    You are the Transpace Guard. You are attacking the Black Gate while infiltrating Barad-dur in order to steal a Ring of Power. There's far more, but the recounting will be done when we're not in the middle of a huge fight.

    As your forces begin to rout the enemy, sending him fleeing towards the Black Gate, you feel as if you are being watched...


    As the massive battle at the Black Gate occurs, the infiltration at Barad-dur begins. Your cloaked Delta Greens and Tosh advance towards the massive tower. They are undetected for the time being.

    Wait, I thought we were keeping the Delta Green team on the Al'Kesh, in order to minimize the size of the infiltration team (Tosh, EMH and 1 Auror) and so that they could provide cover fire if they need to set the Al'Kesh down in case an interdiction field goes up around Barad-dur.

    I'm having trouble accessing the chat for some reason.

    The stealth team takes a while, but eventually they find a good place to climb up the walls, the Auror simply flying past jagged battlements and hideous gargoyles. The Auror pauses for a moment to dispel several hidden trap spells as the Stealth Team ascends. In what seems like ages, the final Delta Green scrambles over the top.

    They are now on a black iron rampart. Imposing doors of the same metal are to the north and south.

    Not from the ship, no. Do Aurors have a Potterverse version of Locate Object?

    Your Auror manages to unlock the southern door and your team passes through into it. Inside is another door, presumably leading out to more battlements, and spiral stairs leading down. You can barely hear the footfalls of patrolling orcs deeper within the dim-lighted fortress.

    Your team descends down the stairs... right into an ascending orc patrol. The orcs don't see you due to your invisibility, but things get confusing when one steps on a DG's foot with a spiked boot and he can't help but utter a strangled curse. Luckily, disaster is averted due to your quick orders for Tosh's mindblast and the Auror's petrify. The off-guard orcs are swiftly and silently taken down, but you have no way of getting rid of the bodies.

    You are now on a time limit.

    At the bottom of the stairs is a circular chamber with an open door leading out into a small courtyard. It is mostly open space, probably a marshaling yard. Several stacks of firewood and piles of coal are heaped at the rear corners, near a large ramp leading underground. Two large double doors of adamant are the other exits, leading in the direction of the Main Gate, and one leading towards the inner tower.

    ...and I can't seem to access the JavaChat, no matter what I do.

    As someone who participated in the original Editors meta-setting threads, it seems that people have forgotten one of the primary rules of the Editors: Don't touch the protagonists.
    When you recruit, you recruit grunts. You could recruit a space marine, but not a Primarch or captain, because that would fuck with canon and you're trying to FIX canon.

    Now, on the chat someone told me that /tg/ Quest is set before the editors themselves come into being, which means those rules wouldn't apply. But I'd like to get confirmation from OP.

    As one of the co-creators from the original Editors thread, I vouch for this. After the Great Crossover Wars, during which extensive 'recruitment' was needed, the Transpace Guard decided that preventing further crossovers was imperative. Thus, the rule against protagonist interference. I can post a link to the 'official' Codex we have for the setting if anybody wants.

    The team advances past the archway, into a large hallway that leads further into the tower. It is dimly lit here, by a scant few torches set into iron insets in the walls. The walls themselves are ribbed with hard-angled iron braces every few feet. The sounds of whimpering and moaning can be heard further in. Occasionally it is punctuated by screams and the sounds of the lash, or the sizzle of something against flesh.

    Largest is, obviously, Sauron. But the rings should be next in line.

    The Nazgul advances with lightning speed, shaking off the Auror's magic as he drives his blade into one of the cloaked Delta Greens. The Green drops to the ground, shivering as the other Greens tear apart four of the six orcs in short order. The remaining two charge, swinging their weapons in wide arcs in order to hit their invisible opponents, and seemingly relying on some other senses to detect their general location. Two more Greens suffer gashes on their arms and chests as they fail to get out of the way in time.

    Several mass rifles impact the Ring-Wraith, which lets out a shriek as parts of its armor are crumpled to nothing.


    A silvery ghost appears in front of the Auror and the Ring-wraith shrinks back from it, attempting to stab the apparition with its blade and failing.

    Tosh grimaces as he lashes out with his mind and the Nazgul seems to stagger for a moment. More mass rifle fire tears off more armor as the Auror attempts a petrification spell that still fails.

    Hmmm. Could the incarcerous charm work? Since it conjures ropes instead of directly binding the Nazgul, maybe it can bypass his magic resistance?

    Maybe crushing it under the stones around it would work? It is a wraith.. they need shapes to wear and beasts to ride. Maybe killing its body would free us of having to deal with it?

    In several passages it is stated that Sauron keeps the Nine.

    "They would have obeyed . . . any minor command of his that did not interfere with their errand - laid upon them by Sauron, who still through their nine rings (which he held) had primary control of their wills . . . — The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, Letter 246
    They were by far the most powerful of his servants, and the most suitable for such a mission, since they were entirely enslaved to their Nine Rings, which he now himself held . . . — Unfinished Tales, p. 338"

    rolled 96 = 96

    The Auror advances forward and levels his wand.

    "Petrificus Totalus!"

    The spell is complete, but another Delta Green pays a heavy price for it, as the Ringwraith's blade pierces into his shoulder. The Nazgul turns... and is unable to move his feet. The spell worked...partially.

    Another shrill shriek splits the air as the mass rifles leave a massive hole in the wraith's center. Then suddenly Tosh levels his rifle and aims carefully. A burst of gauss rounds blast off the Nazgul's right hand, and Tosh dashes forward to pick up the gauntlet. The wraith shrieks in impotence, slashing at Tosh as he retrieves the item. The blade impacts against his armor, but does not pierce it.

    "We got de ting! Or close enuff! Move it!"

    Piss off, out of Barad-Dur and the Black Gate.
    Get the Delta Greens some Auror, EMH, Egon and BLU Medic-related healing if they still live.
    Stuff any dead KIs or X-com soldiers in recovery tanks.
    Pick up Spike and the Sandmen (and the Booze) from Rivendell
    Give Ahriman the ring
    Tally our losses

    From this world, we managed to:
    1. Stop Ahriman, a chaos sorceror, from interfering with the plot.
    2. Prevent a Shipper from interfering with the plot, and also collect evidence of her past crimes.
    3. Loot a shitload of swords
    4. Loot a shipper vessel, which contained a Bomb that could hurt chaos demons.

    Our research topics for the moment are:
    Defensive applications of reality emitters
    Use of Ghost traps on a wider range of targets
    The Bomb that the shipper used to repel chaos demons
    Middle Earthen Elven magic from the scrolls and swords we obtained (The Aurors should work on this, not the Scientists)

    Our manufacturing topics for the moment are:
    Repair of Gurthang

    When we get back to base, we need magic protection, psi protection, more SCIENCE!, and more information-gathering tools (be they upgraded sensors, plot-o-vision, telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, or people with uncanny intuition).

    Tosh scoops the ring up in the containment box, then the group begins running back up to the courtyard.


    The sound of boots on metal, stone, and earth fill the air as the shrill shrieking of the wraith seems to have garnered unwanted attention. Arrows begin to fly through the air as dark archers locate the fleeing troops and fire at them.

    The troops make it back to the ramparts, trailing behind them a large horde of angry orcs. Just as the first orc comes up the stairs, the Al'Kesh swoops down, laying a suppressing fire while gathering its wards to it. Once the final Green is aboard, the Al'Kesh turns and soars back into the sky, which echoes with a shrill, high-pitched scream.

    To-do list:

    1. Extract the distraction team ASAP, along with all the wounded and dead we haven't already beamed up.
    2. Full casualty list, get healing/nanny bags etc going
    3. Have ANON project potential canon damage from giving a Nazgul ring to Ahriman
    4. Cleanup the black gate. Beam up any non-canon materials from the battle site. Sauron cannot get his hands on them.

    THEN speak to Ahri, only IF the ring is safe to pass.

    N.B. Would it be possible to embed a tracking beacon in the containment box when we hand the ring over? It could be good to know where Ahriman is in future. He might be useful.

    >3. Have ANON project potential canon damage from giving a Nazgul ring to Ahriman
    Definitely needing to do this.

    The big reasons why we went after the Dwarven Rings of Power was because fighting Ahriman would introduce large casualties, and such a big battle so close to the Protagonists would disrupt Canon, and because the Dwarven Rings are only mentioned in the Canon, but never seen, used, or recovered, making their disappearance from their resting place non-damaging.

    But now, we've got one of the Nine, possibly taking out a Ringwraith before the story has concluded. This presents uncertainty. We may have damaged the Canon in some way.

    Also, maybe we should get a group of Final Fantasy White Mages, or at least some other magical healing specialists.
    Having magic healers attached to each away team should minimize casualties to instant vaporization only.

    Using the elven lore, you are able to locate enough kingsfoil to begin working on a treatment.

I don't think Sauron will want to waste resources fighting us, so he might accept the deal.

    If all goes well, Sauron thinks us just some strange band of random warriors, not allied with the Free-Peoples. Even less canon damage.

    Alright, that's a good start. But what about contingencies?
    How do we tell if the Dwarf Ring he offers is a fake?
    What if he tries to trap the person doing the hand-off?

    1. If we gave him the Wraith ring and he gave us a fake, we try to attack. Worst out come.

    2. We teleport him out of there!

    3. Hand it to Ahriman. Wraith-Ring will have to do in that case.

    Why don't you try to be less stupid?

    The Black Breath takes days to kill a person, even a severe case.
    And right now we need to discuss whether we should, and how we can, negotiate with Sauron to trade the Ring we have (one of the Nine) for one of the remaining Seven in Sauron's possession, in order to lessen the potential for damage to the Canon. It might be low now, but it still shouldn't be risked if we can avoid it.

    1. We should try to come up with a way of determining whether the Ring to be traded is a fake or not. Possibly use Sindi's Ring as a base scan, since it was once one of the Seven.

    2. Dangerous though, since we don't know how quickly or easily these people could throw up an interdiction field. We had that problem in Fingolfin's Tomb, remember.

    Trying to trade with Sauron is pointless. I sincerely doubt that this ring is more or less important canonically than the other ring, neither of which are ever important to the story. Further, the negotiations are almost certain to end only with violence, and killing piles of Sauron's warriors while leaving evidence of our presence is more likely to cause canon disruptions than choosing this secondary ring over another secondary ring.

    I don't know why we didn't just try to kill Ahriman in the first place, but we're long past that. Let's just conclude our dealings with him and have done with this world.

    Give him the ring, pack up, scan for reality distortions, and GTFO.
    >> Anonymous 11/11/11(Fri)16:41 No.16919192
    Alright, so the plan seems to be:

    1. Get our Delta Green boys down to Tom Bombadil, to see if we can ask him nicely to heal our men.
    1a. Science team continues work on the Kingsfoil treatment, in case Tom is off on one of his journeys and isn't available.
    2. We fire an arrow with a message into the Black Gate (BLU Sniper).
    2a. Message is to tell Sauron that we have one of the Nine; we are willing to trade it for one of the Seven. He has 6 hours to make the trade. If he wants to make the trade, he is to fly a white flag above the Black Gate.
    3. Have Egon work on creating a scanner that can tell apart a real Ring of Power from a fake, using the one Nine and damaged Seven we have as a baseline.

    If Sauron tries to jerk us around or stalls for time, we just go ahead and give the one of the Nine we have to Ahriman.
    >> Anonymous 11/11/11(Fri)16:43 No.16919207
    We didn't fight Ahriman directly because of the proximity to Rivendell and because of the casualties he could inflict on our forces.
    As it is, 4 Knights Inductor and 2 X-COM veterans is still far less than what we would have lost fighting Ahriman.

    We discussed WHY we shouldn't fight Ahriman directly when we first positively IDed him. The fact that he has a working teleportation interdiction field working, here, in a different Canon, meant that his sorcerous powers were still working and considerable.

    While the Canon distortion from one of the Nine disappearing may be minimal, it can be reduced even further by replacing it with one of the Seven.
    That gives us all the reason necessary to attempt the trade.

    >While the Canon distortion from one of the Nine disappearing may be minimal, it can be reduced even further by replacing it with one of the Seven.

    That is baseless supposition. Let's ask and see whether it's true;

    ANON: Calculate the importance to canon of the ring in our possession compared to one of the seven rings that Sauron possesses. If the other rings are significantly less important to canon, include calculation of how likely we are to disrupt canon by attempting to negotiate for one of them. I suspect that it is significantly less disruptive to simply leave with this one.

    (As an aside, why did we go scavenging for random elven weapons? That seems to fly in the face of our mission - they're local artifacts of great significance.)
    >> Anonymous 11/11/11(Fri)17:08 No.16919358
    Were you paying attention AT ALL when the plans were being discussed?

    We needed elven weapons that are not used in the course the Canon in order to distract Sauron, so that his attention would be diverted from Barad-dur, making an infiltration of the stronghold possible.
    >> Anonymous 11/11/11(Fri)17:12 No.16919379
    ...and we're obviously planning on keeping them. This also included the scavenging of a broken sword that couldn't possibly be useful in the context you said. So now that we've used the weapons in the appropriate context, we need to put them back in their appropriate places. Our entire purpose is making sure the canon is left exactly as it was before The Event. Dicking around and getting legendary weapons isn't part of our mission statement, is it?
    >> OP 11/11/11(Fri)17:13 No.16919389
    "It is unlikely that the Nine will provide greater distortion to the canon than taking one of the Seven, though admittedly possible. Regardless, second contact with Sauron after the infiltration and the Gate incident will be extremely risky given he will now be alert to what we can do and allocate forces according. This change in his battle-plan may disrupt the timeline far more than any change of rings, especially when you managed to leave the Ring-Wraith 'alive', possibly allowing Sauron to anchor him to a different object. However, as always, the decision is yours."

    Just as I thought. There is no reason to take unnecessary risks that are seemingly more likely to damage the canon than their reward benefits it.

    1. Exchange the ring with Ahriman for information about The Event
    2. Make sure the WH40K portal is closed behind him as he departs
    3. Scan this world one last time for reality distortions
    4. Back to base!

    Anchor it to a different object?
    Wait a sec, what's stopping Sauron from just using one of his Dwarven Rings as an anchor?
    There isn't much functional difference between the Rings of Dwarves and Men, it's just that the Dwarves were so thoroughly unmagical and stubborn that most of the effects were lost on them.
    So there will be nine Nazgul after all, one just getting an upgrade, though it won't do him much good.

    No, our purpose is to make sure that Canon is maintained and that reality distortions are eliminated. The exact state of a Canon doesn't matter as long as the Canon's narration of events is maintained and no reality distortions are detected.
    As an example, we did not expend effort in erasing the Drow in the Shadowrun timeline when they experienced a crossover event, because the Drow were not generating a reality distortion.

    Then you should have been more specific in which part of the original poster you were referring to.

    Also, the plan of action you endorsed means we leave before we either have the cure for the Black Breath finished, or have the two afflicted Delta Green agents cured by Tom Bombadil.

    You're teleporting Darius to Bombadil, yes? Finding the Old Forest is easy enough, as is transport there. Darius is only a few minutes' hike into the woods when he hears the following song echo through the air.

    "Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!
    Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow!
    Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!"

    "Sir!" Darius calls out. "Are you... Tom Bombadil?"

    "Tom I be, and Tom I am.

    You beam the two afflicted Deltas down to Tom and he sings a song and dances around them. The ritual succeeds in reviving the two soldiers, though they feel decidedly less manly at being healed by singing and dancing than by more traditional means.
