Introduction


DARK CRUSADE - CHAPTER ONE


Image

The year is 2023.

It has been five years since the Zero Requiem. Since everything changed. Since one man, a dark prince, a demon come in mortal disguise, changed the world. Since Empress Nunnally took power of the Holy Britannian Empire.

When Lelouch died, he thought that he had won. That his change had been permanent, successful. He was so very, very wrong.

The Britannian Empire has become corrupt. Power-thirsty generals, manipulative Knightmare pilots, and greedy politicians have subverted the rule from Nunnally to themselves - and all have been controlled by a mysterious force, a man behind the scenes who wants to control the entire world. But who it is, no-one knows.

These corrupt men of power have decided - or, perhaps, been instructed by this mysterious man - that they will lead a new crusade, the likes of which mankind has never seen before. They have convinced, through a network of lies running through the entire bureaucracy, Nunnally to declare that Britannia is to take over the entire world. Britannia's military forces are mobilising, their vast legions of men and equipment readying for war once more.

Their first target is a symbol, the site of their greatest defeat, a way of proving to the world that they shall not be held back by shadows of past disasters, specters of the catastrophic Black Rebellion.

Japan.


------------------------


Of course, the Britannians were not alone in their problems.

The United Federation of Nations were having their own problems. In the wake of the Zero Requiem, they were left scattered and confused; previously, they had been trying desperately to broker a peace with Emperor Lelouch before he invaded, and after their administration was suddenly freed by Nunnally immediately after the Requiem, the difficulty Kaguya had with re-organising the various member countries allowed the elite to grab power, land and titles for themselves, setting up their own sovereign nations seperate from the UFN.

In the wake of this, Chairwoman Kaguya decided that the only functional solution to keep her organisation as a coherent force was to re-absorb these new nations. After two years of deliberation wth her advisors, she decided to declare an all-out war on the entirety of what had been the UFN. Arming her forces with F.L.E.I.A. bombs and vast numbers of Knightmares, she declared that any resistance to her invasions would be met with annihilation. Disgusted by the ruthlessness of her actions, the Black Knights broke off from her forces, declaring themselves an independent organisation once more. Thusly, the UFN built their own armies, using the leftover Chinese equipment for their primary forces.

With the Britannian Empire looming over them like the shadow of a mighty dragon, they are deploying their forces to Japan, ready for combat. Whether they win or lose, Japan shall find itself covered in the blood of the UFN's enemies by the end of this conflict.


------------------------


"The Black Knights have returned."

These are the words that the entire world fear to be declared.

The Black Knights, having broken off from the UFN, are now a fully independent faction. Their leader, Zero, disappeared to Britannia shortly after the seperation from the UFN, and did not return for several years. What occured in Britannia, only a very few people know for sure.

During Zero's absence, Kyoshiro Tohdoh took over the leadership of the Black Knights. Assisted by Kallen Kozuki, they set up their headquarters aboard the Ikaruga II - a gift from the UFN, which they had taken with them upon seperation - and bided their time, acting as international police, bringing down brutal dictatorships in the deepest parts of Africa and Eastern Europe with unimaginable ruthlessness. Some were displeased and accused the Black Knights of becoming power-hungry sell-outs under their temporary leader, but Tohdoh felt that he was doing the right thing, and fought on in Zero's name.

However, even as the Black Knights battled around the world in the name of justice, the hearts of the leadership remained in Japan, and after another year, they decided that they needed a permanent base. So they formed a treaty with the UFN; they were allowed to set up shop in Okinawa, and were given full authority to deploy in Japan, on the condition that they did not attempt to invade the UFN. Chairwoman Kaguya's lieutenants were displeased with this agreement, but Kaguya allowed it, as a favour to Tohdoh, who she had had many dealings with during the Black Rebellion.

And in 2022, the ever-enigmatic Zero returned, taking leadership back from Tohdoh in a ceremony, to the cheers of the Black Knights around, as he declared how proud of Tohdoh he was and that the Black Knights were heroes, each and every one of them. No-one ever suspected that their Zero was not the same one who had acted during the Requiem...


------------------------


Of course, that is not to say that C.C. had remained completely silent through all this. Quite the opposite, in fact; while the political machinations of the Britannian Empire and the debacle of the UFN and Black Knights was occuring, she too was preparing for war.

She has been alive for far longer than any other creature in existence, and knew what to expect. She knew what was happening while the cogs of the world turned, and she knew what was to come. She knew that it was only a matter of time before the world's forces went marching back to a brutal and possibly endless war. Still carrying Lelouch's original vision of a free world, she decided - as he had - to start with Japan.

So she created the Crimson Rose organisation, She acquired Knightmare Frames from some old friends she had made over her long life, and recruited from the population of Japan.

Since then, she has led a guerilla war against the UFN occupation of Japan. However, she knows that the world is about to explode, and she quietly prepares for the day when she must fight against Britannia once more...


------------------------


Four factions will clash in Japan. Four organisations, each with immense power, each convinced it is in the right.

From the land's rulers in the United Federation Of Nations come the forces of their new armies, wielding immense numbers of Knightmare Frames and an army of hundreds of thousands of men, with millions more waiting in China for rapid deployment if things get too chaotic in Japan.

From the vast Britannian Empire come their sophisticated Knightmares and devastating armies, armed with the most advanced technology in the world. Their forces come with a near-fanatical devotion to their Empress, ready to fight and die for the glory if their Empire.

C.C. has deployed her limited forces too, relying on the will of the population and ties through every layer of society for victory. She fights in the memory of Lelouch, the only human being who has ever truly cared about her, and knows that he smiles down at her from heaven.

The enigmatic Zero has sent in his best men into the fray, led by the man himself. His tactical genius has given his men great faith in their ability to win, and Zero will not hesitate to burn the entire world to achieve victory over the other factions.

A Dark Crusade has begun, and it can only end with the total victory of one faction. But the question is... who will achieve their objective?

And who will die trying?

RULES


Golden:
The GM's word is final on EVERYTHING.

0:
These rules are subject to change at any time.

1:
No l337 speak. EVER.

2:
BE NICE TO EVERYONE. I don't care who you are, or how entitled you think you are, but play nice. If you're being a pain in the ass, expect to get kicked out of the RP.

3:
For obvious reasons, this being a post-R2 RP, there are going to be MASSIVE spoilers for the end of Code Geass. Unless you've finished the series, or do not intend to watch it in the near future, or know how it ends already, I would recommend watching the end of R2 and then starting here.

4:
No overpowered characters. If your character is unbalanced, I will order you to fix it. Failing to comply will result in me kicking you out of the RP. Don't worry, I've inadvertently made overpowered characters too. If you act civilly and fix what I point out, I'll be more than happy to have you.

5:
Keeping that in mind, no crying 'Mary Sue!' over anyone's characters. The GMs will be the judges of that. If you believe someone's characters are overpowered, PM me and I'll take a look at it, then make the call.

6:
Please try to differentiate your characters and make them unique. Look over everyone's profiles before making your own.

7:
Don't use the same pictures as someone else does, regardless of whether it's for the person or for the Knightmare. I hate it when that happens.

8:
I'll try not to be a Nazi, but please, keep your grammar in check.

9:
No auto-hitting. You can fire as many shots as you like, but please don't put in your post that it connected. Give them a chance to dodge.

10:
In the same vein, you can't dodge everything that's sent your way.

11:
The laws of physics still apply here.

12:
ALWAYS USING CAPSLOCK IS ANNOYING. EVEN WITH CRUISE CONTROL, YOU STILL NEED TO STEER, DUMBASS.

13:
Romance is highly encouraged, but once things start getting hot and heavy, move it to PMs.

14:
The GMs will try to stay within these rules, but can breach them if necessary.

15:
Have fun!




And if you've read this far, I have three things to say to you.

Firstly, thanks! I put a lot of effort into this roleplay.

Secondly, please put YES, YOUR MAJESTY at the end of your character profile so that I know that you've read this.

Thirdly...

Welcome!

A chain of explosions broke the cold stillness of the morning. An instant later, gunfire cracked through the air, accompanied by the buzzsaw-like sound of Chaos Grenades, the fizz of VARIS rifles and the roar of Hadron cannons.

A white-coloured Knightmare dived behind a wall under a hail of gunfire from a squad of Gun-Rus, spraying blindly over its cover.

Its pilot swore loudly. "This, C.C., is not how I planned to spend my Saturday morning!" he shouted into his radio, glancing at the pink Knightmare a few hundred feet away.

C.C. dodged with practiced ease, guiding her Knightmare to the shelter of a half-tumbled building and crouching there. She gave a calm sort of laugh at the man's comment, shaking back her streaming emerald hair.
"Relax," she advised calmly. "You make it sound like I planned to have a gun-fight."

"Did you?" Kohaku called over his speaker as he, too, rolled his Knightmare away into shelter. "I wouldn't put it past you."

C.C. made no move to answer the Knight, and Kohaku did not try to press it. His personality simply did not allow for such things.

"Do you have a plan?" C.C. asked their companion, watching the little red blips of enemy forces moving around on her screen.

"Yeah," Valentine said. "Hide. If we can get out of their sight and I deploy ECM, we might be able to give them the slip and grab the wings in peace."

Another hail of bullets hit his craft, and he returned fire. "Oh, and it has the advantage of, you know, us staying alive."

C.C. gave a rich, sarcastic laugh at Valentine's last comment.
"You mean it has the advantage of you two staying alive."

"Of course, C.C., you are in no danger," Kohaku whispered. "But is that not an advantage?"

C.C. frowned slightly.
"I suppose so. Alright, everyone hunker down. We'll go with Valentine's plan."

Valentine nodded. "Other side, into the warehouse!" he shouted, throwing three Chaos Grenades out behind them. "Run!"

The Chaos Grenades went off, spraying bullets in every direction, shattering windows and tearing through Gun-Rus like they were rice paper. Valentine heard a few projectiles collide with his craft, but there was little damage.

C.C. and Kohaku both reacted in an instant, their reflexes tuned and tight for battle. As one, it seemed, they shot out of cover and ran for the warehouse, Kohaku very carefully placing himself between C.C. and the Chaos Grenades. A pointless gesture - the woman was in no danger - but cursed as he was with a flaming servant complex, he had little choice in what he did in this situation.

Only when they reached the shelter of the warehouse did Kohaku move from her side. While she shot deeper into the warehouse, he remained near the door, watching for Valentine.

Valentine ran for his life.

Gunfire pounded around him, and smoke flew up into the air, but two smoke grenades concealed his escape, and most of the shots missed. He dived into the warehouse, skidding to a halt beside C.C.'s Knightmare.

However, he heard a 'click', and looked to the side of his craft.

And saw an armed Chaos Grenade rolling towards him.

One word escaped his mouth.

"Oh."

"Kohaku, run!" C.C. commanded, and Kohaku obeyed in a instant. The man did not try to protect C.C. this time. She was immortal, invincible, and had ordered him - the mortal - to go. He fled from the warehouse and took shelter behind another building, only able to pray that an enemy would not find him there while he waited.

C.C., experienced as she was, had dealt with Chaos Grenades before. She drove her Knightmare forwards, seizing the weapon without concern for her own... consciousness. She could not have said life, since she did not die. Moving quickly, she did her best to get the Chaos Grenade far away.

That did not stop it from exploding.

(HOLY CRAP I AM SO SORRY. I THOUGHT I REPLIED TO THIS. FORGIVE ME, MASTER.)

Valentine watched the grenade go off with a feeling of pure horror for an instant, before he reminded himself that C.C. was immortal. He emptied what was left of his magazine into the entrance, then grabbed C.C's craft - at least, what little was left of the damn thing - after the grenade had expended its payload.

"Kohaku, we need to cut C.C.'s body free of her craft or she can't regenerate cleanly; her bones will twist and deform as she heals because of how mangled the cockpit is. Does your craft have an MVS?"
