Hello all. I'm a fairly new member of the forum, but bear with me here. I've got rather extensive online GMing experience over on Warseer. My RPs are entirely text based; your exploits limited only by your imagation and me deciding to clout you around the earhole if you do something really stupid.
By that, I mean feel free to dive headfirst into a massive group of enemies, but if you write that you kill every single one by yourself, I'll tell you to edit it. It's not fun for the rest of the group and doesn't help to build good character interaction. Also, this is more about group dynamics than combat. We will be fighting (bet on it :L@D: ), but there's an emphasis on creating relationships (good or bad) with your fellow RPers. So anyway, spiel over, here's the plan.
Nifleheim XI is a dead world, orbiting a nearly dead star and with inhabitants who would'd prefer to be dead than be on Nifleheim XI. You see, Nifleheim is a penal colony, where the scum of the imperium are sent to spend the rest of their days. Dingy, cramped cells dominate most of the facility, where prisoners are treated by the guards like a cross between cattle and footballs. Noone cares for those in the cells. One shuttle arrives on and leaves the planet per year; carrying new inmates in and getting rid of what's left of the old ones.
The guards of the facility are those who have done something bad in their past careers and have been forced into an exile of sorts. They in turn take it out on the prisoners, further exacerbating the situation. There is little communication between prisoners, and thus many inmates don't even know the face of the person in the next cell.
It is odd then, that the word 'revolt' seems to be circulating the cells. A mysterious savior has been taking and delivering messages from cell to cell, and the subject always seems to be the same. Now the same message has been delivered to certain cells: "The doors will open tommorrow night. Be ready."
So I'm after the following from anyone interested...
Bio (include crimes):
I'll be away for a week starting Monday, but if that doesn't slow things down game-wise (ie: it hasn't properly started yet), i'll happily take part, just gimme a bit of time to write up a bio :).
A question before i start writing my info: Is this a 40k based rpg or does the "imperium" refer to another made up futuristic empire? Also any alien restrictions? I guess that was 2 questions but I am interested in playing.
EDIT: I just read the topic description, something i didn't do when i clicked the link from the home page. however my alien question still needs answering. Are we all human or are we allowed to be a humanoid species?
Anything able to be mistaken for a human is allowed. Which pretty much restricts you to human mutants and genestealer cultists yet to mutate. Also, ogryns are allowed, although I'm setting a 0-1 on them. First in, first served. Eldar are out I'm afraid.
