You see Hendrick walk in, bumping into Amelia. He mumbles an apology and then looks up at you."I... I think I know what happened to Sarge...">What?>No, I don't want to know.
>>33636217>>What?we honor his memory
>>33636259>>33636472>>33636482"I think he's... I think he was captured by the traitors..."You see Hendrick look up at you and smile faintly."At least he's still alive... But I don't know what the traitors will do to him.">He's Sarge, he'll live through whatever they will throw at them.>We have to assume that he's dead.
>>33636632>we have to assume the worstand death is far from that
>>33636650>>We have to assume that he's dead.this
>>33636632>>We have to assume that he's dead.
>>33636632>We have to assume he's deadThey really have no reason to let him live other than for testing new desieses or something. He would be killed to harvest his gene seed at best.
>>33636650>>33636691>>33636824"I... I don't want to acknowledge that but... I don't want to believe that he's... Dead."Hendrick sighs and closes his eyes."Alright..."Hendrick at you and smiles."Well, I guess we're the only two original members from our squad left alive. I guess that counts as something then."---After taking care of some supplies, you gather the group up again. Asalia was told to stay behind and Emily argued that she should still come with you. Chaplain Davis told you that he would stay behind to help with Balzer and Marshton recover what they new and Tarick was told to stay behind to help the Imperial Guard and the sisters. All that is left is Amelia, Emily, Hendrick, Tom, and Ser. You walk down to the entrance to the lower levels as you are guided by a few mutants and a guardsman."Yeah, when I was told that there was going to be a surprise attack from the lower levels, our highest ranking officer told me to find a way down to this lower level. We found out the hard way that a large amount of battle servitors was found down below by some unfortunate deaths. Careful down there, alright?">Thank you guardsman.>What else do you know about the lower levels?
>>33637072>>What else do you know about the lower levels?
>>33637072>What else do you know about the lower levels?
>>33637072>>Thank you guardsman.>>What else do you know about the lower levels?
>>33637122>>33637129>>33637174"Oh yeah, a lot of the mutants believe that this is where their saint died. Somewhere down there is a large shrine and a 'forbidden shrine' down there. The large shrine is where the marine died and the 'forbidden' shrine is where they send their greatest champions to die when they reach an old age."Ser look up at you and whimpers."Are... Are we heading there?">Not yet, I want to see this other shrine.>Yeah, we're heading there right now.
>>33637264>>Not yet, I want to see this other shrine.
>>33637317>>33637336>>33637449Ser smiles slightly and walks in front of you as he begins to lead the way.---As you descend into the lower levels, you notice that it is getting very dark. You feel a hand on your shoulder as Tom pulls you back."Here, this will help with the darkness."Tom hands you a flashlight and he pulls out a large lantern from his satchel and hooks it onto his servo arm. He look around and then nods."Alright, I can take point if you want me to.">I'll take point.>You take point.>Hendrick can take point.>Let Ser lead on.>Amelia can use her helmet to see in the dark.>Let Emily lead.
>>33637646>I'll take point
>>33637646>Let Ser lead on.
>>33637646>>Let Ser lead on.
>>33637646>>I'll take point.bravery shall define us
>>33637646>>I'll take point.We got this.
>>33637681>>33637713>>33637736"Alright, be careful then."You draw your sniper rifle and start to lead on...>1D10>1 Something very bad.>2-5 Something bad.>6-9 Nothing of Note.>10 Something good.
Rolled 1>>3363780510 get
>>33637835As you walk through the old ruins of the lower levels, you notice something inside of one of the buildings and you see something glimmer in some rubble...You look in and find a small bolt pistol. It looks pretty beat up, but it doesn't look too bad. It also looks like it's working. Next to the pistol, you find five bolt shells scattered around in a box.You move forward a little bit more and you begin to hear some gears from up ahead.>Call for the group to halt.>Keep going... (1D10)>1 Something very bad.>2-5 Something bad.>6-9 Nothing of Note.>10 Something good.
Rolled 10>>33637936>Keep going... (1D10)

Rolled 5>>33637936>Keep going... (1D10)
Rolled 4>>33637936>>Keep going... (1D10)O yeah we kicking ass and for the emperor to.
>>33637952You keep the group going and you find that there is a very big machine in the middle of the street. You look around with your flashlight and see that there are some skeletons and a very large piece of an autocannon. You look back at Tom as he examines the machine."This... This is an old machine. Look at the rust forming on the gear and inside the machine... Yeah, this machine has a very docile machine spirit. It's some kind of manufacturing device, but I don't know what it was supposed to make."He looks to you."If you don't mind, I'd like to examine this for a while.">No, mark it's location on a map and let's get going.>Sure, go ahead.
>>33638091>>Sure, go ahead.
>>33638091>Sure, go ahead.Can we fix it?
>>33638091>Sure, go ahead.show us your miracles...
Rolled 3>>33638091>Sure, go ahead.Time to put some of that Orky training and believe it can work!
>>33638122>>33638124>>33638128>>33638162>>33638165You watch Tom put down his lantern down next to him and watch him go to work.---After two hours of working, you hear the machine shut down and then start up again."There we go..."The machine starts to work again and you see some sort of green block being pushed out of it."It makes healing balm of some sort.">Let's take some then.>Let's leave it be.
>>33638260Call Tom to thank and pray to its machine spirit, then see if we can take some safetly
>>33638260>>Let's take some then.Sweet, make sure it works before we take a lot
>>33638260>Let's take some then
>>33638260>Let's take some then.
>>33638260>Let's take some then.autcannon equipped medgel factory, bitchin
>>33638290>>33638302>>33638314>>33638334You give everyone a block of healing gel. Emily looks at the gel and then looks at you with a puzzled look."Uh... I don't know about this..."Amelia simply looks at it and puts it in her pack."Well... Might as well.">Ask Tom about the Autocannon.>Keep moving.
>>33638378>Ask Tom about the Autocannon.
>>33638378>>Ask Tom about the Autocannon.archeotech plox
>>33638378>>Ask Tom about the Autocannon.
>>33638406>>33638450>>33638511"Well... I guess I can try to fix it if I get some more time on my hands... Want me to do that?">Yes.>Forget about it.>Let's take it with us.
>>33638537>>Let's take it with us.name it Mittens the heretic reaper
>>33638537>>Let's take it with us.If he can work while he walks, otherwise fix it now
>>33638563>second both things
>>33638537>Let's take it with us.
>>33638563>>33638595>>33638635He picks up the last parts of the autocannon and nods.After an hour of walking, you finally get to a very large opening and you see that there is a very large tower in the middle of the artificial valley. Ser begins to run around you and begins to laugh."It iiiis the shriiine...Iiit is here!">Alright, take us down there.>Do we need to know anything before going down there?
>>33638798>>Do we need to know anything before going down there?
>>33638798>Do we need to know anything before going down there?safety first
>>33638798>Do we need to know anything before going down there?
>>33638819>>33638821"The shriiine is guarded by huuuundreds of my kiiiin... The Hoooly Clan guuuuards this plaaace...">Do they like your clan?>Let's keep going then.
>>33638982>Do they like your clan?
>>33638982>>Do they like your clan?Seems like the smartest answer
>>33638996>>33639005>>33639014Ser nods and then smiles."Hoooly Claaan loves aaalll my kiiin... "Unity and Brooootherhooood will briiiing us clooooser to Hiiim..." That is whaaat they taaaaught us. It iiiisss sad thaaat we aaaare stiiiill in clans.">(Talk and walk) Why are you in clans?>Walk down to the shrine.
>>33639078>>(Talk and walk) Why are you in clans?
>>33639078>Walk down to the shrine
>>33639078>(Talk and walk) Why are you in clans?
>>33639118>>33639124"Wheeen the maaarine died, it is saaaid that one daaay he would taaake a group of my kiiin to see Him... The chieftains waaanted to be brought toooo see Hiim... Now, the clans aaare threatening waaar..."Ser looks sad now."I do nooot like fighting... Not iiif weee can speak toooo each ooother...">That is the makings of a leader, Ser.>Sometimes fighting is necessary.>Stay silent.
>>33639329>>Sometimes fighting is necessary.
>>33639329>That is the makings of a leader.
>>33639329>Sometimes fighting is necessary.
>>33639329>That is the makings of a leader, Ser.Surely we know that it is best to win battles before they occur
>>33639329>>That is the makings of a leader, Ser.
>>33639549>>33639479>>33639360Ser smiles a little bit before quickening his pace. As you walk down to the tower, you see a lot of mutants in white robes walking around with spears and autopistols. They chitter and begin to pray as you pass. A large door leads into the tower as a group of mutants open it up and bows as you enter the tower. You look down at Ser as he bows. You look up to see a large mutant, something akin to an ogryn and a mutant walking out of the tower."I Welcome you to owr howy towar. How can I hewp you?">I head that there was a relic in here. May I see it?>Just looking around.
>>33639692>>I head that there was a relic in here. May I see it?
>>33639692>I head that there was a relic in here. May I see it?
>>33639692>>I head that there was a relic in here. May I see it?weapon please.
>>33639715>>33639740>>33639786The mutant stomps the ground and laughs. You look back to see Hendrick scratching his head and looking at you."Hwee do not awow anywone to see the howy wewic.">I am one of the marines you worship so much. (1D10, Negotiation.)>Oh, then I suppose I'll just have to force my way in. (1D10, Intimidation.)

Rolled 8>>33639837>>I am one of the marines you worship so much. (1D10, Negotiation.)I believe we have a +1 for talks.
>>33639877Ah yes, forgot about that.Good thing I have a character Doc shows it off.In all seriousness, I'm really glad that people have been looking back at the character doc.>>33639874You see the mutant back up a bit and try to bow before falling over. Some of the mutants try to help him up, but he just yells at them to get off."I am so sowy, I did not know you were His Angew of Death. If you would fowow me..."You begin to follow the mutant as you hear Amelia mumble to Emily about the mutant's voice. Emily giggles and then stops, seeing that the mutants are now eyeing her.---After another ten minutes of walking down some very dark stairs. You enter a large hallways that is very dark except for the torches placed along the walls. You begin to walk down the hallway as you see some very large mutants that seem to be very capable of fighting standing guard. As you get closer, you seem to hear Ser chittering and bowing down. Then, you see Amelia and Emily do the same thing. Hendrick looks back at them and shrugs, but both of you feel Tom grab your carapace armor and pull you back."Show some respect... That's the corpse of a chaplain..."You look at the end of the hall to see the familiar black and white armor of a chaplain sitting on a throne. He hold not only the symbol of the Inquisition on his chest plate, but also has a book chained to his armor. You look closer and see that it has something scribbled on its cover.>May I get closer then?>If this is so holy, we shouldn't be down here.
>>33640062>May I get closer then?might as well push our luck.. it should be fine as long as we don't make a mess
>>33640062>May I get closer then?It's time for the magic =I=!
>>33640062>>May I get closer then?pray earnestly while doing so, and ask for forgiveness for the intrusion
>>33640104>>33640105>>33640139As you walk closer, you hear Ser chittering to himself and then he gasps. You hear him chitter to the big mutant as both of them walk off into another room. As you get closer, you see that book as some very familiar symbols, most importantly the symbol of the Astartes... And another symbol that you can't make out. On the chaplain's body is a long chain that leads to an ornate crozius. It is held in his right hand and it looks really tight.>Read the book.>Try to pry the crozius out of the chaplain's hand.
>>33640279>Read the book.Last thing we need is to piss off the natives.
>>33640279>Read the book.carefully
>>33640279>>Read the book.
>>33640311>>33640338>>33640341You pick up the book and open it to the first page. On that page is the Chaplain's name, Lucius Alvery, and what company he belonged to, the second. You turn to the second page..."The date escapes me, but I know it has been too long since I have returned to my chapter. I wander this deserted city, hoping that I would receive a good death after I had abandoned my comrades to protect a holy relic. I try to rile the mutants up into a frenzy, hoping to anger them enough to kill me, but each one simply whimpers and runs away. These creatures are pathetic, but something about them makes me pity them. Is it their frail bodies? Their eyeless faces? It is strange, but I feel pity for them.">Keep reading.>Put the book down.
>>33640502>Keep reading. your name's gone, btw
>>33640514>>33640539>>33640555>>33640566You flip the page and you feel a sting of sadness in your heart as you read the next page."As I sit here, I remember my past sins. The necessary sins that had made me who I am today. There was one memory that I had tried to suppress, but now comes up while I sleep. It was during a raid upon a suspected city block in a city. There was a young boy being lead around by his sister. Once she was seen by the ministorum priest, he ordered his followers to apprehend her for suspicion on heresy. She looked down at the small child and knelt down. I could only clench my fists in rage as the child began to cry, seeing his sister being taken from him. That night, I found that she had been taken by the sisters to join a far off order to repent for her imaginary sins. I do not know if that child had found his way home or even if he had a home anymore. I sometimes regret the things I do in His name, but I never doubt His word. I simply doubt the methods we use."You begin to have flashbacks of someone crying and fire rising into the sky.>Keep reading.>Put the book down.
>>33640838Go home reading rainbow
>>33640744>Keep readingThis is why I hate this shitty fucking Imperium. Fuck this shit, human petty scum, Let the galaxy burn.
>>33640937dont you have a world to be eternally stalemated on Abaddon?
>>33640937xenos plz go
>>33640785>>33640790>>33640809>>33640838You turn the page again and see that the writing has become shorter and it seems that he is dying, by the looks of his writing."It has been almost one hundred years since I was stranded here, forgotten by my brother, forgotten by him, or so I thought. Over the years, I have found that these mutants are willing to learn His word and become something glorious. They know of their impurity and yet they are fine as long as they serve Him. I have grown fond of these mutants and this fondness will soon kill me. Their civilization has been found out by what seems to be a large regiment of Imperial Soldiers. I fought them off as best I could before they ran from battle, but they will be back. I have told the mutants to hide from sight and they will be fine, for I know that they will become key in bringing another world into the fold of the Emperor. I have told them many things about Him and how he would reward them if they formed unity among themselves, to know brotherhood as I had known my own brothers. I am Chaplain Lucius Alvery and I will defend these innocent people till my final breath."You look through the other pages, but you don't see anymore writing. You close the book.>Try to grab the Crozius.>Walk away from the corpse.
>>33640962I am just a humble, permanently but moderately rustled World Eater. But yes, Abbadon can't get shit done.
>>33640999>>Walk away from the corpse.We aught not defile his resting placealso I'm fairly sure we were the crying little kid, probably, maybe
>>33640999>Salute the corpse, then leave.
>>33640999>Get dat CroziusOffer a prayer, aloud.A life given in service of the Emperor is not a wasted life, or however that goes.
>>33640999>Walk away from the corpse.this corzius shall be used again, but not by us.
>>33641027>>Walk away from the corpse.this
>>33640999>Walk awayLet's not desecrate a fellow brother.
>>33640999>>Walk away from the corpse.good man.
>>33641024>>33641027>>33641051>>33641059>>33641067You give a prayer to the corpse as you walk away. You then see Ser and the mutant from before walking back."We have something to show you. Pwease come with us.">Fine.>I'd rather not stay here.
>>33641126Nob in deed.
>>33641142>>33641149>>33641181>>33641184You nod and follow the both of them to another room. This room is very big and is actually being looked after by a few servitors, all of which are writing something on paper."I had my dowts, but I thin that you awe the won who is to bwing us into his bossum."Hendrick raises an eyebrow and looks at you."It is said that befowe The Gweat One died, he spoke of a time in which mutant kind would be cawed upon to fight fow Him. A Gweat Champion would awise to fwight The Gweat Enemy. He would come down to owr gweat city and fight the Etewnal Wone. It would be an epic struggle, but one that the champion would ultimatewy twiumph. I bewieve that you are him!"The mutant bows very low and then falls over. You hear Emily hide a small sniker as Amelia looks over at you."Wait, you're saying that Nameless is your champion?">I really doubt that.>What else does it say?
>>33641048>>33641051>>33641059>>33641067>/tg/ turning down loot and respecting the deadI am proud, brothers.
>>33641313>what else does it say?Who are we to doubt the words of the faithful?
>>33641313>What else does it say?
>>33641313>>I really doubt that.but allright
>>33641313>>What else does it say?Nod
>>33641335>>33641348>>33641357>>33641384"It says that a catacwismic battwe would unfowd and that the champion must make a choice. It does not say what that choice is, but the champion will be forever changed by it."Ser chitters a little bit and then walks over to you. He stands next to you and grabs your shirt sleeve."Let usss go, Silent Ooone...">Ser?>Yeah, let's get out of here. Thank you for allowing us to look upon the corpse.
>>33641500>>Ser?we will have to lose a friend ... or something. If that's the case I vote for the third option and fire a cannon at it or something.
>>33641526>>33641535>>33641545"It... Isss nothing..."Ser keeps on walking out of the room, his stance sad but still holding himself up proudly.>Follow Ser out.>(To the Mutant) Will you help me fight the war then?
>>33641632>>Follow Ser out.we will probably have to pass the test first any ways.
>>33641632>>(To the Mutant) Will you help me fight the war then?
>>33641632>(To the Mutant) Will you help me fight the war then?tell him that if he wants to fight, he should brandish the corzius, as it is here to protect his kin
>>33641632>Follow Ser out.We'll know more about the mutants and our chances at victory after the challenge.
>>33641673>>33641815Taking this to break the tie.You walk out with Ser. Ser is still sad for some reason and he keeps walking.>Ser, what is it?>Stay silent and follow Ser out.
>>33641962>>Ser, what is it?
>>33641962What is it?
>>33641962>Ser, what is it?
>>33641962>>Ser, what is it?Come on homie lets talk.
>>33641971>>33641996>>33642038Ser lets out a soft moan as he sits down."It is true... You muuust make a choooice... But thaaat choice is weeeell known in my claaaan...

>>33642151"Don't worry, Ser. I will make the right choice."
>>33642196>>33642198>>33642258He looks away from you and walks up the stairs."It must happen..."THANKS FOR PARTICIPATING IN THE QUEST TONIGHT!REMEMBER TO FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER TO STAY UP TO DATE ON CANCELLATIONS OR SCHEDULE CHANGES ABOUT THIS THREAD.HAVE A GOOD NIGHT /TG/!
