Brotherhood of the Rail - Rank and File

Our current RPG campaign is using Privateer Press's Iron Kingdoms rule-set. In it our little group of 'heroes' are the senior officers of a rather unusual Mercenary Company.

Information on our own player characters can be found here. The various NPC's that make up our rank and file are detailed below. As well as being a potential catalyst for future missions they also allow people to jump into the campaign with an existing character whose sudden appearance we don't need to explain...

The NPC's use the same format as the Iron Kingdoms uses for encounter characters and for our purposes they have a single career and one bonus Stat point in an appropriate area to keep it simple when the company engages in a full scale battle.

The Brotherhood of the Rail
Originally formed at the last minute as a loose group of guards for the Continental Rail Companies new 'special' delivery service after an unfortunate disagreement caused the original group of mercenaries to abandon the contract. After saving the train from a potentially embarrassing disaster on it's first run this random association of individuals were formed into the semblance of a mercenary company under the captaincy of a Llaelese former military officer using a hastily re-written version of the charter intended for the original guards.

Given their usual employment being the guarding of the Continental Rail Companies 'Special' transport train Mercenary Captain Sebastian LaCroix favours employees with ranged skills and most of the Brotherhood are primarily armed with long range rifles when on their rooftop posts and rapid-fire pistols and close combat weapons that can easily be used in enclosed spaces when working internally. Some of these biases are still prevalent despite the Brotherhood now operating as a more traditional company with Sebastian having a definite preference for ranged killers.

The Brotherhood also employs a large complement of Ogrun and Trollkin Men at Arms to deal with any close-up or counter-assault situations, a scout force, artillery teams, it's own engineering team and a few other specialist teams.

With a growing reputation for success in areas not normally associated with traditional mercenary companies and having fought against forces many times their size and prevailed the Brotherhood is rapidly becoming the 'go-to' organisation for those with 'specialist' requirements or needing results without wanting to now how they are achieved...

The Brotherhood currently consists of two hundred and eighteen members without taking labourers into account and has no restrictions upon race or (despite their name) sex consisting currently of one hundred and seven human members, fifty nine Trollkin, forty Ogrun, seven Pygmy Trolls, two Gobbers, two dwarfs and a single elf with well over a third of the force being female.

New recruits are commonplace but the Brotherhood can now afford to be choosy and only the best or most cunning now gain full membership.

Rank and File
Human Soldiers
Armed with a variety of rifles and some close combat weaponry the initial bulk of the companies fighting strength is made up of former soldiers from a variety of countries and backgrounds. Usually found manning a firing point in one of the carriages or when the vehicle is stationary on one of the roof mounted barricade sections. Now that the Brotherhood also have their own fortress and are receiving new contracts of work their duties are expanding accordingly. Some of the companies soldiers have other skills and abilities but as they are recruited for general duties these often go unnoticed until they're really needed...

Human Riflemen
Though the majority of the companies rank and file are armed with rifles there are a few who have elevated it's use to an art-form. These individuals mark out high value targets such as commanders and other officers and leaders and remove them with precision long range shots.

Human Pistoleers
Should the enemy manage to make it's way through the rifleman's covering fire the brotherhood employs a smaller number of pistoleers. These individuals are able to lay down an impressive number of short range shots and primarily defend doorways and interior sections that may be prone to attack. They are also on occasion used for bodyguard duties where a pistol is far more useful than a rifle and are currently Captain LaCroix's preferred personal guard.

Men-At-Arms
Sometimes precision is less important than area of effect and in these situations a cannon is always a useful thing to have to hand and when that cannon is literally 'to hand' then it becomes more useful still. Though they'll never win any awards for accuracy sometimes that's not as necessary as you might think and if that fails then they and their fellow Ogrun 'Bosh' Skullsplitter are more than happy to take the fight to the heart of the enemy. Kuluk is especially keen to prove himself after his rescue from the Dragon's Tongue river Thamarite base and subsequent recruitment to the Brotherhood. The Ogrun compliment has recently been supplemented by a dozen Trollkin from a Kriel local to the Brotherhoods fortress and these newest recruits have proved their worth in battles against the Skorne, Steelheads and other foes though it is still usually the Ogrun who undertake the most dangerous assignments.

Artillerists
In an effort to increase the level of protection of their special train service the Transcontinental Rail company has recruited a small complement of artillerists and an experienced commander to organise them. They were originally equipped with a trio of Deck Guns between them though their commander had expressed some doubt about whether this would give them adequate coverage. They have now supplemented these weapons with a number of Chain Guns acquired by the Brotherhood during a recent mission and a pair of Light Cannon looted from the Skornes human allies during the defence of their Bloodstone pass fortress and have increased their membership significantly as well. Several Trollkin recruited by the Brotherhood during the Skorne incursion proved to be valuable additions to the Artillery teams and are now stationed with them permanently where their strength and endurance have become invaluable.

Cavalry
After 'acquiring' a number of war horses in the Brotherhoods usual manner it was decided that a small mounted compliment would be a useful addition to their military forces and Danika has trained them to be a useful and highly mobile force. The heavier elements of the Brotherhoods mounted elements are instead made up of Trollkin Bison riders recruited along with the men at arms, labourers and scouts from the local Trollkin Kriel. Given the cost of quality mounts and effective heavier barding it is unlikely that this force will be expanded significantly unless it has proven itself to be a profitable venture and in this area the Brotherhood has major competition from the nearby Steelheads.

Scout Force
Amongst the many Trollkin drawn to the Brotherhood after the mercenaries elimination of their rivals and subsequent impressing of their leader were many who already had significant experience as scouts and rangers. These Trollkin and Pyg's proved to be especially useful tracing the path of the invading Skorne force and have helped give advanced warning of a number of threats to the fortress.

Specialists
Ranging from explorers who act as scouts on the rare occasion they're needed, engineers who maintain equipment such as their weapons, 'jack and (more often than they like) the train they're riding upon, expert traders or their Ogrun labourers and shock-troops the Brotherhood employs a number of specialist personnel..though some are 'special' in more ways than one...

Engineering
Being based on what can effectively be seen as a moving fort has several advantages...as long as it works that is. After the narrowly avoided disaster of their first mission it was decided that the organisation of those company members with technical knowledge was a high priority. The civilian engineering team is lead by Bragg Halvard with the military arm being under the control of Thorsten Dovur but should they be performing some tasks for Captain LaCroix then this responsibility is taken on by Hayli Rutherford ably assisted by the Gobber 'Bodge'.

Ogrun Labor Korune
Between stations Krell is nominally part of the engineering team though it's at their regular station stops that her skills really come to the fore. It is her job to ensure that the station workers are organised, cargo items are put where they're meant to go and that all necessary equipment re-stocks are adequate in quantity and correctly stored. She has also been instrumental in the swift construction of the companies new fortress where her skills proved to be exemplary. Few workers would wish to disappoint her...none have ever done so twice. The majority of the permanent labourers employed by the Brotherhood are based at their fortress and consist mainly of local Trollkin. These are currently gainfully employed expanding the Brotherhoods home and base as well as assisting with several other projects such as rebuilding the dockyard to accommodate the new trade negotiated by Rafaldo.

Human Bounty Hunter/Investigator
Bosh being now free from bodyguard and Paymaster duties has formed a small unit of operatives whose purpose is the retrieval of high value bounties and this has proven to be a far more profitable venture then was ever expected. Though Bosh is a skilled tracker in his own right and has a talent for intimidation and interrogation it was decided to fill out the rest of this team with individuals whose expertises were spread across a wider variety of investigative techniques including the forensic sciences. However when the targets value is the same dead or alive Bosh has taught them that 'dead' is more often than not preferable...

Auxilliaries
Not all employees of the Brotherhood fit into neatly defined roles and not every task is military in nature. Captain LaCroix's experiences as a resistance fighter have taught him to take advantage of all resources as you never know when some-thing or some-one might come in useful...

Human 'Diplomat'
Working as a diplomat for Transcontinental Rail is an interesting career path to say the least. Given their involvement in business ventures across multiple borders and the volatile nature of relationships between the various kingdoms of Immoren a diplomat for Transcontinental is forced to develop a whole host of less than reputable skills. Thus Amelie has a set of abilities that no Aristocrat should really possess...or would admit to possessing at least. She is also currently running the Llaelese resistance after their recent purge of traitorous elements and is no longer an active Brotherhood member.

Human Explorer
Garfield initially took employment with the Continental Rail Companies new special train service as a convenient way to continue his explorations but has grown to enjoy the lifestyle considerably. The fact that he's more often than not miles away when any-one notices that their maps and rarities are missing is also an asset. His primary contribution to the brotherhood is his extensive knowledge of languages and cultures across most of Western Immoren and in some cases beyond and it's for this reason that LaCroix overlooks his other activities. His extensive recording of the Brotherhoods travels together with his near obsessive desire to acquire maps and local documents has meant that the fortress now possesses a formidable map room.

Dwarven Searforge Trader
A member of the legendary 'Searforge' Rhulic Clan 'Monty' is a highly skilled negotiator though much to her consternation is usually only called in just after one of the company officers has exasperated a situation already. Apparently charm only goes so far and Bosh threatening to pull peoples arms and legs off is a somewhat situational negotiation tactic as is Danika's preference for 'enhanced' interrogation fortunately Monty is usually able to salvage something from even the most botched of deals and has been helpful in ensuring that none of their suppliers attempt anything underhand. The only Brotherhood member who she has any real respect for is Rafaldo as he shares her skills in the area of creative negotiation tactics.

Human Medic
One of many prisoners rescued by the Brotherhood from the clutches of a Thamarite cult Rosaleen quickly demonstrated her skill as a medic by helping to tend the wounds of the survivors and was more than happy to take up employment with her rescuers. Since then she has proven to be a valuable asset to both the Brotherhood and the Transcontinental Rail Company despite her somewhat distant and aloof personality. Her skills were especially tested when treating the extensive and unusual injuries inflicted by the weapons of the Skorne during the Brotherhoods recent encounters. Bosh has also become somewhat protective of her due to the skill with which she has sewn up his many wounds and credits her personally with his survival on at least one occasion...possibly more...most notably after the recent assault on the Bandit camp in the mountains outside Ternon Crag.

'Jacks
Though only one of the Laborjacks utilised by the Brotherhood actually belongs to them (well, technically it belongs to Bragg Halvard) they have access to three in total due to the continental rail company issuing them a pair for loading and unloading of cargo. This loan was due to Captain LaCroix's objection to the fact that their first mission was significantly hindered when 'his' Ogrun were being utilised moving engine parts at the point that they were attacked by bandits rather than being ready to defend the train. The three laborjacks are of the reliable 'Forager' chassis type and are equipped with standard Steamjack Fists for cargo manipulation. They do however have access to a variety of tools that make excellent improvised weapons should it become necessary.

'Ruby'
Extensively re-built using parts salvaged from a partly destroyed Charger Light Warjack chassis acquired by the brotherhood 'Ol Faithful' is now far more formidable. A recent acquisition of a salvageable upgraded cortex and other useful second hand parts has further increased the combat potential of this 'jack though the reconditioned nature of the parts has made 'her' a bit...twitchy...

The Armoury
Over their various adventures the Brotherhood have acquired a number of weapons and items of equipment that they have used to create a reserve armoury should they need to replace lost equipment or to equip new recruits. These are in the majority basic weapons as the more exotic acquisitions are invariably taken by senior members of the Brotherhood of the Rail for their personal use.
