[Total - 32]


FIRETEAM SPECIALIZATIONS

S&D | Search and destroy. General combatants that actively seek out hostile terminators for destruction. Only a proactive aggression will win the war.
Scout | Trackers and roadrunners. These men and women check a region's safety before the rest of the team advances. They are tasked with establishing watchposts for the Separatists.
Tech | Field engineers, sappers, technicians and doctors capable of a variety of skill-sets, including dismantling and transmuting SkyNET plasma technology, creating explosives, auto-repair, and so on.
Logistics | Managers of food, water, munitions and general supplies. These are the people who keep track of the fireteam's inventory, requests additional supplies from the Command Group, and initiates barters with other external entities if necessary.
Air Support | Pilots designated with the task of resupplying fireteams in the field through coordinated air-drops as well as supporting ground forces with long-distance missile strikes.
Fireteam Leader | Commanding personnel over the fireteam, charged with the well-being of all men and women under their wing as well as the recruitment of more.
Command Group | Tacticians and strategists among the upper echelons of the Separatist chain of command. They organize the larger operations of fireteams and coordinate with on-the-ground logistics to supply said fireteams.
IN REMEMBRANCE


Katie Bell | Kiwi | 06/05/2026 | Ambushed by SkyNET forces during ORSEP mission.
Cato Kabelo | Spades | 06/08/2026 | Was taken hostage by SkyNET during laboratory raid. Sacrificed himself to allow the team to complete the mission.





As per usual, the supply drop contains a letter from the Command Group.


In due time, Fireteam Salem will be reinforced with Scrapper specialists to aide in the field for search & destroy missions. This letter contains a brief and thorough know-how for working with Scrappers and Scrapper-bots.

To clarify: The act of scrapping is much different from reprogramming a terminator, as we have seen groups such as Tech-Com, Frente Humano and Valkyrie do. A scrapped terminator is NOT reprogrammed, and should not be treated as such.

After Tech-Com's Fresno company fell, the few survivors that went unrescued in the assault found their way into the arms of the Separatists. These former Tech-Com engineers have offered us a great deal of knowledge and resources regarding basic and rudimentary plasma technology, and the science of the terminators. However, let us be clear to remind that we do not condone the permanent use of terminators within our ranks. They are not allies, they are not friends or compatriots. They are machines. Tools to be used against their maker to win us the war. And they are most certainly not pets.

'Scrappers' as we have come to call them, are trained field-technicians capable of on-site CPU modification in the battlefield and under enemy fire. These technicians are tasked with the quickest possible adjustment of a terminator's targeting and recognition systems, and thus when reactivated the terminator in mention will resume its SkyNET protocols under those pretenses, using a plugged in laptop with Separatist scrapper software installed. Currently, our scrappers are capable of adjusting the targeting systems of terminators up to the T-700 series, as well as rudimentary Hunter-Killer models such as the T-70, T-400 and T-500.

As such, a scrapped terminator will be unable to differentiate human and inorganic targets, and as such will engage all targets as hostile. They are generally used in conjunction with guerilla tactics, or as distractions to escape/achieve other mission objectives. The minimum record for for field-time for this impairment in the field sits at 48 minutes and 33 seconds. At which point, SkyNET will reboot the terminator and will readjust its recognition systems to default.

The amount of scrapper personnel we have is very, very low and it will take some time to teach more people of this trade. Scrappers should be protected with extreme priority.

Good luck out there, Salem.

OOC

Scrappers will need to be authorized via the auth boards like any other reprogrammer character. However, the act of scrapping a terminator does not require an auth thread for each time you wish to do it. Rather, this is something that a scrapper can ask an admin on server to authorize in the heat of the moment. Frivolous use of scrapping will see your authorization as a scrapper revoked.

Scrapped terminators are not permanent characters. They are event characters, and do not serve any other purpose than described above, giving the SkyNET player behind the drone to portray a malfunctioning / hijacked terminator, while allowing some very fun moments in combat for Separatist players.

If you're interested in playing a scrapper in ORSEP, contact me first before you make your auth thread.






A Separatist command group coordinating strikes against passing SkyNET transports, circa 2025.
In the year 2005, an emerging group of doomsday-prepped survivors emerged from the underground and joined forces with the Canadian 39th brigade to further increase their chances of survival in a harsh new world. This entity, in time, became known as the Oregon Caravans.

As the first sightings of hunter-killers emerged around the the world, the post-nuclear survivors found that their suffering was far from over, as neither was SkyNET with their total extermination of mankind. The definition of survival expanded more from just outlasting the nuclear winter, and exacted the context of their situation. The future war had begun.

However, in time it became evident that the Triumvirate of families that wrestled dominance over the caravans had little interest in combating the extinction-level event hurling juggernaut that was the vast machine army, but rather focused more on establishing themselves as an entity on the local political stage in the west, and in-fighting shortly followed. Meanwhile, El Zorro's dominion faced the same dilemma: He was focused on the prospects to survive and rebuilding society in independent settlements associated to his name. And the Navajo Nation, while still ferociously combating SkyNET's advances, was equally consumed in its desire to reclaim its ancestral territories across the midwest.

Although few and far between, even some handful of Tech-Com's northernmost companies— possibly one of the foremost resistances around the globe, found that its attempts to reprogram SkyNET's machines and, in the eyes of their critics, keep them as pets, as well as rescuing slaves and its desire to uphold the framework of the US military of old, was seen to be a detriment in the war effort. The prophecy of John Connor was not enough to keep them serving beneath the double-helix.

In 2022, a transmission went far and wide to gather the men and women who sought to bring the fight to the enemy- without any chains of cultural or political obligation to bind them, or ambition to blind them. The Oregon Separatists were founded, and their banner found its influence farther out than the former beaver state as small numbers of soldiers, brigands and rebels joined under the name. It is to say that these Separatists hold no ill against their former associates, but the perspective of the entities they left behind certainly may have found the Separatists in foul taste.

The Separatists hold numerous former military in their ranks, and have acquired a deal of military assets, but are far from a militaristic entity. They lack any sort of territory beyond their headquarters- a former Caravan settlement dubbed "The Trench", nestled deep down into the underground Shanghai tunnels beneath Portland, Oregon. It is far from a fortress, but its invaders have found great difficulty combating the Separatists in their own labyrinth. Beyond the Trench, its combatants adapt to the harsh wastelands and perform consistent guerilla operations against SkyNET- contrasting from Tech-Com's remnant military might. Its cells are incredibly mobile, crafty, and let nothing stop them from dismantling their machine enemy, one CPU at a time.

Light Q&A since some people are asking:

Q: Why are you using a TC reference picture?
A: Cause its a picture that we feel goes along with how we wanna present the faction.

Q: This seems very familiar to Tech-Com.
A: Certainly so. Thematically it's based more on the film's depiction of Tech-Com from T1/T2 versus the Salvation portrayal, but this group is not Tech-Com. We wanted to have a group that portrayed that more mole-like resistance in the server and we figured that a PBG was the best way to go about it without upsetting the way Tech-Com is currently set up. This is in no way a 'dig' at Tech-Com. If you feel that way, apologies. This isn't a group that is 'against' Tech-Com IC or OOC.

Q: How do I join?
A: ICly, as you would any faction.

Q: I would like to give feedback, where can I?
A: Sure thing. Contact me on steam, forums or discord. Please keep the thread to roster updates and faction-related notices.

Q: What happened to Dirthome?
A: A passive group isn't long for TRP's climate unfortunately. You're free to play a character from it as a background as if it's still up ICly off-screen as you would with BIO-2 or 22A.
