The hive world of Elrenaa has never been a peaceful place. Whether it be the politicking, infighting and cold war of the Upper Spires or the constant battle for survival within the Underhive, none of Elrenaa's people are ever truly safe. Now, things are only getting worse...

The mutant population of the underhives have always been restless, but there protests, rioting and terrorist attacks have always been disorganised and haphazard. Recently though, something has changed. The mutants are getting bolder and more organised, their attacks reaping an ever greater toll on the local Arbites and PDF forces. Nowhere is this felt more than in Hive Saiden, the largest of the planets great cities.

However this is just the beginning. Little do the people of Elrenaa know that events are just unfolding that will shape their world forever.


Hi guys and welcome to my RP Recruitment thread. This is my first time trying to run an RP thread but I've put a lot of planning into this and I think it has potential.

Here's the deal. You will play as a citizen of Hive Saiden on the world of Elrenaa. This can be just bout anyone you might find in the underhive, be they gang members, mercenaries, bounty hunters, enforcers, PDF guardsmen, young adventuring nobles or just ordinary people trying to go about their day. These characters will be swept up into events far larger than themselves which will eventually decide the fate of their world.

Rules:

*The GM's word is final. PM me if you have any issues.

*Death is possible but won't come lightly.

*No Godmodding. That should really go without saying.

*There will be two types of posts, action and conversation. Action posts I'd like to be at least eight sentences. Conversation posts will come into effect when meeting certain characters, responses during conversation can be as little as a single sentence.

*If you start and are unable to post for any amount of time PM me.

I don't have a set number of players in mind for this so to begin with I'll leave this here about a week and see what I get.

Character Sheet
Name [Pretty easy]

Name: Dolsa Terulin

Age: 37

Appearance:

Pale skinned from the lack of light in the under world of Hive Saiden, Dolsa is a rather hairy and slightly overweight fellow. He's got a fair bit of muscle to his arms, and he's worked hard his whole life. He's got brown eyes, a blunt nose, a balding scalp, and a decent sized mustache and beard.

Personality and Background:

Dolsa owns and runs a small bakery in the under hive. Despite being such a small business, his bread and baked goods are reputable, and he has a steady stream of customers. They are far ranging, but most would never be allowed to show themselves in any upper class establishment. He hears a lot of muttering and rumors about the actions of gangers in the area near his business, but he has done well at staying out of trouble for most of his life, aside from a few run ins with robbers, muggers and the like. In his environment, the concept of insurance hardly exists, so the few times his bakery has been broken into, the price was harsh. He keeps to his own. He has no true friends or family, just some common customers he engages in small talk with.

He cares nothing for the greater going ons of the world around him. If something does not directly affect him or his business he feels he has no time or energy to put toward it. The only things he cares about are his business and trying to enjoy his free time spent in his down trodden congested underhive apartment, sleeping in when he can afford to and coming up with new recipes, if he can bothered to even do that.

Weapons: A rather good set of bread knives and metal spatulas. He also keeps a metal pipe in the corner of his shop to fend away petty thieves.

He knows many of his customers are in significant gangs. He feeds them well, hoping if they are happy with his shop, they will leave him alone.

Equipment: Not much beyond his baking appliances and food supplies.

Name - Kage abbot

Age - 21

Appearance - Kage has a slight stocky build due to the lack of nutrition in the food he grew up on. He has short brown hair and blue eyes that have an animalistic quality to them. Due to a life of violence in the dangerous under hives of Elrenaa Kage has earned himself an array of scars on his arms and face. Kage wears a pair of workers overalls that have been modified with the symbols of the gang he belongs to.

Personality - Most likely due to his upbringing in the rough under hive, Kage believes that you look after yourself and nobody else because they will just bring you down. He has been desensitised to the violence of his home and is not bothered with the horrors that take place there. Kage will happily do any job he is given, as long as they pay high enough.

Background - like many born on Elrenaa, Kage was part of a very poor family in the underhives. During his childhood he saw the way people went to a factory day in and day out for their entire lives. He was adamant that he didn't want to live a life like This so he started to make a name for himself. By the time he was in his teens he was part of one of the major gangs in the area.

In the years since then he has robbed, fought and even killed for the gang he strives to be part of.

Weapons - Kage Caries a small stub-pistol that he hides in the many compartments of his overalls. He also caries a vibroblade in his pocket.

Equipment - Kage has a thickened patch of synthetic material placed under his overalls to protect his chest from bladed weapons(no use against firearms).

Name: Oan Larsson
Age: 34
Appearance: Standing at a height of 5'10", Oan is a broad shouldered man of the local Arbites. His full head of hair is greying at its crew cut temples, while his goatee is neatly trimmed with slight greying. He is a worn figure, with a stare that penetrates, his brown eyes all knowing. His body full of minor scars, from riots, street fights, and "accidents." his skin is tattoo'd under his shirt and up to his elbows, recalling events, best left out of history. Typically he wears his armoured great coat, black and not without holes, and his grey jack boots, and dark blue utilities.
Personality : Heavy handed, Oan is not liked by the local young gangs. While not corrupt, he is not above looking past minor incidents with the larger, older gangs, if they keep theirs in line. He harbors hatred toward the nobility, for many reasons, but namely the loss of his fellow arbites. He is liked by the general populace, for protecting them from the infractions of the gangers. Though not socially outgoing, he has been known to relax around friends and crack a smile or remark or two. His voice is deep and his laughter deeper.

Background: Born on Saiden II, a small farming sub hive, he ran off to the main hive when his father died during a local mutant uprising. There he lived as a pickpocket until one day at the age of 13, an old Arbite by the name of Siccero Gundus, caught him trying to pickpocket his jacket. After a beating and learning of Oan's past, Gundus took him in as his own. He raised him under reasonable standards, teaching him morality and ethics, and allowing him to choose his own fate. At the age of 17 he enlisted into the Arbites and passed with flying colors thanks to his surrogate father. Gundus went on to later become the Force Chief for 11 years until he died of heart failure. Oan is currently a Platoon Sgt, working his way to station chief. On several occasions there have been attempts on his life from noblemen to muties, as some form of "retribution" for a crime he saw punishable. There has yet to be a successful attempt, though many comrade have been lost as collateral. He is an avid fan of Dolsa's fresh bread.

Weapons: Hax-Orthlack Armsman-10 Pattern Service Pistol(Stub gun on self), Power Maul(on self), Bootknife(on self), Combat shotgun(in personal locker Various ammo)

Equipment: ID badge, Sunglasses, Flasher(think MIB but just blindness), belt with pouches, flash bang(2), ammo(6+1 in gun), armoured great coat, vox bead, hard knuckle gloves, light flak jacket(20mm) with pockets, boots/utilities, under arm holster.

No you don't have to be gangers. Sorry for the confusion. I just wanted to demonstrate that if you were say, a juvenile gang member you could be younger then say, an enforcer while other professions like priests would likely be older then your average mercenary.

This is a great start, really varied characters, this is just what I was hoping for. All three accepted.

I'm going to be on vacation for a period of 4 weeks next month, but I will try to post as frequently as I can regardless.

Name: Augustus Strict

Age: 34

Appearance: Augustus is a very broad, strong man. Only his strong jaw can be seen from below his helmeted face, as the rest of his body is totally encompassed in the riot armour of the Arbites. Otherwise, he is known to have grey hair and auburn eyes.

Personality: Augustus is a loyal servant of the Emperor. He follows orders to the t, and is utterly relentless in his goals. He sees himself as a protector of others on the battlefield, where he uses his bulk and training to protect those in danger.

Background: Ever since his youth, Augustus had always wanted to join the ranks of the Imperial Guard and fight for the Emperor, because he led a mostly dull, boring life. He conscripted into the local PDF at a young age, and was commended for his exceptional bulk, in comparison to many of the other troopers in the PDF. The commendations went farther however, as he proved himself time and again on the battlefield, aiding greatly in subduing riots and protecting wounded comrades despite great odds. It was not long until he was recommended to the Arbites, an offer which he could not refuse.
Now, he serves the Arbites with utter devotion and continues to fight for peace on the name of the Emperor.

Weapons: Vox Legi-Pattern Arbites Combat Shotgun, Lus Automatic Pistol, Shock Maul

Equipment: Arbites Riot Armour, Med Pack, Handcuffs, Stun Grenades, Smoke Grenades

Rank: Enforcer (though he is under recommendation for Regulator)

Name Damir Avci
Age: 35
Appearance Damir stands 6'3, built like a bear. He has dark brown hair, and deep blue, almost black, eyes, devoid of pity. His long career in the undercity have led to him being scarred across entire body. Damir wears flak armor wherever he goes, and a worn pair of brown trousers.
Personality Damir is a loner by nature, shunning human contact if it all possible. He has a deep distrust of laws and authority, often breaking rules as he sees fit. He makes few friends, but he is utterly loyal to those he makes, often going out of his way to hunt down those who wronged his friends.
Background: Damir has lived on Elrenaa his entire life. He lost his parents when he was five years old due to gang violence, giving him a deep hatred of all criminal gangs. Damir grew up on the streets, begging, and stealing to survive. His hatred of gangs led him to reject crime, but his hatred of the Imperium, who never helped him once in his life, made him wary of having anything to do with them. So he became a hunter of sorts, tracking down gang members and killing them, sometimes for pay, sometimes for free. Damir's tendency to kill gang members outright, and his outright rejection of Imperial Law, have led to him becoming infamous among Imperial Authorities as a violent troublemaker.
Weapons Shotgun, Stub pistol, knife (20 inch, serrated)
Equipment Flak Armor (Constantly Worn), homemade tracking beacons (used to track gang members to hideouts), sheath for knife (on belt), holster for pistol (on belt)

Name: K. Diccardi
Age: 45
Appearance: 6.0" - normal body, not very muscular, but fit and well fed. Looks a lot healthier than people around him. Wears a Stetson, along with a long brown leather jacket and leather gloves.

Personality: Money-grabbing scumbag - as long as money is involved he will do almost anything to make a profit. He takes only calculative risks and is smart.

Background: Born on Elrenaa, but served in the regiment for 10 years on other planets, before relocated to Imperial Navy armament transport unit. Whilst there developed a trade for arms dealing - stealing stock and selling to anyone. He formed good contacts with the Officers in charge of ordering the weapons and left the Navy to become a freelance arms dealer. With his contacts he is able to get you almost anything if the price is right ,but since the majority of his customers are gangs he rarely deals anything else than lasguns and pistols. He is always on the street to find new customers.

Weapons: keeps two lasguns and one laspistol and one bolt pistol in his jacket for selling, also few knives for sale. Due to his reputation he doesn't need to carry a weapon for his personal protection.

Equipment: Money - never walks without a considerable amount of cash (in case he sees a good deal)

Looks good. Only thing I'm going to say is that Shock Maul's are pretty much standard issue for Arbites, rather then a knife. If you don't mind that little change you're in.
I originally wrote shock maul, but I thought it would be too OP considering the shotgun and pistol, but okay!

I would post again, but I'm not sure how far Asamodai wants us to go on our own. If I did post again I'd probably have Dolsa attack Kage, but that would likely need a response from the GM before the players decide what the outcome would be.

I don't think anyone's character would know Dolsa's name yet. Maybe Larsson who was listed as a frequent customer to his shop.

I agree. I think we need to be given specific tasks to complete, else the RP go in strange directions. Also, am I and Larsson supposed to take the armoury back, or do we just kinda wait in front of it?

I tried to pull some connections during the character makeup. Not to mention IRL me loves bakeries.
