Do Space Marines have time off?If I was on a Space Marine homeworld, would I see one standing on a sidewalk eating ice cream?
>>35456836>Do Space Marines have time off?Yes. Some more than others. The Codex prescribes 15 minutes of free time each day.http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Daily_rituals_of_a_Space_Marine>If I was on a Space Marine homeworld, would I see one standing on a sidewalk eating ice cream?Depends on the chapter. Some never even associate with normal people on anything close to a social level. Some do.The Salamanders are known to chill amongst to normal people of Noctune, doing normal-people things.
>>35456836With your post and message, I now imagine one part of the mandatory prayer time is really just the space marine isolating himself in a room full of cats, petting them and telling them all his horrible war stories until he feels better and goes back to his normal schedule.
>>35458337...reading that caused me to give my cat the last of my cheese. Damn you anon.
>>35458481>thy purring pleases my sensesSlaneeshi proto-Noise Marine detected.
>>35456836Yup, each chapter do different stuff in their free time. Blood Angels like to paint as a hobby. Space Wolves like to drink and feast. Salamanders have family time.
>>35456836Some chapters do. Most don't hob-nob with the populace, but you might find one hunting or just kicking it in the wilderness. Salamanders are known to visit the Nocturneans for various reasons from smithing practice to arena fights or whatever other hobbies they enjoy.
>>35456836Space Marines are bred for war. Don't feel bad for them, because in times of idleness, they grow listless for battle, and are the most at home entrenched deep within their foe.
Space Marines have hobbies and interests too.Titus, for example, is karaoke king
>>35456836Something like this?I guess some chapters may leave some, it depends
>>35456836Oh god, now I cant get off my head the idea of a SM eating ice cream on the stree, with a full suit of armour, just looking at people walking by
>>35460129I doubt they'd dishonour their armour by using it when on free time
>>35460129I have this image of a space marine doing it exactly like this except they smoosh the ice cream into the mouth piece.
>>35460196Yeah, marines do dress down when out and about. Armor is used for combat, not grocery shopping.
>>35460218That was how i was imagining it, just like >>35460009Hilarious
>>35460238>Astartes staring daggers at person in express lane with 11 items
>>35460238>That obnoxious kid that pokes your black carapace holes and you want to give him the Emperor's justice for his annoying behavior but the Chapter Master says he'll take away human-visitations privileges if he has to do one more PR Press Conference.
>>35460238> Marine grocery shopping at local supermarket.> Loudly complains about the price of everything going up and how everything was better half a century ago, old people talking and agreeing with him.> Reaches cashiers and just unloads a fuckload of coupons there.
>>35460325>if he has to do one more PR Press Conference.>Lord Tiberius, why didn't Lord Cyphon ask the child to stop? Like any decent human being would do?>Well that's a good question Martha, and I would remind you that Brother Cyphon is not, "a decent human being" and is, in fact, a Living Engine of War; the Emperor's wrath made manifest. Manners was not high on the hypno-indoctrination priorities.
>>35460325>if he has to do one more PR Press Conference.In the grim darkness of the far future, grunts still have to sit through behavioral lecture presentations.
>>35460359>how everything was better half a century agoThat's a weird thing about Space Marines, their age. I mean, it's not uncommon for veterans to have served for at least three centuries.A 300+ years old man today would be older than a disturbing numbers of states, including just about everything in the Americas or Africa. The dude would remember the Holy Roman Empire and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.Even by 40K standard, you would be looking at someone from your grandfather's time, assuming your family is rich enough to have been under generous quantities of juvenat drugs for generations..
>>35462977Marines have like reverse dog years. They aren't "born" until like 10 or so when they become neophytes, it takes them decades to graduate from scout, and like you said, they'll have at least one service stud before making tactical, and two or more before becoming an officer.100-200 years old is considered "young adult" for them.
>>35462977Well, in the 40k universe tech and politics have stagnated for at least 10k years, so it's a lot different there.
>>35462977And that can lead to some interstinf relationships with civilans. It is not uncommon for a family to know that their child/sibling/cousin became a Marine. But when I talk about relatives figting in the civil war im discussing a period 160 years ago. For these families their great great great great uncle might still be around and kicking.If I remember correctly the Salamanders still engage in family life on Nocturne. It is entirely possible that the same Marine talking with the old people at the market might have grown up as a child with their grand parents. A Marine that is involved in the community would be a walking eternal monolith of stories. "Why do the Johnsons and Stevenson feud?" Brother Mathius will know. ."Why was this tree planted in the city square, the plaque is all worn"Ask Brother Tyrees he remebers
>Space Marines have leave> Work out and shoot>The Captains wife is being a total bitch. I will talk to him tomorrow

Even the non-hyper mega indoctrinated monks of today's time aren't allowed to drink alcohol, you're telling me Space Marines, with all their fanaticism, are allowed to? Shit, would it even have an effect?
>>35465272>you're telling me Space Marines, with all their fanaticism, are allowed to? Shit, would it even have an effect?I haven't heard of it outside of other chapter, but the yiffs drink.And apparently have super-alcohol so that they can get drunk.
>>35465272Alcohol doesn't effect Space Marines, their stomachs perceive the alcohol as a toxin and get rid of the "getting drunk" part.
>>35465272There are brewer monksSome religions are cool with alcoholHell, even christianity is meant to be all for brewingIts just some modern ones that are against it
>>35463812The Ultramarines have that too, though to a much lesser degree. Mostly just cataloging which noble family got someone in, and such.>>35465272Space Marine alcohol is a little bit more potent. Most of what they eat and drink is not fit for human consumption. Probably preparation for when they need to drink motor oil and eat poisonous whateverbeasts on campaign.
>>35465272Normal alcohol wouldn't get marines drunk anyway.
>>35465301We know the Ultras like their wine
>>35460238They could have been in ceremonial armor for a victory parade, and then been granted liberty to enjoy the festivities. Or they could have been instructed to walk among the populace in full armor as a psychological tactic.
>>35465272They bash each other on the head after a drink to get that drunk feeling.
>>35465272It probably depends on the Chapter's favored booze. Classy Ultramarine wine probably doesn't do much but taste good. Space Wolf alcohol is probably strong enough to intoxicate a Space Marine. When the Blood Angels want a kegger, do they ask for blood from Space Wolf donors?
>>35465272>monks>not allowed to drink alcoholI'm not sure what kind of catholicism you've been practicing, but...
>>35465272Probably only strong alcohol would, which is why they're allowed to drink normal beers. Wouldn't do much, if anything.
>>35465113>mash-up of Imperial March and Mr. Blue Sky>pulls lightsaber on jump-scareOK, for propaganda from Die Maus, I'll admit I lol'd.

>>35465583This is how marines fall to slanessh.
>>35465583Protip: Ancient civilizations drank wine instead of water due to water quality reasons, not because they partied hardy 24/7.
>>354652721.>Even the non-hyper mega indoctrinated monks of today's time aren't allowed to drink alcoholTOTAL UTTER BULLSHIT2.Space Wolves
>>35457043They missed out the best bit: they allow free time because the Codex Astartes uses the the idiom "to do something at your leisure" once, so if they don't have free time they can't properly obey the Codex Astartes
>>35465673Like water quality matters to a space marine. Sewer sludge probably tastes like smoothie to them.
>>35465731>Sewer sludge probably tastes like brains to themAll space marines are zombies.
>>35465573That vid used to draw alot of hate from sw fans. I always chuckled when i see them though.

>>35466061AW YEAH FLESH EATERS
>>35466015Some of the more corrupted Night Lords enjoy scaring poor sods to death and then eating them.
Most space marines never return home. However certain chapters live with their families IE salamanders and space wolves. It was even hinted at in 4th ed fluff that space wolves could still have sex with women but they quickly removed it. Those that do see their homeworld will feel its completely different. They are separated by their training and stature. Even guardsmen who return to their homeworld usually feel like they dont fit in anymore. Dont forget about warp travel taking possibly ages. It is possible to return home after 200 years even though only 20 years may have passed in your life. You would meet your family many generations on and most likely be revered for being super old. It is even possible to exist in two places at once due to warp travel which is kinda fucked up if you think about it.
>>35466384wat? warp/time travel?why was my first thought back to the future in 40k?>pimped out landspeeder with wing doors and everything...>techmarine talking to a young scout marine>"when this baby gets up to 88mph, the flux capacitor in the warp drive will activate">look up>chaos space marine rhino, csm rises from the top hatch to use pintle bolter>techmarine: "SPACE LIBYANS, THEY FOUND ME!">gestures to the young scout marine>"SCOUTY, RUN!">goes back in time and scout marine sees his Chapter master is a nerd.>helps his chapter master get the sorita sister he always wanted, and beat up the chaos terminator bully.>huey lewis plays in the back groundcan someone writefag this? i feel i'm butchering the joke....

>>35465272All I know is, when not fighting, they seem to be pretty "warrior culture" so feasting and drinking is par for the course.
>>35465431>>35465362>>35465301>>35465272The space wolf books aren't half bad and they mention this. The beer they drink is basically paint thinner and the serfs know to leave it alone because it's lethal to humans. On top of that it has a special herb in it that suppresses a marines anti poison system which is what actually allows them to get drunk. Other marines treat alchohol like a weak poison and aren't affected much.I guess that means marines could develop a hobby for wine and spirit tasting because they wouldn't have to deal with the side effects.
>>35470778>I guess that means marines could develop a hobby for wine and spirit tasting because they wouldn't have to deal with the side effects.Slaanesh please go.

>>35473484"Toilet" has a different context in this sense to what you may think, anon. It includes shitting but also showering, shaving, plucking nose hairs, and generally making themselves pretty.
>>35473484Toilet means shower and shaving retard.
>>35473504That's kind of tragic seeing as they then spend most of their time inside armour, where no one can appreciate how pretty they are.
>>35473424>10 minutes free time
>>35465272>Bullshit. Even the non-hyper mega indoctrinated monks of today's time aren't allowed to drink alcohol, you're telling me Space Marines, with all their fanaticism, are allowed to?

What kind of music do Space Marines listen to in their spare time? Do Dark Angels listen to religious music while Space Wolves listen to Powerwolf?
The third edition codex had a slightly different daily schedule for marines: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Daily_rituals_of_a_Space_MarineFree time is up to 15min per day, but "many Chapter Masters regard free time as a frivolous waste, and a dangerous distraction in the extreme" and sleep is down to 4h.
>>35474073No, Space Wolves just listen to all wolf-themed songs that they can. They aren't allowed to speak about the time Logan Grimnar sung Hungry Like The Wolf while drunk.
>>35474070We need the guy from Bolter to Kokoro
>>35465272How the hell are the monks supposed to drink the blood of Christ during holy communion if they can't drink alcohol you fucking double heathen.
>>35473798That would be a great objective for a game of Black Crusade, steal an original bottle of Ahrimans own vintage.
>>35460129Depending on the chapter, many don't wear armor when there's not much chance of a fight.

Because I don't see how shooting loud noises at things leads to corruption, so it's possible that loyalists might use it.

>>35474219But what's so heretical about noise marine weaponry, anyway? All it is is sound-based weaponry. Sure, their sound is screaming women getting raped by daemons combined with the screeching of the Warp, but you can probably change that so it just shoots Dragonforce at you.

>>35474239What, really? I thought it was the same as coffee here, where we drink the beverage for which the meal is named, and have some different cakes along with it.
>>35474275This way they spend their free time eating instead of other distractions
>>35474275How often do you eat?
>>35474296Tea isn't a meal. It's a snack. Depending on how light their late lunch is, it might be the same.
>>35474319Oh, right, you aren't a Britbong. See >>35474239
>>35474315Two or three times a day, but it's a proper meal each time.
>>35474275Man can live on 2 or 3 meals a day, I've been doing that for years. Not to mention Marines are no ordinary people and their body should budget nutriets more effectively. They could probably do with 1 meal a day.As for breakfast being main meal and lunch being "light", that's a britbong thing if I'm not mistaken.

>>35474299That's also a thing.You have Tea, the drink, at any time. Tea, the light meal of tea and usually some cakes or scones or whatever, around 3 or 4 in the afternoon.Tea, another name for dinner, any time after 5pm. There probably won't be any drinks of tea until after.A British person will know exactly which one another Brit means.
>>35474361>I've been doing that for yearsHave you done so while engaging in military training for the majority of the day?>their body should budget nutriets more effectively.They're more than double the mass of a human. They, proportionately, have smaller stomachs and small intestines because of crowding from giant rib cages and a bunch of new organs. And they have a more intensive (thus, energy-consuming) digestive process because of resistances to poisons and a greater diversity in what they can eat. Now, I know that since it's 40k Space Marines can be just outright better, but in absence of a source to the contrary let's go with logic (and canon depictions of space marines eating a fuckton) and suppose that they, in fact, have roughly the dietary needs that their biology would imply.
>>35474323So the Ultramarines are using the working class name for the meal? What?
>>35474422>Tea, the drink, at any time.If that is asked after 5pm, would you say a cup of tea to differentiate it from >Tea, another name for dinner, any time after 5pm. There probably won't be any drinks of tea until after.?
>>35474452They say "oi, would ya fancy a cup o' tea mate?" as opposed to "It's gettin' on time for tea innit?"
>>35474361Correct, at least traditionally.Some traveller (American, I think) said that if you want the best of English food eat breakfast three times a day [paraphrased]Though these days you're more likely to find people just having toast or cereal, with coffee/tea.
>>35474452Partly >>35474476, but you just know.Normally it's obvious in context.Also Tea the meal is usually just "tea", where the drink can be "some tea"I'm about 40% sure we do it to confuse foreigners

>>35456836Even when they're not in battle, the Space Marines are busy protecting the innocent, helping little old ladies across roads, locating the parents of lost children, acquiring cats etc...
>>35474740The brain eating thing is stupid by 40k standards. I can see why they don't bring it up to often.
I liked in Brotherhood of the Snake how they seemingly spent their off time. Hiking around their islands with the scouts, playing capture the flag, seeing how deep they can dive. Would totally be what i would be doing with my own planet.

Monks, in the sense you're using, a predominantly a Catholic thing.So, let's start with one thing: Wine is literally part of Catholic Ritual, and while you can abstain from getting the blood of Christ, it would be expected that a monk fully engage in the ritual.Second, given that beer has been cleaner than water for most of human history, we can safely say that historically speaking, monks drink. Given that the church in question is not fond of changing, drink is probably allowed with a meal, so long as one is restrained. And then, finally, you've ignored an entire kind of monk - Trappists. Who make things, because work is considered prayer. One of the things they make and sell is beer. Anyone who makes anything knows that you sometimes must sample your product to assure quality.
>>35477586>Christ, it's like dwarves and their different words for gold.More like the opposite.
>>35477879No he's right.Do you not know that famous dwarf song?It goes "gold gold gold gold gold, gold gold gold gold, gold gold gold gold gold">>35477586Well like a third of modern dwarf stereotypes are british, so it's not that surprising
This thread made me picture someone on a Space Marine world who reinvents the wonderful thing known as a Slurpee, and then has a Space Marine come along one day, sample one, and then go wide eyed at it.Said man then becomes rich on Space Marine dollars and off the money of everyone else clamouring for some of what that entire chapter makes a b-line for when they go ground side for leisure time.
>>35475635So basically their time off is spent LARP'ing Tribes. I approve of this.
So the Astartes having some kind of Football tournament or something then sounds like a good idea?

>>35477683You don't even have to go that far, I don't know where you guys are from but anybody familiar with western culture knows that monks are and have always been consumers of beer and wine, and they are even sometimes permitted to get piss drunk on special occasions. Martin Luther is on record saying that people with stress should consider drinking more liberally. This is often misconstrued as advocation of alcoholism, but all he was really saying is it's not a bad idea to down a few pints if you're feeling tense all day, and that it's harder to sin when you drink at home alone and get sleepy.It depends on the order, but most Christian ascetics and especially Catholic monks, are allowed to drink at least 1 pint of beer per day. Especially the aforementioned Trappists. In fact, arguably the best beers made today are made by Trappist monks, like Le Trappes.On top of that, brewer monks are popular in media, such as the many monks of Shakespearian plays, Robin Hood stories, etc. The only justification for the monk-ness getting in the way of space marines' ability to drink alcohol is if the chapter is based on very specific eastern traditions that prohibit drinking.

>>35480309It didn't do everything perfect and is a touch more generic than I'd like, but it started out with having you design your clan, picking traits and events and writing a history in a way a bit reminiscent of what some FATE games encourage. It emphasizes the clan or mountain home as the group that your PCs represent. It focuses a bit D&D rather than Dorf Fort, too, and has specific laws that your clan follows and holds up.Other than that, it has a set of combat roles which have specific combat abilities, a bit like Dungeon World or recent versions of Magical Burst. And you get two adventurer skills and a crafter's guild. There's a stubbornness stat.All character advancement is through choosing minor abilities (again, kind of like Dungeon World) which can be based on your skills, guild, or combat role, and there's some general ones as well. Magic includes enchanting where you imbue your permanent vitality into runes, and is generally blood-oriented.Clan advancement is a bit more complicated, and is formatted as the main goal of the game, like with Rogue Trader but instead of just profit factor, you have prestige, wealth, and strength. You roll under those stats for a few things, including acquiring things for your own selves, though that's not a focus. And there's a few guidelines for specific clan advantages and that they do.The most recent PDF (July 2013) is here if you want it: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BxgyrXrUYkx-R0hyZW9mTU9VSTg&usp=sharing

The closest thing to a space marine was Andre the Giant. He was a bit thin for an Astartes at only 520 lbs, and of course lacked the non-human organs. But even he simply could not get drunk from beer. If he wanted to get drunk he had to down a fifth of vodka, and that would just get him started with a buzz. Other old-school wrestlers, huge men and the hard-core type to intentionally break their legs as part of training, would try to go out drinking with him and fall by the wayside. Note vodka is 80-proof (40% alcohol). So if you are 700 lbs, you are counting your drinks by the number of bottles of Everclear you down in a sitting, and that's if you manage to turn off one of your non-human organs.

Amateur writerfag here, and yeaaaaaah, I'm loving this thread. So much so that now I want to write an "Astartes Day Out" where a Deathwatch squad is forced to go out and enjoy a day to themselves on a relatively decent agri-world before they're sent off on another exceptionally lethal mission.Any thoughts? What chapters should make up the kill team? Why are they forced to take a day off? What "wacky" situations could they find themselves in? Maybe. If possible, could we get a little bit of feels (sorry for using the word, don't know how else to describe it) somewhere in there?
>>35483454Put a Iron Hand and a Sally together. Instand sitcom material.
>>35483454>enjoy a day to themselves on a relatively decent agri-world I'm relatively sure you mean a Civilized world. Or do you want them to just track through endless grainfields and pastures?
>>35456836When I saw the OP my thought was "Huh, so that's what the Cat homeworld looks like." Then I remembered that cats are terrestrial animals, not aliens.Not sure how my mind reached that place TBH.

We played a very lax (and fluff expanded) game of deathwatch.Now, what this means is, we mixed the d&d system with deathwatch.Now, with this out the way.one of the blood ravens denied every reward there was for him and just demanded a retirement in a civilian world with sanctioned xenos as it's planetary governor that was once besieged by everything and everyone.The only reason it survived was because his Ancestors were able to traverse and converse with beings that would even cause the warp entities to rip their eyes out with madness.He stays there to secretly continue the tradition and found love in a barkeeper.The other comrades know and approve because he showed extreme altruism, loyalty and camaraderie that was 12 of 10 for everyone that was fighting for the right cause and did feats that scared and impresses the shit out of the inquisitors.The last time we visited the planet, the governor and his wife, who became weak and needed a wheel chair, their children and grandchildren greeted us with wide and open arms.He was still maintaining his training and was babysitting his small grandchildren with his wife whenever he allowed himself a break while the parents trained the pdf.Granted, the blood raven still weared the copied dogtags of those who fought and died alongside with him,his chapter's insignia, and a bright yellow pin with the aquila in black with pride.Man, i loved that campaign.
