Rolled 5, 20 = 25Parts 1 through 4:http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/22819904/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22836946/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22894580/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/22912421/2d20, first roll determines priority of action in case of conflict, second determines success of action. Can roll multiple dice for multiple actions with multiple characters.Last time: The merchant vessel the acolytes boarded came under attack shortly after entering that home stretch, the 4 day jump that would bring the acolytes home. Warp beasts, and chaos marines lead by a Daemon (Prince or Greater?) attacked, killing all those in command at the bridge and causing horrific casualties. Sebastiano got punched in the dick by Berold's new (girl?)friend, and managed to scare away said big Daemon by firing a lascannon out of his eye. Kirstin got ahold of an autocannon, Hadrak almost got crushed to death and now they're back in realspace, repairing the ship, souping up the defenses and preparing to leave once more.(Cont'd)
Rolled 11, 20 = 31Character descriptions, reading optional.>Sebastiano Berruti - Scum - Autogun/Obnoxiously-Gold-Trimmed-Handcannon/Flamer. Thinks himself a ladies man. He's actually not half bad. Right eye's been replaced with a pretty high quality aug made my Hadrak, able to shoot lasers and such. Is able to pull a higher gothic accent off really well for some reason. I've actually lost track of what weapons he has on him and what ones he's lost to Hadrak again.>Hadrak Abajian - Techpriest - Lasgun/Mechandrites. Kleptomaniac, particularly keeps on stealing Sebastiano's autopistol. He's friendly enough, although a bit cold while he's working. Doubles as the medic. Got a hold of a deflector field generator and fixed it up. Also has Seb's autopistol, and has built him a leg that he hopes to replace the organic one with at some point. Working on an arm for the same. Had his midsection and servoharness crushed by a giant mutant crab claw. Got better.>Nora Hinfalliger - Arbites - Combat Auto-shotgun/Revolver. Not originally with the party. In a relationship with Kirstin. Doesn't seem to care for most of the party members aside from her. Warming up a bit though.>Kirstin Fritzen - Guardsman - Lasgun/Heavy Stubber/Grenades. Burn on her neck from a lasbolt. In relationship with Nora. Closest thing to a straightman in the group, except she isn't straight and isn't a man. Found an autocannon. Obviously not going to carry it around EVERYWHERE, but if she needs it it's there.>Berold Schuster - Assassin - Longlas (With some Hotshots)/Silenced Pistol. Very shy. Very bad at talking to people. Met a nice girl at the shooting range though.>Ellyn Ciarra - Assassin - Sniper Rifle/Laspistol/Knives. Is the nice girl from shooting range. Punched Sebastiano in the dick. Likes Berold. Outgoing and cheerful. Pretty much the opposite of him. Part of crew now or not?
The Black Ship and the accompanying Naval Fleet have cut contact with the acolyte vessel, and now seem occupied with whatever they were doing before. Once the ship is cleaned up, with no captain, Hadrak takes the reigns. Medics say his spine is mangled by that crab claw and he really shouldn't be walking around so much but they're fleshies, so what do they know? He repairs the broken consoles and begins to teach some of the smarter hands how to operate them, as he improves the ship's weapons and defenses. He's also trying to get Sebastiano to learn how to operate the machinery, having shown a bit of a knack for it previously.The acolytes have moved out of their shared quarters, and now each have their own room, taking over the living areas of the now-deceased command crew. They're nice enough. Hadrak takes the captain's quarters himself, and keeps the box there locked away in a chest. Ellyn still doesn't know about it, but doesn't inquire either.They have a few hours before departing for warpspace again. Any final preparations they should do?>Jesus I need to cut down on these intros. Probably skip the character descriptions next time, we all know what they're like by now.
Rolled 19, 20 = 39buy as much amo for the ship as possible
Rolled 12, 3 = 15>>22949900>>22949910>>22949949all 20s... anyway Hadrak should see about working on a replacement spine if he ruins his organic one.
>>22949949In a massive stroke of luck, one of the inquisitors aboard the Black Ship knows Karras, and owes him a favour. He decides to repay it by convincing the leaders of the Navy fleet to help out with arming up the merchant vessel. Cargo bays are emptied of their less-valuable goods and filled with weaponry and ammunition instead. It isn't long before this escort-sized ship has the weaponry and ammunition of a small cruiser. Hadrak is pleased with this, and proud to be at the bridge of what used to be a simple transport, but is something much, much worse now.
>>22949973The medics insist on Hadrak fixing up his spine, they really do, but he believes something as mundane as a spinal cord is a waste of his time and efforts, and instead continues to work on Sebastiano's new arm. His back is in pain, there's a few dents in his servo harness and he walks a bit slower than before, but does it matter? Not to him.
Rolled 18, 10 = 28>>22949995hadrak designs a new super powered body for himself to use. uses some of the new supplies to do this
>>22950020The Navy provided lots of ship-board weapons, the more elite soldiers from earlier, a new navigator and not much else. Hadrak has plenty of bits and bobs, but to replace all his limbs, organs and everything else with metal, while an appealing idea, is not something he can do before they jump, or even before they arrive. And if another attack comes he doesn't want to be lying on the operating table when it happens. That would be illogical.Hadrak takes Sebastiano up to the control room/bridge and plunks him down on the weapons console. He's spent their time in realspace teaching him how to operate it, and he's actually not half bad. Comes from being born in a hive, supposedly. The bridge crew take up positions, and those elsewhere in the ship get ready for a jump, the survivors of the last one ever paranoid of those... things coming out of the walls again.A low hum grows in volume, then stops. Outside, the ship shudders for a second as the Geller fields activate, then vanishes from realspace. The acolytes, now with a full vessel brimming with weaponry under their control, enter the warp for what is hopefully the last time. Three days to kill, waiting for their misfortunes to cease. How shall it be filled?
Rolled 5, 3 = 8Nora and Kirstin find a quiet spot for some alone time. They bring the best weapons they can along with them for a just in case.
Rolled 9, 18 = 27Hadrak decides to listen to the medics finally and rests
Rolled 19, 18 = 37Sebastiano learns everything he can about using the ships weapons
Rolled 17, 18 = 35>>22950107Sebas finds some booze and starts hitting on girl whom has the misfortune of meeting him
Rolled 11, 8 = 19Belrod heads back to the shooting range with ellyn
Rolled 14, 10 = 24Berold and Ellyn also seek some alone time. They both bring their weapons as well.
>>22950124should be any girl
>>22950094Kirstin keeps trying to spend some quiet time with Nora, but the latter is on edge. Even when they get together on the observation deck she insists on having her shotgun there. An argument erupts when Kirstin tells her to relax, and they storm off to separate rooms, for that night-cycle. No attack comes.>>22950107Hadrak, meanwhile is beginning to feel the effects of that claw far more, and complains of numbness in his feet a few times. Eventually he realizes that maybe overwork is contributing, and gets one of his more trustworthy bridge crewmen to take over for the rest of the jump, while he gets some much-needed rest in his bunk. >>22950119Sebastiano meanwhile has continued to train himself with the weapons. He can't fire them in the middle of a warp jump, but with surprising intelligence he still works out the fastest ways to access and target them all, with the help of the bed-ridden Hadrak every once in a while.>>22950124He catches the eye of one of the ladies operating weapons alongside, and they get drinks before returning to his quarters. Neither is quite as proficient at their drills the next morning, but neither seems to care.>>22950135>>22950138>tfw their alone time IS going to the shooting range.Berold and Ellyn do together what they both do best; sharpshoot. They exchange techniques, try out each other's weapons, check targets with each other, do drills, and just shoot targets down at the range. Slow, and unromantic for some, but for them it's a long walk on the beach, hands clasped, under the moonlight.Day 2?
Rolled 16, 19, 12, 5 = 52>>22950188hadrak tinkers with the sebas's futre arm and leg
Rolled 4, 1 = 5isn't the leg as tricked out as it can be?Kirsten and Nora try to make up. >If this causes them to break up Im quitting
Rolled 3, 17, 19, 11 = 50>>22950218can always make it more laddierollin for Kristin to bring flowers and for them and cashing in on happy ending rollsecond roll for ellyn-belrod relations increase
Rolled 19, 3 = 22rolling for sebass to get his new leg and or arm
>>22950206Of course, Hadrak can't stay sleeping forever, and has some of the servitors bring him components and help him up. He begins to work on Sebastiano's arm again, now looking for a way to integrate his gold-plated handcannon into it. Over the course of the day he makes great progress, and creates a metallic, sleek arm with a revolver (read, the handcannon) that slips out the side and can fire at impulse. Additionally the fingers can grow small, sharp knives, and the palm has a pneumatic hammer that should add some kick to his punches. Overall it's a pretty well-built hand, if he says so himself. He also takes a look at the leg, but honestly can't think of anything else to add to it by this point. Just like all the previous times he's looked at the leg and thought of what to add. At one point Sebastiano walks in with his arm draped around that same weapons officer from before, and asks what those things are. Hadrak says that they're new guns, and apparently satisfied, he leaves to find his own bunk.>>22950263Hadrak looks for Sebastiano later on, to try and get him his new arm, but can't seem to find him, unfortunately.>>22950218>>22950238Kirstin isn't happy about the argument, and when she tries to talk to Nora she just gets a door in the face. She's angry at first, but gets over it, even if Nora doesn't want to talk. Eventually she gets some flowers from the leftover cargo the merchants were shipping, and leaves them at the door with an apology note. She doesn't see Nora, but when she later passes by the flowers are gone.Ellyn and Berold spend another day on the range before going back to take a nice dinner back to her quarters. When they finish eating she hints that he should spend the night. He either doesn't get it, or doesn't feel confident enough to, and leaves. She's not angry, but she is a bit disappointed by the turn of events. Maybe it's just the warp. They'll be back into reality tomorrow, so she'll see if that's really it.Day 3?
Rolled 10, 4, 9, 17 = 40>>22950288Hadrak installs the arm and leg on Sebas and steals auto pistol off of him
>>22950306The next day, Hadrak feels good enough to walk, and waits outside Sebastiano's room with his "surprise". Sebastiano walks out, sees the new arm and leg, and immediately gets back in and locks the door, telling the "Mad bluddy dock stay away from me ye bludger!"Not before Hadrak takes the autopistol back. Might as well add it alongside the revolver right?
Rolled 12, 2, 19, 15 = 48>>22950344Sebas gets wasted and decides a robo arm and leg is a good idearolling for progress on belrod-ellyn front
Rolled 6, 15 = 21>>22950344Rolling for PILOT to intercept them.
Rolled 13, 5 = 18>>22950376Also rolling for RAGE.
Rolled 16, 17 = 33>>22950382rolling for pilot to be extra friendly
Rolled 11, 4 = 15>>22950391Rolling for his friendship to be just a masquerade.
>>22950351Well aware that Hadrak wants his leg gone, Sebastiano denies his squeeze another go at it for the last day, and stays sober and on guard. Hadrak never gets a chance, for now, and eventually goes back to the helm, sporting a wooden walking stick he found in the hold.Meanwhile, Berold and Ellyn skip the range, and instead go for a dinner in one of the quieter eating areas of the ship. She tells him to dress "nicely", and after much deliberation (and some help from Kirstin) he ditches the cloak and bandoliers, opting for a navy blue jacket and corduroys. Kirstin stifles a laugh and tells him he looks great, before telling him to "Go get 'er" with a wink.Ellyn's wearing a very nice red dress, that "An old boyfriend" got her for her birthday once. It's a pleasant dinner, and he walks her back to her quarters. Surprisingly, he gives her a kiss at the end of the night, and once the shock wears off she smiles warmly, and they part ways. A few hours later the ship enters realspace once more, to an unwelcome sight.(cont'd)
>>22950458>>22950376>>22950382>>22950391>>22950424Pretty much the moment they enter space again, something rams them. Hadrak calls Sebastiano up to help, but by the time he arrives the other ship has dislodged itself. Before the weapons can heat up, someone on the other ship hails and says they were under duress, but "The guy's gone now, he took one of the escape pods or something, he attached stuff to our engines and we can't get rid of it, HELP US!"At that point, a rapidly-moving pod is seen heading directly towards the bridge. Weapons fire at it to no avail, and Hadrak yells for everyone to clear the area, get out of the room. Before he and Sebastiano can leave as well, it impacts. The pod shatters through the observation glass, almost causing the two to be sucked out of the hull along with the air. Moments before they lose their grip, the emergency retention field activates, and air begins pumping back into the room. The pod slowly opens, and a huge, menacing and vaguely recognizable figure climbs out. It smiles, as much as something with very little of a face remaining can smile, and says in a robotic tone;"It's been a long time, my friends, hasn't it?"
>>22950344haha, Hadrak is slowly going to steal every weapon sebas has until the only way for sebas to get them back is to replace his limbs with the ones Hadrak has built, that contain all his weapons
>>22950382>>22950424so his rage failed>>22950391and now he is friendlywell done /tg/, we made an arch nemesis, then added him to the party

Rolled 16, 18 = 34>>22950461Pilot is trying to convince them to give him the box for safe keeping.
Rolled 3, 15 = 18Nora goes to secure the box, meeting Kirstin on the way

Rolled 20, 18 = 38>>22950522Rolling for pilot to flirt with sebas.
Rolled 17, 13 = 30>>22950522seb seeing all those prosthetics on the pilot develops a deep fear he will end up the same way. He is now hyperaware of the pilots actions
Rolled 16, 15 = 31sebass seduces him?
I'm not sure I like the way this is going
Rolled 13, 5 = 18>>22950553No pilot seduces him.(It's part of his well thought masterplan)
Rolled 16, 6 = 22>>22950461rolling for hadrak to steal random limbs/augments from the Pilot, to put on Sebas at a later time
>>22950488Hadrak recovers his breath, and his cane; the blast doors to the control room automatically sealed after the observation window shattered, but they should re-open once the oxygen has been pumped in fully.Meanwhile, he worms his way into the machine spirits of the thing's augmentations; they're corrupt, they're filthy, they're heretical, and they're amazingly well built. Filled with combat drugs, extra muscle, everything. He tries to shut them down, and manages to sever the link they've got to the brain, paralyzing him for but a few seconds. It's enough, and he contacts the rest through the PA.>>22950515Nora hears the announcement from Hadrak following the ruckus, and realizes that something probably wants the box. She runs to Hadrak's quarters, resorting to shooting the trunk with her shotgun to get the box out to hold onto. Kirstin has thought the exact same thing, and bursts in a few seconds later with her stubber. They look at each other in silence for a little while, before Nora wordlessly indicates to follow her up to the bridge. Kirstin follows behind.>>22950499>>22950502>>22950522>>22950536>>22950566>>22950553>Ridiculous? Ridiculous.Sebastiano pulls himself up, as the former pilot begins to regain control of his limbs, and tries to talk the man down. It looks like he's succeeding; asking for the man's name was probably a good start. The pilot had been warming up the weapons built into his arms, but it almost seems like he's about to lower them.>>22950538>>22950569Then, he sees all of the augments, and realizes what Hadrak is trying to make him. He turns to Hadrak, who meanwhile is thirstily eyeing the EXTREMELY well made "gifts" that he has. If he could just grab one... he walks closer, and reaches out. The pilot raises a warning arm, but Hadrak's medical mechandrite has already started up a saw. Seeing a threat, the weapons begin to heat up once more, and his electronic breathing becomes heavier. Angrier.
Rolled 11, 6 = 17Hadrak backs off... and steals from seb instead
Rolled 5, 3, 3, 7, 1, 13 = 32>>22950560Hadrak says stay still while i cleanse your tainted machinery (really means it) successfully clenses the partsalso removes the parts that which makes him angry

Rolled 19, 7 = 26Pilot self-destructs and blows a massive hole in the ship, hurling Hadrak and Sebastiano (both on the barest edge of consciousness) into space, wherein they will perish if not rescued in a crucial thirty second period.
Rolled 19, 15, 18, 15, 11, 13 = 91>>22950646hadrak being uses his mechandrites to lash him and sebas in the bridge moves to repair the bridge later and salvage what parts he can from the pilot
>>22950625>>22950628>>22950631Well...>>22950619>>22950637Sebastiano hisses at Hadrak to step back, and keeps trying to calm the pilot down, even appealing to his sense of piety. Weapons still hot, the pilot remains silent, a low metallic growl (or purr?) coming from his chest.>>22950607>>22950614>Conflict in first part, first post rolls betterHadrak takes a few cautionary steps back from the weaponized limbs, a mechandrite reaching over to Sebastiano's holster before being knocked down. "Now's not the time yeh munt"Hadrak ignores this, and tries to tell the big man that he just "wants to take away those parts, that's all"This does not make the pilot happy, and he opens fire. Hadrak's back might be ruined but he still pushes himself out of the way with the help of the mechandrites, and Sebastiano ducks behind a few consoles opposite from him. He sees Berold and Ellyn floating around outside in void suits. For some reason.>>22950620Nora realized the danger of the item upon reaching the blast door a few minutes ago, and figures that if Karras wants it open so bad he probably has enough stuff to undo this; she gets a lascutter and roughly welds it shut. She can probably make Hadrak do it properly later on.>>22950637Berold and Ellyn, meanwhile met up and made their way to the control room too, running into the same blast door as the others. However, Ellyn spots some void suits sitting in a safety closet nearby, and tells Berold to slip one on. The bulky suits are uncomfortable, and Berold's worried they didn't put them on right, but they don't inhibit shooting and it isn't much longer before they get outside, getting into sight of the room as the pilot opens fire on Sebastiano and Hadrak.>>22950674I don't even know what that means so I'm going to ignore it.
>>22950687probably was meant for this suicide blast>>22950646

>>22950722>>22950734Ellyn and Berold share a look, brace themselves against a fin of the ship, take aim, and fire. A hot shot charge and an explosive round are enough to distract the pilot, and he stumbles forward, a decent chunk of his midsection missing. But he lives on, for now.>>22950725The other vessel (still occupied, someone hailed remember?) contacts again. "Please help us we found out what it was, he attached bombs, we can't get them off there's bombs oh we're all gon-"It goes silent. In the vacuum of the void, you can't hear the explosion, but you can see it, a ship engulfed in flame. Berold and Ellyn feel the shockwave, but hold tight and avoid flying off or flying apart.>>22950739>>22950750>>22950760Hadrak meanwhile tries to saw off one of the arms of the pilot, almost getting halfway there before being violently thrown off by an electrical explosion. His mechandrites are overloaded, and fall limp. He goes blind as the circuitry in his artificial eyes overloads then shuts off. His system begins to reboot as he tries in vain to lift himself off the ground without the assistance of a cane or bionics.>>22950746Sebastiano is still yelling at the pilot to stop from behind the consoles, but he's beyond consolation now, and a high-power lasbolt flies past his head through the console, followed by a heavy club, stopping inches above his head, making a deep dent in the metal and screens.>>22950754Ten of the elite soldiers show up to see Nora and Kirstin trying to get through the door. They aren't much help, for the moment.>>22950772>>22950782>>22950785>>22950786>>22950799Well I guess Hardrak is a grox. On the other ship. That just blew up.

Rolled 12, 17, 7, 8 = 44Nora and Kirstin realize that it's a stupid idea to bring the box TOWARDS whatever's gunning for it this time, and instead move towards the other end of the ship to secure it.More elite soldiers show up, this time with explosives for breaching.
Rolled 11, 17, 3, 16 = 47>>22950874Pilot picks up a door and hurls at the so called elite soldiers.

>>22950824Nope.>>22950829>>22950840Berold and Ellyn line up a second shot. Berold's misses, but Ellyn's strikes true, and nails him in the upper back. He spins around and fires a few shots from his overcharged arm-lasgun, but she pushes off and away, avoiding them quite nimbly despite the suit.>>22950834Sebastiano reaches for his autogun, and opens up. The bullets hit him, but for the most part plink off ineffectually. Still, he has fleshy bits remaining, and feels the bite in the back of his neck. Somehow he's taken all of these hits and still moves around uninhibited, if bleeding a bit. He swings the club at the now-exposed Sebastiano, and gets him in the ribs, either breaking or bruising a few, and tossing him against the wall. It's almost as bad as when that lady punched him in the crotch.>>22950844Kirstin pushes Nora back, and plants two Krak grenades on the door before running herself. It's no use though, and the doors remain unaffected.>>22950847>>22950862>>22950852"Now that I have your attention, where is it? I merely wish to take it for myself, and the Emperor you so admire."Hadrak sees right through this, and between coughs asks "Those augmentations. Granted by Emperor's servants. Extremely unlikely. Chaotic. Heretical. Scum."(Cont'd)
>>22950930This enrages the pilot. "I was one of YOU!" he throws his club at the blind techpriest, knocking him against the wall again. "I WAS LEFT FOR DEAD!" He smashes a nearby screen. "That is NO end for a loyal servant! But now you shall know... and your friends will too, eventually."He hears the explosion from outside. They'll be coming soon. He walks over to the console controlling safety, activates the rebreather inside his body, and deactivates the oxygen pump and emergency force field. He manages to keep his grip, but the injured Sebastiano and Hadrak go flying out along with the air.>>22950874Kirstin and Nora realize that protecting the box is their first priority, and begin running for it, just as the rest of the 20 soldiers arrive with a pneumatic ram.

>>22950953>>22950956>>22950957>>22950990Hadrak finally reboots as he's flying out, and clutches at Sebastiano with his reactivated mechandrites. Unfortunately, his eyes come on a second too late and he misses the edge of the ship. They fly out, and Hadrak grabs onto Berold, who's holding onto Ellyn, who's holding onto the edge. They kill their momentum, Hadrak and Sebastiano desperately holding their breath, and hurry back to an airlock, but not before Sebastiano passes out completely from the cold and lack of air. Hadrak is a bit more resilient and collapses against a wall, exhausted, as the airlock doors close. Ellyn looks ready to go back out and end this, but Berold holds her back, reasoning that they need to keep together to keep safe.>>22950960Most of the elites dodge the door, one of them being hit by it and flying backwards into the hallway with ribs cracked and penetrating his lungs. The others open fire, but while he's a big target, the pilot's also a fast one, and he gets close enough to club another two to death with his bear hands, firing into the unit as they flail around without air.

>>22951045>does CPR a tad harder than required and breaking his sternumWhat the fuck.
>>22951055breaking/fracturing the sternum is actually pretty common for first responders whose only concern is to resuscitate a person, bones can heal, but not if the person dies
>>22951027>>22951036They rally themselves, attaching rebreathers (one of them dying of asphyxiation before he gets his on), and fire off a volley. He fires back, killing another two just before a third volley is unloaded. He's affected by this one, in particular the plasma shot from one of the troopers, and is blown out of the ship, smoldering (both on fire and very angry). He begins to lose conciousness as he begins his descent into the atmosphere of the planet the ship orbits.>>22951045Berold does his best to get Hadrak back on his feet, but the cold steel of his mechanicus body doesn't warm up easily. Hadrak assures him that "I shall be fine, given a minute"Meanwhile, Ellyn takes off the helmet and gloves of her void suit to check up on Sebastiano, and realizes that he's not breathing. It's unappealing, and she certainly doesn't like him, but she wouldn't want to just let a friend of Berold's die like that. She pushes on his chest, then gives him a breath, then compressions, then a breath, then compressions.Well, Sebastiano actually revived when she first started doing compressions, but was only vaguely awake (and was alright with the whole breath thing too). On that last compression though, there's a crack, and his bruised rib becomes broken. He comes alive, yelling in pain, and Ellyn sits back, relieved. The other end of the airlock opens, revealing Kirstin and Nora with the partially-welded box."Soldiers just came back. Only 12 of them left. They said they knocked him out, and then threw him from the ship. He should be burning up in the atmosphere right about now." They smile at the group, then each other. Looks like they've made up.

He's lost that nice wooden cane though, and seems disappointed. Kirstin and Berold call over the medical crews, and Sebastiano is carried out moaning in pain on a stretcher, but not before calling Ellyn a "Crazy psycho werffle crackin' my ribs punchin' my knob" in a feverish tone. She seems pleased by this perception of her.>>22951100Meanwhile, some of the repair crew don void suits and begin to repair the damage to the bridge, fixing up scanners, the observation windows, and broken consoles. Alas, Hadrak, while recovering well, isn't really in shape to help out. He does make himself a nice new brushed steel cane instead though. Sebastiano passes out again once he reaches the medbay, but his ribs are set and don't look like they've destroyed any of his organs. Hadrak, in the cot next to him, begins to plot how best to replace his limbs.Within the hour the crew have recovered the scanners, and report; the planet below is indeed the one they were supposed to arrive at. Karras should be waiting down below, in one of the many bunkers and fortresses located throughout. There is no response to hails though; something is jamming the signal. Additionally, large pulses and explosions are detected down below, although if there's other ships in orbit they're far away, cloaked, or out of sight on the other side of the planet.

>>22951143>>22951176Kirstin and Nora hear the results of the scans, but couldn't care less, and find a quiet hallway to make up (and make out a doy hoy hoy ahem) for their previous disagreements. Their mission is almost at an end, and after that they won't be risking their lives for some trinket a man they haven't met wants.>>22951150>>22951156>>22951195>>22951201Hadrak awakens, and gets himself into operating position. He learned from that particular brawl, and works on giving himself an auto air supply, as well as adding extra parts to make sure that he can survive in the void just fine without assistance, if only for an hour. He then turns to Sebastiano. He locks the door to the medical bay, shooing out the orderlies, injects the poor bastard with anesthetic, just in case, and begins to cut.A few hours later, Sebastiano has a new left arm, and a new right leg. The leg has knives, built in holsters and ammo holding compartments, and extra power, and even looks organic to boot. The arm has both his handcannon and his autopistol built into it, so he can never lose them again, along with magazine and speed-loader slots to reload, small knives built into the fingernails and an impact hammer in the palm.It'll be a while before he wakes. Hadrak takes that time to review the scans of the planet below and plan out how to get down there.(Cont'd)
Rolled 13, 17 = 30>>22951222rolling for full blown funeral service
>>22951228>>22951166>>22951181Ellyn wants to spend some more time with Berold, saying "Hey you blind ogryn, you didn't land ANY shots out there. You're paying this time round" with a smile. Berold doesn't pay attention. Berold is scared. He's scared of the huge cyborg who they killed. He's scared that they never truly checked if he was dead. He's scared that there's more of them that are coming for the acolytes. He's scared that this is what his life is going to become. Before he wasn't scared. But now he has to protect someone who isn't himself. And that's terrifying. Eventually she gets him to snap out of it, and they go to dinner, nicely dressed once more. Their conversation doesn't take long to turn from playful and flirty to cold and planning, as they begin to think about getting planetside to Karras. Ellyn goes back to her bunk to change into something more practical, as Berold goes back to his. Not exactly the best date she's been on, but he's been through a lot, she rationalizes.>>22951222>>22951235The sergeant of the elites requests that Hadrak set aside some time for a funeral service, for those who died protecting the acolytes. Hadrak responds:"No. Illogical. Soldiers died protecting acolytes. Acolytes will give lives delivering package. Package is first priority. Cannot waste time. We shall not attend."The sergeant looks unhappy by this, but accepts without complaint. The soldiers are interred in metal coffins, and the only ones who show up to the funeral are their squadmates. At least someone was thoughtful enough to provide photos, flowers and carpeting. They'll be buried the next time the ship reaches safe haven.
Rolled 8, 5 = 13>>22951254>"No. Illogical. Soldiers died protecting acolytes. Acolytes will give lives delivering package. Package is first priority. Cannot waste time. We shall not attend."Rolling for the other five to overrule him.

Rolled 7, 20, 16, 14 = 57>>22951267>>22951279rolling for both of these
>>22951267The other one there is Berold (well, Sebastiano is still unconcious and recovering at the time). He sees why the Sergeant is upset about this, but realizes that Hadrak does make a decent point, so says he shall not attend, against his feelings. Nora is later told about this by Berold, but says that he was right, and they do have a job to finish before they can do anything else, including mourn.>>22951279Despite the fact that it's quite possible those soldiers saved his and Sebastiano's life, Hadrak doesn't mention them, or even think of them again. Mere numbers in his head, a few more lives lost among the billions that vanish into the nether every day.>>22951293The others, however, feel differently. Ellyn and Kirstin are furious with Berold and Nora respectively for skipping out on the dead, and show up to the funeral alongside the squad to pay their respects. And in everyone's mind except Hadraks, the losses suffered are remembered.24 hours after entering realspace, thanks to the technology and first aid available, Sebastiano is back on his feet (recovering to the shock at his swapped limbs quite quickly, although not happy with Hadrak for it), and Hadrak gathers them all up in the medbay to discuss how they plan on reaching Karras down below, in what appears to be a warzone.
Rolled 7, 14, 19, 9 = 49>>22951329Hadrak works on the scanners to see if he can supercharge them and pick out anything helpful on the planet below

Rolled 7, 14 = 21>>22951398apparently notrolling for Karras to contact them with directions
>>22951372Hadrak heads up to the bridge, and tries to overclock the scanners. It works, to an extent. He can see the focal points of attacks, and he catches a glimpse of a few of the larger explosions. They're big, fiery, obnoxious, and often unintentional. Tides of green wash across the landscape. Orks are here, and something down there is fighting back. For what it's worth, anti-air emplacements around the last-known position of Karras are pretty much non-existent, as far as he can tell.>>22951376Unfortunately, as mentioned, the signal is jammed, and no matter how hard he tries to connect, he can't get a clear signal. Perhaps only orbital communications are plugged up, but maybe it's on ground too. It is unknown if the imperials down there are blocking everything up out of fear, or the Orks are purposely trying to stop them.>>22951392Everyone checks their gear and prepares to find a landing craft and head down. Sebastiano calibrates his new limbs, and admits that they're "Not so bad". Hadrak seems pleased about this as the board the lander.>>22951398>>22951407>It's jammed, but they know anywayThey know the bunker/fortress where Karras was supposed to be, but not much aside from that. He plays things close to the chest, Karras, and doesn't keep in personal contact with the majority of his (huge) network of acolytes.
Rolled 15, 5 = 20rolling for safe landing
Rolled 13, 20 = 33>>22951430rolling for whoever was going to drive not driving and another more fortunate pilot to land us
>>22951430>>22951446Hadrak gets into the pilot seat of the lander, the crew wishing them best of luck. Ellyn follows along, and Hadrak is about to question it when Kirstin quickly stomps on his foot and hisses into his ear not to ask questions. The rest of them accept her presence, and they all buckle down into the lander.There weren't any anti-air emplacements, but there *were* fighta bomba squadrons. In a run of bad luck, one of them spots the lander, and opens fire. Traditional Ork marksmanship almost saves them, but a missile hits and the lander takes a nosedive. Luckily, Hadrak is a better pilot than it would seem, and manages to expertly land on three points in a small clearing in a dense jungle. They're off target, by about 80 kilometres, but at least once they patch the lander up they have a ride out of here. They don't know if their position is known yet, but they can't hear or see if there's orks in the area, and orks are typically pretty loud.(Stepping away, 15-30 minutes)
Rolled 12, 9 = 21Right, Hadrak and Seb in the front, Nora and Kirstin in the rear. The two snipers in the middle. Rolling for a quiet stroll through the jungle

>>22951505its 80 fucking kilometres, stroll to where? and why bring the only guy who can competently repair the lander, which NEEDS repairs...
>>22951532Hadrak gets to work on repairing the lander as night begins to fall, while everyone else stays alert for orks. Ellyn fits a silencer onto the end of her rifle, while Berold spots for her the best he can. At one point a patrol (more like a wandering mob) of the greenskins passes by only a hundred metres away, and everyone goes quiet, but they eventually leave without noticing them. A few hours later Hadrak's patched up the vital systems hit by the missile and refitted the covering. The lander can now fly. He thinks.
Rolled 15, 9, 10, 18 = 52>>22951598fly it to the fortsending out vox transmitions on all bands claiming to be friendly
Rolled 8, 10, 18, 15 = 51>>22951598get everyone back in and take offtry to fly the last 80km to karras without drawing attention (flying sneakily?)
>>22951617>>22951626The lander gets off the ground, shakily, and begins to fly. It's about 4AM, and the sky is pitch black. Another squadron of fighta bombas fires, but they're not as well armed, and while a few bullets make contact, no real damage is sustained. While they do this, Kirstin gets on the vox and begins to transmit across all channels, saying that she's a guardsman who needs to get to a bunker (it's true, technically). Eventually, someone picks up; it's a voxman from the bunker where Karras is! She explains the mission they have, and after confirming that an Inquisitor Karras is indeed there, he reads out coordinates to her, warning her to stay off the vox for fear of Orks intercepting communications, and says that they'll open up the bay doors for her once she arrives, but no sooner, for fear of attack.A few minutes later they arrive, and as promised the doors, in the ground and concealed by layers of dirt and even plantlife, slide open. They barely clear the entrance when they slam shut again, and Hadrak lands in the bay. A man in power armour (not a space marine), flanked by two more with carapace armour, and all with large, fancy looking rifles are waiting as the acolytes disembark. He explains that he is not Karras, but an acolyte; the Inquisitor himself prefers not to see those who aren't in his inner circle, so communicates via proxy.
>>22949900am I the only one that sees the icthyosaur next to that guardsman?

Rolled 15, 2 = 17>>22951695Kirstin explains it in a more reasonable tone.
Rolled 7, 14 = 21>>22951720Hadrak explains in a more logical manner
>>22951666You mean this? also nice devil trips
>>22951695Sebastiano steps forward, and before one of the more rational acolytes can stop him, says"Oi we've 'ad a long, ardo... ard... ardou... 'ard trip to get here, and lots of folk seem t' want this 'ere trinket. Lots 'a folk who shouldn't 'ave it, so yer'll forgive us for being a mite suspicious, wankerf. We want confirmation that yer who yer say yer are."The man is insulted by this. Quite insulted. >>22951720>>22951739Kirstin is about to say something, but Hadrak rocks up and pulls Sebastiano back. "High risk of mistake. Inquisitor wanted item personally. Need confirmation from Karras. Unnecessary risk must not be taken."That seems to do it, and the acolyte grudgingly says something into his vox, before handing over the earpiece to Hadrak. Sure enough, the man on the other end is Inquisitor Karras, his voice recognizable from the old recordings given as part of briefings. "Satisfied now, fellow acolytes?"
Rolled 6, 12 = 18>>22951770Hadrak talks to the man, making sure to say something unexpected to confirm that it isn't just a recording.Incidentally, what has past protocol with Karras been like?
Rolled 2, 13, 4, 20 = 39>>22951770absolutely, take the fucking boxalso, ask for new orders/payment/R&R/etc
Rolled 12, 10 = 22>>22951770Hadrak requests information pertaining to the ork conflict.
>>22951806haha, imagine if we got a 20 on handing the box over, do it so majestically and eloquently that the other acolyte explodes of sheer joy at receiving the box
Rolled 14, 7 = 21>>22951770Ask if it's a good idea to hand over the box right here right now when we're surrounded by Orks.
>>22951799Party wouldn't know, this was their first job under him. Previously he's been distant, his briefings done via recording or text-slate, and they've been told that in general he doesn't meet his acolytes in person. Why, no one really knows. He meets a few of the more elite ones, or ones who have particular merit or performances though.Hadrak realizes the possibility of this being a false recording, and loudly breaks into a coughing fit. Karras pauses his monologue to ask why he just coughed. Hadrak dismisses it, hands the vox back, and says that yes, he is satisfied.>>22951806Nora's been holding onto the box, fully welded shut by Hadrak, and gives it over. The acolyte thanks them. "What about our payment, and next orders?" asks Kirstin."Karras doesn't have anything readied for you yet. How did you arrive? You can leave the same way, presumably. You're sleeper agents, for the moment, until something else comes along. Settle down somewhere for a few weeks, travel the galaxy, it does not matter to me or the Inquisitor. As for payment, the guards will get you that. It'll be enough to survive for a fair while, but if you end up sleeping for more than 2 months or so, you'll need to get yourself a job. Follow them, then you may leave.">>22951822>>22951854"Wait. What about the orks? Is there no risk?" says Hadrak"Do not fear for the Inquisitor; he is to be evacuated on the morrow, and we're well guarded in the meantime. These greenskins know nothing of strategy or concealment, and I look forward to the war we shall wage against them. If you truly wish to, you may stay, but I fail to see how it may make a difference, and you shall not be recompensed for it." With that, he leaves, and some guards bring over a chest, with a few hundred throne's worth for everyone. It's a bit less than it would have been if Nora and Ellyn hadn't joined, but it's still a decent amount, enough for a month or two.
inb4 pilotWe should ask if we can further warn Karras of certain things we noticed about the box on our way here. Y'know the one.Anyway, assuming no further complications, do we want to find a way to return the dozen soldiers to their ship? Or can we leave them here as reinforcements for Karras? Do we even want to?

He almost gets away with it too, but the guy notices his lack of sidearm. Hadrak gets punched in the face for his trouble, but the lead acolyte stops the guard before things go much further. Eventually he convinces the guy to give him the sidearm anyway, and the soldier walks off grumbling.
>>22951990>>22951933Hadrak recognizes an appropriate time to head back to the ship when he sees one, passes a warning to the acolyte about the dangers of what's in the box, then takes the lander back up and out. The ship's name is whatever /tg/ wants to call it.Once out in space, Hadrak continues to upgrade it while the others get some rest and relaxation.

Rolled 12, 5 = 17>>22952032also I think they should pick up some really heavy ordnance for the Lumbering Gunboat, preferably somthing bigger than the ship itself. Also maybe the forge world is in the same system as a paradise world?

Any ship in the Navy will do, but they do not wish to serve on this one anymore. He looks like he wants to force them to stay aboard, but Nora takes him aside and convinces him to get them back to where they came from.They pull out of orbit of the planet, in case an ork hulk comes around and attacks, and upon reaching a safe distance can relax once more. Berold and Ellyn go back to the range together, brushing up on their shooting. Nora and Kirstin plan out jumping routes with Hadrak, insisting on spending at least a week on that paradise planet. Sebastiano continues to hit on female crewmembers, succeeding a decent portion of the time.Somewhere down there, a group of ork kommandos find a hunk of metal and flesh, burnt up something terrible from atmospheric entry, barely living. They drag it back to camp and the warboss to see what he has to say about it. They leave it in a tent on the outskirts while they go to tell him what they found. When they bring the boss back, it's gone, not even leaving a trail of footprints to indicate where in the jungle it disappeared.

Rolled 18, 11, 11, 9, 18, 11, 1, 5, 18, 7, 19, 5 = 133>>22952129>a group of ork kommandos find a hunk of metal and flesh, burnt up something terrible from atmospheric entry, barely livingFUCK->When they bring the boss back, it's goneAlright, alright, it's not as bad as it could have been. STILL PANICKING, THOUGH.Anyway, rolling for upgrades all around, in alphabetical order of surname.
Rolled 16, 20 = 36>>22952141Kirstin and Nora find some alone time on the ship. Which they use for lots of sex, because damn have the rolls been against them having alone time so far.
>>22952129the guys deserve a break, so paradise planet first gets my vote, then after a couple of weeks go to the forge world and get The Lumbering Gunboat kitted out with much dakka
Rolled 14, 12 = 26>>22952177Rolling for Berold and Ellyn.
>>22952177Kirstin and Nora catch up, profusely apologizing for earlier problems, and sharing the last bottle of their fine wine, before heading up to the room that they now share. Fade to black.>>22952194Ellyn meanwhile invites Berold to her's after a day at the range. This time though, he doesn't end up leaving early in the night, and they come out the next morning holding hands and looking satisfied. Berold in particular looks happier than anyone's ever seen him before, and for the next few days they aren't seen anywhere without the other.>>22952174>11, 9, 11, 5, 7, 5>Abajian, Berruti, Ciarra, Fritzen, Hinfalliger, SchusterHadrak finishes his upgrade to make himself completely void-immune, with emergency heaters in case of cold temperature. Also, as an act of goodwill towards their newest member, he takes the old beat-up rifle of Ellyn's (without her knowing of course), gives it a few tweaks, fixes it up so it doesn't need duct tape anymore, and removes the scratches before putting it back. He doesn't say he did it. She knows it was probably him, but avoids giving him flak about missing the funeral of the soldiers after that.And that's it for today! Probably going to continue Thursday at 9AM GMT again. I know, it's a while, but I'm busy this week, sorry :/As always, pleasure writing for you, and see you next time!
>>22952246was fun OP, though considering we fought off chaos terminators, a -possibly greater- demon and fought in a void, i have concerns about the parties futures
