Rough draft Medical Team - tell me what you think!

Medical
Primary Function: The health and well being of their fellow soldiers, applying magic and magitech in unison to provide both lifestyle medical care as well as emergency combat medical assistance in the field. 

Operations Medic: Operations Medics are combat trained emergency medical personal charged with keeping wounded soldiers alive and fighting - in situations of critical wounds they provide emergency care in hopes of stabilizing patients long enough to evacuate them. They employ a mixture of Magitech and magic to succeed in this role, however due to also being a combat position they are not truly White Mages, Clerics or Doctors.

Doctor: Doctor's are the backbone of the Medical Division, a specialized non-combat role they are often kept dangerously close to battlefields providing life saving medical techniques on critically wounded soldiers. Their job is amongst the most mentally demanding positions in the military, and their mixture of Magitech, magic and medical training makes them thy most qualified emergency medical personnel in all of the Terrenus. 

Chaplin: Chaplin's are Gaian Priests attached to the military, when magitech, magic and medical techniques fail the Chaplin provides emotional comfort to soldiers in their final moments. Furthermore they often run churches attached to military installations, providing religious support to any who serve. While not strictly in the business of saving lives sometimes they can provide support with the unique magic of the Church. 

Valkyries: Valkyries are the angels of all soldiers critically wounded in combat, an elite role of combat personal they rescue wounded soldiers even in the most horrendous of battlefields and transport them to medical facilities. Valkyries are unique in their use of Magitech powered wings which use a airships flotation core to give them flight. The Angels of the battlefield it isn't rare to see these men and women sweep down through the battlefields - a highly dangerous role they are also fierce warrior in their own right, making use of the cutting edge of Magitech to rain death on enemies just as they save ally.

@Old Man Jean

I've been looking to consolidate rather than expand, so rather than add a whole department dedicated to the medical, I picked the two that made the most sense to me. So I put OPMED in Operations, and Doctors in R&D

Chaplain didn't really need to be added, and I don't want to split the sparse interest the military gets down too many channels, and the Valkyries are just another operations unit. That one I'm a little softer on though, and think that would make a cool unit if workshopped a little more. I was thinking of calling them cloudwalkers rather than hearkening to pre-established external myths, too, and maybe replacing the raptor pilot unit

I think Valkyrie sounds way cooler, and fitting, given the role, but I can understand why you’d want a name without pre-existing lore attached to it. I myself had to search the term to understand what you were talking about though- I think it may be obscure enough mythology that you’d be able to get away with it, but that may also just be me

I chose Valkyrie for a simple reason.

The Emperor of Terrenus is named "Odin".

I agree the Valkyrie as a concept needs a bit more fleshing out, they are based on IRL US Airforce Pararescue, those dudes have saved more asses then I can count so I threw some respect for um into the my ideas but I'll work on the concept more and submit it again when it's had the work done it needed.

Nordic mythology, in my experience, is about the second most commonly referenced lore, next to Greek. The concept is dope af to be sure but I'd rather come up with something with a little more deviation even if it fulfills the same function in spirit

I've an eyewitness to the events following the sacking of Tormo for you.  I don't know where Tormo is located in Terrenus, so I was thinking the debutante might hit up the garrison in Hell's Gate.  If another location would make more sense, please let me know or just tag me in the OP if you would like to start.

Most of the LOD threads seem to be taking place in/around the dark forest, so ashville or hell's gate are both viable options for your character. HG has more tech capabilities so I can your character preferentially selecting that as the starting point 

That sounds good - when you have that thread up tag me or PM me and we'll go from there. Indicate that it's a closed thread please, either in the title or the body of the post

The Battle for Last Chance will be happening soon! Sharpen your guns and load your swords 🤺

I'm pretty sure Dredge is going to throttle how many people can join so I don't think it's a mob up kind of thread. That said @amenities is taking point on that and is coordinating military response so message him if you're interested
