  1. IC Thread

    Long before the dawn of man, strife was already a major component of life. Where ever creatures shared a peace of land with each other, it was just a matter of time until a struggle for resources would ensue. Man was no different, showcasing a perverse fascination with violence. Man and civilization brought forth more innovative ways of taking human life than any other function needed for survival.

    There are more ways of killing a man than there are ways of making bread, or making love. And while the latter two are quite limited in scale, man has gone beyond imagination with his capacity to destroy life, with one push of a button. Between uncontrollable crime in the streets, and escalating war on the borders, it was all just a matter of time.

    From the ashes, a new world was born. The surviving nations finally realised that man's unstoppable appetite for destruction must be contained. A ban on all firearms was strictly enforced, and just as the sword gave way to the gun, the gun gave way to the sword, leaving the authorities to carry the hope of their nations on the tip of a spear.

    Little did they know that the self-destructive nature of man could never be stopped. There's not enough love in this world, not enough money, to prevent this ancient circle from coming round again. When the time is ripe, evil will rise. Personified in our case, with The Gardener. This is his town, his land, a God-Forsaken place where our tale begins. And as many ways as there are of killing a man, there are equally as many ways of telling this old tale of strife.

    Twenty Men is the unwritten law of this land, so any gang in the province has a chance to challenge The Gardener, and take the town. That isn't to say that a gang cannot hold more than twenty men, but only twenty men may engage in battle at a time.​


    If you don't recognise the intro, Welcome to the world of Bunraku! Things are a little different this time though, so lets get started shall we?

    Our story takes place in the Fallen City of Vegas, the leading gang, under control of The Gardener is known as The Green Army. Soldiers dedicated to his cause to an insane degree.

    Our story, much like many of these stories, starts on a train...​


    Basic Rules of Posting

    1. Spacing. I cannot express how much it bothers me to have posts that are three paragraphs long jammed into one long paragraph. Spacing helps make posts easier to read and understand.

    2. Punctuation. I'm more relaxed on, but it's still really good to have. It makes posts far more comprehensible.

    3. Spelling. I know a good deal of our members are not native english speakers, and I understand minor mistakes, I have them too, but big consistant spelling issues drive me up the wall.

    4. No God-Modding. I will throw a shovel at you if you do this, and kill your character in the most violent way I can come up with. If you must control someone's character, ask permission first, or work together on it.

    5. One-Liners Must Die. A full paragraph minimum please, preferential to at least two, but I understand that sometimes you get stuck and you can't think of what to write.

    6. Be respectful, and have fun. That's pretty much it. If there are other issues I can't think of presently, I'll modify the rules, and ask you to stop. I'm usually pretty easy going though, so there shouldn't be too many problems.

    Title: The Gambler




    A wanderer, The Gambler goes from place to place playing cards. Sometimes he wins, sometimes he loses. He usually wins though. He found himself heading to Vegas after receiving a mysterious invitation to play a tournament.

    Pretty much always wears sunglasses as bright light hurts his eyes, and uses a cane because of an injury he took on his left leg.
  3. Okay, so there are gangs running the city? I'm not quite following. Can you clear it up a little?
  4. Basically, the government of each country has so little control over their own lands that while it's still the government, they rely on whoever puts themselves into power to keep control over the area. If things go to absolute hell, the government could potentially step in, but they prefer not to.
