With a force of a hundred thousand throats a wave of cheers and shouts smashes into your eardrums. A loud, artificially enhanced voice of the announcer screams something in xeno tongue to the frenzied crowd. Around you, dozens of men, beasts and xenos slaughter each other for the joy of the Dark Kin in a merciless battle royale. With joy and horror you realise, that you have at last reached your destination - welcome to Commoragh. Now all you need to do is that small matter of surviving...What do you do?---Join us in this chat:http://cbe005.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.netOur wiki:http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Commoragh_Quest---GM will be back in half an hour
>>19981203Last thread http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/19969075/and now I am gone.
I'd say draw our bolt pistol, and be ready to blow apart any foolish enough to approach us.
>>19981203I suggest we use our dismembered arm as a club :)FOR THE EMPORER!
>>19981417>>19981384Arm or Bolt-pistol? You can use only one because of obvious reasons.---You are still dizzy from the jump through the damaged webway, but your combat senses are already on. You notice, that closest source of danger to you is a strange xeno who fights using chains. For a moment you think that it's an exotic weapon, when you realise that these chains were used to hold him still in his cage until he ripped them out... Xeno at the moment is feasting on remains of his most recent prey - human warrior.
>>19981769What does the xeno look like?
You are close the center of the arena that seems to be decorated with fake ruined buildings. On the second thought, they might not be fake - it would suit the character of Dark Eldar to just isolate a city block and then use it for their games without warning former inhabitants, who then would become defacto gladiators.Monster at the moment isn't interested in you.Your health: 42/80If you want to look around, roll Awareness(PE) - d100
rolled 78 = 78>>19981839Look around, might as well.
if the others are okay with it use the arm, and the body part of the opponents.song and song pic related let's go DOOMGUY on those xenos(this post do not mean rush at it to punch it...yet)
>>19981874To be honest I think we should wield our melta/bolt pistol over our severed arm....
>>19981820You could try to evaluate xeno using Lore(Xenos), but you do not have it, so you can only try to roll Perception as a substitute for Evaluate with -30 penalty for determining special qualities about the xeno, like it's strength, speed, toughness of his hide, etc.pic: his first adversary
>>19981866Ruined building have no roofs, so the combat is in plain view for the audience, but for you the walls and rubble obsucure a lor of action that you can guess is happening somewhere nearby. However you notice a huge shape half a hundred meters to the south, something that looks like a giant snake. Meanwhile, chained xeno...[less is better for you]
rolled 41 = 41>>19981945
rolled 56 = 56try to kick a wall to make it fall on it?
Our arm as our weapon, smash the first thing to attack us!
>>19981963>>19981945Chained xeno leaves the human carcass and wanders off to the side without noticing you, however that thing is now out of your field of vision and your training always reminded you, that xenos quite often are a lot more cunning than they appear to be... You should have kept it in your bolter sights.You are now in a 'hall' that is more or less surrounded by walls and rubble from all sides, but it's only high enough to block your view, you could climb over it(or even punch through it with a shoulder) easily.What do you do?Roll d100 for a secret roll
rolled 62 = 62secrets? oh goodie!
>>19982051grip our meltagun tight.
rolled 66 = 66secrets? oh goodies!try to see if we can hear something
rolled 63 = 63Try to punch a hole at the top of the rubble so you can see what is in front of you.
rolled 74 = 74>>19982076.....
No, lets use our arm
>>19982087>>19982076>>19982084You draw your meltagun and check ammo. Damn, just 3 charges. Well, it should be enough to stop Chimera in it's tracks, let's hope Dark Eldar do not throw many of those at you. You approach a wall in front of you and realise that the bricks are very old, so you just ram it with your shoulder and burst in to the next 'room'. In front of you two barbarian-like humans grip at each others throats. Their bodies are rippling with muscle and scars, they are no doubt professional warriors, but even one-handed space marine should be able to handle them both. You have a split second advantage while they are stunned after your dynamic entrance, what do you do?
rolled 31 = 31use arm don't waste ammos
>>19982149I say we charge forward and beat them to death with our arm.
2 vs. 1 = you are wielding your severed arm, meltagun is in your backpack. May Emperor have mercy on you.captcha: dumass fistart
rolled 15 = 15hit the least injured first
>>19982165You appear from a cloud of dust of a wall you just shatter like a Ghost of Vengeance, an Angel of Death that was sent to put them out of their misery. They may be humans, they may have been forced to fight for the pleasure of Dark Kin against their will, but these are just excuses and whoever or whatever stands between you and Judith shall die. And they shall die painfully. Melta-charges are few, but your strength is infinite. Your hand lifts your severed arm into the sky and then strikes them down with it, as if it was the Hammer of Gods itself.Please roll d100 for moral corruption. if you roll 70+, you get a Corruption point for pointless bloodshed of fellow humans that showed no intent to harm you.Also, you gain +1 to Brawling
rolled 18 = 18luck runs out eventually so if I fail I stop rolling
rolled 68 = 68Corruption time
>>19982267Don't worry, you get corruption for things such as this only while you are relative 'virgin' corruption-wise, after a few more points you'll need to slaughter villages and after a first mutation or two you'll have to get in some deep shit to gain more. Well, but that's easy here, you are in the warp, afterall, even if somewhat shielded by the Webway.
rolled 48 = 48search for a place to ambush another opponent
>>19982388No Hiding! Only war!
Are we picking up any vox signals or any sort of equivalent?
>>19982302>>19982297"They... They would have attacked me anyway." You check their bodies and notice Dark Eldar runes, branded on their bodies. "They were already corrupted, I could have done nothing to save them... My actions were just." However you are still not sure whether thoughts like this were real conclusions or just excuses of a encroaching madness and corruption...As you look around the room, you find:2 collars with nametags(from gladiators)shattered steel shield(might take another hit or two, but not more)One handed axe with xeno-steel blade, seems to be very sharpMono-blade steel sword4 (poisoned?) throwing knivesThere still are lots of sounds of combat from behind the walls around you. What do you do?
>>19982418Your power armour suffered an EMP attack prior to entering the Webway, it is malfunctioning and is barely able to carry it's own weight. Auto-senses, combat drug systems, comms, etc. are fried, you need to get someone with technical knowledge to fix it.
>>19982461Perhaps we'd be better off removing it and storing it?We're very noticeable wearing Astartes Power Armour, and it's weighing us down...It offers some protection but then blending in would probably do the same?We could just look like a gigantic human gladiator
Pick up axe and poisoned blades, prepare for whats behind wall
>>19982490It might be a good idea, or at least you are right about blending in easier. You could take off your armour in about 5 minutes, would you like to do that?(putting it back on with one arm would take around half an hour)>>19982493Axe is relatively big, so you'll have to discard either meltagun or your arm. Power Armour backpack is not suited for carrying a lot of stuff around. You fix knives near your belt.
>>19982539I'd say discard the arm.
Well old freind, its been nice knowing you.Drop our arm, after taking out a nice meaty bite
>>19982570I suggest not eating ourselvesThat seems like something a filthy xenos would doAnd besides, we can live on wood and rocks if need be
>>19982570You notice, that after entering the webway you started getting very strange urges, but you discard this thought and take a huge bite from your severed arm. Tastes... Good. +1 HPMeanwhile, you hear someone screaming around 20 meters from you. Well, one opponent less.
>>19982599D:< our battle brothers the soul eaters are renowned for their canabalistic rites! do you offend their honour? This body is but a tool of the emporer, let us taste of sweet meat that we might better face and destroy his foes!
>>19982624Maintain a defensive stance and try to get to higher ground
alright, lets grab the axe and Koolaid man through some walls
>>19982652proper term is eversor
>>19982629I do offend their honourThe emperor means that we smite our enemies with the might of our armsNot that we glut our selfish hungers on the holy flesh he has gifted us
>>19982676Only to serve his will, but save theology for later, now smashy smashy
>>19982646>>19982652I'd suggest deciding what exactly you do in the chat, because otherwise when I get conflicting orders, i'll pick at random. This time Luigi is lucky.---You look around and notice some ancient pillars nearby. You cannot climb on top of them because of having just one arm, but you think you could jump from smaller pillars onto higher ones, however this would require some fine acrobatic skills. Agility roll (-20), if you decide to do this. Otherwise, you can just try to climb onto one of the rubble piles, but there you will be in the centre of the arena and open to attack from all sides... You know that if you would want to ambush someone, you would wait in a place like this.
rolled 39 = 39We would like to put our previously earned EXP into close quarters fighting, and Wrrryyyy through the walls, looking for enemies to fight, preferably Xenos
The will of the Emperor is with usTo hide from our enemies would be to shame HimClimb rubble pileScream bloodcurdling challenge with every ounce of zealotry we can musterThe enemies of the Emperor shall die this day
>>19982719I think we should remain in the corners/shadows, ready to ambush anyone who poses an immediate threat.
>>19982755For xp, i'll need confirmation from at least 2 other players for this to pass.General rules for xp are:1 xp = +d5 stat points1 xp = +d10 skill points1 xp = weak/minor trait2 xp = medium trait3 xp = serious trait---Special offers(they depend on what you did recently):+1 Corruption+d6 Brawling+d6 Awareness---Special note for old guard players - you might have noticed, that in Commoragh Quest it is a lot 'cheaper' to upgrade character, this is because of two reasons - I don't expect Montus to live long and even though he's superhuman Space Marine, he still is inferior to Chapter Master. Montus' statistic of 50 is roughly equal to Chapter Master's 30. Yes, life is unfair, even heroes are not all equally heroic.

Then, you take a look around and scream in defiance of this city, this nest of xeno heresy... From atop your high position, you notice that fight is comming to an end, you notice:-Giant Serpent still roaming outer ruins, where there is less rubble-Chained Xeno feasting on remains of a Tau squad-4 human gladiators, wandering through the ruins separately, you think one of them is heretic, because he has Chaos star tatooed on his forehead.-Some strange metallic warrior shambles through the ruins, he reminds you a little bit of reports about Dark Mechanicus and their heretical creations...-And a strange light glinting from among the rubble on the other side of arena, it's... It's a scope![rolling]

All you need to figure out now is how to get to that bastard hundred meters away without getting wall painted with your brains.>>19983205You medidate for a minute, while lying in cover, repeating auto-hypnosis chants that stop your survival instincts from kicking in and making you go into coma. You succeed, but barely.Armour was damaged -d10% integrityAlso, one more d10 will determine which shoulder was hit. 1-5 is for right shoulder(bad for you).
rolled 10 = 10>>19983315rolling for shoulder hit

rolled 10, 4 = 14>>19983315>>19983327I rolled for those things, Captain, sorry that won't take your roll(it's good for you, i rolled less).Your armour is now at 57% integrity.You lost control of your right(and only) arm, because the bullet blew out most of the tendons and nerves that your body used to command it. Axe falls out of your paralysed arm. What do you do?
Do not give him another shotWe're getting fucked hereCharge through the inside walls of buildings rather than walking around outsideHe can't shoot what he can't seeEnter Koolaid mode and stomp him in to mush
rolled 33 = 33>>19983407>>19983451Walls are not thick or strong enough to stop a bullet, once he hears/sees the dust from you charging through the walls, he will take a shot. Also, because you have no arms you can control, you'll have to roll body for each wall you want to bring down. On critical failure, you will reopen your recent wounds and suffer more damage. Atm you are in cover where sniper can't see you. You see no obvious way around him, the bastard chose a good position. Also, between you and him there more than likely to be more gladiators... Speaking of which - [less is better for you]
>>19983492Then again, doors are always an option right?Less noticeable and suchBut for the moment, we're slightly pinned
>>19983492BLAM! You hear someone scream in a distance, as if his leg was just torn off.BLAM!Screaming stops.For a moment you have almost forgot, that you are bleeding for the pleasure of Dark Eldar, but the voice of Arena announcer reminds this essential fact for you. It's a real shame, that you have no idea what is he talking about, but his tone seems to be apologetic and indicate sadness. Crowd starts booing.what do you do?
rolled 8 = 8Keep to cover, but sing praises to his name!
>>19983596You manage to find a safe spot, where you continue to wait for status quo to change. For now, time is your ally - your superhuman regeneration is slowly doing it's work.+1 HPFor some time you can hear the sound of combat, as gladiators continue slaughtering each other, but you no longer hear sniper's shots, he's either dead or waiting for you. You also notice, that scores of Dark Eldar are leaving the arena, however they are too far to understand their motivations.Do you continue to sit in cover or go for it?
>>19983705Kick a rock out from behind our coverPerhaps if he's watching he'll take a twitch shot?
rolled 8 = 8>>19983705Peek out, investigate arena
rolled 15 = 15>>19983720
>>19983720We should ensure he only starts seeing the rock once it's far away from us, otherwise the sniper may predict our position and fuck us up even more-so than we are now (if that's possible....).
>>19983745Nothing happens.>>19983737You take a quick look from the other side of the wall, hoping that sniper is distracter by your rock and quickly scan the are. Giant snake lies dead, so do most, if not all, of the other gladiators. You can't see the sniper. Also, you notice one more thing... The gates in the far end of the arena are opening.+1 Awareness for critical success
rolled 64 = 64Sneaky combat crawl mode
rolled 88 = 88>>19983803Lets move towards the opening gate, see if we can see whats coming out without revealing ourselves too much. Make good use of cover, Montus!
>>19983858>>19983868As you come closer to the gate, you notice three figures coming out... Three gorgeous, stunning women, clad in symbolical armour and armed with the most wicked weapons Dark Eldar can think off. They seem to be walking at ease, as if going through their back garden, not a combat zone.What do you do?
>>19983938Stand tall, let them approach us, do not act threateningly.
rolled 39 = 39>>19983938"Greetings.... ladies"Stand, stoically await gruesome death and or inspection.

>>19983968>>19983978>>19983981>>19984043As you walk out from the ruins and they see you, wytches look at you in a strange surprised way and then start laughing at you.What do you do?
rolled 80 = 80>>19984100"Guess this warrior of mans pretty...'armless?"We say with a grin, hoping they understand gothic enough to get the joke. And that they take it in a positive way
rolled 99 = 99>>19984200Only one of them seems to react to your joke, she shows her teeth, but not in a 'you are funny' way, but more like 'i'll bite your balls off'. She says something to get her companions and they laugh once more, but this time in a more wicked way. Then, one of them suddenly throws something at you. Do you dodge? If yes, roll d100 in contested roll.
rolled 29 = 29>>19984253dodging....
rolled 50 = 50>>19984295>>19984253Your warrior's eye instantly recognises the object, even though it's of non-human origin and shaped differently - it's a grenade! However you realise, that there is no way to dodge it's blast radius, but your combat instincts work faster than your brains - you jump to the side and kick grenade while it's still in the air. By some strange twist of luck, grenade flies right back at th wytch who threw it, landing in her mouth. For a split second you meet her eyes, full of surprise and terror. Then, she gets(or gives?) the strongest blowjob of her life, her head exploding like a ripe melon. Grenade is not a frag, but some kind of acid-based explosive, so it splashes onto her friends chest and eats through her metal bra, beautiful white breast and muscles underneath them right into her heart. She screams like a bitch. However the third one is unscathed. She... [roll]
>>19984421Hey, I bet you read the Dark Eldar description for that maneuver
>>19984421...laughs out, then nods her head approvingly. She looks at you, shows her canine teeth again and starts approaching you with evil intent in her eyes. What do you do?
>>19984450It's past 2 am here and englishis not my native language, please elaborate what you mean, I don't get it.
>>19984450It's past 2 am here, english is not my native language and I am tired, could please elaborate what you mean? I didn't really get you.
>>19984461Considering dark elves probably like to keep their enemies where you they can see them, killing those two probably made miss witchies life easier. She's probably going to adopt you as a pet or something.

rolled 62 = 62>>19984534>>19984640As she approaches you, she opens her mouth, probably ready to say "Any last words?" or some other xeno bullshit, but you know better than to let her speak. You headbutt her straight into her beautiful face, breaking her nose and stunning her long enough to jump into the air and spin-kick her straight into her belly, sending her flying. You have the initiative, she's still stunned and suprised, trying to get up. What do you do?
rolled 63 = 63Stomp her head into the floor, screaming"HIS WILL BE DONE!!!"
>>19984709As you lift your foot and prepare to give her the taste of Retribution, she looks up at you and shouts in despair:"Spare my baby! I am pregnant!"What do you do?

>>19984764Break her arms, and her legs.And then ask the audience if we should spare the trueborn, or It's mother.
rolled 62 = 62A look of momentary sadness passes Montus' eyes as he brings his foot down to her head."Emporer have mercy on both your souls."

A knife into the wound? You didn't even flinch.>>19985026However body is not as strong as the mind... You feel as your limbs grow heavy and your hearts start to skip a beat and desynchronise, poison works through your metabolism almost instantly, not strong enough to kill you, but strong enough to incapacitate you. Slowly, like an avalanche from the mountain, you fall down on your side. You hear distant cheering from the tribunes, it seems you have made impression at least for someone before your demise. Xeno drags her mangled body closer to you and looks into your eyes, knowing that you are helpless. Her nose still bleeds, but she smiles. Then, in perfectly clear Gothic she whispers into your ear:"You are all mine now, big boy..."Then you pass out.

>>19985181WELL WELL, HELLO MR. FATE POINT.
>>19985186Ok, against her better judgement she decided to keep you alive. It seems there will be another session, I can give out xp now.>>19985181Luigi, your roll is impressive, but you have nor arms to perform this attack and your legs are too far and too heavy... For the sake of nice last roll, i'll take it for the first test next session, if you will want to.So, you get +5 xp for this session, good job everyone.Also, Kograt, despite his constant CHARGE and HEAD THROUGH THE WALL attitude showed us that Montus still has some place for compassion in his two big hearts, even if it was for deception. I think this deserves losing a Corruption point or 3 xp points, whatever you choose.Session over, archived here http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.htmlAs always, criticism and questions are welcome, i'll stay here for the next 10 minutes
rolled 19 = 19>>19985277Lets grab that exp then :)
>>19985277Thanks Skargan, much appreciated, as always.I would personally vote for +3xp as opposed to -1 corruption, seeing as we only have 1 corruption at the moment.So overall I want +8xp, delicious....
>>19985324>>19985323Done, +8 xp and we'll spend them next session. Ok, tommorow is EU3 night, so at the earliest next session will be monday. Maybe i'll prepare for main quest, but if I am too lazy, we'll continue Commoragh.
>>19982539I would say the proportion of the head to the rest of the body in this drawing is quite off. Looks like other aspects got bigger ie big hands and feet but still tiny head.
