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!
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.
