The french rebel group along with their leader Z, and a size shifting ally under disguise (@kaija) Have begun to enact the more direct and military part of the plan to take over France and create a new and better one in its place. And so, the first action, to take on a military base.

Zafir's plans were coming to fruition. Slowly, but carefully, setting themselves into place. His actions thus far were all well and good, but they were easy. He didn't have to combat heroes, or anyone, to obtain what he wanted. It was just a bunch of hacking and a little sorcery. This however, this was strategy, this was tactics, risking lives in order to obtain a goal. Had he told them, of course, his real goal. They would never have cooperated. But give people a target, and give them a motive, and you can control the hearts of the masses. And if you control their hearts, you control the future.

OOC:

This will help decide future rp's of the same intent, taking France. This one individually is for the purpose of taking down a French military base both as a show of power and for the resources it offers.

Takes place in the CVU.

Here is the IC:

l. You can join either side if you like, but I'd prefer if it made sense. For instance, someone who is always in Gothic probably wouldn't show up for this. But someone who is in Europe or France occasionally, or even is just someone who goes to these places when called upon, then it would make sense.

Sorry, hopefully it won't take very long though. This is one of the ones I intend to make sure it goes all the way through. So it won't be delayed all that long.

@lowlaville: Cool! I liked it!

Just to add though, as far as anyone knows, Z isn't a sorcerer. He is a genius, and it is quite plausible people could assume he must have some sort of power including sorcery, although people likely wouldn't know it. (Unless your person can detect that, in which case I'm totally fine with them knowing.)

@_vex_ / @cognus_ seems to be on hiatus, so I can't expect him to defend. If you want to do an RP set in a French military base that's fine, but if you're taking any territory at all it'd have to be an Empire Claim with COE members playing as the French military + others, as well as following the new Empire rules. That is, of course, if this is CVU.

If it's CVnU everything would be normal I guess, but the universe is just about empty. The transfer-over period for Empires and the like is done, meaning you can't take an Empire in the nU and expect it to be canon in the CVnU. Just something to bear in mind.

@lichter: It's not a take over, I'm basically causing damage to this base and stealing stuff as far as the physical side of things goes. It is a power play, but it is in the political sense more then anything else.

I stopped using discord lol. The swamping of memes put me off for a bit lol. I've been around the forum, not really writing, but only reading. All my comments have been OOC. As for this France thing, no one has contacted either my accounts or tagged me in anything so I was completely unaware about it. You were the first.

Ok so to clarify I had intended this to be

CVU. However it sounds like I may have missssed something in the process here, correct? So first of all, sorry about that, and second, what would I need to do to get this to work out?

@zafir_karim: No worries, it's a new process so there's bound to be miscommunications here and there.

So, checklist of things you'd need to do:

• Main Zafir. For the duration of the campaign and a good amount of time leading up, you can only write him and him alone.

• Build up the claim. I'd say you've already done this bit, so no worries here. Zafir has always wanted France and you've done a good job showing the buildup of his forces. He's at a reasonable power level and this is a good first step for the overall war.

• Signify in the OOC that this is a campaign for France, otherwise it just looks like a regular RP. You should also signify which universe it takes place in.

This looks good, just make sure you change the OOC to indicate that it's CVU and part of the campaign process. Also, it'd be cordial to tag Vex next time, as he runs the country you're attacking :)

@lichter:

Ok so just to make sure I have this right:

•I should not write any other characters except Zafir during this correct? How about the one prison break out involving Jason Ford, can I continue that one? Right now these are the only two things I have going on here at all anyway.

•I think I get this part, but I'll make sure to keep note of that for any other future rp's.

• I'll go do that now.

Alright, and I'll tag Vex for any other rp's involving this type of activity (or the current leader/owner of wherever I'd be attacking)

And again, thanks!

@zafir_karim: You can finish the Jason Ford one, because I definitely trust you to follow through on this one (that's the benefit of having build-up). It's more an issue of using other characters who are affiliated with those who might defend in order to benefit Zafir, like having someone on a defending team suddenly betray the others or something to that effect. It's also just more fair to only attack with one player-controlled character at once.

Don't forget to put "France War Campaign" or something to that effect in the title - it still says Semi-Open RP.

You're welcome!

@lichter: Oh ok cool, thanks!

Well then, I would still be using the Knights Of Justice right? They're primarily NPC's, at least the ones I'm using here, I pretty much just control their main activity like a strategist normally would.

Alright, changing the title now.

@zafir_karim: Sure, that should be fine. The issue would come from having two characters in different positions of power or conflicting sides, such as someone invading New York but also having a character who controls the media. Aiding the invader with the media controlling character, for example, is something we seek to avoid.

@lichter: Ok I'm good with that, should be fine for me then. It does seem plausible to utilize less secure forms of media, like things like facebook, or whatever other things like that, to also influence the outcome. He is trying to obtain the people's interest after all, since this is as much political as physical. Would that be allowed?
