First of all I would like to say Happy Birthday to Luigi, who has been with us for almost all of our 93 sessions and did impressive job both in shaping this quest to become what it is and in writing and editing our glorious Chapter Wiki. Best of luck to you man, we hope you will be just as and even more awesome over the coming year as you have always been! For this reason we gather here tonight to celebrate your birthday and to play CMQ!Status report+Chapter strength: 685 brothersChapter realm: Varda, Tombstone, FolkvangrChapter wealth: 188 WealthDate: late 342.M41+++These are strange times for the Ghosts of Retribution - you have just finished probably the most controversial mission in your Chapter's history - Operation Unseen Blade. Your elite team broke into Inquisitorial Prison on the moon of Nobis and freed a former Grey Knight Deiron, who was being held there under charges of Diabolus Extremis - he was unwillingly turned into a Daemonhost, his sacred protective wards have been removed together with his flesh and he was remade anew into something dark and unholy. These deeds would earn you the mark of the traitor, if not for one circumstance - you were committing all of these sins because you believe they are the lesser evil. Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn has convinced you that this is the only way to find arch-heretic Quixos, who seems to have been plotting against the Imperium on a scale unseen in this part of galaxy before... And now the time has come for the final confrontation as you prepare to leave for Farness Beta, heretic's lair.+++Thought for the day: Trenches make more friends than parties.P.S. Luigi, don't forget to check the gifts!
First Gift, something to help with your plans for the Chapter.
...and a second one, just in case the dice gods are dicks again!
Happy birthday, Luigi! This quest wouldn't be the same without you, even if your dice are cursed!
>>32165492>Ten minutes later>Everything ded>Chapter master surrounded by enemies>Pregnant Adriel>Emprah disappoint>SEED uses Proteus to rape everything>Arcon comes back as leader of a black crusade and a million ships>Slaanesh seduces the Chapter Master by being the little girlOh, and, happy birthday.
>>32165666Stop player hatin'.
>>32165666I still thought it would have been hilarious if Adriel lost her memory and thought she was human.
>>32165666Somebody screenshot this, it's gonna happen
>>32165332Can we get the results of Proteus 34's research?Can we test Void Squad for aptitudes in technology ritual-whatever-you-wish-to-call-it, and Psykering?Can we receive the tomes from Eisenhorn on Daemonology and Psykering generally?
Resolving rolls from the last thread:+Luigi - 50 - Carousing = Eisenhorns amasec is quite strong, he adds some drug that partially turns off your anti-poison immunity and you actually get a little bit drunk, but nothing too embarrassing! +Anon - 96 - warp travel = Your journey to Farness Beta takes a little bit longer than expected, but nothing bad happens[inquisitorial shielding].>Lyk - 34 - Purity>Red - 81 - Purity>Anon - 93 - Knowledge+115 vs. 93 = Your thirst for knowledge wins your inner fight and you delve deeper into the forbidden arts of the Daemonology. You gain Common Lore(Daemonology) free of XP cost OR Sorcery(+0) skill free of XP cost. Also you may learn up to three True Names of the Greater Daemons. These names can be used to:1) summon/banish/control them2) barter with other daemons or sorcerers3) you can discard the True Names to get powerful effects associated with the daemon to whom the name belongs4) just knowing the names gives you passive bonuses to resistence and various skills and extra modifiers depending on the name you know.Types of Greater Daemons:+Lord of Change - allegiance to Tzeentch+Great Unclean One - allegiance to Nurgle+Keeper of Secrets - allegiance to Slaanesh+Bloodthirster - allegiance to Khorne+The Lidless Eye - allegiance to Zran+Eternal Rebel - allegiance to Malal+Master of Eternity - allegiance to Muranor+The Elder Thing - allegiance to Kryptor===Also, can I have someone confirm whom exactly do you take with you to Farness Beta?
>>32166165>3) you can discard the True Names to get powerful effects associated with the daemon to whom the name belongs>4) just knowing the names gives you passive bonuses to resistence and various skills and extra modifiers depending on the name you know.Can we see the effects of these two please?
>>32166165I believe the forces we are taking are the Shadow Guard, Chief Librarian Trainon and Chaplains Omniscio & Tempestos.Also Chapter Master equips Darrion's helmet.
>>32166165>>Lyk - 34 - Purity>>Red - 81 - Purity>>Anon - 93 - Knowledgehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oomCIXGzsR0
>>32166207Also an Apothecary, perhaps Neiton or Avicenor.
>>32166253Neiton is the field medic, he'll come in handiest. What about taking Geron for recon?
>>32166280I'm not sure if invisibility will help when surrounded by psykers. It would only serve to provide false reassurance.
>>32166321We'll probably face more than psykers, and he's good at many things that could potentially be useful, but that'd also mean leaving the Tenth a year at least without a captain.
>>32166321If Darrion's helm protects from psyker presence Geron could be invaluable.
>>32166397I'd prefer us to be wearing Darrion's helmet so we can engage Quixos without being mindraped.
>>32166417We could be a distraction for Geron to stab him through the throat.Villains do love talking and gloating don't they?
>>32166431>Villains do love talking and gloating don't they?Let's not count them acting like Bond villains when it's about the survival of the CM
>>32166462Arcon did.The sorcerer faggot did.The fucking Grey Knights did.
>>32166088>Can we test Void Squad for aptitudes in technology ritual-whatever-you-wish-to-call-it, and Psykering?This would require to show them to the rest of the Chapter - Klementhos alone cannot complete these tests, your Librarians will have to be present.>Can we get the results of Proteus 34's research?If you are speaking about Proteus 34's research into warp, he is mostly stuck due to the fact that the limited materials you supplied him with only detail the results of warp anomalies, which can be easily explained as being of physical nature. For him to make progress, he would need to get access to materials related to the nature of the warp and maybe given a body to perform experiments. However he is great at organising your archives so far.>Can we receive the tomes from Eisenhorn on Daemonology and Psykering generally?He doesn't mind you learning from them and he could even borrow them to you for some time, but these are extremely rare artifacts and they are not something what you could just simply copy.>If you will ever need knowledge held in these books, call me and I will answer, but as I am using them in my line of duty a lot more often than you would, or at least should, I believe that they will serve Imperium better in my hands. However I would encourage you to seek out tomes of your own, I could even give you contacts of our Inquisitorial Scriptorium at Nobis, with my recommendation and suitable monetary compensation, they will be willing to prepare you grimoires related to whatever it is you seek to study.>>32166188Naturally, that is not possible, until you learn the names, grimoires only mention "walking in the shadow of the daemons' power", from which you understand that part of his strengths will influence you. Like for example knowing the true name of Daemon of Khorne might give you battle bonuses, regeneration or similar traits associated with him.>>32166207Do you take tanks? What you tell your men about the mission?
>>32166165>+The Lidless Eye - allegiance to Zran>+Master of Eternity - allegiance to Muranor>+The Elder Thing - allegiance to KryptorWho?If we're going this far lets learn some Eldar bitches too
>>32166165>Eisenhorn, these grimoires mention names of Zran, Muranor and Kryptor. I have never heard of these warp gods before, what are they?
>>32166485>ignoring the obvious ruse of skargan to make us think thatStay vigilant
>>32166486Lets have a meeting with Adriel, explain where we're going and what we're going to be doing.And lets talk about Khaine, Isha and Eldrad, as well as Divination.
>>32166165>Also, there might be one more thing you best look at, Eisenhorn. Recently, I confronted a dark sorcerer by the name of Ashkenor and acquired a power sword from him, embedded in a golden statue. It seemed untainted, but could you perhaps see to it that it thoroughly tested? If such a powerful figure found it worthy enough to keep it around, it could potentially be very valuable against Quixos.
>>32166486>Do you take tanks? What you tell your men about the mission?That depends, are we expecting a long hike? If so we should take a Rhino, if we're dropping right into the enemy compound a vehicle only present a larger target for doombolts.>Brothers, fate and the Emperor has called upon us. On the distant world of Farness Beta, the arch-heretic Inquisitor Quixos has laid his devious plans. Inquisitor Eisenhorn has called upon the Chapter for assistance in eliminating this great threat, I I choose you, my loyal Shadow Guard, my wise Chief Librarian, my stalwart Chaplains and my life-saving Apothecary, to accompany me on this mission of great importance. Together we will will cut deep into the heart of this heresy and purge it!
>>32166672This also>>32166700Don't we have a dreadnought? What about Horim? We could take him.Also Skarg is there going to be any other Chapters helping with this?
>>32166797Horim is part of the Shadow Guard.
>>32166700>That depends, are we expecting a long hike?Inquire what the landscape of Farnese Beta is like, and what Eisenhorn is expecting. We'll adjust our loadout accordingly.
Rolled 30>>32166536>>32166559>Malal, Lord of Betrayal, Zran, Duke of Insanity, Muranor the Unspeakable and Kryptor the Sleepless Watcher are Lesser Chaos Gods, Chapter Master. They are less potent than the Great Four and cannot really throw their weight around in the Endless War, but they have their... Duties, so to say. Because of this, major Chaos Gods rarely fight them and usually if one of the Great Ones attempts to enslave the Lesser Chaos Gods, they unite to repel him or even call upon other Great Ones. I doubt this cosmology will serve you any practical use, but don't underestimate them - they are way more powerful even than the daemon princes and Chaos Primarchs.>>32166672>I would be glad to do that on our way to Farness Beta. [rolling for Eisenhorn]>>32166816>>32166700My bad, I forgot that Horim counts as part of the Shadow Guard, you don't have place for the tank if you have a dreadnought.>>32166817Farness Beta according to Inquisitorial database is a jungle world, possibly infested by Orks. This was never confirmed, because Explorator mission that collected data never even landed on the planet and it happened around mid M40, so I'd say information we have is seriously outdated.+++++Can we proceed to Farness Beta?
>>32167159>Can we proceed to Farness Beta?No.See:>>32166817 >>32166630 >>32166397As well as setting up who's in charge of the chapter while we're gone.
>>32167224Brethorius will be in charge.Also Eisenhorn confirmed he would prevent any Ursus meddling right?
>>32167247We also need to ask that anyone who saw our face in the Prison should be purged, and any camera footage purged as well.
>>32167267We asked him about security camera footage, he said it would be too suspicious asking about it now, he has to wait a bit.
>>32167224No. Let's not tell Adriel.
>>32167296Why not?Adriel has plenty of advise she can offer us, as well as teaching us the dangers of psykers well beyond what we've experienced.
>>32166165Does everyone agree with taking Common Lore(Daemonology)? We can buy Sorcery with xp, plus I think this'll be somewhat more useful against Quixos. For the names I suggest we take a Lord of Change, The Elder Thing and a Master of Eternity, they seem most in line with our divination and time mark.
>>32167324Exactly. Ask her for anything specific, any snippet of knowledge or object that might us help stand against the might of an Arch-heretic and some of the most powerful psykers in the galaxy. We can use all the help we can get now.
>>32167357I agree with that selection.
>>32167357And we should pass down any knowledge we can to Omniscio and Tempestos, aside from the true names that is. Also ask them if they have any relevant knowledge regarding demons or exorcism they could share.
I'd rather choose 3 names of the major gods since we're more likely to run into daemons affiliated with them.
>>32167539We need to know the benefits and clear details before we choose.
>>32167557>We need to know the benefits and clear details before we choose.But skargan doesn't want to tell us
>>32167652THEN WE MAKE HIM.
>>32166397As I understand you have voted not to take Geron. If you wish, I can add him to the last list of people who are going.>>32166630She seems to be worried about it.>I am starting to regain my senses, dear. And unfortunately, all of this makes me feel very uneasy, as if you would be going somewhere dangerous... I don't recall much about the Aenii or their summoning rites. But I hope that I will soon regain my past memories and powers. Yes, dearest one, I am leaving. I will seek out my brothers and sisters and seek to know the light of the Wuxide Craftworld once more. Don't ask me to stay, this is something I must do. Oh, and one last thing...Her eyes turn misty and she whispers:>Intentions are noble, but pave way for dark deeds, dead world can save the universe, but will doom the ones who live today, forsaken heart is the key...She falls to her knees, spent.>Whatever it is you heard, I hope it will save your life, Chapter Master.>>32167539>>32167557>>32167652>>32167498>>32167357Please agree on selection or vote and roll d100 with lowest being picked.+++So, you travel to Farness Betacaptcha: yahwe oferriv>shit is gonna get serious
>>32167756>Dear>Dearest oneJesus whatAnd we were supposed to let her go ages ago anyway.
>>32167791>Jesus whatWe showed her our strategical girth, it really wasn't a secret
>>32167756I vote Bloodthirster, Great Unclean One and Lord of Change.

>>32167756>We'll meet again. Thank you and goodbye.
>>32167756>Light of the Emperor guide you towards your kith, my Seer.
>>32167791You talking shit bout my waifu?
>>32167756Gently caress her cheek "Worry not Adriel, I shall live to play Regicide with you again, although I perhaps will not be as naked as the first time we had played.
>>32167912Why wouldn't he be naked?
>>32167981Why would he be clothed?
>>32168074That's exactly what I asked
>>32167756The specific orders to chapter leadership.To Laptus>As my Master of Sanctity do your best to contain the cults in my absence. To prepare for the event that Tempestos and Omniscio perish, start searching for suitable candidates for the position of Chaplain, and train them however you see fit.To Brethorius>My ever-faithful brother in blood and spirit, you shall head the Chapter in my absence. Should I not return in five years without further word, assume me and my retinue dead, and then the Chapter shall be your burden. Be ever wary of Ursus.
>>32167831>You come to know the name of Raz'gran, the Slayer of Fists, legendary Bloodthirster who fought beneath the walls of the Imperial Palace on Terra ten millenia ago. A name of strength and fury - you gain +1 xp point for every loyalist space marine you kill in close combat and all enemies in close combat get -5% to hit.>>32167833>>32167849>You learn the name Azathecar, Master of Eternity - he is the Keeper of Thousand Names is told to know the names of all the creatures of the warp. A very powerful name that grants you protection from other Daemons, whenever you are attacked by Daemon, if he rolls 7, you become immune to the attack or spell in question.>>32167838You learn the name of Cherubael, Keeper of Secrets and a Daemon Prince, who dominated the Feral World of Clanar for millenia, living off the torture of thousands of primitives who were willingly sacrificing themselves to him every day. He is currently bound in the flesh of former Grey Knight Deiron. This name allows you to command the Daemonhost and grants you +15 to any Seduction tests.+++The names you learn are almost physical in their effects, after you read them, it feels as if they weight you down a little bit. Their power is so strong, that you know that they will even affect the things around you... Please roll 3d3 for Corruption.+++As the powerful warp engines cease their tireless humming, "Graceful Guardian", Eisenhorn's custom frigate, arrives to the Farness system. Within minutes, your holoscreens are filled with intel images from the surface of the Farness Beta and you realise that something is horribly wrong... It is not a jungle planet, it is brown and ragged, it is barren like an old whore that was left alone and forgotten in the darkness of space... Eisenhorn's eyes narrow.>This was no natural disaster. Look at the scars on the tectonic plates, the damage can be seen from the orbit... I would give my right hand if that's not Quixos' work. I just wonder how did he do it...
Rolled 3, 1, 1 = 5>>32168493ROLLAN ROLLAN ROLLAN
>>32168493Did we manage to teach our Chaplains anything about Demonology?
>>32168493Can we forget those names and not get the corruption?
>>32168603>Can we forget those names and not get the corruption?>>32166165>3) you can discard the True Names to get powerful effects associated with the daemon to whom the name belongsMaybe

Rolled 1, 1, 2 = 4>>32168493>whenever you are attacked by Daemon, if he rolls 7, you become immune to the attack or spell in question.Every 7 on a 1d100?Or just 7?
>>32167912>Ofcourse, Chapter Master, I have already learned my lesson - regicide is a lot easier once all of the muscles are relaxed and no artificial materials constrain us. I will be sure to learn to new moves at the Wuxide to show you the next time we meet... My sisters are masters of this game!>>32168591Which Chaplains are travelling with you? You may spend 2 Chapter XP per each one of them to give them Common Lore(Daemonology).>>32168603Well, as the roll has already been made it's not really fair, but I think it would be reasonable for you to cleanse yourself of the names through meditation and self-flaggelation... However 1 Corruption point would still remain.+++Eisenhorn looks at you and smiles:>Here they are, our allies are arriving...Warp radars ring golden bells attached to them as a dozen ships transit from Immaterium into the real space. Communications cogitator humms into life and a face of an old, wise, long bearded Inquisitor appears:>Salve, Gregor. As promised, we came.Eisenhorn nods:>And it seems you brought the whole Imperial Navy with you. In other circumstances I wouldn't have had asked you for this, but as you know, it is of extreme importance for us to stop Quixos as soon as possible.>Indeed. I believe that he already knows that we are coming, my Navigator told me that there were attempts from this system to misdirect us. Your intel must have been correct, only psykers of the highest caliber could manage to even try misdirect a whole fleet... Come aboard now, we need to plan on how we are going to deal with Quixos!=Session Over=
>>32168916>Which Chaplains are travelling with you? You may spend 2 Chapter XP per each one of them to give them Common Lore(Daemonology).And Exorcism?
>>32168916>However 1 Corruption point would still remain.I DIDN'T KNOW IT WOULD GIB CORRUPTION!I didn't know....
>>32168960Chaplains already have exorcism skill. Each chapter xp used on them improves it by 10.
>>32168993Can Psykers learn it too?
>>32168941Do they just start exploding if they roll a 77?
>>32168969>Studying daemon related material>Not realizing it would lead to corruption.Luigi...
>>32169394I just want to be a good servant of the emperor....
