Ave, bellum fratres!What shall we play tonight?Will it be Commoragh Quest, where we scheme how to assassinate rival Wych that wounded our mistress?Or shall we try to save the banner of 2nd Company in Chapter Quest? Also, Titans!(Brothers guarding it are more than likely to be dead by the time we swing the tide of battle)
I'll vote chapter master
Keep /tg/ free of shitty quests quest.
>>20150646Yeah, real Latin sounds a little strange, but I love it anyway. In other news - Brother Luigi provided us with yet another wonderful article, this time on Brother Sarkos...http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/SarkosI'll be honest - I couln't have put it better myself. Also, this is the 10th article by Brother Luigi. As a show of gratitude, I am honoured to award him with Merit of Librarian. It is a real pleasure to read your work and use it in my games. If there were more men with dedication and skill such as yours, our wiki would become a a real book. May your autoquill never jams!
>>20150917cool. I'll probably start writing myself once I have less on my hands. nice idea, Skar, Luigi deserves it. My favourite of his:298. Apothecary Dosmen - Intercepted Wrath Missile that threatened to strike the stack of geneseed Apothecaries had collected during the battle.from http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/The_Book_of_the_Glorious_Dead
got bored last night so decided to draw the insignia for the sisters of battle, sorry for the shitty quality
>>20150977stop eating my name captchaalso, better pic
>>20150917the power of the autoquill can never fail us...come to think of it just WHAT is an auto quill some sort of pen?
So Chapter master then?
>>20151008>>20150977Cool, Mort. Check the chat for reward. So we continue with Chapter Quest then, right?Our chat: http://client00.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.net
>>20151073It's whatever your imagination wants it to be!Yeah....probably a pen.
>>20151111Why do we need the chat?It's not as if this thread ever hits the bump limit anyway, not to mention /tg/ is slow enough for this thread to last long enough for the thread to last even if it did.
>>20151142some people like to socialise, you fucking asspie
>>20151142It helps us agree on decisions much faster, which is useful as is quest frequently goes past 3am.
>>20151168Just a question, that Luigi answered more finely than yourself.
>>20151142Skargan also has a habit of taking anything in the thread as canon. this has gotten us killed and possessed before
>>20151142It's a lot easier for me to clarify and give additional information within the chat. Also it gives the possibility to coordinates actions more easily, before the chat I had to pick at random or highest roll posts. Quality of decision significantly increased and because this quest for me isn't just for the lulz, I support it. However non-chat anons are also welcome to play, but I must warn you that I guard contributing players like a mother bear guards her cubs.---We shall begin in a few minutes. Chapter Quest.
>>20151191And don't forget almost killing a buddy with a power hug.....
>>20150646I'd say chapter quest let's try to hijack that titan
>>20151192>>20151175Well, that is a pretty good reason for that then.I'm just a relatively new player, so I hope you can forgive me.
I see that you got an own wiki. I should try to catch up with the quest and maybe try to write a short fan fiction story.
>Xynthia have bite marks on her tits>nobody offers to analize the wound with power of Sphees Muhreen-tasteFAGGOTTSGAY HOMOFAGGOTTSSS!good job into avoiding derailing the quest into a massive fetishfest though.
>>20151265Fetishquest is bad, mmkay.
>>20151206No worries, dear anon, we are very friendly bunch, and if someone is not friendly, just report them to me, he'll be sent to Friendship Camp no. 309. Also if you have any questions/requests - direct them at me.>>20151238Hey, Brother Plecto, I don't want to say it's bad luck, but I think there was a brother by that name who died on the battlefield. Short stories are always welcome. If you want to make them canon - please tell me the rough outline for what you want to write about.---Ok, as I am already late to start the thread, this time - no beautiful introduction. ---You are in the cockpit of Wrath-assimilated Titan "Imperator Invictus". Beneath your feet lies a slain foe - enemy Commander AI and in your right hand you hold your new weapon - Ironhaunt, that you ripped out of the cold grip of your enemy. In front of you there is former group of Titan operators - Princeps, Moderatii, etc. who have been corrupted and modified by Men of Iron to serve them. They are now nothing but drones, responsible for controlling the Titan. Down below, battle rages between the forces of Wrath and remnants of 2nd Company. What do you do?
rolled 43 = 43>>20151326Take control of the Titan V.I.A the Commander A.I's former position.
>>20151326order them to stop all current orders, or at least stop firing, our first priority is to save our brothers.
>>20151326Was the Battleforce A.I controller of the entire Titan brigade or just the one Titan?
>>20151337(I'll take your roll as Intelligence roll)You realise, that AI Commander was most likely giving command to the Titan through mind-link interface that was earlier used by Princeps Superior. You can try to plug into it, but it might be dangerous, you are not sure what happened to the Machine Spirit of "Imperator Invictus" - it might still be inside, but caged, or Men of Iron could have replaced it with their own brand of Abominable Intelligence.
>>20151361How do you order them? You can either:+Plug in+Try to override their programming through cogitator+Kill them>>20151384As you do not have Lore(Technology) or Hacking skill, your intelligence roll remains too low to understand for sure.
>>20151424What are the dangers of plug in?
>>20151424Override the friend-foe identification system to make the assorted wardroids enemies but don't fully plug in.
rolled 53 = 53>>20151424attempt to halt all current attack and movement orders through the cogitator
>>20151455At best - headache, at worst - mindwipe or getting trapped inside a mental prison for some crazy AI to play for all eternity. Pic related.
>>20151326I had looked at The Book of the Glorious Dead and it seem that Brother Plecto didn't died yet unless the book are not updated yet. And yes, I will contact you if I want to make a canon story. Now I will check at the archive to see what I had missed.
rolled 35 = 35>>20151463Rolling for this.
>>20151476You try to engage in a dialectic battle with machine spirit interface, but it keep ignoring your requests for taking over command. You curse yourself that you didn't listen more to Prinium, he could talk hours and hours about the wonders of Omnisiah. May he rest in peace. (roll failed, you may try it once more with Intelligence -25 roll, but if you will fail once more, it will lockdown and even plugging in will be a lot harder.)
>>20151585When we get out of this we're going to have to learn SOMETHING about technology, last time it got us killed and this time it's losing us men.
>>20151585Can we find our way to one of the weapon arms and manually aim it at the MoI?
>>20151750Dissagree, fate point reroll.
>>20151952Use one of our fate points to reroll the check we just failed. Preferably before a ton of MoI board the titan and gank us
>>20151980If we are to use a fate point, we may as well use it when plugging in.
>>20152054Supported. Assuming direct control.
Ok, I defeated the foul fiend that tried to suck out my soul and I am back with you again. So what are your actions?Manually aiming Titan's weapons will required very hard strength checks - you'll have to move machine parts that weight multiple tonnes and you'll have to find them first.What do you do?
>>20152499Plug in, assume direct contro using this roll>>20151572
>>20152499Think that 'fiend' was sucking something else, Mr. Skargan.
>>20152499plug-in and assume direct control over titan, we are become death, destroyer of worlds.use the 35 from earlir
btw, it should be fratres belli
>>20152568>>20152559You sit down onto the Princeps' throne and breathe in. This might not be the smartest decision in your life, but you think it's the only one that can work in this situation.

>>20153402You cannot, not in this situation. Because there IS a primary user in the system.---You failed your mind initiative roll by default.---Suddenly, doors to the Manufactorum open and three Arbitres come in:>That's it, creep surrender now and you might yet live!What do you do?

rolled 87 = 87>>20153554After you requested transfer of primary user status, system came under lockdown, you cannot disconnect, unless you win Willpower -10 test. Returning into the system will be a lot harder. You have no weapons at the moment, but you think you could create some with your thoughts. They are nothing but fruits of your imagination, true killing power lies in your mind.---Arbitres aim their weapons at you and demand your surrender once more:>We are the Law! You are hereby sentenced to be detained! You shall comply or be destroyed!Then, suddenly, something changes in the manufactorum. Not something visible, but something that is felt. As if something just woke up from slumber.>Sentence changed: Death!Arbitres unload their Peacemarkers at you.What do you do?(roll d100)

However you think that you now feel at least a few concentrations of "power" around you. One of them is to the south, it feels as if it was a library, another one is to the west, it feels like a fortress, and the final one is in the east, it feels like a palace.

In less than a few minutes of flight, you soon notice a huge manufactory, that is surrounded by crowds of scholars that seem to be carrying bundles of scrolls inside and outside of it. There are huge letters on it's front "CENTRAL DATABASE". The gates of manufactorum are guarded by a single old warrior in primitive armour. However you may also try landing on the roof of manufactorum or smashing in through one of the windows. What do you do?

Ofcourse, as you control the operating systems, you may try to break them by force, it would require to win Willpower +10 test, but if you will fail it might do serious damage to the central database and will alert all the other programs.Regarding the primary user... It seems that data list "Imperator Invictus" as the primary user in co-dominion with numerous "outer users" - probably princeps. However it was recently (about 5789439 seconds ago) changed to "Proteus 34". What is it, you are not sure.>>20155077Aww, too much info for one post, will have to continue this next session.
