I'm interested.
Massacring, mass rape, and other such things are definitely not activities that most choirboys participate in.
Tell that to the Catholic Church.

Ok, now that the summer is upon us, I am very tempted to resurrect this idea.

Who's interested?
I thirst for battle.

Aye.
Captured Joe is my worst fear
You could say that he finds hungarian tanks riveting.

Cool, I'll start working on an OOC this weekend, aiming to have something proper up in the middle of next week.  :P

Of course.  :P

I'll start putting up the OOC piecemeal today/tonight, with a focus on what I want for  character applications, so you guys can start working things out while I finish things up.

Character Sheet with Explanations and Template:

(click to show/hide)

(click to show/hide)

In regards to length, I can be flexible but I would off the top of my head expect at least 250 words for appearance and personality, along with 500 or so words for the biography.

The way it works is you send your CS to me and then I will post it once I approve it.

Edit: However, feel free to write what you are roughly planning, it might avoid people creating too similar characters. Also, don't limit your character too much to one role, say SUPER L337 SNIPER, since in any given operation multiple skill sets will be required...though of course some specialization is good.

Ranks will be added later, but I am deciding on how in depth to go with that.



Pulling my evil GM card, the leader of our merry band is a former Austrian Gebirgsjäger, simply called Fuchs, or at least that is what his file claims.  :wink:

I'm kind of going the mysterious route with the character, so I haven't decided how much to reveal yet, but I'll try to have a CS up sooner rather than later.

Everyone should be a decent marksman and stealth specialist (past experience or training once reassigned). Especially, in a small unit like this, since if one person is out of action, another needs to at least adequately be able to fill their shoes. :lol:

Sabotage, recon and sneaking around behind enemy lines kind of necessitates all of those skills. Although, I suppose if someone had a very compelling character that was less of a combat specialist and more of a "spy" or something else that would work as well.

June 1941, Operation Barbarossa or there abouts, I haven't quite decided whether to start In Media Res on the day it all starts or a bit before to give everyone a chance to ease into character.

Naturally, that doesn't mean it has to be your characters first real battle, if anything I would prefer the opposite to be true. Since, it seems quite likely the characters started off in other units to begin with.

Oh I don't mean just any sharpshooter. I mean sniper with a capital S, N, I, and so forth. But for flavour I suppose he could also be an improvised weapons expert. It'd fit the backstory I have in mind fairly well.

That's fine, I just want all of you to understand roles may be quite fluid in the unit once the fighting starts.

It's expected that your characters have specialties, however, if possible avoid making a character that can only do one job, as that one job might not be required in most situations.



You should totally steal from Tom Clancy and have a Norwegian Biathlon athlete/sniper.  :lol:

Oh, that I'm fully aware of. Just wanted to point out this guy's main purpose in life is to peg Ivans from a hill 500 metres away. :D

I did consider that. But went in a different direction.
