In the Mad House (CANCELED)

In the Mad House

Palace of the Worthy, WonderTech Industries,
Phantom Street


“You honestly are considering to oppose the Chancellor, Chairman? He is what made your industry great. He can undo it, if you truly believe you can resist his supreme authority. You are a servant of his will, and a servant we all remain.” Voiced, vice chair, Arkham Holmes. “A servant we remain? I think not. It is true, the Chancellor has been a grand help in forging my corporate enterprise. We rule the world by the markets. Governments are dependent and fearful of us, they can’t do anything without risking a depression or unforeseen accident. However, my Industry has been faced with more needless encroachment by the government, undermining my governance and the company’s independence from the state. This is traitorous.” Replied Andrew Mercer, seated at the head of the WonderTech Corporate Board with a stain glass miral dedicated to the dominance over the planet by commercial means. “Traitorous, indeed, Chairman. The Government has become tyrannical it is suffocating us, and we must resist it, at once. Or else, our fruits of labour will mean absolutely nothing, and my investments will be worthless.” Stated a Board member. “Yes. I agree with my friend here. We cannot allow your empire to be chained by the government. It will be destroyed as bureaucrats no nothing of doing proper business.” Stated another board member. “So, we are all going to disobedience the Chancellor’s commandments for the sake of securing our own ends?” Questioned Arkham. “Of course not. We are defying him for a purpose that doesn’t involve money. It involves our right to work as freeman, and as freeman to command our own destiny without state interference.” Andrew stated, reaching for a cup of tea, and taking a sip of it.

“This will hurt our margin in the short term. As we’ll be draining much of our revenue to rebellion, but in the long run. Once the tyrant has been overthrown. We’ll be richer than ever before, and so will those who thought they can be reliant upon the government to earn their keep.” Andrew said, resting his drink in hand.

“Long term prospects? I don’t not see it happening.” Stated the Vice Chair. “Do you have such little faith in the Chairman’s plans? We shall come on top in the end, regardless of what occurs. As you must recognize we can use hostile states to our advantage that seek the Chancellor to be dethrone and tried for his crimes against the alleged free world.” Voiced back a board member, donning the name of Mason Mercer.”There is no need to question Arkham’s loyalties, Mason. He is justifiably concern as this is a major risk to pull off, and the consequences are great. We will all be losing something. If your father doesn’t eat a bullet.” Interjected Andrew. “You have suffered far more than us, he taking your syndicate to be his own. He sees you as no longer worthy to lord over the Black market. Despite you as a patriot proving yourself over and over again. He has become jealous of you, and his envy will be fall of him, and drunk for power by his actions against us.” He added.

Arkham looked at the board council seeing it in their eyes, they were fully on board with the Chairman’s rebellion. He still feared the results from this blatant treason against the government but his voice of protest was futile, and he decided to concede to the will of the Board. “You speak with truth, Chairman. I can not oppose a child who has been wronged by his father. You have my support in topping the hero turned villain.” He said, standing, and making a fist to his heart (being the Wonder salute). “Your sympathy to my pain is appreciated. The Syndicate shall reward you handsomely, when the guns go quiet.” Mason said, smiling. He would lead forward with determination, looking at the Chairman. “When shall we begin?” Mason asked.

“When? We commence at once, the placements have been made, and Wonder Guards are awaiting my signal.” Andrew answered. Showing he already set the stones for the rebellion of the Corporatists. “Hearing that, I guess, this board is dismissed.” Mason chuckled, leaving his seat. “I concur, board dismissed, and may this revolution bring us great wealth.”


Rules, Discord & Applications


In the Mad House is a Civil War Roleplay set in the Rapture Republic, a nation based off Bioshock made into an abomination by me. That initially averted a civil war during the crisis of the 1950s, thanks to Chancellor John Mercer, who convinced Andrew Ryan to abandon his philosophy of an anarcho-capitalist utopia that caused the crisis in the first place. It would be replaced by a system of a centralized, over-arching surveillance, technocratic, and meritocratic state to hopefully prevent another potential civil unrest in the country. Only for that hope to fall to pieces as the government grew corrupt, hypocritical, elitist, and lenient on monitoring entities within its borders that could oppose a threat to social stability and national security despite them being beneficial to its interests such as WonderTech Industries. That started out as a online bookstore to turn into a mega corporation made reality that controls a vast portion of the global economy and holds several governments in its pocket to secure its revenue, and from this, when the state tried to fix its leniency.

It leading to WonderTech Industries chaired by founder and CEO Andrew Mercer to finance a revolution against the government to maintain his free reign status as a corporate juggernaut, followed by numerous anti-government groups coming out of the woodwork after being suppressed and hiding for so long. To seize the opportunity, they all been waiting for, and strike back at the administration that has since lost all of meaning of its original purpose, and change Rapture for the better under a new banner, or remain the same. If the Mercer Administration can overcome the ensuing chaos.


Rules
1) The OP is law.
2) Players are permitted to create their own factions that seek to overthrow the ruling Administration. However, the faction leader must be of Aquarian blood in order to sway the masses to their side.
3) No godmodding or WMDs
3) Keep tech levels below high PMT (so nothing with a space fleet really), but above 1980s. Magic is judged on a case by case basis.
4) If you’re inactive for too long I reserve the right to kick you.
**5) This is a civil war, not the “let’s blow up rapture” war.**

Faction Name: Jed Atkinson's Cosmic Kinship for an Aquarian Synthetic Society
Leader: Jed Atkinson (possibly a well-preserved corpse being dragged around by a cloud of sub-femtomachines)
Ideology: Space Time Capsule Crackpipe Hyperindividualist Posthumanism
Manpower: 800 - 950 mostly researchers and engineers

Reason:
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Surface - Seeing how human and Aquarian nature has shaped the progress of humanity as a whole through history, Artificial Intelligence researcher and neuroscientist Jed Atkinson has concluded that in order for the human race to thrive for eternity, the shells of biological bodies must be shed and replaced by mechanical minds left to drift endlessly in deep space. Through the years, Atkinson and various collaborators have formed a coalition in the final stretch to upload the minds of every Aquarian into a massive supercomputer "time capsule" of Rapture to be left orbiting the far reaches of the Solar System, preserving the citizens in their own digital utopia. If one must feel the sensation of one hundred trillion shots of heroin every second, let it be within an isolated arm of a machine where the consequences of reckless selfishness cannot harm another human mind.

⠀⠀
Actuality- Initiative surveillance operative popping down for [Expletive Redacted]s and giggles. An eternity spent watching empty space can get boring.
Is this faction backed by a foreign government? If you count Initiative "involvement" backing


Country: The Rising Sun Initiative
Leader: No official director through a convoluted chain of corruption and bureaucratic loopholes
Ideology: Synnian "get off my damn galaxy"-ism
Location: Synnian fractal galaxy far enough away to not cause any problems for this rp

Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved? The Atkemrian will support both The People's Front of Rapture and Rapturean National Revolutionary party in attempts to get the two factions to work together and form a democracy with the two as the two main political forces.

Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved? The ASP is getting involved to stop the situation from becoming too outwardly anomlous. This means they won't be supporting any faction but instead slapping anyone who uses anything that may breach normalcy. They will also be keeping a few things for themselves for study and containment

Leader: Harry Williams

Ideology: Authoritarian Democracy

Manpower: 1,000

HQ: A housing complex with a large concentration of supporters

Reason: To the People's Front of Rapture John Mercer's reign has turned Andrew Ryan's dream of a society where the best and brightest could live unburdened by the restrictions of the world's authorities into a worse, degenerate form of what was on the surface with neopotism, elitism, corruption, and hedonism. The only way they see to fix the problem is to end the current government in Rapture in it's entirety along with the entire bloodline of those who rule it

Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved?
The government of Khoronzon will officially be backing the Mercer administration, mainly against WonderTech Industries, and also to a lesser degree against various rebel factions. However, its ulterior motive is to install the RMAS (listed below) as the ruling body of the Rapture Republic, or, failing that, simply ensure that it holds significant political influence in the aftermath of the war. In any case, its interests conflict with those of WonderTech Industries, which de facto puts it on the side of the Mercer administration except in scenarios where it would come into conflict with the RMAS. The conventional forces will mostly be directed against WonderTech with the ostensible purpose of supporting the Mercer administration, while the SARCODINA units will be clandestinely providing direct assistance to the RMAS and AWF against rival factions, be they rebels, Wonder Guards, or the armed forces of Rapture's government, in an attempt to secure the RMAS' future dominance.


Faction Name:
Revolutionary Movement for Aquarian Socialism (as a sub-faction of the Aquarian Worker's Front)
Leaders:
Aloysius Blackburn (Aquarian geneticist, transhumanist, political theorist, and disgraced ex-Senator)
Vladimir Skullus (former security contractor under WonderTech Industries, now a close associate and willing test subject of Blackburn)
Ideology:
Ultranationalist transhumanist authoritarian state socialism, referred to by the faction as Socialism with Aquarian Characteristics or simply Aquarian Socialism
Manpower:
97 - to be added to the Aquarian Worker's Front's manpower upon merging, mostly a mix of engineers, researchers, and dissatisfied political radicals

Reason:
Having lost his spot on the Aquarian Senate fifty years ago for his frequent advocacy of "radical ideologies unbecoming of Rapture", ex-Senator Blackburn has since been spending his days focusing on his scientific endeavours, the only means by which he still retained any legitimacy in the eyes of the public and the state. In the meantime, he hasn't given up on his political views - an extreme nationalist and Aquarian supremacist, he has long believed that private corporations were fundamentally opposed to the common interests of Rapture's people, that the economy must belong to the nation in its totality, and that the Aquarian race must become united and empowered through Socialism with Aquarian Characteristics to truly project its will over the world of the surface. Feeling vindicated by the outbreak of hostilities between WonderTech Industries and the state of Rapture, he decided to take the opportunity to form his own faction in the conflict, with the end goal of purging Rapture of self-interested private entities and bringing about national rebirth through class struggle. Though his reputation earned him little support, the Aquarian Worker's Front soon judged him to be useful to their cause, and he and his followers now work alongside them.

Is this faction backed by a foreign government?
Yes. The AWF as a whole will be backed by the Global Defence Initiative and Intelligence Task Force of the Neo-United Nations, which means that the RMAS will be receiving its support by extension. The RMAS itself will also be given a limited degree of Khoronzonite backing (viz. above) - this technically means that the AWF at large will be backed by Khoronzon, but this support will mainly be concentrated around the RMAS sub-faction.

Total: 51

Most Abwehr riflemen are capable of using a form of "magic" that essentially boils down to 'using the collective consciousness of everything sapient to beat the shit out of the physical world until it shits itself and blows up'. In short, essentially just the same role as a rifle grenade, but with far less accuracy. Your average rifleman can fire around four or five or so of these before it starts becoming dangerous to continue to do so.
By dangerous, I mean something in the range of "Week-long coma" to "Literally turns into a giant worm that will vore entire cities and normally requires an artillery barrage and a few airstrikes to put down".
For this reason, most Abwehr combat mages will greatly prefer using firearms, and this RP might even go by without me having to use it. I just need to have it exist as context to the Abwehr's existence and history, in particular the rationale for it's collaboration with Clear Sky.


Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved?
No specific factional involvement for now. However, a deep and bitter rivalry exists between the ASP and the Abwehr and Clear Sky, and the Combat Group will immediately engage ASP personnel upon sighting. In fact, the primary purpose of involvement is investigating rumors of ASP involvement, and, if true, disrupting ASP operations and if possible destroying ASP presence outright.

Vympel Group's secondary mission is to act as a neutral observer to the war, and to provide medical aid for injured civilians, as well as temporary shelter for refugees.

Strength & Weaknesses: As far as Montgomery's strengths go, he is highly convincing in voice and mannerisms and generally exhibits trust through a straightforward, matter-of-fact personality. He is also charismatic to a certain extent, and tends to be well spoken. Nevertheless, Beau is often depressed and faces personal dissatisfaction. He can be blunt, and somewhat bland, which can turn certain people away, while his workload leaves him with consistently lingering stress.
Are they likely to join a faction or remain independent? Montgomery will likely remain independent.

"Somewhere far away, in the distant dunes that rest silhouetted far beyond the ethereal horizons of good and evil, Convallaria has emerged as a technocratic dreamscape of shimmering ambitions and passionate indulgence. A pioneering realm of unbridled industrial sprawl and paranoid black-market underworlds centered around three things: champagne, wealth, and vigorous McCarthyism..."

Country: Bloodshade


Leader: Countess Ambrosia von Carstein


Ideology: Secular representative social democracy with a dash of neocolonialist and nationalistic tendencies


Location: Skadi star system, nowhere near within range of the Rapture Republic to cause any issues


ORBAT: (Subject to change but nothing too deviant from this setup)
  • x1 Merwyrm-class C21 Foundry spacecraft
  • 700 infantrymen
  • 16 members of the Winterheart Special Forces Unit


Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved?

While Bloodshade is on neutral terms and wishes to act as a mediator, favoring the status quo of Mercer's rule for the sake of order, there are ulterior motives to Bloodshade's involvement as it attempts to project its power and support favorable groups.

Modified my ORBAT to actually be an ORBAT.
My canon is currently in a state of constant flux. Please do not take anything that I say as set in stone.
A 13 civilization, according to this index.

A traumatized MT-PMT constitutional monarchy consisting of a personal union of Prussia and Poland. A land of rampant gun ownership, Cold-war equipment, rabid hatred of Germans, militias with enough artillery to turn an armored division into a badly-shaken battalion of light infantry, and terrified American troops counting down the days until they rotate back home.

Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved? The Bureaucracy will, as per usual, remain neutral until it can ascertain what the hell is actually going on. Once that's been dealt with, they'll likely side with whatever the seemingly-winning side may be, in a bid to end the conflict as quickly as possible. Or not. We'll just have to see.

Dictator-backed dedication to absolute civil freedoms, ultrabureaucratic pseudo-socialism and heavily-armed neutrality.
Fueled by PMT/FanT dieselpunk schizotech, eldritch red tape and snazzy neo-cold war aesthetics on a broken continent.

Country: The Federation of Democratic Exodian Territories
Leader: Governor, Diego Rodriguez
Ideology: Laissez-faire capitalist presidential democracy with direct-democratic characteristics. Militant, internationalist and right-wing libertarian internally.
Location: Gulf of Mexico (keep in mind our Gulf is much larger, a bit closer to the size of the Mediterranean with easier access to the Caribbean, logically allowing for a sizeable archipelago to exist there)
ORBAT:
Peacekeeper's Task Force, Surface Flotilla
>2x Spirit-class amphibious assault ships (1x attack and multirole fighter complement, 1x AWACs/EW and multirole fighter complement)
>2x Nobility-class guided missile destroyers
>4x Chastinglow-class heavy corvettes
>2x Prospector-class heavy replenishment oilers/fast combat support ships
>2x Aerial Gear ANISOPTERA VTOL aerial attack vessels/gunships (1 crew, attached to surface vessels)

Peacekeeper's Task Force, Submersible Flotilla

>10x VAM-66 midget submarines/"narco-submarines" (small transport submarine to ferry troops)

Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved? We'll be backing any number of anti-communist rebel factions (namely the Aquarian National Revolutionary Party and the People's , and we're against WonderTech for economic reasons. Rapture has been a thorn in our side militarily and for our international and trade relations, pushing Exodia to the point of liking them to not exist.

Country: Exodian Army Biological Security Division
Leader: General, Avery Reissen
Ideology: Universal-isolationist and anti-anomaly. Created to be mankind's defenders against threats they cannot comprehend. Corporate-funded paramilitary anomalous-control and containment organization under the control of the Exodian Senate.
Location: Hub and largest base is on an island in the Exodian archipelago situated in a closed city, but our corporate fronts and hidden stations are all over the world, from St. Petersburg (the Russian one, not the Floridian one) to Hawai'i.
ORBAT:


Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved? We're here to prevent others from other universes attempting to influence this world to their ways, by extreme force if need be, and patrolling the area constantly to make sure they don't get through. We'll be investigating anomalous occurrences within Rapture as well, and unless the ASP returns the operative they kidnapped from us with a formal apology then they're going to get shot at like the rest of them, and even if they do then we will won't hesitate to engage if they're blocking an objective.


Faction Name: Aquarian National Revolutionary Party
Leader: James Sears
Ideology: Right-libertarianism and liberal democracy; revolutionary nationalism, populism, and civic nationalism, minarchism, anti-elitism, and decentralization. Calls for the destruction of the WonderTech monopoly and the chance for localized capitalist competition to occur.
Manpower: 1,000
Reason: Fed up with the WonderTech monopoly and the world's rightfully-deserved hatred of their degenerate statist government and disgusted by the stifling of true competition, the National Revolutionaries seek to tear down the system that betrayed them with their legion of middle- and lower-class civilian militiamen and boogaloo boys, supported by rising companies struggling against the state-owned WonderTech barrier.
Is this faction backed by a foreign government? Exodia and Atkemri.

An early-PMT island-archipelago nation in the Gulf of Mexico with right-libertarian and neoconservative views. Born on memes and guns by the Brits and Spanish but built for something deeper.

Postby Arkeyana » Thu Jul 09, 2020 4:22 pm

Country: The Federation of Arkeyana
Leader: Artificial Superintelligence "Utopia"
Ideology: Deep-Net ASI-Monitored Anarcho-Pan-Ideology
Location: Extraversal Local Group
ORBAT: 1x Outside Box Solutions Operative (Designation: "Masque"), 1x Mark IX-S Warmind, Phased within Jupiter's Atmosphere, 1x Centipede-class ARGUS Megafreighter, lurking in the Kuiper Belt
Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved?
The Outside-Box Solutions Committee is aiming to reduce the likelihood of Rapture creating difficulties in the future, by isolating it from the local planetary geopolitics through creation and backing of a Rebel Faction aiming to force Rapture back below the waves through piracy. This faction will be provided with Lo-Tech ARGUS Weaponry, which will be detailed in the Discord.

Faction Name: The Aquarian Isolationism Movement
Leader: Robin Nero/Masque, a "Resurrected" Transhumanist Aquarian
Ideology: Militiant Isolationism
Manpower: Approx 876, 1x Hijacked Aquarian Cargo Submarine
Reason:
Officially, the AIM's, well, aim is to restore Andrew Ryan's vision of an isolated Utopia, free of the corrupting influence of the surface world. They believe that the upper echelons of society have been filled with greed and other corrupting influences through trade with the surface, and seek to, through large-scale piracy, cause Rapture to focus inward rather than on fruitless economic pursuits.

Unofficially, the AIM is puppeteered by Masque, a well-known Outside Box Solutions Committee Operative sent in order to cause Rapture to isolate itself from global geopolitics, preventing what the BBICs see as "Future Complications" with the Federation's Extraversal affairs.
Is this faction backed by a foreign government?
Yes. Specifically, the Federation of Arkeyana and a contract with ARGUS to be supplied with Lo-Tech Weaponry.

Country: The Wandering City & Guild of Eisenstern
Leader: Mayor Páidí Haren (de facto), the Council of Seven (de jure, ultimate authority if the need arises)
Ideology: N/A (no singular ideological drive - nominally, hardline-neutral mercantilism)
Location: Variable
ORBAT: N/A (no independent force deployment, no initial force deployment of any kind - while armed personnel and assets may be dispatched later, this will be dependent on other participants)
Will your government be backing the Administration or one of the presented rebel factions? What is your reason for getting involved? No single faction will be backed - the Guild will offer its services to all, as per usual. Both factions and individual characters may come to them for all manner of goods and agreements, and certain individuals or groups may be actively sought out.
‖ NS STATS ARE NOT USED, BECAUSE THEY WOULDN'T EVEN MAKE ANY SENSE ‖

tl;dr: A mercantile city state, housed in a dimension-hopping tower that's bigger on the inside.
Ruled by a meritocratic adventurers' council (in theory) and a democratically-elected municipal body (in practice).
Fields an unending golem army and a superhuman warrior guild to make up for its small size.
Very, very unlikely to ever be rated on any sort of index, due to the vast variations in tech, magic and influence that define it as a nation.
