Hail, brothers and sisters of the long war! As the followers of the corpse emperor draw closer, we shall muster and unify our forces. This year’s ETL VII is more important than ever, as we must avenge the disruption of out winning streak by the Blood Angels, who won after our ETL hat-trick (winning ETLs III, IV, and V). As we bask in the eternity of chaos, we shall laugh in the face of our opponent's futile efforts to win. We shall show these upstarts who the real Primes Inter Pares are:
All participants of the Chaos Space Marine forums of the ETL VII are hereby called upon to muster their forces and VOW THEIR SOUL TO CHAOS. Come forth, legionnaires and renegades, murderers and sycophants, worshipers and dilettantes! Answer our call to fire up your forges, collect your miniatures, wet your brushes, and start painting!
The Soul Vow is a satellite event of the ETL VII, aimed at doubling, tripling, quadrupling, or even quintupling the points of your first ETL VII vow. (There is no limit to the amount of times you want to multiply your points.) This event is meant purely as an extra motivator/inspirator for the ETL, so that the Chaos Space Marine Strategium will reign supreme - as is its right.
SOUL VOW FORMAT
Those who wish to participate must post their Soul Vow in this thread in the following format, and before they make their second vow in the strategium (excepting those who have already re-vowed before the start of this satellite event). The aim is to double, triple, quadruple, or even quintuple the amount of your first vow's points in the entire ETL.
Suppose your first vow in the ETL was 1000 points and you vow to double that amount in this event, then when the ETL closes you must have finished a total of 1000x2=2000 points in the entire ETL. So your first vow's points count to the total amount. As the vow limit in the ETL is always five, you have four vows to make this multiplication. In the example here, you can complete a second vow of 200 points, a third of 500, and a fourth of 300 points, after which you have fulfilled your Soul Vow of doubling your first vow's 1000 points.
Please post your Soul Vow in this event, using the following format:
“I, [name], vow my soul to chaos and swear to [double / triple / quadruple / quintuple/etc.) my first ETL VII vow, amounting to at least [X] times [points cost of first vow] points total completed on or before September 1st, 2019. Should I fail the forces of chaos and not complete my sworn points, I shall bear the SOUL LOST banner until the year-end.”
As this is an ETL VII satellite event, the ETL is leading in terms of completions. Only those completions counted in the OP of the Chaos Space Marines Strategium will be counted here. So please make sure that your completions are recorded there on time. If yours haven't been recorded, please contact Captain Semper, the ETL VII event organizer.
PREVIOUS BLACK CRUSADES
Naturally, there’s a banner* and/or medallion* for those participating, and there will be medallions with pips for those who complete their SOUL VOW!
**Just as a quick reminder to all to keep an eye on the amount of image space used in your signature. The limit it 999pixels x 100pixels. Just so you can gauge it better, the sizes used on the graphics here are:
You can also add images to your 'about me' page in your profile. This is a great way to display your hard work in forum events like this one and the upcoming E Tenebrae Lux.
Q: If I make a soul vow, do I have to fulfill the doubling/tripling/etc. in one single vow or can I use as many as I want?
A: You can use as many vows (up to four) as you want to fulfill your soul vow. Suppose your first vow was 1500 points, and your Soul Vow is to double that amount in the ETL, you can use up to four vows to fulfill your Soul Vow - for example Vow 2: 600 points, Vow 3: 200 points, Vow 4: 400 points, and Vow 5: 300 points. How you fulfil your Soul Vow is up to you - but remember: completion of your latest ETL vow is most important.
Q: Can you explain what you mean by 'multiplying your ETL VII vow' by using the standard example of doubling?
A: If you double your original ETL VII vow, your total ETL VII points should reach at least twice your original vow's points. So suppose your original vow is worth 1500 points, the total amount of your completed ETL VII points should be at least 3000.
Eldrick Shadowblade 539 x 2 = 1078 total ETL points
Freakshow668 565 x 4 = 2260 total ETL points
Lhorke the First 278 x 2 = 356 total ETL points
Sgt. Blank 172 x 2 = 344 total ETL points
