Oleon: Sign-up and Discussion, Era II

I'm spooling back up to start building again, and was wondering what I need to do to go about deep-sixing my old character and starting fresh (still in Oleon, of course!).  It's been about two years since I did anything BoBs related and want to have a clean break between the old and new.

Welcome back! I'd recommend just posting a new character introduction then starting again. If you like you can post a story explaining what happened to your original sigfig or just leave them quietly in the background for future use... up to you. For EGS purposes your account is linked to your EB username and not your character name, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Sounds good, would it be possible to donate the assets aquired under my old character to Oleon?  I would like to start completely fresh if possible (0 DB/0 PIP, no propeties etc).  As far as I know there should be no debts.

I think we can handle this. @Legostone, can you help? :)

Emile Rousseau — Captain — Preservation and Acquisition of Cultural and Religious Entities

Background 

Emile Rousseau was temporarily staying in a nearly 25 year-old, non-contiguos Oleon outpost. It was his quiet retreat after a near 10 year military service as apart of the royal infantry. He had tried staying in Lavalette but found it too distracting for his writing. Emile had always shown a penchant for articulating the ways in which cultural artifacts should be protected and learned from. Emile had been long developing a dissertation (without a formal education) while serving as a rank-and-file in the royal infantry. While his more scholarly tendencies were lost on many fellow privates, astute NCO's with greater means would help Emile develop ideas and understanding through supplying him with subsequent literature. It was this slow process that landed Emile at the finalization of his collected essays which he had only, finally, got published in the spring in Oleon proper, with Emile all the way ensconced in his ruins. 

Emile felt slightly anxious about his published work. It was not that Emile was worried about reception or glory. It was that he only needed to know it was circulating, he trusted the intellectual elites and clergy members would be at the very least pushed to change the investment of time and money into preserving cultural entities. Emile hoped his essays would have such an effect, his writing was extensive and the fruit of 12 years of hard work, 10 of which during several military campaigns. 

 

Presently 

It was during another sleepy afternoon that found Emile cooking his dinner on the shore of the island ruins. It had been several months now since his essays had circulated the upper echelon of Oleon, which Emile was not aware of yet.

All had been quiet on the small island. That was until — halfway through cooking his halibut, Emile spotted a correspondence dispatch, undoubtedly from a larger ship beyond sight, or perhaps a neighboring settlement. Emile waited for them to come ashore. No doubt it was news of his essays, Emile thought. But then... why was it a military correspondence?

The boat came ashore and the lead correspondence officer approached Emile to confirm his identity. Upon confirmation he was handed a letter with a stamp that was clearly Oleon high council but he had never seen anything like it before, not unusual for an lower-class infantry veteran.

Very, good Mr. Rousseau! This is for you then. We will dock here overnight in-case travel is necessitated. 

Emile was skeptical, but still excited to see if the letter would make reference to his writings being a success. 

Thank you. You and your men can rally around the fire a meal is on, please do not wait for me. Emile was eager to read in private. 

Emile opened the letter carefully but quickly nonetheless. 

In short, the letter read:

 

Mr. Rousseau,

Your essays grasped the interest of some of the more important nobility Oleon has to offer. So much so, that they saw fit to circulate your writings among certain members of the High Council. The state has seen fit to request your servitude once again and re-conscript you. You will not be returning to the infantry of course but you are to enter as a Captain of a new company as per your needs. You are to rendezvous back in Oleon to form a small group of advisors that will head-up the sort of initiative we feel you have made so apparently necessary to procure and protect the interests of Oleon in the realm of art, history and religion. More details that deal in more direct terms can be expected once you arrive in Oleon, some details can only be spoken for security sake. 

Thank You.

 

Emile took a moment to collect his thoughts

My papers have a captive audience. I must now take command of the very things I have written of.

@Django Fett Really interesting story! Emile's adventurers sound like they have some exciting times ahead. If Abbé François can offer any help, he will happily do so.

Thank you Ross! Yes I have a feeling they will intersect! Hopefully without any stake burnings ;) Yes possibly we could crossover at some point!

@Django Fett I like the character and his profession sounds interesting. I also like the MOC. It’s small yet effective at showing what is going on. Welcome to Oleon.
