>>71338522>UltramarinesNot to be unexpected, their Gene-seed remains surprisingly pure after millennia of degradation. Of course one can never be too sure if one's truly of Ultramarine stock considering how many they took in from the shattered legions.But a progenitor to be proud of nonetheless. And as the most numerous one could also say they're the most varied.Gene-seed purity (d10)

>>71338602>A New Generation - Gene-seed is slightly divergent (usually because of attempts to breed out flaws, real or not), leading to the Chapter being less linked to its progenitorHmmm, something has gone wrong. The pure seed of the progenitor has been tainted, it is slight but noticeable. It furthers the distance with our forefathers.Chapter Demeanour (d10)

>>71338861Considering we're cannibal Romans, honestly both fit kinda well. >>71338861What if we go the other way and have some kind of Blood Angel chimeric nature? Blood Thirst is a thing. Perhaps an attempt at 'modulating' the BA with some Smurf blandness?Basically I think Vampire Roman is a e s t h e t i c
>>71338885I like your style.
>>71338885>>71338894I wonder if there is some greek/roman monster/god thing we can draw inspriation from for our chapter? I suppose we can figure that as we suss out more details.
>>71338868>>71338869>>71338870>Chapter Cult - The practices of the Chapter are weird and probably quite unsavory.Even amongst Space Marines the fervor with which we devour our enemies' minds for their information is discomforting. But it serves the purpose, for every mind, we take several new enemies of the Imperium are revealed, and the hunger sated for a moment. We have found strong brothers in the Blood Angels and their successors due to our shared ways. There is even some belief that perhaps we share some gene-seed with them.But we must keep distance, a son of Roboute losing himself to his hunger and a son of the Angel falling the same to his rage could have... disastrous results.
>>71338925Forgot, Figure of Legend (d100)>>71338912StrixThe strix is described as a large-headed bird with transfixed eyes, rapacious beak, greyish white wings,[a] and hooked claws in Ovid's Fasti. This is the only thorough description of the strix in Classical literature. Elsewhere, it is described as being dark-colored.The strīx (στρίξ,στριγός)[b] was a nocturnally crying creature which positioned its feet upwards and head below, according to a pre-300 BC Greek origin myth.[c] It is probably meant to be (and translated as) an owl, but is highly suggestive of a bat which hangs upside-down.The strix in later folklore was a bird which squirted milk upon the lips of (human) infants. Pliny in his Natural History dismissed this as nonsense[d][e] and remarked it was impossible to establish what bird was meant by this.[f] The same habit, where the strix foul-smellingly lactates onto an infant's lips is mentioned by Titinius, who noted the placement of a garlic on the infant was the prescribed amulet to ward against it.In the case of Ovid's striges, they threatened to do more harm than that. They were said to disembowel an infant and feed on its blood. Ovid allows the possibilities of the striges being birds of nature, or products of magic, or transformations by witches using magical incantations.
>>71338940I recall the Strix name. It was used in the thread where we made Owl Dragons. I think we should keep that image because it's cool and the symbol of owls for knowledge fits as well.Perhaps our chapter symbol is an owl perched on a skull?
>>71338885>be angel/roman mix, some kind of experiment apparently>things seem okay at first, omophagia didn't work but whatevs>find out about Red Thirst the bad way>BA bros step in and read us in on the secrets>don't want to drag the Angel's name through the dirt>have to hide this from Ultradads while still being Ultra>>71338912Wikipedia has a few mentioned, Empusa/Lamia, generic child eating monster lady with snake extras/powers. As well as the Strix, bird-vampires basically, with some bat features and familiars to witches.There's also the undead spirits who couldn't communicate with the living without being strengthened by drinking blood. Perhaps we have some Flesh Tearer in us after all, seeing the dead by drinking the blood of our foes?

>>71339013>The individual was a stalwart enemy of the servants of Chaos, and slew a Daemon PrinceNever let one doubt the strength of an Apothecary. Our brother was always in the thickest of the fray, a stalwart foe of the ruinous powers. And when the hour came that he faced a Daemon Prince, he faced it alone.And with his MIGHT, FURY, RIGHTEOUS ANGER, AND UNQUENCHABLE HUNGER. He slew the Daemon, tearing its throat out with his hands and teeth, sending back into its hellscape home.He feasted on the warp-born blood of a daemon, took of its foul flesh. But his rage burned brighter than any corruption.Chapter homeworld (d100)

Rolled 19 (1d100)>>71339092
>>71339088Basically, roman food-orgy indulgence/purging with a spiritual twist. Wanting to eat people is clearly corruption, right? So you drink some MORE corruption, then purge it all out along with your innate corruption. Bam, net loss of corruption. Sure, you need to drink deamonic blood regularly, and you're always hungry, and you're vomiting it out which is gross, but it's definitely legit, this is definitely not some Chaos-influenced ritual. Nothing is wrong with this. Drink up.
>>71339110Oh, and by purging I mean like blood-letting. It just feels so delightfully hedonistic to have secret blood drinking/letting rituals with wine, food and song. Roman Vampires, it just kinda works. >>71339128You get it!

>>71339148Yeah, the vomit is dumb.
>>71339148>but not really the vomiting part.Yeah I realised what that implied, so clarified with blood-letting. Vomiting is just needlessly icky, going for debauchery and hedonism, not gross factor.Also Roman vomiting is a myth it turns out, but the idea of mass consumption/purging still kinda works, and these are future space romans anyway. >>71339154Nice.

I'm almost getting antibody/white blood cell vibes from these guys. It might be a way to separate these Ultraboys from the Blood Angel types.
>>71339215Myth also states that Athena's mother was swallowed by Zeus. As a result, she was born inside his head and had to be broken out by cracking open his skull. Since the whole part Blood Angel thing, wouldn't the apothecary have been feeding his blood to neophytes like a Blood Priest? Could he have accidentally passed on daemonic knowledge as a result?
>>71339242Looks like we're sticking to the gud buk.

But nothing even an Ultramarine descendant would bat an eye at. "Oh so they're called Blood Priests, not Librarians? Still the same role and responsibilities?

I guess it helps we literally look like living statues of the Angels of Death we have in their shrines. Add some Roman profiles, some Angelic hair.. we look *good*, but then vampires always look appealing at first, don't they? Really helps get people donating when they get a glorious red-white-and-gold figure striding forth in robes or toga during a sermon to kneel at the altar too. Maybe we lend a couple brothers out now and then to the Cult. They're not brothers under arms of the Church, they're just.. guards on loan from a pious Chapter is all. >>71339489I put forward a motion we also have a grudge against the Night Lords. We just both kinda hate each other, not as much as our main enemy, but if given a choice between random traitors or Night Lords, we wanna punch their screechy wannabe vampires in the face.

If Angelbros find out we're maybe kinda daemonically corrupted on top of vampires, we're also doomed. Nobody but NOBODY gets to know what goes on inside the Bacchinalia room. Also it just occurred to me that the marble-skinned marines could probably suffer from light discomfort more easily like albinos. Let's make them sunlight-adverse while we're at it.

They've got more important shit to do than simulate an extra century of growth to see if anything weird happens.So for the first long while in a new Strix-marine's life, they're just a fairly ordinary marine with great hair and a dormant omophagea gland.Then when it kicks in, it kicks in HARD. There's a bonus round of initiation rituals, you drink some daemonblood, shit gets weird.. and then you're back on duty feeling thirsty. A few more decades, and you start to notice you've become a lot paler, and are on track to become another marble-skinned Elder of the Chapter. There's probably also a greater degree of interest in "who's geneseed is implanted in who", with "Sires" and "Bloodlines" too, because.. vampires. Initiates compete to be implanted with the geneseed of a more prestigious sire while being tested.
>>71339662>is that why they haven't been fighting to escape as of late?
>>71339685The Black Dragons literally go full Baraka/Wolverine. Some BA successors are far more bloody and fuck you than us. Lamenters and Mantis Warriors went renegade for a period and sided with traitors.As long as we keep fucking up Chaos we should be good.
>>71339670We drink daemon blood as part of our chapter rituals.That's at least "kinda fucky" on the heresy-o-meter if nothing else.
>>71339724True, we probably need to DA and keep SOME of our rituals at least out of the open eye.
We really goddamn hate Daemons, what about a particular Daemon in particular?Someone mentioned the Chapter Hero ate the heart of the daemon to stop it's immortality, which is metal as hell. Maybe it's still out there, but no longer undying and paranoid as fuck one of us will find it and kill it for good? What God's Daemons do we really, REALLY fucking hate with the biggest murderboner beside the Black Templars? I assume Khorne what with the bloody blood and blood blood.
>>71339790Why not all of the chaos gods equally? Since each one possess an aspect that we can easily fall under if we don't keep ourselves in check.
>>71339803>Khorne: Rage.>Slaanesh: Indulgence.>Tzeentch: Hope.>Nurgle: Blood STDs.
>>71339803 can see the Khorne and Slaanesh. Tzeentch is possible, but I'm just not feeling it for these lads. Not sure how we're Nurgle-ish. >>71339832...ew.
>>71339803>to ascend the ranks within the chapter's higher echelons, an argent strix marine must undergo and suffer through a ritualized torture.>He is left within a room, where no light may enter, to stew within himself, to face his own soul and know its face alone and untouched by the influences of the mortal realm>this is believed to open his eyes more to the realm beyond, the lands of the warp. as well as teaching him what manner of extravagances and hedonism he may have unknowingly practiced, and thus purge them from his mind >if he endures this isolation and sensory deprivation, he is then tossed, unarmed, into the foulest swamps of the chapter's home world, to survive unaided for a number of weeks or even months. this is to teach him of how easily the purity of the body can be compromised, flesh corrupted and mind weakened with fever. It also teaches him how he must move forward to conquer his foes, as waiting will only leave him and the chapter to fester and rot.>then he is taken to fight the foulest xeno spawn the chapter has managed to capture, but his given no arms to defend himself, and his wrists are tied behind his back. this is to remove any lingering fear of death from his heart, and to show him how bloodlust is useless without a calm, calculated mind to steer it. Thus the marine must use trickery and his own agility to trick the beasts into defeating themselves>the last test, a marine is set within a locked room, with all manner of maddened scrawlings and secrets writ upon the walls, which are also adorned with artifacts of most foul origins, all speaking of a way out. the purpose of this test is to show the marine that one must not put hope into forces outside of his and the chapter's own hands, to not delve into the curiosities that lead to the dark or take the easiest path. for all of these will lead to ruination. the portion of this task, is to steel the marines resolve and loyalty,cont
>>71339685Seems pretty good.
>>71339848>for it is to instill a loyalty to his chapter, believing they will not leave him to wither and die, and harden his resolve in thus belief beyond even that of the standard astartes. On the verge of starvation, is when the test ends.>the final test comes soon after, as the newly appointed captain must then lead his comrades on a hunt of those who had failed the "four temptations" and must be put to the sword and pyre.>only then, is the marine considered fit to lead his own company
>>71339841>Tzeentch is possible, but I'm just not feeling it for these lads.>"Why do we hold ourselves to such a narrow way of thinking when we can do more with our gifts?" (The negative aspect of rejecting the Codex without realizing that it was more akin to a guidebook rather than religious text.)>Not sure how we're Nurgle-ish.>"Why care for ourselves when eternal death is the end for us?" (The negative aspect of Duty Unto Death with the rejection of Mens et Manus)
You know I'm rather enamoured by the idea that part of the whole demon blood drinking thing is that it actually works in killing the demons permanently.
How do Dreadnoughts work with the Chapter? I feel there's some potential with vampires and coffins, but nothing comes to mind. It's basically just stock BA.Maybe we have some figure of note in a gifted Furioso Dreadnought for some past deed, but that's about all I've got. A thought, we definitely have Red Thirst. Black Rage though? Maybe the Ultramarine in us is enough to cut a connection that primal. Also helps differentiate us from stock Blood Angel successors, we're some weird halfway point between the two once-Legions.
>>71339917I can see Dreadnoughts acting akin to Gargoyles in a way. Since their armor plates could have artistic designs that make them seem more like works of art. Immortalized in spirit so that we will know the soul itself is more wondrous than the flesh that housed it.But yeah I like the idea of them acting like gargoyles and just ambushing a party of smucks from out of nowhere.
>>71339954>Gargoyle painted to match the decor of their current warzone>making the machine spirits with particularly savage, wishing to end their enemies quickly so they may return to their chapters colors
>>71339978Now that's a galaxy brain moment right there.
>>71339986>particularly clever Dreadnought marks his shoulder with the blood of whatever he just killed after the ambush to help appease it with the Chapter's red shoulder at least
>Recounting of the legendary meeting of Chief Apothecary Fuhror and the Khornate Daemon Prince Malfarum Illdactus.The fires blazed around Fuhror, he knelt cradling the head of a brother whose body had been broken and had his life stolen. He had sired this initiate, he was of his stock, he held the body as gently as a father did his newborn son. Somewhere to his left, another gave out a pained death shout, met by the laughter of the Bloodletter that cut him down. Slowly the apothecary lifted his head towards the horizon of the battlefield, the fresh and safe gene-seed of his fallen son hanging limply in a secure container from his hand.He spotted the leader of this Warband, the one who brought these Bloodletters, the one who led these berzerkers. The foul beings figure jostled, clutching his stomach in laughter as he cut down another marine of the Argent Strix. Bodies of the fallen decorated the red-skinned monstrosity's shining brass armor, impaled on its many spikes like trophies. Without even realizing it something snapped inside him, some hidden wrath and hunger awoke. "No more." Fuhor growled out.As if possessed he lurched to a standing position, standing like a statue amidst the chaos of the battle before he set off in a sprint. The stone cracked and crumbled beneath his steps, blood from those struck low stained his ceramite greaves. All around him the Chapter and Warband fought to see the other extinct. But Fuhror's course never strayed.From the crowd a Bloodletter jumped, coming at him from the right, up ahead, with inhumane agility. It's long red tongue lashing the air, a shout of pure anger piercing the air, claws outstretched, and sword pulled back.It did nothing to deter the Apothecary. With barely any acknowledgment, Fuhor slammed his right fist into the head of the creature. A sickening crunch filling the air as the apothicarion drill pierced the Neverborn's skull. He never broke his stride, leaving the body behind to disperse back-Cont.
>>71340003into the warp energies that spawned it. Never noticing that the drill had broke from the power of the blow.He closed on the great prince. Sliding to a stop before it as it turned to regard him. It let out a low chuckle as it took in the dwarfed form of the Apothecary. "YOU seek to slay me?" It asked in an almost disbelieving tone, turning fully it revealed the limp form of another Argent Strix gripped in its claw. A surge of anger wafted off of Fuhor at the sight. The Daemon perked up with a malicious smirk as if it could taste his anger. "Ah yes, there is rage in you, I'll give you that. Perhaps to avenge a fallen brother?" It asked in a demeaning tone as it plunged its clawed hand into the chest of the fallen marine, shredding the armor, plucking out the gene-seed of the marine and shredding it beyond recovery. "You do not even have any weapons." The prince kneeled, as it spoke. "Perhaps you wish to beg for mercy instead?" It asked with a Chesire grin as it drank deeply of the Apothecary's fury, goading him further.To the Daemon's surprise, Fuhor launched himself at the creature. Using his enhanced strength, and powerful armor. Fuhor leaped several feet into the air, landing a powerful blow against the creature. It gave a shout of alarm, standing, and backpedaling, as one of its four horns broke, flying through the air and lodging in the stone. Blood ran from the broken crest of where one of his horns at once been. "YOU INSOLENT WELP!" It shouted, shaking the air and making those nearby nearly froth with rage. No longer did it look at the Apothecary like a toy, but as a foe. "I HAVE BURNED A THOUSAND WORLDS! SLAUGHTERED MILLIONS! REDUCED MOUNTAINS TO RUBBLE!" It yelled as its own anger took control, the ground trembling slightly with each achievement called."I have no words for you abomination, only death." Was Fuhor's calm reply as he launched himself at his enemy once more.Cont.
>>71340137Powerful fist narrowly missed Fuhor's running form as the Daemon attempted to strike him. Each narrowly missing but the last. The Daemonic claws of the damned monster left three large gashes across the chest of Fuhor, a small trickle of blood flowing out of each, the Khornate monstrosity's power preventing the wound from sealing.With the small opening he had, the beast's guard down from its many blows. He lept through the air once more, clinging himself to the chest of the creature, gripping hard enough to prevent himself from sliding. The Daemon shouted in anger and rage as its skin tore beneath Fuhor's iron grip. Freeing one hand, Fuhor tore his helmet away. Curly locks of gold flowing to the wind, half his face an almost reflective white pierced by black veins, like rich marble.His face twisted in fury he clamped on the neck of the prince, and tore and twisted with all his inhuman strength, tearing chuck after chuck from the throat of the Lord of Skull's pet. Each bite only added to his anger, making the hunger all the more unbearable and voracious. Its blood burned like liquid fire but brought a soothing reprieve from the now all-consuming need to devour. The corruption of the warp sought to turn him. But his faith and righteous wrath burned brighter, only letting it fuel him to ever greater destruction of the being before him.Regaining its senses partially the Daemon wrapped one of its massive armored claws around Fuhor, and threw him to the ground. Clutching its throat it fell to its knees, its own blood on its tongue, flooding his warped body even as the wound regenerated. "Damn... you." It choked out in primal hate as the wound finished healing. It tried to stand, only to fall back to its knees in surprise.It felt... weaker! With fire in its eyes, it looked to see the face of Fuhor as he stood, the Daemon's still-beating heart in its hands. Causing it to look in shock to the hole in its chest that healed much slower.Cont.
>>71340245Fuhor took a bite from the beating heart, drinking deeply of its sanguine fluid. There was not much to be gained without the Daemon's mind. But one thing did fill Fuhor's mind, the thing that would win him this battle. "Malfarum Illdactus, I banish you.""What!" Malfarum exclaimed in shock as he heard his true, Daemonic, name. A Daemon's name had power over them, and Malfarum was no different, even now as the words had barely left the Apothecary's lips he felt the threads of the Immaterium weave over his body like chains."You will plague the world of men no more, banished from the realms of humanity, forced to the farthest forgotten stars." Firey chains materialized around the prince, a circle of fire appearing around him as he began to sink into the ground."NO!""And there you shall remain until the day comes that the Argent Strix hunt you down, and destroy your soul till the end of this universe and the next." The heart healed the bite taken out of it, continuing its drum-like beating."NO!" Shouted Illdactus as little more than his head remained in the Materium. With his final moments, he spit a foul hex. "CURSE YOU, APOTHECARY! I CURSE YOU, YOUR SONS, YOUR BROTHERS! NEVER SHALL YOU KNOW PEACE NEVER SHALL YOU KNOW RELIE-!" Its head was submerged, spirit and body, little difference between them, banished from this world.All around the field the battle ended. The Berzerkers, few remaining, scattered or were cut down. The Immaterium grew weak with the banishment of Khorne's prince and the Bloodletters faded, returned to their bloody lands in the warp.Stepping towards the severed horn of the prince, brothers of the Argent Strix gathered around the hero. He pulled it from the ground, lifting it aloft his head, beating heart in his other hand, the last remnants of the Daemon, for now. A cry of victory sounded across the field.Cont. by small epilogue.
>>71340354"Brother Fuhor, please let us help you!" Asked one of the three other Apothecaries assembled around their teacher, his tone on the verge of begging. "You will die if we don't do anything."Fuhor merely waved him away. "I've made my choice." The entire front of his body was red, coating the floor of the Thunderhawk. The wounds across his chest had not healed but instead grown in their intensity. "There is nothing more that can be done for me, and I will not die on my back, or kneeling." He said, allowing for no reproach in his tone."We... understand." They said looking between each other before backing away."Good." He whispered as he stood straight, stance wide and strong, locking his armor in place. Speaking his final words with the last of his strength he declared. "Let me die not on the ground, but standing. Defiant against the dark that sought to claim me, as my brothers and sons have gone before I did." And so he died standing, not giving the ruinous powers the satisfaction of striking him low.
Well, gotta sleep now. Don't die.
Who do we get along well with? We're notably divergent genetically, so unfortunately the Black Templars don't wanna rip-and-tear with us.Blood Angel successors probably get on well with us, at least we have similar problems and they don't need to hide the big problems from us, even if we are the stuffy half-brother.How do Ultramarine successors think of us though? We're pretty Codex-compliant, but still the weird goth sibling amongst all the other bureaucracy-nerds.Are we F A S T enough for White Scars? Do we give a shit about mortals enough for Salamanders and/or Wolves? Do we have a reliquary worthy of the Blood Ravens visiting? Is our dark aesthetic and moodiness enough for the Raven Guard to invite us to poetry slams? Can't imagine the AdMech much cares either way about us, at least the Sororitas like us probably?

>>71340858I realised halfway through writing it, it was basically just Grey Wardens but with extra steps, but Wardens are pretty metal anyway so making them heart-eating vampires couldn't hurt. Quite what happens to the soul of one who undergoes the Rite of Fuhor is something the Chaplains tend to avoid. It most certainly returns to the Emperor, they're sure. Quite how it avoids complete destruction is.. a miracle, no doubt.
Need to sleep too; write, question, shitpost or bump as you see fit. I like these guys.
So what is the favored close quarters weapon of these guys? do they take trophies of any kind?
I wanted to flesh out, heh, the Holy Roman Vampires, any more world building ideas, certain chapter rituals, iconography, stories, etc?>The hive world of Vetus Sanguine is the home of and recruiting grounds for the Argent Strix>Within the hive Sanguine Maximi the fortress monastery of Imperatoria Corde lies, dimly lit, among the clouds and above the white marbled Capitoline spires district.>When garrisoned at home, during the codex mandated prayer and rest times, the Marines are known to walk in the Capitoline and mingle with the Sancti Patricii Impiriales, the Ecclesiarchical governing class.>Or they may be found in the Aventine spires district, preaching His name, scouting neophytes or collecting the Sanguine Tribute, a ritual bloodletting in the Emperor's name, the blood is collected and “blessed” as an offering to Him at the chapter’s morning meal and prayers.>Certain bloodlines, companies of Astartes sired by one of the original Captain's gene seed, collect from different districts of Maximi and hold sway over factions of Patricii and Factorum owners, “gifting” chapter serfs and Voicing support of their policies in the Senate, Patricii in turn “gift” funds, weapon production facilities, artisans and exclusive rights for a Blood Cadre, a company, to exact their tithe in districts under their governorship.>What this amounts too is proxy company feuds to attain blood for consumption via political scheming and corporate espionage, keeping the church happy so the nice men in tall hats don't come knocking and securing production of armaments.
So how do we swing this so we're cool with Ordo Malleus? That could answer a lot of questions in regards to how much leway we get for being demon eating vampires.I mean, it's not exactly unusual considering the Exorcist creation rites has them being possessed by warp spirits and forcibly casting it out .

>>71344238Dark Valedictors could actually be a name for these 'Rite of Fuhor' dudes.A Dark Farewell sounds about right for willingly corrupting yourself to zero-sum your own soul and a daemon's undying nature. >>71342433I figure we're kinda on their good side, if we're both a little leery of each other. We're secretive as HELL about what exactly we do, but at the same time.. a Strix-marked Daemon is a panicky little shit if they escape the Rite, and can be put down for good with their next death. That's got to put a smile on any daemon hunter's face.Basically "weird little half-blood shits, but they fight a good fight and now and then put a powerful daemon down for good. So.. good enough for us."Meanwhile the Strix are happy to fight alongside other people who really hate daemons and cultists with a massive murderboner, but keep at a distance enough to hide their own secrets. From a puritanical point of view we're pretty sketch, best not let the issue come up in the first place.>>71344238It's part of why I love these guys. BA descendants, they're just another flavour of the original. But these ones are Sons of Ultramar first. It's not just an aesthetic, they follow the Codex and manage lands and logistics before descending into the fray. Keeping the peace, acting as exemplars where they can.They're stuck between two different places and trying to be two different things at the same time, I love it. Plus I mean goddamn roman vampires who become marble statues in appearance in their old age.
>>71340396>>71340354>>71340245>>71340137>>71340003May he walk proudly into the Emperors eternal Light.
>>71340606The Wolves of Fenris would instantly smell the various..divergent traits on us even the scent of Chaos. However their instincts do not tell them to attack us and after observing us for a time they decide we are alright.They might think us a bit uptight generally but our battle fury impresses them and a primal hunger for the blood of our enemies, coupled with a risk to go berserk is something they understand intimately.That which truly decides whether or not they will call us Brothers or just weirdos is our ability to hold our Mjold.
>>71345222 (blessed digits)>Plus I mean goddamn roman vampires who become marble statues in appearance in their old age.I get what you mean, the numbers aligned perfectly to give us a unique chapter that is both utterly polarised within itself but also whole.I want them to be bros with the Vulka Fenrika and Astral Claws.Mostly because just mentioning all three chapters in the same sentence will cause aneurysms in Inquisitorial heads.Now that I think about it, if we manage to prove our battle prowess when it comes to food and drink then the Wolves would naturally flex some muscle to keep the Ordos off our backs.
>>71345689We're pretty dang pious and hate anything Chaos-related, aren't the Astral Claws y'know.. renegade? Wolves sure, we're personable guys and we probably give at least a professional shit about mortals if not genuinely caring about them. Let's have a drink and take turns kicking xenos in the dick or lack thereof. Great fun, werewolf and vampire themed party!
>>71345957>aren't the Astral Claws y'know.. renegade?Yes but when we look at their deeds we see no betrayal of He who sits on the Throne. From that point on they are merely very divergent sons of Guilliman, have we really any right to judge them given our own peculiar habits?In fact considering we and they are both Codex followers with massive quirks I dare we would even get along. Perhaps we "misplace" some armor and supplies every now and again through some logistical mishap that we are very sorry sorry about, should the Inquisition ask.> Great fun, werewolf and vampire themed party!The sagas of our drinking and fighting will reverberate through the Aett for millennia!
Somebody create a page with everything recorded so I may read everything you guys make about this chapter later! For now, I'll go to bed.
>>71344238>Our guys are going to have a massive schizo-tism.In a way it makes some form of sense, because if they see themselves as ticking time bombs then they're probably going to hang onto what trace of stability they're going to get.
>>71348282I hadn't thought of that and yeah it makes sense but that also means they are in massive risk of becoming unhinged with Guillimans editorial decrees.
Anything interesting with the Primaris Marines, or is it basically just a model update for them?
>>71348497Sounds like Guilliman is going to have to do what his own dad could not. Be a good father.>>71348564I'd say there would probably a mix of opinions on them ranging from them simply thinking it's basically a way for them to do their methods more effectively, to questioning why they have to be replaced like this when they done so much for their father, to seeing this as a new challenge.
My take is Argent Strix will hang back as they watch Guilliman's new rule. Just keeping quiet and trying to figure some things out. They've clung onto the Codex, onto Piety, onto whatever keeps them true to their oaths despite the corruption they endure and cultivate for millennia. And now their Spiritual Liege has just thrown the rulebook out the window and told them to stop with the reverence already. Of course he's right, he's the Emperor's Son, their Gene-Father.. but what now? What now is their rock, their centre to endure the whispers of the Ruinous Powers? So they follow the old rituals for the time being, pushing out the doubt that now sleeps in them.Should they keep their course? Cast aside the Codex? Perhaps even follow the Angel's path instead, if such a thing is even possible? They're not alone in having the wind knocked out of them by the new reforms and Edicts, but it still hits them hard. The reaction to Primaris fairly typical, but they're still emblematic of this uncertain new way.
>>71348756They have two paths to follow broadly speaking. They can do what their brothers in the Astral Claws did and embrace the book with unrestrained autism and risk a massive schism with the Imperium and their Gene-father.Or they put their trust into their spiritual liege and follow his example, put faith in his dreams and dedicate themselves to him as he dedicates himself to the Imperium as a whole.The first path is risky. Already there are chasms between them and the rest of the Astartes also corruption is not something they are immune to, they simply have a method of fighting it. Yet all their massive flaws mean that if they break with Guilliman like the Claws then the Inquisition will take notice, conduct and investigation and declare them full blown traitors as opposed to mere renegades.Apart from meta reasons of not having two chapters do the same thing I believe the Strix should declare this new period of Roboutes return one of ideological self-discovery and spiritual reinvention.IMO they would look to their close brothers for guidance like other Ultramarines, Blood Angels and maybe even the Wolves and incorporate lessons from each one.
>>71346618Want me to see if the thread can be archived?
>>71349160I can do it.
>>71341055I'm thinking upsized space marine combat knives for the standard, named units get power weapons. Honour Guard and the Captain get access to the Relic Blades. Because I like the idea of vampire space marines carrying two handers into combat scything through enemy formations like a noonday stroll through a park.>>71349223Thanks m8.
So what happened to Malfarum's broken horn and heart? Were they discarded, sealed away? Or were they turned into weapons or chapter relics?I could see the horn being made into some sort of weapon and the heart being used in rituals.
>>71349285Flamberge. It's the Dark Souls in me, but still. Two-handed flamberge.Waved swords to scar and tear at flesh. But maybe the power weapons only, keep the non-officer marines with space-Gladius and space-Pilum. Also, our Chaplains should have power claws. Because spooky nosferatu helmeted pale-armored figured ripping things apart with giant metal claws while singing faux-latin praises to the Emperor is required.
>>71349347The horn is probably used in a set of weapons that only the captains and chapter master get access to (much like how there's supposedly a piece of the Emperor's armor in every set of Terminator Armor). The heart is probably watched over by the chapter's librarians. >>71349404>Also, our Chaplains should have power claws. Because spooky nosferatu helmeted pale-armored figured ripping things apart with giant metal claws while singing faux-latin praises to the Emperor is required.What if they can pick between the standard Crozius, the Power Claws like you mentioned, or the Eviscerator as a nod to their good standing with the Ecclesiarchy?
>>71349347The heart still beats, and it is by that the Chapter knows the Malfarum Illdactus still lives his own mortal life.. somewhere. Warp, Realspace, Webway.. it matters not. He has been Strix-marked, and has only one life to lose. One day, the heart will be made silent.Until that day, it pumps daemonblood for the Argent to use in their rituals, though only enough for special ceremonies. It is a potent blood too, one not lightly drank. Astartes have fallen in the rituals before, and given the Emperor's Peace before worse could befall their body and soul. Traditionally, Terminator honors in the Chapter incorporate the Heart, though given the scarcity of blood the unique ritual is sometimes delayed until the marine can partake, resulting in 'unblooded' Terminators.Other ceremonies of note are the succession of Chapter Master and Captain of the First Company, and +++DATA CORRUPTION+++
>>71349347>>71349483I can see the initiates having to drink from the heart as a final rite of initiation into their ranks.>Drink deeply of its warp damned blood. But do not let yourself be conquered by hatred incarnate. Drink, let your fury and faith burn brighter. Burn stronger than this abomination's corruption.inb4 that's what actually awakens the hunger not!red thirst.
>>71349571>>71349347>Imbide the blood of a powerful Daemon to make yourself stronger as a rite of intiation.>Fail and you die.>>71340874 was right, this is just Grey Wardens.
>>71349571Ah shit, the hybridisation actually kinda worked didn't it? Left to our own devices we suffer at worst a lesser form of Red Thirst only.But then we figured out a way to use it to our advantage kinda, and now cultivate it to destroy daemons. Neat.
What sort of Psyker abilties could the Strix Librarians have?
>>71349655Not sure, but I imagine subtly wouldn't be their thing.
People were throwing stuff out earlier and I really liked. "Death or glory, I care not which you seek!" It'd make a fitting battle cry.
>>71349819It's actually one of the things the Apothecary from Dawn of War 1 actually says when you select him.
>>71349756On tabletop they probably just get a depleted pool of Blood Angel powers, maybe one or two of the Malleus ones? I'm not too hot on actually playing the wargame.Lorewise, I think aside from the flashy blood-red energy bolts and such, they're surprisingly good at charms and glamours. More than once a squad with a Librarian has thrown off a camouflage behind extended enemy lines and started slaughtering the nearby foes. The fact it appears that they have stepped out of some especially dark shadows with warp-energies crackling is just gravy.
>>71349756>A support ability they can use is to give their comrades a facsimile of the same anger that Fuhor had to increase their close combat capabilities and willpower.>A more vulgar method of their abilities is to affect an enemy target with feeling like their blood is boiling them from the inside out. If it crits they explode like a organic bomb since they were getting boiled from the inside out.
>>71349836They stole our reliquary, we stole their words.
Possible battle cries."Death or glory, I care not which you seek!""Choke the enemy with our hate!""Scour the stars, let the galaxy burn!""Let the blood flow!"Incomprehensible shouts of anger.

Anything and everything that can be bought on the open market can be found on these worlds, and the local troops have access to the most advanced weapons, armor, and equipment.Truly our homeworld is blessed, for it has managed to retain its technological achievements stretching back to even the crusade. Plasma weapons aren't even a rare treasure.

Rolled 84 (1d100)I do like the self-destruction aspect riffed from the Grey Wardens. Explains too why we aren't incredibly daemon killers just by eating hearts. You gotta do some sketchy daemonhost prep-like stuff, then defeat and rip the heart out, then eat it and exorcise it just to make it mortal.The Rite is saved for vitally important daemons, Dark Valedictors aren't common in the records, and every one Heroes to the Chapter. Someone broke their immortal soul to kill a foe of humanity. They don't even get their rest at the end with the Emperor. That's pretty hardcore. Wouldn't be surprised if even Chapter Masters are respected after them. >>71350394Are we setting people on fire too? I mean, I'm cool with that too.

Though for the Astronomica, that's basically Moderate for them anyway.Probably about what you'd expect for a High Imperial world. There's call for law and order, and communications to the Imperium at large, but it's an established world that doesn't need massive oversight or people to make up for a lack of infrastructure. Not to mention the fact there are Astartes on the world, Arbites probably aren't as needed as they are on other Hives. If things get out of control in the underhive, it's just a training exercise for the marines where the Arbites would need to stage an assault. The Telepathica too, this is a recruiting world for us and we get first dibs on psykers if we think them suitable for life in the Chapter.

The air was thick with the stench of incense. Brother Victis plunged his hands into the marble basin, heaping a wash of water onto his face. “Bless the light... bless thine soul...”Chapter serfs knelt about the altar, silent and unmoving. “Give glory to the chapter...”Another wash of water cascaded down Victis’ brow. “Give reverence to the fallen...”A serf slowly approached the altar, drawing his arm over the length of the basin. Victis drew his blade and made an incision running the length of the serf’s arm. The liquid of life spilled forth into the basin. It pooled and swirled amongst the purified water. >Blood and water are sacred. >One as precious as the other. (Cont.)

>>71352929Victis rose to his feet, his golden hair gently resting over his crimson robes. In unison, they performed the final chant as Victis raised the iron chalice. “Drink... and let the essence of life flow into your body.” Emerging from the darkness, nine battle-brothers drank their fill of the fountain. As the last dregs remained, clotted and dark, Victis took his drink. Memories, thoughts and feelings flooded his mind. Honour, duty, and reverence. The serf’s heart was pure. As was the chapter. As were his brothers.“The Emperor protects!” Victis shouted with conviction, his brothers replying in kind. (Cont.)
I imagine all the recruits of true skill are poached by the Ecclisarchy for Sororitas, Inquisition for their Retinues and of course Astartes aspirants.The PDF, while not working with the dregs, don't have elite squads to work with like other worlds.

>>71353016A great knock reverberated around the room as Victis trained his vision on the Gene chamber’s hallowed door. Stained plas-glass windows as strong as steel let in little natural light. They displayed heraldry and great victories of the chapter’s past. Centrally the greatest displayed their first and most holy Chapter Master... the only Astartes known to the chapter to have held dual rank as Chapter Master and Chief Apothecarion. His brothers looked in disgust at the disruption of their most sacred and hidden ritual. “Clear the altar. I will see to this most rude interruption.” Victis strained through clenched teeth. He strode towards the chamber door in unrequited anger. The serfs covered the altar with a cloak of pure white and Victis’ brother’s stood statues against the honours that covered the chamber’s walls. (Cont.)

He bore the sigil of the Inquisition, and although rage flamed at the corners of his mind, he could not harm him. “Lord Victis! Bless-“ the man stammered, cut off mid sentence. “Speak plainly whelp.” Victis grunted. “Lord Inquisitor Geldram requests your presence.

After half a day waiting in meditation aboard the transport, he stepped out into the mass of writhing menials within the HQ. Not one bowed or nodded as he walked through them, though they parted a square metre as to not incur his wrath. His vox bead chimed, signifying his brothers had completed their supplications. “Ah! Sergeant Victis! This way please...” Cried a Inquisitorial seneshal. The old man was dressed in gray and black fatigues, holding a staff bearing the symbol of his office. He followed begrudgingly, heading out of the massive main plascrete corridor and into another. With each turn they made, the ostentation and ornaments covering the walls grew more cluttered and the menials less common. “The Lord has been waiting for your presence for over half a standard Imperial day. Though he understands you must have other, pressing duties.” The seneshal stopped, drawing out a great ring of keys, some polished finely and others covered in grime and cracks. “Here we are. Mind your manners, Sergeant.” he smiled wryly. (Cont.)

>>71353696I can toss a name for the CM though it's not much.>Cypriane Ludovic, Scourge of Chaos, Hunter of Witches, Guardian of Vetus Sanguine
>>71353802Fuck, it's better than anything I'd have been able to think of, and seems thematically appropriate.
>>71353811At the very least it's something to work with, and if it's not good it'll be a decent placeholder for when we get a more indepth Chapter Master.
>>71349347Turn that shit into a sword wielded by the CM. Or have it be the drill of the Cheif Apothecary.Actually that could be one of our minor differences while still being 'Codex-adherent' combination of roles. CM is also the Chief Apothecary.
>>71353802Chapter Master and Chief Apothecarion Cypriane Ludovico of the Blood Priests chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. Imperial Lord of the Vetus system by decree of the High Council of Terra. Scourge of Chaos, by his banishment of a Greater Daemon of Chaos and the cleansing of a daemonic incursion. Honoured as the Guardian of Vetus Sanguine by Marneus Calgar for his dedication to the preservation and protection of Imperial Munitions and Citizenry.
>>71353891Let's see how bout this.>Chapter Master and Chief Apothecarion Cypriane Ludovico of the Argent Strix chapter of the Adeptus Astartes. Imperial Lord of the Vetus system by decree of the High Council of Terra. Scourge of Chaos, by his banishment of a Greater Daemon of Chaos and the cleansing of a daemonic incursion. Honoured as the Guardian of Vetus Sanguine by Chapter Master of the Ultramarines for his dedication to the preservation and protection of Imperial Munitions and Citizenry.Changing it to just chapter gives a little more legroom till we really settle on a timeframe for when this CM was in power or at least till we put some between the founding.Cause so far we seem to be.Founded < Fuhor's battle during ??? < Current Era(likely Cypriane Ludovico as CM/CA)
>>71353843I imagine for simple logistical reasons there is some kind of 'de facto Chief Apothecary' who performs much of the duties of the role, just because the Chapter Master can't be doing everything.Not sure what the title would be though. Probably Blood Priest or similar. But traditionally the Chapter Master also holds the role of Chief Apothecary. If another Company Captain is nominated for the role, they must learn the basics of the craft. While not a true Apothecary, any Chapter Master of the Argent Strix can operate a Narthecium and recover the gene-seeds of his brothers if called to it. Indeed, part of the title's regalia is the Narthecium of Fuhor himself, though the right to wield it is often deferred to the Blood Priest/insert better name here to ensure that it is used on the battlefield, and not merely held as trophy.
Apothecarion is the name of where Apothecaries work. A Chapter Hospital, basically.
>>71353935>Not sure what the title would be though.Let's keep it simple and stick with Chief Apothecary. To the chapter itself, Chief Apothecary and Chapter Master mean the same thing. To outsiders they might assume they are two different people.But if we still need a fancy title then I'm down for Vitae Legate.

Though the idea of one sneaking in such shiny armor has not lost it's humor on me.Now that I think about it, the farther up the ranks you go, the shinier the armor becomes as a symbolic way of showing that you understand the weight of the Sun's (and by that we mean the God Emperor's) burden as a protector of the realm.
>>71354149We needed a resupply of bolters after the Blood Ravens visited.They valiantly drove back the Ork looters that had silently and mysteriously teleported into the armory, hacked the cogitator array and picked the physical locks that secure weaponry stored there, however the orks managed to teleport out again without leaving any trace or even spores. Very mysterious, but our Chapter Master congratulated them for their heroism, and presented them with a ceremonial cyclonic torpedo warhead on their vessel, with several meltabombs attached to it in a novel fashion.The Blood Ravens were rather anxious to leave soon after being delivered the gift, in hindsight. I'm not sure I knew of that ceremonial gift either before that day, but apparently it's one of our more obscure traditions.

Know pity but not hate. For we too know the price of taint, to lose his blessing even if only for a moment. But we also know that such malformities can be used to serve him all the better. Do not lash at him for his curse. But instead teach him to serve the Emperor, as you do." - Unnamed Chaplain of the Argent Strix.
>>71354179Dumb/retarded question to ask but what is the program you're using for sprite creation? I can't rightly recall what the name of it was.
>>71354119>>71354203Heres a template structured for the Chapter. I left all company symbols empty for our filling in. Also I structured it close to the Codex's demands, with a slight deviation making CM/CA a dual role and the Apothecarion only answerable to the CM/CA.

>>71354345Chapter Generator.>>71354366Perhaps we should have an 11th company for extra scouts? Extra scouts due to our high rate of combat.>>71354394I'll make a new thread for us to do that anon.
>>71354394How about a chaos warband to find out what our nemesis' forces are like? Even if mortal, they still will want to strike out at us with follower, perhaps recovering the heart will reverse it, somehow.
>>71354402As rolled we can only have 10 companies, so 1 other company would have to go to have 2 scout companies. ie. 9th company ceases being a reserve battle company and becomes a scout company.
>>71354402An 11th Company might do since we're also more than likely having to burn through Initiates during the rituals and combat. Thank you! May the light of the Emperor shine upon you.
>>71354424Eh, Codex-adherent chapters tend to take a lot of liberty. Like the Tyranic War veterans, or Red Scorpians and their squad Apothecaries.
