Yep, shortly after the Ork WAAAGH‼!! Crashed face first onto the planet. All the Imperial cities were smashed to rubble, and amongst the ruins the Ork meks built up new ramshackle ORK towns from the scrap.
Orkoid mushrooms started growing everywhere; squigs, gretchins and snotlings started crawling out of every nook and cranny. Before long the entire planet had become something completely unrecognizable.
You, along with the rest of the survivors quickly found themselves faced with an ultimatum: "Do wot I says or Iz bash you up." And so began your exciting new career as a slave.

Yep, Life's pretty tough under the new management.

You crawl out of your shared shack ready for another hard day's work of transporting raw sewage in and out of Da Pile O'Dakka.
Looking around, your task master (An Ork Runtsherd named Stink 'Ead) is nowhere to be seen, and without him all the grots and squigs he's supposed to be watching are meandering off.
Looks like you can do whatever you want?

There's zero chance of overthrowing the Orks.
And little hope of improving your standing in a society where size = status.
May as well enjoy your new life as best you can, Emperor willing.

You don't really know what a human can do to "enjoy" herself in an Ork town. So I guess it's time to find out. And the Fungus Bar seems like the perfect place to start.

Feeling a bit nervous about entering a bar full of unruly drunken Orks you decide to look around the back instead.
Peering around the corner: a mean looking brewboy chucks a huge rubbish bag on the ground and bustles back into the bar through the backdoor.
Some Grots scramble out to rummage through the trash. Meanwhile an Ork boy stinking of booze lies passed out on the ground.

Are "humies" even allowed to buy stuff with teeth?
Only one way to find out. This is too good an opportunity to let go to waste. You pick up a pair of slipjoint pliers from the trash. And get to work.
You pick a loose looking one and fasten the pliers. "Do it quick. And pull as hard as you can" you think to yourself.

Roll to pull the tooth without waking the Ork.

(Rolled 35, Success!)

Placing one foot on the patient's chest your yank as hard as you can. The tooth pulls free and you fly backwards onto your rump.
You smile as you hold the ivory fang in front of your face, but when sleeping greenskin groans and starts to get up. You scuttle around the corner and hide clutching your toof tightly.
Peeking out, you see the Ork pick himself up and stromp off, grumbling his "Toof 'urts" as he goes.

Now you're cooking! Time to see if you can't buy something good in this forsaken Ork-infested world.

Honestly, all you want right now is a drink. Even some horrid alien swill sounds nice about now.
You slide into the bar through the back door and creep past the brewboy while he's busy stirring his slimy cooking pot.
"All right. This is it." You gather up your nerve and walk up to the bar and hop on a stool.
The other patrons take no notice of you. And fortunately for you: the bartender is just a gretchin.
"Hey. psst." You try to get the grot's attention as he ignores you.
A neighbouring Ork bangs his fist on the table and shouts. "OI! RUNT! GET ME A 'NOTHER FUNGUS BEER."
He gets served right away. Looks like that's the way things are done around here.
Though you don't really want to draw attention to yourself.

If you're going to have to shout, may as well go for broke.
You slam the bench with both hands. "OI! GROT! SHUTUP AND GRAB ME A FUNGUS BEER."
Your female, human voice sounding throughout the bar at a completely different pitch to the background Ork mumbling.
The puling Gretch looks a little confused but nonetheless submits to your aggression.
He takes your one toof and comes back with a HUGE frothing green tankard of Fungus Beer.
And by the Golden Throne is it a bizaare drink, strong as a Spacemarine with a weird mushroomy aftertaste. But it *is* booze.
Suddenly the world turns upsidedown. One of the Ork boyz has grabbed you by the leg and is dangling you in the air.
"Hey look, dere's a humie what's havin a drink with uz Orkz!"
Dopey ork laughter surrounds you.
"Dats mine now." Says another, picking up your fungus beer.

There's no use in fighting. You go limp and sniffle as your precious beer disappears down the ork's gullet.
The ork holding your ankle gives you a shake, flopping you around.
"Bit of a dead fish dis one."
"Dat's the fing about not-Orkz izn't it?"
Your lack of resistance, quickly bores the ork and he decides to play "toss da humie".
He hoists you over his shoulder and with a bellowing WAAAAGH‼!! he throws you as hard as he can.
Flying through the bar doors, you crash head first into a mushroom covered trash heap and black out.

When you come to, it's already night time. Your pliers have been taken, leaving you with nothing. No toof, no beer, no pliers.
The activity and volume of an Ork town is apparently unaffected by the daynight cycle and there are still orks moving about everywhere you look.
You slowly get up, feeling heavy bruises across your body and a rumble in your empty belly. Maybe you should go home...

Crawl back to the Runtherd for some slops and a cot in a leaky shack?
Screw that! Opportunities await, and you refuse to just lie down and be a slave.
You pick up your battered body and sweep away the junk, it's stealing time.
You climb up a Wotch Tower and find the Watch-Grot sleeping on the job.
Relieving him of his magnoculars, you look around for a good mark.

There are a few options of different risk/reward levels.
(Note: Your character can die if she tries something dangerous and fails.)
DC is the number you have to roll over on a 1d100 average of 3 roll

Whatever this thing is, it looks valuable.
It's definitely not something made by orks, but still remarkably alien. Regardless of its alleged "Time stoppin" functionality, if it's worth 100 teef it's a good steal.

Perched on a workbench in a Big Mek's shop, it's not going to be easy to steal. The hulking ork moves about fiddling with things randomly. But when you hear the sound of welding in the back you know it's now or never.

roll 1d100, same deal as before: 1 roll per ID, average of the first 3 rolls.
Roll over 60 to swipe the Chronometron without the Big Mek catching you.

Yeah I wanted to give them accessories to indicate them as Warhammer40K characters. But could of think of any that aren't military tools/weapons. There's 1 a munitorum tattoo, 2 a wyrdvane psyker's belt, 3 the guard helmet and 6 a tie with the Inquisition symbol.

It is my privilege to welcome you as a citizen of the Tau Empire and guide you to your proper place in the Tau'va."
The blue skinned xeno bares her teeth, attempting a human smile.
She slides some papers across the desk.
"This is your synchronization test. It will help us in determining your mediatory needs and your new occupation. We have copies available in High Gothic and Low Gothic."

>"Foul xenos! What makes you think I'd have anything to do with you?! "
The alien shrinks nervously. "You must not say such things! You will be given Demerits!" She leans forward and whispers in a grave tone "Humans with 10 demerits are sent to Enhanced Remediation."
You glare at her. Stupid alien, with her blue skin and undersized boobs.
She exhales a deep breath and hands you a pen. "It is not a fate I would wish on anyone. Please for you own sake, try to cooperate."
You begrudgingly take the pen and pull up the paper. The questions pertain to your skills and attitudes towards Tau.

You fill out the form indifferently. No point antagonizing them just to suffer some twisted alien punishment.
You'll comply for now, but stay true to the Emperor in your heart.
Glowering at her you slide the paper back across the table.
"So what exactly is this 'Enhanced Remediation'" you ask.
The Tau crumples up and goes quiet again. "...for the Greater Good, it is better that you do not know."

She looks over your test and gets out a small PDA device.
"I thank you for answering honestly." She hands you the device.
"This is your Holocron, your identification and digital assistant. You must keep it on your person at all times."
You take the device, on its screen it reads some of your personal information, 0 demerits and 0 merits.

After you "mediation session" a Fire Warrior begins to escort you to your new residence.
You sit on the Mag-Rail, watching the half renovated imperial ruins whoosh by.

The emblems of the five Tau castes are known to you and there's no mistaking the symbol of Tau royalty.
This must be a palace of your new xenos overlords. A good place to park a Leman Russ.

After your last stop on the Mag Rail the sun has gone down. The Fire Warrior directs you to a dwelling habitation (of Tau architecture) in one of the more wartorn, less refurbished parts of the city.
"This will be your new dwelling Gue'la. Hold your holocron to the electronic lock to open."
Not responding to the alien, you hold up your cron to the lock opening it with *bleep* you step inside and close the door behind you.
You look around your new residence. It's clean, and sparsely furnished the cabinet's full of Tau made clothing in your size. There is only one room.
...So this is your life now.

"You baseline boys should learn to confiscate it back. Helps ya live the good life under these fish-sticks."
"Thanks for the tip. The name's Cas Vaede, 85th Tephrost Regiment."
"No kidding? Wisby, Tephrost 8th Light Infantry."

You end up smoking by the window of Wisby's room playing cards and swapping stories about the "good old days". Back when you had a clear purpose in life in service to the Emperor.
You take comfort in confiding in him, even as he totally cheats and wins several "IOU 1 ration card" from you. You learn a bit about life under Tau, the Ratlings in particular are coping pretty well thanks to their theiving ways, the Tau haven't really caught on yet.
Hours later as you thank him and leave, he gives you one last piece of advice: "Be careful who you trust, once you get those demerits the only real way to get 'em off is to squeal on your mates."

...

The following morning you are sitting on your bed wondering what to do.
A Fire Warrior is supposed to meet you at your apartment in a few dai'kor and take you to your new occupation.

The Fire Warrior arrives punctually. It looks like the same one from last night, though it's hard to be sure.
Without greeting you, he takes you on your commute. You ride the magrail into the heart of the city in uncomfortable silence.
While riding the elevator to the Drone Factory he finally speaks.
"I wonder. Gue'la. How many Tau did you kill before your army was vanquished?"
You ignore him, he's trying to make you mad. Get you to do something stupid.
He continues: "I myself shot down dozens of humans. It was quite satisfactory."

Though tempted to cut him down a notch, you ignore his bait, he gives up, though you can feel him seething.
You emerge from the elevator on the 50-somethingth floor of this large alien factory.
Relatively speaking of course, compared to a Hiveworld Manufactorum it's as a big as a tin shed.
"Wait here, your Fio'Ui supervisor will be here shortly.", the fire warrior descends down the elevator leaving you alone in some sort of entry area of the factory floor, surrounded by bizaare information panels and signs in incomprehensible Tau language.
After a few minutes waiting no one shows up, you wander deeper into the facility and bump into another Tau.
"I am Fio'Ui Ka'mais, supervisor. Are you Gue'la Cas Vaede? You are 5 Rai'kor late."
"What? I got here 10 minutes ago, that Fire Warrior told me to wait here."
"I will not tolerate your excuses. I fine you 1 demerit for your lateness, and 1 additional demerit for shifting blame on an honourable member of the Fire Caste."
Your holochron emits to sharp buzzing noises. Fuck.

Not wanting to receive further punishment you say nothing. At this point you feel it's best to not speak to them at all.
The supervisor gives you a brief primer on your "valued labour" and what is expected of you. Before sending you off to work.
It's fairly simple work. Most of the time you simply supervise some machinery on the Drone Assembly lines and occasionally getting signals to make adjustments.
[Tech Use] You take to the work very easily. Quickly picking up how to do things correctly without error.

One of your coworkers pipes up. "Fine deal we've got here ay? Beats living your entire life in the bowels of some piece of shit Manufactorum. Only 10 hours of labour a day, and you get the WHOLE day off every 5th day! Paradise."

Maybe he's happy, but chances are, if he's so happy, he's probably willing to snitch on us if we say anything bad.

You wonder about the man's motives. Is he trying to trick you? Or maybe he's playing 3D Warhammer and sizing you up as a potential rebel? Or maybe he's just happy his lot has improved.
Not wanting to take any chances you give a mild response: "Sure, it's good."
The man smiles. "The names Jokh just so you know, ooo! I'll give you my ID so you can call me on your 'chron."
10 hours (or six and a half Decs, as your Holocron reckons time) of work later a chime signals. With some elation the human workers around you start shutting down their equipment and leaving the factory one by one.
Fio'Ui Ka'mais, approaches you. "Your days labour is done, take these." He hands you some small tickets with Tau writing. "These are your ration cards, you will be given more at the end of the day every fourth day."
"Where do I go now?" you ask. "That is your choice to make. As long as you do not violate the human curfew you may ride the Magrail where you will."

Probably best to go home and rest for now. You have a lot to think about.
Remembering the way well enough, you take the Magrail back to your habitation block.
You exchange one of your ration cards for some meat tins and biscuits and head back to your room.
Not long after, a door tone signals you have a visitor. Your Water Caste "Mediation Advisor" T'olku.
"Greetings Gue'la Cas, I hope you are well. I brought you a gift to commemorate your first day working for the Greater Good."
She holds up a small potted flower.

"...thanks?" you give her an autistic stare, "Do you get a flower for every one of your appointees?"
"You are my very first appointee! I want to do my best for Tau'va."
She hands off the pot to you. And continues.
"I am sorry to hear there was a misunderstanding between you and Shas'la Tash today. I made an appeal and your transgression was reduced to 1 demerit."
Nonplussed, you say nothing and wonder what her alien ulterior motives could possibly be.
"Hmm I can see that you are tired. I will see you on your Aun'Rotaa* for our first Tau language lesson. Until then, call me on your Holochron if you feel lost."
You watch her disappear into the elevator and close the door. A flower? How odd. You wonder if it might be BUGGED. Come to think of it, there could be a tracking device *anywhere* in this room.
Setting aside your (((Tau Holochron))), you closely examine all your furniture and sift through the flowerpot's soil but find nothing. Well, looks like the coast is clear for now.
With no orders to follow, now is a perfect time to sharpen your skills.

Looking around for a place to excercise you find there are stairs that go lower than the "bottom" of the elevator.
Stepping through a jammed autodoor down the stairs you find your self in the first basement level. It's Imperial, looks like they built their habitation block right on top of the ruins of a human one.
There's no electricity, and no windows leaving the dusty corridors dark and grim. You almost think you can see shadowy figures lurking just at edge of visibility... Anyway, time to hit the gym!
You find a relatively large room, stripped of all its furniture leaving just random bits of loose bricks, debris, and plenty of space. There's even some metal pipes sticking out of the wall making for great pullup bars.
Under the dim glow of your Holochron's flash light you hone your body's strength for the day of the net. It's a fairly decent location, you should lock it down.

This should be enough to cover our asses, while we are in fact training for our convictions.

A temporary measure.
I'm sure we can improvise a more elaborate form of concealment later, fix up the autodoor or something. These xenos seem idiotically accommodating so perhaps a bunch of wet floor signs would suffice.

Additionally, whether or not we end up using this space, it wouldn't hurt to properly explore it's layout. See if there are any alternate entrances that weren't completely buried or blocked by rubble. There also may be scraps of useful imperial tech littered amidst the wreckage that slipped beneath the fish tacos' notice. We'll never know unless we look.

Stop being nice, xeno, you are confusing me.
Also the bug is in the holochron, which makes sense. Don't think we can do anything about it

I don't think we are prohibited from getting swole. Blue dude said do whatever, just don't violate the human curfew

These jerks are always looking for an excuse to give us demerits. They'll probably accuse us of bulking up in order to sabotage them somehow.

Yep, hopefully this graffiti will hold up in court.
Better get back to your apartment, it's back to the Drone Factory tomorrow and you wouldn't want to be late...
