So, you think you can run a faction, eh?
This is the thread for in-character interactions for the first pod of my forum RPG, who are playing as the Flame Dawn Empire
. Try to limit the discussion to your budget proposals or other important in-character interactions (for instance, if someone calls for a vote). Otherwise, please direct all comments to the out of character thread
so this one stays as clean as possible.
Our three players are Grinnin_Gin, Eclipix, and Mew28. If you'd like to join in, let me know.
Aberion enters the council room, pacing around. The three councilmen are seated at the table, sitting patiently while this human embodiment of strength and force restlessly walks from one end of the room to the other. Finally, he stops and slams his fist on the table.
"Why is it, gentlemen, that Lanstead still stands? That Genesis Industries still dares fly its flags? Why haven't we crushed them yet?"
There can be no response, and he returns to pacing.
"I know that we have been hurt by the Sleepers, hurt by this war, but we can do better than this, damn it! Even with most of our best troops dead we can show the Overseers that no one fights like the Flame Dawn and wipe those foolish engineers and robot-lovers off the map!"
He storms out of the room and an aide enters.
"My lords, here is the information brief on the Empire's current status."
Territory: North of Talich and a small base in the Untamed World
Diplomacy: At war with Genesis Industries, allied with Overseers of Solace, strained relations with the Warpath. Note that Aberion's temperament will not allow the Dawn to ever be completely at peace.
Available military units:
Besieging Lanstead: 2000 Aspirants, 500 Knights
In Untamed World Base: 200 Knights
Un-mobilized Reserves: 5000 Aspirants
Note: The Flame Dawn Empire does not allocate resources to Fortification, because the Empire is always attacking and never needs to cower behind walls.
You look at each other.
"So, what do you think he wants us to do?"
"I'm guessing that our first objective is to conquer Genesis Industries, and then the rest of the infinite worlds."
"Hmm... better get to work then. Let's have our budgets turned in by the 15th."
