Welcome to the latest incarnation of Inspiration Friday. I have been granted the blessings of the four Infernal Powers (Excessus, Flint13, Forte and Insane Psychopath) to continue this endeavour. I hereby swear a dark oath that I will strive to continue the good work started by Brother Nihm and Tenebris.



Inspiration Friday is a chance for members to write pieces of fiction on set Chaos-related subjects, with a winner chosen at the end of each period and awarded a medal. As in the previous Inspiration Fridays, images are also most welcome.

While previous incarnations were strictly weekly, I may give two weeks to work on some themes. I should also point out that, living in Tokyo, my Fridays start earlier than many of the Frater and so likely I will close and open themes on Saturdays, Tokyo-time. Likely still Friday for most of you.

While each topic will close (with respect to who can win the medal for that theme) after a set period, members who find themselves inspired to write about previous themes are most welcome to post these as and when they can, but I ask that you please title your entry accordingly (e.g. “Chaos Warship”).





Now, to kick off Inspiration Friday once more:

Interview with a Warpsmith

"Shackle the soul and forge the flesh. Bind the machine and butcher the rest.” - Codex Chaos Space Marines

We have had Interview with a Chaos Lord and Interview with a Chaos Sorcerer. I now ask you to turn your attention to the technological wizards of your war bands (be they warpsmiths, traitor techmarines, Dark Mechanicus enginseers/Magos, etc.) and tell us all about them. When and how they fell, how they reacted to no longer being shackled to the doctrine of Mars, and how they cope with being cut off from the supplies they once had. What fell new technologies they devised in their curious lairs. How they view (and are viewed by) their comrades and how they view the daemons the incorporate into their infernal contraptions. Their successes, their goals and their failings.

And if you have images (be they of minis or art) by all means post these too.



Please have your entries in by Friday the 10th of July.

In us burns a fire for vengeance that will only be quenched when we stand triumphant over the smoldering ruins of Terra. Our laughter on that day will haunt their survivors till the end of time. We will stride forth victorious through the shattered gates of their fortress, holding high aloft the defiled corpse of their rotting god as our prize.

Thanks, I had a friend growing up who had a vicious little pet ferret, I figured that something similar belonged on a Chaos Warship. :)

And here ends the first challenge of the new Inspiration Friday. My thanks to Excessus and Carrack for their excellent entries. I particularly liked Excessus’s ends-justify-the-means inquisitor and his use of blood when ink ran out. And the fate which befell him, of course. It made me think of Lovecraft crossed with Event Horizon.

But I have chosen Carrack’s Chain Maker as the winner of this week’s Inspiration Friday. It fulfilled the brief perfectly: telling us of the Warpsmith’s past, his fall, his new ethos (The Three Forms. An excellent idea), creations, where he works and how his aims outweigh his fraternal ties.
Step forward, Carrack and claim your reward!
gallery_63428_7083_6894.png

And, as reward for your winning Challenge The Traitors II, Carrack has the honour of setting the next Inspiration Friday challenge...

ETL Background Challenge. Write a background piece on one of the Chaos models you created for this year’s ETL. You can write a brief history of the model and its role in your forces, or a memorable battle or event that this model played a pivotal role.

Alternate challenge 1. If you are for some lame reason, siding with the loyalist this ETL, write about the models first, recent, or most memorable encounter with the forces of Chaos.

Alternate challenge 2. If you are not participating in this year's ETL, write something similar about a recent model you have finished.

Feel free to include pictures of the model you are using.


The challenge runs until the 17th of July.
Let us be inspired...

bugger. so many characters, so many ideas...

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the centre of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

This week's challenge was a difficult one to judge, every entry was well written. I am tempted to declare a tie where everyone wins, but we don't share in the Eye of Terror. So as guest judge for this event, I declare Kierdale the winner. "The Laughter of the Mad" captured in words, the spirit of his horridly grotesque spawn. Plus, "Kill it with fire!" Step forth and claim your prize.

My thanks to everyone for this week's great entries, to Carrack for providing last week’s challenge...and for choosing my entry! A pleasant surprise!
SlaveToDarkness please do get your written and post it anyway. I want to read it!


Here begins the next challenge...
The lair of the Infernal Powers.

- Only the strongest, the bravest, perhaps the most insane or the most genius venture into the domain of a God of Chaos. Be it the leader of your war band or another member with great ambition, tell us of this individual/group’s quest into the lair of one of the four Infernal Powers: the Fortress of Khorne, the Garden of Nurgle, the Maze of Tzeentch or the Palace of Slaanesh. Were they invited or did they force their way in? To what aim? And were they successful?

Alternatively simply describe (a part or the whole of) the Fortress/Garden/Maze/Palace for us.




The challenge runs until the 31st of July.

Let us be inspired...

This didn't flow too easily and I'll probably consider it `apocryphal` when it comes to the Psychopomps. The elements I wanted to put in are there, but the juices didn't quite flow right biggrin.png
