So I've got a setting for my gaming group that's a generic mishmash of Contra
and Starship Troopers
, with a few drops of Star Wars
for good measure. There's an ongoing war, and the soldiers wear low-Powered Armor
(many of the soldiers have made mild customizations to the designs). Most of them have undergone certain treatments
to make them 3-5 times stronger and more resilient to damage (in other words, borderline Super Soldiers
There's another group (Project Vympel) who've undergone much more extensive genetic modifications
, and have had training that make Sparta
look like preschool
. In addition to the normal "upgrades" the regular soldiers, they've also got a few animal-like enhanced senses, and can be triggered into a blood range
via certain methods of the player's choice (such as a scent, code-phrase, or what have you).
My question is this: Should the Vympel soldiers have some sort of marking that identifies them as GEL Fs
(such as a tattoo, weird eye colors, etc.) when they're unarmored? Or should they just have a logo somewhere on their uniform as an ID?
Embroiled in slave rebellion, I escaped crucifixion simply by declaring 'I am Vito', everyone else apparently being called 'Spartacus'.
