Ghosts of Retribution... I summon you! Game will begin shortly
Current status of the Chapter.last thread is here http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19361738/
i bamp eet
We're on the ice world, right?Take a good look at the locals, see if they are astartes recruits material.Take a good look at the surface, look for a place to set up a monastery atcheck for mineral deposts and mining areasattend the festival, express graditude for thier efforts and speak to the leaders
>>19371624I second all of those
I am here! Lucky I just happened to be browsing /tg/ at this exact time.
>>19371580Send word to Klementhos (Master Apothacary) to immediately start testing on some of the locals, use volunteers to assist in this work.
>>19371580Your fleet leaves Nestorius' system for Mormark, to meet up with Captain Brethorius. This time travel last a lot longer, but after a few months you finally arrive at your destination. As soon as you come into the system, 'Morbid' greets you. It seems because of delays in the warp, they just arrived and Brethorius came down to negotiate with Lord Regent Kerius of Mormark just two days ago. Locals seem to appreciate Astartes a lot, so there is a whole festival in their honour at the moment.As soon as you land, Brethorius approaches you:>My Lord, these people know how to greet guests... Their leader, Kerius is a man of honour and strength, he rules this world with an iron fist and unyielding dedication to the Emperor. We, Angels of Death, are considered to be his sons, so in their eyes we are warriors of legends...picture: Kanihirium, fortress-capital of Mormark
>>19371662"proceed Brethorius, with this opression, they will make a good soldier, we could offer them place in our chapter in the future"
>>19371685>>19371662"bring me to Kerius, I wish to speak with him"
>>19371624>>19371653Klementhos bows to you:>My lord, I will begin testing local gene-pool at once. However if we will want to start recruiting people from here, you should acquire permission from the local leader, because as you might be aware, most of the applicants will die... For each recruit we get, thousands might die. I don't think local authorities would be happy about this if we would do it without consulting them.>>19371646welcome, brother Isaac
>>19371662> That is good news Brother Bethorius, let us meet this Kerius then.Meet with the leader, and begin negotiations concerning a type of alliance. Inform them that we are looking for ground to place our Monestary upon, and ask to get a look at his "best men" and begin the screening. Ask about any problems that have been ocurring within the sector, and see if he has any updated star maps.
>>19371670Can we appoint Geron head of scout company when we start recruiting?After all he has done for us, I think he deserves a promotion.
>>19371734but he is awaaay, so we might need to look for the proper scout sergeant, for a proper combat scout, not the black ops type
>>19371734I don't think we should hand something like that out willy nilly. Plus he's an expert in intel gathering and all that kind of thing, that doesn't transgress well into "Leading a company" We need him for more important things at the moment. If we made him captain, it would get in the way of the important duties right now. At another time, I'd probably agree though.
>>19371734>>19371759Good points, but someday, hopefully, he will get repaid for all he has done.If he dies I will be very sad.
>>19371670oh my god, i love you so much>>19371685>>19371703Brethorius arranges for you(and any number of marines that you allow) to join the festival. This festival will last for 7 days(two have already passed), Mormarkians have prepared over 60 tonnes of food(not some rations that they themselves usually eat, but great beasts that they hunted down in ice wastes). When you come into the main square of Kanihirium, anthem of Mormark starts playing and Kernius bows before you.> I am glad to see you here, sky Lord. We have waited for this day a long time.picture: kernius
"kernius, we greatly appreciate the celebrations you have prepared for us, actually we have a proposal for you, an offer you cannot refuse..."close in and whisper "we would like to create a fortress monastery here, and we need your blessinng, for a very handsome compensation of course"
>>19371834http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-8gwx71B0U&feature=relatedAnthem of Mormark is just like it's people - strong and grim in it's attitude and powerful enough to send chills down even your enhanced spine.
>>19371834"And it is an honour for us to be here. We have heard good things about you and your devotion to the Emperor and we hope that you do not dissapoint."Then, tell him that we are considering setting up a monastery here. After that, talk to him about the possiblity of recruitment. Most recruits will fail, many will die and only a rare few will become marine initiates and those are always sterile.The candidates must always be young and capable, but it would be good for his people if they had also sired children already so that their strength is not lost to the future generations.
Might be a good idea to offer to glean any parts of the population that are particularly "hardy" but otherwise a nuisance, through recruitment.
>>19371734Would you like to promote Geron to Master Scout?>>19371732>>19371869Kernius is open to the idea of you building a base here.>As long as it doesn't bring any damage to my people, you are free to use our icy mountains or endless snow wastes to build your fortifications. >>19371759You can give some of your men a test to see who's worthy, or just speak with potential candidates. would you like to do that?>>19371767Would you like to appoint him as Captain? Bear in mind - Master of Scouts and Captain are two different positions, because Master of Scouts is responsible for Scouts in all companies and all special operations.
>>19371927"We will use the fortress to strike out against the vile and worthless enemies of Him on Terra."I suggest building it in the mountains. Also, we should send for the Ad Mech builders in that case.
>>19371927If Master of Scouts include heading all our spy intel networks, then I think that would be fitting.
>>19371927"of course Lord Regent, Astartes will always abide the code of Imperium, now you might sign it here, and we ould be family now"
Kill yourself for still playing with this outdated piece of shit.Get of my /tg/ you faggots
Can we get a list of all the unfilled important positions?We already have a chief librarian, master of th eforge, chief apothecary and so on, but what position do we still need to fill.Diplomat, maybe?
>>19371898>>19371918>I am the sole leader of Mormark as long as it concerns defence of my people, but regarding this question, no matter how much I respect you, I will need to consult my generals. At the same time, you are approached by local representive from Ministorium:>Sky Lord, this celebration in your honour has a very special rite, that was recorded in our legends. Would you agree to take part in Journey of Faith? As he explains to you, Journey of Faith is a pilgrimage to the ancient temple deep in the ice canyons of Mormark. It is an ancient tradition, that was done by the first colonists on Mormark, but no one has dared to do it ever since, because it is almost impossible for mortals to survive the dangers. You would need to visit that temple and light the Fire of Faith on it's beacon. You are allowed to take a band of warriors with you, but you are expected not to use any mechanical means of transportation. Do you agree with this?Also, Brethorius reports to you that there were problems with a certain brother Ectus, who participated in illegal brawl club and by accident killed 4 locals...
>>19371997Shut the fuck up I told you to get lost faggot
>>19372012We will agree to the pilgrimage.Investigate the brawl, find out why the whole thing turned out the way it did, assign appropriate penence if our marine does not have a good enough explanation.
>>19372013oh hi, have a comic>>19372012take 5 assault marines, Brethorius and 40 battle brother with us"we would like to have it, Regent"
>>19372012I say agree to the Rite, and bring a squad of our finest warriors, and an apothocary.Ectus should be stand trial within the Space Marines. He doesn't need to me killed or anything, but he should serve time and penance.
>>19371997Technically, you can create any positions that you think your chapter requires, I look only at specific skills that each character has. If you plan to have large scale land battles, you would need Grand Strategist.If you plan fleet battles - Fleet Commander.If you plan to have diplomatic missions - Chapter EmissaryIf you want to establish some kind of Imperial or otherwise cult - ChaplainIf you want have someone responsible for scouting operations and blackops - Master ScoutIf you want to play dirty with intelligence and spy networks - Shadow CoordinatorIf you want a trade representative - Master of CoinIf you want someone to make new weapons - Master Weaponsmithetc. bear in mind, that titles are not set in stone, I just use whatever sound for me cool enough.
>>19372087next action also"ECTUS, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? EXPLAIN YOURSELF!"also put him on our warband list
>>19372103Shadow coordinator should be called Master of Whispers, just saying.
>>19372107>"ECTUS, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? EXPLAIN YOURSELF!"Yeah, ask him what happened, just not so violently. Our diplomatic standing with the locals is rather imortant and killing them without a good reason can hurt both in the long and short term.
>>19372125I would agree to that. Or Master of Shadows.
>>19372156Master of Faggots
>>19372059>>19372107Ectus seems to feel that he has done nothing wrong, but he tries to keep himself humble:>Chapter Master, you must understand, that they goaded me into it... They told me, that they have fights like this all the time and that it will be very interesting to see me participate in one. So I uh, wanted to defend the honour of the Chapter. I am sorry about how it turned out, but atleast I can donate my winnings for the Chapter treasury, I don't know much about the value of their money, but they told me it's a lot. (estimated value - d2 Wealth).>>19372125that's the title I was looking for, thanks Anon!
>>19372173>Chapter Master, you must understand, that they goaded me into it... They told me, that they have fights like this all the time and that it will be very interesting to see me participate in one. So I uh, wanted to defend the honour of the Chapter.

(estimated value - d2 Wealth).Very well, I see that you acted with honour in mind. Their deaths are unfortunate, however and I expect of you to personally explain this to the local leaders if they request an explanation.
rolled 1 = 1>>19372173"i understand your reasons, but killing civilians is a major crime, please forgive my brother, as he has yet taste the wisdom of imperium""now ectus, to redeem yourself, embark on the journey with us, but you will only have one magazine of bolter as punishment"final roll 7 marine, 2 assault, ectus, 1 regular apothecary, and the don"klementhos, start looking for recruits, prinium, contact Fabricator General ASAP, we need the monastery done, Brethorius, keep the order with civilian, make sure we dont have another ectus"spend 250 W for monastery please

>>19372234Mechanicus sent an astropathic message through Nerial, that their construction fleet is already on their way.Brethorius continues to enjoy local hospitality, but promised that marines who will create problems will get 1 year of isolation, so it seems to work for now.Do you accept Ectus' offer of d2 Wealth? if yes - roll.
rolled 56 + 1 = 57>>19372354"we do it normal and long way, its a rite of passage, ment to test our skills"roll for journey, luck, and wealth

>>19372466He is probably dead, hurry forward, maintain formation and watch out for the rocks
>>19372466"men! follow me!"go to 5 miles ahead, to a positions 2 marines on high ground to get a clear scout information
>>19372477Hurry forward trying to avoid the place of Harmantos' last transmission, or towards it?
>>19372483towards his position sorry
>>19372481This is the valley in which Harmantos last reported. You managed to get there as quickly as possible, but it still took you more than an hour. You are right now on the southern part of the valley, with a good view of everything below. There are quite a lot of rocks everywhere, whatever Harmantos meant by his last words. Roll d100 for Perception
>>19372483I agree, he could still be alive. Forward men!
rolled 49 = 49>>19372520Rolling for perception
rolled 65 = 65>>19372520preception check"brothers, look for any clues, get a good high ground and maintain loose formations"
rolled 98 = 98>>19372520Rolling Perception
>>19372579"men, tread carefully, follow this tracks closely, prepare for any ambush, remember your training"
Stick together, maintain formation and keep moving. Keep your weapons ready and senses sharp at all times.And hurry, we might still get a chance to get him out of there alive if we make it in time.And, watch out for the rocks.
rolled 92 = 92>>19372579Tell the assault marines to stay back and await orders to engage, proceed towards the location mentioned. Be wary of the rocks...
rolled 88 = 88>>19372665defence and attack!
rolled 33 = 33Maximum defense, they will run out of rocks soon and then we can move in and kill them. Whatever they are.
>>19372681"DO NOT FALTER MEN, UNLOAD THE RETRIBUTIONS UPON YOUR ENEMIES!"
>>19372688>what if they don't
>>19372681Now you can finally see them, huge hulking figures on top of the cliffs on the northern side of the valley, throwing can-sized rocks as if they were feathers...'For the Emperor! Defend the Chapter Master!' your marines open bolter fire from behind the cover, but it doesn't seem to be hitting anything, hail of rocks is just too strong, so you decide to better take full cover. One of your men, Renard, is unlucky and gets hit by a huge rock in the chest. Power armour is more than enough to protect him, but before he can get up, next two rocks that beasts smash on his helmet, knocking his communications out. Renard is lying on the field, either unconscious or dead...Tercius contacts you through vox-channel.>Sir, we occupy higher ground and count between 22 and 35 hostiles, they haven't spotted us yet, should we engage, over.
>>19372742tell them to engage, get Renard into cover and get him medical assistance.Make sure to use any opportunities tercius opens up
>>19372742"Tercius, signal for retreat, Ectus, drag Renard to safety, MEN, RETREAT, to that formation of rocks! unload the flashbang and inferno grenade to hold their advance!"
rolled 57 = 57>>19372778roll for this
>>19372742Open fire, but watch out for the rocks, these things have good throwing arms
>>19372761Gah, no way. 2 Marines couldn't take all that, and we couldn't get up there fast enough to help out. Have them provide cover fire while we move up to engage, then have them come in.
rolled 88 = 88>>19372785also roll if it hits the on the knee
rolled 50 = 50>>19372922
Permission granted.They must have used their best and biggest stones by now, time to shoot them all down.
>>19372922"Strike from the skies Brothers! Engage!" Whip out power weapon and rush the Yetis. Have three of the squad join in the assault, while having the rest hurl frag grenades and giving cover fire before we hit their lines.
rolled 19 = 19>>19372929"what are their positions? find their weakest place of formation and strike from the skies! to me!"raise broken hand, flank the enemy, find small concentration of 3 yeti a bit farther than the rest, strike it HARD
rolled 86 = 86>>19372929
>>19372974Two men should be able to carry him, and Inirium wants a noble death, let him have it. We'll erect a statue in his honour.
rolled 100 = 100>>19372974>>19372961no retreat, hurl everything, for glory and retributions
>>19372974We have a heavy bolter?! Have him unload as we charge em!
>>19372974What? No retreat, let the ones on higher grond distract them with bolter fire. Once the ice beasts are distracted, nail them with everything.Then, we can let the apothecary do his thing. We did take one, right?
>>19373015We do have one yes.
>>19372957>>19372957>>19372961>>19372948http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JD-A1Ld9P5M#!some music by berserk to fit the atmosphere
>>19373142"CHARGE! APOTECHER, GO GET TERION, CHILDREN OF EMPEROR, MAY RETRIBUTIONS FALL UPON THE WRETCHED!"
>>19373142"Push the advantage Brothers! Reinforcements!"Come to Ectus' aid to free him up and continue fighting!
rolled 70 = 70>>19373142rolling for beast morale. They need less than 60 to pass, on less than 10 they will be enraged
>>19373192O YEAH! RUN MOTHERFUCKER RUNNNN!*slash the wrath of corax brutally to the yetis*
Don't slow down, keel fighting.We must recover the wounded as soon as we are done.
>>19373192"Squad Broken!"Mow them down as they retreat. Call up the Apothecary and have someone bring up the unconcious man.
rolled 27 = 27>>19373192do you want to pursue beasts?
>>19373266Speaking OOC of course
>>19373282"gun them down brothers, but don't pursue, apothecary how is terion? is it really hopeless?"
Quick question, what is the flaw in our gene seed?
>>19373282Have the apothecary, the wounded and one more stay back, the rest are to pursue. The loss of an arm is acceptable, the loss of one of the emperor's most expensive servants is not.
>>19373287speaking OOC :i vote for health check, i mean, no man left behind right?
>>19373302Raven Guard, your progenitors, played a lot with their genetics during the Horus Heresy. You have certain problems of you own, if you want to - I can prepare a detailed overview of your gene-seed and it's traits.Flectus is very grim:>My Lord, there is no way to save Terion out here. We can call our reinforcements, but the people of Mormark might lose faith in us, for not adhering to the ideal of warrior-gods that they imagine us to be. A god that can bleed is no god. However he's a brother, a valuable marine that showed valour in face of danger. There is a third option, apart from letting him die or saving him. I can put him in such a state of hybernation, that he will last long enough for us to finish this quest, but afterwards there will be no other chance to save him apart from putting him into the Dreadnought sarcophagus... However I am not sure whether you think, that he deserves such an honour, he is not even a veteran.
>>19373282see a thousand yard stares from the apothecary"seems like no hope then, emperor's mercy will be upon you, Theiron"
>>19373363"It is an unfortunate thing Flectus, but there is wisdom in your words. Grant him the Emperors Mercy, and let us carry on."Attempt to hail our missing man one last time. If we get nothing back we move on."Harmantos knows his duty. If he can he will catch up to us. Let us leave this hellish place"Continue with the Rite.
>>19373413OOCObviously bring the knocked out guy with us, and grab Teiron's flamer and give it to one of the Assault Marines.
Well, it's about time someone starts writing chronicles...Roll d100 for journey and d10 for luck
rolled 16 = 16>>19373496"Flectus, I bestowed upon you the book of the dead, record the sacrifices of our brothers, so others may live on"roll for journey
rolled 9 = 9Rolling luck

rolled 79 = 79>>19373566Rolling!
rolled 78 = 78>>19373566read inscriptions and then "be careful everyone, assault marines on the flank, the rest column formations and sweep the temple closely, do not break formation"
>>19373566Proceed with caution, watching out for any kind of traps that could be around, or any other native creatures.
>>19373496and by writing chronicles, I meant someone noting it irl, because I have my hands full trying to reply as soon as possible.>>19373577you think that shape of one of the runes reminds a bolter. could it be a warning?
rolled 13 = 13roll for bridge, welp"we cross the bridge men, dont hate me for this"
rolled 31 = 31Rolling to Cross the Bridge...FFFFFFF
>>19373685It seems everything is ok, you managed to cross the bridge without any problems... as you approach the temple, you notice that it is truly ancient, probably a few millenia old. The main gate is closed. Do you want to break it down or do you search for alternative route?
>>19373753OOC : propose to kick the door in, insert knock2 jokes here
>>19373753Is the front gate locked?
rolled 53 = 53>>19373753*knock knock* "excuse me"enter normally, politely
>>19373775>>19373781the gate is locked/frozen shut.Kay approaches you:>Sir, I think I see a hole in the roof, maybe I should fly up there and open it from inside?
>>19373753Look for an alternative route, tearing it down would be disrespectful.
>>19373801"be careful on the way there, bring Tercius with you"
>>19373805Do you want Kay to jump or just look for another alternative route.For the note, you are deep in the canyon, from all sides there are huge mountains that carry echo of your footsteps for hundreds of meters.
>>19373801"Good eyes Kay, please do but be on guard. We don't know what's inside."
Let Kay jump
>>19373840PFFFT, nevermind, disregard that."No Brother Kay. The sound travels for quite some distance. I don't want to risk starting an avalanche if I can help it."
rolled 55 = 55>>19373864>>19373801"kay, climb it, dont try to jump with your jet"
>>19373877>>19373864jump or don't jump?if yes, roll d100 if no - what do you do?
>>19373905>Ok, sir, I will try to do my best...Kay manages to climb up, but only barely, it's not the best idea to send someone climbing who has a fuck-huge jetpack on his back.>Sir, I think I found a nest of some local flying wildlife. They are quite big, sir. Should I proceed?if yes, roll d100
rolled 99 = 99>>19373907jump
rolled 73 = 73>>19373964HAHAHAH oh god."If you can get to the hole Brother Kay, ignore them. If they attack you show them no mercy."Rolling for whatever. To get to the hole?
rolled 75 = 75>>19373945"ok come back down, lets find a better way in"roll for preception
>>19373964>As you say sir, jumping away from them...Like a small missile, Kay jumps out of the roof of ancient temple, his jetpack howling on full power... Echo magnifies it a thousand times and you hear a slow rumbling sound from somewhere above you.Ectus turns to you:>Sir, it's an avalanche! We still have a few minutes until it reaches us! What do we do?Flectus keeps looking at the sky.>Don, i think avalanche is not the biggest of our problems...
rolled 64 = 64>>19374028oh fuck, roll for finding cover, and shotting at them
rolled 40 = 40also roll to melta the door, so we can take cover inside
>>19374028"Everyone to me! Provide coving fire for Brother Kay! Someone get those doors open!"Do we have meltabombs? If so, blow open the door.
>>19374055>>19374065It's a good thing, that brother Sulix brought 2 meltabombs with himself,.. You destroy the door, while shooting your last rounds to keep the beasts away and you quickly run into the temple.Meanwhile, Kay continues to grapple with one of the beasts in midair, while snow and rocks are falling all around them... Roll d100 for him.NOTE: SQUAD IS LOW ON AMMO.>>19373496also, this post had a wrong picture, posted techgrades instead of teirons sacrifice
rolled 27 = 27>>19374125Rolling for mah man Kay! I hope I don't fuck up!
>>19374159Monster tries to swallow Kay whole, but he manages to evade jaws of certain death and with a powerful strike almost completely hacks of monster's wing,,, Using his last remnants of jetpack fuel, he darts through the temple door, just as the all-crushing wave of avalanche smashes into the mountainside. You and your squad hurry deeper into the bowels of the temple to shelter yourselves. However now you find yourselves in a situation that is hard to envy - you are cut off from the outside world, with no supplies or ammunition and the best news of all is that it seems that this temple was not built by humans afterall... Or atleast not it's inner, old part. However it seems that colonists or whoever converted it, where devout followers of the Emperor, so you notice Aquilas branded on the face of the old sigils and statues of the Imperial saints on the platforms that earlier held something else... How do you proceed?
>>19374245Cautiosly venture deeper into the temple, finding out about the history of this place, and if there could be any under ground passages or anything else that could be used to our advantage, old store rooms housing antique weaponry etc.
>>19374257you search for STC?
rolled 80 = 80>>19374245Hand out any ammo I have left since I no longer have a bolter and proceed deeper into the temple, cautiously...
>>19374269roll d100 for that, Do you want everyone to participate in this?
rolled 18 = 18>>19374287all of them
>>19374296Remember to stick together though.
>>19374296>>19374284Your exploration efforts are made a lot harder by the fact, that no one of you is scientifically minded enough to grasp the meaning of this language that seems to have been used by those who built this place. However after some time you manage to find the Beacon of Faith in the highest spire of the temple. It is a strange device, surrounded by cogitators from all sides and made from a very light, yet resilient metal. You were given a small nuclear reactor, that you were suppossed to install here to support it's light. But now when you approached it, it seems as if this engine has nothing to do with radiating light, especially now, when it's under a hundred or so meters of snow. What a shame, that you have no Techmarine with you... However attaching power generator would be quite simple, would you like to do it, even if you don't know what it does? If yes, roll d100.
>>19374478http://cbe005.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.netyou can join us here for discussions.
rolled 100 = 100>>19374466oh i read it as attacking, roll for attach
>>19374466Attach the power generator, we didnt come all this way for a sight seeing trip, losing a brother (maybe 2) in the process.
>>19374466Nope, here's what we are going to do:First, we finish the ritual and return to the city.Then, once it's all over, we can return here in a thunderhawk with a techmarine.
rolled 35 = 35>>19374466PFFFT, rolling to not blow us up.
rolled 92 = 92>>19374495
>>19374495okay.jpgAs you plug in the power generator, everything falls silent for a moment and all of your inner systems in power armour turn off. As your brothers look at each other without understanding what is happening, you notice that all cogitators show a strong surge of power being released. Corrupt data files are jumping on computer screen, some of them in Gothic and others in some unknown runes, when suddenly everything stops and your systems power back on. Signal was sent.
>>19374669i utterly confused
>>19374669That's it for tonight. Sweet dreams and please archive this,
