I'm starting up an Only War game on rpol,net if anybody is interested. I need probably 3 more players. The adventure will probably be No Surrender. So please people who know the adventure do not apply.
The game style would be "grunts in the trenches over their heads fighting the horrors of the universe" as opposed to "elite special-forces squad." Which functionally means (in addition to playing up the dystopian aspects of the setting) no comissars or stormtroopers and a minimum of advances specialties in general.
It's also "fluff-realistic," which means the squad has to make sense from a fluff perspective. In other words somebody needs to be the sergeant and most people should be "grunts" (= weapons specialists, medics, operators, heavy gunners). An Enginseer would be OK if the regiment is mechanized; an Operator would be required. A Priest would work.
Player-character death is a real possibility (as it should be in Only War anyway if the rules are abided by).
Two other things. Play by post is a slow medium and I know from experience that two things that make the thing drag inordinately (and soon collapse) are lack of posting and not knowing the rules. So if you don't think that you can post more or less regularlty, or are sketchy with the rules, don't start. I hope I don't sound like an ass here, but I know from experience what happens. The third thing is the player that just hangs in the background and says "I do whatever everybody else does" or doesn't say anything at all. Please don't be that guy.
Anyway, if anybody is interested, let me know.
