You Kolinaisi Kaiko Wahthiri RuaRua of The Something Fierce. Warchief of De'lormosa. Primarch. And you are feeling actual anger.Upon arrival at the throne room of Perturabo's father you are confronted with a powerful beast that is capable of acting on the material realm and the warp at the same time. It also does not fear you. It's actions speak louder than it's annoying shrill voice could ever could as whilst dodging salvos from Perturabo it takes the extra fraction of a second to literally kick Perturabo's adoptive father whilst he is lying on the floor.It acts without pity or remorse. You can feel it's callous and cold intentions. It is enjoying causing this havoc.You are feeling very angry at this.You feel an emotional tidal wave rock up on you for this beings actions. However, your intelligence, your study and your diligence looking at what that old man sent you. You know of three words: One being what the old man will need you to say when you see him, the word բարձրացում. Then the word which you believe he has been using to send things, or phrase of ուղարկեք այն. But the notes indicated something else. Something if needed, but should rarely be used. Something that seemed to be the opposite of the other word. As the being clearly sneers and lifts up with its wings you feel the machine spirits and you begin the subtle communication for them to help empower you. These old and ancient spirits of the old walkers and turrets happily are willing to oblige. As Perturabo rushes towards the sneering creature that wanted this your mouth moves and out it comesը̵̪͉̥̞̰͇̤̗͎̱͖̗́͋̉̍̽̃̄̌̍̔͐͆̑̌̔͆̌̐̊̌͐̈́̐̓͘͘͜͝ն̷̡̞̞̪̪̱̼̤͎͚̦͇̠͓̺̙̼͍͉͖̒͐̌̄͑͌͂̉͊̃̓̈͌̄́̒̐̚͜͜͝͠ͅկ̸̢̛̝̯͙͈̗̻̼̙̱̀̂̋̈́̎́͐͑̒͛͑́̓̿̎̕͝͝ն̶̢̡̢̢̛̥̝̼̞͍̼̰̺͔͎͉͍̻̆̄̌̔͛̔͑̂̎̃͊̀͂̂̏̂́͌̈́̃̎͛̚̚͘͝͝ե̶̗́̏͑̉լ̵̨̨̛͇̳͚͉͚͔̙̻̍͜ You say in a voice like a choir of thunder as the earth shakes around you and you use raw electricity to shock it. The beast falls. It looks at you with a strange look on it's face and it, doesn't fly, but runs, towards you. "HOW DARE YOU! THE ABSOLUTE HUBRIS! THE ABSURD TEMERITY! A CRUDE APE STEALING FIRE FROM IT'S BETTERS! I SHALL TEACH YOU THE WAYS OF PAIN!" It screeches more than roars as it blindly charges, fast enough that you should be worried, but it is clearly not thinking right, otherwise it would know that Perturabo wouldn't even pretend to have a fight like this be fair. You dodge it's precision strike that would have probably taken anyone else's head clean off and you wheel around with a strike with your axe, and it manipulates it's body just enough that you only graze it where it shrieks again after being hit by a hail of rounds from perturabo.
>>5303618It is suddenly really obvious Perturabo is an absurdly good marksman because some of the shots were very close to you. You let the machine spirits assist you in your swings empowering your weapon further. It moves as fast as you. But it cannot fly at least. "IT GETS WORSE. YOU STEAL THE STRENGTH OF MANA ITSELF. AND PEOPLE CALL ME MONSTER." it shouts. The fight is surreal. You are barely able to land any blows on it at all, and Perturabo is firing at it with ammunitions that you are really certain would hit you if he wasn't a good shot and you werent fast moving. The Khrave, while unable to land a solid hit on you is studying and realizing things about you. It then breaks away. "Time to stop fighting on your terms."It the unleashes a wall of energy sending you and perturabo back a little bit. You land on your feet and it smirks"Well now I know how to hit you." It says. -->> Not for long- mix it up. Attack with a different style and techniqu.>> Good. So do I. Get in close and begin striking at nerve centers, tendons and joints. Use this large beasts own anatomy to it's downfall>> Begin utilizing islander arts, and use this beasties weight against it, especially since it cannot fly now, >> Write in

You can sense the electrical pulses and signals coming from it's body. You can sense the nerve cluster that would be very similar to something in the human anatomy that would probably be the most painful spot for you to hit. You also have determined the sex of the beast. You know it's a short distance. Getting up to speed to be able to mitigate your opponent in such a small gap, will be almost impossible. Almost. You don't try to calculate your speed, that would be pointless. You act like your coming in with your axe, and the beast, is barely able to react. Incorrectly. To your feint. It swings where your head would be, opening up a very crucial weak spot where you spring up with your feet. You knock the being skyward, and due to speed, mastery of electricity, the machine spirits helpin ya, you are able to somehow control your motions like flight and begin attacking what is clearly a him. In the place they thought they would never be attacked. The air. It's short. It's a few joint strikes to areas that are not double jointed and a strike that would normally break a leg before tossing him to the ground Where Perturabo is waiting lay with a salvo of actual fire. The beast rolls away and blinks in and out of reality to merely put itself out and instantly lunge at you. Trying in a vain attempt to do the same attack to you. Normally you would do a throw, but instead you wait till the last possible moment and sidestep and strike him down. He responds with an explosive attack that knocks you away as you are unable to stop the blast. Erihapti however, sneaks past him, from an angle, and places a grenade. Before running away. Just like you trained. "Good Girl." You say with a smile as the explosion rocks the beast causing them to fall forward. You cough up a little blood and a tooth fragment.The beast rises up. "YOU. I KNOW WHICH ONE YOU ARE. THE ABBERANT! THE SHARK! THE PAWN UNBOUND! THE ONE WITH THE UNSPEAKABLE FUCKING NAME! YOU ARE CAUSING ALL OF THIS!" he roars in anger as you ready your daggers and approach"YOU WHOM ARE RIGHTING THE WRONGS, FIXING THE CAREFUL STEPS! BREAKING THE CHAINS AND SETTING THINGS IN MOTION THAT SHOULD NOT BE! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO SIDE WITH US! DIE!" The beast lets lose another explosion that is countered by a wave of electricity from heroic machine spirits, that may also be protecting their ancient housings.The beast flings itself at you and your body is only able to react by grappling and the beast claws at you and you are able to struggle. But at least it allows Perturabo to fire upon him with impunity. So you fight like an islander.He thinks ya a shark?Bet."OWWW YOU'RE BITING ME?! GAAAH!" "YA CALLED ME A SHARK MATE WHADYA EXPECT?!" "ARROGANT WHELP! LEARN THE BITE OF THE KHRAVE!"It tries to bite you in retaliation.
>>5305061It bites down on one of Meera's specialty grenades and you pull the pin kicking him into the air as it turns into a fiery conflagration. It screams loudly as, while on fire, it still tries to attack you. >> Keep distance, you don't need to catch on fire too. Range it, and keep it at bay, it probably has some sort of trick to put itself out.>> Use water to worsen it and cause an additional explosion upon it. >> While it's distracted, CAREFULLY, go in for more punishing attacks. >> Write in

Internet outage. Will have post tonight.
>>5306577You smirk, and you take the little squirt bottle of water that you have for others and throw it, at a really fast speed, that hits the 'Khrave' and it further explodes into fire in shrieks and screams.The screams are painful enough that it actually wakes you start to hear reactions from the girls, which is good, and Erihapti begins crackling back. Chunks of flaming flesh litter the area as the being is still on fire, though to a lesser extent, and you see a whole part of it's ear disintegrate in fire before your eyes. The beast looks almost malformed as if it's trying to pull itself back together. Then you hear it. Quiet as a whisper. "No." It says and you feel a pressure change in the air, your body is telling you to move."YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS! I SWEAR REVENGE!" it screams and another explosive burst happens which both you and perturabo duck. You know what this is. It is going to use some matter of warp or psychic trickery to teleport itself away. Not today.Not on your watch. You move too fast for it to comprehend. You quickly draw a circle around the beast with the special mud kit, and the beast starts screaming louder. It then tries to step through and is pained"YOU MADE A CIRCLE OF NOCTOLITH? TWO CAN PLAY THAT!" It says and makes a quick motion and does something fast to the ground with a finger that is not on fire and the noctolith glows a baleful color suddenly the air rushes out from the circle, the fire is out, but the damage from the explosions are apparent as whole parts of flesh are missing including one eye, most of both of it's prominent ears, three fingers, most of it's toes and it's jaw seems completely broken. It then starts speaking something you cannot understand and it slowly looks like it's healing, but only just enough. It pounds the ground and the circle breaks and it steps out. And begins limping then takes a fierce stance. "No more shouting. No more games." It says it's jaw snapping back in place. "This ancient and noble form is beyond you, but I will fight you like the base animal you are with tooth." It says spitting out a tooth into one hand that turns into a dagger similar to yours"And Claw" It out stretches it's hand to reveal a powerful gauntlet with long sharp ends for fingers that would be a very useful weapon. It charges at you and you charge at it. The tangle is very messy. Your body doesn't have time to dodge, when you are trying to carve out the flesh from it's body. However, you are strongYou are used to pain and your scars tell that story. Then something happens.It's head get's knocked to the side by a hammerPerturabo, is using the techniques from the sparring match. The beast tries to divert Perturabo away..
>>5307070"Wait your turn whelp." The beast says in it's attempt that turns sour when he does a trapping move similar to what you would do with an axe and lines his head up with his hammer..."This is no game wretch. This is life or death." Perturabo says with a voice of scorn knocking him back with a swing to his head with the hammer then nodding to you as your honor guard slowly comes to line and stands up. Deliah does a call and the girls respond with a bark, as they activate their spears, looking exceptionally angry.>> Assault with Perturabo.

I have issues to attend to this weekend so I will likely post from mobile tonight the perspective shift if we get a vote, if not I will probably post one of the last free spaces I can post for a while. Yeesh we got to a weird conflux really fast where I cannot post too much one way otherwise the story gets weird.
Will post more tonight once I arrive at a stable internet point.However as an update, Kolinaisi has gotten a new keyword, which I have to update.
>>5309758You look and Perturabo and you both have the briefest recognition. This may be his fight. But he is not alone. You charge in with him, and suddenly several firing rounds cover you from Deliah, as she provides cover honor guard goes to fixing up the family of Perturabo. "I will not move back." The beast says"I stand still instead." As you attack it completely changes tactics. Where it was once evasive, it begins to just absorb the attacks and blocking. When Perutabo strikes he grabs it with his hand. When you swing your axe he parries and pushes it away. This isn't to say he is on a pure defense, he strikes back, and he grazes you multiple times. The strikes are strong, and Perturabo's stubborn attitude is allowing him to hold the line, but you fear that if it wasn't one of your brothers, they would be dead or worse. You strike repeatedly as Deliah's firing, actually seems to be doing something which is surprising to say the least-He is no longer immune to range attacks. He is somehow able to control which attacks he is able to just ignore. As perturabo continues to hit you begin firing with electric blasts, then he focuses on you instead of perturabo, but isntead of responding with speed, he slowly walks towards you. Perturabos hits do nothing, and you realize. Perturabo is setting him up. You continue on with Perturabos tactic drawing him towards you and Deliah. Then, whatever absurd weapon on Perturabo's gauntlet begins firing at it's rapid pace doing significantly more damage than your weapons.It sneers. And turns towards Perturabo. Then you see it. A sheen. A quick change of color. Almost undetectable. You are on the back of the beast with your daggers at speeds you don't want to calcuate. There is a roar as the daggers penetrate his back and it screams. "WHERE DID YOU EVEN GET THAT KIND OF METAL?!" It shouts as it seems trapped in place, it seems desperate to try to flee and disappear like it had before, but it seems anchored somehow. Perturabo casually walks up looks at his hammer then at the beast. Without word or warning the beast falls to the ground a bloodied puddle, and Pertuarbos hammer on the ground where a head once would have been. "Bo!" A younger woman runs up to your brother. "You returned!" She says. "Of course I would. Why wouldn't I?" You sense something odd in his voice, something new. "Father- y-you need to see him." Perturabo runs over and you do as well, Meera gives you a look as she tends to the father. This look, you can tell, you cannot save him. His father is about to die, but before you say anything. "Per-tu-perturabo. Son, I am sorry. I didn't have enough time. I didn't listen." He says, with tears in his eyes, as Perturabo is displaying something new. Varied, and highly visible emotion. "F"
>>5310183"No. Son, listen. I shouldn't have pushed you. You had so many beautiful ideas! Your designs are flawless. I pushed you towards war- and it brought back the black judges. If I would have listened, if I would have paid attention to you, like a father should and not treated you like a weapon, we wouldn't be here. We would be in that palace you had on your wall, that bath house you showed me, and I wouldn't be an old fool dying in his own blood and feces." He coughs out."No. Father." The word sounds almost like a new experience from perturabo. "Father, I should have spoken up! I should have been less afraid to talk! You are no psyker! You couldn't read my mind past my expressions, I, I failed you. I swear, I will be better at communication father. We will talk more! Look! I have a brother! His name is Kolinaisi, you have to talk to him." Perturabo says and his father looks up at you, "Heh. You two have similar eyes. But you look like you spend all the time in the sun." He says"Ya. Your son is brilliant. He has helped me save many lives.""What are you?" He asks and Perturabo looks at you desperately as Gela looks like she may actually be keeping him alive just a bit longer. Choose the right words..>> I am a big man of De'lormosa, a privateer, warrior, surgeon and primarch- and I am someone who is grateful ya at least did right by ya son.>> I am a chief from a far off planet, and captain of a ship, your son freed many people from the black judges>> I'm a surgeon and brother, your son is a brilliant man and has saved lives on our ship>> I'm a but a simple man, who knows a family when he sees it. >> I am an engineer, and your son amazes me with his skill daily>> I am many things, but what I am now, at this moment, is someone who is not looking at a failure, but a man who is looking at a good son and a proud father>> I am a primarch, like your son, and know that what good you have shown your son, what lessons you taught will live on for long after we are all gone>> Write in-Seeing as the perspective shift is without a clear decision, I will give four options here, Choose one>> Konrad Kurze>> Lorgar>> Roboute>> Fulgrim (Though he is not the hawk piece but hell, why not.)
>>5310187>> I'm a but a simple man, who knows a family when he sees it.>> LorgarShit then who is the hawk?
>>5310187> I am a big man of De'lormosa, a privateer, warrior, surgeon and primarch- and I am someone who is grateful ya at least did right by ya son.> Lorgarif fulgrim isn't the hawk My bet would be the Khan or Malcador
The whole board moved. The ground quaked under the tank piece. One of the most secure pieces, the board shook. "WHAT IS THIS TRICKERY?" The unclean one shouted at the trickster, and the trickster did not speak- For as much as it would want to claim credit, it couldn't and not even being supreme in deceit could hide this level of shock, the tricksters mouth agape, the youngest cackled. "AND YOU DOUBTED THE SHARK! BEHOLD THE TABLE BREAKS UNDER MY BRILLIANCE!" The youngest shouted elated the oldest merely sighed. Then from the void. "No. It was not the trickster. It was not the debauched youth. It wasn't the stagnent bump. And it certainly wasn't the oldest."And the shadow took form. The Eternal Paradox. Malal smiled with contempt, hate and a shining insanity. "LOOK ON MY WORKS YE GREAT ONES AND DESPAIR. FOR YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN, BUT I HAVE NOT. I HAVE GROWN IN POWER. AND NOW I TAKE MY PLACE AT THE TABLE, SO THAT SOON I MAY FLIP IT." Malal screeched. "What you have done?! You may have just ruined ou""NO. I HAVE MADE THINGS RIGHT. THERE CAN BE NO SHARED VICTORY. CHAOS MUST BE ANARCHY, NOT AN ETERNAL WALTZ AND ENDLESS CYCLE. NO, I, INITIATED THIS. THE WHEEL WILL BE BROKEN, I SHALL BRING UPON THE VOID EMBRACED." Malal. The oldest calmly spoke. "Come out ye gold one. You may as well come out to play as well." The oldest said causing Malal to twitch. "Oh, well if you insist." The voice was there and yet not. As the being was there and yet not. "YOU?! YOU DARE?!" Malal shrieked. "If there is anarchy, surely there must be order. If there is belief, the must be yet disbelief. There can be things you cannot yet comprehend, things you cannot know- forces yet unexplained. Here at once, and yet not at all.""SPEAK PLAINLY! WE ALREADY HAVE ONE SCHEMING MANIAC HERE!" the youngest shouted. " Oh but I do! I cannot speak any more plain! I do not exist, yet here I am, and surely there is more than just me waiting to move, things yet waiting to be born." And the others worried as the newcomer smirked, then disappeared but not before touching one piece...
>>5310227>>5310230It will be revealed in time homies.
>>5310243_Which Piece was touched>> The Hawk>> The Tower>> The Favored Son (it was something else but I like this one.)>> The Hunter>> The Bat>> The Dragon>> The Star>> The Hydra>> The Shark
>>5310249when it says the newcomer touches a piece is it the golden one or malal that touches it.if it's Malal this would really stir up some shit.> The Favored Son.If the Golden One> The Bat

>>5310519Reteading that option, it's a bit too harsh to tell a dying man, changing to.>> I am many things, but what I am now, at this moment, is someone who is not looking at a failure, but a man who is looking at a good son and a proud father>> I'm a but a simple man, who knows a family when he sees it.Also the Lorgar option to this>> Fulgrim (Though he is not the hawk piece but hell, why not.)Because I wonder how Fulgrim thinks now that the bitch no longer has a hold on him.
>>5310249>The favored son
Sorry, I am under the weather lads. The Lupercal stood up and with his Mournivale. This latest writ from his father, and the Luna Wolves was concerning. The words of his father. "Clear a corridor to ultimasegmentium. We are finding your brothers." It was a mandate. The segmentum was wild and rough. Eldar, Orkz, and many other strange races. The Ganth, the Hrud, the Falthrax, Lathe, and so many other annnoying xenos. He was told about his lost brothers from his father and Magnus. Kolinaisi, a pirate captain and spirited technologist.Roboute, a legionarre and brilliant general.Angron, a gladiator yet deeply insightful and empathic.Perturabo, an engineer and the one they knew the least about. His mission was simple. Open the way, and hold it, so that other legions may break through the lines. While the 11th and 12th had been in ultima segmentum before, this was a new push in the crusade. His fathers eyes had changed. There was a new fire. Something powerful that he had not seen before. While Horus was always in awe of his father, this was new. His Mournivale knew it too. "Here." Horus pointed. The small system, was of hidden strategic import. It was small, yet, it offered a clear way into the system. The Telemark system, blink and you would miss it on a star chart. However, taking it- would allow for the corridor his father wanted to be opened. The Planet Telemark 4. He had to make his initial invasion here. "Who will be covering the invasion once we have opened the system up?""There are already deep eleventh and twelfth legion elements, and suppposedly, there are reports of- them." Horus said"Oh c'mon you don't believe in that nonsense do you? The twentieth legion?" Abbadon repsonded "My sources are valid. Anyways just opening up the corridor will make things easier. Supposedly it's either the third or fourth behind us." Horus said"A lot of supposedly. Why no actual facts yet?""This, my friends, is an exceptionally fluid situation. Fulgrim, Magnus and I were given this mandate while" And horus sighed. "Lion'el Johnson, our newest primarch will command the first, in his initial push north."
>>5312011"WHAT?! HE JUST GETS TO COMMAND A LEGION RIGHT OUT THE GATE?!" Abbadon said with no hint of hiding "It is very awkward." Garvial Lokken chimed in from across the deck. "Truly." Little Horus said. "It's the first legion, if there was any legion that would be a turnkey operation, it would be that one." Garvial said causing a few voices of agreement and Horus gave an odd look. "If you saw the planet, and what he did- I wouldn't blame father. I imagine at least two more of our brothers when found will be in that situation. The eleventh is already doing raids on planets as we speak, without a legion." Horus says"Yeah but he's some hopped up techno-barbarian with absurd technology and from how magnus says it, sounds like the most insane luck of all time." Abbadon says. "It takes more than luck to do that. The eleventh will be someone to watch. What about this, Roboute Gulliman?" "He seems fairly boring. Like he landed on the perfect planet to be raised to be a primarch." Garvial Lokken again chimed in and looked at the map. "Tenth Company goes first?""This time, Aye Captain Lokken. You go first. " Horus said and Garvial nodded. --You look at the dying man. "I am many things. But what I am now, is a man who isn't looking at a failure, but a man who is looking a good son and a proud father." You say. Perturabo began weeping, angry tears while holding his father. "No. I was so cold. No human deserves what you endured, father. I am sorry. Could you forgive me?" Perturabo asks"Any wrongs you have done are forgiven and forgotten. Go forth, my son. Be a just man." He says coughing his last breath. The large walkers nearby begin moving all four of them. And in what has to be the most calculated strike you have ever seen, Perturabo fires multiple weapons at once, utilizing strange devices and they collapse. "Remove the pilots, the longer they stay in their armor the longer they have a chance to heal and survive." Perturabo says and you go to the nearest and quickly dislodge the shell of a human that passes for a pilot. It's so dark and twisted it shocks you. Even the Ganth didn't go this far. Perturabo throws the two out on the ground, and attaches some device that looks like a kind of beacon. "Come Kolinaisi, we need to join the fray of the actual battlefield. I doubt any are higher rank than the Khrave.">> Inform your brother that you are coming out after a small trip to the armory to use their own weapons against them. >> Call the chainbreakers, have them clear as much of the field. >> All hands, their leader has fallen. Prepare for retaliatory strikes. >> Inform the knights it's time to begin their portion>> Have the tactical orbital strike begin>> Have UR use Perturabo's device or warmachine or whatever it is. >> Write in

We need to figure out how to skateboard so we can style on abaddon when we meet him
"All hands, there leader has fallen. Prepare for retaliatory strikes. Knights, begin your portion of this." "Cuz. It's ya time to shine." your cousin says. The knight is tall like lancers, and the whole process- is different. You and the machine are one. Which is really good, because wew. The black judges have multiple giant machines. Only three are as big as you, but there are many smaller ones. "Arona, do as we trained. Follow my lead, we approach this like bullies. Do not fight anything one on one unless you have to." Lancer tells you, but you know, that it will probably end up being like that. "So which one we goin after first?" You say bringing your knight to line with lancer."The ugly black spikey one." He says, not helping narrow down the target."That's all of them." You respond dryly enough for Cuz, were he here, to snort. "Yeah. I haven't- look I haven't lead a team and a new knight before, I am still gettin used to this.""That would've been nice to know earlier!" You shout over the comms, part shock, part excitement. You want to fight, and take down these engines. It's like you have something to prove, or maybe it's the throne spirit."Fine the one on the far right with the big ass cannon and the thing that looks like a whip. You fire at it I'll flank it, then we move on to the next one." He says"Simple enough." You say, the sarcasm almost visible. "It's a common maneuver and you have the perfect knight for it. Go!" You bring the knight to a run, the controls, with how you have mastered them come naturally. The machine spirit is cold, calculating and cruel. For a reason. You can sense the weight of it. It wants to take out the biggest threat, other knights and titans, not so much wants as needs to. It knows, for victory to be assured, the enemy must not stand a chance. And removing the titans, removes chances very quickly. As you fire the graviton singularity cannon you feel it. A hunger for victory, this drive to destroy your foes. However- you feel stronger feelings rise up from the engine. A desire to protect those you care about. A desire to prove yourself. This isn't normal for this type of engine. But for this knight, this is how it feels. You let out a howl and let the war horn blare as the earth quakes beneath you. The enemy engine fires upon you and the mighty ion shield absorbs it as you would a meager punch. As it winds up to hit you with the whip lancer collides with it and practically hoists it upon his lance knocking the machine back. You realize you have broken through their front line with this act and begin to fire with the lascutter upon the downed machine preventing it from rising again."Arona! Next target!" Lancer shouts and you turn, realizing the engine is well and done.
>>5313581And you see the problem. Another large machine engine has appeared. This one much larger than yours, but not quite to the size of a titan, at least you think. Part of you wishes you could hunt a titan. However part of you knows that is dangerous and dumb. This, will have to do."Didn't you say no to one on one?" You ask "We weren't outnumbered by an odd integer! You go for the big one, I'll harass the others."__>> Make this complicated. Fight the big one in a place least easy for the black judges.>> Harass and flank it. Move and be annoying keeping the thing away from lancer. >> Charge and off balance it. It may be bigger than you, but you are as fast as lancer and a whole lot meaner. >> Write in. __Lorgar awoke from a cold sweat. It was the dream again. His parents. The lives that were lost would be reclaimed. He carefully slipped out of the wagon and walked outside. At least it wasn't the vision. More troubling. A giant in bronze next to a cyclops in blue robes coming to the planet. Maybe it was a sign that Terra was en route?Late night still. He wandered not far from the caravan. These were zealots. These servants of the covenant or godsworn or whatever ridiculous group they were. The crew was interesting to talk to, but he found peace watching the stars, wondering if he had any other brothers from terra, looking at the stars now. His people taught him to find the star sol, and that was home. He sat down and looked at it. "Why do you always come out and look at the stars young one?" It was Kor Phaeron. An exiled priest. You had been trying to appeal to his logic, and subtly try to influence him. But he was fervent in his beliefs. Time to try honesty. "That star.""The prophets star? Why do you watch it?""It is called something else in the old tongue. It is called Sol. It is the star that is circled by Terra." "That is an awfully specific fact.""It is. It's where we come from.""Oh. That old creation myth. The one of the pariahs. We came from the stars, we shall one day return from the stars.""What is so bad about that? Is it any worse than the gods you worship?""I suppose not. Though don't say it to loud or the covenant will hear it and kick you out.""Why?"Why what?""If your religion is so accepting, why would the kick you out? What makes your ideas so radical? What are you teaching that makes you such a threat that you too are an exiled sect running round the desert?" Lorgar asked. "I wanted to convert more people, more often. We should act more aggressive in converting the heathen masses." Kor Phaeron spoke and Lorgar sighed. "So this religion, wants to convert people to it's cause, yet doesn't agree with you converting more people?" Lorgar asked in a confused voice."Yes it's confusing to me too."
>>5313585"Why would you follow such teachings. If your religion is true, then shouldn't you want to have as many converted as possible?""Precisely- I sense there is a but coming on.""But why would your deities permit this?" "They are testing me.""You who, are suffering, by no cause save your own, in defense of your faith, now wandering the desert in a small caravan. Your gods seem cruel.""It's a test of strength.""Well you are strong! Look around you! Not many who actively choose this life survive, much less those who do so unwillingly. You have friends, food, and shelter.""Precisely! The gods provide!""Do they? In all your praying I hear you pray for power, for your sect to realize their folly, for a sign of something. Yet, you manage to survive all on your own.""By the gods mercy.""If it's mercy, it seems a bit strange. Is there another religion? Maybe one that doesn't require all the nonsensical suffering and paradoxical beliefs?""They aren't a true religion, I don't sense you understanding that.""I don't. I wish I had the oratory skills these covenant of yours have to move cities.""Why? What would you do? Who would you have them worship?""Whomever they want. It isn't relevant to me, and honestly I'd be more concerned with finishing the task.""The task?""We arrived here, via a great ship. If we can rebuild it, we can return to Terra. To blue oceans, to green forests. To something besides this desert, albeit beautiful." Lorgar said picking up a simple jump rat and putting it down." What about what happens when you die? Do you not fear for your soul?" Lorgar asked"Your tenets of your religion, they tell you to act justly among other things yes?""And sacrifice for the gods, and to give them there due.""If you are poor, though so long as you act good that is fine right?""Correct.""Then if I live justly then why should I even care? If any gods would punish me for living well and just then why would I worship them.""That is a youthful view.""I want my people to live better than this. To have a future. What happens after I live, only matters if there is legacy to them. How I am remembered. That is what is important. So we build the ship. We return to Terra and we go home." Lorgar said. "I can't fault you for such a simple view. I would ask you to come with me to the city in the next stop, but I don't feel it's right for you." Kor Phareon says. "I have to go with you anyways. I have to see if I can find anything on the list." Lorgar says"You have a list?""All the last pariahs do. To start our great ship, much must be gathered. Fortunately there is a great deal that is viewed as junk. Mine is larger than the rest, but it's a task I take.""Well join me. Maybe you might learn something, or find more of your friends! At least let me show you some of the great works that were made by the godsworn and the covenant.">> Lorgar went with Kor Phaeron>> Lorgar went alone into the city.>> Write in

And also let's be honest there is no reason to trust Kor Phaeron if you know the lore.
Your knight is faster than Lancers, which is shocking, considering how Lancer kept going on how he was the fastest of the knights, not like that is something to brag about. Also Koli probably can run faster than a knight. You begin firing upon the big thing, and it lets out a wail. Not a war horn. A biological like wail and turns at you. It moves quick. Even for it's size and it is able to move quick.You fire again. It charges hard and fast. "WHAT IS WITH THIS THING!" You shout, because the comms are acting weird. "It - .. bi....Tita..""What?! Your garbled lancer"BIO..AN""A WHAT?!"And upon closer examination the word becomes obviousBio-Titan"BIO TITAN! BE CAREFUL! I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE AND HAD ONLY HEARD OF IT IN BOOKS!""GREAT!" You shout back. Your weapons, are seeming to really hurt it, but it is also angering it. Machine Spirits usually are able to tolerate pain and steel is better than flesh for much, this thing is a hybrid. It brings down a great fist towards you and it misses.You begin your harassments campaign again, And lancer is over the comms"YOU ARE WORKIN SLOW AINT YA!" Lancer hits the titan from the side with a huge hit and run. "Shut up! Good things take time!" You shout back at him. "They outnumbered us two to one, I get it. Still this is a bio titan, we gotta be careful.">> Lure it towards the enemy lines continue firing>> Use your main weapon to deal with it as Lancer assist. >> Try to off balance the beast. >> Write in

Your legion comes to line. "LEGIO!" You shout "PARATI!" You shout and there is a silence. Nearby the chainbreakers make some loud noise, and you think they have started to take up commands similar to how you have done. Which is good, it's better than what you thought was controlled chaos being unleashed upon the battlefield. One of your best legionaries comes up with the banner of your people. "You ready?""Aye Sir.""You sure?""For the legion? Always.""LEGIO! TODAY WE HELP RETAKE AND BATTLE ON A NEW PLANET!" You let out to a set of three stomps with spears. It almost drowns out the Hakka that is being performed by the Chain Breakers nearby. "WE NEED TO GET TO THAT FORTRESS. THERE IS A WHOLE SMALL ARMY AHEAD OF US, BUT THE KNIGHTS ARE HELPING WITH THE BIGGER PROBLEMS!" You shout as you step about your men there is a little laughter as they can see the clear progress the knights have made. You then step to the lead and you grab the standard and banner. You see the two knights fight in the distance. One, clearly piloted by Arona simply due to tactics, trips the greater enemy knight and proceeds to attack with impunity. "THEIR LEADER HAS FALLEN. THEY WILL ATTEMPT TO RETALLIATE. BE CAREFUL." You shout as you power up the weapon of the banner, technically something you aren't supposed to be able to do yet, however- considering you are the ranking officer in a mission of conquest for your people. Your men look stoic and solid. Then a thought occurs. You would show these judges real order."WE WILL MARCH STRAIGHT UP TO THAT FORTRESS, IN FORMATION, AND TAKE IT FROM THEM. WE WILL SHOW THEM A REAL FORCE FOR ORDER." And some of the men nod, and what Kolinaisi would say as 'feeling the mana in the air' you can sense the men's spirit rise. "TALIS EST COMODUM MILES BARBATI!" You shout and you power up the shields and armor given to you, and those around you do likewise. You stomp the banner in a show and a shockwave emanates from it. The chainbreakers finish their hakka and begin their assault. "BANDO SEQUUTE!" You shout and everyone readies their weapons then you turn to face your men, who look ready as ever, not a single look of fear on their faces then you call the order. "EQUALITER AMBULA!" You shout. You are going to conduct this battle in such a way to be shocking to the black judges. "LEGIO AETERNA!" You shout"AETERNA VICTRIX!" They respond. The troops follow a cadence behind you as they follow behind you. You march ahead, with a shocking act of discipline compared to the chainbreakers, a more fluid force nearby. As you slowly advance and call the cadence you conduct your first strike with the banner, striking a black judge and not losing stride whilst continuing the cadence.
>>5319780You can see it and you are almost tempted to smile, where it not for how unsurprising it was. The chainbreakers are like the water of their homeworld, crashing and fluid. There wasn't so much a formation as they understood the actions of their fellows and acted accordingly. Your legion, moved as one. On line. Shouting a cadence as you marched forward. After the Hakka, this probably caused some of the black judges controllers a great deal of confusion. But not for one. A larger one, a "prosecutor" turned to face you as you continued the cadence as you can hear the feet of your legion marching in time as your voice rises. You slow your march, and the legion does so behind you "AD FULKON!" You say as the cadence shouts back and they aim their weapons. The black judge is either confused or shocked as it powers up it's weapon. "IGNEM!" You shout "HU!" They respond and the entire legion including you, fires their EMP 'lance' at the same time. Disrupting the beast preventing it from firing. "LEGIO AETERNA!" You roar"AETERNA VICTRIX" The legion roars back with another volley of fire, bringing the gigantic hulk down. You then smash the wreck with the banner impaling the wrecked armor and pulling it out in quick order, fast enough to get back into cadence."AMI FULKON!" You roar. And many more of the powerful walkers turn towards your line. And moreThe chain breakers that noticed, seem to be pretty impressed including Kai, who manages to nod to you, before joining the not so distant fray. >> ORDINEM SERVATE! March up to the next big walker and bring it down as a formation, as a legion. >> SIVE PUGNAS SIVE SEQUES INIMICUM SIVE AEQUALIS FACIES, NON FORTE MINARE UT NE SPARGES TU SUUM ORDINEM! Order your men to fire upon enemies freely, while maintaining formation, but not breaking it, and not loosing sight of you.>> PERCUTE JUNGE FULCO! Charge, meet in the Fulkon.

"Frank begin designation of ground targets and striking, first company follow protocol. Angron, you know your men better than I ever could, lead them towards that heart there but strike at anything that Frank takes down or designates. Tybro. Well, I guess just continue to do- whatever it is you were doing." You say Angron nods grabs a horn from his side and blows on it loudly. Tybro just nods, hops into the walker and charges off towards a larger vehicle. This- is new. You have fought through subterfuge, through careful planning, sabotage and every conceivable way to make the fight as easy for your army as possible. This is a straight up fight. One that while there was a plan for, there was no actual way to plan for. This was new.The feeling. The hopping on a stolen war machine firing at the enemy as air support from your allies helped your brother be able to- He is lifting something as big as small titan. This isn't normal. Yet it feels good. The straightforwardness was refreshing. With Angron distracted, and you fight. You fight as a primarch. You use a spear, one of the ones from the Rangda, to decapitate one of your foes. Normally you are the hidden blade. The Dagger in the dark. But now, you are part of hundred of different blades. And nobody can see you. Except you. >> Test the limits of your capacity.

>>5324610He came alone, but I like your style, and will include it in the next go round. Time to change things up. The walker is preparing to perform a counter charge. You don't exactly find this as favorable as your normal work, yet- there is something exhilarating about this. There is a vehicle nearby, and while it is tempting, you quickly recognize something. While you have noticed most of your brothers are good at finding strengths building defenses, you have had a knack for somethings that most would overlook. For example in this case: the rangda crew fired heavy gravity cannon has a manual firing mechanism and can easily be unhooked via the loose cotter pin. And as one of the few whom have dealt with the Rangda successfully, you know that the gravity weapons have a bad habit of overloading due to the finicky nature of the machine itself, and a runaway gun can quickly turn into a tiny black hole. While your father, nor the cult mechanicus are fond of this tactic, it is afterall a xenos weapon. The run up is fast, nobody notices, you then dismount the gun, fire enough shots to begin the process, which actually hurts the walker a significant amount, and throw it. You take your simple plasma pistol and fire it at the weapon, still in the air and the cascade failure begins, destroying the entire rangda column on the walker. It brings a smile to your face. "You alpha?" "Indeed?""We are agents of Rho? He asked us to stick by you when we found you." The two, look like technobarbarian centurians from terra, which makes you wonder- if Rho- no doubt Roboute Guilliman, his own troops look vaguely techno barbarian in nature- what is Kolinaisi like?--"Aya!" You shout getting to the armory as multiple walkers begin firing upon you."You said your society was more primal brother!" You say avoiding other words "It was, I sped things along. Also the black judges are not." Perturabo says firing off a volley from his gauntlet. "What is in here?" You ask and Perturabo gives a puzzled look, then look back inside after a few more heavy rounds, that are incredibly annoying pass by. Your honor guard seems to be preparing to set up some kind of warding. "Well, most of the armory is still intact. They didn't take any of the atomics at least, but I think they took MRLS wagon""The What-"Multiple Rocket Launcher System Wagon. It's an ancient design that is specifically made for disabling enemy armor and infantry""I've heard enough. Cover me." You dart in before Perturabo can give an affirmative or the girls come into to support. Your path is awkward as a drunken child, but you do not get hit by any of the rounds as you are darting about. "DONT HURL THE GRENADES HERE! YOU MAY DISRUPT THE ATOMICS." Perturabo shouts as you reach for a grenade. Right. Atomics.
>>5324867You fire rapidly at the giant armored walker that seems to be protecting a much smaller sleeker piece of armor. The EMP blasts are doing something- but these suits are on what seems like a manual mode. They slow down but the others continue. So you fire at all of them. Their attacks slow, but continue. "Do these things have a low power mode?" You ask, as you would normally sense for machine spirits but feel nothing in the room, except a powerful controlled enemy spirit. "They could theoretically operate with no power? If the judges are powerful enough and have been feeding off enough people." Perturabo says providing covering fire. You sigh. The armor is a marvel. It will be awful to destroy it. "I know what you are thinking Primarch." The smaller suit says. "You are wondering why are they protecting the smallest more technologically advanced suit. Well I will tell you, I am activating this worlds faro-" You shoot the smaller suit from a quick dive to another barrier. WHY DO THEY ALWAYS DO THIS MONOLOGUING TO YOU. "Clever. but I have EMP Shielding. Sadly you disrupted my mimick device. I bet you are wondering what ""Mate you are about the fifth least impressive AI tomfoolery that I have seen this week." You say firing at the now easy to identify AI. "I wasn't mistaken! You are initiated! Well then! I suppose it's time to end this masquerade! I am CAP-03, pleased to meet you, prepare to die." The being then steps away from the console that seems to have it's spirit shackled as it humms a sorrowful song. The AI's spirit is strong. Stronger than URs was before recent events. You can also sense warding, it will be very difficult to manipulate or even get a read on. And you instantly understand why when all the walkers suddenly change color and turn to face you and fire at once. You move fast. "PERTURABO, I COULD USE A LITTLE BIT OF HELP." You say half being funny half serious. "YOU WOULDN'T NEED MY HELP IF YOU WEREN'T CONSIDERING CAPTURING ALL THE ARMOR.""MATE I KNOW YOU ARE TRYING TO BE MORE OPEN ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL BUT I NEED MORE CONSTRUCTIVE IDEAS.""CONSTRUCTIVE... RIGHT!" Perturabo runs in at a speed that would make you want to challenge him to a foot race and grabs a few random things from the shelves and creates the most inelegant kludged together weapon you have ever seen and fires it at the AI.Three things fly around and a magnetic net pulls it to the ground. You quickly move to the otherside of the room as you senses it's spirit diminished around the console and unshackle it. Which doesn't help much when once again all the walkers fire multiple bursts at you including an explosive round you can only partially dodge due to the way the explosion worked.
>>5324868"Clever, priiii..--march, simple high power MAGNETS, would cause problems, for abou-t" It breaks its chains in such a way that had it not been an ass.ONEMinute." It says in a way that underscores it's anger quite well, but that still doesn't prevent you from digging your trusty daggers into it. "I see what it talked to you.. The being's head spins around to face you, along with most of it's body seemlesly in a way that would make UR jealous. It then kicks at you at such speed your instincts are only fast enough for you to let it deflect off you so you can pull out your daggers and slice again, and, it looks like the being is glitching before reassembling. It's as if it is made up of trillions of tiny machines and a skeleton with some 'organs' "Those kind of metals, those, should not be in your hands, they do not belong to your kind. I sense another that you have become friendly with.. The old goat herd. How are they? It asks in a somehow detectible condescending tone as you strike, as suddenly a strange field comes down over everything and the walkers fall to the floor as the girls enter the room firing full force. "Again with this EMP stuff! If your whole outside army is armed with this that would work for the main forces, but against me you are just starting to annoy me. It says as it fires back an explosive pulse from around it that would send shocking energy towards everyone else. Would. You sneer as the electricity comes to you and empowers you and your tattoos begin to glow. "WHAT IS IT NOW" The being says as you smirk. >> "Now we actually fight." Charge the being and strike it draining some of it's power. >> "You'll see" Strike at it fast enough to bypass the the machines and try to grasp at it's 'skeleton.'>> Say nothing and strike at what seems to be a primary organ, testing it's other weaknesses. >> "I Gift You a Mokka" place a magnet on your last of Meera's grenades and shove it into it's body. >> Write in

So updates before post later. I have gotten a bonus from work. It will cover the damage by the deer. Yay. I am also apparently on the short list for being rapid promotion yay. Problem is I don't really want it as I love my position and would rather just take the imminent pay raise. Fourth of July weekend has been busy, so I have less freedom than normal just like when I was in the military. I am sorry my ability to post on a daily basis has been hampered. Part of my life is taking care of the Waifu, and she hasn't been that well lately. Additionally I have been writing non quest books, and one test chapter is at an editors. They like it enough that I am going to write three other test chapters from two other books. If this ever gets to the point where the quest is too much for me to handle I will gracefully find another writer to take over and not just abandon it. I would beg Malal, but he has a lot of stuff going on, or Mechanicus QM but he has a good mainline quest also. If anyone has a good idea or volunteers as my secondary please, respond to me in this thread and I will be happy to work something out. I worked hard on the story and don't want to give it up.
>>5326885I'm not cut to take over old man, but maybe you can ask over at qtg?And posting everyday is kind of rare on qst anyway, so no nees to worry unless you really have no time.
"I gift you, a Mokka" You say placing a few magnets onto the last of Meera's special grenades and quickly pull the pin and attach it by thrusting inside the rogue AI."Oh how cute! You thrust a magnet on to my primary c-c-c-c-c-c-control corrre. WHAT." "I may have attached a ClF3 grenade to it." you say as, once again the being begins to glitch and it's body goes all over the place, and attempts to react quickly. And it causes quite the sight. The Core is on fire, and it seems to caused it to reveal the other primary organs as the tiny little machines, which are quickly identified as nanomachine clusters, seem to flee from the fiery center causing the being to look like a comical mockery of it's former self. You chuckle a little at it's new appearance"Wd-w-dw--dw--w--wha-at-at-at-at is so funny Ape?""You are, that goat herder wouldn't have fallen for that trick and wouldn't have let me get that close.""T-t--t-tt-typical Human. E-ven- WI-th w-h-at Y-ou ARE, you are still so aggre-VATINGLY hUMAN!" The being begins a very, desperate attack. "Brother! I shall deal with the armor and the fail trigger that has been set off, you finish off the AI." Fail Trigger?"What?""FOCUS ON THE AI AND LET ME HANDLE THIS." Perturabo seems to be working through, a lot of emotions right now. The being, is managing to attack you while on fire, with the same fury as a Rak'Gol. Only it is actually still controlled and hyper intelligent. Worse, you may have caused it to become more dangerous. That ClF3 if it gets on you, is insanely hard to fix the damage of, even for you. Before you let it be made into grenades you studied what it could do, and you are still not happy with it being stored inside the ship. Just a drop of the 'liquid' when it is in that state will kill a person with cancer in a matter of weeks unless it is treated right then and even then it's a crap shoot. Even with your enhanced body, you would still have to perform a lot of treatment just to fix it before it would go through your system. As the AI strikes at you the other point is obvious. The fire. The fire cannot be put out, and sometimes can burn in the vacuum of space, depending on what it is burning, as it self oxidizes, though that isn't the correct term. Now the fight becomes interesting. It cannot touch you without careful action by you. What is your next move?>> Surgical action. Perform surgery, removing 'organs' of the AI >> Syphon out the electricity, surely it's defenses must be done now>> Fire more EMP weaponry at it. >> Fast physical strikes with your daggers, just be careful to avoid the fire. >> Write in

>>5330636There are three that I am working on, and I have multiple test readers and editors. I have to juggle with work, which makes me feel like the fucking captain from tin tin saying "BOY WHAT A WEEK." when it's only Wednesday but I didn't post yesterday and it would be more along the lines of "HOLY FUCK WHAT A WEEK LADS." Anyways sorry for truancy, relationship, work, holiday, grilling etc. -"I'd rather have Kolinaisi operating on me than operating against me."Horus Lupercal. -The AI you see before you, has a basic anatomy. Weird. As you dodge and parry the fiery being, it's time to put your surgeon skills to the test. You move ya hands fast and constantly go at him with one of the daggers while trying to pry, the being is not quite sure what to make of your actions, and that helps. The problem is the only way you can siphon off any electricity, mana is by actually touching it with how strong their spirit actually is. It's impossible otherwise. After what feels like forever with activity, and loud noises coming from Perturabo and his area, not to mention the sound of ancient machine spirits, stirring, you finally grab the first 'organ' and siphon power from it before detaching it. It glitches as you put the organ in the pouch with little fanfare. It then redoubles it's efforts, and as you attack you notice that it's bit that you hit has trouble staying together, making it easier to remove the next organ and siphon off more. When you do this, it does notice and begins to attack you and weakly hits, you realizing that it's strikes are not as potent as they once were removing it and putting it in your pouch. The machine spirit has also weakened, not to the point where you can actually do what you think would be the easy route, but seeing as there are a few more organs, you have a decision to make.There are three organs left, you think if you pull one, it may defeat it. Which do you pull now?>> Pull the one that is thrumming, and seems barely in synch with reality>> Pull the one that seems stable plane and with out feature>> Pull the one that has many holes, and seems to be disabled for whatever reason>> Write in (Try to pull them all at once, pull two, rearrange them, or something else I don't know I can't honestly conceive of half the stuff you guys write in to begin with.)__Alpha, whoever he is, found his stride really quick. Good, you'll need it. There are four very large beings, not Ogryn, but some other wild looking creature. Among them, as if by some trickery or warp nonsense whatever Kolinaisi called it, appears one with great wings, the face of a bat, and it looks very strong. And it is looking at you, it then smirks. "Good. This act of revenge will be quick." The being says it then lets out a powerful wail, and part of the city wall, breaks. Thankfully there is the shield. Many of your men are on the ground, and almost everyone was effected.
>>5330764Save two.Tybro, whom is fighting another huge walker, and - maybe dismounting his walker to- probably 'commandeer' another one. And Alpha. Who is firmly standing his ground and holding up two that fell as some Rhangda appears to have taken notice. Tybro is standing because of the mudAlpha is not wearing it. Stranger still the giant bat creature reveals a freaking set of whips out of his ass probably and faces you. "ANGRON. I HAVE COME TO CLAIM AGAINST TRANSGRESSION OF YOUR KIND. ANSWER THIS CHALLENGE, OR COME WITH ME, EITHER WAY PREPARE TO FIGHT." It yells. You smirk. And give the salute for gladitorial combat. "SALUTE. AND PREPARE TO DIE." You shout back. The being charges at you, using the weapon you know the most about countering, while you wield your favored weapon. The fool. The absolute idiot.>> Counter charge. >> Alert Alpha.>> Forget fighting fair, have Frank do an airstrike on this thing>> Take a defensive stance>> Use your axe's range weapon against it, something is strange about this thing, and it should not be taken lightly.>> Write in

>>5330764>> Pull the one that is thrumming, and seems barely in synch with realityI don't think I can google-fu my way out of this surgery, so I'm going for what I think each one does.The phasing one may help the AI do quantum computing, and maybe it's involved with that tech that made tge timeline diverge.The plain one seems like an anchor, so it can destabilize him and send him to the shasow realm, or make him intangible and we would have to fight on two dimensions at once.The disabled one might be important and it's just faking being disabled, or it can be a red herring or just a redundancy.So I'm going for the fun one.>>5330767>> Use your axe's range weapon against it, something is strange about this thing, and it should not be taken lightly.Another khrave?

"Abbadon, what on Terra is that thing." Horus said on the approach. "-I"The being stepped out of nothing. Wings of Midnight. Ears of a bat. And it's neck popped. Then the being spoke High Gothic. "Let's get this over with." It spat out. But Horus felt something. A spark. Something different, something else ignited. "Men. Take to the field. Leave the big one to me." Horus said. He knew what it was. He didn't know how. He knew it was a Khrave, though he had only briefly heard of them, or rather this was one of their more advanced forms. Maybe it was his Father. Maybe it was something else. He gripped his mace. "So Be it." The beast said with a smirk and ran at Horus. And Horus counter charged. _You realize what's quickly about to happen, so you use the range of the axe, which feels always less than honorable, but when an opponent can literally just walk on to a battlefield out of nowhere, it's probably the right response. As you are about to pull the trigger the being smugly grins. As do you"OI ALPHA!" causing the beast to hesitate long enough to realize that Alpha, whom you now know is far more than meets the eye, Is already not only behind the being but on it with his gun. "Not this shit again" The beast says and flaps its wings which causes it to get hit hard by both your long blast, which seems to be slowed somehow from spreading."ADRIATHICS? HOW DID IT-" And then the monster turns to see Alpha with some strange device to which it sneers. It proceeds to use Alpha as some kind of boost planting himself on him to propel himself at you, whilst almost knocking over Alpha who stands sure at his feet then fires upon the being again, carefully advancing. === Rare opportunity Event === = NOT AS PLANNED = >> "Alpha!"

>>5333435"I am sorry friend, I should go into the city alone. A pariah going with you would only make things worse." You tell him and he nods, and goes off to his tent to sleep. You spend a few hours of the night doing some muscle exercises. Getting stronger. And occasionally reading some of the older texts that you were given on debate, business, and a simple book on poetry. The problem with getting stronger, is that it takes greater acts to strengthen you muscle groups now. You have purposely built equipment that is brought along on the caravan to help you increase in strength, but a lot of it is exercise until muscle failure. If it comes to it, you have decided that you must be stronger enough to lift the entire launch system to get your people from this planet. After a brief rest, you wake up at dawn, brief your companions on the parts you will need to get (maybe they will be there, but all the parts to the ship or material to build the parts are on planet, it's just a matter of finding them) and what is, supposedly in the city. If you have to steal things you decided that it would be better to do it at nightfall. The walk into the city is always awkward. You stand taller than all others, and you always gain attention because of that, and the pariah robes you wear. It's a paradox for most, being instantly drawn to your height, then forced to shun you due to what you are. Most of the trader castes will deal with you, but relic traders almost always refuse to. You then come across a familiar face doing simple camel trading"Josufus! You serpent! You slithered away from saying good-bye from our last gathering!" You say as you approach with a smile. "Lorgar! You caught me! I should have seen you coming a mile away but you caught me busy conducting business!" He says coming up to give a hug, which you reciprocate. "This city is a well of items we need, some of them actually traded a few for the camels I am selling!" He whispers. "Really? Can I see your ledger and compare it to mine?" You ask and he nods. The Ledger- was your whole clans most important personal item, next to what was collected. Every 4 months there would be a return to the oasis where they would be turned in, compiled on the master ledger, and then redistributed with what remained. Progress was much better in the past two returns- since you took leadership. Theoretically you could complete it all this cycle! Then the great work could begin. Upon examination, your eyes widen. Josufus, had not only collected many items, but some thought not to have duplicates. He then had much of the material. All for trading camels. Which was odd. "All this from camels?" You ask"Also some light smuggling." he whispers. "Smuggling what?" You ask
>>5333438"Herbs, Drugs, Incense, things for their vision quests and other items that they can't get here because of an embargo from another city in the north.""If they catch you, they will hang you! You must be careful." You say"I know that, I am only telling you because I need to off load much of what I have collected. What are you seeking, may I see your ledger?" He asks and you nod. He goes through the list making apprasing clicks and then a whistle"You actually got that? How did you get a reactor node?" He asks."It was literally lying in a ditch." You say telling the full truth of the situation, which was hard to believe on it's own. "Unsurprising. I am sure someone cast it off when they didn't see any holy markings on it." He says and you scoff"What you know its true." He says"I do not have contempt for them. I know that they will be capable of seeing that these gods they made only cause them hardship and they will see value in things eventually. Some of them can do quite a few many great things if they just try.""Bah. I spit on their four gods. I spit on their prophecy. I spit on their leader Erebus and his orders." Josufus, who has always been a hardliner says. "Zeal does need tempering sometimes friend." You say and he rolls his eyes. Then looks at the ledger, then does a quick calculation and must realize what you did a little while ago"We are only missing a few major items! And one is in this city! We can potentially get it tonight." He says with a grin"Oh? What would that be?" You ask and he points. And at the top of a two hundred meter tall obelisk you see it. "You have got to be making a jest." You say"No they really used the mainline transmitter beacon an icon atop a 200m obelisk." He says as you sigh. >> "We get it tonight, while they are distracted with whatever feast they have." >> "We wait until pre dawn, during the quiet hours- it may mean we both have to leave the city in a hurry, but it is the more sure bet to get it.">> "Do you still have those hybrid canvas packs I made? I may have an idea." >> "We wait until they have their retribution festival at the other part of the city two days from now, while they are all in the other side of town, we climb up, grab it and leave." >> Write in

Y'all ever wonder if Koli is flying too close to the sun and is handling WAY more than he can chew?
>>5334881As long as we win Olympia, run back to give old man his meds and go help Nuceria, we should be fine, both the Imperium and the Mechanicus are coming to reinforce afterall.

Tensions lay thick in the air as you shout the order. "SIVE PUGNAS SIVE SEQUES INIMICUM SIVE AEQUALIS FACIES, NON FORTE MINARE UT NE SPARGES TU SUUM ORDINEM!"The lines stagger and form, firing on each side as commanded. The motion forward is steady, orderly, and organic. Moving like a proper legion. You point and command, guns fire like a storm disabling the now rampant enemies that have to compete with two uncontested knights, the chain breakers and your men. A few enemies dare to fire, one round grazing past your head, offering up a single cut. One of your men looks at you then looks at the armored suit. "The poor bastard" He utters under his breath. You take up the banner and charge it, firing a mighty bolt of lightning that arcs from the banner to the instantly disabled suit and to a few others. "Your father will like that." Cicero says firing covering your back. "I think he would." You respond making another shot then waving to another salvo. You advance the column slowly doing this slow methodical march. It needs to do be done faster. The unit moves stages ranks shields, fires, and advances simultaneously. Your small "legion" would be the pride first company of any unit in any army. The enemy unable to attack as your unit moves the way it does. "MOVE! NEMO DEMITTAT!" You shout and the men pick up the pace, you have to be the eye of the storm. Your scorn looking at the chaotic movements of your enemy, that is only just now, realizing your ultimate threat begins to turn towards you instead of the chain breakers. You can see Kai. He looks a bit disappointed that the enemy is charging towards you. Only momentarily though, his men have to focus down on one of the larger suits. Or maybe they are running away from Perturabo's "Ball." Which has caused by far some of the most absurd carnage you have ever seen a war machine do, considering it just rolls over anything it cant shoot at it with it's obscene cannons. Not to mention whomever is controlling that thing is one with the machine and is basically just wrecking havoc on the battlefield to such an unbridled degree it would probably make your brother blush. The Ball, which was just simple unpainted reflective chrome with various guns and tracks, and some sort of weird generated field that deflects almost any attack. The ball itself is brilliant. Whomever is piloting this object of 'Art' as Perturabo called it, was absolutely bloody in efficiency or markedly insane. The ball was causing more panic than the knights, because the knights you could see. The Ball, was, despite being chrome and reflective, the right size to move around the battlefield and hide behind wreckage, and the dingy air in the area made it less apparent.
>>5336094You felt great that it was on your side. Only momentarily though, as it has routed some of the larger suits.Two of which turn to face your unit. >> "MEDII PARTITIS AD DIFALANGIAM" Have your unit split in half as you direct both to fire upon the giants>> "PERCUTE!" Charge on them as a unit. >> "TALIS EST COMODUM MILES BARBATI" Do not fire en masse until it is too late for the enemy to retreat. >> Write in (BONUS IF IN LATIN)

With a surgeons deft skills you pull the thrumming organ that is barely in synch with reality. You have to fight single handedly while doing it but you free it. BEST POSSIBLE CHOICEAnd the AI falls to the ground and a trillion little tiny machines fall with it, along with the other "organs". You think about a moment for it, and you realize your best chance to actually help out UR, find a safe containment for your scary box, or maybe even deal with the Necron. However you realize that, this thing is dangerous. And might be best destroyed. -RARE OPPORTUNITY>> Keep the parts and clean up everything > Then give to perturabo (y/N) >> Destroy it all. >> Keep only certain peices-Perturabo looks at you as he tightens up something on a weapon, then nods. He then walks over to his sister and family and talks to them. You don't listen, but you let your honor guard run up to you and hug you. The comfort is nice. But you know there is not much time. Perturabo looks up to you and nods. "We shall go out the front gate. It will shock and surprise the enemy and they will not expect it." Perturabo says"That seems a bit- dangerous. Fun. But dangerous.""Speaking tactically they are all going to be turned to face the army that is out there and will not expect us to come from behind and destroy them.""Can the gate be closed fast enough for us to cross without the enemy, storming the keep?" You ask looking at your brother who nods. "It can I designed the new gate. It will be fast enough." He says and you nod. "Are there any weapons here or any troops that can help us?" You ask and he looks to his younger brothers who look at him then at you. "We- we can fight." One of them says. They seem nervous. "They seem a bit young." You say and perturabo shrugs and thumbs outside"Young Nasi is piloting my creation. They are no younger then him." He says, and that was something you were not informed of. Nasi is supposed to be back on the ship. However, if he wanted to participate, it is the nature of the contract. That being said- he is a mere boy. "He requested to do that?" You ask realizing time is of the essence and there isn't really time for you to be upset at your brother about this right now. "He did. He was also the best pilot." Perturabo states plainly. "If they wish to defend there home from invaders, who am I to say no. Your planet, your call. You take the lead." You say and perturabo seems a bit conflicted by how you stated it, then he looks as if he has a sudden realization, then smiles and nods. -
>>5338216Well Perturabo- it is your call after all. How do you proceed.>> Your brothers, despite their enthusiasm would make for terrible soldiers at this time. Better to have them man long guns and defenses on the turrets and wreak havoc at range so as not to upset your recently widowed mother and sister. >> Your brothers, due to their lack of skill and training, would be ideal to pilot at least some of these armored contraptions soon as you and Kolinaisi tweak them to not hurt them. >> Your brothers wish to fight? Let them. They have fighting spirit, and wish to accomplish something. Give them weapons and armor but keep them close by. Who knows, they may be more helpful than expected. >> They need to stay here and defend their mother and sister.

So-I have written myself into a weird place. There will be no post tonight, however we are at a point where A decision does need to be made. Sorry there were not as many posts this thread. As a result I need a bit of participation:We have had what, after tallying the direction of votes and general attitude a bit of a tie developing;So The votes I need since it's a weird thingWhich primarch do you want introduced next that we haven't seen:> Write ins onlyWhich Primarch do you want to see next> Lorgar> Konrad Kurze> Magnus
>>5340189>My boy the Khan of Khans> Konrad KurzeI want to see if the plan worked
>>5340189> Konrad Kurze
>>5340189how have we seen so far.> Konrad Kurze
>>5340286>>5340356And which primarch we haven't seen yet do you want? Or is Jagathai good for you too?
>>5340393that's why I was asking who we've seen so I can narrow down my choices The Khan is boring, bite me.
>>5340189> The man The Myth THE LEGEND Sanguinius>Konrad Kurze
>>5340393I would look forward to see any of them so I was going to leave it to the other anons to choose someone
>>5340398We seen Konrad, Lorgar, Pert, Bob, Alpha, Angron, Magnus, Horus and Magnus. Last two just a very quick cutaway though and Magnus just in the soul surgery.It's why I like him, in a universe of melodrama and daddy issues, dude knows exactly what he likes and does it without giving a shit about anything else.You know the setting is fucked when space Gengis Khan is the simple man of the bunch.
The next one, has been chosen, and will be in the chapter. Perturabo says something to his brothers. The gather arms, and in an awkward move that looks like something he hasn't experienced, they hug him before departing. He then gives, what you hope isn't the new type of weapon that was discovered after digging through the file library, to his sister. "I love you bo." Is all you can hear her whisper before Perturabo puts his hand on her head and walks up to you then looks at Deliah then to you. "Brother, I am ready." He tells you. You nod. The exit out of the palace is less byzantine, considering he is just smashing through the "superfluous" walls. Your honor guard keeps up and when you exit outside-You are shocked. It looks like a complete route. The knights alone probably would have done it, but the warmachine perturabo built, Roboute's Legion and the Chain breakers made it a route. Likely due to your strategy of the ships covering there wasn't much interference. You see the many machines that are on the ground, along with the corpses of troops. You see the enemy, deciding to literally surround and attack Roboute's unit, and it is going miserably. They are dying in droves as his legion moves around in such a way that it's almost confusing to watch. It's brilliant tactically. You look for your chain breakers, and you see something that angers you enough that Erihapti rubs up against you knowing your emotion. The chain-breakers have lost men. Kai looks like he has severe injuries. They are being attacked from all sides by a much more superior unit, and you instantly realize. It is another AI. Worse, you see UR on the ground, and you can barely sense the mighty machine spirit of UR. The Being turns to you, and you realize it is a hybrid- man and AI and it turns to face you before knocking Kai to the ground. Before you can even get a good sprinter stance, the giant foot of a knight comes down upon it, and suddenly the surrounding unit falls to the ground. "Brother, assist Roboute and his legion." He nods, and you don't so much feel your speed as you run, you are just running as fast as you can push your body and you are almost instantly there. You have very limited time: You can see a few chain breakers are already dead. Your uncle is badly wounded, there are a few that are dying and bleeding out. UR , you can actually sense and you hear the whishper of their machine spirit. They wanted to lure you out. Their is a faction of remaining AI, they wanted you, you saw the motive force. Get me back on the ship and I should be able to help you reassemble me, I still look like a human in robust armor. If I don't make it, take care of my goats. I need to enter low power mode to assist you later. 5 chain breakers are dead. Your uncle was able to stand against the prosecutor general. I believe that qualifies for big man status per your customs.
>>5341719Gella runs up behind you panting and out of breath. "Don't.. do.. that almost teleporty.. run.. we will barely have energy to help.. you operate just keeping up.." She pants out as Meera follows shortly behind "Yana and Deliah?" "Assisting Perturabo." Meera says"Rob doesn't need help" Gellah says having given your brother a pet name and you look up at her briefly surprised by the fact that she gave him a pet name in front of you causing Meera to snort. "Girls." You say and they nod Gellah bringing out meds to assist you. "Aya Nephew. Your fancy AI friend got whupped pretty hard. I had to fight the guy who whupped em.""How long ya know that?" You ask him"Eh. Long enough. Secret's safe among the men. They a chain breaker too. We need to get tattoos on their armor after this." He says and you can immediately see the sucking chest wound, the broken bone that is waaaaay to close to his heart, and the pieces of metal sticking out. " Uncle hush, ya gotta suckin wound. easy""If it were Tybro-""Id be tellin him too despite him bein almost as big as me. Easy." You respond and he nods. You can't use any of the fancy equipment up on the ship because it will take to long, you have to work fast. This is life or death. Choose the right steps to save your uncle as the girls go to work on the others. __First you must address the most address the most dangerous problem. The sucking chest wound.

No screw ups. >> put in a valve just in case of pressure build up>> Clear the bone fragments from the site. >> Administer pain killers. >> Wrap the entire wounded area. >> remove all the armor- at this point it's not really helping anymore, but it probably saved his life. >> Give him some quick pep to keep him alert. >> Localize anesthesia on the wounded area. >> Write in ( Because you may actually have a bit of medical knowledge for a sucking chest wound that the old man intentionally left out that may come in to play later or you are a medical professional and the old mans military first aid training is dated.)__
>>5341720"THIS NIGHT HAUNTER. HE ACTUALLY GONNA SHOW?" The one eyed woman with the pink mohawk asked aloud. She was next to a hooded figure with strange graffiti on robes that practically glowed, next to him was a man in an immaculate outfit with two red hands and a large scar across the left side of his face. "Do be silent. He will show. You do not have to yell." The man said. " So I see you two showed up." Another man said walking up to the roof top. "I guess we all trust our mutual acquaintance huh?" The new comer said as a few others climbed up the ladder behind him. "I don't trust him. I trust his greed." The robed individual, with a voice that was staccato and alien compared to the others. "Why are you even here? You were invited? You have no dog in this fight, you are just going to leave on the next ship out." "May. May not. Pends on how it goes here." "YA'LL COWARDS. SPECIALLY YOU" The woman with the mohawk spat at the robbed individual who made a hand gesture and knocked her back with some force. "oOOooOH YA GOT YA SCARY PSYKER POWERS BUT CANT FIGHT LIKE A -" And the man was on her in a hairsbreadth with a very fine blade the robe was knocked back to reveal a very strange helmet and her lifting her above the ground. "Can't even show ya face huh?!" She spat as he dropped her. "Not. Worthy." The being said. They looked around and suddenly he was there. "You actually showed. Your messenger told us, you would provide us a solution to your- " The man said and the robbed being was visibly shaking and making a strange noise as Kurze looked at him. "NO. IT CANNOT BE." The being said grabbing a strange weapon which Kurze threw a simple knife into the hand holding the weapon. "As I was to inform you. I have. Here is Enough Gold, Money, and Drugs. This is for you to leave my area alone." Kurze said. "This- this will cover what damage you have done" The man said and the new comer, along with a few others gathered nodded. "NAH. HE NEEDS TO DIE." The woman in the mohawk said"AGREED." Said the robed figure. The two were knocked unconscious by some of the others who entered shortly behind. "Some of us are more civilized." The man in the immaculate suite said. "SO your range?" The man said. "I have it nearby, I actually couldn't get the map up here with the gelt. I will go get it."
