Into the Abyss [OOC Thread, Planning]

28-01-2009, 02:09

This RP will take place in the region known as Karain. For a long time this region has been a colony region for the nations of Haven. Anyhow, a long time ago, Kampfers used to have a colony in Karain, known as Kampferian East Karain. After around 80 years of Kampferian subjugation, the natives of KEC decided to rebel. Their war for independance was short, with brutal battles at every turn. Kampfers realized that the war was not worth it, and eventually withdrew it's troops, leading to the rise of Angrazo as a nation.

The RP

This RP will be set in 1912, when Angrazo won it's independance. As such, all weapons must be time appropriate (it ought to be easy, go look up the weapons in use just before WW1). I will need one person to RP the rebels, and then a limited number of other people who want to try and intervene, either on my side or on the side of the rebels, but the sides need to roughly even out. All deployments should be posted in this thread and must be reasonable (take note of what I deploy). I will close the thread to entrants after I feel we have enough people, although if one person drops out I may offer to let someone else join in. As for geography, expect it to be mainly like Somalia, mainly composed of plateaus, plains, and highlands. The only major Kampferian settlements dot the coast, and the inland is largely "untamed wilderness".

Some Notes
This RP will in all likliehood not be quickly progressing. That should give everyone involved a little more time to work on the quality of their posts, but the main cause is because I will be doing this on my limited time at college. As such there will be no need for incessant bumping of the IC or OOC thread. Handle any concerns you have over the content of someone's post here. I will start the IC thread when I have the time after I feel we have a good contingent of people. I do reserve the right to bar people from participating in this RP because of my prior interactions with them or things I have noticed about them, so please only apply if you are serious about writing good quality posts.

for reference, I'll be sending roughly 40,000 troops to the conflict, about 20,000 of which are already stationed there.

Would you mind if I RP the rebels?
29-01-2009, 01:36
Go for it.
29-01-2009, 01:37
Alright, count me as the rebels then.

I'll send a few thousand troops and an auxiliary cruiser or two for repressing rebellion.
