king
/kiNG/
noun
1.
the male ruler of an independent state, especially one who inherits the position by right of birth


King. At the sight of that word, many things come to mind. Monarch, Idol, Royalty. However, as these words hold little to no meaning. The only word that elucidates the term "king" is Lifeline. Admit it, without the king, the country will fall into chaos, moral will be lost and rarely, a power struggle between brothers will ensue. We tell the story of 3 kings, struggling between a clash of ideals.

Long ago, this tale being perfectly placed after "once upon a time". There was a king, feared by his enemies and worshiped by his people. The source of his military strength was unknown, even by the people living in his kingdom. His captains and generals were able to form feats, seemingly impossible to an average human. Advanced intellect, enhanced combat prowess, weapons from thin air, these generals will suppress your expectations.

However, he knew his kingdom would fall eventually, even a great king like himself would meet his end soon enough. As a result, using his knowledge of the various pieces his generals have swore themselves on. He created imitations, originally creating one set, but settling on 3, as his three sons couldn't dare to witness anyone else inheriting the throne other than themselves.

What are pieces exactly? They act as a manifestation of the King's soul. A king stores a large quantity of energy within himself, but has no outlet to release it from. The pieces were created to give the power within a king a use other then just a decoration. The pieces serve as a contract between whoever decides to pledge loyalty to the king, as they are granted power, an exchange for the king having complete control over the individual's thoughts and actions. A piece holder will have to obey the king's every command, whether it is the making of a sandwich, or the killing of a fellow human being. There is no say against the king's command. Another thing you should watch out for before signing on is that, when the king has been slain. To protect the king piece from being decimated is to forcefully rip out the pieces from the other holders, taking their energy to safeguard the piece. However as a result, the human body will crumble as they have had their energy source removed from their body. In other words, if the king dies, his loyal subordinates will sacrifice themselves for the greater good of the kingdom, allowing the king to have an heir.

The struggle between the three brothers has been going on for eons, spanning to present day times. The Red, The White and The Black Kings have been fighting over control, with the only sense-able way to demolish a kingdom, is the knock it down, and when it gets up once more. Repeat.

Their only job is to survive. As the King acts as a lifeline for the rest of the pieces. If the king is starting out fresh, they will be raised by a person known as a minister. Even if kings don't have any abilities, they usually have enhanced intelligence or weapon proficiency to keep their pieces in line without having to raise their voice. Gender-fluent!


ImageImage

Acting as the second in command, the queen isn't limited to one specific ability group. They can be a master at an unorthodox ability, acting as the trump card of sorts. Seen as the main fighter along with the knight. Also gender-fluent!


Image
Image

Their abilities lie within the mind, telepathy, enhanced intelligence, predication. Not usually seen as the fighters of the group, but doesn't mean they can't fight when the situation calls for it. Bishops are unable to summon weapons, so they usually use pistols or knifes in conjecture with their mental prowess.


Image
Image

Knights are self-explanatory. Their abilities are about hitting hard, weapon summoning/mastery and enhanced physical expertise. Knights sometimes fill the role of an assassin, murdering the king before anyone can comprehend what has happened, invisibility and decoys for these specific cases.


Image
Image

The defense of the kingdom. Their abilities are all about defending the king, molecular manipulation, enhanced durability, shield generation. Rooks also have the ability known as castling. Taken directly from chess, rooks are able to teleport directly in front of the king, protecting him from a lethal hit in some situations. This ability leaves a rook deeply fatigued, so this method is only used when it is absolutely necessary.


Image
Image

The weaklings, the expendable. A king is allowed up to 8 pawns, aside from the normal 1 for the rest of the pieces. Pawns usually only gain 1 minimal ability, and as a result, don't mind the war in question unless their lives are threatened. Although, Pawns have the option to move up in rank. In either challenging the higher up to a duel, which never ends well, or if the piece dies, prompting for a replacement. There is also very special cases where someone who shows promise never started as a pawn, but it is unlikely.

✧Literacy - I'd call myself a pretty chill guy. Since everyone likes to go over the word limit, lets set it to a solid 300! :D

✦Reservations - Alright, The king and queen positions are audition. So I will be judging the character sheets on pretty-ness and swag. Please state that you are going to audition in the OOC. After careful consonance with my console, I've decided to make the roles reservation based. At the start, there will only be one bishop, one rook and one knight in the roleplay, one for each side. After every role is filled, there will be unlimited pawn roles and with approval from the master himself (P.S, it's me), I can upgrade a pawn into a piece. If you are reserving someone, state the piece and color that you'll be taking. (Oh, and faceclaim too!)

✧Time - People competing for audition roles will be expected to be finished at a set time I'll announce once enough people join. Reserved roles should be completed in 3 days after sending in a WIP, which I'll be expecting from everyone 48 hours after typing something in the OOC.

✦Fight Club - Okay. The usual, no bunnying, Mary Sues, Gary Stues, Hairy Qs, Pikachus, etc. Please don't fight among yourself in the OOC. Keep the feelings on each other on the down-low.

✧The disappearance of ______ - This is basic knowledge. Don't leave without giving me a notice prior. We can plan around your disappearance and I won't have to accidentally make your character fall off the Eiffel Tower.

✦Other - I couldn't really put this anywhere, but the white king is reserved by, Your's truly. Also, please choose appropriate FCs. The setting is very modern, and I can be very lenient on whether that guy from that one anime belongs in this roleplay or Game of Thrones. Also, the kings are actually different. The white king is a respected owner of a medium sized company, the black king is a well-known mafia leader and the red king is the owner of a cafe. Password is to put 3 dots at the end of your reservation, make them as small as you like. :3

First move.

Albus headquarters was filled with frantic screaming and panic. Orders, footsteps, yelling. The beautiful silence was ruined. In a specific area, a few transport trucks were hijacked and stopped by people that were out of the ordinary. Using unconventional methods and powers that seemed to belong in picture books. Of course, this concerned to white king, but not specifically because of the vandalized trucks.

Of course, the white king called for a meeting. Queen, Rook, Knight, Bishop. The pawns were to be informed later, well, if they choose to accept the task. As the pieces gathered in the console room. Zhou started with some opening statements. "I see that everyone is doing well. As you all might know, judging from the recent news article. A certain someone decided to commence an attack. Luckily, The black king was at least cautious enough to keep the power usage to a minimum. Thanks to one of the pawns, I can confirm this isn't an attack on the company itself. This is an attack on the white side. How interesting that the black side decides to go first when we are usually given the first move. With that, Zhou ended his statement. He wasn't going to decide the move by himself. As his subordinates deserve a say, especially considering how intelligent they all are.

Meanwhile. The black side has ordered these hijackings near The La Rouge Cafe. The bookstore and coffee shop owned by the red king himself. It is like all of the stars aligned for a fated meeting between the three sides. If it will be checkmate is a pointless question. The only thing in question is who will be in checkmate?

End turn.

ImageShe had heard about the attack, but she did not know the hard facts. With all the chaotic scrambling she couldn't get a lot of solid information. Besides, by the time a tale made it's way through the grapevine it's credibility was definitely worth questioning. It was best to hear from the King or those who directly witnessed the event. Thankfully the King had called upon the elite group. Yui smoothed out her school uniform and made her way to the designated area.

"I see that everyone is doing well. As you all might know, judging from the recent news article. A certain someone decided to commence an attack. Luckily, The black king was at least cautious enough to keep the power usage to a minimum. Thanks to one of the pawns, I can confirm this isn't an attack on the company itself. This is an attack on the white side. How interesting that the black side decides to go first when we are usually given the first move"

"As much as I hate it, if they're going to attack, we have no choice but to respond with even greater hostilities. I believe we should let them believe we're not going to retaliate... " Yui responded, biting the inside of her cheek. These discussions always weighed heavy on her morals, but she knew that the Black side needed to be stopped. There would always be violence until the White King prevailed over his brothers. Yui despised the Black King above all else.

Considering the Black king's occupation, she had no respect for him whatsoever. That kind of life was dirty and despicable. She ran her hand through her ebony hair, contemplating for a moment. She was an offensive player in this game, so she had to think wisely. Any planned attack would have to be thought out carefully. Yui could only maintain invisibility for a few minutes at a time, and she would have to wait five minutes before using the skill again. If she wasted a single second their entire plan could be unraveled. She had a general knowledge of everyone's abilities. The White King's elite lineup was a rather potent group, although she hated working with Rabbit. (Zeda's alias in case someone missed that everyone besides the King is supposed to use that at first..)

She absolutely hated the Rabbit's attitude. As much as Yui was dedicated to serving the White King, she did not forsake herself. She still enjoyed life, and did not wish to die. In fact, she is optimistic that she will be able to protect her King and live a fulfilling life, "Instead of doing something flamboyant, the best course of action would be to operate with discretion. We should strike quick, and strike them hard." She stated in a serious tone. Once she spoke her thoughts, her teal eyes shifted to each of the others. Her words resounded in her head and immediately Yui's body stiffened as if she'd seen a ghost. She just realized how assertive she had been, a sheepish expression enveloping her features. She knew that she was allowed to openly share her thoughts on the subject, but she had gotten a bit too into it. It normally wouldn't have been an issue, but she aimed to come across a bit more modest, at least in front of the King, "Uhm.... at least that's my opinion."

She looked to the others again, curious to see how they would respond to the news. She personally was enraged that they would dare attack anything belonging to Zhou. She owed her king a great deal, so any attack towards him or his belongings. The company was an extension of the King. She didn't even notice her fists clenching, or the fact that she was biting her cheek again, but the more she thought about the attack, the harder she bit down. If possible, she wished to obliterate the entire Black side, soon. She wanted this madness to end, it wasn't that she wasn't honored to serve her king fighting in his service, but she honestly wanted to see a day where he was no longer in danger. She desperately wished for a day when his brothers would be wiped from existence... Though she did wonder, what would happen to the surviving team's pieces and pawns when the power struggle was over? She had never asked before. Despite her curiosity, she found that ignorance was bliss. Will we be cast away or continue life this way...? I don't want to leave... I like it here.. It was as her thoughts saddened that she finally grew conscious of her fists, slowly releasing the built up tension in her fists. She hoped that no one else would have noticed, but she decided to not bank on it, given she that even she was unsure how long she had been doing it.

For quite some time, Ravenna listened attentively to the discussion, never bringing anything to the table yet. Not at least until someone could present a suitable opening which she could take.

The attack was rather brazen, based from what she was able to derive from the reports. And judging from the situation, it seems the enemy didn't hold back on the pleasantries either. It was a bold attack, utilizing each and every attacker's best aspect. Powers seemingly out of the page of some fantasy novel.

"As much as I hate it, if they're going to attack, we have no choice but to respond with even greater hostilities. I believe we should let them believe we're not going to retaliate... "

Their young Knight was the first to speak up. She had expected someone to suggest retaliation so Ravenna was quite pleased her intuition is on mark. Although there was a contradiction within that earlier statement, she decided to let it slide for now, waiting to see if she has anything to add.

"Instead of doing something flamboyant, the best course of action would be to operate with discretion. We should strike quick, and strike them hard. Uhm.... at least that's my opinion."

"A brazen attack taken with initiative...surely, you'll have to give them credit. The enemy has the gall to strike first and get away with it. I can imagine the boost in morale the enemy's allies would've acquired. Do you all know why that is?" Slowly and calmly, Ravenna started to speak up. Her small stature does not make much of an impression as a Queen so she rose from her seat and proceeded to walk towards the window where she can see the bustling lights of the city below.

"Because it is a proof of possibility. The fact that a coordinated attack was executed is proof that a fight against this faction is possible. The fact that they managed to get away with it on the other hand, proves that victory is possible. This is enough incentive for the enemy's allies to act. You could say that they now have the upper hand, in terms of morale that is." Ravenna then turns to their Knight, locking her eyes with hers. "So, say we choose to strike immediately. You will pit your own forces, still reeling from the psychological blow of this defeat against a force whose will is rather high to the point where they feel that they can wage a war against the world. I suppose I don't need to say what the outcome of that would be? Respond with hostility at the earliest opportunity and you risk splintering this force."

Finishing up that argument, Ravenna turns to the King to present her counter-proposal. "I propose we move our center of gravity somewhere closer to the heart of the city, somewhere that garners quite the amount of public attention. As this war is fought in secret, it will make it much more difficult for the opponent to make any rash actions against us. I believe with the company's current standing, this move in headquarters should be possible. If the enemy's taking an offensive approach, then it is best to start by reinforcing our defensive position."

"Once safety's assured, intelligence is next. Send out watchers to monitor where this enemy's getting their supplies. If we manage to find out, then we'll expose this secret and exploit this opportunity. Take away their ability to wage war and you inflict quite a blow on their psyche. Once the enemy's exhausted their capability, then comes the perfect chance to overwhelm them while retaining your fragrant image to the public eye." Ravenna takes a seat after presenting what she has to offer. Yet she wasn't quite finished yet.

"Or you can force them in a position that endangers the other side. By that, I'm talking about the Reds. You go for a bait and bleed; wait until these two exhaust themselves fighting each other and then you conquer them both. Two birds with one stone. It's your call." With that, Ravenna finished, waiting for any one of them to respond. Either an agreement or rebuttal. Mostly rebuttals but, it is this back and forth of words which keeps these otherwise dull meetings engaging for the vanity of the White Queen.

Phase end.

The surrounding chaos around them could only prove how intense this war is going on. Indeed, under the eyes of the normal people, everything still went on a seemingly monotonous and peaceful rotation. Little do they know that in the dark, a battle for power and survival is going on, bloodier than ever. The three factions raising their claws towards each other, with only one goal: absolute power. Sooner or later, their hands will be stained with each other's blood. A magnificent scene to be unfold, indeed.

When the King decided to summon the pieces, Shigeru knows right away that it is time for them to act. Standing with his back leaned against the wall in the director's office - their usual negotiation place, he was indulging himself in a book, as usual. But he still pay attention to what his King and his colleagues got to say. He can be certain that only the White faction is worthy enough of his service, because he got to work with people who can actually think, not some idiots who can only raise their swords and bark.

It seemed that the Black side has decided to make the first move and apparently, the target was their side. And true to the King's word, it was interesting that a bunch of misfits like the Black side could be brave enough to make the first move, though whether they're foolhardy to target their side or not is debatable. The young Knight, Yui, spoke first and suggested that they should strike back, to show that they aren't afraid and they won't just turn their tails and run. And Shigeru couldn't help letting out a slight chuckle. He acknowledges the strength and courage of Yui as a knight, but she's still young, so it isn't wrong to say that her thinking is still a bit naive.

And following up was their Queen, Ravenna. He has always had high opinion of her, thanks to her sharp thinking and analytical skills. She always give out good tactics and this time was no exception. It is crystal clear that the two ladies had had opposing ideas of how they should react to the situation. While Yui thinks that it is important that they should strike back, Ravenna believes that a good defense is what they needed to focus on first, and when safety is assured, they can deal a crushing blow.

This is why he Shigeru enjoys moments when they can plan tactics and decided their moves like this. Opposing ideas can be raised and all will have to agree on a best solution. But given to how calm and collected they all are, arguments almost never existed. They might have different traits, but it's imperative that they focus in what they have in common, so that they can respect each other - at least on the outside, and ensure that victory is certain. It's the way the White faction works.

"Know yourself, know your enemies. A thousand battles, a thousand victories." Shigeru closed his book and spoke up, "A famous tactician once said so. And it seemed that the gears had begun to swing on an opposing direction. We all need to be conscientious of how things will take a turn from now on. Our battles are getting more intense by the minute and we can never tell how would things turn out."

He turned his gaze to both the Queen and the Knight, "From a reliable source of information that I have within that side, I know how they would work. The Black side doesn't have many brains that can actually think like us, but their numbers made up for it. While tactics and strategies aren't what they're good at, some of their main fighters can actually pack quite a punch even if it is a rash attack. And like you said, Ravenna-san, their morale is their main driven force. Once they have banded together, I wouldn't say that it will be wise to carry out a direct attack on them. Unnecessary casualties are what we should reduce to the lowest rate."

"But I wouldn't say that we will just turn our tails and run away from them either. We are an intelligent side. We fight with grace and we can use our wits to outmatch our opponents. The moment we took a step back, only a fool wouldn't take a chance to take two steps forward." He said as he straightened himself up, "What I'm suggesting is while we focus a parts of our strength to defend against whichever moves that were made on us from other sides, we can also make our own moves. Waiting for the right moment, we can deal a blow against them with our own abilities. The best way to win a war is to know when to fight, when to retreat and when to do both."

Then, he turned to his King and began to induce his plans, "For now, we should continue to observe their movements. I myself will also keep contact with my source of information. Moving our center to a place where our enemies can't rashly took their actions is a good idea. Along with it, we can send our human force to slowly and steadily wreaking havoc their operation place, and retreat before they could know, so that we can demoralize them. Sometimes fighting in the style of a guerrilla can bring more success than a direct hit strategy. And as usual..." A twisted smirk appeared on his face, "...you can always rely on me if you don't want to stain your hands."

He gave Zhou a slight bow to show his respect, "The decision is yours to make, Your Majesty."

Re: Board Control

Posted! Hope it wasn't too bad. I didn't want to go into too much physical detail about surroundings until I know this world better. I don't want to assume anything and step on toes. lol

Re: Board Control

Cool, I'll get my post up sometimes later :D

Re: Board Control

Ayy. First post is up. Sorry about the considerably short length.

Re: Board Control

In the dark as you all are. I PM'ed Phantom a few days ago and hadn't gotten a reply yet...

Re: Board Control

Just wondering when will this start? I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just psyched to get started as everyone else seems to be. Are we short a role or something?

Re: Board Control

Yahallo~

I'd just like to introduce myself and say I look forward to roleplaying with everyone and that I hope we complete this, let's not let this die, ne? I'd hate to let down our GM!

Re: Board Control

I don't wanna sound rude but is there any news from Xiiver at all? I just hope that this doesn't die before it even started...

Re: Board Control

I apologize to everyone involved for my character taking so long to submit. I've been under the weather. I do however look forward to roleplay long with everyone. I am looking over all the character sheets now, and hope to develop a few plot twists with everyone sometime or another. While I am a little impersonal, I want everyone to know I am open to discussing character relationships in pm. Once I finish reading character sheets I will possibly send out a few pms myself to establish a base relationship if I get ideas while checking out the lineup.

Re: Board Control

Sorry, just waiting for a few people to finish their characters before I start.

Re: Board Control

Still waiting ~~

Re: Board Control

Hey!

I've decided to change face claim. It's been a nightmare finding good pictures of Amy, so Ive switched to Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail since she also fits my needs!
I hope this is alright :)

Image

Re: Board Control

Sorry all about my character taking so long, finals have got me in a loop. I'll finish my character this weekend and we can get this show on the road.

Re: Board Control

Hello~ Can I reserve the White Queen? I'll have to go with this color and FC would be: Alice from Pandora Hearts. Hope she looks modern enough to fit in.:

Image

Re: Board Control

Gosh, you really got me, Phantom T.T
But I'm not giving up. I'll gladly took the white bishop piece if it's totally fine :D
Though I'll have to change my FC if I were to take that role. I'll get it up later when I can access to a computer :)

EDIT: Shogo Makishima from Psycho-Pass

Image

Re: Board Control

Honestly, if not enough people join. I'll have every other side as an npc, and put everyone on one side. Reserved.

Re: Board Control

I'm perfectly fine with a white knight, if you'll allow it :) or do you feel like we need more on the red side?

Re: Board Control

@Xiiver @Chrian Blaire
The thing about the pieces is that...Okay I made this pretty confusing. The black side and rook piece has already been reserved. If you wanted a white piece, you would need to choose either the knight piece or bishop piece. If you wanted a knight piece, you will now have to only be on either the red side or white side.

@Idk
I've decided to make every role reservation-based, as I feel I'm driving people away who don't have time to make a sheet that may or may not result in nothing. If I have an absolute loathing of your character (Quite rare), I won't accept you. So, The queen and king roles have become reservation roles instead of audition roles.

Re: Board Control

I'd like to reserve a black knight! I had a really hard time choosing a face claim but I would like to have Amy Sorel from the Soul Calibur game if that's alright? :D
Image
I'd be using this colour aswell!
