The Syndicate is a criminal organization only recently migrating to the US after being pushed out of China and Japan. They believe in honor and tradition above all else, even the all mighty dollar. A dishonorable dog will be cut down and replaced by one of the thousands of waiting, eager warriors that wish to join the Syndicate. This is not to say that the Syndicate doesn't use modern weapons. They use fire arms only when provoked to, and using one on someone who wishes to engage in hand to hand or melee combat is viewed as dishonorable. Be honorable, be courageous, be a criminal, and be a brother to the Syndicate. ------- So this is a Modern RP where you start as foot soldiers for the criminal organization called the Syndicate. The Syndicate has set up but is still expanding in the US since it was pushed out of China and Japan. Honor is a key stat in the RP. The higher your honor the more likely promotion is and some higher ups will only associate with you if your honor is high enough. Combat is based on a rather simple D20 system, with progression in the melee and fire arm aspects of combat. Your only allowed to carry one fire arm, and two melee weapons.
