[ERROR] No.20129547 [DELETED]  [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Because it's the best fucking Ork tribe I've seen in years, another Scraplootas/Blue thread.

http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Blue

http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Scraplootas

The Scraplootas are a clan of Orks who managed to steal a Titan from the forces of chaos. A Mekboy took a shine to the Titan and now refuses to leave it, believing that he IS the Titan. Boris the Titan also has a complete, functioning Gretchin bureaucracy working on its inside. Later on, they were attacking a Tau colony and found a little blue Tau girl. Mistaking her for a blue Grot, she was embraced into the Ork society to help with mechanics. She quickly became an integral part of the clan.

HOW BORIS WOULD WORK:

The feet and lower legs form sort of hub areas. Grots come in and out, are signed in, assigned to different areas, there are basic market stalls and entertainment, casinos and the like. There is no particular culture to speak of, though the right foot is more shop-oriented, and the left more entertainment based.

Heading up the legs, we hit industrial areas, controlling joints and things in the area. Tends to be filled with lower level workers, and is a usual starting place for Grots, though some stay there, preferring its easy lifestyle to other areas.

Reaching the lower body/crotch area, we hit the first bit of proper industry. Bullets are made, parts are repaired, new parts are made. There are actually a few different factory areas, each run by an enterprising capitalist Grot. The parts are distributed throughout by a complicated series of elevators.

As we head up to the heavily armoured chest, we reach the heart of the Titan: the Bureaucracy. The bureacracy is made up of many different offices, each with specialised areas of charge, distributing parts, allocating jobs, appeasing the different areas, etc. This is arguably the most important part of the Titan.

Next, we hit the arms. The two arms actually have a bitter rivalry, as the left arm has a lot of saws, chainsaws and choppers, whereas the right arm has a lot of guns, artillery and shooters. This has led to two factions, the Shootists and the Choppists. CONT NEXT POST

>> No.20129560

Each arm does their jobs more than adequately, and when Boris moves, the arms obey, but they still feel hatred towards the other side. The arms work in an interesting way, due to their constant state of movement. Instead of using a traditional floor system, the grots move around with a complex set of wires and harnesses, attaching themselves to different wires when the arms are up, down and horizontal. The more important grots, foremen and the like, have become known as "swingees", from their ability to quickly travel around the arms using the wires.

Finally, there is the head. The head has a council, with a representative from each area of the Titan. Most of the tension comes from the two arms and their bitter rivalry, but it is unusual that any council members come to blows. There is also an elected president, who is in charge of making the ultimate decisions. Given its nature, the head of the titan has become known to the Grots as "the 'ed of state", the joke lost on them all. The head is also known for being well kept, clean, and respected. The council chambers are a sight to be seen.

Needless to say, Boris remains completely oblivious to ALL of this.

They're techy generally, not really specialising in anything in particular. Since they have a huge number of Grots and not much else, they have a lot of output in most sectors, but not many Orks to do anything with them.

Here is what we know about boris the titan.

It is an Imperior class titan which we stole from the forces of chaos, in a raid that cost us most of our boys. Because it was a chaos titan the warp taint has had some effect minor on the crew of the titan including the pilot Boris, who believes himself to be the titan referring to the titan as his body and communicating through it loud speakers. All of the other orks seem to hold this as truth, or are at least humoring him. unannounced to Boris there is actually a Grot bureaucracy within his "body" complete with various sectors social structure and even government.

Cant remember if this was canon but the daemon at the core of Boris is still very much active and powering the titan, although inadvertently kept in check by weirdsqugs created by exposure to chaos taint running around in the core, who unwittingly assault him with focused blasts of WHAAAARRRGGG!

Blue does whatever she fancies, as most of the Orks think she is a genius with a spanner, so she might add some more Dakka onto Boris sometimes. Though I'd imagine she'd keep more down in workshops, tinkering with smaller scale things (but maybe making plans and blueprints).

I think the Titan Bureaucracy is more in charge of maintaining Boris than adding things.

>> No.20129853

>>20129806
Boris is maintained by the grots because it is such a big job, sometimes they might loot some big shoota and blue might work on it but for the most part she doesn't really deal with working on him all that much.

"This council session is now open, we will start with important business, then each sector will have their turn to voice opinions and concerns, and we will have free questions at the end"

The Gretchin looked around the room at the eight councillors in front of him. Two representatives from the legs, one from the entertainment sector in the left, one from the commercial sector in the right, and two from the joint sectors of the legs. The lower torso had a factory owner representing them, the upper torso an important civil servant. The left and right arms were each represented by a swingee, and were sitting on opposite sides of the room.

The rest of the room was filled with note takers, a journalist from the Titan's news radio office, a variety of factory owners, and some curious Grots who were on break and popped in, wanting to see what the high life was like.

"The representative from the left arm will now speak." The head of the counsel sat down as a surprisingly well kept Gretchin, adorned with an innumerable number knifes, small axes, and other generally point/sharp things stood up in front of his peers at the table. "Thank you councilor... *eherm* We of the left arm would like to motion for the reallocation of grotpower to our sector. The increasing demands of keeping Boris in working order is becoming taxing for-"
"Rubbish!"

An equally well kept but infinitely more frustrated Gretchin, with a shoota bigger than his entire body propped up next to him, shot up from his seat across the table. "We all know that the left arm is doing just fine. You installed a new motor on Boris's main saw last just last week, where as we've been barely able to keep the Gailgun batteries running at all! If anyone needs more Grots its the right arm!"

The representative from the left arm immediately fallowed up with a retort "We upgraded the motor because the old one had broken! Perhaps if we had more Grots It wouldn't Have needed to replace it in the first place!"
"Maybe if you weren't so busy playing with knives it wouldn't have needed replacing in the first place!" Their banter had the ease and timing of a well practiced play. "The idustial sector has been short staffed for months! The Warboss just keeps ordering bigger and stupider crap and our current workforce isn't enough." A third counsel member had jumped in, this one short and grimy, years of oil, grim, and grit staining everything about him from his skin and close to his personality.

"The production of weapons and machines for our boys id more important than the needs of some stupid ass gits who cant help but spasm over every shooter and choppa they some across!"

"Gentlemen please, this is no place for conflict. We are supposed to be deciding the future of Boris." The counselor was the picture of stoicism among the carnage that was the counsel table. "We must set aside our quarrels and look to what is best for our society. Save your your wrath for the battle field where it is needed, for now we must think of a solution to this staff problem."
As rational and calm as he was the counselors efforts to assuage the raging representatives was for not. If something wasn't done soon the situation would only escalate and the bureaucracy that has lead Boris to prosperity for so long could come crashing down around him.

"OI Y' STOOPID GITS! What're y' go'n on about!? GET BACK TA WERK BEFER I KRUMP DA LOT A YA! ...stoopit grots... I swear Im da only sane one on dis whole dam fing..."

It was the junior-under-assistant-mek Finkles first day on the job, with the eagerness that comes from youth he climed the ladders up to the hallowed ground of the foundary level in Boris. Amongst the swaying furnaces and sliding piles of scrap an important looking grot was shouting at the team pouring shell casings "NO, NOT LIKE DAT! POUR IT QUICKA, OI ... OI UGLY, YEA YOU, YOU WIV DA FACE WAT YOU DOIN?"

Finkle edged nervily closer to the head grot and offered him a data-slate, he snached the metal plate from his hands and sniffed as he squinted at the runes drawn in grease paint.
"Yea seems loik this is yor furst day on da job. Mi namez Senoir-grot-mek Thud da first. Yau got a lot ta lurn boy but you's find us fair and hard workin lot here. Keep ya nose clean an yors fingas outta my teef draw and we's guna have no problems."

I figure a lot of the grots are smarter than average, partially due to the warp affecting their genes and activating the weirdboy gene more often and partially due to the Scraploota's primary tactic of "spam grots at it until it dies" leads to only the craftiest grots living for long enough to secure themselves a permanent spot in Boris that avoids fighting.

A character which has no flaws, or which has flaws which only serve to make the character better in some other way. Nothing in their universe provides any resistance to their whims and they will inevitably be successful in all endevours, and they generally have all the traits and personality quirks that are desirable in any given universe, and to an extreme level.

Nids are knocked right out because they don't have a personality. Furthermore, hive fleet nidhoggr is not portrayed as being immensly successful to the point of drowning out the other 'nids.

I have a feeling you are just knee jerking about /tg/ homebrews, and then yelling "Mary Sue!" with no real cause.

"And what do YOU do?"

The Head-Councillor did his best to hide his boredom, on his tour of Boris' right arm. He was already sick of having to swing around on all of these muddled wires, and he felt it was entirely beneath him. But votes were at stake, so he had to show his face.

"Oi'm in charge keeping ar' shootas clean and firin' proply, boss- I mean, 'ed Councillor."
"Fascinating. And do you enjoy your job?"
"Why yes, oi do indeed. Can't never get bored of workin' wit shootas, ser"

The shine in the Gretchin's eyes showed that he wasn't lying. Not that he had enough of a brain to lie anyway, thought the Head-Councillor. Blasphemous as it may seem, he was utterly sick of these hellish industrial corridors, he just wanted to get back to his comfortable office and do something nice and clean. Anything, even studying the daily oil distribution graphs seemed like a more interesting prospect that spending more time in this hellish place.

Still, it wasn't like he had much of a choice. If he was to keep his seat, he needed morons like these on his side, especially with the Councillor of the commercial sector hanging on his coat tails. He knew that if he was to put one foot wrong, he'd be down in the industrial sector breathing in smoke for the rest of his life. Best to just keep a friendly face. It'll pay off.

Grots have about a minute to buy or sell before they need to get out of the way of a piston or ammo cart, encouraging ruthlessly-fast negotiations, bartering, and footspeed. Extra kudos if there's a big version of this inside their equivalent of a stock market ("Da Stuff Market") in the torso.

Hah, that's quite good. Fits with Orky "health and safety procedures" too.

So, are we decided on the lead councillors being of a much higher intelligence than the other grots, through mutation etc?

Perhaps the head part is what causes them to become more intelligent, so the councillors who are elected, even if stupid initially, become cleverer from working up there.

What we know anout Boris the titan: revisited.

Boris the titan was originally a chaos Imperator titan named Victus Vae, which was looted long in a raid that cost us the majority of our boyz and considered one of the scraplootaz greatest achievements.

The latent warp taint within its has had some effect on its pilot, Boris. A former mek boy, he is now wired directly into the control throne of the titan and now believes he is the titan its self, referring to it as his own body. Apparently no one seems to think the contrary and just except it as truth.

The effects of the taint aren't just limited to the pilot though, the countless grots that crew the titan have felt its touch as well. Many years of exposure has led to a dramatic increase in the spawn of "weirdgrots" and generally more intelligent grots. These smarter and often psychic grots run the behemoth more like a city state than a war machine. Boris come complete with entertainment, market, industrial, and governmental districts all with their own social sub facet within the overall society, all run by a council of highly intelligent grots in the head that speak proper Gothic unlike the stupider grots under them.

Also of not is the bitter rivalry between the arms and its deamonic core. The left arm believes in the superiority of shoots, the left in choppas. Needless to say this can cause some friction in the council but the two districts function perfectly well in together despite their differences.
As for the core the daemon it its heart is still alive and well, but held in check inadvertently by weirdsquigs stuffed inside the core, which unwittingly assault it with concentrated WAAARRRGG at all times. Ironically these weirdsquigs are also caused by the lingering warp taint.

Thud returned to shouting at his work gang, Finkle scatched his headand got on about his new found resposibility. After much fighting with the squig he found bouncing round the corridors, finally subduing it with a large spanner and dragging it back to the kitchen he looked around for the pot he was supposed to use, after a good hour he still couldn't find it so he scraped a mega-bolta shell clean and filled it with grey-brown water that spurted out of a pipe marked "WARTA" some time later he dropped the portesting squig in and waited for it to come up to the boil.

A large, scrarred and greasy grot came to see what he was doing "So yoi da new tea grot huh? Dunt worry yus self about Thu, hes a good hart but little distracted he likes his tea wiv a dash of mota oil and sturred wiv a rag, like dis." he motioned Finkle to cupboard above a hole in the floor,"Yoi wanna use da oil in da yella tin, yea dat one" he grinned.

There's something brilliant about that for some reason. The idea of lives going on within the confines of the Titan, with the pilot completely oblivious.

Plus, you can have stories of any part of the Titan. The story of a Shootist in the right arm, of a market trader down in the commercial hub, a chronic gambler down in the entertainment sector, or a politician, or a Choppist, or a policegrot in the residential sector, and so on.

Rockeata Brugg
The chief kommando. Remarkably patient when out sneaking, and keeps his boyz just as patient with judicious use of threats and violence. Named for his habit of chomping on rocks with his beartrap-like metal jaws both as a display of 'ardness and to fill his belly when food supplies have run out on a mission (unfortunately for his underling, anyone who complains about being hungry is likely to be forced to share this unconventional food source), behind which lie his actual regenerating teeth.
