    Cain is also one lucky bastard who spends as little time possible on the front lines.

    So are we getting an exorcism like this



    Complete with QTEs such as 'you have one minute from the time this update is posted to post a sequence of directions lest you accidentally turn your back and DAEMONS APPEAR FROM THE WARP'?

    If Max von Sydow is performing the exorcism, I'm in.

    Oh, I'm pretty intrigued right now. The Deathwatch marine sounds strangely compelling as well.
    Just one question, the fatepoint that Schaeffer did not use, would he still have that when exorcised?

    root: so, Schaeffer's soul is now in the Immaterium? And playing as his soul in the Warp is an option?

    So I'm a bit confused; are we gonna play as Schaeffer after he gets exorcised, or are we gonna have a trippy Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite/End of Evangelion-esque metaphysical journey beforehand?

    In Dark Heresy, becoming exorcised costs you a fate point, so I think we'd be starting from nothing.
    Makes us weaker, nuttier, and less sociable, while giving us ability to sense the warp, resistance to corruption, and immunity to corrupting mutations. Seems like it's generally a rough trade-off, but possibly useful if we're returning to Planet Ooze.

    I'd say go for it, unless root has something more interesting up his sleeve.

    Probably deathwatch marine, because I have faith in Codex for dooming this guy quite fast like the previous ones.:rpgcodex::roll:
    Still good story and good example that cool stuff wont always lead to good endings.

    I kinda like the idea of a post-possessed Schaeffer, actually.

    Me too. I mean, it doesn't sound too bad that we had to sacrifice ourselves to overcome the odds, since I'm still not convinced that we could've taken out the marines+daemon+sorcerer. That way we at least managed to not suck so hard as to screw up the whole scenario (like we kinda did back with the lieutenant). Paying a fate point and some other things to survive a daemonic host-party seems fine to me. We're IG afterall and can't win every battle. Deathwatch is boring since the sudden rise in power would force root to make us face much stronger stuff than we're used too, and I kinda like the current setting.

    Either way, I'm fine. Keep it up root.

    I'd be inclined towards option 2 for now.

    Going with 2, don't really want to play as a Terminator.

    Would prefer a REAL Ultramarine but as long as they are of the gene-seed of Guilliman and recognize who their spiritual liege is, it's good enough. Despite their heresy towards the Codex Astartes.

    Voting 2.

    I like how option 2 leaves us without two of the more useful Space Marine augmentations for dealing with and identifying toxins. On the other hand, if we choose option 1, our character will spend his entire existence struggling with the fact that he can never be an Ultramarine.

    Watch as root creates a variety of scenarios that can only be solved through judicious use of Steel Rain.

    Voting 2.

    I don't really feel like larping an Ultrasmurf, but 2 is decent enough I guess, and I'm not saying that because I was on IRC when it was created (didn't contribute shit though). :M
