So this is my first time doing this and i didn't know if i should have posted this in the Modern Section or here in the Miscellaneous Section so i'm doing it here. If there are Area's in which i could improve please tell me and i will do my best! The Background The year is 2010, 50 years after World War 3 had occurred and Nuclear Missiles had landed in every country. The Radiation had finally cleared and Technology was booming. Though one thing had changed in the world, Military Companies full of Mercenaries had popped up. The Military Companies were groups of people who were Pardoned by the new United Nations, they would be allowed to build their HQ anywhere on the planet so long as they didn't disrupt the United Nations Projects. There are 4 Military Companies that are known to the world along with some others but these particular 4 where the largest MC's throughout the world, though all 4 were based in the USA. These 4 Companies names are The Devils of Blood, The Gorsk Mercenaries, The Peace Keepers, and finally The Shadows of Death. These 4 companies are the main sources of employment and weapons. They were always hired for public operations but who's to say they didn't have private and silenced operations either? The Setting The place is Los Angeles, California, the first private operation in which all 4 Main Military Companies and a few minor one's were active. The Operation was Code Named "Shadows under Shadows". Each group had different objectives and they were all located in one place. One of the United Nations Research Facilities, the place where one of the United Nations most prominent Projects were being held. The surrounding area had been cleared of Civvies for 5 miles wide so that they didn't get dragged in. Who You Are You are one of the people/soldiers selected by your company to carry out your objective for your respective company. All you were told was to follow orders without questions, if you complete your objective the MC that you are working for will be paid very much, and that should you abandon your objective you will be Shot on Site.

They tend to make everything they do flashy or explosive to get their name out in whatever operation they are in whether it is public or private. They are rumored that they named themselves The Devils of Blood because they partake in bloody rituals since they reportedly started in Africa before coming to the USA. Their base is located somewhere underground in Denver, Colorado, not even the UN can find it if they tried. The Gorsk Mercenaries: The Gorsk Mercenaries are Russian Mercenaries that are trying to restore the Strength and Popularity for Mother Russia, they are led by a mans whose dreams for Mother Russia are almost fanatical, his second in command is his only Daughter who usually participates in Objectives and Missions than leading the others, though everyone in The Gorsk Mercenaries treats everyone in it like family. They focus more on open combat and Hacking. It is reported that their base is located somewhere in Alaska. (Only one person can choose to become the Leader of The Gorks Mercenaries's daughter, must be a female character obviously) The Peace Keepers: This is an Erratic company that never stays in one place, no-one has managed to dig up anything on them, just that they sport the Highest Count for Public Missions Completed and that they are good with Martial Arts and Long-to-Short Range combat. Their base has not been reported or found because every time their Missions are completed a Helicopter picks them up and it leaves Radar Range. The Shadows of Death: A very secretive company that focuses more on Silent Combat, Stealth, Long Range, Hacking, and if needed Martial Arts. They have reportedly the highest number of Private Missions Completed. They're base also hasn't been found and nothing is known about them except that they are deadly and should be avoided.
