@Everyone I've posted up the OOC thread, feel free to talk amongst yourselves there and figure out how you want your characters to have (or not have) history with one another
Here is the link.http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=100129.0
@TheDon: Both characters approved
@ArtemisHighmore: A little more detail, info, and organizing is forthcoming....right now as a matter of fact! Inquisition Characters:
Stiehr Alt(CmdrRenegade)-Retinue MemberSpace Marine Characters:
Brother Crixus(Primarch)-Assault Marine
Brother Arcacious(Odin)-Tactical Marine
Brother Telemachus(The Don)-Terminator MarineImperial Guard Characters:
Aldous Glanville(The Don)-Commissar
Pontius “Iron Gut” Condis(Kevben Battleheart)-Guardsman
As far as I can tell that is all the characters that have been submitted and approved so far. If I missed one of your character's and you think he/she is ready to be approved please let me know. Now that we have that out of the way here is the breakdown of who is in who's squad, ect.
Commissar Glanville is the Commissar attached 5th Squad, 3rd Platoon, this is also the squad that Pontius is a part of. There are two Stormtrooper Squads(8th & 10th) attached to 3rd Platoon, Victor is in one of these squads(8th). So while Victor's squad may not always deploy alongside Glanville and Pontius's squad they will normally be working towards the same objectives.
Obviously, Winter & Stiehr will always(with perhaps very few exceptions) deploy alongside one another due to his being part of her retinue
Crixus is currently the sergeant in command of 5th Company's 8th Squad, one of the company's two assault squads. His squad consists of 4 other Assault Marines, and himself.
Arcacious is a member of 4th Squad led by Sergeant Sutiva. The squad consists of 8 Tactical Marines, including Aracious.
Telemachus is a member of one of two squads of terminators that have been attached to 5th company for the crusade. His squad's task is to deploy alongside the company's main forces while the other squad is the one held in reserve to be called in to support crisis areas.
From here players can extrapolate any relationships/previous dealings that their characters have(or haven't) had with one another.
Also here is a bit of backstory on the Yuktobonian 7th, the Imperial Swords, and 5th company to help everyone figure out how they do/don't know one another.
The Yuktobonian 'Lucky' 7th
The Yuktobonian 7th, along with the 6th, 5th, and 9th, infantry regiments were all raised in response to a rebellion on the planet Tyra in a neighboring system. They, along with other regiments from Tyra's neighboring systems, took part in the planet's pacification. Due to a combination of poor command decisions, obsolete intelligence regarding the enemy, and even worse luck what should have been a quick campaign for the newly founded regiments turned into a baptismal by fire.
Even though all the regiments taking part in Tyra's pacification were bloodied and met with ill fortune, the 7th seemed to suffer from poor luck more than any other. In fact there were several instances where large numbers of casualties could be attributed to nothing but bad luck. The most noteworthy of which was a mistake made somewhere at central HQ that saw the city of Suddort Heights, an area where there was little more than light resistance, targeted for a full scale bombardment on the day after the 7th had finished taking it. Needless to say the regiment had not yet pulled out from the city and suffered horrendous casualties as a result.
By the end of the pacification the 6th, 5th, and 9th Yuktobonian regiments were well under half strength. While the 7th had been all but wiped out and was barely able to boast 100 men. The decision was made by High Command to disband the current 7th Regiment, combine the 6th, 5th, and 9th, and re-found them as the Yuktobonian 7th Combined Regiment in order to take advantage of the high concentration of veterans that such a combination would place in a single unit. Given the history of the last unit to hold the regiment's name there was no surprise amongst the 7th's officers when they learned of the moniker that the rank and file had seen fit to give the 7th.
Since that time the 7th has survived several campaigns, always losing guardsmen, only to have survivors from other regiments combined into. Imperial Swords
Created as part of the Thirteenth Founding, The Imperial Swords have always proven themselves to be a loyal, brave, and powerful Chapter. As is fitting for any group of Space Marines.
Taking a lesson from the destruction of several chapters such as the Marines Errant, the Knights of Eternity, and their own sister chapter the Emperor's Swords. All of whom were destroyed by events that befell their recruiting worlds. The Chapter's master severed ties with its former recruiting worlds and as of 137.M41 the chapter holds no officially listed recruiting worlds. Preferring to simply gather recruits from systems they are currently in when the need arises.
The chapter's teachings and doctrines revolve around fulfilling their self-stated role as the spear tip of military actions taken by the 'lesser' forces of the Imperium. And while the Chapter teaches that each marine should respect and value his comrades in the Imperial Guard, PDF's, and the many other warriors of the Imperium. Such constant close contact with the Imperium's mortals have been known to cause contempt for said mortals' weaknesses and frailties.
Before the Intrepid Crusade 5th Company was involved in a long fought war for the Fowler system against the forces of the Tau Empire.
