The Ultramarines are born

Day 1,192, 19:39 Published in USA USA by Henry Pfeiffer Arundel


Today the Ultramarines are born.

Just as the day Seal Team Six was born will forever hold a place in eUSA history, today, Day 1192, will forever be remembered as the day the Ultramarines punched their way out of the womb. We strive to serve our country in the best way we know how.

By killing everyone that stands in her way.

The goals are simple:

Have fun
Kill bad guys
Have some more fun


We will work with the President and his Secretary of Defense, as well as the PanAm Alliance to direct our damage to the places that need it most. The goal is to put exactly enough damage where it needs to go, so that the eUSA and her allies can defend their territory, and prevent unwanted aggression from their adversaries. The offensive campaign every so often wouldn’t be unwelcome...

The Ultramarines will be run a little differently than most other military units. We’re not going to have a single Commanding Officer. We will have a Command Team comprised of the founders of this militia. This group might expand in the future, as needed. The Ultramarines will be led by:

Avruch
Maruishima
Henry Arundel/Pfeiffer

The three of us are equal in rank and position, and will have separate, yet overlapping roles. Send any of us, or all of us, a message if you have questions about The Ultramarines.

We will not have your normal command structure. We’re not going to shout OPSEC if you ask us a question. We won’t tell you what to think, what you can and cannot say, and we won’t limit how you experience eRepublik as a game. There will not be a lot of rules. We’re here to have fun, not to play soldier.

We do not believe in wasting damage. Therefore, we will not do 100% disbursal of food every day. The amount we will give will be fluid, based on need, but every member is entitled to 50% of what they make every day, no matter what. That way, if the USA and PanAm have a quiet day, we won’t throw away food and damage on pointless battles, but every Ultramarine can still fight.

You will fight every day you choose to as a Ultramarine, guaranteed.

Read a quick outline of what we’re planning, and if you think you have what it takes, sign up here. We are not using a defined strength cutoff but, activity is required. We want an active and mobile fighting force so IRC and forum activity are mandatory. We will be using a portion of the eUSA forums. We are one community, and plan on staying that way.

Rangers lead the way!

Ranger lesson two: Don't be a dick while laying down huge massive fatal damage on demand.

There is no Ranger lesson one. If you needed that kind of coddling, you wouldn't be here.

Just to let you know, there is an official Rangers Battalion belonging to the eU.S. Army already, which is fully active and has been so for well over a year.

@Avruch The Rangers never died.

Army has had Rangers for ages. When the Army split, the Army Group East (later Cavalry) and the Army Group West (now just Army) both got Ranger Battalions.

Cavalry Rangers eventually deactivated, but our Rangers didn't, and now that we're joining together again we both share Rangers.

See the recent eU.S. wiki article on the Army, which shows our structure: http://wiki.eusaforums.com/United_States_Army

One of many Rangers articles at our newspaper, the Army Times, this one from over a year ago: http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/army-rangers-lead-the-way--973861/1/20

Since the Rangers are a long-standing part of the Army and will continue to be so, you might want to pick a unique name for your new militia.

"now that we're joining together again we both share Rangers."
It's not sharing if the Cavalry isn't contributing anyone/anything to the Army Rangers, is it?

Army Rangers founder Knojerakk must be flippin' in his grave.
I credit you with surprising me, that you have found yet another depth of disrespect.
what's next, maybe another bit of tricky legislation to get government funding? or will you arrange that in some sekrit back room deal?

Henry Pfeiffer Arundel
Henry Pfeiffer Arundel Day 1,192, 20:07

Porter, if you come back, you're always welcome. I was planning on personally recruiting you, but you went and quit first.

Love you bro, never log in again...but if you do, we're here.

Jon Vontalmo
Jon Vontalmo Day 1,192, 20:09

Knojerakk probably doesn't give a shit Custer, it's a fucking online game and I'm sure he quit for a reason. Stop acting like anything we do here actually matters.

Avruch
Avruch Day 1,192, 20:11

We're not the Army Rangers. You guys are cool and you are what you are. We're a militia and an independent unit, and I don't think anyone will confuse the two groups. As a member and officer in both AGE and Cav Rangers, I'm perfectly happy to see you guys continue that tradition.

@Avruch
I know you're not the "Army" Rangers, but Rangers has been in the Army/AGW/AGE/Cav for a very long time, and starting up an independent group also called Rangers while our Rangers continue to exist can only cause confusion.

Just like I would be against creating the Mobile Infantry Seal Team Six, I respectfully ask that you would pick another name for your militia. Surely there are tons of awesome elite unit names not in use? Green Berets, perhaps? They even have an awesome song.

Kyler you can change your units name to green berets?

I think this will turn out to be a militia full of elitist schweinhunds and their toady Kobold's

@Marcus: We only accept elitist schweinhunds, so you're right about that.

Wow so you go from stealing another branches name to ripping off Warhammer... bunch of class acts you are, having to steal two names in less than 24 hours.

Marcus Pete
Marcus Pete Day 1,192, 22:16

So first you steal the name of an existing unit, now you steal from Warhammer 40k... Real classy there. Speaks loads to your charatures.

like I said via sms... FU for tempting me to coming back... I will think on this.

Marcus is right.

That's almost as trivializing as stealing the name of a combat unit that puts its lives on the line in reality to make yourself feel cool in a browser game.

Samuel Seabury
Samuel Seabury Day 1,193, 03:26

I think "elitist schweinhunds" is a nice and appropriate name for any militia that Arundel sponsors. Make it so.

Marcus is retarded, and by extension, Nicholas Ryan. Roleplay is practically all this game is, what's wrong with acting like Ultramarines? They're p awesome.

Good luck.
