Got it. I thought it would be easier to know when it switched from character to character if I did it this way, but I think I'll try a different style, seeing as it's become challenging even for me to read.

The easiest way to do it is to start a new paragraph every time a different character starts talking. However, as you can see from me, it makes all your posts 100X bigger.

Ok, good to know. That'll be my strategy for the next post.

I am here Ork. Congradulations on acquiring your new ship.

I have retrieved the terminator armour you had kept for me, though I had to scour the surrounding area of space for many of them.

There were some other marines there too and unfortunately they had to be put down. I wasn't lying when I said they weren't even worthy of being sold as slaves.

The rest of their gear is yours. But there is one thing I'd like as well though. That sword, honour's call would be an interesting trinket and could fetch a good price from the right...buyer.

I have taken the liberty teleporting in the pile of deff guns I promised to you right behind you via web way portal. There is also and empty box there as well, which should be big enough for the space marine's relic sword. Place it in there and it will auto teleport back to me.

Once this is done go back to the control panel and the fly the ship to these coordinates. It should put you back in the Traxis sector where you can link up with the rest of your boyz and kustomize your new ship. I will meet with you in person on it once this has been done.

Well, I'm off, I will see you there ork.

OK, basically, the Helios Guard fleet was surrounded by most of the Dominion fleets, so they attacked the Kestral fleet and did some boarding stuff. All the other Dominion ships showed up, and a big battle ensued. Wolcott's flagship, Hostis Intercept, was boarded by Terminators and Sternguard, but Wolcott was possessed or something similar, and Bloodletters started appearing. Meanwhile, the Space Marines loaded up one strike cruiser with al their neophytes, gene-seed, and a Veteran squad, and were sending it out when the asteroids exploded. The Necrons, Reschtahk, and the Slaanesh marines kept coming, but the Thousand Sons left due to the fact that their enemy was about to escape and that they sensed a bunch of disturbances in the warp form Wolcott's ship.
he Space Marines left except the battle-barge, but the Third Company were boarded and almost entirely wiped out, losing their relic sword. Wolcott was captured by the Dark Eldar, who didn't really do any fighting. The Kestral reinforcements arrived, then the Hostis Intercept blew up. Finally, the battle-barge left, but Reschtahk might still be chasing it, it's unclear.

The Fortis Praefectum combed the last known location of the Obsidian Flare under the guidance of Captain Celcon. So far, they had recovered scarcely a dozen Third Company Marines, three Terminators, and two Dreadnoughts. From what these survivors knew of what had happened, few, if any, others had survived the attack on the ship, or the raids by the Dark Eldar afterwards. Corpses had also been found, Ork and Astartes, including the crushed body of Captain Oberyn, drifting through the void. Honor's Call, however, had not been with him, a fact that troubled Acanthus Valorum greatly. Several of the survivors had seen a brother named Vorellus wielding it before they had been jettisoned, but few believed that he could possibly have survived the battle and subsequent launch into space.

The losses had been high here, but even the recovery of a few corpses and survivors made the journey worthwhile. The Helios Guard had lost almost three hundred warriors in the battle over Balrus and inits aftermath, including forty seven veterans of the First Company, almost a fourth of its strength. Of these, they had recovered barely two hundred bodies, and only twenty four of the First Company warriors had been recovered. All had died honorably, buying time for their brothers to escape, but the losses were there. Not since the Trial by Fire into the Maelstrom had the Chapter lost so many warriors in one campaign.

Valorum rose from his command throne and strode, once more, to the viewport. They would be under way soon, back to Tibur to meet the rest of the fleet, once they confirmed that there truly were no more brothers drifting out in the void. He doubted that there were. Those the Orks had not killed had been slain by the Dark Eldar while helpless in space. Those equipped with Terminator suits had been looted by the despicable pirates, as well. But the Chapter would survive. They had now knowledge of the Whitestone Fortress they had not had before, and no longer needed to follow the members of the Dominion to find and destroy it. Instead, once it was taken care of, they would swear vengeance. Galianostra, Nosnibor, Boff, Wolcott...and Reschtahk. Reschtahk most of all. Valorum looked out into the void one final time, then strode back into the heart of his ship.

Basically, Wolcott fleet's engaged the Helios Guard's fleet prematurely and terminators teleported on the bridge of his flagship, wreaking havoc. He fled deeper in his ship.

Then that's when my fleet appears from the Warp on the opposite side of the Space Marines formation, taking it in a pincer movement while it's engaged by the Kestral fleet. Then the Nurgle/Necron fleet appears and engage the Helios guard fleet. They choose to board the enemy and manage to take some of them. Later, Hedonism order me to send help to Wolcott's flagship. I decide to send a cruiser squadron made of a mix of heavy cruisers and light cruisers with escorts. They were supposed to board Wolcott's flagship, but Aphael (my second in command who I ordered to command the flotilla) hesitates because Wolcott's doesn't answer and he doesn't want to waste his ground force in a useless fight. He also senses that something is amist in it and that warp breeches are being opened in it.

That's because Wolcott succumbed to possession by a Khorne daemon. He proceed to slay his own crew and fresh bodies were possessed by daemons who then attacked the Space Marines. Since the Helios Guard fleet was hopelessly out numbered and was starting to loose a large number of ships after being pounded on the two sides at the same time and that the boarding strike force is facing an increasing number of daemons, they decide to put a bomb in Wolcott's flagship and pull out. Wolcott is dragged to the webway by his inquisitor patron with what looks like Dark Eldar allies.

Meanwhile, I learn through my chief Athanaean, Qezremah, that one of the boarding ship is carrying the geneseed of the dead Space Marines from the Helios Guard and I order Aphael to destroy it and as many other boarding craft that are pulling out. I also try to cut the retreat of the Helios guard with my main fleet. Aphael do it, but the Helios Guard concentrate their fire on his flotilla and one of my cruiser is force to go at the back of the formation, later, Helios' gunners achieve a devastating hit on one of my Heavy cruiser and it allows the geneseed carrying fleet to enter the Warp and flee.

Meanwhile Tigurius ship's shoot the Asteroids and the rubble (with necron automatic batteries installed on them) start to disorganise the Necron, Nurgle and my main fleet which allows to the Helios Guard to slip past us and flee in the safety of the Warp. However, his flagship remains shortly behind to bait Reshkak into a personnal challenge, but the Lord was victim of a putsch by his own sorcerer helped by the Necron Lord and is more or less neutralised. The Helios flagship then enters the Warp.

However, one Helios light cruiser had been secretly boarded by Greasy Boff and his elite Kommandos. After a rather epic fight involving Mork levels of Kunnin', he takes control of the light cruiser after an heroic defence by the embarked Space Marines crew.

The Helios Guard lost aproximatively one third of their fleet, Wolcott's fleet, completely disorganised by the early lost of his high command, suffered heavy losses while my force suffered heavy damage to 3 cruisers, is about to loose the crippled heavy cruiser and also lost 6 escort ships.

Meanwhile, my fleet try to leave the battlefield since the battle is finished and I want to let the Kestralite sort out their problems themselves. But a new powerful Kestral appears from the Warp and do not like how Wolcott's fleet his escorted by Tzeentch, Nurgle, Necron and a few Slaanesh fleet. Wolcott's sister is also on board and want to find out what happened to him. I send a message to the new fleet saying I'm an ally while slightly mocking Wolcott's leadership, but it's ignored. Then Hedonismbot steps up to explain the situation to the new fleet. I've not written what my fleet will do yet, because I've still not find something interesting to write. :)

That's about it. I hope this is clear.

You are no where closer to discovering the secrets of the fortress than you were before space marine. To the victor go the spoils and none of said spoils were yours.

One might even try to take revenge against me though it will not work. I could've made a good amount of money from those marines of yours, but they are are such low value that I decided to kill them instead. They aren't even worthy to be used by haemonculi in their experiments.

If those were your veterans and that was all they could then, do us both a favour and do not waste my time seeking me out.

Though I suppose I should thank you for your generous donation of terminator suits to my cause, so I will allow you to remain alive a bit longer to contemplate your failure.

Now what to do with all these presents....

Solstice Wolcott had called her most trusted officers and soldiers to her personal chambers. Unlike her missing younger brother she had no authority over the fleet other than to Veto the High Lord Admirals decisions and so her private Chambers were the only place on the ship she could ensure she wasn't being listened in on.
She entered the room. In it she saw several officers, all of which she had come to know and trust over her past 14 years in the Guard. They stood to attention as they saw her.

"Major-General!" They all said, making the sign of the Aquilla over their chests.
"Squad! Squad-SHUN!!!" She yelled. They changed their stances, crossing their arms behind their back and spreading the feet at the first word, thrusting their arms further down their back and tilting their heads back at the second.
"Now, you're all no doubt wondering why I've brought you here." She started, pacing around before them. "And I don't blame you. This is a very confusing situation and your only human. Doubt is natural, no, it's a damnright expectation."
She stopped pacing and looked hem in the eyes. "Before I tell you what I'm about to tell you, I need you all to know that I trust you. Some of us I can happily call friends, others, not so much, but you've proven your loyalty beyond any doubt, you deserve my trust. Is that clear."
"YES MAJOR-GENERAL!!!"
"Good. Sit down and relax."

They all did as she said, although visibly uncomfortable with this unusual lack of formality. All except the Lieutenant Colonel, who sat down on Solstices bed. Solstice gave her a sharp glance. She smirked back. Solstice brushed it off and turned her attention back to the officers.
"It has been confirmed to me that the non-human fleets in this system are our allies. My younger brother took the liberty of creating an alliance with them so that they would help him win the system."
The Lieutenant Colonel scoffed. "I knew that Inbred little c*nt couldn't have taken the system himself."
The more senior officers gave off disgusted reactions to her rudeness while the younger ones had to bite tbeir lips to stop from smirking. Solstice ignored her. "How he managed this I do not know, however I have been informed that he made a deal with... someone I can't identify. This person has given me details on everything Ashton did and claims that once they've done whatever it is they want to do, they'll be leaving the system to us."

There were a few disgruntled whipsers. One officer raised his hand "Major-General, I know he's your brother but... this is heresy you're talking about here."
She nodded. "To some yes... but... that depends on how you look at it. I've always believed that the ends justify the means. If this system is under our complete control and the Chaos and Xenos forces leave, then can that reasonably be viewed as treason?"
Not everyone seemed convinced.
"Either way, this indivudal claims that they'll return my brother to us soon. Until then it would be undeniably best to not engage the enemy in combat. Everything they've told me has been true so far. If Ashton has turned to Chaos, we'll find out when he gets back. Anyone disagree?"
There was some more whispering, but eventually they all agreed.
"Good. What I said doesn't leave his room. You are to tell your men that they are awaiting further orders. I've already informed the High Lord Admiral and the fleet that they are not to fire on any ships without my direct permission, but to remain ready to fire at all times. To your duties, fall out."

The officers left the room, all exceor the Lieutenant Colonel, who was still sitting on her bed.
Solstice glared at her. "Is there a problem Harrison?"
"No." she replied. "Well, actually, just one question. What exacty do you plan on doing if Wolcott has turned against the Imperium."
She didn't know. "We'll see."
"There'll be questions asked. And not just from Kestral, the rest of the Imperium
will want to know as well."
"We'll have to wait and find out."
"Right, right." Harrison muttered.

There was a brief pause. Harrison started to bounce lightly on the bed, hitting it with her palm. "You know, this seems much nicer than the one we-"
"Get out."
"Okay, okay, I'm going." She got up, rasing her hands defensively and stepped out of the door. "One last thing though, someone dropped somthing off for you, here." She handed Solstice an envelope."Think you know how to open it?"
"I'll manage." she responded, shutting the door.
She opened the letter and an Inquisitorial seal fell out. In the envelope was a blank sheet of parchment. She checked both sides.
Nothing.
She shrugged and tossed it aside, deciding to deal with it another time. She had more important matters on her mind.

Nothing is not more than nothing Monkeigh.

Save your empty threats for the likes of Reschtakh, I have indulged you long enough and you should consider yourself lucky that I'm even speaking to trash like yourself. Now go limp back to your re staging point like the coward you are.

I've also made it appear that the inquisitor is to blame for your possession Wolcott and this is at least partially true. I would not bring that stuff when you see your family again though.

(OOC Ugh this is what happens when I loose Internet for two days. UGH)
Reschtakh watched the Helios Guard ships from a distance.
"Hmmmm, where are the necrons!"
"Arriving soon"
"The coward is getting away!"
"What would you wish sir?"
The chaos lord paused for a second, by sacrificing many souls to nurgle, he had become stronger. His sword was amped up as well, one strike and the coward would fall. He didn't have the Necron support, but, his fleet was enough. Considering it was untouched, Valorum would fall quick.
"The necrons can wait, ATTACK!"
Reschtakh and 15 of his finest terminators including 5 who served with Mortarion prepared to board the enemy ship.
"Fire upon them for a while first, I have some business to attend to."
Reschtakh walked over to his sorcerer.
"Nas'sugath, will you assist?"
"Of course! Any opportunity to kill the coward!"
"I want to establish something first. Valorum is my kill, his head is mine. When he and J fight, please, do not do what you did when we were boarded."
"On one condition."
"What is it?"
"Give me a minor warband of my own, let me control some troops."
"Consider it done."

Reschtakh and his terminators came to the bridge.
"Prepare to board, this will be their last fight, so fight like it's yours too."
