Knights of the resistance(RP)

In a peaceful town in the Koprulu sector asteroid belt, a political uprising is on the verge of happening.
After new regulations on the town people, and the increase of taxes, the towns population was getting more and more unruly. The Umojan protectorate was using the money for the taxes for the conscription and production of soldiers and weaponry for the war against the Zerg. A chunk of the money mysteriously vanishes every year...
However, there are people that dislike the Umojan protectorate and believe they can do a better job in ruling the Asteroid belt. A group called the resistance was formed to destroy the Protecterate, and drive them out of the town.
Meanwhile, a group of covert units called the Shadow guards was formed by the protectorate for the purpose of attempting to eliminate the Resistance, through dialogue or violence.
The small town of Alias was going to undergo a huge change...

Town center- An open area in the heart of the metropolis. It connects to several roads. Occasionally busy, sometimes empty.

Coffee shop- A small restaurant hidden in a quiet corner of town. A series of tables in the back are sheltered, and far away from most prying ears.

Shopping mall-A group of stores off of Second street. Often crowded, the cover of the crowd can help a person dodge a pursuer, and can mask some conversations, as well as foiling bugs.

Residential areas- a set of houses, owned by the citizens. A lone city security camera that rotates like clockwork keeps an eye on the area.

Turnabout alley-An alleyway connected to the protectorate avenue. Dark narrow and winding. Also a shortcut to The residential areas. Watch out for muggers!
Connects to three secret tunnels

Second street- A normal street. There is the occasional peddler, and streetear.

Protectorate avenue- A well maintained, solid concrete street. The occasional pedestrian walks along this path. It is brightly lit during the night, so in this area, no debuffs for darkness will take place.

The capital building-the place where the governing body controls the city. Only Shadowguards, and certain people are allowed access. Outsiders can only see a massive stone wall.

The highway- Its a highway. What do you expect?

The old construction site- A half finished construction area that was never finished. A group of potential allies, and a few gangs, wander around here. The skeleton of the half finished building looks over a grassy area covered with weeds.

The sewer system.-A sewer system going under the majority of the city. Its snaking passageways are incredibly difficult to navigate.
Rats, sewage workers, and even the occasional crocodile and feral animal wander the sewage system.
An extensive security network is in place under the capital.

This RP will be formed by characters from both the resistance, and the Protectorate Shadow guards. Actions must be logical, and follow the information given to that character. EG if a member of the resistance is given the location of the secret base, then A shadowguard can't simply decide to investigate that area. You will have to keep in mind what your character knows, and what he doesn't know. After successful missions, that will occasionally be given out in both of the Resistance's and Shadowguards Secret bases, upgrades will be given out to the participants. There will be a day night cycle. Your characters must sleep every now and then. During the night hours, all characters, except the ones with certain skills, will lose part of their sight range, and navigation skills(Running through alleyways, ect)

(Exchange of information) Eavesdropping, and wiretapping can be used by both the Shadowguards, and the Resistance. Be aware of your surroundings! Speaking directly to a known member of the resistance in front of a shadowguard is suicide.
The use of moles, Assassination, theft of secret documents, and double agents is permitted and encouraged.

I, as the DM, will decide if an action is out of line. For example, walking into a room for no apparent reason just after a mole posts he is in the room stealing papers is out of line. Make sure your character has a reason when visiting certain areas! Set up appointments, Form alliances and arrange meetings. Be creative. If I am not here, after observing the actions of the RPers, I will set up a chain of command, that if I am missing, the next in. Line will temporarily become the new DM.
Characters can and will die in this RP. Just a heads up.
The Resistance-
This band of men and women fight in order to drive out the Protectorate. Every member of the resistance can eavesdrop on conversations to gather information. Playing as the resistance means having worse equipment, but not having to worry about finding the Shadowguards(although it would be helpful). All they have to do is strike against the protectorate, and avoid capture. The resistance also have the advantage of knowledge of the town's multiple alleyways, and use it for a quick escape route, however this advantage will go away over time, as the Shadowguards will learn to navigate the alleyways.
Resistance classes-

Scout- These fast units are the lookouts, and the information gatherers of the resistance. These units often go undercover to plant bugs, and follow officials of the protectorate. They often work with the sharpshooters in order to stage assassinations.
Weaponry-Hidden knife- range 1
Small handgun.
Default skills- (Plant Bug) plant a listening device onto a target to gather information in a certain location.
(Plant tracking device) Plant a tracking device onto a vehicle or a person. However you must distract the person before planting the device.
(Speed vehicle) the scout can pilot any light, fast vehicle. (Vultures, ect)
(Com link)Can connect to and send messages to one individual with the comlink skill. Messages can be hacked.
(Leg booster) Once every five pages, the Scout gains the ability to jump extraordinary distances.
Unique skills(Choose one!)
(Smokescreen) Drop a smoke screen to cover a retreat or to cover an area from sniper fire.
(Reflex) increase one's combat reflexes to Obtain a 20% dodge rate.
(Instinct) gets an uneasy feeling when interacting with a member of the Shadowguards. Will not merit an investigation, but can make a Scout want to plant a tracking device.

Information hunter.
These units are the people that destroy the information that the Shadowguards are gathering. With the skills to detect, disarm, and destroy bugs, as well as the ability to hack into and wiretap information being transmitted, these units are necessary for hamstringing investigation efforts. Some information hunters can use disguises in order to provide an alibi for Snipers, if a Shadowguard starts to notice that the sniper is missing, or has no alibi during several assassinations.Occasionally, information hunters do have limited psionic powers.
Weapons are selected by the players
Default skills
(Com-link)- can connect with one other person with the comlink skill.
(Bug scanner)-use a resistance made, rudimentary device in order to scan for bugs, and tracking devices. However, the machine looks suspicious. Be careful when using the bug scanner.
(Hack) uses a computer to hack into the Shadow guards network, to gather or destroy information. This skill doesn't always work, and the effects of the hacking is decided by the DM. Hacking can lead to the hacker being traced, so it isn't always the best idea.
(Pattern recognition)- notice a face, shadow, or car that has appeared consistently over a period of time. Use this skill to determine if you are being followed.
Escape route- Have a perfect knowledge of the town's layout.
unique skills(Choose one)
Disguise- disguise yourself as another member of the resistance or as a shadowguard. However, keep in mind this will attract suspicion if someone reports seeing the disguised person far away from the actual person.
(Repair)- repair a vehicle, weapon, or bunker.
(One psionic ability) select a psionic ability. If it is approved, then the information hunter gains it.

Snipers are the gunmen of the resistance using high powered sniper rifles, and semi automatic pistols to eliminate targets from a long distance. However, an observant person can determine the direction of the shot.
Being a sniper means communication with the people at the front line, and often work well in conjunction with scouts.
As Snipers have a sight range of 8, (9-10 if on a roof) another unit, will relay information to the sniper in order for them to shoot their maximum range.
Eg, Scout sends data to information Hunter, who then precisely determines to place to shoot, who sends data to the sniper.
Mark-4 sniper rifle- Range-13
Default skills.
(Snipe)- The sniper has a 100% kill rate on an unsuspecting target. However, all Shadowguards automatically have a suspicion of getting shot at. This skill is primarily used in assassinating politicians, and silencing resistance members that were captured.
(Covering fire)-use a unique sniper rifle bullet that splits into several smaller bullets to do light AOE damage.
Stun grenade- throw a small grenade that is designed to disorient, and blind enemy units. Set a tripwire, to create a trap.
Memory- Memorize facial features, such as eye color, widows peak, and physical traits, from a single glance.
Unique skills. choose one
(Vanish)-hide oneself in the shadows. Unless someone is directly looking for the sniper, the sniper will not be seen. IE(Use it for getting into position)
(Timebomb)- plant a Timebomb to distract people from your area, or to disrupt movement from the enemy if you time it right. Although it is non-lethal, it will seriously main anyone in the blast radius.Set it using a post system.(bomb is going off in 10 posts)
Posters must act as if they had never seen the threat.

These units are the handymen, and the machine experts of the Resistance. Building combat droids, and sabotaging enemy bases are the joys of the life of the mechanic. From mech walker suits, to precision weapons, the Mechanic is the unit with the most firepower in the resistance. However, the mech walker is not very inconspicuous, and attracts a lot of attention. This is horrible in sensitive situations. Their skills at piloting however allow them to be great drivers of getaway vehicles.
Default skills
-Mech prototype.
Summons a pilot-able humanoid robot. Weapons to equip this robot can be upgraded. The default robot has an auto turret attached to its shoulder.
Repair any mechanical unit.
-Pilot mastery.
Can pilot any vehicle, given 5 minutes to study it.

Keycard- create a fake key card to enter sensitive areas. Will not open doors to high security areas
Greater comlink- communicate with up to five members of the resistance using the comlink. Through the user of greater comlink, units using comlink can interact online. However, if the user of greater comlink gets taken out, then the connection is lost.

???- random skill
???- random skill.
Unique skills-Choose two

The Shadowguards... The shadowguards exist to hunt down and destroy the resistance,

Night walker-
These Shadowguards hide in the darkness with night vision goggles, and watch the streets for suspicious activity.
During the day, they walk the streets wearing normal clothing over a nano suit that drastically increases their physical capabilities. Moving as fast as a Resistance scout, they are the hunters of the agents of the resistance.

Armor slayer- Deal more damage to vehicles, or buildings.
Lethal instinct-Deal more damage to infantry units.
Undying will-After an hour of being dead, remotely activated drugs will cause the blade master's heart, lungs, and other organs to begin to function again.

The information gatherers, and the hackers of the Shadowguards, Phantoms are the units that make things happen. Tricky and nimble, they are also effective somewhat on the battlefield.

Videocamera- plant a device that can secretly take up to one day, or one night of video, and three days of audio.
Pickpocket-Quickly, and stealthily steal an item, from a passerby or target.
Advanced Disguise-Disguise oneself as anyone. The phantom can copy the voice, habits(If they know of them), face, and body of anyone they met before, or have an accurate description of. When the phantom meets someone face to face, the disguise is flawless. However, in the case of a description, small mistakes are visible, but overlooked.

Maybe give a melee unit to the Resistance.

I'm not sure if melee units really fit with the resistance. Covertly assassinating people isn't really well done face to face.

Alright, when we get a few more people we will start. Or when We get a few more people and I get back.
We need more people in the Shadowguards...
