>>62773019This sounds like Alfabusas 'Shadow over the Immateriums' but as a greentext thread. Do continue...
>>62773044>>62773156Kinda. I was asked to make the thread for other purposes, but so you won't go empty handed, here are a couple stories (Which are actually official)Last night I dreamt of the tower again. I stood on its pinnacle and I felt the wind on my face. I watched the darkness spreading as the storm rose. My face was turned to the oncoming storm and I could not look away. The world shook and the stars were lost as the lightning struck. I saw in that flash that the world was turned to a pale thing over which clammy shapes crawled, their eyes lidless and black, but they cried out with the voices I knew.The world grew darker with every peal of thunder. As always, I first saw him in the distance- A far away silhouette of a man unmoving, cut out of the sky, made bright by the lightning flash. The thunderclaps came faster, like measured and monstrous steps, and with every flash of lightning the man was nearer. With the pace of a beating heart he drew closer and I could see his eyes. They were dark and filled with the stars stolen from the sky.Each night I wake later and he is nearer to me than when I woke on the previous night. Last night he advanced to the foot of the tower.
>>62773183Within mine own heart a blackness festers and no dawn shall radiate its clean wash over me. I script this missive in trust that mine own soul shall be taken into the arms of the most Holy Emperor regardless of the sins of mine eyes, tongue, and inked fingers. Forgive me.First in dreams it came. Twisting mine own thoughts of fancy into deep sinful pools of nothingness. Visages of corruption, turning thought upon thought, calling- announcing. A personal herald of woe. Night upon day it returned to burn my mind, engulfing colour with darkness, and within, an unholy white light targeted at mine own soul. The clutch of terror bequiled me, and I had no thought to mine life or mine work.On the sixth day, I awoke ragged and unwashed. A pressing weight removed from mine mind- I felt the departure of the herald. I climbed from my chambers to the world without, expectant of normality, yet no normal world had I stumbled upon. Unclean vision filled mine eyes. A gauzy haze of unholy light filtered mine vision, and I was unable to distinquish form or face. Cries of horror were about me, and it seemed the people shared my condition- a mass of unworthy sinners, cast down in to a torrent of fear and damnation.My senses returning, I dragged mine self back to mine chambers, needing to fend off a multitude of assailants with rocks and blows, until I made it through mine door and bolted it firm. Soon the clamour began and the door shook.They surround me now. Are they mine own friends? I know not. Their form is disfigured and unclear; a gaudy whiteness obscures their visages. I am undone. The herald has returned. I hear his mocking laugh and it is mine own.

>>62773019T'was a midnight dreary, atleast according to my theory, for you see, in the warp, time is bizarre.Yet it was my closest reckon, for my abode, upon inspection, was quite dark, whilst I enjoyed my cigar.Yet a strange wind blew within, the iron halls wherein, those mortal slaves would feel their skin begin to crawl. And upon the wind I heard, the whisper of a word, and I thought to myself, how can this be? For here I sit alone, a lord of Iron on his throne, and yet I hear the words in such an alluring tone."Calixis, Calixis, Calixis" I do hear, and it is quite queer that such a name would be brought to the fore. Yet while I pondered it's meaning, I would hear, distant keening from the helm of Corax's sons. "IRON WHORE!"With a sigh of my remit, I can see this is it, and turn to face the helm of my long dead foe. Yet even in relation to his glorious decapitation, he lives on to vex me with a further cry of "IRON WHORE!""Be silent, you foolish shrike, your words are just as like, a spike that delves into my mind. I cannot engage in play, and waste away the day, for I must learn more of this Calixis, whatever it may be.""TIS A SECTOR! A PLACE"The black clad helm screams, and I can only sit and dream, on how it would have gotten such knowledge. Yet I do not care to admit, that with such a wit, I am thankful to have this riddle partially solved. "Indeed if it be, then I shall order with such glee, the armament of my bitter kin. And indeed if this is worth, a fair bit of mirth, then Calixis shall soon find the Iron Without, Iron Within!"So I stormed from my room, to announce with a boom, that we shall arm and take to the sky. Upon the vessel, Bitter End, I shall go with my friends, and if any stand against, they shall so face us an die.Yet I do not hear the laughter, that soon echoes after, I depart on my merry warpath. It comes from the cap of the raven guard who'll yap, incessantly, as he cries "PREPARE FOR A BLOODBATH!"

>>62773019As I sit within my ship, for what will be a boring trip, no doubt, I can only try to stay entertained.Thus, to help me keep amused, with a little devious ruse, I summon forth some crewman, before having them chained.Now stand we, my companions and me, to play a game of "Splatterball."For you can obviously guess, this game makes quite a mess, as we throw these cultists as hard as we can at the wall.Yet, a noise draws my attention, the slaves give a sigh at this prevention, of further death by my hands.But they do not seem delighted, while I remained excited, explaining that we're accelerating my plans.Within the next few hours, my entourage that towers, over lesser men, begin to prepare for the fight. Grabbing up bolter and blade, racks of ammo that swayed, indeed this would be an interesting night!And so here I stand, with my daemon blade in hand, enjoying this brief peace before. Yet my contemplation is halted, with a cry that leaves me salted, as I hear the words echo out!"IRON WHORE!"

>>62773019Yes, we covet our mighty guns, for we are of the last Bitter Sons, the relic of a warband slain. Our numbers did they perish, when loyalists would get their wish, and one BLUEASSWIPEPAPASMURF rose to begin his indomitable reign.I can hear from my crews groaning, they think they're in for a boning, yet I cannot help but sigh.What did you think you'd get, when you went a made a bet, with your souls amongst beings who lie?Thus I give my man a nod, and he reaches out to prod, a small panel with it's lights blooping and bleeping. Now we aren't too proud, to come in so loud, no instead our entrance will be creeping.The engine of pain then awakens, and I hear from the mortal aching, that their screams have started to rise. Yes, a machine powered by blood, the amount needed a flood, as I consign a thousand souls to demise.With a rip and a tear, I can feel it in the air, as a gateway opens to hell. I turn to my brothers and smile, as we prepare for our trials, and know the results of such, only time will tell.We drop into the portal, and here even I feel mortal, as the warp engulfs us with a dreadful roar. Yet beyond the roaring might, of which I have no fright, whilst I teleport to Calixis, I am unable to witness, yet once again I hear, with my strain on my mental fitness, the cry!"IRON WHORE!!!"
>>62776461>Hear a new voice>Stop digging and look up"Hello there.">Look back down at my foxhole>Guess this is okay, it's about up to my ribs>Look back at the older trooper"What's up?"

>>62776558The fact that you’re acknowledging that it is nothing more than Banal freeform RP and are using that as an excuse just shows even more so why this shouldn’t exist. There is no semblence of a story or anything that could even loosely be calked writefaggotry. This is just a continuing train of idiotic asanine bullshit, driven by a bunch of shallow one dimensional characters, all vying for the spotlight despite lacking the substance to justify more than five minutes in it, like a bunch of children playing with dolls.

A life's work. It was a life's work of servitude, blind faith and dedication spent to the Empire and their false god. I built instruments of war worthy of the greatest symphonies. I bled oceans working tirelessly for the betterment of mankind. Not only I was denied recognition or thankfulness, but I was branded an heretic and sentenced to die. My creation taken from me and discarded. If it wasn't for the unexpected treason of another member of the Adeptus Mechanicus, I wouldn't have been able to escape and survive.They first found me when they discovered that it was me who installed ballistic glass in front of Penitentias for an order of sisters of battle. Those nearly cost me my life, but while they investigated they found out that I improved many other designs, most importantly augmentic implants above else. Of everything I have ever created, only one of of my Mechadendrite remained. It was far stronger, more silent and durable than any other of its kind.After I fled to this planet, I learned one crucial information. My implants were not destroyed. Most of them were distributed amongst high ranking people of the imperium, with some of them inhabiting this sector. For now I have found my first one. The niece of a local lord was granted one of the mechanical hands I crafted. It was hard but I managed to sneak up to her private quarters. At first I killed her bodyguards one by one, strangulating them with my Mechadendrite. They never saw it coming.Then came my favorite part. The wretched flesh bag took what was rightfully mine. It is justice that I pay her back in kind. I brought her back into my lair and I strapped her to a table to perfprm "surgery". While not as enjoying as I initially expected, to have someone else paying for my miseries was a quite breath of fresh air. Now, all that I have to do is find what remains of my creations and go back into my research. I think that now it is due time to inquire about the rest of my mechanical implants.

I believe this means you are here to banish me. Interesting... All the things I could show you... You humans never stop surprising me in new ways. One day, all you want is to know more, the next to forget... To change or stay the same... This is exactly why I must understand. Show me... What you are behind those masks.
>>62808566>This is definately fucking heresy>Hold onto my Aquila pendant>The Emperor protects>Point my axe-rifle at the thing"What is your name, creature?"
>>62808680I am called by many names... The King in Rags and Tatters... The Wanderer in the Dust... The Radiant King... But above all else... I am one of the Seven Devils of Dread Calyx.

You're all-knowing, you're the strongest thing out there, you give us want we want as long we forever obey you, you've been watching us in the shadow and now you decide to come out and rear our ugly head.
>>62808566“Brother Lysan? My chainsword.”>Brother Lysan, the good man he is, brings me my anti-daemon chainsword.“I challenge you to a duel. To the death. No tricks, no surprises, just a good, old fashioned melee to the death.”

>>62808934>I don't believe this thing is a god, but it scares me>I can hear it, even when it isn't speaking>Pull myself together"Soldiers of the Imperium, we will send this foul abomination back to the abyss!">Start firing, ordering my men to do the same
>>62808566> look on in concern as the sisters fall to the ground and begin screaming. > this king in rags and tatters is clearly not good for their pyscheENOUGH. King in rags and tatters.... whatever you are is clearly not meant for us. Leave. Now. This planet has suffered enough, it need not escalate further lest we draw the inquisition's attention, then we all die, along with the planet.

>>62809010Quite an active imagination you have... I am but a gear in the all-encompassing plan set in motion so very long ago... I did not even intend to be here, at this time. But now that I am, I may as well bring forth the Kingdom I was destined to rule.>>62808979>>62809260Such... Fragile things, you humans. I wonder how much more will break you.>>62809293>>62809253>>62809369Such bravery... Most men flee in terror from my visage.>The creature's flesh is torn and almost immediately knit together under the gunfire, clearly far from invulnerable but more firepower will be needed to take it down...>The creature descends, standing still under constant barrage, inviting Kassomon to come forth>>62809323... Is there a reason for me to do so? Even if this physical form is turned to dust, I am immortal. What do I have to gain from departing? What have you to offer?

>>62809604I know... I have a duel to honor. If I win, I will agree to leave, and take all of my servants and spawn with me... After I have a few minutes alone with Nox. If I lose... I will depart. I still have a destiny to fulfill, after all.>>62809595>Clumsily swings its arm at him, even if its physical body is impossibly powerful, the creature is clearly not used to it
>>62809775>I rev my chainsword and swing it into the arm.>I attempt to get it’s head on the backswing.
>>62809959>As clumsy as the creature seems to be, it does have impressive speed>it dodges away from the second swing, although it loses a large chunk of its arm>It immediately begins to grow back, as the Creature goes for its next swing

>>62810437“Look, it’s only because Lorgar fell to some gods that didn’t give a shit about him, then sat back doing fuck all but preach. So we left. We left and decided to kill ALL gods, manually or by destroying their religions. Humanity need not be divided over such things, and those gods who take advantage of their people deserve only scorn.”>I swing at the midsection of the foul beast, attempting to fell it.

I had hoped to get a bit of a head start in building up my kingdom. But at least I now know... What lies behind your mask. Smile, vengeant one, for you have destroyed my physical form. Revel in your success as I return to my search of that place... Where the beginning shall end... And the End shall begin.>The creature slowly turns to dust, the echo of one last mad cackle lingering in the air long after the corpse has vanished
>>62810942>Alas.>It’s done.>I march with my marines back to a transport and take it up to a ship.>I settle down at the bridge.“Warp jump. We have temples to burn, gods to slay, and things to pillage.”>I light up a lho stick as we leave.“May those poor sods down below make it out alright.”
