    65 KB Planetary Governor Quest: Part Three TheGameroom !E1yyNEjdEc 03/24/12(Sat)18:19 No.18443550  
    Previous Threads:

    You are former Imperial Navy captain Elyssa von Braun, the newly appointed Planetary Governor of the planet Daysimir following the previous corrupt, incompetent, and, as it turned out, Tau-Sympathizing Governor Rodoris Caliphate the Sixths removal from office for failure to pay the Imperial Tithes.

    The world itself is somewhat larger than Terra and has gravity roughly 10% higher, along being notably richer in mineral resources, it also has deposits of several useful substances not found on Ancient Terra. It's population of 3 billion 32 million souls (The old Governor was fastidious about keeping up population census, if nothing else of practical value) is spread more or less evenly across the single inhabitable mega-continent of Daysimir, stretching from pole to pole and containing a wide variety of environments. The planet is dotted with smaller island chains and landmasses, but due to harsh climates they are populated only by research and weather-observation outposts, along with the occasional goat herd that remains only because they have no means of leaving.

    Aside from divergent continents the planet is practically the twin of Ancient Terra, having been terraformed and seeded with Terran life forms during the Dark Age of Technology, the planet has both a massive moon similar to Luna and a range of trace minerals nearly identical to Old Earth, meaning that the population of Daysimir, unlike most other planets in the Imperium, does not require regular supplementary pills to make up for trace minerals that the planet is deficient in.

    The people of Daysimir are a hardy, independent, and freedom-loving folk, heavily armed and used to telling authority figures to go to Hell when their interference becomes annoying. Many of them were veterans of the conquest of the planet by the Tau Empire, and the following guerrilla war to free it. Resistance forces eventually won with the help of Eldar strike-teams from Exodite worlds in the sector and a nearby Craftworld. After 12 years of bloody guerrilla warfare beside their Eldar allies, along with the occasional Gue’Vesa or Kroot Turncloaks, the people of Daysimir shed the Imperial propaganda that the Ecclesiarchy had managed to hammer into the population after Imperial forces shut down their trade with nearby Xenos Empires. Since the end of the war the neither the Ecclesiarchy or anti-Xenos propaganda have been welcome on Daysimir, and clandestine trade with old Eldar allies continues in the wilderness to this day, far from prying eyes.

    It was because of this bloody-minded independence, martial spirit, and near-total disregard for the ancient Laws of the Imperium that Governor Rodoris was blocked from tyrannizing his people, by fear of a planet-wide rebellion, and was thus limited to squandering tax money on a lavish palace and personal pleasures instead of holding his populace in an iron grip as he had intended. The Governor was eventually removed from power when he began cracking down on the ancient civil rights of the planets citizens. Imperial authorities in the sector feared that a successful rebellion (As the PDF had atrophied from constant embezzling of funds for several decades) would encourage unrest across dozens of worlds and removed him from office. The planet is also unusual in that most positions normally held by Techpriests are instead occupied by civilian engineers and technicians, leaving the Techpriests in control of only the most complex and advanced pieces of machinery and greatly reducing the amount of influence the AdMech holds over the planetary government. The population of Daysimir boasts both a very low rate of mutation and almost twice the number of Geneseed-Compatible citizens, making it a popular recruiting world for fleet-based Astartes Chapters.

    The planet is also home to several million Ogryns living in tribal groups on the northern reaches of your world, which has had the effect of making your people far more tolerant of Abhumans and even more mistrustful of the Ecclesiarchy. Until the Tau occupation and Rodoris the Sixth’s disastrous appointment to Governor, it was customary for the Regiments Ogryn attachment to simply be recruited from their homeworld.

    The Nobilis Proscriptae Sector is located on the farthest reaches of the Eastern Fringe, being far enough away from both the Tau Empire and Ultramarine space to keep interference by both parties to a minimum. In the immediate sub-sector (Called Kri by the local merchants) there are three Civilized worlds, eight Frontier worlds (Backwater Civilized worlds with little to no Imperial presence, often ignore Imperial laws concerning trade with Xenos, although this is true of most of the sector) one Feudal world, and a Death World that is the proud home of the fiercest and most highly decorated Regiment in the sector.

    In the sector at large is more of the same, a mix of Frontier and Civilized worlds with a peppering of feudal and feral worlds. In the capitol system of the sector there is one Hive World (Magnoris, the Sector Capitol) one Forge World, two civilized worlds, one Agri-world, and a very lucrative asteroid belt mining colony.

    Of the Xenos presence in the sector, there are four major Empires: The Xin'Tar Warrior Hives to the "Southern” edge of the sector, the Kraan Hegemony to the North, The Jarki stars to the center of the sector, and an unknown reptilian race run by a "Cabal" in the East (And that's right near you!). There are also five Eldar Exodite Worlds, three Ork worlds (which are a constant pain in the ass) and one Daemon world (Which is a bigger pain in the ass to everyone than everything else in the sector combined). There are also several dozen minor Xenos races whose dominions extend over only one planet.

    Items of interest:

    There is a nest of Genestealers festering beneath your capitol; they have apparently been breeding domesticated Hormagaunts smuggled from the same Tyranid-threatened world they came from.

    The Iron Dragons Chapter has come to aide you in cleansing the Genestealer infestation. They have also shown interest in putting down roots on your planet as a Homeworld.

    A message has been sent to the Sisters of Battle and Ultramarine forces en route to deal with said Genestealers that the Iron Dragons are already on-site and dealing with the problem. The Sisters have sent back an affirmative and are changing course to engage a particularly troublesome band of Ork pirates, the Ultramarines have simply replied that they will be there shortly to “Clear up this matter” and have remained silent ever since.

    Infrastructure repair is 68% complete.

    Your capitol has been renovated to serve as the “Las Vegas” of your sector; tourism has been halted for the moment until the Genestealer crisis is taken care of. (Will become a +8 Currency income from tourism per year when the Spaceport is re-opened)

    Orbital Defense repair is 40% complete.

    The PDF is re-armed, trained, and enlarged.

    You have 38 Currency in your Treasury.

    Your annual income is 11 Currency (13 when infrastructure repair is complete) plus a bi-annual 15 from your Trade Fleet (Which cost 200 Currency)

    Notes to self:

    Contact the AdMech about procuring improved lasguns for the PDF and personal guards, and selling the old stock off on the civilian market.

    Consider converting the moon of your world into a massive orbital defense station and shipyard.

    Consider changing the name of your planet to something more “Grimdark” at the behest of citizens who are tired of being called “Daisies” by off-worlders.

    Discuss starting up a Xenos-Artifact distribution business with your RT friend, allowing Xenos merchants and human buyers to trade freely using Rogue Traders as middlemen to put a “sanction stamp” on Xenos artifacts to prevent the Inquisition from having cause to come down on you.

    Currently you are dealing with a Genestealer infestation in the sewers beneath your capitol, who were apparently breeding domesticated Hormagaunts as cannon-fodder. You are also negotiating with Chapter Master Raltus Ar’kyn of the Iron Dragons Chapter (Salamanders Successor, 21st Founding) concerning their settlement on your world as a Homeworld while five companies of his Astartes outfitted in Mark III Iron armor cleanse your sewers of Genestealer taint.

    Conditions agreed upon so far:

    The Chapter will take no part in your Government beyond an advisory role.

    You will provide the Chapter with the raw mineral resources to feed their forges.

    The Chapter will train your PDF and Guard to the highest quality.

    Raltus suggests that fortified Chapter Bastions be built in all of your cities, after the manner of the Salamanders on their homeworld.

    These suggestions all sound very reasonable.

    Exclude ship construction beyond repairs from the resources deal. Mining the resources for a cruiser or something like that would probably do lasting damage to the planet.

    Consult the leader of the militia concerning these things. Especially the Chapter Bastions in every city. I've got a feeling he might object to that.

    The Forges in question manufacture weapons, armor, and vehicles for the Iron Dragons. To build or even do extensive repairs on any but the smallest of vessels requires a massive dedicated shipyard, almost no one in the Imperium but the AdMech builds ships of any kind.

    Davos says over the radio that he will be there shortly to take part in the negotiations directly.

    >> TheGameroom !E1yyNEjdEc 03/24/12(Sat)19:01 No.18443941

    Slow going, but progress is definitely being made.

    After briefly consulting his lieutenants, Davos says he finds nothing wrong with this agreement, so long as the Planetary Government remains strictly independent of the Chapter.

    Davos brings several sheets of paper out of a battered sack.

    'I do have something you could help with, however. You see, we have always prided ourselves on our independence and self-sufficiency, but at the moment we are more reliant on trade than most realize. Many of our utilities and complex pieces of machinery, along with cybernetic limbs and organs, advanced medicines, and the very weapons our PDF relies on require replacement parts and specialists from off-planet, as we simply do not have the local tech-level to supply them ourselves. Perhaps your Techmarines could train our native technicians and engineers in advanced technology and upgrade our local manufacturing infrastructure so that we could support a more advanced technological base on our own? (Davos proposes that the Iron Dragons uplift your tech level from High Space (Somewhat more advanced than modern-day Earth) to Mid Imperial (Locally manufactured Cybernetics available for wealthy citizens, tech level high enough to manufacture most Imperial Guard weapons and vehicles without off-planet parts and experts)

    oh wow, I'm actually around for the start of this.

    This genestealer problem lurks beneath a heavily populated area, correct?

    If we could evacuate the area, could we have a ship lance the site from orbit? We set up an outer containment zone far enough to be safe from the lance strike, have the marines hold the inner area and then fall back to our positions before the lance strike?

    We can't really risk such a dangerous infestation surviving this, and the lance should be able to crush the center of genestealer resistance allowing us to mop up the fringes.

    this could be overkill, but might lower our casualties in the long run.

    A lance strike would do massive damage to your capitol, and the Iron Dragons with Spec Ops and PDF support seem to have the situation in hand, although it is slow going.

    You already have several drill-teams on standby to pump liquid Promethium into the core of the nest and burn it out once it has been pinpointed and quarantined.

    It seems we already are doing the best we can to contain the genestealers.

The stealers fight best through their cults, which frequently attempt to covert and infect important officials. All the better to pave the way for the Hive Fleet.

    This anon's advice should be followed. We should attempt to scan these populations as discreetly as possible; the last thing we need is a whole PDF platoon defecting en mass to the sewers.

    Have the Iron Dragons move forwards with basically all of their proposals; they're bros and shall be treated as such.

    By increasing your Tech Level by two notches you will be providing a massive boost to your economy. There are only a handful of Mid Imperial worlds and only three High Imperial planets (All of them in the Capitol system, Forge Worlds have a Tech Level all their own) in the entire sector, giving you a great advantage in inter-planetary trade, creating new jobs by having more manufacturing locally, and would also prevent some of your more advanced infrastructure from collapsing if Warp Storms or other events cut you off from the rest of the Imperium.


    Orbital defense repairs are 40% complete. Your Air-force is non-existent, but the Departmento Munitorum representative will be there shortly to oversee the expanding of your PDF and negotiate with you regarding getting a better mark of lasgun for use by PDF and your personal guard. If you know the Munitorum he will also want words regarding the Planetary Tithe in both resources and men.


    Testing has been implemented in your capitol already, more discreet testing is beginning among PDF and high-ranking individuals across the planet.

    Raltus nods "Having a more advanced infrastructure can only be beneficial to us both. While we're on the subject of mutually beneficial improvements, it has come to my attention that your planet lacks any orbital infrastructure beyond one major spaceport. High-altitude scans conducted while searching for a suitable site for our new Fortress Monastery revealed that this planet once had an orbital docking station more than suitable for the needs of our Chapter fleet. If we could pool our resources, tow it back into orbit, and repair it then it could greatly benefit us both."

    So we've got an orbital facility just floating free in space?

    Heck yeah, we're towing it back. Ask if the Marines would be willing to sweep it first, make sure the tyranids didn't put any sleeper agents onboard while it was a derelict. They love doing that. Would be a great way to train some PDF too.

    The munitorum guy will want to hike our tithes. If we let him do that we'll slow down ALL our improvements. Try to explain to him that we're undoing a whole lot of idiocy, and if he lets us build up first we'll be able to produce a lot more for the Imperium than if he starts squeezing now.

    Whoever keeps trying to get the sisters here: You are going to get us blamm'd for heresy. Our people, at ALL levels of society, are trading with xenos and have xenotech.

    They can dock, recover, build a church or two, but then we need to send them on their way.

    Most likely the Munitorum representative is simply going to affirm that you will actually pay the Tithes, unlike your predecessor.

    Raltus smiles "Not just one, We've also detected dozens of derelict orbital defense platforms floating around the system, it looks like they were abandoned long before the Tau occupation. If we could pull them in we'd have a reliable defensive grid around the planet."

    Davos suggests that you name the docking station after Davian Amir, a senior sewer technician who was almost solely responsible for convincing his fellows to guide your combined forces into the depths of Genestealer territory.

    Captain Irak'than of the First Company reports over the radio: "The Noose is closed, drill teams are in position. All forces are advised to prepare for a mad rush by Tyranid forces to escape the conflagration."

    Dozens of news cameras are rolling both on the surface, in the air, and down in the tunnels.

    The drills begin grinding down, penetrating almost 300ft below the city streets before retracting. soon they are replaced with promethium pumps.

    Minutes later, the ignition charges are set off.

    It begins as a rumble, building to the roar of some long-forgotten beast. a geyser of flame roars out of the drill holes, and on camera screens you see a wall of fire rushing out of the Nest towards the barricades. The assorted humans duck down under cover, but the Iron Dragons stand up to meet the flames, seem to be almost embracing them. Shortly after the cameras go dark.

    Davos bends down and presses his ear to a handheld radio. Then he clears his throat. "It... Would appear that over three and a half times more Promethium was used than was planned on. There aren't any casualties so far, but we have a lot of badly burned PDF and News people to evac to the surface. My men stayed behind hard cover and the Astartes...are, well, Astartes."

    He grins. "At least we know that the Tyranids have been well toasted."

    Also see if you can try to do some agriculture reform and improvement, more tech/manufacturing means more people in the cities, and a bigger food drain, furthermore you can use the extra food for tithes/cash.

    >> TheGameroom !E1yyNEjdEc 03/24/12(Sat)20:39 No.18444859

    Astartes have already begun moving in and cleansing the sewers. However, it could take weeks before it is absolutely certain that the infestation has been put down.

    Raltus raises an eyebrow "If I remember correctly it was you that suggested that part of the deal in the first place. Aside from that, Astartes equipment, while advanced, is meant to last, and is always repaired or re-fitted if at all possible. Our manufacturing would take a negligible amount of resources compared to normal planetary industry."

    The Tithes demanded of Rodoris before his removal come to 60 Currency and 350,000 Men. The monetary Tithe may be raised a bit if the Tech Level is raised before he arrives, and if you have Chimeras in local production then you'll be bound to supply a few of those too, along with supplying all the Chimeras your Regiment needs (although producing your own vehicles will grant you a tax break big enough that you'll come out slightly ahead).


    Medicae and Iron Dragon Apothecaries are evacuating the wounded as you speak.

    Librarians are searching the remains of the Hive for clues as to how the Genestealers bound the Hormagaunt swarms to their will. The wounded Patriarch has been located and put down.

    Many of Rodoris' people are still in important offices, so it was probably one of them. You've replaced almost all lower positions with competent elected officials, but you don't have enough of your old Navy staff on hand to replace all of the higher-ups. Perhaps you can start replacing them with competent locals?

    Yeah, we can let the astartes build their stuff. It'll boost everything: Morale, loyalty, martial skill, technology, etc. And fortresses will make our world almost impossible to take. Fucking Tau have another thing coming if they try again.

    I think that's only for worlds like Cadia and Krieg where the value of their recruits outstrips anything else.

    Quite frankly, we don't have enough people to fufill tithes using only recruits.

    Let's see if we can get our RT friend to get his hand on some rare/valuable crops, ATM we've got a lot of agri-power, so we should utilize some of that, look for crops that are valuable/rare or have medicinal properties, and are hopefully hardy and don't have a habit of turing into a weed.

    I think we should contact the Munitorium/RT and get maybe a squad of stormtroopers assigned to the planet to help us rebuild/train the pdf, having astartes is nice, but they don't fight like the guard, or like regular humans for the matter.

    Also since we're going for tourism and shit, maybe we should set some land aside for eco-tourism and animal reserves/safari

    The agreement is sealed. You're not sure if the Munitorum rep will agree to just take Chimeras and men, but you can probably work something out.

    Sisters and Ultramarines were informed that the situation was under control at the beginning of the thread. Sisters pulled off to engage Ork Raiders, but the Ultramarines simply said they'd be there shortly to “Clear up this matter” and have remained silent ever since. You get no response from them, but the Sisters ask you to pass on congratulations for prompt service to the Emperor to the Iron Dragons.


    Done, done, and done.

    Only if the planet is under Chapter control. So unless you want to hand over the Governor badge to Raltus you have to face the tax man.


    The Families didn't, but they do not equal all of the competent people available.


    He says he has several items that might be of interest, if you'll go down to the Spaceport and look over his wares again.

    Guys, I got an Idea.

    We make a movie about the overthrowing of the corrupt governer.

    Typical hollywood action movie, former govenor a ruthless tyrant, scheming along with his cronies with the evil tau for personal gain, with the resistance as brave heroes fighting to keep their world, with an obligitory romance, ending with the corrupt dictator overthrown, and a good, well functioning governemt established at the end, at the end it'll be dedicated to "the brave heroes who saved our world".

    It'll make huge money on this world, paint us AND the resistance in a favourable light, which will boost relations with them, and it'll make the ex-govoner and his cronies look even more dispicable, we can even sell distributing rights to other planets in the sector to make more money!

    It's revenue and propaganda in one neat package!

    Considering that that isn't even close to how it actually happened, and the population doesn't really approve of Propaganda, that may not sell so well on this particular planet. May be good for release into the sector at large.


    You have a special savings account set aside to pay the monetary part of the Tithe, the manpower, on the other hand...

    As Malector escorts you to the Spaceport, you notice a large group of his Armsmen being shipped out on landing craft, presumably to your PDF bases to begin training, as well as a rather unusual vehicle.

    You blink several times to make sure you were seeing it correctly; "Is that...Is that a *Land Raider*?"

    Blatantly says it's propaganda. We've got to be subtle about these things. Our population is still armed to the teeth and suspicious of authority.

    Okay, I'll admit the idea is sound, but the Ecclesiarchy (how the fuck do you pronounce that) left grudges. On the other hand, the same Ecclesiarchy would come down like a hammer if we show any measure of impiety in the production.

    Waitaminute, those small islands that are unused with the harsh climes, couldn't we turn some of them into training zones?

    Like import some deadly beasts, and dump them on a couple of islands, then we could have the pdf train there like it's a minature catachan.

    Naturally the islands would be forbidden to non-military/support personnel, to prevent poaching/theft of animals/flora.

    Care would have to be taken to only use plants/animals that couldn't overrun the entire planet though.

    Naturally this would only be implemented when we have a bunch of money around.

    We could share the islands with them, not only could we take turns, and I'm sure the islands are big enough for both unless they're tiny, but having joint excercises would not only help the PDF learn how to fight with the Astartes better and vice versa, and maybe boost relations with them and "ordinary humans".

    Have the only enterance to the islands be from air, heavily guarded, and with very few landing zones. Make the zones acessible only to military and support personnel.

    If we want to do a naval version, we could have an artifical lake created with deathworld seacreatures, somewhere freakishly remote, under military prescence.

    Wheat/Seeds (Large space for agriculture means we can grow a shitton of it, surplus food can be sold for cash or used for tithe, seeds can be used for pharmacuticals, when we tech/industrialize, the extra food will help when more people move to the cities.)

    Tomes (Knowledge is power)

    Tanks Blueprints (Ability to make tanks more important than having a single one, Astartes should protect us until we've got enough vehicles running)

    Okay, Buy the Wheat and Mystery seeds now, ask for tomes, tank blueprint and flowers, and maybe helmet for on hold.

    We'll only be out 1c on our spending money account, that shouldn't hurt too bad.

    Those flowers would be great for tourism AND we could sell the medicine.

    Anything that's not agriculture related can safely be put off for later, as our population seems rather like for industry (3b on a planet larger than earth?) Since we have so much free space, we can go all Harvest Moon up in this bitch

    Trading in Xenos slaves is not officially Heresy. It may be frowned upon by certain agencies, but no one will call in the Officio Assassinorum over it. The Tau Mercenary...less so. But remember, ity's the Tau Empire that the population hates, not the Tau themselves. Gue'vesa, Kroot, and even the occasional Fire Warrior, turncloaks all fought on their side during the 12 Years War. A renegade that decided that the Greater Good was for faggots would probably be well received.

    I forgot to mention, Grow the mystery seeds in seperate, isolated greenhouses, preferably on one of those isolated islands, that way if any of the seeds are dangerous, they can't spread.

    Equip each greenhouse with flamers, if some plants try to go catachan, torch the entire thing, better to lose 1 greenhouse than have a deathworld.

    Later we should grow the seeds in the isolated greenhouses with conventional crops and the new wheat to see if they advesely affect them.

    Only plant seeds that aren't harmfull and don't overwhelm the ecosystem outside of the greenhouses, after they've been tested throughly.

    I think we should focus on building up our agriculture and tourism for funds before focusing on industry at the moment, as they seem to need the least amount of work to get started. Tourism can be split between Gambling/Urban shit like meuseums, and Eco-tourism, like recreational fishing and the like, Eco-tourism should take very little infastructure to set up, as the attraction is the natural environs, while we use the surplus artwork for our urban works.

    Since the planet is larger than terra and less than 1/2 current earth's population, we should have vast untouched land for agriculture/tourism, which would benifit us immediately as opposed to heavy industry, which is more useful when we have a higher population, and more developed infastructure/technology.

    We should use the funds we earn from Agriculture/Tourism to fund the development for infastructure/defence/industry.

    Artifacts, relics, and artwork almost entirely imported or built on-site by hired artisans from off-planet. All on taxpayer money of course.


    Ogryns were traditionally part of both the PDF and part of the Guard Tithes before the Tau occupation. Re-instating this would be a very popular move.


    Response is positive. By selling "Shares" of the agricultural purchases to farmers you've effectively distributed the seeds across the planet to capable growers while paying virtually nothing for them. (Wheat, seeds, and Bell Flowers purchased and distributed at a cost to you of 1 C)

    Additionally, the seeds came with a detailed list of of their names and uses. None are carnivorous or poisonous. (Although a few can get you high) but there are a few items that fit that description from an expedition to a Death World a few years back...

    By wounding Malectors pride, you've gained the resources to affirm your planets friendly relationship with the nearby Eldar and have helped repair some of the massive amount of diplomatic damage this strategy caused (From the first thread, right before meeting the Resistance leaders for the first time):

    >I suggest that we appear detatched and aloof at first. Have minions present a strong demeanor. State that this is an imperial planet, and appear ready to come down on them like the fist of god. Be all gung ho and blood thirsty. Then, once the militia are all red faced and almost ready to spill blood, let us step in and actually speak as govenor rather than let minions do the talking. Be polite. Be sympathetic. Explain that your minions were presenting the official imperial creed, but that you, being a realist the magnanimous soul that you are, are willing to compromise from the official hard-line. Let them realize how GOOD they have had it till now, and that it could be SO much worse than you are making it for them.

    >stick. THEN carrot.

    End quote.

    While we're on the subject, now that the crisis is at an end the Resistance have pulled out of the city, and all but a few leaders and their bodyguard left behind to talk with you have vanished back into presumably well-armed and wary anonymity.

    I'm not really following the quest, but here's a suggestion:

    Recruit from loyal and educated men, perhaps even Adepts, to make an institution of Political Officers within the PDF. Like the Imperial Comissars, but less shooting their own men (or shooting in general), more inspiring speeches and education. They shouldn't need extensive martial training, as their chief assets would be charisma, courage and loyalty. They would be given extrajudicial powers on the battlefield, like the Comissars, but we should instruct them to prefer bonding with the troops, preaching patriotism and the Imperial creed and dealing with psychological concerns (such as preventing conflict and fostering teamwork between recruits) over coercion and punishment.

    If we can get a loyal and motivated backbone for our forces that would be well-liked by the average trooper, this could improve morale a lot without a great cost; literally all we'd need to do is select candidates carefully and pay them well.

    Good idea, let's just borrow from the Mandate of Heaven (look it up), but, again, maybe it could be called the Emperor's Plan, or the Divine Plan or something, to put a politically correct spin on the old concept of "proper way to run a realm". In fact, a lot of things from the Confucian political philosophy (such as attaching prestige and ceremonial importance to official exams and ranks) could be very useful for our administration if refluffed.

    Now that someone talks about successor Houses, i thought about trying to track down all our cousins, nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts, etc.
    And see where they are and what positions they hold.
    Perhaps extend a bit of aid here, a invitation to visit Daysimir , etc.

    jsut get some connections with as many von Braun's or people of the von Braun bloodline (there may be many more family names, we are more interested in relatives and family. the extended family.)

    We may eventually get them pulled together into a local faction. I think most are likely captains or officers. but some may be in other odd positions.

    who knows perhaps we can become something like a noble loyal to the imperium successor state.

    Or even spread the honourable loyalty cult

    You have scribes start combing through the Tomes looking for heretical (Even for this planet) material and Chaos taint. You also have your staff start laying plans for Planetary Improvement: University (30 C) and PI: No Techpriests allowed (Trains more Engineers for more complex tasks, further decreasing the need for Techpriests on your planet) (40 C, 25 if University is already built).

    The Departmento Munitorum is a practical organization, and some leeway is granted for late and partially paid Tithes. However, all debts must be paid in the Imperium, whether in men, goods, money, or blood. The battalion of Stormtroopers in carapace armor and bearing Bolter Rifles standing guard around Departmento Representative Arkhan Mirak is proof of the Imperiums dedication to this philosophy.


    Taxes collected: +25 Currency to Treasury. Trading Fleet profits collected: +15 C. Total of 40 C in Main Treasury, 63 in savings to pay monetary Tithe.

    Centauran wheat has replaced all previous varieties as both a staple and long-term storage food.

    The Herbs you purchased have become popular garden plants planet-wide.

    As long as I'm thinking along these lines, I'd better mention the worst flaw of Confucian political thinking in my eyes, which almost all authoritarian systems share (democracy can be equally bad, but usually it's more reliable). I'm talking about succession to the various high offices, and to the ruler's title itself.

    A technocratic hierarchy, with exams, bureaucratic tradition and all that, can fill the more technical posts well, but the most important offices, like those of ministers and the ruler, are political in nature, meaning that even an efficient specialist holding them can still be seen as "evil" if he implements disliked policies. The doctrine of the "Mandate of Heaven" allows displacing a corrupt or incompetent official, but if he's doing something not forbidden by it, yet widely hated, like sending conscripts to die in a far-off war instead of paying a tithe, it necessitates either rule through coercion or an "unlawful" uprising, and the doctrine is discredited. Look at modern China: people might be hesitant e.g. to speak out against censorship, but they are understanding that the government actively disregards their wishes, and they'll disrespect it in turn, so preaching "harmony" to them will fall on deaf ears and, in the absense of other legitimizing mechanisms, stability might decline.

    Therefore, we'd better take into account how vulnerable the doctrine of obeying a "virtuous" or "proper" authority can be.

    You are now producing enough Chimeras to outfit both the 350,000 strong Regiment that is currently awaiting deployment, but your enlarged PDF, which numbers 8 million soldiers and is still steadily growing. Your PDF is mechanized, but lacks both advanced heavy weapons and heavy armor support, replacing Leman Russ tanks and Heavy Bolters with the less effective Heavy Stubbers and locally manufactured Ragnarok tanks, especially considering that most of the old hardware is being shipped out with your Regiment..

    The Ragnaroks themselves have become a very popular item, Davos and his men have pooled their resources to purchase enough to supply the new Planetary Militia with armored support. The Militia consisting of every adult on the planet between the ages of 18-30 Terran years of age, equipped with lasguns and Flak Armor, and trained to the same standard as modern U.S. Marine Marksmen plus Guerrilla Warfare and specific anti-Tau training, making them better trained than most IG Regiments. The stated mission of the Militia is to defend your planet from foreign *and domestic* threats. Many of your advisers say that this is simply Davos arming himself against both the threat of another Tau incursion and you enlisting the help of the Iron Dragons to crush them.

    The bulk of the Iron Dragons forces have left the system to engage particularly troublesome pirates, Ork and Chaos raiders, and remaining Genestealer infestations elsewhere in the Sector. So far all reports have been of success and considerably safer trading routes.

    The wariness both the Resistance and the population at large regarded the Iron Dragons with has largely dissipated, as most Brothers not on active combat duty have settled on the planet and begun leading normal lives among its Citizens, many with families. One esteemed Brother-Sargent now owns a Pizza Delivery business in one of your capitols districts. Although still unsure of them, the population has begun to warm up to the Superhuman Warriors in their midst to a surprising degree.

    The remaining Iron Dragon forces on your planet have congregated at their chosen site for their new Fortress-Monastery. An old settlement and a relic of the first Human colonists during the Dark Age of Technology, the site consists of a factory and a few living quarters in sheltered in the skull of a massive prehistoric Saurian beast. The settlement itself was apparently crude and quickly thrown together, being no more technologically advanced than the rest of your planet, with most machinery rusted beyond all possibility to repair by time and icy winds, but the combination of an ancient forge in the mouth of an even more ancient Drake on the side of a mineral-rich and somewhat volcanically active mountain was taken as a sign by the Dragons. The site is also highly defensible, and was a sort of De-centralized Resistance stronghold during the 12 Years war.

    The Guard and PDF, although somewhat lacking in equipment, have been trained by three of the most expert fighting forces in the Galaxy, and have become Warriors truly worthy of bearing the banner of the Emperor.

    Trained to near-Stormtrooper levels by the Iron Dragons, and taught in the ways of sneak-and-strike and countering Tau tactics by the veteran Resistance fighters, all but the most competent RT Armsmen ceased being teachers and became students wearing different uniforms about 1/4th of the way through the training program. Indoctrinated in the ideals of determination, self-reliance, and victory at all but the greatest costs taught in the Promethean Creed, these soldiers rival even the famed Krieg Regiments in bloody-minded determination and sheer lack of fear. In the opinion of many Iron Dragons and IG vets, they may be one of the most deadly human armies in the Imperium.

    The Promethean Faith is, if you will excuse the pun, catching like wildfire among the PDF and Guard, and is spreading through the rest of the planet as a welcome legitimate alternative to the Imperial Cult. Many Citizens, previously pious but unable to reconcile the obvious falsehoods in the standard Imperial word on Xenos and Abhumans with their faith have found solace in this religion. Extolling the virtues of Independence, self-reliance, and trial by fire (Something many veterans of the 12 Years War can relate to) along with a rich background of ancient Nocturnian heroes and monsters against the Emperor, who is treated as simply a great hero and leader of men, a mighty scholar and warrior with near infinite compassion and wisdom who may grant the odd prayer through sheer Psychic might, and Vulkan, revered as a Demigod in the flesh who taught that even the Imperiums mightiest warriors learned best by living and working alongside those they protected, learning the lessons of determination in the face of adversity and humility fro those that live in such a manner every day, s that these lessons may be called upon when the Warriors need was most dire.

    The religion has even taken root among the Tech-Adepts of Daysimir. An altered form of the Promethean Faith that includes the Omnissiah as a vague power to be revered, along with a few more pragmatic elements of the Machine Cult, originally developed by the Techmarines of the Iron Dragons to reconcile their training on Mars with the Promethean Creed, it has begun to spread among the Techpriests and Engineers of your world.

    There is still no word from the Shield of the Codex, which is presumably still en route to “Clear up this matter”. No further contact has been made since that cryptic message.

    The Sisters have reported success on their mission, and say they will soon be there to take advantage of your offered hospitality to rest and repair their equipment.

    You're unsure of what the official Imperial view is on the Promethean Faith, but you know the Imperium tolerated it in the Salamanders and Iron Dragons Chapters, and presumably in the Salamanders other successors. On the other hand, the Iron Dragons were banned from a Shrine World in the middle of the celebration thrown in honor of the recruiting trials being held there on the grounds that they followed the Promethean Creed instead of the Imperial Cult.

    Boast about containing the genestealer threat with the aid of the space marines . make a boast for every day we contained them without space marines.

    Also go in very great detail on the genestealer prevention program and suggest he reports that back as a thing to be implemented on all tithe susceptible worlds as tithe refundable improvements, for those who will henceforth implement it. Surely paying for it would be better than loosing worlds to the xeno.

    then we should ask the prevention methods hold the name von Braun, and not be refunded for the implementation and development, since as former navy captain it was our duty to protect the planet.

    Sadly this impacted with our over all progress.

    This shouldn't be too uncommon, as planets that only pay with 1 item tend to be specialist planets, like a fortress or agri-world. I don't want to be stuck paying the tithe purely from 1 source, since we don't seem to be specialized in anything. (At best guess I'd say we're closest to an agri-world.)

    It was thanks to the Iron Dragons that the Genestealer conflict was resolved so easily, we could've done so purely by ourselves, of course, but with many more lives lost than with their help. (This should help us play up both the skill of the Resistance and PDF, but also the Astartes.)

    The Iron Dragons have done a lot for us, they're partially to credit to the rapid improvement of the PDF, as well as helping out the Genestealer threat.

    we have to pay 30 C.

    this means if we buy them all,

    103 - 30 (tithe) - 55 (uni) - 27 (upgrades) gives us a balance of - 9C

    if we want them all we need to be able to barter the anti genestealer technques against the guard upgrades, and not just discount- and they are worth far more than just that. he should know that at the very least.

    this would give us :

    103- 55- 30 - 19 and a balance of -1C.

    so we cannot afford everything. not without buying it on credit. or if the tithe for this time is only 20 C.

    it gets us our own techpriests. i say we get this. it might allow us to build shuttles and System monitors, invent stuff, and perhaps Reverse engineer stuff.

    if we would to get that, and have 99C for the RT that means

    99-25 , would give us only 74 for the RT.

    You currently have 99 C to spend unless my math is off.

    Wares for sale:

    230 Virus Bombs (Note that "Virus Bomb" does not equal Life Eater Virus. These are your average, garden-variety Imperial Bio-Weapons), old and have lost a lot of their potency, many have become completely inert. However, they are still very lethal. If you can hire a Magos Genetor or Bioligis then he could likely return potency to the weapons and revive a few of the dead ones (They make good decoys anyway). (40 C)

    One Baneblade: Standard Mars-Pattern Baneblade, Malector found it on a voyage, but has to let it go considering that his Warrant specifically limits him to owning one at a time, and the Inquisition is already watching him under a neutron microscope for any excuse to render him down into a Servitor. (70 C)
    >> TheGameroom !E1yyNEjdEc 03/25/12(Sun)10:29 No.18451684
    Eight particularly vicious and high-quality Combat Servitors, heavily armored and armed with a variety of nasty close-combat and ranged weapons. (14 C)

    One Shadowsword tank. Malector plans on running away from any battles that involves fighting enemy titans as fast as possible. (50 C)

    One Archaneotech Plasma Pistol. (10 C)

    One Rhino APC. (5 C)

    One Ring-mounted Digi-Weapon (Laser). (25 C)

    One Scaly Gladiator (Slave) (Necromunda-native Abhuman) absolutely loyal to its master and a vicious fighter. Pretty damn smart to boot. (10 C)

    One Mutant Vixen (Slave). Flying furry warrior with Psyker abilities and a Billion-Colored sword (It's the Warp, don't ask). Is similarly loyal, but will go on hour-long speeches about how everyone hates her because they don't understand what a super-special snowflake she is if given the slightest opportunity. Incredibly, indescribably annoying but handy in a close-quarters fight if you can handle the near-constant cries of "Fursecution!". (20 C)

    A renegade Fire-Warrior clad in a Crisis suit. Looking for a new employer that hates the Tau Empire as much as he does (Mercenary). (10 C up front, plus a regular salary and a position on your staff.)

    >> Trade Advisory Legislator 03/25/12(Sun)10:36 No.18451736
    74 C is still a lot of money to spend on the RT.

    and the power to build up our entire system is way too good to pass up. and the sooner they get bought the more they build up.

    and now that i see it I want the Tau.

    the crisis suit can get studied with the wrecked dread if we stilt have it, and the Tau can be marketed for the Sisters as a case study. To understand how the Tau lost faith in their religion and how to shake the faith of other xenos.

    after all, if you know thyself but dont know thy enemy you will lose some and you will win some (IG and PDF before combat), if you dont know yourself and neither thy enemy(or know only thy enemy ) you will loose every time (chaos is insidious to civvies) and if you know thyself and know thy enemy you will be victorious every time (inquisition level)

    Rhino and slaves are right out, we can already make freaking chimeras, and the Iron Dragons make their own shit.

    We're a naval officer, we got where we were by manauvering ships in space, so I doubt we have much skill fighting in ground combat personally, I'd stick to Botler/Carapace if we have it, rather than buying personal gear.

    The baneblade and shadowsword we put of for later, if we're need either in the immediate future, we're probably already fucked.

    We should probably appoint some skilled PDF to be our personal bodyguard, and skip the servitors, I don't really see anything from the old list I can see us needing at the moment, what new shit does he have?

    One personal Valkyrie Gunship. Gilded and decorated, very high-quality. (10 C)

    One Cyberian Granite (Significantly harder than steel) statue of Malcador the Sigillite.

    The Death-World seeds he found in the back of the Explorators freezer:

    Venus Mantrap: Vicious carnivorous plant, attempts to devour any creature that ventures too close. Grow only in tropical climes. (5 C)

    Crawler Vines: Highly dangerous carnivorous vine, grows swiftly in all climates and can cover entire continents if left unchecked. Good for use as a bio-weapon against enemy worlds. (3 C)

    Murder flowers: A stunningly beautiful flower whose petals will explode in a shower of mono-molecular shards capable of shredding Terminator armor if you stand too close to it for longer than a few seconds. (6 C)

    Pond Muck: Predatory blob of algae that resides in deep pools, lies in wait for prey before pouncing up to engulf them in an acidic embrace. (7 C)

    Other shit he dug up out of storage:

    Four Ambulls (2 C)

    One tame Squig-Hound (8 C)

    A Fra'al vase. Very pretty. (1 C)

    We're already risking being labelled a heretek with our resistance members using xenos weapons, reverse engineering tau tech doesn't help us any.

    I wouldn't be opposed to recuiting some unorthodox techpriests mind, as long as they don't put us in serious danger.

    maybe we should see the RT's new stuff before we decide anything?

    He doesn't have anything new aside from stuff he dug out of storage bins, because he never left. He's been here the whole time while his Armsmen train with your PDF. Hence the whole "You can always check back later" thing.
    >> Trade Advisory Legislator 03/25/12(Sun)10:41 No.18451777
    well, not reverse engineering.

    only studying it on how to destroy it better then.

    And perhaps build a analogue with imperial tech. i am certain a dread terminator power armour mismatch and custom fit could get the same result if we know what to aim for.
    >> Rohan Kishibe 03/25/12(Sun)10:43 No.18451784
    Hence we get some promising PDF to be our bodyguard, see how much it'd take to equip a dozen PDF in capace + hotshot lasguns, it's a show of support trust for our people, and it gets us some bodyguards for cheap. (It's gonna be WAY chearper to get some suits of carapace + hotshots than it is hiring RT mercs.)

    Naturally the bodyguard applicants will be put through extensive testing, phyiscal, loyalty, genetic screening and the like.
    >> Rohan Kishibe 03/25/12(Sun)10:45 No.18451799
    Oh, in that case, ask the munitorium guy the cost for the gear of outfitting a dozen or two stormtroopers for bodyguard perposes (Armour, Guns, nades, the works.)
    Begin recruiting bodyguards, and how much is the combined Uni+Techshrine+Academy again?
    >> TheGameroom !E1yyNEjdEc 03/25/12(Sun)10:49 No.18451829
    University +Academy is 60 C.

    Training up your civilian Engineers, Technicians, Mechanics and the like to further reduce the number of things you ABSOLUTELY NEED Techpriests to operate and repair is 40 C without uni and 20 C with. Uplifting your planet to High Imperial (Can make pretty much anything up to small starships) costs 300 C, or 600 C if you want to have native Mechanics trained in how to use the new shit instead of just bringing in more Techpriests.

    whats the cost of the statue ?>>18451750

    i say we take the plasma pistol (10), the firewarrior (many uses, and i like the idea of propaganda this one poses) (10c) ,
    The whole death world shebang (21c) (once we get a biodome on a lifeless planet , deathworld training ahoy)
    Combat servitors, in case of chaos space marine, or eversor analogue. (14 )

    and the Valkyrie, because good protected flyer (10)

    and perhaps the statue and the vase.

    without the statue it all costs 65.

    giving us a 9 c spare if we build the university full option.
    >> Trade Advisory Legislator 03/25/12(Sun)10:52 No.18451848

    10 C for Malcador. When you request to see it, the statue almost seems to be watching you from cold, stone eyes. Instead of feeling unnerved by this you get a sense of calm, aloof benevolence. As if some old friend or father figure were watching over you from very far away...

    Malector asks that you allow him to demonstrate the capabilities of the Rhino, which has been modified in some odd way according to him, and the combat prowess of the slaves before you dismiss all three out of hand.
    >> Trade Advisory Legislator 03/25/12(Sun)10:58 No.18451897
    but the maintenance of needed systems by local forces allows us great ability in infrastructure expansion, without the admech looking over our shoulders and without having a need for constant techpreist supply. meaning in case we are cut off, we dont revert technologically.

    those 20 c are a very very good investment.

    and if its 20 c then we have a budget of 79 not 74 for the RT,
    meaning the things i proposed leave us a rest of 14, sans statue.

    I'll go with
    just to speed things along.

    However make sure the Deathworld seeds are only planted on one of the deslate planets in the system, with the seeds kept under strict security.

    Make the planet it's used on have restricted access so that no one can smuggle the plants offworld.
