Rolled 62, 97 = 159>>29112691Mighty Battlecruiser "Reverent Spirit" lunges forward through the space and opens fire as soon as "Aspera Dominus" appears in their sights.Lunar-class Cruiser 'Disintegrator' moves foward and fires all of it's weapons.Finally I am rolling 2d100 for revolt aboard Sword Frigate.
Rolled 99, 22 = 121>>29112822Revolt:Officers: 54Crew: 89Crew is gaining upper hand!
Rolled 60>>29112822Aspera Dominus declares Brace For Impact
>>29112822Confirm movements.The Reverent Spirit can fire 4d100 Lances, Aspera Dominus is 'abeam' and >30 distance so the Battlecruiser may fire 1d100 weapons batteries.The Disintegrator can fire 2d100 Lances, Aspera Dominus is 'moving away' so the Cruiser may fire 3d100 weapons batteries.Please state which ship fires first, then roll for each vessel.>>29112952Brace for Impact successful. Aspera Dominus gains a 50+ Invulnerable save, but armament and ordnance is reduced to half strength next turn, and no special orders may be used next turn.
Rolled 10>>29112921I forgot that last turn your speech inspired even more crew members to take up arms in revolt, giving you +10 to Revolt.Officers: 54Crew: 99Officers are making a last stand. If officer roll below 10, revolt will continue as before, but if they fail, then crew will overtake the ship and from next turn they will be in control of the Frigate.
Rolled 100, 55, 51, 6, 90 = 302>>29112974Officers are brave, but the mob overtakes them. Sword Frigate is now under their control.>>29112968Rolling 5d100 for Reverent spirit. First 4 shots are lances.
Rolled 85>>29113050Brace for Impact save vs 1 hull damage
Rolled 89, 7, 29, 85, 68 = 278>>29113050Disintegrator, first 2 are lances
Rolled 28, 50 = 78>>29113102Brace for Impact saves
>>29113116>>29113102>>29113066>>29113050After shields, hits and saves, the final result is one lost hull point. Reucing the Aspera Dominus to 7 Hull Points remaining.Skargan, please roll 1d100, on 85+ the hit is critical.
Rolled 99>>29113146Make this one count, boys!
Rolled 2, 5 = 7>>29113205Rolling for critical effect.
>>29113205Hell yeah. Ave Imperator!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8qp992Dssk
>>29113212Fire!Flames burst through the decks, if not put out, they will cause further damage.Does Skargan wish to launch any ordnance?Space Marine players please give orders for the boarding torpedoes.Also please roll 7d100, an 85+ will put out the fire, if it is not put out, it will inflict 1 extra point of damage and the Aspera Dominus will be *CRIPPLED*Aspera DominusHits Remaining: 7 Ordnance (Torpedoes): * LOADED*Ordnance (Launch Bays): *NOT LOADED*Critical Damage: *FIRE*
Rolled 37, 34, 8, 76, 69, 24, 100 = 348>>29113240Ord Orders: Fighters to take position on Aspera's aft.Boarding Torps: 45 Starboard!Repair Rolls
>>29113256Fighting for their lives, the repair crew spring into action and quell the flames before they can cause any damage.Map updated, Space Marines' turn.
>>29113287Aspera: Forward 20cm, Port turn @ end of movement.Not sure if we're in weapons range of Lunar.Vox frigate:"Aspera Dominus to Remaining Frigate. State your intentions immediately. Are you a traitorous dog of the Iron Monks or Loyal Imperials?"
Rolled 81>>29113240No ordnance, thank you. Emperor protects.Rebellious crew are now arguing between themselves what they should do. rolling d100:1-30 = They will leave the battlefield31-70 = They will observe the battle without getting involved71-95 = They will offer their assistance to space marines96-100 = They will return to fight under the command of ecclesiarchy
>>29113364>Milord, this is acting Commander Brunon of the Frigate "Strongback", I am representative of the crew who are currently in control of the ship. We have overthrown representatives of Ecclesiarchy and our officers after we have heard that we will have to fight Angels of Death. We would like to offer you our services in return for your protection.If you will agree, you will control "Strongback" for the duration of the battle. However due to the recent revolt it will count as Crippled, because there are few officers amongst the new leadership. Also, taking rebels against Imperial authority under your protection might bring some problems afterwards, even if those rebels were friendly to you.
>>29113356Movement made.The Disintegrator is in range of the Aspera Dominus' portside weapons batteries. However, combining the fact that you braced for impact last turn and the enemy is abeam, you only have 1d100 to roll. Considering this wouldn't be enough to cause any damage since the enemy has 2 shields, you don't really need to bother.Ordnance orders?
>>29113425"Commander Brunon, you and your men are a blessing from the Emperor himself. Your loyalty to the Imperium despite the corrupting silver tongue of Haran Dreifus is an example to all. Order your astropaths to send word of Haran Dreifus' treachery to the Sector, including High Cardinal Kest, and together we shall bring justice to those that allowed this heresy to occur."Ord orders: Fighters move with Aspera again. Torps turn 45 starboard once more, and I believe they'll clip the IM flagship
Rolled 16>>29113431Actually, we'll fire at Disitegrator with the 1 shot to prevent LD bonus!
Rolled 17, 59 = 76ORDERS!Battlecruiser "Reverent Spirit" will move 10 million kilometres, then turn portside, use new heading special order(die 1) and then move another 10 whether it was successful or not. At the end of the turn it will fire all weapons that it has within range."Disintegrator" will move, turn 45* portside, then use new heading order(die 2), then move again and in the end will unload it's guns upon AD.
>>29113431Boarding torpedoes strike the front of the Reverent Spirit. Skargan, roll 2d100 for your turrets.Space marines, roll a d100 for each torpedo that gets through (6 minus however manyt 50+s skargan gets).>>29113683Fire ineffective.
