So, about two weeks late, but life happens occasionally.Here is Episode two of..ALPHA LEGIONNAIRE QUESTFor those of you who are joining us for the first time, and those who wish to refresh their memory,the previous thread is:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/41111649/In Summary, you are a freshly minted Warpsmith of the alpha legion, named Demernon TeliolarisYour Mission: Infiltrate the Imperial world of BarapadarasoYour Goal: Cause little C chaos and confuse the enemies of the legion in any way you deem fit!Additional Directives may be issued occasionally.Your Abilities:>WillpowerNever once flinching in battle, nor backing down at the nightly poker game, you stand unbroken, a pillar of will set fast>WarpsmithFlash. Steel. Warp-stuff. All are colours in your palette as you craft works unimagined in mortal minds, twisting Imperial, Xenos and dark age Technology together with the power of the warp.>Primarch StrainAll of the Alpha Legion is closer to their Primarch than other Astartes, and yet your body is closer than most. Where did your Gene-Seed come from?>Lets you activate PRIMARCH POWER, adding 100 to the roll. Turns failure to success, and success into reality-bending triumphOne use per threadAssets:>Mini-ForgeThe size of a hand cart, yet able to unfold to a small manufactorium. Useful, if used creatively>Initiate SquadAlthough no Astartes, they are far more than any normal human could deal with. Trained in the Low War favored by your kin, they will be able to aid your designsAdded Loyalty due to your bro-ness>Underhive LairReclaimed hab-block, now with a power tap connected some levels above to a power source unknownContains: lodgings for you and your mencharging bays for their gearprocessors for air,food and waterMini-Forge deployed>One scrap bike with mag-lock wheels

Primarch power was added, now he has a hot date coming up.Do not allow him to fail the legionTheir is an Church One floor above, the single Staff is being..

Good!
>>41426536Stripping of your power armour and donning a body Glove, and then a simple Leather Robe, you decide to take your new bike for a spin.You pack up a purifier, just incase.As you open up the throttle in the tunnel you cant help but smile, the power output of the engine is significantly more than expected. maybe it's the combustables in the air?Soon enough you approach the settlement and slow down to avoid being shot on sight.You cruise up slowly to the gate and spin some solid gold> Greetings there fine sir! I am Demernon Teliolaris, purveyor of precious products to picky peoples, and am here to see what products your people have that they may be willing to trade!He seems a bit Confused by the long words you use, but he gets the gist of it and waves you inside, probably figuring you couldnt do too much damage inside.As you look around the settlement you notice the squalid conditions and general sense of hopelessness, and see that they barely manage to eke out a living in the sewers. They Produce nothing of real value, but have access to some salvage and perhaps most importantly, bodies you could use.One way or the other.Given the Premium the marketplace here demands for foods, you are sure your little purifier could fetch loyalty beyond any sa;vage you barter for it.If a trade option, Roll to see how well you do>Trade it away for salvage>Trade it for some minions>give it for free>keep it for now
>>41426543>Trade it away for salvageMight want to pick a better time. Most of America is asleep at this hour.

Rolled 6 (1d100)>>41426699

bumpin for saving a bad roll
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>41426543>Find the town chieftain and grant the filter as a gift to the town
Hoo, maybe saved. I normally break a tie in the direction of first vote, but I'll give another... 5 min? bit less maybe, before I do that. Either of you are free to change your vote too I guessSorry for being too generous, but figure it's needed for the lower number of players ATM
(shrugs) guess not. Writing for the bad roll>>41426701>>41426665
>>41426543Leaping onto a small raised scrapheap in the middle of the market you call out in a booming voice:> Greetings, Mutants and Men! I Come before you with a Miracle of Technology!>THE PURIFIER!>This handy device, with power, will filter contaminants from the air, soil, water and food that passes through the relevant ports!>And I will quite Happi-At that point you notice the market has turned from a bustling trade hub to a stampede of desperate smallfolk, clawing at you to get to a treasure beyond any before displayed in the underhive.You make good your escape, but lose your purifier and possibly gaining some attention.>Purifier Lost!Well, what next?In town:>See the leader (what for?)>Inspect the Lift>Something else in townBack at base:>Get some more Salvage to build something>Summon a Demon to bind it to something>Fortify Base (needs Scrap)>Expand Base (needs Scrap)>Do something elseIn the Underhive>Clear feral cave>Explore ladder access>Visit one of the other townsAdditional:>Order your Initiates to do something (may have risks, if picking this roll additional d100)

>>4142705889, pretty good!And remember, Anons, you still are in a bodyglove, you took off your power armour. Just something to keep in mind. (you can ask to put it back on if you want)After a half day (as best as you can reckon in the lightless underhive) you come back with a fat load of scrap on your bike>9 scrap units recovered(for a rough idea, costs of some basics are presented)>New scrap bike (2)>Purifier (1)>Autogun x5 (1)>Lasgun x5 (2)>Fortifications (3)You send half of your initiates into the tunnel with orders to recon the area.After several hours of mapping, they have located the primary access for the main purifiers in the area, and many more tunnels leading to unknown localesIt does have a small Genestealer problem though, but your Initiates are confident they did not get noticed or tracked back.>securing and repairing/corrupting will cause large changes to several levels, and will need lots of power to keep running. Will probably draw a lot of attention too.Back at base:>Get some more Salvage to build something>Summon a Demon to bind it to something>Fortify Base (needs Scrap)>Expand Base (needs Scrap)>Do something elseIn the Underhive>Clear feral cave>Explore ladder access>Visit one of the other towns>Secure the Purifier (also, if you wish to ask for help from the towns or order your initiates to help)Additional:>Order your Initiates to do something (may have risks, if picking this roll additional d100)

Rolled 89 (1d100)>>41427218Make another purifier, bind Demon to it and give it to mutants. Screw that ungrateful bastards!

Rolled 85, 93 = 178 (2d100)>>41427322Supporting this with initiates going out for scrap.
>>41427218Well, no rolls for summoning/binding anything into the purifiers, so I'll just go on with making them and you all can corrupt and debase them at your leisure.Those rolls though.>>41427366>>41427322
>>41427346Dunno about specific demon, i'm not much into Warhammer lore.
You send your off-duty Initiates off to scavenge, while you labour on some more purifiers.89, pretty good roll boys.>lost, four scrap>gained, four purifiersGained, 10 Scrap!Current Scrap: 15Back at base:>Get some more Salvage to build something>Summon a Demon to bind it to something>Fortify Base (needs Scrap)>Expand Base (needs Scrap)>Do something elseIn the Underhive>Clear feral cave>Explore ladder access>Visit one of the other towns>Secure the Purifier (also, if you wish to ask for help from the towns or order your initiates to help)Additional:>Order your Initiates to do something (may have risks, if picking this roll additional d100)

Rolled 21, 64 = 85 (2d100)>>41427407>Summon a Demon to bind it to somethingUnderhives and nurgle go hand in hand.Have initiates fortify the base.
>>41427448Is one roll for summoning AND binding or are they separate rolls?
>>41427426He voted for your option, added initiates scouting and had two rolls. So I took em as one for each of them, but none for summoning/binding.>>41427457Seperate Rolls. Summoning is a mix of demon power and the type summoned. So trying for this>>41427448If he rolled bad, would end with a possible non-nurgle demon of possibly much higher (or lower) power than was wantedAnd I'll need anothe d100 man, three actions there heh>>41427448
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>41427491Binding roll
>>41427500At this point, a daemon of a different chaos god isn't as planned, but is still a daemon. An unbound daemon is an actual threat.
>>41427396Ah, and some extra info for you:Alpha Legion, which is our.. "Family" I guess is the best term, is a bit different to the others.>Specialise in Low War (sneaky shit)>Is on the side of Chaos (the bad demon gods) definately, yes sir!>just about every major thing they do for Chaos just happens to be a technical success that costs the rest of chaos way more than it should. Coincidently, of course>First Loyalty, The Legion>Next, Yourself>Lastly, The Gods.>>41427500>>41427448Writing after flipping my pancake.
>>41427569Is that a strange euphemism for masturbating?
>>41427407Recommend at some point we fortify and then expand the camp so we can have more things going on. And also make weapons.
>>41427569Scrawling out Blasphemous runes, you prepare to summon one of Nurgle's Tallymen, to infest a purifier you have made and prepared to host it, to serve as a tool of your vengence on the mutant township!If only you had not sneezed while calling his True Name....21!Interesting funtimes!Well. It IS a demon.But, It's a bit clean for nurgle.>Pink horror summoned.You shrug and stuff it into the purifier. Better than leaving it cavorting around.>66Oh shit dubs!The Demon does not even struggle as it is crammed inside. Most curious, since normally they struggle and fight against the binding with all their might.Perhaps a trick from Tzeencth, Price of Lies?>Purifiers: 3>possed Purifiers: 1(Pink Horror)In any case, your Initiates do a good job fortifying your hob-block, sealing many of the unused entrances and repairing damages in load-bearing walls.>Bonus to defence of your base!>Scrap: 12>>41427620and if you had more forces, you could start up-scaling everything. maybe train some assistants too?>>41427600Don't Ask, Don't Tell Soldier!(also, cooking pancakes)Back at base:>Get some more Salvage to build something>Summon a Demon to bind it to something>Fortify Base (needs Scrap)>Expand Base (needs Scrap)>Do something elseIn the Underhive>Clear feral cave>Explore ladder access>Visit one of the towns>Secure the Purifier (also, if you wish to ask for help from the towns or order your initiates to help)>otherAdditional:>Order your Initiates to do something (may have risks, if picking this roll additional d100)
Rolled 7, 79, 2 = 88 (3d100)>>41427640Toss or leave possessed purifier at the asshole town that mugged us and while we're out, try to convert another town to our cause.Have initiates try to make the base blend in with the surroundings more if it doesn't already.
>>41427672How bad is it?
>>41427640>>Fortify Base (needs Scrap)First fortify, then recruit cultists and if that goes awry we have a nice strong place to defend.>Clear feral cave with initiate support
>>41427694talking about the blending in?with that roll? probably a sign saying NO TRATOR LEGION HERE. LOOK ELSEWHERE INQUISITORSWith a pink edging and neons. Maybe a vox (loudspeaker) sat to deny the prescence of a warpsmith of the alpha legion. Even If nobody asks.dem rolls man!>>41427708
Rolled 52, 99, 35 = 186 (3d100)>>41427745
>>41427750I may be a little drunk, how many dice was I supposed to roll?
>>41427750if you are referring to this one>>41427708Then you only need two.>>41427672this guy had three actions suggested, so three rolls for that.>>41427759Beat me to it haha. Drinking is Pleasing to Slannesh!
>>41427770Yes and this apple whiskey is delicous.>>41427750I don't suppose we could use this and drop the 35 from my roll could we?
>>41427794We can drop the 35, but it IS a tie, so it is broking in the direction of Hilarity( first post)>>41427672Hmm. There is a 7 and a 2, and the post ends in 72. Bit of a stretch for a bonus?Writing!
>>41427672You load up your Purifiers, with the possessed one disguised among the normal ones, and head off to the Mutant town to give them a "Gift", the Fewls!However as you try to explain to the gate guard you bear a gift he becomes incensed>The town has been rioting since your last visit, asshat! Get out of here! Your last machine doesn't even work, and probably didn't before it was trod on!Well, That was a bust. Maybe some covert deployment? Or waiting till they see the benefits of your work and they come crawling to you, begging.The Next town is more receptive, although it is furthest from your base and seems to have nothing special about it. They say that in return for three purifiers, and their maintenance, they will provide 20 workers to you for as long as the machines operate, although their upkeep shall be your responsibility.On your return to your base you come to a halt down an ancient alleyway near your base. there is a strange flashing coming from around the corner. Too quiet for lasfire, maybe some kind of fault lighting?>Your Initiates have installed a flashing neon sign outside your base, declaring it the workshop and residence of "Demernon Teliolaris, Grandmaster of the Resurgent Gear"Cute>Your base now DRAWS attention. could be a good thing if you want to take a more proactive role, but could be unwanted attention too.

>>41427978Build a few more purifiers for us and for fucks sake, undo what the initiates did.If we have one, make the initiates reread the entire book on alpha legion stealth or similar.How many rolls, 2 or 3?
Rolled 31, 95 = 126 (2d100)>>41427978>>Get some more Salvage to build somethingWe are going to need more purifiers>>Secure the Purifier (also, if you wish to ask for help from the towns or order your initiates to help)>>Did you make the deal with the second town?>If so, do you play it straight of slip in the possessed filter?Play it straight, we want a positive reputation before we start throwing demons around.Use the possessed one back home to support the workers they provide.
>>41428009Forgot to say that we keep the possessed one.>>41428017It'd be better to keep our workforce relatively clean and use the possessed one as a tool of destruction/subversion from within towns we target for destruction.
>>41428026Keep our own initiates away from that possessed purifier, we don't need too much insanity in the core ranks.Having it influence random hobos is fine, makes them easier to convert, I would hope.
>>41428047It could make them into psykers, but more likely saddle them with unhelpful mutations and shit.
>>41428009two rolls for that>>41428017and are you taking your initiates or asking some of the towns for help?
Rolled 68, 69 = 137 (2d100)>>41428071Rolls for >>41428009
>>41428084and did you accept the offer from the town?
>>41428071Ask them for help.>>41428055Chaos influence makes you more chaosy and thus more likely to turn into chaos. Side effects among the common rabble are irrelevant.Chaos armies (even lost and the damned) generally consist of a a core force, an elite force and rabble.The elite are in command, the core keeps things running and the rabble are fodder/tarpit.
>>41428102Yes, without giving the possessed one.
>>41428114Well thought out, but there were only two votes in this section, and the first one was....>>41428009Before you even get inside you are already marching up the sheer face of your base, mag boots clunking on the facade, and rip off the sign with a twist of your torso. It seems understanding shear points and other things make destroying machinery fairly easy.With the new workers set to arrive soon, you quickly set to work on making additional purifiers for your base, and by the days end have 4Scrap: 8>3 Spare purifiers, one possessed by a pink horror>Oh shit it's Ecengi Having's Big Day!It seems like only yesterday you were introduced, but now he is all grown up and corrupting servants of the Emperor into sins of the flesh.>ROLL WITH ALL YOUR HEARTS BOYSAnd remember, you still have the Primarch Power in reserve...

Rolled 98 (1d100)>>41428208Having it in reserve is good for when we need to use it on things we can't undo or are important.
>>41428221Or you know, when shit like that happens. I vote for primarch power on that because it worked so well last time.
>>41428221>>41428230Noice. If no-one countermands I'll roll with it, ahaAnd the other actions?
Rolled 84, 74 = 158 (2d100)>>41428294I'll wait on someone else since I can't really think of any at the moment besides making something to let Ecengi get up and down faster/easier.Probably send the other initiates to oversee scrap collection.

>>41428323Got a bike for that, heh. I'll roll your rolls into this roll>>41428339Writing time!Oh god, this Initiate.98+100Oh it's sneaky stuff, and last interaction with her tottalled to over 200 as well.218 total.Dis Guy. Maybe I should make it initiate quest where he just seduces everything? including inanimate object, orks, tyranids and necrons?
>>41428379You give Ecengi the keys to the bike and wink.>Don't fail the legion, Initiate, and remember...You grin as you toss him a box>The Emperor protects, hahaha!You give him directions to a less wrecked building on this floor you know to have SOME power, and quickly give it a renovation while he picks up his date.You blitz over the area with some Initiates, shoving everything aside frantically into other rooms, before moving the better furniture into a side room and decorating with the better wrecks. In the back you unwrap your Legion Ration packs, normally considered a fate worse than death, since they are superior to anything local you would find. You pull a small Amasec bottle out of your supplies you has stashed for a special occasion, and with a moments hesitation, fortify it with some industrial Promethium distillate.Not Enough, with a growl you smash your hand into the warp, forgoing the normal protections in your haste, and drag a demonette out with your free hand before breaking its spine on your knee and wringing its juices into the bottle as well before it fades back into the warp.Your Initiate is not going to fail tonight!As you hear a bike pull up outside, you instruct your other initiates to serve him, and sit at a table in the corner, holding a newspaper in front of you (although it does have some unsuspicious eye-holes cut in it), and prepare to spy on your minions date with the local priestess, Xandra Samara
>>41428476Forgot Picture hahaCont.The meal goes well, with him charming her with consummate skill you admit is beyond your ability.You listen in eagerly, for intel purposes of course, and discover she originally wanted to join the Mechanicus, but her family were against it, being Monodominant Puritans to the core. As they begin on the desert, and start to open the Amasec, she does esquire who the figure is behind the newspaper. Oops.With a sudden jolt, you stand up and follow legion deception 101, deny everything, especially unrelated or false things.>I am most certainly not this young mans Father, and am definitely NOT spying on this date to make sure you do not rip out his heart like the last girl he dated!>Excuse me while I go elsewhere to do things, away from the young man here who is not my son, although he is admittedly quite attractive, wealthy and has a caring heart damaged by previous relationships.>That is all! I go now to build all the things!There, that should confuse her long enough for the amasec to work it's magic.
>>41428542Cont.Having embarrassed your Initiate, you set out to make enquiries at the towns for some guards, and you get the following offersTown 1 (Upper access)2 Guards for 4 days per scrap unitTown 2 (current agreement)two more Purifiers for 10 guards, same upkeep dealTown 3 (Mutant town)8 Mutant Guards for 4 days per 3 scrap20 Mutant Guards for 3 purifiers, with an upkeep deal as well.All guards come with autoguns and will need purifiers in place at your base to support themOn returning to your base you manage to get a basic firing range set up, nothing fancy though. And it may have some windows behind it, but hey, these autoguns shouldn't be able to pierce them.Workers pull in 10 scrap units.Total Scrap: 16Make the call on which (if any deals to take, roll for making more purifiers if you need em, and then I'll archive and call it a night.Thanks for playing /tg/entlemen!
>>41428643Ah, and Xandra Heard your talk of building things and asked her new lover the next afternoon about learning more. An assistant would be useful, but she is still rooted in the Imperial Cult.Actions/Suggestions?
>>41428643How big are these towns again?>>41428662Keep quiet about everything chaos related.What timezone are you in?
>>41428678Ausfag heretowns are hard to get a concrete number on due to squallid conditions, but probably around a thousand in each, give or take a few hundred.And is that a take her on as an assistant?
>>41428542>>Excuse me while I go elsewhere to do things, away from the young man here who is not my son, although he is admittedly quite attractive, wealthy and has a caring heart damaged by previous relationships.>Town 1 (Upper access)>2 Guards for 4 days per scrap unitHow much is our current stable scrap income? I'd take a third of that in guards.If >Workers pull in 10 scrap units.is correct, I'd take 6 guards.Install enough support infrastructure to keep everything running, of course.>Ah, and Xandra Heard your talk of building things and asked her new lover the next afternoon about learning more. An assistant would be useful, but she is still rooted in the Imperial Cult.Actions/Suggestions?We are looking to use our technical skills to set up an enterprise down here, selling essential living supplies at affordable prices to the locals. Or so the cover story goes.
>>41428762Probably get some guards in exchange for more purifiers and probably start making a small stock of 6 or so.No, she isn't corrupted enough yet.
>>41428789>>41428801Well, time to tidy up!You hire 6 Guards from the first town, install one of your spare purifiers in your hab block and tell Ecengi to give her the run-around until he feels her loyalty shifting.>Scrap: 13+7 a day-3 every 4 days>20 Workers>6 Guards>10 Initiates>36/40 capacity>3 spare purifiersone with resident Pink Horror>One Bike>Dodgy Shooting Range>Basic BarricadesHmmm. As you plug in the latest purifier, the lights dim momentarily. Looks like you are approaching the safety cut-off for this conduit. Going to need to find another and reroute it or gain access to the generator and re-task more power to your floor.Good Night, and hope you enjoyed!
