A Play-By-Post RPG
"To each of us falls a task, and all the Emperor requires of us Guardsmen is that we stand the line, and we die fighting. It is what we do best - we die standing."
- General Sturnn of the Imperial Guard
In the Grim Darkness of the 41st Millenium, there is only war.
Men and Women of the Imperial Guard die in their billions to hold back the unrelenting tide of Xeno, Chaos and Traitors like, hell bent on bringing their Empire - the will of the Immortal Emperor made manifest - to its knees. However, with the rise of Primarch Guilleman, himself one of the Emperors own sons returned, the Empire defends itself no more. With cries exultant, they take to the Star in ships laden to the keel with vehicles of war, to expand the reach of their Emperor further still. The era of Crusades has come again, and ambitious Generals take up arms, formulate grand stratagems and plans to bring planets formerly thought of as beyond their reach into the Empires grasp.
One such man is the newly appointed Warmaster Maxim Auxillia, formally of the 322nd Cadian Light Infantry before the fall of its namesake world. Forged of unbridled ambition, political avarice and tactical genius, the Warmaster has set his gaze upon the fringe worlds of Tabbath, north of Terra, beyond the Cicatrix Maledictum - far in the northernmost reach of the known Galaxy. But to reach such lofty heights as Warmasters have done before him; Auxillia requires the aid of untold millions of men.
You are such a man, the cog in the machine of war, the tread of the tracks of this crusade, and the shell which loses from its weapon. A Platoon Commander, one of the untold thousands across the Warmasters invasion force, it is people like you that allow the Warmasters campaign to advance, and knowingly or not, with each order that passes your lips, with each man who dies gurgling in the mud of foreign shores under your command - that ambition is furthered.
Welcome to 'Platoon' a Play-By-Post RP brought to you by the wonderful me.
In joining this RP you take on the role of a Platoon Commander, of a regiment and platoon of your choosing, taking part in the aforementioned Crusade to bring more worlds into the Imperiums fold. The RP itself will be simple, and after posting your characters and platoons up, you will be sent as a group to a world to partake in an invasion. At the end of each post made by me, there will be a bolded action, which you lot will respond to with an in character post, followed by one action by your Platoon Commander, and an Order issued to your platoon by your character as well.
How well this actions and orders synergies will be shown in the next post by me, and damage will be dealt to both sides before the next round of posting begins. Your actions will therefore directly impact how successful the story is, and what its outcome will be. At the conclusion of each thread, upgrades will be given to platoons and then the next thread will start.
