    Legacy System Information:

    RP 'how it came to be' Information:

    So here is what you need to know:
    Max Players: 6
    (I won't be one of these, I will purely GM and well play through NPCs I suppose :p)

    Players are RENEGADE Marines. NOT Chaos Space Marines. RENEGADES. See definition help here:

    The available EX-Legions are:
    Iron Warriors, Night Lords, Word Bearers, Thousand Sons, Death Guard, World Eaters and Emperor's Children
    (For lore & char background purposes only, won't affect gameplay itself)

    Since you will be Renegades, you don't swear allegiance to the Emperor or any god. So if you play World Eater, you won't praise to Khorne. If you play Death Guard you won't praise to Nurgle. If you are Thousand Son you won't praise to Tzeentch. If you are Emperor's Children you won't praise to Slaanesh.

    Important Background Information:
    You live individually, not as a group. You know one another by name, rank, and general background (which is why the char sheets will be posted here publicly). The Population knows you as Heroes, Legends and in mythological beings as you lived on the planet ever since the Horus Heresy ended and now is the 41st Millenium, meaning you are truly legends that are 10 thousand years old.

    You may even choose to have your character live with some of the population and therefore be a true living hero, others may be more mythological if their background is to live far away from everyone.

    The Population itself is in a Renaissance-Era like time. This means they have early inventions and applications of gunpowder. You saw them grow from tribes people, through the medieval times to the Renaissance. The Imperium does not know of this world as many records have been lost, plus that you covered your exile by faking your death and have made sure that this planet in particular never was to be found again, having it eradicated from the Imperial Star Maps altogether.

    There were 2 major campaigns you had your hand in before. The first was a Feral Ork invasion that almost eliminated all of the tribes of this planet, you intervened and killed the Orks, purged them for good. An old friend by the name of Jurt Zethica has died during this fight, he was an Imperial Fist who joined you, not having been capable of accepting the Codex Astartes, not bending his knee to Guilliman as Warmaster just like Dorn didn't bend to Horus. This was around 6000 years ago.

    The second major campaign was against what you have come now to learn as 'Eldar' They raided and burned early medieval-era cities and castles, having kidnapped at least five thousand. In fact you were incapable of fighting them back, they just disappeared after they had gathered enough slaves. Still you were praised as heroes, especially after you found the webway gate and made sure it was never opened again. This was around 2500 years ago.

    Now it was a new menace that was coming upon the planet. You only know that SOMETHING is coming but not what, so you gather in the biggest city of this world - Adranur

    The individual character intros will be about their travels to Adranur.

    Heh, my heresy know no bounds. I left your other Rp to free up a spot for this one. SO count me in.

    Just some feedback.
    Wut. What is the point of even being a legion or even writing a past if it doesn't effect our characters. We could all just tell our story through the RP. No, it should really give you an advantage with what Legion you pick since the coolest thing about all the (now Chaos ) legions is they all have some kind of unique combat trait to them (Really alot of the loyalist ones don't). Speaking of renegades why cant any other legion be a choice? From what I remember some of the loyalist chapter had some kind of turn(I can remember the White Scars specifically), so I feel like any legion should be able to be one of a renegade especially since none of us worship a god.

    Speaking of that, as you put it "He lives for his own goals," so why can't we worship any gods? I guess its is weird to have a Khorne worshiper not trying to kill everyone, but we cant even worship the Emperor? That could be a big reason why we didnt go to the Eye of terror in the first place.

    And worst of all. YOU FORGOT THE SONS OF HORUS/LUNA WOLVES! and that other one that may or may not exist

    I didn't forget Horus ppl, I chose to not include them for different reasons. And the Legion should have no influence itself except aesthetics and background. And I restricted it to these legions for lore reasons.

    For Example Luna Wolf & Raven Guard would mean only trouble, because we all know about a certain gate battle that broke their relation.

    As for the Emperor, I want to keep it as a plot thing that so far nobody of you believes into him or that he is an actual god and/or the salvation. I want you to think about YOUR personal reasons, not about fighting for some god. To allow you to be far more intrinsic rather than extrinsic in personality.

    And your goals should not be related to your gods, but to yourself. If it is power you seek, then you should train hard and want to defeat others by yourself, not entrusting your power into others. That is where true strength lies, within yourself.

    Believe me I made the choices consciously for lore, character and plot reasons. I know that each Legion had their own Renegades, especially the Red Corsairs are prove enough that Renegades can come from anywhere.

    While I thank you for your critique, I think the setup is quite good - except others have similar complains. I am always open for change prior to start, but only if it truly is a good reason.

    Oh and one thing why I restricted it down to Horus' Side Legions is because I don't wanna see stuff really like a Word Bearer and Ultramarine wrestling all the darn time or an Iron Warrior brawling with an Imperial Fist or as earlier mentioned have a Raven Guard and Luna Wolf / Son of Horus having their disputes with one another.

    You could just tell us not to try to wrestle. If I am correct, we all know each other and if we did ever have issues, we would either kill each other or get over it in the 10k years. I still dont understand why are origin doesn't actually effect us. Not only are we Primarch(gene-seed wise) compared to the new SM, but they all have a unique trait (like the hardiness of the DG or the berserk strength of the WE). But its your show.

    Ill get my Char sheet out in a little.

    Good joke, that one :p The players of this forum love combat, be it against one another or against foes. And I think you kinda missed what I meant that the legion is only aesthetic....

    Look. You are super-duper compared to other Astartes, no question. But I am not making you more super than you are anyway. Look you are darn Astartes with just common humans around you, you already are like 9000 times more superior. One of you probably could slay the entire population of the entire world xD

    As for unique traits and what not, I actually was not going to go with that just because the fact of that it should come with the class. It is purely to make the choice of legion more favorable for you guys.

    I don't want one to choose Thousand Sons just so he can play a better sorcerer. I want you to choose your legion because you know the lore of them or just because you like their colors or their logo or go figure what attracts you to a certain legion.

    Though I may be biased since that is exactly how I went with Pillars of Eternity, to choose a certain race because certain attribute bonuses xD

    Oh, yeah? :) I also assume all of us just happen to go here and meet each other. Not that we all came on the same ship. If not ill change the lore a little.

    Char Sheet:
    Character Name: Karr "The Red Wave"
    Basic Class: Assault
    Advanced Class: Lordship
    Personality: Homicidal, Respectful, Stern, Fair.

    Brief History (in 3 parts);
    #1 Karr was inducted into the World Eater Legion almost a century before the Betrayal. While many joined with their father, Karr took the path less traveled and left with a frigate with other who felt the same. While having no Idea currently of the battle of Terra, Karr with his ship found the world of Adranur. At the time there was almost a whole company of Astarte, but some kept their true allegiance hidden and attacked Karr. The battle raged on for days until the Traitors set their frigate to crash land on the planet. There plan succeeded.

    #2 The frigate had crashed into a large tribe of feral people. The ship killing most of them and the populace thought it was a sign from their forgotten god, punishing them. When Karr and another rise from the destroyed husk, they praised him as the god, and due to his Astarte form he quickly proved to be a candidate. Sooner or latter he ruled the little village, turning it to a prosperous time. At one point his village was decades advanced then they had ever had come across. This eventually changed when the Ork arrived. As the whole planet banded together to fight this threat, he met others like him either true similar info on the planet or by luck. The war proved two things, the people had fought with their 'god' harder than any other men Karr had seen and that the god was deserving of the title, The red wave.

    After the Ork threat had been eliminated, Karr found a new purpose for his people. With some practices taken from his legion, Karr quickly transformed it into a dominant military land-power for the people of Adranur. Not for any other tribe. All villages who could bear arms learned the way of the blade. Warrior first and people second. Even in the times of Gunpowder, Karr's village, The World Eaters have continued to concentrate there focus on Melee Combat.

    #3 Karr has found himself his 85th family. It had recently started and has one adopted child. A boy. A recent plague has occurred to the village. While this happens every few century's it had never been this bad. Many woman can not survive child birth due to the plague and many children don't survive. In the past 13 years, only 27 children had lived. Although they all seem immune to the Plague. Karr himself has been slowly losing his sanity, the Butcher's nail taking its tole on his mind. While he usually has supplements to tame his aggression , the slaughter continues to call him. Sooner or later he will need to fill his thirst for blood.

    1 Combat Knife
    1 Volkite Serpenta (Pistol)
    1 Bolter
    Power Armor Mark V

    It was definitely organized in some way, be it a secure transmission or a general letter or even just a rumor. But it was organized for those that do not know whom to serve that they could find safe haven here.

    And btw you never registered for the legacy system? :p

    You can have the jetpack but don't forget it only has limited fuel, we may simply assume he saved it for as horrible things as what is still to come and that it will somehow last to the end of the new threat :p (Raptor without Jetpack would be a bit meh, right? :p)

    Don't forget on your player stuff to buy at least 1 character skill.
