This is an interest check for a Front Mission-based RP. For those unfamiliar with the series, it takes place in a future where 'wanzers' (mechs, from the German word, 'wanderpanzer', walking tank) are common place. Wanzers are used for civil, construction, and military purposes. They come in a variety of types, from spider-legged to hovering to bipedal, all the way up to absolutely enormous city-wrecking superweapons. Each is usually highly customized by it's pilot, outfitted with different weapons and settings based on combat ability and personal preference. The world is rife with conflict, especially between the OCU (Oceanaia Community Union; Japan, Australia, southeast Asia) and the USN (United Continental States/United States of New Continent; USA, Canada, South America). So, naturally, the players in this little story will be from both of these nations (anywhere in the world, really) as a crisis threatens the entire world and forces everyone into cooperation to confront a larger threat to global peace. For now this is just an interest check, so I'm looking for people who're up for a good 'ol time piloting giant robots. Knowledge of the series is not necessary. Syopsis: The year is 2092. Mechs now fight on the front lines alongside infantry, tanks, and other weapons of war. Called 'Wanzers' (from the German word, 'wanderpanzer', walking tank), these machines are common enough to be used for both civilian and military purposes. Wanzer pilots often customize their mechs down to the tiniest detail based on personal preference and fighting style. Technology in the field is rapidly advancing and often, such advances (and the resources that create them) are responsible for conflict. A new conflict is about to be born, the result of advancing technology, greed, and revenge.
Jericho Durai, born in the OCU, was raised in a secret government facility that was developing super soldiers in secret. Wildly expensive and hardly successful (9 out of 10 candidates went insane or died of mysterious causes), the project was scrapped and the living soldiers were disposed of. Or so the OCU thought. Jericho survived and made it to the USN, a rival supernation. Hell bent on revenge against his tormentors, he vowed to use his skills to destroy the OCU. Little did he know that treachery cares little for borders. Durai was increasingly unstable and, though he met with success in a number of missions for the USN, he was deemed a risk and abandoned by his team mid-mission, left to die. Twice betrayed, the remains of Jericho's sanity snapped and he vowed revenge against both the USN and OCU; this time, however, he would do it on his terms. With his own army. With his own wanzers. With his own hands. Now, all the data on the OCU's super soldier program is missing and a top secret wanzer prototype has been stolen.
Jericho Durai has just announced his demands: Blood for blood.
