The actual RP thread get up on it
In 2048 the United states collapsed under financial strain, crime had been on the rise long before that, chaos broke out. For two years the military attempted to control the ensuing chaos, but the nation went mad. It is now 2061 and many states took upon different Ideals, and from each group a leader rose.
Daniel Faulk age 40, miltant leader of a paramilitary group taking control of mostly southern states and heading a command center of sorts somehwere in Illinois, caused an event commonly known as "The blackout" in 2058 which was the simultaneous destruction of Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri (Represented as black on the map) in an attempt to disallow the enemy to ever control them and to show that he had true power (Represented as blue on the map)
Thomas Peters age 38, leader of Square one Mercenary organization, Square one controlling mostly the western states, commanding from somewhere in northern Nevada near Reno. Is said to know what happened to Washington shortly after the blackout but has vowed to to have it released until his death.
Wishes to reclaim the nation as it once was with some semblance of democracy. (represented as orange on the map)
Over the years states seperated and came together, much war was fought and to this day much still rages on. Texas and new york are surrounded from the opposing factions and have become a war for control. Some states (Represented as grey on the map) have attemted to stay as neutral as possible not siding with either faction, some have formed very small unorganized groups of their own and some are overun with bandits. Five states are completely destroyed the first was Maryland and subsequently D.C.
The four states in the Blackout were next when Daniel Faulk destroyed them via nuclear detonation, it remains unclear how he obtained missiles, but he did it as a show of power. Washington was mysteriously destroyed four months after the Blackout, Daniel however was not credited for this one. Many say a stray nuke or it's own internal conflict some even say Aliens, Thomas Peters is the only one who truly knows.
Militant, disciplined and vicious soldiers under Daniel Faulks control. Most are refered to by their last names only in the Seekers.
Strict military training and lifestyle best describes the ranks of the seekers. Will stop at nothing to reclaim the nation even if they have to kill everyone in sight. Although militant their territories are considerably safer and more well supplied that thoes controlled by Square 1, and their soldiers are actual soldiers with real training and good gear. The Seekers Insignia is a blue crosshair with black X in the middle.
Mercenaries from all walks of life and combat training and experience. Defending what is theres and bringing the nation back to what it once was is what they strive for. Most mercenaries are given Nicknames on the field in someway or another for instance there was a Mercenary nicknamed Vulture because he often came back alone and reeking of death, many claimed he ate his fallen team members. Everyone was very surprised they day he died to say the least. Square 1 has many varied characters but none have recived quite the amount of training as the seekers, in addition square 1 acts not only as the military but as the police as well, making their territories not nearly as safe to live in as thoes controlled by seekers and supplies and gear are of less quailty and quantity in Square 1. Square one's insignia is an hollow Orange square with a small one inside it repeating several times.
Characters sheet (Factions should be one of the main two factions, I'd like to wait to see if this goes anywhere to bring in smaller factions, and keep in mind not every mercenary has to have a nickname yet they could be new or just have yet to be given one.)
NAME AND NICKNAME IF APPLICABLE:
WEAPONS AND GEAR:
So yeah that's basically it if you have any questions, concerns words of interest and spellchecks feel free to post them
if you'd like to get in on this PM me first I'd like to start this with a few people on each faction first, the character sheet is just there for if you'd like to sign up just have it ready and PM it to me so I can get things organized. I hope we can get this underway and sorry for all the lines the lack of spacing was weirding me out. Also forgot to add this but technology has somewhat advanced nothing to amazing modern guns and such for the most part, no lasers or anything and Prosthetics are much more advanced and articulate, fully functional for limbs, hands and feet, and even eyes.
There has been some updates to the factions information to give them a more balanced feel, and this is all subject to change as time goes on aswell but for now this is it.
As of right now there is one "squad" "group" "team" "whatever" in square one consisting of:
Myself as Ezra "Rain Dog" Alonzo - Assault/Point-man. Kind of a dick.
Phreniphorm as Oliver "Phantom" Swenson - Scouting and infiltrations. A specalist, a thinker, a Viking.
King Skrillah as Tim "Shadow" Weeks - Snipes and subterfuge. Real sneaky guy.
Vikeadin as Jason "Ducky" Cogwell - Mad hacking and mechanical skills, general go to guy. Young and supple.
Desertrat as Jay "Boom" Arguile - BOOM BANG STAB STAB STAB EATS C-4 FOR BREAKFAST AND SHITS KNIVES.
That's what we've got so far anyone else who joins we will try and accomodate you comfortably into everything and rememeber for thoes who join Square 1 don't need a nickname, you can be a new recruit or be in the gang and just haven't earned one yet, and double remember Seekers need YOU! for a better America today!
Actual RP will be up today so brace yourselves.

there you are.
