Join the Interregional Slapstick Legion Roleplay (for advertising purpose)

The most despicable but also the most nutritious and healthy of all evil kings, TheVeggyKing, puts forth his claws and sprouts from a long forgotten realm to bring endless suffering but also a lot of vitamins and fibers to the NationStates World...

By mischance, this loophole solely allows him to enter the pantry of the bar on the corner.

Deprived of alternatives, TheVeggyKing offered the greediest person in the bar a lucrative deal upon which the barman agrees to help forming a deadly army for him.

Master Dispatch: Legion of the Cuke (all the blabla)
The most despicable but also the most nutritious and healthy of all evil kings, TheVeggyKing, puts forth his claws and sprouts from a long forgotten realm to bring endless suffering but also a lot of vitamins and fibers to the NationStates World...

An Interregional Roleplay Legion Project:

Legion of the Cuke (region)
Legion of the Cuke (Description)
subtitle: The War on the corner of every region

Intro/Objective

Motivation for this project was that nations of The Bar on the corner of every region wanted to visit other regions and initiate more interregional events.

This resulted in the Aim to establish an Interregional Slapstick Roleplay Legion which is meant as a roleplay community that visits other regions upon invitation for an Interregional Roleplay Event.

Note, no WA nations and WA endorsements involved!

The name of the Roleplay Army is Legion of the Cuke (Description) and the region Legion of the Cuke (region) is meant as the puppet storage of the Roleplay Legion Members.

Discussion takes place in the Magic Restroom in the Bar on the Corner.



Roleplay Background Story
[i]Once banned by an alliance of mortals and gods from the NationStates reality, the powerful TheVeggyKing, makes use of a loophole in the structure of the universe to reconnect to our dimensions.

However, to be able to lift his curse, he has to regain power over parts of NationStates.

By mischance, this loophole solely allows him to enter the pantry of the bar on the corner.

Deprived of alternatives, TheVeggyKing offered the greediest person in the bar a lucrative deal upon which the barman agrees to help forming a deadly army for him: The Legion of the Cuke.

About Member Nations of the Legion

Our vigorous Veggieness TheVeggyKing is already veggie enough, so you don't have to play a talking pineapple or alike. You still can but you don't have to.

However, your Character should be comical/goofy.

A Mission of the Legion will usually be a total fail, and you should be one of multiple reasons for its fail...

simple examples:

-a huge warrior who cannot see blood, or rather wants to be a poet.
-a wizard whose most dangerous spell is the summoning of a white rabbit.

for more see Tipps for Character Creation



Missions of the Legion as Roleplay Contests
The interregional comical army will be used to visit regions that invite the Legion for Quests or a Roleplay Battle Event.

The Roleplay Battle is a raider-parody-like battle is primarily for having fun and increase interregional activity (No WA nations and endorsements involved).

However, the Roleplay Battle Event (and other Missions of the Legion) will simultaneously be a roleplay contest: A jury of judges will follow the Roleplay on the battlefield and determine/nominate one or two winners of an award for best roleplay.

see Roleplay Award:
The Golden Cuke of War

--> Maybe winners might (choose to) get promoted in the Legion Ranks.

possible variations and extentions
1. There is even the option that Legion Members try to win the Roleplay contest to bring the award and honor back to their actual home region. This way multiple regions can compete in the interregional Roleplay event by becoming members of the Legion. (Other regions can become co-organizer of the Roleplay Battle Event).

2. Rather on rare occasions: One could even decide to do the battle in form of a poetry slam, or that Roleplay Post have to be in rhyme or haiku form.



(1)How to join the Legion and (2) their Missions?

The Roleplay around the Legion has two components:

(1) First you have to make your character join the Legion of the Cuke.
--> Recruitment Roleplay and Daily Roleplay in the Bar

(2) Once you are a Legion member, you have the possibility to officially participate in Missions/Roleplay Battle Events hosted by other regions.
-->Roleplay on the monthly(?) Missions/Roleplay Battle Event in a hosting region

(1)How to Join the Legion?

The Army Region Legion of the Cuke will be password protected.

Legion members will be recruited via the RMB of the Bar on the Corner of Every Region in a roleplay manner.

see Roleplay Background Story above.

Our LegionOrgs will decide who will be allowed to enter the Legion after the examination of the warriors in the bar.

Once your character becomes official member of the Legion, you will get the password for the Legion of the Cuke (which can be reached through the pantry of the bar) and still participate in the daily roleplay in the bar on the corner.

(2)How to join a Mission in other regions?

As official Legion member you have the license to participate in the Interregional quests/battles, which take place every few weeks or month in a region that invites us.

How exactly the Roleplay Mission will take its course, will be clarified in advance between the region hosting the Roleplay Event ('victim region') and our LegionOrg.

For Legion Events in the hosting region, there will be rules regarding upper limits of posts and puppets, and more.

see Rules

You will have to accept those rules before you join the Legion and their Missions.



Potential Settings for Roleplay Missions of the Legion
Standard Settings will be according to the
Roleplay Background Story, see above. So the Legion of the Cuke will attempt to conquer a region for the TheVeggyKing.

However, the Legion could be booked for other missions, too. Ie. for helping the inviting region against another Roleplay attack. Or the Legion simply goes to another region to find/steal a magic item etc.

Ultimately, each hosting region can decide the outcome.

Attacks will get unleashed from the region Legion of the Cuke.

Usually our attacks will terribly fail, and the natives will be victorious.

Our Legion Members will be predominantly incompetent warriors. Or not interested in fighting. The Coordination of the Attack will be really bad, or better the Coordinator (Warchief/King) is the only person on the battlefield who seriously wants to win. etc

Maybe the Roleplay will end always with the Bar on the Corner helping to celebrate the victory of the victorious party. The Bar will sell more drinks!

(Rumor has it, that the army and its attacks are secretly coordinated via the Magic Restroom in the Bar on the corner
; ).


Internal Organization Details etc
TheOrc will found the Army region Legion of the Cuke and probably share the founder with Kissinger-Monroe, if the latter is interested.

I learned that The Skeleton Army has done a very very similar play long before us. We might want to involve them. Maybe have even a (first) battle against them, so that we can learn.

I have almost decided that the name will be Legion of the Cuke. :)
We can still discuss those things. :/
Is a Veggie theme 'cool' enough? Are associations with the word 'cuke' too borderline?

Alternative themes:
-meat/sausages
-cookies/cakes
-food delivery

Key Jobs regarding this Roleplay:

WANTED!!:

Job 1. People who really decide if a character can join the Legion of the Cuke."(bartenders as 'LegionOrg' or extra people).

Job 2. People who make agreements about a Mission of the Legion with the hosting region.

Job 3. People/Commanders who coordinate a Missions/Roleplay Battle Event when it takes place.

Job 4. Judges who determine the Winners of the Golden Cuke of War.

Job 5. of course Recruits/Mercenaries joining the Legion.

Job 6. of course People/Bartender continue running the Bar

Job 7. Somebody playing the Evil King (TheVeggyKing). While the role can be kept minimal.

Job 8. TheOrc would probably be the barman corrupted by the TheVeggyKing, but he will anyway delegate the work to recruit for the Legion to his employees. Thus, bartenders or extra 'Legion Chiefs' will take care of Job 1.

Thanks for supporting the project.

Cheers
Orc

The Legion of the Cuke (Description)
(go to The Legion of the Cuke Project : All the blabla!)

Legion of the Cuke
The Juiciest Roleplay Army of NationStates!

What is the Legion of the Cuke?

It's about pure Roleplay!! No WA nations/endorsements allowed.

The Legion of the Cuke is an interregional community united as a comical Adventure Group/Slapstick Army, which visits other regions in the scope of a roleplay story, upon invitation.

The Legion is meant to be a comical Legion, most members are goofy and totally incompetent for the battlefield.
( Tips/Guidelines for Character Creation)

Visits of other regions are meant to be cultural events organized with the natives of the hosting region. Roleplay background would be a mission or battle of the Legion in the inviting region.

Uuh, and you can win a price! something nice and golden. : )

Roleplay homebase is the bar. Puppet storage of the member characters is Legion of the Cuke.

(We humbly acknowledge that similar ideas were there before. Damn it, I didn't know... ie. check out The Skeleton Army)



How can I join the Legion?

If you wanna join the Legion, you have to found an extra puppet for your character. Move then first this warrior/wizard puppet to The Bar on the corner of every region (or to an embassy region) and present and develop your Character there on the RMB.

The LegionOrg, will decide if you get officially recruited.

The Roleplay will be easy going, so just come come!

However, when we gonna visit other regions with our Legion, it is important that your character follows some rules when participating in the Roleplay.

Why an extra puppet:
Since it is planned that member puppets of the Legion of the Cuke will be used to visit other regions (in the scope of the roleplay story), it would be best to found an extra puppet for your Roleplay character, like Winnie the Wizard (or whatever). Also, if we don't travel with the puppets, we would mainly store them in the region Legion of the Cuke.


Official Legion Members
... can be found here: Official Legion Members

Important Characters of the Legion Roleplay:
TheVeggyKing: The Evil King who corrupted members of the bar to recruit an army for him to lift his curse.

The Chief commander...

....

....

....

TheOrc.... Rumor has it that it was him who made a lucrative deal with TheVeggyKing, making the bar the platform for recruiting mercenaries for the Legion. Now he delegates the cumbersome part of the deal to his employees, while he is enjoying the merits.

Cuke, the founder puppet, is not a Legion member and also not important at all, he is just there and does his job: This old kitchen boy was damned by the bar owner to peel potatoes in the pantry for a lifetime. Don't talk to him, and don't send him telegrams, he can't read and won't respond.

see Roleplay Background story...


LegionOrg:
The 'LegionOrg' is not a roleplay military rank but refers to those nations in charge to organize the Slapstick Legion Roleplay.

contact the LegionOrg.


Character Dispatch, Home Region, Main Nation:

optional:

Each Legion member can create his own Dispatch about his Legion Character, and we will link to it from the Official Legion Members Dispatch, administrated by us.

The Personal Character Dispatch can definitely contain a link to your home region. We would like to mention your home regions and main nations even in the Official Legion Members Despatch.

The Golden Cuke of War (Award)

go to Legion of the Cuke region
go to Legion of the Cuke description


The Golden Cuke of War
... is an Award for the Best Roleplay Character on a Roleplay Event of the Legion of the Cuke.

A Mission of the Legion as optional Contest

The Roleplay Army Legion of the Cuke roleplays Missions in other regions, and also occupations of hosting 'victim regions' as interregional Roleplay events (Roleplay Battle Events).

While the Legion Members can participate in the daily roleplay of the Bar on the Corner, they are the stars of the Missions/Roleplay Battle Events.

Those events are mostly for having fun on an interregional roleplay event but are at the same time a 'roleplay contest'. You can ignore the 'contest' aspect but:

A jury will determine the best roleplayers of the event (maybe by nominating a few and then run a poll in the bar).



What will the winner get?

The Golden Cuke of War, of course... :p

TheVeggyKing doesn't get to know that his mercenary legion keeps on failing and thinks his empire/power is growing after each Event. That's why he promotes the 'heroes' of the battle/missions, and honors them.

That means, the best 'Warrior on the battlefield' will be awarded by the TheVeggyKing in a roleplay manner. Defacto, your nation's name will appear in a Dispatch with other Winners of the award.

If you are an official representative of your home region, your home region will be mentioned as well as the winning region.

Also, we can creat military ranks for Legion Members, (from simple recruits to chief commanders) and award winners get promoted in this ranking system.



Who is the Jury?

The Jury comprises judges selected from

- the Bar on the Corner
- the 'victim region' (region hosting the Roleplay Event)
-and other major participating regions.

Judges will be listed in the Agreement with the hosting region



possible variations and extentions
1. There is even the option that Legion Members try to win the Roleplay contest to bring the award and honor back to their actual home region. This way multiple regions can compete in the interregional Roleplay event by becoming members of the Legion. (Other regions can become co-organizer of the Roleplay Battle Event).

Tipps/Guidelines for character creation

go to Legion of the Cuke region
go to Legion of the Cuke description


Tipps/Guidelines for character creation.

It is highly recommended, or even essential to found an extra puppet for your Roleplay Character.

Our vigorous Veggieness TheVeggyKing is already veggie enough, so you don't have to play a talking pineapple or alike. You still can but you don't have to.

However, your Character should be comical/goofy.

Missions of the Legion will usually be a total fail, and you should be one of multiple reasons for the fail...

Why an extra puppet:
Since it is planned that member puppets of the Legion of the Cuke will be used to visit other regions (in the scope of the roleplay story), it would be best to found an extra puppet for your Roleplay character, like Winnie the Wizard (or whatever). Also, if we don't travel with the puppets, we would mainly store them in the region Legion of the Cuke.

(Since the Legion starts of as an adventure group, choosing classes as from Dungeons and Dragons or similar might be nice but not required. Like Warrior, Mage, Ranger, Rogue, Cleric, Bard etc)

simple examples:

-a huge warrior who cannot see blood, or rather wants to be a poet.
-a wizard whose most dangerous spell is the summoning of a white rabbit.

Further random examples:

-I was thinking about creating an incompetent (Orcish) Wizard who rather likes to beat people up instead of using his poor magic skills.

-a huge warrior orc from a famous berserker family who gets scolded by his worried mom because he can't see blood etc etc.

-a beast master who trains chicken for war

-a warrior more concerned with his style/look than with real fighting

-a warrior who actually wanted to become a poet

-somebody on the wrong battlefield

-somebody hired as mercenary but never intended to fight at all

-a constantly drunken warrior who might even forget to bring his sword to the battle.

-zombie losing his most battle relevant body parts

-a little tiny something, completely not dangerous but full of motivation

-an old granny

-a blind/short sighted archer

-a warrior to weak to lift his warhammer

-Knights similar to Monty Python and the Holy Grail

etc

Background Story (Legion of the Cuke)

go to Legion of the Cuke region
go to Legion of the Cuke description


The Return of the Evil King

Background Story
Once banned by an alliance of mortals and gods from the NationStates reality, the powerful TheVeggyKing, makes use of a loophole in the structure of the universe to reconnect to our dimensions.

However, to be able to lift his curse, he has to regain power over parts of NationStates.

By mischance, this loophole solely allows him to enter the pantry of the bar on the corner.

Deprived of alternatives, TheVeggyKing offered the greediest person in the bar a lucrative deal upon which the barman agrees to help forming a deadly army for him

--> The Legion of the Cuke.


Since the evil veggy king is trapped in the pantry, he won't get all the information about the Legion's actual activity. Thus, the Legion will also be able to do other stuff, like rescuing pretty princesses etc.

State of the roleplay is currently...
... that the bar is hiring 'adventurers' for the Legion of the Cuke but there are just rumors why.
TheVeggyKing and the Legion members haven't met yet.

Victim Region

go to Legion of the Cuke region
go to Legion of the Cuke description


The Victim Region

The 'Victim Region' is the region that is inviting the Legion of the Cuke and is hosting the Roleplay Event, which can be a quest or battle of the Legion.

Especially in case of a battle the 'Victim Region' will determine which course the battle takes and will usually be victorious while the Legion of the Cuke withdraws.

Thus, the hosting regions are not really 'victims'...
