Welcome to the 41st Millenium Empty
PostSubject: Welcome to the 41st Millenium   Welcome to the 41st Millenium Icon_minitimeWed Jan 18, 2012 10:02 am

within this thread I and my assembled compatriots will tell you tales of the Grim-Dark far future, set in the universe of Games Workshop's own "Warhammer 40,000" setting. The characters will star as Acolytes in the service of an Imperial Inquisitor, working for the good of the Imperium of Man, while trying to keep their pulses high, and their souls clean from the manifold paths to damnation that face not only our Protagonists, but in truth, the Entirety of all mankind.

the infamous tagline used to introduce the series in its forms sums it up rather well;

"Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods."

...dispensing with theatrics, what this thread will entail is a...Storyboarded Chronicle of our events at the tabletop playing "Dark Heresy" a Tabletop Role-Playing game that will likely be most familiar to those who've dabbled in "Dungeons & Dragons" in order to add a sort of "Home Content" for the site. the purpose of this is Twofold

1. To give the uninitiated a chance to experience a TableTop Roleplaying Game (IMO one of the pieces of gaming medium sadly lost to the mainstream in light of Videogames)
2. To give the site a taste of the kinds of Brutal exchanges common in the world of Warhammer 40K, through the eyes of a pair of characters adventuring within it.

Mind you, please refrain from replying in this thread unless you're actually a player, so that the narrative remains unbroken by commentary, If you at some point wish to Join the group, please PM me on this site and i will reply with the requirements you'll need to meet in order to join.

the roles so distributed are as follows

Tenrowsei - Game Master

JunoVega - Player
Doribi XrX - Player

OOC: MayKimSCREAM assured me that this particular topic would be pinned, and that would be much appreciated, as the posts to update this particular thread will likely be few.

Details had been been sent plane-tside via the astropath network. Inquisitor Praetus Zarkov has requested A number of tasks of his acolytes in his personal cipher. The first of which regarded armaments; a local arms dealer had offered to arm the acolytes at a discount in efforts to pay Inquisitor Zarkov back. The second of the tasks the acolytes were faced with lay with the floatilla currently emerging from the warp and several years off from any of their planetary stops, the perfect chance for the inquisition to launch a covert investigation.

The encoded transmission detailed their mission and what was at stake. The flotilla was playing host to a rogue trader vessel for a five year stint where wares could be sold and the luxuries of the imperium could once more be lavished on him. Apparently Inquisitor Zarkov was offering this mission on behalf of another inquisitor, of the ordo Xenos involving a number of dangerous Xenos equipment, but due to serious circumstances, his own forces were all preoccupied.

In short, the acolytes had to investigate the cargo and either inform the inquisition of heresy or dismiss the claims altogether.

Information was forwarded either by direct astropathic messages or delivered via data-slates by local couriers.

The information listed as follows
The rogue trader's name was Cortez, his ship The hope of Beyond
The Hope of Beyond; a large ship able to house a private army as well as decades of static cargo. Crew numbered in the thousands.
Aboard the ship is a single salamander space marine.
A squad of lizard like Xenos, deemed no threat to the imperium.

The flotila was known to be hostile to their own, forming gangs and ruling over a number of ships as local law enforcement.
The center ship, inhabited by the adeptus mechanicus, was off limits to the general population and it's suggested that the acolytes try their best not to deal with the machine god worshipers unless absolutely necessary.

A local informant for the Inquisition would meet their transport ship and went by the name 'stub'
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Adeptus machanicus- people worshiping and replacing parts of their bodies with machines.
rogue trader- offered a charter to make them deal with anything outside of the imperium as they see fit.
ordo xenos- an order of the inquisition dealing with aliens
ordo hereticus- the player characters branch of the inquisition, dealing with heresy.
