The Thread Where We Start Saying "Ex" Instead of "Ten"

Warmasters Triumvirate is an attempt at creating yet another 40k AU. The Primarchs have changed, and instead of appointing a single Warmaster upon returning to Terra, the Emperor leaves the Great Crusade in the care of three of his sons. This eventually culminates in a civil war between Loyalists, Chaos Traitors and Separatists...

Things to work on:
>Determine the Separatists' motives
>Fill up the three factions as evenly as possible
>Continue fluffing out the legions we already have
>Decide on who the Chaos Warmaster is
>Work on the Relationship of the Primarchs

ITT we decide whether Malcador leads the secession or if the separatist warmaster Rokuten does. Because I'm not sure who agrees with which.

Rokuten. It would feel a little weird to have only two of the three warmasters be primarchs when we're going for that whole "Three way brother war" angle. I've no problems with Malcador being somehow involved with the separatists, but I don't think he should be the official warmaster

If the question is still in the room what exactly motivated the Separatists to secede, I say it's because Rokuten and the other Separatists hated the way the Imperium was run by officials installed by the Emperor/the Emperor himself by proxy. Posting the thing again.

As such, I would say it is Rokuten himself who calls for a revolution. Malcador may end up lending support from within the loyalist controlled space since the rest of the Terran council has wrestled him out of his seat in their own political scheming while Emps is absent, hoping that seven (six?) angry legions on his doorstep may be a wake-up call.

I suggest we look at the conflict between Loyalist and Separatist/Revolutionaries as the main conflict with the chaos heretics later chiming in.

I advise against the whole tech-heresy as an actual reason for the Revolutionaries. The Imperium itself would value any new tech, it is solely the AdMech whose religious dogmata make them go apeshit about what technology is a-ok or not. Don't forget, only the Emps and maybe Malcador know about the true nature of Chaos at this point, so their religious infighting is not nearly as justified as it is in 40k.

Instead, it should be that the later tech-heretics would side with the Revolutionaries because they represent a possibility to escape the conservative direction of Mars, while actual raving madmen go and join the Chaos heretics.

Well, it wasn't really that Rokuten hated it, but nobody will remember that by M41.

I doubt they would be able to kick him out, seeing as he is the founder of the Officio Assassinorum, an organization that has a tendency to kill all the High Lords of Terra; and he is THE regent of Terra, so anybody who messes with him messes with the Emperor.

This brings up the altered council of Nikaea: What should it be about? Who should be prosecuted? With our overwhelming pro-psyker and therefore pro-space wizardry support, there's not much going on here. Again I advise against tech-heresy. Since I already believe that simple politics should be the prime motivation for this whole ordeal, let the council be about politics: Let's prosecute one of the later Revolutionary legions for repeatedly ignoring orders from Emp's stewards, their defense being that they could not fulfill a certain (possibly unfair) quota due to unforeseen difficulties had they followed instructions and not improvised or claiming the right to have a final say as they are being the ones who have to live with the consequences of diplomatic or military fuckups.

Since the council happens much earlier, it could pretty well be that it is during this time we already draw lines, the later Revolutionary legions support the prosecuted primarch for going solo while the Loyalists act as his accusers. The later chaos heretics can be evenly split among these groups.

>> No.53450115

Since we have so many psyker or psyker-favoring Primarchs, would it make sense for Nikaea to be more "The Emperor is laying down the law for all the kids, cut that psyker shit out" rather than "Let's all have a debate, shall we?"

This is a recurring worry that I just don't share. It's M31, the Revolutionaries have canon Horus' worry that they are being made redundant and superfluous by doing all the heavy lifting and then not allowed a say in the logistics of the conquered planets nor the supply of their own legions. What happens after the Brotherwar up until M41 is as far as I am concerned completely irrelevant for our progress.

>Malcador
Alright, fine, you got me. I admit it here and now: I have no fucking idea WHAT exactly Malcador does. All my information is based on other threads and HH novels. Fuck me, right? From all those sources, I could only ever discern him as the Emp's advisor/confidant. In those regards, I have never seen him have any more power or influence at the point of M31 than other politicians and stewards put in place by the Emperor while he fucked off to tinker on the Golden Throne.
So what exactly says that he is the only one with assassins? That technology couldn't possibly be his and his alone to breed and equip human killing machines. And while I agree that his close relations to Big E allow him extreme status, I actually doubt that ambitious politicians wouldn't try to push him away from Emps in any fashion in order to install themselves as His righthand-man, or to try to undermine his status. Malcador isn't the angelic psyker-god who charms everyone at first glance and his only argument is that he's friends with the cool kid everybody wants to be friends with.

>>53450115
Possible, put it on the list.

>>53450139
When we each posted our primarchs, I guess we all sort of had kept in mind that technically speaking all primarchs are latent psykers due to being of Big E's stock, but forgot that maybe we don't need to explicitly mention that they're psykers unless they actually employ mind bullets, telekinesis or clairvoyancy.

He literally started the Inquisition.
>So what exactly says that he is the only one with assassins? That technology couldn't possibly be his and his alone to breed and equip human killing machines.
He literally started the Officio Assassinorum too, so while he's not strictly the only one with assassins, he's in command of the best of them.
And while I agree that his close relations to Big E allow him extreme status, I actually doubt that ambitious politicians wouldn't try to push him away from Emps in any fashion in order to install themselves as His righthand-man, or to try to undermine his status. Malcador isn't the angelic psyker-god who charms everyone at first glance and his only argument is that he's friends with the cool kid everybody wants to be friends with.
The problem is Malcador is about as mysterious as the Emperor himself, and almost as powerful. He's also one of the few people who know anything about the Emperor's plans.

Phoneposting because I can't sleep.

So I caught up on at least the biography. Based on Rokuten's reply, and what I learned on lexicanum (I actually like it a lot and apologise for not researching out of my own motivation), I can only take away that Malcador wouldn't even need to rely on legions to correct a corrupt Imperial government because he can either mindbullet, mind control or assassinate everybody who mucks up on Terra. So while he would definitely be a sufficiently influental person to gain the support of the legions, I fail to see why he would go that route if he can just as easily remove anybody before he takes his breakfast tea. Also his status basically makes him a replacement Emperor. If Emps is unavailable then people automatically turn to Malc. He has no motivation to join or instigate a revolution.
In that regard it would have to be Malcador himself who turns the governing body into a police state while Emps is unavailable, being the reason for the Revolutionaries' frustration in the first place.
I suggest abandoning the idea of Malcador having any relations to the Revolutionary movement, at all.
I don't see how this influences the Revolutionaries, though. They get angry and want their fair share. Why is that not enough?

Malcador was not manipulating the Emperor. He even gave his own life to help preserve the Emperor's vision.

Not manipulating him. More doing all the real leading of humanity while the Emperor was taking care of shit that he wanted humanity to have nothing to do with. He more or less gave up control to Malcs while he did the gate shit.

I don't expect them to move fast at all and I see no reason for it to because it's a fan effort, it just gets somewhat irritating for me since while I was waiting for when the Guard can shine, the guys who worked on the legions were still talking over the legions fifty threads in.

Moving the planet is not so out of warhammer lore. Think of the plabet of sorcerors. But if it was just a joke and trolling you exactly proofed why it is important to have someone who hold the reigns. I fell for it and thought your idea was serious. It is crazy but we are talking about a universe inhabited by demons and xenos and strange stuff which could exain close to anything.

It's probably my tendency to shitpost. Also, if I put forth an idea, it's usually because I honestly think it's better, so it's harder for me to settle for the """"""worse"""""" option not that it is, but it's not like it's impossible for me to agree with other people.

It could work. Legions get cut off in the far end of the Imperium, and have to work on their own for centuries, trying their best initially to preserve the Imperial Truth with mixed results at best, and utter failure at worse. The storm breaks up, and they find the Imperium a wholly different creature from what they knew. The Imperial Cult has sprouted and taken hold of the Imperium, and the legions had been divided into smaller chapters (Which, due to their situation, they saw no reason for). Horrified, they declare independence from the Imperium and start the Brother War.

>> No.53458154

I don't really see the Malcador thing. The revs/seps wouldn't need him to lead their movement, and being Malc as loyal as he was, I see it pretty difficult. Being the one that controls everything doesn't mean that he would go rogue at the first chance, and I don't see good reasons for him going rogue. Corrupt Terran politics? Wipe 'em out. Big E left for war business? Why, tho? It was his job to take care of everything while Empy was out. Too much power corrupting him? Empy would have guessed, and removed him from power before he could do anything.

I'm going with the angry legions subject. Going rogue because you want to control your claimed planets seems legit, and if they operated far away from Terra, it would be even reasonable.

Chaos still has the Eye and its surroundings, probably other Warp Storms as well.

The Imperium's influence is only considered solid in Segmentums Solar, Tempestus, and Pacificus.

Okay, so storm subsides, Imperium reconnects with the Eastern Imperium led by Rokuten, and he's all like,"Pfft, sure, we'll come back to the Imperium, totes. Just give us a second to regroup on our homeworlds and we'll be split into countless chapters in a jiffy." So they regroup in the Imperium and then SURPRISE! THEY'RE NOT GONNA IMPERIALIZE! SECOND BROTHER WAR!
>Does mean we'll still have to figure out how the Seps become more advanced, but we'll see.
Uncover an ancient archive, what DH-anon suggests, some "sympathetic" primarchs bring less orthodox Mechanicum with them, etc.

Also, to continue throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks, I could see the Separatists being started more as an "Astartes vs Humans" idea, potentially with some of the Primarchs fan the flames behind the scenes, especially if some of them feel shunned or hated by the Imperium at large.
To use the example of Einchurt, his nihillistic views on what the Imperium is turning into (a squishy monolith led by people who have no idea what the galaxy is capable of shitting out) could rub off onto some of the other Primarchs, who feel that, since his sons have been shunned for doing the very things they were ordered to, he may be right.

I fail to see how that actually gives them any motivation to go to war and topple the current Imperial governing body and risk weakening them to the point where humanity's existence is at stake.
But for the sake of progress I will join this notion.

I have a few remarks though:
Reduce the years of seclusion down to decades instead of centuries. The eastern fleet is cut off and believes Terra to have been swallowed by the warp. They bolt a strictly regulated but shakily established governing body, funnelling their resources into fortification and war efforts. Just as they face the crisis of dealing with their unsustainable spending, the storms subside and let them reconnect to the Terran Imperium already beset by Chaos, the Emperor decapacitated and Terra ruled by malcador and shady officials, turning it from the Imperial Truth as the Symphonious Disciples and their retinue of orators have established a primitive Imperial Cult around the silent Emperor. They believe it to be treason, and use their vast military reserves for a massive campaign and reclaim Terra from what they perceive to be self-serving bureaucrats and blind religious mongrels. The threat of chaos is not known to them initially, and once they do they believe it to be a secondary problem they will solve after securing Terra.

I was thinking it's more of a matter of not wanting to rejoin the imperium and fighting any fleets that come to fuck up their shit, and maybe a dash of thinking their way of life is better so they need to conquer Imperial worlds to spread their ideology.

The ideas of worshipping the Emperor as a god had been circulating in secret throughout the fleets and compliant worlds for years, and once it turned to open worship it was such a massive factor that assassination alone could not remove it, so Malc had to arrange himself with the religious movement until the threat of the Chaos uprising had been dealt with.
Since he could not properly take care of the problem, it solidified and the theocratic party was in full motion once the Revolutionaries returned into the fold, leading to the misunderstanding of Malcador's intentional deconstruction of the Imperial Truth and ensuing Revolutionary campaign to take Terra and "drain the swamp".

Nah, Malcador is the spymaster. He wouldn't just accept the scraps the Council gives him; his agents would bypass them.

Like I say, Malcador would not just operate through the official channels.

He could take time to focus on the traitors rather than the zealots during the Brother War, since they're the priority, so the Imperial Cult is able to spread without as much impediment. Malcador then dies during the Brother War, possibly killed by either Chaos assassins or the Soaring Host, or possibly even the Council of Terra somehow (unlikely), so the Imperial Cult is able to spread further.

It doesn't really matter if Malcador's behind the radicalization, intentionally or otherwise, only that it happens.

Wait, that's the Kinebranch who they're apparently allied with, nvm.

But still.

They *do* represent an interesting 3rd option for the Seps, but they also open up all kinds of questions regarding such an alliance that would be difficult to answer. There's not enough canon info to really say how powerful they are, or the full extent of their tech besides implying it's hax as fuck.

(Also they apparently have Next Level Tau Drones that are basically AI, so that's a whole other can of worms)

Seps + Interex would absolutely create a suitably powerful faction to oppose Imperials, and it would also inherit an angle against Chaos. However... it would be a VERY powerful faction. Maybe universe-bendingly powerful depending how you interpret their tech.

tl;dr, it's a tool that would work. But would the cure be worse than the disease?

Alright ya gits. Time for some order.
Schematically speaking the first question is why the Revolutionaries bugger off.

1. They're cut off by the Ruinstorm and when contact is re-established, they're like NOPE NOPE NOPE.

2. They don't like something about the Imperium:
--A They hate the idea of FILTHY UNTERMENSCHEN HUMIES ruling the Imperium.
--B The Imperium is too big to be efficient, so they want to change up the administrative scheme and tax policy. (This is what Gyahdred literally wants to do.)

Not to toot my own horn excessively here, but the entire premise of the Steel Souls is "Balance the strains that being a Psyker puts on humans with psybernetic assistance".

So the problem with that totally plausible idea is that it doesn't give us the desired three way brotherwar.

>>53463343
>Continuing.
So I think the biggest goal here, the thing we all agree on is that a three-way brother war is awesome.
This means that every story element in setting up the the heresy/schism must be designed to achieve that end.

So thus far, we have the Emperor ending up enthroned ahead of schedule.

>>53463462
And we may be able to get that via >>53463363

So the result is that regardless of whether or not Malcador goes and chills with the Revolutionaries, they are viable, as is the Imperium. I personally like Malcador being on their side since it fits him, but he can die early enough in the heresy for it to be a non issue.

As a result, the big question is what scenario triggers the splitting.

I think the simplest solution for this is tensions that would arise naturally following Ullanor.
So I propose this scenario:

>The Emperor gets Enthroned
>The Primarchs finish the campaign
>Malcador assumes the regency
>The Primarchs are iffy about this due to varying degrees of ambition and the like. Warmaster is supposed to be the Emperor's successor, right?
>Some legion violates an edict
>One of the Warmasters unilaterally enacts censure.
>This results in some violence
>Malcador tries to stop it.

>Someone else institutes an inquisition, perhaps Je'Sha himself.

If Malcador is cut off togheter with the seps and declared death after a few decades then he most likely has no political power cuz all bis positions will most likely be filled with successors.

Often utilised in situations of small confinement where the Loxodontii cannot employ their vehicles to great efficiency, the Breachers are used as speartips in boarding actions as well as combat indoors.

The Third Chapter was renown for employing the Breachers on as many occasions as possible, sometimes even taking the role of riot police or bodyguard for their primarch when planetside.

>The Outriders
Whether it is the nomadic tribes of the far steppes or the nobility of the great cities, riding is a vital part of the culture of Babylon V. Many children learn to sit in the saddle at the age of six, and to take the reins by the age of eight. As the core approach of the Loxodontii focuses on quickly deploying troops through Rhino- and Razorback-transporters, a sizeable portion imitates those tactics of their homeworld and takes to bikes to escort transporters, intercept enemy fast-attack deployments or to deliver hit-and-run attacks on poorly defended outposts.

Pretty much. I'm thinking that the only people who don't consider themselves the ONE TRUE IMPERIUM is Chaos. Everybody is trying to take the throne and it just so happens that the Je'Sha and his more conservative buddies are the ones who ended up with Terra. It could just have easily have been Rokuten and Gyahdred's SUPERIOR TAX POLICIES sitting there and then they'd be the Loyalists and Je'Sha would be the Revolutionary.

Just one way of looking at it, though. It may be that some of the Rev Primarchs wanted to secede.

I like the idea of the ruinstorm separating them from the Imperium and then when they finally reconnect the Imperium they did know is so different that they refuse to rejoin. Perhaps the Separatists originally try to act nice and try open like a trade alliance or something but the Imperium still follows the join us or die kind of thing they have always clung too.
As for the Imperium being completely taken over by religious fanatics I've seen at least 1 or 2 of the Loyalist writers say they have no interest in that for their legions. So we could make it (and this is just an idea) that the Imperium is united but also split, the Imperial cult is trying to take power away from the Imperial truth but neither can get on top of one another. However both factions still cling to Big E. Then to anyone unhappy about why the Imperium didn't just crush the Separatists we can just say that every time a move is made against them it is weakened by internal conflict on the Imperiums side?
Also while I'm not a huge fan of the idea of moving Mars, there is no way it would be impossible in the 40k universe. Look at the Rock for example and there are several other examples of entire planets being built into ships, like Craftworlds on Necron Homeworlds.

So I think at this point the big question is who would be cool with Yochin.
Who are his friends?
Who would be comfortable using religion as a system for keeping the population under control?
Who could be induced to follow Yochin's cult with traitors at the gates?
Who could be convinced to let the cult propagate amongst the imperium, keeping their own legion secular?
Who could be converted?
Who dies during the heresy and isn't there to oppose Yochin?

We need 6 Primarchs down for Team Yochin/too busy being dead to care.

>Psymoritum Squads

Ten-Marine squads led by a Librarian, all 9 Battle Brothers have psybernetic mind-links with the squad leader with which they coordinate and move as a single whole. By sharing the mental burden with their Librarian, the Librarian's mental capabilities are significantly increased in power and range.

A Psymoritum Squad is tasked with long-range sabotage of both enemy minds and technology. Projecting their will across the battlefield, a Psymoritum Librarian can cause machines and their spirits to go silent, explode or rebel against their masters, or an enemy detachment to go mad with terror and even kill themselves. Terrain, distance and armored fortifications are no defense from such an assault, for the Librarian's range is vastly increased by relying on his battle-brothers for mental support.

>Breacher Siege "Ultima" Squads

For most Legions, Breacher Siege Squads are the tip of the spear for assaulting fortifications and engaging in boarding actions. The Steel Souls have taken this unit one step farther and imbued the Breacher's trademark heavy Combat Shields with defensive forcefields and psy-wards. Their helmets are equipped with additional communications gear and psybernetic links as well.

So long as the Marine's will remains strong, his shield will protect him from extremely heavy counterfire, well beyond the norm for this equipment. If need be, the entire squad can ground in place, uniting their wills and armor to deploy a powerful temporary bulwark. While the Ultimas remain largely motionless in a meditative trance, their Astartes brothers may take shelter behind the force-wall and lay down return fire. Even something as large as a Land Raider may be effectively protected by a full Ultima squad.

Ok, here is once again a completely un-proof-read write up of the Titan Marchers, the Silver Blades, and The Sentinels when they first meet.
Excuse corny dialogue :P

>The Tale of Three Brothers

Je’she ran through the broken corridors of the ruined palace. Power Glaive in hand as his immense armour shrugged off shrapnel and rubble alike. A being of war in the truest sense, his dark grey armour shone with white text that covered every inch of ceramite. The Harrdinese script told of the tales of his people and the myriad stories and legends that the desert tribes of Harrdid told each other to inspire and bring courage to their hard and brutal lives.
“To me, Sentinels of Harrdid!”, the primarch roared to the legionnaires behind him. The space marines eagerly followed their newly found primarch. So eager were they to please him their enthusiasm bordered on fanaticism. Je’She had accepted his legion with great excitement, and hurried to instill the values and morals that had been taught to him. Je’She and his legion were only newly reunited, but the space marines and their genesire quickly bonded. Eager to prove themselves to each other.
Their third campaign called them to quell a separatist system that had refused the Imperium’s diplomats to pledge allegiance to The Emperor. They were to aid the IVth and the XVIIth legion, the Silver Blades and the Titan Marchers, in the assault of the fortress world of Rengan VI. This world was the main defense of the system, and thus was the first priority of the Legions’ assault.

>> No.53466835

>>53466817
The IXth Legion’s fleet had warped into the system shortly after they received the order, with Je’She immediately calling for the mass assault of the planet to aid his brother’s that he had never met.

The primarch charged through lasgun fire as he assaulted the blockaded entrance to the throne room. Cutting through the crude defenses as if they were river reeds. His glaive thrumming with power as it cut through ceramite and plasteel.
Flicking his wrist, Je’She immediately brought his weapon about and with several deadly blurs of his glaive cut great slices in defender’s armour, causing great rends in their chest if not completely decapitating them.
Breaking the first line of defense, the legionnaires consolidated his position, creating defensive flanks either side of their primarch, boltguns raised as they entered the ruined antechamber. Walls crumbled around them as artillery rained down on the defensive batteries and dust sat heavy in the air as the grey space marines continued their assault deeper into the palace. Boltguns raised and triggers ready.

As they continued down the main hall, one of the space marines, brother Sahir, Je’She’s vox officer, stopped as he listened to the intense radio chatter flying amidst the battle.
“My lord Primarch”, Sahir began, “I am receiving a hail from the IVth legion. They require reinforcements in the main palace courtyard. Their primarch and his bodyguard are surrounded and are pinned down in the rubble. They say they are holding, but do not know how long they can last.”

>> No.53466850

>>53466835

Je’She paused, turning to his vox-officer. His soldiers could not see it, but they could hear the suppressed excitement in his voice.
“Then let us go and meet my brother and his men. You know what to do Sahir.”

Then without so much as a pause for breath Je’She was off at a sprint, closely followed by his honour guard. Sahir keeping up a tally of orders for the following companies to assault the palace wings in order to draw enemy reinforcements away from the central courtyard.
They heard the battle before they saw it. The sounds of boltgun bullets and lasgun fire, chainsaws and heavy machineguns, and a great booming voice, echoed down the crumbling hallway as Je’She and his terminator-clad guard made their way to assist their brothers.

They saw the entrance to the courtyard filled with separatist infantry, hiding in the alcoves and crouching behind rubble as they fired into the centre of the courtyard.
However, they heard the rumbling assault of The Sentinels and turned around with a mixture of confusion and terror as they were assaulted by the full might of the Primarch and his chosen Aldrujan.
They fell in a volley of boltgun rounds and power weapon strikes as Je’She ran past them into the central courtyard. Emerging from the shadowy courtyard into the bright clearing.

>> No.53466875

>>53466850
Je’She’s first sight of his long lost brothers was a bearded giant of a man. Clad in silver and wielding a greatsword, the great primarch of the Silver Blades stood at the centre of the resistance. Standing atop a slab of rubble as his Silver Blade legionnaires surrounded him, his voice rang through any amount of gunfire and shouted in a booming tone, and his sword never stopped moving as the Silver Primarch dismembered and cut through the assaulting waves with casual ease. The bright sun glinting off his silver armour as a joyful smile could be seen through his beard.

The small cadre of Silver Blades and their Primarch was surrounded on all sides. The ground floor entrances were filled with separatist soldiers covering assault squads charging into the defenders with fanatical rage. Sacrificing their lives only to be cut down like cattle. Heavy machine gun emplacements in the upper level rained down on the Silver space marines. Slowly whittling away at their numbers as they gradually fell from the onslaught, fighting bravely all the while.

At Je’She’s command, Sentinel bolter fire quickly struck down the rebels manning the machine gun, causing meaty chunks to fly over the courtyard as a hail of bolter rounds struck down the vulnerable humans.
Charging into the fray head on, the Primarch of The Sentinels cleaved his way to his brother with effortless ease. Cutting his way with his glaive as if he was some ethereal ghost, not some lumbering giant of a man clad in a mountain of ceramite.

>> No.53466890

>>53466875
The Silver Primarch noticed Je’She fighting his way towards him, at first not knowing what this figure was.
Surprise dawned on his face.
Then joy.
Then laughter.
“DUDE. ANOTHER BROTHER!
With a terrific sweep of his sword, the Silver Primarch broke through his enemies as a fist strikes water. Breaking bodies apart with his power sword as the behemoth of a man led the attack of the Silver Blades through the separatist troopers towards their brothers. The raw power was inspiring as this single act routed the defenders, leaving them scrabbling over their own dead as they tried with all their might to get away from the two primarchs and their space marines.
As the dust settled, with two legions reunited, two brothers stood facing each other. One, a silver knight so huge Je’She seemed small in comparison to his gigantic brother. His bearded face broken in a large smile. He was the figure of power. Every movement hinted at the power to achieve feats only heard of in legend. His silver armour glinting in the sunlight, and his great power sword was
On the other hand, clad in dusk grey power armour covered in foreign script, the smaller Primarch looked up at his brother, and laughed in delight. Speaking in rusty common, Je’She began,
“So… you are my brother? Our father told us about you. But I was not expecting someone so big!”

>> No.53466901

>>53466890
The Silver giant chuckled at that,
“Nah bro, not all of us are this size, just one or two of us so far. But who knows, the crusades have only begun, who knows where our other bros are? The name’s Linares by the way.” he said, holding out an armoured hand in a warrior’s handshake.
“Je’She of the Watch, and it is an honour to meet my brother on the field of war.”
Je’She returned the guesture. Coal grey armour meeting shining silver.
Linares grinned, “Now time to meet our other bro.”
The two Primarchs walked together through the ruined courtyard towards the throne room. Rubble was everywhere as the dust swirled around their legs. Corpses littered the ground, and blood ran in rivulets in every paveway and crack in the masonry.
As they walked to rendezvous with the XVIIth legion, they received a string of vox transmissions of the assault of the heavily fortified palace landing pad. Personally led by the famed Destroyer of Raat himself.
The two primarchs and their guard fought side by side as they ground their way through the defenders. Breaching gates and fighting through waves of fanatical soldiers.
The Silver Blades and Linares fought bravely in hand-to-hand combat. Nearly foregoing ranged weapons entirely in exchange for the chance to brutally slay their foes with their combat weapons. Je’She and his Sentinels were surprised at first, but quickly adapted as the Aldrujan fell back as ranged support, with Je’She fighting side by side with his brother.
They breached one of the entrances onto the landing pad. The sight they beheld was awe-inspiring.

>> No.53466917

>>53466901
On the open landing pad they could see miles upon miles of ruined city. The setting sun smothered with ash and dust as columns of smoke rose beneath the glowering embers that were buildings. Marching through the smoky haze came dozens of titans. Appearing as heralds of death; their guns constantly bombarding the palace defenses as they made their way to take the landing pad so reinforcements could arrive.
The defensive batteries above Linares’ and Je’She’s heads were blown to pieces, as charred rubble fell down around them. The titans continued to advance. Their weapons smoldered, glowing hot against the dark sky and their colossal footsteps could even be heard above the din of artillery fire. In the distance, a lone figure could be seen riding atop the lead Titan, rifle in hand.
Already rebel troops were setting up anti-vehicle weaponry on the landing pads and fortifying their positions. Even for an advancing titan, that amount of weaponry at such close range would tear chunks out of the great war machines.
With wordless roars, Je’She and Linares charged the defended positions, glaive and sword fighting side by side as silver and grey space marines advanced behind them, chainswords and bolters in hand.
They routed the defenders with ease, as the defenses above crashed down around them. The footsteps of the titans growing ever closer.
With the last of the defenders dead or fleeing, the two primarchs looked up at the titan now standing level with the landing pad, and saw their brother.

>> No.53466929

>>53466917
Clad in brilliant hues of blue and orange, Raj Vokar leapt off his Titan with a heavy thud, looking up at his fellow brothers. Approaching them and taking off his helmet. He seemed completely at ease as he walked towards them, his dark face offset by the bright heraldry of the proud Titan Marchers. His legion symbol emblazoned on his pauldron, and repeated again on the goliath titan behind him. Declaring to all who they were dealing with. The Destroyer of Raat, the Master of the Apocalyptican.
The other primarchs took off their helmets. Linares’ face was the epitome of joy.
“Raj dude! It seems you make quite the entrance, I gotta say you know how to put on a show.”
Raj grinned, “I do indeed brother, if you were with me I would’ve had you on the other shoulder of my Titan. That would be quite a sight.”
Turning to Je’She, joy spread across his face.
“You must be one of our lost brothers, I cannot wait to talk with you outside of this battle. We have much to discuss.”
Je’She smiled as he nodded towards his brother.
“I would be honoured. I have heard much about you and your legion, as well as the Silver Blades, but tales cannot truly show the power of your titans, or of the Linares’ size.” He said with a wry grin.
Raj and Linares chuckled,
“That may be so” Raj said, “but now is not the time for a lengthy discussion, we have a story to make, a tale of us three brothers as we take this emperor-forsake palace.”
And with that, the three primarchs once again donned their helmets, rallied their troops, and began the long assault to the keep, to cut off the head of the snake that blocked the Emperor’s vision, for a glorious future for mankind, with the Primarchs leading the way, all them. United.

Alright, so, the timeline is basically this:
Gyahdred is found right before the Rangdan Xenocides begin. The Brotherhood which really does need a better name, is the front line, the night breakers. This was their intended purpose and the legion has all kinds of nasty weapons.
I'm thinking before Gyahdred, they're insular and mysterious, active from near the beginning, leading assaults against psyker foes and xenos monstrosities. They often work with the sisters of silence and have the technical ability to modify their kit.
Gyahdred fits this perfectly and brings the mechanicum integration to a new level.

Anyways, the Rangdan Cerebrovores and up cursing the legion or bring out the curse in them. At the height of the third war, Gyahdred tries a very aggressive strategy using the librarius. It backfires horribly and a chapter plus is lost in an instant.
The other thing is that in trying to control the curse, some extreme measures are taken, which gives the already infamous legion a dark reputation.
So essentially, the mad scientist in his Schwarzwald Castle sends out a letter asking for advice on psyker stuff, and that's what I've got at the moment.

I'm really conflicted. Should Marduk be a confused and deluded religious zealot who honestly thinks he's saving the souls of the people he sacrifices or a psychotic and violent nut who just wants to please the dark gods because he's in love with Tiamat.

>Marduk
While he has his moments of tactical brilliance, his occultism is dangerous. He should be watched closely.
>Pacha
An interesting and compassionate man, but has issues making hard decisions. A friend maybe, an ally hopefully, but best kept away from our warzones.
>Deshain
All too often am I compared to this thing, masquerading as my brother. He shows no restraint, and is too childish to be trusted.
>Linares
Calm and collected, yet impulsive and stubborn, a dangerous combination if underestimated. His friendship will not be forgotten, although his casual demeanour can be somewhat grating.
>Emil
While his tactics and men are trustworthy, Emil is prone to emotional outbursts. Combine this with their excessive reliance on Psykers, and one has a truly horrific predicament.
>Matlalihuitl
My winged brother is an odd one, isn’t he? He claims to hear voices, but then again so do many psykers.
>Lambach
His confidence intoxicates him, his psychic gift misleads him, and his upbringing means he is little more suited to ruling this Imperium than any mortal. Despite this, I see the two of us as similar, and hope to guide him on a better path.
>Je'She
Takes unnecessary risks protecting mortals and can let his emotions get the better of him, but his tenacity and ferocity are... respectable.

Part 1 of 3 I guess

Yeah that sound decent. I'm thinking Lambach would answer a summons personally and leave the Legion in the hands of Radcliff. Something he does often whenever something takes his fancy. Much to Radcliffs frustration but still takes on the role. Lambach could spend a faor amount of time with his brother and develop the close bonds that leads to them being friends. Then after his big fight with Raj and Linares would turn to your legion for aid.

>Isekho
I never thought I’d see the phrase “The blind leading the blind” exemplified in the flesh. My brother Isekho is a hardened man, and his methods work well enough.
>Yochin
Emotional, religious zealot, unpredictable, prone to extremes, ineffective. True proof that even the Emperor makes mistakes.
>Ashur
His compassion does neither him nor his sons any good. He calls himself many things, all of them thinly veiled hypocrisies.
>Hayden
His patience only hides his emotional side. He may be slow to anger, but he can be slow at many other things, too.
>Gyahdred
He appreciates his dedication to logic and efficiency, such as one could expect from an individual with a Mechanicum up-bringing, but he also feels Gyahdred is... soft. His emotions get the better of them, and he thinks more of what he "wants" to do rather than what he "has" to do.
>Valorn
His stubbornness is childish, but he has seen much hardship. I always feel I can put my trust in him.

>>53468458
>Raj
His optimism and patience do him wonders, and he truly weighs his options. While his outbursts can be troublesome, he has always been a reliable ally.
>Quaestor
His professionalism and loyalty are both helpful and dangerous. Every action must be weighed with this unpredictability when around him.
>Mot
An interesting one, although he seems not to understand when the tyranny must end. I am still unsure of my brazen brother, but I would not be surprised if his ambition were his death.
>Rokuten
Effective, and willing to wage war in a way that sees him handicap himself in order to preserve others, yet willing to make the hard decisions when needed. I could see the two being friends.

Damn it. Now Gyahdred has a respect for Einchurt in spite of himself. I suppose its one of those things where you can only really have those intense emotions across a space of empathy. Sort of a damn it Einchurt, I know you could make the Imperium a better place with me if only you let yourself care. And you don't even spend your time fighting monsters.

Perhaps they meet on the battlefield, get along, the campaign ends, there's the biopogroms to exterminate infected citizens and both legions do their duty. There's respect. And then there's an incident on a human world. Maybe they're not compliant yet, they're considering it. Or maybe there's a rebellion? Anyways, its a situation where there's a more peaceful option that will take a while Einchurt's point is that they're in a hurry and there's time tables to keep to.
Gyahdred says they can take their time with humans, they're the point of the crusade.
Not sure what Einchurt's response is, but I've got a feeling he says that victory is the point of the crusade.

>> No.53469117

>>53468727
Stray thought. I think part of what's up with this is also that Gyahdred believes that if he allowed himself to accept that premise, think as Einchurt does, he would succumb to a form of the Curse of the Elver.
Quite literally, the monster within is the Elver. "It is a psychological construct given tangible form by alien malice. In this way perhaps my sons are fortunate, for where moral degradation and decay of will may pass unnoticed in others, for us it is tangible." -Gyahdred
The Brotherhood of the Abyss is constantly playing chess with madness and that's why they are so fanatically devoted to the ideals of the Emperor. If they gave in to nihilism, the Elver would consume them. (Not that that's the only way to get it-- fury, shock, malefica, extreme stress are more common causes.)
Actually might be neat if there is an Istvaan or Calth betrayal of the XVth. Anyways, in such an event, you'd have Elver in the initial betrayal, and then you'd have survivors slowly going mad with it. The hunt to exterminate would quickly become more like Alien vs Predator.
I'd suggest Lambach as the engineer of such a betrayal, but he knows about the Elver and wouldn't make that mistake, though I think there's a battle or two he wins by making the defenders go Elver and breaks their cohesion.

One of the things I think Malcador does is reinstate their librarius and develop ways to shield minds albeit imperfectly. This and some mild augmentation like Skitarii reinforced to deal with chaos. Alternatively, triggering Elvergang is as dangerous to the attacker as it is disruptive to the legion. Ideally it's a weakness, but not a crippling one.
Next thread I'll do something on the Nosferati.
And if anyone can think if a better name than Brotherhood of the Abyss, let me know.

Might as well give initial information on Calixis-Sector seeing as there is some interest:

In OU, the sector was explored in the mid-36th millennium and conquered 322-384 of 39th millennium. Obviously, in this AU it may be taken by one faction or the other earlier or later, or not at all.

The sector has three notable advantages: notable population of pre-Imperial settlers, high quantity of natural resources, some of which are practically impossible to find elsewhere, and its location to the galactic Northwest of the Eye of Terror works as an excellent staging point for exploring the Halo Stars.

The sector does have its share of opposition to outside advances: Chaos-worshipping alien species of Yu'Vath and the human civilization of Adranti are most notable opposition to would-be-conquerors.

Yu'Vath technology is based on Chaos and other, more local occult powers. Slavers, sorcerers and Daemon-worshippers, and ruthless in war and vengeance alike, they may prove an insiduous threat even after extermination, however thorough.

Adranti, on the other hand, are tecnologically advanced civilization who use many warp-based technologies and understanding of the occult, and in OU, exterminated as heretics to both Imperial Creed and Credo Omnissiah.

Not much more is set in stone of either of these factions, leaving more than enough blank spots to fit them however one wants to a game of Dark Heresy, or in our case, an Alternate Universe.

I like this a lot. Criticism is going to rain about the use of such a casual language, but the ecstasy of battle and the joy of finding a lost brother would justify it.

The problem was never that Linares speaks casually, it's that words like 'dude' and 'bro' don't fit the 40k mood. Simply using spanish words fixes that issue.

If i remember correctly, a few threads ago someone was talking about smoke daemon like things. Did anything ever come from that?

Oh ok, I was thinking perhaps Isekho, for whatever reason, becomes a smoke daemon like creature. Whether that be a daemon prince form or if he just starts to fade out of the materium. Thoughts?

>> No.53472987

>>53472888
There's a bunch of things to consider here. Firstly, the Smoke Stalkers are bound to become a Slaaneshi legion. If a legion-wide mutation causes them to become ethereal, it surely means that their senses cannot be stimulated as much, thus driving them all insane. This would hold true for Isekho, as well. It could be seen as a punishment from Slaanesh due to Isekho maybe not being as indulgent or subservient to Chaos, or them all mutating and Isekho having a Mortarion-like situation where he just throws his hands to the sky and calls out for help from wherever.
