Tales of the 501st (OOC)

Postby Brusia » Thu May 29, 2014 2:25 pm

The 501st Legion, often referred to as “Vader’s Fist,” is one of the most elite groups of soldiers in the Galactic Empire. Veterans of some of the fiercest battles of the Clone Wars and Operation Knightfall, the 501st has faced and defeated more than its fair share of enemies, but now it faces a far greater threat than any it has ever encountered, and one the 501st and the rest of the Empire have completely underestimated: the Rebellion.

That is where you come in: your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to lead a company of the Empire’s finest Stormtroopers and crush the Rebellion before they have a chance to defeat the Empire. After the Kamino uprising, the 501st “diversified” somewhat, so you can choose what troops you wish to lead into battle: the battle-tested, though aging, Jango Fett clones; clones from the new templates the Empire has started using, or fresh recruits from all corners of the Empire. The best technology, ships, and weapons the Empire possesses are at your command; use them wisely and end the Rebellion once and for all. For the Emperor!


Welcome to Tales of the 501st, a Star Wars RP based on the game Battlefront 2. In this RP, players will...well, RP... a company of Stormtroopers on their quest to crush the Rebellion. Fill out an app and follow the rules posted below and I'm sure everyone will have a good time :)

App:
Name of Company Commander:
Composition of Company: (e.g. Jango Fett clones, regular recruits, etc.)
Number of troops in Company:
Company Commander bio:
Any important additional info:
RP sample:


Rules: The usual RP rules; no Godmodding, no metagaming, no Mary/Marty Sues, three line minimum per IC post (exceptions made for dialogues), obey the OP and Co-ops, and of course have fun!

Helpful wiki: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

Note: I will not be acting as the OP for this RP (I just wrote it because, hey, who doesn't like writing Star Wars stuff ;) ). Zeinbrad is the OP, so please direct all questions, or whatever, to him.

Very tentative maybe... extremely so. I'll be joining, but only because the idea in-and-of-itself is interesting. I'm honestly curious as to how one plans to dispatch troops through the galaxy and monitor how they are deployed. Perhaps a better way to have gone about this was to RP as a trooper battalion and have RPers play as various troopers? It doesn't matter though, what's done is done and if you can keep up with the inevitable demand of scenarios the RPers will be asking for, good on you and may the light of the Empire shine brightly upon you.

Kass!

Also, before people go saying how "the stormtroop misses a target right in front of him" I have one thing to say.

The Stormtroopers accuracy doesn't suck, it's the flaws in the E-11's design if I remember correctly.

Name of Company Commander: Captain Jeo Nilas (Gee-oh Nie-lus)
Composition of Company: Kamino Beta Clones (commissioned), Imperial Regulars (Enlisted)
Number of troops in Company: 128
Company Commander bio: Captain Jeo Nilas was one of the first and only non-clone troopers during the Rise of the Empire who was given a position within the 501st. He managed to graduate top of his class from a Stormtrooper academy deep within the Outer Rim and distinguished himself early on in managing to take control of an entire Imperial Garrison to defend a small listening station also within the outer-rim from a marauding group of insurgents. His leadership not only lead to an Imperial victory, but also led to the deaths of all insurgents who took part in the fight for the loss of only three of his own men, two of which survived the encounter and died in the celebration afterwards. It was soon after this that he was then graduated to the rank of Lieutenant and was posted at a prison station in the Colonies, and managed to shut down multiple riots and uprisings before finally killing the leaders of the secret resistance movement inside the prison, however he did manage to also successfully interrogate three of the leaders and extrapolate the location of two more cells within the Sector.

Promoted to the rank of Captain then, he was then charged with hunting down and eliminating these two cells, upon the completion of which less than a year later led to his being brought into the 501st for the assault on Kamino during which event he managed a Company of troopers responsible for intercepting all fleeing vessels from the surface and detaining all aboard until an Imperial Intelligence Unit could arrive. It was during the Operation that he managed to also find and locate three major Kaminoan Executives who, while not loyal to the insurgents on the planet, were no longer willing to clone troopers for the Empire. The response of the Emperor's troopers was more than enough to... persuade them to reconsider. They now are cloning troops for the Emperor at an undisclosed facility in the Core Worlds.

On another note, here's something people might want to take into account when they begin ranking their officers...

Imperial Officer Ranks

Star Wars Galaxy Map

Also, on the note of the E-11's, that might be a part of it, but Stormtroopers weren't Imperial Marines, they weren't designed to be deployed specifically to kill, but rather they took the place of like the Planetary Police, like the FBI does for the local police and state police. However, because they need to apprehend, and not kill, they are taught to fire in a certain pattern around the target to hopefully suppress them only taking the killing shots if they have to. The Emperor liked having plenty of prisoners to torture, that's part of the reason why even the Death Star had Prison Quarters, for any who accidentally discovered it. They were simply charged with being conspirators and insurgents and traitors to the Emperor and were sentenced to Imperial Prison for an indeterminate amount of time.

Accepted.

Are you saying the Stormtroopers in the first movie where more security then combat troops? Or all Stormtroopers?

Yes, I'm saying that... think about it. The ones dispatched to the planet, they were there to apprehend droids and whomever had bought them, but they also did some erasing while they were at it. Then the multitudes of troopers on the Death Star were exactly that, security, not an invasion army because the Death Star wasn't for invading planets, but for destroying them. However, not all stormtroopers are this, their are shock troopers and actual dedicated for combat troopers that are deployed into the combat field, and they are actually competent, and it is here where the short-comings of the E-11 come most into view.

I thought that the 501st was the only legion that remained "pure" after the Kamino uprising.

As I read it, the vast majority of them were, but it says Vader would comb through other legions and transfer their best stormtroopers to the 501st to make up for lost numbers.
