Player Replacement : Only war: bronze throne

Recommended Posts

Hello guys and Gals? I am looking for a few players to replace those in my Only war group, we have just started out the camp, but I have found it hard to get every one together , I have decided to remove a few players who have constantly not turned up to games due to there person reasons, which is understandable , and thought here would be a good place to get and obtain reliable players.( I could use both reddit and roll20 but thought this time better to recruit from here as well ) 

 

Im looking for 1-3 players to replace those who are going.

 

Squad make up

Weapons specialist ( also the squads SGT)

Medic  ( player that needs replacing)

Heavy weapons gunner

Pysker ( player that is being replaced)

Priest 

 
 

We are using all the only war books , and a few DH and Rogue trader for extra weapons.

House rules for Comrades , and players will also get paid in thrones per month .

 

Next game is Sunday the 7th of September.

Players must have the following:

 

Internet connection

 

Be able to Make Sunday games 2 Pm UK time ( almost every week)

 

Must have skype with head phones / ,microphone

 

Be able to speak English to a conversational level.

 

Setting : Spinward front Calixis sector : Khonsu system _ planet Scourge

 

Brief info : Scourge is a Shire world in the progress of being built, with a small population of around 35million loyal imperial citizens. the relatively small world is famous for it's vast lighting farms, storm clouds that cover most of the planet and a very old piece of arco tech, rumors that it was made by the emperor him self, the bronze throne, capable of sustaining some ones life till the end of time. Due to the obscure location of the the planet the talk of arco tech is often just rumors. 

 

The world is now under siege by the severan dominate you the players are part of a imperial task force to retake the world and the system, it is unsure if the severan dominate wants the nearby agricultural world , and this world is just a bonus... or if they seek the rumored arco tech. 

 

The last massage that got through from the system was a distress call stating that the severan dominate had invaded, the system defense fleet was ever destroyed or fled the field. The planet was under attack, the PDF we taking heavy loses,  the artifact had been moved to a Local Adeptus sororitas monastery .

 

A regiment of the 891 Maccabean Janissariess was quickly dispatched  to the planet to assist in its defense, but no word has arrived of its condition.

 

 

Whats happened so far:

The players were introduced to the ship transporting them to the world, players were briefed on the situation and the mission. the players entered the planet and dropped to the surface to engage the enemy ( being drop troopers) The squad was dropped off course and landed in hostile controlled territory with in a urban environment . The  squad engaged a field gun and is now engaging in a heated battle with in a ware house , they are currently cut off and are attempting to link up with friendly forces.

Hamlet 3

Hamlet 3 was once a world devastated by a meteor impact , once rich in life and human civilisation was whipped off the map, as clouds of atomic fall out covered the surface for many years . Parts of the planet were fractured by the force of the impact, great canyons formed all over the world, interior cities were plunged into the depths of this once beautiful place, only to be filled by irradiated water, from the planets vast oceans. This time was known as the great cloud.

After the Angevin Crusade the planet was rediscovered, and soon set about a new colonization. This was known as the war of reclamation , as the mutant tribes of once humans, fought back with sticks, stones and whatever they could find. The war was quick, taking only a month to purge the planet , though some mutant tribe do still exist.

Now rich in strange metals, the settlers found that there were now flouting masses of rock, that were once part of the meteor that devastated this world. With magnetic qualities opposite to those of the planet, it is still mystery today why they float. Though now they play home to cities and small settlements.

The rest of the planet is now ever under water, or urban ruins, a Giant crater on the east continent, known as the great known, for its still covered in blankets of heavy radiation, while humans have tried to explore the region, no one has yet to return.
 

Climite

Hamlet three is a barren waste land, of ruined cities and irradiated oceans. It’s temperature is a uncomfortable dry 41 c, during the summer, while winter is long and hard at -20c with irradiated snow storms. About once a year for one week known as the great rains, the planet undergoes a violet rain storm seeing the fall of up to 30cms of rain in one hour.
 

Culture

The people of hamlet three are scavengers and can use the best out of nothing, they are frontiers men, living and dying by the gun, this has found them self’s being warery of other communities as banditry is somewhat common, as settlements run out of supplies, or cannot scavenger or make up what there years. Though the people make every last drop of water count and last bit of food, wasting is seen as big of a crime as murder, and stealing anthers supplies is also just as bad.
Hamlet three is known for it’s metals, light and strong, the metal from the meteor, and what was left of the planetary resources provide most of the tith for the imperium of man, though the people of hamlet three do produce guard regiments, but of small quantity only raising one or two at a time.
Due to the floating cities and vast distance between settlements, as well as the dangers on the ground , flying is the best form of transportation, and thus, a big part of Hamlet 3ths culture.
 

Structure and civilisation

The citizens of hamlet three live on the fragments of a meteor that once destroyed the planet thousands of years before. Large chunks of rock form hives while smaller pieces form towns and villages. Though the capital is the only place that has a vast population for this planet at least, holding ten million citizens.

Farming communities live on the third moon of hamlet three while factories and warehouse litter the other two moons. These settlements are generally small too.

A Group of settlers known as the lowlanders have small encampments in the ruined cities of the old world, these explorers search of accent technology hidden in the ruins.
 

Military and law enforcement

The local law enforcement known as the sky marshals dress in blue jumpsuits with bird shaped helmets gold coloured metal breast plates and should pads, often seen as harsh but fair, they lay down the hand of law on the planet, flying around in air vehicles swopping into settlements and dragging out criminals.
The planetary PDF also known as the Hamlet Reserve are made up of Ex guardsmen, those who have retired , and guardsmen in training.Recruits that are conscripted or volunteer to be a guardsmen first spend 16 weeks training with the PDF, drill instructors NCO’s and Officers are all Ex guardsmen. The training is hard and tuff with a 30% drop out rate, and 15% causality rate .

 

Food and Drink

 

 Ratguls are a common food sources on the planet, a segul mixed with a rat these pests are often found around settlements and the vast sea islands can be made int Birdie hotdogs burgers, pies, and anything you can really think of .

 

Grain Alcohol is a  85% proof drink, often drunk just as much as water, Tastes like ethanol with elderberry with a slight bit of cough mixture, but has anti radiation drugs mixed in to help the population of hamlet deal with the vast amounts of radiation.

 

Grinja is a  pod that grows off root it is often used for juice, or used to make flour, soup ,can be eaten as it is, this is basicly the main grain style product.

 

York driver  is  a Avian predator with high rich meat , is as big as a man It's often hunted by nobles and those with the correct licenses for those nobles to lazy to hunt, or fat.

 Entertainment and sport

Hunting  is a common sport from the lowest of man to the highest of nobles , due to the lack of resources in terms of food and is a right of passage for those coming of age!

 

Drop boxing is a game where people  jump out of a aircraft With grave shots and fall to the ground fighting in the sky .  Based on the old game of  chicken the first person to pull there shot wins or to knock the other player out .

 

Sky racing simple really people get a bunch of aircraft and race them.

Cool sounding regiment. Nice work! Like the sound of this drop boxing. New sport anyone? No? Okay...

I was almost sure that this is intentional. A good explanation of why almost no one lives on the surface.

Hi CommissarWilliams I'm interested in this game and yes I'm new to the forum and this game would be my first time playing Only War although I've run a few one shots before. I'm rather young and inexperienced in RPG's but if you and your group is willing to have me I would be more then willing to play. I'm flexible on the time and could probably play from 6:00 PM (UK time) to 4:00 AM (UK time). Also I have a copy of the core rule book so that's not a problem. Please contact me if you are willing to have me.

Good luck in your hunt for more players.

Ive managed to get one person indeed. The regiment was a combined effort on my part as the game master and the players, they gave me a frame work and come up with new ideas and add them to game, I have a spread sheet with the regiment broken down into company's , platoons and squads. With over 1000 names and job rolls . Just so I do not have to think on the spot, and remember what names i gave for the troopers.
