You have two hurt ladies with you.---Amelia is trying to find her bolt pistol while hitting her head against the dungeon wall."Please! He's in here..."Amelia points at her head as she begins to claw at the sides of the head.>Amelia, you have to calm down. Tell me who's in there.>No, I won't do it.>I will grant you His Mercy then... Good bye. [Grab your knife]>Stay Silent
>>38251316>Hold her>Look straight into her eyes>Headbutt her hard enough to knock her unconscious.
>Amelia, you have to calm down. Tell me who's in there.
>>38251381>>38251316This after>Amelia, you have to calm down. Tell me who's in there.
>>38251393>>38251399It's... Him!... I can hear him! He wants me!..."Amelia grabs her head and then looks at you."Please... I don't want to hear him anymore! I can feel him trying to subdue me...">No, we'll get out of here together.>Then I'll see you on the other side, sister...>Stay Silent.
>>38251694>>No, we'll get out of here together.Recite A prayer sister let the Emperor be your shield. While he is with your there is no need to fear.
>>38251694>>No, we'll get out of here together.
>>38251694>No, we'll get out of here together.
>>38251761>>38251934>>38251968"I... Alright... I'll try to... Stay up..."Amelia looks to her left and tries to hit something that you cannot see."Stop it... I won't listen..."Amelia stands up and begins to make her way to the entrance."My lord, may I have one of those lasguns?"Melani rubs her eyes as she tries to stand up. She winces just a bit before stand up fully. She grabs one and looks at it. She messes around with it for a few seconds before smiling."Today is a good day to kill heretics.">Indeed it is. Let's get moving (Give Amelia a lasgun)>Let's get moving (Do not give Amelia a lasgun)
>>38252260>>Indeed it is. Let's get moving (Give Amelia a lasgun)But she goes in first.
>>38252260>>Indeed it is. Let's get moving (Give Amelia a lasgun)chant litanies
>>38252260>Let's get moving (Do not give Amelia a lasgun)
>>38252275>>38252316You hand Amelia a lasgun. She smiles and then twitches back."Shut up!..."She hugs the lasgun and begins to make her way up the dungeon stairs.---As you walk through the hallways at a quick pace, you see that many of the marines are on the floor groaning."We have to get out of here..."Melani looks to you and then over at some marines getting up. Her eyes widen as they get up and she whimpers a little bit.>Hurry up, we move.>We can take them, just be careful as we move.
>>38252821>>We can take them, just be careful as we move.
>>38252853>>38252867Melani looks down at the marines as they begin to rise up off the ground. She still whimpers but she aims her lasgun at the marines as they rise up off the ground."I'll kill that sorcerer when I see him again... What, where are we?">Stay silent and leave.>Your grave.>Stay silent and attack them.
>>38253303>>Stay silent and attack them.
>>38253303wait whos speaking?
>>38252821>>38253303Wait, what sort of marines are these again?
>>38253303>>Stay silent and leave.observe and learn more about the situation
>>38253400>>38253576It's a chaos marine.
>>38253303>Stay silent and leave.
>>38253597>>38254992As you begin to leave, you hear one of the seize up as he begins to groan loudly. He jumps up and looks around the room."I know you're here. I will find you!"The marine seems to be blind as he moves around, his movements resembling that of a puppet."You cannot escape my grasp! No one can!"You have a perfect shot at the marine's skull. The lasgun in your hand feels like it wants to be fired.>Kill the marine and move on.>Just move on.
>>38255111>>Kill the marine and move on.Unless lasguns makes noises then no.
>>38255111>>Kill the marine and move on. shove down throat and pull trigger for a silent but tasteful death
>>38255111>Kill the marine and move on.
>>38255145>>38255164You quickly level your lasgun towards his head as he moves around a little bit. Finally, you pull the trigger. The small zap noise that came from the lasgun barely made any noise as the grunt of the marine and his fall muffles most of the noise from the lasgun. Amelia smiles a little bit. Suddenly, she grabs her throat as she throws herself into a wall."Dammit! Get out of my head!"She protects herself from an assailant that only she can see, trying to swipe away incoming blows. She then picks up her lasgun and begins to fire wildly at this invisible person.>Take the lasgun from her. (1D10)>Talk her down. (1D10, +1 to roll from social skill.)>1 Crit fail.>2-5 Fail.>6-9 Success.>10 Crit Success.>11 1 Crit, 1 Success.
>>38256031>Talk her down. (1D10, +1 to roll from social skill.)

Rolled 6 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>38256031>Talk her down. (1D10, +1 to roll from social skill.)
Rolled 5 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>38256031TALK HER DOWN
>>38256111>>38256121You try to talk her down, however she simply screams and grabs her head. She swings the lasgun at something only she can see and then she turns to you. She cries a little bit before putting her head in her hands. Amelia falls to the floor as she begins to sob. However, the sobbing stops as she begins to look up towards you, wide eyed and opened mouth. She points at you as she begins to stand."It's you... It's you! No, I won't let you hurt me!"She throws her lasgun to the side and begins to walk towards you. Her pace quickens before it becomes a charge.>Jump out of the way. (1d10, +1 from combat.)>Use a skill.>Take the charge head on, blocking the damage coming towards you. (1d10)>1 Crit fail.>2-5 Fail.>6-9 Success.>10 Crit Success.>11 1 Crit, 1 Success

Rolled 1 (1d10)>>38256265>Take the charge head on, blocking the damage coming towards you. (1d10)
>>38256361At least you didn't post in time.
>>38256361haha thank god you slow
>>38256286You brace yourself for the incoming charge. She screams as she almost jumps towards you, trying to push you to the floor. You, however, simply hold her back. You push her towards the floor as you keep yourself up. She falls to the floor and tries to get back up. However, Amelia just falls to the floor after trying for a few seconds and begins to weep."Emily... Emily, please, help me..."Melani looks towards you with a concerned look."We can't keep letting her go through these... phases... We have to do something.">I won't let her die here.>Perhaps you're right...>Stay silent and pick Amelia up.>Stay silent and level your lasgun towards Amelia's head.
>>38256429>Perhaps you're right...We dealt with possession once before, we can do it again.
>>38256429>>Stay silent and pick Amelia up.>>38256456that's the kill her chocie
>>38256429>Stay silent and pick Amelia up.
>>38256429>>Stay silent and pick Amelia up. time to go find emily...am pretty sure she made up promise to look after her...or was it the other way around
>>38256476I'm pretty sure we at least helped with an exorcism before.
>>38256506ya we have but the choice you picked was to kill her
>>38256531Are you actually blind? The kill her option is the last one.
>>38256560 that is the just do it option rather than the actually say something then do it option you will notice the y are split into silent and not silent actions
>>38256429>>Stay silent and pick Amelia up.
>>38256476>>38256489>>38256494Even though her power armor makes it difficult for you to pick up Amelia, you heft her up like she was wearing nothing at all. You look at Melani and then you begin to walk. Melani nods slowly as she begins to follow you."My lord, I'm sorry about that, but I thought that it would be best if we gave her The Emperor's Mercy now..."You keep on walking, avoiding some areas that may have people inside of them. Amelia keeps silently weeping as you keep walking."Nameless... I don't want him in here... Please..."You keep on walking as she still begs for you to kill her."Emily... Help me..."---After a few minutes of walking, you finally make your way to a courtyard. You hear Melani groan a bit as she slumps to the ground. Outside, you can see hundreds of people shuffling around. They do not see you nor does it seem that they can see at all, some of them bumping into each other. However, many of them are saying things about what they would do if they caught you."I'm going to rip you and that bitch apart when I finally get my hands on you.""I should have killed them when I had the chance.""When I can see again, there will be nothing that can stop me..."Across the courtyard, you can see someone waving at you behind some boxes. It's Hendrick and a few scouts. You wave back as you begin to examine the courtyard again.>Try to sneak your way across the courtyard. (1d10, +1 from blind people, -1 from carrying Amelia.)>Try to find another way around. (1d10)>1 Crit fail.>2-5 Fail.>6-9 Success.>10 Crit Success.
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>38256684>Try to find another way around. (1d10)
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>38256684>>Try to sneak your way across the courtyard. (1d10, +1 from blind people, -1 from carrying Amelia.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>38256684>>38256684>>Try to find another way around. (1d10)
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>38256732Welp.>Try to find another way around. (1d10)
>>38256732i have hate for you
>>38256732We already lost an arm, stop killing us
>>38256802>>38256816Our death shall feed the nurgle.
can some one post a pic of the big E and his beauty to show that we love him
>>38256913i believe that this picture is heresy!!
>>38256732Hah.---As you look around the courtyard for another way out, you accidentally try to put Amelia down with both of your arms. You can almost feel Hendrick's and Melani's hearts stop as the loud thunk from Amelia's power armor echoes through the courtyard. The mob of people turn towards the source of the sound."It's him..." They say in a collective voice.At this moment, Amelia holds her hand to her mouth as she fights whatever is in her head. She grabs hold of your leg and will not let go. The mob of people begin to walk towards you.>If we don't move, they can't find us... (1D10, +1 from blind people.)>Time to bolt with everyone! (1d10, -1 from running through crowd.)>1 Crit fail.>2-5 Fail.>6-9 Success.>10 Crit Success.>11 1 Crit, 1 Success
Rolled 3 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>38257015>>If we don't move, they can't find us... (1D10, +1 from blind people.)
Rolled 1 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>38257015>If we don't move, they can't find us... (1D10, +1 from blind people.)
>>38257038>>38257039As expected of home grown vegetables.
Rolled 2 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>38257015>>If we don't move, they can't find us... (1D10, +1 from blind people.)FOR the EMPEROR
Rolled 8 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>38257015 don't move
Rolled 5 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>38257015>If we don't move, they can't find us... (1D10, +1 from blind people.)hear our prayers slaanesh
>>38257068I was so close too slow QQ
>>38257054Oh shut up.
OK THIS IS JUST FUCKING BULL SHIT NOW WHAT THE FUCK DICE GODSbeginning of the quest Nameless is you chosen now nothing
>>38257109 probably mad at people being so upset at the dice systems and bytching they need to be constantly changed
>>38257039THIS IS JUST FUCKING GREAT!---You try to stay silent, but Melani's nerves just can't keep up with this."Oh Emperor!"Melani begins to run into the building, dropping her lasgun and screaming at the top of her lungs. The mob of people begin to rush her, following her inside the building and moving past you. You look back to see that she has been caught by the marines from inside. She begs for her life before the marine rips off her head and throws her lifeless body to the ground. However, with her sacrifice, you can start moving without letting anyone know that you're there.---You finally make your way to Hendrick and his squad. With him are Ser and a few other scouts. Ser whimpers as he tries to feel for you arm. Hendrick shakes his head and pats your shoulder."We'll... We'll get a new one, bro."He smiles sadly as he shoulders his bolter."However, there's no rest for the weary. Whatever you did in there allowed us to move most of the army inside the city. We got our first mission and it's on the way back to the army. We're going to ensure that a weapons depot on this level is either in our hands by the time one of the vanguard squads arrive or destroyed before the enemy can get their hands on it. But, looking at your condition, I guess you want to rest up... And I'll be sending Amelia back to base with a scout or two.">No, I can fight, but I'll need a one handed weapon or a pistol.>I would only hinder your mission. I'm going to head back with Amelia.
>>38257251God dammit, I liked her.
>>38257251>>I would only hinder your mission. I'm going to head back with Amelia.we might as well keep an eye on her, and see if tom can fix us up with some second hand bionics
>>38257251>>I would only hinder your mission. I'm going to head back with Amelia.no fuck helping all we have done is fuck shit up this thread
>>38257251>I would only hinder your mission. I'm going to head back with Amelia.
>>38257251>I would only hinder your mission. I'm going to head back with Amelia.Fuck man we saw some shit tonight. Even the emperors angels need rest, and both arms in working condition.
>>38257333Its been all these shit rolls. We even lost a follower.
>>38257251Wait, why did she run screaming? I tought her forte was quiet whimpering and breakdown under stress
>>38257388i dont remember us having this much trouble with the rolls in the past
im starting to miss "A Fresh Start" quest.
eh trials and tribulations, we'll get through this
>>38257312>>38257333>>38257340Hendrick nods and motions for two of his scouts to follow you as you make your way back to base. Hendrick smiles sadly as he begins to walk away."I'll tell you all about it when we get back."Amelia cries a little bit, but not out of sadness."He's gone... I can think clearly now..."You can't help but smile at hearing her say that.---After ducking through some alleyways and streets, you finally make your way with Amelia and the scouts to the base camp's perimeter. You see a few guardsmen in the building wave at you and the scouts. The scouts pat you on the back before heading out to rejoin their squad. The guardsmen come down to help you with Amelia and yourself. In fact, you feel quite exhausted as a guardsman catches you from falling."Thank you for your service, my lord. We can take things from here..."Behind you, you her Ser whimpering as he tries to caress your arm.---You are brought to the medical tent where a few sisters and guardsmen are preparing beds for the casualties that were sure to come. Among the sisters, you can see Emily. She takes off her helmet and looks over to you before dropping her helmet. Emily rushes over to you and Amelia. She brings you both together as she begins to hug both of you."Oh thank The Emperor that you're safe... When Hendrick and Sarge said you were captured...">If it's all the same to you, Emily, I'd like it if I could lay down for a few minutes...>We're fine here, though you should be with Amelia... Let's just say that she's been wanting to see you for quite some time now.>Stay silent and embrace the hug.
>>38257591>Embrace the HugWe require comfort, for we have lost much.
>>38257591>We're fine here, though you should be with Amelia... Let's just say that she's been wanting to see you for quite some time now.>I appreciate the hug, she needs it more.
>>38257591>>Stay silent and embrace the hug.
i'd like the point out that with the current d10 (best of three), we have about a 27 percent chance of crit-failing each roll
>>38257015Whatever happened to the old system where crits didn't override? I thought we switched back to it after d20s fucked us over
>>38257944We must start on d100s.Either that, or we're the most unfortunate Astarte.
>>38257621>>38257646>>38257696You hear a slight gasp from Emily as you bring her closer to you and Amelia. She giggles a little bit as she keeps on hugging you. After a few seconds, she lets go of both of you and she leads you both to your beds."Nameless, we'll start with you. I'm going to need to look at your arm and quickly replace what I can to get you into shape. We'll need as many people on the battlefield as we can for today."She turns to Amelia and smiles."And as for you... I'm just glad you're fine..."Amelia faintly smiles as she lays down on her bed."I'm too tired to remove my armor... I'll take it off when I'm awake..."Emily bows as she calls over some guardsmen."I'll need these things from the medical supplies. Please, grab them for me quickly."Emily quickly jots down something on her dataslate and gives it to one of the guardsmen. You look over to speak to Amelia when Emily walks away to get two other sisters to help her and you see that she is fast asleep. Then, everyone stops moving as if time stopped."Having fun playing hero, Nameless?"You look to your side and see that it's the inquisitor you saved from before. It's Inquisitor Erickson."I wouldn't blame you, it feels nice to know that people acknowledge your accomplishments. Not that I would know that feeling, it's just that such acknowledgements would allow my enemies to know who I am and that's something I do not want to happen.">Good to see you healed up from your wounds...>Stop it. This has got to be hurting them.>Stay Silent.
>>38257960not realy look into the character sheet at the top we have done some pretty impressive shit that even a champion would be impressed.
>>38258062>Stop it. This has got to be hurting them.
>>38258062>>Stay Silent.damn last time we saw him his face was chard and we were carrying him from an exploding lab
>>38258062>Good to see you healed up from your wounds...
>>38257251>THIS IS JUST FUCKING GREAT!For you maybe, its fucking painful and stupid to read while catching up on this queat
>>38257452Because previously to OP cutting our arm off by switching to D20 crits didn't override the highest result, which made sense and was a good system, now though, for some retarded reason OP made them overriding, which means we constantly have a 10% chance to die at all times, overriding crits are fucking retarded and I don't know why or how OP suddenly forgot the system and changed it to this mess, thing were fine before because we didn't have overriding crits, now though, we do nothing but critfail constantly and it isn't fun to read, hell it was hard enough before when we had no overriding crits AND blessings and rerolls from praying, which we don't have now either...
>>38257960Or we could go back to the original nonretarded system that doesn't have overriding crits...
>>38258272>we constantly have a 10% chance to die at all timesmore than that, and i agree the old system was what made this quest fun
>>38257902This is exactly why we DIDNT have overriding crits before the short switch to 20, its a mystery why we still have them
>>38258349>>38258344>>38258322>>38258272Alright, I'll go back to the old system then.
>>38258067Yeah, we did all that before the system changed...
>>38258369The only thing that was different between the was the crits, which make sense when using D100s, but on D20 and D10s they are just too common to be balanced, like that anon before said, a 27% chance to crit, way too high.I can understand why you might want them, but it's usually best to let the dice suit the quest and be a tool of the quest rather than the main controlling aspect, if people are not careful, crits can become very bad if used too often
>>38258369Thanks for being reasonable and keep being awesome OP
>>38258113>>38258146Gonna go with this to break the tie.---"Aww, not even a good to see that you're still alive? That's saddening..."He walks over to Emily leans on her."It's not like they're going to remember any of this."Erickson laughs as he pats Emily's face. He whips out a cigar and a match. He makes a kissy face at Emily as he strike his match on her face. He lights the cigar and takes in a few puffs before walking over to you."How you been, anyhow?">Better after I had to save you from being killed by your own stupidity.>What do you want, Erickson?>Stay Silent.
>>38258889>>What do you want, Erickson?>You'll forgive my leeriness of psychic powers after what I had to go through.
>>38258889>>Better after I had to save you from being killed by your own stupidity.
>>38258889>you can see by my condition how I've been doing, what do you want?
>>38258992Here, changing to >>38258923
>>38258923>>38259021Gonna hurry this up. Need to get up tomorrow fairly early for a test.---He snaps his fingers as Emily begins to walk over to the Imperial Guard command tent. She walks out with two glasses and a bottle of very expensive whisky. She pours both of you drinks before giving them to you. Erickson snaps his fingers again as two more sisters begin to gather material to fix your arm. "It's a trick I learned while I was still back at the Under City. This way, you can get better a little faster than usual. Now, I have a proposition for you and I hope you consider it."Erickson takes a drink from his glass and smiles."Mmm, good whiskey. Anyways, I want you to make your way to the upper spire and kill someone for me. Trust me, it'll make this a lot easier on everyone here if this person is dead. He has a very notable rouge trader in his hands and with her on our side, she can supply the army here with a lot of good guns. It'll be dangerous and no one can know of your mission... So, what do you say?"You look up at Emily, her emotionless face staring into the void. You feel like Emily and the sisters are hostages right now as you look at Erickson and imagine a devil trying to make a deal that you cannot avoid making."All it'll cost you is the possibility of exile from your chapter or even death... Exciting, isn't it? So, would you like to know more?"Erickson smiles widely as he takes another sip of his whiskey."Mmm, damn good stuff."---THAT'LL BE ALL FOR TONIGHT!Sorry for changing up the dice system again. Hopefully, people like it this time.I'll be putting this up on the archive today.Check twitter for a possible bonus quest tomorrow if the weather here turns pretty bad.GOOD NIGHT, /TG/!
>>38259318Thanks for running! and thank you for fixing our dice! The critfailes were killing us (literally)
>>38259318thanks for running.
>>38259318Thanks for the thread OP, see you in the next
>>38259318So why did you stop using the BL marine for the quest image?
>>38258369I will still miss best guardswoman. She was to fun to play with and tease..
