+SITUATION+
Brothers, I bring sad tidings from the Rock. Those pointy-eared maggots had attacked it and the damage they inflicted was substantial, but the combined might of the Dark Angels and several of its successors saw those arrogant pirates back to whatever hell they came from. The Techmarines have inspected the damaged area and realized that the library containing the lists of all the Successors of the Lion had been destroyed.

+MISSION+
Brothers, the register of successor will need to be rebuilt. You are being tasked with delving into your own personal archives and scribing a datafile of a successor or written account of the Unforgiven’s exploits across the galaxy.

+EXECUTION+
- CREATE YOUR OWN SUCCESSOR

Write up a datafile, Index Astartes or Imperial Armor article about an Unforgiven Successor. Templates have been provided by Brother Tyler HERE OR use this template below:

Chapter Name (include a painted marine or picture from SM painter)

Origins
- Include Founding if it is known
- What made that Chapter come into being
- Are they a Successor of a Successor?

Present Activities
- Notable Characters
- Notable Battles
- Narrative about the Chapter at the dawn of the 41st Millennium
- Are they hunters of the Fallen? Do they even know about the Fallen?

Home World or Fleet based
- Description of the planet that they are based
- Can include any rituals

Combat Doctrine
- Deathwing & Ravenwing in use?
- Armor Heavy?
- Specializations?
- Intolerances?

Organization
- Inner Circle?
- Deathwing?
- Ravenwing?
- Color schemes

Beliefs

Gene-Seed
Dark Angels, Obviously!

Battlecry
"Poke 'em in the eye!"
"Repent! For tomorrow you die!"

Bonuses for extra artwork and banners

- WRITE A STORY ABOUT THE UNFORGIVEN
Write up a complete narrative about the great deeds of the Unforgiven. As above there will be bonuses for additional artwork, but it will not be required.

- SUBMISSION
All stories are to be submitted by the end of May. They can be submitted in one of three ways.
1. Post a link in this thread to your story topic. Finished story is to be in the 1st Post.
2. PM them to Grand Master Belial.
3. E-mail them to bvosberg811@me.com
Submitted stories and datafiles will be submitted to the Fortress of the Unforgiven website as well as being added to the Librarium

+SERVICE & SUPPORT+
I will be answering all your questions that you all may have and any FAQ’s will be posted in this thread. Select members of the Inner Circle will do judging of the articles. The Shadow Guard has generously donated 4 prizes that will be awarded as follows:

- Most Unique (an idea(s) that has not been brought up before)
- Most Thorough (depth and elaborately written)
- Most Zany (a Fun/comedic successor to counter the somber motif)
- Most Artistic (an artwork based one)

The other members of the Inner Circle will be around to provide support and to help out. The Chaplains have been asked to sheathe their Blades of Reason in favor of the rubber Thunder Hammers and silly-string flamers.

Here are some of the prior works located on the Fortress Website.

+COMMAND+
I have taken on the Iron Halo of Responsibility for this competition but Moderators still have full control of the Meltas, Airlocks and Cell Block 42.

As a Lexicanium, I will modify the files slightly for inclusion in the Librarium once it is back in operation. You did the hard part of writing it. I will honor you by making it ready for the Librarium.

IA's will be due at the end of May as well.

We are after the fluff more than the rules. They can be included but will most likely be removed when added to the Librarium and Fortress.

I will be participating in this as well, but I am ineligible to win anything.

Oooh, definitely in on this. Is it ok if I use my embryonic "DIY" chapter, the Brothers Penitent? (DIY as in GW have mentioned the name, but done nothing else with them, including identifying their geneseed).

You may use them. There is a small chance GW will add to them, but we can say that with so many chapters. Duplications may occur.

I was hoping that this would be around the end of term around the world so after exams are done, you'd have a chance to be creative.

Need to keep that creativity sharp for next Year's LPC, right?

Darn, had this dropped sooner, I would have based my army and painted around the DIY concept, rather than Angels of Redemption. With how little fluff they have anyway, it would be like making it from the ground up anyway. The cogs and sprockets are moving though, regardless.

No exams for me, just oodles of coursework to get done for the end of May. Throw an MSc level dissertation on top of that and i'm finding myself stretched rather thin at the moment. I'll need time to relax though and have been toying with many little successor ideas for years, perhaps this is the motivation i need to flesh them out? lets hope so :rolleyes:

Speaking of the LPC... will this count towards fulfilling my obligation to the librarium? Having failed three times i am somewhat in debt!

Yes, this will count toward you LPC obligations. I did not put a limit on the number of entries, so you can write your three articles and be clear of your debt.

Awsome!
I was just thinking about writing up a DA succesor to compliment my Emperor's Immortals ;)
I really want to do something noble at this point, and the Unforgiven have an obvious catch that will fit in perfectly with my envisioned knight-philosophors.
Maybe I'll call the Benedictors, don't think they have any fluff as it is.
Not that everyone else isn't welcome to do their own version of course :)
Also, nice to work with a deadline for this sort of stuff! Hopefully it'll keep me from getting sidetracked as I'm wont to be...

Looking forward to see what people come up with (and to join the Unforgiven)!

It needs to be new. You can post the link to the old work but for it to be a fair competition, it would need to be new. My Saints of the Angels would be ineligible as well as I wrote them up with my Differences of the Successors article.
