Venezuela, mutant paradise.
Venezuela, mutant paradise.

Venezuela. Once a deteriorating socialist experiment, turned the plaything of powers beyond the grasp of mortal men. In the hands of humans it burned. In the hands of mutants it arose. All humans exiled or dead, a paradise built by mutants, for mutants.

Deep under the black soil of the Venezuelan forests mutants found vast reserves of vibranium. Wealth and power undreamed of poured into their hands. Overnight Venezuela became a global power which demanded respect for its mutant populace through strength.

Shogunate

As the stronghold for mutants it is ruled by the strongest for only the strong can protect the mutant race in a hostile world.

The first ruler was Xenon, King through his martial prowess and telepathic might. However he vanished, presumed dead.

For months Venezuela drifted, rudderless and leaderless until it attracted the attention of Ivana, a Strigidae and twenty third of her rank. Gathering her allies and a coalition of mercenaries she struck, slaying her only rival with a single knife throw and seizing the kingdom, though at a terrible cost; her eyesight.

Now the dust has settled. The remains of the dead have been removed from the streets and Ivana of the Strigidae death cult has ascended to her place on the throne.

Venezuela has undergone seismic changes at the top. Though Xenon and Ivana were similar in many ways, such as their burning contempt for humanity, however they also rule in different ways.

Ivana has imported her own supporters into the country and placed them in key positions to solidify her grasp on the country and reward those who have served her faithfully.

Orochi

No Caption Provided

The ancient clan of shinobi known as the Orochi have joined Ivana in Venezuela. Along side the telepathic VZ Elite they protect the nation, using their martial skills and nearly supernatural stealth to fend off intruders and hunt down humans who dare to enter the country.

No more are they armed with simple steel or titanium weaponry. Now the Orochi are armed with vibranium blades, throwing stars and arrows. Black vibranium gauntlets often guard their forearms and the occasional master might be found with a vibranium mesh under his ritual robes.

Small temples dot the country and crimson clad clansmen train their ancient skills within their walls, day and night. Preparing for the day when Ivana calls upon them once more.

Rules:

  • No major destruction without asking me. I don't mean you can't break into the country and explode some buildings or something but if you want to destroy an entire town or something like that you should PM me and ask if its alright.
  • Any mutant can become a citizen or travel freely through Venezuela.
  • Humans are outlawed here and Venezuela has a lot of technology devoted to detecting them. However if you want to do something here just come up with a way that you bypass the defenses and its fine, you don't even need to ask me.
  • If you're gonna post in this thread you do have to sell my NPC's. And me. And each other, should you fight here. So keep that in mind.
  • Have a good time!

Very nice for a new Venezuela thread. (If you ask me, the old way one was too depressive. Especially the front page.)

Can't wait what you do with this and your new ruling class.

@strigidae_23: OP made me wonder what I did do with Xenon. Kurt is dead. Stark is dead. Xenon is most likely dead. I think, if I ever did return, it'd be with a completely new set of characters. (Hence I just allowed all my old ones to die).

@pyrogram: Sometimes its best to just start over. Especially when you've gained a lot of RPG knowledge and you can build yourself a better foundation than you did when you were newer.

@cassius_knightfall: That counts so far as Ivana is concerned. And I'm pretty sure its common knowledge he went after LeBeau like a wild man so if he dropped by and asked for some vibranium she'd give him some. Supporting the mutant cause and all that.
