Legion (pre-during-post Heresy) RP OOC\Voting thread

    Okey guys, due to popular (? :D) demand, we gonna get another Space Marine semi-historical RP! Rejoice! Alright, now that we got that one out, let's get down to business.

    I'll keep this one fairly simple compared to the other stuff I did in order to evade brain melting, so expect a bit more relaxed environment although that might change depending on what you guys chose to do. Basically, I'm aiming to make the RP similar to Original Chapter RPs done by other guys on the forum, not to steal their thunder but to simply add more juice in the mix (more is better!). We'll pick one of the Legions from the list and start off from the Great Crusade, cover Horus Heresy and continue afterwards depending on what happened. Since I don't have perfect knowledge of every legion, some of the stuff will be written by me but I will keep it historically accurate as much as possible (e.g. no such thing as Dornian Heresy :D) although don't worry - if you chose a traitor legion, there'll be a chance to either go dark or stay on the light, I have a cool plan for that already in the makings.

    You'll start off as a fresh legionary aka battle brother and continue from there, earn your specialist ranks if you want, etc. I'm still not decided on what type of combat will we use, but I'll know more the moment I know how many people wanna play it. So pretty much all is familiar but if you have any questions, feel free to ask them ofc!

    Now, EC forum doesn't allow more than 6 choices for a poll so I'll drop you a list here of possible Legions and you vote for those you wanna see. The one with the most votes wins! I'll also write down the reason why some of the Legions aren't in there, so I'm sorry in advance if I crossed out one of your favorite legions, but I only took those which I'm confident I can make it work and feel like an actual legion, not do some random mumbo jumbo and make Ultramarines look like Imperial Fists or vice versa. The voting choices are below, hope you don't mind on a subtle game of numbers there :D

    Voting options are:


    1. Dark Angels
    3. Emperor's Children
    4. Iron Warriors
    7. Imperial Fists
    8. Night Lords
    10. Iron Hands
    12. World Eaters
    14. Death Guard
    16. Luna Wolves
    17. Word Bearers
    19. Raven Guard
    20. Alpha Legion


    Q: Why not list the remaining legions?
    A: Various reasons, and I'll be happy to explain:

    1. White Scars
    - we already played them in Jester's RP, and no matter how much I think they are awesome, it would be uncool to do it to my buddy and steal\overwrite his stuff.
    2. Blood Angels - @matt23 has been doing a great job with them in his RP, so if you want Blood Angel action, go to him!
    3. Thousand Sons - all of us will eventually end up like Sorcerers and I don't think that will be really appealing to pull out afterwards, not to mention I haven't read neither "Thousand Sons" nor "Prospero Burns" (blam heresy!)
    4. Ultramarines - Again, I lack necessary knowledge to make Ultramarines realistic. Problem with Legions which have lots and lots of material written behind them is that there isn't much room to make stuff up and keep it accurate and the last thing I would like is to miss the mark and don't do a proper justice to the chosen legion. On the other hand, it gives us lots of cool opportunities to write nice stuff for legions on which there isn't much stuff, like Death Guard for instance.
    5. Space Wolves - same reason from above but even more severe in this choice. I know @Grall_Stonefist would hunt me down if I miss how Russ rolls :D
    6. Salamanders - for all others I have some idea what they were doing, for Salamanders I have absolutely no idea what they did during or pre Heresy, other than Vulkan got captured by Curze and that he lives (ofc!) because he is a perpetual. So once again, bad choice for me.

    Of course, I'm not saying I can do 100% accurate images of those legions above, but I'm gonna try nonetheless and not to mention, any and all criticism is highly wanted and appreciated!

    Tagging people here, I'll throw the names of our usual suspects even though I know some of you don't play Space Marines (or I just never saw you playing them in which case I apologize) while others don't like me :D Haha, jk, ofc that everybody loves Deadpool. I mean Jaghatai :D Seriously now, If I failed to tag you it doesn't mean I don't want you in this game, it's just that I made an error for which I apologize in advance.

    @High_Adept_Zeth Special mention for our resident Magos: since you asked about a Mechanicum guy, I'm cool with you coming up with a servant of the Omnissiah who might be attached to a Legion in order to help them with stuff and providing a link to Mars's priesthood. Like that guy I forgot his name who went with Luna Wolves and stayed with them in their betrayal.

    Lots of love for the Luna Wolves! Not a bad choice aye, one that would be super awesome to pull out if your "squad" chooses to disobey Horus on his path to Chaos and remain loyal.

    At the same time, Alpha Legion could perhaps be the funniest to write for :D All of their secrets leave a lot for us to imagine and make up :D

    Alpha legion presents the fun of tackling whether they were Loyalist or not all along. I always liked the theory that the Twin Primarchs were actually split with one being traitor and the other loyal.

  7. Colapse Colapse Forum Beta Tester

    Yeah but one of them, not sure if loyal or traitor, supposedly died....or did he now? :D And since they all look alike in that Legion, what stops one of you being Alpharius? :O Or even Omegon? :OOO The plot thickens.

    Not sure if I can commit to playing another game, and if I want to play a Marine, but thanks for the offer!

    However if I did, it would be a Night Lord.

    I am a son of the sunless world ...

    Hmmmmm
    I kind of want to put my vote in with alpha legion but another part of me wants to do Emperor's children.
    Anyways If I were either of those I would likely start out as a newly recruited scout and knowing little about hte legion.
