibia and it was here that James discovered his thirst for adventure. Countless times he would wander off for miles and, usually, make it back in one piece.

At age 15 his parents told him that they had saved enough money to send him to an international school in London - for James this was bad news as he planned to stay in South Africa until he had enough money to travel to the far flung places on the Earth.

Arriving in London James struggled to settle in - the bustling city was a far cry from the vast openness of the Namib Desert. He made few friends and counted the days until his time at school ended.

For the next three years he was educated to the highest standard however he did not like being surrounded by the world's upper class elite. During his time in London he studied history - this included ancient and modern history where he learned about the great explorers of the world. Vasco Da Gama, Ferdinand Magellan and Francis Drake - the heroes of exploration. James soon aspired to be like these men from the past and, much to the despair of his parents, decided that after school he would travel the world in search of legendary missing treasure. In truth he never thought he would find anything, he really just wanted to see more of the world.

At school he met, and grew to dislike, Lord Charles Elizabeth Abbot. For James, Charlie as he knew him (he hadn't become a Lord yet), personified everything he disliked - arrogant, sly and believing he was born to rule over people. James and Charlie openly were rivals and everyone knew it. Charles too grew to admire the explorers of the days of old however James knew that he, if he found any treasure, would surely keep it from himself and bask in the media attention.

Aged 18 James left school and followed his dream. For the next two decades he become renowned in the treasure hunting world - finding various pieces in his native South Africa, The Azores, South East Asia and Belgium. Donating all his finds to museums he lives confortably and makes his money by giving interviews and writing books on his adventures. He is worth and estimated $2,000,000 however his finds over the years have amounted to around $250,000,000.


Arno Sanctum

Name: Arno Sanctum
Age: 25
Appearance:
Nationality: American
Experience in field: considered a genius in field of Archaeology
Relationship to James:School Friend
Biography (please state how he/she met James): Arno was born the US, but moved to Quebec Canada when he was 3 and became very fluent in French though English was spoken at home. When he turned 9 he was labeled as a prodigy and was sent to an International School in London. There he focused on his history lessons and made a friend during his first year at the school which was James. Arno hated being a prodigy though, so he insisted that he go through the whole system like everyone else. But it was James' last year at the school when Arno arrived, though he met the soon to be lord. He always thought something was off about that guy. Abbot always seemed so pompous and arrogant about everything and he would no doubt seek fame and fortune for himself. So at the age of 15 he graduated and attended college for four years and has now recently graduated and is now hoping to join his old friend on many adventures.


Villain- Lord Charles Elizabeth Abbot, 7th Baron of Colchester
Name: Lord Charles Elizabeth Abbot, 7th Baron of Colchester
Age: 39
Appearance: Handsome (All other details to be decided once I have an age...)
Nationality: English
Biography: [WIP] If every peer in the United Kingdom was like Lord Abbot, revolutionary France wouldn't have been the only ones beheading every aristocrat they could lay hands on. Charles likely should have been whipped as a child, but his mother was aghast at the though of her noble son's posterior being struck for anything at all, let alone ensuring that the local plebes respected the difference in their positions in the social order. He excelled at athletics and academics while in school, as is only right for a member of the aristocracy.

Charles and James first met each other in school, quickly took a dislike to one another and have been rivals ever since. The refusal by James to recognize the young aristocrat's obvious superiority by birthright during their first encounter would set the tone for their constant struggle for many years. Every time that James bested him in anyway (which happened about as often as not in school) was regarded as a personal insult, and drove Charles all the harder to excel. Both James and Charles found themselves fascinated by the historical adventures of the great explorers. Charles began to dream of such a life for himself, travelling to far flung reaches to bring civilization to savages and returning with treasures for the glory of the Empire (which, sadly, no longer existed, though the Commonwealth did help bring the light of British culture to those many poor nations).

Upon leaving school, Charles spent four years as an officer of the Royal Marine Corps. It was during this time that he first reunited with childhood friend Mary Cooper, the only daughter of his father's good friend Sir John Cooper. Mary was often a calming influence in Charles, bringing out his more human charactersistics. When he was deployed, he would write to Mary daily and lived for the days when her return letters would arrive.

After seperating from the RMC, Charles bade goodbye to Mary and his family as he went out to make a name for himself, much as James had already done. His adventures would take him to the far flung corners he dreamed of and, if he wasn't able to bring civilization to the savage he did return with treasures he would sell to numerous museums. During this time, he and James would often find themselves in competition for the same items, and there were plenty of times what was briefly James's became his. Charles was ruthless and underhanded in his efforts to gain those treasures, though his traps and schemes were never deadly. He instead prefered to have the oppurtunity to gloat over his defeated rival.

This continued for a number of years until a word reached Charles of his father's death. Charles returned to England, distraught that he had missed his fathers last years. He found comfort in Mary's arms and after the funeral asked her hand in marriage. They were married within the month and the two began a world tour for their honeymoon. Begining in Paris, then onto Milan, Casa Blanca, Trinidad and finally their tragic stop in coastal Belize.

By chance, they encountered James and, at Mary's insistence, the Charles and James struck a truce after so many years. James, wishing the couple a wonderful honeymoon recomended a local ancient native temple they may visit to see the sights. The newlyweds acted on the recomendation and went to the temple. While exploring, calamity struck and some of the structure collapsed upon them. Though Charles was largely unhurt, Mary's pelvis was crushed. Help arrived quickly to unearth them, aided by a near histerical James, but Charles was found cradling the head of his poor, deceased bride when they were found. When James attempted to console Charles, the he whirled upon James, blaming him for Mary's death.

What humanity had been brought to Charles by Mary's influence has since fled the man. Charles has vowed to destroy James, and his schemes now include assassination as goal. Lord Abbort, as he insists all address him if he is not being addressed by his baronial title, uses the contacts he established at the international school and his considerable wealth to pursue his goals completely free of conscience. He still cares more about his pursuit of treasures and wealth, but it only barely over shadows his desire to utterly destroy his nemesis.

Biography

Allen Hargreaves was born in the outskirts of London to a single father, who drank frequently and spent all his time playing crappy computer games. It was probably because of his father's less-than-holy habits that Allen became somewhat of a hooligan in school, getting suspended on multiple occasions for playing practical jokes and not doing homework. Some assignments were left unfinished for months on end.

As a result of some last minute studying, Allen managed to scrape through his education, making it to a small, obscure university in the UK, where he studied social sciences. After just 2 months, however, he dropped out of school, going back to live with his alcoholic gamer father in the house, where he lived off of welfare and pocket money earned from his job as a night shift KFC cashier.

His life could only qualify as aimless during this time. When he wasn't at his job, he would either be at home playing video games or at sleazy cafés in the urban areas of London. His social circle consisted entirely of random people he knew on Facebook, as well as the occasional illegal racer.

Soon, his father died of alcohol poisoning, and the 27 year old Allen Hargreaves was left in the house on his own. As he didn't care much for his father, he wasn't really affected in any emotional way. With his newfound autonomy, the street urchin invited some of his shady friends to live in the house with him, where they spent all their time throwing late night beer parties and smoking pot.

One particular day, however, the gang of vagabonds somehow managed to break into a department store, stealing £17,000. With this huge amount of cash, along with an entire police force breathing down their necks, the gang decided to leave the UK as soon as they could. Allen wasn't ready to share the money though. On the night before they were scheduled to leave, he got all 6 of his friends drunk, before tying them up with masking tape and restraining them to the walls in the bathroom, some in less than flattering positions.

With £17,000 all to himself, Allen flew to Taiwan, where he squandered all his money in pubs, casinos and sex shops. In half a year, all the money he had had been flushed down the drain, and Allen was, once again, broke. He used the remaining money he had to purchase a kitchen knife, which he used to rob shops and "rent" houses to spend his nights. Week after week, he went on his routine of debauchery and crime, his excessive lifestyle becoming less and less of a shock to himself.

However, he soon realised that this could not go on forever, when a shopkeeper who was well versed in boxing managed to badly chip one of his canines, foiling his attempt to rob the store of its cash. He fled from the city, heading to various locations in the countryside. During this time, he often visited temples to pray to Oriental deities he didn't know (and to steal religious jewellery), as well as to find a place for himself to stay. It was then that he overheard a conversation about a certain Kruger's treasure, worth an astronomical amount of money. Encapsulated by the prospect of becoming rich once again, the British thug quietly bought himself a pair of sports shoes (with stolen money) and a cell phone (also with stolen money), heading back to the urban ares of Taiwan to find out more about this "Kruger's Gold" that was rumoured about…

Really nice bio. Particularly the section on the death of Charles' wife.

Would you be willing, if there is no further interest, to start this RP with just the two of us? I will wait to see if anyone else applies but if not, I think a small 2 person RP would be good. Please tell me your thoughts. Thanks.

Biography

Allen Hargreaves was born in the outskirts of London to a single father, who drank frequently and spent all his time playing crappy computer games. It was probably because of his father's less-than-holy habits that Allen became somewhat of a hooligan in school, getting suspended on multiple occasions for playing practical jokes and not doing homework. Some assignments were left unfinished for months on end.

As a result of some last minute studying, Allen managed to scrape through his education, making it to a small, obscure university in the UK, where he studied social sciences. After just 2 months, however, he dropped out of school, going back to live with his alcoholic gamer father in the house, where he lived off of welfare and pocket money earned from his job as a night shift KFC cashier.

His life could only qualify as aimless during this time. When he wasn't at his job, he would either be at home playing video games or at sleazy cafés in the urban areas of London. His social circle consisted entirely of random people he knew on Facebook, as well as the occasional illegal racer.

Soon, his father died of alcohol poisoning, and the 27 year old Allen Hargreaves was left in the house on his own. As he didn't care much for his father, he wasn't really affected in any emotional way. With his newfound autonomy, the street urchin invited some of his shady friends to live in the house with him, where they spent all their time throwing late night beer parties and smoking pot.

One particular day, however, the gang of vagabonds somehow managed to break into a department store, stealing £17,000. With this huge amount of cash, along with an entire police force breathing down their necks, the gang decided to leave the UK as soon as they could. Allen wasn't ready to share the money though. On the night before they were scheduled to leave, he got all 6 of his friends drunk, before tying them up with masking tape and restraining them to the walls in the bathroom, some in less than flattering positions.

With £17,000 all to himself, Allen flew to Taiwan, where he squandered all his money in pubs, casinos and sex shops. In half a year, all the money he had had been flushed down the drain, and Allen was, once again, broke. He used the remaining money he had to purchase a kitchen knife, which he used to rob shops and "rent" houses to spend his nights. Week after week, he went on his routine of debauchery and crime, his excessive lifestyle becoming less and less of a shock to himself.

However, he soon realised that this could not go on forever, when a shopkeeper who was well versed in boxing managed to badly chip one of his canines, foiling his attempt to rob the store of its cash. He fled from the city, heading to various locations in the countryside. During this time, he often visited temples to pray to Oriental deities he didn't know (and to steal religious jewellery), as well as to find a place for himself to stay. It was then that he overheard a conversation about a certain Kruger's treasure, worth an astronomical amount of money. Encapsulated by the prospect of becoming rich once again, the British thug quietly bought himself a pair of sports shoes (with stolen money) and a cell phone (also with stolen money), heading back to the urban ares of Taiwan to find out more about this "Kruger's Gold" that was rumoured about…

Biography

Allen Hargreaves was born in the outskirts of London to a single father, who drank frequently and spent all his time playing crappy computer games. It was probably because of his father's less-than-holy habits that Allen became somewhat of a hooligan in school, getting suspended on multiple occasions for playing practical jokes and not doing homework. Some assignments were left unfinished for months on end.

As a result of some last minute studying, Allen managed to scrape through his education, making it to a small, obscure university in the UK, where he studied social sciences. After just 2 months, however, he dropped out of school, going back to live with his alcoholic gamer father in the house, where he lived off of welfare and pocket money earned from his job as a night shift KFC cashier.

His life could only qualify as aimless during this time. When he wasn't at his job, he would either be at home playing video games or at sleazy cafés in the urban areas of London. His social circle consisted entirely of random people he knew on Facebook, as well as the occasional illegal racer.

Soon, his father died of alcohol poisoning, and the 27 year old Allen Hargreaves was left in the house on his own. As he didn't care much for his father, he wasn't really affected in any emotional way. With his newfound autonomy, the street urchin invited some of his shady friends to live in the house with him, where they spent all their time throwing late night beer parties and smoking pot.

One particular day, however, the gang of vagabonds somehow managed to break into a department store, stealing £17,000. With this huge amount of cash, along with an entire police force breathing down their necks, the gang decided to leave the UK as soon as they could. Allen wasn't ready to share the money though. On the night before they were scheduled to leave, he got all 6 of his friends drunk, before tying them up with masking tape and restraining them to the walls in the bathroom, some in less than flattering positions.

With £17,000 all to himself, Allen flew to Taiwan, where he squandered all his money in pubs, casinos and sex shops. In half a year, all the money he had had been flushed down the drain, and Allen was, once again, broke. He used the remaining money he had to purchase a kitchen knife, which he used to rob shops and "rent" houses to spend his nights. Week after week, he went on his routine of debauchery and crime, his excessive lifestyle becoming less and less of a shock to himself.

However, he soon realised that this could not go on forever, when a shopkeeper who was well versed in boxing managed to badly chip one of his canines, foiling his attempt to rob the store of its cash. He fled from the city, heading to various locations in the countryside. During this time, he often visited temples to pray to Oriental deities he didn't know (and to steal religious jewellery), as well as to find a place for himself to stay. It was then that he overheard a conversation about a certain Kruger's treasure, worth an astronomical amount of money. Encapsulated by the prospect of becoming rich once again, the British thug quietly bought himself a pair of sports shoes (with stolen money) and a cell phone (also with stolen money), heading back to the urban ares of Taiwan to find out more about this "Kruger's Gold" that was rumoured about…

Updated my image.

Also, was I right in my assumption your boat was pulling into a PRC harbor and not one across the strait?

I'm crying a little over this. This looked like it was going to be so much fun. And I was going to be super evil, yet tortured over it.
