Aimy leaned back in her chair and kicked her black-and-red carapace-armored feet up on the large table in the middle of the Laundry-Brig. Across from her, Nubby paused from helping Twitch unload their pallet full of crates to open one of them and pull out a double-handful of bottles. The markswoman snagged the one that was slid her way, and sipped at it as she eyed the familiar clutter of boxes, barricades, and the occasional loop of razorwire littering the room. Admittedly all the piles of laundry and the large machines lining the walls were a bit out of place. Not to mention the haphazard network of pipes, wires, and chutes linking everything to some sort of giant rats nest in the far corner of the room where Tink was swearing at something or other. Over all it was very homey, though she did wonder where the sandbags had come from."Nice digs, expected something a bit more, you know, prison-y."Tink poked his head from behind the kludged-together control-altar he was abusing. "Yeah, guess the Arbites are too incompetent to do their own laundry or something and wanted some expert help. Nice hair by the way, looks like she nearly got it all one color this time, and only a moderate amount of facial scarring too!"Tink flinched as Aimy drew her bottle back for a throw, but relaxed as she decided there were better uses for the first beer she'd even SEEN in over a month."Yeah, well, Doc's girl does good work doesn't she?" The markswoman turned her head towards the curtain that had been hung around one of the bunks at the far end of the room, and raised her voice slightly, "Even if 'My dearest Val-entine' gets tad on the bitchy side without her boy-toy around to play doctor."There was a strangled sound of protest from the little makeshift operating theatre, followed by crashing clatter and a series of curses. Nubby and Tink both snickered; Twitch went to inspect the disturbance for signs of hostile activity.
CAUGHT IT LIVE
Woot. Catching it live for the first time.
My body is ready
GET ON WITH IT
>>60621322Fuck yeah. Welcome back, Shoggs, always good to see ya.
Shieeeet.First /v/ plays Xcom thread in almost a year happens at the same time as Shoggy continues his epic story.Truly this night is blessed!
a live agp thread,and i can witness itfuckin finally
For anyone who's just joining: this is part 2 of the story on how the Guardsmen became locked inside a Laundry Room on a Arbite ship after one of their Inquisitorial missions went, if not to hell, then at the very least went to an obnoxious inquisitor and an unstopable authority figure arresting them and carting them back to Inquisition HQ for parking fines. LOTS of parking fines.Part 1 IS archived, and I recomend reading it to get ready for this part.
>>60621322>Heads up folks, this is one isn't a huge deal, just (hopefully) tying up the lore-dump part of this little interlude.>Things are going to be both short (10 posts max), and slow (only 5 are what I consider "ready", the new schedule has ravaged my writing time, to say the least). I'm personally pretty dedicated to getting through this tonight so I can finally return to the actual gameplay stuff, but I don't really recommend this as a primary activity tonight.>Also, heres a nice little piece of Art an anon in the drawthreads did.
>>60621322Sigmar bless this thread
>>60621502I was hoping "lore-dump" meant gaming stats and background for the campaign, but hopefully we'll get that at the end or from Failer.
>>60621322Why is Doc so cute?
>>60621502>picOh my gosh, that's BRILLIANT!
>>60621502>An entire regiment of guardsmen were harmed in the making of this bookBeautiful.
>>60621469Good to be back, hoping to stick around this time.>>60621529Nah, just fluff, I'll have to see if I can get the crunch from him for the final thread though, or maybe the epilogue. He's got to have the sheets *somewhere*
>>60621529Honestly, the only thing I really want posted is the Only War maps mentioned in the begining. It gets mentioned a lot that Failer showed everyone the maps, and I think it'd be nice to have those battle maps scanned onto a computer and shown to us, probably uploaded to 14dchan for prosperity.It'd be a nice reminder of the early battles the Generian 99th fought and got massacred in, so all the poor sods who died in the bloodbath can at least be remembered for something - because lets face it it's highly unlikly anyone kept a list of guardsmen who died.Hell, I'll be lucky if we got names for the living spare Guardsmen from the regiment that arn't in the current party. Maybe Shoggy could consider a Directors Cut AGP to tell their story after this is over.
>>60621605So Shoggy, how did Aimy get acess to SoB armor?did docs gf just happen to have a spare copy around or did she actually joined an order
>>60621690Im guessing valerie gave it to her so she could save doc
>>60621502>>60621531He ordered all?
>>60621690>>60621706Oak can pull strings for this sort of thing, it can't be too hard because in the Stealth Mission we had someone else in SoB armour who, upon close examination, wasn't actually a sister but wore the armour anyway.
>>60621322Aimy smirked and sipped her drink before continuing. "Seriously though, shoulda heard what she said to Oak when he turned up out of nowhere wanting to haul me off. If the Adept wasn't there to talk her down she'd have probably given him a round of involuntary treatment. The old smoothtalker brought her around though," she paused and tapped her cartoonishly oversized "breast plate", "even convinced her to loan me her combat gear for this whole Sister disguise thing.""Ah..." Nubby made a face, "You sure it's jus' a disguise, cause I got somefin like tweny crates of bolter ammo round here somewhere… not sure why I even lets 'em pay wif dat stuff anymore.""What was the disguise even for anyway?" asked Tink, "Did Oak need someone to inspect a Soritatas Convent for signs of 'deviant practices' and figured you'd know where to look?"Aimy flipped a single finger in Tink's direction and then shrugged, "No idea, he's a tight lipped fucker aint he? And I swear that Interrogator of his hasn't spent more than ten minutes off that dataslate since I met them. All I know is they showed up in the medbay with the Adept and said you guys needed my help, and that I'd have to disguise myself as," the markswoman adopted a slightly creaky lecturing tone "Literally anything that isn't a guardswoman, if you can manage that."Aimy paused to sip her drink, "Didn't tell me a single fucking thing about what was actually going on, just that you guys had done better than expected on your mission, and had 'infiltrated' an Arbite vessel on its way to Inquisitorial Headquarters. I asked he was sure he hadn't meant 'arrested', and Oak said the agent he'd sent to contact you hadn't been able to confirm anything, which is why we were all going."
>>60621764"contact" them? Hmmm.
>>60621764>done better>somehow managed to attract a Damenhost, for the fourth fucking time>FUBARing the plan of their fellow asshat, i mean Inquisitor, mentally fucking up (albeit indirectly) his staff>awakenening the Robodred 3000Holy shit Oak, what did you expect, the Exterminatus of the whole system?
>>60621764>Nubby already wants to sell the armourNUBBY>Oak sent an agent to contact SargeOh. He's actually really worried. I can tell because someone possibly important was sent to find Sarge and get him to do something, even though he has to know what Twitch's security measures are like by now. This could be bad.
>>60621834That IS worrying. On the other hand, maybe he knew Bane Johns was around.
>>60621834>Holy shit Oak, what did you expect, the Exterminatus of the whole system?This IS the All Guardsmen Party. They probalby could have blown up the planet if they really wanted to, and we don't know just what degree of Warp Fuckery those chaos artifacts are capable of so it's VERY possible the planet could have spawned an actual Greater Demon instead of just a Daemonhost.
>>60621834Considering that they stopped the collection of horrifying Chaos artifacts by two rogue ex-Interrogators who between them have caused the death of a fair-sized world's worth of people, then yes, finishing them off without obliterating the planet entirely is probably better than expected.
>>60621764Wait, so was getting the party caught not part of theplan, just a "happy coincidence"? Did Asshat just genuinely want to fuck them up, or was he acting for Oak's sake but making it up on the fly?I'm getting more and more confused by the moment.>>60621834Since both we and the party know so little about the mission, it is pretty hard to judge just how well it went.Maybe Bane and Angelina were really fucking things up big, and we just didn't know. Though that raises the question of why was Asshat so focused on gathering the artifacts while ignoring them.Also, well, the resources they consumed for that were pretty minimal. AGP is nothing if not cheap in upkeep. They honestly can sometimes ace missions even with barely any budget or resources, though that usually comes at a cost in unintended consequences (such as during the whole Daemonthrope fiasco).
>>60621834>Forgetting Oak sent 12 teams of specialists to their deaths to gauge the level of shit Bane Johns was capable of of doingDude has the manpower to throw things at problems until they eventually turn a negative to a positive...and the patience to indulge the AGP in their anticsI would put nothing past him
>>60621932>the expected casualties on a sucessful AGP mission is the same as a failed Imperial Fists siege assaultthese men are truly the living embodiment of the Imperial Guard and should be declared saints in the name of our most glorious lord and God, The Emperor
>>60621987>cheap in upkeepI'd imagine that if Twitch got his way, the money used to buy explosives would resemble the amount of guardsmen dead in a Tyranid invasion.but besides that, they're farely cheap, after all, they don't ask for fancy shit like power swords, and the Occurence Border can sort of sustain itself with the farms and all. The downside is that whatever you want will come to you as chunchy soup
>>60621994Is the AGP success to expected casualties ratio the same as a normal failed Imperial Fists seige assualt, or the same as the one time Rogal Dorn decided to attack Perturabo's Demonic Fortress of Unspeakable Torment?I feel it's an important distinction to make considering Twitch can rig up the base with so many explosives, the only winning move is to not go anywhere near their base
>>60621764Twitch abruptly poked his head out from the operating theatre, "Agent? What Agent? How was he supposed to contact us, what was his call sign?""How the hell should I know?" Aimy shrugged again, " I gathered it was some guy you knew, one of you old Interrogators I think?"Twitch paused, leaned back behind the curtain to ask Doc something, and then started swearing. Nubby and Tink both stared in confusion for a few seconds before the shorter trooper abruptly snapped his fingers 'Ohhhhhh, I fought I recognized dat guy from somewhere! Shoulda said 'e was 'ere from Oak. Burstin in all unannounced, shoutin bout 'ow we 'ad to 'ide 'im fore the Arbites got 'ere didn' quite convey the message "Aimy raised an eyebrow "So what happened to him?""See dat blast mark over dere?" Nubby gestured towards a stained section of deckplate only a few steps from the door. "Twitch DID tell 'im to stop. Least we got the rest of em disarmed 'fore the Arbites showed up to grab 'im. "Tink chimed in, "And Doc said the head medicae got his leg back on before they hauled him off to the brig."
>>60622118depends on how many melta bombs nubby has managed to adquire
Oh fuck yes
>>60622139whooops. Wonder which Interrogator that was... the guy from the training episode maybe? If it was the one from their very first mission, his diplomacy clearly hasn't improved much.
>>60622139Did you actually play that through earlier?
I was to see the enthusiastic officer guy again. Although he is an inquisitor now
>>60622139>one of your old Interrogators showed upI bet it's the one who said something stupid to the captain, since there arn't many old bossess left alive right now.>See dat blast mark over dere?Those are words you don't really want to hear when you ask about what happened to your friendlies>hauled him off to the brigYep it's the first interrigator all right. also, it's hilarious how the AGP get a laundry room and this guy gets the actuall prison cell
>>60622213Nah it was inter-session back-fill. A lot of collaborative BSing about what we're doing during transit and only a few arbitrary-DC rolls for stuff like "do you blow up the laundry room" and some acquisition checks. We were amazed but suspicious when he let us do the whole escape thing, but it made sense when Oak showed up.
>>60622325*Snrk* Someday I really must try to play a game in which "do you blow up the laundry room" is a possible roll.
>>60622325>roll to blow up the laundry roomHonestly, I bet Twitch's player got told to roll for the best things. I mean, first he has to roll sanity checks to know about the ork commando raids, and then have a willpower test to avoid blowing up the entire ship if the sanity roll goes bad.
>>60622139There was a lull in the conversation, in which a faint metallic clicking could he be heard from behind the curtain. Aimy shook her head and took another sip, "So, speaking of Doc, and whatever half-assed medical procedure he's conducting back there-" her casual tone became a bit forced "Would anyone care to explain why the fuck Sarge is riding around in a wheelchair in nothing but a hospital gown, high as a kite and minus one hand?"Nubby flinched and looked at Tink, who was suddenly completely engrossed in his master laundry-control-unit. The ugly little trooper sighed, picked his nose thoughtfully."You, uh, 'member Bane Johns?""No?" Aimy paused, "Wait, you mean Twitch's Vampire Ork guy?" There was a triumphant shout from the far side of curtain. "You mean he was real? And wasn't he hauled off to some sort of prison, just like That Bitch was?""Yeah, umm, about dat. So no shit, there we were…"
>>60622437This can only go well.
>>60622437>Aimy has to sit through the story as told by NubbyYeah she's gonna need those drinks
>>60622437The fact that nubby’s story starts that way makes me think that all of the AGP’s tales are told by him
>>60622509I think they are told by him anon.
>>60622509The epilogue is just an old drunk Nubby in a bar telling the whole thing so people buy him more drinks
>>60622509It could always just be a Generian thing. We don't know much about how their home planet opperates, so it's possible EVERYONE from there uses "so no shit, there we were" or some variation thereof.
>>60622538It's the grimdark future version of "What had happened was..."
>>60622538It's an "old soldier" thing. Cadians and Catachans would use it too. Shoggy's said it's a river-rafter/climber thing.
>>60622556>>60622577I accept both these answers, simply because then it can become the standard storytelling technique of all guardsmen everywhere. It's so standard issue, they were probably drilled on how to use it properly
>>60622627>they were probably drilled on how to use it properly>misuse of proper regimental storytelling will get you BLAMMED
>>60622437Inquisitor Quercus, or Oak as his numerous underlings insisted on calling him, took a second to collect this thoughts before keying open the warning-covered laundry room door. The meeting with the Judge-Captain had gone quite well, the man and his First Officer had proved to be unexpectedly aware of the storm clouds gather on the horizon, and Oak had always held with the old Inquisitorial adage: "A Little Truth Goes a Long Way". He made a note to do something for extra for their careers, and maybe see if they had any promising new recruits coming up through the ranks. Assuming he survived the storm himself, of course.Oak's trip down to the evidence lockers to review Inquisitor Sciscitat's in-depth report had been a less enjoyable experience. He couldn't deny that the mission had been successful, beyond all reasonable expectations really, given the situation. The man's initiative was commendable, and his plan for the next stage was good as well, if not quite as brilliant as his astropathic message had suggested… But all that aside, how mind-bogglingly close EVERYTHING had come to total failure, and for such stupid reasons, shook him to his core. It was beyond Oak's understanding how someone with such an amazing analytical mind could be so petty, insufferable, and incapable of seeing the results of their own actions. He'd left his Interrogator to sift the rest of Sciscitat's drivel for the pertinent details; right now he needed to go have a chat with some guardsmen before they did anything else to destabilize the balance of the Imperium.
>>60622832I cannot think of anything more terrifying than a self-aware Inquisitor.Oak is spooky, but I guess he wouldn't have lasted this long against his odds if he had his head up his ass.
>>60622895About time we saw a useful Inquisitor who was on the good guy's side.>>60622832>the balance of the ImperiumEeeeh, not a fan of the AGP being that big a deal. Seems like high stakes for a bunch of mudfeet. Hope it turns out to be a little overblown or something.
>>60622955Should've been sector, I let the purple prose get away with me there.
>>60622955Their actions have resulted in several worlds being rid of life by Necrons, have been involved in a near-schism by the Mechanicus, and are now involved in a centuries old conspiracy involving chaos infiltrating the bloody Inquisition. Balance of the empire doesn't seem that much a stretch.
>>60622955Well, the astropaths are blaming them for the head-exploding wave which weakened an entire sector of Imperium space. They also told EVERYONE about this, so yeah, the AGP are a big deal now mostly because a bunch of Astropaths cried really hard about how Sarge is to blame for everything
>>60623005You seriously misunderstand the size of the Imperium. That's all sector stuff, at most.>>60622989Ah, makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the clarification there Shoggs.
>>60622832"-but turns out nobody told that crazy fucking cogboy about the whole "door" thing during warp turbulence, so you remember those squigs he was keeping to see if they could be turned back into genestealers? Well, the good news is Hydroponics Bay 3 no longer has a mutant krootoid problem… Oh, and Jim wanted me to let you know that some sort of smelly shadow monsters nicked all that stuff you had stashed under deck seven and disappeared.""THOSE UNGRATEFUL BASTARDS!""So over all, pretty normal until Oak showed up and had this big secret meeting with the Adepts and the mad magos-"Inquisitor Quercus cleared his throat. Aimy flinched and scattered the better part of a dozen bottles as she tried, and failed, to stop herself from tilting over backwards. The two guardsmen sitting on either side of her scrambled to shove their own collections of bottles under the table. The exhausted medic slumped a little farther up didn't bother, neither did the trooper who'd watched Oak enter, preferring to remain completely focused on the Inquisitor's movements while fingering something held just under the table. Oak carefully moved his hands a little farther from his weapons, and directed his attention to the last guardsman, the one sitting at the end of the table and still wearing a hospital gown. Interrogator Sargent rose slightly-unsteadily to his feet and began to salute, only to pause as he remembered his one medically-approved drink in his hand and switched his left. There was a metallic thunk as the shiny new augetic hand rebounded off his forehead with the force of a small hammer. He swayed for a second, attempting to maintain eye-contact with Oak, and them abruptly sat back down. From her position on the floor, Aimy fumbled through the bottled around her before settling on an unopened one and raising it in the air above her. "Hi boss! They got beer! Want one?"Oak surveyed the room for a few seconds longer, and then sighed. "Yes. Yes I really think I do."
>>60623308>Oak joining the boys for a beerHah! Knew he was a good dude. He's like their only boss to join them around the table for a drink (maybe Rupert? None of the others though).
>>60623308Wow, I feel sorry for Oak.
>>60623331Don't think it's "beer with the boys" type deal.I think it's a "gotta deal with the boys without pulling my hair out" type drink.
>>60623308AugMetic.It would appear there's a significant time lapse between this post and the previous one; reasonable given how long it would take for the characters to fill each other in!
>>60623331>>60623343Yeah, at this point the alcohol's not a drink, it's an anesthetic. Who knew Oak had the same kind of medical training Doc had?
>>60623308>Sarge is back in actionhooray
>>60623372Everyone starts somewhere.I can imagine a little Sapling piddling around in a lab dissecting people and learning how to put them back together.Or, given how practical he is, being given a crash-course on meatball surgery in a trench with nothing but a bootstrap, a knife, and a bottle of Amasec.
>>60623308>there are now squigs on the loose around the Occurance BorderTwitch will be happy, he at least has something ork-like to blow up nowDid the Ork Weirdboy try to manifest Ork Commandos during warp transit?
>>60623399>SaplingAs unpleasant as the rest of the image is, that is somehow the most ADORABLE nickname.
>>60623373I don't know that I would call what has transpired since the last entry "action" by any stretch of the term.
>>60623464Can Sarge yell at people? If yes, then he's in action. If no, then he's at rest.Important NCO fact.
>>60623482Honestly they could put him in a stasis pod and he'd probably still give the technicians that maintain it a good dressing-down even while it's still active. That seems like a really shaky mental metric to measure this by.
>>60623630Well, the point is Sarge is lucid enough to salute a superior officer when he sees one instead of being unconcious in a wheelchair, which is a nice plus. Also, he can now punch people with an augmetic hand.
>>60623759What do you think Sarge's augmentic hand is like? Is it an actually decent one purchased with Inquisitorial resources that has neuroresponsive artifical tendons and fully articulated fingers, or is it just a really shitty clamp that the Enginseer got out of a crate marked "For Penal Legionnaires"?Is it even a real augmentic hand or just something that Tink and Jim kludged together in their downtime?
The better question is. What did Doc allow twitch and Tink to add in as extras?
>>60623815>What do you think Sarge's augmentic hand is like?Oak probably brought it. So it'd high end.
>>60623836Girl Genius-type marvels of SCIENCE and death rays images just flashed through my head...
>>60623836Multi-tool, toothbrush, detaches and can hover, and some feature that makes it glow an eerie green and Oak should pay no mind to that one.
>>60623815It's probably a converted Powerfist. The kind Comissars use to punch heretics to death
>>60623836They might have taken a note out of Bane John's book and integrated a lighter into his thumb. We've never actually seen Sarge smoke but they thought it would be cool. It isn't even a good lighter or properly integrated, he just has a disposable lighter at the end of the ball joint instead of a thumb. He can't even light it with his fingers
>>60623865>>60623856Don't tempt them.
>>60623865So they let Twitch modify it, Got it.
I am not happy with this next bit. I've been poking at it for a the last week, and just can't get it to come out as good as it was portrayed to us. Sorry, might circle back and dick with it later, but its not worth holding up storytime indefinitely for.
>>60623969No worries, man.
>>60623892Christ on a cracker.I don't know whether to be impressed he's stuck with it or worried he'd clung to it.Godspeed, I want a cyberarm and autistic retards like him are going to get it for me eventually.>>60623969Feel free, I'm just listening to some TTS videos of the older chapters.
>>60623308>"I'm going to tell you a story.">"A long time ago there was an Interrogator, who served an Inquisitor in the Ordos Hereticus. For several years they pursued a heretical cult whose influence was so subtle and mysterious, that even their Inquisitorial comrades questioned its existence.">"In the end they finally tracked the cult to an Imperial Schola Progenium. They purged the Schola, but before their deaths the heretics managed to summon a powerful daemon and bind it in the body of the Schola's high Abbot, who killed all but a handful of the Inquisitor's team before he was destroyed. Following this bitter victory, the Inquisitor decided to retire to a administrative role within his Ordos and the Interrogator was promoted to full Inquisitor, but at his master's insistence, he took up service in a separate branch of the Inquisition.">"Several years later the junior Inquisitor encountered two rumors, one of a new theory for the training of Inquisitorial agents, and the other of a new Inquisitorial power bloc which welcomed more radical members into its ranks. Something about these rumors struck him as familiar, so despite both these things being outside the purview of a junior Ordos Xenos Inquisitor, he followed them to their source, which turned out to be his old master. He confronted his master, but not alone, and not peacefully.">"Five Inquisitors died that day, including the master, who fought with a completely unexpected strength and ferocity. The junior Inquisitor later believed he was a daemonhost, and claimed he recognized from the cult's lair. The senior Ordos Hereticus Inquisitor who led the investigation disagreed. Decades later, a proposal for the foundation of an Inquisitorial school was put forth by the very same woman. The no-longer-very-junior Inquisitor found this to be suspicious and investigated, with prejudice. The results were similar. "
>>60623995Oh gosh. It's the SAME DEMON, isn't it!?
>>60623995I'll agree with ya that it's a bit rough, and it's hard to convey tonal stuff your GM pulled in person via text.Plus you're typing from memory.All-in-all, not bad.Oo, Oak is a badass.
>>60623995Oh shit. Sounds like the demon from Fallen.
>>60624016...aaaaand now I'm worrying that the cycle is going to repeat with Oak as the fallen master...
>>60624065Oak is not a stupid man, pattern recognition comes with the territory.If he thought this was the case he'd probably do something like found the school on his own terms and raise and train some practical-minded guardsman with ridiculous luck to take his place in the future.
>>60624065yeah, but he will have Sarge and the boys (and girl) to prevent that very thing
Wow, surprised to catch one that I think is live!
>>60624095Actually, I'm pretty sure Oak did that. Remember when the Guardsmen were sent to be teachers, and ended up shooting up Necrons?
>>60624111Welcome to AGP Live, Anon.Sit back, throw on some Netflix, and check that Auto box!
>>60624095Then when the daemon tries to posses the guardsmen Twitch blows it upIt's foolproof
What's the body count like right now?We've had a partial exterminatus, maybe a dozen or more necron cleansings, a smoldering bunker city, a smoldering jungle village, a mildly blown up hive, and a giant Warp Rift that may or may not go away.Am I missing anything?
>>60624337Most of their trainees, some Inquisitorial operatives they ambushed without realizing they were friendlies, at least a couple of techpriests. Wasn't it Scisitat who had the defective psykers?
>>60624383I think so, I think it's also where they got Fumbles.They killed a lot of cogboys, although a good amount of them were daemonically possessed in the first place.
>>60624395Nope, they got Fumbles on the first Bane mission. Still a staggering amount of collateral damage, though.
>>60624395I’m also fairly certain that being around the party was what drove the cogboys mad enough to fall to Chaos.
>>60624416No, what happened was that, instead of just working with the demolition expert to disarm some bombs, they decided to be retarded and almost destroyed the ship and got everyone stuck in the warp.
>>60621322My First Live AGP, immortalize me Shoggy!
>>60624446And that is why you should never report explosives to your superiors until after you've disarmed them
>>60621322PRAISE THE EMPRAH! HE LIVES!
>>60624446And whose fault was it that those explosives were there?
>>60624540Nubby. It was agreed that all blame for the incident would fall on Nubby.EMPEROR DAMN IT, NUBBY.
>>60624540Nubby's. But partly for that reason, he's untrusted by the rest of the team. It's his fault, not theirs, and it's in his personal character that the problem lay, not because he was an AGP member.
>>60623995>"Six times, six damn times I've killed that thing, and every time it comes back in the body of one of my comrades. I've tried every banishment known to the Inquisition, at least all those the Ordos Malleus will share with me, and it just keeps coming back, even the time we just burned the entire planet from orbit. Eventually it got just as tired of dying as I was of it coming back though, it decided to just wait me out, laying low and pulling at strings from somewhere inside Inquisitorial headquarters, still trying to get that heretical school of its founded. So I did the only thing I could think of, I stole the damn thing's idea out from under it.">"And now here I am, glorified kindergarten teacher to a never ending stream of psychopaths, incompetents, and power seekers whose own Inquisitors couldn't be bothered to properly mentor them. Not where I saw myself when I was a starry eyed young adept, but at least it gives me some influence and I use it as best I can to foil that damn thing's plans.">"For the least century and a half we've been in this stalemate, dancing around and keeping each other cut down to size. The damn thing has been gaining on me though, slowly picking off my supporters and alienating me from the rest of the Inquisition, but I'm not done yet, and this time I have a way to end things once and for all. It must think so too, otherwise it wouldn't have launched its attack so prematurely. It and its Conspiracy may have branded me a Rogue and neutralized most of my teams and allies, but it exposed itself in the process, and where it really, truly mattered, it completely botched things.">"Which brings me to you."
>>60624562It was very clearly the fault of the guy Nubby knew that he bought it from. You know, not-Nubby. Nobby.It was definitely Nobby's fault.
Forgot that this was supposed to be tonight, panicked, and was astounded to catch it live. Praise the Emperor.
>>60624593And whose fault was it for buying the damn thing?
>>60624578Spanner in the works, that's what the AGP were born to be.
>>60624578This is where the panic starts.
>>60624578>A nigh ageless entity from the warp that has managed to kill countless inquisitors and infiltrated into the very institution they protect vs a bunch or paranoid, irreverent, foulmouthed, and murderous mud feetYeah, not even Tzeetch himself could plan for that
>>60624578Understanding that the Demon may have been long since banished and what we are seeing is shear inertia. The inquisitor that originally beat it did Oaks plan, which happened to look like that Inquisitor was corrupted, and so he was killed by an inquisitor that used those same methods, etc. ad naseum."Original" Demon was probably a Tzeentch-type. All subsequent demons are imaginary.Just as planned.
>>60624666That doesn't explain all the chaos
>>60624578[Totally not panicking]
>>60624731"Just as planned."
>>60624731Founding the school involves a grab-bag of all the chaos-prospect interrogators the inquisitor can get its hands on. They fucktards take it from there at the behest of various ruinous powers.
>>60624666You're not fooling me, Satan.
Hm, out of coffee.Gotta live with Coke to keep me up.Caffeine is caffeine and beggars can't be choosers, I suppose.
>>60624578By the way Shogs, while I've got you live: thanks man. You have single-handedly gotten me into 40k. Been working my way through Gaunt's Ghosts and Eisenhorn thanks to the quality and hilarity of these stories. Legit man, thanks.
sorry shogs going to bed work at 5 AM but will return to see the wonder you have written for all.
>>60624790>>60624819Don't you wait on me, I'm going to poke at these last 2 or 3 posts until I either get them satisfactory or am too tired to care. This super cereal lore dump stuff has been the bane of my existence for like two months now, and I'm determined to get it out tonight if only to let myself get back to actual gameplay.
>>60624666The Inquisition has means of discerning human psyker bullshit from an actual demon coming down and possessing someone. Oak says he killed a demon six times, he killed a demon six times. Given that it takes proper, personalized banishment rituals to keep demons out of real space for centuries/millennia and Oak has probably had to just shoot the fucker...Yeah it's a particularly persistent demon.
>>60624896Ten bucks says it's name is either Blue or Giovanni.
>>60624906Nah, the demon itself is obviously a legendary pokemon.
>>60624906For the record the whole Oak thing was our joke, not the DMs, he just picked it up and made it canon when we kept calling him that instead of whatever his original name was. It was never really part of The Plot™
>>60624889I'm a masochist, Shoggy.And I have nothing to do tomorrow.Besides, don't want to make you feel lonely.
Shogs,,I got laid twice today after a months-long dry spell and this story is still the high point of my day. Keep up the amazing work bro.
Keep posting, o great Shoggy!I’m actually following the thread on my phone as I watch my students do their seat work.
>>60624578>"With your help Inquisitor Scicitat secured a collection of heretical artifacts which had been stolen, re-stolen, and then re-re-stolen. Those artifacts, along with Sciscitat's official report and every heretic on that benighted world, were put on an official Inquisitorial convoy guarded by every single suspected traitor, closet radical, and power-hungry idiot both the Conspiracy and my remaining allies at Sector Headquarters could find. Putting all the bad eggs in one basket, as they say. I beleive this vessel passed through what was left of them just over a week ago.">"The boxes which had held those artifacts on the other hand, are sitting in this ship's hold, being used to transport your personal effects and other assorted mundane evidence to the Sector's Inquisitorial headquarters. Or they would be, if you weren't currently using them to store a mixture of high explosives and alcoholic beverages, which you seemingly intended to take with you as you deserted off to Emperor knows where. I am, for perhaps the first time in Inquisitorial history, going to assume that you weren't doing this out of some heretical desire to undermine the fabric of the Imperium, and just "didn't need to know" that the entire reason you are on this ship is to smuggle those boxes into Inquisitorial Headquarters, where I intend to use them to banish this daemon once and for all."
>>60625159doesn't say much about your partneror rather it does...
>>60625193>just "didn't need to know"This has probably been the biggest reason that the AGP has gotten fucked over time and time again, nobody tells them jack shit
>>60625193Wait. The BOXES are what he's going to use? The artifacts in them are gone and... destroyed?Sciscitat's not gonna like that...
>>60625193Inquisitor Asshat's got some 'splainin to do...
>>60625229Does nobody find this explanation super sketchy?Like. I would not at all believe this if his opponent wasn't That Bitch.
>>60625229inb4 the entire point of this whole exercise was to collect a big enough, bad enough BBODNT to imprison the daemon in.
>>60625229Didn't Sciscitat become very... evasive... when That Bitch showed up? Or am I remembering wrong/just stupid?
>>60625193I hope that the boxes are super-Warp-dampeners of some sort, because otherwise I don't buy this explanation either...>I am, for perhaps the first time in Inquisitorial history, going to assume that you weren't doing this out of some heretical desire to undermine the fabric of the ImperiumThat's just funny, though.
You know you're particularly unpleasant when you drive Oak to drink...
Not sure I fully understood what was being said.Someone jacked the artifacts?Artifacts guarded by people who wanted the artifacts?Oak is surprised by this how?
Posting before I head out to work, I love you Shogg and still can't believe we're coming close to the end of this crazy ride.See you next time.
>>60625229>>60625242>>60625248Just to clarify, Sciscitat was in on the whole "It's Actually The Boxes" thing the whole time, unlike literally everyone else involved. It's why he had us just blow up one artifact as well as why we were able to get that bait-artifact. He was also in on the "Lose Artifact Convoy In The Warp" plan too, which struck us as super assholish given he intentionally sent at least one of his minions on it.>>60625351>Oak has super-special McGuffins, needs to hide them, but is super paranoid>Decides to have them made into boxes, then puts eldritch artifacts inside boxes to justify why he has them locked in a secret vault>Everyone but him and trusted minions think the artifacts are whats important and go nuts trying to get it, never realizing what the real important part is>Just as planned, except the part where we accidentally almost steal them because nobody told us they were important either
>>60625388Oh, shit.Okay.Yeah makes sense now.Thanks lad.
>get home from work>catch AGP liveI can die happy.
>>60621322>caught live AGP threadthis is going to be a good week
>>60625388ohh i see
>>60625388Ah, that does make sense.>>Just as planned, except the part where we accidentally almost steal them because nobody told us they were important eitherAnd wooow would that have been bad.
>>60625388Ah... that makes sense. Sciscitat is still a petty, raging asshat though.
>>60625388It's too bad that that one techpriest in Asshat's retinue got offed by the 'surprise ambush' back on Haarlock's Wager, or he too could've been selected to accompany the Corruption Convoy of Definitely Not Blowuppable.
So how does oak feel about the party? Does he think they’re actually useful to his plans or are they just some faceless idiots that went through his pre school but just refused to die so he said fuck it, they’re involved too
Finally, caught one live!I guess work can wait.
>>60625565Going by the posts it seems more the former than the later. Oak is on a crusade here, he wants that damn daemon gone with a capital G. You wouldn't trust that to the AGP if they were just some slightly lucky fucks who got through pre-school.
This made my morning.
>>60625193Sarge blinked at the Inquisitor for a second, and then shot a look at Nubby, who seemed caught between incredulity and defensiveness. Doc put a hand over his mouth before one could win out. Oak leaned across the table towards Sarge. "Now that you DO know though, what I need you to do is put those boxes back exactly where they were, complete with their contents assuming you haven't hocked them for booze money or something similarly ridiculous."Nubby made a sputtering sound from behind Doc's hand; Oak ignored it, "Then, I need you to promise to stay put and allow yourselves to be transported to Inquisitorial Headquarters for your trial."Tink broke his uncharacteristically long silence, "Are you nuts? They'll shoot us for heresy!"Oak rolled his eyes at him, "No, they won't." He held three fingers up in Tink's direction and ticked one down, "First of all, despite the all impressive, and quite frankly ridiculous, things you've managed to accomplish in your short Inquisitorial career, the Conspiracy does not consider you an Important. Presumably because of the two agents who actually knew you long enough to get past your rather unique first impression, one was executed by my own agent before he could send a report, and the other fervently argued that it was all dumb luck right up until the point you incinerated her."
>>60625904Is this the same trial mentioned back when they were dealing with the nids
>>60625904> one was executed by my own agent before he could send a report, and the other fervently argued that it was all dumb luck right up until the point you incinerated her.The second one is Nubby's gf, but who was the first one?
>>60625904I feel like Oak is a disappointed dad
>>60625954Xenos Adept killed by Dip Adept during REDACTED
>>60625954My money would be on the xenology adept that the willy Diplomacy Adept shot at the base they fought the Daemon-nid on
>>60625904Okay now any explanation for the psychic tyranid that killes hundreds of astropaths?
>>60625954The xenologist adept who was killed by the diplomacy adept at the end of the daemonthrope arc
>>60625954The xenology adept that was shot in the back by the diplomacy adept in the xeno lab on account of being a traitor, I would assume.
>>60625990That would just be the AGP's shitty luck which as stated >>60624658 no sane or insane mind can readily account for
>>60625193So did sciscitat send his own interrogator to be blown up as well? Man, as if he wasn't enough of an asshole.
>>60625990The Magos wanted a Zoanthrope to play with, and Oak generally gives the Magos whatever he wants.Nobody ever expected we'd decided to keep it in a daemonically tainted closet for half the trip, and an astropathic sanctum for the other half.
>>60626074in your guys defense, Oak deciding out of all his ships to have the Zoanthrope be transported on the Occurrence Border and have Your team be the ones to acquire it was some Interrogator level shortsightednessI mean you guys have proven you get results...but never the results people expect
>>60625904The Inquisitor lowered another finger, "Secondly, the charge is not Heresy, or Impersonating an Inquisitor or Astropath-icide for that matter. It's Assisting a Rogue Inquisitor, and unless you are considered particularly dangerous or important, the punishment for that is imprisonment in stasis until said Inquisitor's trial. After which you're released into their custody pending official review of your actions" he paused for a second "or if they're guilty, summarily executed via plasma incineration."Tink made a strangled sound, "How is that any bet-"Oak, cut him off, "And finally, I have arranged with my remaining agents at Inquisitorial Headquarters to have your sentence commuted. You will instead be assigned to considerably lower-security holding facility, which just so happens to be adjacent to the mundane evidence storage warehouse, putting you in perfect position to infiltrate it and move the Boxes from the storage unit assigned to your case, to the one assigned to mine."
>>60626152It's a heist! What could POSSIBLY go wrong?
>>60626152Oak, this is steadily looking like less and less of an improvement...
>>60626167Everything. Literally everything.
>>60626167The better question is what couldn't go wrong. I bet that within half a day in jail Nubby becomes the top guy for... procuring whatever you need in there.
>>60626152As the Inquisitor leaned back into his chair and tented his fingers in front of him, Tink, Nubby, and slightly-slurring Aimy all burst into objections. Sarge ignored them and looked to Doc, who scratched his head for a second then shrugged. Across the table, Twitch raised the detonator in his hand ever so slightly into view and waggled it back and forth, Sarge shook his head. After nearly a minute of thought he brought both his fists down on the table for silence, paused briefly to examine the dent his left hand had left in it, and then looked the Inquisitor in the eye."So, let me get this straight," growled the noncom. "You want us to allow ourselves to be arrested by the Inquisition, and then break out of an Inquisitorial prison, INTO a top secret storage facility, where we will then tamper with the evidence for the highest profile case in the Sector?"Oak nodded."And if we somehow succeed in this suicide mission, what then?" continued Sarge"Well, either I banish a daemon that's been corrupting the Inquisition from within for over two centuries and use my heroic status to quash all charges against you or," he shrugged, "you still wind up with a lighter sentence than you would've gotten anyway.""And you're absolutely certain we'll get that lighter sentence?"The Inquisitor looked around the table, his eyes briefly stopping on Aimy, and then nodded. "I've already made sure of it.Sarge sighed and rubbed his face with his good hand. "Well, we've had worse missions…">*Interlude End*
>>60626178Oak clearly knows what they're good for though.
>>60626199Hoo boy. Next mission is gonna be a doozy.
>>60626199You and your GM remain ever based, Shoggy.I really enjoyed Oak's backstory, it's good to learn a little about him given how significant he's been to the plot even when we didn't know the deeper details.And it's nice to have a superior who's willing to sit down and have a beer with the team.
>>60626199So let me get this straight, twitch straight up asked sarge if he should have blown up Oak right there? Damn.
>>60626219The Black Templars apprive of this action.
>>60626199And the interlude ends with dubs.Blessed Shoggy
>>60626199I'm tired, it's late, and all this talky stuff was a massive pain in the ass, but there you go: it's done. Time for the one last clusterfuck.I'm going to do some family stuff, and probably a short side thing to unwind at some point, but I'm aiming to get this final chapter (the first half at least, there's an obvious breakpoint in it) out late this Summer.Thanks for sticking this out with me you crazy bastards, I'm crashing for now, but if this thread is up in the morning I shall return.
>>60626225Still would've laughed if even oak needed to use the sock puppets to help explain his backstory
>>60626241Night night shoggy
>>60626241Three years, Shoggy. Three years. But goddamn it's been a fun ride.
>>60626241You are one magnificent bastard, Shoggy.Never change!
>>60626241Sleep tight shoggy
>>60626225Failer makes good NPCs, most of which go completely unnoticed. It was nice to focus on one, even if it was a pain to write up (and even if it's not Meter Maid Dredd).>>60626226It was an honest-to-god option for us. Our DM has always made it clear we could at least *try* to kill anyone, whether or not it was a good idea has always been left up to us.>>60626251>>60626253>>60626254>>60626255Night!
>>60626241sleep tight Shoggy!
>>60626241Sleep well, good fellow!
>>60626274I don't know what I'm gonna do when this all wraps up. Thanks much Shoggy!
>>60622509Shoggy revealed that he was the player of Nubby.
I just saw that this hasn’t been archived yet. Somebody do so, please! I don’t know how to.
>>60626398Done and donehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/60621322/
Failer, if you read this: you make amazing NPCs and your stories are also magnificent!I want to be like you, as a GM!
>>60626199>The Inquisitor looked around the table, his eyes briefly stopping on Aimy, and then nodded. "I've already made sure of it.Calling it now. Aimy's momma general is one of Oak's allies and she's gonna make an appearance.
>>60626517my guess is that, if he fails, he will have Aimy's mom take in the guardsmen, veterans of countless battles against chaos and xenos and have them become part of a veteran regiment of the IG to kill the armies of the demon inquisitor at the head of the conspiracy.
Shoggy, I wanted to thank you for your stories. I was recently seriously burnt by chemical weapons during a deployment, and All Guardsman Party kept me entertained when I was on medical and inspired me to run a game for some guys from my unit.
>>60626274Shoggy my dude, I (most likely) won't be awake when you get up. So thanks for the stories and get someone to help you write. I need more.Maybe get Failer to help?
>>60626241I was just wondering Shoggy, have you ever considered publishing this story through any official cahnnels, like writing a book or a script for a TV show?Seriously, HBOs All guardmen party sounds like a thing id watch.
>>60627695The stories are good, but half the appeal is the writing style (kinda like Pratchett), and there are also tons of things which probably won't work quite as well in a non-game, especially tons of blatant references as major plot points. In particular, Nubby is really in danger of a potential copyright strike, I think.The whole thing also does assume you have some background in WH40K, if minimal by cultural osmosis on the board. So it would most likely be a niche product for the fans of the setting, since AGP honestly doesn't explain much of the fundamentals. So, the question is, would the Games Workshop okay the story with how much silly fun it is at times, since it's the most likely potential backer? I doubt it.Though not like I am completely sure about how the whole thing works, so maybe I am missing something.
honestly, the AGP are probably the best daemon-wranglers in the sector right now after everything the Zoanthrope put them through. They could always threaten the daemon with an eternity aboard the Occurance Border if it doesn't play nice and nothing else works.I mean, I'm pretty sure they could absolutly destroy Kairos FateWeaver simply be asking him simple questions such as "Are you stupid?" and deciding the head that says "yes" is the one telling the truth.It would inevitably end with asking if he was an ork, and then screaming about how they knew he was really an ork all along, before blowing the offending head off
>>60623308>some sort of smelly shadow monsters nicked all that stuff you had stashed under deck seven and disappearedThe bendies?
I command thee to live until shoggys return
>>60629620Am around, just didn't have time to say anything before I headed into work, so I'm stuck using my phone
>>60622832>The man's initiative was commendable, and his plan for the next stage was good as well, if not quite as brilliant as his astropathic message had suggested… But all that aside, how mind-bogglingly close EVERYTHING had come to total failure, and for such stupid reasons, shook him to his core. It was beyond Oak's understanding how someone with such an amazing analytical mind could be so petty, insufferable, and incapable of seeing the results of their own actions.I kinda wonder what exactly Oak is talking about here. I mean, miscommunication with AGP is a serious thing, I guess, but is he maybe talking about something else here?
>>60629825I'm pretty sure miscommunication is exactly what he's talking about here. His entire plan required the Guardsmen to play their part, and leaving them out of the loop (thus causing them to take their own initiative and nearly run off with the macguffins) because of a personal grudge nearly ruined everything.The fact that the guy who's whole shtick is large, complicated plans failed to see the consequences of constantly keeping the Guardsmen in the dark and making them think they were being sent to their deaths is mind-boggling, especially considering how he's been on the receiving end of exactly what they're capable of.
>>60629825He's critiquing Scisciats penchant for jerking subordinates around.>>60626504Will make sure he reads this>>60626911More than welcome man.>>60627695>>60627784Ya I'm sorta screwed on that front, GW owns the rights, so unless they decide it's worth polishing this up into something that could be legally published this story will remain a peiece of glorified internet fan fiction.
Really glad to have the chance to see an All Guardsman Party in action. The stories are hilarious amd entertaining Shoggy, cheers!
LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE!>>60630020Good to see you, Shoggy. Will have questions for you after I've read everything, if you're still here later today. Don't forget to visit you-know-where, we're still watching with interest.
>>60630020I'll be waiting for the final chapter of this story with baited breath, then die of oxygen depravation and return as a ghost to haunt these threads till i read the next story and am able to move on.
>>60626199 >"Well, we've had worse missions…"kinda sad that, that's the truth
>>60626241 >Final ChapterIs the AGP coming to an end?
Alright, having finished up, I have one major question for you, Shoggy: Will we get to see the Trial?
>>60631290Will there be references?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8Zuxsqp78M
Here I am, postin in a Shoggy thread of AGPJusta have this chance again fills the heart it does.Blessed be this thread
>>60631290I'm pretty sure shoggy mentioned the trial is one of the more fun parts of the epilogueI'm 100% certain that it's probably going to be great when the three judge inquisitors have to pick through the AGP's actions/mission and find out which part isn't complete bullshit. In fact, I'm pretty sure the AGP's amazing plan for smuggling in Oak's evidence is to just keep the arbite gear on and wheel it into the evidence warehouse, and then tell everyone this evidence is going to be used for an inquistorial trial and to NOT touch the box without the explicit approval of the judges unless they want to die horribly.
>>60632782>evidence planThat might not be a terrible idea, as long as they send the good actors and NOT Nubby.
>>60627695>>60627784>>60630020what about a fan comic?
>>60630977yes, next mission is the last
>>60633177Fun idea, but have you ever tried drawing a good comic? They're hugely labor-intensive. And Turn Signals on a Land Raider was just a simply-drawn, three-panel gag-a-week and still got discontinued because it was too expensive.
>>60633220>TSOALR>comparing the internet comic scene from ten years ago to now>AGP already has a premade plot from beginning to endthe only way for it to fail would be getting an artist that can't keep a schedule, also let me dream dammit
>>60624337There was that space station that got mildly ravaged by them because of a misunderstanding and the influence of the Daemonthrope killing astropaths. There was that section of the highway that was destroyed to kill that woman inquistor who was working with John Banes. Numerous vehicles have been destroyed by the party, not always their fault. A tauboo former inquisitor got his patience killed by the party. Purchase of the warp ravaged hellship by Nubby probably has contributed immensely to the bodycount. Every single person who has had dealings with Nubby has probably died a little bit on the inside. Twitch has been killing or maiming people with his defenses and traps for a while. Finally, there was that one Commissar Cadet they were training who was mysteriously shot after pissing of his fellow trainees because the AGP couldn't get them all to work as a team.
>finally get to catch AGP live>a day too lateoh well, still awesome
>>60634162And don't forget the possible body count caused by an outbreak of psychically infused warp fungus on that station you mentioned first.
>Caught second AGP threadfeeling good today
It may be fan fiction. But it’s some of the best damn fan fiction in 40k. Feels like a Cain novel but darker AND sillier!
>>60624337>>60634162>>60634775also the ship filled with deserters that was lost in the Warp during their fight for the Greater Good
>>60631290Not in full, but definitely little experts from it. I do vaguely regret teasing it so early though, didn't realize how long it would take me to actually get there.>>60630977Probably 2-3 more postings to cover the last chapter, then an Epilogue.>>60633177>>60633220>>60633427I gotta admit, my dream would be to sit down with an actual GW-sanctioned art team and codify these into a Transmetropiltan-esque comic series. Would be so cool. Oh well.
>>60637559>I gotta admit, my dream would be to sit down with an actual GW-sanctioned art team and codify these into a Transmetropiltan-esque comic series. Would be so cool. Oh well.dream on senpai, we all can
>>60621322I just want to let you know man, before this is archived and such, you are one of the reasons I'm into 40k and tabletop at all. Thanks man.
Oh damn, i actually catch one of these live, sorta... you are coming back, right Shoggy?
>>60639273I'm still around, just don't really have anything to say.
>>60639288Is it true that you play Nubby?
>>60639447Yep (and most of Fumbles). That's why Nubby tends to get more actual dialogue than anyone else, a lot easier for me to remember.
>>60639514speaking of dialogues, in the guardsmen archives, do you have plans on expanding previous entries?I know someone who does audioreads of them and does radio shows as a hobby
>>60639865Yeah, I'd definitely like to go back and fluff out the first three entries a bit
Did Oak free his agent he sent to meet the AGP but got arrested by the arbites and brigged?
>>60640109Hey Shogs, which stories from your archive are in most dire need of editing and/or don't have an editor assigned yet? I would gladly take some of them on. Also related, what feedback format would you prefer?
>>60640189I'd imagine he's stuck until Oak clears himself.Or possibly he's supposed to be included in the heist... which, if he's the first Interrogator they ever had, is going to be a complication they really don't need.
>>60630999Look deep inside your trips and you will find it to be true.But hey, I didn't do a screenshot of the time I asked shoggy what he played and he told me that it was Nubby so it's either you believe me or you don't.
>>60624337The bunch of Eldar who took a giant nuke to the fucking face
>>60637076That would probably be the thing with the highest bodycount and it's all thanks to Doc and his willingness in killing thousands.
>>60643549that's a thing I've noticed, when push comes to shove, Doc is the most pragmatically ruthless of the bunch, like that time during the Necron ship investigation, when he gave Cutter and all the other trainees berserker stim cocktails
>>60643602Yep. That's why he's probably my favorite character at the moment. Soft and romantic on the outside, with military-grade adamantium on the inside.
>>60643549>>60643602>>60643710Well, he IS a doctor, one trained on the battlefield to boot- he's probably really good at assaying situations, and... performing triage.
>>60621322I can't wait for the next installment of AGP!!
>>60640841Umm, drop me an email about that. There's actually a ton of editing that has actually been done and is just waiting on my sign-off. Problem is every time I start, I realize I'm behind on the current chapter and should go work on that instead. I am bad at time management.>>60640189>>60642226He sent his minion off to retrieve him before he left the ship. We expected him to show up again in Inquisitorial prison, just because that appears to be his shtick, but I believe that's the last we saw of our very first Interrogator. >>60643549>>60643602>>60643952That's a side effect of him being the highest INT character in the party, so IC-wise a lot of our ideas get filtered through him, and then it started getting funny... His player did complain that he wasn't TRYING to be an evil mastermind, it just sort of happened by accident.
>>60645790>That's a side effect of him being the highest INT character in the party, so IC-wise a lot of our ideas get filtered through him, and then it started getting funny... His player did complain that he wasn't TRYING to be an evil mastermind, it just sort of happened by accident.Oh yeah, you did mention that people make plans and that the GM gives people with higher int more time so, if a plan comes up during the time of one character, it would be a plan coming from that character. Or did it work a different way?
>>60645858Well, not much actual planning happens in combat, but yeah if everyone else is out of time some stuff can be snuck in that way as his action. Combat is mostly just combat though.It's more a matter of figuring out ways for crazy OOC ideas to make sense IC. Especially when anything suggested by certain characters is automatically considered suspect.
>>60645790>it just sort of happened by accident.That's the sort of thing an evil mastermind would say!
>>60645790>Umm, drop me an email about that. There's actually a ton of editing that has actually been done and is just waiting on my sign-off.
