Roleplay: Blackthorn Corporation
was a role-playing game created by Slash_Prower
It is set in a speculative fiction universe where the Cold War erupted in 1964, tearing the world apart in what was known as the Final War. The world only barely survived, its earth torn open and its people in chaos.
However, new governments rose from the ashes, forming three regions out of the world and agreeing to a policy of complete disarmament. None of the regions have anything more than a token, mainly ceremonial military force—but a loophole in the contract allowed the regions to hire third parties as proxy soldiers. To take advantage of this, people who called themselves "mercenaries" took over abandoned pre-war cities and declared themselves separate states, agreeing to serve their parent regions in return for a constant flow of supplies.
The RP concerns one of the top mercenary organizations in the world, the Blackthorn Corporation. They are the number 1 organization in the United Americas region, and a member of the Fragile Alliance. The top five United Americas organizations are all part of the alliance, and are ranked as follows-
- The Lightwing Alliance
- The Dragon's Chain
- Delta Technologies
- Fenrir's Fang
Both Blackthorn and Lightwing have a huge advantage: Their founder-generals have strange abilities, bringing their power to a level far above normal people. However, more people with strange abilities have begun springing up, and every organization is seeking to grab them in order to become (or stay at) number 1.
The players are recruited Associates, people with abilities who are hired by the Blackthorn Corporation and made to serve directly under the six founder-generals. It's an ideal life, or it would be if the founder-generals weren't mostly insane.
