Here it is then, the .hack//dawn: Reload game thread. I should probably note a few ground rules first.
-Stay polite. If it's in character, I don't care what your character would say, but don't flame a member if he/she did something you did not like.
-This RPG is HUGE. We have such a high number of members that I cannot answer to all of your posts immediately. That, combined with the fact that I am currently typing this at 11.43 AM means that I live in an entirely different time-zone then most of you.
-I can't stress this enough, but NO ONE-LINERS. If you can't post at least a few lines of text, don't post at all.
-I don’t care in what point of view you want to role play, as long as you remain clear on what you are doing, and with whom you are interacting.
Of we go then.
Crimson Knight home server: The city server Kar-Ator
Kar-Ator, a city server with buildings reaching into the clouds and home of the Crimson Knights. As the birds of Kar-ator swayed past the peaks of the buildings, a message was heralded.
"Would all selected Crimson Knight personal report in the briefing room, I repeat, would all selected Crimson Knight personal report in the briefing room.”
The briefing room, located in the Crimson Fortress, was a large square room. Seats were lined up in the back of the room, and a large stage and screen were in the front. As all the personnel took their seats, the lights in the room dimmed, while the stage lights went on. When the whole room was quiet, Lady Subaru made her entrance.
“I thank you all for coming. Recently, we have been getting reports of an artefact-bug appearing on the desert server Ta-Kayna. This artefact-bug possesses extreme power and could cause great damage should it fall in the wrong hands. You have been selected to bring back the artefact to prevent the Black Sun from claiming it. Lady Tanaya will fill you in on the details.”
As lady Subaru said that, a pink haired feline animorphic walked up the stage, taking lady Subaru’s spot. A large map of the Ta-Kayna desert appeared on the screen behind her. “Thank you, lady Subaru. As you know, the artefact lies hidden somewhere in the Ta-Kayna desert, but our informants have pin-pointed it’s location to the ruins of Mock-Ter. The problem is that Mock-Ter was created trough the many bugs and problems that have occurred. This means that we do not have accurate information as to who or what is hiding in those ruins. Our plan is simple: We will use the malanian ruins located farther south in the desert as our main base. Also, by claiming those ruins, we will deny the Black Sun a base of operations. From that point, we will stage scouting missions towards the ruins before we go in and secure the artefact. I probably don’t need to tell you that it is imperative that we find this artefact before the Black Sun. Any questions?”
Black Sun home server: The jungle server Yazin.
In the deep jungles of Yazin, the Black Sun warriors were training. Using the tall trees to build their camps and practice their techniques, it was no wonder they managed to pressure the Crimson Knights so much. While they were training, the bracelets of certain members started beeping. They all knew what that meant: A mission.
Rushing to the Sanctuary, the members entered a large round briefing room. Couch’s, seat’s and benches were located throughout the circle, and a large holo-projector was located in the centre.
As the members started flocking the briefing room, a large mid-length black haired blademaster entered. He was Aran, one of the aces of the Black Sun.
“Allright you guys, settle down.” He called, the room quieted after several seconds. “Right, mission time people. Our spies have found an artefact-bug in the desert server Ta-kayna. They also found out that the Crimson Knights are after it as well. Now, we can’t just let the Crimson Knight’s walk away with an artefact of this magnitude, so we’re going to swipe it away right before their noses!” Aran pressed a few buttons on the holo-projector and an image of the desert sprung into view. “These” Aran said, pointing to a bunch of ruins in the centre. “are the Mock-Ter ruins. Somewhere in these ruins lies the artefact. However, we can’t just teleport in and steal the artefact. You see, this server was created because of the screwed up troubles with the bracelets, the key of the twilight and that sort of crap. We have not the slightest clue on what is inside of those ruins, so we’ll build up camp here.” Aran said, pointing to a spot in the desert north of the ruins. “Now I hear you thinking, what the hell? Why not in those ruins to the south? Well, you think those wimpy Crimson Knights are going to camp in the desert? They’ll claim the ruins south, expecting us to fight, while we’ll make up camp north. Which –by the way- is also the direction the entrance is facing. We scout, swoop in, snatch the artefact. Any questions?”
