>>32111027Warp time travel fuckery. It's happened before,
You should probably just set a course immediately for Terra, if humanity exists there's a high chance they'll be there.
>>32111027It won't matter, you'll just electric boogaloo your way backwards through the warp in the end.
Someone didn't say their prayers before bedtime
>>32111050>>32111023>>32111052>>32111054But why were there Tau ships and Eldar ships?They'd look like they'd been there for thousands of years. And the Techpriest verified that the hulls of the Imperial ships had be in the solar winds for the timeframe he put down.What happened and why the is the Astronomicon gone out?
The Emperor woke up, and he was displeased.>Like a hurricane, a tsunami, or a Godzilla...
Rogue Trader: Voyager, here we come.
YOU ARE A ROGUE TRADER DAMNIT! DO WHAT YOU WERE MEANT TO DO! FUCK BITCHES MAKE MONEY!
The nids arrived in full force and ate everything.Your ship contains the last of humanity.>considering the average crew of a RT vessel you can probably restart the species with a stable breeding population if you find a hospitable planet.
>>32111118Change course, head to Terra. You need to see if Emps is still tickin. As for the debris, there was likely a large battle for macragge
>>32111118Easy answer is the Tyranids won. All signs line up.They ripped the planets and took all the biomass. They made it to the astronomicon and nommed it.That would be my first and only guess. All the races got together and tried to fight them, for once, and still failed. Because 40k is a silly setting that isn't prepared to jump that far forward.
I forgot to mention>Techpriest starts looking for celestial phenomenon>Everything different>Eye of Terror is gone>All the warp storms are gone>No radio signals or anything>Should still get some from just background noise>Dead quietIt's just empty and dead now.
>>32111152But anon, there are no more money or bitches
>>32111157>>considering the average crew of a RT vessel you can probably restart the species with a stable breeding population if you find a hospitable planet.If you guys are right and the Nids won, where would there be a hospitable planet?
>warp is completely calm>enter warp>go back in time>arrive exactly on time
>>32111209Then actually make money. And then use said money to fund machines to make bitches!
>>32111225It was an eddie in the warp that caused it.How can you go back in time if there is no eddie?
>>32111203you are still in the warp , possibly it's some (really strong) daemon fucking with you.make sure that gellar field is on at all times
>>32111219Well anon it's simple. You'll have to terraform one.Loot lifesupport tech from the shipwrecks.
>mfw I'll never have a group to play Rogue Trader with.
>>32111278>You'll only have /tg/ scraps that are probably bullshit
>>32111264We don't have nearly enough men or manpower to get that done.Macragge is wiped dead. There's absolutely nothing on the world but rock.
>>32111254You know, this guy brings up a very good point. Does your ship have weapons and troops? Just what exactly sort of resources do you have OP? What kind of ship?
>>32111308We were exploration vessel with some basic shit. Frigate. Nothing good or amazing.We were hoping to strike it big on one of the worlds so we got some mining equipment.
>>32111157>bringing women on a ship>everVoidborn pls
What should happen if an untouchable enters the warp?say into a demon world or a place where reality is torn?
>>32110981GODDAMMIT DEATH MEANS GREAT CHANGE
>>32111299Leave a single microbe with human DNA spliced into its junk DNA in a sea formed by steering ice comets into impacting a planet and let it reproduce and evolve.Be precursors to whatever species next inhabits the stars.Wait in coldsleep aboard your ship, when they advance enough to be worth it then you loot their money and bitches.
>>32111359In the Imperial Tarot, you asswit?
>>32111359I'd say changing from living to dead is a great change.
I'd say nids because of the planet, but I feel like there might be necrons in your future too
>>32111332>no captain's concubines or ship's whores at the very leastVoidborn pls
Cloning tech for vatborn?
>>32111359I know that feel man, way too damn well.But it's not a big surprise and somewhat understandable in this case that it would be interpreted as Rocks Fall Everybody Dies considering the size and mass of the Tyranid Hive Fleets.
>>32111359There has clearly been a pretty great change in the last few dozen millennia.
>>32111368DO IT OP!
>>32111359This doesn't qualify?
>>32111500What's so great about the nids eating everything?
>>32110981>Imperial Tarot still worksWhat are you worried about? Go back to rolling in your polished and meticulously cleaned lucre.
>>32111516You realize it's just a psyker uses the card to divine something right?The Emperor doesn't do it for him.
>>32111514Great as in scope
>>32111514There used to be non-Tyranid biomass in the galaxy, now there isn't. That change is pretty great in the sense of being "of an extent, amount, or intensity considerably above the normal or average."
>>32111635Hey fuck you.I'm at the end of humanity. I'm one of the last humans left.Also the richest one.
>>32110981Well, who'se not to say that while Terra and Maccrage are both dust, humanity and perhaps even the Imperium of Man still persists somewhere? This would be an easy way to remodel your 40kverse how you want it.
>>32111651You and HERESY need to get a room.A room filled withB.L.A.M.M.I.N.G.
>>32111683If anything's left, it's orks. Orks and nids in a huge ass battle that's still going.
>>32111759>That feel when the last ork might be on my shipGuys. Should I kill my Ork crewman?
>>32111341Probably nothing, even if the demons can't hurt him, he won't close any rift. Stab a wall of flesh, nothing, watch it wither. More demons appear elsewhere. Achieve nothing.
>>32111651Fourteen. Thousand. Years. For 14,000 years, Commissar Fuklaw waited. Waited past the death of his Emperor. Waited through the horrors of the warpspawn. Waited while the Great Devourer scourged the galaxy.Because he knew. He knew that one day, a single ship would survive. Those last few remnants of humanity, numbering only a few thousand. Those last few humans, shivering in the dark, alone in the void long past the loss of their Emperor. And Fuklaw knew that there would be one who would doubt. One last heretic at the end of all time. And for 14,000, he waited. Ready. Raging. Angry.
>>32111778I think we both know the answer to that.
Don't go back, OP. Maybe this universe is a more peaceful universe. A dead universe, filled with nothing but the husks of the old world. No great good, but no great evils, either. A place to start over.Focus on finding something to clone yourselves, or develop some new life. Find a world that isn't blasted. Start anew.The Age of Grimdarkness is over. Now all that's left is to try and build something new.
>>32110981OP you and your crew are the last living things in the galaxy.Nids won around end of M41 and packed up and left for the next galaxy.It's like an unpopulated supermarket, you can loot everything with no consequence.You got all the money, but not a bitch remains.[BAD END]
>>32111872or alternatively, fuck every female crew member like rabbits
>>32111872>>32111881It's funny because the techpriest is talking about building the new galaxy to the glory of the Omnissah. One where everyone is a cyborg and a new race of men run the place. Ones who are better than normal humans.
>>32111872>call the new world an old name for Holy Terra, Earth. Go native. Wait.Cue the real world happening.
>>32111913Kill him and make it look like an accident.This is a second chance for humanity. A bunch of cybermen/borg ripoffs running around could ruin it.
>>32111955That's fucking corny, and stupid, and exactly what 40k is not about, and you're missing the fucking point, and that's exactly what you should do.
>>32111967Exactly!Necron bitches still exist!
>>32111955And then John was Battlestar Galacticas>>32111913OP, you may want to think about BLAMing your Techpriest the fucking SECOND that you don't need him anymore.
>>32111988>OP, you may want to think about BLAMing your Techpriest the fucking SECOND that you don't need him anymore.I got a Dark Eldar on my pay roll for that my friend.
>>32112003You should kill him as well. This is a second chance for humanity. Emo space elves need not apply.
>>32112003Kill him too
>>32112003>Dark Eldar in an empty universeOP, you're just ASKING to be a major sacrifice to Slaanesh as the last souls ever to exist.
>>32112026I'm not killing the most loyal member of my crew.Also don't think I could if I tried.
>your entire crew is going down with more backstabbing than game of thrones
>>32112003Dude is free from slaanesh. Infinite respawing now, thanks to no demons.
>>32112074Congratulations. That just means he'll backstab you to restart the Eldar Empire rather than so he can sacrifice your soul in place of his own.
>>32112038Space the fucker. >>32112036Didn't you hear OP? There ARE no Warp Gods anymore, ergo, the Deldar shouldn't feel She Who Thirsts pulling on its rotten soul anymore. It should feel ecstasy like it's never known before.That's when you need to space the fucker anyway. You're the Captain of that ship. Act like it.
>>32112059Your DM won't even need any outside villains, just watch the last sapient life in the universe backstab itself into extinction.
>>32112094I don't think Spacing an Incubi would stop him.Or even slow him down. I'm almost positive I he would still be fine.
>>32112059>W40k in a nutshell.pic related
>>32112111Have you seen the first Alien movie?It worked in the first Alien movie.
>>32112142That's cause the Xenomorph didn't have a power sword.And needed to breath.
>>32110981Heres what you doStop by terraLoot what ever the fuckers left behindWarp to TrazynEither loot/trade with the bastardAvoid C'tan and party like a motherfucker
>>32111778Yes, make a new breed of Orks in your cargohold.
>>32112249After he spaces the Deldar, Ork, and Techpriest.
>>32111174Well, then it wouldn't be 40K, would it? Maybe a different game? 55K? There is 30K, after all. But, what would make you want to play 55K? In The Utter Darkness of the 56th Millennium, There is nothing. Sounds exciting!
>>32112327So I know next to nothing about 40k lore except for what I've read on /tg/... Is everything that happens supposed to take place in the year 40,000? Or does it take place over a series of years, it's just like saying "all that shit happened in the 2000's," meaning like a decade (or in this case a century possibly). If so, what year is the lore at currently?
>>32112387The Horus Heresy happened in 30k, and everything else happens over the next 10k years up to M41.A few novels mention things in M42, but we don't REALLY know what happens past like 9999.999999999999 M41.
>>32112387Its a mix of events from before and after 40,000Currently, if you scrounge every book and every fluff bit, you'll see that 40k has advanced to at least 42k
>>32112455I think Dark Heresy is in the middle of 39k, though.
>>32110981You really shouldn't be able to properly recognize Tau ships after a few thousand years.
>>32112528Not if the war happened relatively recently.
>>32111203Assuming that >>32111254 isn't right, you're in a dead galaxy.The warp is just a reflection of emotion and it'd explain the Astropath's death cards. The astronomicon being dead means Emps and his jolly band of ten thousand psykers a day isn't there, the warp is calm because there are no emotions to stir things up and daemons or the gods can't rile it up if they have nothing to feed on, so they disappear.The only people who'd be left are Necrons or Dark Eldar probably.
>>32112528Why would a Tau ship not be recognized?
>>32112623Because they develop inordinately quickly compared to other races. Theoretically, they'd be miles ahead of what they are currently if they would be allowed enough time.That said, >>32112608 justifies it if the battle took places reasonably close to the usual 40k timeline.
>>32112623It's like identifying a Modern Aircraft carrier from the United States, if you are from a pre-American Revolution era. Kinda hard to identify something when it's so far in advance of you.
>>32112656There's also still standard issue equipment and a technological development limit.Eventually progress slows down since you've got limits on what you can do like with humanity pre-DAoT.>>32112665Sure, except an Imperial ship is more advanced than a Tau one.
>>32112705>implying that mattersYou still aren't staring at a configuration that you recognize. Also, for all their 'being more advanced' they sure did get the shit kicked out of them by the Tau a lot. Especially considering the early Tau vessels were not amazingly heavily armed.
>>32112249Oh shit, this is actually a great idea for the finale of a campaig. Go to find Trazyn and try to get him to give up some of his stash so you can rebuild mankind (and elfkind if you want to).>>32112327>In The Utter Darkness of the 56th Millennium, There is nothing. Stolen
>>32112623I don't know if he's implying that the wrecks won't last long, or that Tau tech is advancing fast enough that their ships in a thousand years will look nothing like their ships now.
>>32112736>Also, for all their 'being more advanced' they sure did get the shit kicked out of them by the Tau a lotExcept they didn't. Damscles Crusade was an Imperial victory by a land slide. Hell even the Tau books state that. The Tau realized that if humanity wanted to fuck them over, it'd not be hard.>>32112736>You still aren't staring at a configuration that you recognizeAll technology a race uses is based on certain designs. Everything Eldar has runes and spirit stones. All Necron stuff glows green and is made of Necrodermis. All Tau shit looks advanced but barely works safely. All Imperial stuff is mass produced and has brain parts for circuits. Ork stuff is just broken shit that works. Dark Eldar shit is black and stabby. Chaos shit is angry/trying to rape you/ trying to kill you/trying to infect you and stabby. Once you know what their stuff looks like it's not hard to figure out.
>>32112656Tau use STL, or at least some tau do or did.By the time tau ascend to using bizarre quantum-dimensional sentient holo-riptides made of nothing but nanites and pure energy and save the galaxy or crushingly fail and get destroyed, you will still have unknown legions of STL tau troop transports bringing 'modern' tau to their destination, towards worlds long since consumed by chaos or devoured by the nids.
>>32111368Lol how fucking disapointing would it be if that turned out to be the basic story behind every precursor race ever. You make it to the home of your "gods" and they tell you "yeah actully we made you by mistake when we were messing around with a science experimet. we didn't have a clue what to do so just let you get on with it really. No, no there wasn't any plan..."
>>32111168Wouldn't the time it takes to travel from Macragge to Terra without Warp travel take millenia?
>>32112798>lost more and more ships in every encounter in space>on the ground they met no victory whatsoeverYeah, okay.And the designs won't ever change? Ever? Even after 10,000 years, the Tau Empire, the faction most known for advancing their tech, changing their designs, and doing whatever it takes (technically speaking) to win, isn't going to change their patterns?
>>32112038What the fuck sort pf crew do you have when the DE is the guy you trust the most!?
>>32112876They would still have the same iconography, the same transmissions, the same emblems. Air caste ain't gonna change their symbol
>>32112951Maybe, depends on if any revolution happened or not.
>>32112094>Didn't you hear OP? There ARE no Warp Gods anymore, ergo, the Deldar shouldn't feel She Who Thirsts pulling on its rotten soul anymore. It should feel ecstasy like it's never known before.The last time I felt this good I fucked a god of over the top excess into being! Pass the cocaine, I'm not partying hard enough!Let's get back together and do it again baby, only even better!
>>32112915Incubi are insanely loyal.There's no word to describe how loyal they are to their reagent.
>>32111414I figure Necrons are just as likely if not more so than nids considering the warp is pretty much silent.
>>32112802I'd like to see this aspect of 40k explored.You'd think that there would be thousands if not millions of ancient STL human ships still out there. Wasn't there a story where something like that happened and the =I= scooped them up?
>Thread is now on suptg.
>>32113090Who the fuck did that?I don't even think it was worth putting up, and I made the damn thing.
Seems as good a place as any to ask, so I'm playing a roll20 game of rogue trader and I want to make a new macro that has less of a weird curve, when not doing a macro i use 2d10 and just add the two numbers to take the ones and tens spot, but for macros that isn't really doable, is there anything else I could do? tried 1d10*1d10 but that ends up with a weird low curve
> Ork in the party> Dark Eldar in the party> Tyranidfag GM> Campaign has nothing to do with rogue traderingWow, all you need now is a secessionist captain and a fedora-wearing tech-priest and you'll have hit maximum shit. I'm happy your group has found each other.
>>32113126That's a lot of implying friend.You really need to stop making so many assumptions and learn to say more nice things.
>>32113103The roll20 dice suck noodle anyway. I have a game on Sundays and half our rolls come up 1.
>>32113149>ImplyingAlso turn on 3D dice. Roll20 has a super high chance in large dice pools to roll a 1 on a d10. 3D are physics driven so they don't have much of a chance and are changed based on your screen's FPS
>>32113085We've had Warp Travel since M18. They've probably all arrived barring catastrophic malfunction.
>>32110981Guessing Tyranids main force arrived, started nomming. Shadow In The Warp clamped down on EVERYTHING warp-related, beyond the wildest dreams of the Necrons. Warp flattened out, daemons dissolved, even the Chaos Gods ceased to be. There are gates into the webway that anyone can use. All the DE got nommed. Tau are biomass, nom. Orks, biomass, nom. Necrons may have retreated into Tomb Worlds again, if they were smart they'll have sent automated seedships out to do some geoforming while they sleep.
>>32113085>>32113189Its quite possible, including that all across the galaxy, planets have fallen into primitivism and slowly, torturously crawled back out.
>>32112870The Warp is calm. It should be the smoothest of spacing.
>>32112951Just like how we have the exact same iconography, the same transmissions, and the same emblems from 10,000 years ago?
>>32111778depends if you like orks or not as a whole. and if you truly think you have the right to decide whether or not to wipe out an entire race.with that one ork, an entire galaxy could be repopulated because they reproduce from spores that fall from their bodies. you could raise an empire of orks using all the wreckage, because with orks "stuf jus werks" or alternatively, that ork would become a god among his offspring and become the first ever warboss god, and he may or may not kill you and become the next rouge trader.
>>32113102Not sure who actually put it up but I think it's an awesome thread.
>>32113308>and if you truly think you have the right to decide whether or not to wipe out an entire race.Son, I am disappoint.
>>32113308>Do I have the right?
>>32110981i think your GM might be a huge faggot, this is the point where you call him a big bitch.
>>32111500>>32111393A better card to symbolize that would be the 10 of Swords, or even The Tower.
>>32113402>Are you kidding? This sounds like an awesome campaign idea to me.
>>32113271Oh yeahThe SoB icon os DEFINITELY not frenchThe Necron symbol? donnut steelEven the fucking aquila is just a stylized Russian Empire Symbol
>>32111359>GODDAMMIT DEATH MEANS GREAT CHANGETHEN WHY IS IT FUCKING CALLED DEATHWHY ISN'T IT A PICTURE OF A QUARTER TWO DIMES AND A NIGGER PRESIDENT
>>32113465Forgot my pick
>>32113477Because the imagery of the card is supposed to convey great magnitude and the rebirth of life after death as a metaphor for change of transition into a new state.Death standing over a dying king is supposed to convey the magnitude, while the white rose on his flag and the confused child beside him is supposed to represent a new beginning.Death was probably chosen for the king imagery alone.
>>32111359I imagine it also symbolizes death, as in "everything is dead"
>>32112705Tau design sensibilities shouldn't change that much. >Sir, those are definitely Tau ships but not any configuration I've ever seen.
>>32113571In the emperor's tarot, death means death. The squat means death. The hulk means death. The despoiler means death.
>>32113571And... guess what? Death is a change. Everyone else being dead is also potential for great rebirth.
>>32111359No fucking shit it does you sperg, the entire universe has changed, everything about it is different, the eye of terror is GONE the warp is STILL and the astronimicon is MISSING.
>>32113697man /tg/ seems to hate admitting it's wrong.just use the tower if you're that bent on having a major arcana. it also represents great change, but at least its connotation involves disaster, calamity, great ruin, and actual death.
>>32113809Keep in mind that different decks can and will have different art and thus different ways of vaguely interpreting what they mean. There is no "true" deck or interpretation of the cards. OP's Emperor's Tarot may very well illustrate 'Death' with the emperor's power-fisted hand exploding out of Horus' chest.
>>32113809>man /tg/ seems to hate admitting it's wrong.Man /tg/ seems to hate acknowledging there is more than one person in a thread.There's finally the chance for a happy, peaceful ending to the 40k saga (well, 56k saga). That's a pretty big change and new beginning.>disaster, calamity, great ruin, and actual death.The GREATEST ENEMY is no more, and probably tyranids are long gone as well.
>>32113871>There's finally the chance for a happy, peaceful ending to the 40k saga (well, 56k saga). That's a pretty big change and new beginning.What thread have you been reading? Everyone wants OP to kill the Xenos and the Techpriest and to create new life in the universe for plundering purposes.
>>32113809If you're reading the cards in certain interpretations, an inverted death card is actual death, straight-up (or down, as the case would be). Upright Death is change, and yes sperg, change can mean from living to dead or vis-versa, though such an interpretation is often avoided because of the stigma of the card. Then again, the tower can be death. The king of swords can be death if inverted. The wheel of fortune can be death. The hanged man can be death. The point of tarot is near anything can mean anything.
>>32113239> Navigating the Warp without the AstronomicanDoesn't work, bruv. Their best option is to grab an eldar ship and Tech Heresy their engines in.
>>32113933Also doesn't the warp not work for FTL when it's calm?
>>32111203Definitely Nids...Wonder if there are still Nercrons out there?
>>32113982You can go in, but you can only come out where you want because you're guided by the Light of the Astronomican.So basically, yeah. It'll work wonders. But you'll have no fucking idea where you'll end up.
>>32113997It's possible to navigate without the light of the Astronomicon. You just take preposterously absurd penalties. Just depends on how good your Navigator is and what bonuses the ship/charts are rocking.
>>32114039Oh, yeah. FFG revisionist crunch/fluff. Disregard my previous comments.
>>32114039if the warp is calm, it shouldn't be a problem
>>32114054The Tau seem to handle it just fine, even if they have to take shorter trips than everyone else.
>>32112036>No eye of terror>every living thing with a psychic presence diedThe Chaos gods are more likely in a coma from starvation. The Dark Eldar have nothing to worry about anymore.
>>32114086Unless it was added in 6th edition, the Tau don't have FTL at all.
>>32113997>>32113982>>32114054Actually, I believe that Warp is only dangerous and inaccurate because it's so turbulent/demon-infested; if it's totally calm, you won't even need a Navigator.
>>32114105That is pretty theoretical. Depends on the GM's headcanon. >>32114103Addendum: They make short jumps and such, but they are excruciatingly slow, so they wouldn't be able to get all the way across the Imperium with that sorta tech/method. Eldar is the way to go.
>>32110981Well looks like there is nothing else to do but repopulate the human race. Just me and you anon.
>>32114103They've always been able to take short jumps, but they managed to get to Cadia, so make of that what you will.
>>32114182Cadia, niggawhat?Source on that?
>Necrons most likely still alive.>Crew has humans>Crew has some formerly Dark Eldar>And a single Ork CrewmemberObviously it's your goal to repopulate the Galaxy.Death and Rebirth
>>32112026>world ends>captain kills his whole crew so the survivors will be pure enough.>grimdark wins after all
>Travel into the now-calm warp>Navigate to the domains of the four Chaos Gods>Krump any remaining signs of chaos>Become new warp gods
>>32114250First things first, kill off the nonhumans in your crew leaving you with only the Necrons to worry about.
>>32114256Such is life in the Warhammer galaxy.
>>32114273does warptravel even work at that point? wouldn't it be like trying to use a boat after removing all the water from the ocean?
>>32114105The warp is a sea at night. The astronomicon is a lighthouse.Even of you're sailing on glass, you still can't see shit.
>>32112327In the Utter Darkness of the 56th Millennium... life has returned.
>>32114222They'd managed to sneak in a force to allow them to study the Eye of Terror to figure out how the warp and more specifically warp travel works, during the Eye of Terror Campaign
>>32114350Still doesn't explain how they fucking got there in the first place, since they live in the Eastern Fringe and thus relatively close (in astronomical terms) to Macgragge.
>>32114311It's the sea at night with no currents to throw you off. Their biggest problem now is their star maps are wrong.
>>32114369Yeah, it's called 'they saw it and went there'. I don't have an explanation for this, that's just what we were told.
>>32114369...I blame the Ultrasmurfs.
>>32112327>In The Utter Darkness of the 56th Millennium, There is only the last remnants of Humanity stabbing each other in the backFixed that for you
>>32114431Dammit, forgot to remove the name.
>>32114389>>32114410... More to the point, since they have no background in the Warp, how did they even know shit was going down in the Eye of Terror?
>>32114457The Tau do have access to human, presumably one of them knew, or maybe they'd already sent it before everything started, after they figured out the humans use something similar, and they just lucked into a major incursion.
>>32114295a more accurate analogue would be attempting to use a sailboat if the wind and waves stopped occuring
>>32114105I was under the impression the warp only flipped causality the bird if it was turbulent. With it calm it's no longer possible to use it for FTL.
>>32110981Well its obvious OPYou are the last humans and eldar in the galaxy, so possibly in existence. Time to start 'ahem' repopulating. Breed the eldar into the human gene pool, distribute genetics to where it gets so diluted you will only ever get slightly longer lived humans. Keep the Orks contained to 20 or so orks, kill them if they gain any weaponry whatsoever but remember to keep them alive in case you need to jury rig something in a hurry, or use their resource squigs. Loot all remaining technology from ships and dead planets because the nids couldn't have eaten all of it by accident. Since the warp is gone now you can actually rebuild scientific progress without fear of corruption. Oh and yeah you are going to have to terraform a planet at some point. Good luck, it shouldn't be too hard with whats left over of the galactic tech scale. By the way, you don't have to breed the old fashioned way, you can stop by cammorgah and get their breeding vats.
>>32111027Warp time fuckery either shot you ahead or into an alternate timeline where most likey tyranids won or perhaps the eldar god of death finally woke up? It had to be something significant if the eldar would have thrown that much force at it, and for the tau to be so far into imperial space. Maccarage isn't to far from the tau comparatively if I remember right, but we are still talking about a massive tau fleet imbedded deep in imperial space. I would check the damage on the Xenos ships. Try and identify if they are destroyed by imperial weaponry or some other Xenos tech. If its the former the nids might not actually be involved. Nid ships are alive if I remember right so destroyed "vessels" would probably have been harvested for biomass which might explain why there are no signs of tyranid vessels, but their weapons should still leave some kind of trace on the imperial and Xenos ships they destroyed. Identifying exactly what destroyed those ships could go a long way in helping you start piecing things together.
>>32114684Calm warp was easier to navigate and use.
>>32111242Well obviously the only solution is to somehow rebirth one of the chaos gods in order to cause the warp to have enough chaos in it to send you back in time again.
>>32114710Pretty much this, also might have to watch for any other ships that might have gotten tossed out around this time.Only threats out there might be a few Ork Roks that got lost.
>>32114350>>32114389That was Medusa you doofus.They played in their little sandbox blissfully unaware while the big races did important things during eye of terror.
>>32114911Medusa is even further away from tau space than Cadia
>search thread>no Ordos Chronos found... if you truly are in the future, you aren't the only ones.
>>32115017I think they really only give a shit about the past, so unless the imperium is still around 15 thousand years later you probably wouldn't cross paths. They'd probably have to deal with that bullshit if they made it back and couldn't keep their mouths shut I guess
>>32111027you are not the only ship to be caught up in this space time fuckery is my Guess
>>32114710>By the way, you don't have to breed the old fashioned way, you can stop by cammorgah and get their breeding vats.No one has to know that. Ever.
>>32114829I feel like this is how the Chaos Gods keep themselves alive.They send humans past points where humans were killed so that the humans can remake them because humans are the biggest chaos worshippers and always do it.
>>32114995>Man who never played any worldwide campaign trying to dictate fluff to a man who didMedusa V you dildo. Located in the vicinity of Van Grothe's Rapidity.
>>32113866>Death' with the emperor's power-fisted hand exploding out of Horus' chest.THAT IS AWESOME
>>32113239>>32113933>>32114684Warp travel works by emotional tides throwing things around, even the "calm" areas that (were) easy to navigate had a current to them, it was just uniform and not prone to drastic unforseeable changein OPs situation, the Entire Galaxy has been BECALMEDthe only possible way to travel in that case is if being in the warp dislocates you from gravitational effects of the material universe, which means the moment they drop back in, the whole fucking galaxy zips on its vector without themeven worse, they're the last sentients left, the Dark Eldar is fucking radiating the last vestiges of Slaanesh's perversity, the faithful humans are the only things providing the last of the Starchild's gestalt purity and all other emotions are basically creating the ruinous powers all over again but with mostly human influences and a bit of Incubi depravity, but eldar feels a thousand times more powerfully than humans so it's likely that newSlaanesh and the eldar aspects of the other ruinous powers form a significant portion of these new daemons birthing in the warp around this lone ship
Why has no one suggested investigating the gigantic graveyard of ships for clues?
>>32115664I thought it was just that the warp largly only mirrors life, so the actual distance to planets in warpspace are significantly shorter. It would probably mean the same thing in terms of how useful warp travel would be in this case though.I doubt the rogue trader's crew would really be big enough to really awaken anything too horrible outside of a conveniently located plot beast however
>>32115664>the only possible way to travel in that case is if being in the warp dislocates you from gravitational effects of the material universe, which means the moment they drop back in, the whole fucking galaxy zips on its vector without themActually the Warp was calm back in the days of the Old Ones and that's how they traveled pre-Webway
>>32115918They might have engines more effective in the warp somehow?
>>32110981Have fun saying hello to Ordo Chronus.
>>32113668Has the complete Emperor's Tarot ever been set out anywhere?I think it would be cool as shit if someone did.
>>32113069if it were Crons the warp would be locked away.
>>32113465>>32113483>Even the fucking aquila is just a stylized Russian Empire Symbol>Russian>Not ByzantineDamn, even the file you've attached has "Holy Roman" in its name.
>>32118905With a dose of nazi.
>>32118905Still proves my point.
>>32114710>stop by cammorgahBad idea for obvious reasons. No, doesn't matter if everything there's been dead for millions of years, stay out anyway. That's the fucking DE home.Also, >>32115167
>>32115918There's a difference between calm and completely still.
>>32116102Lexicanum has a list of a few cards which I'm assuming are the major arcana along with the meanings of maybe three of them. Interestingly death isn't among them and the tower seems to have become the hulk.
OP has gone to a place where 40k no longer has meaning. It might as well be a magical realm now.
>>32113147I'm gonna have to go ahead and ask what nice things could possibly be said about Dark Eldar, pal.
>>32120814Saved my life multiple timesBest swordsman we have on the shipMost insane person we have on the shipFastest person on the shipSoloed an Ork Warboss with both hands tied behind his back because it would have been too easy other wiseHunts down and kills the ship's mutantsFather is an ArchonScared a Commissar by just looking at himHis warsuit is hella advanced because a Haemonculus upgraded itKilled several Demons by himself when out numbered
>>32120754Magical Realm = badThis = interesting

>>32123244That alone justifies spacing the spaceelf sue.
>>32123244How do you know it's a DMPC? It's as if you think players can't be that awesome.
>>32113126>No TauYou hate blueberries, fag?
>>32115247Tzintchi, is that you? How's Reigle and Asukhorne doing?
>>32111027>We're going to explore the planet next sessionInstead of salvaging the fuck out of all these xenotech wrecks? You don't deserve the title of rogue trader.
>>32111174It sounds much more like the Necrons won than tyrannids. Warp's calm and shit.
>>32110981This sort of thing actually nearly happened to a group I'm in. Dark Heresy, using Rogue Trader rules for travel. When we tried to escape from a Dark Eldar ship, the ship's Navigator rolled so fucking terribly that we nearly Hendersoned the entire game. We would have dropped out of the Warp in a different sector years in the future, branded as radicals for having gone missing for so long. The entire group burned fate to avoid it and get back on track..
>>32128945The Shadow in the Warp passing over the entire galaxy at the strength created by literally 'all' the nids combined with the extinction of all life would have similar calming effects on the Warp.
