Introduction:

Welcome all to Death Watch: Xenos Hunters, in this roleplay you will be playing marines from varying chapters who have all been seconded to the Death Watch 'Chapter' the Imperium's elite of Xenos fighting marines, The Order Militant of the Ordos Xenos of the Inquisitotion, in the hopes that you will bring both glory to your chapter in the eyes of your Death Watch Brothers and should you survive your time in the watch experience in fighting the same foes with your chapter allowing your chapter to stand a much better chance of victory.

To begin with you shall all be starting at one of the six Watch-Fortress's during your training in the Death Watching before you take your 'Second Oath', the oath where you may once more don your armour and the 'Black' where your full training begins. Being from different chapters it means that chapter rivalries will be part of the roleplay for example the best known would be between the Space Wolves and Dark Angels, though it is the rivalries and differences of each chapter that makes Death-Watch Kill-Teams some of the best fighting forces of the Imperium.

Rules:
All the standard rules apply, including the following:
1) No God Modding
2) Respect your fellow role-players.
3) I would like a minimum of 1 paragraph (10 sentences) for each post.
4) Roleplay battles will last a minimum of 2 updates when you fight one vs one or large enemies (such as dreadnoughts)
5) Follow the Character sheet.
6) Post atleast once per update.
7) Have Fun and warn me if you can’t post.
8) Stay IC.

Only just seen your post KingAlle, it looks goof save for the following things:

You will need to wear a helmet especially if you end up on a space hulk and other hostile environments.

Your elk hide will compromise your stealth capabilities of your armour as it doesnt have the armour itself has when its repainted black.

Thats all i can think of for now. and welcome to Heresy

Box now added to accepted character list.

Krymson: add 1 more paragraph to your personality and you will be good to go.

KingAlle: Let me know when you've made the changes i requested then ill look at your sheet again.

Lord Necross: Feel free to sign up, im liking the interest in this as we may actually have a full 10 man squad.

Dark Angel: You got my pm earlier, roll with another wolf if you wish or go with something else entirely you can have my skype/msn if you want and we can talk on there or discuss your character over pms.

Angel of Blood: Let me know how its going mate as i know you were stuck on which chapter to go for.

Librarians = no. They are very hard to regulate without making them over or under powered.

Tech-Marine is open.

So far i have 3 confirmed players with another 7 positions open and by my count we shall be at 8 when the other 5 get their character sheets sorted.

KingAelle, you can have the hide to wear when your on the ship or back at the Watch-Fortress but there is no way they will allow you to wear it during stealth missions.

Will the same be said for the Chaplains robes?
Im going to say yes, and most Chaplains dont wear robes anyway only Dark Angels and their successors but im sure Nol's chaplain is smart enough to know not to.

I think there would be a limit in terms of how old a marine would be when they are sent to the DW as the marine gets older they are likely to get killed easier i believe as even space marines feel their age at some point.

If you plan on being old then its likely you would be on permanent secondment to the Watch.

If you're not a Blood Angel or successor, You want to be more than a few centuries younger than Dante. The Blood Angels are uniquely long lived as it is, but Dante even more so. He's in the mid to late thousand now.
Captain Lysander was lost in the warp for 1000 years and he is quoted saying "He does not remember a time when Lord Dante was NOT leading the Blood Angels."

I agree with AoD, Blood Angels and their successors are supremely long lived compared to other marines so i would suggest a blood angel or one of their successors if you want to be old. But there is no way your going to be in the Death-Watch at 1000 years old.

Still needs to have Eternal Warrior to really be good on table top, though atleast his axe isnt unwieldly.

Asomodia the events of your characters history are very OP if i was to choose a word. While there arent many Hrud left their entropic fields alone would of almost killed you especially after 12 hours fighting them.

I would suggest a new character as this rp actually has a set time in which it takes place.

Looking good Kaiden, your in the accepted list.

Asmodai, any possibility you could add more to each section now that you've toned it down?

Dark Angel - Accepted.

Krymson you've been accepted for awhile so you didnt really need to edit anything. Though I would say im assuming by Chain-Hammer you infact mean Meteor-Hammer?

Am I accepted or is my character sheet too short?...
Think you would be able to expand each of the paragraphs about more? and also if the sanguinary priests of your own chapter fear you could fall to the rage i would doubt they would let you join the Death-Watch.
