Down below in the valley you can see xeno aircraft burning with blue flames.Designation: OrcaCrew: 2 pilots, 12 passengers, among them - Ethereal Aun'Skar Status: DEADPrimary mission acomplished.With satisfaction you smile, it was an easy ride, despite a few scratches you got along the way. You turn to your brothers, and look at how they treat their wounds. This jungle hideout should guide your squad for long enough until extraction can be organised. However you still have your secondary mission - finding out what Tau are doing here on Sabria. Asten, the only marine in your group who isn't wounded asks you:>What are your orders, brother Elegion?Your Health: 73%Vecturs: 74%Dilion: 52%Asten: 100%
>>20063058Brother Asten - Explosives specialist - Ghosts of RetributionWields AutocannonBrother Vectus - Loremaster - Imperial FistsWields Long-lasBrother Dilion - Tracker&Scout - UltramarinesWields Lond-lasYour personal inventory:Exitus rifleBolt-pistolMonoknife2 Frags1 Krak
>Dilion, Asten, remain here, if an enemy approaches, remain hidden unless you think you may be compromised, in which case, light them up.>Vectus , come with me, we must try and find a Tau to interrogate.Deposit all the Autocannon rounds at the hide out, Elegion and Vectus travel light.
>>20063102World: SabriaDay: 36 standart hoursPrimary climate: TropicalVegetation: Thick junglesCivilisation: NixInfestation: Xenos, TauInfestation level: Minor, estimated 3000 individual xenos, a few small bases.Primary mission: Eliminate Ethereal in leadership of the operation. COMPLETEDSecondary mission: acquire information how Tau managed to find themselves in Segmentum Obscurus
>>20063121Asten nods in approval of your order, places his hand on your shoulder and whispers, while looking into your eyes:>No grave shall take us. Be careful, brother.Roll for approaching the xeno encampment(if I understood you right). Chance for stealth: 70%
rolled 95 = 95>>20063195Actually my plan was to observe the enemy encampment and ambush a small patrol that we see leaving.I'll roll then for whatever parameters that requires.
rolled 47 = 47Salvage roll, i hope
>>20063214Yes, this roll was for approaching enemy encampment to a distance that you can observe.---As Elegion approaches xeno camp, everything seems to be quiet, very quiet indeed, guard posts are empty, there is no one outside and from the first glance the place seems almost abandoned...What do you do?
>>20063257OBVIOUS AMBUSH IS OBVIOUS!!!!Gently edge back, slowly, gently, like holding a glass butterfly.
>>20063270Then, all of a sudden, you realise why there is no one in the camp. >Vectus, do you hear it too?Your brother looks around and replies:>Yes... Is that? Sneaky bastards! They have surrounded their own base and are now approaching it! What shall we do?A ring of Tau warriors is about a hundred meters behind your back and is slowly closing in. You also think you can see kroot mercenaries, following them at random places, who sniff around every tree so that nothing and no one would escape... Also, further away in the forest you think you can hear low hum of the Tau anti-grav vehicles... If you are going to try to break through this ring, it will be very hard, especially having in mind, that both of you are wounded.
>>20063330Enter the Tau base, look for an insignificant building, small, perhaps some kind of restroom or something, the kind of building that isn't used very much.Break any lights we find, hide in the shadows.
rolled 4, 7 = 11>>20063403As you enter the Tau fort, you notice, that there are numerous buildings to choose from, however as this is a military base, there are no buildings that would be completely insignificant:Baracks x6Command HQGeneratorsArmoury(locked, chance to unlock 15%)Some kind of opening into underground turretsMess HallVehicle BayLanding PadsCommunications centreHowever there are some(very few) guards in the base, they have not yet spotted you... Rolling for the exact number.
>>20063466head for the com center, breach and clear, and see if we can hack some useful data out of it.
rolled 10, 9 = 19>>20063466typo, tunnels, not turrets.
>>20063466We hide inside one of the aircraft in the landing bay.Choose a small aircraft, the kind that wouldn't normally have more than 1 tau in it.
>>20063505>>20063539Even Orca's are not very spacious for space marines, that are supposed to carry a dozen of Tau soldiers, so aircraft that is designed just for one Tau will be impossible for you to hide in. Also please remember that there are 2 of you. Also, there was a suggestion to go to Command centre. What do you do?P.S. There are 11 guards atm in the camp and there will be a thousand more in 10 minutes
>>20063632Act fast, breach and clear command centre, what's inside?
>>20063651Command post, generators and armoury are the only three guarded facilities in the base. To get into command centre, roll d100 under 65 to get in with stealth or don't even roll if you want to paint walls in blue.
I meant the commo shed, not the HQ
>>20063678We have silenced weapons, splat 'em.
my plans for the commo center is to hac it for info, if we cant, send false sightings to confuse the Tau, then frag the equipment to further confuse them, then bug out to the tunnels.
rolled 10 = 10>>20063719An exitus rifle is most certainly not silencedThe silencer required to silence the noise of a weapon with that kind of muzzle velocity would be larger than a space marine
>>20063719>>20063679Yes, communications centre seems to be unguarded, you could enter it easily.Silently taking down guards would be below 80. However then the risk that someone will miss them will go up each minute.what do you do?
>>20063761Well, Vectus knows Tau language, so it might be easier, however you still don't know how to use xeno computers, so it will be a difficult roll.>>20063766Exitus rifle is silenced.http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Vindicare_Temple
>>20063769hit the commo center, hack, false fag, DAKKA THE FUCK OUT OF IT. then bug out to the tunnels.
>>20063829An exitus rifle has as supressor if that's what you mean?But to silence the thing would be like silencing an earthshaker cannon
rolled 80 = 80ROLLAN FOR HAXXORZ
>>20063846It might be somewhat akin to those 'silenced' bolters.>pfft>*BOOOOOOOM*EMPRAHFUCKMYSPLEEEN
>>20063833Please roll d100>>20063846As someone who knows a thing or two about guns, I completely agree with you, that in nowdays it would be impossible to silence such a weapon. However in 40k it is possible, and even fluff states that.>All Exitus weapons incorporate a silencer and a selector switchFrom the link I gave you.
>bolter fire what is essentially a RPG>implying you can silence explosion
rolled 53 = 53>>20063857>>20063901I did roll, and I think I failed it badly LOL. also, can we stop getting all /k/ on the magic space machine rocket gun supressor?
rolled 23 = 23>>20063857Elegion and Vectus move like shadows among the buildings until they reach Communications centre. A single bored Tau takes a few slates and leaves it, he doesn't even lock the door. You quickly get inside and start your dirty work. As Vectus translates you what is written on screens, you try to hack the xeno-cogitator...Rolling for defensive software
>>20063968>>20063857It seems, that xenos have built their infernal device well, it doesn't give you any openings to use. However, you can at least read some of the communications that were going through here. Here are a few important fact you found out:>This base is designated 23, it means that there are at least 22 more outposts like this.>This base is part of project called 'Tsunami', it is detailed as military-research-expansion effort, but almost everything is top secret and you can't access those files>There is something called 'Bringer' in this base, apparently it is connected to the mysterious appearance of Tau in Segmentum Obscurus>This base expects another 'package' tommorow, in 40 hours from now on. Message also promises reinforcements.What do you do next?
>>20064038Best check out the landing padsI have a feeling this "Bringer" may be there
>>20064038Attach charges to the comms panel, prepare to breach the outer wall with a krak grenade, set off charges and escape while the Tau are distracted.
rolled 44 = 44d100 for stealthy approach
>>20064051>>20064053>>20064071I assume, that charges are detonated by remote, that you will activate when you will need.So, do you want to find/destroy/investigate this 'Bringer' or just slip away alive, but with valuable information?44 - for what stealthy approach was this roll, please always specify
head for thhe tunnels with our delicious stolen info
>>20064093Well the way I see it, it is of the utmost importance that we report the impending reinforcements, and information on the number of other outposts, we don't have time to investigate the 'Bringer'.
rolled 79 = 79>>20064131okey dokey
>>20064093the roll was for the investigating the bringer stealthy approach
rolled 31 = 31>>20064131I'm running on the assumption that the tunnels are an escape system.
rolled 26 = 26I AM agreeing on escape and evasion. we have good actionable intel that shit base is important enough to warrant a raid. whatever the tau want, we want to make them not get it,
>>20064152>>20064182You're not allowed to noko your roll, otherwise Skargan cannot tell if people are cheating.
>>20064142You don't know where is that 'Bringer' and what exactly it is, so this action cannot proceed, unless you intend to go checking this base house-by-house.>>20064136>>20064152Anon, please reroll without noko, I can't see your roll.
rolled 37 = 37>>20064190>>20064194sorry, I'm trying to noko to stay within the thread
>>20064182It seems we have tie-breaker.---You and Vectus proceed towards the northern wall of the fort, trying not to get noticed by the guards, when you detonate demo-charges in the communications centre. Tau guards start running around, screaming, all concentrated in the southern part of the base, as you prepare to leave through the opposite side. Suddenly, Vectus holds your hand, listening to the cries of a sergeant.>Elegion, wait. I think they are saying... Protect the "Bringer". It cannot be damaged. Stop, no not stop. Block, that's the word. Block the tunnel. Brother, that thing we discovered, it must be in the tunnel. Let me stay and try to destroy it. I think I will be able to handle those few Tau that are in the base at the moment. It must be destroyed, because if you will not get an extraction in the next 40 hours and manage to report what we have found here, reinforcements might turn the tide against us. Please give me this order.
>>20064255>No brother, you have no idea what this....'Bringer' could be, for all we know you could encounter a Crisis Battlesuit down there and die pointlessly!
can we transmit our findings to the resst of the squad?if yes, transmit and both go to the tunnelsif no bug out and let vectus do his suicide/hero bit
>>20064298>They wouldn't fit it in there, brother. Just think, about what a service it would be for the Emperor if I will succeed. But if something happens... Just please tell my brothers that my fist always stayed clenched and I never wavered.>>20064300Yes, vox-caster allows you to cotact them quite easily.
>>20064353contact others then go to tunnelroll for stealth
>>20064353>I see I cannot stop you, brother.>Show those damn xenos the wrath of the Imperial Fists, may the Emperor be with you.
rolled 22 = 22>>20064367oops
>>20064300Agree with this guy
rolled 40 = 40>>20064353vox the intel with specific instructions to SERE until extract, update them with what we plan, and storm the tunnels with Vectus
>>20064367>>20064370>>20064372>>20064373>>20064383Into the tunnels it is then... You decide, that after your message is delivered, this mission might indeed be worth the risk and turn back to base. As you approach, you notice, that tunnel entrance is guarded by 6 Tau warriors. A dozen seconds and twenty paces later it is guarded by 6 corpses, entrance is clear. You can already hear the hum of Tau anti-grav tanks approaching the base. >Down, brother!Vectus leads the charge into the darkness.Please roll.
rolled 43 = 43The Emperor Guides Us.
rolled 57 = 57>>20064443FOR DAH EMPRAH
>>20064452>>20064459It seems indeed he does. As you go down the tunnels, you soon notice, that they are carved in stone, and old, very old, definitely not built by the Tau. In the crossroads you meet a confused Tau squad, you slaughter them without a doubt, the only one who manages to evade more than one hit from you is their kroot ally, but his beak too is crushed under your armoured boot in mere moments. Finally, you reach some kind of room with clear signs of ancient architecture... In the middle of it, you notice a strange object, that reminds you of a huge bow coming from the floor and extending almost all way up the ceiling, there is a strange field extending from it, that glows bright blue light.>Is it... is it the "Bringer"? Vectus asks.
>>20064598>Webway portal, Vectus, I read about them in my chapters study hall.>An ancient form of warp travel utilised by the Eldar, and now it seems, the Tau.>We have to destroy it, or a million Tau could be here by tomorrow.Attach Krak grenade, cheese it.
>>20064598Called it!"Is that wraithbone?"
>>20064623>Yes, do it, brother, I will cover you!Vectus takes a few of the Tau research containers and builds a barricade in front of the only entrance into the hall, preparing for the oncoming xeno horde that can already hear, going down the tunnels with intent to murder you.Roll d100 to place explosives on the webway.
rolled 23 = 23>>20064693dice don't fail me now!
rolled 23 = 23>>20064693kay
>>20064693>>20064693if we're cut off...perhaps we should jump into the webway before it explodes? Certain death vs Faith in the Emperor to guide us?
>>20064724AgreeingWe're in the ovenBetter to risk the frying pan than just be cooked
>>20064644Indeed it is wraithbone. You could make quite a fortune if you sold it.>>20064704You have carefully approached Webway gate and soon discovered that it has a weak powerfield, meant for protect and shielding from whatever might come from the warp. If you haven't been so lucky, you might have not even discovered it before it was too late. Now you know where to put explosive - you pick a place on the on a nice, important looking crystal that most likely powers entire structure. First of the Kroot mercenaries are already trying to storm the room, but Vectus is mowing them down in calculated volleys, saving ammunition. From somewhere far above, you hear a call to surrender against the Greater Good, second time today. It seems they never learn. Vectus throws another grenade into the doorway, after that they stop offering you piece. Little xenos have decided to kill you and with cold frustration you realise that there are ten times more of them up there than you have rounds. But at least you know that it was not in vain. Vectus turns to you:>Detonate it, brother, now!What do you do?
>>20064724oh, and when we jump in...we grip pauldrons so avoid being separated.
i say we go through it.
>>20064809"The day is not yet over brother! We live to fight another battle! Neither of us will die at the hands of the tau" Grab him, set the charges to detonate 15 seconds after we enter the webway.
>>20064809"We could jump into the portal, Brother! Certain death in His name here or faith in His Light to guide us where we are needed by his warriors elsewhere?"
>>20064843No time to talk dudeQuantum leap time
>>20064843>>20064835>>20064832Vectus seems to be both confused and angered:>This is madness! We are not going to use xeno heresy! And even if we would - that gate is the gate to damnation itself! If what you told me about Webway is correct, then it's a bubble in the warp and when you will blow up Webway gate it will be the same as putting a hole in the balloon! We will drown in daemons! Don't fail me brother, let us choose the right path and leave this place like heroes!
GET IN THAT PORTAL NOW, MARINE!
rolled 24 = 24>>20064906roll to see if draigo(or trollZ) comes through the webway

>>20064906"The destruction of this gate may not destroy the other end, brother. If there are other gates we may be able to locate and destroy them as well!"
>>20064926>>20064942Sorry, you'll have to try better for Draigo/Montus/Khan/other warp roaming heroes. But I promise there is a chance you meet them. A small, but a chance nonetheless.--->You are madman and a fool, Elegion, I hope you know that. May Emperor have mercy on our souls!Vectus throws away useless empty bolt-pistol and dives into the Webway together with you...
