    Sup/tg/ is down due to streaming, will post link to archived material when it comes back.
    Also, I have no real excuse for skipping an extra 2 days, so lets just pick up where we left off.

    Last time you met the Captain, who, being a psyker, was understandably uncomfortable in your presence. You and Emmie, both being some form of Null, have that effect on people of her type. You also negotiated for some better weapons. Both you and Emmie now have Hellguns.
    Today is the day you will be dropping off the rest of the Hellgun shipment, disguised as foodstuffs. You've already left the Warp, but are still a few hours away from the rendezvous. Ralph has called the two of you to the Cargo hold.

    You rouse Emmie from a nap and, after getting properly dressed, head down to the Cargo Hold. Ralph nods to you as you enter. "Hey there. We won't be landing for the delivery, a shuttle will be meeting us. Which means we need to prep these crates. Basically I just need you to stack them up near the airlock. I'd get the servitors to do it, but these crates are too small to bother. Stack only crates 25616 through 25648. You only have two hours, so hop to it."
    Several hours of heavy lifting later your arms feel sore and you have a neat 4x4x2 stack of boxes near the airlock. You also have the remaining boxes not part of this delivery restowed and ready for travel.
    Ralph reenters the Cargo hold with some water for the two of you. "The Shuttle will be here any moment now. They SHOULD have their own crew for loading, but just in case I need the two of you to stay here and-" Ralph is interrupted by Ismael on the PA. "Ralph, we just received some news. Tha boss' boss be on the shuttle. He be wanting ta meet the new pair."
    Ralph curses. "Well this is unexpected. I don't suppose you two have ever met an Inquisitor before?"

    You are, understandably, freaked out. You ask about Protocol as you hastily buckle on your weapon's belt and adjust your greatcoat, having discarded both while you were working. Emmie hastily dons her mask and does likewise, picking a piece of lint off your shoulder. You try to get your mask on, but you can get it to fit right so you leave it on your belt.
    "Not that I know of, but I've only ever met this guy once. Try to relax and NOT think about the fact that he has the power to turn your home planet into glass. Oh and... don't say anything about the his ba-" Ralph is cut off as klaxons sound and lights flash above the airlock. The Airlock's Machine Spirit's voice beeps a few times and warns you to clear the area, and that the airlock will be opening shortly. The ship shutters and you hear a clunk as something attaches to the outside.
    The Airlock hisses open and immediately two well armored women point their weapons at the three of you. "Remove your weapons and step to the side of the wall!" They appear to be toting Hellguns and have Carparace armor. They have the Inquisitorial insignia on their helmets and chest-pieces.

    You very carefully, and very slowly, remove your weapons belt and, at the women's urging, shrug off your coat. You have to give Emmie a comforting smile before she removes her mask though. Ralph just sighs and takes off his pistol belt. He also removes a knife from the small of his back that is longer then your bayonet. The three of you walk to the wall and place your hands against it. A third woman leaves the airlock and, the first two still pointing their Hellguns at you, using a strange devise scans the three of you.
    After a few moments the third woman, whom you have not gotten a good look at, nods. The other two stand at attention and hold their weapons to port, but you have no doubt they can be brought back up quickly.
    "The three of you may now turn. Hello Ralph, you are looking well. And you two must be Niel and Emmi?" Before you stands an old man. He is hunched over a cane, and you can't see a single hair on his head. His eyes glow blue and must be augmetic, and you smell Iho smoke in the air. The large red stylized I hangs from around his neck on a gold chain, but the rest of the man is hidden in robes. "How do you do?"

    Great how are you? or should I say who are you?

    nulls or pariahs on there own have the power to be feared and have a field that reverse warp energy back on itself. However the downside to there power, is with out becoming a Culuxes Assasin or a Necron Pariah. For the most part they will just be hated instead off having a "shit yourself with fear" aura and can only truly harm a psyker if they share the same room for a long time. However that's just basic knowledge, the thing is most pariahs aren't aware of the fact they are one, so theoretically they may be able to access there powers similar to the manner a psyker can.

    You've never met an Inquisitor before and Ralph's words start to ring in your head. "Try to relax and NOT think about the fact that he has the power to turn your home planet into glass." You attempt a smile, but with your nerves as frayed as they are the results are... strange. Emmie shudders and turns bright red at the sight of your face and one of the guards, whom you now suppose are Stortroopers, suppresses a giggle. Assuring him that you are fine, you ask after his own well being.
    "Well, some Eldar Pirates were getting uppity not too far from here, but the virus bomb should have settled them down... and killed them. Now, my old feet are tired, let us retire to a more suitable location for conversation while my crew loads these packages." He gestures for the three of you to lead the way, and his guards fall into step behind him.

    Emmie is a Blank
    Blanks are generally don't have a level.
    The way they work is any warp based attacks (whether pariah or psyker) fizzle and die with in there aura. They also have a bad effect on the mental health of a psyker.

    We won't know the extent of our power until we try it out, however we can probably thank Emmie and her null field for preventing us from being hated.

    But blanks are just people with the pariah gene. It is one of several names, others being null, pariah, or any number of other epithets meaning "empty" or "outcast". They don't cancel other nulls. That's like saying a psyker cancels out other psykers. The most powerful nulls are generally referred to as pariahs and are taken by the Necrons to make "Pariahs" (nobody ever said they were creative) or the Culexus to make assassins. With the advanced tech and null-enhancing modifications the super-powerful pariahs are then transformed into the batshit brickshitting level of terror that can make anyone feel it and drive Eldar insane simply by being within the same general area.

    Ralph takes the lot of you to the Galley, saying it has the best seats on the ship. As you all settle, the Inquisitor steeples his hands and looks at you and Emmie. "Now, I feel is is safe to assume the two of you might have some questions for me. Oh, and Semele, a cup of tea please?" One of the Guards, who's hair appears to be dark black with streaks of blue, moves foreword and starts moving about the Galley, making a pot of tea.
    And so you ask about being a Pariah, and Emmie being a null, and how you were found.
    His brow furrows. "Pariah? This is why I hate messengers. They always muddle things. It's like that game the juvies play, where they pass a message ear to ear? It always comes out completely different. No Niel, you are merely an extremely powerful Blank, not quite the level of what we typically call a Pariah. Your mere presence cancels out Warpcraft. And you also have an adverse effect on Psykers. I suspect if anyone more powerful then Ms. Drake was around you, they would experience more then a mere nosebleed. Emmie, on the other hand, is relatively weak. Her own field of effect extends to no farther then herself. She would have to be touching a Psyker to cancel out any of their abilities. Now, I believe the confusion stemmed from an idle speculation of mine. I voiced a theory that, maybe, the offspring of the two of you would be more likely to be a Pariah. As far as I know, no two blanks have ever produced offspring. Oh, thank you." Emmie's ears redden at the Inquisitor's words. Semele sets a steaming cup of tea before the Inquisitor. "Now then, perhaps you have further questions?"
    >> Anonymous 06/23/10(Wed)05:37 No.10685062
    The Lex has been wrong before. But even if it's 100% right and takes into account all the fluff everywhere then they are just different manifestations of the same thing. Pariahs are more powerful and localized and blanks have a large field of it that can protect others. It still wouldn't make sense for it to nullify other nullsouls.

    The Inquisitor nods. "Those are all very good questions. OH! But where ARE my Manners? I had COMPLETELY forgotten to introduce myself! I am Inquisitor Skimmer, of the Ordos Xenos." He adds a little honey to his tea and takes a sip. "Let's see... First, why haven't you been recruited into the Inquisition yet... Well, as I said before, Emmie is not very strong, as Blanks go. Though still a potent weapon, needing physical contact limits her uses. They can still feel her for what she is before entering her field of effect. As for yourself... well you just hadn't been found yet. There are quite a few people in the Imperium you know. You only came to my attention by accident. As for your other questions, no, you are not sterile. Though good luck finding many women who would be willing to stay with you for any extended time, other Blanks excluded. And no, I don't believe that you can focus your abilities like that... At least as far as I know. Psykers are not exactly my field of study."
    He leans back as you ask about Emmie's baby. "Interesting... are you sure you wish to know? What if the boy is happy, or at least as happy as Kriegers can get? If you truly wish to know, I will have some of my agents look into it, though it may take some time."

    You look over to Emmie, who nods her head. "Yes, yes I do want to know. It's... it's something I've wanted for a very long time now."
    Inquisitor Skimmer thinks for a minute then smiles, his teeth are whiter then pearls. "I think that can be arranged." His smile turns into a mere grin when you ask about your future. "Well now... that depends. I find that people are far more willing to be helpful when they wish to be helpful. I will find Emmie's son if you agree to help me when I have need of you. I am not a cruel man, and you will find that I can find you when I need to. It is hard to lose the Inquisition. And I would prefer if you stayed aboard the Blazing Profits. Having a Blank on my staff could make things... complicated. I have several Psykers on my permanent staff you see." He takes another long sip of tea. "However, if you refuse my offer then I will leave, you will be left at the next port with all the wages due to you, and you will never see me again. You will also never see Emmie's son or receive any help finding him. You will also be constantly monitored by the Inquisition, for security reasons. But I can swear to you that you will never be harmed by me, any of those working for myself, or the Ordos Xenos. I will not, however, be able to protect you should any Inquisitor of the other two Ordos happen upon you."
