The Hunt for the Sleeping Giant [OOC][MT/PMT][CLOSED]

Welcome to The Hunt for the Sleeping Giant

It had been 2 weeks from the day that the Masada, an oil tanker out from the UAE, had disappeared. The ship was last sighted around the Al Shaheen oilfield, before it lost contact with anyone, on or off shore. All that was known is that oddly, it was sailing away from the oilfield, before it even began to acquire any of the black gold it was made to carry. For those two weeks, Kafair scoured the seas, hunting for the tanker. Every available resource was spent on hunting down the ship, one of the largest on earth (comparable to the Seawise Giant). The crew aboard was a good hundred men larger then usual, and they were armed.

It was clear Kafair was desperate for the cargo it was carrying. Rumors were abound of a pathogen, a superweapon of some kind. This kind of talk was quickly silenced. The last known location by transponder of the ship was a absolute mess. It read that is was in the middle of the Arctic, then next to the British Isles, then near China, and then around California, before finally settling within the Pacific Ocean. All thats known beyond that are the coordinates 60 South, 135 West. After that, theres nothing.

The Government was now Desperate. In what they are calling Operation Sleeping Giant, they were now calling for any available world governments to try and lend aid to reclaim and find the ship. Sightings of more ships, small skiffs and Corvettes, swarming it, exchanging gunfire, were now circulating the web. A single red machete was painted on each, according to eyewitness reports. The government was calling it a Pirate operation, blaming the Blood Blade Syndicate and The Cardinal Fleet, trying to keep attention off of the Masada's cargo. There was no manifest or list of that cargo available.

So this is the call. All world governments, lend your aid! From companies, armies, special forces, or even private workers, all are welcome in this hunt. But you hunt no normal beast. No, you hunt...

A Sleeping Giant





Welcome friends! This is my first proper RP as an OP, and I am pleased to introduce you all to The Hunt for the Sleeping Giant! This RP is simple enough, with two main objectives, those being to Find the Masada, and to Bring it Home. You have 4 groups you can work with to try and each that goal though. Your options are the...


Image
The Kafairian Government
The Government is willing to pay a pretty penny to get back the ship. Of course, they wont tell you what the ship is carrying. Ally the government, and have the support of any teams of Kafairian special forces or sailors you find, but risk getting nothing in return, or, yet worse, not finding out what the cargo is.
Easily the most organized of the groups at the start, they do run the risk of withholding information, and keeping out of nation operatives out of the loop.


Image
The Blood Blade Syndicate
A brutal criminal organization with roots in Sudan, and with bases across the world. A household name in the underworld. They will pay well for anyone helping them defend their prize, and if you help them, you might find yourself with some new contacts in the shadowy corners of the world by the times end.
Not greatly organized with small scattered factions within those who took the ship. They are ruthless, and any attempt to double-cross them, real of not, will be met with the upmost brutality. They do take slaves, and commonly use human shields. If you want some powerful scumbags as allies, this is your team.


Image
The Cardinal Fleet
A anarchist rebel force. This group of ships and sailors broke away from the Royal Navy 8 years ago, and had fled to the high seas, running a rebel operation there to try and overthrow the monarchy. They live off raiding, and see this as their chance to finally get a base of operations on the seas.
The second best in organization, the anarchists have the military training of Kafair at their backs, and a small fleet of corvettes and frigates. Help them, and they might just join your nation's navy, if you accept them, that is...


Image
No One
Nothing is stopping you from trying to claim the ship for your own. Fight off the enemies, and you might come out of it with Kafairian secrets, a new ships, and a nice deal for the ship back if you are lucky.
As organized as you want!


RULES
  • Keep it Civil.
  • No Godmodding, Powerplaying, Metagaming, or any of that.
  • OOC in the OOC thread and vice versa, if you please.
  • No Missile or Superweapon attacks. The ship should stay (mostly) intact.
  • Im the OP. My word is law 'round these parts.
  • Please write the words "Black Gold" in the area where I ask if you read the rules.
  • Fill out a form to join. Its there for a reason you know.
  • No armies. Anything over 100 men is a big no no.
  • Keep it realistic(ish). PMT doesnt mean laser guns and magic bullets.

This wont be a super slow paced RP. Expect me to be posting one or twice a week on average (dont hold me responsible if I just fall off the earth for a week).

Im just trying to keep things orderly enough for this first time. Most of the rules are just like general ways to not ruin the RP, but I get what you mean, so...

Why are you getting involved in the Hunt?: The State Security Department is on the look for any technology or resource that may give the Bulgar Rouge and their military arm - the National People's Liberation Army (NPLA) - an edge in geopolitics. This seems like a good opportunity.
Who are you helping in the Hunt? (Kafair, Syndicate, etc): Nobody, State Security will attempt to take over the ship.
Did you read the rules?: Yes, and btw we're not pursuing any kind of black gold, we're all-electric :p

That'd be interesting. ICly Somalia is something of a satellite state of ours, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out!

I think so, so long as you keep it reasonable in terms of what they deploy. Dont go throwing battleships and carriers at the ship, and remember the manpower, but you can certainly let them spend lots of cash on hunting it down, and reaching the coordinates that are known currently.

Oh yah, go ahead. You are all allowed to make your first posts, But make sure your not reaching the ship in one post. Should take 2-3 to find it, then another to reach it unless something changes.

NATION NAME: People's Republic of Zhouran
TECH LEVEL (MT OR PMT): NS-MT
RP EXPERIENCE (1 TO 10, AS BEST YOU CAN): Idk, been in various war RPs (some short examples: 1, 2, 3) and have provided military advise in the past as well, ironically less of a storyteller and more of the type that would write technical manuals instead
Why are you getting involved in the Hunt?: Because the ZPA Navy conducts routine patrols across the Pacific while Ministry of National Security would of already detected signals from the ship via SIGINT, thus the curiosity of a silent freighter sailing the Pacific randomly would of raised eyebrows by now
Who are you helping in the Hunt? (Kafair, Syndicate, etc): Kafairian government, though MNS will end up covertly investigating the inside of the ship and confiscation of key materials so information leak is bound to happen
Did you read the rules?: yeah

RP EXPERIENCE (1 TO 10, AS BEST YOU CAN): 7
Why are you getting involved in the Hunt?: The Thieves' Brotherhood, Svadyetsk's organised crime syndicate, have been contracted by the State Directorate of Internal Affairs(GUVD) to retrieve the ship. However, they might just sell it to the highest bidder. Also, people might need guns. They happen to have lots of guns, for a price.
Who are you helping in the Hunt? (Kafair, Syndicate, etc): No one/ the highest bidder.
Did you read the rules?: errrr.... coal? oil? which one do you want?
How many men are you spending? Novorossiya(Panamax class bulk carrier modified for smuggling, 28 crew with 30 'shipboard security specialists'), a hired yacht (30 Brotherhood members). Total 88 men. The Novorossiya is already in the area on a smuggling run and will be redirected. The yacht will be contracted in at least the second post.

I really shouldn't be doing this...

NATION NAME: The People's Federation of South Reinkalistan
TECH LEVEL (MT OR PMT): PMT
RP EXPERIENCE (1 TO 10, AS BEST YOU CAN): 6
Why are you getting involved in the Hunt?: Kafair is directly opposed to the interests of the People's Federation; any opportunity to undermine them will be welcomed greatly, even if it means siding with anarchists.
Who are you helping in the Hunt? (Kafair, Syndicate, etc): The Cardinal Fleet
Did you read the rules?: Yes.
How many men are you spending? This is a rather discrete operation... the TSD Revolution, a small surface vessel, will be dispatched. Its crew is roughly 30, plus five "Bluecoat" special forces.

Why are you getting involved in the Hunt?: The plot in itself is quite interesting furthermore it gives me the opportunity to engage more so in international Politics and build stronger ties.
Who are you helping in the Hunt? (Kafair, Syndicate, etc): Syndicate
Did you read the rules?: Yes
How many men are you spending? As of now, I am not sending any men but rather providing Financial and Logistical Support.


DENIED, please reread the rules.

RP EXPERIENCE (1 TO 10, AS BEST YOU CAN): Idk, been in various war RPs (some short examples: 1, 2, 3) and have provided military advise in the past as well, ironically less of a storyteller and more of the type that would write technical manuals instead
Why are you getting involved in the Hunt?: Because the ZPA Navy conducts routine patrols across the Pacific while Ministry of National Security would of already detected signals from the ship via SIGINT, thus the curiosity of a silent freighter sailing the Pacific randomly would of raised eyebrows by now
Who are you helping in the Hunt? (Kafair, Syndicate, etc): Kafairian government, though MNS will end up covertly investigating the inside of the ship and confiscation of key materials so information leak is bound to happen
Did you read the rules?: yeah

DENIED, please reread the rules, and that is far too many men. 100 is the max for this thing, and I already stated heavy weapons are no good here. Small teams of operatives, with maybe some light naval support should be the structure most of you follow, bar some special units of nations.

If accepted, you many now post. Be aware that your men will be outnumbered by the Cardinals and Blades, but they do no possess the skills to rival well trained troops in head on combat. Use this to your advantage, with non-linar attack plans and tactics to counter their numbers and knowledge of the ship.
