Sergeant Korvis, Shaan, Korvus and Reishi engaged the traitor marines. One had already been cut down by Korvus, the body of the Power-Armoured Red Corsair now was split in two, and they were an enemy down. Shaan and Reishi had been yet to kill a Red Corsair, leaving the enemy sharing even numbers with them, although the Astartes' morale had been boosted by the death of one of their marines, even if it had been Korvus who had slain it. Striking from the shadows where possible, the Raven Guard utilized their training instructions against the Raptors, who were engaging their loyalist counterparts in battles both in the sky and on the jungle floor. Sergeant Korvis took the jump pack on another Red Corsair by striking from behind, but before he could deliver the killing blow, one of his red-armoured allies attacked the Sergeant from the side, causing him to break away, fall back to the shadows - where he could strike again at the oncoming attackers.
Cleite: You watch the Ultramarines, lead by Kalan, follow the Raven Guard past you as though they move to aid Tev, still not speaking. It appears they were genuine after all when you see them engage the Red Corsairs in direct combat, but this still raises doubts. Why are they here, even if they are loyal? What is their objective and why are they going outside of the Codex Doctrines? And remember what the Sorcerer did to the Chimeras - could the Ultramarines only be a temporary ally?
That was when the Ultramarines entered the fray, lead by Librarian Kalan, and it proved that the injured squad was true to their word, giving the loyalists fresh hope and surprising the Red Corsairs. Although they did not fight with the stealth tactics that the Raven Guard did, the Ultramarines were still a formidable force even with the Red Corsairs still having the advantage of the air, although Korvis' Astartes were countering that.
All: With your Ultramarine allies, you now find yourselves outnumbering the Red Corsairs. Your side has thirteen marines - including a Librarian, someone who is clearly Ultramarine Sergeant judging by his heraldry, and a Raven Guard Sergeant, whilst the Red Corsair Raptors now only have four astartes, and one of them has a crippled jetpack. Your goal is simple - defeat them, using the Raven Guard way. Remember, you are fighting with a fellow first founding Chapter, the Ultramarines. Do you attempt to show off your fighting skills and demonstrate your 'superiority' over the sons of Guilliman, or do you see the advantage of working with them.
GM's Notes: You will have to work together to ensure that the same Red Corsair does not get killed twice by different people. There are four. One Ultramarine can be killed, although again, you may have to decide who gets to first write about the update for that one. (Ideally, the first person who posts - so the others can highlight their reactions).
If anybody has any issues with this post, like there was a few with the previous one, contact me as soon as possible either by PM or in the recruitment thread and hopefully I can sort it out. I'll admit that I'm not the best Roleplay out there, despite running two/three in the past, they all failed and I'm trying to get a complete one this time. I should have this finished by the end of the year at the latest if all goes to plan, but hopefully I should be able to finish it sooner.
Deadline will be Saturday 11.
