UNDEADLY ASSASSINATIONS: PART ONE
Any who I'm back and thought I try my hand at another group roleplay. I kinda got this idea from that movie "WANTED" and something else I can't recall. Here's the story.
An extraordinary league of assassins , all equipped with special skills, were once renowned for their skills of lethal combat and tact. An assassin for hire was always contacted through an organization known as the SIXTH RED that was believed to be associated with ancient black arts. Each assassin was required to live by the sixth laws of honoring in which they would never kill for money, for power, or vengeance and by blindingly eliminating the worlds 'evil' was a just cause. It was in this honor that each assassin lived and died by.
However despite the black and white views of the organization. One assassin slowly began to believe in something else. Who were they to judge and persecute humanity while they themselves had so much blood on their hands? Turning against the organization the one assassin hunted and terminated every fellow assassin by developing a contingency plan. When the last assassin was dead and the organization destroyed the fellow assassin committed suicide. No more would those with power be able to judge and persecute humanity.
The ancients believed that when one dies their soul is carried to the afterlife for final judgement, but when a souls purpose is unfinished that soul can be brought back. Many years into the future, the world is a different place now. A new head of the organization comes into power along with several new and deadly assassins. However the rise of the organization has brought back a few "dead" friends.
The previous and deceased members of the old Organization have come back. The rogue assassin responsible for killing and destroying everyone has come back to take down the new organization while the other deceased have come back to avenge their deaths. However this doesn't have to remain so being that the newer and darker organization has come to power in the worst way. The undead also have to worry about the new league of kick-ass assassins and come to terms that everything they stood and died for was a lie from the beginning. So here's what I'm looking for to start out.
Okay here are some Q&A's so you guys can get a better grasp of the world.
What is the Sixth RED?
It's an organization that dates back to ancient Egypt. Their leaders practiced black arts with the goal of trying to obtain immortality. They control their assassins and give them missions. It's like the Sixth RED is a religion and the assassins are it's believers. The Sixth RED has many unknown members. The rogue assassin didn't really kill off the entire organization since some members were able to escape in secret. It wasn't till many years later that they had gained enough power to rise from the ashes and start where they left off.
What is the year and what kind of world does the Roleplay take place?
I'd say somewhere around 2025. It's kinda futuristic with some fantasy.
Who are these assassins?
Assassins are hand picked by the organization for their remarkable abilities. The pledge loyalty and trust to the organization in such a way that they are blinded by what's truly right and wrong. Some of these assassins have different backgrounds. Their abilities might have made it uncomfortable to live in regular society. Many of the assassins might have been regarded as freaks or outcasts which is why they chose to serve the organization. In doing so their souls are automatically tied to the organization.
What kind of powers are we talking about here?
Being that this a blend of sci-fi and fantasy. I would say anything from magical to technological, but not god-like.
Why did the rogue assassin go ape shit on everyone?
History tells us that their has always been exceptional people willing to breakaway from oppression and bring change. The rogue assassin began to believe something different from the others, broke away and set out on a mission to "right the wrongs" so to speak.
Now what's the plot?
The Organization has survived and resurrected it's self to power in the year 2025. The undead, including the rogue assassin, have risen due to this as well. The Job of the rogue assassin is to take down the organization for good. This could mean a lot of things for the rogue assassin for not only does the rogue have to worry about the newly risen organization , but the undead assassins wanting to avenge their murder.
Also as an undead assassin you could:
One have the choice of forgiveness and help the rogue take down the organization once and for all to put your souls at rest.
Two try to avenge your death and either take down the organization yourself
Three Join the organization at your own costs and finally..
Four Try to kill everybody and rule it all by trying to become immortal.
