+Intro+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.+Briefing+Chapter Chronicles and starting point for the novice initiates:http://chapterquest.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_Quest_WikiDatalogs from the previous thread:>>1618862Battle voxcaster frequency, all allies are welcome to join:https://client02.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23RisingSons&server=irc.Rizon.net+Forgiveness is a sin.+
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>1657430Rolling threadluck
When you finally meet Cagirates, he seems to be a bit sad, but also relieved to finally be back at the Chapter. He starts speaking almost immediately, with little need for Renard to prompt him. Chapter Master for now stays in the shadow, listening.>Well, it’s a long story, but I’ll try to keep it short. When we first arrived to the Ursus’ Palace, everything was great. Maybe a bit boring, but great. We had a chance to socialise with Imperial nobility – tell them about the Chapter and our exploits, raise our profile, while doing an honourable duty to safeguard the Governor. However over time things started turning sour. We received more and more orders and they started becoming more and more strict. While it wasn’t anything special, I realise now that Ursus was trying to establish his direct personal control over us. Unfortunately, I failed in my duties as the Leutenant and the leader of my men and ended up following his lead without seeing through his guile, I didn't want to dishonor the Chapter as we are his vassals after all. Honour Guard was ever more restricted until we could no longer show ourselves in public, unless under official business and in the company of people that Lord Governor approved of. Just around that time Lusmer fell for that witch, Anastasia Belladon, thrice be cursed her name. She was a common visitor at Ursus’ court and she put my brother under some sort of charm. After receiving unofficial approval from the Governor he even asked for your permission to marry her, from what I recall, but you refused. I was relieved for a while, but then she started visiting our quarters more often, setting a precedent. Then she started coming with her friends, ladies of the court. I protested, but I was told by the Governor that from now on we will be following principles of equality among his Honour Guard and I shouldn’t be directly ordering my men around. I was furious, but then he insisted that I have a chat with Anastasia and I… Changed my mind. I still cannot understand it, but that’s how it was. From time to time I would get the idea to contact the Chapter Master and let him know about my worries, but there would always be that voice at the back of my mind telling me that I was just being paranoid. This strange feeling, it came and went. Sometimes I could see more clearly, at others I was completely lost in the mist. I tried to get to the astropaths at least a dozen times, but every time either I would be called back for an urgent meeting or there would be a long queue or something else happened that prevented me from contacting you directly.
>>1657448>Also our character changed. Lord Governor asked us to change the colour of our armour, just for this one occasion that he had planned – a special event. A month later he asked it again. And then once more in a couple of weeks. Then he suggested that we should keep our armour in his colours constantly because there will be more events and he wants us to look presentable. He awarded us with luxury, prestige and granted every one of us a personal engraved ring… And the ladies… Soon we all had one. Yes, even I did. I am not really sure how that happened. It’s all covered in a pink mist, it was an exciting time. Gabriella was lovely, I truly cared for her and she did for me. And despite everything, I constantly had this feeling that something is not right, despite the fact that everything was wonderful. I remember trying to warn you secretly when Chapter Master visited us. But it seems my warning went unheeded. The turning point for me was... Well, a few months ago, Gabriella died. She had an accident. I was stricken to the depths of my soul, for I have never shared such a deep bond with anyone apart from my brothers and this bond was of a different nature than just brotherhood. It affected me so much, that when Governor presented me with another lady just a while later, I flew into a fit of rage and grabbed her. She got scarred and then she resisted and actually hurt me (he shows a burnt left hand), I now realise that she must have been a psyker. This only fuelled my fury and I grabbed her by the head, like a doll, and threw her out of the spire's balcony. All of my old paranoid thoughts came back rushing at once and I decided that I need to run. I set up guard duty schedules to give me as much time as I could and I escaped into the underhive, hoping to remain undetected and alert someone. Then you came. That's my story, Renard.
>>1657448>>1657453>Ursus has been pimping the honour guard out to a gang of noble witchesIs Anastasia Belladon sanctioned at all? Or any of the girls' Cagirates' mentions? Are they all rogue psykers? How the hell could there be so many gone undiscovered? Especially one as prominent as Anastasia?Do any of the witches match the description of the one who tried to assassinate Hagen on Kinteros?Have Trianon and Laptus check over Cagirates mind and body for any corruption, make sure he's telling the truth.
>>1657453needless to say, i want all the names if possible.Then we check if we can capture one for interrogation.
>>1657467>>1657453Also how did Gabriella die?
>>1657453Any events or meetings worth mentioning that Ursus had them be apart of? Or were they just used as status symbols?
>>1657467>>1657453>>1657448DO NOTSUFFERTHE WITCH TO LIVEI think our brothers might be salvagable (with a lot of work and mindreading from our librarians).But seriously we'll need to get some fires ready.
>>1657453One more quick question. How much would it cost to add revenant-tech (inc. noise dampeners etc.) to Xenya's light power armour?
>>1657467>Anastasia BelladonThere are no records of her being a psyker in any archives available to you. Regarding other girls - Cagirates knew them mostly by names and didn't interact with them much. He tries his best to describe them, but even so, you don't really manage to identify any key players of Tachionian politics among them. The fact that they all knew etiquette leads you to suspect that they were either trained very well or they actually are of noble upbringing, even if from the minor families, which number in the thousands.>Please rolld100 for Cagirates corruption>>1657478How do you intend to capture one? It seems that they stay in the palace with the Honour Guard almost at all times.>>1657479>I... I don't know, really. I don't remember it. News were delivered to me by Lusmer and I lost my mind from the sorrow. Maybe I'll remember it once I calm down.>>1657484Honour Guard was used as status symbols. Though Cagirates said that he suspects that Ormius and Hadran were used by the Sector Governor for more than that - he kept those two marines especially close. Whena asked to speculate, Cagirates says that a few nobles from the opposition have died under mysterious circumstances in the last few years.>>1657496Will you ask Nestorian technopriests or do you want this to be done in-house? This would mean dabbling in the techno-heresy even further, but it wouldn't be too expensive, but conversion into human power armour will be slightly problematic because of the smaller frame and weaker power generator.
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>1657511So Ursus has a gaggle of unsanctioned psykers in his court....That should turn some heads.Rolling.>Will you ask Nestorian technopriests or do you want this to be done in-house?

>>1657516Trianon approaches you with an undecipherable face. It seems that our brother has suffered from psychic attack quite recently on the physical plane, that's how his arm got scorched. Effects are merely physical, no taint detected. His mind is a more complicated matter though. There is strong evidence that his psyche was altered psychically or using similar invasive means, however there's nothing conclusive. It is clear that there's no open and active taint within him, but I can't give a full guarantee because of possible taint of the mind.>>1657516>>1657518The cost to produce a single suit of Revenant armour will be 10W and conversion will cost another 2W. That's for in-house production, because Regon commands Nestorium and he might not be too happy about the idea of hasty upgrades to the already semi-heretical designs.>>1657529Roll d100 for Cagirates memory>>1657526Xenya can still be detected by the more highly skilled/trained psykers who will notice the emptiness in her area of the Immaterium, however she will be invisible to most lower level psykers. No, process is too energy intensive to fit a generator of suitable size onto servo skull. However you think that Eldar might have some technology that could make it possible.

Some security measures were added, but as the Honour Guard are expected to protect the Governor himself, not the palace, he wasn't directly involved with any of that. It seems that Larion has installed a new garrison of Imperial Guard stormtroopers at the palace and also invited at least a few techpriests, who have made some unknown technical improvements to the palace.>>1657564I will need a few more votes.

She might have been a fellow to one of our brothers, we didn't see our... companions that often, usually we kept them at our private quarters. i am sorry that I cannot provide you with more information.>>1657681>>1677340Lord Inquisitor Garant replies to your question:>Unfortunately Triarchy is not my area of expertise, however from my encounters with their agents, I can assure you that Styrians are ingenious, especially in their manipulation of the warp. However I have been around Sector Lord Governor many times and not once have I felt or suspected him being a puppet. This would be too vulgar and hard to disguise. I would suspect that some terrible blackmail or more subtle psychological methods are being used to control him if that is the case. However if what you are telling me is true, I would suspect that Larion Ursus might be cooperating willingly. We know that Triarchy is trading with numerous non-Imperial worlds and has a thriving economy, so they might be able to bribe and so influence quite a few important people in Capitolis Sectorum. I would also suspect that they might have a network of spies or possibly even sleeper agents spread out around the Sector.

>>1677526Didn't the scholar guy offer to set up a meeting with her?
>>1677539Yes, yes he did.Maybe we could arrange a 'get together with all ur friends!' or something?Then revenants can kidnap psyker assassin biatch with the help of invisible Xenya and Darrion's Helmet.

Record the data extracted onto a psycrystal for later usage as proof.Then release her back to the party, unaware of what's just happened.

>>1677554We will offer option 3 for the moment, possibly option 4."We will try and gather some more concrete evidence to ease your cogitators before we make a hard agreement my friend."

>>1677602please we need info >>1677525>furthermore enquire about his knowledge of styrian technology, investigation of the recently killed fleet ships etc.

>>1677613can we spend anyfin to make this a 5?pls
>>1677602well apart from >>1677605we really need to talk to hagen before that.tell him what we know about hte first assasination attempt and ursus.the 2nd is a different, if far harder problem.
>>1677615>>1677613Yes, you can, but something unfortunate will happen. Do you agree?+++You hear Laughter in the distance.>>1677605>>1677623Regon is quite happy to share Nestorian limited archives on the current state of the Triarchy. It seems that a lot of what they have is more speculation, than fact, but it seems that Styrian Triarchy has managed to somehow enhance their warp travel. Exact method remains unclear as nothing special was noticed in any of the examined hulks. However possibly capturing one of their ships would lead to more insights.
>>1677627>You hear Laughter in the distance.
>>1677627SighOkay. At this party we need some of Punisher Squad (dressed as nobles/servants) casing the join and looking for the psyker assassin girl.Once ID'd, mebbe have Blinky temporarily disable lights? And in the confusion nab the psyker assassin with the help of Xenya (dressed as noblewoman) & Geron (in plainclothes dressed as Xenya's servant).Quickly pump psyker with some suppression drugs and have Laxenos and Trianon (also in plain clothes having snuck into spire pretending to be random heavy lifter slaves doing bitch work) in back room. Who will psychically interrogate psyker assassin and record all her stuffs onto a psycrystal and onto video when she says it. I want indisputable evidence of her being a rogue psyker, working for/with Ursus and trying to kill Hagen.What do we think?
>>1677644I assume the invitation is for Alderon and maybe a guest or two. How are you going to smuggle in all the staff you need as nobles/guests? Unless skg says otherwise.
>>1677647This is correct. Alderon might push it for up to d3 invitations apart from himself.
>>1677627few questions:-is alderons allegiance to GoR known to her?-how many people will attend?-after we have said alderon what we suspect anastassia of doing, how did he react?-you realize there might be a daemon popping out for reasons?
Rolled 1 (1d3)>>1677649Of course.Does that include servants?
Rolled (1d00)what are we rolling for
>>16776552 invitations. It would be appropriate for gentlement to take a servant and for ladies two, depending on who is going. However servants will have restricted access around the spire and might be asked to stay outside of the main event hall.>>1677653>is alderons allegiance to GoR known to her?Unknown. She knows that he is working as a civil cervant on Varda, so she might suspect something.>how many people will attend?Unknown. Most likely a small gathering, up to 20-30 nobles, among them suspected assassin, most of them will leave soon allowing for family to catch up.>after we have said alderon what we suspect anastassia of doing, how did he react?He is worried that there doesn't seem to be any real evidence, but he's loyal to the chapter and is wiling to help you.
>>1677664>most of them will leave soon allowing for family to catch up.Okay perfect. Have Xenya arrive as the other invitee, a 'Vardan noblewoman'. Geron (masked due to 'disfigurement') can be one of her servants along with a pair of me from Punisher squad for her other servant and Alderon's.Arrive in orbit over Tachion Primaris, ostensibly to ask Sector Lord Ursus how he feels about a reclamation campaign of Kruun.When the psyker assassin leaves to let Alderon and Anastasia catch up, Xenya leaves too with her servants. Waiting outside, hidden, is Laxenos and Trianon. They should be able to instantly sense whether the assassin is a rogue psyker. If so, we have carte blanche to intercept, arrest and teleport out with Punisher Squad also hiding nearby.Then the psyker assassin gets psychically interrogated.Thoughts?
>>1677674My main addition to this would be to make sure the psyker is made unconscious ASAP so there's no self killing and get the =][= involved in the interrogation. That way no one can go "oh it's probably fabricated" or "you just tortured some random noble until they said what you want!" shit.
Rolled 74, 57 = 131 (2d100)>>1677674Noted. Please clarify what are you going to tell Larion Ursus once he grants your request for the audience. He will summon the council to meet with you and discuss reclamation of Kruun. Roll d100 for that.+++Roll d100 for Alderon/Anastasia conversation.+++Roll d100 for infiltrating Laxenos and Trianon.[first roll for counter measures]+++Roll d100 for identifying and intercepting the witch.[second roll for resistance]
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>1677682Rolling witch interception!
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>1677682We will tell Ursus that we need to know the sector government's stance on it and what forces they would commit. Also take the chance to consult Lord Marshal Otto von Pratt and see how badly he wants Kruun back.Rolling for discussion of kruun.
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>1677682>Roll d100 for infiltrating Laxenos and Trianon.well might aswell
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>1677691feck
>>1677688>>1677685>>1677683>>1677694Your plan works as intended, mostly. You are most worried at the very beginning when you get the news that Laxenos and Trianon were almost caught by the guards. However in a moment of inspiration Laxenos created terrifying atmosphere of unease that drove them away and allowed them to enter the spire. Anastasia is pleased to see another Belladon visiting her and they are soon lost in the conversation. Xenya, who is eager to do her best on the first mission, tries to attract as little attention as possible, trying to manage her pariah field and stand out as little as possible. However she noticed that Anastasia politely declined to shake her hand, rather preferring to bow when greeting. Once the other guests started leaving, she saw the woman, who fit the description of the witch from Kinteros that tried to assassinate Tyrel Hagen. She followed her at a distance, but then witch realised that she's being followed and waved a hand at Xenya. An expression of horror disfigured her face when she realised that she's waving at a pariah. Moments later, Trianon and Laxenos appeared, strong drugs (provided by Klementhos) put the psyker to deep slumber. While normally teleportation out of the main spires is hard due to special interference fields, due to the fact that you had time to prepare for this and your ship was in a stable position, they managed to teleport with the hostage directly onboard. She is now shackled to an interrogation table, ready to be squeezed for the information. Xenya, as a pariah, cannot teleport - her nature might disrupt the delicate workings of the device and decides to ex-filtrate using traditional means. Your objectives are met. What do you regarding Alderon? Do you wait for him or leave? Remember with every passing hour the chance that someone will realise that something is wrong is increasing. Remember that kidnapped witch also had servants, so unless you eliminate them as well, they will raise alarm in a few hours if she doesn't appear. If you just want to interrogate her on the ship and then release her without harming her and with her mind altered, it will be complicated. You need to decide:1. Who is primary interrogator?2. How careful you want to be?a) No damageb) No visible damagec) We don't care what happens to her3. How sure you want to be she doesn't remember kidnapping?a) Make subtle changes, she will remember being kidnapped, but nothing clear (quick - 0 hours)b) Erase the incident, hopefully she will not ask questions (medium - 1 hour)c) Erase the whole evening and replace it with false memories (long - 3 hours) d) Make her a vegetable (quick - 0 hours)4. How many hours do you want to interrogate her?a) 2 (no danger)b) 4 (low danger)c) 6 (medium danger)d) 8 (high danger)e) As long as it takes5. What questions do you want to ask? Getting an answer takes about an hour on average, if you want to record it for future use as evidence - two hours.+Session over+
>>1677722>1. Who is primary interrogator?Laxenos, a telepath. With the psychic assistance of Chapter Master, Trianon and his brother Vortigan.2.>b) No visible damageFuck with her mind.3.>c) Erase the whole evening and replace it with false memories (long - 3 hours) Make her seem super drunk and wandered off from her servants and got lost. However this only matters if the next question's aren't answered:4.>a) 4 (no danger)5.>Are you sanctioned?>What is your relationship with Larion or Deidara Ursus?>Did you try to assassinate Lord Admital Tyrel Hagen?As long as the first answer is "No I am a Rogue Psyker." then don't bother giving her back. It'll be time to get the =][= involved and go back to our friend Garant.Agreed?
>>1677733And make sure an SoB is there observing the psyker's ansswers.
>>1677744and SoB can throw in her own questions of course.
>>1677722>>1677733>>1677744>>1677755Scratch the whole thing.Can we confidently say she's not sanctioned without interrogation?
>>1677763She's not sanctioned properly. You can see that her mind is fortified somehow, but she doesn't bear the marks of the usual sanctioning. This is highly unusual and most likely heretical.
