Anyone else hitching a ride aboard this train? or is Davion riding alone...
cool
Not necessarily. If no one wants to play one they can always be NPC'd and doing their thing in the background. You can even make it a point of the game. Someone onboard is killing tech-adepts! they have to be found and stopped or else shit will go sideways real quick.
Actually they do have a monopoly, That's the entire point of the tech cult and why they are so powerful and independent within the normally strict Imperial hierarchy. Without that monopoly there would be little reason for the Imperium at large to tolerate their shenanigans or bend to their whim as often as they do. It's also why military campaigns or mining operations can grind to a complete halt sometimes. Without a mechanicus agent around, no one knows how cogitators work or how to do serious repairs. Yes a guardsman can maintain their own lasrifle, sure. But the train would and could not run without a techpriest on board. And if things went wrong no one outside the cult would have any idea of how to fix the train if shit started to break.

Your typical Imperial citizen may not even know how the plumbing in their hab-blocks works. They simply accept that it does work and trust that someone above them knows how to placate whatever machine spirit that keeps the water flowing.

And the Death korp engineering corp is a military engineering corp. They aren't fixing generators and repairing tank engines so much as digging fortifcations and mining out trenchworks. Engineering corps in that context means they are experts at creating or breaking through a siege situation. Not repairing and maintaining equipment.
@Dusty Strictly speaking, engineering officers don't exist. The secrets needed to keep even the simplest machines operational are closely guarded secrets of the techcult that they don't give out to anyone who isn't also a priest of Mars.
@Loo Tenant you should probably lay out a clearer image for people on what is and is not acceptable in terms of character concepts. i.e what's strictly off limits, and what non typical roles might be available. by non-typical I mean sisters of battle, arbiters are they yah or nay? techpriests, etc
Try bumping the interest check again. And/or send a quick PM to those who originally expressed their interest. If they say no and no one else joins in the next couple days then ya, it's probably dead. But don't give up on it too quick. From the first post of an interest check to the first IC, games can take two or three weeks to get off the ground sometimes. You have to keep at it.

And sometimes people are just waiting to see if anyone else posts first before jumping in. Seeing other people interested helps others make their decision.
Name: Davion Anderwell
Age: 32
Gender: Male

Height: 5'9”
Weight: 180lbs
Notable Physical Features: Augmented lower left leg, additional respiratory augments.
Mutations: N/A
Appearance:


Equipment and Gear: Flak Vest, PDF fatigues, Combat shotgun, Knife, Frag Grenades x2
Prefered Weapon: Combat Shotgun

Character History/Biography: Master Corporal Davion has served with the Hypecian PDF forces since shortly after his twenty-first birthday. He was deemed unfit for off world duty at the Imperial recruiting office due at the time to his scrawny physical stature and the planetary governor's push to increase the standing PDF strength of the city to combat growing unrest from the several cities and under hive activities, which is now plainly revealed to be the secretive opening moves of the genestealer cults and their planetwide destabilization efforts. Rather than send willing and able volunteers off world many like him were kept at home.
Since that rejection over ten years ago, Davion has fought hard, literally and metaphorically to transform himself into the hardy and strong squad leader the rest of his platoon know him as today. A decade of hard graff, fighting local gangers and cultist elements. No one thinks of him as the scrawny pipsqueak that stumbled embaressingly into the training yards eleven years ago, and few alive in his company even remember him from those early days. His bitterness has since long faded as well. He no longer thinks of what adventures and experiences he would have had if he had gone out amongst the stars. He's fought enough criminals and monsters at home to realize that the Emperor, in his eternal wisdom likely planned for him to stay and play some part in the current clusterfuck. He still isn't sure if he should be grateful for that or not.
