This RP will use the same familiar rules/guidelines previous RPs have relied on. Things like- no double posting, no god-moding, keeping OOC posts in here and not in the content thread, and of course being respectful to everyone.
Zerocide - Hive World of the Imperium with nearly three billion residents.
-Landscape & Geography -
Outside the city are agricultural compounds connected by dusty roads. The terrain is similar in makeup to our own moon, with the exception of scrub grass, shrubs, and other hardy plant life. The planet is surrounded by a thick and polluted atmosphere that keeps temperatures falling anywhere between 20-100 degrees depending on the season.
Zerocide Major - The proper name for the city (its only city) on Zerocide. The city is also referred to as Zim, UnderZim, & ZM in certain circles.

Chaos Farseer wrote: A List of Prominent Individuals upon Zerocide (In rough order of appearance)
Composed by the one and only Chaos Farseer. More than one would be a problem.
Servants of the Imperium
Richard Brock (Jason): Rich is captain of the 501st Guardian Detachment, a squad of highly trained pilots. Of course, he didn’t become captain without being an even better pilot. They’re flying as interference of the many, many Ork landings.
Timothy Argus (IGfanatic): Hey look! IG might not kill this guy instantly! Bricks (yes that’s his nickname) is a bodyguard for Planetary Governor Fura. But only because he gets paid.
Brother Poltas (Bone2pick): Poltas is a SPESH MAREEN of the Doom Eagles chapter brought to Zerocide for the mundane job of training recruits. Yeah, that sucks. Therefore, he views the upcoming battle with Orks with a bit more enthusiasm. After all, he’s Dead Already.
Artyom Vsevolod (jackmrnorris94): Artyom is a Guardsman who’s survived something he shouldn’t have. He doesn’t speak about it. In fact, he doesn’t speak at all. He just sits on the steps of the Governor’s Palace and strums his guitar, waiting to kill. Maybe he killed Marbo and took his personality.
Eight (commando_jim): Eight’s a Stormtrooper geared for boarding actions. He’s so well groomed for serving the Emperor that he forgot his name. Or, well, he could have just forgotten. It’s not like his parents died or anything.
Anyu Maka (respect92): She’s a Vindicare Assassin! And, um... she has a gun? Maybe some bullets? Oh! She can shoot stuff! Did I mention that?
Rickter Mackenzie (daemon slayer): Another Vindicare? Okay, okay. Maybe Fura is that important. Except, well... Rickter retired. Last I checked that wasn’t possible but okay. We’ll go with it. He’s only here because he lives here.
Hruk Degratz and Milos Bane (Shas mechanicus): Round and Pound are your classic comedic heavy weapons team. One is really big and tough while the other actually knows how to aim. Don’t ask me which one’s which.
Cassandra Elisim (BlackYog): Cassandra is an Adeptus Arbite who ruthlessly maintains the slums of the Underhive of Zerocide. She is the law!
The Xenos Menace
FR583-Omega (Jayertheslayer): A non-combat Necron ‘scout’ with the ability to phase between dimensions. This somehow makes him faster. Also, he doesn’t kill but he does capture. Ask Jayer nicely and you might get to kill him. Order one today!
Nocturus (Crusherfex): Nocturus is a Caradochian. Yeah, I don’t know what that is either. He’s one of a group of assorted alien mercenaries and they’re here to help out Governor Fura. Not out of any sense of loyalty, unless you include a loyalty to cash.
Petkor Yankovitch (Tuomir): Yanko is a human, but for conspiring with Xenos he shall be killed like one! He’s pilot of Nocturus’ band of mercenaries aboard the Relentless and he would probably be shot on sight if he wasn’t hired by Zerocide.
Grung da Git (joeman45): Grung da git neva fights ‘m in da face. ‘es a Kommando, an’ hes job is ta sneak n’ smash. ‘e’ll smash ya, an’ then he’ll take yer stuff. Eh, mebbe ‘e’ll do dat afta he gets on da moon, wot’s its name.
Veillayarinalil (Chaos Farseer): Velarynl is an Eldar Farseer who always considers the grand scale of things. Yes, I said that right. Why use short and painful plans when it can be achieved effortlessly over a century? Why fight in hand to hand when the enemy can be killed from the ultimate high ground?
National Strategic Space Command Mainframe (NotSoNinja): Remember cloud computing? Chances are you don’t, because that’s against the all-mighty teachings of the Omnisiah and heresy will result in your instantaneous termination. But out there, somewhere in the ruins of an old human civilization, is a sentient AI cloud. And he just woke up. His/hers/its awesomeness radiates throughout the entirety of space, so much so that I’m not going to tell you anything else about it. You go witness it for yourself.
Below is an example of a Hive World to help give you a visual of Zerocide Major.
