Before I get into what this RP is about, I shall tell you a small story about how I came up with it; Recently, I took a school trip to the south of France, to see Roman monuments and ruins in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. It went pretty well, but on the way back, my iPod Classic's HDD crashed, so I was left with only my PS Vita for listening to music. However, the only thing I had on my Vita was, aside from games, the OST of Persona 3 FES and Persona 4. Suddenly, as the TGV was speeding alongside the absolutely beautiful mountains in the countryside, with Persona in my ears, Romans and medieval France on my mind, and reading a book on spies, I had an idea for a Persona inspired RP, in a fantasy setting. So, after reaching Paris, having a dinner of sushi and boarding the train to head back to my home-region of Normandy, I started writing the first thing that came to my head was regarding the setting (which, if the RP gets interest, will definitely be expanded upon). With the story of my school trip aside, here's what I wrote, and the music I was listening to when I wrote it. It's a bit short, but I was incredibly tired when I wrote it and I needed sleep as soon as possible... Feel free to ask any questions regarding the setting and RP and I'll be happy to answer them. I know this post is a bit light in terms of explanation, but I prefer to either surprise people or let them know about things they feel that they need to know through answering questions. EDIT: Some background... We are currently in the Minontone era, thus named as our current leaders, the High Consuls of the Praesidium, rule from the city of Minontone. The Praesidium is the current ruling body of a stretch of land known as United Republic of Armand. In recent years, the discovery of a mineral called Yosaoka which possesses the ability to power groundbreaking machinery; the most famous use being in the Gripen&Co. Automatized Rail Transport, most commonly called by the more simple name of "train". The new technologies springing from this discovery have industrialized many of the lands of Armand, especially close to the current capital of Minotone, but large swathes of our country's territory remain relatively rural and especially technologically undeveloped, though most towns have at least a small station that connects them to the extensive rail system built by the Praesidium and their main contractor, Gripen&Co.. On the subject of the Praesidium, they are an organization of which the information of their origins is elusive. They took power from the old monarchs of the Armand kingdoms around ninety-nine years ago during an age of strife and established a so-called republic, where anyone can run for the position of High Consul (of which there are no more than two), though many people wonder if the candidates aren't actually people chosen by higher-ups in the Praesidium as many citizens who run for office have a tendency of failing to even become a candidate. Nonetheless, for all of the Praesidium's ruling, the people of the URA have remained satisfied with whichever High Consuls are elected for that year. For all of the years since Armand's kingdoms were united, the economy has remained stable, peace has been kept, crime has been low and overall, times have been good, in large part due to the Praesidium's powerful methods of keeping the peace. One of these is the Minontone Officer's Academy, a school in the capital where youths considered a present or future threat to the peace are sent, where they must remain until graduation. While there, aside from typical education, students are assigned various duties in the surrounding areas of the capital with regards to holding the order. You, cherished reader, are one of those considered a current or possible threat to the peace of Armand and sent to the Academy... OOC IS HERE.
