OK, here's the rundown and backstory.

Clay has gone to this world due to a long-running feud with a demon, a demon that Stephen King fans will find similar to Randall Flagg and HP Lovecraft fans will find similar to Nyarlahothep.

Here's how this world works: one Pangeatic continent, Two empires separated by a spinal mountain range that makes the Himalayas look like foothills. The mountains and the plateaus and steppes surrounding them are peopled with several thousand tribes of semi-barbaric warlike people.

The two empires:

One of them is essentially Chinese/Pan-Asian, the other is Indian/Persian.

Both have an Emperor and 4 billion people. The mountain people in total number 250,000.

Tech Level is ~ WWII. There are some helicopters, no jets. The only atomic bombs there ever were or will be just went off, the demon brought them in from elsewhere.

Here is the plot:

The Demon convinces the two emperors to blow up the most sacred and holy place on the Planet. (Basically Tibet) and will be annoyed that the country cannot be used as a route to start a war between them because of radioactive fallout.

The Demon's plan is to lock both sides into a massive and hopeless conflict and slowly destroy the empires and most of their citizens with fire, famine, pestilence and disease, then to follow it up with one big plague that would send the world back to the freaking stone age.

Clay just saved the daughter of the high priest and a very holy personage, to continue the faith of the enlightened after the downfall of the country. Prior to that he became the leader of the world's most feared assassins, the Hashishiyun.

He has brought Adric to this world and plans to unite the barbarian tribes to resist the war and keep both sides from getting at each other through the mountains.

Then he will foster revolution in the Empire because by the end of the week, he'll have the word out who performed the attacks on the Land of Enlightenment.

If you are interested in playing, Clay has left the door open to the outside for friends to enter and help him overthrow the plans of the Demon.

Be prepared. The Demon has psychotic, superhuman henchmen that will seek you and attempt to kill you as you carry out assassinations, spread revolutions or fight alongside the people of the mountains with Sniper Rifle, fighter plane, or Anti-Tank weapon.

Post in this thread with questions if you have them, sign up here, use it for OOC.

I am so in.

Again, this will be my base character I play with, I'm thinking of making him psudo-natural to this plane. So, you know the drill, flaming blue eyes and a general short range physical omnisience, yadda yadda yaddaand in

I'll find a place to insert myself.

Once I have a bit more free time on my hands, I'd really like to join.

Would the name of these assassins be any kind of allusion to the hashashins?

Hashishiyun is a far better transliteration. It is indeed the word and the order from which the word Assassin is derived. Founded by Hassan, the infamous Old Man of the Mountain.

Just making sure it wasn't an odd coincidence :wink:

Damn it...I lose internets for just over a week and a new RPG is started. Man, it's gonna take a bit to get a character for this.

A question for this idiot:

- Do you think I should try to create someone new, like a trader, millionaire, & whatnot or would it work to have me bring Band from Bimbo's in with Uncle Pervy. Considering the potential for fun with Pervy meeting a similar Lovecraft-style demon might try to turn him or to just have tentacle-on-tentacle action, I'm not sure which I should try with this. Anyone give me their thoughts or at least Clay to let me know if it would work for him having Pervy in there.

Until I get a response, I'll read through the stuff Mad & Clay already put up in "Two Guys..."

EDIT: Just got done reading the previous posts and I'm loving it. Though I need to make sure of my character so as to figure out just how I'm gonna meet up with either one of them. If I do Band w/ Pervy, I'm probably gonna have to update some stuff in the UPPO.

either a new guy, from inside or outside the world, or band himself should be fine, since the initial stageof clay's plan is to just cause disruption in the two large nations i believe.

As for introductions to the story, Mad is about to reach the old ammo dump/armoury, and i'm planning to have a group of brigands there that he 'signs up' with. Crime is, after all, a great way to disrupt a normal govornment/society. Bandy and Chaos can Feel free to include yourselves amongst the brigands and write up an introductory post straight away and then i'll bring mad in after.

I'm inexperienced at RPing myself, but damn you guys can write a good story! Most web RPs aren't much fun to read without participating in, but not so with this one.

Story telling is one of my life's obsessions. An RPG to me is just a way of telling a good story.

In any case thanks for the positive feedback. My ego just jumped up a pants size.

indeed! i love telling a tale be it spoken, written, or through images. I see RP as freeform creative writing. with spelling mistakes and typos because i am illiterate, a terrible typer, and lazy.

Clay: Need clarification from you. The city he and Kim are going to from the radio station, is that the Capitol or another city literally between the Capitol & the Central Range?

Having been away for a long time, I've just dropped in briefly to read... and I'm enjoying this RP. Clay and Mad are doing a fabulous job!

I don't think I have time to participate. The place where I would have been staying in this world has just been flattened by The Bomb, anyway. (As is typical for me, I'm sure I would have been close to the destruction, but far enough away to survive.)

I'll continue to read, though. Kudos, guys!

LovelyAngel: Now that's high praise from a respected source! I'll try not to let you down.

B2K: Yeah, you got it. Capital city bound. Though since the Chinese are commies would it be Means of Production bound? Nevermind. Meet us. Approach Clay, not Kim. A being of your sort approaching his companion would start you out on about as wrong a foot as you could come up with.

Well... at the time you'd only made an initial entry... and, as you know, much of the art is being able to weave your narrative with those of others... so it's too early to say how your contribution works out. (I doubt there'll be an issue with your RP writing of course.) I just had to give Mad and Clay credit for the bulk of work that had already been done.

One way or another, I'll make you be proud of me. Tally-ho!
