It's sunday night and I got nothing going on
Anyone up for rolling up a Kabal?

First up, how old is our Kabal? (d10)

Rolled 3 (1d10)

Let's get this shit going.

Im making a small dark eldar force (500pts) that spams beasts so i'll participate to give my guy some fluff

We are young as fuck, either literally formed yesterday or about 2500 years old at most, or, more likely, somewhere in between.

Now, who's our current Archon? (D10)

A Usurping Dracon. Looks like we've already got at least one power struggle on our hands, despite however young this Kabal is.

What's this usurper's personality like? (2d10)

Now, what's that former street gang like now that they're a Kabal, what's their demeanor? (d8)

They're fuckin cultists, practicing rituals that're esoteric and fucked up even by the standards of the deldar.

A 61 sounds pretty good, if high means less fucked up Docks.
As it stands these guys won't be around for much longer, they don't really have anything to offer for the other Kabals, the raiding alone type

Capture Tactics...funny they hate other Eldar and likely all other races but either their cult requires a lot of sacrifices or they are trying to get into the slaving business

Rolled 37 (1d100)

>>82276918

They have an Anchorage. Makes sense they live in a haunted dock and specialize in capturing enemy ships and everyone is an enemy.
Now for the signature weapon of these ragtag raiders, a d10

Wouldn't that be a wych cult though?

Rolled 1 (1d10)

>>82276957

>>82277164
A safe choice, Splinter Weapons. At least we know they don't need the slaves *that* much, meaning they are likely raiding for religious purposes, rather then material ones.
That does leave their port pretty open for business, but for who? Who do they currently hate the least? A d10
>>
Rolled 4 (1d10)

>>82277243
Let's roll for... friends.
>>
>>82277330
By the Muses...they are working with the Ynnari!
Perhaps they require the port of our Kabal for their current mission. I hope for our Kabal's sake they get out quickly before one of our less prudent members puts us in open war against the avatar of Death.
Maybe they are here working with us because of a common goal, yes... a d10 and a d100 for our current enemies (minor and major).
Careful this might be our only way for our Kabal to survive...
>>

>>82277877
Hmm. They are fighting the Imperial Guard...to be fair it's hard for me to say what regiment but so long as the homeworld ain't Terra the Ynnari shouldn't have a problem with it.
We still need the d100 for the minor enemy, as that might offer us a clue to what regiment they are clashing against

Enoulians, meaning Calixis Sector, meaning they are most often clashing against the The Gunmetallicus 41st Regiment and the Scintillian troops.
Most likely they picked them in order to sacrifice them. Maybe the fact that they have particular relationship with teeth makes them a favorable sacrifice, who knows.
Maybe finding out our Kabal's goal with clear it up a d12

Well. OP here, I collapsed after my third all-nighter in a row and just woke up. Gonna be fully honest, I didn't expect this to still be up and running, so it's great to see my expectations having been defied.

>>82278296
drawfag here, i'm interested
>>
>>82278611
surprise, surprise, they are in it for the political power.
So to cap it off: we have a young Kabal of cloneborn Dockyard gangsters with an Archon that performed a mutiny to get into power. Said dockyard is haunted by the souls of the captured Eldar, human and Enoulians slaves the cultists sacrifice in their dark rituals. The reason they are still alive is because they have an Anchorage they likely are willing to share with other Kabals, but more so because they are under the 'protection' of the Ynnari.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a powerplay by piggybacking off of this factions infamy either by working with them or (if they are less prudent try to assassinate one of its leaders).
Well here they are the haunted cultist ,craftworld hating, raiders Kabal that are currently working with the Ynnari of all people.
Hope it doesn't fuck over the lore too much

Alright, it's OP, I'm back again, collapsed again but I'm actually awake. Judging by the basic rolls, I think we're some form of space pirates, but ultimately that's partially up to the people who helped roll stuff up.

For now, let's see what the guard regiment this unnamed kabal is fighting is like.

First off, what's their classification?
>>

>>82281666
It looks like this regiment is a penal legion, the worst of the worst. And they fight dark eldar. Scum fighting scum I suppose.

Now, what's their recruitment criteria? Beyond prisons of course. (d100)
>>
Rolled 36 (1d100)

>>82281869

>>82282018
Priesthood, venerating the god emperor in his aspect of death.
And a penal legion too.
Well that's weird as fuck, but we have a bunch more rolls to do and maybe some of those will shed some light on the situation.

For now, someone roll me the recruitment nature (1d10)

An agriworld. Huh. War priests from an agriworld. Weird, but 40k is a big place and there's all sorts of weird shit.

Now, whats the agriworld like? Roll for its predominant terrain (D100)
>>
Rolled 70 (1d100)

>>82283049
A death cult that has gotten organized so the local government just uses them for multiple tithes and tax reasons.
>>
>>82283336
Lmao, maybe.

Anyways, an Ice World. An Ice Agriworld. What the fuck. The only thing I can think of is that this agriworld is a ranch world, farming beasts and not crops. Maybe. I'm curious as to what the rest of you think.

Now. What're the core units of this regiment? (D100)
>>
>>82283433
Maybe like, the agriculture is in caverns and heated geothermally. Calth still manages to be a functioning agriworld despite not having an atmosphere since the Heresy
>>
>>82283449
That could work yeah. Maybe we split the difference, the ranching above ground, yaks and moose and other ice age megafauna, and the farming and most housing below ground, where its actually warm.
>>
Rolled 29 (1d100)

>>82283433
Had a similar idea. An ocean world frozen and they farm alien whales, seals, and polar bears.
>>
>>82283671

Looks like we know what they do with their megafauna.

Now, whats their specialization? (D10)

Rolled 88 (1d100)

>>82284685
Riding Polar moose bears they do slide tackles into the enemy's lines.
>>
>>82284721

...Moving on from that, it looks like this regiment's creed is Tribal Faiths, primitive an unorthodox beliefs.
Makes sense, what with the priests riding animals

Now, how famous are they? (d100)

>>82285262

>>82285309
Damn.
Obscure in the subsector and even more so in the sector itself. Looks like we got ourselves a bunch of nobodies. Probably a *very* new regiment then.
Now, who's this regiment allied with? (d100)
>>
Rolled 82 (1d100)

>>82285378
Given they're a penal Legion it makes sense they are unknown.
>>
>>82285393
True, nearly forgot about the Penal legion bit myself.

Our regiment is allied with the Imperial Navy

And their enemies are of course that dark eldar kabal we rolled up earlier.

So, barring anything I somehow missed, I think we're done.

I suppose it's time to get to fluffing. Anyone got any ideas, for either of our unnamed fighting forces?
>>
>>82285429
The Kabal likes Dark Rituals, and the Penal Legion are warrior priests? Big connection there. After initial contact, and some limited cultural exchange (POWs on both sides) they might have realized that there are a whole lot of uncomfortable similarities between their respective practices, to the point where exoteric veneration of Big E might be the only significant difference, and they're each trying to wring some sort of hidden insight into their own faith from the other. Perhaps the rituals the Kabal performs only work properly if the Warrior priests are involved somehow (either holding the knife or on the stone). They could also hate each other simply because it is absolutely inconceivable that a lesser race would have access to the same divine revelation that was granted to their cult.
>>
>>82285429
The Kabal could be followers of Phoenex cult. They kidnap other eldar and kill them to power the ynnari and hate craftworlders for hogging all thier souls in little gems. Using slaves as bait for other dark eldar and harlequins to capture and sacrifice or using the slaves to capture the many wondering souls in thier spires. Going by "the kabal of silent shrieks" do to how ghost follow them so. Picking this regiment since they are nobodies. Color wise probably a mix of white and red since one is the eldar death color and the other is the Ynnari color.
>>
>>82285564
Ooh, that works well, but maybe instead we have fated enemies. Like 'our doctrine and faiths say that you are literally satan' and shit like that, straight up holy war as these (probably) fenrisian-derived priests clash against dockside haunted raiders.
>>
>>82285704
It could also explain why the Imps manage to be a volunteer Penal Legion; the Eccesiarchy and/or inquisition recognizes that they aren't heretics as such, but their practices and beliefs are way too strange to really get any sort of support from the broader Imperium. (Like the fenrisians would be if they didn't have 30,000 space marines parked on their home world)
>>
>>82285792
Oh yeah that makes a bunch of sense actually.
...If the guard world is fenrisian originally, and the kabal is basically worshipping their satan, then maybe we tie the kabal into norse stuff. Maybe... Niflheim? Fits with the ghost thing, and we can tie their ship stuff into the Naglfar.
>>
>>82285870
I mean, if there's any single place in the known Galaxy that fits the description of Niflheim, it's Commorragh. (With all due respect to the Eye of Terror and the Maelstrom)
The Kabal could also have some connection to an Exodite population that was present on the planet before Imperial Colonization. Being half-born doesn't mean they can't have a culture or history of their own, just that they're poor scumbags who can't afford to carry their children to term naturally.
>>
>>82285990
True. Hell, we could have the exodites be their point of contact with the ynnari.

Actually, let's look at this a bit further, by just summarizing what we rolled for the kabal.
Kabal's young, their archon is an ambitious and hedonistic former dracon who usurped power. The Kabal itself originated from groups of lowborn deldar defending their territory, and they fucking HATE other eldar, especially craftworld ones (shame at their roots?). They're cultists, practicing weird and esoteric rites, and they're based at the docking spires, their base being haunted but at the very least having an anchorage. They specialize in capture tactics and yet use splinter weapons, and despite hating other eldar, they work with the Ynnari. They of course are at odds with that guard regiment.

So, any thoughts at what to do with the Archon? All we really know is they, like their kabal, is niflheim/norse based
>>
>>82286134
If we want to go with having some Exodite influence, it's pretty well established that fallen Exodites and Craftworlders can become Dracons fairly quickly just by dint of the fact that they're all Trueborn, which would make him stand out especially if he somehow got stuck running with a pack of half-born lowlifes, since he'd have more experience and education (even as an Exodite) than your average half-born who is mostly self-taught. It could also explain his vendetta against the previous archon, if he was kept as a favored slave, made his way to Dracon by sucking up to his Archon, and then killing the Archon once he had enough power consolidated under him. Also, it could be a "she," maybe one who introduced the rites they follow.

I think we can tie our back story, our Eldar hatred, the ynarri connection, and the haunted docklands all together. Other kabals wanted to enslave us and/or take our land. We fought real hard, to the point of being recognized as a kabal ourselves, but it was a losing fight. The first archon was a proud badass type, the most leader-like among us. He was also determined to go down fighting on his turf. But, before things could come to a head, some important-looking ynarri offered us a safe place to relocate. Many of the kabalites wanted to take the deal, but the archon refused... so one of the dracons stabbed him in the back.

The ynarri leads the Cloaked Void to the abandoned docks and tells them they can have it, so long as they keep people from investigating the spirits too closely. The new archon agrees, but over time his men start getting involved with the spirits anyway (hence the cult). They themselves are hostile, demanding, but still valuable to court. Whatever faction the ynarri worked for still uses us as catspaws sometimes, offering knowledge of the spirits. This is cause for a lot of resentment, of course. Living eldar in general tend to be motherfuckers.

Is this lore acceptable?

Oh we're done with the Kabal, someone just made an offhand comment about how the beast we were rolling was basically a primaris, and I liked the idea enough to want to roll up a chapter.

If you guys would prefer not to, that's fine to, but I thought it might be neat.

Anyways, strategic prognostication. Someone decided to preemptively found a chapter before some big ass threat showed up.

I'm gonna skip the founding date since, with the ynnari shit and the primaris comment, it only really makes sense for this to be an ultima founding.

Nothing stopping us from doing both. I'd love to hear your ideas for the Kabal lore. For instance, any ideas on whose ghosts are haunting the anchorage? Maybe Vect's old political rivals, maybe a previous Kabal, maybe the old archon and those loyal to them, maybe something else?

Yeah it's probably enough to establish that the Archon's Pet is a Blood Angel Primaris. Oleander Koh is an example of a pet space marine held by the Thirteen Scars coven.

Does everyone else like the idea of the current Archon being a fallen Exodite? Insofar as Dracons tend to be trueborn, and the Kabal itself is half-born gangers, it goes a ways to explain why they have a usurping Dracon in the first place. It also gives us an introduction point for some of the Dark Rituals. The dockyard may have already been haunted, but the Exodite introduced rituals to allow them to interact with the ghosts. Or something. I also like the idea of the archon being a woman.
>>
>>82306001
we could have a corsair Archon and an Exodite Crone
>>
>>82306012
Maybe. I liked the idea that she's originally a pleasure slave captured in a realspace raid, who worked her way up the food chain from the very bottom. She hates all Eldar because she feels like the Exodites are backwards hicks, the Craftworlders are liars for claiming they'd protect her homeworld, the Harlequins are so cringey it makes your stomach churn, and the Deldar themselves are disgusting, half-born sewer rats who are barely more than animals. The Ynnari are psychotic death cultists who have been duped into worshiping The Great Enemy, but at least they pay well. Maybe the deposed Archon was a corsair.
...also if the pet is a Blood Angel with the Red Thirst, it might be fun if it slowly becomes corrupted into being a willing participant in the Dark Rituals because there is a whole lot of Blood involved.
>>
>>82306001
So, the previous archon was a former exodite who introduced the rituals for seeing and interacting with ghosts to the kabal, and the dracon who became the new archon usurped them because they weren't actually a deldar?

Works pretty well. Hell, maybe a lot of their rituals are derived from exodite shit to placate world spirits. It even gives an extra reason for the former Dracon to launch a coup. Exodites are a hell of a lot more restrained and moderate than the deldar and the new archon is a hedonist.

You're fine.

Seems like the beast is resilient. (+1 wounds.) Rolling for additional wounds.
>>
>>82306125
No, I was thinking that the current Archon was the Exodite. Dark Eldar don't have to be born in Commorragh; any Eldar can become a Dark Eldar. For Craftworlders they'd have to participate in enough debauchery to server their connection to their soulstone, but with Exodites the process should be more or less immediate upon leaving the Maiden World, since they no longer have a connection to the world spirit and have to start feeding on the suffering of others to slake their soul thirst.
My idea was that she introduced a lot of the rituals before she appointed herself Archon. This could possibly be caused by the kabal needing a way to deal with the local population of ghosts once they moved into the docking spire.
>>
>>82306237
Very possible yeah
In that case, I'd say the timeline looks something like this

>Exodite leaves maiden world, ends up in commoragh
>Exodite, being an exodite, is relegated to the lowest echelons of commoragh, and falls in with the street gangs of low-born deldar around the Anchorage where they first entered the city
>Shortly after said exodite joins up with the gangs, a deldar pops up thats charismatic and ruthless enough to unitr the Anchorage gangs and form a Kabal. A side effect of this is massive loss of life.
>Shortly after this new Kabal is formed, the Anchorage becomes haunted.
>Exodite, being an exodite, gets called in to maybe fix this shit
>Exodite succeeds, brokering an uneasy peace through strange rituals and turning the ghosts into an asset of the Kabal.
>Kabal leans *hard* into these rituals, even going slaving to get people to kill and add to the ghost army.
>Exodite gets more and more power in their position as ritual-keeper, decides they like that power and the privileges that come along with it, and they want more
>Exodite builds up power and launches a coup, becoming the newest archon.
>Sometime during all of this, the Kabal captures a blood angel and doesn't kill him because reasons. Maybe they wanna do super special rituals using him. Maybe something else.

Anyways, that's my thoughts on the matter. I'd love to hear other opinions.

>>82306531
Maybe initially. However the souls would very likely not be Eldar simply because Eldar souls have a "being eaten by Slaanesh" problem. That doesn't mean Aelindrach isn't involved.
>>82306452
>>Kabal leans *hard* into these rituals, even going slaving to get people to kill and add to the ghost army.
This could be the start of their relationship with the Imperial Guard regiment; the Warrior Priests from that regiment give their rituals more power. It could also lead to some great "what the fuck just happened?" Moments where the Kabal actually intervenes to save the regiment from utter destruction on a few occasions, because ultimately they'd lose out if the regiment gets destroyed. Say, the regiment is encirled and cut off from Imperial lines, and the Kabal rolls up, wipes out the enemy, then kidnaps the wounded soldiers and disappears, giving the Commissar even more problems since now Ordo Xenos *and* Ordo Hereticus are breathing down his neck.
>>
>>82306531
Very possible yeah.
Now, any ideas on how the guard regiment became their enemy?

Maybe the kabal raided them due to their fenrisian descent, since the world spirit of fenris has a lotta similarities to exodite shit?
>>
>>82306815
Oh I like this a lot. The Kabal is literally farming these warrior priests and their animals for their ritual shit and as ghosts.
>>
>>82306815

Here's how I see it in my head; the agriworld regiment represents a caste of shamanistic/totemic cultists that had lingered from before the world's settlement, or sprang up in response to the agriworld's exports. Their worship, while extremely occult and bordering upon witchery, still fell inside the acceptable tolerances of the particular judge who oversaw their sentencing as they recognised the Great Bear/Hart/Wolf as a close enough Imperial analogue, and they were happy enough to square the differences away and mark it against the governor's Imperial tithe. The crime of subversion earned them an eternity of impressment, and in return for their warlust no one looks too closely at their worship.

The conflict between them and the kabal might come from the unusually accurate haruspicy of the priesthood, holy divination placing them squarely in the path of the kabal at every turn. A form of ritual warfare wages behind the veneer of mortal battles, a dark mirror reflecting each upon the other.

I just dislike it when people take a couple matching components and go "Oh Iceworld Cavalry? They must ride on bears exactly like Kislev!" "Oh Iceworld Shock and Awe?

It makes the galaxy feel small and uninteresting to me, like Luke Skywalker traipsing around the stars only for everyone he meets to be some blood relation or friend of the family. Instead of trying to come up with something interesting on its own right, we just point to a prior thing and leave it at that.
>>
>>82307741
I mean they could just be another iceworld that was populated by Scandi neopagans prior to the long night. It's not like we don't have a pretty solid life of conjecture for how exactly the fenrisians ended up with the culture they have, even if they themselves don't know how or why they believe what they do.

They have a cool thing about Luontu, protective spirits and also the third part of peoples souls that watch over and guide the people whose souls they're a part of. Maybe those Luontu equivalents are the priests mounts, or the priests *believe* their mounts are Luontu.

>>82310913
Hot damn. I didn't expect *art* when I started this thread, holy fuckin shit. Great job drawfriend.

Now, moving on from that awesomeness, I think we have three major directions people've been taking the kabal lore.

1. The first is of course the niflheim angle, but I feel like that got kinda dropped early on. Still putting it here for posterity

2. The second is the 'relocation' idea, detailed here: >>82304062

3. The third one is the 'exodite' idea, detailed here:>>82306237
>>82306452

So, anybody got any strong preferences one way or another or are we gonna just try and fuse the two ideas together?
>>
>>82311423
I think 2 and 3 fit together pretty well.
>>82310913
Very cool!
>>
>>82311423
We can use the character from 3 in the story of 2. That's what I vote for.
>>
>>82311423
My votes for 3, maybe with some touches from the Niflheim angle?
>>
>>82311594
Yeah and also because it's very much the IG regiment's perception of the Kabal, it doesn't have to be 100% accurate to what the Kabal is actually doing.
>>
>>82311423
As the author of 2, I guess I'll vote for it.
>>
>>82310913

>>82311536
>>82311594
>>82311782
>>82311837
>>82312482
Welp.

Looks like the answer is 'a mix of all 3'.
...This is gonna be absolute hell, but let's see if I can wrangle all three of these fuckin ideas into a single coherent whole.

Let's set the scene.

Commoragh is at war. This isn't uncommon, it's honestly mundane. But multiple factions of the Dark City, including various minor Kabals, are currently duking it out over a portion of the docking spires, a portion that includes an Anchorage.

This part of the docking spires also happens to be the home of one of the larger concentrations of low-born deldar, though they're split up into various street gangs that constantly war with each other.

But seeing as their homeland was going through more shit than eastern europe in world war 2, one deldar decided to do something about it.

Through charisma, cunning, chutzpah, and carnage, he crushed the various gang leaders under his pointed boots, turning the lowborn deldar of the Anchorage from a terrain feature into a faction in their own right, adding an entirely new and very deadly front to the tiny war.

And in the midst of all of this, an exodite enters the Dark City, at that very Anchorage.

The exodite, being an exodite, falls in with the only crowd willing to not instantly kill her (though killing her later is totally on the table because, well, deldar), the former street gangs of low-born deldar that're on the rise.

And to cut a long story short, the low-borns win, they get strong enough to become known as a Kabal, and the new Archon, due to both his subtle calculating nature and his judicious use of mandrake assassins, names it the Cloaked Void.

And also surprise surprise, due to all the murder and the recent khaine gate breach (and also a secret surprise tool that'll help us later), this portion of the docking spires along with its Anchorage is super omega ultra haunted.

(1/3)
>>
>>82313655
And here's where the exodite comes in. Because, being an exodite, the new Archon says that the exodite is going to fix this. The exodite asks what happens if she fails. The Archon says nothing but does give a tiny smile that the Cloaked Void has dubbed his 'worse-than-murder smile'. The exodite complies.

Somehow, the exodite succeeds, drawing on world spirit rituals and exodite customs and brokering an uneasy peace between the Cloaked Void and all the deldar they killed. Now the murder ghosts work for the Kabal. It's good times.

As a reward, the exodite gets to fight a Dracon to the death. She murderizes the Dracon and bada bing bada boom, she's now a Dracon.

Also while this is going on, the Cloaked Void goes hard into these exodite rituals, and even starts going on capture raids solely to get captives to turn into ghosts, instead of for other stuff too.

Now the exodite is both a Dracon and the ritual-master, making her the second most powerful deldar in the Kabal. The exodite decides she like that power she has and the privileges that come along with it, and that she wants more.

And this is when the Ynnari come calling.

See, the giant group of ghost eldar is obviously appealing to the devotees of the eldar God of death, but even beyond the Ynnari know there's *something* in the Anchorage causing these ghosts to appear, and they want to make a deal with the Kabal.

They don't want much, just for the Kabal to keep said something out of the hands of two people. The Decapitator, because he's a creepy fuck with magic powers that the Ynnari are kinda scared of, and Vect, because he's Vect.

The Archon, being both a heavy purveyor of the services of the Mandrakes and sponsored by Vect (because obviously, like ‘single deldar unites a bunch of other low-born deldar and kills off multiple kabals’ has Vect’s name signed in blood) refuses.

(2/3)
>>
>>82308436
We could use the animal spirits angle for their preferred fighting style as well. Like Scandi berserkers taking on the pelts and supposedly the aspects of certain animals. Have them perform a ritual before the battle, anoint themselves in the blood of the guardian animals and fight with the holy rage of its spirits.
>>
>>82313659
And so, given literally the perfect opening to gain more power, more privileges, and the good graces of a faction with a lot of power and privileges, the exodite launches a coup. Spoiler, it’s successful.

So now the exodite is the Archon and one of the first things she does is take a look at the giant ghost-making *something* that’s been at the center of so much shit.

And this is where the Niflheim stuff comes in, because the *something* in question is the Naglfar, a half-built ship with significance to Ynnead and a (supposed) role in the Rhana Dandra. The ghosts each pass on a sliver of a fraction of their essence to the ship, the equivalent of the nails that make up the Norse Naglfar.

And that’s about everything I came up with for the lore of the Kabal of the Cloaked Void.

Also sometime during all of this, the Cloaked Void (aka the Archon) gets their hands on a red thirst/black rage Blood Angel successor chapter Primaris marine. And said marine is either a pet or a slave depending on who you ask.

So yeah. Thoughts? Edits? Anything? Ultimately, while I *am* the OP, this is fully collaborative and I’m legitimately excited for any changes you all would propose.
>>
>>82313665
That pretty much covers everything. I would mention that the Exodite didn't arrive in Commorragh by her own choice, and is instead an escaped slave (killed her owner?) but she adapted pretty quickly.
We still don't quite know why their rivals are the IG regiment since so far the story don't really give them time for realspace raids but that's okay. That can just be a consequence of having a few semi-functional ships and an anchorage berth.
>>
>>82313713
I figured they were the raid targets of choice after the events of the archon's rise to power happened. Maybe something to do with their mounts, so that each soul, mount and rider counts as 3/2 of a soul.

...And now I'm just realizing that we didn't roll up the guard regiment's ally.

Anyone up for doing that or is there no real point? Personally I'd prefer to but its up to you all.
>>
>>82313811
I thought their ally was the Imperial Navy? We can also fudge it and have their ally be an Ultima Founding Blood Angels Successor chapter

>>82314095

>>82315157
Oleander Koh is a great example of this in the third Bile book, even though he's an Emperor's Child and a masochist. I think having the Archon using his Red Thirst to tease the Bangle would be fun. Even if the Primaris aren't as susceptible to it, the Deldar would find a way to bring it out. You might also see the archon being strangely attached to her pet, as people are.

Voidships are massive beyond belief. Thoroughfares and access tunnels for machinery reach every major part of a ship that can stretch kilometres in length. Storage bays and silos need to house cargo loads that would sink modern cargo ships.

Rolled 5 (1d10)

>>82320347
It's just telling for these retards to immediate think an Eldar would have sex with a human instead turning him into a literal pet via the power of fleshcrafting and mind-breaking torture, in order to mock and insult the space marines.
>>82320386
Might as well contribute something.

They will die for the God Emperor!

>>82320405
>>82320407
They adhere to the emperor and his creed but don't go full fanatical.

Now, what special equipment do they have? (D100)

>>82320405
>Por que no los dos?
They are hedonistic so who knows, but yeah, I'd rather it didn't immediately go that route.
>>
>>82320405
You've officially complained about it in more posts (2) than it was directly addressed earlier (1) and no, >>82315358 was not originally meant to imply coupling; Spess Muhreens are basically eunuchs in any case (though fleshcrafters can fix that.) I'm pretty onboard with the idea that the pet is wearing a wrack mask and has pain enhancers plugged into his black carapace ports so he can't move without being in constant agony, but is overall rather stoic about it unless the Archon cranks the dial. The Archon having a bit of an emotional attachment to it is normal for a pet owner but is otherwise noteworthy because Deldar don't usually have an emotional attachment to much of anything.

Blessed wargear
The Omnissah smiles on these lucky bastards.

Now, what are their beliefs? (D100)

Rolled 10 (1d100)

>>82320788
>Jungle/Swamp
>Blessed Wargear
We can look at the Indonesian reverence for the Kris for inspiration, pull some bits and pieces if we want it to be a specifically holy weapon. Or it could be a more motley collection of holy items that they carry about, or even just that the mounts they use are the blessed ones. A certain kind of horse (or whatever other creature or vehicle we end up using) that seems supernaturally lucky or some such.
>>
>>82320913
Ooh, I do like the Indonesian angle, could be fun to explore.

Also
For The Homeworld: pride in the world they came from.

Now, how famous is this regiment of navy armsmen? (D100)
>>
Rolled 9 (1d100)

>>82321223
>>
>>82321392
Once more, obscure as fuck, barely known literally anywhere.

Not the best but that's okay.

Now, their allies are the previous gusrd regiment, but who're their enemies? (D100)
>>
Rolled 42 (1d100)

>>82321447
>>
>>82321549
Chaos space marines.
Damn.

So, to recap we got:
A group of navy armsmen, tribespeople/gangers from a jungle forge world, they're a cavalry group and specialize in trench warfare (which im choosing to interpret as close quarters tunnel fighting instead of actual trench warfare, because, well, cavalry), they wield blessed wargear and fight for the pride of their homeworld, despite being basically unknown. They're allied with that previous group of cavalry and their main enemy is a group of chaos space marines.

Any fluff suggestions/ideas?
Also, anyone up for rolling up those CSMs?
>>
>>82321625
Death to the False Emperor. What dice ya need?

What the fuck?
>>
>>82321625
>jungle forge world
Maybe they set up shop in the effluent runoffs of the forgeworld, both the marshy grounds outside the greater factories and the actual pipes themselves. Waste water treatment cisterns, liquid slag dumps, whatever chemical runoff drains out into the wastelands, all fed by aqueducts big enough to hold a fully mounted raiding party abreast. Gives them a predisposition towards the cramped tunnel fights of a voidship's interior too, as they might have frequent run-ins with disposal crews cleaning out the pipes or mutated wretches trying to subside in the sewers.

>>82322083
How the fuck do you read this? Three different legion splinters banded together?
>>
>>82322143
The head Legion splinter must be a Daemon Prince or a chad of a Chaos Lord to get them to fall into line.
>>
>>82322052
>>82322078
>>82322083
What the fuck.
...Alright, let's see what this is

Two legion warbands allied with each other and allied with... a third legion warband

So.
We're gonna be rolling three individual traitor legion warbands all working together. To make it simpler I'll have people roll 3dx

...How in the FUCK are they enemies with a *single* guard regiment???

...alright

Who're the progenitors of this allied group? (3d100)

Probably best to just stack the rolls, only got so many posts left in the thread
>>
>>82322228
>>82322237
>>82322277
So would it be Black Legion and two Word Bearers or two Word Bearers and Alpha Legion?
>>
>>82322323
I like the former.
>>
>>82322188
>...How in the FUCK are they enemies with a *single* guard regiment???
There was an incredibly unfortunate incident involving an astropathic dick pic and a flickering Gellar Field.
>>
Rolled 1 (1d2)

>>82322277
That was my intention yeah.

That being said, for this roll and this roll only, I'm also gonna take the first two ones.

So...
Black Legion, Word Bearers, and for the third I'm gonna roll a d2. If it's a 1, Alpha Legion. If it's a 2, Iron Warriors.

Now, how devoted are they to Chaos? (3d10) (I'm not gonna do the 'automatically' options because I personally think pure randomness can lead to more interesting outcomes)
>>
Rolled 8, 6, 2 = 16 (3d10)

>>82322348

>>82322348
That being said if you all disagree with my choices re: randomness, just tell me. I'll be okay with going back to less dice.

Fanatical black legion, neutral word bearers, and loathed iron warriors

Looks like we got ourselves a little switcheroo here.

Now someone roll 2d12 for who the black legion and word bearer splinters worship. As the iron warriors loathe the gods, they don't worship the gods. If you roll a 12, roll twice
>>
Rolled 1, 1 = 2 (2d12)

3d100 please, not 1d100 3 times.
>>
>>82322487
>>82322499
You know what. This works
Black legion has the gods above all, word bearers are merciless bastards, and alpha legion are battle maniacs.

Now, how do they act? (3d10)
>>
>>82322453
It really is just webway New York.

Rolled 6, 3, 6 = 15 (3d10)

>>82322548
>>
Rolled 7, 6, 1 = 14 (3d10)

>>82322548
>>
>>82322563
The black legion and alpha legion splinters are filled with hunters and ambush predators, possessing both patience and cunning
The word bearer splinter meanwhile is full of ruthless bastards who take no prisoners

>>82322565
Well, I needed 3d10 anyways for the next one, so I'll just use this.

Physical mutation wise, both the word bearer splinter and black legion splinter are twisted to the point they don't resemble normal humanity.
Mental mutation wise, the black legion splinter hallucinates and has trouble remembering shit.

Now, someone roll me 3d100 for the figures of legend of each splinter.
>>
Rolled 5, 62, 81 = 148 (3d100)

>>82322656
>>
>>82322672
Alright, black legion is a champion of my choice, which I'm just gonna roll for

Word Bearers is a chaos champion or possessed

Alpha legion is a terminator.

Now, someone roll 3d100 for what they did.
>>
Rolled 19, 52, 43 = 114 (3d100)

>>82322778
>>
Rolled 66 (1d100)

>>82322778
Whoops. Forgot to roll
>>
>>82322787
Black legion figure is a possessed who was a scourge of the Imperium, having ravaged many planets and slaughtered many servants of the emperor

Word Bearers was a chaos champion who corrupted an entire sector, plunging them into the grip of chaos

Alpha legion was a terminator who slaughtered a hero of the imperium.

Now, someone roll me 3d100 for the Homeworlds of these splinters.
>>
Rolled 17, 89, 7 = 113 (3d100)

>>82322824
Despite being neutral to Chaos, Word Bearers still taught the Imperium about the love of the Dark Gods
>>
Rolled 93, 48, 88 = 229 (3d100)

>>82322824
>>
>>82322862
>>82322862
Gonna use this for category
>>82322862
And this for terrain

So
Black legion splinters homeworld is a toxic feudal world
Word bearer splinters homeworld is a fleet
And Alpha Legion splinters homeworld is a toxic feral world.

To be honest, we could have all three splinters based around a single world, word bearers in orbit and the other two on the ground, and not really change much.

Id love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

Now, what are the combat doctrines of these splinters? (3d10)
>>
Rolled 5, 10, 4 = 19 (3d10)

>>82323007
I'm fine with the different planets. Chaos isn't exactly known for being organized/centralized
>>
>>82323007
I like it being a single planet actually. You could have it as a massive recruiting ground, the two ground based legions fostering their own little faction of humans to pit against each other in an eternal wargame and the Word Bearers playing an impartial third party.
>>
>>82323148
Ooh I like this a lot

>>82323110
The black legion splinter, fitting for their position on a toxic planet, uses chemical weapons
The word bearer splinter uses terror tactics
And the alpha legion splinter prefers death from afar.

Now, what special equipment do these warbands have? (3d100)
>>
Rolled 27, 74, 65 = 166 (3d100)

>>82323187
Hope they get some cool shit
>>
>>82323211
The black legion splinter has some sort of bestial companion type deal, probably some weird ass poison animal from their homeworld

The word bearer splinter has unique daemon engines, never before seen

And the alpha legion splinter has special mounts, once again probably from their toxic homeworld.

Now, how strong is each warband? (3d10)
>>
Rolled 78, 72, 18 = 168 (3d100)

>>82323284
>>
Rolled 4, 10, 5 = 19 (3d10)

>>82323328
Whoops accidentally had too many 0s
>>
>>82323341
Well, the Black Legion splinter is slightly understrength, and the Alpha Legion splinter is average size, but the Word Bearer splinter is massive.

Someone give me 2d10 for why the Black Legion and Word Bearer splinters are so small and so big respectively
>>
Rolled 4, 10 = 14 (2d10)

>>82323469
>>
>>82323507
Well, the black legion splinter *is* strong, its just spread thin and everywhere.

The word bearer splinter on the other hand... just... picked up... a renegade space marine chapter
Welp
More rollan I suppose.

Anyways, beyond that, we don't really need to roll anything else.
The allies of these warbands are each other, and their enemy is that one guard regiment.

So, yeah.
Thought, suggestions, opinions?
>>
>>82323833
So Black Legion got thinned out and they decide to make a join warband with Word Bearers since they had numbers and seemed like a solid idea. While Alpha Legion is there for some grand keikaku I assume.
>>
>>82323900
World wise it seems that the alpha legion infiltrated a black legion splinter world while a bunch of the black legion splinter were away, and then word bearer ships popped out over said world, and then everyone decided to not kill each other and instead form an alliance.

Either way, if anyone's interested in fluffing out the rolled factions some more, i might make a second thread.

Assuming people want one that is.

I'm guessing she doesn't really take the field often, but when she does, she leaves the melee work to primaris-kun.
>>
>>82325954
Cloaked Void is a shooty kabal. Melee means something's gone wrong.

She also cares more about that marine than most of her soldiers.
>>
Hey, OP here
Got an idea just to tie everything back together.

Thoughts on the renegade chapter the word bearers are bolstered by being the former chapter of the Archon's slave?
Also ill probably put up thread 2 in like an hour or so.
>>
>>82326227
I mean, why the heck not?
>>
>>82326295
I feel like it would be a pretty big deal if an entire chapter of Primaris went Renegade. Though it could lead to Pet convincing/ begging the Void Mistress to intercede on behalf of the imps who were fighting them, assuming he was still a loyalist himself. That could be an example of the Cloaked Void helping the tribals and their Imperial Navy allies avoid complete destruction at the hands of other enemies (and ensure they continue to get a decent harvest of prisoners for their rituals)
>>
>>82326822
Yeah fair enough. Could be a mixed primaris and regular marine chapter, but I'm kinda attached to the idea of closing this loop.

Anyways, I won't be able to start a new thread now because it's way too late and I'm trying to get a semblance of a healthy sleep schedule. So if all of you can somehow keep this thread alive, even though we're so close to the sage limit, that would be amazing.

I promise I'll post the new thread the moment I wake up.
>>
Very well good sir.
Let this be a boomp of many.
This Cabal reminds me far too much of Vampire coast, cross dark elves to let drop so easily.

Holy shit anon thank you so much for keeping this thread alive. I have no idea what dark sorcery you used but I thank you for it.

So. I posted the new thread here: >>82330143

Should we archive this thread? Is that possible?

Once more, thank you all for helping bring this to life, I cant believe we've done this much in a single thread.

I hope to see you all in the next.
