    The mask is cool to the touch, moulding seamlessly around your eyes and brow, framing your cheeks as you lift it into place. An emerald glow seaps from beneath it as the nanomechanical constructs that compose your face bond to the ancient artifact, making you whole.

    You are Xeno, formerly a mortal tau and now lord among necrons, ascended by your unwilling association with the Lady of Infinite Abyss, the incomprehensibly ancient entity that plucked you from an eternity of frozen stasis to serve her will. What began as a simple mission of survival has become a quest to rid the galaxy of the threat of your mistress' former lieutenant, the Dusk of Uncountable Suns... the same abomination that stole your daughter from you and turned her into a mindless killer.

    For the first time since your awakening, you feel hate. A hate like you have never felt before and, you hope, will never feel again. Drone was a part of you, born of your heart and hands and mind, the purest and most good to come of your transformation. That such a noble intention could ever be corrupted to so sinister a purpose makes your fluids boil, threatening to overwhelm the rational parts of your mind.

    Now that your ascension is complete, only one task remains; the complete and utter annihilation of the Dusk of Uncountable Suns.

    What do?

    The illusion of high orbit persists as you stride down the causeway towards the chamber's exit. Nothing of significance remains here and given the choice you'd see it sealed for all time in memory of your Drone's sacrifice.

    As you approach, you cast a single glance at the obsidian portcullis sealing you into the vault of twilight, willing it to retract and allow you to exit. Freed, your scarabs swarm out the portal to secure the area, preceding your echoing hoofsteps down the corridor.

    Roll 1d100

    Sparks fly from your solenoids as silver fluids ooze from distressed fiber-bundles, severely hampering your ability to mount a reasonable counterattack. Your reactions are slowed, limbs weighing down like leaden weights. Even your claws seem dull, catching on the armored warrior-forms and leaving only shallow grooves in their hardened necrodermis.

    The phalanx closes in around you, bludgeoning you with their gauss flayers until you fall to the ground in a ruined heap. Silver teeth grit in a half-rictus, the bare necrodermis of your skull laid bare. Forced to your hands and knees, you're filled with horror as you see your Drones crushed underfoot by the Dusk's soulless killers. Blow upon falls on your back, blinding you with damage warnings as entire systems begin to fail.

    You summon the last of your strength for a desperate counter-attack, but the damage is to severe. Another strike forces your knees give out beneath you and you; you fall, sprawling to the ground, static filling your gaze as your optics whir stutteringly to focus on the silver-shod foot that crushes your skull.

    'Wake... up, Xeno. Wake up and smell... the ashes.'

    Your vision flickers, resolving into a complex diagnostic pattern of necron runes as your optics recalibrate. Wherever you are, you have been tampered with - neither your arms nor legs respond, bound to an enormous slab and somehow disconnected from your primary neuromotor system.

    A skeletal figure stands before you, tatters of green silk swathing its ancient chassis. It seems to regard you as something of an anomaly, cocking its head to one side as if it were examining a particularly unusual insect pinned to a board. The irony of the analogy isn't lost on you.

    The Dusk lays a hand on its breast and the throbbing power core installed there, its malign luminescence refracting through the resurrection orb piercing its palm. 'I really must thank... you for retrieving these... trinkets. That meddlesome... insect took great... pain to ensure that I would... not find them.

    'Now, I suppose you... are wondering why I've brought... you here...'

    The chamber brightens, not with the greenish illumination of a necron tomb, but the clean, bright light of a tau medical bay. The room seems mostly intact with only cursory signs of conversion behind deck plates or between bulkheads. Row upon row, rank upon rank of transparent vertical cylinders stretch off farther than you can see, in each one floating a familiar form.

    You tune out the Dusk's tiresome monologue. For an entity with no longs, he's incredibly long-winded. Instead, your mind turns inwards, focusing on your body and every single nanite that composes it. Diagnostics run for every conceivable element of your configuration, trying to ascertain your level of functionality.

    You've been stripped of the Lady's artifacts; the power core, resurrection orb and death mask have all been violently removed, leaving scraps of stray interface code to clutter your subconscious processes. One remains, however, although whether by intent or oversight you're unsure; your staff of light remains bound to you, waiting to materialize at your command.

    A block has been placed between your primary neuromotor vertebra, blocking all communication with the rest of your body. There's no way to override it mentally, the hardware itself has to be destroyed.

    Your staff coalesces into your hand with its customary emerald spark, held forth in a defensive stance as you brace for the Dusk's attack - but even as the lord lunges toward you, the deckplate underneath buckles with an enormous impact! A massive, silver form forces its way through the floor, screeching with a sound like a hull breach as it bludgeons the Dusk with one of its massive foreclaws.

    Drone has arrived.

    The Dusk of Uncountable Suns sputters in surprise as you twist your staff in the wound, wrenching his phylactery free from its moorings. Light drains from his eyes as his optics lock on you, his hate almost palpable.

    'You... are insignificant! Just another... construct! Something she built!'

    His next words are cut short as you pull your staff free, along with a significant chunk of his inner workings. Casually, you stoop to retrieve your power core, tearing it out of his chest.

    'This is... not the end! I am eternal! I am the... Dusk of... Uncountable... Suns!'

    You plant a hoof on the necron's spinal conduit, preventing him from squirming away as you slide the power core into its proper receptacle. The resurrection orb comes next as you tear his arm right out of his socket, casting it away like a broken toy once the artifact is returned to you.

    Tendrils of emerald lightning course across the Dusk's shattered form as he begins to phase out, but a simple gesture from your resurrection orb binds him in place. His ravings become more desperate, more panicked as you clench your fist, his body responding to the gesture by crumbling into dust!

    You draw the necrodermis into you, a surge of power fluctuating your systems as you consume the lord's superior form, radically reconfiguring your own chassis to meet the exceptional specifications of your defeated foe. In an isolated corner of your mind, the Dusk rants and struggles, maddened by the loss of his body and mental confinement.

    You delete the worthless waste of processor cycles without a second thought.

    Right, so, are they clones? Was I ever an individual, or am I simply the first successful clone of some other Tau? Or are they just the rest of the crew, who weren't able to accept the plycantary? Please, can you be more specific?

    You explore the clone bank as the Lady attempts to answer your many questions, although whether she's willing or able is still a question. Every vat you examine contains a dead, deformed replica of your mortal coil, each one possessing varying degrees of hybridization with necron technology - apparently, the trauma caused each one to expire in turn.

    The Lady's answers are growing more frustratingly vague and you perceive a yawning abyss that seems to be swallowing her up. This isn't at all like the stasis that the Weaver entered - this is death, the last vestiges of consciousness slowly unraveling.

    'You have made me proud, my little insect,' she seems to whisper, her voice fading from your mind. 'Perhaps one day I will be able to thank you for your service properly.'

    As the Lady's consciousness finally fades away, you're finally given a moment to relax. It seems like you've been fighting forever, and while you no longer tire like a mortal, the sheer volume of experience you've accumulated these past few hours has been singularly exhausting. So it's no surprise, as you settle against the reassuring bulk of your Drone spyder, that the fluctuations in your perception go unnoticed.

    'Fool saal,' grunts the first, 'machines don't dream. Not even machines like this one.'

    'As you say, Aun, so it is.'
