    [Prologue] Twenty Kingdoms and the Great Sea

    Before the era of Marines fighting against Pirates in an effort to preserve the status of the sea, there was a time where kingdoms of all sizes and shapes rules islands and archipelagos under an iron fist. These kingdoms, scattered as they were, represented the superiors of the world hierarchy: The Twenty Kingdoms. Each kingdom had a different culture, a different ruler, and a different island to call their own, but all of them encountered the same problem one way or another.

    Despite the aristocrats and kings that were subjectively considered "good", corruption was pulsing through the veins of each and every government no matter the size or the structure. A blackened cesspool of hatred and malice was met with the white sheep of unbridled trust, and all who encountered it chose not to stray away from it. The kingdoms were the "only hope" for the world, the "one place" where people could maintain some sense of prosperity and safety. If one chose not to follow the rules of the kingdom, the violent sea was where they would be banished.

    Though try as they might, the fear of the sea would not stop some from avoiding oppression. The brave souls who built their own ships and sailed out into the open waters were known as Adventurers. The open sea was a place like no other. For better or worst, there we no laws, no leaders, no hierarchies, and no kingdoms. The sea was not ruled by anyone, and the only person oppressing you would be your own self-doubt. Anyone who tried to take that freedom away was met with valiant resistance. By hook or by crook, the freedom of the sea was maintained for decades.

    Enraged at how easily their citizens emigrated to the sea, the leaders of the Twenty Kingdoms met in secret to plot a massive counterrevolution against the Adventurers. It began with propaganda, telling people that they were free to leave if they would accept that they were nothing more than filthy pirates. Afterwards, the resources of multiple islands were combined to form a force against piracy: The Marines.

    While the Twenty Kingdoms were the driving force of the Marines, many small-scale kingdoms also contributed to this effort. As Marines rounded up Pirates and attempted to fight off outside influences, more and more kingdoms contributed to the power of the Marines in an effort to stop the growing revolt of Pirates. Subsequently, the Twenty Kingdoms broke down into a worldwide aristocracy known as the World Government. At the top of this government sat five individuals from the Twenty Kingdoms: The Gorosei.

    Over the next two centuries, Pirates and Marines clashed head to head across various seas. Islands were taken over, people were killed, citizens were corrupted, and both sides gained a power to match the other. Ultimately, the theoretical war between the two sides was tilted in the favor of the Marines, and the era of the Great Revolt was silenced. Now, many years after the construction of the Marines, an era of peace seemed to be at the brink of it's birth.

    Unfortunately, that wouldn't be the case for a long time to come.

    [Genesis] The Birth of Justice

    Major events came and went as the Marines struggled to establish how to regulate crime across the globe. The efforts of Jung-Hae and Juno on Combustion Island were prevalent as the latter saved the island's capital and assisted in its long-term success while the former took down Combustion Island's infamous Underground. Such successes were just as impactful to Marines like Anastacia, who managed to stop an ancient cult practice on the Volcano Archipelago before assisting the arrest of nearly everyone involved.

    Pirates and Revolutionaries, however, had their own successes. Irako managed to turn Joker Isle and Red Island on their heads after destroying political leaders and hunter clans alike. Baraka initiated the execution of major family heads on Warship Island, only to be followed by the actions of Yōo on Shimotsuki Island.

    Eventually, a means of ending such destruction was decided. Four candidates across the world were selected to fill a position within the Marines that stood directly under the head of the faction: the Admirals. Each Admiral was assigned to partake in an event across one of the Four Blues, and one such event ultimately turned into the start of the world's greatest revolution.

    [Genesis] The Counterforce

    The events in what was once Londonbridge Bay and Dubai City on Combustion Island shifted the balance of power in a way that would prove to be much to handle. Though the efforts of Neferpitou, Jung-Hae, and the Bird assisting Juno were valiant, Yōo and Spike succeeded in destroying the Marine Battleship. The negligence of Neferpitou resulted in his arrest, though he later made up for it in his contribution outside of the battle at sea.

    Jung-Hae apprehended the revolutionaries who overtook the Cruise Ship on the water with the help of Juno's bird, but the damage had been done by then. Irako, having been hired to assist the rescue effort, turned his back on the Marines and stole the Cruise Ship. When it seemed like things couldn't get any worst, Spike succeeded in infiltrating the island through the sewer system, gathering gunpowder, and releasing a massive explosion that dropped the Londonbridge onto the harbour, resulting in the death of many workers and citizens.

    After being apprehended by Gundyr, who entered the island alongside Anastacia, a trio of criminals was arrested for their crimes. Spike, Irako, and Drakath were sent to Dubai in order to be executed, though an elaborate escape attempt was constructed between the three. Ultimately, two escaped to Dubai while Irako was taken out by Gundyr.

    The start of the festival for Cang Du, the Admiral, began with very little issues. Neferpitou managed to prove his usefulness by enhancing security, though the effort was in vain by the time Lewin and his crew stepped in. The trio had already caused enough problems on the island, from recording the actions of Neferpitou and Irako in an attempt to frame the Marines to causing havoc across multiple cities. Irako supplemented this destruction by freeing prisoners while Ken started a fire in one of the event buildings.

    Ultimately, the festival was a disaster. Cang Du's efforts were negated by even more video footage shot by Lewin. His ultimate goal was to discredit the Marines and the World Government by showing how insignificant and useless they were in stopping the attack on the island and to say he was successful would only scratch the surface of the fruit of his labour.

    Three (3) Months have passed since the events of that day and nothing seems to be the same. The destruction of the Londonbridge meant that Combustion Island couldn't receive imports or send exports without additional help. The decrease in both imports and exports lead to a Great Depression on the island. Money wasn't circulating, people were starving, the gunpowder monopoly was losing power, and the effects could be seen in other parts of the world as well. The ammunitions industry was weakened by the loss in gunpowder as the demand for guns increased. Marines who had once relied so heavily on rifles and blunderbusses were now trained in the art of swordsmanship and archery.

    Subsequently, people began to lose trust in the Marines while Revolutionaries praised their success. A wave of change was washing over the world, one that brought men to sea in search of their own justice, or even their own freedom. This wave would come to be known as...

    • There has been a three-month time skip as indicated in this post. All players must abide by it and explain their actions since the skip.
    • Londonbridge Bay and Dubai City are temporarily inaccessible on Combustion Island to everyone unless a Narrator allows it.
    • The Genesis Event is now over. All threads have been closed and members are free to return to their plots.

    [Malice] Introduction of the Wicked

    ...The Great Pirate Era. An age derived from the malice of those adventurous souls who sprung out into the sea in search of freedom, adventure, gold and everything that lay in between. The grip the world government had on the world was opened. With the door opened and a mind full of optimism wide a new generation spread out across the four blues and some into the grand line. With the marines still licking their wounds from the events which transpired on Combustion Island, the point of origin which they sought to protect was taken right from under their nose. A revolutionary by the name of Spike Spiegel conquered the gun powder rich island overthrowing the marine presence completely, reviving the island's economy and ultimately uniting the people under the guise of the Revolutionary Army. Still in shock and awe the marines lost another point of territory. Across reverse mountain in the East Blue, Mubong Park did the same thing. Ripping another prominent marine threshold from their grasp in the form of Yotsuba Island.

    The Revolutionary might was spreading around the blues and gaining a foothold. But just as the faction was getting a firm grasp of power in the world. The World government responded with a strong message. In a broadcast to every major city on every island across the four blues and the grand line Admiral Cang Du took a stand. In the wake of one of the greatest embarrassments to the world government. The pillar of absolute justice stood before the camera with the two assets they captured from the event on Combustion Island. Revolutionaries Jen Cocoa and Michael Frey stood with their heads bowed, arms bound and knees bent. In between their two bodies stood Cang with his hands transformed into 2 long and sharp icy blades. He looked into the camera and spoke.

    "The actions of the Revolutionary Army shall not go unpunished. This is the consequence for those who tarnish the face of peace and freedom."

    The admiral swiftly slashed his two ice covered hands at the base of the two criminals necks, decapitating them in an instant. The transmission ended and the world went silent for a moment. As the scales of power slightly tilted back in favor of the world government. This was the start of the "0 Tolerance" Policy Cang hinted at all those months ago.

    With the threat of death looming over anyone who decided to oppose the marines one would think this would be enough to keep peace in the world. That notion was utterly wrong, pirates as free and bold as ever before still filled the sea. The death of comrades did not halt the revolution either, in fact it drove it to bolder and more open moves in the world. Major kingdoms were overthrown by Yonko crews, while pivotal islands in the grand line were intruded upon by revolutionary army forces. The wicked were finally here, and the spread of malice was slowly rolling in.

    [Malice] The Great Pirate Era

    At the forefront of this new wave of malice was the proclaimed "Malice Generation". This generation were the rookies from across factions which were just entering this turmoil of a world. A formal introduction to these new comers came in the form of intrapersonal crew conflict. The two biggest names of the Malice Generation, The Seven Deadly Sins and the Ten Commandments pirate crews. Rival crews which were headed towards war finally reached a breaking point. The Tournament of Champions hosted by Iho Rieki better known as the banker and funded by the Sloth Sin Droy. The scene was set, an underworld oriented tournament which brought together the best and brightest of all competitors from around the four blues to battle to see who was the best brawler on the rise. From the gate the tournament forecasted a collision between the 100 million beli pirate Xavier Munsa and the rising revolutionary star Spike Spiegel. The two cut through their meek opponents like melted butter before finally clashing with each other in the final round. The tournament ultimately concluded with Spike the victor and Xavier the runner up. The rewards were two valuable fruits of the devil as well as a vivre card linked to another sin for Spike. The tournament was over, but the malice was not.

    An unlikely spectator waited. He waited so long that he actually vanished from sight. He was in every sense of the word a ghost. A dark skin man, a self proclaimed GOD. The God amongst men sat idly waiting for the tournament to finish. Droy's premise for hosting this tournament was to flex his reach and might to all opposition by showcasing his wealth and notoriety. This was Droy's error and this error would ultimately cost the Sloth his life. Akachi the Commandment of False Gods released his own malice upon the people of Viking Fortress as well Droy. With the world watching Akachi took the life of the sin, thus sending the Great Pirate Era to the forefront of world news.

    The leaders of the world government called out to marines all over to start broadening their own reach and cracking down on all acts opposing the peace. Despite the increased efforts of the marines, the revolutionaries still had a prominent presence around the world and were gaining the favor of the people. While pirates still reeked havoc on the peace in their efforts to be known as the greatest pirate. The death of the Sloth Sin was more than enough to drive the Sins and Commandments into an all out war. The sin of Wrath fittingly started the battles by attacking and ultimately killing the Commandment of false witness. The battle was quick and destructive, Badonka Donk Island was the recipient of the fallout. Villages were destroyed and the economy crippled once more, driving the people into a second civil war. Following his comrade the sin of Greed was up next and the island of Pucci would suffer a similar fate. This battle was a long drawn out battle with many civilian casualties. Of all the destruction the destruction of the Sea track connected to Water 7 was the most crippling. With no access to or escape from the island. The people of Pucci were stranded. The long battle ended with another victory for the Sins as the Commandment of Namesake perished and another embarrassment for the marine faction which was no where to be found. The Malice generation was making a fool of the marine faction and world government. Internal conflict was brewing amidst the chaos. Some big name marines were losing faith in their "superiors" and started forming cliques and groups of marines who were loyal to themselves and their own cause. Radical marines with different goals began to act on their own accord in the shadows.

    Another battle was to come, but the marines were ahead of the curve. The Commandment of Sabbath had a plan to ambush and kill Greed, but these new cliques of marines who had tips from the underworld acted first killing the commandment before he could cause any further damage. With the seas in turmoil, the scales of power were tipping back in forth much like the sea rolls in and out from the shore. Would the power stay tipped towards the world government or would it balance out? These were question bound to be answered within the coming months...
