Lets build out the story of the Predators and their band of misfit Imperial forces as they desperately try to hold off the forces of chaos and defend the Imperium.last I checked our players are:>robo-predator space marines>Waffen SS sisters of battle>Jihadi Imperial Guard from the Tallarn 666th>A badass grandpa Lord Inquisitor who runs the entire sector>A Heretical inquisitor who went full yandere for Lord Inquisitor-SenpaiNew forces are welcome(ish), just roll them up if the thread agrees. Write and drawfaggotry is highly encouraged.old threads here:>>65965351>>65977935not sure if this goes here or in /qst/ so I've put it here for now, will move if need be
Inquisitorial Correspondence: Inquisitor HaversonDatalog: 478485391doe.564gr.243To: Inquisition high command, High Lords of TerraPriority High: Secure Channel Access GrantedBegin Transmission================================== In accordance with my assignment I have begun my investigation and surveillance of the long-thought defunct Venaro sector. While I greatly desire to report that nothing of note has occurred within this sector, this is simply not accurate. As it stands, the forces of this sector are embroiled in a war with the forces of chaos, who have appeared in greater numbers than I have ever before seen. Furthermore, there are rumors within the ranks of the everyday soldier (if they can be truly called such) that there have been sightings of Ork Vanguard craft, potentially heralding an ork WAAAGH! In any other situation such a circumstance would, as you know, present a dire threat to the Imperium. Now is no exception. The location of the Venaro Sector is abnormal, as it would be considered a sector of extreme strategic value, due to its access to systems deep within the heart of the Imperium, IF it were not located on the edge of Imperium space far from the frontlines. It seems now that war has encircled us at last. My initial report regarding the inhabitants and history of the sector will be forthcoming. It details inhabitants, and historyof note within the sector, though what little information I have gathered thus far about the current siege I have included as well. I shall continue my assignment discreetly, and without interfering for the time being, though I am prepared to take command of the Imperial battlefleet in the sector should the situation become truly dire. I humbly ask that you re-establish communication channels with this sector as soon as you can. The survival of the Imperium could depend upon it. May the Emperor Light your paths==================================>End Transmission>Message Status: Received and Under Review
this is the current version of Haverson's report that I have. It's incomplete and I'm in the process of rewriting it but it does contain the background of the Sector at large
>>65998356I never thought my humble roll thread would evolve into such glorious autism. I am proud.
>>65998571It tends to happen. ook at Clavessa SecundusSo is the Fighter Jockey Inquisitor canon or not? I see him as a middle man and neutral party. Also the sanest
>>65998598I have zero problem with the fighter ace Inquisitor. The Lunatics are running the asylum in Venaro as it is. Might as well get an outside view.
>>65998622>Emperor damn it>Why did I have to do to get sent here?>Maybe I shouldn't have had that orgy with the daughters of all those Admirals. >Yeah that's likely it, even being an Inquisitor has limits
>>65998598>>65998622in all honesty I just rolled him up because I wanted an excuse to keep any note and shit that I have In-universe. If people want to make him/me do things be my guest, but I wasn't intending the character to have any agency.
>>65998693That's good I think. Him being the observer is a good way to make documentation thematic.
So should we make the Chaos Warband the DP leads? Or maybe a Ork Klan that is particularly stubborn?
Do we want to roll up the csm warbandor is it just generic emperors children
>>>65990656>>>65990675So anyone want more like this, or no?
>>65998808Sure thing. I quite liked them.I feel the FJ Inquisitor has a small ship converted into a pocket carrier or at least has a larger contingent than normal. His harem also includes his (female) squadmates.
>>65998783>>65998796let the dice gods decide.they haven't failed us yet.only caveat I think is that the warband MUST be slaaneshii.as for orks, dunno
Legion Warband or Renegade Chapter? (d10)
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>65998955may the gods smile upon these rolls
>>65998973A Legion Warband obviouslySlaaneshi since nothing else will fit and ECDevotion to the Ruinous Powers (d10)
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>65998987
>>65999002Neutral. The warband believes Chaos to be more of a tool than something to be worshipped, serving the dark Gods when it benefits them. What form do the Chapters' beliefs take? (d100)
Rolled 65 (1d100)>>65999017
>>65999048>Daemonhood is Godhood - To ascend to daemonhood is to become a god. Those who have become beings of the warp are revered greatly, those who have not strive to do so. Re-roll if your Warband's devotion to chaos is "Loathed". Very interesting. Despite X'anathor's failings he's still the most powerful among them and they want similar powerWarband Demeanor (d10)
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>65999074X'anathors groupies will be...
>>65999109>Desecrate and Defile. The Marines of this Warband bear hatred towards icons and relics of the enemy, and will try to destroy or corrupt them whenever the chance arises. Temples burn and works of art are twisted by their hands. Yup, they're Slaanesh worshippers alright. I really don't want to know what they do with those statues...>Common Mutations/Deficiencies (if Neutral or Fanatic devotion) (d10)
>>65999109dammit.was hoping for a 7 as that would easily give an excuse for orks to be there.a hatred for relics work since THAT FUCKING BULLET has slain gods over and over again in their eyes
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>65999144
>>65999151You're right. They have an especially deep hatred of relics/idols depicting Daemon banishment>>65999171>Voice of Evil Their voices are twisted and can be heard from far away, and are like the cawing of birdsX;anathor is a given but should we do his deeds or is just becoming a DP and leading enough?Warband Homeworld (d100)
>>65999232nah, lets give him a deed.after all, he needs something that would have cemented the warband's view of ascension being equivalent to gaining godhoodrolling specifically for deed
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>65999283shit.fucked it up
>>65999299>The figure is remembered as a scourge of the Imperium, having ravaged many planets and slaughtering servants of the Emperor aplenty. Very fitting, he probably focuses on the Verano sector which has further hardened the inhabitants
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>65999232Homeworld roll
>>65999350>Industrial World They have lots of war material to use and are well equippedHomeworld terrain (d100)
Rolled 48 (1d100)holy shit another thread just rolled a goddamn borderline insane titan legion that uses stealth tactics. what is it with these roll threads the past few days?
>>65999542We are one and the Same:)
>>65999582Perhaps the legion "Took an extended vacation to a little backwater sector" at the behest of the inquisition at some point? this shit is escalating out of control
Merge them togetherAnd I have to go to work so I won't be posting for a while.
>>65998571I can't believe that my offhand comment about suicide jackets evolved into allahu ackbar abhuman guardsmen.I regret nothing.
>>65998808You're damn right I want more.
>>65999655Could theoretically have the Fallen Titans serve Undivided or Slaanesh. Maybe Eustace leaked word that they were operating in the area. Or could be that they are the latest trick up X'anathors sleeve. Still need a name for the crazy Legio tho
>>65999753You want ackbars, nazis, or predators? I can take a bit and pump something out. Good to get writing again I suppose.
>>65999767there are 8 people in that thread, and only 6 here.let them decide on the name for what they rolled, though if that goes nowhere we can always run with it here.
>>65999779Ideally, I would ask for you to please do something for all of those. However, I ask that you start with the nazis, they haven't gotten enough writefaggotry.
>>65999805Perhaps X'anathor orginally ascended during the Horus Heresy when the Children were going full ham? If we want to integrate the Titan Legio we could say that he was the source of the corruption that claimed some of them during the Scouring and reconquest. Maybe have him get a win for once.
>>65999805what are you talking about m8? the 8 of us are already here
>>65999863I like the sound of this. The villain has to be threatening after all.That and the thought of one of the OG Emperor's Children repeatedly getting his ass handed to him is hilarious.
>>66000065Finally he just gets so pissed off that he just goes "Fuck it, I'm calling my titans" and wants to just burn the entire sector to ash.thats amazing actually
>>66000112Im getting sick of this, let me call in that favor the tecnofiddlers owe me
>>66000112Yeah and like the idea of Loyal and Disloyal Titans CREEEEEDing each other Is great
>>66000112Given that the flora(and possibly the fauna as well) on our planet devour metal, how would that affect any titans? I'm imagining cybernetic strangler vines creeping up a Chaos Titan.
>>65998356Titan Thread is dead so heres the basicsSo what we have atm>Mostly Warhounds>Ace Unit is a Ranged Nemesis Warbringer >Said Lead Titan fought beside the Emprah>Homeworld is a factory planet >half of us are dead or MIA>Faced Abbadon at Cadia>Famous for leveling worlds>Greatest failure was that half our Legio succumbed to the Great Enemy >We have a fragile hold on sanity due to having been exposed to the whispers of chaos but saying loyal>Said fallen Titans are our Numero Uno Foe>We are sneaky ambush Titans.(Creed is amused)Naming conventions are open I guess
>>66000853also our Legio itself was founded after the HH to assist in retaking the Imperium. The Lead Engine oc is much older. Ancient, even.
>>66000881I liked the name that the guy in the other thread came up with for the fallen legion. "warp riders" i think it was. Pale riders feels eh, but I do like that.
I have to step out for some timeIf you lads keep the thread alive, I'll work more on this report and other assorted writefaggotry tonight.just keep it liv until then
>>65998356>>65998445https://www.mediafire.com/file/laj4tr275fl2s09/Planet+Setup.rarIs there a map yet?
>>66000853>>66000881>>66001136>>66001242>Warp RidersDoesn't that sound too close to Warp Runners? That's the Legio Astorum.If we're keeping that as the name though, howabout Legio Auriga for the High Gothic name?
>>66001944Not that im aware of. >>66002070Warp Riders would be the Chaos boys. Altho obviously if you have suggestions make them. I only put forward Warp Riders under the assumption the loyal Legio would be the Pale Riders.
>>66002258Well why are they called Warp Riders? What's their special schtick? Ghostly Titans like the Warp Ghosts?
>>66002496Could be that their allegiance to chaos has let them augment their stealth tactics even further. Like maybe some of their titans can shift into the warp partially as a stealth measure.
>>65998571I didn't think people would latch onto the predator Marine thing. its awesome seeing how this has grown
>>66003175It's nice. Turned into a whole sector war
So from my understanding we have some titans vs titans and demon prince vs predators. What are the other groups doing?
>>66003295Also fighting the forces of chaos presumably alongside the predators. Remember the predators modus operandi doesn't really lend itself to outright confrontation so the sisters and the guard ate probably manning the ten chest while the marines fuck around behind enemy lines.
>>66003329GET TO DA GUNSHIP
>>65998356Writing a small forge world and its knight house, hold up.
>>66004133>>65998356Hope it's to your liking, anons.
>>66004671This is fucking excellent.I'm getting scrapper vibes from this sect of the mechanicus. Like their specialty is patching up stuff with whatever happens to be lying around without needing to run to mars. also, flying around in an ancient void kraken is fucking awesome.Where is Celberian with respect to the rest of the sector? I think we need a sector map like >>66001944mentioned.
>>66005166>>66005241Thank you. About their location, I don't know, you may choose it if you want.
>>66004671 Here. If anyone wants, I can also provide a gas giant which is also an agri-world and mining world, as well as a source of recruits for the sector navy.
>>65998445I'm wondering if these IG regiment would benefit from lore of the historical hashishin...
Did we ever actually do any rolls for the Ork klan? If not, I say we get down to it.https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Ork_Klan_Creation_TablesFirst things first, 1d10 to determine the nature of this greenskin infestation.
>>66006601I'm hopping these orks end up completely straight laced
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>66006601
>>66006601where did the ork klan come from?did they just show up one day for the promise of a good krumpin, or are they there because something brought them?My suggestion is that X'anathor is SO fucking pissed that he intervened with a ork WAAAGH traveling through the warp, redirecting them to the Venaro sector in an effort to even further overload the defenses of the population.
>>66006750>Propa' KlanThe xenos appear to have a semblance of organization about them, they behave consistently in ways that indicate an actual klan as opposed to mere freebooters. More intel will be delivered shortly.Roll 1d100 for color.
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>66006807Here we go
>>66006787This is pretty good.>>66006842>Yellow (flashiest)For some reason that surely only makes sense in the mind of a xeno, the Orks of this klan paint themselves yellow. Perhaps it is their primitive attempt at camouflage? Further reports inbound Hunt Master.Roll 1d10 for legendary ork, then 1d100 for what it did.
>>66006787Imagine the sheer amount of butthurt X'anathor experience when the orks decide to go after the Chaos forces first.
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>66006919>yellow you say?>given their lack of anything else which could be even close to consider "stealth" and frankly the ease with which our forces can pinpoint them, I find it difficult to believe they think the to be a form of camouflage.>if i didn't know any better I'd say that they were attempting to draw attention to themselves.>excellent work Hunter Darius. Continue to monitor our new guests.
Rolled 4 + 1 (1d10 + 1)>>66006919>>66006787Suppose we'll find out when we get to that table

>>66006975>>66006983We'll call that a 41.>Warboss>Krumped loads o' spiky 'umiesYou may have a point Hunt Master, they certainly make no attempts to quiet their endless shouting. Interestingly enough though, those shouts are sometimes coherent enough for me to make out actual conversations, often on the subject of their Warboss. Apparently it has a reputation for slaughtering the repugnant servants of Chaos. Perhaps this is a windfall for us, we could turn the beasts on the traitor horde. I must move now, I will continue my reports as the opportunity strikes.Roll 1d100 for Gork or Mork.

>Inquisitorial Correspondence: Inquisitor Haverson>Datalog: 478485391doe.564r.586>To: Inquisition high command, High Lords of Terra>Priority Prioris: Secure Channel Access Granted>Begin Transmission==================================Most Esteemed Lords,We seem to have a rather urgent situation developing here in the Venaro Sector. It seems that the thread is far greater than I initially thought.Since the time of my initial report, news of several new players has reached my ears. Firstly, the divided titan legion known as the Pale Stalkers has reappeared as reinforcements for both the forces of Chaos, and the Imperium.Secondly, it seems as though there was a previously unrecorded world harboring a force of Imperial Knights as well as a fleet of combat spacecraft built according to a pattern I have never come across, presumably built by the local Mechanicus.Finally, and possibly most worryingly, long-range auspex scans have indicated several ork ships dropping into realspace in the span of the past several cycles. No further information on the Greenskins is presently available, though I have deployed nearly three-quarters of the reconnaissance drones at my disposal.If it pleases you, I would humbly request several more ships, either reconnaissance or combat, be ordered to rendezvous with my personal fleet. Which I have ordered to make their way to reinforce me. May the Emperor protect us all==================================>End Transmission>Message Status: Received and Under Review
>>66007139Just gonna pretend that that's a 5.>MorkThroughout my observation of the greenskin position, I have noticed a crude structure which could almost resemble a shrine of some sort. I have gathered little information beyond the fact that the orks near it shout about a thing they call "mork" and about how they are "the most cunning but are still brutal". Information concerning their numbers will be relayed shortly.Roll 1d10 for how many boyz and what kind.
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>66007317WOTZ DAT!DEEZ 'UMIES FINK DEYZ DA MOST CUNNIN' AN' BRUT'L 'VE ANYONE!DEYZ CLEARLY NEVA MET ANY UV DA MOST ORKIEST ORKS
>>66007361>>66007361>We gots more boyz dan you can toss a herd o' Squigs at! An' trust me, I tried.Upon completing two counts, it would seem that there are a great many Orks in this Klan, perhaps even enough to form a true Waaaagh. They will have to be culled swiftly Hunt Master.Roll 1d10 for average size.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>66007424This is...ConcerningEven with the convergence of the grand hunt, the prospect of fighting a two front war against a fully fledged Chaos invasion alongside and ork WAAAGH will be dubious at best.thank you for your work hunter, please report any further information you can gather. We will need to begin preparations for a war of attrition immediately.Please return to your post hunter and contact me again when you have further information.Stalker Geridan! Summon the Masters, as well as as many Shadows as you can find. I need to convene a council...
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>66007424Rolling for Orklets
>>66007654Yes they are>>66007642Hordes of the Grots
>>66007642>Dey ain't Big, but dey get the job doneIf it is any consolation, while they are vast in number, they seem to be rather diminutive for Orks. I would recommend a sustained bombing run to thin their numbers and funnel them towards the Chaos forces. That said, there seem to be a number of non-Orks among them, I will report on them shortly.Roll 1d100 for ally.
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>66007719Rolling, we'll need to be thorough
>>66007745shit...2 front war it isthere is exactly one way this can go. and that is poorly
>>66007764>Spikey BoysOh boy, they're allied with X'anathor. Maybe because they want revenge for the Fungocide Virus? >A Boy should go down fightin, not dropping without one>Had to bury too many of my boyz, it's payback time
>>66007799I think X'anathor just showed up one day and said.>sup faggots>i heard you were looking for a fight?>just pop into the immaterium and I'll take you to one.then the orks just went along with it because they were bored and looking for a good krumping
>>66007856This sector is full of weird shit. And revenge driven Orkz feel perfectly odd enough to have a place in it
>>66007745Upon closer inspection, the non-Orks are of the hated Emperor's Children. It would seem that the appearance of the greenskins was not coincidence. I will refrain from assaulting their position for the sake of further reconnaissance.Roll 1d100 for enemy.
>>66007880true enoughthe predators would absolutely do that to "solve" any orky problems them came across.particularly given our penchant for denying the orks the one thing that they live for. a violent death.
Do we just want to say that the Predators are their enemy? If so, it'll be a d10 for what special boyz they have
Rolled 4 (1d10)>>66007942that would make sense in all honesty.Its a rational motive to have even for orks
>>66007960>Choppy BoyzObserving their armaments, these Orks seem to have a fondness for melee weaponry. That could prove highly problematic, I would advise saturating the area with the Fungocide Virus as swiftly as possible.I shall make one last pass to inspect their storage units before returning to the lodge.Roll 1d100 for loot.
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>66008055Be careful with the Fungocide placement Brother, tis expensive
>>66008089Hope you don't mind, but I just rolled a d10 I had on hand to make this smoother.>A dozen o' dem blueboyz' Krisis Meks, or wozzit a lot o' dem Sneaky Meks?>We made it orkier, and da boss rides it to battleWhile placing the Fungocide canisters, adjacent to their food and drink of course, I observed what seemed to be looted Tau mechs. They had been altered, presumably to accommodate the Orks. I took the liberty of sabotaging half of them to explode when activated before leaving. I am en route to the lodge now, ETA three standard Terran hours.That's the rolling done, time to get to the fluff.
>>66008210Was just going to post about it.So our Orkz are revenge driven horde of weedy greenskins being led on/allied to X'anathor. They worship Mork. They fought loads of CSM beforehand. They are flashy
>>66008232I like the thought of X'anathor getting his ass handed to him by these Orks when he pulls the classic "enemy of my enemy" bit to get them to help him destroy that fucking bullet.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>65999542>IceGuess the CSM wasn't quite finished. I'll just quickly roll a couple.1d10 for combat doctrine
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>66009100>Death from Afar Lots of gunlines for them.1d100 for special equipment
>>66009130Cavalry? That fits for slaaneshi at least. Also, I'm just gonna repeat my idea of linking this slaanesh Iron Hands warband up.>desuarchive.org/tg/thread/65912886/
>>66007271>fleet of combat spacecraft built according to a pattern I have never come across https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Imperial_Navy#Older_and_obsolete_classes
Here folks. A agri/mining world which supports the Imperial Navy, a sector base for said navy, a Lord Admiral and the flagship of the Venaros Battlefleet.
For the chaos enemies, I hope nobody minds.Tariel had seen horses before. In her pict-books as a child, in the holovids shown at midday during the worker's break. They were noble things, she had thought, holy animals from blessed Terra, bearing aloft nobler men and women. She had wished for one since before she had taken her mother's place in the pressing lines, wished to ride out into the stars on the mythical creature and leave the soot and smoke behind. She had not wished for this. "Tarieeel..." The voice that spoke to her was like brittle glass, broken shards of sounds slowly scraping against her ears, working its way into her head with a bloody ache. It didn't matter how close or far she was, still it seeped into her. She cringed involuntarily. The voice of a demon. "Bring him to meee..."Tariel pushed herself up from the floor, kept her eyes to her feet, winced as blood rushed back to her tingling legs. The metal grating beneath her feet was always cold. Not like home, where the pounding rhythm of the foundries shuddered through every inch of the planet, where the forges wicked away heat to all corners of the industry sector. She wore as much as she could find, as many socks and coats and ragged cloaks as were left by the others. But it wasn't enough. Was this what the stars were like, she wondered, or was it because of... them?The Pale Gallantry they called themselves. Like knights from the pict-books. Like noble things from the stories. Only, far from the books and vids and the pleasant dreams. She had thought they would take her from her home, to a place more noble and beautiful, and she would be able to breath clear air and sleep without the hammering of machines waking her in the mornings.
>>66010981She leaned her weight against the massive dead-bolt latching the pen shut, the cage she watched for her new master. It creaked with cold and age and slowly ground open, and the thing inside beat against the gate in its eagerness. The gate slowly swung open with a hideous squeal and Tariel pressed herself back behind the door, trying to hide herself as the beast inside paced out. She tried to ignore the sickly sweet smell of perfume and decay, the trickles of blood dripping from the creature's muzzle, the scraps of clothing trailing behind its feet. Her master swept up to the creature, pale hood cloaking its features and paler armour hiding its form, and gripped the barbed reins wound around the creature's skull. A low hum, a halting melody, crept into her ears again as her master leaned closer to the beast. Armoured gloves stroked down its sinuous flank."You do wellll, Tariel... You shaaall be rewarded for your sssservice, have no feear..." Tariel cringed back, pressed her back to the cold wall and sunk down to her haunches again. She clamped her hands over her ears, shut her eyes tight and wished for the din of the forges and her mother's smile again. "Have no fear..."
Some sample maps for people looking for ideas.
>>65998445May I expand on Certion VI and the abhuman regiment?
>>66010648Jeeze you keep pumping out stuff, thanks
>>66012065You're welcome.I already had a lot of notes from an earlier 40K personal project. I just had to gather, write and update.
>>66010981>>66010988Now that's pretty good.
>>66012023Ideas I had:>Certion VI>A world which was turned barren by faulty terraforming during the Age of Strife. The Sand Sea is dominated by orks, which launch raids into the Samarra region.>It's believed the scrap citadel of the orks has been built over the original terraforming systems. The Sidonics frequently launch expeditions to ascertain this. If they find this to be the case, they will invade the planet to rescue the archeotech from the orks.>The abhumans are drafted from the planet's underground. Originally a untouchable caste forced to build and maintain the qanat systems, millennia of duty turned them into nightsider abhumans, albinos with bulbous eyes. When the Imperium came, the qanats' entrances were then locked and fortified, turning them into prisons from which only those chosen by the Emperor might leave to perform their privilege of dying in His name. They were then officially designed as the Tallarn 666th regiment. Father Mattius improved the regiment's morale and performance after adding to this creed that, through their worthy sacrifice, the nightsiders would atone for their next life. He now has to ensure that, when the abhumans fight, they perform only suicidal attacks which might actually achieve something, instead of wasting away their lives.>The abus-pattern lascannon is actually used for extreme sniping, focusing on enemy commanders from kilometers away.>The single megabastion in the planet is Malwiya, a spiraling cone one kilometer high. The mighty Dardanelles Defense Railgun rests atop it, capable of crippling enemy cruisers with a single shot. The Samarra region around it is the only fertile farmland, irrigated by the qanats.Might I expand it into a proper text?
>>66013728By all means
>>66013728please do, the more the merrier
>>66013728>They were then officially designed as the Tallarn 666th regimentWhy would this be? They're not from Tallarn, right?
>>66013907>>66014014Thanks, I'll get to it right away.>>66014044That beats me, it was decided in another thread. I plan to justify it as:-Administratum error-The original regiment detached to the system was from Tallarn, but it suffered extreme casualities during a orbital disaster and the survivors were fit only to teach the abhumans how to fight as tallarns do.
>>66004671Definitely!I will certainly use it in my games.
>>66014044The original joke was that the regiment stationed there was originally the tallarn 666th infantry regiment that kept the name after being forcibly relocated by the Inquisition when the showed a disturbing preference for allahu akbar-esque tactics.Deemed as a hazard to any units they were deployed alongside, but too effective to disband, they were relocated.Tallarn was chosen as their system of origin purely for the sandpeople memes
>>66015299Ah I see, so it's a ship of Theseus situation. Gone so long that no one thought to cross their name off the list, so to speak, and they just keep replenishing under the same name. That's cool then.
>>66015392pretty muchI haven't finished the Inquisition report that I'm working on.Hopefully I can finish it up tonight.That should work as a good summary of the factions in play at the moment and clear up a lot of the murkyness of stuff that may have gotten lost
We still don't have that much material for the Tallarn 666th.>>65978103 (and next ones)To recap quickly, we have mutation-tainted gangers from Tallarn, chosen to serve by the blind hand of luck. They are overzealous in hope to redeem themselves, thus the Nuns grudgingly tolerate them. They are specialized in range combat and have a specialized lascannon pattern (not detailed so far). They believe in glory in death and have friends in the Administratum.Their enemies are the Waagh from >>66006601and include suicide bombing among their tactics.Should we focus on their lascannon next, maybe from Sidon or another Forge-World? We also have nothing about their commanding officers or Commissars.
>>66015823See >>66013728 >>66014092
>>66015823If it's Nazi Sororitas with Famulous allies, then I suppose the logical step would be Sisters running screening squads through the populous looking for aberrants and sending them off to work camps. The 'lucky' ones take the lottery into the military, the rest work for their souls.
>>66015823>>66015967>>66013728 hereOkay, that's different from what I was writing. The sororitas live in the same planet? The abhumans are supposed to be from Tallarn after all?
So is the lascannon just as powerful or is it weaker to compensate for the greater range? I can see it used on defense turrets at high elevations to pick off thin skinned vehicles and fairly effective against aircraft. Probably bigger and heavier but has found it's niche over the years
>>66016016No. The abhumans are stationed on different planet then the sisters.
>>66016016Apophis: Homeworld of the order of the [redacted] (Apophis II)Certion: Fortress world where a Guard regiment is stationed (Certion VI).
>>66016103>>66016103I see it as having the same power, but having optimized targeting systems to give it greater range. By the same the shot reaches its target, it might be roughly as powerful as an autocannon shot however.
>>66015929Oh right, sorry I had completely missed these posts.
>They use "las-jezails", a variant of the las-lock created by sidonic techpriests from broken lasrifles. These long-barreled weapons are quite accurate and pack a strong punch. The stocks are handmade and ornately decorated, featuring a distinctive curve which is not seen in the stocks of other lasguns. A las-jezail is often fired from a bipod.Why would they be friendly with the Administratum?
>>66016103I think that the increased bulk and weight (as well as cost) make it unsuitable for use in the infantry. However, the Leman Russes and Sentinels could and would field them, thus allowing their scouts to slip behind enemy lines and them snipe enemy officers with the Abus-pattern lascannon.
We establish previously that Certion VI was a jungle world. Are we going to change that now?
>>66016348 Maybe because they like suicidal guardsmen?
>>66016772>>66016795I thought the sector's world were supposed to be mostly barren.
>>66016834I'm not sure they like suicidal guardsmen but the 666th is probably better-disciplined by their hope of redemption, plus the background of their abhuman brand as responsible for maintaining system gives them a tendancy to be careful with their wargear and not waste fuel or ammo.
>>66016795>>66016887Well, you people decide that.If they're supposed to live in a jungle world, I will adapt the abhumans as nightsiders originally coming from a untouchable caste forced to take care of the dead in the world's catacombs instead. Will also change their garb.What sounds better?
>>66017087Or should they be a type of abhuman adapted to living in the jungles? I got some amazonian indigenous lore I can use for that.
>>66017087They could take care of the dead but also of the whole network of catacombs, including building and repairing tunnels. That would give them an understanding of making tunnels and fighting in them during their service.
>>66017087Well, the idea that Certion VI was a jungle world is from the first thread. Nobody did anything interesting with it until now, so i see no problem in changing some things.
I built the skeleton of the article "Venaro sector" on 1d4chan, I haven't got time to do much else right now but there was a pdf with much of what was said, maybe someone can fill in and do some formatting.https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Venaro_sector
Guys, I'm coming up blank on officers and commissars of the 666th. Any ideas?
>>66016887This is how previous anons describe this sector:>The climate of the worlds within the sector is unusually harsh, so much so that it seems the system was the location of terraforming research before the age of strife. While most systems are habitable, the populations living on them are hardy by nature, having adapted to their environment. This makes some of the more populated worlds excellent recruitment ground for both Astartes chapters, and the imperial guard. However, even these densely populated worlds are nearly barren by some standards. The sector itself was never valuable enough for hives to be constructed worldwide anywhere. There is a singular large city located on the world of Venaro I, the center of government in the sector and sector’s namesake, though even here the presence technology is somewhat lacking.
>>66017641Very good work anon. 1d4chan will soon be graced by our masterpiece
>Elite Units>Cataphracts - This group use Sentinels and Leman Russ Annihilators, armed with the abus-pattern lascannon, to snipe important targets on the battlefield. These may be enemy commanders, particularly tough creatures and distinct armored foes. To achieve this, the lascannons are equipped with improved targeting systems based on a servitor scanning array mounted in the weapon. This enables the user to hit enemies from up to two miles away.
>>66016887So the sector worlds are "nearly barren by some standards", not completely barren. Space Marine home world is a jungle world.
>>66017735Well, we could first use table 2-2 of Only War to get a temperament. Someone give me 1d9?For the Commissar, I guess it wouldn't be easy to fit in, so one of the first decisions would be if he genuinely tries to understand his flock, vaguely tries to be sympathetic or doesn't care at all.
>>66018022Vaguely tries to be sympathetic, seems most fitting.
>>66018038Thanks.>Recruitment and training>The regiment was originally of Tallarn, but it suffered horrendous casualties after the coming of the orks to Certion VI. The Administratum then decided to keep the name, but recruited soldiers from the local abhumans which were then trained by the original survivors of the 666th.>The abhumans are from the planet's underground. Originally a untouchable caste forced to build and maintain the qanat systems, millennia of duty turned them into nightsider abhumans, albinos with bulbous eyes and improved vision. When the Imperium came, the qanats' entrances were then locked and fortified, turning them into prisons from which only those chosen by the Emperor might leave to perform their privilege of dying in His name.>Training follows standard Imperial Guard training, with a heavier emphasis on stamina and marksmanship. Each soldier must be able to walk twenty miles on the dunes on a single day and shoot an ork tooth from two hundred yards before he is considered fit for combat.>Equipment>Sidon Pattern Las-jezail - this is a variant of the las-lock, created by sidonic scav-workshops from broken lasguns. These long-barreled weapons are quite accurate and pack a strong punch. The stocks are handmade and ornately decorated, featuring a distinctive curve which is not seen in the stocks of other lasguns. A las-jezail is often fired from a bipod.>Flak Cloak - Owning to the hot climate of Certion VI, the 666th adapted their armor as a form of sleeveless cloak. It can also be quickly removed if necessary. In case of a melee, many of the abhumans will wrap the cloak around their left arm, using it as a sort of shield.>Scimitar>Garb - While uniform standardization does not exist, the style of dress for most abhumans is relatively similar: a long white tunic and a headcloth.
>>66018145You forgot about their suicide vests.
>>66018381You're right. Was there any detail on those?
>>66018381Was that a common feature or something like a special unit?
>>66018381>>66018407>>66018463>Suicide vest - Every nightsider carries this under the flak cloak. The vest contains a variable amount of homemade explosives, shrapnel and a detonator.>Notable Individuals>Father Mattius: current Chaplain of the regiment. He was initially against being grouped with abhumans, but came to admire their self-sacrifice and sense of duty towards the Emperor. However, he also noted that the regiment’s suicidal tactics often failed to accomplish anything worth of their faith. So he added two ideas to their creed: through their worthy sacrifice, abhumans might atone, and be born as normal humans in their next life; but, a sacrifice which accomplishes nothing is as much of a sin as being an abhuman, for this wastes the life that is the Emperor’s due.
>Planet of Origin>Certion VI>This is a desert planet, mostly covered by large erg deserts. In the equatorial regions, a single day might see water boil under the sun and freeze at midnight. Life is only possible deep underground, in the extensive cave system used by the orks to travel throughout the planet. The poles have more temperate climates, although they’re still very hot during the day and cold at night. Ancient ruins of human origin, buried under the sands, suggest that the planet wasn’t originally like this. The sidonic techpriests theorize that the planet was turned barren by faulty terraforming equipment, likely damaged during the Age of Strife.>The north pole is a large plateau and houses the imperial population in the Samarra region, a belt of fertile farmland around the plateau. The latter is crisscrossed by thousands upon thousands miles of underground tunnels, the qanats, which supply water to the farms and few cities. The single megabastion in the planet is Malwiya, a spiraling cone one kilometer high, located right at the magnetic north pole. The mighty Dardanelles Defense Railgun rests atop it, capable of crippling enemy cruisers with a single shot.>The south pole is dominated by the orks, They built a scrap citadel from which they launch raids into the north pole. It's believed the scrap citadel of the orks has been built over the original terraforming systems. The Sidonics frequently launch expeditions to ascertain this. If they find this to be the case, they will invade the planet to rescue the archeotech from the orks.
>>66018463From previous thread: "Lacking time to say any more Father Mattius simply belted out as loud as he could "Go forth in the name of the Great Emperor of Mankind, and blessed be ye this day!" His answer was a hundred guttural braying roars as they streamed past him towards the front line, where they would go up and over the edge of the trench and then counter charge to buy time for their regiment brothers and the Sisters of Battle to fall back to secondary emplacements. Though they knew they surely went to their deaths, he saw no fear in them, for they had been promised paradise and they did not doubt. The sounds of bolter fire were soon replaced with the whir of chainblades and the shouts of the dying. Another stream of bodies went past Father Mattius, Sisters Militant in shining armor and abhumans toting valuable heavy weapons, but he did not join them just yet, no he waited a moment more, and then his patience was rewarded. "EMPEROR IS GREAT" The shout rang out across the field and then-Boom, the air was rent by a ripple of explosions as his flock began detonating the bombs hidden under their flack armor. "Truly, blessed be the mind to small for doubt" thought Father Mattius as he began to run after the retreating forms towards the next line of entrenchment."To me it's seems like every abhuman has suicide vest.
>>66018738Good job by the way.
>>66018718To add to the suicide vest idea, I think they should include a bit of promethium as an extra little fuck you at the end.Promethium is like napalm, right?
>>66018999Got it>>66019036Thanks>>66019511No idea if it is, but a bit of promethium can't hurt
>EC Marine picks up a guardsman and starts telling him what he's going to do to him first>Notices the mutant laughing"Is something funny, toy? We'll see how well you laugh with your tongue burned.">Guardsman looks him in the eye, fanatical glee shining in his own"Ave Imperator.">Guardsman sets off the blessed promethium laced suicide vest"
What kind of abhumans are we even working with here?
>>66020557>The abhumans are from the planet's underground. Originally a untouchable caste forced to build and maintain the qanat systems, millennia of duty turned them into nightsider abhumans, albinos with bulbous eyes and improved vision. When the Imperium came, the qanats' entrances were then locked and fortified, turning them into prisons from which only those chosen by the Emperor might leave to perform their privilege of dying in His name.
>Noteworthy Engagements>The Welcoming Darkness (251.M39). Desert tribesmen find ruins of an ancient human city revealed by the shifting sands. Greed takes over cautiousness, and they enter the twisting maze of streets. This serves only to awaken the terror which doomed the city in the first place. Demons of the Old Night, the divs are like hairy ogryns with horns and claws, capable of possessing people through their shadows, as well as traveling from one shadow to the other. The lone survivor is forced to send an emergency signal to the megabastion, so the demons acquire more victims. This is their undoing, for three battalions of nightsiders are sent. The battle starts poorly for them, but once the demons’ abilities are noticed, the abhumans move towards the deepest tunnels they can find. There, in the supreme darkness, they feel like home and without any shadows for the Divs to use. The underground melees cost many lives, but the demons are slain.

This has largely led to the further documentation of many of the groups in the nearby vicinity. Though there have been murmurs of yet more factions lurking beyond my reach, strides have been made in many areas and discreet contact has been made with the Imperial Navy battlefleet within the sector. Though full cartographic efforts are still waiting on those with expertise in that specific area, we have obtained some minimal navigation data from the Imperial battlefleet. albeit with the caveat that it is so archaic and incomplete that its a wonder that they can traverse this system at all.I hope to complete an revision of my report soon.

>>66021585There's some stuff here >>66010648
>>66021643just went back through the threadyou lads have been busy. looks like I'm going to be playing catchup for a little bit
>>66021292>Ork Raid Number 3.449 (399.M38). A mix of boss and weirdboy claims dominance over the Scrap Citadel, triggering a small Waaagh!. A caravan of ramshackle vehicles departs to the north pole, seeking violence and plunder. They raze many outlying farms and some towns, catching the attention of the 666th. They fortify nearby communities, uncertain of which one the orks are going to strike next. The roar of engines warns the inhabitants of Tamaklan of the coming green tide. In the midst of battle, a single Sentinel snipes the head of the “weirdboss”, vaporizing it with its lascannon. This provokes a chain reaction, in which the heads of all the orks burst like grapes. A victory with few casualties is almost too good to be true. The success of the tactic leads to its implementation as doctrine and the development of the abus-pattern lascannon.
Finally I'm back. You guys got a lot done. So how should we fluff the CSM and Orkz? Just keep them as is?
I just need ideas on commissars for the 666th, and then I can upload a nice pdf for them.>>66022542Do you have any ideas?Also, how about using this? >>66009288>>66008232

Reread the Jove pdf and it really reminds me of those Your Dudes Marines based off Carthage very close. Was this coincidence?
>>66022765No, I was the author for both of them. Like I said in the thread, I used up notes from past projects.

>>66024596They keep them in wooden crates and just drop them on enemy positions.
>>66024618Yeah, I can believe that.
Here is all I did for the 666th, partially based on stuff said in this thread.
So on the Predators making these into Servitors, this would be a fairly recent thing. The Cyber Beasts are an integral part of the Cyber Wood life cycle and the planet's ecosystem and as such the Predators are very careful to not disrupt the population too heavily.This came after centuries of studying (dissection, vivisection, group behavior study etc.) and trial and error surgeries before they thought it viable>>66024618Emperor damn it I never thought of that. I can see that as the origin of a Pred CSM offshoot after they go insane from the mutations
To the anon doing pdf writeupsYou're a goddamned hero you are. you're making my job about a thousand time easier as I try to put this stuff in-universe. thanks for compiling stuff.

>The insides of the Cyber Beasts are as metallic as their shells>Nerves are more like copper>Muscles at times like steel cable ropes>Skin tough as iron>Blood that is heavily toxic>Digestive fluids meant to break down metal swiftly
You know with all the metals on the predators world it wouldn't at all be surprising if there was something buried deep underground
>>66024934That and they likely drop metal from comets/asteroids on to the surface just to be sure.The beasts and various creatures eat metal and are made of it so their is a circle of life where their remains continually are recycled.I realize due to their shells the Beasts are likely immensely strong, like lift and throw vehicles with ease, tear apart armor and climb Cyber Woods handily. Their tailswipes can rip/cleave through a dozen+ PDF. They've been known to throw up on Chimera's to get at the humans inside as a snack

Right, I've got to get some sleepI think I'm within striking distance tomorrow of the fluffy general summary of what has been fluffed so far.People picked up the pace today, thats always great to see.

>>66028404>Does anyone have any ideas for the Sisters? I've got some stuff in my head for them, but I don't know what exactly to write about.Considering their character, I thought of giving some spartan lore to them:-Every sister is thoroughly inspected for signs of physical or mental blemishes. Their standards prove to be more rigourous than the selections of a space marine chapter.-At age 7, the girls enter a rigorous order-sponsored education, military training and socialization program. Known as the Agoge, the system emphasizes duty, discipline and endurance. They are subjected to continual physical, competitions (which involve violence), given meager rations and expected to become skilled at stealing food, among other survival skills.-All non-militant labor is performed by failed aplicants which weren't seen to have abhuman traits, the girls which weren't perfect enough. Perioeci, whose name means “dwellers-around".-Laconic speech, being brief, precise and sometimes ironic.-The Krypteia is an internal police force which watches over all, sisters and perioeci alike.-Every year, the sisters execute pogroms over the population of Apophis II, executing all which don't pass their standards of human purity.-When purging planets, the sisters abduct both boys and girls deemed pure enough and induct them into their education and breeding programs. They are also obsessed with breeding the perfect human, you see.-The sisters are skilled at fighting as one, product of the constant drilling.-They use bronze-sheated power armor, wear long hair in knots and red cloaks.

>>66030161Let's mix the nazi and spartan then.-Laconic speech, being brief, precise and sometimes ironic.-The Krypteia is an internal police force which watches over all, sisters and perioeci alike.-Every year, the sisters execute pogroms over the population of Apophis II, executing all which don't pass their standards of human purity. That is the final exam of the newly-inducted sisters.-When purging planets, the sisters abduct both boys and girls deemed pure enough and induct them into their education and breeding programs. They are also obsessed with breeding the perfect human, you see. -Some say they use viate womb techniques to achieve the required number of perfect sisters.-They perform experiments on both humans and abhumans, in labor camps in Apophis II.-They are constantly engaged in purges of imperial populations considered tainted or imperfect, seeking to create living space for the products of their breeding programs. These purges often include labor programs in which the imperfect populations die fromn exhaustion and hunger building settlements and cathedrals for the coming immigrants. There are a number of deserted planets full of grand cities and gigantic temples, just waiting for citizens.
>>66030282My first thought that cane to mind is a C'Tan of greed or something
>>66030389The kleptomaniac? Feels appropriate>>66030349Looks real good, I can imagine even other SoB orders feel these girls go too far at times, which is saying something
>>66030349I don't like it. We started with something and mixing in Spartans would only dilute the joke.>Krypteia -> Staatpolize>Perioeci -> Zwangarbet
>>66030076It doesn't seem that there are but we can still make a C'Tan.>>66030282>>66030389OK, what do the little parts look like? Just geometric forms or something else? I think it would appear bright and elude a desire to possess it in whoever sees it, leading weaker minds to treat it as a McGuffin to be controlled, which would eventually profit only the C'Tan itself. Although since it was sundered into shards, this effect probably lost much of its potency.To what extent does our army control him, do they have many powerful shards?
>>66030584>Although since it was sundered into shards, this effect probably lost much of its potency.No, that was only convenient for it, because it could now subtly work its power to compel bearers of its shards to bring them together, allowing it to become whole once again.The Necrons are the biggest obstacle, but they won't last forever in the face of the Predators, the Nazi Sisters and the Tallarn 666th...
>>66030153White goes well with their obsession of purity. Bonus points for the nazi undertone.As for the Necrons, who do they hate most? (1d10)
>>66030614>>66030584I like this. It's a schemer not a fighter to the core. I can see the influence it had on Trayzn, he probably has a shard in his possession as a way of showing it up.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>66030633
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>66030633Rollan>>66029785I think the chaos marines were mostly passed over in terms of lore, same as the Orks. Actually, they weren't even finished I think. Still needs numbers and allegiances. Collected rolls would be>Legion warband (Emperor's Children / Slaaneshi)>Neutral devotion>Daemonhood is Godhood>Desecrate and Defile>Voice of Evil>Daemon Prince (Scourge of the Imperium)>Icy Industrial homeworld>Death from Afar>Special MountsI'm guessing they'd be allied with chaosy titans called the Warp Runners, and led by Xanathor who helped corrupt the titans in the first place. I can't see much else beyond that.
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>66030681Rolling Status
>>66030676The Space Locusts. We haven't put a fleet of them in the Venaro sector yet and I don't think we have to, after all it is already hard to have all of our factions matter.However, perhaps they strike at splinter fleets here and there (without knowledge of anyone else of course) and it deters Tyranids from attacking the sector. Were they to be destroyed or too much weakened, a Tyranid threat could emerge.
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>66030727Typical strength, not much to say here. Rolling for allies.
Rolled 35, 22 = 57 (2d100)>>66030760Maybe the Locusts should be their favored conversion/test subjects? They feel their adaptivity is better suited for study?>>66030727>Typical strengthAllies and Enemies
>>66030794At least we agree on the allies!By the way I'm not too aware of the Necron lore, do they still do conversions? I thought this was pre-retcon.
>>66030822I think it depends really. We can roll the rest to see if they doDamage sustained during sleep (d10)
>>66030822They don't do Pariahs much; those are mostly experiments done by really bored Crypteks.
>>66030791>>66030794Both 35, odd>Rogue Psyker cult alliesThat could be pretty interesting. Slaaneshi psykers are sadly under represented. Also we were 1 away from the traitor Titan legion as allies, which seems fitting for some reason.And we're enemies with the Orks, who were tricked into the sector by X'anathor in the first place. The orks warboss krumped us previously, so that fits as well.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>66030852
>>66030865>Have the memories of a common peasant dumped into an Overlord’s body by some mishap. Don’t know what happened to the mind of the actual Overlord of the Dynasty, but no one seems to realize you aren’t who they think you are. Oh boy. This is where the fun beginsHero (d10)
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>66030892
>>66030857Indeed, we really should develop the Orks more later (they don't even have a name yet).>>66030865Have the memories of a common peasant dumped into an Overlord’s body by some mishap. Don’t know what happened to the mind of the actual Overlord of the Dynasty, but no one seems to realize you aren’t who they think you are.Sounds fun.
>>66030917>Deathmark That's the sniper right?Any idea what it did to become a hero?So are we going with their tomb world being the Pred's home or something else?
>>66030929He killed an ancient Phoenix Lord, turned 720 degrees and walked away
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>66030929Let's see with the biome of the tomb world.We'll see later what the Deathmark did.
>>66030962Temperate rainforest. Since the Space Marines were in a jungle, either they are on another planet or maybe in the same planet but at different latitudes.
>>66030974I'm on the fence about whether they should both be on the same planet still
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>66031140Frankly I'm not too sure. A conflict would occur too quickly since both factions don't tend to share. However, the two could have fought in the past even if they're not their respective nemeses.To help us decide, rolling for "Was it populated".
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>66031280Nope, other planet them. Rolling for date of awakening.
>>66031296M38So they've been screwing around before the Preds arrived
>>66031493Wait, where did you see M38? Result 9 is M40.
>>66031599Messed that up. Sorry. so they started once the Preds have been digging in for a while now
Rolled 1 (1d10)Strength
>>66031761>EndangeredShit this doesn't look too good. They may not be fighting Imperials right now and are aiding against the Chaos invasion to earn some good will? They'd still be a tough nut to crack though
>>66031804Oh shit we have Necrons now?
>>66031830Yep. Greater Objectives or Goals (d100)
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>66031903
>>66031917>No>Helping the fractured C'tan in achieving unfathomable and dangerous schemes, possibly freeing shards to fuse them into a complete C'tan. Well that makes things easier.
>>66030929Can you imagine if the Deathmark gets his hands on a Blessed Cyberwood Round?
>>66032027Would it even work? I mean Necrons don't have souls so the 'Magical' elements of the bullets wouldn't work on Daemons
>>66030443>Looks real good, I can imagine even other SoB orders feel these girls go too far at times, which is saying somethingThat's the spirit!>>66030450Ok, so this?-The Staatpolize is an internal police force which watches over all, sisters and Zwangarbet alike.-Every year, the sisters execute pogroms over the population of Apophis II, executing all which don't pass their standards of human purity. That is the final exam of the newly-inducted sisters. Those that fail this become Zwangarbet, failed aspirants which perform all non-militant labor.-When purging planets, the sisters abduct both boys and girls deemed pure enough and induct them into their education and breeding programs. They are also obsessed with breeding the perfect human.-Some say they use viate womb techniques to achieve the required number of perfect sisters.-They perform experiments on both humans and abhumans, in labor camps in Apophis II.-They are constantly engaged in purges of imperial populations considered tainted or imperfect, seeking to create living space for the products of their breeding programs. These purges often include labor programs in which the imperfect populations die fromn exhaustion and hunger building settlements and cathedrals for the coming immigrants. There are a number of deserted planets full of grand cities and gigantic temples, just waiting for citizens.
>>66031934I...I think we have Jewish necrons
>>66032075It doesn't matter, since the bullet is not a Force Weapon and thus doesn't require energy from the wielder.>>66032120Nice
>>66032166I mean it did say their leader is in fact secretly some random peasant and not an actual noble. One might even say a slave.....
>>66032166Sorry meant for>>66032158
I go to sleep and come back to find out that you crazy bastards made Jewish necrons. What the hell.
>>66032227I wonder if they know the Tomb Kings
>>66032227Does anybody know if Joseph or Moses had an Egyptian moniker during their time their in the Bible? We could use that as the name for our Necron Leader
>>66032257The first thing I found is Moses in Hebrew is derived from moshe. It's not the best option but it's the first one I found
I'm going to elaborate on the C'tan's brainwashing.>The initial influence is a mind-altering field projected by a shard (which appears to be a shiny or otherwise attention-grabbing trinket) that subtly influences nearby individuals, drawing their focus to it and making it seem precious. Those who see it believe it to be important or valuable and want to possess it.>Someone who bears a shard has entered Stage I, in which they slowly become more attached to their shard and more protective of it.>In Stage II, the bearer begins to have odd ideas concerning the shard, such as an impulse to take it somewhere or perform some ritualistic activity with it -- these ideas are inserted by the shard, and carefully crafted to seem like normal impulses to the bearer.>The end result is Stage III: the victim is thoroughly brainwashed by the inhuman intelligence, hapilly obeying and worshipping the will of the C'tan. There is no known cure for those who have reached this stage of enslavement.
>>66032227Wait. We did? Not exactly seeing it. Maybe these could instead be a Rogue Trader Jew Necrons? They ply the sector and trade things
Okay, do we want to keep going with a fourth thread?
Sure. I have a bit of time till I go to work
>>66032326Maybe?There are still the Necrons to do.I have an idea as to how a peasant could end up in a Overlord's body, an idea involving a certain C'tan.
>>66032344The Deceiver? I can see that happening.
>>66032326I'm here for a 4th thread.
>>66032344>>66032372>>66032396In that case, let's ride this one out first. I'll archive it when it dies.
>>66032326A round of applause for Chronicler Anon who is writing this shit down. Champion.
>>66032353You think too big. Someone else plans on the small scale.
>>66032515...A lone Admin scribe?
>>66032611Creed would have fun hiding those Titans
>>66032617Where do you think we learned it?
>>66032635The loyalist Titans did fight at Cadia so maybe they did learn from Creed?
>>66032536>>66032611>>66032617>>66032635>>66032842Now you're just dancing around it, but two can do this dance.I'm taking about another entity, one mentioned in this very thread, which holds the entire dynasty dancing to its tune. A certain being which dances with fate and brings woe and suffering to those caught in its deadly dervish.Our C'tan made our Dynasty into its brainwashed slaves, and they were buried after it was destroyed by the Silent King. In recent times, the Imperium (or something else) accidentally woke them up, and the shards that stayed with them have been ruling them, while other shards spread across the galaxy have been manipulating unlucky thralls into bringing them to the Venaro Sector, so it can return to its full power and glory.
some of the chains of rolling stuff got a little convolutedcould I have someone do a real fast summary of the CSM warband and Crons?
>>66033989a summary of everything in terms of rolls and short descriptions of the ideas behind them would be nice as well if anyone has those
Anyone wanna make a nap of the sector?
>>66035093Next thread, we're on the brink now. Somebody link the new thread in here, quick.
>>66032326>>66032372>>66032396Fourth thread done.>>66035693
