Fuck! I cant play right now. Make it an awesome session guys, I cant wait to get back and read it on the archives.Bump for good quest
>>19491451http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtGqDsRbs8o&feature=relatedIn the grim darkness of the 41st millenium there is only war. Imperium of Man, once strong and proud, now is slowly crumbling, whole regions of space are lost to the horrors that lurk in the darkness of the void. Sector Deus is just one of thousands of Imperial provinces that form the frontline in the war to defend Humanity itself. Corruption from within and aggression from without threaten it. But Emperor sends us hope. High Lords of Terra commisioned a Chapter of Adeptus Astartes to defend this region of space. They are the last line of defence that hold Age of Ruin at bay. They are the Ghosts of Retribution.Last session:We learned how to wield powers of the warp and managed to trick our xeno captors into playing a game of regicide, a game Chapter Master knew nothing about beforehand, and won our freedom using legendary space marine 'strategic girth'. However Eldar revealed us a glimpse of dark future that awaits us, it seems that something of apocalyptic proportions will happen to our home in 325.M41 and Chapter Master was supposed to died there. We left Eldar immediatelly, but unfortunately they let Chapter Master out 100 meters above the planets surface with no means to make landing easier and you slammed into the ground with all the fury gravitation can muster. Fortunatelly, your augmented survival instincts kicked in and you slowly drifted away into regenerative coma...pic. your crater
>>19491495no worries, I couldn't sleep tonigt, so I feel tired and expect this session to be short, I am doing it just because I promised a conclusion for action on this planet.You current health: 18%You have Wrath of Corax, relic power sword, broken power armour, 4 magazines of bolts, crushed bolter and intact boltpistol.Roll d100 for regeneration
>>19491500This is unupdated info from the last time you had contact with your Chapter. Remember, that the longer it will take you to get back in touch with them, the more things might change...
rolled 25 = 25roll for regen, try to radio our bros
>>19491500"Strategic girth"?What the fuck happened?
Nice. I found this quest hilarious yesterday.Fucking Eldar though. Who throws people out of planes without a parachute?
>>19491592Eldar. And dicks.
>>19491558The darkness and pain are slowly receding... You realise that you must be awakening from your regenerative coma. You are still blind, Emperor knows how much time you had to spend healing your fractured skeleton, but you *feel* the light playing on your optical nerves and you know that in a few minutes you will regain your senses fully. You move a little bit. Some of the bones in your body still hurt, but you feel no serious traumas. You also feel that you have no power armour, it means that someone/something took it off. You also feel that you are covered with something warm, probably a blanket or pelt... Do you react anyhow to this state of affairs?
>>19491617"who is there?"in the lowest of low gothic, peasants be damned
>>19491617Well, if they havnt killed us it cant be too bad. Get ready to get up and kill if necessary though, one never knows.Also seconding this:>>19491626
>>19491582this >>19490494 happened
>>19491592Prophecy must have told them to do so.also as always I suggest putting on some epic music while playing this quest. here's to what I listen right now http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqLHgodkIPk>>19491626"Krepus! He's awake! At last! Quick, bring here feathers and ink, we must document this. Don't worry, skyman, you are in good hands, How do you feel?"Your vision slowly comes back and you see your caretakers... By the Emperor, the mug you see in front of you is not just ugly, it's an abomination against the Sacred Human Form. Covered in red burn-like marks, with no nose, almost reptilian in appearance, with just three fingers on each hand, it is clearly a mutant or a very human-like intelligent xeno.
>>19491680Silently curse our luck. First Aliens, then mutants. O well, since we are a psyker now, we will fit nicely with them...Ask were we are and how long we have been out.
>>19491680puke of course, and then thank them, while having mental note to get them purged later or we can donate them to the admech"blargrghh, bleghh, ah pardon, almost-human, your peculiar appearance best my rational judgementwhere is this place? how do you remove my armor? it needs special...qualifications for safe removal"
>>19491680"Well, skyman, let me introduce myself. I am Sorel, alchemist, wizard and doctor, serving in slavery of Lord Kajus, ruler of Arrokan and this half-witted creature is Kreptus, my slave-student. We took care of you for the last 4 months, since patrols on the Khesian border found you, most of the people were disgusted by your form and arcane armour, so they wished to see you burn, but I used my magic to detect that you are in fact alive! No one believed me, but Lord Kajus allowed me to keep you here for research purposes. Skyman, you cannot even begin to understand how glad I am to see you before me, speaking in the same language as I do! This only proves that the legends are true and salvation is at hand! When is the Emperor coming?"
>>19491738"Never. He died long ago.HAIL SLAANESH!"
>>19491697>>19491719"Your armour is right here, skyman. I couldn't repair it, we have long since lost the art of machine magic, except for those little scraps like my test tubes and spirits of electricity, but I polished it and removed all the dirt. Your weapons(i assume them to be such) made no sense to us, except for the sword, but it is too heavy for any of us to use, so we didn't touch it."
>>19491738Not anytime soon my friend for he is no longer walks with us.But fear not, your salvation indeed close. As soon as i can talk with my brothers, we will bring Emperors light to this planet. So now, tell me, where is my sacred armour?
>>19491738>>19491770"an honor to have fellow imperial citizen here, emperor will come soon, he is preocuppied in another front for millenia now, tell me, where can i access interstellar communication system? have any leads?"wear the armor while talking
>>19491777You inspect your armour, it unfortunatelly still is broken beyond the point of repair(without proper tools). Your health is at 75% atm.Meanwhile Sorel continues to buzz into your ear with excitement. It seems that you landed on a border between two kingdoms - Arrakan and Khesia, that are at war currently. Arrakan is a meritocracy-based slaver state, where everyone ows everyone, with only a very small elite having the official freedom. Technology on this planet seems to be almost medieval, except for heavy use of toxic materials and electricity for various purposes(but mostly as weapons). It seems that there is one small wizard-run republic in the North, called Albion, where you can get 'magical' items that by their descrptions seem to be of Imperial technological level...
>>19491798>>19491777You can wear armour, but when it is unpowered it will slow you down considerably, running/climbing/dodging will be out of the question.And what do you say about the Emperor? is he alive or not? decide
rolled 20 = 20>>19491751This probably would turn out to be hillarious. Let me roll on thing for the future.
>>19491851i say his time of resurrection is near, THROUGH ME
>>19491851He is alive, but currently not in the realms of mortals. He is in the long sleep, protecting his Empire with his dreams and his very own soul.
>>19491890>>19491891"So... The Emperor... died? How? How could this have happened? And he sleeps in his death? And he will resurrect through YOU? Oh my... why did I threw out all those rags that I used to clean your sweat and blood? Just don't tell anyone this, because I fear for your safety, my friend. For most of the people here Emperor is the only hope, especially after the Crash. Well now, I guess Lord Kajus will want to meet you. I've ordered to make some robes specifically for your size. I hope you will like them. Do you need anything else or maybe you have any further questions before we go?"
Oh shit I'm late!
>>19491934"its okay alchemist, bring me to him"decided not to wear the armor tho if it only low us down, bring the wrath of corax guys? or not? i vote bring our sword
>>19491934Not citizen, he isnt dead. Its complicated. Just know this. We are his will. Adeptus Astertes is his will. Now, before we go, do you have anything, cloth or weaponwise, that i can use since my own armour seems to be damaged. Also a weapon, if you have one.
>>19491962>>19491966Bring the Wrath of Corax and make sure to wield our strategic girth at all times.
>>19491966*no citizen.*i derped there.>>19491975wtf is that strategic girth you guys talk about?
>>19491984Strategic Girth is how we bested the xenos scum at Regicide.
>>19491984we use it in hot and sticky situation, usually butt naked
For those new to this, we discuss in thread before deciding what happens next, so as to not confuse things and cut down on lots of conflicting actions at once
>>19491990and that stategic girth actually is?
>>19492003Our throbbing hard Astartes member.
>>19492010We are going slaanesh arent we?And i was just trying to put my loyalist act up...
>>19492020We aren't going to Slaanesh, we just happened to be naked during The Most Dangerous Game.
>>19492020no we are not, we just use what advantage we had at any given moment"know your enemies and yourself, you will be undefeated forever" - Sun T'zhu, Farseer of Wuxide Craftworld
>>19491946You haven't missed anything important.>>19491966>>19491962>>19491975Equiped with Wrath of Corax and your strategic girth, you prepare to meet Lord Kajus. Sorel is really puzzled about the whole Emperor thing, but for now it seems he is keeping his thoughts to himself. As you enter the main hall of the palace, you notice that everything is decorated in crude Imperial symbolism, mostly Aquilas and incorrectly written High Gothic proverbs. You are intercepted near the Lord's chamber by his guard, who wear chainmails and are armed with halbeards that seem to have some kind of electroshock device installed in them. They take away Wrath of Corax, but they do it with a fear and respect in their eyes. When at last you enter the chambers, Kajus himself meets you, he is no less disfigured than Sorel, but he seems to wear some kind of uniform that bears strong imperial guard officer motives."Welcome, skyman. I am Lord Kajus, ruler of Arrokan, Silesia, Mostar and Tamerian Lowlands, Protector of Astezian mountains and Grand Slavemaster of Arrokan people. What brings you to Hades?"
>>19492053"mostly bad luck and warp storm, Lord Kajus, nice to meet you, my name is *a bird chirping* and my sons called me The Don"i vote to ask if we have warp relay comm-link, so we can contact our bros
>>19492053"We come as the hand of The Emperor of Mankind. I wish to know the history of your world, and I seek the technology to repair my equipment and reach my Brothers."
>>19492053Fate and War Lord Kajus. You look like an imperial. Tell me Kajus, telll me of this worlds and its inhibitans.
>>19492068As you continue to speak with Kajus, you realise that they don't know what is warp or warp travel. Their knowledge of space travel is limited to the "lightning horses of the Emperor" that look like falling stars when they travel. In fact they are waiting for him to come on one and expect you to be an omen, a sign that the Emperor's coming is near.
>>19492068I think the Strategic Girth has gone to your head
>>19492085then i seconded shark and faceless
>>19492106I third myself. If you know what I mean.
fellow players, i propose we go to the albion magician and use their crystal twin brass balls to call our comradesafter the chit chat finished ofc
>>19492127I concur. OR we could free all the slaves and set this planet up to be a nice place to live, THEN go steal all the magic for ourselves.
>>19492136>>19492145mkay, so we know where we should go later, for now, lets hope that the dice god is with us and DM is not in mischiveous mood
>>19492082>>19492073He tells you, that this is Hades and they are aware that this is not the only planet that is inhabited and that in the stars there is Imperium, thousands of worlds like theirs. However people there don't fight each other, because the Emperor rules them, they always have plenty to eat, they don't have to work and women are free and willing. Also, the Emperor used his magic on the people of Imperium, so that they don't feel pain, fear and are constantly happy. To put it bluntly, it is a true paradise and they have no greater wish as to join Imperium. There are three main kingdoms on hades:Arrokan - slavemaster state, but but this is not so harsh as it sounds, it is very similar to most feudal type societiesKhesia - a land of people who eat babies, want to take Arrokan freedoms to own slaves and be owned by someone, etc. They are at war with Arrokan over resources and they are ruled by priests, who worship the Emperor, but in a very terrible way - they think that the Emperor will never come and we must reach him ourselves and that it's priests who should rule the people in order to do this.Finnaly there is Albion, a mystical wizard republic where every scholar wants to be allowed to come, it's located in the northern mountains and supplies both sides with higher-level technology. No one knows from where they get it, it is assumed that they make these themselves.Also there seems to be a certain zone called "Fields of blood", where half a millenia ago Crash happened. A sky horse fell there and lots of terrible beasts poured out of it. They aren't very smart, but they are very strong and migrate in packs around that area, so everyone tries to stay out of it.
>>19492169wow he best be trolling, chaos infested spaceship sounds fun, but we decided to go to albion "magician of albion...are they wearing oversize hoodies and replaced by machine for most of their body parts?"
>>19492169sorry for terrible grammar, but as I mentioned I feel quite tired today despite the inspiration to play
>>19492169We get this information from Kajur right. Lets not immidiately trust him, not until we see things with our own eyes. Also, tell him that Emperors warriors will soon come for this planet, but first we must talk to them.
>>19492187Kajus seems to be disturbed by the though."I've met them twice, when buying especially sensitive war materials, I can assure that they indeed look quite mysterious, but I've never imagined a man, even one of them, to be "part machine". So, skyman, are you good at fighting?"
>>19492191its not the grammar broseph, im saying if this lord trollin or not>He tells you, that this is Hades and they are aware that this is not the only planet that is inhabited and that in the stars there is Imperium, thousands of worlds like theirs. However people there don't fight each other, because the Emperor rules them, they always have plenty to eat, they don't have to work and women are free and willing. Also, the Emperor used his magic on the people of Imperium, so that they don't feel pain, fear and are constantly happy. To put it bluntly, it is a true paradise and they have no greater wish as to join Imperium. mah sides///
>>19492215"I was made for war."
>>19492215"how good is good?"
alright gentlemen, since our beloved DM throw us a curve ball, field first or albion first?
>>19492248field than albion. We need some influence over these people nad this seems a quick way.
>>19492248Albion, we need to get our shit repaired before we can handle any kind of threat.
>>19492222Skills upgraded:+1 Charisma+1 LeaderKajus seems to be surprised and happy about your answer."Then you will help us to defeat those Khesian heretics before the Emperor arrives, right? We want to make Hades to look like Imperial world as much as possible before he comes..."
>>19492265We didn't come here to get involved in their petty war, but we might be able to get some good recruits from this planet, or steal all their good shit.
>>19492265Then follow me, and together, we will remake this world a better place.
>>19492265aw nigga ploot hook
>>19492279>>19492277>>19492286This is an option for you to engage into an extended action:[War on Hades], but you need to decide on several things do you try to join under Kajus' command, or you try to overthrow him first, do you want to fight as a frontline soldier or as a general, etc. This course of action will not end in a day or two, bear in mind.
>>19492333We will fight as a general. And Kajus will obey us for we are the Emperors will.
>>19492333We are a chapter master, we will give them battle plans and lines to hold, and then we will go to the front to kick the ever-loving shit out of these mortals
>>19492348Roll to persuade. d100, you need to roll below 24.
rolled 79 = 79>>19492365rollan.
>>19492333hmm, i hope such an extended period of missing in action wont made our chapter much worse state"stand in front of me, i will not follow, stand behind me i will not lead, stay beside me, and we shall overcome any and all obstacles"if he ask we will fight them or not i say we say "winning thousands of battles is not the acme of skill, winning the war without bloodshed is"
>>19492372Oh. Someone else is the look out now! YAY!
rolled 85 = 85>>19492365roll
rolled 47 = 47>>19492381Ooops.
>>19492379THIS 1000 TIMES THIS
rolled 40 = 40>>19492388>>19492386>>19492372trying for last roll.
>>19492382Yeah, I brought my bad rolls today.Looks like everyone else is also fail, though, so I don't feel too bad.
>>19492372Kajus has no intention to give up his position just because someone fell from the sky, he politely refuses, stating that until you provide concrete evidence that you were sent by the Emperor, he will not give up his position as the ruler of Arrokania. However you are welcome to fight at his side. Do you agree, agree but try to overthrow him or you quit the whole war bussiness?
rolled 46 = 46>>19492404MFW when best rolls are mine. And we still fail.
>>19492408>hmm, i hope such an extended period of missing in action wont made our chapter much worse state>"stand in front of me, i will not follow, stand behind me i will not lead, stay beside me, and we shall overcome any and all obstacles">if he ask we will fight them or not i say we say "winning thousands of battles is not the acme of skill, winning the war without bloodshed is"Also something to do with strategic girth that I can't think of
>>19492408>>19492421I say we overthrow him. It is below us to take a step back at this point.
>>19492408excellent, a chance to prove ourselves? Let's go and clear out the field of blood (crash) as our proof
>>19492429>>19492428>>194924211. Fight as champion for Arrokania(side by side)2. Overthrow Kajus3. Promise to clear out Crash zone4. Something else?vote
>>194924561 and 3 simultaneously
>>19492427>>19492428>>19492429or"prove? i have the gene of the emperor with me"slowly undo the robes"if you want prove"undo the pants"this is it"*pelvic thrust*pelvic thrust*pelvic thrust*pelvic thrust*pelvic thrust*pelvic thrustsage because of nsfw
>>19492477STRATEGIC GIRTH, HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>19492463you have my girth
>>19492477>>19492483>>19492489I think we are going to recieve a mark from slaanesh soon.
>>19492456just to clarify DM, this one>>19492477 is not canon
>>19492477Kajus gasps at the sight of your strategical girth, but quickly grabs himself by the balls and continues without a sign of emotion."I am not sure our warriors will understand it the same way, you do, skyman... I don't know what are the customs in Imperium, but I want you to leave my palace immediately."What do you do next?
>>19492530Since we damned. Why not go all way. Its not your palace anymore.Grab him and tear him apart. Basically overthrow.
>>19492523it seems it is now.
>>19492557my sides. the warp
>>19492549let's go investigate the crash site first, then if we find some good shit, turn his palace into rubble
>>19492549everyone ok with this? if yes, roll d100
>>19492560I dont who to be angry at. Skargan or Berserker...
>>19492549fucking rip and tear then, i promise i will NOT post such thing again, god my sides
rolled 26 = 26>>19492573Well, you have my roll.
>>19492573Noo, please not.More of something like >>19492568
>>19492583Lower was better right?
>>19492602Its my luck night than.
>>19492580damn, now it's my turn to roll around laughing>>19492583>>19492584yes, lower is better, but we have a tie now:Shark, Monosynaptic - peacefulBerserk, Faceless - agrresivesomeone please change your mind
OK GUYSWe need to discuss and all agree on a course of action before we do anything in future. I feel the application of our strategic girth in that situation was not the wisest of moves.
>>19492629fuck my lifeoh and Skargan, if i change my mind, is it retconned? the naked bit?
>>19492629But its done. I say lets not waste that roll and go with it. I mean we have to kill him now, we cant let Kajus live, so at least we should try to overthrow him.
I say the wiser course of action is to bide our time, scout out the land, go to the crash site and find something to nuke him from orbit, or join up with his enemies and fuck him up that way
>>19492629sorry about that, but I couln't resist. Berserk just wanted to make a joke. I hope. >>19492639On the eldar ship? No, you were naked. Space marines know no shame. Or fear, whatever. And Eldar don't really care about mon'keigh, unless you can make love bloom they consider you just as ugly in armour or without.
>>19492641>We can't let Kajus live, he's seen our strategic girthoh, my sides, you'll kill me with this logic
>>19492661nonono the one with this lord whathis name
>>19492656And let him live knowing, dude, we cant just let someone survive after showed our astartes size to him. We shouldnt let any loose ends.
>>19492675kajus! can we retconned kajus seeing our girth?
>>19492682>loose ends.WELP. LET'S MAKE HIM ROLL FOR ANAL CIRCUMFERENCE. I VOTE RIP AND TEAR.
>>19492673Well, i mean we cant let someone who witnessed a space marine showing his junk and going slaaneshi, dishonouring himself.No witnesses.
>>19492661Time for laughing is over. That just happened. Maybe warp madness is slowly creeping on you or this unknown toxic atmosphere. You are out in the street near Kajus palace. What do?
>>19492702Rip and tear. Leave no witnesses.
Since we're out on the street, let's not rip and tear. We're the good guys, remember. We need to make our way to the crash site, if we know where that is. If not, we ask and find out, then go.
>>19492702>>19492702rip and tear, you have my axe, oh and faceless rolled 26 rite?
>>19492702Try to gather more information about this field of blood. If they're as scared of it as it seems, we can definitely prove ourselves out there.
>>19492733Yep, but when did we leave the palace?
>>19492741>>19492734>>19492733>>19492722>>19492707tie again. just roll-off for Crash site and overthrow, if overthrow we'll go with 26 roll
>>19492756Well my vote is for overthrow, i mean, we cant leave witnesses of our shamefull display.
>>19492722>>19492707>>19492733seems like status quo again....third option : we stealth our way to the palace and show Kajus who's boss or we go to albion
>>19492741You were too dumbfounded to resist, they just led you out. If you will decide to rip and tear, wooden castle gates will not stop you, don't worry.Also if you will do 'overthrow' course of action, please specify what you preach to the population, how you try to win their sympathies, etc. the more details, the better.
rolled 52 = 52rolling for crash site
rolled 7 = 7>>19492756Roll for crash site investigation.
>>19492762>>19492761Faceless, roll d100, Shark roll d100, whoever wins, we'll follow his way. this roll has no influence ingame
>>19492779wow i guess we investigate...our shamefur dispray will have to wait for vengeance perhaps Faceless?
>>19492767We tell them that we are their salvation, and we will lead them to paradise if they are brave enough to earn it. Every person bows down before us will earn his place in the side of the Emperor at the other side. THe ones that live, they get to create their own future with their own hands.That is if we choose to overthrow...And i wont roll since i am the minority. So will be okay with what you guys choose.>>19492784Sure i can wait.
>>19492779>>19492784>>19492773You decide to leave for the Blood Fields and investigating what exactly crashed there... The journey is long and you have only that, what you had on your back. Roll d100

>>19492806Day and night you run through the deserts and stony fields of Hades towards your destination. Even your super-human organism is exhausted, but it takes you less than a month to reach the border of "Blood Fields". It is marked by skulls on spikes scattered bones... From here on you decide to proceed in a more careful fashion. The next day passes calmly, but when the evening comes you notice a campfire under the rain of stars in the horizon. As you approach, you realize that the 'rocks' surrounding the campfire in fact are beasts... and not just any beasts, but Ogryns! What do you do? You are crouched among the stones, stealth mode, you left your broken armour at your own campsite about a mile back. You have your weapons with you.
>>19492868F5ing is the manliest way.
brothers, i said we made our best emperor impression and get this ogryn army to unify the 3 kingdoms! what say you?
>>19492868ooh whats that? let me google it
Approach peacefully, they should love the emperor, and love us as his servant. Be prepared to bust many caps, however.

>>19493008I think we get to be a slaaneshi demon prince now, complete with super strategic girth
>>19493045Shhhh. Maybe he won't notice when he gets back...
>>19493056>>19493061>>19493040Well, i say Khorne, raping and killing. But again i hope Skrgan lets me use that 6 for convincing orgyrns that we are some short of personification of the Emperor.
>>19492980shit, i will try to salvage this trainwreck, we wait until dawn and back to themwhen the sun is behind us, we stand on a quite high stone, raise our sword so we have the illusion for emperor sword"MEN OF IMPERIUM! MY BELOVED SON! too long i have left you alone in this barren world, but fear no more, as I have come to lead you once again, for our crusade! OUR FUTURE! WHAT SAY YOU, HOLY BEASTS OF THE WASTE?"
>>19493084i role play his 6 rolls>>19493086is that acceptable?
>>19493103IT BETTER BE
>>19493103>>19493117Our face when Skargan turns us into a Daemon Prince fo Slaanesh.
I miss 3 hours of a session and this happens!!!!
>>19493154my legendary unluckiness at crucial moment seems to has no bound
>>19493186So it seems....But seriously though, screw the Ogryn's, and screw this planet, we should be trying to find a way to regain contact the chapter and get home.
>>19493223one last try for the ogryn, then we go to albion and bail bail bail
Is there any possibility for us to also control brethorius while the don is stuck on this rock, so that we know whats happening with the rest of the chapter?Or even just an update or 2 on what they are trying to do, even if we have no say over what has been happening.
>>19493243Yeah, ideally we can get the tech to contact the chapter from them, but I'd like to have some backup going anywhere. So, of course, Ogryn.
Question:What are the chapter colours and emblem?
our color is greyish white with black highlight, emblem is undecided
>>19493401Okay thanks.What is our parent chapter? We could use some kind of variation of their emblem for ours....
Raven Guard, hence our name and tactics of maneuvering and surgical strike
>>19493438more like surgical thrust
>>19493454emperor be damned!
>>19493438Ah of course...."The Wrath of Corax"....So for the emblem....some kind of wing?The shoulder pads are black, so what about a white, sideways wing?
>>19493463that could work, can we put skull with schyte? seems ghst-eyor we can jusg put ghostbuster logo and change the chubby ghost into an ork
>>19493504ghostbuster logo I mean
>>19493501A skull with a scythe intersecting diagonally sounds good.As for the ghostbusters symbol, though it sounds great, I think I'd have quite a hard time trying to paint it.....
>>19493527just a suggestion, btw the GM will come in 10 mindiagonal warschyte and sideways wing sold me there
>>19493590me too.did anything happen what I should read after my post about Ogryns?If not - what do you do?
>>19493698this is the action>>19493008this is the roll
>>19493698we do this:>>19493086
please roll 30+2d10, this is Chapter Master's willpower from now on.
rolled 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 2 = 41>>19493752EMPEROR PROTECTS
rolled 8, 7 + 30 = 45>>19493783what the bunch of 1s and wrong dice, reroll
rolled 7, 8 + 30 = 45>>19493752rolling.Also, using my 1337 MS paint skillz, here's the emblem.
must... resist... temptation...roll d2 someone.1 - i go with >>194930862 - i go with>>19493008roll will remain the same - 6
rolled 1 = 1>>19493822FUCK
rolled 1, 1 = 2>>19493822holy hell
>>19493834Phew. Close one.
>>19493834YOU, I WANT YOUR COCK MY SAVIOUR
>>19493813Guys what do you think about the emblem?
>>19493887it's cool bro
>>19493834>>19493086"Emprah? Krusade? Hurr, are you from pretty pictures?"Ogryns seem to have stopped at the sight of your activated power-sword, that you drew to make a bigger impression - they point at it's sparkling power field, it must remind them something...
>>19493887its coll brah, i will polish it in PS
ok guys, what should we do now?
>>19493896>>19493903Okay cheers.I'm considering using this guy to make a model of our Chapter Master, I think the sword makes a good 'Wrath of Corax'. Might get round to it in a couple of weeks, thoughts?
>>19493900Ogryns seem to have stopped at the sight of your activated power-sword, that you drew to make a bigger impression - they point at it's sparkling power field, it must remind them something...Looks like they were impressed with a bigger impression.You know what to do.
>>19493930s' okay man, good arts always come in hoursoh if you can modify the hair like The Don from Godfather that would be cool
>>19493946IS IT GIRTH TIME?
hell no i wont use the pelvic thrust again
Clearly we should tell them we are, that we've come to lead them, et cetera, then steal all their shit and lead them to battle against the asshole who offended our girth whilst we wait for our brothers to return, whom we've hopefully contacted using the Ogryn's tech - or we go to Albion to get some delicious tech if they have none
>>19493981"I AM MANY THINGS, MY SON *put the sword a bit down, mess hair so its like emperor hairstyle* I HAVE COME TO LEAD YO ON THE PATH OF SALVATION! FOR MANKIND! FOR TERRA! HEAR MY WORDS AND FOLLOW!"
>>19493930wow, an awesome idea... probably I would need to introduce fatepoints or some other stuff to reward you for such an amazing initiative,,,>>19493981You manage to concince the Ogryns that you were sent by the Emperor to save them, it seems that almost everyone on this world is just waiting for him to open the clouds and come down at any minute. Getting Ogryns to talk is a slow and tedious task, but after a few weeks of hunting together with, preaching about the Emperor and getting to know their customs, they seem to start really trust you. There's not much they can tell you, Ogryns are bad with legends, but it seems, that they are the 'beasts' mutants spoke about, they were being transported across the space, but the was the Big Bang, as they call it, and they crashlanded on Hades. The 'little Emperor's men' died out in a matter of few years because of toxic atmosphere and lack of proper equipment, but Ogryns adapted and claimed this area as their own. From time to time tribes make pilgrimages towards the ship. They are afraid to go inside, because it's dark and narrow in there, but they like to look at gigantic stained steel-glass windowsand statues on the ship, that's how they keep their memory of the Emperor.What do you do? If you want to go into the ship, Ogryns will not go with you.
>>19494013"U no big as Emprah, u his sun." Ogryns point at the stained glass windows - Emperor that is depicted there is 15 meters tall, so you can hardly match him, but you fit right the size of space marines standing around him... Ofcourse, you can try explaining Ogryns the difference between reality and representation, it should take you less then a decade.
>>19494073>>19494129I think we should inspect the ship, could be some useful tech on there, maybe a way to contact the chapter.
rolled 44 = 44>>19494157Rolling for ship-looking.
>>19494150also tyranids and abominations, but yes, it worth the risk
>>19494157and roll 30+2d10 for your intelligence(i am slowly reforming character system into modified DH)
rolled 23 = 23>>19494165Rolling for ship exploran
rolled 2, 7 + 30 = 39>>19494173I don't know if I should be rolling for these today.
rolled 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2 = 38>>19494173Rollan for Inttel..Intelg...Smartness!
rolled 2, 6 + 30 = 38>>19494173rolling for intelligence.
rolled 4, 7 + 30 = 41>>19494190uh whoops!
I show up like 45 minutes late for the game, and this is what I walk into... For shame you guys.
>>19494211dude this session's been going on for 4 and a half hours.
Alright so... First order of business... I suggest we try to convince these guys our way is the right way, say screw all this mucking about in the "Fields of Blood" or whatever, and just go straight to the "techwizards". We don't really have time to play "Planetary War" we have more important things, like getting the hell off this rock, and dealing with this threat the Eldar told us about.
>>19494182Int 39Will 45Well, it seems you are a proper Space Marine, your balls are bigger than your brain.>>19494165As you enter the depths of ancient shipwreck, you soon realise, that some of it's systems are in a lot better condition than you thought they would be. Very soon you managed to reach that what is left from the ship bridge and to your joy you identify one of the cogitators as a controller for interstellar communications array... However the ship has no power, so it's useless to you at the moment.You can:1. Try to activate ship reactors after 5 centuries off sleep, as you have no Tech skills or lores, you would need to roll below 9 to do this. 2. Try to use your broken power core from power armour. it might backfire(30/70 not in your favour).3. Find alternative power sourcePic: This ship must have looked like this
>>19494232We usually start around 1:30pm my time. It doesn't really matter, all I see is a big clusterfuck, which is hilarious by the way, but we should get moving.
>>19494266Well, unless trying to re-activate them would break them, I suggest we roll to re-activate.If it CAN break shit, it's time we roll to find a new power source.
>>19494245Well, you wasting precious time in pointless mortal wars might boost your ego(it helped Primarchs, afterall) and a planet were you are considered leader always helps, also it's a lot easier to claim as your domain. If you aren't on the other side of the galaxy, that is. And if you need a planet that is divided between savage mutants and savage ogryns.
>>19494266Well, we know the tech wizards have some pretty high tech levels. Either they'll have some kind of communication devise (Unlikely given the state of the planet) or, we can see if they'll power the ship for us.
rolled 99 = 99>>19494266Who needs knowladge when you have faith?Start dat shit
>>19494266I say we attempt to power up the systems, if that fails, we try to find an alternate power source, we certainly don't wanna risk blowing up the ship..
>>19494299naturally, old power reactors CAN make some serious shit on critical failure, but there is a lot greater chance that simply nothing will happen. Nuclear explosion chance is only on 99.
>>19494305Sadly, this planet is...Pretty much useless to us. We can't recruit from here because the place is ravaged by mutation. There doesn't seem to be any form of useful resource here, so again, that's out. The only thing of value I can see is the Ogrynes, but most imperial guard regiments don't normally use abhumans. I think we'll just have to bomb this place from orbit. Again, I vote for getting in touch with the tech wizards.
>>19494312>>19494326WELP! Good game...
>>19494342Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
Exactly this sort of stuff happens when you don't woreship TzeentchGreat job guys
>>19494312And this is why we should talk things over before committing to anything. ffs lol.
Well isn't just absolutely fucking marvellous.......I believe that's why we agreed to discuss shit before making decisions/rolling......
>>19494326Don't you mean a 100? because if 1 is a crit success, 100 would be a crit fail.
>>19494385>>19494382Im sure we would have agreed to give it a shot, only 2% chance of failure, why not roll to see?
Ok guys. Just one question - was that anon one of ours or random guest?
>>19494400I'm a random guest, but I'm not him.
>>19494400It was me. I usually follow the Chapter Quest threads, only decided to contribute to them today.Sorry.
>>19494395No, I'm sure we wouldn't have. If you would have waited before rolling, we could have found out for sure.
>>19494299>>19494308To be fair.....if we're just gonna go on whoever decided to make a choice/roll first, then these two should count.
>>19494367huh, i think it mean that the reactor implode, tyranids and orks invade, some necrons on the planet wake up, ogryns start growing brains and the things the vasari are fleeing from come too.
>>19494417You did fine by me. Makes things interesting.Seems we have several people who rarely post but lurk away in the thread.
>>19494367huh, i think it mean that the reactor implode, tyranids and orks invade, some necrons on the planet wake up, ogryns start growing brains and the things the vasari are fleeing from come too ?
I GO AWAY FOR 10 MINUTES AND THIS HAPPENS.Clearly you don't want me to write my skaven list.Guys, this is why we vote on things before doing them, or at least discuss them.
>>19494462When did discuss had ever prevented bad dices ?
>>19494481Discussion has prevented the roll of dice.
>>19494417It is kind of a big deal, but I speak from gaming, not social interaction. It's cool you want to finally jump in lol. You unfortunately did it in the worst possible way. No insult to you of course, we can't predict the dice after all.
>>19494481for one, if it botches, and we take a safer action, it wont be this much problkem dont you think? i am the example of bad decision
>>19494481It stops bad decisions :/In these threads normally the dice don't go in our favour anyway. We can hope The Girth saves us I guess
After days of hard work in the shadow of the ship you finally managed to restore all the power cables and inner mechanisms. This is it, the moment of truth. You are a little bit nervous. "Who needs knowladge when you have faith?" The joke makes you smile a little bit. You take a deep breath and click the button....Nothing seems to happen.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwlNPhn64TA&feature=related
>>19494501Can we have an invulnerable save?
>>19494501Well that's fortunate...
>>19494515I'm sure the Omnissiah shielded us from the blast!Right?Right?...DM?
>>19494509Doubtful since we're not in our power armour. But it looks like nothing happened.
>>19494501What happens if we pray to the dark Gods in that split second before we are atmoized?
>>19494515watch the video.....Well that's just great....so we can assume the chapters gonna be destroyed in 8 years then? Seeing as the only one who new about the cataclysm is now radioactive dust.....
>>19494501That went well.
>>19494525>But it looks like nothing happened.He posted a Tsar bomba explosion video.
>>19494530And then I watched the video...
Welp, chapter master strategic girth waver is dead, long live chapter master Brethorius?
So....Reroll new character?
>>19494501You were too close to feel any pain, only slight tingling heat, that spread throughout your body, making you light as a feather and making butterflies in your belly. It was... nice. Then your body was dissintegrated into atoms, not leaving a single dust from which your genetical legacy could be rebuilt, not leaving a single item that would bear your memory.On 145.317.M41, Chapter Master died on Hades.Just one more name in Book of the Glorious Dead.The End.
>>19494553Hey, my dice roll killed the Chapter Master, so I'm the new Chapter Master!That's how it works, right?
>>19494553My love is only for The Girth.
>>19494564Can't we have a girth save?
Just occurred to me, the Girth is basically our "hyper-weapon". The Don is also Rance
>>19494579Wait, so the quest is over now?Oh Omnissiah I'm so sorry
>>19494564...or is it? roll d4
rolled 24 = 24>>19494575If I roll a 1 here, he must survive.
rolled 88 = 88You know what it's for...
rolled 2 = 2>>19494596fuuuuuuuuuuuuu
rolled 4 = 4>>19494596
>>19494609>>19494610LUCK, WE HAVE OBTAINED IT.
Nobody even knows the tale of The Girth. The legend dies here.
>>19494627WHAT HAVE I DONE??
>if you want to influence the galaxy and move setting progression past 999.M41 - join us!We didnt even make it past 145.317.M41, let alone 999
i left this thread to draw our beloved DOn and he died? wut?
Well, can I role for Tzeench to have claimed us for his plots instead of us being destroyed by the explosion?
LONG LIVE GIRTH!FOREVER MAY HIS MEMORY SEAR OUR HEARTS!
>>19494609Y'all being too hasty.....Let's see what my roll did first....
What if, by some miracle of the emperor, our atoms are reassambled, and we transend marines?
>>19494699My vote. Yes. Or Slaanesh.
>>19494731Sorry, we're not the living saints of Adepta Sororitas.Nor are we the chosen of Khorne.
i have faith in emperor and mankind, i vote for our chapter to stand like a tree beside the river of truth
Guys guys, what if, right, what if, the ELDAR, right, them ELDAR bitches, were to like, right got this? were to magic us back in some timewarp, because they know we are the only ones who can stop the leviathon?Complete sidestory with death-amnessia
I vote we rename chapter 'The Girths of Redemption'
>>19494800Girths Ghosts would be better, in honour of Girths Ghost.
You find yourself standing in the middle of a tunnel. There is light in one end and darkness in the other. You feel, that you don't belong here. You feel that you need to choose. The light side promises you end of suffering and peace for which oyu crave so much. You think you can see your comrades there. Teiron, smiling with his innocent, almost childish face. Ectus, with his arms crossed on his chest, brass knuckles at the ready. Pacinos, waving for you to come closer. Pristarion, Dormius, Priam and many others, whom you have seen to fall before your very eyes...But darkness also whispers behind you. You know that it is the voice of your fear, your ambition, your ego. It says, that it's not yet the time. There still are much things to do. Not now. Not like this. Dark tentacles of doubt try to drag you there. You know that you should fight them, but some part of you doesn't want to...So what it will be, Light or Darkness?
A bit metagamey though, as the rest of the chapter doesn't even know about The Girth, or that its wielder perished on a backwater world.
>>19494811Darkness. I would rather be Dark than dead.
>>19494825For CHAOS don't you mean?
>>19494825Somehow, I don't think you understand how this works.
>>19494811We cannot go to the darkness.But we cannot give up to death so easily, not when the information we hold his paramount to the survival of the chapter.Stalemate.I vote, we stay, we don't move.Fuck fate, we don't have to bow to the whims of the warp and Tzeentch.We stay here, until we find what we want.
>>19494811I choose the Light. We should let him rest, he's served us well. He should be granted his peace.
>>19494863Luigi has the right idea.
>>19494811"Pacinos, Geron, all of you, it is nice to see you again, but it is yet my time, but i cannot choose the ruinous power over you....I will come back, your sacrifice gives me strength, my sons"GO TO THE LIGHT SIDE AND PIERCE THE HEAVEN
>>19494811Wait, wait. Better idea. I choose option C. Start punching the fuck out of the side of the tunnel. Lets make our own way out! (if it doesn't work, I still got with Light.)
WE CANNOT END HERE, WE HAVE TOO MUCH STILL TO DO, STILL SO MUCH LEFT TO CARVE INTO THIS UNIVERSE.WE WILL SURVIVE, AND USE THE DARK AS A WEAPON, AND WE SHALL SLAY THE GREAT LEVIATHON, AND SHED ITS BLOOD FOR KHORNEBLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GODSKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE
>>19494811STAY AWAY FROM THE LIGHT! Go into the darkness.
>>19494863Actually yeah, I have to agree with him, that's a pretty good choice.
>>19494811We are the only ones who can save our chapter.The lives of our battle brothers are more important than our one meager soul.Strike out into the DARKNESS.
>>19494918>>19494899>>19494896>>19494892>>19494881>>19494871>>19494872Think about this guys.Sudden decisions caused our death before, we need to keep on our toes.
HOLY fuck idea. Lets try to contact the guy who said he could hear the Emperor.
>>19494863okay this make sense
>>19494638what a beautiful drawing
Chapter master Brethorius: Because he's the hero we deserve, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Prince of Chaos.
>>19494936HOREEE SHIT!!!!Good idea!Wez psyker now, remember?!
>>19494936THIRDED FOR THE EMPRA
>>19494936Oh space jesus. I doubt it'll work, but perhaps the warp reaches even here.Try to send out a psychic beacon for Brother Clarus or any other psyker in our chapter. At the very least, let them know of the Eldar prophecy.
>>19494972Yes. We have to be careful about this though. We're not even remotely close to being able to control it, and we don't want to have legions of daemons trying to come out of his eyes or something. We should do it slowly and gently. We have 8 years to try to contact him. I say we sit in this tunnel. And meditate.
>>19494936This.Send that guy the message, then go to the darkness so we can watch what happens, and try and hold onto sanity for as long as possible.Then when we go mad, hope that our chapter has the strength to kill us.
>>19494992Here we go.This is what we should do, making sudden decisions is bad for us.
Okay, so.....the majority opinion seems pretty clear here.We don't go to either the Light or the dark, we stay in the corridor, and try to contact someone using our psykic powers.Agreed?
>>19494982We can't just do it. We don't even know how. We should sit and try to figure it out.
Wow... not choosing. That's an interesting choice, I must admit. Please roll your willpower.Also, that candidate for Librarian was named Clarus. You might want to check out what that means in High Gothic.
>>19495013Agreed.We have time and power, that's all we need.
>>19495013Agreed. We had a candidate for our Chaplain position, who said he could hear the Emperor speak to him. We weren't sure what that meant, but I say we try to get a hold of him as well. His name was Clarus I believe
>>19495013Let's do it.
>>19495041Oh goddamn it, he's rotted isn't he?>>19495019ISN'T HE SKARGAN!?
>>19495019In Latine Clarus means 'clear' or 'bright'.Like....clarity....
rolled 15 = 15>>19495019I'll roll for willpower!
>>19495059Good job......I hope.
>>19495019Holy crap we all came up with an amazing plot hook to keep us in the game. Good job guys.
>>19495059Lookout status: Nullified.
>>19495064Low is good here.
>>19495096Well considering our chances for the engine, I wouldn't be surprised if the warp gods didn't eat our soul at 2+
>>19495106well...it was a willpwoer test, and our willpower is 45, so I would assume we needed <45 to pass.
>>19495129I'm glad then.I just hope Clarus isn't under the influence of rot, or that our beacon of power will draw in endless daemons.
>>19495129Plus any conditional modifiers to our roll. Being dead? Maybe it's a +40, who knows.
>>19495143If it does... Then we will fight them, the survival of our chapter depends on it. If that means we give up our immortal soul to the petty whims of daemons instead of basking in the endless light of the Emperor, then so be it.
>>19495059http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYWO84GUIg8Defying the forces from beyond the universe your barely evolved ape mind can understand you refuse to choose. Simply refuse. You have a message you have to deliver and you cannot choose oblivion no matter how much you want it, but your purity is what you are and darkness is not an option for you. If there is a thing Mankind is known for, it's stubbornness and you are the best Humanity has to offer! You draw the strength from your faith and from your Emperor, Eternal Father who watches over you even when you battle with universe on the very brink of Death itself... You remain where you are. Chained, but unbroken.
>>19495188And now to contact Clarus, and our chapter.
>>19495188The Big E protect us. Only years of careful psychic probing to go!
>>19495188>Eternal Father who watches over you even when you battle with universe on the very brink of Death itself.This just got epic.
>>19495203I concur, but we should proceed with psykic powers VERY carefully......Who agrees?
>>19495267We have time, but that's all we have left.
> your move xenos
>>19495188Now you can feel the universe, you think that your idea to reach out might work... You try to look for those who would open their minds to you. Clarus... seems to be angry on you for some reason. Reaching him will get -20 penalty. Anterion, your High Librarian is... fighting? yes, he is in a mortal fight, but he misses you, a lot(-10). Finally, there are two other entities, but they seem to be looking for you... One of them is ancient and wise, but it's the motives are beyond understanding(+15). The other is fueled by curiosity and righteous duty, it wants to find you to confirm it's suspicions...(+0) And somewhere deep below you, coming from the Darkness, you feel thousands of hands reaching out to you, wanting yo claim a new tool, champion or plaything to sate their eternal boredom...You can reach out only once, after that you will need to fight the 'draw' towards the opposites again.
>>19495267I agree on the very carefully bit. We can't just mind rape the guy and inform him what's going on. Although we can't try to make him go insane by just repeating his name inside his head. We have to play this smart.
i say the wise one (this is not an action)i mean, maybe its the emperor
>>19495284nice drawing, as a marine though he should be a bit.....thicker...
>>19495319The ancient and wise would be the Eldar, I believe.I would suggest council with them, we ARE powerful, however we are in a deadly situation.It is heretical to consider a Xeno as an option, however Anterion is fighting, and Clarus is risky, and contacting a random stranger who could possibly be a whole sector away from the Chapter may not be the best idea.While the Eldar may help us, but we certainly could seek guidance.
>>19495334Doubtful. It could be the Eldar. I say either Clarus, or the +0 one.
>>19495347sorry for that, third time drawing after 1 year hiatus
>>19495334Or it could be a chaos god?On the other hand though, we really NEED to contact someone....Idk....this is a hard decision....
>>19495347>>19495284So, it seems we have a face now...
>>19495360Oh don't be sorry, it's way better than I could do....
My vote is for wise.
>>19495361It could be, that is true.Clarus is risky because of the -20.Contacting Anterion is out of the question at the moment, he is in mortal combat.I would say the stranger or the ancient/wise we are already in the Dark God's realm, they could take us as they wish it, and would not employ such methods.
I still want to vote Clarus. Says something like "I must warn you!" or "The Chapter is in danger!". Something like that.
>>19495391>>19495394Yeah okay that seems the best option.I agree with contacting the wise person.
>>19495418We have years here.Our only problem is Daemons.And we are quite powerful.
roll d100 when ready and state whom you try to contact
>>19495437It depends really, fighting daemons is a whole other level of what most space marines can do.
so.....are we in agreement?Wise?
>>19495461True, but we are a chapter master.And a Psyker.
>>19495468I vote on it.
Shall I roll for contacting the wise one then?You have 3 minutes for objections.
>>19495539GO. EMPRA PROTECTS
>>19495539Do we only have one shot, or can we try the same person twice? Can we try multiple people? Is there any way to know that?So many questions.
>>19495572>You can reach out only once, after that you will need to fight the 'draw' towards the opposites again.Basically, we can re-try but we need to take tests.
>>19495572As far as I can tell, we can only contact one person at a time, if we fail, we must pass another willpower test to stay in the corridor, at which point.....something....
>>19495580In that case, I'll go against the grain and say the High Librarian. Just to be ballsy.
rolled 75 = 75Okay.....rollan....
>>19495597Losing the high librarian would be catastrophic to the Chapter.Especially if Clarus is under the influence of Rot.
>>19495602jesus fuck no
>>19495622We just need to roll for Willpower again like here: >>19495059Hopefully we don't get anything ELSE bad though.
>>19495602When you think that you are almost ready to communicate, you feel the aether winds draw you away, faster and faster... But you see that there is a way... You can push one of the smaller souls instead of yourself and you'll gain valuable time to do what you need... Because if you will return back to that tunnel, you might not muster the strength to pull out once more...
>>19495638I would hope our willpower has increased due to all the psykic attempts....
> s-stupid mon keigh!
>>19495663Who is the smaller soul?
rolled 29 = 29>>19495663Fuck you other soul. We got shit to do.
>>19495663You can either sacrifice someone who is of value to you, like Anterion, for example, or you can try to roll willpower again. but if you fail...
>>19495663what are these....'smaller souls'?Are these the ones reaching up at us earlier, wanting to hurt us?
>>19495677winter in charge of critical success
>>19495682Please ignore: >>19495677
rolled 99 = 99>>19495682Willpower then?
>>19495741Stop rushing damn it!
>>19495677Once again you turn back the tide of oblivion from your soul. Fuck warp, fuck universe, fuck laws of physics and spirit, there's only the Emperor!>>19495668Those faces... Ok, Chapter Master gets a Fate Point, but only if he survives all of this.Do you want to try again to contact wise entity?
rolled 16 = 16>>19495741oh shit...
>>19495741DEAR GOD NO
>>19495741I'm Lookout again guys.
>>19495750i rolled to counterbalance winter roll> SAAAAFE
>>19495741Okay ignore this, he already rolled for it.>>19495751And we use this for Wise-Entitiy.
>>19495751CONTACT WISE ENTITY WITH THIS ROLL
>>19495750Oh thank god that wasn't taken. Thank fucking god.
>>19495741shame i didn't notice it earlier... it would be tentacles, tentacles everywhere.>>19495751At last, you manage to make contact...>I see you, mon'keigh. This was one of the very weak threads of fate, I am surprised to see you die this way... Well, but even you can't win all of your games. This time you can't cheat. I am sorry, that you died, fate is twisting now.
>>19495817oh hai, so we die for sure now dm?
>>19495817It matters not Eldar.What matters now is that my Chapter learns of the threat, I trust not in my own powers for this venture, I hate to ask a favor of a Xeno, however in this situation.I find myself out of options, and my will fading.
>>19495846THISalso>"They must know the tale of my Strategic Girth"
>>19495817I vote we say:"And yet I speak with you at this very moment Eldar, I am not dead so long as the Emperor is in my heart and his will is in my head, you should know, we never yield.Now tell me, how can I escape from this nightmare?!"
>>19495867>>19495846How about we add them together?We ask the Xeno of the favor, and ask them if we can escape?
this is more and more like dawn of war, not that i dont like it, i really do, so who is the next roll for master?
>>19495878Wait for it Berserker, we can probably save him.
>>19495886This way we have a chance of escape and the chapter will (maybe) hear word of the threat faster.I trust not in our powers of the art of escape.
>>19495846That is not possible, only you can deliver this message. Even if Fate would allow us to do it, your brothers wouldn't trust us. However you don't seem to be satisfied with your demise, you are still in the state of undeath, something like that happens only to our warriors when their souls are trapped in spirit stones... I think I can offer you a solution here that will serve both of us. There is only one kind of artists who can trick Fate. Harlequins. They serve the Laughing God, one who knows all the secrets of the universe. If you promise him a sacrifice, he might spare you and trick Death to get you out. And I am saying not because I like you or anything, just because prophecy told me to say so.
okay lets ask then, maybe we REALLY need to pay something for our releas, become blind or mute, or losing kidney
>>19495902What are our choices for sacrifice?
>>19495902holy fuck this is awesome
>>19495902Would one of our hearts suffice as a sacrifice?
>>19495902Sweet. We've got a Farseer Tsundere for us. YOU CAN'T IGNORE OUR GIRTH. We will sacrifice our powers of control of the warp to the Laughing god. Whaddaya think?
>>19495932or our psykic powers, sacrificing those would certainly make things a little less complicated...
>>19495926How about we sacrifice someone else instead of gimping ourselves
>>19495932We have already died once due to our lack of skills.I would say we should sacrifice our soul, after we have fulfilled our duty, and fight forever with him against Chaos.
>>19495932More accurately, we get rid of our Psyker trait. I think that's a major sacrifice.
>>19495902>And I am saying not because I like you or anything>Silly baka!
>>19495943can sacrifice the planet? fuck those guys
>>19495943But who????I guess we could pledge everyone we ever kill...since they're enemies of the Emprah anyway.
We should sacrifice whoever made the decision to critically fail repairing the ship >fryisee.jpg
>>19495950That... is dangerously close to heretical, if not for the fact that it's a planet of mutants and abhumans.
>>19495943It depends who. Plus... I think that generally stinks of "cowardly heresy" instead of "heroic sacrifice"
>>19495961>>19495959>>19495952>>19495950Alright, first off we need to see WHO or WHAT we can sacrifice.And what would be considered heretical or not.
Why don't we find out what kind of sacrifice The Laughing God would like before making a decision. My vote is for the planet/everyone we ever kill ever (even though that seems pretty herectical).WE ARE BECOME DEATH, DESTROYER OF WORLDS
>>19495974Actually pledging our eternal soul in 8 years once we've saved our chapter might be good
>>19495974I don't think that would cut it/be preferred. Why would the laughing god want our kill count? It's of no use to him. I vote our psyker powers if it's an option.
>>19495974Yeah let's just ask that god what he wants.
>>19495993We need to know how to even contact him first, but yeah
>>19495981Well, consider the fact we have died.It will improve relations Eldar relations with our Chapter not to mention, it's not heretical because he will most probably meld our soul with his harlequin warriors, meaning we would fight Chaos forever.
Ah fuck. I had to step away for a few minutes and you guys are trying to give away worlds we don't have?You guys are terrible at bargaining. First offer psyker abilities, then soul *after* we save the chapter. Then, I dunno, moving up from there. DO NOT ask him what he wants.
>>19495991because of reasons, its the laughing god, but better we ask first
>>19496008To be clear, those were escalating offers. Not just one.
>>19496008why is that we shouldnt ask?
>>19496017Because he'll just demand the thing he wants most. You've given up your entire hold over the bargain. You start low and make them settle.Yeah, we're gonna out-haggle the Laughing God or die trying. Maybe that's a bad choice of words.
>>19496017It gives him the power in this deal. Which, I mean, he'd probably already have. But if we straight up off something, he'd at least have to counter offer or something. I'm not going to pretend to understand the Laughing God though. That road leads only to madness.
LET'S TAKE A VOTE AND MOVE ON, IT'S GETTING LATE AND THIS WAS MEANT TO BE A SHORT SESSION
>>19496035Yeah starting offer the psyker powers seems good.Hey, with any luck he might take it all away and we become a blank!
>I've spoken with Athair of the Harlequin troupe, he told me that Laughing God always likes to leave a choice... Here are your options:1. Sacrifice a part of your luck(-10) to all roll thresholds2. Sacrifice your charisma - you will no longer be able to inspire respect or friendship from those around you, people are a lot more likely to wish you harm3. Sacrifice your sanity - you will be damned to see visions and hallucinations, maybe even losing control from time to time4. Sacrifice the rest of your Chapteris it possible to revoke the sacrifice at some later point? yes, but most likely you will have to exchange it into something else or at least amuse Laughing God greatly so that he would consider something like this.Choose
>>19496044Okay okay!I vote: Offer Psyker ability.
>>19496059My vote is for option 1
>>19496059Fuuuuuuu, I say our sanity.
>>19496059Sanity. Absolutely sanity.I don't care if we keel over the second after we tell the chapter the prophecy. But we must. Tell. The Chapter. The prophecy. I trust our battle brothers enough to prevent cataclysm without us.
>>19496059>1. Sacrifice a part of your luck(-10) to all roll thresholdsThat will make things hard, really hard.>2. Sacrifice your charisma - you will no longer be able to inspire respect or friendship from those around you, people are a lot more likely to wish you harmProbably the best option, but we'd have many more battles.>3. Sacrifice your sanity - you will be damned to see visions and hallucinations, maybe even losing control from time to timeThis option would be horrible, not to mention people could always considering these sorts of things are nearly always accompanied with Rot, meaning our own chapter may not even believe us.>4. Sacrifice the rest of your ChapterHaha, nope.
>>19496059Can't sacrifice chapter. We want to save our chapter.Charisma will be very bad for our intensely diplomatic chapter master.Insanity could go horribly wrong (or we could go full malkavian which might be hilarious).Best choice as I see it is to sacrifice Luck, although it will make pretty much everything harder for us.
OKAY I VOTE SANITY TOO
>>19496059Request a counter-offer.
The majority vote is option 3.Let's go.
i assume we will return with broken body, with minus in insanity, lets play it as Don the insane thruster, like Bjorn the fell handed> WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE
>>19496099>>19496089>>19496086>>19496084>>19496078>>19496072Sanity it is then... All of a sudden your Eldar friend gets lost in the mists of aether and you find yourself against in the middle of the tunnel. But now it's different. You feel, that something changed. All of a sudden you start hearing strange voices:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW1rr3BJiLYThen a glass door opens in the side of the tunnel and a joyful voice calls out:>Here, here my good mister, the troupe awaits, we dance the Dance of Death tonight, and you are our main performer! Danse Macabre, mon ami! Hahahah!
>>19496175We open the door, and walk our merry way.
>>19496175dear god what have we done
>>19496175We open the doorget on the flooreverybody walk the dinosaur
>>19496184We have saved our Chapter...
>>19496175wow already SAN loss inducing
>>19496175SHIIIIT. Luck would have been a better choice. Now we're at even more risk for psyker related BS.
>>19496196Not yet Brother.We need to gain contact with them first, not to mention, the fits could get us into trouble with the Inquisition.
We're now schizophrenic.All the people posting in the thread are voices in Chapter Master's head.
>>19496214>that explains the thrust and reactor blastor didnt it
>>19496226BwahahaahahaOh god I feel sorry for the guy.
>>19496226Oh god we've been insane all along.Now we're just aware of it.
>>19496214HAHAHAHA. Perfect. Don't worry man, we'll keep you safe. Or at least try too.
o boy this quest is going places
So what's gonna be the title of this thread in the archive?> Chapter Master Quest X - Don't Touch The Red Button?
Skargan, if when you have time, could you make your way into the chat? Thanks.
>>19496281o boy this is perfect
>>19496175http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9fI1tKIy84As you walk through the dark, noiseless tombs in the very guts of the void, where no living soul was ever meant to thread, you listen to strange chanting and laughter from all sides... Shadows of jesters, drinking and dancing follow you, all of them merry even though many of them are already decaying.>I hope that you understad how lucky you are that the big guy liked your performance on the mortal soil... His tastes have become exquisite in this age of extremes... And your sanity will be such a delicious treat! Believe me, I bet it has a similar feel to the one we piece by piece took out of your dead father, it probably runs in the blood, doesn't it!? Hahahah! Well, now, we are here. You see a huge ancient well in front of you, full of decaying bodies and organs.>What are you waiting for, this is your world! Don't you miss it? Jump! Before you can do anything, shadows push you into the abyss...
>>19496309>press nose with one handtime to dive!
>>19496309By the Emperor....Wait! The fuck was that about our father!!!
That feel when it was the laughing god who made our dice rolls bad, and was laughing as we were getting atomized.
>>19496309Jump on in, the sanity loss is just fine!
>This whole QuestShit just got real.Captcha: succumb erndago
>>19496309All you can feel is pain, terrible pain, not like anything you've ever felt in your life. It is so intense that you can't even think about wanting it to stop. Pain is the part of your being, your existence is pain. And it is dark, very dark. And wet. And hot. As if you were in a womb, a teryfing giant womb.you feal as if you are in a sack of meat, but there are bones on the sides also... What do you do?
>>19496402RIP AND TEAR your way out.
>>19496402RIP AND TEAR
>>19496402Claw our way our like the insane, almost dead guy we are.Also, thread achieved. Just go re-request it when we finish tonight.
The darkness of Chaos surrounds us. We must fight, we must escape. We must prevail against this torment.
>>19496447>>19496446>>19496433>>19496424>>19496419>>19496416OH SHIT.WAIT, DO NOTHING, WAIT.IT'S A FUCKING ILLUSION ISN'T IT?!
>>19496458WE'EW INSANE WHO GIVES A SHITRIP AND TEARRIP AND TEAR
This is a test, by The Emperor, I will prevail! No pain, no xenos trickery will stall me in my quest. I must return to my chapter. I must turn back the tide.
We must bring word to our chapter as fast as possible! Get out!
>>19496447>>19496424>>19496419>>19496416>>19496446>>19496433>>19496424>>19496419>>19496416Your artificial abomination of a mother howls as you begin to rip your way out of her womb, you can hear the lungs above you vibrate, but you just punch them and they stop moving... All covered in blood, guts and bone fragments you rip yourself out into the bright white sun and freezing Mormarkian wind... Out of a snow beast.
>>19496494And I thought they smelled horrible from the outside.
>>19496458FUCK HE'S RIGHT!!!!Deal with the pain!!!Curl into foetal position and think of Big E.....
>>19496494oh sweet, lets skin it guys, agree? its a fucking ice world
>>19496494Well, that was interesting.Anyway, Skin the thing and get us a coat.
>>19496501nice.jpg.Cough up flem and bits of insides. Get up and try to find bearings.
rolled 73 = 73Roll for willpower, for clarity of thought. We must overcome this xenos trickery!
oh boy, its like we are trapped inside shamalyaman movie, WHAT A TWEEST
>>19496494Lets use our Psyker powers to establish contact to someone as fast as we can.
>>19496518Is it an illusion though?If not...yeah...skin it...But with what?I guess the hide is thick enough and our strength great enough to use our hands....
>>19496536We cannot use our powers. The fact we weren't crushed by the foul damons of the warp was by sheer luck alone! We traversed this place once before, we can do it again. Lets find us some bearings.
We are the proudest of the proud. We will not stoop to the levels of the Herectical Space Wolves. We ignore the beast. We must scout the area. We must find where we are. We must reach our brothers. We must turn back the Xenos tide.
>>19496534As you try to gather up your mind, you witness your first vision... You KNOW that the first person to whom you'll speak in fortress monastery will die.You skin the beast and use the pelt to keep yourself warm. You notice that your body indeed looks as if it was just born, there are no scars left, and the skin is soft and red like a baby...
>>19496567We need to move and deliver our message with all haste.If we find a Psyker on the planet we can call for reinforcements and transport.
>>19496534NO NEED. Skin it, wear it as a coat.
>>19496575That's some heavy shit....I guess we walk for a bit and try to find civilisation.
>>19496575> warpceptionlets not talk with important npc, shall we
>>19496575"By the Emperor no!" find ourselves shifting through the snow, looking for something but forgetting what. "I must keep moving." Begin to leave.
>>19496575SHIT. They're going to think warp fuckery happened to us. And in a way, it did. They won't be able to detect any taint though. After all, we didn't make any deals with the Chaos gods or anything. We aren't corrupted.
We set out, not knowing which direction to travel. We trust in The Emperor to show us the way.
>>19496608DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YA.I SAID IT BACK THEN.
Roll d100 for navigation. You are not afraid of anything right now, but it will still take more or less time to get back home...
>>19496613that is the fun part isn't it, its like punching a pinata
rolled 90 = 90>>19496627
rolled 43 = 43Rolling for The Light of The Emperor to guide us back to our Brothers.
>>19496637GODDAMN IT LUIGII knew we should have used our Psyker shit.
>>19496637WELP. We're fucking lost.
>>19496637"Curse this blasted ice! Everything looks the same."
>>19496637"I wonder if this is the effect of my sacrifice to the Xeno's laughing god, no matter, I must press on, for the Chapter, for the Imperium."
"The Emperor guides, The Emperor protects. The Emperor shall be my warmth in this frozen waste."
>>19496676"and so i pissed and use it as a heather"
>>19496646You are a lot more fucked than that... You notice a landspeeder coming at you full speed. It's coming uphill, 1 mile away. What do?You can't see any symbols or marks because of the speed, might be Ghost landspeeder, might be not...
>>19496682This........is troubling.Use Psyker powers to detect rot, or DODGE.
rolled 44 = 44Roll to make heroic, perfectly timed leap onto the landspeeder."The power of The Emperor shall be my wings!"
>>19496682Yell at top of lungs "Ghosts of Retribution, to meeeee!!" Fall to knees, arm raised in the air waving at them.
>>19496682"ah! friendlies!"wave your hand
>>19496706Oh god that's the worst option.If they were Chaos they'd gun us down instantly.
>>19496714yeap...better step bit down, and wait if we can recognize them
I vote we hit the fucking deck and stay down.
"I trust in The Emperor and my Strategic Girth."
rolled 1 = 1...
>>19496730this gun be good
>>19496724No, Call for "My brothers"Chaos refer to each other as battle brothers as well yes?>>19496730HAHA, That's....good right?
>>19496714The shit would have to have hit the fan pretty hard for Chaos guys to be running around on our fortress monestary world, WITH landspeeders of all things.
>>19496730Shit just got real.
>>19496748We died and made a contract with the Laughing god, and we have been re-born inside a frost animal.I'm taking no chances.Also, OH SHIT how long has it been!?
rolled 2 = 2>>19496727>>19496726>>19496724>>19496714>>19496706Landspeeder goes directly at you, but at the last moment turns to the side and stops in mid. Air next moment Anterion jumps out looks you in the eye and brohugs you with a force that only space marine longing for a brother can have."Brother... We missed you so much... I have no words. The moment I detected you... I couldn't believe it. What has happened? Where have been all these years?"
fuck!!!!!!remember!!!!the first guy we talk to dies!!!!
>>19496766>AnterionGOD FUCKING DAMN IT
>yearsWe know the prophecy. We know the first person to whom we speak shall die. We must stay silent. Perhaps we use our quill-fu to perfectly demonstrate the perils we faced.
>>19496766TALK TO THE OTHER SPEEDER DWELLER FIRST ASKING FOR LIGHTER
>>19496793Agreed with Shark.Stay silent, or >>19496800
rolled 34 = 34>>19496793Rolling to create perfect quill-fu images on the ice detailing our exploits, paying special attention to our Strategic Girth and leaving out the details of becoming a psyker/doing a deal with XENOS SCUM.
>>19496766"By the Emperor, I'm sorry Anterion..." Hang head in shame. But after a few moments come to terms. "We need to move, the chapter is in great peril."
>>19496809DAMN IT ISAAC.READ THE LINES
>>19496809>>19496793Yeah, nevermind fuck my post. Go with Sharks.
>>19496800You take a peak into the speeder and you realise that it is empty, Anterion probably wanted to meet you first and make sure that his senses didn't deceive him, so he came alone..."What is it brother, are you ok?"Anterion grows concerned.
>>19496814Shark still beat me to it. His post would stand.
>>19496800This.It sounds harsh, but in the end, Marines are made to die in the crucible of battle, it is more valuable to the emperor that Anterion lives longer, whereas the other marine can go to glorious death more readily.
>>19496838See: >>19496825Fuck.Guess we have to do quill-fu images.
>>19496825We do >>19496805
>>19496825Use the vox system on the speeder to call base....
rolled 78 = 78>>19496809"What are you sorry about, my friend? Everything's alright now, that you are here... You will restore order to the Chapter and we will fight together as we once did! And now let's fly back home, I want to share the joy with other brother!"You sit into the gunner seat and you take off towards the fortress monastery.
>>19496843Not to shoot us in the foot, but...where'd we get the quill? We were just birthed....Ick.
>>19496869Oh yeah.We're dumb.>You KNOW that the first person to whom you'll speak in fortress monastery will die.GUYS IT'S INSIDE THE MONASTERY
>>19496879WE ALWAYS HAVE THE QUILL
>>19496869And now I'm the most hated guy in the thread right now lol. My bad guys.
>>19496869I guess that's it then....sorry Anterion....But we can make sure his death is GLORIOUS!!!
>>19496886SHIT YOU BE RIGHT!
>>19496905>>19496895So we need to be careful, but not THAT careful.
>>1949686978roll... All of a sudden you hear the engines of your landspeeder failing, Anterion turns to you and smiles:"Don't worry, it always does that, give it a couple of seconds... what..?"To be continued next session.
>>19496922HAHA, fuck.Damn it Anterion.
>>19496922Sweet.Ty again Skargan, 8 hour sessions are fun.
Great thread guys. See you next time.
>>19496938damn, it was really supposed to be a SHORT session. As my leg is still healing, there might be another session tommorow.
>>19496952Around the same time?I'll be expecting it.
>>19496984yeah, probably, i usually start between 4 - 10 PM GMT
>>19496993'Twas my first session, I liked it.Hope I'll be there for the next.
>>19496993I'll be on a plane perhaps passing over your UK heads tomorrow, so I hope very fervently they have wifi. If not, please don't blow up the monastery or hump the Chaplain.
