+Intro+In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium there is only war. Imperium of Man, once strong and proud, now is slowly crumbling, whole regions of space are lost to the horrors that lurk in the darkness of the void. Sector Deus is just one of the thousands of Imperial provinces that form the front line in the war to defend Humanity itself. Corruption from within and aggression from without threaten it. But the Emperor sends us hope. High Lords of Terra commissioned a Chapter of Adeptus Astartes, finest warriors Humanity has ever seen, to defend this region of space. They are the last line of defence that hold Age of Ruin at bay. They are the Ghosts of Retribution and this is their tale.+Briefing+Chapter Chronicles and starting point for the novice initiates:http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_Quest_WikiDatalogs from the previous thread:>>1772600Battle voxcaster frequency, all allies are welcome to join:https://client02.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.net+Aiming well always is better than swinging hard.+
>>1817746To recap from last thread.1. What does Alderon Belladon think about the soothsayer's words? Does the 'warriors with white shields' mean anything to him? Organisations related to a white shield?2. Nearby SoBs thoughts on what we've gotten out of the witch so far. Her thoughts on Ursus now.3. Defer to Garant regarding the weakened witch. Ask some gentle questions but don't push her.4. Get Laxenos in here with us to help us figure out what this psychic presence inside her is.
>>1817758>3. Defer to Garant regarding the weakened witch. Ask some gentle questions but don't push her.To clarify, be gentle and try and don't press her any more but don't just leave the room and leave her alone. So CM & Laxenos (and Garant? He's a psyker) can figure out this presence.

+Operation Dustmite: Exploration of Outpost "H" on Sygma-477+Rolls:Trap Detection: 48Climbing: 50Secret: 75Awareness: 13+++Geron, accompanied by a squad of scouts and other brothers, approaches the restricted sector D-44 with caution. They can feel and see the visible disturbance of the veil between our world and the Immaterium, emanating from the abandoned base. Librarian Vortigan suddenly stops the squad.>This is strange. The disturbance seems to be real, but it's weaker than it would appear when examining it from the distance. It's as if it is part illusion. We shouldn't relax, but it's safe to proceed into the base, with this level of warp exposure it would take us a century to feel the effects.Group proceeds into the base, luckily Geron notices that entrances are booby trapped. While the squad is unable to safely disable the booby traps, they manage to find a way around and climb over the partially destroyed western wall of the compound. The base is almost completely destroyed, possibly partially by the events that took place here all those years ago, but most likely also because of the shelling by the Imperial Navy after the incident. Your men scour the base, but it doesn't seem to hold anything of value. Geron is almost ready to call the search off, when Omniscio notices something. Under the rubble your men find a half-buried body of a Space Marine. His left arm is missing and his armour is badly damaged, however you can still recognise that it is the same kind of unmarked armour as that of the other dead marines in the downed Thunderhawk. Vortigan's eyes widen:>Geron, I think I can feel something... Yes, yes. I was right - he's alive in there. Most likely in coma. Could he be in suspended animation? Shall we try to get him out?a) Yes, we must help a fellow space marine.b) Yes, but let's not rush this and get some help first.c) No, maybe he should stay buried here, who knows why he ended up like this - also it's very likely that he attacked this outpost.d) No, but let's inform Imperial Navy and Inquisition.
>>1817838>b) Yes, but let's not rush this and get some help first.Secure the area and bring in a lighter. Leave him in suspended animation and make sure he's put into a secure, isolated chamber on the ship where he can be examined by Klementhos.Thoughts?
>>1817838>a) Yes, we must help a fellow space marine.HOWEVER a check from our resident librarian comes first. And treat him as hostile until proven otherwise.
>>1817838>>1817844forgot name,aslo put in stasis field if we have one
>>1817838>>1817841I second this
>>1817758What does Alderon Belladon think about the soothsayer's words?>White shields, you say? Well, I think I heard there is some sort of Regiment or organisation that have white or silver or something shields on Cadia. I doubt whether that's what you are asking for though, sorry, I have no idea - I've never been good with prophecies.SoBs thoughts on what we've gotten out of the witch so far. >It is clear that something very wrong is going on in Tachion Primaris. I will let my sisters know about this, we have to seriously rethink our position on the question of how to deal with your proposal. While we have our differences, Astarte, rest assured, they pale in front of something like an unsanctioned coven of drug-addicted witches. Obviously, we must be sure that Sector Governor wasn't framed and is aware of this...Defer to Garant regarding the weakened witch. >I don't want her to expire, she might still be useful. I would like to put her in a well guarded cell on Nobis, however there's a chance that Sector Governor might have his spies or sympathisers among Inquisitors. However she cannot remain here either, in case if we would need to use her in legal proceedings - it could and it will be argued that you kept the prisoner on Mormark and tortured her until she told you what you wanted to hear. I suggest placing her in one of my safehouses until further notice.Get Laxenos in here with us to help us figure out what this psychic presence inside her is.>Milord, I observed her for the past 12 hours and her readings indicate a possibly developed low level latent psychic ability. This could be just an after effect of using spook for an extended period of time, but if you wish me to, I could have a more in-depth analysis of her. It will take me a couple of weeks and then I might be able to tell you more. Though exposing myself to her might be dangerous if this is something more sinister. Let me know if you wish me to proceed (roll 2d100 if yes).
>>1817947>>1817841>>1817844Option B it is. Make a quick roll for Lighter operation in warp anomaly area (below 85) and another secret roll.
>>1817950>they pale in front of something like an unsanctioned coven of drug-addicted witches. Obviously, we must be sure that Sector Governor wasn't framed and is aware of this..."I'm glad you think so Sister." [Tactical smile] "We must take care not to let Ursus know of our intent until all is ready though. We tread a dangerous path. All of us now.">I suggest placing her in one of my safehouses until further notice."With respect, Lord Inquisitor, would the word of yourself and the Emperor's own Sororitas not suffice? It is no secret that the Order of Bloody Tears are no friends of my chapter. If they agree with us, I doubt anyone would question the validity of the claim.">Though exposing myself to her might be dangerous if this is something more sinister. Let me know if you wish me to proceed (roll 2d100 if yes)."Do it. Have care brother."Support Laxenos and be ready to assist his mind against any attacks.Good responses?
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>1817959rolling for lighter operation
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>1817959sekkrit roll. dont tell anyone
>>1817950ask Garant if he has someone who can investigate her mind, preferably while in his captivity. her prolonged stay in our realm is ... problematic.
>>1817992>>1817985The recovery operation is a success. Despite minor turbulence, lighter managed to safely approach the ruins and your Apothecaries carefully removed catatonic marine from the rubble. As you were digging him out, you discovered something else - an alien looking artifact, strangely glowing elipsoid, that was buried under the debris beside the Space Marine. Vortigan claims, that it seems to emanate warp energy, but nobody has touched it yet. What do you want to do with it?>>1817999>Possibly. None of my own minions are capable of something like that, but I might call in a few old favours.
>>1818002>an alien looking artifact, strangely glowing elipsoid, that was buried under the debris beside the Space Marine.Lock it in stasis. Consult Garant with it. Have Seran give it a look and consult records to see what it could be.Have Klementhos examine the catatonic marine.
>>1818002>>1818005actually i am unsure whether to even touch it. Given the high security i would say we let it where it is, and get answers out of the marine.Keep in mind this thing might have influenced (kept alive?) our prisoner.
>>1818016Okay. Unless there's some way to carefully insert it into a stasis canister without touching it.

Rolled 46 (1d100)>>1818026Leave the xenos device. Take pictures of it instead and research them. Make a note of the object's location.Rolling for Seran & Alderon to research the pictures of the device.
>>1818026against it. dont touchjust make some pretty pictures
>>1818033>>1818034Seran is not too happy with his findings:>The artifact is clearly a device of xeno origin. The pictures you've taken, combined with the readings and Vortigan's observations, allows us to speculate that this device actually is the origin of the illusionary warp instability which we've seen.
>>1818052"Okay, thank you Seran. We'll need some answers from the marine...."How is Klementhos coming with the marine?
>>1818060Klementhos:>Subject has been in suspended animation for decades. Multiple serious bodily injuries, multiple causes, but it seems that bombardment was the thing that finally did him in. No clear marks that would help me to discern his chapter of origin, I ran a quick scan of his internal organs and possible mutations, nothing out of the ordinary. Do you want me to wake him up? It will take a few hours.
>>1818079"Do it brother. Make sure he is in an isolated ward and under heavy guard. Be careful."
>>1818079have a libby check his soul first.and proceed with utmost caution, treat him as an enemy
>>1818095>>1818096Klementhos nods and proceeds to follow your orders. The man is soon awoken in the Apothecarion of Aspera Dominus. He is at first very dizzy and confused, but even for a Space Marine that is understandable. He is not restrained, but there are a few armed brothers with you in the room and he's a cripple - his left arm is missing. After a while, you can talk to him. He looks at you and talks in a slow, calm, deep voice:>Thank you, brother. I have no idea who I am or where or when I am. I think my name might be Astelion, but I am not sure. Please forgive me. Who are you and how can I repay you for saving me?
>>1818161"For now I am just your brother. What is the last thing you *can* remember my friend?"
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>1818165Rolling

>>1818165>>1818170>I remember... Not much. Everything is fragmented somehow. I know that we had a mission. Me and my squad... Where are they? Have you seen any other marines, such as myself, where you found me? We were on a Thunderhawk, going towards the planet. It's complicated. I think I recall fire after that. It's all blurry. Wait! Yes, now I remember. We were supposed to meet our friend, Inquisitor. Damn, can't remember his name. Our mission, it was secret. We were not allowed to... Well, I guess I am still not allowed to, even if I would remember.>>1818176>>1818096Librarians confirm that he is suprisingly doesn't seem to be tainted or affected by his long stay in the warp anomaly. Possibly suspended animation somehow helped with that, but on the other hand anomaly is quite weak. They are polite and don't mindscan him (unless you want them to), but he seems to be still recovering from the coma.
>>1818205Give him time to recover.Meanwhile revisit Cagirates. How is he doing? Trianon was supposed to be helping him regain his memories.
>>1818205give him rest and watch himalso tell him the truth regarding the circumstances we found him

I am still feeling a bit strange after all that's happened, but I hope that we will be able to do something about the Governor. Whatever you decide, I hope to be part of that plan.+++Meanwhile marine that introduced himself as Astelion is getting physically stronger and is rapidly recovering with every passing day.>Unfortunately my memory is still foggy, but I believe I can recall my Chapter. I was known as Brother Sergeant Astelion of the Minotaurs, 3rd Company. I will need to return to my Chapter soon, however because of the strange circumstances under which you discovered me, I would prefer to do so discreetly. I will make sure that you are rewarded for recovering me and that my Chapter remembers this.+++The witch seems to be under a strange kind of psychic influence. While it is hard to tell, it seems as if there's a spot on her soul, beginnings of a portal that could be used to channel energy. You can discover up to two important things. Due Laxenos helping you, you get +20, but you need to roll you Lore (Warp) or /SECRET/ Lore (your choice).

I'll try and make arrangements."Send a message to the Minotaurs, if they're missing one Brother Sergeant Astelion from their 3rd Company.Rolling Secret Lore

>>1840665Unfortunately you have not met Minotaurs and have very little idea where or how to contact them, unless you would go through central channels, which could take years and would most likely require explaining how brother Astelion was found, going directly against his request for discretion. Astelion instead suggest to send a soulword to one of the Minotaur listening stations in Morrux Sector, he even is able to explain to Nerial Derang aproximate warp call sign that should be used to contact them. However this message might take a long time to travel and even then, listening post might have been abandoned since Astelion last visited it.>>1840671Astelion seems delighted at this proposal.>This would be ideal. If you would do this, I would make sure your Chapter is rewarded greatly for returning me to the Chapter. I am afraid we might need to travel as far as Morrux, but Minotaurs would be in your debt for this!Also please roll d100.+++Cagirates nods:>Yes, I believe that Lord Ursus was quite distant from our... wives. Occasional polite conversations, that's all. Deidara... Well, she would often invite them for the tea parties or whatever high born ladies do with their free time. She seldom appears in public herself, I personally have seen her mere dozen or so times in all the years of service, but she kept a tight circle of friends and socialites that would keep her company.

>>1840681>>1840686>I cannot tell you what the mission was, but you are my saviours, so I'll tell you what I can. The device is of xeno origin, it was retrieved during one of our operations, which is unfortunately also classified. Among it's few different uses, which I am genuinely not familiar with (our Librarian would have known better) is a possibility to distort reality, weakening the warp and creating localised, but mostly safe anomaly. As far as I am aware it was also enhanced with technology creating illusion of appearing to be a lot more dangerous than it truly is. That device served both as a deterrent and a support tool for Librarians or psykers drawing power from the Immaterium in the area. It is safe to use as far as I am aware, our Chapter had more than one of them. I understand why you have not retrieved it, but if you could retrieve it and return it to the Minotaurs together with me, I would do my best to convince my superior that Ghosts are worthy to be our allies in the eternal struggle. Also, as I am not familiar with your Chapter, would you mind telling more about yourselves?>Sure, we are... [tell him everything that other Space Marine allies, such as Imperial Fists, would know - homeworld, strength, primary threats, greatest feats, etc]>We are...

They are one of the few things that can trigger Space Wolves into action once more.

>>1840889>>Ask for their help diplomatically.always nice and friendly(are they on the list of ppl to talk to regarding coup?)>Ordo Astartes I dont think we should talk to them WITHOUT any facts at all.I am currently more interested in the amulet. As for the Minotaur, tell him his body is far from okay after that long time and he really should rest before undertakin a journey. (to buy us some time)
>>1840889>>Ordo Astartes is a very small organisation and as far as I am aware none of them are currently operating within Sector Deus. I don't think you want to attract their attention. They are one of the few powers in the Imperium that can decide to destroy Space Marine Chapters and have the influence to back up their decisions. They are one of the few things that can trigger Space Wolves into action once more. I can inquire about this Space Marine and the Minotaurs on your behalf, but tell me that you really want me to do this. I can also look into this personally, but it will detract me from preparing for the coup. It is your choice.whoa there let's just involve the inquisition with investigating the artifact. we can always kill Astelion ourselves if it turns out he's a traitor. So...Ordo Xenos seems most likely.
