The Obscenity Engine thus far has proven to be both more painful and more bountiful than your initial hopes. Between the crazy AI, servitors wielding fightercraft-appropriate chainguns, and tanks with flamethrowers, you’ve had a good time. You’re a little worse for the wear but the wounds at least remind you you’re alive. Something that could change rather quickly.Ignitrix’s work on the removal of the AI has finally hit a roadblock. She only has time to re-enable one of two precious systems (along with Navigation) before the Engine and the Space Hulk surrounding it plunge into a maw of the abyss. One option leaves you weaponless but without the need to worry about the Rak’gol swarm outside getting aboard. The other option will give you fire control but also means you will have to spend a good deal of time purging the xenos from your new flagship. Given that you’re going to have to fend off Blood Raven Battle Barges and Rak’gol Marauders the moment the Engine exits the Hulk, you’re choosing the latter.Besides, you can slay pests like the Rak’gol all day. Right? It’s not like they have sorcerers or anything among their ranks...Welcome to Khornette Quest.

Like all things 40k, the gauntlet runs from “worshipping the printed word” to “over the top silliness.” Most of the time it’s somewhere in between. You’ve been warned in advance.All rolls go against a specified characteristic in the style of Black Crusade. You’ll want to roll under the characteristic value in order to pass the check. The more degrees of success (every multiple of 10 counts as 1), the more awesome of a result. A 1 is a guaranteed success, and a 100 is a guaranteed failure. Best of three rolls when it’s called for, with a 1 or a 100 instantly taking precedence. If multiple characteristics are being rolled for, each 1d100 counts for its respective test. Any rolls prior to the call for one and those not linking said post will be ignored.You may burn (i.e. gone forever) 10 infamy to completely reroll a check (i.e. three new 1d100). If you have above 10 infamy, you are allowed a single additional 1d100 roll for any check during a session. If you have any questions/etc, now’s the time. I’ll push the first update in about 10 minutes. Excessive meta/whining/waifu’ing/etc goes to QTG. Blatant Samefaggotry will be ignored.You may find this 4chanX filter list useful: http://pastebin.com/QxMu8Rrr Today's drinking game: One sip for each time Ignitrix does something headpat worthy, one shot for each time I drop the trip.

>>35628928> It’s not like they have sorcerers or anything among their ranks...They... don't, right?
>>35629062This is a small taste of what's ahead of us.And it's why we should be glad we're daemons and have so many chances to reroll/mod our rolls.
You pinch the bridge of your nose, right between your eyes. Keeping your voice calm, you ask, “How long do we have until the Rak’gol start getting inside? Can we funnel them towards one or two areas in particular?”Ignitrix doesn’t respond at first. She’s so engrossed in trying to power through the last bit of encryption and code surrounding the AI that you have to repeat the question. “Yes. Here. Need to focus,” she says in quick bursts. To your right, a few meters from the AI’s monolith, a holographic representation of the ship materializes mid-air. It’s surrounded by so many little red dots (which you assume represent the Rak’gol) that the Engine might as well have a second hull made of them. Acerea walks over from the other side of the room to stare at the map with you. “Hmmm…” she muses, walking around the projection while taping it in several places. Each tap causes another hologram to form nearby, one of a zoomed in floorplan of whichever section of the ship she taps. Given that the Plaguebearer is the next best thing after the Tzeentchean when it comes to Xenos-related knowledge, you let her ponder. For the moment anyways. You had to make a couple of vox calls anyways....Or you would if you hadn’t crushed your microbead after the argument with the Blood Ravens. “Did either of you bring a spare bead?” you ask slightly sheepishly. “Here Dear,” responds Acerea, tossing you her own. “I think I’m onto something here with these ‘railguns’ on the bow. Just give me a few minutes.”“Sure,” you reply as you catch the microbead midair and activate it. You had at least two major calls to make. The question was which would be first.>  Deal with the Zoanthrope and its kin>  Inform the Raptor and the Inferno what’s about to happen>  Attempt to get the Blood Ravens to start attacking the Rak’gol (Fel)>  Write in

Zoanthrope it is. Writing...While that happens, here's the latest two concepts about her to speculate/debate over.
>>35629353Right one from waist up, but traditional lower body/legs like the top left.
>>35629353I like a mixture of the humanoid and 'bound' versions, maybe the bound version with noodly arms?
>>35629127Ah, too late.Oh well, I'll vote anyway - Zoanthrope'd have won in any case.>3Promote blood for the blood god as a Mehreen pasttime, and buy time for the other calls. Rude to keep them waiting, but we ARE Cinder.
>>35629353Hmm...Left one seems it'd be more fun to lewd, if it ever goes that way, but I think I'll still say the Right one.
>>35629353Top left, with pic related forelimbs tacked on
>>35629510Warpdamnit. Excuse me, I have to go claim some skulls to atone for that fuckup.
>>35629532These legs could work too. I basically just want top left with a single pair of bug legs at her 'shoulders.' She can grow scything talons later, as we preach the glorious word of Khorne.I forgot, these 'nids have a color scheme yet?>captcha: combat diva
>>35629127It’s been a few hours since you last interacted with the Zoanthrope. Last you knew it was dealing with the Blood Ravens trying to accost the Salvage Team from the Raptor. Whether it survived or if it is even still willing to deal with you is entirely unknown. You’d like to be an optimist but experience has shown you it’s best to assume the worst so you can be pleasantly surprised. After fiddling with the vox frequency you raise the shuttle pilot. His voice is shakey and full of anxiety. “Y-Yes Ma’am?”“Are my new ‘friends’ waiting outside like I asked?”“Yes, they...they are.” You hear him audibly shiver even through the microbead. Good news though. “Good. I need you to go give the one with the big head your vox unit.”The pilot’s first reaction is to protest with a loud “WHAT?!” A pointed growl from you shuts his whining up before it even begins. You hear some shuffling, a few “Skree’s,” and then a semi-familiar slithering Contralto fills the line.“Sssso, you didn’t forget about ussss after all. Your crew issss fine and the Marinessss are dead. They were very tassssty.”You laugh at the thought of those kleptomaniacs being torn to shreds despite their power armor. “Good, good, glad you enjoyed…”>  I’ll have the shuttle pilot find his balls and take you to the Raptor>  How would you like to come over to my new flagship?>  I’m altering the deal… (Specify)>  Write in

>>35629677>  How would you like to come over to my new flagship?
>>35629608The skulls ran away, I'll have to claim them later. Dumping more bugs in the meantime, since we've never approached image limit and I like fine-tuning 'nid appearances; I'll desist after the next ELH post if I even have that many relevant pics.
>>35629677Wow I'm lagging. Abstaining this time.>>35629735Only have a couple left, so just gonna dump all the bogz. Grabbed this guy for legs, but the color scheme has promise with more red and/or brass.
>>35629608White Chitin, Black muscle/skin, blue highlights if the original Zoan reference is to be trusted. But I'm sure a generation or two down the line they can be whatever color they want.
>>35629802These legs work as functional limbs or as slicers.And I'm done. Any opinions?
Flagship fun it is. Writing...
>>35628928>Besides, you can slay pests like the Rak’gol all day. Right? It’s not like they have sorcerers or anything among their ranks...of course they have those, and thats part of the funimagine killing those and claiming their skulls! it would be glorious!
>>35629677After a pause, you continue, “I’ve been thinking it over and…”A warning hiss cuts you off. “I sssshould have known you were going to…”“Calm down. I just think you might be better off on my Flagship than on the vessel that shuttle belongs to.”The Zoanthrope remains silent for a minute. If you had to guess it’s experiencing whatever the Tyranid-equivalent of embarrassment is. Finally, it replies, “Where issss thisss ssship?”“That’s the bad news. Or the good news maybe. If you continue down the corridor we found you in you’ll come across a balcony overlooking it.”“It’sss inssside the Hulk?”“It won’t be for long. We’ll be leaving in about…” You glance over at Ignitrix and cough. She sighs exasperatedly and grumbles that she needs about thirty minutes more. Returning to your microbead, “thirty minutes. And you’ll need to be off the Hulk around then either way. It’s going to impact the black hole shortly.”“That isss a tight window. I won’t be able to get all of my sssswarm there in time.” It doesn’t sound thrilled but you still get the sense it realizes you’re not trying to trick it.“Well there’s more. You’ll have to fight through Rak’gol to get here.”“Rak’gol? I am not familiar with them. Can they be eaten?”“Pretty sure they can. They bleed pretty well so I can only assume…”“...Are you sssure there’sss no other option?”>  You could stuff as many of your swarm onto that shuttle and join us once we’re out of the Hulk>  You could always go rush the Blood Ravens and take some of their shuttles>  See if you can send out a drone from the Engine to pick some of them up (Int)>  Not really, you’d best start rushing this way

>>35630433i forgot, do we roll over or under?
>>35630180You mull it over for a moment before responding. “I’ll see about sending a drone your way. But I would seriously consider either getting on that shuttle or trying to rush the Blood Ravens. Your swarm’s going to be split up either way.”“Sssso it would sssseem.” There’s the sound of screeching and a few muffled “WHY?!” before the Zoanthrope continues. “I’ve moved onto the sssshuttle with my five besssst gauntssss. The resssst here will wait for that drone for ten minutessss. Then they will try to come to you. Any otherssss I’ll sssend towardsss the Ravensss but they may become mindlesss.”“Mindless?” you ask. You’re not exactly up to speed on how the Tyranids work. “Asss sshameful asss it isss to admit, I have limited range of control. Without sssomething like me they will lack direction…”“I see… Well I’ll see you in a bit then.”“Ssssss…” You take that as a positive reaction. Clicking off the bead, you look over to Ignitrix. “Can you give me drone control over here?”“Why don’t I just BECOME the… yes here. Now PLEASE let me concentrate.”With that an interface similar to that of the Glaive’s from earlier springs into existence from one of the walls. With no friendly machine spirit to guide you, though, you’re not exactly the best remote pilot. In fact, the very first drone you’re able to get out of the bay (albeit after slamming it into the walls a few times on the way out) is immediately torn to pieces by the Rak’gol outside. So much for that idea.You step away from the drone controls and reactivate your bead. “You’re going to want to have your Gaunts start moving this way now. The drone is a no go.”“Thankssss for trying…”Well now that that’s out of the way…>  Call up the Raptor and the Inferno>  Check on Acerea>  Blood Raven manipulation time (Fel)>  Write in

>>35630752Acerea seems to still be working on her plan to deal with the Rak’gol. Although a few red dots are starting to break inside some of the drone and shuttlebays, you do notice the Plaguebearer manipulating the drones, tanks, and servitors to deal with them. You’ve probably got time for one more long call and one quick one.The longer you stare at the dots, the more an idea forms in your head. Talking to Sergeant Damas earlier was infuriating but maybe you can achieve better results by going straight to the top. To that end you try out several frequencies before raising one of the Blood Raven’s Chaplains.“Who is this? How did you get this frequency?” he gruffly asks.“Who I am and how I know is not important. What is important is that your Company, or perhaps several Companies, is harboring heresy.”“How dare…”You cut him off with verbal steel. “Silence. Do not make me invoke my Rosette or I swear...”His tone changes almost immediately. Space Marine he may be but the threat of the Inquisition is just that strong. “You must be Inquisitor Cinder then. We have been trying to reach you ever since Sergeant Damas of the 10th company fell silent. You were the last to talk to him and we were worried something had happened to you both.”“Yes. I am she. As for Damas, we were both ambushed by Rak’gol. He and his squad did not survive. I myself barely escaped with my acolytes.”Even Ignitrix looks up from her work to give you a thumbs up. You’re selling this pretty well and the Chaplain seems to be buying every word.“The Rak’gol… we knew they were aboard but we have been avoiding contact. A shame Damas was lost, but he died in the service of the Emperor. Do you require backup? What is this about harboring heresy?”You think about this for a second. You reasonably know the path the Tyranids will take to get to you so it’s just a matter of having the Ravens not intersect it. For now.(cont)
>>35631663“Normally I wouldn’t dare work with your Chapter after an incident that shall not be discussed now. But I’m willing to give you ONE chance so long as you do three things.”“Name it, Madam Inquisitor. We wish to prove our loyalty to the Emperor and the Imperium.”“First, you will send at least one barge to the following coordinates…” You nod over at Ignitrix who grumbles something about being an acolyte again. “We will be emerging from the Hulk shortly in a vessel that must be protected at all costs.”“Of course. May I be so bold as to ask what it is?”“No you may not. The second thing is you are to immediately send two companies towards the middle of the Hulk. We are currently being besieged by Rak’gol and they are already breaching our hull.”“The Captain is here next to me. He says there are three already on the way.”“Good, your company isn’t entirely incompetent then.” You consider one final order. It’s highly unlikely they’ll go for it but you’ve gotten this far… “Finally, you are to immediately bolt down and seal EVERY container aboard your vessels. I have reason to believe the contents of some of them have been tainted due to the odd Warp Phenomena surrounding the Hulk.” You see no reason to tell them it’s actually the Engine behind it. “I… I…”“Chaplain may I remind you I will not hesitate to have the Captain next to you execute you for heresy if you disobey.”“It… will be done.” He sounds absolutely torn and dejected. That alone made this vox-call worth it. You cut the call before stretching your luck any further.Ignitrix is shooting you an occasional envious glance between furious taps on her data slate while Acerea is hard at work with her minions and the Rak’gol. >  Quick call to the Raptor and the Inferno>  Check on Ignitrix>  Check on AcereaInquisitors don't fuck around

>>35631677Iggy needs concentration, and know what she's doing. Let's see what Acerea is cooking up, and if we can improve on it/turn it to our advantage. Maybe pop a quick message to the Raptor & the Inferno first to let them know the Blood Ravens are coming to help and should NOT be fired upon, and to try not to look TOO heretical.
>>35631677>>  Quick call to the Raptor and the InfernoJust give them a quick heads up as to the plan thus far.
>>35631677> Check on Acerea
>>35631677>  Quick call to the Raptor and the Inferno
Literally a sentence or two to the Raptor then you'll check on Acerea. Writing...
>>35631677>>  Quick call to the Raptor and the Inferno
>>35631677Before checking on Acerea you raise Proditus for a quick word. “Y-Yes Mistress?”“One of the Marine Barges may try to interface with you shortly. Try not to be too heretical. Also we’ll be coming out of the Hulk hot in a new ship. Keep the Rak’Gol off of us.”“I… Yes of cour…”You don’t let him finish. Ever since Small...No-Horn’s “death” you’ve been channeling that energy into Proditus. Mostly because he hasn’t improved one bit since you first met him and since Ignitrix can fill his role easily. He’s rather useless these days actually. But you’ll worry about that later.Walking over to the hologram projection you observe how the Rak’gol seem to be funneling into two bays in particular. Once inside, the dots start to disappear as they’re picked off by Acerea. Or so you assume. Not all of the Rak’gol are trying to get in, though. A good number of the dots seem to be pulling away from the Engine’s hull to deal with what you guess is either the Tyranids or the Ravens. Or both.“THAT’S BULLSHIT!” shouts Acerea, startling Ignitrix and you alike. “He can do that?!”“Do what?” you ask as you walk over to see what she’s angry about. The drone control display is currently displaying the interior of one of the bays the Rak’gol are coming into. In particular, you see one of the Xenos, more an amalgamation of machine, crystal, and flesh, controlling what looks to be the remnants of a Glaive and a servitor mashed together. “Oh…”“Yeah. Oh. He’s tearing apart everything I throw at him and just adding it to that mechanical abomination.” Apparently Acerea’s still bitter about that potted fern from earlier. Usually she’s not this worked up.>  Can you handle things otherwise? I can go deal with him myself>  I need you to come with me to deal with him. Ignitrix will just have to multitask more.>  Let’s just isolate that bay for now and focus on the rest of the Rak’gol

>>35632547To explain, in DoW you could play as the Blood Ravens, and most of the higher-leveled gear was artifact equipment. The items had little story blurbs on them which had a noticeable tendency to end with something along the lines of "how this relic found it's way to the Blood Ravens is unknown," and they were from all over the place. Thus, the explanation was that they'd run around nicking shit.

>>35632634No, you don't understand.They have shit that NO Chapter would EVER give up, under ANY circumstances.Like >>35632559 said, they have THE Relic Hammer of the Black Templars, a thing that has only been used by the current Chapter Master / Lord Marshal.The Blood Ravens don't even know what their progenitor Chapter was, or their founder, or their exact founding, or anything, "Excellent" record keeping my ass.A nobody chapter like the Blud Ravens doesn't get artifact shit directly from the vault of the Custodes.
>>35632634Boreale plz goYou are meant to be dead, with your soul stealing a single socks from pairs for shits and giggles.
>>35632712>stealing a single socksFuck i'm tired
>>35632688So what's keeping the other chapters from ganging up on the and wrecking their shit over it?
>>35632712So that's who took all my socks? That bastard.
>>35632752the fact the bluhd rahvens are so insufferable to be around that they 'gift' artifacts to them just to keep them way the fuck away
>>35632752They're a chapter that basically only exists in the DoW games, and the protagonists no less. It would be a little confusing for a player to suddenly get his shit kicked in over things he didn't actually do.Fluff wise, they're a small chapter that's taking constant losses in their sector and aren't overt in their thefts. It wouldn't be worth the effort to kill them. No one really likes them, though. They never get invited to parties.
>>35632688>A nobody chapter like the Blud Ravens doesn't get artifact shit directly from the vault of the Custodes.And who the fuck are you? GW's Custodian of Lore?Blood Ravens are probably one of THE most important Chapters.
>>35632291You watch as the Rak’gol… thing tears apart another group of servitors like they were nothing. Half of the metal gets tacked onto his floating metal monstrosity while the rest is fused with the bodies of the other Rak’gol in the bay. The longer you sit here playing Captain the stronger that thing gets. That said, you can’t pull either of your daemon friends away to help you take it down. Ignitrix has to focus on the AI, flying you out, and keeping you from being blown to bits by the Marauders outside. Acerea on the other Rak’gol that aren’t walking anathemas to Tech and Khorne alike. “I’ll be back,” you say, cracking your neck as you start to walk towards the exit. “I’m going to go deal with Acerea’s best friend down in Bay #2.”“Be careful!” calls Ignitrix.“You can do it!” cheers Acerea.With that the door shuts behind you and the two return to their work.

We should level up our BS skill nextWe might be getting a gun soon anyways
>>35632954>Possibly.Judging from what I've seen/read, we'll get like 1-2 shots off before the techno-shaman either shuts it off or tears it apart. Then we're on our own.
>>35632870>1] Attempt to bring a GlaiveThese things are valuable, and he's likely to fuck it up, but I don't trust our aim with a chaingun. Let's try hammering them with all the template weapons we can to wipe out the smallfry, then jump out and warpchain to the techno-shaman before he can rape our tank and commence with RIP AND TEAR.

>>35633022>>  Take Shiela
>>35633022> Take ShielaWe like her, so we will give her the chance to prove herself and the purity of her purpose against an enemy such as the Techno-shaman. Will she end up being just a piece of metal, or a Valkyrie of death singing of her triumph over her foes with the blasts of her guns!Also, she is so getting possessed later on.
>>35633022if we take shiela, we should not let her get close and just provide covering fire for us
>>35633022> Take Shielas that a RvB reference?
>>35632870> The only weapons you need are your clawsanything we take down will only end up feeding the bastard...
>>35633064I mean, let's totes give her a little pep talk, and maybe infuse her with chaos somehow? Bleed into her engine or something to mark her as ours, and carve an 8 pointed star into her prow 8 times in a giant 8 shape?
>>35632979Fuck that, it's a lost cause. Why suck slightly less at something we never use anyway when we can become ridiculously great at what we already do well? S, WS, and Fel are Cinder's most used stats, followed by T and Ag. Int and WP are solid mid-priority stats, and there's no middle ground between them and dump stat BS. Let's not get any more MAD than we already are. Another 5 points would be wasted on a stat we avoid depending on - we get a bonus on warpchain, mo'dakka, and blast, and that's why those are the only times we use BS.
>>35633075EL TANKE GRANDE>>35633064>Also, she is so getting possessed later on.you say that like she needs a daemon to possess her, and not the other way around

Sheila it is.Whether or not it's -iela or -eila is up to temporary dyslexia.Writing...
>>35633133In a just and kind universe, we will find these gravestones in the background of official GW art.
>>35633108I feel like we could meld a demon to her soul so that she remains what self she is, but also grows as she can perceive more of the world. But we ain't gonna do that for no tank that can't take on one pussy-ass technoshaman.
>>35632688>A nobody chapter like the Blud Ravens doesn't get artifact shit directly from the vault of the Custodes.Sure they do, as long as they don't actually ASK the custodes permission first and sneak in at night to grab it when nobody is looking

Guys, that thing already ate a glaivewhy are we feeding it another?We should hit it with our warp chains. Because I don't see it eating those.
>>35633108>EL TANKE GRANDEhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzDCFOZsXOk
>>35633226we're not trying to feed it another, we're bringing her to help out and fire from range while we slice and dice
>>35633270>Plans work as planned.its gonna eat it.
>>35633157Anyone else up for blessing/consecrating/defiling the tank in the name of Khorne before we go, just in case it helps?
>>35633226Because it has backup, and Sheila packs dual flamers and a battle cannon to outclass Baneblades. Wipe the backup, have Sheila pull out while we chain over for single combat. Hopefully.Might be handy to be able to order bombardment on the fucker if it comes too close to killing us, too - burn Iggy's bonus on a Toughness test to live through the blast. Not very Khornate to call for help in a duel like that, though...Speaking of us dying: >>35633157 ELH, have we regenerated any wounds since fighting our way in past Rak'gol?
>>35633157ok so, here is my plan. we immobilize it with warp chains. then shoot at it repeatedly with the main cannon of the tank.
>>35633345we can do that? that would be nice.actually, can we intentionally work on corrupting something? we really should get around to corrupting our nids into khornish kay-os nids
>>35633345Not a bad plan, but every second we delay is a second that abomination subverts more of our shiny new ship's priceless tech. Maybe if Sheila can autopilot while we smear Gaelos' heart on the walls.
>>35633345if we can do that before the fight I'm all for it
>>35633381I don't know how effective we'll be, but we can at least put Khorne's mark onto it. I assume proper sanctification will have to come through battle, as it sheds blood and collects skulls in Khorne's name.I mean, we ain't no pussy ass sorcerer, thinking just dancing and chanting is gonna get this shit done. If Shieila is worthy, she will grow in power and be blessed. If not, then she will fall as is the fate of the weak.
>>35633418so tl:dr>Yes we can>The process is to put the mark of khorne on it and then have it win battles
>>35632870The way you see it, it’s suicide to just go charging in with just your claws. Sure it’s not entirely glorious to rely on something like a Glaive to do the heavy lifting, but it might keep you alive. And a dead Herald of Khorne isn’t able to claim any skulls. You make a beeline for your new friend Sheila. The Glaive is where you left it, in the middle of the drone bay near the AI core. This time around, though, you have an atmosphere and gravity to work with. Which makes you wonder - how did the tank not have a problem moving around the last time? Hoping into the tank, you start it up as you remember. Sheila’s voice once again fills the cabin.“WELCOME TO THE HAV MAIN BATTLE TANK. MY NAME IS SHEILA, HOW CAN I BE OF ASSISTANCE TODAY?”“Hi Sheila. We’re going to go kill some Rak’gol but I have to know something - are you able to magnetize your treads or something?”“YES. THIS UNIT IS EQUIPPED WITH BOTH EXTERNAL JETS AND MAGNETIC MOBILITY ASSISTANCE.”“So you’re saying this thing can what… fly too?”“THE JETS ARE ONLY ABLE TO PROVIDE TEN SECONDS OF LIFT IN NORMAL TERRA GRAVITY.”Which means if you took it into space…“One more thing. Can you operate autonomously?”“YES. THOUGH OPERATOR INJURY MAY OCCUR IF TARGETING PARAMETERS ARE NOT PROPERLY CONFIGURED.”Hmmm… >  Take a service lift down>  Surprise the Rak’gol by entering from the outside>  Split up. Let Sheila come from the outside and you’ll attack from within
I just realized what we are about to do.A daemon of blood and violence and her pet MBT is about to get in a duel against a radioactive mutant alien bastard on his new technoabomination on the edge of a black hole.This is, without at doubt, the most metal thing ever.It is sufficiently metal to be a Judas Priest album cover and I will fight you if you say different.
>>35633359Threeish hours of rest means you get six wounds back. That brings you to 16 total.
>>35633470> Surprise the Rak’gol by entering from the outside

>>35633476The sheer METAL of this situation pleases The Tainted Coi- I mean Khorne.Like, holy shit, nothing will ever be more METAL than this, Khorne will wait eternity to see something as metal as this and end up wanting.

>>35633476You forgot to mention>The daemon of blood and violence is wearing the corrupted and torn vestments of one of The Holy Inquisition and has DRAGONSKULL pauldrons.Like, in that album cover there would be a highlight of our corrupted Rosette swinging out from around Cinder's neck.

>>35633470> Split upWe'll be comlinked to her to order her attack and retreat, right?I kinda want her to pick up a few squads of 'nids to drop off after her flamer massacre, but coordinating that seems unworth the time.
>>35633561Khornate magic actually exists, its just mostly ritual and forging stuff. Which makes sense, as none of that is actual fighting, but rather enabling the blood to flow

>>35633740Let's do that to reward her for victory, just in case we need the wounds.

>>35634006Shrug, they're pretty canon, I think.More than Space Marine, at least, which has been blatantly said to be not canon
>>35633470“Alright, show me how to configure those parameters then. I’ll be sending you outside to approach Shuttlebay #2 that way while I take a lift down.”“PARAMETERS MAY BE CONFIGURED USING THE FOLLOWING MENU.”The HUD changes to a massive arrangement of images representing different factions, aliens, daemons, and everything inbetween. Two boxes sit on the extreme edges of the screen, labeled “KILL” and “NOT KILL.” Damned simple.“Question: What happens if I don’t put something in either box?”“THIS UNIT WILL IGNORE THEIR PRESENCE UNLESS HOSTILITY IS DETECTED.”With that in mind, you immediately shuffle through the pictograms to find the Rak’gol. They’re tossed into the KILL column without a second thought. For good measure you move Tyranids into the NOT KILL group just in case they show up. Daemons join them, but otherwise you leave the rest unsegregated. “Alright Shiela, do I need to do anything else?”“NEGATIVE. YOU MAY CHANGE PARAMETERS VOCALLY AT ANY TIME USING THE FOLLOWING FREQUENCY.”A vox frequency appears on the screen. You take note of it and hop out of the Glaive. After a few moments, Shiela starts to move towards one of the launch tubes for the drones. With a whoosh she’s gone, out onto the hull of the Engine and hopefully able to take care of herself. Wait, are you starting to worry about a tank of all things?Shaking your head to clear your thoughts, you practically run to one of the lifts and punch in your destination. The ride down is perhaps the worst part of the day so far. You’re anticipating a challenging battle ahead but there’s nothing you can do in this elevator but wait. And as any warrior knows, idleness is where the actual daemons lie. (cont)

>>35634060As soon as the doors pop open you burst forth brandishing your claws. Ahead are two Rak’gol (partially metallic) with their backs to you. Beyond them are perhaps ten more besides the Techno-Shaman. The latter is currently spinning his death machine around and inspecting it. He’s in the middle of the bay while the others are equally spaced throughout.Just before you can act, the entire ship rocks. Ignitrix’s voice fills your mind a second later.<We’re golden.

The Rak’gol still haven’t noticed you by the time you get right up behind them. Twisting your wrist, you plunge your claws into the neck of the one on the right. It dies instantly but its fellow has already taken note. Mostly from the blood spraying from the wound and the dropped Rad-Axe. Before you can silence it it unleashes a shrieking cry that reverberates throughout the shuttlebay. Your claws shut it up in milliseconds though the damage is done. All ten Rak’gol, plus the Techno-shaman, have turned towards you with murderous intent. The latter unleashes a battle cry that sends chills down your spine. Enraged by this you bellow out a response that causes the two nearest Rak’gol to recoil in alarm. So these things can experience fear. Good.

>>35634529>[2; 4]Pull him to us for single combat while our minions fight the mooks.I kinda wanted to let Sheila fry him though; can we grab him & wait until the blast to pull?
>>35634711That was close.
>>35634724Fuck of rollplayer. You don't make decisions based on dice, you make them on BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
>>35634695Damn, does the mage at least get distracted/disrupted by our chain attack? I mean, the goal is to keep him from doing shit, ripping off his head is just the best way to go about it.
>>35634737That doesn't mean shit if we don't win. And the other option would have had the most skulls and blood anyway.
>>35634737How about we make the decisions based on what doesn't get us killed and brings shame to Khorne?
>>35634698>>35634709>>35634711Well you dodged the death beam so you have that going for you. I have a number in mind for how much damage it does but someone should really calculate out how much it should given those three I listed. That said.... you missed with your chains. Even with the reroll. Distraction for the Nids/Shiela perhaps? I guess you'll just have to see...Writing.
>>35634742Well, with >>35634709 is won't be too bad. Pass barely, fail barely.
>>35634709We could use Iggy's boon to grab him, but let's try to save that for a killing blow.
>>35634698>>35634709>>35634711 Well, we Dodge, but don't get the TechnoShamen... better than the inverse...
Even if we miss, which we sort of have, if they end up in the deck near him, we can pull us towards him with the chains.Ballistic chains? Cool.Ballisitc Cindernaut? Priceless.
>>35634752Yeah, but we went after the best skull. Quantity of blood, quality of skulls. Plus this leaves the smaller fry for our minions to curry some favor with Daddy.
>>35634794We would have gotten that one anyway. And that way no one could have interrupted our 1vs1 against him.
>>35634760Shiela and the 'Nids.Best back up band ever
>>35634760So.. We dodged his shot(s) and distracted him while our Main Battle Tank skullfucks him from behind a wave of Tyranids?Just. As. Planned.
>>35634844>We dodged his shot(s) and distracted him while our Main Battle Tank skullfucks him from behind a wave of Tyranids?No, we dodged the shot of our MBT. And then failed at getting close to him.
>>35634844That's the trick, you see. My plan is always BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!
>>35634844We dodged the tank and 'nids but failed to bind him with warp chainsAt the very least we made a cool entrance
>>35634940Let's throw some Rak'gols at the shaman after overloading the cores of their guns.
>>35634870>>35634940He, not Sheila, is firing on us. He cannibalized a tank already, and apparently turned it and a servitor into a gun for his techno-abomination.Lazarus is going to be ecstatic.
>>35635021Why? All he's going to get from that is scraps. ;uckily, we have a whole ship of archeotech for him to go nuts over.
>>35635021Yo, this guy ate and absorbed one of our tank's siblings. This could potentially be a very tragic experience for our tank.
>>35635061Yeah but all the bits will be fused in crazy ways.
>>35635061He's a Biologis. How often does a guy get the chance to disect Rak'gol?>>35635086I hope so. Anger is Khornate, after all.
Sheila needs to become a Lady of Skulls when all this is over.
>>35634529It’s a good thing you have daemonic reflexes and that the shuttlebay has multiple venues to use as cover. A chorus of high-pitched whines fill the bay as you dance through the barbed slugs ejected from the Rak’gol’s Razor guns. A couple clip you along the way just due to the sheer number of them (-3 wounds) but they don’t concern you. What DOES concern you is that cannon that’s roaring to life.You bend low and leap backwards and to the right. Not a moment too soon. The space below you fills with a green beam that burns a six foot diameter hole in the wall beyond. Khornate daemon you may be, but you know you won’t likely survive getting hit by that more than once.Landing, you dive behind the nearest cover which happens to be crates of some sort. Slugs pound off the sides as you eye the forcefield keeping the atmosphere in the shuttlebay. Beyond lies the vastness of space, except it’s filled with a light show to end all light shows. Howler cannons from the Marauders, Lances from the Imperium ships, Torpedos and Fightercraft from both parties, and the thunderous cry of whatever the Engine has. All of it set against the backdrop of a Space Hulk starting to be torn apart by a Black Hole. Sadly, you don’t have the time to marvel at the sight. It does serve to remind you about your Zoanthrope friend though. “HEY. YOU. SHUTTLE PILOT WHO I DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HIS NAME. GET THAT THING IN THIS BAY NOW.”You don’t even wait for a reply before switching channels to Shiela’s. “FOLLOW THE NEXT SHUTTLE IN. COVER ITS ENTRANCE UNTIL THEN.”“AFFIRM-”(Cont)
So, what are we going to bind that Demon from Iggy's flashback to?Our Claws? The ship? Shelia?
>>35635213With that you leap out from behind the crate as it too is vaporized by the Shaman’s cannon. You immediately retaliate with a ranged attack of your own, but the chains go wide. A short dance ensues, with you using the chains to pull yourself out of the line of fire just in the nick of time. Just when you begin to curse the fact your backup is useless, a shuttle swoops into view outside. On top of it is Shiela, main cannon whirling and shooting down Rak’gol stranglers still trying to get inside.As you dive behind cover for the second time, your support makes its entrance. The moment it’s inside, the Glaive’s cannon swirls to meet the Shaman’s. Both scream as their respective weapons emit a torrent of death at each other. Each stream is canceled by the other, causing a massive explosion just inside the forcefield. This tears the shuttle apart (along with three Rak’gol) but it seems both the Zoanthrope and Shiela prepared for this eventuality. Surrounded in a psychic bubble, the former flies from the wreckage with its five Gaunts. Immediately they leap towards the remaining normal Rak’gol with skrees of their own. The latter fires its jets and clangs to the deck unharmed.>  Continue to distract the Shaman with your chains until that cannon is down (BS+20)>  Get in close combat. NOW.

>>35635229Not wasting this opportunity, you leap with all your might at the Shaman. It’s quick on the draw though. An invisible wave of telekinetic force slams into you and stops your progress cold. You might as well have run into a wall. A wall that really, REALLY hurts (-10 wounds). Blood dripping from somewhere under your hair you roar and leap again. This time the Shaman’s unable to respond in time. You knock the crystalblades implanted into its arms aside and rake its left side. Two arms go flying before the Shaman catches on. It drives you back with its blades but at least now you’re in striking distance. To your immediate right, the cannon thunders once more. You hear another eruption from Shiela and the subsequent explosion behind you. This sends your hair and cape fluttering, and motivates you to put forth another cry of battle.

>>35635626Probably Bolter, with that massive modifier, but it doesn't get our unholy damage bonuses for Unnatural Strength, so it might just piss it off.
heads up guys, we're at 3 wounds
>>35635550> He can’t be a psychic PANSY BITCH if he doesn’t have a head (WS-10)
>>35635659And since we're rolling WP... we've got to win against the Shaman or our head could LITERALLY explode. Fucking Shamans.
>>35635686well i'm completely unfamiliar with BC/DH rules but ELH has said we can go to -13 wounds, but I've no idea what happens when we get below 0
>>35635723Oh no it's not because of the wounds. See >>35629102. We're having to deal with one of those two bottom powers.
>>35635723Once we go below 0 we'll probably start getting critically damaged. Stuff like losing limbs or having our head explode, causing people within 5 meters to take an agility test or get wounded by flying shards of skull.
>>35635550can you clarify what the -10 and +50 mean?Does a minus makes it easier or harder? or those influencing the DC, or is the DC independent and those only influence our rolls instead?
>>35635723at zero we are disabled. IIRC at -maxHP we "die". as long as it isn't a true death (like through a null) then we will respawn in the warp after an indeterminate amount of time has passed.
>>35635723Critical damage in the 40K RPGs is anything in the negatives, and inflict effects based on damage type (Rending, Energy, Explosive, or Impact) and hit location (head, torso, individual limbs)1d4chan.org/wiki/Dark_HeresyThe crit tables are in the gallery. Read them, marvel, and laugh.
>>35635790Influencing how easy our ability check will be. Let's say I've got an Ag of 30 and want to roll a test against it. I've got to roll beneath 30. Now let's say I'm checking against agility with a +20 bonus. 30+20=50. I have to roll underneath 50.
>>35635762Hey, when we go below 0, do you think we'll get points for taking our own skull clean off our shoulders?
 and  are tied. You have ~5 minutes to break said tie.>>35635790>>35635830 is correct.Fun fact: So is >>35635749
>>35635790They affect the DC, rolls can't be affected in this system. We try to roll under our stat, plus/minus modifiers, on a d100. Thus, minuses are bad, because they shrink our target range of numbers.
>>35635550>>35635830ok so. our WS is 58. our BS is 11so that means that the DC for the actions are>48>58>61respectively?so, is there any reason to not vote 3 here?
>>35635866>>35635550> He can’t be a psychic PANSY BITCH if he doesn’t have a head (WS-10)
>>35635866I'll switch from >>35635638to >  Pull out your Grey Knight Bolter and Commissar him (BS+50)I'd rather roll against a 61 than a 48
>>35635902>>35635907God damn it guys.>>35635897Fuck off Vaelys.
>>35635897Because the two actions do different things. A bolter shot might not be as effective as our claws decapitating him, given their resilience.
>>35635897It won't do as much damage as our claws with the second option and if we roll under 48 in the 1st option its practically a guaranteed kill.
>>35635897I don't fancy our chances of lasting long in a WP battle against the shaman, we need to finish this fast. The bolt gun doesn't have enough damage to do that.
>>35635897>so, is there any reason to not vote 3 here?Nope
>>35635866I'll switch >>35635642to >  He can’t be a psychic PANSY BITCH if he doesn’t have a head (WS-10)
>>35635922Why don't we just put five bolts in his head instead of one?
>>35635963Because trying to hold a gun to someone's head for that long won't work.
Am I the only one who misses the warp? The warp was fucking AWESOMEdragons, and blood lakes, and demons... there was so much awesome fuck to be had.The real world is so boring compared to it.

It's been Confirmed.Wherever Rak'Gol Techno-Shamans are, they fuck with everyone that isn't the GM's fun and don't know when to fucking quit, regardless of the medium they show up in.
>>35636117I am completely confused about these rules and whether or not we got a good result.
>>35636175The second roll was for him. And he succeeded just as well as we have.
>>35636196It's gonna be a draw
>>35636039>>35636071Make it so. Slowly ripping off his head would be epic, but unceremoniously lopping it off is more the Inquisitor's style.
>>35636208I am still confused.
>>35636221Eh, always using our claws gets old eventually.
>>35636257Good thing then that we constantly use idfferent weapons in addition to our claws.

>>35635550The full, raw fury of the Warp smashes against your mental barricade like a tidal wave. For a moment you struggle to hold the line, your eyes narrowing in concentration as you fight off the psychic assault. Such is your resistance that the Rak’gol Shaman has to take his attention away from controlling his cannon. The next shot from it goes wide, soaring over Shiela, passing through the forcefield, and colliding with a skiff outside. The Glaive’s main battery is right on the mark though, causing the technological abomination to explode into bits next to the pair of you.The Shaman flinches as metal rains down (-1 wound). His mental barrage lets up for just a moment. A moment is all you need.You cock your fist back then pour every ounce of your remaining strength into the punch that follows. A sickening dual crack of both psychic energy and the shaman’s head severing from the neck fills the bay. The former flings you back across the floor (-1 wound), while the latter goes soaring into a Rak’gol behind it. The Xenos literally evaporates in a shower of gore, leaving you a few feet from where you started. Around you you see the Tyranids mopping up the few Rak’gol who remained standing. Just as the Zoanthrope notices you and begins floating over, your vision begins to blur. You’re vaguely aware of Ignitrix yelling in alarm in your mind before all goes blank.Suddenly you’re sitting in a chair. Across from you is Khorne himself, albeit twice your size.“WELL NOW.

>>35636601>>35636702>>35636703Well, I don't see any wings on it. It's gotta have wings.
>>35636758Even if it is the worst stat, situations will inevitably crop up where we will want to kill something out of arms reach. Even an incremental increase helps those rolls out a lot.
>>35636601Why the "only one set of arms" though, four arms would be amazing.
>>35636815I would find it acceptable if we sacrificed wings for very powerful jumps and a second pair of arms, for more attacks.Or we don't actually need wings to fly, I think Bloodthirsters mainly use them to direct their glides.
>>35636727>Dumpstats, never a good idea.exccept they usually arein this case, its melee vs ranged attack. focusing highly on one over the other gives us superior resultscurrently we suck ass in balistics and kick ass with melee. +10 to WS would bring us from 58% of success per roll to 68% of success per roll.While +10 to BS will bring us from 11% chance of success per roll to 21% chance of success per roll.It is better to just not personally use ranged weapons.
So... we still gonna be sexy?
>>35636820Not really, 21 is still way too low to be useable. Better up AG and get faster so we can close the distance more easily.
>>35636842I'M AS FREEEEEE AS A BIRD NOWWW
>>35636810It's also Suitably Khornate.Fucking Every Khornate Chaos Spess Muhreen has two or more fang-filled maws SOMEWHERE on them.
>>35636601WS+5 and BS+5
>>35636601>WS+AGOr just AG? Might be good too.
>>35636863We are a Daemon, it's less about that being our "True Form" and more about it being our "Preferred Form"We'll most likely have a hueg spiky deathbringer form for combat, and a more normal (But still possessing traits of deathmode) form for out of combat.
>>35636863I don't know about you but *I* certainly find spikes sexually attractive.
>>35636863Yes, just much more terrifying and slightly huge and swole
>>35636404You try very very hard not to squee in pride at being pulled into another face to face meeting with your patron. “I umm… Skulls. Yeah, Skulls. I got you this skull...and this one...and this one...and this one I JUST go- Wait where the fuck is it! WHERE IS IT! Nooooooooo~”As you fret about not having EVERY skull you’ve taken since the last time you saw him, you’re aware of a hand coming down towards your own. Bracing yourself for what you assume is annihilation, you’re left stunned to find it’s a headpat. “CALM DOWN GIRL. I GOT THAT ONE ALREADY. IT WAS WRAPPED UP WITH ANOTHER.”“I… Oh…”So this is why Ignitrix likes headpats. You note to give her more in the future.“BUT YES. I AM VERY PLEASED BY YOUR RESULTS THUS FAR. CORRUPTING TYRANIDS AND BLOOD RAVENS TO BOOT? I JUST CALL THAT GOOD WORK. I DO EXPECT YOU TO BE RIDING A BRASS BEHEMOTH INTO BATTLE IN DUE TIME THOUGH.”“Yes. Yes of course!”“KEEP DOING WHAT YOU’RE DOING OTHERWISE. NOW RUN ALONG.”And then you’re back in realspace. But not in the form you remember. It’s stronger, faster, and many other things besides. You. Feel. Amazing. Of course, this change causes the Zoanthrope to skree in alarm and skitter-float backwards. Ignitrix slams and bounces off your mind twice before she’s able to get a coherent sentence off.<WHAT DID YOU DO?!>>  I’ll tell you about it in the bloodbath later>  I learned the value of headpats>  Write in ...And while that happens I have to try and narrow down what the fuck changes to make.

Okay so I THINK Ag and BS are getting +5 each from you guys.Bloodthirster changes are as follows:+5 WS (Gotta keep it slightly sane or you'll abuse it)+5 BS+10 S and T. Your daemonic bonuses go up by 3 each.+5 Agi+10 Int+10 Per+5 WP (With an additional +10 resistance to any psychic attacks)+2 FelYou now have normal daemonic regen. Meaning you heal fully given one hour's worth of rest if the wounds were not inflicted with things like Grey Knight weapons.Now to calculate that mess out...
>>35637017Go home ND your drunk.
>>35637049Partying means applying extreme violence, of course
>>35637068>Ag and BS are getting +5OH fuck no.We actually wasted a upgrade on a stat we will still fail at most of the time and have never any good reason for using.
>>35637068>+5 WS (Gotta keep it slightly sane or you'll abuse it)Nah, let's explode a bunch of heads like Anima.
>>35637068the fuck? how did BS win?WHY did BS win? are we retarded?
>>35636923I wonder if Khorne finds it refreshing to have a Daughter that loves him so much she drops spaghetti over the thought of not pleasing him.Not out of fear, but out of her own mentality.
>>35637120I look forward to throwing axes at people.Lots of Radaxes lying around.
>>35637068>Ag and BSWhen did you cut off? BS has only 4 votes against WS 7.
>>35636923AND NOW.WE BEGIN CORRUPTING SHEILA INTO OUR BRASS BEHEMOTH.
>>35637120no idea anon, I thought WS was in the lead by far
>>35636923>  I’ll tell you about it in the bloodbath laterWe have to Deck Sheila out with Bronze plating and bind daemons into ALL THE GUNSpossibly see if our resident Dark Mechanicus can splice some of the Techno-Shaman's Tech absorbsion ability with the Oblitirator Virus so we can give our Pet Tank one hell of a system upgrade...
>>35637120That's not what we chose, that is just an across-the-board upgrade being a Bloodthirster gets us.I think.
>>35637150>BS has only 4Correction, 5 votes. WS was still in the lead at every point during the vote.
>>35637127Yeah, it'll be pretty fucked up when we decide to go full Starscream, eh?
>>35636633>>35636635>>35636656>>35636694>>35636699>>35636729>>35636758>>35636789>>35636885>>35636911for WS>>35636635>>35636705>>35636706>>35636727>>35636885for BSNo idea where ELH got the idea WS lost to BS
>>35637160>>35637150>>35637120>>35637107It IS ELH. Maybe it's just a typo?
>>35637191he's referring to >Okay so I THINK Ag and BS are getting +5 each from you guys.where OP was counting the votes from our choice, where he somehow managed to mistake BS for WS
Re: WS vs BS - I'll recount. If >>35637150 is right I'll switch the 5 points over.>>35637191 is right otherwise. I have to keep the stats slightly sane so it's not a full equalization. For example - you SHOULD have 78 WS and 82 Per. Kinda broken for a quest at this stage.
>>35637191reread his post>Okay so I THINK Ag and BS are getting +5 each from you guys.We got +5 BS from vote and another +5 BS from bloodthirstertotal of +10BSwhich means >>35636935That instead of improving WS from 11% chance to fail to 3% fail chanceWe upgrade BS from 70% fail chance to 49% fail chance.(before any bonuses or penalties of course)
>>35637150Count the combined votes for both AG and BS, we were leaning pretty heavily for it I thought. I for one think it's a good idea to buff up our last resort option. Last couple of threads would have been way easier with a higher BS skill.
>>35636860If the QM is using black crusade, then circumstantial modifiers to BS can get fairly high and allow us to tag about 30 points behind our WS and get the exact same result. Unfortunately, people only see the "11" and always go for WS. So yes, raising BS will make things more interesting and maybe put both on par. >>35636923 Imagining the look on her face is already priceless.
>>35637120It didn't you tit, we got a BS boost bundled with the new form.
>>35637221Nope, we got 21 on BS now on the stat sheet. No idea why.
>>35637221i knew today was a good day to buy the special bullet burbon
>>35637247>we were leaning pretty heavily for it I thought.no wee weren't, look at my count in >>35637208nowhere fucking near
>>35637238aren't we are pretty high tier demon though?It just means we need to go vs toughter opponenets that give bigger and bigger penalties to the skill... rolling WS-40 for example to hurt something REALLY tough.
>>35637251Those are two seperate boosts, read the > Ag and BS are getting +5 each from you guysWe got +10BS overall.>>35637247We really weren't, at no point was BS in the lead.
>>35637251Read ELH's post where he said he thought BS won the vote.Then go and count the votes, where WS nearly doubles BS
>>35637260Back to 16 now. Khorne dammit, is it to much to ask for the ability to hit the broadside of a barn with a bolter?
>>35637247>Last couple of threads would have been way easier with a higher BS skill.only because we chose the BS skill optionswould have been way easier if we went with our strengths
Char gen, it's fun. But at least it's at the end of the thread and main action.I have to think on a proper upgrade for your claws. As it is your armor more or less fused into your body. >>35637276That is an option. I can put you guys at that level and make it so you just have more negative modifiers. Let's put it to a vote>  Leave as is with few negative roll modifiers>  Stat buff and more negative modifiers in the future
>>35637297Yes, we already get it boosted with modifiers like in the fight against the tech shammy where we had +50 to it.Now shut up you got out voted by double.
>>35637297We still wouldn't have with 21.Better to get really outstanding at our specialty before we cover ancillary stuff.
>>35637297when it comes at the cost of either dodging or killing things better in melee, then yes it is too much to ask for.
>>35637336>  Stat buff and more negative modifiers in the future.We are cinder, our stats must be HIGH.
>>35637251Read >>35637068. The voting miscount gave +5 BS and +5 Ag, and those stacked with the Bloodthirster bonuses.
>>35637336> Leave as is with few negative roll modifiers
>>35637336>>  Leave as is with few negative roll modifiersI like things as is less complicated
>>35637336Can you at least end this thing with us escaping the Space Hulk aboard the Obscenity Engine? We have a road trip to get back to.
>>35637336> Stat buff and more negative modifiers in the future is probably better, but this feels more appropriate.
>>35637336>>  Leave as is with few negative roll modifiersWhat we've got is good
>>35637311Won't the quest become a lot more predictable since everyone will obviously flock to the WS and AG options?And what will we do if we run into a situation where we NEED to use BS?Also, it kind of weird to think that a Bloodthirster is better at making friends than she is at firing a pistol
>>35637336So, when we become a Daemon Princess, are we going to transform into a more humanoid form except red and have like a dress made of pure warp constantly flowing from us? Also, how does this effect our "assets"
>>35637336>  Stat buff and more negative modifiers in the futureI like living on the wild side.
>>35637382Yeah that updates coming (along with teasing Iggy about headpats) just have to finish writing between glaring at the stat sheet and wondering if I added things right.
>>35637336>  Leave as is with few negative roll modifiers
>>35637340Khorne daemon shooting worse than an ork is pretty sad. But hey, whatever floats your boat.
>>35637336I see a problem with option 2, and that is that we create too big a gap between ourselves and the other demons in the party if we go that route.
>>35637336 WE GONNA GET BIG.BIG.
>>35637430orks got speshul majiks helping dem wit dakkawe chop gits up roight gud
>>35637405I know man, this so much more ridiculous considering we've already run into such situations. And in the very last thread no less.
>>35636993>mfw everyone ignored my suggestion we answer ignitrix with "blood for the blood god, skulls for the skull throne">>35637412that is adorable.
What say y'all about giving the Blood Ravens permission to keep their gifts for helping us out a little?
>>35637336Too many issues with 2 so I vote>  Leave as is with few negative roll modifiersIt works well and I don't mind not having the highest numbers ever, this works well without crippling other characters or ruining the dynamics and balance of the quest
>>35637434That is the main issue yes. I'd have to go through and do the same for them.Update's almost done.
>>35637336Option one is easier to manage. No need to scale up the numbers and wreck your head with unnecessary math.
>>35637430guns are for pussies, we use our bare hands.
>>35637336As is. Simpler this way, and we'll still be the scariest bitch around no matter what by virtue of brains, friends, and iron will.
>>35637469By our Edict, anything they found on the spacehulk that we haven't claimed as ours, they can keep it without us telling anyone they have it if its super important and heretical to possess?Sure.
>>35637412Yep, voiced by Jennifer Hale, even.
>>35637446we already are big you retard, just making us have larger numbers and hamstringing everything with modifiers does not make us big
>>35637405Those aren't always a option. And people have used other options before too, even though WS and AG had always been our best. Its hardly a terrible thing if a Khornate demon mostly fights enemies in close combat with her claws. And the 21 don't make a relevant difference to 16 to be worth it.
>>35637489The swiss cheese said as it melted on the pavement.
>>35637479Then what's the point?The balance is fine right now so why mess with it for the sake of having a higher number, is that what you want this to be about? Big number syndrome rather than characterization?
>>35637479in that case i am changing my vote to 1.
>>35637469Okay, but just the ones who helped us. We'll take them along in our fleet, if we can.
>>35637557its not about bigger numbersits about being significantly more badass now that we evolved to a higher tier, and as such facing tougher opponents.the bigger negative modifiers is because we are fighting tougher things, not as a balancing mechanic to our numbers
>>35637581It is more work though. I'm happy as is.
>>35637581As long as he includes text about us WADING through scores of enemies that were threatening to us before our evolution I'm fine with it.Like when we rolled over those Spess Muhreens to get at the Grey Knights on the planet we got Iggy from.
>>35637581>its about being significantly more badass now that we evolved to a higher tier, and as such facing tougher opponents.Then why care about the numbers at all?Because that's exactly what we're doing in story wise, without even needing numbers.You don't make sense at all.l
>>35637631>Because that's exactly what we're doing in story wise, without even needing numbers.Because not everyone is assuming that this is what is going to happen?
>>35637663Wut?Are they not reading the actual quest then?
>>35636923<Well,> you begin. <I learned the value of headpats. They’re really nice and I should give you more of them.> Even your “inner voice” is different. It has more power behind it, more force. But somehow it’s also more demure. If you had to qualify it, it’s the equivalent of a tiger roaring and chuffing and the same time. Not that your old voice was puny but this feels more appropriate for a daemon of your standing.<I uh… oh.> You get a mental image of the Lady of Change blushing. <So you had another visit with HIM then. Congradulations.>The Obscenity Engine rocks as it swerves out of the way of a few torpedos. Right, that whole space battle is still going on…<Do you need help up there?><Hmph. No it’s fine. I’ll just fly the ship, calculate vectors on every projectile coming towards us, and determine optimal firing patterns all without computer aid.><So you’re fine then?> you tease.<YES I NEED HELP YOU BIG STUPID RED THING> she yells as the ship shudders again.<I’ll be right up~>You wave for the Zoanthrope to follow you and begin walking towards the lift you came in on. After seeing that it was completely destroyed by the Shaman’s first cannon blast you turn around and head across the shuttlebay to another. Along the way you chat with the Tyranid.“So… do you have a name?” It seems like a prudent question. You can’t just keep calling it/her Zoanthrope. “Ssssytili,” she hisses. Now that you have time to look at her she doesn’t remind you of any of the mental images of Tyranids that you naturally posses. Her serpentine form seems more jagged than it should, and the colors seem off. Not in a “this should be red instead of blue” fashion (though you’d totally approve such a change) but a “that’s an odd combination for a Tyranid” way. If you had to guess? She’s heard the whispers of Chaos for awhile now. You were just the final push that will eventually see her leading a swarm of corrupted bioforms.(cont)
>>35637794“Sytili then. Good. You and your flock will be staying aboard this ship for now. Less hassle that way. Pick a few decks and make yourself at home. While you’re at it, ensure we no longer have Rak’gol aboard.”Your force of presence alone has her bowing her head in acceptance. “Assss you wisssh…”From there it’s a short trip to the bridge where Ignitrix and Acerea are waiting. Your feathered friend simply barks at you to take control of the main cannons before returning to the twenty holoscreens in front of her.After the Shaman? This would be child’s play...> Housekeeping next post (OHGODWHY)
>>35637821...So that happened.I think the sheet's right now. Feels okay looking at it but some values may be subject to change (I'm glaring at wounds right now). We'll pick up next session with you dealing with the aftermath of the space battle. It'll be almost entirely diplomancy and the like just like thread #8. Q&A as usual. No Cinder did not gain 4th wall powers from her advancement.
>>35637821maybe we should fly while she shoots.
>>35637879Thanks for the thread, boss. Its fun.
>>35637879Thanks for the thread ELH, was awesome.Fuck yeah daddy Khorne gave us headpats
>>35637879In what way was Sytili corrupted by the warp?
thanks for thread. good night notELH
>>35637879Was fun, dude. Thanks!
>>35637919Self Identification and Independence. Pretty radical for a hivemind species.
>>35637950I mean by what kind of Chaos?
I was hoping she didn't already have a name, so we could call her Zoey.
>>35637956the corrupting kind?
>>35637919It's something I'm still nailing down in my head and with art stuff. Consider her more a black sheep of the species as >>35637950 has said. The rest you'll find out next thread.>>35637956Just general stuff. No specific god or alignment. I imagine she'll be glowing red in due time.>>35637967Nickname her anyways.
>>35637956I believe khorn because khorn explicitly congratulated us on corrupting herShe was taking direct orders and bowing before a khornish demon while on the cusp of corruption. therefore it stands to reason she was corrupted by that sourceremember that our mere presence radiates corruption and overwrites the minds of mortals with KHORN KHORN KHORN KHORN
>>35637983no nickname, we say her full namewe lisp the sssss part too
Is it me or Acerea is receiving a bit less screentime as of late?Also Plaguette "Oneshot" Quest when?
>>35638046She retreated from the limelight to mourn the loss of Vern the Fern.We also have astoundingly huge ships.
>>35638046Her character page isn't even completely filled out
>>35638074This will not stand!We can't have our Ara Ara being incomplete!
>>35638046I've been prodding a certain someone to try and include her more. She has some shadows to step out from (including mine) but hopefully she'll be back in the limelight soon. If not, more headpats for me. Just as planned
>>35638046It's either Plaguebearer or Nurglette.
>on AcereaHave we even headpatted her? As in, ever? She certainly deserves a few.
>>35638046This Anon >>35638102 is right.Plaguette sounds like French baked goods.
>>35638122Nah, let's just grope her breasts a little.
>>35638074It's more a thing that she hasn't had things to track like Iggy and Cinder. I imagine her oneshot might change that but you never know.I'm debating having it be another in media res thing after KQ #14. Something where she'll get her first advancement and maybe bond a little with Sytili. No not that kind of bonding. Though she is a Nurgelette and Tyranids are Tyranids. Fade to black maybe.
Is it even possible to snuggle her without getting horribly ill?
>>35638180don't forget the gardeningand hopefully she took a clipping of Vern to carry on his legacy
>>35638187Yes, just be a daemon of khorne and have a high resistance against warp fuckery
>>35638136>French baked goodsIt's the -ette, I swear.But after all these shenanigans she's still a Lesser daemon, while we advanced all the way to Greater and Igni started the quest as one.How long until she levels up?
>>35638187Yup, cuz our blood is stronk.
>>35638240ELH said the next promotion is a little behind ours. So it's probably in her oneshot, unless something happens in it that causes the party to all die the death.
>>35638180so, what do our best buddies have to do to satisfy their patrons and get an evolution?
>>35638386Y'know, Nurglite and Tzeentchean things.
>>35638386to clarifyi know our job is to kill tough opponentsbut what is theirs?I think the nerglette needs to infest whole planets with diseases, but is that the only thing?And tzeentche... i don't even know what the fuck he wants
>>35638386I'm sure all Acerea has to do is grow an awesome flower.Me? I have to literally take over the big chair from a certain someone. It isn't happening for a long time.No I'm not bitter from multitasking.
>>35638461I believe he wants everyone to stick to the plan
>>35638461He wants about tree fiddy from the Emprah
>>35638491How hardcore do you want Cinder's headpats to be now that you know she's going to dispense them more often?Are you a lewdbird?
>>35638522Just give Tzeentch a dollar.
I just noticed that our warp chains are based on BS
>>35638522I don't get it
>>35638526I'm onto you Slaanesh.
>>35638491I thought Tzeentcheans got off on multi-tasking and complicated shit.
Someone should really catch the 1d4chan page up. It's really outta date.>>35638682They do but Iggy's tsuntsun 90% of the time
Did Khorne just do Iggy a solid by giving Cinder a greater understanding of the joys of the 'headpat'?
>>35638971Just as planned.> mfw we've been playing a Lady of Change quest all along
Zoan head pats when?
>>35639144Her brain is exposed. Wouldn't that hurt?
>>35639033>mfw we've been playing a Lady of Change quest all alongjust as planned
>>35639230I... missed that. Hurm.
>>35639230Brains don't have nerve endings, she'll be fine. Just aim for the bit that controls fluffy warm feelings.
>>35639230If her brain is exposed, it must be made of far tougher stuff than the usual sort.
>>35639433this right here.otherwise a bit of acceleration and it would splat against a wall.
