Cold Winter OOC

Welcome... to the Cold Winter.
It could be anywhere from the year 1970 to the new millenium.
At the peak of Stalin's powers during the Nuclear Arms Race he was pushed to violence, threatened by the other nuclear weapons. A release of lower powered weapons targeting Paris and New York as a demonstation of power. Retaliation was forced and civilization as the world knew it descended into a all out war.

So much nuclear energy was released, the environment was devastated. After the explosions died down, the spread of smoke and other pollution in the atmosphere from nuclear fires absorbed too much sunlight, the smoke darkening the sky and ultimately sending the world into a long, dark, nuclear winter.

Most died as a result. Entire cities and governments fell. The human race was forced into a retreat below ground.
Now the skies are clearer, and the temperature has risen enough to be able to go outdoors, the survivors emerge from their havens showing the true numbers.

However the war is not over. We have been forced to forget the national barriers as they once divided us, country and neighbour, as the barriers themselves died with the Winter. Government has returned in the form of organized crime and power groups and mafias called "Clans". Powerful individuals lead their followers in search of superiority. Nuclear warfare is no longer used as we have seen the damage it can do, but weapons are far from gone. Anarchy is run rampant, the Clans seek to end that and restore order, with their clan on top. The only way is to crush the enemies on the climb to power.

Take part in this battle, choose friend or foe in a world of kill or be killed. Join, the Cold Winter.

For easy reference...

CHARACTERS

RPER:Titanium Alloy
NAME:Titan
AGE:Late twenties to early thirties
APPEARANCE:Medium length red hair with a light beard, scarred face. Very heavy build, a feared and revered figure of authority.
SKILLS:Apart from his leadership skills, Titan is a quick thinker and an insane fighter. His weapon of choice is an automatic rail gun. His brutal appearance gives off no false illusions; he is a force to be reckoned with.
JOB/OCCUPATION:Founder and leader of the Iron Shield mafia.
ENHANCEMENTS:Titan has power in the form of contacts, and a little money and a telegram can get him Amin-pro, a rare and heavily sought after vitamin which when injected to the body improves muscle growth rapidly, making him highly muscular. A highly advanced communication device called a Check surgically implanted into his aural tract, allowing him to communicate to others via telephone, utilizing hyper-modulated (HM, Titanium Shields own type of frequency so that no one can listen in) radio waves to speak to other high ranking officers with Checks.
BACKGROUND:Titan grew up from rich backgrounds in Slovak (near todays Belgium), his parents were the owners of a chain of mines around the Vladivostok Empire region. While Titan was still young, his father died of a failed experiment involving brain surgery. His mother was then asassinated by an unknown clan, leaving all the families posessions to him. Using the Titanium Alloy metal he gained from his mines, he began to use it to gain power. With all the money he could want, none needed to be sold. Using his resources and wealth for all they are worth, he gained connections, power, and a reputation.
CLAN:Iron Shield
RANK:Lead mafioso.
CLAN INFO:The Iron Shield is organized crime at its finest. Craving power more than anything, and superiority over the other clans. Offence is multiplier and escalated at the slightest of provocation towards the Iron Shield mob, and retaliation is swift, deadly and accurate. Although generally thought of as one of the strongest organizations, a sense of corruption and greed is quite present among the ranks. The main headquarters is in Vlad, although minor hq's are set up in secret locations in major cities around Europe.

RPER:Mighty Mage
NAME:Darius T. Long (aka TEK)
AGE:Roughly 25
APPEARANCE:A dark fellow who rarely smiles. TEK always sports his hair in dreadlocks and is always found neatly shaven. He is usually seen in a long black leather jacket, open at the front to reveal a dark red shirt with a logo on the front. Most say it represents his clan. Below that he has two belts...one for his gun. He has a scar running along his left eye. They say the person that gave it to him never lived long enough to give him another one.
SKILLS:TEK is only known for two things. His strength and how to use it.
JOB/OCCUPATION:He currently holds no job
ENHANCEMENTS:Although technology in general never advanced, the new studies in weapons and biological enhancments opened doors to new possibilities. Both of TEK's arms are robotic implants, hence the name TEK.
BACKGROUND:Born in a poor neighborhood in Old Detroit, Darius and his brother were raised by their mother never knowing their father. Being the oldest, Darius felt obligated to help his family and was always looking for odd jobs here and there just to put some food on the table. Unfortunately when Darius was 16, the area in which he lived was taken by one of the local clans and his home was one of their targets. His mother was shot and killed and his brother badly injured. From that day forward, Darius vowed to never let any harm come to his brother again and that whatever it took, he would take back what was his and get his revenge. TEK has been informed that conditions in the Union Divided (Formerly U.S.A.) have become too unstable. Those that still lived there have either moved or died. Hawk, (although TEK calls him by his name, Jay) leader of GreenSun has decided it best to move from this god forsaken wasteland. He's decided that their new HQ will be in Brittland (Former England) as it hasn't been claimed by any other Clans yet. They will set up base and go from there.
CLAN:Green Sun
RANK:Hardcore Lead (Not in charge but directly below the leader)
CLAN INFO:GreenSun started out as a territorial gang with the sole purpose of erradicating violence and crime. However, as their purpose remained the same the methods they used changed. Eventually as the members and territory grew GreenSun evolved into a respected and feared clan. This clan seemed ideal for Darius who wanted nothing more than to remove the clan that took his home and his mother. Darius continues to look after his younger brother Tim who is paralyzed from the waist down.

RPER:Asmodean
NAME:Rose Thorn
COUNTRY OF BIRTH:Ireland
CURRENTLY RESIDING IN:Brittland
ALIGNMENT:Techno-druids.
CLAN:Edenists
BACKGROUND:Rose is the charismatic leader/priestess of a New Age cult called the Edenists.
Superficially their goal is the maintenance of the environment, and have extensively replanted many trees in the territory they control.
They are made up of fanatics who believe that they have been chosen by the Gods (of which they believe in quite a few) to plant a new Garden of Eden.
In reality Rose is a psychopath and ruthless manipulator. She is quite beautiful, and uses this in the powerplay between the various faction leaders she deals with.
Schooled in pharmacology she has perfected a drug which requires only a single dose to addict the user.
While not addicted to it herself, every other member of the Edenists are, making them extremely hard to infiltrate. She is the only one who knows the complete formula for the drug, although she has developed machines to synthesise and dispense the daily dose needed by her followers.
The slang name for it is 'Juice'.

---

RPER:Shadowcaster
NAME:Sisko
AGE:16
APPEARANCE:Small and lanky, with ruffled and greasy brown hair and a pair of useless spectacles without the lenses, a trinket he keeps only because he treasures them so. Stole a labcoat from an abandoned nuclear waste site, and wears it over tattered clothing, a stark contrast exists between the two layers. He never removes the coat, as he hates the cold and it keeps him warm when the clouds of dust block out the sun the strongest.
SKILLS:Even at the young age of 16, Sisko has made a name for himself by inventing surgical implants for the brain that greatly increase not only intelligence, but also gives the user minor psychic abilites. He hopes someday to fully develop this technology, but as of now, his device can only affect the weak-minded.
JOB/OCCUPATION:Inventor, earns money by selling his sole invention.
ENHANCEMENTS:Psychic implant prototype, installed himself after his parents abandoned him to his stark devotion to his invention. He constantly modifies it in hopes of one day fulfilling his dream.
BACKGROUND:At a young age, Sisko showed great genius, a trait that his parents tried to exploit at every turn for their own gain. Eventually, he grew fed up with this and built a system of elaborate locks for the room that served as his laboratory. His parents eventually stopped feeding him in an attempt to draw him out, but Sisko mysteriously survived and continued his unknown projects. They soon abandoned him, believing he was dead, and Sisko struck out on his own. Two years later, at the age of 14, his invention was complete, and Sisko once again entered into the world he had been isolated from for so long.
CLAN:Supplies Clan Rockfist with Mindbenders, as he calls his invention, in exchange for their protection.
RANK: Mercenary, of sorts
CLAN INFO: Rockfist, once filled with brutes and bullies that were well-known not only for their tremendous strength, but also their tremendous stupidity. Sisko found great opportunity to test the limits of his machine in this clan, and has succeeded in raising them to an average intelligence level, a respectable turn for the once moronic clan. They soon became feared around the globe as a clan not to be trifled with. Only downfall is that they possess limited, and very basic, weaponry.

RPER:Lord Woock
NAME: Samuel (aka Flick)
AGE: 23
APPEARANCE: Tall and skinny, long brown hair, wears a battered old black jacket and a pair of shades.
SKILLS: Very good at getting his points across. Can lie pretty damn well when necessary. He's also a fast shot with small guns and knows how to handle a knife.
JOB/OCCUPATION: His unquestionable charisma and loyalty have earned him the job of Titan's "right hand". Officially, however, he is a low-rank officer and uses this position to seek out traitors.
ENHANCEMENTS: Due to a nasty wound he received in a fight in his early years in the Iron Shield, he got his eye replaced with an electronic one, which greatly improves his aim.
BACKGROUND:Sam was an orphan, found on the street by an Iron Shield operative. He was trained in the use of small arms since then, to hopefully make a fine addition to the Iron Shield ranks. It was his other talents that Titan found worthwhile, however, and when Sam was 17, he was given his current duties. He has promised himself to never betray his master.
CLAN:Iron Shield
RANK: Officer
CLAN INFO: The Iron Shield is organized crime at its finest. Craving power more than anything, and superiority over the other clans. Offence is multiplier and escalated at the slightest of provocation towards the Titanium Shield mob, and retaliation is swift, deadly and accurate. Although generally thought of as one of the strongest organizations, a sense of corruption and greed is quite present among the ranks. The main headquarters is in Vlad, although minor hq's are set up in secret locations in major cities around Europe.

RPER:SirZapdos
NAME:Chaz
AGE:31
APPEARANCE:Short brown hair, pale skin, usually wears jeans, hooded sweatshirt, and a black fleece jacket overtop.
SKILLS:A renowned tactician, Chaz is best known for his elaborate and somewhat unorthodox plans of attack and carefully laid traps. Average at best with a pistol, Chaz relies primarily on his wits, and some luck.
JOB/OCCUPATION:Tactician
ENHANCEMENTS:Although a stark luddite for the longest time, Chaz has come to rely on enhancements, as his heart was punctured on one of his more risky missions. Seeing first hand the benefit of technology, Chaz has since had an EDR-2000 chip implanted to improve his hearing, as well as lung enhancements to improve his running stamina.
BACKGROUND:Chaz grew up in the tough neighbourhoods of Novatra City, where, under the guidance of his older cousin, he learned that brute strength was the key to survival. Chaz trained in numerous martial arts and worked out constantly as a teen in order to be as strong as his cousin, who at the time, was believed to be the strongest man in the Novatran sprawl. One day though, his cousin was ambushed by 3 foot soldiers from a now eradicated clan. Chaz watched as these 2 men literally beat his cousin to death. Chaz then learned that it would take more than brute strength to survive. With this new found philosophy, Chaz sought out knowledge and wisdom from wherever he could find it. Chaz read everything he could, whether it be about geography, electronics, or his personal favourite, books about war.
Chaz's first major success came exactly 1 year after the King and Bay massacre. A clan from the north, RedBrick, seemed intent on unifying Novatra, and in a demonstration of power, incinerated the housing district at King and Bay, killing over 400 hundred people, many of whom grew up with Chaz. Chaz sought revenge for this atrocity, and it came, after over 11 months of planning and hard work. Monitoring the RedBrick shipping routes, Chaz noticed that every 26 days, RedBrick vans had to undergo very careful maintenance, so precise that only one garage in the state could properly maintain the vehicles. So, Chaz started the first phase of his plan, and studied the art of car repair, taking apart and rebuilding old cars for weeks on end. When an opening at the mechanic's garage came up, due to the 'mysterious' disappearance of one its mechanics, Chaz applied and got the job. Once there, he continued to improve, until, 5 months later, he was second in skill to only the garage owner himself. So, Chaz waited, and waited. Finally, the opportunity came. The owner had to leave town for a few days, and put Chaz in charge for a few days. On a maintenance day, Chaz 'forgot' to schedule anyone else, and was left with the entire maintence job himself. Due to this 'unforeseen' setback, the job would take longer than usual, so Chaz suggested that the driver take in a movie at the megaplex across the street. The driver liked the idea. Big mistake. With the garage all to himself, Chaz filled the van with as much explosives as possible, being sure to not overload it, as the driver would certainly notice an extra ton of weight. Chaz, who knew the shipping routes and arrival times like the back of his hand, set the explosives for the exact time that the van would arrive back at the RedBrick supply depot.
The resulting explosion engulfed the depot, creating a chain of explosions, setting off most of the artillery and ammunition in the depot's many warehouses. With most of its firepower destroyed, and many of its soldiers wounded, dead or just plain stupified, this presented one of RedBrick's rival with a once in a lifetime opportunity. The clan attacked the RedBrick HQ, punched through what defense was left, and executed RedBrick's leaders, and thus laying claim to RedBrick's territories.
CLAN: Chaz has been a member of GreenSun for nearly 6 years, and has worked his way up the ranks, due mainly to his outrageous, though rousingly successful tactics.
RANK:Deputy Chief of EIT (Espionage, Intelligence and Tactics), GreenSun clan. The Deputy Chief position allows Chaz the ability to create and control the plan from HQ, or if he so chooses, to carry it out himself.
CLAN INFO:GreenSun started out as a territorial gang with the sole purpose of erradicating violence and crime. However, as their purpose remained the same the methods they used changed. Eventually as the members and territory grew GreenSun evolved into a respected and feared clan.

RPER:Terje the Mad Wizard
NAME:Thorgrim
AGE:Somewhere between 35 and 40
APPEARANCE:Looks like heís 30. Tall, sinewy. Black hair, and a very scarred face. If the rest of his body is scarred as well, only he knows. He usually wears black clothes, but he also has some camouflage clothes as well; both snow camouflage and vegetation camouflage.
SKILLS:Thorgrim is skilled at most things, but the things he specializes in are somewhat fewer. He is skilled with both his long knifes, double headed axe, and medium class crossbow, but most of all he relies on his stealth skills. He has superb agility, knows some martial arts, and enduring. Not too physical strong though, but since he has these other skills, he doesnít necessarily have to be. Not hyper-intelligent, but smarter than most people. He also speaks all major Western European languages fluently (he never operates east of the river Oder).
JOB/OCCUPATION:Mercenary; specialist in assassinations, espionage, and theft.
ENHANCEMENTS:Itís suspected that some form of genetic engineering has been done to Thorgrim, because of his superb agility.
BACKGROUND:About fifteen years ago, with maybe one month interval between them, ca. 8 men came out of Scandinavia, slipping almost unnoticed into the more densely populated areas further south. All these men looked fairly identical, or so the people who have seen more than one of them claim, and had the same skills. They began hiring themselves out to the highest bidder, seemingly with the only rule that they wouldnít fight for someone whose enemy had hired on of the 8.
All these men, who went under the name of the Einherjer, were loyal to their current employer, but once their contract was done, they had no problem with changing sides. Because these men possessed so lethal skills, measures were taken to exterminate them. 6 were killed, with Thorgrim and another Einherjer, known as Thorgeir, as the only survivors. They did not attempt to avenge their fallen brothers, but continued hiring themselves out as usual. Since there were only two of them now, the people who had hunted them decided that they werenít worth enough to hunt down (each of the 6 who had been killed, had taken ca. 15 of their assassinators with them, and Thorgrim and Thorgeir had between them killed over 30 attackers).
Thorgrim is currently unemployed, and his last mission is unknown to other than him and his employer. Discretion is vital for the Einherjers.
But the loyalty of the Einherjer isnít total; they have been known to slaughter the teams they have been set to work with, if these teams committed atrocities toward the civil population. They have also gone out of their way during missions sometimes to help people who have been kidnapped by clans for ransom, to get back to their families.
CLAN:None. The Einherjer canít be said to be a clan, since thereís only two of them, and they donít fight for their own interests.
RANK:Eternal freelancer. Whatever rank heís assigned.
CLAN INFO: n/a
ALLIEGANCE:The clan heís currently employed by. The civilian population of former Europe. It has been speculations about some secret Ďorganizationí that supposedly trained and armed him, and enhanced his agility.
CURRENT LOCATION:In a small town close to what used to be the border between Belgium and Germany.

ENHANCEMENTS: Although a stark luddite for the longest time, Chaz has come to rely on enhancements, as his heart was punctured on one of his more risky missions. Seeing first hand the benefit of technology, Chaz has since had an EDR-2000 chip implanted to improve his hearing, as well as lung enhancements to improve his running stamina.

BACKGROUND: Chaz grew up in the tough neighbourhoods of Novatra City, where, under the guidance of his older cousin, he learned that brute strength was the key to survival. Chaz trained in numerous martial arts and worked out constantly as a teen in order to be as strong as his cousin, who at the time, was believed to be the strongest man in the Novatran sprawl. One day though, his cousin was ambushed by 3 foot soldiers from a now eradicated clan. Chaz watched as these 2 men literally beat his cousin to death. Chaz then learned that it would take more than brute strength to survive. With this new found philosophy, Chaz sought out knowledge and wisdom from wherever he could find it. Chaz read everything he could, whether it be about geography, electronics, or his personal favourite, books about war.
Chaz's first major success came exactly 1 year after the King and Bay massacre. A clan from the north, RedBrick, seemed intent on unifying Novatra, and in a demonstration of power, incinerated the housing district at King and Bay, killing over 400 hundred people, many of whom grew up with Chaz. Chaz sought revenge for this atrocity, and it came, after over 11 months of planning and hard work. Monitoring the RedBrick shipping routes, Chaz noticed that every 26 days, RedBrick vans had to undergo very careful maintenance, so precise that only one garage in the state could properly maintain the vehicles. So, Chaz started the first phase of his plan, and studied the art of car repair, taking apart and rebuilding old cars for weeks on end. When an opening at the mechanic's garage came up, due to the 'mysterious' disappearance of one its mechanics, Chaz applied and got the job. Once there, he continued to improve, until, 5 months later, he was second in skill to only the garage owner himself. So, Chaz waited, and waited. Finally, the opportunity came. The owner had to leave town for a few days, and put Chaz in charge for a few days. On a maintenance day, Chaz 'forgot' to schedule anyone else, and was left with the entire maintence job himself. Due to this 'unforeseen' setback, the job would take longer than usual, so Chaz suggested that the driver take in a movie at the megaplex across the street. The driver liked the idea. Big mistake. With the garage all to himself, Chaz filled the van with as much explosives as possible, being sure to not overload it, as the driver would certainly notice an extra ton of weight. Chaz, who knew the shipping routes and arrival times like the back of his hand, set the explosives for the exact time that the van would arrive back at the RedBrick supply depot.
The resulting explosion engulfed the depot, creating a chain of explosions, setting off most of the artillery and ammunition in the depot's many warehouses. With most of its firepower destroyed, and many of its soldiers wounded, dead or just plain stupified, this presented one of RedBrick's rival with a once in a lifetime opportunity. The clan attacked the RedBrick HQ, punched through what defense was left, and executed RedBrick's leaders, and thus laying claim to RedBrick's territories.

CLAN: Chaz has been a member of GreenSun for nearly 6 years, and has worked his way up the ranks, due mainly to his outrageous, though rousingly successful tactics.

RANK: Deputy Chief of EIT (Espionage, Intelligence and Tactics), GreenSun clan. The Deputy Chief position allows Chaz the ability to create and control the plan from HQ, or if he so chooses, to carry it out himself.

CLAN INFO: GreenSun started out as a territorial gang with the sole purpose of erradicating violence and crime. However, as their purpose remained the same the methods they used changed. Eventually as the members and territory grew GreenSun evolved into a respected and feared clan.

Great, thanks, yeah new characters and other OOC stuff goes in here from now on.

Also,
I found these on the internet as Photoshop brushes, I think they're from a computer game. They look like they could be clan crests:

like...

Rockfist?


Iron shield?


Greensun?

There was also these ones.




Just a thought. Also Sir Zapdos, where abouts is Novatra City?

I'm making a map of the Cold Winter. Heres the map with no markings, I made it myself on Photoshop using a satellite image of Europe.


Note that the ice from coastal north France and south England have reached out far enough to bring the two together. It's still a path, even if it is treacherous and prone to collapse.

I need details from people about where to put their cities/clans/characters etc.

Those are from Quake 3 Arena, and the one you chose for Iron Shield is actually a railgun blast and went with the "impressive" award which you were given for effective use of said gun, which resembles a sniper rifle. Dunno if that's a good pick

Lol, Asmodean, don't you think the artist making the WoT chapter icons will see this as abuse of her intellectual property?

********************************************************************

RPER: Terje the Mad Wizard

NAME: Thorgrim

AGE: Somewhere between 35 and 40

APPEARANCE: Looks like heís 30. Tall, sinewy. Black hair, and a very scarred face. If the rest of his body is scarred as well, only he knows. He usually wears black clothes, but he also has some camouflage clothes as well; both snow camouflage and vegetation camouflage.

SKILLS: Thorgrim is skilled at most things, but the things he specializes in are somewhat fewer. He is skilled with both his long knifes, double headed axe, and medium class crossbow, but most of all he relies on his stealth skills. He has superb agility, knows some martial arts, and enduring. Not too physical strong though, but since he has these other skills, he doesnít necessarily have to be. Not hyper-intelligent, but smarter than most people. He also speaks all major Western European languages fluently (he never operates east of the river Oder).

JOB/OCCUPATION: Mercenary; specialist in assassinations, espionage, and theft.

ENHANCEMENTS: Itís suspected that some form of genetic engineering has been done to Thorgrim, because of his superb agility.

BACKGROUND: About fifteen years ago, with maybe one month interval between them, ca. 8 men came out of Scandinavia, slipping almost unnoticed into the more densely populated areas further south. All these men looked fairly identical, or so the people who have seen more than one of them claim, and had the same skills. They began hiring themselves out to the highest bidder, seemingly with the only rule that they wouldnít fight for someone whose enemy had hired on of the 8.
All these men, who went under the name of the Einherjer, were loyal to their current employer, but once their contract was done, they had no problem with changing sides. Because these men possessed so lethal skills, measures were taken to exterminate them. 6 were killed, with Thorgrim and another Einherjer, known as Thorgeir, as the only survivors. They did not attempt to avenge their fallen brothers, but continued hiring themselves out as usual. Since there were only two of them now, the people who had hunted them decided that they werenít worth enough to hunt down (each of the 6 who had been killed, had taken ca. 15 of their assassinators with them, and Thorgrim and Thorgeir had between them killed over 30 attackers).
Thorgrim is currently unemployed, and his last mission is unknown to other than him and his employer. Discretion is vital for the Einherjers.
But the loyalty of the Einherjer isnít total; they have been known to slaughter the teams they have been set to work with, if these teams committed atrocities toward the civil population. They have also gone out of their way during missions sometimes to help people who have been kidnapped by clans for ransom, to get back to their families.

CLAN: None. The Einherjer canít be said to be a clan, since thereís only two of them, and they donít fight for their own interests.

RANK: Eternal freelancer. Whatever rank heís assigned.

CLAN INFO: n/a

MY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

ALLIEGANCE: The clan heís currently employed by. The civilian population of former Europe. It has been speculations about some secret Ďorganizationí that supposedly trained and armed him, and enhanced his agility.

CURRENT LOCATION: In a small town close to what used to be the border between Belgium and Germany.

Wherever you want it to be...

I still wasn't sure if the game was going to be confined to Europe, so I just made up a city. I can errata my background to make it a real city if you want.

Just a question: What currency is in use in this place? And which modern-day currency does it resemble (in value)?
