Kulth, the Ork ridden War-World of the Calixis Sector, has been locked in a power struggle between the Orks and the Imperium for the past eighty-three years, and the Vostroyan Firstborn 55th Regiment has been stationed there all the while, fighting the greenskins in the name of the Emperor.
The Orks have, seemingly randomly, have orchestrated an extremely aggressive push into Imperium territory. Needing backup, the Vostroyan Firstborn 241st Regiment, known for it's Ad-Hoc composition and organization, as well as the "Rough and Tumble" nature of some of it's recruits as opposed to the rest of the Firstborn, has been sent to reinforce the lines that the 55th has been holding.
Player Roles/Information to keep in mind
The players will be roleplaying a 5-man Veteran Sqaud from the Vostroyan Firstborn 241st Regiment. Your objectives will be made clear to you, but may change or diverge from the original path of the story depending on player choices, in order to keep the story flexible and make sure the players exert a realistic level of control over their plight.
The squad will be composed of 5 players, each filling one role within the squad. These roles will be decided upon on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The roles are as follows:
(Aside from wargear listed, all soldiers will be armed with (unless otherwise stated): x1 Laspistol, x2 Krak Grenades, x2 Frag Grenades, x1 Entrenching Tool, x1 Bayonet/Combat Knife, x1 Medi-Kit)
(*: An asterisk denotes that you must choose one of multiple gear choices. **: A double asterisk denotes this character does not carry the standard Laspistol.)
