    Yes to both.

    QM: It seems that continuing Gunboat Diplomacy has most votes. I will start writing on Tuesday so if anyone else have anything to say, they have time to do so.

    Note on Combat Shields vs Storm Shields. As you can see from the stats, Storm Shields are superior, but it requires one free hand. This basically forces the user to rely on one handed weapons. This makes them extremely potent for characters or Chapters reliant on melee or for Terminator Assault Squads who use Storm Shields and Thunder Hammers most commonly. Combat Shields in turn keep both arms free, allowing Bolters and even heavy weapons to be used.

    Gracchus, yes, Lemian, yes.
    Equipment: Iron Halo (30), Psychic Hood (20)

    I feel we can add Storm Shields (10) next turn.

    You found Captain Valerian going through the latest reports from the Imperium as a whole. You could see that his concentration was on War of Armageddon on the other side of the Galaxy.

    "Seems like Ghazhgkull Mag Uruk Thraka has fled the planet. Imperium has won the war." He said.

    "It will take years if not decades to clear all the Orks. Armageddon is a large and important world, it is going to require resources from the wider Imperium to be able to rebuild itself." You answered back.

    "Aye. But I presume that you didn't come here to talk about Armageddon, it is about the 1st Company isn't it?“

    You nodded and explained the needs of the Chapter. It was Valerian who had asked to fill the empty positions and you were content on allowing him to make suggestions.

    On position of Epistolary, Valerian suggested Feder Gracchus. While Epistolary Potern had more experience, Gracchus was the better fighter out of these two. In addition Gracchus was known expert against Orks, who are one of the most common enemies of the Imperium.

    Apothecary Maximilian Falkyr in turn would be too valuable to be used in a Battle Company as his skills should be used in the Apothecarion. The young Apothecary Lemian who had participated in the boarding of Emerald Dream should fill the spot. Yes he is inexperienced and he will have to learn fast, but 1st Company is the best place to learn.

    You said that you would consider both suggestions and left Valerian to read rest of the reports.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


    Master of the Forge Gregorius Vero was mildly annoyed by his new bodyguards. They followed him everywhere. They would be a great boon to have around in a fight, but now they were just ten semi-useless bodies.

    You explained the reason why you were here to ask about the production. He had anticipated your arrival and quickly listed what should be done within the few years.

    The number of power weapons and special weapons should be kept at 10 each per Company at minimum. At the moment the Chapter has enough special weapons, but not enough power weapons. In addition acquiring more Errant armours and Combat Shields would increase the survivability of the Space Marines on the field. Librarium might also want few more Psychic Hoods so that everyone above Lexicanums can get one. Finally Iron Halos for those who are important, just like yourself or Captain Valerian would be beneficial. Vero tells you that while the decision is yours to make, he would want his brothers to have best weapons and protection available, so that maximum efficiency can be achieved.

    He also reminds you that when the Chapter grows, the need for more power and special weapons grow too.

    He leaves the decision to you.

    Decisions:
    -Fill remaining empty positions in the Chapter with personnel
    -Epistolary Feder Gracchus for 1st Company Yes or No?
    -Apothecary Lemian for 1st Company Yes or No?

    -Forges
    -Build Orders (50BP available)

    QM: Short update. Basically what was just asked. Going to allow you to decide and see if other people have anything to say over the weekend before I start writing the update proper. As always questions etc etc will answer.

    I agree with Pruitt here, he seems to have good grip on the hardware department, I'm inclined to follow his recommendations on the matter.

    Continuing the Gunship Diplomacy for now sounds good to me.

    Maybe talk to Tigrus again, would he be interested in leading, a "task force" to investigate the Emerald Dream further, since that appears our only lead to what may turn out to be "Heretic" or " "Chaos" activity nearby.

    All the rest seem to be political squabbles, pirates and Orks.

    QM: I will start writing the update early next week, or bit later if the discussion continues, due to yet again having a busy weekend. So you have plenty of time to discuss the plans and what to do.

    Still if there are any questions or things that require clarification, I will be checking the thread often so that I can answer them.

    A couple of days to read and digest it all, S. is writing short stories here, well done



    -Librarium
    -Investigate the disappearance of Emerald Dreams crew

    Chief Librarian Gotch believes that he can possibly conduct a deeper research on the crews disappearance. Knowing how it was done could help the Chapter in preventing similar event from happening in the future. The investigation would take time and during that time Gotch would be unavailable in performing other duties.
    I like that - I always felt like we left unfinished business there…..


    -Fill remaining empty positions in the Chapter with personnel
    Captain Valerian suggest that the positions of Epistolary and Apothecary in 1st Company should be filled. Having dedicated personnel available directly under his command would allow the Company to fight with better efficiency
    Having a company at full strength is always a good idea, have Valerian search and propose candidates for the positions.

    There seems to be no obvious drawback here.

    I like the idea of continuing Gunboat Diplomacy. We need more intelligence on the outer systems.

    Turn 2 Part 1





    As the traditions of Knights Twilight go, new year is always started with a great ceremony to remember everyone who had died and all the great feats they had done. Remembering those who had fallen for the mankind and the Chapter had always been a part of the Chapter and 944.M41 didn’t change that. In total 913 names were said, their deeds and actions in defence of Agathy against the forces of Chaos were told and celebrated. Never in the history of Chapter has there been a toll like this. The ceremony was solemn, but done with pride.

    But ceremonies like this don’t tell the future of the Chapter, it is your task to decide the future and that time was now. You didn’t have to do it alone, you had your council, the veterans of the Chapter and those whose guidance is valuable.

    As the Gunboat Diplomacy was seen as a success, the meetings with Magos Biologis Roche and all the Planetary Governors were fruitful and there were still worlds remaining to visit. If the Gunboat Diplomacy was to be continued, Librarium estimated that it would take maybe two to three years to visit the rest of the Imperial worlds in the outer regions of the Sector without any extra events. Librarium sees that further gathering of information could prove to be useful in light of the findings you did last year.

    The new information regarding the Ork pirates should also be taken in account. Those supporting fighting the enemies of the Imperium more actively suggest that the Chapter should at minimum search the Penubilian Cluster for the Orks and if there is a possibility, engage them and destroy them. It is estimated that tackling the combined Ork pirate fleet would be foolish, but taking them apart piecemeal could be done.

    New action possible:
    Penubilian Cluster Search and Destroy
    With the information regarding potential Ork base of operations in Penubilian Cluster available a plan was made to search the cluster and exterminate the Orks if it was plausible. By taking out the source of the Ork pirate raids or at least disturbing it, you could make the number of raids the traders and other vessels suffer smaller. Destroying Ork vessels would also make it much harder for them to launch raids or invasions on Imperial worlds.


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


    Chapter Decisions and considerations:


    -Choose an action
    -Continue with Gunboat Diplomacy
    -Or choose new action
    -Penubilian Cluster Search and Destroy
    -Havia Ork Extermination
    -Hunting Pirates
    -Ranging the Deep Space


    -Librarium
    -Investigate the disappearance of Emerald Dreams crew

    Chief Librarian Gotch believes that he can possibly conduct a deeper research on the crews disappearance. Knowing how it was done could help the Chapter in preventing similar event from happening in the future. The investigation would take time and during that time Gotch would be unavailable in performing other duties.


    -Apothecarion
    -Try to find suitable candidates from existing Battle Brothers to become Apothecaries

    With the lack of Aspirants or Neophytes to implant, Apothecarion is just on standby for medical emergencies


    -Forges
    -Build Orders (50BP available)
    -Try to find suitable candidates from existing Battle Brothers to become Techmarines

    Master of the Forges Gregorius Vero suggests that while Chapters armoury is rather well stocked, more power and special weapons should be acquired.


    -Reclusiam
    -Give Relics to named characters to use (which and to whom)
    -Try to find suitable candidates from existing Battle Brothers to become Chaplains

    Master of Sanctity Capon informs you that while more Chapter members have visited the Chapel to pray there, he hasn’t seen anything too worrisome. While the new leadership is going to make things bit calmer for some time, he suggested that Chapter should find an enemy to fight to direct the pent up anger and frustration at them.


    -10th “Scout” Company
    -Enact Red Tithe on the Civilized worlds of the Sector
    -Ask Administratum for a recruiting world within the Sector

    Captain Grafft has finished his report on Sectors Civilized worlds. While not suitable for sustained recruiting, a Red Tithe could be used to gather enough recruits for the Gene-seed we can harvest in a few years. Grafft does point out that Administratum wouldn’t like this at all and it could destabilize the worlds for some time.


    -Fill remaining empty positions in the Chapter with personnel

    Captain Valerian suggest that the positions of Epistolary and Apothecary in 1st Company should be filled. Having dedicated personnel available directly under his command would allow the Company to fight with better efficiency

    -Other?


    ++Thought of the Day++
    Victory requires no explanation, defeat allows none




    QM: Bunch of decisions to be made. Choosing the action what the Chapter will do next, how the Build Points are used and several optional decisions. As always, if you have any in character or out of character questions, please feel free to ask.

    I was talking about the beginning of turn 5. Guys, what do you want to use the BP on?

    We need to look at getting more Favors. Do we give any Cargo Ships we "acquire" for Favors or do we keep one to convert to a Strike Cruiser?

    QM: You have at the moment 0 Gene-seed available as you implanted what you had into test-slaves to create more. You will harvest 24 gene-seed at the start of turn 5 and further 24 gene-seed at the start of turn 10. Also you still only have 50 Build Points available at this turn, but remember you can start acquiring more expensive equipment than the 50BP and finish them next turn.

    And very good point on acquiring more ships, it can take time. But it is good to have some long term goals and plans, so that you have something to work towards.

    More information on what could be done and what needs to be decided comes in the next update.
