Introduction

Retribution is a funny word. Unfortunately it’s no longer recognized or used in this time and in this world. Some people would describe the world as great, fun, surprising, but ever since the plague hit and the new widower king has taken charge. Ever since this happened, both at the same time, the kingdom, Balor, had gone to chaos, and worse, the plague has started to spread. This led to the separation of the rich and the poor, the people with less money being put closer to the plague while the wealthier are kept behind a wall and safe from the infected.

They were like two different worlds. The rich had everything they wanted, two story houses, backyards, beautiful horses, quality food, and an actual roof over their heads. The poor, on the other hand, suffered greatly from the plague. Riots broke out downtown and the place just reeked plainly of death because of how many dead corpses were found lying around without being properly disposed of. Usually, the king would do something about this, burning the bodies and searching for a sort of cure, but he did nothing after finding out his wife was taken by it without even baring a child. In fear, he hid his adopted child within the walls of the rich, shielding him from the impurity of the poor and ill. Because of this, the little prince had no clue of what suffering lied just beyond the large walls he had no permission to go near.

It's been a while 20 years since the plague began and started to spread. Luckily it hasn't gotten out of Balor yet, but people now fear that the plague will eventually leak out of their small kingdom and affect others. On the 21st year of the plague's start, there became the recognizing of four special people; a simple low-life thief, a young guard in the line of duty, the wealthy daughter who cries over the poor, and the prince who found out the truth of his future kingdom the hard way.

This is the story of four young adults who eventually come together on, at first, bad terms with each other until they realize how many similarities they share. That is when their plan developed to overthrow the king was put into action. They called it Retribution.



The Thief - The thief was originally born a low life, one of those poor children who grew up in the dirt and worked to earn money rather than inheriting it from rich parents like most wealthy. He's not your typical "Robin Hood" figure, since he plays it solo when he steals. He does, though, hand it back the poor, mostly those that need medicine for their plague. Even though this puts his life in danger, having to cross the wall of guards between the two separate worlds, he still does it anyways, his identity remaining unknown for his whole life and continuing without stop until his actions make a change. But he almost always steals from one house in particular, the richest of the rich besides the King since he sees them on having unlimited money, but his only problem is being stopped by the guard that just never seems to give him a break. (May control people he steals from other than the Wealthy Daughter | Reserved - Shadow44499)






The Guard - This young woman actually used to be a regular girl who lived outside the kingdom of Balor on farmlands. She was one of those middle class citizens, not being too poor or too rich, which she seems to be content about. Her parents then moved her to Balor which was just when the plague appeared. After losing his family, she became a guard in hopes that she could do something to assist the stopping of the plague and save lives though all she has been ordered to do was make sure no one crossed into the rich, and no one crossed into the poor, which she is still bothered about and wanting to change although she cannot. The only way she thinks she is changing things is by letting a friend of hers through the gates to donate money, but while that happens, she has a thief to stop who continuously leaps over the walls. (May control fellow guards | Taken - FuyuHana)






The Wealthy Daughter - She is the richest person in the kingdom, besides the King himself. Although she is rich, and her parents care nothing for the poor and only for themselves, she is the exact opposite and is forced to put on an act to blend in. She, unlike her parents, has a very strong love for the ill and helpless, constantly sneaking out of her house and asking the female guard to let her though since they are close friends. That's when she smuggles out money from her housekeepings and gives it away before quickly returning back, only to find many expensive items, like necklaces and gems stolen by a thief. Also when she gets back, she finds herself being visited by a handsome young man who questions about the world beyond the gate. (May control her wealthy family | Reserved - Kileon)





The Prince - Finally, there is the young prince who is almost always kept hidden inside the small castle or at least within the walls of the rich. Because of his father's loss of his wife, the King grew extra protective of his adoptive son (since the Queen could not bare children in time) which made him stay as far away as possible from the plague, or people in general, explaining the reason why he hardly knew anyone besides the butlers and maids that passed in and out of his room. From time to time though, he'll sneak out of his room and the castle to take a peek at the dark and cloudy world outside. He never has crossed into the world of the poor because all the guards don't allow him, but he has constantly been hanging around a rich girl who's been explaining to him about the world of the poor.

Re: Retribution

Yup! Of course! Feel free to do so!

Re: Retribution

May I talk to you via IM's for a character idea? >w>

Re: Retribution

Now that I rethink about this... you two are actually right (゜▽゜;) Man... I didn't even think we'd go this far to confirm numbers and stuff to be honest!

Anyways, I'm not really good with numbers, so I think I may leave the numbers up to you guys, if that's alright. A few more things to notify about the Kingdom is that since the plague started, the king wouldn't let anyone in or out of the place, and there are less healthy/rich people than poor. Ehh... I'm sure there's more I was going to note about it... but I forgot \(@;v;@)/

Re: Retribution

As for the weapons/equipment, I would think that the royal military would have chain mail/longbows/crossbows/arquebus'. The rebels would be more like Streltsy.

Re: Retribution

I agree with you Roku. Such a low population would be contradictory to thriving material and monetary economy, a social and landed elitist government, and a healthy disease pattern and if the GM does mean for the population to be so low to ramp it up.

Re: Retribution

That's a different view on a city. Even in 8000 bc a city was still in the thousands. I mean Rome was a city state at the time of 1500 and a small one at that since it was only around 35,000. That was good for a city (though the largest city was Paris at a grand 200,000) but it's a low overall population. The lowest city states in Italy being between 5,000-10,000. So it could honestly exist at that point but those cities were filthy rich and even had middle class. This city would be far too poor to do anything like set up guards, build a wall, and even collecting taxes would prove difficult without the money or manpower to fortify power. The biggest problem is that the disease wouldn't be able to spread since the city would have such a low density and they don't have the population to meet the usual problem of where to throw sewage waste.

If the city was, let's say, 10,000-50,000 and the smaller cities/rural towns then the plague would be able to easily spread due to trade amongst the people and slowly get to the city over the course of twenty years. Then it would also make sense for the gravity of the situation because of how many people are at stake. After all, 150,000 dead seems a lot more dramatic than 150.

Re: Retribution

Errr... I'm not sure but I think she actually meant in the hundreds, not hundred thousands. Though I'm not sure an economy could survive in that less of a number.

Re: Retribution

So 400,000. That's actually not that bad. I would say the land size of Hungarian Austrian empire or Portugal. So the duchy could be 25%.

Re: Retribution

Population is a little low, and the kingdom is smaller than others, so perhaps around... 400 or so people? There aren't that many rich since a lot are affected by the plague though, so around 250 live in the poor side while 150 live on the rich side. Out of the 250 that live in the poor, 150 will be carrying the plague. (°◇°;)

And century time....? Yeah, I'd probably stick with somewhere around the 14th century. There should be use of the guns, but it'd be good to also still have the bows and swords in action also. ლ(╹◡╹ლ)

Re: Retribution

Two questions. First. What's the rough population of this kingdom?
Second is the time frame. What century time frame would this be in? 14th century is the best in my opinion because it has guns and newer technology but crossbows/swords are still used more widely for the next three centuries.

Reason I ask is I'm determining how many rebels there would be.

Re: Retribution

He looked great! There's nothing wrong with him! (And side siblings are fine, I wouldn't really have much of a care if all the siblings were little sisters honestly о(>▽<)о)

@All
Oh yes, and I just got PMed by a certain someone who will also be joining our rp, Roku Mushabuki, who has also talked to me about the storyline. There will be something added in as well which would be a resistance group, and Roku will be playing the leader.

That's all I'd like to say! Look forward to the next characters and rping afterwards!

Re: Retribution

Submitted. Now all I need is for you to go over it and tell me what you think. I can always edit it and change it, just in case he's a little too similar to another character. (I've noticed that there are a lot of little sister's already... o.o)

Re: Retribution

@Citty
Oho! Be sure to ask anything else if you need more clarification! I'll answer anything! ヽ(*・ω・)ノ

@Shadow
Hey, hey, take your time now (^v^) We're still waiting for three more people to make their characters, so you can go slow.

@All
Oh yes, and this rp may proceed a little slowly, both with posting and characters because of the time of the year it is. Especially for me since I'll be traveling to the snow soon and school work may get the best of me! ヽ(;▽;)ノ

Re: Retribution

Bahhh! I forgot to do Lucian's personality. -Derp- Ahh well... I'll do it tomorrow. Its late. XD

Re: Retribution

Will do. I'll be working on the layout and Character sheet ASAP. I may PM you to clarify some things about my Idea for the layout.

Re: Retribution

Thank you both for the compliments, and I'd be happy to open up a spot for both of you! (Your preferred genders will also be allowed)

I'll be adding both your characters to the list, but I have one thing to ask of the two of you; a layout.

On the info page there is the Thief, Guard, Daughter, and Prince, and I made them all related in some manner. Those were the original four layouts, so to add two more characters, I'll also need two more layouts. I would really appreciate it if both of you could make your own for your character as long as it doesn't resemble too much to the first four. (ᅌᴗᅌ* )

Of course, I'll be willing to help you if you need help thinking, but I had some struggle thinking of the first four so I think it may be best for you two to make your own if possible ヽ(`◇´)/

Re: Retribution

I'm also quite interested in this Roleplay. It's very well done and like InfiniteOmega, I'd be open to join anytime if you felt you could add another character aswell. I don't mind either genders but I would prefer a male role.

Oh, and I REALLY like your faces ^( '-' )^

Re: Retribution

I see that the currently created roles are taken. If you would like to make one more I would be interested in joining. I would prefer a female character however I am comfortable with either gender. The faces must of have taken some time to make.

Re: Retribution

You all can have the roles, and thank you for the compliments on the rp and my beautiful faces (/:3:)/

Sadly, Im about to head off for school, so your names won't be on there for a few hours until I get back, but just know that those are your roles!

*Other characters may be added to the list since all four are filled out if anyone else is interested!

Re: Retribution

Hello there! This looks like a rather interesting RP and on that note, I'd like to reserve the thief.

The faces were rather... Interesting.
