Introduction
A cell of Inquisitorial Acolytes are called to the Imperial world of Vaxhayn, in order to investigate a disturbance in the underhive. Their superiors tell them that it is just a local gang-war, but little do they know that it is something far, far worse...

Rules
Essentaily, these are the same rules as on any other Roleplay thread on Heresy. The rules thread can be found here if you are interested.

Please try to keep you posts to a minimum for 4 lines. As you are aware description is an integral part of this game, so describe you environmet, your thoughts, your intentions etc

Characters
I am looking for a group of around 5-6. Any more and the game will be too easy (in my opinion). Characters can be of any background, however since this is the acolytes first mission with the Inquisition, they should be yound and (somewhat) inexperianced.

Characters should be built on these guidelines.
Name
Age
Appearance
Personality
Background
Weapons (characters are limited to choosing one primary weapon, one side-arm and one close combat weapon)

Primary Weapons include: Lasguns/Carbines (including the Longlas), Autoguns, Shootguns, Primitive Weapons such as Crossbows, Primitive Rifles and other such feesable weapons.

Side arms include: Laspistols, Boltpistol (use sparingly or come up with a reason why your character should have one), Handbow, Handflamer etc.

Close Combat Weapons include:Shock Mauls, chainswords, daggers, knives, clubs, brass knuckles etc

Equipment: Any personal gear, armour (Flak vests etc)

If your interested, drop a reply. Early birds may receive bonus equipment (powerblade instead of regular weapon). Hope you have fun if you join up!!

Personality: Spook is a an optimistic individual who is friendly and lax when around those who employ him, this front hides his paranoid, suspicious nature. Spook is cool and collected under fire, though is prone to bouts of silence. He is always looking for some way to get some form of information or some way to make a quick credit, but is at the same time loyal to his employer unless they betray him.

Background: The bastard son of a hive noble, Barnabus was cast in the under hive when his farther found signs of mutation on his mother and fearing scandal cast the young boy into the under hive, though he was free of corruption. He spent his early teens bouncing from gang to gang learning how to fight and survive in the dark.

He became an expert at navigating the hidden gantries and passages and soon many a gang fought in order to hire his services. He soon came to the attentions of a dishonoured gang of Delaque gangers, hiding from the wrath of the heads of the house on Necromunda. He was entered into the house and ran with them for several years until the gang was torn apart by infighting.

Spook was later hired by missionaries and arbitrators to show them the hidden ways in through the under hive and gathers information for them, it is these skill that brought him to the inquisitors attentions and hired him for a considerable sum.

Weapons: Lasgun, laspistol, long knife.

Equipment: filter plugs, infa-red goggles and map.

Good stuff Pyro.

Does he have any equipment? You mentioned he was a great navigator, so perhaps he should have items such as compasses, cartography tools etc.

Also, "Spooks" knife is now a Monomolecular Blade. This gives it great effect against armour.

Thanks for joining!

Name: Aleron Calixtus

Age:34

Appearance: Aleron is 6'6" tall, slim build, with olive skin that is covered in various tattoos. His black hair is close cropped never reaching more than 1 inch. Wearing a black black body glove for maximum mobility, he is not the best in avoiding color clashes. Also carrying a curious metallic chain, that he is reluctant to speak of.

Personality: Coming from the notorious Gunmetal city, Aleron has seen his share of violence this has hardened him, but also taught him humanity. Mostly though Aleron enjoys the company of other people bringing his jolly spirit to the table. In battle he almost always prefers close combat as his skills with a blade (or just about any other object that can cause harm) are extensive, but he is not unable to kill from a distance.

Background: Found in the Forge of Takara, one of the districts of Gunmetal city, he was an orphaned swordsman among gunman. Raised on the streets he developed his skills with a blade, fighting local gangs until offering his services as a mercenary in the local hive wars. He acquired his fine blade in one such war with the Khayer-Addin Fane, striping if off the body of a fallen bodyguard.

After leading several victories in the name of Takara and smashing a heretical cult, he met and was drafted by the inquisition to serve the Imperium. Lucky for him because nobles had just found out about Aleron and one of their daughters.

Weapons: Laspistol, Lasrifle, Sword of the House of Addin (Think of a cooler name later).

Welcome blackhole.

Due to his formidable skills as a Swordsman, Calixtus's sword "The Sword of the House of Addin" is now a perfectly balanced weapon, increasing its attack speed.

Thanks for joining.

Welcome Anfo and Jozzak.

@Anfo: I think I will be doing a lot of copy and pasting with the name Njörðr :laugh:

@Brother Jozzak: Does Jackson carry a main weapon at all? (Also Welcome to Heresy!)

Whilst it is not my place to say so, perhaps you should read up on monomolecular stuff? It's mainly Eldar (I believe) and usually in the form of a wire mesh, and incredibly rare; how you'd ever make it into a blade edge (one molecule thick edge. You wouldn't be able to see it if you held it sideways.) let alone how rare and costly it would be... very thin, or maybe power-coated; but monomolecular? Unless I'm very, VERY wrong, that is... very, very valuable.

Just thought I should let you know. :eek:k:

I'm afraid your wrong on that one. The Imperium has the technology, in fact i belive that the Catachan claw is a monomolecular blade. It is the Eldar's command of monomolecular ranged weapons such as the shuriken catapult or the Death spinner. Though monomolecular blades are rarer and more expensive than normal blades.

Welcome Snowy. Ok, we are almost done!

@ Darvelath: I was going off the Dark Heresy book in terms of the mono-knife and I agree with Pyro that the Eldar would be masters at the craft, but the Imperium has access (althouogh a rudimenty one at that).

It should be noted that a mono-edged weapon is just what it sounds like. The cutting length of the blade has been honed to a unbelievably sharp edge and coated with a super hard/durable substance- normally a form of synthetic diamond. This results in a weapon that will not only cut you if you look at it the wrong way, but also will never need to be sharpened.

Also, a mono-edged blade is capable of parrying a power weapon (depending on the weapon of course) with a fair chance of not being outright destroyed by the power weapon's field; however this typically does not fare well for the mono-weapon, leaving it marred and losing its mono-edged trait.

Mono-edged is not really 'rare' per say, however they are normally 'family' blades and/or very costly pieces. A vast majority of Astartes blades are mono-edged as the process of coating and strenghtening the blade suits their needs very nicely.

OK, so we are just one person short of finishing the team. I think it would be benificial for all of you guys to discuss here your style of gameplay, how your character operates and how you are going to work together (yes.....teamwork GASP) in order solve the mysery.

To the MYSTERY MOBILE!
