Well, I can see their frustration in not achieving the primary objective of the mission. Which wasn't achievable anyway because the whole mission was a hoax to get ahold of a Fallen but that's another story they are not aware of.

 

Ah, some players like being challenged by their GM and others like the GM tailoring scenarios so that they, the players, normally "win" the mission. In auto-cruise mode. Me, I think that only a few losses and partial successes make real victories meaningful at all. How else to build a sense of accomplishment?

Alex explicitly and specifically stated that he believes his players are meta-gaming this notion and that it was not a conscious IC decision.

 

But you're right, such stuff should be handed over to the DW Librarium, and I don't know how much access the Big "I" has to that, although it could just as easily be the Chief Epistolary saying, "OMG like dudes!  Thanks for the Sacred Bleeding Heart of Saint Ducttape!  We owe you a high fiver!"

Chaos taints everything and is basically the cornestone of the Imperium vs Chaos thing. Still not sure is metagame.

 

Well if a KT brings a most holy relic to the Librarium they would be exactly like that, and would get Renown to the whole team.

I don't even know HOW a marine could keep for himself a relic, hiding it from the Chamber of Vigilance, and not considering himself a ******* traitor for as a marine you own only your life.

Psh. They don't even own that.  Very few people do, actually.

 

The chapter remade you.  Without the vision of the Emperor, without the Primarchs who once carried out his will (and may still do so), and without the resources of the Chapter (and much of the Imperium) you'd be a cave-dwelling hunter-gatherer on some backwater, waiting to be eaten by the Great Devourer.

 

No, you don't own your life.  The Chapter does.

You own your life only to spend it in service of the Emperor :P

The life of a space marine is spent chasing death.  Their reward for a job well done is another mission.  There is no R&R.  They don't enjoy that stuff anyway.  Can't in some cases...

 

There is only one fate for a space marine...unless they go traitor.

THERE IS ONLY ONE FATE FOR A SPACE MARINE.

 

A traitor's death is still a death in the service of the Emprah, after all :)
