View Full Version : Space Marine RPG-Recruitment Phase

Hello all. Once more with my return (as I so often do now it seems), I have actually had an idea of what to do for a Space Marine RPG.

First big style ground rules:
-No fluff issues. I know Space Marines are Warrior Monks etc etc, but I don't mind some flaws like drinking (Space Wolves) or other things (Dark Angels, Blood Angels, Flesh Tearers etc) as long as I deem it fluffy. No girlfriends, no swinging '60s stuff among other Human things. Marines are Warriors and thats it, understand?

-You are a Space Marine, but not immortal. You do something stupid like: Run head long at a tank with no cover and single handly destroy the tank (without a scratch or without support) then I will have that tank blow up with you next to it. Death is an option. So is losing limbs. Realism will be injected ok?

For now those are my big issues. Anything else that crops up will be dealt with on the spot ok?

For the RPG:

Plot: You are all from 'Home Grown Chapters,' so that means I want variation and not Codex Chapters, but they are welcome, but not recomended. Use the Trait system in the back of the Space Marine codex to design a chapter, unless you are a sub-chapter of Space Wolves, Dark Angels, or Blood Angels, then feel free to use their background and traits.

You have all been assembled for a rare mission. An Inquisitor has organised a strike force into an enemy held sector and needs a small unit of Marines to infiltrate the system. The planet we are being sent to is a Shrine world dedicated to Primarch Lion El'Johnson where a piece of his armour lies. At the moment it is rumoured Fallen Angels are on the planet and Cypher is rumoured to be controlling them.

This kill-team is being sent in to recover the artifact and kill the Arch Heretic who holds sway over the planet. One of the sub-commanders of the Dark One who rules the sector.

Thats the plot at loose. Also just a note: Cypher will not be making any cameos ok? He is an element to the storyline, but we will not confront him ok?

Characters:
I only want Space Marines, preferably home grown chapters as it adds to the fun ok?

As for limitations, well not everyone can be a Librarian, Chaplain etc, so here they are:
0-1 Chaplain (Equip from Armourary)
0-1 Tech Marine (No full servo harnesses or servitors ok?)
0-1 Space Marine Hero (the dude with the shield and sword in a retinue) (Equip from Armourary)
0-1 Apothecary
1+ Veterns (Veterns may have bolt pistol and close combat weapon combo OR a Bolter and combat knife)
-0-1 Plasma gun, 0-1 plasma pistol, 0-1 meltagun

I will be using the Space Marine Librarian postion and my character will be the Leader of the unit obviously ;).

So lets see what happens. My Marine will be up tomorrow as I am out of time and need to go to a Lecture.

Veteran Brother-Sergeant Kaspar Vahdler.
Age: 41
Chapter: Spirit Breakers [Chapter colours: Sandstone, with detailing of gilt and bone - Insignia: A skeletal, twin-headed Pteradon, or ancient, winged lizard of prey]
Trait/Motto: Cleanse and Purify.
Armour: Iron Armour [Armour Variant 3] (http://www.solegends.com/citcat911/c2007smarmourvariant-h.htm)
Arms: Slazton: can I take a boltgun with a chainblade bayonette, in the fashion of Bolter 8, bottom left-hand corner, (http://www.solegends.com/citcat911/c2010smmarines-m.htm) this being an antique honoured weapon reserved for veterans? Plus combat knife, and can I take frag or krak grenades or a Conversion Field as well?
Other Chapter background details I can flesh out along the way?

Can I have a Veteran Sergeant with a Storm Bolter, Bolt Pistol and grenades?

If so:

Name: Layne Oorik
Age: 153
Height: 7' 4" [7' 8" with armour on]
Rank: Captain [equivalent of Veteran Sergeant, explained later]
Chapter: The Sons Of Pain
Company: 11th company [Special operations]
Armed with: Storm Bolter, Bolt Pistol, Frag and Krak Grenades [usually only takes one kind into battle]
Appearance: Armour is mostly black, the left shoulder pad is red with black trim with the Chapter symbol, a large skull, on it. His feet are red, as are some details on his armour [backpack vents, backs of hands, wings on chest etc.]. His breastplate is the kind with a big collar, and has a dirty silver vent/speaker in the middle of the wings on it. He wears a tabard with two purity seals holding it up [it's on the commander sprue] he also has a purity seal just below his chapter symbol, one on each of his guns, two on his right shoulder pad and one on his leg/ankle [a bit OTT but he's very dedicated]. He has a pure white skull on the top of his backpack, it is made of metal and is for decoration purposes only.
Out of his armour he is dark skinned [not black, indian looking] although he has a gruff voice and a scarred face, his hair is black and rather short.
Background: Joined the Sons of Pain chapter, and was known amongst the ranks for being extremly tacful and stealthy. He is one of the few survivors of the Fort Gray Battle, where the Chapter's first Chapter Master died at the hands of Kraa the Arch-Terrorist, a powerful Ork Warlord/Dreadnought. Layne was soon the first member amongst the newly formed 11th company, only the people in it, their Chapter Master and the 2nd company Captain know of its existance. The 11th company is highly elite, consisting entirely of hardened Veterans and marines so courageous, or so stupid, that they fight without armour. The hardened veterans of the company usually wear Scout armour, to be more stealthy, but the higher up men within the 11th company wear power armour. Those that wear no armour, see proper battle very rarely, and are usually involved in policing the Sons of Pain's homesystem, these men are usually acolytes who barely failed to become a space marine, and have not yet been given the Black carapace implant, to blend in more easily with the common folk. Layne, as the first member of the 11th company, was obviously the captain, although he had no where near as much experience as any other captain. Layne later lead the 11th company to destroy Kraa the Arch-Terrorist along with the 2nd company.

Notes: The Sons of Pain have a highly specialised chapter structure and so each company has it's own vehicles, scouts, brothers, veterans, libarian[s], chaplin[s], techmarine[s] etc. and the first four companies have terminators. Although the 10th company has the least veterans and the most scouts, and the 1st company, which is, incidentally, led by the Chapter master, not a 1st company captain, has the most veterans and the least scouts.

Name - Cortez
Age - 486
Class - Apothecary

Equipment - Bolt Pistol, Power Fist, Terminator Honour Apathacica Honourus, Apothecary Kit (don't have the Codex so I don't know the names...).

Appearance - Cortez is an eight foot tall Space Marine from the Iron Falcons, primarilly a Scout Marine Company deployed for massive Stealth missions.
Cortez's armour is, unlike most camo-style armour, several shade's of green. It forms a pattern of parsley over and over again, layering itself time and time again, and for some reason, this hides Cortez completely (I had a parsley shirt on like that once... I could hide in a bush with a bright blue t-shirt and no one could see me... the parsley shapes just distorted my image too much, so why not apply that technique here...? ;)). Only the metal is still it's usual metalic colour, however, that too has the parsley pattern on it. (I am being serious, you know, ;))

History - Cortez rose though the Iron Falcons ranks quickly, spending the usual thirty years as an ordinary Scout, before becoming a full Battle Brother, and becoming a Veteran Sergeant ten years later at the battle of Narres Shadabna on Planet Peigrein. Another two years later, he was promoted to the company's Medic after the company's original Medic found the nozzle of a Chaos Marine Bolter. As Cortez took that position, he took responcability for each other Marine in that company.
At the battle of Felgand IV, Space Hulk Niner-Seventeen/11/B/Delta, Cortez failed to save a whole seven Marines from death. Cortez, believing this to be his own fault, damned himself and became one of two Apothecary's, announcing that he needed help, and would apprentice another to take his place amoung the Company, and now has only joined this position to try attoning for his failure. However, the Chapter Marshal of the Iron Falcons decided that a simple Apothecy wouldn't be sufficient for what Cortez intended to do. Cortez spent two weeks out of armour as a Tech-Marine carefully placed the Terminator Honour Apathacica Honourus upon the left shoulder pad, signifying that should Cortez fail again, he would be Exiled from the Iron Falcons. This may insure that Cortez succeeds and become more convident in his abilities as Company Apothecy yet again, and save more Marines than he lost.


Terminator Honour Apathacica Honourus was just a name that sounds fancy, since I can't remember any of the actual Terminator Honours...

Name: Hironius
Age: 147
Rank: Chapter Champion (hero)
Equipment: Power weapon, bolt pistol, combat shield, Frags, melta bombs, bionics.
Chapter: Phoenix Guard
Company: 1st
Appearance-
Height: 7'5"
Armour: Mostly dark red, the shoulder pads & greaves are white. On the left pad is the Chapter symbol, a phoenix rising from a dying fire.
Out of his armour Hironius has darkly tanned skin, brown hair and usually wears dark robes.
History: Hironius was found by the chaplain of the Phoenix Guard on a world they had purged of a Chaos taint. They found him clutching a sword, surrounded by more than a dozen dead cultists. He went through the traing process as normal, excelling as a scout he was quickly promoted to full battle brother. At the bright young age of 70 he was promoted to Sergeant, as a badge of office, the master artificer remade his blade into a power weapon.
Hironius accepted this position to prove his worthiness of being the Chapter Champion.

i think ill take the chaplain position...
Name: Da-Ku
Age: 316
Rank: Chaplain
Equipment: A pair of Katana blades (basically 2 power weapons), rosarius.
Chapter: Tsunami Legion
Company: 1st
Height: 7'6"
Armour: Complete black armour, robes covering most of the armour, samurai looking deathmask on.
History: After a series of victories leading the 4th company of the tsunami legion against the chaotic forces of the night lords, upon returning to the home planet, chapter master Kurayami, unknown to the rest of the chapter had been possessed and had begun the series of events that led to the chapter being under investigation by the inquisition. Da-Ku realised what was going on and helped exorcise the daemon from Kurayami and restore the chapter master to his former glory, for his great deeds and immense spiritual strength, Da-Ku was awarded the title of master of sanctity of the chapter. Da-Ku has become famous throughout the chapter as never knowing fear and inspiring marines around him to great deeds. Da-Ku has been trained in the use of his two katanas for many years and never goes anywhere without them as they are considered by him to be a part of his spirit and he can never be parted with them.

New Cult King
10-02-2006, 01:03
Name: Kultus

Age: 280

Rank: Veteran

Equipment: Chainaxe, bolt bistol, ritual sword (slung across back)

Chapter: Hellhounds

Company: 1st

Height: 8'1'

Armour: Black armour, red shoulder pads, respirator, and kneepads. Bone coloured Aquila on chest. Armour is draped in chains and furs, looks feral. Often fights with only the respirator and a bare head, which is shaven. Face has ritual scarring.

History: The Hellhounds were an experimental attempt to fuse the Space Wolved geneseed with the purity of the Ultramarines geneseed. The result was better than expected: the feral mutations seen in the Space Wolves (the Wulfen, fangs) were purged. However, the warriors formed from this gene stock tend to be taller and broader than most Marines, which in extreme cases can require modified power armour, a rarity in these times. Asteroth, the homeworld of the Hellhounds, is a planet wracked with massive and violent tectonic movement, resulting in many volcanic eruptions, fire storms, and earthquakes. Having been born in "Hell" itself, the Hellhounds are known for their hardiness and courage in combat.

Kultus rose to Veteran status while fighting under Lord Inquisitor Uriah, a high-ranking member of the Ordo Hereticus, during a century long purge of a psyker cult in the twin systems of Coriannis and De'Naal. He is generally quiet and composed, but in battle becomes a whirling dervish of fury and destruction, only to suddenly return to a calm state once the threat is defeated. Completely loyal to the Emperor, Kultus still exhibits some of the primitive behaviour of the people that spawned him, such as chipping kill markings into his armour, and ritual scarification.

armour:red armour , left shoulder pad is black , right shoulder pad is red with gold lineing ,gray kneepads, and a gold helmet
history: the furys legionnaires were created for the purpose of batelling enemies of great numbers . to do this they fused the blood of a fury with grey knights to lower the risk of demonic mutation cuasing them to be more ferocious in battle. nothing is known about the fury legionnaires home world or if there is one.

ra'mac khet was one of the first to have his blood fused with a furies blood. there were sideeffects from the experiment these being that his left eye became a dark red and his right eye becoming pure black , his skin was turned a silver coloration . scince ra'mac khet was for the most part a success other greynights were abducted and enfused with the blood of a furies . the one major sideefect was that they bacame shorter than your average marine and drink blood as opposed to water .

@ Hate Train - Hironius is the Champion (hero). His Rank is Vet sergeant but he is the current Chapter Champion of the Phoenix guard.
I think I will change the way I worded my character sheet so it's clearer.
Sorry for the missunderstanding.

I don't think we're allowed heavy weapons, but Slazton didn't say we weren't allowed any... Hmm...

I was hopeing for heavy bolter or a rocket launcher.

Slazton
11-02-2006, 11:41
Right I knew the weapon load out would cause issues, so I have decieded to do this:

vforvenator: You may have the weapon as I can see it being a reward for some action that your Marine had done. So yes to everything expect the conversion field.

For everyone else I would like to see something like this (unless you are a 'character' model eg Chaplain, Apothecary etc):

-Bolter and Combat Knife (may be swapped for some other hand to hand weapon, but not pistols or power weapons)

-Bolt Pistol and Close Combat weapon (no power weapons)

-Plasmagun and Combat Knife (may be swapped for some other hand to hand weapon, but not pistols or power weapons)

-Meltagun and Combat Knife (may be swapped for some other hand to hand weapon, but not pistols or power weapons)

I do not want any heavy type weapons as they will be inpratical for this RPG as it will require movement and assault, so heavy weapons would become fundamentally useless.

Also nothing that gives an Inuvernability save may be unless its a shield or the Chaplain's Roserius(spelling??) as we are not that 'high tech.'

Darmort-The powerfist works out, but can you make sure you note that your Apothecary has Terminator Honours?

Everyone else seems to check out. I like the Chaplain Konrad, very different.

11-02-2006, 20:10
Hope ya'll don't mind if I join...

Name: Lytan Kariker
Age: 175
Rank: War Veteran (Regular Veteran by Marine standards)
Equipment: Scoped Bolter, Combat Knife, 2 Frag Grenades
Chapter: The Peacemakers
Company: 1st
Height: 7'5"
Armour: The majority of the armour is a brushed steel color, with black trim around the shoulder pads, black kneepads, and a black Aquila on the chest. Helmet eyes glow icy blue.

History: Kariker is from a feral-turned-industrial world on the Eastern fringes of the Imperium. He grew up in shadow of the Space Marine monastery on the planet, and eventually joined their ranks. Kariker's home world had always been under attack by xenos raiders (which also forced industrialization), so the Peacemakers have always been at war with aliens (a majority being Orks). Kariker was stationed on a nearby moon used to intercept raiders, and a majority of the fighting took place in that region.

Kariker was promoted to War Veteran status after 100 years of service (and being one of three marines from his company left alive from when he was first initiated) and was shipped out to the Cadian sector when the 13th Black Crusade erupted. Shortly after, he was recalled back to his home planet to repel Ork invasion forces.

Hope its not too late for me...

Name: Tiyen Kashuren
Age: 526
Rank: Veteran
Equipment: Boltgun (Held in one hand), Chainsword
Chapter: Gravediggers (Skull, with a Spade and Sword crossed, with the Aquila in background)
Company: 1st
Height: 7'5
Armour colour: Completely black armour, except the aquila breastplate which is a dark white. Both knees are white, with black 'I' on them. The shoulderpad rims are a light brown and the helmet is the same.

Background: Kashuren was born on the world of Taydra. He lived a good life, until an attack from a section of the World Eaters. Kashurens family were among the first to fall. Rage began to boil within him, and he found himself taking up a fallen PDF troopers lasgun and shooting at the World Eaters who were landing in drop pods. As his anger subsided, and the Berserkers began to disembark, he realised that he was in mortal danger and fled. When he reached the city of Tamrini, he found a destroyed chapel to St. Perrin, the one led the conquest of Taydra and her sister worlds, Tamasin and Torrinq. Inside the chapel, he found a dying Space Marine. Kashuren looked upon the demi-god with awe and was started when the Marine told him to pick up the bolter and defend the Chapel from the World Eaters. Kashuren was young at this time, and most others of his age would have fled, but Kashuren was of brave heart and he picked up the Marine's bolter. The gun was immensely heavy in Kashuren's hands, and he struggled to raise the gun when he heard grunts and footsteps outside. He readied himself for the World Eaters. But none came. By the time Kashuren had realised this, the Space Marine had died.

It was twelve years later when a liberation force of the Gravediggers, Ultramarines and the Angels of Redemption Space Marine Chapters came, supported by six full Imperial Guard Regiments including the Cadian 5th, and the Volpone 43rd. When the first of the Gravediggers landed in Tamrini, they immediatly ran to the chapel and braced themselves, as they opened the doors, for walls covered with anti-imperial graffiti, and blasphemous symbols. Yet, when they entered, they found a young man, drenched in blood, and a group of World Eaters and Cultists lying on the floor, dead from bolter wounds. Kashuren had at last been attacked by four World Eaters and sixty Cultists. He had killed all four World Eaters with the boltgun, which was still heavy at the time. As the Cultists closed in, Kashuren had taken the fallen Space Marines combat knife and dived headlong into the Cultist mass. He had been shot six times, stabbed twice, and cut an innumerable amount of times, but he had killed every Cultist and stayed alive to protect the Chapel. The Gravediggers decided that this boy was the model of the Space Marine and he began his long initiation processes.

Two hundred years later, Kashuren was a fully-fledged Marine of the Gravediggers, and a famous warrior. He had fought on many worlds and had taken on pretty much every race in the galaxy. He had clashed with the Necrons, slaughtered Tyranids, duelled with Chaos Lords, matched Tau Firepower, defended outposts from Orkish hordes and many more. He was dubbed 'Slayer of the Xenos', which was a new position within the Gravediggers. It granted no privileges, but Imperial Commanders now knew that if a infestation of invasion of a Xenos species attacked their world, they could call upon Kashuren; who, had, by this time formed a special unit of Xenos Hunters. Although they were not restricted to fighting aliens, that was their preferred enemy.

And now it is a different time, Kashuren has been callen upon another time, but now, he doesn't have his unit...just himself, his wits and his weapons.

I always thought Space Marines were in the range of 7-9 feet tall but then again Black Library books aren't considered real fluff ;).

I see the ages as a little dodgy, but I have no clue as to the life capicity of a Space Marine so I am allowing it. Thats my own weakness.

Also I would like to note that to anyone who holds their Space Marine Chapter as gospel, I will be tampering with their fluff a bit. Just to fluff out my own storyline, just so you know.

When this begins everyone will recieve a PM dictating potential allies or enemies within our own units. Just think the rivalary between Wolves and Angels or being allies like Ultramarines and the Mortifactors etc etc.

It adds a certain spice and plus it adds to the character development and squads ;). Also my Librarian will have a reputation as being a 'radical' just to let you all know before I post him ;)

Necron I was reading your background fluff and to be honest thats too far fetched even for a radical fluff nut like me to stomach.

Grey Knights and their one true law:
-They can never be any corruption within them and cannot be fused with the fury blood. So I'm afraid re-think the chapter and fluff or well, I'm sorry no.

I'll help you out if you do, you very tall person.

Space marines are usually 7 foot tall I suppose some are only 6 foot, and the tallest marine would probably be 9 foot [well, my chapter's led by a 9 foot tall marine, due to a strange reaction to the SM implants].

Why am I the shortest one?

Ra'mac Khets history: Ra'mac Khet was one of the few space marines who had come to ralmat to hold the planet till it was civilized. 25 years later the war started changing everything. he was drafted in to the fury leigonaires because of his military position as it was. after the war he and a handful of others received golden helmets for their valor, heroism,bravery ect... . Ra' mac Khet was awarded the helmet for holding the border for three days with his brothers Ca'mercet and Namo alone. unfortunately namo was killed by a railrifel on patrol the next day . Ra'mac has never trusted a tau since (meaning he puts a round through every tau he meets).

Infiltrating a base is not how Layne does stealth, that's infiltrate-find-the-info stealth, Layne's type of stealth is not to be seen while he blows the place sky high, yo. Layne's badass, and righteous.

Necron, you're ridiculously short, NO marine is that short you crazy crazy person.

P.S: I still dislike everyone else claiming they're taller than me, I'm tall for a space marine! I may have to change my profile so I'm 10 foot just to show you!

Looks good, think I'll join

Name: Atrocles
Age: 133
Rank: Hoplitae (veteran)
Equipment: Bolt pistol, Spear, Frag Grenades
Chapter:Blades of Elysia
Company:
Height: 7'3"
Armour: The chestplate, thighs & shoulder pads are white, with gold helmets, forearms, shoulder pad rims & shins. The pistol casing, kneepads & aquila are red. The helmet is in a greek hoplite style. The chapter symbol is a hoplite helmet, spear & shield.

History: The Blades of Elysia are a Ultramarines successor chapter. The Elysian system lies in the Segmentum Obscurus, between Cadia & Fenris. The chapter's homeworld, Elysia Primus, is a beautiful land of green & blue, much like Terra used to be. The marines of the chapter draw all of their warriors from the prestigious militay academies of Elysia Primus, where many of the greatest military minds of the Imperium teach the ways of war. The Blades of Elysia's warriors are an organised & disciplined war machine, working together in their famous phalanx to defend their realm & destroy their enemies. A commander of the 3rd Company disagreed with the tactics of his brethren & sought to bring his own, more bloodthirsty tactics to his company. Not about to let this upstart destroy the chapter's reputation, the remaining commanders delivered an ultimatum to the rogue, renounce your ways & submit, or die. Knowing he could not possibly take on the rest of the chapter, he firebombed Elysia Primus, & fled, with those loyal to him, to the eye of terror. The rest of the companies fough to extinguish the blaze which stormed the surface, but only managed to save a quarter of the planet from the ashes. From that day forward the Blades of Elysia vowed to hunt down the traitors to the last, & rebuild their ruined world.

History: Taught in the academy of the master Herocles, Atrocles proved a fast learner & a determined warrior.He bested his classmates at every level, an easy candidate for transformation.After fighting in the Blades for 7 decades, Atrocles was promoted to the rank of Hoplitae. As a hoplitae, he was awarded the bronze tip spear & helmet of the chapter's greatest warriors.

I see the ages as a little dodgy, but I have no clue as to the life capicity of a Space Marine so I am allowing it. Thats my own weakness.
They're around 7-9 foot tall... or at least, that's about how big the scale size ones are, and how big they look against Imperial Guardsmen... and on Dawn of War... :p

Average Space Marine age is around 500 years, although Commander Dante of the Blood Angels is over 1000, or he was in the last edition...

They're 7 foot tall on average, not 7-9, Terminators are 9 foot tall-ish not regular marines, marines are 7 foot tall!

marineowar
12-02-2006, 12:42
Yes, 7 feet tall on average. We just happen to be composed of slightly taller than average marines.

Are we going to kick off soon?

Is your height your in-armour height?

vforvenator
12-02-2006, 13:54
I would say 6' - 7' something is average for marine height unarmoured, anything between 7' and 9' while in armour - remember they are still essentially human beings, not giants. Upwards of 400 in age for anything bar chapter master would also be seriously pushing credibilty, in my view, but on consideration I'll up my own character's years by 100, as 41 is probably a little too young, even for a recently ordained Vet.
And I am going by the legitimate game fluff and miniatures' physicalities here, not Bill King or some computer game designer shyte. Is anyone with me?

Darmort
12-02-2006, 15:42
41...? That's Scout Age!!! O.o'

Have you ever seen a Warhammer Scale Warlord (yes, the big one) Titan? They're about that big. That's 7 to 9 foot, depending on the Titan Model.

I compared a Marine against a Guard, it was quite a bit taller. In real-life scale, I'd say about 2-3 foot. ;)
The Dawn of War game was also scaled to the Warhammer models, by the way... and who's Bill King...? Only heard of William King, and I don't have any of his novels, other than the Slayer Series...

*drags back on topic* :p

vforvenator
12-02-2006, 16:13
I meant 41 in planetary/solar years: physical and mental age, and the most obvious reckoning thereof, not warp-distorted years. The way scouts are still 17-20 odd to all intents and purposes, despite being decades in warptime, and carved outta rock.
Soory, back on topic:

-Bolter and Combat Knife (may be swapped for some other hand to hand weapon, but not pistols or power weapons)


what type of hand to hand weapon if we take a bolter ect can we still have chainswords chain axe chain wrench ect... as a close combat weapon:confused:

Lord Setra
12-02-2006, 18:23
Name: Alaton Sacora
Age: 246
Rank: Tech-Marine
Equipment: Servo arm, nanite metal links(think terminator 3 when she goes into arnies brain to fiddle with his programming), bolt pistol
Chapter: Iron Lords
Company: 2nd
Height: 7'1"
Armour: Red armour typical of a tech marine with the left shoulder being silver and black denoting his home chapter.
History: Alaton was originally brought from a death world near the Silate System of planets. The company chaplians found him fighting his way through 3 of the planets deadly stone golums using his spear. They watched as he fought off two only to be struck down by the last one. The chaplains stept in at that point and removed him to be trained as a marine of The Iron Lords Chapter.

Throught out his training he was found to have a thirst for knowledge soaking up all that was given to him. His mentors noticed this and allowed him to explore his thirst. Through this he soaked up knowledge of technology and weapons, beginning to develop skills in repairing and creating. He was allowed access to the ancient dreadnoughts who taught him what they knew and soon he was chosen to acompany the other hopefuls to Mars to become a Techmarine.

While there he was taught many secrets and he changed. No longer did he thirst for knowledge, but instead he became reclusive observing almost from the shadows. He found that this way knowledge found him and this left him with time to aid his chapter.

In the Caros campaign he was assigned to the 2nd Companys vehicles and through out the campaign he worked tirelessley coaxing machine spirits to defend their vehicles and also repairing damage that the vehicles sustained. During one raid Alaton was reparing one of the hallowed land raiders when a stray enemy bullet found his chest destroying one of his hearts.

The apothacarys were determined to save his knowledge and so they used an experimental nanite technolgy that their chapter had ben working on.

This aided in his recovery but using the knowledge he had gained in Mars he learned to control the naniotes to doing his will and found he could link with machinery much easier, quicker and in a way that baffled the other tech marines.

It was these skills that had lead to him being called forward to aid in this mission.

bored, and this looks like fun :p (if Im not too late)

Name: Brother Veteran-Sergeant Saavik

Age: 637

Rank: Veteran Sergeant (or just Veteran if theres too many VS's)

Equipment: Bolter, plasma pistol, 2 personally crafted close combat blades (one is 10" long, the other 12"), both attached to the right and left of either leg

Chapter: Iron Dragons
Company: 2nd

Height: 7'2" {7'6" with armor}

Armour: Black armor, white helmet with that little.. circle thing on the left part of the helmet (looks like a laser-pointer?), right side of face replaced by bionics, right arm completely replaced with heavy bionics

History: Found on a feral world by Imperial Preachers, he was kept under a constant eye for potential initiation into the Adeptus Astartes. After some time, Saavik was given the chance to prove his worthiness, and was granted a chance at initiation. During the trials, however, things went wrong. During a trial of hand-to-hand, Saavik killed three other promising recruits with his bare hands. This, however, later proved to be of use. It was determined that Saavik suffers from repeated jolts of anger, flashbacks, if you will, of heretics attacking his homeworld. The Adeptus Astartes found this to be of use, and over the course of Saaviks military service he has the bionic limbs to prove that he is no stranger to conflict. Veteran Saavik can be seen on the battlefield charging head on into close combat with the enemy, with complete disregard for his own safety and health. Some Space Marine Captains have found Saavik to be a fool, full of stubbornness and blind pride, while other Captains owe their very lives to his blind pride-filled tactics.

Name: Vokoun Chikatu
Age: 78
Height:7'1
Position: Regular tactical marine sergeant.
Weapons: Bolter and chainsword. (Take the fight to them trait)
Chapter: The Silver Crosses
Colors: Bone color shoulder pads and face part. Silver antennae/cords on the helmet. halfway between Azure/Jade. Silver for cords and things. Black and yellow caution on chainsword and bolt pistol. The rest is silver. The rest of them is orange/red. (more towards orange)
Symbol: A silver cross with the eye color in the center orange making a criss cross in the center.
Tabard: Comes down to his knees from his belt and up under his marking on his stomach and belt. Over his shoulders and on the back. His chapter symbol on the center and inscriptions in either silver or black or Azure/JAde...haven't decided.
History: Vokoun is known for fighting to the end and insipiring his squad to unbelievable skill levels of fighting. Leading his squad to victory and farther into purging whatever attacks their banished chapter on their planet Jeruesalam.
(Their chapter is banished for supposedly turning to chaos with the Iron warriors. Although they were working with them they did not turn with them and had no knowledge of the heretic plans.)
That took a while but ya.

Necron & Konrad: Stop acting like children. I don't want to play this game with a pair of 8 year olds.

Necron - Space marines only recruit from the finest genetic stock of the Human race. Midgets would barely even be considered human, and certainly wouldn't be classed as good recruiting material.

Konrad - You could have found a better way of communicating this other than "Nitwit"

Both - Please try to be civil to each other so we can all enjoy this RPG.


EDIT: Slaz, could you please reply to the PM I sent you. It'd be a big help.

fine ill change my height

Darmort
14-02-2006, 21:35
The point is that Marines are the best of the best. You could have five thousand people wanting to be a Marine, and only ONE could be chosen for that. A 'midget' isn't exactly considered to be the genetically 'perfect' that Marine template is based on. The same happens to those that have broken teeth, or seem to have an uncommon amount of headaches. They just don't have the genetics that makes a man into a Marine.

Name: Hadrian Augustus
Age:23
Rank: Scout
Equipment: bolt pistol, sniper rifle(carried in component form, assembled when
Hadrian thinks he can set up for a few shots), Frag grenades, a spare meltabomb or two, and a personal combat knife stamped with his name on the blade, forged for him by the city-state smithy to celebrate his acceptance to the ranks of the 'Celestial Legions'. Identical to astartes pattern combat knife save for a guthook on the reverse of the blade and the
name engraved. This warknife is Hadrian's pride and joy, having been put to superb use in a raid on a Tau ship.
Chapter: Doom Sentinals
Company: 10th
Height: 7'
Armour:Scout armor, camo capes of various descriptions for use in various battlezones, ghillie suit for the hunting of xeno snipers.

Backround: Hailing from a classical-roman era ferral world, Hadrian always wanted to prove himself in the eyes of his four brothers, soldiers of the Sentinal Legion. The Sentinal Legions were reknowned for constantly besting
alien raiders with more advanced technology.

Hadrian's chance to prove his worth was handed to him at the age of 10 in a massed raid by the dark eldar. Imperial agents estimate a small cabal struck in full force, upward of ten thousand warrios strong. The legions fought well, but the raiders did not run this time. The battle raged all day, the legions solidly holding on against the horrors the aliens inflicted.

The hated aliens sent scouts to disrupt the legion's trebuchet batteries. Hadrian was watching a crew load and fire. As he watched, a pair of eldar
attacked them. The crew drew blades and tried to fight back, but they were killed, along with one of their foes. Not hesitating for a second, Hadrian hefted a javlin and threw, impaling the mandrake. Then, by hitching a neaby farm beast to the rope, he finished preparing the trebuchet to fire.
He knew nothing about ranging, so he set it to fire at maximum range and let fly.

The result of his shot was nothing less than the decapitation of the eldar beast, as his shot landed on the Archon's raider before it could lift off to avoid the shot. Without leadership, the eldar crumbled before the legion's superior disipline. Hadrian caught a fleeing eldar warrior, and took him prisoner.
Legion soldiers found him standing over a hog tied dark eldar by the artilery nest, and the trebuchet set to maximum range.

At day's end, the Eldar had been routed. The legion marched home in triumph.
Hadrain was allowed to march in place of his slain brothers, leading the chained dark eldar captive as spoils of war. The senate heaped glory on him for his courage, several centurion argued for the right to train him, and
several women asked to marry him. The various praises and requests for
Hadrian were silence when Chaplain Quintus took the senate floor.
They boy was to be inducted into the Star Legion, he proclaimed.
The city smith produced a personal combat blade for Hadrian, to be given to him upon completion of his training. A decade later, it was given to him as he entered the scout company.

So, at aged ten, you saw a group of men being savagely killed and beaten, somehow didn't cry and squeal your butt off, killed a mandrake by throwing a javelin through him [and you were like, 4 foot tall? So the javelin was like 3 foot long? And it got through a MANDRAKE's armour?] and then loaded and fired a trebuchet which destroyed a Dark Eldar Raider which, although they are famed for speed [and trebuchets aren't], couldn't move out of the way fast enough of a big rock which was set to fire in a random direction at max range by a ten year old.

You, a mere untrained unarmed and unarmoured ten year old human, then managed to capture a rampaging powerful trained Dark Eldar warrior who was armed with knives and a gun and armoured with flexible armour which could easily absorb a shot from a lasrifle?!

AND THEN many powerful men demanded to train you and loads of women wanted to MARRY YOU! And then you get taken to train for the local space marine chapter despite being underage!?!

I'm sorry, that bests StealthandFear's story where he kills 60 cultists. At least he was shot, stabbed and cut.

In fact, this is even less believable than Necron claiming he's 5 foot 3!

i was a bit sceptical about the idea of a 10yr old taking out an eldar warrior who has been trained for millenia and killing a mandrake with a javelin, without being seen by the mandrake who would have probably gone for the kid first as it is dark eldar afterall

Are you the GM? If not, then I am not bound to offer justification to you.:eyebrows: However, the points you glossed over pertain to my character. TWO mandrakes attacked that particular machine. The crew engaged them in a full on fight before sucumbing. Seeing this, the boy, already keen to be a soldier, grabbed a weapon and attacked the surviving mandrake. The mandrake had his pants down so to speak, still enjoying his kills. The boy, raised by a Rome type society, was taught to hate and to kill from birth. He saw a foe, and acted on what every one of his elders had been hitting him over the head with since birth.

The trebuchet in question was loaded when the crew was attacked. Hadrian simply set the aiming gizmo to full, then hooked up a cow to pull the trebuchet to firing position. Having watched a crew do that, he figured it out.

The shot itself was a one in a million 'hail Mary', no question. But that's why the astartes took him. Duh. :eyebrows: Or don't recruits have to prove themselves somehow? Does it bother you my character proved himself astartes material like the codex demands? Not to mention a raider on the ground, with the archon and retinue milling about is not as swift as an airborne one. A stationary target with terrible bad fourtune to be hit by
a large rock. You don't like it, tough luck.

As I clearly posted, the claims on Hadrian at battle's end were made by


several centurions argued for the right to train him, and
several women asked to marry him.

A handful of nobles noticed his perfomance and made claims. The astartes overruled them and took him for training. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how marines get recruits. Youths who prove themselves to be of extrordinary mettle are selected. Sorry if you can't understand that.:rolleyes:

But then you'd have a hard time reading the whole post as it is.

EDIT:As a footnote- Underage!? Read your codex, ye of little brains.
Agverage age of induction is ten. Minimum is 8, max is 14 in most chapters.
Why don't you learn the material before you start criticizing other people's characters? Why don't we take a look a you? 11th veteran company? 'almost failed recruits?' Nearly wiped out but have enough men to go past the codex ten companies? Laughable. No way that can fly. Make a new character, that won't work.:rolleyes:

Ha! I don't think you'll have to PM rival characters, seems some have already found one.

@ Tanith Ghost: I too thought you're characters story was a little OTT at first, but now I think, what in W40K isn't OTT? I don't think you needed to rip into TheSonOfAbbadon as much as you did, you'll only succeed in starting a flame war.

@ TheSonOfAbbadon: Yes Tanith Ghost's story seems a little exaggerated, but then when you think about it the base SM fluff is to blame. If marine recruits must be taken at 10, then how could they possibly prove themselves? It would make a little more sense if marines were recruited in their late teens, not a child, but not fully a man. Again, you didn't need to be attack Tanith Ghost's story so much, a polite criticism goes much further.

So let's all just take a step back & chill out before the GM has to pull the plug, OK?

Yo, Im back etc, slazzy poo I want in k?!

Thinking 13th company dude, even though you said you want home grown ones, at least I think you did.. when you said "You are all from 'Home Grown Chapters,' so that means I want variation and not Codex Chapters, but they are welcome, but not recomended." I read it as you saying you'd prefer home grown, but they are still welcome though not recomended. Since this is going to be on a world with fallen (dark angels) and at the time when 13th co went to the eye of terror the dark angels still had the black armour that the fallen still use, you can see where im going with this if you know anything about the background of the 2 chapters, so ill leave it at this, be quite cool from a narrative rpg point of view.

Name: Kjell
Age: 10,082 Imperial Calander Though in actual years he is only 143
Height: 7' 3"/7' 7"
Rank: Grey Slayer Wolf Guard
Chapter: Space Wolves, 13th Great Company
Armed with: Bolter (MkII Straight Mag), Chainsword, Frag and Krak Gernades
Equipment: Wolf Pelt, Wolf Tail Talisman and a Fenrisian Wolf
Skills: Acute senses, Counter charge, No matter the odds, Scout, Move through cover.

Appearance: Pre heresy armour, although it is hard to tell, it has been highly adapted with some parts scavenged from fallen brothers and some fallen enemys, the armour for the most part is a Dark Grey in colour although some of the more elaborate parts show a deep blue and gold colour underneath. The majority is still what the original armour was though, the right lower leg and right forearm and Right shoulder guard have been scavenged to replace unsalvagable parts. Left Shoulder guard is black with a red wolf howling before a white cresent moon, Right Shoulder guard is a highly decorated pad with a golden rim and a wolfs paw depicted on it in red. The breat plate has a runing wolf depicted on it in gold. The back pack is what really stands apart, instead of the conventional vents there is instead two wolf heads. There are numerous wolf pelts about him, a very dark pelt is draped across his back, with a small part on his right shoulder guard. While he does carry a helmet, a very ornate helmet with what looks like a wolf tail coming out of the top, though he hardly ever wears it he does carry it on his belt.

Kjell is pale, the horrors of the eye of terror have had an effect on him, his eyes seem far darker and more troubled than many will have seen before. His voice is deep and speaks with the wisdom of the oldest Long Fangs. While he carries the curse of the wulfen it is not nearly as manifest as it is for others of his company, infact the only signs of the curse is the extra fur about his face, and the ferocity with which he fights in combat.

(Im taking some poetic license here, since the 13th company have returned to the imperium and rejoined with the space wolves it is natural to assume they may have adopted the Space Wolves new colours, though in my opinion I dont think they would, since in their minds they are the way the primarch intended them to be. Marines are also very loyal to the spirit of their armour, so though modified they would replace the main parts of it.)

Background: At the time when the 13th company were sent after the Thousand Sons the Space Wolves were far more feral than they are at present, the 13th Great Company especially, the wulfen brothers all had an affinity with the natural creatures on fenris and many of the Wolf Brothers underwent the Lone Hunt and had packs of wolves that often accompnied them to battle. This is where the Wolf Pelt he wears is from, the Wolf that accompanys him is one of the last decendants of the pack that he had when they entered the eye of terror. Geki, his fenrisian wolf is a dark grey in colour, though the eye of terror had some bad effects on many of the other wolves Geki seems to have gotten off better than most.

While in the eye of terror it was natural that some of their weapons would start to malfunction and become damaged as their armour has. It was this that led Kjell to aquire this bolter, after one encounter with the forces of the cyclops he scavenged a bolter from one of the treachorus foe, though since returning to the Imperium they have been met with suspicion for using the weapons of the enemy against them the Inquisition has remained powerless to object, for as soon as they returned the Space Wolves welcomed them back and try and as much as the Inquisition may like they know better than to press the matter. Thus it is that he still carries the weapon of the enemy, though of course he doesnt view it as such, this weapon has served him for over 3,000 years, far longer than any of the current imperial weapons could hope too, it is after all a remnant from the time of the Heresy when Russ himself still walked.

In the 10,000 years that have passed since Russ first sent the 13th Great Company after the Thousand Sons, the company has undergone numerous changes, most notably is the companys break down into smaller warbands, this was decided as the most efficent means to continue their mission, though after time it seemed that this was going to be near impossible. It was at this time that the 13th Crusade attack the Cadian gate, seeing this the Wolf Lord of Kjell's Warband along with numerous other warbands set off in pursuit.

Though in experience and years Kjell as with most of the other memebers of the warbands he could easily have made the rank of Wolf Guard and joined his Lords Retinue, this was not possible, instead he commands a pack of Grey Slayers.


(Poetic Liscence, im not sure what exactly happened when they returned to the imperium, infact noone is and wont be until the Space Wolf Codex is redone.)

Its a wolf pelt..

So of course, it can deflect bolter fire, and it give me a 2+ invulnerable and means I cant be instant deathed and means I can run head long at tanks and kill them without taking a scratch.

(Its just a wolf pelt, all it does rules wise in game is allow +1 attack when you counter charge)

By the way, If any of you guys are on msn add me, kroqgar@hotmail.com (yea, original)

Are you the GM? If not, then I am not bound to offer justification to you. However, the points you glossed over pertain to my character. TWO mandrakes attacked that particular machine. The crew engaged them in a full on fight before sucumbing. Seeing this, the boy, already keen to be a soldier, grabbed a weapon and attacked the surviving mandrake. The mandrake had his pants down so to speak, still enjoying his kills. The boy, raised by a Rome type society, was taught to hate and to kill from birth. He saw a foe, and acted on what every one of his elders had been hitting him over the head with since birth.

Mandrakes are also taught to kill for MILLENIA, they're considerably faster than a ten year old. They also have this thing called ARMOUR, meaning a javelin wouldn't do schnap. Also, a ten year old, no matter how well trained, wouldn't be able to throw the javelin 2 yards.


The trebuchet in question was loaded when the crew was attacked. Hadrian simply set the aiming gizmo to full, then hooked up a cow to pull the trebuchet to firing position. Having watched a crew do that, he figured it out.

Ok, that I can kinda live with.


The shot itself was a one in a million 'hail Mary', no question. But that's why the astartes took him. Duh. :eyebrows: Or don't recruits have to prove themselves somehow? Does it bother you my character proved himself astartes material like the codex demands? Not to mention a raider on the ground, with the archon and retinue milling about is not as swift as an airborne one. A stationary target with terrible bad fourtune to be hit by
a large rock. You don't like it, tough luck.

Stationary? Hold on, the Dark Eldar were ATTACKING, they would only stop to let people on or off. A large rock would take quite a while to travel all the way to the very edge of it's range, and Dark Eldar raiders can easily take off and then fly away at about 80mph.


A handful of nobles noticed his perfomance and made claims. The astartes overruled them and took him for training. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how marines get recruits.

I'm not disputing that.


Youths who prove themselves to be of extrordinary mettle are selected. Sorry if you can't understand that.:rolleyes:

Ok, now it's getting abusive.


But then you'd have a hard time reading the whole post as it is.

Spin on it.


EDIT:As a footnote- Underage!? Read your codex, ye of little brains.

If I had a little brain, which I don't, at least I would use it, unlike you.


Agverage age of induction is ten. Minimum is 8, max is 14 in most chapters.

...Ok, where in the codex does it say this? [It's not that I can't find it, I'm just lazy].


Why don't you learn the material before you start criticizing other people's characters? Why don't we take a look a you? 11th veteran company?

11th SPECIAL OPERATIONS company.


'almost failed recruits?'

JUST failed recruits.


Nearly wiped out but have enough men to go past the codex ten companies?

Nearly wiped out? Since when? The Sons of Pain lost around 50-70 marines at the Seige of Fort Gray, and that was a good century and a half, maybe two centuries ago. The Sons of Pain recruit from their homeworld, the industrial world further out into the system, but they also get very good recruits from the tribes on Kraag, the [almost] dead world. They made the numbers back easily[although each and every marine was given a proper cremation and their names were carved onto the great Arch of War which goes over the main road going into the feilds of Thayis [the capital of their homeplanet] where the marines' ashes were scattered to help the plants grow, so that even in death, they serve their homeworld], and the 11th SO company is only around 200 men, only around 40 are actual full marines, only about 10 or 20 of them have power armour, the rest have scout armour.


Laughable. No way that can fly. Make a new character, that won't work.:rolleyes:

Go !*:skull:! yourself. Just because the Sons Of Pain have a weird and styalised chapter structure doesn't mean they go against any background.


EDIT:

k so what does ridicule mean...

Your logic is really flawed.. you have no room because you want the "squads" to be even, yet tanith can ask to be let in and make them uneven if Thane doesnt post? im confused.. Or could this be somthing else, you dont like my character? It doesnt fit? Your still sore about somthing thats happened? what?

13 so far, 14 with Thane, 15 with tanith, so thats uneven. Unless Thane doesnt post, but if he does Tanith is still allowed if people agree? Biased? Can I not ask or put it to a vote ;)

Also, I didnt see you say anywhere that the rpg was full, nor did you say how many people you were looking for. You made a post listing the people so far, but at no point said it was full.

after these two have dropped out, mind if i join slaz?

TheSonOfAbbadon
23-02-2006, 12:51
So we have, 11 players now?

Also, what does it matter whether the squads are even or not.

Oh, and StealthandFear, since my chapter is meant to dislike your chapter [according to Slaz] I was trying to think of a reason, and so far four reasons present themselves:

1. Your chapter has quick and painless deaths for traitors, xenos and prisoners. My chapter is renowned and feared for their punishments, whipping to death [with some medical help so that the whipping takes at least half a day] is a very common and low form of execution within my chapter, this would be for something as little as deliberately getting in the way of a space marine or profaning the Emperor or one of his warriors [even veteran guardsmen].

2. Your chapter doesn't have as big and spectacular memorials for dead marines. My chapter has an arch at least the height of the eiffel tower and it's barely thinner than it's height, on it are engraved the names of every single dead guardsman and marine [the marine names are on the ceiling of the arch, and are twice as big as guardsman names]. The cremations for marines are huge affairs, sometimes with the entire company turning up to remember the dead hero.

3. Your chapter runs from battle. My chapter would either run into battle, or use stealthy underhand ploys to win a fight, as long as we win and show no cowardice then it's ok. People have been known to be imprisoned for calling certain military maneuvers that the marines' have done 'Running from the fight', the marines prefer the phrase 'Tactical retreat'. Marines, when guarding somewhere, always have at least one marine standing at each door and strategic point in the building, with chains holding them to the door. This is usually the first company and veterans that are put on 'Chain duty' in honour of one of the chapter's heros, who chained himself to the doors of a fort, allowing the marines to regroup and win the siege.

4. Your chapter disrespects loyal guardsmen and humans. Although my chapter's veterans [and everyone higher in the chapter] have the power to execute people on the spot for something as little as 'Graek the Emperor!' [Graek being a swear word] we also respect humans as the people we once were, before the marines we made 'perfect'. A marine who executes a loyal, innocent civillian or guardsman is usually demoted and beaten a bit, or made to wear armour with little spikes inside.

Does your chapter do any of the above [or something like the above]?

Xavier
23-02-2006, 13:29
I would have thought more players the better, that way if some drop out through the course of it the rpg wouldnt suffer greatly, but if that means uneven squad sizes then heaven forbid

Thane McHammer
23-02-2006, 15:52
Well, in-fighting such as what's going on is a bit of a turn off, for me, personally. But at the same time, I couldn't get into the feel for the RP, so I figured I had best drop out.

Enjoy!

name:Vheissu Potemkin
age: 686
rank: veteran
equipment Bolter
chapter: Knights Apocalypse
company:1st
height: 8'9"
armour: Black Armour Blue Trim
history: Vheissu Potemkin is a mystery in himself, mentions of his exploits date as far back as M36, yet the Knights Apocalypse was not founded until M41. 483, add to the fact that he claims to be just under 700 years old. His initiation into the chapter is completely unknown, even the chapter holds no records of him, his first reference in the chapters history is during the Exitus Purge on the eastern front, as he led a squad of termintors into the middle of a hive. It is unsure how or why his history has gone missing, but whatever the reason, everytime he has been questioned about it, Vheissu refuses to give any clue to it. It is documented though that at one stage in his career he was offered the chance to lead the 7th company, but was later demoted for his tactics used.

28-02-2006, 13:51
Though I'm nolonger in this one...

What's the point of arguing over height? Seeing as how 7' is the AVERAGE height, what's wrong with having marines taller or shorter than that? I'm sure that they all react in some ways differently to the initiation implants, and so, while they get super strength and uber bones, they might grow more than usual or stay the same height. Are you all really that bored with Slaz gone that you've gotta squabble?

Then I realise I'm arguing about what's the point of arguing, and wonder why I bother....

TheSonOfAbbadon
28-02-2006, 14:20
7' is the average height, so Space marines are from 6-8', 8'9" is fething ludicrious.

Only a small number of Chapters with Geneseed mutations/defects reach anywhere near 9+ foot.

TheSonOfAbbadon
28-02-2006, 17:04
My chapter's Chapter master was 7' 5" before the grow-big [forget the name] implant, and he had a violent reaction to it and it had to be controlled with certain chemicals, he had already grown to 8' 7". With his armour he's 9', 11' with big headress. He's considered by the chapter to be the tallest living marine [although he may not be].

I can't change my chapter background, if I do, all my marines are at least 9' tall and my chapter master is 14' tall out of armour, which is crazy.
