Deathwatch Reborn
« on: September 29, 2009, 08:50:10 AM »
Hey all I'm planning a Deathwatch series so I'm looking for recruits

naturally I want marines from any chapter even your own just bare in mind that if your own chapters are used we need to know a bit about said chapter

I'm also open to the idea of librarians, chaplains and apothecaries as I've always seen the recruitment of the deathwatch to be more akin to 1 or 2 in every 100 deathwatch is a specialist in the above field which gives the watch it's flexibility

so anyone interested?

The Deathwatch so far

Brother Captain Demos Fannell – Me - Blood Templars
Brother Captain Corvin – Corvin - Ultramarines
Brother Sergeant Matej Rant – Koval - Iron Hands
Brother-Sergeant Simion - Discy - Sons of Oblivion
Tactical Sergeant Martell Alexandros - Simeon Blackstar - Paladins Benevolent
Brother Artos Corglich - Swarbie - Destroyers
Hunrik The Lone Knight - Heroka Vendile - Knights Pacificus / Deathwatch
Brother Lucian Kraven - Hedgewise - The Vanguard
Brother Tane Laran - Kallidor - The Prophets of Hatred
Pride Leader Peleus - Inquisitor Ranovack - Persian Lions

With the possibilities of

Brother Librarian Morael Phaldor - Macabre

Sound intriguing.

How would you feel about my using a character from the Paladins Benevolent custom chapter?  It was an order I was considering for my true-scalers where the Marines fit the 'remorseful warrior' stereotype rather than the raging bezerkers or stone-cold gunners they tend to be in the classic chapters.  Obviously though, while they regret that killing is necessary, they're still very good at it.  ;)

Sounds good Necris. Hmm, I've used a Mentor Legion Elite Cadre warrior as a Deathwatch character in the past but since you've mentioned DIY chapters I have a hankering to use one of my own Prophets of Hatred. I'll have to have a good think on this, what do you reckon Necris?

Simeon - Sounds good give us some more details on the chapter maybe an inquisitorial report type think (I'm doing this for one of the Characters I'll be using) including your character of course.

Kallidor - Again the same

Hedgewise - Welcome aboard give us some details about your marine what are they specialised at their attitude etc etc

This will more than likely develop into several missions rather than a one off (at least I hope it does) plotting a tour of service so to speak

Anyway I'll bang up the profile for your Captain to be soon

Very well. Shall I do a Salamander? Or would you mind if I did a member of my home-made chapter, the Destroyers?

Oh, the agony of choice.

If I did a marine from the Destroyers, what information would you like to know about the chapter?

Durandal is a Sternguard veteran marine and has served the chapter for over 137 years recently fighting in the 13th Black Crusade. He was seconded into the Deathwatch during an engagement where an Imperial Fist contingent he was part of repelled a Tyranid assault in which Durandal and his squad held the centre from all comers and even felled a Carnifex with calm volleys of Hellfire and Kraken bolter rounds. Durandal suffered multiple wounds and needed his right leg and left arm replaced with bionics after the battle.

His armour is an adaptation of the current Mk VIII suit and an ancient Mk IV “Maximus” suit. The majority of the upper suit is from the Mk IV including the helmet while the lower portion is taken directly from a Mk VII.

He uses a standard Astartes MK Vb Godwyn pattern Bolter in combat along with a hand-and-a-hand powered broadsword (a keepsake from his time as a tactical squad sergeant).

Hows that?

Ventriss - Yes is would be too much a chaplin is fine but I doubt the Dark Angles would send one of their interrogators in a month of Sundays as for details what I really need is

Name
Chapter
Rank in Chapter
Personal Quirks
Armament
Any Deeds of Note

Also if one of your own chapters a brief description of their Combat Doctrine, their beliefs, their structure (are they codex or non codex chapters), Any traits that would need to be mentioned (Heavily into bionic like the Iron Hands, vampires like blood angles, other mutations in their gene seed etc etc) and friction or allegence with other chapters 

I'll  start with

Name - Demos Fannell
Chapter - Blood Templars
Rank in Chapter - First Captain, Blood Guard
Personal Quirks - Demos has a curt temperament he has shown open scorn and distaste for the Inquisitorial overseers and those who disrupt his quiet reserve the only individual he seemingly tolerates is the Chapter Serf he brought with him when he rejoined the Deathwatch for his current tour 
Armament - Equipped with a master crafted bolt pistol, powerfist, and .998 Godwyn pattern Bolter with extended magazine
Any Deeds of Note - Captain Demos has served no less that fifteen tours with the Deathwatch somewhat a veteran and man of myth he is a fearless warrior leading daring raids against enemy numbers that greatly exceed his own forces, most noted of his Deathwatch deeds is the purging of the Agriworld Salieth which defected to the Tau empire, his task force met heavy resistance against a well dug in force yet under Demos' careful planning their command cadre allowed themselves to be ambushed and wiped out, lost of their command the Tau forces were cleansed by Imperial Guard reserves under Demos command. 

The Blood Templars
Combat Doctrine - The Blood Templars are above anything hunters, predators trained in harsh conditions against prey that is easily a match for their predatory nature, a blood templar is a master stalker driving and luring their pray into a perfect ambush where they are utterly crushed in a single bloody and violent action carried out by methodical killers, for behind their calm exterior resolve lies a cunning master of death. 

Organisation - The Blood Templars do not follow Standard Codex practices their chapter is divided into Six Clans of varying numbers as each Clan recruits and trains it's own scout units meaning that one clan can be larger than the next, each Clan is commanded by a Clan Master (or Blood Father) who acts as a Lord of the Chapter second only too the Grand Master (The Blood King) Each Clan Brother lives and grows in his Clan all schools of combat are nurtured within the clan but they each aspire to move beyond the Clan's into the ranks of the Blood Guard the elite of the chapter and the Grand Masters Personal Guard, each one of the Blood Guard is a hero of legend within the chapter and they stand aside from the rest of the chapter organisation given freedom to come and go as they please within the Clans seconding themselves to actions as they see fit, of all the marines only the Grand Master has the right command them as a single force. It is common for the Blood Guard to leave the chapter and Join external forces such as the Deathwatch and many take the watch several times in their lifetime to better hone their skills of warfare.

Beliefs and Practices -   The Blood Templars follow the ritual of Blooding prior to any conflict in which they spill their blood slaking the worlds thrist for it and pledging that no more of their blood shall be spilled in the battle to come, they also share the blood of their brothers in a ritual called The Bonding, at the same time as the Blooding the marine will add his blood to a chalice passed round mixing his blood with that of his brothers, once this is one they all drink of the cup sharing in the combine mix, in this way they ensure that should they fall during battle their spirits live on in their brothers and their strength will be with them in the battle.

Notable Traits - The Blood Tempars have prominent fangs giving them a vampiric appearance but unlike their Blood Angle cousins they do not thirst for blood instead they are the cunning predators that stalk the dark places, the eyes of some marines have been reported to change to a burning red in the thick of battle.

Relations with other Chapters - The Blood Templars have a good relationship with the Crimson Fists for they share a common trait with one another, both Chapters have been brought to the brink of ruin and survived the Blood Templars are a shattered Chapter only a few strong yet their resolve to rebuild is something the Crimson Fists can relate too, The Chapter has also had violent run ins with the Nigh[EXCOMMUNICATE]ch and Mentors Chapters with open threats of hostility towards both being issued, their current Grand Master has also come to Blows with commanders of the Ultramarines and Salamanders leading to some tensions existing regarding slurred honour.

There we go your Captain

Although it was Lord_Kessedor who ran Winter War and the unfortunately abandoned Devoid of Life on the ol' 'clave, are you planning the same continuity of storyline?

Hunrik (The Lone KnightTM) might make a return even if such is not the case, afterall, he is kinda stuck with the Deathwatch until whenever he dies.
It's all fun and games until someone shoots their own guy with a Graviton gun instead of the MASSIVE SPIDER.

*surfaces from a lake of beer*

Although I've primarily moved over to 40KOnline (currently using Deathwatch, funnily enough), I'm happy to do some stuff back here as well.

I will dredge something out of the malty depths soon enough; I'd wanted to use an Iron Hand over in my other work, but I wanted a killteam of five and I filled my quota very quickly with other Chapters (disturbingly, the Iron Hand's slot went to a Blood Raven...) so I'll contribute an Iron Hand.

---


Name: Matej Rant

Chapter: Iron Hands

Rank in Chapter: Brother-Sergeant /  junior Techmarine

Personal Quirks: For Rant, efficiency equals devotion, and yet there is always an imbalance which he strives to correct. As a result, Rant is rarely ever seen doing nothing, even to the extent that entire Warp journeys are spent in the company a Mechanicus adept and surrounded by dismantled weapons and armour. A perhaps unfortunate side-effect is that efficiency is also an incredible source of amusement, and although this has not diminished Rant's fighting ability in combat, he is unsettlingly jolly for an Iron Hand outside of the battlefield.

Armament and Equipment: Mk.II "Thunderclap" straight-mag bolter, equipped with M.40 scope and Stalker-pattern silenced shells. Bionic right arm with implanted electoo inductor and localised potentia coil. Sanctified toolbox and hallowed lubricant gels. Standard issue Mk.VII Eagle armour.

Any Deeds of Note: After becoming separated from the Iron Hands 3rd Company on Tuhul Secundus, in northern Segmentum Tempestus, Squad Rant managed to rejoin their battle-brothers after fulfilling their original objective without any support. Initially sent to break the back of a hrud infestation, Rant managed to single-handedly take out a leader specimen and lead his squad back to the rest of 3rd Company, the ten Iron Hands breaking through the enemy warren network and scoring some two hundred kills between them with no reported casualties. For his success against the alien threat, and his composure and resolve in the face of adversity, Rant was transferred to the Deathwatch for a ten-year tour of duty at the request of Inquisitor Eliesa Schwertwald and the now-deceased Deathwatch Captain Zajdel, although it was the same Inquisitor that requested Rant's present situation to become more permanent following Abaddon's Black Crusade. Rant also has formal training as a Techmarine and has completed his thirty years on Mars, but rarely studied under the Iron-Fathers due to near-constant deployment, and does not have the experience of some of his peers.

What kind of post by post time scale are you looking at Necris? I'm somewhat tempted to dust off Librarian Morael Phaldor again...
