The year is 1916 — The So-Called “War To End All Wars” has been raging on for well-over two years now. France has managed to put up a hefty fight, but it’s amounted to nothing against the fierce fighters of the Imperial German Army. There have been many rumors of A new assault against The Allied Powers among the men in your squad, but there hasn’t been anything to actually confirm them.

As days of idly standing by and waiting for orders from the high command seemingly drag on, your squad soon receives orders from The Commander of your Company to go over and scout out the enemy lines; all in the hopes of finding an easy route to flank the French from.

The garrisoned French appear too weak to defend themselves against the Kaiser’s Army upon your first glance; seemingly too busy bickering amongst themselves to put up any sort of fight. This should be an easy task for you... right?

There are nine of you. Whether all of you return in one piece is solely up to fate, and fate alone.

Hi there, and welcome to my first Interest check! In this RP you will be playing as German Stormtroopers on the Western Front during The Great War. I’m accepting at least five people to take part in this story! If you’re interested, the main links can be found down below!
(Note: This thread will continue to be updated over time. Do not be alarmed if elements of the story are changed, as this is only a WIP.)

Heyo @Callidex i'm curious to know what kind of Regiment we'll be playing as? Assault-Pioneers (Stormtroopers), Cavalry, Regular infantry, Mountain/Jager troops? Would love to hear your ideas! ^_^

P.S I absolutely loved watching the film version of 'Alls Quiet on The Western Front'! :D It's a shame that there are so few films, books and other mediums that cover the German point of view, other than the really well known battles such as Stalingrad and of course the WW1 Western Front. :P

As you are new to Forum-based RPs, i'd just like to say that i'm merely a PM away if you require any help! ^_^ I don't bite! ;)

That’s great to hear! Always glad to see a friendly face every now and then, you know? Lol. :D

As for that question about what regiment we’d be playing as, I was mainly looking to go for infantry. After all, a grand majority of the newly-called-up recruits were placed into basic infantry regiments. However, your character can have a certain specialty or role that they can fulfill if you’re able to prove that you know what that role actually *does* in your application letter.

The CS has been posted! You can find it and apply for a standard position here: Realistic/Modern - Der Kaiserschlacht CS

We will also be accepting a limited amount of special characters (NCO's, Officers, and other roles) so if you feel yourself capable of holding such a position, apply now or forever hold your peace!

Also, a Discord Server will be established for the RP group in the coming days! Stay tuned, My Comrades!

I'm interested! Is it possible to apply as a telegraphist/technician rather than a soldier?

And maybe it'd be more interesting if we were all in one unit rather than separate, so that our characters can form connections?

Yes! You can apply for a non-military related position! The only reason I hadn’t included anything about civilian jobs is because the standard position for most newcomers will be in the military. It’s based on the front lines, after all.

Also, I’m planning to make each new player under the 29th Division. Since we don’t have enough to fill three infantry brigades, a good chunk of us will be under the 57. Infanterie-Brigade,
6. Badisches Infanterie-Regiment Kaiser Friedrich III Nr. 114

It may or may not be historically accurate, but the 29th was stationed in France! I’d rather be a little accurate than to just completely make something up.

Hi, I'd like to try my hand since I'm interested in the setting. Been mostly trying to get back into rping here and thought this would be a good place to do that. But I do have a quick question for you before I invest, how often are you looking for people to post?

I’m not looking for a lot of activity, but 1-2 times a week or more would be great!
