    August 15th
    Fall of 646 ,

    We find ourselves at Sylvia with a handful of our forces. Stationed in the halls of a rather undernoted academy. Gustav meanwhile attended to the defense of Heaven's gate while we pick off what's left.

    The people of Sylvia took well to our presence, but in their hearts stirred a misgiving for their own lot. Between us and the soldiers however was an understanding, they didn't want the war on their doorstep.

    And yet there it was,

    A kashirn fortress was collapsed right before our eyes, and it was not going to leave anytime soon.
    Inside maybe soldiers, a deathgod and maybe even Hassan. But one thing is sure, we have the place surrounded, and no one will be getting out of there for a while.

    From here we can coordinate projects to our base at Heavens Gate, and the people of this ragnyll are also willing to lend their aid thanks to the 13th Unit providing much needed cushion for diplomacy.

    Adding to our ranks of the dead are the Haunts , deployable through a corpsier.

    Ghosts may be called and summoned for the price of 4 terror through a Corpsier logistic attachment or may be sired for 1 terror from a deceased soldier.

    Possession rules:
    When a Haunt possesses a target, said target must make general eye contact to the Haunt's direction.

    Using prank allows the otherwise invisible haunt to possess an INAMINATE object and make it perform a single action.
    > Guns fire , Tanks roll forward, Doors open, bells ring etc.

    The function of this is to generate terror or cause unease to their victims

    When a haunt possesses an individual, they may make them act is if [botting] that unit. They cannot however engage in acts that would directly hurt their host as Haunts are rather receptive of their possee's experience. The shock of pain or death may even undo them, in fact and Haunts will disengage from their targets as soon as this becomes a certainty.

    Haunts may also choose to make their possessees act during Enemy Phase.

    The only way to repel or fight a haunt, is to simply unmask their presence by shining a light source on them if a shadow is revealed- a Haunt maybe fired upon and defeated in this manner, so be careful of searchlights, twitchy patrolmen, or even windows.

    The acquisition of these developments have allowed us not only the ability to attach
    [AP] - Armor Plates [armor only]
    [DR] - Destroy rounds [one time use, projectile weapons only]

    but it has also allowed our officers the ability to confer tactical bonuses to their units. The training programming has also allowed for increased sight range +2 and range +1 to be possible with diligent training.

    Kraus walks down the main hall of the little academy, craning her neck to look at the building. To anyone else, it would be a fairly simple place not worth much comment, but to her it had massive ceilings, gorgeous tile floors, and elaborate trimmings like she'd never seen before. Wearing nothing more on her chest than the bandages covering the wounds she took, she exits the building, taking a moment to feel the warm summer air on her skin. Stalking behind the academy to the stables, she looks for the ritter Elfriede.

    "Hey, that was some impressive stuff you did back there, hacking up that bitch's whole arm from wyvernback! You really are somethin' else. I'm inspired to pick up a sword to be by your side, but then I figure who would be left patch up your mount?" she says with a playful smile "Do you think maybe I could ride one of your wolves, though? That way I could at least keep up with you while you tear across the battlefield"

    At the head of Iceheart's quarters was a box.

    Various ammo crates of dosiers and financial forms inside.

    At the bottom of the third crate was the semi automatic holster and all. It smelled vaguely of coffee before the musk of old wood overpowered it.

    It was strange being this close to the ground again.

    Iceheart holds the gun close, almost cradling it, trying to catch that fleeting scent one more time.

    She wasn't sure how she should feel, with Beatrix treating this so coldly, almost dismissively. It felt like she had fucked up even further, by not handling things differently, by not confronting the Marshal herself.

    Knowing that you will most likely die does a lot to bring you closer to a character. A person is born from their struggles, and here in Ironhearts, all we have our our struggles. Most of the time we start with very little in the way of character, because we know they could get hit by a mortar shell on the first turn. But just that little seed grows with every mission when they do survive. Every bullet whizzing by their head, every wound that they survive, every comrade they see fall, is like water upon a tree, making it thrive and grow tall. In between the spaces, those breaks before you face the possibility of the chopping block once more, you connect to your fellow soldiers, and expand upon yourself. We start with nothing, and slowly create the cast you see today.

    The ones you see in this thread with the similar portraits, those are npc's. This is a cutscene, of sorts, you see. Deathmarshal, and anyone with those portraits is the DM. Anyone else is a player. Players will often take these non-combat threads to interact with each other, or simply type out fluff, soldiers worries and ponderings. There isn't a whole lot of that yet in this thread, because it is very late, and most people are burnt out from the battle.

    If you want to join, you could even do so right now, or at the next battle. There is always room for more, whether you know they plot or not. After all, the average soldier doesn't know the exact history of their battalion. You can read the 1d4chan page, too, for more information.

    So yes, I suppose we all made it up as we go along. But isn't that how you, as a human were made? We all start as blank slates as children, and over time, we become the wonderful and complex people we are today.

    >spend fifty experience points to requisition Norse Friend

    It takes some time for the doktor's cheerful greeting to process in Elfriede's sleeping mind. Finally, she opens one eye, searching for the source of the voice, and lifts her head from where it was previously pillowed by her white wolf's flank to aid her search. Once spotting the playfully smiling doktor, she opens her other eye, blinks, and springs to her armored feet to address her.

    "It is good to see you alive, doktor. I had thought you dead, which is, for obvious reason, a failure of a thought. I recognize my failing and therefore, will be sure to correct it."

    Elfriede turns to the giant white wolves resting on the floor behind her and after a moment spent silently exchanging inquiring glances with them, beckons one over.

    She turns back to the doktor as the giant white wolf she summoned from the ranks pads up and settles beside her.

    "Consider your request granted as my thanks to you." Elfriede indicates the white wolf at her side, "She shall be your companion henceforth."

    Burkhard over the course of the day, and the week learnt two things. Maybe three. Fire is really painful, hospitals are not all they are cracked up to be, and there must be some manner of god because he was very sure for the most part that he was dead. Apparently not, despite the fact that he vividly remembered the ground exploding in front of him and bathing him and Fredrick in fire he woke up some time later, in a fullbody cast, in a hospital

    "This was a terrible idea." Chided Fredrick, in a similar suituation to Burkhard. "Why did I even listen to you when you wanted us to drive foward"
    "How is this my fault?"
    "I'm in a full body cast, and it hurts to move, I would slap you if I could though."
    Burkhard sighed "Cool yourself down Fredrick. We are alive and not permenantly crippled, that is better then any of the alternatives."
    "What, you mean other then not in a hospital for third degree burns. How can you even make light of this suituation?"
    "I was a mortician Fredrick. I learnt to count my blessings in the face of death and its an ability I savor to this day. Morbid humour as it were. Speaking of which, we probably need a new Hydra. The old one broke"
    "Understatement of the year. Dya think we get promotions for this?"

    Assassins were the underpinning factors to Voss succession lines. As shadowy groups, a few represented the strong wills and codes of their clan while others moved to the force of the coin.

    Nevertheless, their method of working is the same. Swift, effecient, and above all else faultless. Assassins end the lives of many untouchable people and can spare the courtesy to claim credit for it, or implicate uninvolved parties entirely.

    To become an assassin, spend an NCA to contact the head of any of these shadowy groups and request an initiation , a test, or perhaps insult them. Either way the result is that their operatve will surely appear during the next battle, and end your life there.

    It is your job to pass this test by succeeding this would-be assassin's title. Good luck.

    Hey, I like roleplaying, 'tis fun.

    Hmm... I presume dark/grim german names are the style we're going for? Also, what unit designations are there? And how do you tripcode? (Yeah, I'm relatively new to participating in stuff here, mostly just been lurking.)

    As for character... Tempted to make him an amnesiac, recovered unconscious off a battlefield with a head wound and only recently awoken. Got his name off his dogtags. Amnesia is cliche, sure, but it'd be useful to have an IC explanation for gaps in my own knowledge until I can get caught up.

    For those who are new, you can check out the 1d4chan page for Ironhearts at: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Iron_Hearts (still being edited), or feel free to join the IRC channel #skirmishquest on the Rizon IRC network.

    The most basic requirements to play are the type of unit, a name, and a trip to make sure you keep control of your character. I've included the different stat sheets for the infantry units utilized by the Voss Royal Guard. Officers have really long gibberish tags, so unless you want to play one don't be intimidated by, for example, my designation. Usually they're much simpler, like [R1] or similar.

    [R1] Sdt. Dudemchammerchest##Iamthebest

    The part after ## in the Name field becomes encrypted and has a specific output after the name (it's a bunch of gibberish characters, you can see it after everyone else's names).

    ^That, as well as understanding your unit card, is all that's really necessary. Well, other than actually attending the battle.

    > Ibonyte shares are inadequate. Either procure more mass quantities of Ibonyte comparable to a small nation, limit the size of of Armed forces or reserve use of ibonyte for Ascending Armor pilots as this would be a statistically feasible consideration.

    Your unit designation ([CO1]) goes into the "Name" field when you post, as does your name (SSgt. von Claude) and your trip (##password, where password = a phrase of your choosing); the full thing should look like:

    [K] Sdt. Newguy##password

    all in the Name field. To roll dice, you put "dice+Xd10" without quotes into the E-mail field, replacing the X with the number of dice you want to roll. See also:

    >> Anonymous 03/28/12(Wed)03:08 No.18485597

    See the first few lines of
    How to roll dice is on the front page, where you put:


    into the email field, where x is the number of dice you're going to be rolling.

    Tags are determined by specified class and alternate loadout. Name is anything you really want to be. Again, see the new player guide referenced earlier.

    >> Indonesian Gentleman 03/28/12(Wed)03:08 No.18485599
    To create name and trip, put your name on the name field, and then add a pound sign (#) and a password. So it looks like so:
    Yourname #yourpassword

    To roll, type dice+XdY in the e-mail field, where x is the number of dice and y is the number of sides the dice has. here in IH we use d10s, so for example you want to roll 3 d10s, type these in your e-mail field:

    As for the number of dice you need to roll, it depends on your unit type and weapon. For example, Kriegers has burst machineguns which is described with 5x3 in their unit card, right? That means you have to roll 3 dice per soldier in your unit, and if the dice indicates a number below 5 then that shot hits the target.

    The Ragnyll faction started to look a little too badass
    so a lot of dwarfing and messing with proportions had to happen in order for them to match the Voss spriting style.

    However unique characteristics of each soldier was necessary and Ragnyll tends to place a bit more importance to their individual units- as they are an army driven on the principles of civic duty as opposed to the will of the collective.

    Ideas for heads are welcome : >
    >> [SCRB][M] Sgt. Paisley !!RXDkJssl8v6 03/29/12(Thu)01:17 No.18497373

    Here's my thoughts: by default, the head could be quite bland looking--maybe come up with a series of 3 heads--helmetless w/ hair, helmetless without hair, and helmeted. The first design should have a measure of asexualtiy--that is to say, indistinguishable if the gender is male or female. Specialized heads can be made further on, to account for squadmate's gender or general appearance.

    Ideally, the heads are crafted in such a manner that they can easily be mixed and match on sprite bodies.

    Sergent Tao rolls into the medical tent in an Iron Skull the size of a small dog, the tank's mouth opens and closes as he speaks,
    "Soldat Burkehard I would recommend against antagonizing both professional Assassins and inferring you are more competent without your tank than Huntress Elizabet. Despite her reputation as a loner she is an efficient and and lethal killer. I have no illusions that she could kill you in that bed and make it look like one of Hassan's men snuck into the camp."

    He then rolls over to the nearest medical officer and asks for some form of breath mint, citing the taste of souls as "akin to chewing on dirt and old cheese."

    "Well, think of it this way, you can be alive and piloting that tank, die, make a deal with the fey lords and death, come back to life as a head with no body and spend the rest of eternity fighting for Von Voss as a Dullahan! Or piss off an assassin and a Royal Hunter and end up dead in a hospital bed. If you like the first option come talk to me in a few battles and I'll see what I can set up for you."

    =If Tanks could Talk=

    Fran wheels up to the motorpool, currently a tin-roofed warehouse that stabbed sunlight through its rusted cracks. There at the center, covered in a verdant glow was the Beetl, dominating the interior and parked partially outside.

    Fran looks the Iron beast up and down, closer she approaches and before holding a hand up to it, she looks to Alfie who gives only a nod.

    There was a cool yellow glow, and both the armor and the querent were wrapped in some moonlit aura. Fran's eyes closed the whole time, and then....

    " Alfie ? " Fran starts. A turn and a smile. Squeeks from the wheels
    "Y- Yes ? "
    " You shouldn't be so shy, " Fran recites , "Axel would hate to see you cooped up in that machine. "
    " B- BUT Does that mean - "
    " He's watching over you right now, " Fran gives a knock at the hollow door. A cold wheeze could be heard, " And he says, he'll never - "

    A hatch opens.

    A woman in white hair emerges from the machine.
    " That name, " Alfie says determinidely "Tell me that name again ! "

    > Beetl's name is Axel. Or so it claims.

    Iron Hats
    This basic helmet was worn during the wars that formed Voss. Though crude, they stand the test of time and are thought of as a family treasure to be passed down from one living relative to another. It is said that the 4th owner of everyone Ironhelmet is watched over by their ancestors to ensure that they live to continue their legacy.

    Elephant Guns=
    Thought to be too brutal for use against Infantry, the the ELephant gun was designed to take down Kashir Riding Elephants with one to two shots. However the bullet's size and calibre has led to the gun being unwieldy and difficult to aim, resulting in a slim effective range. However when braced against something, and given proper vantage points, Kriegers can lance oncoming threats, nipping them at the bud right away. The Krieger overwatch does not waste rounds, however it will no fire if all rounds are expended.

    Alfie sat atop her Beetl tank, in deep thought over what Fran had told her about it. Was Axel's spirit really inside of it? It seemed a bit far fetched, but then again, she was fighting in an army that regularly employed ghouls, midians, werewolves, and a whole host of other supernatural creatures in combat. Plus, there was no way Fran could have known about Axel. He had "died" well before the Sylvia missed.

    Still, things started add up when she thought about it, like how the tank operated just as smoothly as it had ever been, despite the fact that it was only her manning the controls now, how the engine seemed to respond in just the right way, and how the cannon would always seem to make a subtle, last minute adjustment on its own.

    She was still a bit skeptical, but this Beetl had been with her for years, fighting alongside her in almost every battle yet. Even if her brother's spirit wasn't in it, the tank itself could be considered family as well.

    Some time later, if anybody happened to take a glance at the Beetl, they would notice something different. Stenciled on the side of the tank in very neat, white letters was the word "Axel".

    However field medics find a considerably easier time using iron soluble ibonyte pastes to seal fatal wounds in an instant and so their revival rating increases by 1. As a safety warning, all patients must hydrate immediately as some may not take well to Ibonyte entering in the blood stream.

    Iceheart sits in her quarters, her back against the door. It may be locked, but she wanted to be sure no one barged in.

    One hand nurses a nasty looking bruise on her abdomen, the other holds her sidearm, the stock discarded on the ground beside her. Somberly she goes through the motions of loading, releasing the slide, ejecting the magazine, then racking the slide and listening to plink of the round hitting the floor.

    She repeats this over and over again, like clockwork, trying to figure out just what the hell she was thinking. How could she earn back the Marshal's respect now.

    And why, why did she see herself in Beatrix's eyes, her reflection completely lifeless. Is that what she meant, by 'what she has to see everyday'? Those under her command dying?

    The captain raises her sidearm, staring down the iron sight.

    Oh Voss, what the hell was she doing...

    Looks like there are two entrances--I'm assuming those dark-red areas. We secure those, we should be able to secure entrance into the temple.

    Some things to take note of are the high towers and lots of windows. Keep your wits about you; we could be in for a lot of sniper fire and artillery--anything from machine guns to cannons.
