    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    (+1 Fate point everyone, excellent stories.) There were a lot of laughs in the wake of Squad 16's stories. Despite the variety, the common thread of military- or in the case of Cyntha's story, morbid- humor was a resonant link that chained their tales together. In spite of the grim dark cosmos...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    The platoon and their cohabitants, a 4th Brontian Longknives platoon and a handful of Skrynne-guards, had all contributed and so had all been fed. Some of the locals even offered some native seasonings and guided Natalie in the proper use of them. Skrynnes offered locally "spiced" lho-sticks and...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    Cyntha and her colleague struggled with each other to work their way through differences in speech. Both were incredibly frustrated by the end, but the basics had been established: they were both sergeants just trying to sergeant. There were rocks to lift and barricades to push, which were...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    Lt. Walker grumbled something under his breath that sounded like it rhymed with, "Reedy mudder trucker," then sighed and shook his head. (Commerce 40 [30 + 10 for supply availability] v 92, failure). "Ain't even cracked open the supply ships. Can't get ya one now. Try back later, ya goon."...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    Lt. Schrilblut follows Ralley up to the helm and leans forward to peer out the narrow driver's sight. Pointing down the tarmac, he informs her, "There's a supply depot about three hundred yards down on your left. It's at the edge of the perimeter of the city." He glances briefly to Cyntha over...

    "We don't actually know," Cyntha answered the Brontian Commander, and turned to the nearest idle teammate. "Tib, try to get Lieutenant Rancher on the Chimera vox." The vox was located up front, within reach of both the command chair and the Pintle gunner seat. "Let's not waste time. Give us a...

    Schrilblut nodded, then turned to one of his men and handed off a sheathed knife. The Guardsman jogged off toward the shuttle. "Sergeant Cyntha, where is your platoon officer?" Over at the shuttle, Wilhelm could clearly see the engine whining down and the smoke dissipating and a clear absence...

    The lever was large enough for the operator and weapons specialist to stand alongside one another and grip the lever with two hands. With Wilhelm's help, the ancient machine broke free of its rusted position. Though they could not see it, they could hear the valve that closed the fuel line to...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    The possibility of imminent and immediate death made it hard for Ralley to really focus on the auspex or process what she was seeing. It was all kind of a blur. She knew what she was looking for, but not exactly what it looked like. While she was scouring the shuttle's innards with her eyes...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    The shuttle crew did not answer. If she was going to try to save the shuttle, Ralley knew she'd have to reboard and find the fuel line controls. Tib finally found the sweet spot. Three Stubber rounds bore through the front fender of the warbuggy and found the drivetrain. It separated, caught...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    If the Chimera was a tumbleweed in a whirlwind, Wilhelm was a Zen master in the eye of the storm. Once he found his center, there was no stopping him. The first explosive round tore off the hood and singed the driver; the second shot plugged the barrel of the rokkit launcha. If you've never seen...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    Cyntha swivels the turret to face the latest threats and opens up the Multi-Laser. Two shots connect, and two is all it takes. The last warbuggy if the initial assault detonates, flips, and lands on its top. A pair of smoldering, black-green shapes lie nearby. Glancing up at the shuttle, Ralley...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    Stubber rounds knock a few dents into one of the incoming buggies but otherwise seems ineffective. Twirling the Multi-Laser around, Sergeant Harris gets similar results: only one shot connects, but it leaves a smoking hole in the buggy's frame. Then the Bolter comes to life with a DAKKA...

    What followed was damn near close to a slaughter. Cyntha barked her orders and spun the turret to fire on the passing warbuggy, which seemed hellbent on reaching the shuttle. The first shot nearly crippled the gunner. The second one caught the ammo box, which detonated and lit both orks on fire...

    Cyntha only landed a single shot in her latest volley, but it was a good one. The fuel line beside the driver of the lead buggy sprang a wild leak, dousing the driver in flammable fluid. He began swerving, trying to block the flow with one hand and steer with the other. A fine mist from the...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    With clear instructions, the team begins to come together, and Cyntha's bellows invigorate the crew. Her shots, however, go wide. Unfortunate. While the orks on foot had been smart enough to go to ground, they had not been smart enough to stay entirely behind cover. Wilhelm plugs 2 shots into...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    Tib crouched at the edge of the shuttle's bay to brace his maybe weapon on the floor and fired again. The superheated bolt of energy cleanly connected with the front of the lead warbuggy. It shook, but the driver corrected, and continued forward. Cyntha's barrage danced through the trio of...

    The 1337th New Texas Abyssal Fists

    The Chimera roared to life and smoothly disembarked from the shuttle. The treads clattered loudly down the metal ramp and the troop hatch closed on well oiled pistons. With the driver and seven men safely ensconced in the belly, the Multi-Laser turret, heavy Bolter forward gun, and...

    Girard's eyes narrowed in on movement in the distance. A pair of runtherds each leading a pair of gretchin were ambling rapidly toward the shuttle. They were 90 meters away and running full force down the open runway. Judging by the size of their armaments, they weren't packing much. Behind...

    The First Engagement - AGAINST THE SAVAGES ARRIVAL "On every world that I have visited, I have found some measure of the Emperor's Benevolence. In some places, that manifestation was harder to find than others, but here it is clear. The Emperor has granted us a worthy foe as an opportunity to...
