    Steam Name: Garry

    Steam ID:STEAM_0:0:29049280

    How long have you been roleplaying?: About 9 years, give or take.

    Any experience having this auth before? During the time I spent roleplaying, I usually gravitated towards realistic scenarios, mostly law enforcement or military simulation, and I have a lot of experience in roleplaying a modern gunfighter. I have access to a large archive of NATO military and western LEO manuals to help me in creating related scenarios, as well as reacting to other characters in fashion expected of the character with such background and skill set. I’ve also led and assisted in leading numerous groups connected one way or the other to these or similar auths, so I am confident that I have enough experience to operate them.

    What are you applying for?: I am applying for a list of authorizations. If part of this list seems excessive to you, do comment and I’ll scale it down.
    ·         Light Blackmarket Flag, so I am able to supply this group’s beginnings, as well as to use it as a tool to connect group’s roleplay with other factions and lone characters, be it underground trade, supply drops, possible anti-black market raids and such. The items IC will come from stashes the group organized before current events and obviously will be limited, with major supplies being exhausted in the duration of five months since the start of current events.
    ·         Funding, a small bit to gear group members in essential stuff so we can move on straight to working towards our in character goals, thus creating roleplay.
    ·         PET Flags, so we can construct points of interest, hideouts and other roleplay settings for the group and the rest of the community.
    ·         Personal equipment, to assist my character in displaying an authentic image of militiaman and ensure that he has expected survivability of such character. Equipment that I’d like to request is:
    - M4A1(without mods, 10 in barrel)
    , serviceable rifle with most common caliber in the U.S.. Can be owned by citizens of California in AR-15 semi-automatic rifle variant that could be later converted to select-fire. As well as authentic hand-me-downs M4s from U.S. Military available to local police and sheriff department’s SWAT teams and high ranking patrolmen.
    OR(if previous is no go)
    - Remington 870(12 gauge), popular multi-purpose pump-action shotgun that is legal to own in California and is used by civilians for hunting, sporting and home defense purposes, by Police and Sheriff departments as cruiser-stored backup longarm, by SWAT teams as door breaching device and to deliver lethal and non-lethal load to the suspect. Also used by U.S. Military for door breaching purposes.
    OR(if previous two are no go)
    - Colt 1911, a classic handgun that is legal to purchase and own in the state of California if one obtains a license for it. Also used by law enforcement, most famous being LAPD SWAT’s Kimber TLE II modified 1911s.
    - Low-Profile plate carrier with level III Steel plates, Available to common citizen at medium prices, steel plates are heavier than ceramic ones, but can serve much longer than their lighter counterpart. Such body armor is also used by security guards, SWAT teams, private contractors and such.
    - Ammunition (90 rounds for primary, 30 vervein and 30 silver rounds)
    - Basic survival Gear, like military rations and canned food as well as medical kit, rope and utility knife. Also a few pairs of handcuffs.
    Why should you have this?: Each point describes in detail the exact reason why me and the group require these authorizations. Once combined, these authorizations will permit us to stand as the opposition to F.E.A.R. task force, filling a currently empty niche in the current canon and by doing that, creating roleplay for all characters be they human, fable, FEAR operator or whoever else. Through guerilla warfare, support of black market, assistance to those who are targeted by the task force, raids, propaganda, recruitment, task assigning, possibly becoming the mediators between other playerbased groups and numerous other situations, we hope to give at the very least a majority of characters a purpose that doesn’t just involve walking around and staring at landscapes.

    Backstory:
    In September of 2001, The United States of America experienced one of the most deadly and daring terrorist attacks in world’s history. Four hijacked commercial flights, with passengers still on board, were deliberately crashed into towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon itself, causing deaths of roughly three thousand American citizens, billions upon billions of damage and world-wide panic. These attacks changed lives of the entire nation and countless families, including the Carver family of Nick Carver, the 18 year old young man, who was about to enroll into Californian State University of his hometown of San Bernardino to study criminal justice, and his father Richard, 44 year old widower and the owner of a car service business. On one side, family’s business started to attract more clients, mostly state’s services that struggled to acquire the best equipment available, including upgraded vehicles, in case of a follow up attack that would require even faster response if the officials wanted to have a better chance of saving lives. On the other, 9/11 and the proclamation of war against Afghanistan not a month later caused a massive surge in new recruits pooling into the U.S. Military, including a lot of Nick’s friends, buddies or simply those who he knew. Either it was a very strong sense of patriotism, the shock from the events of September or mix of both, it’s still hard to say, but what was clear to Nicholas is that he couldn’t just stay behind as the justice was delivered to those who committed these atrocities. And so, he dropped out of the university and went straight for the Army recruiter. Picked up for infantryman assignment, Nick left for Fort Bragg in the late October to be deployed six months later into Afghanistan with 10th Mountain Division.


    Even though the success of initial operations against Taliban and Al-Qaeda forces was great, Nicholas very quickly realized that his fellow troops, especially the higher tier operators, exercised their own kind of justice. It wasn’t uncommon for special operations task forces to rack up a large collateral kill count during the ops, be it suspected enemy combatants or civilians, going as far as to destroy entire villages just because they were permitted to do so by the command. Events of Operation Anaconda marked the beginning of Nick’s eye opening that would later reshape his views on many things, including the U.S. Military. By the Summer of 2002, the situation was de-escalated and days full of action were replaced by days of routine as the Taliban decided to lick their wounds before resuming the conflict in 2003. For bad or for good, Nick was no longer stationed in Afghanistan by the Summer of next year as he and his comrades were deployed into Iraq to take part in Operation Iraqi Liberation (later renamed Iraqi Freedom).  Swift and decisive offensive of NATO forces managed to bring Saddam’s loyalists down and resulted in the end of his regime. Contrary to expectations of command and the troops(including Nick himself), the local populace did not meet them as liberators or heroes and proceeded to combat the invading forces with guerilla tactics during and after the ending of the operation, prompting a lengthy post-invasion campaign against so called “Anti-Iraqi forces”. The tactics deployed in this campaign were controversial at best, and included alarming amounts of psychological warfare and attacks on local culture and believes as well as “preventive measures”. Nick himself took part in such operation in the late 2004, a local community was reported to have ties with anti-NATO guerillas and a plan was devised. His unit was ordered to sabotage the water treatment facilities in order to put psychological pressure on community inhabitants. Within few days, a humanitarian aid in the form of a water truck arrived to the village and offered the locals water supplies for free as long as they allowed the U.S. military convoy to gather their biometric data. Desperate enough to submit, the identities of villagers were catalogued and cross-referenced with intelligence gathered from similar operations in other parts of the region to capture or kill hiding guerillas and their affiliates.. In 2005, after four bloody years of service and countless days of morally questionable anti-insurgency operations, Carver’s active duty part of the contract came to an end, allowing him to return back home.


    Disillusioned by the events in the Middle East, Nicholas decided not to pursue a military career and re-enrolled into the university to resume his studies. For his free time, he went to online political forums, discussing deployment experiences of others and his own. In the next few years, the situation in Middle-East escalated and with world-wide disapproval of NATO offensive in Iraq, he looked back to times of his military service and quickly came to conclusion that the war he participated in surely was not because of WMDs or because of oppression of innocents, neither was it for justice as the first to be taken were oil rather than key cities and military structures. Another thing he realized that after Iraq and Afghan situation ends, tactics deployed there are going to be used elsewhere, including the possibility of domestic use. He found that he wasn’t alone in such assumptions as many online communities he frequented started to discuss related topics, though most of them at the time were dismissed by majority of posters as conspiracy theories. Though things changed relatively fast and by the time Nick left college with Bachelor’s degree in 2009, the idea of American government doing something wrong, as combat operations resumed in middle east, still combating local forces eight years later as well as cases of anti-constitutional activity from the federal government, including violations of first and second amendments, prompted the rebirth of the constitutional militias and other NGOs dedicated to defending this sacred document. After his graduation, Nicholas was contacted by Michael Wallace, the deputy chief of San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department’s Administrative Services division and was invited to become a deputy. Wallace was friends with Nick’s father, who helped out the department by servicing and modifying their park of cruisers at a discount, and when he heard of Nick’s graduation, he decided to return the favor by granting Richard’s son an employment. Wrapping up his training by the spring of 2010, he was assigned to Patrol Operations Division I, working on the streets of his hometown as well as surrounding countryside. Around same time, Deputy Chief Wallace offered Nick to participate in newly formed Oath Keepers movement dedicated to advocating their members to reject any orders from their superiors that they believed to violate The Constitution of The United States of America. Already disappointed in the governments’ past actions, he took up the offer and joined up. In next few years, Carver’s career progressed as he managed to perform within his superiors’ expectations, with zero disciplinary actions against him by 2013. In March of same month, ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden came to public with numerous documents exposing the federal government and it’s agencies in indiscriminate surveillance, violations of constitution and countless other controversial actions that shook the world no less than the events that took place eleven years ago in New York City. A month later, America came under terrorist attack once more, as two domestic terrorists of Chechen origin detonated bombs at annual Boston Marathon, resulting in three deaths and over two hundred injuries. The controversy of this event came later as local and Federal LEOs deployed to the streets of Boston and surrounding areas with heavy duty military gear, initiated martial law and proceeded to perform warrant-less door to door searches in hopes of hunting down the suspects of the bombing. In the end, the suspect was found not by countless officers of the law, but by a civilian after the martial law was lifted, displaying to the nation how incompetent but overly armed their peacekeepers were. Both of these events took a great toll on Nicholas, losing faith in the government and his fellow Law Enforcement Officers as well as knowing that if such order came through to him, he’d be unable to complete it, and made him attempt to quit his job with the SBCSCD. His attempt though was stopped by the same Deputy Chief Wallace, who, understanding of Carver’s motives, offered him to transfer from his patrol division into Training sub-division of the Administrative branch, where he could avoid such orders and assist in making a better generation of LEOs, as his past with U.S. Army could be useful in training new deputies in firearms and tactics. Wallace also offered Nick to join up with a group he started in response to the events of March and April, himself affected by the information leaked and the actions of his colleagues in Boston, named The New Minutemen. This group was supposed to act as local branch of Oath Keepers militia wing, recruiting fellow LEOs as well as civilians to train and prepare them for any terrorist attacks on the county as well as defense against Federal government’s swift fall into fascist state. The group already had few SBCSCD deputies in it and was unofficially endorsed by current County Sheriff, who himself participated in Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, organization related to the Oath Keepers, but ultimately independent, so Carver caved into his superior’s persuasion and became part of the group. By Summer of 2013, Nick began working part-time as Assistant Range Master at the Firearms Training Center, granting him first-hand experience with tactics and equipment deployed by agencies all over California, also giving him enough spare time to begin working closely with The New Minutemen. For the next year, the group worked hard to train its growing number of members and prepare contingency plans in case of emergency, creating stockpiles of gear and supplies, preparing communications with militiamen and getting in contact with similar organizations across CA and neighboring states. Sometime in 2014, The United States once again was surprised, not by a terrorist attack but by apparent existence of super naturals such as werewolves and vampires. At first it was disregarded as a hoax, but soon, with countless evidence of such things existing in the U.S., everyone was forced to realize that these subjects lived within the population for quite some time. Special forces were immediately set up to combat the alarming rate at which “Fable” crime grew as LEOs raced to assemble new tactics and gear to suppress this phenomena. Many departments, including Nick’s own, began to purchase lethal ammunition from DHS, supposed to be able to defeat these supernatural attackers, and started running drills with it, but were ultimately not fast enough to wrap it all up by the time of LA riots and martial law follow-up. LAPD, LASD and CHP ended up being unprepared for this and requested for assistance from Federal agencies and other Californian departments, among these was SBCSCD. Though the sheriff at first considered lending deputies to Los Angeles, but after he was presented with current plan of riot suppression that involved overt lethal attacks on rioters without a chance to react, he refused. As situation escalated nation-wide and FEAR task force began to target and imprison or kill all super natural elements, an order for Sheriff’s arrest was issued. Backed by his deputies and one of The New Minutemen’s squads led by Wallace, he holed up in Central Station and refused to surrender to arriving Federal LEOs, forcing them to assault the station. Those inside opened fire upon assault teams, beginning bloody combat that resulted in complete wipe-out of the locals inside, including The Sheriff and most of department’s high command. Nick managed to escape the fate of his comrades as his group was assigned to cover one of the possible escape routes. When the shooting ended and he was unable to contact anyone inside, it finally got through to him. A decade of War on Terror culminated right before his very eyes with Federal Government striking against its own citizens, killing or imprisoning all who stood in their way. The official rhetoric of pacifying the supernaturals couldn’t hold up as almost everyone with half a brain could realize that there was no legal basis for such actions as most fables were still American citizens and branding them all criminals wasn’t an attempt to bring justice, but rather remove the unliked element that could quickly change from “Supernaturals” to a much broader group. And so they resorted to performing what could be described only as Holocaust as citizens from all levels of life were taken away or gunned down by paramilitary Federal force. Most of local enforcers abandoned their posts, but contrary to expectations the U.S. military remained under government’s command, throwing the country into unrest and Anarchy. The expectations and conspiracies came true and Nicholas Carver had no other option but to uphold the oaths he gave to this country and it’s citizens, he and his group raided the armories of his firearms training center, harvesting weaponry, ammunition and protective equipment, before disappearing into the country-side.



    In the next five months, Nick, taking up the name of “Washington” in respect of one of the founding fathers as well as commander-in-chief of American forces during the revolution, and his group engaged in reconnaissance of tactics and movements of government forces while trying to establish contact with similar groups outside of the county in hopes of mounting a proper resistance against the fascists. Eventually their supplies started to slowly run dry and the decision was made for the group to relocate into Los Angeles County as many managed to escape the LA massacres and could be willing to join forces with Washington’s efforts and begin to face against the FEAR task force with guerilla warfare…

    Do you agree that you will use these responsibly, and understand these can be taken away at any time? Yes, of course.

    Well, it doesn't have a morally high ground from the viewpoint of an average joe and it's methods are exactly what conspiracy theorists have wet dreams about. Also, isn't there already an anti-fable PBG? If they're still active, I suspect they'd support FEAR.

    The government basically handed control over to F.E.A.R., while there are plenty of people who oppose F.E.A.R. there is a lack of an organized group imho.

    Currently denied, due to FEAR no longer existing. Feel free to touch it up and repost it as a separate group, though.
