Will update tomorrow, just got delayed due to the holiday weekend.

This is also the last call for Firesight and Waci. Any of them who don't post before I update tomorrow is dying in a hail of gun fire.

Sorry, I thought we were supposed to go in turn order. Since I was almost last in the list, I thought the baddies would get another turn before I could act.

Since that is 2d10+7 Pen:10 I assumed you'd want to Infamy re-roll, and I did, which allowed you to pass, to Rodan uses one infamy (unless you'd rather take the hit).

Unless you gave us back Infamy after that last fight, I haven't got any to spend, so

e: because I'm sure as hell not bothering with burning infamy on a starting xp character, let alone one with a mediocre gimmick and a bad mutation

I'll say infamy refreshed after you got the apostate, since the damage roll was 23 before toughness, and one shots are a dick move.

Though in the future, consider alternatives to charging the guy with the plasma pistol.

I don't really know if it's that or if I'm just chafing at the general shittiness of trying to do something unconventional with a starting XP character. I'll give it a little more time before I throw in the towel.

We'll I think the plus side of it is it gives you something to grow into. Someday you will be a stealthy psychic murder both, only whispered of out of fear that even saying Rodan will summon forth your wrath.

Also, if your character is going to be a stealth bastard, play him that way. I'll let players try and stealth around the battlefield and give you or anyone else the +30 surprised bonus if you attack from a hidden position.

Just in case you were all wondering, between a conference requiring an overnight stay and family coming into town, my posting will be spotty to non-existent Wednesday until next Monday.

I wanted to try and get an update in before tomorrow, but it didn't happen. Posting will resume next week. i might just handwave the rest of this fight and move us on. I don't want to spend too much time on this Nurgle cult thing; I just wanted to have you all work one something resembling Inquisition work before throwing you into the morally questionable leading to fall to chaos stuff.

Just to adjudicate something before it actually comes up:

Part of my Warp Vortex power forces anyone inside the PR radius to make a +0 Agility test if they want to move out of the vortex. This happens regardless of whether or not they've failed the Toughness test that drags them in deeper. Chaos Spawn have plenty of Toughness, so I don't expect them to get drawn in. On the other hand, they have miserable Agility. So as it stands, I can easily conjure up a cute little gravitational anomaly that has a solid chance of utterly crippling one (or even both if they're close together or I Push the power), because it'd be rolling against like 22 to escape. And if it does, I can make a new Vortex on the next turn, it's not hard to cast.

Are you down with that, Werix, or would you call that mechanics abuse?

I gotta say, for a power you can get for 200xp, this thing offers a lot of potential fuckery. Definitely don't regret investing in this one.

Reason #1285 why as a GM I hate psykers. I guess at its core I have nothing wrong with it. It would be no different than one of you lighting these fuckers on fire with a flamer. If you did that it likely would never get itself put out, and given that, every time it wouldn't pass a willpower test it would run around on fire, unless I house rule something like From Beyond or Stuff of nightmares makes it immune to fire tests.

I'm not going to have the two next to each other, so you wont be able to get both of them in one gravity well. Seeing as these are creatures of the warp, they might be drawn to someone sustaining psychic powers. To put it another way, thing of aggro in terms of an MMO.

What I'm saying is If you're going with RAW, I have ways around that. You can become priority target while sustaining it, the Khorne spawn might suddenly negate psychic powers, etc. Or given your track record you'll just roll perils and become a third spawn.

Well, gosh, thank goodness the character I'm ditching didn't become marginally more worthless before I could ditch him, that'd just break my heart.

Also I dunno, do you want me to basically double-post going around and trying to recruit the other people, or should I give Firesight a chance?

If you want to go ahead and talk to everyone, recruiting them or not, go ahead. I dragged firesight into it just to see if it would get him to post more. No such luck it seems.

(I was just trying to create the atmosphere of an overgrown hive and didn't think about the logistics of how the spawn were being brought down. A path cut through the growth wouldn't have been that atmospheric.)

Only way to find out is to reject the daemons offer and continue on with your boss. Since she is heading up there, where all will be explained.

Or run away back to the ship with your daemon host as fugitives who killed your Inquisitor.

Never said this wasn't an option.

e: I've just said in the past that if you go for the daemonhost Whitehall would likely join in defending it based out of her loyalty to Banca.

Do also keep in mind that this is a black crusade game, at some point you will be fleeing imperial space to be the new kids on the block in the vortex.

I'm surprised at how level headed and not corrupt you've all been so far.

Yeah, I did a bad job at making your Inquisitor be a really bad lady. And that was intentional. I wanted the fall of your characters to be more subtle. Plus if your inquisitor was radical and you all are radical, and the daemonhost is a tool, I couldn't have created the conflict you're currently facing.

At 12 corruption, due a mutation.

I'd ask if we mutate before or after XP spend, but it seems a little early in Tess' fall to get down with the Grandfather enough to align, so I'll pick up some Unaligned goodies and wait for 20. So that's an unaligned roll, up or down 2.

EDIT: Also, since you asked for XP Xpenditure, I went with Resistance:Fear, Inspire, and Mind Link. We're a team now, yay!

I guess I will leave that up to the players on if they want it before or after EXP spending. Basically ill look at your sheet once you post 'I'm at the mutation threshold" so if you want it to be post EXP, change your sheet and then tell me you passed a the threshold.

I'll just post your rolls here.

First roll: 100! So that will be 98-02 for choices of warpsight, wreathed in chaos, or addiction.
Second roll: 87, so a range of 85-89 so strange walk or tail.
