Apologies for the late entry, I hope it's not too late.

Name: Gallan Robickai

Age: 30

Group: PDF

Appearance: Gallan is a tall, well built man with a speckling of small burn scars across his cheeks and the back of hands, a legacy of years spent as a welder in the coastal ship yards of Laviax, a port city on the southern continent of Prolial. His brown hair, receding at the front, is shaved tight to his scalp, with a smattering of grey starting to creep in at the temples. He has a tattoo of his Artificers Guild crest on the side of his neck, and clan tattoos covering his arms from wrists to shoulders.

He is a fairly easy going individual, preferring to get along with people than not, but finds it hard to deal with those he perceives as fools. On the whole he is fairly level headed, but has been known to let his temper get the better of him when he feels that others are making stupid decisions that directly affect him. This has got him in trouble more than once, in both his military and civilian life. This strong willed amiability and sensibility, combined with his years of service in the PDF, tends to see him gravitate to an informal leadership role in any new group he becomes part of.

Unlike most of his guild mates, who saw their mandatory PDF rotations as a burden, Gallan volunteered for the PDF as soon as he was old enough, thinking it would help alleviate the boredom he foresaw in his future after watching his father carry on in the same job he hated for his entire adult life. He found that he enjoyed the rigours of his part-time career, so much so that he volunteered for any and all courses that became available through the PDF. It was an added bonus that attending all these courses meant that he spent less time suffering the tedium of life in the ship yards. It also meant he managed to avoid the worst of the Guild skirmishes and turf wars that dominated life outside of working hours of the working classes of Laviax, and those that he couldn't avoid he was better equipped to deal with than most of his comrades. He didn't avoid them through any sense of fear of getting hurt, he just saw them as pointless exercises in bravado, as there was no real prize to be won by the victors, apart from bragging rights.

Gallan was actually in the capital city waiting to be mustered back to Laviax after completing one such course to become an assault pioneer, when word of the massive Ork incursion into the system and orders for full mobilisation came down the line. He didn't think it would be long before his new found sapper skills would be called on in defence of his planet, and in some ways looked forward to an actual life or death combat situation, after only playing at it for so many years. He would soon learn that getting what you wish for can prove to be very dangerous indeed.

His equipment is pretty much PDF standard. A battered helmet that he was issued on his first training camp many years before, well worn but carefully maintained flak jacket, webbing with more pouches than is regulation, and a backpack. He keeps his bayonet strapped to the chest of his flak jacket next to a field dressing, having learned during the Guild street battles he did his best to avoid that having a blade or a bandage close to hand and easily accessible could prove the difference between life, and if not death, at least a serious maiming. After discovering a fondness for blowing things up while on the Assault Pioneers course, he tries to keep a demolition pack on him at all times, but considering how often he is called on to use them, this does not always prove possible. In lieu of a demo pack, he squeezes as many grenades into his kit as he can. As for his las carbine, he's not quite sure how many he's gone through since the commencement of combat, but it's definitely in the double digits. The one he currently possesses was taken from an injured sergeant he helped evacuate from the front line. It hasn't let him down yet.

Partly because its kinda fun to have a twist here and there (but not to many) and also because I knew if I openly allowed a player to be a marine than there was a good chance everyone would be going for it rather than the PDF characters.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Thought as much. It was worth a shot. Looks like it's just grenades. Lots of'em.

Darkreever gave me the opportunity to present him with a Templar character to fill a void in the rp, an opportunity which I was both honoured and humbled in the fact that he would trust me not to overshadow the other characters in the rp even if it meant giving up the chance to play a female character (as unxp poked fun at me, it is something I have had little chance to do on these forums). Reever asked that I simply edit Roslyn for my new role instead of posting a second sheet which might confuse people.

Now, to the badarse side of him- Yes, Theo is an astartes, which in and of itself means he is somewhat of a badarse. However, something that was part of the discussion as to the character- he is injured, his armour is damaged, and frankly his ammo counters are looking quite lean to say the least without any current means of restocking them.

I have a feeling that Theodoricus is going to need the aid of the pdf and drop troopers as much as they might need him at times.

I for one am rather bored with Marines characters, so its nice to play something else that isn't a marine. Hopefully one of these days I will get to play something not a marine or human, or organic(or seemingly Organic), just to narrow down the field a bit

To be honest one of the reasons I stopped getting into most roleplays is because they were all solely centered about SM.

I'm just happy to be on the player side of the table finally after 2+ years of dm'ing a local campaign and dealing with all the fun stuff that dm's have to deal with.

*whinie player* But, but... X player killed more cultists than I did! He is op!
*me*- You realize he is wielding a standard combat gladius, and you, as a Librarian, have a force sword as well as psy powers? And that your character stood in the back of the fight and monologged for ~3+ rounds. Besides, your dice apparently loath you, you might consider a sacrifice to the dice gods before next game session.
*whinie player* But.... he is still op!
*me*- Sigh... *facedesk*

So, you want a rp that revolves around a set of Tau gun drones?

Now you're cooking with plasma! That's my jam right there


In all seriousness though, gm/dming is hard. I always prefer being the player, it just limits my experiences to the game I join.

Alright, so looks like thats everyone bar @Asamodai and @komanko. Expect an update no later than Tuesday.

Edit: Or I'll hold off on certain things until the next update and get it up today.
