The intent of the RP is to tell the story of Kerri Chen who is under investigation by the international community for the reckless airstrike a Syvian holdout, leading to the deaths of 57 civilians. Every chapter in this story, starts off with her trying to explain how Devas had split into an unrecoverable civil war. After which, is an anecdote and memory detailing how she became the person that she is now. The entire story arch will span over 15 years.
You as a separate player get to choose how many of those chapters you are involved in. Maybe you want to be a reporter. Maybe you want to be an adjacent soldier. Maybe you want to be one of the rebels. Maybe you are also another soldier who is under investigation and you are telling your story. Bottom line, you get to retell Kerri's story in your own eyes. This RP was originally intended as a solo work story. However, having 4 or 5 different view points of the same events would be very interesting.
I'm trying to work with one post going up every two weeks.
1. Only extremely superficial character interactions are allowed. Example: "I saw Kerri in a coffee shop with somebody else." Your character can observe, eaves drop, but never interact with the main character. 2. Everyone involved gets one post after every post that I make. The RP is planned out to be a set of memories and anecdote as Kerri reflects on her deployment history to international investigators. You as a participant will retell the same story as an outside observer. Be it a reporter, photographer, civilian, or somebody else. 3. I have a basic framework of how I want the entire story to play out. So if you would like to play as one of the characters that I have already involved, you may go ahead and do so. However, you will have no agency as to what happens to these characters (hint: they all die).
