The Fate of Elrenaa

2764 Views 29 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Asamodai
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.


*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.

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.

I still have to post. Im on the road to san Francisco so I will asap.
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 tried to pull some connections during the character makeup. Not to mention IRL me loves bakeries.
I will post tonight. Haven't had internet for almost a month now because of move.
