Recruitment Center / 47th Legion - For the Glory of the Marian Hegemony!
« Last post by Cavadus on August 14, 2017, 10:43:40 PM »

High Command

Our young Empire is a force at war, fighting adversaries who threaten our foothold on a new civilization and way of life. The most significant aspect of our current strategic reality is that the struggle with competing periphery and successor state forces in which we are now engaged will be a protracted one in which we will find ourselves often in conflict with both familiar and alien adversaries.

The Marian Hegemony Armed Forces's primary mission is to provide necessary forces and capabilities to the combatant commanders in support of the Universal War and Expansion Strategies. We have hundreds of Legionaries deployed or forward stationed today to support combat operations throughout our Empire to deter aggression while securing the gains we've already established. We are fighting today while simultaneously preparing for tomorrow.

To continue to accomplish our mission, we are aggressively restructuring the MHAF. We are transforming from a force designed for contingency operations in the pre-invasion era to a force designed for continuous operations in a time of discovery and exploration that presents challenges to our emerging Empire ranging from traditional to potentially catastrophic.

The MHAF is dependent upon the resources procured up until now by the Senate and People, coupled with expanding emergency supplemental appropriations by the Emperor, to support current expansion and combat operations. These resources will also enable the force to recover from the stress placed on equipment and Legionaries during combat and continually "reset" itself for future deployments. Moreover, these resources are required to continue to transform the MHAF into a larger, more powerful force built on self-sufficient legion-based modules. This force will be more flexible, more rapidly deployable, and better able to sustain the protracted military campaigns and conduct the joint expeditionary operations required by the current security environment.

We are sustaining our universal commitments while making tremendous progress in our transformation. We will need the continued support of the People and Senate to accomplish our mission today and tomorrow while providing for the well-being of our Legionaries, their families, and our civilian workforce who are serving the MHAF in this time of expansion and discovery.

For the Hegemony!

The 47th Legion is a military themed, North American based player association.

The 47th prides itself on professionalism and esprit de corps which are our core principles. We hold our Legionaries to a high standard and prohibit any and all types of exploiting and cheating.

Teamwork and collective effort are mantras the 47th Legion lives by. We explore in a century, move in a century, we fight in a century, and we all do what we can to contribute to the Legion.

[INDENT]When you join the 47th you cease being an individual; you are now part of the most highly trained combat unit in the galaxy.[/INDENT]

Remember, if you are looking for an active, organized, fun, and professional unit, then you've found it in the 47th Legion!

We strive to provide our Legionaries with a semi-realistic military simulation environment. This involves some light roleplaying elements but our rank structure, personal awards, training exercises, and camaraderie constitute the bulk of the atmosphere.

Additionally, the 47th recognizes the contributions our Legionaries make to the unit. Whether it's something as simple as creating some artwork, recruiting friends into the unit, or single-handedly wiping out a clan star we have a plethora of rewards to publicly honor our Legionaries with.

Our Legionaries proudly display their ribbons in a display case on their profiles. If you'd like to learn more about our awards system you can view them and their descriptions here.

  • Professionally built website and forum based on IPS Community Suite;
  • Image galleries, downloads, blogging, and social media support;
  • Unit supply section;
  • Discord VOIP service;
  • Unique rank structure and awards systems;
  • Weekly scheduled operations;
  • Personalized 47th Legion e-mail accounts;
  • Gaming newswire service; and
  • Real military leadership and experience.

  • Must be at Least 19 years of age (exceptions considered on case by case basis);

  • Willingness to casually roleplay; and
  • All alternate characters must be tagged with the unit.

Long, long ago Centurion Gaius Cavadus, founder and commanding officer of the 47th Legion, had founded another gaming organization dedicated to Mechwarrior 3: Pirate's Moon.  That unit was the Davion Heavy Guards and way back when Centurion Cavadus used the callsign "Mastrre."

The 47th Legion, however, was originally established in 2007 as an offshoot of a Star Wars Galaxies guild from the Chilastra server but the genesis of the Legion stretches back considerably further than that.

By the time of the NGE a lot of interest in SWG had been permanently lost. A deployment or two later I became highly interested in Tabula Rasa and chose to start my own player organization for the game with a few SWG guildmates which came to be known as the 47th A.F.S. Expeditionary Force, or 47th A.F.S.E.F..

Around the time of TR's closure Earthrise caught the 47th's interest. We waited for Earthrise for over three years and were finally able to step foot on Enterran soil at game launch.

Unfortunately Earthrise was plagued with launch issues, lacked basic and rudimentary features, had an extremely unoptimized client which ran very poorly, had a small community, and incredibly slow patch releases. In June of 2011 we decided to quit Earthrise.

Moving on from there we briefly dabbled in Star Wars: The Old Republic though in the end the game was simply the antithesis in design of everything we actually enjoy in an MMO.

A few months later we started following the development of the Trion Worlds and SyFy collaboration known as Defiance. We greatly enjoyed the game and show and quickly rose to being the most dominant guild on the PC platform. Unfortunately, Trion World's interest in future development of the title quickly waned and the game is all but abandon-ware at this point.

After exiting Defiance we've focused mainly on multiplayer sandboxes such as Empyrion: Galactic Survival, Space Engineers, Miscreated, DayZ, Ark: Survival Evolved, RUST, and various ArmA 3 mods over MMOs.

Now we find ourselves in Mechwarrior: Online!

The 47th is an excellent environment for current and past members of the armed forces. Many of our Legionaries are prior service (I personally served in the U.S. Army for seven years as a 19D Cavalry Scout: FIRST TEAM!) and enjoy being around other prior service Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines; we welcome and encourage you to join!

The 47th currently has Legionaries deployed in many titles. We are currently officially supporting Empyrion: Galactic Survival, Star Citizen, The Division, Dark & Light, and Fortnite.

In the interests of keeping everyone involved, lets say that CHH and CSV are not filled, but CJF, WC and CGB are, so that we go forward with the map as it currently is. I would be willing to move factions forward, regardless of canon, so that everyone can be involved.

However, if we suddenly get ten minor clan apps (regardless of the state of the invasion corridor), it may not be an issue since there will be plenty to do in the homeworlds.

All of this is speculation, as we've plenty of time to fill more clan spots and various individuals are talking to different clan-oriented teams to gauge interest.

Well it's 3062, so invasion corridor shouldn't be as much an issue imo, but I'll leave that to X.

(p.s. only CSA and CJF won the Trial of Refusal on Strana Mechty, but the timeline seems to be a little less stringent in the league).

Clan Goliath Scorpion won the right to accompany CSV

SaKhan Posavatz would later win a Trial of Possession against Clan Steel Viper in 3049 for the right to accompany them into the Inner Sphere, taking with him his retinue and a Star of 'Mechs.

Now I know this is very flimsy ground...

Question could a team take a merc unit to start with to help fill out the IS and later switch to a Minor clan once more Homeworld Clans sign up??
