    unknown. Some unknown fleet attacked the transport fleet ferrying you all towards the spinward front. Some say it was orks, others claim it was heretics, others that it was Dark Eldar. No one knows, or at least none of you knows.

    Ahh it was to deploy against the initial outerlying Severan Dominate Seccessionist forces. So, Seccessionist was the enemy. Not chaos or heretics anything like that. Just regular human forces that had secceeded from the Imperium as a whole.

    They are rejecting the current imperial overlords.
    There's a difference, in that they are not touched by a heretical faith or anything like that. they just cut themselves from the Imperium.

    Well I've had a bunch of stuff come up in my other online games and irl group, so this game would be one too many to balance; so I'm bowing out. Have fun everyone!

    ok just to save space and to look for it I will post the updated back story here. (So we can pick it apart easier and will put the final version on the sheet.)

    Robertus, Edmund Blackadder was born to a very rich merchant family, they are very close to nobility. Where he was Born as the second son trained as the second son for war. Where as the firstborn was the pampered Prince. With his younger brothers being treated worse.

    In the PDF He was an officer. The main reason the is now a normal Grunt Guardsman was because of he name. and they are thinking that it was something that was something bought and paid for, by his merchant dynasty. He will have to earn his rank form the bottom like everyone else.
    When a day later he was shown the report of his older brother’s and fathers’ death, and that his younger brother will become Lord Blackadder. There was no response other then a saying “Cleaver Basterd.”

    When it came to one of the exercises, he did show some leadership under fire. When a heavily armoured servitor he quickly recognised it as hostile as the targeting light came on. He ordered everyone to find cover and take it down. little did he know that they could not with there weapons and the tough armour of the servitor.

    The Regiment (along with 2 others) were on a transport ship, approaching a planet when under attack by some other space-vessels that is officially stated as 'unknown', at least for the menial guardsman. The campaign on the planet itself for harsh cuz harsh losses from a lot of people not reaching relief-escape pods or the transport carriers before the transport ship was cored out and more or less turned into a drifting, dead, hulk. With the regiment going form 750K in solders down to 600K.

He ordered everyone to find cover and take it down. little did he know that they could not with there weapons and the tough armour of the servitor.

    When the ship carrying the regiment was hit "Fox company" Was about to start a Thermospheric Dropped. As they realised that the attack on a bunker to take out a trench line that has been the hindrance of the Imperial Guard was started and how no hope of regimental reinforcements. But the mission was simple: Hold until relieved.

    The drop had caught the rebels by surprise as the trench line was being shelled by artillery. and only stoping mear moments before the company had started slowing there decent. with only light flack starting up on them. As they landed and breached the command bunker. Starting a one and a half days of brutal close quarters and in some cases hand to hand fighting in the bunker. For a while he as an acting sergeant. A pitty that commissar that promoted him was later KIA. With Fox company having 98% casualties before they were relieved. Robertus himself was wounded shot twice and had a combat knife put through his hand.

    He along with the survivers of fox company was merged into other companies and has over the year. He is also back to being guardsmen. As his new squad already has one. He viewed it as a temery promotion. easly given and removed. As he hopes his next mission will have better results. But he is happy that he is with his surviving squadmate, Luna.
    No Fox company, for one. also there's stil la few typos around, but eh, I get the gist of it. The companies are stated as per 1st company, 2nd, etc. etc. There's circa. 500k-750k Guardsmen in an average, freshfounded regiment. With overall losses to the regiment, currently the regiment is at near 600k from the rather heavy losses of over 100k Guardsmen not being able to get off of the transport ship prior to it's destruction.
    There's on average 12 companies in a regiment. 10 regular ones, 1 is comms & supply, and 1 is the Command Company where most leadership of the regiment is found. This will vary tho, depending on the regiment type, format, specialties, etc.

    The Regiment (along with 2 others) were on a transport ship, approaching a planet when under attack by some other space-vessels that is officially stated as 'unknown', at least for the menial guardsman. The campaign on the planet itself for harsh cuz harsh losses from a lot of people not reaching relief-escapepods or the transport carriers before the transport ship was cored out and more or less turned into a drifting, dead, hulk.

    But that's just about all I can see that I'd like to point out.


    Also everyone, sorry about the constant nitpicking. I just get very OCD about it all when something isn't done right in accordance to how my brain wants it
    Don't take it personal, just let me know if I get too nitpicky.

    Headsup everyone, there's a lot of brownouts with the network in my area of Denmark currently. It's causing issues with anything from watching a youtube clip, to get onto Giantitp.

    I hope this actually gets posted this time....
    If it does, do know that I'm trying to check through all the charactersheets a final time to give a last checkup on how the status is for all your characters. Just unable to really get network functions at all.

    Small update now that I can do so from my mom's laptop.

    The retards laying new asphalt on the road outside haven't fixed the cut cables yet so it'll be a few more days before I can even begin to check everyone's charactersheets.

    Same for me actually, with work.

    Extremely busy weekend and still spotty internet. I do appreciate everyone's patience with me and all that.
