Shit has gone down in a rather short amount of time for us. First off we now have a time limit to root out the demon in charge of the cultists on this planet and we know she won't come quietly. Second we have some Eldar dick by the name of Eldrad who wants to meet us and wont take no for an answer. Finally Thera is back from her forced vacation in the warp and currently is eluding us.All of this is just icing on the shit cake we have for ourselves as when we decided to wake up the emperor for a second we kinda alerted not just the blue bird to us but all the other chaos gods.Welcome to Guardsman Quest.
alright quick and dirty, this quest is not for die hard lovers of cannon since fun and shenanigans beat cannon for the most part. Though I will accept info about the warhammer 40k universe general rule of thumb is fun is king hereHere is the link to the Doc archive https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N6DV3ou3h5MO0TZi61pc9jGoMBA4p3S4fJ0rCI6qooM/edit?usp=sharinghere is a link to the character's stats https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VEdRRmqRN2wb661ea1Bz2iXQwqQl2JVgl1OdrmHk3Tk/edit?usp=sharing
(since we did not reach a conclusion on the votes for last option I will reiterate the post here)"alright Phe'nia you have my attention, what is it?""the farseer I told you about.... he wanted to meet you personally.""and tell me why should I care what an eldar wants, no offense.""because he is Ulthran, as in Eldrad Ulthran, the strongest Eldar psyker in existence. He can rip a god damned titan in half if he really wanted too.""so, I take it if he has directly addressed me then blowing him off for too long will lead to complications."You hear Phe'nia sigh again "I have never met him in person but there are stories.""how bad""he infected a planet with a slow-spreading gingivitis bacteria that will fester in the new race and slowly spread amongst their entire species, then a fuck ton of time later Tyrranids came and ate the planet. since the nids did not have any medicine to stop the spread the nids got infected. The pain was so great that the entire fleet stopped eating and then starved. the fleet's destination was Craftworld Ulthwé.""either this guy is the greatest strategist I have ever heard of or he is a complete dick.""both.""well damn, what was in the message?""Meet me at Craftworld Ulthwé within the next three human months or I will personally mail you a black hole. With the greatest regards, Farseer Ulthran. P.S. I have a lot of black holes I stole from Vect so do not be late.""by the emperor what is it with everyone who wants to meet me being some big shot with a lot of guns and/or psyker powers.""guess that is what happens when you have a piece of your emperor inside you.""is that all" you begin rubbing your temples great now you have a time limit or you get a really powerful and pissed off Eldar on your heels with black holes."that is all." you cut the vox channel and hold your head"why the fuck is this happening to me, I was a simple guardsman before all this. WHY!?""you alright?" Kali asks looking at the road as the vehicle begins to move"no but kicking this cult back to the warp should help."> find squad mates now, we need numbers and info on how to crush these assholes> time to get to work and see if you can get any info on the current cult activities in the city that you can ruin. (fel, per)> time to talk to the planetary governor and find out why she let a cult grow to this strength. seriously can these governors do anything right?> write-in
we have a vote for 4 which I will also post up so everyone can see what it was.>4 combo mode> time to talk to the planetary governor and find out why she let a cult grow to this strength. seriously can these governors do anything right?If this even gets close to 10% what it was i'm blowing up your plant, you attempt to flee I will have the Ordo hunt you down and leave you to the interrogators, if you hide on a planet ill crack it under your very feet for hiding you. I have agents on the world as you can guess some among the cultists if you are found to be aiding them, you die. If you are turning a blind eye? You die. Otherwise give me reason to believe you are not giving 110% to purge them quickly, what happens? You guessed it, you die!> find squad mates now, we need numbers and info on how to crush these assholesGather than main people whom are suspected traitors, hello everyone there is a traitor among us and as such i've decided we're going to work in threes so that no one is ever actually alone and if the traitor tries to fuck any of you you can gang up on them. Considering my other plan was to just unleash the Eversor in stasis I figure this is a fair compromise. Equally if anyone has anything they want to get off their chest before I have the Eldar here read your mind please feel free to share with the class.>Angry Guardsman.png
we need more than one vote to continue on this quest.

>>1856131I already suppoerted this in the last thread ya nonce
alright that did not show on last thread but I'll take your word for it, writing.
you sit up and look at Kali, "we are finding Mirasi and Terisa. Now." finally after all this time you feel quite a bit of that inquisitoral anger you should have as an inquisitor.Kali not even questioning why speeds up and begins driving you though the city. within minutes you drive up on Mirasi and Terisa, as well as ten guardsmen preforming an execution on what you take to be cultists "any last words?" Mirasi asks the cultistsone cultist tries to speak up before Mirasi signals the men to fire and the living cultists are soon reduced to corpses, she turns and sees you "Simun!"you get out of the car as Mirasi attempts to hug you, you dont let her. "Mirasi what has happened since I left""well, seems this planet's cultist infestation is deeper than what we though, after you blew up half a hab block the planet became a battleground. seems that the cultists decided to hit back and this has been the result." she gesture towards the dead bodies.you note her armor was far more worn than before, scratches and dirt mar the power armor's proud imperial colors and symbols.Terisa pulls at your arm and gives you a nod seemly trying to reassure you that the situation is not as dire at it looksyou pull out your vox and connect with the ship "alright phe'nia can you hear me?""yes simun.""link me to both our ships comm systems.""done."you clear your throat before begining "Captain Bern, Drauge, Akkaz, Clinks report to the bridge with Phe'nia. Now."you wait for a while before Phe'nia states through the vox "they are all here.""hello everyone there is a traitor among us and as such I've decided we're going to work in threes so that no one is ever actually alone and if the traitor tries to fuck any of you you can gang up on them. Considering my other plan was to just unleash the Eversor in stasis I figure this is a fair compromise. Equally if anyone has anything they want to get off their chest before I have the Eldar here read your mind please feel free to share with the class."there is a scilence before you hear Drauge's voice "a traitor? why have you not alerted us to this earlier.""[tactical advantage machine human, if the traitor does not know the inquisitor knows then it will be more sloppy with it's work. The Inquisitor must have reached a breakthrough on who is and now wishes to apply pressure.]""so den oose stickin' wif who?" you hear Akkaz ask before you respond"Drauge, Akkaz, and Clinks stick together. Bern you are to remain where Phe'nia can see you, after we return Mirasi will remain by your side until I say otherwise."You turn off your vox to leave no room for argument and get into the trasport, "take me to the planetary governor, we need to have a chat."a few hours of driving later you arrive at a massive building that both looks imposing and well fortified, windows and doors being fortified and armed turrets everywhere.(continued)
you walk up to the door "Inquisitor Simun has arrived now open the door or I will make it open."A minute passes before the door is opened by an elderly man "hello Inquisitor the Governor awaits you in her study."you push past the man and storm though the building before finding the study and almost breaking the door on the way in.a woman sits in the study pouring over mountains of paper signing and throwing away papers with the experienced speed of a planetary governor, her graying hair did nothing to hide her regal features and she looks up at you "Ah the inquisitor I have heard so much about, now what do you want.""what I want to know is how you let your planet reach this state!""you must understand inquisitor," she begins reading the papers again "is planet is outside most imperial protections and control, cults are nothing new here and this will be no different. we will crush them, it merely is a matter of time.""time is not something we have governor now let me make this clear, I have called an exterminatus before on a planet and I will not hesitate if it comes to that.""I have heard" the governor responds uncaringly"If this planet gets even close to 10% what that planet was I'm blowing up your plant, you attempt to flee I will have the Ordo hunt you down and leave you to the interrogators, if you hide on a planet I'll crack it under your very feet for hiding you. I have agents on the world as you can guess some among the cultists if you are found to be aiding them, you die. If you are turning a blind eye? You die. Otherwise give me reason to believe you are not giving 110% to purge them quickly, what happens? You guessed it, you die!" you roar at her, but she does not even flinch."if it is information you wanted I am going though the reports now. Inquisitor you must understand that though you feel like threats like should scare me it's just another Tuesday for me so stop with the posturing and the bluster so we can get to work."> alright calm down and lets look over the reports that she has, we did want information. (WP, INT)> alright even more anger, if she had that information why not share it earlier!> have Mirasi look over the reports and try to calm yourself down. you currently are in no state to read reports.> write-in
>>1859088>> have Mirasi look over the reports and try to calm yourself down. you currently are in no state to read reports.
*guy who looks out of place walks past holding some cup of recaff bolt-gun on his hip.* Cults? why the fuck do I keep getting the shit. *mumbles about something* If its a cult burn it with holy extermanatus.*walks off with recaff adjusting facemask never to be seen again unless looked for.* (also pick 2, I would be angry)
alright 15min for more votes then if we are still at a draw then RNGesus takes the wheel
Rolled 1 (1d2)alright 1 for >>1859211 and 2 for >>1859224
you grit your teeth and clench your hands, this governor's complete lack of respect or care for you and your threats pisses you off further than what you were but you hold out. "Mirasi look over the reports with her."Mirasi quickly rushes to the desk and begins reading with the governor.you on the other hand begin deep breathing, calming techniques you learned when learning how to use a sniper, in and out.eventually your anger abates a bit as your heart rate slows. you blink a few times and look at Mirasi "found anything useful?"the sister of battle looks up and gives you a smile "you have no idea.""how much.""tell me would you like to know how many bases there are and where? who leads each base? or where the target we want to kill currently resides?""can I take option four which is all of them.""sure, there are exactly eighty six cultist gathering sites, the leaders run by the names of pride, lust, wrath, envy, gluttony, and sloth. seriously cultists have no naming imagination. oh right and our target is in the 36th gathering point the one lust also is known to frequent.""how long until we can launch an assault."the governor responds to this one "I have planned an assault on those places in 48 hours, I already contacted your ordo as well as Ordo hereticus about this and the imperial navy though reluctant has agreed to assist the purging." she sighs "I hate the fact that I must do everything for you inquisitors."you leave the room and your squad follows you, Valrisa of all of them speaks up "so what do you intend to do with this information?""my job is to kill five targets on a list, what do you think I'm going to do.""you just got out of the hospital, you can't be serious?!"> have Mirasi direct us to our target's location, time to end this little cultist shite's life.> pull out your vox, time to get Markal to led us a bit of a hand. He is probably itching to get some action (fel)> ask Valrisa what she would do then? maybe she has a good idea.> write-in
>>1859462> pull out your vox, time to get Markal to led us a bit of a hand. He is probably itching to get some action (fel)Also ask for his opinion....we could just crack the planet.use less there happens to be a space marine chapter around who wanna handle this
>>1859977I got to agree with mister dubs
alright give me a 1d100 vs 35
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>1863958
alright sorry for disappearing for a few days, but I'm back and the quest shall go on, alright that was a fail roll so writing.
you pull out your Vox and connect up to Markal, a few seconds of static and his voice comes though "Hello Simun, what is this call about?""well I found my target and moving to kill, was kinda hoping that you would join us."you hear a deep and a bit annoyed sigh though the vox "I cannot Simun, the ordo has ordered that I avoid combat for the time being, Valrisa may join you but do not expect my assistance in this endeavor.""not even a little help?""look I would love to join you or give you advice but orders are orders and I must abide by what the hidden masters have decided. Though on the bright side that means you have more targets.""any advice on the situation? would just blowing up the planet be...""BY THE EMPEROR NO!""ouch, alright guessing this planet is too important.""yes, on top of being one of the few places that the imperial navy can receive repairs so far on the edge of the imperium's borders it also houses one of the most important libraries in the imperium.""alright so no bomb""No bomb."you hear the vox connection cut and you put the device away, you stretch your arms groan as the stiffness of being asleep for a few days is worked out of them."No help then?" you hear Mirasi ask from behind you"no, we are on our own."Valrisa cuts in with a muffled voice "alright people gasmasks on we are entering the Magnagorsk.""the what now?" you notice Valrisa had already gotten on a mask without you noticing"The forges of this world, trust me without the mask you will be coughing up soot and feeling ill for a year because of the poisonous gasses down there."you notice the vehicle approaching a tunnel that leads down under the planet's crust.you take her advice and put on the mask as you enter the tunnel, thankfully whatever smell that would permeate the air in here is filtered out by the mask.you continue driving and as you exit the tunnel you are greeted with a hellish view of hundreds of massive forges all aglow with molten metal. the smoke in the air hangs with an ominous malice as though attempting to choke out all life in the forges, you see men and women scurrying around the forges, covered in soot and dirt.Behind you Mirasi mutters something under her breath as you see a officer beating a civilian, but you pass by too quickly to do anything about it.eventually you reach your destination "I hope you know what you are getting us into Simun." Valrisa states getting out of the vehicle.
> alright here is the plan, since last time we came into one of these just smashing down the front door caused massive casualties and we are not getting air support we infiltrate. wait for the cultists who is late, ambush it and then enter pretending to be one of them (per, bsx2, fel)> set up a perimeter force them to one exit, when they try to run we gun them down from a distance and blow them up with grenades (bsx3, int)> Valrisa I hear you are good with a chainsword, want to give those cultists a live demonstration? (val wsx2, bsx2)> write-in
>>1869926>> Valrisa I hear you are good with a chainsword, want to give those cultists a live demonstration? (val wsx2, bsx2)
Alright give me a 4d100 vs 68, 38, 75, 45
Rolled 12, 69, 1, 72 = 154 (4d100)>>1878187
alright since a critical was rolled even if another roll is done and is better the crit will still be applied, roll without fear my friends. also 10 more minutes for rolls.
You turn towards Valrisa and give her the biggest smile, "so I heard you were pretty good with a chainsword.""this may or may not be the case""Well would you like to give the cultists a live demonstration?"Valrisa smiles and as she does you notice a little insane red glint in her eye "Oh so that is the plan? well then."she reaches into the vehicle and pulls out two chainswords, she revs both of them and you get out of the car pulling out your trusty sniper."Val you take point, we follow."without a word the crazy bitch walks up to the door and slams on it with the pommel of her chainsword "OPEN UP!""what is the password?" a voice comes though, you swear it sounds like tentacles were slithering over every word."how about this for a password!" Val shouts as she suddenly rams the sword though where the eye hole wasblood blasts out of the gap between the hole and the chainsword as you hear a a gurgled screaming and rapid movement from insideValrisa not missing a beat suddenly slams her shoulder into the door breaking it open, you charges inside and you hear the sounds of melee combat begin.while Mirasi and Terisa stand in shock you dont, rolling into the room you suddenly feel as though time slows down.around you are massive amounts of chaos symbols, cultists, and weapons. you take your sniper and begin the execution.before the cultists can even react your bullets become the best of friends with the inside of their heretical skulls.bullet after bullet discharges from the rifle and each shot hits it's mark like a bolt from heaven.unfortunately though the initial engagement goes well what comes after did not bode well. you may have killed quite a few cultists but there were more in the room than what one clip was able to deal with.quickly you realize that Valrisa also was having trouble as four cultists engaged her with heretical weaponry and several of your bullets miss their marks in your haste to even the odds> call a retreat, too many cultists too few bullets (ws, agx2)> Keep shooting, you can out last some fucking cultists with sheer willpower and bullets (bsx2)> Um.... sorry for asking again emperor but HELP!
