Current Oh, what is a man to do? I surround myself with friends, and fill my time with fun and games. Yet, with each passing day, I only feel more alone.

Work in progress. Expect spelling mistakes and unfinished sections.
@Dealdric I'm assuming that you'll be taking on the role of the world we live in.

Either way, I'm interested. If there's no major objections, I'd like to lay claim to wrath.
If you're still taking on players, I'd be interested in a spot. Been wanting to play in a FT game for a while now.
@BCTheEntity@Klomster@Jbcool

What say the rest of you?
So... is this just dead now?
@Klomster Kind of makes you wonder; are there entire planets dedicated to the creation and distribution of ink cartridges, or is it just easier to mine aluminum or the like and engrave the instructions onto that?

Personally, I just want to know what poor, unfortunate agri-world is dedicated to growing nothing but paper trees so the rest of the Imperium has toilet paper.
@Jbcool Well, it's more complicated than that. The majority of loyalist legions see themselves as the protectors of humanity. They don't really judge humans as lesser beings, so much as they set themselves apart from them. Sure, there are some Astartes legions that could give two fucks less about humans, but that's more about the decisions of the chapter masters and the captains than the actual marines.

Remember, every space marine started life as a human. They've just ascended to the level of super-human. After that, they tend start thinking of humans the way Spider-man, or even Superman do. Separate, less powerful, and needing protection... but still living, sentient beings, worthy of both that protection, and of respect.

Especially for guardsmen. Practically any Marine recognizes that any given guard soldier is a hell of a lot braver than they are. Space Marines go into combat wrapped in power armor, wielding at minimum a chain sword and a literal hand-cannon, and with so many ogmentations that it takes absolutely ridiculous levels of firepower to actually kill them.
But Astra Militarum foot soldiers? They get a lasgun and flack armor, and they're expected to take on everything from hyper-evolved super aliens, to literal fucking daemons from hell. And those are just the ones that get training. Conscripts get issued a pamphlet on how to point their flashlights, and a complimentary wheel barrel to drag around their giant fucking testicles. And they're lucky if the Munitorum printed off enough pamphlets!
@BCTheEntity No worries. Lucius is acting every bit the way someone would expect an old-school Astartes to act. Especially a dark angel. In fairness, I was being kind of an ass with my response. I apologize for that.

All that said, best we look past it and continue on, I think. We've got our current goal ahead of us, and once we've reached it, the true fun of this RP can finally come into effect.
@Jbcool It's not really been discussed if there's an opposite end to the cat walk, connected to the far wall or not. If there was, though, there would be a good deal of space between Vespin and said wall, as he originally took up his current position to blanket-fire the door Oskar came in.

So, yes, he could potentially get behind Vespin. However, he wouldn't be able to do it quietly, by any means. Though, there's really not a great deal of need for it. If Decius has been listening in, he'd know that Vespin is quite literally offering them exactly what they're after; A path straight to the leader of the ship, a plan to take control of the command deck, a way to control the rest of the ship once they have the deck, and even a place to go and get a new ship when they abandon the one they're on.

That's exactly what he Just got done saying. That, and he's mentioned the traitor legions. Decius might be in a position to have issue with that, especially when Vespin just said 'You (the space marines) could all be Alpha Legion spies.'
How is he being anything but completely reasonable? A bunch of random space marines show up out of nowhere, release a group of prisoners, and all during the middle of a space combat without anyone on board being notified. Then, when the ratling offers up a plan to give them Exactly what they want, one of them starts mouthing off because... what, he isn't the one in charge?

Oh no!!! A space marine isn't going to be the center of attention! However could this possibly be?!

And, yes, he's rude about it. He's a ratling, a guardsmen foot soldier, and a veteran. Anyone who's been around any of the three would know that they aren't 'nice.'

@Jbcool If Decius shows up from where the prison scene occurs, he'd be on the lower floor, near Oskar and Vespin's entire squad of ratlings. Everyone else is on a catwalk, a full floor above them, and on the opposite side of the room, save Vespin who is in the middle. Also of note, the room is large, and Vespin has an auto-cannon trained on the other two space marines.
