    Default Only War: A hero's welcome IC

    How could this happen? It's only been three years since we left. Col. Riche' walked with since of urgency he had not displayed since his promotion to Col. What is high command thinking? Is it a test? Surly they know best. As he walked down the corridor of the newly constructed Imperial Palace of Korhall, he was flanked by two figures, one a woman in her mid 30's wearing the uniform of a commissar, the other an older balding man near his first century.

    "Colonel, we need to talk before you address the me..." the commissar begain, but was swiftly cut off by the Man.

    "No they have a right to know besides, we just received another message a hour ago."

    "What."

    "High command wants us along with the Cadian 99TH to redeploy." His lips shake as he tries to finish the sentence. "to Tarsus." He chokes out.

    The Trio continue down the hallway towards the parade ground where the Regiment was standing at attention along side their vehicles. There where rumors of a redeployment several in the regiment where eager to quote [Stop this bull **** baby sitting.]

    The Colonel reached the stage over looking the assembly of guardsman. Before him stood the Tarsian 187th Armour Calvary Regiment in all its glory. His Murderlators as the men liked to call themselves. He felt a twig of betrayal as he cleared his throat to address them.

    "At ease. Men of 187th, I have the gravest of news. I am at a loss as to how to tell you, but I must all the same. Lord Governor Maucus is dead. We have received word of a rebellion that started shortly after the formation of this Regiment. The Arbites and the PDF have been push over the coarse of the last three years to the space port. Where as we know they hold the line. As of now our homeland has been declared to be in open revolt."

    "GOOD JOKE SIR" a young Captain shouts form the crowd.

    The colonel simply look at him with the saddest of expressions

    "Its a joke guys, ha ah come on. TELL THEM COLONEL."

    "No joke son. We are to be redeployed to quell this rebellion. The troop ships arrives in 48 hours. Officers and NCO's check with your squads and maintain disciple, for now though." The Colonel pauses for a moment as he observes the men, their shocked expressions, the Captain who had spoken earlier collapsed on the ground crying about his wife and child. "Prepare for the worst. Dismissed"

    The assembly quickly deteriorated as the Colonel and his advisers withdrew. The guardsmen walked slowly back to their tents some assisted by their friends. It was a scene many during the garrison mission had seen when guarding refugee camps. The walk of a group of people who had their lives shattered by war.

    "A rebellion? Throne alive..."

    Tycho Cabal can barely comprehend what he just heard. A rebellion? On his home planet? Surely this must be a joke. Looking from left to right, he wondered what everyone else was thinking. Not all of them were from Tarsus Secundus, but they were from the sector...had this supposed "rebellion" become rampant?

    "Fifth squad, on me!" he yelled out, trying not to sound worried or saddened. He had to be strong. For his men, for the regiment...for himself.

    Ugh, What a way to start a day off... first I pull double shooting drills, then I can't get a smoke this morning, now this. Feth me, seems my bad luck may just be becoming a permanent part of me.. Still, seems the sarge is shaken, shouldn't give him any more reason to get rough.

    Stepping out from the line where he had been standing, the wiry Conscript Paxton gives a quick and ever so slightly acceptable under guard regulation salute. His hands shake slightly as he does so.

    Paxton Present, seems we wasted a few weeks going over those maps eh, sir. heh. Sorry, probably not the time for jokes, but just trying to keep the mood up, you heard the captain, were all hoping this is a mix up.

    On our homeworld? How is that possible? He thinks this to himself as he stands at the back of the hall, slightly slackjawed at the news. Feth, I hope Katie is ok, her hab was right by the spaceport. His sister had lived in the hab since before he enlisted, he hoped if something happened, she made it out.

    He notices his hands started shaking a little bit and quickly pulls out a lho stick and lights it to cover the tremor. He digests the news as best he can and waits on news or new orders. That's sure to clear things up, right?

    Shuffling his feet from left to right, Paxton lifts one of his shaking hands to his mouth and coughs politely. um, sir? you don't happen to have any details of this betrayal do you? I mean we all got friends and enemies, I certainly hope its the latter we are going to be fighting.

    Tycho shakes his head.

    None whatsoever, Pax. All I know is we're being rerouted there.

    He shrugs and sighs.

    I don't expect them to give us a particularly warm welcome, either, especially with these on our heads. He points to the Aquilla on his helmet.


    "I expect to be shot down, personally", mutters Faye from a corner, shaking her head. "From one war zone to the next, right?"

    Doing his best to ignore the possibility of their demise, Paxton looks around the milling guardsmen around him. Where could that gunner of his gotten himself too? He'd better keep a keen eye on him, it would suck to get a new gunner and have to do more drills.

    Snow! Where'd you go?

    From the ranks of the guardsmen, a white haired man slowly makes his way towards the group. I'm fine Paxton, just trying to keep up with these nippers here. Private Xanatov at your service, for all it's worth Sargent Cabal.

    "Alright, I guess we'll have to sit and wait for further orders or information. All we know about the situation right now is that it happened."

    Tycho looks around, thinking.

    "I hope everything calms down soon. I don't want to have to shoot anyone from home."

    Hearing the sergeant's words, Paxton lets out a stressed laugh before he can stop himself, I don't know sarge, I can certainly think of a few Ganger Pukes that I wouldn't mind seeing on a battlefield inside the iorns of a tank cannon..

    Gilliam Xanatov shakes his head, Really Paxton, you are a truly crude individual, can't you exercise a little more tact for the feelings of your fellow soldiers. Turning back to the sergeant, he bows his head slightly please excuse the lack of class that my comrade has just displayed to you sir, I assure you he is just as worried as you about his friends and loved ones.

    Aleksandr walks off from where he was standing, seemingly wandering aimlessly into the crowd, coming back a few minutes later talking quietly with Fay. She was a mid five foot woman on the lean-but-still-muscular side with short-cropped blonde hair. "It will be fine, I'm sure. There has to be something." They walk over towards the Sarge.

    Responding, Alek mutters"I hope you're right, Fay. He takes a drag off his lho stick and forces a smile as Fay punches him in the shoulder and gives him a grin. "Any orders Sarge, or is this the point we pack for combat?"

    ((If it's time to pack, he and Fay will go to their footlockers and start getting their things ready, once their stuff is in order, he will find somewhere quieter to talk and go through some of the gak on his mind. Being basically alone is one of his biggest fears and I'm doing a WP test (at a -20, difficult) since he's figuring he's the last one of his family now. His sis was basically a safety net, of sorts, when they were living together. If he fails the test, I'm willingly going to take 1 Insanity and be basically inconsolable with grief/rage/fear for 1d5+1 minutes. Fay, in her optimism, tries her best to talk him through this and attempts a (routine +0) Fel test to talk him through it and take 2 minutes (minimum 1) off the inconsolable time. The insanity is from his world breaking down around him, that will stay, but its a near inconsequential amount.))

    "I'd say this is the point where we pack up for combat. I think I'll join you down at the 'pool, Pax."

    Tycho nods to the other guardsmen and follows Pax to the motor pool. Meanwhile, Faye sits in the corner, shaking her head in disbelief.

    "I hope nobody has any problems with what we're about to do," he mutters to Pax on the way out. "Those renegades've probably already been whipped up into an anti-Emperor frenzy."

    Well sir, I am sure we can put some Fear of the God Emperor into them. Nothing like a big cannon to show someone the error in their ways. As for problems, unless the rebellion offers a kings ransom in pay and a bigger tank I can assure you this volunteer won't go changing sides on ya, nor will any other solider.

    Snow quickly chirps in I feel the same sentiment, though in not nearly the same wording. No one here would dare turn their back on the Emperor. I am sure the arrival of our forces will convince many to give up their arms peacefully. Perhaps some issue of politics was the core of this rebellion, I have never heard of even the most hot-headed noble so bold as to make such threats as open rebellion, but perhaps something has changed in three years.

    Pax walks with the sergeant trying to match his commanders stride, Snow walks between the two doing his best to keep up.

    @blacklight101
    The tent is only about 50m from the parade ground once Aleksandr and Fay are there, they notice that the tent is darker than normal, not the way of light, but the atmosphere almost feels heavy and depressing. There are a few other troopers inside, most either caring on private conversations or simple looking a mementos from home with saddened eyes, but it is easy to find a place out of ear shot.

    @Sahaar and thebothan
    The Motor Poll is about 1km from the parade grounds as your characters approach you see, 4 guards waring the regimental uniform armed with combat shotguns, one of them a man in his 40's wearing corporal bars yells out "WHO GOES THERE"

    Trudging through camp to the tent, Fay following close behind, he gets to his bunk and digs through a small box of mementos from home. Before he gets to the picture of his sister, the Aquila charm she gave him slides out from under an envelope. His breath catches in his throat and he sits heavily on his cot, head falling immediately into his hands. He has seen death, been in a small war, but this hits hard. Mind racing through years of history, he doesn't even notice the tears streaming down his face.

    Dead to the outside world, locked in his own mind, the last bit of security he had outside of his unit has just evaporated, like it wasn't ever there. That last little bit of hope every Guardsman holds onto has just shattered into a thousand, thousand pieces, the one thing he thought no enemy of man could touch is gone. "I... I... There's no way..." He mutters to himself, doing his best- and failing- to maintain some level of control over himself. "H-how? It was fine when we left." Disbelief, sadness, rage, and several other emotions threaten to overwhelm him, and during all this, something inside him breaks just a little bit.

    Fay looks at Aleksandr with sadness in her own eyes. "Its okay Alek I'm sure there will be briefings to explain how and why this happened. You should cheer up, maybe we can go and get a drink at the bar. You know take our minds off the possibility of our loved ones being." She pauses trying not to sob.

    After a few moments, what she said seems to sink in, at least enough for him to get some control back. "Y-yeah, you're right," he says, head still hung low, fishing a Lho stick out of the pack, "a drink couldn't hurt, won't make things any worse." He levers himself off the cot, cups a hand reflexively in front of the lho stick, and lights it. Taking a long, thoughtful drag on the lho stick, he asks Fay to go to the bar and get a drink or two with him, "let's call it one for a successful campaign here and the other for the next deployment, wherever it is," doing his best to shunt the news and emotions to a different part of his brain. He gets up and tries to walk off with more confidence than what he walked in with, but it still comes off as a trudge.

    OOC note: Chitched is the hive dialect equivalent of a similar word in English, but with a b instead of a ch at the start of the word.

    Paxton begrudgingly drops his carbine down next to his sergeant's, Snow does the same.

    Paxton then pulls his ID tags out from underneath his shirt and looks up at the guards If everything's in order I would like to get a quick once over of our tanks, since were loading up and getting out in 48 hours. You know, give the workhorses a once over, make sure thier fueled, supplied and powered up. They still parked where we left em?

    Stumping along on his way to one of the regimental bars Alek fiddles with the charm his sister gave him, tying it at the base of the shoulder stock on his carbine. Head still hung low, he flicks the burnt stub of a lho stick off to the side before he walks in.

    Walking up to the bar and taking a seat near the end, lasgun now straddled between his feet, He speaks up to get the bartender's attention, "Hey, Mikal, two down here," his Thrones hitting the bar before the drinks even got there. "Fay, I think the drinks should be for those lost on Tarsus, at least the first round."

    Fay nods her head, "Yeah, that sounds like a good idea." She plunks herself on the seat beside Alek, leaning her carbine in front of herself against the bar. "It's good to remember them, you know? Good or bad, I think it's what we all want."

    They stay and talk as long as they can, remembering Tarsus as it was before they left, sometimes laughing, sometimes nearly crying. Looking back at it later, they were happy they had the time they did right now, it was a good time to put inner daemons to rest, however temporary. By the end of their drinks, they left a small group laughing with one last anecdote about the Governor, but thinking back, none of them could remember what it was.

    Leaving the bar, he lights a lho stick and walks off back towards his billet, Fay close on his heels infectiously optimistic like nothing was wrong. Alek knew without Fay earlier, that would have been a lot worse for him.
    My opinion and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee at the 7/11, most others want the dollar too :P

    The corporal scans your Id in a smooth motion "You say we move out in 48 hours? Where too? More trouble with the refugees or something."

    He places his and waves to a figure standing in a makeshift guard shack. The gates to the motor pool open.

    Paxton turns away from the guard, even though he's a higher rank he can't bear to answer his questions not now, it's too soon... Instead he simply trudges through the gate into the motor pool, eyes peeled for an attendant or either of his squads vehicles. Snow wordlessly follows his driver, lost in his own thoughts as well.

    "Long story, mate," says Tycho, patting the guard on the shoulder and following Pax inside.

    "We might not even know the whole thing."

    Upon finding the vehicle, Paxton immediately gives it a quick once over for any immediate signs of tampering.

    Then afterwards he double checks the engine and makes sure it has both fuel and energy.

    Then Paxton nervously looks around and turns to his Sargent, So sir, what do you think, how bad is it?

    Tycho shrugs.

    "If they're sending two regiments, it can't be great. Hopefully we'll have some backup from loyal forces…if there are any."

    Wait, one legion and us? And IF any outside legion is there... Emperor above sir, that's a mighty bad picture of what were going into.. But gotta keep looking foreword I suppose, to the real business then, I asked you here sir to request my position for the coming battle. I should drive the Chimera, and Snow will be my gunner. Just don't feel comfortable driving that fuel filled convoy, give me something with a big gun, and a roomy cockpit. The Hellhound is an easy drive, and the Chimera needs a lighter touch and a lead foot.

    Tycho nods.

    Heck, I'm sure it will, do you have any questions about the vehicles? Otherwise I am afraid I have another request to make, I need your approval on a change of equipment form.

    I am interested in switching out my main weapon to the Combat Shotgun, since I am not trained in the use of a Lasweapon yet, otherwise I am ready to skip to combat time, after I go and pack up my stuff. I don't have a good reason yet to try and smuggle goods in our chimera.. though that would have been fun
