CHARACTERS

You will almost always control a single character per topic, unless in a social topic or cleared by a GM / individual topic creator.
There is no limit to the number of characters you can create.

Yes:
Guardsmen & Officers below the rank of Lieutenant
Admech: Enginseer and servitor ranks
Loyalist PDF guard
Medical staff
Civilians
T'au*
Kroot*
Ratlings & Ogryns
Priests & Preachers
Narisian Civilians

Speak to the GM for guidance:
Guard/PDF Officers: Lieutenant, Captain
Hidden Traitors*
Higher ranking T'au*
Higher ranking Adeptus Mechanicus
Commissars
All psykers, sanctioned or latent*
Medical Sisters of Battle
Characters with strong past Inquisition ties
Hidden Mutants (small mutations)*
Children and animals
Imperial Navy

No:
Astartes
Sisters of Battle
Knights
Horus Heresy era / time warped characters
Xenos other than T'au
Chaos / Cultists / Daemons
Inquisitors and Agents
Assassins
Open mutants (Felinids, extra limbs, etc)

* [Characters marked with * run serious, justified risk of being killed by players or NPCs. All topic creators can refuse * characters access]

Existing characters who do not match this list have historical exemption.

Speaking to the GM for guidance simply means checking both sides understand the goals of your character, and how they may be used.
In some cases, characters may cause redundancies of rank (e.g there can only ever be on Cadian Captain).

NUMBERS / CUSTOM REGIMENTS

The default and most beloved regiment on base is Cadian.
Single, unattached characters, regardless of regiment would be given the option to be folded into the Cadian Regiment. They would retain their regimental identity but answer to Captain Perray.

For further on base dynamics please see [upcoming topic regarding regiments]

Custom regiments are allowed.
Custom regiments should have maximum of one platoon (around 45-50) of guardsmen on Naris.


PERSONAL EQUIPMENT

Yes:
Guardsmen-level codex equipment
Heavy weapons teams (Morter, lascannon, etc)
Bionics
Pets
Mounts - Animal or small low tech vehicle

Speak to a GM:
Officer / heirloom level codex equipment (e.g Archeotech, refractor shields, relics)
Specialist Admech equipment
Specialist psyker equipment
Xeno equipment for Xeno characters

No:
Functional Astartes Tech / Power armour
Corrupted or Chaos weapons or items
Xeno equipment for human characters

Note: The funnier something is, the more likely it is to be approved.
For example, Blutock "requisitioning" a hab block door for his melee shield is absolutely thematic.

VEHICLES:

All vehicles require checking with a GM.
All vehicles require permission to enter a topic.
Whilst you can create and personalise a vehicle, and make tank crews, etc, a vehicle becomes group property.

Yes:
Walkers
Bikes
Chimeras
Battle tanks
Artillery

No:
Air transports or flying craft.
"Super heavy" war machines, damaged or functional:
Baneblades, knights, stealth or crisis suits, anything that would require the old Apocalypse rules on tabletop.
Xenos crafts controlled by PCs

Mordian Characters:
Others: / / /
