Hive Desoleum - Unknown Location

She grins and shakes your hand. She then snaps a finger and one of her goons comes by and pulls out a data chip handing it to you. You easily confirm the thrones are in it with your own equipment.

Sketch looks a little on edge but you can tell he will not disobey his boss.

The barkeep shrugs a little. "People are restless. From what I hear the big wigs have lost contact with most of the Imperium due to some crazy warp storms but what do I know. Just rumors I hear. Gangs taking advantage of less law bringers roaming around down here."

The leader grunts. "Fine, 600 it is!" She spits in her hand and holds it out to shake yours.

"Sketch can tell you general location these thieves normally hide out but we don't know their actually hideout location. Your gonna have to do some investigating."

"How does 500 thrones sound. Should be a fairly easy job and since I'm in a generous mood I think that's very reasonable."

"A Babyface who calls himself Lord Pain." she leans back in her chair and crosses her massive arms.

"You probably don't know much about the gangs here since your new. He's one of them high noble boys who isn't heir to their fortune so thinks he can suit up, come down here and be one of us. Bunch of punk b!&$$es trying to take out their mommy and daddy issues on those who weren't born with silver spoon in their mouth."


Cringeworth Filthington III

They barkeep eyes Cringeworth. "You got thrones buddy?"

After you toss show him your money he hands you a drink.
"I hear there some trouble with some of the gangs down here. Maybe some rich folk could use some extra protection from the recent violence been erupting more than normal. It's like folks been loosing their minds faster than normal recently."


Aubrey Knight

The woman smiles wide. "It's an ehm... Old family heirloom!"
She crosses her legs and you notice they are extremely muscular.

"It's a small box when you open it plays music with a little figure inside that spins around. Shouldn't be that hard for someone like you and your friend to get back."


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum - Unknown Location
0520124.M42

"All work no play I see. Maybe some play after the work is done then." she grins a bit showing gold teeth in her mouth. "Some people took something of mine and I want it back. Now normally I would just send my boys to get it but you see this is a big tricky because I don't want to start a war down here. Not good for me, not good for them and definitely not good for the rest of the hive down under. We want this item returned to us quietly without them even knowing it was us who did it."

The woman gives CW a look of disgust when he walks over with his proposition. "No way slug! I know who you are Mr. cheat! Hands off!"


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum - Unknown Location
0520124.M42

She grins wide as Aubrey approaches and the giant Chopper behind him.
"You surely do look like a man of many skills." she reaches out with a hand when you get close enough to touch you but Chopper steps between you and her as if protecting his master and she backs up a bit.

"So loyal! I dig it. Please have a seat." she sits down in her sofa like chair and there are other comfortable looking seats near here where you may sit.

You can feel the others in the room watching you and Chopper. You get a feeling they don't trust you but they are loyal to this woman and probably wouldn't do anything unless she said so.


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum - Unknown Location
0520124.M42

Sketch leads you through the hive weaving in and out of different locations. You see all walks of life here, some noble born, some as low on the chain as can possibly go and then some even lower than that the further down you.

After about 3 hours of traveling Chopper seems to be getting a bit agitated from all the traveling through the cramped hive. He's definitely not use to this but pushes on as he watches your back.

"Were almost there." Sketch says.

A few more turns and bends you come to a shop in the middle of a very busy area. There are 2 goons outside who have a lot of body modifications and tattoos much like Sketch. They nod at him and let you and Chopper in.

Inside is so bizarre that you hear Chopper snicker a bit at what he sees. You see people getting tattoo's and piercing all over their bodies. Also body modifications like you have never seen before. Pleasure and Pain has no description of this place when it comes to modification.

A voice shouts from across the room "Welcome friends! Come come!"

When you look toward the voice you see a very muscular woman with a pink mow-hawk and tattoo's/piercing all over her body. She barely wears anything and has a bolt pistol holstered on her side.

The two men eye Aubrey up and down seeing his weapon and medals of honor on his uniform. One of them spits on the ground at their feet and pulls the other away. "Not worth our time brother." the one leading them away says as they move into the crowds.

"I knew you were the right guys for this job! Take no s!!% from no one!" the freak says to you. "Names Sketch by the way, lets go now."


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum - Hab Block 25837.03
0520124.M42

The freaky man nods once and you spot 2 gruff looking men wearing red tattered red robes, almost clergy like, looking and pointing in the direction of Chopper. You can hear one of them say "What the hell is that mutant doing up here!"


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum - Hab Block 25837.03
0520124.M42

He lowers his voice some. "Well you see, my boss needs some muscle and you and your friend here are some serious muscle. There been some troubles in the under hive between some of the gangs and we need someone neutral to take care of some business for us so it doesn't look like it came from us you. Since your no longer with the suits and need some thrones as I'm sure they took oh so well of such a great hero like you." He says the last part a bit sarcastically. "You understand?"


Cringeworth Filthington III

Hive Desoleum - Under Hive Pleasure House
0520124.M42

You sit at a table watching the girls dance sipping your brew and you notice other patrons glancing at you periodically. Your reputation for a cheat has hindered your game quite a bit down here. The girls know your loose with your tongue but not your thrones and the men may slit your through if you try one of your schemes on them. Life is as it should never a dull moment.

Across the room a fight breaks out between two burly men who were trying to get the attention of one of the dancing girls.


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum - Hab Block 25837.03
0520124.M42

The man smiles wide eyed. "I knew it! I knew it when I saw that goon bring you here! Man it really is my lucky day!"

He calms down a bit before continuing and makes a serious face. "I bet your looking for work on that there screen arn't ya? How about I find ya a job making more than any of those jobs ever could? Huh huh? You and your friend here I'm sure could make a killing."


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum - Hab Block 25837.03

Chopper just grins down at the little man while Aubrey talks.

He looks to Aubrey again. "Hey man no disrespect intended!"
His eyes go a bit wide as he notices all the metals on your uniform.

"Hey! Are you that guy? You know the one who was like last of his unit? Took out a whole buncha greenies and stuff? on some wacky green planet and things? I heards some rumors someone famous was comin ere! HEY EVERYONE IT'S THAT FAMOUS ARMY GUY!" he yells the last part really loud.


Aubrey Knight

As your utilizing the data port some junkie walks up to you and Chopper. He's wearing tattered clothing with tattoo markings all over his body and his face is covered in piercings.

"Hey man, spare a lo'stick?"

He looks at Chopper closer when he asks and grins a bit showing rotten teeth.

"Don't see many of these big lugs in this area."

You can obviously tell he's probably not from this section of the Hive based on the others in the area.


Aubrey Knight

You have no problems getting you room access code and make your way to it to rest before doing whatever it is you wish to do. The room is small, 2 bunk pretty standard. No kitchen area just resting and bathroom.

There are a few data access ports in the building that you could easily do some searches for possible job opportunities and such.


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum Shuttle Bay
0520124.M42

The serf nods and looks to see if you have any belongs but don't see anything except what your carrying. He leads you out of the shuttle bay area and into the hive proper and the first thing that hits you is the smell. The smell of billions of people living together in a small area and it's not pleasant! Chopper rubs his nose and grunts.

"Stinky place"

The serf chuckles "You'll get use to it."

He leads you through the busy alleys and street passing numerous different type of shops until you reach a tall structure with some people hanging outside.

"This is where you will be staying. Class A accommodations." he snickers at that a bit.

"But seriously they could of put you up into something worse. I'm sure you'll be fine here with your friend."


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum Shuttle Bay
0520124.M42

The serf looks a bit confused and tries to regain his composure.

"News is your to be taken to quarters where you will be given free room and board for one week at which time it will be your responsibility to find a job and pay for your own expenses. Plenty of opportunities for someone of your qualifications."


Aubrey Knight

Hive Desoleum
0520124.M42

It's approximately 124 years after the 13th Black Crusade

The stormbird makes it descent through the atmosphere of Desoleum and you can see the massive Hive in the distance. Surrounding the hive are areas of desert and acidic seas that could only be formed from waste liquid spills and the such. A disgusting sight but you've seen worse in the worlds of the Imperium.

You and your comrade are the last survivors of a lost company once part of the dreaded Hrax 33rd Regiment. Due to the cirumstances and your dutiful actions in slaughtering the Orks you were given a leave from the Imperial Guard.

The Guard and their wisdom decided Desoleum would be a good place for your retirement and here you are. The stormbird lands somewhere below mid hive where you were told is where most outworlders reside and your greeted by some landing serfs.

"Welcome to Hive Desoleum Lieutenant Aubrey Knight." the serf looks over to the huge Ogryn and is a bit taken back with the look of shock on his face.


Placeholder for new game.


"We call this planet Dusk. We are a simple people and will remain so. Come with us if you wish."

He turns with his men and they walk away.

###########################################

That concludes the Haarlock's Legacy. 3 years later we finally finish the story line. You stopped Haarlock from returning but are now stranded on the planet Dusk (a primitive planet with zero technology). What fates await your characters you will never know (or will you?).

Lets start gearing up for Black Crusade. Get characters ready and get rolling on the dark side!


You all wait around for something to happen but nothing does. It eventually beings to rain as the clouds move in and your left on the hill top alone with the destroyed mirror door.

After some time the tribesmen you met earlier move up to the hill once again and their leader speaks.

"It seems you have done what you came to do. The old lady vanished after the face vanished from the skies and wondered if you survived or not."

He takes in his surroundings. "It appears you are now stranded here with us. Your welcome to stay with our tribe."

You all realize that any electronic equipment you were carrying is now fried and you have no way of communicating with the outside world.


Sister takes a hit from the explosion but her armor absorbs most of the damage and still lives.

Moments later, as the eclipse arrives and Dusk is plunged into cold darkness, the image of the black sun forms with the furious outline of a contorted human face with blazing white eyes. A howl of rage and frustration echoes across the surface of Dusk as hurricane-force winds rip through the swamps and forests, scattering the witnesses to the ground with the force of the turbulence in the air. The face fades and the eclipse passes as lighting and thunder break on the horizon.

It appears Haarlock has been thwarted and his Legacy ended...


Your faith in the Emperor allows you to keep going without any fatigue.

Finally your able to dig deep enough to topple one of the pillars. As it falls the mirror door is torn apart in a spectacular haze of silver light and a thunderclap of noise, and the posts shatter explosively, showering the area with fragments.

damage: 2d10 ⇒ (5, 8) = 13
You may attempt to dodge


The three of you dig as fast as you can using whatever tools you have as the dark shape grows closer and closer to the sun.

Everyone please make Toughness checks as it's very tiring to dig like you guys are now.


graki awareness: 1d100 ⇒ 26

Graki sees the same thing Auraxis does.

"Dig out the posts! The earth is weak maybe it will collapse! he yells as he starts to dig with his hands around one of the posts like a wild animal digs a hole to bury it's bone.


Auraxis you noticed as you were beating on the pillars the ground under it appeared to be looser earth.


Everyone can make an awareness check


Your weapons appear to bounce harmlessly off the pillars as you unload on them not even leaving a scratch.


jackal dodge: 1d100 ⇒ 75
Sister manages to finish off the last standing old nemesis standing before the gates.

What do you wish to do? The dark shape is extremely close to the sun now.

The man with the Jackal mask shoots at Sister semi-auto.
attack: 1d100 ⇒ 94
BIG MISS!

Sister is up and then top of round.


Universal and Disney!


You should be doing 2 bullets for semi-auto

Damage 2: 1d10 + 4 + 2d10 ⇒ (5) + 4 + (7, 5) = 21
Tearing 2: 1d10 + 4 + 2d10 ⇒ (8) + 4 + (3, 3) = 18

Greel Dodge: 1d100 ⇒ 72

The hellfire rounds tear into Greel like a knife through hot butter as his body explodes into a million pieces!

The man with the Herron mask fires a semi-auto blast at Arauxis.

As sister Revanche approaches the door with her gun drawn a man suddenly appears out of thin air. He is talk dressed in a black robe holding a long staff. Auaxis recognizes him as Greel from the House of Dust and Ash.

Another appears next to him wearing a Herron Mask holding a bolt pistol.

And a third appears on the other side of him wearing a Jackal Mask holding a bolt pistol.

Greel speaks. "I do not think you will be doing any such thing sister. It is time for Haarlock to return and no one shall stop it from happening."

Init please!


On the hill you have the mirror-door. One imprisoned between two rough posts of deep black stone that jut from the hill's crest. The mirror-door shivers and fluxes angrily, pale arcs of ghostly force rippling across its surface. Beyond it you can faintly make ou tthe shape of the Blind Tesseract and the Iron Daughter. Unlike the other places where it disappeared this one remains.


The dark shape in the sky grows even closer to the sun as you debate your actions.


The old witch cackles madly as they walk away.

"Good luck servants of a false god." you hear as you move further away from her and back toward the 2 mirror doors. Above you can see the dark shape gathering closer to the sun.


"The choice is yours. If you wish my knowledge you must pay the price but be warned. Time is running out."

She looks up at the sky and you see the dark shape moving closer to the sun.


The witch rubs her chin examine the three of you.

"You will each give me something in return for your answers."

She looks to Sister Revanche first.
"Your soul burns brightest of the three my dear. You will agree to give me your immortal soul."

She turns to look at Auraxis.
"Your soul fire is bright but tarnished" she cackles a bit. "From you dear confessor your gift will be forfeit to me."

Lastly she turns to Graki and scrunches her nose.
"And for you abomination. Your right sword hand will be my gift for these answers."

"Do we have a deal?"


She laughs menacingly for a while while watching you all as if she was looking into your souls.

"He came to me when everything else he tried failed, and even then, his pride would not let him beg. No, not that one. Will of iron enough to overturn the universe if he could, heh! He’d walked the past and found he could change ‘nuthin, walked the future and found nothing that wouldn’t turn to dust in his hands.

‘What can I do?’ he asked me ‘Where can I fi nd the power?’ Hah! ‘Hag tell me!’ he demanded!

"He paid my price," she says, tapping the canister beneath her nails before carrying on, "So I told him. I told him the only place that would end his desires would be the black star, and that’s where he went and that’s where he’s reckon’ to return from. Only what’ll walk back wearing his face, not even I knows."

"But he needed someone on this side you see, needed a link of blood and desire to turn the key of his machine, a beacon to light his way across the abyss beyond the Warp, to come back where no-one had come back from before, and you lit that beacon up for him! You an’ the others with your murderin’ and your lying and struggle, all callin’ him back across."

"Now the dark star is rising over this world, blotting out its own sun, just as it did the day he walked into its embrace, and on that hill his foot’s gonna fall again."


Your team follows Ephraim and the party and after a few short twists and turns through the mist-shrouded swamp land the tangled swamp opens before you into a moss-strewn clearing centred around what appears to be the ancient wreck of a space craft. Its belly is torn open and a strange dwelling bedecked in all manner of hanging totems and trinkets has been created within. The shadows of this place are utterly impenetrable, like a rip torn open in the world to an abyss beyond, and a heavy silence rests upon the place.

At the centre of the open-fronted dwelling on a rickety chair sits an immeasurably old woman of imperious bearing, her withered skin the colour of dirty ivory and her hair wild and matted. Under one hand lays a broken servo-skull and a narrow steel canister which she is caressing absently with her long black fingernails, while behind her chair something reddish-black and sinewy coils too deep in the shadows to make out.

"We brought them as you asked Ol’Lady." Ephraim calls out nervously.

The old woman nods slowly and pronounces in a voice that sounds like broken glass over a tombstone, "So you did, Ephraim Ryder, so you did, now go back to your kin."

"So," the old woman speaks "That blind fool Haarlock finally found himself some more fools to walk in his path, eh? Well congratulations, you made it through the corridors of time alive, and ahead oh’him coming back, the choice is yours now."
