I am reading it, and it's still both lacking and hard to read. The stuff from the original template, all of the information in parenthesis, should be deleted so that I can easily read the information that you have recorded. Getting rid of the pre-written stuff will blow away a lot of smoke.

In regards to Lambert, his rank is not needed but that, in turn, leads me to wonder how he made Captain at twenty-five. Traditionally, Captains in the military are in their very late twenties or early thirties. Lambert appears to have attended college, which if he graduated with a four-year degree, he would barely have three years in the entire Gendarmerie. I don't think three years would be enough to get him into GIGN.

Another thing concerns some of his gear, and his role. Snipers have a place in combat, but when it comes to the jungle, I don't think a heavy-caliber bolt-action is suitable for this AO. We are fighting amid a landscape with a bunch of brush and vegetation that serves to obscure, hinder, and block anyone trying to wage battle within. Range is shit in the jungle; whereas open ranges like the Middle East allow people to take shots at distances longer than three-hundred meters, we would be lucky to get ninety meters in any part of the jungle not yet clear-cut. A lighter rifle, like an SR-25 or an M14EBR or M1A would be much more useful in this setting.

With his uniform, why would he still be wearing old fatigues? As much imagery as there is about soldiers of fortune running around in their old fatigues, the reality is that he would be inviting trouble by wearing such a uniform in the security field. Someone looking to create an international incident might point at him and publicly question why uniformed French special operations forces are in Peru on missions. Any hostiles performing a recon will most definitely take note of the uniform, making him a more identifiable target to search for during a firefight.

In summary, Lambert should preferably be a little bit older and the app cleaned up and expanded upon. Give me more to feel for this character; I want more to learn about. Ground him in more reality.




In other news, playboys, I am starting upon the IC today. If all goes well, then we are gonna be live either tonight or tomorrow. In the event that you guys can think of more folks who may enjoy this RP, please invite them to create a character.

In regards to Co-OPs, I am offering those roles to Rudaslavia and Hastur/Galdius, if they so desire.

Yep, we do need a medic in the team. Feel free to copy Insy's loadout if you wish to fill that role.

Other than that, we seem to have an RTO, a signals guy, engineer, automatic rifleman/overwatch, Rud is making a team lead/possible canine handler, there is a native Ranger guide, and my guy is a grunt/driver/manhandler. I think at this stage, we won't need a bird, but having a drone operator inserted into the team would help. Whether you have some portable drone or a larger recon UAV platform, I leave the door open.

  • NATIONALITY: Russian Citizen
  • CITY/TOWN OF PRIMARY RESIDENCE: Opochka, Russia





  • DEMEANOR: Verinka is a very loud and proud woman when it comes to talking about herself, but also has a mean streak. She reinforces the slavic stereotype by always being down for a drink, no matter the smallest occasion, but also has a love for Western pop culture. Always smiling and sometimes overly friendly, but she doesn't shy away when the bullets start flying.
  • PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Verinka stands at 6' and weighs 165lb. She has dirty blonde hair that's usually braided and deep blue eyes. Her arms are filled with tattoos all the way down to the VDV tattoo on the back of her left hand.

  • ROLE: Grunt
  • BIOGRAPHY: Verinka grew up in the streets and alleys of Opochka, running around and getting into trouble wherever she could. She was fearless even at a young age, and wasn't one to shy away from a challenge. This translated well to the military after she got done with school. She enlisted immediately into the Russian Armed Forces as infantry and saw deployments in Chechnya and Dagestan. She excelled at close-quarters fighting and was often made the pointman because of it. Verinka made a name for herself during her tours and eventually was given the opportunity to join the Airborne, which she took up immediately. She served well with the VDV during the years 2014-2015 and left active service two years later after she started butting heads with her higher ups. Eventually, after so many dead-end jobs and a lack of excitement, she became a contractor for Samael and started getting back into her old self again.

  • ROLE: Medic
  • BIOGRAPHY:
    Born in the village of Lienz, Austria; Erik was the son of a native Austrian librarian and a freshly arrived Serbian doctor. With two educated parents, one would expect that Erik would have followed in his parents' steps and attended university. However, the village life son grated on Erik and he constantly acted out; trying to overcome the boredom of his birth village. Such acts got him into trouble and eventually resulted in the pregnancy of his then girlfriend, Anika, as soon as Erik graduated from his secondary schooling. Anika refused giving up the baby and his parents cut him off to force him to grow up.

    Facing a coming child and with no other options; Erik signed on with the Austrian Armed Forces and married Anika the week he shipped off for basic training so she could receive benefits. The end of his basic training saw Erik slotted for both infantry and medic training; both of which he passed firmly in the middle of the pack. Thus, began an uneventful five year career with the 4th Panzergrenadiers; with a series of dull garrison jobs interspersed with training exercises. The only thing of note during these years was the birth of Karl Traeger in the middle of one such exercise; which resulted in Erik's APC and accompanying squad disappearing from the war games and mysteriously reappearing at the hospital.

    Erik's life would have continued in this routine if not for a comrade who had not re-upped and was off to work for an uncle in Israel. The uncle ran a kidnapping and rescue firm that was starting to expand its operations and needed new meat. Erik's comrade made the offer that they were looking for medical personal with combat training and that he could expect to make much more at Goliath Recovery then an entire career with the AAF. In the end the choice was an easy one, and Erik resigned from the AAF and moved to Israel with his young family in tow.

    Goliath Recovery was where Erik cut his teeth. The company was run by ex-IDF and Mossad types that operated throughout Continental Africa and the Mediterranean. That meant Erik's assignments ran the gamut of creeping through the D.R.C. to rescue captive doctors to raiding mafia safe houses on the Mediterranean shore. A rough start for someone of Erik's initial experience; but he came out ahead and found himself on one of the more successful teams Goliath operated. However, Goliath Recovery was eventually shut down after an operation in the Sudan saw massive collateral damage and an outraged international community. While the company fell apart; Erik was approached by a Samael recruiter, one of the many others snapping up the now jobless personnel. Samael promised better pay and even more benefits for his family; who Erik had sent back to Austria during Goliath's final days.

    Now a free agent, Erik accepted and found Samael an entirely new experience from his previous work. Counter piracy operations in Indonesia, running convoys of VIP's through Brazilian slums and escorting UN officials through Ukraine. Highly paid and dangerous jobs that Erik found he had a knack for. Now fresh from his four months off following the Ukraine debacle; Erik has received his next contract.

MISSION PERSONNEL FORM




  • NAME: Churan
  • AGE: 24
  • GENDER: Female
  • ETHNICITY: Yahari, Quechua
  • NATIONALITY: Peruvian
  • CITY/TOWN OF PRIMARY RESIDENCE:Iquito, Peru





  • DEMEANOR: Churan can best be described as silent, observant. Around others, she keeps his mouth shut, and rather chooses to listen, and leave people be. Only when it is absolutely necessary will she properly communicate, and even then, she will keep it as short as possible. Her resting face is one of indifference and concentration. She does not quip or speak needlessly.
  • PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Churan is shorter than the world average, but built very lean and muscular. She is not an intimidating presence, but also clearly not a push-over, her body being in top physical condition. She keeps her black hair short beneath a straw hat, and her tattoos are covered by jungle fatigue. But especially her legs are built for marathon running.
  • MOTIVATIONS: He just wants to live out her life in peace, without foreigners coming in and wrecking her home, poisoning their river, like was done in the past. She wants to go in and clear out the area as quickly as possible, so that everything can go back to normal. Even though she knows, with the arrival of the NGO aid mission, and the influx of tourists, things will never truly go back to normal, even if they stop poisoning her river and burning her childhood home.
  • EDUCATION: Churan has no formal education, but learnt most she knows from Uchuypoma, her great-grandmother. After the Event just a year back, which rendered much of her village mysteriously sick she joined the Ranger school. She was put through both Ranger training and a specialised course made especially for her, to familiarise her with the world beyond the Amazon. Though not everything could be slotted into a six month course, that had given her the necessary context for dealing with foreigners.
  • KNOWN LANGUAGES: Yahari-Quechua, Peruvian Spanish, some English (though not proficient, often using a Spanish/English mix to get her meaning across)
  • PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND: One year employment with the Almodavar Rangers, with the rank of Ranger.





  • AMOUNT OF TIME WITH SAMAEL: A week or so, give or take
  • PRIMARY ARMAMENTS:
  • Galil ACE with 4x magnifying sight
  • SIG Pro 9mm
  • Weighted machete
  • Fishing spear (1,5 m)
  • Blow gun/darts (0,5m)
  • PERTINENT EQUIPMENT: Maps, rations, fire starting kit, various antidotes, lengths of rope, trench shovel, binoculars, iodine tablets, water purification filter, a lot of plastic ziplock bags, assortment of pots and pans
  • UNIFORM: Churan keeps very light on the gear. Just a straw hat for protection against the sun, a kaki jacket (with her shoulder holster) over a light blue blouse, with black shorts. Churan wears no body armour or helmet, and chooses to move lightly rather than armouring herself up. His backpack is small and functional, holding her fishing spear and blow gun against the side. She wears his machete from a utility belt with a few other essential items. She uses various oils to keep moquitoes away from her skin. She has a natural plasmodium immunity.
  • ROLE: Interpreter, guide, general protector againt jungle harm
  • BIOGRAPHY:Churan was born the great-granddaughter of chief Uchuypoma. Her life was destined to be entwined with an ever-chaging world; born and growing up in the 90s, she would see the outside world encroaching ever-more on her native village. First came the tourists; starting at only a few trekkers every year, they grew in number until a documentary on Almodavar was made by the BBC. Afterwards, it exploded, and Churan's village became more and more the host of wealthy foreign backpackers wanting to take pictures with native children. After the tourists came the prospectors for both mining and logging companies. Ever-more contact with outsiders brought with it more internal conflict. Questions on whether to adopt foreign medicine and clothing, for example, raged on. Uchuypoma kept a steady hand, and ensured that the rights of her people were well-protected in goverment, but she could not stop the capitalist apparatus that was slowly chugging their way from across the sea.

    Churan was inspired by Uchuypoma, and dreamed of going abroad herself to join her great-grandmother in the arena of politics. Among her own people she was counted among the most brave, venturing far if she wellbeing of the tribe demanded it. She would go out after dark to find lost children, or track a man-eating jaguar if it had gotten too close, something that was traditionally a man's job. But still, her community was not so large as to instill strict gender boundaries, and respected every one of their members with a personal respect not often seen in larger societies. With her being the most adventurous, nimble, and knowing the tracks of Almodavar, she was a prime candidate to guide the various tourists. This is how she slowly picked up English; touring hikers through the jungle. She became very good at protecting witless foreigners against the unseen dangers of the jungle, and more than once had to carry one of them out of the park, nearly dehydrated and starving from drinking foul surface water.

    A year before our story begins, Churan was out guiding a rich couple from Richmond. When she returned to her village, half of its inhabitants had grown ill. Though unsure what had caused it at first, ranger intervention soon determined the source to be mercury poisoning in the fish, from illegal upstream gold mining activity. Churan did not have to think twice before volunteering to join the ranger corps. The rangers were notorious for their lazy attitude to park protection and their paternalistic view of the indigenous people, and Churan wanted to prove them wrong by teaching them. Perhaps a bit naive, but at least she got to do useful work with her knowledge of the park ecosystem and how to traverse great lengths on foot. She received a shortened ranger training course, focused mostly on the use of tools and weapons, as well as the cultural context of the outside world. During her time training in Iquito, she learnt more Spanish and English by reading popular books and comics that really connected with her; children's stories at first, but more complex material shortly after, with a special interest in history books.

    Working for the rangers was an incredible disappointment. The corruption and bureaucracy in the organisation was rife, with cocaine and mineral wealth changing hands quite often, under the noses of the rangers. The latter sometimes acted as glorified body guards to high-profile dealers, who disguised themselves as tourists to visit their Peruvian contacts. When the Samael Corporation first made contact with the rangers to arrange for a guide, both the ranger higher ups and Churan were glad to be rid of one another. When she handed over her resume and showed off her weapon skills, however, instead of just giving her a guiding gig, Samael offered her a job, at least for as long as the mission lasted, with possible extension if she did well. Now, even though she is just in it for the protection of her homeland, the world beyond the Andes beckons, so she is still torn on whether she would want to join Samael afterwards.

So far so good on the apps. Everyone is good, although with Traeger, I want to be clear that Samael is not in the business of offensive operations. They may be active in Ukraine, but they would certainly not be deployed near areas of major fighting; instead they would likely be guarding important public figures or protecting places of international frequency. In all likelihood, they would fire their weapons less than colleagues working in, let's say, a Samael anti-piracy gig.

And Churan shall be added shortly. Well done!

Yeah, just highlight it a smidge for me.

Now he just escorted UN officials through Ukraine. Does it need more or less?
My travels take me many places, from the scorching sands to the cold, dark vacuum of space. But I always return to my friends and family at The Pub.

I shifted the teams. I put Pariseau in charge of Team 2 due to previous rank, while Signorino hauls his gigantic Rambo gun for her fireteam. Kemal is now my signals/comms guy.

A man who fought against the YPG and a man who volunteered to fight for the YPG and has a Kurdish fiancee on the same fireteam? Now that's probably going to produce some interesting dynamics.

For the sniper thing I'm working with the equipment listed for GIGN, which would be familiar to the character. I can see the issue though.

If you're going off weapons used by the GIGN (and by extension the French military) you can use a HK417 in a sharpshooter role. Those are mostly used in the designated marksman role with a medium power optic among forces that use them IRL. Something like a 1-10x variable optic or 6x fixed magnification optic with a backup red dot for close quarters would serve a HK417 pretty well in a DMR role.

Additionally keep in mind that you aren't working for the french government in any capacity anymore. You're a private contractor. You don't have to use any stuff issued by the french military.

Also Day I just realised you and I are using identical weapon setups outside of the barrel length.

However wouldn't it be odd for a person to just suddenly swap from a weapon they are used to?
