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!
I'm still betting on chaos, as they are the only major enemy that uses the warp in this fashion. Eldar, dark or not, use the webway, the nids use geansteelers, which we do not appear to have on our planet. And the crons have nothing to do with the warp
>>19860363Crons are closer to anti warp I thought
cursed flood detection
>>19860377 correct, but they don't travel through the warp at all. they travel bu making newton go cry in a corner
>>19860418to be fair 99% of 40k makes physics go cry in a cornernot that it stopped me from enjoying things
>>19860304As always, I strongly suggest listening to epic music, while playing this quest, be. A couple of suggestions:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsNlhUxwGjUhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBYrMEW9-Rw---A friendly tip from GM - we have entered a stage where Chapter is facing Total Annihilation scenario. Be smart, read posts carefully and think outside the box. And never forget, that EVERYTHING is connected in some obscure way. Well, if you fail - it was a good run and I am glad we made it this far.---Another note regarding the gameplay during this part of quest. This is a battle, no - a campaign, of terrible proportions. We are talking Krieg, Vraks, Armageddon here. You are supreme commanders of Allied Imperial Forces during the Siege of Mormark with millions of troops under your command and dozens of generals.This is an experiment that I really wanted to do for a long time - running a real full scale war campaign in 40k setting. Never before I've seen this done anywhere, so I am not sure how it will work out, giving so much power to players, but I hope for the best. However if you will feel that it's too hard for you or if I will see that you cannot handle it, we can always go the route of assigning a random general to deal with large scale actions and you will continue doing space marine stuff. However I put a lot of effort into it and hold fingers crossed that it will work. Ave Imperator!
>>19860477Well. We are playing SPEEHS MEHRINZ! We are the CHOSEN OF THE EMPRAH! We shall not fail! Besides, we have the Strategic Girth, only our luck isnt very great.

>>19860632>>19860564Finally, after years of waiting, it seems that the prophecy is coming true afterall. Every countdown eventually ends and sins of the past come to haunt the Ghosts. Hundreds of data screens in Imperial ships, war rooms and intelligence headquarters all across Mormark suddenly come to life. Painstakingly slowly, machine spirits print green letters in front of your eyes:[Thread detected][Codename assigned: W R A T H]+Position: Edge of system+Type: Spacecraft+Numbers: 1(?)+Class: Super Heavy Battleship+Visual feed: Unavailable atm+Affiliation: Unknown[possible matches of energy signature]:=Human: 72% match=Eldar: 7% match=Tau: 28% match=Necron: 49% match=Ork: 0% match=Tyranid: 0% match+Combat Power: Unknown+Integrity: Unknown+Current course: Towards Mormark along the 34'2 trajectoryBrethorius looks at you with his eyes wide open."Brother... It's just a single ship! Can it be, that it's the Invasion that we all were waiting for?"You hear thousands of lips murmuring, sharing their thoughts, hopes and fears with each other. Even Space Marines, despite their discipline start wondering what all of this means. Brethorius turns to you and touches your shoulder:"Milord... Let's crush them! For the Emperor, for Imperium! Let us send everything we got at them and destroy them! They've got no chance against our armada!"

It seems to be inactive.Finally, you receive the first pictures of the mysterious ship. It is of titantic proportions, in your whole life you've seen only a few that could rival it in size. Eldar was right, it indeed reminds you a little bit of gigantic leviathan of the stars, a god-sized vessel, that can crush whole systems just with his presence. It's design remotely reminds you of the Imperial ships, the forms, ornamentation and grim gothical architecture. However there are no Imperial marks or statues on it, except for some runes that have no meaning for you. Someone who has spent more time than you in the library recognises them, however:"Milord, I think those letters are Proto-Gothic! This ship must be as old as the Imperium, if not older!"Suddenly, Captain Moebius calls out:>Sir! It is confimed, this ship is of Terran origins, Pattern: Unknown, but we... What!?

>>19861047>Your ground defences have very limited range, only enough to protect your planet from planetary bombardment. They would be of use, only if you would lure Wrath Warship into the Mormark Orbit.Actually fighting that massive ship with just our fleet seems pointless, so park the fleet behind the moons to protect them from its superior range. Once the ship is in range, we can attack. Just make sure to focus fire on one section of the ship, we want that part cleared of point defences

>>19861023The ship tumbled toward the center of the system, a slow and graceful, if not tragic course. Chunks of it spun behind it in tow. the entire thing was barely holding together. A Goliath class Factory Ship, brought so low. In his time as overseer of the vessel the Magos had seen no less then three dozen space marine chapters outfitted for war from these once glorious halls. He silently drifted thru the steel carnage, exposed power conduits sparking silently in the void, mangled bodies mixed in with the debris. He would have wept if the need for emotions was still present within him. it was not. There was only purpose and an objective. That was enough. Subsystem reporting went down over a week ago, and emergency power was fluctuating dangerously. He made repairs as he went on what would matter most, they were not the kind to be proud of, or to be praised by the Omnisshiah. He had found over two dozen still functional servitors and slaved them directly to his own cognator, using them as extensions of himself.----1.75 months left of 3: ship survey complete. 245 servitors, 15 adepts surviving. Deceased rendered into nutrient paste as required. Repairs underway to docking engines. Failure to stop spin will result in ship tearing itself apart. Ship comms intranet restored to 85%. Primary reactor cores: down, Secondary Reactor cores: down, Tertiary Reactor Cores: Missing. Ship did not detonate, suspect sabotage.

>>19861324It is a good thing, that Space Marines need no sleep, however the boredom and inactivity on the part of the enemy is killing you. Then, Seran, your new Master Techmarine, approaches you:>Milord, I just received reports that former Adeptus Mechanicus ship is once more on the move. Sir... I believe, that they managed to repair it. In a few days. It's impossible, but they have done it. And I believe that it is now hostile to us. From now on I ordered it to bear designation Wrath-2. Both of the ships are now moving towards the remnants of Interimus. What are your orders, lord?

Tacitarius puts on his Skull helm, and picks up his old freind, "His Will" The eviscerator is proportioned for a space marine, and blessed with holy oils. He Vox's the commander."My Lord, I volunteer to lead the boarding action, as do Terminator brothers Arcturus, Nangthok, Gorial..." He lists the names, as haunting images of battlefields past flash across his mind. He was the emporers weapon, a tool for war, a holy priest who would sacrfice xeno, traitor and heretic alike for the will of the greatest of all men, who did descend into the warp to battle the foulest of demons. His blade had sent countless souls to feed the lord of Terra, and he would send more today. Thousands more, if it were approved."...Dannicus, Valconey and Corial.

ChapterMaster [Data error] says to his council: "I think our best bet is to lure it in range of our OD batteries and hit it with everything we've got. If it wants to sulk around in the outer-system, let it. After all it's not like there is anything there we care about, and every day should bring reinforcements closer. "
>>19862653Only during next strategical turn, in a couple of weeks. Shame that you never bothered to recruit proper scholars.>>19862648Btw, Berserk, as you drew us this awesome pic, I grant your Chapter one more Chaplain. You have free reign to name him/give him backstory and his views also you can distribute 200 points among his skills(no more than 80 in single one, however)
>>19862707>>19862707ok, can i have 80 in kicking a battleship in the balls? jokes aside, i guess Korgat's post will be his profile (good lord 2 chaplains in chapter?)
>>19862739>>19862618Do we even have terminator armor?Also Give him 80 in space combat.
On the note of not having proper scholars, would probably be a good idea to round up any intellectuals planetside that can be spared.

>>19862840Princeps Ferron was an Imperial officer of the best kind. Intelligent, loyal, of noble birth, not too arrogant and caring about his men. Tonight Moderatii Askeus celebrated his 45th birthday, a very nice age worth of a good party. However, as Princeps wasn't too shy about drinks, soon a time came when he needed to go outside to 'check his Titan' and make place for some more fuel. As Mormarkian night cold started to bite at his sensitive parts, Ferron once again thought about how much he hated this freezing hellhole. Well, the only upside now is that they are here at least just for show - if navy boys do their part, Titans will go back home without firing a single shot. And if they fail... Well, who could be stupid enough to want problems with half a hundred Imperial Titans? Princeps laughed at his own thought and zipped his pants. Suddenly, he noticed a shadow in the dark. "Who goes there? Kcernus? Is that you?"Principes tried to look closer, but suddenly, a dark figure emerged."In the name of the Emperor, what the h..."Ferron silently fell down into the snow , his throat cut before sounding the alarm. However the creature, on purpose or by accident, wounded him in such a way, that he lived long enough to see dozens, no - hundreds, of dark mechanical figures appearing from the shadows and like a dark wave attacking the Headquarters of Legio "Lux Mechanica". Before taking his last breath, Princeps heard alarm being sounded and saw Titans, mighty warmachines, exploding, burning, turning on each other... Then Emperor took him away from this tragedy.---700 miles to the north, Brethorius rushes into your cell and shouts out: "Lord! They are here!

Tacitarius breathed deep of the hearts heavy smell, before biting deep. Blood ran down his painted face as he feasted on the malice of a dark eldar. He washed it down with Amesac, before begining on an Orks liver, its stubornness. Around him, other soul rippers were performing similar ritual consumption, bolstering their souls with the essences of worthy foes, slayed by their own hands and preserved till such a time was needed."Sir". Tacitarius turned to see a marine, Teregulas, offering him the head of a grot. Its face was painted half blue, and its brain cavity was open."This is Ritchit. He was the lucky charm of Warboss Garbak Mawlord. Eat of his brain, take a fill of his luck."Tacitarius looked into the grots cold, dead eyes. A mist poured off of it, as it had yet to fully thaw."Thank you, Brother, but I'd prefer not to eat of that Gretchins luck."

A terrible explosion shakes the foundation of the Temple and 15-meter sized statue of the Emperor falls down into the street, crushing a fleeing Chimera. Dozens of troopers open fire upon the terrible monstrosity that is hulking thorugh the streets of their beloved city, however their shots are like insect bites - irritating, but without effect. Heavy Wrath droid belows something in it's machine tongue, releases a few rockets at the machine-gun nest in the Temple's gateway and rushes forward, chopping Imperial soldiers to pieces with it's mechanised power blades. It steamrolls all the garrison within the Grand hall and then turns towards the Altar of the Emperor. It's calculating mind thinking about how to melt it and convert into ammunition, when a figure appears in the doorway. Machine immediatelly identifies a threat and charges forward, knowing, that no lasgun or autogun can take it, when figure lifts up a bolter and blows out it's circuits, silencing the metal beast forever. Or at least until the next one comes and reassembles it. Harmantos looks with sadness at the burning city and turns to his brothers."The city has fallen, we are late. Tactical retreat is neccessary. But we will return... And we will pay them back. No one escapes Retribution."Arnstad fell. Army Group Mace is decimated.Seven Cities bonus lost.

>>19866480Ok, that's it for today. Now I would like to hear your opinions on this modified type of gameplay. What's good/bad? Are the posts coming too slowly? I am going to archive this now.
>>19866504It's not particularly to my taste, but overall I enjoyed it.Many thanks again Skargan, keep on rocking.
>>19866519So for the rest of the invasion you would prefer leaving the course of war for the random generals and stick to doing space marine stuff, right?
