You were forcefully implanted a brain chip that made you into little more than a working drone, after escaping your homeworld you somehow got yourself into a Inquisitorial Cruiser.
Your right robotic arm hanged from its socket only connected by a few cables that were thick and armored enough to survive the torture. Sparks and electrical discharges flew from the end of your arm, the machine spirit of your powerblade bleeding its energy with powerful discharges. Every time one of those emitions impacted the sand below small fulgurites formed.From the hole a mix of sanguine vitae and sacred oils leaked. Where once your robotic shoulder stood now your interior was exposed and visible, inside a beating heart and other machinery moved in synch.The Skitarius angered with the overcome tensed and ripped off his damaged tentacles using his bionic clawed fingers. Once his barbaric techno mutilation was done he thrown it to the ground shortly after, leaving another sacred piece of machinery to rust in this arena. Seeing that your own arm was more of an hazzard now you decided to do the same and ripped it off. The process became more painful than you thought, the sound of grinding pieces becaming the mournful pain yells of the arm. Once in the ground the sword continued spewing electrical arcs and dying slowly, becoming more silent and cold by moments.Both combatants were now paired. The pair were somewhat damaged and lacked one arm but the fight was far from over. Around you the rest of Skitarius looked in silence. Their eyes locked on both combatants, judging silently and possibly discutting the battle in a silent electronical conversation.There was no time to focus on them, all you needed to care for was your oponent. Even if the Skitarii you were fighting against was thin he seemed to be really vicious and flexible, possibily he had his bones and articulations exhanged with more flexible substitutes that let him twist and put in practice inhuman and bizarre fighting techniques.
>>38869710You were able to confirm this shortly after when the man with a sonorous “Crack” contorted his shoulder and his bones. His arm suddenly streched and reached the ground. With this ornery change he was now able to reach you again from his current position. You needed to think quickly>Try to use the plasma rifle as best as you can with only one arm.>Use your chainsword and try to defend from his attacks, see how he acts.>Grab your old bionic arm and try to stab him with it before its machine spirit dies.>Free action.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>38869710Do a barrel roll!
>>38869722>>Try to use the plasma rifle as best as you can with only one arm.Aimbot and use flash. Flash should stymie him for a few seconds and the rifle should put him Down. Aim for the legs. Take them out if he keeps coming kill him.
>>38869745Ok. Roll a 1d100 to see how well it goes.
Rolled 71 (1d100)>>38869745I'll second this
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>38869762
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>38869762BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
>>38869722>Try to use the plasma rifle as best as you can with only one arm.>Aimbot and use flash. Flash should stymie him for a few seconds and the rifle should put him Down. Aim for the legs. Take them out if he keeps coming kill him.You charge your lens with the biggest quantity of photon energy that you can, they soon start increasing in brightness until they become four beacons of pure light. With a scream you discharge the light with such energy that you even blind half of the observant. The enemy tries to cover his face with his surviving arm but this one is now so long that he cannot do it effectively.With him stunned you aim the heavy plasma rifle at his legs. Your organic arm is totally stiffen and cramped from the weight of the weapon after a few seconds of holding it. You still manage to charge the green colored plasma and spit a ball of fire that lands on his ankles and completely destroys one of his organic feet. The man, now limping from the damage can barely move and less advance. The weakness of his barely developed muscles only lets him stay standing for a few seconds. He ends falling down as the blood loss weakens him even more.He's not death, breathes heavily and seems that the effect of the light blast is still affecting his eyesight. His silhouette is bizarre to look at as he lacks a foot, an arm and his other one is elongated and looks completely out of proportion.
>>38869923"We have many more way more valuable than this weakling!" Yells the leader. "Kill him and I'll both give you an Skitarii and access to the bionic technology of your opponent."That caught you off guard. Was this a death fight? Killing him would give you access to exotic bionics that Lanky used but even if he was your enemy he wasn't bad...Did that also meant that you could have died in the fight?>Kill him. You will get another Skitarii and get access to new tech. The Skitarii they give you might not be as strong as your actual opponent thought.>Spare him. He just needs more training and improve his body, nothing else.>Free action.
>>38869935>"Absolutely not! Such an act is a waste of the Emperor's own resources!"
>>38869923>He is a valuable soldier of the emperor, killing him would be extraordinarily inefficient, more so than leaving reusable electronic devices on the floor of an arena! Seriously, what kind of tech priests ARE these?
>>38869935>"Absolutely not! Such an act is a waste of the Omnissaiah's own resources and a follower. I am not a heretic. I refuse.
>>38870008>Seriously, what kind of tech priests ARE these?Inquisitorial Retinue Skitari who take no shit and only want the strongest. A very "survival of the fittest" mentality. Besides their boss is a Radical Inquisitor, they have some freedom that other leaders wouldn't allow.
>>38870039Sounds like khornish heresy to me.
>>38870048They aren't praising death nor violence. They just want people to fight and become stronger on their own sake. The ones who don't become strong end dying. It's not Khornis, is the same thing that happens in nature.
>>38869935"Absolutely not! Such an act is a waste of the Emperor's own resources!"After yelling your answer loud and clear so everybody could hear it you lend your surviving hand and helped him getting up.The Skitarii looked more ashamed than defeated. He bowed profusely and you could swear there were some tears on his brown eyes. As best as he could he ascended out of the arena, the rest avoided him and moved away as if he were a diseased person.“Very well…” Replied the leader, respecting your mentality. “Are you ready to fight our next combatant or do you need to rest?”With the pushing of a button some stairs appeared letting you go out of the pit easily. “And if you are wondering…no. I won’t let you modify your body until the fight is over.”You growled under your breath, those Skitarii were out of their minds, their philosophy was not only to fight but also to endure almost impossible trials and to despise the ones who weren’t able to surpass them. Those men and women probably spent all their lives fighting and improving themselves, thinking only on combating and winning.Walking slowly you went out and looked back once again, your bionic arm still spewed some sparks but after some seconds it stopped, finally dying and becoming nothing but a metallic husk. After that you were guided into an infirmary where you were given energy shots and focusing drugs, your arm hole was disinfected and covered with a metallic plate. Your balance became strained since you were already used to walk with a heavy metallic burden that was now gone.There was still an hour before the next fight.>Try to meet and talk with the defeated enemy. He has to be somewhere in the infirmary too.>Rest and sleep. Get as many energy as you can.>Think of your enemy and meditate about how you could win.>Retire yourself and only go to the ship with the Skitarius you defeated.>Free action.
>>38870236>>Try to meet and talk with the defeated enemy. He has to be somewhere in the infirmary too.He knows what she can do ask him. There is no shame in losing and the other Skiitari are blind. You don't throw away the lasgun because it has a flaw showing from over use. You fix it and make it better.
>>38870236>Think of your enemy and meditate about how you could win.Let's do the techpriest thing: over-analysis.
>>38870236>>Think of your enemy and meditate about how you could win.Were not allowed to modify ourselves, that doesn't mean we can't do something stupid like strap a weapon onto our arm hole right? I mean basic prosthesis is basic as hell so long as you don't expect much out of it. In fact, we could probably make them think we cheated and are hiding an ace in our sleave by having a fake arm that is just a shaped piece of metal attached there, they would have no idea how or what is in it and we'd have a bluff card.
Also do guardsmen ever do that? I assume attempting to depict swollen numbers via straw men would not violate any charter or law, presumably a cleverly camouflaged peg arm would be the same concept. Its not anything more advanced than basic metallurgy so it isn't tech heresy, and all in all I'd say its pretty safe.
>>38870269On that note, I reckon judging by our foes small hunched stature that they're going to unfold into some ungodly spidery nightmare.And I reckon that they don't have enough space to properly contain the munitions or energy packs for significant firepower and thus that they're going to be melee focussed.And with only one arm (the squishy, non-powerbladed one no less) we won't stand a chance in melee with our poor balance.Which leaves us on ranged mode again. The plasma rifle has to be a better option than the other gun we have so I say take that.We've already revealed our ligthshow trick so that's not gonna work.I'm thinking we magboot our way up the walls and overhead where we can dangle the gun and aim well enough even with a single squishy arm. Hopefully we'll be out of range (although I severely doubt that) and in conjunction with our aimbot I reckon we stand a decent chance of landing a solid shot even if they do turn out to be agile as fuck.Worst comes to the worst we can fall off from the ceiling and land on them for a rudimentary melee attack.We should really learn some kickboxing for times like these.
>>38870236>Try to meet and talk with the defeated enemy. He has to be somewhere in the infirmary too.Slowly standing up you stumbled towards the other rooms searching for the lanky skitarii you just defeated. After exploring for some minutes you found him in a completely dark room, crying himself to sleep."Greetings, fellow Skitarii.""Are you...are you gonna end me?"His words seemed full of fear but also apathy and even some desire. It seemed that he wanted you to kill him."Of course not, why would I?""What...We are Skitarius, the warriors of the Omnissiah and working with an Ordo Hereticus agent is one of the highest honors we can expect. Under her orders we will fight heretics that offend both gods, with our work we will please both the Deus Machina and The Emperor. I was preparing myself to fight some kind of unholy tech-heresy but even a newcomer lowly Skitarii like you has been able to defeat me...I do deserve death as I am clearly not strong enough. You pitying and sparing me only makes it even more humiliating."You remembered how you felt somewhat similar when Oihan knocked you down even without her arms installed. Life carried both victories and defeats and the important lesson was not winning at all cost but standing up over and over until the thing that tumbled you cannot do it again."I think you will be of a great use once you come back to health..." You said half convinced. In your mind you weren't totally sure, not because you agreed with him and thought that he was worthless but because you didn't knew what was he fully capable of. "I'm leaving now. Well fought."
>>38870236>Retire yourself and only go to the ship with the Skitarius you defeated.Fuck these skitarii, man.This is too much of a risk, we could lose the bloody plasma rifle that we have not examined!
>>38870450...really... he expected us to be a blatant heretek... on an inquisitorial vessel... I'm pretty sure that'd get us blammed in seconds.
>>38870490The IG executes and sacrifices unworthy personal on a daily basis. Those do something similar, how is that bad? Besides I just said executing the Skitarii, I never said that its bionics would be destroyed, they would surely be reused or recycled.
>>38870490No he expected us to be a green nobody(they obviously do not know who are actually are and what we did) and that we had little to know fighting experience. He was saying he's expected to fight hereteks, how could he beat them when he can't even beat us?
>>38870526Skiitari at their weakest are usually considered as good if not better to veteran Ig troops(I.E. the one you don't piss away unless it is damn important) additionally their augmetics are usually unique and mastered through a life time of experience. It'd be considered a waste of resources. If you know anything about battletech Skiitari executing losers would lead to the same problem the clans had with their pilots. Good tech, but not enough of them to win in a fight.
>>38870526The most valuable thing about a skitari is its mind, AIs are heretical in WH40k because they always ended in horrific deaths to everyone anywhere near it. By killing the skitari, you destroy its mind, which is arguably the most valuable part of it. After all, theres a reason they don't allow servitors into there awesome death clubs.
>>38870450>Think of your enemy and meditate about how you could win.Back on your bunk bed you started thinking in what your next enemy was able to. Everybody but her seemed to have a clear combat strategy; The Leader obviously used her size and strength to roll over high number of enemies or fight enemy vehicles on her own, the skitarii you defeated used his long arms and tentacles to grab and trap, the female Celeritau used her vehicle body to run over and her lance to attack directly, the fat armored techpriest surely used attrition fighting to tire the enemy and end it when it was exhausted...but the twitchy and totally covered techpriest? You had no idea of how could she fight.Using your only hand you scratched your head in frustration and sighed heavily.You couldn't modify yourself but the leader didn't said anything about modifying your weapons or even constructing new objects.( Since there is a new fight about to start there is only time to do one of the following options )>Study your weapons and try to improve them.>Study your armor and try to improve it.>Try to create a new weapon.>Try to create a new armor.>Free action.>>38870569>>38870573Ok. I admit I kinda fucked it up. I'm sorry. I just thought that Gladiator Skitarii would be cool.
>>38870592They are, and there view is perfectly valid, its just that the MC is autistic as fuck when it comes to efficiency. Which is the reason for 90% of his gripes against the imperium.
>>38870592>>38870610Pretty much what this guy said. Heracor loves efficiency. This too him would be totally stupid on a thousand levels. It's valid for small scale things(ie. Inquistorial retinue) but if a forge world did this it'd be dead soon after.
>>38870592This things going to crush our fucking plasma rifle, I know it.We need to study it.>Study your weapons and try to improve them.Make sure we got it's design locked in our memory.
>>38870592Huh... what if we created an incredibly basic prostetic, like something that literally just has basic movement and nothing else, and instead of all the wires and hydraulics expected in such a limb for full mobility and combat tricks, we just pad it with a bunch of dense reinforced material... presumably our ""secret"" weapon would be an initial target as both a form of ""cheating"" and a form what the hells in it (they know we like secret weapons), so if we made it explicitly so it would fuck with a chain sword or a blade if it was impacted it'd cause them trouble wouldn't it?
>>38870610It's a quest about a techpriest. Of course the MC is autistic as fuck. But I get your points. Sorry.
>>38870592>Study your weapons and try to improve them.Examine the plasma rifle
>>38870592>Study your weapons and try to improve them.Also can we use our dendrites to help steady our aim for our plasma gun? I recall one or two of them still has gripping capability.
>>38870637I'm not insulting the quest, so far you've done great, you are beating yourself up and I'm literally explaining why your ideas are actually correct despite you thinking you fucked up
>>38870637It good points, We're just pointing out why heracor would think these people are batshit fucking insane.You're handling it brilliantly.
I found the pic of a cool plasma rifle and I'm somewhat changing it on photoshop to fit better the description, please be patient.>>38870658I guess I just misunderstood your explanations then. My bad.
>>38869710Don't rip off the power sword! That's a terrible idea! We need to replace that and it's inconvenient where we are!At least get it back later.>>38870592>Study your weapons and try to improve them.Really look at how it's made and how it works. Even if it turns out to be xeno design somehow, we can take it to the xenology section and study it there with whoever is stationed there later.
>>38870781Yeah we need to find it. Our excuse is the arm was weak(it was) but the blade performed its function admirably.
>>38870592>Study your weapons and try to improve them.Slowly stumbling out of the Infirmary you managed to find a small workshop. It had all the basic tools and some specialized ones with a scanner and a small cogitator.As you already knew everything about your simple chainsword you decided to study the strange and mysterious plasma rifle on your own. It had some pieces you couldn't identify and ported a decorative and angular copper eagle head that also acted as the aim yet made it slightly more heavy to carry. It's chamber had a green coloration and this reflected on the kind of plasma it managed to create and fire. After the initial analysis this was the report that the cogitator returned.>>+++ ANALYSIS REPORT +++<<++ITEM: Plasma Rifle ( UNKNOWN PATTERN ).++MATERIALS: 33% Titanium, 31% Steel, 23% Copper, 10% Platinum, 2% Exotic materials, 1% Unknown materials.++WEIGHT: 3 kg // 6,61 lbs.++DIMENSIONS: Length x Height x Width ++ 100x30x15 CM // 39.3x11,81x5,91 inches.++CHANCE OF HERETECH: 16%The analysis didn't told you anything new, you could give it a deeper study and learn among other things the energy input and output and the working mechanics but that would need way more time to scan. What come after didn't surprised you either.++POSSIBLE MODS: Scope, Flashlight, Laser attachment, Bayonet.Well, those were pretty generic modifications able to be placed in most weapons, nothing unusual.>Add any of those mods.>Try to improve the chainsword.>Study something else with the few time left.>Free action.
>>38871069>Study something else with the few time left.>Contemplate tactics for beating our enemyNo point adding any mods really, save perhaps the laser but even then we have aimbot and plug into weapon link thing.No point buffing the chainsaw since we can't use both with only one hand with any real ease and I sure as hell don't wanna risk dropping the plasma rifle
>>38871111Forgot to add, you have to add what to study. Also, nice quads.
>>38871069>Study something else with the few time left.
>>38871121Sorry it wasn't clear, the>contemplate tacticswas what I wanted to 'study' as such
>>38871069We'll have to study it in depth at a workbench later. Maybe visit the metallurgy guys to determine what the unknown material is.>Study something else with the few time left.Our legs, and how to make then a bit more mobile on this terrain.>>38871111Maybe try to recall if the twitching gave anything away. Any clues.
>>38871126legs and dendrites.
>>38871132Man I'm pretty dull today. Ok doing all those now.
>>38871286Nah, it my fault.
>>38871286You're really good writer.> english is not my mother language too
>>38871069>Study something else with the few time left.There was still about thirty minutes left, you better use your time wisely.>Contemplate tactics for beating our enemyThe adversary skitarii seemed to be small, that might be and advantage at your favor. It had erratic and strange movements, maybe she had some badly installed or maintained bionics and while strong she was at risk of breaking more easily.You started getting nervous, all those were nothing but conjectures. All your answers would have to be answered at the moment of the battle.>Our legs, and how to make then a bit more mobile on this terrain.The terrain while covered in a layer of sand was built over a metallic suface. Maybe your legs would be strong enough to anchor on the ground. Another idea that came to your mind was using the magnetic reversal and create an explosion of sand.>Our dendrites.Your dendrites were still tipped with the specialist tools, you could maybe wrap two of them to help aiming the rifle but that might risk them if the gun gets damaged and also turn them into a valuable objective...As you ended thinking and meditating on all that the thirty minutes passed, the time to fight came.Slowly you moved towards the arena once again, you heard a small sobbing as you passed by the dark room were your defeated opponent rested.The Skitarius enemy was already waiting, her body twitching and becoming bulbous under her big oversized robe as you got closer and closer.As you were in front of her and once again surrounded by the rest of the members you looked at her hood...and saw nothing.>Use two Dendrites (Choose which ones) to help aiming and shoot at her.>Move in circles and try to study your enemy on all angles.>Get your chainsword ready and get in a combat stance, ready to both attack and defend.>Free action.
>>38871490>Move in circles and try to study your enemy on all angles.
>>38871490>Use two Dendrites (Choose which ones) to help aiming and shoot at her.>Move in circles and try to study your enemy on all angles.Biologis and metallurgisShe moves while we study her, shoot her.
>>38871490>Use two Dendrites (Biologis and Metallurgis) to help aiming and shoot at her.>Move in circles and try to study your enemy on all angles.The two dendrites slowly wrap around your fleshy arm and the weapon, the cold sensation of the metal and the buzzing cables surrounding your skin and robes. While you can now raise it better aiming hasn't become easier as now you have to control three limbs at the same time to aim correctly and it feels mentally constraining most of the times.With a quick pace you run around your enemy, she still stays quiet and silent, more bulges start to appear under her robes, apparently raising in size. When you are about to make a full circle she has turned way bigger than she was at first, doubling you in size, it is then when her big robes cannot take her dimensions anymore and end falling revealing her true nature.She is a floating weapon station. Her back has several balloons filled with what seems to be lighter than air gases and several small rotors to control her movements. Of her original body only her naked and skeletal torso remains, her left arm is now an autogun, the right one a lascarbine and where once were her legs there is now a flamer.With a high pitched scream she floats in the air and as a tripod aims all her weapons towards you. There was no way to have predicted that. It totally took you by surprise. Before she could shoot you raised your arm and proceeded to aim.>Aim and shoot at the balloons, try to make her land.>Aim and shoot at the rotors, try to make her lose control.>Aim at her torso, make as much damage as you can.>Aim at a weapon ( Select which one )>Free action.
>>38871804>Aim and shoot at the rotors, try to make her lose control.And make sure to run for it
>>38871804>Aim and shoot at the rotors, try to make her lose control.No mobility for her.Keep moving keep evading use our legs to turn this into a 3d battlefield.
>>38871804>Aim and shoot at the balloons, try to make her land.Pop the balloon. She has no legs. Can't aim at us well if she can't stand
>>38871804>Aim and shoot at the rotors, try to make her lose control.The balloons after that.Also keep moving.
>>38871841>>38871866>>38871921Ok. Roll a 1d100. Best of 3. Need to get 75 or more to be a success.
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>38871974
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>38871974well shit we're gonna die.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>38871974Here we go
>>38871994>>38871991>>38871978No luck this time. I'm sorry if you think that I ask too much but hitting a small rotor from a moving aerial target with a weapon we can hardly aim is REALLY hard to do.
>>38871978Not good. Hopefully we managed to avoid damage at least. Though the first round is in her favor at the moment.
Seems my belief it was a melee specialist was completely wrong.Sorry guys.
FUCK YEAH! Heretek quest!Also hit the weak point for massive damage!
>>38872015Well you said several small rotors so we thought lots of targets. Is that 62 at least good enough for us tog et a hit on something?
>>38872047Yeah, my bad, I expressed myself wrong. The 75 was to completely destroy it, with a 62 it will be greatly damaged don't worry.I might also try to draw her to give a better impression of how she looks. She's so fucking bizarre that I have trouble to describe her.
>>38872079What I got a floating turret. And even if we only tag the rotors that's good. There's a reason why helicopter maintenance looks hard at the two rotors they use for propulsion and steering. Even one goes down or loses a blade, bad things happen, like spin outs or crashes.
>>38871804You charge your gun and after the green coils become as bright as a sun you release the trigger, a small ball of green fire with the potency of a star flies towards the enemy and impacts one of her small rotors, the fire then turns into slag and makes the blades fall away or become pretty damaged.The sudden change makes her violently swing in the air like a pendulum for some seconds until she manages to recover herself and regain control. "WHAT KIND OF SKITARII ARE YOU!?" She yells in a high pitched voice that tears your ears and makes the lenses of your eyes vibrate so hard that two of them shatter in the moment. "HIT ME IN MY NAKED CHEST, MAKE ME REMOVE MORE FLESH AND BECOME CLOSER TO THE OMNISSIAH!"Looking at her naked body was hard, not because of the fissures that were now visible for you but because how badly kept it was. Even for someone like you that gave no real value to aesthetics found her disgusting and hard to look at.She descended quickly and moved in a straight line burning everything on her path. Using your magnetic soles you exerted a lot of mag energy and send a circular wave of sand flying around, creating a small diversion to roll and avoid the fire. When you stood up you saw a black line of charred sand and a small circle that revealed the metallic floor underneath. Using some aerial tricks she managed to ascend and spin mid air, her flamer once again burning everything in her part, she seemed decided to burn you down.>Try to shoot again ( Choose between Rotor, Body, Balloon or Other part)>Try to climb her body and stab her from above.>Try to blind her with the eyes trick, she wont be able to shoot nor fight if she is blinded.>Free action.
>>38872242>Try to shoot againBalloons this time.I think she's currently too high up too climb.
>>38872242>Try to blind her with the eyes trick, she wont be able to shoot nor fight if she is blinded.>Try to shoot again Balloons>Apologies Sister, but I thought the objective of this was to win, If you want to be closer to the Omnissaiah, do so on your own time.
>>38872242>free action Magna-stompif you can get close enough (she is using a flamer so shouldnt be hard) see if you can get of a magnetically powered kick.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt8NOdINJ1s
>>38872242>Try to shoot again(The flesh is weak, hit it for massive damage)
>>38872319Seems like we'd deal equal damage to our leg.Props on the idea though.
>>38872395perfect opportunity to get a better leg!
>>38872418If we don't finish her with that attack we die. Even if we do there is no assurance they have legs better than what we have.
>Try to blind her with the eyes trick, she wont be able to shoot nor fight if she is blinded.You try to charge your eyes but the two cracked eyes just explode and get all dark, leaving you half blind. The others continue charging thought.>Try to shoot again(The flesh is weak, hit it for massive damage)Roll a 1d100. 80 or more is success.>Try to shoot again BalloonsRoll a 1d100. 80 or more is success.
>>38872418Not at the moment though, since we'd loose mobility and she has other weapons if it doesn't down her. Maybe save it as a finishing blow. Then we'll get a leg replacement at the same time as an arm and a spine.
>>38872455Forgot to add >free action Magna-stompRoll a 1d100. 70 or more is success.The magnetokick needs a smaller roll because it doesn't requires aiming with the damaged eyes.
Rolled 93, 23 = 116 (2d100)>>388724552d 100's right?
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>38872455>Try to shoot again BalloonsBoom.
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>38872470
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>38872455>>Try to shoot again Balloons
>>38872476hopefully he counts that first one.
Rolled 1, 28, 13 = 42 (3d100)Final result:>Shooting at the chest.93>Shooting at the balloons.85>Magna-stomp79Three successes. Now I'm gonna roll for her weapons.>Autogun70 or more is success>LasCarbine50 or more is success>Flamer 65 or more is success
>>38872610Did she just machine gun herself after we hit her?
>>38872592Hope she survives then.
we need to take her to a real Biologis after this and get her to take better care of her biological parts
>>38872592Praise Criticus! Praise Arenge
>>38872455As she aims all her weapons in your direction you do the same and once again charge the cleverly dubbed "sungun" in her direction. The blast flies towards her naked body but to your surprise she has some sort of shield on herself, yet the explosion of light and the heat seem to be able to surpass and burn her decrepit skin.Somewhat blinded and stunned she raises her autogun at your direction, before she can act you release your light flash and completely blind her. With a shattering scream she shoots at all directions, the bullets don't reach anybody outside as you then discover that there is another shield covering the arena and protecting the viewers. A couple of straw bullets end perforating her own balloons and making her descend quickly.Taking this in your advantage you shoot down a couple of the remaining balloons to make her fall unavoidable. In her desperate plunge she shoots her other two weapons but they end missing by far. She falls like a sack of meat. She is tricky, still considering that she might have a card under her sleeve you run and charge the magnets of your feet, every step is heavier and raises more sand than the previous one. When you reach her still conscious yet weakened body you kick her rotors to disable them completely.Once again the leader looks at you and makes a question."Condemn her to servitor transformation and get the tech behind her bionics or spare her.">Spare her. She might be crazy and tricky but she could be useful as an scout.>Condemn her to be transformed into a servitor. Keep her bionics for yourself.>Free action.
>>38872835>Spare her. She might be crazy and tricky but she could be useful as an scout.
>>38872835>>Spare her. She might be crazy and tricky but she could be useful as an scout.Again, a usable mind is a usable mind, intelligent beings that aren't completely insane and hostile to human life and/or heretical are quite valuable.
>>38872835>Spare her. She might be crazy and tricky but she could be useful as an scout.When she said she wanted to be closer to the Omnissaiah I doubt that is what she had in mind. Additionally while I doubt you particularly care about the lives of anyone here, throwing away an experienced mind is wasteful.
>>38872835bitch you cray-cray>Spare her. She might be crazy and tricky but she could be useful as an scout.
>>38872835>Spare her. She might be crazy and tricky but she could be useful as an scout.Are we taking the ones we defeated for the repair mission? Once they're patched up of course.
>>38872908Yep. Once those are repaired the mission might start.
>>38872908Quite possibly, I think they'd be pissed we disagree with there survival of the fittest thought process due to our thought process of "weak materials can be upgraded" thought process. This, coincidentally, is likely what will get us killed for heresy eventually, and/or cause us to end up full tech heretic.
>>38872959They start shit we can list off all of what we did since we left that planet we started on. Up to and including killing a chaos champion twice.
>>38872981This'd work on any group BUT the inquisition or space marines, the inquisition is the people who catch you after you use this for decades to get away with it.
Oh btw, for the people wondering. This is what I had in mind when imagining the skeletal Skitarius.
>>38872959Well, those two in particular may feel better if we tell them about when we killed a magos heretek with a team of skitarii while on our way to the meeting.
>>38872835>Spare her. She might be crazy and tricky but she could be useful as an scout."I came here in the search of Skitarius that could help me in the sacred Mission that the Inquisitor, and thus the Emperor, commended me."With that said you helped the poor thing girl getting out of the arena as she couldn't do it on her own.“They are your responsibility now, and pray for them to make a good work or they won’t be accepted back into our Skitarii temple.”Ignoring her presence you just walked away and placed her in the same room were the firstly defeated Skitarii was. The man cried himself to sleep and now rested mumbling insults to himself.Slowly the girl started recovering her vision and coming back to herself.“W-what happened?”“I won.” You simply answered as you carefully placed her on the bed and covered her with a blanket. “Try to rest.”“So, Faust and I have been defeated.” Her voice wasn’t as strident as before, more like a whimper now.“I had to do what I had to do to fulfil my mission.”She looked at you with some sad eyes.“I-I am not angry...I just hate myself for being defeated.”“What’s your name?”“Eugen.”“Well I am sure that both Faust and you, Eugen, will be really useful in my mission. The Omnissiah wills it.”With that said you programmed some servitors to take them out to the Cybernetica hall to be repaired and healed back. They needed to be operative as soon as possible. When the workers came you went with them and guided them, the servitors while useful had the bad habit of getting confused and lost, some on a daily basis.Once in Cybernetica the same techpriest that attended you some hours back received you."Hey...didn't you had...you know...arms, in plural.""This is the pay I had to price to recruit the Skitarius" The two bed bunks then crossed, the defeated and broken bodies of your enemies passing next to you two. "And that's the price they had to pay..."
>>38873039sounds like she could use the bulk up pills that we took way back when, when we joined the IG
>>38873354I really don't want to go through much trouble to make a new sword...
>>38873440honestly we could still salvage it. It did well the arm failed not it.
>>38873440We wont be able to remake it here do to Inquisitor cameras EVERYWHERE!Otherwise we get busted for tech heresy on camera...
>>38873440why would you not want to salvage our awesome tech-heresy sword?
>>38873490>implying an Admech cant fool cameras....
>>38873526>Implying we wouldn't get caught considering we're being explicitly watched for tech heresy.
>>38873526Its inquisitor tier cameras.Only teh upper echelons of Admech have the power, skill, and pull to make the Inquisition go fuck itself much less tell them to.
>>38873354"I will need them to be repaired and in a functioning condition for tomorrow morning, will it be possible?"He looked at them and then back at you, he seemed to have a newly gained mix of fear and respect towards you."Y-yes! But all the operation rooms will be full for most of the day with them. In case you want to get something from us you will have to wait at the night hours."It seems that your lack of arm would have to wait for now. Unable to do anything about it you just nodded back and thanked the machine god for his services and loyalty.Your recruiting work was done, it was just 12am. You still had plenty of time (12 hours until midnight).>Try to find the penal guard and ask them how have they been doing.>Try to find other survivors and ask them their experiences about what happened in Plinia Vesus>Spend time taking care of Lanky.>Speak and spend time with some other character ( Inquisitor Karelia, daughter Mellizune, Marine Juliannus... )>Train with your weapons>Examine/Improve your weapons>Explore the ship.>Rest.>Improve your bionics ( NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL 10PM )>Free action.I also want you to write how many time does he spend doing the chosen action. Minimum is 1 hour and maximum is 5 hours.
>>38873548that just means we have to work on our delegation skills, find someone agreeable who isn't being watched quite as hard
>>38873486>>38873508Going back to salvage once we get a new arm it is. Unless we took it with us at the time, but it wasn't written down anywhere.Or we remake it once aboard the frigate, where the inquisitor does not have eyes.Honestly I'm think it's easier to later just 'find' some STC blueprints for what we have and have and have others declare it Technosanctus Vertifidae. The best way to get away with heretek is having it not be heretek anymore.
>>38873601>>Spend time taking care of Lanky.
>>38873601Can we go back to acquire our arm or to be more precise the bionics we had installed within it?It REALLY can't exactly let that arm full of tech heresy just rust there...you know the Inquisition is gonna luv to take a look.
>>38873601>Try to find the penal guard and ask them how have they been doing. 2 hours>Try to find other survivors and ask them their experiences about what happened in Plinia Vesus 2 hours>Speak and spend time with some other character Marine Juliannus 1 hours>daughter Mellizune 1 hour>Spend time taking care of Lanky. 1 hour>Improve your bionics 2 hoursAlso take the blade with us if not the arm. after all the weapon did not fail only the arm connected to it did
>>38873678You are aware those survivors are busy getting mind wiped about Plinia Vesus right?Its Inquisitorial standard procedure.
for simplification purposes switch from this >>38873649 to this>>38873678
>>38873699we know that OOC not IC. Write up a better list if you don't like it.
>>38873678Does it really take that long to speak with Juliannus and Mellizune? I don't think we'll have much to talk about. Maybe Reduce the time for those and use the extra time to study our weapon a little more in depth? Use our x-ray to see the inner workings.
>>38873821Minimum time is 1 hour anon.
>>38873845Should I change minimum time to 30 minutes to make it more realistic?
>>38873857>>38873821You have to consider transit time.40k ships are retardly fuckhuge. It takes time to move around unless you got transporters.
>>38873857if you do>Examine/Improve your weapons 1 houror more time with lanky
>>38873910Okay that makes sense then. Never mind.This makes me consider 'discovering an SCT' for better travel inside a ship.
>>38873945Alternatively, I wonder if we can combine it with looking after Lanky instead. Fiddling with it while she's not taking up our attention.
>>38873974it's STC and even then it wouldn't be viable if the sip was under attack more than likely. Also teleporters are scary as fuck in this setting.(jumping into and out of the warp, and if you misjump which is surprisely common splay)>>38873996Good point.
Sorry for the wait, Im attending a important call.
>>38874017Np RL takes precedence.
>>38874005Sorry about the slip up.And I meant more like a better, faster, more reliable elevator or moving platform of some sort.Because let's face it, the ones the Imperium have in this setting are not great when compared to the ones in other sci-fi settings. They could stand to improve when it comes to common/mundane technology.
>>38874085True, still a good shot would take them out and stairs again. Still idea has merit.
>>38874085I always liked my GM's logic of Imperial tech is made up of half forgotten and overstretched tech that when it DOES go wrong(which it will) the best thing to do is throw more bodies at until it (somewhat) starts to work again.Hence why all the amazing amounts of personnel to compensate for when the half forgotten automated systems goes to shit which it will.It made a disturbing amount of sense of why the Imperial ships have so much manpower available.
>>38874159In an empire of trillions facing threats so horrific its cliche the value of life is nonexistent. Plus to bring things up to snuff the mechanicus would have to put themselves out of a job, while also violating their beliefs. While they've never shied away from the the latter (this is heretek quest after all) the former is unthinkable.
>>38874228I could see Heracor doing it with his love of efficiency. 20 years later this ship is so upgraded that it can go toe to toe with a tau battlefleet and a crew of 6 and half people.
>>38874159>>38874228plus from the perspective of those in the machine cult, not to mention general imperial citizenry, the distinction between pressworker and servitor is servitors carry out orders more precisely.
>>38874228Mechanicus are in charge of deciding where the bodies go/how and work on their stuff meanwhile. Basically in charge of the stuff that don't require any tech expertise.>>38874279That is assuming he doesn't get blammed for tech heresy thanks to his love of efficiency.>>38874285Servitors can be hacked just as easily as a pressworker can be corrupted.
>>38873678>Try to find the penal guard and ask them how have they been doing. 2 hoursFinding them was an impossible task, nobody seemed to know where they were. It was something really strange and hard to believe as those ragged soldiers stood out pretty noticeably between the more elegantly dressed crew.The strangest part was that even connecting yourself to the database available in the cogitator. While connected you could mentally ask for any part or person and it would be found instantly with the exception of the men and women you were looking for. Maybe they weren't on the database yet.After two hours of walking, asking and exploring the same database over and over you decided to dismiss it and do something else. >Current time: 2pm.>Try to find other survivors and ask them their experiences about what happened in Plinia Vesus. 2 hoursYou were luckier with the other survivors. They had several varying experiences, most had vague memories about how they ended in that ship, probably their feeble minds became so traumatized that they dug up those experiences as traumas and forgot about them. There were other few that were warriors or became attacked. They were scared of talking about what they saw and heard as they were travelling in an inquisitorial ship."I...saw one of those red men butcher a man in half and bite his head of...was that a xenos? What was doing a xenos in that cursed world?"
>>38874279I could see him doing that to his own baby (the vessel I mean) circulating the technology is different. Generally from my understanding the mechanicus pimp out their explorer and other vessels while leaving it baseline for what they produce for the Imperium at large. However I agree, that's something in Heracor's nature.
>>38874304It Wouldn't be Hersey as the admech does it to their own ships. They automate as much as they can, and there ships are always new looking and shiny. The upgrades aren't heretical just more expensive than human labor. I don't think our boss would care about costs much.>>38874350yup.>>38874317Probably an experiment gone wrong. Don't worry about it the planet got Exterminatus'd. You're safe here.
>>38874317Another one, a pilot, gave me a worse tale."My Valkyrie was flying the coast...scouting and giving support fire, I saw many good men and women jumping from a cliff to the sea lava below pushed by the enemy forces...I remember how one of them had its radio connected with mine and how unlucky that poor lad's death was. He didn't died from the fall nor landed on the sea, his body got nailed under some spiky volcanic rock, that shit was obsidian, have you seen obsidian wounds? They are ugly I tell you... From his position he got splashed from time to time with small lava drops that burned and pierced his skin... I don't know if he died asphyxiated from the toxic air, from loss of blood or whatever...I just know that I had to move away from that lost battlefield and that his dying screams followed me for miles."After about two hours listening to similar tales your guts became ill and you feel like puking.>Actual time: 4pm.>Speak and spend time with some other character Marine Juliannus 1 hoursJuliannus was on the training ground, apparently he had been training since he came there. For someone like him being able to move since so many years imprisoned was a bliss."Respectable Marine Juliannus, can we speak?"As he tore to bits another target he slightly looked towards you."I could rest for some time, techpriest."On his back magnetically attached stood the sword you found."Magnificent sword isn't it?" You said looking at it."Indeed, unworthy of your hands thought. I won't mind it as you were the one who found it."He didn't seemed to notice how damaged you were or he simply ignored it."What will happen with the fallen Space Wolf?"
>>38874492>>"What will happen with the fallen Space Wolf?"use his gene seed and become a tech-marine initiate
>>38874567that'd be cool
>>38874567>>38874590Pretty sure we're too old for the process to take. Plus that'd be heresy.
>>38874611How would it be heresy?
>>38874626Yeah Space it would. hell it's heresy for a guardsman to hold a spent bolter shell without having inquisitorial blessing. Wish I was joking.
>>38874611I didn't know there was an age limit, but what part of that would be heresy, Im talking get Juiliannus to start the induction process on us, like uber bionics upgrade
>>38874654There is initiation, genetic screening, and testing before it can happen.
>>38874654Heracor was 34 at the start of the Quest. I would say hes close to 35 now. Pretty young for a techpriest but old as fuck for a marine initiate. Besides most of his body is chopped up, were could they install some of the marine organs?Reference: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/dha-show.php?charnum=57900
>>38874654The gene-seed is still the property of the Wolves, and they're rather touchy about others taking it. Plus that seed is way mutated, we'd likely die than become a marine.
>>38874654I think you can't graft the seed on someone too old. Luthor, the guy who raised Lion El'Jonson, couldn't get it and had to become a space marine through other means.Also, training would suck, and personally I don't want to get commited to a chapter and have to go fight everything with no time to do heretek stuff because the rest of our time is used maintaining and repairing equipment and vehicles.
>>38874705Yup.>>38874703Initiates are usually in their teens or early twenties at oldest. We'd die. Especially taking into our prospective stock.>>38874654Bionics are alright. Gene-seed? We'd die.
>>38874681we can totally make that happen.... right?...rule of cool ACTIVATE!>>3887470340k wiki said they send an inducted space marine to train for 30 years to make him a techmarine, figured we could do it in reverse order, but I guess not>>38874705yea, forgot about that part, oh well was just a thought
>>38874749*LutherThough it makes me think of how superman's nemesis would fit in this setting.
>>38874492The marine seemed doubtful of answering that question, but at the end as you were part of the close retinue as he was he ended answering."The Chapter of Russ has been advised of the fall of their brother. They will be waiting at our destination and in order to avoid creating rumors and other false beliefs the body will be given in secret."It was a shame that such a fierce and great warrior had to be transported in secret as if it were something to be embarrassed of. But after some seconds you understood his stance. People were really impressionable and if the fact that some marines would come to receive a dead Astartes entire worlds could be filled with impressionable, hard to believe and somewhat dangerous rumors."Understood...and what about you, Juliannus?"He lowered his head as if he felt ashamed."My debt hasn't been paid, in fact I think that because of the humiliation of being imprisoned, unable to serve the Imperium for so long, my obligation has become even bigger." He grabbed his plasma pistol and masterfully blew to bits four targets, smoke coming from the destroyed debris. "I will travel with the Inquisitor and hunting witches along with her, when she believes my debt to be paid I will be able to contact my battle brothers and inform them of my rejoining."Juliannus seemed to be excited about the idea of hunting witches and heretics no matter how much it could take him. Honestly he might even end spending the rest of the Inquisitor's life and even follow her daugther's order once she died. For some reason you doubted that even with two entire lives serving the Inquisitor he would feel like his debt was fully paid."Do you have any idea of what our destination is and what our next mission is?" You ended asking.
>>38874942"A system called Charonis, it is unknown for me but I heard some people outside murmur how they were scared of going in there. Our visit in there will consist of various missions and tasks it seems. I was only informed of the Space Wolf's transfer."Charonis wasn't a System you knew about either. With a reverence and a acknowledgement for his time you went back from his training room to the main corridors.>Actual time: 5pm.Speak and spend time with Mellizune: 1 hourYou were really curious about the small girl. Not only was she a psyker but also the daughter of an Puritan Ordo Malleus Inquisitor and a Radical Ordo Hereticus inquisitor. Her room was one of the biggest in the Mansion, it was filled with all kinds of toys and a bed worthy of a King. There were sweets and foods that some of the crew only could dream of."Are you here for the tea Mister Machine Man?"She seemed to be as innocent yet dangerous and ever, but also more cheerful, maybe being back in her room once again instead of a grimm subterranean bunker made her gleeful. Even if her powers seemed to not work on yourself you didn't dared to say no. Who knows what her mother could do to you if she snitched and said that you mistreated her.Sitting on a small wooden chair she gave you an empty ceramic cup."I have metal legs like you too!""T-they are pretty." You whispered."They are not! But I don't know where they came from! If I knew I would punish the one who gave me those for not giving me pretty princess legs like the one Momma has."Your hand started shivering slightly. It was good that her mother erased her mind and made her forgot that you were the cause of her robotic walking aid, on the other side her forgetting that also meant that she know didn't knew that you saved her."Careful! You are gonna spill all the tea!""I'm sorr-sorry!""This tea is gathered from leaves from four systems and heated with the sacred springs of an Ecclesiastes world!"
>>38875329Do point out she'll likely get better looking legs once she's fully grown. At least she can walk on her own right now.Also 4 systems and sacred springs? Yeah Girl's going to be spoiled by this place. Glad we can mentally disapprove and not get blamed for it. Also we have a great poker face.
>>38875329Even if the tea was imaginary it was ridiculous the traits and qualities that she gave to it. This itched you off as you were now playing pretend with not only and imaginary item but also whose properties were pretty much impossible."Do not worry Mellizune. I am sure your Mother will get you better ones as you grow up.""Did you know that Mommy forced Daddy having me?" She said completely ignoring you.You almost spat your imaginary tea."What?""Mmmh!" She nodded. "Mommy told me that Daddy was a grumpy man that disliked her but that she obliged him to have me with her powers. That I am the living proof of his hip...hyppocresai and that he had to took care of me as a reminder of his weak mind and his views!" She seemed to be proud of remembering it all even if she mispronounced the word hypocrisy and she obviously didn't understood what her mother truly did.Shortly after that you felt so awkward and nervous that you didn't had another option but to go.>Actual time: 6pm.>Spend time taking care of Lanky. 1 hourLanky continued in a forced and artificial coma. You still using your only arm grabbed her thin and bony hand and stretched it as you told her how your day was. Honestly you felt as if she were the only person you could tell everything since your brainchip decided to stop working. You wouldn't do it thought, there were eyes and ears everywhere."I have been recruiting people to repair the same ship you were in...It's the last thing I can do to repay the favor that such a great machine spirit did for us." No answer, only the beeping of her vitae recording machine."Techpriests in there are very specialized, they focus on only thing only, I am somewhat suited to do most things but not reach their levels of efficiency it seems..."You thought of criticism the brutal Skitarii temple that was installed there but since you were observed you decided to shut up and transform your experiences into a praise of some sort.
>>38875556All admech tend to be gifted with astoundingly good poker faces. One of the perks of the job great fucking poker faces.>>38875669ahem holy shit her momma is scary. Damn it should of gone with the guard or something...
>>38875669Holy shit... Lets not fuck with this woman... I am now terrified. She will probably brutalize us and kill us after lecturing us on the stupidity of our actions if we ever cross her.
>>38875669"I have also lost an arm...Nothing to worry about thought. I will soon be as strong as before, maybe even more."With those last words you clenched her hand hard, maybe trying to trigger a response with some pain stimulation but there was no answer. Sighing loudly you continued next to her for some more minutes, observing her and checking the machines over and over.At the end you convinced yourself that everything was good.>Actual time: 7pm. Still 3 hours left until we are able to modify and repair ourselves.>Try to find the penal guard and ask them how have they been doing. ( Impossible )>Try to find other survivors and ask them their experiences about what happened in Plinia Vesus ( Already done. Able to be repeated )>Spend time taking care of Lanky. ( Already done )>Speak and spend time with some other character ( Inquisitor Karelia, daughter Mellizune, Marine Juliannus... ) ( Juliannus and Mellizune done )>Train with your weapons>Examine/Improve your weapons>Explore the ship.>Rest.>Improve your bionics ( NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL 10PM )>Free action.
>>38875778>>38875734I thought that introducing a female to male rape reference into a non-smut quest was impossible but we made it!
>>38875734The guard would have been politically safer, but a lot slower. Plus we know she was going to do horrible things to Lanky. She's a bitch, arrogant, narcissistic but cunning and brutal.>>38875778If we cross her it has to be final and permanent. Otherwise yeah. Til then We can play our roll as cowed little Techpreist too timid to fight the big bad inquisitor.>>38875804>Examine/Improve your weapons 1 hour>Explore the ship. 1 hour>Train with your weapons 1 hour
>>38875804>Examine/Improve your weaponsThat gun aught to have schematics and a pattern designation. Go to the appropriate temple if we need extra help.
>>38875804Can we retrieve our bionics within the lost cyberarm that was cut off?
>>38875977Look, I know you all seem to love that arm but the leader said that every bionic that gets destroyed on the arena stays in the arena, I'm sorry about that. On the bright side you all will soon get new shiny toys to play with.
>>38876010I think we were more worried about the arm getting us blammed for heresy than anything.
>>38876010People are still going through the 5 stages of loss. That arm was our waifu man, it always was at our side, ready to defend us, happy to take our initiative, and even pleasured us on many lonely nights. Of course people are upsetAlso I was in the hand waifu true waifu route
>>38876061We were the third wheel on that relation. There were two machine spirits, the electric and the power one and they fused when we created the weapon. They just let us use them from time to time...we were somewhat like the fuckbuddy of a machine spirit couple
>>38876125Then we'll create a new electro-power sword with only one spirit.Later, when it's convenient to do so. Because now on a ship with hidden cameras who knows where is a bad time.
>>38876010Its a matter of tech heresy and the fact that the bionic inside it may still be good(see our sneaky sword).
>>38875861>Examine/Improve your weapons 1 hourYou took your weapon to examine it again. This time you went back to the AdMech cathedral. With permission of a Magos and after telling her that you are part of Karelia's retinue she let you use her machinery.After a long analysis of almost forty minutes this was the result that the scanner and analyzer gave you.>>+++STATUS REPORT+++<<>Item:Modified Batross Pattern Plasma Rifle>Forge World of Origin: Unknown.>Ammunition system:Vacuum Sealed Hydrogen Fuel Cells (VSHFC) // Continuous Hydrogen Feeding. (CHF)>Capacity:VSHFC: 60 shots // CHF: Unlimited charge while capacitor is functioning.>Range:Mid-Low ( 100 to 50 feet )>Special qualities:++It is believed that the techpriests who built and designed this weapon were somehow able to give corrosive properties to the plasma fire it generates.++The projectile will feed upon metal and leave a rust covered hole were it impacts.++It is less thermally efficient. It's projectiles generate less heat but the weapon's machine spirit is less prone to dangerous outburst.++After a long analysis it this weapon has been sanctified and it isn't thus considered tech-heresy.So. What you got onto your hand/s was a Batross pattern plasma rifle. You never heard of this weapon before but you were glad of it. It's unusual properties were something worthy of study.>Actual time: 8pm.
>>38876562Woo not a heretical weapon. >Explore the ship. 2 hoursneed to see everything and know about the hidden shortcuts.
>>38876562Woot! Its legal baby! Children in elementary school can use this thing!
>>38876562>Explore the ship. 1 hourThe ship wasn't as crowded as the Imperial Cruiser were you were firstly transported in. It was also more decorated and there were even some elegant pictures and other art forms the closer you got to the Mansion where the Inquisitor lived in.The ship was classified in several kind of levels; Servitor areas, Slave grounds, Crew zones, Guard's Habitaculums, AdMech Cathedral, Common grounds and finally the High levels where the Inquisitor and other high powers lived and worked completely isolated from the "lower" classes.With some exceptions every area had a cleaning room, a training zone, dormitories and canteens. Guards and the higher levels had recreation areas of their own as on their own words they deserved them because they were the only ones who risked their lives outside of the ship. Those areas were mostly places to play games on and carry prostitutes when docked on some space station.There were some shortcuts, those were mostly so the different crews didn't encounter and interfere with each other. Even if they served the same function for each of the working classes those secret paths also reflected the people they were designed for. Servitor shortcuts were almost always a slow conveyor belt that took them to one side or other of the ship almost automatically. Slave shortcuts were small holes that from time to time had to be be crossed on four legs, it is rumored that the slaves had to make their own shortcuts instead of possessing them like the rest of the crew. Guard, Crew and AdMech shortcuts were architecturally similar yet had different inscriptions on the walls, each one for their patron saints and reflecting their beliefs. Finally the shortcuts the Inquisitor and her closest men could use were as lavish and elegant as the rest of the ship they belonged to, there were even some maids and butler on those shortcuts whose only job was to serve the people who walked by.
I'm gonna end with training for one hour and then head to bed. We will do the bionics on Wednesday. In case any of you has a cool idea for a bionic feel free to propose it here or in my skype.
>>38876858sounds good to me. thanks for running man.
>>38876858I meant to say twitter, not skype.
>>38876858Sounds good. Would pneumatic spear tip launcher plus cahins/rope be out of bounds?
>>38876858Our hand hold a variety of built in modular tools that we can use at any time? It loses hand functionality while using this but it is easily retractable unless damaged.
>>38876804>Train with your weapons 1 hourNow that you knew what your plasma rifle was able to do you decided to try it. You headed to the same training room were not long ago Juliannus was training. Unsurprisingly he still was in there swinging his sword and training has hard as ever. He completely ignored you.You needed to use a small box to maintain the rifle steady but after you were all settled you manage to shoot a few bulleyes and see the devastating effect that your weapon had. It first burned them and then the slag acted as some kind of acid burning the target even more. In metallic objectives it was able to punch a pack and devour some of the armor, rusting and weakening as the seconds passed. On organic objectives, be it wood or meat it was even able to generate fire from the heat and the burning in some few cases.It's recoil was kinda powerful but with two arms it would become bearable. After an hour practicing no more projectiles came from it. You depleted the fuel cell.You had the weapon but what about the ammo? When you had the lasgun the power packs were everywhere and could be charged in any station but now you had another ammo method and honestly, you didn't knew were could you get ammunition. Remembering back you recalled that the rifle had some way of getting a capacitor that gave it unlimited ammo. You would have to learn more about it to discover how was that possible.>Actual time 10pm
>>38876985Could be installed yes, but have in mind that most people in 40k is ridiculously armored and strong. In case you chainstab someone it could use the chain in his favor and grab you towards him.>>38877192Some kind of stump that can do a lots of things? Like the kind of tool R2D2 has? I guess that while possible it would leave Heracor lacking one hand. I do not think it will be worth.
Ok then. I'm uploading the thread to the archive now. As usual I'll leave 30 minutes to answer questions and give suggestion and critics.
>>38877289>>38877273I was thinking it'd act like a normal hand until it transforms into a swiss army knife array of tools.
>>38877408>Novice Heretek Quest 22I don't know. The hand would be extremely complex and fragile and besides give a lot of advantage. I'll consider it STC-tier bionics, nigh impossible to get but exists
>>38877453Shit, I meant to paste another thing:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Novice%20Heretek%20QuestIt is uploaded ^^
>>38877289Thanks for running. Since we have the knowledge to make pseudo power weapons could we do that to a metallic wire/rope/braid and use it as a whip. We could get an extra limb or dendrite from our back and have it pop out and rotate the wire in a cone or circular motion so no actual whip skill (though we should practice anyway) would be needed.
>>38877478It could also be detachable in-case it gets stuck or a hugeass demon grabs it.
>>38877509>>38877478I haven't heard of anything like a power-whip. Wouldn't that be tech-heresy of the biggest kind? INVENTING!
>>38877453Alright.Dart launchers? Either coated with a frictionless material or loaded with a variety of poisons or knockout drugs.Pile Driver? Basically a hidden spike that shoots out of hand via pneumatics to pierce heavy armor.Reinforced housing for it so we don't lose it? Maybe some better aesthetics to it too if any of our brothers are feeling artistic.Shocking talons/nails for ripping and grasping? Spare ammo storage?>>38877534Power scythes are a thing, so I imagine somewhere someone got a whip approved.
>>38877534Probably not heresy, its the same principle. Given it needs to be able to flex (the whip) I imagine it would be more delicate than other power weapons, and would have more inherent risk to the wielder (Not that whips are super hard to handle but there is a bigger possibility than with a rigid weapon). Probably more a specialist thing for soft targets or royally messing up a big target before the wire sustained too much use. Its unorthodox but more extreme things have not been outright rejected. (though I'm sure tech super puritans would scoff at it)
>>38877534>>38877561Also dart launcher idea sounds like it would be simpler to get a needler, which is pretty much the same thing in universe. Actually with the utility of a needler (knockout, super lethal to bio enemies, tracking needles maybe) we need to get one.
>>38877561>Dart launchers? Either coated with a frictionless material or loaded with a variety of poisons or knockout drugs.That's Callidus Assasin level stuff. Maybe in the future.>Pile Driver? Basically a hidden spike that shoots out of hand via pneumatics to pierce heavy armor.I'll accept this.>Reinforced housing for it so we don't lose it? Maybe some better aesthetics to it too if any of our brothers are feeling artistic.I already thought on armor with some..."aesthetics" to it.>Shocking talons/nails for ripping and grasping? Not a lot ones tho, that shit can easily be turned into something Khornate.>Spare ammo storage.This is somewhat half written already.>>38877648I will allow it but with some penalties.-The only "power" thing of the weapon is the blade on the tip. The rest are just leather covered cables.-In case those cables got cut then its a worthless blade.-It is unfeasible to use it to grab edges or other protruding things Indiana Jones style because the power blade could end easily destroying the object it is grabbed to.
>>38877534Also while we're tech oriented, aka machine cult, I suppose Heracor could be said to be a (warrior)monk that is unorthodox, ehh? One who came back from the (brain)dead? Hard to kill etc.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdkBs0VCSX0
>>38877813Ha! A friend of mine got spit in the eye by a the singer of DragonForce during a concert because they wore the red and black makeup that Turisas usually wears. Worst of it is that they are kinda proud of it.
>>38877807I will allow it but with some penalties.-The only "power" thing of the weapon is the blade on the tip. The rest are just leather covered cables.-In case those cables got cut then its a worthless blade.>It is unfeasible to use it to grab edges or other protruding things Indiana Jones style because the power blade could end easily destroying the object it is grabbed toThat sounds more like a chain and sickle, which is totally awesome and far better than my original whip idea. Lets do it!
>>38877872Ooopps, didn't green the whole thing, oh well
>>38877807Alright that's fair.>Built in grappling hook?Quick escapes>DendritesSeriously those things are pretty damn useful>Built in flamerLimited fuel supply but pretty handy>Built in Melta gun/chargeSo damn many uses in if it's a one off.>CameraSurprise useful if we get a good model to go with it.
>>38877807And yet again, I've completely missed a sweet Novice Heretek thread. When are you going to run again Axsisel, in EST?
>>38877963He usually runs Wednesday and Sunday at noon est. Check his twitter for updates and all.
>>38877858Eh, I'm sure some people would pay for that sort of thing. Wasn't aware of a feud between the bands (then again I never look into that stuff), or was it just a myriad of other possibilities, y'know, other than liking another band that's not them.
>>38877904>Built in grappling hook?It is possible. It's pretty low tech but have in mind that Heracor is pretty heavy after so many metal bits. A tree branch might not hold his weight.>DendritesHe has got already six. That's the top for any non modified back, in case he wants more he will also need more space on its body. While possible it won't be as easy as it seems.>Built in flamer // Built in Melta gun/charge Where would you want to have it installed?>CameraEye lenses will be able to be upgraded to a camera and video camera. Be advised, recording the Inquisitor without her permission is Heresy. Recording the Loli daughter of the Inqusitor is SUPER HERESY.>>38877963Probably Wednesday at 10 am EST. It will be 4pm for me. Timezone differences suck balls.
>>38878366hmm In would likely be a nozzle out of or near the hand and powered/fueled by inside the arm, like I said one offs or emergency weapons.As for recording Why would we do that to the daughter? As for the inquisimom I figure we store anything on her right next to our brain virus.
>>38878366As fa/tg/uy down under I can attest to that. Oh well, hopefully I can catch the first few hours of your quest then.
>>38878545I will accept a hose that can be charged with different liquids in a backpack ( promethium, water, acid... ) and shoot from the arm. But a secret flamethrower might be too much.About the Brain Virus. It is the knowledge of the Heretek, the more corrupt we become the more we will unlock and learn. Theoretically if we remain loyal the data will degrade and erase over time.>>38878586I would stay until later if I could but my body has limits. Albeit I gotta say that I'm getting used to this. In the first threads after five hours or so my eyes were all watery and itchy, it doesn't happens anymore.
>>38878864What I meant was hiding the data next to or near it since it's way worse and can easily screw anyone sifting our brain over. I mean at that point we might as well fuck over the guy whose in our brain.
>>38878977I'd imagine its possible, I'd rather wait until we actually want to record something top secret of the inquisitor's before we cross that bridge. It seems kinda crazy to me that right off the bat we seem set on crossing the big I. I would hope down the line we have an exit strategy, but this much right off the bat is ridiculous. We should definitely be wary, but for now the inquisitor is our cash cow.
>>38879515I'm not saying I don't relate to that train of thought BTW, it just seems crazy to go full murderhobo super paranoid in a setting where we're quite powerless. That being said if shit goes south that frigate we're fixing up will likely be our lifeline, we should build/plan some contingency plans relating to it.
>>38879515Well yeah we don't do it unless it damning but I can't think of a better place to hide files than there. She's a radical not a matter of if but when she'll do something heretical.>>38879572Obviously. just contingency right now.
