    Alright, so, after the last mission, there was pretty much no way to deny that Grendel was ever so slightly different from the usual Acolyte, what with being a librarian that kills big-ass daemons and xenos like little bitches. So, after we came back and got debriefed from our last mission, we got summoned to the Inquisitorial Holdings on Scintilla, for 'Further Debriefing'. We did not like the sound of this, and were getting paranoid. But we went, since the request was delivered by a full platoon of Inquisitorial Stormtroopers and no less than THREE Inquisitors (we did not know any of them by reputation or name). But once we got there, we were split apart and put in individual rooms, all of which had, among other things, a chirurgeon, a tech-priest, an Interrogator and various mechanical implements, some of which were recognized as Pict Recorders and Excruciator Kits. Oh damn, this did not sound fun.

    So, the GM plays the role of the Interrogator and crew for each player one by one, and the questions are both relieving, partially expected and at leat partly disturbing in focus: Grendel. They just keep asking questions about Grendel, whether there were any details of his exploits we failed to mention, whether he evidenced signs of corruption and such. We answer truthfully, most of us erring on the side of giving more support to Grendel than is strictly necessary (he did save our lives multiple times, after all) with the exception of Cromwell, Nihilius and Inez. Cromwell just answered the questions as accurately as possible (other than a general dislike of the ecclesiarchy, he does not go in for having strong emotional investment in others), Nihilius was snide and tried to be dismissive of Grendel's accomplishments (the way he is about everyone other than himself), and Inez was getting pissed off at the potential accusations of corruption and by proxy heresy being levied at her old friend.

    So, we make our way through all these dialogue sections, with only the occasional role being used (Dakka trying to intimidate his Interrogater in to letting him leave on the basis of him 'looking scrawny and therefore weak' and getting bitchslapped, etc) until finally we get to the last interviewee: Grendel himself. Now while all the rest of the party got pretty much a batch set in terms of rooms and 'interviewers', Grendel got slightly different treatment. He was in a much larger room, all three of the new Inquisitors present, our ACTUAL Inquisitor, and two Psykers. They initially start off with the same line of questioning that was applied to the others, asking if what was in the reports was true, etc. After a bit of time, someone knocks on the door, and shortly informs the Inquisitors of what was said in the other rooms (almost exactly the same as what Grendel had been saying).
    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:26 No.4027786
    Upon hearing this, our Inquisitor (Gerrod Russio, of the Ordo Malleus), gets into a quiet argument with the other three Inquisitors. After a few minutes, it becomes clear that the combined authority of these three far outweighs Gerrod, who pauses to tell Grendel 'I did what I could for you, and still find you to be the finest Acolyte I have had serve me. I was going to transfer you to my personal retinue for a few missions, and Emperor willing put you forward as a potential Inquisitor, but our Thorian friends have 'loftier goals' for you, and as such I am ordered to relinquish all claims on you.' He leans in closer while gripping his shoulder, and whispers 'try to not die' before departing. How exceptionally reassuring.

    So now the Thorians advance, and sit at the table across from Grendel, who at this point is pretty out of his league. Daemons are one thing, but being the target of singular interest by MULTIPLE Inquisitors, that is something slightly different. Anyway, they begin a little cooperative speech/lecture amalgation that does nothing to put Grendel at ease.

    'Acolyte, based off the reports and documents on your service in the last several months, you have performed... exceptionally well. Too well. In all honesty, what your are recorded as having accomplished is simply impossible, and yet every investigation that has been launched has turned up nothing but further evidence to support that you have in fact accomplished what has been claimed in the reports.'

    'Quite simply, what you have done is possible only to those who have become so infused with chaos as to be monstrous abominations, or those blessed by the God Emperor. You have been screened repititiously and exhaustively, and it has been decided that you are not tainted by Chaos. Hence why we are here. You could say it is our purpose to seek out those... like you. servents of the Imperium who have performed.... too well to be feasible.'

    'Hence why you are no longer under Gerrod's jurisdiction. You now will answer to us, and we already have a mission, of sorts, for you to attempt. We will bring you to meet the existing group of individuals that have been selected, and you shall then leave for your mission the next day. Timing is critical, and the mission data is highly sensitive. For now, all you may be told is that if you complete your mission, we will have more to say to you. That will be all. Dismissed.'

    Now this sounded crappy to the rest of us, as we were all wondering what the hell we would be doing during Grendel's little caper, but wait! Our GM had already prepared new temporary characters for us all around Grendel's level. All of them had accomplished some decent stuff, (a couple guardsmen who held off part of a Warboss' assault alone for three days using terain and trickery[Hak and Dakka's new chars], a commisar that strangeled an astropath when he became a daemonhost [Inez's new char, complete with cybernetic everything, as the daemon did not go quietly], the tech-priest that somehow got the ship mostly safe and sound back out of the warp after the death of it's astropath by temporarily taking control of the whole thing via interfacing[had good quality cortical implants and a shit-ton of talents related to machine interface, Able's new char], A cleric that burned a tau scout party to death alone [Garm's character] and two Scum who survived rescuing lo-hivers from a burning building for an hour unburnt [Nihilius and my new char's respectively])

    Sorry, my computer is going wonky, posts may be a bit slow

    So, we all read over our new characters, get used to them, and find alot to like (they all have some nice quirky history, both shining moments and personal failures, etc) Only two of them were already acolytes before this mission (Inez's commisar and Nihilius' Tech-Priest), but Grendel still outdoes them in terms of number of missions completed (with an incredible THREE WHOLE MISSIONS, WOOO). So anyway, we fast-forward to the next day, when all the new characters and Grendel are meeting eachother, and introductions are made, we share confusion as to what this mission could possibly be, the brand new acolytes desperately try and get some form of advice on what to expect, only to be met with silence by their elders (a mission from three Inquisitors where all the acolytes were picked for being 'special'? Does not sound very run-of-the-mill)

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:29 No.4027798
    So we are nervously socializing in the hanger (we were told to report there) when the three Thorian Inquisitors show up again, and gather us up. We are handed a dataslate, and told to get on a transport ship, and read the dataslate after taking off. Okay, a bit secretive, but it's the Inquisition, that's their thing. We get on the transport (a fairly large one, at that) and are told we are heading to Cantus (for Grendel, this place is familiar to a degree, not so to the others) So we strap in and wait for departure. The engines start firing up, and then falter for a minute, during which time we exchange troubled looks, and Able's Techpriest starts fidgeting with his implants, muttering about potential problems that could be assailing the ship, when the door to our cabin opens, and who rushes in claiming to be a 'last minute addition?' BENADICTA IS BACK. quick introductions are made as the engines wind back up to full speed, and Benadicta quickly squeezes in next to Grendel, who looks somewhat nervous at this developement, and glances up to see her staring at him smiling for a moment before looking away.

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:30 No.4027803
    And then the ship is in the air, and we have time to bust out our data slate, and review our mission, simply titled: Crucible. Apparently the IG sent to Cantus and the PDF both have fallen to chaos with incredible speed, and there are accounts of a space marine being seen in each force, which have now abruptly begun fighting eachother (the dataslate confirms that the Astartes have sent no one to Cantus). Benedicta proffers that she was sent with them as one of the few people who had been serving with the combined army in the previous skirmish, and as such has some knowledge of their armaments, troop strength etc. that should prove useful. The Mission? Destroy the two traitor legions. We will not be the only forces sent to accomplish this goal, but we will be recieving no officially ordered backup, just any that we can scrounge for ourselves. It is prefferable that this get accomplished before the imperial navy gets there (approximately three weeks after our arrival), since they have orders to perform an Exterminatus if the situation is not either resolved or severely changed by the time they arrive.

    Great. This sounds like it will be a cakewalk. Oh, and in case this isn't enough of a challenge, we get attacked in the warp mere hours feore we were scheduled to exit by a bunch of Hullghasts that, coincidentally, also chased out a few vagrants and a few Cultists of Khorne. Okay. So the cultists of Khorne start going mad (why did three of them have flamethrowers? WHY? And two had Chain Axes, the last had a Best Mono Great Axe), the Hullghasts are tearing into the passengers, and some of the vagrants were wanted men, as they decided to start firing wildly and capturing passengers to hold hostage. And just to clarify, when I say a bunch of Hullghasts showed up, I mean 46 Hullghasts plus 6 Cultists and 11 Vagrants (I guess a dreg or something similar). So anyway, we are getting SWARMED and a bunch of these enemies are actually pretty damn strong. So we blockade the central corridor, start using suppressive fire and liberal firebomb use to thin out their ranks. It is working pretty well, until the Cultists of Khorne breach the barricade after they all pass their willpower test to avoid pinning (I suspect the GM fudged the roll, but it certainly was thematically appropriate and kept the combat brisk).

    Grendel has rapidly lost his charm.
    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:31 No.4027814
    Anyway, the three Cultists of Khorne (hereafter reffered to as Cok) with flamethrowers go before the melee CoK, and open up with all three flamethrowers Cover protects some of us (Grendel being one, along with Hak (Dakka does not like cover, as he fears it lowers his chance of being shootey), Garm's Cleric and Able's Techpriest. Inez's commissar (bravely firing away as a commisar should, all while cursing both out enemies and our allies for not having killed the heretics already), Dakka and Both Cromwell and Nihilius' Scum (they did get nominated for actions involving fire, and we had great agility) are the ones that had to deal with fire to the face. Dakka somehow survives three seperate agility checks and does not get burned at all (he is apparently a fire ninja), Inez's Commisar got burned, but only gets set on fire once (uses a fate point to reroll, which negates it). The two scum under Cromwell and Nihilius' control, however... both get burned all three times and set on fire(that is with spent fate points for rerolls). And of course, it is now time for the three melee CoK to charge. fun.

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:31 No.4027817
    So the first melee CoK charges Dakka, Chain axe just grinding towards his head. Dakka parries it with his gun with a chain blade bayonet (, and then stabs the cultist in the face. Where he had no armor. With a Best Chain Blade Bayonet. He rolled a two and a ten, confirmed, and rolled a 4 and a 7. He skewered the CoK's head and plucked it off his body, and this was not even during his turn. Next melee CoK's turn. This time Inez's is under attack. The CoK misses, and Inez is fine. The final CoK charges in, and also charges Inez (apparently CoK hate Commisars, who knew), and successfully hits thanks to ganging up. It is now Grendel's turn, and he decides to grapple one the the two CoK on Inez. He succeeds, but causes no damage in the grapple. Dakka's turn comes up, and he proceeds to shoot off the CoK's face with his autogun, full auto. He rolls a 2. There is now just one melee CoK left. Inez goes next, and does a called shot at one of the flamethrowers the other three CoK are carrying, and hits. With a bolt gun. KABOOM. The PCs not behind cover have to role agility to avoid getting knocked prone and roll agility again to avoid getting hit with shrapnel. The lone surviving CoK has to roll as well, and makes both.

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:32 No.4027820
    Hak and Able both lob firebombs into the inferno, hoping to hit some of the charging Hullghasts, hopefully either killing or halting them long enough to turn some attention towards the Vagrants taking other passengers hostage and shouting demands (keep in mind about six seconds have passed since the fight started) The firebombs do wonders, setting several Hullghasts on fire that then set their compatriots on fire. The chokepoint is clogged with fire and corpses, and we deem it defensible enough that we can worry about the vagrants with hostages. Nihilius charges a vagrant with a hostage that has his back to him and grapples him, freeing the hostage and setting the vagrant on fire in the process. The vagrant burns to death as Nihilius strangles him, grinning maniacly. Cromwell (Got put out by the blast from the explosion) pulls out his Nomad Rifle (apparently richer than the average scum), and aims a called shot at another vagrant's face. Oh, he also had learned crack shot (the one that removes called shot penalties) in his past at some point, and rolled a 7. with 51 ballistic. with an accurate gun at less than half range, and we play with the errate 2.0 rules on accurate weapons for single shot.

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:32 No.4027826
    so, the one vagrant's head explodes, showering blood everywhere (I imagine the hostage is not feeling too good right now), but then the GM frowns, and pulls out a ruler, fiddles with the map a bit then smiles. Apparently another vagrant/hostage combo was directly in the line of fire, and I have to roll a d10 to see which of the two I hit. even for vagrant, odd for hostage. I roll a four. Cromwell just de-skulled two vagrants with hostages with one bullet. Well, the battle continues for a bit, us picking off vagrants for about a round as they grow increasingly frantic as they watch their comrades die (we only lost one hostage to an itchy trigger finger) when about a dozen BURNING HULLGHASTS jump through the inferno, set the one last CoK on fire, and all of them (Including the CoK) charge straight into us. At this point Grendel and Able both are hiding behind opposed pieces of cover, and are right next to the rushing hordes of Hullghasts. Grendel uses a reaction to toss an end of rope from his clip harness (which he compulsively wore ever since buying it after the warboss and burning building incident) and grab hold of some table legs and such to brace himself. Able's Techpriest was a Mechanicus Secutor, with the Machinator Array which tripled his weight, and he pulled the rope taught.

    The entire pile of Hullghasts and one CoK all end up in a big tangled burning heap, whitch Dakka and Benedicta burn to cinders with their flamers. For once, Benedicta is not smiling while killing (potentially knowing the fallen CoKs). Anyway, with that dealt with we go back to dealing with the remaining trapped hullghasts behind the barricades and finish up the fight, and start organizing the passengers and few crewmen present to help start cleaning up, hauling bodies to airlocks, and pilfering the dead. (two new chain axes and a best mono great axe, aw yeah!) Dakka starts trying to convince able to try and find some way to mount the chain axe on his Vanaheim (a full auto capable shotgun, fyi), to which the GM and Able agree, based on the inherant orkiness of the act. Able somehow manages to bolt it on, and Dakka is now armed with a fully automatic shotgun with a chain axe.

    Anyway, the rest of the travel through the warp is mostly uneventful, we pass some time getting to know eachother better, arguing over who did the best in the skirmish, which eventually segwayed into who has done the coolest stuff prior to this mission. Grendel is keeping quiet during this for the most part, when Benedicta interjects into the conversation, and scoffs at all but Inez’s commissar (strangling to death a sorcerer sounds very khorne) and the two guardsmen (their actions were very gore-oriented, so bonus points), and then regales the party with what Grendel did on the mission they met, and the stuff he had done before (He had been very low-key and humble about it, and hadn’t said much when they prompted him) So the new party recognizes him as awesome, and he is now party leader (We had been looking for an excuse for this soon anyway, he has training in all verbal pursuits and good scores to back them up, plus lore out of his ass). Grendel tried to reject it, but the commissar assured him that ‘Greater experience leads to greater victories.’ And Grendel was a bit afraid of him and went along with it.
    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:34 No.4027842
    So as everyone is congratulating Grendel on his exploits and jokingly celebrating their new esteemed leader, Benedicta sidles off, wandering into the halls alone. After spending a bit more time with the new crew (Until a few got out some bottle’s of Rotgut, and after a few drinks the guardsment had spiked the Commisars drink with Stimm and Slaught and he wandered off to yell at a pipe and try to throttle it while violently twitching) Grendel also wandered off, looking for Benedicta.He found her the chapel (appropriate for a sister of battle), leaning against a back pew smirking at images of the God Emperor, occasionally looking at the statue of Saint Drusus with respect. As Grendel entered, she started talking, maybe to him, maybe to herself.
    ‘A consummate conqueror, a warrior who led to glorious war on planet after planet, and he fell against something stronger on a small planet called Iocanthus. It was no surprise, his foe was stronger, more determined. And yet, he rose back up, pulled back from death, and resumed his fight, eventually killing his foe in brutal combat. And this man, this conqueror, murderer and warrior, is sanctified and exalted, for something that others might reward more. After all, he was only awarded a scant amount more time before he was returned to death, not enough time to fight at all.’
    At this she turns to Grendel, and says,
    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:35 No.4027845
    ‘I fear you may be faced with a future not unlike Drusus, and I fear the Emperor is not as… watchful as he was during the years of Drusus. What will you do, Castus Grendel, if you were to fall before a stronger foe, and be doomed to die, your last sight being watching your slayer continue on. How would you feel, knowing you could not struggle further against your foe, an enemy of you and the Imperium? And better yet, how would you feel, abandoned by the power and miracles that have brought you so far?’
    Grendel ponders these words for a moment, before replying,
    ‘If I knew the creature would die regardless of my failure, then I think I may be able to accept it. But if I were to know that my foe would continue on, to destroy more, to kill-‘
    Grendel pauses now, to stare into Benadicta’s eyes, before glancing towards the floor again. Benedicta smiles an entirely different smile than before, far more gentle than the smile she showed to Drusus, and her cheeks rose slightly.
    ‘-If I were to be faced with that, I don’t know that I could feel so content at death.’

    ‘Still,’ He continues, ‘While hullghasts and vagrants are no uncommon sight on a ship this size, seeing some cultists, of Khorne no less, is another matter. I find it strange how frequently I have seen Khorne during my short career as an acolyte. I wonder, do the Adeptus Sororitas run into so many? I have only seen one other example of chaos, that Inquisitor turned Daemonhost, and I find myself thinking there has to be some reason Khorne has been so… Present.’
    (He has Forbidden lore Daemons, warp, and cults, all +10 or higher. He knows his shit)
    Benedicta looks conflicted for a moment before speaking, her words much more hesitant than before.

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:36 No.4027853
    ‘As to the cultists on this ship, I would imagine that such a world as Cantus holds many enticing events, with the recent war against the Orks and now the legions turning traitor. Blood and skulls are cheap on Cantos now, and I imagine that appeals very much to Khorne and his followers. As to why you have seen Khorne so much… wherever there is slaughter, Khorne is there. Every bloodbath, every gorey death, Khorne is there and watching. I imagine you feel you have seen him so much because you seem to end up in such situations again and again, death and killing all around you. As to the Daemonhost we saw,’
    At this she pauses, grimacing, before going on,
    ‘I know not why Tzeentch would be there, but I doubt it is unrelated to why the IG and PDF after turning have fought each other. Gods do not take well to others treading on their machinations, yet Tzeentch seems compelled to do so. I find it likely we shall run into Tzeentch upon returning to Cantos.’
    She looks as if she wishes to say more, but our ship shudders and jerks, as we return to realspace. She get ready to resume speaking, but the ship begins to shudder again, for an entirely different reason: We are under fire.

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:37 No.4027857
    Apparently we dropped right out of the warp next to space pirates, as soon the familiar sound of connectors breaching our ship could be heard echoing about. Inez starts bellowing orders as the drugged commissar exits our rooms, and when some now roaming pirates round the corner, he grabs one in each cybernetic arm, and starts slowly crushing their faces as they scream and plead, all the while looking at them with a face of hate and drug-induced mania. The rest of the party groups up with Grendel and Benadicta, and after sparing a glance to see they really didn’t want to bother the commissar right now, headed down the corridors, hoping to find the main group of pirates. Sure enough, a few corners turned and there they are, shouting and shooting as they pour in from a massive breach caused by their ship. We quickly hide behind cover, and are trying to lay down enough fire they pay attention to us without hitting them so hard they scatter throughout the ship in search of weaker prey. One of the times Grendel pops up his head to take a pot shot, He says he wants to do an awareness test to see if he can observe anything useful about the marauding pirates. He rolls and 11, four degrees of success, and the GM rolls on a table of his own (I asked him later, he actually made a D100 table of different ships of pirates, and had been using it since our first campaign months ago)

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:38 No.4027864
    The GM rolls, consults the table, does a double take and starts laughting from the gut. Interested, we demand to know what he finds so funny, to which he responds,
    ‘They are the same group of pirates Grendel scared off on the trip to Solomon!’
    We all start laughing, when Grendel announces he is going to grab some Flamer canisters, firebombs and a bottle of rotgut, and do a repeat performance. We start to mock him, then realize that it actually makes sense, as those pirates should sure as hell recognize this guy. We quickly rig him up, and then once again he heads out, smoking a Iho-stick and holding a firebomb and a Molotov with a dozen flamer canisters clearly strapped to his chest. Once again the GM rolls awareness for the pirates, once again the ones that pass stop their compatriots from shooting this man, and once again the pirates are faced with what appears to be a suicidal and scary as hell fat guy. At the same time, while they are staring in Grendel’s face, several pirates run screaming back into the main area, followed by Inez’s commissar, his face twisted into a snarl with bloodshot eyes and a foaming mouth, covered in blood and carrying to severely mutilated pirates (they were an entirely new set of pirates, not the ones he had grabbed before).

    >> The Guy Who Cried Grendel Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)04:40 No.4027874
    At this, the pirates decide fuck it, the Emperor hates them, and decide to flee. As they do so, the guardsman both start lobbing hallucinogen grenades and fire grenades after them, and right as they start to disengage the techpriest fires off an electrical burst at them for good measure. So their ship detaches, its crew burning and hallucinating and scared out of their minds, all while their ship malfunctions. Our ship takes potshots until they go boom. So we are once again greeted and thanked by the Captain, crew and passengers, when a shipman runs up to the captain, blurting that their sensors detected an Eldar ship heading towards Cantos before them.

    And it was here we ran out of time. So next session, we will have to deal with a planet with two sets of traitor legions, potential orkish remnants and now apparently elder, and we will have to do it all before three weeks has passé, and do it without official back up. AWESOME.

    Well, I would certainly say that was some awesome roleplay from the two guardsman, who are supposed to be the new players comperatively, correct?

    But yeah, I especially loved the commisar just tottering off and throttling a pipe, made me think he was having a flashback. Also, strangling a daemonhost? FUCKING AWESOME reason to be reviewed by the thorians.

    >‘They are the same group of pirates Grendel >scared off on the trip to Solomon!’
    We all start laughing, when Grendel announces he is going to grab some Flamer canisters, firebombs and a bottle of rotgut, and do a repeat performance. We start to mock him, then realize that it actually makes sense, as those pirates should sure as hell recognize this guy. We quickly rig him up, and then once again he heads out, smoking a Iho-stick and holding a firebomb and a Molotov with a dozen flamer canisters clearly strapped to his chest. Once again the GM rolls awareness for the pirates, once again the ones that pass stop their compatriots from shooting this man, and once again the pirates are faced with what appears to be a suicidal and scary as hell fat guy.

    That's some Gav Thorpe shit going down. You're all going to die, except for Grendel, who is the mainest main character.

    Then he will die in the last mission, by having an epiphany and commit suicide while killing the final boss.

    Ah, I had been looking forward to the next installment.

    So, who thinks the next session should be crazy awesome? It sounds like there will be a few chaos space marines thrown in the mix as well, along with the TWO traitor legions, the maybe orks, and the eldar. Oh, and the potential traitor on their side. Oh, and they have a time limit. And of course no backup.


    The GM even asked them to free up extra time.

    What do you guys think?

    So by your guesses, the Chain axe may have been partially disassembled, with the head mounted so that the chains face forward beneath the barrel (vertically I would imagine) and the actual grip is then mounted farther back on the gun as part of a second grip for stabilizing the gun, with cords and what not connecting it to the head, is that right?

    Well, if space marines got seen in each traitor legion and the two traitor legions are fighting eachother, I wouldn't find it much of a stretch if one side is Khrone and has a World Eater or two, and the other side is Tzeentch and has a Couple Thousand Sons.

    I am not that knowledgeable on 40k fluff, how strong are these two types of marines comperable to what Grendel has fought.

    Additionally, do world eaters ever know summoning rituals, or would all the blooshed in the name of Khorne allow his creatures to come through anyway? I ask because I somehow see a climactic showdown after the marines fall but the armies are still fighting where a Bloodthirster and a Greater Bringer of Change (sorry if that isn't the actual name of the Tzeentchian heavy hitter) Duke it out.

    Also, if the GM somehow involves Simulcra for mindfuckery or Enslavers/Genestealers for even more shit hitting the fan, then I think this will be the biggest clusterfuck of a mission I have ever heard of.
    >> Anonymous 03/20/09(Fri)16:06 No.4031970
    Pretty much everything about this mission sounds like it is a giant setup to try and kill Grendel in as epic a manner as possible, rather than doing rocks fall or an equivalent. Everyone else is playing new characters, the mission is called Crucible, has a ridiculous degree of difficulty, etc.

    But if he survives, and somehow succeeds, he may still be screwed. This might vindicate the Thorians belief that he or one of the others may be the emperor reborn, which may force the character to be retired.

    Do any WH40K loresmiths know exactly what the Thorians plan to do when they find someone they decide is the emperor reborn?

    It's not so much "the Emperor reborn" but more "a vessel of the Emperor's power." From there on it depends how radical the Thorians are. If they're the usual, more puritanical sort, they'll just use him to spearhead big projects of conquest, change and other suitably epic endeavours.

    I see 2 Grendel stories on the /tg/ site, but they both sound like stories after the initial one, anybody have the first Grendel story?

    It is a thread with 30 something votes about BBEG bitch deaths or some such.

    That is pretty freaking sweet. I usually disapprove of things that have irritating fanbases, but the drawings and sheer ridiculousness of a fat adept being an action hero make up for it.

    The stories are an extra cherry on top.

    the link you are looking for begins here.

    and it's not just the fact that it is awesome Bloomwriter, it's the fact that it's awesome and well detailed following the exploits, overall that is a completely awesome picture. I salute the artist.

    So, what do we know about Grendel statistically?

    He has the Sprint Talent (was mentioned in the second story)
    He has at least 9 Wounds
    He has 3 Fate Points unless another has been burned

    He has Forbidden Lore (Warp, Daemons, Cults) +10 minimum according to this story

    He has or had mid twenty scores for strength, toughness, agility and weapon skill, If I recall correctly

    I do this rarely, but I'm bumping this so the night crew can get their words in before it hits page 10 and vanishes only to be known on suptg. [After all, they might have evil ideas]

    So, I have a couple quick Dark Heresy questions about the extra career paths presented in the Inquisitor's Handbook, and don't feel like cluttering the sight with another new thread on it, so I'll ask here.

    1: When a character takes an augment path (Like Bonded Emissary or Tyrantine Cabal Agent) That replaces the level they are at, meaning that they can no longer purchase from the old level, correct?

    2: If they had already purchased some advances from their old level before switching to the augment, are the purchases still considered valid?

    3: Can one take multiple augment paths so long as they qualify?

    4: Can one take multiple augment paths on the same level?
    >> Anonymous 03/21/09(Sat)00:35 No.4035318
    1: yes it is correct that they can no longer purchase from the level replaced.

    2: yes.

    3: as far as i remember no.

    4: not that i know.
    >> Anonymous 03/21/09(Sat)00:44 No.4035390
    Didn't the Inquisitor's Handbook have something on it about buying advances from your other career paths (Stormtrooper buying a sniper skill, etc)? Would that work for a level swapped out?
    >> Anonymous 03/21/09(Sat)00:45 No.4035399
    Well, I don't see any written rule saying you CAN'T have multiple augments, but you would probably need GM approval.
    >> Anonymous 03/21/09(Sat)00:47 No.4035411

    1: Correct

    2: Yes

    3: No written rule saying otherwise, so yes.

    4: I imagine it is possible, but you would be removing the augment each time you replaced it, so I don't see how it would be a viable strategy at any level but 8.
    >> Anonymous 03/21/09(Sat)00:49 No.4035422
    You mean could someone buy something from a level swapped out as an Elite advance, the same they buy things from paths they didn't take? I don't see why not, but since it doesn't say conclusively whether you can or not, then it is up to the GM.

    Someone told me that Grendel's backstory as why he was made to become an acolyte somehow involved the actual legend about Grendel, is this true?
    >> Anonymous 03/21/09(Sat)03:57 No.4036493
    That is correct, I think.

    His backstory had him reading a forbidden tome that documented the tale of a massive xenos/daemon/whatever attacking in valhalla, that eventually space wolves showed up to beat it, and their leader slew it single handedly.
    >> Anonymous 03/21/09(Sat)09:21 No.4037761
    So, I foresee three possible ends for this upcoming session.

    1: Grendel dies, the challenge being too much.

    2: Grendel almost dies, accepts power from Khorne to protect Benedicta, begins his descent.

    3: Grendel pulls macguffin powers out of his ass greater than ever before and succeeds.

    Which would anonymous like the most, I wonder? Number 2 for me, unless 3 also forever altered his life in some manner.
