    18 KB Abyssal Jaws 5 Anonymous 04/21/11(Thu)19:19 No.14672352  
    Founded in the 33rd Millenium when a lone Administratum clerk found a fragment of the text "Call of Cth-", the High Lords were notified and geneseed of the Blood Angels began being stockpiled for the founding of the Abyssal Jaws. Since its founding the Chapter has made itself known for its vicious tenacity in close range combat and specilation in aquatic enviroments as well as its open disregard for the Codex with its numbers being several times over the stipulated 1,000.

    +++++DESIGNATION: SVX71/55/DVII-13-T++++++
    SUBJECT: Adeptus Astartes of Maresia, Entry 13
    ++Thought for the Day: A mind without purpose will wander in dark places.++

    The Red Thirst tends to affect the Abyssal Jaws less often than other successor chapters of the Blood Angels. It would be a grave mistake to assume their gene-seed has miraculously been saved from this fate. No, it is quite the opposite. The Abyssal Jaws seem to be spared the curse of Red Thirst much in the same way that a man is spared the curse of suffocation while he is in an oxygenated atmosphere. They surround themselves with so much carnage that they have drank their fill of bloodlust to the point that it's almost impossible to tell if an Abyssal Jaw in the grips of the Red Thirst or not.

    The Black Rage is known to the Abyssal Jaws as "The Call of the Deep". Thier minds do not call back to the boiling cauldron of fury that death of Sanguinius left on all who share his gene-seed, no, they are instead filled with a frigid, inevitable purpose like the crushing grasp of the deepest trenches of Maresia. They are called to those depths to do battle with the blasphemous eldritch horrors that sleep beneath the waves. None shall stand in their path lest they too be devoured by this cold fury or so it is said.

    I know not much else of the fate of those claimed by such a state, the locals dare to say no more than cryptic statements that they have gone to join Lord Cartographer Achab's crusade in the Forbbiden Depths. (note: Abyssal Jaw's Chief Libraian, lost to the warp though it within reason to presume he dead).

    taked out of the old thread

    Deep within the crevasses of Maresia's equatorial oceans lies an ancient and long forgotten secret.

    Miles beneath the deepest of ocean hives lie ruins of an ancient civilisation. Worn away by tidal forces and crushing pressure, any explorator vessels that even attempted to search te area would see nothing more then boulders, miming the shapes of pillars and walls.

    Further still, carved deep into the side of the crevass cliffs, lies the ruined entrance to a great temple. Corroded suits of armour surround stone doors, the few discernable details on their surface ghosting the shape of the Astartes.

    Through the stone doors, a water flooded passage leads almost endlessly forward. Eons ago, the passage way would have been lined with torches and braziers. Long since eaten away by rust, only green and orange tinged sand remains, covering the floor in a macabare 'mosaic' (continued)
    >> Anonymous 04/21/11(Thu)19:26 No.14672412
    Deeper into the passage, more Pieces of armour litter the floor. Some with little enough corrosion to make out the silver grey of ceramite, others no more then rock like husks. Of the remains of the wearers suits, there is no sign, the bones joining the sea dust that lines the passage.

    After many kilometers, the passageway finally ends. One great door blocks futher entry, sealing out the ocean water.

    Behind this door lies a sleeping giant. A great beast, sitting upon a throne of marble worn by the eons. Where once was fine carvings in it's surface, only coral like cracks, bubbles and humps remained.

    Of the beast itself, it's size dwarfed space marine dreadnaughts and tyranid carnifexes alike.

    The features of both man and frog combined, the ancient xenos sat upon webbed legs, with a great rotund middrift and bulbous head.

    Of note, however, were the long tentacles the descended from it's front nostrils. Almost octopus like in appearance, they seemed at one both a perfectly natural feature, and a strange and abnornaml mutation.

    Eyes closed, the beast remained motionless, the only sign of life coming from a slight tremble as it breathed once maybe every hour or so.

    But in it's mind, a great war wages....

    Last thread we managed to finally pick the big beastie that lurks at the bottom of the Maresian Ocean (an insane Old One). We also discussed whether or not cannibalism is HERESY (it isn't).

    The biggest thing we should probably sort out is the chapter symbol. Are we going with the one in the OP or making a new one or what.

    Actually, I wonder what the Inquistion thinks of the chapter.

    Not very good i think
    almost hereticals?

    Would make sense. All the cannibalism, trophy-taking and RIP AND TEARING practically makes them aquatic World Eaters.

    So we have the organization of this Chapter?
    >> Anonymous 04/21/11(Thu)20:21 No.14673018

    Ermm... Not really, no.

    What we have got is that they definetly aren't a Codex chapter and they have a lot more then 1000 marines.
    >> Anonymous 04/21/11(Thu)20:35 No.14673194
    So if there are more then the stanrd 1000 marines in the Abyssal Jaws, how many should there be? How many companies would the Chapter consist of?

    eh, i think the Librarians will have big part on the leadership
    considerating everything
    >> Anonymous 04/21/11(Thu)20:59 No.14673422

    Perhaps the chapter has a higher number of Librarians compared to other chapters. The reason could be that the Librarians are the only marines able to resist the whispers of the Old One. Using their combined powers, the Librarians can stop the whispers from reaching their brother marines.

    “The Parrot”, often misnamed “Langford's Basilisk”, is an infamous picture among the marines of the Abyssal Jaws and the Inquisitors who periodically visit the planet. The image was discovered by Inquisitor Mordecai on the abandoned planet of New Cambridge, located in close proximity to Maresia.

    Inside of a ruined house, a barely functioning computer was found and the retinue tech-priest was called up to win the cooperation of its machine spirit.. After sufficient prayers and the numerous applications of sacred ointments, the tech-priest was able to convince the computer to turn on. However, minutes later the Tech-Priest found the The Parrot. The text below the image was unreadable, but something about the picture worried Mordecai, so the image was moved to a data storage pad and taken along with the retinue.

    When the Inquisitor found himself back on-board an Imperium ship, he was able to find a translator who specialised in Old Terran. For the next hour or so, the translator translated the text, taking notes and referring to ancient tomes. However, as soon as he'd finished and read through the text, he flung himself to the floor in horror. Trying to work out what was wrong, the Inquisitor read the text and, noting how the image apparently later “crashed” the brains of those who gazed upon, judged the image to be heretical.

    The Parrot is now located in a vault, locked within the darkest depths of an unclosed world, far from the eyes of mortal men. It is still studied by members of the Inquistion, who try to harness its powers in an attempt to destroy their enemies. One of the Inquistiors who do not study the image is Mordecai, who unable to live with the possibility of dying from a Gödelian Shock Input, chose to take his own life. Thus far, it is believed countless people have been killed as a result of observing the picture, but none of these deaths have ever been recorded.

    Perhaps the Chapter could have an aversion to Dreadnoughts. By being entombed within a Dreadnought, they feel that they're being barred from their eventual fate of falling to "The Call of the Deep".
