    I think this bears repeating. I see our guy as being brave, but not a fucking maniac. This Inquisitor mission, while likely really interesting, seems like a ton of trouble because even if the mission goes really well, it's possible that we'll just get shot in the head because the Inquisitor thinks we've seen too much or have become tainted in some way. Also, I don't want to get corrupted and fall to Chaos: we're IG and I'd rather stay that way.

    If the Inquisitor is going there personally I'd assume it's a lot safer than the alternative.

    Hard choice. The first one seems safer, but something tells me that thing will go SNAFU before long. Meanwhile the second one looks worse on paper, but we get better equipment and the inquisitor will most likely want it to succeed. Of course what will happen to us AFTER the mission is entirely different matter.

    Going with 1. The second one has more chance of surviving the mission itself, but also a bigger chance of getting BLAMED! afterwards.

    Well I wondered what it would be like to be conscripted by =I= , lets see if we can walk away from this alive and in glory. But I cant help to think that flame weapons would work best against nurgle creatures.

    people are choosing with all the assumed knowledge from the first run through (ie nurgle goop) think the decisions would be different if we took it in character.

    Lets go with 2 for the fun of it.

    And here's how we escaped from captivity:



    Shoulda picked Catachans, bros. Now I want to play a badass dude like Michael and I'm on the brink of flopping... and/or watching the Deer Hunter again for the fiftieth time.

    D. Because the Tyrant Star is awesome and I know root has a stiffy for the Haarlock legacy. As do I.

    5. Stitching ourselves and others up is useful, and it opens up for gathering more intelligence in the current mission.

    3. Big guns make loud boom

    M. Because womyn belong in the kitchen, not on the battlefield. :patriot:

    X. Stern, because that's what we are.


    EDIT: Flipflopped a bit.

    Shame I just flopped. :M

    Esquilax

    Surviving an encounter with any of those means we're exceptionally tough, skilled or just damn lucky, but witnessing D) and staying sane while entire star systems go batshit means we have some seriously resilient mind and in the end that counts for more than anything else in the 41st millenium.

    fucking occularians

    Origin story - C) Fuck spehs mahrines, surviving a close encounter with a jeanstealer is much, much more impressive. And besides, jeanstealers are cool. That is, of course, assuming the encounter was survived and not 'survived' :smug:

    He never asked for this :(

    Specialty - The genestealer origin would suggest some seriously serious wrestling, so 2

    Gender: M

    Name - Shepard

    You're all wasting a perfect excuse to enrich this thread with imperial nurse pics.

    B) because we are fighting chaos here, and taking out a chaos marine is pretty awesome for a guardsman

    5) because it sounds useful for our mission, and making ourselves useful to the Inquisitor makes BLAM less likely

    F) because why not

    Z) Shepard

    A chaos marine killing combat nurse - sounds interesting.

    :lol:

    Ok, flopped.

    Hmmm... wouldn't it be better to have the scalpel on the index finger? That's usually the finger that's best at precision movements. Also, could I convince you to spoilertag large images to make it easier for root (PBUH) to tally votes. Thx Bro. :bro:
