    65 KB Rogue Trader Quest part 9: The Return Tablet !!0fEYB5hrFn3 11/10/10(Wed)00:37 No.12743608  
    Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/12378977/

    Adventure is the luxury of the powerful, and for Rogue Trader Dolemite Deadlift, there could be no end of adventure. At least, that’s what he wished. Truth be told, he had been stuck on board of the Igneus Aequitas for three weeks as the repairs went underway. During a brief naval battle alongside the Imperial Navy against Orks in looted ships, the blessed ship that served as the home and base of operations for the Dolemite Dynasty had been damaged. Over a hundred lives were lost, and many more injured.

    The next couple days went by in a flash, as deals were made with Captain Cetus and funerals were attended. Mercifully, the navigator had soon thrown a party for the senior staff to forget about the whole thing. It also served as Dolemite’s first “date” with his incredibly creepy and possibly insane “girlfriend” of an astropath Invidia. While the Senechal did not approve, Jet had given you the thumbs up. Besides, it was so worth it to see H1256-J47 do the robot. Man, who knew he could dance like that?

    However, the excitement did not last long. Soon, days begin to drag on as repair reports came in and the young Lord Captain began signing the paper work the Seneschal had prepared for him. The only respite came from going drinking with Jet and your Archmilitant, and watching H1256-J47’s experiment’s end in disaster. At the very least, it seems the bee gun is operational and should be mass producible when the resources become available.

    In the captain’s courters, Dolemite Deadlift stirs from his sleep. Dreams of creepy astropaths and the horrors of previous missions in the Inquisition revisited wake him to the living world. In the most comfortable bed in the world Dolemite Deadlift is awake.

    You sit up and stretch, to prepare for the morning. An enjoyable bath and change of clothes later, you’re ready to seize the day by the horns. Exiting your closet, the Seneschal is waiting for you with the daily report and schedule. Thanking him, you receive the report and leaf through it. Finally, a bit of good news: the ship had been repaired to full and the last of the blessings would be done a little past lunch. About damn time, you should be able to leave today for that damn planet.

    Smiling, you look up to the Seneschal and ask if there is anything else you should know. With his ever monotone voice, he replies, “Bacon and sunny side up eggs today for breakfast, with a side of toast. You didn’t specify if you wanted pancakes or waffles last night, so both were made. Invidia will be joining you as usual in your study for breakfast. Apparently, she has a message for you, but she wouldn’t say from whom. Also, you have a meeting today with your Voidmaster in the hanger bay. I am aware of your rule of making them come visit you, but I don’t believe that would be a prudent choice considering what the meeting is about.”

    You resolve to see to this matter personally with H1256-J47 and Gabriel after breakfast. Until then, food!

    You arrive at the study, to find Invidia already there, waiting for you at your desk. As you take your seat at the desk, you look across from you and notice Invidia seems strangely focused. Normally, she's giddy about getting to leave her room and have time with you. Now, she seems pretty... normal. Is she getting used to being around you?

    Invidia looks over at you and gives you her crazed, predatory smile. Man, you really need to work on that with you note as you lock eyes with her. Don’t need her creeping out any future allies when you introduce your wife to th- WHAT THE FUCK. For a second you stand still, unsure of where that thought came from. Sure, you might like the girl, despite what your sense of self-preservation says, but that don’t meant she’s marriage material. Besides, married to her? Dear Emperor, think of the pale, emaciated children.

    You manage to hide your disgust at the thought though. Good thing Invidia had promised not to do any more mind probing since you two hooked up. Now that would be disastrous. Sitting down, you ask her what message she had for you. With the tone that she always used when on business, she replies, “Your brother has messaged you back sir.”

    Invidia pauses, before entering a trance. slowly, her mouthes opens, but the words and the voice behind them are not hers.

    “Dear older brother, I apologize if my previous letter left you with bad taste. I meant not to insinuate that you less than me. I have just realized how much of different people we are. You said it yourself, that you we’re someone who would rather be treading the stars when you left. Upon your exit, I was left with the title of heir to the Planetary Governorship. You left your friends, family, Virginia, and duty behind so you could be a space hero while I picked up the pieces. That is irrefutable fact. I took your advice to heart though, and survived. No, I strived. Father, he had much rather you had stayed, but I did as you said and sucked up to him. Eventually, he seemed to forget about you, as lamentable as it was,” he says, a bit emotionally.

    Judias’ voices pauses, as he master’s himself. Once more in control, he continues, “I picked up the pieces, and put them back together better than before. Being governor was what I was born for. Who knows what I would have been had you not left. I know that this was something I, and only I could handle. You said it yourself that you couldn’t handle it. Rather, you’re destiny was among the stars. I am grateful for you giving me my destiny, and when I eventually had heard that you would be returning, I knew I had to make it up to you. So I did what I could, and researched our family’s line, looking for favors. You could not be more surprised than I was that we had a Warrant of Trade, signed by Lord Sanguinius himself to our name. A little more prodding and probing revealed the Rhino that now sits on your ship.”

    “You are my brother, and I know that there are differences between the two of us. You just couldn’t handle being governor, and that’s part of the reason. I know I can. I don’t blame you, because we were all given different traits by Him on Terra. That’s why I got you the dynasty, because I love you and wanted you to be happy. You could never be so happy on Domus as you could be on the Igneus Aequitas. Too boring, too much responsibility. I understand, too each their own. So please, do not hate me for trying to make you happy. Now, Father and Virginia send their regards. I hope this finds you in good fortune. Love, Judias.”

    She nods, before memorizing the message to be sent later. Once this is done, the two of you go on to eat breakfast. Delicious really, you think of sending your compliments to the chef before wondering exactly who is it that cooks for you. For a moment you’re worried about poison, before realizing the seneschal had likely thought of it, and tested the food. That or he made it himself. You burst out laughing in a way unbecoming of a Rogue Trader at the thought of the Seneschal in an apron, cooking you breakfast while humming some little tune. Ividia gives you a puzzled look at your mirth, and you explain the mental image. Soon, even Invidia is laughing some cruel, twisted mockery of soft laughter, but it doesn’t matter. She’s happy, and as sick as it makes you to admit it, you’re happy that she is.

    The amusement lasts through out the breakfast, as the two of you continue your odd conversation on the seneschal’s cooking habits. Eventually the food vanishes, signaling the time for work has begun. Ever the polite host, you walk the girl to the doors of your study, where you wish her a good day and a hug before she goes. Despite her small, bony frame she seems to hug with the kind of strength you would only suspect Ripley to have. Quite unnatural, but then again nothing seems right about her. She holds on as if she let go something horrible would happen, only relenting when you move away. At last, the two of you say your parting words, and your astropath leaves for her job.

    Happy at her departure, you turn around to find all the dishes already gone, paperwork once more on your magnificent desk, and the seneschal waiting for you.

    You descend down into the bowls of the Igneus, preparing for your meeting with H1256-J47. What could they be scavenging parts for, you wonder as you walk up the great metal bulkheads that was required to keep the explorator’s many experiments safely segregated from the rest of ship. Emperor would know what would happen if the flying scorpions got loose.

    Still, the techpriests said they pretty much had everything they needed to repair the ship. This meant they either lied about having enough parts, or were working on some sort of side project. Hm, what could they be working on? Finally, your arrive at the entrance to H1256-J47’s sanctum.

    You walk over to the man-robot hybrid in red clothing, curious as to what he has cooked up this time. Shuddering at the thought of the bee gun breaking and the swarms getting loss again, you nervously scan the horizon of the room for animal sign of the damnable insects. Thankfully, there are pleasantly absent.

    Once you are within arm’s reach, H1256-J47 places an arm around your shoulders and pulls you into a conspiratorial huddle. His red eyes make contact with yours, locking up. In what seems like an attempt at a hushed tone, but failing badly because of his synthesized voice, he says, “I’ve finished the prototype.”

It seems the Seneschal is still slightly upset about you shaking up with the astropath, though he refuses to let it get in the way of work and acts completely professional. Unfortunately, this leads to an awkwardly silent trip on the Holy Elevatus, with only annoying music to listen to. Truly, there has never been a more trying period for your patience.

    A week later, you finally arrive at the unclaimed planet. While the trip was mostly uneventful, there seems to be a bit of distance between the flyboys and the Mechanicus now. At the very least, you don’t have to put up with it.

    Sitting in your magnificent chair on the bridge, you watch as the Igneus exits the warp. At last, you can sleep a little easier now that you’re out of the warp. Perhaps the damn night terrors will stop now. Before you, in the grand void of space you spy the unexplored planet, just waiting for you to claim it as your own. In four days, Captain Cetus will arrive with his ship, so you have until then to claim and pacify the world.

    The trip is fast and sudden, as one would expect from an orbital drop. While it might not be in the drop pods you always heard about marines using during your time in the Ordos, it is still pretty gut wrenching in its speed. At the very least, you’ve done drops into much more violent warzones before in your last job.

    Strapped into the co-pilot’s seat, you observe from the cockpit windows the world around you as you descend. The mountains pierce the sky, rising even higher than the clouds. It is beautiful to watch as you make your way through the peaks into the masked home of the human tribes. Outside, you note that it must be intensely cold up here, and how people can live in this terrain with so little oxygen. Then again, H1256-J47 said they were inside the cloud cover on the mountains. Insulation perhaps? Maybe the clouds kept higher amounts of oxygen, and as a result they could survive on the mountain peaks? Who knew; you certainly aren’t a trained doctor.

    Eventually after a fancy display of flight, zigzagging through mountain tops the pilot descends into the clouds as Ripley returns to the cock pit. Dressed in full military gear, he is ready for any possible attack, and the weapons at his side are displayed prominently. What was he doing back there? Probably giving them some resounding speech about serving the Emperor you conclude. You know, you’ve never heard him speak? Weird.

    Eventually, the drop craft finds a clear drop zone and lands. Outside you can barely see through the clouds, and the ground seems to be covered in now.

It contains an uplink to the satellites above that will be working as a GPS, and constantly updates to provide new information.

    The clouds obscure your way, and after several jokes by the men about using their “flashlights” to light the way you find yourself at the opening to a small cave leading into the mountain.

    The chimera's were thought too dangerous for the slick terrain, and small snowy passages. Thankfully, several sentinals were dropped with you.

    Calling up an honor guard of troopers, and Ripley, you bravely head into the cave entrance flanked by sentinels. The searchlights light up the way, while the satellites give your map an approximation of your location. Thankfully after a few run in with some local fauna, you have arrived at what seems to be a wooden gate. In front of it stands what appears to be two humans, each in some strange fun and scale armor. In their hands they wield spears of some sort, and though they’ve adopted what seems to be an aggressive stance, they seem to be rather afraid.

    Have we stumbled into a culture where hats do not denote authority?

    Take the hat off and point to it "Akimbuto?" then point to yourself "Akimbuto?" see what the kid does.

    Put the hat back on.

    Does the hat have an Aquila on it?

    It might be a corrupted term for the symbol (maybe from Akimbo?). See if your translator is getting anything intelligible from the conversations.

    I'm not cut out for first contact interpretation.

    Does someone else have a hat so we can see if it's "akimbuto" too, or only ours?

    That's about the best I can come up with.

    I figure either a hat is "akimbuto", and he likes the look of ours, or our hat is "akimbuto", an adjective which damn well better denote "absolutely astounding" in nativese.

    You restore your glorious hat to its rightful place atop your head, and call out, “People of this world, I come from beyond the stars, to bring you into the faith! Heed my words, for I am Rogue Trader Dolemite Deadlift, Lord Captain of the Igneus Aequitas, and my words are law! Bring me to your leaders and receive my blessings, or spurn me and suffer my wrath!”

    As you finish your words, Ripley and his men appear behind you from the cave, weapons at the ready. Shining great search lights, two sentinels follow the soldiers, towering over the crowd. Lines of your soldiers march in the plaza in unison, their boots stomping in unison, creating an aura of awe and fear in the assembled locals. Suddenly, the soldiers stand still, and part way for five people in cleric robes holding up banners of the Ecclesiarchy and of your Dynasty. The five walk up to you from behind and kneel, as Jet strides into the area with a most dignified look. Damn, does he know how to make an entrance.

    The child lifts up his hand for you to take, while pointing past the crowds and saying, “Kaisor! Kaisor!”

    You take his hand, and escorted through the market by your little guide, whose surprisingly strong hands refuse to let go of you. The crowd part, and the little boy just runs, forcing you into a light job to keep up with him. The men follow, and after about fifteen minutes of running your are brought to some large mansion.

    Its design reminds you of some of the buildings left from worlds conquered by the Ultramarines, but the decorations atop remind you of something much more feral. The pelts of many uncountable kinds of creatures serve as rugs into the grand building, while scenes of battle have been carved and painted onto the large pillars. Eventually, you are brought before a grand doorway, images depicting a grand battle engraved into the door.

    Peering inside, you are greeted with the image of a great chamber hall, where people come to eat and the “Kaisor” to preside. Three large tables take up most of the hall, each with multiple benches for a great many people to rest upon. The floor is a stony marble, as are walls. The ceiling is decorated in such a way that is depicts the sky above, with a painted sun at the center of it all. From the sun falls a grand chandelier, which lights up the room with either lights or candles, it is too far away to be sure. Against the wall, guards in what you can only guess to be ceremonial gear stand at attention every meter apart, not even turning their heads to look at your arrival.

    It is in the farthest back of the room, sitting in an ornamental throne drapped with gold and fur pelts there man resides. He is presumably their “Kaisor,” and he fits the image of what such a warrior based culture would have as their leader. The man seems young, possibly in his twenties, yet a small beard adorns his face. His form is not hidden, body only clothed by a pelt across his groin, sandles, and metal armor for his shins. His Skin is brown and several scars are visible, and an eyepatch covers where his left eye should be. Gold hair falls from his face, uncombed, and with an amused expression he watches you.

    Alright, let's back off from the anger that washes across us as we see this and realize that if he's not cowed by men from space coming down, especially considering the reactions of his people, he's either got nerves of absolute steel, or he knows something.

    Either way, this makes him someone to step carefully around. This doesn't look like some scared chief we can wave our guns at and bully around, and I'm positive there's more than meets the eye here.

    The man stands up straighter, the eyebrow above the patch rising in curiosity. He peers at you and your companions with a calculating gaze, instantly taking count of the situation. For a moment, nothing is said, and the room fills with tension. Suddenly, he rises from his chair, and stands up to proclaim, “I adh Kaisor Odr, snvflyk der tribe ged goethe, der muntain lightning cross.”

    He gazes down at you with a stern look, judging your every action. Slowly, a crooked grin forms, and he calls out to you and the men, “I ahd Kaisor Odn, desh fgh tribe goethe. This fgh mountain lightning cross, city der heavens. We men kindle der Star god. We der Star kindlered. Chosen highen hyrol der world tree. Kaisor o Midgand!” The Kaisor’s voice fills the hall, and with his hands makes sweeping motions, obviously meant to convey the point. The guards stand straighter at his words, and for a moment you find yourself cowed by his booming voice, but do not show it.

    You statement has him confounded, and his raised arms lower to his side. Given you a calculating look once more, the Kaisor begins to think. After a minute of intense thinking and awkward silence, the man steps away from his throne and begins to walk towards you.

    The Kaisor stops just short of where you stand, refusing to give ground. Kaisor Odr stands there and just stair at you, looking you up and down, judging every little thing about you. Looking at your shoes, he says gleefing, your pants nfiblr, your coat and shirt talckit. When he looks at your face the two of you lock eyes, and there is an intense stairing contest. Neither is willing ot look away, unwilling to appear weak. This goes on for minutes, until the Kaisor smirks, looks at your hat and says, “Akimbuto.”

    You raise your left and gesture the for the gifts. From behind you, Jet and Ripley arrive, each holding onto something. In Jet’s hand is a copy of the Legio Divinatus, which he holds out for the Kaisor to grasp, while Ripley presents the man with an ornately designed sword, with the Aquila engraved into the pommel. He looks over the two offerings, before grasping onto the sword, and checking out its balance. Slashing the air several times, he is pleased at its masterful craft, and says, “Sragh tribute. I ahd enjoyed.”
