A Domestic Arms Race

A Domestic Arms Race


Western Europe, 1922. Germany won the Great War, but the fatherland is holding on by just a thread, and inside the chaotic streets of Ireland an uprising has begun. The UK has been ground zero for civil conflict, meanwhile Spain is under martial law, and seems to be experimenting on its citizens in a very unpleasant manner.

349 readers have visited A Domestic Arms Race since Ulfhednar902 created it.




It's now been three years
since the end of the Great War,
and eastern Europe is a powder keg
ready to blow at any moment.
Former United Kingdom is on the
brink of destruction. Both Police
and Military march through the streets
attempting to impose their will on the
citizens of former United Kingdom, often
beating them with nightsticks,
gassing them, and raiding their homes
at will. The few surviving loyalists have
fled underground, doing what they can
to stay alive, and oppose the Reich.

Ireland has been a warzone since 1918,
and the chaos has not stopped.
The IRA is down to its last stand,
but has managed to thin the Reichs'
hold on both itself, and the former
United Kingdom. The citizens, however,
have paid the ultimate price, as
death and destruction has run rampant
from Mayo to Cork, and as far east at Meath.
The north is all that remains of free Ireland,
although if northern Ireland makes it
through this winter it would be a miracle
to what small bit is left of the free world.
Rations have become scarce, the water is
barely drinkable, and worst of all,
cigarettes are in impossibly short




Spain has faired the worst of all,
with the almost immediate surrender
of governing power over to the Reich.
Now referred to as "New Germany".
The Spanish people have been culled
near the point of extinction. Those
who don't spend their days laboring
for the Reich either find themselves
running for their lives, or staring
at the four walls of a concealed
gas chamber. Some of the Spanish
speak of a sort of laboratory built
underneath Castilla la Mancha,
experimenting on people, giving
them strengths, at the cost of
their souls, and eternal servitude
to the Fatherland. Those who
still fight are few and far between,
and without any means of
communication or unification,
Spain will burn on.


The Soviets and their allies lie
in wait, watching from all
directions, taunting us with
their power. The USSR to the
north and the east,
The Peoples Republic Of
America to the west. They
watch as our cities burn, as
our innocent are slaughtered,
waiting, for the resistance to
either succeed or be snuffed
out entirely.




Each of you has received a telegram from an unknown source, stating only your name, a time, and the name of a small village in Iceland. Each of you being members of your respective resistances in your areas. (Londonderry, south London, Birmingham, Leeds, Salamanca, Gibraltar) You will stow away on a cargo flight, arrangements have been made to get you to and from the meeting place. The rest, is up to you. just keep in mind, this may very well be humanitys last stand against tyranny.

James McAvoy

xx(Jensen Ackles)xx

James knew a very different ireland when he was growing up. It was a beautiful, prosperous place. Then the war. It seemed almost surreal at first, not knowing what was going to happen next. Until the call for young men to defend their land was made by the Irish Government. It took the Reich three years just to finally land on Irish soil. It took an additional 3 for them just to take the south. Most of James' family is dead, killed during the 8 year conflict. James is the last surviving member of his IRA battalion, and the last living member of the McAvoy family.

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.


Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!

Mobs can be automated spawns, like rats and bats, or full-on NPCs complete with conversation menus. Use them to enhance your player experience!
