    what we do for now:
    -we create the main protagonist and his retinue.
    -you create the characters.
    -we tuning the (simpliest possibile) combat sistem.

    when is all ready the real game start now we write down the "zero" turn.

    what this rp is about:
    -A creation of a huge imperal army, fighting impossibile battle.
    -A lore friendly combat sistem.
    -Creating a story starting from "nothing" to a glorius army.

    what is accepted:
    -all the homebrew fluff friedly.
    -You cannot use character or army in existence in fluff: you must create your character and army. (but you can inspire yourself from other existent army and sub faction for example "my regiment have uniform similar the death korp of krieg but have red trenchcoat etc etc) (my spacemarine are white scar successor etc etc)
    -Free expression; you can narrate all the epic and powerfull you want NO limit, obviusly when you loose you loose, BUT you can make it epic, and for example without loosing a single space marine only wounded. Obviusly no ridiculus thing or out of fluff (a single guardsman killed a titan with a rock NO). (a single guardsman crippled a titan with a melta gun YES).


    The setting:

    The main protagonist is fresh nominated Lord general militant, But this is not fair promotion: the LGM, have almost no resource, no support, no hope. Someone in the high lord of terra want to eliminate the LGM by disonhoring his previus glorius carrer!
    Lucly the LGM still have a lot of friends in the imperium!
    YOU are one of this friends! Help the LGM to protecting the imperium and find who made this little "joke" to your old friend.

    OOC: inspired by other RP's here?

    Lord General Militant: Harald Eisenpanzer (literally: Irontank rather being though Ironarmor)

    He got promoted to LGM after a chaos invasion, defending the capital as a major back then he with his elite regiment of the planet held them back at all costs. Many fell, but the Chaos forces were denied to conquer their goal, the Capital itself. The troops held long enough out to tire the enemies out and wait for reinforcements from a distanced city that just had repelled an attack. With the main Armor division Eisenpanzer together with his few dozen men left surrounded the enemy main body and killed the chaos lord in a one on one duel. Afterwards the Governor was lifted of his position and executed as he had a pact with the Chaos Lord what was revealed during the defense, just before the Chaos Lord himself died.

    Eisenpanzer for his duties and purity was promoted to LGM afterwards.


    The Main Protagonist (our character) is a Lord Admiral which was sent for orbital defense and taking over the fleet in the sub-sector where our LGM-friend is ruling. His name: Jorhan Stahl (Stahl = Steel ; name = stolen from Killzone)

    Stahl is known for his supreme fleet tactics and is well aware that sacrifices have to be done for a victory. The greatest victory of Stahl was when he sacrificed 3 Frigates just to fake a retreat from Tau forces, they lured in, thinking falsely that they were in upper hand. But just when the 3 Frigates were destroyed the main fleet body engaged the Tau fleet from behind. His Overlord Class ship at the tip, together with 2 Dominator Class Ships and 3 Cruisers they first destroyed the engines of the Tau ships and then obliterated them from behind where the Tau were powerless with their Lance cannons.

    The loss of 3 frigates were nothing to the enormous fleet loss of the Tau, as they were never spotted anywhere that system ever again.

    We know Eisenpanzer from childhood as we grew up together and then decided both to join the Imperial Army as every young man who loves his homeworld. He though chose the Ground life while Stahl chose the life of space. Starting out as a pilot, then recognized as too smart for such duty he went to officers academy to slowly work his way up to a Lord Admiral. The contact with Eisenpanzer was never broken as they even indirectly fought together back then when he was still in the PDF.

    But even after ending up in different sectors, they always wrote messages to eachother, keeping their bond together until now. (both ~40 years old now)

    ok, you want Harald Eisenpanzer as your character, or as the main character?
    (my idea was there is one "main character "like an npc and the player are the field general who fight with the troop the admiral is like your second character for the space battle).
    ok it's clear is an armored division of the imperial guard.
    and i imagine the overlord, is the flagship, you can keep it.
    soon i add also the combat rule and the point for the starting army (the idea is starting with little no resource and ending with deploing houdred of baneblade).

    So, can I create another character (commander) with his own army, but add myself in as an assistant to that commander instead of being a commander myself?
  5. Grigdusher Grigdusher Arch-Cardinal

    exacly, but you are almost indipendent in battle, you control your troop.
    the main character is here for keep togheter the player and make the plot advance. (and provvide the mass of cannon fooder trooper).
    for example you can create your chapter master, with his chapter, and fight in the battle of the main character.

    if a player disappear it's like only the player troop retreat.
    the main character will born by the choose of all the player.
  6. KnightReborned WanderingJester Well-Known Member

    No, I mean I want to create two characters. One of them will be a new commander, and one of them would be my alternate self, serving under that new commander. I think the main character has already been created so I just wanted add my own style to this story :D.
  7. Grigdusher Grigdusher Arch-Cardinal

    yes you can, they are your retinue/command squad member, like cain and jurgen or creed and keel
  8. Uriel1339 Uriel1339 Lord of Posts

    Main Char = Jorhan Stahl!

    Eisenpanzer is the LMG who needs our help! ^^
  9. Uriel1339 Uriel1339 Lord of Posts

    ohhhhh I see... well then consider Stahl as the second char for admiral-ness and you guys make a separate field commander who is the main-main char .... Main-Char = admiral would had been cool xD
  10. Grigdusher Grigdusher Arch-Cardinal

    ok perfect, if you want also create your general for the ground force or you can create an aereonatical force with Elysian Drop Troops leaded only by the lord admiral.
