    The twins smile. "Yeah.""Our schola was on a forge world""in the Gothic Sector.""We were born off planet""but something happened to it""we were too young to remember""but its gone now."

    The handed you the metal. "The different colors are from""different impurities in the metals." They picked up another piece, putting it in your other hand. ""The metals were mined from different locations""

    The twins leaned closer. "Kind of a poor refining job though.""Agreed Carol."

    They began mumbling to each other, examining various pieces, ignoring you.

    You ask if the sisters know where the metals came from.

    The look up at you, blinking as if they had forgotten you were there briefly. "Not without advanced analysis equipment.""And some extraction and slicing equipment."

    You leave the girls to their analysis, your mind gently probing every person here. You sensed no heresy within any of them and, other some lewd thoughts eminating from one of the tech priests who still had the right half of his brain, they were all clean.

    What are the other sisters in the area doing? If none of them seem interesting, try to talk to some of the mechanicus. They might be helpful in the long run. We should also contact our ship to see if there's any unusal tectonic activity on this planet( hoping there isn't another device but you can never be sure).

    Filigree grabbed the sororitas sisters, pulling them in. "YOU TWO ARE HELPING!!!" If she were human, the excitement caused by the onslaught of information would have probably given her a stroke by now. Or maybe the thought of identical twins just excited her.

    The sisters squeaked as they were dragged, into the circle of mechanicus. You were about to leave when your daemonette grabbed your arm. "I almost forgot! You left this in the device when you destroyed it." She handed you your force blade.

    You take it from her, putting it back in its sheath. You scan the area, lighting up another cigar. You spot Tybalt near the medical tent, playing fetch with one of the Ebon Chalice seraphim, much to the amusement of the sisters around them.

    The two canonesses were nearby, leaning against some rubble. They looked to be arguing over which weapon was better. The powerfist or the thunder hammer. You were a little worried that a fight might break out between them but you doubted anything would come of it.

    The sisters around you were either chatting, sparring, or in prayer.

    "Easy Filigree- don't break them, they may have some use for me yet. Sister Carol, Sister Coral- I may need your assistance in this matter. This device, Filigree, you said it could convert kinetic and thermal energy to punch holes in the materium? Are we able to tell how much energy is required to do this, or if there's any upper limit?
    Carol, Coral, you said that this device was of lower quality material and made planetside-what does that mean in terms of production, reliability, etc.? Who would be capable of producing this? What else can you tell me about it in terms of composition?"

    You pull the sisters free from Filigree's grasp, sitting down between to them. You take a deep breath, mumbling your remark about a Schola Progenium outing. The twins giggle a little, relaxing quite a bit.

    Now that your closer you notice that they both have opposite running scars on their neck, from one corner of their jaw to the opposite side of their collar bone. Other than that, they are impossible to tell apart. You aren't even sure which is which right now.

    You as them about their order. "As you know, Ebon Chalice is based on Terra and part of the Convent Prioris,""Founded by Saint Alicia Dominica." They laughed softly. ""Though a history lesson is not what you meant.""

    "As we said, we were born on a forgeworld""and got moved to the schola some time later.""We wern't sure of the order we wanted to join at first""but that soon became clear when a cult attacked the schola."

    They shifted uncomfortably. "We cannot remember which one of us it was.""Memories of intense emotion can blur with time.""But one of us was nearly killed when a cultist slit her throat""driving the other to kill the cultists in the room""Followed by attempted suicide.""

    They cringed a bit at the look on your face. "We were young and new to battle.""I don't think I could live without my sister..."

    they aren't twincesty. They were made this way originally because out DH party was too small and i had to play 3 characters so that we didn't get killed by overwhelming forces. So i made two characters that acted like one. Made it easier for me.

    Also, they're more fun to write for when they're creepy.

    Warp falls, everyone dies.

    Does our character even know the precise details of the infestation that tried to take over the sister's ship a few months ago? We had just sat down to talk to Tess and Verity when shit started blowing up and demons appeared. We've really had about zero time to interview people in a propper and through manner.

    Now what the heck is going on with these warp devices. Yeah they slam into the ground for the heat and kinetic boost to their power needs, they weren't described as being equipped to burrough deeper and even if they were they'd still be still be limited by the capabilities of the device. (Hell if they went deep enough they'd just melt into slag without some good protection.)

    "Presuming a device like this had access to unlimited enery reserves, would that have an effect on the size or intensity of the portal it could generate? And if so why not shove a few into a star and try to push the whole star system into the immaterium?"

    The last few posts in the last thread strongly implied that they were designed to burrow towards the center of planets, using all of the pressure and heat involved to open very large portals.

    (Esme can read minds and therefore intentions. She would have deduced that she was useful)

    The sisters shrug. "Its just the way its always been done.""It's so only the best are allowed."

    You call over Tybalt. He is frolicking and bounding around and through the legs of several sisters. One of them has a smashed shoulder plate, probably from the recent fight, and the other one had feathered hair instead of the normal sororitas bob. The dog flicked its ears up and began nudging them toward you, yipping and barking repeatedly in excitement.

    You reeeeaaally hoped he wouldn't start humping any legs.

    As the dog makes his way over, you ask about Florencia.

    The twins think for a little bit, their eyes randomly drifting about. "She's served as a Canoness for eighty years, was it?""I think it's ninety.""You might be right...""She is often recruited by scholas to teach young girls aspiring to join the orders militant what its about.""Scare them out of it really...""She doesn't believe that those of weaker will should be a part of the sororitas."

    The girls cringed a bit. "It would be better to stay on her good side.""I've never seen anyone poke fun at her like your Canoness is.""They must be total bros."

    You glance at the two women. They are holding up their enormous weapons threateningly, yelling at each other, though you are too far away to hear what.

    Your Cyber Mastiff calms down and you take the now ruined cigar out of your mouth and lighting up a new one, asking for the girl's names and presenting your own.

    The girl with the feathered hair spoke up. "Hello Inqusitor. I'm Sonja, and this is Elizabeth." She gestured to the sister with the smashed pauldron.

    "I'm afraid we can't talk very long. We were about to go over some drills when this guy showed up." She scratched Tybalt gently on the head. "Your timing is impeccable though. Verity has been asking for you." She nodded to the tent.

    Elizabeth just gave you a small smile, eyeing Filigree cautiously.

    "A combination of smoke inhalation and being struck in the neck damaged her voice." Sonja explained. "The medics told her to keep quiet while she recovered."

    You nod to the two newcomers. "Thank you. I'll leave Tybalt here. He can help you out. He knows all the basic close order drilling commands."

    Elizabeth and Sonja smile brightly, giving them a slight gesture of farewell. You turned to do the same for the twins, but they were gone. It was a moment before you realized that Filigree had dragged them off again, fidgeting around, unsure of which one to cling to first.

    "Yeah... Can you do me a huge favor and *not* tell the ebon chalice sisters about Filigree's... uniqueness..."

    They both cringed visibly, Elizabeth giving you a reluctant nod. They knew the repercussions of an action like that with a Canoness like Florencia so nearby.

    You quickly head over to the medical tent. Verity was currently working to re-align a civilian's broken arm. He had been knocked out for this process.

    She didn't see you come in.

    "Sister Verity?"

    She peeped, jumping a little, whirling around. "Oh! Inquisitor! You startled me."

    You take your cigar out of your mouth, dropping it and stepping on it. "You wanted to see me?"

    She nodded. "Yes. I was hoping you could help me heal some of these patients. Esme and Tessa both are currently trying to help civilians out of the rubble. A medical ship was supposed to have arrived by now." She looked annoyed. "What could be keeping it? There are people dying here." She gently brushed back the man's hair, moving to stitch a deep gash in his forehead.

    "Honestly, if they don't get here soon, the person in charge will be getting a face full of medical implant Hospitaller oath be damned!" She held up the large metal box attached to her wrist for emphasis.

    The hospitaller began deftly binding the man's arm in a makeshift splint. "You can start with anyone who has a red cloth or ribbon tied around their arm. They are bleeding internally, or have severe trauma that will kill them. Healing them fully would be a waste of energy. Just get them to a point where they won't die. Do not expend your energy, however, if they are already too far gone. I do not want to deal with perils of the warp in here. Then, if you feel up to it, move on to orange, yellow, and just ignore the white. When you get too tired, just try to make them as comfortable as possible"

    Verity finished the splint and took a small length of yellow ribbon and tied it gently around the man's unbroken wrist.

Did she exhibit any psychic phenomena?

    Verity's expression turned serious. "The warp tendrils were a real nightmare. I had never seen anything like them before. Sister Anna was saved because we got her helmet off before the creature had fully burrowed into her skin. Thats why her face is so scarred. Once the helmet was off, Esme simply sliced it in half and stomped on the radios inside. That killed it."

    Verity moved to a scrawny, whimpering man. He seemed to be missing several fingers and the bone in his leg was poking through his skin. Verity gave him an injection of painkiller. Immediately, he began to calm, closing his eyes and letting out his breath. She pulled a small gas tank off her belt, administering the anesthetic with a small rubber gas mask.

    "Ugh... I wish we had a medical servitor. It would be able to do this so much faster than I could." She began work stopping the blood flow from his hand.

    "The purity ritual really made me feel ill. My oath states I must work to prevent the deaths of those in service of the emperor and not to stand idly by when there is one in need...." She shook her head. "Nevertheless, I was too stunned when Esme stopped the ritual to really think anything at that point... She was like a beacon of light, the paint peeling from her armor, licked off by ethereal flames. It happened so fast I didn't really know what to think..."

    She finished with his hand, taking a good look at his leg before resetting it with a crack that would have surely caused a scream had her patient not been sleeping.

    You ask her if theres anything else significant she remembers about Esme, and what we should expect for the future.

    Verity shakes her head, moving onto the next patient, sedating her and ripping her shirt open without a second thought, carefully extracting huge chunks of glass and shrapnel from her exposed torso. "Nothing that really makes her stand out. Other than her ascension of course." She places an especially nasty piece of twisted metal into a medical tray. "I'd imagine, though, that her perception of this world and the immaterium alike is very different from our own. She's a trustworthy and honest person."

    She uses medical gel and sutures to close the deep lacerations, gently, running her hands over the girl's ribs and pressing on her stomach, searching for more debris. "You best remember that Inquisitor. She carries the torch of the Emperor into the unknown, and the sororitas will follow her in faith."

    Verity hesitated, pressing on one point again before a scalpel slit out of her medical implant with a gentle metalic tone.

    You bring up the warp portal machines.

    Verity shrugs, pointing the scalpel at you. "Less talking, more healing!" She slowly begins her operation. "I'd imagine a traitor got on your ship. That pod was probably knocked out and then the device implanted some time later and its presence on the pod kept it in a state of disrepair. Knowing how devious hellspawn and filthy witchkin are, no offense meant, it was probably cloaked from the cog boys through some... sort of... psykic... means... Oh Emperor..."

    With a grimace Verity gently closed the woman up, a bitter, decayed smell reaching your nose. Reluctantly, Verity extended a needle from her medical wrist mount, injecting the girl in the neck. She spasmed a moment later, flatlining.

    "Shrapnel had torn through her stomach..." She whispered, looking just a bit shaken, moving onto her next patient.

    You ask her why she's so comfortable around you.

    Verity gives you an odd look, the woman whose shoulder she was trying to relocate letting out a small whimper. "I'm uncomfortable around Filigree. What you did was blasphemous and heretical, but if she ends up being correct then it will be better that you did what you did. If not, I want your medical servitors when your executed."

    Two more hospitaller come in, carrying an injured boy in a stretcher between them. They are followed by several civilians in the rough equivalent of doctor's attire.

This will force it to slowly expand, but it will also get fat, for lack of a better word." She licked her lips, reaching into your pocket and taking one of your cigars. She lit it, taking a deep drag.

    "I'm surprised I didn't think of it sooner really. Sister Sabathiel did go to that planet to experiment with the concept of an over-saturated portal." She took another drag. "What would happen if the device had near infinite energy? Like if it burrowed into the planet's mantle? or core?" Her glittering black eyes fell on your face. "The entire planet would be engulfed by the warp portal, and that portal would stay open until the planet itself burned out... Think about it... Another tiny eye of terror." She cackled. "And that device is so easily and cheaply built! And with so much slave labor... PERMANENT warp portals! Everywhere! Thousands of them! Hundreds of thousands of them! All over the galaxy!"

    "Well done. Now get off me before you attract undue attention." Pull the force blade so Filigree and Verity can both see it clearly. "And may I make myself very clear, if you want to see the end of all this, you will never do that again. Understand."

    Stand up and dust myself off. Focus on drowning out the psychic emanations from the deaths of those around me so I can retain my calm.

    “This thing generates a warp portal and is able to maintain it, yet is simple to create and its plans are already known by several people.” Take cigar from Filigree and take a deep drag to calm down a bit. “If these things are not easy to protect against, I’m likely to condemn myself some more. Perhaps one of the Xenos knows a solution.”

    Filigree lets out a small laugh, pulling your bolt pistol from its holster and placing it in your hand, the barrel pressing between her breasts, at her heart.

    "Not going to purge me yet Inquisitor?" She was still smiling. "I've fulfilled my end of the bargain." she bit her lip, still grinning, and stood. "Heh... Heheheh... But now you've got me wondering... How are you going to prevent this? I'm sure Tzeentch-" Verity winced at the spoken name "-has something up his sleeve. Simply pulling planets into the warp would be too simple for one of his twisted plans..." She began to seriously think about it, her daemonic features fading.

    "Warp damn it! I'm curious again!"

    She looked around, noticing Verity for the first time. "Oh... Hi."

    The Garon Nebula is a part of Segmentum Tempestus, the most notable part of the nebula are the Hell Stars and it's here that the Crusade was fought. Little else other than the location of the Crusade is known, but it is often referred to as 'The ill fated Black Templar Crusade'. Why this is, is unknown. While investigating the crusade, Inquisitor Barzano wrote; "I saw the scene of a massacre where the dead lay on the ground in numbers like fallen leaves in a forest. The settlers had not died as soldiers die in the heat of battle, fired with ardor and courage, with weapons in their hands and exchanging blow for blow. They had died as the helpless must, with their hearts filled with horror worse than death itself."
    Well that's uplifting.

    Return to our ship then. Once we get there we need to set up special containment quarters for Filigree, from which she can communicate with us. We need to remind her again that WE are the one in control of the situation not her. If she makes a fuss about it tell her that we'll have her put in a sensory deprivation room if she acts up.

    We should also make use of the astropaths aboard and communicate the extent of this plot to the Inquisition. They can hopefully rush some forces into position and alert the Navy and Space Marine Chapters to be on the look out the suspicious drop ships.

    Not a half hour later you were back on your ship with the device, the techpriests, Elizabeth, Sonja, Carol, Coral, Filigree, and Tybalt. The tech priests go off to store the device and you order Tybalt to bring the sisters onto the bridge.

She's armed with mainly lascannons all around, and the hull itself is far thicker than most ships and it has a secondary hardened shield, sacrificing maneuverability for defense. As you can tell, she really isn't meant to enter direct combat. You saw all the fighters and bombers we have in the docking bay when you first boarded? We have seventeen more just like it as well as a bay full of cyclonic torpedos." He takes another puff. "She also has two backup Gellar fields in case the first one fails."

    You thank the captain and leave him.

    After asking the priests to bless your men and munitions, you request the tech priests inspect and bless the Gellar Fields as well as the exterior lascannons and munitions. The multitude of admechs agree, quickly scurrying off to do their jobs.

    You return to the bridge to find Filigree pulling at her own hair. "Oh god this is painfully difficult... You sadistic kinky bitch! I had no idea you were into this sort of thing!"

    (Would have preferred something in first person but alright then. I'm in a good mood and full of sugary goodness :P)

    You take your place on the bridge, radioing to the Canoness your next move before jumping to warp space.

    Almost immediately you notice something wrong. The ship is pitching and vibrating badly, the hull letting out a soft groan as the immaterium presses down upon the Gellar Field. It seems to be holding just fine, but the rough, undulating energy pitched the flagship this way and that. You had to grip the railing tightly to keep from tumbling head over heels, Filigree and the rest of the people present on the bridge gripping seats or consoles to stay in place.

    You can hear the reports around you. "This isn't good for the hull. Its getting strained in areas.""Gellar field holding for now.""Field at 83% power. Estimated time before failure is 2 hours."

    You sensed the two Sisters' ships warp in behind you. Your radio almost immediately crackles to life. "Inqusitor! We can't stay here for long! Our Gellar field won't hold."
    >> Anonymous 10/18/10(Mon)00:42 No.12484686
    "Alright Cannoness, I'll try to make this quick- if your Gellar field begins to break down, Jump. I'm good for two hours here, at least, and am more then capable of defending myself. "
    To Filigree
    "What do you pick up?"
    We ourselves should begin psykicly scanning the vicinty, though we should tell our astropaths to hold off for the moment.
    Also, do we have any sensors to help us in our endevor?
    >> His Divine Power 10/18/10(Mon)01:36 No.12485218

    Galatea was first to reply. "I have a little over an hour and a half inquisitor." And then Florencia. "I have about the same. But if the warp gets any worse we should all drop out. Getting separated could mean death at this point."

    You look to Filigree. She's sitting rigid, her eyes glued to the window.

    "I can feel my siblings out there. Mixed with other daemons, some of which I have never seen the likes of... They want to come in... They want to devour the ship and all aboard." She looked up at you, her eyes glinting. "Heh... This is exciting..."

    You were about to order a psykic scan but hesitated. Not even Filigree knew some of the daemons out there. It could be suicide to try.

    You hear Esme's voice over the radio. "My powers are great, but I cannot shield an entire ship alone, much less three, but I shall attempt to fight off the encroaching daemons."

    Her voice dropped a bit. "Inquisitor. If your Gellar shields begin to fail, do not hesitate to leave me behind and get to safety, regardless of the number of daemons around. Is that understood?"

    "Heh, you wish. We should be able to buy the others more than enough time and their ships are adequate to coordinate the evactuation. No way I'm gonna let you do this alone." Light another cigar. "I've never heard of an Inquisitor who retired and passed away peacefully in his bed, anyway."
    "Filigree, any way we could trick the daemons into only attacking our ship? If we could somehow trick them to board the ship we should be able to drop back into the materium with our guests in tow. Any idea how to make this work?"

    >> His Divine Power 10/18/10(Mon)10:35 No.12488411

    Esme's voice crackled over the radio again. "That could work Inquisitor, but you misunderstand."

    The entire bridge gets very bright very quickly. You hear a knocking on your front window. Esme is hovering outside, the warp shying away from her divine aura. "If your gellar fields fail, do not hesitate to leave me behind. Galatea and Florencia already understand this."

    She turned and shot off into the depths of the warp like a rocket, the screech of daemons loud enough to be heard inside the insulated bridge.

    The crew turned their gazes to you as Carol and Coral walked in, moving along the wall for balance. A short balding man spoke up. "What are your orders Inquisitor?"

    one of your crew answers, looking up at you, "Gellar shields are maintaining at 80% Inquisitor!"

    You're a bit too... Jumpy? You went in and out of the thread so many times, the Hivemind probably has lost some of their number to f5-exhaustion or sleep. :P

    Continue as planned. Grumble in the general direction of Saint Esme, but then quickly offer a prayer to the Throne of Terra for her protection. See if this bothers Filigree. Do it some more.

    Go bother the tech-- On second thought, don't. Seethe in bridge and grumble about being unable to do anything, then seize the vox and start leading a Litany.

    since i have nothing else to do for an hour and a half...

    The devices burrow into planets and turn them into perpetual warp portals. They are being made on backwater planets using mind controlled slaves.

    *spoiler* Chaos doesn't use the worms to take over the universe because the mind controlled slaves suck at being cultists.

    You just took off from the hiveworld after hearing a report that there were planets being taken over. You jumped to warp to get there faster. The warp is violent. Your gellar fields are slowly failing. Esme jumped overboard to deal with the warp-sharks.

    You have 4 sisters on your ship. Two martyred lady (elizabeth and sonja) and two Ebon Chalice (Carol and Coral)

    Filigree is starting to act all daemonettey and overly excited. She claims to hear what the daemons are saying
    >> His Divine Power 10/19/10(Tue)15:43 No.12502669

    (i'm jumpy because i'm juggling this between homework and stuff and being sleepy half the time)

    You huff, a little pissed that Esme was being so reckless... and that she was taking all the glory. Forcing your anger down, you offer a prayer to the emperor for her safety, cracking one eye to see if Filigree was at all bothered by this. It was clear she couldn't hear you over the noise of the hull and bridge, but she seemed a little uncomfortable. Perhaps she could feel it through her binding. You continue to pray, watching her calm down and even get a little depressed.

    You end the prayer with an "Ave Imperator," your anger quickly returning at your helplessness. You grab the vox, not really caring that you were supposed to keep radio use to a minimum, and led the entire crew in a Litany of Triumph, grinning inwardly as Filigree squirmed, shooting you hateful looks.

    You do this for some time before a sharp impact nearly knocks you over, the ship lisping heavily to one side. Several red warning lights start flashing, your daemonette slumping back in her chair, thankful that the litany had stopped.

    "We've been hit by a huge wave of Warp energy on our port side! Our Gellar fields are down to 20%! We can't take another hit!" Another crew member spoke up. "We're getting reports from the Sisters' ships are in the same condition! Inquisitor! What should we do?"

    You don't respond as you literally see the warp undulating toward you through the window of the bridge. A streak of silver and white snaps you out of your stupor as Esme slices cleanly through it, breaking the pulse before it hit the ship. She was flying at an amazing speed, her efforts buying you a few minutes. The ship shuddered again as another wave hit it, this one significantly weaker."

    "We're down to 15% Inquisitor! We need orders!"

    You punch up the console, connecting with both Florencia and Galatea. "We need to exit warp space. Get ready!"

    Forencia nearly fell away from the communications screen as a huge blast rocked her ship. You could hear the sound of bolters in the background on her ship, red warning lights flashing everywhere. "It's about damn time!"

    Galatea nodded. "We were about to call you Inquisitor." Her powerfist was drenched in blood.

    "What about Esme?" you ask.

    Galatea is first to respond. "If she says go without her, that is what we must do. The warp will not take her."

    You nod and a crew member looked up at you. "We're ready Inquisitor."

    You nod, holding up your hand. "Alright warp out on my mark!" Both Canonesses nod, looking tense. "3... 2... 1... Mark!"
    >> His Divine Power 10/19/10(Tue)18:19 No.12504427

    With a shriek like tearing metal, all three ships tumble back into real space. It took you a moment to reorient yourself, realizing you dropped your cigar. You look out the front window. You're fairly certain your heart skipped a beat.

    The two Sisters' ships were there, and just beyond that was a massive craftworld, lights flickering all around it.

    You were still wondering what they were when a massive brightlance blast seared the void several hundred feet from your port side, making you visibly flinch.

    Had they noticed...? No...

    Upon closer inspection, you could see tiny shapes swarming about the craftworld. They were under attack.

    "Inquisitor!" it was one of your acolytes. "There is a massive warp portal to our rear! Daemons are rushing out of-"

    He didn't get to finish as a massive... thing rushed by your ship. It was a sickly brownish grey, its body irregular, almost blob like. It had a faint mother-of-perl sheen to it.

    You were still staring after it when Filigree spoke up.

    "What in the unholy name of the Great Serpent is that fucking thing!?"

    You don't move for a moment, calmly taking out another cigar and lighting it, taking a long drag before speaking. "Are the engine's damaged?"


    "Is hull integrity compromised?"

    "Well no but..."

    "Weapons online?"

    "Yes but you're not seriously thinking-"
