http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASj81daun5Q---Who is our enemy? We do not know. How strong is it? This is not know to us either. From where will it come? We can only guess.Then why does it come here? That is the only thing we know for sure, Brothers. To destroy us.To kill, to burn, to maim and torture. To wipe our Chapter from existence and erase it's name from all the records. Prophecy foretold us that we will perish on this world, our Chapter Master himself will fall, trying to stop the unstoppable. But we will not run. We will not hide. And no, we will not try to cheat Fate. We are too subtle for that. We will take it by the neck, kick it's teeth in and then stick a bayonet up it's arse. No one messes with this Chapter, not Death, not Chaos, not Gods, Laughing or not, not even Fate itself! For we are Ghosts of Retribution and no grave shall take us until we are done with you. Let them come. We wait.------NEW PLAYERS - don't be afraid to join us for a chat in here: http://cbe005.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.netOUR WIKI: http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_Quest_Wiki----Pic made by Chapter Master PC game team, let's support them however we can and prove that /tg/ can get shit done!
>>19764338324.M41There is less than a year left until the Invasion. I will see how many players are here tonight and then we will either finish up the preparations or move on to the main action.I am away to take a walk in the nature for inspiration and make something to eat, so the game should start in about an hour.
If we could do a kickstarter for chapter master I think it would rockSadly GW would come in with the legal rape train the moment it was suggested
Let's contact the AdMech, see if we can go questing for them in exchange for raw hardware which we'll need soon.
Contact the AdMech and tell them that we are available for another expedition. Actually, that is the best use of our time we can come up with right now.Also tell them that we are hiring someone to take care of developing the mining infrastructure on our new realm.
>>19764412Indeed it would be an awesome idea if not for shitty GW policy. There is a possibility to do that under different name, but I guess most of the people would be pissed off about that.>>19764829How exactly do you do that? 'Plz geef qest, need xp nau!' won't do, sorry. This is not only a strategy game, but also an rp game, so for my sake you can atleast pretend that you try.Nerial comes to your cell:>Sir, I don't think that they really got what you wanted from them.
>>19764845Roll d100 for available missionsRoll d100 for available mining specialists on Nestorium
rolled 44 = 44mining
rolled 5 = 5>>19764877I mentioned something earlier, so let me elaborate:"Greetings to the red priesthood. We have, on one occasion asisted you in an exploration expedition, to the benefit of both sides. We hope to repeat this endeavor, preferably even more succesfully than before. In short, we find ourselves with some time on our hands and we hope to use that time to perform another expedition with the Mechanicus.We are also hiring an expert(or a team of them) to aid us in building the mining industry on our newly acquired realm"also rolling for missions
rolled 92, 66 = 158First one for missions, second for specialistsAlso we should probably actually talk out our discussion with the Nestorium Adepts. "Blessings of the Machine God, servants of the Omnissiah. The Ghosts of Retribution bid you good tidings, and would like to discuss another joint venture in the sector."
>>19764942Nothing personal but thank the god emperor your rolls weren't taken sergeant
>>19764919With sadness Regon replies that at the moment Nestorium can provide no mining specialists that he would consider worthy of serving you.>>19764936>>19764942However he is more than happy to answer your question about joint missions:>At the moment we indeed are in need of Space Marine help. In a month we will be transporting a shipment of valuable samples to the Teutoburg system in Subsector Dominus. If you could spare us a ship for the escort to defend against pirates, Machine Council would see that you are rewarded. What exactly would you like to receive for this mission? (it would take about 6 months there an back)12 months left
Do you want Mormark to have moons?Roll d3 for the numer of moons you want it to have, or just say 'none'. Also you can name them. Criteria - what imho suits Mormark and it's culture best.
rolled 3 = 3moons are nice
>>19765054Actually you can roll any dice up to d5
>>19765065Any names for them?
Moons: Cyra, iamar, Badr
>>19764981We agree, let's Leave Morbid and Interimus back at Mormank and send the rest under the command of Berthorius, along with 300 marines, 10 techmarines, 10 apothecaries and support personnel(navigator, astropaths, etc)We ask for equipment to defend ourselves with, vehicles, stationary weapons, city-sized void shields, anything of that nature
>>19765144Also, invite them to build an outpost in our system as a show of good will and friendship
"Regon my friend, we would be glad to assist you in securing your shipment. After all, friends must be willing to help one another in these uncertain times. The Ghosts of Retribution value this friendship highly, and as such, we will send three hundred of our finest to ensure things go smoothly.""In the spirit of further cooperation, I propose that while my brothers are assisting your transports, you look into establishing a permanent mining outpost on Iamar, the largest moon in the Mormark System. It is likely rich in raw material and we would be happy to provide assistance in the set up of the base. What say you friend?"
>>19765155>>19765144Sry for triple post, but just a note - make sure to equip the fleet we are sending with boarding equipment.
Uhm, does the planetary governor of mormak still hate us because we ignored him last thread=? I think we should invite him to try and clear this out before the invasion. Maybe send him a letter:Lord Regent Kerius Dermont of MormarkIn my function as Chapter Master of the Ghosts of Retribution i hereby ask you for an audience of grave importance. I wish to try and restore the earlier trust between the Chapter and the government of Mormak, and have therefore decided to fully inform you of the threat we see coming for your planet.Then tell him about the eldar prophecy (which we mostly ignored, because Eldar, and because there was no confirmation, and we play it down, we say it would be a grave danger, nothing about certain death) but that lately we had... disturbing news from our intelligence department that the late warp incident had been an attempt of a nebulous "Enemy" to establish contact with our world. We need the PDF and the chapter to work together at peak efficiency if we wish to overcome this threat.Also, send someone to investigate the ruins that our librarian discovered under our chapter fortress. If we are still in contact with the admech, ask them for professional personal. We have sealed Dark age ruins, that should hook them.
>>19765236>>19765155>>19765144[Diplomacy - passed]>Dear friend, your proposal is more than generous! We will send some prospectors to Iamar as soon as we return from our mission to Teutoburg. I will speak of your generosity in front of the Council and personally make sure that reward is generous. Shall you come with us, friend, or you will send one of your men to command the mission?Once you decide how do you handle this mission, roll d100 for it's success.
Lord Dermont, I must humbly apologize for my recent conduct toward you and the state of affairs in general. I have recently lost brothers dear to me in a series of tragic events and it has grieved me deeply. However, the Emperor's work is never done and there is little tome to spare for grief or strife between his servants. Therefore I write this letter in the hopes that we may work together in defense of this Imperial world.(more coming)
>>19765306Change ruins to sealed vault with proto gothic runes. It will interest them.
rolled 9 = 9>>19765317We have much to do on Mormank, so send our first captain.Let him take the forces I wrote earlier as well as anyone else he feels will increase the success of the mission.Tell him that it would be of great benefit to the chpater if he could capture pirate ships should they attack. It would be especially good if he could capture them with relatively intact crews and cargo, hiring people to run those ships takes time and money.
My brothers and I are strong but few in number and relative strangers to this world. Your men and women were born and raised here and know the land. We are fully committed to defend not only our Fortress monastery but also every civilian life. I am currently negotiating with the Adeptus Mechanicus for defensive weapons and shielding for use in your cities if you will allow it. My plan is to make the cities to costly to assault so that the hammer stroke falls on the Tombstone. We may be responsible for this impending doom and we will bear its brunt.(more coming)
>>19765353This sounds rather reasonable.
I would ask that my captains and I be allowed to attend any strategy meetings between you and your generals that we might defend this world in the most effective way possible. I look forward to your reply. The Emperor Protects.[Corrupted Data]Chapter MasterGhosts of RetributionThought for the Day: Heresy Grows from Idleness
>>19765306>Uhm, does the planetary governor of mormak still hate us because we ignored him last thread=?

However in the end your arguments force him to change his mind.>I must say, that I feel hurt, by your actions, marine. I thought that we were friends, partners. But it seems that you are just like the rest of them. You see me and my people only as mortals, something to use when in need, but not worthy of respect. I will work with you, because I need you. But you will have to do better than that to make me trust your words again.
>>19765456Did he not see my letter!? stupid munitorium mail service grumble grumble...
Summon Nerial to our quarters."Nerial, these are dark times and we need allies. I need you to send a message to all our allies, The noble Imperial Fists, the High lords, and any true servants of the Emperor that would come to our aid. Say that our need is great and time is short. Also, I need you to make inquiries about the Fated Chapters. See what you can find and contact them if possible. Update me with any news."
Sons of the Emperor and our Brothers, it's with immense humilty that we, the Ghosts of Retribution, have to ask you to return the favor we once have done to you.A great danger is coming toward sector Deus, and despite having the Emperor's blood in our veins, our chapter is still young and, I have to admit, inexperienced: we aren’t ready to stand against such a menace (whose nature is still mysterious), and I fear that our courage won’t be enough, this time.We ask for your help in these dark times: your experience is well known in the entire Imperium, and it would be a honor for my brothers to fight alongside such legends, learning from you the art of siege and defense.The Emperor protects,[Corrupted Data]Chapter MasterGhosts of Retribution
>>19765338>>19765306Regarding the vault - Adeptus Mechanicus promises to send you a team to check the vault as soon, as they establish themselves on Iamar.>>19765353Brethorius leaves the Mormark with the Chapter fleet. >I hope we will not have to fight, my lord, but if we will - we will return bearing gifts and glory.>>19765323>>19765373>>19765406After you send this letter, you receive no reply. You almost start to worry when the door to the hall opens and Kerius himself enters. His grim scarred face reminds you of a weathered Leman Russ tank, with two gun-holes, scanning the room for a target. He stands in front of you and looks into your eyes. Despite him being a mere mortal and a lot smaller in size, you get a strange feeling that he is looking at you as if you were below him.>Marine. I am not a man of beautiful words, I am a soldier. But these I have to tell you this, while looking into your eyes. I want you to understand. Long ago, under a distant star, I held gates of Kastarhan for three days with nothing but a company of toughest bastards I ever knew. Three days of blood and pain. My men died like heroes.
>>19765739>Then, when we almost won, they came. Ultramarines. Literally descended from the sky on top of the last enemies. Just in time to collect all the glory. And that's not the worst thing. They treated us like shit. We, common men, have but one short life, given for us by the Emperor. And we choose to sacrifice it, paying the highest price there is. But those pompous bastards though that we were weak. That we were nothing, but cannon fodder, "mere mortals" they called us. It's good for you to speak like that, when you are no longer humans, when you can crack bolt rounds with your teeth. But we fight our battles with nothing but bayonet, flak vest and guts behind it. I will tell you the truth. I hated Space Marines. In my eyes you were scum with no understanding what is true honour and sacrifice. Then you came. I took you in for the sake of my people, but then started to genuinely like you. You seemed to be different from the others. Honest, caring, humane... I even considered you to be my friend. Then you betrayed me. I can't even start to describe how I felt. But this... This letter you sent. It makes sense. I really hope that you mean what you said there. I will grant you one more chance. But heed my warning. Fuck with me once more and I'll kick you out of Mormark with my own combat boot. Friends don't do that to each other. Now come here!Suddenly Kerius rushes at you and hugs your chest(he can't really reach higher). [Relations restored]
>>19765468He did.>>19765748>>19765739--->>19765627Nerial nods and responds:>What exactly should we ask from our allies? Because if they don't know what are our enemies, they might wonder how they can help us...>>19765732You send this to:+Imperial Fists+HLoT+Nestoriumright? Also, help from High Lords will cost favour
>>19765797Actually, my letter was for the Imperial Fists, dunno if the others want to send it to someone else
rolled 92 = 92>>19765772Despite his iron soul, Dermont is just a human. Space Marine hugs can sometimes be lethal to mortals...
Voting for sending it to Nestorium and the fists.
>>19765846FATE POINT TO SAVE HIS ASS
>>19765847second. but edit so it sounds like we are talking to them not the fists. mass mailings are unprofessional
>>19765846>>19765846>>19765772Oh, god, my sides, that's so fucked up.
rolled 16 = 16>>19765846I didn't expect so much. Ok, it will be lethal if this roll is also above 90
Well, the dice gods don't think Dermont has kicked enough asses yet, so he just get a mild heart arrest that Klementhos with other Apothecaries manage to take under control. However he will spend next month or so hospitalized...
map of Mormark finished.Nice of you to name one of the moons in Prinius' honour.
>>19765930BAHAHAHA THE FUCK
>>19765984Prinium's*So, you wait for Brethorius to return or do something in the meanwhile?
These are the absolute best images I could get with my shitty webcam.
And a better view of the emblem.
>>19766066Delicious. + 1 Fate Point
>>19765996Make sure to visit him in the hospital and apologize.There is also the matter of our initiates, let's get that started. We have 155 initiates and 95 wealth, we can probably spend 80 or so. Is that good, bad or dirt cheap.Spend our time performing training, attending meetings and training our psychic stuff.
>>19765996My two cents: spend this time practicing with the pdf, so that when we'll need we'll be able to work together at maximum efficiency.
>>19766088When founding a new Generation basic armour and weapons costs 1W per initiate. Also, the more you infest, the better chances they have to survive, be stronger, smarter, etc. Also remember, that you have Raven's Tome, if you would want to use it.Dermont just smiles, he can't speak yet, but as his kill-trooper don't open fire on sight, you think that he forgives you.
>>19766133Well, fuck, let's have them training and going through the preliminary stages.Hopefully, the expedition will get us the wealth we need and taking extra time to prepare will also increase our chances.Make this a high priority for the apothecaries.
>>19766162Roll for training. As I understand, it's all under Klementhos supervision, right? Also, here's a link to Raven's Tome if you would decide to use it http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Raven%27s_TomeFurthermore, there is a reply from Imperial Fists:Chapter Master,In your darkest hour, Terra hears your call. Your messafe indeed is unclear, but we are not known for abandoning our allies in their hour of need. We send you full three squads lead by Leutenant Sternberg. They should arrive to you as soon, as treacherous warp will allow them. Good luck and have Faith in the Emperor.Chapter Master of Imperial Fists

We will be working on organizing and coordinating our people with the PDF and training during the timeskip.Also, we need to have a word with xyptus.
>>19766680This would be Skill(Tactics). If you want, we can rename it combat, but imho it's too general.>>19766719You don't know anything about Xyptus' whereabouts.What do you plan with local PDF? Also bear in mind, that Mormark has around 4 Brigades worth of proper IG.So, have you decided on 3 xp spending, or maybe you want to keep it for something bigger? It will not go away.
>>19766757>>19766716spend on that
>You don't know anything about Xyptus' whereabouts.That's ok, we are not exactly in a hurry(unless he is working on betraying us right now and I hope he isn't), so let him know that we wish to speak to him next time it is convinient to do so.We should get the opportunity to give him the message eventually.>What do you plan with local PDF? Also bear in mind, that Mormark has around 4 Brigades worth of proper IG.just perform training and get them ready to fight. Focus on defending the cities around here, we will deal with anyone going after the monastery.>>19766716yeah, sure, let's go with that.
>>19766757cooperate with Dermont's generals to work on static defense and covered retreat drills. Try to get the IG to spread out to give the PDF some backbone. also have marines train with soldiers and teach what they can. build fortifications around major cities and stockpile supplies in underground bunkers/tunnels. use marines as rapid reinforce units for shoring up lines. See about logistics of moving production facilities underground and rapid evacuation drills for civilian population
also vote to have joint operaton training with brethorious and kermont as field second in command
>>19766828All he said, plus we should train in joint operations with the PDF.

Flexible approach means, that his soldiers will be deployed in the open, ready to move and will be a lot more likely to suffer heavy casualties if the enemy attacks their positions. Also, the cities will be undefended if the army will be away, fighting enemy.Finally, you receive a message, that Brethorius is returning to Mormark...

You think, that if you would try very hard, you might be able to do that yourself.Brethorius finally returns to Mormark, victorious but grim.>Milord, we were attacked... But not by pirates, as we expected, but by Sisters of Battle. They demanded me to give up the techpriests, but I told them to go worship the Emperor. They opened fire, but at the time they did see only one of our ships, but in a matter of minutes others arrived. We decimated their defences and boarded their ship. Soon they forced to surrender. We took 2 ships, 450 sisters and over 11 000 crew prisoners. We knew, that there should be no witnesses to this conflict, but they were servants of the Emperor, so I wasn't sure, what to do with them.

>>197679562 months until the invasion.Adeptus Mechanicus sent a group of Techpriests to start a small outpost on Iamar and to bring you reward. As the task proved to be a lot harder than anyone thought, they agree, that reward should also be greater. What do you ask from them in return?
rolled 46 = 46>>19767956It feels like we are the Blood Ravens. It is a good pain.Also, rolling for Willpower, as we exert our psychic power to the utmost limit to find out how the fate of this particular man ties into the greater conspiracy that threatens not only our brothers, but Sector Deus and the Empire itself.
>>19767996a titan to be statuioned on mormank, for the invasion...
Is there any way we could fortify our fortress more in the time we have left?

>>19767996How good are our pdf and IG equipped? Seek Dermonts advice in finding out if there is anything the AdMech could grant them to increase their chances on the defense.Otherwise, can we convince them to send a regiment skitarii to guard the dudes working on that vault? We have solid info that it might get dangerous on mormak, we dont want the admech to loose personal.
>>19768053> in a surprised jump, we tried to escape the plane of divination, and back to materium
>>19767996We sell the SoB vehicles to the AdMech, apart from the Rhinos and the Land Raider.
>>19768110AdMech offers you 45 Wealth in total.

Decide and roll Charm.>>19768066Are you sure you don't want to delve deeper? Next time it might be even harder.
>>19768053Shiiit, what could that mean? I get the feeling that by helping faceless we are not really on the right side of the battle...We should instruct our marines to keep an eye out for betrayal, and... maybe send our librarian with them? If we have a chaplain, send him too. We need to watch out for corruption....
>>19768186hmmm by the time we delve deeper later on, we will have more wp for this things, my opinion is bail the fuck outta compton>>19768187toldya.jpg
>>19768186We accept the 45 wealth.We break off our connection.
Can we try to lay out the emperors tarot for the next time? You know, with all mumbo jumbo and ritualistic (incense everywhere, prayer in the direction of terra, carpet the floor with holy scriptures, draw a ritual circle) lay the tarot for the rotting man we have seen. If we ritualize this the fuck up we might be able to counter the wp minus.
>>19768240OH, and if we have a sister corpse we could write the scriptures and the tarot cards in her blood. Worked for the Grey Knights.
>>19768187Please note that Faceless =/= Hooded figure. Hooded figure is more like advisor/master to the young noble, standing behind him.>>19768240Emperors tarrot is 100% safe and very powerful tool for divination. However getting a deck of Tarrot cards is a hard an expensive task, becaus each one of them is a relic in their own right, because each card is made out of psycho-active materials and inscribed with nearly invisible runes of power.
>>19768253>>19768240i will keep in mind when we do this next time
rolled 70 = 70rolling charm for warhound titan pack
rolled 18 = 18roll to try and get some heavy artillery
rolled 51 = 51>>19768305We should definetly put aquiring a set of tarot cards to our middle term goals. But i doubt it would be much use before the invasion, so we can safely postpone this.Also i AM for trying to charm the AdMech into sending us troops and supplies for the Imperial Guard of Mormark. Thats what i am rolling for.
I think we should try and contact the Grey Knights.Losing an entire Chapter would be a devastating loss, I'm sure the Grey Knights would take an interest, although with us or against us I have no clue.
rolled 77 = 77rolling to get us some snazzy forts
When do the imperial fists arrive. I imagine they could upgrade our fortifications
>>19768365> although with us or against us I have no cluethats a big if right there anon
>>19768379Thing is, if it's with us or against us, they'll try and preserve as many marines of ours as possible, which in truth is what we should strive for.They can't declare the entire chapter heretics unless we roll a 99 or 100.
rolled 22 = 22>>19768320>>19768345>>19768361Rolling.
Who are we going to fight again?
>>19768394darn thats a hard roll
Contacting the Grey Knights is a really Bad Idea. They only concern themselves with Demons, and we dont know what will attack us. Also, they might just kill us for being an unsanctioned psyker, who is also a chapter master.And if they get seen they will try to purge IG units, which would make our planetary governor throw a massive shit fit.
I think we should employ the Vindicare.Think about it, no matter WHO we face there are going to be leaders, Vindicare would be able to kill them easily at a distance, while surviving very easily.
>>19768420we sanction now>oopenj bookkeepertime to visit the library
>>19768435never heard of vindicare winning against tyranids
>>19768451Synapse beasts.Vindicare target them, causes confusion and chaos.
>>19768447Well, but not officially. We might have the emperors protection, but we havent been trained and tested by anyone. Also, we still buttfuck the Codex Astartes by being a psychic chapter master.
>>19768468Wasn't Kyras of the Blood Ravens a psyker anyway?Then again that's dawn of war.
>>19768391Feeling lucky, punk?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIxas0a-KgM>>19768394Two dozens red-robed Machine Priests come into your hall and give their respects. Magos Architectum Archeomedes, the mastermind behind the Tombstone, comes forward and bows:>Fabricator General Regon sends you his deepest respect, milord. We came here to announce that after almost three centuries of slumber Nestorian Legio Titanica have been once more awakened for war. You have time and again proven us that you are ready to shed your blood for the Omnisiahs cause and because of that we grant you three honours.From the group, a Princeps in brightly coloured clothes comes forward:>Legio "Nomen Emperoris" is on the move, my lord. We serve in the Emperor's Name.Another one, seemingly his twin brother also steps forward:>Legio "Honoris" may be small, but our Titans fight with Honour. The last Princeps comes forward in slow, menacing steps:>Legio "Lux Mechanica" will fight at your side. Only with the Light of the Machines shall we prevail. We are making a planetfall in three weeks.
>>19768420Alright.I think we should send an emissary to the Grey Knights, saying that we MAY be under assault by warp forces in the near future.If we do not get hit by warp forces, we simply send him again and say "Sorry" but IF WE DO, then we may have a powerful ally on our side.
>>19768505No way dude, the GK will slaughter any humans, and mind-wipe any astartes they come into contact with.
>>19768519Who says we have to call upon them at the start of the battle?We could have them as a last-vanguard, could we not?The Grey Knights are powerful enough to warrant our attention, are they not!?
>>19768484"We, the Emperors Angels of Death, are honored to fight alongside the Omnissiahs greatest servants, the God Machines of the Adeptus Titanicus. With this there can be no doubt. We will prevail in the coming storm. The Enemy will find only death on the fields of Mormak. For the glory of the Omnissiah and the Emperor!"
>>19768391we have 99s more often than you think >>19768464possible>>19768484>>19768464> give imperial salute, and mechanicus salute"your presence has greatly honored me, thre Principes of Nestorium, I swore, as long as we exist, mechanicus will be forever our friend, family and ally, unconditionally, Ave Imperator""Nerial, all officer ready for strategic meeting?"
>>19768538no. let's not call upon the GK at all, they don't owe us anything and we don't have any favours to pull with them anyway
>>19768538no, they grey knights in the area are under faceless' control, and want to fuck us senseless, we don't want anything to do with the grey knights
have our battle brothers dig in deeper around the fortress. Dig trenches, run barbed wire ect.
>>19768594Really?I need to catch up.>>19768591They want to slaughter demons, why can't they?
>>19768538nope, unecessary risk, gambling is something we cannot afford friend, 20 threads has been passed and whenever we gamble something, 90s 90s everywhere>>19768573LOL
>>19768538Well. We know one of them, that should count for something. But Grey Knights are absofuckinglutely merciless when it comes to hunting down corruption, and we are really really pretty corrupt. And the planetary governor will rage Against the heavens if they try to purge his guys, hes fiercely protective of them.On the other hand we might gain respect with the Knights, that might take the edge of Faceless' threats against us. It could be worth it.
>>19768403Our chat. http://cbe005.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.netAnswer is simple - we do not know whom we fight.'>>19768447You decided that building Librarium is too expensive.>>19768435You don't have any at hand, but it might be a good idea.Titan Legions have arrived:Legio "Nomern Emperoris" = 16 TitansLegio "Honoris" = 4 Titans(All of them Emperor Class veterans from Ionian Crusades, last Titans from the times when Saint Belisarius founded Sector Deus)Legio "Lux Mechanica" = 37 Titans1 month leftD-Day -30
uh guys? What if this threat is the greyknights?
Holy shit. So MANY TITANS. You know what would suck? If the eldar trolled us and there is no invasion. The look on chapter masters face would be glorious.
>>19768638I honestly doubt it.If they were we'd be dead already, or considered heretics by everyone.
So is there anything else we should roll for?I think the GK may be counter productive, however the guys for it offer some good points.The Vindicare guy has a point, if we need someone important to die, they'll die if we have them with us, (Examples being someone like a Chaos Lord, or a Sorcerer)I think we have enough Mechanized support for the moment, we may want some Psykers with us though.
>>19768662on the other hands, that divination might said something about the threat
>>19768690>Examples being someone like a Chaos Lord, or a SorcererSIIIIIIINNNNNNNNDRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
>>19768636If the leaders of the Titan legions accept, we should continue doin joint warfare trainings with all troops on the planet surface, and continue digging in. Also, it would be nice to hear how work on that Vault is proceding.
>>19768698It may.But it still wouldn't hurt to contact them at this point, just to warn them that we may have Warp-enemies coming soon.We need the strongest of the strong, and we've got the mechanized, but we haven't the infantry.
>>19768731we got 4 brigades of IG broseph, and 700 marines + 4 squad of imperial fists
>>19768562>Your words make our heart implants work faster, milord. We will stay here for one year and no enemy shall threaten this ice.Kerius Dermont clenches his fist.>>19768574>Indeed they are, milord. All of our allies are present and accounted for, except for Leutenant Sternberg and his Imperial Fists...>>19768659Never trust xeno pussy.
>>19768739And how many Psykers?
>>19768636Oh, and relocate our astropath choir to the best defended position on the planet, or turn the choir building into the best defended position if they cant relocate.We cant afford to loose contact with the rest of the Imperium. Should we fail to stop the enemy here we need to warn the rest of the Imperium of the impending attack.Also, someone should start writing an epic motivational speech. Just sayin.
>>19768745>Never trust xeno pussy.my sides..."start the meeting immediately""gentlemen, my sincere thanks for gathering here, my special thanks to Lord Regon and Lord Dermont, now, i need opinions on what doctrine should we use and also suggestions on tactics and strategies"

>>19768851What about Psykers?
>>19768745Take Dermont to the side, talk to him alone:"Dont think what i just told the princeps invalidates the vital role your men will play in this conflict. Its just that i noticed that people love motivational speeches. And i fancy myself being pretty good at doing them. Dont worry, the PDF and Imperial Guard get the next one."Do this in a meeting break i'd say.
"By the Emperor upon his holy throne, Bestowed upon me, His grace and mercy, the all knowing, all encompassingMen of Imperium, we are in the time of great peril, of unknown and uncertainty, of darkness and strife, of endless war in every front.....Blessed are those who has joined at His side, eternally serving the Emperor.Men of Imperium, after this is done, you will face a true test of faith, to defend imperial realm from great adversary...but don't lose hope, fellow Imperial citizen, for one who lose hope, what stops one beside them to also abandon their faith to the Emperor, and stop fightingWe might not live to see our fight bear the fruit, of peace and contempt, but worry not, for you will die for a cause, and it is not a lost cause, in this time of darkness and strife, there is always...HOPEAVEIMPERATOR!"
>>19768754Tombstone?>>19768790Everyone wants to share their opinion, but you can't get much use out of it, because no one knows what to expect(imagine that war room is our chat).>>19768871Distributed among the regiments. Ratio about 1000:1. Would you like to gather them in separate regiments?>>19768882Dermont nods his head in approval. "Nothing will motivate them more than an Angel of Death.">>19768890Your speech motivates entire Mormark to deeds of glory and heroism. Even logical techpriests shed a tear. Families spend their last money to buy true flowers to give their leaving sons, as a sign of good luck and fortune... No one wants to think now, how many of those flowers win end their days in empty artillery holes and bloody sand.I need a short break now.
So, anything else anyone think we should get?
"Men and Women of Mormak... Your world is in danger. Yes, YOUR world. By right of settlement, right of blood, right of conquest, this world is yours. Your ancestors have settled in this icy hell, they have carved a living out of its tundras with their own blood, they have defended it against everyone that tried to take it. They have proven their strenght. And their blood, their Strenght still runs strong. We, the Ghosts of Retribution know this best, for it is the reason we choose this world as our home.We haven't been here for long, but we will fight with all the power the Emperor has granted us to protect, not this world, but you, people of Mormark - for your strenght is the greatest treasure this world has.And we shall not fail.
>>19769002Astropaths into the tombstone please. Best defense possible...Then wait and see. Oh, and i think we should move part of our fleet into a nearby asteroid belt. Like, half our fleet. It might help out a lot if the enemy space forces are so massive that we cannot defend the planet. We can pull out better and secure the way for reinforcements. Or hit them in the back.Also, update on PreGothic Vault plox.
>>19769077As you finish your speech, Synius approaches you from behind. >Lord... Xen... Your friend hasn't lied. We have a signature in the warp, approaching system. It will be here soon. At the moment doesn't look like anything serious. No more than five ships, if it's ships. How should we prepare for their arrival?(roll d20 when exactly the enemy is expected to arrive)
>>19769050Well going back to what the Vindicare guy was talking about.If we are facing Warp enemies The Culexus Temple will be a MAJOR asset, and by major, I mean three of them could fight off demons faster than GKs.The Vindicare would be great for as he said sniping out leaders and high priority targets, both vehicle and infantry.Callidus Temple, not so much.Eversor Temple would be good for final ditch attempts with defense, or for targets Vindicare could not reach, and forces could not be spared.The Vanus Temple would be good if we needed allies during the war, very good.We really should contact them.
rolled 3 = 3>>19769161
rolled 7 = 7>>19769161
>>19769179This is good right?
send astropathic message to forge world. tell them : "5 unknown ships approaching through the warp. If we do not send another message in 24 hours, call the guard."
>>19769172I think we are decidedly too late. also i am not convinced space marine chapters even know of the officio assassinorum.>>19769161I go with hiding part of the fleet in an asteroid field, they could go stealth mode and try to ambush the enemy. All ground troops full alert.
>>19769233Nah, the Chapter masters would easily know.And the Vanus Temple is the only one we may really have trouble with.Although it does seem we are too late, lets see what the dice have in stock for us though.
>>19769050Last night with a woman, bottle of bear with honey and some Tchaikovsky. Ofcourse that's personal pick.>>19769148'Half-fleet' is not specific enough. I need ship names, they have different stats. also, please state who commands the fleet and how many marines(if any) are stationed onboard, ship ship is armed with cyclonic torpedo, drop pods, etc. System mapRed = asteroid beltsBlue = MormarkGreen = other planetsGrey circles= Inner System, Outer System, and Edge(first one is red, because it's also asteroid belt.X = possible entry point by the enemy
>>19769249>>19769233Anyway, I think we have enough time to quickly contact the officio assassinorum.Just someone else roll, my luck is worse than Luigi's.
>>19769293Where can i find our fleet register? Also, are there still admech ships sticking around?
>>19769148>Also, update on PreGothic Vault plox.There is none at the moment. I don't remember if you sent anyone to try to open it at all, to be honest. Please give more details.>>19769172>>19769179Enemy is expected to arrive in about 72 hours. A little too late to call help from Terra.(it was d20 days)>>19769340Wiki -> Current Chapter status, in the useful links section on the front page
>>19769340Ok, found it.I'd say Kentauros, Interimus and Destiny set up an ambush by hiding in the asteroid field surrounding the outer planet. Should the enemy fleet prove to be superior on first glance (ie, 5 battleships) they should fall back and retreat with the rest of the fleet. Also they should try to slingshot around the planet while stealthy if the enemy passes them. Then they engage while the enemy attacks the main force.
>>19769396Could we ask the Forge world as said here: >>19769228 to ask for their help?
>>19769396I thought we got send some ad mech explorators to open it? WELL, we didnt technically give them the go, but i doubt they were just sitting twiddling their tumbs for 3 months. Give them a small marine escort and have them work their magic. Whats inside that vault might be vital for this war effort.
Just because, have the orbital defense batteries on full alert. Probably shouldn't need to be said, but you know.
>>19769431>>19769228As requested, you sent out the message through Nerial, however... Roll d100>>19769461Techmarines were setting up their base on Iamar, they had plenty of work there(and still do). However if you will ask them, they will try to open the Vault. Roll d100.>>19769405Everyone agrees? I assume that none of the marines/machinery are located on the ships, only their crews, right? Who commands them?
rolled 12 = 12>>19769504Roll.
>>19769522The Vault is impossible to enter. Techpriests cannot even understand what exactly is written on the gates... They claim, that without a linguistics expert and the best thief in the segmentum they will probably won't make any progress towards opening it. Or a very slow one... Might take months. Years. Decades, even.>>19769501As you command, BrotherIsaac, all the batteries are loaded and ready.
rolled 57 = 57>>19769593I was rolling for the message.
>>19769603Also, disregard that roll.It was by accident.
>>19769603I see. Well, message went out well, however Nerial feels, that the warp is getting 'thicker' with each passing minute...
>>19769635Sorry for not specifying, my fault.When may we hear back from the Assassin Temples?
Broadcast to all Imperial forces in and around Mormark:"Ghosts of Retribution! Men of the Imperial Guard! Forces of the Omnissiah!We may be different in history, in loyalty, in occupation, but soon, we will all be Brothers in Arms. We shall fight as one, we shall die as one, and we shall make our stand here, on the Imperial planet of Mormark.All we know of our enemy is that it seeks the complete destruction of everything on this planet, it will be our duty to disappoint them! They want humanity to fall, but I say we will not fall quietly! We will fight to the very end, we will fight them on the highest mountain, we will fight them in the lowest hive, and we will NEVER give in to the inhuman will of the enemy!For we are humanity, for thousands of years we have ruled this galaxy, and only by great sacrifices and great efforts can we ensure the Imperium of Man and rules the Galaxy for all eternity!LET NONE OF US FALTER!LET NONE OF US FAIL!LET EVERY LAS-ROUND, BOLT AND SHELL SMITE THE FOES OF THE EMPEROR!FOR WE ARE THE MEN OF THE IMPERIUM, *AND WE SHALL KNOW NO FEAR*!FOR THE IMPERIUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

>>19769734I didn't specify what the message contained, I merely said >>19769431 rather vaguely I admit that we should ask the Forgeworld to ask for the Temple's help.Vanus in finding the enemies weakness and gaining support, Eversor, Vindicare and Culexus temples for offensive and defensive measures.Do you want me to specify a message?
>>19769734>Forgetting that /tg/ is auto archived.Haha.http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/19764338/#q19764338Also, we didn't do the Vault roll again.
