You were forcefully implanted a brain chip that made you into little more than a working drone, after escaping your homeworld you somehow got yourself into the Inquisitorial Cruiser “Speculum Animæ”.>Main Mission: - Become stronger and fight the Magus that installed the chip on your brain.>>Secondary Missions:- Take care and protect Lanky.- Restore and clean the frigate in less than three weeks.>>Optional Missions:- Try to destroy the heretical information store on your brain.
>Current time:09:00 AM // // Dies MercuriaToday is Mercuria day…Wednesday in Low gothic. For a techpriest the week starts now, there will now be five days of intense work and sweating efforts to please both the Omnissiah and the contractors, in this case, the Inquisitor Karelia.Slowly you wake up; your bedsheets have gotten a darker coloration after spending the entire night rubbing against the chemicals that now coat your robes. Your movements feel more sluggish and slow as your thighs and muscles have to drag more weight from the newly forged armor plaques that cover them.After a quick hygiene and feeding procedure you grab all your suit and start walking towards the Cathedral, you aren’t tired but having to cross half of the ship and dodge the working and patrolling crewsmen feels exhausting and stressing. It is when you discover the power of persuasion and fear, tired of waiting and softly pushing people away to open a path you activate your mask and cover your lower jaw with the collar, leaving the Inquisitorial symbol totally visible in front of you.You didn’t know what terrified them more, to know that you were part of Karelia’s retinue or the reflection of their own souls. With a whine and a hurried escape a corridor opened everywhere you walked; some people were afraid of your appearance and avoided you as if you were carrying some virulent disease but now those were even afraid of looking at your direction. With your terrifying presence you made into the cathedral faster than you though, just in time to meet the rest of your team waiting for you at ten o’clock.
>>39152915The walk towards the frigate was pretty chirpy; most of them were talking among each other about what they did yesterday on their free day. Apparently Aldric and Titania had some sort of date on the recycling plant; for anybody out of the cult mechanicus that would have been a horrible place to go but for us, seeing the maw of fire devouring the bodies and waste and turning it into energy had some sort of enchant.After us followed a small regiment of servitors, most of them were pretty generic work servitors but looking closely and having some tech-knowledge let you see that some of them were fitted with specialist equipment. About ten were equipped with voidsuits and heavy carriers that let them move and bolt big sheets of metal to repair the hull, others had the most part of their bodies exchanged with data banks and plugs to be connected with a cogitator and work as a massive and mobile hard disk drive or give an extra push yet extremely valuable processing power. Et caetera...
>>39152929>Time until reaching destination: 27 days>Today's time left: 12 hours.Same teams as before. There was a lot of work to do:>1º Team >Void:OpiuchusCetus-68% Explored-30% Repaired-80% Cleaned>2º Team>Living Grounds:FaustParabellum-40% Explored-57% Repaired-23% Cleaned>3º Team>Working Grounds:TitaniaAldric LiquefactioHeracor-70% Explored-15% Repaired-69% Cleaned>4º Team>Engines:Wilhenmina419N||990Eugen-66% Explored-50% Repaired-30% Cleaned+++CHOOSE IN WHAT EVERY TEAM SHOULD FOCUS ON++
>>39152948Easter morning may not have been the best time to run. I don't really vote in quests either.
>>39153129Well shit. It's the only day I can run this, and for me its already six pm. Fucking hell.
>>39152948all teams should explore, we don't need more surprises and the bodies will be getting progressively more rancid the longer they sit.
>>39152948Right,Servitors continue cleaning, we set a few combat servitors to watch the part that's not covered by the gellar field and program them to send a signal to us if they initiate combat, and everyone else finishes exploring the ship so we can assess the total damages.
We should probably search, also if we get the gellar field operational could we cut the affected antenna before we enter real space?
>>39152948>All teams EXPLORE.>Servitors control the non-covered area.You raise two fingers towards your ear and communicate with everybody by radio to explore the entire remains of the ships and inform of anything out of order. There are also special orders for the void exploration team, they will have to fit some servitors with laser weaponry and set a control on the fringes of the non-gellar field covered area. If the fourth team managed to repair the engines completely there would be the chance of activating the Frigate's own Gellar field and add it's own effect with the Cruiser's field, but to do so the engines have to be completely repaired, if the frigate's field activated and then failed it could create a shockwave that could damage the Cruiser's field and leave the entire frigate or even both ships completely uncovered and under the effects of the warp energies.As soon as the orders are transmitted and received everybody starts moving with the exception of Opiuchus and Cetus that are requesting some lascannons from the Speculum Animæ's armory to equip the servitors with.Your group walks towards the working grounds. As you walk by the garage the teenager couple seem to enter into some sort of animalistic mating ritual, they spend almost all the time together and even dared to touch each other with their fleshy organic fingers. It was obvious that they were under the effect of what regular Imperials designated as "In love". While not forbidden among the techpriests being in love was seen as an impediment for work and concentration and thus it was highly discouraged. When your patience ran off you decided to stand between them and cut their physical contact for once."Aldric I want you to explore the Garage fully. Titania, you will go to the training grounds. I will explore the Adeptus Mechanicus Cathedral, keep the vox-channels free yet always connected. Ave Omnissiah."
>>39153440So engine repairs are the immediate priority. Noted.
>>39153440Dammit Heracor, quit Cogblocking them.Also FUCK YEAH HERETEK QUEST!
>>39153440Heracor tell them in no uncertain terms do the dance with no robes on their own time.
>>39153440The couple didn't wanted to separate but your words made them part away and walk towards their destinations.You wen't to the Cathedral because that was the place were most of the dead techpriest lied and the sight of it was something hard to bore for them.Most of the machinery seemed to be in a good state yet neglected, some had dry stains of sacred oils or human blood and a layer of dust started forming on the surface of the panels and the screens; some cables seemed to be chewed too, maybe there were some rat nests around that tried to feed on the plastic. Looking closely on the bodies confirmed this, there were several bite marks on the bodies and even small and brown excretions around. Scanning the quality of the air informed you that while breathable and safe the levels of bacteria and other harmful organisms and molecules were present. Looking around you saw a half devoured servitor. The worker apparently died even before the ship left the planet and since it stood so much time quiet and its meat was already half weakened due to its lack of proteins and vitamins it became a perfect meal for the rodents. Only its rotten bones and rusted bionics were now present on his cadaver. Searching more profusely let you find a hidden armory under the ground. In there the air was heavier yet slightly more pure. There was a magos trapped in there, maybe trying to hide from what was happening outside. Her body was totally anorexic and there was some stale vomit on its mouth and robes. She was holding a diary tightly with her pale and vein covered hands.>Order the available servitors to clean the bodies, including the one of the magos.>Order from the Cruiser's armory flamethrowers and try to hunt the rat nests.>Grab the book and study the reason of her death.>Free action.
>>39153647>Grab the book and study the reason of her death.
>>39153647>Grab the book and study the reason of her death.>Meanwhile order from the Cruiser's armory flamethrowers and try to hunt the rat nests.Also, as an opinion, the techpriests with interesting bionics should go to the cruiser for autopsy, so that the workings of their bionics can be documented and their knowledge passed on as a final respect.
>>39153647>Grab the book and study the reason of her death.The rigor mortis has affected her body as grabbing the book becomes a hard task, opening it is even worse as the puke has reached some of its pages and it doesn't only covers some of the contents but its smell is almost unbearable.On it she explains that she is Monika Apollo. She became the commanding Magos of this ship after an entire lifetime of hard work; she tells how in the years she has spent on the ship she has felt the attacks and raids of several races and pirates and how after every battle she has done her best to fit all the survivors with bionics or turned them into servitors. On her own opinion the more people is fitted with bionics the better as it makes them be closer to the Omnissiah even if they aren't part of the cult.The next hundred pages were just a report of what she did and if anything interesting happened to her, the most catching moments are when a pregnant guardswoman gives birth to a conjoined Siamese twins and she and she turns the imperfect infant into what she calls "A binary cherubin servitor"...Monika seemed to be a good Magos Biologis if maybe a tad open minded and excited about working with mutated or irregular humans.On the last page she explains how she gathered all the surviving techpriests inside the temple to get ready for a last stand fight. She became desperate as the number of Skitarii was pretty low and she didn't believed that the penal guard outside would make it... After her many years of experience seeing the kind of wounds that the enemies of the Imperium are able to make she knew very well that the worst ones are the daemon and heretic inflicted ones. She somewhat felt like a mother with her techpriests and not wanting them to die at the hands of the enemy she simply locked the Cathedral with a temporal lock and spread a neurotoxin that would evaporate after an entire day, the time when the lock would open again.(continued)
>>39153895Well we're pretty open minded too.Heretek and all that, even one hiding it. Like most that have yet to go AWOL.
>>39153895that explains the lack of techpreists. Why are our coworkers so inefficient?
>>39153895When the neurotoxin started flooding the facility some techpriests didn't understood what happened and became hysteric, the Skitarii wanting to restore the order and as confused as they were decided to open fire to impose order with some fear tactics.Monika didn't thought she could see all her "sons and daughters" dying so she decided to hide alone and write the last page of the book while the neurotoxins ended everybody's lives, including hers.That kind of explained why most techpriests lied dead on the Cathedral instead of being scattered like the rest and why some had violence marks while others didn't.You kind of understood her, she lost her hope and did what she believed best while damaging the sacred machines the least. On the other side she killed all her temple and cowardly hid so her she didn't had to see the rest dying.>She's a respectful magos. Carry her out and order a servitor to carry her to a operation table to her bionics can be removed and revered.>She's a coward. Move away slightly and shoot her brains out. Even if she's already dead she doesn't deserves to don the cult's hood and heraldry.>You are nobody to judge, order a servitor to move down there and carry her away with the rest of the bodies.
>>39153985She sadly made a bad judgement call at the time. She wanted to spare the others a gruesome fate, but no one commed her to tell her everyone had made it. She may have already been dead before the ship launched, in fact.A tragedy.
>>39154032>You are nobody to judge, order a servitor to move down there and carry her away with the rest of the bodies.
>>39154032>She's a respectful magos. Carry her out and order a servitor to carry her to a operation table to her bionics can be removed and revered.She tried. She thought she did what was right a didn't know everyone would be saved.Respectful enough in my opinion.
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>39154071>>39154086So does this come down to a dice throw? Nobody else seems to be voting.I'll toss one to see.
>She's a respectful magos. Carry her out and order a servitor to carry her to a operation table to her bionics can be removed and revered.You carefully grabbed her body. She seemed to be lighter than you expected, maybe because the toxin made her vomit herself to death. The lack of proteins, other nutrients and advanced decomposition made her break in two the time you pulled out. It took you some time to realize that her chest was on your hands while her hips and the rest of her body continued lying on the ground, only connected by her intestines. Soon the musk of her entrails filled the room and made you fall backwards from pure nausea. Apparently her organs were exchanged with some bionic ones that let her function more efficiently than that baseline human ones but needed more feeding and thus degraded faster. Even if barely a week passed her interior looked like if she had been decaying for two weeks.Unable to hold it anymore you puked the few that you ate for breakfast, a bland mass of gray paste and some half digested pills mixed with acid bile fell on the ground between you and her broken body.The servitors were not good for this work, her fragility would make them break her body even further in the transportation. You would have to make this on your own. You were now located in her subterranean hideaway, the operation and scanning table were about a hundred feet away.>Roll 1d100 to see how well he handles it. The higher the number the better. I'll pick the best of the first three rolls.>>39154318Sorry. I already started writing the second one because that anon gave a good explanation of why he picked that option.
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>39154349It was mine anyways. I just wanted to break the tie.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>39154349oh joy san check.
am I and other anon the only voters? Can one of us roll again Axsisel?
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>39154349Random anon here, sorry for taking so long. To get here
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>39154424I'll do it.
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>39154349Omnissiah help us
>>39154465Best you to it OP, keep up the writing, what was two is now three
So off topic, What do you guys think we'll have to deal with? Place your bets.>Cultists.>Secessionists.>Rogue psyckers.>Hereteks. (may overlap with cultists)>Genestealers.>Tau sympathizers.>A cryptek is subtly fucking things up because other Necrons aren't waking up very fast.>Other.I narrowed things down because this is an Ordo Hereticus mission, though some of those can cross into Ordo Xenos and Malleus territory. Not the first time Ordos encroached upon each other's business anyways.
>>39154464You come in the perfect moment anon, 66 while not the best roll will be enough to transport her while not shitting our robes in disgust>>39154349
I was becoming depressed after not seeing this this thread for a whole glad your back to posting.
>>39154483i'm thinking cultists, with a psykers thrown in. Seccesionists would require an amry or crusade. we might run into hereteks though. as far as Gene cultists maybe. But I doubt we'd satay there long after. space marines would get called in to cleanse.
>>39154349You need to use both hands and your clawed dendrites to carry her completely. Your left hand grabs her from her wrist; your right hand grasps her ankle and your dendrites carry her intestines so you don't trip on them and possibly get and infection from falling and crushing a half rot body.Your steps are slow and calculated, any non-calculated movement could make her break into more parts and that would be even nastier. You just hoped that the other two or the rest didn't found anything as bad as you.After about twenty minutes you managed to place her body on the metallic table and activate the tubular scanner, soon the machinery activated some rings that started showering her with laser curtains that studied every inch of her poor body.As the machine activated you chanted the necessary activation litanies as fast and loud as possible to please the machine and forgiving yourself for giving its machine spirit such a abhorrent subject to analyze.It seems that the machine accepts your chants and apologies and starts to study the corpse. A screen indicates that it will need an hour to complete its work.>Contact with the other teams and ask them about what they have found so far.>Study her diary more deeply. Try to learn her secrets.>Continue working.>Free action.
>>39154540You were depressed? What are you talking about? I know I'm not your friend or anything like that but anon if you are feeling bad you can ask me for my skype and chat with me.
>>39154650>Contact with the other teams and ask them about what they have found so far.>Get some flamers for pest control.The diary we can study on our off time.
>>39154650>Contact other teamsWe should get a more clear picture of the inside state of the ship.
>>39154650>>Contact with the other teams and ask them about what they have found so far.>grab some flamers for pest control burn it out.
>>39154670Oh no I am fine. I just enjoy this chain of quests so much. I had thought you stopped completely.
>>39154650 >Acquire either neurotoxin or flamers for pest control>contact teams>begin corpse clean up
>>39154817Oh, getting the neurotoxin to help would be good. Less damage is replace flamer ammo with that. Don't forget to wear a mask though. We don't have bionic lungs.
>>39154650>Contact with the other teams and ask them about what they have found so far.>Get some flamers for pest control."Cetus, Opiuchus? Do you copy?"Contacting her was harder than with the rest because of the distance and the environment they were in. It took you a long five minutes and repeating the same message for at least ten times until one of the two responded. It's voice sounded choppy and hard to understand."Y-yes. I'm heading to a comm tower to connect myself and increase my coverage."You sighted loudly but disconnected the mic when doing so. It wasn't his fault that the quality was so bad after all. After another two minutes the conversation continued."I want an extensive report of the exploratory mission.""Of course. The Rust that has appeared in the areas not covered by the Gellar Field have advanced and oddly it seems that some plant life has appeared too. I tried making a servitor shoot at it but as soon as the beam enters the exposed area it becomes unbounded by the laws of physics and as thus becomes unpredictable. I could give you a small description of how the different shoots acted."Your knowledge of the warp was pretty much null and knowing what it was able to do would come in handy."Proceed." You answered."The first laser beam curved more and more until it became a ring of red laser light, then it flew away and disappeared on the horizon. The second one started splitting into an spiraling fractal pattern for a few seconds and then exploded into a flash of light. Third shot; went straight to the rust covered antenna but oddly just went thought it without damaging the structure. Four shot;..."The description was interesting but frustrating. It seemed that as he said those lasers became totally unbounded by even the most basic laws and they just became random phenomena. He ceased trying after the tenth shoot."Do you think that there is a way of stopping its advance?" You asked.
>>39155073"We'll have to get the Gellar field running. That way the shots can actually damage the substance inside the field. But we'll need to repair the engine first."
>>39155073Geller field coupled with a liberal application of promethium
>>39155073"If the Geller Field was activated the rust wouldn't disappear but in theory it would become a tangible constraint to fight."Just as you theorized."Good to know. If the repairing works are ended could you two activate the field?""Uhhh...well we haven't reached that chapter yet on the schola...but theoretically yes."Unless you managed to convince a Magos to do it for you they would have to do it. That was something that you were totally unable to do.With a brief farewell you contacted the second team."Parabellum, do you copy?""Yes sir!"He was as excited as usual."I order you to give me a report of what you two have found and discovered so far, quickly."You liked to be somewhat bossy with him but he seemed to enjoy it too so in the end you were making him a favor."Of course sir! We have explored the Living grounds completely! Some doors and electrical machinery are broken but those are apparatus like washing machines and cooking stoves, not vital stuff.""Good, what about the cleaning. If I am not wrong your team didn't cleaned a lot.""Oh. Well Faust refuses to clean bodies, he says he's used to kill people, not to clean their bodies afterwards. I am trying my best to do so thought!"Faust was pretty mad already for being paired with him so if you confronted him he could even dare to fight you in a rematch to prove his worth over you. Pride was his sin. Not wanting to create discord you let him not clean bodies yet, there was a lot of time to clean after all."Good bye Parabellum, keep the good work. You make both me and the Omnissiah feel proud."The next one was your own team."Titania, any discovery so far?""Tons of armors, weapons and other gadgets. They alloys are pretty well made but they aren't interesting, they don't have any soul nor emotion on them...I could even dare to say that most of those lasgun's metallic frame have been forged by servitors."Before she continued with her angsty rant you switched to Aldric.
>>39155324"Liquefactio. Status on the Garage?""This place is cleaned of bodies, some vehicles need some repairing on their engines or hull but the garage itself isn't in a bad condition."You nodded, it seemed that they both did a good work. As a small reward you connected Titania's rant with Aldric's vox-channel. That way he would listen to her problems and become a pillar of support for her with hopefully backing answers.Sadly, not every team seemed to be doing good. Trying to connect with the last team was harder that with the first one; the silence puzzled you, your HUD indicated that the connection was good enough and that your messages were reaching their destination...After a minute or two your vox messages became rejected, the Skitarius Eugen, the person on the other side of the line was blocking you on purpose. What was happening?>Try to connect with the Cameras and see what's happening.Roll a 1d100. 70 or more is success>Force her to answer you by surpassing her block.Roll a 1d100. 60 or more is success>Go and see what's happening by yourself.>Free action.
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>39155477>Try to connect with the Cameras and see what's happening.
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>39155477>camera
Save anon we need you!
Rolled 7 (1d100)I'll roll for the camera option.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>39155477>Try to connect with the Cameras and see what's happening.
>>39155516>>39155527>>39155642>>39155643Guess we'll have to check in person.
Sorry guys. He fails. I'll give some shitty details of what he sees. He will connect with the cameras but see the feed with lag and in 144p.
>>39155688Just say no connection then.Titania, Liquefacto I'm going to go check on then engine team in person the comms are blocked and I can't get into the cameras. Stay on task and no fornication until you get off shift. If you encounter a threat run.
>>39155477You grab a cable and connect it with the socket on your nape. Soon you see yourself in the cybernetic environment that is the mind of the cogitator you are connected into. As you get closer and closer to the area where the fourth team should be in the connections and the space seem to become slower and more clogged with junk data. It is when you try to connect with the camera that a strange symbol formed by three circles and three arrows that blocks you with an advisory message that informs you that the connection will take you not minutes but years. For some reason that strange symbol is what is dumping tons of useless data and has been obstructing the data buses.Unable to wait for so long you decide to cease the connection. Back in the real world you look at the screen and see that it still needs about twenty minutes to end the scan. Travelling there and looking and what's wrong shouldn't take much longer.With a striding pace you advance towards the Engines. It isn't hard to reach because unlike in the Cruiser the pathways and corridors are empty...with the exception of the usual dead body but empty nonetheless."Titania, Liquefactio I'm going to go check on then engine team in person the comms are blocked and I can't get into the cameras. Stay on task and no coitus until you get off shift. If you encounter a threat run."
>>39155959It doesn't takes you more than fifteen minutes to reach the place. The door is rusted but after pressing the button it opens with a painful grinding sound and some sparks that fly from the joints of the door and from the interior of the panel.The young 419N||990 is on the other side of the large room connected to the computer, as you get closer you see that there is something wrong with her. Her belly is completely bloated and there are some bulbous blisters on her now veiny skin.She's still alive, a small whine coming from her dry lips.>Investigate closely.>Send your servoskull to look closer, her video feed will not be so good and it won't be able to do anything on her except tasing her body.>Ignore her and find the others.>Try to contact Eugen now that you are close.>Free action.
>>39155971>Send your servoskull to look closer, her video feed will not be so good and it won't be able to do anything on her except tasing her body.>Try to contact Eugen now that you are close.Oh snap.
>>39155971>>Send your servoskull to look closer, her video feed will not be so good and it won't be able to do anything on her except tasing her body.>Try to contact Eugen now that you are close.
Hypothesis: the corruption moved in from the antennas not covered into the mainframe, which she was connected to.
>>39156129You aren't totally incorrect. What kind of corruption thought?
>>39156188Nurgle? Slaaneshi as an outside thought. Or it could be undivided taint.
>>39156188Psychic plant-life ?
>>39156188Nurgle, obviously. What with the rust, plants, bloating with bulbous blisters, connection taking years, ect.
>>39156188I checked, 3 circles/3 arrows make Nurgle's symbol.
>>39156287Yep. With variations.
>>39156444Nice trips, Rotting One agent.
>>39156479Nurgle's number is 7
>>39155971>Send your servoskull to look closer, her video feed will not be so good and it won't be able to do anything on her except tasing her body.>Try to contact Eugen now that you are close.You order Morti to advance towards her and to poke her slightly but not to shock her. Just an small study of her condition. At the same time you try to connect with Eugen.Both your eyes and your ears and voice are now out of your body. You don't see what your eyes show you but what your servoskull's eyes record and your ears aren't listening to its surroundings but listening to a buzzing static noise. You feel strange as nothing but your weak sense of smell and touch are the only thing that anchor you to reality."Eugen, Eugen! What happened to 419N||990!?"The signal while stronger seemed to be blocked by something. A strange barrier that nullified your radio waves somehow.Controlling the skull and talking with her was really hard. Multitasking was something really appreciated among the techpriests but there were pretty few ones that could do it without augmentation. You were one of the millions that lacked that ability. If you focused on controlling the skull you somewhat ignored the radio and reversal.Morti was only a few inches away from her bloated belly, ready to poke it softly to wake her up. It is then when the Skitarius answered. "Heracor! Can you receive me! I have been trying to contact for hours!"On the background the sound of her rotors and flamethrower drowned her voice slightly, she was apparently flying and fighting something."What is wrong!? What in the warp HAPPENED!?"Some gurgling laughter filled the vox-channel. It sounded as if something whose mouth was totally filled with saliva or vomit laughed and puked at the same time.You focused too much on the conversation, without your absolute control the basic cogitator installed on the skull did what she was programmed for. The taser prod of the servoskull activated and shocked her belly.
>>39156529The small girl bent her back as a reaction, she moved so fast and in such a twisted manner that her thin and frail shoulders contorted into inhuman angles. Her belly continued bloating until it became bigger than her own helmet covered head, her skin thinned and ripped in the process, at the end it was so expanded that it became semi transparent, some buzzing black shadows moving inside.>Roll 2d100>First roll is a san check.As he is pretty strong minded he needs to get 55 or more to succeed.>The second roll is a dodging roll.As he is pretty well armored and heavy this roll will be harder.>75 or more to succeed.
Rolled 78, 13 = 91 (2d100)>>39156612Kill it! It's a mercy!
Rolled 19, 51 = 70 (2d100)>>39156612Looks like we'll need a new router soon.
Rolled 8, 55 = 63 (2d100)>>39156612
Rolled 51, 38 = 89 (2d100)>>39156612
>>39156643>>39156663>>39156685FORGET DODGING! GET YOUR CHAINSWORD OUT!
>>39156612Did we lose our shield with our arm, or is it still on us?Now would be a good time to use it, if we still had it.
I'll roll dice too. If it doesn't works I will use this roll >>39156643 as it is the best one so far
Rolled 98, 52 = 150 (2d100)>>39156831We did lose the shield. What a shame, we didn't had the occasion to use it at all.
Rolled 98, 30 = 128 (2d100)>>39156612
>>39156853Oh, that's bad. Can we rebuild it later?
>>39156853>>39156884Heracor's seen enough demons and horrors this shit doesn't phase him.
I'll go with my roll.>>39156893Well, if the Skitarii of the Cruiser end accepting him he could try to sneak in and recover the arm. If he's discovered that will mean a lot of trouble thought.>>39156909Honestly, he has only saw two Khornate champions, one Bloodletter, a few Possessed prisoners and a Bloodthirster from orbit. I wouldn't say that's a lot. Besides I think that Khornate daemons are way easier to look than Nurglite ones.
>>39156963Plus this one is a little girl.Kinda bummed now.
>>39156909>"Your mere presence reduces overall efficiency by 13.412%, warpspawn !"
Honestly, it's a good thing we focused on cleaning up first, or this would've been worse I'm sure.We need to regroup, secure the engine and Gellar Field generator, and get to work fixing and activating it as soon as possible. Then we go from room to room, cleaning and securing them entirely before moving on to the next one.How's that sound?
>>39157063Need the engine room working for the Gellar field to get up. This team was the engine room team.
>>39156893>>39156963I was thinking of rebuilding it from scratch, not salvaging the old one.Do we not have some sort of blueprint repository in our internal machine-brain? Because if we don't, we should invest in some extra memory, to be able to build things we have already built once.
>>39157078That's why I suggested regrouping. Everyone left will focus their efforts on it.
>>39156612Her belly exploded violently leaving her spine and ribs exposed, from her intestines several insects appeared and ran in all directions. Some of them entered into the pipes and from the interior of the walls and the vents the sound of the rats and the insects fighting could be heard.The sight horrified but didn't phased you. She was obviously in pain and seemed that the explosion killed her instant and painless enough, besides there was nothing you could do for her now, the damage was done.Several flying locust like insects flew towards you and the servoskull. Morti managed to control the damage electrifying its surface and killing them as soon as they touched her. Before you could react you saw many of them crawling and trying to get inside your armor and under your skin.It was a good thing that you created a fireproof armor not long ago as it seemed that chemical and plasma fire was the most efficient way of cleaning those pest.(Only one)>Try to use the plasma rifle to kill them in high numbers as quick as you can.>Use the chainsword's own flamer to clean you from the insects.>Overcharge the servoskull to generate as much light as possible to attract the bugs before exploding.>Free action.
>>39157140>Use the chainsword's own flamer to clean you from the insects.
>>39157140Flamer we must cleanse ourselves in holy promethium.
>>39157140>Use the chainsword's own flamer to clean you from the insects.>Light the corpse on fire to. Don't give them any flash to use to feed and breed.
>>39157118Remember that the rest aren't warriors but workers. Only Eugen, Faust and Heracor have some combat experience.
>>39157140FlamerPlasma would be overkill for flies.
>>39157196Well yeah. Workers fix, warriors protect.
I'm gonna take a little break to eat dinner. Discuss what the fuck is going on and how to deal with the enemies.
>>39157279I say we drown this ship with Emperor's blessed hand sanitizer. Horus did it, so it works in canon.
>>39157279Does the inquisitor sees everything here as well as on her own ship?Would she send support if we were to come under heavy fire?
>>39157279Well, to deal Nurgle you have to thoroughly remove any filth they can use. To do that effectively we have to make sure more won't just come in, so we need to neutralize their point of entry: the antennas. Plan A is get the Gellar Field running. Plan B is just sever the antennas completely.
>>39157279Inquisitor we have a ruinous powers infestation on the ship due to failed Gellar field Seems to be plagues plant and insects. Requesting Julianus and lots of flamers.
>>39157375We could send a message to the skitarii temple. They'll probably agree without us having to defeat any if there's something for them to fight after all.
>>39157398She said earlier that the ship was entirely our responsibility and that if things go bad, she would just deattach it.So I'm not counting on help from the marine or the inqusitor.
>>39157398On that thought, an anon suggested using the neurotoxin used by the magus. It would be handy to clean out all the pests, insects, and rodents hiding in the crevasses and such.
>>39157456Won't Nurgle's blessing immune them against poison ? They thrive through the stuff.
>>39157477Don't know. It's not a virus or something biological I don't think. It's a gaseous substance that has a harmful effect on biological organisms, so nothing life related. The main problem would be the leftover corpses of the pests.
>>39157140>Use the chainsword's own flamer to clean you from the insects.You grab your trusty chainsword and rev it to awaken its machine spirit and also slash the ground twice, slowing the advance of the insects slightly. With the holy promethium hose connected you push the two handles and let the fire bathe you completely. The parts covered with only your robe offer little to no protection to the fire but as the bath of bonfire is quick enough it doesn't gets truly damaged nor it affects you. Luckily for you its your bionic legs the ones that are mostly covered with insects, you can feel them clawing their way inside your mechanisms and leaving their disgusting eggs inside. Without a doubt you bathe your legs with the fire until they are hot red, the part were they connect with your thighs gets burned hard, you can see your skin getting red and painful blisters forming and exploding from the heat. It is worthy thought as after the fire the sound of the dying insects and its eggs melting follows soon after.For the next minute every step you make feels like striding into hot coal but it also kills and burns every bug you step on. Using this fire walk on your advantage you manage to grab your servoskull and exiting the room, sealing the thick door afterwards.
>>39157279Would our psychic energy detector dendrite allow us to track these things?
>>39157836Some insects manage to escape but those aren't too numerous to make any real damage and fly away. Even with the thick walls the sound of the buzzing cloud of bugs is loudly audible, creating a heavy and maddening noise.You tried to contact by radio but Eugen continued fighting her own battle and she was way too busy to talk.Looking and focusing around you can also see the pipes humming, not all of them thought, some were silent; maybe because they contained something inside were the insectoid life couldn't thrive, maybe it was fuel or the cathedral's neurotoxin, hard to say.>Study the pipes and its contents to see in which ones the insects cannot survive.>Try to triangulate Eugen's location and go towards her.>Exit the radio dampening area and tell the rest about it.>Free action.
>>39157857>Study the pipes and its contents to see in which ones the insects cannot survive.We'll warn Eugen that we'll flood whichever part she's in and that she should get out.
>>39157857>>Study the pipes and its contents to see in which ones the insects cannot survive.then>Try to triangulate Eugen's location and go towards her.
>>39157375No, the Inquisitor's cameras cannot reach into the frigate.>>39157413I guess that for the Skitarii defending a ship and some of its students is reason enough.
>>39157857>Exit the radio dampening area and tell the rest about it.then>Try to triangulate Eugen's location and go towards her.studying the pipes is not too good imo, we cannot be sure of what kills these nurglite insects.
>>39157857>Study the pipes and its contents to see in which ones the insects cannot survive.>Try to triangulate Eugen's location and go towards her.Some of the pipes had a designing label that informed of its contents but most of them didn't. Drilling those to discover their contents was a bad idea, who knew what contained, specially in a place like the engines. You would have to tap them to see if there was a reaction and try to follow the pipes that were empty and see if their interior was designed somewhere.The following ones were the ones who had a label:>Water tubes.Heavy reaction, as soon as you tapped the pipe the buzzing sound inside became very loud. While the Insects couldn't survive underwater they seemed to thrive on humid environments and those pipes could easily carry their eggs or diseases and reach all the ship.>Liquid Nitrogen tubes.No reaction. Those insects froze easily.>Pneumatic Postal Pipes.No reaction. This pipe used vacuum to transport packets across all the ship. They couldn't survive on void but theoretically the insects could travel on the traveling tube and reach any other place of the ship. There were other five tubes that didn't had any label.>Yellow tubes.No reaction.>Lead tubes.Normal reaction.>White tubes.Very high reaction.>Red tubes.No reaction>Blue tubes.No reaction.Some of the tubes were more numerous and bigger than the others but all of them traveled across the corridor and got lost in the distance.Unable to decide what pipe to follow first you tried to locate Eugen. She was moving very fast and erratically thanks to her ability to flight and the locating process was slowed by the effects of the insects on the mechanisms and such. After a while you managed to locate her, she was about a hundred meters away, in the plasma engine.>Follow any of the tubes and try to discover what they content. ( Select one )>Go towards Eugen.>Try to flood the insect's room with Liquid Nitrogen.>Write in.
>>39158410>Try to flood the insect's room with Liquid Nitrogen.Also use valves to close off tubes they can survive or spread in.
>>39158410>Try to flood the insect's room with Liquid Nitrogen.
>>39158410>Try to flood the insect's room with Liquid Nitrogen.Take care of one problem.Then.>Go towards Eugen.
>>39158468adding this to mine >>39158486 if it's possible. The Pneumatic Postal Pipe too.
>>39158410>Try to flood the insect's room with Liquid Nitrogen.it should also cool the other pipes down enough to kill the insects that didn't get far enough.Also we should contact with the others and the skitarii temple while moving towards Eugen.We should get the gellar engine up and running ASAP.
>>39158527Too late, what's important is to quarantine infestation and to inform the inquisitor.
>>39158619I agree. The inquisitor must be informed. We should alert her of the threat before she thinks we have become corrupted.
>>39158410>Try to flood the insect's room with Liquid Nitrogen.>Go towards Eugen.You get towards the nearest control terminal and override the login introducing your techpriest credentials. It seems that the machine spirit is diseased as the screen looks glitched and corrupted. After a slow process the program lets you see the destination and flow of the liquid nitrogen. Apparently it is used to cool down the plasma engines but since those are inactive there is no danger on using it. When the coolant is above the room you overcharge the pipes and start flooding the room. As the time passes the buzzing starts becoming less audible, the walls soon become white and cold to the touch. When the entire room is flooded the terminal shows an error message, it says that there is a blockage on the flow but the truth is that the room is completely full and thus the flow stops and that reflects on the cogitator as a block.The room is now impossible to access, the low temperature as dilated the mechanisms and accessing is impossible and even if you managed to do it you would soon die from the stream of nitrogen that would fall on your body. That room right now is a problem but it is a issue that can wait for now.
>>39159154With your legs once again in a normal temperature you run towards the plasma engine, with every movement you can hear a splat sound and see some insect guts spilling from your joints, it will take you days to clean it all completely but at least none of those managed to get inside your fleshy body, no amount of cleaning or heat would be able to take them out if they made inside your guts and poured their disgusting eggs on your entrails.As you entered the room you saw a plasma engine similar to the one that you saw in the cruiser, yet of a smaller scale and completely turned off. Eugen was flying around in circles and doing pirouettes, a cloud of flying locusts following her close.>The plasma engine generates a lot of light and you were once really attracted to it.

>>39159175>The plasma engine generates a lot of light and you were once really attracted to it. Try to turn it on and let the insects fly towards the burning white blue plasma.>Gather Eugen's attention and tell her to retreat, try to get together a plan.You launch a small salvo of fire to catch her attention and also burn a couple of insects at the same time. She has noticed you but cannot stop moving for now.Running towards the control panel you see a big switch and use all your strength to lift it up. The turbines soon start to spin and electrical arcs fill the room, the bugs seem to enter into a raged frenzy, both because of the sudden lights and also the confusion of the situation that their small brains cannot comprehend.When the great coil tower activates it hums strongly and starts illuminating the room. The confused frenzy of the bugs turn into a suicidal mass killing as they launch themselves against the sunfire plasmatic surface of the electrical coils. The smell of the burning meat of their carcasses melting soon fills the entire room.Eugen lands next to you soon after the locust cloud that stalked her dissipated."What happened!?" You yell over the sound of the buzzing and the dying insects."Somewhat happened to the child! She became catatonic after getting plugged on the computer but since she didn't reacted much after connecting we didn't became surprised by it. We left her alone and I went with the speedy talking girl, then...she had to go to the nearest lavatorium and, something bit her?"You looked at her with a puzzled look, the biggest confused face that your almost expressionless face could manage to make anyway."What bit her?""She described it as some kind of diseased baby. Maybe someone was pregnant and had the child while on board? I DON'T KNOW...FOR OMNISSIAH'S SAKE I DIDN'T HAD MY PERIOD FOR YEARS ALREADY..." She was clearly nervous about it all."Try to relax, it's ok...where is Wilhenmina now...?" You were scared to ask.
Just caught up and dang, we lost our most efficient and my favourite techpriest already and it seems Wilhenmina is down for the count too.Informing the Inquisitor at this stage is likely just going to end with a detached ship, we're probably best off rousing as many fire-spouting skitarii as we can and setting them out to incinerate all and every corpse they can find on the ship that's yet to have been dealt with by the servitors.I also think that we need to set up a quarantine area between the two ships such that anyone leaving this one has DEFINITELY been purified so as to stop the spread of the taint (man I fucking hate Nurgle). It'd probably be a good idea to have someone check over the servitors used for transporting the dead bodies too. I also reckon we should stop using the main ship's incinerator and get one online in the parasitic ship to again prevent contamination from spilling over.The two techpriests working on the hull should be fine so long as they stay away from the corrupted areas but the rest of the techpriests should probably drop what they're doing and form a single large band with the aim to get the gellar field up (as has been mentioned several times already)Is there any particular reason we have to work sensible hours? Because this strikes me as a time that we should just slog on continually for several days until we fully combat the issue.
>>39159622"The...foetus, infant...thing bit her and she ran away. I wanted to give her some privacy, hell I acted similar the first time I got beaten out in the arena, anyway I headed to investigate it the lavatorium and saw it. Bloated and bilious, cheerful and disgusting. I still don't know what that was but it wasn't something that the Emperor or the Omnissiah would accept. The little monster tried to barf on me but I managed to float away from its reach...that thing was impure, I heard that the Sisters of Battle use flame weapons against impure enemies of the imperium and hey, I have a flamer so why not?" She became silent for an instant as if the intentions to make the tale light-hearted weren't working, you didn't wanted to hear it either but it was something that had to be done so you ordered her to do so."The...thing burnt for a good five minutes, even when burning it laughed like a maniac...I can still see him becoming a burnt puddle and hear its drilling laughter when I close my eyes." You placed one arm on her bony shoulder to comfort her."What's Wilhenmina's status now? Is it confirmed to be dead?"She shook her head and then looked at the insectoid massacre that was happening in front of her eyes. The plasma fire becoming brighter by instants."She has blocked any intent of communication. While exploring around I have heard her crying two times but when she hears my rotors she just silences and hides somewhere else."Some awkward silence followed then. It was then when you noticed how tired you were."Where did all those bugs come from?" She asked finally.>Tell her about the weakness of the insects to cold temperatures. And make a battle plan.>Tell her about 419N||990's demise and their origin.>Ignore her question and rest together for a while.>Write in.
>>39159937>Tell her about the weakness of the insects to cold temperatures. And make a battle plan.>Tell her about 419N||990's demise and their origin.Messier then what I've had to deal with so far. Why is it always the ruinous powers?
>>39159937>Tell her about 419N||990's demise and their origin.It's better than seeing it and she's likely going to be seeing an awful lot in the hours to come. Best to judge her reaction and get her used to the notion now.>Tell her about the weakness to cold>Get tracking Whilhenmina. Clearly she is both infected and unwilling to die a loyal servant of the emperor.
>>39159937>Tell her about 419N||990's demise and their origin.>Tell her about the weakness of the insects to cold temperatures. And make a battle plan.>"We need to inform the others and send a message to the skitarii temple for reinforcements. Preferably any that use flamers or liquid nitrogen."
>>39159937>Tell her about the weakness of the insects to cold temperatures. And make a battle plan.Tell her that they also burn just as good as any insect would.>Tell her about 419N||990's demise and their origin.And please turn off the plasma engine before leaving. Workplace safety is very important.
>>39159913The Tomoko techpriest ( As I imagined her ) has died, the Velma techpriest might be dead too :(They had to work 12 hours because I think that techpriests would consider that the most efficient way. One half for work, one half for no-work. But now that shit has hit the fan they can be on the ship 24/7 even on their sacred days.The Gellar Field can be activated yes but that obviously needs the power from the Plasma Engines. Now that they are active I'll give the chance to do so.The Quarantine and using the ship's own incinerator are excellent ideas. Well done Anon.>>39159993Trust me I wanted to launch at you all something different but I couldn't think of anything for this occasion that wasn't nurgle.. Don't worry, there will be non-chaos enemies on the future.
>>39160130Not complaining just Heracor observing he has atrocious luck.
>>39160190Yup, granted, were in over our head a while now and we are so screwed when the inquisitor here's. Also nurgle makes computer viruses too?
>>39160190On the bright side, dealing with Chaos means less SAN rolls in the future. We've seen some fucked up shit and have become mentally stronger for it.
>>39160306Getting nurgled by going on line is some atrocious luck. RIP 419.
>>39160306Nurgle is entropy and he tagged her through the online with a warp spawned disease plague.
>>39160306By the logic of the Warp, those are diseases too in their way, and cause internal ruin to machine functions. We'll also have to scrub the computers once the ship's cleansed.
I'll go with:>Tell her about 419N||990's demise and their origin.>Tell her about the weakness of the insects to cold temperatures. And make a battle plan.>"We need to inform the others and send a message to the skitarii temple for reinforcements. Preferably any that use flamers or liquid nitrogen.">Get tracking Wilhelmina.

Besides It's not a true virus but more like clogging. The Computers are so fucking filled with useless junk data that the processing speed becomes way slower.
>>39160402Honestly Axsisel at this rate I wouldn't be surprised if we got blamed just for all the shit we've survived. We need a break.
>>39160402Sounds good. Anyway, I have to go sleep now so thanks for running.
>>39159937>Tell her about 419N||990's demise and their origin.You looked at her with the most sincere expression that you could make."They came from 419N||990...she somehow became infected and had many insects grow and breed inside of her. When my Servoskull accidentally shocked her her contents exploded and liberated a storm of insects, those flew across the corridors and apparently reached you. What were you fighting before the insects?"She needed a moment to react, apparently even if she was a warrior she, unlike you, was a stranger to death and knowing that the almost mute girl was now gone shock her greatly."R-rats. They where on the vents, one jumped from one and landed on my balloons, the creature proceeded to bite and chew the rubber cover and after I started fighting her a gray tide of rodents came soon after..."From time to time the sound of insects being bit or rats screeching and being devoured came from the vents afar. It seemed that there was a hidden war occurring on the vents between the rats and the insects...there was not true winner but the aftermath would leave tons of dead bodies on the ventilation system that would start decomposing soon and would send their bacteria and diseases everywhere. The ship had to be purged entirely.>Tell her about the weakness of the insects to cold temperatures. And make a battle plan."I managed to trap most of them and kill them all with liquid nitrogen, the insects cannot survive on subzero temperatures, we have to use that in our advantage."
>>39160712"Right, but we have to focus...I mean if we use cold we will end spending the ship's own limited deposits and if we use fire while effective it won't last as long and the elevated residual heat will help the bugs to breed even more. Besides if we froze one part of the ship and use flamers shortly after they will negate each other..." She added."We need to inform the others and send a message to the skitarii temple for reinforcements. Preferably any that use flamers or liquid nitrogen.""I agree, but what should we focus in? Fire or Cold? It has to be one of the two.">Use Fire weapons. They won't be as effective and last as long but the fuel is plenty.>Use Cryo weaponry. The LN is limited but the insects wont be able to advance or thrive on the frozen areas and they will remain cold enough for hours.
>>39160453Do you think I should add more relationship and political moments instead of so many battles? I mean Heracor could take a break I guess.>>39160466Thanks for playing!
>>39152906Curious, how did you get the flicker effect in your OP image?
>>39160733>Use Cryo weaponry. The LN is limited but the insects wont be able to advance or thrive on the frozen areas and they will remain cold enough for hours.Plus most machines like it cool anyways and residual temp drop will help the engine not overheat.
>>39160763Nah its good Its been what 2 threads since our last fight? the one to recruit theses guys?
>>39160733>Use Fire weapons. They won't be as effective and last as long but the fuel is plenty.LET THE PROMETHIUM BURN THEM TO A CINDER!!!!Let's be imperials while we can.Plus we will need the coolants once we repair the ship.
>>39160733>>Use Cryo weaponry. The LN is limited but the insects wont be able to advance or thrive on the frozen areas and they will remain cold enough for hours.
>>39160859Won't it also cause more damage to the ship though?
>>39160786I'll explain it step by step now. My Photoshop is in Spanish tho :(
>>39160733>Use Fire weapons. They won't be as effective and last as long but the fuel is plenty.>>39160763Probably.
>>39160922It may, but if successful, it also allows the ship to move on its own. Which should be what the Inquisitor wanted.Also we need the coolants for the engines, which will allow the gellar field to operate, once we repair it.We should prevent more daemons from invading.
>>39160939After the image is quartered I glitch it using this page:http://www.airtightinteractive.com/demos/js/imageglitcher/And done!>Getting with the answers now.
>>39161023Man, the Imperium needs to stockpile coolants like they do flamer fluids. Those Cryo-weapons could've been just as effective, if not more-so.
>>39160733Fire weapons. We dont know how many of those things are on here. We need to cleanse this whole ship so the fuel concerns is something we should not worry about.
>Cryo weapons.2>Fire weapons.3Flamers wins.
>>39161114BLESSED PROMETHIUM CLEANSE THIS SHIP
>>39161081Well, it has been said that the nitrogen stockpiles are limited, while the fuel for the fire is aplenty.So I took that we could run out of our nitrogen supplies easily.
>>39160733>Use Fire weapons. They won't be as effective and last as long but the fuel is plenty."We have already wasted a lot of Liquid Nitrogen...we will have to purge the rest of the rats, insects and...whatever that creature was with a fire rain."She nodded."I can switch my other two arms with flamer and thus have three of them on myself."The Inquisitor said she didn't wanted to know anything about what happened on the frigate, maybe because her spying powers didn't reached those infected walls and thus she just wanted to have as less responsibility with it as possible."How many flamers are on the Skitarius armory?""Hundreds. Some of the of unique patterns...it is also rumored that there is a relic heavy flamer that belongs to both the Admech temple and the Inquisitor at equal parts.""Do you think we could convince them of joining the fight?"She sighed. The ship was in danger but it wasn't part of the temple's territory and the Skitarii cult surely didn't considered fighting pests as something honorable."Unless you offer them something valuable they will choose to detach the ship and let it get lost on the warp.""If those creatures don't kill me the Inquisitor will if she discovers that I have gifted the frigate to the temple..." You whispered.>Try to access your heretical knowledge and disguise it as loyal teachings.

>>39161516This is the perfect training ground for your warriors. Ruinous powers in the code and pipes, one bite causing a complete loss. Every eye must be moving every scanner prepped. You can't be sure what is where and when the enemy could strike. You say you want to be the best prove it? I survived on that heretical deamon filled world and I was in the beginning a mere techpriest. Imagine who much the survivors will improve from this outing? Who much stronger and more skill they will be. As an added bonus those who fall will certainly die, because of the rot and infection rampant in this zone. This may very well be the best combat some of you will ever see.
>>39161655Is chaos's existence not a kinda secret thing?I think the inquisitor would be pissed if we convinced them the insects were actually warpspawn. And if we do not, they would hardly come fight insects.
>>39161715They said they were preparing to fight the servants of the ruinous powers and hereteks. Anyways it was just a thought.
>>39161655Not a bad try but it's kind of metagaming. Heracor doesn't really knows what chaos is yet, much less that what is doing all this are the ruinous powers, it could be a strange insect infection for all he knows.>>39161649I'll go with your option because it is well reasoned and because it has been the best roll so far.

"My promethium deposit is half empty but the autogun and the lascarbine are fully loaded."Your fuel deposit was three quarters full and your plasma rifle still conserved all the shoots. Looking at your back you saw smoke coming from the plasma engine, not because it was overheating but from all the burnt bodies that were piling on the floor."You will vanguard, your elevation will tell you of what is ahead way before it is on my visual reach. I'll confront any enemy and you will give me cover fire. If I become wounded or die I want you to fly and inform the temple; right now your mobility gives you the most chances of survival of us two."Looking at the clock you saw that it was three pm. Only five hours have passed since the work shift started. The rest would have to come back home sooner today."As soon as we leave the infected are one of us will contact with the rest, the techpriest will return to their respective scholas, we will meet with Faust and inform him of what happened and our mission."With this said she floated above you and went advanced out of the Plasma Engine, the first meters were calm and easy but soon she started informing of the dangers ahead."Cluster of rats incoming!" You stopped the rodents on their tracks with a couple of circular slashes that broke their formation, the surviving ones scattered cowardly."Locusts!"The first time you tried to confront them you ended with many of their dead bodies splattered over your armor and robe, their stinky blood adding an even stronger musk to your already chemical smelly clothing. As fighting them was impossible the next locust gathering she found were avoided hiding in lockers or other places.
>>39162182After about an hour of fighting rats and hiding from insect clouds we found Eugen's dreaded enemy.Not one but two of those bloated sacks of sick meat and tumorous bodies stood in front of us, pus and other sickly fluids pouring from their orifices and blisters. Farting and burping sounds every time they moved or opened their unnerving smiling faces."UhuhuahshhhhAHAHAH!" Laughed the first one with a gurgling chuckle that made its chubby body to bounce so fast that it ended puking when stopped."GHAGF!" Answered the other reacting with overjoy to the vomit and proceeding to grab it with its short arms and stuff its rotten teeth covered mouth with the puke.You felt your stomach rumbling in disgust and you thanked the Omnissiah that there was nothing inside to be regurgitated as you already had puked your breakfast some hours ago. You were wrong, you felt so overly disgusted that even with an empty stomach you ended puking the few contents of its interior, from your feeding port stomach acid started dripping.>Do a toughness roll to see if he manages to stay serene.1d100. 60 or more is success.>Fire seems to be effective. Order Eugen to empty her deposit on them as you get closer and do the same with your chainsword.1d100. 65 or more is success.>Aim your plasma rifle at them and shoot from a safe distance.1d100. 70 or more is success.>Try to run away.1d100. 75 or more is success.>Write in. I'll judge if it is a success or not.
Rolled 15, 87, 75 = 177 (3d100)>>39162493>Aim your plasma rifle at them and shoot from a safe distance.also>Order Eugen to empty her deposit on themif her range does not put her into the area of effect of our plasma fire.First roll is toughness
Rolled 85, 66 = 151 (2d100)>>39162493>Aim your plasma rifle at them and shoot from a safe distance.Nurglings so, I'm guessing.
Rolled 64, 70 = 134 (2d100)>>39162493>Aim your plasma rifle at them and shoot from a safe distance.
>>39162609Good job, anon. The Omnisiah smiles upon you.
Rolled 52, 68, 16 = 136 (3d100)>>39162493>Aim your plasma rifle at them and shoot from a safe distance.>Eugen Suppression fire
>>39162648Omnisiah senpai noticed me?
>>39162493>Aim your plasma rifle at them and shoot from a safe distance.You manage to control yourself, Eugen doesn't makes it as good as you do, she starts floating and flying erratically, focusing your lenses on her lets you see that she has puked too, probably her thin and weak frame has made her lost her consciousness from the lack of sugar on her blood or something similar. She will need to be taken care of but she's not in danger so far, while moving erratically she is still out of the creature's range and her balloons just make her safely bounce against the walls and ceilings so far.You grab the heavy weapon nervously, both for using it for the first time and also because you don't know what effect it would have against such enemies.The coils shine brightly as you pull the trigger and the cannon vibrates in an increasing intensity until it launches its green ball of superheated plasma. The ball illuminates the corridor and impacts between them, exploding and covering both with a goo as hot as fire.They screech loudly and proceed to launch baby like cries as the liquid starts to cool down on their bodies and eats their fleshy meat leaving their adipose contents and bones exposed. With a normal plasma weapon this would have been enough but this one is special, after it has cooled down the plasma proceeds to devour and feed on their skin as if it were an acid and continues eating them easily thanks to their soft tissue and the melting it has produced.With a single shot the two creatures were gone, they needed a long time to die and they gave you a horrifying scene to look at but it was for the best, they had to be killed.Carefully you grabbed the still unconscious Eugen using your claw dendrites and escaped the contaminated area, before doing so you managed to hear a faint crying on the distance.
>>39163008investigate the crying
>>39163008I second >>39163199
>>39163008The crying could come from Wilhemina, she could still be saved. As soon as you got closer to the source she stopped crying from pure fear but there wasn't the sound of steps or so, it was obvious that she didn't ran away yet. You sighted and told her what happened and how you activated the plasma engine. As that place was a trap for the insects you encouraged her to go there since in your judgement it had become the safest place. After that you hoped her good luck and prayed to the Machine God and the Emperor for her safety. With that said you moved away, unsure if she had heard you or not.You needed to manually deflate her balloons and put her under a cold stream of water for about five minutes in the nearest lavatorium to wake her up. After that you explained what happened and let her intimacy to clean herself.While she was at it you communicated with the others."Heracor to the work team. Everybody has to return to their scholas with the Exception of Faust. No questioning, No communicating with the rest of the work team. AVE OMNISSIAH."After that you communicated with Faust's personal vox-channel."Oh good!" He said. "I was worried of going full psycho if I had to stay another minute with Parabellum.""This is serious. Get sure that the workteam meet and exit the ship. We will meet you in the entrance in five minutes. Over."After she cleaned both her crotch and her chest from her own breakfast we headed towards the rendezvous point with Faust. He seemed kind of worried."Wilhelmina and 419N||990 haven't appeared. Should I go and try to find them?"
>>39163008Axsusel is kill?
>>39163358You looked at Eugen unsure of how to approach the topic, at the end and being the leader you were honest and said the harsh truth."419N||990 is dead. We believe that Wilhelmina will soon follow the same destiny."He at first didn't believed you two but when he looked at the duo with more attention and saw the stress and stains on their bodies he kind of believed that they encountered trouble on their path."What happened?"Eugen started first as she had a better relationship with Faust and she was the one who encountered the enemy first. After her tale was explained you told yours and included the details of how some materials were harmful or beneficial for them but that you couldn't study exactly which ones. After it was all explained you informed of your mission, offering them all the weapons of the frigate in exchange of their help.
>>39163358no we will try to contact them when we meet up
>>39163360I'm not kill. Just really tired. It's almost 3am for me. I wanted to end this with the deal but It will have to be done in the next thread.As always 30 minutes of questions, suggestions and critics. I'll also accept thread descriptions for the archive.Thanks to everybody who played!
>>39163446WE try to repair the frigate and Nurgle Show his ugly mug. Heracor is unsurprised at this and fights his way to safety.
Alright. It is uploaded:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Novice%20Heretek%20Quest>>39163480I have used a mix of your description and another one provided by a friend.
>>39163446Do we have blueprints in our memory for all the stuff we made before?Recreating our shield without getting our torn-off arm back from the skitarii would be great.Also can we learn from the techpriests here, once we've dealt with the current problems? Some antivirus software would be great, because we could then try to access our heretek knowledge base.Anyway, thanks for running.
>>39163651No. Those were on the Database of the Imperial Guard's AdMech temple. Heracor didn't built the shield, other techpriests did and installed it on himself. He does know how to create the fake and heretical powersword thought.And of course he could learn, he has been in fact learning since the start of the quest. Learning in the standard sense takes days if not years and looking how his current lifestyle is that would be hard or plain impossible. I agree on the anti virus software though...but remember that no protection is perfect enough.
>>39163759Thanks, that clears things up.
thanks for running, Mang. You're aces
Alright the 30 minutes are over. Good night to everybody!
>>39164108night yo, sleep tight
