This is a roleplay about military corruption in a post-apocalyptic dictatorial country, torn by war, both foreign and civil. You are a part of the firing squad in Gamma Legion 5502, an elite group of soldiers in the Imperial Army. The other men in Gamma Legion 5502, when the Officers are not around to punish them, refer to your team as 'The Crimson Painters'. This was spawned off the fact that it is your duty to take POWs to the back sheds and execute them, commonly called 'Painting the Sheds'. You and your team realize just how corrupt the system is when one of the men you are about to execute manages to get the gag out of his mouth and yells that he will get the General his money, he just needed time. You killed him and the others scheduled to be executed with him. After letting the words play through your heads, your squad leader suggests something never before dared- mutiny. It's time to put an end to General Ginko and the Zeid Empire. Years ago, the countries of Earth thrust themselves into an arms race. Words were said, blood was shed, and people were dead. Nuclear war sprung out, leaving the human race all but destroyed. It was rebuilt into four giant countries: The Comachi Empire, ruled by Italian descendants, The New English Republic, The Borchevik Empire, ruled by descendants of Russian nobility, and the Zeid Empire, in whose military you are employed, ruled by a line of the most ruthless an cunning men of all time. They had to be. You killed the leader, you became the leader. The current leader was Chojo Manki Zeid. A man without mercy, CMZ slaughtered thousands to get to where he is. Even worse is his top military advisor, General Ginko. As a baby, he killed his siblings so he could get all his mothers milk. He was always a very corrupt man, bribing his teachers to pass school. And now it seems he has been using his power over the military to extract money from citizens. Time to stop that. Rules: No super powers, magic abilities, future seeing, etc. Nothing explicit, if you want to get that way take it to the Mature Forums. If you have anything you can add to the backstory, let me know, the more story behind it the more it comes alive. At least try to use proper grammar (Exceptions will be made for those who have to use shitty software). Multi charactering is fine. If you have any questions, PM me about it! When you introduce your character, you don't have to fill out a form, just include those things into the post. A good description, a little psych profile maybe, this, that, the other thing. Basic stuff. you can get more into detail later, or do a tell-all now. Alright, here's the kick off post: "Alright team, what do you think?" Ajax asked his team, as he was disassembling his rifle to clean it, arriving from the target practice range. "I think it's time we stopped all this corruption and put and end to this regime of blood and terror." Cmdr. Ajax was a tall, averagely muscular man, about 6'3", 198 lbs, and a deadeye when it came to sniper rifles. He was wearing a black tank top, and blue jeans, his red beret on his head, as always. He took it off and ran his hand through his short, spikey black hair and put it back on. "I know it's a heavy thought, but killing innocent civilians is just wrong." He looked up at his teammates, awaiting their response to his suggestion.
