And Deus managed to beat me in getting a post up before the update, kudos to you for that.
I've been mulling over this update for a few days now, over the length and what I want some of the characters to do. Ultimately I've chosen, this time, to keep it a bit shorter; but there is a method to this madness!
Clearly Theo, Elias, and Tobias are more experienced than the rest of the group. The plan has always been for that fact to play a part in how the group interacts. So from this point onward you might see me giving the PDF players a bit less outright direction in place of letting the above three have a go at it.
Because while I will get a feel for how each of the characters will act/react these are still your characters first, you know them better than me. So for now, @Euphrati, @dark angel, and @unxpekted22 will be able to have their characters decide who does what in this update (read the update and you'll see what I mean.)
And for any and all PDF players don't worry, your characters will become more experienced and battle hardened as time goes on. In time they will more than likely will know what to do and be trusted to do it.
After a rather long absence from this site, I am throwing in a character that I hope will be able to bring me back into rps. Here is my rather rusty looking character!
Name: Markus Lineas
Appearance: A rather unassuming individual, Markus is small and thin, standing at barely 5'7" and weighing no more than 120 pounds. His hair is a light shade of auburn and since his induction into the PDF his once long but messy hair has been cut so short that people that knew him before would never be able to recognize him. Markus' eyes are a deep shade of brown, and help with his rather unassuming look. His face is kept clean shaven, though not entirely by choice but rather the inability to actually grow some noteworthy hair which leads to people mistaking how old he actually is. He is of a pale complexion, having spent most of his life growing up in one of Prolial Prime's space port cities. He has a handsome face and carries a rather infectious smile across his face at all times.
Personality: Markus is a seemingly jovial but annoying individual, loving to hear the sound of his own voice above others. Whilst he grew up on the streets of one of Prolial Prime's spaceports he learnt quickly that whilst he wasn't much of a fighter, he was able to talk his way out of troublesome situations. As a result of this he will always try and talk his way out of certain duties and situations since joining the PDF with varying degrees of success.
Markus is a fairly loyal individual, looking out for himself as well as those that he cares about above all others. He is not a particularly devout man, having witnessed the disparity between the rich of
Prolial Prime and the poor, leading him to question privately whether the God-Emperor is one worth worshiping.
Background: Markus Lineas was born to a poor family indebted to one of the local gangs. His family would harbor their illegal goods on their property before they were killed by another gang who were trying to steal black market goods from the house. As a result of his parents death when he was just a child he sent to live with his Aunt, who wished to have nothing to do with him. As a result of this he spent more time out on the streets falling into the wrong crowd and joined a gang at a very young
age as a thief, pick-pocketing what he could to survive.
He knew he wasn't a fighter from an early age and would prefer to try and talk his way out of fights with other local youths, even going so far as offering them what he had managed to pocket that day to avoid confrontations. As he grew up he became better at stealing, and as a teenager would start to charm and distract people as he pick-pocketed them, or so that one of his friends would be able to steal from their bags and such. Eventually his life as a thief would come to an end when he was attempting
to pickpocket a low level administrator charming her before her rather jealous boyfriend, who happened to be an Arbites started to pick a fight and pushed him, revealing that he had his hand in her bag and was trying to swipe what he could. After a rather serious beating he was taken to a Arbites precinct where he was given a choice, hard labor or join the PDF.
Markus found himself somewhat reluctantly joining the PDF, which is where he has been for the last three years. During that time he has attempted to do as little as possible, though he has managed to make some extra cash through procuring items as well as gaining the favor of junior Non commissioned officers through his charm and his procurement of items. He like the planet was not ready for the Orkish invasion, and found himself questioning whether he should have chosen the hard labor
over the PDF as there will be no chance of him talking his way out of this predicament.
Equipment: Frag grenades, a combat knife, spare ammo, and sub-standard flak vest and helmet
I am hoping that this is acceptable, and will obviously change whatever is asked.
Khornate Renegade I would like to see how Hal reacts to Theo before posting as it will somewhat determine how Theo treats him and the other PDF troopers. Even if it is a short post from you regarding that bit, it would be much appreciated. :grin:
Dark angel, Euphrati, and I have got some dialogue down between our characters. DA and I will be reaching out to some of the guard players next, just so everyone knows we are still here and working on posts.
Are people away for the summer? Or just waiting on posting for some reason?
I'll be posting again for Theo before I leave to drive across the country, but if any characters want to interact with him I need to know within the next ~24 hours so that I can include that into my second post.
I really enjoyed your post Asamodai. You're character is a complete, up-himself, arse, but you play him very well. This should be interesting...
On that note, anyone in future posts is free to comment on the fact that Alec will raise an eye-brow quizzically and have a look that roughly would translate to "What they hell just happened?" I just figured that those couple of lines don't require a separate update. However, if anyone wants to talk to Alec, I'll probably include that at the start.
Am I to take it that it's just down to the 6 of us? Me, Euph, Lord, Asmo, Unx and DA? I know darkreevers schedule is mental, but if that's all we've got left maybe let him know so he can think about an update and if not, can you folks get to posting (those who haven't),
