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.
>>23617006You're rolling tonight, right?
>>23617021No, never again.
>>23616921But, this time the Chapter Master hears the music of another, the echoes of his music interrupting our own.We look across to see a man with hawk-like eyes and a lean build, his hands a blur at the giant piano before us, his music showing what seems to be all the tones in the universe, all put together in a humongous and complex and mysterious symphony. Several notes seem to echo within us, eight times, and the entire piece resonates within us, tempting us to play along mirthfully, however a certain tone reminds us of our duty number three hundred and forty three.After he has finished, he comes over to us, and a feeling of welcoming and warmth comes to us, but more how one encounters a new tool, rather than a friend.He presses a small item into our hands, and promptly vanishes into the warp, and the sigil sits in our hand, reminding us of the power that we are promised.
Some say, that the Age of Imperium is over. Some say, that the Long Night is coming and that cold void will engulf every last human soul. Some think there is no hope. But others fight. Powerful surge of energy shatters reality as a magnificent warship emerges out of the depths of warp into the light of an old star. On it's bridge stand a proud warrior, more a work of art than a living being, genetically enhanced and modified Chapter Master of the fated Chapter known as Ghosts of Retribution.Copernicon, Master of the Fleet, approaches him from behind and whispers:>We have arrived, milord. Tachion, capital of the star realm. We are at full readiness. What are your orders?
>>23617100As mysterious writefag anon strikes again so, it happens. Roll willpower.
>>23617138>"land a company. i'm going down there."

Rolled 69>>23617227rerolling for this, because fuck my rollan skillz
>>23617138Go down with just the Shadow Guard and investigate that woman who wants to marry Sergeant Lusmer.Contact Xyptus:>Xyptus my friend, might I ask you investigate the whereabouts of Lady [I've forgotten her name]. Thank you, CM.
>>23617227>Sure milord. Which Company shall we deploy? With armoured support or without? What combat readiness should we be at? Also, where?1. Sector Governors Palace2. Grand Economica3. Basilica Emperoris4. Underhives5. Hive Babelion Hab-blocks6. Main starport7. Other(about 30 total locations possible)>>23617100I demand this anon to join us in our chat and contact me, for I wish to discuss stuff with him.
>>23617304>>23617327But before that, we need to talk with Adriel.Firstly:>If you can find a threat significant enough to warrant me pulling my forces of Kruun, I will comply with your request.>I was wondering if you might help me gain more mastery over my mind? (request for psy rating improvement)
>>23617304<monocle>Perhaps we can join her for tea. </monocle>
>>23617346>>23617327Oh and also ask her if she can help us locate Vindicare Ceiron. She can access our mind to find out what his 'mental address' is, so to speak, and then use her superior divination to locate him.
>>23617346The Eldar are better at tricking other races into doing their bidding. I think in the DOW2 campaign they led the Tyranids along towards Subsector Aurelia. Suggest that she does that again with orks or something.
>>236173274 and 6
>>23617396Good idea.Polite sage for not contributing.
Don't land a company on Tachion, firstly, we don't have an entire company at our disposal on the ship, secondly, we're not going to war with this planet.
>>23617447I would assume that we land at the Governor's Palace. Talk to our Marines stationed there, get this woman's address and then go courting....I mean calling. I said calling.No need for a whole company. Shadow guard should be plenty. And why haven't we cast visions for Ceiron yet?
>>23617483I'm trying to>>23617378
>>23617233His touch is felt on you, but you resist further distortion of your spirit. Galaxy seems to be a little brighter to you now. Anon earns 1 xp.>>23617304Renard comes to you with a data slate:>Lady Anastasia Belladon of the Imperial Court, third heir on the female line to the Belladon dynasty of Tachionian nobles, has connections and blood ties all over the Sector. 83 years old, known for lavish parties and celebrations, however also donates a lot to local astrobelas. Current motivation unknown, but she is like honey to Lusmer. Very intelligent, highly educated, rich. Could be a great ally or great enemy. What shall we do about her? Xyptus, who is standing nearby answers:>We'll do our best to monitor her for things that official data doesn't show. My men will do their best.(roll spy network strength +10 because under direct command from Xyptus)>>23617346Adriel nods:>I could ask my brothers and sisters to create distraction in the warp that will deceive imperial navigators to look like an invasion from Daemon worlds. Will that do? Only once you surrender to the fate and let it take you, then you will see it... We will need a lot of time(she can do that during narrative).
Rolled 76for spy network
Rolled 43>>23617558>Thank you XyptusRolling for spy networkTo Adriel:>As long as the distraction for countering the 'daemon threat' give us long enough time to lose Kruun without looking incompetent.
>>23617558> Not even a warp fail in this session.
>>23617350Xyptus nods:>That'd impress her, lord. Shall I make an appointment?>>23617378Roll her divination. Under 43.>>23617396She alone cannot do something like that. She'd need to rejoin her kin first and even then it's easier said than done.>>23617447True, landing a full combat detachment without asking permission from your liege Sector Lord might cause suspicion. Coups usually start like that.>>23617483Renard asks you:>So Governors' palace it is, sir? Thunderhawk is ready, we are waiting for you.>>23617591Hey data is well encrypted and no bad rumours surround her apart from a scandalous love affair or two in the younger years.>>23617602Adriel seems happier now.>Good, Kruun must fall. I will need to join my kin for this. Let me meditate, i will try to locate webway on this world, if it is here.[roll d10. on 1,2,3 there is a webway portal Adriel will be able to activate. on 9, 10 special things happen.]

Rolled 79>>23617895forgot dice
>>23617809Adriel opens her soul to look into the warp, looking for the remains of her ancient civilisation...>I feel sadness, this world, like many others, once belonged to my kind... But now it's dead, there are no webway gates I can feel here. Maybe hidden ones, but I would need time and special codewords to find them. Wait, I hear the music... What a strange warp tune... It's beautiful and terrible at the same time... It's coming from... FROM YOU!!! AAAAAHHH! Adriel screams and you feel a psychic backlash from her as her soul locks herself in, defending her life essence from the discord that is coming from you and Farseer falls on the ground. Klementhos together with Simmer quickly run into the room and take care of her. Old Apothecary soon gives a diagnose:>She's in deep coma, milord. What happened? >>23617895She was preparing to do that, but didn't manage to.
>>23617943So waifu status lost?
Rolled 41>>23617943>She's in deep coma, milord. What happened?Not sure.Rolling to finish the job she was doing.
>>23617943I'd post the Anchorman phone booth gif again but I can't even find these constant bad rolls funny any more....>I do not know Klementhos, she must have tried to access the warp and failed.
>>23617984Can we just have the apothecaries take care of her, cast visions ourselves and then get down to the planet? I'd like to get this marriage thing over and done with so we can move on
>>23617943When you meet Klementhos a few hours later in front of the Apothecarion, he looks grim:>I've examined her milord. I am no xeno-biologist, but her brain is a lot more delicate than ours, and I believe that it was damaged. When she wakes up, if she wakes up, I mean, she may lose parts of her memory, personality or even sanity.

He is looking for the cure.
Rolled 27>>23618353What happened to visions casting on Ceiron with Eldar?
Rolled 3, 5, 9, 8, 10 = 35>>23618353Fine, visions for CeironQuestion: is harvesting the geneseed a one-time thing per marine (until the one at their death) or repeatable?
>>23618353The plan:1. Find nearby non-impirial human world.2. Conquer it.3. Claim it4. Profit.
>>23618353additional question since you are bringing up geneseed abnormalities: do we have any inherent flaws since we are Raven Guard descendants?
>>23618353Send the follow message to Xyptus:"Xyptus, I need you to find out the current status of the assets of one rogue trader by the name of Dercius D'anger. After you are done with that, try to confirm that Faceless is dead, and if he is, find out the details of his death. What he was doing, who he was investiagting, etc."
>>23618361it wasn't done>>23617943>>23618381Currently repeatable once per decade.As you cast visions, you see following scene:>Ceiron is sitting in a strange tavern full of people, drinking some kind of a drink, your warp senses tell you that it's very strong even for an Imperial Assassin. He is waiting for someone.Suddenly, two Kroots enter into the room and screech something at him. He jumps up ant with two precise shots from his Exitus pistol turns their beaks into flying mince. He then starts to run towards the outer bays... You know following things for sure:+He's still loyal to you+He's in Subsector Cryptus+He doesn't know about what happened to Arcon and seen him less recently than you>>23618382Maps are in wiki. just tell me the name of the planet.>>23618401Yes, you have the flaws of the Raven Guard too.>>23618415>It will be done, milord.Roll 2d100

>>23618592Good lord. That may be the most unlikely good roll ever in this game.
>>23618648Scratch that, it IS the most unlikely good roll ever in this game.
>>23618592Impressive. Reports on both things will come next year(it takes time to investigate thinks sectors away).
>>23618676Oh, something does go right this session.
>>23618676things*Also, you'll get best info + some extraalso, you can increase spy strength by 5 in all subsectors as they gain experience.
>>23618581Since we have a vision of the tavern what do the people look like and what does the tavern look like from what we can see?
>>23618581Have our honor guard access the records of the rest of the sector when they have spare time. Not secret stuff, but basic information. Tdlr: time to update the wiki.
>>23618721Until Kroot come, all patrons are human. They look ragged and tough. Some of them wear ship uniforms of custom design, probably servants in different ships. Other than that there is nothing of specific interest.>>23618771(muh elections. you, the players, should update the wiki. I do it on free time only)
>>23618788You want me to make up the rest of the sector?
Rolled 6rolling for yearly vardan income
Tell Magos Explorator Adelphi that Ceiron is on Tartarus."Magos, my sources have found out that the assassin you are looking for is currently somewhere on Tartarus."
Rolled 3>>23618808now for yearly heresy reduction
>>23618804Under my supervision, yes. Also - brand new, shiny maps, like the one of Subsector Tyranus>>23618808>>23618824approved>>23618822>So he isn't serving you, like you said..? My data-core is telling me, that Tartarus is an Imperial station in Sunsector Tyranus. Good then, it should be safe. What is he doing there? When can we meet him? Will you accompany us or will he come here? How did you contact him?
>>23618874>Honored Magos this is fresh information that we are providing out of good faith. It is true that we did not assign him to Tartarus but he is an Imperial assassin and must be given authority to interpret his orders as the situation evolves. He is, I am told, very experienced and I have faith that he acted this way because it was best for the Imperium.
>>23618874To Adelphi:>Ceiron was on a general infiltration posting to await activation, presumably he found it necessary to go to Tartarus. Furthermore, Tartarus station has fallen from Imperial control and as it stands is an independent entity, though not itself directly hostile to the Imperium, it is often host to many unsavoury beings. Extracting Ceiron may be dangerous so my marines and I will get him out of there and deliver him to you.
>>23618936>>23618976Magos Explorator Adelphi nods and doesn't question you anymore.>We just need him to come under control this year. We have timetable to keep up with.
>>23619109>I assure you it's my top priority, thank you for your understanding Magos Explorator.
>>23619109We take a Thunderhawk down to the planet and meet with our marine's there one at a time to get to the bottom of this marriage thing. We give a fair hearing to all but our tone is of mild displeasure at this "distraction" from our duties to the Emperor
Ok then guys, at least we made some progress tonight, sleep tight - we gain 2 xp!Also nameless made sure that something special will happen to Adriel...Please archive and upvote! bye!
