The All Guardsmen Party
« on: December 18, 2014, 09:19:27 am »

Hi folks, I've wandered onto this forum to share a story about bravery, incompetence, and the excessive use of detpacks.

This is at heart a write-up of an Only War and Dark Heresy campaign, but only briefly touches on the mechanics in the first two chapters and it shouldn't be a problem if you do not like or play either game. Be aware that this thing gets rather long in the later chapters and there is a significant tone shift after the prologue. Sorry about that, the story has been continuing for a while now and I lack any sort of editor.

The Adventures of the All Guardsmen Party

As a quick fore-word, I'm splitting these into chapters embedded into this forum, but everything is available in the main archive here:
http://www.theallguardsmenparty.com/



For laziness reasons I'm no longer keeping this list of image links up to date, you can find all of the latest chapters here:

Oh hey, the All Guardsmen Party!
I read a couple of episodes of this when I stumbled upon it a while ago, it's great stuff.
Thanks for writing it up/sharing it, and for posting it here. Should be a bit easier for me to (remember to) read it all, now. :)

Eh, reading's not so bad.
So, do you play the campaign in person, or is it an online game? How did you amazing lunatics come to be in the same campaign? Just how many drugs did your GM take to come up with the weird shit in Discount Spaceship? How long have you been playing all up?

Christ.
I just sacrificed about..... 4-5 hours of my life to reading that. It's nearly 1 AM right now.
Worth it.

This is amazingly good shit. I've only read up to Part 5. Loved the Box. Would read more but I've been reading for something like 2 or 3 hours, it's 2 AM, and I should get some sleep. Probably.

More, more!

The game should still be going because as far as I can tell the last post in Chapter 8. was only a month ago.

The game is still going and I'm 3 sessions behind on the writing.

I'm aiming to post the next chapter on the 9th or 10th.

I'm not sure how much better your (excellent, I may add) writing is making it it seem, but your DM appears to be absolutely incredible.
