Default Frozen Secrets (Recruitment)

The planet Geminar, a frozen wasteland that makes even Valhalla seem like a pleasant vacation spot full of warm days and pleasant nights. Geminar is littered with frozen ravines, treacherous canyons, and desolate planes; It is a place where temperatures on avarage hover around - 40C on a warm day and drop to a terrifying -130C on a cold one. Geminar would be a barren lifeless prickly ball of ice in the large scale of things if not for three reasons, The first being there is actually life on the planet, A indigenous species called skates, ray like creatures that swim through the snow and hunt in packs of at least 20 to 30, Second is it's incredibly rich in resources. some of the rarest minerals of all of the imperium are found in the icy depths of the planet, and third, ships have a bad habit of smacking into the planet.

Geminar is home to a relatively small community of miners who venture out into the dangerous wastes of this unforgiving world to recover resources for the imperium. the miners have made homes out of the wrecks of ships that have crashed into their planet, one would think there wouldn't be many, but Geminar is like a graveyard if you dig deep enough.

200 years ago at the end of the first tyranic war, Geminar got some uninvited guests that went unnoticed. the Strike cruiser Ignis had chased down a offshoot of Behemoth shortly after the Battle for Macragge. For 200 years Ignis was thought lost to the warp, and for 200 years Geminar has held onto it's secrets... until now that is.

three days ago a survey team made an unfortunate discovery and unintentonaly dug up a Mycetic spore. In a flight of panic upon learning this, the planatary govoner sent out a distress call, claiming tyranids had landed on Geminar. Promptly the Ultra marines responded, but they got no answer back from Geminar. Without hesitation Astartes set out for Geminar which was thankful only 2 weeks away... the only question was could the people of the planet last that long?

================================================== ===========================
1: Don't God mod
2: Please respect your fellow players.
3: Each post should be a bare minimum of 2 paragraphs.
4: Updates will be once a week.
5: Use the character sheet I provide.
6: If you cant post let me know, we can work something out. if you dont post, your character gets injured... if you get injured too much, you die.
7: Post "Miner Reporting" in blue or red at the end of your character card somewhere to let me know you have read all of the rules and agree to follow them.

================================================== ===========================
First off you are members of the planet's PDF. you are not formal imperial guardsmen, you are not space marines or tyranids or orks or impeccable veterans of countless battles. Geminar has seen a total of two conflicts in it's lifetime, both of which are well outside your lifetimes. The first was against traitors who rose up against the govoner.... they were promptly squashed. and the second was against orks, it is not known if they were squashed but it is assumed.

Username: Cleanser
Name: Boris Kavrov
Age:30
Sex: Male

Appearance: Boris is of average height and has a strong, centered build. His face is weathered and tired looking, in direct contrast with his sharp eyes, which are constantly on alert. The icy blue color of his eyes draw even more attention to them. He has shaggy, unkempt red hair along with an equally scruffy beard, which is often coated with snow and other small bits of debris. He has incredible stamina, allowing him to traverse through unforgiving environments for long periods of time.

Personality: Boris is a serious man, always focused on the job, no matter what it is. He doesn't mess around much, preferring to get things done as soon as possible. He has a sharp mind, however, and has an eye for detail, making him an ideal scout. Despite his humorless demeanor, he cares very much about his wife, willing to do anything to keep her safe.

Biography: Boris is the son of a pair of miners, though he never met his mother, not even knowing her name. His father taught him how to survive in Geminar's hostile and unforgiving environment, as well as how to avoid the skates. When out on a mining job, his father was involved in an accident that ended with him being tragically killed, along with 42 other miners.

With no one there to take care of him, Boris became a miner at 16, jumping from one mining group to another. Boris eventually met his future wife, a woman named Natalia, when she saved his life when his equipment failed. After spending six years working with her, the two married. Boris soon realized that he couldn't provide for them both with mining alone, so he volunteered to join the PDF.

The job wasn't as dangerous as he thought, the threat of a xeno attack being incredibly thin, though the occasional skate attacks were troublesome. When the survey team discovered the cyst, Boris didn't know what to think. A part of him thought about going home to his wife and taking her far away from Geminar, but he realized that he needed to keep his head cool and try his best to hold out as long as he could. There was going to be help soon, he was sure of it.

Gear:
1 cold weather shotgun.
1 las pistol
1 Cold weather uniform
1 Ice pick
1 promethium torch
1 power spade
1 vox caster
1 Arctic Construction Sentinel

Name: Oliver DÝvig
Age: 22
Sex: Male

Appearance: Oliver is a youth, recently joined the planetary PDF after his training as a recruit.Has short black hair and eyes. He is of average height, normal weight, slender built. His hands have not yet trained in the planet's mines and harsh environment, yet he is an avid climber, surefooted and unlikely to lose his foothold on a snowy cliff as cold as it may get.

Personality&Biography: Not having one yet, he was raised *violin sound* with relatives of his where no one paid him any close attention, since his parents had died under unknown conditions he never learned. His relatives never shed some light to his worries, telling him that some things are best kept in the dark and he wasn't stranger to quarrels with other children, when they tried to annoy him by mocking his parents, even to the point of calling them heretics. Aside such cases, he is neither quarrelsome nor sloth, he has a sense of respect and doesn't like being picked on although he can't do much else than succumb in probable jests from his officers obediently since he knows that it is a small price to pay for belonging somewhere.

Outside of his work, is as cheerful as a relatively lonely youth can get, not minding company but not actively seeking it either. Life was harsh on him due to being raised up with no parents and when he saw he was eligible for recruitment on the PDF force he immediately signed up. Being the youngest didn't prevent him from passing the tasks ahead using determination and in 3 year's training he was ready to go on patrols. The first thing he learned was surviving in the cold, using properly his equipment and of course aiming and arming his weaponry. He soon found out it was a matter of life and death out there having seen an officer being devoured alive by skates and since he isn't the one to panic in the sight of blood, be it his own or not.

He learned a fair lot in the mines and he saw his fellow officers trying to fend of skates from afar although he was never allowed to hold weaponry during his training. Having passed the casual drills of the PDF he was the one who climbed in a strange looking spire from where the signals came and made the realization that there was the xeno object deep in the local vein. Unsure as how to behave, all he could do was hold his arms tight and do as his older officers would.

Gear:
Cold weather las rifle
Las pistol
Cold weather uniform with the battery pack worn over his right shoulder.
Ice pick
Promethium torch
Chain Knife heirloom, the only object he has from his parents, he learned that it belonged to his father and it was the first weapon he trained himself with.
Power Spade
Vox caster, although he has yet to learn how to properly use it.

Name Anthony Lecutis

Age: 36

Sex: Male

Appearance: Anthony is a well built man standing at an easy 6’1” in height and weighing 190lbs; most of which is hardened muscle. His face has been beaten by years in the frozen wastelands and decades of pollution in the scrap yards his people call home. He is gruff and rough with a Mohawk haircut leading into a simple Chin Strap that ends a inch from his mouth.

Personality: Anthony is a simple man, but one who views the world tactically. Every move he makes is a calculated risk, and he plays the game of life well. He makes friends when he can, and disregards those he considers to be morally below him. He keeps his inner thoughts and history closed, making sure that no one outside his immediate family knows much about him or his past.

Biography: Not much is known of the life of Lecutis before he married his wife Amy. He was a ruffian know to cause fights at the local bar and do the hard jobs that few every wanted to do. Thus from an early age he had grown up in a hostile, and deadly environment of both the planet, and the people he lived with. He made his living as a Sonar Mapper, using his skills with sound to locate rare earth elements and survey sites for Off-Worlders interested in plundering loot from shipwrecks found across the land. One day he was out working on a tank the local community used to store fuel in when the tank exploded; propelling him hundreds of feet across the snow and into a wall of solid ice.

When he awoke he was being cared for by a young girl in the hut of a local Village Elder. Lecutis could not recall anything before the accident and to this day does not remember much of his past except that girl. Eventually he decided to marry the girl, whose name was Amy, and settled down to have a boy and a girl. He volunteered for the PDF to help feed his family and eventually won a better posting closer to the more populated settlements. Now it seems that his planet might have been invaded by the very spawn that threaten the existence of human kind; and thus Lecutis has stepped up to protect his family and indeed his world.

Gear:
1 Cold weather Las rifle
1 Las pistol
1 Cold weather uniform (consists of bulky trousers and heavy coat, both with large amounts of insulation and rudimentary heating powered by a battery worn on your back. where on your back is up to you. also consists of glacier grade glasses, insulated heating scarf, and a Ushanka. 3 high visibility hazard lights are on each of your shoulders so your comrades can pick you out in a blizzard. )
1 Ice pick
1 Promethium Torch (hand held, fits in your hand like a large lighter)
1 Power Spade (primarily used for digging a hole in a hurry to escape a blizzard).
1 Vox Caster
1 Sonar Mapper

you guys are good to go save for kutu. the first conflict was ages ago, round 300 to 400 years. second one maybe 100 years ago. unless his parents were eldar, dont think it would be possible for his dad to have died in the first conflict.

Never Give Up, Never Surrender. for it is better to burn out than fade away.
