Welcome back to Commissar quest!

Um.. Guys, I am back... ;_;

You are otto schulte, a twelve year old girl on her way to destiny - you are a student of the scholia progenium on besvir, and a prospect to become one of the selected officials to one day lead the great imperial armies in battle, if you survive. Little is know of your past - you only know what your uncle(whom you've got no blood relation to) told you: They where charged with your care before you where old enough to crawl. For as long as you can remember you've lived amongst the stars onboard shiftships traveling the interstellar void of the immaterium.

You've arrived at the scholia progenium of which you where assigned, unfortunately so have Nikkobar the big oaf - a bully of whom you meet just before coming to the scholia, and his gang of misfits! Not all is bad, you've also meet the more friendly planetborn Angelina whom the planet mold seems to have left alright. There is also the "twins" to worry about, and how to survive the practicals, and as ever the ongoing mission to rid the world of your accursed first name "otto" - a administratum fuck up that left you with a boys name.

Your story is only just beginning.

Last week we batteled the eternal enemy, spoke with Angelina and got PAPERWORK.

Median of first three rolls for things the character is "capable" at.
Highest of first three rolls for things the character is utterly shit at.

You have to "beat" your stats (which for now are hidden by popular demand, this may change) so low rolls are good.

Your standing in front of The Tower, the massive structure towering over the rest of the campus, massive windows framing dominating all four of its clean cut sharp sides, behind them shimmering a slight light hard to make out in the morose fading afternoon sun, you scratch the back of your neck as you look towards the top - the higher you go, the more decorated the tower - saint's, angels and spires all culminating in a central massive spire - smaller then the rest of the tower as it slims into it, but flanked on all sides by sword wielding saints - their blades pointing skywards, their pale stone faces shrouded behind cloth veils.

Snorting once and then rubbing the underside of your nose you head towards the door - the air on planets was so full of.. stuff, it always got in your nose and eyes. Its why you liked the tower - it reminded you of your past life, the oil stained walls and gently humming of cognitators was comforting.

Once inside you head down the corridor, throwing a brief glance at the staircase leading up towards the Administratum's level before hurry onwards, not much further in you step into the big chamber you've come to associate with the Tech Priest - today there is no central table however, as it seems the Adept have managed to restore the Stratigium. Instead you are greeted by the visage of two heavy bulk servitors - their entire right torsos and arms replaced with massive cranes, and the Tech Priest, his mechanical eye rotates in its socket as it focuses on you.

"Are, you ready?" he lets loose in a static discharge of words.

You nod at adept with a smile "Yes!" the air smelled of machine oil and the ground shock slightly from the beating of the pistions of the water pumping systems in the background, you felt better then you had been all day. He gives no response to your answer but turns on the spot - his red cloaked robes billowing out around him, the two bulk transporter servitors seems to awake at their masters movment and painstakinly begin to turn - despite their muscular frames and agmentations it seemed that the massive cranes made motion hard on them. You follow the tech priest as he continues deeper into his sanctum - away from the chamber with its cable covered roof into another corridor - much like the one you came through, the servitors walking behind you silently. The pace is quick for a walk, and your forced to ocationally jump over a coiling power coundit or adjust your path to avoid some heafty piece of piping running from the floor - it is then the adept speaks, his voice as clad in metal as his flesh: "You will help with munitions counting. You will count items the servitors unload and package." "Y-yes" you respond, glad that you remembered to bring your data-slate - it will make it much easier.

Moments later the adept sharply turns - and you nearly bump into him - you had not even noticed the gap between the piping and wall widening into a door - the mark of the mechanicus adorning it. The priest swifly keys the nearby wall console, awakening the spirit within and splitting the door open with a groan and a shudder. On the other side you are greeted by a sizable room, sooth covered and dirty - row upon row of shelfs running along its left sides, parting that entire part of the room into aisle, the other section - right ahead was more curious, several massive tables stood there, and right a head a large metal... well hatch? you muse, adorns the wall.

An imperial aquila burnt into the sooth covered metal, still viable through the grime, the adept moved in allowing you a clearer look of the room through the doorway - the floor was hard steel, dirty, but serving its purpose of holding the structure together - the somewhat cold air inside reminding you of being near a coolant chamber inside a starship, you also notice how the tables seemed stocked with small black boxes - unopened. As you step inside your forced to make way for the servitors as they press themselves inside. "The servitors will be packaging these small back boxes - I will be bringing in a few metal containers for them - each of these metal containers will be containing ten of these smaller ones. You will count the big containers used. Ensure you are correct in your assessment, it is important."

"Yes!"

The adept turns to look at you briefly. "Do you require speaking?"

"Actually, yes - I want to ask about my Dataslate - it is running more efficient then when I turned it in..." you let the statement hang in the air - confused as to how to best approach the issue. The adept stands silent, a moment slips by before he answers with a spurt of static "I adjusted it slightly, its machine spirit is very active, and was not free to act its will - ask of it no more" "What do you mean by active?" you ask, surprised as you fish the slate out of your pocket to look at it. "Such questions are not to be answered to an non initiate" the adept states flatly, "I.. thank you again for helping me out with this.."you state sincerely, pleased that the adept would take so much of his time to restore your poor slate, you silently vow to ensure you never lose it again. "Now, await me here"

Looking around the room you notice the servitors standing by - your curious if they are intelligent enough to be waiting on their own accord, or if their master gave them some command. Looking over the table, you notice the black boxes again - their surprisingly big, what-ever is inside must be well over a meter long, and quite thick - the boxes looks to be heavy - and their lids carry the imperial aquila stamped on along with a phrase in high gothic you don't understand. For a moment you wonder how the Tech Priest intends to get boxes big enough for ten of these inside - until you are reminded of the massive hatch. That ought to be it. Still your alone in the room and its silent.

You gingerly move up to the nearby servitors, their massive bulk covering your field of vision, clad in simple blue overalls with their crude looking mechanical implants and augmentations visible for the worlds to see(Did they ask for this..?) you've never really understood servitors, you "get" them - their purpose, and their inability to act like a normal man, you grew up amongst them - but the techno sorcery to make them seemed to surreal to you - how much did they actually know of the world? Waving a hand in front of one of them you try and catch its attention. Nothing.

A sly smile spreads across your face, that means they're in none-responsive mode and won't follow you around. The adept only said to stay "here" after all, besides - looking inside the boxes won't be to bad will it? You head towards the boxes, the tables overfilled with the meter and a half long blackened containers, upon closer inspection you don't quite recognize the material of the crates their resting in, but its slightly yielding to the touch - yet strong enough to resist your finger from poking through it. The aquila on their "front" or lids - as you know can see is painted metallic black - similar to the boxes, yet - in a different hue to make it stand out. You recognize the high gothic word for "no" in the description- its the same one that rests on your slates negative response.

You reach out towards the lid of the box with childlike curiously - just a quick peak inside and you'll let it be, you stop yourself dead in your tracks however as you quickly remember the last time you did this. And the time before that - you toss an eye over your shoulder half expecting the Adept to be standing there with a pict recorder but your alone. Deciding that it probably would not be best to look into the black crates - they where no doubt closed for a reason you head towards the servitors again, curious about their nature. Their faces are simple, slack jawed and dull, not a twitch of a muscle as they rigidly stand at attention - your curious where they found men that big in the first place. Most voidborns where rather short compared to the planetborns already - you where nearly as tall as your aunt when you left for Besvir, you where rather proud of your height - and the prospect of never becoming longer haunted you a bit still.

Moments drags on as you wait for the Adept with the servitors - before long however a screeching noise tears at your ears, and your forced to plug them - the smell of planet rushed into the room along with a rush of warmer air - making you shudder slightly, turning to look at the giant hatch you see it slowly sliding to the side - revealing the world outside, a larger.. ground transport stood outside - its rear open and packed with boxes, the sound of an engine running becomes apparent as the large machine slowly rolls back until its opened behind touches the wall around the hatch(lewd) allowing one to step easily from the hatch - into the cargo hold of the vehicle. The Adept of mars whom you've grown accustomed to appears from the same door he left moments later. He strides towards you.

You await silently, and the Tech priest takes no real time to order you with more then a quick wave of his hand - as if saying "Get to it", before he turns to walk towards the door you entered the chamber from - you notice the servitors have already moved away, grabbing crates from the vehicle, your not sure when they did - and your surprised something so big moved without you even noticing... The massive servitors being their labor without care for you or anything else, using their free, unagumentated hands to pick up the small black boxes, stuffing them into the larger ones at an alarming rate - and you quickly realize why having someone count them carrying away the larger ones might be a good idea when one of them quickly grabs it with his crane-like free arm and hoists it into the air, lifting of the table easily - despite being fully loaded and moving down towards the aisle - its twin already laboring away with filling another box.

You hoist up your dataslate and begin ticking of the boxes as the machines let them trickle in - you've always had an eye for finding things, but its tedious work - and very monotone, one box - click the slate, another one - click the slate. Your happy you've got it, for you lost count around twenty in your head, its a long work - as it becomes apperant just how many of the blasted boxes needs to be packed - despite the speed the servitors works with, all the four massive tables needs to be emptied. A minute turns into two, into four - into ten, an hour - another hour, there is no signs of the servitors stopping and you think you've might misscalcuated once or twice - missed a crate here and there, but you've get an otherwise mostly stable count.. you just hope the Tech Priest won't be angry if your slightly of the mark.

You've taken to sit on the corner of the massive hatch - getting of your legs feels good, and there is plenty of space for the servitors to move in and out of the hatch, using the small stair leading up to it - its just half a meter of the ground or so. Scratching your cheek you look over the room again - and tap your slate, another box.

You sight, four hours in - the servitors have moved more boxes then you care to think about, and the shelf are stating to slowly fill up, and the tables are mostly empty by now - looking up towards the roof you blink once, the luminators high above bright in your eyes - behind you the outside world filters in through the open hatch, you can hear the sound of people walking around despite the dark sky - night fell while you where around inside, but days where short on besvir something you've grown accustomed to rather quickly - another fact of life, just another silly things planets did. The only interruption to your work was more of the black boxes arriving through the hatch - a tiny respite.

Click - click. Each box carried away gets a mark - you notice you've just passed the four hundred mark... your mind begins working - four hundred times ten? Four thousand! You smile gently, remembering the words of your teacher, happy to have found a use for them - but what could they adeptus really want with all these boxes? "You are relieved" a static voice calls out, you jump slightly at the unexpected voice - standing in the door to the corridor is the Adept - as impassive as always. He lingers for a moment before continuing: "Show me your notes".

You remain silent as the adept tinkers with your slate, moments drags on as he pushes it every now and then.
Looking up from it to peer at the working servitors then back to the slate. He lets lose a series of low noises.
Your not sure what they mean, but you've seen adepts do it before, static, almost like a broken vox unit.
Observing the redclothed man you try and suppress your sense of dread, you've got no way of reading his disposition
The metallic side of his face as impassive as a wall - and his human side is stern - giving like its partner no clear indication
of his opinions of your work. Until at least he turns the slate over in his hand and offers it back. "Satisfactorily, you have completed your given task."
"Thank you" you manage to get our - the adepts mechanical eye whirls around and clicks before he continues:
"I am not very good at reading the flesh child, do you require sustenance? Use of the sanitarium?" you look at him, surprised to hear such words from a priest of mars.

You remain silent for a moment, pondering the question - you've probably missed dinner, so food would be appreciated, but your also equally interested in actually speaking to the tech priest, tucking away the dataslate in your jacket again you turn and nod at him "Sustenance would be appreciated" he nods, and turns around without a word, no doubt expecting you to follow him - which you do, leaving the room itself was good enough after looking at its walls for hours. The tech priest moves quickly - you've come to realise he's not a man that tardies after all, occasionally you hear him emit those low static sounds but you pay no real heed - its an adept of mars, they -do- that after all don't they?

Suddenly, much like last time he takes a sharp turn and opens a door in the corridor - walking inside. Hurrying up behind him you are greeted by a somewhat sizable room, a single long table standing as its center piece - along with two bolted down rows of benches - its otherwise mostly empty, no decorations adorns the walls aside from a few lone pipes - the walls and floor are a dirty bronze color, rusty almost. The only other thing of note is a series of tubes hanging from the wall to your right - you recognize them as food dispensers, most ships had them. A stack of plastima plates resting nearby. "You know how these work?" the adept asks. You nod, and move to dispense some of the paste - its almost nostalgic in a way as you acquire a pile of the red substance on your plate (Unfortunately, it seems he lacks the yellow one - alas) You sit down opposite of the Adept, he makes no motion to speak - nor any to acquire food of his own - both his mechanical eye and human one regards you coldly.

You fish out your personal spork from your inner jacket pocket - the shiny piece of metal is another keepsake from your time amongst the stars, and you begin to scoop up the food - its.. mostly like you remember it - fluid, filling and mostly tasteless, which is fine. You play around with the consistency for just a moment before swallowing and turning to talk with your dinner partner: "If you don't eat, you won't grow strong!" you state, parroting your uncles saying between scoops of food. There is a slight static sound - and some of the priests words seems warped, as if he's tuning them into your range of hearing "I forgave the need for food a long time ago, the spirits feeds me now" this surprise you - you've never really heard of a person not needing to it.. but, then again he was a priest, for a moment you fancy asking him how they do it - but you've been around adepts enough to know they like to keep secrets instead you try and skirt the problem by asking: "You make this static noise, what is that? Is something broken?" there is a silence before the adept leans back slightly - his shoulders lowering in a very human manner before he answers - and while emotion is drained from him you could swear he sounds a bit taken back. "I guess that is what it sounds like to your ears - I am speaking Technolinga with my brothers over the vox - it is more efficient then words"

You cock your head to the side - interested. "Can I learn it?" The red clothed man shakes his head "No, it takes years - and much prayer"

You scoop up the remainder of the red paste of your plate - and give a quick offer of thanks to the emperor and all that is holy for the food that was provided today - as is due. You then turn to look at your provider and remain silent for a moment before asking "Do machines ever get lonely?" you know their spirits are powerful, and your slightly worried about the one in your slate - it did sacrifice itself for you, and you'd rather not just leave it unattended. "My slate.. I'd rather not it feels I don't appreciate what it did for me - but I can't talk to it like you do.." your shoulders sink slightly at this, you can't help but feel a bit guilty over the whole ordeal, and the idea of the mud still makes you feel like gagging - this slate helped you back then, it was somehow connected to that whole mess you'd rather forget. "They are pleased as long as you use them" he states dryly, before continuing "If you are worried, I can teach you basic rites of appeasement - not today - another time, could always use more help counting boxes, fair trade off."

You nod quickly - before managing a "Yes, that would be just what I needed - I'll work hard!" - this places soothed you in a way you could not quite explain, just being inside helped you a bit, clear your head.. away from the ground, and sky, and mud - and, well everything .. really. Coming here every now and then seemed like a perfect thing - and if you got to somehow appease the spirit of your slate, it would be even better. "My name is Mercutio Sermalian, you will come here the same time next week and I will have another task for you" he states - his voice cold and hard, but you see something in his human eye you can't quite place. You nod again and turn towards the door - the priest makes no attempt to stop you so you presume the conversation is over.

Your already looking forward to it as you step out into the dark and cold air outside - the stary sky gleaming overhead as you pounder your next action.

You turn your heading towards the girls dormatory, intent to share your experiance with the Tech Priest with Angelina - and her roomate should the odd girl be around, moving across the massive cortyard you're greeted by a quick sight of several of the armored sisters - not the first time you've glanced them, marshing past in the distance towards the dirt gate. Their regal looking silver armor shimmering in the late night air by the light of the moon, the air is chilly, something you've also come to realise with planets - when they enter night cycle the temperatures dip. Its somewhat incovinant. Your talk with Angelina passes rather quickly - you share some of your experiance (she's intrested in particular in the servitors) and the two of you discuss some of your lecture material - in particular the math lecture of the coming day before you part ways again.

You enter your drom without much issue - and soon tuck in for the night.

You grunt, and force yourself out of bed in a single fluid motion, leaving the comforting warmth of your bed for the cold air outside.
your beds sheet drags with you for a moment before you gather then up and toss them back over the bed, for now you need to get
dressed and wash yourself up - dropping of your sleeping wear you head for the washing chambers of your quarters - the tiny room
the door to your right leads to, while the water pours over you, you take the time to reflect over the last two days - they where mostly
uneventful, you got a good grade on your math test, stopping by Angelinas place and have her help you really did wonders - she
really good at numbers, your not half bad yourself but the teacher is horrible at explaining anything. Making sure to wash your red short
hair you contemplate your continual... reputation, over the last two days - much like before you've had a great deal of issues talking to
the other kids - your fairly certain Nikkobar is spreading other rumors about you as well. You need to look into that, Angelina tells you
people seem to avoid her as well - as your friend she seems "to be dangerous" as well, or something silly like that.

Stepping outside, the steam billowing out from the cubical you showered in hiding your features in a cloud of white(Censored)
dressing goes fast - you grab your jacket, pants - and reinforced boots, you also make sure you pack your dataslate. Time for breakfast.
The low squat dining hall is mostly empty this time of the day - and they seem to be serving something called "Mash Timlin's with Grox slices"
What-ever that was. As you stand looking out over the mostly empty hall you notice two people you recognizes - in a corner alone sits Nikkobar
in another, closer to you is Angelina, seemingly preoccupied with her slate, not noticing you.

You head towards Angelina - but not before giving Nikkobar the worst glare you can muster up. He's a heretic, and you hope your glare manage to hurt him somehow.
Stepping across the dining hall you you a quick glance outside - the sun is reaching towards the sky - and the shimmering light filtered in casting a warm yellow color over
the sides of the room, reflecting of the white tables and benches bolted down into the checker patterned floor. Angelina looks up at you as you slide down next to her, already
with your spork out and scooping up the "mashed" thing, its like most food on the planet - quite good. "Morning Schulte" she says, putting down her slate on the table
"Trouble sleeping as well?" you shrug at her comment before answering: "I guess, awoke early, been tossing a lot tonight - think its the practical, they still haven't told us
anything at all about it have they?" Your friend runs a hand through her hair with a sight before shaking her head and answering: "No, just that we'll be away for a day"

"So Angelina", you say between chews. "Did you hear any other rumors about me recently?" your companion whom seems to have returned attention to her slate and lazily eating away at her own food answers you after a few moments "Eh, well - nothing new I guess, rumor still have it your some manner of freak from the ships - you know, warp touched or something, either that or that your somehow a mutant, or something more fanciful - like the whole thing with having your brain replaced with tech. Did you have your brain replaced at some point Schulte?" You giggle slightly at that "Of course, its what we do on ships, silly planetborns - but honestly, what about you? Are people still giving you a hard time?" "Nothing new there, still seems to avoid me - I've not hear any rumors about me, but I am sure there are some since I spend time with you - don't really matter however, means I get to be alone - its handy, perhaps we should spread more rumors? At this rate people will be so afraid of us we can walk where-ever undisturbed"

You shallow the last of your food before pushing the plate aside and standing up, practical awaits - "Are you coming Angelina?" you turn and ask your friend - she nods, and gets up herself "Lets get going - I don't want to be late, what-ever it is we're doing" the two of you head outside, the crowd slowly increasing forcing you to elbow your way through to ensure some semblance of dignity remains, it seems people do try and avoid you - for what-ever reason as you continue out into the open, the trip to the southern gate "the dirt gate" is a short one from the mess hall, just around the corner - its massive steel reinforced gates wide open for any and all, the slope bellow it taking you out into the cleared land bellow the Scholia - the "dirt farms" of trenches and similar military exercise halls - you've been told that in this kilometer wide playground of dirt and sand the stormtrooper detachment is housed. You've only meet them once.. and that did not end to well, or really well depending on your outlook. "Think we'll be in the trenches again?" you ask your friend as you make your way across the packed dirt road. "No clue, but the slate said "Practical weapons handling and cleaning" what-ever that means, but I don't really trust it.. if we get that crazy man from last time." you shudder at the thought - where they going to execute another boy in front of you today? The scene still haunted you, the sight of the gore and boiling blood.

A group of kids your own age was gathered not to long from the shoddy check-point leading out into the dirt farm proper. You recognize a few of them, even if you don't know their names. Class mates, deciding for now not to agitate them further you stand to their side with Angelina, looking out over the brown ground, far of in the distance you think you can make out some massive moving black box, but your not certain.

Commissars are usually outnumbered, only a handfull per thousand troopers - some regiments are so big they never even see their own commissar, and the PDF forces of planets usually have one assigned, but he is attached to several planets at a go.

Moments drag on, as you stand silent with Angelina, awaiting the arrival of your teacher. The wind blowing gently in your face - billowing dust around the brown dead ground, far of in the distance you see a group of men run across the ground - mere black dots far of in the distance. The air tastes of planet, that curious sticking feeling in your nose, and the cold rush in your lungs as you take a deep breath. Its not unpleasant, but you prefer the air inside a ship to this any day. Its just so, full of "stuff" - you keep catching yourself wanting to sneeze but not quite being able to. Stuffing a hand into your jacket you feel the slate bellow your fingertips, waiting your command like always. Its then you start seeing it approach - a cloud of dust with a core of black anger. Its a blocky vehicle approaching you, you recognize it as the "transport" that your teacher arrived in last time. A heavy looking piece of moving steel. You and the rest of the kids begin to form up - knowing by experience that you don't want to be caught not standing at attention around a teacher - their previous urge not to stand next to you or Angelina evaporates as the group seem to collectively hold their breath while the black steely warmachine comes to a halt before you.

The hatch in the back opens, and out steps a single man - a red stormcloak and a steely face topped by a red hat. "I am Commissar Rim, welcome to your Practical" you recognize him. Its the man from your last practical.

>And its not 12:52 GMT+1 - I overslept today, which was great (not) so we missed about an hour of potential game time, so I pushed a head a bit. Sadly I've got real life commitments coming up. But we did blast through to the Practical.
