META STUFF!Welcome back to the world of Damnatum Lutum!Damnatum Lutum is a 40K greentext series that aims to have fun (Rule of Fun/Cool > canon) and build the world, one shitpost at a time. Previous threads can be found on suptg (they're not essential reading but help a lot with understanding what's going on) at http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=damnatum+lutumIf you want to jump in, don't hesitate. There's some roles I think we need below, but they're not exhaustive and if you have a faction you think would be good to represent or join an existing one, go for it.>Tau (Priority) - The main enemy at current. Though their invasion of the region fell short and they have been pushed out of several towns, they are still putting up stubborn resistance in several places in the Liverius Basin region including its capital, Liveria.>Orks - Like the Tau, their invasion under Freeboota Orko uv Dakkamark was defeated, but packs of feral Orks still roam the region with the potential to reform into a threat.>Chaos - Chaos Undivided cultists were the enemy that started it all, and they have since been purged from the city. But they still lurk away from prying eyes, in the tunnels and caves.>Iron Warriors - The IW came along with the cultists, and went to ground when the uprising was defeated. Since then they have been seldom seen, presumably working on nefarious schemes.>Imperial Navy - The IN played a crucial role in thwarting the Tau invasion, but has since faded into the background.>More general Imperial factions - We have Cadians, Armageddon tankers and a couple of obscure IG regiments, Imperial Fists and Sisters (Hospitaller/Martyred Lady). What other IG regiments, Astartes chapters, Sisterhood members and more will wash up here?
Since last thread, I've been very hard at work on creating supplementary materials. I've compiled an information dossier on the city and region and finished the Groxbridge city map. It was 150-200h of work over three weeks and gave me a repetitive strain injury on my right hand, but I am of /tg/, and /tg/ gets shit done, no matter what. As for the dossier, I'm so sorry to spring such a massive .docx on you but any and all attempts to convert it to a PDF utterly FUBARed the formatting and even in its uploaded state it's still a bit dodgy and some of the images are broken or moved (if you download and open it, it'll be fine). The dossier contains links to the city map, a metro map (inspired by the London Underground of course, I even went and found the typeface for it) and information on the planetary system.Oh, and the usual regional map update too.

>>68704758Admech quarter is centred on the old auto and steel works, which has had some of it's larger warehouses upgraded and refitted into bunker-storage for the Armageddon tank regiments and what remains of the Mechanicus heavy armour. There's also a small techpriest contingent working on the chemical plant, but that's outside the "firebreak" perimeter around the main facilities.Sigma is at the Alling Airport at the moment, will bring him out once I've had dinner and checked where we were at last thread.The maps are superb, anon, hopefully we get enough of the regulars back to get going soon. Really did not think we warranted that much effort but regardless of anything I'm saving all of them for whatever future campaigns I want to play, the detail is excellent.

Lore Time!Van Kijeck island ! This island of roughly ten square kilometers is in fact mostly artificielThis is to support the Stonehenge cannon who was placed here during the dark age of technologyThe island is the home of the van Chijek family their mansion overlooking the military complex.Said complex was used to fire the cannon and linked to the continent by deep tunnels and a naval baseNow only few members of the family still live on the mansion and only gangers on the run reside at the complexAs for the exact location it wasn't really clear where the island was so more information on that would be great

>>68753364Hmm. Perhaps off the coast of North Point to complement the refs?In the probably 20-25k years since it was built, the island could have suffered badly from coastal erosion and many of the battery's guns might have fallen into the sea over the millennia. I imagine the island would be mostly rockfill, sand and dirt, and once the main seawalls and defenses were worn away it would erode quite fast, with over 17,000 years of neglect providing plenty of opportunity for storms to chip away at the island. Now this stump is all that's left of the once-mighty complex, with the manor house, access building and a handful of guns still clinging on, though each one of the ancient behemoths still packs an immensely powerful punch in its own right.
>>68754596That sounds interesting, but if there's 15 guns on Stonehenge alone that can fire 5 shots per cannon, that's about 75 mass driver accelerated shots coming out of one platform every, I dunno, 5 minutes? If each one of the platforms were as large (which they probably would be) that'd be 225 shots per 5 minutes (or something like that). If there was actually MORE of them originally, the required power would peak at unreasonable levels. Oh and it'd also be super fucking OP but this is also DAoT weapons we're talking about here so that should be a given.The actually stonehenge battery itself though would probably be mostly unscathed since the whole thing is built out of Ferrocrete and the guns probably out of heat resistant material and sturdy metals to keep them from exploding due to overuse. All of that would probably make the Island look pretty cool. A ten square kilometre wide weapons platform with gigantic guns running across its edges, complete with a command bunker, standing in the middle of the ocean on a crumbling island. I dunno about you, but I'd totally fight someone to death for that.
>>68755238That would need a nuclear power plant just to fire if the guns are on electrical power like a laser or plasma if that's the case I think that the power would be transfered by cables via the tunnels under that goes to the continentI also imagine the island to be protected by some fort in sea like the fort maunsell in the North SeaDamn this is personnaly my favorite place on the planet now
>>68755238Sounds like my next mapping project. There could be a Battle for Stonehenge as enemy factions attempt to stop the Imperium gaining control over and restoring the weapons (this sounds like it would basically need a whole thread, and be a return to the intense CQC the series started with), though it'll probably take a long time to actually get them functioning. Nearly 20k years of rust from being exposed to the sea elements takes a while to scrape off.Gif related is what the planet would look like, only replace the ducks with cogboys.
>>68755716I do believe that an on-site nuclear reactor was mentioned in the first post about Stonehenge so the power problem is at least slightly explained there.>>68756423Considering how close North Point is to Stonehenge, it'd be kind of a one-sided battle. The Admech flooding the planet though? Yeah that's a definite possibility, and one I only realised now that I may have overlooked when creating the first post. I guess Stonehenge being so worn down that it'd be more efficient to just grab the schematics and try to make a single new turret that'd stop that from happening (at least immediately). As for the whole other thread idea, shieeeeeet, we've already been going for like 3 months, that's probably not gonna be feasible.Then again, what happens to Stonehenge is up to you guys too, so let’s see what we've all collectively got.
>>68756880The North Point base isn't operational yet, so they wouldn't get roflstomped by proximity.We've still got all the regulars here and lots of unfinished business, so as long as they keep coming we'll keep going. We can't do the grand many-character battles of the early threads, but we can damn well have a go at it.I'd like to at least get through a full year of Damnatum Lutum time, which would be another 2-3 threads, and if we get that far we might even be able to wrap it up on a full circle - I'd rather give it an orderly ending that let it fizzle out. Just imagine bringing the final thread to a close with Chaos invading again into the mud with Ultramarines arriving and everyone exclaiming "HERE WE GO AGAIN". Cut to credits. Add link to first thread.
>>68757473yup sounds goodI've honestly been wanting to have these poor templar bastards break off and form their own separate chapter. So I'm hoping to have things come full circle.I eagerly await the next thread comrades. Until next time.
>>68757746Wait a minute, we're not finished yet. I mean we hold off on the battle for Stonehenge until next thread.
guy who posts as "former pig shit farmer, now Archbishop of The Church Of The Emperor's Holy Gifts" herecan yall run me up to speed, i have not even noticed this here thread
>>68757473Oh fuck, I think I misunderstood what you meant. I meant more, "lets not create a whole other series of threads" sort of thing, we can totally keep going until these threads are concluded. I think I get what you mean now though, fighting over Stonehenge would probably require its own threads worth of stuff yeah, but like Groxbridge we can always just keep it as part of the constantly evolving battlefield. I may also just be a bit dumb, but that's up to interpretation.
>>68758037It's now winter and everybody is freezing their butts off in a vicious snowstorm. There was the beginnings of an assault on Tau-held Stemton, but everything got diverted to a massive clusterfuck in Starrick Pass. Meanwhile, the Tau hired a Deldar mercenary force and Stemton is the scene of a three-way battle between Tau&Co. and demons of Khorne and Tzeench. There's an uprising in Groxbridge by the not-Vietcong fomented by the Iron Warriors. Anything I miss?

Charge!>I pull my sword back out and lead the charge at the few remaining Tau in the area >My refractor field absorbs the two shots that come my way, but unfortunately we lose a few men and women for abandoning cover for no reason>I guess we killed them a bit faster though than if we stayed in cover, at least that is what my after action report is going to say>My vox operator catches up to me and informs me that fighting has basically died down in this area, but our orders are to slowly advance towards the center of the pass and sweep up any stragglers>Apparently the Tau and Dark Eldar are mostly defeated, and finishing off the Nurglite warband has been left mostly to the Black Templars, Sisters of Battle, and a few specialized Cadian units trained to fight in contaminated areasListen up everyone!

Not like you lot have any better ideas>Plan B, activate!
>Be Imperial Fists Brother-Sergeant Sammos>Things have been pretty quiet up on Hill 924>Quiet, if you disregard the unceasing cannonade of batteries 3-5>If I were a gambling marine, I might just wager that even the Imperial forces in Starrick Pass are growing accustomed to it>Finally got word from Groxbridge>>68791829>Lieutenant Paulicus requesting help in dealing with an insurgent force>The call is quit eurgent>After a few moments of calculating and adjusting the crews of guns 1-6 begin firing>Nevermind a targeting volley>Just firing for effect and walking the guns onto target>Sadly the guard here didn't bring and incendiary ordinance>Hopefully high-explosive and air-burst shells will suffice
>>68787450>Be Inquisitor Leonpines Edric of the Ordo Xenos>Got in Stemton as fast as the Corvus could>The Templars and the Guard are destroying the city>How many Baneblades there are here?>And where the Ethereal could be ?>Certainly in the biggest building of the town>Which is the town hall>I'm sure the security in this sector is on a sky high level>Better be seeking and blowing up all possible sniper nest>I've been dropped with my kill Team on the plaza next to the hall when a baneblade with a Templar on top of it comes chrashing through a building>And start firing with the eleven guns on the town hall>My prisoner!!

>Be General Ronald Conesbury, Task Force C>Trying my best not to despair at the bloody mess I have been left in charge of.>Most of the regiments in the area have been sent to the Stemton and Starrick fronts, leaving me with only a few companies worth of garrison units to use.>There are of course plenty of PDF and militia rabble in the area, plus the cogboy, Imperial Fist, law enforcers, and Craftworld Eldar forces, but I have no jurisdiction over them.>In the north quadrant things are fairly under control for now, with the Cadia 304th Calvary detachment routing the gangs gathering in Dunlan Park, the Happy Enders and my own Praetorians guarding their billets in Green Oak, Mechanicus forces defending key infrastructure in Xora, and roaming mobs of religious fanatics crucifying everything with a pulse in Bealing, particularly near the Cathedral. To the northeast, only small gangs of insurgents have been spotted in Alabaster, though there have also been disturbing reports of hedonistic parties being held in some mansions to celebrate the imminent downfall of Imperial control.>The east district is relatively quiet. Krechetovka loyalist ruffian gangs have fended off any attempts by insurgents to enter the district and some of them are now advancing south against hostiles in Whiscale, setting several neighbourhoods in fire with those perculiar alcohol based firebombs they are so bloody fond of.>The south quadrant is unfortunately the source of much fighting, with the insurgents targeting any industrial infrastructure they see as important to the Imperium. The Imperial Fists, Steel Legionnaries, and Skitarii are fighting viciously there, but the waves of insurgents seem endless. The chemical works got hit particularly hard and are now basically on fire. The only good news is unconfirmed reports that the Black Templars are moving into the area.
>>68797773>The west quadrant is also the site of heavy fighting, Chrysotile and Stankonia are all but overrun, though arbites, PDF, and religious militia are blocking their attempts to use these districts as a base from which to cross over to Wapper Island. The student ghettos of Leyline have proven surprisingly resilient despite the emergence of a Slaaneshi worshiping sexually deviant cult who dress up like animals. Neighborhood militias from Brumley have also been moderately successful in keeping their districts clear of chaos scum. Brannet is of course well protected by arbites and the Craftworld Eldar army that has been allowed to settle in the area.>Wapper Island of course is the heart of Imperial control, though some PDF units and civilians believed to be loyal to the recently-declared-traitor Governor have come under attack by Kriegers and religious militias. The Governor himself hasn't been seen for hours.

the bump limit is imminent (nine posts from here), so I suggest all you anons wrap up your plotlines now lest we end up with loose ends like last time. Also bump anons, you are very appreciated but do try and conserve posts from here on out (the thread archive timer is 6h, so don't panic if it's been a couple of hours).In case the thread hits the limit and gets archived overnight before I can get back, I'll get this out of the way now - I'll start the next thread at midday EST on the 1st Nov (which I think should be the penultimate one for reasons already said). I'm liking the idea of fighting over the island gun battery since it's been a while since we've had a nice, pitched battle over a spot and as a break from the usual area and adversaries.If the rest of you are amenable to the idea, I'll get drawing a map of said island for next thread. Acepedia doesn't give dimensions so I'll have to try and work them out or use some guesswork.
>>68830235>>68830235Sounds goodShould we try to make the thread Halloween/spooky themed?Possible ideas below:- a warp anomaly causes the spirits of the dead to wander the region, occasionally animating dead bodies or inanimate objects with hostile intent- an unusual alignment in the planet's solar system causes a several day solar eclipse- the start of spring causes huge fog banks to envelope the region- the area around the island gun battery is tainted with the powers of the warp, and the tunnels beneath the island enter an alternate dimension where anything is possibleAlso any requests for whoever archives the thread on suptg?

>>68830235Tank + 3rd inquisitor poster here, I probably won't be able to make a final post before the thread auto-archives but I do have a couple suggestions to make. A pitched battle over Stonehenge might be pretty cool, a kind of final stand for the Tau (we can assume that the inquisitor pulled out because there were too many screaming daemons around)Stonehenge herself might make up the majority of the manmade island, the command bunker needed for it split up into two parts on the surface, one forming a half crescent on the western side another on the eastern. They'd meet underground in the middle of the circle where the absolutely gigantic power plant made to fuel the guns is located, probably under several layers of ferrocrete, ceramite and whatever else the DAoT humans could scrounge up. The guns themselves might be of more robust construction than Ace Combat Stonehenge since they've got five "barrels" to fire out of. Probably a thicker base piece and some form of circular platform underneath them to allow them to rotate.That's some stuff for the most based individual in the thread to work with, but what about the other stuff?I have a couple other suggestions:>StemtonAttack either failed or succeeded so hard that it's even more of a pile of rubble than it was before the imperials arrived, the Mayor of St. Jan probably gets happy that he no longer has to fight with the Tau all the time>Starrick PassProbably blocked off by all the snow and frozen corpses>GregorianaCaptured and secure>GroxbridgeInsurgents probably got mostly beaten back into the countryside after attacking the steelworks, mainly because of astartes backup arriving, warcrimes being committed and all the screaming militiamen. Structural damage was probably sustained though, I assume the Iron Warriors would bring with them some sort of anti-vehicle/building weaponry. Up to Saratposter honestly.These are just suggestions though, feel free to pick and choose whatever you like.
>>68830785For the theme: Since there are literal Zombies in 40k cannon and Armrot is still running around supplexing everything in his path, if the metal gear rising revengance poster (I'm pretty sure it's one guy with an ambitious dream to shitpost to the extreme doing most of it) wants to come back he could have Armrot spook the entire planet. Hell, the spirits of the dead don't even need to show up, Armrot could probably just infect a bunch of xenos to use as his plague bearing warriors.And then of course there's the 'nids which are spooky in their own right, but they would probably make a really good final boss so I suggest we keep them out of the equation until the last thread.

Archbishop here.when is the next thread gonna be?maybe first weekend in November?
>>68829759>>68832417>Be Captain Priscilla Von Hansburg, 4th Baroness of Bluven, 1st Happy Ending Regiment>The caves dead-end at some sort of massive elaborate door>Hard to tell if they are of human, eldar, necron, or other origin>They look solidly built though, no doubt the General Staff is going to order me to spend the next few weeks trying to clear a path into the next chamber>Wonder how no one has ever discovered these doors before>I mean sure, the locals are almost fanatical in their refusal to enter underground spaces, but someone must have had the courage to at least travel this far down the tunnels, after all, the caves are only a short distance away from a major roadway>With a heavy sigh I order my men to withdraw back to the camp so I can get in touch with the General Staff to see what they want to do about the situation>Hopefully the Commissar still has some of that amasec left(to archbishop poster - stannimposter said earlier he would start the next thread on November 1st)
>>68831262Pilot poster and inquisitor poster hereI will try to have Edric fight the Tau commander Shas'O Fi'rio to end her plot lineAs for Antonius the ex-pilot he will go where his superior will tell him to go so he will go on the island via the tunnelsAnd for the theme I think the zombies are a good idea but we should couple them with a fog for more fun. So like in the lasts threads a time skip of one or two month (or few weeks and justify the weather change by some warp anomaly ?)
bump limit has been hit, feel free to post as much as you want now, you only got a few hours left.>>68832931I am not sure if that big a time skip is needed this time around, we already know that the seasons on this world don't line up with our ownAlso not sure what weather we are going to go with, we can stay with winter for another thread, or we can go to a slushy, muddy spring, with the aforementioned thick fog for spookiness Also any requests for the description that will be added to the archives?
Graves here, can’t wait for the first. Gonna bee a good one
>>68832591>Be me>Commissar Dell Lugermorph >Priscilla comes back and tells me about some weird door they found>Think as a crack open another bottle of amasec Big door...big door...no, this can’t be a tomb world...right?>Shake my head and poor Priscilla another glass>Tell her we should be good and to wait further orders>This is a old one >’42 château backstab >Good year I’m told(See you guys in two weeks, and possibly any new necron posters)
>>68830785Since we're on the 10th page I guess it couldn't hurt. >Name The battle of Damnatum Lutum, part 5>DescriptionIn the thick of winter, the imperials try and capture a Tau occupied city. While part of their forces go over the mountains, another stays behind and defends a pass. Then Dark Eldar and Tau arrive to attack the imperials in that pass. Then a giant DAoT anti-planetoid system gets introduced, things get a bit chaotic after that.
Might be easiest to just wrap up the clusterfuck in groxbridge next time if armoured backup and whatever the backup plan is are both to arrive shortly
Hmm. RE zombies, we've still got all that nurglite shit hanging around from thread 3.....I can work out something for the weather.
>>68835160Yeah, start with the big clusterfuck at the steelworks and then we can get set up for a big pitched battle at the island
>>68834832Suptg desc char limit is only 140 characters, and they've been only a couple of short sentences so far.
>>68835296Each thread has had a couple of months worth of timeskip and the next one is no different, it'll probably have been worked out in the interimOh, by the way I apologise for the lack of my trademark imagefagging this thread, I just didn't see that much opportunity for it this time round.
