You were forcefully implanted a brain chip that made you into little more than a working drone; nullified your emotions and willpower. One day for unknown reasons the chip stopped working and you were returned to your former self. You felt the need of vengeance, right now you are travelling the Galaxy trying to become stronger to return one day and fight the ones that enslaved your mind.>Main Mission: - Become stronger and fight the Magus that installed the chip on your brain.>>Secondary Missions: - Win the race, reunite with your family.>>Optional Missions: - Win the three races. [[ 1 OF 3 WON ]]>Cruiser Areas:http://pastebin.com/MLma8xTp>CURRENT LOCATION: SEGMENTUS OBSCURUS // TRAVELLING THE WARP // INSIDE AN SPACE HULK // EXPLORATOR CRUISER // WEAPON CONTROL ROOM
Since I had to suddenly halt my last session this one will beggin with a somewhat long starter>This isn't your war, don't shoot.In front of you lied the massive war theater that the outer shell of the Hulk had become. Orks and Chaos Space Marines fought fiercely among the feet of the colossal titans, from your position it even looked as if they were little more than puppets. The massive Gargant opened its large metallic jaw and revealed its pilot, who was nobody but the Ork’s brutal leader, Morguk Madloota. He gave the finger to the Daemon; something which the War Machine repeated simultaneously with its massive piston claws. The Strange purpleish Daemon laughed at its provocation with a cacophonous guffaw that reverberated like a sonic explosion and burst several heads and windows around it. How it could generate sound in the void was something that you couldn’t even start to grasp. Morguk smashed some buttons and from the titan’s back a large cannon like weapon activated and placed itself on its shoulder. The Warboss didn’t doubted it and jumped into the guts of the weapon, shortly after a flamer wielding ork warrior appeared after accompanied with several grots to ignite the cannon’s fuse. Instead of using the flamer to directly do it he ended burning his grot slaves and letting them run amok as they burned to death and screamed to them to run towards the fuse and stop being pansy gits. When the fuse was completely burnt it launched the Warboss like a homing missile towards the daemon. The warp creature used its many arms to unhinge its jaw and open its mouth in an unimaginable way, turning it into a gaping maw that was horrific and scarring to look at. Using its bear trap arm the Warboss clawed the daemon’s mutated uvula and pushed himself into its mouth, something that the Daemon accepted gladly as it swallowed him alive and ignored the fire and smog that his massive cannon arm launched.
>>42681718Once it was inside of the beast the Daemon closed its mouth with no apparent damage. From time to time a column of fire pierced the Slaaneshi Daemon from the inside but this only seemed to pleasantly stimulate the warp beast in unspeakable ways, as the time advanced the fire columns started coming from lower points, the Warboss was being devoured alive, just as it was on the Daemon’s stomach level it used its clawed fingers and limbs to pierce itself in hopes of stabbing the Ork. All this nonsense of self-deprecation and mutilation seemed to give an intense pleasure to the daemon as it started gushing some thick liquid from its crotch, anybody who became covered on this substance, be it completely or partially transmuted into solid gold and became a statue whose expression was filled with a mix of horror and pleasure on the Marine’s case and complete confusion on the orks. You decided you had enough, this wasn’t your war and you better not participate tYou had to be losing your mind. That combat defied all that you had learned about physics and how nature worked. The Omnissiah was not present on that battlefield; its laws were nonexistent for those combatants. They were an anathema to all you knew. Somewhat enraged you looked away and hoped for a Geller failure that would devour them all, even if it also meant your own demise. You weren’t only angry with those heretics and xenos but also with yourself. You didn’t know what you were and nobody seemed to know the answer either. Did you have a soul? Sometimes it looked like you didn’t but lately it seemed that you have become more human. Was that wrong?
>>42681734You have changed your body and covered it with bionics to be closer to the Machine God and abandon part of your humanity…but at the same time you also wanted to be considered part of that flawed human race. What was even the soul? You didn’t really know. Was it something manufacturable? …You felt as if you were a complete ignorant, as if you were supposed to hold the answers but were a fool who knew nothing. For all you knew you could be as horrifying as the Chaos Space Marines and Hereteks that roamed those dammed corridors. Maybe it wouldn’t been so wrong if you died, there were surely thousands of people who could take care of your daughter Alaria better than you… Liwet and your friends were also an anchor that made you hold onto your life but if at the end it is revealed that you are indeed a soulless monster…It wasn’t until you walked away that you noticed how tired you were. You tried to shrug it off and consider your suicidal thoughts as an effect caused for observing the Chaos entities and the raw energies of the warp. Knowing that you were alone and safe you headed out of the room and rested against the floor, instantly falling asleep. The time you woke up you felt somewhat better. You could have returned to looking at the great battle, to see if it ended and study the aftermath or if it was still ongoing. Still, it wasn’t any of your business. You better try to focus your mind onto praising the Omnissiah, otherwise it could happen that your thoughts could go stray again and make you feel saddening emotions that made you become anxious and stressed. Working on this ship would make you go once back to your former, glorious self!First thing was to clean it of the disgusting heretic and alien bodies that stained its sacred corridors and rooms.
>>42681749With the Help of the Currus Electricus Train you were able to quickly reach into the different areas and drag all the bodies into the last car for further incineration. As you were travelling you looked at the dead Tau warriors. Their pulse rifles had been able to make great blows onto the fear inducing Rak’Gol…you observed your Imperial Pulse Prototype and compared it with their versions.Your weapon was bulkier and heavier, it used dense steel and other ferromagnetic metals instead of the strange composite that the alien engineers had worked with. After some long hesitation you decide to remove their equipment and leave the dead bodies stripped alone, you did the same with the Ork Mechanic because its strange energy overchargeable bionics caught your interest. You have seen the Ork Meks several times building vehicles and other machines that shouldn’t truly work yet functioned, if you could learn some of their secrets it would surely come in handy.Once you have separated the Mek and Tau gear from their dead users you grabbed all the bodies and incinerated them with the help of a near forklift. Looking at them burn was somewhat pleasant and observing how the void devoured their ashes shortly after was incredibly relaxing. You were finally alone.After you had properly disposed of those remnants you headed into the warehouses. They were all separated into different aisles that were full of items and artifacts. Surely among those items there were many who were incorrectly classified but still the entire area was impregnated with a sense of order and tranquility.Which aisle should you explore first? Roll1d100. Highest of 3 wins>Weapons and Accessories >Bionics>Spare Mechanic components>Tools>Fuels>Clothing and cloths.>Chemicals
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>42681766>ToolsBetter tools means better work.
>>42681793You are a pretty quick reader anon.In case there isn't a bigger roll in the next ten minutes I'll let you roll 2 more times to see if you are luckier.
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>42681766>ToolsHi Ax, hope you're feeling better.
>>42681889Hey there anon. I'm feeling better yeah, I just got somewhat sick from the recent low temperatures that have been hitting my city lately. I thought I could roll with the quest but after some posts I started feeling worse and thus I decided to end it. My immune system ain't the best one.
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>42681793Sounds senseible
Alright, the three rolls have been done. The biggest one has been 49>41-50: You find some calibration specialized tools that let you attune all your weapons, armor and bionics and make them slightly better.Writing now.
>>42681766>You find some calibration specialized tools that let you attune all your weapons, armor and bionics and make them slightly better.You have been able to repair your gear so far but who knows when you will have the chance to do so again. Right now you are in a situation of relative peace but soon enough you will plunge once again into the battlefield. With a secure and steady pace you stride into the "Tools" aisle into the search of portable devices that might help you maintain and repair your equipment even when hell breaks loose.Among the seemingly endless corridors and shelves of infinite eight you find many tools of strange form and uses. Some are as small as a thumb while others need an entire shelf to be stored. Many of them are pretty exotic to you, surely they have been designed to be used on the most specialized and possibly strange areas of work. Ironically enough finding common tools like a caliber or a electroscrew was being a near impossible task. It seemed that there was no place for such mundane utensils among those walls. Luckily for you some points you managed to find several items that fit your criteria and needs. Those were an autohammer, a multi-torch, an omnimeasurer, two bottles of gluepoxy and finally an old and heavy cordless drill that could also function as an screw. Once you had all them you started to work on calibrating your weapons, with the exception of the Imperial prototype Pulse Gun, as it was brand new and didn't seemed to need any kind of correction measure.
>>42682291Your chainsword was almost clogged with a mix of dust, dirt and dried blood. After opening and cleaning you were surprised by how such a small case could store such a great quantity of waste. Once it was fully cleaned and oiled it worked way better and faster, making it as deadly as the first day.The third coil of your acidic plasma gun was misaligned with the rest. If you had shoot it would have surely gone into a critical mass failure and explode violently. You managed to calibrate it before it hurt you, pleasing its machine spirit along the way.The rest of your weapons needed some cleaning and mild calibration but there wasn't anything alarming on them. Happy with your result you looked back at the entrance from were you came:>Explore againChoose one aisle and roll 1d100 again.>Go back to the captain's quarters and search for the password to unlock the entire ship.>Write in.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>42682306>BionicsI just like upgrading ourselves.
>>42682306>Go back to the captain's quarters and search for the password to unlock the entire ship.We could grab the eldar now that the Warboss is dead. Time to crash this hulk, with no survivors.
>>42682338We might find them, still we don't have anybody to install them. I have planned giving you the chance of getting updates after the races are over. I have a great list of possible bionics written on paper so don't worry anon.>>42682370>Time to crash this hulk, with no survivors.Not even us?
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>42682306>Bionics
>>42682370>implying that killed the warbossAnd that aside, didn't we see the eldar cop it?
>>42682406>Not even us?Can a soulless being be said to survive even if they make it out still moving?
>>42682426But are we truly soulless? Psychic powers have affected us lately. Do you think that we have a soul or we don't?
>>42682412I missed that bit. Link?
>>42682471Sorry, it was several threads ago or so and I can't remember which one.
>>42682406>not even us?Well, I did mean us and that Eldar ponce to survive. It's just a Bane meme, Axsisel.
>>42682412The Eldar left us the moment we destroyed the Atraviserextremis servoskulls to fulfill his own agenda. >>42682501Sorry. I haven't seen the Dark Knight Saga. I'm not a Batman person myself.
>>42682520>The Eldar left us the moment we destroyed the Atraviserextremis servoskulls to fulfill his own agenda.I could have sworn he was said to have died...Then again, I've largely been catching up on the archives in a rush recently so I may well be mistaken.
>>42682546We got distracted watching how the Rogue Trader ship went to hell ( Literally ) and the moment we focused back he was long gone. Maybe I didn't expressed myself correctly enough.>>42682411Since you have gotten such a great roll I will make it so we can get and install bionics now.
>>42682306>Explore again ( Bionics )The Bionics aisle was filled to the tops. There were heads, legs, organs and everything imaginable lying around. Their construction was the closest thing you had seen to perfection. Everything, from their form to mechanisms seemed to work perfectly and be very pleasant aesthetically.Among their bionics stood out a use of dark coloured bionics that were filled silvery circular filigrees that became illuminated with a plasma like white-blue light when activated as decoration and the use of white robes that started being gradually darker until it turned completely dark with a nice gradient effect.The cables they used were golden in color and were apparently covered with a electroluminiscent substance that made them glow with a dim orange light whenever a electric current crossed them. But honestly, that wasn't the best that was on that room. At the end of the Aisle lied a capsule looking device that seemed to be closely related to the scanner of the Medicae Bay. The capsule wasn't only able to scan you but also to install Mechanicus approved bionics on your body. There is some dry blood on the entrance to the capsule but you aren't truly sure if they are from an unlucky user or are a byproduct of the recent combat that had developed in there between the Tau and the Rak'Gol.>Get some bionics and store them. Wait until someone properly qualified can install them.>Risk yourself and get into the machine.>Write in.
>>42682842Do a diagnostic on the machine, then decide.
>>42682842>Examine capsule more closely to ascertain its safety>Risk yourself and get into the machine.We never got anywhere by being overly cautious toward upgrades
Mayhaps see about getting our wraithbone ribs replaced while we are here.Don't want to end back home with those still in us.
>>42682842>Examine capsule more closely to ascertain its safety>Risk yourself and get into the machine.You search for a back panel and once you have found and open it you use some cables to connect yourself into its mainframe, once the connection is done you sit on the cold and dead floor and lean against the machine, you two are one now.By looking at its files you see several registers of bionics installation, removal or exchange and a video attached to each of them. Apparently this reactor was used to both upgrade techpriests or other personnel but also to create servitors.After a while you manage the find the recording of the user who made those bloodstains. Most users of the machine entered inside sedated and were maintained still by the use of hydraulic clamps that were inside. The less the patient moved the lesser the risk was. That blood pertained to a wounded Ogryn auxiliary that was apparently heavily damaged during a Tau raid, he was apparently heroic enough to be considered for salvation by applying bionics or maybe so strong that the techpriests wanted to recycle him into a brutish servitor worker. He was at first unconscious due to its wounds and thus a couple of servitors were able to shove him inside with no problem. It was when the doors sealed and the process started that the problems began. For starters he was so big that the hydraulics were unable to hold him still, shortly after he woke up and it was then when his claustrophobia kicked in.
>>42683244--Using his abhuman muscles he started banging the sealed door as best as he could but not even he could bulge it. The automatic process continued it with nobody else noticing his struggle as they were apparently busy dealing with other wounded.The rest of the video is kind of blurry and messy to see. The blood stains the camera as a buzzsaw tried to cut the stump he had for arm for a better replacement. The last thing you saw was how he slid on his own cut and bleeding arm and his head plunging into the active saw.By the time the door opened it liberated several gallons of blood, a decapitated head and a heavy body that fell afterwards. Apparently they left the blood in there as a reminder of what can happen if people don't respect the machines and their spirits and an unwritten rule of not getting Ogryns inside of it.You still had a couple of sleeping pills and painkillers that you had produced, maybe you could use them now to induce a relaxed sleeping like status and make the process as painless as possible.>Choose what bionics to install. Use the pills and enter the machine.>Choose what bionics to install. Keep the pills and painkillers for another use. Activate the noise dampener to not hear yourself screaming.>Do not enter. Grab some bionics and keep them for yourself until someone can install them.>Do not enter. Explore some other time. >Write in.
>>42683265>Choose what bionics to install. Use the pills and enter the machine.
>>42683265>>Choose what bionics to install. Use the pills and enter the machine.Yeah, I'd rather not risk a botchjob because we were stingy with pills.Hoping for a major overhaul on our remaining squishy torso.
Taking the pills it is. The next update will take some time as I have to write all the bionics. Stay tuned!
>>42683265>Choose what bionics to install. Use the pills and enter the machine.Even if you weren't tired right now a mix of those two drugs would surely leave you docile enough for the machine to handle you.Before that you decided to see what bionics could be installed on you. Heading back into the shelves you started to look at them:>Electroluminus Limbs:Weaker and more delicate than your current limbs but can charge your own bioelectricity and release it. It They were part of the regular equipment of the Cruiser's Electro-Priests.>Teslaskin:Exchanges your dermis with a membrane that is covered in barely visible electoos and bioelectric generators. If activated it will cover you in an electric aura that will render you untouchable for a short period of time.It looks like a normal skin but from time to time some small circles or lines will illuminate across the surface of your body. It will also let you sweat, in fact that sweat will help it charge even more.>Reactive Trauma Dermis:A soft layer of gel that attaches to the skin and bionics. It gives you a strange shiny reflection as if you were made from latex. It is able to stop punches and other solid impacts by becoming harder once contact is made. It is invisible under normal circumstances and turns dark grey and somewhat rocky shaped when it receives an impact.It doesn't protects against cutting or energy weapons. It used in conjunction with the Teslaskin it will lose half of its potency due to the gel being a really bad energy conductor.
>>42684066>Auto-Sanguine:Small nanomachines that are injected on your skin, it will clean you of any impurities and slowly heal your wounds. It cannot be used at the same time with Auto-Reparo or Auto-Nanites.>Auto-Reparo:Small nanomachines that are injected in the cables and oil tubes of your bionics, it will slowly repair them. It cannot be used at the same time with Auto-Reparo or Auto-Nanites.>Auto-Nanites:Small nanomachines that can function on both organic and mechanic interiors. They can both repair and heal but in comparison with Auto-Sanguine/Repair they are as double as slow.>Eyeblind:This device is attached to the back of a head and if activated generates a intense light around your head, making you completely anonymous and unrecognizable. The user can see without any problem. This light isn't affected by cameras or other electronic sight devices. Cannot be installed at the same time with Lensblind and PsyBlind.>Lensblind:Similar to Eyeblind this bionic is attached to the back of the head and is able to generate a scrambling wave that turns your face into a blurry mess that cannot be recorded or seen by some scopes. Cannot be installed at the same time with Eyeblind and PsyBlind.>Psyblind:This strange device is installed on the back of the head and has a dissonant symbol made from a psyk-reactive copper alloy that makes you become nigh undetectable by psychic means. Still organic and electronic eyes can see you.Cannot be installed at the same time with Eyeblind and Lensblind.
>>42684088>Cochlear Echolocator:Lets you hear and detect enemies. If you stay still for some time its effect further increases as it is able to eliminate the background noise.Standing still you can detect and hear possible enemies by just hearing their heartbeat.>Ghostsight:Lets you focus on a single point and see trough it, you need to focus for at least half a minute to start noticing its effects. It's not devised to be used offensively but since it uses X-Rays if you look at someone with the Ghostsight you can produce a Cancer.Only Adamantium and some strange xenos alloys are unaffected by it. >Thermoreactive LL ( Locking / Liberation ) System:It connects your limbs to your spine by some thick energy cables and are ended in a round generatorium that can generate and store great quantities of energy. Originally this bionic was devised to be used on mining servitors but lately it has seen some use among other techpriests and Skitarii as an emergency backup.It lets you mentally choose one or two of your limbs and locks you into a rigid position, the next three minutes it collects massive amounts of energy and it is then all released at once on the chosen limbs. This permits the user to land deadly punches or kicks that could rip in two a healthy human.If used on the two legs and the user gets on a crouched position the moment the energy is released it will make the user jump a great height.
>>42684104>Phoenix Emergency Defribilator:A small spheroid installed on your heart. It will automatically activate if it detects that it has stopped and try to revive you to avoid a clinical death. Its internal battery has to be recharged every 6 uses. In case the user has an artificial heart this number is reduced to 4, In case the user as a twin-binary cardiovascular system it will be reduced to 2 uses and finally if the user has two artificial hearts it will only be able to be used once.>Twin-Binary Cardiovascular System:Using a sample of your own DNA taken from your blood the machine will quickly clone your own heart and install in into your chest. In case one heart goes down the other will be there to save your life. It won't be as good as the Astartes counterpart but works on a similar principle.>Artificial Heart:A chemically and mechanically improved heart that is better with the transport of oxygen and will let the user run and do more exercise before getting tired. Users who install this also need to sleep less.
Those are all the bionics this time. Choose carefully!
>>42684066Can we get the Telsaskin over our normal arm and leg bionics? If so it would be a good idea, the ability to swear again would help cool our components and improve efficiency.>>42684088>Auto-Nanites>Psyblind>>42684104>Cochlear Echolocator (provided we can turn it on and off)>>42684125>Twin-Binary Cardiovascular System>Phonix Emergency DefribilatorDoes the Auto nanites fix the second heart if damaged? If so its a solid idea.
>>42684212>Can we get the Telsaskin over our normal arm and leg bionics?Yes. It is only visible on the organic parts but its effect also covers the bionic parts.>Cochlear Echolocator (provided we can turn it on and off)Yes. It can be turn off. Otherwise the ones who have it couldn't sleep and would end mad.>Does the Auto nanites fix the second heart if damaged? If so its a solid idea.Yes, but they aren't able to kickstart it. If the heart stops it isn't truly damaged, just paralyzed.
>>42684212This seems good, honestly. I think it makes for the best build. Ghostsight would've been neat if it didn't cause cancer.
>TeslaskinBadass, excellent counter to melee enemies>Cochlear Echolocator:Always useful>Twin-Binary cardiovascular systemMakes us even tougher, get.>Auto-NanitesA very versatile tool. My vote for these.
>>42684321Ghostsight can only produce a Cancer if you look at somebody while using it. Because you are pretty much blasting X-Rays at him.It doesn't causes any harm on the user.
>>42684321Didn't pick ghost sight because its long time to actually work. With the exception of a few rare situations we arn't going to be standing still staring at a bulk head for prolonged periods of time.
>>42684290Cool, then that list please.By the by, is there anyway to copy the designs from the ships drive into a portable thing like a mechanicus USB stick?
>>42684392>By the by, is there anyway to copy the designs from the ships drive into a portable thing like a mechanicus USB stick? mechanicUSBWell, after the operation you can try to go with a write in and explore the ">Spare Mechanic components" aisle for some dataslate and see if you are lucky with the rolls.
>>42684066>Teslaskin>Auto-Nanites>Psyblind>Cochlear Echolocator>Twin-Binary Cardiovascular System^Can this be installed with the artificial heart?
>>42684546Yes, we can have two artificial hearts. The only downgrade was that the Phoenix Defribilator would become single use.
>>42684527Sounds like a plan, letting all this knowledge go to waste would be a damn shame.Just have to make sure we don't download any space aids virus.
Here is how the votes are:>Two votes ( Winning so far )TeslaskinAuto-NanitesCochlear EcholocatorPsyBlindTwin Binary Cardiovascular System>Only one vote Phoenix Emergency Defibrillator
>>42684615In >>42684408, I was supporting his list so I voted for the defibrillator too.
>>42684683Oh, alright. I'll add the defibrillator to the list too then.
>>42684066You ended deciding over a list of upgrades that would help you in your quests, both to win this race but also in the future vengeance that you will inflict over the Magos of your homeworld Telematha.At the end you grabbed the Teslaskin, Auto-Nanites, Cochlear Echolocator, PsyBlind, Twin Heart and Phoenix Defibrillator.The Teslaskin looked like a transparent mesh that had a pattern of copper lines that were decorated with the same artistic style as the rest of the bionics of the Cruiser. The Auto-Nanites were a jar full of a transparent liquid that glowed every time you shook it and emanated a strange glow if put under the light, the Echolocator looked like a miniature vox-caster that looked incredibly delicate, the psyblind was a circular medallion, no bigger than a standard coin, looking at it made you feel somewhat dizzy and its drawing looked blurry no matter how hard you tried to look at it, the twin heart was just a punched card that carried along its pattern the necessary program for the machine to work and the defibrillator looked like a small battery with a rough spherical shape. Once you had them all you placed them on the deposit cages of the machine and ingested the pills, while you waited for the effects to work you started stripping and then headed inside.As the door closed and sealed several hissing sounds emanated, they indicated two things, one that the room was now sealed and two that the hydraulics were starting to activate to trap you. It was when they caught you that the effect of the drugs completely worked, from then one everything was a blur.Time didn't seemed to go faster but everything felt numb and emotionless. You in front of you how a needle dendrite sucked your blood and created a copy of your heart before using a scalpel to open your chest and install it inside of your chest.
>>42684703I support all my of the above
>>42685253Just between your two hearts lied the defibrillator, keeping its lifesaving charge for when the time came. It was then when it started using some low powered lasers to cut your skin in symetrical shapes. When it was done your skin fell on its own, leaving your musculature completely exposed and bleeding profusely. During the next minutes it started applying the new Skin over the old one. The mesh became pale white and you looked like a cadaver, hopefully it would turn a more vivid tone as time goes on. At the same time several needle dendrites stuck on your skin and hearts and started pounding the Auto-Nanites to fill your system with them.When the procedure was over it closed your chest with the use of staples. It wasn't clean but quick, efficient. You didn't felt anything at all but still it felt weird and strange.A small vibration on your nape and the sides of your head indicated that the Echolocator and the PsyBlind were being installed and bolted.Before ending the operation the floor opened and drained all the excess of blood and flesh, which made you think how much was the Ogryn able to bleed if not even the drain was able to absorb it all. After that a hot shower rained over you with a blow of cold air and some disinfectant dust that felt itchy even with your body sedated.Then the clamps liberated you and the door opened. You were barely able to walk but as soon as you sat on the ground and relaxed your body the effects of the drugs started to cease and you were soon enough ready for action. Your body felt weird but it was for the best.>Try to unlock the entire Cruiser.>Train with your new Bionics.>Continue exploring the Warehouse.>Write in.

>>42685776>Could we make another attempt later?Just listen to the dice and move on hahah
>>42685776Maybe, maybe not. Lately I have given you all many gifts for free. Bionics, Weapons, etc... Hell, in fact the MC has gotten pretty much all its gear for free so far.I don't want to turn him into a munchkin who hoards items and looks like a Swiss knife
>>42685840TO be fair this IS an explorator ship, and he got the shit kicked out of him earlier. Also that chaos/ork fight can't be helping our travel speed at all.
>>42685276>Continue Exploring: Delta WingHappy with your new upgrades you head into the train and sit while awaiting for it to head into the Delta Wing. It is where the highest ranked members lived and worked and surely the missing piece to unlock it entirely lies among its corridors.During the travel you decide to try your Cochlear implant. It magnifies the sounds so much that the shock of the sudden increase makes you jump and fall into the ground.After a while you manage to regulate it and learn how to filter the background noise. You reach your destination but don't leave your seat, you are more focused on learning how to use your new bionic and attune it perfectly.It isn't until you can only hear your heartbeat that you are happy with your effort and decide to stand up to leave the train.Calmly you walk into the Captain's room and see in the center of it a small holo-displayer that generated three holographic images that slowly spun on its axis. One was the own Explorator Cruiser on all its magnificence, the second one was the stern face of the now dead Captain, the third one was the Cog Mechanicus and the Captain's own Heraldry shield. There is a wardrobe in there, a desk with a personal cogitator, some chemistry sets and the kind of normal yet highly decorated furniture that can be found on a normal room.>Log into the computer and search for information.>Look at the chemistry sets.>Explore its wardrobe.>Explore the room.>Write in.

You know, I remember when a few months ago there was this thread, that proposed that there should be a Quest featuring a Techpriest, who goes heretek and saves the Imperium, or something.Then I was really impressed that I've seen it a few days later in the flesh.I didn't joined back then, but now I really wish I did, because it looks pretty good, and runs pretty frequently. But the archived sessions are so freaking huge, that I'm afraid if I read all of it, it will just stop, and I'll be left all alone with a shitton of charts, diaries, interpretations, and plans again.
>>42686452Read and join, Axsisel is going strong my freind!
>>42686452There's getting close to a year's worth of threads and Axsisel has been suggesting that we'll soon be coming to the final arc of the quest, so alas I'm afraid that you may have missed the boat on this one unless you can spare the time to catch up.If it's any consolation, we never really went heretek, just decided to oppose a few people in the name of efficiency.
>>42686037>Log into the computer and search for information.Most of the computer files have been corrupted, both because time degradation but possibly also because of the damage that the ship might have suffered or as a measure made by the own Captain. There is one file thought that its completely readable...it's a diary that explains the last days of the ship from his viewpoint. It went as it follows:>ENTRY 9821-ZZ+ I love her. I simply do. Those techpriests are on a quest for knowledge but when I have asked them about love they all shrugged or asked me if I instead wanted to know anything about procreation. ++ I am not part of the Mechanicus, not really. I am just a man who was part of the Navy and after becoming wounded on combat and filled with strange machines asked to captain an Explorator Cruiser. ++ Arandano is kind of like me in that aspect, she might be a techprietess but I know she also feels as a foreigner from time to time. ++ By the Emperor, I have guided ships that are bigger than some cities and fought behemoths that could obscure suns and is revealing my feelings to a girl what truly scares me. ++ Even if I am the Captain and the one who gives orders on this ship I am nothing but a pawn of the true masters. The Magii council can order my arrest and destitution if I do anything that they dislike... ++ I don't know what scares me most, if being rejected or enraging her father, the Arch-Magos and suffering his ire. +
>>42686638I wonder if there could be an actual heretek quest. I guess for that one we'll already be a heretek from the start and we get to chose during the 'character creation' how we cam to be one, which flavor, and what are our starting circumstances. Example: we'll have been picked up by a rogue AdMech Cabal, or lost in the Warp, or just traveling relatively. out on our own.
>>42686738--->ENTRY 10.002-ZZ+ It's been a week after her death. Both the Arch-Magos and I are incredibly touched by her loss but we both try to conceal it. He does because he isn't supposed to be a slave of feelings, I do because I was never supposed to feel anything for her on the first place. ++ Still, my despair is affecting my men. The latest raids have suffered from an increase of the 53% of casualties. I have told the Arch-Magos that we are just suffering a bad week. Even with his bionic eyes he gave me the most humane look that I have seen in years and softly nodded as if he thought that I couldn't be more correct. +>ENTRY 10.004-ZZ+ I cannot hold it anymore. I will tell the Arch-Magos about it. +>ENTRY 10.005-ZZ+ He...he said that he always knew and that he had wished for me to have married her. That I would have had his blessing. He told me that it might be too late for that not all hope is lost. ++ He has taken me to the High Ranked Medicae-Bay and showed me an strange vat in which a baby floated softly. It was a clone of her. How did he did it? I don't know, that's something that only their techno-sorcerers could answer. ++ Best of all is that he has told me that since he is way too old to take care of her he will give me permission to take care of her as if she were my daughter... I don't know how to feel. +
>>42686756>ENTRY 10.023-ZZ+ The Tau are attacking us! I knew that staying here for so long would bring us problems...still I remember how I didn't changed position because Arandano asked me to and how after her death I just became too apathetic too move away. ++ I hate myself, this is all my fault, but I won't let those xeno scum take what this Cruiser holds. I have ordered full evacuation and locked down several areas with the password: 4R4ND4N0 ++ May the Emperor protect my soul. +That was the last entry, after that there was nothing. In fact the computer turned off and ceased to work, as if it knew that its destiny had been fulfilled and was finally able to rest. Since the baby clone was surely still on a gestating process she surely wasn't evacuated, you aren't an expert but you are pretty sure that if she were still a fetus taking her off could mean her death.>Go back to the Ship's control room and unlock it using the password.>Go to the High Ranked Medicae Bay and see if she's still alive.>Continue exploring the ship.>Write in.
>>42686784>Go back to the Ship's control room and unlock it using the password.Then we'll check the Medicae Bay, just to check at least.
>>42686784>Go to the High Ranked Medicae Bay and see if she's still alive.
>>42686784>Go to the High Ranked Medicae Bay and see if she's still alive.Maybe if she is it'll be the push we need to get us out of our current depressive slump. Having to keep another individual alive will keep us fighting to get back to relative safety.
>>42686784>Go to the High Ranked Medicae Bay and see if she's still alive.Weirder shit has happened.
>>42686784>Go to the High Ranked Medicae Bay and see if she's still aliveI'm in a daring mood
>>42686452>You know, I remember when a few months ago there was this thread, that proposed that there should be a Quest featuring a Techpriest, who goes heretek and saves the Imperium, or something.Then I was really impressed that I've seen it a few days later in the flesh.Honestly this has taken me by surprise. I didn't knew anything about that thread.>But the archived sessions are so freaking huge, that I'm afraid if I read all of it, it will just stop, and I'll be left all alone with a shitton of charts, diaries, interpretations, and plans again.Sessions might look huge but if you discard all the player's actions and comments they end being a quick read. Be patient tho, my first threads are full of strange sentences and typos. >>42686487Thank you!>>42686638>Axsisel has been suggesting that we'll soon be coming to the final arc of the quest.Well, we had to return to our roots someday. We have become stronger and that was our original mission. We can't just go adventuring forever until this quest runs out of steam.After the Racing Arc there will be another small Arc and the Final Mega ARC that hopefully will be as epic as it looks in my imagination.>>42686747>I wonder if there could be an actual heretek quest. I guess its possible, in fact I tried so hard at first to make the MC an heretic but the players were just way too good hearted to do so. Still, I think that to do an Heretek Quest one should be pretty edgy and over the top.
>>42686907>but the players were just way too good hearted to do so.Chaos is just even less efficient than the Imperium.
>>42686784>Go to the High Ranked Medicae Bay and see if she's still aliveYou rush into the Medicae Bay, one part of your brain was hopeful of having another loyal person to talk with while the other constantly reminded you that the scanner of the ship detected a limited number of lifeforms and that from all of them the only remaining one was you.When you entered inside you were surprised to not found a baby, but a grown up female that could be considered a late teen or a young adult.She was very pale and with a blonde hair that floated on the stasis vat she was stored in. It seemed that she had been kept in there as a baby as a mean of security, maybe the Arch-Magos hoped that the Tau couldn't understand it and left her alone.There were several strange things about herself, stasis pods contain objects frozen in time, she was still supposed to be a baby, that posed the probability of her not being the clone of Arandano, another more mundane question was how unlike other persons of her age was missing body hair; the only place were she had follicles were in her cranium, the rest was perfectly smooth.Both questions were answered when you entered the terminal that was next to the Stasis tube. There was an alarming message blinking on it with the following message:++ System Failure in Pipe Four. Stasis effect at 96% ++You made some mental calculus and discovered that she was indeed Arandano. It was just that during those 500 years she had been slowly growing due to the effect of the imperfect stasis. She is alive but due to being halted in time and barely having a heartbeat the ship's bio-scanner was unable to locate her.
>>42687256---On that same terminal there was a program called MEMORY_DUMP.EXE After clicking it three options appeared.-1: Aran_Memory-2: Blank_Memory-3: Library_MemoryIt seemed that the Arch-Magos had stored the memories of her deceased daughter, possibly by taking her brain and storing them on an optical medium. Maybe he wished to implant those memories on her slowly to make her act as closer to the original one as possible. Still the option of giving her a blank memory or picking skills and a set of preprogrammed memories was avaliable.>Give her back her old memories. This will give her a great knowedge in Tau technology and a innate curiosity but will also make her question about what happened with the ship and where his father is now.>Give her a blank memory, let her learn the things by herself.>Choose the memories from a library. This will roughly let you make her personality and skills as you wish but it isn't surely perfect due to how grown up is she already. This option could backfire.>Leave her alone, let her rest in her dreamless sleep.>Kill her painfully. If she's found by Orks or even worse, the chaos warband, she will suffer a living hell.>Write in.

My bad. I forgot to add:>Her body is shaven because since she hasn't grown naturally, only the hair that she was as a baby as grown. Which is the hair of her head.
>>42687278>Give her a blank memory, let her learn the things by herself.Give em to her some other day.
>>42687391With her old memory's she would probably be on par with us.
>>42687421Silly anon, we can't be HER daughteru!
>>42686907Maybe can catch up before the finale starts.I'm sure there was a thread. Maybe not an entire thread, only a post, but I'm sure that it was there.
>>42687278>Give her back her old memories. This will give her a great knowedge in Tau technology and a innate curiosity but will also make her question about what happened with the ship and where his father is now.Honestly, giving her a blank memory would be risking having an adult sized baby and if you tried to select memories you would risk giving her corrupted memories from the old and abandoned databanks. You simply select the first option and let the program dump all her memories, since the data process on stasis doesn't works correctly she is taken out and introduced into the normal currents of time, is then when the process starts.She twitches from time to time but continues unconscious for an hour or so. Meanwhile you went into her room and readied one of her old robes for her. The robe has now lost most of its color but it is still in a pretty good shape. When the process ends the cables that are lodged with her neck automatically disconnect with a steamy hiss and the doors open, letting her crawl into the exterior during her confused state. It is then when you make your advance and cover her with the robes. Looking at another human feels weird, yet pleasant. You didn't knew if she was truly beauty or not because you never focused a lot on physical attractiveness but still she looked to you like the most beautiful woman on the galaxy. She was weak and confused, it was normal, she had never used her muscles and since all her memories had been dumped at the same time she was surely having flashbacks of her past right now."W-what?" Was the only thing she managed to mutter after a while. At least it seemed that the language information had been correctly downloaded.>Tell her the complete truth.>Take her to some bed of the Medicae Area and keep her in there for some days, tell her the truth slowly.>Introduce yourself and just show her the diaries and how the ship is now. Let her understand it on her own.>Write in.
Hmm. Maybe we should use the canon to off the daemons before she accidentally gets a look.>>42687715>Introduce yourself.>Take her to some bed of the Medicae Area and keep her in there for some days, tell her the truth slowly.
