Default Trials of the 15th: Recruitment

Story:

They’re all gone, thought the Commissar. Gunfire and smoke sounded all around him. He should have been out there, fighting with his men on the front lines, but his orders were to stay behind and wait. Wait for the fighting to end. It’s been five days that he hid in that storeroom. Five days. How many survived, he wonders.

Carefully, he exits the storeroom and looks around. The area appears to be clear for the time being. He hears the footsteps of cultists patrolling outside, as though sensing Imperial blood in their vicinity. His mission is to rally the survivors and escape, any way that he can. The base was not prepared for such a brutal assault, and while the main traitor marine army has left, their patrols still remain.

From the dark corners of the room emerge other figures. Men who, like him, have been hiding. These men are Veterans of the Cadian 15th Scout Regiment. The best in the business.

Trials of the 15th


Mechanics:

This RP will involve sneaking and stealth – open combat is not suggested, unless in the pre-determined “trial” battles. Players will act depending on how the previous player posted. For example, if one player ended his part by posting “But it was too late – the guard spotted him...” The next player to post can intervene and solve the problem, for example by posting “He fell to the floor with a thud, smoke rising from the barrel of ____’s gun”. If a guard spots a player, he will raise an alert first. This will trigger reinforcements to enter the room en-masse, greatly increasing the difficulty of the situation.

The RP will work on a trust system as well, such as trust that the player will not go beyond his boundaries, mowing down hordes of enemies with only a pistol, or killing a chaos space marine with a knife. Players do not, however, have to save each other from bad decisions. Taking from the previous example, if a guard raises an alert, another player does not have to fix the situation – this can even make the RP more lively.

Special weapons will be obtained at points in the RP. They have limited ammunition, and so can only be used a specific amount of times. These will be awarded to whoever responds within the first three days after an update is posted.

Rules:
- No godmodding
- No breaking your boundaries
- No out of context arguing
- Updates will be posted a maximum of 2 weeks after the current
- Late players can join, but our numbers cannot exceed 6 active members
- I am very adaptable to requests
- Multiple posts are not permitted

Very interesting. I might join up, though I've got a few rps to make posts for first

I'd be interested in joining if you'd have me? I'll cook something up.

Here we Go:
San “Shadow” Yolfan

Standing at 5 foot 9 inches, San is of average height and build for a man. His cheekbones and jaw are pronounced, though his face is gaunt. His eyes are of particular interest to an on-looker; his right eye is slightly clouded, while the other is a very vivid blue. His stare is intense, you can see that this is a man who has seen things that no man should. His hair is light brown and kept very short. He is clean shaven, exposing an ancient looking scar across his left cheek, the origins of which have never been revealed. His right hand appears to be gnarled and weathered compared to the other, as if it has aged twice as fast as his left.
On a number of occasions he has appeared to have come out of nowhere, blending into the shadows with such skill that it can be several minutes before someone even notices he is there. This ability is enhanced by the fact he appears to make no noise when he moves, as if he was a ghost hovering above the ground. This is origin of his nickname, “Shadow”.

“Insane? You dare to claim that we are insane? I find this very amusing. You see, there is no such thing as sanity. Why? Because the nature of sanity depends on the context the term is used. A man living in squalor may call the rich man insane for wasting food, while the rich man in return may call the poor insane for living off his waste. You slaughter thousands and squander the resources of planets on foolish incursions to please a corpse and his corrupted followers. And you have the nerve to call me insane? Oh poor misguided individual, pray to whatever deity you serve and hope he is merciful, for those who find themselves trapped in the spiders web have little else they can do”

Lord Nerthro of the ‘Heralds of Absurdity’ to what remained of an Imperial scouting party

Hi, I'm kinda new here but I'm interested to join if possible. (Sidenote: not a mothertongue English user, please be patient )

Name: Sam "Tincan" Knoffer
Physical description: Sam stands at 6', weights 200lbs. He's of robust build with large shoulders, developed in his youth as a scrumball player. His nose permanently flattened by the injuries sustained over the years, he lost his jaw in a skirmish against Chaos troopers; it has been replaced by a squared metal prothesis, thus earning him his nickname. He has long, dark brown hair and brown eyes with some traces of green, barely visible. Shrapnel shred part of what remains of his right cheek, leaving several small marks underneath his eye.

Excellent stuff! è buono ha un partecipante italiano in il mio RP. (I learned a bit of Italian, but not much).

Also, we are approaching the necessary 4 players to begin the RP.
