You have to get inside the secretive Magi Coven to discover their secrets, to turn all the fragmented whispers into loud truths and finally giving all your life a meaning. Just after defeating and killing all your chrono-gladiator foes in the arena the Coven started to meditate if you were worthy of their inclusion, you were so close to your objective that you felt as if it were a solid object at the range of your grasping hands. Then the Nox Vox, a group of what seems to be heretic miners, used some drills to breach into the Academy where the Coven reunited and unloaded the fire of their crude slug weapons and powder charges to kill anybody who was in sight, their poorer technology made them into weak and poor enemies but the surprise of their attack and their sheer numbers were more than enough to deal a great toll. The Nox Vox were eventually were driven back into the hole they came by with the use of the Laser turrets, Gun-Servitors and the Magii’s own exotic weapons. You, along with a couple of Bolter Servitors and the two persons that you hate most were tasked with going after them and hunting them down. At first you declined, you weren’t part of their strange club and hence you didn’t have any real responsibilities with their own agenda. Thanks to that attitude and their desperate situation they left the rituals and ceremonies away and made you a member ipso-facto. Thanks to your old knowledge of Omega-Drilling driving you were able to take one of the Drills that the attacking group had left behind and followed them into the underground bowels were they came from. After descending your group and you reached a massive underground cavern that housed what appeared to be an abandoned Fabricatorium.
>>43964923Shortly after your arrival several torches started getting lit. On top on the Fabicatorium’s roof a young girl, no more than seventeen years old made her appearance, despise her looks and young age she seemed to be the leader of that group. You looked around and saw silhouettes with torches, equipment made from weaponized mining tools or scrap metal and countless of powder grenades and Molotov cocktails. "It is Death itself that has come in its stolen carriage and it is here and now to steal our lives too! Well Mr.Death, I am here to meetcha."Said the girl after an awkward silence formed, apparently she wanted to speak. Parley? Doubtful…They were afraid of you, they had personally called you Death more than once, maybe this wasn’t a simple terrorist attack but a failed assassination attempt at your persona. Could her attempt to dialogue be a trap? Very possibly but she hasn’t ordered her men to attack you yet. Even with their crude weapons their numbers might be high enough to actually destroy your stolen drill and you. You better be careful.“Stay there, I’ll go talk with her.”You whisper as you stand from the pilot’s seat and head backwards to the rear exit.“Woah what the fuck do you think you are doing you little brat?”“It’s simple. If she want’s to talk with me, I’ll comply and chat. If she wants to fight, I’ll comply and kill her…”After saying so you left the vehicle and got on top of it to become completely visible for her.> “Do what you have to say, but do it on private.” Fly towards her and demand a private meeting.> “Speak; tell me why have you attacked me and my Coven.” > “There isn’t much time left for you, be quick, Death cannot await forever.”> Write in.
>>43964946> “Speak; tell me why have you attacked me and my Coven.”
>>43964946>> “Speak; tell me why have you attacked me and my Coven.”
>>43964946> “Speak; tell me why have you attacked me and my Coven.”From behind the girl a massive and mechanically augmented Ogryn appeared, it seemed that both is body and his mind had been enchanced as his speech was slurry but otherwise correct and much better sounding than any other ogryn that you had heard so far."Leave Miss Petra! You bad person! Petra is-""Sh..." With a mere whisper she had silenced him completely. "I am Petra, and we are the Nox Vox, theVoice of the Night. Since my birth I have been touched by the Emperor and gifted with two main powers, his foresight and his mighty voice. With the use of those gifts I have been able to guide my tribe into many rich ores and avoided dangers that could have otherwise proven fatal. Now my sight is telling me that something terrible will happen... and then it ceases, no matter what I change you always appear and then it all goes black. Without a chance of escaping our fate we instead decided to attack its source. Your face had appeared in my nightmares for months but it has been now when you have finally appeared. Since your coming you have done nothing but bring death; first with those poor slaves and believers that died to be close to you, then with the lost souls that ended fighting in the arena. We couldn't wait anymore. You have to die, so we can live.""I am not here to kill, I am here because I have been also called by a bigger force. I do not wish to harm any of you for I am not Death. If you all think that I am so dangerous then leave, I'll use my influence and money to get all of you some transport to some mining planet on the other side of the Galaxy."
>>43965296Petra shook her head."We are hard workers that believe in our own effort and traditions. Four centuries we have been drilling the mines and selling our ores to the Forges. This planet is our home and we cannot simply move away, the moment the last mine goes dry we would prefer to die than to leave...""I will gladly leave this world once its all over. But until then I cannot go away, I simply cannot.""Then you leave no other option. Today Death will fall."All around you the sound of several weapons retiring their safeties and having cartridges charged clicked and sounded. She had some truth on her words, no matter where you went people died. Still, you were convinced that there was a good reason for their deaths and sacrifices and that the moment all came to light they would finally be able to rest in peace.> Get into the Omega Drill, call for reinforcements.> Get into the Omega Drill, drive and run over the poorly protected warriors, mow them down.> Tell Axsiselios and Hellenica that the negotiations are over, fight the surrounding enemies with them and the Gun Servitors.> Tell them to go out and fight, fly and head into Petra. Maybe if you fight and kill her the rest of the men will flee in cowardice.> Write in.
>>43965312> Tell Axsiselios and Hellenica that the negotiations are over, fight the surrounding enemies with them and the Gun Servitors.
>>43965312>> Tell Axsiselios and Hellenica that the negotiations are over, fight the surrounding enemies with them and the Gun Servitors.
>>43965312> Tell Axsiselios and Hellenica that the negotiations are over, fight the surrounding enemies with them and the Gun Servitors."Attack!" You scream at the same time as her. Her voice is somewhat melodic and completely organic while yours is rough and deeply mechanical, still both sound at the same time and for the same duration and your voices unite in a single choral order that echoes across the walls of the cave and sounds like the voice of two angry gods.From the interior of the vehicle and like a lighting bolt the two Archmagii exited and jumped straight into some enemies that couldn't win. After them came the two Gun Servitors that immediately started aiming and shooting at every direction. You didn't looked at them more than necessary, it was time to attack.> Fly and throw your grenades to cause as many casualties as you can. When you are out of explosives descend and rapture someone carrying explosives and steal his/her powder explosives.> Descend into ground level and use your Lascannon to pierce as many people as you can with the fewest shots. > Drive the Drill and pierce the floor to turn the battleground into a death trap.> Write in.
>>43965575> Fly and throw your grenades to cause as many casualties as you can. When you are out of explosives descend and rapture someone carrying explosives and steal his/her powder explosives.
>>43965575Ok, seems like flying is the winning option, I need 3 rolls of d100, please.
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>43965677
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>43965677
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>43965598
>>43965575> Fly and throw your grenades to cause as many casualties as you can. When you are out of explosives descend and rapture someone carrying explosives and steal his/her powder explosives.In an instant you expand your six wings and feel their synth muscle and metallic skeleton completely extending to their full reach. You now look like a six winged angel, an angel of death for them. With a graceful hop you ascend into the sky and see how the warriors become more and more dwarfed the higher you go. They are insects, they always have been, it is just now that you have been able to see it. Their bodies are so exposed to flesh, they cannot see that bionic augmentation is the true answer, and that makes them weak.You have for different grenades, Krak, Frag, Stasis and Psyk-Out. Since the last two ones are extremely rare you only better use Frag and Krak for now.As you fly you grab both grenades on your hands, Krak in the left and Frag in the right, your thumbs are resting on their pins, ready to be pulled. There are enemies everywhere, you simply cannot miss. With your right thumb your remove the pin of the Frag grenade and launch it towards the mass of people. Its entire explosive radius traps everybody on its deadly hug, luckily for you some of the people trapped under its area of effect carried powder and dynamite charges, making them also explode when the fire reached their bodies and turning the small explosion into a branched one that killed several dozens of people and made the entire cavern shake and tremble. That, gave you an idea.
>>43966111Frag grenades are designed with the elimination of ground forces in mind, and as you have seen it is really effective in doing so. Krak grenades have a smaller radius and are more designed to breach edification and other defenses. Their explosive radius can indeed kill an objective, but it is way smaller compared with the Frag one and hence less effective.You fly upwards towards the massive water dripping stalactites. You had already seen the massive damage that one of those naturally created columns could do. Back in Aquacadens city you and your team reunited in a destroyed building that had been suddenly demolished when a stalactite from the above ceiling suddenly fell and completely breached the entire structure as if it were a lance. Once you find a big enough stalactite you unsheathe your hidden powerblade and use it to slow and carefully pierce a hole in its interior, when it is deep enough and with the help of your claw dendrite you place it deep into its interior and pull the pin. Without looking back you fly away and then heard a muffled explosion, the sound of cracking rock and finally, a massive tremble. A four story tall Stalactite is now descending at terminal velocity towards some enemies and possibly Hellenica and Axsiselios too. You thought of telling them of the incoming danger but then considered that in the end you wanted them dead, and thus doing so was pretty moot.
>>43966121It only lasted a few seconds on air, but its structure was so big that its descent seemed to be on slow motion. When it finally fell you heard a monstrous roar that resembled a massive ear deafening thunderous storm. The moment it impacted it fragmented even more, turning into a rain of sharp rocks that further expanded the area of impact and made it even more lethal. From the skies you briefly looked and located were the two Archmagii and Petra were located. You had managed to kill a great number of enemies but there were still several ones to dealt with.>Observe how Axsiselios fights, this might be a good chance to study him for the time you confront him.>Observe how Hellenica fights, this might be a good chance to study him for the time you confront him.>Observe Petra and what is she doing. You cannot afford having her escape now.> Aid Axsiselios in combat.> Aid Hellenica in combat.> Go to fight Petra.> Continue fighting on your own.>Write in.
>>43966149>Observe Petra and what is she doing. You cannot afford having her escape now.hack cameras to record and observe the other 2
>>43966149> Observe Petra and what is she doing. You cannot afford having her escape now.Petra was still on the roof of the abandonded Fabricatorium, she was having some kind of panic attack as she was seeing her men, his friends and family being butchered and shot. Right now the thing that she wanted to avoid was developing in front of her eyes.Her Ogryn bodyguard was trying to make her move, he could have easily taken her away with his ample arm and obscene muscles but still he was being patient and careful with her lithe body. She was still on your reach but sooner or later she would leave for her own safety.> Try to hack any camera to record and observe Axsiselios and HellenicaBefore deciding what to do with her you decided that you could maybe use the cameras of the building to record and observe the Archmagos for further study, if you were successful it would make a great intel. Without the need of stealth or delicacy you ended deciding to enter into the fabricatorium by crashing into one of the window panes. The impact was loud and noisy but still you didn't suffered any real damage.
>>43966570The interior was completely abandoned and odd enough it was brighter than the rest of the cave, not because there was some still functioning machinery that emitted light, there were some massive cylindrical containers with a huge Radioactivity symbol on them; the pass of time and lack of maintenance had made them crack and pour its toxic waste into the floor and as if it were fertilized from the soil a massive forest of glowing mushrooms had grown, some as tall and big as you were. You flew and searched for a control room that had any access to the cameras that surrounded the Fabricatorium, with them. After about five minutes flying around you managed doing so and kicked the door down, only to find an skeletal servitor that had apparently been dead for centuries. As you suspected there wasn't any kind of electrical current to awaken the machine spirits and make the cameras start recording. There was surely some kind of emergency furnace generatorium around for emergency cases.> Use your powersword to chop down some of the giant mushrooms and burn them into some furnace to generate electricity. This might make you suffer damage from gamma radiation thought.> Go out and kill some Nox Vox. Use their cadavers to feed the energy generators and awaken them. This will force you to go out and possibly reveal your position, flooding the interior of the Fabricatorium with enemies.> Go to the Omega Drill and pick some of its fuel reserve to feed the machines. This will awaken them but drain from your total fuel, making a possible future escape more dangerous.> Get some ports and cables and feed it with your own energy. This is the quickest option but will leave you completely tired.> Dismiss recording them and do something else ( Write in )
>>43966586> Use your powersword to chop down some of the giant mushrooms and burn them into some furnace to generate electricity. This might make you suffer damage from gamma radiation thought.
>>43966149>Observe Petra and what is she doing. You cannot afford having her escape now.
>>43966586> Use your powersword to chop down some of the giant mushrooms and burn them into some furnace to generate electricity. This might make you suffer damage from gamma radiation thought.You descended towards the neon green forest of mushrooms and proceeded to cut and chop them down with the aid of your powersword. For such a task an axe would have been way more useful but you couldn't choose what to use now, it didn't mattered much thought, thanks to the disruptor field of your power weapon cleaving through it was pretty easy. Each time you sank your blade into those mutant plants a spray of black and green liquid impacted you. It didn't seemed to affect your metallic parts much but when it touched your chest and filtrated into your organic chest it felt like a mild burning sensation followed by a terrible itching. At first you tried to ignore those effects, thinking about how weak your flesh was but it ended becoming completely unbearable and you ended removing your chest armor to see to full extent its effects. Your grayish pale skin was now completely red and covered in rashes and blisters, any trace of body hair had now fallen from your body. With a disgust filled smirk you simply placed your armor back on. This was only another example of why the flesh was weak.
>>43966929It didn't took you much longer to end completely chopping one of those huge mushrooms and placing it inside the incinerator furnace. You had to kickstart it with the use of your own flamer and a mechanic hand-crank. When it was ready completely sealed it and saw how its burning created some toxic smoke that would move some turbines and create the necessary energy to power the cameras.Slowly part of the dim lights started to return and the access cogitator came back from its slumber. Once inside it didn't took you long into accessing into its routines and having control of its cameras. It took you some time to find the cameras that were aiming and them thought, after looking at the hundred and four total cameras that were now active you managed to find Axsiselios and Hellenica, but not Petra, she had escaped. Once it was all done you started recording them onto two magnetic tapes and stood up, there was still work to do.> Rest and heal from your radioactive rash.> Go back to battle and kill as many enemies as you can.> Ascend towards the roof and try to persecute Petra.> Write in.
>>43966948> Ascend towards the roof and try to persecute Petra.
>>43966948> Ascend towards the roof and try to persecute Petra.If we can we need to convince the Nox Vox we're on their side
>>43966948> Ascend towards the roof and try to persecute Petra.With the cameras recording you didn't had the need to continue on the interior of such abandoned building. You left by the same window you entered by and ascended towards the broken roof in which Petra and her Ogryn bodyguard were located. For a second you looked down and noticed that there were now way fewer enemies, they were simply cannon fodder for those two deadly Armagos, they were dying by the dozens as the minutes passed and now even their beloved leader had left them. The only thing those Nox Vox members could hope for was a quick and relatively painless death.The roof extended as far as the eye could see. Since it was so dark this wasn't such a great distance as the dark substance that covered the roof managed to blend pretty well with the natural darkness of the cave. You should be careful, even with your wings any missed step could make you fail into a hard to see hole and make you plunge into your death. Flying was out of the possibilities because it was so high that impacting a stalagmite was a possibility. You gave a quick look at your surroundings and didn't saw them.> Try to use your echolocation to detect their heartbeats. If successful this will let you hear them but not see where you go. If your echolocation is good enough you will be able to fly towards them and avoid any stalactite.> Try to use your night vision to search for them. If successful this will let you find them and avoid any possible obstacle or danger but your four eyes will become bright green lights and make you more visible.> Try to use both your echolocation and night vision. This combo will completely allow you to find them but such a sudden increase in your senses might overwhelm or numb you. This is a dangerous option.> Write in.
>>43967248>> Try to use your echolocation to detect their heartbeats. If successful this will let you hear them but not see where you go. If your echolocation is good enough you will be able to fly towards them and avoid any stalactite.
>>43967248Damm, I don't know if my quest has lost steam, today is a bad day or I simply suck as a GM but today is being a slow day.Anyway. Echolocation wins. Roll 1d100
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>43967438
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>43967438I think today is just slow, but her I'm still here Axi
>>43967248> Try to use your echolocation to detect their heartbeats. If successful this will let you hear them but not see where you go. If your echolocation is good enough you will be able to fly towards them and avoid any stalactite.You close your eyes and crouch on the floor to gain better stability. With a mental link you activate your echolocation device and experience the world in a completely different spectrum. There are several noises around, thousands of stalactites dripping water, the distant sound with dozens of guns, screams and explosions, the great cooling fans of the machinery that you had activated below. All that and many other sounds that you couldn't identify became one great white noise that made you be completely unable to discern the different sources. It was incredibly frustrating to know that you were physically able to ear their escaping steps, but that your brain was simply unable to separate them from the rest. With a defeated sigh you took the cause as lost and sat on the floor, while you awaited for the echolocation to slowly turn off. You couldn't join the fight right now with them activated, it would both turn you deaf and crazy. It took the bionic augmentation a excruciatingly painful five minutes to completely deactivate. By the time it was done the fight was over, countless dead bodies plagued the ground, the few alive ones were maimed and bleeding profusely so their death would come to them sooner or later. The only casualty on your side was a Gun Servitor, that ended without ammunition and was then blown to death in a suicide attack.
>>43967771When you descended the foul mouth of Axsiselios said something about you being a coward or something similar, you weren't in the mood of hearing him and your ears were now somewhat deafened from having overstressed the Echolocator so much. Without a word you went towards the Drill and ascended by using the same tunnel as before.The Academy was still damaged but it was obvious that during your descent the lockdown had been lifted, the dead had been moved away, the wounded had been taken to the infirmary and that the first reparations were already taking place. "I want to know everything. Tell me all about the Benefactors." You said to one of the Archmagos that received you once you had left the vehicle. You were incredibly pissed and even if such attitude hindered your facade it didn't mattered you. Everybody was saying that you were an evil as if it were your fault. You were created this way and you would make the ones who did you like that pay. Still, to completely fufill your revenge you first needed to gather as many information as you could, the moment you had any clue of treason the Inquisition would completely shut down the Coven, including Axsiselios and Hellenica."Well...yes of course. Soon very soon you will be able to meet him. He is also eager to know you, Heracor."
Alright I will end it for today. Sorry but such slow days just kill the mood for me. Not gonna lie I want to end the quest already. Anyway, as always 30 minutes for questions and such:I have archived it there:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=NHQ83Thanks for playing!
>>43967856Why didn't you roll our 3rd dice? How fucked is everything?

>>43967894>Why didn't you roll our 3rd dice?My bad. Missed that detail. Sorry>Why didn't you roll our 3rd dice?Its about to turn completely fucked.>No problem man, just know you've still got fans aroundI know and I appreciate it. Its just that due to the fucking timezones I have to start the quest pretty late and I end tired only after an hour or so. Its starting to take a toll on me.
>>43967856I'm very late.Sad we didn't catch the seer. She could've given more info on the death she sees in the future. Though we didn't get a third roll.
Oh yeah, I forgot to add the pic of Petra. here it is.
