King Will Thompson II is alive!

14-09-2003, 22:40
OOC: There is alot of back story behind this. This thread is just to separate this situation from others.

Two Scottan guards struggled to carry a long heavy object in a black plastic bag. It fell limp in the centre and jostled around a bit and dripped slightly at the ends.

"Who's this one?" the first guard asked nodding towards the object.

"Didn't you watch the TV. Thats the guy Joseph shot." the second man responded.

The first guard stopped dead in his tracks and stared at the bag almost stuttering, "You mean...this is King Will?"

"Hell no!" the second Guard said. "I picked this one out myself. The doctors did a great job with his face though."

"So Will is alive?" the first guard asked adamantly.

The Second guard laughed and said, "I am the captain of the Joseph's personal Guard and you are a private. If I told you, I'd have to kill you. If anyone hears about this, its your head that will roll next. They rocked the bag back and forth to get momentum and then finally threw it into a pit.

"Let there be light!" the second guard said, flicking a match into the gasoline soaked pitt filled with several other such bags. The pyre of flame tickled the sky as the hideous stench of burnt flesh soaked the air.

Joseph slammed on the door of Cell 18B in the Centreville Prison, the largest, most secure Prison in Scotta. It was opened up without hesitation to reveal a sleeping man who appeared in his 50s but was well known to be in his 70's. "Will." Joseph said calmly. "Get up."

The man lieing on the pitiful cott stirred and sat upright. He was in rags. He was living in filth. But still, there was this unmistakable Regal, powerful air about him. There was a certain dignity about him that commanded obedience and a softness in his eyes and his smile that put all at ease. "Yes, Joseph." Will said, fully awake, "Have you another puzzle for me to solve?"

"Yes." Joseph replied. "How could I let my brother's mind waste away. It is my duty as your brother to keep your mind up."

"You apparantly have no problem with letting my body waste away in a dark prison. You have no problem with enslaving my people, and stealing from me through deceit and trickery what was rightly mine." Will replied without the slightest change in modulation of his voice. He sighed out and looked at he piece of paper Joseph was holding, his puzzle. "Bring it here." he said.

Joseph laid out the paper on the floor of Will's bare cell to reveal a map with fake names and places and armies of differant compositions placed strategically but with no indication of what nationality the troops were. "Here is your situation, Will." Joseph said with a purposeful tone. "You are commanding the Army in red. You have just made a successful attack on the Army in Blue and driven them back a significant distance. They are beaten up badly, but have managed to form a strong defensive line to fall back on with concave positioning so as to catch any charge and surround it with overlapping fire."

"I can see the situation, Joseph." Will said deep in thought. "He is using me." Will thought. "This has to be a real battle somewhere. But which men are the ones I want to win. Are the enemy of the Scottans my Royal troops? Foreigners who support them? SATO? Even if I knew which side was the Scottans...I'm assuming it's red, but Joseph may be trying to trick me into helping him secure his strategy by telling him what the enemy may do...If I gave a bad solution to cause their defeat, I know not who would be victorious and who would occupy the Kingdom. The only thing I can safely do is give good advice. I may be helping the Scottans, but they may be the lesser evil. I cannot tell."

"First of all," Will finally spoke to Joseph "To defeat a defensive position, take advantage of its weaknesses, and/or flank it. A fixed position is always a good target..." Will continued on.

The Scottan guards looked in through the camera in the ceiling of Will's cell. He simply sat there. "Doesn't it look like there should be a throne there?" one of the Guards commented. "He is in rags...and yet he still looks like a King. And despite the fact that Joseph has come into his room several times, he still hasn't killed him for what he did."

"What kind of man could continue on after all that happened to him and still not take revenge against him who put him through hell?" another guard asked outloud.

"A good man." the third guard ventured.

"Indeed...he is a good man." the first guard answered.

" of the best." the second one agreed.

"Listen to us!" the first guard yelled with a laugh. "We are Joseph Thompson's personal guards and talking about the man who he deposed like he were Christ!" They all laughed, but nervously.

"Hey, turn on RNN, maybe they will have last night's baseball scores!" the second guard asked the third who reached for the remote control and turned it on. Pictures of the Grenadiers of the Republican Guard moving through Vicksburg and occupying the town were everywhere. Then they saw another horror. An RNN exclusive on what was believed to be a mass grave of Charred bodies discovered outside of Kamphstadt by Royalist forces. The pictures of badly burned corpses in tatters of Royal Guard uniforms, women, children, little babies, the elderly, all intertwined in a hellish mass of burnt flesh poured over the room with the Scottan guards. "You can tell RNN isn't based in Iesus...or Reichskamphen for that matter." the Second guard said.

"RNN would be shut down in a week if it werent for the fact that it is an international station." the first one added. He paused for a moment, a look of great gravity coming upon his face, "Do you think Joseph ordered those deaths?" he finally asked.

They all paused a moment to take in what was said, something hardly ever heard in the Triune Republic, let alone in the Republican Guard, a questioning of the Protector. "Yes." the third one finally answered. The others also agreed as soon as the third one stuck his neck out. "But what do we do about it?" the Third guard asked them all. The second guard turned the channel back to the veiw of the King's Cell. They all stared at the TV and knew exactly what to do.

The guard walked into the room where 3 guards were watching RNN tv.
"What are you doing!?"
"Nothing sir!" The guard shut the door behind him and looked at the king.
"Do you support him? If you do, leave now. Because Joseph's rule will not last much longer," the Jedi continued," the innocent death will not continue." And with that the Jedi left the room and pounded on the Cell door.

As soon as the Jedi left, the three guards picked up their rifles and followed the Jedi to King Will's cell. They snuck along behind him until he rapped on the door. Then they brought themselves into full view and cocked their rifles without speaking. This grabbed the Jedi's attention. The Scottans' minds raced. Finally, one lowered his rifle and said, "What do you need us to do?" The others the followed suit and offered their assistance as well.

"Guard the exit, we might need to make a quick escape." The guards then back up and made sure no one came into the cell block area. The cell door opened and Joseph was wide open. Joseph somewhat suspicious, started to reach for his weapon and the Jedi, with his quick reflexes, grabbed his lightsaber and cut through the air. Joseph stunned, watched helplessly as his arm fell to the ground. The Jedi then used the force and forced his hand forward, pushing Joseph back against the wall.
"Hello Joseph."
"What are you doing! I trusted you!"
"Hello my Lord," the Jedi bowed at King Will.
"Is this some rescue mission?"
"Actually, no, not really now. I came to ask Joseph of a favor. Joe....I hope you don't mind me calling you Joe. Abdicate the thrown." Joseph looked hard into his eyes while King Will sat there in silence.
"No!" Joseph reached behind his back and pulled out another pistol and fired. The Jedi jumped out to the right, spun and sliced his lightsaber right through Joseph's body. Josephs mouth overflowed with blood as his body went lifeless.
"My Lord, lets go. Do you know all the military frequencies and contacts?"
"Yes, unless they've been changed."
"Lets hope so. We're going to the radio room." The Jedi, the King, and the guards quickly made their way without being scene towards the radio room. Will sent the coded message to his C in C to hold off all engagement until further orders had been given.

This is RNN

Breaking news. With the Scottans on the brink of victory over the Royalists, a tragedy has struck the Triune Republic. Joseph Thompson, the Lord High protector has been assasinated. (Check the thread I mentioned earlier) It was discovered that one of his guards was infact a Jedi Knight from the nation of Jedi Revolutionists which has been assisting the Royalists. Assisted by three Scottans who apparantly turned against Joseph, the Jedi made an immense discovery. A tape was released this morning of King Will Thompson II arriving at Royalist headquarters in Kamphstadt. He was assumed dead twice, but it appears as if he has escaped from a Prison in Scotta where Will had been held by Joseph. This is one the analysts are going to have to explain in the coming months, but we have secondary and tertiary confirmation of King Will Thompson II's presence in Kamphstadt.

Joseph's Foreign Minister Viktor Leipzig has stepped into the gap and been appointed Lord High Protector by the Scottan Parliament.

Reports from the front indicate entire Scottan divisions laying down their arms upon hearing of King Will's presence.
His motorcade passed through the Scottan Army of Kamphstadt/Elbestadt, which had been pushed back to Elbestadt, with absolutely no resistance. Scottans layed down their weapons and yelled at the top of their lungs "God Save the King! God Save the King!"

Feld Marschall Walter von Brauchitz met with King Will and handed over his sword to Will without a fight. Scottan positions are surrendering all accross the Triune Republic. The Republican Guard along with 3 Scottan Infantry Divisions comprised of those who refused to surrender to the King have retreated into Scotta. King Will is expected to make his glorious re-entry into Reichsburg later today.

The War is not over, however. The Massive Republican Guard has fallen back to Scotta itself and estabished a strong line. Royal Guard regiments are reforming all accross Reichskamphen and Russapovia as well as Regiments of the Royal Army and Artillery.


I am not going to belabour my ordeal at the hands of Joseph, my comrades. What I endured was nothing compared to the pain that Christ felt on the Cross.

I will figure out what to do with this situation once I have been advised of what has occurred. Joseph has ruled this land for over a year. I have returned to re-establish the crown and restore the dynasty to its proper place. I have the support of the people and will defeate any Scottan forces that oppose me. I would like to thank my ever faithful friends in Akilliam for the support which I have heard they gave my men as well as the Jedi Revolutionists who freed me and the Wehrmacht region who committed so many troops and lost so many men to free the Kingdom. Most of all I would like to thank my Royal Guard who never lost their will to fight for the Fatherland. Pray for Queen Sarah for she is abroad. My son, Will III is now perfectly safe. Thankyou to Valinon and Milantos for taking them out of the country and to Milantos for donating troops and providing for my Royal Guard. I would also like to thank Menelmacar for keeping Queen Sarah safe. This is an act of true kindness that I would never have expected from a SATO nation. Pray for peace, my brothers.
