As his or her Battle Reports thread kinda went into a discussion about the Final Testament mission, I figure it's only fair that we continue these reports in a new thread with less discussion (it was a good idea Robomummy, hat's of to you!)
"So i figured we should have a thread where people can post what is currently going on in their Only War games, any interesting things that have happened to maybe give other people Ideas for missions or funny moments in a campaign or maybe just update people on you progress though a campaign.
In my campaign so far the group played a small campaign I wrote for the Tanith 1st. So far during the campaign the players have been sent out as flank scouts for a convoy of tanith troops marching to the capitol city of the planet. The players had to brave trecherous mountain terrain and thick jungles in order to protect the convoy from blood pact. Notable actions so far is the elimination of a Blood pact ambush and an enemy convoy. Also the players accidently called in an artillary bombardment on a camp of refugees that were fleeing the blood pact (awarded medals for braveyr because they told their commanding officers that it was a large enemy camp). Next they will be headed into the city.
so what has been going on in your Only War groups."
"We started with the Against the Savages adventure and are still playing a campaign in the jungle world of Skyrinne. Main enemies are Orks, although the PCs had an encounter with some misterious combined human forces (autochtons and deserters from their own regiment). They suspect that these human forces are allied with the Orks, but High Command told them to dismiss those ideas.
They've also encountered an old subterranean astartes command post (with a land speeder!). In that base they found the coordinates of the tomb of one Space Marine captain that's emplaced in Ork territory… the PCs are eager to find that tomb and its treasures…
Because of this discoveries and the fact that none of the squad members have died in 3 months of activity, they are starting to be seen as heroes by some other soldiers and hated by their Liutenant. A Comissar has been sent to accompany them from now on…
Future plans are to attack the main Ork base (if the PCs want to, try to find the SM tomb also) and then move forward to another planet/campaign."
"Currently we play a special "High Threat Tactical Assault Team" (codename: Zulu Squad) what means that everyone in the Squad has carapace armour instead of flak and ripper guns instead of lasguns. All characters have Bulging Biceps and various "durability" Talents (like Iron Jaw). The Squad has 1 Operator (squad leader/tech specialist), 1 Medic (me), 1 Heavy Gunner (with a Lascannon) and 2 Storm Troopers.
We started with the Final Testament campaign, but we had to abandon the adventure, because we broke it (we did a perfect crash landing and managed to capture the Ordinatus at the very beginning - and no, the campaign cannot handle unusual Squads, so if you want to start it with one, then your GM will have some hard times with it!).
So for now, we are on the Fortress World of Mrish, trying to purge an all-female Nurgle cult. But stuff is getting weird around there. Originally, Mrish was big with "fertility enhancing" methods to maintain a steady population, and the cult sprung from the victims (roughly 90% of the women on the planet), but lately we've encountered some pretty interesting stuff, like weird superhumans fighting alongside the cultists and some sort of greater daemon who looks exactly like a human woman in the late stages of pregnancy with the compulsory Nurgle-y horns. And we also miss the usual Nurgle things, like diseases and rot - but every women in our regiment became pregnant as soon as we made planetfall. To make things worse, we also have a Radical Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor who - guess what - a woman ."
