    Sweat pours from your body as you jolt upright from what qualifies as sleep for you. Your skin crawls as the presence of the Warp bleeds around you, slowly settling as your mind regains focus upon your powers. The dreams never cease, horrific daemons and beasts, always trying to find a way through you to the material world.

    The Sanctioning helped none of it.

    You hold your head your hands, gently massaging your throbbing temples. The cold, stale air of the hold is the only comfort you find, aside from the small cell that serves as your quarters. At least being Void Born has its benefits, especially when you're constantly re-attached to various Imperial Guard regiments. The lurch of the ship exiting the warp gives you a moment of solace as the roaring tempest within your mind settles to a calming storm.


    The bulkhead of the door opens as a pair of naval ratings step in, followed by your new CO, Lieutenant Mallear. You had only met him briefly upon your arrival to the transport ship. Lt. Mallear is in command of the Sentinel 23rd Infantry Platoon. You've been assigned as an advisor.

    "I hope you're up for service, eh... What was your name again?"

    "Ted will suffice." You say, shielding your eyes as the lights flare to life within your room.

    Lt. Mallear hands you a set of flak armour and a laspistol with holster. "You'll be coming with us to the surface. We drop in 30."

    The ratings wait for Mallear to leave the room before leaving and shutting the bulkhead.

    You stand and stretch, falling into a small slouch as you start to equip the wargear and holster the pistol. Your Force Staff hangs over your bed. The bones of your hand begin to pop and crack as they flex from atrophy. The head flickers with energy as your presence powers the psychic-attuned weapon.

    Your belongings are in a simple satchel bag already. It hangs from your side as you exit your quarters and move to the hangar. You slip your momento into the pocket of your fatigues, rolling the pair of dice between your fingers to calm your nerves, feeling your lips twich with the Litany of Protection as you prepare for departure.

    The regiment stands ready, some already being filed into the landers. You take your place next to Lt. Mallear.

    "Excellent, Ted. You're quite prompt. That'll keep you alive longer." He says, fixing his combead within his ear. A shiver runs down your spine as you hear the dull clang of heavy boots, the singe of a piercing glare digging into the back of your head. You turn slowly to confirm your suspicion, a Commissar standing at the ready behind you.

    "This is Commissar Krent. He will be overseeing you, while you assist."

    You're ushered onto the command lander quickly after introductions, and dropped to the surface of Newerth, a newly acquired Paradise World. You have high hopes for an easy mission with a low encounter potential...

    The lander settles down on the pad with no problems as Mallear's squad, you included, disembark to the waiting Chimera. The vehicle rattles off with the other eight, heading for the forward base. It seems strange to you why a regiment would be placed onto a Paradise World with no current conflicts. You rest in your seat, trying to calm your nerves.

    It doesn't last long before you hear the screech of the Warp within your mind.

    "YEEAAAAARRGGGHHH!" You scream out, clutching your skull as you tumble forward. You hear a heavy thumb click off the safety of a Bolt Pistol, immediately feeling the Commissar's finger preparing to squeeze the trigger.

    Your mind swims with the coming storm of a flood of Chaos, beings you can only make out in silhouette, forms of horrific daemons and chaos entities becoming more and more visible.

    "As per our conditioned regulations, and Psyker found wanting or found uncontrolling of their ability is subject to release of their duty. May the Emperor have mercy upon your troubled soul..." Says the Commissar.

    "This world is no paradise, it is filled with Daemons! We must exterminate them, and you'll need my help."

    "What? Heresy and taint, Psyker." Says the Commissar.

    "No, Commissar! This is why he was brought here!" Mallear interjects. He leans in to Krent, whispering to him. The Commissar's grip tightens on the bolt pistol as he grudgingly lowers it.

    Another guardsman in the Chimera kneels next to you. "What did you see, Psyker?" Oh. It's a woman. "An elaborate explanation is in order."

    You stammer through your words as you detail the perception of daemons and chaos forces.

    "Lt. Mallear, clearly this psyker is mad. This world was taken from simple insurgent forces and rebellious colonists." says the Commissar, all to eager to test his bolt pistol.

    "As hard as it might be, you must accept the ruling, Commissar. He stays for now." says the woman kneeling beside you. She helps you back to your seat, moving to the empty seat beside you and trying to keep you in a stable seated position. Your conditioning takes over, Litanies streaming quietly from your lips, slowly calming you.

    The Chimera grinds to a halt at the forward base.

    "I will inspect the troops, then, Lt. Do not hesitate, however." The Commissar sniffs you. "He reeks of taint." Scowling, Krent leaves for the parade grounds. You feel sorry for the poor guardsman about to be shot.

    "Psyker Ted, Guardsman Vedra will escort you to your quarters. I will send for you if and when you're needed. Until then, I must get to our vox station." Lt. Mallear departs the vehicle.

    "Are you all set... Ted, was it?" She asks, readying her kit and standing.

    "Yes, yes I think I'll be fine now. The presence was overwhelming at first, I didn't expect it. I've got it under control now."

    You gather your pack and stand, using your staff for support. She keeps a moderately slow pace to let you follow comfortably as you finish shaking off the jitters.

    "Do you know anything of the situation on this world?" you ask, moving up to walk beside her.

    "Over here." She says, gesturing to a bunker nearby. She opens the door for you and follows you inside.

    You look around the bunker, which is more of an extended armory than a living quarters. A hand grips your mouth from behind.


    "Shut up and be quiet." She says, pulling you to a nearby chair. You feel the barrel of a laspistol at your back.

She reaches into her breast pocket and removes a small dataslate. "Take this." She says, offering it to you.

    At this point, I'll switch from the long-winded posting to shorter. With the exposition done, we can have fun now.

    You consciously begin reciting Litanies for protection and guidance as she leaves, the words on the dataslate moderately unsettling. You exit the bunker from the rear, seeing another door on the left to what looks to be a barracks.

    >Let's go into our quarters. Look for food/equipment, if there is any. If not, read a book and get lots of sleep. We'll need to be well rested if we're on Inquisitorial duty.

    You enter the barracks. There is another door with a shutter in the front. You find a full Guardsman's Field kit (Lasgun, Combat Knife, Flak Armour, 1 Frag Grenade, 1 Krak Grenade, 1 Guardsman's Uplifting Primer). There is also a rather comfortable cot.

    Next time we meet an inquisitorial agent, ask about anti-daemonic runes that we can carve into our bones. When asked where we learned about this, mention that we heard the commissar muttering about grey soldiers or something.

    We have no force weapon, only a staff. We are not a Primaris Psyker, to my knowledge.

    Even so, modification of our kit like that will probably get us punished. Departmento Munitorum pricks are like that.

    You're familiar with a Lasgun, but you've not focused on specific practice with one.

    You take the lasgun.

    >The mess hall is empty, aside from the kitchen staff.
    You acquire recaff. You're a bit more twitchy than normal from the caffeine stimulant.

    >The firing range is full. Soldiers are busy drilling, and from your state, the officer overseeing the range removes your lasgun from your possession.

    You have lost your lasgun for the time being.

    You're able to get a better view of the rest of the base. You recognize the barracks where you reside, the mess hall, a comms building, garage, and small shrine area.

    Ask the range officer when is a good time for us to come back.

    Go to the shrine until then. We may be a horrible mutant psyker, but we're a FAITHFUL horrible mutant psyker.

    we should take a walk around the base and casually observe everyone's behaviour.

    find out who we can trust and who is likely to shoot us for being a psyker

    >Test Passed

    You calmly attempt to extend your consciousness through the local area of the warp, seeking other beacons of power. There appear to be no other Psykers on the base.

    >To the shrine

    You enter the shrine, bowing your head before the brilliant image of His Divine Majesty, finding a seat at a bench, calming moderately in the presence of the holy figure. You begin praying once again.

    You don't notice the preacher walk up to you until he taps your shoulder.

    "Your devotion will reward you, Psyker. He guides those who follow. Be not afraid of His embrace, as you shall serve in life and death..." He says, starting to prattle on.

    Be polite to the preacher. Thank him, and wish him well.

    Keep praying for another half-hour or so, then head back to the range to see if it's cleared out yet.

    You're an attached Sanctioned Psyker, therefore get the pimp 4e codex Force Weapon option.

    Bad justification, but valid nonetheless.

    nice. So its standard issue. No wonder the comissars are so twitchy around us. You can cut open a leman russ with one of those things.

    You can consult the Emperor's Tarot, if that's what you mean.

    >Thank preacher

    "I deserve no thanks, Psyker. I merely preach His word..." *blathers on for the rest of the time you spend in the shrine*

    >30 minutes pass

    The range is still being used.

    The mess hall remains empty as you get a small meal of nutripaste, ration bars, and water.

    Eat food.

    Walk back to our quarters. Whistle a catchy tune, if we know any. Consult Emperor's Tarot.

    Check back with the range after an hour of this. We want our bloody lasgun back, dammit.

    we should act like a normal guardsman, join a gambling game then proceed to wipe the floor with them by using our precognition and sense thoughts.

    should be good practice, plus it will teach them not to risk what the emperor gave them

    (may even get a new lasgun out of it too)

    >Whistle catchy tune

    You start whistling "A Glorious Dawn" while walking back. You calm down more. You are no longer jittering from caffeine.

    >Consult the Emperor's Tarot

    Sitting down in your quarters, you focus yourself and seek the Astronomican within the Warp. Finding your link, you pull cards from your deck.

    All three are regular draws. (Not inverted.)

    >Daemon (Major Arcana)
    >Star (Major Arcana)
    >Knight (of Mandatio)

    You feel your body tense as you begin attempting to interpret the Tarot. Your vision seems to prove true, as the Daemon card signifies Chaos. This Paradise World has a sun not unlike that of Holy Terra, a possible font for the Star. But the Knight, is the only puzzle...

    You return to the range, to find most only the overseer on the scene. Although reluctant, he returns your lasgun and directs you down range.

    >Weapon Familiarity: Las Weapons (Treat as BS4)

    You practice and familiarize yourself for an hour.
