This is just an interest check, so just a short summary will be stated here. I would like to make a World War I story , about a fictional squad of French and Brittish, who, after charging during an artillary barrage becomes dis jointed from their main forces. So scavaging becomes invaluabe. I have dubbed them "The Lost Battalion", though in reality it's a 6-man squad with 1 field nurse. Let me make a few things clear; 1. I am not being sexist in saying officially the nurse, who will need to female, isn't part of the squad. You have to rember the time period. Women just werent allowed to be soldiers, even being a doctor was pushing it. 2. That said, my charcter who is the sergeant and commands , will teach the nurse how to take lives as well as save them. This is where the romance can start. Romance is optional. 3. This is WWI. Up to this pont many of the weapons, tools, and warmachines had never bwfore been used before. The shock and awe of zepplins leveling cities, clunky tanks lurch through no man's land and the dread German U-boat reaking havoc on supply lines. at this point planes couldnt drop bombs and were used for aerial dogfighting and parachutes hardly worked. And one can hardly mention WWI without thinking of Chlorine or mustard gas 4.This story of these unsung heroes who fought alone, and died fighting Germans; they fought togther, bled togther and died together. Characters WILL die. This isn't meant to be a story about the outcome. Its a story about bravery and fighting even when the odds are stacked heavily against you. 5. I will let you choose how your character dies--No Rambos. But if a bridge has to be blown to stop reinforcements that is acceptable. Given sufficient support--I'll list weapons, locations , positions to be filled--and make an IC. if you have any questions, ideas or CONSTRUCTIVE critisim. I'll listen and take it in account. But sometings I won't change.
