Feldjäger

The Feldjäger are the Military Police of the Prussian Empire’s army, and as such, their job is to prosecute those who fall foul of military law, usually through summary execution. Their duties also include security, and again, this is usually enforced through summary execution. In fact, everything they do is enforced through summary execution.

It is little wonder they are not particularly liked within the army of the Prussian Empire.

Waldhuter

The Prussian Empire’s army fields several kinds of units, depending on tactical and strategic purposes. One such unit is the Waldhuter, or Rangers.

Waldhuter are essentially a light infantry unit comprising of lightly armed and fast moving troops to gain objectives in the early stages of any campaign. Sometimes Scouts are added to the unit for deep insertion roles.

Waldhuter Unteroffizier

Each Waldhuter squad should have one Unteroffizier with which to lead it. Even though they tend to operate in loose formation, they do, on occasions, combine themselves into tight rank-and-file squads. The Unteroffizier’s Leadership skill comes into play when using tight squad formations.

Waldhuter Soldat

The Waldhunter Soldat is your standard squad member, and is lightly armed. They tend to get killed in droves so there is no point spending too much on weaponry and equipment.

Waldhuter Panzeerfaust

The Panzerfaust is a specialist in many Prussian Empire regiments, and as such, is well represented within the Waldhuter. He (or she) is armed with a Panzerfaust anti-tank missile launcher and five rockets.

Squadron Formation

One in five Waldhuter are trained up as Panzerfaust, and this is represented throughout all squadrons, no matter what their size. So a squad of five Waldhuter will have one Panzerfaust, a squad of ten will have two Panzerfaust, and so on. The only exception to this is a three-man deep insertion unit, made up of Waldhuter Scouts. This kind of unit usually comprises of two Panzerfaust and an Unteroffizier. All three members of a Waldhuter Scout squad will be armed with MP40’s as well as their usual armament.


Anne Casey’s Squad

Anne Casey

Anne Casey has been with the Guild for a number of years. When Grunge Smith decided to split the guild up into squadrons for ease of management, it was only natural that she would head up the first squadron.

As a veteran, she has been in a number of campaigns with ASAG – the R2013 expedition to Aegyptus and the raiding of various trap-laden tombs in the deserts, the R2012 expedition to Amazonia and the little scrap with the Cyclops, and numerous others, too many to mention, or make up off the top of one’s head.

Rumours about Anne’s orientation are never-ending, and she has been romantically linked to Viktoria before she left with Von Braun to join the Prussian Empire’s Ekk Korps under General Gunter Grass. She has also been linked in the past to Helena from Clint’s squad and Natalia from Evie’s squad. When not on duty with ASAG she is often found in the Pink Dragon, an establishment of a dubious nature, and she is well known to the scene there.

Anne’s weapon of choice is a lever-operated Winchester rifle, with a revolver and combat knife as back up.

Caesar

Don’t let Caesar’s cute Blighty accent fool you. He’s a cold blooded killer.

Martin

Martin blows everything up, eventually, whether by accident or on purpose…

Matthew

Matthew only has a small one. His gun, on the other hand, is massive. Yes, he is compensating…

Mark

Mark shoots things fairly accurately. Therefore, he will always have a job…


Evie’s Squad (RMRS)

Evie

Evie is unkempt, unshaven, and a bit of a speed freak. He is also the best thing you have seen on two wheels. Evie is often tanked up on coffee, and is terrible at getting up in the mornings.

Evie now heads up the first Rapid Motorised Reaction Squad.

Natalia

Natalia recently got hired by the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild on the recommendation of Evie. His colleagues are unsure whether it was because of her coffee, or because of her ability with explosives. Natalia, for her part, keeps quiet about this. She has her eye on Evie – now if only he would shower a bit more often…

Yvonne

Yvonne is not one to be underestimated at all – smart, sassy, and very very tough. She has been on the saddle of bikes, trikes and quads since she was knee-high to a halfling, and there isn’t a Steel Horse that she cannot handle.

Smith Senior

Smith Senior is Grunge Smith’s father, a curmudgeonly old explorer who still has plenty of life left within him.

Ian

Ian is a hot-headed young punk who seems to think that his trike is a mobile weapons platform. After strapping an M1919 to the back few would now argue with his insistence that it is.


The SteamPunk Twins

Bob and Rob hail from one of the many islands off the south coast of Nord, and were born into a rich family with little genetic variance – hence why both their names are diminutives of “Robert” – their mother was not too smart on the naming front. In fact, their mother was not particularly smart at all, but that is another matter entirely. Twins were not unusual in their family line. What is unusual is the fact that these twins were born with far higher than average intelligence when most twins born into the family are blathering idiots.

The SteamPunk Twins, as they later became known as, soon showed a natural aptitude for the sciences, both conventional and esoteric. They also soon became interested in dealing with all the creatures that preyed upon the villages and livestock surrounding their ancestral home, from vampires to werewolves, zombies to the various creations of mad scientists. This soon put them in conflict with the rest of their extended family, especially after that incident with Uncle Wolfie and that field full of sheep.

By the time they reached their early twenties, they found their position within the ancestral home untenable, and they packed up their many things into trunks and decided to pursue a life of adventure – one that did not include killing family members several times who just so happened to be vampires. Within a few short years they found themselves under the employ of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild, and have been there ever since.


The Red Brigade

The Red Brigade is made up of Grunge Smith, Mike, The Kid, Kate, Alan and Edwardo. Between them they have three dark red vehicles, and are the motorised core of ASAG.

Grunge Smith

Grunge is the leader-they-don’t-have of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild. He is a heroic character, which means that despite his brains he still gets into trouble, and his love life is both varied and troublesome.

When he isn’t raiding tombs and avoiding countless assaults by egotistical Prussians, Grunge is often found doing everything he can to avoid snakes. He hates snakes (they are not that keen on him, either, but no one asks the bloody snakes what they think…).

Mike

Mike is an experienced driver and adventurer, and is employed as Grunge Smith’s personal driver within the Red Brigade. He has been in the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild for some years now.

Grunge Smith’s Sports Car

Grunge Smith rides around in a shiny red sports car, which is driven by Mike.

The Kid

The Kid is the son of Grunge Smith and Miriam, and has always grown up within the Anarcho-Syndicalist Adventurers Guild. It was only natural that eventually he’d follow in his parent’s footsteps and become an adventurer. Just as his dad has a thing for whips, so has he a thing for knives and other bladed weapons. He is currently “dating” Kate, the gunner on his truck, although “dating” is a rather polite way to put things…

Kate

Kate joined ASAG not too long ago, but already, she has shown herself to be an accomplished gunner and all-round team player. As The Kid’s partner, she has a little more status than would be usual for a newer member of the Guild.

Alan

Alan drives the truck for The Kid and Kate.

The Truck

Grunge’s son, The Kid, drives around in a big 4×4 truck with his girlfriend, Kate. Their driver is Alan.

Edwardo

Edwardo (the Eagle) is an old boy in love with an old plane. He provides nominal air support where possible.

The Bird

The Bird is an old biplane Edwardo lovingly maintains for no discernible reason other than because he is in love with the old bird – it certainly does not provide much air cover when needed.
