    This thread is a continuation of /tg/'s Warhammer 50k: Age of Exodus setting.


    In the grim darkness of the 51st Millennium, there is only the Great Ship.
    The Ship is All.
    The Ship moves.

    Posted this just b4 last thread ended, wanted some feedback.

    Since humanity is gathered so close, the collected spiritual essence has changed something in the Emperor's physiology. The EKG is registering faint beats, barely more than artifacts, and through the impossibly weathered and thin skin, his blood is turning to the blue-white shade of the soul.

    One day, a Custodes thinks he sees a twitch, but dismisses it while cleaning the holy fire alarm.

    The Emperor bides his time as he always had, waiting for his body to adapt to the new source of life.

    Basically, the Emperor's body is changing to run off of liquid soul, and sufficient human sacrifice will revive him entirely. He'll be a true God, feasting on souls to exist, but he'll still be human, giving him no end of moral dilemma.

    Okay, time for a RECAP

    The Emperor briefly woke up sometime in the 42nd Millennium to issue one command: the building of the greatest ship ever to exist.

    The Great Ship was to incorporate the entire material and human wealth of the Imperium into a single vessel of astronomic proportions.

    The Ship took 9,000 years to build, during which time every Imperial world and holding was utterly strip-mined to provide the raw materials for what would become Mankind's greatest achievement.

    It is the ONLY ship anon. All others that venture nearby crash into the ship due to GRIMDARK gravity well.

    The Ship is over one AU in length: that's almost 100 million miles. It's powered by a dozen captive stars and generates a gravitational field rivaling that of a black hole.

    The entire population of the Imperium of Man was indentured in the construction and crewing of the Great Ship. Upon its completion, the Imperium was no more: now, in its place, the ISS Imperium would sail the stars.

    So what are the largest threads to the Ship?
    It seems like we've decided on Necrons, Orks and Nids, in that order-- all of them are inside the Ship and thus capable of doing massive damage. Since they've infiltrated the AdMech, the Necrons are the most sinister of all three races.
    Chaos has been reduced to a nightmare that swarms outside the Ship, but remains pretty much kept at bay by the power of the Emperor's light. Heretics and Chaos Space Marines are more of a disturbance than an actual life-threatening terror.
    Dark/Neo-Eldar pirates continue to harass the Crew, as do renegade humans, rogue mutants (there would be a LOT), and traitorous Eldar, Tau, Kroot and other beneficiaries of the Captain's hospitality.

    Can we think of any other major threats to the Great Voyage?

    We, the Ship's Eyes, see you, child. We, the Ship's ears, hear your plea. Our network, our machine spirits, are one with the God-Captain... his wisdom guides all.

    You are chosen. Your quest is as follows.

    1. Blown by the unceasing wind of Ventilator 423957 XA, sail thou across the bilge-sea for a year and a day, ever into the west, and the blue light of plasmalamp Delta Porphyrion. Fear not thirst and starvation, for the bilge-nomads will aid you.

    2. Trek thou northwest across the rust-flake desert until you reach the oasis Mallan. It's people have for generations forgotten the Truth. Tell them of the God-Captain, the Ship, and the Voyage. There is in their neglected temple a sealed chest. Recite the Litany of the Task, and it will open. Retrieve the holy Fuse.

    3. Venture North. The years will age you. Be stalwart in your duty, bear your holy task and burden. Through the passage of Samphael you will go, to the Dark Lands.

    4. For two centuries, since their Lamp failed them, the Dark Lands have languished, the people starving and blind. They feed on fungus, and the refuse that washes from the worlddecks above. They click, with their tongues, and by the echoes know their surroundings. They fight the greenskins, armed only with spears and knives. There in the dark, they make beautiful sculptures, and they sing hymns in praise of the God-Captian, who will bring them Light. They no longer know what light is.

    5. Lead them in crusade against the greenskins. Seize the holy maintenance-temple of Sigma-Sigma-Epsilon from their heathen clutches. Install thou, in the hollow beneath the altar, the holy Fuse. Repair the plasma-lamp. Bring the faithful the God-Captain's light.

    6. Receive canonization. Await further instructions.

    Easy shit. We get near them, and they splatter against our windshield. Or, more likely, get sucked into the matter ports and get turned into usable biomass for cloning/food. And on the topic of added mass:


    The ship is constantly being repaired and over-repaired by the tech-priests. They order too much stuff, as they traditionally do- and sometimes more than enough arrives. . . Techpriests with a surplus of materials, folks. That's a truly horrifying thought.

    And the ship? The ship is alive, being linked to the God-Emperor of Mankind directly. He IS the ship, and is both the Omnissiah-literally- and the master of the Void Dragon. The ship builds itself. Where humans haven't been in centuries, where life hasn't ever existed, perhaps- the ship grows. . .

    The Ship has a giant gravitational ramscoop up front that gathers all the mass in The Ship's path and feeds it to a fusion reactor.

    A fusion reactor larger than most stars, but this one doesn't create energy. It's far more complex and subtle. It's purpose is to transmute the stream of particles sucked through the fire at the maw of the scoop into all the raw elements needed by the ship.

    The bad news is that that entire Section of Bilge Deck 1643 was jettisoned into space twelve years ago, due to a nearly complete infestation of fork-tongued bloodworms.

    The only reason we can communicate at all is that even after all this time, that Section still hasn't cleared the length of the Ship. We estimate that it will go beyond sensor range in approximately twenty eight more years.

    Its not terribly surprising you didn't know, there were several hives within that never received word.

    Death by bloodworms is not pretty. I suggest facing them head on if you see them first. That way you die a nearly painless death.

    Well, that's a lie. But you will die sooner.

    I mean, with the Emperor at the helm, and with his massive intellect and willpower and the amount of wards he personally wrote in the ship, and the ones his servant put in...it makes sense that chaos is like an insect problem, rather than the horrific shit it is in 40k.

    Imperium made craft worlds could be like frigates serving as an auxiliary fleet, docking with the ship once every 50-100 years in order to recharge from the ship's dyson spheres.

    I think there should be a HUGE number of ships in the surrounding fleet, serving innumerable purposes. Whole planets were used in construction for the fleet as well. Even with this, the grand armada is >>.1% the size of the great ship.

    Not that guy who posted, but you're missing the point.

    This is more than just a fucking badass ship. It's a fucking badass CONCEPT, an IDEA, and one that is so vast and ever-changing that you should not attempt to define it in any other way other than the sheer scale of it. It is not to be defined, but to be capable of striking awe in the hearts of nerds everywhere. Giving it a solid shape would take from that.

    Uh, guys? Imagine the Sisters of Battle. Within 1 AU of the Emperor, their faith powers must be off the wall. And their Saints? Forgetaboutit, they're walking demigods.

    As for keeping chaos OUT and the Emps power AMPED?

    1) The Emps is inside hooked up to the ship. The Emps is his own Astronomicon, Gellar Field, calms the warp, and gives powers to his faithful like he's a chaos god- which he now is.
    2) Emps made the Void-Dragon his bitch and harnessed his power. Again.
    3) There are necrons welded into the hull. Lulz anti-warp technology.
    4) The Deceiver is tooling around somewhere inside the ship- and completely fucking chaos over wherever he goes, being a C'tan and chaos hates C'tan and Necrons and stuff. Just as Planned on the part of Emps? Maybe.
    5) All of humanity- ALL OF IT- all 2.5 octillion of them if I recall correctly, are on that ship, boosting the Emps power nigh-infinitely over and over again, because of their renewed faith in being both so close to him and seeing what his will can do.

    Chaos can't do shit, folks. The only thing doling out warp powers inside that ship is the Big E.

    The gravity control allows for regions where they can stay. This ship isn't a black hole, though it is massive, it is not a singularity, it's not dense enough. Light can escape from it. Also, all this handwavium anti gravity helps a shit ton.

    Ships are needed for repair and growth of the outer hull, there is no other way to function.

    However, any ship that gets too close without the will of the god captain, is doomed with but a thought.

    A while back, I listened to an old sci-fi audiobook from way back, and it was all about these people that live in a giant ship, believing that it was the whole universe. Heretics who believed otherwise were killed or fled to the upper decks, which is also where the crew that had mutated lived. Heretics, criminals and the dead were fed into the furnace, where their souls would be recycled.

    The main character murdered some wise-woman/fortune teller for a reason I forget, and had to flee to the upper decks, where he was almost killed by a mutant (Who hate the pure-bloods with a passion) but the mutant's leader takes him in, and opens the bridge viewport to reveal the space outside. Turns out he's researching the books up in the upper decks and trying to build a crew to pilot the deck. In the end, the pure-bloods mount an expedition to kill muties/kill him and they murder the leader, the only man with the knowledge on how to pilot the ship and read the books.

    I can't remember too much offhand, but take any campaign inspiration from that as you will.

    This ship must be going somewhere. The Emperor, in his sleep, must have seen something so terrifying, so big, so dire, that he ordered all of the Imperium to uproot and move. The grand ship now hurtles towards it are immeasurable speed, accelerating faster and faster through the warp with each year. Halfway through the unfathomable reaches of space, the ship will shift and begin to decelerate. This day is known to the faithful as "demi-itineris," and it shall signify the coming of the end.

    I'm having fun seeing the back and forth between the necrons and Emps powering up yet more.

    The Deceiver's inside, tooling about, fucking with the AdMech because it's fun. In my mind, the Emps may have very well manipulated him into coming here because all the life energy in the galaxy is now HERE- and yet its presence further denies chaos entry. What a web we weave, Emps. Replacing the evil of the warp with the C'tan. . .

    Oh, and I laughed for a minute straight the first time I imagined an AdMech bent over a reading, his oculars bugging out over a console that says necron-sized holes in the armor, plating, floors, walls, and ceilings of the ship. Like cutouts, really. And mass is increasing too rapidly in certain areas, before teleporting off to other areas. . . And techpriests, touched by the Deceiver, have somehow managed to smuggle onto the ship Tomb World reconstruction chambers, which heal the necron bodies. And there's outrageous numbers of necrons on the ship now-

    Only the ship's so big, and there's so many humans, a human can go their entire life without hearing even a single tale of a man made of metal.

The few people he had met were either indifferent to him or were raiders. The wound in Anons shoulder was beginning to fester and his binded, dislocated fingers throbbed. The lone raider Anon had killed for water had been tough, but a plastic shard into the neck had eventually slain the raider.

    Let us ponder the Mysteries.

    What is the God-Captain?
    What is the Omnissiah?
    What is the Imperium?
    What are we, the people?
    What is the Ship?

    The God-Captain is neurally networked to the trillion trillion cogitators and servitors that permeate the length and breadth of the ship. One with the machine spirits, He is the Omnissiah. They are the mind and soul, and the body is the very decking beneath our feet. He is the Ship.

    We, the masses of humanity, souls more numerous than the fabled stars, are the Imperium. And the Imperium is the Ship.

    And so, the God-Captain, the Omnissiah, the people, and the Imperium are one, and are the Ship.

    The Ship is all.

    The ship moves.

It would be cooler if they still recognized the God Emperor of the Ship as such, but they held the Machine Spirit God or whatever on an equal level, and recognized it as a distinct entity. So it would be more that they are torn between the two, rather than actively trying to kill the emperor and take over the ship. Of course, this is still heresy.

    Make it like this: Emps has actually died after the ship left port. All hope was lost, but at the same time a young psyker rose from among the populace, and started preaching novel ideas, about progress and peace. Persecution follows, and he's caught and sacrificed to the corpse of Emps in a horribly gruesome way. It turns out he was emprah incarnate, trying to steer his people back into the light. So they killed him and imprisoned him again in his carcass to steer the Ship.

    They could see things that way I guess... but they'd be wrong, according to established 50k canon.

    Every meter of ship is filled with vast databanks, cogiators, and servitors, all of which are linked directly to the Emperor's psychic will-- that's how He steers the ship. Therefore, the Emperor is in fact the literal Machine-Spirit/Omnissiah of the ISS Imperium: He is the "spirit" of the ship, its central processing unit or mainframe, so to speak.
    So a tech-faction that tried to maintain the old separation of Emperor and Omnissiah would be not only heretical but also very misled.

    You notice a shadow over top you. Rapidly growing darker and smaller, it plummets through the sky, then, with a small "ting!" something bounces off your head. It is a servo-skull. With a note and a full canister of water, four times the size of the skull, which struggles to hover next to you. The note reads:

    "Five days. Do not despair. The Ship has not abandoned you.

    The Ship is All.
    The Ship Moves."

    A new shadow grows, darkens, and you look up. A flock of Servo-skulls flutter about above you, providing shade in the heat of the blistering plasma-nova above. It is a shifting cloud, one or two occassionally darting down to fly off miles away. After a brief flash of las-light or two, sometimes return to the swarm- if not, larger packs fly off, and more flashes are seen. These skulls do return. After you sit briefly, your personal servo-skull nudges you, and you look at it, which flies upward, drawing your attention to the cloud. It's in the shape of an arrow pointing towards an edge of the horizon.

    "Thank the God-Captain..." Anon mutters. His voice cracks before any more can be said.
    *takes a swig of tinny water*
    *trudges under the arrow shaped cloud*
    As Anon walks bodies of raiders become apparent through the blistering haze. Odd little piles off bone and scrap indicate the demise of a skull. Anon wonders for the umpteenth time to himself why he hasn't given up yet. As a child he had been a weak stripling, as an adolescent he had been meek and cowardly. This was by far the most desolate place he had been and yet still he walked. The pain barely registered above the lethargy he now felt. But he had faith. Faith that the Ship would not abandon him, faith that the fate awaiting him could not be worse than starving in a bilge-deck control room.

    The Motion of the Ship is a theological concept far beyond your simple understanding.

    Do not question. Do not think. Only toil, and maintain, and believe.

    The Ship is all.

    That is a good question, my child.

    A very, very good question.

    The answer, you'll find, is something the Imperial Priests never wanted to you to know.

    I alone can offer you that knowledge...... But are you strong enough to seize it? For knowledge is power....

    The oupost of Mallan looms out of the dust. Anon gazes upon dwellings held together with little more than twine and crossed fingers. Several dozen people inhabit the place but most appear to be despondent and aimless. Folk merely sit outside their dwellings as if awaiting doom itself.

    /tg/ 50k:
    A custom setting, leaving the canon behind and spanning pages 1-10 of 4chans' waning neckbeard. Within the myriad threads, the Great Exodus sets course and begins its launch, traversing the dark Warp of "thin your paint" spamming and 4e trolling.

    At the helm, humanity looks to the spirit of /tg/, ever dormant but in one brief spark--which briefly wrested itself to consciousness from it's aged throne amid half-sentient namefags. The words were thus:

    We shall move.

    Entire boards were stripped of writefags, toiling ceaselessly for an internet millenia, building a new vessel which would fulfill the newly-conscripted /tg/'s great, barren neck. The manufactoriums of suptg and 1d4chan providing the framework, our efforts began to embody the greatest work of an era's decline.
    From the twilight embers of the fantastic, the steampunk, and the far-flung future, a swath of homebrew creations were harnessed, distilled, and now light the unyielding drives of myriad engines. To where they launch the immense colony-ship, only the immortal spirit of /tg/ knows.

    As /v/irgins pressed from all sides, summoning heresy and abomination from the psychic link shared by glorious traditional gaming and the heretical insurgence of videogames, still we built humanity's vessel. 'Ere the coming death of our beloved solidarity as the /b/ horde redoubled their insatiable warlust, we finished the flagship of our Exodus.

    The Eye of /v/ knows only the wake of our derailment threads--their denizens turning against fellow rivals in failed DoW2 trolling and WoW stat queries. We tend the machine of our devices, as the ever-thrumming glow of engines press our remaining populace into the dark night. Where it leads, only the God-Emperor knows.

    And thus we sail
    fa/tg/uys and ca/tg/irls
    amongst the stars.

    As Lost Anon, I urge anon to ARCHIVE this thread. Myself and the valiant writefag anons have toiled but alas, our strength is spent. I bow to the OP's and the /tg/ anons who have contributed.

    Valiant anon, your sacrifice was not without purpose.

    Let many a vote be cast this day, and let many anons sleep well tonight, knowing their work has not been in vain.
    We have done a great thing here, my brothers.
    Now let us sail on forevermore.

    I think all the 50k anons have gone to bed by now.

    One last little bump to thank everyone who participated in this awesome project.

    I've lost all hope in GW if they don't pick up on this. It would be amazing to see the Great Exodus hinted at in future fluff - maybe as an obscure AdMech prophecy or something.

    There's this strange talk of a prophecy in an admech cult, something about a giant ship made up of the Imperium.

    Sounds silly, but just to be safe kill them all.

    Inquisitor out.

    Haven't read through all of this...but I imagine that Chaos would be nil outside of the ship. Slaanesh would be the unmistaking dominant Chaos entity, and the other three would do what they can to overthrow it at whatever means necessary.

    Maybe a few Eldar refugees on board, or xenos hiding. A couple of genestealer cults.

    There'd definitely be some action outside of the ship. Maybe a reverse Eldar thing where you have a few outcast human ships or fringeworld planets and rogue traders still.
    >> Anonymous 01/25/10(Mon)07:40 No.7769373
    So...Tau and minor races are second class citizens, maybe some autonomy in some fringe areas. Eldar are kinda fucking stuck here, considering that Slaanesh is now much bigger and would rape any Eldar that dare leave the ship,
