http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_Quest_WikiOur wiki slowly grows. I added previous sessions, important characters, unfinished bussiness that might interest you. Game should start within an hour.New players are welcome, don't be shy to ask questions. Our channel is here: http://cbe005.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.net
motherfucking baaamp, im going home 1st then see you in an hour
>>19658545sure, I need to make something to eat for myself first.
>>19659055hey, bro! welcome aboard, I am about to start.
>>19659105Awesome.Just one thing, we should promote/decorate Elegion, as you said, he is sorely underrated.
Back in my home country, fucking finally. Missed two sessions, I think? I haven't had time to catch up, though. Skimming the archives now, but I'll be following this.
It is late spring of year 322.M41. You have about 1000 days left until the invasion. And then you receive this.
>>19659231You can find all sessions here. http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Previous_sessions>>19659137What exactly do you have in mind for him?
>>19659330Those damned bolter bitches.....I guess we don't have a choice when it comes to the Inquisition. We're gonna have to prepare a good defence.
i say we go ace attorney and fight them on the court
>>19659352Well I was thinking maybe a promotion to Sergeant (if he isn't already) and an Imperial Laurel or Iron Skull.
>>19659353Isn't the =][= dude. It's an imperial court.
>>19659352Could we use some of our favour with the High Lords of Terra to make all this law business....go away...?
>>19659383Well yeah but the SoB are sort of part of the Ordo Hereticus, and we're being accused of Heresy by them, so I assume they'll be prosecuting
>>19659408Ordo Hereticus likes to use Sisters of Battle as their shock troops, but they are by no means part of the Inquisition. For now it seems that only Imperial Court is throwing charges at you. Pic - your judge, Nestus Margon.>>19659377What are the decorations in your Chapter? What is the value of>Imperial Laurel or Iron Skull.?just so that I would know whether it's something that you give him in a palm and tap on a shoulder or gather up the company and present with highest honourshttp://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Nestus_Margon
>>19659448The Imperial Laurel and Iron Skill are general Astartes honour badge, the Laurel is rewarded for acts of valour leading to great victory (killing that warboss), and the Iron Skull is awarded for skillful leadership.I think the Imperial Laurel would be best. It is a mark of loyalty and heroism, and the awarding ceremony tends to be a fairly grand and traditional affair.As for the trial, can we request the HLoT get them off our back?
>>19659502>>19659509Yes, you can send your plea to High Lords to consider your matter. As you are not sure how strongly Sisters will try to prosecute you, I cannot tell you how much Favour this might cost.Oh, so these awards aren't specific to Ghosts of Retribution? I'll start a page for distinguished members of the Chapter and their awards once i have some time
>>19659502i don't think its worth it to use favor...winter whaddya think?i propose we go there, face the court, and we try to get sun tzu to help us, hannibal-style
>>19659600That Sun Tzu eldar is still a prisoner of the SoB though.But yeah face them in court, we're a chapter master dammit, what they gonna do?!
>>19659619precisely, it IS in SoB bastion right?
There is one more thing - how do you want to call your Fortress Monastery?A few suggestions from me to fit Ghost theme:The Restless Grave/TombThe TombThe Gravewhat do you suggest?
>>19659641The trial is on Tachion Primaris, not the SoB monastary, at least according to the letter.
>>19659651The Retributor's Crypt?
Greetings, my brothers!
>>19659654fuck me sideways>>19659651> Fortress of Vengeance
>>19659654trial is in the Capitolis Sectorum>>19659673good to see you, bro>>19659664sounds nice. brothers would probably shorten it to Crypt, but yeahYou have 5 minutes to decide what you reply to that letter.
>>19659713I say we go and reply, oh and i like tombstone
>>19659737Agreed, with both.
now, we go to the capital, we have agents there + we need to bring revenants and 1 squad of marines i say, seeing how hostile the aristrocracy is
>>19659711>>19659701Tombstone is better imho because it's shorter and easier to use in conversations, but Fortress of Vengeance is also cool. You have two minutes regarding the reply, after that i'll start replying with assumption that you ignored their letter.
>>19659747Yup sounds good.
>>19659737>>19659741>I'm contributing>I'm happyI agree, we should reply to the letter and go to the trial
>>19659750i replied>>19659747regarding name, maybe we can name the baneblade fortress of vengeance instead, and put tombstone as our fort
>>19659777>Baneblade "Fortress of Vengeance"I like this.
>>19659777The Retribution Baneblade as the 'Fortress of Vengeance'.......Yes....definitely yes.
>>19659790>>19659793baneblade as fortress anything is always cool yes i like using this image
>>19659802I've noticed...The question is....which one of those two are you?
>>19659814do i even need to answer it, broseph?
>>19659790>>19659777>>19659747Done!As your ship approaches Tachion Primaris, you are intercepted by Imperial Navy Cruisers "Blade of Justice" and "Clara". A familiar voice that you recognize as belonging to Admiral Tyrel, contacts you:>I was hoping that we won't have to meet under such circumstances, Chapter Master. Unfortunately these are my orders - you are to be put under arrest and "Aspera Dominus" is not allowed to leave the system without our permission. We will come to take you aboard soon. Please be alone and unarmed. You may leave your armour on you.You lose Reputation[Sympathy] with the Imperial Navy.What do you do?
>>19659835>Unarmed>AloneSorry, imperial navy. One or the other, you can't have both.
>>19659835"oh Admiral Tyrel, good to see you here, of course no problem there sir, can i bring my brothers also?">signal the revenant to suit up and stealthly infiltrate nearest ship
>>19659835Hmm....should we take the Revenants along with us? Or would it be unwise to risk provoking the Imperial Navy....
>>19659858sorry should be "can i bring my auto quill also? its lonely without it"i only read the unarmed part >.>
>>19659875>Autoquil,,, Should be fine, Lord Astartes. It can't hurt anyone, can it?>>19659858Gereon turns to you:>My Revenants are ready, lord. It might be tricky to follow you, but we will always stay near.>>19659853Do you refuse?
DO YOU REFUSE?
>>19659967"oh no its just an old memento..."> Hand signal to Revenant to follow suit, not too close but not too far> vote not to refuse, just snarky comment"boy oh boy, youngster these days are so stern"
>>19660022I am going afk for a while. Tomb of VengeanceTombstoneRefusalthink about these
>>19660049Well... I drop the "refuse" thing.
As soon as you are taken aboard "Clara" Admiral Tyrel approaches you.>Chapter Master, I hereby take you into Imperial custody. You will be taken to Tachion Primaris for your trial.After the official declaration he approaches you and whispers:>I am sorry about this. Be careful, they can't do anything to you, but they are waiting for excuse. He then again loudly commands troops to escort you to the dropship. (You are being escorted by 8 Kill-Troopers armed with meltaguns) You can feel that Geron is somewhere within the ship.
>>19660328What a bro. Let's do what he says
>>19660328give a meaningful smile and do as he says
Waitaminute, do we have out scholar of imperial law with us here?There's a reason why I've been badgering you about getting one for two or three threads now,
>>19660328When you reach the surface there are crowds around the space port. Not many people have seen an Astartes and even less people have seen an Astartes accused of Heresy. As you step down from the dropship three Adeptus Sororitas Rhinos appear. They have a brief argument with Kill-Troopers guarding you, but then they settle on escorting official governmental Rhino instead of claiming you for themselves.Using this interruption, Imperial chroniclers and scribes flock to you asking various questions:>Are you a heretic?>What do you have to say to the people of Imperium?>Do you feel ashamed?>Is it true that you renounced the Emperor?>What is your Primarch?>etc.how do you deal with this?
>>19660409aye, sadly we don't
>>19660424IT'S GIRTH TIME
>>19660424"pff, questions, questions, why so impatient dears?...bring me the highest inquisitor there is in this planet and i will start to talk, capice?"
>Are you a heretic?>What do you have to say to the people of Imperium?>Do you feel ashamed?>Is it true that you renounced the Emperor?>What is your Primarch?In short: we are not a heretic, we did what we did because it was the right thing to do and we stand by our decision.We are ready and willing to defend our actiions in the court of imperial law.
>>19660455>>19660426its me btw
>>19660455>>19660409>So you do agree with Sororitas requests so that the Inquisition should be called in?also roll d100 for Charm to present yourself in best possible light
>>19660521wow wait, i tought we ARE interviewed by the inquisition (dayum its hard to type that)
>>19660527check this ->>>19659330It's Imperial CourtAlso, are you sure that you want Henrikus to represent you in Imperial Court?
>>19660547well he is the only one with any knowledge on imperial law yes? also i tought imperial court = inquisition so welp, whats done is donealso any chance sun tzu is here? motherfucker should be acing this by now
>>19660547We should represent ourselves, but with Henrikus giving us advices at every step.
>>19660547I can't see why not, he knows the most about imperial law, and the rest of our chapter would not be happy if we are incarcerated/executed.
rolled 36 = 36>>19660561ThisAlso, here's a roll
rollan for charm
rolled 41 = 41>>19660521turning on the charm
rolled 7 = 7>>19660574FORGOT MY DAMN DICE
>>19660572>>19660561Imperial chroniclers seem to be sympathetic to your cause, at least for now. When you come to the Imperial palace, everyone is waiting for you there already. You notice Admiral Tyler, Sector Governor Larion Ursus, Canoness Amelia Engel and a man that you assume to be High Cardinal - Astrobelus Kest.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IliwQImJrYE&feature=relatedYou are approached here by Brethorius, Henrikus and Klementhos. You notice, that the old warrior is worried, but Brethorius reports casually:>Sir, they allowed me to take in only a single squad. But you may worry not, I've picked them myself, they are crack troops, with our lives we will buy you enough time to reach the outside, there Xyptus' agents will take you into Thunderhawk and ship you off-planet. Shame that we don't have a tactical nuclear charge to cover our tracks, I wouldn't want to fall alive into their hands. Any last battle orders, sir?Henrikus also approaches you:>Sir, I offer you my friendship once more, please let me represent you to the Imperial Court! I could finish this before evening!
>Sir, I offer you my friendship once more, please let me represent you to the Imperial Court! I could finish this before evening!Yes, he should represent us.I thought that he should only give us advice earlier, but I changed my mind now.
>>19660688question, does that means we need to choose to bail or do the courtorwe can choose bail as last resort?
>>19660718>>19660709Roll your Intelligence
rolled 11 = 11>>19660730mmkay....
>>19660740(A hint: remember the prophecy.)High Judge Nestus step up:>I, High Judge Nestus Margon, hereby open the 3354th session of Imperial Court on the year of Our Lord 322.M41. Order of Bloody Rose is accusing the Ghosts of Retribution with heinous crimes of heresy, breach of jurisdiction and interfering with Imperial investigation. Who is going to represent the defendant?Henrikus steps forward:>I, Henrikus Isdavik, will do so to the best of my ability, lord!Meanwhile a shadowy figure appears behind you:>Lord, this is Xyptus. I have received disturbing report from my agents. There is a traitor in the Chapter...I am afk again
>>19661130There is a non-zero chance that he will say "I AM THE TRAITOR BUAHAHAHAHA" and try to stab us, so be ready to react if he does.Other than that, tell him to speak.He can provide us with more detailed evidence later.
back.>...but we have no idea who he is. Do you have any orders sir?Meanwhile you can hear Canoness Engel arguing her case against you.
>>19661506Investigate. Our chapter is the most important thing.
>>19661506"suspicion can distinct friends from foe, my son, but distrust will keep your allies away, carry on your investigation, but remember, keep the faith"
>Do you have any orders sir?Make sure that nobody interferes with the trial for now, we can prepare a detailed internal investigation plan after we are done keeping ourselves from being branded heretics.Right now, pay attention to the trial while our master of whispers follows up on any leads he might know.
We should start listening to the prosecution.
>>19661540>>19661529>I will, sire, but we know, that this traitor might strike today. Be careful.Xyptus leaves your side. As soon, as Canoness finishes her speech, Henrikus steps up to the tribune:> I, Henrikus Isdavik, claimed the right to speak on behalf of Ghosts of Retribution today. However my heart wants to split in two, because it fights itself, between the duty to my masters and my love for the Emperor. I have served this Chapter for over decade, from the day they came to this Sector. I have tolerated their heresy for long enough, but lifting a hand against other Imperial servants is beyond the boundaries of my tolerance. Here, take this.He gives a parcel of pergaments and data slates to one of the attending Sisters. Murmuring rises among the nobles.>My lords, I admit that I and my masters are heretics in the eyes of the Emperor and here you have all the evidence that you might need. Please, cleanse our sins with the harshest punishment you can imagine. May He Who sits on Terra have mercy on our souls. I'm done.roll perception d100...All of a sudden you hear laugh in your head...
rolled 38 = 38>>19661635"oh why so serious henrikus"
rolled 88 = 88rolling
rolled 22 = 22>>19661635We should kick the shit out of our lawier, while yelling "YOU HERETIC SCUM!"
rolled 49 = 49Outrage!"YOU LIE, HENRIKUS. If you have served us for over a decade, why turn in evidence now? why not sooner? If you truly believed us heretics, you would have called in the Inquisition!"
>>19661652What is your perception?That laugh in your head mocks you. >Warrior beats his head against the stone, but can't see a way around it seems. This is way more fun than We bargained for, you are SO fucked! Heretic! Hahahah...All of a sudden you remember...>And beware of dragon in the sky and the one who promises you frienship, for they all want to watch you fall and burn. >Sir, I offer you my friendship once more, please let me represent you to the Imperial Court! I could finish this before evening!...shit. Roll your willpower not to chimp out.
rolled 95 = 95>>19661763Rollin'
rolled 11 = 11WILLPOWER ROLL
>>19661773Looks like it's time to be proclaimed heretics.Anyway, I'm off to sleep, good night.
Welp.. This should be fun
rolled 82 = 82>>19661763"you know Henrikus, my friend, are you sure I AM the heretics?"> supercharged the quill with psyk, send it to the warp"ladies and gentlemen, have you ever witness, a true perill on the warp?"> re emerge the quill on his belly, shoot it to his throat"I had a gift, of knowing who has the ruinous power, and who has not"> psychic whisper "laughing god, its my payment for your favor, summon a minor daemon on his ass, and get a spectacle, deal""lo and behold">smile really wide, spread hands while pointing at Henrikus
>>19661652You notice that Henrikus is taking out a gun from underneath his clothes.>>19661773I strongly advise to burn Fate Point. This is a potential situation for TPK and/or going CHAOS
>>19661835this 1000x also that horrible roll :nowayinb4 daemon is spiders
>>19661840we will burn faith at the last possible moment i say, dunno bout spiders
>>19661846>>19661835For doing this I need at least 3 YES
>>19661840mmkay, I say burn a fate point.As for the gun....grab his wrist, making sure to let the gun fire in the air, clearly showing everyone his douchebaggery.
>>196618721000000 x NO
sooo my idea is not supported? well fate point then, we ditch with the loyalist using it
>>19661891BURN A FATE POINT TO MAKE HIM INTO A DEMON!It's the only way
>>19661868Regarding the Fate Point - failing chimp out test with 95 means that you will grab Brethorius' bolter and mow down the Imperial elite of this Sector + as many representatives(among them your allies, like AdMech) as possible. Fate Point can make you pass the test, but it will not be able to revive all of them if you change your mind later. This is a one-way decision. Once you go warp, you never go back.
>>19661913if i have to burn fate point, i want my fate point to turn that motherfucker into minor daemon so we can prove our loyaltymowing down allies taste bad in my mouth
>>19661930If you will use FP to summon daemon, you will chimp out. It's like this:You in control: BURN FPYou go crazy: FP REMAINSit's not about daemon or Henrikus. If you go crazy, then after that you can use FP to summon daemon. You can't do both with one FP
>>19661913so could you elaborate more skargan? what choice do we have?
>>19661960you can do anything, but first we must resolve chimp out.>>19661959Regarding stopping Henrikus, you need to roll your agility, which is 36 if I remember right. And if I am wrong, it's your fault that you don't use wiki I made :D
>>19661959use FP not to get crazywait until he draw his gun"this unfunny humour shall not continues even more..."
>>19662035=Fate Point burned=You breathe in deeply and close your eyes. As you open your eyes the first thing you see is Henrikus blasting his own brains with a stub-revolver. You notice over a handred various guns targetting at you, nobles and representatives are quickly leaving the hall, accompanied by their bodyguards and High Judge Nestus Margon shouts:>Seize the heretic!Brethorius looks at you trying to understand whether you are going to try do this peacefully or the time has come for him to become martyr...
"remember my words brethorious, winning 100 battles undefeated is not the acme of skill, winning war without bloodshed is"> kneel on the podium, pray to the emperor, we are innocent and the world shall see
>>19662206Your brothers remain silent, as you are seized, your armour is taken off and you are brought to a cell in the highest spire of Hive Babelion. All the means of communication are taken away from you and you are guarded at all times by Sisters and Praetorian Kill-Troopers. Day after day passes until finally you receive a visitor. A dark figure with a face hidden under a metal mask comes into your cell and without any ceremonies sits down in front of you. He takes out an Inquisitorial Rosette and flashes it in front of your face:>They call me Faceless. Yeah, I know how original it sounds, but plebs were never known for their originality. By the grace of Him on Terra I am an Imperial Inquisitor and I came here to judge you. The charges are very serious and I won't lie to you - if you do not cooperate with me you and your brothers might face Excommunication.-987 days until the invasion-Do we wrap it up here or continue?
It's a good place to stop, I could continue though.
we should wrap up, but when are we continuing my i ask?
