Post 1In the grim darkness of the 31st Millennium, iron gods walk among men.You are god-wielder. You are a proud scion of Legio Pugnatores, the sword of Forge World Yitorach.Your skin is adamantium: your blood, promethium. Your heart is a star's heart, roiling plasma roaring through your bones. You are armored by the Immaterium itself. You carry death in one fist and fire in the other.You are the Machine God's own wrath made manifest.You are a Princeps, pilot of a Titan. And today, you will fight the greatest battle of your life.------Dramatis Personae: http://pastebin.com/aAs3rCkaCombat Mechanics: http://pastebin.com/dc8KT8mbAhran Campaign, Operation Eagle's Landing briefing: http://pastebin.com/2x5VaZTkTwitter: https://twitter.com/TwiceBornQMArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=WH40k%20Titan%20Quest

>>31306632https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2jS4ZaVOWA&Two lines of Engines meeting in combat. The very earth shakes at the wrath of gods tearing each other apart with laser, with claw, with cannon."Enemy Engine, bearing oh-one-five!""Ahead, full!""Firing solution ready, Princeps!""Fire!"Tankred lashes out with bolter and turbolaser, dodging enemy fire and scoring clean hits on the Xeno-Engines. Over the chatter of vox you hear that one of the Annihilators, a Warhound, has already been grievously wounded.But the Imperial battle-plan is holding; a counter-charge against the enemy to confound them and break the momentum of their assault.Ahead of you, five Ork Engines lie ahead."All Engines," comes the voice of Lord Herax over the vox. "Be advised: Ork jet-pack infantry are aboard several of their Engines. Bewary of aerial assault. An Ork jump-assault is inaccurate, but even a handful climbing aboard your Engine can be fatal."Sure enough, your auspex detects Ork life-signs on the hulls of the three frontmost Engines. Plumes of fire roar off their backs as a pack of them jump towards the Contumax Belligator.>Choose a target>>G1>>G2>>G3>>S1>>S2>>Jet Infantry
>>31306715To be fair, this is also the second battle of your life.--Notes on the enemy:G2, G3 have Stormboys (jet infantry) aboard (G1 already launched its infantry payload)G1, G2 have a smattering of cannons and clawsG3 has cannons and an odd...device for its armaments. You recall from various briefings that this is a form of magnetic tractor beam, capable of picking up objects as large as tanks and flinging them about.S1 and S2 have cannons and claws.Feel free to ask any questions if you need clarification.

>>31307281Ah, yes, as a reminder:For combat rolls, please roll 1d20 for each weapon you are firing. For example, if you want Tankred to fire both the Vulcan and the Turbolaser, roll 2d20. The first roll result will be for the Turbolaser, the second will be for the Vulcan.If you also want to try re-raising Void Shields while also firing weapons, roll 3d20. The 1st and 2nd numbers will be the Turbolaser and Vulcan, respectively, while the 3rd result will be the Void Shields roll. If you're attempting to use the Pugio on top of all of this, then roll 4d20. The Pugio will be the 4th roll result.(I thought I had put this in the Combat Mechanics pastebin, but it seems I did not.

Rolled 13>>31307841Whoops, wrote the code in the wrong field...Writing and drawing...
>>31307243Your flesh-arm clenches as it spits a hail of death. Huge mass-reactive shells leap forth like a swarm of enraged insects, tearing apart Ork jet-infantry flying towards the Warbringer.Lord Herax thanks you for your assistance, but your mind, focused as it is on taming and leading the snarling, bucking spirit of Tankred, barely registers it. Another buck of your arm, and a red lance of light tears away at its shields."Auspex readings: enemy Engine's Power Fields are down!" says Cuugo.Then comes the returning fire.The oily, swirling surface of your Void Shields flicker as it absorbs incoming fire, sending shells and cannon-fire screaming into the Immaterium. You grunt as red welts of pain blossom across your torso and right shoulder."Shields holding," says Cuugo. "Acknowledged," you manage to say through the stinging pain. "Ahead and leaft, full stride.""Aye, Princeps. Auspex shows two more packs of jet-infantry have launched from the Xeno Engines." Indeed, you see through the Manifold that reckless Ork infantry were jetting their way through the air--one pack towards you, another towards the Clibanarius. >Tankred Status:>>6 SP>>9 HP>Choose a target>>G1>>G2>>G3>>S1>>S2>>Jet Infantry heading towards you>>Jet Infantry headings towards Clibanarius(Note on Jet Infantry: Stormboys, upon landing on an Engine's hull, will attempt to climb their way towards the cockpit and plant explosive charges, after which they will attempt to kill the crew. Getting rid of such boarders involves either lower Void Shields and letting friendly units shoot them off of you, have friendly units climb aboard themselves, or attempt to literally shake them off (requires a 1d20 roll).)

>>31308232Seconding again, I agree with your assessment. The east side of the field has the Gargants outnumbered.
>>31308091You eye the Manifold, and you grimace in response. The Burning Brand was getting slammed by munitions from three Ork Engines, and its Shields were dwindling, the oil-swirls on the Shield surface fading away. If Servatus is getting worried, he's certainly not voxing it. "Moderati Ossea, target the same Ork Engine, bolter on xenos coming towards us. Hexa's going to have to fend off the infantry herself.">Roll for weapons>If you'd like for Tankred to make any maneuvers before, during, or after firing, please say so now.

>>31308540>Stand and deliverAnother lance of light, and the Orkish abomination of a machine is cored. What passes for its reactor goes critical, detonating the entire Engine and raining flaming debris on the battlefield."Engine kill!" crows Cuugo. But your joy turns sour as the incoming jet infantry swerve through the air, somehow avoiding the majority of your shells. Most of them miss and crash into the earth, or smash into your armored skin and pulverize themselves. But a handful have managed to latch on."Pugnatores," you vox, "Be advised, Tankred has xeno-infantry boarders.""Confirmed, Tankred, Clibanarius is much the same," says Princeps Atarko.>Choose an action for Tankred:>>Ignore the boarders and fire on a target (choose targets)>>Shake Tankred and attempt to rid yourself of boarders (Roll 1d20.

>>31309229Is there any chance we could combine shaking the titan and movement/charge into melee?
>>31309541Certainly, though you will not be able to stab anything with the Pugio until next round.Which Engine will you charge?
>>31309576Voting ends, but I won't count >>31309541until anon confirms which target we charge.Writing...
>>31309576>>31309649There isn't a point to charging if we can't actually work a Pugio stab into it. I just thought the actual clash of melee combat would be helpful for ridding boarders.
>>31309737Wait, so you'd like Tankred to try and bodyslam one of the Gargants to try and shake the infantry off?. In that case, I'd say you'd have to roll 1d20 to try and minimize hull damage.
>>31309793yeah lets try to not do that and get in melee for the gargant, which undoubtedly has better close combat gear than us
>>31309229Alright, that looks like a negatory for the charging idea, and unfortunately we must move on...--------You can feel the Ork boarders on your skin, like ants crawling along your flesh. They seem to be crawling along your arms and shoulders to your head, their crude chopping blades trying to find purchase on your adamantium armor. "Pugnatores, this is Clibanarius. These ants are nothing to us, we will continue the battle.""Hexa, my good daughter, you must--""Negative, Lord, Clibanarius cannot retreat now.""Princeps," says Mistra, a hint of concern in her voice, "Despite what Princeps Atarko says, I recommend we withdraw and lower Shields. The Uthuans can shoot them off of us.""No, Moderati," you say. "I agree with Atarko. If we withdraw, we lose what little numerical advantage we have. We will execute Maneuver Sigma-Alpha-Tertius on my mark."Cuugo gives a nervous chuckle. "Hold on to your seats, then...""Princeps, I cannot--""Maneuver Sigma-Alpha Tertius--""Wait--!""Mark."It begins with a sway, with Tankred's wolf-head moving side to side. Then the arms follow, each pendulum-swing of your ironform flinging off abominable Xenos from your blessed hull, screaming as they are hurled away.>Roll 1d20 to see how successful the maneuver is. I will accept the best of the first 3 rolls.

>>31309923Rolling ends. Writing...
>>31309923Tankred continues shaking, swaying, flinging the unclean Xenos off its ironform. Cuugo seems to cackling, while Mistra sits rigid and stock still, hands in a vice-grip on her armrests. You yourself feel a little nauseous.Soon enough, it comes to a stop. "Princeps Nicator," you say, "Check the auspex for Xeno-life signs." Indeed, the sensatino of crawling ants is gone, and through the Manifold you can see the broken bodies of Orks scattering the ground."One moment, Princeps," says Cuugo in reply. A pause. "None detected, maneuver Sigma-Alpha-Tertius successful."Mistra's reply is breathless. "P-Princeps, weapon banks stand ready.">Choose a target:>>G1>>G3>>S1>>S2>Tankred Status:>6 SP>9 HP>>31310258to be fair, some of the most popular quests on tg are running right now

>>31310409This. Also, ask for status on Clibanarius.
>>31310677Gladius Fraglans was targeting S1 (the Stompa farthest away from you). "Darius!" Servatus' voice is tinged with strain. "I just need a few more moments to deal with the one in front, you go and support Atarko."You can tell from the Manifold, however, that the Burning Brand's shields are on the verge of failure.>>31310704"The little ants are getting closer to my head now.

How efective is the Mega Bolter against allied titans? Could you potentially scratch each other's backs?
Rolled 9, 1 = 10>>31311145I'm pretty sure we don't want to be doing that, its effective against enemy titans...
Your arm shakes as the Turbolaser's discharge shrieks out of its barrel. Tankred adds its own fury to the blow, and the result is a laser bolt larger than any you've seen from a Warhound. It lances through what passes for the Engine's ugly head, punching through armor as though it were air. Your Megabolter, such as it is, is but an afterthought.None of the Orks seem to be firing up on you; the two on the left are busy dancing with three other Pugnatores, while the smaller one in front of the Gladius is occupied with larger prey.>The following choices will occur between the current round and the next, for the sake of keeping track of things.>Attempt to restore shields?>>Y>>N>Have Clibanarius withdraw and have supporting assets attempt to get rid of boarders?>>Y (indicate which supporting asset)>>N (have Clibanarius just shake them off: if this is chosen, roll 1d20)>>N (have Clibanarius continue to engage)>Have supporting assets engage enemy?

The Megabolter is +1 against Titans (compared to +6 that Turbolasers get against Titans). Since you'd be using controlled bursts to clean infantry off the hull, I'd say you would instead be rolling a straight 1d20 for simplicity's sake.
>>31311278Doh, forgot to add the map.

>>31311353I believe so: since the game is divided into Movement, Shooting, and Assault (i.e. melee) phases, it is quite possible to shoot 1 target and charge another one.Of course, a lot of models don't carry weapons that let them shoot and then charge in the same round...
