Welcome to Khornette Quest. Again no intro post today, straight into stuff.---Twitter: @ELHMk1Normal Run Time: Thursdays @ 8pm EST (GMT-5)Archive Link (includes sup/tg/ & moe links, art & references, and other info): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZlPV-W2T9xDEzsSxYq8OLHnB7CKfB0eUAQyH4vj2lU8/edit?usp=sharingCinder’s Character Sheet:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10H9COxlc2Qaqkx5DTaihQJHazhc-_KKIS-Aon-VxluA/edit?usp=sharingIf you’re a die-hard lover of canon, I suggest you turn away now. Like all things 40k, the gauntlet runs from “worshipping the printed word” to “over the top silliness.” Most of the time it’s somewhere in between. Others it swerves hard to one side and/or breaks this model entirely. You’ve been warned in advance.All rolls go against a specified characteristic in the style of Black Crusade. You’ll want to roll under the characteristic value in order to pass the check. The more degrees of success (every multiple of 10 counts as 1), the more awesome of a result. A 1 is a guaranteed success, and a 100 is a guaranteed failure. Best of three rolls when it’s called for, with a 1 or a 100 instantly taking precedence. If multiple characteristics are being rolled for, each 1d100 counts for its respective test. Any rolls prior to the call for one and those not linking said post will be ignored.You may burn (i.e. gone forever) 10 infamy to completely reroll a check (i.e. three new 1d100). If you have above 10 infamy, you are allowed a single additional 1d100 roll for any check during a session. Excessive meta/whining/waifu’ing/etc goes to another thread. Blatant Samefaggotry will be ignored.You may find this 4chanX filter list useful: http://pastebin.com/QxMu8Rrr
After a week of playing cat and mouse with the Whisper of Anaris you’ve finally cornered it. Well perhaps “cornered” is the wrong word. It’s more like you managed to track the Eclipse-class ghost ship to its source: a binary star system host to an Eldar Haven Spire. Situated perfectly between the two dancing stars, right in their barycenter, the starbase seems to be home to several corsair vessels, including the Anaris. Due to the solar interference (which is probably why the Spire is where it is) you can’t get an accurate reading on how many ships are currently docked. Really the only reason you can even “see” the station itself is due to the oversized solar sails that are brimming with collected energy from the two stars. Had the Anaris not led you right to it you might have missed it entirely.“What to do…” you mumble, eyeing various sensory readouts. Currently the Obscenity Engine is hidden within a nebula at the very edge of the system. You’re almost positive that you haven’t been spotted but you still have the nagging feeling that this is a trap. Most of your weapons will be useless due to a combination of interference and holofields, meaning you’ll have to target them manually. With no Ignitrix around to make such calculations easy, let alone perform the necessary evasive maneuvers, directly assaulting the station would be suicidal.You could try to pilot a craft over to the station and breech it. There’s several modified Shark Assault Boats aboard that would fill that role rather easily. Should you want something faster there’s also a few Faustus Interceptors. Either craft would be far less detectable than the Engine but would leave you at a severe disadvantage should you get spotted or trapped on the Spire.(cont)
>>36587394Short of waiting for the Anaris to leave the relative safety of its port, the only other option that stands out is loading yourself into the forward-facing railguns of the Engine and hoping you have good aim. It’d fit your Khornate heritage to a T but you’re not entirely sold on the “glory” that has a chance of sending you either into a sun or into the void of space. Plus it’d take some doing to get Acerea to come along if you took that route. >  Wait for the Anaris to leave.>  Take a smaller spacecraft over.>  You’re a daemon of Khorne. The railgun was always the only choice. >  Who needs Ignitrix? You’re in a DAoT ship with an AI. LEEERRRROOOYYYY>  Write in
>>36587410>  Take a smaller spacecraft over.We're gonna have to git gud at flying sooner or later.
>>36587410>  Take a smaller spacecraft over.Take Acerea. It *is* her mission to corrupt these guys.
>>36587410> Take a smaller spacecraft over.
Spacecraft it is. Writing...
>>36587765Did you have the "Cinder-launching railgun" pre-typed or something?
>>36587798Well, that just goes to show what happens when you try to put things on rails
>>36587410It only takes a wave of your hand over a console to see the shuttlebay nearest Deck 12 (and your Tyranids) brought to life. You figure you’ll decide what specific spacecraft to take once you’re down there. Before leaving the bridge you time the Engine to go into lockdown after an hour. No sense leaving your flagship ripe for the taking while you’re away. With that you head into the lift and down towards the shuttlebay.Acerea and Sytili meet you just outside of the lift, along with a mix of both broods’ gaunts. “I thought we’d ssssave ssssome time and bring them down in cassse you wanted to bring them along,” says Sytili as she gestures with one of her little claws. You glance between the assembled Tyranids and the spacecraft in the bay. If you took a Shark you might be able to fit about 20 of each type of gaunt onboard. Conversely, if you took a Faustus, you’d barely get two ‘nids inside. It’s a trade-off between maneuverability, speed, and troop payload. Worst case you could leave the Tyranids behind, but sitting around idle does them no good. >  Take a Faustus>  Take a Shark>  Headpat Sytili for her initiative and let Acerea make the call. >  Write in
>>36588064>  Take a Shark
>>36588064>  Take a Shark>  Write inHeadpat Sytili anyways.
>>36588064>Faustus, take two nids, one of each flavorThese are eldar we're dealing with here.
>>36588064>  Canslap Sytili for her initiative and let Acerea make the call.
>>36588105Elaborate please. I might change my vote.
>>36588128We need to be fast and swift if we want to be able dodge any fire they might throw at us. Unless we feel like jumping off of the Shark to the space station, I don't see why we should take that over the Faustus.

>>36588163I think we can manage so:>Take the Shark. Headpat/canslap Sytili.
>>36588064>  Headpat Sytili for her initiative and let Acerea make the call. Her show
>>36588245We could just wait in the Shark in their hangar bay with our shields up and start tearing up the place when negotiations fail.
looks like  and  are tied right now.I had two posts in this vote but one of them was a reply to someone
>>36588185Well I believe  and  are tied, though Sytili's getting a pat either way. I'll wait a bit.
>>36588293I'm partial to 3, but only if we can give her a slap on the can. It can be a thing we do.
>>36588318Like, "Headpat 2: Electric Boogaloo"
So it's "I'm partial to the Shark but you can choose, Acerea." While patting Sytili.
>>36588377On the ass.
Could we not bring Slaanesh stuff like canslapping into this? Zoanthropes don't even have asses.
>>36588394And the head.Both. Yes.
>>36588377I'm going to go with this. Lewdfags can fuck off to /wst/
>>36588401Canslapping is as Khornate as it gets, you dolt!
>>36588452A slap on the can is only weird if you make it weird, bro. It's not weird to you, is it, bro? That's kinda weird, bro.
>>36588452>Lewdfags can fuck off to /wst/Nice to see you're as paranoid as ever.
>>36588452>>36588474Like, a headpat is an incredibly demeaning gesture. The top of the head is the highest point of the body, and it is where the ego exists. To touch the top of a person’s head is highly invasive, for children and adults alike.Slaps on the can are given around the midsection, and when they are given, it's to acknowledge that someone deserves to be on the same playing field as you.
Relax people, and wait for NotELH to post.
>>36588539ELH was the one who needed to relax though, that and >>36588401
>>36588539NotELH needs to stop covering his butt. He's not being chill at all. Nothing lewd about canslaps.
>>36588560>>36588563Oh.Forgot to read the name...No one is being lewd, QM. people are just having harmless fun. But everyone can be excellent to each other and be serious when we need to.>captcha: able asssEastwat.
>>36588064You reach out and give the zoanthrope a quick headpat for showing some initiative. Turning to Acerea, you say, “Personally I’m partial to the Shark, but it’s your call Acerea. Which do you think is best?”The plaguebearer looks over the vessels, sizing them up. “Well if I had to choose, I’d go over myself in a Faustus. No sense endangering you all any further. But somehow I don’t think that’s a choice.” She turns back to you, matching your stare. “So yes, I agree with the Shark. Maybe we’ll get lucky and not need the speed or the Tyranids.”“I see. Well you heard her, on we go!” Five minutes later sees the filled-to-the-brim assault boat sailing out into the void. With Acerea and Sytili eyeing the sensors and you at the helm, you’re fairly confident you’ll make the trip over to the station in relatively one piece.>  Silent Running the whole way (Ag)>  Hard burn to close the distance, then drift (Ag x 2)>  Hail the station once you’re farther away from the Engine (Fel)>  Write in

>>36588640I don't get why he would veto something as inconsequential as that, other than the reason being: he hates it when players have fun. Or he's just paranoid. Seriously a slap on the can shouldn't be conveying any feelings of lust, only acknowledgment of somebody's efforts. Get your mind outta the gutter, NotELH.
>>36588698Using the binary stars to your advantage, you mask your initial burst of power behind a solar flare. It lasts for as long as the jet of radiation does, followed by the Shark going eerily quiet. The only sounds are the barely audible oxygen refresher, the occasional shuffle of the gaunts, and your own heartbeat. Together, Acerea, Sytili, and you stare at the sensor output, searching for any sign that the Eldar have noticed you. So far, it seems you’re in the clear.In fact, by the time you’ve reached the station proper, you’re almost set on the fact that this is a trap. There’s been no movement from any of the Eldar vessels and no sensor scans from the station itself. To top it all off, you’re not detecting any power output from the Spire except for the bare minimum to keep it and the surrounding space from roasting. Granted that’s still quite a bit but there should still be something more. Shouldn’t there?“Maybe they’re a quiet bunch?” offers Acerea.“I certainly hope not,” you reply. “Otherwise you’re going to have a very hard time talking to them. The silent ones always prefer violence.”“Oh~? I wonder what that says about you then~”You roll your eyes and resist the urge to reply.>  See if you can scan the station to get more information (Per)>  Try and find a docking bay to land in>  You’re in an assault boat, breaching time>  Hail them>  Write in

>>36589263A secondary, focused scan still doesn’t net you any answers. It doesn’t even get you a response from the Spire. What the scan does get you is the location of a docking bay that’s currently unoccupied.“Well it’s something at least,” you grumble as you steer the Shark into the bay. After it’s in place, you move over to the craft’s airlock and cycle through. As the bay itself is depressurized and otherwise open to the elements, you’re left floating weightless in noticeably warm space. Glancing around, you eventually spot a blinking console sitting next to an umbilical arm. From what you can tell it’s designed to latch onto an airlock and otherwise offer passage in and out of the station.After fiddling with the controls for a bit you’re able to get the arm moving towards the airlock of the Shark. Once it’s attached an extremely muffled hiss signals the balancing of atmosphere taking place. By the time you’ve reentered the assault boat from the secondary airlock, the process is complete. Stale air rushes into the craft from the Spire along with a small piece of broken Wraithbone. The passage beyond is jet black and otherwise quiet.“Definitely the ssssilent type,” remarks Sytili. Suddenly the zoanthrope chitters and begins spinning in circles.“Sytili?” questions Acerea, obviously concerned. “What’s wrong?”The plaguebearer doesn’t get an answer until the Tyranid stops gyrating. “I tried to lift that bit of plasssstic and ended up lifting myself. Very disssorienting”“That’s wraithbone for you, dear. Try not to be so reckless.”You yourself focus on the corridor ahead of you. Still no movement.>  Advance out on your own cautiously. This reeks of a trap.>  Escort Acerea as if nothing’s wrong.>  Remain here while Acerea and Sytili go do their thing.>  Write in
>>36590139> Escort Acerea as if nothing’s wrong.

>>36590448I think this is basically going to be it.Writing...
>>36590139You wave to get Acerea’s attention before motioning up the umbilical. “Let’s get a move on. The longer we’re here the greater chance we’ll be discovered. Though I half expect they know we’re here already and we’re walking into a trap.”Acerea looks between you and Sytili for a moment. Turning to the latter, she whispers, “Stay here and don’t let anyone in. We’ll let you know if we need the gaunts.”“Ssssure…”With that the plaguebearer straightens up and walks over to you. “Shall we?”You nod silently and move out ahead of her. Close enough to grab her in an emergency but not enough to where one grenade will get you both. Not that any of it seems to matter. All that’s jumped out at you from the darkened wraithbone corridors so far is a big pile of nothing. Looking behind you you note that you’re leaving tracks in a very thick layer of dust. “I wonder where they all are…” wonders Acerea aloud as she pauses in front of a control panel. You’ve passed several along the way but had elected to leave them alone thus far. “Keep a look out will you? I want to see what I can find out.”You don’t really have to be told to do your job, but you glance either way an extra time just to humor her. “You know how to work that thing? I was just kind of pushing buttons at random earlier at the airlock.”She chuckles. “Yes, I noticed. And not entirely. I know some Eldar but I’m certainly not Ignitrix when it comes to technology.”“Fair enough.”Several minutes pass with no external stimulation other than the sound of Acerea tapping away. Finally she steps backs and sighs. “Well I learned one thing at least. There’s a heavily shielded, secure section situated at the top of the Spire. Other than that though? Not a soul aboard. Not even on the ships that are docked here.”“So… they’re actually ghost ships?” you ask.“Seems that way.”(cont)

>>36591293Another good point. If it's worth protecting, it's worth looking at.
>>36591293>>36591325Progress is the path of most resistance.
>>36591351>Progress is the path of most resistance.Nice. Sounds like an old Rogue Trader quote.
If we meet Eldars and Acerea manages to convince some but not all to turn to Nurgle, what do we do with the leftovers?I say we try to turn then to Khorne, playing on their pride to regain honour, strike back at Slaanesh, and saying that it's what Kaine would have wanted.From the leftovers of that we can make a gift to Ignitrix and try to turn some to Tzeetch. They like reliving the glory days of their race, making discoveries, and having hope to bring those days back (just don't mention the horrible mutations).And the stubborn ones, we can assume they're actually Slaanesh-worshiping masochists who want to have unspeakable things done to their souls when they die to get off and show Slaanesh their devotion. And we can gladly help them with that. Isn't Cinder nice? actually it's probably the empty soulstones for them
>>36591041“This section up above us, anything between here and there?” you ask.“Not as far as I can tell,” Acerea replies as the two of you begin walking again. “But the size of the corridors seem oddly large. They’re the biggest just outside of where the shielding ends.”“How do you mean?”“I mean that Eldar don’t usually build that big. It usually interrupts the flow inherent in all their designs.”“If you say so…”You return your attention to the seemingly never-changing passageways. It doesn’t take all that long to traverse up the Spire. In fact it’s as if the Spire itself is actively aiding or guiding your ascent. You never quite catch the wraithbone shifting but you always can tell when a passageway wasn’t there before by the missing layer of dust. By the time you’ve reached the section Acerea thought to be abnormally large, your paranoia is at an unprecedented level. The section itself is a collection of high, wraithbone crystal arches that run in a torus beneath the heavily shielded partition. Various alcoves and rooms pocket the walls, giving the illusion of a once thriving community complete with shops and domiciles. After touring around half of the ring, you’ve yet to find any sign of how to proceed upwards.Until you walk just a bit further, that is.In one of the alcoves on the inner portion of the ring is an elevator. Guarding the hallway up to it are two wraithlords, one on either side. Easily twice your size, they seem to be otherwise inactive.>  Acerea! Go Diplomance!>  Go say Hi yourself>  Nope.jpg>  Write in

>>36592293you mean >>36591877 ?
>>36591787You share a glance with Acerea. “So do you want to…” you ask, pointing over at the giant wraithbone constructs. She bites her lip nervously then nods. “Couldn’t hurt I guess. Gotta start practicing my speech anyways.”“You mean you didn’t practice before now?”“Well no I did, but a Zoanthrope who’s already corrupted isn’t a very good sounding board.”“Fair enough. I’ll be right behind you should things go south.”Acerea smiles weakly and steps forward. “Well hello there,” she calls out. “Do you think you could let us by? We just want to speak to whoever or whatever is up there…” She points at the ceiling. “...and we’ll be on our way.”Silence. Neither Wraithlord so much as twitches. They might as well be statues.“Umm… I guess if you don’t care…” Acerea tries to step past the two only to have her way blocked almost instantly by a pair of ghostglaives. “NONE SHALL PASS,” thunders one of the constructs.“NONE SHALL PASS,” echoes its fellow.You’re already moving forward as Acerea tries once again to talk with them. “Now look here, I don’t want to fight you if I can help it. I’m sure you used to be very nice Eldar. But I need to speak with…”The Wraithlords repeat their statement.

>>36592546“Hey Acerea, lemme try,” you say, gently pulling her back so you’re now in front of the Wraithlords. They remain in their blocking positions, ghostglaives firmly planted in the deckplates. “Do you have to fight them Cinder? I don’t feel like that’s going to win us any favor with whoever’s controlling them.”You glance back over your shoulder and wink. “Oh trust me. It’ll be fiinnnneeee.”She raises an eyebrow as you turn back to look up at the Wraithlords’ helmets with the biggest shit-eating grin you can muster. “Hi. My name is ‘None.’ You said I could pass, right?”The Wraithlords look down at you then back at each other. At the same time you hear a squeaky and incredulous “what” from Acerea behind you. Only for it to be repeated much louder and stronger when the constructs holster their blades and stand aside.“See? Easy. You just have to-”“But that’s impossible,” claims Acerea.“Certainly seems possible to me~” you call back as you walk past the Wraithlords. The plaguebearer joins you after a moment with pursed lips. She remains silent as the elevator starts up, only commenting when you’re out of sight of the constructs.“I’m starting to see why Ignitrix had a hard time planning around you.”You look over to her. “Don’t tell me you’re going to start pouting like she would in this type of situation.”“No dear, you’d like that too much. Besides, I still have to talk to whoever or whatever is behing those things and convince them to become members of the Nurgle family.”“Hah! So you still have some bite in you. Good, good…” (cont)
>>36593165You trail off and look up as you wait for the elevator to stop. When it does, the doors open up to a strange sight. Three beds lay equidistant from one another across from a large, glowing wall of circuitry. The beds are occupied by Eldar in robes adorned with a triangle-like glyph flanked by wing iconography. Beside each bed is a staff also tipped by the triangle-glyph. As with the Wraithlords, the Eldar do not respond to your entrance.>  Okay really Acerea, go diplomance.>  GENTLEMEN (and possibly ladies) DO YOU HAVE A MOMENT TO TALK ABOUT CHAOS?!>  Write in

>>36593184“Go on then. I’m sure you’ll be fine,” you say as you usher Acerea out of the lift. As soon as the two of you are out of the elevator the doors shut and lock behind you. “Who are you to interrupt our slumber?” The question seemingly comes from the room itself, much like an AI, but your keen eyes catch one of the three Eldar’s lips moving. Instead of answering yourself, you look to Acerea.She doesn’t seem to have noticed as you have so she’s left looking around at the room in general. “We… I have come to see whether you wish to be free of the hell that your souls are fated to. I offer a chance to save yourself from Slaanes-”The very air swirls into a maelstrom at the mention of the Chaos God. All three Eldar speak this time. “DO NOT SPEAK OF IT WHO THIRSTS TO US.”Eventually the flurry of psychic activity dies down and Acerea presses onwards. “Alright then… Let me put it another way. If you don’t take my offer, you’re stuck as you are now: in your spirit stones and your Infinity Circuits clinging to some vague hope that it will one day be enough to-”“It was your kind who took Isha from us in the first place,” speaks the middle Eldar.“Why should we listen to any daemon’s lies,” another asks. Acerea sighs, then summons forth the five spirit stones she had been given. “Because it was Isha who sent me.”Another hurricane erupts, accompanied by a loud howling wail. It doesn’t show any signs of lessening but Acerea’s standing in ground. >  Let her keep going>  Chip in yourself (Fel)>  Run over to one of the Eldar and remove them from the bed>  Write in

Rolled 97 (1d100)>>36593606> Let her keep going

>>36593606> Let her keep goingShe got this
>>36593606Clutching the stones close, Acerea shouts into the psychic storm. “What? You don’t believe me? That the mother of your kind sent me to see that her children wouldn’t suffer anymore?!”“WE DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR LIES.”“That she wept knowing that the only chance of seeing you happy was corruption by the very God who holds her captive? That it was either this or damnation!? Is that what you want?!”The whirlwinds continue without a reply. As for the plaguebearer, she lowers her voice. “I get it. I really do. You don’t want to be minions of Chaos. You don’t want some greater power holding control over your souls. You want to be free. I was once like that you know. I was once human. But do I regret being made into what I am now? Not at all. The salvation offered by the Corpse God is a lie, a falsehood. Much like the protection your spirit stones offer. They are a temporary solution to a permanent problem.”As if passing into the eye of the storm, the winds drop off suddenly. The middle Eldar raises off of their bed and removes their helmet. “Fear,” she says, holding the helmet to her side. “Fear is the driving force. We do not wish to die. We do not wish THAT.”You chuckle mentally. That’s exactly what Acerea was driving towards. In the few moments before the plaguebearer counters you look over the Eldar Spiritseer. Startlingly blue eyes peek out from a curtain of golden hair. Across her forehead is a strange, gate-like glyph in dark ink. This same ink colors her lips and provides definition to her eyes. “And that, my sister-in-law, is why I have come to you.” Acerea takes a single spirit stone from the group and holds it out. “The Hope and resistance that defines you springs from that fear. It is the truth of reality. It is part of the whole that I, and by extension Nurgle, offers you. You need only stop wallowing in death and instead focus on the joy of living.”(cont)
>>36594531Even though you lack any psychic powers you can hear the gears turning in the Eldar’s head. If anything, all of this has got you wondering what you’d say to corrupt someone to Khorne. Finally, the Spiritseer speaks. “My colleagues do not share my optimism. But they are also not of my craftworld, of Iyanden. I shall take your words into consideration and meditate upon them. Should I find them favorable, I will become that which you ask.” Suddenly her voice drops low as she jabs her spear in Acerea’s direction. “But be warned, if I find this spirit stone not to be from Her, I will personally hunt you down and slaughter you for defiling her name.”With that the spirit stone offered by Acerea floats out of the plaguebearer’s hands and over to the Spiritseer. You’d think Acerea would be happy with this turn of events but she seems to be even more worried than when you came in. >  Continue to be the big dumb red thing in the corner.

>>36594562A few moments of silence pass as the Spiritseer stares at the stone in her hand. Then she asks, “Was that all?”Acerea starts. “Yes, yes that was all. We’ll be downstairs in-”“In the Imperial craft housing several Tyranids.” Acerea flinches. “Yes we know about them. As do we know about the ship you have hidden in the nebula.”That’s enough to get you to speak. “Then why go through all this?”“Oh ho! So the Khornate has a tongue!” The Eldar turns slightly to look at you. “Because we were curious what purpose you had here. Once we found out you were daemons AND housing Tyranids, that interest doubled. My fellows thought we’d end up resorting to using our ghostships to cleanse you from the system and the wraithlords from the station.”“THAT MAY STILL HAPPEN,” chime in the two on the beds, still in their trance-like state. “Right…” You look over at Acerea and shrug. “Shall we go then?”“Yeah…”You half expect to have a barrage of psychic bolts thrown at your back when you turn away, but none come. The door to the elevator unlocks and allows you to proceed back down to the level below. Once you’re past the Wraithlord guards they seal the passage once again. “I hope you said all you needed to Acerea. Doesn’t look like you’re going to get a follow-up today.”She turns to you and faintly smiles. “I was worried her being of Iyanden. They have a very bad history with Tyranids. But I guess the fact she’s both a corsair (or an outcast) and willing to consider Chaos means she’s abnormal.”“And we do so love our abnormalities…”(cont)
>>36595140When you reach the umbilical back to the Shark you see five Wraithlords standing outside of it. They stiffen as you approach but otherwise allow you to exit.

She's Iyanden, ok. What are the other two "sleepers"? With all this ghost and wraith stuff I was going to say the entire station is an Iyanden outpost or something, but it apparently isn't.

Sparring huh. Well I guess that can happen. Not like I had originally planned for it or anything, baka. What are you betting or are you going to rely on >>36595452 to be enough incentive?

>>36595942right then, fuck betting that
>>36596013Relax, Iggy's always going to be with us deep within the filthy bunch of blood cells that is our heart. Besides, it is a poor Khornate who would let a trinket get in the way of glory.
>>36596013Why would we do that? We don't even know what it does other than that it will help us and you want to bet it to the Eldar? That seems like a terrible idea. Besides, I don't think Iggy will be terribly happy with us if we lose it, not that we will in any case.
>>36596060>it is a poor Khornate who would let a trinket get in the way of glory.Glory would be sucessfully completing our mission here and rejoining our fleet to go spill more blood, if we get into trouble and can't booty call our pet birtbutt then theres no glory, thats just being stupid enough to fuck ourselves over by betting our emergency line.
>>36596077Anon, I'm agreeing with you, I said 'fuck betting that' as in, "Fuck, there is no way in hell we are going to bet that".
>>36596077She pulled it out of her ass, we can always get more when we meet back up with her. Besides, this is a chance to get a Warithglaive, and that opportunity doesn't come along all that often.
>>36595160Waiting is boring. If you’re going to do something, it might as well be productive. To that end you slip out of the Shark while Acerea and Sytili are chatting. The Wraithlords once again do not block your comings and goings. You size them all up and finally come to stand right in front of one whose glaive is particularly appealing to your eye. “Do you tin cans still spar for fun or do you just sit around doing nothing?” Your taunt seemingly goes unnoticed at first. Then the Wraithlord speaks.“Caring about this realm is difficult. We often need guidance from the seers.”“Yeah that’s great and all, but what I want to know is if you feel like fighting one of Khorne’s favored.”Silence. Then the Wraithlord shifts to defensive position with its glaive in hand. You didn’t even see it draw it. This is going to be good. Walking away to assume the proper dueling starting distance, you point at the blade. “When I win, I want that sword.”“You shall not survive this day, daemon.” By now the other wraithlords have moved out of the way, though they’re still nearby the umbilical.“Oh?”The very instant you’re where you should be to start a duel, the construct advances. The massive blade barely misses you as you step aside. There’s no way in hell you’re blocking or parrying that with your claws alone. >  Psh. Who needs a weapon? You don’t. Claw time.

>>36596134Your best chance at ending this quickly would be to rip out the spirit stone at the Wraithlord’s core. But to get to it you’ll need to put a dent in that mass of wraithbone. While it whirls in an attempt to separate your head from your neck, you duck low and drive several punches with your claws into its side. Nothing. Well, nothing in the sense you get zero reaction from the construct as part of the wraithbone dents. With no blood or skull to take, there’s very little in the way of immediate rewards for your actions. Still, as the glaive slices down towards your head, you’re reminded that the ends justify the means in this case.After another few such clashes you disengage from one another. It’s sporting a few dents but so are you (-12 wounds). Really the only reason you even got hit was for lack of a proper parrying implement.

>>36596656Deciding that the best way to get a weapon is to steal that of your opponent, you start to will forth chains of warp energy from your claws. Before you can amass enough, however, the Wraithlord begins charging. Whipping the chains forward anyways, you wrap them around the glaive and yank. Only to discover that it wasn’t the glaive you ensnared but the construct’s wrist. You’re sent flying towards the weapon even faster as a result. Screaming with rage, you put out your claw in a vain attempt to parry the oncoming blade. To both your surprise and the Wraithlord’s, you do. But not because of the claw - because of the massive straight sword, wreathed in white fire, that’s materialized within it. So that’s where your Firestorm Blade was.>  Nah you don’t need it. Claws!

>>36597603An exploding psyker launching cannon.
>>36597246Seeing the blade spring from nothingness surprises the construct. It steps back in alarm, leaving you an opening around its abdomen. A sharp slice across the midsection sees a rather satisfying gash open up in your blade’s wake. You need only one hand to effectively wield the weapon so the other’s free to wreak havoc in between blows. As such you sneak in a rake of your claws across the gash, widening it further.By now the Wraithlord’s recovered. It bellows in rage and begins laying into you. Now that you have a material weapon to parry with it’s almost trivial for you to bat away each of its attacks. Jab right? Slice up and to the left. Cleave down? Whirl to the side while sliding its blade down yours to give you ample time to beat at its side with your claws. This goes on for what feels like an eternity compared to all of your previous battles. No matter how many tears you cause in the wraithbone the construct keeps moving. Slower and more jerky than before perhaps, but still moving. In a way you respect the fact it’s been able to keep up with you this long. That said, you’re thankful you don’t have to fight multiple of them at once for the time being. Especially since this bastard refuses to go down.Another clash of metal and whirl of red sees the Wraithlord’s spirit stone laid bare. >  Grab it with a claw between blows (Ag)>  Slice it out with your blade (WS)>  Rip it out with your chains (BS)>  Offer to stop there (Fel)>  Write in

>>36598085>Khorne values honourable combat between worthy foesWhich does not include insulting your opponent by implying he can't follow through with the fight.Showing mercy is against Khorne, because it dishonors your opponent.

>>36598193And we can accomplish that just as well by letting him back down, without the potentially failure inherent in chopping him up, including borking the conversion attempt and sending his soul to slaanesh, because we missed and shattered the stone.
>>36598212Actually ELH's canon and GW's canon on this issue is the same, the only one with a different view of things is you, no faggotry here on my part, your the one ignoring and arguing against what the QM has stated several times now.
>>36598229>YOU GO AND DAMN THEM TO THE WARPWhat the fuck are you on? No one wants to do that. We just grab the stone to show them we could. Maybe you should try reading the story first to get the context.
>>36598161>>36598173>>36598192Khorne pls. 55 vs a 55 means you technically pass. Which I suppose is the best kind of passing. Writing...In the grand scheme of things, I suggest deciding this whole coin issue before it's Cinder's turn to convert someone. Just food for thought.
>>36598193>Thats how you usually show someone that joinging you is worth it, by defeating them and sghowing them how weak they are right now.Right, go and destroy his soulstone and send him to Slaanesh because you want to prove a point, which somehow makes the others want to convert to nurgle, when we were already converting them to nurgle without turning them against us...You win retard of the thread award.
>>36598247There is absolutely no line in anything ever being written about Khorne indicating heappreciates mercy or backing down from a fight. Thats the exact kind of thing Khorne is not about. Thats why he is called the bloodgod.
>>36598273>mercy or backing down from a fight.That's not what we are doing you idiot.Your not even reading the quest at this point.Go sperglord and canon lawyer in the 40k generals instead of shitting up this thread.
>>36598229>>36598266Did you idiots even read what the decision was about? None of the options included destroying the soulstone, nor did anyone argue to do so.You should seriously consider actually reading the story instead of wasting postcount.
>>36598292Because botching the roll to grab it with our claws isn't going to destroy it, yup! Good thing we didn't, aye?
>>36598327No it wouldn't, it would just mean we fail to grab it. Because bothcing an attempt to grab something won't mean you grab it anyway.At this point your just grasping.
>>36598292what >>36598327 said, which is what we were worried about.>>36598357>it would just mean we fail to grab it.no it wouldn't, we're trying to grab a tiny stone on a moving target with our warp claws, of course if we botch we're going to fuck it up
>>36598327>We shouldn't do something because botching could mean bad things happen if the QM decides soWell shit, should we never do anything then?
>>36598357You may want to visualise trying to grab a small gem with fuck-huge rending claws, anon. A failed roll isn't always a "miss".
>>36598377If you fail a roll to grab something, you fucking fail to grab it. If he wanted to include the chance of destryoing it, he would have made us roll 2d100 for grabbing and for not mishandling the thing.
Only a 100 would have broken it. I'm not that evil. Failing the roll would have meant you didn't get a hold of it due to some sudden blow or maneuver from the wraithlord.
>>36598428You are far kinder than I.
>>36598456You are a terrible GM then
>>36597877For a moment, you consider straight out asking the construct whether it wants to continue at this point. It would be the sporting thing to do, after all. However that train of thought is derailed as it attempts to bat your sword from your hands. “Hey now, none of that,” you muse as you maintain your grip on your weapon. Your counterattack sees your blade slicing down and right, forcing your opponent to move up and left. That gives you just enough room to reach in and cup the spirit stone in the palm of your free claw.“With that, I believe I’ve won. Now stop struggling and concede the duel. I have no wish to give Slaanesh any playthings today.”For a moment you’re worried that you’ll have to rip out the stone proper. But then the Wraithlord backs down and lowers its glaive. Behind it you notice all of the other constructs removing their hands from the hilt of their own glaives. Reading the mood, you release your grip on the stone and step back. “Tell you what, since I have my own sword now you can keep your glaive. Besides, if we work together in the future I’m sure I can just requisition one of my own.”To your surprise, the wraithlord offers it out anyways. “Take it,” it says. “I shall earn another. This one is yours.” >  Well I mean if you INSIST…>  No. Bad Warrior. Keep it.>  Tell him he can earn it back one day if he chooses to come fight for you>  Write in
>>36598474Everyone is to someone. I'm not the one who kicks whiners and sperglords out of the house, though. The rest of the group does.
>>36598525>>  Tell him he can earn it back one day if he chooses to come fight for you
>>36598525>>  Tell him he can earn it back one day if he chooses to come fight for youBegin the conversion of the Eldar.
>>36598525> Tell him he can earn it back one day if he chooses to come fight for you
>>36598525>>  Tell him he can earn it back one day if he chooses to come fight for youOh hell yes.We need to find out his name, and get his number
>>36598525May as well be shameless. 
>>36598525>>  Tell him he can earn it back one day if he chooses to come fight for youOr something like holding it untill he wants it back, just gotta give us a good work out(even if it's not) like today if he wants it
 it is. Writing what's probably going to be the last update for the night since we've been going for 10 hours straight.
>>36598525Cocking your head to the side, you take up the ghostglaive with your spare hand. It’s much lighter than your Firestorm, though you doubt it has the ability to shoot flames on command. “Tell you what, nameless fallen Eldar, you can have this back if you decide to come work for me in the future.” In order to help drive the point home, you’re broadcasting this to all present. “As I sense there’s a three-way or possible two-way power struggle on this station, I suggest that you be on the right side when the spirit stone drops. Or something to that effect.”The Wraithlord bows its head respectfully. “Loshor. My name was Loshor.”Then he stands and walks out of sight. Only to be replaced by a clapping Spiritseer. The one on the right if you recall correctly. “So you’re not just talk then. But I suppose even then a Khornate wouldn’t dare help It-who-thirsts by giving it the soul of a powerful warrior.”You turn to look at him, both swords still in hand. “Are you here to respond to Acerea’s offer?”He shakes his head. “No. I have come to make one of my own with you.”> Housekeeping next post
>>36598866So you rolled an 8, that's +1 infamy. The rest (if any) will come at the end of the next Cinder-focused session.That's pretty much all I have for tonight. Thanks for playing.Sytili's around if you really wanna talk to her I guess. I feel like there's a lot of unanswered questions on the daemon/tyranid coexistence thing.
>>36598919>I feel like there's a lot of unanswered questions on the daemon/tyranid coexistence thing.Indeed there is. I didn't think there was any soul on the typical non-synapse Tyranid to corrupt.
>>36598919thanks for the thread OP
>>36598919Thanks for running!How does the whole synapse control over different corruptions work?
>>36599004I'd guess they have a corrupted synaptic creature.
>>36599030Not that, the controlling those corrupted by different gods.
>>36598965Besssst I understand it, when one of usss is left behind, out of range of the hive mind (even ssssynapsessss) they can be corrupted by Chaosss. Sssso far sssuch beingsss are killed the moment they rejoin the Hive. >>36599004It'ssss like being bipolar. Or sssso I read. I wouldn't actually know. It'ssss jusssst like managing different typessss of lower formsss.Slithering Hissing Snakes
>>36599049I'm now trying to imagine how the fuck a Zoanthrope uses a computer. Do they type with their tiny little arms and use psychic juju to move the mouse around?
Is 4chan back up? I think it is!
>>36599049A question.>Besssst I understand it, when one of usss is left behind, out of range of the hive mind (even ssssynapsessss) they can be corrupted by Chaosss. Sssso far sssuch beingsss are killed the moment they rejoin the Hive.Does this mean that if a Synapse's Will is strong enough, could it corrupt a hive mind?
