Inspirational Friday: Prophecymed_gallery_63428_7083_113631.png

For those who do not know it, Inspiration Friday is a (generally) fortnightly weekly event within its home in the Chaos Space Marines forum, in which a topic is set for members to write short (or long if the muse takes you) fluff/fan-fic pieces about their war bands, characters and models.

And here begins our eleventh challenge of Inspirational Friday 2018: Prophecy
The gods whisper into mortal ears and minds, all too often with promises of power, glory or other desires fulfilled, but also on occasion with words of guidance or warning. They would not see their plans (be they grand or trifling distractions from the greater game) foiled so easily, or they lend their guidance to mortals so those plots might flourish.
Even the Corpse-God, the God-Emperor of mankind has been known to give guidance to the faithful, via his tarot or visions.
Over the next two weeks I would have you write pieces on the subject of prophecy.
From what higher power do these visions come?
Who is the mortal or mortals blessed(? Cursed?) with this guidance?
Does the prophet succeed in interpreting divine will correctly?
And what forces oppose the prophecy?

Why am I posting such a heretical thread here?
Well, was it not the first of your number, your beloved Sigismund who was swayed by the words of a witch?
Is the Emperor’s champion not granted visions upon the eve of war?
...and Inspirational Friday has had some great entries from members of this forum in the past.


IF2018: Prophecy! runs until the 22nd 29th of June.
Let us be inspired.

The winner of IF2018: Prophecy! shall claim the Octed amulet:

.to treasure or destroy (as Honda has...once? twice?)
...and the honour of judging the next topic (which they may choose to relinquish to me as they wish).

Prophecy is heresy, a grossly misunderstood  tool of witches.

 

The Emperor on the other  hand, only reveals his will to those with faith, something that Chaos knows nothing about.

 

However, we DO know what to do with witches.

I can still smell the charred remains of the heretic from Brethren Honda and his last delve into this challenge. I eagerly await to see what becomes of this prophecy...

Well, I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you
Oh, but I gotta think twice
Before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play
Because I play them too
Oh, but I need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
Oh, when that love comes down without devotion
Well, it takes a strong man, baby
But I'm showin' you the door
'Cause I gotta have faith
I gotta have faith
Because I got to have faith, faith, faith
I got to have faith, faith, faith

Baby, I know you're asking me to stay
Sayin' please, please, please don't go away
You say I'm giving you the blues
Maybe you mean every word you say
Can't help but think of yesterday
And another who tied me down to loverboy rules
Before this river becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
Oh baby, I've reconsidered my foolish notion
Well, I need someone to hold me
But I'll wait for something more
Yes, I gotta have faith
Mm, I gotta have faith
Because I've gotta have faith, faith, faith
I gotta have faith, faith, faith
I'll just have to wait
Because I got to have faith
I gotta have faith
I got to, got to, got to have faith
Before this river becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
(I've just got to have faith)
Oh, oh baby, I've reconsidered my foolish notion
Well, I need someone to hold me
But I'll wait for something more
'Cause I gotta have faith
Mm, I gotta have faith
Because I've gotta have faith, faith, faith
I gotta have faith, faith, faith

Walking side by side with death
The devil mocks their every step, ooh
The snow drives back the foot that's slow
The dogs of doom are howling more, oh
They carry news that must get through
To build a dream for me and you
They choose the path where no one goes

They hold no quarter
They ask no quarter...

With the deadline days away - and IF always slower during the ETL - would you like me to push the deadline back a week?

I would not hold it for me. I actually have two solid concepts that I'm working, but they are taking longer to develop than I had planned.

 

So as intrigued as I am by the topic and what I will do with it, I will have to pass.

Well, there has been a request in the CSM forum for a third week so I am pushing the deadline back to the 29th.
If you do think you can finish your idea/work by then, I’d love to read it :)

Ok, one of the ideas will be ready by the 29th. So, you can count me in.

And you went and won it :D

Congratulations, Honda. That’s two Octed amulets you’ve got so fast, right? Quite a collection of Chaos trinkets you’re getting...

Oh, wow, I'm honored. Thank you, I guess I'd better get over there...

 

This story will be the starting point for our narrative campaign that kicks off in a <hopes> not too much longer. It's going to be a very comprehensive thread, with a campaign, battle reports, modeling, and stories.

 

Keep an eye out in WIP for something called "The Kairos Intervention" in a few weeks.

 

Cheers,
