[ERROR] No.9686665 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

After looking at the "love" thread from yesterday I realized I don't have nearly enough Callidus art. So strait up I am asking for a bunch of pics of our favorite latex dipped, polymorphing, ponytailed killers. If you want to discuss how one temple is better than another, thats fine too.....Personally I think Vindicare are the most boring of the whole lot.

I was under the impression that an Eversor, was basically what you used if you wanted to make a really gory example of a bunch of people. You could send some space marines, but the Eversor is more of a "fuck you" on the part of the inquisition.

>> No.9686884

They're by far the least likely to survive an assignment.
Their existance consists of being cryogenically frozen when not on a mission; While they are transported to their drop-off point they are imprinted with the information they need to complete their mission, put in a drop pod and defrosted on the way down to the surface.

Basically I imagine their capacity to remain calm and collected is about limited to not instantly killing the team that comes to collect them at the extraction point if they manage to complete the mission without dying.

question for you eloquen/tg/entlemen

eversors are trained to use anything and everything that comes to hand (including spoons fluff fans). Would an eversor sent to eliminate a chaos cult/marine run the risk of subversion?

Before answering, consider the implications of mr assassin getting his grubby mits on a daemon weapon, especially one of particular power (bloodthirster in a sword for example).

For a second, yes. The broken shell of a man that an Eversor Assassin is might be corrupted.

Check out the Thorian Handbook for Inquisitor. It contains a story of a Callidus Assassin who went rogue. That Temple in particular probably needs the assassins to remain quite human so they can act the part. Vindicares are far more muted, but occasionally noted to have a dry, sarcastic wit.

The Eversor Temple is one of temples that makes up the Officio Assassinorum. Eversor is Latin for "a destroyer".

The large amount of drugs and modification used to make the Eversor into an unstoppable killing machine are highly addictive and without them the assassin will surely die. This means that the assassins are completely addicted to death itself and the only way they can survive is by being placed in cryo-suspension, which sustains their bodies until called upon for the next assignment. As such, every Eversor is stored within cryo-crypts on secret ships scattered across the Imperium. These vessels remain at a constant state of alert and await the orders from the High Lords of Terra to be deployed to the battlefield.
When chosen for a mission, the Eversor is transferred from the cryo-crypt into a special drop pod. Once inside, neuro-links feed the details of the mission to the assassin while he remains in cryo-suspension. The pod is then launched at the target planet where remote links activate and begin to reanimate the Eversor while fine tuning his body for the task at hand. By the time the drop pod lands on the planet, the assassin is fully awake and ready to begin his task.

Different ends. Killing them all simultaneously means they're all dead. Whatever they were planning stops there, and it's scary in a spooky way.

Eversor attack is the stuff of legends. You will probably never mess with the Imperium again when you've seen your entire legislature put through a blender. Eversor's are terror weapons. You deploy them specifically because they cause collateral damage and terrible fear. If some get away from the initial attack, that actually is a good thing. Just spreads the fear further. Eversor will get to them soon enough.

In all seriousness, highly trained marksman, so yes, if he's focusing on taking the shot, it will hit.

On the DH website, I got a bunch of threads bitching about how people would have preferred the Callidus, but only got the Vindicare. Seems that in Ascension, you can be a shmoe that is a really good shot and Vindicare temple will take you in, all other assassins are trained from birth, and that makes playing them pretty far out from the ruleset.
