Tyber is convinced they need to get to that ship, but first they need to put this beast down.

@Apologist - Twenty Centuries ago? Wait, is Yeng over 2,000 years old? huh.png


A spritely 88 – one of the quirks of the Gatebreakers is their treatment of their armour’s records as their personal memories.

As am I keen to expand beyond just bolter p0rn. I enjoy exploring the characters more than the action.

It's good that such an avenue is open to us though, since there's always the problem of the Marines driving an action narrative.  A lot of the time, the Deathwatch are boots on the ground when the investigation, the heresy and tomfoolery ends and the real trouble starts.

 

Then it's Sabaton and bolt shells, boys.

Couldn't help myself, sorry guys, must have too much time on my hands (at least it's on topic!)

 

Attack of the Deathwatch (Attack of the Dead Men: Sabaton)

 

Turmoil at the front,

Tyranids upon the hunt,

They're horrific slavering beasts,

Upon Syndalla they will feast,

They're all teeth, and toxic gas,

A roaring chitinous mass,

Turn the tide of the attack!

Force the monsters to turn back!

 

And that's when the Deathwatch are marching again...

 

Blackthorn and Swordhand again,

Attack of the Deathwatch again,

Dealing out lead once again,

A dozen men, charge again,

Xenos die again...

 

(Repeat).

 

And we're off!

 

MR.

Hi all,

I don't have a lot of time to post over the weekend but I am targeting an update as soon as I am able to do so on Monday. If you'd like to get any posts or placeholders up before then, please do.

In short - you will not encounter immediate hostiles when you exit the torpedo, and it will afford me the opportunity to describe a bit of the ship (beyond what's in Mazer's post) and to allow you to catch your breath and find your bearings.

Taking on board what Xin and Tyber said - the best thing you can do is to acknowledge/remark upon the things I'm including! A giant battleship has just entered the system and you've no idea why. You could also attempt to contact the Imperial fleet or the Xenocide more particularly to ascertain what's going on.

Hope all are well, and see you tomorrow!

Regarding Solastion's idea: Using information from the briefing and initial targeting of our boarding torpedo (Security Skill - Breaching tactics) and information from the Augury as well as anything we can get hold on during the breach - could Sabaan triangulate a rough direction to our objective? Or what would we need to orientate ourselves?

General medical advise: Do not eat anything from the poisoned xenos vessel please ;)

Right, I've finally gone through all my advances and made sense of them:

 

Spoiler
 
The Bolter Drill ultimately makes no sense, and so I'm retroactively purchasing it with my next set of advances (if it's a problem, I never used Autosanguine or Feedback Screech, so pretend I didn't buy them until now).
 
Provisional advances:

(Forging the Bond (500XP))

Yeng's suggested advance route:

400XP – Medicae +10  
1000XP – for Hunter of Aliens  [+10 to WS and +2 Damage to Melee against Xenos] – this seems fitting to Yeng's background (and the Gatebreakers' in general) of fighting lots of previously-unknown species on the Rim. 
500XP – Strength +5
200XP – WS +5

Thanks Morovir and Apologist - we have upgrades for all except Dosjetka and Reyner.

Thank you also, Apologist, for your very good (and very useful) post - I really like the imagery of the Astartes as shrapnel from the bullet, diving deeper into the target.

I will be attempting an update today, if not tomorrow.

I've sent you all an email, but for those who haven't checked, I will be awarding all players 2000XP to spend as they wish, along with the Forging the Bond talent for 500XP. This should take all players up to 7500XP. 

 

Please prepare your XP expenditures in this post but don't update your character sheets yet until I've had a look.

Ghent:

Air of Authority - Tactical Marine Advance (500xp)

Hip Shooting - Tactical Marine Advance (500xp)

Mighty Shot - Tactical Marine Advance (500xp)

Resistance (Posions) - General Marine Advance (500xp)

Forging the Bond (500xp)

(Ghent is now at 7400xp)

Sorry for the temporary radio silence on my end. Things have gotten a little busy over here. A little bit of good news, I had nailed a job interview today and was offered a paid trial test the same day. I'm going to try and knock out my test assignment tomorrow, which will likely take up most of my day, but I should be entirely freed up on Friday. 

 

I put up another placeholder for now and I'll try to get both of them filled on Friday if I don't have any time tomorrow. 

 

Loving all the posts, gents!
