The CIS: an Independant Faction (new history)
« on: January 29, 2007, 03:18:43 PM »
New Idea for the settlement a few posts down thank you!Out of all the fallen governments, the former soviet republics and satellites (even the former Yugoslav states, one of the most influential) joined into The Commonwealth of Independent states, an Independent Faction. They molded the old capitalist government into a peaceful socialist group. They do not reatain the horrors that the Former Soviet drenched the Earth with, it actually extremely free, minus the market which is heavily restricted. They remain as the only country to survive the fallen ways of Governmentalism..That is recognized today.

Weapons:

Even though they are peaceful...a military is still needed. The group continues with the style of the old AK; Cheap, ideal, and gets the job done.

No stupid gadgets or over weight targeting processors. Just a light weight killing machine.

The main gun in the CIS-1000 an assault rifle built with similar specs as the Ak-74, and an M4 carbine. The barrel is irregular so only a special silencer can be attached, so stealth/Special ops use is uncommon.  It can use different attachable launchers. The cleaning is extremely easy, and the power is deadly strong. A bullet can rip through most armor.

The other gun the BIS-400 is a much smaller, but similar gun. It is built in the sense of an AKS-74u. It is made by the independent State, Belerus. The gun is an iron version of the old archaic weapon but is heavily modified to fit today's standards. It lacks the punch of the CIS-1000, but can be changed for every mission. It can fit grenade launchers, suppressors, tazers, bayonets, mini flame projectors (not a common feature, used Manley by the Bratava, The Old Russian Mafia), a one shot miniature missile launcher, and an EMP shield projector.

Space program: Being the first into space, the CIS has maintained a powerful space program. The Senkans leave them alone hoping they'll cure" the afliction

The fleet of ships remains docked at the current moment but when the time is called, then enemy's fleet will most likely fall. And then areial bombings will take place...

Government:

All businesses are collectivized and run democratically. All are fairly run. The old World countries have different areas where they vote on what happens internally and for the entire CIS. Each state can leave at will through the people and only the people's will.

Everyone votes on everything. Laws, War, you name it. 

Oddly enough, private ownership of weapons in somewhat restircted. by law, all house holds are required to own a hand gun but non Vibro Swords are allowed. an odd cult of swordsman and handgun enthusiasts evolved. Popular guns include UIS-20's, lugers, Makarovs, and Colt brand handguns.



Gamma: The CIS sent a colony group to examine Gamma to continue relation with the corporation, of whom they despise. The group is well represented, and is very large in numbers. The city is an almost utopia on gamma. The inside is like a giant mall with apartments and places to eat. Everything is government owned but is voted by the people, so basically all Alde esque (minus the fattiness) generic products with funny names. There are small independant resturants, a few bed and breakfasts, and some small shops but nothing large.

The arts are a major deal and are encouraged by the Government. Movies are in huge amounts, they number almost that of the old bollywood.

After the loss of interplanetary travel, they have lost contact with The Motherland.

The mafia: Where ever Russia goes so does the infamous Slavic Brotherhood the bratava. They use cheap stolen surplus guns ranging from archaic to last year. Their influence is deep in back near the barely populated "suburbs" (basically an almost rundown city.....where those who choose not to get no education that is provided or hide to use harmful drugs) they hide away form the laws eyes. there they can some how sell women, sell Heroin and adrenalin, and assasinate corperate leaders.





The sons of liberty and Corperations: The CIS's enemy are the corperations and their, what they call "mind control" and "playing with genes"

while they haven't allied with anyone they have made deals with the Genomans and found a way to cure infertility, the only thing the CIS ever messed with genetic wise.

The Sons of Liberty, the alleged "terrorists" fight off these "corrupt Kulak Sukas". RIS (Russian Independnat state) has sent some EMP kits over to the Sons secretly to "even the odds" no large full scale war is on against The sons and the Corps but when one does, The CIS might side with what they always have beleved in, the left of Lenin, like they've always have....

Let's see here, how to fit them in...

The CIS is tolerated by the corporations due to its strong ties in the blackmarket and underground.  Additionally the location of their, "Motherland" remains a secret, it is not known if it is a planet, a spacestation, a fleet of ships, or just doesn't physically exist at all.

The CIS, although they consider themselves independent and follow the ways of archaic governmentalism, they are classified as a Rogue Corporation.  The corporations would like to see the CIS removed, but rearly take actions of doing so.  Rather they often hire the CIS to conduct raids or smuggling operations against other corporations.

The CIS managed to broker a deal with the Senka Corporation for having control of a settlement prior to the event of the Afflication.  Since the beginning of the Afflication, the CIS has managed to spin its blackmarket web throughout the planet.

Let's call them bratava cuz Mafia is itilaian only.

yes think of it as a secret society....within...they're not terrorists so no insurrection or Coup de' Tat will likely happen.

besisides, the few people likr them, they curropted the people , sold guns to terrorists....Ect Ect Ect

I added a space program in the bio so maybe that's why Senkans won't attack...they have a chance of curing the affliction

I know this is a bump, but I'd like some input from people. I really love this idea, and would like to see Ukraine, Georgia, and Russia personified as good in a video game.

Well I don't know so much about the Ukraine and Russia...I live in Georgia so I'm totally against putting it in a video game... ;D

For the, Ukraine/Russian countries they would no longer exist in the current time line.....however, you might like to take a look at the "Lukron" when they are debuted as a Lorescape.  ;)

I meant the state, was just being silly!  ;D I know you meant the Republic of Georgia though when mentioned in context of Ukraine and Russia.  :)

You're ideas may not be "entirely" dead, just needs a little rework to make it work. Think of it in context of 1200 years from today. ;)

The RSC, member state of The CIS and independant alliance
« Reply #9 on: May 28, 2007, 03:24:54 PM »
I was being sarcastic. But anyways.....



   History:


After corporate rule seemed to be everywhere one thing was happening in lukron territory. A group of nationalists appeared in St. Petersburg, something not seen for 1000 years. They appeared to be not just natives to the area, but senkans claiming to be yaponskis, and Norveskye worker's party. A strange combination no doubt.

They took down the regiment of lukron troops using old world weapons dating back from the cold war. These were not just insurgents, but a well organized rebel front with some of the most ingenious minds of the time.

When the lukron sent a regiment to take out the rebels, they saw something that they had never seen before. The Rebel weapons were brand new and had amazing accuracy. Their advanced tanks took out their archaic mechs (archaic to toady's standards).The lukron had lost, and would loose much more. During their assault they destroyed large areas of civilian activity.

The civilians were objective to the rebels, but now they followed the rebels. Soon Moscow fell. The rebel cause flowed down the Volga and climbed to the Ural.

What made them so successful? Their creativity, these men were ingenious thinkers. They reversed engineered, copied, or flat out made from scratch whatever they could.

The rebels then declared their territory a new independent state. They Called the Russian Socialist confederation this inspired other corporate entities, much smaller ones in Scandinavia. The corporations Vitframtid, Stryka noven, and Waldsoft were overthrown. From them Scandinavian Federation, Das Ostland, and The New Czech republic formed. New nations also came out of lukron territory, such as The Byelorussian Socialist Republic.



These nations knew the corporations would take them down one by one. They met in Minsk, and formed the CIS, The Commonwealth of Independent States.

Their goal? Survival and the end of lukron. Lukron was once the biggest corporations. Now all that was left were dessert nations and bits of Southeast Asia. A new nation was forming near Odessa, which was where most of the lukron council was. That area became heavily fortified, which prevented their ultimate demise. The RSC took more area becoming the largest in the common wealth, stretching near the North American province of Alakron. A new nation was formed out of the Caucasus regions. Lukron was doomed.

One famous story of The CIS involves their demise. It began when their forces invaded Aaron. Aaron was a smaller region of Lukron territory. They received little information and had been low on food ever since the war started. When the soldiers guarding the cities heard of their menacing appearance (CIS soldier mostly wore black uniforms, with body amour underneath, gas masks, and swords) and rumor of savagery like no other. the flags of the army were seen. not only were there red flags bearing a silver hammer and sicle, but black flag depecting a skull and sickle and hammer with crossed swords under it. they thought that the CIS would destroy them. As their enemy advanced the soldier but up the white flag, declaring their surrender.

The CIS took their weapons and told everyone to get inside their homes. Black trucks approached. Just then the CIS men handed out food and new uniforms for the Alakron men. Aaron Then became: The United Alaskan Front.

Lukron was close to demise, it would be weeks before they could march into Odessa. The Middle East, one of lucre?s major territories was slowly being taken over. They were overrun.

The commonwealth got arrogant, they attacked senkan territory (old world Japan) the slowly took one island until the senkans made a huge offensive. The CIS began losing battles right and left. As they lost battles the more the enemy knew of their technology. The engineers of the BSR, SF, and the RSC were very good at reverse engineering, but the senkans were better. Smaller companies began moving east ward on CIS land. Das Ostland was almost finished; UAF had to make a full evacuation in to RSC territory, which was dwindling.

The governments had a meeting and decided in order to protect their people, and their secrets, they had to evacuate all their lands. They were able to take out senkan anti air in a sneak attack making the far eastern evacuation possible. However a traitor told the lukron about the escape.

The corporate giant planned on ambushing the fleeing ships, but as they approached, bombers destroyed their invading force. A group of volunteers had made way for the others to escape. There are rumors they were led by an adolescent child, genius in his tactics as he was vicious on the battlefield.

There were a million volunteers, 200,000 escaped when the battle was through. One ship crashed out of those volunteers. All were sold as slaves, experiment, and etcetera.

Those who escaped joined the vast fleet. Angalski, Norvaskey, Yermanskyes, alaskanskyes, russkyes, and yaponskyes were all part of this conglomerate of the last free men. They escaped to some far off planet. where did they go? Some say a moon in the old solar system, others somewhere far off.  Where ever they settled, it either became a divided land (not in a war or distrusting sense, but like how the say maybe NATO is bound by peace, but different governments), united by the CIS pact, or a planet Ruled by the pact, the CIS, with a new government.

The remaining territory was originally claimed by Lukron. Senka wanted part of it as a deal for helping in the war. Another corporate came out of the shadows, genoma who did not have a large territory to call their own. And thus began the tri-corporate war




Weapons:

The Cis were known for their unorthodox weapons. They used old technology which was upgraded and used newly devolved prototypes that no one new how to react to. The group continues with that style, but now focusing more on their current technology useful against the far advanced mechs.

No stupid gadgets or over weight targeting processors. They are all soldier proof killing machines. At least most, if not all are.

The main gun in the CIS-1000 an assault rifle built with similar specs as the Ak-74, and an M4 carbine. The barrel is irregular so only a special silencer can be attached, so stealth/Special ops use is uncommon.  It can use different attachable launchers. The cleaning is extremely easy, and the power is deadly strong. It utilizes a barrel spinning technology that makes the bullet move much faster. With that, they can rip through most armor.

The other gun the CIS-400 is a much smaller, but similar gun. It is built in the sense of an AKS-74u... The gun is an iron version of the old archaic weapon but is heavily modified to fit today's standards. It lacks the punch of the CIS-1000, but can be changed for every mission. It can fit grenade launchers, suppressors, tazers, bayonets, mini flame projectors (not a common feature, used mainly by the Bratava, The Old Russian Mafia), a one shot miniature missile launcher, and an EMP shield projector.

The Ak-701 is also a staple weapon. Just like a regular Kalashnikov. They have and extra part to make bullets penetrate modern armor. This weapon will work well anywhere. It's loud though.


They commonly wield russian style calvary, norwegian viking, german, and senkan katana Vibro-swords, which are all hand made. They are quite useful on the field. Some use short ones as a type of bayonet the swords can cut through many types of metal, and most body armor.

The uniform is composed of 3 layers. The first is under shirts for comfort and as a sort of spounge for sweat.. The second is of body armor. It covers the chest, the hands, sholders, biceps and triceps. The lower region, such as the groin and legs are covered as well. The final layer is a silk/multi-fiber uniform, usually black. It is quite flexible and loose. Low caliber bullets can't penetrate it.

The uniform is usually complimented with a gasmask. The head is covered with varied results; there is a bullet proof helmet, a plated beret, or sometimes soldiers wear ball caps or the commonly dubbed "Fidel Castro hat".


Armor

The CIS faces one weakness in this war, an extremely weak Mech Force

There are only 3 mechs:

The Gagarin class, which is medium sized. It has a large chaingun and a missile launcher. The missile launcher has a revolver like chamber which launches explosives charges at impressive speeds like an advanced grenade launcher. It needs to reload every 8 shots.

The Bogatyr class, which is a huge behemoth of a mech. it has 2 large railguns, and a blade like arm attachment which can launch plasma. the arm is also frequently used in close mech combat.


The sputnik class is a bit of a skeletal model. It used as a scout and a riot guard in prisons. One arm can be configured with a grenade launcher, flamer thrower, artillery, machinegun, or fire extinguisher. It also has a claw arm for picking up items. Some soldiers give it an electro pole or a blade.

Neither have impressive shields. Nor armor. They are slow for their classes

The bulk of the vehicle are scout wheeled vehicles and tanks

The Chuchnaa, or sasquatch tank is the primary tank. It is very spacious, doubling as a barracks on the field for 4 soldiers. It uses special ammo that can pierce mech armor causing major damage. However they are a bit hard to maneuver. The ammo it can hold is also limited. Some are modified for more ammo or as mobile command centers.


Space program: Being the first into space, the CIS has maintained a powerful space program. The Senkans leave them alone hoping they'll cure" the affliction

The fleet of ships remains docked at the current moment but when the time is called, and then enemy's fleet will most likely fall. And then aerial bombings will take place...


The sons of liberty and Corporations: The CIS's enemy are the corporations and their, what they call "mind control" and "playing with genes"

While they haven't allied with anyone they have made deals with the Genomans and found a way to cure infertility, the only thing the CIS ever messed with genetic wise.

The Sons of Liberty, the alleged "terrorists" have officially no connection. There have been rumors of scientists from the CIS aiding the sons.


Government:
The CIS is a socialistic society. It is democratically run by a soviet (council) consisting of member nations. Everyone is given Food ration currency, for restaurants and food for the home. The rest is entertainment cash, which is for furniture, clothes, and recreational things. When there were separate countries, they were all social democracies.

Depending on your job you will receive more cash. Leaders receive much less to make leaders more benevolent. People don't join the government for power, but to help the people.

The majority of people hail from The Russian states or are Anglo descendants. There are a bit of Japanese, and very few Scandinavians and Germans. it is beleved the CIS terriotory is an RSC led expedition hence why the mafia followed.

The government reflects the RSC form, with some modifications.



Gamma: The CIS found gamma, and were surprised to see their old corporate enemies. They maintain a very large facility about the size of a large shopping mall. The place is full of small shops and restaurants. The settlers eventually built a casino, arcades, and a racetrack for entertainment
There is a large art museum which is heavily supported by the government

They have neutrality pacts with senka and genoma. Zeckom and the CIS never approch each other. It's not out of hate but just an unwritten mutual agreeance to stay out of each other's path.

After the loss of interplanetary travel, they have lost contact with "The Motherland". No one quite sure what it is but some believe it is a moon near earth, possibly Titan or another world.

The mafia:

Where ever there are immigrants from the old reaches of the Iron curtain, you'll find the Bratva, the longest lasting Russian Mob or "mafiya". They use cheap stolen surplus guns ranging from archaic to last year. Their influence is deep in back near the barely populated "suburbs" (basically an almost rundown city.....where those who choose not to get no education that is provided or hide to use extremely harmful drugs) they hide away form the laws eyes. There they can some how sell women, sell Heroin and adrenalin, and assassinate corporate leaders. The people want to mend this area but the people in the suburbs for some odd reason do not wish help.

there Revised....



And Revised again (06/27/07)

and again (02/19/08)

and edited for awful mistakes (05/12/08)

and then to make it clear the terriotry is owned by Russia, not teh scandivaian states)

I'm assuming you're speaking of my new plan? or is it my old original one?

Could you elaborate on the mercs and smuggler part? i'm just curious why. Not saying it's bad but I'd like to hear more opinions

Just that with the Bratava with its own secure corner it would make sense for it to attract the rougher, outside the lines of the law kind of people.  Smugglers could do some good business there and it should be a fairly secure district in the sense that if you dont belong there, your probably gonna end up dead.  And well, mercs usually arent recruited out of some fancy office, but more from the other side of the tracks kind of place, in a bar or some other dingy type of establishment.

oh yeah! forgot about them!

Yeah that's the cool thing, Mercs can go and do odd jobs for the Bratva (just like in Mercenaries!).

I'd also like people to be attracted to the very last government left.
