TRP is a post-Great War AU RWBY RP set in Mistral City and Haven Academy with no canons, no rank claims, no maidens, and no god interference. We offer a progression system and site-wide events that change the setting based on player actions.

I had to suppress the temptation of smiling like a hyena when I saw Ruqa’s surprised expression at my little proposal. Making her nervous made the whole exchange worth it in and out of itself.
Shrugging off, I accepted her desire to move from that topic entirely. It seemed like Reyes wasn’t quite ready to put her money where her mouth was. So I wouldn’t push her for it any further. At least for the moment.
Besides that, Ruqa seemed to be on board with my idea of mutual assistance. Which was good since I wasn’t nearly as strong or capable enough to do every kind of job on my own. Every now and then, I would be pitched against something way above my level, and I would undoubtedly call upon the four-armed huntress to come to my aid.
Even if I hadn’t interacted at large with Ruqa in this past year, she seemed like a competent person to me. And one person alone wouldn’t be enough to pull Mistral out of its hole, after all... Not even a team would be enough at this point.
There was no Cressyda Fox or king of Vale to come and save us now. We had to figure this out by ourselves. And we could only do that by pooling resources and start seriously working together.
-My back will be well guarded then- I said with a toothy smile and a mock salute.
Whatever the case, it seemed like we had squeezed everything we could from this little encounter, so the four-armed girl seemed ready to leave, and honestly, so was I. -Yeah... We should do this again sometime. I’ll keep tabs on the score then, Reyes- I said with a wink.
-...See you around-
And with a final goodbye, I departed towards my room. I needed to start preparing. I had my first escort mission in a week, and I couldn’t be less prepared for it!
Oh, well... I guess no one is born knowing everything. As long as I make a conscious effort to learn as I go. I believed things would turn out ok... And if things looked like they could go south, well, I had the best back-backer in all of Mistral by her own admission to call for help.
