Location: Unknown, system uncharted by Covenant data bank.

You are a survivor on the ship "Destined for Glory", a Covenant Assault Carrier, flagship of the former fleet known as the "Fleet of Justice", that was wiped out during the battle for Alpha Halo, betrayed by the brutes, attacked by the flood, not a single ship expect the "Destined for Glory" survived. For three days the crew of the ship fought hard in the blockade around the Halo, to prevent Flood Organisms from escaping, before finally they were hit badly by plasma torpedos from a Brute ship that penetrated the shields, and blew a hole clear through the ship. As a desperate last ditch attempt to rescue every one aboard the ship triggered the engines and jumped into Slipspace.

For a day the ship traveled, trying to get home, to Sangehelios, home of the Sangheili. The ship was badly damaged, leaking air, and the faster than light engines almost completly burned out, the ship jumped out of the slipspace, and arrived to an system unknown to the ships database. But they were not the only ones there. A fleet of Covenant ships, led by an Jiralhane (Brute) Chieftain Bakamus was also there for an unknown reason. As the ship is trying to force its way through their hated enemies to land of the planet for emergency repairs, several important events, that could lead to the destruction of the Sangheili, is about to unfold.

This is where you come in, a proud Sangheili Warrior, that is going to play his part in the upp coming events...



Rules




First off, let me just lay down a few ground rules. These rules apply to every member, young and old, so listen up.

1. No god moding

2. Stay reasonable, you wont head shot everyone, or even hit everyone if you are just a Minor, or even a Major, and yes, you can be wounded, or even die.

3. Follow the plot line, no solo story...

4. Post after every update at least once, but you are allowed to post multiple times.

More rules if I come up with some...


Character Creation:

I will give you an example of a Character, and it is going to be your commanding officer, and I will also give you a template.

Name: Kobi 'Inanraree
Rank: Zealot (Fleet Master to be exact)
Race: Sangheili
Age: 43
Height: 2,2 Meters/7'4 feet
Weight: 143 Kg
Appearance: Humanoid/reptilian body structure, quadruple hinged mandibles with dog-like teeth and a binary vascular system. He wears a gold colored Sangheili Combat Harness, with in built Active camouflage generator.
Weapons: A pair of Type 1 Energy Swords, a Type 25 Directed Energy Rifle (Plasma Rifle) and a Type 35 Directed Energy Pistol (Plsma Pistol).

Strengths: Very good close combatant, ad a master strategist. Prefers ground combat over space.
Weaknesses: Does not like bad news, and has a short temperament, resulting in a few minor "accidents", mostly with the Unggoy (Grunts).





Name: Be realistic with this one, check Halopedia for inspiration... I dont want one with a name like "Danny The Dangerous"...
Rank: Minor or (0-1) Major. A Major must have four grunts.
Age: Be reasonable and take Rank into account when determining your age.
Height:
Weight:
Appearance: A brief description of your armor and colors, any scars and appearnace in general.
Weapons: Ok, no Swords for you guys before you reach the rank of Zealot and are allowed to us them, and also, no fuel rod spam, so it, along with the Beamrifle are 0-1... Everyone has a Plasma Pistol as a secondary, and two plasma Grenades...


Strengths: This is what your character is good at - their skills, talents, and strong traits.
Weaknesses: This is what your character is bad at - their flaws, problems, and weak traits.

Welcome into the ranks of the Sangheili... You will be my second in command. To anyone else wanting a special rank, I say no, he got it cause he helped me make the RP, so big thanks to Kai'n (+rep btw).

You status has been added to the Accepted Characters list....

Ah... Just to those who are interested, I will accept two Jackal and two Grunt characters to add some variety, but you will get a worse treatment than the other guys, as you are no Sangheili, and you will probably find yourself in the meat grinder, so dont expect to be the one that lives longest, but also, probably a bit longer than some people, as you are basically supposed to be the biggest cowards ever!

Really WarMaster Sindr? Really? You absolutely felt the need to toss a post in like that? Fuck at least have the courtesy to add something of worth to the thread so that your at least not just tossing out spam; or in this case the sense of mind to not say anything at all and just ignore the damn thread.


Having said that, you sure your ready for something like this Doelago? Personally, I'd say shy away from the non warhammer stuff myself; not telling you no, because if you and other people can make this work than good for you. Just keep in mind this is a warhammer and 40k forum, not a halo board where you might find people who are a bit better for this.

Well... I dont know, I am only about to give it a try and see what happens... After the death of my old RP I got a bit discouraged at making a new one, and the Dark Eldar VS Imperial Guard failed before it had even started... But I had always wanted to make a Halo one, cause I am a huge fan of Halo, and yes, I could even tell you the name of the sniper rifle (With the numbers and everything) on the middle of the street...

So I am gona give this a try, hope that I could find a Halo fan, or actually a few more than that, but... )

I saw a Halo RP maybe 5-10 pages back on the Forum, and it had found people, even if the RP fell short, had kind of bad post quality, maybe 1-4 lines, not to say that it would be bad to post just 1-4, but I really think that it should be at least 4 to be long enough...

So with that said, I am going to give this a try, and see how it goes... And if it fails, maybe start a new Dark Eldar VS Imperial Guard RP, but we will see...


What about a Hunter character, would that be allowed?.
Ouh, I had forgotten them when I was thinking about NOT having brute characters in the RP...

Yes, I say it loud and clear, You are allowed to use the Hunters! But plz, make two characters, you are going to play with one of them, and the second is going to be your bonded brother and your squad mate, controlled by the player and the GM....



Seriosly A F'in halo thing get out halo is stupid
So... That was absolutely the best thing you could say to someone trying to start an RP? If you really hate Halo that much, then why dont you just ignore everything with the name in it? Sit down and play CoD or something, or just get a damn life, but there is no point in telling me that one of the things in life that I really, really like, would suck? When I first played Halo 2 at my friends house, I fell in love with the game... And I did not even know the story... Now, years later, I have bought and 360, all the games to the 360, and trying to find Halo: CE and Halo 2, and I have almost all of the books, the only thing that I have not got are the comics and the newest book... So that kind of proves that I like Halo , and surely, there is something in your life that you really like? Well, how would you feel if I told you to fuck of cause it sucks? Probably quite bad, and I feel very bad right now, cause I take those kinds of things like personal insults...

Hmm, I reckon I'll join up to this one.
Quick question, can I have a spec-ops character?
If I cant, that's fine, I'm just curious as to whats allowed.

Well, I was actually planing that, but I was just not sure if anyone wanted to be that...

So, yes, you are allowed to use Spec-Ops Characters... Lets say, there are three Spec-Ops Elite Slots, one Grunt and one Jackal...

How many characters is an RPer allowed to field at one time?

Doelago, while its nice to get as many people as possible, don't feel that you have to bow down and cater to everyone's wishes.

Just watching this you have gone from being all of one group, to mixing it up with a few other types, to conceding and allowing someone to play as an exceptionally powerful type of character with an NPC partner (I would strongly advise against this personally), and now your tossing in a new type of character set after people have made characters without these things being known to them.


Whats next? There gonna be flood/human characters allowed?

Flood? How did you guess, say welcome to the Flood tank form... Just kidding, I wont be adding anything more now, I guess... The Hunters are only 0-1, and they would probably be killed quite quickly if they tried to play army of two, as a tank would probably bring them down quite easily... So they cant play Ass Kickers, and they are a part of the Covenant Separatists, so why not? As the Covenant was divided in two, there were people jumping to both sides, so it makes sense... And we might need someone to kick down a door...

But they will not be the funniest guys to play with, as they just say "Wraah", so they are quite silent, and they are the ones that cant voice their opinion, as they are (almost) mindless slaves...

And I know I am being nice by accepting several new things suddenly, but you said it as well, "It might be hard to get enough members for the RP"...

I am not disrespecting you in any way, and I hope that you dont feel so, as I have a lot of respect for you, and I am only happy to take any advices...

(Hey, I'll give it a shot, though I honestly have never made a Covenant character. Please tell me what you think, I'm sure he has some major flaws:grin:)

Name: Dyvofgin Wattinr

Age: 45

Personality: Mashinko is quiet, and deadly. He makes no friends, and follows orders to the letter. He has an oelous nature, and is a very pious man, often found praying to the ancestors.

History: Mashinko comes from the shrine world of Syn, a place where warriors are trained for future leadership of Covenant forces. As such, many are taken from their childhood to this place, and thus Mashinko has little recollection of his past. He trained till he was 25, then was attached to Ship Master Vinko’s forces, putting down the 23rd Ugnot Rebellion. Now he is been transferred out, and is heading to the front lines of the Covenant’s holy war against the infedel humans.

Equiptment: Plasma Grenades, Dual wielded Plasma Guns(the regular ones), Armor of Syn

Sure, but there is one thing I would want you to fix, your last name, it is not a Sangheili linage... The offical sangheili linages are the following:


Ahrmonro • Crolun • Chavam • Fulsam • Ikaporam • Inanrar • Jeqkogo • Kasam • Konar • Losona • Mantakr • Moram • Mortum • Nbek • Nosol • Ontom • Pewtruno • Putum • Qualom • Refum • Rolam • Sraom • Sumai • Taham • Umam • Vadam • Vadum • Wamik • Wattinr • Zamam • Zule


Other vise good, but I want you to change that...
