And the fight comes to us…

Pantheon VII. Home World of the Siege Specters Space Marine Chapter, secret loyal chapter of the Iron Warriors, and bringers of destruction to any defense against the Imperium. Since the Downfall the Siege Specters have hunted down their brothers of the Iron Warriors (Which they refer to as the Dark Iron), and systematically slaughtering the foot soldiers, and capturing the leaders. However recent events surrounding the capture of Warsmith Camelai has brought Camelai’s army of daemons, Dark Iron, and heretics to the Pantheon system, and a war that will test the Siege Specters morale, strength, and even their loyalty to the Emperor…

YOU will be part of a company of Siege Specters fighting on Pantheon V. At most I would like 10 players, They will be controlling the 10 sergeants of the company and their squads. I will control the NPCs, which include the Captain, Camelai and the enemy army. Each squad will follow the standard template for Tactical Squad (6 Bolter Buddies, 2 Plasma/Melta/Flamers, a Heavy weapon, and of course you), however you will throughout the war take on the equipment of Devastators and Assault squads for special missions given throughout the war.


Wargear: (Please be simple, power swords and plasma pistols are fine no relics or anything)
Past: (Don’t be the “Holy Shit!” Juggernaught please keep it simple yet a little heroic since you are the sergeant.)
Personality: (This will influence what kind of mission I would put you on. If you are a bulky marine that would want nothing more than breaking the door down and slaughtering all inside I’m not going to give you the “Sneak into the compound and assassinate the leader” mission.)
Squad Weapons: (as posted above you may choose two marines to have meltaguns, plasmaguns, or flamers along with one marine with a heavy weapon)

I will start the RP when there are at least 5 sergeants and if you REALLY want to be in it but either A. don’t want to be a sergeant. Or B. people have really liked my idea and the 10 spots are full. In either cases please pm me and I will pm a sergeant and see if you can be part of his squad in which you follow his commands. If this becomes popular enough I might bring in a second company or something.

Accepted Application: (Don’t post comments such as “Did you recruit me?” just check here and if your listed then you are accepted if not check back later)

Name: Venatus Furiam
Age: 279
Appearance: Venatus is the same size as any "normal" Astartes. He wears a suit of MK.6 "Corvus" pattern armour. He has blue eyes, and a small scar right above his right eye.
Wargear: Power Sword and Plasma Pistol, Frag Grenades
Past: He first served under the command of Sgt. Lamertus for over a 120 years, unto his eventual death during the retreat on Cosar Bridge where he, three other Brother Marines, and a Predator, were oblivirated by a Plasma Cannon shot during the retreat. The rest of the squad fought their way out to the pick up zone. The squad fought leaderless for several years, before Captain Laertes promoted Veneratus to the rank of Sgt., after he fought his way out of an ambush, carrying the badly wounded Brother Glavius Exododus on his shoulders, plasma pistol spitting death at anyone trying to get close.
Personality: Veneratus is a calm man, and a very stubborn one, who always tries to find a solution in every combat situation. He prefers close combat over shooting, but both work fine for him, and he has marksman honours and he has been nominated for several other awards during his career, mostly due to his refusal to let the enemy win.

Squad Weapons:

Glavius Exodus - Bolter
Apemantus Borge - Bolter
Tylos Nelis - Bolter
Petronius Bael - Plasma Gun
Boreas Leonides - Bolter
Demetrius Thengel - Heavy Bolter
Festus Merrick - Bolter
Hastus Gregorius - Bolter
Bellator Tyrael - Melta Gun
Remataan Jacibous - Bolter

Ok, two questions:

1. Why cant you ask the OOC questions here, rather than just ask an OOC in the action thread, cause there is no point in filling the Action Thread with questions , when you could ask them here. Of course it is fine to post it along with an normal post, but just an OOC, no In Character, is unnecessary...

2. If I remember correctly, my Character asked a question a few pages ago from the captain, but he has not got an reply of any sort, so could you please tell him, so that I could post....
Ok, I just got really confused... I have been planing to do something for some time, but I dont know what the heck just happened... Did Sgt. Lucifier or what ever he was called just go out scouting with my squad, at least that is what I understood... But what the hell did just happen? Did they summon a damn Bloodthirster? Or what the hell is going on, and why the heck would my Marines use boltguns, we are equiped like assault marines... But plz, hippypancake, could you post an uppdate telling me what th hell is going on? Thanks...
I don't think you can summon a bloodthirster using vehicles. You need a BLOOD sacrifice, usually a lot of blood. However, I think Snowy is letting you (GM) decide what happens/ what is summoned ect.
Agreed, but maybe they were filled with BLOOD, that could explain it, they used the vehicles to transport enough [Insert word] to summon a Blood Thirster?
Well, maybe they had a sorcerer wearing a ghillie suit hidding in the bushes somewhere close, telling the Land Riders to release the BLOOD (Bad joke...), and then summoning a Bloodthirster... But I think we should let our GM decide this, as he runs the RP, and as a GM he is allowed to do whatever he wants, and if he wants to, he could tell us that it was just a veird dream or something...
Well... I think we might actually get away from that one big son-of-a-god with out being raped, like totally, using the jump packs... Well... Then I get away, not Lucifier, but shit the same... And we could ask for a Pizza (Lance strike) delivery on those cordinates...
It was an... Interesting... Yes... Interesting discussion I might add, involving loads of BLOOD... Just waiting for you to update the RP, and I will start posting in the Action thread...
Yeah, we kind of got that, but for the sake of god if it is a emperor damned Lord of Change I will have a brief chat with your character before going on a suicide charge... With melta bombs... Mmm... Melta Bombs... And BLOOD !!!
But could I get an update conserning the BLOOD thingie, cause I have no clue about what to post...
well it depends how much blood are you willing to fight?

You are the game master, so you chose how much BLOOD we will be fighting, or what ever it is...
Right, so unless the lot of you would like a thrashing of some sort I'd suggest giving that a rest. Or test things and see just how much blood there will be.:hang1:
OMFG... My heart always stops pounding when I notice that you have posted something, into a RP thread that I am a part of...

Srsly, I fear you man, I fear you... I always believe that you are going to kill me or something... And now it sounds like you are going to do it...
ok no more b-word xD
Agreed... No more of the damn B-word, it is heresy from now on...:ireful2:
Please, do it again if you really want to make me unhappy - darkreever
Shit... I really got scared when I noticed what he had written to hippypancake... But it was also a funny one...
Are we going to have an update soon, or what? Just wondering, cause we have not seen anything in the thread for days...
K, cool, but later today, is probably very early tomorrow for me...
Well whatever, I will most probably first be capable of posting sometime tomorrow...
Ok, thanks for the update, but what the heck are supposed to do?
