Kevin, Yngvar's maximum run range with the Jump pack puts him right in front of the Comms Tower entry way. He made it roughly half way to his intended location.

Gunter is feeling the Emperor's Blessing. His armor is impervious to attacks. The Emperor commands him to unleash this terrible power and punish the heretics!

Ok. I wasn't intending for him to land on the ground. It seemed reasonable for him, already being in the air, to a least reach the nearest spot on the middle level of the tower. I.e. the level that ladder in the front seems to reach. Just to clarify, is Yngvar on the ground right now? Or is he just not as close to the horde as intended, but still on the first level above the ground?

He is on the ground. Jump packs can only "hover" if you pass a +0 pilot test. If that is what you want to do, roll that shit.

I'm horrible at juggling.
Rustin picks up sexy Sadie, fires single shot at the grenadier....and misses. Needed a 62, rolled an 86 on invisible castle. Fails, weeps. How have you guys been?

Missing you.

The Grenadier needs a willpower test to break pinning. Since he was shot at, by Rustin, he has to take it at straight WP <25

<25 to break pinning
I rolled 1d100, the result is 84 = 84.

OK fail. I need actions from Pax and Sarlock!

Barrel rolls,mostly.

Pilot Test is go.

Piloting Test AG44
I rolled 1d100, the result is 30 = 30.

While maintaining cover as best as he can when he can, Pax makes his way directly toward the chaos horde, also as best as he can.

Mark, what is Sarlock doing?

I am guessing I'm not stunned then, so I am not sure. Who exactly can I see?

drumandfight
drumandfight's picture

You stopped being stunned last round when you opened fire on the grenadiers to pin them. You spent a fate point to ensure that.

Now you are on your back. The only target in sight is the Commanding Officer of the first horde. Dude is on the opposite side of the chain link fencing, running toward the second horde. Attacks against him are at -20 because he is running, but at least its a target. Half action to stand. He is 52m away.

mruozu
mruozu's picture

Alrighty there we go then. I will half-action stand and take a shot at him. It'll be tough, but we'll see.

BS 56 - 20 (Test) - 10 (Fatigued) = <26: looks like a solid fail, but at least I am standing again.

Attack on Commanding Officer
I rolled 1d100, the result is 38 = 38.

Remind me, what was that -20 for? -10 for full auto, -10 fatigue.... where is that third penalty coming from? and do you not get a bonus for range? I thought Heavy Bolter range was 150m.

mruozu
mruozu's picture

I would get the +10, which I forgot, and another -10 for full-auto, which I forgot. But the -20 was from you. You said he is running, so I get a -20 for that and then a -10 for Fatigue, a -10 for Full-Auto, so even with the +10 for range, I would miss by quite a bunch.

drumandfight
drumandfight's picture

Oh yeah. Jesus, what a retard moment. My bad, yeah he is full running so shots against him. Well, at least he knows the Emperor hates him.

All right. Round 8 is finally finished.

Please post your round 9 actions and all the applicable rolls, bitches.

I'm going to unload with the power. I'm going to look up rolls tonight, but if you want to walk me through it, that's cool too.

As you may or may not have ascertained. I have recently been bitten by the bug that causes a debilitating disease, a symptom of which cause compels me to express myself in GIF, where possible.

DDMW, I assume your going after the grenadiers, right? Not the horde? If he goes for the horde, I'll wait to post Yngvar's action, even though I suspect he'll attack the horde in some manner as well.

That gift was funny as fuck.

DDMW is going after the horde. I still haven't gotten around to re-reading the Avenger actions and touching up on psychic powers again. DDMW, if you wanna go the honors ASAP, I will double check after the fact. Today is a busy day at work. So just hit me with it whenever you can.

I've got my book at home but I'll make that my priority this evening when my wife takes my oldest daughter to her girl scout meeting. It will be done within 8.5 hours.

deadDMwalking

Okay. This is how I think it works. My Will Power is 49. I make an Ordinary test (+10). I will make this fettered, so my effective P's rating is 2. That gives me a further +10.

Focus Power Test 69

Edit. Success for 9 Mag damage. I think.

If it hits it deals 30 divided by 4 rounded up (8) plus 1d5.

I rolled 1d100, the result is 42 = 42.
I rolled 1d5, the result is 1 = 1.

Awesome. I will double check after my classes, but I have faith in your ability to read a CRB.

If you want to give me an IC post to coincide with that roll, by all means. It is your psychic fire after all.

Gunter stands facing the horde. Every fiber of his being screams for him to charge into melee, cutting the bastards down in a torrent of blood, but a small confident voice urges another course. Following the brief lesson offered by Inquisitor Carmillus Gunter reaches out across the vastness of space and lets his mind touch the void - tentatively. He can feel the power asking him to release it; begging for release. Gunter understood how dangerous the warp could be, and he resolved to use just the smallest amount, just a drop of the fire hose of his full potential. The warp power coursed through his veins then exploded from his body in a powerful inferno. The flames took the form of the heretics burned by Gunter and his brothers over a lifetime devoted to the Emperor's wars and Suffering Not a Witch to Live. The inaudible screaming mass swept in among the chaos cultists, blistering skin and turning bodies into blackened charred husks. The power of the warp could not be denied. Could Gunter stay strong enough to use it always in devotion to the Emperor without becoming that which he feared most? Whatever doubts lingered must be put aside - the horde was too numerous to have been completely eliminated by a fettered blast. There would be work for his sword, too.

Fucking awesome. That is the kind of IC post I like to see. Well done.

Yngvar is up!

Yngvar, hoovering over the entrance to the comms tower can see the devastation wrought on the simple and feeble-minded cultists. They are the minds he thinks, that bend the horrors of the warp, those it devours. Confusion overcomes him briefly as his scorned and all but forgotten days he first experienced the Wulfen. Even the psychological transformation was too much. Perhaps that is why it never fully took hold....yet.

Regaining his composure he toward the northwest corner of the comms tower's first level. He wants to see the carnage erupt beneath him and he sees the frag grenade plunge to the center of the horde.

Half move to the corner of the tower's first level.

Half move throw grenade:
BS37+30(horde mag)=67

Real grenades
I rolled 1d100, the result is 88 = 88.

So, as of right now there are three active players in this game: Xerb, DDMW and Fix. Mruozu's move and subsequent PC crash has been a time and resource drain and the guy we are waiting on now (Xerb) is partying with Queens of the Stone Age. Hydrako is on his honeymoon in SE Asia, so posting isn't an option for him. I could make the roll, of course, but this is starting to become habit and I don't really like that.

So, we have some options. I would like to finish out this combat and let you guys reap the rewards of your hard work before putting this game on an indefinite hiatus while everyone gets their shit sorted. Once that happens, I will put up another call for players to see if anyone is still interested.

The problem with the archive is that it doesn't get a lot of traffic these days. I have thought about moving this to another forum in the future, but I don't want to move without the people I started the game with. So, there is a lot of thinking and deciding to do regarding the future of Deathwatch. Whatever happens, I hope those on board now will continue to be on board in the future, regardless of what happens or where it goes.

Hydrako

In Chicago. Give me till Monday and then I'm all systems go again. I'm fine to move anywhere your heart desires my friend. Thanks a ton for the patience. Honeymoons are quite important so I've been told. I'll probably look to insert Hydrako also once we start back after the hiatus. That still ok?

Fixxxer
Fixxxer's picture

I'm checking things every day, but yeah, there hasn't been a lot of activity recently. :\

The fact that since posting this I have only gotten two responses kind of drives the point home.

I miss you guys. My laptop shit itself when I got back, so it's being fixed right now. What's your plan now Drum? Has everyone bowed out 'cept for us three?

deadDMwalking
deadDMwalking's picture

I think the registration issues stemming from those attacks has really hurt the potential growth of the archive. Combined with 3.x being dead many years and Pathfinder being the current favorite. We're all old now. But man - I remember the good old days. *rambles on for 2 more hours*

mruozu
mruozu's picture

Sorry for my lack of posting. Now that things are more stable and what not, I am down to continue on here or anywhere else. I am still with ya. Just had to get stuff sorted out and what not. My bad for not being around that much recently. It's been a rough transition from 3 years of the same in Japan and then coming back here and working two jobs. Also the move to New Zealand is gonna throw things off again, but I will be only 2 hours time difference from ya in Japan.

As of right now, I can keep up with the posting until the end of December, and then I won't be posting much on ANY game until sometime in early February, seeing as I will be travelling around New Zealand and getting settled.

Whatever you decide, I will be back on track for now and eventually in the future. Just some gaps in-between.

<3 hugs and kisses <3

If anyone is interested in continuing this game in the future, then feel free to make an account over there. There are about 5 or 6 40k RPG games running right now, as well as a Star Wars Saga, Stars Without Number freeform, and Pathfinder game going. There are roughly 25 members and over 7,000 posts in 6 months. Shit is rolling.

Hydrako

Word. I'll be over to take a look. Are you going to keep the same Campaign going from this forum?

drumandfight

Yeah, that is the plan. I would really like DDMW and Fixxxer to make a profile over there for just that purpose. I would hate to see Pax and Gunter fade away.

Make yourself known. Post in the player registry, post in the GM registry. Comment on some of the Anything and Everything threads or the For the Players/ For the GM threads.

It is a small group of people so everyone should know everyone else.

If you want to run a game, post a querry for interest in the Recruitment thread. I believe the Star Wars Saga game is in need of another player as well as the Stars Without Number game. Right now there is a Deathwatch game that just started and the current plan is to fold THAT game into this one on the new sight when I move this game over.
