    16 KB Sorry for the late start, something came up. TheGameroom !E1yyNEjdEc 04/21/12(Sat)23:05 No.18809839  
    You are former Imperial Navy captain Elyssa von Braun, the Planetary Governor of the planet Daysimir, appointed 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 42 million souls (The old Governor was fastidious about keeping up population census, if nothing else of practical value. Your staff has carried on the tradition) 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. You have recently begun using the worst of these isles as harsh-environment training camps for your PDF.

    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. The general population (All adults from 18-40) have been recently inducted into a Planetary Militia and are trained to Imperial Guard standards, armed with lasguns, flak vests, and Ragnarok tanks.

    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. This was also one of the main factors in the Iron Dragons Chapter deciding to settle on Daysimir as their Homeworld.

    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. You have started recruiting and training these Abhumans into your PDF.

    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, two of which were once Imperial, (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:

    Your PDF has grown in size from 300,000 to 12 million, and numbers increase every day. They are equipped as a Combined Arms force, although lacking in Air and Sea power.

    You have begun local production of the Chimera APC and Ragnarok MBT (A Leman Russ alternative developed during the Krieg War, designed to be as simple to construct as possible, essentially a Plasteel box on treads with a cannon and Heavy Stubber) to supply your PDF and export on the inter-planetary market. The Ragnaroks initially took the place of Leman Russ tanks in much of your PDF due to sheer shortage of the latter. The Departmento Munitorum has corrected this, however, although they still struggle to supply your rapidly growing PDF. Ragnarok tanks that have been recently replaced by the more effective Leman Russ are being placed in storage; your advisers are recommending that you sell them off.

    Former Resistance leader Davos Ithkael has started a Planetary Militia, training troops up to the standards of modern day U.S. Marine Marksmen and arming them with Flak Armor, lasguns, Heavy Stubbers, Autocannons, and Ragnarok Tanks. The Planetary Government has taken command of this force and is now supplying arms and funding.

    Your PDF has been armed with a improved mark of the no.98 Lucius Pattern lasgun used by the Krieg regiments, packs more punch at the expense of using more ammunition, has been upgraded with longer range, is even more durable than the standard, and comes with an advanced targeting system that replaces the standard IG iron sights, although they are still included in case the targeting scope fails or is destroyed.

    An improved mark of Flak Armor, commonly used by the Elysian Regiments, is being distributed to your PDF, old flak armor is being kept in storage.

    The Iron Dragons have discovered one of the original Dark Age settlements on the mountainside of your greatest mountain range, a factory hidden from scouring winds in the skull of a huge fossilized Dragon-like creature buried in the mountain. The Iron Dragons have taken the discovery of a Dark Age forge located INSIDE an ancient Drake on the side of a mineral-rich mountain as an obvious sign, and are constructing their Fortress-Monastery there, incorporating the super-strong fossilized bones into their Monastery as its foundation and support structure.

    The Iron Dragons have been delighted to discover within he ancient manufactorum several Dark Age Fabricators that produce 300% more efficiently than the ones they possess, still in working condition, and the STC printout to construct some kind of automated mining and mineral refinement facility.

    The Iron Dragons have finished reverse-engineering the PDF vehicles you sent them, and you now have the patterns for most standard Imperial Guard vehicles. The Master of the Forge has been designing a new mark of tank based on combing the Leman Russ Vanquisher with an old “Abrams” tank design, apparently dating back to before the Dark Age of Technology that was discovered on a Dead World recently by the Dragons. Prototypes have shown much promise.

    Many of the Iron Dragons not on active duty have begun to lead normal lives among the people of your planet after the fashion of their Parent Salamanders; the population has come to trust and accept them, and volunteers for induction into their vaunted ranks are plentiful. One Brother-Sargent has started a pizza delivery business in your Capitol.

    The civilians that came with the Iron Dragons, mostly the families of recruits that were offered to come with their Aspirant sons and work as crewmen on the Chapter fleet (One of the reasons why the Dragons empathize so much with normal humans), have settled on the planets surface, most in the harsh icy regions near the Fortress Monastery, the rest as near the Chapter Bastions as they could.

    Centauran wheat has replaced all previous varieties as both a staple and long-term storage food. Although there have been some problems with its adaption to local soil chemistry, privately owned Agricultural labs are correcting this by cross-breeding it with local varieties.

    The Herbs you purchased, medicinal, edible, and recreational, have become popular garden plants planet-wide and are becoming a minor export item.

    Sarian Bell Flowers have become a great source of profit for wealthy business ventures specializing in rare plants, they grow well in the native soil, although they require climate-controlled greenhouses to thrive, and already they are becoming a profitable export. Many advanced Pharmaceuticals have been derived from the plant.

    Infrastructure Repair is complete.

    Orbital Defense Repair is 70% complete (Sped up thanks to Iron Dragons Techmarines)

    Orbital Docking station Amir is repaired and functional, an increase in inter-planetary trade has already been noticed.

    Dozens of defunct Orbital Defense Platforms have been towed back into orbit for repair. 6 have been brought online so far and have been outfitted with improved scanners, 12 more will be functional within the next few months.

    Your scribes have found no items of heretical nature among the old books, tomes, and fragments of text purchased from the Rogue Trader. You have loaned these tomes to your new University.

    You are constructing a combination University and Art School, along with a nearby Military Academy. Construction is 58%.

    You are fortifying your cities and building large bunkers in key points within them that are capable of holding out against entire armies of ground opponents and provide limited defense to defending forces against Orbital Bombardment.

    One of your scribes believes he has identified the location of the star system etched onto the Xenos Helm you purchased earlier, somewhere in the neighboring Sector...

    You have finished training a much more relaxed local version of the Commissar that lead by heroic example on the battlefield and preach a hybrid of a much more Freedom-Oriented Divine Mandate and a very liberal and vague version of the Imperial Creed. The normal Commissars attached to your PDF are having trouble adjusting to their presence.

    You have finished construction of statues of the Emperor and his loyalist Primarchs around your Palace. You have also built a monument to the freedom fighters whose lives were lost in the war against the Tau.

    You have integrated the former Resistance into your PDF as a Special Forces corps or as officers in the rest of the PDF. Davos Ithkael has been given a position on your staff as a military adviser.

    One of your cities was recently raided by a Chaos Warband, the Iron Dragons got info on it from Sector ommand after the battle:

    Obviously a massive warband, but since the Champion was both a greedy bastard and something of a coward he decided that, instead of invading a planet and fighting a long and grueling war he would probably lose, he would just raid planets with the force of a Chaos Army, pick a particularly wealthy but not too well defended city, loot it, take the population as slaves, and burn it to the ground relying on brute force, strength in numbers, and getting in and out fast to allow them to essentially steal a city. After his Raider (Modified with expensive Stealth gear to be virtually undetectable by all but the most advanced scanners, the go-to ship for getting his forces to and from a planet fast) was taken his forces started to lose what little cohesion they had just in time for the Iron Dragons to Deep Strike 9/10ths of their entire Chapter directly into the combat zone, followed by missile bombardment and the Guard moving in as the Anvil to the Iron Dragons hammer. They were slaughtered, and Chapter Master Raltus Ar'kryn literally tore their Champion into pieces. Now Warlord Kraktor is pissed because you exterminated his most disciplined, largest, strongest, and most loyal warband, killed one of his best Champions, and deprived him of his primary source of Tithed loot and slaves. All the other raiders are pissed at you for killing one of their own, but aren't going to risk their necks trying for you after what happened to the Fist of Chaos Warband.

    Your population has gained Hatred: Emperors Children and Hatred: Chaos Worshipers.

    You have received a text transmission from Ghaldmoris (Daemon World) that says your transgression will be remembered. Enemy Gained: Ghaldmoris Raiders. Enemy Gained: Warlord Kraktor.

    Reputation gained: Biter. You successfully eliminated the largest and most feared Chaos Warband in the sector, future raiders will steer clear from you.

    The Iron Dragons have claimed all of the Astartes gear, the Imperial Guard gear will be turned over to you once it has been cleansed of Chaos taint. The Warbands fleet has been captured and their ships are being similarly cleansed. All but the Stealth Raider, which you will keep as the beginning of the Daysimir SDF, will be turned over to Sector Command.

    Various construction projects: 2% complete (It would take me half an hour to list them all)

    The local Sisters of Battle Covenant has established an outpost in the ruined city to ensure that that all traces of Chaos taint have been removed. They are willing to negotiate making the outpost permanent (Your population won't like this very much).

    It's a Light Cruiser that has been so heavily modified, not even counting Chaos corruption, that it stands in a class all its own.

    The Shield of the Codex.

    The greeting goes better than you expected. An observer reports that both parties are currently making their way to the surface. Apparently the Ultramarines received messages from an intimidating number of Chapters (Including the Space Wolves and Salamanders), Navy Splinter Fleets, Imperial Guard Regiments, Skitarii Legions, and Titan Legions that the Iron Dragons are a trustworthy and loyal Chapter, and that engaging them in open combat would be a bad idea for many, many reasons.

    The recycling/pollution improvement could likely be somewhat allieved with an information campaign to increase recycling/reduce pollution, increased fines for pollution and subsides for more enviromentally safe methods/research, I for one would like to build the mag rails, as having multiple starports in our cities seems like a way to increase our vulnerabilty to foreign infiltrators, I'd much rather increase the size of our main starport, allowing it to handle more traffic, and putting all filtering all potential subversives through one point. (Naturally the spaceport's security would also get a huge upgrade.)

    Check as to the reason why our advanced sensors failed, they're specifically designed to detect sealth ships.

    WAY before. Pastan speech.

    Immediately after finishing dealing with the attack, if a bit of redaction/time-travel/whatever is possible, or ASAP, inform all visual and audio communications networks that you are making a planet-wide address to the populace.

    On-camera, sit down at whatever passes for your office desk with the statue of Malcador the Sigilite in the background, wearing your naval uniform.

    "My fellow citizens, good evening. A short while ago I ordered our Planetary Defense Force's entry into the city of Rtoas to aid in the elimination of hostile targets present therein, which consisted of the Fist of Chaos warband out of Ghaldmoris. The city militia had bravely and effectively met the attack, and the PDF and Iron Dragons detachments entered the area as swiftly as they could to neutralize the enemy's unwarranted, unprovoked, and cold-blooded ending of the lives of some ninety-seven thousand civilians, militia, and military personnel and sack of much of the city, which included the destruction of the City Hall with its flags and symbols of the people and government of Daysimir."

    >> Editor 04/22/12(Sun)00:51 No.18811222


    "The ordered counteroffensive of the PDF, with the assistance of the Iron Dragons and with the incredible sacrifice made by local militia, was successful in its portion of the joint strike against the raiders and culminated in the utter annihilation of the warband. Were it not for the known capacities of our world's citizenry in repelling hostile forces with far greater quantities of war materiel and strike capacity, I would go so far as to say that the militia's success was incredibly surprising; it is, I am assured, nearly unheard of for the sacrifice of citizen militia to be as harshly felt by our enemies, for which I can only salute the residents of Rtoas, living or dead, for their part in this effort. The Iron Dragon and PDF response came in as fast as possible at a time after the initial incursion and ended the conflagration, and they along with Adepta Sororitas personnel from the Order of Sworn Swords have worked to assist survivors, secure the battlefield, cleanse the city of persistent threats to body and soul."

    >> Editor 04/22/12(Sun)00:53 No.18811244

    "I feel it would likely be appropriate at this time to express our gratitude for the incredible effort and sacrifice made by the citizens and militia, which broke the momentum of the Raider incursion when all it might be expected to do on other worlds was serve as a cushion for their landing, and to the Iron Dragons, without whom the counteroffensive might have stretched on far longer and the losses been far higher and the Emperor's Will been much harder to carry out, and to the personnel and tacticians of the PDF whose role was indispensable in putting these traitors to the sword. In addition, gratitude is due to the Order of Sworn Swords for their aid. It should be noted that casualties were incurred by the PDF including the special operations units active in the counteroffensive and by the Iron Dragons themselves, God rest their souls, as well as an Order member who died in the line of duty while seeking to contain dangerous enemy equipment. Decorations will be extended to these as well as to the great many in the militia who gave life and limb to secure our world."

    "I must express my contrition regarding the strategic oversight that allowed this band of traitorious rabble to bypass the bulk of our world's defenses and pressing their attack.

I will encourage those among the citizenry who are so inclined to give donations towards this effort, in terms of financial assistance or labor, with litened tithes and ready construction contracts and other work in the area for the duration of reconstruction and perhaps beyond. While I am confident that this is far from necessary, it is too rare that generosity is rewarded in this existance, and so I will act to correct it in my own small way."

I would propose that the name of every known victim and veteran be carved somewhere on the surface of this memorial, to preserve a record of their deeds, and in this matter as in the rebuilding of the city I will gladly contribute personal funds now and in the years to come, and will seek the assistance of those capable of doing so in ensuring that the finances are not an issue. In addition, I would ask the populace to consider renaming the city Raider's Grief, in remembrance of how the enemy was shattered and made desperate in its grip, and the port after Saint Pius to commemorate how the local militia made a great sacrifice so like his own, regardless of the hopelessness of the situation. The enemy's captured raider, which will be the first of a number of vessels in our system defense fleet, will likely be named after a militia hero from this conflict."

    Personally I'm against the Sister's method of fighting, while pious and zealous, their battle tatics leave a lot to be desired, honestly I wouldn't be suprised if the resources for the Church Millitant would be better spend having more effective frontline troops.

    Remember we already have Spess Mehrens here, why would we want to devote resources to their less effective counterpart.

    Our style of combat seems to involve alot of ambush tatics and hit-and-run, and say what you will about them, but the Church Millitant isn't known for subtlety, the Astartes at least have to go through a service period as scouts.

    Personally I wouldn't be opposed to them recruited, but I'd tell them up front that we'd be putting our military resources into better supplying our PDF, and we'd only be supplying them with a small amount of war materials, they are of course, free to use whatever they can raise to suppliment their own forces.

    The Sisters of Battle - the fighting arm of the ecclesiarchy - are the very definition of fanatical. These guys are nuns with guns, they are handy as all heck when you want a heretic burned at the stake and I can totally see why having them around would be handy, but the downside would be that the liberal setup we have going here will be more closely monitored and we might be unintentionally driving a wedge between the hard line conservatives on planet and our mostly liberal population.
    Don't forget the huge benefits the Promethian Creed gives us. The Iron Dragons are pretty well personally training our soldiers and it seems like the best way to integrate the Chapter that is going to live here from now on with the local populace.

It would be run by local administrators and the Ministorum/Imperial Creed/etc stuff would be replaced with Promethean Cult indoctrination and loyalty to Daysimir and the Imperium on a philosophical basis as well as a non-secular one.

    Change the tone to approaching the Sisters about these matters, not to announcing decisions; the outpost is not permanent yet, and need not be permanent, but the Sisters are welcome to stay, however, if they do stay they WILL be approached for training exchange, etc, and supported such that they can continue their duties off-world, not to mention given opportunity to relocate to the district with the most Imperial Cult followers to ease recruitment, etc..

    Asking the Sisters to not prosecute the Promethean Cult worshippers is like asking them to keep breathing. The Ecclesiarchy has already recognized it, the =][= doesn't persecute it, end of story.

    The SOB presence is currently maintaining order and helping to cleanse the ruins of the stricken city of chaos artifacts, traps, etc. Leave them there so they can purge cult remnants for now.

    IN FUTURE, IF they stay, giving them a base near their recruiting pool would be good for them.

    Moving them OFFWORLD eventually would give our citizens the assurance of being free from direct Ministorum scrutiny, and give the SOB order a GREAT place to train for zero-g and micrograv fights, shipboard combat, etc, and generally train better Celestains and Seraphim.

    The closest we will ever come to creating a SOB order of our own is the creation of a Crusader House, which is what the SOBs themselves very nearly are - they have just had =][= and Ecclesiarchial backing for a long time. Crusaders may well have originated in the Age of Apostasy, depending on how you interpret conflicting 40K sources.

    Bolters would require High Imperial level, one level above your current Tech level. Powered Armor, both Space Marine and normal human, requires High Imperial +, the next level after High Imperial, also what you need for mobile Anti-Orbital batteries, Knight Titans (If an Order decides to settle here), and building small starships.

    Build armed Patrol Boat fleet next time you can afford it for 8 C?

    Sell Ragnarok stockpiles for 340 C? (You have a fucking ton of them)

    You have 2 C in your Personal Account.

    Orbital Defense Platforms are normally not designed for habitation, although they can be upgraded with a small permanent Garrison to defend against boarders.

    The reaction is highly positive, especially the implied planning for a strike against the Daemon World, which is something the Iron Dragons are already trying to gather support for in the Sector. (+10 to popularity)

    The Genestealers were identified as remnants that had been lurking around the Palace (One of the few places not searched) plotting a suicidal revenge strike. It's believed that they were the last.

    Generic screening in the Spaceport has already been implemented.

    While neither the population or the Iron Dragons wouldn't like having a militant Ecclessiarchy presence (Or any presence at all) the real danger lies in how the Sisters will respond to the population. Tensions are already running high after 12 Mutants discovered in a refugee shelter were lined up against a wall and shot.

    Tanks and military:

    We should put the MILLIONS of Ragnaroks to a number of uses:

    -Gifts to the Ultras, just as a 'hi let's be nice' thing. They have a huge empire to run, they might put them to good use if they're not repulsed by the design.
    -Gifts to the Order of Sworn Swords, maybe they have support units somewhere that can use 'em. Or Repentia or something.
    -Gifts to local sector nobles, and to the Lord Sector if he wants 'em as gratitude for helping with planetary improvements.
    -EXCHANGES with neighboring worlds/the Munitorum for things we need. The exchange rates will be terrible, but it'll be a start to get:
    *Hydra tanks
    *Sea navy designs
    *Other shit we need

    After that's exhausted, sell 'em except for a half million to sit in our reserves just in case everything else goes to shit and put the money from sales in the government purse for other projects.

    We have a whole long list of shit that needs to be done before our TALENTED military is anywhere near meeting its potential in terms of being strategically and tactically effective.

    We have no artillery to speak of, for one fuckin' thing.

    You are evidently not understanding either the level of training our troops already have or the effectiveness of the mental conditioning implied in zeal and faith in 40K.

    Our PDF rivals the Death Korps of fucking Krieg, bro. We have nine million well trained troops. Their training is among the best in the Imperium, end of story.

    This does not prevent WELL-TRAINED CHAOS CULTS from springing up among our well-trained troops.

    The populace is ambivalent and tolerant towards the Promethean Cult, and does not like the Imperial Creed, as per archives.

    The MILITARY likes the Promethean Cult.

    The Military numbers in the tens of millions max. The populace numbers in the billions.

    The math here is that less than a single percent, meaning 1% of our people, like the Promethean Cult.

    The rest are just fucking heathens that can be converted at the sword or whatever else.

    While neither the population nor the Iron Dragons would like having a militant Ecclessiarchy presence (Or any presence at all) on planet, the real danger lies in how the Sisters will respond to the population. Tensions are already running high after 12 Mutants discovered in a refugee shelter were lined up against a wall and shot. None were tainted by Chaos, and one was a nine year old girl from a middle-class family that was born with six fingers on each hand.

    Your trip to the Spaceport is surrounded by a roaring crowd that crams the street from building to building and lines the rooftops, the stamping of feet and wordless chanting follows you to the walls of the Spaceport, and can still be heard as you meet a party of shining giants in blue armor.

On the other mutants they simply commended her for diligent service.

    Captain Lucidus Culus of the Ultramarines gives you a smile that looks like it's struggling to turn into a superior smirk. "I do too, Governor." He neglects to introduce his Honor Guard.

    As you walk and fill him in on the situation, his universal response is to be condescending and superior without directly insulting you or the Iron Dragons. He goes as far as to say that the work load as Governor must be heavy, as any Captain worth her salt would have immediately seen the security hole that having all of your sensors on the same side of the planet and absolutely nothing on the other presented. After this another Marine, presumably one of the other two Captains, crackles over his suit com and tells him to tone it down before grumbling something about seniority being Groxshit.

    He does, however, agree to tour your Palace and other sites and visit the combat zone. You guess this is most likely to gather information. When you reach the Palace he looks upon the statues, particularly the station of Roboute Guilliman at the right hand of the Emperor. He frowns for a moment before asking where you put the statue of Vulkan.

    When you respond "On the opposite side of the Palace" he smirks for a second before the Chaplain says "In other words, opposite of the Emperor?"

    After this, his condescending remarks reduce significantly, but the scowl stays on his face throughout the tour and the long Valkyrie ride to the newly renamed city of Raiders Grief.

    While he continues to keep up a mask of superiority and aloofness, the stare of the statue of Malcador the Sigillite seems to have troubled him deeply, and he cannot hide his surprise at the obvious evidence at how hard your Militia fought against the Chaos incursion, and his surprise at the number of Traitors involved. He had obviously assumed that a normal Warband had somehow managed to destroy one of your cities, instead of a marauding army. He also cannot help but smile at the report, backed up by the Munitorum, that 78% of all casualties had died with some kind of weapon in hand, or obviously trying to engage Chaos soldiers in hand-to-hand combat or with vehicles.

    He is...somewhat more pleasant on the trip back, although Victarion (Head Fire Priest/Chaplain) barely restrains himself from reaching out to strangle the gleaming Captain when he comments about how unfortunate it must have been to have missed the invasion of his homeworld while mammoth-hunting in the smuggest tone of fake sympathy you have ever heard.

    Have the statue of Malcador the Sigilite brought into the room now, claim it is there to bless any such meetings with the Saint's wisdom and to grant all involved strength of the sort that Malcador showed in executing his duties to the Emperor.

    Put it behind you so that anyone looking at you has to see it at least in their peripheral vision.

    And possibly get a recording device in here, publicly, to keep official business on the record and not be like your predecessor. Inform anyone that questions this that it is to differentiate you from your irresponsible predecessor and out of respect for the gravity of official dealings.

    Then, respond as follows:

    "My Lords, I am afraid that the lack of formalization before the untimely death of my predecessor, in part due to the insult in question being dealt to your chapter - an insult that I think I have done much to undo with homage towards your own hallowed Primarch, though I will presently offer gifts that will do more - this lack of formalization came at a severely inopportune time."

    "What world would not like to be a part of Ultramar? Frankly, I could think of no world that would not benefit. But I am afraid that fate had something different in store, in the form of the Iron Dragons' arrival. As I understand the matter, the Dragons are, like yourselves, given to certain powers and subject to certain restrictions laid down by the Emperor himself and the Senate of Terra, including the creation of arrangements and agreements with regards to recruiting worlds and the government of same."

    "As the Iron Dragons are a worthy chapter and are seeking to recruit from and defend this world, and as the Senate of Terra does not give Ultramar precedence over other chapters in this matter to my knowledge and oversees all matters of this sort, I am given to understand that it would be a matter of having the masters of both chapters make their case directly to the Senate, under the shadow of the Golden Throne itself - unless, of course, you were to entrust them with the protections of this world as its own inhabitants eagerly have done."

    How about taking a look at the planetory records of this 'deal' and seeing if this guy is talking out of his ass or not.
    Not to mention that this guy doesn't have a leg to stand on since in order for the 'deal' to be in effect it would have had to be sealed, signed and done. Since even Captain Cuntus there admits that it was not sealed he has to be a massive arrogant prick to think that this 'deal' is going to go forward and that the Iron Dragons will just up and leave.

    He frowns: "Well, we were hung up over certain negotiations about forgiving back taxes owed to the Imperium...But aside from that things were progressing well, until it started raining. After the incident he left several messages for us at Macragge, the last one pledging to join Ultramar and pay off back taxes himself, plus 10% for our troubles and a pledge to build statues of our honored Primarch across the planet, which would NOT disintegrate, and that it only remained for us to acknowledge his pledge of fealty, which "Stands whether my Lords deign to acknowledge my humble servitude or not". Governor Rodoris struck me as a perfectly competent individual, and a faithful man of the Imperium. I see no reason why you feel entitled to throw out agreements he made simply because he failed to have the military capacity to suppress a rebellious population."

    He leans across the table scowling: "And while the Emperor did NOT give us precedence over other Space Marine Chapters, we DO have precedence over Chapters settling on OUR TERRITORY after grievously insulting us several times in the past."

    Do your best to put yourself right next to the statue of the Sigilite when you respond to him so he can't avoid its gaze.

    "My Lord, I was informed by my betters that the proof of the authority of a Governor answerable to the Priesthood and Senate of Terra is directly related to that governor's capacities to deal with rebellion - or preferentially prevent it - while paying his tithe, which is the very embodiment of loyalty to the Emperor himself. However, I feel it would be wise to ensure you were well informed of the nature of these incidents at their source, wherein you will be able to make the best of observations. You have seen for yourself the response of this population to a chaos incursion containing hundreds of traitor marines and know of their history in throwing off the yoke of the alien, and as such I cannot fathom any claim that this world's populace would rebel against a reasonable governor."

    "I believe I have no end of evidence of this governor flouting the will of the Imperium at large on a number of matters, and as such I would ask why you felt that Ultramar was dealing with anything other than a confidence man working to deface your great Realm by trying to use it as a shield for himself, distract its military and your fellow brothers with rebellion after rebellion right down to the last man until it was a worthless crater incapable of paying tithes to anyone for anything, and seeking only the next escape for himself."

    "I myself must take my predecessor's ousting by the Administratum to be the very word of the Priesthood and the Senate of Terra on the matter of his worth. As such, I cannot follow your train of thought - I see only the fortune of avoiding shame and grief for Ultramar in his ousting, as he prevented whomever took this world into your Realm from bearing the criticism of his peers. As such, I cannot but throw out his entire attempt to deceive Ultramar into taking this world, and therefore his safety, under its aegis - meaning that this was not then your territory after all, a statement I must temper with the record of Ultramar's lack of involvement in the scouring of the hated Tau from this world - which as I understand it is within the patrol route of so many void-pirates, alien foes, traitors, heretics, and other dangerous scum that I could hardly be convinced to believe it is along your patrol routes, for great Ultramar would not tolerate these."

    Shortly after this statement, when the angry shouting of the Iron Dragons Honor Guard has died down, several burly Ogryns haul the statue into the room. It's presence obviously discomforts greatly.


    To your knowledge he was not executed, although you don't believe that the Imperium knows about his dealings with the Tau.


    The Parade of evidence begins, from documents proving massive embezzlement, tax evasion, and corruption to the damning evidence of his attempt to hide behind the Tau, even going up to the point of adding Tau-supplied Kroot Enforcers to his police forces, in the form of transcripts intercepted by the Resistance, to Tau weapons caches and Xenos-Artifacts seized by the same. While all the while the Captain sits under the judging stare of Malcador the Sigillite in Stone.


    After this, he sits and thinks for several minutes, eventually he responds with what you believe to be the only thing you can come up with.

    "Concerning these accusations of relations with the Tau, I'm going to assume that you have some evidence aside from the testimony of reported Xenos sympathizers?"

    "It occurs to me that it may be that perhaps the rains washing away the badly-wrought likeness of the visiage of your Primarch may themselves have been a symbol of Rodoris' lack of trustworthiness. It is said that the handiwork of a servant of enemies of the Emperor cannot manage to conceal itself with symbols of officialdom and fealty before the true faithful, such as yourself and the lords of Ultramar - that such things shine through plainly in their falseness. I cannot deny that it says much that his effort to pay homage to the great Gulliman resulted in the plainest disaster, and was insulting to behold or even hear of."

I believe he, along with sources from the Holy Inquisition, will be glad to verify these claims for a Lord of Ultramar such as yourself. As for the matter of the hated Eldar, treacherous as they are, the Iron Dragon presence on this world should see to the matter of any pirates and the Rogue Traders who visit us regularly are under proper observation by Inquisitors as I am given to understand matters, so any presence of Eldar or interaction with them would soon garner their attention.

    From the transcripts that have been brought to you, you see that the only mention of the Resistance referred to them as "A filthy rabble only slightly superior to the rest of the peasantry, and I've heard rumors of dealings with the foul Xenos known as the Eldar that continued long after their already questionable work alongside them during the latest Skirmish with the pathetic Empire of the Tau."

    You see that later, in a transmission he foolishly neglected to delete from his archives, he lauded the Tau Empire as "A rising power in the Galaxy, destined to encompass all in a new age of science and progress under the benevolent guide of the blessed Ethereals."

    Exactly. Going to try to shove this down his throat in dialogue.
    Show the copy of Rodoris' comment to the Captain and everyone else there.

    "I cannot but put this before you, my Lord. Perhaps this fool thought he could embroil Ultramar in some reenactment of the events in the Damocles Gulf, and bring shame upon them. I am glad to expose him for the cheat and saboteur he was, and will caution against any machination that may lie in wait here, whatever trap he sought to spring against the Ultramarines. It is plain enough he was not meaningful in his claims of fealty to you and the Realm you represent; it is more clear that conflict over territory and duty would only serve his purpose. As such, I am motivated to place a moratorium on the fealty of this world changing hands at all, lest the new vassal finds himself so beset upon and embroiled that he is unable to make this world to serve our master on Terra entirely."

    If the captain seems to accept this:

    "I will gladly offer you a modest gift, my Lord, to make up for your troubles - would a tonnage of Adamantium and a number of Ragnarok-pattern tanks be of any use to your chapter or the Auxilia of Ultramar or in reinforcing other worlds you watch over?"
