Your eyes open and pain races through your veins, engulfing entire body. With a grim irony, you notice that you once more wake up in captivity, this time - chained to an operating table. Every inch of your body hurts, as a reminder of your fight in the arena, however something feels different, but you don't realise it yet. You try to focus your vision and then you see a smiling grin of your captor. Wytch looks as beautiful as when you first saw her - no scars, no broken nose or crushed bones. Must be some xeno-sorcery, no surgeon could heal such damage so quickly. She smiles at you with eagerness of a child that knows he is about to receive a present. But she is not looking at you...
With horror, you realise that your chest is open in a crimson-red display of flayed skin, muscles and meat. Xeno surgeon appears out of the darkness and smiles at you with two rows of razor sharp teeth. He turns to Wytch and hisses: "Operation is a success, milady! Subject responded well to our treatment, it will be a good and enduring plaything. I hope you will remember our deal..."She looks at him with a slight disdain and spits out:"Yes, I might mention you to the Coven once I have nothing else to do... Now finish patching him up, I can't wait to enjoy him. Oh, look, I think he blinked. Can he understand us already or do I need to speak his dirty tongue?"With horror you realise, that they are not speaking in Gothic. Xeno surgeon nods as if taken by the fever. "He should, brain activity seems to be stable. Or maybe he's just catatonic."Wytch turns to you:"Do you hear me, mon-keigh?"
Reporting Brother!>>20007831>Nod silently.
Whelp, we're gonna die.Nod and look for something sharp. Can we move our fingers?
>>20007831Provide name, rank and serial number. Nothing more.
Wasn't here an IRC you guys had?Can you repost that? This is getting interesting.
"Good, very good! Do you have a name?"---Our wiki: http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Commoragh_Quest#Inventory:Our chat: http://cbe005.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.netYou have 8 unspent xp points.
>>20007937You can move your fingers, but you are strapped in X pose and there are no tools near your hands. your neck is also fixed to a table.
Brother Blastwavius reporting in, lurking from my phone.
>>20008034An 'X' pose?!So we have a left arm?!
>>20008056+1 Intelligence for noticing before I told you myself. Yes, you feel strange, new muscles stretching from your left side. Stump is no more, you have an arm and your total health is restored to 100(btw, you can use xp to upgrade it too)>>20008053Hey, Blastwave!I am away for a few minutes, Luigi, please post your Rage trait idea and decide how do you spend 8 xp.Also, you haven't answered the question that lady gave you.
>>20008253Okay dokey.My idea for assigning the XP, was 2 each on Body, Perception and Willpower, and 1 XP on both Charisma and Intelligence.Also my 'Rage' trait idea is:Whenever we can see Sister Judith and she is on 50% health or less, Montus gains +20 for all Body/Willpower/Agility rolls, and -30 on all Intelligence/Perception rolls.
>>20008253I propose to spend those points on endurance and stuff like that, we'll need to be a living tank
>>20008306I like this, but I think we should make it unrelated to Judith... Something we can turn on whenever we need to, a sort of "righteous fury"
>>20008332http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Commoragh_QuestMontus' statistics can be found here.Spending XP on a characteristic gives you +d5 in that characteristic.>>20008253>My name is Montus.
>>20007973Also, to the witch: "yes, I have a name."
>>20008332I propose a full offensive/glass cannon or stealth/agilty build, to make things more interesting.defense characters in quests are too common. survivability, okay, but it can become kinda boring.
I think we should consider to start acid spitting. If they didnt remove our glands. Cant be the first Space Marine the DE have captured.
>>20008306>>20008369Luigi's idea is harder to apply, but it works well. Cost for this trait would be 3 xp.Also, a variant of the same trait that isn't related to Judith:Berzerker:Once you are below 50% HP, you gain +10 to Body, Agility and Willpower based tests, but you get -15 Perception, Charisma and Intelligence tests. = 3 xpAs you may notice, this variant is a little bit weaker than the one tied to Judith, because it will be applied more often.Also, I only now noticed, that we have not yet generated Agility, please roll 2d10+30
rolled 10, 5 + 30 = 45>>20008479rollan
rolled 4, 9 + 30 = 43rolling on the river
>>20008479In that case, my personal vote is for the 'rage' trait I proposed, as well as using 2XP on 'Body', 2XP on 'Willpower', and 1XP on 'Perception'.
>>20008425You try releasing some acid, just a tiny speck, to test your theory, but all that comes out is a thick ooze without any acidic properties. It's good, that you decided to test it before using it to escape.>>20008479Oh, and you can double effects of this trait by paying additional 3 xp, if you wish. Also, the one regarding Judith works only if you know, that she is hurt, if DE are raping her in the dungeon somewhere where you can't see her, you have nothing to rage about.---Wytch frowns, then turns to disgraced Homunculus and asks him:"Csvakshek, does he look to you like Montus?"Xeno surgeon tries to give her the most ambiguous look possible."Yes, I thought so too. How shall we call him? Nakram, Shizragh, Greixat... Nah, all of these are boring. I'll call you... Kunt! Csvakshek, he looks like a Kunt, doesn't he?""Ye... Yes, milady, he does.""Well, Kunt, do you like your new name?"She seems to be quite proud of herself.
my vote is for berzerker, I hate situational powers. I agree with Luigi about how to spend the other points though
>>20008525I vote for this, but for the Berserker trait insteaod the Rage trait
>>20008525>>20008492any other votes?Agility added.Csvakshek seems to have finished closing up your chest and is making last stitches to hide you innards. You wonder what else did they do to you during that operation... Well, you'll probably have to find out the hard way.
"You may call me what you wish, Xenos."

>>20008646"It hardly matters at any rate."
>>20008649aw shit, man. That's it, next session is back to the fight for Mormark, just so that I could use this pic of Chaplain stomping Men of Iron and shouting "No grave shall take us!"
>>20008649Also as always, I would like to reward you with some little token to show that I really care. Please, tell me your wish and I will do it to the best of my ability as GM. just no 'Rez Emprah plz', sorry.>>20008600>>20008593>>20008525Decided.

Csvakshek, can I try it out already?"Deranged pain artist just nods his head and gives her some small round object that she inserts into her palm."Release!"Chains holding you detract and you fall down on the floor. You are still a little bit weak, but you are free!"Come here, Kunt."She seems to think that a single half-mad Homunculus and a few knives are enough to make her safe in your presence.

>>20008902We gonna seduce us some dark eldar bitch?
>>20008817>>20008799Wytch licks her lips:"He looks delicious... Csvakshek, leave us. Or no, on the other hand - stay. I want you to watch, afterall you should see how well your device works."Dark scientist makes the creepiest smile you've ever seen."Yes, lady Xynthia, your word is my command."Wytch approaches you without any fear and on her way towards you takes an evil looking syrnge from the table. Somewhy, you don't feel the usual tension in the muscles that always accompanies preparation for combat, something is wrong..."This should get you started!"She smiles showing you the syringe and enters hands reach.

>>20009045>>20009195Well fuck me sideways. Emperor must have his eye on you.You are in complete control of situation regarding Xynthia, you can kill/maim/take hostage her whatever the way you like.Csvakshek has failed to react to stop you from whatever you are going to do to her, but he will get a roll to defend himself if you plan to attack him next.If you are(and you most likely are) trying to kill her, he will try to warn you that you don't want to do that and if he sees that you are not listening, he will try to jump behind the desk/columns/some kind of cover.Hall is about 15x15 meters, there are two entrances and four 5-meter narrow gothical windows from which you can see Commoragh, you are most likely somewhere high. There is no glass in the windows or any other barrier that you can see and they are wide enough for you to pass as if it was a door.What do you do?
Grab Xynthia in an iron gripWalk over to Csvakshek holding her"I suggest that you explain precisely what has been done to me, or I shall find out why you're so nervous about her dying."
>>20009324question, dear xenosanother human, female, fragile looking, where is she? > while holding her hostage, keep closing in to that damn homonculi, block him from exit
>>20009324THAT FUCKING BITCH HAS LINKED THE BOMB TO HERSELF
I'm actually thinking maim. We need someone to point us in the direction our cute little nun. One DE is as trustworthy as another, after all.
>>20009324Break the Wytches neck, ensuring she does not die, but is completely unable to move.Ask the surgeon what he did to us, and tell him to reverse it or they all die.
fucking snap her neck
>>20009390>Break the Wytches neck, ensuring she does not die, but is completely unable to move.>Break neck, ensuring she does not dieFYI, breaking someone's neck will more often than not cause a disconnection of the lovely nerves that allow the brain to regulate breathing.Generally, this kills the Eldar.
Voting to break her arms and legs, you guys cool with this?
>>20009422Xeno physiology, I ain't gotta explain shit.Fine, just break her legs and arms then.....
Place her in the restraints after snapping dem arms and legs, beckon Csvakshek over, making it perfectly abundant that we will murder him if he doesn't come over."Now you will fix what you have done."
>>20009441YES.Remove the arms and legs, patch them up, carry the foul xeno around like a backpack.
Alternatively, we have the good doctor here remove her heart, and keep it beating with his crazy Haemonculus magicAnd the same with her head, head in a jar for us to carry around
>>20009434either brake or dislocate. Don't care which.
Voting to secure her in the restraints that we were in and keep the syringe for later use! We can break her arms/legs if people really want...We then have the surgeon explain what he did to us. If he changed our bomb to go off when the Wytch died, we have him undo it on HER end, via cutting HER open.We might give him a merciful death or just secure him, depending on if he'd be willing to help us extract information from the Wytch or any other DE we can capture for information...
>>20009357>>20009365>>20009375>>20009377>>20009390As it is a tie:2 take hostage2 maim1 undecidedI will assume, that you stun her by slamming her into the ground, then you force her under you and threaten Csvakshek to tell what he knows. At least at the moment she seems quite harmless, but if you decide that you want to maim her afterall, tell me. Also, Blastwave nailed it.---Xeno sorcerer hisses at you:"Modifications, yesss... There were numerous, but the most important was in your chest. Lady rejoiced when I detected explosives. She requested to add new modifications regarding explosion catalyst. I know only one thing for sure - when she dies, explosives activate. Maybe when I die, they activate too. Yes, most likely when I die they activate. She put in the conditions into the machine herserlf, I was just a medical advisor, but I noticed that there are now total of 9 conditions on which the bomb explodesss,,, Knowing the lady, I would say that at least one of them is 'when Kunt smiles' or something else completely irrelevant. She likes mind-fucking her playthingsss."
>>20009553"Very well, she will remain alive, as shall you. I trust you can disassemble her whilst still keeping her alive. Isn't that what you vile chirugeons do for a living?"
>>20009553The funny thing is that I am much more willing to die laughing as I bring her death in a way there is no coming back from than live in her servitude. Foul Xenos wench, I would suggest that you inform me of the explosion conditions.

>>20009634Why?For the Emperor, that's why, you traitor scum!
>>20009679Actually, as this is probably a futile xenos bluff I second this.
>>20009525Drug added to inventory, Xynthia strapped to the surgeon table, still stunned. Regarding undoing things on her end:"Mon-keigh, I don't deal in primitive technologies, that activator was a proper Dark Kin work of art, it works on the mutual resonance principle, both devices emit waves that check the life signature, they are identical, except for the fact that if you die, her end releases a stream of endorphins to inform her that you are done. Regarding the conditions - I know of 4: -distance from primary subject-death of primary subject-death of secondary subject(Xynthia)-death of tertiary subject(me)"Roll a secret roll.
>>20009723stop samefagging bro
>>20009595agreed. Also inform him that he is to call us Montus. "I assume command detonation is another condiction?"
>>20009731Not samefag, but as OP has just given a fair bit more information on the workings of the bomb its obvious that it's not a bluff so I rescind my vote.
>>20009731Person who originally posted the suggestion to cave her skull in here - it's not me samefagging, someone else just supported it.Paranoid Zeddeus gonna be paranoid.Anyways, it doesn't mean we can't break her arms and legs and carry her around with us so we don't set off the proximity condition.

>>20009817Cutting off her limbs would probably be more efficient. We would be like a 40k version of Chewie and C-3PO.
Let's make sure she can't move her hand by the wayI assume the fact that we snapped her arm like a twig would mean that is the case?
You have failed by 6 points your Perception for Scrutiny roll to determine whether Homunculus is lying. With such roll you have strong suspicion that he us kying about the 4th condition - it doesn't seem that Xynthia valued him too much and he might just be trying to save his ass from being raped by space marine fist. On the other hand, Dark Eldar are wicked and cunning cretures, you never know.>>20009831Primary subject is Sister Judith, Hospitaller Sororita, for those who haven't followed us before.Our chat is here, to avoid samefagging: http://cbe005.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.net"Other modifications to you body were synth-meat artificial limb before the real one grows, white-noise decoder set for Dark Eldar tongue, but it was a cheap model, so it will slowly drive you insane, also she ordered me to increase the testosterone output in your body even above current levels... "
>>20009906Break his neck. I doubt the 4th condition is true. Then get to work on securing Xynthia.
>>20009999this seems a little dumb and unneccesaryvote to veto
>>20009906"I'm looking for someone taken by a raiding force. How do I locate the group responsible and where they are keeping the subject?"
>>20009906"How slowly? And what will be the effect of increased testosterone?" "furthermore, where is Sister Judith?"
>>20009906>How long until the real arm is finished?>How do I remove this DE tongue decoder?>What are the long-term effects of the testosterone increase? How can I stop it?>How do I remove/disable the device within mine, or her, chest?Answer me truthfully, and completely, and there's a chance you may live yet.
>>20009858Csvakshek looks at the syringe with glee."Oh, it's a very potent combat drug, meant to enhance physical performance by up to 60%..."Xynthia is still stunned from your terrible attack, but she hears and aswers you:"Silly mon-keigh... You amuse me. My life is guaranteed by the Wytch Coven. You kill me, you die. Then, I am reborn, my flesh is cloned and you turn to dust, whatever 'missioon' you think you might have is over. The truth is simple. You cannot escape. You cannot win. You may kill me, this freak, dozen or even a hundred of my kin, but the truth is that Dark City has no mercy for those who weren't born here and you are helpless like a baby... But you have brute strength. And primitive, animalistic cunning, that makes me wet. This can go two ways. You kill my current form and win another half an hour to live, before the Razorguard catches up with you. I suffer some mild pain and a great disappointment for a wasted opportunity. Another way is you amuse me in return for me helping you stay alive for more than a night in the shadows of Commoragh. You seem to have that brutal spark in you that can give this city a shake or two that we haven't had in the last couple of centuries, it'd be sad if it would end up in a gutter."Xeno seems to continue act defiant... How shall you punish her? Or will you listen to her vile proposal?

>>20010157There has to be something left of you for them to bring you back. I can break every single one of your bones and dispose of you within the fire of a spacship. Tell me the rest of the conditions to the bomb.
Violently insert your fist and arm into her rectumRepeatedlyDark Eldar bitches love that shit.
>>20010169No."Really? Then detonate the bomb. I cannot imagine you did not put in a command detonation option. Unless you are worried that you loyal and faithful subordinates will find it more convient that you stay dead? If it were even possible for you to be revived in the first place under these conditions, which I rather doubt. After all, if death were such a minor inconvience, why bother with a dead-man swich? I mean if I am as valuble as you say, I doubt you would want me to die by accident if you fell down the stairs or something."

Who's Jidith?">>20010047"Real arm will be finished in a few days... That is if I will survive long enough to seed the samples. I think lady wanted a fully able plaything for her games. Decoder was inserted into one of your sockets for augmentations on the spine, they are primitive, but they work. You can remove it manually, but bear in mind, that if you will want to take it out, it might affect your mental state slightly each time you plug it back in. Device was not designed to be removed, I performed operation to the best of my ability. However homunculus of higher skill than me might have a chance."
>>20010157"Mild pain? I feel quite underestimated. But this 'shake'... If it allows me to fulfill my mission, I may be persuaded."In times of great need, the enemy of my enemy is my friend."Tell me more of these drugs. Do you have one that might heighten her sense of touch or pain? I believe that she was just about to tell me how she can find the captive I seek."

Battle left-overs make process quicker, but they are not neccessary.">>20010259"Dark Kin does not simply fall down from the stairs. Well, I haven't tried how the bomb works and because of understandable reasons I do not want to. However you can kill me easily. If your ego is more important to you than your survival, mission or whatever else that you managed to cram into that small skull of yours, then stop wasting your time and kill me. Or would you like me to mock you some more before you do that?"
>>20010339"The leader of the immediate group I seek had his face melted moments before I removed his arm and ended his life with it. They battled power armored human females at the webway entrance."
>>20010396She smiles:"Deal is simple. You will be branded and bear my mark. This will allow you to mingle with the crowds of Commoragh without being killed or enslaved instantly and will even grant you some minor privileges, as much as a slave can have here. In return you do three things - obey me, amuse me and sow that beautiful chaos that you are so good at among my enemies. If you prove worhty in my eyes, I might even consider buying that slave you seek for you or finding information about his whereabouts."
>>20010506*Point at surgeon*>You, can you remove the device that joins us from this Wytch.
>>20010506Done. Anything for Judith.
>>20010506The only one of those I can promise is the third one. It just seems to happen around me. I can not promise to amuse you and there are things that take precedence over my obedience to you. Also there'll be no "considering" finding Judith, you will find her and you will not harm her in the least.
>>20010506"Your offer must be kind, though I still find it lacking.""Csvakshek, was it? No drugs to increase one's sensation of touch?"
>>20010574"As I told you before, I have done all in my ability to make it impossible to remove. This means, that you will need to find someone better than me to do that. Unless you want it to detonate as soon as it leaves your flesh...">>20010603"So it's SHE, right? Interesting... I bet I would make myself a good name breeding more of your kind, brute. Regarding your options - don't delude yourself. You are extremely lucky that you've met me, few of my peers are so corrupted and twisted like me to try to speak with lower species. If you want to use the privileges of being my slave, you'll have to act like one. Well, at least you will be sure that I will use you for better things that morning torture seances or remaking your skull into a cup. I am not going to limit your freedom in any way as long as long as my needs are satisfied, for all I care you can roam through Commoragh from the Dark Bay to River Khaides and beyond. If you will live up to the expectations I have for you, maybe there will even be a place for you in my schemes and that would eventually lead to your freedom... If you would ever choose the greatest city in the Universe, that is."
>>20010873Well I can't guarantee any success in breeding me, and by that I mean it won't work. Sure, I can work with this. Also keep any torture you happen to perform on me to the superficial kind, we both know it's in your best interest to do so.
>>20010619"Well, bearing in mind how hard it should be for your primitive articulation apparatus to spell my name, I might have something, but it's down in my laboratory... Would you like me to go fetch it?"
>>20010873"We seem to agree upon general terms, yet we will likely not agree upon details. I propose a contest of wills. Should I be victorious, you locate and purchase the one I seek before I do your will as ordered. Should you be victorious, I will do your will as ordered immediately. You must still locate and purchase the one I seek, for I -will- find a way to make you regret any wasted time. No drugs or chemicals are to be used, or I'll end this partnership here and now.""Do we have a deal, or shall we end this here and now?"
Ok guys, I am really tired, let's call it a day. Overall it was a nice session even if it was mostly a diplomatical stand-off, we get 3 xp in total. Also, anon who will archive this will be blessed. Thanks for playing and good night!
