I am the Chapter Master. You should not concern yourself with my name, for who I am is what I do, not how someone chooses to label me. By the will of the Emperor I command the finest Chapter to ever tread among the stars. I have no fear but to fail in the eyes of my brothers. Age of Ruin is on the horizon, Imperium is falling apart, I know it in my heart. I was blessed and cursed to live in time when the fate of our galaxy is being decided once more. I can just hope that my choices will be right. Ave Imperator et Imperium!Session will begin soon.
Forgot to mention:-Session 51-
Hey guys. Thank you, Luigi, for creating the thread. So, do we want a proper session tonight or a background building session? We haven't had those in a while and I think that you might be interested in many things that aren't so well fleshed out. Please vote here
>>23584860What will we be doing in the background building?
>>23584860I could go for a background session, I like making things.
>>23584867generating planets, characters, factions, aliens, i'll make some maps maybe, anything you suggest.
Is this a thread for the Chapter Master Game that's being made, or a quest thread?
>>23584922I'd say a small proper session then.>>23584937Quest.
>>23584949how else did you imagine a background session?
>>23584992Something like Montus.
>>23585010So we want Commoragh quest then?
>>23585063I want CMQ, to get this Adriel shit out of the way and make some PROGRESS, so you don't have time to make a billion and a half ways to fuck us over.
Ok, as there is no single opinion, highest roll wins on d100.choices:1. background2. CMQ3.ComQ
Rolled 37>>23585148one more for background
>>23585148... I would vote, but I'd most likely just watch so ill stand back on that.
Rolled 6>>23585167CMQ, go!
>>23585182I think we have a winner.=====As you return to your cell to take off your armour before interrogating Farseer Adriel, you notice that Brethorius is already waiting for you there.>Brother, what's the matter with that xeno witch? I have the strangest of suspicions... Please clarify me on the situation and don't let doubts cloud my judgement.
>>23585307What do you mean what's the matter?
>>23585307>Do you remember the prophecy I told you about brother? The one which predicted the coming of the Men of Iron? This is the Eldar who told me of it. I must honour my debt to her and release her, however first I will have a chat with her to try and find out some information.
I need clarification on these issues:>Lusmer is NOT allowed to marry noblewoman on Tachion Primaris?>How did you explain Ceiron's absence to Magos Explorator Adelphi?>>23585324>>23585349>She's a xeno, milord. And an ally. I've signed up for many things, but this is closer to heresy than we have ever ventured before. Also, not any xeno, but an eldar. There have been attempts by lesser men to cooperate with them out of fear or greed, but it always led them to their doom. Even if her prophecy came true, is it wise to keep her now? She's no use to us, let us give her to the Techpriests.
>>23585418Brethorius, I am not keeping the Eldar, I have no need for pets.I merely wish to know why she was here in the sector, before I release her back into the wild.
>>23585418>Lusmer is NOT allowed to marry noblewoman on Tachion Primaris?Until the Chapter Master visits personally, the relationship may continue however marriage is not allowed.>How did you explain Ceiron's absence to Magos Explorator Adelphi?How did, or how do?Since it HASN'T BEEN A YEAR YET.
>>23585473Well, year is coming to an end...>>23585454>Are you sure it is wise, milord? Brothers will not understand. She's an enemy. Even if she won't hurt us outright while she's weak, she could hurt other humans, who are less well prepared to defend themselves than we are...
>>23585551>What would you have me do brother? Break the oaths I made and the word I gave? What would that make me?
>>23585551Brethorius, do you really believe she's going to attack civilians in the middle of enemy territory?My friend, the Eldar may be the trickiest beings in the galaxy, I however do not believe they have infiltrated us to the extent that they can openly kill the Imperium's blood in daylight.Worry not Brother, she will soon be gone.
>>23585591>>23585610Brethorius nods:>I stand with you, Master, I just warned what others might see. Our Chapter is stronger than ever today, and all of it is because of your guidance. He seems to be calmed. What do you do?
>>23585631Give Brethorius a big power hug.Thank you for staying at my side brother, you honor me with your devotion.And then we go in and meet Adriel.
>>23585631"Remember, brother. Our sector faces many threats, and many of them threaten the Eldar as well. At times, the enemy of my enemy is my friend."
>>23585689>>23585661Brethorius seems to be a little more cheerful because of your gesture.You leave your cell and go straight to the prison block of Aspera Dominus. On the way to the interrogation room you notice almost a dozen marines standing guard, among them you notice Sarkos, who salutes you with his weapon as you pass. Armoured door before you opens and you enter the room. Eldar is as beautiful, if not more, than ever. Despite the fact that her clothes were torn and her face smeared with dirt, this way for you she seems a lot more natural. Her hair is falling on her shoulders like red waves of some faraway alien sea, her high cheekbones look like carved out of adamantium and her eyes gaze at you with the depth of dying stars.>You came, player. Care for a game of regicide?
>>23585831Maybe later Adriel.I would first like to inquire as to why you were in the Sector.Your very presence here....is endangering the life of my Chapter's wellbeing and standing.Not that I don't dislike you being here, I just would prefer it when I don't have to send an armored guard to save you from our enemies.
>>23585831Make sure we nod and smile approvingly to Sarkos as he salutes.Pass her a cloth to wipe her face with:>If you feel up to it after your ordeal. Do you want a drink or anything?
>>23585831... did we rescue a prisoner from Chaos and not purify the shit out of her with chaplain-blessed water and soap?We need a serf to get a chaplain to bless us some water and soap for this witch to clean up with. And some over-sized robes so we can make her look goofy.There shall be no lingering taint, and she can stop being a damned, dirty eldar that will blow everything up.
>>23585876>I am here on behalf of the Seekers, warrior-king. We are a family of lost children, who were forced by Fate to leave Wuxide Craftworld to search for many answers. There has been a strong vibration in my visions of the future, that was caused by the situation that is unfolding right here... There is a plot among you kin, a plot that will make you slaughter each other with even greater zeal than us. I saw a Dark Walker who marches across the stars, sowing seeds of conflict among your lesser mon'keigh brothers. It already began. There was blood spilt, betrayed blood of someone who cared about the future. What results it brings, I do not know. But I am sad to say, that you are in the center of these things. My wish is to keep mon'keigh strong here, or at least to give them a chance to fight for themselves, because if you fall - worse predators will come in your wake...
>>23586019Then if you wish to help us here, then would you be able to help me with a few certain tasks?(Finding Ceiron through use of visions and Psyker tutoring)
>>23585937She takes the cloth and starts slowly tearing it into small pieces while talking with you. It seems as if she's scrying. Probably she didn't really understood what it was for. She still is quite dirty, but she doesn't seem to mind.>Yes, I'd love to drink something. Treat me with one of your crude beverages, I've never tried mon'keigh drinks.What do you give her?>>23585981She was screened for psychic taint, but there is none. Other than that no tests have been performed.Is it decided on the oversized robes and washing in front of CM? Or do you wish to leave your conversation for later?
>>23586119All time is precious, and considering we shouldn't draw too much attention to coming back and forth from this room, I suggest we stay here while it's happening.
>>23586136>>23586119Just turn around while she's changing.>>23586119Get some average quality amasec, as well as some water.
>>23586040>That's why we need to establish how do we feel about each other... You once promised me, that if I will ask you, you will sow chaos there were I say. Today I have you the name of the world. It's Aeelyan, known in human tongue as Kruun. Do you know of it? I feel that unless your Imperium loses control of this world, there will be bad consequences...
>>23586119>What do you give her?Depends, if you want higher quality, then you'll have to wait.Otherwise enjoy >>23586172
>>23586180Tell me Eldar, how do you suggest I do this?If I directly disobey or attack the Imperium I, and everything I own will be destroyed, annihilated with only dead worlds to show for evidence of our passingUnless that is your intention, in which case the outcome of our conversation will be very much according to the Codex Astartes.
>>23586119Amasec, naturally. Not TOO fine, but a few steps up from swill. And maybe we should mention that she might wish to make herself presentable before drinking.
>>23586180What do you understand under losing control over it? Do we halt our war efforts completely, or do we remain in a stalemate?
>>23586182>I have waited for millenia, I am more than willing to wait for a little more... Surprise me.>>23586136>>23586172Two Mormarkians Chapter serfs come and undress Adriel who looks at them with mild suspicion, but as they take off her clothes and start washing her, she shows no signs of being shy of her nudity. Well, no more than an ordinary human would be shy of being naked in front of a dog. She complains about lack of mon'keigh hygiene culture and urged you to invent something called kwa'll, what you realise after some talks to be eldar name for shower booth. You haven't seen anything of interest as you turned away while she was naked, but that was one of those moments in your life when you wished so that Emperor would have planted and extra set of eyes in the back of your head.>>23586200>I cannot force your hand. You must find a way yourself. But it is true, that you are walking on the edge of a blade. Many eyes follow you, hoping that you'll fall. All they need is an excuse to rip your brotherhood apart. But I cannot change what I see - Kruun must burn. All we can hope for is that this fire will kill the snake in the grass, but won't burn the whole meadow...
Rolled 54>>23586249Let me see...
>>23586303>I will do what I can regarding Kruun, but you must understand the large amount of forces I have committed to that campaign, I cannot order them to fail, I doubt they would believe it was an order from me anyway.
>>23586303>I have waited for millenia, I am more than willing to wait for a little more... Surprise me.Order some of the finest Solian Tea from Mormark."Well, it may taste like the touches of heaven to a Mon'keigh tongue, but to yours it'll probably taste like the dirt you tread.""I would like to ask a favor Adriel, the Eldar are supposedly the masters of the ways of the Immaterium, in comparison we are but children playing with lethal weapons.""I ask of you to teach me the ways of divination, so as to aid me in my quest against Chaos, and the other forces that seek our combined doom"
>>23586303Ultramar is supposed to make particularly fine amasec, maybe that would be good.Maybe we could also inform her that human showers are a thing.
>>23586341...my visions are unclear, but I see men, evil, ragged, brutal men, tearing down every eagle on the planet, waving red flag into the sky as the ships go down and the messengers from the blood stars come... Don't ask me, I am not sure how this is going to help Imperium. But Kruun must fall and be taken over by those other people.
Suddenly you are called out by Sarkos to speak outside the interrogation room:>Sir, we might have a problem... Those serfs who were washing the farseer. Well,they haven't been exactly serfs. Those were the heirs of Kerius Dermont. What shall we do sir? They came here to see a naked woman, but saw a xenos witch...(that doesn't mean that they deny that she's beautiful) How are we going to keep their traps shut?
>>23585937get outta here with that waifu shit - we're the goddamn chapter master - no time for that heretical shit.
>>23586476Throw them into the brig.Don't take it easy on them.
>>23586510>>23586552They whine a lot, but now they are in the brig. Kay, your assault leutenant turns to you with a wide smile and asks:>Should I give them a cold shower or something? They've dishonoured the lady, even if she's a xeno...
>>23586644Kay, I'll let you have at them after I've finished my talks with the Xeno and the children.Still waiting for the reply from here >>23586359
>>23586476Impersonating a chapter serf isn't good. We should incarcerate them.
>>23586476>make joke in chat>it happens>mwahahaahahaha>skargan's face whenTime to forge the future of Mormark, lads.
>>23586359>Solian Tea... What an exquisite taste. You have my respect, warrior, this drink is almost on par with what our worker caste drinks. I never thought that lower xeno forms hav anything that could match any Eldar drink, even that of a lower class.>I must admit, that I am reluctant to tech you, because seeing future can lead your kind to madness and Chaos... But if you really wish, I'll do that. However you'll have to help me make Fate unfold. And first step is Kruun.
>>23586806Well I am glad you find the tea to your liking, although I would have wished to serve you better, my kind hadn't the luxury of sitting back and creating delicacies for the last few thousand years.>I must admit, that I am reluctant to tech you, because seeing future can lead your kind to madness and Chaos... But if you really wish, I'll do that. However you'll have to help me make Fate unfold. And first step is Kruun.I will begin diverting forces to the pirates in another part of the sector, I however cannot give up the crusade so easily, especially when such visions you have shown me resemble chaos so, and even if I withdraw then the Imperial Guard will respond at a later date, at most I can keep the planet at a stalemate.
>>23586873Adriel is sad.>That will not be enough. We must give those people to evil so that it would grow and could be stomped out earlier... Otherwise snake will strike from the grass with no warning. I am very sad that you do not hold to your word.
>>23586960You can roll persuasion with -20 penalty to change her mind.
>>23586974What's she going to do?
>>23586960Adriel, I can promise you help if you can find a strong enough diversion for my forces in one of the nearby sub-sectors.A large Xeno presence we can invade, one that may be considered a threat for our forces.
>>23586806She may be right. The Path of the Seer is something she's been on for many years, and even she finds herself uncertain. With our sense of immediacy... it'll probably end in disastrous miscalculations. She may think of us as "low", but we're not idiots. We should be able to tell when something is a terrible idea.
>>23587013We never said we'd do it all at once, maybe at best we would improve what we already have of our divination powers.
>>23586974This roll will determine whether she'll share her powers and knowledge with you ifyou do not listen to her advice regarding Kruun.>>23586977>But you still have the power to withdraw your men. Keeping them away from Kruun for a few months would be enough for it to collapse...>>23587005I will try to do my best... It will all depend on how my visions come(OOC: when I have time to fluff out another subsector), but I think that Tortuga could be a good target for your brothers... Or one of the daemon worlds in the Grave.
>>23587051As long as the Daemon world is not considered offlimits to us by the silent guardians then it may be applicable.And if worst comes to worst, you could ask your friends to cause a diversion.
>>23586960Much of Imperial society runs on appearances and pretexts. Find us a pretext for going there, or it won't be possible.After all, YOU'RE asking US to do this.
>>23587031The entire idea is dangerous regardless of how we execute it... ESPECIALLY if we start getting partial bits of information. Half a truth is often worse than no information at all.
ok, time to sleep, but we'll have a session tomorrow or on sunday.we earn 1 xp(yeah, seriously, not much progress)Please archive!
>>23586960"Then I must have a more pressing threat to deal with.">>23586644>>23586669"They are only human, brother Kay. Their excess energy clearly requires other outlets, though. Do you believe a few laps around the ship in full carapace armor will be effective with such a thing? After I speak with them, a few serfs should be able to handle such a thing."
>>23587086We already use divination on a regular basis.Shit man, keep up with the quest.>>23587097Can we at least Phone Klementhos and tell him to begin the creation of 10 Iron Warrior marines to be kept under his supervision.
>>23587097there's not much progress because of that Dermont's Son shit you pulled on us!
>Can we at least Phone Klementhos and tell him to begin the creation of 10 Iron Warrior marines to be kept under his supervision.Will be done!
>>23587157oh sweet jesus no!
Reaching into the Immaterium, the Chapter Master weaves himself an endless piano, filled with every sound imaginable.In memory of his fallen brothers, he plays the three hundred and sixty four tones of sorrow, and for each stroke of a note, he promises a vengeance to the enemies of the Imperium.He plays the three hundred and sixty four tones of regret, and for each note he promises glory for the people of the Imperium.He plays the three hundred and sixty four tones of guilt, and for each note he remembers his failures.
>>23587287That's beautiful, anon, thanks.
