Brothers, I bring sad tidings from the Rock. Those pointy-eared maggots had attacked it and the damage they inflicted was substantial, but the combined might of the Dark Angels and several of its successors saw those arrogant pirates back to whatever hell they came from. The Techmarines have inspected the damaged area and realized that the library containing the lists of all the Successors of the Lion had been destroyed.
Brothers, the register of successor will need to be rebuilt. You are being tasked with delving into your own personal archives and scribing a datafile of a successor or written account of the Unforgiven’s exploits across the galaxy.
- CREATE YOUR OWN SUCCESSOR
Write up a datafile, Index Astartes or Imperial Armor article about an Unforgiven Successor. Templates have been provided by Brother Tyler HERE OR use this template below:
Chapter Name (include a painted marine or picture from SM painter)
- Include Founding if it is known
- What made that Chapter come into being
- Are they a Successor of a Successor?
- Notable Characters
- Notable Battles
- Narrative about the Chapter at the dawn of the 41st Millennium
- Are they hunters of the Fallen? Do they even know about the Fallen?
Home World or Fleet based
- Description of the planet that they are based
- Can include any rituals
- Deathwing & Ravenwing in use?
- Armor Heavy?
- Inner Circle?
- Color schemes
Dark Angels, Obviously!
"Poke 'em in the eye!"
"Repent! For tomorrow you die!"
Bonuses for extra artwork and banners
- WRITE A STORY ABOUT THE UNFORGIVEN
Write up a complete narrative about the great deeds of the Unforgiven. As above there will be bonuses for additional artwork, but it will not be required.
All stories are to be submitted by the end of May. They can be submitted in one of three ways.
1. Post a link in this thread to your story topic. Finished story is to be in the 1st Post.
2. PM them to Grand Master Belial.
3. E-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submitted stories and datafiles will be submitted to the Fortress of the Unforgiven website as well as being added to the Librarium
+SERVICE & SUPPORT+
I will be answering all your questions that you all may have and any FAQ’s will be posted in this thread. Select members of the Inner Circle will do judging of the articles. The Shadow Guard has generously donated 4 prizes that will be awarded as follows:
- Most Unique (an idea(s) that has not been brought up before)
- Most Thorough (depth and elaborately written)
- Most Zany (a Fun/comedic successor to counter the somber motif)
- Most Artistic (an artwork based one)
The other members of the Inner Circle will be around to provide support and to help out. The Chaplains have been asked to sheathe their Blades of Reason in favor of the rubber Thunder Hammers and silly-string flamers.
Here are some of the prior works located on the Fortress Website.
I have taken on the Iron Halo of Responsibility for this competition but Moderators still have full control of the Meltas, Airlocks and Cell Block 42.
As a Lexicanium, I will modify the files slightly for inclusion in the Librarium once it is back in operation. You did the hard part of writing it. I will honor you by making it ready for the Librarium.
