[ERROR] No.16980344 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

So, I was playing a Deathwatch game.

After a while my character, a Librarian, received information that Alpha Legion had put an Infiltrator in my squad.

I was told to investigate, and 'take appropriate actions'.

After I murdered my entire squad without even bothering to investigate, I went back to the watch fortress. I conferred with several other members needed for my plan: a Techmarine, another Librarian, a Chaplain, and an Apothecary (Who, by the way, are the characters the rest of the group re-rolled). I told them that i had killed my Squad, because Alpha Legion. I then explained that if Alpha Legion was infiltrating at the squad level, then the rest of the watch fortress was clearly compromised to a massive extent. We could not even be sure we were not corrupted.

So we put forth the plan.

The Apothecary poisoned all of the other Space Marines through medical checks, with venom potent enough to render them unconscious if not kill them outright.

The Techpriest rigged the stations void-shields and reactor to a dataslate.

The Chaplain talked people into joining our faction quietly, myself and the other librarian eliminating anyone who acted like they might even think about not joining us.

Within three days, everyone not compliant was dead.

We then used captured Xenos tech to damage the fortress as though it was attacked, and sent recall orders to the handful of teams not present. Once they and their Inquisitor handlers arrived, they found the station seemingly ruined. As soon as they got half way in, we turned on the void shields, shot down their ships, and overloaded the reactor.

There were no survivors.

My question to you /tg/ is this: did I over-react just a little bit with the potential Alpha Legion threat? Cause my GM's really pissed, but I really can't see how I could have resolved that with less than a full purge.

>> No.16980355

Killing loyalists - his own battle brothers no less - indiscriminately because there may be Alpha Legion infiltrators seems like the kind of thing that would make you fall to Tzeentch.

Yeah, totally. That is why there is a Corruption mechanic that can cause you to become a Chaos tainted asshole without ever having contact with any Chaos God in any way, shape or form ever.

This is also why the Imperial Creed is so strict, instead of simply telling people "don't make deals with the Chaos Gods and you'll be fine because Chaos is only dangerous if you actually bow down to it willingly".

It is also why the Eldar have to rely on the Path of the Eldar in order to keep Slaanesh at bay. I mean, it's not like any kind of excessive behaviour on their part risks their very souls being consumed or anything. Or like their excessive behaviour spawned Slaanesh in the first place.

You've stated the blatantly obvious, and then followed it up with a personal attack. Alright, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.

I know they're fictional, as is everything else in the setting. very little if any of it is real. Putting them in the context of the setting they exist in, and giving the exact same weight and value to their organization that you would give anything else in this fictional setting is what my statements were based off of.

I'm honestly sorry if anything in my post made you think otherwise, as that was not my intent.

>How "bad" they are comes down to the individual GM, and judging by said GM's response OP has clearly overreacted.

Not denying that, and said as much in my post. Let's break this statement down further:

>judging by said GM's response

Which was after the fact. OP can see now that he over-reacted. Hindsight's a bitch.

>OP has clearly overreacted.

Which was what I said in my post. I advocated a VERY extreme course of action, and even that lands wildly short of where the OP drew the line.

THE BASTARDS

>> No.16980799

A three step guide to trolling /tg/:

Step one: Make a post about how you did something dumb. Over-reacting to a bad situation is a good start, Alpha Legion works on the entirely justified paranoia they spread.

Step two: Make a couple of inflammatory posts on both sides of the argument. Leave as soon as the inevitable second troll joins and claims to be OP.\

Step three: Let stew for 20-30 minutes, then come back and read the thread. Laugh at /tg/ trolling themselves.

"THIEVING MAGPIES! I BET YOU'RE ALPHA LEGION TOO!" shouted the sole survivor standing in the ruins of the base, smoke and fire could still be seen rising from the pieces of rubble. The walls had gained a new crimson shadow, marking the passing or the alpha legion's terrible hand, corpses of men who used to be brothers littered the destroyed ground. The man raised his bolter, his broken power armor dropping in pieces during the action, only to find out he had run out of ammunition as he pulled the trigger, he was quickly taken down and locked up by the blood raven operatives. This man is the only source of information we have for the events that unfolded in that tragic day.
It's your duty to find out what this man knows.

We're going to get some paranoid Marines out of this, aren't we?

"Well, about 300 years after they were founded, they just disappeared off the fucking map. They were fleet based, so it wasn't like they had a home-world top search for clues. Afterwards, we've seen evidence they still exist: shipments to resupply a chapter are disappear, Marines getting told that another group of similarly garbed Astartes already grabbed their stock of potential recruits a few weeks prior. From what we've gathered, their tactics are extreme and harsh. They come out of nowhere, apply for more force than is strictly needed, and then vanish. We estimate they've been growing their ranks, and currently are splint into three to four groups roughly chapter strength, given the yardstick the Codex gives us."

"Brother-Captain, if these people exist, why haven't we destroyed them?"

"Because They're extremely loyal to the Imperium, from what we could tell. They only attack clear enemies of man, and shun outsiders so intently that there's no way they've been corrupted. That and we have no fucking idea where they are."

OP amuses me, but in seriousness that level of collateral damage to ensure a purge shows that the Librarian and his cohorts failed in their duty to the Emperor. They should have been able to uncover all traitors, especially with a powerful telepath acting as their leader, and resolve the situation without defaulting to an immediate and complete purge. OP is guilty of gross incompetence at best, his actions having deliberately aided the archenemy. At worst he has been tainted by the warp and is now a pawn of the dark gods.

In either case the correct response is a full purge of OP and all those who stand beside him. Let none survive, lest this cancer spread beyond his brood.

He removed his own helmet, resting his forehead against the helmet in a moment of regret.

His eyes snapped open, fire in them. "No regrets, no guilt, the Alpha Legion must die."

Dropping the helmet, he turned and looked down the hallway. "Well, let's go hunting".

As he walked off, the light caught something peculiar on the back of neck. A three prong brith mark.
