CONCORD DAWN WANTS YOU TO BE A JOURNEYMAN PROTECTOR!
It was a cold, gray morning in the courtyard where the current novices stood in their training armor. Their "armor" was little more than weighted training clothes (Actual Mandalorian armor was hard to come by and was only awarded to Protectors). The motley assembly of adults, small children, and awkward teens stood in formation yawning, with tired and hollow eyes.
It had rained hard the night before, during the raid.
The Adjudicator who presided over the Protectors was a grizzled and gray-haired Mandalorian human with a face as weathered as the faded armor he wore.
“After the events of last night, three new Protectors have been named – to ride as Unproven,” The Adjudicator growled through scarred vocal cords. He wore the tell-tale sign of a Protector – A red sash cloth under his gun belt. Protectors who were awarded specific territory wore red. Brown sashes went to the Journeyman Protectors. Journeyman Protectors were not limited by “jurisdiction” and roamed the uncivilized landscape enforcing the law, hunting fugitives and keeping the peace of Concord Dawn.
It was a somber graduation ceremony. The only decorations in place were the dark bloodstains across the faded gray pavement; from raiders and novices alike that had been killed the night before. After the trials and training they had endured, they would have felt cheated…that is if they had been able to feel anything beyond utterly exhausted.
“You have earned your weapons. You have earned your armor. You have earned the cloth of the Protector!” The Adjudicator raised a long blue cloth – The sash of the Unproven Protector. It was theirs to wear as they rode alongside and were mentored by a Proven Journeyman Protector until they earned the honor to wear the red or the brown… or merely proved they were unworthy of being Protector at all.
[OOC: Welcome to Concord Dawn! Come join the struggles and hardships of the wild frontier of this uncivilized world in the Outer Rim! Join as one of the newly appointed Unproven Protectors (3 openings only) and describe yourself as you select your Mandalorian armor and weapons from the Armory and hit the road with your new mentor.
You may also play as farmer or settler of Concord Dawn and get your own homestead going. Play as an established Protector and sheriff over your own town and territory or as an offworlder with your own unique story and agenda.
Just try to not get eaten alive by the harsh creatures, the elements, or those sentient species cutting out a life for themselves on the uncivilized world of Concord Dawn, or worse, those that keep the unforgiving laws of it.
Be sure to fill out the following character sheet:
Age: (Protectors may be chosen at any age but must be able and strong enough to work as a field hand, wear Mandalorian Armor, and handle a myriad of melee weapons.)
Sex: (Yes! Females can be Protectors!)
Species: (Concord Dawn is a largely unpopulated world and any species looking to carve out their own life are welcome to try their hand.
Brief History: (The majority of Protectors come from humble origins; either orphaned from unfortunate circumstances, unable to find work or from a family with simply too many mouths to feed – Though only the exceptional survive the rigorous training of a Protector)
I plan on this being a slow and steady RPG as the boards don’t seem too active. I know you guys get busy so just feel free to just post what you can. If you’re inactive for too long I can bypass the story around you until you get the chance to start writing again.
Rules: No flaming, no controlling others characters without permission and feel free to ask me questions or for help getting started if you need it.
