A New Age- A Turn of the Century Roleplay( SIGNUP THREAD)

Postby Sword Island » Thu Apr 08, 2021 4:04 am

The year is 1899, and the dawn of the 20th century is fast approaching, along with the sounds of the drums of war. Sword Island, a minor power in all respects, has just picked an unwinnable fight with its much more influential neighbor, the great empire of China, who had been the kingmakers of Asia and Oceania for time immemorial. The dispute is trivial, but the war is expected to cost millions their lives. One question remains: how will your nation react to this sudden turn of events in the Pacific? Who's side will you stand on, or will you sit on the sidelines and watch the chaos unfold? The choice is yours as we enter a New Age of globalization, technology, and warfare

1 first aid kit
one bottle insect repellent.

sidearm: c/96 Mauser. Ten shot 7.63x25mm soft nose ammunition. Stripper clip. All use and carry.
Are Grenades a thing yet?
Rifle: Mauser 1897. This uses a straight pull Mannlicher bolt on a Mauser action and stock. Uses a 5 round stripper clip. 6.5x55mm rimless. 20 inch barrel. Hooded front ramp sight. gripping groove.
Squad leaders get a .20 gauge lever action sawed off shotgun. 7 shots of 3 inch #4 buckshot brass shells. Additionally two c/96 pistols are carried.

Artillery: Hale Rocket Launcher.
Machinegun: Colt M1895 in 6.5x55mm rimless.
These are deployed with one machinegun on each side of each rocket launcher. Stone death on enemies.

Special weapon: Trained Doberman Pinscher dog with handler. They are issued an experimental c/96 carbine with a 20 round detachable box magazine. Most carry two Mauser pistols as back up. The Dobermans wear white studded leather armor. The Comanches despise them because traditional native American weaponry are totally ineffective against this same armor. Since dog handlers are tend towards Nazis SS-level fanaticism in defending both their dogs and fellow soldiers, and they are exceptionally feared by the Comanches, too.

Local Militias:
Furnish own clothing and supplies
1 Bowie knife with steel knuckle handle and 14 inch blade.
1 Marlin 1894 .44-40 WCF loop lever action smokeless powder 10 shot rifle.
1 1878 Colt .44-40 WCF smokeless powder double action revolver. Many also buy c/96 and Schwarlose 1898 pistols, too.

Artillery: Hale rocket launcher.
Rapid fire gun: Hotchkiss 37mm cannon with canister shot.

SPECIAL WEAPON TO BOTH: Ford War Truck. This is a kerosene-fueled miniature pick up truck with a Colt M1895 Potato digger mounted machinegun in its bed. Experiments are ongoing with mounting these on tracked vehicles.

Regular Army:
Aged 16-65
Volunteer: Both
Both genders:
See Landsturm for uniforms and equipment.
Spandau 1896
6.5x55mm water-cooled recoil operated[static]
fully automatic.

37mm Maxim 1889 Pom Pom automatic cannon.
75mm breechloading 1897.

The Protection Force: Mounted Landsturm but with 1895 Winchester carbine in 6.5x55mm instead of a Mauser.
The Amazons. Armored female hoplites whose modern weapons are two Mauser c/96 pistols.
Melee weapon: Sword. Xiphos handle with straight thirty inch Gladius double edged blade.
dagger: The above but with a 18 inch double edged blade.

Uniform: Steel open visor helmet with Orange dyed horse hair crest.
Muscle steel cuirass
pleated leather kilt with metal studs
Large round circular steel shield
Clydesdale war horse.

Psychological factor; Many Christian civilians are inspired by their presence to fight to the bitter end against enemies. Paradoxically, international outrage has occurred when civilians so frenzied have outright massacred entire Comanche tribes in battle.

Trenakan National News, Wednesday, May 12th BREAKING NEWS: An amendment to the Trenakan Constitution is proposed in the Reprasentantenhäus, proposing that presidential elections in the future use ranked-choice voting, instead of first past the post voting. It is thought to have bipartisan support, with a majority of Trenakans from all parties supporting it. However, President Schmidt has said that he opposes ranked-choice voting, which could sway enough legislators against voting for it to halt the proposal from reaching a 2/3 majority.
