A call went out. Silence on holy mars. The engines go quiet, the fabricators cool, and the servitor choirs become hushed. On this day, an old and loyal friend of humanity is found. The Magos lovingly brushes away the crimson dust, his mechanical hands still trembling as they reach out to embrace the long-lost rover. "Welcome home, little one." He rasps in binary "We have so missed you."
>>64632151Consider this stolen my friend
>>64632151Oh this is really cute
>>64635264Thanks. Just my trying to hearken back to when /tg/ was love.
>>64632151I love it anon. You gonna do any more, or would you mind someone else picking up what you are laying down?
Anyone has that screencap from the Mechanicus game with the Magos saying that all those serving the Omnissiah are precious?It'd be fitting.
>>64636588Feel free to expand on it.
>>64636751Seconding this request.
>>64632151Son of a bitch, my heart can't take this. I need more of this OP.
>>64637044To the Temple of Restoration they carried the loyal friend of mankind. Borne aloft on a palanquin rested on the steady the shoulders of consecrated servitors and safely ensconced behind a cohort of Praetorian was the rover brought to the Temple, trailed by a procession of the faithful who cried hymns of thanks and jubilation to the Omnissiah. With the most delicate of brushes did the Artist-Magos of the Temple of Restoration lovingly sweep away the dust of mars one mote at a time, leaving not so much as a scratch or a spec of filth. With sacred oils were the rover's solar panels buffed to a shine, and with the utmost care was it's wiring repaired. Nothing but the finest was acceptable for the venerable Child of the Omnissiah who they had been blessed to find. Nothing but the finest could possibly convey their gratitude for it's service to mankind. Day and Night they worked to the sound of the pilgrims who flocked to the temple from across Mars to venerate the Rover, until their task was complete and the great friend of mankind was whole.
This just made me realize, the Mechanicus likely has a small museum of sorts on Mars that has all of the exploration craft, manned, and unmanned, we've sent there, that they've been able to recover. Knowing them, they've probably also recovered many if not all of the currently active/ended heliocentric craft.
>>64638819I'd like to think that in this timeline, yhe F-35 was beaten by the happiest plane, and one now sits in the admech museum temple with its happy little machine spirit being tended to.
>>64632151May the omnissiah embrace him
>>64638819Hell, they'd probably have gone through old records and either recovered or built faithful copies of early launch systems (at least to them).
>>64638819What are the chances the original Wright Flyer survived the Dark Age of Technology, the Age of Strife, the Unification Wars, the Horus Heresy, and the War of the Beast and is currently enshrined on Mars as a symbol of the Machine God's gifts and humanity's pioneering spirit?
>>64639806Near zero, the materials used werem't meant to last even as long as it has. Let alone 39k years. So in other words Trazyn went back in time and stole it for his collection.
>>64638819Somewhere in the sacred confines, there is a small statue showing three human figures. They are Archimedes, Jules Verne, and Neil Armstrong.
>>64639806As much as I want it, not a snowball's chance in hell. Maybe a replica?
>>64638819What are the chances that the Admech could have a collection of ancient videogames? Maybe they would see them as some of the first machine spirits designed for entertainment.
>>64642039>The techpriests get in arguments over who gets to commune with the machine spirit of Super Mario Bro's>Those who have comitted an offense are forced to spend time with E.T the Extraterrestrial
>>64642039>Bootlegs as sickly machine spirits
>>64632151Countless millions stood on either side of the massive streets of the Forge-City. Many in scarlet hoods, standing side-by-side by forge-menials and Imperial representatives. Even the Skitarii had been allowed attendance, standing in perfect rows along the roadside, a stark contrast the milling crowds behind.Great bells tolled somewhere down the street, and the crowds stopped. The road quieted to shifting of dust in the breeze. Even the noosphere, usually blistering with information exchange, grew silent.A great procession of Techpriests and decorated Skitarii came first, heads bowed, hands held in signs of reverence and prayer, each whispering prayers of thanks and praise in binary. Next came lumbering constructs, their vox-hailers singing out raw code, code which when viewed through a noosphere lense created a sweeping portrait of countless hands working on a lone construction.Next and finally was a grav-platform, rolling silently over the ancient road, and upon it was a humble, simple drone. Crude hydraulics, solar-panels, and primitive cameras all. Stained in martian red and ageless damages. Upon this humble thing were billions of eyes, either in person or captured on vid-feed and sent throughout the cosmos. All worshippers of the machine god watched it's grand procession through the streets of mars.Even those on Holy Terra watched with a quiet interest.Beneath the silence, one thought was common among every soul so lucky to see it's blessed form. This small, utilitarian...thing. This drone, was the reason they were here. Because so long ago, there existed a people who valued and loved knowledge and constructed such beings to travel to once-distant worlds in that righteous pursuit. It was sent out from it's loving masters into the great unknown for this goal, and was lost. Cold and alone so far away from those who loved it.
>>64642377Now, in the custody of a people impossibly distant from those original makers, it would be cared for, doted on, and cherished forevermore.Magos centuries old, nameless forge-workers, mighty Skitarii warriors and humble Techpriests all lowered their heads, some took knees, many held out hands in prayer."Thank you." was their message. "Thank you for your travel, and your perilous journey into the unknown. For without you, our way of life would not exist. Our lives would be without purpose, and this planet would not be the seat of power and knowledge it is. All of this, our triumphs, our love, our home, is because of you.""Thank you" they whispered."For this Opportunity."
>>64642039You do realize that this will lead to the Mechanicus literally enacting the plot to The Last Starfighter, right?You do realize I'm okay with this, right?
>>64640759Where would Alan turing be in this?Would he be considered one of the earlier of the omnissiahs followers?
>>64640759What about Edison and Einstein? What of Turing and Curie?I'm now imagining an entire temple filled with statues of every great human scientist and innovator, Servitors set out with information detailing every single thing that is remembered of the figures within.
>>64642741I'd not be surprised if they were seen as blessed by the omnissiah to them
>>64642756>Remember Saint Edison, he who mastered the secrets of electricity and brought light to all mankind.>Pray for the blessings of Saint Einstein, he who saw the invisible order of reality itself and showed us all the code of the universe.>Remember the martyred Saint Curie, she who pursued knowledge even as her own discoveries sapped away her life.
>>64642741>statues of every great human scientist and innovatorThat is quite antithetical to Mechanicus philosophy. Men are merely elements of the knowledge-engine that is mankind, useless and incapable when taken out of it's context. To praise and venerate them is arrogant heresy - one glorifies The Whole and it's embodiments, like Omnissiah or God Emperor.
>>64642870But surely it is not heresy to honor those who were bestowed greater knowledge and insight by the Omnissiah?
>>64642870There is an item in the codex that is literally the skull of Saint Tesla that fires a radial lighting ball.No saints my ass. Also, as wide as the Ad Mech is in terms of philosophy and space. There's very little in the nitty gritty forge world to forge world could have in common.
>>64642950>>64643073>No saints my ass.Never said that. They just don't tend to treat them as we do.
>>64636751>>64638350A poor mans replacement, magos
>>64643261I keep looking at mechanicus and want to buy it, but I always feel like I don't have the money.Should I?
>>64643468Buy it nigga. Even at minute 0 release they asked little enough for it and for a AA title it is perfectly worth the low asking price. Now, leave me alone. This shit is making me weepy and my autist ass cannot tell why
>>64643569Did so, more mechanicus must be had.
>>64642870There is an entire subsection obsessed with biology
>>64645140They view the human body as a highly inefficient machine and focus on ways to improve organic components.
>>64642870>implying your life and a millions like yours wouldn't be spent to retrieve a piece of archotech>implying it wouldn't be billions of lives for something that old
>>64638770Don't forget, the artist-magos has a pet cybermastiff with a really friendly personality and not a savage wire in its body, called L4-1KA

>>64645568I think they meant "by the time they find it it's 99.999% chances beyond recovery"
>>64641928>>64645452I remember reading about a shrine in the center of a massive Mechanicus walker deployed planetside which had the rudder to the Mayflower or something (probably not that exactly?) hanging in it in some BL novel or another.It is, of course, destroyed when everything for a thousand miles in every direction is destroyed, but you know, these things happen.
>>646428482 of them are hacks but hey, history is scary shit for reddits

>>64645599>>64645663Valid questions, this might be a problem.
>>64645620I wonder what they would consider the most sacred object of 'our' era?The voyager golden record?
>>64645753When I said "99.999% chances of being beyond recovery" I was being VERY generous, we're at like... 1/10^30 chance to find it only damaged to an extent that would allow it to be recovered and potentially restorable, and the least damage you expect, the least chances there'll be for it to happen, and those chances decrease exponentially as the percentage of undamaged state increases...When you think about it, and realize that all that we know and created until today more likely than not never gonna survive till the 40k area in-setting in any way, shape or form to a state where it can be recovered... or in any state at all, you really get an existential crisis creeping on you. (at least for me)
>>64645908I don't know man. They managed to preserve Tesla's skull, and that dude's been cremated. I'm sure they can figure a way to save other stuff as well.
>>64646183>They managed to preserve Tesla's skull, and that dude's been cremated.I feel like someone fucked up when checking the data, or that Nikolai "begone thot" Tesla never gor cremated in their timeline...What did they do with it tho?

Feels threads like this are remembered.I remember a thread 4 years back (Jesus has it been that long already?) where an anon raised the fact that the Red Scorpions took actual babies from their parents to raise as brothers, and not young adolescents like other chapters. Meaning that at some point Marines had to play the Father or something, with scenes like Chaplains trying to teach babes catechisms and the rest.
Is it too early for me to suggest that this thread be archived?

>>64638770The Cult Mechanicus all cried out in unison as the most holy of all artifacts, the everlasting rover was restored to its former glory: "Hail, the Omnissiah! A sign of friendship across the stars! We have found the machine whom was to gaze at the holy mars for life without human DNA. We shall construct temples of gazing to find what you have missed, little one." As such, the cult mechanicus began the search for life that would serve alongside the imperialis and mechanicus, to ensure a better future in which the weak flesh might be safe, and the might of metal might be served by peace rather than waste time with war.
>>64642434>On Opportunity's course through mars, even the Titans and their Pilots take a knee in reverence to their ancient ancestor. The God-Machines knowing that their power stems from this rovers curiosity.

Faustinus watched from high above the martian streets, eyes organic and mechanical trying their best to absorb every detail.From the Titans singing out their praise to their comically undersized predecessor, to the Skitarii marching in patterns of binary down the road, every picture captured from his team of servo-skulls produced a portrait of equal parts regimented ceremony, and unrestrained jubilation.His emotional cores returned pride, awe, and wonder. But when he looked at that small rover, he paused.His emotional cores reported a complex mix of emotions, a jumbled mess of chemical signatures and info-tags that gave the ancient magos pause. Were his augments malfunctioning? Had something gone wrong?He quickly ran self-diagnostics.No, nothing was wrong.He hesitated for a moment. A small tag of fear appeared below the others. Then he let down the walls keeping his emotional cores from flooding his mind.His breath caught in his throat, his pace quickened, tears formed in his remaining biological eye for the first time in centuries. He was overwhelmed by it, a prisoner too it, as he looked upon the ancient and damaged drone so many floors below.Subdominus Keprah, ever at his side, raised a titanium hand to his shoulder. "Is everything alright Archmagos?" She inquired through their private Noosphere channel."Y-yes. Subdominus." He said with his own mouth instead of a binaric speaker, surprised at how difficult it was to speak."Yes Subdominus, everything is alright. I am simply..." he paused for a moment in wonder at the beauty of the moment."I am simply very happy."
>>64643261I don't want to be *that guy* butIf the plural is SkitariiShould the singular not be Skitarius?
Itinerantur Regii marched. Since the tragedy of Mars had been undone, it had marched. Others of the Titanicus were tasked with this sacred procession as well, taking their turns in this walk of honor before returning to their forgeworlds, but Itinerantur walked the very center of this line. Its course was brief, but circuitous. Doubling back on itself at a number of manufactory-cathedra at some points in the route, marching for kilometers at a time in others. Its pace was slow, the god-machine only taking a few ponderous strides every month.Across the way, the Warlord would bow in reverence to the great craters it had seen in the infancy of human advancement. Endeavor. Victory. So many names long-lost in the aeons, but some now indelible, as much a part of Mars as the red soil.At last, at the culmination of fifteen years of the march, Itinerantur stopped. Seeing a god-machine brought low was a sight nobody forgot.To see one kneel? It was a feat some claimed impossible, others balking at the idea of it.But Itinerantur knelt, its massive cannons held to its sides, head compartment bowed in sacred observation.Here. At the Basilica Meridiani.
>>64657858(While I wrote that, I thought about the feeling I got watching this scene for the first time, imagining there was an enormous geodesic sculpture made into a temple at the end of the processional, and at the very center was Opportunity itself.

>>64657751Well, Skitarii as a collective term for the tech guard is not a real word as such, but a twisted form of 'Secutarii', the ancient Martian troops fighting alongside the titans, established over ten millennia.

>>64642870The cult Mechanicus states that a man's worth is calculated by the sum of his knowledge. Great inventors, academics, and thinkers would all be considered saints to the Omnissiah's children. There's countless quotes that state as much in the Mechanicus codexes and video games. Those who made key discoveries in particular would be held with a great reverence to the admech, much like the Ecclessiarchy treats their saints.

>>64632151>OP here, I'm really touched by how much everybody has been inspired by this. Let's see if I can keep up, yeah? Magos Albus tapped his metallic digits impatiently against the cold duraplast console, his face like a withered gourd, illuminated by the dull green of the Gnoospheric console. The sacred forge of his forefathers was silent for the first time in millenia, and he stared at the source of this silence, marched across his screen like some conquering hero. A bitter sneer served to fold his weathered face further, a twitch of frail meat that he allowed himself only because tamping it down distracted him from the roiling cauldron of frustration churning in his chest. A metallic clatter ripped him from his seething, replacing frustration momentarily with a sharp annoyance. Tendrils groaned and whirred beneath his robes as a mechadendrite turned its skull-headed tip to the source of the noise. A single metal eye focused in on initiate Azir, a young lad of dark skin and bright blue eyes, barely a decade into his training, the elder magos dragged a clawed digit across the metal console. "Where," Albus wheezed, "Are you going, boy?" "Honored magos, Th-the forgemaster general he-""I know damn well what he said!" Albus' voice took on a screeching, distorted quality. The forest of metal tendrils raising him a full three feet over Azir's head. The boy looked to him like a mouse wrapped in the coils of a python. Albus froze, recognizing the look and slowly lowering his frame to eye-level with the boy. "...Azir." He wheezed "You are an intelligent boy. In your first year you had mastered the seventy-five cathecisms of the rite of the lasgun.""I had a good teacher, Honored Magos." Azir bowed to the old man."Of course you did." Albus felt pride well in the cavity where once his heart lay. "So then tell me, boy, where are you going?" "To see the return of the Lost Child, Honored Magos." (C)

>>64659421I don't want to though. I don't want mine in the screen cap. What I'm trying to convey here is appreciation of good writefaggotry. My ego is less important than enjoying what they wrote kind of a feeling.
>>64646554>No longer shall it sing the ancient terran chant "Happy Birthday" aloneJust imagine the AdMech's shock when the silent rover suddenly starts playing music yes I know it only played the song on its first year and NASA disabled it after that to conserve battery life
>>64659376>Continued"Lost child." A puff of stale, iron-scented air escaped the mass of tendrils beneath Albus' ruin of a nose. "I figured you better than that, boy." Azir tilted his head in confusion. "Sir?" "We are at war, boy. As we speak, the cunning xeno plots our downfall. The Antipath claws at the edges of our resolve, seeks to suborn our machines and minds to its dark purpose. Worlds burn! Flesh and steel shredded in the myriad jaws of beasts and daemons that would see our blessed factories run cold, our titans made silent, our armor shattered! Where do we stand, boy!?" "S-sir, we stand in a-" Before he could finish, Albus rose from his seat, the hems of his robes fluttering as coiling serpents of metal lifted him upward on a pulpet of steel. "It is a factory which tends to the rite of assembly, a factory which crafts the Bolter, the Hellgun, and the Plasma cannon, weapons used by Skitarii, by Astartes, by the Legions! Weapons that could save the lives and knowledge of so many, weapons that remain un-built! And for what, boy? For an ancient, obsolete thing! We have built rhinos, baneblades, and Titans! TITANS, Boy! What use to our species is this...this trinket?!" The heat in Albus' chest seemed to glow through the remains of his throat, filling each breath with contemptuous cinder and ash. Azir's back was pressed to the side of a great fabricator whose spirit regarded the initiate momentarily before returning to its rest. Azir mustered his breath, his lungs yet unreplaced. He looked to the eyes of his master, and spoke.(c)
>>64659586>continued"Do you remember where they found me, Sir?" Azir's voice was soft, his augmented throat tightening. Albus let his raised shoulders lower just slightly. His mind sifted through his visual records, the cortical stack in his brain shuffling through a billion images until it found the image of a young child, no older than four. The patina of dust and ash on his face cut through in streaks by tears. A pair of metal hands, Albus' own, gently lifting the boy from the remains of the bunker, shielding his eyes from the carnage with his scarlet cloak as the dust-choked sky let astartes drop-pods fall like white-hot tears. "Of course, my boy..." Albus allowed the pangs of that memory wash over him waves on an eroded cliff-face. Stoic, but still damaged in a trillion little ways by it with each passing day. "Scipio Delta." Azir noted. "Aye, I recall...It was the Necrons. I was just an engineseer then...""Everything was gone," Azir continued. "Our cities, our art, our songs... our loved ones." "We had to-""I know, sir. I'm not blaming you, or the ones who decided to enact the Final Rite of Bombardment. I don't remember much from those days, Sir, but I remember seeing my world, so distant when it burned it looked like an ember dancing on the wind. Golden red for a brief moment before going cold and black.""Why are you telling me this, boy? I was there!" Albus' voice hitched in his throat. "Because, sir, my greatest regret, the thing that cuts deep inside me on those nights I can't rest is that I have nothing from Scipio. Nothing to remind me of where I was from, No songs, no stories, no faces, not even trinkets, sir." Albus felt the tendrils propping him up slowly recede, lowering him to the floor. "We need to remember, sir. If it's good or bad or obsolete or painful, we need to remember. IF we don't know where we've been, sir, how can we know where we're going? How can we know we're getting better?" (c)
>>64659376>>64659586>>64659821I'm very angry that you didn't type this all out beforehand because it's good shit and I don't like waiting!
>>64642039Does the imperium even make video games? I mean if they did I'm sure they'd all be propoganda tools or training aids, the imperium doesn't come off as the kind of place that does fiction
>>64659821For a moment, Albus said nothing. Slowly, he turned back to the emerald glow of his console. Azir paused, approaching the old magos to extend a bronze-plated hand on the old man's shoulder. "Sir?" "Be off with you, boy." Albus croaked wearily. "Are you sure?" "Yes. You initiates don't get many rest days. I'd have killed for one like this when I was your age.""Thank you, sir." Azir bowed genially. "And, Azir?" "Yes, sir?" "Thank you. It is not often a teacher learns from his student.""Of course, sir." Azir recalled that pride led to arrogance, a failing of the flesh, but permitted himself a brief indulgence in it as he strode to the door. The ancient steel hatch hissed open, filling the dark factory with golden and crimson light, distant cheers echoing like the patter of soft rain. Albus basked for a moment in the warmth before the door closed itself once more. He returned to his work, but found his fingers hovering just above the sacred runes of the console, suspended as if by some force. He pulled his digits away from the console and rose from his seat. His myriad tendrils ferried him to the hatch, which opened once more, letting the pale and withered remains of his flesh feel the warmth of the sun. From somewhere deep within he felt a song emerge, like a shimmering fish rising to the surface of the sea.Beneath the nest of tendrils and motors beneath his eyes, he began to softly sing. "I'll be seeing youIn all the old familiar places..." (End)
>>64659983It's all propaganda.Your non-propaganda entertainment options are:>Shanking a mutant>Sex in the missionary position while holding hands, for the purpose of procreation>Anything done in service of Chaos (especially Slaanesh)>Purging
>>64659983Oh, fiction exists in the Imperium, though I'm sure it's more limited in subject matter than ours (no interspecies romances or similar, just for starters) and I imagine a lot of it is planet-specific. Video games specifically are a good question though, aside from a few fringe beliefs I don't know if the Mechanicus would consider games a worthy use.
>>64647096The taming of the Dragon would be the ultimate punchline to what was once a doomsdayclock
>>64642741Nikolai Tesla and Marie Curie have relic options in 7e. Not a small leap to believe that other scientists have remains or oddities that the Mechanicum saved.
>>64660120I personally imagine the mechanicus has video games for a couple of reasons. One, they could serve as training/evaluation tools a let's give the adepts a simulated skitarii legion or explorator fleet or forge and see what they do with it kind of thing.Second reason is braging rights. Magos could use simulators to try and outdo each other without actual real world costs, so it's a good way for two tech priests to throw down as it were. That's just my thought process on the matter.
>>64660039You did a good thing OP
>>64660082>implying the Imperial propaganda video games wouldn't be the coolest shit ever solely for propaganda purposes
>>64659362I think so, great models overall. Abundant conversion potential and for the models that are less great they have plenty of 3rd party options to make them beautiful in your eyes and those of the omnissiah
>>64660273>implying that Imperial vidya wouldn't all be Desert Bus tier to save thrones

>>64660191Oh yeah lots of training Sims of various grades, not to mention others that exist as earlier testing means to "calibrate" the minds of younger initiates
>>64660410>if you lose as the Imperials, you get blammedIf you choose any of the other factions at startup you get blammed
>>64660410But sir imperials are the only factions I'm allowed to play, why do the option's even exist?
>>64660474To test your faith.
>>64660410Realistically though, I think there wouldn't even be possible to flat out lose. It would just roll back to a latest save state. Or better, even if the player fails, the game tells that the imperium rolled in and roflstomped everything, but the player is at fault for incompetence.There even can be various Imperial-themed factions, like guard from that world, guard from another, marine chapters, Navy battlefleets, admech forge-worlds and so on. No need to make bad guys playable.

>>64661184There is a mission in Inquisitor Martyr that lets you pilot a baneblade. And a mission in which you control a knight as well, but those are only one off instances and if you dont like diablo clones then I wouldnt recommend playing martyr.

>>64659469>Sire, whats this chant its singing? Is it some ancient lithany of the Omnissiah?>No apprentice. Its an old Terran melody, it used to be entoned when someone achived another year as part of a ceremony know as "Birthday">What would happen Magos?>Friends and those biologically related to the subject would gather and chant while giving offerings. It was a time of celebration and joy>S-Should we sing it then sire?>Whats that?>I mean... Isnt this a time of joy and celebration? Maybe, even though its not a Lithany of Reparation, it would do it good>Adept>Y-yes Magos?>Since the idea is yours ill grant you the honour of leading the chant>Thank you sire!>And slowly, but rising in volume, the song that was not sung for millenia comes back to life in order to greet the long lost son>Happy Birthday to youuuu...

>>64658443I'm pretty sure it's because GW doesn't even make the slightest effort with their pseudo-latin words.
>>64663357Fucking sold.How would they do the skills and skill-trees though?
>>64666397Granted it might also be a bit about words shifting over time, like in idiocracy, when fudruckers became buttfuckers
>>64645908>When you think about it, and realize that all that we know and created until today more likely than not never gonna survive till the 40k area in-setting in any way, shape or form to a state where it can be recovered... or in any state at all, you really get an existential crisis creeping on you. (at least for me)Well, that only applies to things on Earth, doesn't it? There isn't anything that's going to destroy everything outside the atmosphere.
>>64666966Isn't it also canon that something (a toy I think it was) from the Soviet Union made it to the 40k period?
>>64660507But I want to make a dirty xenos race fall from within and turn upon itself before the Imperial faction rolls in and destroys it with ease!
>>64660177I can imagine a story where some empowered agent of the Emperor goes in to try and re-enact the Sealing of the Dragon within Mars before it awakens... only to discover it's been awake for over a millennia and quietly living as an aspect of the Machine God, beyond sealing by anyone other than the Emperor himself and entirely unneeding of such an act. The vast figure of might and power willingly lying amongst the steel and ceramite that tie it down to Mars as it's children play on it's scales and claws, the once-god murmuring secrets of science and wisdom.A real sucker-punch too to the Emperor's own acts of the past. Turns out the strongest weapon against this C'Tan wasn't psychic might or worldly destruction, but softer chains of love and respect it would willingly don and tighten itself.
>>64632151The fucking cringey wank over this rover needs to stop.
>>64667210I don't know about a Soviet toy, but an Anatolian shaman definitely made it.
>>64667398>I don't have feelings! Feelings are for pussies!
>>64657751High Gothic is not a real language.
>>64666007Probably going to start writing his own liturgical sayings in praise of Oppie.
>>64667482I have feelings, just not for a tool. You can think that the work NASA did is impressive without acting like a faggot about a really expensive RC car.
>>64667710ur a cunt
>>64666827>like in idiocracy, when fudruckers became buttfuckersThe joke with that is that lots of people already call Fuddruckers "Buttfuckers" or "Ruddfuckers". I remember my sister calling it that in the early 1990s.
>>64667854cos ur a cunt
Let us also remember Spirit, who kept going by backing everywhere after one of her front wheels was busted.
What would the Mechanicus in this scenario think of Mars-2 and Mars-3, two Chinese rovers who failed on landing, though attempted 20 years before even Sojourner?
>>64669036Better than most failures in the Imperium I suppose.
>>64669061When the Imperium fails, it fails big.

>>64669515To be fair you have a very narrow window of hotness with mechanicus girls where they got SOME cyber going on for that cyborg look but before they rip out their lower jaw and implant a speaker in and remove any mammary tissue for better armor. Though there are "ambassadors" for the AdMech who look more human than most to not put off Lords and Rogue Traders and stuff to ask for more funding and maybe a moon or two. Presumably they'd look hot because hey, you might as well get some gene-splicing done if you're not going to cover your skin in ceramite.
Reminds me, have we gotten humanised Opportunity-tans yet? It's going to happen. We've lewded everything else.
>>64669599She's underage, anon.
>>64642848Fuck Edison. Einstein and Curie can stay.
>>64669576>remove any mammary tissue for better armorIntolerable inefficiency, menial - it's imperative that a techpriestess's Anterior Fuel Cells remain generous orbs so as to be replete in sustaining energy that may prolong intensive study sessions.

>>64671759Correct person anyway. Still gonna lewd it.
>>64666822>IGSkill trees for higher ammo capacity, bonus damage and accuracy with lasguns, some extra health but not too much, probably a bonus with grenades. Action skill to call in help or a vehicle? Could get a tank for a minute, summon reinforcements or an airstrike.>PsykerAction skill is dangerous for her to use, skills throughout her trees to reduce the chances of blowing herself up, even as others raise the odds to expand on her power. Probably starts as Smite but skill trees can add a bunch of other effects for AoE, ongoing energy damage, stun, frightening enemies, etc. Mix in other powers as skills like Psychic Barrier for extra hp.>OgrynAction skill like Brick or Krieg, increased speed, massive melee damage and some sort of thrown weapon for range. Skill trees are all about being bigger, tougher, stronger and meaner. Also negating recoil from firing weapons.>InquisitorSkill trees based on the Ordos Malleus, Xenos and Hereticus, mostly determining what enemies you get bonuses against, regardless of your weapons. Can take over enemy vehicles and gets an action skill to Dominate an enemy, skills can make this Terrify nearby enemies too.>SororitasEverything burns>MechanicusVery tough with some self repair abilities and buffs to all their gear by knowing the proper prayers. Increased damage, accuracy and reduced recoil because machine spirits love them. Canticle action skill, maybe Shroudpsalm?>CallidusAction skill temporarily imitates an enemy unit, making them all lose track of you until you attack or the time runs out. Skills extend duration, give bonus damage on attacks from disguise and can leave enemies stunned with confusion when you revert. >AstartesHeavy armor, heavy weapons, enhanced everything. Not balanced against other classes, just a fun chance to wade through the game as a rather OP character. Too OP with a multiplayer team but necessary to play solo past the endgame. Action skill depends on Chapter?
>>64666007you know its kinda ironic that he is the most religious out all the magos in the game yet he has the most amount of flesh when compared to the rest of them

>>64671498Because, all jokes and mechanicus fun aside, the pursuit of knowledge is a righteous one. It transcends race, gender, and all the other petty, useless shit we humans argue about. It's what matters more than anything else we have.And 15 years ago, a group of people got together to pursue that righteous cause, and built something to do it in their stead.This little thing they built has no thoughts or will of its own. It's objectively a lifeless tool built of steel and silicon.But it's a symbol of that pursuit, an icon built to satisfy wondrous curiosity, and now it's gone. Mankinds curious child is dead, and we're left with one less eye to peer into the cosmos with.
>>64674244We need more fiction with dudes like Faustinious
>>64672477IG I see being a combination of Axton and Roland only with more lasers. Action skill, I dunno. Vehicle one probably wont work though since there'd be plenty of points where he's in a building or a place otherwise unsuitable to vehicle use.Psyker could have a mix of minor warp skills in addition to gun-play. A Perils of the Warp meter builds with each use of Warp skills, and the higher it gets the more self damage the player takes. Screen effect would be shadows intruding on the player's view. After a certain point of it, the meter overloads, the screen blacks out, the player dies, and the rest of the team has to put down the Daemon that just showed up. Skills and gear to slow and mitigate this are available, but they have drawbacks (ex, a skill could cut the Perils growth rate by 25%, but players take additional damage from all sources)Ogryn, I wholeheartedly agree. Beating the shit out of enemies for the Emperor is pretty much perfect for one.Inquisitor works well. Action skill, I dunno, again, vehicle-based one wouldn't work for indoor/underground areas.Sororitas would be faith, swords, and setting shit on fire. Action skill buffs all allies and nerfs enemies (DoT, slowdowns, etc), and grants all allies health regen. At high enough levels Her fire damage would bypass all elemental resistances. Stacking kills would build the Faith stacks, which would further amplify Faith and Flame based effects. At high enough stacks she starts alternating between prayers to the Emperor and hurling obscenities at her enemies.Mechanicus, that works too.Callidus, I dunno, maybe Vindicare, Eversor, or Culexus would work better.Astartes, maybe strip him of his gear and armor then put him on a 1-man penance crusade. Gets the Fury meter from WH40K Space Marine as the action skill./And what the fuck is going on with my browser? I got shit that will intermittently load (gstatic, which includes captcha, i and s.4cdn occasionally, etc) and its annoying.
>>64676014IG skill should be calling in an artillery strike. Explain it away with orbital support maybe.One tree should be Commissar, providing benefits to allies and being psuedo-support. DLC is Jokearo, their special is to create a new weapon. Downside is you can't pick up dropped weapons but instead "scrap" them to refuel the special, and you have no idea what weapon they'll make. It's mostly a novelty class but it's always hilarious when they scoop up all the white drops before suddenly leaping into the fray with some bananas legendary digi-volkite cannon and shrieking madly. It's also hilarious when it runs out and their next special use gives them a stubber pistol
>>64675766We need more content about the crew of the Cauestus Metallican man.Oh, and 40k fiction that doesn't immediately self-sabotage with the need to drown out anything remotely interesting with GRRRR MOAR GRIMDARK DOGMAA EVERYTHING SUCKS EVERYONE MUST BE AN ASSHOLE ANYTHING GOOD MUST BURRN

>>64667813 Actually, you're the fucking cunt, getting riled up by someone pointing out that the wankfest over an expensive RC car vs the actual work of the people who made it and ran it makes you the cunt here.
>>64677004Adult humans don't ping our "cute, protect" instincts the way a small-dog-sized mobile machine does. We're inclined to get attached to small cute things because that's what our own dependent offspring are like; the instinct also responds to small/young animals... and to things that look and act similarly, even if we know intellectually that they're not alive.tl;dr: SCIENCE! can explain why people get worked up about Mars rovers.
>>64677077I understand why, it's still fucking stupid. Especially since there's not much cute about the rover.

>>64677785Settle down Anon, go get your diaper changed.>>64677786Yes, children do that. Are you a child?
Stop responding to No Fun Guy, it's a waste of bumps.
>>64677786hes a cunt He's entirely incapable of understanding the near-universal human impulse to pack-bond, and is being wilfully ignorant of the symbolism involved in this. Personally I suspect it's at least in part because they wish to be seen as aloof and superior to others, but that's admittedly armchair psychology. mostly thohes just a cunt
>>64677854>waaahhh why didn't you like my shitty writefaggotry about an RC car?!
>>64677883see thatthat you bein a cunt
>>64677896Whatever you say, cunt.
Does the rovers have enough value to be worth picking up,say humanity were to launch a ship to past the moon or something?
>>64677936How long we going to keep doing this?except, nocos ur the cunt
>>64677969As long as it takes, cunt.
>>64676014>>64676137Agreed, the IG are known for their vehicles but artillery strikes make more sense (even when deep in a cave system or eaten by a giant worm creature?) Combining stuff from the other Soldier classes is pretty much what I'd expect for them, just with 40k gear instead of Borderlands stuff, not that there's much difference for some of those. Commissar tree sounds like fun too, good for multiplayer and maybe with a Blamming capstone that gives bonuses as long as allies are actively fighting but deals damage to them for failing to shoot within certain intervals?I love the Perils of the Warp Meter, but as Anarchy Stacks from the Mechromancer with constantly adding ongoing damage. So maybe you can use your powers once in awhile safely, but build enough Warp Stacks and you catch on fire. Build more and you start to get shocked and even poisoned until the stacks decay. From our perspective the Daemonhost is very suitable for dying from stacks, but in the Imperium they'd likely just have the Psyker character go up in a big, multi-elemental blast rather than tell every kid with a console about such Warp entities.Inquisitor is tricky because they're all about rank and connections and not too many crazy powers. Taking over enemy vehicles and other tech though I was thinking was a skill, their Action ability being one of the few big powers they have in the game. Or maybe they can present the Rosario and cause some huge debuff to enemies while buffing allies?Definitely a good take on the Sororitas.Callidus... I just wanted to include a properly sneaky sort, like Zer0 but a different stealth effect. Culexus are fairly focused on psykers, and Eversor are kinda not quite the stealthiest around. Vindicare might work though, or make it a more generic assassin with trees for Vindicare sniping, Eversor melee and Callidus stealth?Astartes, maybe? Fury Meter sounds good at least.
>>64677998Well in that case I'm heading off. It was fun shitposting but I'm about to fall asleep at my keyboard here. Real talk though the fact you're struggling to see the value in the rover and the potential emotional attachment -even if somewhat excessive in the media right now- is legitimately concerning. Do you ever find yourself struggling to communicate with others in day to day life? Perhaps not recognising social cues that others seem to take for granted? I've got a sister with a mild case of the 'tisms and I can sort of see it's echo here. It's worth considering, if only to confirm it's absence.You were however regardless, in the manner of your posts a complete and irredeemable cunt. And I mean that word in the very worst way, aside from mere banter and jokes, but you were a thoroughly unpleasing individual to interact with and I shall be glad to never have the displeasure of doing so again, if I am fortunate enough for that to be true. And so for the final time:ur a cuntAh, don't you love book-ends?
>>64632151That's like finding the first ever wheel on earth.
>>64678008>all mechanics for assassinshttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/13213415/>>64677969>>64677998Get a room
>>64678008Just say the artillery strikes can dip into the warp and hit inside buildings because.. they're special like that. There's a reason these are heroes/badasses, they have cool shit. There was a Squat class planned, but they pulled the plug on the project just before launch
>>64678156>implying I'm gonna read all thatCunt.I have too many books that they ultimately don't actually have any room to be used.
>>64674388Anon you need to stop..
>>64678196>The psyker opens portals>This steals random arti strikes from across the galaxy and dumps them on the target. 1 in 1k chance of pulling virus bombs or Dark Age ultranukes
>>64678186Yeah, an assassin drawing from all the branches would be fucking terrifying, never Water Caste next to you is an ally or about to reveal their true form and carve a bloody swath across the complex, or if the cultist below was just generally waving their gun around in excitement or secretly gauging a dozen sniper shots until they pull the trigger and half your priests drop dead.>>64678196Fair, or like anything else in Borderlands, it just works, fuck logic. Supposedly they'll return in the Death Worlds MMO but no one knows if the devs are keeping it a class or just some NPCs
>>6467290101001110 01100101 01101011 01101111 00100000 01100011 01111001 01100010 01101111 01110010 01100111 00100000 01100111 01100110 00100000 01110111 01101000 01100101 01101110 0001010
>>64678196Now I think about it there could easily be some DAoT cannon that can shoot wherever the fuck it's told to shoot, regardless of what anyone or anything else might have to say about it. Wormholes don't fuck about.The Guard's backstory can have them stealing the designator from an ancient outpost before some heretic or xeno faction can, and they don't quite understand how valuable it is. Inter-character chatter has the Techpriest repeatedly ask to have a look at it, as they're beginning to suspect something about it.
>>64678723I'm thinking the storyline is that some sort of Warp travel accident strands everyone in a really nasty patch of Catachan, the remains of whatever ship providing your starting hub after you trek through some jungles from wherever the crash tossed you, whether from the ship falling apart or using escape pods. So it could also be full of other soldiers, support staff, and other survivors, plus whatever does the artillery strikes. The major goal is to reach some way to get back off the planet, find out who or what caused the crash oh and investigate that weird xeno ruin someone saw as we plummeted over the jungle? Also why are there so many factions here?! It's not enough to be a Death World, no, there had to be an Eldar saboteur behind the crash, some heretics and a Genestealer cult hidden out in the jungles too! What's that, the ruins are leftover from the Old Ones?! Just.. please Emperor, don't let anymore weirdness befall us today.
>>64678651>an assassin drawing from all the branches would be fucking terrifyingThey tried this.The Maerorus Temple had only one member, Legienstrasse, and was disbanded after she decided that she didn't like taking orders.
>>64679617Back to Callidus then to have a stealth character?
The Mechanicus doesn't want you to know this, but...Coggirls are the best girls.
>>64679736Yes.Legienstrasse was capable of fighting:>Captain Lysander of the Imperial Fists>A Terminator Squad>A Culexus Grandmaster>An Eversor>An Emperor's ChampionCaptain Lysander was the only survivor.This was the second battle; the first one was:>Captain Lysander>A squad of Assault Marines and 1st Squad Veterans>A different Emperor's Champion>A Scout squad and a Vindicare Grandmaster providing fireShe survived being decapitated and finally died to a Thunder Hammer.
>>64681276Don't forget to mention that she fought them all at once.
>>64681276>>64681361holy shitAny art/pictures or at least a description?
>>64681375Maerorus assassins were supposed to be like Resident Evil's take on Pillar Men: Legienstrasse could eat people through her skin and lay eggs holding clones of her, because of a bunch of DNA from different Xenos species. She could also gain lots of fun mutations at will, so she always had the perfect abilities for the job.This is what happens when you pay Hereteks and radical-minded Techpriests to make you a bioweapon.She appears in the novel Seventh Retribution.
>>64677928There on record as saying if they had enough spare weight, something they know the exact composition of would literally be the last thing they bother to bring back
>>64681485Sweet Emperor she sounds both badass and a mistake to have created in the first place
>>64682775The Officio Assassinorum made enemies of the Imperial Fists that day.They also killed a Lord-Inquisitor who was investigating the presence of Chaos, which they caused by hiring World Eaters and Chaos cults to kill her.
>>64669609Given it had a life expectancy of ninety days it was 4688 in rover years.
>>64683301And they possibly didn't find all the eggs.
>>64684550Yeah, a whole IG Regiment got killed by eggs.I wonder if any DMs used the eggs in a Dark Heresy/Deathwatch campaign.
>>64684571Imagine her eggs combined with Tyranids and Orks.
>>64684582Good thing Bobby G is up, right?
>>64684841But he can't be everywhere at once.
>>64684849Well, if they were corrupted by Chaos he would have to respond.
>>64647158...And that's why we're not allowed to wear power fists while serving the duty.
>>64660191In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium, there is only Dawn of War
>>64678598I am making this a power in my deathwatch campaign
>>64679527[Enslaver noises intensify]
Welp. The thread was good for a while at least. Until samefag showed up.
>>64676137>This JokaeroYes. Maybe make it so that the weapon crafted is permanent, but since you can only have two weapon on you, if you don't stock it, your power erase the one you currently hold (maybe using to fuel the power so it isn't to punishing).Also you can't drop it, so no lucking out and gearing all your team in legendary.
>>64687519Yeah that was the idea, it's a class that functions as a continuous gun game. The power takes ages to recharge, so it emphasises constantly picking up trash items to speed up the.. "Feral Inspiration" recharge. You refuse to drop weapons, character chatter can have other characters say "Hey could you maybe toss me one of those cannons some time?" only to be met with furious simian screeches of indignation.Shields and armour are standard, so there's still progression.
>>64687766Oh, I tough you suggested the weapon was "temporary". I tough it would be horrible to see you hard won legendary, you finally lucked out to have go to waste because you couldn't just stock it in your chest before going for the russian roulette.
