The Inner Circle presents:

Dark Angels Thread

The Master of the Deathwing walked cautiously through the stacks of tomes. He had to shed his armor to walk into the narrow confines of the Librarium. His approach did not go unnoticed to the various Librarians working and studying in alcoves cut into the rock. This area was dedicated to the Inner Circle of the Deathwing and only those brothers inducted into the circle were permitted to enter. His glance caught on a recently transcribed tome describing the service record of Naaman for future study and inspiration for other Sergeants tasked with training in the 10th Company. Belial allowed himself to recall the events where the two had shared the field of battle. It was in an after action report that detailed how Naaman had died facing a dreadnought while he had assisted the First Company on Piscina.

“Master Belial?”

Snapped from his collection of thoughts, he turned to the Codicier that stood next to him. “How many of these are there within the Libraries of the Rock?”

“There are precious few. Most are about the Masters, Grand Masters of the Chapter and those interred in the sarcophagi of the dreadnoughts. Your own has already been started, but for those who never made the Rank of Master would be lucky to receive a paragraph in the Rolls of Honor in their Company Tome. It is a sad shame, many Company Veterans have tried to record their fallen brothers honors in battle only to fall in battle before their task is complete.”

“It is something we should try to remedy. I will see to it, Codicier.”

INTRODUCTION:
The Legends of the Angels is a Forum Event aimed at participants creating unique stories about a character, squad or chapter. While this has started out as a Dark Angels only event, it is being opened to those in other forums who would like to participate.

HOW TO ENTER:
1. Make an oath in this thread in the following manner:

I, <<your name>>, Scribe of the <<CHAPTER, LEGION or REGIMENT>>, in the name of the <<PRIMARCH/EMPEROR>>, make this oath of moment to submit a completed story about <<insert character or squad here>>.

2. Write your story and submit it in the Fan Fiction Subforum with a link posted in this thread before Midnight of February 6, 2017.

MODERATI REQUEST: I do not have the powers to edit a thread so can I ask a Moderati to clean up the thread to remove unnecessary posts so that after the completion of the competition it is nothing but the final stories?

ENTRY CRITERIA:

  • The story should have a minimum 200 words and a maximum of 5,000 words. Spell-check and grammar-check are highly encouraged and recommended.
  • Optional: Include artwork or photos of scenes from your battles using your painted minis.
  • Optional: Include characters or squads that were a part of a prior Painting Competition or the Brotherhood of Angels Competition or MAY be a part of a future Competition.

Possible Story Ideas

  • A narrative of a squad or individual marine’s performance in battle (from one of your games).
  • A story taking place in the time of Horus Heresy, possibly a link to the BL books.
  • Fleshing out a story in the History of the chapter (The Fall of Gideon - Master of the Ravenwing, The Subterfuge of Supreme Grand Master Anaziel and the creation of the Disciples of Caliban, etc…)
  • A story about one of the Heroes of the chapter (Asmodai’s First Black Pearl, The Fall and Rise of Ezekiel, etc…)

The Shadow Guard’s simple steps to Fan Fiction:

  • Pick a model in your army, it doesn't have to be the commander nor your favourite model. It may be even a lowly neophyte or a veteran Deathwing Sergeant.
  • Think of a game you played where this particular model did very well. Eg: A devastator lascannon marine who took out three tanks? A scout sniper who did the enemy commander in? A chaplain who led an amazing charge... you get the idea….
  • Write down how the battle took place building around the model in question.
  • Then go back and add some information about the early years and then follow up with the aftermath.
  • Keep reading it again and again and you will find that you can add additional details to flesh things out and voila Luther's your traitor!!

Food for thought provided by the Liber Astartes Forum
Thought Experiments

REWARDS:
Once you make your oath you may wear the following banner or module in your signature:

gallery_4664_12529_13522.jpg

Once you complete your submission you will be given a chapter badge that you may wear the completed banner or module:

I got a question that I'll post my answer here.

Entries in this thread is open to all factions within the B&C. (The DA have a dedicated thread as that is the birthplace. I will glady start a forum specific thread with Mod permission.)

Remember that write ups are to be placed in the FAN FICTION subforum so that we don't cloud up the LIber Forum with Sororitas, Chaos, AdMech or IG stories.

Also, a question - is it possible to make a submission to this thread and the DA one (seeing as I made a Chapter for the BoA event not too long ago)? Different entries, of course.

I've got a rather generic vow, because I thought it would be fun tongue.png

 

I, Servant of Dante, layman scribe assigned to assist the Order of the Quill, do make this oath of moment to here submit several stories recounting various actions of the servants of the Adeptus Ministorum, translated into the low gothic from the work of Sister Auria Feineth of the Order of the Quill, as ordered by the Sister in the name of the Immortal God-Emperor of Mankind.

 

(The Order of the Quill is one of the Orders Diologus based in the Convent Sanctorum (which is of course on Ophelia VII))

If anyone has seen my suggestions to Vagabird to help out with a new chapter. It's stirred up some ideas for me to write about.

Guys, I'm sorry but I have to withdraw my vow.

 

As it turns out, I wanted too much at the same time. ^^

The Wrath of Magnus / Thousand Sons hype led to the creating of my TSons warband and the Warbeasts chapter. It's been a month since I worked on both of them. So I decided to focus again on more important projects like the BotL again.

 

Therefore, I'm unable to afford the necessary time to continue my vow. :/

 

cheers

This is running until February so there is still time but focus on what you can. With the Mods blessing, this will be here again next year.

The last remaining survivor of Istvaan V, his ancient Contemptor chassis rests on Deliverance, forgotten by all save the Shadow Masters and Tech-priests. When xenos threaten the Ravenspire itself, the ancient one will be roused from his centuries long slumber to battle alongside his brothers once more.

Gur! I can't edit this thing because I get too into it every time I read it tongue.png This is something I wrote around the time of the Genestealer cult release. It's the only time I've ever had to write something right now. I sat down, and I think my hands were shaking with how excited I was feeling. Of course, the topic of such an experience was an Ecclesiarchy Cardinal rallying his congregation against a cult uprising. Hopefully this counts toward my vow, but I have other ideas I intend to write about in the furture smile.png

 

I really do hope you enjoy. I'm pretty pleased with this piece myself, and I'd be happy to hear your thoughts.

I am not rescinding my vow, but I am altering the subject.

There is just too much of my original idea to fit comfortably in a short story, so I am going with something that does lend itself to short format.

The title will simply be "Trial", and it will still feature my beloved denizens of the Ravenspire.

If you must have a character name for the top post, Veteran Sergeant Kylless Rook (7th Squad, 3rd Company) will be prominent.
