Task Force Lima (Reboot)(Spec-Ops) OOC
Inspired by MOH Warfighter+Others
Special Forces. The elite. Those, who make the impossible, possible. Those, who march or die (French Foreign Legion). Those, who fight for their Fatherland (GROM). Those, who's will is decisive. (KSK) Those, who say it pays to be a winner (SEAL). But most importantly, they are those, who dare win (SAS+ other). From these mottos, you can tell- They're not your average bunch of soldiers. In their own forces, they perform operations that can change the course and order of battle, and solve problems, quickly.
But sometimes, even special forces don't have the reach due to diplomatical, and political reasons. That's why Task Force Lima was proposed and set up in mid-2014, after a new wave of terrorism- from the Philippines to Afghanistan, Sudan to Iraq had to be combated by those who normally could not.
Gathered from around the world, they are the elite. Organized into a Task Force, named Lima, they are assembled as a group that can perform tasks in places that normal special forces would find hard to reach. They are made up of many nationalities- of special forces from around the world, and act on combined directives from the UN and NATO, as well as their own directives to resolve problems. Whether it is a counter-terrorist operation in a urban environment, a hostage rescue operation in a Columbia, or a anti-insurgency op in Afghanistan, the Task Force is equipped and prepared to deal and assist in these operations- and fight back against the global threat of terrorism.
Welcome to the world of Task Force Lima...
Okay, so if you've read through that, and still don't know what this is (HOW? ), then this is a Special Forces roleplay. Based around a squad of elite operatives, picked from the best Special Forces regiments and companies in the world, they fight terrorism in counter insurgency and other operations, that many other special forces units cannot reach. They are a catch-all really- something for the UN/NATO to use to deploy for situations usual Spec-Ops operatives can't.

Apart from the obvious few that need to be stated, nothing needs to really be said.
1)Don't Godmod (f***ng hell, this is a pretty obvious one.)
2)Don't make your character OP. They may be Special Forces- and this allows a degree of badass-ness in them. They won't be a slob- they will be in close to peak athletic shape, very proficient in killing people (in many ways), and probably skilled at a lot of other stuff too. But for crying out loud, don't make your character invincible. If they get shot, they will obviously need some kind of medical care reasonably soon after taking the bullet, or they will die painfully, and so on. If they fall out of a three storey building, chances are they will die or break most of his bones, probably meaning that either way, without a strecher/bodybag, they will not go anywhere.
3) You can kill your character if you wish, at any point (though PM the rest of the RPers first, or me). However, if you break any of the rules (twice), I reserve the right to make sure that a sniper's bullet finds it's way into your character's brain, or some other horrible death.
4) Have fun. Believe me, you will..

Appearance: (No Anime- can be written, or a picture, or even both if the character needs to be detailed further.)
Loadout: (A default loadout your character has. You can change it at any point, when your character has access to the armory, to tailor it for a specific mission.)

History: Jan was born in Krakow, Poland, in the times when communism was still around. His father served in the Polish Military, as a Lieutenant in Communist times, and Jan strived to follow in his footsteps. He knew that the past hadn't been great to him- but there was something about serving Poland that stuck out to Jan, and he had a natural talet for being a soldier, with the right skills and mindset to lead. After graduating from university, he went straight into officer training for the Polish Land Army, where he wanted to at least get recognized and lead something. He ended up in the Paras, but he soon proved his worth- he was requested to transfer to GROM, an elite Polish special forces unit, and he quickly showed them what he was made of. He led multiple missions into Afghanistan, usually without much firesupport in anti-insergency operations, designed to root out key Taliban locations such as mortar and weapons trading outposts. He proved extremely successful in this aspect- for two years, his squad's success rate was seen as one of the best in the Polish Military, taking on target after target with minimal collateral or civilian losses, due to the leadership and local know-how that Jan had picked up. His skill with silently picking away enemies, and simply distorting the balance of enemy presence made each mission simpler than it first looked, with Jan employing whatever he could to get the job done. Hell, some even said that he was one of the best Special-Forces commanders in the Coalition- and was quickly promoted to Captain, for his next move- to Task Force Lima, where he would lead a squad into action. He knew that it was a far cry from serving Poland- and he took it gladly, aware that he'd just have to brush up on his English a little.
Miscellaneous: Along with his service record, his talent with languages is quite remarkable. He speaks English, Polish and Russian fluently, as well as speaking a little German, Pashto and Arabic (limited, but enough to do a conversation).

What about cross training such as radioman, medic, and such?
BY THE GOURDS!
I'd do medic, if I could; otherwise, I'll do the marksman.
I'll restructure the classes then- I think it was hard, but I think I can go on that. In short, all of us have some basic medical training- and that was why I thought it wasn't really required. Still, I'll have one specialist in it, and I don't think we really need a radioman (due to most of the squad's use of comms and so on).
EDIT: Okay, medic is now combined with "Pointsman". You can have that if you want.

Kk,was just a suggestion, I've read that the green berets are cross trained in eachothers specialties just in case one man goes down someone else will have a knowledge of the downed mans specialty.
I know what you mean- I guess we've mostly got each others skills, just to a lesser extent. For example, the newly created Medic/Pointman is a close quaters soldier, along with more medical specialization- though practically all of our characters will know how to do some extent of what he does, so yeah.
I guess this is now full? All of the slots seem to be filled.
Sorry, but it's full at the moment. If anyone drops out, I'll let you know- till then though, I guess I can't really accept any more.
BY THE GOURDS!
Name: Zach Frost
Original Special Forces: SAS
Appearance: Zach has spiked black hair; comparable to Phoenix Wright's. He also has slightly tanned skin and black eyes. Other than the medical box and extra grenades, he's got pretty standard equipment; camo top and bottom, ammo pockets, etc.
Loadout: A Kel-Tec SUB 2000: 3x zoom scope & extended mag, Steyr TMP: Suppressed
Six(6) Frag grenades
Two(2) E.M.P. grenades
Three(3) days of rations
Four(4) Water bottles
History: Originally an Alaskan emergency doctor, he was an expert in his field. However, he eventually got bored of the constant downpour of patients and surgery; it was mostly repeated incidents, such as car crashes. He switched to a notably less stable job of a field medic. Zach had already saved about 3 dozen people in his short career; he rose in rank rapidly, and he. The soldiers in Task Force Lima would more than likely need his medical ability for bullet wounds or similar. They recruited him not only for his medical skill, but for his natural marksmanship and quick-thinking. This compound of characteristics made him a very reliable part of Lima.
1. Why is an Alaskan in the SAS, a British force? No way that could happen- I don't need to list why. History is a bit off- your character is a Pointman first, a Medic second. He would need more than just civilian experience, and at the age of 20, he's way too young to be a medic, let alone a special forces operative (so add on roughly 3 to 4 years, and then he will seem at least like a rookie.)
2. That SUB-2000 is semi-automatic, and not used by the SAS for a start. It's not a special-forces weapon at all- it's mainly used for law enforcement. The TMP is a Machine-Pistol- I am very tempted to call it an SMG, but be lucky that I have let you off on that one there.
3. He can't be a Major at that age, or training. Trust me on this- officers are usually in command of squads, so at least put the rank down to an Enlisted, or NCO level (second in command will be an Officer, of Lieutenant levels probably). He's also a field-medic- so this doesn't make sense either, to be a Major
4. EMP Grenades don't exist. Period. No matter how much evidence you show to prove there is, it's a fact that they are in research, and nowhere near in use for Special Forces teams.
5. Brush up on this, and then re-do. I understand effort was put in- but please, just take into account what I've done and said, along with the exemplar of my previous OOC, and then do it. Not saying it's bad- but those 4 points are hugely out of it, and make your character seem unsensical. I mean, a medic/pointman with a semi-automatic pistol, EMP grenades and the rank of Major is realistic, right? Of course not. Sorry I crashed down on it- but you've got to get something up that at least fits. If you need help with weaponry, or equipment, let me know, and I can lend some advice. Till then, I cannot accept that at all.
