Desert breeze whipped through windows, shutters broke open, scattering loose papers and lilting aside tapestries. Torchlight flickered against the beautiful African ceramics, the dawn sun falling onto the crumbling plaster walls. The dust in the sunlight glittered, as did the ink from Seamus's pen.
It was a few weeks since he and his team had crossed the border into this country, and there was no word from the local government. All they knew was that the militia had not stopped at the border. They were in this country, that was for sure. There was thousands of square miles of savannah burning, somewhere to the north, according to the foreign news that could be received at high ground.
Seamus knew that he and his soldiers had to find the rebels, and find them fast, or they would reach the capital.


Everyone, make your own characters! Welcome to the first RPG on this forum!

I'll post scenarios when all who wish to play have made their characters (don't worry, your character intros don't have to be as long as mine is) and we all plan what we do, and, since this is a role-playing game, act it out! Post all character talk in Italic, please.

This is my character:

Name: Diarmaid MacAmadan Caimbeul
Birth Place: Portnalong, Skye, Highlands, Scotland, the United Kingdom of Great Britain
Birth Date: 5/5/1994
Military Service:
Quoted from The Daily Mail:

Quote :
To have seen them break like a surge of water from the thick forest, their gillies with shields raised as defence against the rain, clutching sword, Kalashnikov, and crann tara - it was the nightmare of the pressgangs, the scourge of the seasoned veterans, and the end for thousands with or without guns in their hands

When trouble arose in the Highlands in 2008, Diarmaid was one of the first to rally around the crann tara in Inverness. Fighting mainly in the urban areas of southern Scotland and northern England under the relentless Seamus mac Fearchar Caimbeul, he quickly became one of the foremost authorities on melee combat and urban warfare available to the militia. Responsible for drilling recruits and prisoners in the virtues and style of warfare preferred by the generals when they arrived on Barra, he learned many tricks from other veterans who came to view his work, eventually taking more of an interest in using sniper rifles at close range. Preferring weapons which are mobile and accurate, such as the silenced MP5, there are few urban tasks he cannot handle. In the confined spaces of narrow streets or city ruins, his blade is more useful than a bullet.
Physically strong as he is, his endurance is not up to the standard of many of his former fellow soldiers who fought on open battlefields. He is loyal and fierce, and ruthless.
However, with the inconclusive disaster at Greenhithe and Seamus's failure to counter the UN invasion in the west, a treaty between the Highlanders and the Anglo-Scottish government was reached. Although Gaelic is now a compulsory subject in schools across the British Isles, and the clans are allowed to function as political parties with their own military might, the soldiers did not receive the lands they were promised.
Many joined the new British Army, but others, feeling betrayed by their leaders, looked to the undefeated UN force as it left, and, after interrogation, were employed. Diarmaid was one of these soldiers.
His skills in melee have been invaluable, and his use of silenced, compact weapons even more so. A unique style of urban fighting, fanaticism, and experience in some of the harshest battlefields since WWI have made him a seasoned and eager warrior.

Bio: A native of Skye, he was born in Portnalong. Like his future leader, Seamus mac Fearchar Caimbeul, he found out about the truth from books, and was astonished to find that Gaelic-medium education had taught him the opposite. He harboured a bitter hatred for nationalist Scots and Gaels, recognising the United Kingdom and Britain for what it was - the land of the Gael. The British government, in his eyes, needed to be reformed and brought back to reality.
Educated in many martial arts and the use of many types of Highland weapons, he then became an expert on Highland history and culture, and did all he could to promote a rebellion by collecting funds through a fanatical order. Briefly imprisoned for trespassing on RAF Lossiemouth, he wasn't free for long before the rebel generals began to assess the situation in the Highlands.
He heard of them, and, in a brazen move without thought of British Army traps, he wrote a dossier, along with a few others, on the state of Gaeldom and sent it to Seamus so he could prove to the other generals that a rebellion was possible.
He left his home and girlfriend in Portree, and made his way to Inverness where it was made public knowledge that the generals would light the crann-tara and rally the fighting men.
Although the generals were delayed, he arrived early, and eventually managed to be one of the first to greet the generals as they approached Inverness Castle.
In the rebellion, he had many roles, eventually meeting his girlfriend again when he released her and others from Carlisle Castle. His request for a marriage was rejected until the war, which was now a panic, positions changing by the hour, was won.
However, the UN-sponsored evacuation of most of northern England to Ireland whilst the rebels were rearming put paid to this ambition. After a minor skirmish with the UN civilian fleet off of Barra, the rebels invaded England again, and from then on Diarmaid's history is explained above.

Secondary Weapon: Makarov, flare gun

Other Weapons: IEDs, Dart Rifle

Also Proficient With: Claymore, war axe, mortar

Specialty: Hand-to-hand combat, same-elevation sniping, and urban warfare
