More then a year passed since the last theft associated with Phantom happened. Despite a few similar cases, the robbers have either been caught or it's been declared a copycat robbery. Many are still suspicious of Aliester Crown as the thefts stopped at the same time as his trial happened, however he had be declared not guilty and further investigation did not make a clear connection between him and the legendary thief. But now something seems to be happening on the streets of London. A mysterious faceless burglar who gladly proclaims that he is Phantom to the whole world has organized a guild of thieves and is taking over both the crime underworld and the city in one single swoop. This split the community between either suspecting Aliester more or less, however that in itself is unimportant on the grand scheme of things. The new Phantom proudly declared that he had a change of heart and that his skills are to serve the people.
Not only expensive gems, paintings, statues and other art is being stolen, but money, gold and general good are all disappearing at a record speed all over Europe and the range is still expanding. The fact that the thief, dubbed Neo Phantom by now distributes the goods and money among those in need and those who are poor has gained him many supporters who now hail him as a hero.
His servants however do not turn away from violence and both injuries and deaths have been reported during the robberies. The authorities are helpless against the band of thives and in the end they only have one hope.
The hope that someone will stop Phantom.
So, open RP, pretty much anyone willing can join.
The RP will be part investigation and part combat with seven different locations and thief guild captains and of course Neo Phantom himself at the end.
