Okay so I got the idea to do an RP different from the other RPs on these forums. The idea is to do something more realistic yet more action-y than all the video game/anime type RPs here. A little bit Uncharted, Indiana Jones, Bourne, Rambo, National Treasure, 007, etc.
The story takes place in the real world so you'll see real places like the United States, South America, the U.K., etc.
Word of the "find of the century" was sent to one man and news quickly spreds to those in the underground buisness of finding valuables around the world aka treasure hunters. But not all treasure hunters are created equal, some can be classified as... well, pirates. The modern kind of coarse, so no "yo-ho matie." stuff please.
Here is the stories main groups. Lets try to get somone in each group if you please
The Black Bloods- A very large group of criminals that are modern day pirates. They orginated in South America and have spread to Central America. Their members consist from Brazilian to Mexican to Jamaican and more like Cuban and Porta Rican. They have a lot of men, a lot of guns, but most of them aren't too smart since they spent most of their lives rotting in prisons. Of coarse they have to have a smart, crude, down right evil pirate leader. This spot is up for grabs guys.
The Investors- A large crime syndicate originating in the U.K. by a very smart, very rich man (up for grabs aswell). They deal in crimes all over the world. From drugs to weapons, from hired hits to human trafficing. They make a large profit from the Black Market. Though they don't have as many men as the Black Bloods they make up in quality. They have access to top-notch weaponry and enough money to buy plenty. Also most of their men are highly trained in combat, some were even discovered to be ex-marines and such. If you're in their way, they'll remove you quickly.
Individual treasure hunters and thrill seekers- Not much to be said here. Small groups consisting of just a few, like 3 or 4, people.
So here is an example of the sign-ups for this RP. this will also be my actual sign-up
Name: Brandon Bodine
Group: Individual treasure hunter
Weapon of Choice: He's most comfortable with handguns but will use anything to defend himself with. He's fairly good at hand-to-hand combat for someone with no specific training. He just uses his experience from fights he has gotten into in the past.
Appearance: Some what muscular build. Not the tallest person ever coming up to 5'9. He has short black hair with his bangs somewhat spiked (which starts to lay back down after sweating a lot or swimming). He has green eyes and usually has a five o'clock shadow.
Biography: Like his grandfather before him, he is a treasure hunter. He loves the thought of adventure and fame. With the help of his fairly wealthy friend Hector Night (name subject to change) he goes adventuring for such. This has led him to plenty of trouble in the past, like being in prisons all around the world and several run-ins with the Black Bloods. Infact him and the Black Bloods cut-throat leader have spoke on several occasions, forming somewhat of a bitter rivalry and hatred towards each other. Usually their conversations start off sounding like two old friends talking to each other for the first time in a while, but thats their way of saying, "I hate your guts."
His attitude is somewhat comedic which has earned him the title of smart-ass. Even in the most dire situation he will cock an eyebrow, smirk and give off some smart-elick remark which, depending on who he's talking to, can get him in more trouble than he's already in.
As of now 2 characters are allowed per person.
