    12 KB Guardsman Quest! Part 2! Uplifted Infantryman 10/06/10(Wed)14:09 No.12350366  
    Part 1: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/12326310

    You are Sargent David "Smoker" Hayter, member of the Jourian 12th Dragoons of the Imperial Guard. After surviving a brutal attack on your division by the nefarious Eldar, you began your quest to find humanity, and get off this mudball alive.

    On your way you found Corporal Hal Emmerich, a member of your old fire-team before the attack, and Private Sheila Taggardt, driver of the Scout Salamander "Evaline".

    When we last left our motley crew, they had just loaded the heavy weapons they had found in the abandoned armoury onto Evaline, and were about to head off to the co-ordinates the final order before the death of the commanding officers specified.

    Let's Rock.

    "Smoker?" Hal asks, sounding slightly nervous.

    "Yeah?" You respond, raising an eyebrow and putting a Lho stick in you mouth, before reaching for your lighter. "What is it?"

    "Well, you just said 'Let's Rock.' Before spacing out for a minute, sir."

    "Oh." You reply, lighting your Lho. "Well, we know where we're going. We should get moving. You got the heavies in yet?"

    "Yes sir!" Sheila shouts, as she heaves the final box of ammunition, namely the one holding the missiles for the missile launcher, into the back of the Salamander.
    >> Reagh for the skies 10/06/10(Wed)14:27 No.12350465
    Ok then, the order of the day aught to be to maneuver the salamander cautiously towards those coordinates, crossing fingers that the sight of them fills us with hope.

    Sheila needs to take her helmet off and show us her ears. She might be an Eldar in disguise. Failing that, we will see her beautiful hair.

    As you sit down and strap yourself in in the passenger seat up front, Sheila straps herself in behind the controls. Whilst you're usually fairly unflappable and stoic, the sight of Sheila's face as she starts up Evaline terrifies you beyond all belief.

    "Strap in tight everyone. We're going there fast, and we're not stopping for anything short of the Emperor himself."

    "Smoker?" Hal shouts from the back. "I'm scared."

    After a very bumpy ride, you arrive at the co-ordinates.

    But the sight you see is anything from hope-inspiring. About ten bodies are scattered in the clearing, all of them with the markings of the 12th Jourian Dragoons.

    However, what intrigues you is the fact that not all the bodies seem to have been attacked by Eldar. There are other, more explosive bullet holes in other bodies.

    Looks like you have more to worry about than just Eldar.

    Hayter smokes some more, atmospherically.

    He's pretty sure Sheila isn't a xenos. He thinks he would have noticed if her jawline was broader than his.

    You muse about the strange silence. There's a definate feel of loss and death in the air.

    You don't find any survivors, but you do get to take a closer look at the wounds. Only two of the bodies seem to have been killed by Eldar. The others seem to have been killed with Solid-Projectile weapons, and some of them looked like they were hacked to death with some sort of cleaver.

    As you check the bodies, one of them grabs your wrist. "They were huge..." the body says, pulling itself up slightly, clearly on his deathbed. "Huge, muscled... And the noise... The noise..." As these words escape his lips, his eyes roll into the back of his head, and his eyelids drop.

    "Hal!" You shout.

    "Yes Smoker?" He shouts in reply.

    "You got your entrenching tool?"

    "Of course sir."

    "Then let's get digging. We have graves to dig."
    As you dig the graves, you think to yourself about what could have caused the horrible wounds that killed these men.

    "Well, there has to be another command centre somewhere. We're probably just out of range of their vox." You reason. "Sheila, you think you can get us there?"

    "You mean can I get us three to a supposed command centre that we don't even know exists? Sure, don't see why not." She replies, her tone dripping with sarcasm.

    "What do we do Smoker?" Hal asks, turning to you.

    "What do you mean, sir?" Sheila interrupts, confused and angry. "They have survivors. We have to go to them."

    "This is Sargent David Hayter of the Jourian 12th Dragoons. We are coming to pick up the survivors of our squad. How many are there?" You say, interrupting the repeating message, being spoken by a thoroughly bored individual.

    "Oh! Sir, this is James Higgins. We have two wounded individuals from your division here, waiting for extraction. What's your ETA?" The voice responds

    "Understood sir." She replies, clearly taking this seriously.

    You arrive at the source of the signal, a seemingly normal civilian domicile, bizarrely situated in the middle of nowhere. As you ponder this, you knock on the door, Corporal Hal standing next to the door, Lasgun in hand.

    The figure that opens the door is an elderly, raven haired gentleman. Dressed in a smart black suit, and wearing a pair of glasses, he looks very much like a doctor.

    "Mr James Higgins I assume?" You ask the elderly gentleman.

    "That would be me, yes." The elderly man replies, sounding somewhat irritated.

    "I believe you have two men that belong to me, Mr Higgins." You state, sounding slightly more gruff than usual. If he's gonna be snippy, you'll get gruff.

    "One man, Sargent." The man replies.

    "One? I thought you said-" You start, but are cut off.

    The woman, on the other hand, seems... Off. Raven haired, piercing blue eyes and a considerable bust, never the less something about her unnerves you.

    Well, wait to see if either Keldo or Perry know how to use their stuff. Ask Mr. Higgins if he witnessed the attack; if not, when does he suppose it happened? If he's good enough to take a bullet out of someone safely, he can probably estimate when it went in.

    Tell Hal to keep an eye on the two. Then whisper the same to Sheila, on the comm bead.

    I'm not very far into the thread, but I've just got a couple of nitpicks. First, it's magazine, not clip! I know how people think it's okay either way, but they're two very different things. Besides being correct, it's also shorter to type mag! Win/win.

    Second, it's spelled 'sergeant', or in vary rare cases, 'serjeant', but never 'Sargent'. Sargent is a surname.

    "Well, Keldo here can use the Lascannon if we get a tripod. And Perry can use a LongLas."

    "I'd just finished sniper training when I was shipped out Sir." Perry beams at you. As you're thinking about her lips, Evaline drives up.

    "Hey Sir, these the two newbs?" Sheila says, as she pokes her head out of the door.

    "I'll have you know that I outrank you Private." Keldo snarls.

    I'm not simply going to let it go, because it's wrooooooong. A clip goes -into- a magazine. I don't see what's amusing about being wrong in this manner. You could fill me in on that, though. You say that most people just don't care: so why don't they just say mag instead of clip? It's shorter, and they apparently don't care which they type, and it helps avoid getting nagged at by people who know how a gun works.

    Except there are major differences. HP is a gameplay mechanic, one that is necessary in all sorts of games because to have an actual injury system would require a ridiculous amount of complexity that would slow the game down by a ridiculous amount. Using clip wrong is not a gameplay mechanic.

    Also, clip's wrong use does not have it's roots in 40k, or DH. It pre-dates both. I also do not believe that clip is even a part of 40k, rather it's a part of Dark Heresy because the author didn't know what the fuck he was writing.

    For the record, it was me, the supposed troll, that posted u mad bro. I noticed it but there's not a whole lot to debate with that, nor am I going to just leave people being wrong because someone yelled at me in caps.

    You may think I am a troll, but I just want people to use English correctly. There is no reason to degrade our language into something less as time goes by. You gain absolutely nothing from using the term clip over mag. But people do it anyways. And it's becoming so widespread I'm afraid that clip will replace magazine altogether to the common person within a few generations. As more people use clip, more businesses start to use clip instead of magazine, and then more common people think it's clip because they see that. Bungie calls magazines a clip in their games that are played by millions, especially young kids. And if these people grow up thinking clip is right, and then they have children who learn that clip is right, who will know that magazine is right other than the minority that knows how a gun actually works?

    So please, don't be stubborn. Think of the children sixty years from now, and make sure they speak a language that isn't infinitely more retarded and less descriptive than we speak now.

Keldo, you're going to be Heavy Weapons. If we can't make a run for it, we will blow up as much shit as we can that'll allow us to make a run for it. Me and Hal will take general assault, and Sheila will handle Evaline. Got all that?"

    In the familiar chorus, all of the group shouts "Sir yes sir!"

    "Good. Now, let's rock."

    I don't trust Perry worth a damn. With Keldo, giving him the sidearm like I said before, let's him be armed with something he can use at close range, say if his spotter turned on him. Sheila wouldn't be set up with the heavy weapons, in any case. It would be dismount, move on foot to SBF and assault positions, and if shit gets nasty, call in Evaline. Giving Keldo the sidearm is also a sign of trust.
