Transmit File 879823/)  Fabricator-General transmission to all Chapters

Date: 0812998.M41

Subject:  Authorization for assistance.

Rating: Singulous Omega 
(Chapter Master only)

Cross ref to: Lord Magos Dadeolus, Fabricator-General; Master of the forges

Commander, it is my pleasure to acknowledge your chapters desire to assist the servants of the Omnisah.  This message has been sent to all Chapter Masters to acknowledge their unswerving loyalty to the Emperor, the High Lords of Terra, and the honor of their chapters.  The details of your unswerving loyalty will follow.

Orders: The Mechanicus has determined the honor of service is to be extended to chapters who serve the Emperor.  Honorable chapters whom serve their charter to the High Lords of Terra will be rewarded with one company worth of Equipment, details of the equipment to follow.

Your chapter is provide one squad of Marines, armored in the Omnisah’s most sacred Exo-Armor , for deployment to the task set forth by the Magos Promotum.  Said squad must be prepared to deploy within one Terra week from this transmission and must provide required authorizations, details of requirements to follow.

The squad will be under the nomial command of the Magos Promotum aboard their transport, and will autonomously perform their mission.  The squad’s geneseed, and exo-armor, as well as any surviving members will be returned upon the completion of the mission.  

Requirements:  The squad members should be. . .

Lord Commander Aeternus re-read the message before looking up at Magos Reproba. The Magos, more machines then human, was perched upon his artificial legs waiting for the Lord Commander’s response.

Aeternus’ voice boomed in the small room, “We will have the men ready within the standard hour Magos. As always the marines of the Aquila Puerilis are bound to serve the Imperium, under the guidelines of the Emperor.

The Magos’ legs whirred to life, pivoted the Magos on the spot, and then carried Reproba out of Aeternus’ private alcove.

Aeternus tapped the internal vox communicator, ordering his Lieutenant Commander to prepare the required forms, and prepare squad Munus for battle.

----------------------------------------------------------

Librarian Theolus stood at attention before the Lord Commander; behind him he could feel the presence of Master Chaplain Bedol. Librarians in the Aquila Puerilis were not trusted, part of the teachings of the Emperor warned against psykers, and Theolus knew he was an alpha class psyker, dangerous in the extreme to the chapter, but without peer in his accomplishments. It was his unswerving honor that had won him the Crux Argentum, and his place as a Commander. Even then, Bedol distrusted him, and would not let him in the presence of the Lord Commander alone.

Aeternus handed Theolus a slip of paper, waited a fraction of a moment and spoke. “Theolus, I give you the honor of leading this mission, your Terminators will travel with the Mechanicus, and perform their task.”

Theolus, his heightened abilities had allowed him to read the entire message as the Lord Commander had passed it to him spoke at once.
“Only by imperfection can we fail him.”

Bedol and Aeternus responded instantly, “We will not fail him.”

Theolus turned and left the alcove, and Bedol turned to follow him, but paused at a glance from the Lord Commander.

“Let him ready Munus for the coming battle, see to the new recruits, soon we shall have a fully company to raise.”

Bedol’s eyes opened with a mixture of glee and surprise. “We will not fail him”, he stated as he turn, and left.

Aeternus considered the magnitude of the foe that would loosen the coffers of the Adeptus Mechanicus. A full companies worth of equipment would be a boon to the chapter. Theolus would accomplish his task with speed and honor. The chapter would expand and they would not fail the emperor.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Theolus read the requirements:


Each Chapter offering to serve the Emperor must:
1) Have a squad fully prepared for battle.
2) Provide a list of the Marines they will provide, including all wargear and psychic potential.
3) Provide a Vox Photo of the squad gathered together.
4) Provide a Vox Photo of each squad member from the top looking straight down.
5) Provide a Vox Photo of each squad member from the front.
6) Provide a short petition to the Adeptus Mechanicus to be included in the mission.

His Sgt had taken care of the requirements within minutes, and the package was delivered to Reproba's representative. Now it was time to wait.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Magos Reproba processed the information he had been given, and turned to the Telepath wired to the wall behind him. He initiated the rite of communciation, striking the runes for Terra. And gave a silent prayer to the Emperor.

The connection quickly established, and the image of the Fabricator General himself formed before him. Reprobra knew that over this distance the psyker would only be able to maintain the connection for a few moments.

He held before the eyes of the slave psyker, each of the vox photos, and then stated the name of the chapter. "Aquila Puerilis".

The Fabricator General nodded, and Spoke "We have 30 Kelderoth classh ships prepared. Be prepared within the week for yours to arrive. May the Omnisah have mercy upon your flesh."

The Psyker in front of Reproba gave a shudder, and the machinery he was hooked to righteously electrified the pitiful creature. Warp influence, a moment of weakness, or the onset of death, it mattered not, the Omnisah had found him wanting and killed him.

So one week until the mission begins. Reproba would have to have the Adeptus Astartes in his care prepared by then.





-------------------------------------------------------

B&C Space Hulk AoD rules and modelling ideas can be found here.

For this AoD there will be 30 slots available during the first iteration.

If a bunch of people get together, and plan a crusade for the Mechanicus, they are more likely to accept their offer.

So, subforums can "gather" togehter.

It will still be individuals commanding forces, but perhaps the Mechanicus will see fit to honor the chapter/forum (in the case of the index Astartes forum, or DIY). Or perhaps a group of like minded chapters can petition the Mechanicus together.

I.e. the more you put in, the more you are likely to be chosen by the Mechanicus to have the honor of dieing, I mean fighting, for the Emperor.

In character for you chapter.

There was an implied joke. You have to petition to help the Mechanicus. A psychic spam from the Mechanicus. :P

So a short petition to help the Mechanicus, in character.

So how would your chapter repsond to the authorization to assist the Mechanicus comminication. :P

Cross ref to: The Angelus Sanctus



Subject:

  It has recently come to our attention that you asked a quesiton about the innerworking and mechanicusms of the Adpetus Mechanicus mission (refered to later as Exhibit Epsilon).  The Mechanicus review team has determined that your inquiry rates as a Crimson Gamma threat.  



  The fact that there may not be thirty loyal chapters to the Emperor, blessed be he for guiding us, strikes as the deepest Heresy.  All loyal Chapters will respond within the prerequisite time period and with all the expected piousness of loyalist chapters.  Chapters who show their heritical ways, by not responding will be turned over to the Ordos Painticus for "re-education".



  But for a moment, let's entertain the concept that there are not thirty chapters still loyal to the Emperor, may he light the darkness that threatens to consume us.  If such an absurd possibility could exist, the chapters still loyal could not wait for others to realize their Heresy!  To do so would be to dishonor the Emperor, May his light destroy those who are tainted, and the Adeptus Mechanicus.



  Chapters who petition and are granted the honor of serving the Adpetus Mechanicus would be dispatched to their appointed locations to perform their most sacred duties.  While other teams would be sent to dispatch those chapters who have shown themselves to be creatures afraid of the light of the Emepror, may his name drive the enemies of the Imperium to their dark pits.  



  So the ships are being prepared and will arrive to transport the honorable members of the still loyal chapters upon the annointed, and appointed hour.



  Please, prepare your soul for the cleansing it so needs for questioning the loyality of those honorable Chapters.

Sire,
Artemis has delegated to me the task of selecting those warriors who would be honoured with the chance to prove themselves in your mission. After significant deliberation Brother Sergeant Balur was chosen to lead our strike team, due to relevant tactical experience. The remaining Brothers were taken from his veteran squad (see vid-logs 1942-B through 2184-A, De-encription code "Blazing Sun"). All have proven themselves in combat multiple times, at one point removing and neutralizing a carnifex (vid-log 8419-I) for study by The Adeptus Mechanicus. There may be some small delay in transit due to current upgrading and repair of the Tactical Dreadnought Armour they will be using. List of equipment follows:

++DATA STREAM CORRUPTED... ATTEMPTING MESSAGE RETRIEVAL++

<FRAGMENT MISSING> Balur: Lightning Claws
Brother Izual: Lightning Claws
Brother <FRAGMENT MISSING> and storm shield
<FRAGMENT MISSING>: Lightning Claws

++CORRUPTION CORRECTED... POSSIBLE CAUSE: MEMORY CORE FAILURE++

Regret I am unable to attend personally, but other matters require looking into. Sergeant Balur and his squad will be there shortly, pending completion of upgrades.

I have to touch up the paint. aside from the equipment listed in the transmission the squad also has furious charge and comes to 215pts.

Theolus had ordered Munus squad on continuous training operations. Master Sergeant Delit, Lord Trainer of the Chapter, had prepped the training areas for a variety of missions. Due to the lack of information available, he had created training plans for the 7 members of Munus squad. Each squad member of the squad would spend the next 7 days in their terminator armor going through the rigors of Advanced Exo-Armor training, something they had all done hundreds of times. The training would rotate each of the members through all of the weapon options for the Terminator Armor. Librarian Theolus, one of the few in the chapter to have earned the Crux Argentum, would lead each training exercise. From Ship Boarding simulations, to Death World survival, the Terminator armored members of Munus would be pushed to their limits.

Without additional information about the objectives, the all the members of the squad would cross train with the weapon options available to their Tactical Dreadnought armor. Only Theolus trained with his standard weapons, the Force Sword and Storm Bolter. Special ammunition types were to be used during the traning sessions. Munus was not unique in the Aquila Puerilis chapter, and all of the members had served time in the Death Watch teams of the Ordo Xenos. The chapter upheld the teachings of the Emperor, and gladly served along side the forces of the Imperium to cleanse the universe of xenos.

It was 23 hours into their first rotation of training when Magos Reproba summoned Theolus and squad Munus to the Mechanicus’ orbiting station. The Mechanicus kept a large presence above the planet Veneratio, home world of the Aquila Puerilis. The base served as a staging area for the chapter’s fleet, as well as the final defense line for the planet. Also in orbit were several ship hulks, used for boarding practices. Squad Munus had been scheduled to use them during training hours 75 to 100.

**********************************************
As the commander approached a voice stated, “Librarian Theolus, please come in.” The mechanical tones of the voice indicated a Mechanicus origin. Theolus stepped into the mechanically infested room, and stood looking at Magos Reproba. Reproba was partially sunken into the floor, his mechanical lower body out of sight. Reproba’s head didn’t move as the voice once again spoke. “Theolus, the Mechanicus has decided to assist your training by providing a simulated situation for you. We want to see how you deal with the situation, to assess the likelihood of your success during this mission.”

Theolus’ voice did not waiver when he spoke. “Only by imperfection can we fail him.”

The Magos’ head rotated to look at Theolus, “Yes of course, the training will commence within the hour. The latest Mechanicus ship has brought some suitable training material. Arco-Flagellants we will use to simulate Xenos. Their weapons will have the power fields disabled, and you will use special training rounds. The bio-mechanicals will attack along a programmed set of responses according to our data on Xenos species 43798. With their weapons un-powered, they will not be able to harm your marines, and with the special rounds, you will not be able to harm them. Successful attacks by the bio-mechanicals, will count as your troops being “dead”, and the same for your attacks. The Inquisitor Vellous has sent these along to assist in your training.”

Theolus, stood for a moment, and then commented. “We will not fail him.”


**********************************************
Squad Munus had deployed in Training Hulk 3, and was executing boarding action Gamma 03. The lead members of Munus, Master Sergeant Delit and Veteran Brother Ferus had taken point. They were covering the east west passes of X intersection Beta, when the Arcos were first sighted. Three of the bio-mechanicals were approaching from Ferus’ corridor and three more from Delits.

Theolus ordered the squad to move to the rally point in room lambda, and engage the bio-mechanicals with Brother Gelu’s heavy flamer.

Delit was performing the rear guard duties when the first Arco-Flagellant triggered it’s Hype. With the Drug Coursing through its body, it moved at mind numbing speeds. Delit, had backed into the room, prepared to side step and allow Gelu to fire down the hallway, engulfing the six approaching Arcos in simulated flames. As he prepared to side step, he instinctively activated his power sword and raised it to parry the attacking bio-mechanical. His reaction to the sudden powering of the Arco-Flagellants power whips. Delit, spoke a single word “Dedecus” before rapidly parrying the dervish’s attacks.

Behind him, the squad reacting to the key word ejected the simulation magazines and loaded live ammunition. The Arco’s weapons were not deactivated as had been planned. Squad Munus was now in a fight for their lives.

Delit parried attack after attack, waiting for the opening, and buying his squad time to switch their weapons. Finally, he drove home his attack and dispatched the attacking biomechanical. Without thinking he stepped to the side at the command of Theolus, moving without thinking, and Gelu’s flamer belched promethium down the hall at the five remaining bio-mechanicals. The members of Munus fired single shots into those demi-humans who made it into the room, while Delit switch his magazine.

Theolus’ voice sounded harsh within Delit’s helmet. “Secure the room; I will take second team with me to secure the objective.” Theolus turned to leave and his voice again was heard in Delit’s helmet, “The Emperor watches over us through you.”

The Members of the second team of Squad Munus followed Theolus out of the southern exit of room lambda, while first team set up to cover the northern entrance to the room. “Only by imperfection could they fail him.”

**********************************************
Librarian Theolus was back aboard the Mecahnicus’ station by training hour 30. His purposeful steps resounded through the halls he strode. His terminator armor was being repaired by the chapter’s armorer, a result of his efforts to hold four of the bio-mechanicals at bay while second team accomplished the training mission. In the end his delaying action had worked, and his team had activated the teleport homers that had recalled them to the waiting Aquila Puerilis battle barge.

Now though, his ire with the Magos needed to be expressed.

Far behind him, aboard the battle barge, squad Munus continued to train for the mission.

Through the door Theolus was marching towards, Reproba wondered at the rest of the shipment that had also arrived with the bio-mechanicals.

Transmit File 879823/)  Responce to Magos for requested assistance.

Date: 0812998.M41

Subject:  Authorization for assistance.

Rating: Crusade Code Gamma 

Cross ref to: High Marshal Helbrecht: Code HMH-01
Cross ref to: Marshal Carl-Lazarus, Master of the Crusade of Light: Code MCL-01

Magos, we have been directed, after careful consideration, by High Marshal Helbrecht, to provide you 
with all necessary support for you to accomplish you mission. The Black Templar Battle Barge “Legion”
can be dispatched to a location of your choice to deliver to you the supporting unit you requested at a 
time you desirer.

At this time we feel this mission rates security value Gamma; in response to this we are providing five 
of our Sword Brethren adorned with the chapter’s holy Tactical-Dreadnought armor. 

In order to batter down the gates of the enemy we are releasing our unit called “Emperors Hammers” to
your service. This unit has been at the for-front of many Crusades and battles and has served the Emperor
well, I’m sure they will perform equally for you.

Sword Brethren Rudolf 
Sword Brethren Georg 
Sword Brethren Ludwig
Sword Brethren Hess
Sword Brethren Sternfeld

As per there calling, all Sword Brethren are armed with the Chapter’s most holy Thunder-Hammers and
Storm Shields (let the enemy of man throw themselfs upon them). 

As requested; holo-pics of the unit will be provided and are forth-comming upon there return from current  action.

++Thought of the day: Prayer cleanses the soul, but pain cleanses the body++

Within the darkness of space the Black Templars Battle Barge “Legion” hung motionless, aboard all was still
and the mummer of prayer could be heard all around. Deep within the hull sat the Crusade Marshal
Carl-Lazarus and his Knightly council.

“Marshal, upon the cusp of battle you have been required to send away your best unit, this is an outrage!”

“Ease yourself Brother Rudolf, High Marshal Helbrecht is wise in many ways that extend beyond the
battlefield” answered Marshal Carl-Lazarus.

“Many Crusades have worked closely with the Adeptus Mechanicus, and they provide us critical support on
many worlds…..yet they do not hold the Emperor in the light they should, instead turning to there false
Machine-God and are not to be trusted.”

Just to speak of the Machine-God made Marshal Carl-Lazarus jaw clench and he made a mental note to
cleanse himself before evening prayers.

The gathering of his council settled at his statement and hung on his words.

“Many times the Adeptus Mechanicus has seen fit to request the assistance of the Emperors finest warriors under false pretence to fulfill there own secret agenda. High Marshal Helbrecht has seen through this ruse
and has decided to provide one of his most elite unit’s, a house guard, to appease the Adeptus Mechanicus and to also keep an eye on there true intentions and maybe gaining an advantage of knowledge over the Adeptus Mechanicus.”
Everyone stay calm! This is not happening!

I have pictures now. somewhat fuzzy, but they are the best I can do with what I have. I shall upload them immediately.

@REFUSE: are we allowed to write our own fluff for this? because I like the story you've done and would like to add my own.

Absolutely.
That is the key.
Even if you are not participating but want to help by writing, modelling, ideas fire away.

As a note.

The story will follow the Aquila Puerilis' preperation for the SH:AOD, and the forces of the Imperium who stand against them.

Feel free to fill in your chapter.

Subject: Vox-pics and updated roster

Sire,
It has come to my attention that the original roster we sent you was corrupted and some of the data was lost. I have re-sent the roster with the missing data filled in. It is also my pleasure to report to you that the routine armour maintenence has been completed and that Sergeant Balur and his squad mates are now in transit to your position. our vox capture equipment, though adequate and blessed, is not as good as that of some of our brothers. It is sufficient for our purposes though, and the best vox-captures we could get have been sent with this message.
