Somewhere on the edge of a black hole, near the Grangold system, a battle was waged. On one side lay an entire Rak’gol fleet, comprised of a hellish mixture of Marauders, Butchers, and Manglers. Somehow they had concealed their presence amid the Hulk and the general Warp phenomena surrounding the Obscenity Engine. Even more impressive, the assemblage of primitive, haphazardly-assembled ships of war outnumbered their opponents ten to one. Said opponents were a single Blood Raven Battle Barge, the Slayer of Raptor, the Faithful Inferno, and the Obscenity Engine itself. In other words: the Rak’gol stood no chance.Now the remains of their vessels drift in space, torn apart largely by Volkite Macrocannons, Electromagnetic Railguns, and Graviton Torpedos from the Engine. The wreckage adds to that of the Space Hulk which is currently in the process of being eviscerated into oblivion by the black hole. Salvage crews from all four ships are already working around the clock, leaving you to deal with the aftermath of having claimed a new Flagship.There’s a lot to do before getting underway again. Between setting up your new suite, checking in on the girls, exploring the Engine, and playing Admiral/Inquisitor. you’re sure to be busy. So much for trying out that sleep thing again. Good thing daemons don’t need it.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 after responding to a bit of feedback from last week and some housekeeping. 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
In no particular order, here’s some generalized responses from those that’ve been submitted to the G-Doc and via email:> I get that the Rak’Gol were epic and all, but was it really time for the Bloodthirster upgrade? I kinda would have liked to see more arcs first.This is a fair point. It was one of those things where the timing just seemed right: A sufficiently epic battle (complete with backdrop) that coincided with obtaining a very important and powerful relic. Also I hadn’t really handed out infamy for awhile so it was kinda stacking up. That said, the next upgrade (Daemon Princess @ 90) will be a long time coming (10+ threads unless I need to speed things up). Speaking of, the quest “ends” at 120 infamy. You’ll start to understand why after a conversation with Ignitrix this session.> Will other characters besides the daemon trio have oneshots or sessions run from their POV?To be honest that’s largely up to you all. The big two (Ignitrix and Acerea) definitely have “priority” simply because I can move the story along while they’re in control. That said, if people like Sytili or really want to see Commissar Tigurius silently executing people, it can happen. We’ll talk more about it at the end of the session.> Thanks for running. It’s a lot of fun!I don’t usually respond to this sort of thing (feels like gloating tbh) but thanks. Encouragement is always great.~~~Small bit of general housekeeping:The changes to Cinder’s sheet are complete. Note the fact your Daemon-fusion armor grants a rating-20 forcefield and that your warp chains now test at BS+25Acerea’s sheet has been “finalized” in preparation for her oneshot.If anyone knows a good program/site that will mimic FFG’s stat block formatting, lemme know. I’d like to give you all BC-compatible stats for the main three.Onto the actual content!

“...There. That should do it.”Ignitrix wipes her forehead with one of her taloned hands and steps back from the reinstalled AI core. Immediately following the destruction of the last Rak’gol vessel she beelined here with you in tow. She’s been working nonstop for the past couple of hours on it, giving you time to get a handle on your new body. “So no more homicidal AI then?” you ask as you continue to flow through a rigorous training form consisting of mock blows and dodges. “No more homicidal AI,” confirms Ignitrix. “I’ve limited its functions to the bare essentials just in case though. It’s more a glorified computer than an actual free-thinking entity now. Anyways…”She turns to face the holomap just as it winks into existence. “Your new quarters are here.” A room just below the main bridge illuminates. “I’ll be taking the one across the way and fashioning something in a corner of the Drone Bay. Acerea’s probably going to stick with her Tyranid friends if I had to guess. They’re already spreading out across decks eleven and twelve.”“I see…” You stare at the map and watch as little red lights wink in and out of existence both inside and outside the Engine. What few Rak’gol remained alive were slowly being executed by Sytili’s swarm and the anti-boarding defences.You imagine the rest of your “fleet” is dealing with similar situations, albeit on a smaller scale. “That’s all I have really. Now unless you have a pressing need to gloat about your patron handing out headpats, I’m going to go relax.” The feathered daemon sounds exhausted more than anything else. Your keen ears pick up a small bit of jealously and curiosity as well, though muted. There hasn’t really been time to give her the details of what transpired with the Shaman and with Khorne given how focused she’s been on her work. >  You’ll catch up with her later. Probably after you get a bloodbath in your new suite.>  Follow her out and keep the conversation going.>  Write in

Headpats and tagging along it is. Writing...>>35713357My notes show three.
>>35713402>My notes show three.
>>35713262Before Ignitrix can get more than two steps towards the door, you intercept her. “What are you…” she says in alarm as your hand extends. Her face goes crimson when she realizes you’re giving her a headpat.“I don’t think I say thank you enough. So thanks, Iggy.” Who says Khornates don’t have empathy? Well the Imperium, Nercon, Tau, and Eldar might but fuck them.“Mmrphm… Are you going to follow me around all day then?” The tiredness is still there but she’s definitely perked up a bit.You retract your hand and shrug. “Well I need you to at least help me with my suite. I am not Lazerus or you. My first attempt at a bloodbath was little more than welded metal and a freshly squeezed corpse.”“Ah. Well come along then. Might as well walk and talk.” She makes for the door again but this time you merely follow in her wake. You’d walk beside her if you weren’t so large and the corridors so small. As it is you have only a few feet of play in the most narrow of them. Something Ignitrix is keen on pointing out. “So it’s not all great being large and in charge, is it?”>  Management SUCKS.

I don't know whether to chalk this up to /tg/ being /tg/ or Cinder being literally the greatest tsun-troller out there.
>>35713606Which do you think?
>>35713548> No issues here. How’s been a shortstack working out for you?
>>35713548 fits Cinder best, I think. Possibly add headpat.
>>35713548A laugh escapes your lips. “It’s pretty great actually. Better than being a small acolyte like you.”“I…” Her feathers reflexively try to stand on end before she catches on. “I don’t know why I asked. I knew you’d say that but I asked anyways. I must be losing my touch…”She shakes her head and rubs her eyes carefully as the pair of you step into a lift. You nudge her a little before replying. “Nah, you planned all this right? Something about it leading to more headpats?”“...Sure. Let’s go with that. Because I don’t really have the energy right now to argue otherwise.”“Just as planned,” you tease.“I hate you,” she responds.“No you don’t.”“Hmph.”Several minutes of silence pass before you try redirecting the conversation.>  Ask about her Imperium days>  Ask about her encounter with her patron>  Ask what you have to look forward to when you get to your suite>  Write in

>>35713765 Ask her if there's anything she wants to do. What do Tzeenchans do for fun? Do...they even know what fun is? Speaking of which, what happened with... the big bird?
>>35713765“I’ve been wondering, Iggy, you’ve met with Tzeentch himself before, right?” you ask, not really sure how to begin about your own encounter.“Yes…why?”“I was just trying to see what yours was like in comparison to mine. It was definitely different from what I expected.” You scratch the back of your head, remembering the headpat tendered to you.The lift comes to a stop and the doors open. As you filter out behind Ignitrix, she sighs once more. “I don’t really know how much I should tell you but it’s been one of those days. Not like I’m telling you my true name or anything. I suppose mine was odd as well. He wasn’t on his throne or in the form I expected.”“I’d say an actual face to face meeting is pretty odd, yeah. Which is why I guess I’m not entirely sure how to respond to it myself.”She turns around and continues to walk backwards while still talking to you. “So it wasn’t like your first meeting at the base of the Skull Throne then?”You shake your head. “Not at all. It felt more like he’d pulled me aside for a quick fireside chat than anything else.”“Hrm…” Ignitrix rubs her chin in thought. “Out of curiosity, how would you describe his form?”>  Literally the best thing ever (Fel to not Fangirl squeal)>  Much as you’d expect, just smaller.

>>35714359Jesus, this post only gets through now? Talk about a bad connection.
>>35714141“Everything you could ever want from a warrior: Imposing size, armor covered in blood of his enemies, a massive swor-”“Focus, Cinder.”You shake your head and clear your thoughts. “Right, sorry. He was his ‘usual’ self but only about twice my size. He should have been impossibly large though. When he was on the throne he was larger than the Warp itself. Or that’s how it felt.”Ignitrix’s eyes narrow and she comes to a stop. “Okay hold on a second. I need to do something.” Her brow furrows as she waves her hands in a complex pattern. A second later your connection to the Warp is entirely cut off, like you’re literally hugging Tigurius.Reflexively you snarl, “What did you-”“Hush. We can’t have THEM hearing. Of course they might like that but I have my reasons. I don’t like it anymore than you and I used to be mortal.”So it’s just a temporary, localized block of the Warp then. You figured she’d be able to do something like that but it doesn’t make you anymore pleased she did so without warning. “What’s so important to keep from prying ears then?”“Look,” she presses a talon against her chest for emphasis. “My meeting was basically Tzeentch telling me I’m next in succession. Or that’s the conclusion I’ve come to after all this time. Maybe it’s all apart of his grand plan but the usual signs of it are missing. My point is that MAYBE you’re dealing with the beginnings of something similar.”>  Nah that can’t be right.

>>35714552I can't possibly fathom either being CHOSEN as next in succession... rather then being chosen as a CANDIDATE.I bet she is going to have to outsmart all the other candidates, while we have to kill all the other candidates.I am also assuming succession means for "right hand" rank rather than actually replacing them (because that would be nuts)

>>35714666>because that would be nutsWelcome to Khornette Quest. Hell it's right there in the name. I'ma call this shit now - the quest ends with Iggy becoming the new Tzeentch, Cinder the new Khorne, and Acerea conquering Terra with Vern reborn.

>>35714552>  What heresy, let's take this bitch's skull!
>>35714715I am pretty sure all daemons are the sons/daughters of the chaos gods.
>>35714715Well, Cinder's most likely a bloodbride, Ignitrix is an elevated psyker, and Acerea might be a mixture of rot and eldar tears.
We need to hang out with the 'Nids to get them all BRASS NIDS instead of ROT NIDS.Also: Converting Sheila into a proper daemon engine.
>>35714807What about brass rot?
>>35714807Why not all?Have the Zoan go Tzeetch, Genestealers go Khorne and Gaunts go Nurgle. That way we get the best of four worlds...
>>35714807I'd rather have Rot Nids.Nurgle and Nids go well together.
>>35714732>Cinder's most likely a bloodbrideAren't bloodbrides a actual kind of demons on their own?
Ah... Thursday again.>>35714552>3>>35714807This. I wouldn't mind gaining Rot 'Nids later, but Sytili and her brood fodda go brass'd.
>>35714862gotta go brass'd. No idea what the fuck happened there.
>>35714862>>35714807But the Nids don't like Cinder 'cuz she yells a lot and looks scary. Acerea would have a better chance turning them into Rot Nids.
>>35714552A myriad of thoughts and responses flurry through your mind. Unable to focus on one, you remain silent. Ignitrix takes your concerned stare as a sign to continue. “I know, it’s absurd. Why us? Why would THEY of all beings care about something so mortal as heirs or replacements? I mean… not to gloat, but in my case it sort of made sense. I’m the only one to defeat his maze after all. You though? It could be that he’s got a series of champions in mind. Perhaps this is his way of saying ‘Welcome to the Tournament’ or something.”“Mrm. Had I simply been given the chance to present the skulls I’ve taken… It’s strange. Damned strange. He doesn’t just ‘meet’ with his daemons to raise them up. It’s supposed to just ‘happen.’ Yet this conspiracy you have in mind?” You fold your arms across your chest. “It’s more likely he’s trying to select some daemon worthy of being his next champion.”“And that might very well be the case. But I wouldn’t write off what I said so easily. If I know Khorne half as well as I do the Lord of Change… Well, just think about it. I’m sure you’re thrilled to know others are coming for your head at least.”“Oh most definitely. Now can you get rid of this?” You motion around at the air around you. “Of course. Sorry for springing it on you.” She genuinely seems apologetic about it. The null field collapses with a flick of her wrist and leaves you no worse for the wear. “Now then, we’re almost to our new suites.

>>35714910Your limited knowledge of the Imperium leaves you at somewhat of a loss. “STC… STC… you mean those computers capable of making whatever you wanted?”Ignitrix smiles and tilts her head slightly to the right. “Indeed. A Standard Template Construct was basically a large database of technological wonders for colonists back in the Dark Age of Technology. The Engine here is equipped with a limited Constructor. Combined with the newly rewritten AI it should be able to come up with plans that would make Lazerus jealous.”“Huh. How do I work it though?”“Oh it’s all voice activated. Come on, I’ll show you.” She waves you towards her suite. The doors open before her to reveal a completely barren room contained by four metal walls. Turning, her wings flare impressively. “Now pay attention.” The Lady of Change coughs and speaks aloud to the room. “Computer?”“YES, MADAM IGNITRIX?” A androgynous voice of the same inflection as Shiela speaks from somewhere in the ceiling. Madam Ignitrix though? Cute.“I’d like you to furnish this room with four chairs, a table, and a cabinet. Use oak and keep the style appropriate to that of a meeting room.”Even with that vague description, the room begins to spring to life. Seemingly out of the floor itself rises a collection of furniture matching her specifications. In all, the room goes from a grey wasteland to an ornate-looking conference room. “See? Just that easy,” says Ignitrix. She practically floats over to a chair before collapsing into it. “The more specific you are the more complex the pattern it makes will be. Any material you want will be matched as closely as possible so long as it’s not impossible.”“Will it call me Mistress or is that something only you…”“Computer, I need a pillow. Preferably aerodynamic.”>  Okay, I think I’ve got it. Thanks Iggy>  Psh… it’s a pillow. (Ag)>  Write in

I’ll leave you alone,” you needle. “I’m keeping the pillow though.”“It’s not like I can’t make twenty more…”“Fair enough. I’ll check on you later once you’ve had some ‘beauty sleep.’ Khorne knows you need it.”“COMPUTER…!”You backstep out of the room just in time. Nine impacts thunder against the door as it closes, metal in design. You suppose that’s enough teasing her for now anyways. Besides, you have many other things to deal with today that aren’t Ignitrix. As you consider where to begin you wander into your suite, picking up the pillow along the way. Like how Ignitrix’s room started, it’s void of any decoration or accoutrements. You could always decorate now but there is the matter of the Tyranids and Acerea.

>>35716422Space Marines are notoriously independent, and the Blood Ravens more-so than most.Remember, this thing also has warp fuckery in it, and you want to bring it to one of the bastions of humanity? Where it can corrupt Mars? Hell, we can even play off that, as we're trying to keep it safe from the notoriously reckless admechs. Oh, but there is still some value to it. Look at these items we found! They make you stronger/faster, and are just barely not heretical. Inquisitor's guarantee!
So what, so we tell them we have reported it to the proper authorities of the imperium and that they are to keep it secret?
Alright so about those Ravens...>  Continue the long con (Fel)>  Haha! Daemon wildcard! (S)To clarify  - You basically tell them they've been working for a daemon and attempt to either get them to off themselves or come to your side.  is the subtle version that doesn't probably lead to more space pew pew.

>>35716614We're the Inquisition. We ARE the "Proper Authorities".Also, notoriously secretive. We should probably go fuck up some Chaos war-band as well, to help test the gifts we're going to give them just to make sure they aren't heretical.

>>35717049Iggy's behind a closed door. And literally fell asleep in the chair you left her in
>>35717090Obviously we should go pick her up, and then tuck her in.
>>35716275The Blood Ravens are probably your most pressing concern. It’s only logical that you deal with them before they become a bigger thorn in your side than they already are. You can only imagine what sort of conversations are going on aboard their Battle Barge, especially given the fact they just witnessed the power of a Dark Age of Technology ship firsthand. The only reason you got them to leave you alone after the battle was because you invoked your rosette and told them you’d contact them. So far they’ve listened but you’re about 85% sure that’s because they’re currently looting a majority of the salvage outside.Clearing your throat, you test your voice. Good thing too. A click of the vox earlier would have seen you unleashing a voice unmistakably daemonic at them. You shake your head and open the comm. The Chaplain from earlier answers.“Ah Madam Inquisitor. We have been waiting eagerly for your call. We have combed the Codex Astartes, our own Mandate, and what materials we have on the Inquisition. All three sources are quite clear: We must bring a delegation aboard at once to secure and cleanse the ship of whatever Warp taint exists. From there we must…”“You must shut up and listen,” you state, shutting him up. “That ‘Warp Taint’ is precisely what I’ve been dealing with all this time. I will not have men in red power armor traipsing about thinking they know better than someone from the Ordo Malleus and interfering with my work.”“But Madam Inquisitor, even your own Ordo’s rules clearly state…”“Why in the ever loving hell do you have access to that anyways?”He doesn’t answer your question. Instead he sidesteps it with ease, “I repeat, do we have permission to come aboard with a purification team?”>  No. And if you have access to those rules you know what happens if I have to invoke the Rosette again. (S)>  No. <Insert explanation here>>  Sure come aboard. No psykers though. Unless you want their heads to explode.>  Write in

>>35717320>  Sure come aboard. No psykers though. Unless you want their heads to explode.There's nothing heretical here (except us!) We can even prep some stuff for them to "borrow" and pretend not to notice!Delay for time though so Iggy can get back on her feet.
>>35717320>3 sure, come aboardGet ready, everyone!And if we have to kill them, we can just say daemons did it. It won't even be lying.
>>35717320>  No. And if you have access to those rules you know what happens if I have to invoke the Rosette again. (S)Fuck them lets keep cover
>>35717320Do we still have some of that Grey Knight equipment lying around? If we do, we could say that we already HAVE Anti-Demon Marines combing the vessel...
>>35717320>  No. The truth is, I wanted to purify it myself without having to rely on you, Mr. Space Marine Chaplain. Because you inspire me to be a better me.
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>35717408>There's nothing heretical here (except us!)and the other two demons. and the chaos nidsand how do you expect them to react when they meet you in person?
>>35717320> No.And let's talk more about how it is that you have a copy of my inquisitions rules? There have been . . . disturbing rumors about some of the activities of your chapter, you know.
>>35717589Let's act embarassed about not being able to clear out the tyranids on our own, and have Ssssytili move to a ssssecure location with some gaunts while some of them get taken out by the Space Marines.
>>35717589Either they won't notice ( http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Orkhammer ) or we kill them and tell their bosses that daemons killed them, but we've had our Grey Knights deal with it and we're shipping the bodies back for geneseed retrieval.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>35717699oh hey>Kill them>Yell at the survivors for incompetence>Say you will have your men clear it instead>Send back bodies for geneseedproblem is... that we are trying to AVOID killing the mapies so we can corrupt them.this is the exact opposite of achieving our goal
>>35717320You growl in annoyance before answering. Your luck could only be pushed so far and your words only disarm so many foes. Plus with Ignitrix probably out cold in her room, you’re down a pilot. “Fine. You may send TWO squads over. Ensure they do not have psykers among their ranks. If I have to execute another daemonhost-to-be YOU will share their fate.”“This is highly irregular. However given the pervasiveness of the corruption it may be for the best. I believe I speak for all here in that we would prefer not to lose such a valuable vessel to Chaos.”You snort off-mic. If only they knew. “Speaking of Chaos, we will be discussing why you have knowledge of things you shouldn’t. Especially given your Chapter’s past transgressions.”Again he avoids your comment. The bastard. “Shuttles enroute. Should they expect you to greet them personally?”>  Yes (Lie)>  Yes (Go slay some Marines)>  No, you will be meeting <insert name here>>  No, I will direct you via the ship’s comms once aboard>  Write in>>35717734Way to get that 100 out of the way.
>>35717734Oh hey, überFAIL!
>>35717699So, we took a lot of grey knight skulls, right? Is there any way we can rez them as Khornate champions to cover our ass?
>>35717747>  No, you will be meeting Shirleen
>>35717747>  No, I will direct you via the ship’s comms once aboardI'm still working on things that I do not want to get messed up, and your men would prove a distraction if they were physically there.
>>35717747>  No, you will be meeting my Hospitaller, Acerea Ishnur. She will escort your men.
Rolled 17 (1d100)>>35717734so corrupt the geneseed.
>>35717734What does it matter if a few die? Wouldn't returning the geneseed earn some goodwill?
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>35717846will they notice?
>>35717857We can also get Acerea to infect the geneseed for the lulz.
>>35717857The point is that we are trying to corrupt them into chaos marines and if we kill them, we can't corrupt them.
>>35717747Comms room, they can discover the nids for us, and then die
>>35717909Having the regenerative Acerea lead them there will make the space marines dying less suspicious if our aide dies as well.
So they'll meet Acerea and maybe get some pointers via the comms. Writing...
>>35718004Tell her to put some clothes on.
>>35718070I thought the tank was called Sheila?
>>35717747“You’ll be meeting one of my aides, Acerea. If need be she knows how to interface with me via the ships comms.”You kill the line before he can get another word in. Either he’s deliberately pushing your buttons or he’s volunteering to be the first Marine thrown out of an airlock sans head. Regardless, you need to talk to Acerea. There’s just one problem: you have her microbead. “Khorne damn it,” you mutter as you look around your still-barren room. As your eyes drift to the ceiling, you get an idea. “Computer… can you facilitate a comm link between myself and Acerea?”“CERTAINLY, HIGH MISTRESS CINDER. ONE MOMENT.” You start to feel a little bad about ribbing Ignitrix earlier. She clearly thought ahead. That or the AI’s remarkably fast at picking up cues. A low beep is followed by Acerea’s voice filling the room. “Well hello, Cinder. What can I do for you~?” “There’s about to be a delegation of Blood Ravens in Shuttlebay one. I need you to go down there and see to it they ‘accidentally’ end up killed. Use the Tyranids or the servitors or whatever you want. Hell use Shiela if you’d like. The point being we have to sell the fact this ship is highly dangerous and that they’re not prepared to deal with it.”“My, someone’s fond of keeping up appearances. I can easily do that. I assume you’d like me to look a little more human though?”“If you can, yes. Iggy’s asleep and I’d rather not have to wake her up.”“Awww, how cute. But yes, I can change my appearance enough that, with a cloak or proper covering, they’ll mistake me for human. I’ll talk to Sytili here and come up with a plan.”“Thanks, Acerea. By the way, try asking the computer for a microbead or something. It might be able to make you one even down… wherever you are.”“I’ll do just that. Talk to you in a bit, sweetie.”(Cont, fuck the char limit)
>>35718320Well that’s one problem temporarily handled. You probably have about 20-30 minutes before the shuttles arrive.>  Decorating time!>  Head down to help Acerea and Sytili out>  Vox Proditus>  Shudder and dial the Rogue Trader>  Write in
>>35718346>>  Head down to help Acerea and Sytili outLet's see if we can get one to become our first Chaos Space Marine by injecting thoughts of endless loot
>>35718346>>  Vox Proditus>  Head down to help Acerea and Sytili out
>>35718346 because I'm curious. What does the rogue trader have to offer us again?
>>35718394He had a pretty baller ship that outgunned ours by a fair margin.Which is to say, at this point, comic relief and little else.
>>35718394Before this adventure he had the biggest ship on the block. Now I'm not so sure. He knows that we're daemons but is also a flirty piece of shit. Granted he told a GK to suck it so...
>>35718394The stuff Rogue Traders usually have... Imperial and Xeno weapons, exotic foods, information....Also, could we slowly bleed the Magpies forces and take their ship (along with all it's 'gifts') get a squad or two at a time, kill and/or capture then get another one sent over...
>>35718394also, just curious, do we have the plans for a warp tap in the STC?
>>35717898see>>35717846>>35718346this: >>35718375Let's bring Sheila if Acerea doesn't and have her welcome them before Acerea closes to talk or engage.
>>35718346>  Shudder and dial the Rogue TraderDon't want that problem to escalate untreated
Calling up New-Horns it is then. Writing...
>>35718481>Assuming they won't notice corrupted geneseeds
>>35718588Depends how obvious the corruption is. Astartes don't scrutinize their own geneseed all that much unless they already know there's a problem; that's what their tithe is for.
>>35718689there is something i don't get.each marine only ever produces 1 geneseed. and costs 1 geneseed to produce.Does this not mean that you will run out of geneseeds as long as there is a lower than 100% recovery rate?
>>35718766each marine produces 2, 1 which gets removed around the 5 year mark, and one that gets removed on death.
>>35718766>each marine only ever produces 1 geneseedWrong, they produce two. The second, however, takes time to mature and thus cannot be harvested from scouts or newly-minted marines.
>>35718562Hey, don't call him New-Horns, he may be a shit brass herald, but he's our brass herald.
>>35718346Proditus might be relatively useless these days but he is your main line of communication to the Raptor. Might as well bring him up to speed and handle matters over there best you can.A quick pulse of your microbead has his quivering voice on the channel in short order. “Y-yes? What can I do for you, Mistress?”“How are things over there? Any Rak’gol get aboard?”“Not as far as we know…”“Good, keep it that way. And the Salvage Crews? Will Lazerus and Wormbag have enough raw materials to keep them busy for awhile?”He hiccups twice. “M-Maybe. The Blood Ravens are terrifyingly efficient at it. We’ll be lucky to get perhaps twenty percent of what’s there.”“For the love of… I expect twenty-five percent or I’ll return to deal with you myself.”“You’re not coming back?”“No. I see little reason to visit the Raptor short of visiting Lazerus or Wormbag. Both of which will manage fine without me and know how to reach me should my attention be required.”“O-oh… Well who do you want actually running things over here then? We need someone in charge…”>  Promote Tigurius. It would have been his ship anyways via succession.>  Put Lazerus in charge. Maybe you’ll get a Xenos Lab out of it.>  Wormbag’s a dick but he’ll turn that place into a proper mobile forge.>  Write in
>>35718841>>  Wormbag’s a dick but he’ll turn that place into a proper mobile forge.Yeah, Mr. Silent will be *great* for captaining at ship via typing on his slate.
>>35718841>  Promote Tigurius. It would have been his ship anyways via succession
>>35718841>  It's up to you, buddy. Don't fuck up!
>>35718841> Promote Tigurius. It would have been his ship anyways via succession.He's probably the most competent one on that ship
>>35718841>  Wormbag’s a dick but he’ll turn that place into a proper mobile forge.There's no way this will turn out badly.
>>35718841> Promote Tigurius. It would have been his ship anyways via succession.
>>35718841>  Promote Tigurius. It would have been his ship anyways via succession.Give Acerea's Gardens to Lazerus and Some other area of the Ship to Wormbag. Should let them expand their operations while leaving the ship under the command of a total puppet...
>>35718841>Promote Tigurius to Captain, with Proditus as his lieutenantWe want that Xenos lab, but we want the techie tech-ing, not stuck in management

>>35718841Changing >>35718892 to>>  Wormbag’s a dick but he’ll turn that place into a proper mobile forge.
>>35718941You're Cinder and Proditus is a tool. Do whatever you want.That said, 's barely winning atm.
>>35718893No, so far he has proven to be INcompetent. He couldn't evil kill 50 combatants in that arena, and he got hospitalized.
>>35718841>1None of these are really great options, but he can probably lead best.
>>35718941Terrible idea. The moment you do something like that the crew starts second-guessing every order to make sure they're not accidently disobeying the other boss.
>>35718980Blanks can't lead for shit, though.
>>35718973He REFUSED to kill a 50th out of distain for their weakness, not for lack of ability.
>>35718995He's a Commissar, they don't need to like him, just FEAR him.
>>357189673! wormbagBlanks are bad as faces
>>35718973He could. He just was only fighting the less-sucky among them.Hospitalized against Grey Knights. It's amazing he's alive.We gonna have this argument every time he gets brought up? Because I'm long since sick of it.
>>35719004LACK. OF. RESULTS.
>>35719009ND says commissar large and in charge! Who's with her?>not me
>>35719009People can't even fear blanks because they are non-entities. It's sorta like Emmet in the Lego Movie, how all his coworkers didn't even know he existed.
>>35718995Blanks repulse those who are in close contact with them. The captain is almost never in any close contact with the crew. He just needs to cherrypick a bridge crew who can suck it up and work through the aura, which is quite possible.
>>35719030I am. Just because an idea is supported by that thing doesn't automatically make the idea bad.
>>35718841Wormbag, with tigurius as head enforcer
What about the no talking thing? He can't even bark out orders properly.
>>35719021Guess the difference between 49 worthless skulls, and 50 worthless skulls.Hint; it's NOTHING! But at least the former case avoids having a bunch of twits make a big deal out of it and slinging around insulting unearned honors.
>>35719073This seems like a good compromise
>>35719089Exactly, he can't screw shit up in translation, so he will just GLARE the crew into doing what we want!
>>35719089He'll get over it. Or we can have Lazarus stick a speaker to him.
>>35718841>  Wormbag’s a dick but he’ll turn that place into a proper mobile forge.It's like you guys don't even want epic gear
>>35718841ok, can you jog my memorieis it>1 - blank>2 - heretic tech priest>3 - demon who created usIf so than>1 - no, blank>2 - tech priest is best ship captain>3 - demon forge would be fucking awesome... but I doubt he will be subtle
>>35718841>>  Promote Tigurius. It would have been his ship anyways via succession.
>>35719089We can commemorate his promotion by having Wormbag and Protitus team up to build him a bitchin custom demonic vox implant.
>>35719115can/should we bring our bio/tech people over to the engine?
>>35719149Could a demonically possessed vox implant work in him?
>>35719157Nah, let's let our fleet specialize a little instead of trying to squeeze everything into one boat.
>>35719115>>35719157We should, if only to keep an eye on them...Putting the Mortal in charge of the other ship means, if need be, you can just kill and replace the mortal...If we give Wormbag too much power, he'll probably double cross us.
>>35719157that is actually a decent ideatransfer the tech priests over to our new flagship. while wormbag turns the old one into a furnace.OR, we still have that rogue trader and his ship, yes?why not we finish properly corrupting it and load that up with the tech priest?
>>35719149It's not that Commissar Tiger Can't Talk, it's that he Won't Talk... Its a psychological condition that until he completes a self set goal, he refuses to speak...
>>35719176probably not, the medical bay on the engine might be able to fix him up give him superpowers
>>35719176I doubt it, but that's no reason not to melt some brass in hellfire and use it to braze everything metal that he owns, starting with his chainsword - one adamantium tooth at a time.
>>35718841You weigh your potential options. The longer you consider it, the more you realize it’s best for Lazerus and Wormbag to remain out of management. It’d hinder their work. “Tell Tigurius he’s in charge. But he doesn’t get my old suite. That’s staying as is for when I decide to visit.”“Are you sure that’s wis-”“ARE YOU QUESTIONING ME PRODITUS?” you shout, channeling some of your frustration surrounding the Raven problem at him. Unfair perhaps, but that’s his problem not yours.“N-n-n-n-n…”“USE YOUR WORDS.”“No M-m-mistress!”“Good. Now go tell him we might need the Raptor to fire on the Raven’s Barge if things go south over here. Have him coordinate with the Inferno as need be.”“What about the fact he can’t talk…”“FOR THE LOVE OF KHORNE PRODITUS YOU ARE ABOUT THREE SECONDS FROM…”A long eep fills the channel and then a pop. If you had to guess, he’s thrown and broken the vox unit he was using. The idiot. The next time you’re over there you’ll be at least beating some sense into him. Possibly more. In the meantime, you’re sure either Lazerus or Wormbag will help the ex-Commissar deal with the lack of a voice. Or take over should it be required. Honestly you’re not too concerned with it at the moment. They’ll manage or they’ll face your claws. Trial by fire, as it should be.Speaking of fire, Shiela’s voice of all things fills your microbead. “HIGH MISTRESS, LADY ACEREA IS REQUESTING USE OF MY SERVICES. SHALL I ASSIST?”Oh right, you never took her off autopilot.>  Yeah go have fun.>  Nah I want to come down and pilot you personally.>  Put Acerea on>  Write inIf you haven't figured out who Proditus is a literal metaphor for, shame on you.
>>35719197do forge demons do double crossing?also, he was ordered to serve us by khorne
>>35719176Possessed, no. I was talking more about appearance and tone.A possessed vox implant would be terrible, my god. Just imagine.>Hi there, angry and tormented imprisoned daemon! I'm going to trust you NOT to scream "Death to the false Emperor!" in my voice every time we go incognito. Sound good?"
>>35719214>  Yeah go have fun.I don't think we will really need to ever take her off of autopilot.full auto pilot as the machine spirit becomes corrupted
>>35719214>  Yeah go have fun.
>>35719214> Yeah go have fun.
>>35719214>>  Yeah go have fun.
>>35719214She brought the slaughter, she gets to be her own girl-tank now.I believe we promised her a possession upgrade, yes?
>>35719214>If you haven't figured out who Proditus is a literal metaphor for, shame on you.Am I Proditus?!
>>35719201It's called the Faithful Inferno and it's bigger; I want to put Wormbag in that one once the Slayer of Raptor is upgraded enough to match its guns (no sense letting Wormbag kill our first ship if >>35719197 turns out to be right).Basically, let's do >>35719201 but give Tigurius & Lazarus the Slayer of Raptor with Proditus as everyone's bitch and Tigurius as Captain, and later have Wormbag take command of the Faithful Inferno and see what happens to the Rogue Trader.
>>35719290Tank girl is now best girl.
>>35719299I thought it was ELH, but you're also a candidate. Why do you act reasonable for a month and then shitpost horrifically? You'd almost be alright for a namefag but then you constantly fuck it up
>>35719290T'was discussed, no promises were madeAs is, we almost died fighting that Rak'gol.
>>35719290>I believe we promised her a possession upgrade, yes?Should we let her be possessed if she's already such a good tank?Can't we just pump her up on Daemonic juju and let the corrupting power seep in?
>>35719214Somehow you find the fact a tank’s asking you permission to slaughter things amusing. At this rate you’ll have to slap a leash on it like some sort of Flesh Hound. Actually come to think of it, that’s not a bad idea. You’ll look into that later. “Sure Shiela. Go right ahead. Have fun.”“I DO NOT EXPERIENCE ‘FUN.’ I WILL ASSIST LADY ACEREA REGARDLESS.”Well it seems that whole situation’s under control. You’ve managed to kill 15 minutes. Thanks for being a bumbling idiot, Proditus.>  Decorating time!>  Head down to help Acerea and Sytili out>  Shudder and dial the Rogue Trader>  Write inProditus is the indecisive nature of /tg/. -50dkp and -2 headpats
>>35719214>1] Yeah, go have fun.>2-ish 4] I'm on my way; don't start the fight without me.
>>35719370>  Head down to help Acerea and Sytili out
>>35719322>Why do you act reasonable for a month and then shitpost horrifically? You'd almost be alright for a namefag but then you constantly fuck it up'tis my curse man, things seem to be going alright, then they all go to hell...>>35719370>-50dkp and -2 headpatsNUUUUUUUU!!!
>>35719370I kinda want to delegate... but 
>>35719370Decorations! Remove some rak'gol skulls and mount them
>>35719357Because she's not a true AI, she'll need synthesis with a demonic entity to be able to truly be her own person. But that's okay, most low level demons don't really have what we would consider a personality. She'll get the ability to have emotions, and the lust for [BLOOD] and [BATTLE], but she'll still be "Shiela" in the sense that she'll remember us and have her original programming still.
>>35719357See, this is what we mean when we say you aren't a total faggot. That's something I've been thinking for a while, is good idea. Don't wanna let her personality get overwritten.Maybe let just her guns or armor get possessed? I like that, a Machine Spirit acting as central command for daemonic subsystems.
So do you imagine Shiela's voice is more like her Red vs Blue analog or like a female Bladewolf?
>>35719290Nah she don't need.possession, she's fine as is, and shoving a daemon in her would ruin her, let her become her own beast instead
>>35719370Demonette of Khorne. Turn down a fight? Aw, hell no..Just make sure they can\t ID us.
>>35719462>and shoving a daemon in her would ruin her
>>35719462sheila can maybe get her own reflection in the warp.
>>35719452>Because she's not a true AINothing a little Warp-taint won't fix...>>35719458>Maybe let just her guns or armor get possessed? I like that, a Machine Spirit acting as central command for daemonic subsystems.Eh, still iffy, because the possessed items may still try to override her...>>35719462Exactly!
>>35719500Tank or Commissar?
>>35719458>>35719462See >>35719452It doesn't over-write her necessarily, it just gives her that spark of sentience. But if you guys want to go the straight power route, alright then.Of course, if us and our two companions put our power into it, it would be like our little baby tank of Chaos FUCK YOU SLAANESH, NO-ONE LIKES YOU.
>>35719500Technically, she ALREADY does, it's just not tainted by CHAOS enough...>>35719513>whynotboth.jpegTANKISSAR!!!
>>35719539because if our commissar goes near the thinking tank it becomes a regular old tank
>>35719539>DRIVE ME CLOSER, I WISH TO HIT THEM WITH MY TANK.
I believe  wins out. Maybe one day you'll trust someone enough to delegate. BUT IT IS NOT THIS DAY.Writing...
>>35719547Not if it's corrupted by chaos, instead of possessed. Then the changes stay. >>35719563What kind of weakling delegates slaughter? We just put someone in charge of the ship, damn it.
>>35719370>2I want us to at least attempt diplomacy before we make with the murders. IE >>35719401.>>35719429 is good too; do we have any Grey Knight skulls left, or did we give them all to pops?>>35719452Oh, cool. In that case I support that, though >>35719458 still sounds fun. What's the probability that going with >>35719357>>35719517>straight power routewould make her better in the end on account of more struggle to it?
>>35719547Not that Commissar, though I've already imagined Shiela considering Tiger her daddy...>>35719551>FEAR ME, OR I WILL SQUISH YOU WITH MY TREADS!!!
>>35719563We just got some frustration to work out is all, you judgemental person.
>>35719588I, too, would prefer diplomacy with murder murder murder as a back-up, if only to make it a LITTLE less sketchy. Let's at least try to make it seem like they fucked something up, and released the warp/'nids/whatever.Keep in mind, space marines aren't afraid to fight. So we have to make it look like their clumsy knocking around is DAMAGING OUR SWEET SHIP. MY GOD, WE WILL HAVE YOU DECLARED EXCOMMUNICATUS IF YOU FUCK UP OUR SHIP ONE MORE TIME. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!?!We can even go "We said no psykers, but one of your marines was apparently a latent psyker and bloomed into full fuckery on board! He tried to kill us, what the fuck?" since the BR are known also for having a higher than normal amount of psykers in their chapter
>>35719563Why would we delegate our favorite pastime? We're sharing, with a tank, and a nurglette, and a tyranid
>>35719726we could be decorating or bragging though.
>>35719741And while those are great, they still playvsecond fiddle to bloodshed.>captcha: tyrant convention
>>35719699Honestly, I'd go for Scooby Doo shenanigans, big scary Bloodthirster goes around fucking with the Magpies heads until they either retreat or fall to Khorne.
>>35719699No no no, that's entirely too easy to see through. We can claim they fucked up a seal that let something nasty out, or misincribed a ward such that it backfired, or that somebody's sticky fingers touched a corrupted artifact and one of them started screaming about change and feathers. Plausable fuckups of procedure and personality, not something they're CERTAIN to be keeping particularly close track of.
>>35719741Okay, we'll ask Acerea and co. if they need help, then we'll see about decorating.
>>35719758Don't forget the decorative skull fountains.Decorative skull fountains are the shit
>>35719781Where are we getting all these skulls from? Does Cinder sculpt and forge in her spare time?
>>35719800Apparently she does finger paint
>>35719800Well, I say "decorative", it's more "arranged in an aesthetically pleasing manner" and when I say "fountains", I mean decapitated corpses. I guess the rest explains itself
>>35719842But we only have like, 6 or 14 dead rak'gols on the ship.
>>35719855How many space marines are in a squad?
>>35719855they got eaten by nids
>>35719757I like your plan. Because then they also have to apologize, and we can put the pressure on the Chaplain and then summon him alone to apologize for the results, corrupting him directly so that he can work on the chapter from within. There is totally precedence for this.
>>35719876But Chaplains are as strong as Grey KniHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
>>35719901We know what it is the BR crave. Epic loot. And this ship? This ship is ALLLLL epic loot. They will fall to our seductions.
>>35719955Hence why I believe a Bloodthirster fucking with their minds will help corrupt them; Ship is haunted by Bloodthirster, Ship is Epic Loot, We Bloody Blood Ravens now!
>>35719370Although you trust in Acerea to do her job, you have pent up anger that needs releasing. Hopefully you’ll be able to avoid actual combat but you’re definitely not opposed to it should the need arise. For the moment, you’ll stick to observing via the camera feeds from somewhere on Deck Eleven. That way you’re nearby if/when a problem arises. It takes you close to ten minutes to get situated. Along the way you end up scaring some Gaunts but they quickly get out of your way. No signs of Sytili but you imagine she’s nearby. As for the Ravens, you see that they’ve sent not two but FIVE shuttles filled to the brim. Already Acerea’s interfacing with what you assume is the Chaplain from before and the Captain. She seems highly vulnerable, surrounded on almost every side by idiots in red power armor. Even worse? At least three of them are somehow sporting blessed Bolters that should only be in the care of Grey Knights. Despite all of that the plaguebearer’s keeping her cool. “...No the Madam Inquisitor is currently trying to stabilize the engines. It’s highly involved work and necessitates her full attention.”The Captain shakes his head. “Forgive me Acolyte but it is urgent we speak with her face to face. We have reason to suspect she’s in danger of being corrupted by this vessel, if not already so.”Acerea chuckles and waves her right hand about airily. “Inquisitor Cinder isn’t the type to be so easily swayed by Chaos. Like certain Chapters. But if you insist, I shall try to reach her…”Her hand taps at her ear, “Madam Inquisitor, do you have a moment? Captain Gallienus wishes to make sure you’re still human.”>  Lie and Misdirect (Fel)>  Sure I’ll come meet him. But you’ll have to meet me halfway on Deck 11.>  Yes I’ll meet him. Alone. Without anyone else. In fact just clear the bay. I’ll be there shortly.>  I’m busy. Bring him here (Let Sytili/Acerea/Shiela do their thing)>  Write in

>>35720018> Yes I’ll meet him. Alone. Without anyone else. In fact just clear the bay. I’ll be there shortly.We just got promoted to Bloodthirster and yet we haven't killed a single thing
>>35720018>  Lie and Misdirect (Fel)We can hold our own when it comes to words!
>>35720018>>  Lie and Misdirect (Fel)It's awfully suspicious that they want to keep her from being corrupted by chaos, by interrupting her while she's trying to stabilize the engines. Which could result in the whole ship being corrupted by Chaos. Although, if people insist on going all murder on them, stage it so that it seems like their interruption releases a bloodthirster.
>>35720018>>  Lie and Misdirect (Fel)
>>35720092Perfect reason to let him bring reinforcements!>>35720018>  Sure I’ll come meet him. But you’ll have to meet me halfway on Deck 11.He'll be sandwiched between us and the nids and Acerea
>>35720018Goddamnit, Iggy, this is your schtick. What the hell are you doing?
I wonder if Sheila is tactically magnetized to the hangar's ceiling?
>>35720018 if we need to jump in we can. they brought holy blessed bolters to a tank fight.>>35720099why yes, our cells undergo mitosis, much as yours do fellow human.
>>35720126She tired :<
>>35720103>Although, if people insist on going all murder on them, stage it so that it seems like their interruption releases a bloodthirster.Oh man, that would be hilarious.
>>35720018> Yes I’ll meet him. Alone. Without anyone else. In fact just clear the bay. I’ll be there shortly.

>>35720018>  Lie and Misdirect (Fel)"Put the Captain on.""Captain, Am I to Assume that you believe that I, An Inquisitor of His Holy Inquisition, has been Influenced, Nay CORRUPTED by the vile forces of Chaos? If the Captain wishes to 'ensure my purity', he is most welcome to come down to the Engine Room... However, I don't want half a Company of Ravens Bumbling though and breaking any of the wards I currently have in place.
>>35720018“Am I to assume he can hear me now?” you ask, not sure if she’s put her microbead on speaker or not.“One moment, Madam Inquisitor.” Another tap sees her smiling. “You may speak to the Captain directly now.”You clear your throat and pour every ounce of authority and frustration you possess into your next words. “Captain Gallienus, it’s RATHER suspicious that you keep interrupting my VITAL work to prevent this ship from becoming a literal gateway for daemonkind. Do you have ANY idea the amount of protective wards you’re suggesting that I break just to state your ‘demand’ that I, an Inquisitor of the Ordo Malleus, prove my purity? Removal of even a single one could see the spawning of some unholy abomination. But please, tell me MORE. Because right now you’re running dangerously close to trying my patience.” That last part’s a lie, but he doesn’t need to know that you’re already wanting to rip off his head.Gallienus simply hefts his bolter to a more comfortable position. “My apologies for interrupting your progress. But if we cannot verify your purity we will be taking this ship as mandated by the highest of authorities.”“And what in the name of the Emperor might that be?”He smiles. The smug fuck smiles. “Our chapter mandate, of course.”Heresy. But the kind of heresy that you can’t easily turn to your favor. Or is it?>  Fine.

Come on guys! They just outed themselves! Just think, we can have *five* dropships of *competent* minions! We're gold! Just think of how many glaives that means we can send out en masse? We'll be the best, most well equiped Khornate EVER!
>>35720417Nah, it'll be bad for Inquisitor Cinder's street cred if she accurately predicts the daemons that spawn, let's wager that it'll be a Keeper of Secrets or a Guardian of Contradictions.

>>35720556>If he doesn't die due to being stupid enough to charge us> have a chat that boils down to "serve me or die"
>>35720556Is the captain coming down alone?
>>35720512Ha, let's do this. Facing him head on rather than from the shadows is more pleasing to Khorne anyways, I'm sure.
>>35720556>>  Keep the Captain alive and have a chat that boils down to "serve me or die"Khorne will be pleased with us pulling the Bloody Blood Ravens to our cause.
>>35720577No but the nature of the corridors, the path they'll take, and the Acerea/Shiela/Sytili trap means you won't have to face all 50 Ravens at once.
>>35720556>>  >>35720512then >  Keep the Captain alive and have a chat that boils down to "serve me or die"Be even funnier if we "predict" them loosing a bloodthirster in the first place.
>>35720599Or killing them all. Or if they slaughter us.Really, we shouldn't be too stressed out about what pleases Khorne. We should focus on what looks AWESOME.
>>35720556> Keep the Captain alive and have a chat that boils down to "serve me or die"[Insert Bjorn the Fell-Handed's "transfer" to the magpies cap here]
>>3572060950? They sent 5 squads instead of two? They're planning on jacking us regardless. Fuck. Them. Slaughter everyone but the captain. Captain gets to decide whether to join us or die condemned as a heretic.
>>35720556> >>35720512If he attacks us, he dies. If he doesn't die, we can do the join dor die talk.
>>35720639Meh, I like it either way.
>>35720556>  >>35720512>>35720632There bloodravens what do you expect
He might be relaying our conversation to the other space marines, so it might be best to eliminate him as quickly as possible.
>>35720660Well, we also have a rogue trader on our side. It's going to look pretty fucking bad for them if a member of the =][= gets scragged and the rogue trader points them out as making a play for STC tech. They'll have everyone on their ass, the rest of their chapter (so as to not be associated with them), the AdMech (because they want the STC damn it!), the =][= (obviously), and pretty much all the other SM forces.>>35720675That's why I say we don't meet them in bloodthirster form unless we plan on killing them all.
I fear that since a Space Marine Captain will be the underdog in a fight with a Bloodthirster, there's a good chance he might win.
>>35720694The rougetrader ship is full of loot and next to a spacehulk and black hole so its a easy target and screwing over the other imperial factions is all right by them
>>35720730Not if they get caught and declared Heretics.Especially since we will DEFINITELY be gunning for them, and they won't have any allies on either side of the fence.
 it is. Writing...I don't think it'll happen, but we might go into 14.5 should we sage off early.
Say, I wonder who the Captain is. Is it Vanilla Ice?
>>35720795Crap that guy was nuts when it came to looting stuff
>>35720833Queen will never forget what he did
>>35720795Ice, Ice, baby.
>>35720795he should be on a penitent crusade. then again... hes probably already on the line as far as falling goes.
>>35720898Ah, slacking on his penitence to curry favor with the Imperium and his Chapter by rummaging around Space Hulks.
>>35720379You give pause for dramatic effect. “Fine. Acerea bring them down here. And pray that…” You cut off the line with a burst of static. Moments later you feel Sytili brush against your mind.<So I take it you’d like us to herd him towards you?><Indeed. Also I need a bit of blood and something that’ll pass for human meat. Know anything?>A certain plaguebearer’s voice “joins” the “call.” <I do~! Sytili, have a Gaunt bring her two of my Bloodblooms. That should be more than enough. We’ll be there in five minutes.>You push their minds away and focus on making the corridor you’re in look convincing. Deep gashes on the wall, a few bolter round impacts, enough to make it seem like there was a fight. Once the Gaunt arrives, Bloodblooms in its mouth, you split the fruit open and coat the area with more ambience. The final piece is to leave your corrupted Rosette in the middle of the fake meat and plasma. Well, second to last piece. “Computer,” you ask aloud. “I need you to blanket jam all vox frequencies leaving the Engine until I tell you otherwise. I assume you’re capable of such?”“AFFIRMATIVE.”“Then do it.”“VOX JAMMING ENGAGED. INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS WILL NOT BE AFFECTED.”Excellent. That just leaves you waiting for the Captain to arrive. You take up a lounging position in one of the vent access alcoves near the staged scene. In the distance you already hear the thunder of Shiela’s cannon and the shrieks of Tyranids. It won’t be long now. (cont)
>>35720972The sound of a melta grenade exploding around the corner draws your attention. The Captain, followed by five of his fellows, dives around it and towards you. Their backs still turned, they haven’t noticed you yet. “Good,” Gallienus gasps. “That will buy us some time to loop back to the shuttles. I knew this was a trap from the moment she had us seal our boxes. No Inquisitor would dare ask that of us.”“Wouldn’t they, though?” you casually remark, idly staring at your claws. All six marines visibly jump at the sound of your obviously daemonic taunt. Though their heads are all encased within their helmets, you can feel their discomfort as they take in the scene and your form. One of the braver underlings tries to raise his bolter. You immediately flick your wrist and send warp chains flying out towards it. They wrap around the weapon, rip it out of his hands, and sends it flying into your waiting free hand. “Ah, the Imperium and it’s toys…” You look the bolter over, making sure to look as unimpressed as possible. Then you crush it like it was nothing. “Too bad. Your Inquisitor was right. All it took was one slip of her concentration to worm inside her head. Poor thing put up a good fight though. I’ll enjoy eating her soul for eternity…”The Captain steps forward, raising his own bolter. He had stones, you had to give him that. “Then our main problem is you then. We remove you then the rest will be easy. Prepare for death, foul daem-”“Oh I wouldn’t do that if I were you,” you say nonchalantly. “You see I have every memory that the Madam Inquisitor had. That means I know about your little heretical slip-up minutes ago. You wouldn’t want that getting out, would you?”He laughs, his helmet amplifying and distorting the noise. “You have no means to do so. We’ve already tried radioing our barge for assistance. It seems the Madam Inquisitor defies you even in death.”(cont)
>>35720987You roll your eyes. Good thing he’s dense. “You seem to forget I’m a DAEMON, dear boy…” Hoping off of the ledge you’re sitting on you stride forward towards them. Each step sees your tail swinging powerfully and sensually behind you, along with your rear spikes. The Ravens visibly recoil and raise their weapons. Those that have them anyways.“Ah ah ah…” you tut, ripping all of them free with a single swipe. “We can’t have that…”“KNIVES!” shouts the Captain. Only three of them, including him, manage to draw the weapons.>  Continue the smack down until they yield or kill themselves>  Step past the oncoming thrust, grab the Captain’s head, and impress upon him the weight of his situation.>  Write in
>>35721002Kill the three raven's with him to impress upon him his situation

>>35721002> Continue the smack down until they yield or kill themselveswould be shitty would-be Khornates that kill themselves wihtout putting up a fight.
>>35721002 I guess, since we seem to be done voting.
>>35721002“Oh that’s adorable! You have little daggers!” They’re easily the size of their gauntleted fists but it just wouldn’t do NOT to insult them at this point. You haven’t had much chance to turn on the daemonic terror bomb before now. It’s really, REALLY fun. “Well come on then. Try and slay one of Khorne’s finest. I’ll even make it interesting and fair: I won’t use my arms.”The moment your arms go behind your back, the Ravens roar in collective anger. They leap forward enmasse and attempt to pin you against one of the walls. You easily sidestep all six of them. Behind you, your tail lashes out, the brass-coated tip opening large rends in their armor. They’re not deep enough to actually wound them though. “See? No hands and I’ve already opened up your precious armor like it was nothing. How DO you expect to slay me then, hmmm?”Vaguely, you’re aware of Acerea musing <My my, someone’s having fun~>Another charge from the marines sees you barely moving from your current position while completing the destruction you started. Everything below the Ravens’ waist crashes to the ground, completely useless. “Why you…!”“Hey I’m not a daemon of Slaanesh. Keep your pants on boys. Or don’t. Either way you’re about to die. Alone and far from the light of your Emperor. Unless…”You once again pause for dramatic effect. As predicted, the Captain takes the bite. “Unless what, daemon? We sacrifice ourselves to you? Scavengers we may be but at least dying here prevents my Chapter from falling.”“Hrm… see you THINK that. I wager that between what I have from the Inquisitor, the Rogue Trader sitting kilometers away in his ship, and this vessel, you’ll soon find your entire Chapter under siege for heresy. Face it, boy. You have no choice BUT to serve me.” One of you claws reaches out and slashes off his helmet. His grizzled face is lined with shock and fear. Good.(cont)
>>35721421“I…”“Take your time. I have plenty of it. You, on the other hand, have until the Tyranids clear the rubble. Or so I wager anyways.”With that you turn away, leaving your back to them. You confidently walk back over to the rosette and pluck it up. “Tick tock, tick tock…”A knife goes sailing past your head. Grabbing it midair, you throw it over your shoulder right back at the Raven who threw it. He dies instantly as the blade severs his neck from his body. “Should I take that as your response, Captain?”You glance over your shoulder slyly just in time to catch the moment when his resolve breaks. “Fine. If it means we can have some of this ship’s technology, we will serve you.”“Ahhhh, see now we’re getting somewhere!” You round on him with daemonic glee. “But I think you’ll find I’m rather hesitant to part with my toys so easily. Perhaps if you prove yourself useful, I shall share. Until then…”You look to the fallen Raven next to him. He follows yours gaze and gulps. “Get. Off. My. Ship.” you snarl. He doesn’t have to be told twice. Him and his entire crew go scrambling back the way they came. But before they get too far, you leave them with one final word of advice. “And don’t think about betraying me either. I can just as easily manifest on your little barge should I think you’re working against my wishes.” With that they’re gone. Around the corner and presumably left free to run back in panic to their shuttle. In any event, you certainly feel far better than you did before. Maybe it’s time to finally get around to decorating?(Housekeeping next post)
>>35721435So we didn't get to Bloodbath discussions but at least you handled the main problem facing you (Re: Ravens). The infamy involved in this is wrapped up with your Bloodthirster advance so nothing new this time.Now in regards to the next session... I can either do Acerea's Oneshot or KQ #15. The former means we'll focus largely on the plaguebearer and her zoanthrope friend. The latter means we'll focus more on things like Iggy, fleet management, and where to go from here. You'll get some of each in both options, but again, note where the focus is.>  Acerea's Oneshot>  KQ #15Otherwise, free game for Q&A as per usual. Hope you enjoyed.
>>35721488>  Acerea's Oneshot
>>35721488>  Acerea's OneshotPlaguebearer needs more love. Thanks for the thread though, ELH.
>>35721488 Acerea's OneshotAs long as we get that Bloodbath to our quarters il will be satisfied with anything.
>>35721488>  Acerea's OneshotThis is ace
>>35721435And this is how someone falls. Just a little thing, at first. Pushing an "inquisitor" so that you can get to the loot. But now there's a demon, and it turns out you're responsible for the Inquisitors death. But things can still be turned around, if you come back with the prize. Success counts for a lot, you know. But the Demon doesn't go down, instead it defeats you. It leaves you a chance, to work for/with it - and maybe end up getting some loot. It's not really so bad, so long as you're killing xeno's, and maybe even other Chaos factions. It's like doing the Emperors, work, really, with the Demon being a piece of work that is more profitable to put off. It's not really so much farther than stealing from an Inquisitor.With little steps, each one adding up after the other, we will have these Marines so wrapped up in Chaos that they won't realize it's too late until they're unable to turn back (hint: We're pretty much already there. I mean, once you've made a deal with a Demon, what keeps you from making more?)>>35721488>  Acerea's Oneshot
>>35721488>  Acerea's OneshotWe should Try and get her a Promotion.... She should be close to one now, right?
>>35721488>  KQ #15
>>35721488 Acerea's OneshotGirl deserves it, and I'm kinda curious about her backstory.
>>35721488> Acerea's OneshotNNNNNIIIIIIDDDDDSSSSS
Acrea's a bit underdeveloped still. A one-shot would be neat. Voting 
>>35721536She was a gardener born on a moon.
>>35721536She was a botanist on research void platform designation 13.
>>35721488> Acerea's Oneshot
Oneshot it is. I may have to do a LITTLE research into Isha (or break canon) but fuck it. Not that hard to do.Let's shoot for this Saturday around 3pm like we did originally last week. Bonus: Iggy and I share a birthday. Hint: It's Saturday in-quest too
>>35721488>KQ #15Let's hold off just one week on the oneshot, I want to fine-tune the fleet first. Base-eight command structure, brass 'nids, and proper Khornate decor need to be instituted.
>>35721536She was a geneticist involved in terraforming a planet that was swallowed up by warp-storms. In order to survive, she blended the colonists DNA with that of local plants. When they started dying regardless, she turned to the warp to make the science work regardless. She had children. The children of the colony died first. They were why she brought the magic into it, but when they were brought back they were mindless growths.When the Imperium arrived to save the colony, her original children were purged. Now, she sees them in all the plants she cares for. That's why she was so pissed off when the Fern that she poured her love into was killed.
>>35721662If she was originally mortal I'd steal this. Sadly >>35721553 is correct for the time being.
>>35721652> It's Iggy's birthday next sessionWHAT THE FUCK DO WE GET HER?!
Will the Khornament have a Death Race with Daemon Engines?
>>35721818We make a stuffed animal with a collar that has brass skull bells.
>>35721683Which moon, though? Holy Terra's?
>>35721821Better question: How the fuck should we handle the ones we KNOW are coming (Kharn, Abaddon, etc). Diplomacy? Stabby stab?
>>35721850Some backwoods planet.
>>35721854We meet them in honorable combat of their or our own choosing.
>>35721839Roll agility. If you pass Cinder can make it. If you fail she ends up baking a cake somehow. >>35721850>>35721856
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>35721872
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>35721872STUFFING FOR THE STUFFED GOD!
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>35721872
>>35721878Can . . . can we name it Tibbers?
>>35721877>>35721878>>35721888Cinder's present will be an adorable stuffed animal of some variety with brass skull bells on its collar. My little Bloodthirster can't be this cute.Acerea's will have to be something you come up with in her oneshot.
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>35721872
>>35721875Now this is death racing!
We're getting a little strong for most of the enemies we encounter. The next time we run into some IG, can they have a mixture of a Baneblade and this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4R8APv01YM
She's his kinda gal.
>>35721995I hope he wasn't the one who got his adamantine pants cut off.
>>35722006Read it again. They ALL lost their armored pantaloons. Cinder for fem fatale 2014
>>35722028Damn Cinder, keep up that kind of fighting and you are going to pick up the wrong kind of infamous reputation.
So, our bloodthirster form. Are we always big, or can we control how big we are to an extent?
>>35722084If she actually tries she can shrink and modify her form. Like me.
>>35722108So loli cinder is a possibility?
>>35722131You'll never get her to do it. Your efforts would be better spent trying to get an Ork to understand Quantum Mechanics.
>>35722108Makes sense, the smaller target is smaller to hit after all.Quick question about the STC on board, can it manufacture more complex objects? Stuff like replacement equipment for Sheila, Volkite weaponry, and even duct tape? You planning on using it to bribe those Bloody Magpies into Cinder's fold?
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>35722150Wot yer sayin', ya birdy git? Dat "Kwantoom Fizziks" stuff, it works roight proppah!
>>35722159All of the drones and what not were made onboard best I can tell. So yes. I'm sure there's limits we haven't found yet.I haven't figured out HOW it does it though. I feel like entropy's being violated somewhere but maybe it's entangling Warp energy somehow. Infinite amount of that going around last I checked.
Iggy, get your blue butt outta here, you're gonna spoil the surprise.
>>35722181Contrary to popular belief, Orks are the greatest scientists found in the galaxy in 41st millennium. They just sort of yell about an abstract concept until it starts behaving how they think it should.
>>35722184So, Iggy, just what are your thoughts on Cinder receiving headpats from Khorne?
I wanted to see a cool scene where we have to escape the Space Hulk really quickly before it imploded.
>>35722253Khorne isn't real, silly. He's just a collective fever dream of soldiers and murderers.
>>35722253Supreme rage.>>35722202> Implying I didn't already know.>>35722264Get out of here you.
>>35722273>> Implying I didn't already know.>30 seconds before Cinder is about to give Ignitrix the stuffed animal.>"Eh, she won't like this, I'm no good at making things.">Jettisons it into a sun.
>>35722308I wouldn't mind even if it was a skull on a stick. I haven't actually gotten a gift in... wow it's been that long.
>>35722273>Supreme rage.sounds about right for khorne
>>35722378Just as planned.>See, Tzeentch? I can do it too!
>>35722340aww its alright Iggy, we care about you, even if you are a glorified acolyte all over again
>>35720628Apologies for the delay, my folders need sorting.>captcha: for thottboxI guess BRavens do think more than WolfWolves, especially what with all the librarians.Thottbox, though? Is it telling us to make a Librarian Dreadnought into a Sorcerer Dreadnought somehow? Is that even possible?
>>35722308Nah see Cinder know's Iggy well, better than Iggy would like, Cinder may play dumb with her but she knows how she feels and appreciates her.Our present is going to be the best stuffed animal ever.
>>35722413Acolyte? Nigga she a fullblown Interrogator. She's pretty much Cinder's right hand these days.
>>35722419The question is, what does Acerea think of Cinder and Ignitrix? She's been kind of an enigma with how polite she's been this whole time. Perhaps she really is a good person, or maybe she hates everybody, who knows?
>>35722445Oh indeed, but we like teasing her about it a little
>>35722445No, the left hand is for manipulation and cunning, the right hand is for support and encouragement.
>>35722453She probably has a nurturing motherly relationship with them and sees them as daughter figures going through their teenage years.Either way we'll find out next thread which I'm looking forward to.Thanks for the thread ELH, and thanks for keeping it awesome, stay awesome you magnificent bastard.
>>35722467Hm, I look forward to the day where they'll be as sisters using and supporting each other for advancement in their careers.
