In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium there is only war. Imperium of Man, once strong and proud, now is slowly crumbling, whole regions of space are lost to the horrors that lurk in the darkness of the void. Sector Deus is just one of thousands of Imperial provinces that form the frontline in the war to defend Humanity itself. Corruption from within and aggression from without threaten it. But Emperor sends us hope. High Lords of Terra commissioned a Chapter of Adeptus Astartes, finest warriors Humanity has ever seen, to defend this region of space. They are the last line of defence that hold Age of Ruin at bay. They are the Ghosts of Retribution and this is their tale.

Apologies, got distracted with some stuff. Last session we dealt with some of the management issues. Today we can either continue with that or if you wish we can proceed with either pilgrimage with the Ice Wraiths or something else. Some things for your attention:1. Expected events are resolved:>347.M41 = Raven Guard Doctrine will come into effectYour new methods of fighting are in force now. Who shall be your first target?>347.M41 = 45 Scouts will be readymid 45 scouts join the ranks of 10th company!>347.M41 = Transport Ship Pale Raven should arrive at The Iron Phoenix and deliver its cargoMS, please enter the scene.>347.M41 = Next expected geneseed harvest. Please roll 2d100 for the geneseed harvest.2. Please updated Chapter History page and let us decide the name of the Quixos' operation, it deserves to have a page!3. What are your next actions?
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>38114278>Please roll 2d100 for the geneseed harvest.
>>38114278isn't it 345?
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>38114278>>38114306guess I'll roll the other d100
>>38114278Let's get going with this pilgrimage. But first we need to have a chat with Geron.>Brother, I received word from Cagirates that Ursus is a heretic, consorting with a non-imperial empire. I need you to infiltrate his palace and find proof of this heresy, that we might show it for all to see. Be careful in the palace, I fear that even our brother's in the honour guard may have somehow been subverted to Ursus' will. If you're captured (though I highly doubt they could catch you) say it was a training exercise for the honour guard. Once the mission is complete make your way to a civilian starport from where we can extract you. Good luck brother.Dispatch Geron to infiltrate Larion Ursus' palace and find proof of his supposed heresy.
>>38114519Send Geron with a damned data cable so that he can securely speak on a hard line to Cagirates if the need arises.
>>38114308Due to visit in Maccabeus Quintus, unfavourable warp conditions and a long distance from Farness Beta you arrived to Sector Deus in late 346.M41. Today we are resolving events of 347.M41 ;)Please roll d3% for Heresy lossPlease roll d10 + d3 for income from VardaPlease roll d100 for Chapter EventsPlease roll d100 for Sector EventsPlease roll d100 for Galaxy Events>>38114306You managed to collect 94% harvest of the geneseed from your marines! It constitutes a total of 559 units of geneseed.>>38114393However from the quality of the collected batch it seems that a mild mutation has developed in our gene code. What shall you do?1. Purge all the geneseed, it's the only way to be sure2. Remove most of geneseed, leaving only samples that are almost guaranteed to be pure [destroy 500 geneseed, 5% chance of mutation]3. Remove half of the geneseed at Klementhos' discretion. Hopefully it will reduce the danger enough to get rid of the mutation. [destroy 280 units of geneseed, 25% chance of mutation]4. Purge only clearly tainted geneseed. [destroy 100 units of geneseed, 45% chance of mutation]5. Keep all the geneseed and praise to the Emperor that it's beneficial [81% chance of mutation]
Also we have 16XP to spend I propose>+4 Intelligence>+4 Endurance>+4 CharismaLeaving us with 4 left in case we need to buy a skill or trait that comes up.Y/N?

We got +3W this year.>>38114803Bones of St. Emiline were stolen from the Order of the Bleeding Hearts abbey. Culprits are unknown, this blasphemous act demoralises all the faithful in the southern regions of Segmentum Tempestus.>>38114813Ebon Host, Nurglite Warband of Traitor Astartes attacked Imperial pilgrim ship "Dutiful Mule" in Sector Cryptus. Sister Agatha of the Order of Bloody Tears with a dozen of her sisters managed to beat them back heroically, however their threat still remains.>>38114840Captain Dreidor has gotten into an argument with Brethorius which one of them is tougher. They have agreed to match their skills by surviving for a month on the surface of the Dead World Sictix. They are requesting your permission for this. You know that if they will complete their challenge, they will become better warriors, but this could end badly... What shall you do?>>38114936>>38114897>>38114893>>38114890I must note that TripMarine is a good player even if his rolls are not always great. So it's 2, correct?
Rolled 94 (1d100)>>38115459Only Geron is to know of the plan. That way if caught by the honour guard the whole 'it's a test of your skills' thing is believable.
>>38115509Can I spend a fate point to reroll this skargan?
>>38115459Posting this again, hope somebody says something about it:about Dermont: We should give him a Report on his sons Kerius and Artemis if we have not done so already
>>38115509>>38115539That was only for the Quixos fight, but as you have done some amazing work on the wiki and Geron is one of your favourite characters, you can. But I am taking second roll for sure.>>38115605Great idea, sorry for missing it earlier. Roll d100 to see how they are doing.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>38115640Alright let's try this again.
>>38115640For Artemis may he keep us in good faith
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>38115672Try again, rolling
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>38115672For Kerius, let us hope he learned more than just eldar hygiene
>>38115721*xaviorKerius is the father.
>>38115695We should also ask them if they've noticed their father becoming more distant and what may have caused it.
>>38115756Maybe he knows he's old and wants to see a heir to his seat, keep his lineage going?
>>38115799Hmm in that case he may be worried about which son would succeed him.
>>38115841hardly the younger doesnt want to, and the elders fine with it
>>38115672>>38115695Artemis and Xavior, sons of Kerius Dermont, spent years with the Chapter, learning gathering experience. Today they are fine young men full of passion and ambition. Artemis has grown to be just like his father, tough, ambitious, straight to the point. Mentorship by Captain Macedon might have had something to do with this. Meanwhile his brother Xavior tended to spend a lot more days with old Klementhos, studying and seeking answers to the questions that bothered him about the world. Their return to their father is probably the greatest gift you could have arrange for the old man, he wasn't expecting them to come back for another decade or more. He is overjoyed:>I must thank you, Chapter Master, for all the good you've done for my people and my family. I am happy to see that my sons grew up to be worthy men under your care!He proceeds to arrange a week long celebration at the capital of Kanihirium, all the men of your Chapter are invited to participate as well. Dermont sons are back on Mormark and you smile to yourself knowing that you have prepared the next generation of leaders for your homeworld. However as you are leaving the ballroom for some reason you turn back and see the old dictator wistfully looking into the distance through the stained glass window. Happy he may be, but this once great man has his own ghosts to fight.
>>38115670Stealth 70 = Minor Success+++Tachion Primaris is a great place for a man like Geron. Secret passages, high rooftops, maintenance tunnels, cables - so many possibilities to infiltrate! Naturally the Regal Spire, home of the Sector Lord Governor is extremely well protected, but Geron managed to slip through all the outer security unnoticed... What shall he do?1. Infiltrate Larion's work cabinet and download files [modifier +0]2. Try to shadow Larion Ursus and listen in on his conversations/monitor odd things about his routine [modifier -25]3. Follow members of Ursus family to see whether they have any dark connections...Please roll d100 for Geron and then roll a d100 for your Honour Guard to intercept him.

Some of the things he discovers are both unsettling and shocking. +It appears that Deidara Ursus, Larion's wife is very fond of "benefactors". Who are they Geron doesn't manage to find out, but over the course of the day she mentions them on two separate occasions when speaking with important individuals from high society who secretly come to pay her respects.+Geron also infiltrated Katriona's chambers, seeking to find some signs of heresy. What he found instead was Larion himself, having his way with his daughter in ways that unsettled your scout worse than some of the daemons he had to face in the past. At least that explains why she hasn't married for so long...+It appears that the household is full of minor xenotech. Geron has recorded a wraithbone pendant, Tarellian ritual sword on the wall, collection of Ork teeth. Sector nobility is known for using xenotech as a form of rare and expensive commodity, but what interests Geron is a non-Imperial human made cogitator. He wasn't able to access it as it is at all times protected by one of our brothers in the Honour Guard.+++Should he retreat or continue looking for something? if continue, then again roll 2d100

I'd love to chat with you, but I hope you understand - I received no orders from the Master Ursus to expect you, I must take you to Cagirates.What do you answer?[secret roll]

Bolts soon start flying around him as a few Astartes come rushing towards him.>Infiltrator! Protect the Governor! Geron barely escapes them, but within a few hours he is safely off the Tachion Primaris.

>>38119122>Let's wrap up any unfinished business and end the session for the day!I want to publicly state that having operatives on solo missions is retarded.

If the matter of discussion is open, just tell me, otherwise send your emissary to Terra and I'll hear you out. Don't trust astropathic channels, warp isn't as calm as it used to be these days.

>>38119515As you walk down the hallway you feel a strange feeling... It feels similar to what you have felt back during the days when the Laughing God held sway over your soul, but it's different. Then you suddenly notice that the Mark of Fate and Time burns hot on your skin. As you touch your mind starts to wander and leaves your body. You fly faster than light somewhere far into the stars, along one of the strands of pure white. At first, there is only one, the one you are following, but as you go further, you notice more and more of them... They seem to be crossing each others paths, coming from the darkness and disappearing into the future. And then, you see them. A young boy, no more than 15 years of age and girl, probably his sister, hugging each other on a cold street of a huge hive. They are hungry and miserable, they are lowest of the low, dirt under the threads of Imperium. The boy looks up at the massive drilling towers dotting the horizon. His gaze is one of pain and despair. He then turns to his sister:>I have to do it Maryam. We will not survive otherwise. Wait for me here.She silently nods and crawls into a corner. The boy goes across the street to the old building with the sign of "Danner's Best Wares" sprawled across the facade. He takes out a shiny silver ring out of his pocket:>A bucket of promethium and 20 ration packs, please.Vendor laughs at him:>For stolen silver? Hah, I will not give you even ten!The boy replies angrily, his eyes full of pride and hurt:>It's not stolen! I am not thief! it was my fathers!Vendor laughs once more:>Sure it was, sure it was, boy. Fine, here, take your stuff and be gone.Vendor takes the ring and lifts it in front of his eyes to take a good look. It's an old silver ring with a Dragon on it's coat of arms. You start feeling dizzy and you hear voices calling you from the real world. But then, a moment before you are drawn back, you notice the incription... BELISARII.
