Tarinoita Necromunda Uprising kampanjasta

Viesti Kirjoittaja oni-da »

Pelaan Escher jengillä hetki sitten alkaneessa kampanjassa Lahdessa ja halusin kirjoittaa jengille taustatarinaa. Kirjoitan ensin lyhyen narratiivisen kuvaelman jengin kulttuurista ja sitten osasta peleistä kerättyjä tarinoita sitä myötä kun niitä pelaan. Kirjoitan englanniksi, koska kaikki lukemani kirjat 40k:sta/Necromundasta ovat olleet englanniksi ja en siksi osaa edes kuvitella näitä pätkiä suomenkielellä. Kiitos.

Speak here? On this thing here? Then what´s that green light? It measures how loud im speaking? HELLO! I see...Interesting set of equipment you have there sir. So you wanted to know more about The Celebrated Death? Our local warrior maidens? You came to the right person sir, I applaud you discerning eye. I`ve been purchasing their products for most of my long life, one could say im a valued customer.

Where to begin? Have you ever heard them speak their secret tongue? They have their own code language you see. Only they and few others know it. They call it spirit talk. For example, in their own words they are called La Muerte Celebrada. Just dont tell anyone I told you this, they dont like others knowing their secrets. They handle chem trade on this area. The wonders their Chemysts can create. Chems to help you sleep or to keep you up and even more. But surely you are above such concoctions sir.

Where to find them then? I would suggest sir that you leave them alone for the time being. Hear that? The faint music in the distance? Today is their memorial day for the dead or Dia de los Muertes as they call it. You see they dont mourn the dead, instead they celebrate. The Celebrated Death Hah! Im sure you understand now why they are called that. Quite barmy if you ask me, you would have to be mad or jaded beyond help not to feel sorrow when someone close to you dies.

If you still want to find them all you have to do is follow the music. They will sing and dance till the end of the night cycle. And then revenge follows. It always does. They will seek out the ones responsible for the latest deaths. And then who ever did it is going to hope they never existed. And soon after that, the maidens of The Celebrated Death will dance on someone elses grave...

Kids! Niñas! Gather around and let Big Sis Sig tell you a bedtime story. This one´s real spooky, so clutch your dollies and Commisar Cain action figures tight. This happened a long, long time ago. Well, not actually that long ago but way before any of you was born. Its a story from a time where nothing came for granted. We had to scrap for everything, like food and water and such. You niñas have it easy.

Anyway, we were being raided by the Enforcers. What? You dont know what a Palanite Enforcer is? Well let me tell you. They are bad men, who live in their walled castles and sometimes they come down and wanna tell you how to live. And if you dont do what they say, they´re gonna smack you in the head with a stick! We dont like em much. Where was I? Oh yeah they were raiding us. Probably cause we hit one of their scout squads earlier that week, but who knows right? We knew they would be coming eventually, but they still got the jump on us. Guns shooting and people screaming everywhere. And in that confusion, No-Longer Gaige slipped her leash and vanished. Some of you might have even seen her. Our very own Donchell de la Muerte. Pale flesh, cold skin, doesnt talk much, that´s what´s called a Death-maiden.

We fought of the Enforcers alright, gave them a good kicking. But then we found out that Gaige was gone. It didnt take long to find her tracks though, she made that part easy. We found blood marks down a tunnel, a lot of them. Even saw a few Enforcers stumbling away as fast as they could after we started following the tracks. They were badly hurt, like they had been attack by a Chymerix. We could have run them down of course but finding Gaige was the top priority see? So down the tunnels we went. Deeper and deeper, until we found a group of Sisters who had been cut of from the rest of us. They were about to be overwhelmed by the Enforcers. But between them and the Enforcers stood a blood soaked horror. It was No-Longer Gaige! She hissed at the Enforcers, blood dripping from her mouth. She just stood there, ready to take on anyone who might wanna cause harm to her Little Sisters. Maybe they saw us coming to help or maybe it was all Gaige, but the Enforcers backed off and fled.

In her first life Gaige was a true heroine to all Escher. Always cool and reliable. So maybe some of her old self is still in there somewhere.

So what did we learn from this story niñas? That Death-maidens are creepy? Thats right! But on top of that, they are on your side. If you ever get in to trouble and cant get out yourself, scream "No-Longer Gaige" three times real loud and maybe just maybe she will hear you and come to help.

And that´s the end of todays story. Go back to your madres and go to bed. Or else the Palanite Enforcers will come and get ya!

Something made people uneasy that week. Something in the air. Everyone was jumpy, on edge. Nobody could sleep. The whole settlement was like a powder keg ready to go, all it needed was a little spark. And then the Orlocks came to deliver it. A Road Captain brought his crew, blamed us for releasing some kind of gaseous toxin in their neighboring settlement. I was there when they showed up. They were showing the same signs we did. Blooshot eyes, arms twitching, smell of aggression. Matriarch Minerva came to deal with them with her sisterhood in tow. She wasnt on friendly terms with the Orlocks to begin with, but the speed with which she commanded the Orlock war party to be put to death was hasty even for her.

A battle broke out. But that battle was something I´ve never seen before. Sisters fought like some chem crazed brutes. They forgot weapons they were holding or sometimes even used them as clubs. Everything turned into a senseless melee. It was ugly, unfit for Sisters of La Muerte Celebrada. The Orlocks were little better. I saw their Captain kill one of his own crewmen in his hurry to reach us.

Thats when I too lost control. All I remember are small moments here and there. Im pretty sure I strangled an Orlock with my hair ornament. I have no idea how long it lasted, but in the end I stood alone, save for the Orlock Captain. It was like a veil was lifted from our eyes. Dead and injured all around us, we looked at each other. Im sure he was dying to take me on, but reason came back to him and he ordered his remaining his crew to withdraw. Those still able to walk carried those who could not. I knew what I had to do then, I had to get a word out of what had happened.
And now I stand before you Madre

"Was she still alive when you last saw her?" The Queen of Ciudad de Calaveras, Madre Miounne asked. Worry and pain easy to see on her face. Born from having too many reckless daughters no doubt.
"She was Madre. She fought a Road Sergeant on Highwalk the last I saw. We dont know what happened to her after" said Sister Cadence.
"I want her back Cadence. Find her no matter the cost. She has caused me much grief and its the mothers job to keep her offspring in line. Her and I will have words "

So spoke the Queen. And in her dominion her word was the law.

"All I have to do is kill this brute and say the words? Then will great power and providence come to us?" Asked the Queen, doubtful yet tempted to listen.
"Precisely" said the man in a dark gown. "And your power will only grow with every ritual killing there after."
"You are not the first one to promise me such things. And I promise you, your fate will be the same that befell your predecessors, if you lie to me"
"Ah but my God is real, very real. And he will hear your plea, if you only give him what he wants. Blood and skulls. Thats all required." he promised.
"Then let us proceed with the execution." The Escher warlord raised her sword, ready to take the Goliath captives head. But before the blade fell, warriors of House Goliath surged to the manufactorum square.

Kain was bound to the floor, his mouth gagged. He tried to release himself from his shackles, but even his titanic strength could not uproot the spike holding his manacles down. He could hear though. His warparty came to save him. He could hear their war cries and challenges. The Escher witches around him scattered to repel the invaders. A battle started somewhere up a head. Kain could hear them driving through the Escher, laughing and howling. The Goliath way.

A Forge Boss with his two-handed Axe burst through a barricade right in front of Kain, splitting an Escher ganger in two as his first business of the day. Another tried to get in behind him with a venomous blade, but he simply backhanded the wretch. Then the champion came for Kain. He removed Kains gag and said "On your feet soldier. We are leaving!"

But before he could completely remove Kains bounds, the Escher Queen reappeared. Her whip lashed out and struck the Forge Boss, wrapping tight around his neck. Electrocuting current ran down the whip. The Boss tried to scream, but all that escaped his lips was pained gurgle. He fell dead on the manufactorum floor. Suddenly, it became very quiet. His gang must have been beaten back. Kain was sure the Escher harlot would finish what she started next. But against all odds, she ordered a full retreat.

The Escher vanished, but just before he thought he was abandoned all together, another figure appeared. She was like no Escher he had seen before, wrapped in all black garments, her face hidden behind a veil of white. And she was coming for him.

"Hey you! You Escher right? Let me go and my gang will pay you handsomely. All the creds you could ever want!" said Kain
But the figure in black wasnt interested in gold or silver.
"Okay! How about we owe you a favor then? A gang of the toughest Goliath around havin`a favour for you is way more valuable than mere credits right?"
But the Death-Maiden was not interested in favors the Goliath could offer.
"Hey! Dont come any closer! Stay awa-."

No-Longer Gaige removed the Goliath Brutes head from his broad shoulders with her bare hands and through her bone dry lips, she spoke the words of power.

"Blood...for the Blood God. Skulls... for the Skullthrone."
