    Drone chitters affectionately in your arms as the Lady's multitudinous appendages retract into the darkness, leaving you alone in a pool of wan, green light with the scarab. If your mistress' command to destroy the loyal construct was a test, you can only presume that you've passed by dint of your disobedience.

    You are Xeno, sole survivor of the science vessel Su'T'ji and erstwhile necron warrior; a pawn of the incomprehensibly ancient being known as the Lady of Infinite Abyss. The reasons for your selection are unknown, clouded by an impenetrable amnesia that has deprived you of your former life as a tau. All you know is the horror of a god-war between your would-be Lady and her supposed usurper, the Dusk of Uncountable Suns.

    You've served it well, setting back the Dusk's plan to return with the stricken science vessel to the tomb world from which they were excavated, claiming the ancient weapons and incalculable armies therein for its own nefarious purpose. Armed with little more than your wits and the 'beauty' granted you by the Lady, you sabotaged the phase drive under construction in the Su'T'ji's engineering bay and jetisoned the entire assemblage into space.

    You now stand ready for your next task as the shadowscape around you gives way to the stark lines of an emerald grid, the world around you fracturing, crumbling like a crystal matrix undone to reveal a plain store room back aboard the Su'T'ji. Your sense of telemetry returns and you realize that you have been returned to deck 5, the data center from which the Lady orchestrates your actions.

    'I am taken of a whim, insect,' the necron intones, its voice reverberating around the storage bay as if from everywhere at once. 'A great many of my treasures have been pillaged from my tomb by your bothersome archeologists. You will go to bulk storage on deck three and retrieve them for me. Do me this service and I shall grant you my favor. Fail me and earn my wrath.'

    What do?

    I don't even take part in quests, but no. Quests are more /tg/ related than Mass Effect threads, but we get those every day. Quests are more /tg/ related than drawthreads, but few complain about those. They're more related than monstergirls and furries but we can't get those to leave even with word of moot. And while they're vaguely similar to avatarfagging threads, at least they're not half as shitty.

    You cast a petulant glance around the room, but if the Lady was ever really here - more likely she initiated a remote connection, Drone helpfully suggests - she's gone now. Lacking a suitable target for your discontent you instead give the scarab another affectionate squeeze and place it on your shoulder, allowing it to scamper down between your shoulders and click into place on your spinal dock.

    The chamber is bare save for a single device, the medallion-like core of a necron warrior's breastplate. It sits in a cobbled-together receptacle, conduits running from the device beneath the deckplates and into the ship's power systems.

    Drone informs you that this is a combination of power generator and phase module, part of what allows necron warriors to be teleported back to their tombs when they suffer catastrophic damage. It appears to have been modified to allow the Lady to pluck you from the engineering deck before you were flushed out into space along with the Dusk's phase drive.

    You approach the pedestal, really more a twining helix of power conduits and girders, and examine the medallion. It's longer than it looks, extending into a socket several inches deep at the receptacle's apex - obviously, it's not meant to be worn as an accessory. With a clatter of mandibles, Drone helpfully overlays vital specifications of the device over your field of vision, allowing you to perceive the artifact as if it were floating before you.

    You feel a suspicion that this may be another test - do you take the module and condemn yourself to further loss of your tau identity, or do you leave it and carry on without the significant power and advantage it represents?

    leave it, its obviously important if its connected to all those large cables and probably not worth risking more necronizaiton at this point, still that husk of a necron sitting in the corner over there could serve us with its resources. Salvage it then head out looking for a terminal or a way to find the quickest and safest path to our goal

    Your hand hovers over the device, but in the end you decide against taking it. You're in no mood for the Lady's games - besides, Drone is glad to inform you that if you really wanted a power core, you could manufacture your own fairly easily!

    You move with purpose, departing the store room and travelling through the deserted data stacks towards the familiar lift shaft when suddenly something strikes you as deeply wrong. You stop, falling completely silent - even your heartbeat stills, modulated by the structure of your phylactery, as does the whisper of your breath.

    Roll 1d100.

    The attack comes from an unexpected quarter, knocking you flat on your face with the force of a mass driver! You roll with the momentum, flipping up and over onto your hooves, turned to face your assailant - but there's no sign of your attacker, as if it vanished into thin air!

    Your aim is true as the incorporeal fiend crashes through a power node, its death-rattle like the screech of rent metal. Lights flicker out across the deck as the surge courses through it, illuminating its rib-like torso with crackling arcs of electricity.

    It falls to the ground in a sparking heap, limp and lifeless. You can feel its processes ending abruptly, shutting down one after another in a cascade of operational faults.

    Drone scampers off your back and alights upon the ruined wraith, transmitting back a stream of vital information from the incapacitated necron. Of course, it's merely disabled - not truly destroyed, at least not until you've had the opportunity to consume its necrodermis.

    A thought occurs to you as you kneel over your defeated foe; why? You haven't stopped to consider the implications of your actions, but it seems like every time you consume a foe, you become more like them. Is that something you really want?

    A consensus of three or more is required.

    3. Combine Tau and Necron tech to create a battleship.

    New programs force you to remain still as the foundry does its work, dextrous armatures rebuilding Drone from the ground up. You feel a greater degree of awareness this time, perceiving the actions of your fabricators as if you were building something with your own hands. A million designs race through your head and you select elements from each that best suit your needs, crafting a companion that is uniquely yours.

    Drone, you are beginning to realize, isn't just the scarab. It's the extension of yourself that it represents, a composite of your best and most basic characteristics. What began its existence as a simple technical drone is now so much more, a reflection of yourself in every way.

    It chirps happily as you finish your work, wriggling free from beneath your wings as its reborn for the second time.

It hovers in the air before you, flexing its wings and mandibles and curling its abdomen below its body - a pronged barb protruding from the end.

    Drone settles into your arms, happy for your attention but also somewhat concerned for your lack of control over your burgeoning abilities. It suggests that your reluctance to embrace your identity as a necron may be preventing you from controlling the process of becoming one.

    Perhaps if you were more accepting of your role, you could ascend more gracefully? Drone apologetically admits that it doesn't have access to much information on the process of ascension - generally speaking, they aren't making new royalty.

    Drone admits that its analysis is imperfect, but it's somewhat more prone to flights of fancy since merging with you. There are certain psychological barriers that must be overcome in order for you to realize your potential, and if you expect to successfully challenge the Lady of Infinite Abyss - Drone is a part of you, remember, so there can be no secrets between you - you will need to ascend to lordhood.

    Given your current rate of conversion, you will become more than a match for the Lady before the Su'T'ji can reach its tomb via conventional drive. There's still the matter of the Dusk, of course, but there is a reasonable margin of victory provided that you are able to achieve bronze level peerage.

    I just got a mental image of Xeno's tomb being opened by a bunch of Tau researchers looking for Necron weapons, with her huddled in a corner saying "Please don't take these items."

    Noh-Xeno is d'awwww.

    I can picture it now:
    Guardsmen confused about why more than half of the cloud of gun drones descending on them look more like metal bees. The swarm parts slightly, revealing a humanoid figure's advance. As they ineffectually start firing at the target, a raspy but feminine voice intones:
    "Whether in life or in death you SHALL serve the Greater Good. Your only choice is whether you leave here with them...or with me."
    When Tau transports appear through the swarm most of the Guardsmen throw down their lasguns and run toward them...while trying to ignore the screams of those who remained loyal.

    Xeno was an Earth Caste engineer, right? And now she's basically a Scarab factory. Is anybody else seeing the creation angle going on? I bet that she winds up creating all sorts of unbelievable wonders on her tomb world of choice.

    Remember guys, we still should keep cyber splicing to a minimum.
    It's unpredictable and dangerous

    Drone notices your struggle to remember the details of your former life, obscured as it is by the haze of amnesia that's hung over you since your awakening in the stasis vault. It chirps plaintively, nuzzling you in a supportive gesture. While not the emotional response you were hoping for, you feel a warm sense of affection for the drone. A smile tugs at the corners of your mouth and you realize that you're still you, regardless of how you may have changed.

    You glance about the data center. The Lady's presence seems to be absent, withdrawn from this place as if it were only transient, but a faint aura of its passing can still be perceived. You're taken aback by your recognition of it, wondering for a moment if your eyes have been replaced by the clicking, whirring optics of the necrons.

    You follow the trail of data as Drone buzzes along overhead, covering the approaches with its new weapon. Your own hands ache to wield one, but you suspect that dwelling too heavily on the subject might inspire your nanites to rebuild them to suit the desire. You may be coming to terms with your metamorphosis, but you haven't quite decided to embrace it just yet.

    The datatrail seems to lead to a central processing unit tying all the subprocessors together. The Lady was here, you can feel it.

    You press your hands to the data stack, feeling the ebb and flow of information within. It's almost as if you're being drawn in...

    Drone clatters a warning; the dataspace is the Lady's domain and you aren't ready to face it there. Few lords are, and fewer still stand a chance of besting it.
