Decided to try and GM, I hope you will enjoy it as much as I hope I will.


Story:

A Crimson Fists RP

The Crimson Fists, descendants of the Imperial Fists, and infamous heroes against the green tide. Their history is awash with thousands of bloody fights and campaigns against the orks menace, most important of which a battle for the chapter's survival on their homeworld. Decades have gone by since the Rynn's World Massacre, and the chapter stands able to to claim its return to half strength from near destruction.

The rebuilding was hard fought, but in the end the Fists laid claim to one of the most ancient of their tenets: they are the sons of mighty Rogal Dorn and they never give up without fighting to the last; be it on the battlefield or within their very genetics.

When the call for aid from battlefleet Zermund is received, the Fists can't ignore the plea and send what forces they can. The strike cruiser, "Crimson Dawn", is dispatched with half of the 4th company under the command of captain Ardias Syth. They are charged with aiding the forces of the Imperium and to break the back of WAAAGH!!! The Crimson Fists must keep the Fledren sector out of xeno clutches!

Despite the urgency of the plea, it has still take seven weeks of warp travel; seven weeks of waiting to bring death to one of the most hated of enemies. Breaking free from the warp on the outer rim of the system where the most recent battles were taking place; the Fists have arrived just in time to make sure that the world of Ulzor IV be where the ork advance is stopped.

The waiting is at an end, the Crimson marines shall make high orbit within the hour. It is time for the strike teams to ready themselves, to unleash slaughter upon the foe soon.

Name: Brother Miguel Orthus

Age: 75

Appearance: 275cm tall with iron grey stubble hair, a vertical scar over his right eye, and flinty blue-grey eyes. Lean but well muscled with relatively angular facial features. Generally has an grim yet eager expression etched on his face.

Personality: Orthus enjoys irony, sarcasm, and the thrill of battle. He is direct and somewhat impatient, but has a focus and dedication to his Chapter and the Imperium. Somewhat sociable compared to some of the other more dour members of the Chapter.

Background: Brother Orthus was recruited into the Chapter several years after Waaagh! Snagrod devastated Rynn's World, and he has been working hard to earn his place amongst the Fists. He has a penchant for mid- to close-range combat, using, bolt, blade, and fist to sunder his enemies. His love of explosives is matched only by his stubborn refusal to lose a fight without good cause. He served admirably in the assault role until his reassingment to his current tactical squad of the 4th Company. In this role, he has been the first in and the last out of nearly every engagement he has been called upon to fight. He acquired the scar over his right eye battling the hated greenskins during one of the many campaigns of vengeance after the Rynn's World conflict, slaying an ork nob single-handed and barely preserving his natural eye. Upon finishing the kill, he turned to his brothers, asking "Know where I can find another of these bastards?"

Weapons: Bolter, Bolt Psitol, Combat Blade

Equipment: 3 Frags, 2 Melta Bombs

Class: Tactical Marine/Demolitions

Age: 57

Apperance: Dark Brown Short hair, Deep royal blue eyes with a hint of green. Roughly 258cm Tall with a Lean but average Marine body shape. Has a Wolf Tattoo on right side of Head.

Personality: Friendly but often the silent type and will usally only respond in battle with tactical information. Stout and stubbon, just like the chapter, He refuses to back down in battle and will press forwards without support in order to save a brother marine's gene-seed.

Background: Born with a violent Childhood, A slum clinc took him in as an apprentice to teach the art of medical science. When the chapter took him in for recruitment, he was a natural at Being a field medic. As a scout his most reconised accomplishment was when him and his squad were behind enemy lines and the Sergeant had been posioned with an unknow toxin able to overcome his organs. Using His intiative, he managed to save the sergeant and the squad completed their mission. After the mission, The sergeant recommended him for an Apothecary position and has ever since served as one.

Weapons: Bolt pistol, Combat Blade

Equipment: Frags, Narthecium and reductor

Out of curiosity, what makes you think that you will be getting more gear? I mean, seeing as you are playing a regular squad; why would you be getting extra stuff? Its not as if what you will begin with is not going to be very powerful.

@darkreever: I don't particularly see that as relevant because 1 you aren't running the RP, 2 it could represent acheiving veteran status as the RP goes on (I don't expect it immediately), and 3 I don't see you signed up for the RP.

Just saying.

Perhaps seek out some facts before making judgments:wink:

I may not be in this RP, it may not be mine, but Komanko did speak with me about it and ask for some help/suggestions and still welcomes them. Actually, if we are to be perfectly honest, I pretty much wrote the story bit in the first post, the age restriction, that you ignored I might add, the weapon and equipment loadouts, and single veteran marine were all things I came recommended. (If you would like the PM to see that each of those are taken verbatim I would be happy to show you; note I am in no way opposed to this.)


Also, what does being in the RP or not have to do with legitimate questions regarding someone just assuming something like the players will be getting 'better' gear anyway? Its a perfectly legitimate set of questions, my first post.

Some people assume that even though you play space marines, each one has to be this super special, super unique, epic badass who can take on armies so that they can stand out from the others. Problem is, when everyone does that, you all begin to look the same, and you sacrifice personality and quirks for it no less.


Things like the bolter, bolt pistol, chainsword, and combat blade are more than enough for anything you will likely find yourself up against anyway.

I assumed nothing. It was mostly in jest, even while I dream of my mighty power fist swinging hero, I'm quite fond of the good ol' bolter. Plus it was framed as a good-natured question, not an expectation or demand. And props for the RP if it's your brainchild. I'm not entirely sure what I said to elicit such a response lol

Lack of tone, the post felt more like not feeling the need to answer because I have nothing to do with this RP and there were a few reasons behind the not answering.

To make sure the record is straight, this RP is not mine, it is entirely Komanko's. He merely used things I came up with or suggested; the idea itself is his, and the story (the whole thing, not that little bit up top) is his.

Name: Brother Marcus Ramirez

Age: 38

Appearance: 7'8" approx. 316 lbs, leaner than your stock marine but just as fit. Messy short brown hair with a thin chinstrap beard all the way down to a small jagged goat. Steel blue-gray eyes.

Personality: Stubborn, fiercely loyal, and a bit of a glory hunter on the field. Out of combat he is pleasant and sociable but still holds onto a few superstitions from his deathworld upbringing (such as if you look into someones eyes as you kill then they are forced to be your slave in the afterlife)

Background: Not too much is known of his life before becoming a marine just the loose superstitions that remain. His time in the scouts saw him excel becoming a notable marksman but a bit of a brawler in close combat. They were used as a hit squad of sorts sent to hunt high priority targets which accounts for his glory hunting ways. Still relatively fresh to the tactical marines always willing to take direction from more senior brothers.

Weapons: Bolter and combat blade.

Equipment: 3 frag grenades.

Name: Brother Vermian Lestron
Age: 41

Appearance: 225cm tall, short cut brown/red hair, light green eyes, has extensive burn marks across his left side, including his face. He is very athletic and muscular.

Personality: Vermain is a stubborn man who can be sometimes impulsive. He can be cold and calculating at times, but to fellow warriors he is normally respectful. He does have problems in many social situations as it is a place that he feels least at home.

Background: Vermian was born onto a war torn world. His life was constant chaos. From an early age he learned the harsh reality that all things end. One of his favorite memories is of his father telling him and his siblings about the great warrior giants who descended from the sky to fight a heretical foe. It was one of the last memories of his parents. Quickly afterword another war began against the green skins. At the age of 11 Vermian participated in the trials, and was accepted as an initiate of the Crimson Fists. While he was a scout his talents were used well. His athletic build allowed him to close with his enemy allowing him to excel in the use of close range antitank weapons. It was as a scout that he acquired his scars. Several times he charged to close and discharged his weapons. During a raid on a traitor guard detachment a hellhound’s fuel tanks ruptured bathing him in liquid fire. After the incident Vermian began to adjust his tactics. At times he still has flashes of his impulsiveness, but they are easily quelled. Due to the nature of his weapons Vermian has also been forced to learn the art of close combat.

Weapons: Meltagun, Bolt pistol, Combat blade, Combat knife

Equipment: 2 Krak Grenades, 1 Frag Grenade

Brother Elias Kalon

Age: 47

Appearence: Heavy set and larger than the average marine making him perfect for the role of a devastator, squad mates often joke that he wouldn't fit into a suit of terminator armour. His dark hair is shaved close to his scalp leaving only a hint of a dark patch across his head. His deep eyes are a rich brown and kind, clashing with his massive form. Has an aquilla tattoed to the back of his neck.

Personality: Kalon is loud and hearty, with a deep voice, deep even for a marine. Believes in a shoot first, ask questions later policy, which can make him seem impatient at times. Friendly and easy to get along with, Kalon is often used as a liason with other forces if needed. Like most astartes he depises all heretics and xenos, particularly the Orks, while not having been in the astartes at the time of the diaster of Rynns world the hate is embedded into the chapter as a whole.

Background
Even as a ordinary human teenager Kalon was large, and fierce, making him an obvious candidate for recruitment into the Crimson Fists Astartes Chapter, struggling to recover from their enourmous casualties they suffered at the hands of the Orks a few decades before. Kalon went through rigorous and gruelling trials to become an astartes and was inducted into the Scout Company as all fledging astartes are. As early as a scout he became a heavy weapons specialist, carrying either a Heavy Bolter or Missile Launcher and carried on this specialisation when inducted into a Tactical Squad on full completion of his transformation into a Space Marine. He has fought in many battles and campaigns since his induction to the chapter. During one battle with the Orks on a space hulk he lost his left arm from the elbow further increasing his hatred of the race. A Bionic replacement was fitted after the battle which only helps to aid his stablity with heavy weapons. He now moves with the rest of the 4th company aboard the Crimson Dawn to the Fledren sector to do battle with the hated Orks once more.

Weapons: Trained in all heavy weapons, Kalon favours the continous firepower of the Heavy Bolter. Carries no backup weapon other than his combat blade, needing as much room as possible for his weapons ammo.

Equipment: 3 frag grendades
