Red Flower Society


Secret societies have long existed for a number of social and political reasons. The Red Flower Society dates back to the time around the burning of the Great Temples of the South when the Churians invades the Great Civilized Land from the North. The organization teaches the finest martial arts and skills of subterfuge to its members

The Red Flower Society is a secret society that dates back to the time around the burning of the Great Temples of the South when the Churians invades the Great Civilized Land from the North, conquering the ruling dynasty and setting up their own. The Rebels consisting of ex-military and warrior monks of the Great Temples were forced to take refuse in local monasteries. There they formed the Red Flower Society. It is a secret society where members could identify themselves by wearing a red flower or by quoting random poetry that includes a red flower in it.

Secret societies have long existed for a number of social and political reasons. The Red Flower Society members pooled their wealth of knowledge and years of experience in hand to hand combat for the purpose of creating and teaching their revolutionary troops. Their goals was to be undetected by their enemies, moving as common folk. They would then strike and melt away into the crowd.

The Rebels created the first fighting system with a true understanding of tactics and timing. The Society members had two objectives 1) to create a system that could be learned quickly; secondly, it had to be extremely effective against the fighting systems known to the Churians.

The Red Flower Society specializes in Strategy and Tactic skills, analyzing styles, a variety of poses designed to take on specific options, and skills options that increase striking speed. It is all about the timing of the gates opening and closing, a feel for time/ space/ energy. To those not prepared to deal with this style, it is lethal in the extreme.

The society has been somewhat successful in opposing the Chorion dynasty and its huge military for the last hundred years. They will someday throw down the oppressors.

Too many Martial Arts movies for you. Isn't this the origin story from Wing Chung Style (and a few other Chinese Martial Arts?). Still is is kind of cool.

You're both right. The red flower society began with the Shaolin & was closely associated with Wing Chun. I will explain how, as well as reveal my discovery of their lost ancient base established by Koxinga in the very near future.

What he said! Not much by today's standards, but it is an okay summary. (Also added the Martial Arts freetext.)

Brings nothing new to the table. As everyone said, it has been done and has been done better.

I am new to the site. While I agree with all the comments regarding this post's lack of originality and the lack of effort that went into the development of the idea I just want to point out how much this guy posts. He can't post as much as he does and have everything be a game tested labor of love. So I would suggest cutting the guys some slack. Not every idea can be a home run and since the web is endless what better place to toss out all your little throw away ideas.

That we know and MoonHunter is well respected for the massive amount of contributions he made. If you try to consider each post on its own merits, some will turn out to be less than perfect and will be commented on appropriately. Does it mean anything in the long term? Not really. If you stick around for long enough and post some amount of submissions, some will be better and some worse (and often will they be accepted differently than you would think, go figure). To some degree, we try to cut some slack to new members, familiar faces tend to be fair game. :)

So, do not worry about criticism. We try to be nice, when we bark we don't bite (but watch out for the rabid penguins). Don't be afraid of adding your ideas - we always appreciate if someone makes a submission grow towards perfection.

Oh, and: yes, this is the place to toss out all your little throw away ideas. But not everything needs to be a submission, where a certain degree of completeness is expected. If it's small and stand-alone, you could make it an Idea Seed. You could work on it in the forums and see what others have to say about it. If you find a suitable scroll, you can post it as a scroll entry (or you could even create a new scroll with several smaller ideas that fit together). And you could make it a Stub and link it to something else.

There are many ways to deliver an idea - choose the one you find suitable.

An interesting idea, a start of something.

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
