What's this then, ey?! You'd best not be a manhunter!



I am Jbcool (known as McScottish on the Total War Centre); Briton by birth, roleplayer by my own hand, and lover of literature. I am also an amateur historian, a receiver of a Bachelors degree in Ancient and Medieval History - quite a useless degree, actually - and would like to think that I'm a fair, honest and open guy.

As far as RP'ing goes, I'm pretty open to most things really, all you need to do is ask! :)

So, if you've ever any questions for me, wish to speak about RP's involving myself or run by myself, or simply feel like a chat, don't be afraid to get in touch.

Can I get a 'for the Greater Good' from any other willing participants?

The journey to Nionus Seven-Twelve, a seemingly backward and unimportant planet that Livingstone nevertheless wished to place his flag, would appear to those aboard the ship to take no longer than a couple of weeks - in real space time passed differently, and indeed nearly three months had passed by the time the Pride ripped a new hole in space and the lion-headed prow came into being once more.

Each of the hand-picked individuals were summoned to the spacious, well furnished bridge; like most Traders he had decided to personalise it, and in doing so it reflected the greatest bridges of the Imperial Navy - clean, spacious, and extremely efficiently organised - Livingstone himself sat upon a high-backed command-throne, smaller chairs surrounding a quite expensive planning table (non-standard issue Imperial tech, very hush hush...) in a semi-circle.

Human (as opposed to servitor slaves) eyes watched the percieved interlopers as they came and took their seats, most no doubt bored from their trip - in spite of the array of activities - Livingstone wouldn't know as he hadn't seen them during this time...


Once they had all taken their seats, and the eyes had returned to their stations to keep the Pride drifting along as it did, a gesture from the Trader bought the planet up into focus once more.

"Nionus Seven-Twelve was founded quite recently, technically speaking, colonists from Tallarn and Necromunda slammed together and scattered over the surface of this giant desert. When the 'settlers' - criminals and deserters for the most part - got there they found a xenos species waiting for them, this species they promptly destroyed. Half-a-dozen hive cities sprung up across the world, what structures remain are of pre-Imperial origin and it is these that concern us."

"Of specific interest is this site here," the map zoomed in to something a few miles north-east of a smaller hive city, "it is assuredly pre-Terran in origin, reminiscient of Ancient Gyptus in fact. Most of the structure we believe is beneath the surface of the planet, therefore we've no real knowledge of what to expect - resistance and so forth."

"We will be coming into orbit of the planet within the day, so I would advise preparing yourselves thoroughly."

The formerly hunched explorer now straightened his back and smoothed his beard with one hand.

"Questions, troubles, anyone?"
Got a Discord going on here:

Will see about an OOC in a few days, and could do with a couple more people to complete the team.
@caliban22 Sounds like Gue'la propaganda to me...
Space hivemind communism.

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.

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

Excellent, welcome aboard.


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.

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.
