    108 KB The Ship Moves RPG 9: Into the Breach GM Draxxon 01/30/12(Mon)10:11 No.17735710  
    You manage to make it back to the Captain's Flame unscathed, and between Rachael, Jasper, and Dallas, they've managed to already partially restore some of the damage to the cutter. However, before you can get too comfortable, your vox sounds and the captain says "My Lords, I'd appreciate your presence on the bridge at your earliest convenience. We may have a problem, and I need your advice."

    Once on the bridge, he informs you that sensors indicate that the entire corridor, still covered in Tyranids, ends in some kind of solid wall of biomass. Given their current speeds, an impact would be unwise, and he is asking your recommendation of whether they attempt to blow through the biomass (of unknown thickness) or blow through the relatively-flimsy vent floor below them and travel the last few dozen clicks in the Isolatus Sector (Pic is related, probable appearance of the Sector atm).

    The problem is unless I change it to "+2 Damage vs Fearghas," while it would affect you more on average, it would absolutely ream Muro or Anon, and my enemies I try to be (somehwat) logical in who they target and why.

    I think what will end up being the solution is fights vs really large #s of enemies or really big nasty enemies, and you'll get to play tank.

    Sweet. Lots of peeps.

    So, what's your verdict. The captain has suggested you can

    A) Blast through the biomass, although they can't tell how deep it is and impact at this speed would be disastrous.

    B) Blow through the floor of the vent and enter the Isolatus Sector. He's confident you can easily punch through the metal floor and into the sector, but only the God-Captain knows how bad things are down there.

    Your choice? (Or if you have an alternative idea, he'd be all ears)

    With a rumble of blessed fire, the Litany begins unloading everything that can point downward at the vent floor, obliterating waves upon waves of Tyranids as they smash against the metal floor. Within a minute, the ground begins to creak, and suddenly the entire floor section gives way, thousands of rivets and bolts flying everywhere as the vent panel pops out from the strain.

    Below you is a scene unlike any you've ever witnessed. Every gear, every flat surface is charred and blackened, as if held to an open flame. Across dozens of hive-gears, you can see collapsed hive and spore tower spires alike littering the edges of multiple vortex craters.

    A glimmer of color and movement catches your eye, and you notice a small group of a couple thousand Tyranids with the same red and white markings you saw attacking the Litany. They're clustered around a few larger monsters, including a Hive tyrant, when suddenly the ground around them erupts, reddish-black monsters covered in what appears to be solidified magma or molten metal attacking them.

    As the last surviving handful of gaunts try futilely to escape the huge creatures, you come to three realizations. One is that the new monsters actually resemble Tyranids very strongly, if strangely. Two, you now become aware that the Tyranids in the vent were trying to escape this new strain of monster.

    And three, a half-dozen of them spot the Litany, and pairs of huge flaming wings become visible as they lift off towards the ship.

    +Most nids travel in hive fleets. Bioships & the like, spores a plenty. But there is a certain, terrible fleet that does things differently. They are called Nidhoggr, & their method of travel is to turn their current planet into a horribly unstable volcanic landscape. They encase themselves in huge amounts of molten stone & metal, & use the force of massive eruptions to escape the planet, traveling toward their next prey in artificial asteroids. Now most nids overwhelm with numbers, via crazy amounts of spore-pod bombardment. But Nidhoggr, after raising hell with their impromptu asteroids, go underground. They hide there, carving massive swaths of destruction in the mantle of the unfortunate planet. After some years, & proceeded by an increase in volcanic activity/tectonic stress, they emerge to do their job. Besides the difference of being armored in molten materials, they are also quite a bit larger than regular nids. They make MCs lok like puppies. They then go there merry way about the planet, basically turning it back to a state similar to when it was created. They burn everything, & devour stone,metal, & the like. They are very scary. That's what I know, at least.)

    I was hoping none of you would know about it, but now that you do, the taste of dread is that much sweeter :)

    Um, I feel it's only fair to point out that Nidhoggr Tyranids use heat energy as well as biomass. So you might do a small, small hint of damage, but mostly you'll just charge them up... :D

    Couldn't have summed it up better myself. Speaking of which...

    With a new eye to the situation, you realize that not all of the craters pocking the hivegears are from Vortex missiles. Several, in fact, look to have been gouged out of the very holy metal of the gear itself, as if by the teeth of some enormous rooting animal. (Pic related)

    Much more pressing on your mind are the six burning, winged flaming beasties. Go ahead and roll for shots like we did before vs the Trygon (You'll have to roll a 6 to hurt them with the Inferno cannon, and a 5+ on the meltas, for obvious reasons :) )

    Ok. Didn't know where you guys were.

    The captain is waiting for you, holding a dataslate. "Apparently, the far door has been sealed shut, but the control mechanism was not destroyed. We were cleared to be given the Inquisitorial authorization litany in case we were forced to travel through the sector. Since the Flame is the fastest ship present, I'd ask you to travel ahead of the litany, secure the control room, and open the door for us. There should be a time-delay closing mechanism so you'll be able to be sure to shut the door behind us to prevent further sullying of the God-Captain's ship by this scum."

    You manage to successfully help fix some of the damage to the Flame. Along with Rachael, Dallas, and Jasper, she's now in much, much better shape.(4/6 BHP). The captain calls you on the vox to inform you that they'll be approaching the control station in a few minutes. He relays the plan, which is for you to leave and dock at the control station as the Litany loops around, as even now you're still trailing a couple flying Nids, and staying put would be unwise.

    Feeling yet another chitinous blade pierce his armor, Karg continues battling the beast. Once more peppering the massive xeno with plasma, then lunging forward with his sword.

    (I think I'm gonna use mah once-a-mission bonus die to work on slaying this beast too. AL, SA, Axeman, bonus) "STOP! IGNORING! MEEEEE!" Straddles the beast's shoulders and swings hard into the carnifex's head.

    Your axe impales it between the eyes, sending the beast to a shuddering halt. As it dies the magma oozes out of it, melting little holes in the grating.

    Karg, you can feel a sharp stabbing in your mind, similar to the probing from earlier magnified a thousandfold. All of you can feel a low rumbling, and massive steps from downstairs. There is a brief clang as the stairway breaks, and then you can hear a crunch as chitinous talons claw their way up the corridor.

    Distantly, you can hear the panel in the control room *ding*, and a tinny voice says "Thank you for removing the obstruction. The God-Captain appreciates your patience, and wishes you a swift and safe journey."

    (Nice one Fearghas)

    Seeing the Carnifex fall to the space marine heartens Anon, surely the Angel of Death was more than a match for the wounded beast. Hearing the announcement Anon scoops up his Hellgun and checks his Plasma Pistol. Still far too warm to consider firing safely. The way was clear for the Litany. Now it was time to get the hell out.

    Slides off and kicks the carnifex in the head while pulling my axe out. "We should go."

    "Agreed." Speaking into the vox:" Nagdalene, get the Flame ready for an emergency pickup. We're being followed." He cringes as the alien screams pitch in his mind.
