    Why did it come to this, you wonder. All you wanted to do was fight in The Great War, maybe earn you’re place in the history of the Imperium. Now, you’re in a veritable hell, your arm has been slashed to hell by an axe crazy madman, and a demon has it in for you. Man, it sucks to be you sometimes. Still, you’re doing a hell of a lot better than most people that started this voyage. When the geller field failed, the population of the ship went from thousands to a mere few hundreds, and that’s an optimistic guess. You’ve killed your old friend Jimmy with a las-shot where his eyes should have been, most of the survivors have gone crazy, and between the brutal murders and that poor medic you found in the medical-bay, no one seems to be okay anymore.

    At least you’re doing better than the guy in front of you. Laying stomach down in a pool of blood, the poor bastard got his head vaporized by a point blank shot from a meltagun. You’d feel bad for him, if he hadn’t just tried to kill you. Damn, the place is so disgusting it makes you want to puke you guts out. The floor is littered with limbs, charge packs, bullets and blood. Several men have been gutted and torn apart, organs laying on the ground for all to see. A few have been nailed to the wall like some sort of macabre cross, each of them headless. They hang by nothing but their hands, which have been pierced through the palms by metal spikes.

    If you weren’t in shock, you know you’d have curled up into a ball at the sight of it saying oh god over and over again. Are you just getting desensitized to it all, getting used to the atrocities and losing your humanity? You hope not. It doesn’t matter though, because you have a job to do, and no matter what happens to you, you’re going to get it done.

    What do you do?

    Salvage anything and everything of possible use. Search for the armor mentioned in the first thread as well as any of the weapons. Take the axe and any full charge packs.

    If it's possible rig a few used packs to overload and blow up the remains of the armory to both prevent others from finding the horrible ritualistic murder scene and to give the men killed here some form of final rights instead of leaving their body hanging on a wall.

    Ow, ow, ow. Fuck your arm hurts, and lifting all this crap around isn’t helping. You try to bandage your arm, but you left most of the medical stuff back at the chapel. With all this free flowing blood around you, you’re almost a little worried about getting some in your wound. With your luck, you’d have to get it amputated. Now that would ruin your day.

    The armor sadly, already seem to have been looted. At least the good sutff, anyway. You do manage to find a fresh suit of flak armor, which is nice seeing yours has a couple large cuts now due to the axe bastard. First the las-burn, and now the cut? At this rate the armory’s going to cost you limb or two. After switching into a fresh suit of armor, you also switch out for a fresh pair of pants, but keep your under shirt so people can read you ID tag. Like hell you want to be mistaken for an imposter.

    Most of the armory had been destroyed or looted by now, so there’s only so much you can get. There’s plenty of lasgun charge packs, as well as a couple shot guns and riot shield. The shield aren’t lasgun proof, but should work against knives and bullets well enough. There’s also a heavy stubber that isn’t in pieces, and with a bit of work could definitely help the barricade. Under a dead body you find a box of about twenty frak grenades ready for use. All the other grenades must have been either stolen or used by now. For yourself, you find a handheld flashlight, as well as a laser pointer and grenade launcher attachment for your lasgun. You’d be disappointed in yourself if you couldn’t find a creative use for that last one.

    What do you do?

    Put what when can on a sheild using it like a sled and dragging it all behind us... Let's get what we can back to the chapel. We could use the help healing and they could use the stubber, nades, ammo, he'll even the flak vest we just discarded may help some of the chaplains.
    >> GM !!0fEYB5hrFn3 08/06/10(Fri)01:41 No.11548471

    You grab one of the sheilds, and use it as a make shift sled. Hopefully, nothing will slip off during the trip. You load your new grenade launcher and put as much as you can on the sled without slipping off, but only soomuch can be carried. In the end, you get 3 shotguns, two boxs worth of bullets (about 800 in total), a set of flak armor, and the stubber. The grenade box just manages to fit, and you stash a couple in your pockets for yourself.

    After taking down the bodies, you prepare to leave. The blood on the floor acts as a natural lubricnt, allowing the for the shield to slide rather easily. You exit the armory, and come to the stairwell. You ca either take the elevator, or the stairs.

    What do you do.

    Taking the elevator would probably be easier on us considering all the damage. Hit the call button, but take a few steps back from it and keep your lasgun on the doors. If anything hostile pokes itself out 'nade it.

    Soldier you need to find your brethren at the chapel and prepare to retake the Gellar field. Find a tech adept should be your first priority once you have team at your back. I also recommend taking the priest from the chapel as he may prove instrumental is safeguarding your soul. Drive the demons back. Take back the Emperor's vessel. Remember you are right, and they are wrong!
    >> GM !!0fEYB5hrFn3 08/06/10(Fri)02:03 No.11548752

    You press the button for the elevator, or Holy Elevatus as the tech guy called it when you were given a tour of the ship. Seriously, who makes the guy with a machine for a face give tours? The war must really be leaving the Imperium low on man power if its gotten that bad. Quickly ducking behind cover, you raise you lasgun to fire should there be anything bad waiting behind the doors. A minute passes by, and you grow bored. Is the damn thing ever going to show up? I bet it’s broken.

    As your about ready to give up, the doors finally slide open, you see something you didn’t expect on the other side. In the middle of the back wall of the elevator, there is a giant eye. It looks to be growing out of the very wall, and is surrounded by withering shadows. You freeze at the sight. That last time you saw a demon it tried to make you give in to fear an desperation, and wanted your soul. It looks at you. You lock eyes. You lose track of time, incapable of moving in fear. What should you do? The hell if you know? Would your rocket launcher work? Fuck, it’s a demon can you even kill them?

    Then, suddenly a you hear something. No, hearing isn’t the right word. Its like words, just appear in your mind, and a voice accompanies them. It says, “Going up or down,” as if bored.

    What do you do?
    >> Anonymous 08/06/10(Fri)02:07 No.11548804

    Don't do it soldier! It's trying to tempt you! You may go in that elevator and be stuck for eternity to horrible banshee wail of elevator music. Take the goddamn stairs. Secure your sled so none of that shit will fall.

    “Uh… down?” you say, unsure of what to do. It doesn’t seem threatening. Then again, it’s a demon, so it probably wants to trap you for all eternity playing horrible elevator music. Still, the only other way down are the stairs, and if you took the sled down there it would probably knock loose some of your supplies and lose them.

    “Very well,” it says, mentally imposing the words in your head. Damn, that’s freaking creepy. It gives you the idea of what schizophrenic people are like, having multiple voices in their head. Note to self: do not go insane and develop multiple personalities. Given this is a quest, it’s probably to late for that. You slowly leave your cover, still wary of the elevator demon. You take out your laspistol, and hold it with one hand while dragging the sled with the other, and enter the elevator. With a ding, the doors close and your stuck in the elevator until the demon lets you go. Hopefully that’ll be when it arrives on your floor. Oddly enough there are no buttons on the inside, meaning you have no way of indicating where you want to go. You mull over the dilemma for a moment, and then turn towards the eye and tell it you want to go to the chapel level. The eye says very well again, and blinks. The elevator lurchs for a moment, and begins to move , hopefully downward.
    >> GM !!0fEYB5hrFn3 08/06/10(Fri)02:26 No.11549023

    The silence is weird, and rather annoying. Damn it, you always hated awkward silences. In an attempt to start up a conversation you say, “Hi, my name is Guardsman Private P-”

    “I already know you name Guardsman,” it says, cutting you off. “I know a lot of things.” Well, now this is awkward. You check over your capitol, and change the clip. Silence. Then, the voice begins, “My name is beyond human understanding and would destroy your mind to hear it. Not mention you wouldn’t pronounce it right and it would offend me. Yu may call me… Frank. Piece of advice, don’t get off on your floor. There are some daemons waiting to ambush anyone coming out of the elevator there.”

The chapel, Emperor bless their soul, is now a lost cause.

    "Yeah, alot of demons are like that," Frank responds, as if bored. "Truth be told, we're power by emotion. I'm fuelled by all the apathetic elevator operators of all time, so I really don't care. There's a reason your Emperor wants to eradicate religion. I'd imagine he'd be mighty upset if he knew about your holy book."

    You find your hand sliding towards Jimmy's bible, but stop yourself. Just then, the door opens, and what you can only think of as Death walks in. A tall, robed figure, with skeletal hands holding a scythe walks in. The door closes. He says something in a language you can't understand and don't want to to Frank. Franks blinks, and the elevator begins to move again. The robed figure looks down at you, and says, "Who are you?"

    Thats not your name. Oddly enough, your name is a rather relgious,or at your family name is. It dates back to the arrival of the Space Marines on your planet. When your world was first brought into the Imperium a few centuries ago, your family sided with these so called crusaders who renamed your family in honor of their service to the Imperium. It has long been a point of pride to your family, who has had strong ties with the church even since.

    You tell Death your real name. At first he seems almost... shocked. Yeah, thats the word. He then nods, saying "Figures I'd share an elevator with you. Still I'll be seeing you again soon enough. Don't worry, It's painless and you won't feel a thing. You go down a real hero, holding the line. Actually rather famous for it."

    His name is frank, and he reminds to adress him as such or he will leave you in front of a group of daemonettes only interested in consensual sex in the missionary position. You don't know what daemonettes are, but they he says it makes it sounds horrible. When he asks you about other soldier, he says he's got no idea.The only ones he knows about are the ones that ride his elevator. Your the only who's been brave enough to do that.

    He does suggest you try to stop on the floor above where you intended though, and sneak around the daemons. "Remember, faith and emotion are the real weapons in the warp."

    You apologize to Frank for being rude, and then thank him for the lift. He tells you it's no problem, just doing his job. Afterwords you ask him to drop you off one floor above the chapel level, to which he agrees to do.

    You then turn to death. Apparently, he's been talking to Frank about hooking up with this hot chick at the animal supply store this weekend. From what you overhear, he met her while getting food for the Grim Reaper of Rats. Huh, Death has a love love life. Who knew? You ask him when you're going to die. He looks down at you, and then pull back his robe to reveal a watch on his bone wrist. He then looks back at you and says, "Not for a while. A couple weeks, tops. I'll be busy on Terra for a while.

    "Alive?" he asks, curious as to what you mean. "What is alive? You mean in your current, mortal form? Your body is fleeting, and no body truly alive to me. Even the Chaos gods are barely 'alive,' those simple beings with only petty goals in mind. They may seem grand and complex, but they're nothing but a buch of cry babies who cry if they don't get what they want. Your emperor is alive, but only a baby to me. Now if you mean alive as in concious, then yes, people are alive. But you die again so quickly, reincarnating into new bodies, forgetting yourselves and your memories. Or at least, you used to."

    Well this is weird. When did life get so surreal? Death pauses, and then adds, "Well I can't tell you how you die. That would be like skipping to the end of story, and missing out on all the delightful character developement that brought you there."

    We really ought to consider falling to Chaos sometime soon. Considering all we've seen of the daemonic over the past few hours, if we ever made it back to the Imperium, we'd get BLAM'd just as a precautionary measure, regardless of how loyal we seemed.

    You thank death for telling you everything. Knowing your going to die in a few weeks makes you feel... strange. At first, your depressed knowing you're probably not going to ever get home. At this rate, you'll probably just die aboard the ship.

    Any yet, it's liberating. Your not going to die. Not for a while, at least. No matter what happens, you're going to survive. And now, your not afraid. You're it's going to be heroic, saving people. What ever it is, you'll be a guardsman to the end.

    Anyway, I wouldn't be so certain about our invulnerability in the meantime. I mean, Death didn't say our next few weeks would be pleasant; only that we'll be alive. We could be hideously maimed, dismembered, and tortured for weeks before we meet our heroic death.

    Caution is advisable.

    You exit the elevator, to almost walk into a large bent over man in red robes. Carefully avoiding hitting him, you notice he has a glowing red eye and a metal tentacle coming out of his back.

    Ask if he can either help you get to the chapel for a quick medical treatment to your arm and then the two of you can do his plan, or if he can forge a prothstetic quickly to help your injured arm.... Wihout amputating the whole thing unless necessary.

    >and try to connect with Mars to see how to fix the field.
    Ah, wait. You mean that, right now, you know of no way to fix the geller field? Fuck!

    Alright, listen, there's a group of demons on the floor below us, I just got past them and onto that elevator. I'm heading to the chapel, it's been barricaded up and turned into a makeshift hospital.

    Right now I don't know of a safer place on this ship, not that there really are any. If you come back with me, we can rearm and then set out together to look for the navigator or an astropath.

    If we find the navigator then maybe they might be able to bring us out of the warp and into real space, but I'm guessing Mars could have it's hands full right now so I wouldn't hold out for that astropath.

    "Hm," his voicebox says, a static song being emitted to show that the tech priest is thinking. A couple seconds later he looks at you and say, "Very well. I am not trained in the Medical field, so I can not help. Unless you want a servitor or servo-skull." You think he's joking, but then again...

    "I am known as Rune Priest 01001000 01100101 01110111 01101000 01101111 01110000 01100101 01110100 01110011 01110011 01100101 01110010 01110110 01101111 01110011 01101011 01110101 01101100 01101100 01110011. But before we go, there is one probelm: transportation. I was waiting on the elevator becuase I cannot use the strair well. It is raining, and I will not expose my circuits to warp water. Who knows what could happen?"

    What do you do?

    Just how bad is our arm? Can we just tough it out or is it unusable? We could just go with him now...

    "I wouldn't advise going that way regardless, when I was down there, I think I saw... things... in the water. I could try the elevator again, and get it to drop us off on a different floor, I really don't want to go to the one just below. "

    "But you know the layout of the ship better than I do, what is the shortest and fastest possible route back to the chapel. We need to get back there, it's fucking dangerous out here, and every second we delay could cost the men there their lives. Oh, and do you mind if I call you something shorter than 11001? Maybe just Rune Priest, Rooney, or just Frank?"

    He considers the question for a moment, cogitators working themselves to their maximum. They seem to go into overdrive when he notices your metlagun. "Well, the fastest way would be a straight line," indicating to your meltagun. You reach to pull it out, only to hurt your arm. The bandage is alarmingly red, and you'd rather not spend anymore time than you have to doing anything that will make yu bleed more.

    "As for my name, you my call me Cog. Frank is a such a human name."

    What do you do?
    >> Anonymous 08/06/10(Fri)05:25 No.11550907
    Well, shoot a hole in the floor and drop down through it, of course.

    If Frank the elevator daemon was telling the truth, there should be a group of daemonettes down there to greet us.
    >> Anonymous 08/06/10(Fri)05:29 No.11550946
    I think we should avoid combat. instead of just dropping where we are, get as close the chapel as we can an drop there. and he didn't say there were daemonettes, he just threatened us with them
    >> The Worst Person on Earth 08/06/10(Fri)05:32 No.11550969

    Frank just said there were daemons down there, not what kind they were. The daemonettes might be on an entirely different deck of the ship.

    We wouldn't want to drop down into a pack of plague bearers with our open wounds, now would we?

    "I don't have a ton of ammo for this baby. A few walls, a bulkhead, maybe cut some time off our journey, but I'd like to avoid using in if we could. Since ammo could be scare sooner or latter, I want to save it for when it's really needed."

    "Unless... you know a supply near by?"

    "Not really. I do know where we could get you a plasma gun though," he says. Somehow, you think you see a malicious glint in his biotics, and you don't know why. I mean, what could go wrong with a plasma gun?
    >> Anonymous 08/06/10(Fri)05:44 No.11551066
    Go toward the chapel, cut our way down with one round hitting the thinnest part of the deck with the techpreists aid, get arm fixed, then get plasma gun. Kindof like to just "assume" we do that without any problem and get to the plasma gun which has obviously something wicked tide into acquiring it.

    Take him up on his offer and pray to the False Emprah that the Grim Reaper was telling us the truth when he said we have at least a few more weeks to live.

    The trip is... boring. i mean sure, the flickering lights mean you can't se much, and the walls starting to bleed area a nice touch, but when your told by death your not going to die for a couple weeks, you stop being scared over every little thing. Weird. Eventually, you make it as close to the chapel as you can. Drawing out your meltagun, you strike hit the spot Cog indicates for you, buring a clean hole through the floor.You jump through, surprising the men at the barricade.

    After a little misunderstanding, and a few shots from overly nervous people at the barricades, Cog loads the sheild down with his mechandrite before lowering himself down. Soon, your both safe in the chapel, and the old deacon is overjoyed to see you alive. The tired old man sets to work with one of his fellow deacons to change your bandage and clean your wound, while the assistant hooks you up to an IV witha blood packet. Cog meanwhile fixes up the barricade and the heavy stubber, drastically making the chapel more defendable. All in all, a good days work.

    >Part 4 end
    >Part 5 begins tommorow, hopefully between 10:30 to 11:00 pm.
    >Alright, does anyone have any questions? I know this one was short, but I still think it was good.
