No dude i get it. Hellfighters are ODSTs the same way members of Tier 1 are SEALs.

Do you call a soldier a pilot because he flies into battle on a helicopter? No, you don't. Thus why these guys are ticked when you call them ODST's. An ODST is a Marine who volunteers for a special service. These guys are from the Special Forces, so they consider themselves different. It is a matter of unit pride.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

Dude they dropped into battle in HEVs, only ODSTs do that. They wear and use ODST equipment. Therefor Hellfighters = ODSTs

Dha'Ward, another thing: Worth&Powers are not your characters, so what you say about them doesn't matter. It's what I say that does.

No, but you are insisting they are ODST's. In character creation I decided they were not, so that is how I will play them.

Its is still going to be easier just to say ODSTs. rather then Hellfighters.



Also this conversation made me make this.

If you call the characters ODST's, don't be surprised if they take issue with it. End of story.

I'm not going to argue this anymore. My character isnt an ODST, but if youre going to make that assumption, feel free.

Let's all take a deep breath and realize a few things here.

1: Drake and Adeptus. In your character descriptions, you said your characters were SpecWarCom operators whose unit was specifically known as 'Hellfighters'. But you also said that you were an ODST Recon support team, and Adeptus specifically said "he wasn't the average candidate for the ODST". That fact, combined with your ODST appearance and use of ODST equipment, I think a lot of people assumed you were a BRANCH of the ODST's, not a completely different unit.

2: I noticed that the other Spartan players didn't catch onto the fact you guys were a different unit, but I didn't say anything because it could have been a somewhat interesting conversation piece at some point in the story. I also made sure my character never addressed them as ODST's, I only used it in my character's personal thoughts. Rusty called them 'Hellfighters' in the briefing room.  I was planning on using it later, but now that people have thrown a hissy fit over it, I guess not.  Remember, if you want a good RPG, not all mistakes and/or misunderstandings by your character are negative. You can use them to your advantage later.

3: 
But to prove a point if you ever meet a Delta force guy, call him a ranger.
No shi t, sherlock. Guess what, a Delta Force operator would never identify himself as a Ranger Recon Unit. There is blame to be laid on both sides for this confusion and subsequent argument.
So 117 was an ODST on Delta Halo?
Adeptus, you are brand new here. I would appreciate it if you weren't a twat to our several-year veteran members. You knew what he meant, this comment was out of pure smartass idiocy.

If you look at it, that is exactly what I was trying to do in the RP. Then I get thrown this:

Drake i understand your Hellfighters but your still ODSTs. Hence why we keep calling them that.

Which forces me to explain, out of character, why my guys care. Then I'm told I'm wrong, and that my guys really are ODST's, so I shouldn't be making the point in the RP.

Pro Tip: When a character disagrees with your character, don't try and sort it out out of character.

Sorry that i'm trying to remove misconceptions about my character. If you want to call my character an ODST go right ahead, I'm not going to argue this anymore.

Yeah, I figured that is what you were going for. That's why I said nothing and played along.

Which forces me to explain, out of character, why my guys care. Then I'm told I'm wrong, and that my guys really are ODST's, so I shouldn't be making the point in the RP.

Hence why I tried to explain in the above post, because the others didn't notice the distinction.

Very good point! All good RPG's have good character-on-character conflict.
