This took me a while to get together, sorry about that, but it’s finally done.
Feel free to add or take away any details you think necessary or unnecessary.
The Rebellion Roleplay Outline
(Events are sorted according to the times which they occurred at.)
August 2020 – January 2021
Nautilus Lightblast distributes Join the Rebellion tapes and cards to prominent figures in society’s mailboxes, then returns to his home in the Business District of No Man’s Landing to Mycroft, his robotic Aethermaton cat.
Eerie Coppernight arrives at Nautilus’ house at nine o’ clock in the evening, answers an admission question correctly, then comes inside.
Nautilus prepares some tea and scones, then admits Eerie to his office.
Nautilus and Eerie talk for a while about Rebellion business and Mycroft, before Nautilus gifts Eerie a duplicate model, who’s official model name is Feline Replicating Aethermaton Non Combat Initiative System, or F.R.A.N.C.I.S., for short, whom she names Sir Percivale, then sends her home with a contract.
Eerie goes home, signs the contract, then goes to bed.
Nautilus walks upstairs to his bedroom, and goes to bed.
Nautilus wakes up to strange sounds, runs to his walk-in closet workshop, and finds that Mycroft has been vandalizing one of Nautilus’ inventions, his Mechanized Utilities Lethal Technological Instrument, or M.U.L.T.I., for short.
Nautilus pushes Mycroft aside and fixes M.U.L.T.I. before scolding Mycroft, who nonchalantly leaves the closet.
Nautilus tests out M.U.L.T.I. in it’s whip form on a crate, and instead of doing visible damage, M.U.L.T.I. slices clean through the crate.
Nautilus tests out M.U.L.T.I. in it’s nunchucks form on the same crate, with the same results.
Nautilus realizes that Mycroft actually fixed M.U.L.T.I., and after commending Mycroft on his efforts, he goes downstairs and starts sketching the blueprints for Mycroft’s reward: A voice modulator.
Nautilus is suddenly interrupted by a telephone ring by a very special red telephone that never rings.
Nautilus answers the phone, and hears the Scarlet Man talking on the other end, who explains that a person who wants a fresh start will meet Nautilus at an abandoned warehouse in No Man’s Landing, but doesn’t specify which one before hanging up.
Nautilus ponders this, then realizes that the warehouse in question is warehouse 249, where he lived for a while when he was an Urchin in No Man’s Landing.
Nautilus hurries to the warehouse, but the door is locked. After further investigation, Nautilus finds a crate marked with a red nail, which he then opens to find a key and a cryptic note saying to use the key for this door, and all future ones.
Nautilus goes into the warehouse, and, much to his chagrin, finds it in complete disrepair. He straightens up a little before hearing wagon wheels outside, and footsteps.
Nautilus quickly goes to a secluded spot of the warehouse, fearing that Imperials may be coming, then watches as Beckendorf Direscope walks in.
Nautilus reveals himself, and has a conversation with Beckendorf that ends in panic when
Beckendorf freaks out after Nautilus points out the fact that Beckendorf is half human and half Aethermatron, then laughs at Beckendorf’s confusion and fear.
Beckendorf tries to run away, only to find that the warehouse door is blocked by a Lasher, who knocks Beckendorf unconscious.
Nautilus uses some of the spare dynamite and oil around the warehouse to improvise a trap and demolish the Lasher, who calls for reinforcements.
Nautilus tends to Beckendorf using his Aethermeter watch, and asks Beckendorf to join the Rebellion.
Before Beckendorf can answer, Lashers and other Automatons come inside the warehouse.
Nautilus and Beckendorf form a plan to destroy or immobilize most of the Automatons, and execute the plan. One of the Bombardiers fires a cannonball, hitting the back wall and exploding, causing a large hole to open up.
Nautilus and Beckendorf escape from the new hole in the wall, but not before an Automaton calls Nautilus out for being Lucky’s nephew.
Nautilus and Beckendorf stop to rest in an alley, only to discover that Beckendorf’s systems are overheating as he fades into unconsciousness once more.
Nautilus wonders what to do, then gets a flashback to his early childhood in Evercity, before realizing what his next step should be.
Nautilus disguises himself, improves a cart to transfer Beckendorf to, then pushes him in the direction of Eerie’s home.
Nautilus outwits an Imperial Autofficer and a Bombardier, then escapes to the rooftops of No Man’s Landing.
Eerie wakes up and goes about her morning, then starts singing.
Nautilus carries Beckendorf to the threshold of Eerie’s house, then rings the doorbell repeatedly before banging on the door.
Eerie hears the banging, then rushes to her door just as Beckendorf reaches consciousness once more.
Nautilus informs Eerie of their current situation, and just finishes when an Imperial Autofficer bangs on Eerie’s door, demanding she open up or him and his Automatons will be forced to come in.
Nautilus, Eerie, and Beckendorf escape through a secret passage in Eerie’s home leading through the underground catacombs of No Man’s Landing, before walking all the way to Evergreen Meadows, where they emerge from a rock.
What happens next?
Well, just keep an eye out for the next edition of the Rebellion roleplay.
It’ll be quite an interesting one, to say the least.
