Keeps this thread clear so I can add people easier.
Well, some of us have been discussing this on Chat, so heres the fluff we have:Ok, now onto how we will run this, each member will choose a placing in the chapter, the 1st Company, Captains (Mods only), All positions will be available to anyone, also vehicles, crew etc are available if you ask. Assault Marines can take bikes etc too if you wish, get together with your friends and make squads even. We just want fluff for your member of the Chapter, even if it is a vehicle and make the fluff realistic .The Sons of the Librarium was a chapter founded in the early 41st Millenium to combat the new ever-growing threat of the Age of Ending, their primary charge was to gather information and help other chapters and even races in their charges, this chapter was founded to rival the Eldar’s Black Library. It is unknown where the geneseed of the Sons of the Librarium arose from.
The Chapter follows its own version of the Codex Astartes, with variant company sizes.
Example sizes follow:
Fifty Tactical Marines
Ten Assault Marines
Ten Devastator Marines
This weird company size is due to their ways of teaching to the new recruits of the Chapter, this allows the knowledge to be passed on to the next generation.
The 1st Company is also different to the Codex, example follows:
Thirty Tactical Marines
Thirty Assault Marines
Two Land Raiders
The Tactical and Assault Marines in the 1st Company are among the highest valued members of the Chapters being trained by the Veterans of the 1st Company as replacements when it comes to their time of duty. The Dreadnoughts and Land Raiders are permanently assigned to the 1st Company. The Honour Guard consists of the Librarians and Chaplains of the Chapter as these members withhold the Chapters history as foremost. The Chapter Master of the Sons of the Librarian wanders the galaxy readily with his most trusted members of the Chapter taking over the running of the Chapter until he returns.
The Sons of Librarium is an ancient order of Space Marines. It is uncertain when the Sons were formed, and their status as a true Chapter is equally uncertain. What is known of the Sons of Librarium, is that some time during the Heresy, or shortly thereafter, marines were gathered from each of the prestigious chapters and charged with the defense of the knowledge of Man. Across the galaxy, ancient shrines of dusty lore held the secrets of the Space Marines, Adepts, and even -it is whispered- the true account of the Emperor's life before his Ascension.
At the time of their creation, members of each chapter were sent to represent their Masters amidst the Librarium. Now it is rumored that each chapter sends one to three of it's prime warriors or scholars to serve in the Shrines, much in the same way as the Deathwatch is created. However, unlike the Deathwatch, once a marine is sent from his chapter to the Librarium, he will not return until his century and a half term is completed. Legend holds that when a marine is sent to join the Librarium, his chapter gives him a funerary send off. This may be attributed to the high rate of attrition over the 150years of service, but darker theories persist that it allows the donor-chapter to replace the marine and remain at 1,000 men.
The chapter also pulls men directly. Many of the Tactical marines and even a few captains and other veteran members are recruited directly from the local populations near the very Shrines that they protect.
Each member of the chapter bears some mark of their origin, whether they were initiated within one of the hallowed shrines, or were sent to represent another chapter. The most common method of showing this iconography is in the form of a small shield located near the shoulder, although some warriors bear their heraldry on pennants or amulets.
The Sons of Librarium are considered a ‘fleet based’ chapter, much in the same way as the Black Templars. The main body of the Chapter plies the stars, engaged in crusades for more knowledge, running battles fought to regain lost tomes of lore, or just patrolling between their many assets. The chapter maintains a multitude of hidden shrines and secluded monasteries. Each of them is manned by a small number of the elite marines, who rotate their duty between their other ship-board brethren. Highly monastic in nature, the marines conceal their true nature in heavy, hooded robes. They are renowned for their silence, but even more so for their scrutiny of visitors. Many of these shrines remain hidden from the eyes of even the Council of Terra, guarding knowledge privy to only those whom the chapter has deemed worthy.
Beyond their fleet/monastery nature, the Sons of Librarium are a largely codex chapter, fielding the standard 10 companies of 100.
this way, those of us with existing armies who want to make use of our persona, have a chance to do so, while those who have no former allegance can simply say they were directly recruited. Also makes sense, having us so spread out. It's not like we all congregate in one place anyway...
And Chapter scheme:
Approximate Colours, Highlight/shade accordingly. Company Colours go on arms or pads as example above.
Blue = Ultramarine Blue
White = Skull White
Bone = Dheneb Stone
Eyes = Ice Blue
Soft Armour/Gun = Boltgun Metal
1st Company = Shining Gold
2nd Company = Chainmail
3rd Company = Dwarf Bronze
4th Company = Brazen Brass
5th Company = Tin Bitz
6th Company = Mechrite Red
7th Company = Dark Angel Green
8th Company = Desert Yellow
9th Company = Mordian Blue
10th COmpany = Adeptus Battlegrey
So get posting, claim your spot, get your fluff up and we’ll add you to the next post Also if you really want to, you can convert a marine and paint it up in the LO scheme . Be cool I think, can't wait to see those that do.
