PROPOSAL BY: athertonwing Resident
GROUP NAME: The Regulators
MEMBERS: ofdensen charlesworth, roland.josephus
BACKGROUND: Formed by ex-military friends concerned at the trends of lawlessness and government corruption, the Regulators have borrowed their name from history's (in)famous vigilantes of the 1880s. They believe in strong second amendment rights and the deterioration of civil society and will stand against both gangs and police to remake Hathian in their image. Ranks will be military style with the highest being Colonel and pretty much everyone having officer rank as a courtesy upon leaving recruit stage. Members will supply their own arms and uniforms and vehicles and the faction will have no common bank accounts or treasury for fear of federal government interference. Operations will be funded by crimes against those felt to be colluding with the corrupt. The group is not a hate group in that they welcome people regardless of color, religion or orientation as long as they display the correct political bias.
UNIQUE: CK Motors - People coming to the shop would probably get a 'deliverance' vibe right from the start. The group would probably be open and friendly to a point, but there would be a perceptible barrier of trust with strangers. On private property, those with permits would bear CD legal weapons at all times. The pumping gas, the mechanics, etc would all display holstered weapons and engage hyper right wing commentary.
FLAW: The absolute and solid belief that they are both right and righteous along with an over-estimation of their own strength and abilities.
POTENTIAL ENEMY: We have no IC or OOC bias against dealing with anyone as the militia sees themselves as the answer to what's wrong with Hathian. Groups that agree with the ideology are welcome and we could use them as supporters... you run the butcher and like us, send us a side of beef to feed our members that are being oppressed by the government. You hate us? Conflict makes things fun! We really can't see any group or business that would be an automatic 'no go' for RP.
EXPERIENCE: 20 years of online RP and longer on tabletop games. More recently, my experience leading the MC and the CD events I have suggested and brought to fruition. I am well aware that I can be vocal about my opinions, but people that engage me with civility and an adult manner will attest that I am extremely accommodating. I have also selected seconds that have a reputation for being level headed and fair and have I no problem putting the right person into negotiations to ensure positive outcomes. I have a vested interest in my story, my writing partners and to CD with the ultimate goal of a place where people enjoy telling stories together
IDEAS: The CK Motors taxi has been a perfect way to interact with new players. At times when faction activity is at a low, I have always been able to scare up RP with the cabs. No pretense is needed to start a scene because sooner or later, everyone needs a ride somewhere. It has been an excellent IC way to introduce new players to the CD sims and the ‘rules of the road’ about IC and OOC rules and to help people get past the CD ‘stone wall’ that seems to affect a lot of newcomers.
OTHER: We have no IC or OOC bias against dealing with anyone as the militia sees themselves as the answer to what's wrong with Hathian. Groups that agree with the ideology are welcome and we could use them as supporters... you run the butcher and like us, send us a side of beef to feed our members that are being oppressed by the government. You hate us? Conflict makes things fun! We really can't see any group or business that would be an automatic 'no go' for RP.
