Voiced Intro(Kudos to Voiceanon and Sonlee for this): http://vocaroo.com/i/s1Grk05b6F0vYour name is Michael Dunkin, and you now work for the Inquisition. Previously you were a sergeant in the 291st Cadian Shock Troopers, but now you find yourself in the company of Inquisitor Christina Massey of the Ordos Xenos. After saving her life at the cost of your men and your life (the old one, at least), you've been officially proclaimed a dead hero and recruited into her retinue. Now, with your new life and future in her hands, you're tasked with looking after Christina's well being. And whatever else that entails.You've finally received details on what you've been hired to do for the sympathizers, and it's about as simple and easy as you expected. Assaulting a complex full of angry and drug-fueled gangers in an attempt to get back stolen xeno weaponry. While Christina looks more into House Brice and those around it, you begin gathering your team. Alpha is the obvious choice, and with Vincent's help you rather easily fill the roster. Now, after waiting for the Commander's men to scout out the place, you sit down and begin to iron out a plan.____________________________Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=A%20Fresh%20Start%20(Quest)Twitter: https://twitter.com/Elijah_QMCharacter Sheet(A Work In Progress):http://pastebin.com/85dR2GYK
>>33186276OP are you dead?
>>33186489probably writing up the first updateaussie anon checking in and wishing fellow anons good luck before sleeping, looking forward to catching up and hopefully catching the latter half of the thread
>>33186276You gather with Roxy and Vincent in the meeting room you found yourself in before hitting Dwimos. Pictures and notes lay scattered about the tables, detailing various points of entry and interest of the ganger complex."Not bad, for a bunch of ganger shits," Vincent notes. "Around thirty to forty guys inside, all lookin real mean. They keep a few people in sentry duty day and night, though half the time they're too drugged or drunk to notice anything. During the day they send out people, some armed with xeno tech, and at night they come back with whatever they managed to steal. Looks like they keep the weapons in an armory of sorts near the center of the complex. Way I see it, a night approach is going to get us the most weapons.""And the most gangers if things go south. Not that I'm saying we can't take them. Looks like just one main entrance here, with the big metal doors," Roxy adds, leaned back in her chair. "They look sturdy enough, but I'd like to see it take on half of what we're packing.""There's a sewer system running beneath it. We could come up from below if you can stomach the smell," Vincent grins. "Though, who knows what calls home down there.""It's gonna be hard to get the weapons if they're under a pile of rubble," You say, and Roxy gives a thoughtful shrug. "Though the unknown in the sewer isn't sounding particularly good either.""Well, the Lady put you in charge, so this is your show," Vincent says. "What's it gonna be, Mikkey? Knock down the front door, or take the quiet route?">Go in loud.>Take the quiet route.
>>33186626>Go in loud.Only one choice here
>>33186626>Go in loud.
>>33186626>Go in loud.There will be no door after we're done with it.
Fuck yeah, finally caught one of these in time to participate.>>33186626>take the quiet route,but have someone set some charges anyway, in case we need to cover our asses.
>>33186764>not looting the door and everything bolted to it and using it as a shield until we can haul it back to the ship and mount it on our wall as a trophy
>>33186798>why is there a door on your wall>I WON IT FAIR AND SQUARE
>>33186814>Hey Mikey, we're planning a raid, you wanna com->DIBS ON THE DOOR
>>33186832Can this be a thing now? Can we just collect doors?
>>33186832>But Mikey, there isn't any door on this planet>THEN FUCK IT. NO DOOR, NO POINT!
>>33186859I'd rather we only get one, our first virgin door, but it can be a joke from now on>So Mike, whats the plan?>Pretty simple guys, we go with Plan Door
>>33186788 here, amending to suggest trying to place charges so as to wrench the door free and use it as a projectile we can then keep, because >>33186814 needs to happen. Also because I wanna see a door fall on gangers when they try shooting at us.
>>33186798>>33186814>>33186832>>33186876Tfw mike is really an ork.
>>33186626"I've never really been one for discretion," You chuckle. "Why start now?"Vincent almost looks disappointed, but Roxy seems pleased. With that settled, you go about putting down the details.The main idea is something you all agree on: go in and get out, quick and dirty. The Antebellum has a number of vehicles, mainly consisting of Chimeras and Tauros'. The former was protection over speed, while the latter was the opposite. >Chimera.>Tauros.After getting inside the complex itself, it was a matter of half the team keeping the gangers at bay while the other half found and loaded up the weapons. The person leading each half would be responsible for keeping their people on target and moving.>Did you lead the protection or loading detail?>Does Vincent or Roxy lead the other detail?Finally, it comes to your attention that the sympathizers had, if you chose the direct approach, offered help. At the expense of a portion of the discount you were working for, they would lend you two specialists. Who and what they specialized in was a mystery, however, and you're not sure Delmar would appreciate having to pay more for whatever deal he'd brokered.>Take the help.>Decline it.
>>33187134ChimeraProtection with our door of protectionVincentDecline it
>>33187134Tauros, search and load detail with vincent, roxy man's the firepower, decline help. Operators gonna operate. Remember to get front door.
>>33187134>Chimera>Protection>Vincent>Decline it.With the power of door we will protect.
>>33187134>>Chimera.that door is gonna be applique armor until we get it back to the ship>Us leading protection>Vincent leading looting detail>Decline it.
>>33187134>>33187182>>33187221>>33187251Jumping on this bandwagon.
>>33187134After what feels like an eternity of squabbling over details you eventually finalize your plan. Chimeras for transport, with yourself leading the protection detail, choosing Vincent to lead the looting team, and declining the extra help. You note, with quiet interest, the mixture of relief and disappointment that passes over Roxy's face when you give command to Vincent."So that's that?" Vincent asks, and you nod. "Good. Though next time, Mikkey, try to keep things stable. You tell me you want quiet people, and now we're going in for an assault. Now I gotta tell my people the news, and they'll be all sorts of disappointed..."He's joking, for the most part, but you give a sheepish laugh all the same."Sorry," You say. "Will there be a problem?""Nah. Just a bit of extra time spent that I could have used drinking, smoking, or something else equally productive.""Are we finally done?" Roxy asks, standing from her chair and stretching. "No offense, but my ass fell asleep a while ago.">Say something else. (What?)>"Yeah. We're done."
>>33187441Roxy's with us on protection detail, right?
>>33187441>>"Yeah. We're done."take Roxy aside and ask her is she wants command of the protection detail, we can coordinate between the two and multitask
>>33187441>>"Yeah. We're done."
>>33187441>Yeah, we're done.Whoo hoo two weeks without internet and when I finally get it there is an Ex-Guardsmen the next day.Also happy 4th to all my fellow 'murricans
>>33187845Happy Explosives day to you too brother
>>33187441"Yeah. We're done," You say.Vincent takes his leave, but you stop Roxy before she can follow."Hey," You offer."Hey yourself," She returns, arching a brow. "What's up?""Do you want the protection detail?""Huh?" Her eyes go wide. "But you-""-can coordinate between you and Vincent. Multitask," You shrug.Like before, a hesitance returns, though this time not even trying to be hidden."I..." She looks to the floor.>"You can do it. I have faith in you, Rox.">"It's up to you.">"Look at me, Sergeant. Yes or no?"
>>33188027>"You can do it. I have faith in you, Rox."
>>33188027>It's up to you
>>33188027>"Look at me, Sergeant. Yes or no?"Then>"You can do it. I have faith in you, Rox."
>>33188027>>"You can do it. I have faith in you, Rox."and besides, we're gonna have our hands full with the door
>>33188027>>"You can do it. I have faith in you, Rox."You got this!
>>33188027"You can do it," You assure her with a smile. "I have faith in you, Rox."She looks back to you and returns your smile with her own; a shy but grateful thing. After a moment she sighs and punches you in the shoulder."Ow!" You chuckle, rubbing your arm. "What was that for?"She mutters something you don't catch, but moves on before you can tease her. "Alright, alright. If you're okay with it... I'll do it.""That'a girl," You say, sidestepping the next punch she throws.>"Are you doing anything today?">Move on to... (what?)>Time skip to operating operators.
>>33188393>>Move on to... (what?)SHOOT THE FAKE THINGS SO THAT WE MAY BE BETTER PREPARED TO SHOOT THE REAL THINGS
>>33188393>>"Are you doing anything today?"
>>33188393This >>33188483 but invite Rox
>>33188393Though Roxy seems intent on escaping your attention, you're not quite done yet."Are you doing anything today?" You ask, and a slight look of panic crosses her face."Well, that depends on why you ask," She says."I was thinking of shooting something," You shrug. "Was wondering if you might be interested."Your answer seems to surprise her, but she seems pleased by the prospect."Alright. Let's see if you can actually hit something this time," She teases.>Shooting range with Roxy.>Run The Gauntlet with your team.
>>33188785>Shooting range with Roxy.FEELING OF SHOOTING THE THINGS IS ONLY BEATEN BY DOOR OF PROTECTING
>>33188785>Shooting range with Roxy.
>>33188785Start shooting things with Rox, then Gauntlet once we're warmed up to get a feel for our team.Too bad we already timeskipped; I wanted to ask Melodi to dinner...
>>33188785You both make your way down to the training yard, where a number of similarly-minded armsmen are also practicing. You and the Sergeant take the same shooting lane as before."You go first," Roxy suggests, grinning. "Set the bar for us.""Won't be much of a contest if the winner goes first," You say."Uh huh," She snorts. "Step up and start missing, already."Moving into place with rifle in hand, you shoulder the weapon and nod to Roxy. She smacks the console, and a horn blares.>Roll for dakka.
Rolled 6>>33189062Dakka pls
>>33189119>>33189129>>33189157I am crying, emperor did not protect
Rolled 3>>33189147Er, been playing Dark Heresy. Switching to d20.>>33189119>>33189129You heretical bitches.
>>33189175Nice roll heretic
>>33189119>>33189129>>33189157>>33189175The Emps isn't with us today I guess.
Rolled 2>>33189197Never thought I'd be glad the first three averaged 6. Off to flagellate myself in Emprah's name...
>>33189062You try your best to keep track of your targets, but it seems one pops down only for two more to spring up. Try as you might, over half the targets manage to escape your wrath. Finally the horn blares again and the targets stop.When you turn to face Roxy, she looks more than a little amused."Go on," You sigh."Why go on?" She smirks. "I already called it."With that you hand over the rifle and swap places. She glances at you, playfulness gone, and nods.>Try and mess with her. (How?)>Be a good sport.
>>33189277>be a good boyMaybe emperor will help us on the next roll
>>33189277>Be a good sport.Only things I can think of involve Lewd
>>33189448>tfw the first thing I thought of was doing suggestive things with our tongue
>>33189510>>33189519MUH battle brothers
>>33189519I was thinking of pinching her ass while she tries takes aim... That just SCREAMS 'bad idea.'
>>33189448(You say that like it's a bad thing. And that I didn't want that.)>>33189277Though your pride has been wounded, you watch in silence as Roxy goes about taking down the various targets that pop up. She makes a good account of herself, getting about as many as she did last time.When it's all over she turns to you and beams."Nicely done, madam," You say, giving a dramatic bow. "Your prowess is unmatched by these feeble hands.""Har har," She answers. "Well, I've beaten you at shooting. Anything else?">Hand to hand.>Obstacle course.>Suggest the Gauntlet.>Other?
>>33189629>Other?Heheheheheh why we she ask this question?Get the bottles Mikkey "Adamantium Liver" Duncan returns
>>33189629>>Hand to handLEWD TIME
>>33189629>Hand to hand.
>>33189629>throw down dat gauntlet
>>33189629Suggest Gauntlet, warm up with obstacle course.No sense breaking our winning streak at melee if we don't have to.
>>33189750That's for just before the obstacle course.See who can get the farthest through without puking.
>>33189629Now if it was a certain Inquisitor I'd jump on that bait
>>33189835>Now if it was a certain Inquisitor I'd jump on that baitIndeed, Crissy a best.
>>33189832Maybe later. Sounds fun, but alcohol before a job? Let's not test Lady Massey's patience any more than we already have.
>>33189853Still holding out for Crissy + Melodi OT3, though stringing Roxy along is disturbingly fun.>amievil.jpeg
>>33190009>>33189853>tfw Chrissy and Roxy are tied in my mindBeing me is suffering
>>33190009>stringing along the roxyNo, roxy a best
>>33190039>Start worshipping Slanesh.>Grow a second dick.>Bone both of them at the same time, they have the time of their lives.>Inquisitor gonna inquire 'bout that second dick.>It was worth selling my souls to the chaos gods, I regret nothing.
>Suggest the Gauntlet.
>>33190039Please, this is the grim darkness of the far future. A second dick has to be cheaper than some of the weapons at our disposal.
Looks like another tie, so we must ask the dice gods to settle things once more. Odd is hand to hand, even is Gauntlet.
>>33190113>worshipping SlaaneshWhy resort to heresy when we can just let Melodi experiment on our nethers (after we apologize for putting our foot in our mouth with a nice dinner and/or seduce her)?
>>33190233Let's try that again...
>>33190260Son of a bitch. "roll+1d20," sans punctuation, in the email field. It worked before. I'm out; would some other enterprising anon care to roll this?
Rolled 5I'm hoping for the gauntlet. We should get the rest of the team too make sure they're warmed up last thing we need is someone not on top of their game when we roll in.
Rolled 5>>33190164Here, let me.
Rolled 6>>33190369>>33190363HA! Well there goes that idea.
>>33189629"Alright, Miss Confidence," You say. "How about we get physical?"She gives you a bleak look."Mama never taught you not to hit a girl?" She asks."You're a girl?" You ask, all innocence.This time you catch the punch thrown at you."Just for that I'm kicking your ass," She promises.You both move over to the same group of rings you had used when you faced Vincent. Luckily, you're a lot healthier than you had been then. You hop up, crane your neck to and fro, and turn--to see Roxy pulling off her shirt to reveal a pleasantly clinging black undershirt.Tossing the piece of clothing to the side, she turns to you and notices your staring."What?" She asks, brow furrowing.>"... sweet Emperor...">"I...uh...you...nothing.">"Nothing at all, Sergeant.">Roll it.
>>33190164>>33190363>>33190369Let's keep it a good, clean match. By which I mean don't grab her tits, because I fear the best and worst case scenarios for that equally.Not saying we should try to fight 'fair' like some noble fop, though. We're a Guardsman, and we play to win.
Rolled 3>>33190641>"Nothing at all, Sergeant."Keep it cool man
Rolled 16>"...sweet Emperor..."
>>33190641Running off of that "Your a girl" comment...> "Well, that's all the proof I need."
>>33190641>"I... uh... you... Nothing!"I love playing oblivious.
>>33190641>"Nothing at all, Sergeant."
>>33190896I'll assume that's a vote for "staring at glorious girl abs", then?
>>33190842roll+1d20One. Fucking. D20. Throw me a bone here, /tg/...
Rolled 8>>33190951Being this new
Rolled 18>>33190951Its dice man, put dice+1d[number here]
>>33190641>"... sweet Emperor..."
>>33190951Have you first deleted system 32?
>>33190832also I agree with this no bumbling idiot for us
>>33191097Put dice+1d20 in the email field not roll.
>>33191139...derp. Thanks.>>33190979A few months' lurking didn't teach me how to roll.
>>33191279Read the board stickies in the future, friend.
>>33190641"Well," You say. "That's all the proof I need."Roxy looks confused for several seconds before realization clicks. Then she turns an interesting shade of red and quickly crosses her arms over her chest."Pig!" She scowls."Are we going to throw around insults or fists?" You ask, and she hesitantly removes her arms.With that you both take a stance begin circling the ring. It's just a little bit difficult to concentrate, considering your new view, but you try your best.You both meet in a storm of fists and feet, having been more or less taught the same fighting style. Too bad for her, you've learned more than a few tricks in your career. Not the most honorable tricks, admittedly, but ones that get the job done.After several minutes of sparring you've both worked up a good sweat, but it feels good to finally have a serious fight after so long. And then, just like that, it's over. You sweep the Sergeant off her feet with a leg, and before she can recover you're on top of her and pinning her to the ground.You meet her glare with your typical grin, but after a moment her expression softens. The only sound is that of both of you trying to catch your breath.Then she shoves you off and you land next to her with a thud."I'm gonna feel this shit tomorrow," She grumbles as she leans up, then smiles at you. "Nice moves, though.">"Not a typical first date, I admit, but I'm not picky.">"Not bad yourself.">"I do what I can.">Other?
>>33191685>"Not a typical first date, I admit, but I'm not picky."Ahh fuck it the coin god says I have to
>>33191685>>"Not bad yourself."
Rolled 12>>33191685>>"Not a typical first date, I admit, but I'm not picky."
>>33191526I did. Just derped up the words part. (roll VS dice)>>33191685>Not so bad yourself
>Not bad yourself.I don't think its a good idea to get all touchy feely just before she dies in the fight tomorrow.
Rolled 9>>33191840Something tells me she has plot armor.>>"Not a typical first date, I admit, but I'm not picky."
>>33191840>plot armorShe isn't the Emperor
I think there are two things that are constant with this quest: irregular scheduling and ties.Odd is date, even is compliment.
Rolled 17>>33192063>not bad yourself
>>33192047>>33192063>>33192141What just happened?
>>33192205An anon voted late tiebreaking for date, another countered them, restoring the tie and breaking it again by rolling date. Capiche?
>>33192205(I HAVE NO IDEA!)>>33191685"Not a typical first date, I admit," You shrug. "But I'm not picky."Roxy looks to you again, glaring and blushing like before."Do you HAVE to say shit like that?" She huffs."Maybe not, but it's fun," You shrug, standing.You offer her a hand, and she begrudgingly accepts it. To your disappointment she goes to put her shirt back on, but then rethinks it."Great, now I need a shower," She grumbles, casting an accusatory glance at you. You smile. "This was fun, though. I guess.">Say/ask something before she leaves. (What?)>Bid her goodbye and... (What?)
>>33192392>Say/ask something before she leaves."We're 1 for 1 now don't be such a sore loser"
Rolled 6>>33192392>Bid her goodbye and... (What?)A first date needs a goodbye kiss.
>>33192457Changing this to>Bid her goodbye and... (What?)Go to the armory let's see if we can finally get some new gear
>>33192457>>33192653I like these two ideas
>>33192653Seconding. May as well check if they have anything for us, though 'finally' is a stretch - we're still only on mission 2.
>>33192457Seconding this.Roxy best girl, Melodi a shit.
>>33192392"We're one for one now," You chuckle. "Don't be such a sore loser.""We'll see," She says. "This just means we're gonna have to have a tie-breaker."With that you both part ways, and before long you're on your way to the armory. You arrive shortly after, and after a brief conversation with the still-yet-unseen Tony, you're let inside. The typical number of people are inside, with Cachino sitting next to a table laden with parts, reading from a dataslate. However, as you enter he firmly sets his eyes on you.>Greet the Sergeant!
>Changes my vote>tfw everybody supports my old and new vote>tfw I have no face>tfw I lied and do have a face I jist couldn't find it
>>33192875"Any chance of gubbinz, Sergeant?"
>>33192875>Whatever it is, I didn't do it."
>>33192912This! With a shit-eating grin that makes clear that we're joking.
>>33192912seconding this and the grin !
>>33192875"Whatever it is, I didn't do it," You grin, prepared to avoid incoming wrenches."Uh huh," Cachino grunts. "What do you want?""I was wondering if I could get a new piece of gear or two," You answer."What?" He snorts. "You survive one mission and you think that's enough?"You're not quite sure how to respond, but before you even can the older man sighs."I'm gonna regret this, but what were you even looking to get?" He asks.>Your answer?
>>33193114>"The more important question would be what do YOU have?"
>>33193114>Something that'll help to put a bunch of holes in a whole lot of gangers. Whaddya got in the heavy stuff ?
>>33193114Something that improves our aim because we're sitting at Emperor-damned Ork standards here.
>>33193150This. I want full auto to lay down suppressing fire on this mission.
>>33193362>>33193150I humbly request an Hellgun or similar effect weapon
>>33193391We have a Hellgun; maybe some mods? And lots of grenades! If we're storming the place, we may as well do it right. Suppression sounds like what we need.
>>33193114"The more important question would be what do YOU have?" You ask, trying to be friendly."More than you need to know about," Cachino answers."Alright... something that'll help put a bunch of holes in a whole lot of gangers," You venture. "Something heavy?""I won't have it blamed on ME when YOU blow up the Inquisitor. Put the hellgun on full auto. It'll put as many holes as you need."This obviously isn't going well. You decide to try something smaller."How about something to improve my aim?" You chuckle nervously. "Right now I'm sitting at Emperor-damned Ork standards here."That actually makes the man stop and consider. Though, after a while, you suspect he's doing it mainly to drag the whole thing out."I might have something," He says. "But it won't be free.""I have money-""-and so do I. What I want is something neither one of us can afford.""...what are we talking about here?""Captain Delmar keeps a serious stockpile of amasec and other things locked away in a storage room on the upper levels. Your level, to be specific. He won't get through half of it, at the rate he drinks. Don't think he'd mind if a bottle or two came up missing. You get me that, I'll get you your weapon mod."You're not sure if he's serious at first, but his expression is as bemused as always.>"Sure. Why not?">"I'll have to pass."
>>33193531>"What do I get for 3 bottles?"
>>33193531>"I'll have to pass."Sure, we could barter with the Captain but I'm not keen to go rummaging through his personal stash.
>>33193531>No promises, but that sounds fair.Delmar likes us, so we can try just asking him. Failing that, we'd better pass - Don't wanna get on the captain's bad side.
Rolled 90>>33193531>"Sure. Why not?"What could go wrong?
>>33193531>Sure. Why not ?We really need this boost to aim. But we can try to talk the good captain into releasing a bottle in our cautious hands rather than try to steal his alcohol.No one likes an amasec stealer.
>>33193625We can bribe the captain with musical performances. Possibly a recording or two...
>>33193765I'm slightly disappointed that we didn't grab a bass guitar
>>33193765Sure, that sounds like a fair and honest way to earn that bottle.
>>33193765I like this. We tentatively accept, let him know we won't cross the captain, and ask the captain. If he says no, we wheedle and offer a performance.
So when we get forced into playing a concert what song are we doing? Ain't that a kick in the head?
>>33194031That sounds good. Maybe 'House of the Risinf Sun' for a second?
>>33193531"Sure," You agree. "I'll see what I can do. No promises, though; I'd rather not be on the captain's bad side.""Fair enough," Cachino nods. "I'll be here. Now, get on. Before you end up breaking something."The Sergeant-at-Arms ushers you out of his armory, and with having actually gotten him to budge you don't cause any fuss over it. Once out, you decide to...>Look into getting those amasec bottles.>Go visit... (Who?)>Discard looting. Acquire operators. (Timeskip)
>>33194031If we have to do it in a band, "Maybe" by the Ink Spots.Or how about "The Great Rock Candy Mountans"?
>>33194139>Look into getting those amasec bottles.have not seen the good captain in a while anyways
>>33194139>Look into getting those amasec bottles.Practice the famous Cadian puppy dog eyes
>>33194139>Look into getting those amasec bottlesUpgrades might take time; best to get 'em started soon, and it'll be good to see Delmar again.>captcha: island disktie
>>33194139>Look into getting those amasec bottlesBetter grab our bass quickly
>>33194139You decide to track down the good Captain and see what he's up to. Making your way back to the upper levels, you ask around until you're pointed to his dining hall. Entering, however, you are greeted by an interesting sight.Ever dressed in gold, the Captain is pacing back and forth down the table. His arms are nearly constantly moving in dramatic movements while an obviously overtaxed crewman types away at a dataslate."-and once atop the beast, I held on for my life! With my rifle gone, I had only- Michael!" He notices you almost immediately, twirling around to fully face you. He jumps from the table with flourish, and the crewman gives you a grateful look as he puts down the dataslate and flexes his hands.>Greet the Captain!
>>33194517Please don't stop just for me keep going sounds like you just got too the interesting part
>>33194563Can't top that; seconding. Sucks to be the crewman, but it's bad manners to interrupt storytime.
>>33194517"Please, don't stop just for me," You tell him. "Keep going. Sounds like you just to to the interesting part."The crewman looks horrified at this suggestion, but Delmar waves it away."Bah," He sighs. "If I forced him to work much longer without pause, I might have to actually pay him for his efforts. Besides, I always have time for you, my friend. How can I be of service?">Your response?"
>>33194787>"I may have heard you have some top of the line amasec bottles lying around. What would a certain Inqusitors bodyguard have to do to acquire 2 or 3 bottles?"
>>33194787"I may have heard you have some top of the line amasec bottles lying around," You shrug casually. "What would a certain Inqusitors bodyguard have to do to acquire 2 or 3 bottles?"The Captain lets out an amused chuckle, and he seems to look you over. Then he grins and your gut warns of trouble."You once showed me your skill and love of the arts," He said. "A gift such as yours must be shown to the world, my friend. I need someone of your skill.""A private concert?" You ask, trying to mask your unease."Not quite," Delmar says. "There is to be a banquet at the end of this month. A number of fine men and women, much like myself. I promised to provide several things. Good food, drink... and music. You would be paid in more than amasec, of course. I am greedy, but not selfish."If there are two things you dislike in life, it's playing in front of others and nobility. Still, there's a chance to make get more than just a weapon upgrade...>"I... guess.">"Apologies, Captain, but I can't."
>>33195451>Throw in a eagle and you have a dealhue I finally get my eagle
>>33195451>I... guess.Can't pass up mystery prizes, good standing with the Rogue Trader, and more immediate dakka.
>"I... guess."munitions are good too have besides need too do something too pass the time
>>33195451"I...guess," You answer, not exactly thrilled."That's the spirit!" Delmar grins, slapping your arm. "Come, come, I will show you my personal stock."Without any room for argument the Captain leads you through a servants entrance, past a number of surprised cooks and servants. They scramble to make room for the two of you, but the Captain pays them little mind."From almost every planet I make port, I always acquire a few crates of the local flavors. Some a exquisite, while others... less so," He explains.Eventually you are lead to an oddly fortified door, and after Delmar taps a code into a nearby console it swings open. Inside, what looks like an endless row of amasec bottles and other alcoholic drinks line the walls and make isles.The Captain watches your expression with glee, obviously pleased by it. Even you have to admit it's an impressive sight."Take as much as you want, but... temperance, my friend," He suggests.>Take enough for Cachino.>Take enough for Cachino... and yourself.
>>33195995>Take 7 bottles
Rolled 20>>33195995>>Take enough for Cachino.We can share a sample with him on delivery.
>>33195995>Take enough for Cachino... and yourself.
>>33195995Take enough for Cachino and ourself, possibly to sell at a later date. If we are going to sell our pride it may as well be for a high price.
>>33195995>Take enough for Cachino... And yourself.>>33196018Seven sounds good; enough to give Cachino three, have two on reserve for dinners, and two on reserve for trades/ bribes/ etc.>>33196047We can get thrones lots of ways; the booze the good captain has in his stash is likely priceless.
>>33195995You begin to look through the stock before you with a critical eye. Some you've never heard of, while others are ones you didn't think you'd ever see with your own eyes. Remembering Delmar's words, on more than one occasion to force yourself to put back several. In the end you take four bottles. Two for Cachino, two for yourself.When you return, the Captain gives an approving nod."Enjoy yourself, my friend," He grins. "Just not too much.""Always do, Captain," You answer.You stop by your quarters long enough to put away your own collection before moving on to the armory. There, Cachino hasn't budged from his seat. However, something resembling a smile appears on his face when he sees the bottles."Well I'll be damned," He says. "How'd you manage that?">"Asking nicely.">"If they find the bodies, we never talked.">"I have my ways.">Other?
Rolled 58>>33196223>>"Asking nicely."
>>33196223>"If they find the bodies, we never talked. Now give me things to make more bodies"
>>33196223I have my ways. Most of which involves asking nicely
>>33196223"If they find the bodies, we never talked."
>>33196223I'm torn between "Asking nicely" and "If they find the bodies, we never talked," so coinflipping my vote: odd is #2, even #1. Will restate result.
Rolled 2>>33196490Of course, rolling only works if I actually roll...
>>33196515>>33196490So that's>"Asking nicely."for my vote. Sorry for clogging up the thread.
>"If they find the bodies, we never talked."and if he gives us that look>"Asking nicely."
Rolled 15>>33196223>"Eh not much, just slept with the Captain is all."
>>33196223"If they find the bodies, we never talked," You tell him quietly. His expression is less than happy, so you grin. "Asking nicely. So, we're done?""Wasn't expecting you to actually get it done so soon..." Cachino mutters. "Bring it down and I'll install it myself."It's at this point you remember that you've acquired a grenade launcher without the Sergeant-at-Arms knowing. Whoops...>"I can do it myself.">Explain what Melodi did for you and hand it over.
Rolled 10>>33196963>Explain what Melodi did for you and hand it over.What are soldiers good at? Breaking shit. What are they not good at? Complicated shit.
>>33196963>>Explain what Melodi did for you and hand it over.
>>33196963>Explain what Melodi did for you and hand it over.
>>33196963You explain your newest addition to your firearm, stressing that Melodi had overseen the whole thing. Knowing this, most of Cachino's ire remains negated. Most of it, at least.He takes the weapon and says that it will be ready by tomorrow morning. Maybe.With that done you grab a quick meal before retiring for the evening. A bit of time reading and a glass of your newest vintage is a nice way to unwind, and with that you drift to sleep.Sadly, despite your best efforts, you dream.>Roll for FUN.
Rolled 25>>33197179What dice? All dice? All Dice.
Rolled 10>>33197179It's d20 right?Nat 1, motherfucker.
>>33196963>explain that we got a Techpriest to do for us and hand it overWe haven't let others in on the fall with us before, no reason to start now.
>>33197179It's the same as always. The cold, dark, metal halls of a ship. No light but the one sprouting from your lasgun. Dressed in your guardsman flak armor.You don't want to admit it, but your hands are shaking. If you're honest, your entire body is shaking. You don't want to go through this. Not again. You creep down the hall seemingly without end, waiting for-You hear it, and your heart stops.At first faint, almost soft, but it quickly grows louder. Metal screaming against metal, twisting, slamming. Coming from behind you. Chasing after you.But this time, ahead, a light comes into view. Faint and distant, but there.>Run.>Stand your ground.>Roll a 1d20
Rolled 13>>33197375Guardsmen die standing
Rolled 8>>33197375>Stand your ground.to the death
Rolled 20>>33197375>Stand your groundTHE EMPEROR PROTECTS, MOTHERFUCKER! SUCK ON MY NAT 20
Rolled 1>>33197433I don't what to believe anymore.
>>33197433Well shit. I was gonna advocate running until we found a better place to stand our ground, but I can't argue with that.>mfw I wanted to lose badly, since it's just a dream
>>33197433>>33197462What does it mean?!
Rolled 7>>33197805It means that>>33197462is a heretic in need of purging
>>33197805the dice gods, they toy with us
>>33197805Well >>33197462 is a Chaosfag who is utterly shocked and in awe of the Emperor's power and love for Humanity and how the human was able to pull such a feat off with the Emperor's help
>>33197375The light calls, but you turn and plant your feet firmly to the floor. Not tonight."Come on, you bastard!" You call. "Come and fucking get me!"Then, just like that, the noise stops.In the darkness ahead comes an animalistic growl, and a pair of glowing red eyes appear. Without another thought you raise your lasgun and fire. The shots land squarely, but the thing doesn't even seem to notice. Clad in armor black as night, head being that of a skull, it never breaks its stride."Murderer," it whispers, swinging a gauntleted fist that narrowly misses your head. Instead it slams into the wall, and you roll away to fire into the things back."Butcher," it continues in it's infuriatingly soft tone, turning and knocking the weapon from your hand. You grab your combat knife and pull it free."Shut up!" You snarl. "Shut the fuck up!"You duck beneath another swing and sink the blade deep into the things chest, but when you pull it free only ash pours free from the gap. You stare in horror. Too long.It grabs you by the neck and slams you against the wall, pinning you there and causing you to cry out in pain. Closing the distance, the skull brings itself inches from your face."COWARD!" it screams.>Roll san check.
Rolled 14>>33197924"I've fucked uglier fat chicks than you, motherfucker. You don't scare a fucking servo skull."
Rolled 20>>33197924Sanity is over-rate. Insanity if more fun.
Rolled 5>>33197924>silent glare
>>33197964I TOLD YOU THE EMPEROR PROTECTS MOTHERFUCKERS! SEE?SUCK IT CHAOSOh and stop rolling.
Rolled 4>>33197964You have got to be fucking shitting me this happens all the fucking time I this quest like fuck man give us a break
Rolled 17no coward stops to fight their fears
>>33198009What can ya do? Mike Duncan is a lucky AND skilled bastard.
>>33197964(Not sure if I actually said anything, but if it's alright with you anons I thought I'd make a Crit Rule. Good or bad, even if it's not part of the three it counts. Objections?)>>33197924You rear your head back and slam it against the skull with all the force you can muster. The thing's grip on you loosens, and you shove it off of you."I HAVE FACED TYRANID HORDES WITHOUT FALTER," You shout, hitting the thing and forcing it farther back."I HAVE SEEN WORLDS BURN AND DIE!"Another hit and a fragment of the skull goes flying."I DID AS I WAS ORDERED! I KILLED WHO I WAS TOLD TO KILL!"One last hit sends the thing falling backwards to the floor. For some reason your eyes begin to burn and your vision blurs, but you fall on the thing and keep hitting it."I AM A CADIAN! AND I AM NO COWARD!"Piece by piece the skull breaks away to reveal flesh and bone behind it. Before long blood stains your hands and face, but your blows don't stop. Can't stop. It only ends when you hear something. A noise.A gasp, quiet and alarmed.You look up to see a woman standing in the hall, the light suddenly much closer and near blinding. Vision still blurred, you can only make out two things:First; her dark hair, reaching down to her shoulders.Second; the pure, utter look of horror and fear on her face as she looks at you.And then, as quickly as it began, you wake.____________________________Think I'll end things here. Hope you guys had fun.As usual, the time for questions/suggestions/whatever is now.
Rolled 17>>33198374How about within first five? You know, to prevent tomfoolery and you having to rewrite stuff.
>>33198404I vote this
>>33198374Thanks for running. Great thread for freedom day.
>>33198404For just crits, or in general? I'm not egotistical enough to think I can regularly have at least five people voting in a thread at a time. Yet, at least.
>>33198374>>33198404Im willimg to give this a try next thread
Rolled 1>>33198508Err, not asking for you to expand dice averages to include first five rolls. Just for crits would be cool.
Rolled 18>>33198521Oh Jesus Christ. 2 1's and a Nat 20. What a day. The Spirit of 'Murica posses my dice and urges them to greater heights of insanity.
>>33198521Sounds good, and your roll gives me all sorts of confidence in the coming threads.
>>33198374I agree with >>33198404 as well.It was good fun as always. I missed most of it because of the festivities today, but it was still a good read. Happy rest of Independence Day to all the 'murricans in the mid-west and on the west coast.
>>33198572I'll say now that /tg/ dice have a somewhat high chance of crit'ing, they like to swing wildly, so do keep that in mind when writing the outcome of a crit, they are not a very small percentage chance.I'd hate to see a random crit-fail kill the quest
>>33198521I second that motion: average of first 3, overruled by any combination of crits in the 1st 5, because mixing ones and twenties is fun.>>33198374Holy shit we're a badass... I kinda wanted us to just plain lose, though; this dreamend was depressing. Still, Dunkin and >>33197433these >>33197964bastards >>33197991weren't taking anything lying down!
>>33198603I salute ya, fellow Amerifag. Go blow something up; I'm about to.Thanks for a great quest, Elijah. Can't think of a better way to celebrate Independence Day short of bitches'n barbecue on a tank.
Rolled 19>>33198692I wasn't taking no shit from Chaos. The Emperor protects us all for those that believe in him and humanity.
>>33198374Next time when?
Well this was some sweet shit. Sorry I missed out, hope to catch you guys next time.
