    10 KB Jopall Indentured Squadrons girder 04/24/10(Sat)06:37 No.9395826  
    These guys don't get enough attention.

    >Children born on the planet of Jopall incur a massive debt for their own care to the government, that they cannot even begin to pay until their adolescence. One of the most popular ways of paying off that debt is by enlistment into the Indentured Squadrons. The Jopall are unique in that they encourage individuality and ingenuity, which is rewarded with a small financial recompense, which of course helps in paying off their debts.

    >The Indentured squadrons fight defensively, conserving resources until the last minute. Even so, the underhanded tactics they employ can end up being rather expensive in the end. Squads may take it upon themselves to sabotage enemy units and supplies, and Jopall snipers will strike at targets of opportunity at any given moment. In one infamous incident during the 3rd War for Armageddon, a group of Jopall officers posed as traitors and delivered three Basilisk artillery pieces and a great deal of shells to an Ork Big Mek who had already captured several Imperial troop transports. As the proud Mek was parading the weapons to his Warlord, the Officers detonated explosives hidden on the guns, with just enough force to cook off the artillery shells, which wiped out a sixth of the Orks' artillery. The officers were stripped of their rank for the voluntary destruction of the three Basilisks, but they were very popular among the rest of the company.

    It's like an entire regiment of those goofball, swindler soldiers you see in the movies. They're practically tailor-made for an action-comedy series of novels.

    >The Jopall Indentured Squadrons Imperial Guard regiment are known for their marksmanship and their concern for money. Jopall is a peacefull agri world, whose citizens are born in debt to their government. Jopall citizens spend most of their adult life working to pay this debt. One way to fast track repayment is to join the Jopall Indentured Squadrons, and as such it is considered vitally important by members of the Jopall Indentured to keep an accurate tally of every foe killed, to be used later to argue the value they have given to the regiment.

    Here's an idea:

    An Imperial center of finance experiences a meltdown due to unscrupulous practices of its financial institutions. This places the entire sub-sector's economy at risk.

    As such, the Imperial government deems intervention necessary, in the form of several trillion crowns in bail-outs...and a detachment of Munitorium commissars attached to the 157th Jopalli Infantry Regiment...which lost everything betting on that world's stock market.

    In a massive wave of desperation the financial minds of the adminitstratum and now finite but expansive resources of the minutorum hoarded every astropath they could get thier hands on to send one desperate message to the heart of the Imperium, to the highlord of commerce himself.

    Sitting motionless in meditation upon his spidery throne, clad in the finest silks known to man and alien alike. Within one of the great wings of the highlords within the Imperial palace sat he, followed by what can only be described to a common man of the Imperium as a great horde or a pillgramage of scribes and adepts many ranks deep and files wide, connected to a vast network that is the GrandMaster of the Administratum.

    The ancient form slowly opened an eye, the other still within it's REM sleep of processing, a tome-prompter sputterd to life flickering in a crimson panick like a servant bearing dire news.
    The Grand admin unsheathed an arm from his fine silk weave, and reviewed what his mechanical servant heeded... Suddenly in a great rage the mental giant moved more than, than he had in centuries; stocks plumeting, liabillities filed in a great mess of unregulated economy all the scribes, servitors and adepts looked up in a mixture of fear and panic.
    Assasins had to be sent, corperate owners replaced with capable minds, new cartels formed, mountains of troops moved across the stars, the expenses and logistics made veins across the wizened administrators face bulged in fury.

    Well not IG related but my god, this is either the most mary sue chapter or the most kick ass chapter ever!

    >The Exorcists are a Space Marine Chapter with a very dubious founding history. They were formed at the end of M35, or early M36, in the Thirteenth Founding. They have a somewhat worrying creation as they were test subjects for a new form of Daemonhunters. A single communication remains on the subject of the creation, and is sent from a Genetor-Major of the Xenobiologis core, named Lauram Clelland.

    >The Marines of the Chapter underwent a process known as "Daemonic Possession Therapy". Each Marine was, under very tight security, subject to possession by a minor denizen of the Warp. The creature was allowed to remain within the host body for twelve hours until they were cast out by a Daemon Hunter. Some of the Marines were so damaged physically and psychologically that they had to be terminated. Most however survived and needed only minor reconstructive surgery.

    >After a minor period of recuperation the subjects were taught the ways of combating Daemons, trained in the use of the 666 verses of the Book of Exorcisms and equipped with the weapons of an Exorcist. To test their new creations, the Marines were put into combat on a Daemon World on the northern edge of the Eye of Terror. A squad of the Grey Knights were held in reserve, just in case they turned on their masters, while the Exorcist Space Marines achieved a kill ratio of 97:1. Most impressive, especially against Daemons. Test results showed that their adrenaline production tripled and the levels of serotonin dropped drastically. This made the Marines much more aggressive and gave them increased combat effectiveness. Only 1% of the Marines fell to Daemonic infestation again, but the scientists believed they could eradicate the likelihood of this happening. On the basis that their souls are uncorruptible and pure, they are effectively invisible to most warp daemons as their souls do not register for the leak of the mortal corruption. Only extremely powerful daemons are able to spot them. In game terms this ability is forsaken for balancing purposes.3

    >They then went on to produce an entire chapter of Exorcists, troops daemonically possessed, then freed by their own will power. Presumably this process effectively turns them into Illuminati, individuals totally illuminated to the nature of Chaos and daemons, and incorruptible to its temptations. However, seeing as how they are possessed by minors daemons as opposed to Greater Ones, they are not nearly as illuminated or incorruptible as the true Illuminati

    >Twelve of their companies were sent to Armageddon to fight in the Third War for Armageddon. They maintain two additional Scout Companies to have high influx of neophytes. Without such, the Exorcists will cease to exist due to their highly unconventional training methods.7

    >The Exorcists were involved in the Badab War against rebel Chapters5. The Exorcists are also one of only four Space Marine Chapters to have both fought in the Third War for Armageddon and against the Thirteenth Black Crusade.2,3

    Ryza pattern is the oldest pattern around. It served the Imperial Army during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy, and soldiers on in the Imperial Guard.

    How would promotion work?

    There's no point promoting people for good service - they'll buy themselves out before you can use them...

    Does this mean that success is rewarded with cash penalties, failure more so?
    The Commander could hardly be a wildly wealthy individual, because any man with sense is gone the second he can afford to be.
    Or are all the Officers family men with unfortunately fertile wives?

    Well, you've got two aspects of being Indentured. First is the obvious money issues; second is the contract. If you get promoted, you sign on a longer contract. In addition, you get payed more; sure you can eventually buy yourself out, but officers generally make a great deal of money. There's even a section in their combat doctrine on war profiteering!
    >> Anonymous 04/24/10(Sat)09:25 No.9397319
    Oh, actually that could make sense.

    The non-military positions are filled with the sons and relatives of successful Commanders, bought back from the Administratum at birth and allowed to choose a career of their own. in this way, dynasties establish themselves across various sectors of the Jopal economy, and at the root of each of these business dynasties is an honored ancestor, such as Jan Dolo, whose famous and inexpensive victory at the Gates of Tooine bought decades of free birth to his family.
