    Default Interest Check for realistic Military/PMC RP

    Hello fellow RPA'ers! As an Army brat, and future US Marine, military role-plays are among my favorite types. Lately however, I have noticed a lack of realistic military role-plays, not only on RPA, but also on other sites as well. By realistic, I don't necessarily mean based in a real war, you can find plenty of those. I mean role-plays with realistic military procedures, chain of command, tactics, weapons descriptions, and combat roles.

    If anyone is aware of a roleplay like this, please let me know, I would love to join it. If not, I would like to create one. My roleplay would take place in modern day, and would likely be about a group of Private Military Contractors who are forced to work together by a warlord, shady government official/organization, or some other person/group who has somehow been able to blackmail, intimidate or otherwise effectively coerce these trained warfighters to do their bidding.

    Please let me know if anyone has any kind of interest in a roleplay like this and I will begin setting it up! Thanks a lot and I hope to hear from you guys very soon!

    -Sean

    Yes, I've noticed this. Current sniper training has them grouped into two, a spotter and the shooter - but frequently people will only play the shooter.

    However, I have no idea how many here have read the US Marine Corp Guidebook of Essential Subjects. Admittedly, I've only glanced at it once.

    Yeah, admittedly the group this RP would be for would certainly be quite small. I am not looking for experts by any means, just people willing to do a bit of research on their character and his/her respective branch and function.

    Archive.org has a trove of old military manuals, it would certainly help.

    If you dont mind some of the chocolate of occult/supernatural mixed with the peanut butter that is military, I have an RP running right now.
    Think Monster Hunter International, The Expendables, SCP Foundation and the combined works of Clive Cussler and Matthew Riley all rolled together with a garnish of Lovecraftian horror (okay, maybe a little more than garnish...)

    Valkyries: Occult Warfare

    The IC is up, the mission rolling out. Thankfully, the Division of Occult Global Security (DOGS) has branches all over the world, drawing from the elite human militant to the more... unique. If this tickles your fancy, hit me up. If your character makes the cut, Id be more than happy to wave them into the narrative.

    Disclaimer: I am currently out of town, so my internet is spotty. Ill be back home to a reliable schedule/connection around the 7th, at the latest (unless Poseidon consumes me whole)

    I would be interested. Would a MARSOC Raider be an appropriate character?

    Shouldn't you post that in the Valkyries thread?
