Hello interwebs! It’s your friendly neighborhood redhead here and today I will be sharing with you the storyline for my upcoming RP series “Chivalry is dead”. As of right now this is a small private thing between my boyfriend and I but we will be adding our friends in at a certain part of the story ( which will make a ton more sense after reading this). Happy reading!
Chivalry is Dead
Two people, renegades of their own planet, find themselves stranded on a strange and unfamiliar world. They stumble upon a ruined castle, abandoned long ago after falling in a war. While this castle was unfamiliar to them, they made it their new home.
Their home planet, Nebula VI, was ravaged by a nuclear war over a decade ago, but still remained in a post-apocalyptic state. Millions of people died in the war, and more continue to die from lingering radiation. After the war, the local government, otherwise known as the Republic, attempted to reform the country. Because of the war, many criminal and organizations such as the Mafia came out of hiding and started to fight against the government, wanting to take over the country.
The epicenter of the battle between the Republic and the insurgents, Capital City SR2, bathed in chaos. In recent events, the Republic began to regain control of the Capital and sent hundreds of various criminals into a large, reconstructed jail. Not long after this mass roundup, a nuclear bomb detonated a few miles away, completely destroying the jail. Anyone who saw the explosion in the distance knew that it brought certain doom with it. A prison break was stirred, and over ¾ of the prisoners escaped. Among these was a young female assassin named Jade Rogers. Jade located an operational escape pod and killed her fellow inmates who had commandeered it. Unknown to her, she had a stowaway on her vessel: a warrior long forgotten, named Raiko Gryffin. Only after Jade managed to escape the nuclear explosion did Jade become aware of his presence. With a certain degree of difficulty, he convinced her not to kill him, but the escape pod was damaged by the blast. So wherever they were going, they were going there together.
Just outside of the Nebula Prime system, their little escape pod started bearing down on another planet. Its sensors, old and damaged as they were, could not sense this planet. The pod was sucked in by the planet’s gravity. Thanks to their lack of control over the craft, Jade and Raiko braced for impact as the pod crashed into the side of a hill.
The castle they fashioned into a home was not without a history of its own. It was once ruled by A tyrannical king. King Jacob was a notorious king, taking in all of the worst people, banding them together to build his army. This king of thieves sent his subjects; namely assassins, rogues, dark wizards and witches, and evil knights; out to plunder the surrounding villages in search of treasure. After twenty years of torment, those villages decided to fight back. Against the king, they ultimately prevailed. He and all of his army and subjects burned at the stake.
Many legends surfaced after this that the castle was a nexus for dark energy. These legends also stated: should a descendant of Jacob be put into the same situation as he, the remains of the castle would appear to them, allowing them to live in safety. Once the descendant discovered their true power, the planet would become visible to the rest of space, allowing his heir to spread Jacob’s terror and death across the galaxy.
