In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium there is only war. Imperium of Man, once strong and proud, now is slowly crumbling, whole regions of space are lost to the horrors that lurk in the darkness of the void. Sector Deus is just one of the thousands of Imperial provinces that form the front line in the war to defend Humanity itself. Corruption from within and aggression from without threaten it. But the Emperor sends us hope. High Lords of Terra commissioned a Chapter of Adeptus Astartes, finest warriors Humanity has ever seen, to defend this region of space. They are the last line of defence that hold Age of Ruin at bay. They are the Ghosts of Retribution and this is their tale.
+About+Chapter Quest is set in Warhammer 40k universe, players are controlling a nameless Chapter Master, leader of the Ghosts of Retribution Chapter - autonomous brotherhood of genetically engineered warriors tasked with protection of mankind.This quest is a mixture of traditional role playing, grand strategy and logistical management. Main narrative is driven by the players rather than QM and doesn't have a pre-set "main storyline".+Briefing+Chapter Chronicles and starting point for the initiates:http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_Quest_WikiDatalogs from the previous thread:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/47759952/Battle voxcaster frequency:https://client02.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.net+Thought for the day: Sometimes a cunning peace treaty can hurt your enemies more than an unplanned declaration of war.+

Possibly from the maker (Regon?)7.get position of voidshield and if possible any teleport scramblers, so we could use teleportariums to get people out of his stronghold. (Note teleport homers are small. Find a way to attach a homer without the marine noticing it. Magnets? Sensors in PA=) thats it for now....

>>737774Thank you for bringing up a couple of important things.+++So, you have gifted Deimos Pattern human-sized Predator tank to Nestorium, but I don't think we agreed what exactly you wanted to do with it. These were your options:Regon also offers you four ways in which Nestorium could use the tanka) Repair and return where it belongs - to the battlefield! [cost d10 wealth, Nestorian techpriests will charge you only for the parts required to fix it]b) Sell the tank to one of the First Founding Chapters, they are rich and this antique piece could be worth 50+ Wealth (roll d100 for Negotiate/Trade)c) Use it to spread the fame of Ghosts of Retribution - send it to Great Lords of Terra as a gift (50% chance of getting +1 Favour if they will appreciate it)d) Start a secret Astartes-Nestorium project to dismantle Predator and try to understand how it was made. [Warning: HERESY OPTION]+Roll d100 to convince Regon+Roll d100 to convince Destros+Roll 3d10 for how many years the project will take+++Space Marines will have some AA weapons, usually marines tasked with bringing rocket launchers into battle will have a spare AA rocket with limited tracking capability just in case, but this loadout could be adjusted if it is expected that mission will make Chapter face more aerial enemies than usual. As in most cases Chapter commands the skies, AA has never been a priority, so you have no dedicated AA platforms or weapons.+++Ursus residence plans - as these are considered to be a state secret, inquiry about them might be considered to have heretical implications. If you trust your bond with Regon enough, you may ask him directly whether he can get access to them, but you are not even guaranteed that it was Adeptus Mechanicus who built the palace - there are other organisations and guilds that might have had this task.>>737891Please roll d100 for warp travel and d100 for Brethorius.
>>737940>So, you have gifted Deimos Pattern human-sized Predator tank to Nestorium.I was personally of the opinion that we were merely gifting it to Nestorium to reaffirm our alliance. Nestorium can do what they want with it, be that using it or locking it in a glass case to ogle.Any other thoughts?

An addition. Do we get a conclusion for this xenolore rollhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/44427392/#p44428716related to the pirated merchant convoy?It was for recognising the symbol on the ork(?) ships.
>>737940To the landspeeder storm issue:can we mod existing landspeeders?If not contact Nestorium.I want 3 to get some scouts to the planet Kruun which fell into Triachy hands, for a recon-mission.The idea is to drop the LS far away from anything remotely habitable (ocean if possible) so they will go in (and out) unnoticed. Hence we cannot use existing equipment.

>>738115A large proportion of our serfs are failed aspirants, who will be tougher than guardsmen and very well trained.As far as I know they're quite well equipped as standard, in order to help protect chapter property.The exact number of serfs we have has never been made specific.If I had to guess, I'd say we probably have about ~50,000-100,000 in the tombstone. Perhaps half of which would be 'tough' serfs.Then there's like half a million combat-tier serfs in the chapter fleet as crew men.

Pax Sepulchrum emerges from the warp near Ornsworld, a once verdant Ratling Imperial world, now desolate and grim after the attrocities commited there during the Gothic War. Servitor announcer wakes from his slumber:>Praise the Emperor. Reentry successful. Backlash minimal, factor 0.387. All sectors clear. All seals secure. Praise the Emperor.Brethorius exhales content. He is among the finest warriors his Chapter can offer, but even so, warp jumps always make him uneasy. While few apart from his closest brothers know this, but Brethorius would rather wrestle a pack of rabid kroot hounds naked rather than take one extra unneccessary warp jump. >System scan, now. Can we pick up Damokleon's signal?Servitors eyes zoom in and out of focus as his brain retrieves information from the ship's interface.>Affirmative, my master. Brother Damokleon and the frigates are waiting for us near Ornsworld's moons.Now it was Brethorius turn to say:>Praise the Emperor... Haven't seen that bastard in a while. Prepare my lander!An hour later brothers, a stubborn Librarian and an even more stubborn Captain hugged each other with enough force to crush a personal autocar. Damokleon greeted Brethorius on the bridge of Vanguard. His face smiles, but he seems to have aged a decade in those fews years.>Come, sit, brother, I have a long story to tell...Roll d100 for White Emissary

>>738168The Imperium, the Inquisition in particular, get very antsy when astartes deploy mortal troops in something that's more than defence of their own property.I'm not saying we can't. I just don't think it's a good idea until we're powerful enough to ignore such antsy opinion (like the Ultramarines are).
>>738190I was thinking we could just paint them in Mormarkian colours or our colony world whose name I forgot and call it a day But that'd probably also raise more questions. There's also saying they're the retinue of that one blank we were gifted but ehhhhSpeaking of Space Marine controlled Empires do we have any plans to colonise more worlds? Or develop them?
>>738081Okay, time to bring this chapter back in the war. We stalled long enough with secondary concerns.Operation CuriousShadow:Inventory Mostly functional Vagabond-class Merchant Trader -Prepare trader to look even older and more dilipated,-Setup marines in freigther to ambush any looting party, covertly, hidden.-Tow near the triachy boder, make it drift into scanner range, as the triachy is in need for ships they might bite.-Ambush the looters and capture them and their vessel if possible.-AssetsVagabond-class Merchant Trader -Fast ships, hunter, if GoR are done playing spesspolice, to intercept the looters-50 Space MarinesGoals-Capture Triachy members, if possible higherups and their ship to get some up-to-date intel on the triachy.Fuckups, we continue playing spesspolice and capture only some scoundrels hoping for quick cash.
>>738228We have a vardan PDF force which would technically count as chapter serfs but in vardan colours instead of chapter colours.But again, PDF aren't allowed to be deployed in other systems, technically.
>>738228Deus is Ripe with Renegade, War-torn and unclaimed worlds.But people are worried about the Inq. inquisiting too much
Cogitators Online.>>738251Tactical assessment: Triarchy forces overwhelm deployed forces or simply destroy the transport once the abmush is sprung. Loss estimates: Severe.>>738228Any regiments raised for expeditionary use and not placed in the care of the Imperial Guard will doubtlessly cause queries. Raising regiments and earning the trust of Imperial Guard command is a possibly viable scenario. Scenario risks accusations of heresy or use of raised regiments as fodder by political enemies.
>>738103It is a bad year for the Vardan farmers, some strange pestilence killed most of the crops. Kvei Lohar informs you of this, but doesn’t request any assistance. What will you do?a) They are not even Chapter serfs, it is not our concernb) We can use this opportunity to force them to buy some extra food from our trading station above (gain +2d10)c) Let’s offer them aid in exchange for giving up more of their rights – it will make Kvei Lohar more powerful (Kvei Lohar will be grateful, also due to extra taxes you will get a permanent +3W yearly income as long as he is in power)d) Lets offer them aid with no strings attached (cost 10W)e) Organise a comprehensive investment into Vardan agriculture to make sure that such pestilences don't occur ever again and there's no threat of famine ever again (cost 80W)>>738087>>738096Income: 124Eco-damage: 3Exhaust resources as per industrial consumption>>738115Yes, you are allowed to organise/maintain your serfs as you wish. More information on mobilisation here, if you are interested to do this on large scale:http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Planetary_Mechanics#Militarisation_.26_Mobilisation>Galaxy eventsIncreased supply of cybernetics in Sector Deus and wider Segmentum allowed local economies to restore some of the old manufactorums that have been closed down due to lack of suitable replacement parts.

>>738253Oh. I always thought it a waste to have thousands if not tens of thousands of able-bodied men just seductively oiling up machines with the tech priests and flying our birds etc etc when they could be doing so much more.Also thought it neat to have our serfs doing the fighting they originally signed up for instead of being primarily support.>>738258I always felt like we could increase our wealth and influence more. Felt like we been constrained to one area for too long. Also hardier and more recruits in the event we get fucked up again. That might just be me being too greedy>>738307>MS is alive Well hot diggity damn
>>738333>I always felt like we could increase our wealth and influence more.So have I.We have a jungle-world, and an ice-world to get recruits from. We should expand our repertoir a bit more.That, and at least one planet should be returned to the Imperium's fold by the Chapter during it's career, I think.
>>738333>Oh. I always thought it a waste to have thousands if not tens of thousands of able-bodied men just seductively oiling up machines with the tech priests and flying our birds etc etc when they could be doing so much more.I think the able-bodied men are doing stuff like patrolling for intruders, helping run the fleet ships, and guarding stuff.We use the hot women serfs for seductively piling up our machines, c'mon man.>Also thought it neat to have our serfs doing the fighting they originally signed up for instead of being primarily support.Fair point in theory. In practice having a bunch of mortals slowing our force down is at odds with an astartes proper operational procedure.They can't use drop pods alongisde us. Trying to land them into direct combat zones would be a slaughter. Trying to bring them onto space hulks or into boarding actions with use would be a lot of unnecessary waste.Ultimately, the only time astartes *should* ever be in fixed line warfare is when we're on the defensive. In which case using our serfs is a-okay.
>>738251I think the Triarchy shouldn't be bothered until we don't root out the traitors among us (AKA Ursus), and replace them.If we wanted to stand up against them we should have saved that planet instead. Now we must make certain that the sacrifice wasn't in vain.
>>738307Hey MS!Would you mine describing the uses and value of the archeotech plasma reactor to skargan?And also the whole folkvangr thing, so we an move the Krieg 128th off (also the ionian temptest page needs updating to reflect their training).
>>738346Do we even have any free ships and squads to send on Colony establishing missions? If we do go that route >>738358Yeah I was thinking covert Ops, holding cities, and occasionally deploying alongside us the same way we'd use IG Regiments. They'd basically be Stormtroopers 2.0Especially if we Used the book of the raven to give them better augmentations and gene mods without using the explicit SM augs

>>738410I like it, don't we have some land speeders already though?
>>738473Only 4.GOTTA GO FAST
>>738410>>738473>>738495I have to agree with Lyk here. I can't recall a single instance where we used Land SpeedersOr the bikes
>>738501We used them during the betrayal at varda.Also if we have more, using them might actually be a meaningful option.
>>738526okay I am convinced. Make it so.
Hihi. We do care. We're just waiting patiently for a response.
>>738063I think we should have a discussion on land speeder types at some point, however Landspeeder Storm appear to be a different kind of speeder, not merely with a different loadout of weapons, like for example Tornado or Typhoon. Because of this I'll rule for the moment that you need to acquire them from a Chapter/Forge World that has them or their STC plans. Nestorium doesn't.>>738114>>738100You don't have access to the guest list, but you assume that it's quite likely that at least someone from Ursus dynasty will pay respects. Whether Larion himself will be there is highly doubtful.>>738128Is spending a point of Favour approved by the Quest Council?I will leave interaction with Dermont until Mormark events.>>738137Historical reasons. Can be always changed though.>>738146Depends on your definition of Chapter serf. This description is certainly true for Tombstone serfs, however citizens of Varda, which is part of your realm, are normal imperials. However they also under imperial law could be considered to be your Chapter serfs if argued in court. Or not, if it doesn't suit you. I will not comment on numbers of serfs until situation doesn't require it (because I would need to make some important calculations), but there are certainly at least 10 serfs per Space Marine in Tombstone, possibly more.>>738168I would disagree with "better than stormtrooper" quote. On average Chapter serfs are combat wise similar to guardsmen, only they have no heavy weaponry/vehicles, apart from what Tombstone fortifications provide. If you want to drill your serfs more, you could make it into a policy, but it would take some time/events and would have other impacts as well.>>738228This might solve the issues to certain extent, but Luigi is right as well - if you do it too obviously, there will be consequences.>>738187=White Emissary=Damokleon tells his story to Brethorius:>Oh brother, you can't imagine, how great it was to visit Holy Terra once more. After we were sent to Deus after the Chapter was commissioned, I never thought that I would live long enough to see the splendid towers of Terran hives once again. But we didn't stop to enjoy the views for too long - our mission was too important. Within a month we managed to get in touch with Drey Kasting and we arranged a meeting with him. When we met, we...a) Talked with him for many hours about our common past and how he helped our Chapter, before we approached the topic at hand.b) We cut to the chase immediately and told him that Sector Deus could be on a brink of a civil war and we want High Lords of Terra on our side.c) We engaged in philosophical debate about the future and common good of the Imperium, raising a question of whether sometimes deposing local authority in service of greater authority is unjust?(pick one)
>>738323Please deduct 10W.>>738410Approved.+++Apologies about getting bogged down with trying to fix my computer. We will continue the next thread from here on.
>>738893Thanks Skargan.Any answer to >>737774 for how the kids feel about Ursus.
>>738811>Is spending a point of Favour approved by the Quest Council?I'm not particularly opposed to it >If you want to drill your serfs more, you could make it into a policy, but it would take some time/events and would have other impacts as well.As the person who suggested it I'm incredibly biased towards it happening sooooo.... Yeah.Also>B. We cut to the chase immediately and told him that Sector Deus could be on a brink of a civil war and we want High Lords of Terra on our side.Something so serious should be first priority
>>738811>b) We cut to the chase immediately and told him that Sector Deus could be on a brink of a civil war and we want High Lords of Terra on our side.My vote
>>739074Seconding this. Shit getting too real to delay getting this info to them.
>>739082>>739074>>738978>We cut to the chase immediately and told him that Sector Deus could be on a brink of a civil war and we want High Lords of Terra on our side.Damokleon smiled and his grin reminded Brethroius of some of the finer specimens of predators usually encountered in Vardan jungles. He was proud of what they achieved.>Emperor smiled upon us. Kasting not only didn't dismiss us, he listened to me without a word. Never seen him so keen. When he answered me, I knew he was on our side, or at least as much as he could be. We spoke with him till dawn, he then consumed some stimulants, made some calls, then we spoke again, this time until sunset and only then we parted our ways. We negotiated and he left me with a list of instructions and told me to relay them to Chapter Master.+To -redacted-, Lord of Ghosts of Retribution+Official stance of High Lords of Terra regarding Ursus Dynasty is that they are temporary custodians of the Sector throne. While de facto they have been recognised, there are no documents officially granting them Dominion over Sector Deus. If a rightful claimant would happen to rise to the throne with sufficient backing, High Lords of Terra wouldn't object to that.Notes:1) Drey Kasting will arrive to Sector Deus in person to meet with Belisarian heirs.2) If Chapter would find sufficient proof that removing Ursus from power would be beneficial to the Imperium, they are to inform High Lords of Terra before taking any action3) Chapter would have to strike swiftly and ensure that this coup doesn't become a civil war.4) Which means that Chapter would have to ensure support in at least two thirds of major factions within Sector - Imperial Guard, Imperial Navy, Inquisition, Adeptus Sororitas, Ecclesiarchy, Adeptus Mechanicus, Imperial Nobility, Adeptus Arbitres and Merchant League. Without this support HLoT would have trouble to endorse you.5) Sector productivity and security must not be threatened. This is of paramount importance.6) High Lords will proclaim their support to whichever side will emerge victorious and will involve themselves as little as possible, unless either your side or Ursus would start acting in anti-Imperial manner.7) Coup should be as legitimate as possible. Outright assassination is permitted only in cases where the coup is on the verge of failing and turning into a civil war.Are you ready to proceed on these conditions?(Making this deal will cost you 1 Favour, you can spend 1 more favour in order to change up to 2 conditions on this list or add 1 of your own)
Rolled 1 (1d3)>>738081heresy loss
>>739266So the last one is more of a suggestion, I take it.
>>739533Seems like more of a warning. But yeah.I was considering using a favour point to reduce taxes on sector, that would earn us support of nobility and merchant league.Navy and AdMech we can get support from due to pre-existing friendship.Inquisition and Sororitas we can get support from with our evidence of corruption.As for the Imperial Guard, they're controlled by Larion's brother Drakkon. We need to find out more about their relationship. Maybe Drakkon won't like the idea of his niece being fucked by her father? We could turn him against Larion.Ecclesiarchy is hard to get support of. Kest will want large secession of power.Adeptus Arbites probably don't like us after we abandoned Kruun, a penal world and their property. However they might hate Ursus more if they learn he's the reason it was attacked.
>>739557We could use that blank as proof that a renowned inquisitor is butt friends with us as an extra with the inq
>>739557You don't have to get the support of Kest, or the Iron Monks. Court the minor factions, then just use the SoBs/Inquisition to force them to tow the line. Kest may be the top ranking priest in the sector, but he only remains as such when his power base agrees, and he can't keep his power with just the Iron Monks.Adeptus Arbites are ultimately beholden to the law. If you make your move quickly enough and have the evidence, they'll be forced to attempt to keep the peace.
>>739661I was thinking of telling Engel about Dreifus' confession. She can investigate the alleged assassinations and see if Kest is guilty of them.Maybe some of her sororitas were hurt or killed in the process of the assassinations, that would make her really mad.
>>739661>You don't have to get the support of Kest,Maybe we don't have to, but would it be really that difficult?The guy approached us to make an allegiance against Ursus. And we are supporting the descendants of a Saint to become sector lords, two things that would help us.Three; if we are willing to show a little humilty, and privately admit that he was right, and Chapter Master was wrong concerning Ursus, his ego might help us, but that might not be necessary.
Goddamnit I always miss the threads. I'll try for next time.
>>745140please don't necro thx.

+New session+Hey guys. As this thread is still up, we will continue playing here.+++So, did Damokleon sign a pact with the High Lords of Terra? (cost 1 Favour in exchange for them supporting you in case of a coup). I need a few people to confirm.+++Also,can someone roll for how well did Damokleon manage to look into the past of the Chapter?
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>747452>Also,can someone roll for how well did Damokleon manage to look into the past of the Chapter?
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>747452>So, did Damokleon sign a pact with the High Lords of Terra?I think yes.We should show them the evidence we have asap.Can we spend an additional favour point to reduce tithe taxes? This would help get the Nobility and Merchant League on our side when we need them.We'll also need to get Drey Kasting's advice on how to ensure this doesn't explode into civil war. Politics and stuff is his game.Also rolling.
>>747470I said so in the chat, who is sector lord is rather irrelevant for us, so we could gather evidence, make a big meeting and either Ursus asks for a crusade against the triachy or we we show the evidence or Ursus being less then loyal. That way Ursus can keep all his assets and the sector will be as stable as always. Except for the Triachy. We might even get a suprise attack on the triachy who will be told everything is fine and the military force is for #whatever in another sector
>>747486Well I personally think that's the wrong way to go. Firstly it doesn't break our vassalage to Ursus, secondly he'll immediately be thinking of ways to get rid of us. Thirdly, the Belisarians are the rightful heirs of an imperial saint and to the sector throne, which we should care about from an IC perspective.
Opening the discussion about Land Speeder Storms. As far as I know the basic LS Storm is the same as a regular land speeder but with the rear weapons pods removed. In my opinion this should be a fairly simple pre-battle modification by techpriests, but obviously I'm biased.Regardless, I may as well ask how much they'll cost to import from a forge world that DOES have the STC for them?
>>747486Dude we care who runs the placeand I for one want us to do so
>>747467Damokleon and his team managed to unlock one interesting lead, pick where they found it:>Administratum records>Schola Progenium>Scholastia Psykana>Adeptus Mechanicus>Drey Kasting>Strange encounter>>747470Please reduce your Favour by 1. >Favour in exchange for reduced taxesThat's possible, however the tricky part is to get the message through that the taxes were reduced directly because of your influence. It is possible to do so, but you would be able to affect either your reputation with Merchants (reduce import/export tithes) or with Nobility (reduce tithes on holdings and titles). You can by spending 1 Favour:a) Affect Merchantsb) Affect Nobilityc) Try to affect both, but you would need to succeed Chapter Master's oratorship skill roll and he would have to visit Tachion Primaris to give a speech
>>747523>Scholastia PsykanaMy vote.> It is possible to do so, but you would be able to affect either your reputation with Merchants (reduce import/export tithes) or with Nobility (reduce tithes on holdings and titles). Noted. Will see if necessary later.
>>747523>>Schola ProgeniumLet's go kiddie adventure!
>>747486If you wish,you can always visit him at his Imperial palace or arrange a meeting, either by video feed or in person.>>747515As discussed in the chat, your land speeders will be split up into three different types:Tornado - primarily armed with anti-infantry weaponry, crew - 2Typhoon - primarily armed with anti-tank weaponry, crew - 2Storm - light weaponry, transport capacity - 5 scouts, crew - 2Tornado/Storm = 5W // x5 = 22WTyphoon = 8W // x5 = 34W>>747551>>747538Apothecary Avicenor was tasked with looking into the records of Schola Progenium archives from the time when the Chapter Founding was planned. He was looking through the selection procedures for potential recruits who were drafted from there and he found something interesting among the notes of the former headmaster, who was responsible for recruit allocation:>236.275.M41 Instructions from Lord Zykion have been observed with great care. Recruits with high compatibility index towards RG gene-seed have been relocated to Luna where their initiation and training will shortly begin. However we have received a a request for more recruits for -871-. They have been Founded just over three years ago and apparently already suffered horrendous losses. They don't have a viable recruiting ground, possibly because of how fickle their gene-seed is. Recruits will need to be sent to Sicyon, Lysades Subsector(*), I will need to make sure to request a ship from the Chartist Captains, in case SD would require recruits to be send somewhere else if their combat operations moved on.
>>747678Seems like somebody is making marines and it isn't us.That's not good.
>>747678I hope there someone was intelligent enough to ask what name chapter 871 has. Also where Lysades subsector is (relative to home)
>>747684I think it means that some of the recruits initially earmarked for the chapter master program were instead sent to this 'Chapter 871'. Who *they* are, I have no idea.>>747678Interesting. I think we should move onto meeting Drey Kasting and giving him the proof now. As well as the other secondary objectives of White Emissary.What do I roll to try and contact Adriel?
>>747685I feel like if we'd know the name we wouldn't be calling it a number
>>747685Those were the only notes you managed to find on the subject at Schola Progenium - the whole project was ultra secret.Please roll your Astronavigation to find records about Lysades subsector.>>747686If you want to contact Adriel, please retreat to your room, tell me a bit about how you will mediate, then try to contact her. Tell me how many power dice you want to use, then roll.+++Please tell me in more detail whom you present with Revenant Armour and how exactly you do it. It matters who receives it first.
>>747718There's only two unnamed Revenants. I've always figured that Geron selects them himself.>Please roll your Astronavigation to find records about Lysades subsector.I think we should defer to Valerius Jaenar for this.
>>747725The question was about whom you present on Terra with Revenant armour. Which one of the organisations/groups you mentioned.>Valerius JaenarAccepted, please roll.
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>747718>Please roll your Astronavigation to find records about Lysades subsector.
>>747729>The question was about whom you present on Terra with Revenant armour. Which one of the organisations/groups you mentioned.Ohh sorry. I figured our daddies the Raven Guard.
>>747732they are and we shoiuld give it to them
>>747730>Lysades Sector... Yes, I recall it, let me look it up. Oh, yes, it's right next door. Well, by galactic standards. It is located on the far rim of the Gothic Sector.http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Lysades>>747732When Damokleon delivered the STC of the armour to the Raven Guard Leutenant Venn, who serves as their permanent representative on Terra, he is astounded.>This is... This is unbelievable. I am absolutely out of my depth on what to do with this. This is way beyond my competence, I need to contact the Chapter.Venn thanks you greatly for the copy of the blueprints and suggests that he will send this to the Raven Guard. He also asks you:>Would it be possible for the Chapter Masters to meet? This is something that could have a big impact on many things... And please, don't mention this to anyone until they decide on what is the correct course of action.
>>747795We'll do pick related
>>747795>Would it be possible for the Chapter Masters to meet? This is something that could have a big impact on many things... And please, don't mention this to anyone until they decide on what is the correct course of action."I would be honoured to meet the chapter master of our esteemed primogenitor."Any way to find out about astartes operations in Lysades Sector in 275.M41?Only other part of White Emissary left unanswered is giving the space station STCs to Mars. After that we can move on to Black Templars? Or something else.
>>747811After you hand over space station STC to Mars, they are very pleased with your actions. As Damokleon was visiting the High Palace on Terra either way, he was summoned by Korrantus [KOR-111-111], the Fabricator General of Mars itself, and a holder of the title of High Lord of Terra. His mechadendrites whirr and snap in your presence:>Warrior, you make your kind proud, by helping servants of Omnisiah in our quest for knowledge. Such gifts must be reciprocated. Your brotherhood was not on our radar before, but now it is. Ask and we will grant you your wishes, within reason. Do you desire wealth? Weapons? Something else? Or will my personal sincere "thank you" will suffice?
>>747857Who's up for 200 suits of termie armour?
>>747866Do you request that?
>>747866Good luck famalam.>>747857"Esteemed Fabricator-General. I would ask for nothing now, however at some point in the future we may find ourselves crusading againt foul heretics that pervert the Omnissiah's works. The Stryrian Triarchy in Sector Deus. Martian support in such a crusade would be greatly appreciated. The local Nestorians would take part as well, hopefully any doctrinal contentions can be washed away in battle together."y/n?
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>747866>01:26 sprocket1 "PLEASE GIVE THE NESTORIANS A HONEST TRIAL."also an optionBut we should change honest to favourable, since honest can mean pretty much anything>>747888the chatboys are still being undecided bitchesnice trips thoughcelebratory roll
>>747891This seems alrightYou sure that we shouldn't throw in some termie-armour or the like though?
>>747891Bad idea IMO,the Nestorium trial is something we should not influence, if only to get out of the storm, if they find flaws. (If they find flaws, they are usually right about quarantining lest demons pop up everywhere)
>>747919How about we tell Mars that the Ecclesiarchy in Sector Deus is trying to police the local AdMech?
>>747919The Nesties have stood by us in peril and in peace, there is only one hornourable course of action here, Hi
>>747891>Retrieving data... Assessing request... That is a reasonable proposal, warrior. Styrian Triarchy is designated as medium-level long term threat, so we would provide you with help if you would decide to move against that. Our brothers at Nestorium will also be instructed to help you. My archives suggest that they are near the top from the 211 Forge Worlds that are expected to stand trial for unorthodoxy. I understand your concerns, however be advised that they are not heretics and for now seem to be acting in accordance with Mechanicum and Imperial laws, so please don't be too prejudiced against them until court decides otherwise. If it does however, it might be my turn to ask your Chapter for help regarding them. Please contact me when you will need my help.He provides you with access details, now you can reach him by sending a soulword or through Mechanicus temples.+++Shall we end the session here tonight?
>>747935noorder 3 LS storm.Review info on Kruun, can we descend in orbit undetected (preferably in their no-mans-land)send strongback near kruun to scout its long range status, but return undetected if possibleWhat about the eterny purity, is she done with the rescue/factfinding of the wreckage of the convoy?
>>747935>I understand your concerns, however be advised that they are not heretics and for now seem to be acting in accordance with Mechanicum and Imperial laws, so please don't be too prejudiced against them until court decides otherwise.

Please contact me when you will need my help."By the nature of our duties we are of course required to work with Nestorium. My own assessment is that they are acting in accordance with doctrinal laws. However I am keeping an eye on their activities to ensure it stays that way. I must also mention that the local ecclesiarchy, under the Iron Monks faction, has shown a very large amount of hostility to the adeptus mechanicus and nestorium specifically.It may be prudent to remind them that it is not their place to police the adeptus mechanicus. Of course I would recommend such a reminder be somewhat passive, we do not want the Iron Monks to act irrationally. Merely remember their place.I am also aware that Mars is home to the finest manufacturing facilities in the galaxy. Might I ask if you have land raiders and thunderhawks available?"++++Can end soon if you wish skg.
>>747956>However I am keeping an eye on their activities to ensure it stays that wayChange that to"I am aware of concerns held against them."
>>747944Ok, I'll bite.3 LS Storm = remove 24W from your treasury. They will be ready next year, so you can add them immediately, just don't deploy them yet.+++Kruun mission - I will require Operation type info sheet to answer you this, tell me how many troops, who commands, what are their goals, etc etc.+++Eternal Purity will be resolved at the end of the year, it's in my notes.>>747956>We have received no registered complaints by Ecclesiarchy in that Sector, but it's not unheard of. An investigative team will be sent to look into the matter, but thank you for bringing our attention to this. And yes, Mars obviously has both Land Raiders and Thunderhawks in high supply as we provide more than half of all Chapter with their combat gear. My records show that you are not registered as having ordered anything from our foundries. Would you like to add us as potential manufacturing partner? While it would take longer for you to wait for items to arrive from Mars, I can assure you that there is no other Forge World with selection such as ours.+++Thanks for playing, next session is planned for next week Wednesday/Thursday as I am leaving in a few days for a short holiday. There's a chance of session this Wednesday, but don't wait for me if I don't show up by 9-10 PM in the chat.
>>747991>Would you like to add us as potential manufacturing partner? While it would take longer for you to wait for items to arrive from Mars, I can assure you that there is no other Forge World with selection such as ours.Hell yeh dude!Thanks skaaaaarg!
>>747991>An investigative team will be sent to look into the matterWith respect, my lord, I worry that a physical presence may appear too much like intimidation. The Iron Monks have occasionally perhaps pushed the bounds of their authority but they are vital in keeping the sector together. I do not wish them to feel like they are under attack.
>>747935I know I might be a bit late for the party, but would it be okay to put in a good word for the Nestorians? Just the truth; that they were invaluable in recovering this STC, and making the chapter capable to use it at all.And if the others agree; more STC might follow with time.
