If it makes you feel better San, I gave up when I saw the Inquistorial squad warning.

Nomus and Pionus, our Daft Punk duo.

Nomus: Brother, I believe we should combine our efforts to improve Human and Astartes physiology, with our combined intellects we could make the species superhuman, combining the strengths of both with neither's weakness.

Pionus: An intriguing proposition Nomus, one I find myself strongly considering, we could revolutionise the field of genetics!

Nomus: Humanity as a whole could be improved.

Pionus: Harder.

Nomus: Better.

Pionus: Faster.

Nomus: Stronger.

Seeing as Squig is MIA, going to ask here first. San, do you need any help with the Steel Legion fluff?

Well off the top of my head I still need to decide on a name for the SL's Homeworld and flesh it put a bit, plus properly write up Nomus's history and origin beyond the general outline posted at the start of the thread and how he's rediscovered by the Imperium. Unfortunately my PC has just chosen the worst time to crap out on me (I fear the power unit's gone) so that leaves me with only my old-ass IPod to write up and post stuff.

Didn't you decide on Saepio?

Is there any of that you want me to have a bash at? Or would you prefer to diy?

Didn't you decide on Saepio?

It was one of the strong contenders but we never made a decision, plus now I'm a bit reluctant to use it given that would make all the natives "Sapiens" and I'm unsure whether that sounds dumb, is just confusing or actually a little clever (albiet unintentionally) as Saepio means "to think". What do you think?

As for the rest there's still so many details to add and iron out first I'm not sure where you could even begin, perhaps we could toss some ideas back and forth and forge a more through and detailed idea of the Homeworld to work with? My first idea is that "Saepio" could have once been a remote military/research world where a lot of new and experimental technology was developed and tested, far from the more habitable worlds of man. Likewise the research stations and military bases on the planet are spread out in remote locations deep in the vast stretches of wasteland far from the few Hive cities.

That gives me an idea. How about Saepio has two castes: the Saepiens and Laborans. The Saepiens are the ruling class connected by a Collective while the Laborans are the normal people who Nomus leads in rebellion?


Keeping your idea that Saepio is a former military testing facility, what if an experiment went badly wrong and made the surface into an uninhabitable wreck, forcing the population underground, only venturing above ground to scavenge bits of gear left behind by the research stations?

The two castes idea works well as it harkens back to our concept where human citizens advanced in societal standing by undergoing bionic enhancements that allowed them to manage systems for the AI Overseer (with oversight of course) allowing it to focus on more important issues. These "vital" citizens lived in utopian floating cities ruled directly by the AI and it's automata Peacekeepers, whereas the non-vital population lived in the sprawling slum-cities on the blighted surface below struggling to survive by scavenging from the ruins of the Hives or working in crude factories to produce basic parts and items to trade with the Overseer's Peacekeepers in exchange for valuable supplies from the floating cities like water purifiers, solar power units and medicine.

That sounds like an excellent idea, perhaps the experiment required extensive supply to maintain meaning that after Saepio became isolated and off-world shipments stopped coming in this led to the catastrophic deterioration of the experiment, the devastation of the surface and with it the dwindling of the colony's remaining supplies.!It could be the catalyst that forces the remaining goverment/military elements to seek out the remaining research stations in search of something that can help prevent the colony's slow death, eventually they find the infant AI that becomes the Overseer, leading to them eventually surrendering control to it in the name of survival.

Just to let you know, San, for your exemplary battles, you'll be writing two as in the style of the Alpha Legion.

How do you mean? Can you give an example for me to work from?

Steel Legion will have two exemplary battles.

If you need an example from FW, I can help you via pm.

Btw. Do you have any FW HH books to have a look by yourself?

What Kel said. You'll have two exemplary battles instead of the more traditional 3 or 1 format.
