Rolled 6 (1d10)>>47166854
>>47166993-The Adeptus Mechanicus-We serve the Omnisiah and the masters of Mars.now we need a 1d10 for our succession Laws
Rolled 5 (1d10)>>47167060I don't really like knightly houses serving the Zd Mech, but okay.
>>47167136-Investiture-All titles and Knights are given to a member of the House (who may then distribute them as necessary) chosen by the current member of the House.Next up are the gender laws for these rules, 1d10 if you wouldn't mind.

>>47167341-Nonchalant-We don't care all that much for ceremony. We have giant death robots of mechanical glory!1d10 for our demeanor.also guys please slow down, i'd like for us to have a few more people when we finish rolling.
Rolled 9 (1d10)>>47167460new to the thread here! rollin'
>>47167799-Brothers in Battle-We care a lot about family, and would maybe even remove our own knights from frontlines, just to help a brother in danger.1d10 for house flaw.
>>47167931>>47167460>>47167318>>47167275We seem like a reasonable tight-knight family. I'm feeling a martial arts clan, but with knights.
Rolled 10 (1d10)>>47167931rollin' again, then i'll let other people have a turn.
>>47168135-Local cult-The practices of the House are weird and probably quite unsavory.

>>47168936Violently murdlized Orks AND Chaos...I can dig it.
>>47168957He's the hero Forege World Graia needed could he have earned his heroic status during the canon invasion of Graia during the space marine game?
>>47169022I like it.
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>47169022That sounds good, Imma roll for our domain size before OP gets back.

>>47169087-Sizeable-Multiple sar systemsnext up is what our homeworld is like (1d100)>>47169022He from 30M not 40M
>>47169162>He from 30M not 40MTitus or the Hero?
Rolled 87, 48 = 135 (2d100)>>47169162
>>47169196The Hero.On another not 30M is also when we were found.
>>47169202Uninhabited desert world, but i would apreciate it if you only had rolled the first one.
>>47169240Did we ever decide what our hero did to earn his herodom? I don't think OP ever posted results.
>>47169212well, uhhhh, what if our weird cult believes he was reincarnated repeatedly into the same knightly house?
>>47169314Like an Eldar exarch?Heresy.
>>47169240also if we are going to keep desert i have two things to say: first a part of our insignia be pic related, and that the next roll is house hierarchy, which is on a 1d10>>47169299I thought we ahd him do both>>47169301It's okay>>47169314Thats "bretty gool!
Rolled 7 (1d10)>>47169330
>>47169330Man I was trying for a sphinx/manticor theme on my knight house, but then GW cut the tomb kings stuff I'd convert from
>>47169320good thing we are a cult and we keep it to ourselves.
>>47169363-Flexible-Sometimes the lower ranked knights get to have fun stuff too.homeworld rule 1d10>>47169378Shit sucks!
Question, are knight houses ever founded after the great crusade or are they merely rediscovered?

>>47170134-Administratum-who'da thunk that people without all that much bureaucracy, could even begin to like these bookworms.Anymways next up is 1d100 for our greatest foes.
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>47170171
>>47170304-Dark Eldar-It would appear the our current foes are angry flying bdsm enthusiasts.
>>47170079That's a good counter balance of dogmas
>>47170171They probably do great smoothing out all our paper work and ensuring we get to doing our jobs, this house has a very practical feel
>>47170329is there any other kind?...don't answer that.
>>47170329Now all we need is:>A name>A more defined bacstory>To make our coat of arms>To make a color scheme>And a lot more stuff that i don't know.
>>47170404Colors are lapis blue with bronze/gold highlights
>>47170404I'm pushing for House Addams, because we're creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, altogether ooky.Just for clarity, I don't care if they aren't called House Addams, it was just the first thing that sprang to mind upon seeing that we are tight-knit family of Knights with strange customs and stealth tactics.
>>47170428I was thinking more of a sandy yellow, in honor of our homeworld.
>>47170479I was thinking of the stones used in Egyptian headresses
>>47170489>>47170428Maybe something like this?
I can tell that one of three things are happening. Either everyone fucked off the second that we finished rolling, Everyone is writing some absolutely massive, or everyone is waiting on each other to make something.To the ones that are stil on this thread, please tell each other what you're doing! on another note I'm going to sleep, I expect great things from you anons! don't fail me now!
>>47171448watching, I've already participated a lot and am waiting for other people to submit ideas. so #3 i guess.
So a bit like this? No sphinx emblem
>>47171448I'm typing as it comes:So we're a tight-knit Knight family, coming from a barren desert world and possessing several star systems. We're not really into laws and rules, but the Administratum (who delegated one of its member only to take care of our worlds) likes us, probably because we don't usually question orders and follow them to a T. Except when a family member is in danger.Although we officially serve the AdMech, we often turn to the light of the Emperor, mostly because we believe in the superiority of the human body and mind over the machine. A belief coming from the most ancient times of our family: we always believed in reincarnation and there are several myths telling of appearances of our beloved ancestors during glorious battles, many years after their death, coming back to protect their offspring.Our home-world is a sanctuary on which only the family and a few chosen ones are authorized to set foot. It is also where we store all of our currently unused Knight armours, which were left there and more or less forgotten by the Adeptus Mechanicus. Once every ten years, our family reunites on its world to celebrate our fallen brothers and sisters and hunt the giant sandshark, a beast so gigantic only knight-sized opponents can rivalize with it.We are well-known for being able to hide our armours in almost any type of terrain, and we favor the elimination of big and impressive targets. We consider the delibarate use of glorious Knights against feeble infantry and light vehicles to be dishonorable.

We consider the delibarate use of glorious Knights against feeble infantry and light vehicles to be dishonorable.Actually a reasonable tactic when the main weapon of our main knight variant is a melta-gun x 100. We would need to sneak close and focus on the larger vehicles and creatures.
>>47172277>house AtreidesI don't know what it is but I like that picture. So I'm gonna say yes.
>what I keep thinking when I read this thread
>>47172375It's the protagonists noble house of origin from Frank Heberts "Dune." I would recommend it along with starship troopers and the foundation trilogy as the three of them provide at least 90% of the ideas that 40k draws from and at least 50% that the rest of science fiction does.>>47172478You're adorable anon.So theme ideas we have for our knightly house.1. Martial arts clan. >>471679972. Addams Family. >>471688063. Sphinx themed? >>471693784. House Atreides >>47172277Any I missed? Any additional? any votes?
>>47172610T-t-thanks anon-kun!What reference was used to roll this?
>>47172653https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Imperial_Knight_House_Creation_Tables>>47172610For the record, i'm in favor of of combining options 2, 3 and 4. A house of wildly divergent "creepy kooky" character types like said pic >>47172277. The act noble but use reasonable and sneaky tactics drawn from the native people of the planet the not!fremen . Also lots of sphinx imagery.We could even do a mild dune parody if we wanted.
