>>19505552http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtGqDsRbs8o&feature=relatedIn the grim darkness of the 41st millenium there is only war. Imperium of Man, once strong and proud, now is slowly crumbling, whole regions of space are lost to the horrors that lurk in the darkness of the void. Sector Deus is just one of thousands of Imperial provinces that form the frontline in the war to defend Humanity itself. Corruption from within and aggression from without threaten it. But Emperor sends us hope. High Lords of Terra commisioned a Chapter of Adeptus Astartes to defend this region of space. They are the last line of defence that hold Age of Ruin at bay. They are the Ghosts of Retribution.Last session:...was quite slow and nothing of notice happened. Except this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwlNPhn64TA thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPv5LqdRVNA#t=04m01sand thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW1rr3BJiLYleading to pic related.you can read more here http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19491451/
>>19505659We finished here:All of a sudden you hear the engines of your landspeeder failing, Anterion turns to you and smiles:"Don't worry, it always does that, give it a couple of seconds... what..?"Landspeeder starts wavering in the air. How do you deal with situation?
HAHA, Fuck yes I found it when it came up.
Wait for the land speeder to settle down. This isn't the DAOT so things are gonna have some hiccups. Have it examined by at Techmarine later.
>>19505934Adding to this.We should explain the situation to Anterion about us killing the first man in the fortress monastary.
>>19505934>>19505938All of a sudden landspeeder loses altitude and slams into the ground with full force.Roll 2d10 to generate your agility.Then roll d100 to dodge. As you wear no power armour, you get +20 to that test.
Yay!!! I caught the start this time!
rolled 31 = 31>>19506024Your agility is 36 +20, it means that you need to roll under 56 to get out of the landspeeder before it hits the ground.Rolling for Anterions dodge (Below 30)
rolled 3, 9 = 12>>19505981Agility
rolled 33 = 33>>19505981dodge
"The Emperor Protects!"
>>19506037I hope you survive Anterion.
>>19506046The Eternal God Emperor has blessed your roll
Anterion will be saved by the grace of the emperor, we will revel together as we regail our brothers with tales of my Girth
>>19506118We can only hope.
rolled 24 = 24Rolling to save Anterion from crashing to earth
Skargan must be in the bathroom or something.
>>19506037>>19506046When it becomes clear that there is nothing else to do, Anterion turns to you and shouts "Get out!", blasting at you with his full psychic force, throwing you out just moments before the speeder crashes into the icy rocks... When you jump on your legs and run towards the crash site, you find Anterion sitting calmly in his seat, his armour pierced in numerous places by metal spikes as thick as your thumb."Brother... My hearts are pierced,I feel my mortal shell failing... Oh, I am so glad that I've met you before my... Because you must know. You must. I... It's not safe for you. Those men, who were seeking for you on Tachion Primaris, they wish our Chapter... Find Silencius, he will tell you the truth. And beware of Arcon, he has grown strong since you left... It... It was an honour, brother." You feel that he chose to follow the light.
>>19506197Anterion.........I suppose we get back to the fortress-monastary and contact Silencius...On another note, what happened to the Wrath of Corax?
rolled 39 = 39>>19506197"It was an honour to call you Brother. I am happy to have seen you again."Rolling to investigate the landspeeder - to check for working components, in particular, to see if we can contact our Brothers.
>>19506224It was not destroyed in the atomic fires, you are sure of that, because your spirit-ghost in the Limbo wielded it. But there probably wasn't enough metal in that ice beasts' belly to form a sword, as it formed you from it's meat. It might be on Hades, in Limbo, or anywhere on the galaxy where Laughing God decided to throw it out...Pic: not exactly wrath of corax, but will do for now. I liked Berserks depiction on the Chapter Master picture a lot more, I will have to ask him to draw the sword alone
>>19506197Anterion NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!Scream his name to the heavens in despair, leading onto cackling laughter before we search the speeder for anything we can use.
"May the light of Holy Tera guide you to the side of The Emperor, Brother."I agree with >>19506245
>>19506245Roll intelligence d100 with a secret modifier>>19506276Laughing God probably smiles somewhere... It seems your first vision was almost true. Except for the monastery part. And what irony, he needed to get 30 or less, but got 31... You can't escape Fate, can you? Well, it's your fault he died. Maybe.
rolled 61 = 61>>19506296Laughing god is a douchebag....
rolled 14 = 14>>19506296Rolling
Holy Emperor that roll was incredible.
Rolling to hold onto our fragile sanity in this trying situation
>>19506245Sorry, didn't notice your roll - 39You succeed in finding a working vox caster among the supplies that you use to contact Fortress-Monastery. Marine on the set cannot believe that it's you, but they are sending three landers and land convoy to get you... Also, while searching the lander, you noticed one more thing. Some of the inner mechanisms that were now exposed by the crash, seem to have been sabotaged. It means, that either Laughing God is so petty as to cause technical malfunctions or there was someone else who wanted Anterion dead...
>>19506342"Treachery! Heresy! It will be my mission to root out whomsoever was responsible! They know not what terror they have wrought for themselves!"
>>19506342ARCON!!!!!!DAMN YOU!!!!But lets not kill him as soon as we see him....he may be innocent...we have to find Silencius.
"BY THE EMPEROR'S LIGHT I WILL AVENGE YOU! BROTHERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"
What about asking over vox to get them to brind Arcon. And ask for an axe. If they ask, say we need his skull.
>>19506375If we start beheading random marines we're gonna raise a few eyebrows...plus we don't know it was Arcon.
>>19506390>>19506375Also, we shouldn't enter the Fortress Monastary, and instead just warn the marines inside.If we do enter we'll kill someone, and after Anterion just got killed I doubt we'll be trusted so much.
>>19506390exactly. i am making a large post about all that has changed since you left, be patient.
Do we know if the vision showed us the method of the person dying?For all we know the first person we talk to could enrage us so that we kill them, or they could have systematic multiple organ failure, or a piece of the roof cave in over.We dont even know if we will kill more than 1 person, only that the first person we talk to will die. Doesnt meantion the 2nd or 3rd...
>>19506452NOPE.We should still be cautious though, we could kill the Emperor himself.
Oh hey, my roll killed the don yesterday
>>19506459Then we should stay outside the monastery all together.Just under any event do not enter.
>>19506471As I said here: >>19506436Unless the space marines have a prisoner or something.
>>19506471>>19506452>>19506459I'm pretty sure the person we had the vision about was Anterion.
>>19506484Well, we'll see.We'll see.
By the way Skargan, there was talk of 'fate points' last session, how do these work?>>19506488Hopefully we'll be able to get rid of the sanity issues, it did say we could regain our 'sacrifice' at some point.
Damn, gonna miss the bulk of this thread due to a flight.Do we know how long we've been gone more accurately than "years"? I guess I should just wait until Skargan posts his summary.
It seems that you were gone for 4 long years, today it is 321.M41, just as you thought, time flow in Limbo is different from reality.After you left the Chapter was thrown into anarchy. No one expected that something like this could ever happen, at least not so soon, on historical scale your Chapter has just been founded and losing a Chapter Master at this stage was a terrible disaster... Sergeant Arcon of Kappa Squad, also known as Soulkillers, took over command of the group after you vanished and returned to "Kentauros". Captain Brethorius insisted that a raid should be launched on "Dark Sister" to make sure that you aren't somewhere inside, but it turned ugly, leading to deaths of 14 brothers. Arcon used respect that he gained for dragging the team out of the space hulk in the first place to secure himself a position as a Captain. Brethorius'failure caused him to lose prestige and he wasn't able to take up Chapter Master's mantle. Arcon was pushing forward the idea that Chapter doesn't need centralised leadership to act and that you might still return, so Chapter Council agreed that there will be interregnum period of 10 years and if then you will not return, the most successful Captain will take over Chapter Masters position. As Arcon started gaining a lot of influence following the incident, at the moment he's probably the most likely candidat for that. Your abscence also lead to a surge of new and old superstitions and factionalism within the Chapter. Soul Harvesting cult under Arcon is in full swing, claiming over a third of all brothers as members. Rituals and sacrifices after and even during the battles are a common thing.
>>19506518 Also, Arcon demanded Kerius Dermont, Lord Regent of Mormark, to supply Ghosts of Retribution with a 100 criminals each month for the target practice and rituals. Because of shady nature of this request, relations between the planetary government and the Chapter have worsened greatly. Harmantos also seems to be involved in a group known as Ice Wraiths, a small, but very secretive group of marines that go into months-long hikes across the ice wastes to some secret pilgrimage sites. They make Arcon very angry, because they don't give up any information on what they do and they oppose the Soulkiller cult. Another faction is led by Kronos, who believe that we must follow the ways that were before laid out by you, they are the most happy of all when you finally come back to the Fortress-Monastery. However their beliefs are also strange in some ways, because of your 'sacrifice' they started gloryfying death and martyrdom, their armour is decorated in skulls and symbols of death. They are very much morbid, fire and brimstone type of marines. Revenants(you have 6 of them now) all subscribe to the ideas of Kronos. Chapter also seen a rise of new tradition - dueling. Almost each year someone dies because their faith or honour was insulted and they wanted to make up for it, however as you understand this is slowly gaining speed. Chapter also lost some wealth and our ties with Adeptus Mechanicus became a little colder because Fabricator General Regon had a personal friendship with you and Arcon always vetoed getting into conflict with Ecclesiarchy to support Mechanicus.
>>19506518Well shit.....We need to talk to this Silencius we were directed to by Anterion, and of course, be wary of Arcon, it's more than possible he'd want us 'out of the way', as he is in line for Chapter Master.
>>19506533Duelling = gotta stop.Criminals for target practice = gotta stopTell Kronus and his dudes to ditch the whole 'death & despair' thing, after all, you have returned! There is always hope!
>>19506533For clearing out Varda, you gained 1 Favour point from High Lords of Terra, but colonisation efforts haven't been started because of disagreements. Imperial Fist emmissary took the relic and promised to return the favour as soon as able. You can choose either get 3 Favour points with HLoT or have Imperial Fists to remain in your debt. You now have contact[Imperial Fists]. Also during that time you have gathered more recruits and gained some bad fame[7% Heresy], Chapter morale is very low because of the way brothers are divided. Also, it seems that Anterion had a student, Trianon, who served as a younger Librarian before his master got killed... Died in the accident, that is. Shadow Guard was demoted from guarding the Chapter Master to protecting the relics, effectively leaving them out of the picture.
Find Arcon and ensure he is the first one you talk to in the Monastery, after all, he has been essentially leading us, you'd like to hear from him what's been going on.
>>19506541There is no marine named Silencius in your Chapter.Ghosts throw a huge celebration to welcome you, even mourning for Anterion goes to the second place... However everyone is interested what happened to you and what happened to Anterion. What's your official story?
>>19506618Officially he is no more influential than Captain Merkon or Captain Brethorius, but he's the most active and decorated from them. Do you want to speak in private with him?
>>19506618We cannot enter and talk to anyone, unless we want blood on our hands.
>>19506657... But if it's gotta be anyone, I wouldn't mind Arcon. O perhaps the prophecy was fulfilled outside in the crash.
>>19506600Okay epic speech time, gather all our chapter together:"BROTHERS!!! THE PAST FEW YEARS HAVE TAKEN A HEAVY TOLL ON OUR CHAPTER!WHERE THERE WAS ONCE HOPE, THESE IS NOW DESPAIR!WHERE THERE WAS ONCE FAITH, THERE IS NOW BLASPHEMY!4 YEARS AGO I WAS LOST TO THIS CHAPTER, I HAVE NOT STOPPED FIGHTING SINCE THAT DAY! THERE WERE MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO GO TO THE EMPEROR'S PEACE, BUT I KNEW I COULD NOT LET THIS CHAPTER FALL.INTERNAL STRIFE HAS TORN US APART, WHERE THERE WERE ONCE BROTHERS, THERE ARE NOW FOES, WHERE THERE WAS ONCE LOYALTY, THERE IS NOW DISTRUST!THIS CANNOT, THIS *WILL NOT*, STAND!!!"
>>19506684Don't forget the strategic girth story
>>19506684http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9DO1U1U5RcAs you say all of this, with Chapter Master theme playing in the background, you think it might do the trick. Roll 2d10+30 to generate your Charisma and then roll d100 to test it! For an awesome roleplay + 20 to roll
>>19506725We can't tell them we consorted with xenos....
Would this new librarian be able to detect our minor latent psychic ability?
rolled 9, 3 + 30 = 42>>19506729charisma
>>19506736>>19506725They will still want to get details about:1. What has happened on the Dark Sister2. Where you have been all this time3. How you returned4. What happened with Anterion
rolled 59 = 59>>19506748now for the speech...
>>19506752We can get to those points with a Q&A.
>>19506684'Yo, mah niggas, all dat shit lost us our homies''Shit niggas, we lost a lot of our shit, I turf been overrun by other gangs''We lost our respect. Now these niggas on the street think we all a bunch of pussies' 'Back in the day, we could ruled our turf, ruled all these mother fuckers, bitches didn't fuck with us and we we're the baddest motherfuckers around''Now a buch of our niggas fucked an started reping other crews, and we can't have dat shit''So mah niggas, we gonna take that shit? Nah niggas, we gonna go out there, stomp some motherfuckers and take our turf back'
>>195067521. What has happened on the Dark SisterThe Emperor summoned us to assist him against the dark2. Where you have been all this timeAssisting Big E3. How you returnedBig E decided it was our time to return for the state in the chapter is dire.4. What happened with AnterionHe was called to serve the Emperor in our stead, and surely shall return one day after he has done his due.
>>19506772all of my nope
>>19506776Err, ah, no.Rather vague.
YOU ALL FAIL AT ROLEPLAYING
"For the Glory of our Chapter, brothers, we must rise above our petty squabls, above the gloom and misery that has plagued us for the last four years. We must rise and take our proper place as The Emperor's Chosen!"
>>19506798Goddamn it, wrong field.
>>19506810Dice rolls don't work that way.You can't have 2d10 and 1d100 in the same thingAlso I already rolled>>19506758>>19506748
>>19506743As it was awakened by Eldar, they have popped your cherry in a gentle way, so without going under the skirt he will not notice anything, but atm he sees no reason to check you for taint. Damn, it is a fucked up metaphor, but I am too lazy to rewrite it.also,updared Chapter statisticsas you might have noticed, you got the first Retribution Pattern Baneblade... and maybe the last, if you do not rekindle your friendship with Mechanicus.
"My brothers, it is glorious to be with you all again. Times have been hard for me, as I can see they have been hard on you all. The Dark Sister was a trap. The Eldar scum waited for us. We fought valiantly but were taken prisoner aboard one of their ships. I bode my time, searching for any weakness, learning as much as I could about my Xenos captors. Then, the moment arrived, I challenged my captor to a game of skill. My Strategic Girth prevailed, I had bested them. Before leaving, however, I was told of a cruel fate set to befall our proud chapter."
>>19506839As soon as we're done with fixing the chapter, we should contact Regon, we need to be BFF's again, and an observer's perspective on our chapter's issues could help.
>>19506843"I knew not on the planet on which I stood, but I knew it was my duty to return to my Brothers, to tell you all of what I had learned. Searching for months, I found an ancient vessel. It was not in a state of good repair. The Light of The Emperor guided and protected, I repaired the vessel and repaired the engines. Bursting through the atmosphere of that Emperor-Forsaken planet, I set course for home."
>>19506843I prefer cutting out the eldar entirely, and using metaphors of the Emperor.
>>19506878"The vessel was far from spaceworthy, it took all of my will and knowledge to keep her flying. One day, however, this was not enough. I know not what happened, there was a mighty explosion, crippling my vessel, causing me near mortal damage. I prayed to The Emperor that our course was true, that we could drift home to you, my Brothers. When I next opened my eyes, I lay in the frozen wastes"
>>19506880THEY MUST KNOW THE STORY OF THE GIRTH
>>19506776Too vague to satisfy all the questions. Your marines are not stupid.>>19506843>>19506878Are ok with this? btw, marines are asking where is that ship now. They seem to be enraged by Eldar daring to set a trap for you and applaud your cunning way to get out. However many of them doubt how much can we trust some xenos prophecy... Everyone knows after all that their gods are not real and they pray to empty idols.
>>19506917Is there a way to keep sanity in check?If we start losing it and laugh hysterically at walls, I think we will be burnt at a stake soon.
>>19506917Shark's version is 100% okay with me.
>>19506917The ship was hardly a wreckage after we came out of it.It was thanks to our power armor that we even survived, although it was destroyed as well.
>>19506907"I praised The Emperor, when taking state of my surroundings I saw a 'speeder approching. I swelled, knowing that I had been Blessed. We set back for the Fortress-Monastery when disaster struck, our 'speeder fell from the sky. With his last act, Anterion pushed me from the falling speeder. He was not so lucky as to escape himself."
>>19506917Reply:"Of course the xenos prophecy is flawed! It implied that we would be destroyed! HA! We are the Angels of Death, we will never be destroyed!"The ship:It power core was dangerously overheated, risking a cataclysmic explosion, knowing we could not risk hurting out men, we jettisoned before making planetfall.
>>19506954"Anterion's death hangs heavily upon my heart. It is in his memory that I shall make it my mission to return our Chapter to Glory. I know that times have been hard, but I have returned, and together we can grow stronger than ever before!"
>>19506976>>19506917"The Xenos cannot be trusted, but I believe there maybe some truth to their story, even if it is twisted by their Herectical religion. No matter what may come, we are The Emperor's Finest! For Honour! For Glory! For Strategic Girth! We shall prevail over any challenges as Brothers!"
>>19506974...but our orbital defences noticed no entry into the system or planet of any spacecraft. O.o>>19506932Willpower tests, but for now it all seems to be going just fine.
>>19506997This is playing in the background.http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TsNlhUxwGjU#!
>>19506997>>19506976>>19506954Marines accept the rest of your story easily.
>>19507000We noticed our land speeder was sabotaged, perhaps someone wished to kill Anterion.They may have sabotaged the orbital defenses as well.At this stage it matters not, I am here to assume command, and bring our brothers together, so we may spread the light of the emperor.
>>19507008>>19507000"I know not what happened to the vessel, all I know is that I am here, alive, as if by the grace of The Emperor himself. It is surely by His Glory that I live at all!"
Dont worry brothers!We will stand before this prophecy of death and we shall laugh in the face of death.For we are the finest warriors,the men who give of themselves to the emperor.Like clay shall he mold usand in the furnace of war will will we be forged.W will be of iron will and steely muscle.In great armor shall we be cladand with the mightiest guns will we be armed.We will be untouched by plague or disease,no sickness will blight Us.We will have tactics, strategies and machinesso that no foe can best usi n battle.We are the bulwark against the Terror.We are the Defenders of Humanity.We are Space Marinesand we shall know no fear.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA CACKLING LAUGHTER
>>19507008Awesome. So, and as I promised that sesion today will be short, we will leave it here. During the next week there should more sessions when I will have inspiration, I hope that I will see you come back and for now you can think what are you going to do during the next 4 years and how to restore chapter to glory
>>19507031What about:"Of course not, it was a small vessel, with virtually no power left, the orbital defences could not have registered it as a threat."
>>19507042Thanks Skargan, I can't wait!
>>19507039I always liked this quote, but you better save it to use before some battle
>>19507050I heavily implied that it was just short of catastrophically destroyed. Best not make up too many details in case they decide to go searching for the ship or whatever.
>>19507042Awww.....Okay then, thanks.I'll be here checking all night every night.
>>19507042Can't wait. Needing to regain trust of our brothers and save on chapter from disaster whilst controlling our fading sanity will be a breeze!Oh boy.
>>19507067The best lies are based in the truth, without too much detail to trip yourself up. I wish I had the creativity to tell the full story of Strategic Girth.
>>19507076>>19507067Yeah the fewer loose ends the better.
>>19507120/tg/ is auto archived anyway.
>>19507201thanks! I will probably browse through there too
>>19507248It auto-archives everything.And it works on multiple boards, fails sometimes if people delete their posts but whatever.
>>19507258what a shame, i thought that you can post there without captcha, but it seems when you post there, people on 4chan dont see it
