Hitler is a clone. Stalin is a cyborg. And Churchill died of tobacco usage. Welcome to the 7 kingdoms.
In the universe of the 7 kingdoms the world has fundamentally changed. With the discovery of a select few individuals who had the ability to harness energy: whether from a deity, an object or element (or even a person), humankind advanced technology ten-fold. These individuals consorted with the dark god Karti to gain a huge technological advantage. They then formed corporations, where they gave these secrets away, and so history was changed irreversibly. Technology advanced beyond what we even have today in a couple of minutes.
In 1940 world war 2 had begun when Germania embarked on a campaign in the Baltics. They now own Greece, Turkey and Romania. Hitler has declared Constantinople his capital. France, ruled by an insane Artificial Intelligence has taken over most of Iberia. The ‘Allies’ are dictatorships. China are capitalists. The seven kingdoms of Francia, Germania, Italia, Brittania, Russia and Afro-Asia and the Confederate of America - two newcomers - are at war with each other. These two newcomers are Afro-Asia, made up of former colonies in Africa and Asia who rose up in rebellion: and the Confederate of America, including Canada, the USA, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America, all gained by the US after embarking on a series of military campaigns.
They are all now monarchies, in one way or other: The mad King George VI seized power after Churchill died, turning Britannia into an absolute monarchy. In Germania Hitler is said to be a puppet of a much higher power, known as ‘the man with the crown’. The despotic Assam ibn Al-Sheera rules over Afro-Asia with an iron fist. The so called ‘confederation’ of America is really owned by Jack Seagull, who has established an absolute monarchy-like rule over his citizens. In Italia, Mussolini was overthrown by the Most Revered Pope, Baldushir’s earthly form, Raymond IV who persecutes ‘heathens’. In Russia, Stalin has declared himself emperor of Europe and king of Russia and turned Russia into a totalitarian absolute monarchy. And in Francia an insane Artificial Intelligence rules, seeking to take over the world.
You are a group of mercenaries for hire, working black ops for whoever pays the best. At least, for now. The time will come where you must declare your allegiance, that time is not now. Not yet.
Some stuff I should mention:This game will be light hearted, dark humor. I do not expect it to be NSFW, it may be violent and maybe a bit of swearing but that’s probably all I want. PLEASE stick to the provided natures. Strengths, weaknesses and everything else can be your own, that’s fine. If you have any questions about the world, email them to me (at email@example.com) or use the comments box. I would probably like only one of any one nature.
For reference, the allies consist of Britannia, Francia and the American confederacy. The axis is Germania and Italia, which is now a theocracy. Russia are the Comintern. And there are also the remaining republics: Capitalist China, the capitalist union of South America and the Japanese Demarchy. Various minor powers are also part of the political spectrum, but these are the major ones.
This will hopefully go on for quite a while, and i intend it to be an epic tale: for instance, you will choose which jobs you undertake, and that could change the political landscape e.g Afro Asia being split in two.A lot of the item’s I give you will have special rules, so please pay attention to the descriptions. I am in GMT 0, London. That’s probably about it, I look forward to playing with you.
