Well, just starting the thread up due to auto-sage. Give me a minute to write up a post.
I had to
>>22686995Why, boner. Why.
You decide to check in on Steak. After all, he's been left alone in the town for a long while now. You walk in by yourself, met only by a lot of screaming and people running into their homes and locking their doors. Some back into corners, but none seem to want to fight you. It must be the hat. Bitches love the hat.You search around for Steak, and wonder where he could have gone, before you smell something. You recognize it, as it is something that Steak seems to be fond of. You follow the scent to find a large building full of intoxicated people.>What do you do?
>>22687022Start Licking the drunk-people
>>22686995It's beautiful.It's just beautiful.
>>22687022investigate as they are too drunk to care...(actually, we should party!)
>>22687022Get drunk with them, show these punks how to party, Tyranid style.
>>22686889Here looking all good and fancy:http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hormissar_Gaunt
>>22687022PREACHSteak is becoming manlier, and nidpowered!symbiotes!Prepare to defend this planet for the hive emps. his word cannot be snuffed out by something like being consumed!
>>22687038>>22687119>>22687070>>22687073RAVE AND PREACH!!!THE HORMISSAR MUST KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE A COLLEGE STUDENT!
>>22686995I. hate. my. life.
>>22687159Awwe but your life be lovin' you!
>>22687159That's okay, Steak. We love you. Vigorously.
>>22687084okay going to bed I'm counting on someone to archive or wiki OP's sayings
>>22687070>>22687038You arrive within the bar. You stare around and notice all the alcoholics. Some are drinking until they collapse. You see one that is attempting to try and drink himself to death, literally Many of them look like Steak. There is only one option left for you.You lick each and every one of them. Most of them are too drunk to care. As you continue your licking, however... you begin to get a little wobbly. You feel strange. One of the men jumps onto one of the tables and begins to dance. It is a drunken jig, not very professional. You know you cannot be defeated, however. You jump on next to him, to defend your honor.>What do you do to counter his dance moves?
>>22687211Breakdancing. Get someone to lay down a beat and breakdance.
>>22687211this shit:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twqM56f_cVo.we have multiple strong legs... we can do this.
>>22687245i agree with the slave
>>22687245I was going to post that!it is called "criming" and is almost as cool as a hormissar.
>>22687321actully win, then have a dance off with the town for control of it. win that, then symbiotes for everyone. also, try beer and other prepared foods aside from sandwiches.
>>22687245>>22687292>>22687321>>22687353You can feel the rhythm. You can feel the beat. Your limbs are a blur. As you dance, all attention is on you. Your movement is quick and rapid, but careful and precise. As you finish, you spin your hat off. It lands on the head of Steak. He was trying to pick up a rather beautiful young woman. He is now weeping. You're not sure whether it's awe, fear, or both.>What do you do now?
>>22687445Walk up to Steak, lick him, cockblock him, and take the woman.
>Hormissaur GauntThere are days when I love you, /tg/.
>>22687445Find Steak another woman.
>>22687463I reject and despise this course of action.>>22687445and sir... please give me that symbiote....PLEASE!
>>22687445use ichor to upgrade steak, he becomes even more manly, (in addition to things like internal adrenal glands and the like) the woman swoons, it's steak implanting symbiote time!also, symbiotes for everyone!
>>22687493I, however love this idea.>>22687492isn't it just amazing?
>>22687495steak is now symbiote powered! feel the hive emp! evolve yourself! become an instrument of his will!
>>22687463Fuck that--take Steak.
>>22687445Lick him, lick her and then advise on a seasoning, telling him to pick up with the absorption.The hive ain't got all day.
>>22687522it feels like i just got a flu shot.>>22687523NOPE TO AD-INFANATUM!
>>22687545>>22687513>>22687495You stare at Steak. You stare at the woman he is trying to flirt with. She is clearly drunk, but Steak doesn't seem to mind, considering he's just as, if not more, drunk. Steak wobbles over to you, and asks you to teach him how to dance like that. You tell him that one day, the Hive-Emperor shall grant him the ability to have just as sweet a rhythm as yourself. You then lick him, and the girl. Another girl runs over to you, clearly amazed at your dancing skills. You expertly spin her over into Steak's hands, grab your hat, and make your exit. >What do you do now?>(When I started this quest, I honestly thought you guys would get yourselves killed. This, however, I did NOT foresee.)
>>22687640symbiotes for all!
>>22687640None of us could have foreseen it. Start pumping out symbiotes for the Hive-Emperor.
>>22687640magic of TG you fucker.anyway i suggest that we have a siege of the town by imperial forces...just to add some combat back in (haven't actually fought since we got the hat.)
What would happen if we were to encounter a telepath?Would we just flock to this telepathic beacon as a reflex?
>>22687640Fortify the town, by building biomass walls.
>>22687695>>22687703You decide that you need to start creating some more symbiotes. Steak clearly seems to want some for himself. You decide that you shall get to work on that when you have the opportunity.Suddenly, however, you hear a noise from outside the town. It sounds like a large creature approaching....>Well /tg/. What type of large Tyranid do we get?
>>22687640bring a keg back to the chimera and get one of our minions hammered to see the effects. Then aquire more transportation, specifically air transports. also why have we not shot anyone recently? Correct this with all haste!
>>22687717... that actually makes sense...>>22687729out of the invaders
>>22687752Why the lovable giant Barni-fex of course.
>>22687752unyuufex. only less accidentally murderous and more adorable and cuddly.
>>22687752That tunneling one.
>>22687752Carnifex, or broodlord
>>22687752Unyuufex? a carnifex with a pirate hat?actually, i would like one of those larger ones that sprout more gaunts (forget the name)... we have a lot of available biomass.
>>22687800Zoeythrope, Hormmissar's ex-girlfriend.
>>22687857............I am torn with this idea.
Carnifex IIIUnyufex IIRavener IJive Tyrant(I pray there is some sort of Jive translator or something so I can write this.)Tervigon IZoeyanthrope ISurprised nobody suggested Hierophant.But is everyone happy with Carnifex?If so, what type of Carnifex? There are so many types of them.
>>22687891She's really quiet and bookish, the only reason Hormissar dated her was because she had massive craniums. Hormissar broke up with her before he got his hat and now she's been following him to try and make him love her again the way he used to when they were both broodlings.> that's the best backstory I could come up with in 5 minutes
>>22687941Aren't Rippers young Tyranids?
>>22687937A Screaming-Killer, but instead of Screaming he beatboxes.
>>22687941Hormissar only gained sentience just the other thread.
>>22687937He's Hormissar's rival, he too tried to find a hat but unfortunately he has acid blasters for hands so his perfect hat melted into a pile of glowing goop. Jealous and angry of Hormissar and his hat, he never wastes an opportunity to try and one-up him.
>>22687937we got an unyuufex, that is specific. but no one wants something too big too soon... you have to introduce it slowly...>>22687963not... not particularly.
>>22687988derp, sorry. like I said that was a spur of the moment thing that honestly sucks. Let's go with the Carnifex.
>>22687983fucktastical.I vote fo' this.
>>22687941And then she got groovy.
>>22687983Going with this.
>>22687963No they are like locust that eat anything remotly edible to get delishous biomass then go the the nearest reclimation pool and jump in.
>>22688041Doctor Zo-Thrope? Oh... oh my god...> GE-GE-GE-GE-GE-GE-GE-YEEEEEAAAAAUUUUHHH! I'M DOCTOR ZO-THROPE, THE ROCK AND ROLL TYRANID. I DO SPOOK!
>>22688041that is no zoanthrope!
>>22687983You hear a funky beat from up in the air. You look up, and see what looks like a rather small Carnifex. What it lacks in size, however, it makes up for with unnecessary amounts of large golden weights around it's neck.When it notices you, it begins to lay down a kickass beat, that echos throughout the town. You see townspeople leaving their homes and coming out, just to see what is making that beautiful noise. The Carnifex looks around, and then walks off. You make a note to yourself to track down that Carnifex one day.>What do you do now?
>>22688141now that the meat is out and about, begin the occupation.
>>22688141Secure this position and delegate a subordinate to get working on producing a stream of Symbiotes.
>>22688141 Your sick dance moves probably left you with a bit of an appetite. Might as well have a little snicky-snack.
>>22688141Imperial guard invasion!
>>22688141Park up the Chimera for the night, start spreading the word of the Hive-Emperor's will and smooth funky rhythm.
>>22688183>>22688225>>22688216>>22688202Hold up guys, first we gotta preach the word of the Hive-Emperor and try to convert them. If they don't listen, then we forcibly convert them. Into foodstuffs.We are a fair Hormissar.
>>22688251Can those dope beats that Carnifex just dropped be considered preaching? We're hungry!
>>22688306just don't eat any of the hot girls.
>>22688336Why should I care? Tyranids don't have dangly parts, do they?
>>22688336Dont roleplay Steak. It takes away from the quest.
>>22688423Plus his word is worthless, sandwich carrying tasty talking meat is his job.
>>22687752>>22688141http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtJlFTo1L6QDa's my DAWG!
>>22688387(I don't mind it that much. I feel like it fleshes out the character without me having to do as much work.)>>22688251As with the first town, you begin your preaching. You tell of the great Hive-Emperor, and his glory. You tell of how he has taught you the true meaning of all. The true meaning of man and Tyranid, for they shall be intertwined into a new species. One stronger and better than before. You notice that many of the civilians flee back into their homes, but some stay out and listen. You decide to that those who aren't listening shall embrace the truth of the matter, whether they want to or not. They shall join with the swarm.>What do you do now?>(I really want to go to bed...but I feel like if I do Hormissar will blam me.)
>>22688455i get it.now back to the story.
>>22688499>daring to sleep on dutyYes he will!
>>22688499those that hid can hide, they will be symbioted in time, those that stay get their symbiotes now, and become productive members of the hive emperor's realm!Hormissaryour goal now to start consolidating power, getting people to join. no more stripmining planets, an empire needs it's lands. soon your great hive-cathedrals will ply the void, bringing his word to the galaxy.
>>22688499Well we're a Hormissar with Hormguardsmen, Gaurdifex, Steak the tasty, Victor the Lictor and now the Hoestealers. What else does a hybrid IG Army need?...apart from a titan and a baneblade.
>>22688499i think he would too.but if you need to sleep to improve your writing, do so.anyways... bring in the gauntsmen.
>>22688599We slapped 'nid bits on the Guardifex, can we slap Titan bits on that Carnifex we saw?
>>22688599Inb4 Hive Tyrant with strapped on Baneblade weapons
>>22688599we started so normal too, with just a group of homagaunts.
>>22688499What's the rest of the hive-fleet up to? Are they taking this world?
Yeah, I need to get some sleep. But worry not everyone. I shall be back tomorrow at 2:00 PM, if not sooner. Not going to keep all of you beautiful bastards waiting like I did today. Keep this thread alive until then.(Also, Victor the Lictor has the memories and experiences of multiple storm-trooper squads, because you gotta love the fact that they can eat brains and absord minds. Also, you guys do realize you still have that hellgun? You haven't given it to anyone yet. Just leaving that out there. I'll let everyone plan that out for when I return.)
you heard the man, lets keep this fucker alive.
I named my smurf account on League of Legends Hormissar, in honor of this thread and you gentlemen.
>>22687245How the hell do his legs do that?Wow...I am genuinely in awe.
I think we need a Tervigon, for easier symbionting. Termagants at will will help. Also, if we can give it that ability that gives its spawn the weapons of the tervigon itself, we just lug the terv along and we have an instant, deadly army.
>>22688747i told you people to update the wiki while I was gone.mumble mumble mumble
>>22692790BUMPS FOR THE BUMP GODTHREADS FOR THE THREADS THRONE!
>>22690594i suggested that earlier (as steak)we have 6 hours to plan and prepare.
i am surprised by the gap of no-fighting...this is the 40k universe, we should have had some kind of wacky shootout-wait....the hormassar must eventually get into a western-style dual with an actual commissar to assert that he is deserving of the hat.
lets be honest...we should have had more fighting at this point.
>>22695177I think it's because we are in a buff no man's land. the Imperial s are evacuating the last soldiers off the world while the hive fleet still hasn't tottaly kicked in. Basically we have a whole lot of ground on which to expand.
truly wonderful threads.
>>22695536we should then take advantage of the equipment and men left behind, perhaps get some more nids dressed up and ready to fight.
>>22695738would also be good to rake a complete stock of of both equipment and nids.A good Hormissar is a knowledgeable Hormissar.Need to take note of nid that have certain special characteristics, like cowardice. A good Hormissar will always find weakness in his troops.Hormissar Gaunt is nothing if not a good Hormissar correct?
so keep in mind that we need to have a fight at some point.
I say find the beatboxing Dope-afex to make it a good day.
Hormissar meets Jeanstealer, what happens?
>>22696642>hahahaha good luck i'm behind 7 layers of jeans>by the Hive-emperor that's more than double the heresy!
Can't help but feel as though this is pretty much just intermission....
>>22697083More like a planning period. Where everyone takes a nap.
>>22696771hey, millandson, how are you with crunch? you think you can hack together soemthing that lets us HORMIGUARDS in only war?
>>22697672i requested this in the first thread.exact words: kind of how deffwotch allowed orks to play that, lets just have the hormissar and his guantsmen infiltrate the IG.
>>22697672I might be able to, but I've got a full-day exam relating to my job training on Wednesday, so I'm revising at the moment, and checking /tg/ every 20 minutes or so.
>>22697672Instead of priests, the Nidperial Guard has Steaks who deliver sandwiches to bolster faith and improve troop morale. They are also quite lickable.
>>22697733no, i lied, not exact words.
>>22697755no, the the general term for the humanoids is "meat", and their names are reflected of this...like a priest names "hamburger" or "bologna".
>>22697083Need a fight. I personally need to finish reading the old thread to know where we are at, but we still need to fight and kill something.just throwing a crazy idea out there: What about the ultra-smurfs? those guys are fun to kill by beating them to death with the stick that was up their ass.
>>22697996why would they be here?
>>22697996Well, we beat a hostealer in a road race.
>>22698034crazy idea, need to finish reading, kill something hive fleet even if not impersonating the IG, is very serious. So what would be sent to combat our little "NG"
>>22697996We need to face some Guardsmen. Prove our commissar is the best commissar. And defend our holdings from consumption to spread the word of the Hive-Emperor even further.
>>22698106>>22698076>>22697996Think of this as a RTS. Right now we are still in the resource gathering/army building stage. We have a few units and we are working on fleshing out our techtree, but we arent yet ready for any full scale, prolonged combat engagement. We could handle a few more guard skirmishes or a marine scout squad at the moment, though.Maybe how quickly and silently we deal with the marine scouts determines how much time we get to pool amass an army.
>>22687754why not this post?we are not sure how alchohol effects our kind...yet...FOR SCIENCE!
>>22697745>>22697733>>22697672>>22697755so, what specialties should there be?"guardsmen"termagaunthormagantRippersgenestealer?(need more)support specialistsLICTORSymbiote powered human(need more)
>>22698192Possibly one of the "buildings" is a Tervigon that allows you to actually use the symbiote upgrades?
>>22698192nigga you forgot the hormissar.(well, we do need more humans... and we may want warriors, lictors, maybe a biovore or a hive guard.>>22698147we aren't in a RTS, but this anon has a point.>>22698106and i second this.
shouldn't OP be back by now?
well, i have to go to work.be sure to keep this alive.
is this archived?
so if we were run into a marine scout squad... how close would they get before they realize the guardsmen aren't really guardsmen and the commissar with the extra pure, Emperor approved, fancy hat isn't really a commissar.if there is a change of talk, hit them with a conundrum, we are clearly doing the emperor's will surely they would obey the Hive[/spoiler[-Emperor it would be heretical to think otherwise. I mean who else would give sentience to Nid only for it to do work in the hive-Emperor's name?
if I was an art fag... this would be perfect for a licking edit.
Bunch of crap happened, sorry for the delay gdsahdahda. Went to the movies because turns out I had made plans that I had no idea about, that lasted until 3:30, then I had to do a bunch of crap that I wasn't even told about. Regardless, I'm finally here, and we can begin. Just give me a minute to right up a post or something.
>>22700822It's ok, we love you nonetheless bro.
(Whoever put that Jive Tyrant video, I hate you. I can't stop watching it.)You wake up. It's a strange feeling, sleeping. You didn't think you'd be capable of it. Hormagaunts are noted for their short lifespans, due to their expendable nature. However, you don't feel that way. You feel different.>>22687754You look around and notice the many sprawled out hormagaunts surrounding you. That explains why you were able to sleep so soundly. You decide to find Steak while you have the time. Going back into the town, you see some Townspeople preparing sandwiches for your army, others being chased around and eaten, and a large crowd gathered outside of the bar from yesterday. Confused, you check it out. You squeeze past the crowd and into the building. From the inside you can hear what sounds like moaning from the floor above.You found Steak.
>>22701273If he's not awake, lick him.>captcha: Chouec usually.Yes captcha, usually there is choochooing, but this is pretty much the reverse.
>>22701273Go give Steak a high five. He is a useful specimen, and him breeding will make more useful specimens. This is ideal.
>>22701343Agreed, we can never have enough Steaks
>>22701273If he's awake, lick him.If he's asleep, lick him.
We should create an ideal mate for Steak as a reward for his great service.Offer the remaining townsfolk the same offer.
>>22701273symbiotes, no more eating willy nilly. symbiotes!
>>22700278not really an artfag but here ya go
>>22701373having mini steaks to snack on when the sandwiches run dry will be a lifesaver.
>>22701498>will be a lifesaver.For Steak, at least.
>>22701332>>22701381You decide to go upstairs and lick Steak. While you climb the stairs, you hear some more moaning, before it finally stops and is quiet. You do not ponder why. Instead you open the door, to find what seems to be Steak lying in a bed with a young, red-haired woman. You proceed to walk up and lick Steak before anyone says anything, and then take your leave. Steak is crying while you leave, while the woman is confused.>>22701441You decide to fuse some of the other townsfolks with your Hormagaunt swarm. >What exactly do you guys want to do to the townspeople?>>22701403(Oh dear lord this terrifies me.)
>>22701607I want to give Steak a reward in the form of a Hybrid-mate.Do the same for other townsfolk.
>>22701607We need a bigger swarm! So either we mold them into more gaurdisaurs, or we conscript them as a militia. For the Hive-Emperor!
>>22701607find more viable mates for Steak.
>>22701628Fuse even more townspeople, Have the lictor eat some of the sandwich makers, and have the remainder as normal worshippers of the Hive-Emperor.
>>22701607We should request some more hormagaunts from the hive mind if we can, we might run across something big next.For villagers, take the weak and cowering unfaithful ones and merge them with the gaunts.
>>22701668>Have the lictor eat some of the sandwich makersNo! They are sacred!
>>22701707But then we have a sammich making lictor to have sandwiches in the field without worrying about fragile humies
>>22701607Turn that Red-head into a hybrid to show Steak how much we value his devotion.
>>22701737No, that means steak's breeding would be unsuccessful.
Make the Red Head a hybrid.
>>22701737How about we just give him more alcohol, to encourage more breeding?
>>22701607ensuring Steak will have successful mating is all well and good, but what if some traitor townsfolk send a distress...i mean ambush signal to some local troublemakers.What are own standing forces and what rate can when replenish or add to our current Nidperial Guard.Our first and formost duty is to spread the Hive-Emperors will across the lands and then to the stars(which are filled with heretics and willing ears)
>>22701607those that are symbioted get upgrades! more efficient organs! regeneration! additional strength, speed and toughness, and are now in tune with the will of the hive emperor!
>>22701813Yeah, we need a troop update, and pop update, maybe what we got on hand?
>>22701668(Victor's back at the other town solidifying control and worship of the Hive-Emperor)>>22701655>>22701669You decide to begin to Hybridize the population. Anyone unwilling to worship shall be fused with one of the Hormagaunts under your command. (The Process of this causes a sort of mind wipe, erasing the person's personality, just letting you guys know.) >You currently have:- 50 Hormagaunts (With 50 more with Victor at the previous town.)- 21 "Guardifexs" (20 Townspeople converted)- 1 Steak (Delicious.)- 1 Lictor (Named Victor)- 1 Hormissar- 500 Townspeople- 50 Sandwich Makers- 5000 Biomass(Once you reach reclamation pools, you'll be able to "spend" the biomass to obtain larger and stronger Tyranids.)>What do you do now?
>>22701936Send out scouts to find new enemies to conquer and people to spread the word to
>>22701936Demand information (and sandwiches) from the population, regarding surrounding towns, military bases, science labs, anything else of interest.also, we need to reward Steak in some way. Should we maybe ask him what it wants?
>>22701936Do we know of any other villages or encampments in the area? Especially IG camps, I don't think we're ready to look for SM yet.
>>22701813>>22701846this also means not consuming planets, they have to remain workable, and the population remain protected. they are the hive-emperor's citizens, and he protects. >>22701936sybiosis is superior, prefer to not destroy who they are, but enhance them to our side. symbiotes should also allow them to convert biological materials into energy, so no qualms about recycling the dead. material is material and won't make them sickalso. steak upgrades go. we won't stop until he is a superman!in addition, try something other than a sandwich. maybe someone's making a good stew.>begum tnsemencaptcha wants to give him nid-powered semen?
I'll be back guys, dinner's about to start. In the meantime, plan on what to do with your "supplies" and whatnot.
>inb4 Hommissar Gaunt becomes the new Hive-God Emperor who seduces the Norm Queen and all of Tyranids conquer and ally with Imperium and all other alien and xenos sides (while equipping themselves with Mary Sue Dark Age technology found in the bowels of the Hive Fleet from the other 12 galaxies they ate) Let's face it, this is the only true ending for the Hommissar
>>22702040what if they have a tasty Ogryn or three?I want Ogryn, lets get us a pet Ogryn!
Whelp, time to make something with imperial guard and tyranids parts.we should totally stat our troops?
What happens when we get the sandwich makers to consume ratlings? Will they become super sandwich makers? Or can only Victor archive this?
>>22702056Oh, we still have that helgun, right? give it to Steak.
>>22701936Steak is on the DO NOT FUSE OR NIBBLE list.
We need a bunch of nonfused people who are fully sapient/sentient. There needs to be a huge population that is scared, but more confused tha anything.lrn2comedyAnyway, is the last thread archived?
(I still can't believe honey barbecue sauce goes so well with ketchup on burgers...)>>22703373http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22668478/ Yup, here's the first thread. Now to start writing again. Give me a bit.
>>22702060(I'll only do this if it is /tg/'s will. I am but an instrument, it is for /tg/ to decide what happens.)>>22701975After seeing what happens to all dissenters, most of the population is very much willing to dispense any information they hold. (If you guys want, I can go try and make a map, or I could just give the information as it comes by. Up to you guys.)
>>22703737I could make maps from what you give us. I did it for Pax Americana and it seemed to work well.
>>22703737Heh, lets save that for last or as a foreshadowing vision/prediction granted to him. Also Norm Queen smexy tiem.
We need some more trandport for our troops
Alrighty, Rectanges are villages/towns. Four pointed stars are cities, and the hexagon is a hive. Blue is rivers/ocean, brown triangles are mountains, grey is roads, and green circles around towns are captured territory. The random green ovals are reclamation pools. If anyone wants to do something with actual detail, go ahead, I just made this in paint in about 20 minutes to be honest.
>>22704124Lets head south past the reclamation pool then.
>>22704124South is good. More people to join us
>>22704124South, but stop at reclamation pool along the way
>>22704168>>22704236>>22704377(Do you guys want to leave somebody in charge of the current area?)

>>22704498I second this notion. Original Guardifex shall watch over our southern territory, and work on mass producing delicious sammiches to sustain our army!Plain ol' biomass is fine, but morale always improves with a little variety in the soldiers diets!
>>22704645(Hey, at least you made it pretty. Look at mine, then at yours. Yours is made of solid gold to my steaming turd of a map.)(Also, I forgot to mention, you have 2 Genestealers, along with 8 Genestealer Cultists. You also have a chimera, 12 Civilian transports, and 2 Limos.)>>22704498>>22704832You decide it's properly time to head out. You leave the original "guardifex" in charge, who accepts the role graciously. You take as transport with you your original chimera, the civilian transports for your fellow Hormagaunts, and the Genestealers take their limos.You decide to give Steak your Hellgun, as you don't have as much use for it as he does. Steak, being half dressed at the moment due to being busy procreating a few minutes ago, accepts, if rather rudely. As you head out, the voice in your head tells you "SOUTH. POOL. BIOMASS." You decide that the voice, not having lied to you yet, is trustworthy, and head southwards.You see familiar sights as you approach the reclamation pool. Capillary towers begin to become more and more common. It is refreshing to see something natural to you, rather than the strange sights you've been exposed to recently. You eventually arrive at your destination. Steak is hiding in the chimera, refusing to get out, complaining of something smelling worse than his mother's cooking, or something along those lines. Regardless, you're here.>What do you do?
>>22705001Realise you are despoiling the world, and need to integrate with the local ecosystem to create the foundation of a working realm for the hive emperor.Spend biomass upgrading symbiosis. Requisition some foodrippers, so that they can be domesticated and harvested for sandwich ingredients.
>>22705001What happens if we dunk Steak in the breeding pool?
>>22705001I imagine the Hive-Emperor would be displeased if we left all His worlds as barren husks. Some, yeah, I am sure He would approve, but not ALL of them. I second >>22705063Upgrade Symbiosis, so we can meld human and gaunt together without destroying the human's mind, or driving them completely insane beyond recovery. Also some proper hands! We needs HANDS to use the tools of Man!
>>22705001Receive Termagants, keep some, send some back to reinforce our two towns. Make Hormagants stronger, and somehow improve guardifex. Acquire ripper swarms.
>>22705112I'd be willing to test that out. Maybe he'll be even tastier
>>22705063>>22705168>our form of exterminatus will be eating a world wholesale
>>22705112Why did this make me think of a baneblade being put into a reclamation pool, and then as the planet's drained, the baneblade is brought to the Norm Queen, and as it dies, one psychic scream is heard."CREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED"But in all seriousness, he'd just be melted down into biomass, or something like that.
>>22705215Well forget about it then
>>22705191Chaos corruption? Eat the daemon, purify the rippers.Rebels out of hand? Send in Space Carnifexes via STELH REIHN into the enemy stronghold.Mutants? Consume their tainted flesh, and experiment!Witches? Consume their delicious brains, make more thropes!
>>22705168YOU REALIZE YOUR BIGGEST ERROR. You stare at yourself. No, not like that, don't be dumb. You stare at your arms. On the ends, there are no fingers. There are no thumbs. The realization of this makes you want to scream out in terror. >You have spent 100 Biomass to acquire high-quality hands, well-made, hands!It was worth it, you say, twirling your pistol with your newly made hands.>You also spend 1000 Biomass upgrading the Symbiosis technique! People now retain their minds!>>22705063>You spend 900 acquiring food-rippers! You now have a renewable, food source that, with time, can produce new yields of biomass (And sandwiches)!>Anything else?
>>22705342expand our forces, i propose termagants
>>22705409>>22705342also, weapon symbiotes wieldable by human auxiliaries. perhaps biological lasguns. you also need reloads for your bolt pistol. get some biobolts.
>>22705342Huzah! Hands! Let us feel all the things! "By the Hive-Emperor, Steak, you are so squishy! We must fix that!"Using new symbiosis capabilities, we must UPGRADE STEAK! He is our second in command after all, have the best understanding of humans out of the entire group.I suggest subdermal carapace plating! Keep the human look, but make his skin on par with hormagaunt chitin! And it serves as an anchor point for anything REALLY weird we put on him.
>>22705482>Let us feel all the things!Now we can pinch to see how fat he is getting!
>>22705409>>22705458>>22705482All excellent suggestions
>>22705482this, also organ enhancement, and a general strength boost. his immune system is now microscopic rippers that eat disease. perhaps make it so he can spend and use biomass to upgrade himself.
>>22705492>Now we can pinchSteak*.
>>22705492>>22705526>implying his new nid-powered metabolism isn't geared to keep him in the best shape ever, and prevents him from gaining exess fat.
>>22705524Think we need more biomass to pull that one off.Plus it might eat him from the inside out.We must EXPERIMENT on lesser subjects. Steak is delicious. Only we get to eat Steak. Ranking officer and all that good jazz.
>>22705482With your new hands, you realize now that Steak himself deserves an upgrade! Ignoring his cries for help and tears, you proceed to symbiotically increase his physical capabilities!>For the price of 1200 Biomass, Steak is now immune to most, if not all, known diseases, able to survive a lasgun shot without injury while unarmored, able to emit pheromones to change moods, and able to run up to 15 Miles Per Hour for extended periods of time.
>>22705781Congratulate Steak. Tell him he is now an alpha human, and will sire many childeren. That should cheer him up.Then let's get traveling.
>>22705781Inform Steak that he can now make females receptive to procreation with but a thought. Then lick him and pinch to check how he is coming along.
>>22705781Exellent. Onward to the next town for more conquest and [hopefully] bloodbath!
>>22705856You proceed to explain to Steak his new powers. He is too busy screaming and running in circles and having a panic attack. You laugh it off, lick him, and give him a pinch before going on with your plans.>>22705409>>22705458You spend the rest of your Biomass acquiring biobolts for your bolt pistol, biolasguns, and Termagants! (Am I the only one who wonders why it's TermaGANT and HormaGAUNT?)>You spend 1500 for 150 Termagants, 50 biomass for 300 biobolts, 200 biomass for 20 biological lasguns, and 50 biomass for 200 bio-laspacks.>What do you now?(Somebody wanna archive this at some point?)
>>22706468Load up and roll out! Steak will soon learn to love his new powers.
>>22706468I have no idea why the name difference...time for some google-fu?
https://twitter.com/HormissarGaunt Also, I made a twitter so I could actually put dates for quests up. Tomorrow I'll most likely be busy, but we'll see what happens.Anyway:You decide it's finally time to head out. You wave goodbye to the lovely capillary towers, and begin your journey southward to the next town. While you drive, you get an odd urge. You stand up, and open the top of the Chimera. You begin to wave one of your scythes above you menicingly while the chimera drives you toward the town.>The story shall continue later everyone.It was fun today guys, we'll see where the future brings us!
>>22706819sleep well.while you rest, we shall brainstorm only war houserules to play this in.FOR THE HIVE EMPEROR, ON THE BIOTHRONE
lets update the wiki page!http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hormissar_Gaunt
i suggest that ogryns be included...maybe even some ratlings.but what we need most is more biomass to get ready to assault the city nearby, and we do that by getting support from everyone in the surrounding towns
>>22707458there are a few options we have:the towns are automatic and needed, as they both give us resources and troops (sandwiches and possible guardifexes.) then we should consider the following: the smallest city, which is very close to the hive, would be the easiest pickings, but the imperial forces on the planet would immediately be aware of us and it would be hard to defend the city with what we have (considering we are next door to the main garrison.) we may also take the more removed, more populous city (as it has the most towns nearby, this will take a while, but would give us a nice stream of sandwiches and troops) which would raise less alert to the imperial forces, but alert them still...but we must do both in order to capture the final city, and then the hive. (we must do it in this fashion, as assaulting a city now would end in failure due to insufficient resources, the possibility of reinforcements from the central hive, and would tell the imperials that we are here. the way to take the hive is to deny it these resources and reinforcements by taking all of the cities and converting them.)what we must consider, however, is that the choice is not if, but when and which. and as such we must choose the most logical and effective siege first.I for one vote for the more displaced, close and populous, (albeit time consuming) city.
>>22706674Because Termagant sounds better than Termagaunt.
How much biomass do we currently have?
Rolled 62, 72, 47, 79, 18, 16, 70 = 364>>22709132We started with 5000 (>>22701936)Then we spent 2000 on hands, better symbiosis and getting some foodrippers (>>22705342)Then we upgraded Steak to be epic for 1200 (>>22705781)Then we spend 1800 on getting Termagants, Biobolts, Biological Lasguns and bio-laspacks.So that equals out to 0 biomas, as of right now.
>>22713171This clearly means that we require more biomass. Next village? It might be worth taking >>22707630 into account, and destroying the satelite towns for the cities, which would reduce the support the cities have, which would in turn reduce the support the hive gets.We have genestealers, don't we? Let's send some infiltrators in.
>>22713244i agree, get some more troops and resources by having the genestealers... well, i hate to be racist but... steal them...
well, i say that the emperasque may be the promised hive-emperor...or some shit like that.
>>22714654Nah, because the emprasque has a mind of its own - something that would never be accepted by the tyranid swarm. Admittedly, some tyranids need to be more independent than others, but it seems to me to be more of a breeds of dog thing than a species thing - you breed some dogs to be more independent than others, because it's really not very helpful to have a dog that chases game but comes back every 5 minutes to ask you whether it's doing the right thing.
>>22714904thats because tyranids are,more or less, all one organism (albeit a large and very scattered organism) that has a moving digestion system.
>>22715887the plankton! it is revolting!
