  1. 01[20:11] <Staffen> You stand gathered in the Wrath of Justice's ready-room, plotting your next move. Landunder beckons. Darien, the seneschal from the Lathes, has been thoroughly interrogated and you now know where you are going afterwards, but you still have the Inquisitors' orders to pursue.
  2. 06[20:12] * Nyx silently does a series of stretches in the corner
  3. [20:14] <@Ezekiah> It would be polite to infer to whoever is closed to Ezekiah's room that he gets up at... 'dawn' and proceeds to loudly flagelate himself. Speaking in tongues, the sound of his scoriada slapping his bare flesh, the ecstasy of a religious expierence and euphoria. It is... not pleasant for those that are not like minded.
  4. 06[20:18] * Varian who has been interrogating the crew for more wine takes his place amongst the group "Any ideas?" he inquires.
  5. [20:28] <Nyx> "We do as we always do.  'Go do this dangerous job and fix that and try not to die but that's still alright just get it done.'"
  6. [20:28] <Nyx> "Or are things more hopeful in your cell?"
  7. [20:28] <Plex> "None as of yet," Plex replies, having suited up, as it were, moments before. "But I'll be keeping an...eye on things."
  8. [20:29] <@Ezekiah> "It is obvious. We flush out the heretics, burn their bones, and SPLIT THEM ASUNDER!" Spittle is actually flying out of his mouth. "SCOURGE AND PURGE!"
  9. [20:29] <Varian> "I wouldn't stretch as far as 'hopeful' but we manage some optimism, at least at the beginning of a case."
  10. [20:32] <@Ezekiah> "It all eventual devolves into the righteous murder of sinners and heretics, as we excise blesphemy from His sacred realm!"
  11. [20:33] <Petrus> "I don't see how they will let a son of Traansvall planet side without his side arm."
  12. [20:34] <Nyx> "It's an agonizing prospect for anyone of noble birth, yes.  Though the law has merits."
  13. [20:34] <Nyx> "They're all underground.
  14. [20:34] <Nyx> "Underwater, I should say."
  15. [20:34] <Nyx> "Like...like...some sort of...underwater mud-turtle hive."
  16. [20:34] <Nyx> "Underwater turtles."
  17. [20:35] <@Ezekiah> "I have no need for ranged weapons. With my blessed Eviscerator, I shall smite all enemies before us!" he looks at Nyx. "What's a turtle?"
  18. [20:35] <Nyx> "It's something delicious and good for your skin.  Also, good riding animals, if slow.  They like wallowing in mud."
  19. [20:36] <Petrus> "Damn mutant turtles! I've been hunting for them before, nasty things."
  20. [20:36] <Petrus> "They're like ninjas they're so sneaky."
  21. [20:37] <@Ezekiah> "Enough about turtles!"
  22. [20:37] <Nyx> "But mud-turtles..."
  23. 01[20:39] <Staffen> Bantering all the way to the hangar, you board your lander and depart for the Landrian city of Donan.
  24. [20:40] <Nyx> "Even behind my mask, everything still is wet and moldy."
  25. 06[20:40] * Nyx feigns a swoon in angst
  26. [20:41] <@Ezekiah> "... it almost reminds me of home. Less filth and scum and garbage."
  27. 01[20:43] <Staffen> Your shuttle puts down in one of the hangar-bays which are built into the upper exterior of the undercity. The craft descends to the landing platform, suspended dozens of meters below sea-level within the vertical tube.
  28. [20:47] <Plex> "This...is creative," Plex allows. "I've heard of this place, but never seen the depths to which the architecture must have gone."
  29. 06[20:48] * Varian snuggly fits his autopistol into the smooth leather shoulder holster while sheathing his boloknife at the waist. Throwing the flak coat over the top of his suit to help bulk out his figure somewhat.
  30. [20:49] <@Ezekiah> "It's like an underhive, but backwards."
  31. [20:49] <Petrus> "Indeed"
  32. [20:49] <Nyx> "The only good thing about this place is the abundance of seafood.  However, I've been feeling increasingly insane having so much mercury intake every day, I suppose."
  33. 01[20:50] <Staffen> The lander gently puts down on the platform. Far above you, the yellow-tinted light of the sun disappears as the hatch closes again.
  34. [20:54] <Nyx> "'/The darkness rises./'"
  35. 01[20:54] <Staffen> Servitors rush to the shuttle to tend to it. The loading door opens up and in enters a group of guards in carapace and, curiously, armed with blades.
  36. 06[20:57] * @Ezekiah acts as non-chalant as possible about the giant chainblade strapped to his back.
  37. 06[20:57] * Petrus ignores the guards
  38. 06[20:58] * Plex simply stands near to Petrus.
  39. 01[20:58] <Staffen> The guards draw their swords and wield them to block your path.
  40. 06[20:58] * Varian keeps an impassive face, observing the natives with interest.
  41. 01[20:59] <Staffen> "Halt, offworlders. By Administratum regulation you are required to subject yourselves to item-searches. Any and all firearms will be confiscated until you leave the planet. You are free to leave them with your craft."
  42. 06[21:00] * Varian face remains impassive, waiting for the search to commence.
  43. [21:00] <@Ezekiah> "Ha! You will find that this holy warrior has no need for cowardly firearms!"
  44. 01[21:01] <Staffen> "Small melee weapons are permitted. However," the guard continues, "any large-scale close-quarters weapons will be confiscated, as will power weapons. These pose a threat to public safety, as they can potentially damage the undercity."
  45. 06[21:02] * Nyx sighs overloud, and spreads both arms out in a martyr pose, looking ceilingward
  46. [21:02] <Nyx> "Spare me, and search me, just don't tease me."
  47. 06[21:02] * Petrus stares down the guards
  48. 06[21:03] * @Ezekiah tries to look non-chalant, but all he manages is not as intense.
  49. 06[21:03] * Plex has a hard time not rolling her eyes at Nyx's display. She holds her arms out, awaiting the search.
  50. 01[21:03] <Staffen> One guard draws out an auspex, and begins to investigate each of you.
  51. 01[21:08] <Staffen> The guard passes over each of you in-turn. When he comes upon Ezekiah, the auspex begins to beep angrily. "Here's one," the guard announces. "What the hell are you trying to hide from us, that reading is--"
  52. 01[21:08] <Staffen> He looks over Ezekiah's shoulder carefully. "... Oh. Throne, what is that, a chainsword? Draw it, we need to see."
  53. 06[21:10] * @Ezekiah shrugs. "You will see that it is not a cowardly firearm." He draws his eviscerator. "But rather, a holy relic for cleansing from our Emperor's realms those that would do it harm!" It's almost as long as he is tall. And has an exterminator cartridge mounted on it. He is wearing redemptionist red and his gilded mask.
  54. 01[21:11] <Staffen> The guard looks uncertainly to the others. "We'll need to take that, sir, if you start swinging something with that length anywhere you'll break a pressure-unit."
  55. [21:12] <@Ezekiah> "Are you daring to insinuate that this holy warrior of our Emperor is incapable of controlling his chainblade!?"
  56. 01[21:12] <Staffen> "Yes," the guard bluntly states.
  57. 06[21:14] * @Ezekiah just stares at the guard. Staring and staring and staring. Holding on to his chainblade with one weapon, finger precariously close to the cycling trigger. His urge to purge is rising. The rest of the cell can see it. Feel it. Taaaaaste it.
  58. 01[21:16] <Staffen> The guard puts away his sword and produces a small rod. He flicks it, and the end extends out. Static dances across its length.
  59. 01[21:16] <Staffen> The other guards do the same.
  60. 01[21:16] <Staffen> "Give us the weapon, sir," the inspector calmly orders.
  61. 02[21:16] * Petrus (Petrus@sux-19BA8C95.dsl.sfldmi.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Petrus)
  62. 03[21:17] * Petrus (Petrus@sux-19BA8C95.dsl.sfldmi.sbcglobal.net) has joined #eternalwar
  63. 06[21:17] * @Ezekiah would regrettably hand over the eviscerator. "Just let it be known that do to this sinful act when the cleansing flame of the Emperor's return comes to this forsaken pitiful world, you and your children and your childrens-children shall be cast into a chilling hell in which there is no respite or mercy for this slight against a holy warrior of His Majesty!"
  64. 01[21:18] <Staffen> "Was that a threat, sir?" the guard asks.
  65. [21:19] <@Ezekiah> "IT WAS A PROMISE!"
  66. 01[21:19] <Staffen> The guard takes the eviscerator.
  67. 01[21:20] <Staffen> Then his associates crowd around Ezekiah and begin pummeling him with their shock-mauls.
  68. [21:22] <Nyx> "Don't taze him, brothers!"
  69. [21:22] <@Ezekiah> "Ack! VILLAINS!"
  70. 06[21:22] * Petrus fires a warning shot in the cramped lift
  71. 01[21:26] <Staffen> The shot puts a dent in the side-armor of the lander. The guards turn away from Ezekiah at once and look to Petrus.
  72. 01[21:26] <Staffen> "He's firing on us!" one of the guards exclaims. "Apprehend him!"
  73. [21:26] <Nyx> "Look ye, upon our noble grace and--and--wait stop please don't come closer."
  74. [21:26] <Petrus> "Quiet you fool!"
  75. [21:26] <Petrus> "If I was firing on you you'd be dead"
  76. 06[21:29] * @Ezekiah is swearing in low gothic. Specifically, the gothic used in the Brontian underhives. It's a colorful language, if completely dirty and certainly unbecoming of a holy warrior of the Emperor.
  77. 01[21:30] <Staffen> Ezekiah is in fact twitching repeatedly against the decking from a very painful application of electrical charge.
  78. 06[21:30] * Varian grimaces, ducking instinctively as the shot is fired.
  79. 06[21:30] * Nyx bursts into song
  80. 06[21:32] * Nyx chokes suddenly, feeling stage fright
  81. 06[21:32] * Petrus points to a guard in the back "You there, come forward this instant!"
  82. 01[21:32] <Staffen> The guards ignore Nyx and now approach Petrus, mauls raised high. "Lay down your weapon and subject yourself to the Magistratum!"
  83. [21:32] <Petrus> "Do you know who I am?"
  84. 01[21:36] <Staffen> "Who you are is irrelevent," one of the guards says, "we're--"
  85. 06[21:38] * Plex rubs the Aquila on her hand before reaching out mentally to meddle in the handful of guards whose minds she can penetrate. They suddenly feel an overwhelming urge to smack the sorry bastard next to each one of them for saying such underhanded things about the Emperor and his respective mother.
  86. [21:39] <Petrus> "Nyx, help Zeke up."
  87. 01[21:39] <Staffen> The guards immediately begin whaling on one-another. Three of them drop over, stunned, much like Ezekiah is presently.
  88. [21:40] <Nyx> "But I'm tired~"
  89. 06[21:40] * Nyx helps up Zeke, showing no such fatigue
  90. [21:42] <@Ezekiah> "Neyearagh hehanfya..."
  91. 06[21:42] * Petrus reloads his pistol
  92. [21:43] <Nyx> "Let's get our of here, dear friends, while our erstwhile guards are improving their brotherly relations!"
  93. [21:43] <Petrus> "Indeed"
  94. [21:43] <Plex> "Well. That went...better than expected," Plex says merrily, already over by the room's exit.
  95. [21:44] <Nyx> "Very good work!  I didn't even feel the Immaterium ripple!"
  96. [21:44] <Nyx> "Now if only the voices would stop..."
  97. 06[21:45] * Varian eyes dart in surprise and a little fear perhaps from one psyker to another as they talk of their witchery and the guards spontaneously beat each other.
  98. 02[21:45] * Petrus (Petrus@sux-19BA8C95.dsl.sfldmi.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Petrus)
  99. 03[21:46] * Petrus (Petrus@sux-19BA8C95.dsl.sfldmi.sbcglobal.net) has joined #eternalwar
  100. [21:46] <Plex> "Varian! Petrus. It occurs to me that...well, tidying up is in order. Shall we nip the fallen stun batons and finish the job?"
  101. [21:47] <Nyx> "...Most excellent idea."
  102. 06[21:47] * Varian holds up his hands, "I am all for not being caught but is that wise?"
  103. [21:48] <Plex> "Wisdom fled the moment before Petrus pulled his pistol, unfortunately."
  104. 06[21:49] * @Ezekiah can finally stand. "I... am okay." And he would grab his chainblade and place it back at it's place. "I can stand... and the first sinner I mean, I will TWIN UNTIL TWAIN!" Zzzzt! He still had some to discharge.
  105. [21:49] <Petrus> "I couldn't let them just wail on him like he was a punching bag."
  106. [21:50] <Nyx> "Oh, your kindness for the common serflings is admirable, my lord."  
  107. [21:50] <Plex> "I can't disagree. But the point is, this happy little melee won't last until the last of them drops. And if we don't find some way to handle them all, they'll simply chase us through the entire Hive."
  108. 06[21:51] * Nyx pulls along Ezekiah with haste until he can stomp along to walk off the shock
  109. 06[21:53] * Plex rummages among the fallen guards. "Ah, look. Manacles. How convenient."
  110. [21:53] <Petrus> "Cuff them"
  111. [21:54] <Plex> "And cuff them together. And then cuff them *to* something."
  112. [21:54] <Petrus> "Take their microbeads too, so they can't call for backup."
  113. [21:55] <Nyx> "While I am apt to disregard the Imperial Arbites as much as the next noble, should we not make this worse?"
  114. [21:55] <@Ezekiah> "Alright. I am fine!"
  115. [21:55] <Nyx> "They'll come back to eventually."
  116. 06[21:55] * Varian wants to keep distant from the psykers and fanatic but also wishes to put some distance between the bodies and himself. Eventually giving in to the lesser of the two evils and jogging after Nyx and Ezekiah, cloak billowing in his wake.
  117. 06[21:56] * Plex sets about doing all the above, humming merrilly all the while.
  118. 06[21:56] * Nyx slips a small note into one of the fallen Arbitrator's helmets
  119. [21:57] <Nyx> "I've done my part! It's the best we can hope for.  Let's get the damn hell out of here."
  120. [21:57] <Petrus> "Indeed"
  121. [22:00] <@Ezekiah> "We should not tell the inquisitrix about this..."
  122. 01[22:02] <Staffen> The loading doors are still open and inviting. Beyond them is a large hallway lined with doors, likely for cargo-moving.
  123. 06[22:03] * Plex follows the rest of them into the hallway proper. "Where were the filtration systems we were supposed to find?"
  124. 01[22:07] <Staffen> You are successful in leaving the port as though there weren't six armed guards currently tied up and stuck in your landing craft.
  125. [22:09] <Nyx> "I wonder if someone will feed them."
  126. [22:09] <Nyx> "Ah, well, it's not as if it's the first time I've left people to starve."
  127. 06[22:10] * Nyx swings about his cane in a dignified strut about the Landunder port
  128. [22:10] <Nyx> "Where are we going now?  Directly to the filtration units?"
  129. 06[22:10] * Petrus puts away his pistol and follows the party
  130. 06[22:11] * Varian tightens his backpacks straps as they move further in. "Well if the bowls of a normal hive contain the majority of the inner workings, it would be reversed in this case. Correct? The inner mechanics that run this station should be near the 'roof'?"
  131. [22:12] <Nyx> "As expected of a blueblood intellect.  That is indeed perhaps where our techno-turtles of the Mechanicus have placed the things."
  132. 06[22:13] * Nyx grabs a random passerby by throwing thrones in their face
  133. [22:13] <Nyx> "You! Where are filtration units of this hive stored?"
  134. 01[22:14] <Staffen> The passerby flinches, grabbing the coins thrust into his face. "Fuck off!" he snaps, and quickly scurries away.
  135. 06[22:15] * Nyx throws a badly-aimed rock at the retreating man
  136. 06[22:17] * Varian tries a more cultured approach, smiling sweetly as he approaches a passerby, "Good day, I was wondering where the filtration units for the hive were stored. We are off-world technicians given a report that there may be a malfunction that could affect your air and water supply and we wish to quickly solve it." he continues to smile as he tells the person their life may be endangered.
  137. 06[22:18] * Petrus asks around for the whereabouts of the filtration units
  138. 01[22:20] <Staffen> The person Varian has stopped lifts his eyebrows and sucks in hair. "Throne have mercy," he groans. "As if the Space Marine wasn't enough... you'll find the main filter-hub in the Naravine Spire. Do you think you'll be able to fix it?"
  139. [22:20] <@Ezekiah> "What space marine?"
  140. 01[22:21] <Staffen> The man recoils at the sight of Ezekiah. "That's a hell of a get-up, buddy!"
  141. [22:21] <Varian> "Oh most certainly, the report said it was urgent but routine. The Emperor protects."
  142. 06[22:23] * @Ezekiah goes to reply... but thinks better about it.
  143. 01[22:23] <Staffen> "That's good to hear," the man says. "If you don't need me anymore, I'll be going. It's been a long day."
  144. 02[22:23] * Petrus (Petrus@sux-19BA8C95.dsl.sfldmi.sbcglobal.net) Quit (Quit: Petrus)
  145. 06[22:24] * Varian nods as the man takes his leave.
  146. [22:28] <@Ezekiah> "It seems that the traitor we were warned about is here already."
  147. [22:31] <Plex> "Well...he only said it was a Space Marine. No reason to assume right off that it was...that. Right?" She sounds...perhaps a bit too hopeful.
  148. 06[22:31] * Nyx flexes both augmetic hands
  149. [22:31] <Nyx> "...Well.  We'll find out soon enough.  It's too soon, but if fate will have it, we shall chance it."
  150. [22:32] <Varian> "I think he would be a little more histerical if it was who you think it was."
  151. [22:32] <Plex> "Ah. Good. Right. Varian has it
  152. [22:32] <Plex> !"
  153. [22:34] <@Ezekiah> "Do we know of any other astartes that is trying to mess with the city?"
  154. 06[22:36] * Varian starts looking for any directions in the upside down hive to Naravine Spire, sub-floor 239.
  155. 06[22:40] * @Ezekiah does the same as well.
  156. 01[22:40] <Staffen> Over the course of the next hour and a half, Ezekiah lead you across the hive, passing through enormous transparent tunnels that show you the deep, dark waters of the world and the various odd creatures that somehow survive in them. You catch a ride on a public rail-service and arrive at Naravine Spire soon enough.
  157. [22:41] <Nyx> "Good work!"
  158. [22:41] <Plex> "Well. Here we are. Now, to find out how far up or down is sub-floor 239..."
  159. 01[22:41] <Staffen> Ezekiah continues to follow the directional signs to take you downwards. Beyond the public areas the Spire (stalagmite is a better word for it, if the view you got from the transparent tunnels was worth anything) becomes a series of tight passageways.
  160. 06[22:42] * Varian hand rests on his pistol's grip in the holster as they continue onwards, wary as they approach their destination.
  161. 01[22:43] <Staffen> Far in the distance you can hear the commotion of large, rowdy groups of people. Nothing comes of it, however.
  162. [22:43] <@Ezekiah> "Now which way do we go...?"
  163. 01[22:44] <Staffen> Eventually, you come upon a bulkhead with a lumen-panel above it which marks it as the "FILTRATION HUB".
  164. [22:44] <Plex> "We're heeeeere..."
  165. 01[22:44] <Staffen> Curiously, the bulkhead is forced open already.
  166. [22:44] <Plex> "...As is the Other Guy."
  167. [22:45] <Nyx> "...How much then is it wise to wager that that is from an actual repair crew fixing actual repairs to the actually malfunctioning filter system?"
  168. [22:45] <@Ezekiah> "Perfect. My blade hungers for his sinner's blood!"
  169. 06[22:45] * Nyx pulls forth his blade
  170. 06[22:46] * Varian points to the bent metal, "forced open like that. I don't think so."
  171. 01[22:47] <Staffen> The decking beneath you groans and trembles as Plex begins to invoke her powers.
  172. [22:47] <Nyx> "Ah ah ah!"
  173. [22:47] <Nyx> "The earth! She doth protest too mu--"
  174. 06[22:47] * Nyx falls over
  175. 01[22:48] <Staffen> Pipelines above you begin to burst with the quake. Soon after a warning klaxon blares.
  176. 06[22:48] * Varian stumbles but manages to hold his footing as the vibrations rattle his bones.
  177. [22:48] <Plex> "Dammit!" she cries as the heaves force her to the ground as well.
  178. [22:48] <Nyx> "Oh Throne!"
  179. 06[22:48] * Nyx catches a load of falling, ancient asbestos on the back
  180. 06[22:48] * @Ezekiah is down on his butt. "Curses!" Before he kips up.
  181. 06[22:50] * Varian draws his pistol, looking around sharply at Plex as water begins to drip on him. "What the hell was that?" he hisses at her.
  182. 06[22:51] * Plex at the very least has the grace to look sheepish.
  183. [22:51] <@Ezekiah> "That was foul sorcery at it's worst!"
  184. 06[22:51] * Nyx gets on fours, looking left and right wildly
  185. [22:52] <Nyx> "You try keeping the Warp off your back when it's inside your head."
  186. [22:52] <Nyx> "We had best get up and start. That's going to cue every witchfinder for kilometers."
  187. 06[22:52] * Plex climbs back to her feet, unsteadily. "We have...trouble ahead. There's something...big. Really big. And followers. Or soldiers."
  188. 06[22:53] * Varian pushes on through the door, half because he wants to finish the mission and get out of this water encapsulated coffin and the other half to get away from the psykers.
  189. [22:54] <@Ezekiah> "Ha! More to fall before my sacred blade!"
  190. 01[22:55] <Staffen> Through the doorway are corpses on either side of the hall. They sit, crumpled to the floor, some with arms removed and enormous gashes through them.
  191. [22:55] <@Ezekiah> "Something has killed these men very gruesomely."
  192. 06[22:56] * Varian gives Ezekiah a 'No shit' look before turning back to look further inwards, slowly creeping forward, step by cautiously placed step.
  193. [22:56] <@Ezekiah> "Power weapon of some sort."
  194. [22:56] <Plex> "..." She pales noticeably and looks over at Nyx.
  195. [22:57] <Nyx> "...Lots of power weapons are in the Imperium."
  196. [22:57] <Nyx> "Let's head onwards."
  197. 06[22:58] * Varian puts his free hand to his lips "voices, sounds like locals and something else... unnatural."
  198. [22:58] <@Ezekiah> "Our astartes."
  199. [22:59] <Plex> "Varian. If you see it, and it has no mouth, run. Do nothing else. Run." She's dead serious.
  200. 06[22:59] * Varian whispers "The locals are putting up defensive formations, might be worth talking to them. Get them on our side."
  201. [22:59] <@Ezekiah> "If I see it and it has no mouth, I SHALL BEHEAD IT!"
  202. 06[23:02] * Varian points further in, "Anyone want to... you know.?"

  206. Session Ident: #eternalwar
  207. 02[23:05] * Disconnected
  208. 02[23:06] * Attempting to rejoin channel #eternalwar
  209. 03[23:06] * Rejoined channel #eternalwar
  210. 01[23:12] <Staffen> As Ezekiah walks through the doorway, he comes under a hail of gunfire from four different locations.
  211. 01[23:12] <Staffen> Bullets pelt the doorway around him.
  212. 06[23:12] * Varian ducks as the ricochets bounce around him.
  213. [23:13] <Varian> "Zek!"
  214. 01[23:13] <Staffen> "Whoah," you hear someone shout, "what the fuck? That's a Redemptionist!"
  215. 06[23:13] * Plex relaxes, ever so slightly. Gunfire likely means it's not who she thought it was.
  216. 06[23:13] * @Ezekiah laughs. "Yes! YES! SINNERS! Your end has COME! RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL PREVAIL! I will spill your blood for the EMPEROR!" For added effect, he draws and revs his eviscerator.
  217. 01[23:15] <Staffen> An armored giant stomps forward, wielding a menacing, glowing sword. It wears white war plate edged in black, and its eyes shine red. Its helm is crested with a pair of wicked horns.
  218. 01[23:15] <Staffen> "Drop that weapon, mortal," it growls, "or I'll cut you in two and put you on display."
  219. [23:16] <@Ezekiah> "HAHA! I HAVE FOUND YOU!"
  220. 03[23:17] * Retrieving #eternalwar modes...
  221. 03[23:17] * Staffen changes topic to 'Ezekiah, white giant'
  222. 01[23:18] <Staffen> "We'll do it your way, then," the giant grumbles. "That's more fun."
  223. 06[23:19] * @Ezekiah charges the giant. "The Emperor smiles upon me, BLIGHTED ONE! FEEL THE BURN OF MY SACRED BLADE!" And as he crosses the distance to attack the giant, a gout of flame leaps from his blade, as he cackles madly!
  224. 01[23:21] <Staffen> The giant moves sluggishly, and is caught in the gout of flame.
  225. 01[23:21] <Staffen> "What the hell are you doing, you maniac?!" one of the men with guns shouts.
  226. [23:22] <@Ezekiah> "I AM PURGING FOR THE EMPEROR!"
  227. 01[23:22] <Staffen> "Getting his deathwish answered," the giant grunts.
  228. 01[23:26] <Staffen> The giant charges into Ezekiah and smacks him with a wide slice of his sword. The attack smacks Ezekiah aside like a ragdoll and rips through the metal wall. The rest of you are now confronted by him.
  229. [23:26] <Nyx> "...Are you a traitor?"
  230. 06[23:26] * Nyx pokes out from behind the hole to ask
  231. 06[23:27] * @Ezekiah mumbles from the heap he's in. "If it doesn't hurt... it doesn't coooooount..."
  232. 01[23:27] <Staffen> "No," the giant says, "but you're about to get run through if you don't explain why your friend just attacked Grant of Jarkos."
  233. [23:27] <Plex> "...Redemptionist." Right. Like that would explain everything.
  234. 01[23:28] <Staffen> Flames still lick at the giant's feet, but it does not seem perturbed.
  235. 06[23:29] * Varian eyes widen in shock, stumbling out his sentances to placate the monster "He's not our friend!"
  236. [23:29] <Nyx> "If you want to kill him, he's not our friend.  If you want to eat him, he's very filling and delicious."
  237. [23:30] <Nyx> "If you, uh, want to, uh, leave us alone while we go about our business, Lord Astartes, that too would be very conducive to your contentment, I offer."
  238. 01[23:31] <Staffen> "My patience runs thin, mortals," Grant states. "Two-hundred years ago, I would have cut the lot of you in half. But the Guard Master insisted, o, 'temperance! Grant them mercy, heed them!' As you probably saw, though, I am not of a very merciful temperament."
  239. 01[23:36] <Staffen> The Marine steps back, into the room. "Now enter. Keep your hands where they can be seen. I have questions for the lot of you..."
  240. 06[23:36] * Plex does so. Without hesitation.
  241. 06[23:37] * Varian holsters his autopistol and follows instructions.
  242. 06[23:39] * Nyx sheathes his sword and puts both hands up
