Idea for new RP... testing 1,2,3 *ahem*

Still in the making, help me make it. I think it could be good as there are no RPs like this, although I need some more elements.

My Brainstorming:
==ON EARTH
-nuclear winter of a sort
-anarchy mainly
-no year, vague around 1940-2000 no one keeps track
-historical events differ to real life so that government has collapsed and the world has sunk into oblivion of kill or be killed

==TECHNOLOGY
-common technology is largely the same as about 20-30 years back, as in crappy cars and household appliances.
-weaponry is more advanced than today as it is much much more commonly used and not restricted

==LAWS
-no government laws
-people can't function in complete anarchy so certain clans/groups/mafia type fueds arise, and rules could be set by the leader of a clan etc
-no laws saying you shall not kill, although killing a ranking member of a clan could get you into trouble

==RELIGION
-scarcely practiced
-never in public
-as there are no rules protecting it, the religious are vulnerable

==ENVIRONMENT
-abysmal
-despite todays common outlook, the government does look after the environment (maybe not enough, but it does) so without it the world is screwed. Welcome to this RP.
-diseases are deadly and noone is there to stop them
-pollution. enough said.

==WEAPONRY
-Advanced
-Bullets
-Virus warfare
-Chemical Warfare
-Atomic warfare is very, very rarely used.
-Guerilla warfare is the most common.
-Fugitives, undercover, espionage type is the war scene.

==BIOLOGY
-The thin wall of government protecting the very essence of human life has been obliterated.
-Cloning is still in its early stages
-Biological human enhancements which would be strictly forbidden nowadays are common. Think halo.

==CLANS
-Clans are groups of people of power and their followers who share the same views
-The clans are generally at war, fighting for supremecy above the others, trying to achieve more and more power by whatever means necessary.

---
This basically sets the scene, but these are just my ideas. Please, suggest changes and what you would think is better I want to put it into place.

RP Elements
I'm thinking total control of the writer in this RP. No GM, and far from it. Kill what you want. Even other RPers, I'm sure they can be cloned again.

To make a character, fill out as much of this as you would like to reveal at the start, or what is applicable.
NAME:
AGE:
APPEARANCE:
SKILLS:
JOB/OCCUPATION:
ENHANCEMENTS:
BACKGROUND:
CLAN:
RANK:
CLAN INFO:

or fill out more if you want.

So... I need your input. What do you think? It's still in the foundation stages and if its bad I'll just scrap it.

Edit by MightyMage  Seems like a promising idea.  Let's see how it plays out.  If all goes well I'll qp the hell out of it.

Thanks, good to see some support already.

Yeah I've never played Fallout so I wouldn't know.

But does anyone else have anymore ideas? Need a few more people too.

Oh and if it helps, the clans are like the Mafia, or like the japanese gang from Kill Bill kinda thing.

What about population? How many people have been killed by this Nuclear Winter? Something like 500 million, or a couple billion? And another thing, which continents are inhabited?

Interesting idea. A 'modern' times RP. Most of the ones I've gandered at were in a setting similar to games like HOMM, and many other RPGs. Dunno if it's been tried or not...

Quote:

-no laws saying you shall not kill, although killing a ranking member of a clan could get you into trouble

A bit further down I think you say that there is still some form of government left. If so, it's highly unlikely that they wouldn't have laws. Perhaps you should make the one government left be a totalitarian/fascist/whatever state a la 1984...

Quote:
==RELIGION
-scarcely practiced
-never in public
-as there are no rules protecting it, the religious are vulnerable

Why not make the religious 'zealots' their own clan? You could make them non-denomiantional by giving them a name like "The Faithful" (or something to that effect) and by blending elements from all the major religions now, like Marytrdom, Enlightenment, Compassion, etc.

Having the environment as a factor can make for very creative and unexpected plot developments. Good idea.

I like this idea the best. Cloak and Dagger combat IMO could very interesting, and is a good excuse for sudden betrayals, developments, etc.

==BIOLOGY
-The thin wall of government protecting the very essence of human life has been obliterated.
-Cloning is still in its early stages
-Biological human enhancements which would be strictly forbidden nowadays are common. Think halo.

Ever read Neuromancer by William Gibson? He uses technological enhancements a lot, and some of them are indeed very creative and intriguing. I'm not sure if that's what you mean by 'biological' enhancements. And about cloning, I think it brings up even more possibilities for plot turns, what with mistaken identity, espionage(Capture - Clone - Brainwash the Clone) and the like.

Quote:
==CLANS
-Clans are groups of people of power and their followers who share the same views
-The clans are generally at war, fighting for supremecy above the others, trying to achieve more and more power by whatever means necessary.

I like this style better than one that could have involved remnant countries, ie, what's left of USA vs what's left of China or something. I think that a clan's territory shouldn't necessarily be similar to existing national borders. Like, "The Ciel Rouge clan controls France, Spain and Portugal." doesn't sound good in my mind. Something like "The Black Jackal clan controls everything within 300 miles of the Nile." sounds better to me. I dunno.

Last but not least, what about having a valuable commodity that is being fought over by the clans? It could be real, like oil, or something fictional.

Gimme your thoughts, and remember, this is my first post ever in the Glade. So, be kind...

Jumpstart

I really like this idea regardless of what RSF says.  Nice ideas Sir Zapdos, I expect some good posts from you here in the glade.
I'll go ahead and create a character.

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.
CLAN:  GreenSun

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 parilized from the waist down.

Sounds good!

Quote:

Hmm... I left this open, I suppose alot of people *would* have died from the various reasons (winter, disease, crime etc.) I was thinking not so much about the population, but how many people you would see. In my vision of this world, the streets would be much less crowded, very few people, most would be underground or in headquarters. Violence, travel and some communication would be outside. So the point is that it would seem like a total decimation, but it's not as bad as it looks. The weak would have died, survival of the fittest kind of thing. But that's just my view. And with the continents, I think this would be suited to Europe, Russia and West Asia (not much of Asia is inhabited just the parts close to Europe), Northeast Africa (again closer to Europe), some of the Middle East. Basically that area. Possibly America/Canada, what does everyone think? No offence if I'm ruling out your country, I mean I'm ruling out mine because I can't picture espionage warfare centered in Australia, or Brazil. Although Mexico and that could work. Remember these countries have fallen and they are not as we know them, and also climate is different coz it's post apocalypse nuclear winter type thing.

Quote:

Ah.. I don't remember talking about government maybe I was referring to the governing body made by the leaders of clans. I was thinking more anarchy in terms of government as we think of it today. But the ruling of the clans is basically threatening, you wouldn't want to go against the wishes of a powerful tyrannical clan leader without an army to back you up, so that could be close to laws. Kind of.

It's an idea... I'm leaving the religious area open, and the religious clans actually looks promising. Different faiths.

Quote:

Yeah that's where I was thinking. Sounds nice.

And about cloning, I think it brings up even more possibilities for plot turns, what with mistaken identity, espionage(Capture - Clone - Brainwash the Clone) and the like.

No I haven't read that book... what I was thinking with the bio enhancements is like in the game Deus Ex (I think, I've never played the game but I've heard of the bio enhancements in that). So like.... artificialy enhanced blood flow to the retinal glands would improve eyesight... or muscle implants, protein and anabolic injections would improve strength... chemical experiments and surgery on the brain might make you smarter or certain acupuncture type treatment to the spinal cord would improve senses and the nervous system. That kind of thing, I like it as it breeds the character creation that we would be missing out on by doing a modern RPG with humans as opposed to aliens or monsters. I think that the enhancements should be risky, and also in the character creation should be watched to make sure no one goes overboard and makes super powerful chars.

Yeah I was thinking more along those lines too. I don't want it too spread out, and I think the best location would be Europe so I was thinking just around there so we don't have the distance barrier between our characters. The borders on countries are stringent because governments of the countries have fallen, and they are not as we think of them, and the names can change.

That's a good idea. Maybe technology?

That's good, but we still have to talk about the location. Old Detroit is OK if we include America, but if we don't we might have to say he moved to the area we included or whatever. Where do you think it should be set? Remember I want to keep it in a smallish area, as in not spread out all over the world to keep from having the distance barrier between our characters.

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.

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 Titanium 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:Titanium Shield

RANK:Head honcho, the big cheese, whatever you want to call it. Low ranking officials call him Sir.

CLAN INFO:The Titanium 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.


---UPDATED INFORMATION---
I think that we should go with Europe as the setting, my mob is centered around Northeast Europe of today. Slovak is more South, near todays Belgium and Turkey. Vladivostok City is obviously a city, large and commonly referred to as Vlad.

Also, for future rp'ers, I've seen a fault in the planning that can be fixed. I ran into this in the HotG, being the leader of an organization by yourself means you have to control generally everyone in it which can be tough, especially in a scene like the jailbreak in HotG where you have to juggle numerous accomplices. So it would be much appreciated if maybe we could get people to focus on less clans and more connections, if everyone has their own clan things could get messy. Just a thought.

We'll have to wait for some more members anyway.

===Update===

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.

First Female Character

Name: Rose Thorn
Country of Birth: Ireland
Currently residing in: Brittland

Alignment: Techno-druids.

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 qukte 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'.

That's it for now - any questions or stuff I may have got wrong (since I skimmed the details) just correct me or ask me

It'd be great if you wanted to join Iron Shield, the new name of my clan.

Also, another note:
In the original idea, the *basic* technology is pretty low (apart from weapons). I've kept it that way, my guys Check is just a radio built into your head that no one can listen into unless you want them to. So what I'm trying to say is that some of the stuff that people are edging towards is kind of high-tech so we could keep it that way or no, it doesn't really make a *huge* difference. I just didn't want it to go into an Axis type futuristic thing.

And another thing I forgot to mention... This world is assuming that the Cold War had become violent, and the Nuclear Arms pretty much released to cause this world. But that doesn't mean it's necessarily the Americans vs. the Russians vs. the French etc... mainly that we, to survive the worst part, had to ignore cultural and national barriers and bond together. So now the enemy lines consist of clans and groups.

I'll start up the OOC thread I think, so go have a look at that for the *final* product. Glad everyone joined.

Well, I assumed the implants could count as weaponry, but I could always edit if you feel that's pushing it a bit too far. Maybe addressing specific concerns could help move the conception of the RP along more smoothly, because people may lose interest if you wait too long.

So far everyone has been fine in terms of advances. I'm starting the OOC thread now.

EDIT:

Head over to the OOC thread!

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: see job/occupation

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.
