The Lucifer Effect: How Good People Turn Evil (MT/KY/OOC)

Postby Palmyrion » Wed Aug 10, 2022 2:44 am

Palmyrion Presents...

A deep dive into how good people turn evil...


THE LUCIFER EFFECT

Or, how good people turn evil.


This is not me locked up with you...you are locked up with me.

In 1971, Stanford University professor Philip Zimbardo launched an experiment now known today as the Stanford Prison Experiment. 24 subjects, all without criminal backgrounds, psychological impairments, or medical problems, were randomly assigned as "prison guards" and "prisoners" for a one-week experiment. It quickly went awry, as the prison guards started mistreating the prisoners; on the sixth day, the experiment was stopped.

Eleven years later in 1982, the Ancorians invaded the Royal Commonwealth, sacking the fertile lands of the Federal Republic of Cagayan until they were repulsed and driven back to whence they came from in 1986. Men, women, and children were all brutalized by the Ancorian horde, stopped only in their southward advance by the Sierra Madre Mountain Range, the city of Tuguegarao at the delta of the Cagayan River, and by the countless brave Palmyrians who laid their lives in defence of the Royal Commonwealth. The Cagayan Valley region, once the bustling pinnacle of the marriage of agriculture and industry and Palmyrion's prided and honoured breadbasket, never fully recovered, the area still plagued by Buddhist, Catholic, and Communist rebels.

It is now the year 2022. The geopolitical situation looks dire, with masses of troops at both sides of the Palmyro-Ancorian border. The Royal Commonwealth faces northeast in anticipation of an Ancorian invasion, as they clear the area of Buddhist insurgents and Communist rebels. Stability in the region is now teetering at the edge of a precipice, and it seems there is no peaceful way to defuse the situation.

Faced with financial problems about funding her stay in medical school, a young woman was left with no choice but to join the military in perhaps the least violent role she could possibly serve in: as a combat medic. Two years on in her service, would she learn to reconsider her obstinate abhorrence to violence? How would she swallow the harsh reality that sometimes protecting a life can be at the expense of another? Last but not the least, would she soon embrace - and relish - violence?


Greetings, NS, it is I, Palmyrion, bringing you a roleplay that features a deep dive into one of humanity's biggest questions about moral attitudes: how do good people turn evil?

As per the intention of this RP, it would revolve significantly around character roleplays, but at the same time would also feature your classic roleplaying of troop movements. Your character RPs would revolve around the perspectives of your individual characters, but don't forget: at the end of the day, this is still a military RP, so please roleplay the movement of military assets such as divisions, brigades, what have you.

Here's the application for the RP. This application is mostly for archiving and tracking purposes.

What is your state or non-state actor doing here?
Over a decade ago, the State Directorate of Internal Affairs(GUVD) put into operation a plan to arm anti-government elements in Palmyrion in the event that the country posed a threat to the United Soviet States of Svadyetsk. Years after the operation's start, Major Vladimir Ivanovsky of the GUVD has become dissatisfied with the fact that the operation which he has dedicated years of his life continues merely to build up the clandestine arms stockpiles across Palmyrion, stockpiles which he believes the Soviet government will never actually put into rebel hands. So Ivanovsky will take matters into his own hands and do it himself.

And, of course, the Soviet government will try to stop him.

Name of RPer:
Palmyrion (state actor)

A rough description of your in-theater assets (ORBAT optional but recommended)
A mountain infantry division at the pass itself, plus two infantry divisions and two mechanized divisions ready to hold Cagayan Valley should the pass be breached. The Cordilleran Mountain Infantry Corps, comprised of three elite mountain infantry divisions, is situated in the nearby Cordilleran Federal Republic to the west. Army air defence assets include a strategic air defence regiment, alongside organic air defence assets situated in manoeuvre divisions. Air force assets in northern Palmyrion include eight wings of fighters, two strategic support wings, eight hunter-killer wings, and two spectrum warfare wings.

What is your state or non-state actor doing here?
I'm 1/2 of the equation that is Palmyro-Ancorian border conflict. Palmyrion is shifting to a "sustainable war" doctrine against Ancor, citing the need to keep Ancor actively contained while minimizing the risk of collateral damage.

Name of RPer: New Aeyariss
Non-Sate Actor - Dhoy People's Liberation Army - South

A rough description of your in-theater assets (ORBAT optional but recommended)
The entire strength of DPLA - S is about 5 000 men, split into 5 regiments, each attached to a specific area of operation. The regiments run their own supply and training.


What is your state or non-state actor doing here?: Fighting for Dhoy People's Independence from both Ancor and Palmyrion.

DPLA-S is led by Lt. Gen. Chaiyan Serk, a Ancorian-born man who wishes for independence of his people. DPLA - S is also famed for it's opposition against drug trade, having a custom of setting drug dealers on fire.

DPLA itself was found by Gen. Linn Zeyar in 1999, in wake of Ancorian government's cancellation of Dhoy autonomy and policy of "all Dai are one and Buddhist", as a response to forceful conversion of Dhoy people from Christianity to Buddhism. It was during that war that Serk, a former Ancorian army major, gained his fame as a man of both large moral compass and extremely skilled commander.

In 2003, the organisation was pushed out of Ancor, but managed to save itself by moving to rugged border areas. Increased involvement in Drug trade led to conflict with Palmyri government, as well as an internal split. In 2008, Gen. Serk refused to accepted Zeyar's command. DPLA then split into "Southern" and "Northern" factions. Guerilla war against the Palmyri state and inter-fraction infighting have been a norm ever since.
