Secret Society RP (OOC thread)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Cornixpes on Tue Oct 02, 2007 2:37 pm

I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing a modern RP based on a highly secret organisation that is in danger of being uncovered. I think it would be fun (ignoring the cliches) if the society was incredibly influencial in current affairs and has a certain degree of control over society. I want to play the part of a some guy who accidentally uncovers the society and realises what they are doing. I think it would be cool if the society seeks to eliminate him and he has to go on the run and figure out a way of bringing them down.

Anyone who wants to join in could RP as people who simultaneously uncover the organisation and we could help each other out and team up against its menace (unless there are any good ideas for different parts). Any takers?

Awesome. Well I'll start it as soon as we get one or two more people, then more can join when they want. Yep, the more on the run the better. It'll be interesting to RP a character that is constantly at risk of being captured so has to drop off the grid altogether. Here's a quick overview of what I am thinking at the moment (including my character):

---
MY CHARACTER
Name: Andrew Oldfield
Age: 28
Origin: Born in Britain, living in America.
Description: Standing at roughly 5'11'' and with an ex-military muscular build Andrew looks quite athletic. He is generally unshaven and his brown hair is usually cut very short. He has a strong jawline and steel grey eyes adding to his almost intimidating appearance. However, he is not as intimidating as he looks, he is very friendly and usually a cheerful and outgoing individual. Due to his absorption in his work he is usually wearing an old shirt and plain jeans.
History: Andrew was born in Britain and from an early age showed considerable prowess in finding things that were not meant to be found. Before he was even interested in computers he liked historic stories, and spent hours researching topics of interest. When he got into computers he unfortunately nursed his dark side and became a hacker of some talent for a few years, before seeing the light and going to university to study computer science. He soon dropped out after being head-hunted by the military, and became an intelligence officer of relative importance for a number of years. He is now working in America for a security firm researching threats.

---
THE SOCIETY
I'll start the RP with me finding out about the society, but it doesn't have to be just me, other people wishing to start their characters by finding out as well can do if they want. I'm thinking that the name 'The Brotherhood' is a good one, I want them to be full of powerful individuals from all over the world. These individuals may seem like they are operating with their own agendas but in reality they are all bent on one thing; total control. They are carefully and steadily contorting the media, politics, the military and society in general to their wicked way. They are particularly in favour of implementing so many laws and technologies that eventually the general population of the civilised world will have little to no freedom.

MY CHARACTER
Name: Scott Abbott
Age: 51
Origin: Born in Califronia, living in Washington DC
Physical Description: Scott holds himself at an honorable 6 feet. He looks a decade younger than he is, but has recently developed a nasty set of bags beneath his eyes from lack of sleep. Skin: Slightly tanned white
His Story: Scott was born to a rich, and influential family in Los Angeles, CA. He attended the local private school, known to be a prime supplier ot ivy league schools. In tenth grade, two year before being able to graduate, his parents (and he as well) lost all their money to their fraud accountant. Devastated, he was pulled out of the school and sent to a public school where he did not fit in at all, and barely managed to live through his next two years. He finally graduated and was excepted to Harvard for which he had to take out multiple loans and earn many scholarships. He graduated Summa Kum Laude, worked in politics for a few years and went to Yael Law where he graduated fourth in his class. He proceeded to work in major law firms for a few years to pay off his loans and eventually return to politics. At the age of 38, he managed a Congressional campaign. They were losing badly and he threw his lot in with his father who knew people who knew people. With the mysterious help of his father, he won, becoming congressman Walter's chief of staff. At 42, he ran for Senate and was elected, with the help of his father's "friend:" a 65 year-old man man named David Lattamore who had taken his father's place as President of the (Nam of Society) Club. Scott became a member of the club only to discover it was far more than a simple club; it was a secret society of influential people around the world who smashed, grabbed, and stabbed to take power.
8 years later, he directed Senator Walter's presidential campaign and made Seantor Water President Walter. He is now the White House Chief of Staff and the second oldest, second most influential member of the society.

let me know if this is ok.

Sounds good, looks like you'll be playing the part of the bad guys then! We'll wait for a bit while we finalise the name for the society and other bits and pieces and by then we should have a few people ready to play :).

The Brotherhood is cliche but I couldn't think of anything else at the time. If you could come up with a different name that would be cool. I was thinking that the operation to eliminate those who know about the society could be called something as well; Operation/Project Panthera sounds quite good.

Any more people want to take part? The more the merrier, it's going to be good fun!

something like "Knights of the ____" or "Knights of __________" or "_____ti" (like the Illuminati)

when we start it though we should probably mak a new topic to esperate the actual RP from us preparing the RP
EDIT: how about "Knights of Selar"

i dont kow. we just need some gibberish word that sounds cool

I agree with making a new topic, I'll do that as soon as we're ready to start and I'll try and rename this one to the OOC thread. Knights of Selar sounds good, I'm not sure if it has any meaning, but its sophisticated and kinda ancient-sounding. If we don't come up with anything else we can go with that one because it gives us a nice bit of room to work with.

EDIT: Awesome Ryu, looks like we'll be working together then!

Come on there must be some more people out there who want to give this one a shot, it's going to be great fun! Ideally we could do with another person on the Secret Society team but I don't mind having more people on the good side if that's what they want.
