This thread will never truly die! Long live the Emperor!
>>557577Sorry guys about not getting the thread up earlier, this weekend was a little rough for me and I am worn out, I will try to a few posts tonight, but I figured Id make a new thread, just so people can post again and to let you guys know Im still keeping this thread going
>>557592DOWN WITH THE CORPSE GOD. UP WITH THE GOD MALICE!Howdy OP and All good.
>>557577Ready to roll on.
>>557577FOR BOB!>>557604YOU KILLED BOB!

>>557663BOB DIED AS HE LIVED, GIANT.
>>557729We need a tribe of Ogryns
>>557772No, We need Baneblades. I promised that one guy and I don't break them.
>>557797Give the tribe baneblades?
>>557772>>557797We could do with both.Though Baneblades don't reproduce, sadly
>>557807>>557801If I vote Ogryns. We get banes? Gonna be totally honest, Not sure how you'd import a tribe like that without a major upheaval of the natives. Unless we toss them onto 5 or the north.
>>557797I wanna get some Lightnings for our air assault regiment as well. Air superiority -> uncontested airspace -> rape mode activatated.
>>557816Could always set them down on the mineral planet, if not I'm sure theres some remote place where no one lives on our planet they could be settled at.
>>557828well I know they'd be great at mining shit, but not so much the 'finer' parts of mining. Long as the hivers don't bully our giant stupid tribe. Also, Where do we even GET a tribe from? how would that even work? Putting candy up a ramp to a ship?
>>557848That's what a trader is for :)
>>557848Well, they'd also be great for bolstering the PDF on that world since at best we'll be able to pull some gangers and the like for PDF.Eh, I'm sure one of the Rogue traders we've made our acquaintance with would know something. Hell, one had a Ogryn bodyguard.
>>557906That's not a whole tribe tho.
>>557945Well, no it isn't. If you can get one ogryn you can get more I'm sure.
Are we doing this or what?
>>558853mate, read the OP's second thing. Either tonight or tommorrow.
>>557577>>548250>>548258>>548277>>548317>>548319>>548396You request 5 million hivers, explaining to your father your plans to build a mining installation on the Tarkon V, a barren, but mineral rich world in the system...He is impressed by your ambition, but unfortunately cannot offer much to you besides raw manpower and some provisions to feed them for the first few months when they arrive...You go on to talk about some of the things going on at home, before leaving the astropathic chamber and returning to work...A few days later you receive a vox transmission from Xeroth stating that shipyard is now finished and we can now start manufacturing starships...What would we like to build firstA. Claymore-class corvette, a small fast warship, can be equipped for scouting, or with heavier weapons to make it a threat to larger ships (3 months)B. A gas freighter, allows us to carry more hydrogen gas, and other gasses for delivery after mining them (3 months)C. General purpose transport, can be used to carry goods, troops, colonists, whatever you need to do, slow and bulky, but they get the job done...(3 months)D. Other(write-in)
>>559006>A. Claymore-class corvette, a small fast warship, can be equipped for scouting, or with heavier weapons to make it a threat to larger ships (3 months)
>>559006B. A gas freighter, allows us to carry more hydrogen gas, and other gasses for delivery after mining them (3 months)This is one of our major exports, along with food. Interesting that the Mechanicus will barter us for hydrogen instead of harvesting it from stars. We must have a rich deposit.
>>559006>B. A gas freighter, allows us to carry more hydrogen gas, and other gasses for delivery after mining them (3 months)Pay off our loan quicker. We can then get even BETTER shit from the nerds.
>>559006>B. A gas freighter, allows us to carry more hydrogen gas, and other gasses for delivery after mining them (3 months)
>>559029too be fair, That means they'd have to spend the time and resources to harvest and refine it. We do all that and then hand over a finished product.
>>559238Hydrogen from a star is probably the one place you're going to find any source of hydrogen in the wild. Hydrogen reacts with everything, so there's gonna be no purer source.
>>559262Gas giants? Sense thats were we are mining our shite from.
>>559279Even then, there's a ton of shit that hydrogen will bond with. Nitrogen. Sulfur. That sort of thing.
>>559321I dunno then, all I know is that gas giant is our source of trade goods.
>>559137>>559034>>559029You have Xeroth get STC data for a basic gas freighter, and oversee the production of the new shipIt will take several months worth of steel to build the ship, but that shouldnt be a problem for us. With our shipments of gas mining increasing, our cruiser should be paid off in less than a year.Inquisitor Corean, while not necessarily in good health, has recovered enough to think and speak clearly.He has requested that we allow him to use our astropath, and you agree.Over the next few days several dozen inquisition warships gather in orbit above Tarkon IV, many using our docking facilities and taking on provisions.Corean has ordered us to join the Inquisition force, along with a naval squadron and several other planetary defense fleets in the sector, with the intent to head off a small Necron battlefleet....Apparently they have been spotted near a strategic hiveworld close to the western frontier and an invasion is considered imminent....We will at least need to send the cruiser and one of our regiments, and there is a decent chance they may not be coming back...Who should we send?A. The Jungle RangersB. The Mechanized regimentC. The Airbone RegimentD. Other(Write-in)
>>559378>A. The Jungle Rangers>B. The Mechanized regimentZachias has been only training men. Let's see him on the field of battle.
>>559406Lets do this, it gives a good excuse to raise another regiment.
>>559378Can we do half, and half?If we can half of b, and d.I would like to get our rangers some experience, but don't really know the landscape of the planet they would be fighting on.
>>559378>B. The Mechanized regimentIt'll take a bit of firepower to handle Necrons>>559406We should probably not do that. We have already been having problems with people hearing about him, the less see him the better.
>>559417You can do half and half, the planet they will fighting on is a densely populated hive world, but there is a strong possibility of it turning into a longer campaign, with fighting on several planets
>>559378send the jungle fightersi really can't stand those guys
>>559438It's an Inquisitorial mission. Anybody surviving is gonna get broken up and commandeered for inquisitor's retinues or shot outright for corruption. Nobody talks about these missions.
>>559452Even other inquisitors?
>>559378A. The Jungle RangersB. The Mechanized regiment
I think this is a great opportunity to show off our troops to the Inquisition. Didn't we mention before that we wanted to be a source for inquisitorial inquisitorial stormtroopers? This is how we begin showing off our best foot soldiers.
>>559497We did actually, thanks for the heads up.>>559463You'd be suprised at what the Big I does to cover its ass.
>>559521>You'd be suprised at what the Big I does to cover its ass.Yeah, and not all other Inquisitors are as loose as our friend, we don't need our men being seen led by some SM.
>>559378>>559378>With our shipments of gas mining increasing, our cruiser should be paid off in less than a year.Instead of paying off the cruiser faster can we keep the original payment schedule and use the extra shipments to purchase the equipment needed for Tarkon V
>>559702If we can deal with the Necron fleet then sure.
>>559465>>559447>>559417>>559438>>559416You decide to send elements of the Jungle and Mechanized regiments....Over the course of a week, the fleet stages around Tarkon IV, and our men are prepared for deployment.An Impressive fleet is formed, with 3 battleships, 8 cruisers and 2 dozen escorts, the necron fleet is allegedly led by one of their legendary tombships and escorted by several cruisers and smaller craft...You bid farewell to the men, before releasing them into Inquisition service...You bid Captain Felix the best of luck for the mission...Much to your surprise, you find that a small crusade has been called to purge the necrons from the western frontier.... Apparently Corean has some serious pull after all...Back on Tarkon IV, you receive a message from Tzavaras, offering to sell you some more product...You have enough to trade for 10 items....He has shipments available of all the typical stuff he sells us, plus he has obtained several ships full of mining and industrial equipment, originally intended for the western frontier...What would we like to trade from him?A squadron of 5 baneblade tanks(limit of 1 buy)A shipment of heavy weapons(missile launchers, autocannons, lascannons)A shipment of 100,000 lasriflesA Company sized unit of Leman Russ tanks(20 tanks)A Valkyrie Squadron(5 aircraft)A Company unit worth of Chimera (20 APCs)A Company worth of Basilisk Artillery(20 mobile Artillery pieces)A shipment of manufacturing equipmentA shipment of mining equipmentA squadron of Valkyries(5 craft)A shipment of 10,000 plasma weaponsA shipment of 10,000 sets of carapace armorOther(Write-in)

Is there a difference or does that mean we can buy up to two sets.If so buy up both of them.
>>560183>>560104Guys we can pick up to 10 items.
>>560206Let's NOT use all of our fucking units of trade goods for the time being mate. We might need them in a pinch.
>>560206Yeah, and we can keep goods in reserve. Like for our tithe instead of men.
>>560212Maybe you should use you fucking head and realize will have more than enough to spend.
Actually, don't we already have plenty of lasrifles? And aren't we making some?
>>560245>Uses 8-9 points>WE HAVE ENOUGH TO SPENDI'm pretty sure we only get like 1-2 a month mate. Don't be Salty because somebody dones't want to fucking spend 99% of our goods.
>>560241>>560246So we stop sending men every year and send goods?We could probably make lasrifles. We just haven' decided to yet. Plus we are ordering "plasma weapons" not lasrifles.
wow 10.000 plasma guns are actually a hugeeeeeeeee lot of those
>>560275Folks are ordering lasrifles too.
>>560266we get more than that per turn, and we will be getting more afterwards we we have mining set up.>Calls himself Salt mind>Calls others salty>Not projecting salty bitterness onto others.
>>560278Picture if we get our Marine and Tech priest too look'em over. Might get pimping and safe Crusader era designs made.
>>560282just that one guy, and hes outnumbered.>100,000 lasriflesThe fuck? That alone if there were that many rifles would use up all of our trade.
>>560292I'm still used to being on /tg/ where everybody is Salty, My bad mate. I miss my home. Also, do we? I thought we only got like 2 Per-turn currently because the rest is going towards the Tech-Priests to pay off our debt for the warship.
>>560278I want hotshot lasrifles over the standard ones.
>>560311I still go to both boards, its just one click away.In fact I'm browsing the catalog right now, and was in a Halo quest there last week.
>>560336Same, But Its kinda annoying. I'm strongly against this board, and want us to go all go home. But anyway, Do we really make more then 2 per-turn currently?
>>560309Nvm, thought we previously traded for 10,000.

>>560404>Necron tech that he might of "salvaged" from the western frontier.Danger will robinson. It's heresy to consort with xenos.
>>560349Yes, yes the creation of this board, despite the perks and the reasoning behind it given by the mods or whatever was weak and stupid, but at least interesting quests have a better chance at finding players (not that they often continue due to QM abandonment,)
>>560404Also could we get a recap on what we have.Manufacturing base, population, ships, troops, etc.
>>560424well they always suffered from QM Abandonment, Either that or they fuck there computer in some way, Good old QM curse. >>560404Could... we even attempt to RnD that Necron tech? Also would that even be smart? We're currently the staging ground for the Big I and might very well be for along time after this.
>>560422I know, but is so tempting to see what he could have. QM mentioned in the last thread how we might have competition from other governors in the future, and having some necron tech that couldn't be traced to us, or made to look like they had, could be useful in the future if need be.
>>560443I was thinking we could store it on our mining planet away from anyone.
>>560443mechanicus guide to Necron tech1. never deal with Necron techor2.be grey knight, they got some anti psycher gear them might be from them.
>>560444You know, I don't care too much about making the most money in the sector. We need protection from the Dark Angels, and we need to not piss off the Inquisition, which is on our planet.
>>560454>>560464If i remember currently Phase-swords are from the Crons but what would we do in terms of what we got? We don't have any major labs set up and having parts sit around usually isn't that smart.
>>560404>Necron tech that he might of "salvaged" from the western frontier.Get that heresy out of here
I'm not sure so I will need someone to help me confirm but it appears we are getting 10 "trade" per turn.>>560443>Could... we even attempt*Blam* Heresy?
>>560473you'd need grey knight level resources and clearance along with a forge world with equal capabilities to mars to be able to even start.
I guess my Necron tech suggestion is a little controversial. What do you guys think about my other write-ins though?
>>560527Other thread, QM stated we needed to get our shipyard larger? I think before we could make Cruisers. Information is useful as hell, and I don't think stealth encryption works like that sense we need astropaths from system to system.
>>560527>Stealth encryption communication equipmentBig =I= will just send us dossiers on how they're doing if we ask.>Information about other nobles, and planets around us that would be useful in giving us an advantage if we started trading with them.This is okay, I guess? CIA factbook tier facts should be easy enough to come by. May slow the quest down though.>Ship blueprints that would expand what we could build at our shipyard, or at least could after we expanded it.This is fine. Light cruisers like Dauntlesses can be built by planetary shipyards just fine.>Any ships, like corvettes, or freighters.(Since we have two we should invest in an corvette escort for them, but still have some to guard the planet.Noo. That's getting expensive.
>>560404>>560422>>560443>>560464Well now hold on.... Maybe if we were to establish a Inquisitor base with our friend here, and he was willing to handle the xeno tech, while we "provide staff" for the facility, perhaps something could be done that way.>>560493>>560473Very good arguments against messing with things that exceed our abilities.
>>560562Qm stated that our Big I friend here was a Lord? and won't be doing shit for months-years. So we might very well be able to talk him into setting up a real base in this system for us. We did save his life after all. That could work.
>>560404>>560527I think corvettes fall into the escort categoryhttp://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Imperial_Navy#Escorts>>560579I'm more interested in him letting us borrow his ships hes got in orbit of our planet. All that unused cargo capacity sitting in space.We can even give their crews some ground-side time, provided they go through our very basic and rudimentary screenings, seriously we should set up a space port, and a ground port that does multi-level and through screenings.

>>562975>B. The best hunters of Tarkon IV, slaying mighty beasts in the jungles and on the plains aloneWe can also start the gene-therapy with them. Every inductee to the order undergoes gene-therapy to enhance their abilities as a warrior and better protect us.
>>562975>B. The best hunters of Tarkon IV, slaying mighty beasts in the jungles and on the plains alone.^ For body guards.>A. Well read, warrior-poets, leaders and representatives of their people in every way^ That if we want representatives of the planet while we are away.
>>562975>B. The best hunters of Tarkon IV, slaying mighty beasts in the jungles and on the plains alone
>>562975A. Well read, warrior-poets, leaders and representatives of their people in every wayWe've got a planet full of bad ass, let's make the order a tool for channeling it.
>>562975I'm changing my vote here >>562985 too A because a good point was made.
>>562997>>563336I thought we were going for a bunch of beefed up gene modded killing machine?
>>562975A. Well read, warrior-poets, leaders and representatives of their people in every way
>>563373Anon's before decided to not do that, plus nothing really 'changes' in terms of those who undergo the treatment expect becoming HUGE and things of that nature. Plus we can do it to anybody.
>>563393Eh. Warrior poets has just always sounded faggy as hell to me.Was more folks for making beastly killing machines before, but thats how it goes with quests that arent on much of a schedule i suppose.
>>563443It might be faggy as shit but its useful for our Personal Guard.
>>563443Think of them as sophisticated warriors, intelligent, able to read and write in more than their tribal language, understand politics and discuss tactics etc. Useful as a personal guard among the Lords and Ladies and other higher-ups of the sector.
>>562975C. Philosopher soldiers. We need muscle that can think, and that are fanatically loyal to us. You know the Jesuit order? Originally shock troops for the Vatican. I also like the idea of troops we can put in charge of trouble spots or as administrators when we need extra hands.
>>563505That's... A mate
>>563492oooooh....muscle we can train and other nobles can "borrow". Guaranteed to hear everything and say nothing. Except to us. Acquire currency.
>>563492That sounds like you're looking for future lords then knights desu. Sophisticated? Intelligent? Not things that are super useful on the vanguard.
>>563511"Poets" are artsy fags. "Philosophers" are scholars and stoics.
>>563519>leaders and representatives of their people in every way
>>563515I personally didn't vote for that option but I think those traits would work well for a personal guard.
>>563515That's what a "knight" is. An officer, usually with a fief.
>>563523Uh...dude, unless this world is a bunch of Greeks, I don't think philosophers are representative of the people in every way...or even one way.
>>563492Hm, im with>>563515
>>563537You realize the North part of the world has abunch of Medieval age type of people right? So not everybody is a south tribal-savage.
>>563537Yea, representatives of our people would be the biggest badasses around, not necessarily super smart and eloquent but they could snap a normal mans back like a twig before we start beefing him up
>>563554Eh, I'll go with A. As long as they're able to read, think, and con.
>>563560QM hasn't fucked us over yet. So i think its good.
>>563575Do you think QM would mind if we fucked with him some?
>>562975>A. Well read, warrior-poets, leaders and representatives of their people in every way
>>563711Yes, Quite abit actually. I'd rather not piss off a QM unless i had too.
>>563383>>562997>>563505>>563560You found the Order of the Sky(we can rename), comprised of nobles taken from the top families of Tarkon IV.The trials of membership are difficult and consist of many steps, first the warriors must prove themselves sound of body, proving victorious in combat trials against other aspirants, they then must prove their eternal loyalty to the Order, and the greater Imperium, taking a blood oath...The warriors must prove themselves able to speak at least 3 language, including the common Imperial tongue fluently....They then must prove themselves sound of mind, writing a treatise on religion, philosophy, warfare or a number of high level topics, with the goal to increase their understanding and help advance the people and culture of Tarkon IV.Skilled with the blade and the pen, these warriors are fanatically loyal to you first and foremost, their training also consisting of heavy indoctrination in addition to education and combat training...Their works and the ancient works of the world have been gathered in a great library, which in addition to being a large castle with modern technology, serves as their headquarters and base of operations...The best of the Order are inducted into your guard, and also serve as a diplomatic Corps of sorts as well....There is also always the possibility of founding a rival knightly order in the future, after all, a little healthy competition never hurt anybody....The first reports have come back from the campaign against the Necrons, while their fleet has not been brought to battle yet, Necron ground forces have been located on a frontier world that appears to have been harvested of all life....Our men have performed admirably, earning the respect of the Inquisition forces and the other Imperials fighting alongside them...In particular a young lieutenant, a jungle tribesmen in his previous life, led a devastating ambush along with the rest of his heavy weapons platoon, cutting down dozens of necron warriors, only losing a handful of men in the process...The Inquisition will likely want to use our troops more often, a mixed blessing...You are awoken in your chambers in the middle of the night, apparently a contact was detected on the edge of system. Rapidly approaching your station....You hear her voice over the vox as you reach the command center..."Maxi, this is Isabelle, remember me from the party? Please let me aboard...."You have the corvette, fly in close to the ship, and it is indeed the Dandelion, the star yacht of House Tarvayen...She hugs you as she disembarks the ship, clearly dissapointed at the lack of luxury on the station, she quickly orders her servants to bring her things on board, with over a dozen men bringing various luggage, consisting of hundreds of sets of clothing and dozens of pairs of shoes....You ask why she is here...
>>564012"So Maxi.... My father may have had me betrothed to another man, but I ran away before the wedding, now we can be together instead! Arent you excited Maxi!"You barely know this woman, having nothing more than a one night stand at Johanns party....Her father is a powerful and influential lord in the sector...What do we do?(write-in)Also thats all I got for the night guys...Sorry tomorrow should be better, I have been really busy with work and other stuff lately, it will probably be kind of slow this week, but should pick up during the weekend as I have no big plans as of now
>>564029Can you give a refresher as to who the hell this woman is again? And also an updated list of our supplies Shmeh?
>>564039One of the skanks at that orgy/gambling party we went to.>>564029>What do we do?(write-in)It'd do well to give her father a ring, a one night stand and old broad breaks a betrothal and wants to move in?
>>564012Far as another order of knights goes if we get to thatWith naming it should have some duality, like order of the dawn and order of the dusk etcNow about those Ogryns... where we gonna be putting 'em folks? I could dig having our own Nork Deddog
>>564029So we put her on stasis and sent her to her father on Sanguinala?
>>564012I thought she was running from the necros, marry her to a rouge trader or something.
>>564029So we need to treat her with respect due to her station and who her father is but we should also keep and her men on lockdown. They aren't to leave, they don't get the right to roam wherever they please on the station and absolutely wont be going planetside. Have a couple of our guards with her at all times. Also, obviously, we need to contact her father immediately and have him come collect his daughter.
>>564029I'd say Call up old Lord Tarvayen, ask what the deal is. We're too young for this shit.Then pretend to sorta go along with it, under the guise of "I need to think about this" or something. Makes sure she has nice quarters, but they're secured.
>>564029Voting these >>564194 >>564189
>>564194Oh I know! We love her and can't wait to get married and spend our honeymoon on crusade. That should have her running.
>>564249>Wanting to marry a degenerate.I highly doubt her character, she'd probably raise a kid worse off than our brother. Speaking of, we did abandon our first born, if the woman's claims are accurate, and our brother hasn't really improved much.
>>564272We sent our kid off to a lifetime of service to the Emprah. Could've been much worse desu>inb4 she hooks up with our deadbeat brother
>>564249This could be really funny. Explain you'd love to marry her! She can help you tend the Grox, hunt Nauga, whip the peasants, roll in lovely muck, and all the other fun filthy stuff medieval worlds are famed for!
>>564293>>564249I change my vote to this. After calling Lord Tarvayen.
>>564293We can do away with our riches we only need our love for each other and the Emperor. Now let's look for that cardinal so we can marry and donate all our money.
>>564293And give her the most spartan accomidations that is filled with primitive junk from planet, and act like its the height of luxury that we can offer from this entire backworld planet. She'll be running away faster than a speeding RT from an inquisition fleet!
>>564330We should give her the longest tour of our armory possible until she's all but begging to leave."--and here's where I stores all 400,000 of my Las Guns!"
>>564356Make up names for each rifle, and introduce them to her.
>>564356"I sold my luxury yacht for them but it was worth it. "
>>564356Definetly this.Then state that she needs to start her military training on the planet below immediately. Every body must be fighting fit to preserve the Holy Dominion of our Emperor. The spartan nature of our space station will add credence to this story.
>>564363>>564356And invite her to join us in singing the Litany of Holy Firepower over each one
We really do need to look into our potential marriages tho, I'm not too sure how such things work in 40k, but as with everything a political marriage will always have benefits.I'm pretty curious about the RTs daughter myself. Maybe we could get some sweet sweet gear out of him? Maybe even a badass ship for our flagship? All manner of trade contacts to be sure, easy access to all manner of mercenary and pirate contacts to be sure. Father inlaw with a badass fleet?Though, from what I gather from lexicanum there are 32,800 hiveworlds in the Imperium, so it would seem that we come from pretty prestigious stock and such a marriage may even be beneath us.Further, if we can ever get our brother shaped up into anything worthwhile I should imagine we could get something out of marrying him off to someone influential.
>>564768Pretty sure we made the RT daughter jelly at the dance to help wooo her, and if she ever does come up we might very well get first dibs on the goods he has. I'd prefer we marry her to be honest.
>>564776>Pretty sure we made the RT daughter jelly at the dance to help wooo her,I do recall that being how it went, and to good effect.Assuming she's his heir, our own childrens would have one hell of an empire to inherit with us on the out and about colonizing more worlds.I think becoming a semi autonomous entity within the Imperium would be an interesting outcome no matter how we go about it.Speaking of, aren't we in line to inherit a hive world?
>>564835I'm not sure it would be smart of us to inherit said world when we have an 'entire' system, we could hand it off to another brother? or family member. Also we're already pretty much semi-Autonomous.
>>564292Gonna be fucked up if we meet him again. We didn't want to raise him, but we raised a dog.
Even though she did some slurry things we should keep in mind our character did the same thing if not more at that party. Though she probably has the most experience at that sort of thing. But if that's the kind of things nobles do I wonder if we would even be able to get a bride that is considered pure.For the girl however I think we should see what she can actually offer us in marriage before we decide or not. In truth we could always get a mistress later on. If her family is powerful marriage wouldn't seem so bad.It would also be a good idea to see who her former fiance was and what he might do in retribution against us. I feel like it's gonna be that young governor who might be our rival with the desert fighters.
>>564856you make it sound like we're gonna keep him,>>564855you mean our bastard? He ain't got fucking rights. His a bastard
>>564842Well, I don't reckon it'd really be up to us if we're set to inherit. Depending on distance it'd be decent enough to have kin running it in our stead I suppose. That's way on down the line questwise tho.far as I mean about semi-autonomous I mean like what the ultramarines got going orhttp://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Agathean_Domainhttp://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Manachean_CommonwealthNot necessarily left to our own devices as it goes on the frontier, but head of an influential political block within the Imperium itself.>>564855Honestly, I wish the vote would have been to keep him around, but it could prove to be interesting to see him come about down the line.>>564856It's more the had a one night stand and she shows up looking to move in deal that would be the issue.
>>564861Oh then there is a chance ya, The issue being is need to secure alliances with the Tech-Priests, Navigitors and also Astropaths, AND get this all approved by the Lords of Terra. Pretty sure most of those are ANCIENT compared to when we are existing now.
>>564867Well, we're already buddy buddy with a Lord Inquisitor and have been working well at being in good with the AdMech. A good start I'd say.
>>564869I would't call 2 trade deals very 'buddy buddy' with the Tech-Priests. Though we did save the Lord Inquisitor's life with our medical Kit and Marine. But it'll still take more.
>>564875You got me mixed fella, buddy buddy with the LI. But, as I said, a start.
>>564875I think we're on pretty good terms with the Lord Inquisitor, I mean... he is even giving us advice on how to survive the DA and keep our resident Space Marines on the down-low instead of just BLAMing us. He constantly gives us advice, we cooperate with him often and he personally escorted us to the big party with all the important locals. As for the AdMech, yeah we are probably on decent terms but we still have a ton of work to put in there.
>>564880Well we did kinda return the favor by saving his life. >>564879Apologizes, its going on 4am here. Whelp good night guys! See you all tommorrow.
>>564858No one has rights in this universe, and our brother is more of a bastard at the moment. It something that could reflect poorly on us down the road if we try to ever maintain a moral high ground.>>564861Kind of the same sentiments, but we were busy, am we didn't entirely want to deal with a kid. I wonder about the mother though.>>564856I want to find out as much as possible, before we even entertain the idea of a marriage. For all we know, she was disowned, and her inheritance striped and titles stripped from her.
By the way, I believe that it is not a bad idea to let the rogue trade a share of the mining profits as this will increase the likelyhood that he will interfere or send aid in the event of an alien incursion.As to how to deal with Isabelle, you may always bore her to death to make her leave on her own accord, but at the same time, she may eventually get her hands on a warrant of totrade and we have been relying on her family to run us guns. There is also a possibility we could leverage some assassins to kill her bethrothed. We could attempt to pull some strings from our social club. We could also go to her father and offer him a cut on all our future operations in exchange for her daughter, but she may just leave us hanging like she did the other lord.Best course of action for the welfare of this planet is probably to let the rogue trader to come visit and tell him that we've reconsidered the mining deal and think that it is actually a great idea and use that as a pretext to have him come over. Then we will talk about how do we handle this situation. There may be a conflict of interest if we wanna marry into a rogue trader house and keep impressing the inquisition since they would probably use us for trafficking of illegal goods.
>>564880Well, he recognises that a rapidly growing military power is a great when you're dealing with rampant alien incursions.
We should get that mining planet running fast I think, because we need somewhere to stick those hivers.
>>564890%25 of a planets mining output is not worth a old freighter, we could buy a few new cargo ships for much, much less. At most, I'd give him %5, and he sends aid whenever the planet is threatened.
>>564890>how to deal with Isabelle, you may always bore her to death to make her leave on her own accord, but at the same time, she may eventually get her hands on a warrant of totrade and we have been relying on her family to run us guns.Isabelle isn't the Rogue Traders daughter anon, she is the daughter of some powerful Lord in a nearby system. We hooked up with her at the previous party. The Rogue Traders daughter we met and hooked up with at another party further back, the ball with all the nobles and military folk.
>>564890No mining rights given too the RT mate. 25% is fucking massive and he donest help us because he wants too. He does it because he profits from it. >>564894Pretty sure we just bought the kit for it.and if not.we can always call the Tech-Priests. We've paid our loans off so far so no reason they couldn't loan us a ship to transport hives and mining things to the world. Long as we don't state 'mmmhhm so rich'
>>564890As I put forward earlier, we might could offer marriage to his daughter and his aid in colonizing the planet as a dowry. Some small profits going to him, perhaps fueling rights and all. Would be uniting our families, so it'd have a fair bit of incentive for him I'd think.
>>564894We have plenty of space and enough food surplus to provide for them, but from all the recent population influx we should be near our capacity.Lets set up the mining operation first before we start a proper settlement. They can slowly be transferred to planet after every transport run.>>564890We met her at that lazy hedonistic Planetary Governor's party a while back with the gambling.See>>545150>>564899I think we can find a better political marriage than her.
Has anyone considered the inquisitor might be a heretic?
>>564941From what I remember (I might be wrong), he is a moderate radical likely of Ordos Xenos or possibly Ordos Hereticus. That would explain his Xenos weapon and the fact that he is ok with the Space Marines. Other than that, why do you assume he is a heretic?
>>564946Mostly because he is being so accommodating to us. Narratively, it sets him up to later be a traitor who strikes at us from within when we are least prepared for it. And even without that sort of metagame thought, it seems suspicious to me that such a powerful figure is so accessible to us. If not heresy, then there must be something we're not seeing here at work. Either way, I would be cautious about him and less willing to just trust him with everything.
>>564950Well we've been pretty useful so far and we are in a great position for his forces to fall back to and base operations out of. Also, as a previous anon said, he has noticed our ability to drum up well equipped and and skilled soldiers which is always useful if he needs firepower. We've followed through on his orders every time he has given them and shown ourselves to be quite useful to him. We're also something of a rising star in this area it would seem, that is something he might want a hand in reputation wise.All this being said however, it's still the grimdark future of 40k and we should keep our eyes open for betrayal from everyone.
>>564941>Has anyone considered the inquisitor might be a heretic?How could we ever suspect such a powerful agent of the emperor being a heretic?I mean hopefully we've just a fast and loose LI hanging around us that we've managed to be very helpful towards, and we should keep playing it like that unless some serious red flags start showing.
>>564941Even if he's a heretic, that is inconsequential. We cannot do anything about it and we should not do anything about it as it's drastically overstepping our boundaries.
>>564950>it seems suspicious to me that such a powerful figure is so accessible to us. If not heresy, then there must be something we're not seeing here at work. Shmeh just runs a superfucking easy quest.>Cruiser>Multiple squadrons of baneblades>Space marinesSuspension of disbelief can go so far but this isn't the 40k I know.
>>564895I don't think he'd bother sending much aid for meager 5%.
>>564896Just bore her to death, I guess or something.
>>564972>Shmeh just runs a superfucking easy quest.Be nice to have more challenge and difficulty honestlyOnly 1 squad of baneblades tho
>>564896>>564906Oh, ok then Just have his dad pick her up and make sure to bore her to death while waiting for him.No way in hell should we marry to a lord we don't know just because we met her daughter in a mildly heretical party.
>>564976>>564972Then go run your own? So far we've avoided doingthe stupider shitand had we not warned out Big I friend we probably would've been fucked hard.
>>564976>>565192Pretty certain its only easy for now. its not hard to ramp up the difficulty. The issue is to make it fun and balanced at that point.I'd like to think the reasoning and such will revel in time after a bit of polishing and development. Like Corean making good use of us or whatever. We did in the end provide treatment that no doubt saved his life, to that end we've already paid off a bit in his eyes.
>>565304Plus you know the Crusade that's on the brink, the Necrons, and the Orcs could of been a massive problem. So while we currently have it 'easy' by dodging a few problems, there is heaps set up and could go to shit in a moment.
>>565354We got super lucky with that cause of our rolls.
>>564012>>564029Confine her in the most comfortable and luxurious room we have available that can be securely contained from the outside;Investigate exactly who and how powerful are her father and her betrothed; Appeal to our memory of realpolitik and what nobles in this version of the 40k-verse are like, with regards to the average degree of degeneracy and wrathfulness; Hold on making a decision to call up her father or her betrothed or the local priest or slaver until we have the data requested above; Under no circumstances will we do any of the following:• Act on the advice of any character voiced by Gilbert Gottfried; • Allow our trusted lieutenants to be left alone with the unmarried daughter; • Allow the unmarried daughter into our supreme command center; • Discuss any plans regarding things we should not have or know in front of the unmarried daughter; • Let on that we believe the unmarried daughter is a spy (she is totally a spy btw); • Personally investigate any malfunction in or near the unmarried daughter's tastefully decorate totally-not-a-prison-cell room; In general, politely treat this person as a potential hostile while trying not to let on that we think so while keeping all options over to be rid of her in one way or another.
I've got a suggestion to appease the local folks and their worries about having their culture drowned by high tech shit and bunch of foreign scum.We must invest into creating monuments which honour and venerate their martial traditions. Also create more knighthood orders and warrior lodges. Let's turn this world into a tournament world.
I believe the real reason she came was because she is selfish and stupid. She thinks we are this super cool drug lord with a huge army and because of that, she thinks she can probably use us to weasel out of getting married and continue a life of sex, drugs and alcohol. Make sure she is shipped to her father ASAP.Our guns are for fighting enemies of the imperium, not for her amusement.
>>565642You a closeted Khorne worshipper?
>>565680You can't expect to get good recruits if you let their martial culture fade away in favour of merkel tier politics.
>>565714Muslims don't worship the god emperor mate, therefore we'd kill them.
>>565714I'm not the one calling for millions of immigrants without screening them ([spoilers]for genestealers[spoiler/])
>>564029shack up and get married to her.
>>565734>>565728We need that mining world up and running fast so we can stick the hiver scum in there.
>>565728Tallarn are a thing
>>565714Their martial culture can evolve from hunters into soldiers.
Why do we care about the native population's opinion about anything?
>>566046Because its gonna be one of the reason we're so well known? Our trained soldiers?
>>566046Paternalism. We high kingAlso, its a way to keep from destroying the flavor of the planet.
>>566065Is their opinion somehow going to limit their ability to be turned into good guardsmen? "I was gonna kick some ork butts today, but then I remembered how the sky king didn't respect my culture very much before he shipped me off to fight them so now I think I'll just not kick ork butts."
>>566120This is a better explanation.
>>566127They're afraid of losing their culture, if we move too quickly in lifting up their society and totally ignore those fears there is a chance they could revolt. Obviously we could put a quick and violent end to that but I'd suggest it is better to have a happy and compliant people than an angry, distrustful and begrudgingly compliant people.
>>566147Well we dont necessarily have to lift them up you know. At most bringing the whole of the planet up to late medieval would do.As far as uplifting the planet tho, you couldnt go to say 10th century europe and turn it into a space faring industrial culture in a few years, it would be madness

Unsurprisingly she requests to go back to her quarters relatively early, telling you how exhausting her day is, and that maybe you should just be friends after all....You get a response from her father, who is thankful that his daughter is safe, implying heavily in his message that Isabella has been a problem child in the past....It seems she was betrothed to a governor of a civilized world in a neighboring sector over twice her age....You find out he is sending an escort craft to pick her up and bring the family yacht back home....He is very influential and is willing to grant you a boon....A.

You actually a feel a little bad, as you open the door to her quarters with several of her family's armsmen in tow. It doesn't take her long to figure out what happened, she cries and hits you before storming out, under the close watch of her guards...You have her things quickly packed as she is sent home back to her betrothed...The alliance you have gained with House Tarvayen should prove useful if we ever have to defend ourselves independently from a threat....You train Tarquin and read the Treatises from several Sky Knights, including forming an elite infantry regiment, specialized in melee fighting, the author goes into detail, theorizing about the application of airpower and gravchutes....You are alerted to a contact entering the system.... A small inquisition monitor ship, moving at maximum speed. Rapid encrypted vox chatter is picked up between the ship and the Inquisition outpost...They report that a neighboring system is being raided by a chaos warband, in a Hellbringer class cruiser, the Blood Rain....Shortly afterwards, Lord Inquisitor, escorted by Inquisition stormtroopers limps into the command center telling you he is assuming command of the systems defenses...He places the PDF on alert, and the Redline in a defensive stance near Tarkon IV, he has 2 Inquistion corvettes lie in wait in low orbit of the planet...Less than 2 hours pass before the Chaos warship emerges from the warp, emitting horrfiying screams of tortured people as it barrels towards our planet....The Chaos cruiser, attempting to avoid our station has come around to the farside of the planet and has not detected the Inquisition ships yet....Roll a d100 to determine the success of the battle in space, ill take the average of the first 3 rolls....

But keep them hiddenAlso can we do a separate roll for our planetside defenses since you only mentioned we failed with our space station ones?
>>567841>C. Other(Write-in)If I may propose a radical option, set the station to self-destruct and made a drop to the surface with our droptroopers and all available landers. There is little chance to hold the station but we can deny it to the enemy, kill their boarding teams and move more of our forces to the real battleground in the surface.
>>567909I don't think we're that bad off yet. Good suggestion if the battle goes sour.

>>567988We have 1000 men on board. We will be ok
>>567988And we out-number them 1k men against at best 300? Space marines, in a starship we know. With PLASMA weapons handed out like candy.

>>567988Yeah but we've got plasma weapons everywhere, a fair bit of power swords, our own elite bodyguard a Lord Inquisitor and whatever retinue he has with him plus crew. We stand a bit of a chance being on defense.

>>568158>>568154>>568152average of 35 a failure....The first Terminator turns the corner, armed with a storm bolter and power fist...He raises his storm bolter but is quickly brought down by a burst of autocannon fire, shredding his armor, blowing the chaos terminators, right arm and torso clean off...Seeing this a second terminator, leans around the corner, and opens up on our autocannon team, with a autocannon burst of his own, turning the jungle rangers into a pink mist...Your men open fire on the terminator, but he quickly takes cover again...Another terminator armed with lightning claws and a storm bolter, peers around, throwing a grenade an amazing 300 feet with almost perfect accuracy, landing in the middle of your men...You yell "down!" as you hit the deck....You cover behind a bulkhead as a muffled explosion is heard... It seems the droptrooper jumped on it, saving our lives at the expense of his own...Taking advantage of your reaction from the grenade, the terminator squad has moved up, only being a few feet away now...You and the rest of the troops pour fire into the terminators as they approach, but they move quickly, being lead by some sort of chaos champion, with a lightning claw and another terminator with a massive power axe...The assault is brutal, as you see a jungle ranger get run through with the lightning claws and another man get cleaved in two by the power axe...Your bodyguards move to protect you as you shoot the lead terminator with your bolt pistol, its rounds deflecting off his armor harmlessly...The Terminators are so close now, theyve engaged your bodyguards in close combat, cutting down to of your Serathi guards with ease...With a look, you several of them activating their combat drugs and entering into close combat.The rest of your men continue firing their plasma rifles into the terminators downing 2 of them...Gandron using his agility and taking advantage of the terminators bulk, dodges a blow from the power axe and rolls behind his opponent, slicing the terminators arm clean off with a mighty drug fueled blow with power sword. The rest of your men easily finish off the crippled terminator, when you see Gandron, fail to dodge and get run through by the Chaos champion...You look to see the rest of the droptroopers still firing into the terminators, dropping another of their number before being ground into hamburger by a burst of autocannon fire...Landuin grabs you and forces you to fall back....A half dozen of your guards form a rearguard as the survivors fall back, only numbering 10 men, although you started with over 30...Leaving you see 6 dead terminators... Its a start...Alright guys, Im gonna have to leave you on a note of suspense tonight!We will get back to it tomorrow, where I should be able to run all nightThanks for playing!

>>568414>Thanks for playing!Thanks for running!
>>568414>Tfw named char's die>Feelsbad.jpgthanks for the posts today Shmeh.
>>568414>Our bodyguards, some of the most elite fighters on the planet slaughtered like dogs in an instant...We will remember this taste of defeat, and return it in kind tenfold never to experience it again.
>>568595They are fighting corrupted space marines (hundreds of years old), who have been bestowed by the Chaos gods with gifts...they are also in Terminator armour, which is basically the best armour known to the Imperium.The fact that we killed 6 is a miracle!
>>568618it is a miracle that we killed 6 chaos space marines.I hope the inquisition doesn't give us the Armageddon treatment, we spin it so they where mutants that robbed the sons of the emperors of great equipment and perverted it, the duty of the emperors faithful is to purge the corruption taking place no matter the cost.
We should call up our on space marines up from planet, if we haven't already, and if they can get here in time.
>>569306Landers deployed, So we have an issue. They are most likely fighting them now.
>>569382We can lose the station, its pretty hard to lose the planet with millions and tons of PDF. They just don't have the numbers. Plus they may be able to fire on the planet and bombard it if they take over the station.
>>569471No we can't, This station is everything we own and control in space. We lose this, we pretty much lose control of space control
>>566793>anons complained about the quest being too easy>they apparently thought that Necron fleet invasion, Waaaargh, and some Dark Eldar, as well as rumours of heresy and chaos worshipers wasn't enough>lo and behold our powerful Inquisition people are getting roasted.fucking anons.
>>569823I know right? It's hilarious. The only reason things have been "easy" is due to our lucky rolls. Welp, it's time to visit the other side of that it seems. Literal chaos space marines on our planet and in our station. In terminator armour.
>>569823>>569835Hey, at least it's not raining yet.
>>568618To be fair, Chaos Marines are generally speaking inferior to their loyalist counterparts if they are not from the original legions because their gene seed is too corrupt to make genuine marines and therefore they end up just sticking regular dudes in power armor who then after sufficient mutations may get to join a warband.
>>569877Original legions do not tend to accept new applicants except if they are corrupted from loyalists
>>569877These could be original legionnaires though, the OP hasn't said...and honestly, we probably wouldn't know IC.
>>568414Seriously tho Shmeh, pastebin
It's a shame that chaos worshippers taint their gear. Would have been awesome to get our hands on some Termie armor.
Oh shit chaos terminators. I feel some name character deaths incoming.Great jobs aswell shmeh. This was the first thread i read on /qst/ and you got me hooked
>>570045It can be reclaimed, it just needs to be disassembled and reforged from base materials. It's a massive pain in the ass but it can be done.
Is there a way we could just seal off a section of the space station and vent it to space? I know the attacking space marines will be fine without oxygen but the sudden decompression might blow them out into open space and away from us.
>>570422Unlikely, considering the suits they are wearing weigh far too much for such forces to realistically effect them. Especially considering their original purpose as EVA/ dangerous maintenance / hazmat gear during the DAOT. They probably have magnetic soles and shit.
>>570680We could turn off the gravity in the sections, but odds are they can just grab onto something and wait for all the air to rush out. In the end, it'd only end up favoring them, since our units can't go and attack or move through those areas without space suits, effectively making them secured against us.
We might want to get ahold of meltaguns for future terminator incursions. Just don't miss with them on a space station.
>>570782A bit of a wasted effort. If we make this station too tough to beat they'll just kill us without boarding.A more effective expenditure would be adding more offensive weapons to the actual station or investing in expanding our fleet. Hell even expanding economically would be more useful since the sector fleet might come to assist us if we are important enough.
What year is it now?Because it takes at least a few years for Knightly Orders to develop properly, and education and study isn't an immediate or quick thing.Also, shoutout to Shmeh for making the people complaining about difficulty get fucked in the ass.
>>570782What about a couple of murder-servitor squads?
>>571032Focusing on a fleet for now is more important considering power projection and all.>>571061>Also, shoutout to Shmeh for making the people complaining about difficulty get fucked in the ass.More difficulty more fun
>>571097yeah, also when we get our ass handed to us we then know what to focus upon.And being attacked heavily means that we can credibly ask for assistance or even that we change our jurisdiction from being a tithing planet to being a defensive support planet where all our tithes are actually just used within the segment.
>>571061I have no idea, I'm seeing us move at about 2 months per post he makes roughly, but the passage of time is all messed up, its inconsistent, almost as if we are trapped in a warp time bubble.....
>>571097Our fleet is important but static defenses are more important right now. Like our cruiser right now our fleet can be call away or be on a mission elsewhere.
>>571032That's the point. If the Station is tough enough that it cannot be taken by boarding, then it's done it's job. The best part about a space station is that you can just keep expanding it since you don't need to worry about warp capabilities or moving in the system. Besides, you can always just get more ships or teleporter arrays to the space station if you fear enemy fleets.
>>571875They didn't board the station because they thought it was easy to take, their ship got blown up and they jumped out in pods, some went to the planet, others hit the station.
>>570419I thought the only way to reclaim equipment was to subject the said piece of wargear to a meticulous amounts of Anti-Psyker scrubbing. There's also a whole lot of rituals about consecrating the wargear as well as it is with all things in imperium, but I think the Inquisition is really the only faction with any capabilities of purging chaos taint from wargear. If you could get a bucket of Emperor's tears, that would do the trick.
>>571875>>571032I just hope we eventually get our own Governor's palace/fortress. With bitching void shields and Defence Lasers.
>>568414You see your bodyguards charge the terminators as your turn the corner down the hallway, when you are struck by a burning sensation in your leg....It takes your a moment to realize you have been dazed from a near miss from an autocannon shell, shredding apart the Jungle Ranger running beside you...You are still hazy when Landuin and another bodyguard grab you and help support your bad leg as you fall back to the next checkpoint...It seems like an eternity of walking before you reach it, finding 2 squads of droptroopers holding a makeshift barricade...A chirugeon looks at your leg and tells you need first aid, as its bleeding badly....What do you do?A.

I really hope all the rolls aren't "50 is average". That totally disregards any intelligent play, any training and equipment bonuses, it's all the roll."I roll to kick a hole in the terminator armor. I have bare feet, cause I'm in my bathrobe", "roll for it", "91", "you punch a hole in the chest armor, squishing their heart like a grape...", "woo hoo! Next, con the Lord Inquisition out of a..."

>>573155>>573151>>573131average of 52, another very average roll(remember this is average for people fighting chaos terminators in a tight spacestation hallway)The Chaos terminator champion, moves forward at a speed almost unthinkable for such a heavily armored warrior, cutting down 2 men with his lightning claws with ease, unleashing an inhuman yell...He clearly has his sights set on killing you, identifying you as the leader...Landuin and your Serathi guards activate their weapons and drugs and go to engage the terminators in melee...The droptroopers stand diciplined but are cut down none the less, nearly all of them falling to the terminators in close combat, only able to slay one of the dark warriors....You bodyguards face off against the terminators... As you and a few stormtrooper guards fire from behind, narrowly surviving a near miss from the enemy autocannon...Landuin and your 5 other surviving Serathi guards team up against a terminator that has rushed to try to kill you...Through teamwork they bring him down, ducking and dodging around the terminator with their chain swords and in an innovative and risky moving, passing the power sword the one, weapon that can slay the terminator between the warriors in a lightning fast exchange, too fast for the bulky terminator to respond to. One by one they are slain by his storm bolter or his massive chainaxe, Landuin is cut down just after passing his sword to another warrior who is able to impale the terminator as Landuin is brutally cut in half... The last warrior is slain by the Chaos Champion, as he yells in anger at the loss of another veteran of the long war... Another terminator down, at the cost of all of their lives....You barely outrun the terminators as you are grabbed by your last 2 stormtrooper bodyguards who force you to flee as you see the last of the droptroopers get brutalized by the Chaos champion...You limp down the hallway as your last 2 bodyguards execute a fighting retreat, shooting back at the terminators as you run down the hallway...You finally reach another checkpoint, almost passing out as running has opened up your wound, and the painkillers start to wear off...The last thing you see as your vision starts to dim is Gideon hoisting his lascannon, and 2 squads of droptroopers behind him take position at the checkpoint with the rest of the men there....You force the Chirugeon to hit you with Frenzon as you are brought to the medical bay... You are immediately filled with energy and alertness, briefly considering jumping off the stretcher and rejoining battle... Pulling up the battle on the pictographs and listening on vox communications....Apparently inquisition forces have dealt with one of the boarding parties.... While a regular chaos marine party and the terminators have been cutting a bloody swath through the defenders....You cut to Gideon and his men engaging the terminators...Roll a d100+10 to determine the outcome of their battle

>>573304>>573309>>573320average of 45.6 a minor failure...You watch as Gideon trades fire with the autocannon terminator, hiding behind a barricade, waiting until the terminator is exposed...The autocannon rips into 2 droptroopers behind a barricade, turning them into pink mist... Only for Gideon to respond with his lascannon, destroying the autocannon and blowing the terminators arm and shoulder clean off...The rest of the men trade fire with the terminators as the remaining 3 rush the defenders, they move with impressive speed, dodging Gideons second shot, with the Champion challenging him in single combat...Gideon drops his lascannon, and activates his power sword, yelling "Traitor!" as he charges the chaos champion, as the rest of the men fight and die around him in close combat with the other two terminators....Keeping his distance from the champion, Gideon uses his superior reach to try to maintain an advantage, but seeing his men losing to the terminators he is forced to close with the Champion, narrowly dodging a slash that rends his right pauldron...Gideon is able to duck another slash, getting inside the Champions guard and impaling him with the power sword....The Champion seems to laugh, despite the blood spilling out of his chest, as he swipes unnaturally fast, severing the head of the wayward Dark Angel...Enraged by the death of their leader, several droptroopers charge the mortally wounded champion, firing several plasma shots into his body at point blank range....Another dozen droptroopers fall before 2 more squads arrive, gunning down the 2 remaining terminators, just before they maul the few surviving troops at the checkpoint....With that the other chaos marine party has been stopped as well, by a joint group of Inqusition troops and our own at the cost of 100 men...Overall almost 150 men were lost to the terminators, despite arming ourselves for the occasion and preparing defenses...The Inquistion did not disclose their methods or losses to us on the other group and have confiscated the pictographs of the chaos marine incursion of the station...The battle now turns to the surface....Alright guys thats all I got for tonight, I didnt get as much time as I wouldve liked, but we will do a lot this weekend.Thanks for playing!
>Gideon deadDude. Just...dude.While I like a serious campaign where dumb play means people die, we need to build a better roll mechanic. We're getting fucked by this "average of 3" one.

>>573422Always remember Anon, Its EASY MODE.
>>573428Well, I think it might feel that way since there aren't really anything like sessions and the quest goes several days without any real conflict and it seems like there aren't any obstacles.
>>573438I don't understand why people think its easy, we've just be picking up good shit whenever we could. Had not none of our current shit we'd be super fucked.
>>573449I blame everything on lack of order and organization.
>>573458I blame everything on the fucking rolls, and STILL NO GOD DAMN PASTE-BIN. Now we're down an amazing fucking DA Crusader trainner, With 2 more most likely going to die planet side. Not sure why he wasn't in armor as well. Unless he wasn't the DA guy.
>>570419Actually reforging isn't required its just a very long and slow process to remove chaos taint.Its possible just a real pain in the ass and takes long while.So generally the treatment is reserved for that which is especially rare and valuable(while the rest is destroyed completely and utterly).>>571919You basically(literally) have to scrub, rebless, and consecrate it. EVERY LAST PIECE/BLEMISH without missing a single spot!The only factions capable of removing chaos taint in the imperium is eccelscharchy and the Inquisition actually. Eccelscharchy will do it for anyone so long as its A stored properly B given a big enough reason/bribe to.Rogue Traders and navy do it all the time for ships. As generally the time it takes to remove the chaos taint from one is generally a bit shorter or as long as building a new one. Except less materials.There is no removing chaos taint from an object that is literally made of nothing but daemons though.
>>573389>>573409>>573466We should probably look into having the QM give us bonuses to our d100 rolls based on good or relevant decisions we have made up to that point; i.e., having a bunch of armour/weapons should give us a bonus to a fight, having a bunch of industry should give us bonus to production, our complete lack of X or Y might give us a minus, etc.
>>573438It’s not to your edgy grimderp tastes.>>573466You could help us all out and make one for the quest, and have the QM post it with every new thread. I don't know how to make a pastebin, good chance a new QM doesn't either.Of course we'd need up to date stats and records to make one properly.>>573389>>573409>>573622I don't know how the current system works and what bonuses we have but here is what Qm should do, aside from passive modifiers for our troops like training and equipment, such as making good sound decisions should lower the dice roll requirements.While being prepared and using good troops should net passive boons/bonuses-using trained troops>such as storm troopers and Jungle fighters for appropriate situations.-having good position>(high ground or choke-point)-deployment>(send them here so they don't get blown away by artillery or a erupting volcano or attacking from behind or above)While making sound decisions and putting forth write-ins should lower the requirements of the dice roll.
>>573168>>Quit your bitching, this is still easymodeFuck off anon, I wasn't bitching, I'm enjoying the chaos space marine attack. I simply thought it was funny that after all the complaints of "it's too easy" this happened. It was a poetic justice.

Brutal session.>>573833>>573622>>573409>>573389I assume Shmeh is taking our preps and the situation into account behind the scenes guys, i.e. rolling 80 in a battle between our expertly-drilled, carapace-armoured veteran stormtroopers and some rebelling local tribes with a bunch of sharp sticks means something completely different to the same troops rolling 80 in a battle vs 10,000 year old superhuman veteran of endless war coursing with eldritch energies and wearing armour that turns them into walking tanks.I'd even assume rolling 20 in the first scenario would lead to fewer casualties than rolling 80 in the second. Maybe I'm wrong though.>>573449It's the fact that we've been able to pick up that good shit in the first place that makes it easy.>5 baneblades>10,000 plasma guns>A fucking cruiserIn 40k these are all incredibly rare artifacts of a long-lost age, only understood let alone produced by a handful of planets in the entire galaxy. Even space marines consider plasma guns uncommon and most cruisers and passed down through generations, we're the governor of some minor backwoods feudal world and we've puchased these with a few shipments of basic commodities. But hey, I'm still loving the quest, it just has more of a Monty Haul style than I reckon 40k should.>>573466>Not sure why he wasn't in armor as wellHave you ever seen a SM sergeant where a helmet?Seriously though, the weapons of chaos terminators would carve through power armour like butter.>>573904>Best 2 of 3God, like we need it to be easier.
>>573999>Re: rollsI'm not. It's the lack of transparency that bugs me. I referred to Black Company Quest earlier - you could see VERY well the results of all the rolls, how the decision was reached, and what you could do about it. Named characters took hits there too, but nobody complained, cause they saw where it was from. Also, for an "average of three" d100, it feels like we get fucked because when you roll enough (in theory) you get about 50. We're supposed to be the hero.It's true this thing is a little easy, but that's only in terms of loot. I'd rather have lower tech loot, and 2 of 3 for rolls.
Are we capable of making Luna class ships?Because I am reading the Rogue Trader Core Rulebook and it says that Luna class are surprisingly simple to make and many worlds far from the Imperial centers are capable of making them whilst pretty much any other ship of similar quality is vastly more difficult.So Luna's should probably be being produced much more than they are.And don't we need Navigators and the other Warp specialist type of guy for basic warp travel?>>574013yeah, especially when we are taking such a front-on approach and helping way more than we are expected to. I hope that our Inquisitor friend gives us some proper assistance. Like no tithes for a decade or something would be nice.
>>574029>Are we capable of making Luna class ships?At current we can make escorts, takes 3 months to make.
>>574033pretty sure that's too fast, but I am NOT fucking complaining.Proper kilometer long ships take centuries to make, but I rebuke that in the name of the Emprah and say it only takes a decade in a backwater planet of 10 million people.
>>574037>The ship Lord Daros was built in orbit of the Feral World of Unloth. For eleven years its inhabitants mined and smelted ores to be presented to the "sky temples." Their perseverance was rewarded with the birth of a new star in the heavens, which left to join its brothers in the cosmos. This "new star" was the Lord Daros's plasma wake, as it left the system to join its fleet.[1b]http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Lunar_CruiserI really don't know much about 40k shipbuilding/navy, but there it is
>>574046yeah, lunars are fortunately unique in their relative cheapness and ease of manufactory.
>>573359This seems a little harsh for a minor failure on a 45.6, but it is the last in a long string of mediocre and poor rolls.
>>574268A minor failure against fucking chaos terminators though. Those things will fuck your shit up even if you win
>>573168To be fair, when it comes to Rogue Traders, regular Wh40k logic flies out of the window. When a Rogue Trader starts shipping you Baneblades and Plasma guns, there's two possibilities. Possibility 1. This Rogue Trader is somehow stealing weapons from the Imperium without them knowing through clever use of his connections. Possibility 2. He's selling bootleg arms and equipment that he's manufacturing on a forge world that's ran by his own personal magos on a fringe system that constantly performs tech heresy.
>>574037Escort ships have the advantage that they are not warp capable, which means that all the warp related stuff is just not needed in those ships. There's no need for gellar fields, warp cores or anything like that.
>>574322Number 2 would be a great quest, do crazy experiments, try not to get caught, open portals to the webway, make space marines, bootleg titans then turn up to a primitive world and drop it all there to get 'discovered' for shits and giggles.
>>574335As far as system ships go it looks like we should invest in a flotilla of monitorshttp://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Defence_Monitor
>>574322yeah, it has occurred to me from reading RT Core Rulebook that a rogue trader can break the law so fucking hard and secretly without being punished for it even if rumours came out.They could visit the Tau systems and pick up colonists and technology then go to the Koronus Expanse and drop them off there for closer allies and start up tech factories to make sure that the best tech is where it's needed.The tau, after all, have their most basic weapon being much superior to LasWeapons. They have a plasma rifle in each squad and superior power armour.
>>575029Eh, to be fair the Tau technology consumes a lot more resources to produce and maintain than any of their Imperial counterparts. Anything made with an intact STC is practically as cheap to make as it is physically possible.Also, Plasma weapons do require ammunition unlike Las weapons, so unless they can get access to the fuel materials to produce the plasma shot and the gasses that they need to cool the weapon on the planet itself, they're reliant on supply lines. Their battlesuits aren't also really comparable to the power armor that space marines use, seeing that practically speaking the battlesuits the Tau use are pretty much their equivalent of armoured fighting vehicles in their purpose and the role they serve, where as the Space Marines are just infantry.
>>575029Technically speaking, outside the borders of Imperium a Rogue Trader holds almost as much authority to act as he pleases as an Inquisitor does. However, if you're not in the fringe systems, things are a great bit different since there's a fuckload more inquisitors that will probably put you on their shitlist if you try to sell xenotech or some shit. Rogue Trader still would get away scott free from whinging of the other Imperial authorities though. Like if an Inqusitor doesn't care that a rogue trader is taking slaves from your planet and shipping them into his mining world, there's not a whole lot more you can do about it.
I hope OP comes back today :) is it friday in the states? saturday here.
>>581349Where are you?
>>581349Maybe he's reworking the system he uses, from all the feedback in the thread?After all this was basically what happened to us.
>tfw the weekend>tfw no planetary governanceCould do for a twitter to keep us informed on hours
I wonder do all of our named characters need to die? Could we in theory find them just horribly wounded, and put them in emergency care? Even for Gideon couldn't we simply say that we were mistaken that we saw him get decapitated, and only has a bad gash on his neck, and passed out? After all a MINOR failure shouldn't really result in a death of a character like that, wounded yes, but not death.
>>583535Even if he is dead we should all agree to make a rule better 1 million die then one space marine. That way QM can't just kill them off.Anyone agree with trying to get the marines to expand their numbers?
>>583535Deads dead my man. But yeah, it really does seem excessive to lose that many named chars.>>583678>Anyone agree with trying to get the marines to expand their numbers?That there heresy ain't much welcome round these parts
>>583729What heresy? Are they not the last of their order? Can they not then expand?
>>583761They are a pre-Horus Heresy chapter with oldthink beliefs in regards to the Emperor being just a man who absolutely did not wish to be worshiped. This would be interpreted as incredibly heretical by the modern Ecclesiarchy and Inquisition.
>>583827Still, what is the difference between 2 and 10? Spread them out with our big I buddy, and they cant grow fast anyway. Doesn't it take many years to become one?
>>573359Down on the surface of Tarkon IV, the battle rages....Fortunately most of our men were doing military exercises when the battle started, and while they are spread out, they took minimal casualties when the enemy drop pods landed in our military base, disgorging dozens of chaos space marines and killing several hundred men and destroying dozens of vehicles...In the sourthern jungle, shuttles filled with chaos cultists, led by a handful of space marines have also landed near our mining base, seem to be moving to attack it.....The mining base, due its relative isolation and general lack of defenses, only has a handful of jungle rangers protecting it, mainly to scare off any dangerous animals that wander into the camp...Zachias and several hundred valkyrie born Jungle Rangers make their way to the mining camp, wihle Reynaldo and Masson lead their regiments in a counter attack against the marines occupying the base...Roll a d100 to determine the success of the counter attack....

Continue to the mining encampment, prepare to hold thereB. Attempt to find the heretics and launch an attack run, following up with deploying the rangers and launching a ground assaultC.

>>584454>>584567>>584569Ill count the 81, since that guy didnt technically vote average of 44 a minor failure....Zachias goes on the vox, ordering the Valkyries to circle back, and attempt to rescue the survivors from the downed valkyrie...Unfortunately the nearest clearing is almost 2 miles from the crash site....Zachias and the men drop off in waves, altogether almost 300 troopers....The troopers fall into a loose formation, with a smaller group of veterans taking point, to sniff out ambushes and flankers before they attack the main group....The Valkyries are waved off and ordered to serve as light air support. They armed with multi-lasers or lascannons, although at least one is using an unoffical modification, mounting heavy flamers instead of its lascannons.Each aircraft possess heavy bolters on either side of the troop bays, allowing door gunners to suppress enemy troops....The men slowly slog forward through the brutal terrain, wiping sweat from their faces, as the sweltering heat bears down on them, even through the thick jungle canopy....It takes almost 30 minutes to get to the crash site, due to the rough terrain and indirect route taken....When you arrive you find a sergeant has taken command of the survivors, and has the wounded under the shelter of the wreck, while the handful of healthy troopers form a perimeter... He has had the two heavy bolters removed from their mountings and has them positioned with crews in good cover near the craft....It seemed like mere moments after they reconnected with the survivors, the attack began...The canopy lights up from the burst of an autocannon tearing through an unlucky ranger on the edge of the perimeter....The men quickly spread out, finding cover in the jungle around the crash site, but there is confusion and a lack of coordination....In addition to the autocannon team, we are taking fire from what appears to be several squads of cultists armed with lasguns and autoguns....Fire is exchanged with the cultists for several minutes, the cultists clearly experienced fighters as well, adeptly use the jungle brush as cover...The fighting is savage with infantry on neither side willing to break cover, against the heavy weapons suppressing them...Many of our men when a massive cultist wielding a grenade launcher begins targeting men hiding behind cover, killing dozens of men, before shot dead at long range by Zachias with his mastercrafted bolter....The firefight lasts another 10 minutes, killing another 20 of our men before a squad is able to flank and eliminate the enemy autocannon team....The remaining cultists are surrounded and slain to a man.....We have now lost 50 men out of the 300 we started with and have not even completed our objective yet as terrified voices come over the vox of Chaos marines spotted near the mining camp.....The camp is 10 miles away, and will likely take 3-4 hours to reach on foot.... We could also risk boarding the Valkyries.
>>585104With the terror coming from the vox operators on the vox, comes on another voice...Lord Inquisitor Corean states that control of the station is secure and that they are on standby to provide orbital bombardment support....What should we do?A. Board the Valkyries again, rush to defend the mining campB. Push forward on foot, have the Valkyries wait until we get there to provide air supportC. Push forward on foot, have the Valkyries harrass them from the air until we arrive...D. Other(Write-in)E. Optional, can be taken with other options, the station has identified a squad of chaos space marines gathering in a clearing near the mining camp.... Please roll a d100 to determine the accuracy of the bombardment
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>585137D. Other(Write-in)Have the orbital bombardment cut a path from the crash site to the mining camp. Walk the shots from where the downed Valkyrie is, to the camp like the creeping barrages of WW1.Our men can easily run a clear path to the mining camp in less than half an hour if they huff it, and let the other Valkyrie carry the wounded.Call for the men to seal themselves inside the mine with the tools, so the CSM can't get to them without some work. Make sure to not leave any blasting equipment outside, but leave some of the simple tools for us to us, but won't be fast enough for the heretics to get to them before we reach the camp.Rolling anyways.
Rolled 59 (1d100)>>585187Supporting
>>585187I'll agree with this, but adding that we should supply Valk air support for the mining complex, they might be able to hold out a bit longer then.
>>585338Well the valks are evacuating our wounded so they don't slow us down, we could have them circle around, but they have anti air missiles so it could very well get shot down.I think telling the miners to seal themselves into the mine will buy us more time than sending wounded men into the fray, unless you want to leave them alone at the crash site.>The remaining cultists are surrounded and slain to a manWe could leave them back at the crash site and switch the wounded out with able bodied guys. What can 1 cultist remaining really do anyways, assuming we got the rest of them. It sounds like hes our POW anyways.
>>585187>>585322>>585338>>585388average of 52, an average outcomeThe orbital bombardment is somewhat successfully, walked to the mining encampment, with several shots going off course, creating a zig zagging path, and one accidently destroying a building holding mining equipment on the edge of the mining camp....Meanwhile the miners have been ordered to seal themselves in the mines until further notice....The rest of the men rapidly push forward, through what theyve nicknamed Coreans higway, cutting through the flattened terrain with ease....Along the way the find what looks to be the remains of a cultist ambush force, with the twisted melted barrel of an old autocannon being seen, as well as the parts of several heavily tatooed corpses...It takes a little over an hour to reach the outside of the encampment and the CSM are nowhere to be found....One of the men taking point, going building to building, is jumped by a chaos marine, wielding dual chainswords and is quickly gutted....A moment later, several Chaos marines with jump packs and melee weapons attack your force, with another few with bolters firing out of the windows of nearby buildings...Finally from the rooftop of a building the chatter of a heavy bolter opens up, pinning 2 squads into cover, as they are rushed by the chaos assault marines....Roll d100s to determine the result(average of 3)
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>585526>Roll d100s to determine the result(average of 3)so average of the first 3 rolls?Unacceptable, we walked into an ambush with our main force without proper screening?We need to get fire superiority over them and fight through the ambush, its the only way to get out of it the situation. Fight our way out of the camp, then surround it. once we've done that make a contact line (treeline), and a red line 10 meters back. Nothing crosses the red line alive. Call Corean to level the camp, while we hold a perimeter from the tree line.Level all the buildings, and concentrations of CSM. Buildings take priority, we eliminate their cover and they will be forced to run for the trees where we are, or get shot up from every direction and hit with orbital bombardments and whatever heavy weapons, grenades and such that we have.

It would be interesting if we got any bonuses like +5 for having veteran troops, or equipment. Maybe bonuses for also doing something previously, like if we were able to move our forces in an ambush successfully for instance that would give us a bonus for the the resulting battle, or subtract from the enemy.Another thing that would be interesting would be to see if we knew what we had to roll.40 or under would be easy for successful action41-80 would be medium for successful action81-100 for a success of a hard action etc.This way we at least know what we need.
>>596945Ease up, we'll slowly work out the system along the way. Last thing we need is to cause the QM feel like running the quest is a chore.
ded board ded quest
>>596945The thing is, that it takes multiple years for someone to become particularly skilled.2016 Marines released from training do so after quite a few years, after getting through a bunch of other basic stuff.It should take us about 15 years for any sort of military tradition to come through significantly.Though to be fair, we do have our small population of medieval tech dudes who probably have had their share of fighting among each other.It will also take at least 60 years for heavy literary and technological traditions to occur naturally as things are assimilated with the natives.Shit's gonna take a while.
Hey guys, a question - where in the lore is alien technology forbidden? I know its law 9 of the sixteen universal laws, and arguably 13 and 16 also, but where was it first set out? I'ts just taken for granted that "alien tech BAAAAD",
>>597157It is stated in many areas but can be blamed mostly on the mechanius, inquisition, eclesiarchy and such.The mechanius believe that mankind had the most perfect, advanced and holy tech in existence at their peak. This means that if you suggest that something can be learned from studying alien tech they'll generally kill you for tech heresy. It should be noted that much of the higher ranks are either reverently in belief to this or know it is bullshit and are trying to advance mankind. They however both agree, that other people outside of the mechanius would result in bad shit for them.The inquisition dislike people using alien shit or working with aliens since it is either borderline or outright heresy depending on the inquisitor. They however do make use of that shit sometimes but again, fighting fire with fire is their whole idea.The eclesiarchy hate aliens, like holy-shit-what-in-the-hell-did-they-do-to-you hatred. They believe that they are inherently toxic and various other things. Thus if you are found to be studying such tech, they will eliminate you with fury reserved for furries by most people.There are various other minor institutions who have problems with it but yeah generally the reasons for not doing are heresy, tech-heresy and such.
>>597433Right, but what the source in the lore? Not counting novels.
>>597071You might be right.... Anyone want to qm a new pg quest?
>>597849Thinking about it. It'd be different, tho. A shit-ton more mechanics, and I'd want to run it in a way that you not only build up stuff and decide how "your" world is ran, but you'd also be there for a lot of the pivotal moments. Imagine an inquisitor showing up bearing news of an ancient chaos site showing up on your moon, and your miners have just tapped into it. He borrows some of your troops...your best, your bodyguard. You are there with your men. Yeah, it doesn't make a lot of sense, but I think it'd be cool. What are you guys looking for in a PGQ?
>>598366>>597849Not cool anons, this quest isn't dead. Op posted only a day ago. If you want to run your own quest thats fine, but take the Q and A bullshit to the general thread, don't rudely shit up this one. Also this right here >>597071 is a troll, don't feed them for fuck sake.
>>598366https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Quest:Planetary_Governor_Questhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19679873/http://pastebin.com/Kuifa81dThe guy ran 2 planetary governor quests, one in a 40k setting, the other was like a space western. It was a fun read but the guy made some mistakes he highlighted in the pastebin, but i enjoyed the detailed economy and management choices, and seeing their effect clearly later on.Now with that said>>597071>>597849What are you guys going on about? Shmeh doesn't post for a whole day and you assume the worst?Unless you guys mean the new rule I just saw on /tg/ yesterday. Fuckers want to kill quests....
>>599082Yo anon, what was the new rule? I can't see anything
>>599101Its the second sticky on the first page"Please post all quest threads on /qst/ >>>/qst/ Quest threads that are posted on /tg/ will be removed."
Welp, that settles it. Our inquisitior is definately a radical to a certain degree at least. I don't think anyone can question our actions in attempting to expand our military power now. We would have lost the planet if not for our rampant militarization.
>>599116Oh right, I thought you meant they'd added another thing on top of that.
>>599139Yeah, I worded it a bit sloppily, I should have clarified I saw it only yesterday. Apparently it was posted about a week ago?
>>597686Well, the rogue trader books for one should state that Xenotech is super illegal for anyone who is not operating on inquisitorial authority or has a warrant of trade.
>>599074Q&A matters. I'm wondering how hard it would be to start getting alien weapons to fight Chaos with next time. The Eldar might give us an edge.
>>599278Q&A does matter but I think it's a bit of a dick move to do Q&A for an independent thread in someones quest thread. The conversation can be moved to qtg
>>599349>>599074I agree. Lets make a qst general thread and we can talk there.
