Could work if he joins the PDF on a planet where they know they're sub par, and works his way into a position where he can give tacticool advice. In the IG he's likely going to need to get shot at first, and work his way up unless he's enlisted somewhere where there's a tactics test for potential officers. But in most places, if he follows orders (mostly) and keeps doing well because he has tactical genius, then he could work his way up.

But guy, don't forget that what makes sense when you're fighting humans don't necessarily work against fungus-warriors who are born knowing how to maintain their crude weaponry, and eight-foot supermen who spit acid and have armour so tough that anti-vehicle rounds are required to negate it.

Journal Entry: September 24, 40,000(?)
End up in the middle of battle between Imperial Guards and Tau for a Forge World. Hit the ground and crawl towards the Imperial trenches. Try to explain what is going on, but fail due to not knowing Low Gothic, and them not knowing English.

Get taken to Commissar. Babble more in English. Get one or two words across. Not blammed for some reason. Given lasgun and helmet and dragged to the front/

Journal Entry: September 30(?) 40,000(?)
Spent next few days shooting at Tau and ducking. Commissar still hasn't shot me. Still haven't gotten Flak Armor. Learned a few words of High Gothic. Taught a few words of English.
Managed to explain that I am from 21st century America.
Not sure if I am believed, but the local Adeptus Mechanicus think it is possible. Probably what has kept me from getting shot by the Commissar. Have managed to aquire lighter Lascarbine.

Journal Entry: October(?) 40,000(?)
Have managed to learn enough Gothic to hold a small conversation and get across important information. Got ahold of some flak armor and corporals stripes when a Tau sniper took out the squad's corporal. Have been given field promotion for not dying. Given up on seeing home.

Journal Entry: Mid-October(?) 40,000(?)
Ran across the remains of a scout squad while on patrol today. Scavanged a few supplies from them. Found a working Camo Cloak. Managed to pick up a bayonet and gasmask, too. Sgt. Karls found their Vox-Box. A little beaten around the edges but still in working order. They even had an Uplifting Primer that wasn't too bloodsoaked to read.

Journal Entry: Beginning of November(?) 40,000(?)
Been here for a month now I'd guess. I can hold a decent conversation now. Amazing what you'll learn when you need to. After finding that scout squad, our's has been assigned to replace them on long-patrol. We're not scouts, but this is the Imperial Guard. Make do with what you've got and send in more men if it's a problem. It's not too bad on patrol all things considered. I've got the cloak, so I get point often, though.

Journal Entry: November (?) 40,000(?)
Had a run in with a Tau scout today while on point. Turned around a corner and there he was. He was slow on the draw. I got two shots off before pulling my bayonet out. He managed to fire once, but it went wild. I don't think he'd ever been face to face with an enemy before. Needless to say, since I'm still here, he's not. I stabbed him in the gut, inbetween a couple of ribs where there was no armor plate... Tau really do bleed blue.

I'd eather move to an imperial world, death world or hive world... i like hive worlds... all the bad things fall down, and all the good ones raise up. I guess i'd start my own newspaper or vox show.

I may discuss facts that some call heresy, such as the rise of insanity in the eccleasiarchy. But i belive in the emperors light and avoid chaos like the plague. Allthough most likly even pronouncing the name attracts evil spirits. I guess i'd encourage stoicism or faith as the emotions which cannot be turned against us by chaos.

I guess i might try to design autoguns aswell, i may be able to make a good one with their knowledge. I'd also be able to make better armour and tanks for that matter. I'd also focus on domestic appliances. So i guess this means i'd join a good weapons guild.

I'm keeping this audio log, to keep me sane in this world I've ended up in. Though I have no idea how I was on Earth at one point and now... here. I have no idea what the date or time is.

I ended up with some sort of army that doesn't speak english, they refer to me as "chevek". From the way they say it, it possibly means outsider and or some sort of insult.

These soldiers look like nothing like the soldiers back home ( United States of America). They are extremely careful about maintaining and even protecting their weapons. In fact I think ( key word here is think), that these weapons are passed down from father to son, judgeing by this very long piece of paper with a list of names (?) I think. Another observation I noticed is that some have put axes on their rifles. Fucking hardcore shit right there. On and more thing, this world I'm on is fucking cold but these guys seem to be in their element.

Jesus fucking Christ, I'm scared, I pissing myself, literally pissing myself. I was being interrogated by what I think was a officer in a tent ( we didn't get very far as he doesn't speak English and I don't speak whatever the hell he did), when we suddenly heard this yelling, screaming and gunfire outside.

When we emerged, I saw... I saw these things strange tall, thin warriors wearing dark segmented plates, held in place by barbs ( I think?) and they were making utter mincemeat of the men. They fought with a fuck load of valour but the tall thin warriors just moved through them as if they were paper. I think they were cackling with laughter but I couldn't here properly, I was running at this point.

And now I'm, hiding in my urine stained paints behind a tank clutching one what I hope to be a pistol of a now dead soldier.

I'm gonna try and look up, to see if its safe.

... the fuck are they doing over there? Are they loading the dead into some transport... no they arent dead, their twitching and writing in agony. I can see it on their faces and- WAIT- fuck, gotta keep my voice down-, one isn't wearing a helmet... is that a god damned elf?

I think the safest place you could end up in, in this scenario is an uninhabited Eldar Maiden World. They're described as veritable gardens of Eden and as long as the Imperium doesn't stumble across it and tries to colonise the place the Craftworld Eldar won't have much reason to mount an "expell all humans" campaign. After all, a lone human with no ties to the Imperium is unlikely to to have any significant impact on the planet, if they even notice you're there at all.

I think it may be my birthday. I haven't really kept an exact count of how long I've been here, but it's been at least a month now. Out on patrol again. The Tau have been stepping up their attacks lately. Why they want a forgeworld so bad, I don't know. I don't care. I just do what I have to. Those reinforcements I mentioned finally arrived. Not sure where they're from, but glad to see them anyways. If this weren't a Forgeworld, chances are they wouldn't have been sent to reinforce it, from what I hear.

Journal Entry: Mid-November(?) 40,000(?)
Lost two members of our squad today. They got hit during a firefight with Tau soldiers. I got lucky and found some cover behind a wall. Took down at least one Tau. A Leman Russ showed up and took out the rest of them. Nasty thing that tank. It opened up and there was nothing but greasy blue smears left. Nothing exciting happened after that. We went back to base, picked up some more rations and equipment. I recieved a couple of frag grnades and a pair of snare mines. Also picked up a 9-70 entrenching tool, and some medical supplies.

Saw something odd on patrol today. There was a small group of humans wearing Tau equipment moving along one of the main streets. Sgt. Karls told me about them some. Traitors to the Imperium who now work for the Tau. He relayed their position over the Vox. Orders were to set up an ambush towards the plaza at the end of the street. I'd never killed another human before... We dug in at some burnt out buildings to the either side of the street. Sgt. Karls with three of the remaining guardsmen and myself along with two others on the far side. I planted my snare mines angled down the street on both sides. We waited until they were right in the middle of our sights and opened up. Between us and the mines, we shredded them to pieces. I don't remember if I hesitated or not. I just remember that it was odd seeing red blood at the end of my gunsights.

Journal Entry: Early December(?) 40,000(?)
Sometimes, I'm glad we got sent on scout duty. Sure, it's dangerous but I don't have the Commisar breathing down my neck all the time, like the men in the lines. And, sometimes, it's moments like last night that make it worth it.
We'd hunkered down up in a fairly stable building, to rest for a couple of hours. I'm on first watch, and it's almost unbelievable, but one of those floating troop carriers of theirs pulled right next to the building. I'm looking down from a second story window at them wondering if they're going to start shooting. Seemed they hadn't noticed us, and while they were disembarking, I alerted the rest of the squad. It's when two of them started arguing and pointing around that I started to think something was off. Then one of them pulled out a display and started pointing at it too. I realized what was going on. They were lost. These blue aliens, with their hover craft and high tech gear, were lost. I had to stifle some laughter right then.
More importantly, they'd left the hatch open to their transport. I asked for a couple of frag grenades, and when I got them, I took aim at that hatch and quietly tossed them in. They didn't know what hit them. The thing slammed into the ground, the hatch was billowing smoke, and we finished off the ones still left standing.

I was somewhere down on Nolita when it happened. SHE, happened, I should say. I was tired enough from preventing another Bloodtide incident, so when the servant told me "The Most Regal Inquisitor Helgha Tama of the Ordo Chronos" managed to talk her way onboard, I nearly killed him.

Looking back, I probably should've.

Tama, in her usual round-about manner, expressed to me her great love and passion for me. After I threatened to convince some Sisters that she'd been tainted by all that war-devilry, Hel finally opened up properly.

She told me (again, in her round-about manner) that there was a prisoner on her shuttle (still docked to the Recurring Judgement), who she had found on an assignment about two hundred centuries back. The prisoner had somehow managed to join a regiment of Guardsmen fighting Tau, and was apparently quite creative.

He also spoke no Gothic when he was found, and claimed to be from the 21st Century.

>> No.16416846

>>16416739
[entry continued on new audio file]

Hel says she doesn't know how much time passed between the prisoner's "arrival" and her finding him. She does know that he has an intimate knowledge of how the Imperium works, it's history and enemies, and much other lore, both common and arcane. Which is the exact reason she can't keep him. Things within the Ordo Chronos have been particularly hostile towards anything that doesn't involve shooting out-of-time artifacts. And I'm fairly sure a person counts as far more than an artifact. So she figured (in her infinite wisdom) that the poor man would be better off on the Recurring Judgement, with a "nice, reasonable xeno-hunter". I almost slapped her face, but I settled for my own. I had the prisoner transfered to my own ship, and Tama and I headed to her personal quarters to discuss more personal matters.

(next post is concentrating more on the prisoner, after I will stop if asked to, and keep going if moar is desired)

Finally got back from Tama's ship. Had a quick shower, supervised warp-entry, and then I got to the holding cells. The Prisoner looks far better than I had hoped. He had something to eat before I arrived, and was talking to the guard when I arrived. I dismissed her and entered the cell. What followed was the strangest conversation of my life.

Tama was right. He knows far more about the Imperium than he should. His knowledge base goes back to the Horus Heresy, and extends to about standard seven years from now. He told me that tyranid incursions will increase greatly for the rest of the millennium, and reaching fever pitch with "Hive Fleet Leviathan" attacking Gryphone IV. Also of note was his knowledge of Tau activity. He told me that the Tau cannot be trusted in the Zeist sector, particularly in 999.

Most disturbing, however, was the information he gave me on the Thirteenth Black Crusade. In seven years, the Despoiler will try to take Cadia. According to the Prisoner, we have to allow him to take the orbital at all costs and instead hold the mainlands, for underneath Cadian ground lies a great Warp Artifact that will give him power unlike any other. I sent all of the information to the proper authorities, trusted men who wouldn't question it's source.

But the information about Cadia just seems... wrong. Allowing Abbadon to take the orbitals seems like a bad idea, no matter how great the artifact is.

After my last patrol, the squad was called back to HeadQuarters, immediately. Upon arrival we were told to wait outside of the main Command building. Eventually, after sitting for what felt like ages, a Commissar came out and dismmissed the rest of the squad. I was told to bring my gear and follow him inside. What followed was probably the second strangest moment of my life. I was presented to "The Most Regal Inquisitor Helgha Tama of the Ordo Chronos". The Commissar who escorted me in was dismissed, at which point I was starting to get nervous. I knew that Ordo Chronos meant something to with time, and I could guess why she was here. I was going to be interrogated and probably executed, I thought. And I'd left my lascarbine at the door, not that it would've done me much good.

Nothing of note today, at least in reference to the cleansing of Contact activity in the Sector. In reference to the Prisoner, two things happened.

First, I finally had Wendi up here to interrogate the Prisoner. And she wasn't able to. She isn't the best psyker in the galaxy, but I trust this girl to do her job. When she told me that she just couldn't get through to him, I got worried. Wendi wasn't foaming at the mouth, so I couldn't believe the prisoner was a blank. She just told me that there was an "aura of boring" about him, and that her mind just couldn't bear to pierce him. I spoke to an old friend with the Astra Telepathica, and it seems to be consistent with the Prisoner's claim of being from the M3. People weren't psychically active back then, so it would take some time to be able to crack this kava nut.

Second, I gave that information some thought. I contacted a few other experts on the xeno threats described, and they checked out. But giving Abbadon the orbitals? It would take one warp of an artifact to be worth that much... and even so, I doubt that the Black Warmaster would be so easily fooled. I gave bridge the order to head to Cadia. A few people were thrown off, but I'm more than sure Vail and Korvie can hold of Contact for the rest of the campaign...

Other than that, everything is going well. The Prisoner and his guard are getting rather close. Ah well. He should at least have some measure of comfort in this "grimdark universe" as he called it...

Journal Entry Part Two: December(?) 40,000(?)
What happened next... it just kept getting stranger. I was told that I would be coming with her to a vessel under her command, and that I would tell her everything I knew. With that out of the way, I was almost dragged out of there. I did manage to grab ahold of my lascarbine on the way out, but her guards confiscated that. I was taken aboard the Inquisitor's personal landing craft and up to the vessel waiting in orbit. So far, I had not been treated harshly, or threatened, but I was still worried. No weapons, no squad mates to help, and no bearings. After being brought up to the ship, I was escorted to a room and told to stay in it until summoned. To make sure of this, they had a guard posted outside of my door. What was probably a few hours later, The Inquisitor stepped in. She wanted to know how I was found, what I knew. All of it.
And I told her. I told her how I'd been relaxing one day, fell asleep at one point and woke up in the middle of a battle. I knew a little about the 40,000 millenium, enough to recogonize the two sides, and a little more. And then, then everything faded away. I could still hear my voice, I could hear myself talking, but I couldn't understand the words. This went on for some time, and then it stopped. But the expression on her face... that worried me much more than anything up until then. It was a mixture of grim determination and a slight hint of fear.
I was left alone after that. I'm glad I still write in English. I'm not sure if I want them to know that wasn't myself doing the talking all the way. Now, I think I'm going to rest. It's been a long day, and longer still since I slept in a bed.

Helgha contacted me a while ago. It was a secure line. She wouldn't explain why she was only telling me this now, but said it had somethng to do with warp currents being favorable...

When she first interrogated the prisoner, she was wearing that Gell-Rosarius I gave when she joined the Ordo. I'm not sure if I've mentioned it on this particular archive, but it''s a small device, blessed by the Ecclesiarchy and capable of producing a small anti-possession field. Sadly (and here's where it get's worrisome) it has a habit of failing when going into the warp. Sometime during the interrogation, they made a warp-jump. And the prisoner... changed...

What before was just lose details (Tau here, there's more Tyranids than you think, etc.) became specific outlines of events in the near future. His eyes somehow turned a brighter shade of black (whatever that means) and his hair looked staticy, despite being in the only rubber-lined room onboard. Not only that, but apparently, the entirety of the intelligence of Cadia came at this time.

I asked to meet with her in person, but Hel sid it was impossible. She was transmitting from transfinite warp-probe and was almost a full millennium behind us. Whatever was happening, she was worried sick.

Making contact with any space marine chapter would be the best thing to do, even ridged chapters like the templars. That is if you actually have any plans of actually trying to change something in the 40k world. Why because even though "all marines are angry marines" out of all the factions in 40k they would be most likely to understand someone who's come from the 21st century (assuming you are on their side).

I could also see becoming a pretty powerful tech adept, possibly racing up the ranks assuming since I have a lot of areospace engineering and computing background from the 21st century. That however could quickly turn ugly if someone in the Admech got extremely jelly at your success and decided to ex you out and steal your newly created tech.

Dated: Check 6 702 993.M41

As I said... Despite the best attemps to do their duty, the Navy stationed around the area where we dropped out of the Warp wasn't able to shoot us down. Everything worked out for the best, though. As soon as the last recording cut out, three things happened:
1) Our Gellar field pulsed. I'd only heard old sailors tell stories about that happening, but I guess it really does occur. The field pulsed while in realspace, causing some kind of overlap with the warp, and... well the point is that every daemon reacted like it had been doused with blessed promethium, and anything that survived that got cut down by Miles and his melta.

2) I didn't find out about this until later, but our techpriest recovered control and contacted the world we were about to crash into. The local government declared an emergency and cleared an area big enough to crash-land into with (relative) safety. Not only that, but the Imperial Court space marine chapter was in the system, and would meet us on-world.

3) I found the prisoner.
He was cowering in a corner on the bridge. Our eyes met. I don't know what happened, but I could just... tell. He didn't mean for this to happen, but he knew it was his fault, somehow. I lunged over to him and shot him, but not without a brief apology. The poor man died afraid and alone, in a universe where no one knew or loved him.

That was Helgha. I can hardly believe it. I almost kissed her when I saw her. I almost killed her, too. She told things to important before I could do anything, though.

I was right, in a way. The prisoner wasn't intentionally responsible for what happened to the Recurring Judgement. It was the sheer volume of knowledge he possessed about daemons, particularity Tzeentch, that caused it. So full was his mind that even our Gellar field couldn't stop the daemons from using him as a portal. That wasn't the worst part, though.

It's happening everywhere.

Journal Entry: December (?) 40,000(?)
I was woke up, something felt... strange. Like my mind was all fuzzy at the edges. Things looked slightly off, and I kept hearing, strange, but faint noises. I tried to shake it off, but I just couldn't. I was in the holding cells of a different ship this time. I didn't even remember how I ended up there. At least my guard was nice. Kind of pretty too. I'd seen a couple of female guardsmen back when I was fighting the Tau, but my squad was all men.
We were in the middle of talking when an Inquisitor showed up. He wanted to know what I had told Inquisitor Tama. I obliged him, telling him what I knew and again, I started to fade. But this time was worse. Unintelligble muttering filled the void, a voice that wasn't my own... and nothing I did could get rid of it. And then I was back. I had stopped speaking. And he had a perplexed look on his face. But he left me alone.

Final Journal Entry:
I spent the next few days getting to know my guard better. Really, she was quite pretty, and very charming. I tried to sleep, but that was getting harder, and harder for me. Strange, grotesque dreams, whispered voices, things I couldn't understand or comprehend haunted me when I rested. I can't tell anyone though. I don't know what they would do to me, but I likely wouldn't survive it... I wish I could tell someone... Oh god above, I wish I could tell someone. Do something. Just get them out of my head...
And then they stopped. It was quiet... so very quiet for once. Before the screaming started. Inhuman shrieks and gibbering, strange eldritch voices, mixing with the human yelling of the guards and crew. I was helpless. No weapons, no armor, I didn't know what was going on, but it terrified me. The door opened, and this thing... this horrific, twisted thing, it looked at me, and then laughed. Why it didn't kill me... I don't know. The screaming started to fade, the sounds of battle echoed down the halls, but none where I was. Everyone nearby was dead. It was almost opressive, this quiet. The ship was wracked with a shuddering jolt, again and again for several minutes...a sudden painful shriek as if a hundred voices, and then it was quiet. But different. Less deadening. I tried to find if anyone around was still alive... but no, everyone here was dead. I was lost in the warren of hallways and rooms. Eventually, I ended up in what looked like a bridge of some sort. Or at least, it had windows to look out, and quite a few bodies slumped over machinery. I sat in a corner... even my months of fighting the Tau hadn't prepared me for such horror.

That brings the grand total to 26. 26 men and women claiming to be from M3. 26 cases of extreme corruption stemming from their intimate knowledge of Chaos. Frak...

We found another one. I usually hate cutting these things short, but the Astartes holding him aren't patient men.

Number 27 wasn't like the other ones. The few travelers we've met so far are either terrified of their current situation, or they're almost... ecstatic. This one was calm. He apparently walked straight towards the nearest Astrates monastery and explained his situation in broken Gothic (which he learned while hitch-hiking across the world he appeared on). He also asked for Ordo Chronos by name. That's something new. They usually know the major factions from the Inquisition, but this one seems to have a far deeper understanding than the others. When Hel asked about this, he mumbled something about "playing daemonhunters". Must be a reference to that game they're always talking about...

Alright... we're on board the hulk. Throne, I can't believe we hit that.

Uh, right. I probably should explain.

Once I get back to the ship, I'll synch this up to the rest of the archive. For now, I'm using the recording platform embedded in this suit. We hit a space hulk while we were exiting the system where we picked up 27. Space hulk wasn't registered, and no one claimed salvage. No obvious signs of tainting by xenos or chaos...

Celty, you done with that read-out yet?

Perfect. Alright, last known destination was Tau space. It's definitely Imperial, so it could be a trading vessel for all I know. Read-out says most of the hull is breached. There's a few rooms deeper into the ship that still have atmo, though... Hel? We're going in.

[brief arguing]

Hmph. Doesn't bat an eye when I forget her birthday and gives me warp for not bringing a bolter onto an abandoned hulk. I sure know how to pick 'em... Celty, if there are any biosigns, you let- There are? Perfect... Let's pray it isn't orks or 'stealers...

Emperor... We found another one. This is the only we've ever found two at a time. Hel's freaking out. Everyone is, on some level. We've seen what these bastards can do on their own... Two of them...

28, as I'm calling him, is in the med bay, recovering. Short-wave teleport doesn't treat people too kindly the first time around, and this was an exaggeration of that rule. Not sure what we're going to do about him...

As if that weren't enough, 27 and I finally got to talk. He told me that he was looking for an "Inquisitor Cheveska". She's with Hereticus, and is stationed somewhere near Cadia. He tells me that she'll be playing a big part in the next Black Crusade, and wants to help out anyway he can. Throne... at least this one's co-operative. I remember 8. Bitch joined the Tau at the first chance she got. If it weren't for that Vindicare Hel keeps on hand, the Tau would've had a complete play-by-play for their next crusade. That was right around the time these things stopped surprising me.

I keep trying to press 27 for more information on the 13th Black Crusade, but he's not giving me anything clear. He did, however, say one thing that worried me...

Chaos will take Cadian ground. We have to allow him into the orbital and hold the surface at all cost.

I've only heard that once before, and I don't trust 27 anymore than I did 1.

Headed to Cadia, finally. Hel and I had a LOOOOOOONG talk after my last entry... She decided that she doesn't trust 27 either, but if he's going to pull something like 8 did, we might as well let him show his hand. Still... I can't for the life of me figure out what could possibly come out of something like this. Maybe the battle for Cadia really will play out like he said... With the Imperium taking the orbitals and the heretics blasting their way out with... whatever they hope to find.

28 woke up last week. I'm holding off on interrogating him, but from what he's told me, he hasn't seen the best time. He found a rogue trader headed to Tau space and bought his way onboard. There was a mutiny halfway through the voyage, and 28 was on the losing side. When the winners left, they left 28 to die in the hold where we found him. Damn... That's rough.

OK, maybe I should just begin at the beginning. I went to sleep as normal, and when I woke up, I was lying on a corpse. Yeah, that's... Uh... Quite disgusting. I of course panicked. Rolled over, jumped up. Looked around. Saw what looked like a WWI battlefield. Then I realised what that corpse was. It was an Imperial Guardsman...

Yeah. Shit. Looked around a bit more. Found more bodies. Most human, and Imperials. Some Tau. Found this thing. Looked like a recorder. And whattayaknow, it was. Now I'm stumbling around the killing fields, looking for some more food. Found some MRE-like things. Tasted like shit, and if I recall my Warhammer lore correctly, it might've been corpse starch.

Headed to Cadia. We just received an emergency broadcast from Cheveska. Headed to rendezvous with her as I'm recording this. Not only that, but it's just me, with 27 and 28 again. Hel got called back by another Inquisitor. Something about a consult regarding an older case. 19, I think it was.

Heh, is it sad that I almost miss her?

At any rate, here's the transcript from my interrogation of 28.

//TRANSCRIPT START//

Myself: Well, kid. Where you from?

28:... hah. Aren't Inquisitors supposed to be more "by the book than that"?

Myself: We're supposed to be... But look at it this way. We found you near-death in a space hulk, somehow ended up here from the 3 millennium. You're in a grim and dark universe with almost no friends to speak off, and we only picked you up because you might be useful in corroborating some intel I have. Would harassing you really be any better than just showing you a little kindness?

28:.... True.

Myself: Now, what can you tell me about the 13th Black Crusade?

28: The 13th? Let's see... I think Chaos takes Cadia?

Finally on Cadia. Met with Cheveska. Things are getting worse...

There's a Chaotic fleet amassing deep in the Eye. Right now, it looks like just Black Legion, but that could change any minute. The population is gearing up for a fight, and given 27's intel, I expect the Mechanicum to begin excavations at any moment. They've already uncovered a few xeno ruins deep under the ground. Looks like 27 checked out after all... The strategy at this point seems to be to reinforce everything, and prepare for a siege. A lot of local worlds are sending food. I saw a few juvies try and cook an apple the other day. They'd never seen one...

I released 27 into Cheveska's custody. He's adjusting well, and he might end up serving in the IG here, or at least running security somewhere.

Still haven't heard from Hel. Our fight the weeks before hand wasn't anything too big, but I'm still worried. I'll give her a shout later...

Haven't kept these logs up to date. Been meeting with this general or that brother-captian. There is a reason I wrote something today, though. Well, two really.

Reason number one: Helgha finally got back to me. Here's the audio file she sent me:

//TRANSCRIPT START//

Helgha: HEY BABE. ON MY WAY TO CADIA. BIG SURPRISE, DON'T TELL ANYONE. SEE YOU IN A FEW

//END//

Helgha is a lot of things. One thing she isn't, though, is a woman who calls people "babe". The closest thing she has to a pet name is "grox-frakker". Something is wrong here.

Reason number two: I saw 28 again. I bought one of those apples for the occasion. I hadn't seen him since we arrived at Cadia, and I figured I might as well keep treating him well.

//TRANSCRIPT SECTION START//

Myself: [tosses apple] These aren't cheap, y'know. I hope they're a delicacy back in M3.

28: Haha... They're okay. [bites apples] Mmmmm... Weird... Apples on Cadia.

Assuming they both use decent tactics it's probably a fair fight. Marines have vastly superior tanks but Guard have much larger numbers and are also physically really buff. Their weapons and armour are about the same quality.

Copy pasta from another place concerning IG weapons:

"A lasgun is probably about as strong as a .308 rifle maybe a .338 lapua magnum. It is described as having the power to tear a man's limbs off not take vehicles, hell autoguns (which are essentially the same as modern battlerifles) can compete with a lasgun. For a comparison a .50cal rifle will blow a man to pieces and it has the armor-piercing capability of going completely through an armored car. I once saw a video where a soldier shot an insurgent with a .50 and blew the man to pieces, the man's torso flew sky high in the air and it took a good 5 seconds to come back down that happened in RL. I don't see lasguns doing that so IG small arms aren't going to bring down vehicles, but they will still be very effective against infantry. Guardsmen armor can probably survive Ak-47 rounds without much trouble but 7.62x51mm rounds will probably pierce right through it."

Fanfiction.

It's the reason that the apples worried 28, and it's where the story of Cadia's fall was told.

At some point in the distant past, a story was written which was set in our universe. This doesn't surprise me, since I know that the current state of the galaxy is only a game to the men from the past, and it would make sense for there to be stories about that game. But in one of these stories (according to 28, one of the better ones), Cadia is attacked through trading vessels carrying apples.

That's why 27 and 1 were so adamant that our forces should concentrate on the ground. When the vessels make landfall, they'll activate the bombs onboard and destroy this world forever. Abbadon will have his base- and whatever Emperor forsaken device is buried here. With those two things, Terra is doomed.

Even as I write this, I am headed down to the starport. I don't know if the bombs will be coming down from there, but I do know that I can use the orbital traffic controller to stall all merchant vessels and shoot them down.

By the Emperor... I hope I can make it in time.

Yes. Archaeotech from the Dark Age of Technology, which going by Necromunda is fucking ring-sized plasma weaponry or personal field generators or something.

40k DOES HAVE a higher baseline technology than modern day Earth. It just does. Space travel is possible. Bionic limbs, brains and the regrowth of such things is possible. Cloning is possible. Tearing apart the fucking fundamental forces of reality with a bomb is possible. Monomolecular-edged shuriken aren't even that threatening.

.308s will not sever limbs with any regularity, any deer hunter could tell you that. Blowing off body parts is more the perview of 50 caliber and 20mm rifles. 50 Caliber machine guns will blow the shit out of stuff because they hit them with more than one bullet, they guy you saw explode most likely took several hits.

The tanks statistics are from the Imperial Armor Books, which are know to be all over the place when it comes to fluff. For example what is "conventional steel" in 40k? Is it plasteel? That's the most common material they use for building.

Lasguns are said to sever limbs regularly so somewhere between a .50 and 30mm in power.

All the bayonets and chainswords have monomolecular or monoatomic edges.

The older fluff had circuitry being ubiquitous to the point that rifle butts where full of inbuilt computation systems. In fact every gun may have a very stupid machine spirit in it acting as rudimentary AI that makes the guns work better.

These marines had a different philosophy, fighting from one position, then withdrawing to the next, never staying long enough to draw the Orks full ire.
I sent a man with a vox-caster to the "Marine" commander to facilitate communication. The 42nd would draw in the Orks, laying into them with holy lasfire and bayonet. Meanwhile the marines in their strange vehicles would circle around the orks and attack them from behind.
Within hours our combined forces had held the city, and were mobilizing for a counter-attack. To my mild surprise the newcomers seemed eager. Their commander said they had spent the last 8 years fighting an insurgency, waging war against shadows. Open battle would be a welcome relief.

Orks held the only facility on this continent with a Relay capable of making contact with our fleet. If we were going to get off this rock, we would need to take it back. The Marines agreed, after I gave my word that I would attempt to take them home.
I mobilized our chimeras, loading up the first and second companies. The Third, Fourth and Fifth would footslog behind.
Our newcomers were fully mechanized, aboard vehicles called "Strykers". They had four tanks of a pattern I had never seen before, but the marines called them "Abrahams". The techpriest were delighted, poring over the mighty beasts until their crews shooed them away.

In the course of an hour, the mixed task force was underway. The Marines made sport of racing us there, their Strykers bouncing over the wastes, firing at pockets of orks without slowing. I insisted on the doctrine I had been taught, dismounting troopers to fight the foul xenos as the Emperor demanded.

Their tanks were a sight indeed. Charging up the center of the formation, one tank- the name "Foreign Relations' written in bold letters on the side- scored 3 kills against Ork tanks in under a minute. With our multilasers joining in we cleared the first line of resistance without much trouble.

I have a similar story related to this thread. Pretty much my idea was to create a character who was a former Tech Adept that was highly intelligent and successful and had intricate knowledge. However he was betrayed and horribly burned in a assassination attempt by the Admech so they could steal his research.
Surviving he became rogue and increasingly obsessed with "truth" and the "gods" of the world before. Swearing revenge and to bring to light the true decrepit state of the Imperium.

Anyway he discovers on a uncharted imperial world a ancient flight capable titan that kept in stasis pre-dating even the dark age of technology.
The titan posses technology never before seen anywhere in the Imperium. Strange markings consisting of stars and and red and white stripes and the writing of a old antiquated dialect. The cockpit configuration was stranger, consisting of single occupant and a very unusual neural interface that seemed to work on far more intimate level. The internal systems continually refereed to a "Uusa Naviee".

Not only that he becomes completely insane after discovering an archive detailing and ancient yet immensely powerful civilization he transcribed as "Umerica" and all of there technology and secrets.

Our Chimeras dismounted at the facility's outer limits as Orks rained fire on us from the Adamantine wall protecting it. I drew my power sword and led my command squad directly at the gate. I directed a techpriest to begin the opening of the gate. He besought the gate's spirit and began the rites of opening.
The fighting drew more aliens, as was their wont. The rest of my Regiment was still slogging it toward the facility, an hour or more away. The techpriest was struck by a weapon I believe the orks call a "stikk-bomb" and exploded. One of his mechandrites struck my flag-bearer and took his head off. I grabbed the flag before it could touch the ground, but it was becoming clear that we were hopelessly outnumbered, without any clear way through the gate.
The Marines were informed of our situation through my Vox-man, and told us to pull away from the gate. A moment later, Foreign Relations. began to fire shell after shell into the gate, punching holes through it. The other three tanks raked the walls with stubber and cannon fire, clearing away the gunners.

With the gate weakened, I brought forward a melta-gunner to start cutting through. The marines circled the facility in their Strykers, looking for an alternative way in. I lost two melta-gunners in the process, but the gate was open. The Orks began to pour through, meeting their end at flamer and lasgun and steel.

In a rage I turned off the vox and severed the head of a Nob. We were making progress, the Orks numbers were no use to them in these confined spaces. We were losing men, but the xenos were paying dearly for each life they took.

"Acknowledged, Captain. The building you are looking for... well, it has a giant transmitter sticking out of it. Go there."
"Aha, aye aye Colonel." The vox was still active, but the Captain seemed to be addressing his men.
"MARINES, let's kill these alien sons o' bitches. You've all seen Independence Day, right? OORAH."

Whatever it was that 563 found, it's big.

Remember that the American version of the M1A1 is powered by a jet engine, and so is hella fast for a tank. Its unclassified top speed is 67.6 km/h, but it is an open secret that it is MUCH faster than that. And can send three rounds through the same window of a house within seven seconds at 800 meters while moving at that speed over variable terrain. The T-90 and FV4034 Challenger 2 are comparable for those of you more familiar with those.
Modern MBTs, are quite frankly, overpowered for 40k's WW1 and WW2 era tanks. This is probably due to GW making a setting based on cool and not effectiveness however.

I am Captain Arthur Franklin, a solider of the UNITED STATES MARINE CORP. I have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Up until yesterday, that meant doing patrols in Baghdad and checking for IEDs. Now, well, these enemies sure as hell are foreign.
The maintenance road was tight, our Strykers just barely fit into it. I took point with a squad of leathernecks backing me up. I figure if I was going to be sending my men into alien hell, I might as well open the door for them.

A couple of the beasts ran at us holding axes- honest to god AXES. It took damn near a full mag to bring one down, but bring em down we did. The gunshots were deafening in the tunnel, and the 50cal on the Stryker was like the thunder of zeus himself.

The Colonel's "Vox-Man" relayed our discovery to the Colonel, then turned on my own mic.
"MARINES, let's kill these alien sons o' bitches. You've all seen Independence Day, right? OORAH."

We pushed forward, clearing out the aliens as they came at us. I could see the light at the end of the tunnel- ha ha. As soon as we made it into the open, we fanned out and dropped behind covering, dropping hostiles in the open and calling out targets for the Strykers as they emerged.

One of the alien RPGS struck the third stryker. It must have hit the ammo, because the whole thing blew apart. There were still six in the tunnel behind, not to mention most of my men. If we couldn't get passed that wreck, we were all going to die.

Well it appears i was more successfull then i thought, they didn't just take me to some admechs, they took me to a Magos... as it turns out we could Communicate. English is very similar to high Gothic. Anyway, even with the ability to communicate it wasn't going very well as he didn't beleive a word i said... so i showed him my phone, i figured that if the value dark age tech so highly, pre dark age might be worth something... he was.. ecstatic to say the least.

anyway, after he had proof and a promise of knowledge he began co-operating, he has sent a message to inquisition requesting their presence, although the fact i asked for the inquisition scared them, seems that the fear of the ordos are quite real. However the inquisitors are probably the only people who could help me.

No, Baneblades are too slow. And their shape makes it too easy for a comparably weak AT weapon to take out any of the turrets. There's a reason that modern MBTs are shaped the way they are, its to hopefully deflect any shots that do hit them away. The Baneblade is flat everywhere (except for the armor in front of the treads), which means that anything that hits it will impart ALL of its energy into the structure. There's a reason our MBTs are shaped like they are. This is especially true on the bottom where the M1A1 has a slight V-shape where the Baneblade is flat; meaning that any mine that would have been deflected by the Abrams will be fully taken on by the Baneblade, coupled with its speed, means that the Baneblade is going to feel every shot fired at it.
Also, the Baneblade uses a very visible fueltank, internal combustion engine setup on the rear of the chasis. Making it look like that (A) it should be rear-heavy and thus easy to make preform a wheelie... or tumble over backwards when going upslope and (B) one shot to the rear from most anything except a BBgun (including getting the tanks/engine shorn off by said wheelie) will immobilize the Baneblade making it heavily armored stationary gun position. All of that makes the Baneblade a thing we tankers call a "deathtrap".
Looks cool though.

The Forty Second pushed through the open gate, taking advantage of the reduced orks. We burned them from their holes with flamers, cracked open their vehicles with meltas, tore them apart with our lasguns.
The Relay was in sight at the end of an avenue choked with rubble. Our techpriests got to work opening the gate, allowing our Chimeras and the Marines' tanks to enter the battle. Two Chimeras equipped with dozer blades went first, clearing the path for those behind.
"Colonel, colonel do you read me?" Franklin's voice came crackling over the com.
"Go ahead Captain."
"We're pinned at the maintenance road, we need support! We're gettin murdered out here!"
"Copy that, Captain. I'm sending some men your way. May the Emperor protect you."
"Err, yes, you too Colonel."

My reinforcements were making better time than I had imagined. The push to the relay had been thorough. Clear of Ork resistance, they were just now joining up. I sent the entire fifth company and four Chimeras east to relieve Franklin's marines.

The Teegian rifles cleared the buildings alongside the avenue as the armour pressed towards the Relay. I watched from atop my command Chimera as one of my outriding Sentinals was obliterated by a massive cannon. Thunder rolled in the distance, then again. No, it was too regular to be thunder.

A little story demonstrating what I'm talking about:
We got stuck in (pic related, not us though.) and tried to haul our Abrams out of the muck using another one first. The cables snapped. Then we radioed in a ARV- an M88 if you're intrested. They tried, nothing happened. One of the ARV guys yells "FUCK IT ALL" and sticks a small brick under our tank after scooping out a hole for it. He then runs away yelling "FIRE IN THE HOLE" while some wire looking thing is trailing behind him. Before I could ask what's going on, a loud boom knocks me on my ass and mud starts raining down on us. Motherfucker used a block of C4 to try and jar us loose. It didn't work, we were still stuck, and now our paint was chipped.
We eventually got out using FIVE blocks of C4 under our tank at once and with only superficial damage

My marines were getting chewed apart by the heavy slugs thrown by the enemy guns, and one of two Strykers that had made it into the open was wrecked, its crew sheltered against some rubble, firing weapons retrieved from fallen comrades.
"Captain Franklin, this is Captain Mattius of the 5th Company. I hear you have an ork problem?"
"Roger that, Mattius, those buildings are going to be the death of us."
"Right-o, Captain Franklin. ALL GUARDSMEN FOLLOW ME TO GLORY!"

From a minor road, Guyus; reinforcements arrived. They charged headlong at the building, bayonets fixed and firing from the hip.

"Christ you fucks, what are you doing?!" I shouted at them, but they ignored me. I ducked back behind cover as a hail of bullets chopped over my head
"A bayonet charge... a fucking bayonet charge... DOES THAT ONE HAVE A SWORD?"
The Guardsmen stormed into the buildings, gunfire and flames punching out windows. I marked their progress by the windows where Ork gunners ceased their barrage. They finally reached the top it seemed, and the buildings were silent.
The ground was littered with the dead and dying. I sent my corpsmen out to do what they could for them. One of those APCs- my men had started to call them laser trucks- pullled the wreckage of the Stryker out of the tunnel, freeing the men trapped inside.
I called my platoon leaders forward to take stock. Of the thirty men who made it into the open, 18 were dead. I had lost two of my Strykers, with a third heavily damaged. I didn't see getting reinforcements any time soon, and every life counted even under the best of circumstances.
Captain Mattius had survived the charge, and sauntered over to me, clearly proud of himself.
"The hell were you thinking, a charge against a fortified enemy?"
"Life is the Emperor's currency, Captain, spend it well."
I punched him in the face and knocked him to the ground before two of my men grabbed me. Mattius's men aimed their rifles.

I suppose I had seen bigger Gargants. I was later told this one qualified as a "super-stompa". Names didn't matter then. The guns on that xenos filth mattered. Multilasers fired, chipping away at the armor of the Ork beast. The main gun fired again, punching clean through a Chimera, showering the road with metal and human debris.
I picked up some vox-transmissions between the crews of the Marines:
"Hey, Paul, remember that part in Halo... when you fight the whatdoya call it... Scarab?"
"Yeah?"
"AIM FOR THE LEG, MOTHERFUCKAH"
The Marine tanks began to fire, aiming for one of the Gargant's legs. Shell after shell pounded into the Gargant, smashing apart gears and ripping through the superstructure. The Gargant took another step and pitched forward, smashing on the street. It blew apart, Orks spilling out from the interior. The tanks rolled forward with Foreign Relations spearheading. Gunners popped out of hatches on the top, training their heavy stubbers on the fleeing greenskins.

"Colonel the road should be clear, shall we advance?"

I didn't know what to say, I was stunned at the cavalier attitude of these newcomers.

"Excuse me, Colonel?"

I have found...something. Someone, to be precise though his status as a Man is yet to be confirmed. He is quite clearly out of his mind, speaking in some tongue that I could not recognize. I found him sitting in the middle of a field on my home, craning his head this way and that, as if unsure whether to move. I called to him, and this apparently surprised him enough to force him to his feet. He wore a very peculiar garb of white robe (stained slightly) with a red sash overlaid upon it, and his head were bald as though he were an old man. He extended his hand apparently in greeting as I drew nearer and spoke...something. His language is beyond me, yet there is something familiar about it, a syllable here, a rolling of the tongue or lips there, specific things which I could pluck out of the garbage as recognizable. He lacks fever and does not babble though he is quite confused as to where he is, and as my conscience dictates I have decided to keep him at my residence to ascertain his danger more clearly.

Mattius stood back up, drawing his sword.
"You have made a grave mistake, newcomer."
"Put that toy away and open your fucking eyes." My hand fell toward my sidearm, but I resisted the urge to pull it out.
"My eyes are open to the glory of the Emperor, Captain, what else do I need to see?"
"THAT, YOU DENSE CUNT, THAT!" I pointed at the heap of his dead and the triage station my corpsmen had set up. "You had the advantage of surprise and armour, and you choose to run at them with bayonets? What is wrong with you?!"
"My tactics are based on the Lord Militant of the Imperial Guard, questioning them is heresy!"
"Heresy? Are you living in the dark ages? Soldiers fight wars, you can't do that if you get shot up listening to this bronze age bullshit!"
The vox crackled ""This is Colonel Guyus to all Teegian Rifles. We have made contact with a Gargant. Repeat- GARGANT"
Mattius stood up straighter.
"We will resolve this later, Captain, now we must return to the battle at hand. Men, assemble, we go to battle in the name of our Father on Terra."

I shook my head and stood back, turning to my marines.
"Alright men, mount up, let's follow these lunatics."

The Relay was protected by a second gate. The techpriests urged me to stop and open it properly, but my fullspeed Chimera opened it just fine. The Orks were reduced, but there was still several hundred holed up in the Relay complex. We poured from our Chimeras, meeting the Orks in glorious combat.
Power sword in hand, I hacked a path toward the entrance. My men followed behind, many falling to Ork sluggas and choppas, more making it to the door.
"Colonel, this is Captain Franklin, we're heading to the Relay, ETA 10 minutes."
"Copy that Captain, Emperor Protects!"
"Sure."
The entirety of my Regiment pressed into the Relay, matching the Orks in number. The control room had to be above me, somewhere. A mob of Nobs threw themselves at us, chopping apart my men like they weren't even there. I ended up calling up my meltagunners to slice through the Nobs, and even then it took terrifyingly long.
"OI, WAT ARE YOU GITZ DOIN IN ME TALKIN HOUSE? GIT OUT YOU HUMIE RUNTS!"
Stomping down the steps, ten feet tell and covered in armour bolted to his foul flesh, came the Warboss. He fired the cannon wired into his hand, blowing apart the men next to me and showering their blood on me. Wiping gore from my eyes, I raised my sword and charged him:

I don't know where to start. The days has all run together after I was taken away from the temple, and I know by whom I was taken. Not many organisations in the Empire of Man uses the =I= for a symbol... Since then, for...I don't really know how long, been subject to interogations. Not...severe interogation...but firm. Thankfully my gothic has improved so I managed to ask for some paper and pen so I could keep one fragment of sanity here for me. Other than the Inquisitor talking to me about where I came from...which was a "fun" part. Appears that I am not the only one in my predicament after the inquisitor made a slip of his tongue. Could be usefull to know. Also, the AdMech running the ship has loved talking to me, very intrigued by both my native language, but more interrested in english. However, after each time me and the AdMech talks...I feel dirty, all his stuff in him, is he even human?
