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
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.
