    ONS Backstory, Rules, and Units

    Post by Ronin201 on Fri Jun 19, 2015 1:59 pm

    Here is where you can find an introduction/reference to the RP, Operation Neptune's Shield.

    Operation Neptune's Shield

    The year is 2018, the fourth year of war between The Holy Union of Kedahn and Kingdom of Shamlak. At first, it was a fairly limited conflict, more or less constant border skirmishes and shifts of who owned what land. Now things are beginning to spill over as the world’s oil supply may become an innocent victim. Reports are released daily about the possibility of foreign mercenaries in the area, and that the countries are beginning to expand their battlefronts and make more brutal their tactics. The UN Security Council, in the wake of a devastating attack by Kedahn on a cluster of Ustian-owned oil rigs (suspected of protecting Shamlaki military assets), has decided to pass Resolution 2190, allowing the formation of a coalition to secure international assets in the region and protect them from the warring powers. Osea, Ustio, Yuktobania, and Emmeria make up the coalition, bringing forth their best forces to help. But even their presence may not stop Kedhani strongman General Rashon Sawari and his adversary, King Ah-Falis. Rumors also hang that they may be ready to unite for the time being, and do so with the help of more powerful weapons.

    Rules (In addition to the rules of ES)
    -Etiquette i.e. Common Sense: Most of you are probably able to figure this out, but just so its official, don’t be a dick and keep it PG-13/VERY mild R. No heavy gore, heavy sexual content (passing refs are okayish), or heavy language. Rib-poking is okay if in good nature, but don’t go too far. Violation of this rule can result in enforced hiatus from the RP or removal from it, as well as the possibility of extra actions by ES Staff (if they deem it fit). Also, proper editing of posts’ spelling and grammar is encouraged.

    -Aircraft Selection/OCs/Mary Sues: More common sense, but don’t try to make some ultimate ace who never gets shot down, wins every woman’s heart and knows everything about aircraft. No one likes that, and if you try to push it, you may be removed from the RP. In addition, any aircraft that is Gen 4.5 or less is welcome, even original designs! No Gen 5s will be allowed outside of NPCs and special occasions, however. On a related note, your OC must be enlisted in the military of one of the member countries provided (Osea, Yuktobania, Ustio, or Emmeria). A character could be born in, say, Erusea, but not a member of their armed forces (though exchange pilots may get a free pass). Also, no playing canon characters, please. For the most part, they won’t be involved anyway.

    -Participation: Try to be as active as you can! We’re here to have fun! If you gotta go away a while, please inform me. And don’t be afraid if you gotta be on hiatus a while, just communicate. We understand that life happens, but please don’t be rude and hold up the RP.

    -Follow the ROE and canon of the RP: There will be a basic plot that is grounded and must be obeyed, though much of the story will be decided by the actions of the participants, but this is no place to be a hotshot. Violation of the Rules Of Engagement (whatever they are at the given time) set up by HQ may result in OCs being “court-martialed” or getting removed from the RP/put on hiatus. Remember, this is a peacekeeping mission in the beginning. In addition, this RP may have a different canon from your perception, so please respect that. OCs will be given flexibility with what jets they can pilot, but NPC units will retain the weapons they have as listed (note, this doesn't mean you can't use these outside Gen 5 aircraft, it just means that's what NPC units may have). I will control any OPFOR units and their actions as well.

    -The Number of OCs you have: Don't be going crazy, but as long as you can manage them all, you can have several OCs. One thing I can reccomend is doing it ACAH style, with a main OC or two and the rest being background charas to complete the squad.
