1. IC Intro


The recent razing of Edgeville by the Kinshra created quite the problem for the small town. With the few stores the town had now little but ash and wood fragments, Edgeville's economy was in quite dire straits. At least, that's what everyone thought.

A little while after, various flyers kept appearing around Misthalin and Asgarnia.

"Liruk's Imports and Exports, located in Edgeville! Come pay us a visit, we're far from your average general store!"

Attached were pictures of various exquisite, often foreign equipment. Perhaps it could be a boon to Edgeville.

OOC Intro


Howdy! I felt that RSRP was missing an old-school mafia type group. You know, more The Godfather than the GTA IV Russian Mafia. With some input from some dear friends, I decided to found The Vermarine Crime Syndicate. We're a non-combat, apolitical RP faction based more around supplying people economically, starting/settling gang issues and acquiring interesting goods than we are about politics. Expect GM'd events, shady dealings, and pretending to be acting like a good old fashioned crime family!

3. General Rules + Guidelines


1. Adhere to standard RP guidelines on godmodding, metagaming, overpowering, etc etc you know this already.

2. Be polite. This is a fun RP faction. Treat people with respect, have fun, all that good jazz.

3. This isn't a sandbox RP, so please abide by the general lore and conventions of Runescape and RSRP.

4. Please ask questions. I am quite absent minded and chances are I'll forget something. It's good for both of us if you keep me and other superiors right.

5. Settle any IC disputes with the supervision of a superior.

6. Please leave OOC grievances at the door, as well as OOC loyalties and all that other nonsense.

7. Deposit 5m into my personal savings

4. Information/Roles


Information


From a dusty dossier of a long dead spymaster

The "Vermarine Syndicate" is run by one Rohesia Liruk. Born to the Liruk family in Kandarin, her family was quite wealthy, but eventually displaced due to years of political turmoil. Rohesia appears to be the last one alive, and she has inherited quite the fortune. My investigations have turned up nothing concrete, but rumours indicate she runs her family with two "arms". It would appear that-

The dossier ends abruptly, torn out with the words "DON'T" smeared on the remaining blank pages

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OOC time, phew. The Vermarine Syndicate aims to keep balance in Gielinor, by supporting both the working class AND the rich, and tearing either group down when possible. Liruk's Imports and Exports is our front, to ensure all profit is "on the books".

We operate with two arms;

The Arm of the Snake deals in blackmail, interrogation, smuggling, illegal drugs production, and "accidents". No Snake member is visibly associated with the Vermarine's in case of capture. While not trained in combat, they are still equipped with either a dagger or some form of knuckle implement.

The Arm of the Swan deals with bartering, legal production, material harvesting, meetings, and advertisement. All Swan members must be polite, charismatic, and manipulative. The Swans are our "face", and our face must be as pretty as possible. Swans are unarmed, as we do not send them into danger without Snakes.

ROLES


Arm of the Snake


Roles listed in order from lowest priority to highest

Enforcer
- The muscle of the Vermarine, and the most common Snake. Their duties involve keeping storefronts safe, but also protecting storage houses and potentially dealing with rivals.

Caster
- No, not the mage. Casters are our legal name for those producing illegal drugs, potions and equipment banned in any nations. They're typically assigned to one production area, and giving an ID number to prevent spies.

Viper
- Vipers deal with the nitty gritty; blackmail, "accidents", interrogation. A Viper must first be trained in torture resistance before officially becoming one.

Spider
- Spiders are our "asset retrieval" guys. If something is stolen, or Rohesia requires something, the Spiders do it. Not trained in combat, but trained expertly in espionage.

Python
- The second most important Snake, the Pythons are in charge of keeping everyone else in line, Swans included. If need be, Pythons will eliminate any liabilities within the organisation.

Hand
- Every arm has a hand. The hand of the Snake answers directly to Rohesia, and controls every other Snake there is. There can only be one Hand at any given moment, and the Hand can promote or demote anyone.

Finally, each rank barring Hand has a "Solid" and "Liquid" variation. Liquids are newbies, Solids have been here for quite some time. This is totally not a blatant MGS reference.

SWANS ON THE NEXT PAGE, SORRY BOUT THAT

ROLES


Arm of the Swan


Roles listed in order from lowest priority to highest

Swallow
- The Vermarine travellers, Swallows scout Gielinor in search of trade opportunities, or opportunities to supply factions. Given the nature of their job, they carry daggers just in case.

Robin
- Robins are our main producers. They produce the various legally tradeable goods for the Vermarine Syndicate. Unlike Casters, Robins move between production centers but do have an ID number.

Skimmer
- Skimmers are our gatherers. They journey to places marked by Swallows and gather as many materials as they can. Often protected by someone from The Snake Arm.

Songbird
- Songbirds are our diplomats. If Rohesia or a Hand is unavailable, a Songbird will be sent in their stead. Easily the most charismatic of the two Arms, Songbirds also tend the stores and shops when needed.

Hawk
- Hawks are the Swan counterpart to the Python. Hawks are responsible for keeping the Swans in check, but unlike the Python are more interested in keeping their underlings safe and secure, rather than compliant or dead.

Hand
- Every arm has a hand. The hand of the Swan answers directly to Rohesia, and controls every other Swan there is. There can only be one Hand at any given moment, and the Hand can promote or demote anyone.

Leader?


The Vermarine Syndicate only has one leader at any given time, who is the main public face of the company, which is known publicly as "Liruk's Imports + Exports". Currently Rohesia Liruk is the leader, known as Mother Hen.
