>>86403168I think we made a mistake, looking at the pdf, we were supposed to roll 1d3 for which specialization list to use, then 1d100 for the entry on that list, not 3d100 for all of them, and getting chaos undivided cultists as our specialization should have set them as our enemy automatically.
Rolled 2 (1d3)>>86403216Oh shit you’re right. Guess I’ll roll a d3 and we can decide what they keep>>86403186I’ll use this for the friends roll then>Rogue Trader
>>86403387So they get keep 2 specializations. >Combat Swamp>Enemy: Undivided Cultists>Unit: Light cavalryI’m pro-keeping the cultists and have their enemies be CSM and them.
>>86403588I guess keep swamp combat then
>>86396858So summary of this regiment>This regiment has served the Imperium for 2 millenia>They hail from an Industrial world. >The world is small compared to other planets, has a swamp terrain and it's impoverished >It has 20 million inhabitants >The regiment only recruits noble males >The regiment isn't particular well trained and only a few hundred remain >The core unit of this regiment are hunter-killers>The regiment specializes in fighting in swamp environments and against Chaos Cultists>The regiment is fanatical to the Emperor. No remorse. No retreat. No fear. >The regiment's seeks vengeance against an enemy>Their morale is above average>Other forces of the Imperium have no strong opinion of this regiment >They are famous in the sub-sector, well known in the sector and obscure in the segmentum>This regiment serves along side with beast men that share traits of aligators>The regiment's relic is an Ancient Chain Sword>Their sworn enemies are a chaos cult and chaos space marines>Their allied with a Rogue Trader Any name ideas for these guys?
>>86404223>Paludis Swamp Shooters >Smoke Gators>Paludian Hunter Killers
>>86404223What about "Cottonmouths". Cottonmouths are swamp dwelling snakes that hold their ground and try to intimidate their enemies but aren't as aggressive as people think. This could serve as a characterization of the regiment. You could even have the gatormen have white mouths to keep that synergy.Since they deal with chaos, you could also reference them kind of acting as exterminators. So how about something like "Sucker Stompers".
>>86404364I like the name cottonmouths for them
alright so I got a pretty insane idea here but what if they used the abhumans as steeds? so we got swamp nobles riding around on top of alligator men (allimen?).
>>86405518I'm not sure about steeds since that make the Inquisition deem them as mutants. I think if they had some gator like predator on their planet could be cool. They might even use that as a mount like Krieg.
>>86404223I'm thinking these guys used to have some other purpose but recently (think within last 100 years) had a chaos cult go unchecked and have been fighting a losing battle to control the major populations center since. They're working with abhumans that used to wander the wilds on the periphery of the more industrialized areas in pairs (one ogrynator for the muscle and navigation of the swamp and a dude with the equipment and knowledge to strike high value targets where they can. They're absolutely loyal to the Emperor, but the ceaseless march of chaos through the palatial estates and cities they once governed has left them in despair. News of their struggle has spread far (mainly due to the efforts of one incredibly wealthy patron) but coming close to losing your home to chaos and working with mutants has soured their reputation amongst some factions in the imperium. Their leader, Archer Lejeune just looked up cajun general and picked a name, fights with one of the same chainswords given to his family, and by extension the Cottonmouths, 2000 years ago.so some regiment that used to be REALLY GOOD(?) at something else after two millennium of doing it are now reduced to frogmen after so many casualties and inability/unwillingness to recruit but the scooters are gators and their doing special operations (not that well but hey when your a few hundred guys in the swamp on a planet of 20,000,000 what can you do) while what's left of the PDF, volunteers, and any imperial forces who happen to be there do the heavy fighting against a chaos cult that's been going wild for the last however many years
>>86406899I dig it
>>86404364Seminolian Cottonmouths? I like these guys, sweet underdog vibe.>>86406899Yeah, this is basically what came to mind. New Rough Riders announced today as well. Got some cold ones lying around. Could make a guy just for the fuck of it but I guess no one will remember by then. But I like it
>>86405518I pictured something like a saurus but less lizard and more human. I think they'd operate both as the "Hunter">cultists get free reign of the cities unless some larger loyalist force steps in>HOWEVER>being nobility, the men have contacts in society to know what's moving where and when>meanwhile gatormen know the terrain having lived there for many generations>anytime cultists try to move anything valuable between or out of cities (VIPs, equipment, information) they get hitthe "Killer" would be them paired up (one gator, one man with however many pairs you need to complete the mission) in ambush. Big gators dragging cultists into the swamp while the men strike whatever they need to in the chaos. Then they sink into the swamp and GTFO. "Hunter-Killer" because they would be doing gorilla warfare across the planet if they had the numbers but they are limited to just striking high value targets when they can.>>86409633>Seminolian Cottonmouths?WINRARSo do we roll up the cult they're fighting now?
>>86409633I always find these threads fun. I find it cool that /tg/ can spitball some fun lore. Sometimes it’ll be remembered. Most times forgotten but I always enjoy reading through them
>>86410249I see. When you said mount, I assumed it’d be something closer to a lizard centaur but this sounds cool.I’m down to roll up their cult 1d20 for the cult’s background
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>86410294>>86410252>I find it cool that /tg/ can spitball some fun lorewhy I post in these threads, I just like to see where anons take and run with whatever the dice spits out
>>86410563>Cross-class: roll twice and combine the resultsSo 2d20
Rolled 5, 2 = 7 (2d20)>>86410605
>>86410686>Warrior Brotherhood: Military strength is prized by the Imperium like few other virtues. It is this strength, and the will to wield it, that is valued above almost all else in protecting the holdings of Mankind. Those entrusted with this task sometimes let their heady burden take control of them, and devote their lives to war as a craft, hobby, or even religion, rather than a duty. Such cults can arise within militant forces such as the Adeptus Arbites or planetary Enforcers as easily as the Imperial Guard or Navy.>Desperate Underclass: Although the Imperium’s ponderous bureaucracy is the only institution vast and powerful enough to keep humanity alive in these dark times, it does so at a terrible cost. Innumerable cults have risen from those ground between the gears of empire, seeking only to better their own admittedly miserable lot. While pitiable, their actions invariably threaten the lives of many millions more.So that's why they only use nobility for the regiment. 1d20 for the cult's ideas
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>86410872Huh, a roll thread where things just makes sense. Pretty rare
>>86410922> Forbidden Worship: The Emperor of Mankind is the only god acknowledged in the Imperial Creed. All others are seen as primitive deviancy at best, and Daemons or echoes of the Warp at worst. On some planets, proscribed rites still thrive, and ancient powers or xenos races are worshiped in the Emperor’s place.1d100 for cult’s leadership
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>86410956Meat for the Gator God
>>86410988> Central Figure: A single important individual holds leadership of the cult.1d100 for the leadship’s nature
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>86411048THE GODS SPEAK AND WE ANSWER!
>>86411048>>86411104I'm a dummy that was looking at the wrong table. It's a d20
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>86411122
>>86411152>Daemon: (same as above, but include 'Xenos' as a possible mundane guise) The cult is led by a daemonic entity, usually tied to one of the chaos gods.1d10 for the leadership style
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>86411243
>>86411270>Puppetmaster: The cult leader favors elaborate schemes of manipulation, sending chosen pawns to act in his name for inscrutable ends. Some are elevated to the upper ranks of the cult, while others are reviled for failure, but the true meaning of his actions is always reserved to the leader alone.Sounds like Tzeentch is behind this one. 1d6 to see how many armaments and defenses this cult has.
Rolled 4 (1d6)>>86411302
Rolled 2 (1d6)>>86411302Could be a local Snake Daemon (the one who sheds his skin) also. I'm all for minor Daemons
>>86411387>>86411388Going with the first roll so it looks like they have 4 things. So I need 4d20
Rolled 18, 16, 13, 20 = 67 (4d20)>>86411411
>>86411465>Extensive Bodily Modification: This cult makes use of extensive bodily modifications to bolster its forces. These modifications could be biological in nature such as controlled (as much as it could) chaos mutations or tampering with the holy human form or mechanical in nature similar to that of the Adeptus Mechanicus.>Instruments of the Daemon: The cult uses chaos summoning, daemon weapons, daemon engines and chaos artifacts to fight off those who threaten it.>Beasts: The cult trains, breeds and alters living creatures to suit their goals and defend themselves from opponents.>Otherwordly Allies: The cult has allies in unknown places and may not even know the true nature of their allies.So this cult seems like a powerhouse just with the daemons and otherworldly allies. I can see why Cottonmouths had to go the Hunter-Killer route to deal with them. 1d10 on how this cult displays their allegiance
>>86396925That needs the Regiment Sex table fixed. In lore all male Regiments are 80%+ of guard formations, with mixed Regiments being only about 1% of forces, because of the obvious problems that causes with discipline and morale.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>86411505
>>86411719>Special Material: Some of the garb or gear used by the cult incorporates materials rarely used by those outside the cult. Offworld fabrics, the bones of rare beasts, or even xenos trinkets could all be possible signs of cultist ties.Neat, I guess. 1d20 for the cult's allure
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>86410872>Warrior Brotherhood>Desperate UnderclassCommon soldiery getting swept up by chaos to get back at the nobility in command? Maybe that explains the regiment being decimated (turncoats+a purge) and why they aren't taking any more recruits (only the leadership that survived and have been proven loyal). I like it because it explains how a few hundred guys can be a player on a planet of millions since the Cottonmouths that survived were the command structure. So you get cultists with a bunch of MEAT to throw at problems and all this >>86411505 but they're lacking competent leaders in the field. Reminds me of reading about how the Republican navy in the Spanish Civil War had an atrocious record because the common sailors had thrown many officers overboard when they mutinied>>86411824
>>86411905>Knowledge: To live as a scholar in the Imperium of Man is to remain in frustrating ignorance. Mankind has forgotten and lost more knowledge than most xenos races have assembled by the death of their civilizations. The Adeptus Mechanicus worsens this crushing ignorance with their monopolies on technology and data, together with their stifling (often punishing) adherence to doctrine. Some groups appear to stand against the darkness, however, to either seek out the knowledge of the past or to seek new and abominable information. For a frustrated scholar, such groups would appear ready to slake his thirsts.So a cult of poor cajun warrior-scholars? Sounds kinda neat. 1d10 for the cult's rites
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>86411934It sounds like the underclassed citizens want to learn more than just what this Industrial world produces
>>86412070>Foul Communion: Simply being in the same place is not enough for some cults, who seek to become still closer to each other than mere proximity. This communion may take the form of debauched rites, shared hallucinations, or invasive psychic melding, depending on the cult’s focus.There is a lot of room for creativity for this one. The last roll is for their worship but generating the Cottonmouths these guys should be Chaos Undivided. So should we autochoose that or let the dice decide?
>>86412070Or just return to their old beliefs>>86412087I think so!

>>86396925I must say that I do now have an exceedingly high opinion of these sets of tables
>>86411580And the other 19%?
>>86414084>80% male>1% mixedPretty sure they're the female regiments. That said, I'm wondering in the fluff those statistics come from. 40k's never been really good with exact numbers after all.
>>86412595okhear me outchaos manatees
So name for the cult?
>>86410956>>86411934>Forbidden Worship>KnowledgeWhatever swamp god the locals worshipped before getting beat back into the fold after a crusade resurfaced. Probably a demon, and probably the totally human guy who's leading the cult right now.>>86412531>Extensive Bodily Modification>Instruments of the Daemon>Foul Communionpic related except they're throwing industrial equipment and snakes in the chaos pit before they jump in>BeastsA swamp filled with runoff from all the industrial waste the planet produces would be dangerous enough. Combine swamp creatures with whatever changes being bathed in all that gunk would have caused with chaos mutations and whatever training a bunch of swamp voodoo warrior priest people can do.
>>86396925Wait a second, I'm pretty sure that's not the original table from Only War. What is this shit?
Just wondering about how /tg/ would feel about rolling up some more Primarchs (in a different thread obviously). PDF rel.
>>86411905So you're saying the cult cut the head off the snake
>>86419737I’m digging the fluff for this>>86420139Some anon made this and a couple of other tables. I just thought it was neat.>>86420257I’m down but I think those threads can be a bit of a commitment.>>86420673That’s what the Cottonmouths are trying to do. It’s just a shame the leader is a daemon so easier said than done
>>86419553>Visionaries of the Bog>Serpent Seekers>The Brotherhood of the Mire>Seekers of the Old Way
>>86421479based on origin the cult is made up of>conscripts/recruits of the military>factory workers>both of which were subservient to the noblesthey are definitely seething>led by a demon masquerading as a manmake his true form big snake demon giving the cult secret swamp knowledge and Serpent Seekers works perfectly, they're hunting the remaining Cottonmouths and their leader is teaching them about the big snake demon (himself) their ancestors used to worship many, many years ago
So we have the Cottonmouths and the Serpent Seekers. Should we come up with characters for their factions or roll up the CSM warband?
>>86410249>So do we roll up the cult they're fighting now?pdf?
>>86423053let's roll up some traitors then
>>86423918d10 to see if they’re a traitor legion or a renegade chapter
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>86424021
>>86424250>Legion Warband, roll again for secondary element such as allied groups and units (this can stack)Another 1d10
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>86424269
>>86423906looks like 1d4chan table>>86424269>traitors AND renegadesWEW, ain't looking too good cottonmouthbros
>>86424294>Renegade Chapter (once a loyal Space Marine Chapter, now serving Chaos)So they’re a legion and renegade chapter. 1d100 to see why the chapter element went renegade
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>86424329
>>86424394>Lure of Forbidden Knowledge: Marines in the Chapter dabbled in the dark arts of warpcraft and sorcery, thinking that nobody would find out. They were wrong, and the Chapter paid the ultimate price for their heresies.2d100 to see what genedad they have
>>86424415Do we roll twice, one for the renegades and one for the legion? Anyway, they seem to be a good allies for the Serpent Seekers with the Forbidden Worship and Knowledge.
>>86424432It’s 1d100 for each of them. First roll I aas going to make it for the legion, second the renegades
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>86424442In that case I'll roll once again and let another anon roll the other
>>86424449>Word BearersFair enough. 1d100 for the renegades
>>86424415>Knowledge>Lure of Forbidden Knowledgeit's like poetry, it rhymes>>86424432Looks like OP is using the tables from 1d4chan so you can check for yourself. That d100 was just for the renegade chapter's reason they turned traitor.
>>86424484The Word Bearers are coming to hep the chaos undivided cultist restart their ancinet chaos cult, meanwhile the renegades are in for the sorcery the Snake demon knows.It fits perfectly.
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>86424484
>>86424326>looks like 1d4chan table Thanks
>>86424498>>86424520I love it when dice comes together>>86424536>UltramarinesNext up is their devotion to Chaos which is 1d10. For the Legion we can automatically select Fanatical because they are Word Bearers.
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>86424572Let's see if these ultramarines drank the kool-aid
>>86424595>Neutral: The warband believes Chaos to be more of a tool than something to be worshipped, serving the dark gods when it benefits them.Makes sense since they’re more interested in learning than serving the Dark Gods.Next up is their God which is d12. Legion can automatically choose Undivided because they are Word Bearers.
Rolled 5 (1d12)>>86424624
>>86424708I was hoping for minor god, so we could say it was the Serpent daemon, but Slannesh for sorcerers is more interesting than Tzeentch atleast, since there are Keeper of Secrets
>>86424708snakes kind of look like dicks if you think about it
>>86424708>>86424708>>86424733>Slaanesh1d100 for the Warband’s beliefs
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>86425126
Sorry to butt in the middle of rolling, but:>warrior culture>serpent god>closer than kinship>abominable troops and beastsSounds a whole lot like pic related.
>>86425162>For the Dark Gods! - The warband reveres their chosen god(s) above all else.Need another d100 for the renegades
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>86425478
>>86425483>Accept Any And All - Thieves and whores, traitors and scum alike are welcome to join the warband's forces. Mutants, Beastmen, Xenos, and former foes can be found serving in this warband.d10 for their demeanor

>>86424326>couple hundred guys and some abhumans with no reinforcements>against a Chaos cult that is the entire rest of their pre-existing military>and two groups of CSMYeah, they're fucked. But's it's going to be very exciting for all of the two months they manage to continue existing.
>>86425665>Chaos Über Alles: The Marines of this force believe their deities to be the ultimate beings of the galaxy and are willing to serve them for eternity. Champions in the warband will frequently try to prove their worth, accepting any challenge and constantly trying to elevate their status amongst the Warp's chosen.d10 for the renegades.>>86425685Yeah the Cottonmouths are fucked. Their planet is probably considered a lost cause to the Imperium.
Rolled 2 (1d10)>>86425719
>>86425837>Scorched Earth: The battle-brothers of the warband commonly destroy anything they do not need so the enemy cannot use it. Even valuable things, such as captured fortresses and ships, are considered expendable if the foe can use it to their advantage.So Word Bearers are arrogant and want to proce themselves to their gods while Ultramarines just want to take what’s useful and destroy everything else. d10 for mutations
Rolled 8 (1d10)>>86425855
>>86425888I rolled an 8 while having trip 8s.I propose khornate mutations for the Word Bearers' body horror
>>86425888>>86425898>Body Horror: The warband's Marines no longer resemble anything like normal humanity. Compound eyes and insectile mouthparts glitter from within rugose, tumorous faces. Crablike claws and slimy, bubo-ridden tentacles wrap around limbs and throats as the Marines march forth on cloven hooves, their bodies continually warping and twisting as the empyrean ripples around them.Nice trips of Khorne. Another d10 for the renegades
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>86425914
>>86425982>Voice of Evil: The Marines' voices are sinister and painful to the ear. Merely speaking is enough to terrify many of their foes.D10 for the Legion’s mental flaw since they’re fanatical
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>86426022

>>86404223I feel the need to point out this Regiment is essentially Irish.
What about rolling for an inquisitor or rogue trader funneling resources for the Cottonmouths? Or maybe the reason the Cottonmouth remain, is because they're essentially an irrelevant force now, and maybe there are bigger xenos players keeping the traitors and renegades busy?

>>86432712Perhaps it's some sort of device that can't simply be activated from orbit and he and the Cottonmouths are orchestrating a last resort plot to detonate the device before escaping offworld?

>>86432977Yeah. My idea was he’s using the Cottonmouths as bait to try to lure as many of the CSM possible to the planet. If they keep taking out leadership more of them should come to deal with the threat. He’s waiting for it to hit critical max so they can all die in the name of the Emperor
>>86432809>>86432924The people helping the Chaos cult all have ulterior motives too. The word bearers want to make the planet's cult worship the big four and the ultras are only interested in learning their rituals and probably can't be assed to fight unless they feel like stretching their legs. Starting to dislike offworlders to be quite honest. Maybe dealing with them so often is why the nobles were such dicks in the first place.

So what do you think the uniform the Cottonmouths are? Standard Cadians? scifi Confederate/Union army ? Cowboy gear?
>>86438596something inspired by upper class nobility dress norms would be a neat touch
>>86438607So maybe some Mardi Gras feathers on their helmets. Officers look like pic related
>>86438596right hand side, top to bottom>Scintillan Fusiliers>Ventrillian Nobles>random cowboyFirst two are an example of an imperial regiment that draws from nobility, and then a random cowboy.Their homeworld isn't wealthy, so I don't picture them as done up as the guy in the top right. Really nice scabbards, sidearms, and swords though, like the officers from the union/confederacy. Big plumage in the helmets/hats, with the arrangement and colors showing what family you are from. So something like ventrillian nobles mixed with scifi civil war. Maybe dull green and greys for most uniforms and armor with civil war great coats on top but with mardi gras colors slapped here and there. Beards and mustaches are part of the uniform.Cowboy look is for after the purge? Regulations gone out the window and everyone's just using what they have scavenged or what's been given by the trader/inquisitor.
>>86440164It makes sense if their uniform is made of basic materials, but is off specific and fanciful styling.The issue isn't likely the access to the uniforms, it's that no one is bothering to wear 'em right.Ergo you get swamp cowboy.
>>86440164>Beards and mustaches are part of the uniform.>everybody is walking around with beards>between the stresses of combat, industrial runoff from the mires and bogs their homeworld, and just some of them being grizzled old veterans the beard goes grey>hence "Cottonmouth"common enlisted confirmed zoomers just mad they couldn't grow facial hair
>>86436884Only name suggestions I see for them were the Heralds of the Void and the Golden Choir. For the Heralds a Dark Apostle leading them would make sense since they’re word bearers and are fanatical. But they also like Daemon Engines and biological warfare so a Warpsmith wouldn’t be a crazy idea either. For the Golden Choir seems like it’d be a Chaos Lord since they seem fairly basic
>>86432712>I am the bearer of His word, of His glory, of His grace, of His majesty. I am the bearer of His duty, a thousand-by-a-thousand-by-a-thousand-weight upon the shoulders of the frail. I am the bear of His secret, a whisper and a roar and an endless lie. I am the bearer of His hatred, of His fury, of His vengeance, of His terror. I am the bearer of the end of all things. A man of black eyes, unblinking, ancient, yet set in the clean fleshed face of a boy. His hand never leaves the bauble at his neck, a fist-sized device, ornate and whorled, its surface sometimes shifting like quicksilver just as one looks away from it. Tomes hang from his hips, shuddering in their chains long after he stops moving. Where he came from, no one knows the truth, but everyone knows a half-truth. A massacre, a coup, a planet in smoke, an ocean of blood parted in his wake, whispers and guesses made half in jest. Better not to ask for the other halves. In the dead of night he can be found some ways away from camp, pacing, gazing at the stars, scrawling in the ground, his feet tracking terrible images in the muck. By morning the earth is packed flat, as smooth as glass.

>>86458906>Agri-World: Lightly-urbanized worlds which have been completely converted for use in food production, be it natural or hydroponic; grain, vegetables, meat and hide, or the occasional alien fungus or maggot casserole. Sometimes ruled directly by the Administratum or under Mechanicus authority through a Knight House.>Industrial-AgriWorldWeird flex but aight. 3d10 for its tech level
>>86458942>Industrial-AgriWorldswamp plantations but also heavy industrial centers dotted around the planet? or is the industrial development "new" (last couple of decades) and done after the quarantine went up?
>>86459128Maybe it was relatively backwards, but the Administratum wanted a civilized world instead of an agri-world and had been investing in building it up before shit went down. Friction with offworlders resettled to kickstart the process could also partially explain the initial interest in the world's old religion.
>>86458942>>86459128>>86459170What kind of world quality did you go for? It doesn't need to be a hyper-inefficient shithole. It could be "Agridustrial" with self-sustaining and self-sufficient populations within the planet's manufactoria and their indentured populations.

Everything is mechanised and automated. The population mostly lives in large cities, and computers are starting to become common in all things. Solid projectile weapons are the norm for military forces, and advanced armour has started to appear for personnel and vehicles.

Maybe the books he has strapped to his hip are what the traitor smurfs are looking for and he figured he would get two birds with one stone.
