This will be my last 40k roleplay for quite some time, but it will also be one that I intend to keep rolling for as long as possible - so I will be looking for capable co-GMs, if anyone's interested!

As the title states, I'm going back to basics, in pretty much every way; let me give a couple of examples.

  • The regiment we shall be portraying is going to be as 'basic' as possible - a regiment of infantry grunts raised from a Hive World (The First Vosmarth Regulars), specialising in nothing but also being trained to be flexible (might pick up a specialisation further in though, who knows?), equipped (at least in the beginning), in the 'Cadian style' of armour, weapons and so on. Using these - and the reason that this is an 18+ RP - is that it will not be pretty. We all know 40k is so far out as Hell, but with a small group of willing writers I hope to bring it into sharp focus in a more realistic manner (yeah...I know.).
  • I'm abolishing Character Sheets for this RP. but what this means is that I - should this RP even take off - would like posts of good quality, which is also the reason this RP is in the Advanced section. It'll be more in the vein of traditional narrative I.E. We find out about the characters and so on through the writing of the player.
  • Things will change, our characters starting out as the denizens of a Hive (or outside the Hive), before progressing through to whatever fate eventually awaits them. They will obviously not be the same by the end, and this is something that makes me wish to make this RP a 'success', or at least keep it going long enough to complete an arc or two or three.
  • We'll be part of a platoon, so specialists will be welcome. Flamer, vox-operator, demolitions expert, medic and the like. All flavours here.


That's it really.

I'm looking for up to 6-8 - although a smaller number would be fine - to fight for the God-Emperor, bring your writing brain, your dedication, and your love for the poor squishy humans of the 40k setting and that's about all you need.

I'm hoping we have at least a couple of folks not too drained of 40k yet, and trusting enough of me (yes...I know), to step into the breach with me on this endeavour; if so, please step forth and make yourself known.

As always, any questions are more than welcome.

You're all folks that have joined my 'Guard' RPs in the past, so if you're interested - and have the time for a prolonged slog - then please feel free to hollah over here. If not interested, or you do not have the time, then please feel free to just skip on by and ignore this.

Prolonged slogs are kinda my thing now. I still have some things I owe other people in terms of responses, but I'll see if I have time for this.

@JbcoolWhile I very much like longer lasting RPs I'm feeling a little burnout from other guard RP on the site, although if you lose a player down the line and need a replacement feel free to ping me.

@Katthaj As they said in ~ Halo: Omen ~ (yes, I do 'background checks' of sorts), I'll trust that your IC skills are up-to-snuff. If that's true, then we'll be all good.

That being said, and I'm not trying to be an arse, but would you be able to send me a 'writing sample' via Private Messaging - just something in-character, can be any setting or genre etc - for me to take a look at?

This is the Advanced section after all and, although I'm not elitist (I'd like to think), there's a reason I put this RP here.

@Katthaj No problemo, I look forward to it.

@tech Knew I missed someone! Yup, another body would be appreciated; lives are the Emperors currency after all.

@FrostedCaramel I'm going to take a look at everyone, then get an IC thread up tomorrow or Thursday. So there's still room, in short.

I can vouch for Frost, though I do know his work can keep him busy for some time.
