Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

The Helios Guard second wave landed twenty minutes after the Iron Wardens. Drop pods slammed into the ground along the Kestralites' right flank, where much of their armor and artillery had been concentrated. The guardsmen were not unprepared; full companies of infantry stood by to defend the valuabl...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

The interior of the Kestralite command center was as calm as ever. Even as the battle raged in the skies overhead, uniformed officers, safe in their bunker, were discussing options for a counterattack when the Astartes made their inevitable landing. Kestralites were professional soldiers and, aside ...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

Far above Iso's capital, but getting closer with every second, the pieces of ruined ship continued to fall. Burning with the heat of reentry, but holding to their structural integrity, the shattered pieces of metal filled the sky with orange light. If anyone had been able to get close enough, they m...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

The battle yet raged in the skies above Kestral. The Astartes ships had closed the gap with the Kestralite fleet; now, strike cruisers traded blows with destroyers emblazoned with a falcon sigil, while fighters danced and weaved between the explosions that blossomed in the empty space. The battle-ba...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

"Escorts forward. Strike cruisers, take them from above." Celcon's orders were clipped, delivered with mechanical precision. His gaze was focused on six different screens, each showing a different view of the approaching Kestralite ships. Already, long-range torpedoes were being traded between the t...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

The combat-servitor sailed through the air, struck the wall, and lay still. Acanthus Valorum stood knee-deep in the bodies of slain servitors, surrounded by smoke and fire, as he sheathed his gladius and opened the door to the cage in tandem. His new body was strong, fast, deadlier even than it had...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

In high orbit above Rhea, the Imperial fleet began preparations for an assault on the planet Iso in the Traxis Sector. Orders were relayed; geller fields were powered up. And somewhere deep within the heart of an ancient battle-barge, Acanthus Valorum writhed, teeth gritted, as his bones popped and ...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

Valorum rose from his chair. "Then it is decided. We set out for Traxis at once. Half of the Helios Guard will make for Iso, alongside the Iron Wardens. The other half of the fleet will arrive as far out from the main world as possible, and hide in the gravity wells of the twin gas giants. If the Ke...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

Erioth visibly stiffened at Auron's slight; Valorum, however, remained unmoved. It was the way of the Iron Wardens to be blunt and to the point. He had not expected to be rebuffed so quickly; still, it stod to reason that the Iron Wardens would stick true to their character. The question, then, was ...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

Victarion exited the Caestus ram at speed, Captain Daros slung over one shoulder. He gripped his ax in his other hand, but he was using it not as a weapon, but as a cane, a tool to help him maintain his balance as he entered the hold of the Endurance , flagship of the newly-returned Fourth Company. ...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

Acanthus Valorum gestured to his Fourth Captain. "Captain Erioth, please. Enlighten us." The Primaris Marine nodded. "As you wish, my lord. As you know, my Fourth was assigned to combat the Thirteenth Black Crusade alongside the Seventh and half of the First. We arrived shortly after the initial Cha...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

Never before had Daros fought so well. Every move flowed into the next; every counter was perfect, every blow crafted to kill. He fought as he had been made to do, and every ounce of his skill and his hatred was focused on this moment. But he could not do it. Greasy Boff was matching him, blow-for-b...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

Acanthus Valorum strode through through the door of his personal chambers to find Dorrigan waiting there. The serf-commander had removed his hood, revealing the balding head of an eighty-two year-old man. His bushy handlebar mustache was gray, his nose was covered in wars, and great black bags had g...

Re: Only the dead will see the end - RP narrative, season 2.

There was no more time for words. All of Daros' training, all of his practice, all of the last seven years had been subconsciously spent preparing for this moment. He did not waste a moment. Breaking into a sprint, the Third Captain loosed a bolt of plasma from his pistol. The searing blue streak st...
