Welcome back to Desert Island Maid Quest. You are deep in the bowels of the sunken spacehulk with Ecologist Yuriko and Stalker Ava. After spraying and praying against a poltergeist, dodging burner anomalies and finding evidence of Genestealer activity, you have made it the command room in an attempt to shutdown the malfunctioning shield generator. The Gellar field has inverted trapping bits of warp immaterium in the hull. You were about to travel down to the generator but a Snork decided to play "Faces and Deckplates" with your skull. Previous Threads1-9: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27186819/10: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27221405/ 11: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27285036/12: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27334483/Char Sheets and Maps:http://imgur.com/VyRLv5g,rNeQDjE,7jXo1Sg,H7WzNKk,5mNoTvL,a0zaYQL,JqvnW51
Where we last left off...You ask Yuriko if she can pull up any more information on the ship, its logs and information on cutting power to the field remotely or on site. She greedily taps away at the data slate. You do your best to cut through her broken english as she rattles of information. The ship is missing almost the entirety of its log. From what Yuriko can piece together the ship was drifting along when something caused its shield to invert trapping large sections of warp within its confines and tearing the ship to pieces. This section of the rather small hulk survived as it was closest to the generator. The little pockets of anomalies are those trapped bits of warp energy. The ship drifted until something pulled it near Earth, it exited into normal space and it crashed into the ocean. The field generator needs to be shut down manually by spinning down its reactor. The process is straight forward once you cut through the pages and pages of machine spirit bullshit. You eject the 4 control rods and pump out the fuel. You could do it from this console but something has shut off the control paths from the core itself. As you are speaking with Yuriko you hear a muffled snarl like a lion behind you as something heavy collides with your back. A gas mask tube slaps against your back as strong fingers grasp your neck. "SNORK!" Ava shouts....Better act fast Chosen One!
>>27367074Turn around and hug him.Bear hug.
>>27367074Reverse the situation and give him a german suplex!
Rolled 57, 13, 67, 77 = 214>>27367164You struggle against the rotting fingers clamping around your neck and spin around to grab the Snork. Blood sprays from its frayed mouth as it snarls in your face. You grip the beast about waist and flex with all your strength and lift....Can he do it folks!? Can the Chosen One smash the Snork and win the Pirpyat title belt!?Roll Athletics to find out!First 3 1d100s decide it. Number to beat is above!
>>27367458Yes, yes he can do it
The Snork lets out a high pitched whine as your beefy arms, strengthened from years of marathon fap sessions, crushes the mutants torso. You lock eyes with Ava for a moment before looking back at the Snork. "I will break you" you breathe as you flip back and smash the mutant's skull onto the corner of a nearby console. Glass and teeth go flying. The Snork is stunned but still breathing.Ava and Yuriko have their turn. What do they do?16/4 = 4 DamageSnork at 16/20 HPAva - 40HP 0MPYou - 20HP 0MPYuriko - 20HP 10MP
Rolled 3>>27367639They keep back.WE GOING TO SOLO THEM
>>27367639Yuriko needs to freeze it's legs so Ava can get a good shot in.
>>27367639Yuriko should should hit it with a freeze shot, hopefully damaging and freezing it to the floor. Then Avacan get an easier head shot since its movement should be limited
Rolled 82, 45, 40, 43 = 210>>27367801You step back from the mutant to give Yuriko a shot at freezing it in place. You should to Ava to take the shot on it, but she is already leveling her streetsweeper. The vanes on Yuriko's shoulder cannon freeze over as energy pools within the muzzle and ejects as a ripple ball of pure cold. The shot lobs towards the stunned Snork.Combined Ava and Yuriko Skill gives 7 1d100s.Highest to beat is above
Rolled 68, 85, 32, 3 = 188>>27368046The ice slams into the Snork's waist. It screams and claws at the growing ice as it is frozen in place. Ava laughs as she pumps a dart round into the immobilized mutant. The slug rips into Snork's shoulder and tears its arm free. Blood and ice spray all over the control room. The Snork is enraged and launches at Ava, it's single arm outstretched. Ava Athletics roll.First 2 1d100s to dodge. 22/4 = 6 Damage Snork at 10/20 HPAva - 40HP 0MPYou - 20HP 0MPYuriko - 20HP 10MP
Rolled 91, 58, 21, 97 = 267>>27368208The Snork flies bast Ava, missing by mere inches, either unsteady from the loss of its arm or it's caved in face. The Mutant lands a few yards away, tucking into a roll that leaves a smear of blood in its path as ragged flesh rips away on the deck bolts. It is not looking to well. It spins to face the party and angrily grunts at you, but it doesn't back down.The turn is yours.
>>27368252Well good thing we weren't rolling agaist these.Let the snork see the light...OF OUR GUN
>>27368313Nothing to do but this.
>>27368252everyone open fire
Rolled 29, 44, 20, 73 = 166The barrel of your gun begins to glow as the adapted lasrifle beam emitter charges. A thin aiming sight paints itself on the body of the Snork. Ava racks another dart round into the chamber and Yuriko charges another freeze shot. The Snork hesitates as all three of you open fire on the suka. Time to end this.Single party roll. 10 1d100s please, from combined skills.
Rolled 65>>27368541All out attack!

Rolled 98>>27368541EMPRAH GUIDE US
>>27368621you are truly blessed by he on the golden throne
>>27368621How foolish I was to doubt.
>>27368621The Lord High Emperor truly shines upon you this day. You also just made the exact amount of damage on a 8d6 . The foul mutant will rue the day it was spawned upon the earth by foul ruinous powers. Yuriko shoots first, pinning it against a nearby computer console. A shower of sparks sprays out, searing a chunk out of the Snork. Ava is next, the finned dart further securing the mutant to the wall. You calmly stride up the fetid thing and jam your rifle into its howling mouth. You wonder what is under that gas mask and lift the plastic raggedy thing away, but quickly put the mask back on. You didn't want to know that badly. With a flash of light the mutant is no more, its head vaporized in an instant. Emperor be praised. The world is one mutant purer.+20 Xp for purging the mutant. "Good shooting boss. We make a Stalker of you yet. Shall we go?"Snork is dead. Do you leave for the Gellar generator?Ava - 40HP 0MPYou - 20HP 0MPYuriko - 20HP 0/0MP
>>27368757Yes. Let us finish this
>>27368757Let's head for the Gellar generator, but I'm curious about one thing."Yuriko, while you were on that datapad, did you happen to catch the name of the ship? Or any mission logs?"I'm suspicious about something.
>>27368793She taps a few buttons on the console. "Damn" she says. You laugh. "Well its okay. I'm surprised this much has remained functional after the crash." She waves at you, giggling. "No master. Ship name Damn. Silly name." Ava punches the door console to the generator. "We go now. You two can have tea party when home." And takes off down the corridor. The two of you follow.
>>27368990If the ship is named 'Damn', I wonder what 'Bat.....to' we saw on the side of the ship was indicating?
>>27368990Remember to throw bolts; not just to check for anomalies but also for genestealers and bloodsuckers.
>>27369081It might have been painted on there to fool custom agents. I suspect this ship was involved in illegal research.
After hucking a few bolts down the corridor you all press against the door. Ava holds up three fingers and counts down. The door opens with a hiss. A loud sound buffets you as something whirls around in the room. Large spines protrude from the walls, occasionally emitting a purple spline of energy. The generator sits above a black pool of ferrofluid, its three rings orbiting the core. When the rings align a low pulse emits and knocks you back slightly, a slight click and grind emits and the rings begin to orbit again. A small bubble of swirling matter drifts about the room, catching the energy arcs from the spines. The reactor room opens up behind you. What do you do?
>>27369215The Gellar Field should shut down when we scram the reactor. Let's make our way to the reactor room, keeping to the walls.
>>27369215Have Ava throw one in the direction of the engine door.Then if nothing happens, go towards the door. Pray that it isn't locked.
>>27369300>>27369335The three of you shuffle along the walls, keeping clear of the onyx pool and the drifting orb. Your eye catches the generator for a moment and something dark screams in the back of your mind. This thing is unnatural and the sooner it's shut down the better. You come to the reactor room door, but its strange. The metal doesn't match the shield room metal and the door opens with a mechanical wheel. A plaque on the wall is pitted and scored. "Wave....tor" You crack the door and Ava tosses in a bolt. You hear a dull thud and some cursing. A sinister voice calls out. "The master bids you enter, but please keep your bolts to yourself." You peek through but don't see anyone. The reactor is a long cylindrical object split in the middle. The two halves counter rotate and are generating some form of energy. There is a control panel on the upper level. The room is dark and you can't make out anything below the panel.How do you respond?
>>27369530Shine flashlight through to scan room and ask who you are speaking with
>>27369577Seconding this.And that's a Wave Motion Reactor. Looks like someone was a busy little heretek, and bolted an Imperium destroyer onto the Yamato.
>>27369530Let's try politeness, first. Maybe they're nice people. Yeah, not even I believe that."I am glad to see Ava was not the only one to survive the crash. Would you kindly step into the light so I know who I am speaking to? Or at least, give a name to yourself and your master?"
>>27369577Ava clicks on a flash light and scans the room. You shout, "I am glad to see Ava was not the only one to survive the crash. Would you kindly step into the light so I know who I am speaking to? Or at least, give a name to yourself and your master?" The voice calls out from the floor of the reactor room. "We are down here. Our master would like to parlay with you." The light falls upon a tall chair, built up among various debris, next to ti is a tall gaunt man, older and wearing wizard vestments. He shakes his staff at you to signal you. He bends over and and listens to a squat and lumpy man seated on the throne. A faint gurgling noise comes from the fat man's throat. The gaunt man stands up. "You will you come down and speak with us?
>>27369715does ava have any nades
>>27369715I'm thinking that since we need to shut down the reactor anyway, we should have Ava throw a couple incendiary grenades into that group and kill them all.I don't like this, I think they're genestealers.
>>27369715Probably should ask why they are nelow the floor in the reactor room of all places first.
>>27369781Wait, I have questions for this man.>>27369715"Can you guys hear the hive mind? Or the Bug Father or whatever you call it?Oh, and which one of you was stalking us? Or was that a certain third member of your company who has yet to come out of the shadows?"I actually think they were experimenting with Genestealers and they ended up with something they couldn't control. I'd wait for further information, but I'm of the suspicion we won't just walk out of here with Ava in tow.
>>27369816The story is probably pretty embarrassing if the cult has been reduced to the patriarch and magus. There should be at least 2 dozen hybrids on this ship.
>>27369781>>27369802You quietly ask Ava if she has grenades. "Da, I have flash, frag, incendiary, gas.." She pauses to pat at the large red cylinder hanging from her pack. "This red thing. Look like propane but is not." You nod.You call back to the gentlemen. "What are you guys doing down there." The gaunt man shrugs. "Trying to survive. After they cleared most of our family from the ship we went into hiding. Our children told us the humans found some lost human tech and brought it into the hulk. Something went wrong and the ship tore itself to pieces. We collected the survivors and brought them into our family and live here where there is space."You scan the flashlight around trying to look for anyone else in the room but keep them talking for time. "Can you guys hear the hive mind? Or the Bug Father or whatever you call it?"The fat man chortles and gurgles at the gaunt man. The tall man speaks. "You know of our people, but are not family. Come down and we will teach you. Do not fear, the family loves all.""Oh, and which one of you was stalking us? Or was that a certain third member of your company who has yet to come out of the shadows?"The gaunt man shrugs. "One of our children perhaps. They do so love to play. Won't you come down?"Well what do you do?
>>27370005"Sorry, but no. I mean, your bio-augments aren't bad, if you'd actually give them to us instead of only passing it on to my offspring. And honestly, I'd rather get assimilated by the Borg."Have Ava throw down the red cylinder at the patriarch and we'll shoot the magus with the flashlight, and Yuriko freezes the doorway from the Command Deck to prevent anything from coming up behind us.
>>27370005Theory proven wrong."Yeah, I know of you guys. You're the kids of a bunch of space nomads from stars long gone dark and cold. But personally, I picture my children looking a bit different, you know?Quite a few with fox ears. Maybe a couple with pale skin and fangs." Glance at Yuriko and Ava. "Etc, etc."Then prime a grenade. "Sorry, but I only save the cute ones."
You motion for Ava to throw in the red cylinder, whatever it is. Along with a few frags. Yuriko works to pour the remaining energy she has into a shot that will freeze the corridor leading to the shield generators. Carefully you aim the SAR at the throne and call out. The ground around the chair begins to lift and churn with the sound of fingernails grinding against metal. You call out. "Sorry, but no. I mean, your bio-augments aren't bad, if you'd actually give them to us instead of only passing it on to my offspring. And honestly, I'd rather get assimilated by the Borg."The magus waves his wand. "So be it. We were getting hungry anyway." The piles of trash on the ground erupt as no less than a dozen genestealers erupt towards you. You are unfazed."Yeah, I know of you guys. You're the kids of a bunch of space nomads from stars long gone dark and cold. But personally, I picture my children looking a bit different, you know? Quite a few with fox ears. Maybe a couple with pale skin and fangs." You wink at the girls. Yuriko giggles but Ava glares at you as she primes the canister. "Sorry, but I only save the cute ones." Ava tosses the canister. It casts down to the reactor floor and lands right at the feet of the Patriarch and the genestealer horde. You are already halfway back to command when it detonates. There is a rush of heat and charred bits from the reactor room while your party ducks behind the door. The lights flicker, but the shield generator remains on. A ghostly voice drifts in from the reactor room... "Avenge the family...."The black water under the generator begins to churn.
>>27370320A long whip like tale worms its way up from the surface of the water. Your brain starts to hurt and your vision blurs for a moment. The creatures head surfaces last. the smooth sloping eyeless forehead sweeps back into a thick crest. Thick green pulsing sacs hum with energy as they pulse in time with the shield generator. Little vestigial arms writhe along its stomach as the creature rights itself. Hanging a foot above the water it has to curl its tail around the generator to fit in the room. It lets loose a scream that rips into your soul. Yuriko screams out, clutching her head. Ava cries out "Shoot the controller!" The move is yours. Mutant 40/40 Ava - 40HP 0MPYou - 20HP 0MPYuriko - 20HP 5MP
>>27370412Shoot the controllerthrope. Tell Yuriko to recharge her mana while Ava and us deplete it's shield.
Rolled 2, 43, 32, 7 = 84The three of you shake off the oppressive atmosphere this thing is putting out. There is a ringing in your ears. Ava tosses Yuriko a bluish orb. "Hold tight, like pills." Yuriko grasps the object and relaxes. Ava and you fire at the beast.You and Ava take aim and fire. 7 1d100's please. First to beat the highest above wins it.Yuriko +20 MP

Rolled 58, 42, 32, 27 = 15920/2 = 10-2 = 8 Damage.The SAR rips into the psychic barrier of the Controllerthrope. It screams in pain and then screams louder as Ava's Vintorez rips into the creature, deflating one of its psychic emitters. The beast lists to one side. Some of the bullets push out of its flesh, along with some bolts and small black drops of the fluid below the generator, and they fire out at the party like grape shot.Roll to dodge. 7 1d100s Number to beat is highest above.

>>27371312Well thank god this roll means nothing!Open up more rounds into it then!
>>27371312Yuriko freezes the worm in place, then Ava and Anon shoot it to death.

Ava is even laughing a bit, giggling about it having 6 hands to sell to the ecologists. You and Ava sustain firing on the xeno, bullets and energy impacting against its psychic shield. Yuriko charges another bolt and launches it into the ducting along the ceiling. Metal creaks and groans as the ice stresses the heated metal.Yuriko Cunning + Ava skill + Your athletics. 9 1d100's please. First to beat the one above.

It screams in pain and is distracted from blocking your shots. You burn a fist sized hole in its face, which Ava drills a clip worth of rounds into. The beast reels, spraying toxic goo into the hallway. Your tired bodies take some effort to move.Dodge 4 1d100s27/2=14-2 = 12 Damage!

>>27371946The emperor protects, but not always.The wave of noxious goo fills the hallway and splashes all over the party. You can feel it eat into your skin slightly, but the mental images that seep into your mind are more than enough to harm. Yuriko is mumbling in Japanese and Ava is sitting stunned, her eyes a thousand miles away. Images or torn flesh, screams, a man with no eyes laughing and a twisting violent swirl of color. You are back but it took a chunk out of the party. The beast laughs, injured as it is. You wipe the crap out of your eyes and level the SARThe turn is yours.15/2 = 8 willpower damage to party.Controllerthrope 20/40Ava - 32HP 0MPYou - 12HP 0MPYuriko - 12HP 15MP

>>27372624 Every moment this vile xeno lives is a insult to the Emperor. You feel the rage burn within you, the spirit of duty fills you. You lay into the foul creature. You all do. Ava is pumping rounds in with both her shotgun and rifle. Yuriko is just firing on full auto, a stream of Ice pouring from her gun onto the beast, occasional blocks of ice falling down and cracking its skull . You, do not fire. You simply stride up to the twitching tyranid. "Pro Imperatore." you hiss. The barrel of the SAR for the second time today enters into your enemy's mouth. You pull the trigger and don't even look your enemy in the eyes. It deserves nothing more. Bright light tears through the beast's gullet, little arms flailing around and carapaces cracking. The bulk of the beast falls back into the generator, its mind no longer keeping the generator stable. The rings smash into the creature, tearing through it. Energies crackly and open up holes around the device. With a scream the beast is consumed and it and the device are ripped back into the warp. The creature is dead and the anomalies should be gone now. Ava laughs and stoops down. She holds up shattered jaw bone from the creature. "Another trophy. You make good hunter." Yuriko sits against the wall, exhausted, but relieved. You have won. You rolled hard, like wow 44/2 = 22-2 = 20 Damage.Controllerthrope 0/40Ava - 32HP 0MPYou - 12HP 0MPYuriko - 12HP 15MPWhat now, fellow Stalker?

>>27373239Check the Reactor Room, Ava keeps an eye out for any Genestealers that are still alive, and Yuriko checks the reactor so that it's not leaking weird stuff into the water.Ask Ava if she'd like to come with us, since this place is no longer in the Zone.
>>27373239Sit next to Yuriko and let Ava loot for a bit. Give her a small high five and ask her if she can rig up another breathing mask for Ava so we don't have to do the cliche sharing thing.When that's all finished, let's make our way for home. I think Ava would benefit from letting the other girls explain the Beth situation to her rather than us.
>>27373330>>27373365>>27373380>>27373395>>27373420You pat Ava on the back, her eyes beaming at you from behind her mask, she then asks what you are doing about extraction. You frown and tell her. "HOW MANY METRES!? Is fine is fine, I have closed circuit suit, should last." Yuriko starts waving her arm about, scanning for anything useful. She gathers up some small circuit cards here and there, at one point taking a sample of the black ooze in the pit. She figures there is at least one upgrade's worth of tech in parts and schematics. You take a moment to trudge back down to the reactor room and see if anything is left. Ava covers you as the door opens. A rush of heated air and the smell of bacon wafts through. There is nothing left but bits of meat and metal scattered around a 50ft blast crater. The metal of the deckplates are warped and twisted around where the melta bomb went off. Ava curses. "Should have saved it." You see a bit off the gaunt man's staff lodged in the control panel of the Wave generator. One of the rotating units is also damaged and spinning irregularly. Yuriko taps your shoulders and points to her wrist computer. "Time to go". Almost on queue the geiger counter on Ava's belt starts screaming. You slam the reactor room door shut and take off for the escape hatch. Is the air getting warmer?...And that's it folks for tonight folks. You did the Emperor's work today. The commisar is pleased. Thanks for playing. Next session is tuesday at 6 pm est.
>>27373709See you then!
>>27373709>Is the air getting warmerWhat is that supposed to mean?Oh, and I bet Beth sent a welcoming party for Ava too, so we'll have to deal with getting shot at while we land on the beach.Until next time, IslandMaid.
Oh I forgot to give xp for your kills.+150xp for the Tyranid thread. You did wipe out a whole cult and a Zooanthrope.
>>27374032Might want to mention this at the beginning of next thread.
