"The difference between gods and daemons depends largely upon where one stands at the time." - Lorgar Aurelian, Bearer of the Word, primarch of the XVII legion

The words and deeds of traitors are little more than deceit and betrayal made manifest; but only the most blind can deny a measure of truth to some of these things. None more so than the warriors of the Relictors space marine chapter, condemned in the eyes of the Imperium for daring to fight chaos with that which gives them their strength: chaos itself. Hounded by former allies and with few places to turn to for safe haven, the chapter is dying a slow death. Scattered, shattered beyond hope of recovery, some will eventually give in and become the very thing they have sworn to fight. However for some, the crusade to fight the great enemy transcends damnation, especially if there is a chance for redemption.

Legends speak of a grimoire, lost during the dark days when gods walked amongst mortals and the galaxy was ripped apart by civil war. It was discovered thousands of years later, when Horus tore the Emperor's Imperium asunder, by Lorgar of the Word Bearers. Within the grimoire, it is said that Lorgar learned of ways to bind the denizens of the warp to physical objects or exhibit control on their kind. It is said that during the great Scouring following the defeat of Horus, this grimoire was lost to Lorgar.

Over the course of the following millenia, sightings and whispers of such a thing have come and gone. If there is anything that can offer the Relictors salvation from the Imperium, this may be it. Or at the very least, that is what drives codicier Laendro Tatecen.

Hello everybody and welcome to Strength of Will, an RP focusing on a small band of Relictors. It has been three years since the chapter was declared Excommunicate Traitoris, and since that time the remnants have splintered and spread out across Segmentum Obscurus. Aboard the strike cruiser Lux Inifnitum, codicier Laendro Tatecen and the shattered remnants of the Relictors fifth company cross the void in search of the Grimoire of Lorgar, a means to control and bind daemons to weapons and objects so that they can be used to fight their own kind. As members of the remnants under Tatecen's command, it falls to you to find this grimoire, recover it, and give the Imperium a great weapon in the fight against the great enemy.

-No godmodding
-As GM my decision is final, please respect that
-Eight sentences minimum per action thread post
-If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. You never know, I might let you do things a bit out of the updates boundaries
-Stuff happens, thats the way life works; if you aren't going to be able to post for a while or are losing interest than let me know. The worst thing you can do is say nothing and vanish, which is the easiest way to get on my bad side.
-Post once, post a dozen times, its completely up to you as long as you can do the minimum per post

Character Sheet:
-Before you make your character, understand that this is not first come first serve, and I will ignore characters from players trying to 'reserve' a spot. If your interested thats one thing, but don't feel put down if someone gets a character up before you that you wanted because I may feel your character fits better.


Age: (There are two distinct squads you can choose from, one is a tactical squad and the other an assault squad. Members of the tactical squad are to be between 65 and 80 while members of the assault squad can be between 50 and 70. Ages within each squad will be similar, with a four year difference above or below. This range is determined when the first member of the assault and tactical squads are accepted, but as a guideline of what you'd be looking at: if the first accepted member of the tactical squad is 72 then the rest of the squad can be any age between 68 and 76. If the first assault marine is 53, then the rest can be between 50 and 57 since the minimum is 50.)

Appearance: (What do you look like? What about your armour? The chapters fall from grace and splintering occurred three years before now, and all aboard the Lux fight in the name of mankind and for the Emperor.)

Personality: (Space marines may know no fear, but that does not hinder them from having quirks and such.)

Background: (The Relictors called the deathworld of Neutra their home, a place with no information about it and as such lets go with it being a world with hundreds of forest choked temperate islands.)

Squad: (There are two playable squads available, a tactical and an assault squad. Which are you a part of?)

Equipment: (All characters have frag grenades, krak grenades, and spare ammo of indeterminate amounts; one member of the tactical squad may have an auspex.)

Weapons: (All characters have a combat blade and bolt pistol, additional weapons are determined by squad and can be found below; one member of the assault squad may have an additional bolt pistol.)

-Members of the tactical squad have a bolter in addition to other weapons. One character may take on the role of specialist.

-Members of the assault squad have a chainsword or chain-axe in addition to other weapons. One character may take on the role of specialist.

Specialists will have access to a number of additional, and occasionally situational, choices of weapons throughout the RP. These will include ranged heavy and special weapons such as heavy bolters, missile launchers, meltaguns, or flamers, in addition to heavy or special close combat weapons such as eviscerators, power weapons, meltabombs, or lightning claws. (Initially there will be no need to list a specialist weapon, just list the normal ones as per the squad, I'll either be giving you the option of what you can have or it will be pre-chosen.)

limited choices of what they can wield throughout the course of this RP. These may range from a heavy bolter, missile launcher, meltagun, flamer, eviscerator, or even a storm bolter.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Name: Danrek Seccarin

Age: 72

Appearance: Danrek stands a little under seven feet tall, smaller than the average astartes and noticeably slimmer especially when unarmoured. His hair is dark brown, and has grown slightly past its usual short cut. His eyes are in a semi permanent squint, brown and the left bears a small cut just beneath. His skin is pale and devoid of features other than the odd scars.

Danrek's armour has kept the grey and black of the chapter, although the squad marking has begun to fade without regular maintenance. The left pauldron and greave have begun to show more wear than the right due to his typical stancewhen aiming placing his left side towards the enemy, as well as his habit of leading with his left in combat.

Personality: Danrek's faith in the Imperial creed has waned in the past years, the thought of how many others had possibly been unjustly declared traitor giving rise to doubts he has yet to come to terms with. Although he realizes that the majority of Imperial citizens would despise him and see him as a hated foe, he still remembers his old oaths and still places the defense of mankind highest on his list of priorities.

Cynical and reserved, Danrek's outlook is always to the present in battle, but otherwise has increasingly begun to wander between the past and the future. Thoughts of what might have been and what could still be haunt him when he has time to reflect. Despite this, he has not completely lost his sense of humour although jokes do not come as easily or often as they used to.

Background: Danrek was the youngest boy of four siblings, two brothers and a sister of whom all were pressed into militia training as soon as they were old enough. This military upbringing left them all with a strong sense of martial pride and a competitive nature, resulting in all three brothers becoming candidates for space marine neophytes by the time they had reached ten. Over three years, Danrek watched both his brothers try and fail to meet the needs to join the battle brothers of the astartes. When his turn came, Danrek was more determined than ever to prove that his lineage was capable of joining the astartes' ranks, and it was this determination that saw him succeed where his brothers failed. Since then he has all but lost contact with his old family, the needs of the chapters supplanting his older ties.

Danrek's early time as an astartes saw him in the reserve Devastator company, where he specialized in wielding the heavy bolter. His successes in early campaigns resulted in his advancement to the fifth company as a Devastator for a further ten years before he became a part of a frontline Tactical Squad. Though he has rarely wielded a heavy weapon since then, Danrek remained a steady and reliable battle brother with little loss of efficiency on the battlefield.

When the chapter was declared traitor, Danrek's conviction and faith suffered heavily. In the fighting that followed, Danrek was forced to take the lives of numerous imperial soldiers, men and women who fought with the same devotion that had defined much of his own life. Only the words of the older members of the chapter spurred him to continue, the hope of redemption if only they could prove themselves becoming the goal of the chapter. And if not, to die in the service of protecting mankind even if humanity no longer cared for them.

Squad: Tactical (I will say candidate for specialist unless someone better suited volunteers.)

Equipment: Aquila Pattern Power Armour, Frag grenades, krak grenades.

Weapons: Combat Blade, Bolt Pistol, Boltgun.

Nonsense is our Salvation
