Through Flanders, Portugal and Spain (OOC/Open)

Postby Purusapura » Fri Jan 15, 2021 3:41 pm

Here's forty shillings on the drum
For those who volunteer to come,
To 'list and fight the foe today
Over the Hills and far away

Over the hills and over the main
Through Flanders, Portugal and Spain
King George commands and we obey
Over the hills and far away
When duty calls me I must go
To stand and face another foe
But part of me will always stray
Over the hills and far away

If I should fall to rise no more
As many comrades did before
Then ask the fifes and drums to play
Over the hills and far away

Then fall in lads behind the drum
With colours blazing like the sun
Along the road to come what may
Over the hills and far away


March 15th, 1809.


Napoleon Bonaparte is master of Europe.
His brother Joseph sits on the throne of the Spanish kingdom.

Sir Arthur Wellesley, soon to be Lord Wellington.
The new British commander has taken the Portuguese city of Porto (in the second battle of Douro/Porto) from the French forces under the command of Marshal Jean Soult the first duke of Dalmatia.
Now Sir Arthur Wellesley rests his forces before moving into Spain and Portugal



This RP is set just after the capturing of Porto by Sir Arthur Wellesley's forces, British forces have established a hold out and will March through Portugal then onto Spain then to France and finally bring down the emperor of the French: Napoleon Bonaparte

1 IRL day = 1 RP week
I expect people to RP what happened in that week

Image
    1. This isn't a nation RP, you are an individual soldier in the service of King George
    2. There will be a limited number of ranks available
    3. Basic stuff, be polite, be realistic
    4. NO ONE LINERS!
    5. Put "Wellesley" in the notes section of your application
    6. Another basic thing but I am the authority, and any co-ops I recruit are extensions of that
    7. You are not John Wick… characters can die from even one musket ball and probably will not continue fighting if he gets sliced by a sword
    9. One RP per day
Image
1. Most soldiers on both sides were in their 20s
2. Musician? Sharpshooter? Sapper
3. I do ask for some depth in your character, how is he an individual? What makes your character unique?
4. Losing the King's colours means that you are going to be punished severely
5. 3 shots a minute, maybe 4 on rare occasions
6. We are gonna be part of one platoon of light infantry, there will be 26 to 55 soldiers which are a part of the 95th rifle regiment of light infantry
7. There may not be 26 RPers so the rest of the troops will be RPed by the OP as NPCs
8. The OP will RP French, British, Portuguese, Spanish heck even Prussian soldiers, officers and civilians
9. Equipment you say? Well know that all light infantry had green jackets close-fitting pantaloons rather than breeches, black facings and black belts rather than white, a green plume on your stovepipe shakoes and baker rifles
10. Use this https://www.napoleonguide.com/ukwages.htm
https://www.napoleon-series.org/researc ... y1800.html

0/1 First Lieutenant
0/1 Staff sergeant (second in command)
0/24 corporals, lance corporals and privates

Is a lance corporal better than a corporal?

A lance corporal is one rank below a corporal, you can use a corporal's pay if you want to create a lance corporal but in my opinion an experienced lance corporal will probably be a corporal or a sergeant

Should I be corporal or sargent? Also what do you mean by wealth?

Make whatever character you want, I haven't made a character so the commanding officer position is open! As for wealth you can RP several things with your money such as better uniforms, clothes, food, women for reasons and a whole lot more, if our unit is out of supplies and there is a farm nearby then we have to go down to that farm and buy some supplies, if the commanding officer is broke then he and the sergeant should lend some money.
Note: if the commanding officer was young for a lieutenant then it's likely that he's a nobleman

So he's insane
And there is a possibility that he is so insane that he thinks he is related to Benedict Arnold
