“The Krieger Corp is the life for me,
A gun, a bed and a grave for free.
That’s my lot in the Black Company.”


It took the Earth 10 long years to die. Like every planet afflicted by the pervasive sentient plague that swept the galaxy at the turn of the 23rd century, aptly named The Rot, Earth’s demise was slow and agonising at first then violent and sudden by the end. The seas boiled and the air turned to ash in the wake of the continent-shattering orbital bombardments that cleansed her and a hundred other worlds.

20 years later, the dust of the Purification Wars has settled and the surviving xenos empires have finished carving up the remaining colonies of those less fortunate races between them, including those few left from Earth’s initial phase of expansion. Just rewards for the victorious alien’s part in saving the galaxy. The surviving human population, once many billions, now numbers in the mere millions. An entire race of refugees, vagrants and backwater outcasts begging, stealing and labouring as second-class citizens, servants or slaves under uncaring alien masters.

A lifetime of backbreaking work for stale recycled oxygen units and a handful of credits is the best fate most humans can hope for. Little wonder then that the violent but lucrative life of a mercenary holds such appeal. As the novelty of peace wears off and the rival alien nations rattle their sabres once more, human mercenaries are in high demand for their crude effectiveness and affordable prices.

And of all the human mercenary firms, there are none so infamous and so highly sought after as the services of the Black Company…

+++XENO QUOTE OF THE DAY+++

“Never in all my decades of service to the Federation have I encountered such a motley crew of undisciplined louts. I swear by the Sunken Islands they actually -enjoy- the risk and chaos of their bloody profession. I find it hard to believe they held the line with the Second Legion at Saratoga, but my men aren’t the sort who exaggerate their reports. See that they are paid in full, Lieutenant. And then get them out of my sight.” -General Kirx of the Drax Republican Guard

*blurgh*

You stare at your treacherous reflection with bloodshot eyes, the next wave of puke subsiding for the moment. You’re not angry at your reflection without good reason, this state of misery you’re currently experiencing is entirely self-inflicted.

”Never again.” A lie. Not the first lie you’ve told yourself, and certainly not the last. In fact, you are fairly certain you tell the same fib towards the end of each and every term of shore-leave. But this time you mean it. Really. Next shore leave you get, you’re going to have a quiet you’re your reflection stares at you doubtingly. “Frag you, I mean it…”

You’re going to take it easy, you’re going to keep your act together and next time you won’t get so crazy with the….

>Hard drugs. Heartcracker pills, Voidlift tabs and Synthezene injections. Too bloody much. Next time you’re going clean. At most you’re going to maybe dabble with a puff of Voidleaf or two but no more than that. [Junkie]

>Strong Liquor. Savis-brand Rum, Whitelake vodka distilled from real potato and genuine Cradle Whiskey. You can’t keep emptying every human alcoholic drink you come across. Maybe just a beer or two with the squad, but that’s it. [Alcoholic]

>High-stakes Gambling. Did you really have to bet on whether that Drax bouncer had a tramp stamp? No. You were basically throwing money away at that point. Next time you’re not going to roll the dice so much, or at least do it in a licensed venue. [Gambler]

Alright lads and ladettes, I am delighted to see a few of you here already. This vote will remain open for 24 hours, if you want to particpate in chargen please vote in that time frame! Future votes will require you to link back to your initial first vote to be valid (regardless of whether your id has changed). This autism-lite should be reasonable enough to keep the samefag scourge at bay whilst not making it too difficult to participate.

I've missed you beautiful bastards.

I'd love to run a dedicated couple of days to hashing out a character, but the reality is my work commitments make that a very unlikely. That said, I will endevour to always provide an update at a rate of once-per-day around this time each day. If I'm not going to be able to provide an update that day I will let you guys know no later than 22:00 AEST on any given days.

I'll be hanging around in this thread and posting from my phone, happy to answer any questions best I can or even just have a chat. I hope you have all been doing well since we took a break from StV.

I will always be open to write-ins assuming they get popular support, even for chargen. That said, I reserve my QM veto right in extremis.

I want to hear what a plantbro has to say.
It feels like Christmas. Glad to have you back Forgotten, you always make good shit. I'm not expecting this quest to be nearly as bright and shiny as Sworn to Valor, but by God, I will do my best to make sure that we don't end with so many "high notes" as BCQ. The only trait that I really want in chargen is strong care for the men. The rest in negotiable, but I will keep arguing no matter how big a faggot i'm being until the end. Even alien members. We may hate aliens(except turtle and plant bros as the only time they fucked us over was unintentionally and they were fucked up for it as well), but I would still like us to care for(if gruffly) our token ayy.

>>Kroll

>>4627706
High stakes gambling will probably cosy us our life.

You can easily be a functional addict. Especially with stimulant addictions.

Meanwhile gambling addicts tend to lose everything *repeatedly*.

At least with being a Junkie, there's the challenge of balancing out your highs and periods of effectiveness with the lows and withdrawl.

Meanwhile gambling is deffo going to be putting our lives in the dice, totally out of our control, which is the worst of ideas.

I was merely pointing out one way it could be dealt with. I can be fine with being an alcoholic, as there are plenty of ways to get or make alcohol. Its more difficult to get certain drugs. Many civilizations of mankind have developed an increased resistance to alcohol, unlike other drugs. Alcohol damage mostly focuses on the liver, which can regrow from just a significant portion. Other drugs can have more spread out damage or damage that is harder to heal.
You make good points, but I like to think that we could manage gambling well enough, though I wouldn't mind the alcoholism. Just so long as we don't become a drug addict.

>He starts the negociations by bringing to the table strategic agreements and the signing of commercial treaties on behalf of his employer, very tense scene.
>We cut him off.

I want us to do better then Prince, just not that way. I want more of our people to survive, and without being dead of mind and soul. At least we will have a variety of clients, so we wont be stuck with objective evil guy. We will be in conflicts were we will be the bad guys, but before we die in en explosion, get ripped to pieces or become a monster, I want us to at least left some positive mark. I'm a softie, I know, but you can call it arrogance. If Prince is really in that glorified box and he tells us that we will fail or why care, I want to be able to tell him that "he" failed, we wont, even(especially) if it seems like we will.
I'm probably the only one who feels this way, but as long as I have a vote and a voice, I'll keep being like a conscience: easy to ignore.

Id prefer it if we didnt take that easy way out. Also, the voidborn spooky devil powers has a branch that seemed to specialize in helping the squad. I opposed to walking down that path, but if we do, we are filling that motherfucker out first. And thats only if we choose voidborn.
Also, Prince went down that path and STILL failed. So many friends lost, so many friends ruined. That is how I am probably going to view Prince for the rest of this quest:a powerful,legendary,awe inspiring failure, and I want to exceed him.
>>4628477
Oh, never a "good guy", but if we can take an opportunity to help humanity without to great a cost to the company, I'd want to take it. We arnt knights and we shouldn't pretend to be good guys, but if we can do some good on the side, we could take it. Good will in a galaxy like this is worth its weight gold and is far harder to come by.

The road to Below is paved with good intentions.

Every time Prince - and by extension Anons - pursued greater power, it was always to help his men or the Commpany, directly or indirectly. There was never a pursuit of power for power's sake, but a long slope of treacherous care.

Every lost men made us more willing to use dirty tactics or get spooky powers, so that the next time it wouldn't happen. Even his undying devotion to the Company was born out of the simple desire to keep as many of its men alive as possible.

So be careful if you want to keep your men alive at all costs. Sometimes the most human thing to do is to accept the loss and move on.

But if you can't, there's always the Cyborg/Voidborn combo. From what I've seen it's the best build to support/protect the team.

Just replace your weak flesh with something inhuman and stronger. Consort with weird and probably malicious powers for your men. Become the 2230 Prince.

>>4629035
I reckon we go full power hungry piece of shit, "strongly suggest" upgrades to our troops regardless of religion or wishes, seek profitable contracts, gamble with life a little but always go for the strongest strategies we can come up with to maximize profit and survival (because losing men is costly and bad business)

>>
>>4629060
Yeah I mean I don't want to play Prince again for sure, but also Prince wasn't power hungry. He sacrificed himself for his men (his soul, etc). Given that this universe obviously has tech/bio mods as a thing and merc armies as something in common usage I could see us offering better missions/rewards to those who are willing to undergo improvements to increase the profit factor for each mission.

That being said it's not something I'm married to, I'm happy to see what we all as a group vote for and play in the direction the group decides. STV had some great screaming but when we all had similar goals in mind we crushed shit as well

Your Krieger Paycheque suffers a 10% deduction to feed your gambling addiction. Each time this occurs you have a chance to break even, lose more, gain some cred or win big.

The flutter in your stomach as the die bounce across the holo-board, the knot of anxiousness as the results roll up after you pull the lever, the satisfaction of calling a bluff right and the elation of pulling off one of your own with a scrag hand. And the fact that a lot of it wasn’t even your money just made spending all the it easier. You were celebrating your recent promotion, nothing wrong with that. And you were making a lot of money, you could have kissed the disgruntled casino staff that cashed in your winnings.

That’s all well and good, you should have called it a night there. But instead of calling it quits you found yourself sitting across from a dour collection of expressionless high rollers at 4AM in a smoky backroom. Your old squaddies had all gone to bed or passed out in a club somewhere by then, but even if they were conscious they couldn’t have pried you away from that table if they tried. The bigger the pot the greater the thrill, and the amount of creds piled on that table would have been enough to…

…To what? Buy a ship? Set up your Company Standby Reserve retirement fund? You’d be lying to yourself, again, if you said you’d even given much thought as to what to spend your winnings on.

Win big or lose big, it’s all in the game. Unfortunately, last night was definitely lose big.

Maybe you have a problem. You’ve heard people talk about the horrors of combat, folks reduced to gibbering wrecks after their first Drop. The chaos of the engagement, the focus on the mission. You don’t mind it. You’ve picked chunks of dead squadmates from your visor and slept like a baby in your foxhole a few short hours later.

No, it’s the quiet that gets to you. The drugs, the drink, the gambling, the sex… it’s all just noise to fill the silence. Fun sure, but just noise all the same. The bedsheets shuffle behind you as your latest distraction from last night stirs.

”Creds are on the table.” You gesture aimlessly to where you imagine the bedside table might be. Some young buck station engineer you picked up in the bar. Not bad-looking, a little handsy but you go in for that sort of thing.

”I… I’m not some kind of whore, lady.” He seems affronted at the suggestion, but his eyes do pause on the pile of Creds.

”You don’t need the Creds?” You raise an eyebrow at him through the mirror, he’s prettier than your usual type. Soft. Not Krieger material. ”What are they paying human engineers on a remote station like this?”

He mutters an amount, eyes downcast, and you whistle. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that most humans aren’t living on Krieger payrates. ”Look, think of it this way. I’m not paying for the sex, I’m paying for you to leave.”

The pretty-boy needs no further encouragement, pausing only to put on his pants and grab the last of your creds. Void Mother knows he’s probably eager to get out of here now that the booze and horniness has worn off, no matter how good the sex was. You’re no average refugee vagrant, or even one of the domesticated humans from those civilized colonies now under xenos rule. You’re from the arse end of nowhere.

Your bed partner definitely noticed…

I would like to spec into genemods for some Batman stealth shennanigans with the Predator tree, if we're talking tech either Bionics or Advanced hardware, if Voidborne I think Prescience, and if we go for the Exile school either way of the gun or the Four warriors tree.

Upon re-reading it, I think it makes sense that a Critfail is reduced to a Double Fail and remains there rather than being reduced again to a regular fail. I think that's the correct interpretation of what I've written, and it was certainly my intention at least.

Very good though, you've already got my worriedly checking my rules for the equivalent of Prince's gamebreaking endgame abilities....

Don't worry, thats probably the only truly game breaking perk there. But there are some interesting combinations especially when you combine trees.

For example just the inital perk from the Four Warrior Winds is a nice tree to dip for the +1 Strategem. Just in case, maybe also add a condition so you can't spam the same strategem twice in the same round?

I'd argue that Rite of Passage is just as broken - all new squadmates start at Comrade is *huge* given the new rules of combat.

But yeah, synergy will play a big part in the second tree skill chosen (and obviously in the same tree branches).

So far, the most obvious seem Cyborg/Genemod (focus on Bionics and Physique, you can get up to +50 AV, 2 Health levels, various resistances, regeneration and CC re-rolls), Genemod/Exile (high focus on Stratagems to take advantage of the high number of re-rolls + Stratagems available) and Cyborg/Voidborn (Drone/Aura/Prescience to make the squad as hard to kill as possible)

Oh man, all these skill trees and perks are really cool, it's hard to decide. I've mostly chosen Voidborn for the origin itself.

I wonder how large our team will be though, because its an average of about +2DC per squad member if everyone starts at Comrade. Excluding the Camaradince bonus.

IIRC it was 10 in total: MC, Corporal, Signaller, Medic, Gunner, Sapper and 4 Troopers.

Which equates to 2 Stratagems and Orders per turn, the first Skill of every other class and a whole +73 to combat (+7 MC, +7 Corporal, +4 Sig., +4 Medic, +12 Gunner, +7 Sapper, +8 each Trooper).

Now you see why I love Genemod.

>>4629150
Believe me, I get you. My favorite future build would be a Genemod/Exile who takes advantage of Stratagems, Wetwork and CC.

Compared to how Prince approached things, I think it would lead to a different but equally entertaining experience.

Rite of passage still seems pretty nutty but isn't it only a +32 bonus in a firefight as squaddie provides some starting bonuses
>>
>>4629161
> only a +32 bonus

You speak of it as if it's something minor, ee had Kid killed for a +5 DC bonus, you know :V

But yes, it's a huge bonus modifier to Battlefights (which is how we avoid casualties at the end of the day), more skills for our crewmate and less time spent towards the Battle Brothers status.

Because let's face it, someone will die. It's a matter of when, not if. If we spend time on a squaddie just to see them die, it's a waste of time because we need to build loyalty from scratch.

With Rite of Passage, we cut down on the time necessary and get better troops at the same time.
>>
>>4629158
>>4629161
Just to clarify fellas, Rite of Passage applies to NEW squaddies. You’ll still have to win over those you currently start with before getting the perk.

Eh, Prince feels more like a genmoded murder machine than a warlock to me. Yes I remember that his powers came from a fallen god but the way we used it makes him more of a mass murderer rather than the mysterious sixth sense abilities we have here.
>>
>>4629183
The way Voidborn's skills are written makes me think more of "Starship Troopers Intelligence Officer psychic" than full on warlock/sorcerer.
>>
>>4629189
I get that but if more feel than build, yeah Prince could be a superhuman murdermachine but what largely fueled it was dark magic fuckery and I want to diversify from that this time.

>>4629190
I'd pay you that if the unmake line wasn't basically about psychic fire and had Soul leeching and Prescience wasn't all about fate having a quirk called soul bargaining.

regardless of my stance on things, Voidborne was still 2 up from the next closest vote so it may very well be the choice if things don't change.

>>4629172
It's pretty fucking great, not gonna lie. This one I've been planning on the backburner for ages, it is good to see anons as hype for it as I am.

>>4629175
You have assumed an NCO role in a different Krieger unit you served with before. I noticed during my time as a choco (army reserve) that people who got promoted tended to be shifted to different units, the theory was that your fellow diggers wouldn't -really- show you the required respect of your new rank. They've seen you play goon of fortune and have a bush fap with the rest of them like any normal human.

TL;DR Of all the 77th Krieger Platoon, you will only have previous history with the Corporal you select.

>>4629177
>upgrade points
Currency is effectively experience points, completing certain side objectives and faction goals will help boost that total to your Krieger Paycheque at the end of a mission or campaign. You will spend money to buy upgrades, invest in skill boosts and purchase non-regulation equipment.

>if no one dies
Your squad size is currently 10. Black Company regulations dictate that combat effective units should operate in blocks no less than 8 and no more than 12.

>>4629180
I assume you mean replace?
Immediately from the same platoon if the Lieutenant can spare the men, but most often it will be at the end of a mission or campaign when during resupply and payday. I will both present new squaddies to fill the gaps and squaddies from your sister Krieger squads (we can assume they put in for a transfer for one reason or another).
>>
>>4629196
As for the squad itself and upgrades, are these mods (gene/cyber/etc) restricted to ourselves and other established officers or can we purchase cybernetics for example and encourage troopers to upgrade between missions?
>>
>>4629199
Generally they are for yourself and others of your rank or higher, the groundpounders get paid pretty well by human standards but not as good as that sweet officer rate.

But you will notice that certain squaddies will get a unique perk or order at max loyalty rank, so you might see a squaddie from Clayton's Cradle have an ability similar to Alpha Instinct at Battle Brother level, a Voidborn with a perk not dissimilar to Aura or Unmake etc...

I either wanted this or Exile, as long as we dont get voidborn first. If we get it, i'd rather it be second, that is if we dont get exile for the second one instead. Voidborne and Exile seem to better as a second power set, alternatively speaking.
>>4629116
I had a bit of a knee-jerk reaction when I realized that we were playing a woman, not because im against it, but due to the simple fact that a disproportionate number of quests where the MC is a woman have her turning into some variety of sex freak. As long as we dont turn into one of those, im sanguine. Getting a prostitute to celebrate doesnt count, im speaking of having sex with two or three people every two or three threads. I might just have had bad luck in finding those quests, I dont know.
You say that alternatively speaking there is not much difference, but the players themselves may not see it that way.

A) Forgotten isn't a degen QM.

B) House and Dominion has a female MC and it was fine. So does Drowned, and Valen. Arguably three of the better QMs on the board, TSTG, Benthic, and Riz have done FeMCs without any problems.

Yeah, I know it was probably just that the ones I can remember seem bigger in my mind. And I wasn't saying that Forgotten would encourage it or something like that, only that anons might want to do it. I'm more accepting of smuttery in this quest because we are a merc, so sleeping around isnt an issue, and it also means that any real romantic relationships will be harder to come by, so fewer waifu wars(relatively) and those that do crop up will feel all the more special for it.

Personally, I would prefer Exile, but I would prefer even more that we not be Voidborn for our first skill tree. I try to base my votes on what I want to be and what I want not to be. As the quest goes by, more evidence can be presented for which should be our second one.

Its less the morality that I have had an issue with(as we have never tried to rape someone or bed a married woman in StV, though the premarital stuff could be an issue) and more the practical reasons. Sleeping with someone who recently tried to kill you doesnt seem practical. In this quest we have more people who want us dead and fewer people who care about us(as people). We are also not the epitome of beauty do to either of our 4 origins, though I doubt some people will car.

The whole tryst with Frida was one of the best events in SvT: not just because it was a total madlad move, but most importantly because it opened up an interesting plotline.

That's generally what marks a good waifu/husbando: a way to develop the story, not to arouse Anons with fake tits and/or abs.

As for practicality, seducing an hostile individual is not exactly an unheard event. Not that I encourage Anons to do so at every occasion, mind you.

I agree that potential for story development is a key factor, not all potential is good. If we managed to seduce the Queen, that would definitely give the story more ways to develop, but the vast majority would likely lead to very bad things. IF we choose Frida in the end, it doesn't guarantee that it will end in a happy marriage.
Seducing a hostile individual is a few steps down from courtly courting, as the latter as the implicit goal of marriage. Sorry for dragging this old argument out again, I just dont want a repeat to happen unless there are very good reasons for it.

Just two simple, in-person interactions with a bumbling Romani bear that immediately starts bitter arguments in the halls of power. Would have been absolutely hilarious.

>>4629581
Ah, but you're conflating good development with positive development. The two are massively different matters.

A good story development is such because it creates an interesting narrative, like Kid's death.

Was it a positive development for Prince? No, it was probably when his last shred of human decency died - yet exactly for that reason it was a strong narrative point.

Similarly, the contrast between Andrei and Frida's personalities, their initial clashes, her father and brother's actions and so on create an interesting and coherent narrative which improves the overral experience - unlike a 'lol seduce the Queen because yes', a sign of a bad QM.

Of course, people are perfectly justified if they dislike Frida due to her possible bad influence or attitude. But that's a judgement on the character itself, not her role in the story.

So strong narrative points trump all? Should we choose the options that endanger our comrades most because the emotional turmoil will make a good story? We are not simply reading a story, we are also guiding a character thru life, and thru them, others. We dont need to have Shakespearean tragedies, or convoluted plots to have a good story. Hell, considering the setting, we will likely have these things with out trying to, probably even when we try our best to avoid it. Hamlet and the Iliad had good story development, but they both ended with(in the Iliad's case its in follow up stories) most significant characters dead. Even if its a good place for the story to end, I'd prefer that the characters that I will spend probably years growing to care about to have happy ending, and if not that the bittersweet ones.

No, I never said we should send soldiers to die for the drama. You equated warm feelings to good writing and I gave my two cents about it.

Other than that, feel free to vote for whatever will make you happier, just as everyone else will. It's your right.

Unrelated to all of this, but I made a miscalculation in my earlier assessment of an all Comrade squad of 10 soldiers.

The bonus wouldn't be +73, but rather +83. If we can get two new Troopers (12 is the maximum number in a squad) after Rite of Passage, it puts us at +99.

>>
>>4629879

>>
>>4629879
Yes, but the value of more, better prepared men in battle is still great.

And as I said before, we *will* lose men. Especially before our build really comes together, just like it happened in BCQ.

RoP ensures that we can lessen the impact (and maybe even profit) from these events.

It might be inevitable but I would rather not lose anyone. Hence, voidborne.

>>4629876
>+73
I was merely giving an example that feel in line with how I took your logic. You value the the narrative possibilities of our decisions, which I also value and cant call a bad thing. The only issue I had is that you seem to value not simply a rocky path, but one that we throw stones ahead of us on.
Im sorry if I seem persistent. You at least have your decisions well reasoned and though out, so even if I disagree with the choice, I doubt I could fault your logic, with it merely coming down to personal preferences.
On a different note, I agree with your prior post, where you stated that you desire a genemod/exile build. The exile build in part focuses on squad dynamics, which I prefer, and it lacks the transhumanist elements of the other ones. I would prefer it to be the second one because I view it as more appropriate thing to train in in-story than the genemods.

I emphasize the scars since Clayton's Cradle is a top contender for our planet of origin.Since it is a death world, scars would be common and likely looked at as a point of pride or honor. If we are from there, then it would be unlikely we wouldn't have scars(as the description for the option even says that we have scars) and its more unlikely that we would heal them. If we are of the other three, then scars are less important.

Clayton’s Cradle. The Green Hell. Shrugging on your jacket you pause and genuflect on your past life, before the Company. Your hand unconsciously traces the scars of where that Vinehound almost made a meal of you. But for your advanced immune system you’d have died anyway. Whenever you’re feeling sorry for yourself, exhausted or hungover or even wounded, you just think of home and how much you don’t miss it. Or at least pretend not to miss it.

You were maybe 5 cycles old when you killed your first Coilviper, crushed underneath your heel before it could fill you with enough poison to kill a dozen humans. No older than 11 when an outbreak of Jawtox took your siblings. By the age of 15 you had participated in your first Megadon hunt and helped fend off an attack on your village by a pack of voracious Carnotaurs. You remember carnivorous vegetation capable of swallowing a grown man, insectoids the size of buildings and primitive sapient Uglocks that would just as readily trade with you as they would suck your brains out from your skull.

There are few places indeed that are semi-civilized on that jungle hell, nooks and crannies in the roiling Green where the oblivious Leviathans rarely migrate through, crushing the encampment walls on their way to the next grazing spot. And even then a slabcrete wall only offers so much protection. Many is the morning when you were woken up by the cries of alarm and grief at the latest family to have a Vinehound sneak in and grab a child from its bed or some other, more insidious, misfortune.

When the Savis Legion came around for the next generation of hardy genemod recruits, your place in the Savis Auxiliaries was all but assured. It was the only way you were getting off that damn planet. At least until a Company freighter pinched the best of the pickings before the Savis could herd you onto their own ship. The Company pay was better by far, and you didn’t have to take orders from self-important little rodents that wouldn’t last a second outside of your walled encampments. Most of the lethal predators out in the Green would barely consider a Savis a snack. No doubt it's why your fellow Cradlers were so highly valued in the Auxiliaries.

There was a savage beauty in that world, the emphasis on savage. You are either Hunter or Hunted. The immutable law of the Survival of the Fittest was a dogma you lived by. Still live by, perhaps. Sometimes you forget it doesn’t always work that way outside of the Green, though in your experience a lot of the time these labels, ‘ethics’ and justifications are just a muddled variation on the Strong preying on the Weak. Not that you think it’s necessarily not bad or good. It just is.

Your old life is known only to you, no record of it exists. Birth certificates, criminal convictions, subscriptions to local news outlets. Erased. Expunged even from the Company’s own Archive, or so the recruiters say.

Wanted on Persipira by the Federation for murder? Not anymore. Paying off a million-cred bond to Yibrak overseers? That debt just comes up as an unexplained deficit on their books. Discharged with full military honours from the Savis auxiliaries? Now your old alien commanders wouldn’t know your face from the next unregistered human. It’s a deep record wipe so clean and thorough that barracks room rumours have it that the Company utilises some form of forbidden AI tech to effect the data wipe so completely across multiple nets.
For you, killing your past was part of the appeal. No one knows who you were before you joined the Company and, to be frank, no one cares. A data wipe doesn’t get rid of memories though, and you remember all too well…

The pay is what we say when people bother to ask, but the chance to stick a thumb in the eye of self-important rats is what really sold us on the Company. Proximity breeds contempt.

The increased reaction times and the strength mentality from these gives a bit of clarity on why we hated those Savis vermin, and the hunger we have to gamble so much. A risky action paid off so much in the past life on the Cradle, it's not our fault that it's gotten us into hot water in more civilized areas. You'd think sharp eyes helps counting cards, but noooo.

No strong preference, but the 'harsh orphan growing up harsh' clichè has been written over and over again. This seems more original, and it fits with the Gambling addiction - all for the thrill of absolute freedom, unbound by anything or anyone except luck.

>Alpha Instinct

I've shilled enough for Rite of Passage before. Alpha Instinct is a pretty good Strategem by itself (+1 Re-Roll for our Squad fighting) and Pack Mentality increases the DC during AI, which can be the difference between success and failure. The other two are cool to get AI running, but the real prize is the free activation once we unlock all the Perks.

Predator is good too, but we don't have many Lead by Example Strategems right now, so I feel AI is a better starting choice.

I really wouldn't call it a waste, a bit weird maybe but maybe our family was some of the first or best gene-moded families on the planet or among the first settlers? or maybe the family was just good at what passed for buisness/politics on the planet.

Either way daddy and his wealth can get fucked, a life of violent risk is where its at.

If it reassures you at all, a Cradler's definition of 'sheltered' isn't going to be what most would think of when they hear the term. 'Sheltered' in the Green might mean you got to eat your food cooked instead of raw. Or your villa was less susceptible to infestation than others in the village.

Think pampered chieftain's daughter rather than glasshouse princess. That said, I'm equally fine with writing an origin of the harshest version of a Cradler's upbringing.

Its probably not going to win, but I would like the perks it has that help squadmates
Considering our potential past as an orphan on a death world whose only goal was surviving another day, I think this philosophy could apply, though only later as its unlikely someone like that would develop it when in such a life. Mercy an tolerance are privileges of the strong. This does not mean that to be merciful, one must be strong, only that in order to be merciful and survive, one must be strong enough to face the potential consequences. This can apply to other sentiments that are less important for immediate survival, such as trust and sacrifice for squad mates.
I'm not asking to become this, I just thought it was just one of many possible developments that I would find interesting.

Your parents had a pretty good set-up, landing on their feet and quickly ingratiating themselves into what passed for the local elite in the colony. A gilded cage, servants waiting on you hand and foot. Your parents were smarter than most, fleeing in the earliest days of the Rot with most of the family fortune intact. You had everything a growing daughter could want. Except freedom. [Runaway Wastrel Background]

Desolate poverty, digging through scud heaps to survive. Your parents didn’t last long before being devoured by the jaws of the Green. Just one among millions of orphan refugees, you crawled from the gutter of an lethal alien world. You’ve known all too well what it feels like to go hungry, to hunt and eat things that you didn’t know whether they would kill you despite the genemod implants. To do whatever it takes to carve something out for yourself. You’ve been poor, you came from nothing. And you’re never going back to that. [Harsh Orphan Background]

>Predator Quirks

You don’t remember your parents. Not really. You remember them teaching you to read, giving you your first genemod implants the scientists handed out. You don’t even remember how they died, only that all of the sudden there were screams and roars and you and your older brother were running. He did his best to take care of you, you remember that. He’d have been about that boys age when Jawtox took him and your little sister. From then on you were on pretty much on your own.

Orphans in the slums of Three Pines and Perspira think they have it tough fighting for scraps from Federation handouts? Try wrestling a Crocodine for first bite at a piece of day-old carrion. Try picking Gnashpine thorns out of your leg, and ignoring the bleeding to continue the chase because another day without a decent hide to trade for genemods and you’d be as good as dead. Try being so hungry you'd bite into a fruit that you have no way of knowing would poison you or cause something to grow and explode out of its host, then curling into the smallest ball you could and just hoping that a Vinehound or Carnatour didn’t pick up your scent and rip you from the hole you were huddling in that night. Let those institutionalised bedwetters survive any of the hundred horrors you endured to just to eke out another day of agonising existence in the Green and then they can tell you how hard they had it. You have fought, bit and clawed your way to the top of a very nasty food chain and you are never going to let yourself forget it.

Just about everything in the Green has evolved to kill bigger and meaner things than some orphaned human girl. But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. The ‘verse has done everything it can to kill you and you still here. In your books that makes you just about the toughest queen bitch around. A stronger grip, enhanced sense of smell and heightened reflexes are just the start. A split-second faster reaction time makes all the difference between finding a meal and becoming one out in the Green. And, from your own personal experience so far, this holds just as true in the middle of a firefight.

You pause in front of a passably polished piece of metal corridor, scrutinising one of your canines in the reflection. You prod it tentatively with your tongue. Yep, still sharp. Not filed to points like some of your fellow Cradlers, but wicked enough that if you bite someone they’ll fragging know about it. Since you’re in front of the mirror anyway, and still have some time to kill before you have to get dressed, you take a moment for a once-over inspection.

Vinehoud scar? Yep, still there. Rippling muscles? You’re surprised station security let you through with these guns. Amber eyes from a lifetime of incremental genemods? Never shone brighter. Your fair hair and light skin is, according to some, fairly typical of people hailing from the Eurasian Union. The names Pareece, Lun-dun and Nova Moscow mean little to you, but the surviving refugees from Earth in your encampment would speak of such places affectionately. You come to a stop as you turn the corner leading to the docks.

Oh great. It’s Vak, the local Savis loan shark, and his pet Pect’Max enforcer. A lot of the money you spent gambling last night wasn’t technically hard-earned wages. Technically a lot of it was borrowed, probably what made it so easy to spend. And technically you’d been hoping to slink through to the docks and ship out without encountering the Savis who lent it to you.

Bashinx! The little ferret gesticulates wildly when he spots you. He looks mad. Or sick. “Kiro Bashinx! Ok-ok parreah?”

“You’ll get your creds Vak, don’t sweat it.” You fiddle with your translator tech, damn thing is acting up. But you can pretty much guess what he’s saying even before it finally kicks in. “I still have two cycles to pay you back don’t I?”

“Ga’bashinx Kur-tt’t vel-ice try, Cradler. Your ship is due to leave this cycle.” Yep, definitely mad. At least the translator is working. Mostly. “You think you can cheat us for [equivalent=fools/parlour tricks]?”

Truth be told, you’re not really listening to Vak anymore. You’re all still in the talking phase, true, and the Pect'Max guard has only just started to do his 'loom menacingly' schtick. But you know exactly where this is going. They want their money, naturally. And, naturally, you’ve spent it all on your latest dance with Lady Luck and don’t plan on paying it back anytime soon. Or ever. These loan sharks fool enough to lend creds to a Krieger on shore leave should have tried knocking on a Company Office and asking how that usually works out instead of trying to strongarm you in person.

They’re about to find out the hard way that you don’t play these standover games with a motherfragging Krieger…

Finally the fun part begins! I feel like daredevil would go better with our gambler side, and the knuckle blade will make us top dog batwoman.

I also get a distinct feeling that we'll be more of a Bad Hand than a Prince this time around. Doesn't feel like an erhu enjoyer, for sure.

I like this a lot more than Daredevil. Gambling is a vice, but killer instinct? Considering the life our protagonist led, it was her lifeline. Kill them before they kill you.

This or the Pistol, but not showing on standard scans might be an interesting edge. Plus, works with the Predator aesthetics.

Spent some time looking at the Advanced Firefight Rules and there is some useful info regarding the types of enemies we may encounter. As such I've made up a list of general counters and things to avoid by enemy type based on their combat behaviour patterns:


•Station gangers or poorly trained Yibrak indentured militia: Will surrender when shown to be outgunned. Use “GNR name: Let ‘em have it!” and “SPR name: Bring it Down” for shock and awe to end firefight quickly. Combat tactics to vary depending on hostile force behaviour.
--


•Savis Legionnaires or Federation RDF: Will fall back and hold position until forced to surrender. Avoid “Shock Assault” without prior intel or friendly causalities will be high. Assume “Wetwork” for max impact with no intel. “CPL name: Time for Plan B” to avoid being surprised by a change in tactics and “SPR name: Bring it Down” to reduce enemy AV and force a route or change in tactics
--


•Auxl Brotherhoods or Vesh Priests: Will not surrender, high chance of enemy attempting Shock Assault.

Avoid “Wetwork Ploy” due to high risk of being overwhelmed. Preference “Hold Position” in order to ambush and disorganize enemy forces.

Multiple choices exist here – “SIG name: Danger Close!” and “GNR name: Covering Fire” to attempt to minimize friendly causalities whilst maximizing damage to enemies – or a more conservative approach “GNR name: Covering Fire” and “CPL name: Time for Plan B”/ “CPL name: Watch my back” to reduce friendly casualties. – Or maximum damage/high risk with “SIG name: Danger Close!” and “GNR name: Let ‘em have it!”.

Most difficult foe, will require more complex strats and a combination or orders for maximum survival and effect

Fit's in with our old life, and takes advantage of our predator instincts. Plus, being always having that little edge that's very difficult to notice until it's already too late is a traditional benefit for a Krieger. May even help prevent some Got the Jump! effects like Prince's alarmingly large amount of too if we get a few more or a pistol in the future.

Let's go the Psycho road, but not teen-edgy cringe Psycho like Prince, more like cold, pragmatic Psycho, the kind of Psycho you just find naturally among people that kill for a living.
Also a blade fits perfectly for our origins and our lifestyle.

These are conversation traits, so I would assume that they just give us more such options, and they dont necessarily force us to do certain actions. This seems like a choice between our flaw and our origin and I choose our origin. The former exacerbates our flaw, which is already bad enough.

You do your utmost to suppress your grin at the prospect of impending violence, you don’t want to give the game away. Can a genemodded Krieger go toe to toe with a Pect’Max henchman and come out on top? You don’t know the answer but you are dying to find out. Is he (She? It?) reaching for a blade or just scratching his chest? What’s your play if they make a grab for your throat with those wicked talons? Back off and draw or duck in close and pump two under the armpit? You shift your stance as Vak continues to make noises, blah-blah-credits-blah-blah-debts-blah-blah-dire-consequences. You prop an arm against the corridor wall as your other hand drops, oh so casually, to where your Mag-Lock pistol is holstered.

After a lifetime of constant danger, it’s hard to get excited about much of anything that isn’t life-or-death. Probably explains your borderline-unhealthy penchant for gambling somewhat. After all, it’s just money on the line there. It takes a big pile of credits in play before you even start to get excited over it.

“Is there a problem here, Sergeant?” The whip-crack bark of command. The kind of voice that is used to issuing orders, and used to having those orders obeyed.

“Sir! No problem, sir!” You stiff immediately, your hand snapping back from your holster as you new superior officer appears in the corridor behind you.

He probably didn’t see you reaching for your pistol. You hope he didn’t see for your pistol. That’s not to say the Company doesn’t turn a blind eye to whatever trouble the rank-and-file cause on shore leave so long as they report back in one piece, but it stops short of sanctioning cold-blooded murder in front of superior officers. It would have been easier to brush off if you had a better concealed weapon, but you don’t think it was totally obvious what you were planning. Still, not a good start to your new position. At the very least there would be paperwork.

With his boyish looks, crisp uniform and meticulously clean-shaven chin Lieutenant ‘Boy’ Blue looks all of about sixteen. He probably doesn’t even actually need to shave, but you know for a fact the Lieutenant is older than you by at least a decade. A vatbaby from before Earthfall, the Ptolemy Project was rumoured to have been a program that planned to literally breed the next generation of senior officers in the Earth Republic’s military branches. Of course, the Lieutenant has never confirmed these rumours and no one’s ever asked, but what else could he be?

If true, he would have been only the first generation. But he turned out to be the last as well. turned out. LT Blue couldn’t have been more than ten when The Rot first took hold of Earth, raised in a cloistered academy running over every aspect of warfare and leadership that the textbooks and tutors could teach as the planet went to gak outside. All that military grooming for nothing. Well not nothing, judging by his rank in the Krieger 77th. And doubtless a fat paycheque to go along with those officer stripes too.

“This human of yours owes me many credits!” Vak blusters, unsure whether the appearance of a human officer helps you or him. “They are intending to abscond and pay none of it back!”

“I see.” Lieutenant ‘Boy’ Blue nods slowly, taking a conciliatory tone with this irate member of the general public. “File a complaint with our Company office and we will take the appropriate action.”

“And how long will that take?” Savis may be overconfident but they have a well of mean cunning. They’re not generally idiots and from the baring of Vak’s needle teeth you can tell he knows as well as you that if you get on that ship he has zero chance of seeing his creds again. “I am running a business here! Your subordinate entered into a binding agreement and she has to fulfil her side of the bargain. If she does not have the credits to cover her debt then your Company must pay it!”

“I understand.” The LT takes this on board, considering his words. When he responds he speaks firmly and respectfully, with the kind of patience that comes with not giving a fragging scud about ‘members of the general public’. “File a complaint with our Company office and we will take the appropriate action.”

“The appropriate… I want my fragging money!”

“Is this heathen making problems for you, Lieutenant?”

The quills on the Pect’Maxis head flatten. These tall avians are routinely hired by the diminutive Savis as bouncers, henchmen and all-around rough sorts. But while their price might include standover duties on a lone human mercenary that owes their boss money, there’s not a lot being paid the kind of rates were they’d consider taking odds of 4 to 1.

Behind Lieutenant ‘Boy’ Blue, glaring over his shoulders, stand the other two sergeants of the Krieger 77th. Hovering by the service duct, still half-absorbed in the shadows, Sergeant ‘Casket’ Irons cocks her head. A twitchy, pale Voidborn that tends to keep her purple witch-eyes hidden under a generous fringe, SGT ‘Mags’ is probably the reason you bunk with your Mag-pistol under your pillow during those long voidtrips. The Company Disciplinary Committee formally investigated her involvement in the death of her predecessor, shot in the back of the head in the middle of a firefight. She was cleared of all charges, and he was kind of a dick so nothing came of it, but she’s kept her dark reputation ever since, along with being a contender for the finest shot in the platoon. The whispers of her keeping a collection of eerie voodoo accoutrements in her bunk is most likely true and honestly the least concerning thing you’ve heard about her to date.

The new speaker is the strapping dark man with his head shaved down to the skin. That would have to be Sergeant ‘Heavenly’ Hutu. In his Company issue singlet, likely the same damn one he got the day he enlisted, the New Antioch ink of his past life is barely legible against the toffee-toned skin. The scar tissue from a dozen or more intense firefights however, is much more prominent. Of the three, Sergeant ‘Heavenly’ probably has the more inflated reputation. Barracks room talk claims that he fights utterly without fear, safe in the knowledge that God protects him. Which God is never made entirely clear, as he doesn’t seem to subscribe to the more mundane requirements of the Old Faith religions found on New Antioch, or the even the new age cults for the matter. If you believe the rumours, the battlefield is his place of worship.

That’s all talk though, and the problem with relying too much on what the guys from your old crew told you is that you can never tell what is genuine, what is exaggerated bullshit and what is just being said by those asshats to screw with your head as the new NCO on the block. You’re the odd one out here, the third wheel to Lieutenant Blue’s command cohort. You’re not exactly chums with either of his sergeants either, though out of the two of them you think you’ve found someone with a similar style of leadership in…

Some think being like ice helps deal with the troopies. This may be fine with the voidborn's innate weirdness, or the clinical disdain expected from someone heavily cybered-up. However, nobody wants to get the gene-modded Cradler in a bad mood. We're usually in good spirits, but woe betide those poor devils who make the mistake of thinking we're forgiving of weakness and incompetence. Or if we're on a losing streak a mile wide, but that's neither here nor there.

Was originally gonna pick ice Queen just because it seemed to match well with our Russian broad with steely blue eyes. The discussion here convinced me though that firebrand matches better with our personality so far.

Having the Firebrand trait as well as the Daredevil trait make our mc too hotheaded for my taste, I wish we had more of a "predatory" demeanour, because it doesn't fit the "Harsh Orphan on Green Hell" at all.

We can still change our traits at the end, so vote on the indivivual trait you think is bes, then at the end we can change things if we want to. Personally, I would like Psycho and Firebrand. You can have the outer layer of fire with an inner core of ice, or the other way around if you like the other two traits. Im really just rationalizing having both, but you do you.

THats waht I was thinking. The subconcsious is ticking away, analyzing potential ways to kill, as anything less would have seen us dead in childhood. THe firebrand is an aspect that has been cultivated a little before or after we left Clayton's Cradle, something diffrent that filled the space in ourselves. It could alos be interesting to see how people react to us switching from the more public, squad oriented 2nd trait, to the more personal, deep seated 1st trait
"We will sneak into the enemy garrison, go loud and make as much of a diversion as possible, roaring all the while until our client does their part of the op. Then we go back to base, gamble our winnings away and win them back tenfold. Any questions?"
"What if the client decides to take what they got and book?"
"We kill the reinforcements, find the client and rip out his secondary mandible. Only way to kill its kind by blood loss and still hear it scream."
