    New Xomula thread, other is on autosage.
    >> Rubric Marine !5YmRrjC64A 05/29/09(Fri)19:53 No.4703486
    What did you guys think of the Warp-infused ruins description?

    >I agree with this; the Xenos ruins are filled with the Taint, the only thing left of the previous inhabitants and an indication of who they worshiped. Stepping in them would drive you mad, leading to the Chaos cults living in the ruins. The only people on the planet with knowledge of this is the Inquisition, who are trying to learn how to shield the mind from the maddening Taint. Perhaps that is the reason the PCs are on this horrible world of Xomula?

    The Atlantis thing, as well:

    >Indeed; with the Inquisition's crafts, it is possible to stay in the monstrous waters. The research base now sits at the deepest point of the ocean, a dangerous place. A plot hook, which could be a lot of things, would lead the PCs there, where they would discover the horrors inside...

    I would imagine a native Xomulan looks something like this. A primitive, basic species that's really around the Aztec period - except, with a real and terrible God on their side.
    Examinations of corpses show that they are not natural. They are a mutated form of something else, as are most of the planet's species.
    One theory is that they gave themselves to the Dark Gods who, in return, gave them the ability to live throughout the world.
    Another theory is that they turned to Nurgle when the global temperature slowly rose, causing the oceans to rise.
    Either way, most of the biological threats the Imperium has countered are not natural - they are contaminated and bent to a purpose by Chaos. The entire planet is alive with the power of the Dark Gods.

    Sometimes around the islands, saltwater vegetation grows in massive quantities, so dense that you're almost able to walk on it, even in this gravity. We call 'em saltswamps.

    Anyway, I was escorting a few enginseers who were looking for samples. We even brought along a local militiaman who wanted to help. We waited until we had the perfect time, when all five moons were pulling the tide out so there weren't any large beasties around. We used the few hours we had sneaking around the saltswamp, wading through the weeds and collecting corpses and skeletons for the 'seers' pet project. We were just making our exit when the fleshy berk began to whine and moan. Something about feeling light-headed. I don't know either - I haven't felt like that since I had my extra adrenaline glands implanted.
    Anyway, the poor fool collapses face down in the weeds and we pulled him out. It was horrible. His disgusting, fleshy legs were covered in fat, white leech suckling on his flawed flesh. How the silly bugger never noticed they were there, I will never know.
    Anyway, the enginseers had a field-day with those countless live specimens and I am left wondering to this day whether they planned it all along. You wanna know what the moral of this story is?
    You want to go to the saltswamps, cut your legs off and replace them first. Like the Ad Mech always says, the flesh is weak.

    The Daemons are sleeping; they wake up every time the moons line up. The Tzeentch Daemon and Nurgle Daemon then fight a battle, have a tie, and they go back to sleep. The fight causes a gigantic tidal wave, it has destroyed cites, as it carries minor Daemons in the wave itself. No living man has witnessed the daemons, as they were killed seconds later.

    There are many kinds; some are the old Xomulans, after they moved into the oceans. The bodies of Xomulans are filled with parasite, made by Nurgle, who attach themselves to humans, who lure them into the water to be eaten.

    The other inhabitants are various minor Daemons of Nurgle, who are kept there by the old Warp tainted ruins.

    >The largest moon of Xomulan is actually a giant energy producing factory. It provides energy both to Xomulan and it's other surrounding moons. Curiously enough, the last of the energy generators on the moon 'died' centuries ago. No one's entirely sure what's supplying energy to Xomulan or it's four other moons now, and those that know of the problem have lived on Xomulan long enough to know not to ask.
    That's the moon where the Admechs chill

    There's also a gold moon. That one's a lot like Xomula itself, in that it's covered in water, and islands tend to rise and sink. These islands are covered in natural gold. So far we have no reason for gold to float.

    There's the Agri moon. Nothing much going on there.

    As was said before, Xomula is bursting with life. All you have to do is gather some waer from the ocen in a glass and you'll be able to see milllions of tiny buzzing shifting lifeforms in that small portion of water.
    As soon as you're back in the biodome, you'll want to wash everything off as soon as possible. Everything comes off except for the synthskin and the mask and everything is washed thoroughly. The synthskin wearing militiamen are hosed down with massively powerful disinfectant and are checked for any contamination before they're allowed to strip out of synthskin and mask and put on what they want.

    Lack of hygiene is absolutely taboo. We're not even talking about dirty looks and 'ew, gross'. If you don't look like you just came out of the shower, you will suddenly become a social pariah until you notice and no one will come near you with a ten-foot long pole.

    Hi. I’m Dazil Krig. Yes, I served in the 17th Xomulan Infantry. 23 years in fact. Yes, it was the most horrible 23 years of my life. No, things haven’t really gotten any better since I retired. Slightly worse in fact. But that isn’t important is it? No, you’re not here for my life story. You want to know what’s it’s like fighting those abominations from the deep don’t you?

    You want to know what it’s like fighting the denizens of the deep. Fine, I’ll fucking tell you what it’s like fighting the damn denizens of the deep.

    I served with a ‘nids veteran once. Some bastard from one of the star systems Hive Fleet Leviathan struck. No, I’m still not sure what he was here for. Poor bastard probably pissed someone off in high command. Anyway, he always said it was a lot like fighting the ‘nids, except you don’t have to worry about getting your face being eaten off by some venom cannon. He as wrong of course- the denizens do have some kind of ranged infantry. Bastards can shoot quills at you, you see? And they’re just about as poisonous as everything else they extrude as well. But luckily for us, they have just about the same aiming ability as a blind, mentally retarded infant, so that’s okay. Of course, that tends to lose its charm when they’re coming at you in solid blocks of howling chitin, but as long as you keep to cover and treat your gear well you should be fine.

    We usually try and fight them in firing lines. One firing line in front with all the heavy automatic pray and spry weapons, and a second firing line in the back with shotguns, flamers, melta guns and heavy melee gear. I was usually in the front line. The general strategy is this: You have the front line armed with as much shit as you can give them. Lasguns, bolters, las carbines, autoguns- hell, even a heavy bolter or a Hellgun if you can swing it. Give ‘em pretty of explody bits to. ‘Nade launchers, anti-armor weapons, all that good stuff. Then you just let ‘em let loose with everything they got. And if you’re lucky, that’ll take them out soon enough. They got acid blood you see? So if you kill one- pop! Just like a balloon! And then there’s acid everywhere, and if you’re really lucky, it might a take a few more down to.

    But if you aren’t lucky, then you’ll have to fall back on the second line. I always felt sorry for those fuckers. They’re the ones armed with anything good at short range- as I said, shotguns, flamers, etc. Lots of grenades to. Lots and lots of grenades. Basically, if you’re in the second line, you just want to cover yourself in anything that will let you kill ‘em at short range without actually getting up to you. The acid blood tends to take a negative effect on our forces at this point.

    And God Emperor help you if you’re actually forced into melee with the bastards. They got spikes and claws all over the place, and they’re hellishly fast. Not to mention they’re practically pissing poison out of their skin. Saw a lad try to use a chainsword on one of them once. It didn’t end very well. Sometimes that acid blood thing can be a real bitch, let me tell you what. That’s how I lost half my face. First time on the second line, and we just had to get stuck into melee…

    Anyway, that’s how we usually try and fight the little warp-fuckers on this piss-poor excuse for a planet. Now hand me that fungus whiskey. I feel some good times coming on.

    I pictured them as smoother, shark/frog style. They swim, and this sea is unusually viscous due to the tiny critters, so they need to be quite streamlined.

    Amphibians from the deep come and eat the parasites and their host. Inside the amphibians (which are immune to these parasites) there are the perfect conditions for breeding. They're practically bursting with the parasite - cut one open and there are some many of the microscopic bastards in its blood it looks like red TV-static.

    Sometimes, when the tide has gone out and you've got your rebreather on tight, it's safe to venture towards the ocean. It's safe to wade out, put your goggles on and plunge your head under the water. Then, you've got look into the distance, look at the abyss before you. You won't see the darkness that any sensible human being expects. You'll see distant, glittering shapes. Ziggurats of hewn rock and glistening metal.
    Don't get ahead of yourself - I know what you're going to say next. They're the ruins we're after. They're the Xenos ruins we came to this world to investigate.
    That's the thing, though. They're not ruins. They're not covered in coral or seaweed or any other vegetation. Nothing grows there. Nothing touches it. If something does, the next time the tide's out, it'll be gone, I promise you.
    If something's a ruin, it means it's empty. It means it's abandoned.
    That place is not a ruin.
    Something's in there.

    When the Imperium first came to Xomula, they found it largely uninhabited. Yes, there were signs of an ancient civilization there- forgotten cities, xeno artifacts, ancient catacombs. But as for their creators, there seemed to be no trace. And thus the Imperium moved in, finding it an easy treasure.

    They were wrong though. The xenos did not just mysteriously die out, like they thought. They went underwater.

    And they are pissed.

    The first sign of attack were the parasites released into the air. Then, the monsters of the deep came out.

    Xomula has never been the same. And more importantly- they have still not actually seen their real foes.

    A tzeetchan cable gained a foot hold in the planet, and began launching a campaign of extermination in hopes of clensing the world of Nurgle's filth and claiming the planet in the name of the Changer of Ways. To help them with this crusade, they summoned a mighty Greater Demon of Tzeetch, who promptly began kicking all kind of ass all over the place. They almost succeeded to, until the Nugle Worshippers managed to cast a great spell of binding on the creature, trapping within the core of their biggest moon. They then summoned a Greater Demon of their own to guard the Tzeetchian demon's prison. This Greater of Demon is currently masquarading as the planet's smallest moon, orbiting the Tzeetchian demon's prison at ridiculous speeds. And thus, the two demon moon were created, and the Cable of Tzeetch was driven off of the planet, in the name of Nurgle.

    So if i understand this correctly there is a huge undercurrent of " I dont want to know" on the planet, the AdMech knows something is wrong particularily with their moon but dont want to stir up problems by investigating too deep, the common populace is content in their sealed envirodomes and the military fight the horrors but in many ways dont connect the problem to chaos but more to capricious xeno wildlife?

    There are a few with real suspicions probably but they are probably too scared and traumatized to adress the problem properly, fishermen and kelp trawlers, perhaps a few psykers but as unstable as they are on the planet they are probably shunned even more than an average imperal psyker, the few "illuminated" AdMech that got a larger piece of the puzzle and a few "lucky" military personell that have lived through bad experiences.

    Perhaps to aid in the deception the old xomulans might manifest their nurglish tendencies in a a way less obviously nurglish still full of parasites and highly poisonus but less outwardly diseased, no massive boils and rashes, no large suppurating wounds, after all they are Xenos and their psyche might not process the concept of disease in the same way humans do.

    The Troika Hunting Lodge is open to all "hunters of good standing" that have successfully completed three hunts, the lodge is located in an old observation tower not too far from the coast, its powerful binoculars and even some old auspexes allow for monitoring of a good piece of the nearby ocean.

    Every time a new safari sets out the betting starts as the members of the lodge takes bets on its eventual success or lack thereof, number of wounded and dead and soforth.

    Right time for some bad writefaggotry.
    The tech-priest of this hell-hole collaboration of 5 moons and a planet have hired me to go searching for some lost mobile city, it was a prototype named The Atlantis or something. Apparently there was some valuable gear on that thing, used for investigating the local sea and used sonar, but something happened to it and it sunk. They were quite reluctant to explain HOW it sank, but were willing to pay a handsome fee. It’s strange as tech-priest don’t often hire mercenaries and usually find someone a little more official to do their dirty work, but hey, work is work. So I land on the main planet Xomula, weird name, and the first thing that hits me as I make my descent is this place is ALIVE. Entire forests seem to move rapidly. Every inch of this place is full of life and moving which is going to make locating this damn mobile city. So we land on this dome, a glistening silver orb defiant amongst the sea of green but even these the pure life of the planet encroached on it. I docked and was then forced through a mixture of cleansing and torture. Never before have I felt so violated and, I suppose, clean. In fact everything in the place emitted an aura of cleanliness as if life depended on it and cleanliness really was next to godliness and weirdest of all there wasn’t a single hair on any of them!

    So after going through several air locks we were let out of the dome and escorted by soldiers, trying their hardest to keep a straight face it seemed, to the local docks where I saw a beauty of a submarine this old man owned. It was stunning, never had I seen so many weapons loaded onto a submarine of that size. It looked pretty fast too. Which made it all the more strange when the soldiers called it a heap of junk, just what were they expecting us to face out there? I didn’t care enough to ask and I set off, leaving the old man behind after I relieved him of his keys., he would after all be dead weight. What use would some local crazy be? The soldiers agreed saying it was probably for the best. I detected a hint of a smile protruding from one of their faces but left it at that and entered my newly acquired vehicle and set off. I was nary 3 minutes from the docks when a swarm of grotesque… well they sort of resembled fish but they were bloated and there was a definite feeling of wrong about them. They threw themselves upon the submarine, and as I shot them with one of the turrets on the submarine they burst into small explosions of acid and weird moving green parasites, who too threw themselves upon the ship gnawing and corroding the exterior of the ship. I thought that all was lost until I spotted a cave, covered with some form of fungus or green coral, that these beasts were seemingly avoiding. I set a course for it and went at maximum speed. My quick thinking paid off the fish disengaged and the parasites moved off my hull.

    There was some damage but I’d survive through it. I set for exploring this safe territory, It wasn’t as if I had much of a choice. It wasn’t long before I encountered some noxious gas the corroded my hull, I tried to steer my way away from it but it blocked my view and made me hit the surprisingly soft surface of the cave. Hitting it must have set off something because it seemed as if an earth quake was happening! And after the initial disturbance the movement of the rock it didn’t go away but kept at a steady beat. As my ship corroded into nothing from the ever present gas, leaving me drowning and exposed to the terrible gas causing pain in all of my body, so much so that I hoped that my suffocation would happen soon. It seemed to me every cell in my body was experiencing the maximum pain that each could experience, as they all slowly were dissolved and died stripping my flesh away, but it was not fated for me to die of suffocation as the water seemed to flow downwards into a huge pit of acid. I died in 2 seconds of meeting it, but the pain was so much it seemed an eternity that this thought rang in my head “The whole planet’s full of life. This cave is alive. And I am only one life, fleeting, and shall be devoured to sustain a life I don’t know how long has been alive. I shall die now so it may continue to live.” It was a terrible but beautiful thought. For I was not being eaten out of hatred, but out of necessity. The force that caused me to die didn’t hate me. It loved me. I wish I realized that beforehand.

    That shit's completely underground. The world is a very depressing place to live and this causes quite a lot people to fall to despair and whine and moan.

    I wonder what kind of vehicles they could have Xomula. I keep imagining most the place being swamp land, and would largely just kind of laugh at things like chimeras and half tracks.

    I keep imagining things like War of the Worlds style sentinel walkers. Lots and lots of hover vehicles and walkers mostly.

    If i understand the intent properly it would not be too many of them, Xomula and its denizens is below the radar because it is a Huge Chaos infestation hiding as merely another world with weird properties and nasty wildlife, nearly everyone belives the old Xomulans to be extinct and that the horrors in the water is a natural occurrence.

    Another part of it is the coverup by the local AdMech that does not want to admit just how little control they have, and therefore have defaulted to a "pretend nothing is wrong" mode of operation.

    This is actually the most logical path.
    Hovercraft would waste a disproportionate amount of energy due to the insane gravity.
    The crab-harvesters from War of the Worlds are superior in every way in terms of gravity - their mass is nice and spread out.

    That's certainly an interesting choice. I'd think of something more on the lines of Toxic Love, the first half at least. Also that bring me to the point: Acid Rain is awesome and grimdark. We should totally have it. Local wildlife has just learned to live with it.

    It always rains of Xomula. It's just one of the things you get used to, living on the dreary little planet on the fringe of the Imperium. Helps you remember things, really. No one tends to forget their hab suits for one thing. Not after the first time they lose 10% of their body skin anyway.

    Perhaps the Xomulan Milita have taken a page from the Romans, Serve three decades in the milita and you get a good piece of land and a nice lump sum of cash, unfortunately less than 2% of the milita survives to the end of their term.

    Also thrifty commanders sometimes only dole out seaside properties for their veterans, These commanders often suffers from unfortunate mishaps during decontamination .

    Well you can say one thing for Xomula: Must be easy to find a badass symbol for it. Look at all this evil wildlife. Shit's fierce. You think anyone would bother TAMING some of this stuff?

    I also can't get it out of my mind that a Xomulan flag would be really depressing. Like just a guy screaming.

    So the humans who try to survive in the wild are short and stout with mottled skin? Probably with broad feet too in order to help them walk on floating surfaces, such as swamps and so on. All in all, they would ugly bastards, like the Deep One hybrids from Lovecraft's Innsmouth.
    No flag. It's just a bizarre research world - the planets and the moons have all sorts of bizarre traits that the Imperium wants to know more about.
    As soon as they know what they want to know? There wouldn't be a single person who lived on Xomula who would be unhappy to flick the "Exterminatus" switch.

    So Xomulans basically come in two flavors?

    Insiders which are the vast majority who despite it all feel quite content as they almost never venture out of the sealed cities and whose biggest worry are the horrible orks on one of the moons? They probably look down on the outsiders who come off as superstitious hillbillys who lack the sophistication and calm of the insiders.

    The Outsiders probably look upon the Insiders as spoiled brats whitout a clue, while being envious of the relative luxury the Insiders live in, The outsiders are probably also pretty damn superstitious due to the dangers outside, they are probably on the whole more religous than the Insiders too.
    >> Anonymous 05/31/09(Sun)13:10 No.4721472
    Note: Outsider economy revolves entirely around air. People exchange products for clean air. The more expensive product, the more air exchanged for it. Air is also measured in time.

    So, a day's rations of disinfected deepmeat will probably cost an hour's air rations while a well-crafted lasgun will probably sell for several days air rations.

    Here's a quick monster I made up for Xomula.

    Slither Stab

    WS:30 BS: 20 S: 30 Ag: 35 Int: 20 Per: 35 Fel: 10 Wounds: 10

    Movement: 2/4/6/12

    Traits: Natural Weapons (Scything Talons, Mandibles), Crawler, Tough Hide (Armor 1 to all body parts), Swift Attack, Acid Spit*

    *As a half action, a Slither Stab can attempt to cover a victim in powerful digestive enzymes from its stomach. The attack needs a BS check to succeed, and can be dodged but not parried. A successful Acid Spit deal 1d10+5 E damage.

    Weapons: Scything Talons and Mandibles (1d10+3 R; Primitive, Tearing), Acid Spit (1d10+5 E)

    Thinking of giving it Unnatural Speed though, to make it move faster. What do you guys think?
    >> Anonymous 05/31/09(Sun)14:58 No.4722270
    The Slither Stab, at least, appears to have always lived on Xomula and is mostly land based. The common Slither Stab lives in the more 'forested' ares of Xomula -or at least what the inhabitants of Xomula call 'forested'- where it's sticky, snake like body can be best used to it's advantage, climbing up to high tree branches and jumping down on wary travelers, or just shooting at them with powerful plasma like stomach acids. It should also be said that the Slither Stab is also one of the few creatures who pose a year around threat to the walking hab cities most of the populace lives in- the Slither Stab has been know to commonly use it's sticky underbelly to climb up the metallic legs of the city and then enter from there, sometimes causing damage to it's protective dome.

    Either way, most Xomulans know better to an investigate when they hear a suspicious slithering sound in the sewers or in a dark alley way- at least not without some friends or a member of the Xomulan Plague Milita with them at least.
    >> Anonymous 05/31/09(Sun)15:04 No.4722319

    Unnatural speed might be ok, check that int however, with int 20 it is about as smart as a stupid human, this means that it is smarter than a chimpanzee or a wolf for that matter, it is actually sapient and as such should be able to use strategies and actions that outperform the aforementioned animals.
    >> Anonymous 05/31/09(Sun)15:24 No.4722527

    On the other hand it could work nicely as a "welcome to Xomula" encounter, uppity snakeoid attacks one the party members but quickly runs away, the party follows it baying for its blood, when suddenly BAM ambush.

    Instantly there is slithering rippyness and acid spit everywhere.

    Acid Burster

    WS: 15 BS: - S: 15 T: 30 Ag: 55 Int: 5 Per: 50 WP: 35 Fel: 5 Wounds: 2


    Traits:Natural Weapon (Mandibles), Dark Sight, Amphibian, Toxic, Strange Physiology, Unnatural Senses, Resistant (Poison), Acid Blood*

    * Acid Blood- If the creature takes 5 or more Damage or Crit Damage, it spews any adjacent creatures with corrosive blood dealing 1d10+3 E damage ignoring armor points. This can be dodged, but not parried.

    Weapons: Mandibles (1+1 Primitive)

    The Acid Burster is a common vermin type amphibian about the size of a small mouse that can be found almost anywhere on Xomula, Highly adaptable and able to survive on diets consisting primarily of plastics and fuel they are very hard to get rid of once they start infesting an area, Acid Bursters do not usually carry any diseases but remain dangerous due to their toxins and due to the fact that their fragile bodies release a powerful acid when they die.

    Acid Bursters usually avoid bright light and sudden movements as they are quite low on the food chain in Xomula.

    Starving Acid Bursters (a rare ocurrence) at times band together in massive swarms that are virtually fearless.
