A while ago i posted something about a Freedom Fighting Rp here and before i got to see the ammount of people intrested i disappeared from the site. Now im back and wish to bring the thread back again. Here is the new story.

the Russians attacked the United States and are winning the gulf war in the year 2012. Now most of the United States has been occupied and only the mid west stands as a free country. However, in the City of New York a resistance has been formed. They have fought the Russian oppressers ever since they began the occupation three months ago. now the fight has been turned around and America will rise from the ashes.

Basically you fight the soviets on US soil. Think Red Dawn and the Freedom Fighters videogame mixed into one.
character sheet.

The date the characters will start at will be June 12th 2012. if it goes on for so long we will hopefully bring one chapter to a close at about August 29th 2012. Then i'll start a new thread in a different place.

Previous occupation:
Freedom fighter name:
Job: ( like engineer, scout, commander, Fighter, Recruiter, etc)
Weapons: ( a maximum of 3 allowed. no chainguns or miniguns or grenade launchers. individual grenades and Rocket launchers allowed.)
Items: ( Medkits, Keys to car, Monkey wrench, etc.)

Sounds pretty cool. I liked Red Dawn but wish it had been longer and I liked what I've played of Freedom Fighters. I might be interested if more people join.

great now that i have someone's attention i'm going to edit the main post for a better story. And MABE i might start my character sheet.

Ok main post edited and i'm making my character just for an example for now. Unless this thing takes off then it'll be my main character.

name: Chris Doughty
Gender: male
Previous occupation: student
Freedom fighter name: ghost
Job: scout/ sniper
weapons: AI AW Covert sniper rifle, .357 magnum revolver, molotov cocktails.
Items: two medkits, binoculars, spray paint
bio: Chris was bjust another student until the occupation. Then his mother couldn't get any money from her old job because of the russians. Chris then took his dad's old revolver and hunting rifle and joined the resistance to fight off the russians. at first they didn't accept him because of his age. so he went out to prove himself to them. While a major of the russian army gave a speech on tv Chris sat in a abandoned building nearby and shot him in the head. Once he proved himself to the resistance they used him as a sniper and a scout. they called him ghost because he went in and out and was never seen. Chris got his main weapon of choice during battle and took it from a russian sniper he killed. He took his dad's rifle and gave it back to his poor mother. Chris uses a graffiti system to mark the spots where the freedom fighters will atack and where the exits to the underground are. Once a member sees a sign of his work they know they're at the right spot.

hope i can join?

Name: Sam McDonald
Age: 25
Gender: male
Previous Occupation: former peace core/ civil engineer
Freedom Fighter Name: Lunar
Job: Captain
Weapons: Black AK47, Smoke grenades, and hunting knife
Items: Ipod, dirt bike keys, and map
Bio: Sam or as he is now known as Lunar for his good eye sight in the dark, he was always a supporter of freedom for all thats why he joined the peace core five years back. When he heard of the freedom fighters he looked for them for a while and joined in welcoming arms for he had weapon training. Lunar likes to do recon missions and kidnaps of high ranking members. But the Russians are becoming more protective of there leaders so he is just doing simple missions which is fine for his as long as there is justice.

is this better?

Name: Aaron Montgomery
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Previous Occupation: Software Designer
Freedom Fighter Name: Hack
Job: Intelligence gathering and misinformation
Weapons: Colt Python revolver, AK-47, kukri
Items: laptop, iPod, keys to Volkswagon Bus, pocket calculator
Bio: Aaron worked at a software design company before the invasion. He was what many would call a nerd but he was fine with that. The Russians invaded while he was at work. He hid under his desk when they busted in and somehow avoided detection. He snuck back to his house and got the .357 Colt Python his dad gave him on his eighteenth birthday. He then grabbed his laptop and went into the basement where he imeadiately logged onto the internet and began searching for info about what was going on. He stumbled upon the Russian's communications and began altering them, sending squads in the completelt wrong direction. He joined the Freedom Fighters when they rescued him from some Russians one day when he went to get some supplies. He earned hi nickname hack from his ability to splice his way into the Russians' networks and alter their plans or learn the location of weapons shippments or other useful intel.

Hope this character is okay.

sparrow i think that if your guy was still in the army then he would still be in the midwest where the land is still free, even for recruiting. and since the freedom fighters are lower tech and are mainly underground your guy wouldn't skydive. otherwise your char looks good. just fix up occupation and a little of your bio.

zombie. so far so good. i dont know where you got the kukri from but it sounds good.

I just thought it would be cool.

Let's see... My character got it from one of those weapons stores that sells swords and knives and stuff. Is that okay?
I just wanted a kukri cause my friend has one and I thought it was pretty cool.

This would make more sense: Aaron found it one day while on the run by a pawn shop. The pawn shop had been destroyed from bombings and had stuff scattered all over the place. He needed a weapon and found a kukri on the ground. He only had time to pick it up before the russian soldiers were right behind him and he had to run again. Does that sound fine with you? i'm just saying that since it goes more with the story. besides with communism it would almost be impossible to have enough money to buy much more than food and a few other items. much less a kukri.

08/28/2007 9:13 PM

I meant he picked it up after the invasion kinda like what you said so that's fine.

08/30/2007 9:13 PM

ok i'll start the thread now since i can't wait any longer. its going to be in general. look for freedom fighters : first strike

08/30/2007 10:18 PM

08/30/2007 10:25 PM
