While Ignitrix corrupts the Inquisition at its roots half a galaxy away you’ve been assisting Acerea with her Eldar crusade. The Mother of the Eldar race, Isha, tasked the Plaguebearer with “saving” some of her children from the maw of It-Who-Thirsts. Said salvation comes at a price to the Xenos: they must willingly submit themselves to the “love” of the Plague Lord, Nurgle. In a way the ancient aliens are trapped between a rock and a hard place. Either they relegate themselves to living in fear of themselves and the afterlife or they relinquish their purity to enjoy their extended lifespans. Machinations such as these aren’t really your forte. Thus, you’ve mostly made sure Acerea’s been kept safe and been allowed to speak her mind to the Eldar. The both of you have high hopes in one of the Spiritseers you’ve encountered thus far. Of the three you’ve met on the Haven Spire hosting Wraithlords and Ghost Ships, she seems to be the most open minded of the Xenos. The other two might be a problem, as evidenced by the fact one’s left his sanctuary to come talk to you personally. Especially since he’s in full combat attire and flanked by numerous Wraithbone Constructs.Welcome to Khornette Quest. Possibly a holiday special as well.

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. We may be switching to Acerea’s POV mid-session. Just be aware and watch for it.Excessive meta/whining/waifu’ing/etc goes to another thread. Blatant Samefaggotry and overly lewd write-ins will be ignored.You may find this 4chanX filter list useful: http://pastebin.com/QxMu8Rrr
>>36598866WIth four Wraithlord to your rear, a Spiritseer to your fore, and another two constructs behind him you’re starting to get the sense this is about to get interesting. Well, interesting in the Khornate sense anyways. There’s only one actual skull you could claim in this little pack but that’s fine by you. A skull’s a skull after all. Still, it might be best to hear the Spiritseer out just in case your instincts are wrong. Which would be a first but it doesn’t hurt to be cautious. “An offer?” you inquire. “I was unaware that any Eldar had the stomach to serve Khorne in righteous battle.”The Spiritseer laughs heartily before replying. “We of Biel-Tan are proud adherents to the Path of the Warrior. Perhaps formally so in my case but our viewpoints on honor and the glory of dying in combat are much the same.”As you formulate a reply you idly twirl the blades clasped in each of your claws. “And yet I sense there’s a contradiction to follow.”“Indeed, daemon. Tell me, have you ever heard of the tactics of the Stormwind?” You can’t say you have. Acerea probably knows what that means but she’s on the other side of four Wraithlords back in the Shark Assault Boat. “Not at all. Humor me.”The Spiritseer smiles and snaps his fingers. In less than the time it takes you to process the sound all of the constructs present have drawn their ghostglaives. The white robed Eldar produces a weapon of his own as well - a staff brimming with psychic energy and a small knife made of wraithbone. “It is a strategy based on wiping out the enemy in one swift stroke. Normally it carries an element of surprise but I thought to humor you.” His brows furrow as he steps back and allows the constructs behind him to move forward between the two of you. “I shall not let you daemons twist the mind of the young one any further. We cannot be allowed to submit to Chaos. History shan't be allowed to repeat itself.”(cont)
>>36959561Your tail twitches in annoyance at being made light of. You’ve half a mind to interrupt his monologue with a swift attack of your own. Yet there’s something you need to confirm before springing into action. “And what of the ‘young one’ then? What will become of her?”The Spiritseer turns his head slightly away, as if in shame. “She and her tainted ilk will be purged. My colleague is already seeing to that now.”Great.

>>36959571The order of combat precedence states that one should always kill the psyker first. You may have limited knowledge about the link between the Spiritseer and the Wraithlords but you’re pretty sure killing the Eldar will make things easier for you. A quick flick of your wrist sees the ghostglaive leaving your left hand and soaring between the two constructs in front of you. Each tries to bat it out of the air to no avail, their reflexes sluggish. The Spiritseer’s a little bit more on the ball though. He starts to move out of the way yet he’s still too slow. With a sickening crunch the ghostglaive pierces the Xenos’ femur and lodges itself into the deckplating. The Spiritseer roars in anger and pain as one of his constructs turns to try and aid him.

>>36959885You might be a Bloodthirster but even you know when to get help. There’s no way you’ll be able to handle five constructs at once and still make it in time to rescue the female Spiritseer. Dropping low, you whirl around and launch yourself back towards the four Wraithlords standing between you and the airlock. Firestorm blade at the ready, you slip, dive, block, and otherwise negate three of their attacks. One of the spectral warriors does land a blow across your arm, sending your boiling blood across the floor (-4 wounds). When you break through to the other side of the group you waste no time in wrenching the airlock doors open. You quickly shout, “ACEREA, SYTILI, IT’S NOT A DUEL ANYMORE. GET UP HERE,” before being forced to turn back around to defend yourself. The next few seconds are but a blur of clashing blades. Once again you’re able to fend off all but one of the Wraithlords. This time the construct gets you across the torso (-5 wounds) but you’ve had worse. “DUCK.”You throw yourself to the ground just in time to see a barrage of acid and psychic bolts fly over your head from Acerea and Sytili. The psychic barrage slams into the wraithbone warriors and forces them to back off and give you breathing room once more. Your fellows use the time to close the gap between you and them, with the gaunts you brought along right behind. >  Get back through to the Spiritseer before he can escape (Ag)>  Clear a path with fire>  Try to disarm the Wraithlords so the others won’t have as hard of a time (WS)>  Use a gaunt as a wrecking ball via your warp chains (BS+30)>  Write in

Those other spiritseers will still join chaos of course, just not on their terms anymore.A shame. They won't get the benefits like the "young one".The wraithlord souls are ours though.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>36960286A certain Eldar is still alive as evidenced by the fact the constructs in front of you aren’t showing any signs of slowing down. You need to fix that. Now. From your prone position on the deck you barrel through the Wraithlords on all fours as they recover from the psychic attacks. Along the way you use your tail to trip up one of the slower ones. He’s sent crashing to the ground and his ghostglaive flung from his hand. You don’t have time to look back but you can guess that the Tyranids and Acerea took the opportunity to advance based on sound alone. Quickly pushing yourself upright mid-run, you swing your firestorm blade up to catch the waiting Wraithlord’s attention. Beyond him, the other guard that the Spiritseer had brought with him seems to have gotten the Eldar free. He’s currently being held by the construct as blood drips from his leg to the floor below. There it pools around your ghostglaive and gives it a proper birth in battle.“I knew…” the Spiritseer says through gritted teeth. “I knew I should have brought the Falcons down to begin with. But no matter. Even if I fall here they’ll be enough to stop you from reaching her.”You exchange two more slices with the Wraithlord in front of you before replying. “Well had I known you were so cowardly to use tanks I would have brought my own.”He spits in your general direction.>You will be rolling a WP check in addition to whatever you choose.>  Spit huh?

Rolled 35, 91, 37, 72, 41, 62 = 338 (6d100)I don't think we've dealt with fire before. Basically the way it's supposed to work is that those in the path of the flame have to make an agility test. If they fail they get hit and have to roll again to see if they catch fire. So I'll go ahead and roll 6d100 here just to cover all six possible rolls for the two Wraithlords and the Spiritseer. After that I'll get to writing.

>>36960629You spit back. But not just with your mouth. Focusing on your Firestorm Blade, you unleash a wave of fire across the three enemies in front of you. The Wraithlords don’t even seem to notice the flames as the blaze washes over them. The Spiritseer isn’t as hardy, however. Given that he’s being cradled he also can’t get out of the way. As such the inferno slams into him and sets him alight. About the same time you feel an odd sensation briefly surround you. It’s as if the universe itself has destined you to be hit by the Spiritseer and his Wraithlords. Luckily the psychic power breaks with the Eldar’s screams as he writhes and leaps from the wraithbone warrior’s arms. You once again hear a crack as the Xenos’ injured leg breaks under him but the man doesn’t seem to care. For the moment he’s rolling about on the floor in an attempt to put out the fire. >  The Wraithlords will be slow now.

>>36960878Now that the Spiritseer is otherwise occupied he won’t be able to aid the Wraithlords. Your next few stabs at the Wraithlord you’re engaged with confirm this suspicion. Like with Loshor, the construct’s movements have slowed. Not by much, mind you, but enough that you can repeat the process of grabbing ahold of the warrior’s spirit stone.“Try not to hate me too much,” you whisper as you wrench it free from the Wraithbone shell. “Or do. I care not.” Immediately the construct collapses before you. You “pocket” the spirit stone and move to repeat the process on the other Wraithlord. By the time you’ve fished that one out as well the Spiritseer has all but burnt to a crisp.

Deadman’s switch… burn the spire and all… too late… Never reach… in time…”Then the alien goes still and quiet. You note that one of the Spirit Stones embedded into his charred robes has taken on a sparkling gleam. As such you cut it free with a snick of your claws to put it with the rest of your new collection. You figure you’ll turn over the stones to Acerea once this is all said and done.Speaking of…You glance back down the corridor from whence you came. There you see the last few moments of combat between the Tyranids and the Wraithlords. Using their numbers and mass against the wraithbone warriors, the gaunts topple over the last construct and tear it to pieces. Acerea slips in between their frenzied movements to pluck out the Spirit Stone, muttering something under her breath as she does so. Just as you’re about to call out to her, the entire hallway turns a red hue and an alarm begin blaring in the Eldar language. The plaguebearer glances up at the ceiling then back down to you. “They’re taking down the thermoshield!” she yells. “We’ll be incinerated by the suns if we don’t get out of here soon!”So that’s what the Spiritseer meant by Deadman’s Switch.

Then the AI replies, “ENGINE IS ALREADY EN ROUTE OUT OF THE NEBULA.

So after spire's destroyed, we'll comb the void a bit for soulstones we may have missed, right?I doubt we took on *all* their wraithlords.
>>36961962You glance out of a porthole and grin. “Indeed. Maybe you should make it a centerpiece of the garden when we get back.”Acerea “Hmm’s” to herself, then muses, “I suppose with a little work it’d make for a nice little fountain…”“Of course it really doesn’t matter if we burn to death out here,” you add jovially as you return your attention to piloting the Shark. And not a moment too soon. Flak turrets sprout from the exterior of the Haven Spire and begin spewing anti-fighter fire into the surrounding space. Each explosion rocks the ship around you as you swerve this way and that way. For a moment you think you’ll be fine. That’s when you notice that the Whisper of Anaris has both undocked and has maneuvered itself to aim its main canons down the length of the spire.“Well F…”Your expletive is cut off by twin beams of light tearing into the Ghost Ship from the direction of the Engine. The hellish barrage forces the Anaris to veer to the side and its cannon fire to pass harmlessly into the void of space. Between plasma cannon volleys, you note that the Engine has used its railguns to blast open a hole as you instructed. “Good thing Ignitrix did her job,” you mutter appreciatively as you practically throw the Shark into the gap. From the looks of it you’re in the torus section from before. However there is now an inordinate amount of Wraithbone constructs and wreckage floating about. If you had to guess based on the burn patterns, this destruction was not caused by the Engine.

>>36962238Since you’re not exactly sure where the Spiritseer is, only that she is nearby, you turn to Acerea and Sytili. “Would either or both of you be so kind as to find our missing friend? I’ll go out and grab her but I need a direction first.”“Certainly,” chitters Sytili as she and Acerea put their heads together. A minute later Acerea gasps and starts yelling for everyone to stand back.“What? What’s wrong?” you demand, ready to leap out of the pilot’s chair. “Shhhh! Just look!” Acerea points to the spot she was formerly occupying. A portal much like Ignitrix’s has formed just above the deck. Out of it steps the female Spiritseer. Her armor is in tatters, her helmet is smashed, and her face is sporting several gashes. But the important thing is that she’s alive. “Thank you for the beacon,” the Eldar says to Acerea, nodding appreciatively. “It wasn’t just me, dear. Sytili helped too.”The Spiritseer looks around and winces slightly as she notices the Tyranid as if for the first time. “Ah, right. Well thank you too. I guess.”A shudder of the assault boat serves to remind all present of the impending spire implosion. “Do you have anything we need to get before escaping?” you ask. “Anything at all?”She looks over to you, thoughtful. “If you could get me to my ship I could try and pilot it out. But even that’s a gamble. I know not whether my crew has been slain or whether the others have sabotaged the vessel. As much as it pains me to say it, we may have to leave my friends-on-the-other-side behind.”“I suppose teleporting isn’t an option?”“No, I used the last of my strength to get here as it is.”>  Try for her ship anyways>  Head back to the Engine>  Write inThe power of a 1 and an 8 in action

>>36962765>>36962811 sounds like a good idea, though is the Engine close enough for it? If not, then we might be better off leaving it. After all, we only have One living Eldar at the moment... we could try and get them a ship once we have a crew... as hers are likely dead from the betrayal...Also, who would have thought that the 'pure' eldar would be the agents of their own undoing?Had the Spiritseer not come down to kill us, they probably could have killed her and engaged our single ship in combat...Stupid Eldar...Also, did we grab the Spiritseer's Skull after he said about the failsafe? cause we could have popped his top as we picked up our Ghostglave...

>>36963021Yes. Yes you did. Even though I tagged the wrong dice roll up above.
>>36963019When Iggy is told about this she is totally going to puff up and declare it part of a grand plan she had while internally cursing the fact that such an impossibility occurred without her being there to see it...
>>36962765During your time on the Engine you’ve maybe glanced at a technical briefing on the ship twice, if that. You know the very basics of your vessel and little else. That said, you do recall there being several tractor arrays interspersed along the hull. “Hey you, the Eldar,” you say. “Can your ship tolerate being tractored out?”She frowns slightly. “Kaysis. My name is Kaysis. And yes I believe it can. Is it a desirable course of action though? Not particularly. It’ll cause so many stress fractures that…”“Good enough for me,” you interrupt. “We’ll worry about repairs later. For now…”You turn the Shark around and begin to burn back out towards the Obscenity Engine. While you were inside the Haven Spire it appears that the AI’s taken upon itself to reduce the Anaris to dust. Already the external hull temperature is causing alarms to come to life in the cockpit of the Shark so it’s a good thing you don’t have to worry about wasting time on avoiding gunfire. During your transit, you send a quick message requesting that the Engine lock its tractors onto Kaysis’ vessel. All four of you in the assault boat watch one of the external camera feeds as the Eclipse-class cruiser is ripped from the Haven and out towards the Engine. Numerous explosions dot the cruiser’s hull but it remains mostly intact from what you can tell from here. The last vestiges of the Haven Spire’s thermoshield evaporate shortly thereafter. Within ten minutes the only remaining part of the station is a smouldering ball of irradiated wraithbone. From somewhere behind you Kaysis says a few words in memorandum. Acerea doesn’t translate but you do hear the plaguebearer gently patting the Eldar’s back. Which reminds you…(cont)
>>36963418“Here,” you say as you produce the Spirit Stones you collected earlier and toss them gently to Acerea. “Better that you hold onto them I think.”Acerea looks them over for a moment then offers them out to Kaysis. “Thanks hon. But I think I’ll let Kaysis here handle them. They are her former friends and warriors after all.”The Eldar takes the stones with a shaking hand and slips them away. You don’t envy what Acerea’s going to have to deal with next. Luckily for you you can excuse yourself under the pretense of polishing the new skull you took…> Small time skip and change to Acerea’s POV next post. Ten minute or so break before I write that though.
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>36963430>The Eldar takes the stones with a shaking hand and slips them away.She needs a hug
Isn't this Eldar from Iyanden? She would positively want nothing to do with any Tyranid.
>>36963619That is correct. It was mentioned earlier as being a point of contention. We'll see how it turns out.
>>36963689>>36963619>resolved through the love of NurgleThat's the true meaning of Christmas!
>>36963430A week has passed since Cinder helped you liberate Kaysis from the Haven Spire. You’ve given the Spiritseer space for the most part, not wanting to push her too quickly after losing so much. From what she’s told you so far over three thousand souls were lost to the dark, their Spirit Stones doomed to wander the cosmos for eternity if they were not otherwise destroyed by the twin suns. In addition it seems that her cruiser is largely scrap metal, or, rather, wraithbone. The other Spiritseers crippled most of the essential systems: only the Webway-related components survived their wraith. And even then that was due to Kaysis’ Wraithlords and Wraithguards sacrificing themselves. Of those there are but a handful left. As for you and Sytili, the two of you have worked to expand the Garden throughout the rest of the deck. It’s not quite as colorful or vast as the one you had on the Raptor but it’s still something to be proud of. You even managed to fashion a fountain out of the umbilical arm from the Spire. It’s the centerpiece of a large meadow that sits across from your “room.” In addition, you’ve grown a few festive plants after consulting the Engine’s calendar. You may not remember celebrating Emperor’s Day from your life before but something about seeing a pine tree brings you a smile. Currently, you’re lounging on your bed of lilies and watching various smaller bioforms go about their lives. You don’t even notice that Kaysis has slipped from the shadows to stand next to you until she speaks.“I don’t like them,” she says, looking out over the meadow like you are.>  AH! Don’t sneak up on me!>  Who, the tyranids?>  We can go somewhere else if you want to talk>  Write in

>>36963764>  Who, the tyranids?>  We can go somewhere else if you want to talkTell big sis Acerea all about it.
>>36963900>big sis AcereaWe did call Kaysis our sister-in-law earlier. Onee-san time?
Mmm... I'll merge them I guess. Writing...
>>36963764You push yourself upright and use one of the larger petals of a giant lily as a backrest. “If they bother you we can go elsewhere. I know it must be hard to be around them given Iyanden’s history.” Glancing to the side, you see that her gaze is vacant and otherwise locked onto a fixed point in the distance.“No, no I need to learn to deal with my fear,” she replies in a monotone. “That’s the whole point of coming with you right? Not living in fear anymore…”With a wave of your hand you manipulate the ferns and other greenery around your room so as to cut off your view of the meadow. At the same time you have one of the other large flowers gently slide up under Kaysis so she has a seat of her own. “Just relax and let it out. They won’t bother us in here. It’s just the two of us.”It’s a while before the Eldar responds. “I just wanted to see if there was something different out there. Something better than the slow decline into dust that my race is doomed to. Something that meant I didn’t have to raid innocent civilians like some of my Dark Kin just to survive. I thought it wouldn’t be so bad at first once I confirmed that you did indeed come on Isha’s request. But… But all of this… Maybe I should have just kept my mouth shut and told you to leave.”She looks down at her hands, palms up. “I should not be troubled by the blood on my hands and yet here I am. The only ways forward mean I must either submit myself to you and the Plague Lord or commit suicide as an atonement for my sins. I… I don’t know what to do.”Poor thing. She’s not crying externally due to the deeply ingrained Eldar custom of hardly showing emotion but you can tell she is all the same.>  Let her keep talking it out>  Try and lighten the mood by mentioning the fact you have no idea what you’re supposed to do next either>  Take her for a walk to show her a special project or two.

>>36964376Hopefully we will find out.
>>36964160Best you can tell, a walk will do Kaysis some good. Before you make the offer, though, you send a quick mental message to Sytili. <Sytili, hun, can you have everyone vacate the meadow and special plot number two? Kaysis and I are going for a walk and I’d rather not overstress her.><Certainly. Ssssshout if you need me.>You reach out and pat the Spiritseer’s shoulder. “Come. Let’s go for a walk. I promise you won’t see a single Tyranid along the way. I want to show you something.”“Yeah. Sure…”With that you stand and carefully guide Kaysis out of your room. As promised, Sytili’s had all of the Tyranids move elsewhere to leave your path unmolested. For awhile the two of you just stay quiet, the only sound being your footfall on the grass. It’s only when you reach the patch of ground in question that you break the silence.“Here we are~” you say as you gesture to the patch of pine trees in front of you.Kaysis looks up from the ground but for a moment. “They’re lovely… trees. I guess.”You smile and breathe in deeply. “Ahhh… something about that smell is just invigorating. But I didn’t bring you here for that.”“What then?”“Do you have a Spirit Stone on you?”Kaysis almost jumps in place at the question. “Yes, several. Why?”You motion at a point in the dirt a little ways away from the smallest tree. “I’d like you to plant one. Right over there.”“Is this some sort of ritual?” she asks, hesitantly producing a stone from her robes. “Call it more of a hunch. Isha never really told me what to do after I talked to one of you and Papa Nurgle generally allows things to take their own course. Just try it and see what happens.”(cont)
>>36964707The Eldar looks between you and the aforementioned spot in the dirt as if debating whether to do it or call your crazy. Finally she walks over and kneels down to begin scooping out a depression to deposit the stone in. You watch her work patiently, nodding when she finally covers up the stone and stands up. “Good, now stand b-”Before you can complete your sentence, the patch of earth erupts into a bed of roses. Kaysis is sent reeling backwards as the thorns and flowers materialize as if from nothing. “What… what is this?!” she demands.“That, my dear sister-in-law, is a sign that a little faith will be rewarded. Look there.” You point to the biggest rose to emerge from the sudden foliage. There, at its heart, lies the Spirit Stone. But not as it was. It’s become a part of the rose itself, a living organism in its own right. “I believe this is their way of showing us they mean well.”Kaysis falls to her knees before the colorful thicket, at a loss for words. >  Suggest that she try planting more.>  Let her sit for a bit.>  “If it’s too much, we can pick it up another day.”>  Ask if she’d like to meet Sytili again.

>>36964943I dunno, is being loved by the Plague God better than being tortured and devoured by the God of Excess?
>>36964943You also have to remember that Eldars in their stones are functionally immortal. One of their grand plans is to wait until one of their gods is revived via an Infinity Circuit iirc. So it is a good fate? Maybe. Is it the best fate? No.
>>36964995>One of their grand plans is to wait until one of their gods is revived via an Infinity CircuitThat was never going to happen and is a very stupid plan.
 it is. Writing...
>>36964995One of their biggest plans to save their dying species was "wait and hope everything fixes itself?" And these guys are supposed to be the wisest in the galaxy?
>>36964995I thought the birth of Ynnead required that all the stones were emptied into the Infinity Circuit.>>36965011It's still better than "let's wait until we all die and She-Who-Thirsts claims us all"
>>36964943At least their soul still exists rather than being turned into cosmic energy to feed It Who Thirsts. Besides, Papa Nurgle loves everyone in his family and Mama Isha will certainly look after all of the Eldar souls.
>>36965094That actually doesn't sound bad.
>>36964726You decide to once again give Kaysis some breathing room. “I’ll just be right over here if you need me, dear.” You point off to the side and begin a short walk around the small plot. At a normal pace it’d take you less than three minutes to round it so you take it easy. You even double back a few times just for good measure. Eventually the Spiritseer comes back into view. She’s stood up and appears to be waiting for you.“He’s gone. Loshor. That was who was in that stone. But I could still talk to him, through the imprint he left in the plant. It wasn’t much but… I think he’s happy.” Despite herself, you see tears forming in Kaysis eyes. “Happy, Acerea. That warrior had been dead for centuries and known only the pain and fear that comes with having lived for so long. And now he’s happy. This had better not be a trick. Because if it is I… I will…” She half-heartedly produces a wraithbone blade from a sleeve and holds it at her side. Smiling, you carefully approach with an outstretched hand. “It’s okay, Kaysis. I know it’s a lot to take in. It’ll be okay.”“But why would they hide this from us?! Why would our smartest seers dismiss what might be the only way to save our race? Are we that blind?!”>  I don’t have the answer to that. >  Perhaps no one’s offered before?>  Fear, perhaps.>  Write in
>>36965050No, their plan was to let their species die entirely, the psychic backlash of which would result in the Eldar pantheon gaining a death god hopefully capable of destroying Slaanesh. They haven't committed mass suicide because 1) not all of them are on board with the plan, and 2) the more Eldar live and die in the mean time, the more powerful the new god will be when they finally kick the bucket.
>>36965234>  I don’t have the answer to that. >  Fear, perhaps
>>36965234>  Perhaps no one’s offered before?>  Fear, perhaps.Up until just now, any such attempt would probably have gone exactly as the pessimists expected.

>>36965234Now within arm’s reach you carefully take the dagger from her. The Eldar doesn’t even offer token resistance. In fact she seems all the more happy to be parted from it. “Fear, perhaps,” you begin. “Until now there hasn’t been any indication that such an arrangement would work. Plus many Eldar believe Isha to be the Plague Lord’s captive. They wouldn’t even consider such an offer.”“Isn’t she?” asks Kaysis.You tilt your head slightly to the right in thought. “Not in the way you or I would understand. I know that she was rescued from Slaanesh, like Loshor was. And in a way, Nurgle offers her a way to provide hope to all through her cures. They balance each other out.”“Like two sides of the same coin…”“Now you’re getting it.” You smile and offer the dagger back to her hilt first. “A lot of your race’s actions have been the result of fear. A very real fear that stems from a very real threat in the form of She-who-thirsts. That won’t change overnight. It won’t even change in the years to come. But I think you’ll find that the Plaguefather, and Chaos in general, is patient. Time is no longer a factor unless you wish it to be.”Kaysis gingerly takes back her weapon and sheaths it. “But does this not disrupt the balance of power? I may not be wise in the ways of Chaos but this seems like the sort of thing She-who-thirsts would object to. Even go to war over.”You chuckle at that. “Perhaps it is. I’m not all that worried about it though.”“Why not?”You point up at the ceiling. “Her. Cinder. And Ignitrix, who you’ve yet to meet. They’re part of something much larger. A movement to reshape what Chaos is. Even Chaos needs to change, to decay and evolve. What they offer is a hope for a new state of being.”“Which is…?”(cont)
>>36965824“I have no idea.” You shrug. “I just know that the wheels are in motion. I suppose I could ask Papa Nurgle or Isha but I don’t like to bother them.”“Wait, you can talk to them whenever you want?”“Sort of. It requires a brief trip into the Immaterium and an anchor back here in realspace. I haven’t tried it lately though.”“I see…” Kaysis’ gaze falls back to the rose patch. “Do you think they’ll mind if I plant a few more?”“I don’t see why not.

>>36965846After letting the Eldar spawn a few more flower patches you join her proper. In all the two of you send off close to twenty souls. The resulting greenery is so vibrant that even Vern’s memorial patch pales in comparison. But what matters most to you is the fact that Kaysis is smiling by the end of it. “Better?” you ask.“Better,” she replies.You pat her shoulder. “Good. I think that’s enough for today. Wouldn’t want to overdo it. But tell me dear, have you been sleeping at all?”She looks down at your hand then follows your arm up to your eyes. “No. I can’t say I have. Or at least I wouldn’t call what I’ve gotten ‘sleep.’” As she speaks it seems to you her mask drops. You finally see the same kind of scared and tired little girl that you used to be. It’s not entirely similar of course, but it’s enough that you know how to help her from here.“Why not stay here tonight?” you offer. “I’ll whip you up your own ‘room’ and everything.

>>36966140>  No need to push it. There’s plenty of empty rooms up above.Eldar have no right being this cute.
>>36966140>>  No need to push it. There’s plenty of empty rooms up above.>before you go?go where?
>>36966179Like before you leave the Garden with her.  assumes she doesn't stay here for the night but she still meets Sytili
>>36966140>  No need to push it. There’s plenty of empty rooms up above.
>>36966196ah rightalso was looking through the char sheet, and how does Acerea only have Fel of 28?
>>36966140>  Why not meet one before you go? You promise she won’t bite.She can still decide if she wants to stay in the garden afterwards
>>36966225She's due for an advancement. But also because Ara Ara gives her a hidden bonus.
>>36966140> >>36966229 has the right idea. Even if they literally just say "Hi" it's progress.Now on that note - can you imagine what Iggy's going to have to do with the Sisters? Especially the Repentias?
>>36966140>>  Push her a little. It might be a good step forward towards getting over her phobia (Fel)>>36966262>Now on that note - can you imagine what Iggy's going to have to do with the Sisters? Especially the Repentias?I'm looking forward to it, and I'm looking forward to the cheerleading battles between Cinder's khornate SoB's and Iggy's SoBs
>>36966262My vote is for Iggy to "gift" the repentias to cinder and keep the rest, all acording to plan of course
I think  wins by a vote. Writing...
>>36966309i wonder whats up with the sole-surviver one though, especially sice we rolled a crit on them
>>36966350I want the sole-survivor to decide for herself on how to live the life she was given.
>>36966477Maybe that life could be nurtured by Nurgle's TLC?
>>36966140“That’s alright hun. Come on. Let’s go find you a room on a deck above for now. But, if you’re willing, I’d like you to meet Sytili along the way. You remember her right?”Kaysis hesitates, “I… Yes I remember the Zoanthrope.”You begin to push her towards the exit. “And do you think you can stand saying hello? It’s okay if not.”“Just ‘Hello?’ ...I think I can do that.”“Good, good.”It takes the pair of you close to half an hour to find a room for her. By that point Sytili’s found a nice, neutral place nearby for the brief meetup. A canteen of sorts by the look of it. The Zoanthrope is already inside, floating across from the door. Kaysis takes a step back at first but you easily shepard her inside. “Why is it wearing a hat?” asks the Spiritseer. It’s a valid question. Why is Sytili wearing an Emperor’s Day hat?“Why not ask her yourself?” you prod.With that you step back and let the two approach each other on their own terms. Kaysis is the first to speak.“Hello.”“SSSSalutationsssss.”The Eldar’s eyes dart around as if searching for some hidden gaunt in the shadows. “It’s just you, right?”Sytili nods, “Yesssss.”“Good… Good… Um. Why the hat?”“Becausssse the computer ssssaid it was tradition. Assss is getting your friendsss a gift.”Kaysis raises an eyebrow. “A gift? Friends? I don’t understand.”You cough and interject, “Emperor’s Day. It’s a ‘mon’keigh’ holiday of giving and cheer. I think Sytili wants to try and be the first to extend a hand of peace, much like I did.”“Yessss. I wassss not apart of the Hive that tore into your home but I cannot usssse that asss an excussse. I am ssssorry for all that you have gone through.”“That’s… very kind of you.” Kaysis bites her lips again. “Am I dreaming? I must be dreaming.”“I’m am ninety percent ssssure thissss issss not a dream or ssssimulation.”“Oh.”(cont)
>>36966605You mime for Sytili to wrap it up. The look on Kaysis’ face tells you she won’t be able to stand much more today. With that the Zoanthrope produces a small box from behind her and floats it over to the Spiritseer. “I think that’ssss right. It’ssss hard for me to bend your Wraithbone.”Kaysis takes the box tentatively and looks to you for guidance. You nod and she opens it. Inside is what appears to be a heart shaped from the psychic plastic. “Thisssss is the sssymbol of peace, yessss?”“Not quite, dear. But close enough. Right, Kaysis.”“Right…”There’s that empty look again. Your time’s up. “Thanks Sytili. I’ll see you later yeah?”“Of course, Acerea. I did not forget a gift for you either.”You smile at her before leading the stunned Eldar to her room. After you’re sure she’s safe inside you wander back down to your Garden. It’ll take some time to get her through this but time is something you have plenty off…> Housekeeping next post
>>36966616Bought that time I wrapped up.So yeah. Stuff that may or may not break canon happened. As per usual. Cinder will get something like 2 or 3 infamy for being a participant in the whole shebang. Acerea will "rank up" as well.Merry Christmas.
>>36966630Will she be getting BBW anytime soon?
>>36966630Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!Thanks for running!
>>36966630Happy Emprah's Day! Hope it wasn't too spooky!
>>36966630yep merry Christmas, guess no time for Q&A this time?
>>36966666I mean I'm here for a bit anyways since suptg is still down. What would you like to ask?
>>36966616Can we all agree that Sytili is best girl?
>>36966677Can the soul-roses spread new soul-roses over time?
>>36966701Best Dinobug for sure.>>36966677Will Cinder ever be provided with a decent challenge!?
>>36966677Will Kaysis go all ara-ara?
>>36966677Is the spirit-seer like a farseer? Does she need new armor?
>>36966704They can bud and pollinate yes. Does this mean new souls or Eldar are being made? Fuck if I know. I'll leave that to your imagination.>>36966710Go smack Abaddon or a Titan. They might work.>>36966711It's a mystery.
>>36966630thanks for the thread
>>36966677i tbelongs more to the last session , but can we get (very) short biographs of the staff Iggy aquired.like stuff from the paperfork that surely came with them, or do we have to roll for that stuff?
>>36966724So, did we just get one eldar out of this business venture?
>>36966711I hope so
>>36966724Now that we're done with these pirates, are we checking out the remaining sources of eldar as well?
>>36966677Will Sytili Biomorph as her hive grows, or will she always be standard Zonthrope spec?
Are our heroines the only ones that are somewhat like normal people, or is chaos in general less extreme? Besides slaanesh I guess.
>>36966816I wish a Slaaneshi or something else would show up as a big bad rival sometime soon.
>>36966743You can have a little sure:The Repentias have been collected from other acolyte cells. They're the result of what happens when a Sister gets too many corruption points in the style of Dark Heresy. They come from various Ordos and backgrounds but share in their need to redeem themselves.The Witch-Sight ones are old Sisters of Battle that have been denounced and condemned from their former Orders due to having psychic powers. They're kinda bitter about it all around but aren't suicidal like the Repentias.The sole survivor is from a now-extinct Order. Without spoiling too much and saving space, consult the following table with the following roles:http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Sisters_of_Battle_Order_Creation_Tables1, 4, 7, 1, 6, 51, 26, 47, 62The rest of the rolls are unimportant.>>36966779If you'd like to sure. Just say something when Cinder's at the helm and going through Port Wander.>>36966783She's going to start becoming a rather odd looking Warrior strain soon. So yes, she'll biomorph as time goes on. >>36966816One person's extreme is another's tame. That said there's a reason they're not off slaughtering babies for shits and giggles. Mostly because that's shitty Imperial propaganda. Only Slaaneshiis do that.
>>36966831It seems like the Slaaneshi are the big bads and are preparing something.
>>36966844>She's going to start becoming a rather odd looking Warrior strain soon. So yes, she'll biomorph as time goes on. Is that because of Cinder's influence?
>>36966831I'd prefer something that worked in the shadows. Most, if not all, of our opponents have met their end by facing us in a "fair fight," and got ripped and torn into pieces because of it. Having a plotmaster to face seems like it would be more interesting.
>>36966869No she just really wanted legs and to not have to float around all the time. Though she probably will anyways like some Tarrasque tied to balloons.
When you say Acerea will rank up, you mean that she will become a Herald or a full GUO?
>>36966886Kek>>36966844>26The irony. Assuming I'm reading the tables right.
>>36966844Will we start seeing eldar plaguebearers?
>>36966918She's still just a lesser daemon, so Herald, I think.
>>36966924But anon, Acerea's one of those.
>>36966920>The irony. Assuming I'm reading the tables right.well Best Bird seems to be an irony magnet
>>36966937>>36966920Five thrones says the Saint's actually the Greater Daemon and it's all a cover up.
>>36966918Probably Herald-like stats with some modifications to make her average around 36ish. I'm toying with how her appearance will change if at all. I really want to somehow include a nod to Isha but damned if the Goddess doesn't have any art to pull from.
>>36966920>>36966937mind clueing a clueless anon in?
>>36966959Wouldn't it be amusing if Cinder was the one to kill the rest of the order and Iggy was the one to ensure her survival...
>>36966984Just have her glow green and sprout flowers that bloom and decay in a three foot radius.
>>36966998My theory ist that cinder has a different conection to the death of her Order
>>36967039My theory is that Cinder is Tiger's dead mom borne from the exterminatus of his home planet.
>>36966920>The irony. Assuming I'm reading the tables right.Oh? Mind elaborating?
>>36967079The last chick is the sole survivor of an order whose saint was a living saint who killed a daemon prince.
>>36967079well the 26 means that her Order worships a (formally) living sant that slew a Demon prince..?if i read the table right
>>36967079It's also ironic in how her militant order was made to promote the faith in a region, was a descendant of the Argent Shroud order (which makes them all goody-goodies), and their base planet was an oceanic Shrine world (churches and beaches abound!)They did have a thing with privacy and stealth though, but it seems it didn't help them in the end.
Acerea's stats are updated. Her new average is 38.I feel like Sytili's gunna need a sheet eventually.
>>36967182Will the Sisters' wings all be Tzeentchian, or will it depend on their alignment?
>>36967196The corruptions rolled only apply if Iggy is the one doing the corrupting. If Cinder or Acerea step in we roll new ones for those involved.
>>36967206Bleh, too complicated, can't you just make it simpler?
>>36967206I'm pretty sure they will be Iggy's to corrupt, Acerea has Sytilli and her nids and Cinder has Iggy and Acerea, so its only fair Iggy gets the cheerleaders
>>36967222Half the fun is rolling on those charts! We'll see.
>>36967238But I like what we have now! I just wanted the alignment to affect the way their wings looked.
>>36967222Now now, anon, don't be like that. Though, that is rather disappointing. Bird-winged sisters are cool, but half the point was to get Cinder some battle sisters she could turn into competent warriors.
>>36967238I really liked what we already rolled, those were the only ones I wanted from that list, though I can't remember them off the top of my head other than fleshmetal, so I won't be voting for anyone other than Iggy to corrupt them.
>>36967248but then we'd have to reroll on the charts and I don't want to lose what we already rolled for them and get worse ones
>>36967254An anon provided this.Like I said we'll see what happens when we get there and if there are any Sisters left over for Cinder/etc to make into vampire bat chicks.
>>36967248It seems like she'll only get around to making them competent when they're physically capable of being competent. So they would have to be corrupted first. I just hope that the wings can change to reflect their alignments.
>>36967267Hence my > That's rather disappointing.
>>36967248Well once we get those sisters for Iggy, it will be piss easy to get some more for Cinder, she can be all impressed of them and act all inquisitor'y and requisition some of her own
>>36967238>Now, here's the thing, we could either have some Winged Sisters with power armor fused to their beings, or we could have the MYSTERY BOX!
>>36967304>Winged Sisters with power armor fused to their beingsYeah imma go with this.
>>36967298This assumes we don't get exposed by then. I feel like there has to be at least ONE not-retarded acolyte/Inquisitor out there that will figure it out eventually.The law of averages says there has to be!
>>36967319There was, and we killed him and took his Rosette and now we have an allied trustworthy =][= in Iggy and her newly made connections with Lord Caidin
>>36967319> Sir! I've discovered something most disturbing!> "What is it acolyte? This better not be another Eldar sex tip or I swear..."> Not at all Sir! It's about Caidin's newest favorite.> "Oh good, blackmail material then. Well go on."> Well erm about that, she's actually a daemon> "...You can't be serious"> It's all right there, proof and everything!> "Acolyte, if word of this gets out the entire Inquisition will come collapsing down. You never found this. This never existed. You shut up and pretend you found some Emprah damned sex tips again."> Yes sir...
>>36967160Sisters of Battle + Stealth Tactics + Oceanic World = Red Cliff every battle
>>36966986>Deeds of Legend (d100)>The individual was a stalwart enemy of the servants of Chaos, and slew a Daemon Prince.
Here's the important question about Ms. Beach Nun - is her power armor literally a bikini?
>>36967723roll a d100
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>36967731I believe!
>>36967741crap, that was pretty good, i guess that gives you at least a bared midriff and the ability to swim in it.But i'm not the OP so it unfortionetly doesn't count
>>36967767I might be persuaded via art to allow a bare midriff.Not like it'd be the first canon-breaking thing to happen. Nope. That doesn't happen here.
>>36967779welp ,i guess that means i have to get to research and drawing now, for teasing and such, while I'mat it any requests as to what to put in said armor?+general Pointers as i'm pretty new to 40k and where to put it if i ever get finished
>>36967965My best advice would be to look at stuff that Luth has drawn. A little searching around on the archives for /tg/ will find you his DA account.
>>36968292>his DA account.http://lutherniel.deviantart.com/>>36967965if you have any queries you can generally find what your looking for in the various wiki's for 40k, http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Main_Page & http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Warhammer_40k_Wiki work well
