They year is 1916.

After the failed first assault by Commonwealth forces, the Battle of the Somme has begun.

You are Corporal Thomas Hunt of the First Newfoundland Regiment. With the sheer amount of dead amongst your regiment from the first assault, you ought to have been promoted. Current circumstances however, have halted such an outcome. Never the less, Canadian Corporals already had duties comparable to higher ranked officers in other militaries. What was 10 men more under your command?

"Is there a Corporal Thomas Hunt present!?!" a young man shouts to the soldiers surrounding you.

You take a drink from your canteen and raise you hand.

"Right here, my good man!"

The messenger runs over to you. He is visibly out of breath.

"Here, sir, read this!" he hands you a piece of paper and runs off.

TO CORPORAL THOMAS HUNT:

THE HOUR OF ASSAULT HAS BEEN MOVED BACK TO 0700 HOURS PREPARE AS NECESSARY.

You crumple the paper and toss it into a nearby puddle. You take out your pocketwatch and check the time.

"Alright, men! The hour of the assault has changed! With accordance to the current time, you have 30 minutes to prepare!"

You are met with grumbling but the men begin to move about all the same.

How do you wish to proceed?

Guess we're heavy but I'm unwilling to give up the grenade. Throwing it away will at least unburden us. Spade is a redundancy and a way to build a defense if we get stuck in no-mans land.

With your gear prepared, you take up position by a slope with your other men. Someone cracked a joke and some of the men were snickering.

The conversations stop. You check your pocketwatch. 13 minutes.

The time counts down. The firing of artillery is off in the distance. The shelling has begun, albeit much later than they would normally start.

The shelling gradually ceases. You face the German line. The pocket watch reaches zero. All along the line the whistles blow. You yourself shout out.

"Forward!"

The men barrel over the top. With you in the lead. Some of the men try to follow you, others make their way on their own.

Between you and the German line a series of craters dot the landscape. Serving as a halfway point, there is a dead tree which is a straight run from your position. The Germans have begun a counter barrage. Shells hit close but the Germans have not yet recovered enough to begin firing at the advancing troops. How do you proceed?

>Attempt to move from crater to crater (Time units: 4)
>Make for the tree, you'll have some fair cover there (+15 penalty Time units: 2)
>Go straight for the German line (+40 penalty but will reward if successful Time unit: 1)

Time units is the amount of rolls you have to make. Each additional time unit will add a +5 penalty.

Roll 1d100 whichever choice you make.

That tree is a little too... vertical for me. And charging straight into the jaws of death, well we're too young and handsome to die without being maimed a bit first.

FINALLY

The bullet barely grazes your arm.

You and your last two men make it into the last shellhole. Some British men join you. You are within grenade throwing distance. However, the enemy is too should you fail.

One of your men, Pvt. Tremblay open a satchel and retrieves several tin-can grenades and a box of matches. He looks at you and cackles to himself.

What do you do?

Newfoundland was a separate Dominion at the time, and at the Somme the Newfounland Regiment was under the control of the British 29th Division rather than the Canadian Corps.

>>44979676
You throw your grenade with great strength fairly certain that your grenade made it into the enemy trench.

Pvt. Tremblay flings his grenades out of the hole towards the enemy line with open abandon.

You hear explosions and screams. So you know at least your grenade did the trick.

What do you do now?
>charge the line (we should capitalize on their disarray!)
>wait to charge the line (we created an opening, let's follow through after other blokes have gone)
>>
>>44979754
>wait to charge

We''ve got the spade, perhaps we could dig down a little and provide cover fire?
>>
>>44979743
Which is why there will be predominately British troops supporting the quest mc (as we can see in the brits that jumped into his shellhole). To my knowledge (which may in fact be incorrect) the Newfoundland Regiment still operated in a similar capacity to the Canadian regulars. (In this case, a Corporal having authority comparable to a sergeant unlike the British military).

If that's wrong, I apologize.

You clamber out of the Trench with your men following behind you.

Tremblay goes down with a gutshot. The other Canadian now with a large hole in his forehead follows suit and lands on top of him. You jump into the trench out for blood. The British men engaging the Germans in your general vicinity are dead. The Germans react to your presence and fire at you.

They gaze at you horrified that they've had such little effect? Five Germans face you.

The German artillery barrage is so inaccurate, it's almost pathetic. Scratch that. It IS pathetic.

Hell it might have actually made it harder for the Germans to attack the Trench. Just who were these Germans employing?

You scramble out of your hiding spot as the barrage begins to die down. Behind you, you hear the groans of a man coming from the field. Taking a look you see a deathly pale Tremblay still with the other Canadian on him crawling towards the trench.

Well, this decides from a list what I was going to put in there.

You crack open the box and break out a strange looking rifle with a box magazine.

Reading the writing on the receiver reveals:

"Mondragon 1908"

You know jack shit about this gun and the way it works. The box's labels and the papers in the box are all in that gibberish the Germans speak.

Roll1d100 to figure out how it works.

You spend some time looking over the rifle.

Confident that you know this weapon like the back of your hand, you slap a magazine from the box into it and chamber the round.

Now the real question is, do you take it?
From what you understand, it will probably be unreliable in the worst conditions. Fortunately right now, conditions are more than acceptable.

You fire ten rounds in quick succession at some grouped up Germans.

6 of your shots hit.

I'll roll for the damage.
>>
Rolled 13, 8, 7, 14, 11 = 53 (5d14)

Whoops missed a few.
>>
Rolled 56 + 10 (1d100 + 10)

>>44982222
Three Germans fall dead. The others are wounded badly.

Without much cover, the Germans were forced to cover the distance quickly. Most of the surviving first wave has reached the halfway point.

What do you do?
>reload and keep firing (5d100)
>fall back

A few Germans take a couple potshots at you. I'll roll 1d100+10.
>>
>>44982217
are half of them dead?
>>
Rolled 30, 63, 14, 74, 92 = 273 (5d100)

>>reload and keep firing (5d100)
>>
>>44982262
From that Squad? Heck the entire squad is either dead or incapacitated.

>>44982261

Two more squads from the first wave are approaching your section of the Trench. Some of the wounded take pot shots at your position but don't score any hits.
>>
Rolled 11, 11, 3, 14, 12, 9 = 60 (6d14)

>>44982284
I'll just go ahead and double that.

You fire at the second group of Germans. Once more, six of your shots hit.
>>
Rolled 7, 34, 81, 72, 95 = 289 (5d100)

>>44982261
>>reload and keep firing (5d100)
keep fucking firing and get someone to dig behind you and put the mud into walls on either side of you to give you some side cover
>>
Rolled 53 (1d100)

>>44982322
Four Germans fall dead. You're really starting to like this thing.

The second wave has launched early. The first wave is at the second half of no man's land.

You have one loaded magazine left.
What do you do?
>keep firing
>fall back
>see if you can get someone to reload your magazines for you
>write in?

Also, I'm rolling for the fate of that guy you grazed with the '3' hit.
>>
>>44982365
>>see if you can get someone to reload your magazines for you
and dig to make walls on the sides of us
>>
>>44982365
>pick up the nearest en-field and fire a mad minute untill empty then fire our auto rifle when the huns get closer.
>>
>>44982365
fun fact the english had trench flame trowers that sprayed naplam onto oncoming germans they wheren't handholdable they had t dig special trenches for them
>>
>>44982365
Get one of our lads to scrounge some ammo for this thing, if possible. If not to retrieve the Enfield.
>>
Rolled 88 (1d100)

>>44982427
Whoops. Forgot to roll.
>>
Rolled 82, 75, 38, 22, 50, 37, 85, 22 = 411 (8d100)

>>44982389
>>44982401
I can work with this.

You turn to your right and ask the nearest soldier to help you load the Mondragon magazines. Witnessing how effective you are he obliges. You sling your Mondragon and take the Enfield off his hand, giving him the ammo box and the two spent magazines in return.

At the same time, you ask for some walls to be dug up to cover your sides in the trench. One of the younger looking soldiers runs off to grab some extra sandbags and dump them on your sides.

I'll roll for four things.
1. 1d100 for loading the magazines
2. 5d100 for shooting the Enfield
3. 1d100 for sandbags being placed
4. 1d100 for fate of grazed German

>>44982409
I'll keep this in mind for the future when applicable.

ww1 had static flame turrets... cool!
>>
Rolled 10, 10 = 20 (2d15)

>>44982470
In summary,

The man quickly and efficiently reloads the magazines. He shuts the ammo box and is ready to hand the stuff over to you.

Two of your Enfield shots hit. I'll roll for damage.

The young soldiers builds up some sandbag cover almost expertly. Your flanks will surely be covered.

The grazed German while making it far gets cut down by rifle fire.

The final German squad is within assault distance. What do you do?
>trade the Enfield back to the soldier for the ammunition
>try to shoot them with the mondragon before they can get into the trench
>write in?
>>
>>44982525
How many soldiers are with us exactly? If there's enough we can take them in CC.
>>
>>44982525
Shoot they asses
>>
>>44982558
Given the circumstances, I'd say 6 men in your sector with 9 men heading into your trench.
>>
>>44982525
>try to shoot them with the mondragon before they can get into the trench
Time to hit the giggle switch.
>>
>>44982580
...Nah. Not taking those chances.

Pop frags and fire at will, by Jove!
>>
Rolled 62, 58, 49, 45, 38, 67, 45, 56, 56, 17, 10 = 503 (11d100)

You drop the Enfield and fire the last ten rounds of the Mondragon into the approaching Germans.

One of the Germans tries to throw an M24 Handgrenade into the trench.

I'll roll for chances to hit.
>>
Rolled 10, 3, 9, 4, 14 + 1 = 41 (5d14 + 1)

>>44982634
Five hits rolling for damage, in addition, the German grenadier drops his grenade prematurely, rolling for effectiveness.
>>
Rolled 79 (1d100)

>>44982659
Two kills, one incapacitate, two wounds.

Fudged the roll so rerolling for grenade.
>>
Rolled 4 (1d5)

>>44982665
They were huddled up, rolling for kills.
>>
Rolled 20, 47 = 67 (2d100)

>>44982683
I'll subtract one because I fudged that up as well.

Two men make it into the Trench. One attempts a shot at you and the other tries to bayonet the man with your ammo.

Rolling.
>>
>>44982694
The shot misses. The man with the ammunition deflects the bayonet and gets a shallow puncture wound in his arm.

You have the initiative and you're out of ammunition, what do you do?
>attack with the spade
>draw your colt
>see how well your new rifle functions as a clubbing tool
>write in?
>>
>>44982743
>draw your colt
>>
>>44982743
>draw your colt
I dont want no dirty Kraut blood on my new weapon. Also, shoot the guy who shot at us if you can, I dont want him getting a second shot at this range.
>>
>>44982743
Attack with the spade.
>>
Rolled 21, 43, 23 = 87 (3d100)

>>44982763
>>44982768
You draw your colt and get a bead on the guy that shot at you.

You fire a three round burst.

Rollin!
>>
Rolled 2 (1d10)

>>44982800
I'll give that a pass because you're using a side arm in close quarters.

One shot connects, rolling for damage.
>>
Rolled 98, 19, 11, 90 = 218 (4d100)

>>44982815
Here comes the end, watch, kek.

You shoot the German but don't hit anything vital.

The soldiers surrounding you take shots at the guy with the gun. At the same time the guy with your ammo draws his bayonet and attempts to stab the German soldier fighting him.
>>
You don't need to break combat down into these man steps with so many rolls for every action.
>>
Rolled 4 + 5 (1d15 + 5)

>>44982845
The young British soldier that built up your sandbag defense fires his Enfield at the German rifleman. It hits in a critical area. Rolling for damage.

The man with your ammo thrusts out with his bayonet and slips it under the German's ribs, hiting a vital organ. Somebody do me a favor and roll 1d10+3 for the damage.
>>
Rolled 8 + 3 (1d10 + 3)

>>44982893
Have at 'em!
>>
>>44982887
Agreed.
Alternative, you could do those rolls off-screen.

Other than that, I like the quest. Good job.
>>
>>44982887
Yeah, it's just taking up time. I know better for next thread. Maybe I'll just abandon the damage system all together because there was some utter rubbish early on.

The last surviving German clutches his chest as blood flows from his wound. Without missing a beat, the man with the ammo sheathes his bayonet and retrieves his rifle. He hands you your ammunition which you gladly accept.

With a new magazine loaded, you peer over the trench to the field. What surprises you is the lack of second wave forces in your sector. It is likely though, that the second wave hit other sectors more effectively.

It seems you've beaten them back, at least here.

The gunfire starts to quiet down but there is still some action going on.

What do you do first?
>go searching for some action
>take up defensive positions in case the enemy pours in from other sectors
>scavenge the bodies
>try to find your fellow canadians and maybe Tremblay while you're at it
>write in?
>>
>>44983007
Scavenge the bodies for ammo, and take up defensive positions. We can rest when we're dead.
>>
Rolled 69 (1d100)

>>44983057
You scavenge the dead Germans for ammunition. Unfortunately, you find none that the Mondragon uses.

You and the other soldiers take up defensive positions guarding both entrances to this sector.

Doing a luck roll. I might as well see this system through to the end.
>>
>>44983007
>scavenge the bodies & post sentries
>>
>>44983083
Is the Mondragon empty? If so we should switch back to the Enfield
>>
>>44983083
You wait and wait, but no Germans ever enter the sector. A survivor from the first wave manages to crawl up to the trench with a hand grenade but is shot down by a sentry.

The gunfire dies out and whistles are blown, the all clear signal is sounded.

You can finally relax. The battle is over, you've made it through another one.

What do you do?
>Try to find your fellow canadians
>Check in on Tremblay at the aid dugout
>Locate your commanders and ask what the heck you're going to do without a regiment
>rest for the night, you've done enough
>write in?
>>
>>44983132
Check sentry posts have suitable amounts of ammunition and are going to be regularly rotated. Then check on write an action report (leaving out you shot yourself accidentally)

The boss can wait until the section is fully dugin and you have something more substitutional than word of mouth to give him.

Im new to thread so please dont hate me if i fuck up any rolls
>>
>>44983206
You check on the sentries in your sector and the ones adjacent to it to ensure that they're properly equipped and that rotations are in place.

You write an action report in your unit's war journal. It will likely be the last entry.

You can perform one more action before you settle in for the night.

What do you do?
>Try to find your fellow canadians
>Check in on Tremblay at the aid dugout
>Locate your commanders and ask what the heck you're going to do without a regiment
>rest for the night, you've done enough
>write in?
>>
>>44983132
>>44983206
Make sure the sentries are all set up and know when to rotate.

Scavenge for ammo, pistols, grenades, and other valuables.

Go back and retrieve our rifle we hid away.
>>
>>44983257
Ah dam, too slow.
>Get our lee-enfield rifle back from its hiding place.
OR
>Locate your commanders and ask what the heck you're going to do without a regiment
we can probably meet some canucks on the way.
>>
>>44983132
Locate the commanders. What's our next objective?
>>
>>44983284
second to the locating commander
>>
>>44983284
>>44983290
>>44983294
You head off to the temporary command dugout.

After a brief inspection by a sentry, you're allowed into the area.

The British sure moved in quickly. All the German materials have been destroyed or otherwise displaced. In the corner you see Officers and translators pouring over German documents and maps in order to gather intelligence.

You approach regimental commander Bennett who seems rather preoccupied with some letters. He looks up from his desk.

"Can I help you?"

"Corporal Thomas Hunt of the New Foundland First Regiment, requesting new orders, sir!"

"Right, from the lists there's only 20 of you left. We're transferring your regiment to the rear line to await reinforcement in 3 days. You should get some rest until then, Corporal, and I believe some congratulations are in order. Word has reached us of quite some heroic shooting you performed in your sector with that rifle of yours. You might even receive a medal. Go ahead and keep that, it certainly couldn't hurt. We're experimenting with our own automatic rifles so we have no need for such a thing."

"Now, will that be all Corporal Hunt?"

"Yes, sir."

"Dismissed."

You find a place to settle in for the night nearby where you can easily retrieve your Enfield. As the exhaustion of the day sets in, you fall asleep.

END THREAD

Thoughts? I'm always looking to improve. I realize this is kind of an abrupt end but I am rather tired. So you all have a good night!
>>
>>44983419
Its a good read anon. I cant see anything wrong
>>
>>44983419
Good night trembly
goodnight raifu
goodnight rats
goodnight huns
goodnight trenchfoot
goooood night.
>>
>>44983419
Its still fun, different setting from the alternate history one, so some of the spooky and interest stuff is gone but its still fun enough. combat and rolling could use some work but you've already addressed that.

Would be nice if you could "give some flesh" to the NPCs and world around us feels a little lonely except for Trembaly. Mostly situational or descriptive detail would be enough.

When'll the next one be?
