    83 KB Lictor Quest Part X That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 12/22/09(Tue)11:00 No.7245185  
    I know I said that the next thread would be on the 25th, but my schedule opened up unexpectedly. Pic more related than you might think. Previous Thread:

    Time until Fleet's arrival: 3 days
    Time until Planetary Shadow in the Warp: 0
    Inventory/Assets: Lictorcron named "Chewy", Inferno Pistol, assorted archeotech, 20 Plasmarippers.
    Current Biomorphs: Rending Claws, Mantid Claws, Bioplasma, Feeder Tendrils, Chameleonic Scales, Drug Miasma (Obscura, slaught, frenzon), Adrenal Glands, Egg Sacs, Synapse Node, Warp-Lobe, Pistol Socket, Ovipositor, Flesh Hooks, Stinger, Toxin Sacs
    Warp Abilities: Telekinesis, Telepathy, Mind-Blast, Localized Shadow in the Warp, Synapse Control, Levitation, Holocaust

    You and your minions just finished butchering a squad of 5 Grey Knight Terminators, after taking some very heavy losses. You were then accosted by some sort Tzeentchian warp-entity, which got bored with you and disappeared. The only things that might make it difficult for the Hive Fleet to absorb this world: Remains of the nearby Slaaneshi Cult, the Khornate Cult in the hive's upper reaches, and the Inquisitorial Battle Barge orbiting the planet.

    WHAT DO?

    We can't do shit about the Battle Barge at the moment, at least not without an assload of Tyrancrons and a ship. Chances are they'll Exterminatus the damn when the Fleet gets here...

    Chances are we should go after the Slaaneshi cult, load of up on possible Hallucinogen Grenades and implant as many as possible along the way so we might have enough forces to assault that barge later.

    But, yeah.

    Always been sorta an idea of mine, and i've always wondered if it could work or even if it would happen....

    But... say a tyranid fleet is slurping by and comes along a nice tasty planet with gobs of angry little crunchy creatures on it with tons of guns.... Of course the fleet wants to consume the planet, but the indigineous are being problematic to the survival of the hive...

    Could the Fleet knock a nearby moon into the planet with sheer force/psychic pushing? or are they that massive?

    TLDR: Tyranid Exterminatus? how do?

    Top of the hive, primarily the children of Nobility.

    Confirmed: Drop off Breedrippers on the way the the Slaaneshi plant.

    When you finally make it back to the tremendous garbage dump where the cult resides, with the plant in the center, you see an interesting sight. The plant itself is dim, obviously shut down by your slaught and frenzon-mines in the ventilation systems. However, you're able to detect ample psychic activity in the chambers below the filth.

    Are we all forgetting that they're probably summoning a demon down there? We can't guarantee Shadow in the Warp will stop them, and as it is a Slaaneshi cult, most of them are probably drugged as hell anyway.

    Chewy kicks open a hole down into the chamber, and sails downward, accompanied by a rain of Plasmarippers, which begin blasting indiscriminately. One by one, the plasma rippers are getting fried by lightning arcing off the portal. Chewy begins to RIP'N'TEAR the cultists closest to him, but the portal is still expanding - It's now the size of a manhole cover, and you can see a birdlike eye the size of a dinner plate staring out through it.

    Chewy consumed all the GK gear. Sadly, he's made of Necrodermis, so can't really utilize/reproduce any psychic-based effects.

    Chewy status: 1m from the portal, which is now large enough to drive a Rhino through.

    Chewy's head turns, looking back up to you in your nest on the ceiling. He fires off a quick synaptic data-parcel to your mind - too much data to be processed instantly.

    Having sent you his last report, he turns back to the cackling Daemon, and spreading his arms, walks through the portal, as Null-energy pulses visibly across his form.

    As soon as he has been fully engulfed by the portal, it shrinks down to the size of the head of a pin for a moment, then explodes in a burst of pure warp-energy, blowing the entire complex sky-high. You're ejected from the trash pit, sent flying over the slums and into one of the upper floors of an abandoned building in the center of the business district of the underhive - which is currently under about 60 feet of water, with you having landed on a story about 20 feet above the water level..

    Unpacking data parcel...

    The packet of information is a record of Chewy's life. His birth deep within Doomlictor's egg sacs, his successful attack on the Slaaneshi cult's leader, of which he was the only survivor, and his absorbtion of the Necrontyr tech - The precise moment that he gained his own conciousness. And decided to continue to obey Doomlictor's synaptic instructions, without question.

    He retained his own mind throughout the following events, seperate and apart from your own - His technological brain slowly coming into its own. All of the Necronized tyranid organisms were directly under his control, not yours. He could have disobeyed an order at any time, to act in his own best interests of self-preservation. He could have, with his brood, turned on you at any time.

    And yet he didn't.

    And throughout all of this, one underlying desire, so strong as to replace the urge to feed. So strong that he disregarded his own newly-discovered sense of self in order to pursue it.

    The desire to make the Hive Mind proud. But more specifically, to make his creator, Doomlictor, proud. He knew that it was a futile desire, he knew that pride was an emotion unknown to the Tyranid swarms of which Doomlictor was a part. But his desire was there all the same. And he pursued it, to his death. He knew that he would not be able to be reabsorbed back into the Hive Fleets, and so ended himself to give you a chance. A chance to complete your mission.

    As to the drawfaggotry... Someone in the thread last night was going to draw up the scene of NecrolictorChewy pulling out the Justicar's hearts, but so far no one has even proposed anything similar with Doomlictor. Perhaps because at this point, no one's sure what he looks like.

    We don't need them to drag it; we can just lift it with our telekinesis. And if we don't need to actually devour a Ripper to detect any changes, then we shouldn't bother.

    Suggestion: Cut Hive Node 1 off from the hivemind. His suggestions have only been detrimental to the mission and have ultimately lead to the loss of Chewy, a valuable resource.

    Chewy could almost guarantee victory against the Battle Barge, if we got there, but he could in no way stand against the whole fleet. Some resistance from him would have been bad, but an exterminatus on the planet because we fail to stop the barge will ruin everything.
    >> Anonymous 12/22/09(Tue)14:45 No.7247759
    Based upon our information from the Grey Knights' brains, the battle barge is equipped for standard orbital bombardment but not exterminatus. There's no guarantee that there are no other ships around with that capability, though.

    Ripper-derivative: Anything based off of the ripper template.
    Gaunt-derivative: Hormagaunts, Termagants, Spinegaunts, Gargoyles, and anything else from the Gaunt template.
