Here is my first entry! Let me know what you think:

 

Terra's Might was a vessel of fantastic size and incredible might. The flagship of the Imperial Fists XXIVth company had seen many battles during the Great Crusade, who could forget it's heroic actions against the greenskins at Gillean IV, and her honors were bestowed upon her bows. Great murals of battles, heroes, and the glorious Emperor of Mankind stood as giants amongst the endless void of space. It was impressive. Halan, so inspired by the work of the remembrancers, had decided to make his own mark on the masterpiece.

 

The Night Lord's dreadclaws landed in a circle around the halo above the Emperor's head. Activating their melta-cutters, the midnight clad ships danced, cutting a large hole in the side of the beautiful ship. Bodies struggled, then went slowly limp as they were overtaken by the void. The Terror Squads poured into the ship. After three hours of bloody battle, things were looking bleak. The combat shields of the few remaining breacher squads were blocking off the bridge. Harlan was perturbed. His men had taken the engine room, so he would destroy the ship. But, the Captain would not be happy with his work. He reached out with a blood-red gauntlet to activate a portal to the landing bay. No luck. "Meltabombs," he barked over the vox as he walked behind his men. He stared at his gauntlets again. He was marked for death, and a failure in this mission would see it sooner rather than later. The bomb turned the door to slag as his squad ran into the room.

 

They were surrounded by astartes. Silver armored, beak-nosed astartes. The Night Lords opened fire, then quickly stopped and began to laugh. These suits of armor were empty. Of unknown mark, but surely empty. There had to be hundreds of the suits. Halan smiled a crooked smile. His company had been fighting in patched-up suits of mark IV and make-shift mark V armor for years now.

 

"Get these to the ships now! Katarc, how long 'til the reactor blows?", Harlan growled.

 

"Fifteen minutes Headsman".

 

Halan stood and admired the view. Amongst the stars a metal disk spun slowly in space. Once his men transferred the last of the power armor to the waiting Storm Eagles, he walked onto his ship. As soon as the ships and dreadclaws were a safe distance away, he commanded all of his men to activate the pict-screens in their worn helmets. The Emperor's head floated above Terra's Might. Burnt metal and singed paint had morphed his stern face into a sad, black skull. Halan activated the vox network.

 

"Five... four... three... two..."

 

A blinding white light illuminated the darkness. The Night Lords cheered, then began to chant in unison, "Death to the False Emperor! Death to the False Emperor!". Halan would avoid death again, but it would still come one day.

 

"Katarc!", the Headsman growled, "Have a servitor prepare one of the new suits for me. I grow tired of these rags".

A Relic and a Trophy

 

Alesandro could no longer sleep. Not that as an Adeptus Astartes he actually needed too, but rest was becoming impossible. the whispers at the edge of his hearing, the blinding rage that would suddenly overtake him and had le to the death of more than one Vostroyan on this forsaken hellhole. He had no doubts as to what the target of this building rage was. Borishkov. The incompetent, foolish, insufferable Captain of the Vostroyans that had been sent to reinforce his men. At that thought Alesandro's expression became a sardonic smirk. Reinforce them. The Vostroyans and their commander were the one thing stopping this campaign from being won. Alesandro, in his duty as captain of the 6th company, had to do something about it. Even as he had that thought he found himself looking towards the armoury that had been erected, where his ornate power axe was currently stored. Emperors Will it was called, and it was passed down from 6th company captain to 6th company captain. Alesandro began walking towards the armoury even as he was having those thought. Utilising his unique squad vox, he summoned his honour guard. They arrived at the armoury nearly all at the same time and as they were admitted he told them of his plan. "Borishkov is losing us this war, the only chance we have of regaining our momentum and crushing these heretics is if he is no longer in charge." He looked at his men, Nerus and Gavriel completely agreed with him, he could tell by their expressions. Dontus looked slightly troubled and Aphael, Aphael was unreadable. But as none had objected to it Alesandro took that to mean they agreed with him. "arm yourselves brothers, in a few minutes we shall win the war" 

 

As they approached the command tent the two guards, veterans of countless campaigns, armed with hellguns and the experience of countless battlefields. It was no where near enough. Alesandro ignored their calls to stop moving forwards and when they levelled their guns at him he just smiled before leaping forwards and grabbing onto one of the guards. Alesandro felt a sudden urge and giving in to it, sanks his fangs into the guardmens neck, before ripping his throat out with a contemptuous turn of his head. The other guardsmans face was ashen and before he could react Nerus had walked up to him and punched a hole through his face. The squad entered the tent as Borishkov looked up, he was about to say something before seeing two of the four spacemarines standing in front of him covered in blood. "Captain, You have been Demoted" Alesandro said in an almost robotic voice before jumping over the Astra Militarum Captains desk and bringing the Emperors will down in a viscous strike. Alesandro bent down and when he stood held the Captains head in his hands. "What we have done tonight brothers, we shall not be unrewarded for it". "Nerus if you please" Nerus nodded and activated the capture setting in his helmet. He then broadcast the video to all the allied forces on the planet. The video showed Alesandro with blazing eyes, blood around his mouth and running down his chin holding Borishkov's severed head.

++ Vostroyans, I have demoted your captain, his incompetence and foolishness came close to losing us the campaign, but i have now rectified that matter. You may either choose a new captain from your ranks, or you may fight me. The choice is yours++ 

 

(the Relic is the Axe, but I have a forging the narrative thing with a friend where I get preferred enemy (imperial guard) and he gets hatred (chaos space marines) because Alesandro kept the head as a trophy and uses it to taunt Vostryans, hence the name)

@Carrack: Just out of curiosity (and I may have missed it if you've already addressed it) but when does the Stolen Relics IF finish? In last weeks entry (bottom of p.4, 18th September), you say it's the 25th October, yet the edited title of this topic says 25th September. As I say I may have missed it, apologies if I have, but if not just thought I'd point it out. 

Anywho:

The Blooded Claws of the Bloodpups

Not all Siege Makers are created from the great geneseed of Perturabo, Master of the IV Legion. Some have flocked to their banner after realising the truth of the Imperium. One such individual is a relatively young Space Wolf, known as Lokorex. He and his pack of Blood Claws were training on the world of Yenden, when the Siege Makers ambushed them and gave them a choice - to live and fight for the Siege Makers, or die there and then. The Wolf Guard Leader, a seasoned veteran, died from a precision Bolt to the throat as he tried to convince the Blood Claws to stay loyal. It was to no avail, and Lokorex was the first of his pack to swear allegiance to Helslash. As a gift, he was given the Lightning Claws worn by the Wolf Guard Leader, chapter relics of the Sons of Russ named the Crossed Bolts, as they were often crossed to form a small arc of lightning before combat. Now, since they have been turned to the services of the Blood God and killed several loyalists, they have been renamed the Blooded Claws, and are a symbol of stature within the Bloodpups pack. 

However, this has not sat well with the Space Wolves chapter. On the world of Grasel VI, a small force of Space Wolves were fighting alongside a combined chapter force to fight the uprisings there. The Siege Makers were part of the uprisings, and Lokorex and the Pups were present too. The squad was repeatedly attacked but, through some dark miracle, lost no casualties. Instead, they slew any who tried to cross their path, and ensured vid-logs were taken to send back to Fenris to show what happened to those who defied the Dark Gods. Lokorex is now one of the most infamous names in The Fang, and orders are to shoot him on sight and retrieve the gauntlets. Better it is the Space Wolves retrieve and destroy them themselves than allow another to claim them and slay more servants of The Emperor. 

 

Ward Bike

Not many chapters went to great lengths to add psychic protection to their bikes. The Star Scythes did, however, and each of their bikes assigned to their Librarius was done on an individual level. But the Star Scythes are no more. Their homeworld was decimated by Eldar of Biel-Tan, their Fortress-Monastry nothing more than an oversized tomb. Their fleet, which had been deliberately stretched thin, had been slaughtered piecemeal by the xenos. The fine works of the bikes was lost to the Imperium, the Inquisition and several chapters wished to know the true secrets of the defences. While several ruined Ward Bikes have been retrieved, virtually all of them are unusable due to excessive damage. Which is why upon discovering the last of the Star Scythes were in fact still living, a small conclave of Inquisitors made several plans to try and hunt them down and retrieve the last know Ward Bike. 

The Ward Bike is in the possession of the Sorceror Vithian, who sold his soul to Tzeentch. To this end, and unbeknown to the Imperium, the Ward Bike has in fact become stronger than ever. It is almost an extension of Vithian's will itself, with him seemingly able to steer without use of his hands. It can track targets across several spectrums and realities and even generates it's own aura for protection against physical harm as well. Vithian, through the bike, also knows he is being hunted by the conclave, and is setting into motion a series of traps to avoid losing his few remaining chapter relics. 

 

Barkesh's Blades

Not all relics and trophies within the Siege Makers take the form of a weapon or piece of wargear. Some are in fact the Astartes themselves. In some cases, what is left of them. While Helslash rules the Siege Makers with a tight fist, he also has the allegiance of the Khorne Daemon Barkesh, who is seeking to allow his legion of Daemons into this realm via possession. The unit known as Barkesh's Blades is one such unit, and one that is an afront to all Sons of Dorn. 

It is made up of three lesser Bloodletter Heralds than Barkesh, each of whom is actually a mighty champion in their own right. Sar'krel enjoys slaying Eldar Wraith units and devouring the spirit stones. He enjoys doing this as a way to deny them to Slaanesh. He also inhabits the body of a Black Templar Champion known as Estikan, and still wields the sword that his mortal host once did, as well as the black and white armour, although most of the icons are now defaced. 

Ar'Kr'Swan, although a daemon of Khorne, enjoys gladitorial combat more than any other form. To this end, he will often tweak ends to allow this to happen rather than rush headlong into combat. It is through these manipulations, so uncharacteristic of a Khorne daemon, that he was able to use a group of Orks to get him to close to Brother Siguel on Rynn's World just after the Reclaimation Fleet began landing. Of all of Barkesh's Blades, he is also the one that sports the least daemonic mutations, instead he just appears to have larger muscles and more height. In addition, he also sports Khornate runes across the host, so as to keep a better foothold in reality. 

The last of the Blades is the greatest - Kiten'Darveed. Once a Son of Horus, he ascended to daemonhood following the Horus Heresy. He despises what has happened to his Legion though, and will disrupt and harm their plans if allowed to do so. However, it is this rage that gives him a sense of purpose, as he has all but forgotten his mortal life. He inhabits the body of the former Veteran Brother Foren, and has wrought some powerful mutations on his host to better accommodate him. 

The names of these Daemons is kept upon the Librarius of the Phalanx, should they be found. These names have also been given to the remaining Librarians on Rynn's World, and to the Crusade Command of the Jekrax Crusade, whom Estikan was formerly a member of.

I also need to edit the event links and winners but that can wait until I'm properly back.

@kierdale: mate, that was sweet to read. You are a true fluff master. So many images congured up with that. Thank you for sharing that. I actually thought itwas a loyalist marine to start with(perspective wise).

I edited it just now to flesh it out a little. Some minor tweaking which had nagged at me since I posted it.
That and I corrected a typo I hadn't noticed, about the chaos space marine's "fate" rather than his "date" :D

Guard your valuables, keep one eye open, and your weapons ready, for Chaos is here and they will even steal your boots off your feet.

Another weeks worth of good stories, and I am left with the difficult task of choosing a winner. This week's contest was about stolen relics, and we had an enormous amount of booty. There I said it :) But seriously, we had a sword, hundreds of suits of rare and valuable power armor, an axe, a book, a suit of Aegis armor, a pair of size 22's, a pair of lightning claws, a ward bike, a trio of Heralds of Khorne, and the face of an alien god. All remorselessly stolen from their rightful owners.

Yet again, another great set of stories. This week I was torn between two contestants in determining the winner. I think Eeshio wrote a good story with his decapitating axe, but I was particularly impressed with Beachymike123 and his collection of stolen goods, especially the ward bike. Beachymike123 claim your award.

Now for the last week of my guest hosting of Inspirational Friday. For the week ending Friday October 2nd, I present.

Summoning

Describe an instance where your army has summoned beings from the warp, be it daemons or anything else. How was the summoning accomplished? Was it a complex ritual, or did a sorcerer bring forth the daemons with the power of his psychic might alone? Or perhaps the Warband committed some act that thinned the veil between reality and beyond, causing daemonic manifestations. Once summoned, how did the Warband interact with the daemons? Did they bargain with them, or did they compel the daemon to do their bidding? What was the purpose of the summoning? Were there unintended consequences?

Please submit your entries by 2 October.

Ok here's my entry
The Death Bringer
Kira stood there. She observed hooded figures moving around outside the window dragging a group of slaves off. "Praise the Emperor" Kira thought believing they hadn't noticed her. reaching for the las pistol holstered at her waist she went to aim it and kill one of the traitors when a crimson armoured marine burst through the door. The silver trim clear to see he saw Kira. "Human you have a choice surrender and convert to the true gods of the galaxy or fight and be dragged to the sacrificial altars where even your corpse god cannot save you" said the marine his voice sounding almost strained like something which would cause him to lose control was trying to break through and he wouldn't allow it "never will I surrender to you you treacherous fiend" Kira screamed before running at the marine and starting to fire her laspistol. As she began to run at him he sent a signal to one of his brother marines who entered the door way and grabbed her.
Dragging her to the altar all she could tell was that it was the world's former cathedral to the corpse Emperor yet now it had been defiled to serve purpose to some dark entity. Kira quickly found herself chained to it. Looking around she saw 2 more marines stood near her wearing the same Crimson coloured plate as the one who had found her. "Ha I'm surprised Hericus didn't tear her limb from limb" said the marine to the left. "He probably fancied her as his slave jimbob" said the other.

Chuckling both marines walked off. As they walked off Kira heard a door open and heard heavy foot steps to her each sounding like a earthquake. "Where is the whore daughter" she heard one of them say. "She's right there chained to the altar Lord Hawkes" said another marine. "Hmmmmm so she is" said Hawkes chuckling to himself "very well prepare the altar for i plan to begin the ritual within the next 5 minute's". As the 2 marines walked towards the altar Lord Hawkes walked towards Kira. The first time Kira saw him she noticed his Crimson armour and it was clearly thicker than the other marines. In one hand he held a stave and in the other nothing but strapped to his side was a bolter and on the other side 5 books hung from his armour each bound to his armour by gold chain. Around his feet moved a small creature almost the size of a human child had Kira not seen it's face it would of not disturbed her but when she saw it's face she saw the face of evil. It's face was like that of a child but it had horns sprouting straight from its head it's eyes almost bloodshot yet the size of bug eyes. When it smiled at her she saw teeth each out sharp looking.

As Hawkes stood there he reached out to Kira mentally "tell me your name human" he whispered. "My name is Kira I am a loyal servant of the Emperor you will not turn me to your heretical ways " she said trying to summon a confidence which just wasn't there. Hawkes chuckled "who said I was going to try and turn you to my heretical ways as you put it. The only reason your here is because you are of use to me and you have something I want" he said with a chilling certainty to his voice. "Jimbob grab this scum and tie her on top of the Altar I will begin now"

As she found herself bound to the top of the Altar Kira began to scream. Above her she could see Hawkes' s armoured hands move over her but not touching her. She could hear him chanting in a language she could not understand. She could feel the air around her get chilly and out of the corner of her eyes she saw shadows darting. Kira began to scream louder hoping someone would hear her and come to save her. All of a sudden she saw something appear out of no where aiming straight for her. As it made contact she felt her life end within seconds with everything turning to darkness.

After a minute or 2 the body which had once been Kira opened its eyes where there had been human eyes before now there was eyes of pure darkness. The creature flexes it's hands and fingers it wasn't used to this form. It stared at its body it's clothes if they could be described as that where reduced to rags. "Tell me sorceror why did you summon me" it said turning around its head to stare at the marine. "Daemon I summoned you and gave you a physical body because I want your aid. If you never born are as all knowing as you claim to be you know what I want. Serve me well and you can keep this form but refuse to serve me or lie to me and I will banish you back to the warp and I will make sure it isn't pleasant for you" said Hawkes with a clear confidence.

"Very well I will lead you to where the Dark Blade is hidden but do know that next time you summon me i won't be so friendly" said the daemon.

Many thanks for the award Brother Carrack. I loved the Stolen Relics idea and felt I had to share some of my warband's treasure trove. I've got a couple of ideas for this week's entry just need to flesh them out a bit. Just for the record, as the Ward Bike seems to be a hit I hereby vow that Vithian and his Ward Bike shall be included in my net game regardless of any other restrictions. I feel it only fitting. If I can I'll try and include all units mentioned, although it does depend on game type, size etc blah blah. 

Also, Warsmith Aznable, sorry to break your winning streak bud. At least I'm keeping it in the IV Legion, sort of tongue.png msn-wink.gif . Nothing like a bit of sporting sparring between Legion brothers to strengthen the bonds and all that.

Ok here's my entry
The Death Bringer
Kira stood there. She observed hooded figures moving around outside the window dragging a group of slaves off. "Praise the Emperor" Kira thought believing they hadn't noticed her. reaching for the las pistol holstered at her waist she went to aim it and kill one of the traitors when a crimson armoured marine burst through the door. The silver trim clear to see he saw Kira. "Human you have a choice surrender and convert to the true gods of the galaxy or fight and be dragged to the sacrificial altars where even your corpse god cannot save you" said the marine his voice sounding almost strained like something which would cause him to lose control was trying to break through and he wouldn't allow it "never will I surrender to you you treacherous fiend" Kira screamed before running at the marine and starting to fire her laspistol. As she began to run at him he sent a signal to one of his brother marines who entered the door way and grabbed her.
Dragging her to the altar all she could tell was that it was the world's former cathedral to the corpse Emperor yet now it had been defiled to serve purpose to some dark entity. Kira quickly found herself chained to it. Looking around she saw 2 more marines stood near her wearing the same Crimson coloured plate as the one who had found her. "Ha I'm surprised Hericus didn't tear her limb from limb" said the marine to the left. "He probably fancied her as his slave jimbob" said the other.

Chuckling both marines walked off. As they walked off Kira heard a door open and heard heavy foot steps to her each sounding like a earthquake. "Where is the whore daughter" she heard one of them say. "She's right there chained to the altar Lord Hawkes" said another marine. "Hmmmmm so she is" said Hawkes chuckling to himself "very well prepare the altar for i plan to begin the ritual within the next 5 minute's". As the 2 marines walked towards the altar Lord Hawkes walked towards Kira. The first time Kira saw him she noticed his Crimson armour and it was clearly thicker than the other marines. In one hand he held a stave and in the other nothing but strapped to his side was a bolter and on the other side 5 books hung from his armour each bound to his armour by gold chain. Around his feet moved a small creature almost the size of a human child had Kira not seen it's face it would of not disturbed her but when she saw it's face she saw the face of evil. It's face was like that of a child but it had horns sprouting straight from its head it's eyes almost bloodshot yet the size of bug eyes. When it smiled at her she saw teeth each out sharp looking.

As Hawkes stood there he reached out to Kira mentally "tell me your name human" he whispered. "My name is Kira I am a loyal servant of the Emperor you will not turn me to your heretical ways " she said trying to summon a confidence which just wasn't there. Hawkes chuckled "who said I was going to try and turn you to my heretical ways as you put it. The only reason your here is because you are of use to me and you have something I want" he said with a chilling certainty to his voice. "Jimbob grab this scum and tie her on top of the Altar I will begin now"

As she found herself bound to the top of the Altar Kira began to scream. Above her she could see Hawkes' s armoured hands move over her but not touching her. She could hear him chanting in a language she could not understand. She could feel the air around her get chilly and out of the corner of her eyes she saw shadows darting. Kira began to scream louder hoping someone would hear her and come to save her. All of a sudden she saw something appear out of no where aiming straight for her. As it made contact she felt her life end within seconds with everything turning to darkness.

After a minute or 2 the body which had once been Kira opened its eyes where there had been human eyes before now there was eyes of pure darkness. The creature flexes it's hands and fingers it wasn't used to this form. It stared at its body it's clothes if they could be described as that where reduced to rags. "Tell me sorceror why did you summon me" it said turning around its head to stare at the marine. "Daemon I summoned you and gave you a physical body because I want your aid. If you never born are as all knowing as you claim to be you know what I want. Serve me well and you can keep this form but refuse to serve me or lie to me and I will banish you back to the warp and I will make sure it isn't pleasant for you" said Hawkes with a clear confidence.

"Very well I will lead you to where the Dark Blade is hidden but do know that next time you summon me i won't be so friendly" said the daemon.

not bad. two things though. PUNCTUATION. PLEASE. also do you really have a chaos space marine called jimbob? because I mean... its pretty funny. but how is the poor guy going to strike fear into the corpse gods lackeys when they are too busy laughing a his name?

I'm assuming the ward bike counts as a disc of Tzentch? I like the idea of using one with the Brand, or possibly a sorcerer throwing force lightning on things. I even have an idea for converting one, not as cool as a jetbike, but I have yet to build a suitable retinue yet. Let us know how it goes.

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.

It's been a busy week so I won't be able to finish my entry in time. I'll post it next week anyway :) Sadly I didn't have time to read anyone else's entries...yet.

Once Carrack had chosen this week's winner I'll put up the next challenge.

Summoning.


Another week of good tales. Once again I enjoyed reading everyone of them. Since we only had a few entries, I thought I would add my own critiques on what was good and what needed improvement for each. These are all nothing more than my personal opinions, and I'm uneducated, unsophisticated, and occasionally of unsound mind. );

Warsmith Aznable.
+ perfectly captured the use and view of daemons by his Legion.
+ Multiple narrators worked well in telling both an overarching story, and the traditions and practices handed down in his Grand Company.
+I found the character of "Finder" very believable, and an interesting take on a psycher.

-perhaps a little more detail on the setting, not a major drawback, as the story is great as is, and more detail may make the story too long, but it seemed like a missed opportunity to do a bit of world building.

Thedarkprincesnun.
+ Your description of the ritual and subsequent possession was unique and very grim, and dark.
+There was a clear plot to the story,
+Jimbob the Chaos Marine. Coffee exited my nose I laughed so hard.

-Grammar and punctuation. I'm by no means a stickler for such things, the story is more important, but poor grammar and punctuation break up the flow of the story, as the reader has to reread or decipher the intent of the author.
- Kira is a bit of a stereotypical character, perhaps you could explain the reason she had such fanatical devotion, because while it certainly can be believable if explained, it's not normal human behavior.
-Kira refers to the "former cathedral to the corpse Emperor". I doubt faithful loyalists refer to the Emperor as the Corpse Emperor.

Scourged
+epic, epic battle, epic ritual.
+ the characters of the two brothers were interesting and compelling.
+ Great action, I have consistently been impressed with every IF story you have submitted, but this time your fight scenes really stood out, in addition to the plot and characters that you normally write so well.

-What happened when the sacrifices went into the pit? I'm assuming the mist or energy killed them somehow, but I was unclear as to what the pit did to the sacrifices.



Once again, great stories all, but there has to be a winner. Honestly, this last week of my guest hosting IF has been the hardest to choose a winner. The stories of Warsmith Aznable and Scourged both stood out as potential winners, but I choose Warsmith Aznable as the winner of this week's IF. Claim your prize.
