Equipment checked, all ready to go, the squad moves out. You take a quick taste of the water on the beach only for you to find, to your disgust, that it's salt water. The only other bodies of water marked on the map are a few streams or rivers halfway into the forest. You have to tough it out for the time being until you find a smaller stream unmarked on the map. The weather isn't hot or dry, it's much nicer than the weather back home.Squad 7 moves in loose formation into the forest, all weapons slung, except for Ander, loaded autogun cradled in his arms. As you close up your bag and swing it onto your back, you can only think of one thing: the family blade is not in your possession.You march for a few hours, the others complaining the whole time about thirst, before finally stumbling upon a decently sized stream, two meters across and coming to halfway up your calf. It trickles along steadily on its rocky bed, the water clear and cold to the touch when you dip a hand in.The sun disappears behind a gloomily dark cloud, not yet three fourths of its way across the sky. Everyone fills up their flasks, and it's only your quick thinking that stops them from drinking immediately. You pop a little white pill from the bottle marked “Iodine” into each of the flasks and tell them to wait half an hour before drinking. Basic wilderness survival that you learned from Father back home. Never drink straight from a natural water source, no matter how clear, unless you don't mind getting sick. The squad grumbles a bit, but quiet down when you describe to them possible symptoms of whatever disease you might contract from unfiltered water.You get to Jakko last, and he's holding two flasks. Ander is gone.
You are Evangeline Salome Rosalina de Fuentes, nobility of Alamos Primus. Your father, an Imperial Guard commander, died in the line of duty. Your mother died giving birth to your fourth sibling and only brother. Newly orphaned, you are now a cadet at the Schola Progenium of Loyola Tertius. This is your first training exercise.>Character Sheet & Statshttp://pastebin.com/pRZUhxV2>Previous threads/Archivehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Schola+Progenium>System/Mechanicshttp://pastebin.com/9j0yNNFv>Experience PointsAttributes cost [current score x2] xp.

“Where is he? Jakko, where's Ander?”Jakko only grunts unintelligibly, shakes his head, and says, “Ander. Gone. Hear. Give water.” Another grunt. “Leaf.”Jakko's speech is puzzling, broken Low Gothic, thickly accented. You didn't notice at the beach or the first hours of march, but then he only said his name and was the only one who didn't complain of thirst.Before you try to ask again to get something of a better answer, Ander comes out of the trees further down the stream.Before you can ask where he was, he says, “There's another squad filling up, upstream. It might be squad 8, it might not, I can't tell for sure. But they've got horses.”Horses. The family kept a few, but you only rode a few times. A squad on horseback will definitely get back to the Schola quickly before the rest. Ander motions for everyone to follow him and you move upstream. Sure enough, there they are. Eight black beauties drinking from the stream, one for each cadet. Four cadets of the other squad attend to the horses, the others sitting and resting against trees.>Weapons free, knock out the resting cadets, ambush the cadets attending the horses.>Take the resting cadets hostage, demand they turn over the horses.>Confront them openly. We'll be taking those horses.>Move on and let them go.>Other(Votes will be counted 10 minutes after the first response/vote.)(IMPORTANT: The mechanics and dice have been changed again.

>DC = 20 – WS = 17>20, 6, 14Success!Moving away from the stream and the other squad so they can't hear you, you tell squad 7 your plan. You speak in Low Gothic for the benefit of Jakko, and he nods periodically. Everyone draws their weapon slowly, and Ander sticks with his autogun. He seems...very confident with it. Sabbatine draws her knife, but you don't know if that will really help. She sticks to the back of the group.The other squad is still watering the horses and resting. You chop your hand forward in signal to engage. You know this from seeing Father's regiment drill several times. Apparently you did it right and they understood, as you put the hand over a cadet's mouth and drag him backward. His eyes bulge as he wakes from his nap. A quick blow to the back of the ear with the pommel of your gladius serves to knock him back out cold. You glance over and see another three unconscious cadets. You notice that the uniform of yours says: JERALD, EDNIL Z8.The cadets watering the horses seem to have not noticed. The boys move up to take them on, you and the other three girls having been the ones to knock out the resting ones. The other squad doesn't know what hit them. You swear you see Bartamaeus' face light up with glee, but it's gone after a moment. The horses don't even notice a thing the whole time, just drinking up.>What do you do now?
>>32235006 Loot the other kids for anything useful. Mount up.
>>32235006seconding >>32235038but leave them a canteen of water or two if we can spare them
I know it wasn't originally in the supplies, but I'll just say here that every squad has an emergency flare gun just in case.
Looting and mounting up. Writing.
>>32235112ah, so we don't have to worry about leaving them to die, good
>>32235112Excellent, no worries then.
This looks promising, OP. I hope you don't mind if I participate?(Catching up on the archive now)
>>32235374Welcome, your participation is very much welcomed and appreciated! Don't worry, we'll be having an extra long thread today, so I don't think you'll miss out if you're slow in reading the archives.
Everyone sheathes their weapons, except for Ander. He still keeps holding on to his autogun.“Check them for anything useful,” you say.Rena purses her lips and replies, “Is that really necessary? Do we really need to? They need the supplies as well to get back.” The look in Sabbatine's eyes seems to show that she shares the same sentiment. Alizabeth is silent and blank-faced as usual. The boys seem neutral about it but don't make a move yet.“We can leave them with food and water and whatnot, the essentials. And if they have anything we don't, we're taking it. Besides, I bet they have a flare gun just like we do, though my bet is that use of it is automatic menial work,” you say.The two girls give a resigned look and everyone starts to go through the bags of the other squad. In the end, you relieve them of the following: four flasks, two autogun magazines, and their rope. You're merciful in leaving them the rest. You won't leave them to die, at least this time. You imagine this isn't the last survival exercise.The horses aren't as big as the ones on the family estate, but they aren't the size of the ponies that you saw once at the street fair in the nearby city on Alamos. Your back thanks you heartily as you pack up all the gear into the saddlebags of the horses. As you mount up, you wonder why you were issued with autoguns. The rest of the weapons make some sense for a survival exercise, but firearms really only serve one purpose, and you don't think the abbots would be happy if you had slit the throats of the other cadet squad. You remember the “surprises” the abbot mentioned in the aircraft, but besides the horses, nothing else has shown up in the day.
You ponder over the thought as you mount up, but eventually you stop thinking about it as thinking to ride properly and minimizing later pain in your legs and bottom dominate the forefront of your mind. It's been a while. Everyone else seems to be as accustomed to riding as you are, and Jakko almost falls out of the saddle.The eight of you ride until sunset, 20:00 on your chronographs. You show the others how to build camp and soon you're set up. The tents are pitched, and the hatchets are put to use for wood to burn. You figure out that the white packets are slab mix, similar to the protein drink you had...yesterday morning. It's not the best meal, but it's the only thing. You could try to forage later, since you're not especially pressed for time with the horses.The fire isn't really needed, but the night gets quite cold according to the others. It's decided that it's prudent that you set up a watch, switching every hour and fifteen minutes, the sentry warmed by the fire while everyone else is snuggled up in blankets inside the tents. The girls in one tent and the boys in the other, of course. An autogun is left with the sentry along with one of the melee weapons.>Which watch rotation do you take?
>>32235614First rotation. Got to set an example for our squad.
>>32235614>1st WatchLeady by example.
As an aside, sitting next to the fire would seriously hinder our night vision.I don't know how 'innawoods' our little noble has ever been in her life, but I'd say we keep warm by walking around or at least getting up every 10 minutes or so to swap positions. Doing so would bugger up a stalkers planned line of approach.

He's easily the most intelligent in the group, I'm not sure if you could tell yet.>>32235734The eight of you are twelve years old at most, have been marching and riding all day, and will wake up at dawn, 6:00.

Seeing as you've been taking a leadership role so far, you see no reason to stop. You'll lead by example and take the first watch.Ander stays up for a little bit longer, whittling at branches and messing with the fire. He builds a contraption over the fire. It will keep you warm but preserve your night version he says with a smirk. Then he goes into the tent to sleep.Your rotation goes by without incident. You sleep for a bit afterwards, but wake up at about midnight. There is no moon out. You try to fall asleep again to no avail, so you go out of the tent, blanket wrapped around you, and talk to...>Who is on watch?>What would you like to talk about?Actually, the encounter will occur after the conversation, my bad. How long you talk depends on you guys.

Sabbatine is awake on watch duty, the fourth shift. She stares out into the dark, shifting her gaze every so often. Her autogun rests in the crook of her right arm barrel up, one of the spears buried in the ground next to her. A turned off flashlight in her left hand. One solid projectile magazine loaded and another on the floor. She's shorter than you already, and she looks more minute sitting on the grass in a temperate forest.You sit down next to her, and she almost starts. “Can't sleep?”, she asks. “I...know how that is. Quite well. We all do, I think.”“Things have been happening very fast, recently. Lots of knockouts,” you say.“It's a first for the rest of us, too.”“The rest of you... You guys have been together how long?”, you ask. You and Jakko are the only new arrivals within squad 7. You finger the patch on your jacket that says: DE FUENTES, EVANGELINE Z7.
She speaks hesitantly: “Six years ago, when we were six. The five of us were brought to the orphanage in Ignatius Magna. That's the city just across the sea. Rena was already there when we arrived. I say the five of us, but about a thousand and a half of us were borne on the Wind. Few of us old enough to be cadets back then though.” Again, she mentions this “Wind.”“A thousand and a half of you...from the same planet? Where were you born?”, you ask. You were, of course, familiar with the major planets in the sector.“Nereus Primaris,” she answers. You think back to your lessons. Hive world, relatively close to the sector capital. The Upside-down Megalopolis. You're awful with history though, and news doesn't travel too quickly to backwater systems like Alamos. But all cadets are orphans.You can tell you won't be able to get much more out of her at this point. You've only been acquainted for two days. Her cheery face from before looks so much more gloomy, and the occasional flicker of light from under the fire cover illuminates the bags under her eyes.You're about to start telling her about yourself to fill the silent void – barring the crackle of the fire – but you stop when you hear something. Branches breaking underfoot, something padded impacting the ground. A pair of slitted yellow eyes. A huff, a puff, a hiss-like growl. In the minimal light, the outline of a shape as tall as your shoulder. You slowly remove the fire cover. A juvenile grox.>What do you do?
>>32236570Don't waste ammo, that and the gunfire will bring unwanted attention down on us.Most animals, predator and prey, are adverse to fire. Grab a stick from the fire and ward it off if it approaches.Blast him if that doesn't work.
>>32236570seconding >>32236604while a young cow equivalent, I don't think we know how to butcher and prepare one for foodif we do though, we should make a effort to, it could keep us eating actual food for a week straight if we don't fuck up butchering it
>>32236570Yeah, trying to scare it off would be best. If the flames don't work, maybe fire into the air instead of at it before actually shooting at it. For all we know, injuring it might just make it go berserk.
>>32236655We have horses, anon. That's easily 60km a day if we push them a little. It's only 130km away and with 60ish kilometers behind us we can make it the next day if we ride hard.First team in out of the lot should look pretty snazzy on our first week.
Ho boy. Okay. Roll 2d20 for Willpower and secret. I don't know if I'll ever have grox again in the quest, but you guys might want to read this: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Grox#.U3s46tKSxIFSecond line of the second paragraph.

>>32236763>>32236744Probability wise canon-wise, no. Sororitas takes precedence for females AFAIK. But in this quest, you could go any way you want, though I'd really to prefer not to go Sororitas because I don't know much about them or have any idea how I'd write that. Despite it's extreme level of grimderp and many elements I dislike, I'll be going in accordance with the Militarum Tempestus codex in that the abbots mark you and they have an idea what your future will be. The last phase of your last year will truly lock it in with the Trials of Compliance leading up to Selection Day.Your path will be determined by your leanings in training and study, your defining actions and personality, the social links you maintain, and of course, the general leaning of the players.

Sabbatine is stock still, but her eyes dart between you and the grox. Gladius drawn, you put the end of the branch into the fire ever so slowly again, waiting for it to catch. The grox blinks once, twice. It hiss-growls again.You pull the branch out of the fire so-so-so slowly, the end caught. You rise to your feet, trying your very hardest not to move quickly. Drops of sweat roll down your face. They're not from the fire.Then you start waving the lit branch in front of the grox. Its eyes follow it, dilating.It pounces.You try to stab your sword into its head as it bears down on your, but you're knocked onto your back. Your head hits the ground. Four times now. You feel the heat of the fire very close to the left side of your face. Something burns. The smell of the grox's breath combined with whatever's burning is horrendous. It roars in your face. Sabbatine screams.A loud bang. Gunsmoke. Something warm, very warm, splashes on your face. The grox staggers off of you and topples over. You turn your head to see Ander with his autogun, a wrecked flash over the muzzle.“I swear by the Saint, it works every time in the picts,” he says. The wrecked flask is promptly discarded.Another bad smell. You get up finally, and Sabbatine is in fetal position on the ground. Poor girl pissed herself.The rest of the night is a blur.

I'm eating dinner, so I'll leave you guys to discuss a bit.Potential topics:Would you guys like to play out the rest of the exercise or skip to arriving at the Schola?How would you like to thank Ander?Obviously, playing out the rest of the week will mean more encounters and more rolling, but also more XP and more socialization/characterization.
Further topics for discussion:The PC is 12, and so, is coming into sexuality.WE DON'T HAVE THE FAMILY BLADEXP spending?

Thanks, I owe you one.">XPWeapon skill, straight up. I have a feeling Barty is going to be raring for a rematch, and so might the cadets of Team 8. Schola kids don't play nice, our family blade should be at hand at all times.Then agility/endurance like >>32237359 said.
>>32237422our WS is at 3, which would cost 6 to get it to 4, so we'd need to get extra XP besides the base 2 from each thread before we could level another attribute up
>>32237497Ah, I agree then.I'd say Agility, Endurance and Fellowship in that order.
>>32237537we could get WS up to 4 this thread if we get extra XP, but I think getting two of our rank 2 attributes up to rank 3 would be better, after all, the relevant attribute decreases the relevant DC
>>32237577I have to say it's an interesting take on the system (I like it).But the Blade of Succession should give us a hefty enough advantage with WS3 that we should do well enough in any case. Better to invest it in the areas we are lagging in for now.
>>32237615The system isn't all that different from Dark Heresy. It's separated Leadership into its own stat, reduced the die size from d100 to d20, and made it roll over instead of roll under. That said, it's interesting, and I wouldn't mind using something similar for a more rules light game, myself.
Guys, I'm starting to crash a bit, I didn't get much sleep last night. That said, I could take a shower, get some sugar in me and get 2-4 more updates out, but that would rule out another session tomorrow. What will it be?

>>32237819Rest up now and go for a full thread tomorrowAlso, out of curiosity, why did you separate Leadership and Fellowship?
>>32237819I'm about to crash too OP, but we've had a good run as far as these things go. Solid ETA for next time?
>>32237860The distinction is probably more important for Schola cadets than it would be for your average DH victim/player.
I guess I'll hit the sack soon then. If someone would kindly archive the thread.>>32237860To tell you honestly, I don't remember exactly, but it felt logical at the time. Leadership will be a measure of trust people have in you to make the right decisions and the ability to inspire them to do something. It's more of a group thing. Fellowship on the other hand, is more personal, social skills, getting people to like you and trying to persuade.If you guys would rather it put them back together as one stat, I would be amenable to that, and push the consolidated stat up to 4 as compensation.>>32237906Solid ETA would be tomorrow, May 21st, 0800 UTC.
>>32237933Wait, what the fuck time is it now? My clock is saying it is the 21st already, does 4chan time run on MST or UCT or what?
>>32237953GMT/UTC+10 here, half an hour until its the 21st, where are you in the world?
>>32237953It is currently 1327 UTC, May 20. 4chan time runs on EST.http://www.worldtimeserver.com/current_time_in_UTC.aspx
>>32237933No it makes sense, there's a definite difference between having people trust you to make the right decision and liking you/listening to what you say.Although, I'd suggest you grant us the choice to use Leadership or Fellowship to persuade someone where appropriate?
>>32237933I'm fine with the break between LD and Fel as long as it remains clear. I actually agree with you reasoning, I just wanted to make sure there WAS reasoning, you know?
>>32238004That would be acceptable.I'll be sticking around for the next two and a half hours if you guys have any questions for me.
>>32237973Australia, mate. Where the women glow and men chunder.
Would you guys like the scratches on your right arm from the grox to scar? The scars will probably stretch as you grow and train, though.
>>32238052nah, any scars we keep should be ones with a badass story behind them, ones worthy of keeping
>>32238057Dueling scars, ho!
>>32238052How does the wounds system work? Maybe scarring should have something to do with that.
>>32238013QLD/NT? no DST here
>>32238057I agree, then again it's not like we should really have a choice in whether a scar is permanent. And it'd be fun to bullshit like a bloody Catachan at a boozefest to others over how we got it.>"How'd you get that scar, ma'am?">"This one? Ah, now there's a tale...">*stare off wistfully into the distance*
>>32238116Coast off Qld, it's only just creeping into the 21st now.
>>32238092Uh, well. My plan really is to hand wave stuff. Light wounds are +1 to DC involving that limb, more serious wounds are +2 to DC. Loss of limb will get you pulled out of combat provided you're with others, dice gods willing. Then you'll get a new limb, snazziness depending on who you're goody-goody with.
>>32238134>Catachan Devil snuck into my tent, so I punched it's skull in, but it gave me a nice scratch before I killed itA Catachan Devil>That's rightIn your tent>MmhmYou're full of shit, Sergeant.>Fuck off Nieves, like you'd know a Catachan Devil if you saw one
>>32238161Then I guess I'd say serious wounds should have a chance to scar, but light wounds probably don't?Though I have plenty of scars that I don't know the story behind…
>>32237933>Solid ETA would be tomorrow, May 21st, 0800 UTC.should we keep the thread alive?
>>32238377Nah, it'll be a new session.
>>32238387well this thread might still be alive by then, its only got 145 posts in it
Oh, shit. Completely forgot.2 XP: Base1 XP: Knocked out Squad 8 and took their horses
>>32238828awesome, so that puts us up to 10xp, I say we level perception and endurance both up to 3, which leaves us with 2xp to spend later
>>32238877You can vote on it next session, I remembered too late and the other players are gone now.
>>32238959will do, I'll probably make it late to the thread, I'll be working tomorrow night but should be finished before the threads over
