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.

Written IC, like that other person.


Name: Benedikt Eckstein. Ja, I wasn't born here, so what?
Age: 26
Sex/gender: (M or F will suffice. Elaborate if needed.) Unless you are a dummkopf, you can see I am male.

Rank: Recruit, herr. You don't know "Herr"? It means "Sir".
Years of service: (If first tour, leave empty.)
Civilian occupation: Explosive Mining
Nobility: (Also state rank. If not applicable, leave empty.) I am no noble in your land.

Preferred role: (List up to three in order of preference.) Mortar Operator, AT Gunner, Support Gunner
Preferred squad/platoon: (If none, leave empty.) Squad Eins is where everyone else is going, no? You don't know "Eins" either? It's "Alpha" in your land.

Appearance: (Description or photo, optional.) This is the only picture of myself I have on hand. Ja, I was in another military, but I live in this land now.
We speak a Germanic language that is not German.
If a non-human ever commands our forces
Anthem (Better)
Techs: PT, MT, PMT, FT, slightly FanT.
Enemies: Non-humans, mainly ponies.

The area we're in would actually fall under subtropical rain forest (think like parts of the Appalachians, or a warmer version of the Pacific Northwest), at least as far as I'm concerned (OP may have something different to say, and I have no OP privileges, so this is all speculation on my part).

Gender binary. Non-binary (as Gren and I are IRL) would be if you don't identify as either male or female (at least not exclusively; there are a lot of subgroups within the non-binary label).


Confirming.

Mithras and Julia are like normalized Germans, their last name is based in Old Saxon.
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.

Guys, I appreciate that you speak Chinese (idk what specific Chinese language it is you're conversing in, so I'll just use that blanket term), but this is really not the place. I'm pretty sure there's a Chinese thread in General for that. If you insist on conversing in Chinese and don't want to go to NSG, either include English translations in your posts or take it to TG.

And yes, I know I'm not the OP (and I'm certainly not a mod), but it's only proper etiquette. Our common language here is English. (And before you ask, yes I am bilingual, so please don't think of me as some close-minded ignorant anglophone monolingual who thinks that all non-English languages should be wiped from existence -- no ill will intended towards anglophone monolinguals, of course.)

It is mostly my fault and I accept full responsibility. He did provide an English translation in his hanyu pinyin post, and I'm sorry I did not even include one in my hanzi one, which is obviously turning up the scale massively. I do admit that using Chinese is rather disrupting to an English thread, just like if one were to use English in Weibo.

Very well then, I shall now converse in English or provide translations. Heh.
