[[ 1 OF 3 WON ]]>CURRENT LOCATION: SEGMENTUS OBSCURUS // UNKNOWN SECTOR // INSIDE AN SPACE HULK // UNKNOWN ROOM
Darkness…there is nothing but Darkness around you. You are now alone with your thoughts, you try to move or even look down to see if you are still attached to your body but no matter how hard you try you cannot. Your flesh and metal vessel has now abandoned you because you are dead.It is strange. You were promised an afterlife among the Omnissiah and the Emperor but all you encountered so far was mere nothingness. Was it because you were a traitor or maybe of that strange anomaly that plagued your mind?Stress started accumulating and started constraining and choking you. There wasn't anything else you could think of but your daughter Alaria, your closest friend Liwet and the other few people you had befriended so far like Karelia, Fire in the Skin and Juliannus.All around you strange forms of impossible colors started to form and started to advance in your direction like tendrils. You could sense they had hostile intentions. The more nervous and anxious you were the faster they advanced but no matter how hard you tried you couldn't move at all.Just as they were about to grab and rip you out to pieces you were pulled out by an unseen force and returned to the Material Plane.
>>41824853Suddenly you found yourself inside a tube that was filled with a transparent and viscous liquid that had strange traces of a whiteish sludge among it. Looking down you saw a great hole on your naked chest and how that same white substance was slowly covering it. It surely was a mix of artificial embryonic stem cells that were attaching to your own cells and helping the wound closing. There were some tubes connected to you, their purpose was unknown but they surely were checking your vital signs or were pumping something inside of your fleshcage.On the distance there was a shadowy figure, its image was distorted by the effect of the own liquid you were stored in. Moving around you saw a connection cable linked to your broken Vox Channel, you couldn’t talk yet but your mysterious savior had the detail of connecting you to a near microphone to let you talk.It seems that this mysterious stranger hasn’t noticed your presence yet. You might be able to act before he or she has the chance to react.>Try to discern where you are.>Try to focus on that shadowy figure and discover who it is.>The tube you are in is a container, not a machine, break it and liberate yourself.>Try to talk using the microphone as a proxy and ask the stranger what happened.>Examine yourself and your wound by poking your fingers inside.>Write in.
>>41824864>Try to discern where you are.>Try to focus on that shadowy figure and discover who it is.>Try to talk using the microphone as a proxy and ask the stranger what happened.
>>41824864>>Try to focus on that shadowy figure and discover who it is.
>>41824864>>Try to discern where you are.>>Try to focus on that shadowy figure and discover who it is.Then>>Try to talk using the microphone as a proxy and ask the stranger what happened.
>>41824864>Try to discern where you are.Looking around isn't an easy task. You are still somewhat dizzy from your sudden awakening and the density of the liquid distorts the objects, the further away they are the less you can see what they are.By judging only in the close area around you that you can truly see you theorize that it is possibly some medicae bay of highly technological level and possibly with organ and muscle cloning and life support possibilities. There is a great layer of dust above some panels that surround you, the dusty lint drowns their original colors and light-bulbs with a grey veil that makes it look almost monochromatic. This was an old yet working place, surely you didn't moved very far away from the original ship you were in. You might even still had some chance of returning to your old vehicle and reunite with your team...>Try to focus on that shadowy figure and discover who it is.Now that some time had passed and your mind was much more clearer you tried to focus on that distant figure and what it intended. It wasn't as bulky and hunched as the orks were so luckily for you, you could discard the greenskins as your mysterious helpers. The more the image became clearer and more details appeared the less you could believe it. In front of you and tinkering with some cogitators stood the Eldar Corsair you had raced with not long ago. You didn't knew what kind of obscure intentions could he have but the mere fact of watching some xenos use Imperial technology enraged you. A sensation that was surely fueled and empowered by traces of the Psyschollosus drug that you had ingested.
>>41825087>Try to talk using the microphone as a proxy and ask the stranger what happened."Move from that sacred Cogitator you Xenos Scab!"Your voice had some lag as it needed some time to travel from your body to the mic. It also sounded broken and way more mechanical than before."And to think that I pitied you..." The male Eldar turned around and walked towards your tube, his characteristics became as clear as water now. He was tall, at least a head taller than you and his pale face was covered in diminutive freckles that shined as if they were composed of diamond dust. His emerald and cold eyes were half hidden under a mane of jet black hair that while messy looked elegant and well groomed. "We both need the help of each other for our respective situations have reached a critical point in direness.">Let him continue speaking.>Cut him, and ask what happened.>Be sorry and ask him what kind of help does he need. There is no time to lose.>Write in.
>>41825101>>Let him continue speaking.But remember, The Emperor always said never to trust the Eldar, So make sure we get a chance to shoot him in the back eventually before he shoots us
>>41825101>>Let him continue speaking.Apologies combat drugs are impairing my ability to be cordial knife ears.
>>41825101>>Let him continue speaking.
>>41825101>Let him continue speaking.He dragged you to safety and had saved your life. You would let him talk...for now.`"Go on." You mechanically said."I am Esciallan of the Jasdevi Craftworld. My purpose among those death races is not to prove the superiority of my race over theirs, it is something that the Orks could never understand nor gets their attention. I have raced over and over and every time I had won I asked the Warboss to continue racing in a general direction of my choosing. That way I have been able to keep his Kroozer and the rest of his ships that follow behind far away from my Craftworld and thus I have ensued their safety."The Eldar turned his hand into a fist and in pure frustration punched the crystal that separated you from him."So far I have been overall victorious but lately I've been running out of luck. We aren't only in a chaos infested Space Hulk but also the closest the Warboss and his races have ever been of the secret coordinates my world stands at."He turned around as if the following words were shameful to pronounce."Humanity is one of the few races it might be possible to discuss with. Since you killed my gunner I've been alone, we both have been separated and we cannot survive on our own. Together we might have a chance. The enemy of our enemy is our friend..."With some light stride he dived into a dark corner and returned with his Jetbike."I know that you have some strong reason to be in there. You and the rest of your team are not tainted and there is surely someone among the higher ecchelons of your corrupt society forcing you all to be in there. During your delirium while you were bleeding yourself to death you mentioned some names...I also have friends and loved ones I want to return to.">"How did you save me?">"What kind of dangers lie ahead?">"Why should I help you?">"What happened with my original team?">"How did you end on this race?">"What do I have to do?">Write in
Hello? Where did everybody go?
>Write in>"thank you i have had dealings with your kind in the past."
>>41825452>>"How did you save me?">"What happened with my original team?">"How did you end on this race?"
>>41825452>Write inShyly you nodded and felt the thick liquid displacing as you did so."Thanks for saving my life. I have had dealings with your kind in the past.""And now you are somewhat part of us. Your stem cells could close your wound but not repair the shattered ribs. I had to remove them all and create substitutes made from Wraithbone. It won't give you any special skill or perk but you better be grateful, it did save your life." "H-how did you save me?""I was running away from some of the Warband's forces. I kept the bike floating behind an arch and I entered into some ventilation shafts. It was then when I saw you bleeding and the others fighting. I do not have any kind of remorse when it comes to killing human but I have seen what the Dark Prince can do to a soul and I didn't wanted you to suffer the same inferno. From the shaft I dropped a few Tears of Isha, a regenerative potion that is directly applied onto open wounds. It worked instantly and made you stop bleeding to some degree."He sat on the ground and looked upwards at your direction, focusing on the wound."It wouldn't have saved you, the few Tears that I had weren't enough for such a big hole.I risked myself and descended to catch you and drag you into safety. It was then when I found this area and managed to further nurse you to health. I am now trying to access to a map to know what route to take and return to the first positions but it is taking me some time, I also have trouble accessing the cameras."
>>41826000"How did you end on this race?""I took the path of the Outcast and decided to go on my own with a few Rangers I had befriended. We didn't completely abandon our Craftworld but we aren't as attached as other Aspect Warriors are. It was a hard and painful path that we needed to sacrifice for because the rest didn't believed that the races of Madloota posed a risk for their safety and the safety of my world.""What happened with my original team?"You will have to help me access to the video circuit so we can know what happened. I left that area with you and didn't looked back, their fate is unknown for me..."With the push of a button the tube was emptied and descended, liberating you and letting you move freely. Soon afterwards you were completely cleaned, dressed and once again equipped with your weapons. Taking the control of the cameras didn't took you a lot.>Roll a 1d100 to see how the driverless vehicle does. The higher the roll the better. Only the first 3 rolls will be taken into account.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>41826015
>>41826022Since this thread seems to be completely deserted feel free to roll two more times anon
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>41826015reporting in
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>41826015just got here, this time i'm usually at workand a new roll also
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>41826053None may abandon the emperors light.
I know that it's really early in the States but its the best I can do. Thanks for replying, I was about to end it for today.
None of the rolls are higher than 80 ( I know its a pretty high roll but the situation is very dangerous and risky )I need 4d100 to follow the next schematic:>First 2d100:(1d100+Speed bonus) – (1d100+Defense bonus)= Damage taken.>Third 1d100 is to see if our Missile bomb explodes in the crash. With a 60 or less it explodes.>The last dice is to see the damage of the bomb. ( 1d100+100 )
Rolled 84, 4, 76, 8 = 172 (4d100)>>41826317
Rolled 75, 8, 52, 61 = 196 (4d100)>>41826317FOR THE OMNISSIAH
Rolled 81, 4, 75, 76 = 236 (4d100)>>41826317
Rolled 63, 71, 47, 14 = 195 (4d100)The Emperor Protects
>>41826370>>41826335>>41826325we are shit at defence aparently
>>41826372hum, this is actually better, even with the bomb exploding, as long as nobady dies doing it
ALL THE OPTIONS LOSE!Our vehicle has the following stats:>11 speed 4 stability 17 attack -1 defense>58 HP Left.>>41826325>(84+11)-(4-1)= 95-3= 92 Points of damage.>58-92 = 0 HPOur vehicle is destroyed. But the bomb doesn't goes off. Nobody survives.>>41826335>(75+11)-(8-1)= 86-7= 79 Points of damage.>58-79= 0 HPOur vehicle is destroyed and the bomb explodes.>52+100= 152 Points of Damage. Spida-Mobeel and Rokkit Rumbla are caught in the explosion and die>>41826370Similar to >>41826325>>41826372>(63+11)-(71-1)= 73-70= 3 Points of damage>58-3= 55 HP LeftOur vehicle survives but the bomb explodes.>14+100= 114 Points of Damage.The three vehicles are caught in the explosion and die. Creating a massive crater.
>>41826514everyone dies either way aparently right?
>>41826538Yep, they were doomed from the start.
>>41826538might as go with 2, this way at least the other guys are dead too
Well, Been a good quest guys, Apparently the emperor did not like us consorting with xenos GG
>>41826563we are alive man, its our crew that kicked the bucket, we can win this race with the eldar or not either way the one that counts is the next one. Our main concern here is survival.
We all know who is really behind this...
>>41826630We're getting blammed, backstabbed or forced to leave the imperium after this. Because we openly worked with Eldar and the inquisitor is a dick.
>>41826657As long as we win we won't. remember. TOTAL pardon if we win. surviving or not.And fuck them too. I'm tired of Karelia's averbearing paranoid bullshit and the fact that she just ditched us adds to it as wellI just want to het Alaria and Liwet and cheese it.
>>41826699You actually believe him, cute. He's going to keep sending us on suicide missions until we die. We won't see liwet again, and Alaria has probably already been turned into a servitor at Karelia's command because we "tainted" her
>>41826735well,if that's true we will find out when we get back there and probably die trying to kill him. But I imagine that Heracor wouldn't give up.
>>41826773It's not about if he's giving up, it's about the fact we're screwed and our goals and loved ones are at best forever out of our reach.
>>41826015You accessed into a recording and played it. It showed the last moments you remembered. Looking at the date you noticed that it had been at least a couple of hours since it was recorded.It showed how after you went flying by and landed into the ground how the rest of the vehicles continued frenetically exchanging bullets and insults. It was during that short time that Esciallan found and took you.As it was driverless it took your trukk less than a minute to crash against the Spida-Mobeel, the Rokkit Rumbla as it was the biggest one saw this as a ramming intent and decided to join to prove that his Battlewagon was the biggest and baddest vehicle around. The violent crash toppled down both vehicles sending their gunners to the ground, they soon started to fight each other with exchanges of punches or using anything they had close as an improvised weapon. None of them was able to notice how the bomb you helped them create earlier had been activated after the crash.As soon as the Rokkit Rumbla drove to them with the intention of ramming and running over as many people as people the bomb exploded, this created a chain reaction that multiplied the power of the explosion a thousandfold as the engines and fuel deposits exploded too and later on the many rockets and flamers that the Rumbla carried.The explosion created a hole that reached several levels and while it isn't enough to cripple the Hulk it would be a great breach in their defenses. Since their position was pretty close to the exterior hulls once again they had breached with the exterior. The open void sucked the few souls that managed to survive to not be seen never again.For the next two hours the recording showed how the difference of pressure between the interior and the open void pulled things out until at the end an automated breaching protocol kicked in and closed enough doors to seal that particular part of the Hulk.
>>41826897"I'm sorry..." Said his voice from behind. You kept shut. You weren't so sorry, they were criminals like you and whatever they did was now pardoned, they were even lucky of having a quick death... After knowing that you simply showed him the maps you had already downloaded of the Frigate you two were at."This ferric monstruosity is made from several ships and who knows what else. Unless we find a clear path we will have to make several stops and download a new map each time we enter into a new ship. We are now each other's only chance. I need you as much as you need me." He said.Unlike the last time you would now be a gunner and not a driver. You could carry your assortment of weapons with you but you better choose which ones to focus on because switching while driving will be a near impossible task.>Plasma Cannon: It will pretty much destroy everything it touches 3d100 to use it. First 1d100 to see if it explodes and the last 2d100 to calculate the damage. Damage = ( 2d100 + 50 )>Plasma Rifle: Has a corrosive anti-armour effect.2d100 to use it. First 1d100 to see if it explodes and the last 1d100 to calculate the damage.Damage= ( 1d100+20 )>Phosphex pistol & Arc gun: Phospex fires a green blue flame that only void can extingish as moves into living targets. Arc gun shoots very powerful arcs of electricity. 2d100 to use it. First 1d100 for the phospex and the second 1d100 for the arc gun.>Chainsword and Flamer dendrites: With this loadout you would take a defensive stance instead of an offensive one and protect the Jetbike from melee attackers.1d100 to use it.
>>41826910>>Phosphex pistol & Arc gun: Phospex fires a green blue flame that only void can extingish as moves into living targets. Arc gun shoots very powerful arcs of electricity.
Only one vote in 16 minutes. Phospex and Arc gun is it. We full pistolero gunslinger now.
>>41827124Sorry ax but I'm at work so i miss votes
>>41827155It's ok I am not angry. I know most people are busy or at work now. I live under the GMT+1 Timezone and there is nothing I can do to fix it. It's 7pm here >:O
>>41826910You kept the two plasma weapons on your back. Shooting such delicate weapons on a quickly moving vehicle might make their delicate yet powerful machine spirits angry and if they sense that they are being shoot while on board a xenos vehicle they would surely unleash their rage in the form of a critical mass failure.Even if they were not the most powerful options you ended choosing the two pistols, they had a decent range and unlike the heavier weapons you would be able to quickly reload them.With them full of ammo and the rest of the weapons safely secured you seated onto the sleekly designed seat of the Jetbike. It was comfy...way too comfy. It felt odd after a few seconds."Are you ready?" He asked as he gave you your old armor's helmet and placed another driving helmet over his cranium."I have to. We don't have another option."After saying this he accelerated his vehicle and created a vector curve that slowly ascended until it steadily floated above the ground."Tell me which direction to take!"He said using a comm.>Tell him the quickest route.>Tell him the straightest route.>Tell him the safest route, one that takes longer but leads across tunnels and corridors instead of open spaces where you two could be ambushed.>Ask him if is armor is airtight and tell him to cross the Hulk from the outside, across open space.>Write in.
Very well. I might not have more time to rp today so unless I am lucky and get the chance to continue I will have to end it for today. As usual 30 minutes for questions and such!
>>41826657Hmm, maybe we can ask the Eldar if he can remove the collar, or at least diffuse the explossive. Baring that, ask if he knows who could.Not all Inquisitors are dickish, but quite a few of them are, and I think the guy that sent us here is that kind. The guy will likely pardon us as promised, but posthumously. Might as well seek some sort of assurance that we'll live.
>>41826699Meh. Karelia's not that bad, as far as Inquisitors go. And believe me I'm surprised at that given her paranoia.
>>41827311>>Ask him if is armor is airtight and tell him to cross the Hulk from the outside, across open space.>>41827342So how likely is it the inquisitor will screw us over and that Alaria is already dead or a servitor?
>>41827311>Ask him if is armor is airtight and tell him to cross the Hulk from the outside, across open space.And if the answer is no>Tell him the safest route, one that takes longer but leads across tunnels and corridors instead of open spaces where you two could be ambushed.
>>41827413>So how likely is it the inquisitor will screw us over and that Alaria is already dead or a servitor?Not very. Karelia might want to use Alaria as an exchange coin that she could use to blackmail Heracor if she needed. The other inquisitor is from the Ordos Xenos and way too obsessed with his project to care about it. He just wanted to use Heracor as another pawn for his Ork Psyker capture mission.
>>41827374>Hmm, maybe we can ask the Eldar if he can remove the collarHe couldn't download some maps or access to some cameras. He's not tech savvy when it comes to human stuff.
>>41827454>inquisitor>needing to blackmail anything less than a system governorDoes the Eldar expect us to stick with him next race? Will we get a new team?
>>41827478Ah. Alright.Better luck with a Mek,or ourselves.Maybe a psycher, but I don't think there's one around that's good enough and that always has the slight risk of daemons.Not good odds, all in all.
>>41827491The Inquisitor might have wanted us to stay with her because even if she is a psyker having a blank close is of a great help when it comes to dealing with certain stuff.>Does the Eldar expect us to stick with him next race? Nope. He will get more help the next time.>Will we get a new team?If we survive yes.
>>41827533If we manage to get a pardon, will we get our old position back? Also how will the rest of the mechanicus personnel react to us?
Here it is!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=NHQ57
>>41827558That was a short thread.
>>41827558Good night Axs, May your dreams be filled with the dying screams of the emperors enemy's.
I'm back and speaking from the phone. I'll be able to run in about 11 hours. Would you guys be awake by then?
>>41828832It pisses me off that I always inevitably miss these threads.
thanks for running, Ax!
