How should we start the IC?

The platoon has just been formed, people don't know each other.

The platoon is deployed so there's some burgeoning camaraderie, but mostly among those who are already friends from the home front.

That was the original idea, but I wanted to open up positions a platoon wouldn't have. We'll start with one platoon, then expand from there.

Indeed. Platoon is the most feasible option.

Well, after briefly having to find a new set of pants after reading that OP, I will be pushing a block of my time away from studying for finals and towards this.

If possible, I'll be a medic.

Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.

What for? Squad leader have radios they can use to directly contact the platoon, and platoon commanders can use them to talk to the company. In case those fail, use messengers. If you need wiremen to direct a company, you're in some pretty deep shit.

Thanks; if there is too much of a demand for a medic, I can do something else. Is there any specific role that needs filling?

For some fucking frustrating reason my laptop refuses to connect to any internet, and I can't really do the app on my phone. I won't be back home for another four hours, so can you hold a loader/mortar commander spot for me?

Could you explain a little more about the levy rank? Are they actually a full part of the military given a full uniform and all, or are they basically militia, civilians given a gun and temporary rank?

Yo, part of me thinks that two IC threads could work good. In one, we'd run operations and such. In the other, we'd have a general character-building IC thread. Just a suggestion.
