The Restless Sands - Action

Post by Falco Sanders on Sat Sep 16, 2017 6:31 pm

The journey to Restless aboard the Metalus Gravus has taken a few weeks, but as the end of the journey is in sight, hopes are high that it will have been worth it. You've seen little of Falco, tucked away in his quarters and in the bridge, readying his forces and suppressing the constant clamouring of the crew. You've all been given the finest quarters on the ship, asked to ready your weapons, armour and minds for the days ahead. Left alone to relax, read, eat, drink, scheme, tinker and whore in the upper decks, attended by fearful wide eyed servants who obey your every command. On the sixteenth day of the voyage, as the pleasures of aged amsec and fine food begin to dull, you feel the bowel emptying lurch of the ship exiting the warp. A few warning bells sound somewhere far away in the ship and in the private lounge you are all sitting in, the once sealed and bolted plasteel screens unseal, rise and reveal the comforting blackness of space and a dusty beige world floating before you, its small polar icecaps glistening in the sunlight. You have arrived at Restless.

Falco walks down into the lounge, straightening his hat, and takes a moment to admire the view. "Beautiful isn't it? I never get tired of spaceflight." He turns to you and claps his hands "Alright all... We're scanning the planet as we speak... we should have the readings shortly of some ideal places to set up a beachhead in a matter of minutes. Hours at worst. We'll go down on the bloody carnage, meros' thunderhawk and scope out any interesting sites and all that jazz. Should be an easy mission. Nevertheless, be sure to gear up properly. Oh, and I've been told you've been given your teleport homers by the crew already. Those will go off if you're in danger, so don't loose 'em. Take your complementary comm beads too. I think that's it... any questions whist we wait?"
A serf scurries up to Falco, and whispers something in his ear that immediately sours his mood. With a furrowed brow he takes a data slate off the man and begins studying its contents in depth, mumbling quietly to himself. "Hmm... Alright... There's apparently a... What? No... This shouldn't be here, this can't be right, surely?"

Meros affixes his new teleport homer upon his thigh behind his Pistol's holster, though his uneasy pair of eyes never shift from the Commissar. "What's the problem?"

Zielley's head appears from a pile of rugs, her eyes bloodshot, she coughs up some leftover vomit, gets up, dusts off, secures the teleport-thing with Bandages underneath her left upper arm and looks to Falco, unable to comprehend in full, what he's trying to say.

Senera wakes from his meditative prayer, yet remains standing like a statue in the Lounge. Having fixed his teleport homer to his left hand along with his Storm shield beforehand, he stands in utter silence.

On the 16 days aboard the Metalus Gravus he had only accomplished one thing in particular.
He had cleaned up and repaired his armor from the battle with the Khornate cult during his stay at the previous Hive where he helped an old friend; Notre Amicus track town a Tzeenchian sorcerer.
Indeed, it was Notre who put him upto this.... this crusade to conquer a new planet in the name of the Imperium and the Emperor. Finally, after a long time, he was fulfilling his purpose. Senera owed Notre a great gratitude.

The rest of his time aboard the ship was spen in mostly isolation either within his room reading or meditating and praying, or in the training room honing his skills.
Any contact that he had with the rest of the crew was when he was brought food and other necessities by the helpful servants, and when he was repairing and maintaining his equipment. Due to this Senera was still unfamilliar with the layout of the ship.

After the Commissar speaks his piece, Senera takes of the comm beads offered and return to his post.
Then, without moving his head, he looks at the Commissar to see what his distress is.

The world eater known as Segovax "The butcher" enters the lounge room with the clang of his armoured boots striking the decking, being the last one to arrive he walks past two serfs who recoil in fear, the Butchers random psychotic episodes leaving many of their number as blood paste needing to be scraped off the roof. Not making eye contact he takes a spot secluded from everyone else, his hands curling into fists methodically in rage and pain 'Make it quick, the nails torture me today' he growls through his helms vox.

Lucan sat in the far corner of the room, away from everyone else. No one had seen him eat or drink, nor sleep the entire time. Though he would wander off at times for several hours... His metalic plague doctor mask made a light inflection on each inhilation, the lenses of the eyes glowing a light green. He spoke not a word but simply lifted his head to look at Falco from across the room.

Runa looks out the window "Hmm. Now I'm wishing I had brought Armin with me on this." Turning to Falco "Thunder Hawks are traditionally not equipped to handle us mortals. I'd rather take my own ship, Times Might, which is. It's also equipped to handle Space Marines, aswell as it's a smaller target."

All: Falco puts up a hand to silence those speaking, and contemplates the data slate for a moment. "All... right... Um..."He rubs his chin in concern and furrows his brow more before shrugging. "There's a crippled mechanicus vessel in orbit. And when I say that... well, it's pretty much completely destroyed." He taps the slate  a few times, and the flickering pict feed appears on the large screen at the back of the lounge.



"The question is, what killed it? This system is supposed to have little more than feral orks in nothing that could take out such a well armed vessel... perhaps its gellar fields went down and it got washed up here but... I doubt it. In any case, I think I'd like to make an expedition over to it to find out what's going on with that, make sure we're safe and all. I suppose anybody who wants to come along can... Probably be quite dull if all goes well..."

"In any case, we should press on with landing and setting up. It'll take a while. Runa, the bloody carnage has ferried me safely through enough for me to trust its machine spirit. You'll be fine on it. That said... if you want to go down in your own ship, I don't think any of us would mind. I suppose more air support would be handy. Meros, I'm giving you command of that whilst I check out this ship. I'll take an Arvus down when we're done there. Set up a beacon as soon as you can. Somewhere high preferably... Oh and, land near the poles. It's not nice around the middle." He claps, looking optimistic "Right, that should be it. We'll all go to the hangar now I guess and get to our ships."

You get into a large lift room, larger than the lounge and big enough to fit a large tank in with ease. With thudding mechanical crunches, it begins to work its way down to the hangar, whilst you are left to ask questions and talk.

(OOC: Going with Falco will take you on a short side quest to the mechanicus ship before going down to Restless, going with Meros will send you directly to the surface of Restless without interruption. Both will have cool bits, and in the end everybody will end up on Restless an on the main story eventually, worry not.)

"Lets hope the adepts aboard that vessel didn't send out any calls for help, or we'll have some unwanted guests very soon." Meros grumbles, looking around at the assembled remains of the Ordo Relayus. "Whoever's coming to the surface with me, make your intentions clear now."

"I wish to go with the team to the Mechanicus vessel. I have some knowledge of technical systems and can identify valuable salvage."

"I too would like to go to the vessel. This way we can take my ship there and to the surface.
Plus, it has Inquisitorial access codes, which will allow us safe entrance to a hanger or docking bay"

I will travel directly to the surface. My skills are better used at range than in boarding actions.

After listening to the plan and listening to who is going where and after realizing that the surface expedition is currently undermanned, Senera makes his reply.
"I will join the expedition to the surface. Who shall have the honour of carrying the banner of the Imperium down to the surface?"

He might not e fully equipped for a ranged fight, but his shield can protect him against almost anything, his inferno can still be used at longer ranges, despite being less effective, and if need be he still has legs to charge the enemy who is firing at him from far away.

Segovax with a hiss of gas takes off his helmet, his face wild and unkempt with scars covering his face, one eye milky from one blade that got too close, he massages his temples to keep the butchers nails at bay 'Planet!...' he growls

The elevator grinds to a halt, and its metres thick steel doors slide open to the hangar. Within, lies the familiar sight of the blood angels thunder hawk 'The Bloody Carnage', and another ship, 'Times might', both attended by crews of servitors and wreathed in welding sparks and coolant mist.

"Well, looks like this is where we split off then. Runa, Lucan and Zielley are going with myself to that mechanicus vessel and Segovax, Meros, Norabder and Senera are going with Meros to the surface. Well... Good luck to you all."

(OOC: The RP will now split. The crew going with Meros will remain on this thread and await his post before proceeding. He will take over GMing the ground team, and this thread. My crew will follow me down to the ship, and I will GM that on a separate thread I am opening now, and will link on the discord.)

(I'll do a proper GM post for next turn, as I can't add more to what Falco has written already for you.)

"All aboard, cousins, for a great bounty awaits us - provided none of you take any offense to the idea of cleansing a few  shrivrlled Ork ferals." Meros laughs, with a clearly mordacious tone. He gestures farewell to the Commissar, as he boards his Thunderhawk's open troop-bay and promptly proceeds to the cockpit.

"The filthy Xenos will perish in the name of the Imeprium" Senera says as he gets into the thunderhawk.
Senera gets into the Thunderhawk, and after a second, notices the heretic in their midst.
He then quickly get his weapons ready and points his hammer at the World Eater.
"By the Emperor...., HERETIC SCUM!"
Senera then addresses Meros, "In the name of the Emperor and the throne, why is there a filthy heretic in this holy mission of the Imperium?!"
