Welcome to the beginning of Grimdark Quest, a grounded and immersive quest taking place in the grim darkness of the 41st millennium. >What makes it different than the other Warhammer quests on the board? Well unlike Penal Regiment or Renegade Regiment, this will be a more traditional Main Character focused quest, with experimenting with weaving freeform elements into the narrative later.>So what now? Well, the goal of the quest is to offer a look into 40k that *you* want to see. This means placing your vote on the poll here for where you want our character to start their career and life; https://www.strawpoll.me/15943616Keep in mind that just because the MC starts as a lowly Guardsman Private, Ganger Mook, craven Acolyte, or middling Datasmith, doesn't mean the narrative can't take them to the heights of the Inquisition or the depths of Chaos and anywhere in between. The result of the vote simple determines the kind of MC we create and their environment at start.Poll is open now and will close at 11:00 AM Saturday, EST. Join us discord as well, and be part of the conversation: https://discord.gg/FnZykc
>>2669432>straw poll for votes>Killing off potential (You)'s
Vote for datasmith quest you nerds!
>>2669432>chaos space marine on the leadit's like you guys love shit and always want more of it
>>2669464here, have one
>>2669464I care not for (You)'s, only the will of the people. I can farm replies once the faction is decided and we roll up the planet and faction and build the MC>>2669493It's a tie between Chaos and Hive Ganger, don't worry.
>no option for Freeboota for space pirate adventures>No option for Adeptus ArbiteWell i voted for Renegade Guard anyways
>no Arbitrator Quest option>not letting us be The LawAh well, Datasmith it is.
>>2669564>>2669524I've made a terrible mistake.[Spoiler]No reason a humble PDF trooper, reformed Ganger, or Bounty Hunter can't jump through immense hoops to become an Arbitrator
chaos space marine still winning.you wanna bet this horny teenagers fuckwits will want to be slaneesh too?
>>2669783Discord is thinking either TS,IG,or NL CSM
>>2669809>discussion about a choice in the thread>happening in the DiscordAnd THIS kind of faggotry is why Discords for quests are bad. As a form of containment for shitposting, great, go nuts. But y'all assholes are having a discussion that belongs in the fucking thread, off-site.
>>2669809>discord>Thousand Songs, whatever IG is or Night LordsScrew that if we are doing CSM then as the first person to bring it up in the thread I vote we do a Red Corsairs edgy raider quest
>>2669935I mean the vote is on strawpoll and we're not deciding what type of csm yet so its just speculation
>>2669935It's pretty quiet. Mostly it was just discussion on what kind of thread it was going to be, free form or more of a traditional quest and whittling down the potential candidates.I mostly plan on using the discord to let people know when a new thread is up and out of context conversation. And shitposting.There's no harm in joining.>>2669941Well, once a winner is declared I plan on making a good ole /tg/ Roll Thread, where we use the dice and 1d4chan charts to roll up our planet, regiment, chapter, gang, whatever. Of course player and QM fiat are going to be king, so if we get Ultra Successors or Slaaneshi warband, or death world and there's a hard outcry we can reroll or simply choose our own path. But in my experience, rolling typically ends up in some pretty fun results
>>2669969Still would rather we voted rather than roll
>>2669994Think of the rolls as prompts and less hard fast rules. I always try to see if a good idea can be made from the rolls given, but sometimes you have to go off script, so to speak
>>2670071Well unless the rolls go off the wall crazy (I want to keep all rolls vetoes are for wimps) I am gonna vote that we play a biker.
>>2669432>with experimenting with weaving freeform elements into the narrative later.I don't know why you took the time to try and differentiate yourself from those other two quests and then said this.
>>2669432Well, bounty hunter sounded fresh for 40k. Of course, I'd sooner have voted for ganger over faggot CSM so I'm going to have to say your choice to use strawpoll was shit.>>2669935100% agreed, discord is nothing but some bullshit. All that comes of it is backroom deals and faggotry, and excludes people who don't want to deal with the faggotry from the discussion.
>>2670082Trying to accommodate people that weren't interested in the Lore-lite and less atmospheric tone of those threads but were even less so interested in single focus MC quests. If I can't make it work, I can't make it work, but I think its worth thinking about.>>2670094Well it's a tie between Ganger and CSM, so I don't think you're fair to be upset. The poll stops tomorrow, so it's anybodies game. Except Space Marine. Probably.As for Discord, it keeps the thread clear of out of context discussion, and lets me keep people up to date with threads, as well as recieving comments, criticism, and critique without derailing the thread
OP the invite expired. You gonna post a new one soon?
>>2670174>Well it's a tie between Ganger and CSM, so I don't think you're fair to be upset.I say it's shit because I can't change my vote to help insure something that I want to participate in wins.
>>2670221Here you go>>2670235I'll just count Hive Scum as +1, how is that?
>>2670358>Here you goHuh?
>>2670358Allowing that would set a poor precedent with 80+ people having voted.
>>2670391Dropped my link https://discord.gg/CR8mQUj>>2670401I think there may be voting shenanigans on. Only one person has joined the discord since the thread has been up, over a period of time disproportionate to the speed at which votes went out. But we'll see
>>2670425not everyone, likes talking on discord.
>>2670425You set it to Choose all that apply so people voted for multiple options
>>2669432>strawpoll Chargen>discord cancerthis quest is destined to die a horrible death.
>>2670675Well it seems Hive Gangs have a solid lead, so it looks like it sorted out>>2670785To be completely fair, only the faction is Straw poll, the rest will be in thread. And the idea started on discord, so it seemed fair to have a discord for it. And it's a good communication tool and keeps OOC conversation out of the quest
>>2670852cool, im eager
>>2670425>I think there may be voting shenanigans on. Only one person has joined the discord since the thread has been upPlenty of us don't want anything to do with discord.>>2670852>And the idea started on discordWell then.
Well, the results are in, and Hive Ganger won the day!
>>2672174When do we start?
>>2672174>>>2672329nowyou are jhon esteban. hive ganger on the world of tomorrow. your ganger is the gentlemen of helping hands, your on the second to last region of your hive. beneath your stomping grounds are mutants and xenos( if rumors are true), and worse! dun dun dun!!!your gang has democratically elected leadership , consisting of a council of 5 master gentlemen. they then elect among themselves a head gentleman, usually the one with the most fabulous mustache. you are in the running for a council position, but are worried about your chances due to a recent mustache accident.
>>2672770>your gangershould be your gang. and a democratic gang.....this is odd but im going to assume its serious
>>2672770You're not the QM dude
>>2672822ssshh, thats exactly what a mutant would say. you mutant
>>2672915dont fall for there mutant lies brother.
>>2672964victoria et mortus brother, but that picture reeks of heresy
All right hive scum and gang bangers, every crew has a turf, and it's time to decide what ours is. Using the Dark Heresy planet generator (https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Planet_generator) we're going to roll up our world. Once we've rolled for our planet, we can tweak details and fluff it out. After that, we're going to co-opt the Hua Yuan Gang Generator (https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Hua_Yuan#Gang_Creation_Table) to do the same for our gang.For starters, roll me a 1d100, and we'll decide what kind of world our planet is.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>2673716
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>2673716
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>2673716
>>2673751So Developing World...>>2673759And a Death World...We have some options, either/or, maybe a combination? Who knows, we can fluff that out at the end. Let's move on. Roll me 3d10+15 for average technology level of our world
Rolled 2 + 15 (1d10 + 15)>>2673961I mean gangers make more sense on a developed world, suppose it doesn't mean it can't be all fucked up and apocalyptic though.
Rolled 3, 3, 1 + 15 = 22 (3d10 + 15)>>2673961
ok so how do you want us to roll for this stuff?
>>2673976So the average is industrial. I'm going to exercise some QM fiat and say that this the lowest level of technology, and most common to the lower levels of society, but the world has low to mid Imperial technology where it matters. Our Gangsters will mostly likely be more familiar with revolvers than las-guns, by and large.Roll me a 1d100 for the size of our star. This is going to dictate how alone we are in the galaxy, and how notable we are in the Imperium.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>2673986
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>2673986
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>2673986
>>2673985Options field. Type "dice+(x)d(y)+(z)" x being the number of dice thrown, y the face of die, and z being the modifier if any are needed. It's in the 4chan FAQ>>2673990This would be a moderate star, about the size of Terra's star, perhaps slightly bigger. We'd be of middling importance, not a world of particular note or inconsequence. We mostly likely have a handful of neighbors and deal with a few of them.>>2673991This would be a small sun. We'd be a back water world with little Imperial support and outside contact. We would have few neighbors, if any at all.>>2673997This is a large star, making us more notable as a system with a more robust populace and economy. We'd have a good number of neighboring populated worlds, and Imperial trade and travel would make contact and communication standard and vital.Roll a 1d4 for our Segmentum. This will allow us to better gauge who we will have contact with, friend or foe
Rolled 1 (1d4)>>2674046
Rolled 1 (1d4)>>2674046Which star are we?
>>2674046>Options fieldNo, are you averaging? Do you just want one roll? When you want multiple do you want everyone to roll one, one person to roll them all, or everyone to roll them all at one time?
>>2674062>>2674061>>2674082That's a surprise.
>>2674061>>2674062Segmentum Obscurus, spooky. Roll me a 2d10 to establish Administratum presence on the planet. >>2674062Once we're done rolling, I display the collected results in a summary post. From there we fluff out the planet and gang, as well as other necessary bits, using our rolls as guidelines or writing prompts. So don't worry about that just yet.>>2674074Assume you're the only one rolling. So if multiple dice are asked for. Roll them all. I'll take the first three results into a summary post for us to deliberate and fluff with at the end. Or I'll simply use QM fiat like I did for the tech level to make something more amicable to the running of the quest. Stone Age Raiders isn't exactly who won the poll, but having areas of the planet be heavily industrial is still within the limits of Hive World. Give or take some lasers.>>2674082Obscurus again. Guess it was meant to be. Now the 2d10, if you please
Rolled 5, 3 = 8 (2d10)>>2674111
Rolled 6, 6 = 12 (2d10)>>2674111
Rolled 10, 8 = 18 (2d10)>>2674111Ok then.
>>2674115Slight. Specific duties; not involved in wider planetary affairs.>>2674126Small. Involved, but quietly and unobtrusively.>>2674127Notable. A powerful force in its own area of expertise.Big range there. Either not there at all, or hyper focused. Hows about 3d10 minus 5 for Arbites presence
Rolled 8, 5, 5 = 18 (3d10)>>2674167
Rolled 10, 7, 4 - 5 = 16 (3d10 - 5)>>2674167
>>2674207Well taking five from that result, that gives us 13. Moderate. Has offices and planetary duties, and are widely known.And >>2674292 as Notable. Either way, the Arbites have a firm presence, and our climb to riches and respect isn't going to go unchallenged by the Law.How's about Telepathica presence? This is really going to say how well the world communicates with places beyond the system. 3d10-5 once more please
Rolled 6, 5, 8 + 5 = 24 (3d10 + 5)>>2674332
Rolled 9, 6, 9 - 5 = 19 (3d10 - 5)>>2674332
Oh wow, suprising rolls here, but maybe not considering we're in Obscurus>>2674425Moderate.>>2674439Major. A powerful and influential force throughout the planet.Either because of our place in the galaxy, or something of importance on the planet, the Astra Telepathica has a respectable presence on the planet. Perhaps the planet is a breeding ground for psykers, or is in proximity to a world that is.Give me a 1d10-2 for Astronomica presence
Rolled 6 + 2 (1d10 + 2)>>2674480
>>2674480How am I screwing up the dice? dice+1d10-2 is what I put in options
Rolled 8 - 2 (1d10 - 2)>>2674480
>>2674536You need to do "dice+1d10+-2"
>>2674554>>2674526Alright. In Obscurus, with the high presence of Imperium Psykers, there's bound to be an Inquisitorial eye upon the planet.Roll me a 3d10-5 to see just how invested in the world the Inquisition is.
Rolled 1, 4, 4 - 5 = 4 (3d10 - 5)>>2674626
Rolled 9, 2, 1 - 5 = 7 (3d10 - 5)>>2674626
>>2674659>>2674663Thankfully, the Inquisition seems to have more pressing matters than our rock. Either the Arbites are able to keep things well enough in line or the Inquisition simply has viewed what may have been a precarious situation as not a problem.What about the Mechanicus? Developing many parts of the Death World may be, but this *is* a Hive Ganger quest. Let's see just how prevalent the Cog Boys areRoll me a 2d10-3
Rolled 1, 9 + 3 = 13 (2d10 + 3)>>2674718
Rolled 10, 4 - 3 = 11 (2d10 - 3)>>2674718
>>2674756>>2674775Moderate. Enough to keep the hives alive, the PDF operational, and the ships running. Everyone knows about the Adeptus Mechanicus, even if they don't see the benefits of their work.Finally, another 3d10-5 for Ministorum strength.
Rolled 7, 2, 1 - 5 = 5 (3d10 - 5)>>2674994
Rolled 5, 5, 4 - 5 = 9 (3d10 - 5)>>2674997
Rolled 2, 7, 3 - 5 = 7 (3d10 - 5)>>2674994
>>2675014>>2674997>>2675084Hmmm, Slight to Small, but I'm going to bump that up to Small to Moderate (Considering strong Telepathica presence and us being in Obscurus). The Faith is present, but manifests itself strangely outside the purview of the Ministorum.With various organizations out of the way, let's talk about how big the planet is. Give me 1d100+25
Rolled 11 + 25 (1d100 + 25)>>2675115
>>2675115Sorry QM, it's sleepy time for me. Shame I won't be catching the rest of the rolls, work and all tomorrow.
>>2675201Gonna pack it in as well, pick it up in the next six or so hours
Rolled 80 + 25 (1d100 + 25)>>2675115>>2675215
>>2675125This would give us a Small planet, which wouldn't really give a lot of room for a Hive...>>2675235This gives us a MASSIVE planet, several times larger than Holy Terra. Lets go with this one.Roll me a 1d100+25 for seasonal variation. This will dictate how brutal our temperatures are, and being a Death World, we might want to go towards the extremes
Rolled 59 + 25 (1d100 + 25)>>2676108
>>2676129A Large Axial Tilt means a sizable difference between seasons, 40 degrees of difference seasonally, in the negative and positive. Brutal winters and searing summers, spring and autumn give a reprieve from the seasonal extremes.Roll me a 1d100+50 for length of day and night
Rolled 28 + 50 (1d100 + 50)>>2676131
>>2676135Alright, longer than average. 7d10 to determine number of Terran hours in the cycle
Rolled 5, 3, 5, 4, 7, 10, 9 = 43 (7d10)>>2676145
Rolled 10, 10, 10, 8, 1, 8, 10 = 57 (7d10)>>2676145
>>2676166>>2676151We can easily have that as a range due to our strange axial tilt and orbit. Long days and long nights, must be rough with the harsh weather.Roll me a 1d100+50 to see how many satellites we have.
Rolled 53 + 50 (1d100 + 50)>>2676182
>>2676183Alright, that puts us in the "Lots" bracket. Roll me a 4d10 for the exact amount
Rolled 8, 3, 3, 8 = 22 (4d10)>>2676191
>>2676193>>267619122 satellites? Do we roll for each one of those? Do some of them have atmosphere or ressources?
>>2676193>>2676217I don't think I'm going to waste time rolling for each of these. It may be more judicious to simply fluff them out, or at least a few. If there's a heavy presence of Arbites, Telepathica, and Mechanicus here, they may not even be stationed on the planet, instead opting to occupy a single moon, or have a moon to themselves. We may have distant relations with the Ministorum not because of the absence of the faith on world, but because one of the satellites is a shrine world, or cemetary world. Our gangers will interact with the satellites infrequently, if at all, especially in the beginning. I'm not going to bother rolling for Gravity or Length of Year for similar reasons. Its largely erroneous and won't affect the plot, or if it does will only needlessly complicate things.On that note, let's see how necessary those Hives are by rolling for atmosphere by rolling 1d100+10
Rolled 37 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>2676229OOO! we could be a large cemetary wolrd, where each branch of the imperium uses one of the moons as a sacred burial moon.
Rolled 100 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>2676229
>>2676295damn son, slow down! a roll like that and the damn sky will be MADE of corpses!
>>2676276Well that's a cool idea to keep in mind once we start fluffing. And your roll is Normal Breathable air.>>2676295And this has an atmosphere that actively hates living things.Wow. Roll me a 1d100 for the Hydrosphere
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>2676338literal death world, death air, death moons, death people.
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>2676338By the saints!
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>2676338
>>2676342Average. A world with an Average hydrosphere gets frequent rainfall, and has>>2676345>>2676348A Moist world has substantial oceans, a lot of rainfall and permanently sodden ground.Maybe due to our axial shift, we get more wet due to glacial melt in the face of the summer, making a damp autumn and icy winter. Perhaps the spring is rather arid in some places to reflect that.Roll a 1d100 to get the mean global temperature
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>2676350
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>2676350
>>2676360>>2676356Average. Despite being a Hive/Death world, at least the weather is nice.Now for the fun part. Give me a 1d100+25
Rolled 69 + 25 (1d100 + 25)>>2676370
>>2676380Cool! Roll 5d100 to see our five most common biomes.
Rolled 3, 45, 74, 90, 22 = 234 (5d100)>>2676387
Rolled 25, 4, 75, 51, 18 = 173 (5d100)>>2676387
Rolled 66, 3, 59, 64, 76 = 268 (5d100)>>2676387i wanna be a spesh merin
>>2676389Grasslands, Active Volcanoes, Swamps, Deserts, Hills>>2676392Hills, Grassland, Swamps, Flat Rock, Broken Forest>>2676395Barren, Grasslands, Columns, Moors, Caves. Unfortunately Hive Ganger won the poll, so we're going to be playing a normal human at start. Well we certainly got fitting results. Hills and Grasslands are definitely in, and funnily enough those together make moors and fens. Swamps are definitely in as well.Active Volcanoes, Deserts, flat rock, barrens and columns can certainly be together. The planet has certainly a respectable amount of geographic diversity. Roll me a 1d100+40 for our population
Rolled 93 + 40 (1d100 + 40)>>2676443
Rolled 18 + 40 (1d100 + 40)>>2676443
>>2676450Oh man. That's the maximum amount. We have 3d10 billion people on the planet. Perhaps spread out amongst the satellites, or stuffed into hives.On another note; This place is insane. Pleasant English country side and ÜBERMURDERSTAN in the same areas.I have to imagine that the places with Volcanoes and barren rock are safer due to there simply being no killy beasts. The volcanoes and swamps may lend to the deadly atmosphere
Rolled 8, 7, 7 = 22 (3d10)>>2676466
Rolled 10, 1, 7 = 18 (3d10)>>2676466
>>2676469*Twenty-two* billion people. Now this is a massive planet, several times Terra, with as many dozen satellites. So this may not be as intimidating a number as it may sound, but also considering the planet being a death world, population density may be very high indeed in some places, or collected into a massive Mega City.Now to talk about planetary society. The Emperor cares little about how we rule each other, so let's roll for it instead; 1d100, if you please.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>2676491
Rolled 44 (1d100)>>2676491
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>2676491
>>2676516Elected Dictator?>>2676519Elected Monarch?>>2676566Democracy? A little strange, but I can't see why these can't go together or be used in different regions of the planet. Now let's talk about the planet defenses. If you look at the Planet Generation chart, the defenses part is a bit, uh, dense. However. We can cut that down a bit and just roll for overal force size, and overall force quality, and distribute that amongst enforcers, PDF, local militia, planetary navy, and other such defenses.So roll me a 3d10 for force size
Rolled 3, 7, 4 = 14 (3d10)>>2676621
Rolled 10, 2, 1 = 13 (3d10)>>2676621
Rolled 8, 5, 3 = 16 (3d10)>>2676621
>>2676635>>2676678>>2676744So Large, boarding on huge. A sizable force indeed. Roll 2d10 for quality.
Rolled 1, 5 = 6 (2d10)>>2676766
Rolled 4, 7 = 11 (2d10)>>2676766
Rolled 9, 9 = 18 (2d10)>>2676766
>>2676776>>2676778Middling. No better and no worse than your average Imperial PDF or planet side army in terms of training, equipment, and discipline. With those numbers, the planet is going to be secure for some time. Roll a 1d100 to determine if the world provides Regiments
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>2676794
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>2676794
>>2676797That's an affirmative. We tithe Guard to the the greater Imperium. Rolling up a Regiment often helps define the culture of the world they come from a little more, which is going to help us define our planet and ultimately, gang and main character.But before we do that, let me compile the summary post for the world.

>>2676807That's a Death World alright. Now to our peerless defenders.>>2676819Two more tables, then the fun fluffy bit. Then we make our hardened hive scum. Trust me, it will be worth the wait.In the time being, how's about tossing a 2d100 for conscription methods
Rolled 1, 1 = 2 (2d100)>>2676845alrite
>>2676851Same result. Mind rerolling?
Rolled 28, 20 = 48 (2d100)>>2676845
Rolled 60, 30 = 90 (2d100)>>2676860>>2676868Fuddled that, again
Rolled 11, 77 = 88 (2d100)>>2676845
Some interesting results. >>2676851The ones indicate a wholly male regiment.>>267687328 indicates recruitment from a Warrior Caste, and 20 indicates all female.>>267687460 indicates Spacer, so most likely satellite dwellers, and 30 indicates nobility.Again, these are rolls with a lot of interesting synergy, and I see no reason not to use them in conjunction, but we'll see about that come fluffing time. Perhaps two different major Regiments from different satellites or satellite clusters, one male and one female. Again, we'll see.Since both Casteborn and Nobility were rolled, I'll skip recruitment nature. For kicks and giggles, let's roll homeworld terrain. If they match a terrain on the world they can be sourced from that area, and if not that can perhaps be the terrain of the satellite of origin. For that, give me a 1d100
>>2676906Interestingly, 77 is gangers. However, personally I think that having the only people able to regularly able to leave the shithole planet, even for war, be the elite and well to do fits nicely in a narrative about crime and suffering.
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>2676919

>>2677816Fluff is always fun
I'm off work and everyone bolts, what a sad state of affairs
>>2677865If they're all void-born, maybe they specialize in boarding actions and such. Their lasgun pattern could be a shotgun in that case.
>>2678151Well there is talk of two different types of regiments, I'm thinking one planetary/hive nobility at least. Something like that from one of the satellites would be interesting. Say a dead moon partially made into a space station or something providing a void specialty regiment. Perhaps having heavy concentrations of a rare mineral necessitating a heavy investment into infrastructure.
how about having the specialized Las-Gun be Stormfront Lasgun (has bajonets), a Death Light (more power-hungry and slower, but delivering a stronger punch) or a Minerva-Aegis Las Carbine (has a faster attack rate)? The Minerva-Aegis Las Carbine is rare/expensive and would fit to a noble regiment.
So there's been a lot of rolls and crazy stuff for this planet, I think before we launch into the final stage of rolling up our gang and finally fleshing out the main character.I like the mortuary moons idea, several chambers of the Adeptus Terra could make the crypt moons final resting places of honour, or for souls lost fighting the horrors of the Segmentum, thus the shitloads of psykers, most probably dead of Daemon mind rape. I also think the two major regiment types could be the best way to go about it. The first is from the jungle moon, which could be a SoB cemetary and be attended by a sisterhood there. The women of that planet of the warrior caste, which could be nobility by way of supplying guards and vassals to the main planet monarchy, are conscripted into a SoB aligned regiment. Their specialized gear could be blessed flamer-lasguns, or las snipers. This explains the shock and awe, well disciplined nature, and fanaticism. The other can be a "penal" regiment from the main planet, where the War Boys of the nomadic outcasts are scooped up enmasse, and shipped out to battlefields. They can be just as fanatical, but weird about it, thinking that they will be resurrected in death by the Emperor. Traditional weapon can be Rage (video game) boomerang/Krull Glaive or explosive javelins. They can also take up the vast majority of the "industrial" technology niche, with cars and trucks and revolvers. The penal system can just kick people out of the hives, and let the nomads or planet take care of them. If they don't die to toxic fogs or whatever else is out there, the nomads can get them. And even if the nomads take them in, the crazy bastards are always waiting for the Administratum to pick them up, give them lasguns and chimera's, and send them to battle.As for the planet, there's definitely swaths of beautiful untracked land, maybe around the equatorial band. Maybe things can get a little more harsh towards the poles, or maybe the opposite, where volcanic ash makes for fertile land far enough away
>>2679673Can't say I care for those regiment ideas
>>2679673The uninhabitable equator could come from vulcanism there, which might be caused by tidal heating.See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidal_heating_of_IoThis might be caused by a nearby (non-radiating) stellar object, like a black or brown dwarf.
>>2679685What do you propose? >>2679694That's sounds pretty cool. The planet being segregated by a violent equator, with the land getting more and more pleasant as it reaches the poles. Although I'm sure there's tons of nasty creatures in the "nice" places.
>>2679705this was me>>2677852The second regiment I don't know really, "war boys" type regiment might not be too bad, but seems rather weak for something a hive world should put out. Though, I guess having crazy deadly flora/fauna might could make for some hardasses out in the wastes. Explosive tipped javelins and slug guns, war rigs and motorcycles. Hell, I've talked myself into digging it.
>>2679673I think we should have a single regiment, picking the best of the bits we just rolled for, for example, a Heavy Infantry regiment recruited from the noble and warrior castes of one the Desert moons (like maccabian jannisaries or tallarn desert raiders), specialising in ranged shock and awe tactics with their blessed hotshot lasguns, because they're nobles and warrior caste, who can be trusted with expensive toys. Fanatically loyal who fight to prove their homeworld is the best and that they are the best of their homeworld. Allied with the Adeptus Sororitas, who can appreciate fellow zealots when they see them, and have been known to have fought against Eldar particularly well in several of their previous campaigns.
Also, can we get a new link to the discord server, please?
>>2680151I disagree. Having an elite unit off world with strong ties to the larger Imperium and the mainland one be scrapped up savages is yet another dig on the poor and destitute of the world. Noble warriors on the lush jungle planet (ignoring that it's most likely dangerous in it's own right) are rewarded for the circumstance for their birth while nomads and criminals are punished for theirs, used as chattel and used up.Remember, the goal isn't to make a totally badass regiment, but create conditions on a world where crime can flourish. And that comes down to socio-economics. It also opens up narrative possibilities, since getting captured by Arbites isn't a death sentence, instead it means that we take a trip down Fury Road to find our way back. >>2680272https://discord.gg/zuzMjE>>2680316I don't understand, why the Discord hate? This wouldn't have come together without it.
>>2680436I think it makes more sense to have noble warriors coming from the hives proper, but the war boys thing I like too. The idea of Fury Road and Judge Dredd '95 mixed together sounds fun.Discord always ends up with some faggotry. Quests were getting along just fine before discord came about, and things would have been just fine without it.
>>2680485Both of these points are true, but debates become easier when you don't have the captcha verifications after every message
>>2680492A poor trade.
>>2680436I agree that we need there to be more crime. Should this crime be organized, mafiaesque, or should it be more chaotic?
>>2680624Big as the world is I don't think there can't be a little of everything.So, when are we going to do some more rolling?
>>2680624>>2680645I agree. The planet is absolutely massive. Days last twice as long as a Terran day, sometimes more. The diverse range of biomes is evidence of size.Think we can organize crime by areas of population. I'm thinking four equatorial Hives, flaking the active zones, not necessarily in them, antipodal to each other, as well as antipodal hives on the poles. One of the equatorial hives I feel should be destroyed, creating a post apocalyptic environment for mutants, abhumans, and beastmen to occupy, relatively safe from human interruption.There can be a seventh "hive" more akin to a Megacity, sprawling from a proper hive. My thoughts to this one is that it takes up a large majority of coastline to the ocean, again much like Mega-City One. This would be the major population center.The nomads would act as highway men, raiders, smugglers, traffickers, and cults. Those who have ships can fulfill piracy roles on the seas. Being industrial level at most, having steam ships or destroyers would be pretty cool.In the hives, I think there would be criminal mono-cultures, different gangs but similar structure. The Bloods and Crips are enemies, but are structured and operate similarly. The same with Cartels and mafias. I think the Megacity would have greater criminal diversity.I've also been thinking about Thrull as a planet name.>>2680645I want to fluff out the world a little more before rolling up the gang, and I want to find a good system to roll up a character on
>>2680769I wouldn't suggest getting too heavy on a system unless it's easily recognizable like ASOIF's own. Most people arent going to want to or spend time learning a new one imo
>>2681175Nah, just a rules lite Only War hack or something, using the stat system as a measure of the main characters skills and talents. I might crib upgrade paths Really, the mechanics of the quest will be as lite as any other, but evoke the feeling of playing a FFG 40k game without the fuss
I'm confused, will we be starting as a guardsman, or a hive ganger?
>>2681675We should've had the choice to be a Knight Scion. It might've been pretty cool.
>>2681675A Hive Ganger. I'm trying to get our exported regiments fluffed out a bit since their tactics and culture will often trickle down to the PDF and enforcers, who we'll more often than not be dealing with
Idea; we try to become an inquisitor's acolyte, then almost any career path is open to us from there, even if the career path is just a cover for being an inquisition agent. Before anyone says anything, I'm well aware that it will be no small task to go from Hive Ganger to Throne Agent.
>>2681878How long is that going to take?
>>2682133Not long at all. Considering 80% of this is going to be making shit up as I go along. And I remembered enough of character creation for a 40k rpg that we can roll straight into it once we're done.My only thing is that it seems that people aren't too interested in the whole fluffing bit, but I have enough here to flesh out the planet if need be. So if people would rather leave the fluffing wholly up to me, then all that's left is rolling up the gang
>>2682353Well, give us some examples of what you'd like help fluffing out.
>>2681899>I'm well aware that it will be no small task to go from Hive Ganger to Throne Agent.Literally Luck is all you need
>>2681899>>2683448I'd rather just go for being a crimelord.
So after some consideration, I've decided I'm just going to fluff out the world.>PLANET NAME: Thrull>CLASS TECH LEVEL: Industrial to Mid Imperial>SIZE OF STAR: Binary Star, Large and Small>SEGMENTUM: Obscurus>Sector: Reliqua>PLANETARY GOVERNOR: Grand Duke Obutis Schench>ADETPA PRESENCE: Adeptus Arbites (Notable); Adeptus Astra Telepathica (Significant) Adeptus Astronimica (Notable); Adeptus Mechanicus (Moderate); Administratum(Notable); Adeptus Ministorum (Moderate); Inquisition (Small)>SIZE: Massive>LENGTH OF DAY: 47 to 53 hours>SATELLITES: 22. Seven of which, Final Vigil, Eden's Rest, Quaestorum, Watch's End, Cantithal, Midden, and the Lantern, are naturally habitable and are used as cemetary worlds for the Adeptus Terra. The smallest moon, Hlias, is home to a Rogue Trader dynasty's family crypt.>GRAVITY: Normal >ATMOSPHERE: Normal, with occasional radiation storms and noxious miasma around swamped ideas.>HYDROSPHERE: Average. Planet has three major oceans; Alacritic, Medic, Barathic. >TERRAIN: Equator is extremely geologically active, with volcanic mountain ranges, plateaus, messas, igneous valleys, and massive cave systems. Landlocked areas around the equator are typically arid barrens and deserts. Large river deltas and brackish swamps create lush hills and moors away from the equator, with elevation decreasing and forests gaining in density towards the poles.>CLIMATE: Average, with largely humid and extremely hot summers and biting winters. The Autumn seasons have the most agreeable weather in most populated areas.>NATIVE FLORA AND FAUNA: The Fauna of Thrull are typically dangerous and hearty creatures. The vast majority of life forms are large predatory felines, arthropods, feathered reptilians, crocodilians, and avians. Most animals on Thrull are at least partly omnivorous and sizable. A great degree of flora on Thrull is grasses and field flowers, with titanic trees at the poles. Parasitic mosses and fungal lifeforms are also in abundance.Cont
>>2685631>COUNTRIES AND CONTINENTS: Thrull is divided into five major landmasses, separated by the oceans and equatorial volcanic ranges, although some consider there to be only three continents, while others assert six, counting a partly submerged landmass in the Medic Ocean. The population centers are six, formerly seven, major hives, Hive Infestum having suffering massive infrastructure failures and collapsing, forcing residents to evacuate and displace. Three, excluding the ruins of Infestum, are located nearly antipodal to each other near the equator, either below or above it. The remaining equatorial hives are Barathrum, Peruro, and Caminus. These hives are generally for resource requisition and manufacture, the industrial back bone of the planet. Two hives occupy the poles, Kaelus at the north, and Exult at the south. These are the palaces of high ranking individuals, planetary nobility and stationed Adeptus Terra officials. Dominating the southwestern coast of the northwestern hemisphere is Kanus City, a massive mega-city spilling from Hive Reliqua at the epicenter of the city. By far the largest populated area on the planet, Kanus City, referred to commonly as the Sprawl, is the cultural heart of Thrull. Born from necessity after the explosion of Hive Infestum centuries ago, the displaced hivers built up the area about Hive Reliqua, and an influx of semi nomadic exiles allowed the area to prosper and survive. Eventually the under and lower hive was flushed out to give higher status hivers greater room to live, and Kanus City was born. Centuries of booming trade and populace have made the city stretch across thousands upon thousands of kilometers, and soaring hundreds into the sky, even encroaching on the Medic Sea itself. Other smaller populations exist, but are typically semi nomadic or seasonal.>POPULATION: 22 Billion, approximately 15 billion live in Kanus City, and each other hive housing 1.3 billion, with the rest of the population lives as scattered nomads and raider clans.
I think that will do to for surface level fluff, unless anyone has anything to add, or anything that seriously is unsightly. Speak now or forever hold your peace.
I'd like some weird Xenos ruins scattered around the planet and some Mechanicus space mining activity in orbit. Can we have this?
>>2685675Penal colony on one of the moons, shipped from other places? Ogryns? Sea monsters? Creepy things in the caves?I don't quite get cemetery worlds really.
>>2685631Can we exchange some of the naturally habitable satellites used as cemetary worlds against agri worlds with occasional incursions of feral orcs or feudal worlds with higher than average numbers of mutants and psykers? I have the feeling that just having cemetary worlds might limit the opportunities for story telling. Some of the uninhabitable satellites might also be borderline habitable, e.g. barren wastelands; remains of a nuclear war. Maybe they were used as defence outposts before the system was conquered by the Imperium of Mankind.
Perhaps one or two space stations might also orbit the planet, they could act as the Arbites main base or used to account for the Inquisitions "small" presence there, like an inquisitorial research station.
>>2685707Mmmaaaaybe one or two of the moons have xenos archeological sites, but I'd like to keep Thrull relatively untamed. Mining operations on the other moons are definitely a thing.>>2685710Lunar penal colony on a planet that exports penals doesnt make a whole lot of sense. However I can concede that having penals be shipped to mining and agri moons would be good. I don't see any reason to have native Ogryns, but Thrull does have it's own mutant and abhuman populations. The seas of Thrull are chock full of giant crustaceans, merpanthers, fungal man'o'war, and other nasties. Thrull proper already has creepy things in caves. >>2685849As above. But I'd like to emphasize that the quest will start, and due to sheer size and the scope of the narrative, never leave the Sprawl. The Mortuary Moons of Thrull are window dressing, and will likely never come into play. I can see multiple moons having agri components, acting as a part of the judiciary system. The moons are minor, and the planet has much of what you want if not in content in theme. I want to avoid straight up Xenos. The Polar Hives and Kanus City have abnormal psyker output. And just because they're naturally habitable doesnt mean any of the other moons aren't at all>>2686035I don't see why a massive planet with 22 satellites would need space stations, but if they're there, no one knows about them.Also has anyone else noticed that the thread has stopped bumping? Has a mod killed this in the cradle?

>>2687756We seem like standup dudes.
>>2687756So, unions, community work. We've got tats for a special right? Maybe some bizarre hybrid of yakuza/russian mafia? With the tats, nothing visible while wearing a suit, but full body tats otherwise?Spitballing here, anyone else? Can we at least be selling drugs and stuff while being stand up members of the community? Literally providing protection from other gangs? Maybe even working with local government when it suits us.
>>2687767I want Jap-Russo YakuMafia so bad I can't even lie. But yeah, there's no reason we can't still deal drugs, sell weapons, and move bodies, especially if that money goes back into the community or works to undermine the community of a rival gang. Chaotic Good doesn't mean Chaotic Nice.
>>2687776>Chaotic Good doesn't mean Chaotic Nice.There might could be an argument for lawful evil really
>>2687785I mean, considering the decentralized and transient nature, but CG and LE might not only be a matter of perspective, but exist in equal measure.
>>2687811Perhaps a structure where the "core" of the organization is rather firm but exclusive, and allows for a very wide array of associates. I mean it's pretty cliche but say several families syndicated together would make for a strong inner circle, and would be the heads of the organization, but jimmy on the corner and bobby in the union while being associated with the gang aren't actually full on members. But if the big dogs come calling? They answer.Tats signifying rank and accomplishment, but still allow for a professional appearance I say.
And if we're gonna yakuza/russian mafia, we have to have bath houses I guess
>>2687776>deal drugs, sell weaponsMatter of fact, so, we're in the water business out in the wastes right? Sounds like something that could easily coincide with moonshining, and we also have that trading post dealing with the nomads right? Well, who better to sell guns to? And so we have this fancy restaurant right? Well, where better to get delicacies from for that restaurant? Sounds like a pretty nice trade loop to me.
>>2688059>>2687835Sounds pretty good. But what shall we call them?
>>2688488To the name generators
Considering that we're communal, and therefore very upfront in most of our dealings, something with the word association, society or club might fit well.
>>2688505Something Clan?Since this is a death world and we're only really notable because of our crypt moons, a lot of gangs and planet culture can revolve around death and burial imagery, more so than the rest of the Imperium. So Cremators, Euthanizers, etc or something like the Ossuary Clan. Or we could learn hard into the blood feud aspect and simply be in the "mafia" but belong to a particular crime family. Perhaps our bosses used to be city big wigs, locked in combat with another big family, but our enemies sold out to Guilders, moved to the Hive, and used to own our turf. This callous disregard for the place they came from could explain why we are so protective of our people, but their power and status over us would necessitate our flexible structureThat, and owning a restaurant is a classic mob move
I also realize that amounts of Mongol would be a good bridge between Russian and Japanese. The Atlakhan Crime Family?
>>2688586I like it! We could have flavors of the Great Khans from New Vegas, too.
>>2688586Hm, maybe something Chinese sounding? Black Lotus Society/Syndicate something like that? Golden something, Celestial something. I like the idea of using a name that seems like something of a legitimate organization considering how our gang rolled up.Maybe making drugs/herbal medicines from parts of the deadly fauna/flora and selling it could be a thing? Whether it works or not.
>>2688586>>2688795Mongol and Great Khans seems kind of like a theme of what I would expect to see out of the nomads/warboy types. I could certainly see interactions with those types, maybe even some crossover with our associates out manning the water still and trading post. Would seem kind of out of place in a megacity/hive environment I would think. Due to loose association I think it'd be fair to expect a fairly colorful array of associates really.
>>2688795>>2688799>>2688820The crime family could have originated as nomads, coming into Kanus City when ur first started spilling from the hive. So the Mongol-esque elements have mellowed out greatly over the century or so, and are only really relevant in the actual family. The Russo-Japanese stuff has evolved naturally due to cultural drift.This explains our tight bonds to the nomad psychos and downtrodden, and our rivalry with what is no doubt an old blood Hive house, maybe even nobility. Our "traditional weapon" can be ritual knives, kukris or Bowie or trench knives, a weapon from guzzoline caravans and the untamed wilderness.
>>2688879Personally, not a fan mongol/nomad themed stuff. Background sure, but RPing it ain't for me.
>>2688893Well good. Because its background fluff. This is explicitly a quest about rising up the ranks of a gang, not being witnessed on fury road. The Mongol/Russian/Japanese cultural mishmash is just to make the gang stand out from generic imperial gang, or Necromunda. And having knives be a gang staple is pretty iconic. Like a Yakuza katana. >>2688799Well, Thrull has massive predatory Felines, maybe the Tiger Guild? Or Guild of Knives? Ash Guild, for crematory ash and the ash of manufactorum smoke stacks?

Like a Yakuza katana.Having come from "nomads" is kinda meh is my point, having actual katanas would be pretty cool really.The Golden Fang(s)?
>>2688952What, you can't dig humble raiders settling into a burgeoning mega city and despite all the odds flourishing into a formidable criminal force?
>>2688969Not really.Established criminal enterprise with lots of tradition is more to my liking.
>>2688987That's. That's what this is.Were talking more than a century of history. The Nomad thing is ancient history, and the history of the crime family itself, not necessarily the hangers on
>>2689006A century isn't very long, underdogs are lame, and "nomad" style isn't my thing.Well, I'll see how it pans out I guess but I'll probably be checking out.Chargen sucks.
>>2689015Or so. Look at the cultural shifts in the western world in the last 50 years alone. A concerted effort and will to adapt can have savages be business suited gangsters in mere decades. The nomad thing are their roots, but it doesnt define them. And in the Imperium, all gangers are underdogs in the face of the Arbites.I've pretty much gotten what I need from this thread. I'll let this one die and make the Hive Ganger Quest thread when I'm ready.
