This War of Mine (OOC/Sign Ups/CLOSED)

Postby Terintania » Sun Sep 13, 2015 1:19 am


Image

Civil war has fallen on Vlavidonia, a small, poor, multi-ethnic country that can no longer maintain said war. No one believed that war would actually happen, until it did, and the city of Brestyiv was put under siege. Some people got out, but many others were trapped in the city, scavenging for supplies, and fighting to survive. Some starve, some get shot, and worst of all, some loose all will to live. What will happen to you?

In this RP, we play as average, everyday civilians trying to survive in a city under siege. I shall be in charge of the world, saying what dangers there are, what people you meet, and what supplies you get. I will also be keeping track of hunger, wounds, sickness and emotional state. Also, if you do anything stupid, you will die. I have no intentions of holding back out of feeling bad for hurting/killing people's characters. This RP isn't supposed to be happy-cheery RP.

Information about the War/Country:
Image

The war started in 1992, due to fighting between ethnic groups. Because, you know, humanity. It started when a group of rebels attempted to secede and declare an independent state in eastern Vlavidonia. They occupy the northern and eastern regions of the country, and in spring 1994, the Siege started. It is now autumn 1994, and the siege still rages on. The Military currently holds the city, while the Rebels attack.

Rules:
1.I look for quality posts. No one-liners. However, posts don't need to be huge, because this isn't exactly the kind of RP that works well for huge posts all the time.
2. Be nice to each other. I'm not even going to tell you to take it to telegrams, because that should be a rule of life :P
3. I am god. What I say, goes.
4.No Godmodding
5.This is more a warning than a rule. I am picky when it comes to apps. Especially on RPs like this. See restrictions bellow.
6. I will be in charge of the supplies that everyone finds.

Restrictions:
I will allow 2 characters to start out with weapons. Yes, just two. However, people may find/make guns over time.
As with the guns, I will allow 2 people to have a gun-related background. I will also allow these to be the only people with guns.
Available slots: 1

I will also not be accepting any Soldiers or Rebels.

[

App:
Name: Anna Kuznets
Age: 23
Appearance: Young women
Sex: Female
Ethnicity: Russian
Occupation: Accountant
Skills: Good at Maths, Innate talent for fighting
Weaknesses: Nobody deserves the cruelty of being exposed to her cooking, Has no idea how construct things, hatred for the rebels
Personal Items: , 3 cans, blanket, clothes on her back
Bio: When the war started, Anna Kuznets was the accountant for a medium sized IT firm in Brestyiv. She had only just finished university with a decree in Mathematics, and resented the outbreak in hostilities.

At first, tried to hold in Brestiyiv as this seemed to he relatively safe. All that changed when the siege started. On the very first day, a shell hit her home, blasting away half the house, and injuring her severely. Luckily, Red Cross hospital treated her wounds, and she made a full recovery.

She had watched in horror during her time in hospital how it became harder and harder to leave the city. By the time she had recovered, the prospect of leaving was gone. Surviving the war in Brestiyiv was the only option left.

Anna blamed the rebels for the war. Why were they So unhappy? It made no sense. Her life had been good, but then the rebels came and turned it to ashes. The military was merely fighting back against the savages.

She was forced to leave her old house when 3 rebel militiamen broke to steal her stuff. They pinned her down, AK-47 at her throat, and stole everything.

That is excepted her secret compartment, where emergency canned rations were stored under the floorboards. Taking those, and what little was left, she set out. Next time the rebels come, she will be ready. And not alone either.

App:
Name: Lance Hagen
Age: 30
Appearance:
Image

Sex: Male
Ethnicity: Danes
Occupation: Doctor

Skills:
1. Knows medicine (able to make medicines with less materials)
2. As a doctor, it means he is able to treat sick and wounded person well, and to be able to conserve the use of medicines to the patients.

Weaknesses:

Personal Items: 2 herbal medicines, a knife and a bandage.

Bio:
Born in Denmark, he was a good doctor, known in his own town as a kind-hearted and a pacifist doctor. Heard about the news of war in Vlavidonia, he volunteered into a humanitarian aid services to supplying the citizens with food and healthcare. It all went well and he even got a friend in form of a young girl in her twenties, freshly graduated from the medical school in Vlavidonia and now working tirelessly at the humanitarian service. Eventually, both doctors fell in love and promised to marry once the war's over.

One day, when the convoy of humanitarian aid workers tried to entered Brestyiv, they were attacked by the bandits who tried to stole their supplies and in the ensuing battle, both he and the female doctor got separated. Now, he resolved to survived the war, and the siege, and hopefully able to reunites with his lover in the end.

WIP

Name: Alexei Volkov

Age: 22

Appearance:
Image


Sex: Male

Ethnicity: Belarusian

Occupation: Private in the Militsiya

Skills:
  • Alexei has skill in using and maintaining firearms from his training as a militsiya officer. Although his main skill is with handguns, he has a small amount of training with heavier weapons. He also has some degree of physical training and practice with hand to hand combat, although he is on the weaker side with both.
  • In high school, Alexei prided himself on his musical skills, and was able to play several instruments. Although seemingly not much of a survival ability, a little bit of music is good for morale and helps to distract people from the terrible situation, especially children. Alexei is most skilled playing the bayan, but he has played other instruments in the past, and has a few songs memorized.

Weaknesses:
  • Alexei not only needs to care for himself, but also for his five year old daughter Anastasiya, who, very obviously, cannot take care of herself. As a result, he tends to put priority on her well being, often putting himself at risk in the process, even in situations where it isn't necessary.
  • Unlike in peacetime, the healthy respect for the law that comes with being in law enforcement is more of a hindrance in a time of war. Although it's one thing to loot buildings that are clearly abandoned, stealing and killing to get by is another story. More morally ambiguous actions, such as trading on the black market or scavenging from the dead, are sometimes acceptable, depending on the circumstances. When it comes to his daughter though, he is willing to make exceptions.

Personal Items: Makarov PM, 5 Bullets, Bayan, Militsiya Badge, Stuffed Bear, Blanket, Pack of Cigarettes

Bio: Born in the early 1970s in the Vladvidonian Soviet Socialist Republic, Alexei Volkov, like most of his family, dreamed of being a member of the militsiya for most of his young life. Growing up with his parents and two sisters in the city of Brestyiv, Alexei had a very uneventful childhood. The only out of the ordinary experience he had growing up was in high school, when his longtime girlfriend gave birth to their daughter, Anastasiya, and shortly after abandoned her with Alexei and moved to the neighboring Ukrainian SSR. Upon graduating high school, he became a private in the militsiya, weathering the turmoil that came in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union and fall of communism in Vladvidonia. When fighting broke out in the early 1990s, however, he began seeing conflict on the streets of Brestyiv, engaging in a number of small confrontations with protesters. One by one, his family packed up and moved to the neighboring Republic of Poland, leaving only Alexei and Anastasiya in the city when rebel forces laid siege to it. Since then, he has been doing whatever possible to keep himself and his daughter alive, taking advantage of his police connections to find a safe place to live for the first few years in the war, in a neighborhood heavily protected by government forces. Recently, however, the government forces there have been overrun by the rebels, and he has been forced to take refuge in an abandoned building in a government held area near the front lines.

Name: Jarn Petrokov
Age: 24
Appearance: A hard-bitten whipcord man, Jarn stands two point one meters tall, very little fat upon his body, clad in rough clothing reflecting his past deprivation. His eyes are a dark steel gray that occasionally warm to a deep blue in very rare moments that he smiles, and his hair is charcoal black, cut crudely but short, his beard full and similar.
Sex: Male
Ethnicity: Slavic Caucasian
Occupation: Drifter - Transient
Skills:
- Engineer: Despite never formally completing his education, Jarn was at one point a very learned man about the matters of technology and mechanical matters. This academic knowledge has been tempered over the years by living rough, and so Jarn is a master of getting the most use out of unlikely resources and creating useful contraptions.
- Skilled Scavenger: Having spent many years on the streets, the drifter knows exactly how to tell what is useful and what is trash, and even when what most people would think is rubbish is treasure in reality. He can scavenge quickly when necessary, and often finds more useful items than one would assume.
Weaknesses:
- Suspicious: He doesn't like people; for years his only human contact has tended to be negative, and competitive. Nobody makes friends of the homeless. His ability to negotiate or be charismatic is intensely limited, because he barely remembers social mores.
- Paranoid: When moving in unfamiliar locations, takes his own sweet time. Long experience has made him wary of moving rapidly, and so Jarn will almost never sprint unless in mortal danger. This makes him somewhat prone to getting stuck in sticky situations.
Personal Items: A set of useful tools (hammer, saw, etc.), a crowbar, thick winter clothing, lots of scraps of wood, metal, and six cans of meaty stew.
Bio: Grew up normally, washed out of university, forged a degree and joined the army off of that forged degree, was discovered, deserted, been living rough ever since as the world fell apart.

In light of the fact that every character at the moment but one has some kind of firearm (I can get handguns, but hunting rifles? In an urban area?), I feel like a limit should probably be placed on how many people can have them.

I'd happily swap my rifle for some tools, if it becomes an issue.

Speaking of which, I'm looking for a military/scavenger person to work with Jarn, any takers?

No, it's fine, just feel like some kind of limit should be established before it becomes an issue.

My char is a former militsyia (Belarusian police) officer, if that works. He could probably use somebody to help watch after his daughter too.

EDIT: I'd recommend that the OP also put the map of Vladvidonia that was in the interest thread into the OP, so as to give some idea of where it is.

Age: 19
Appearance:Image
Sex: Male
Ethnicity: Slavic
Occupation: Boxer
Skills: Good Fighter (Increased Melee damage), Fast runner. (Increased speed)
Weaknesses: No good at sneaking, horrid at bargaining.
Personal Items: Lead pipe (obtained from his destroyed home),box of a dozen protein bars.
Bio: Borys was born to poor parents in Vlavidonia. His mother specifically, was an abusive alcoholic who pretended to be normal when her husband was around. When he was at work though, it was pure Hell for Borys. After over a decade of constant physical, emotional, and verbal abuse; Borys could no longer contain his rage. He threw a right hook with an insane amount of power behind it, knocking his mother out cold and concussing her. When his father came back, Borys told him everything. His father was understanding, but remarked when he heard Borys only threw one punch. After everything with the police was sorted, his father suggest he take on boxing. Borys was in agreement and boxing became his passion. He pursued an amateur career. But when he was 19, disaster struck. The war that had seemed so far away came roaring at his city. His home was shelled, and his father killed by rebels. Now he's struggling to survive in the ruins.

Name: Kolya T. Kozlow

Age: 29

Appearance:
Image

Kolya stands at around 5 feet 9 inches. He is neither muscular nor fat, weighing around 157 pounds.

Sex: Male

Ethnicity: East Slavic

Occupation: Lawyer

Skills: Kolya has a sharp tongue, good at convincing others that his ideas are correct and will result in the most success. He is also quite perceptive, being good at noticing things others might overlook.

Weaknesses: He is overconfident, believing he is able to do nearly everything asked or desired from him, when he likely would not be able to do so. He is also a bit weaker than most men his size and age; He can't lift many things at once or things that are too heavy, and he has no combat experience. He likely would not be able to defend himself in a fight.

Personal Items: A grey digital wrist watch, a small metal flask with his initials carved into it, a worn, cracked photograph of his parents, and a small hair comb.

Bio: Kolya T. Kozlow was born in the northern Vlavidonian city of Ves, the third son of his parents. Being the youngest meant that he was spoiled, much to the annoyance of his brothers, who often bullied him. Growing up, however, he was quite popular in school, and had many friends. He had done well in school and began college at 18. During college, he was a smart student but often got into trouble, although he was usually able to convince his teachers to let him off with only a warning. He eventually graduated with a bachelor's degree in law, at 21. For about 4 years he worked at the Ves branch of a rather large law firm, Dolshoy and Co. However, he was transferred to the Brestyiv branch about a year before the war began. When the war began he attempted to leave the city and move back to Ves, but he was unable to afford the money to travel, having lost his job due to the company closing down. With the siege beginning in Brestyiv, he, like many others, have become trapped in the city.

Alright. I'm not going to look at apps right now because I only woke up to take my medicine, but looking through what people have said, it looks like I will have to lay down the law a bit :P Ok, that sounds a bit extreme, but yeah.

Basically, I will SEVERLY limit the amount of people with weapons, and will only allow weapons to people who have backgrounds it makes sense with. Which I will also very severely limit the amount of people who have a police background, and deny anyone with a soldier background. Because this RP isn't meant to be about people who know how to fight and such, this is about people like me (Possibly some of you, too) who have no fighting skill what-so-ever, just totally normal, trying to survive.

Upon graduating high school, he became a private in the militsiya, weathering the turmoil that came in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union and fall of communism in Vladvidonia. When fighting broke out in the early 1990s, however, he began seeing conflict on the streets of Brestyiv, engaging in a number of small confrontations with protesters. One by one, his family packed up and moved to the neighboring Republic of Poland, leaving only Alexei and Anastasiya in the city when rebel forces laid siege to it. Since then, he has been doing whatever possible to keep himself and his daughter alive, taking advantage of his police connections to find a safe place to live for the first few years in the war, in a neighborhood heavily protected by government forces. Recently, however, the government forces there have been overrun by the rebels, and he has been forced to take refuge in an abandoned building in a government held area near the front lines.

Bio: Kastytis Miniauskas comes from Trakai, Lithuania. He moved when he was fifteen and then joined a band for awhile, in a nearby city. After joining the band he played for a few years, his most famous hit is "Silver Potato" written and played by him. After that song though he left and started dating a Girl. But then it all started and he was drafted to go fight in Brestyiv, after a short time he deserted. Though he was in the military he never really learned to use guns.

OP said nobody is allowed to have military backgrounds, and a severe limit on weapons. I doubt the M1895 would fall within those limits.
