    Once again we gather, brothers...

    Do you want a session today or should we wait for a better situation to strike again?

    NEW PLAYERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME, if we have a session, that is.

    And my greatest thanks for those brave brothers who fought at the rearguard yesterday and archived the thread while I had to retreat.

    This is an ongoing collective game centered around a chapter of space marines. Skargan is the DM and everyone else throws in their opinion on what decisions the Chapter Master should make. It's somewhat inspired by, but ultimately unrelated to Chapter Master. This is the eighth session thus far. Previous sessions are here. >>17697066

    Should we make contact with the Celestial Lions? Account for their losses and congratulate them for their victory?
    >> Anonymous 01/27/12(Fri)14:52 No.17697221

    The last thing we did last session was accept the Celestial Lions onto our ship after they defeated the Ork Waagh.

    Right now the main questions are:

    1. How the Celestial Lions managed to defeat an entire Ork Waagh with just one frigate
    2. Whether Nixonia is a hive of scum and villainy like Jared said, or an innocent planet in good standing like the Celestial Lions said
    3. Where Moriarty is, if not on Nixonia, and whether he intends to attack us.

    1. They're either REALLY good, really lucky, or both.
    2. It's probably a hive of scum and villainy, but Moriarty/the planet's ruler played the innocent victim to get the CL to come to their aid.
    3. Now that he knows we know, he won't stay on the planet long if he was there. If he's alive, he definitely intends to attack.

    1. Arrange a meeting with their Chapter Master and Captains and out own. (Appear to be purely congratulatory, but be suspicious.)
    2. With out the Lions knowledge, arrange for our best scouts to make planetfall on Nixonia. Have them keep constant communication updates.

    Moriarty was a dick-ass RT ruling Heidrun. To say he was impolite is a massive understatement, and we engaged/defeated his fleet after one too many threats/insults. We recently learned from our pirate serf that he survived, and is gathering an army of traitorous criminals to get revenge.

    So an FYI on Moriarty for those who missed the first session: Since the first session was filled with nothing but idiots screaming PURGE!!! and DEATH TO THE HERETICS!!!, we went a bit psycho there. After first scouting Heidrun, our captain reported that its leader, Moriarty attempted to force our ships into his custody. We demanded reparations for the slight, but then decided to blow up his ships anyway. Then we decided to genocide half the population of the planet because there were so many heretics and also for the heck of it just because drugs are a weakness and Heidrun was full of druggies. We have now received word that Moriarty and the Black Guild, a pirate cartel, are gathering on Nixonia to attack us. We had originally planned to redirect an Ork Waagh to Nixonia, but a single frigate from the Celestial Lions chapter singlehandedly defeated the Waaagh while we sat back and tried to continue on our original plan. We have now accepted the Celestial Lions on our ship.

    Are we at all suspicious for the nature of the Lions victory? They better have some DoT Relic. (That are Tech-Marines and Chaplains should have a look at.)

    There is nothing wrong with moriarty, its just that he demanded that marines lower their weapons, which made us distrust him. Then some moron decided we should attack him and destroy his fleet. Then we caused a genocide by accident.

    Wrongo. He insulted the honor of the chapter, and our following actions were completely justified in the sake of bringing the Emperor's Holy light to a drugged out den of scum and villainy. Out of it we got a city known as Salvation, which is what we brought to the suffering Heidrun.

    Good to see you Skargan!

    Now, the cowards thing, is that warranted? We weren't being cowards, we were following our original plans when some gung-ho chapter that had no idea about the scope of the entire situation decided to balls out charge the center of the pack with no regard for the lives of their crew and the future of their chapter. We made the right choice, the only choice in not attacking. If 30 guys with malfunctioning pituary glands are standing there with baseballs bats, it's not cowardly to not run up and punch them in the face, its good sense. It's like not wearing Crip colors in a blood neighborhood, you just don't do it.

    There was discussion on Chapter ideology last session, but nothing much came of it. Our head Chaplain, however, is a reasonable marine who believes that the emperor was a great man, and not a god, so make of that what you will. We've generally been fairly cautious and wary of traps, trying to keep casualties as low as possible, and succeeded pretty well thus far, even managing to defeat four obliterators without taking a scratch due to a lucky crit.

    But did it cost us our honour? Who did we kill, drug fiends, heretics, and separatists. And I don't know about you guys, but what the Tyrians did was completely out of line, which is why we worked to set up Salvation, to protect those that were loyal to the Imperium from the barbarity of the marauding Tyrian death squads and ex-delirium addicts who hadn't succumbed to the withdrawal yet. I'm under the impression we saved those who needed saving, and killed those that necessitated an early demise. If I'm wrong about who we saved, then I will accept it.

    Well if they stopped a WAAAGH with one ship, they're either packing some serious dakka, or they are all tactical geniuses.

    We should be suspicious either way.
    >> Strill 01/27/12(Fri)15:28 No.17697632
    Well they at least appear to be space marines from our communication, and they defeated the Waaagh so I don't think they're traitors or anything. I'd guess that Moriarty tricked them into thinking that Nixonia is a world in good standing and asked for their help. Other than that, the question is how they're so powerful. My best guess is that they're either really good, really lucky, or have some secret weapon they're not telling us about.
    >> Nigel !!Yo16BoA2xvX 01/27/12(Fri)15:29 No.17697637
    The suicidly flew into the biggest Rok, and had 4 thunderhawks drop off their marines on board, who preceded to eliminate the Warboss. Everything they owned except for 2 thunderhawks was destroyed in the process. It wasn't tactical genius, they just recognized that if they could somehow get their men onto the ship, they would have little trouble, because how the hell is a bunch of orks going to stop Space Marines in the confines of a ship.

    An entire chapter tracking one man? Both impractical and demeaning, Jarred can keep an eye out for him, and/or we can put a substantial price on his head. He who associates with backstabbing criminals is in fact likely to be stabbed in the back by criminals.

    You do not understand the Imperial morality. You're thinking of the Imperium as heroic (by modern, western standards), which it very decidedly isn't. It's fine if you think the chapter's morality should disagree with it, but don't think it would lose the chapter any honor in the wider Imperium if they trigger a genocide.

    What your staying is that the imperium is as moronic and uncomplicated as 'purge purge purge', but that is at its most simplistic level made to entertain people who are new to 40k.

    In actual fact, if you cause the destruction of too many humans it goes against the core purpose of the astarties, and would encourage people to think of them as heretics or renegades. Possibly using the souls of the dead for another purpose.

    The only ones able to initate an exterminatus is the inquisition. Marines are used for assaults against key tactical points.

    On a more serious note, lets have 5ish Marines assigned to him as a guard and guiding council. That way he looks impressive and we have enough reports (from the marines) to cross check them with accuracy. And it would be harder for Jared to bribe all five.

    Laws of reputation never followed laws of logic. If someone does shit and gets away with it and you stand by with a lot better chance to pull off the same shit, but you don't do something similar/better - in comparision you look like a coward.
    Don't mind the old guys, ofcourse they have right to be proud for making this chapter what it is, but reading older threads is not mandatory. do it only for your own fun, Dante.
    Jarred as a matter of fact is in his cell not 200m away, you can speak with him whenever you want, he serves you.

    This isn't going to be a rooty tooty shoot n' looty mission, they're going into a hive world to capture/kill one man, and to assess the situation. Kalemus would be ideal for this, as our little brothers might not even see a battle here.

    Kalemus will lead. Not only is he good at stealth, but Nimrod's troops may not even see battle if we don't locate Moriarty (if he left the planet for instance).

    Squad size: 10, they need to be able to pull their own weight in case we can't deploy more.

    Priority is the capture of Leyshan Moriarty, but killing him is acceptable if capture proves too difficult, or if he starts to escape. Harakim may be an enemy in the future but that's not why we're here.

    Infiltrate capital. I doubt the RT would be hanging around the fleet unless it belonged to him.

    Not sure about the last one.

    I really wouldn't be too worried about Waldorf or the bureaucrats, while he has a cozy position, we aren't going to hurt him or impede his tax-paying duties (which is his only important trait). We're just dealing with a rogue trader that we know is plotting an attack against our chapter (and by extension, the Imperium).

    Stopping him is our duty, and it is not Waldorfs place to order us or impede that duty.

    Waldorf claims that woman is his servant, but she is dear to him. He claims that Moriarty is nothing but bussiness associate with whom 'they sometimes party'.

    Moriarty claims to have no knowledge who or what that woman, except that she 'can ride two men all night long'. Waldorf is his best friend.

    Woman refuses to speak at all.


    Moriarty wants to settle what has happened between you. He claims to have been wronged and attacked even when he wanted a peaceful solution.

    Waldorf shouts that when Sector court will hear about this 'your gene-seed will be used to inseminate xeno-horses in my Villa'.

    It sounds like the woman is an innocent victim, and Moriarty is trying to hide behind Waldorf's influence. I doubt his "best friend" would call him "nothing but a business associate", and if he is then Moriarty has a poor choice in friends. They can probably be dealt with through bribes and polite apologies.

    Moriarty wants you to repay him for his fleet 500W(this is just a portion of the cost) OR to help him to regain his rule of Heidrun OR give him Cruiser + 3 Escorts. Then he will hold the matter between you settled and will be as cooperative as any other Governor in the Sub-Sector. To personal duel option he answers that his champions are dead in the Heidrun's orbit, so there is no way he will match any of you. However he claims that he is tired of living from other people's favour like a refugee and says, that you can kill him - then he will laugh at the fate of your chapter from the Emperor's side.

    Waldorf has a very simple deal to you: you release all of them right now and forget Moriarty. Then he will remain silent about your 'terrorist actions'.

    I'm all for letting him and his lover go, but Moriarty? Even if he wasn't a threat during the encounter at Heidrun, he has attempted to raise an army against us, he clearly voiced his resentment for us, and his words of "peace" are probably spoken only because he is at our mercy.

    Regarding Nordgrim: If they were attacked, and the ships that did it (I'm guessing admech) remain in orbit, a small force will not be sufficient. We also cannot risk a large fleet being engulfed by the warp storm, so we should wait for it to appear so we can move around it.

    Nooooooo! I just got back from work and it's over!

    Oh well. Just finished rereading and this is my 2 cents:

    Negotiate to send Moriarty with the Lions, but after that business is done have him come back to us. His dynasaty would make a great partnership with our chapter if we can both put the Heidrun Fiasco behind us. Rogue Traders tend to know what the hell they're doing most of the time, and giving him command of a few escorts, plus a retinue of Marines to keep him on the straight and narrow, act as the muscle, represent the authority we give him in the name of the Rising Sons, and give some green troops some experience. Have 10 veterans and 20 2nd generations accompany him. Have him work for us with lucrative enough terms that after 10 years he'd want this business alliance to continue rather than bugger off and do his own thing. Farther down the line, someone from his line would make a great planetary governor for any planet we take under our control, *cough*Norgrim*cough*.

    Let's drop Waldorf and his mistress, Statler, off at home and hopefully he's intimidated enough to for get this whole ordeal if we cover any damages to his property,, and tell him if he ever needs a certain heretic purged, just give us a call. That should keep him hushed up, no?

    Lets jet off to Norgrim ASAP to try to save our techmarine. When we arrive, we'll have some stuff to deal with, hopefully before the warp storms set in.
