The Way Forward; A GATE RP [OOC] [OPEN]

Postby The Tophat Empire » Wed Oct 12, 2016 6:19 am





- All credit for cover pictures and imagery used by the OP goes to the artist(s), and all affiliated and related parties concerned. Thanks to the late Tri for Op template, rules, base of the app

- This RP is a combination of open-world and scripted story-telling. You will get to design your characters, but you will work closely with me in doing so in order to fill certain plot roles that are necessary to the story. You will also work closely with each other, in order to ensure that all characters behave believably and accordingly to Lore and IC Events. The actions of your characters will dramatically shape the direction of the story, but the creation of plot for this RP is primarily my responsibility: your characters will choose between the options that I make available, just as real people choose between the options that the world offers them.

- This RP's IC mechanics and OP structure draws a lot of inspiration from Reverend Norv's Likely Lads, Nightkill The Emperor's Elven High as well as Swith's OP Creation Guide. Credit to who where its due.

The Bare Neccesities

There are some events that just stick in the collective memories of man, no matter who you ask they will remember what they did when the news came, the end of world war two, the terrorist actions on us soil in 2001, and so on. This event is one much like those. We find ourselves in Stockholm, the date is December 24th, 2016 and the world is filled with the good joy of christmas. The clock is about to strike three in the afternoon on this sunny day, a relatively thick layer of snow ever present in the capital of sweden. It was looking to be a good day, no different from any other. But oh, it was. At first reports came into the dispatch center that hooligans dressed up as monsters were attacking random civilians. Then it escalated, a parking house in the outskirts of stockholm proper had detonated, first responders reported over twenty dead outside of the building, and they were under attack by hostile shooting at them with bow and arrow, and swords, in the skies something flew. The nation went into crisis mode. the government evacuated fearing a attack from russia and ordered the military on full alert. Aircraft was scrambled to intercept the presumed helicopters, the Royal guard, still in the ceremonial uniform they wore, together with riot police started to coperate in eliminating the unknown hostiles. Social media was equal as full as ideas as the government, "they were russians attacking", they were terrorists, or they were hooligans with drones having sheets between them. Alas they were all wrong, for the fighting was short, lasting only for a few hours. They were naught russians, hooligans not terrorists. But what looked like orcs from fantasy, the helicopters were not that either, but dragons. What followed was three months of secrecy, everything within a two kilometer radius of the destroyed building was locked down by the military. What looked like a large concrete bunker taking the demolished parking house place. But in early march it was revealed that a unit of soldiers, under UN banner would enter the portal that had brought the orcs and dragons here. The portal having been held as a state secret at the highest level until now.

Who are you in this story, a soldier of earth, sent as a explorer and soldiers. Or maybe a citizen on whatever lies on the other side. How will you shape the history that is being made, for both worlds?

OP is God
  • Obey the OP. My word is Law, Supreme and Final.
  • Obey the CO-OP(s). Their authority is passed only by mine.
  • Respect the ban. Bad things happen to PC's who don’t.
  • Complaints can be sent via TG to the CO-OPs and the OP. A solution will be found and the situation will be handled by us.
  • Follow PT2M Rules & NS site policy. Don't bring the 5-0 down on us.
Don’t Be That Guy
  • Do Not Godmod. Do Not Metagame.
  • Do Not Run My NPC’s.
  • RSVP Before Inactivity. TG Me or a Co-Op before hand and save us all the hassle. Three days absence will leave your characters open to OP/Co-Op control if plot development is required, and will earn you a strike. Five days plus with no explanation will have the player removed from the RP.
  • Etiquette. Be nice, be respectful, be adult, no one has a right to be rude, and don’t let your having fun stop other people from having fun.
When Writing
  • Scribe Quantity with Quality.
  • Length wise, a good 3-4 sentence paragraph satisfies me.
  • One liners are Verboten! Absolutely, expressively, in every way, shape, and form, forbidden.
  • Show some courtesy and pride. Grammar and post proof reading is expected of all players.

Biography: Frances Graves was born in the mostly rural town of Hell and lived life like one of the boys. Never wanting to be outdone or outmatched; she always was getting into scuffles before, during, and after school with the local schoolyard bullies. Few kids ever went to blows with her again after they learned what was going to happen if they did. More than enough times, she came home with cuts and bruises and had to tell her mom she just liked playing rough during recess. Of course, mothers always knew, but when the problem sorted itself out (even with a little encouraging to the other kid's parents), she went back to the lost cause of trying to bring her daughter up like her.

If just wasn't in the cards. Franky, as she had everyone call her, was too much of a tomboy to do anything but rough-house. Pink wasn't her color, and her father, more than half Cherokee Indian, didn't object too much despite her mother's efforts. Eventually, she learned how to hunt and fish, and soon was taking after her old relatives with her interest in the military. Despite protest from her mother, she decided to not go into college and instead enlisted with the US Army. It was a hard fought battle to get into the infantry, but she felt like she belonged. As part of the 101st, she took after one of her grandfathers. However, it wasn't to last too long, as she went to try out for Ranger School. There was challenges ahead, but she didn't give up.

Franky is now a Corporal with the 75th Ranger Regiment, 1st Ranger Battalion. A skilled warrior with some early tours in Afghanistan. She was selected to be sent in with the UN troops, as the US wasn't too quick to send in Delta, or the Green Berets either. The raiding aspect of the Rangers was a good eye-catcher, and despite being not as skilled as the higher tier operators, they were still Special Forces. They could be trusted more than the average infantryman. She was briefed on the happenings in Sweden, as USSOCOM had activated several units in anticipation of the Russian invasion. Now, the truth needed to be found, and so she volunteered to be sent in. Afterall, what's so bad about going to Sweden?

Personality: Dull like a butter knife, but that's on her outside. Has a sharp tongue and is always quick with a quip when she wants to be. Other than that, very down-to-earth. Still likes to show off a little every now and then.

I noticed that in the applications section, it says "earth character application". It implies to me that there is meant to be more than one (both implied by the plural of "applications," and the distinction of the char app being for earth). I'm guessing not, eh? :p

I'm curious on the whole human thing.

Will we only have UN forces or will we see other stuff, like some kind of corporate superpower who gets involved for their own reasons?

If not I have an idea for a human character, I was just curious that was all.

Only UN?

That sort of takes my idea of a Transnistrian mercenary out.

I'll think about something else.

I may create a none earth character then.

Is there a separate app for them?

Would it be possible for me to play role of main antagonist in this RP? My character would be the leader of a large PMC that although contracted by the UN, has it's own dark goals in this world, and hates all non-human inhabitants...

Of course this faction would be playable and I would kindly invite other players to join me.

I doubt the UN would even think of contracting PMCs to get in there. They'd have to do some really sketchy, shifty shit to get in there, and even moreso since it's going to be on lockdown in Sweden.

Maybe it'd be better to try a fantasy world antagonist.

I do hope you don't plan on making battles as one-sided as in the GATE canon.

Hopefully by instead of sending out entire battalion to do shit, we can just do a small squad from a Forward Operating Base.

You can easily have a full battalion and still keep it balanced. After all, you have magics on the GATE side's side.

Non-Required Information


Past Occupations, Positions, Roles, Ranks and Achievements: Extremely young by dark-elf standards, Raab has few achievements to her name and has only recently (IE ten years ago) ascended to what was her mother’s position as ‘Marchionissa’. As a dark-elf who voluntarily lives outside of the mines and caves most others call home she is slightly avoided by the rest of her kind, and an object of some slight derision among higher nobility. Her sole ‘accomplishment’ would be an indirect role in sending a few orcs to Stockholm, and that can likely not be labeled as an ‘accomplishment’ of any positivity.

Equipment:
  • Default Main Weapon & Specials: Rapier & swordbreaker
  • Default Sidearm: None
  • Additional Munitions: Miscellaneous Magic
  • Uniform Model: N/A
  • Misc. & Other Stuff:

Moral Alignment: 'Chaotic Evil/Neutral' - "Morals? Morals are a luxury that I am not prosperous enough to indulge in. A lord, comfortable in his estate in the Imperial City may be prosperous enough to overlook some of his servant and slave's failings or forgive a slight in order to feel as if they occupy some kind of moral high ground, but I cannot. Just as my Clan inside the warrens could not. The only way to survive in this world is to exploit-exploit-exploit and take whatever advantage is offered when it is offered.

Biography: “I was conceived and born in the darkness of the caves of the Grunwald Mountains where my people have been corralled for hundreds of years by the Humans and tree-lovers.

My parents assumed a frontier-March on the slopes outside those warren-systems six months after I was born to escape a death sentence for being so incompetent as to get caught stealing from the Priest’s largesse to feed me. They were never convinced they had chosen correctly in electing to be banished to the March. I am. Of course, if they were here they’d probably dismiss my surety as something that only matters because of my selfish desire to live.

But what they believed does not matter, does it? They were the ones inept enough to get caught.

My mother’s predecessor in the position of Marchionissa had been judged as redeemed by the priests, and by extension so were his vassals. We began with nothing. That situation grew slightly better as time passed and more vassals were sent to us to serve out sentences for their crimes, but we still had to raid humans and our forest-dwelling ‘cousins’ to acquire what we needed to survive. I believe I began participating in those raids when I was…Ten? Maybe twelve?

My parents wanted me dead, of course, so I kept getting sent. If I died they would be pardoned, and having the humans or the treehuggers kill me was a much better solution than doing it themselves. Humans always do like to pin all their troubles on one person—it undoubtedly makes them feel more accomplished when they manage to catch and punish that person. And the treehuggers are so naïve they’d think killing me would be the end of all the evil that befell them. Lucky me, however, I never got caught.

I did start employing the use of a food-taster after I survived my first dozen raids, however. I believe I went through seven of them. Eight if you count the horse I first used for that purpose when I was too young to realize how valuable such a creature actually was. My parents did love their cliché methods of attempted assassination. Poison was a favorite of theirs for some reason. I never figured that one out. I only ever fought off one assassin, and he was such a bumbling incompetent I half-suspect he volunteered just so he could die.

My parent’s had a reputation as players of the long-game, however. There were plenty of stories among our vassals of their maneuverings in their days before my birth to achieve status and wealth in the warrens. I was at a disadvantage merely because of my lack of experience, and was left with few very good options for dealing with the situation.

So I eliminated the situation entirely and assumed the role of Marchionissa.

Admittedly, not an elegant solution. But the elegant solutions of the warrens are not always well-suited to life on the surface, I have found. And as I have demonstrated to my late parents. Nor do they always serve well when dealing with Humans or the tree-lovers—they can’t be counted on to even recognize a trap when they see one so attempting the double and triple-layered subtlety of the warrens is recipe only for failure and humiliation. I have learned my lessons well in raiding these humans. It would do well for those who still confine themselves inside the Grunwald Mountains to follow my example.

Because if they do not, they will die. By humanity’s hand or, perhaps, by mine. ‘Spare the rod, spoil the child’ as the human saying goes."


Personality: …(see above)

Likes: Open spaces, subtlety,

Dislikes: 'Treehugging' elves, overly-subtle activities,

Theme Song: What do you means it’s not symbolic?

Non-Required Information


Past Occupations, Positions, Roles, Ranks and Achievements:
Masters in Linguistics,
Passed pre-Medical School, but didn't pursue the career.
Served in the Gebirgsschützen Battalion 6 as a communications specialist,
Hand-picked for the UN Peacekeeper Service due to linguistic expertise,
Then once-again selected for the 1st SRC for the same reason.

Equipment:
  • Default Main Weapon & Specials: Sturmgewehr 90 assault rifle
  • Default Sidearm: Pistole 75, a.k.a SIG Sauer P220
  • Additional Munitions: Soldatenmesser 08 knife, HG 85 hand grenade x 2

Carries a radio pack and is fluent in numerous languages, and has a bit of medical expertise to boot. Custom-made UN-Blue garrison cap with a Swiss cross pin. He wears this off-base, and in towns.

Moral Alignment: True Neutral

Biography: Mr. Traugott was born to a Swiss father and an Estonian mother in the city of Zurich, Switzerland. Due to this, he quickly became adept at both languages and from there pursued a path which fortified this bilingualism, scoring average grades in everything but anatomy classes and language classes, in both of which he scored near-perfectly. He quickly passed through his school years and decided to become a doctor. Following this decision, he left for a pre-Medical school. Unfortunately, during this time both of his parents passed away. Because of this, and knowing that he had no-way to now get into Med school and support his young sister, he quickly entered the Swiss military for the benefits it would afford her. During this time, he attended a number of linguistics courses at a prestigious university and obtained a Master's in Linguistics. Due to this, he was sent overseas and inducted into the UN Peacekeepers, where he served for several more years before finally being selected for the SRC.

Personality: Traugott is best described as an "observer," as he consistently speaks only after careful observation and consideration of the situation at hand. Due to this, he can be seen as a quiet, isolated person though he's in fact, rather sociable. He has a strange aura of coldness, only broken by his occassional yawn and the dark circles beneath his eyes. It is widely believed he is an insomniac, and those rumors have not been disproven. It also may be an effect of his crippling coffee addiction.

Likes: (It’s a nice way of boxing in a character, and a good addition for yourself and others.)

Dislikes:( It’s a nice way of boxing in a character, and a good addition for yourself and others.)

Theme Song: (For those aurally minded, or just dramatic like me, a song is always nice. Gives ambiance and adds atmosphere to your character. Will be added to the After World Official Soundtrack for use in Gamermaster IC Posts)
