You still need to figure out what to do.---Erickson simply watches as the sisters begin to tend to your wound. You keep staring at him as he takes a small drink when you two make eye contact."So... You've been quiet.">I've been thinking...>Do I really have much of a choice on the matter?>Stay silent.
>>38816214What was the hard choice? Quick recap/summary of what happened last thread?
>>38816214>>I've been thinking...
>>38816214>Do I really have much of a choice on the matter?
>>38816214>Do I really have much of a choice on the matter? >>38816252see: >>38259318
>>38816362>>38816420"Well, I never said you had to accept it."He holds up his hand as the sisters stop."But, I think you probably should do it. It could help turn the tide of the war..."The sisters simply stand there, their faces showing no emotion."C'mon, I thought you like taking risks?">Not when exile is on the line.>I do... But,t his might be extreme.>Can i make this decision later?>Stay silent.
>>38816789>Not when exile is on the line.>Can i make this decision later?
>>38816789>I do... But,t his might be extreme.
>>38816876>>38816879Erickson rolls his eyes. He takes another drink as we waves for the sisters to continue their work."You know, that silent treatment is kind of annoying. I know it's you and all, but I'd love to have a straight answer out of you."He then smiles."I might even divulge a little bit of your past to you."You get a small flashback of the woman carrying you.>I don't need to know it.>You know about what I was before I was recruited?>Stay silent.
>>38817527>I don't need to know it.
>>38817527>You know about what I was before I was recruited?
>>38817527>Stay silent.why should we break from tradition now
>>38817539>>38817547>>38817571"Oh, but you've always wanted to know, haven't you? The burning of the city, you're... No, you said you don't need to know it... I'll just have the sisters fix you up and have you be on your way."You see another sister bring out a servo arm."The offer is always up on the table, but I need to done before the end of this war.">I never said no.>I won't do it.>Stay silent.
>>38817630>I never said no
>>38817630>I never said no.Just I didn't like it.
>>38817630>I never said no.
>>38817648>>38817673>>38817716Erickson smiles and puts the half empty bottle of whiskey next to you on the floor."Then I I'll give you the details when you're ready for you mission."He gets up and begins to walk away . Erickson walks behind a corner as everyone around you begins to move again. Sara rubs her head as she looks at the servo arm for you."Ah, I guess it's ready. Nameless, we're ready to attach your new arm.">Are you feeling alright?>Then let's get it done.
>>38817805>Are you feeling alright?
>>38817805>Can I put a bitchin power sword on it?
>>38817805>>Are you feeling alright?
>>38817826>>38817833>>38817905"It's fine, I haven't worked on the field in a little while. I'm just getting used to working this much."She smiles and puts up her medical mask."Are you alright to walk to the surgery tent?">Yeah.>I'd like it if you carried me. (Smirk)>I saw our Inquisitor friend...
>>38817960>>Yeah.>>I'd like it if you carried me. (Smirk)
>>38817981>>38818006>>38818096"Alright, come on, I'll show you the way."You get up from the bed and you almost forget you only have one arm. You stumble a bit as Emily catches you."Careful."She helps you up and begins to lead you over to the surgery tent. Inside, it smells strangely clean and you only see a few men on the tables. They look as though they're resting from their own operations."Alright, when you come to, you'll have a new arm. It'll be a while before I can actually let you go out onto the field again, but you need to heal up all the way before I can say you can go this time.">It's fine.>But my brothers need me.>Nod and stay silent.>Shake head and stay silent.
>>38818409>Shake head and stay silent.
>>38818409>Nod and stay silent.
>>38818409>Nod and stay silent.If we don't get fully healed then its just going to cause us problems in the field and put our and our friends and brothers and sisters lives at risk.
>>38818477>>38818489>>38818519Emily grits her teeth and puts both of her hands on you shoulders."I don't mean to be rude, but until you are finally healed all the way up, you are not leaving this camp until I see fit. If you leave after the operation, you are going to put all of us at risk and your Captain Marshton is going to get Commander Balzer to scold you some more. And if you do leave before I give you permission to, I will hunt you down and drag you back to camp. Understand?">Wow, you really get into your work, don't you?>Fine...>Shake head and stay silent.>Nod head and stay silent.
>>38818678>Nod head and stay silent.
>>38818715>>38818719>>38818722Emily sighs and looks back to one of her sisters."Then we're ready to proceed."Emily looks back to you and smiles."Well, when you wake up, you'll have a new arm."Emily begins to undo your armor and shirt. You feel a small pinch in your arm as she begins to lay you down on the table."You're going to feel a bit drowsy in a few seconds here. You'll be fine when you wake up."You begin to feel darkness overtake you as you begin to drift asleep.>Roll 1D10>1-3 Something very bad.>4-5 Something bad.>6-9 Nothing.>10 Something good.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>38818842
Rolled 1 (1d10)>>38818842
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>38818842
>>38818859>>38818864>>38818897What the actual fuck.
>>38818859>>38818864>>38818897oh boy welcome to hell
>>38818859>>38818864>>38818897As you begin to feel yourself come out of the anesthetic, you begin to feel the ground shaking. You hear the muffled screams of the dying all around you. You try to get up, but find that someone is on top of you. It's a sister of battle and she is curdled up on top of you. You can feel her breathing, but only slightly. On closer inspection, you find that it's Emily. She barely looks up from the ground as she tries to smile."G-Good... Even-nin-ning..."You look around and find that you are not inside the tent anymore. Guardsmen run past you as you hear the familiar rumble of a leman russ tank following them. You try to get up, but the anesthetic is still affecting you. You hear Amelia screaming the litanies of battle in the distance before someone calls out her name. You feel Emily grabbing you chest as she begins to cough up blood.>Hang on, I'll get you somewhere safe.>Let me lie you down while I get help for you.>Stay silent and stay with her.
WTF HAPPEND TO THIS QUEST THE PAST 3 THREAD HAVE BEEN NOTHING BUT FAILURE AFTER FAILURE.
>>38818842>>38818864>>38818897>>38818859I hope its dreams and not our operation screwing up hahahaha
>>38819129>Let me lie you down while I get help for you.
>>38819129>>Let me lie you down while I get help for you.
>>38819138Yep, its getting really fucking annoying...>>38819129>Call for a medic or hospitaller
>>38819138and the failures are getting harsher and harsher without any downtime or break to heal or rest up or to pray to get bonuses and suchits leeching the fun from this questwe were meant to be having some downtime now with getting our new arm, healing up and resting, tending to our friends and praying, but intstead we get some shit rolls and immediately everything is fucked up and Emily is dying for no goddamned reason
>>38819257fever dream is still an option.
>>38819129How the fuck did things turn to shit so fast on a single roll that has a fucking 30% chance for a 1?
>>38819291I seriously fucking hope thats whats happening and this isn't reality
>>38819257>>38819300 i think we're just having a nightmare/bad trip because of the anesthetic, but you never know...
>>38819300Actually a 50% chance for at least 'something bad'
>>38819291>>38819328That had better be what it is, its our only hope at this point with our constantly shit dice. If it isn't a dream or something like that then this quest will most likely end this thread with how the results have been with our dice in this situation.
>>38819300crits dont override anymore so its not 30%, its like 12.5% to fail and 2.7% for what happend to us
>>38819257at this point im ready for an ex-guardsman quest which i love the story but the BS crit system angers me to no avail>>38819328i hope so.
>>38819401>BS crit system angers me to no availwe should be back to the original awesome dice system, we were just really unlucky this time
>>38819168>>38819180>>38819184>>38819188You pick up Emily and you find a wall to sit her up next to as you begin to feel the ground beginning to rumble again. From behind, you feel an enormous amount of heat. You look behind you only to be blinded by a blood red orb. You shield your eyes as you begin to see something inside the orb. You can see your comrades all inside the orb, writhing in pain as they call out for you."You can't save them all, Nameless."You look back to see Emily with a sword through her chest."N-Nameleeee..."You look up to see a man clad in red power armor pulling a sword out from her chest."I will claim all souls on this world and you cannot stop me."You feel something stab you in the back as it forces its way through. You look down and see the sword of the Righteous Truth in your chest. You turn to see yourself in power armor, but your eyes are bleeding and the marks of chaos spread on your face. You fall to the floor as you feel yourself falling forever now. You begin to grip at your arm and your chest as you hear your name being called out."Nameless... Nameless... Nameless!"---You wake with a jolt as sisters are trying to hold you down."What happened? His heart rate is racing!""We're almost done, connect the final wire! Hold him down!"Just then, you hear heavy footsteps as you turn to see Marshton holding you down."Connect the final wire. Nameless, you must calm down.">Vision... Not safe!>Captain...>Stay silent.
>>38819470>Captain...>Vision... Not safe!
>>38819470>Vision... Not safe!CHAIKA
>>38819470>Calm down>Vision... Not safe!
>>38819470>>Stay silent.>>38819435no i mean the system in an ex-guardsman quest
Man we really really need to get some time in praying to the Big E and 'Ol Dragon
>>38819470>Vision... Not safe!
>>38819519>no i mean the system in an ex-guardsman questah, sorry for misunderstanding
>>38819489>>38819498>>38819504"Nameless, it's only a nightmare. Are you done yet?"The sister nods and backs up. You suddenly see Emily run up to you."That was intense, all of a sudden your heart rate began to race."You try to sit up with the help of Captain Marshton. You shake your head as you try to rid yourself of the vision."What did you see?"Marshton looks back at someone as he waves them in.>I saw death and destruction. A marine in red armor. I felt like I was falling forever...>It was only a dream.>Stay silent and try out your new arm.
>>38819636>I saw death and destruction. A marine in red armor. I felt like I was falling forever...Chaos is not done here yet it seems.
>>38819636>I saw death and destruction. A marine in red armor. I felt like I was falling forever...>Might be more chaos psykers
>>38819636>I saw death and destruction. A marine in red armor. I felt like I was falling forever...
>>38819656>>38819666>>38819668"A marine in red armor..."Marshton looks back over at someone again and then nods."I hope you have a speedy recovery. Please, rest up while we take over from here, Nameless."You sit up on the table as you can still feel where you were stabbed. Emily hugs you and sighs."That was a bit terrifying. I'm glad you're back with us."She helps you on your feet as she leads you over to a bed."Rest for now, we'll talk more in the morning."You feel very weak and the bed feels like you're laying on a cloud.>Talk to Emily.>Go to sleep.
>>38819786>Go to sleep.
>>38819786>wave new arm around
>>38819786>try our new arm (the most basic stuff)>Go to sleep.
>>38819811>>38819842>>38819854Before going to sleep, you decide to try out your new arm for a bit. It looks fairly sleek, like most servo arms you can think of. You can hear the gears inside grind as you move it around. You try to grab your covers, but find that it's pretty hard to gently grab them as you either miss entirely or you grab part of the mattress with the covers. You finally begin to drift to sleep as you get some covers to cover up most of your body.---It's a new day as you see Emily walking in to check up on you."How're you feeling?">Good, now that I have a new arm and all.>Better than last night.>Smile and stay silent.
>>38819958>Better than last night.>Ask if Emily will join us in prayer
>>38819958>ded killy wit dis new mekanikal arm
>>38819958>Better than last night.>Prayer with her.
>>38819958>Better than last night.time to get up and pray, yep
>>38820020>>38820072>>38820203She walks over towards you and kneels down next to you. She begins to fiddle with your arm and then she checks your heart rate."Everything seems to be in order, I suppose. However, I want to keep you under close observation after what happened last night. Wherever you'll be going, I'll be going too.">Resting time: 5 days.>Pick two.>Pray, random buffs.>Rest, takes a day off resting time.>Talk to Emily.>Talk to Amelia.>Talk to Captain Marshton.>Roam around camp.
>>38820430>Pray, random buffs.>Talk to Captain Marshton.
>>38820430>Pray, random buffs.>Talk to Amelia.
>>38820430>pray, random buffs>roam around camp for relics to attach to robo arm
>>38820441>>38820511>>38820577>Add +1 to all social checks for one thread.>Add +1 to all combat checks for one thread.>Re roll 1 roll.---You find Captain Marshton standing over Tom. Tom grumbles something while working on some sort of radio and Marshton chuckles before turning to you."Ah, Nameless, I assume you're doing well this morning?"Emily looks at Marshton and nods."I'm only here to make sure he doesn't take a turn for the worst."Marshton nods and then looks at you.>I'm sorry for the scare last night. How goes the war?>I wanted to talk about my vision last night...>Is that a radio?
>>38820683>I'm sorry for the scare last night. How goes the war?
>>38820683>I'm sorry for the scare last night. How goes the war?>I wanted to talk about my vision last night...
>>38820683>Add +1 to all combat checks for one thread.>vision shenanigans
>>38820705>>38820706>>38820715"It... Goes, I suppose. We've gained some ground, but it seems that their grounds troops are disoriented by the looks of it. They speak as one and they attempt to fight as one. However, it will be a tough to clear out the lower levels before ascending to the upper hive. Tom is attempting to repair our vox caster to cut through the interference and vox scramblers to tell our chapter that we still live. And, if we all get through this, I will talk to our chapter master to see if we can finally give you your final rites before you are finally given the right to done our chapter's armor."He smiles and looks towards you."Live through this war, Nameless.">Thank you, captain.>Stay silent and smile.>Captain... About my vision.
>>38820930>Thank you, captain.>Captain... About my vision.
>>38820930>Thank you, captain.>Captain... About my vision
>>38820975>>38820990>>38821143"I... I'll talk to you about it when you're fully healed... Until then, I want you to get some rest and do what you can to help out around camp. The guardsmen trust you here, so I want you to bolster their morale by helping in whatever way you can.">Can do, sir. I'll be heading out now.>I'd like to focus on resting for now, sir.
>>38821306>Can do, sir. I'll be heading out now.
>>38821306>Can do, sir. I'll be heading out now
>>38821331>>38821337>>38821427Marshton nods and goes back to watching Tom mess with some wires."Are you sure we can't use some parts from the civilian radios?""Are you sure you don't want the vox to start spewing out blood and horse manure while it grows legs and starts to learn daemonic? No, I'm not using anything in this city. As far as I know, this is basically warp taint central on this planet."You leave the tent as you hear Emily trying to hold in her giggling."Sorry, it's just good to see people in such high spirits."---Getting very tired and I think a headache is coming on. I'll try and start the thread back up on Sunday again.Thank you all for participating in the thread.Check the twitters for any updates. (Assuming I remember about updates or twitter.)Have a good night!
>>38821522thanks for running OP
>>38821522thanks for running
Now that I think of it, with all the warp stuff around, that probably also influenced our dream too.
