    1954 (changed cause there's already a WWII rp)
    War is declared in Vietnam. Boys and men are drafted into the service, as are some 5,000 war dogs. Platoon 49 are tasked with finding the lost Platoon 16th. With the aid of their dogs, they have to make it through the front lines of war. It's dangerous, mines and shelling till dusk to dawn, and with the enemy knowing the area around them better, some of them won't make it home. But to leave Platoon 16th alone in the Jungles would be too tragic a loss. It's a story of brotherhood, strength, bravery and learning that the world is getting to be a dangerous place.
    So why is this mission so important? It has the president's son in it, and it is rumoured to have fallen right into enemy hands.

    Rules
    -No god modding
    -Your character can die in this, but you can make new characters
    -You can't kill somebody else's character without permission. But they can die in shellings and gunfire
    -Dogs can't talk
    -Don't leave anyone out
    -Please post one paragraph in third person. Which means:

    'Tommy ran along the creek, guiding his dog Sue towards the first aid tent. He didn't know what was to become of him.'

    Like that.
    -OOC stays here!
    -This rp is not all historically accurate, but it is based. Please no godzillas running around or lasers shooting from your eyes. That'd be cool though.
    -The dog is your best friend
    -For now we are just rping the third squad. If more than 5 join this rp, we will do the other three

    History
    He was raised in Brooklyn, New York with his mother and two little twin siblings. He faced racism and segregation, he didn't like it but he did his best to cheer up his family. That's the kind of guy Pierce is; he doesn't let people's bigotry get to him. It does affect him though, especially when it came to the draft. he figured if they didn't value him as a citizen, why would they value him as a soldier?
    But like everyone else he had no choice. He went through vigorous training with a dog named Plato. Once he finished his training, the two were put into the 49th Platoon.
    About the dog

    Dog's Name
    Plato
    Gender
    Male
    Breed
    German Shepard
    Personality
    Quirky and resilient, he's got plenty of energy. He's very protective of his handler, and strong. Smart and quick, he fits his role very well. Like any war dog, he'd die to save his handler. He's been known to alert the entire squad of the 49th, which is broken up into four squads. His is the third squad of the 49th Platoon.

    History
    Donated to the war effort by his owners, the Thomasons, he was trained as a war dog with handler Pierce Kenzie.​

    [​IMG]
    History: Born in the mountains of Eastern Tennessee, he and his sister grew up listening to the stories of veterans of both World Wars and Korea. Because of this, he formed an favorable impression of the military early in life and when Vietnam flared up, he was all too ready to go to war.

    About the dog

    Dog's Name: Grant
    Breed: Beagle
    Personality: Hyper and friendly to his handler and the other dogs, Grant is just as determined and energized as Samuel to finish the job. In a fight, he can become quite vicious as he attacks any NVA or Vietcong who come too close to his teammate. On days off duty, however, Grant acts almost as he's stilled a puppy, rushing about as he plays with the other dogs and hoping on Samuel's lap to be petted and scratched behind the ear.
    Picture:

    History: Was raised by Samuel since he was a puppy. Samuel was allowed to have him trained and brought to Vietnam as his partner.​

  4. Right you are. Accepted.
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  5. So given the facts that you said that the RP would be based on the war but not fully accurate and that you included gender in the human character creation part, does that mean you're welcoming female characters in combat roles?
     
  6. I am allowing one
     
  7. Huh, interesting.
     
  8. Under the condition that she mulans it
     
  9. Of course, it's only proper that our female comrade goes full on Mulan even if there aren't any Chinese around here excluding possible communist agents, and we all know what we do to communists.
     
  10. would you be interested in a one on one with this? Getting no bites.
     
  11. >no bites

    Your bait just wasn't good enough, I guess. Either way, sure, though it's been so long since I've done a one on one that I'm rusty, so be warned.
     
  12. Guess not. Ah well, whatcha gonna do?

    No worries. I'll get to making a post in just a second.
     
  13. Watching for it.
