(My apologies; most of it is spent writing. I'll try and speed up.)
"Brothers!" he announces. "Today the Gods have granted us a new initiate. This is Brother Charadon, and he will be joining us in the upcoming battle against the Ultramarines."
"Hail, Brother Charadon!" your squadmates all stand up and shout in unison.
"We'll have to dispense with the usual final ceremonies; we're set to depart for battle immediately. Brother Charadon will prove his worth there, or he will die trying. As for the rest of you, report to the shuttle immediately! We're dropping in! IRON WITHIN!"
Their reply is swift and enthusiastic. "IRON WITHOUT!"
Klaxons sound off throughout the halls. "Come! The enemy awaits!"
Your deployment is swift and efficient; in a matter of minutes, you're all onboard the shuttle. As it takes off, your brothers sit in complete silence, watching the Sergeant intently as he explains the mission...
"Our objective is to take this manufactorum here," he points at a map with his power fist. "By any means necessary. It's vital we deny the Imperials its use. Capture it, destroy it, I care not. Slaughter every dog who gets in your way!"
The craft rumbles as it enters the atmosphere.
"As always, stay together. The Gods are watching, and more importantly, I am watching! Do not disappoint-"
An explosion rocks the shuttle, and an emergency alarm goes off.
"What in the Warp just happened?!" One Brother exclaims.
"Anti-aircraft fire!" You can hear the pilot scream. "I think I can hold it steady-!"
Another explosion, followed by a horrible tearing sound. The craft rocks, nearly throwing the Sergeant off of his feet. He wisely straps in and braces for impact.
"Prepare for crash-landing!" he shouts over the din. "They'll pay for this!"
With a horrible scream, the craft smashes into the ground. The shock is too great for even your enhanced body, and you black out.
