The Emperor's Penguin - December 2, 2009 11:44 AM (GMT)
I'm guessing a simple character sheet for a simple roleplay would suffice. No lengthy backgrounds then. :P
Name: Authan Ferrickson
General Appearance & Demeanour: Authan is of average height and the build found common amongst the young men of most Guard regiments after years of training and combat. He has the black hair common amongst Valhallans but the uncommon blue eyes (his mother's side). He's almost always sporting a mischievous little grin, even in the heat of combat, and loves nothing better than to be able to kill a few dozen Orks when he gets the chance. Friendly to a fault, he tends to be the opposite of most people's stereotype of grim iceworlders.
Equipment: Standard-issue lasgun, combat knife, flak armour and cold weather gear.
Shiva - December 2, 2009 03:45 PM (GMT)
Name: Corpsman Alora Tamien
Hair: Such a light blond it looks white, long, normally in a long braid down her back
General appearance & demeanor: Tall and curvy with an athletic build, Alora is rather quiet and somewhat standoffish. Quite capable in a firefight or hand to hand combat, she prides herself in being a capable fighter for the Emperor's glory.
Weapons: Twin Laspistols, combat knife, advanced med pack, cold weather gear

Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 05:12 PM (GMT)

Shiva - December 17, 2009 05:36 PM (GMT)
I'm good either way.....already got a new character profile ready to go :)
Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 07:51 PM (GMT)

Shiva - December 17, 2009 08:42 PM (GMT)
New Character :)
Name: Kori Strahan
Hair: Dirty blond, shoulder length, pulled back in two low pig-tails
Eyes: sea green
General appearance and demeanor: Kori likes to think of herself as an average trooper, even though as a female member of the Steel Legion she's anything but. Strong for her size with quick reflexes and an athletic but slender build that remains mostly unnoticable under her standard issue yellow greatcoat, she prides herself as an excellent shot and is surprisingly good at holding her own in hand to hand combat. She's attractive and sweet natured but intense in battle - showing little fear and even in the most dire of circumstances.
Weapons: Lasgun, close combat weapon (sword), standard issue Steel Legion yellow greatcoat, boots, gloves, helmet and gasmask (although she prefers to not wear the gasmask unless absolutely necessary).
Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 08:51 PM (GMT)
Sergeant Kori Strahan if youd like would give you this.
Chimera 995, Squad Two. Veterans, two plasmaguns, a flamer, and a missle launcher
Or Sergeant Kori Strahan, Veteran and a member of the command staff. or you could stick as a general rank and file
DoLhades - December 17, 2009 09:10 PM (GMT)

DoLhades - December 17, 2009 09:18 PM (GMT)
Name: Corporal "Pinner" Shahker (Called Pinner as he won't stop firing)
Height/Weight: 6"4 / 195 lbs
Hair/Eyes: Blue eyes, flattened brown hair because he is too busy with Kaskrin armour
General Appearance: Is rumoured to have a scarred face from a fight against a chaos lord, but that's all they know, always wears carapace armour to battle, even if he was offered power armour
Background: Was a Cadian but was transferred to the steel legion along with some of his comrades due to their recent war on armageddon, is being sent back to Cadia in 16 weeks, deemed "Cannot use Armagedon tactics" as is the rest of the squad and will soon be sent back
Weapons/Gear: Hellgun, Carapace armour, hellpistol (stuck on rapid fire, no long shots with this!) Power sword and a serrated combat knife (For the REAL short range)
Sergeant: McVain (Tends to go on a massive rage with his power sword and will kill anything in sight, even his own men!)
Private: Heinz Straken (Likes long range fighting and is very beleiving in the emporer)
Private: Helford (Tends to use his two hellpistols alot as he likes short range)
Private 1st class: Dirch (Why wouldn't they hire him, he's a pyromaniac!)
Lord Commissar: Von Braun (Keeps the men in order)
Private: Skurden (Likes sniping)
Private 1st Class: Rulk (Very strong and carries a combat shotgun and sniper to provide sniper support, Private Skurden tends to steal his sniper)
Private: Aelsar (Carries a hammer into battle that he "Found" but he cannot power it as he lacks the equipment so he uses it as a combat weapon, more powerful than a knife but weaker than a power sword but means he has to carry a hellpistol)
Private: "Vox" Halsar (Has the newest version of the Kaskrin medium range vox, hense the nickname)
Private: "Launcha" Serven (Carries a greande launcher and is very trigger happy, runs out of ammo in under a minute... when he is at his best)
All carry Hellguns and autoSMGs (when they lose ammunition for hellguns)
Sergeant carries a power sword as well (The corporal isn't actually meant to have one but has been given it due to the saving of a commissar)
Dirch carries flamer and carries a serrated sword with a very weak powering hint (it rarely lasts an hour before it needs resupplying) to it rather than the standard knife due to close combat (almost no difference) and a small bayonet, the sergeant and corporal can choose to power them but it would take the power out of the power swords
Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 09:23 PM (GMT)
mmk it sgood, but I would request you might change a few things. If you want to be the leader of the squad then why not Be the sergeant? lol
also, in the codex, only the sergeant can have a power weapon...
lastly I need you limit your weapons a little, As much as Id love to see how he would play out like that it sadly wouldnt be true to the fluff of warhammer... No offence mate.
I mean, Just lose one of the hellpistols perhaps? or take both pistols and lose the rifle?
DoLhades - December 17, 2009 09:30 PM (GMT)
Edited to explain and balance
The Emperor's Penguin - December 17, 2009 09:33 PM (GMT)
Name: Jorkull Estley
Hair: Dark brown
General appearance and demeanor: Having fought in the Third War for Armageddon, Marius considers himself somewhat of a veteran trooper and feels privileged to have played his part in the defence of his homeworld against the Ork hordes. As with other members of the Steel Legion he is a stoic warrior and generally reserved though he and his loader, Marius, take a great joy in reducing the war machines of the Emperor's enemies to little more than burning wrecks.
Weapons: Man-portable missile launcher, lasgun carbine, Steel Legion uniform, mask and armour.
Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 09:35 PM (GMT)
thank you DoLhades, and im sorry, i dont mean to sound rude in saying that. Looks good to me, you and your fellow kasrikans will be in the fourth chimera, are you sure you dont want to be in command of the squad? if you do just promote yourself to Warrent officer
EP if youd like you can be with the command squad or with sers potential squad or one of the other ones, let me know.
DoLhades - December 17, 2009 09:40 PM (GMT)
Err if there was anything I would like to use it would be the rest of my squad if I can add them to my list
Oh and I edited them to show a bit of the other backgrounds and I will change to corporal but I will not be the sergeant as I think it will be more interested (Note the fact that I took these off my story I wrote so technically I should have an attached lord commissar and another 5 equipped in a valkyrie but we can change it from the valkyrie but I will add the rest of my squad and L commissar)
The Emperor's Penguin - December 17, 2009 09:45 PM (GMT)
I don't mind where I end up, Jacob, so long as there's space for me and an npc. Although it would be good if I'm in a position to interact with other characters.
DoLhades - December 17, 2009 09:52 PM (GMT)
Is the list ok?
Note the fact they are veterans (As they ALL appear in my fluff or are appering) and most are years old
Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 09:57 PM (GMT)
well, we havent a need of the lord commissar this time around, so lets just say hes back at hq for now, otherwise it looks ok
DoLhades - December 17, 2009 09:58 PM (GMT)
He could be injured and could only speak through vox?
(But if anyone attacks hospital he's in)
Shiva - December 17, 2009 10:01 PM (GMT)
Ok...just to clarify...gonna take the upgrade to Sergeant and stick with the command squad. Not much has changed but here it is again just for good measure. If anything's screwed up, Jacobus, just let me know! :)
Name: Sergeant Kori Strahan
Hair: Dirty blond, shoulder length, pulled back in two low pig-tails
Eyes: sea green
General appearance and demeanor: Kori likes to think of herself as an average trooper, even though as a female member of the Steel Legion she's anything but. Strong for her size with quick reflexes and an athletic but slender build that remains mostly unnoticable under her standard issue yellow greatcoat, she prides herself as an excellent shot and is surprisingly good at holding her own in hand to hand combat. She's attractive and sweet natured but intense in battle - showing little fear in even the most dire of circumstances.
Weapons: Lasgun, Power sword, standard issue Steel Legion yellow greatcoat, boots, gloves, helmet and gasmask (although she prefers to not wear the gasmask unless absolutely necessary).
Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 10:07 PM (GMT)
chainsword or other close combat weapon, noone but officers, kasrikan sergeants, and others like commissars have power weapons, sorry
DoLhades - December 17, 2009 10:11 PM (GMT)
they can but it is usually through loyalty

Gotcha! All fixed! :)
Lieutenant Havenborn - December 17, 2009 10:23 PM (GMT)
Like Jacobus said, one or the other not both.
Shiva - December 17, 2009 10:32 PM (GMT)
|QUOTE (Lieutenant Havenborn @ Dec 17 2009, 05:23 PM)|
|Like Jacobus said, one or the other not both.|
:unsure: Um.....I'm confused. I thought that's what I fixed. I went from a power weapon to a close combat weapon - a plain sword. That's ok, right??
Lieutenant Havenborn - December 17, 2009 10:35 PM (GMT)
I figured you were fine, a Sergeant is allowed a power weapon (if memory serves correctly), I thought that Jacobus was talking to DoLhades.
The Emperor's Penguin - December 17, 2009 10:40 PM (GMT)
Checking up in the latest Guard codex it does seem that Sergeants can have power weapons, just so you know.
Lieutenant Havenborn - December 17, 2009 10:41 PM (GMT)
I just checked with a friend and he said that Sergeants can carry a PW.
Shiva - December 17, 2009 10:43 PM (GMT)
Thanks for the clarification EP! I was getting more confused by the minute! :P Sorry guys...I don't normally play Guard...I'm a Sisters/Grey Knights player.
That being the case I'll go back to my original plan of a Power Sword and call it good - unless Jacob objects, of course. ^_^
The Emperor's Penguin - December 17, 2009 10:46 PM (GMT)
I'm getting the feeling there is much more planning and bickering over this one than the main thread lol :P
Lieutenant Havenborn - December 17, 2009 10:47 PM (GMT)
Well he gave me and you (Shiva) temporary moderation of the game so I'm ok with it.
Shiva - December 17, 2009 10:51 PM (GMT)
Me too...considering I'm one of the ones causing all the trouble :P
Lieutenant Havenborn - December 17, 2009 10:59 PM (GMT)
What's funny is that the OOC is likely going to have more pages than the actual RP thread lol.
Shiva - December 17, 2009 11:03 PM (GMT)
That's true if we keep this up! LMAO!! :lol:
Ok...I'm gonna try and behave like a proper Mod should now :P
The Emperor's Penguin - December 17, 2009 11:04 PM (GMT)
Yes Shiva, behave! You're supposed to be setting a good example for the rabble. :P
Lord Jacobus - December 17, 2009 11:46 PM (GMT)
well... most ooc's tend to have more pages then their role play threads as iv noticed lol, and ya shiva, power sword is ok then, twas my mistake.. im sadly still running with the Old guard codex, ah well, cheario
