  1. ResilientGM     The reveille sounds, and the camp bursts into life outside. The guard changes outside your squad's tent, and a junior commissar arrives not long after.
  2.         ResilientGM     "Rise, and ready yourselves."
  3.         ResilientGM     Sgt Eberstark is the first on his feet, "Sir" he salutes.
  4.         Kass_Yonova     Kass stands and gives the Junior Commissar a salute before donning his boots and armor.
  5.         ResilientGM     Arthur snaps to attention, and begins his self-grooming.
  6.         Victrus_Macharius       stands and salutes before gathering his armor and boots
  7.         Kass_Yonova     "We getting our debrief you think?"
  8.         ResilientGM     Young Koeln robotically dresses himself, a blank expression on his face. The events of the past week have had quite an effect on him.
  9.         Victrus_Macharius       "That, or we're getting fucked soon!"
  10.         ResilientGM     Satisfied that his squad is ready, the sergeant turns to you.
  11.         ResilientGM     "Men, it has been an honor."
  12.         ResilientGM     He turns now to face the Commissar, "Sir, the squ--"
  13.         ResilientGM     He is interrupted by the Commissar, "Sgt Eberstark, you are to be restrained for the following proceedings."
  14.         ResilientGM     The guards behind him slap manacles on Eberstark, and take him to see the Captain.
  15.         ResilientGM     "The rest of you follow close behind."
  16.         Kass_Yonova     Kass watches his NCO as he is marched out of the tent, before following behind the commissar. This is now three Sergeants the squad has gone through, Kass notes that his squad has now gone through two NCO's.
  17.         ResilientGM     Instead of the more ceremonial disciplinary proceedings, you are taken into a command bunker, where you are handed over to the guards inside, as if an exchange of prisoners were taking place.
  18.         ResilientGM     They seat the sergeant, and ask you to stand behind him, as the Captain enters.
  19.         ResilientGM     His aides follow close behind, along with an adept of the Departmento Munitorum.
  20.         Kass_Yonova     Kass stands behind and to the the right of Eberstark, at parade rest.
  21.         Victrus_Macharius       Victrus stands to the left of Kass, at parade rest.
  22.         ResilientGM     Captain Zieten: "This..." he extends his hand out to his side, and an aide hands him a parchment -a summary of events, no doubt- which he lays on the table in front of him.
  23.         ResilientGM     "This is very problematic, Sergeant."
  24.         ResilientGM     Zieten: "An entire company. Lost," he looks up and makes eye-contact with each of you and then back at Eberstark.
  25.         ResilientGM     "Not a trace of them. As if they never existed."
  26.         ResilientGM     "What have you to say on the events that took place during your mission?"
  27.         ResilientGM     Eberstark: "Captain, I realize this is... /problematic/, but I'm afraid I'm not at liberty to say."
  28.         ResilientGM     Captain Zieten clears his throat.
  29.         ResilientGM     He looks over to the adept and then back at Kass.
  30.         ResilientGM     Zieten: "Corporal,"
  31.         Kass_Yonova     "Sir."
  32.         ResilientGM     "what say you to this rather suspect disappearance?"
  33.         Kass_Yonova     "It is as the Sergeant says sir, we are not at liberty to say."
  34.         ResilientGM     "I needn't remind you, gentlemen, that aiding deserters is punishable by death alone to guardsmen of Prithia."
  35.         ResilientGM     The adept of the Munitorum nods in agreement to this, a pathetic look of feigned seriousness on his face.
  36.         Kass_Yonova     "It wasn't desertion, sir..."
  37.         ResilientGM     "Then what was it? What killed your comrades, and why were only their bodies recovered?"
  38.         Kass_Yonova     Kass coughs in a an attempt to clear his throat. "They were, uh, acquired, by higher powers than us, sir."
  39.         ResilientGM     A man interrupts, you recognize him as an aide of the Colonel. Someone you've met previously, but never truly noticed. He's wearing the Winged Skull medal - awarded for exemplary leadership in the battlefield. His, however, is different. The small skull on the center is flanked by two crimson columns on either side.
  40.         ResilientGM     Iconography recently familiar to you.
  41.         ResilientGM     "Captain. A word, if you please," he says.
  42.         Kass_Yonova     Kass stares at the aide, the medal, then back at the aide.
  43.         ResilientGM     Zieten: "Can't this wait? I am addressing the matter of the lost Company."
  44.         ResilientGM     "Sir, the Colonel insists."
  45.         ResilientGM     The two leave, the adept tries to follow, but it told to stay.
  46.         ResilientGM     Eberstark: "Tell me I'm not the only one who saw that."
  47.         Kass_Yonova     "No I saw it, and I can't remember the last time I've been this nervous, not even when under direct fire."
  48.         ResilientGM     "Saw what?" the adept inquires.
  49.         ResilientGM     Before anyone can return an answer, both the captain and the Colonel's aid return.
  50.         Kass_Yonova     "Something involving our CO."
  51.         Kass_Yonova     ^^^^REDACTED^^^^
  52.         ResilientGM     The Captain looks as though he's just been given some concerning news he's yet to fully process.
  53.         ResilientGM     "The loss of an entire company is an unforgivable offense to the war effort. As such, Sgt. Eberstark, you are to face a firing-squad. You shall be handed to the Commissariat. Squad dismissed."
  54.         Kass_Yonova     Kass' mouth hangs open for a moment. He gives the sergeant a sad look, before making the sign of the aquila and going back to his tent. Kass needs a drink.
  55.         Victrus_Macharius       stands there in shock for a moment at what has just happened. He proceeds to follows Kass out before giving the Sargent one last look and leaves with his head down, feeling like shit.
  56.         ResilientGM     Koeln: "Just like that?"
  57.         Kass_Yonova     "Yep." Kass is running his hands through his hair in frustration. "Welcome to the Guard."
  58.         ResilientGM     "We were under orders... orders..."
  59.         Victrus_Macharius       "There isn't much we could of done, even if we tried."
  60.         Mathias_Ferrus  A short time after their arrival at the tent, a somewhat young looking Guardsman enters, his uniform and equipment in pristine condition. On closer inspection, he seems to bear the insignia of a sergeant. "Gentlemen."
  61.         Gabriel_Laski   I approach the tent and poke my head in "Is Sgt. Ferrus here?
  62.         Kass_Yonova     Kass reluctantly gets up and salutes the squad new Sergeant. "Sir."
  63.         Gabriel_Laski   I salute behind him
  64.         Gabriel_Laski   Salutes behind Sgt. Ferrus
  65.         Victrus_Macharius       gets up giving the sergeant a look over and salutes.
  66.         Kass_Yonova     "You're our new Sarge, huh?"
  67.         Gru_Persay      enters the tent.
  68.         Gabriel_Laski   "Sgt Ferrus? I was sent to speak with you. Private Laski, reporting for duty"
  69.         Mathias_Ferrus  looks back at the trooper who arrived after him. "That would be me, guardsman." He then returns the salutes. "At ease. Now, gentlemen, I heard about some of the circumstances behind my assignment here, feel free to take some moments if you feel the need for it. Now, we are going to be under 1st Platoon for the time being and as part of it we are being sent to a city in order to
  70.         Mathias_Ferrus  provide assistance to some forces already engaged in the area."
  71.         -->|    Sheamus (chatzilla@sux-4BBCA42F.lightspeed.lnngmi.sbcglobal.net) has joined #resilient
  72.         Gabriel_Laski   Gestures to his comrade
  73.         Gabriel_Laski   "This is Pvt. Edgar Zane"
  74.         =-=     Sheamus is now known as Animus
  75.         Kass_Yonova     Kass nods to him.
  76.         Mathias_Ferrus  nods. "Be ready to report under 1st in ten."
  77.         Gabriel_Laski   "Does anybody need packing?"
  78.         Gru_Persay      "Sgt. Ferrus? Pleasure to meet you."
  79.         Victrus_Macharius       begins to gather his things
  80.         Animus  enters the tent, pushing the flaps away with his telekinesis
  81.         Mathias_Ferrus  "Wish that were actually true, Mr. Persay."
  82.         Animus  "Hello."
  83.         Gabriel_Laski   "Is that a...."
  84.         Kass_Yonova     Kass salutes before turning to his cot and gathering all of his gear. After several minutes of organizing and packing, Kass had all of his gear and personal items in order. He then sits back down waiting for his fellows to finish.
  85.         Gru_Persay      "Meaning what?"
  86.         Animus  "Psyker? Yes,"
  87.         Victrus_Macharius       looks over to see Animus, "Welcome back Animus, how was your day
  88.         Animus  begins to pack
  89.         Animus  begins to pack
  90.         Gabriel_Laski   freezes
  91.         Animus  "Good, people muttering mutant and so on."
  92.         Gabriel_Laski   "Aren't you supposed to have... you know. Guards?"
  93.         Victrus_Macharius       "So a normal day then?"
  94.         Kass_Yonova     Kass points at Koeln.
  95.         Mathias_Ferrus  "And I take it you must be our own little ticking piece of the immaterium. No more whimsy uses of your... "gifts" while I'm commanding this squad."
  96.         Animus  "Pretty much!"
  97.         Animus  "Whimsy?"
  98.         Animus  "That's a little off I think."
  99.         Gabriel_Laski   "Nobody said anything about no psykers
  100.         Mathias_Ferrus  "Unnecesary, psyker."
  101.         Mathias_Ferrus  "You seem to have a nice pair of hands, use them."
  102.         Gabriel_Laski   keeps his hand hovering near his laspistol. And his other hand near his knife,
  103.         Animus  "Well, i'm here to help if you like it or not."
  104.         Gru_Persay      "The Psyker has been useful in our past encounters against the enemy."
  105.         Mathias_Ferrus  "As long as you don't put us at risk, the help will be appreciated. Just be careful."
  106.         Animus  "Someone cares!"
  107.         Animus  lifts his packed equipment in his backpack onto his back
  108.         Animus  "What else should I carry?"
  109.         Victrus_Macharius       "Wow Gru, I didn't think you had feelings that deep for Animus?"
  110.         Gabriel_Laski   goes out of his way to keep distance between the psyker and himself
  111.         Mathias_Ferrus  then makes a trigger pulling motion. "Exercise the equivalent your kind have to trigger discipline and we'll get along fine." He then looks around the tent. "Everyone ready?"
  112.         Gabriel_Laski   "Yes sergeant"
  113.         Gru_Persay      "Macharius... if you do not want to end up like Meat, I suggest you keep your mouth shut."
  114.         Animus  salutes as crisply as he could manage
  115.         Mathias_Ferrus  nods before leading the way once everyone was ready to move.
  116.         ResilientGM     First platoon is gathered by the mustering grounds, where you spot Lieutenant Stannis briefing his NCOs.
  117.         Victrus_Macharius       "Sure, what ever floats your boat Gru."
  118.         ResilientGM     Several squads stand at the ready, awaiting their commands, in parallel singe-file lines.
  119.         Animus  "This is going to be fun!"
  120.         Mathias_Ferrus  approaches the Lieutenant. "Squad Ferrus reporting for duty, Sir."
  121.         ResilientGM     "Sergeant Ferrus, glad to see you in good health." he motions you to step forward and join into the brief.
  122.         Mathias_Ferrus  pays close attention to the brief.
  123.         ResilientGM     "3rd Company is spread out among these fronts, here..." he points to a map.
  124.         ResilientGM     "Now while we would love to join our comrades in either of these exciting fronts," a few sergeants chuckle at that, "we are in fact being reassigned to a supporting role here."
  125.         ResilientGM     He points to an urbanized area far beyond the lines titled "logistics".
  126.         Animus  "Seems fun."
  127.         ResilientGM     "It's a glorious mess, without many distinct enemy lines. Several districts are currently being fought over. It seems they're in need of actual soldiers, so the Colonel has generously agreed to deploy us."
  128.         Animus  "Actual soldier?"
  129.         Gru_Persay      "Shut it, Animus."
  130.         Gru_Persay      "Shut your vox hole."
  131.         Animus  sighs and steps back
  132.         Mathias_Ferrus  subtly stares at Animus before refocusing on the briefing.
  133.         Gabriel_Laski   shivers in his boots from the psykers presence
  134.         Kass_Yonova     shakes his head as he falls into line parallel to the other squads.
  135.         Gru_Persay      disables Utility mechadendrite.
  136.         Animus  smiles and waves at Gabriel
  137.         Gabriel_Laski   's widen, and he struggles not to step back out of formation
  138.         Gabriel_Laski   eyes*
  139.         Victrus_Macharius       thinks to him self, "I wonder how long before Animus reads our new friends minds?"
  140.         ResilientGM     "Supply lines have been secured and rail along the Western Coast is functional thanks to those red-robed freaks, Emperor help them. We will be transported as far as we can through these lines, where the 115th will graciously provide further transport into the fray proper. Sergeants, be sure to have the following channels ready for your vox-operators" he hands you a small strip of paper with numbers printed.
  141.         ResilientGM     "And now, for the Emperor, let's bring this planet back into His Holy light."
  142.         Mathias_Ferrus  takes his piece of paper. "His will be done."
  143.         ResilientGM     He salutes, and takes his leave. NCOs return to their lines shouting orders.
  144.         Animus  glimpses into the lieutenants mind
  145.         Mathias_Ferrus  returns to his respective squad. "Alright, gents. Good news, we are getting a lift most of the way. Better news, we are likely to engage the enemy."
  146.         ResilientGM     Lieutenant Stannis appears uniquely focused. Memories of his previous 2 campaigns informing his decisions. He is confident of victory.
  147.         Animus  "Gives us the chance to show these heretics the Emperor's grace."
  148.         Victrus_Macharius       "Good, been looking forward to taking out more enemies."
  149.         Mathias_Ferrus  "Alright, which of you is to serve as my vox-op?"
  150.         Gabriel_Laski   "What are we fighting sir?"
  151.         Animus  "Can I do it?"
  152.         ResilientGM     A young man, 18-19 years of age, tall, thin frame, fair skin and big deep brown eyes. He’s just a kid, at first glance.
  153.         ResilientGM     "Private Vorgen, sir!"
  154.         ResilientGM     He awkwardly salutes.
  155.         Mathias_Ferrus  smiles and hands him over a slip of paper. "Get these channels ready, Private."
  156.         Mathias_Ferrus  "Now, let's get moving, gents! We are new and we need to make a good fist impression!"
  157.         Kass_Yonova     "Shall we move to our transport, sarge? There is a war on, after all."
  158.         ResilientGM     "Right away, sergeant," he diligently begins to tune the machine, as he walks close to your formation.
  159.         Gabriel_Laski   "Sir?"
  160.         Gabriel_Laski   "what are we fighting?"
  161.         Gru_Persay      "Heretical Separatists."
  162.         Mathias_Ferrus  "There we go. Happy?"
  163.         Gabriel_Laski   gives a sigh of relief
  164.         ResilientGM     The squads around you all ready up and move along to the rail station.
  165.         Mathias_Ferrus  leads the way even more
  166.         ResilientGM     The priesthood of Mars has adopted the station and keeps it diligently running.
  167.         Animus  starts to whistle
  168.         Kass_Yonova     follows the sergeant and the rest of the squad to the rail station.
  169.         ResilientGM     Supplies are loaded onto the impressive metal beast and men climb on board by platoon.
  170.         Gabriel_Laski   grows suspicious that the whistling is a method of casting some malevolent spell.
  171.         Gru_Persay      follows and says "Meat. Follow." After a moment of silence, Gru says "....Oh. right." He follows behind the squad.
  172.         ResilientGM     +Comms check. Squads, acknowledge+
  173.         Animus  "It's not the same."
  174.         Victrus_Macharius       follows, "Yea its going to suck not having Meat around."
  175.         Mathias_Ferrus  Answers into the vox. +Squad Ferrus reads loud and clear.+
  176.         ResilientGM     +Ferrus?+ another voice asks
  177.         Animus  "We should have a funeral."
  178.         Gru_Persay      "We will honor the fallen by winning this win."
  179.         Mathias_Ferrus  +What frequency is this?+ He asks into the vox, confused. He then looks at Vorgen, puzzled.
  180.         ResilientGM     +Private Gilliam. Junior Medicae Officer. I'm told to report to your squad. They... have servitors following me, and I'd rather they find their master sooner than later+
  181.         Kass_Yonova     "We've mourned our dead, let's not dwell on it. We have a duty to fulfill."
  182.         ResilientGM     +Approaching the station now+
  183.         Mathias_Ferrus  +Ah, I see, get moving or you'll miss the fun."
  184.         Gru_Persay      +Servitors?+
  185.         ResilientGM     Not long after, you spot the uncomfortable medic, briskly walking forward, trying to maintain a distance from the awkwardly-walking figures behind him.
  186.         Victrus_Macharius       looks to his comrade Arthur, "How are you holding up Arthur?"
  187.         ResilientGM     Arthur: "I'll be alright. I had the bolter loaded ahead of us."
  188.         Victrus_Macharius       "Good, it should come in handy today."
  189.         Animus  "Koeln, how are you doing buddy?"
  190.         Gabriel_Laski   Takes the time waiting on the train to check his weapons.
  191.         Kass_Yonova     Kass motions for his new assistant to follow him onto the train.
  192.         Gabriel_Laski   He makes a point of always having one weapon to grab in case the psyker attacks
  193.         Mathias_Ferrus  "This trip might take a bit. Why don't you all tell me a bit about yourselves? Any concerns and such are also welcome."
  194.         ResilientGM     The squad is asked to board just after the Lieutenant.
  195.         Mathias_Ferrus  boards right after
  196.         Animus  boards
  197.         Gabriel_Laski   "Sergeant. Are you sure you trust the... psyker" Gabriel whispers to Ferrus
  198.         Gru_Persay      orders the Servitors to reply with their base information.
  199.         Gabriel_Laski   boards
  200.         ResilientGM     One of the servitors stops in front of the trooper directing the boarding, and eerily stares into his eyes.
  201.         Animus  "I'm concerned that as soon as i manifest a power good trooper Gabriel here is going to give me an extra hole."
  202.         Victrus_Macharius       boards
  203.         Gabriel_Laski   thinks to himself "The psyker is already a whole. And asshole"
  204.         ResilientGM     "Whoa!" the trooper raises his laspistol
  205.         Gabriel_Laski   (an asshole*)
  206.         Mathias_Ferrus  "As long as our guns and other offensive meassure are aimed at the enemy, he's alright in my book." He says while lowering the jumpy guardsman's laspistol.
  207.         Victrus_Macharius       looks to Animus, "So Anumus, read anyone's mind today?"
  208.         Animus  "Here and there."
  209.         Gabriel_Laski   "If you say so sergeant."
  210.         Kass_Yonova     "You'll have no concerns from me, so long as I have ample medical supplies to keep the squad patched up."
  211.         ResilientGM     Gilliam: "And the clarity of mind to do so, one hopes."
  212.         Gru_Persay      uses Techna Lingua to order the Servitors to not bother the guardsmen.
  213.         Animus  "Can we get a squad mascot?"
  214.         Mathias_Ferrus  "You kinda are our squad mascot."
  215.         Victrus_Macharius       "What about the creature you had awhile back?"
  216.         Gabriel_Laski   thinks to himself "How about your corpse on a flagpole for a mascot"
  217.         Animus  "I heard that."
  218.         ResilientGM     The servitors board, and the rest of the squads follow in, too. Soon, the doors are slid shut.
  219.         Gabriel_Laski   eyes go wide and he freezes.
  220.         Kass_Yonova     Kass quirks his eyebrow at the newcomer. "Speaking of that, I need to know how much experience you have in the field, Gilliam was it?"
  221.         Gabriel_Laski   unsure of weather or not animus was talking him him
  222.         Mathias_Ferrus  "Animus, whatever it is you've been doing, cut it out."
  223.         Animus  "Sorry sir."
  224.         Gabriel_Laski   becomes semi catatonic
  225.         ResilientGM     Laud hailers across the train's carts announce your departures, and the machine begins to move with a low hum.
  226.         ResilientGM     Gilliam: "Protege of CMO Feldmann himself, Mr. Yonova."
  227.         Victrus_Macharius       looks over to Gabriel, "You all right?"
  228.         Gru_Persay      starts praying to the Omnissiah and to the Train's Machine Spirit.
  229.         Mathias_Ferrus  looks at Kass. "Hey, could you cheek on your new squadmate?" He motions to Gabriel.
  230.         ResilientGM     A deafening horn echoes throughout the station, as the train picks up speed, suddenly.
  231.         Kass_Yonova     "Of course, Sarge." Kass examines Gabriel.
  232.         Kass_Yonova     shrugs
  233.         Animus  "I'm sure mt presence isn't helping."
  234.         Kass_Yonova     "Sarge, he's acclimating to his new 'surroundings'. He'll be fine in a couple of hours."
  235.         Mathias_Ferrus  "Well, he better get used to it. And thank you, Kass."
  236.         Kass_Yonova     Kass turns back to Gilliam. "Protege of Feldmann, huh? How is he? Haven't worked with him in some time. Didn't see you in triage or the operation theater, where were you?"
  237.         ResilientGM     The train stops at two locations and finally arrives at the location of your destination. The trip takes just over two hours, and when you do arrive, battlefield conditions are clear.
  238.         ResilientGM     Small convoys of transports from the 115th pick up and take supplies to the front. Some taking on squads in whatever room they have.
  239.         ResilientGM     Lieutenant Stannis: "Find a way into the city! Radio in when there!" he calls out before disembarking with his own squad.
  240.         Mathias_Ferrus  gets off the train. "Come on, lads. Let's see if we can find ourselves a lift."
  241.         Gabriel_Laski   follows, still recovering
  242.         Animus  follows
  243.         Victrus_Macharius       follows
  244.         Kass_Yonova     checks over his lasgun as he disembarks from the train and follows the squad.
  245.         Gru_Persay      follows with his servitors behind him.
  246.         ResilientGM     A couple of Valkyries fly overhead, returning to base from a fire-support run, their engines howling.
  247.         Animus  "I wonder when we will see combat."

  259.         Gru_Persay      "It is beautiful, my brother. For the Omnissiah." and bows as well.
  260.         Gru_Persay      angrily responds "No!"
  261.         Kass_Yonova     "Since when did you get favors, Gru?"

  272.         Animus  "Seriously, i'm not going to use this camo cloak
  273.         Victrus_Macharius       "Ill take it, would be useful."
  274.         Gru_Persay      commands his servitors into the Chimera and enters the vehicle.
  275.         Animus  hands it over
  276.         Animus  enters the Chimera
  277.         Victrus_Macharius       takes the cloak from Animus.
  278.         Victrus_Macharius       enters the chimera
  279.         Victrus_Macharius       "Thanks Animus for the Cloak."
  280.         Kass_Yonova     Kass boards the Chimera and straps in. He then hands the extra medikit to Gilliam after he straps in. "We'll be needing the extra later, I'm sur."
  281.         Animus  "Anytime, hopefully you find it useful
  282.         Victrus_Macharius       "I have a coupe of things in mind."
  283.         Gru_Persay      yells "For the love of the Omnissiah, get in the Chimera."
  284.         Gabriel_Laski   gets in the chimera
  285.         ResilientGM     The squad inside, the chimera's hind doors are closed, and the engines roar into action.
  286.         ResilientGM     It forms up with one of the convoys heading into the city.
  287.         Gabriel_Laski   gets on the turret
  288.         Animus  "Can I use the turret?"
  289.         Victrus_Macharius       "Gabriel, what are you doing?"
  290.         Gabriel_Laski   "It's a big gun... I like big guns"
  291.         Gabriel_Laski   frowns and sits back down
  292.         Gru_Persay      lights a candle and places it in the Incense burner.
  293.         Gru_Persay      "Toll the Great Bell Once!
  294.         Gru_Persay      Pull the Lever forward to engage the

  299.         Gru_Persay      With push of Button fire the Engine
  300.         ResilientGM     Several minutes into the journey, the formation breaks up, and the chimeras travel with some distance between them. The small vibrations change as the tracks hit paved roads.
  301.         Gru_Persay      And spark Turbine into life..."
  302.         Gru_Persay      "Toll the Great Bell Thrice!
  303.         Gru_Persay      Sing Praise to the
  304.         Gru_Persay      God of All Machines"
  305.         Kass_Yonova     "So how is Feldmann, Gilliam?" Kass asks as he goes over his medical gear.
  306.         ResilientGM     Outside, you can see the ruins of heavily bombed hab blocks, rubble, and sandbag emplacements - abandoned, as the front moved up.
  307.         ResilientGM     Sounds of distant explosions echo throughout the city buildings as you get further into it, closer to the lines.
  308.         Animus  "The sweet sound of people dying."
  309.         ResilientGM     "Can't take you in much further! Prepare to disembark!"
  310.         Animus  gets ready to move out
  311.         Victrus_Macharius       gets off the autocannon
  312.         ResilientGM     The chimera comes to an abrupt halt, and the hind doors are opened.

  326.         Gabriel_Laski   follows
  327.         Animus  follows
  328.         Kass_Yonova     takes a knee next to a wall to consult the maps given out for this city.
  329.         Gru_Persay      follows with his servitors behind him.
  330.         Kass_Yonova     "Find some cover while I figure out our route."
  331.         Gabriel_Laski   takes cover next to kass
  332.         ResilientGM     The map reveals a secondary rendezvous point "Rendezvous Adm." approximately 2 kilometers from your position.
  333.         ResilientGM     A wide avenue can lead you there, past the ruins of a demolished hospital.
  334.         Kass_Yonova     folds the map and puts it back into one of his tunics pockets. "Alright, follow me, and keep your eyes open, I've heard some nasty feck about urban combat."
  335.         Kass_Yonova     Kass leads the squad down the wide avenue towards the demolished hospital.
  336.         Animus  reaches out and continually scans for enemies
  337.         Gabriel_Laski   follows saying 'I'm no stranger to street combat sarge, just not with weapons like these"
  338.         Kass_Yonova     "I'm a corporal, Gab."
  339.         Gabriel_Laski   "Sorry corporal"
  340.         ResilientGM     The darkened skies, then open up with ferocity.
  341.         Victrus_Macharius       "Yes sir," Victrus say as he follows with Aurthur and himself pushing the Heavy Bolter forward

  343.         Animus  "Need help with the gun?"
  344.         Victrus_Macharius       "Sure but keep your eye out for anything."
  345.         ResilientGM     +Prithian elements be advised. Cadian forces have broken and are falling back.+
  346.         Animus  helps them push the gun
  347.         Kass_Yonova     "Must have hit some big shite if they broke."
  348.         Gabriel_Laski   "I've fought fuckin gangsters man, I wasn't trained for this shit"
  349.         Gru_Persay      "Stay calm and alert. The Omnissiah is with us."
  350.         Animus  "You'll be fine if you keep your head."
  351.         Victrus_Macharius       "What Gru and Animus said."
  352.         Gabriel_Laski   "Cadian pussies!"
  353.         ResilientGM     The avenue ahead is completely blocked by a collapsed building.
  354.         Victrus_Macharius       "Plus, we got my heavy bolter here."
  355.         ResilientGM     Animus senses the presence of several souls on the other side of the ruins.
  356.         Animus  "I sense some people on the other side of these ruins, keep sharp."
  357.         Animus  "I gotta stop pushing and focus, sorry."
  358.         Gabriel_Laski   "Can I get the camo cloak and I'll scout it?"
  359.         Animus  stops pushing the gun
  360.         Kass_Yonova     "Alright, Gabriel, find a way up the ruins and see who's on the other side. Might be friendly, or not."
  361.         Animus  "should i go?"
  362.         Gru_Persay      commands his servitors to stop.
  363.         Victrus_Macharius       "Sure" stops pushing the bolter and hands Gabriel the Cloak.
  364.         ResilientGM     The servitors come to a halt. One of them following Laski with his eyes.
  365.         Gabriel_Laski   "Thanks"
  366.         Animus  "lead the way trooper."
  367.         Gabriel_Laski   puts on the cloak
  368.         Gabriel_Laski   climbs the collapsed building
  369.         Kass_Yonova     "Only Gabriel is going."
  370.         Gru_Persay      "Animus, stay put."
  371.         Animus  "Aww."
  372.         Victrus_Macharius       checks the heavy bolter and his las weapons
  373.         Gabriel_Laski   climbs the building and looks on the other side to see what is there
  374.         ResilientGM     A small squad of men shelter themselves from the rain. They aren't particularly well-armed, look tired and battered, and do not wear the Prithian colors, though the Aquila is visible.
  375.         Victrus_Macharius       +Gabriel, what are you seeing from up there?+
  376.         Gabriel_Laski   whispers on comms +Small group of men, lightly armed, exhausted. I see the Aquila but I don't recognize their uniforms+
  377.         Animus  +I'm going to move up and see if I can get some information.+
  378.         Animus  moves up till he is within range of his powers
  379.         Gabriel_Laski   aims at the mystery troopers counting the number of men
  380.         Gabriel_Laski   +Beige jumpers and green armour+
  381.         ResilientGM     Visions of a terrible engagement flood one of the men's minds. Animus picks up in vivid detail the terror in his mind as a massive ball of fire consumes an entire platoon, and heavy fire surrounds the troops around him. An explosion hits the building nearby, and then another. The metal beams protest as if squealing, and the building then gives way.
  382.         Animus  pushes to see if he can uncover anything else
  383.         ResilientGM     One thing is certain. They are loyal to the Emperor. His mind is filled with prayers to Him for mercy and protection.
  384.         ResilientGM     6 men are visible to Laski.
  385.         Animus  breaks the connection and sits down, tired.
  386.         Gabriel_Laski   +Six of them+
  387.         Animus  +They are with us.+
  388.         Kass_Yonova     +With us?+
  389.         Gabriel_Laski   +Not sure, they look like assholes+
  390.         Animus  +They serve the Emperor+
  391.         Kass_Yonova     +You're sure of this?+
  392.         Gabriel_Laski   +Every asshole and his mother serves the emperor. But not all of them serve the imperium+
  393.         Gru_Persay      +I would advise caution. If they see a large group approaching them, they might open fire out of fear.+
  394.         ResilientGM     Vorgen: "Corporal, orders are to capture or execute the deserters," he says, the muffled chatter of transmissions flooding his Vox, audible to you.
  395.         Victrus_Macharius       +Agreed+
  396.         ResilientGM     "Patching you through, Corporal."
  397.         Kass_Yonova     +Gabriel get back down here.+
  398.         Gabriel_Laski   +Yes Corporal+
  399.         ResilientGM     +Prithian Vanguard is acting as reinforcement. They're still behind.+
  400.         Gabriel_Laski   I climb back down
  401.         Animus  returns to the group
  402.         ResilientGM     +Then we're in agreement. Prithian elements will handle deserters encountered.+
  403.         Animus  "So are these deserters?"
  404.         Kass_Yonova     "They aren't running, are they? If anything they're taking cover."
  405.         Kass_Yonova     "Let's find a way around and link up with them, if anything we can get them back into the fight."
  406.         Animus  "I might need to rest for a moment."
  407.         Kass_Yonova     consults the maps again for a way around.
  408.         Victrus_Macharius       "I think it would be best if we don't all go at once."
  409.         ResilientGM     +This is Lieutenant Stannis. 1st Platoon will NOT be obeying those orders. Fire on contact and proceed to abandoned Administratum building. We cannot afford to delay!+
  410.         Kass_Yonova     "Well scratch that. Let's move on then."
  411.         Gru_Persay      "Should we move forward or waste ammo?"
  412.         Kass_Yonova     "God-Emperor have mercy on their souls."
  413.         Victrus_Macharius       "Yes sir" and begins to push the bolter again
  414.         Animus  "Well, there is always rest afterwards."
  415.         Gabriel_Laski   moves forward, going from cover to cover
  416.         Animus  "I could start the attack by possessing one of them."
  417.         Kass_Yonova     finds a new route towards the Administratum building.
  418.         Animus  "Confuse them."
  419.         Animus  follows Kass
  420.         Gru_Persay      orders his multitask servitor to help push the Heavy Bolter.
  421.         Animus  +Any thoughts on my idea?+
  422.         Gru_Persay      follows with his combat servitors on his sides.
  423.         Kass_Yonova     "Possessing who? The enemy?"
  424.         Gru_Persay      +It's not worth the time or effort+
  425.         Animus  +Building on my front right, I can sense movement.+
  426.         Gabriel_Laski   +Who has explosives?+
  427.         Kass_Yonova     halts immediately and signals for everyone to get down and take cover.
  428.         Gru_Persay      commands his servitors to halt.
  429.         Animus  gets down
  430.         Victrus_Macharius       stops
  431.         Gru_Persay      +Animus, where are they headed?+
  432.         ResilientGM     Your comrades take cover, weapons ready.
  433.         Gabriel_Laski   takes cover, peeking around the corner
  434.         Animus  +No idea, just movement.+
  435.         Kass_Yonova     +Care to try your hand at more scouting, Gab?+
  436.         Victrus_Macharius       turns the heavy bolter towards the building.
  437.         Gabriel_Laski   +why not+
  438.         Gabriel_Laski   +Quiet scouting? or fun scouting?+
  439.         Gru_Persay      takes cover and readies the auto gun.
  440.         Gabriel_Laski   +A shiny thing came out of the OH SHIT+
  441.         Gru_Persay      "GRENADE!"
  442.         Kass_Yonova     "Hit the dirt!"
  443.         Victrus_Macharius       takes cover behind the heavy bolter
  444.         Animus  quickly throws the grenade back into the hole it rolled out of
  445.         Animus  -using his godly brain powers
  446.         ResilientGM     The device goes off inside with a powerful flash, inside the building. All the glass around shatters, and a deafening noise assaults your senses.
  447.         Gabriel_Laski   drops my lasgun and charges into the building flailing with the chainsword
  448.         Kass_Yonova     motions violently to take firing positions against the building and prepare to storm it.
  449.         Gru_Persay      orders the Pugnis-class Combat Servitor to assist Gabriel.
  450.         Gabriel_Laski   shouting battlecries he himself cannot hear
  451.         Victrus_Macharius       gets on the bolter and get it ready
  452.         Gru_Persay      charges with his Omnissian axe.
  453.         ResilientGM     Inside, one of the assailants lies on the floor, he was too close to the blast and his eardrums have burst, his eyes wide shut.
  454.         ResilientGM     At least two other men have dropped their weapons and are holding their ears in pain.
  455.         Kass_Yonova     follows in behind Gru.
  456.         Animus  is currently lying facedown napping
  457.         Gabriel_Laski   cuts him in half at the waist with the chainsword
  458.         Gabriel_Laski   smiling with glee
  459.         Gru_Persay      grabs the unarmed man with the manipulator mechadendrite.
  460.         Gabriel_Laski   the inaudible engine of the chainsword making the experience unique.
  461.         Kass_Yonova     finishes off the other prone enemy with a lasbolt to the forehead.
  462.         Gru_Persay      hand signals Yonova to warn about another person in the next room.
  463.         Kass_Yonova     Kass gives him a thumbs up and shoulders his lasgun.
  464.         Gru_Persay      orders Pugnis-class Combat Servitor to breach the room.
  465.         Animus  struggles to his feet and looks around
  466.         Victrus_Macharius       see Animus get up and signal's him over to the heavy bolter
  467.         ResilientGM     The servitor violently bursts through the door.
  468.         ResilientGM     Inside, one man takes aim at the entrance with a laspistol and opens fire.
  469.         Animus  jogs over
  470.         ResilientGM     He hits the servitor in the chest, but it doesn't deter the attack.
  471.         Animus  gives a questioning look to Victrus
  472.         ResilientGM     In response, and ignoring the shot, the servitor punches the man in the chest, collapsing his sternum into his lungs in an ugly "pop", heard only by the tech-priest.
  473.         Gru_Persay      1d100
  474.         Victrus_Macharius       signals him to keep an eye out for other enemy's
  475.         Gru_Persay      pins the unarmed man to the wall.
  476.         Animus  keeps an eye out
  477.         Kass_Yonova     watches the servitor pulp one of the enemy.
  478.         Animus  regains his hearing
  479.         Animus  noticing the commotion, runs into the building
  480.         ResilientGM     The servitor approaches the man he just punched, and examines him. Detecting some movement, he punches him again, fracturing his skull.
  481.         Victrus_Macharius       sees Animus run into the building
  482.         Gru_Persay      +Can anyone hear me?+
  483.         Gru_Persay      +Sound off.+
  484.         Kass_Yonova     notices the dead enemy's gear and pilfers through it in search for intel.
  485.         Gabriel_Laski   laughs over the radio
  486.         Animus  +I'm here+
  487.         Animus  +All hostiles down?+
  488.         Gabriel_Laski   *laughter* +Gabriel haha here+
  489.         Gru_Persay      +I have one pinned down. I need you to look into his mind.+
  490.         Animus  meets up with Gru
  491.         ResilientGM     The man's kit includes a map. The sort of predeployment information packets given to you before making planetfall, The objectives are different, showing landing and deployment zones in urban targets and a manufactorum north of the island.
  492.         Animus  "this one?"
  493.         Kass_Yonova     stows the info packet into his pack before heading back into the main room.
  494.         Gru_Persay      "Yea."
  495.         Victrus_Macharius       begins to regain his hearing
  496.         Victrus_Macharius       +Hello, whats going on in there?+
  497.         Kass_Yonova     After some ear popping Kass slowlying regains his hearing.
  498.         Kass_Yonova     +
  499.         Animus  reaches into the mans thoughts, batting aside his mental resistance
  500.         Kass_Yonova     +Anyone wounded?+
  501.         Gabriel_Laski   "It's clear why that man died. His grenade throw was too HALF hearted"
  502.         Victrus_Macharius       +Nope, what happened in there?+
  503.         Kass_Yonova     +Guys who tried to blind and deafen us died grisly deaths.+
  504.         Gru_Persay      +One is still alive.+
  505.         Gabriel_Laski   +They got fucking destroyed! Punk ass bitches they are!+
  506.         ResilientGM     Animus, is only able to see extreme fear. Passing flashes of memory of a panicked troop, running scared, making a split-second decision to disorient their hunters and run away... a failed attempt. A lethal one, too.
  507.         Gabriel_Laski   walks up to the survivor, and clocks him in the nose
  508.         Animus  "He doesn't know anything useful."
  509.         Gabriel_Laski   "Punk ass bitch!"
  510.         Gabriel_Laski   stabs him in the head with his monoknife
  511.         Gabriel_Laski   stabs him slow
  512.         Kass_Yonova     +Regroup outside, we need to get a move on.+
  513.         Gru_Persay      drops the man.
  514.         Animus  "Calm down son."
  515.         Animus  walks outside
  516.         Victrus_Macharius       +Understood+
  517.         Gabriel_Laski   walks outside and collects his lasgun
  518.         Gru_Persay      peeps into the other room to look at the corpse then leaves the building.
  519.         ResilientGM     Climbing up some rubble, trying to get on the path you took up to this building, you spot familiar figures. The men you encountered previously heard the altercation and have returned to check on their comrades.
  520.         Animus  "Incoming."
  521.         Kass_Yonova     "Who's incoming?"
  522.         Victrus_Macharius       "Where from?"
  523.         Gabriel_Laski   takes cover
  524.         Animus  "On the rubble, coming up the same way we did."
  525.         Kass_Yonova     "Who, Animus, who?"
  526.         Animus  "We have a problem though
  527.         Animus  ."
  528.         Gru_Persay      takes cover near the entrance of the building.
  529.         Animus  "I'm starting to realise that those men were probably Cadian."
  530.         Victrus_Macharius       turns to look
  531.         Kass_Yonova     "The ones who tried to kill us, or the ones we left alone?"
  532.         ResilientGM     The men call out for their comrades.
  533.         Kass_Yonova     "Animus..."
  534.         Victrus_Macharius       "Oh shit" Victrus wispers
  535.         Animus  "The men that are coming towards us are Cadian, and the soldiers you just got done killing were also Cadians. The Cadians coming our way probably are coming to come to investigate ,"
  536.         Victrus_Macharius       moves the bolters into a better position
  537.         Kass_Yonova     +For Emperor's sake, take up defensive positions, do not shoot unless they shoot at us. I'm going to try and talk them down. Gabriel I would suggest staying out of sight.+
  538.         Gru_Persay      commands his multitask servitor to assist the heavy bolter.
  539.         ResilientGM     They suddenly come to realize you're there, and stop.
  540.         Animus  +Going alone?+
  541.         Kass_Yonova     slings his lagsun and takes a non-threatening posture.
  542.         ResilientGM     They take cover.
  543.         Gabriel_Laski   stays behind cover, and prepares a frag grenade
  544.         Kass_Yonova     "Cadians, right!?"
  545.         Gabriel_Laski   pulls the pin on the frag
  546.         Gru_Persay      +Want me to send the combat servitor with you, Kass?+
  547.         Kass_Yonova     +Keep it in cover, Gru.+ Kass whispers into the vox.
  548.         Gru_Persay      commands his Pugnis-class Combat Servitor to stay near him and the Jovian-pattern Gun Servitor to stay near the Heavy Bolter.
  549.         ResilientGM     "Sarge?! Are you in there?! Are you okay?!" one of the men calls from his position of cover.
  550.         Kass_Yonova     "They're dead, unfortunately." Kass says while slowly moving to the side. "We didn't realize until it was too late, they attacked my squad and almost killed us. I'm sorry."
  551.         Animus  +This is going to end well.+
  552.         Gabriel_Laski   +Fucking idiot.+
  553.         Kass_Yonova     "There needn't be anymore bloodshed. Just lay down your arms and surrender."
  554.         ResilientGM     One of the men fires off with his lasgun but misses.
  555.         Gabriel_Laski   begins to cook the grenade
  556.         ResilientGM     "Cease fire!" another man calls back.
  557.         Kass_Yonova     "Emperor's balls! Are you really that stupid!?"
  558.         Gabriel_Laski   "Grenade out!" Gabriel tosses the grenade as far as he can away from the situation
  559.         ResilientGM     "Fire! Fire! Fire!"
  560.         ResilientGM     A firefight breaks out, but the Cadians all miss their targets.
  561.         Kass_Yonova     "Emperor fecking, goddamn, piss, feck, shit, feck, feck, feck." Kass curses as he dives and crawls into cover.
  562.         Gabriel_Laski   takes out another grenade
  563.         Animus  +I could take one hostage.+
  564.         Kass_Yonova     +Theres no fecking point now.+
  565.         Animus  +Eh.+
  566.         Gru_Persay      gives the orders the Jovian-pattern Gun Servitor to fire.
  567.         Gru_Persay      runs toward the Heavy Bolter.
  568.         Victrus_Macharius       opens up fire again with the bolter and hits one of the targets, badly injuring him and he is now beading out badly
  569.         Kass_Yonova     With a roar of rage, Kass flips over and takes aim with his lasgun and shoots the last remaining enemy in the face.
  570.         Kass_Yonova     He then sags into his cover, looking older than he should.
  571.         Victrus_Macharius       get up from the heavy bolter and walks over to the bleeding out soldier, he pulls out his laspistol and shoots him in the head
  572.         Animus  walks over and pats him on the shoulder "Rough day."
  573.         Kass_Yonova     rubs his face as he continues to sit against his cover.
  574.         ResilientGM     Gilliam: "What effective diplomacy..."
  575.         Gru_Persay      commands his servitors to stand down.
  576.         Gabriel_Laski   "Truly we are the reigning kings of friendly fire"
  577.         Animus  "Just shut up for the moment would you."
  578.         ResilientGM     Gilliam: "Just try and keep your head down, boy."
  579.         Animus  looks drained
  580.         Animus  "Alright, what is our next step?"
  581.         Kass_Yonova     Kass just grunts and gets up.
  582.         Kass_Yonova     +Anyone wounded?+
  583.         Victrus_Macharius       stands near the body of the dead soldier for a moment before walking over to Kass.
  584.         Animus  "I don't think so."
  585.         ResilientGM     Gilliam walks inside and collects the Cadian tags.
  586.         Animus  "That had to be the worst...I don't want to even think about it."
  587.         Gru_Persay      walks up to Gabriel.
  588.         Victrus_Macharius       looks at Kass, "You alright Kass?"
  589.         Animus  "Lets just finish the mission."
  590.         Gabriel_Laski   "They were deserters anyway"
  591.         Kass_Yonova     "Don't worry about me."
  592.         Kass_Yonova     +Regroup, we've wasted enough time as is.+
  593.         Animus  +Whats next?+
  594.         Victrus_Macharius       nodes to Kass and heads over to the bolter to get ready to move out.
  595.         Kass_Yonova     +We head to the adminstratum building to rendevous.+
  596.         Animus  +Lets go,+
  597.         Animus  +Lead the way sergeant corporal!.+
  598.         ResilientGM     Gilliam: +I think we've topped maximum stupidity levels for one day, Psyker+
  599.         Kass_Yonova     +Cut the fecking chatter, let's just get to the rendevous.+
  600.         Victrus_Macharius       follows
  601.         ResilientGM     Gilliam pockets the tags, and moves along.
  602.         Animus  follows Kass
  603.         Gru_Persay      follows with his servitors behind him.
  604.         ResilientGM     A small street up ahead curves out into a pattern familiar to Kass - the Administratum building is just around the corner.
  605.         Kass_Yonova     Kass checks the map while walking, and sure enough there's the rendevous.
  606.         Animus  "Are we getting close?"
  607.         ResilientGM     Vorgen: "Corporal, we've got a lot of chatter. I'm willing to bet most of the Platoon is already here."
  608.         Animus  "I was quite enjoying the being away from all the men."
  609.         Kass_Yonova     "Sounds good, report to the El-Tee that we've arrived at the rendevous."
  610.         ResilientGM     Gilliam: +Someone as sociable as yourself?+
  611.         ResilientGM     Vorgen: "Yes, Corporal."
  612.         Animus  +I know right?+
  613.         Gru_Persay      +Shut it. Both of you.+
  614.         Animus  +It's hard to believe sometimes.+
  615.         ResilientGM     +Corporal Yonova. Lieutenant Stannis. Glad to have you join us. What delayed you?+
  616.         Gru_Persay      +Shut your vox hole and stay off the Comms.+
  617.         Kass_Yonova     +We were forced to engage some of the Cadian remnants.+
  618.         Kass_Yonova     +Sir.+
  619.         ResilientGM     +I understand. We had to do the same. Join us as soon as possible.+
  620.         Kass_Yonova     +We are within sight of the building, we should be there in less than five, sir.+
  621.         ResilientGM     Gilliam holds a disinfectant bottle, and opens it up. He takes a gulp from the contents.
  622.         Animus  "That doesn't seem...safe."
  623.         ResilientGM     "Oh, you're in the medicae staff, too?"
  624.         Animus  "I'm on the common sense staff most of the time."
  625.         ResilientGM     "Never known a more talented mutant in my life."
  626.         Gru_Persay      "Do I have to separate you two?"
  627.         ResilientGM     "No need to babysit, cogboy."
  628.         Kass_Yonova     Kass makes a note of Gilliam's "problem," but figures he'll deal with it later.
  629.         ResilientGM     You arrive at the building, and are greeted by troopers in the entrance.
  630.         Animus  "Hello."
  631.         ResilientGM     Inside, you can hear the Lieutenant's voice echo throughout the hall.
  632.         Gru_Persay      "That doesn't sound good."
  633.         ResilientGM     "...minus the Cadians. An entire company lost in the Northern District!"
  634.         Animus  "That sounds good."
  635.         ResilientGM     Around you, the other squads of 1st Platoon have settled down.
  636.         ResilientGM     Some clean their lasguns, others shave. Others still review maps.
  637.         ResilientGM     None, however, are far from their armor and weapons. Ready for action at any moment.
  638.         Animus  "What a welcoming place."
  639.         Victrus_Macharius       "Yep."
  640.         Kass_Yonova     "Get some rest, I'm going to go meet with the El-Tee."
  641.         Animus  finds a secluded spot, curls up into a ball, and falls alseep
  642.         ResilientGM     Gilliam: "A charming establishment."
  643.         Victrus_Macharius       finds a near by table and sits down
  644.         ResilientGM     Lieutenant Stannis: "We'll need eyes up there before any fire support can be called in. Another collapse will mean more delays."
  645.         Gru_Persay      enters the rooms. He lights the candle in the incense burner and sits down.
  646.         Kass_Yonova     approaches the group of NCO's surrounding the Lieutenant, and join the group.
  647.         ResilientGM     Stannis: "Mr. Yonova" he nods
  648.         Gru_Persay      "Pugnis-class Combat Servitor. Register your unit identification as 'Punchy Lungs'. You will respond to either Punchy, Lungs, or Punchy Lungs."
  649.         ResilientGM     A burst of binary confirms the change of settings.
  650.         Gru_Persay      starts meditating with his servitors near him.
  651.         Kass_Yonova     Kass gives the officer a salute before joining in.
  652.         ResilientGM     "Mr. Yonova, after this, I'll need to speak with you regarding an assignment of some sensitivity."
  653.         Kass_Yonova     "Aye, sir."
