Congratulations shas'saal, you and your comrades are a step away from completing your training, partaking of the ta'lissera and becoming bound as a fire team.

In this glorious age of the Fifth Sphere of Expansion the Empire has come under pressure from adversaries that would see our ruin, yet we are strong, and together with our confederates and allies we shall see ourselves grow ever stronger as the future grows nearer.

Our leaders in the Ethereal Council thank you, and bid you great fortune, for the Greater Good!

OOC:

After the decimation of both the Great War of Confederation, and the disaster of the Fourth Sphere, the T'au are forced to mobilize themselves and their forces - the Fire Caste in particular - in order both secure and indeed expand the borders in the name of the Tau'va.

In this roleplay you shall be taking the place of part of a Fire Warrior team that specialises as a breacher team, fresh out of a Vior'la based training academy (we'll kick everything off with a wee ta'lissera) and being set up to take the fight to the enemies of the Empire.

Much like Ollum's roleplay here we'll be taking the process through various arcs and having various 'down time' between them.

While it is likely, as much from constant propaganda and upbringing as anything else, that characters will be optimistic and fresh-faced, I expect them to be far more dour by the end of even their first campaign.

I understand that they'll be folks who will look at this and want to be part of a crisis suit team etc, but I've got my reasons - not least of all narrative arcs and simplicity - to keep it based around Fire Warriors.

So there we are, any questions are very welcome, and I hope to get this going with you filthy xenos-lovers soon.

Haha.... ya..... I dropped the ball on that one. Keep meaning to pick it back up. Is this standard fire warriors or a breacher team?

Excellent, welcome aboard.

@Ollumhammersong

Should have said! I'd have not bothered.

As for type, breachers are a deployment afaik, so I'd imagine at differing points we could take on both roles; I'd see pathfinders as one you'd need especial training for.

Then again, if folks wish to be more close-in etc we can discuss it.

@caliban22 Likely your bog-standard T'au, but I would also consider Vior'la or Sa'cea - the pre-eminent military septs.

If the other RP isnt going ahead then please sign me up for this one.

My knowledge of Tau is only the game Fire Warrior and the first codex as i used to play them. I understand they were given a bit of a re-branding since then (because they lost all the time unless you spammed burst cannon drones).

I'd like to play a firewarrior with pulse rifle, marker light and medics tools.

@caliban22 We're a (soon to be) bonded fire team, which can be as small as six individuals.

@CleanBreeze Welcome aboard then, your option sounds fine - and don't worry, T'au have not changed massively, just got a little more grim, honestly.

Weeeeell, while I do find that funny, I also think it's a rather misrepresented meme. Like the Alpha Legion ones. Wouldn't call the fish-folk communist... Or amazingly hive-minded.

Eh close enough. The ethereal caste uses pheromones to control the other castes for the greater good.

Got a Discord going on here: discord.gg/zawQzxh

Will see about an OOC in a few days, and could do with a couple more people to complete the team.
