Dio waved back, his other hand holding his heavy spinfusor.
Tophat shouted out.
Somebody has to be around!
I wanna see you dance! It would be awesome!
Randomly switching subject! How does it feel to have a voice in your head yourself?
Like I said, I'm not drunk enough to agree to that right now.
And I dunno. I'll need some time before I can really come up with an opinion.
Hmmm, for some reason I'm getting the feeling we may have forgotten something...
"Wait, where's Tophat?" Four suddenly asked Dio.
"That fellow with a Tophat on him? I saw him running towards the dam when you were there."
OoC: I'm heading to school now, but I'll respond when I get there.
We've forgotten something? Such as?
OoC @Ven: Yup.
Plentiful Warp energy has been spilled.
"Oh Goddammit. That's annoying." Four groaned.
"Momma! I found your pendant!" Rose said, running over to Four and handing her the pendant Regulus took from her.
"Is this what you've been doing? Looking for this?"
"Well aren't you just the best daughter ever!" Four said as she gave Rose a big hug.
Tophat. We forgot Tophat. Now he's off...who knows where.
@Ven: Oh hey! Now maybe I can be finished with my character's in this thread. I hope @Rosh doesn't mind if I God-mod one of his characters to do it though.
Ommigosh! How could I forget about him!
Well... he wasn't at the dam with the rest of us... so that either means he's at the Test Site, wich is a pret-ty long ways from here, or he's wandering about somehwere.
Either way, it'll probally take a while to find him.
When Regulus had fallen (Assuming he did} a great swirling vortex of energy appeared in the sky and the Litany of Fury emerged from the Warp. A huge Space Marine Battle Barge, 7km long and could carry multiple companies of Space Marines and deploy via Drop pod, Thunderhawk or teleportation. It looms over the Planet, red like dried blood. Aboard the bridge a balding figure in gold armour and red armour looked down upon the planet. Even without sophisticated scanners and auspex's, Gabriel Angelos knew the sorry state of the place and the shame that it would never know the Emperor's light, only his fire.
The Marines immedietaly establish Vox links with the ship, reporting their location so a Thunderhawk can be dispatched to pick them up.
Well let's hope we can find him. I'd hate to not get a chance to say goodbye.
@Ven: Quick question, how did you decide on blowing up the planet? Also, would you mind giving my characters a heads up in some way so they know to GTFO?
Tophat looked up, and saw the ship.
It ran back towards where Tanners ship had been, hoping to find something that could be used to escape.
Dio looked up at the ship.
"Seems like a planetary bombardment!"
He started frantically going through different frequencies, trying to call in a cruiser.
You can say that again. I'm hoping he'll come with us though, Where ever we're going.
@Ven: Quick question, how did you decide on blowing up the planet?
OoC: Viiirus booomb! >:D
"What? You serious?" Four asked Dio. She looked up at the ship and said to Dio, "You may be right. Quick, follow me! I've got a plan!"
Let's hope he finds us first, because I don't think we'll have time to look for him.
OOC: Yes I will give you a heads up. There is a doomsday clock aboard the ship for counting down to Exterminatus. Virus bomb I think. Eroding the surface of the planet vs burn the surface, chose erode.
Gabriel's face showed a brief flair of sadness before solidifying into steely resolve. "All Blood Ravens, return to the Litany at once. In the name of the God-Emperor, I hearby declare Exterminatus on this world. I sign the death warrant of an entire world and consigh a million souls to oblivion. Let the Imperial registry take full account, the emperor protects." He says Chapter wide.
The Marines on the surface look sullen at the knew. "Exterminatus...I have...never seen one before." Lysandros said. "Give us more time! We could cleanse this world, its not beyond hope" Caim shouts wildly. Tarkus appraoches him. "Enough Brother Caim, do not fault the sword. The fact is; Exterminatus is the kinder fate." Caim was now silent but he saluted and stood ready.
"I hope it's good!"
OoC: Should Tanners ship still be there?
OOC:The life-eater virus as used on Isstvan III and Stalinvast is terrifyingly voracious, capable of spreading across the entire surface of a planet in a matter of minutes. The virus can penetrate power armour and rebreathers. The virus quickly rots and breaks down anything of biological origin, reducing it to sludge. Jungles and forests quickly rot into lakes of sludge.
The rapid breakdown of organic matter releases tremendous amounts of flammable gas. The gas eventually ignites, either on its own or with the intentional insertion of an incendiary device, into an apocalyptic, planet-wide firestorm, searing the planet's entire surface to bare rock, as well as burning the atmosphere of all oxygen
OoC @Kirke: Yup. But I think it's near the Nevada Test Site. Wich is a shit-long way away from the Dam.
Oh man. Don't tell me we're gonna die after being through all this!
That would be too lame for words!
OOC: Im just gonna say the Marines are with you guys.
A Thunder Hawk gunship swoops over the city , baring down on the marines to pick them up as they waited with the others. "This planet is dead, if you have the means to leave...do it." Tarkus says disspassionetely.
Don't worry, I've got a plan.
"It's good enough!" Four responded to Dio as she ran off into Tanner's ship. "Well thanks for the heads up at least!" She shouted back to Tarkus.
OOC: Tanner moved his ship to the Dam, so no, it's not gonna be in the same place.
OoC: @Nailik Tophat fell over somewhere along the way though, so I say it is pretty close to the ship.
Tophat looked around, then started searching for souls, with so few around, it didn't take long for it to find the group.
It started running in that direction.
Dio followed Four.
Four gathered up everyone in the ship. (For simplicity's sake let's say that she found Tanner and everyone else who may have still wanted their character in the new thread) "Alright, now everyone get close. My new friend here is gonna get us all out of here." Four said, nodding at WA9.
Goddammit. Where's Mia and Conall? I can't find them anywhere.
OoC @Drak: Really? As I remember it, Tanner arived at the Test Site with the ship, but left using EMily's light-speed travel.
But I supose it doesn't really matter. x)
Also, I'm off for a bit. I'll be back in 40 minutes or so.
Tophat ran inside the ship, and to the group.
"Hello! I hope you lads and lasses have a plan!"
Dio looked at WA9.
"How is she gonna do that?"
The thunderhawk comes in for landing, too big to land on the actual damn it hovers level with it and drops the ramp for the Marines and Librarian to board. The ramp closes and the ship speeds off back to the Litany.
"Tophat! Glad you're here, go get near the others. We're about to leave." Four said, giving Tophat a smile. She turned to Dio and said, "I have no idea, but she assures me she can!"
She asked Tophat, "You haven't seen Mia or Conall recently, have you?"
Nailik: I think I remember @Outis mentioning something about Tanner going back to the ship before he left. But whatever, like you said, not really important.
Tophat walked over to the others.
"Not that I can think off."
It then understood what that meant.
"I'm, I'm sorry."
OOC: Im going to school shortly so if I don't fire someone else can.
"Well I'm not leaving without them if I can help it." Four said. She wandered over to the door and looked out.
Goddammit Sweetness, don't make me have to leave you behind.
@Ven: Eh, fire right now if you want. Won't get in the way of my plans. In fact I'd prefer it so I could finish this and get to bed.
The Thunderhawk lands inside the Litany cna the Marines disembark. A Chaplain is waiting to scrutinise them.
Everything was set, the Litany had no Cyclonic Torpedos at present and so would have to make do with the out-dated virus bomb. A cruel end.
Gabriel had to be the one to press the button. He couldn't let his Brothers bear such a burden. He looks down at the switch and presses it with a Gauntleted hand as the doomsday clock hits the right time. The virus bomb flies from the ship, impacting in south america. The continent is consumed in minutes as the life-eater virus spreads across the world.
Dio walked over to Four.
"We have but minutes. Let them go."
He puts an armoured hand on Fours shoulder.
Their works done, the Litany enters a warp portal and exits the system as the planet is eaten alive.
"Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck! We can't wait anymore! Get us out of here!" Four said to WA9 as she walked over, her head held down to hide the tears in her eyes.
Then WA9 did her thing and everyone was whisked away before the virus could kill them.
OOC: Okay! That's it for me! I'm off to bed now! See you all next thread!
OOC: Same here, would epilogue but can't be arsed.
As the virus purged the earth, the small remnants of humanity still left stood to meet their doom. Even the zombies, and the animals in the woods, turned to look as their world was destroyed.
