RPG Request: As the world falls
History of RP:
It's the feudal era, and all was quiet and peaceful. Days passed by, and everything seemed endless. Endless, till one day.
A man named Ieyasu attacked the western region of Japan. He was with his mistress, Aiede. Oppression was happening to the western region, and people were afraid to step up and try to help.
Days and days passed, it felt like it would never end. Still, no one came up. People started joining Ieyasu so they wouldn't be beaten anymore. Women turned into widows, children into slaves, men into soldiers, teens and young people into workers. No one could express how hurt and horrible they felt.
Ieyasu, still focused on the western region, decided it was time to move on to other parts of Japan where oppression wasn't felt. So his big forces moved on ahead.
5 months into oppression, and he's already taken up the northern part of Japan. People knew they had to do something about it, but they were too scared. Who can stand up and make a difference? Can anyone change the people's minds about this? It's all how you roll the dice...you never know what you're gonna get...
