Historic War RP

Post by Keval on Thu 03 May 2012, 9:05 pm

Seriously, I feel we have a lack of war RPs on the site. And even if they are war, they're fictitious.

I already have a Vietnam template we could use if you guys would like, unless you'd like to go deeper into history. Im really open to any suggestions. They could even be alternate timelines.

To answer you question however, frankly we do. But most historic war plots are literally.

"We are in World War 2. Go."

Your Vietnam RP is a good idea, but you need to be specific. What year was it in? Was it during the Tet Offensive? Was it during the evacuation of Vietnam?

Sure.

Let's say you want a short and sweet Role-Play filled with action and combat with some pauses in between for character development. The battle of Ia Drang would be your choice. It was also the first opening major conflict in the war. I think it was a 2-3 days battle at LZ X-Ray where major fighting went on, and then a continuation of the battle was at LZ Albany from day 3-7.

If you want a long Role-Play with intermediate action, the Tet Offensive is that. You got a drawn out siege with North Vietnam soldiers attacking you in waves with artillery, tanks, and infantry repeatedly.

Or finally, if you wanted something short or long with a lot of action, you can get the withdrawal of Vietnam by U.S. forces. You can make it long by having it a retreat of a battered unit to Saigon, or short by having soldiers hold areas around Saigon then Saigon before being evacuated. Or not.

Or, if you want to you can just combine all three into three different threads based on a small group of characters. I know there is a book out about a bunch of friends who go into the Vietnam War together to try to survive together.

...Suddenly interested...
How? This is either an amazing idea or... well it's probably that.
I've never really been into the Vietnam war but being in a sort of Band of Brothers[maybe sisters] would be interesting; it'd morph the wilderness-survival with war-survival.
I can already hear the screams as people find leeches on their arms >:3
...wait, that could be me...

Tet Offensive. I think it suits us all best. And maybe for some dramatic farewell action, we could also involve Saigon. So, shall it be Marines, G.I's, Rangers, USAF Ground Forces, Navy? I personally like the standard Army soldiers for intermediate action since a lot of the heavy fighting was done by Marines.

The Tet Offensive mainly involved U.S. Marines and U.S. Mechanized Cavalrymen. Saigon would involve both Marines and Army troops. The Rangers of Vietnam were intelligence gathering forces. The Armies biggest action was Ia Drang out of the three role-plays.

Don't know much about the Vietnam War, but I like the idea.

Maybe we could use a more elaborate CS this time? Like the one I put in for that one Star Wars RP mixed with the Chimera and stuff.

What's wrong with fictitious wars? When it comes to role play, fictional seems more interesting, IMO.

Perhaps this could be historical fiction? Vietnam war with some fictional elements. Russians? A fictional prototype US weapon?

I'd rather not. I like plain history. Besides, I've got two Alternate Timeline RP's in my head, one having to do with WWII and the other with the American Civil War.

Yeah, I think we could make it work. It'll be more of a U.S Draft sheet though, seeing as the current one wouldn't make any sense.

Tet Offensive. Well, it'd be a long Role-Play. The only fear I have is that half of us will quit before it even reaches mid-point.

I will definitely stay. Vietnam is one of my favorite wars.

P.S I also want to continue the Halo RP, but no one seems to fluidly post on it and be as interested in it as me.

Well, in the Tet Offensive the Battle of Khe Sanh interests me the most.

P.S. I realize that.

Alright so far, we have:

Tet Offensive
Based around Battle of Khe Sanh
'Band of Brothers (and sisters)' type roleplay.
Long roleplay
Mild action
Goat's Dossier type CS.

We need a good plot.


Vietnam. The godforsaken hell-hole that claimed the lives of over 3,000,000 people. Well, not yet. The U.S has just joined the war effort against the Communist forces in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. As the U.S enters the war, thousands of young American men enlisted with the Army, Marines, Navy, and Air Force. Unknown to them, the war would be one of the bloodiest of the decade, claiming the lives of more than 10% of the U.S Forces. "Uncle Sam wants you to join the U.S Army!" How 'bout it?

I was thinking of making this one more detailed...and better.

Eh, we just need a base description with something based around Khe Sanh.
