    You've just been beamed aboard the Inquisitorial Battle Barge. Standing before you is a bridge filled with plugged-in servitors, a few menials, and one very alarmed Inquisitorial agent.

    I guess combining the two would be talking to him gently and calmly about the merits of the hive. Ask if he can imagine no heaven, no god Emperor above and chaos below, just all the people living in harmony. And if that doesn't work, rip his face off and prance around with it a while.
    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 12/24/09(Thu)22:34 No.7276801

    The Genestealers instantly jump forward, and disembowel the man, before scuttling down the deck towards the alarmed menials.

    The Patriarch looks at you.

    <We need to beam the rest of my Brood aboard.>

    Well, let's deal with the planet's orbital defense batteries first.

    Hit them all at the same time, and as soon as possible.

    Then start going through our assorted absorbed memories, and the databanks of the barge, and using that to pick out any other targets that would finish the job of removing any local capacity for resistance.

    Still not much. They might end up cloning psychic Warriors though...

    Meh, they probably had it pretty early on. At some point in time, a location with GK's on it was probably attacked.

    If Doomlictor plays it smart though, I think he can keep on trucking through the Imperium, getting world after world swallowed up through his awesomeness.

    You know what we totally have to do?

    Set things up so that if you were to look at the planets we devour against a starmap, it reads out our motto:

    <we are DOOMLICTOR>
    <we do COCAINE>

    Thanks for running this. It's been great, even if I only made about half the threads.

    Doomlictor cruising the stars, only occasionally stopping at planets and either harvesting biomass or dropping off a clone of himself, is a great image to leave off on.

    Someone do me a favor and update the archive, I am ignorant of how to do so.

    I'm watching the Matrix trilogy atm, on Revolutions, so I'll still be around for... About an hour.

    ...Damn it, we were supposed to go fishing with our son after awesomely big fish. Damn it.

    And...this is the only time I have ever been emotionally torn between 'commiting suicide for the greater good of death-bugs' or 'continuing a life of drugs, hive-bringing and crazy-death as Rogue Trader DOOMLICTOR.'

    Tell you what, I'll run a mini-quest tomorrow so you guys can have your goddamn father-son v. giant fucking fish showdown.

    Sound like a plan?

    sup/tg/ auto-updates every couple hours. If a thread dies naturally instead of hitting autosage while still active, it generally catches all the posts.
    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 12/25/09(Fri)02:13 No.7279022

    Ah, good to know.

    So, fishing trip on the morrow, /tg/? Y/N?

    For one possible ending. For the other one, you better prepare Lictor Quest II: IN SPAAAAAACE
    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 12/25/09(Fri)02:17 No.7279058

    Chewy Quest comes first.

    Lictor Quest II... We'll see. I guess it'll depend on the level of demand.

    Thanks for the bump, kind sir.

    I personally find it ironic (I totally didn't plan this) that the OP contains Chewy's original and final biological forms.

    This Node wants Father Son fishing time so hard he can taste it. Anyway, it would be fun to see if we can reel the big one for chirstmas morning.
    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 12/25/09(Fri)02:23 No.7279114

    Then it will be done.

    I love it how you said 'Chances of Chewy are Slim to None' last thread, and the major thing we did is bring Chewy back, for father-son bonding.

    Also, DOOMLICTOR fishing is awesome.
    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 12/25/09(Fri)02:27 No.7279154

    If the players can find a way to get around my edicts that I didn't forsee, then they deserve to reap the rewards of their cleverness.

    Still ain't the original Chewy, though.

    He's our second son. The one that didn't have to get messily forced into the warp.
    >> That Motherfucking Goblin !XGZ8nDwSYI 12/25/09(Fri)02:38 No.7279245

    Yeeeeeaaaah, I'm still trying to figure out how that necrodermis of his is going to affect things in a dimension where it's more or less anathema to EVERYTHING.

    Merry Christmas you all, this is the last thread I look upon before letting sleep take me. I'll be back to see the adventures of Rogue Trader DOOMLICTOR soon, I'm sure.

    I have no fucking idea what effect Chewy suicide-bombing the warp had.

    Although I can almost guarantee you that Chewy Quest will open with you fighting a fucking Lord of Change.
