"For the Emperor."

There was a terrible noise.
There was a terrible silence.





You are an Acolyte in the service of the Emperor’s Inquisition. You stand in the front line of a great and secret war where your duty is to hunt out the foul stench of heresy, the vile alien, and the twisted influence of Chaos. You will tread where others fear, venturing to different planets, ancient space hulks and the unsavory depths of the hive cities.

You will never know fame or reward, yet if you stand resolute your deeds will be whispered to the God-Emperor of Mankind and your name will be revered for millennia.

You act like Lowell doesn't have a master list of every little bit of foreshadowing and convenient narrative mapped out on a wall using multicolored string. He's like a spider weaving a web of deceit and misdirection. In other words, Tzeentch.

Arkanomen posted:

Also this a vote to install two commentary mechadendrites that permanently run a mocking commentary on what's happening.

:"Maybe Ohone should join the lord of change."
: "Why would we join up with chaos?"
:"Then when we walk into another trap we could say it was part of the plan!"
: " Dohohohoh"

Arkanomen posted:

Limosa: "Ohone is a terrible and calculating lordsire that weaves in and out of her shadow programs and I rule at her bequest and live at her insistence. Her plots are deep and as mysterious as a machine spirit"

Ohone: "Goddam I love my husband and his cute little hat! Purge the dregs while I slam my dick repeatedly in a warp breech door and guzzle the AI heresy kool aid. Whoops is that a nuke?! Yeeeeehaawwww check out these gams!"

poor life choice posted:

I can't tell if voters are trying to break the thread or you broke the voters. Everything is a warp trap, except for certain death, which is a good and cool decision.

Outrail posted:

As the nukes drop and life as we know it starts to burn off we see Lowell smearing on some sunscreen "Probably got time for one, no let's make it two more arcs."

VanSandman posted:

Quit trying to get us to blow up the sun!

I should have asked for two actionable plans. Maybe blow up the sun would've been left off the table.

Arkanomen posted:

Its funnier when you realize that all that drama, human suffering, population manipulation is all just a box for Elanora to check and stemmed from Ohone having the stray thought "Man we need some more troops."

Karia posted:

Oh god my idea is going so terribly. I really feel like part of the thread now.



We are a Tech Priest in the year 40,000 (ish). A ninety second summary can be found here. Our job as an Acolyte of the Inquisition is to find xeno-traitors, heretics, and daemon cults, and crush them/tell them to our boss so he can to crush them. This is further complicated by the fact that our Family is the hereditary owners of a Rogue Trader ship, making us minor aristocrats whose job is to explore the unknown and bring back technology, lore, and xeno plunder. Our Tech Priest is going to have to manage the delicate balance of supporting our Family while also supporting the Inquisition, knowing that a misstep will get us spaced or sent to the pyres. This doesn't even include our official enemies, being slavering xenos, ruthless heretics, and soul-eating daemons.

As a Tech Priest, we are a member of a religious monopoly on technology, which means we get to know all knowledge of the humanity, but we are restrained by religious sins such as “innovation” and “heretek”. Our religious order wants us to discover all the knowledge that has been lost over the millennia, but only do so in an orthodox way. Between the Inquisition, your Family, and your obedience to the Tech Priests, you will almost certainly be betraying someone in short order.

Good luck.

Google doc here (most recent first) or you can read the posts individually below. I usually hang out in Discord if you want to chat about the game. If you get overwhelmed by the characters, a list is here. Player editable.

The official timeline (as you know it) is here. It contains lies.



The First Letter posted:

Dear Sir/Madam
After extensive surveillance and rigorous psychological testing you were not aware was occurring, you have passed the first stage of tests for Acolyte of the Inquisition. Due to your lack of emotional involvement/recent loss with your friends/family, you have been selected for further processing. Although it is regrettable that you are unloved/alone in the world, you will be happy to know you now offer your life in service to a higher calling. Please fill out this form and return it where you found it. Be aware that ignoring or destroying this form is Treason against the Imperium, and will be persecuted by the Inquisition as such.

Is your gender:

A) Male
B) Female

On what world did this form reach you:

1) Feral World
2) Hive World
3) Imperial World
4) Void Born
5) Death World
6) Forge World
7) Fortress World
8) Shrine World
9) Penal World
10) Scholar Progenium
11) Noble World
12) Other

Addendum: Even if you do not think this form is for you, it is in fact for you. The Inquisition’s Agents are everywhere. If your family have not suffered recent death due to xenos/heresy/the Great Enemy/natural or manmade disaster, rest assured you are in fact unloved, and meet the selection requirements. If you think you have friends, they are lying to you.

In the God-Emperor's Name, Inquisitor Kozilek

apologizing in advance for sperging in your thread LowellDND

Sperg is good! Im still working on getting system mastery on all these books. Knowing where to look is helpful.

Im kind of expecting us to go Radical right out of the gate, and if I can keep people's attention, Im totally stapling on Ascension and Rogue Trader.

When I checked this morning, tech-priest was winning, so I looked up a bunch of things like Malygrisian Tech Heresy. I guess my next project is reading the Psyker rules, unless you can persuade the thread to love the Omnissiah.

Dark Heresy uses the double unlock system for advancement, by which you choose a specialty for your level, and then spend XP on buying talents and skills within that level. Psyker has more options on each tier, but also has a much higher likelihood of head exploding. Additionally, it looks like we can start unlocking Psyker powers as a Tech Priest after 6.

Basically, if we want to play the long game, slow is smooth, survive and win, Tech Priest looks better, while if we want to burn out in a blaze of glory while thousands around us erupt in daemons, probably killing us before get max level, we want Psyker.

If you hit 100 you become an insane daemon mutant and I have to look up the Black Crusade rules as you swear to bring down the Corpse-Emperor from his Throne on Terra.

Prior to that, you slowly mutate or gain derangments, some of which are more concealable than others.

Since it looks like it will be Tech Priest, we should totally be a Cyber Mastiff handler for our first rank, from Book of Judgement.

Added that and a few others to the Tech Priest options. Another one at level 1 is from Lathe Worlds - Factor of the Lathes, which is more of a diplomatic Tech-Priest.

And the Tech Priests have it!

Im going to go ahead and assume the thread wants Cyber Mastiff, since we’re already seeing rocking pictures and caps lock for it. Now, for the next set of choices!
As a basic Tech Priest, you get

Tech Use (Int)
Secret Tongue (Tech) (Int)

Melee Weapons (Primitive)
Basic Weapons Training (Las)
Pistol Training (Las)
Electro Graft Use
Mechanicus Implants
- Electro Graft
- Electoo Inductors
- Respirator Unit
- Cyber Mantle
- Potentia Coil
- Cranial Circuitry
Constructor Interface Augmentic

Metal Staff
Las Pistol and 1 charge pack
Las Carbine and 1 charge pack
Knife
Flak Vest
Glow Lamp
Data Slate
Mechanicus Robes and Vestements (Good Quality)
9 spare parts (power cells, wires, chronometers, etc)
Vial of Sacred Machine Oil
Bloud hound Cyber Mastiff

You have 400 xp to work with. I listed all the backgrounds which you qualify for that I am aware of. For purposes of RP, we’re assuming the Inquisitor will not light you on fire for Warp Touched, and also not revealing if he’s a Radical or Puritan. We’re just continuing the survey motif.

Please acknowledge what form of training you have gone through this far.

Do not think of failing this test, for failure in front of the Inquisition is failure in front of the God-Emperor himself.

Let's go with a standardish techpriest for now. There will be plenty of opportunity to gain glances at forbidden techthingies in exchange for corruption and insanity points. Why waste them now with so little to gain in return?

If you wouldn't mind throwing out some clarifying poo poo as we go along as to what these things are for the lurkers, that would be great, but obviously not expected.

Thanks for making the thread, lowellDND. Good luck!

Oh, this will be fun. Looks like we're already getting our Radical v Puritan factions.

Have some Eisenhorn: "We all become radicals eventually as we appreciate that we must know our enemy in order to defeat him. The real dangers come from extreme puritans. Puritanism is fuelled by ignorance, and ignorance is the greatest peril of all. That's not to suggest the path of the radical is easy. Eventually even the most careful and responsible radical will be overwhelmed by the warp. The real judge of character is what good a man can do for the Imperium before he is drawn too far.""

All I'm saying is: with high IQ, immunity to fear and madness and a susceptibility to corruption, what could possibly go wrong?

As an aside, Warp Touched gives you From Beyond, which gives you immunity to insanity.

So all you need to worry about is corruption

On the flip side, someone want to link me to Scarlet Ember/what book its from? It looks like a 300XP background or talent, but I don't know anything else about it.

This sounds good, but switch Technomat to another trade. I'm sorry I don't have any ideas of a good trade, I haven't ever played this game before.

Options that might fit our character include

Armourer: Used to create and maintain armour and weapons.

Copyist: Used to swiftly copy text, illuminate manuscripts and forge written material.

Embalmer: Used to prepare and preserve corpses.

Miner: Used to extract minerals, maintain mines and identify common hazards.

Prospector: Used to find and identify valuable materials.

Scrimshawer: Used to inscribe patterns, text and imagery onto materials.

Smith: Used to forge metals into shape.

Technomat: Used to maintain mechanical and tech items, often without any understanding of a machine’s true purpose.

Wright: Used to assess, design and construct buildings, vehicles and the like.

and a basic tech priest gets a choice of Scrimshawer and Copyist.

Dear Sir/Madam

You have passed all the required tests with the speed and ability we have come to expect from new Acolytes of the Inquisition. Congratulations. Your first orders are to board the Rogue Trader Ship Beast of Trall. From there, you will spend several years (estimates include five to ten) acting in the service of the Inquisition, ever watchful for signs of Xenos, Heresy, or the Great Enemy.

From there, you will make reports to this Astropathic location (see attached), and will receive logistical support as the Inquisition deems fit and necessary. If you are without support, you are encouraged to use your own discretion in the fight against the Imperium’s enemies - but remember you are not an Inquisitor, and must remain within its laws.

The ship leaves in approximately four hours. You needn’t worry about notifying your chain of command, your domicile, family, or next of kin - we here at the Inquisition have already taken care of it for you, and there will be no legal, emotional, or financial repercussions for obeying the needs of the Inquisition.

Good Luck.

In the Emperor’s Name, Inquisitor Kozilek

A) Well, thats not a good sign. You were born on the Beast of Trall, and the officers are composed exclusively of your Family. You’ve never observed any signs of traitors of heresy, and you know this ship like the back of your hand. It’s best if you warn your Lord-Sire, the Captain of the Ship and Bearer of the Trader’s Warrant. He’ll know what to do.

B) If you’ve been selected as an Acolyte on this ship, that means someone you know! Maybe your own Family! Could be consorting with the enemy. You should consult with the Ecclesiarchy for guidance. Perhaps they can guide you in the right direction, now that even your Family may have joined with darkness.

C) … That would explain a lot, actually. You always thought the whole lot of them were a bit off, and you say that as a void born. You are going to keep this very close to your chest, and begin your own investigation privately. As a noble, you have an excellent source of funds, and the belly of the Beast of Trall is swarming with merchants.

D) You need spiritual guidance, yes, but from His aspect as Omnissiah. You will speak with the Machine Cult in the aft of the ship where they maintain the holy engines. There is been a Magos there for as long as you can remember, and his teachings have spoken to you throughout your life.

E) This was a terrible idea and no mistake. Joining the Inquisition when the investigation is your own Family and their ship? This was spam mail to be ignored in the first place, and you don’t know why you filled it out. Best if you just destroy the material quietly, with no one the wiser.

F) Other

-

These choices will also let me know the direction you want this character to go. Is she devoted to her family, perhaps a favorite of the Patriarch? Does she draw her strength from the Church and the Imperial Cult? Or is she more jaded and paranoid by her years spent off ship? Alternately, does she want to be left alone?

For full disclosure, I wouldnt put a suicide option in the thread (unless you guys want to 1v1 a bloodthirsty or something). So an Inquistor won't kill you if you choose E, but there will be ... complications.

Well, we should probably get some evidence first. Although, there's no reason the evidence has to be real. Well, actually real evidence would be preferable considering there are probably some really nasty consequences for faking evidence.

Judging by the numbers, you only need to persuade 3 people to go from CALL NOW to COLLECT/FAKE SOME PROOF

and your family *is* tainted, so theres prolly some credence to you thinking there is some guilt there.

Adjusted accordingly. That changes the tone a bit, originally I got the impression you were calling in at the first Astropath.

Writing up some evidence, being slow, and keeping to yourself is a slightly different approach, although I dig the Paranoia game play.
