@IceHeart Gotcha. I'll have something written up sometime soon.
I should have just started off with some action right away and just had everyone get together from the get-go, oh well. Alright so lost two people so before anything else can happen let me just see who is actually willing to go on.

Rollcall

@Indra
@Pie Flavor
@LukasVolkov
@vancexentan Well I know you'll stay but had to call out anyway.
@Hawthorne Did Plank ever get back to you?

Alright so...the main thing now is down to two servants again. Which we can roll with but probably could use another one. I can take up the servant slot, however if someone else wants it now is the time.

We'll figure it out after I get my roll call.


Unfortunately, he did not get back to me. I guess he's no longer interested. I on the other hand, still am. Would you rather I wait for this action post before posting, or should I go with an introduction post?

@Plank Sinatra

If you're still interested in playing, I can take Kintoki on as my own Servant now that I've been accepted. If you still feel like quitting the RP though, that's no skin off of my back. Just let me know so that I can adjust my post accordingly.
@Hawthorne Rune magic route is pretty interesting. Echidna not Echnidna, for some reason that just rubbed me the wrong way ha ha. So like with another profile I mentioned it could use a bit of sprucing up to make the profile really pop out. Add in some Bold font, make sure all the paragraphs are easily seen, etc.

Well partially I went with my own version of the Nasuverse, so that I wouldn't have to get too bogged down with all the lore and stuff. Shouldn't be too much of a problem. After you make some chances I'll give it another look over.


Took your suggestions into account and added some formatting. Sorry about the Echidna thing; I'm usually a little better about typos, but I guess this one slipped underneath the radar. Let me know if there's anything else I can fix up.
Here's my application. Please let me know if there are any errors or kinks that I need to work out. I will admit, I'm not too knowledgable about the Nasuverse, so any corrections would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.


Hello. I just looked over this and found myself intrigued. Are you still accepting applications? If so, I might be interested in joining. If not though, that's fine.
The roar of the waves, the constant downpour of rain, and the distant crackle of thunder did little to steady the beating of Ryon's heart. He was below deck, seated at one of the tables. The time for maintenance has long since passed. All he did was stare at his hands as he contemplated the upcoming battle. Ryon was glad to serve in the vanguard, and this was far from his first voyage on a seafaring vessel, but he could not shake the trepidation from his being. He sipped from a flask of soju, but no more than a taste. Any more would dull his senses.

A woman's voice barked orders from above. The Amatsuna heiress who had so graciously granted the Five Faction Concord their ships would be joining this battle. They were simple: to make ready for contact. The lieutenant gave his men a wild grin and rose to his feet. "You heard the lady, let's get up there." His forces responded in kind. His particular squad only truly consisted of volunteer soldiers who wished to be at the front; it was no surprise to anyone that many men in Jinju were not exactly keen on traveling to foreign lands to die in a war against the undead. Still, where these men may have lacked in talent or experience, they made up for in spirit.

Ryon gripped the Red Meteor in hand, inspecting the arbalest for only a moment before properly pulling the lever and stringing the fire mechanism. Even now, he could feel her soul giving life to this weapon. He would do her proud. He could spot his fellow men from Hang-jun stride out of the decks with their own equipment. Some had blades and shields in hand, whilst others had crossbows of their own. The lieutenant was quick to follow behind. The battle would be joined soon enough.

The ship hit the docks with a heavy thud, the very impact causing more than a few men to fall off-balance. A storm of arrows erupted from the dock. "Shields up!" Ryon boomed, his voice echoing across the dock. His squad was quick to respond, raising their deungpae to block the oncoming projectiles. The man and his fellow crossbowmen hid behind their barriers, but not all were as lucky. Some men were slow or had been knocked down by the initial impact and were struck dead. Others had simply had the ill-fate to suffer a wound this early on. It seemed that these creatures were substituting quantity over quality. "Return fire!" The lieutenant commanded, his own marksmen doing as he asks. A staccato of bolts and arrows found their marks in various places, but many had instead failed to hit the target. The shot from his own crossbow tore a bloody hole in the head of one of the unresting. The man grinned, but wisely decided to hide behind the shield of another soldier before another volley came.

Ryon ordered his men to push forward. Most of the vanguard had entered the streets already and were doing battle with the Unresting there. Their opponents were nothing spectacular. They would be little more than peasants to cut down, had they not been tainted by the sanguine plague. When a man at the front was to strike at a ghoul, he would quickly be sprayed down by a torrent of arrows from above. How troublesome, the man thought to himself. In between shots, the man threw ceramic bombs up onto the roofs and buildings where the enemy archers hid themselves. The resulting explosion would quickly silence those emplacements.

"Not one step back! Move forward and find some cover!" The lieutenant commanded as he fired a crossbow into the brain of an oncoming ghoul. They could not afford this battle to become one of attrition.

The undead would most certainly win that.
Name: Ryon Hyun-Shik

Age: 42

Origin: Hang-Jun, the Fortress.

Appearance:

Personality: A friendly, jovial man with just the barest hint of arrogance, forged by a silent pride that had up until recently, remained unbroken. In spite of his rugged appearance, Ryon is remarkably well-learned, especially when it came to arithmetic and geometry. Regardless of his personality, the man has seen more than his fair share of bloodshed. His tactical acumen and years of experience make him an excellent choice for a commander. One notable thing about him is his distinct lack of honor on the battlefield; the way he sees it, the Undead are already at an advantage, so he would readily discard old traditions if it meant leveling the playing field. That being said, his intentions are nevertheless good. He's more inclined to perform ambushes and clandestine attacks if it means preserving the lives of his men.

However, while he easily gets along with men and women of all factions, he seems to have a burning hatred for the Undead. While the same could be said of all soldiers under the Five Faction Concord, his rage is zealous and unyielding. Ryon spares no mercy for those who have rejected their humanity. The same extends to their sympathizers and is only amplified towards the top brass: the Sanguine Nobles.

He fights for two simple reasons. To save Humanity, and to destroy those who have abandoned it.

Sacred Weapon: The Bulg-Eun Yuseong, or Red Meteor. This beast of an arbalest was the result of Ryon's multiple attempts to merge the Zhuge Nu (repeater crossbow) with the Weigong Nu (siege crossbow). The result was a powerful long range weapon capable of piercing lamellar. This weapon could fire five bolts in quick succession before requiring a reload. However, this design was not without flaws. Not only was the weapon immensely heavy and unwieldy, but it was also intricate, requiring constant maintenance, lest it fail on the battlefield. Additionally, while the rate of fire has increased due to the repeater design, the heavier bolts require sturdier casings. Due to the cumbersome cartridges, reloading the Red Meteor takes several moments, making it a gambit to attempt a reload in the middle of battle. Ryon must make every shot count.

Mundane weapons: A ubiquitous steel hwando for close encounters, standard issue for most soldiers. An ornate dagger with precious jade gemstones inset into its handle, a parting gift from a friend. If all goes well, he will not have to use either of these.

Equipment: Ryon's outfit does not deviate too much from a normal guardsman from the Fortress. He is covered in lamellar from head to toe, though his particular outfit is modified with extra straps and pouches to fit his extra gear. Soldiers have likened Ryon to a walking armory. When traveling, it's not uncommon to see his packs laden with armaments. Caltrops, steel wire, primers, grenades, fire bombs, smoke bombs, flash bombs, and the materials to produce more can be easily found with him.
