The Calixis Sector was tamed during the Angevin Crusade 2,000 years ago over a period of 62 years. It only took you 8 years to turn it into a bloody wasteland. Hundreds of worlds lay burning in the void. Those that aren’t are being torn apart by Tyranid swarms. Trillions of mortals have had their skulls added to the Skull Throne. Only the bright Hive World of Scintilla and parts of the Malfian sub-sector have escaped decimation. But their time is coming. They are surrounded on all sides, cut off from the rest of the galaxy, and slowly losing hope. In the final days of your Black Crusade they’ve grown desperate: hasty alliances with Eldar Craftworlds, recalls of every Rogue Trader in the Expanse, and almost hourly Astropathic pleas for someone, ANYONE, to save them. Yet there is no one. In the eighth year of your campaign, Abaddon the Despoiler has launched his own Crusade out of the Eye of Terror. The entirety of the Segmentum Obscurus is on fire. It is the greatest massing of the Forces of Chaos since the Horus Heresy, if not greater still.And all of that is thanks to you. Over the years you’ve come to realize what the visions of greatness, glorious bloodshed, and destruction were during your “birth.” They were of the scar you’d leave on this Galaxy before ascending to a throne all thought unshakable. Perhaps it is. Perhaps you will fall before the wrath of Khorne himself, unworthy of such godhood. Or perhaps by the day’s end there will be a new chant across the stars:BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GODDESS!Welcome to Khornette Quest.

Like all things 40k, the gauntlet runs from “worshiping the printed word” to “over the top silliness.” Most of the time it’s somewhere in between. Others it swerves hard to one side and/or breaks this model entirely. You’ve been warned in advance.Alternatively, if you’re not at all familiar with canon or want more details on something, just ask!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 or an 8 is a guaranteed success, and a 100 is a guaranteed failure. Best of three rolls when it’s called for, with a 1, 8, 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.IMPORTANT: Your rerolling abilities are gone for this final thread. This is it. No more cheating fate. May the Dice Gods be with you and your blade be swift.Blatant Samefaggotry and overly lewd write-ins will be ignored. Try to save your laments about the Quest ending until the end if you can help it too. It’ll keep us from hitting auto-sage early.
“Warmistress, we’ve entering visual range of Scintilla.”You rise from your command throne in dramatic fashion, throwing your arms wide. As you do your armor instantly materializes and Fatebreaker reforms into a set of claws. Sure you’re showboating a little, but it’s good for morale. “Finally! We end this today! Show me what fight these beaten dogs have left to offer!”A pale sphere materializes on the viewscreen. Even from this distance you can see the glassed portions of the planet that used to be Hive Tarsus and Gunmetal City. After that first wave of attack your forces were beaten back by the combined might of Battlefleet Calixis, the Iron Hands Space Marine Chapter, and the Eldar Craftworlds of Il-Kaithe and Yme-Loc. Since then you’ve relied on constant hit and run tactics to whittle down their combined fleet. Now you only have the damaged Yme-Loc, three Battle Barges, and half of the once proud Battlefleet to worry about. And of those your Intelligence reports most are running low on supplies and ammo. “HAH,” you laugh boisterously. “I could breathe in their general direction and they’d topple over!”“Perhapssss,” chitters Sytili. You glance to your right to see her latest form, a Khornate-Mutated Hive Tyrant strain that she obtained after losing her previous biomorph in the Battle for the Lathes. “But I feel ssssomething building within the Eldarssss. I would ssssugessst caution, or at leassst letting my biofleet move in firsssst.”“She hash a point there lassh,” Con’ree adds from your left. He’s been largely in charge of the Scintillan blockade since your fleet was first repelled. “I shuggest alsho shending in the Boyz as cannon foddah. We’ve taken heavy losshes from them in the pasht when they’ve got all Wearhd.”You rub your chin in thought. It’s an entirely sensible course of action... (cont)
>>39009364“AH YOU’RE BOTH A BUNCH OF NINNIES,” yells Kharn from the deck below you. “WE SHOULD JUST CHARGE IN AND SMASH THEM TO PIECES.”Sytili rolls her eyes and replies sarcastically, “Becaussse you didn’t kill enough of ussss the lassst time that happened.”“HEY. I SAID I WAS SORRY.”Hm…>  Offer the mortals an Honorable Compromise - If they kill each other their skulls shall find their way onto the Skull Throne.>  Fatebreaker’s reality-tearing abilities have never been fully tested.

Khorne Daemonkin and the final KQ in the same weekend. The Blood God smiles upon us.
When in doubt, use the shiny.Writing...
It's safe to assume that the purple on the map are tyrant infestations, the green one orkish incursions and the red one chaotic forces traipse around, right?
>>39009380You turn back towards your command throne and press a button that will send your voice across the entire fleet. Zerimar scrambles to announce you but you cut him off with a sharp jab of your hand. “I’ll spare you the sixty-four title introduction and the long speech. You all know who I am. You all know why we’re here.” You pause, letting your eyes drift until they land on Sytili. “I speak to you on the eve of our victory over the Imperium Dogs not to motivate you but to assure you of one thing. Whatever happens next, you ALL have earned the right to have your skulls placed nearby the Skull Throne.”From there you nod at Zerimar at let him handle the usual “pleasantries.” As he shouts liturgies of your coming over the Vox, you walk over and shake hands with Sytili. “Take care of them, Sytili.”She looks at you quizzically. Then her eyes widen slightly in realization. “It issss time, isssn’t it?”“Indeed, it is. I would not blame you if you decided to pull back the Biofleet.”Her raspy laughter waylays your concern. “Never. We are jusssst asss much invesssted in thisss asss you. But how will you cover the gap? We no longer have the Railgunsss of the Engine.”Kharn takes this opportunity to stroll up behind you and add his two cents. “WELL SHE’S GOING TO FIRE HERSELF OUT OF A MACROCANNON. THAT’S HOW.”You sigh, “Thank you, Kharn. I take it you’re going to be coming with me then whether I like it or not.”“YOU THINK I’D MISS THE CHANCE TO BE SHOT BLADE-FIRST INTO A SPACESHIP?”“No… I suppose not.”You take one last look around the bridge of the Slayer of Raptor. It will be one of the last things you see in the mortal realm, after all. You take in all the faces there and etch them into your memory. But you do not linger. You have a cannon to be shot out of.(cont)
>>39009977The actual ejection process hardly phases you, even though you are the only thing being spat out of the massive barrel (you forced Kharn to get his own macrocannon). As you soar through the darkness of space at blinding speed towards the Scintillan blockade you ready Fatebreaker. Drawing it back behind you, it turns into a sword the size of the Grand Cruiser, it’s length wreathed in crimson flames. This has the added benefit of both signalling your fleet to engage and making you a target for the Eldar.About halfway across the damaged Craftworld unleashes a massive bolt of psionic lightning from one of its spars. On cue you swing Fatebreaker over your head and intercept the bolt. Your blade parts the spell as if it were the air itself, but that’s not all. It tears into the very fabric of reality and begins opening a hole into the Immaterium. The farther you extend your swing, the larger the new rift grows. By the time you finish the entire system has been turned into the eye of a brand new Warp Storm. What happens after that is a slight blur to you. The chaotic energies bounce you around as the Warp Storm roars into life and begins casting a permanent red glow across the entirety of the Calixis Sector. Then there’s a small “pop” and you’re within a white void.“Good luck, Sis~” you hear, a faint whisper.Then you’re before the Brass Fortress itself. Beyond those Brass-laden doors lies Khorne himself. It’s time.>  Enter respectfully>  Kick open the doors>  Demand that he come out to face youYa'll do love your fast track options>>39009958Green's Orks/Nurgle but otherwise you're correct.

>>39009997Thanks for removing the confusion.So we gon' wage wars against abaddon himself? or that purple menace?
Counting >>39010020 as  essentially, so  has it.Writing...
>>39009997You may be here to fight for the Skull Throne but you’re not about to dishonor the being that made you in the first place. As such, you stride up to the doors and knock eight times.“ENTER, DAUGHTER OF MINE.”The gates part, permitting you entrance. Inside you see the familiar sight of the Blood God himself looming over countless skirmishes atop piles of skulls. The moment you step past the threshold every daemon stops what it’s doing to turn and look at you. It’s no wonder why. You are the same size as Khorne now it seems. You’re kinda hard to miss.“HELLO, FATHER,” you roar back as respectfully as you can. “I THINK YOU KNOW WHY I’M HERE.”The very ground itself shudders as the Blood God rises from his throne. Skull piles topple over and daemons begin scrambling to get out of the way. “INDEED I DO. BUT IF YOU EXPECTED ME TO JUST LET YOU HAVE IT…”“NEVER,” you reply. “I SHALL WIN IT IN AN HONORABLE DUEL OR HAVE MY SKULL REST AT YOUR FEET.”His laugh is like the very essence of thunder. It even causes an impromptu blood storm to begin raining down across the fortress. “THEN AN HONORABLE DUEL YOU SHALL HAVE.”Worldender flies into his palm from its resting place against the side of the Skull Throne. He gives it a few practice swings then settles into a form you’ve never seen before. “COME THEN. LET US SEE IF YOU ARE READY.”(cont)
Rolled 81, 64 = 145 (2d100)>>39010412So this is it. The Khorne fight. Because it's a fair fight this is how it will go down:You need 8 successes to win. As does Khorne. Rolling a 1 or an 8 counts as two successes. Rolling a 100 counts as two failures.We'll start with two rolls, so 2d100 if you'd please. And remember, no rerolls.
Rolled 18, 59 = 77 (2d100)>>39010451he rolled an 8^2 uh oh.
Rolled 77, 47 = 124 (2d100)>>39010451
Rolled 87, 56 = 143 (2d100)>>39010451
>>39010463>>39010465>>39010474Seems Khorne's a little rusty. But that's okay. Writing...
>>39010451Huh. What happened to the other guy still in the running? Who was it anyways.
>>39010515Red herring or Kharn was full of shit is my guess.That or Khaine actually ate him.
>>39010451>We get best of threeThis isn't fair at all!
>>39010632Well if you'd like I can make it the first roll only. You'd still pass though with that 18 and 59.I seem to recall people not liking that in thread 1 though.
>>39010662Na, just lamenting father's inevitable downfall.His skull will always hold a special place by our throne, though.
>>39010662That was thread one. This is Khorne. We honor the Father. We fight him honorably
>>39010662>>39010742Personally, I think it should be best of 3 on both sides.
>>39010662Nah. Let's not change now.
>>39010769Inb4 1 win for each side then double 88s for both.
>>39010769I like this option. >>39010772Or this option.Whatever gives multiple people a chance to participate in these quest type formats
>>39010769I would be okay with this actually. Makes it fair and lets people participate. In fact yeah. Let's do that.
Rolled 61, 19 = 80 (2d100)>>39010794So you roll 6d100, we toll 2d100?
>>39010412Two opposing mountains, the both of you remain perfectly still. Then in an attosecond Fatebreaker meets Worldender. So powerful is the clash that skulls are sent flying into the air and out of the Brass Fortress itself. They mix with the blood rain and add to the din of battle. Each attack either you or Khorne makes is met with a counter of its own. Neither of you avoid being struck though. A gash here, a nick there, both of you have begun spilling blood. But you’re just a bit faster than he is for the moment. As he cuts across his body you bring Fatebreaker down and slap Worldender aside. In the resulting opening you take the chance to remove one hand from your blade and punch Khorne squarely in the face. He roars in delight at being struck and unleashes a torrent of blows in response. Soon it’s no longer about the fight itself. The two of you are moving so fast and so powerfully that your physical forms are barely within daemonic comprehension. Anyone watching at this point would only see a whirlwind of red death showering the area with sparks and blood. Eventually your two minds meet above the battle below. It’s very reminiscent of when he pulled you aside and raised you up to Bloodthirster status.“So then, Girl,” Khorne says. “I see my dear brother Tzeentch has given you his blessing. I do not fault you for it, but I would have been fine simply not using Worldender. Then again, I have not had the chance to use it properly for ages, so for that I thank you.”> We’ll handle rolls after each choice is decided>  “Correct” him that Tzeentch is actually Ignitrix and therefore his sister>  Tell him you’re enjoying father-daughter time too>  Offer to drop Fatebreaker if he’s having that much of a problem fending you off>>39010839Well we'll be dropping down to 1d100 (so 3d100 for me) for the next checks.
>>39010884>  Tell him you’re enjoying father-daughter time tooThen>  “Correct” him that Tzeentch is actually Ignitrix and therefore his sister
>>39010884>Tell him you’re enjoying father-daughter time toothen 1

>>39010884 then 
Rolled 72, 57, 35 = 164 (3d100)Well I'd say that's pretty cut and dry. 1d100 time.
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>39011059
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>39011059
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>39011059
>>39011059>>39011097Cross counter! or is it blade lock?
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>39011059
>>39011077>>39011083>>39011097WELL THEN.I'm gunna count that as a tie. So the current score is:Cinder: 3Khorne: 1Writing...>>39011108Both.
So do we tie since the lowest were both 35 or do we win because our second/third lowest beat his second/third lowest?
>>39010884“I’m having fun as well, Father,” you reply. Then, as your two blades lock below and bring you both to a standstill once more, you add, “Though Tzeentch is actually your sister.”“HAH. He can be whatever he wants, even a little girl, so long as he’s not pink like a certain someone.”Both of you fall silent as you each wrench your blades free and score hits on the other. Then it’s back to the Whirlwind. “For the record,” chirps a rather familiar voice. “I have no ‘true’ form. Everyone sees me differently.”“SOD OFF BIRD. WE’RE HAVING A MOMENT.”“Fine fine. Just thought I’d say something since you two can be heard across the Warp.”Tzeentch’s presence vanishes and leaves you alone with Khorne once more. He remarks, “I take it he, she, whatever has told you WHY I’m doing this then?”>  Nooopppeee>  She tried using sockpuppets but I didn’t pay attention>  Yep!
>  She tried using sockpuppets but I didn’t pay attention
>>39011333> She tried using sockpuppets but I didn’t pay attention

>>39011408And lie to him! How dare you you disrespectful cur!
Rolled 27, 8, 4 = 39 (3d100) it is.1d100 again.Also in case anyone's wondering why I'm handling the fight this way - I feel like it'd be a disservice to the both of them to try and describe the level of combat they're engaged in. Like trying to describe the appearance of an Elder God it just doesn't work for us mortals.
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>39011518
>>39011518Those rolls. Fuuuuuuuuuuuck.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>39011518

>>39011529>>39011534>>39011547Yeahhhh he got you this time.Cinder : 3Khorne : 3Writing...
>>39011333You start to reply only to be cut off as you feel an arm go numb. It’s a miracle it didn’t come clean off with how deeply Worldender sliced into it. Your own Fatebreaker reforms into a more suitable falchion in response, allowing you to continue on with your own good arm.“PAY ATTENTION GIRL. CAN YOU NOT FIGHT AND TALK AT THE SAME TIME?”“Sorry. Won’t happen again.”“IT HAD BETTER NOT.”A pause, then you reply, “To answer your question, she tried once. With sockpuppets.”“What.”“Yeah. I didn’t really pay attention though.”“WELL I CAN’T IMAGINE WHY. ARROGANT FUCKING BIRD. SOCKPUPPETS? REALLY?” Khorne shouts. Then he adds in a much more calm voice, “It’s because I needed a challenge. Short of strangling that goddamn pink faggot to death there is none to be had. And I can’t do that without destroying the balance of power. SO, I made you. Moved you along. Gave you what you needed to grow to what you are now.”>  Was it just that? Nothing more?>  Hopefully I’m living up to your standards>  Sorry, could you repeat that? I wasn’t listening.
>>39011695>  Sorry, could you repeat that? I wasn’t listening.as a joke>  Hopefully I’m living up to your standards

Rolled 16 (1d100)>>39011695>  Shiv him while he's talking.
>>39011695So, then, quandry: Either you made us to die, so you failed, or you succeeded too well and you're going to die here. ...do you perhaps have the brain worms?
>>39011695>>  Was it just that? Nothing more?"Not like it matters though" Cinder grows beyond her original purpose.
>>39011820Because he's not going to explain it properly knowing him, look up the Omnipotence Paradox. I'd get the sockpuppets but a CERTAIN DAEMON LOST THEM.
>>39011847I thought I was just being cute, since the post began with him berating us for being unable to talk and fight at the same time.
>>39011864Iggy, why are you the best?
Rolled 37, 68, 31, 51, 19, 86 = 292 (6d100) it is I believe.Let's go for 2d100 this time. My 6d100 count as two sets of three.
Rolled 51, 39 = 90 (2d100)>>39011906
Rolled 63, 37 = 100 (2d100)>>39011906
Rolled 73, 17 = 90 (2d100)>>39011906
>>39010794That's a fucjing retarded idea... Right in Tue final thread too
Rolled 3, 80 = 83 (2d100)>>39011906
Rolled 99, 7 = 106 (2d100)>>39011906
Rolled 44, 14 = 58 (2d100)>>39011906He's rolling rather well. It fits. At least he's not jobbing like Kharn.
>>39011333There were sock puppets and time rifts... It got a little confusing...
>>39011927>>39011935>>39011938A success for the both of you then.4 to 4Writing...
Doesn't strike me as being much point in all the rolling, if we just have 50% odds.
>>39011975What happens if we both hit 8 at the same time?
>>39011995NoHorn becomes the Blood God
>>39011995Then something magical happens I guess.
>>39011989yeah doesn't make much sense when the normal system was working fine
>>39012019The horror! The insanity!
>>39011995Just as planned
>>39011989Yep, it's exactly the same as just rolling 1d100 each and nothing more, there are very good reasons we moved away from that system in the first thread...
>>39011989>>39011945>>39012030He's a god of war. I think that gets him more than his 1d100 against our best of 3d100.I'm assuming though that ELH is factoring in stats and DoF/DoS
>>39012131>I'm assuming though that ELH is factoring in stats and DoF/DoSSo far it looks like they don't matter at all and its just a coin flip, I don't mind him getting 2d100 or something but 3d100 just makes it a coin flip, and not much more then a disguised one at that.
>>39012185Fuck off Barbara. Only you could whine this much about not getting a free "I WIN" button.
>>39012200Who the fuck is that?
>>39012230Barbara is >>39012185
>>39012239What the fuck are you smoking?
>>39012239They're not asking which poster is barbara, they're asking who the fuck is barbara.
Everyone stop. There's no fighting in the fight to be the Blood God.
>>39012300>no fighting in the war room
>>39012200No idea what the hell you're on about but I'd rather not have the finale of the quest and the MC's entire fate left to a fucking coin flip.
>>39011695Another bellow from Kharn’s physical form marks you maiming a leg. He’s quick to return the favor, slicing off your wings as you duck low. “Hopefully I’m living up to your standards, then,” you fire back at him.“SOME, but not all,” he replies. “If you fall here I will have failed to create something greater. But if you win then I was never truly worthy of the Throne in the first place. There is no end to power, girl. Even for a Chaos God.”“I suppose that makes sense. A warrior never stops learning and growing stronger, even if he’s a master beyond all others. Or he shouldn’t anyways.”Relative silence falls as the two of you continue to slug it out below. Given both of your wounds your movements have become less choreographed. What was a waltz of steel is now more a jitterbug of action and reaction. And yet it’s still very much an even fight. >  Focus on the action>  Ask him what it’s like on the Throne>  Offer to cast aside your blade if he does the same>>39012332I have no idea where you're getting this coin flip nonsense from. But it needs to stop. Don't like where things are going? Door's right there. Shitting up the thread because you are finally being given a challenge isn't acceptable.
>>39012370>  Focus on the action
>>39012370You accidently wrote Kharn instead of Khorne.
>>39012370>>  Ask him what it’s like on the Throne
>>39012370>>  Focus on the actionI think they're getting the 'coin flip' from the fact that its the same odds as 1d100 vs 1d100, which is relatively the same odds as a single 1d2 being rolled, a coin toss of heads or tails.
>>39012370> Ask him what it’s like on the Throne
>>39012370> Focus on the action
>>39012370>  Ask him what it’s like on the ThroneTell us your secrets, bestdad
I reckon if we beat Dad we shouldn't kill him, unless he really really wants that, but we should give him a nice peaceful life he can enjoy, maybe something like being a simple smith on a neutral feudal world or something.Though if we don't win then I don't know what to think other than that would be rather sad and pathetic for the end of the quest.
>>39012537>we should give him a nice peaceful life he can enjoyThat's a fate even worse than death for a being of Khorne
>>39012537A better idea would be give him a similar job we will be giving Kharn. Make him a test for future generations, or we could make him a mortal and have him lead Khornate legions to victory against the Imperium.
>>39012564Hey who knows, he might enjoy it.>>39012580He's been at this job for a long long time, maybe he wants a little break before getting dirty again.

Rolled 79, 88, 9 = 176 (3d100) it is.2d100. First versus 55. Second versus Khorne's rolls.Passing the first may negate failing the second if such a thing occurs.
Rolled 19, 66 = 85 (2d100)>>39012759
Rolled 46, 75 = 121 (2d100)>>39012759Here we go
Rolled 64, 84 = 148 (2d100)>>39012759
Rolled 29, 60 = 89 (2d100)>>39012759
>>39012773>>39012782>>39012804Well would you look at that. It did happen.Writing...
>>39012759>>39012773>88Something big and bad better happen
>>39012759Shit I didn't see that 9.Ignitrix, why?
>>39012833Nah, 88's don't count like that as crits, or at least they never have before and that 9 has our 66 beat so its up to our 19 to dodge whatever Dad does
>>39012918Excellent job there.
>>39009349>IMPORTANT: Your rerolling abilities are gone for this final thread. This is it. No more cheating fate. May the Dice Gods be with you and your blade be swift.That makes no sense at all for the final thread...
>>39012370For the most part you return to “you” and focus on avoiding Khorne’s attacks. Continually being on the offensive has done neither of you good. So you change your counterattacks into simple redirections. This, of course, angers the Blood God, his attacks gaining a new sort of fury. But he’s just as injured as you are. Perhaps worse so, since it’s his leg and not an arm. His footing’s not as stable as it could be. All you have to do is apply a bit of pressure in that direction while parrying to send him slightly off balance. It’s just enough to keep you from being cleaved in twain without having to resort to changing Fatebreaker into a shield. Soon Khorne mirrors your attitude. What were actual strikes become mere feints. Neither of you is actually trying to strike the other. Instead it’s more maneuvering your opponent into an advantageous position for a proper attack. >  Stay the course (Ag, 1d100)>  Watch for him to fault, then go in (Per, 1d100)>  Kick up a pile of skulls to distract him (2d100)
>>39012980If he doesn't get rerolls, why should we?
>>39013002> Watch for him to fault, then go in (Per, 1d100)
>>39013002>  Watch for him to fault, then go in (Per, 1d100)
>>39013002> Stay the course (Ag, 1d100)>Khorne>having a faulty stancePls.
>>39012980Rerolling is heavily implied to be Tzeenchean intervention. Right now birdbrain can't intervene, and even if she could, we don't want her to.
>>39013012Have you not read the rest of the quest? There are many reasons why we had a reroll mechanic, least of which it allowed us to go all out balls to the wall crazy, now we can't.
>>39013085Our motherfucking sword is called Fatebreaker, it makes fate its bitch, and rerolling is fate magic, ergo our sword is in reality a spiked D4
 it is.But let's handle the rolls separately. 1d100 vs 53 to start off.
Rolled 24 (1d100)>>39013179
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>39013179
>>39013110>ergo our sword is in reality a spiked D4Thrones sake anon thats cruel
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>39013179
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>39013179Rollin>>39013199Slaanesh his betting on us. I'm not sure how Cinder would feel about that.
>>39013193>>39013199>>39013260>>39013002You notice that while his form is never off that there's something wrong with Worldender. Maybe it's the combination of how many weapons you've cycled through in conjunction with the two levels of strength at play. What matters is there's a nick in the blade about halfway down its length. >  Ignore it and carry on fighting>  Attempt to channel a particularly powerful attack into the nick
>>39013286>  Attempt to channel a particularly powerful attack into the nick
Rolled 17 (1d100)>>39013286> Attempt to channel a particularly powerful attack into the nickBreak it, then set aside our weapon and let it be a fist fight.
>>39013286> Attempt to channel a particularly powerful attack into the nick
>>39013317That roll likely just used up our luck. I bet we fail this...
>>39013346And now you've jinxed us, fuck you anon.
Rolled 22, 99, 63 = 184 (3d100)2d100 then.First vs 64 to attempt to break it.Second vs Khorne's rolls because he's still gunna attack you. Though if the first succeeds I'll be applying a mod after the fact to his rolls.
Rolled 46, 96 = 142 (2d100)>>39013388
Rolled 29, 13 = 42 (2d100)>>39013388
Rolled 22, 56 = 78 (2d100)>>39013388
>>39013410>>39013414Damn. I think we broke something.
Rolled 18, 23 = 41 (2d100)>>39013388Oh bot, Khorne bless us.
>>39013410Who said 13 was unlucky?
>>39013407>>39013410>>39013414Hm. That's interesting.Writing...
>>39013286It takes some doing but you’re able to draw Khorne into breaking his conservative stance first. Worldender screams through the air at your head but you’re ready for it. Even with just the one arm, you change Fatebreaker into a Chainaxe and slam it into the Blood God’s blade. Right where it’s the weakest. There’s a tremendous cracking sound, far louder than any other noise your duel has produced up to this moment. Perhaps the loudest sound ever to exist up to that point. All to signify the fact Worldender has shattered into eight pieces.As Khorne screams in rage you kick him in the stomach and send him flying back into the Skull Throne. It too explodes under the force of impact. Many an ancient skull goes flying from its careful position only to be lost in the mountains of craniums. Suffice to say, Khorne’s literally on fire with fury.>  Toss aside Fatebreaker and start punching. It’s only fair.>  You’re done. Level Fatebreaker at his neck and demand he yield.>  Go for the killing blow.
>>39013634>>  You’re done. Level Fatebreaker at his neck and demand he yield.
>>39013634> Toss aside Fatebreaker and start punching. It’s only fair.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>39013634Goddamn I'm torn between 1 and 2, I'll let the dice decide, 1 for 1, 2 for 2
>>39013634>  Go for the killing blow.Asking him to yield would be an insult.
>>39013634>  Toss aside Fatebreaker and start punching. It’s only fair.
> Toss aside Fatebreaker and start punching. It's only fair.HONORABRU CERMBAT
>>39013634>  You’re done. Level Fatebreaker at his neck and demand he yield.>>39013680You really don't understand Khorne, he values honorable combat equally against raging berserking
>>39013720I always thought of this analogy.All of bloodshed and combat is ice cream to Khorne. Honorable combat is just his favorite flavor.
>>39013720But not surrendering.Honourable combats are until one is physically unable to fight, usually due to death.
>>39013634>  Toss aside Fatebreaker and start punching. It’s only fair.RIP AND TEAR
You do not racka disapwen.So here's the next question. Do you...>  Leap on him while he's down>  Wait for him to get up>  Actually help him up yourself
>>39013769>  Leap on him while he's down
>>39013769>  Leap on him while he's downWhat is the current touch tally?
>>39013769> Leap on him while he's down
>>39013752You really can't argue that at all, thats merely one subset of honorable combat, seriously go read the Code Duello if you want to know how real 'honorable' combat is regulated>>39013769>  Actually help him up yourself>  Punch him in the face when we haul him up
>>39013769> Wait for him to get upIf he can't, he lost.
>>39013769>  Actually help him up yourselfAnd then IMMEDIATELY SUPLEX HIM
>>39013769>  Actually help him up yourself
>>39013783>>39013795Fuck honor. Changing my vote to this because it's awesome
>  Wait for him to get upI reckon that If we try and help him up he'll just get (more) angry but if we jump on him that's asking for a punch in the knee or something.
>>39013769> Wait for him to get up
>>39013769>>  Wait for him to get up
>>39013795Voting for this
>>39013769>  Leap on him while he's downOr>  Supplex!
>>39013814you might want to delete your first vote, to make it easier to count
>>39013903Done. Thanks for the heads up
Pretty sure  with a suplex following is what we're going with.That gives you a free attack.1d100 vs 64 for the flip. Failing means he flips you. It's currently 5:4 Cinder.
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>39013967
Rolled 17 (1d100)>>39013967
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>39013967

>>39014006oh man, thank fuck you're 13 seconds late
>>39014006That was close, anon. Holy shit.
>>39014006DAMNIT IGGYDON'T SCARE US LIKE THAT
>>39014006God damn it QM. Where's our reroll when we need it the most?!
>>39014006Well at least we got that 100 out of the way.
>>39014083We don't need it anon, it was late, its the 4th roll, it would have been the 5th if >>39013989 had his shit together
>>39014135I was making a joke about the fact anons were whining they had no rerolls anymore
JOY! I made it in time!
>>39013634A weaker, less honorable warrior might take the opportunity to try and stop the fight here. But not you. You turn Fatebreaker back into its default blade form and slam it into the ground. From there you walk over to offer out a hand to Khorne.“Get up. I’m not done beating you senseless yet.”He glares at you, going between your face and your hand. “You broke my sword.”“I know.”“YOU. BROKE. MY. SWORD.”Khorne lunges up past your hand in an attempt to get a hold on your neck. Luckily you prepared for such an eventuality, making sure your weight was on the soles of your feet and not your toes. All you have to do is lean back, let your tail handle the counterbalance, and use Khorne’s own momentum against him to send him flying.He collides with the wall of the Brass Fortress, causing the entire structure to shudder. This time he’s quick to hop to his feat. By now he’s a literal inferno. Even the skulls around him are beginning to crack and shatter from the excess heat.Yet he’s also laughing. “COME THEN. WE SETTLE THIS LIKE TRUE WARRIORS SHOULD.”>  Charge at him>  Advance slowly and let him throw the first punch>  Wait for him to come to you
>>39014314>  Advance slowly and let him throw the first punch
>>39014314> Charge at him
>>39014314> Advance slowly and let him throw the first punchThe time has come and yet I don't want this to end.
>>39014314>  Charge at him
>>39014314>  Wait for him to come to youthen counter him
>  Charge at himFUCK THIS PLANNING NOISE, IMMA SUPLEX HIM PROPERLY THIS TIME
>>39014314let him come to us. if possible use fatebreaker claws.
>>39014359THE TIME HAS COME, AND SO HAVE WE.
>>39014434Go home Slaanesh, you're pink.
>>39014475It's light red, sweety.
>>39014475Speaking of which Where's NiceDaemonette?
>>39014517DON'T MENTION IT OR YOU'LL SUMMON IT YOU FOOL
>>39014531He's busy shitposting in the SS13 thread
>>39014314“Well? What happened next?!” demands Ignitrix from her position on your lap.You chuckle, motioning around at the ruins of the Brass Fortress. “Well I’m sitting here, aren’t I?”“But you’re leaving out the best part!”“Hey if you wanted to watch that badly you should have come earlier.”Tzeentch puffs out with a huff as she hops off of you. “Stupid Khornate. Can’t even tell a good story. I came because the racket stopped, not because I wanted to watch! Where’s his body then?”“Oh, after breaking each others bones again and again we came to arrangement,” you reply.“Which would be…?”You smile. “I ‘win,’ and he goes off to fight a different kind of battle until he feels ready to fight again. Then when he is we’ll fight again. In this way we’ll always be growing to greater heights.”Ignitrix rolls her eyes. “You’re totally just copying Gork and Mork.”“Hey it was his idea, not mine. If it makes you feel any better, I’ll let you actually handle chronicling all this instead of writing it myself.”She looks past you at a place somewhere behind your shoulder. “I suppose I had better do just that. Otherwise you’re liable to cock it up like you did MY SOCKPUPPETS.”You shrug and begin to pick up the skulls to form them into a proper Throne once more. “Just make new ones if it bothers you that much, Sis.”All you get in return is a grumble and her whisking away in a flash of blue light. Around you various daemons of Khorne have begun filtering back into the Fortress. Some look up at you with respect, others settle on cleaning and rearranging the mess. In all, the realm of the Blood God returns to normal with a short period of time, proper skirmishes and all. It’s not all that hard managing it, truth be told. You even have a lovely set of Tyranids to go with your Orks now. But what’s really on your mind is one thing: Where the hell are you going to put the bloodbath?
>>39014546heeeeh I remember when his assmad cries where so loud that a mod started deleting his post in the thread. >>39014314I cant wait till we knock out khorne's teeth and make a necklace out of it.
Well here we are. Six months come and gone. What started as a “Fuck it, let’s see what happens” improv comedy exercise turned into a 39 thread-spanning romp of 40k canon destruction. None of it would have been possible without you all. Though we could have done without certain faggots.First off is the question on everyone’s mind - why are we ending so quickly? The short answer is I’m not exactly confident about my health moving forward. I would much rather give you all closure than ending up going AWOL midway through an arc. I’ve already had to move and cancel far too many threads for my liking and it’s only getting worse. I mention this not out of need for sympathy but because you deserve a straight answer. And no, I won’t use something like akun to get around it.On a related note, I should probably talk about pacing and continuations. In the beginning of the quest I was largely fishing around and seeing what you all jumped at. That’s why Ysai took a lot longer to handle than anything else whatsoever. Once that was done I sped you all along best I could, leaving purposeful gaps in time should anyone wish to go back and fill them in. Maybe that’s made things more lackluster but what’s done is done. Also, you are more than welcome to reuse and repurpose characters/settings/w/e. I don’t need credit or anything like that. All I ask is that you remain respectful to the source material. Finally I should address the obvious “What’s next?” After the Oneshot on the 1st I’m not so sure. I’m definitely going to be taking a break. After that I may or may not come back and run a few things. Some might not even be KQ-related. Just watch Twitter I guess, though you will have to put up with Monstergirl-related stuff in the meantime. Fair Warning.That’s all I have off the top of my head. I’ll be sticking around to answer whatever other questions you have for awhile.
>>39014612Chaos Eldar Quest when?
>>39014581maybe add another level to the bronze fortress for said blood bath? I am kinda sad that acerea never ascended to take over pap's place. Also sad we never got to beat the shit out of doomrider because /tg/ cant keep things within reason when dealing with bitch who thirst.
>>39014612Thanks for the amazingly fun ride ELH, and while it was shorter than I would have liked it was awesome all the way through, so thank you very much.Sorry to hear about your health problems, hopefully things get better for you.I'll definitely be looking forward to whatever you run next, so please don't be a stranger, you run one hell of a fun game.
>>39014612Thank you for the months of fun. I've enjoyed all by the shitposters (and some of them were ok). I'm glad you could finish it, even if it was short. Better a solid finish than dragged to death. Get well, and I hope to quest with you again, sir.
>>39014612thanks for the wild ride, I'm looking forward to the april fools oneshot and whatever comes after that, its been many entertaining months since you started this, so thanks and good luck with whatever you do in the future, I know I'll keep an eye out for your works
>>39014612ah that was a hilarious fun story, glad I took part in a few threads. Thanks for the read and I hope you come back around again to improv something hilarious/fuck a setting royally again, now go get well and come up with a bitchin epilogue short run.
>>39014612Kudos on a good run, dude. Possibly the best quest I've seen on tg so far. Definitely up there for most entertaining.
>>39014612Good game, good run and it was awesome Your the best
>>39014612Thanks for running, boss.
>>39014612Thanks for running hope your health improves.
Keep Being Awesome...
>>39014641I have ideas for Kaysis and Sytili but nothing super concrete.>>39014689Just go take over the Lake of Slaughter. Much easier.
>>39015077>Just go take over the Lake of Slaughter. Much easier.But then thats not our own personal badass bloodbath
It was a fun ride..
thanks for running.>too shortthe good rides always end.
>>39015105Not YET it isn't. Seriously if you saw Khorne(tte) wandering over to go take a dip would you want to be anywhere near that?
>>39014612>Though we could have done without certain faggots.But if not for those faggots, we'd still be wasting our time on shit like Acerea.
Thanks dude. Great quest
> What happened during the Lathes> Where'd Acerea go?> What about the Ward Effect?> What became of Wordender?> Where DID that third practice blade go?> Why did the Necrons suck more cock than a Slaaneshii whore?Did I miss any loose ends?
>>39017217Who cares where Acerea went, she's the worst.
>>39017558Jesus christ you just can't get over that can you?
>>39017592Fuck off Barbara, don't you have another quest to shit up?
>>39017667Who the fuck is that and what the fuck are you talking about? >>39017558 has been shitting thigns up every time she's involved because he couldn't get his speshul tiem with her.
>>39017772You seem to have gotten lost.>>>/tumblr/
>>39017772so butthurt, let it wash through you like the diarrhea you are having
>>39017810>>39017827>feeding the troll
>>39017869Go somewhere they might care about your ravaged anus: >>38991624That is its purpose.
>>39015077I understand if you don't want to answer this, but whatever's going on with you - is it terminal?
>>39018027You can fuck off now shitter, piss of back to the cesspit that you climbed out of
>>39017936Not as of yet.As for the idiot who replied to you, he's a long-standing dumbass from the Monstergirl community. Just ignore him. He's still pissed he's banned from IRC after... yeah it's been about a year now.This is also why you should let your threads hit sage before walking away at the end, QMs.
>>39014612Good quest, boss. I like it when they don't overstay their welcome. I hope you recover soon, not strictly because I like your QMing but also because hospitals are great places to catch shit from sick people.
RIP in peace, you magnificent bastard. My loss that I was not part of your earlier threads. May we meet again in whatever hellhole you deem worthy for you.
>>39017706Actually, I'm pleased with how things turned out. ELH used the rest of his time QMing to focus on his strongest characters, Cinder and Ignitrix. He puts so much effort into them and their stories because he's motivated to do so, and it works, and we all have a good time. Not so with Acerea, but you've already heard all I have to say about her being akin to a creative tumor, probably in double.Those drawings I commissioned from Inker were pretty great though.
>>39018103I am a veteran trollslayer and faggotrender, no worries. Get better soon.
>>39018265those should be the names of the practice swords we made that didn't vanish into the unknown
>>39018178I'll take off the trip since it's >blogshit but I've seen shit in hospitals that'd make Nurgle blush.Needless to say, thanks you all for the well wishes. I'd rather you not worry about it though. I was already on the fence about mentioning it but I thought "Eh, it's just a shitty colon. Nothing major." Half of /tg/ has similar conditions from what I've seen. We're all full of shit.Have a cute T-Rex girl.
>>39018103Once again, I apologize for insulting you so a few threads back. I was saying bullshit in an attempt to get a reaction out of you, and some things, like "Can't work outside his rails" and "Not putting in the effort," were especially false. I hope I didn't sour this thing for you.
>>39018468Not at all. I wouldn't be running a quest on 4chan of all things if I wasn't capable of taking criticism and/or possessing thick skin.Admittedly, I know my fight scenes are nowhere near what they should be. Choreography was never a strong point for me. And yes it is rather ironic I ran KQ of all things with that being the case. Shut up Iggy.Future stuff (if I do any at all) will be more dice free if I can help it. A lot of the problems that cropped up I feel were a result of high-power character, dice gods having a laugh, and so forth. Part of that is also due to how BC as a system is but that's more a FFG gripe than anything else.
>>39018599I think you should go Average of three to up difficulty if high-power characters are a problem. That Sytili oneshot was kinda cool in how it was dealing with a low-power character, but even that was overpowered for the situation at hand. If anything, rather than downing the strength of the characters, you should work on making the situations difficult relative to their strength.Maybe make it an "Average of 3 rolls" or something if you want it harder.
>>39018782>Average of threebeen tried before anon, terrible idea, it just does not work, there are many reasons why the 'standard' is best of 3
>>39018782Averaging rolls sucks flaming arse, you just need to construct thing so they present a perceived challenge, best example of that in this quest to date was probably the Rak'Gol when we found and got the Engine
>>39018924RIP in peace.
>>39019044I hope Vern shows up in the future
>>39018599Best thing is to find that fine line between giving your players freedom, and saying "No, Sabin, you cannot suplex a fucking train."
>>39019867tbh, the best thing for me is to actually see a quest with a definite ending. When I see "quest number eight hundred fifty two" (-> hyperbole), I just don't want to even touch it, but KQ (King's Quest, hah!) had a more or less well-defined, player-defined arc and ending. Focusing on the two main chars (Iggy, Cinder) helped as well. Sometimes less IS more and with two main chars, rather than four, the plot got concluded in a timely and satisfactory manner, rather than pulling a Wheel of Time on us.
