The Sword of the Righteous: Fiefdom/Brotherhood of Randis
« on: 13 January 2012, 11:08:07 »
 At least, the Knights of Randis and his followers have a place to call "home" on this forums. What about a roll call?  O0

There was a prior Randis thread, altho I think that was just a question thread. Glad to see an actual Randis/Brotherhood thread.

 I just finished reading the FM:3085 Periphery section, it is very interesting...

Apparently an international cooperation effort has began between the Brotherhood, Filvet, the Protectorade, and in a smaller scale, the Fronc, with the Brotherhood sending Brothers and mechs to those nations, and getting some Star Dagger ASFs and a new aereospace section in the Brotherhood monastery.

I recall other primitive mechs being built on Randis IV. I guess mechs aren't just for the cool kids anymore.

 Primitive firebee and Dervish. I still have to test them against some pirates with a friend.

 Nope, still 2 over-strengh battalions. Very minor variations since Field Report: Periphery. FM:3085 mentions a suggestion to create a third battalion, but Grand Knight Beckett opposed it.

I would like to hear more on non mech forces of Randis. I recall in 2nd periphery talk of ASFs.

They stated in FM 3085 that due to large numbers of imported ASF's they were adding Aerospace piloting to the curriculum.

That's good. It could hard to fight many pirate bands with out air support.

 Well, Beckett is an ex-CCC ex-CSJ warrior, and apparently he got a lot of ex-CSJ warriors acording to Master and Minions, enough to raise a battalion that is no accounted for in FR:P and FM:3085.  O0

I think a very interesting wrinkle for the Brotherhood would be clan mechs alongside primatives. Not a member of the brotherhood yet, but a fan and ally.

Didn't the Knights have a few clan omnis, brought with from their ex-jag warriors?

I think it is an interesting situation for Randis... conventional militia (tanks, PBI) do not fit in with the brotherhood style, so they likely have to keep at minimum a demi-company at home for protection... OTOH, with their emphasis on developing the world I wonder if they might start buying or building equipment for a traditional militia equipped by locals who want to serve the brotherhood but aren't really able to shoot for squire-knighthood.

Anyone else think Randis and a few others could join together to make a proto state. They seem to have lots going for them, endemic industry, trade, military defense, they seem to be an up and coming society. Add a few more colony planets, wipe out some of the more pernicious pirates, and I think they are well on the way to and actua periphery realm.

I don't think there is much around them.  A small proto state would be cool but how many inhabited world are near them to start one up?

 Well, related to that, you have the mistery of the Retrotech mechs. Master and MInions and FR:P tells us of a 3th Battalion almost created, but FM:85 shows the Brotherhod at almost the same levels of 3067. I can infere that either the other books were wrong/misinformed, or that the Retrotech mechs are going mainly for external market/militia.

Well there are lots of far-looker colonies that never grew up enough to be on the maps, and FedSuns - controlled mining worlds which might have a few houses for long-term miners and the like.

They could "interrogate" a captured Death's group pirate's ship captain for info on how to jump into the Badlands base-planet

There's a BattleCorps scenario named "Lost Souls" that has the Brotherhood of Randis deploying onto the former Outworlds Allliance world of Ddraig to defend the last inhabited settlements on the planets from a Death's Consorts raiding party. Evidently both the Consorts and the Brotherhood have been ranging a long way - Ddraig's one of the old Blommestein Province worlds, and there hasn't been a map showing significant worlds in that area in a long time, but it would seem that there are still planets with populations on them in that neck of the woods.

It's more interesting than optimal, and therefore better. O0 - Weirdo
