First a little bit of information about Shadow on the Sun which was my original game on here, a bit of information about this game and me and my time.
First, Shadow on the Sun, is closed. As most of you might have noticed I stopped responding there are a number of reasons for this. The main one being that a key player dropped out, and the secondary ones being I didn't have time then, and all the plot ideas in the world wouldn't save me from the pit it had fallen into. Rather than attempt to restart it I decided to let it die as an idea that really didn't fly.
I didn't have enough of my own world created for it.
Second, SSWARS (Secret Service Wars) is a game I've been playing, working on, and overall developing since I was likely 11 years old. I have two versions of this game that are still in play.
This will be the third version and it'll be adapted to fit into the schema of this forum. Considering the characters in it typically curse a lot I'll be modifying the characters so that they don't as it's not suitable for this forum.
Not only that I'll modify character roles that were in the original to fit the missing pieces that are in the other two games (Chasidy, Jamil and her father aren't in this game so I have modifications to make there.)
Lastly Me and My time. Where do I begin with this...
Right now I work two jobs, and I have been doing this since July. I do 40hrs at one job and 8-20 at the other, totally 60hrs a week sometimes.
Before though I was unable to attend to this site during the day. Which meant RP requests were left in my inbox for lengthy periods of time, Shadow on the Sun did not get the attention it deserved and I lost a lot of contact and interest in things that I shouldn't have.
Now, During the week I'm able to attend to these sites in the daytime. Which will mean RP Requests will get read faster, they will get their attention and this game WILL absolutely have my attention.
Now that that's out of the way, I figured I should give you what this game really is... in the proper format.
Sit tight this is lengthy...
In 1917 Nicholas II abdicated the throne and in 1918 the Royal family was told they were posing for a picture and they posed along side each other, Alexis in his father's arms and the daughters standing beside each other. There instead of a photograph they were murdered.
Then in 1920 a woman by the name of Anna Anderson claimed to be the lost Grand Duchess Anastasia Nicholeavna Romanov.
Claims ran rampet that the daughter of the last tsar of Russia had survived. The bodies of Alexis and one of the girls hadn't been found leading many to believe that not only Anastasia but Alexis had survived.
They did survive, though the woman who claimed to be Anastasia was not her.
The pair had survived the attack and were taken to safety away from their home in Russia, finding refuge in the United States under false names.
Alexis was a sick boy whom grew into a sicker man, having a blood clotting disease that did eventually claim his life but not before he had married Alix a Duchess from Germany and had his one and only son Victory Alexisovich Romanov. His wife never did know about his true heritage, it wasn't something that he cared to share for fear that even a whisper of his last name could bring about his fate, death.
Victor, Alexis' son, knew the secret having been told by the men who had protected Alexis and Anastasia. Anastasia died of complications not much after her brother's death and Alix raised Victor as a noble gentleman who eventually married a descendant of a noble family, Natasha, in order to keep the royal-noble blood line thick should the event ever come to pass that they would one day again claim the Russian throne.
By 1951 Natasha and Victor had had their first child. Christopher Marcus Victorich Nicola. Nicola being the name their were hiding under, and Victorich his patyronic name as they kept their Russian heritage true to their hearts. Natasha in 1952 gave birth to her second son Nicholas Alexis Victorich Nicola and then to a third son in 1956 Dmitry Victor Victorich Nicola.
They remained safe within the comfort of the United States, and continued to watch closely in 1962 as the Russian people vote in a referendum to return the Tsar to rule.
Claim after claim popped up from people announcing themselves to be decendants of the Romanovs, claiming to be the most logical heirs but private lawfirms searched and searched till they found Victor in the states, various tests proved his right of passage and he ascended the throne in 1964.
Victor led his country with grace and flare, a true king for the people but in 1970 he died mysteriously. His eldest son had just turned 19, the age of which he could claim the throne as his own. Marrying a few years later to Maria a lady of the once French Court, Chris unlike his father ruled in a rather... obscure manner. There was always things being hidden, and his own brothers had a hard time trusting him but they never said anything. He was their Tsar.
In 1980 Chris and Maria had their first child, a boy named Mathew Alexei Christovich Romanov. Then in 1995 came the re-instating of the KGB, despite the fact we all know they never stopped operating, they just hid under various different names.
Chris' brothers did marry and did have children but they were hidden away from the public, Chris was paranoid and feared they would attempt to de-throne him, taking it for themselves, so he degraded their pressence in the Royal family, hiding them as if he was ashamed of them.
Victor had done great things for Russia but his son Chris did not... Chris desired more, what he had was never enough. In 1999 two years into President Nathan Kellar's first term, the United States discovered exactly what Chris was doing, he was striking smaller countries using terrorism and gangs as his method he took them over. The men reported to him and he continued to look good before UN.
With no way to really prove what was going on in 2001 the US created a special task force to combat terrorism and secretly monitor the movements of the KGB. The first director of this task force was Admiral Alex-James Chug. The task force? The FIU.
In 2002 Maria, Chris's wife was assassinated on a leisure trip and Chris blamed the FIU vowing he'd get his revenge for it. Chris' retaliation came though when the Admiral was murdered in his home.
Of course the trouble didn't stop there, in 2001 Christopher Victorich Romanov was assassinated leaving his young son to take the throne, and an evil, vile, disgusting and horrid woman to marry him. Alexia Merv, the head of the KGB, and one of the most vicious women you'll ever meet married the young Tsar, becoming the Tsariana and shocking the world. She had no noble lineage and her marriage to Mathew should NEVER have passed but no one objected to her. They feared her.
Things just continued to get worse in 2001 with all the battles and countries falling to the KGB while the UN continued to look the other way. It's 2002 now, and the new head of the FIU has their hands full...
The KGB are constantly at a secret war with the FIU, and outside hands are taking contracts for either side and at times for themselves as they secretly attempt to squander away their own power.
Gang Families lead luxurious but dangerous lives within Russia and, paying fees to the Royal family to keep their comfy lifestyle.
Members of the once noble families of Russia have either run or taken to paying for their safety. Some vowing never to return.
Christopher before he died had run his brothers off, his nephews or nieces never to be seen again, forcing them so far into hiding that no one even knows of their existence.
This war has only really just begun. Alexia dreams of world domination and is squandering away the power to accomplish it while the FIU scrambles with it's limited power to stop them.
When the whole world is on the neutral side there's never any war.

Position in Organization:
Name: Kyle Stewurt

Citizenship: Duo Russian, American
Known Languages: Russian, English, French, Spanish, Danish, Japanese, Polish, Latin, Dutch, Italian
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Sharp Blue
Skin Color: Tanned/White
Other Identifying Marks: Has one, but you're not likely to see it and live.
Picture IF any: Will edit in the link after. (Have to finish drawing it)
Organization: Underground Organization.
Position in Organization: Lieutenant
Attitude: Kyle is cold mannered and quiet. He doesn't exactly have the highest reguard for people, he doesn't exactly LIKE people. He's been burned before and while he'll never talk about it he shows it in the way he acts, never letting anyone really get close to him especially girls.
He is WRECKLESS when it comes to jobs, and perfers to operate on instinct rather than anything else.
Quirks: Kyle hides his Russian accent and Nationality. He'll roll his Rs every so often and occasionally he speaks in Russian instead of English.
Kyle may know 10 languages and have the ability to read lips but he never talks about it, just generally is quiet and listening to what people say.
He wears a ring on his right hand ring finger that has two angels and a stone on it, never takes this ring off.
History: His history is a cloud of smoke and papers. No one knows if Kyle Stewurt is even his real name. There is a long trail of papers behind him and anyone that gets close to finding out can't get past the fact that he's MAYBE Russian and not American as he pretends to be.
His relationship with his boss is simple business though he often looks to the man as if he were a father instead of a boss.
Kyle's partner has been and remains to be a younger kid by the name of Adam, who seems to take more care in ensuring that Kyle stays alive and acts more like a bodyguard, something Kyle still hasn't been able to figure out.Name: Steven Sloane
Nicknames: Steve, bossman
Birthday:September 23, 1965
Known Languages: English, Russian, Spanish
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Green/Yellow
Skin Color: Tanned
Other Identifying Marks: Scar on his chest from a bullet wound he took a long time ago.
Picture IF any: Will Post later, have to draw him again.
Organization: Federal Investigations Unit
Position in Organization: Director
Attitude: Steve is a jerk, plain and simple he is a jerk and he acts like one to everyone. He's not very nice to women in combat and if not for regulation he likely wouldn't have any women in his agency.
He doesn't exactly always follow the law though he has some friends in the underground that he uses for information, in his mind an enemy of his enemy is his friend... which isn't always the case.
Quirks: Steve has a bit of a Californian accent and while he's mean to woman in the work place he does like to flirt with them and typically gets what he wants from them. Steve has never been a nice guy but he has moments...
History:Starting his work for the LAPD he worked his way up and eventually into the FIU where he began his career at the Deputy Director level.
AJ had been a close friend to Steve, and he took his death pretty hard. Chosing to become rather cold by nature after it he vowed to get the KGB back.
After becoming Director of the FIU Steve has yet to lighten up on people, many think something tragic happened in his past that he never talks about.Last one I swear...Name: Adam McEwan
Birthday: August 22, 1980
Known Languages: English, Spanish
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue
Skin Color: White
Other Identifying Marks: None
Picture IF any: Will post after, just need to modify it.
Organization: Underground Organization
Position in Organization: Bodyguard
Attitude: Adam is fun loving he contrasts Kyle perfectly in that he's always open minded and usually does all the talking. He tends to draw Kyle out of his shell and bring out Kyle's humor.
More often than not Adam is smiling and and in a good mood.
Quirks: Adam doesn't know Russian... which makes his job a little more difficult at times.
History: Kyle doesn't know it but Adam's job is to make sure Kyle stays alive. His original job in the organization had been just to gather information but as the boss learned that Adam was able to bring out the better side of Kyle he partnered them together.
Adam was just a kid when he ran away from home and joined into this organization and finds Kyle to be the big brother he never had, even though it's him trying to keep the wreckless man in line and most of all alive.
Okay then, I think that's it now. This is taking the place of my Shadow on the Sun RP and will run smoother, I already know the end to this game =PName: Alexia Merv Romanov
Birthday: November 19 1979
Known Languages: Russian, English, German, Spanish, Italian, French
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Cat Green
Skin Color: White
Other Identifying Marks: KGB Tatoo on the small of her back
Picture IF any: Again will post later.
Organization: The Russian Government
Position in Organization: Tsarina
Attitude: She is evil, she is sinister and she likes to toy with men and she knows she's good at it.
Alexia will be your best friend to your face and the second you turn your back she will kill you.
Quirks: She was in love with a man who left her despite their arrangement. Alexia is looking for this man, because he's the one that got away.
History: How exactly Alexia ended up head of the KGB at the age of 23 was unclear, but she did it and made her way to be cozy with not only the young prince but her partner another younger man that found his way near the top thanks to her decentful tatics.
Speculation suggests she found her way to the top through a trial of decent and domination over the other men. She also lied about her age... till it came time to marry the young prince of course.
Her tatics are cruel and she takes great pleasure in hearing the screams of an innocent person. It's told that Alexia's childhood had been brutal and she learned how to be the incarnation of pure evil from her parents.
While many are loyal to her it is out of fear that they are loyal and she doesn't care so long as they do their job. She has little tolerance for those who don't.
Shortly after her engagement to the young prince and now tsar had been announced her boyfriend disappeared on one of his missions and never returned.
Alexia for the past few years had been meddling with the idea of mind control and has made use of it in it's cruelest form. Her technology while advanced has caused many deaths and continues to cause more as she uses traitors and spies as human lab rats...
Well two endings all depends on which way the players steer it.
So go ahead a join, the RPG thread will be created tonight or tomorrow sometime, though you can't post in it till your character is approved. I'll respond to this with approvals.
My time will be yours and I look forward to making this game work better than my last at least ;_; All I ask for is a second chance!
Oh and I encourage people to DRAW their own characters and not use anime pics, or have a friend draw them. I'd like to see some artistic talent come into this <3
