Yep. It's another one of those. Yeah, many failed miserably, including one of mine. Hopefully this one won't suffer the same fate. RULES: This is freelance. Do what you want, when you want, how you want, so long as it's within the rules. You can travel anywhere in the world of the 1930's (about 1929-1941). All items (weapons, food, etc.) must be in keeping with the time period (so that means no Deseet Eagles, Barretts, USAS auto-shottys, AK's, SPAS-12, etc.). If someone would be so kind as to come up with a list of 1930's weapons, it'd be much appreciated. No hostile take-overs. Not yet, anyways. Please make appropriate characters (that means no elves, dragons, werewolves, or anything related to fantasy/future). You can RP missions for other people as a mid-ranking "officer" of a faction, but you cannot directly control that "officer" elsewhere. I (and only I) will advance your character in faction rankings. Obey all other RPR rules. AVAIABLE FACTIONS (this is where I take some liberties...) Italian Mafia: Your stereotypical group of Italian-accented, gun-toting, whiskey-loaded gangsters. (Hey, it's not my gfault America depicts the Mafia as this!) American Mob: THink Al Capone. Russian Mafia: Like the Itlian Mafia, but composed mainly of Russians. Angry Russians. (No offense to the Russians out there) Chinese Triad: The Triads as as violent as any other faction, ut slightly more subtle. Japanese Yakuza: Two Words: Whee, katana! But seriously, these are the Japanese gangs. Freelancers: Those that are freelancers belong to no specific group. They do jobs for the highest bidder, and their disposition towards other groups depend upon the characters. (I realize that during the 1930's, probably only the Italian and American Mobs existed. But the others are needed as well) CHARACTER SHEET: Name: Your character's name Nationality: Your character's nationality Faction: The faction your character belongs to Enemy Faction: The faction that your character dislikes (this can be left blank) Physical Attributes: Interesting stuff about your character's body (NOT that kind of stuff...) Personality: What your character is like, morally and emotionally Accomplishment(s): Things that your character is famous for (you can leave this blank) History: Your character's background (this can be left blank) My Character: Name: Raphael Leone Nationality: French Faction: Freelancer Enemy Faction: None Physical Attributes: Height: 6' 3", Weight: 126 lbs, muscular, dirty blond hair cropped short, sky-blue eyes, agile Personality: Cold, calculating, ruthless, emotionless History: Born to an Italian father and a French mother, Raphael quickly learned varying arts. He became an accomplished pianist and an even better shot. His sister was well-known for being beautiful, kind, and in the underworld, deadly with a knife. His father died when he was 12, his mother dying two years later of grief. Raphael inherited (sp?) everything, divided it with his sister, and sold everything off. He moved to America with about $4600, a tommygun in his suitcase, a Colt 1911 in a shoudler-holster, a .44 Magnum in his jacket, and a dozen knives and daggers hidden around. He took on varying jobs, and now lives in a Chicago apartment. Accomplishments: A well-known pianist in his hometwon, and an even better-known person in the underworld thanks to his father. Is famous for the "Red Prade" where he and five other Italians tore through a parade, winding up killing a dozen police men, two of the mayor's secretaries, and the mayor himself. Raphael was recognized for his long, blonde hair, which he later had to cut and then masquerade as a begger for two months until the heat subsided. I'll start the RPG as soon as a few more people join.
