Oestalan Sector thread.Last two threads we finished up with Medigeminus System. Now we need to start on some of the others...Wiki and Archived discussions:http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Oestalan_SectorFirst, the 'point' of Oestalan. We are not trying to recreate the Tiji sector. We are not looking for references to pop culture. We are working on making at least a semi-serious setting for /tg/ to play in.All anon contributions are welcome, but be prepared to justify your ideas if they seem outlandish. No trip or namefags aside from Astro (as he exists as a neutral mediator), this is /tg/'s sector, not the pet project of any one person.Oestalan is mostly a unexplored, wild stretch on the Western Fringe of the Imperium. Only recently reopened to the outside world after suffering through millenia of warp storms. The Imperium is embarking on a Crusade to reconquer this stretch of space, but it is early days yet.
neat. I was hoping someone else would still be interested in thisSo, does the Mechanicus rogue empire get its own system, or do we want to pit someone against them?
>>26339134Last thread we added to the Crusade High Command by rolling up Onfewhe Call - Ordo Xenos Inquisitor-Captain and Amador Galán - Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor.Work was started on some OC xenos, the avian Otroki Dominion. The secessionist(?) Mechanicus mini-empire system was discussed. With three possible internal factions being:>Independence by virtue of the fact that Imperial presence in the sector is virtually nonexistent>Survival of the fittest>The Machine God saved them while the Corpse-God's servants diedFinally, there was some talk about the wayward Tau colony whose Ethereals perished and are now being run by a Fire Warrior junta operating behind a young, inexperienced Water Caste diplomat.
>>26339212Their own system has been the prevailing train of thought thus far. Also, I remember someone saying that the Otroki and Tau were engaged in constant warfare and that the Otroki are desperately trying to find the Tau "homeworld".
>>26339233And we planned on the Otroki and the Tau fighting over the system they share. I think it would help balance the Otroki, who were mentioned to have slave legions, had worse tech than the tau, like ballistic weaponry and missiles rather than plasma and rail guns of the tau or the lasguns and bolters of the imperium. I also had a delicious idea for the Otroki, who, as an avian race, bastardize the Imperial Aquila and use it as a symbol of themselves, turning the humans they rule to worship of the Emperor as a divine figure from the Otroki, to better pacify the population.
>>26339308I like the idea of the Otroki drawing slave human legions from a Feudal World - utilizing them as close combat and boarding specialists because Humans to the Otroki and akin to Orks for the Imperium.
>>26339347Who says the Otroki have to be weak-limbed just because they're avians? I was imagining them as more of a cross between a saurian a flightless bird.
I imagine that the Admech would not be overly hostile toward the other Imperial organizations in the sector. However, they were also some of the only Imperials to remain in and around the sector when the Warp started causing problems. As far as they are concerned, they kept Imperial power strong and in control in the sector. They believe is no reason for Crusade forces to come sniffing around their territory (and to be frank, they consider much of the sector their territory). As long as they are left alone, they won't be a problem, but mess around with them too much, and the Crusade could find itself facing a very uncooperative (or even antagonistic) AdMech.
>>26339426I wasn't picturing the Otroki as weak, I was more picturing the feudal world humans as extremely strong barbarian types.I like that image of the Otroki actually.
Hola folks, was hoping this would show up again.So an idea I had is that Sharktoof, the boss of the Evil Sharkz, is a particular troublemaker in the Green Traverse. Back when he was just a Yoof, when he emerged from the mud his first sight was the blue sun that his birthplace hung near. As he was the only Ork to notice, or care, he believed himself to be the luckiest Ork to ever exist, blessed with the luck of Gork and Mork. As such, he is extremely reckless and doesn't care about repercussions, which has seemed to work out for him as hes still alive.With his prized Dakkajet "Great Blue Deff" hes lead the Evil Sharkz on terrorizing all sorts of folks in the Green Traverse, and is notable for being the only Warboss to ever survive attacking Krumpus Bay (even though his Boyz didn't). Even after that he built his band up and continued to become quite the troublemaker. Has a particular rivalry with Badboyz warboss Mazkaz Kazzaraz, whose blown up many an Evil Sharkz flyer.
>>26339434Yet from the Crusade perspective, this Sector has been sealed off by the warp for hundreds of years, who knows how that has impacted the minds of these 'servants' of the Emperor.They will discover further cause for suspicion when they uncover that the Mechanicus has bastardized the Imperial Creed to justify some of their tech heresy.
on the subject of the tau colony we were talking last thread about how the different castes interacted witch each other. I think it would be cool for each of the 4 castes to try and do things their own way, with lots of butting heads, arguing and the like. Maybe the Shas'o is technically the one running things (or manipulating the water caste I dunno) but there's lots of political stuff going on behind the scenes.One of the younger fire caste members (or even old earth caste guy) think that Shas'o has snapped and are trying to rally supporters to oust him.to be blunt I want political intrigue in my junta
>>26339518Sounds good to me.I'm thinking that the Mechanicus Empire needs to have been dealing with some kind of threat for all of these centuries. What sounds better, constant Eldar incursions into their space or on and off WAARGHs, of which one is ramping up to begin again soon in a system neighboring theirs?
>>26339664Eldar fuckery on account of Necrons?Then again, why not both?
>>26339780How about Eldar fucking up mechanicus attempts to wake up the necrons? Mechanicus fucking love necrons even though they get killed by them
>>26339875Necrons? Where at exactly? There's only one necron presence in the Medigeminus system, and those are already awake, though elsewhere in the sector there could be other necrons.
>>26339664Eldar incursions sounds good.
>>26339531Treat it like Egypt.They want to get rid of the figure head, but they're just going to be replaced by a new figure head. Cycle continues, nothing really changes.
>>26339951Stoping the mech dicking around with an old warp-way entrance or chaos shit?
from last thread we had another system we were working on as it currently stands unnamed pair of stars1.2.Tau Colony 3.4.5.Otroki6.we need to flesh out exactly what the planets are like, names for them and what else is on them.There was talk of having the mechanicus in this system as well I think
>>26339434There was some discussion of a forge world with different factions, one that sort of wanted to return to the imperium, one that wanted to remain neutral and see if the Crusade succeeds, not wanting to draw fire, and one that thought that the Corpse-God was weak and a failure because his servants died, while they, the servants of the Machine God, lived.
>>26340001Chunks of warp-gates and webway are always fun to play around with.
>>26340012The current sugestion for the Otroki is that they have at least a feudal world under their belt, maybe even two since they're more local than the little tau colony, which might be forced to use its superior tech and quick strikes against the overwhelming slave legions of the Otroki
>>26340012I think the Tau were trading with/ inventing for the AdMech to keep them off their back.The Tau world is mineral rich but pretty shitty overall if I remember correctly.
>>26339531Political intrigue needs a subtle writer. Do you think you can pull it off without sounding meatheaded? Let's see what you can do. Be prepared for criticism, but step forward boldly.
>>26339293I'd say that the Mechanicus Empire should control roughly three star systems. It would make it seem more of a challenger/threat to the Imperium, while leaving it weak and small enough the the Imperium and Adeptus Mechanicus can say "We'll leave you guys alone for a bit while we figure out what the hell to do with you."
>>26340119>Political intrigue needs a subtle writer. Do you think you can pull it off without sounding meatheaded?probably not, was just throwing the idea out there so someone with actual talent could work on it
>>26339520I don't think they so much bastardized the Imperial Creed as they did bastardize the Omnissian Creed. Basically, the separatist AdMech believe they should live separately from the Imperium of Man and prusue their own strange worship of the Omnissiah. One of the key tenets is that waste is heresy, and they are constantly looking for ways to reduce waste of all kinds and reuse whatever they can. Corpses become protein bars, ancient technology is reverse-engineered or broken down for parts, and there's no sense of historicity or worshipping something just because it's ancient. They're the first-adopters of the 40k universe.
>>26340119Yes, but I wouldn't want to. I really don't play the Tau or understand them all that well.
As I know very little about anything but Orks, I think I'll continue fleshing out the Green Traverse and let you smarter folks handle the more civilized bits>Rabble Rousa: One part asteroid, one part Ork krooser. A large hunk of Orky engineering, controlled by the Goff Warboss Oogruff Grumble. As Oogruff loves to beat the snot out of anyone and everyone, the Rabble Rousa is almost constantly fighting other Ork warbands or any other forces hanging around the Traverse. The Rabble Rousa is iconic for the giant black fist strapped to the front of it, which Oogruff uses to smash into other ships, or asteroids.>Da Krimzun Wingz: A rather small but tenacious warband, lead by a Flyboy who goes by the name Da Krimzun Beast, who pilots a dark red Fighta-Bommer. Well known for rapidly crippling vessels and then ransacking them, without any prolonged fighting.>Slagreka's Warband: Warboss Slagreka's warband, who have a particular interest in power weapons, Slagreka himself having two power fists in place of hands, he also has something he refers to as "da powa jaw"
>>26339664How about this? The Neo-Mechanicus (I think that might be a good faction name,they see themselves as "evolving" from the waste and primitiveness of the old Mechanicus) were the ones to raid the Eldar first, seeking more efficient technologies. This provoked the Eldar into trying to shut them down and retrieve some sacred Eldar doohickey that the Neo-Mech is using to power their Dyson Sphere.
>>26340012Hows this for a planet, Nasty Biggun, a Death World populated by many Snakebite tribes.
>>26340246Bodies are recycled for food as a matter of course in most hive-worlds, anyway.
>>26340012Make one an uninhabited Dead World with piss-poor resources. There should be some worlds that aren't battlefields in this sector.
>>26340358Yeah, but these Neo-Mechs live solely on human corpse bars, because they control no agri-worlds. They probably have a Forge World, two Mining Worlds, and their Dyson Sphere.
>>26340386maybe the first planet in the system orbits far too close to its stars, it's uninhabitable (except for non sentient xenos that live in the atmosphere and survive on gasses) and pretty much nothing more than lakes of molten metal and fire
>>26340469Let's go with that then.
>>26340386Planet 6: Dead world, very large, very barren, very geologically dead, very cracked and full of holes where old fault lines used to be, very strategically positioned at the outskirts of the system. Being considered as a fortress world by party ______, as its deep fissures still retain some atmosphere. and offer excellent protection from outside threats.
>>26340491Why does it need to have atmosphere?Actually, if the Ostraki just have ballistic weapons and missiles, how are they even a threat to the Tau? Even flak stops stubber bullets.
>>26340538It doesn't need to have atmosphere, but it helps a little bit, and it makes sense for some to remain in deep canyons, if it remains anywhere. Makes it a little easier to make use of the planet.
>>26340491ok so we're currently at Unnamed pair of stars1. Molten world2.Tau Colony (lots of resoruces but a shitty place)3.4.Otroki controlled (maybe very little landmass, mainly around the poles) 5.Otroki homeworld (lots of planes and jungles maybe?)6. Dead world, strategic value
>>26340538Depends on how potent their missiles are I guess.
>>26340585Fuck, figures the Bird people would have a large airforce.
>>26340578But we could force them to build vacuum shelters/fortresses instead, which would be a little bit more interesting, I think. They already have space-faring technology, so they can convert an airless rock without much trouble.
>>26340652hurr, I can't into spelling, but the idea of birds in planes amuses me
>>26340652All those plains, flying through the air.
>>26340585>>26340678What if the fifth planet is a giant mass of floating plains and jungles surrounded by an atmosphere, with the solid planet beneath being mostly volcanic?
>>26340706seems like it fits a race of bird people
>>26340728I though they were dinosaur people?
Should there be a sector thats mainly inhabited by Orks, or something? Or would just an Ork planet suffice?
>>26340778The other sector is already Green Tide: The Orkening.
>>26340774I think the phrase being thrown about was avian
>>26340774>>26340728Semi-saurians with beaks and feathers maybe? The point is they've enslaved a human world and now have slave legions that fight the Tau
Okay, so the Medigeminus is probably surrounded by crazy warp tides and massive, impenetrable nebulae, which is why it's the gateway to the Oestalan Sector.Has the Imperial Crusade managed to penetrate deeper into the Sector or are they stuck there?
>>26340837Imperial Crusade is going to get a bit bogged down, but they will be passing through. They have just barely breached the sector border. >>26340799>>26340778Sector, or system? We're only working on the Oestalan sector at the moment. And only the Green Traverse, a large asteroid belt, is Ork-held.
>>26340832Are they still just a single-system xenos empire? There are at least three habitable worlds in this single star system, that have been colonized by different species? Why not just have all three of them fighting on the same planet?
>>26340666If that's how you'd prefer it, go ahead. I'm just the friendly local voice of reason, or at least I try to be. ;)
>>26340856Oh sorry, I meant a system. The Green Traverse is heavy with space fairing Orks, but having a system, maybe a small one, for Orks would allow much more freedom with the warband creations.
>>26340874I was thinking that the Otroki aren't from sector Oestalan, and are just invading it from their multi-system Dominion. That's why they're fighting the Tau, who are probably trying to "free" whatever system the Otroki have started on
>>26340874I figure humans colonized the system ages ago, some big disaster wiped them out on most of the worlds, after this they went pretty much feral on world4 and were eventually enslaved by the Otroki.Maybe the reason the tau world is so shitty is there was some massive industrial accident that fucked the world up, think Chernobyl/Fukushima just on a much larger scale, theres a huge amount of utterly uninhabitable land and lakes of toxic sludge now
>>26340913Otroki maybe could be interlopers from the Halo Stars. They could be running from something, they could have been sent here, they could just be a freak young, vital race popping up in a moribund environment. >>26340905Orks are always everywhere. A system for them could be perfectly acceptable.
>>26340965That all makes sense, I was just wondering about the Otroki homeworld also being a separate habitable world that was somehow not cleansed by the ancient Imperium or colonized by them.
>>26340994In the same system, that is.
>>26340994Remind me, which segmentum is this sector located in and how close is it to the rim??
>>26340994maybe humans never landed on the Otroki homeworld since it's just awkward with all it's floating plains and the like
>>26341085>>26340994>>26340976I think it would make the Otroki a more credible threat if they were invading the Oestalan sector and weren't from it. Perhaps they already have slave legions from human worlds they've already conquered for their growing Dominion.
>>26339518Sharktoof, Warboss of the Evil Sharkz
>>26341027Pacificus Segmentum, fairly close to the rim, probably bordering the Halo Zone at the far edge, so we can write about that if we want. Probably a large sector, as this Segmentum is so poorly claimed.
>>26341114Are they really ever going to be a credible threat? When people are dreaming up their exploits in the sector, it is it going to be against the bird-people? Or against hordes of orks.
>>26341114maybe keep them in Sector just give them a few more planets in a different system
>>26341158Birds with autoguns and missiles. They can't even conquer a tiny Tau splinter state founded by surivivors of a crashed warship. The Otroki are just there for comic relief. They'll be standard monologuing villains who make a big noise about how deadly their weapons are and how big their ships are and how majestic their empire and armies are, and Sharktoof or the Imperium or the Mechanicus are just going to slap them in their faces with metaphorical weapon-dicks.
Should there be a Pleasure World somewhere, mostly untouched by Imperium or other races?
>>26341158People will write about whatever captures their fancy. So long as we don't go overboard MAKING these guys a threat, by being stupidly Mary-Sue, it'll all work out fine.
>>26341216No, I'm being serious. I think that would be pretty funny, if we made the Otraki into a somewhat minor threat that thinks it's really going to be the next Galactic Empire.
What do you guys think of these models as being representative of the Otroki?
>>26341279oh good lord
>>26341254Well, the internet is what it is, sans pitch and tone, but, your comment came off as pretty hostile and mocking. Comedy is ok, and would be refreshing to include in a universe where everything is always deadly 100%, but just keep an eye on the derp.
>>26341279I'm almost tempted to say yes.
>>26341279Don't look very threatening. Of course, if we're going for comedic relief, that may work.
>>26341279That's not bad. Comedic, but not *totally* retarded. It fits if you're setting them up as a weaker, overconfident race, and not your personal murderthon or something.
>>26341334They need to be threatening to things like undefended feudal worlds or planets where the natives are divided and not unified, so the Otraki can ply their influence and technological advantage. They just cannot match the actual big players in the sector, that's all.
>>26341334>>26341326>>26341302Keep in mind these guys would probably be shooting artillery and missles from behind a horde of human feudal-world slave-soldiers. So, they're phsyical prowess in battle might not be too important, just that they have a better start than the Tau, who they're fighting
>>26341193Pretty much this. The Dominion is the North Korea of the sector. This invasion from their home sector is the first in their national history, and they think that they're the realist shit, as they've only encountered feudal humans and now the splinter Tau. They even think that the crashed colony ship is the Tau home world.
>>26341439haha, I like that
>>26341439They gonna kill a commissar and think they've done in the Emperor?
>>26341377>>26341375Sounds all right. They're basically a tier or three behind the major players, but they stand a good chance of claiming minor worlds, isolated tribes, or whatever. However, if left unchecked they may yet become a threat. There would almost certainly be a day of reckoning for them when the Crusade reaches them, because that sort of opportunistic xenos is absolutely on the kill-list. Might have some good fluff potential, writing about how these xenos are debating how to survive the coming shitckicking. Appease, evade, surrender, hide, etc. Might cause social upheaval.
>>26341279I see them more as warhammer style lizard men just with feathers and longer necks, also probably not with an aztec art direction either
>>26341460Basically yeah, ha.
>>26341466I feel like it would be even better if they reacted to the Imperium's crusade with blustering confidence and complete conviction that these "humans" will finally pose a challenge to their might. Time to finally fight a true, worthy opponent to the great Otraki Dominion.What is their motivation? Just, pride and wanting to expand?
>>26341533maybe they're a theocracy and their magic bird gods are telling them to go out into the stars and conquer
>>26341560magic bird gods? Starting to remind me of Tzeench's crew...
>>26341533Motivation is up to you guys, it's not my show. I just toss ideas out every so often.
>>26341560>Magic Bird Gods
>>26341588completely unintentional, just figured birds get a bird god, maybe a pantheon of various bird like creatures representing different things; wealth, power, death and some other stuff as well
>>26341628who's to say they weren't influenced by Chaos to fuck with humanity?
They should be like Skeksis from the Dark Crystal
>>26341639I don't think everything needs to be chaos, sometimes xenos are just weird and alien
>>26341533Do they even currently know that the Crusade force exists? How?
I have an old IG regiment I was working on for Only War if anyone was interested in reshaping it for this whole dealie
>>26341609hhehheh. Gotta love them Pkunk, but no video game references, pop culture references, etc.
>>26341665Maybe they have an Otraki caste system, to go along with their slaves and such. You have Otraki at the bottom, basically slaves for having a certain color feather or beak. Then laborers, tradesmen, and master crafters. Above them you have some sort of merchant class, and then a layer of nobles. Separate and above the rest is a priestly caste that gives them commandments based on the movements of the various stars and planets. Think the Pkunk or Ssi-Ruuk.
>>26341697sweet, let's see it
>>26341697I threw my IG regiment into the crusade force. That seems to be where they're going to go. You just gotta figure out where and what they're fighting.
>>26341697Cool, maybe they can be part of the Crusade.
>>26341720The planet of Sigma-Nobless IX, a hub of socialization between the rich and powerful. Long standing bloodlines dating back to former planetary governors, inquisitors, and many others of nobility led to large ruling families, each very proud of their heritage. Their Imperial Guard regiments are continued through traditions of ensuring that the blood of the valiant and honorable be propagated and sharpened in the heat of battle. Veterans return to their home planet after many years with an improved political and social status amongst the populace. The commanding officer of the Nobless 27th Princeps, Regimental Commander Malcolm Tronstad IV, is frequently scrutinized by Sigma-Nobless IX's more traditional factions. Son of Malcolm Tronstad III, head patriarch of one of the larger and more powerful families, he attained his position by right of blood. Unorthodox in tactics and behavior, his actions inject concern among many. However, his forces have always managed to pull through due to quick wits and sharp blades. The 27th continues its noble houses to whatever planets they are sent to, producing large fortress-mansions wherever they strike, both elegant and deadly. These military bases are placed to secure crucial locations and ensure that none forget that the guardsmen there are surely of highest breed. Often these fortifications are designed by skilled architects and orbital-dropped onto the battlefield. It is a long standing tradition of Sigma-Nobless IX to ensure all its citizens are well trained in the arts of war, especially hand-to-hand combat. Before entering service, many soldiers are gifted their father's well-crafted blades as family heirlooms. Due to the sharpness of Tronstad's tongue and a healthy dose of inter-family social manipulation, the 27th never does without. Extra ammunition and food always manages to make its way to the soldiers. Despite whatever criticisms the families have for him, a poorly equipped regiment is not one of them.
>>26341716Oh, and the priests are actually somewhat psychic, so the influence they believe the stars and planets has on events is actually brought about by their gestalt will.

>Da Nasties A particularly threatening Ork Warband, lead by Gorzuh, Da Nasties are feared in the Medigeminus System for being human hunters. With the arrival of the Osetalan Crusade, Gorzuh and Da Nasties became much more active. Gorzuh, for reasons unknown, has a powerful dislike for humans, and goes on raids to any place where humans have settled. Da Nasties have been involved in many attacks against the Imperium as they bring their forces into the Sector.
>>26341756I sense the temptation of chaos here.
>>26341746Why not keep this planet, Sigma-Noblesse, as the only world in the entire sector that's still loyal to the Imperium? Going from how subsector aurelia is reprsented in DoW, a sector ought to be huge, with enough size for at least one world that stays true to the God-EmperorThey could have a generally isolationist attitude due to being the only loyal forces in the entire sector before the Crusades arrival
>>26341946>>26341756So do I. But that doesn't mean they need to worship a major chaos god. Who's to say the Otraki haven't managed to dream up a greater daemon for their entire people, like the Orks have Gork and Mork?
>>26341948wouldn't loyalist forces attempt to retake the sector, even in the absence of the greater imperium?
>>26341746I've certainly seen worse. A well-provisioned regiment will be useful on campaign. Wonder what happens when they really get into the thick of it way out here in Oestalan, and the supplies inevitably run low, when they're used to having what they need.
>>26341948Considering their strong emphasis on tradition and heritage with a disdain for drastic change, it wouldn't be too unreasonable to think they would continue their loyalty out of sheer stubbornness; hell it could be all politics amongst the great families
>>26341985Maybe they lost all knowledge of ship-building? And if their Navigators all died out or none were ever on the planet, then they can't travel through the warp anyway.
>>26341985Maybe, but if you're just one world with the Mechanicus gobbling up entire systems, and xenos moving in on the sector, they might try and just hold onto their own star system. Maybe millitary service is key to political advancement, like in ancient rome, due to all the fighting that Noblesse-Sigma needs to do to stay free and loyal to the Emperor
>>26341991>>26341948An isolated world isn't likely to have the resources to go crusading, well-equipped regiment or otherwise. These people would have been held on their world at all costs, if they've been surrounded by hostiles for so long. The nobility would be loath to strip the one protection they've always known, if they're native to Oestalan Sector.
>>26340832>>26340774Dino Birds would be friendly to a mix of Kroot and Lizardmen parts for converting, just more bird than dino, like a humanoid archeoptryx
>>26342023So it would be more like a hard crunchy fortress world with a creamy center of noblemen
>>26342064And tough gitz to fight, wotz got right proppa shiny dakka and gibbinz
>>26341978Some chaos ties could open up venues for conections to Slynth or Loxotl mercs to bolster their forces
>>26342099>Implying the fearsome Otraki need anything other than their slave legions cluttering up their masterful battle plans
>>26342064Could be. They might be loyal to the Imperium, at least publicly, but the nobility might not be happy to see the crusade at ALL. The rank and file could appreciate it, because faith was important to them (because it kept them in line), but the nobles are worried they might lose their personal army, and therefore power. Thoughts?
>>26342099Chaos xenos is always an odd road to travel. It might require some extra work to sound right.
>>26342125I like this. And seeing as how we seem to be setting up the various factions with opponents, why not pit the people of Noblesse-Sigma against the Green Traverse?
>>26342125That wouldn't be too much of a stretchThe higher nobles begrudgingly put their men on the fighting lines in order to keep that Imperial cash/political power flowing
We've got a whole sector full of Imperials that don't worship the Emperor. Place is bad news.
>>26342125Sounds good. Adds more tension to the mix.
>>26342151Could be a place they've sent the men for years. Fight and die, maybe to claim the entire system. For the nobles, of course. And the Emperor. At least that's what the propaganda posters say.
>>26342151The people of Sigma-Noblesse put dignity, honor, and good manners ahead of all else, causing Orks to be their very antithesis
>>26342165How long has the sector been lost to the Imperium anyway? Before or After the Reign of Blood?
>>26342125Makes sense, good old fashioned power plays can keep the interplay of conflict going nicely>>26342119Heh, egotism could be a good trait for them, but then again who says they only enslave humans?
>>26342212I believe it was some time around 600.M41
>>26342214Nothing. I'm totally in approval of them having a few more slave xenos.
>>26342212We haven't established a timeline yet. The sector's been lost for a long time at the very least. It may never have been truly under Imperial control, just with a few isolated bastions, most of which were destroyed. This is a lawless and deadly land, by Imperial standards. It just opened up when the warp storms subsided about 100 years ago, though, so we do know that much.
>>26342241Excellent, if we can get a slaan presence in here my lizardmen conversion plans will be perfect
>>26342229That's really, really short...At least a millenium for things to go to shit without some sector-wide warp storm would make more sense.
>>26342308I'm of the opinion that they were lost for a while. Just choose the dates carefully, inconsistencies tend to piss people off. GW gets away with it cause they can do whatever the fuck they want. Whatever we establish needs to be adhered to, kk?
>>26342330Found this in a different thread. Fuck me if it don't look like a sweet-ass chaos world. http:images/1375241762572.jpg
>>26342363>Penis heads and flying sperm
>>26342378If you say so, friend Slannesh.
>>26342378>>26342363Well, there goes my sleep.
>>26342392His hat is not kick-ass enough.
>>26342392Orks get all the best art>tfw there is no way to make your necrons that epic without going full sillymode
>>26342569Just get a little cyber-Egyptian on them
>>26342577>putting egyptian accesssories on necrons that all inhabit canoptek constuctsAt least I think those are that guy's
>>26342563Now he's got Da Hat
>>26342728Not sure. I kind of envisioned a blend between Raptors and Archaeopteryx
>>26342728Needs more cassoarry.
>>26342767You mean the Jurassic park fantasy raptors right?, none of that realistic crap
>>26342728Not enough of the emu in them. They need bigger, more threatening beaks. Like, beaks that will crack your skull the same way a parrot can crack nuts.
>>26342728Give it a leather jacket
>>26342818I recomend looking at pics of terror birds and bearded vultures
>>26342809Perfect, I liked Tomb's suggestion of making them compatable for Lizardmen conversions
>>26342885Interesting. I don't suppose you could make longer feathers for the arms and head?
>>26342885Beak or snout, both are good, tails feels a but short/bare, but alteering both might be a bit much
>>26342885Those toes would not support that body. Too close together, not large enough.
>>26342885Longer feathers would be better, give them a plummage thing going on.
Oi, 'ow do I upload images to da wiki, I've never done it before.
Has anyone noticed that someone has nearly tripled the size of the Tiji Sector article, after this new sector was created?
>>26343180Yeah, evidently someone named SkullKrusher's been putting in some serious hours. Oh well. It doesn't affect us, and if we've inspired them to keep working, all the better for them and /tg/ canon as a whole, I suppose.
>>26343157>>26342885>>26342728Why not include all three pics as subspecies of the Otroki? It could fit in with the caste idea mentioned earlier
>>26343263That's an interesting idea. Anything that opens up more room for interaction between people, races, internal affairs, or whatever is always going to add a feel of solidity and "realism" to the fluff. These things don't just exist in a vacuum, sealed off from outside influences, you know.
So basically Sigma Nobless IG are Kriegers/Steel Legion with cravats
>>26343251>SkullKrusherI remember that name. That's the Shas'o, or at least the name he uses when he runs games for us. I'm pretty sure he's just bending the sector to his whims at this point. He did say he was going to initiate a purge and cleanup of the sector.
>>26343288Maybe there are even some dissidents from the Otroki Dominion that hate their caste system. That could open up potential for someone running a DH campaign in the sector to have the players interact with Otroki beyond killing them
>>26343263I mean, it's up to all of you guys. I just like to sketch. I wouldn't mind if we came up with some other aesthetic if no one is feeling it.
>>26343291And fancy gear and knickacks
>>26343288Also, someone needs to fix the Green Traverse. The belt's not in the middle of the system, it surrounds both stars, analogous to where our Oort cloud is. Makes it extremely large, to have room for all these Klanz and Warbosses to roam.
>>26343333>QuadsThe gods have spoken. Orks intentionally pick fights with the soldiers of Nobless-Sigma for their fancy gubbinz and kitz
>>26343310I still like the >>26341279Otroki. We should use them as the "Slave" Otroki, with their heavily feathered bodies as proof of their impurity or something.Or use them as the Noble Otroki, and the progressively feather-less Otroki indicate lower ranking members of the species.
>>26343342Maybe it was, but it isn't any more. The fact it rings the middle of the system is what is bogging down the crusaders.
>>26343310Make the feet much bigger and make 'em a bit more humanoid/upright. Should work out.
>>26343383I thought it was the fact that they surround the whole thing that was keeping the crusade out, preventing them from tromping right in. Not much of a Traverse if you don't have to traverse it to get to some of the system.
>>26343342Why not make it a double-looped asteroid belt, looping around the two stars like a mobius strip?
>>26343421Well, we had three belts originally. The Traverse on the outside, one moderate belt around Medigeminus somewhere, and a hot, ionized belt of mostly gas with a few boiling hot bits of debris near the neutron star.
>>26343421Because that could never happen in actual astronomy.>>26343414It surrounds all the Imperial worlds
>>26343421More complicated than it needs to be.
>>26343475that's more like it
question, are we going to see any tyranids?
>>26343475Not a fan of the gun. Can you make it look more like a knight's lance? I think that could look cool.
>>26343499>>26343487Stop tripping wrenloft.And yes, there are plans for tyranids, right now though we're focusing on the tau, oktori and mechanicus worlds.
>>26343499Stop namefaggingWe're on the wrong end of the galaxy for Tyranids. I'm guessing it's just a few Genestealer cults?
>>26343499Very unlikely. There are a few genestealer cults, and they're summoning some nids, but there's no nids out here yet, so far away from their canon locations.
>>26343475perhaps you may want to make the lower leg/calf section a bit thicker?
How come Krumpus Bay isn't in the wiki?
>>26343609It's still very much a work in progress. Feel free to add it, just make sure you've read what we've established before you write something incorrectly.
>>26343640Oh, I wasn't planning on adding it, just wondering why it wasn't on there yet.
>>26343609It is now.
>>26343703Nicely written, well done.
Half the planets are jungle worlds or dead worlds as far as the wiki is concerned
>>26343813Eh, its a theme of the system.We're focusing on different systems right now.
>>26343813There are always lots of dead worlds. The jungle worlds are due to the Rex giant star.
Any more OC xenos in the works? Granted we shouldn't do too many by 2 or 3 more couldn't hurt, right?
>>26343475As the anon who originally proposed the Otroki, I fucking love this design. Keep up the good work drawbro
>>26343842I'd be up for detailing a xenos race for whatever world the Tau landed on. Something to make them a little more capable of fighting despite being seperated from other Septs
>>26343842Let's not deluge the sector too much just yet. Unique xenos are always a touchy subject with people, due the the risk of being overpowered self inserts that the authors fight to the death to defend. I'd kind of like to do some random rolling, maybe a Craftworld or something. What say you all?
>>26343894Sure, anon, give me more reason to stay up unreasonably lateProceed
>>26343894(That being said, I made one myself a long time ago, I could share if desired.)
>>26343912KK. we'll ignore the Date Sighted, it'll be whenever the Crusade finds them, probably. Roll 1d10 for onboard biome. Everyone's on their honor not to spam roll.
>>26343916perhaps we could leave that for the next system
right, what do I win?
>>26343961Swampy/Boggy. Looks like they might have some damage to the environmental systems. 1d12 for gods worshipped.
>>26343894Random rolling should be used more often, the moment I can use a pc instead of my phone I'll roll up some stuff, be it chapters, planets, xenos, eldar, necrons or whatever
>>26343999Cegorach, the Trickster God. Maybe he's the one who covered their ship in swamp, but I bet there's some Harlequins backing up the Craftworld. 1d8 for most common Warrior Path.
>>26343870Well, we could either go this route or have the Tau use mercenary Orks due to their trading contacts in the Green Traverse.
>>26343916You could pitch it right after we finish this roll set
>>26344045Path of the Dreamer. Not sure what that means, cause I'm not up on my Eldar fluff, but there you have it. Show me a 1d10 for military strength!
>>26344080Nominal Strength, not damaged, not bloated. A good foundation for getting shit done, Eldar style. Give me a d8 for favored tactics.
Some names for the Joint Tau/Otraki system:>Zita >Herrion>Catillo>Gaelos >Constantius Personally I like Catillo
>>26344113Terror and Precision attacks! Mayhaps they dream, to divine their opponent's weaknesses and worst fears, then bring them to pass?A big one, roll 1d15 for their favorite units!
>>26344138Name it something non-Imperial, probably. It's not the Emperor's domain.... yet.
>>26344158Fire Dragons, Fire Dragons errywhere. 1d10 for the Craftworld's hero!
>>26344138 I was hoping the Otroki system could be based on Czech since Otroki is the Czech word for slave with a "k" instead of a "c"
>>26344180Aspect Warrior! Normally, we'd roll again to see what kind he is, but given the previous roll, I'm going to say he's a Fire Dragon of great renown!1d6 for deeds of legend.
>>26344161Those could still be imperial designations for the planets, even if they have no real claim yet
>>26344161Wasn't the whole sector imperial before the storms? So it would have an imperial designations?
>>26344220heheheheheheheh. He killed Tau, in such numbers that they actively send stealth teams to hunt his ass at the merest suggestion he's nearby. Maybe he's the reason there's so few Tau in the sector, despite their best efforts? The Dreamer in Fire, divining the Tau's plans, then swooping in to burn big holes in what vehicles they've scraped together? 1d8 for allies of the craftworld.
>>26344285Could be. I figured it might be nice to have indigenous names. Doesn't have to be though.
"When....it comes ta 'untin, da best offense is a sneaky one. Make sure ya don't get seen, by da prey or by da not-prey, gits 'oos is on da run is jumpy gits, and if dey feel dat somfin is up, deys will 'ightail it outta dere. So...make sure yous aint seen till ya sink da choppa into da git yous 'untin."-Blood 'Ound Boss Ol' Sladder to a Blood 'Ound recruit.
Rolled 5I am loving this craftworld so far. Fire Dragons, Fire Dragon hero AND he fucked up the Tau? These guys deserve some special attention
>>26344303Human renegade allies. Someone on this Craftworld's been a busy boy, talking to the human pirates and such to find friends in a desolate, hostile sector. 1d9 for favored enemy. Some of these may be ignored, like Tyranid.
>>26344287I love how much this sector is turning against the Tau; making life for them hell.It is going to drive them to do some pretty extreme things.
>>26344332From what I've learned of /tg/, that's exactly how most of us will like it. Chaos space marines are their enemies. Not entirely sure how that one works, so I'll let you guys think of something. Maybe someone should roll a Chaos warband next, for these eldar to fight. I like how Tau aren't their favored enemy though. More like vermin or zoo animals to be restrained.
>>26344365Anyway, here's the Xenos race I rolled up. I have stats for them from long ago rolling with the Koronus Bestiary, but that's pretty unimportant. 2 parter."Xenos Class: Xenos/Oscuros Minoris (normal)/Majoris (Post-mating swarm). This race is known for its advanced miniaturized IR laser technology, which is virtually useless against heavily armed targets, but utterly deadly against any exposed flesh. Powerful Psykers of this Xenos class are nearly always pyromancers. This species is extremely dangerous in close combat, as it possesses powerful jaws and is capable of fighting with almost total concealment and speed, unusual traits for creatures this size. In general, this xenos works in small groups, lacking the fellowship to band in groups, although shortly after a warp storm has passed, the mating cycle of the Boteh-zsc is triggered, causing mass migrations, followed by mating, and then a ravenous, animalistic desire to consume flesh in order to replace body weight lost during the protracted mating process. This wave of xenos assaults nearby worlds en masse, often wiping out the inhabitants. The Boteh-zsc are generally friendly towards the Imperium, even though their appearance is unnerving to loyal Imperial citizens, but the periodic mating frenzies preclude any chance of the God-Emperor accepting them into his arms until such time as they evolve out of that trait. Inquisitor’s Notes: These foul xenos, despite their unusual goodwill towards our brethren, are exceptionally dangerous, even when faced with an Inquisitor’s skills. They have an uncanny ability to hide and conceal their minds with psyker powers, yet they also can tear a man’s head off with one bite. Under no circumstances should even the rumor of Boteh-zsc infiltration into the Emperor’s holy domain be ignored. These xenos see with heat, and have proven to be highly vulnerable to flamer weapons, which invariably cause blindness. "
>>26344365Weren't there those Warp Riders or whatever they were called?
>>26344389"Current Imperial protocol lists the Boteh-zsc as too difficult to find and eradicate, yet too dangerous to ignore. Officially, they are to be hunted like any other xenos, but the unique weaponry they trade with the Imperium is of great interest to those worlds on the Ork border. Most Imperial governors overlook the Boteh-zsc as long as no Inquisitors are around. Many of our less valiant Inquisitors do the same, as these beasts are more than capable of killing psyker and marine alike. The Boteh-zsc are well aware of the power the Imperium of Man can bring to bear and we believe it is this factor above all else that keeps them at a respectful distance. It is unknown how extensive their population truly is."
>>26344138here are some more namesLeuganisEilögriAb-hedahWerazu
>>26344392That's... a touchy subject atm. Can't remember if the community approved of them in this sector or not.
>>26344389should the word be Obscuros Minoris?
>>26344332Hey the idealists in this setting should have the odds staked against them, make sure they have their work cut out for them, even if you don't plan on them breaking, hell expecially, if some people had remembered this the KI might have been salvagable
>>26344432Might be a typo.
>>26344430If it means anything I approve of the Warp Riders, I like the irony of chaos being one of the least grimdark factions in this sector
>>26344406>>26344389It sounds like these guys could be buddies with the Mechanicus, trading tech for safety from the Imperium as it returns in force.
Since a majority of the factions seem to have a heavy "jungle" theme, maybe the Chaos should be some sort of strange Spaniard styling, Tzeentch led, full of trickery and thirst for power
>>26344307"I'z da luckiest Ork in all a Orkdom, I'z flown frough da Green Traverse a fousand times n' a fousand times again! Though my Boyz 'ave come n' gone every time, I'z never been shot down! I'z attacked Krumpus Bay, I'z attacked Da Bad Bommer, I'z killed 'undreds of snotin' warboss who-da-bes and to dis day I'z still buzzin' dese blastin' rocks! So I welcome dis Krusade, cuz it just gives me more fings ta shoot at in me dakkajet!"-Boss Sharktoof of the Evil Sharkz
>>26344406Basically, they make people nervous, because they're stealthy for their size, have minor warp sensitivity, and are technology users, with innovation in Infrared technology. They are friendly to almost everyone, but no one is really sure why, and that breeds distrust in equal measure to the greed for their boosted laser technology. And, as might be fitting for this sector, their breeding cycle has something to do with the frequent warp flares in the sector, and their homeworld will likely be near a warp rift, concealed from most eyes. They don't travel in large groups though, making large scale armed resistance to the Imperium unlikely at best, but you sure wouldn't want to be caught in a dark corridor by one.
>>26344510Very possible. They're a little like the Slaugth, but with specialized IR lasers instead of all manner of stuff and biotech.
>>26344508Wait the riders are currently putting about on the planetoid "Silence" where your necrons are waking up, they are a bunch of angry inhumanoid old bots just short of demanding the punkass pary animals get off their property
>>26344604No, I think the Riders had a Dust Bowl planet or something elsewhere in the sector. It's not as comedic as what you've suggested.
>>26344508Agreed.I'm kinda of sick of the usual kitten eating depiction of Chaos.Still bad guys most certainly, just not as two-dimensionally so.
>>26344565Possible slaanesh tuggings going on?
>>26344565Would they be the type to hire themselves out as mercenaries? Hang out on some neutral world bar, asking humans questions to sate their curiosity? What are their general motivations?
>>26344634So classic chaos, with the glam rock marines, before they started wearing human skins on their armor and such
>>26344323Should have done this earlier, but whatever. Summary of Craftworld _______:Swampy/boggy biome. Maybe something happened to the life support.Worships Cegorach. Maybe *he* did something to the life support. Path of the Dreamer. (/tg/, fill in the blank here)Nominal (average) strength. Terror and Precision attacks. Maybe planned/plotted/divined through dreams?Favorite thing ever is Fire Dragons, in honor of their hero _______, who slaughtered, and continues to slaughter, assloads of Tau whenever they poke their heads up, to the point where they go apeshit at the mere hint of his presence. (I like The Dreamer in Fire for the name, but its up to you guys)Allied with human renegades, maybe the pirates of the Medegimenus system, maybe someone else. Enemies of Chaos Space Marines, nature to be determined.
>>26344656Individuals might, but the price is more likely to be favors than money, and reneging on the deal is a bad idea. >>26344639Not really, no. They're attuned to the Warp, but they don't worship it. It's one of the more atavistic traits of the species, not really a conscious thing. When the sky changes colors, everyone just sort of knows what's up.
>>26344694Also bikers, every last one of 'em bikers.They're a pretty cool new faction.
>>26344553"A Weirdboy for a Boss? Das so pafetic it makes me almost too sorry ta krump da lot! Awright Boyz, lets put dese gits outta dere misry fer dere 'boss' starts screamin' at his feet!"-Warboss Haggnatak's last words during his confrontation with Twitchum's warband, moments before his head explodes.
>>26344787Ha! Can you do some quotes for the Tau, Imperial or Necron presence?
>>26344774I thought they were all right, because of how new they were, not having to be forced in anywhere from an older setting. But, it caused one almighty shitfit, and I think it would be wiser to postpone discussing them until the sector is more established, so we don't lose the early momentum again.
>>26344787Not bad at all. Do continue. Make sure what you add gets onto the 1d4chan wiki, so we don't lose it. This is what we need to make the sector feel alive.
>>26344843I'm inclined to ignore anyone who chucks a shit fit personally.But you're right, let's drop it for now.
>>26344839I don't have enough confidence in my knowledge of Tau, Imperials or Necrons to try, and I'm just kind of doing these to procrastinate from going to bed.
>>26344876Yeah, I get it, its just that the Necrons and Chaos have both been just kinda shoved into the corners
>>26344839Give us some more details about them. The Orks have some pretty major characters that hav ebeen posted in the thread, but I know nothing about Tau characters or the Necron characters.
>>26344858Not sure where I would put the quotes if I were to add them.
>>26344899Its okay, besides we don't have many names for the crons or Tau yet anyway
>>26344918Necrons are established as the ice world of Silence, and they got some fluffing earlier, though more should be done. Chaos hasn't been marginalized, it's just that without lots of human presence in this sector like other sectors might have, there's not as much room for lots of chaos activity. Could be some warbands roaming around attacking these xenos empire though, and we have a new Craftworld that might need a nemesis. Could roll it up, but it's 2 am here, and I'm starting to get hella tired, so I'd rather someone else do it, if we want to do that.
I can Try my hand at this quote thing"Greater good? These Tau know nothing of the concept, we will show them our Greater Good, to free the lesser races, from the burden of freedom"Warlord Chrikutk on the initial message sent by Tau haling signals
The Necrons are easy, just take a suitably ancient sound dynasty name and apply it. Something from the Bronze Age, tweaked to be more 40k, and slap that shit on and call it a day.
Oh, and if you guys decide my xenos race is something you want to include in this sector, I would ask that someone else post them to the wiki. It feels like the height of hubris to put your own stuff into a community work, and violates the standards I'm trying to hold myself to as an unofficial moderator for this project.
>>26344950There could be a lot of necrons here in the sector, actually. There hasn't been as much activity to disturb them, so they might be a more dangerous threat than usual of a lot of dynasties wake up together, or a large dynasty or two emerges. Not *too* powerful though, lest it become clearly imbalancing to the sector dynamic.
"In this strange new land, we have found ourselves surrounded by liars and slavers that would see us broken.

>>26345119Eh, I prefer the canoptek dynasty to be relatively small. We don't want to be like GW and say "Hey, all the worlds in this sector are secretly tombworlds."
>>26345176Well limit it to two or three to get more than canopteks running about
>>26345167top lel. >>26345176I'm an idea guy. Use what you like, discard what you don't. It's all for the community, and the fun of worldbuilding.
"It is always interesting to consider the Human mind. True, any could attribute some deviance to the Warp Storms that once plagued this are.

>>26345158I like it!>>26345169Very nice, very fluffy.
>>26345158Is there a name scheme for Water Caste Tau, like Shas'O and such for the Fire Caste?
>>26345261I'm picturing a red haired guy with glasses speaking into a vox recorder while looking down on a non-Imperial world with an expression of vague disgust.
"My grandfather led the first expeditions into the Green Traverse, and my father claimed the skull of Warlord Gargitz. I intend to show the noble houses that I am more than capable of leading the 27th, and I will take Krumpus Bay with my own two hands if need be. Ah, Cooper. Warm up the Chimera for me, will you? And bring me my favorite chainsaw while you're at it, the fresh boys need a show."Regimental Commander Malcolm Tronstad IV, before his speech to the recruits of Sigma-Noblesse 27th Princeps
>>26345176>>26345248Well, I've got one more roll project in me before I head to bed. If you guys like, I'll roll for a Necron Dynasty to be placed elsewhere in the sector.
The Omnissia has shown us thru the most trying of times, while the rotting flesh God the Imperum demands we yeild to, demands us attribute the Machine God's glory too, left us here to rot as he does, let his followers come, and see first hand their mistakes"Adeptus Mechanichus Magos, Gormant Theadams, on the Imperial Crusade

>>26345261"When I arrived here, our fleet passed by the large asteroid belt, apparently the locals refer to it as "The Green Traverse" The name immediately made sense to me when we were attacked by numerous Orks in space vessels. Though we made it through, the incident has has me rethinking most of what I know of the Greenskins, I knew they could scour a planet with their numbers, but that they could survive, nay, thrive in nothing but a ring of floating rocks, has left me quite stunned."-Kaldus Rainchild, Captain of the Emperor Class Battleship Path to Glory

Ok, guys, I'm signing off for tonight. Try to keep things civil and constructive, ok?This thread's getting close to autodeath, so you all might want to consider archiving the good bits to the 1d4chan wiki, http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Oestalan_SectorStart a new thread if you wish, but do wait until this one's actually dead, as it sparked some significant hostility earlier today. Fluff as much as you can, I'm glad you guys liked that Eldar craftworld we made, and I hope you like my xenos race. Maybe tomorrow we can craft some Necrons or something.

>>26345770That seems pretty much covered by Sigma Nobless since they've pretty much all got high quality ancient family heirloom master crafted weapons
>>26345850A DRASTIC exaggeration but you get the point
The human peoples of the Morgozen star are a hardy band of nomads, adapted to live a hard roaming existence on a wind swept world of far reaching plains. What little arable land is hotly contested amongst the natives, a constant shifting war between the nomads and the pastorals.Though they have been cut off from the Imperium of Man they still retain vestiges of the Creed. They worship the Emperor of All and his Holy Son the Primarch and they curse his wicked son the Traitor.Their world has seen chaotic incursions in the past, renegade pirates and daemonic activity. They have developed a belief that all men must keep their faces covered at all times outdoors or amongst strangers, lest a witch learn their features and use it to cast spells on them.They still maintain las and melta weaponry, highly customised due to their isolation, and a cult has developed around the use of power swords. The Sword Cults are warrior fraternities who band together in battle. Every man is expected to carry a sword, but only the elite are given the power weapons that allow them to join a Sword Cult.They see it as their duty to hunt down all possibly daemonic activity in their lands, and have a reputation for zealousness and tenacity in their efforts. If an innocent tribe is wiped out in the name of preserving the world as a whole it is considered an acceptable loss.
"Oi, Stimson. Did something about that bird seem odd to you? I can't help but get this feeling it was... intelligent.""Nah, we just happened upon his territory, see? He just got angry and rammed Eddy for trespassing. Probably was picking up his lasgun out of curiosity, I reckon.""Yeah, but the thing is, I could have sworn it was saying something in Low Gothic, but I just couldn't make out what it was saying.""Oh, you always have your mind in the clouds, boy. I'm starting to wonder how you made it past basic. Oh well, who cares. Tasted good anyhows."- Conversation between two soldiers of the Arkturi 11th Regiment on Figaro, two days before official first contact with the Otroki.

Archived for future generations.
>>26346170that's going to be somewhat problematic, I'm not certain how good my writing is.
>>26346104When did they engage each other on the ground? The Crusade isn't there yet...If anything they should have only had space contact.
