Welcome back to Planetary Governor Quest!
>>2413961Last we left off, you were attending a council of war on Jotun II, at the calling of Lord Inquisitor Corean, a radical Ordos Xenos leader, who has been tasked with retaking the embroiled Icara sector from separatists, chaos raiders and opportunistic xenos eating away at its worlds, and the border sectors of the Imperium.....The Icara sector and over a dozen sectors just like it, sit at the frontier of Imperial space, bordering the Halo stars to the galactic west, and cut off in the east by a massive warp storm, that has cut off travel and communications with the Imperium at large, with brief calms in the storm, allowing small groups of ships and messages to come through....
>>2413982In this galaxy of endless war, you, Maximilian Archulus Tiberius Valoran, the second brother of your line, were unexpected granted the governance of Tarkon IV and the Tarkon system. Tarkon IV is a feudal world on the frontier of the Imperium, and in the 15 years of your rule, you have made great strides to modernize the planet, increasing its wealth and military power substantially. You have brought in experts, as well as refugees and settlers from off world to bolster the population and establish several large cities and settlements.You have also been granted the Title of Marcher Lord, for your service to the Imperium, being granted the Rorscha system, a formerly modern garden world, destroyed by Dark Eldar raiders and Iban Secundus, a feral world, of stone age inhabitants, with old rumors saying that the current primitive inhabitants live atop of Dark age of Technology ruins.....
>>2414008During your time as governor, you also came across a group of Astartes in black armor, claiming to be part of the 1st legion. After some time and building of trust, you find that these are time warped dark angels, thrown through the warp to a distant time and place from the destruction of Caliban, they now serve you in exchange for mutual loyalty, and protection of the astartes, who are hunted by their modern Dark Angel compatriots.....
>>2414015You also have been able to establish strong relations with several other key figures, most notably the Magos Xeroth, who, as a radical member of the Adeptus Mechanicus has assisted you in developing your own technology, and has even imparted some knowledge of the more simple and mundane Imperial technology to non-members of the Mechanicus, although the Magos still jealously protects the secrets of more advanced technology, only agreeing to give us some of his production in exchange for protectoin and raw materials....In addition after a warp drive explosion from a boarded Inquistion warship scuttling itself, a warp rift was temporarily opened near Tarkon, this culminated in the arrival of the Wrath of Manachea, a warship that vanished into the warp in M30, carrying supplies for the great Crusade along with a large number of Solar Auxilia troops, 2 dozen Luna Wolf Astartes and a hold full of war material, including thousands of sets of power armor, large caches of power weapons and even some Volkite and archeotech weapons. They also have several vehicles and 2 dreadknought chassis from the era.....
>>2413982You decided to join the nobles on Jotun II at the sports fields, an opportunity to mingle and network the political elite of the sector, and region at large.....You decide to follow the advice of Captain Tziviali and along with the other lordlings on your team, take the polo field against the opposing team, apparently made up of local lordlings....You lizard mount shifts under your weight as you give it kick with your spurred boot to your teams starting area...You clutch your mallet tightly in your hand as the referree walks to the middle of the field, and prepares to drop the ball....You jolt for a moment as the referee blows his whistle and the ball is dropped....Unfortunately the other team gets possession first, one of their team members, on a motor bike able to quickly secure the ball...You quickly move to cover one of his open teammates while your team mates follow suit....The other team attempts to pass to the player your covering....A. Attempt to intercept it and steal the ball for your teamB. Stick close to the man your coveringC. Other(Write-in)
>>2414116Links to old threads are at the bottom of the pastebin

>>2414077B. Stick close to the man your covering
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>2414673>>2414121You stick close to the man your covering, he is riding a lizard mount, just like you
>>2414673>>2414121It seems the mastery of your mount has eluded you, and your beast balks as your press it forward, near to the man your covering, creating enough separation, for the pass to go between you, safely into the control of the opposing player, who swings and has a near miss, almost scoring a goal, if not for the actions of Captain Tziviali, who is able to block an easy shot, with his destrier and force the opponent to take a corner shot instead, causing a miss.....
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>2414717Recovering the situation you press your beast on to the other side of the field, getting open, as one of the other players moves to cover you...Tzivali makes a gesture and smacks the ball close to you.....

>>2414728B. Pass it to your team mateI remember this is a team game.
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>2414733You decide to try to pass to your teammate...
Rolled 36 (1d100)>>2414986You swing your mallet at the ball, getting your lizard at a light gallop before you strike the ball, carefully calibrating the power and direction of hitting the ball so that it goes to your teammate, who gets control of the ball, and slams it into the net, getting a cheer from the rest of your team, and several bystanders watching the game as your team scores the first goal of the game....You can see your archrival, Alpharius and his group watching from the sidelines, not looking particularly happy about the score....Your team rallies for the ball to be dropped, hoping to score again before the half is called....
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>2415004The next few minutes go poorly, as your team works their way down the field near the other teams goal before a pass is intercepted and the other team seizes the initiative, scoring a goal for their own....Halftime is called, and you are able to get a quick snack and drink from a nearby stand before riding back onto the field....Both teams take position as the ball is dropped....
>>2415020Your team is able to seize the initiative and possession of the ball, sucessfully pushing all the way onto to the other side of the field....Captain Tziviali sees youre open, and passes the ball to you, you move your mount and your mallet to get receive the pass....
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>2415039
>>2415042Isn't low good here or is it high?
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>2415042You completely wiff on your first swing, totally missing the ball, Unfortunately you look away for a brief moment, as you regain your focus, you can see something pass into your peripheral vision from the left, as one of the other team, crashes his destrier into your lizard, knocking you off balance, and stealing the ball from you....The other team quickly pushes up the field, taking advantage of your briefly being stunned, and are able to set up a pass on the goal....
>>2415072Unfortunately, the other team manages to score getting past the Captain, who tried to block the shot, winning the game....As the game is called by the referees, you walk back to the sidelines, Captain Tziviali quickly catches up to you"T'was a good game my Lord, although I confess I am deeply dissapointed you did not make that shot...."A. "I will admit polo is not my forte, but I think we make a good team, I would be interested in working with you in the future"B. "The other team got lucky, I wont be letting it happen again"C. Other(Write-in)
>>2415097A. "I will admit polo is not my forte, but I think we make a good team, I would be interested in working with you in the future."
Catching up from the archives, do we end up ditching the retarded Average of three rolls?
>>2415569Correct I no longer use averages
>>2415097A. "I will admit polo is not my forte, but I think we make a good team, I would be interested in working with you in the future"
>>2416586>>2415112You tell him how polo is not your forte and talk about sports for a moment, when you are contacted on your vox....Corean wants a personal audience....You are quick to say your goodbyes and board a shuttle going back to the massive fortress overlooking Jotun IIs capital city
Oh shit son, the quest is back!
>>2417552You are placed under heavy guard and escorted to Lord Inquisitor as your shuttle touches down on one of the dozens of landing pads in the massive fortress complex....You are brought onto an elevator, and go down hundreds of feet underground before stopping and being led through what seems like an endless twist of corridors before you are brought into a small conference room, complete with a medium sized table, several comfortable chairs and a tray with snacks and drinks for guests..Corean's eyes light up as you enter the room"Maxi! How's my favorite young governor?"A. "Excellent, im sure youve heard, im to be married soon"B. "I am doing well, and my forces have pushed the heretics and xenos back in my area"C. Other(Write-in)

Start explaining yourself....B. Let him continue speakingC. Other(Write-in)
>>2418032B. Let him continue speakingNever jump to defending yourself, you don't know WHAT your guilty of so you might bring up something he doesn't know.
>>2418032B. Let him continue speaking
>>2418072>>2418039You decide to let him continue, without incriminating yourself...."We need to talk about the Crusaders of Dorn chapter and your dealings with them..."After you tell him what you know, downplaying your involvement with the chapter, he tells you that he would be willing to help clear their name, if they submit to monitoring and testing by the Inquisition for heresy and taints of chaos....He also asks if you know anything about the xenos weapons that have been turning up all over the sector, being used by rebels, pdfs and several private armiesA. I will thoroughly investigate the weaponsB. I have information on the weapons and the man supplying themC. Other(Write-in)
>>2418511B. I have information on the weapons and the man supplying them
>>2418559>>2418527You decide to tell him about tzavaras sale of the weapons, while omitting your secret project with xeroth manufacturing them for your own forces....You speak for a few more moments before being ushered off as Corean is busy until the evening when the war council is being formally called, with almost every local governor and imperial commander being present....
>>2418592You arrive along with the rest of the leaders for the war council, a working dinner where Corean will present the strategy for the upcoming campaign....Everyone is given an information packet and seated around a large wooden table in a massive conference room, with servants darting in and out carrying snacks and beverages for the attending leaders...
>>2418634You are surprised when in the first half hour he calls Lord Tiberius and Lord General Kredorf to the front of the room....Both men saunter to the front of the room, clearly expecting some sort of commendation... At a sign from the Lord Inquisitor both men are seized by his elite stormtroopers and brought to their knees....It takes but a moment for the Lord General to start crying and begging for his life..."Please Lord Inquisitor! I just wanted to live to fight another day... Please!""This man fled Argos III with his entire staff, personal wealth and harem, while letting the Separatists overwhelm his army and seize the planet... The sentencing for this dereliction of duty and betrayal of the emperor is death...."He quickly draws his pistol, clearly of xenos or archeotech origin and shoots the Lord General in the head....You visibly see several men wince or jump at the bark of the Lord Inquisitors pistol as the Lord Generals brains are spread against the wall...
>>2418728He then turns to Lord Tiberius..."This man, agreed to a truce with the separatists! He wouldve abandoned us all, as the sector is being swallowed by the darkness of heresy, xenos and worse!"Without another word, he fires his pistol into the governors head...
>>2418742You see johann briefly show an expression of complete fear on his face, before regaining his composure, you just hope no one else saw it....The meeting continues for another 2 hours the shock slowly seeping in....For better or worse your assignment is to defend your territory

A heavily armed converted merchant ship, which announces itself as part of the Rift settlement defence fleet....Your augur scans quickly detect several other ships in the system, powering weapons....The space hulk has drifted slightly farther into realspace and the settlement has grown further, attracting more than fringers and refugees, and with a minor navigator house opening an office at the settlement. You are contacted over the vox by the lead rifter ship..."Greetings Lord Governor, welcome to the Rift settlement!"Docking bays 9 through 12 have been set aside for shuttles from your fleet"You have the ship get close to the station before boarding your shuttle and docking at the rift settlement port...You are accompanied by several members of your staff, as well as 2 dozen of your elite personal guard troops, including 2 Orgyns, who while dimwitted, provide valuable muscle and intimidation....You meet Commander Kran, who meets you at the docking bay....You notice he has adopted a much more luxurious and fancy uniform since you last met him....

(Although he could have just dressed up a standard issue powersword and made up a story)You also see a rare arc pistol, an ancient type of adeptus mechanicus weapon, that literally shoots lightning, so far you have only seen a few Magos carrying such a weapon, and you only know of its power from Sergeant Zachias, who tells you about fighting along side the mechanicus during the Great Crusade,and their great and terrible weapons they can bring to bear....Finally you see the most interesting rare item is a small ring....You ask about it...."The ring, well let me fill you in on a little secret, for 100.000 thrones I will have my Jokaero slave craft you a digi-weapon ring of the finest make and power"The merchant points at the dirty, underfed ape-like creature hanging in the cage in the back of his stallAs a scion to a wealthly noble line, you were aware of digi-weapons, as they are a popular means of defence for rich and powerful in the imperium, they are a pistol sized one shot weapon concealed inside a ring or necklace usually, allowing you to carry a last-ditch weapon around with ease, as well as providing a surprise weapon in fights....The merchant tells you it can fire the following shotsFlame shot- equal to a hand flamerMelta shot- equal to an inferno pistolLas shot- equal to a laspistolA.
