It falls to the flawlessly witty and inflammably haired CEO Benjamin Kasen to introduce you all to the ABC . . .


* * *

Welcome!

Welcome one and all, to the ABC.

This is the Out-of-Character Discussion Thread for the comediepic RPG referenced above.


What is the ABC?

The ABC, or, to those of you with a pathological fear of the Roman alphabet, the Anti-Badger Crusade, is your one-stop shop for badgers, more violence than you can shake a stick at, and more sticks than you’ll know what to do with.

From one perspective, it is an epic tale of interstellar war, wherein a brave group of elite warriors from every path in and outside of the 40K universe – Guardsmen, Orks, Dark Eldar, Space Wolves, Werewolves, Demifoxes, Businessmen, Inquisitors, Ninjas, Psykers, Chaos Marines, and, at one point, a vending machine – do battle with the Badger Empire, a threat ignored by the Imperium at large.

Using a slightly less deceptive set of words, it’s a long-running action-adventure series with vast tracts of slapstick humor, self-parodizing conspiracies, and unnecessary violence. It’s been running for some 20,000-odd posts back on the original server Portent, evolving from its humble roots as a joke about forum members gone missing due to the work of badgers, to the grand narrative that unfolds before you, with a vast and shifting cast of characters.

And you’re welcome to be a part of it.


A word of note: The 40K universe depicted here is not the Grim Darkness of the Far Future. The Thirsting Gods are there to be laughed at, and preferably wedgied. Those of you who want your tales of gothic horror and multi-millenia-old revenge can go submit novels to GW.


How do I join?

Two easy steps.

1) Create a character.

This can be virtually anything you find would be an interesting character to play. You might be with this person for a while, so try to have a little room for depth; while a sentient vending machine may be good for a chuckle, it hardly plays the distance. Don't worry about sides - the Badger Menace is greater even than the rift between Chaos Marine and Inquisitor, although intra-group tension certainly has its place.

Disclaimer: If you play anything with the power of a C'tan that can crush a Thunderhawk by focusing on its own left testicle, you will be laughed at and sent home. If you come to us with anything that references Dragon Ball Z, you will be shot on sight. Yes, over the Internet. We have ways. No jury will convict us.

2) Get online and talk to us.

Simply get on MSN and speak to myself, Leviathan, or Grimskull Gutslusher. If you don't have MSN, get it. This is the primary medium of communication between ABC'ers. We'll talk to you, help you flesh out your concept a little more, work out a way to get you in, maybe even laugh at your expense. Although that last bit won't probably happen unless you ignore our earlier disclaimers.


Good luck, and obscenely ecstatic hunting!

Benjamin Kasen
ABC Minister of Random Disappearances

Grimskull Gutslusher
17-06-2005, 13:41
Name: Grimskull Gutslusher
Rank: Lord Exquisitor
Division: ABC Quisition
Race: Ork
Age: Approximately 120 terran years. He never really counted.
Gender: Uh . . . Ork?
Nicknames: Grimmy, GG, Slow-arsed Fat Git.

Features: 11 and a bit foot of solid Orky muscle . . . generously coated in flabby Orky fat. He sports a cybork body built with whatever ol’ Doc Hannibull had to hand that day in ‘da surjery’, most notably covering the right temple and eye, which glows red and blue depending on Grimskull’s mood. Overall: Big.

Gear: Top of the line mega-armour with in-built squig medical system and enough extras to put James Bond and Inspector Gadget to shame. Shame he used that manual as a fungus brew coaster before remembering to read it.
And of course, his left arm is a power klaw. Mr Krunch in fact – the shiniest power klaw around. No actual polishing takes place.

Likes: Squiglets, fighting, Leviathan, bossin’ gits, squiglets, other ABCers, his pet squig Mittens, fighting and squiglets.

Hates: Badgers. Gits. Running out of Squiglets. Running. Jogging. Jumping. Human sized vessels – they never have big enough seats.

Personal Bio:

On appearance: A huge and viciously brutal ork warlord with a cybork body and a powerklaw the size of a man.

The reality: A big softie, who holds his friends dear but still likes to ‘stick some zoggin’ boot in’ because he’s got to keep up on appearances, right?
More often that not Grimskull will miss the big fight, either by his own (mistimed) love for Squiglets or by a display of some of the worst non-fatal luck and fumbles experienced by any creature over a hundred years old anywhere.

Has an intelligence level not usually associated with orkdom, but his true intelligent mind is generally not readily apparent without closer inspection, disguised as it is behind his hearty and uncomplicated approach to life and by his awkward and bumbling clumsiness.
Grimskull, after a hundred-odd years in the fast paced and brutal warlording business finds himself now as the head of an enforcing and intelligence branch of the ABC, with his best friend an idealistic human. Often together, their teaming makes one almost competent hero in most situations.

Name: Nexus6 (This is due to an unfortunate drinking incident back in the Guard after which he was convinced to get his name officially changed)
Rank: Ex-Colonel, former commander of the Pyronian 5th “Lummy Hunters” the remains of which were killed during an escape from a badger planet.
Division: FARTS
Race: Human
Age: It’s not polite to ask a lady his age. Okay late 20’s early 30’s.
Gender: Male
Nicknames: Nex . . . ‘Gitface’ to Grimmy.

Features: One hell of a sense of humour.

Gear: A wide and varied amount of tech that he regularly “borrows” from the FARTS armoury. And a Leather Trench coat when the mood takes him.

Likes: Unlocked doors, Petty larceny (Q Motor Pool), Knives, Fire, Explosives, Bar Maids…the list could go on for quite a while but you get the idea.

Hates: Badgers (well that’s the no brainer out the way), Security Systems, Space Marines (except Grey), The ominous *Click…*

Personal Bio:

Grimmy: For some reason, I imagine Nex as the type of guy who would go to a feminist conference and start telling lesbian jokes over the PA system.

Suffers from some rather disturbing mental problems, by human standards, after being the last survivor of the destruction of the Lummy Hunters and being forced to hide and fend for himself inside the Badger Empire for a long period of time before finally reuniting with the ABC. These do seem to mostly manifest as pyromania.

Name: Grey Painter
Rank: ABC Counsellor and keeper of shiny things and haribos. Also Grand Marshal of FARTS
Division: FARTS
Race: Bio-engineered human...space marine
Age: 125 seasons (Fenris seasons, I’ll let you work it out in years)
Gender: Male
Nicknames: Grey, Grey Hunter (for quite a period by a few people...saved my life more than once that one), Wolfman, Oi Stop That Bloody Singing.

Features: Blonde short cut hair, some battle scars criss-crossing face. Black wolf priest power armour covered in various wolf totems, necklaces and such and his ABC rank and insignia. Average height of about 8' for a marine.

Gear: Master crafted retractable lightning claws, plasma pistol and bolt pistol, Plasma Destruction Staff (Bing! B)) which works on several settings from stun up to full power via BBC 2. Various grenades and what ever he decides to take on the mission including a record collection banned by most war councils.

Likes: Singing, haribos, fighting, drinking, FARTS, ABC, ABC'ers, Fury (his drinking/fighting partner who some how has moved in on his ship).

Hates: People who wont let him sing (or at least try), Inquisitors, Badgers, Dark Angels, Thousand sons, other chaos, people who insist in killing his crew (*scowls at Nightchild*).

Personal Bio:

Grey is a true space wolf, born and brought up on Fenris and quickly scooped up by the Space Wolves because of his exceptional prowess amongst his clan.

His early life with the Wolves was not extremely exceptional though he had a habit of not dieing, which was handy. Late into his Bloodclaw years however he distinguished himself by single handily clearing a fortified bunker of badgers and was raised to the rank of Wolf Guard. After showing talent in leading wolf packs to accomplish spectacular and song worthy deeds on a regular basis and also managing to raise moral in the darkest times Grey was spotted by the wolf priests of the chapter and brought into their fold. Although most wolves who were present at the more spectacular successes claim they only did it to stop Grey singing.

After a few years in the priesthood Grey saw a plea for help from Lev, Grand Marshal of the ABC. Something made Grey realise the threat the badgers represented and so left the Space Wolves with the wolf lords permission to join the ABC.

Once he joined he was immediately swept up by Chump, commander of FARTS who instantly saw great strength and potential in the young wolf (or at least that’s what he told him. Grey maintained the believe that Chump just wanting someone to dump paper work on. Not that it worked.) placing him in as the 2nd in command of FARTS. After Chump turned himself into a toddler and some how disappeared from the ABC (you can't expect good child minding skills from a bunch of homicidal psychopaths) Grey was promoted to Grand Marshal of FARTS and has led them to great things.

A friendly figure, Grey has a habit of trying to help everyone he sees as needing help. Whether they what it or not. Always happy to have a joke and a drink and occasionally a brawl.

Name: Abramo
Rank: ///
Division: ///
Race: Human <<Non-Imperial Origin / Unrecognised World>>
Age: 28
Gender: Male

HOME: Mernos <<No Existing Records. Assumed to be beyond Imperial Borders>>

Features: Short brown hair with a white headband round his head. Wears a dusty brown coloured jacket with matching trousers and a lighter brown top underneath. Black boots.

Gear: Matt black Autopistol with vertical front grip <<Unknown Origin, presumably manufactured on Mernos>>, Bolt Pistol <<Pattern Recognised as Steel Angel>>, Sniper Rifle <<Patter Recognised as ABC Guard Issue>>.

Personal Bio:

Abramo was raised in the bottom of the largest Hive on a planet beyond Imperial Control called Mernos. It's location is unknown, but apparently consists of two planets, Mernos itself and a Penal Colony based on a moon that is mined for it's metals and other resources. It was during his childhood in the Hive that Abramo was forced to quickly learn survival skills or die as another faceless corpse in the wasteland (probably something to do with the face munching creatures but thats another story). He learnt many techniques for staying hidden and took learnt fast how to use and maintain a rifle since keeping as much distance between yourself and the horrors of his surroundings was noted as a very good idea!

It was when he reached 16 that he began to work his way up the hive, eventually culminating many years later in a powerful organisation that he rose to the leadership of. This organisation consisted of legitimate business, such as Death Mould harvesting to make expensive cigarettes and other less legitimate activities. By the time he hit 28, he had formed a massive criminal empire that influenced a large portion of the hive and was spreading to other places on the planet. It was then that some of his rivals became concerned and set up a sting operation on a fake assasination contract that saw his downfall and shipped off to the penal colony, his empire now taken over by his rivals and government authorities.

It was on his way to the penal colony that badger forces ambushed the prison ship, taking him prisoner and transferring him to the Vigilance base. Here he met the ABC and learnt that he held psychic talents which accounted for much of his ability to rapidly pick up survival training early in his life. As much as he yearns to return to Mernos, he knows he cannot as he is a wanted man on that planet, and besides, the badgers have prbably over-run it anyway.

Name: Leviathan
Rank: Exquisitor
Division: ABC Quisition
Race: Human
Age: 37
Gender: Male
Nicknames: Ah ****. Your had to ask: Lev, Lav, Levi, Levvy, Levvie, Leviathin, Leviathon, Laviathan, Levathon, Leviathingmajig, Leviathong, Nice-Guy-Levi, Leviabollok!, Levmon, Levster, Leviatomic, Levity and a whole crap more I can't be arsed to remember

Features: Around 6'' in height, thinly built, raven black cropped hair with touches of grey around the edges, hooded ice blue eyes, always a bit of stubble.

Gear: Usually wears a blue and grey Imperial navy uniform, usually with jump pants, occasionally wears full jump suit with leather flight jacket that has a red fur trim. Always seems to wear some kind of regalia linked to the Imperial Navy.

Likes: Flying Spaceship, Crashing Spaceships, Grimmy except when he's being a git, Kiao, The ABC, cheese savouries

Hates: Badgers, Going in the shower after Grimmy (he gets squiglets everywhere), Back seat drivers, Coffee machines (long story), People with 'Dragon Ball Z' haircuts, having a bad feeling something gonna happen.

Personal Bio:

Leviathan's past is shrouded, he rarely to never talks about it, despite the fact that his attire and excellent piloting skills nod towards him once being in the Imperial Navy. The circumstances as to why or how he left are yet unknown, even to the other ABCers.

Leviathan is one of the longest serving ABC members, along with Grimmy and nexus and has shown ability as a good leader amongst the rag-tag bunch of mishaps that are usually found in the organisation, despite the fact he has no super-freaky kick ass special powers to help him.

The human is usually quite the idealist, he is generally friendly and easy to talk to yet he shows no fear in throwing himself into battle, often seen fighting alongside his close and somewhat unusual comrade of Grimskull Gutslusher. The pair have gained a mutual understanding; one no Ork and Human has ever had that didn’t end in some kind of blood being spilt either way.

Recently the human has found a young protégé in that of an Orphaned Badger named Kiao whom he rescued after his father was slain and his honourable House destroyed by greed and revenge, although his relationship with the youngster so far has been less than straight and narrow.

Name: Kiao Bakotahl
Rank: None
Division: None
Race: Badger
Age: 8 (Badger Years). 13 (Terran Years)
Gender: Male
Nickname: None

Features: Black white and fury, this adolescent badger is everything you'd expect from the race except not yet fully grown. He is around 4ft tall and of quite a slender build, yet the noble features of his lineage are still there, especially in his grey-blue eyes which burning with an unerring passion.

Gear: With no surviving clothes from his personal wardrobe Kiao has taken to 'borrowing' a few of Leviathan's, albeit with modifications, such as crudely tearing away the bottoms of his jackets and using belts to tie up the excess bagginess of his other garb. Despite all this they still look several sizes too big for his tiny frame.

Likes: Honour, Fighting for a righteous cause, upholding the name of House Bakotahl, Leviathan.

Hates: Deceit, betrayal, Karmi, Ice cream, Leviathan.

Personal Bio:

Kiao was orphaned not so long ago.
Before the death of his father, Lord to the proud Badger House Bakotahl, he would follow him on campaigns to learn the ways of duty and honour his farther heartedly believed in, ways so few other badger Lords bother to uphold.
Lord Bakotahl, however, was killed in a siege of the ABC's headquarters in recent times. His life recklessly thrown away when a ranking general, a manipulating female badger named Karmi, ordered him to lead his troops in a suicidal attack of the ABC defences.

Kiao became Lord of his House that day, at such a young and unexpecting age.

Upon hearing that Karmi was responsible for his father's death, Kiao took out his furious anger upon her by ordering the troops of his House who were part of the attacking force to turn on Karmi and the rest of her forces. They were wiped out to a Badger in the process of reclaiming their honour but the move helped the ABC survive the siege and drive off the massive attacking army of Karmi.

Since then Kiao has been watched over by Leviathan, who rescued him from the clutches of a furious Karmi. With nothing left but his namesake, Kiao has ironically joined the ABC in the hope of one day exacting total revenge on Karmi for his father’s death.
He is still bitter that he is the last surviving member of his House and often takes out his angst on Leviathan who has increasing become a father figure to the boy.

Name: Inquisitor Koun
Rank: He’s an Inquisitor
Division: : I feel this question has already been answered.
Race: How many non-human Inquisitors do you know?
Age: A rather personal question, but if you had to guess, he looks like a 60 year old man.
Gender: Male
Nickname: None that you’re aware of. Give it time, I’m sure Nex or Kasen will think of something suitable.

Features: Old wrinkled man with grey hair, and steel blue eyes. Usually wears a grey cloak and dressed relatively conservatively. The Inquisitorial seal is visible as a button on the collar of his (grey) shirt. He’s always seen with a black and somewhat ornate walking stick. On his hip is holstered a needle pistol of unusual quality, though not as ornate as the stick. Usually flunkies in the form of Inquisitorial storm troopers are with him or nearby.

Gear: That’s above your security clearance, citizen.

Likes: Tea, a comfortable chair, and good conversation. He seems also to enjoy ordering people around with that Vox unit one of his flunkies always carries with him. It’s often said that he enjoys manipulating the affairs of other men (and women), playing some sick twisted game using their lives and souls as mere pieces. But generally it’s not polite to speak of such things within his hearing.

Hates: Incompetence and stupidity, even in his opponents.

Personal Bio:

Wouldn’t you like to know? But if you did try to find out you’d be proving that you’re a malcontent imperial citizen, just shy of being a traitor or heretic. And your not either of those, are you citizen?

Name: Tyra Nid
Rank: Tank Commander
Division: Independant
Race: Human
Age: Around 50 years old.
Gender: Male
Nicknames: Tyra,

Features: Shorter than average, as befits someone with a natural inclination for Tankin’. Beginning to go grey. Usually wears green Crew uniform, often dons a flak jacket when likely to get up close and personal. Has been known to wear full dress uniform when required. Non-skilled in infantry combat, relies on obscene luck to stay alive.

Gear: Personal Armament: Always carries ABC Standard-Issue Bolt Pistol, battered from years of service. Has been know to simultaneously use a laspistol or plasmapistol. Frag grendades. Power Knife. Flak jacket.
Other Armament: Access to the ABC Motor Pool. His pride and joy, a Baneblade super-heavy “Utilius Deon”, was destroyed in the Seige of the ABC homeworld, along with much of the ABCs military forces. Currently it is being salvaged at (whats left of) Q-Branch, but whether it will be anything like its old self when it leaves is unknown…

Likes: Tanks, Organisational Structure, not being killed.

Hates: The Imperium, Chaos.

Personal Bio:
Stage One-
Tyra originated from a farming world, where he had always dreamed of working with Tanks. When a nearby system became involved in an Orkish invasion, he had his chance to join the Guard. Starting only by servicing Leman Russ’, his natural aptitude with the massive beasts of war (along with many casualties in the War) led him to steadily rise to the position of Tank Commander. In one fierce battle, his unit was severely destroyed and while making a retreat the crew he had with him stumbled upon an empty Baneblade abandoned on the field of battle when its crew had met a grizzly fate. Surrounded by Ork hordes, Tyra led his ragtag crew into the vehicle and somehow managed to cut a swathe back to the Imperial base of operations. Unfortunately, his senior officers did not see this act as one of Heroism, but Traitorism. Sentenced to execution, Tyra barely made his escape to less reputable parts of the galaxy.

Stage Two-
Having found an inclination towards ordered military structure, Tyra became involved in mercenary work for many years. During this time he came into ownership of a Baneblade (with dubious origins) that he continued to use from then on. Eventually he heard of the ABC, and joined this for the militaristic opportunities rather than a particular hatred of Badgerkind.

Stage Three-
After one mission completed with the ABC, Tyra and his inherited ship The Toddy were lost in a Warp storm. For close to ten years he and the ships crew fought their way through a myriad of Chaotic worlds, lost to the Warp, in an attempt to arrive back in something resembling real space. Finally they got back to the ABC system, only to find that while they had aged ten years only a few months had passed back ‘home’.

Stage Four-
Currently under completion. Notable events: Baneblade being destroyed, The Toddy being infected and consumed by a metallic group-consciousness, closer relations with the Badger race by the ABC.

I just want you to know that I named my pet gorilla in WoW after you. ;) Lev told me a while back. Good to know you still think of me, no matter how retarded the method.

EDIT: Come to think of it, I think Freud would probably have a few things to say about that...

Grimskull Gutslusher
17-06-2005, 23:27
Likewise I'm sure you have your Grimskull Gutslusher bed cover and wallpaper.

EDIT: I don't believe Freud would have anything to say about it. Apart from your mother is a hairy gorilla. Did I just say that? Heh.


DOUBLE EDIT: There you go Hellgunner. Thy profile is up.

Grimskull Gutslusher
18-06-2005, 11:29
Indeed they are. Ergo the point of me saying a particularly banal one. :rolleyes: ;)

Still, at least it got you to publicly call me cool. :D


>>> Excellent, now you edited and my post doesn't make sense. Ah well. Stop being dramatic. I love you and there's a no-leaving clause in the fanclub. :p

Bruce Campbell?

Leviathan
18-06-2005, 20:53
Hello,

As in everything in life, it was only a matter of time before Bruce Campbell came into the equation.

Ask any scientist and he will tell you that they can answer any problem simply by sticking his name on the right side of the equals symbol.


And on that note.

Enough with the rubbish you spamn monkeys. :p

dark_wulf
19-06-2005, 17:21
Yes, stop spamming and play City of Heroes instead.

Wait, thats not going to help the thread, is it? :p

The revival of the ABC AoD Clan.
I'm in the Heavyweight AoD, as I notice is dark_wulf and Grey, I believe your helping with the organisation Setra (as am I , now thats ABC domination) and rollers are still allowed to enter.
Anyone else joined it? Anyone else want to make the longest running piece of Portent History make it's mark outside the little area where RPGs are shut away now?

I'm just away to bed so I don't have time to put the Clan thread up now though. :p

Mine or Setra's ... I can see mine but Setra's is a link to me.
Noticed a few other people with the same thing.

I think it might depend on what forum skin your using or something like that.
I'm using the Portent one, good old crimson and black, I can see yours fine...I can see everyone here's except Setra's.

Oh dear god, you're colour blind? :(

:D

I can see yours, but Nex's is indeed a text link.

Lord Setra
24-06-2005, 16:14
Yeah I can see yours as well, and Nex is a text link to me as well.

grey_painter
24-06-2005, 18:29
I'm using the blue and black one too, I like it very subtle.

But I can't see Nex's avatar either, can see Lord Setra's though.

Well it's not that I just played about with my settings.
How very odd.

Time to go and look at the Forum Help section.

Hello,

I don't touch the other scheme options.

I like my eyes not to bleed.

Anyways- I'll type up an update today and post it and try and get a post I've been working on up to tommorow. Sorry for my lack of action this week but work placement has defeated my free time this week and most likely next week as well.

That and WoW.

Hello,

Here it is, as promised. Tried to keep it as short as I can without omitting any major details.

Read it incase you've forgotten just what the hell is going on.


++++THE STORY SO FAR++++

It all started with the Abduction of Fury by a mysterious and shadowy Badger Organisation known as ‘The Vigilance.’

The Search for their estranged firend led the ABC to several places, namely to a secret Vigilance facility where they discovered the loose details of a secret plot by members of the Vigilance, Namely a Captain Named Odivaykaar, to utilise a vessel from the badger’s distant past- A ship whose cyogenic- Hybernation units contain but a single passenger, an ancestor from millennia ago frozen in time, drifting lost amongst the stars in this vessel, known as ‘The Zyas-Wor’ until it was discovered and utilised by the vigilance headed by Odivaykaar.

Meanwhile, elsewhere, other members of the ABC discover evidence that point to the fact that the Badgers of this vigilance or stealing arcane and ancient technology, namely that used in stasis units.

The ABC gather together everything they have found in hope that this insidious plot they have incovered will somehow lead them to the still missing Fury.

Fury however is being put to good use. The nefarious Oivaykaar has brain washed the poor Q Branch genius to thinking that he works for the badgers and he has been put to work on a project to utalise the stolen stasis technology in order to revive the ancient badger trapped inside the cryo-unit aboard the Zyas-wor.

Meanwhile the ABC piece together their information to capture a shot of the bigger picture. It appears that this Odivaykaar has schemed even within the confines of his own organisation. He has lied to his own superiors and instigated the infection of Badger worlds with an incurable virus that he is using as a cover to keep custody of the Zyas-wor in the false-hope of reviving the ancient and finding a possible genetic cure the disease he has created.
The real reason why he’d go to such measures to keep a hold of the frozen ancient are yet un clear to the ABC but it soon becomes clear that the fiend has tied up the ABC with false evidence that places the cause of the viral outbreak on the Badger colonies as their doing!

Astounded by this- the ABC return home but find themselves suddenly in the grips of a surprise attack. The ABC desperately struggle against their own vending machines and appliances as an Evil Techno-shaman controlled by Odivaykaar infiltrates the ABC H.Q and spreads his vile technological influence about it. This is only a distraction though as Fury and a Vigilance strike team break into Q branch to steal much needed components for their masters devious plans.

Although the Shaman is expelled, Q branch is destroyed and the Badgers escape with all they need.
Fortunately the ABC manage to sneak a tracking device aboard ‘The Zyas-Wor’ as they make their get-away and they set off in pursuit aboard ‘The Bloody Rose’

With everything they need, it does not take the clever Fury long to repair the Cryo unit and release the Ancestor from her frozen prison.
It is quickly revealed that this Badger is Anisha, a former member of the ships crew who, thousands of years earlier, tried to avert a civil war amongst her-own people by stealing a ship of awesome and terrible power and hiding it away before exiling herself aboard the Zyas-Wor and hiding in the cold depths of space.
It is clear enough that Odivaykaar knew this all along, through secret logs recorded by the Badger that he has kept hidden from everyone else in the Vigilance and studied for his own end.
An end about to be fulfilled since he soon finds out from the Female Badger where she has hidden the vessel, lieing to her that the Badger empire is not what it once was and that it needs such advanced and forgotten weapons to fight alien influence. Although this is partly true, he lies about the nature of the Empire as it is, making it out to be a virtuous and united body when it is in reality not.

He finds the vessel, hidden in a violent nebular, but is unaware the ABC is not far behind.

The vessels name is Warmaker and it does not take Odivaykaar and his now prize Anisha board and re-activate the ship, where-upon the AI, trapped for eons within it’s own programming, to exact his revenge on the one who put him there: Anisha. Shortly afterwards the A.I swears allegiance to Odivaykaar and it is all revealed that the ship is actually a gigantic factory vessel, capable of producing scores of relic Badger vessels of lost design that could easily restore power to the Empire should they be constructed.

Unfortunatly for Odivaykaar, it does not all go to plan. The ABC have managed to get their way aboard and are in the process of finding out what this ship is, resting control of it from Odivaykaar and regaining the beleaguered Fury.

The A.I is not willing to give up without a fight, however and neither is Odivaykaar. The scene is set for a cataclysmic final battle aboard the vessel. Who will gain control? Can the A.I be removed from its position of power? Can the ABCers find and convince Fury of his true allegiances? Can the ABC clear their names? Where is my Sandwich?


All will be revealed in the concluding part of ABC: ‘Warmaker’

*Cue Titles*

That's that. If you need to know I'll tell you exactly where your character is and what he was doing if you ask.

Hello,

I dunno why but my mind kind of glossed over the whole hentai-tenticle pr0n incident. :p

Thankyou for allowing it to resurface.

*schedules more therapy*

Thanks for all posting guys, glad to see your all still here in some respect and actually know what the hell you're doing also. :p

Lets keep going.

Lev, Nex, Grimmy, Kiao and I are making a B-line for the bridge for anyone who wishes to join.

If you don't wanna do that there are still afew badgers in those killer suits on the loose, aswell as Zyas-Wor still in dock.

That or you can make some fun trouble for yourself. Just imagine what a half-mad and now derranged self- fabricating space-ship could make for your killing pleasure...

Errr....right. Leviathan, could you possibly get onto MSN? I'd simply love to re-join the aBC. Differnt character and concept, but it's all fleshed out. Just need to talk with you or Grim as per the first page's instructions.

Well, I've grown tired of waiting. Here's the rough character concept. This may be fleshed out more, but feel free to offer suggestions or critiques. Or tell me what's going on right this moment.

Name: Tech Priest Adept Malachai
Rank: Techpriest Enginseer
Division: Adeptus Mechanicus envoy to ABC
Race: Human. C'mon.
Age: Unknown. But version 3.0!
Gender: Does that even apply to techpriests? Male, if so.
Nicknames: Waiting to be devised by those deviants in the ABC.

Features: He's a *******' techpriest enginseer! Long robe, hooded face, bionics, one of those big claw servo arms. Anything you can think of Ad-Mech related. And one of those cool Ad-mech gear symbols on his shoulder. On the armor underneath the cloak.

Gear: Modified Adeptus Mechanicus battlefield issue armor, big grabby servo arm, auspex, power axe, standard Ad Mech issue bolt pistol, signum, various servitors of all types. These range from technical servitors to gun servitors equipped with a variety of weapons (standard and not so) to combat servitors equipped with an even greater variety of close combat weaponry.

Likes: STC templates, forbidden and long lost knowledge (Ooooo.....spooky), technological challenges, logic, factual discourse, engine oil
(Don't ask.)

Hates: Broken machinery, possessed technology, Khornite electric shavers (Long story. No need to ask), creatures who act based on feeling, not logic. So.....basically all the ruinous powers, orks, some chapters of Space Marines, most humans, Dark Eldar, the Ecclesiarcy. Pretty much everyone.

Personal Bio: Classfied as per standard orders of Adeptus Mechanicus. Detached from 17th Mordian to aid ABC in light of the loss of much
of their gear and scientific knowledge with the loss of Q branch.

Hello All.

This is Inquisitor Koun. Don't ask why I have a new user name, those who question the new user name will be labeled heretics and traitors. And then all sorts of unpleasant things would happen to you; people would call you names, steal your parking spots and your lunch money, and then maybe burn you at the stake.

You wouldn't want that, now would you citizen?

Suffice it to say, I'll have a post up relatively soon. I'll try and keep things interesting.

G'day all! 'Tis I, Mika, back again to post another spout of utter inaninty for the mere purpose of the activity itself. What does that mean for you, the humble viewer? Nothing! But it does mean I get to exert all the usual randomness that swirls about my psyche in a manner not unlike... you know... something that... swirls around a lot...

Mika'll do as he does most these days; avoid fisticuffs and... "help" people. :angel:

Hello,

Sam: I have no problems with that bio what-so-ever. Nice Work.

Infact, it's easily integratable into the current plot, so much so that you can jump right in!

Read the overview above and then the first pages of the new thread to get your bearings and then your character can come aboard WarMaker- with servitors in tow if you wish- to join whatever group you wish. Or simply to explroe if you like. WarMaker is a technological marvel that I'm sure that character would enjoy.

So jump right in!

Keep going everyone else, you're doing super. :)

Ah so your back on Porte.....Warseer

Well I am determined to spend as much work time as possible surfing the internet sooo I am going to inflict these 3 buggers on you again......

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++

On board the Bloody Rose (Some Hours before the event currently taking place in the RPG)

Cogitator Adept Texanius walked into the room and observed the 3 Alien’s.

Each was lost in their own little world having waited for an age to be inducted into the ABC’s.

The first of the Tau, a more stocky than usual specimen of that race, was intently tinkering with the innards of a Tau Pulse Rifle, a look of contented joy on its face as it removed components and refitted them.

The second member of the trio, a lot thinner than the first, was sitting cross legged upon a seat, eyes closed with its 3 fingered (and one thumbed) hands held out in front, palms up, obviously meditating, while the 3rd, a more extravagantly dressed and groomed Tau closely contemplated the large epic sweeping picture showing a Squadron of Cavalry breaking through Ork lines being led by none other than Lord Solar Macharius himself.

Texanius Blinked as his Cogitator whirled. He hated that picture; there were at least 307 inconsistencies in it not least of which were the fact that the Lord Solar hated Horse’s. The Cognitii walked into the room and all 3 of the Xenos turned and looked at him.

“You are the 3 Fire warriors wishing to join us?”

Said Texanius.

The 3 Tau looked at him uncomprehendingly for several seconds before looking at each other. The thinner of the 3 (the one who had been meditating suddenly looked around suddenly realisation dawning on his face)

“Oh err …you mean us…I mean…..Yes we are fire warriors…um I mean”

The Art lover stood up and smiled patiently, bowing slightly to the adept and began to talk in a soft sing song voice as he did so.

“Yes Sir we are ‘Ta’ro’cha’ - that’s is 3 minds with one purpose, and yes we are here in order to assist in purging the threat that is the Badger”

The robed adept considered them for several seconds.

“Yeeesssssss….but are you sure your fire warriors I mean – You”

He pointed at the stockier Tau who was holding the dismantled pulse Rifle (and now looking somewhat startled under the sudden scrutiny of the tech adept).

“If I didn’t know better I would say that you were a member of your ‘Earth’ Caste”

The Cognitii turned his robotic gaze upon the ‘meditator’.

“And you - If I did not know better I would say that you resemble one of you Ethereal Caste….and you…”

The ‘art lover’ moved forwards smiling amiably and put one arm around the Adepts shoulder in a comradely sort of gesture.

“Come now sir an Earth caste?....an Ethereal?....and what were you going to say….me….a member of the Water caste?….Ha-ha what a fine wit you have sir…no, no I assure you we are all three members of the fire caste…born and bred”

The Adept considered him for a moment and then conceded the point with an embarrised slump of his shoulders.

“You are right of course….what a ridicules notion….my apologies to you all and welcome to the ABC”

The 3 Tau nodded politely and the Adept walked out of the room…….

…..and then all 3 breathed out with a sense of great sagging relief as the doors cycled shut.

“I thought he had us pegged for sure”

Said the ‘tinkerer’.

“Well what ever he thought were home and dry now”

Said the Art lover looking over at the Meditator.

“Well we all wanted desperately to be Fire warriors now here at last is our chance”

Said the Ethereal, looking over at the Water caste negotiator and Earth caste Engineer.

Hello,

Ah, I remember those guys. Glad you still have interest in them, they are promising characters.

Like I said to Sam, As long as you're onboard the BR you can board onto Warmaker and join any group you like or wander-off on your own.

Just make sure you read the run-down on the other page and the first few pages of the thread to break into the flow.

Then just throw yourself in a go for it! Like Sam has.

Keep it goin people. We're hitting our stride again. ;)

Do what you want. Have fun and finish this the way you want.
Sieze the moment, grab the story by the balls and make it whatever you want to.


Within reason of course.

But otherwise go crazy.
You don't need me to run this place.

Huh?

What's that you say?
Shoe laces?


:p

O.K, I've neglected this place.
Sorry.

Is everyone still here?
Please do speak up if you're still alive.
hmmmm... maybe afew e-mails might help.

Despite my current addiction to WoW I'd much rather not drop The ABC to be honest, it is still very dear to my heart.
So come on peeps, who's still here?

*shoots the looter before he finds his way into my office*

I'm very slowly working on a long post to more or less tie up this little adventure. I'll try and finish it in the next few days. But don't let that stop anyone else from posting first, nothing I've written can't be changed and most of it hasn't been written yet.:)

Hello,

I'm just glad your doing something grey.

It's reassuring for me to think that you guys are still here and havn't forgotten about the ABC.

Still that's no excuse for me to neglect it in such a way.

If you ever need help finishing a mega post to finally execute this uscker of a plot line, then you know where my e-mail box is- I'd be happy to help out.

I'm sure Fury would be eager to pitch in too. *poke*


I'll pull myself back to it, I promise.

You never know- I may just drag Grimmy with me too :p

Stay free, where no walls divide you
You're free as the roaring tide
So there's no need to hide

Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
'cause you're born free

I think a little bit of the problem is we got to high maintinance, I know we can't return to the *DAKKA**DAKKA**DAKKA**DAKKA**click* days but...erm...well I've got a point here somewhere...lots of regular little posts with the odd epic when people feel like it and have the time would be better for motivation than feeling you have to do a 1000+ word post every day.
I know that would make me feel less pressured, and well it should be fun not pressuring.

Hello,

Seriously though, You can't rely on me to carry this any more. I think you've demonstrated that you don't really need me.

Of course I'm not saying I'm leaving but as you've seen I can't devote the time I once did to it any more. I'm back and I'll try to stick around but please don't rely on me to push this constantly. The ABC will suffer as a result.

You don't need me to just get on with it.

I thank all of you that have kept this alive in my abscence, especially Grey.

So lets get on with it shall we?

As some of you have suggested- short, snappy posts are the way to go, no need to scuff on the quality but the quantity is not required.
Short and stabby FTW.

Hopefully this will pick it up.
Now, time for me to add some in-put to this once again.

Glad to see you all again my friends.

grey_painter
14-06-2006, 17:23
It'd have to be a full clean start thread though I think if we are to attract both old ABC'ers and new members. Start the story more or less a fresh so no one is intimidated by a long story line they feel they have to read up on. Also we should probably continue to say the posts don't have to be as long or detailed as they were getting by the end of this run through.

I was thinking like a alternate universe. A world gone mad where the remainder of the Badger race is the only thing standing between the hot, female, evil ABC and galactic domination. Like a mirror world or something like that, except we're still all ourselves.

It could be crazy though... male Darkwind is already dangerously pretty...

grey_painter
14-07-2006, 10:25
I assume to attract people we are starting an obviously new thread for recruitment.

A time lapse of a few years will be fantastic for attracting new people, they wont have to feel they need to read up on alot of stuff. To be honest as part of the old guard I think a time lapse would refresh the thread for me too, assume all sorts of things happened in the mean time to change mine and everyones character to make it fresh. Not sure what though, might try making Grey cynical again.

neXus6
14-07-2006, 13:42
Yeah and I could make Nex a serious character all the time rather than once ever 2 years.

I'll also be initiating the time lapse in the ABC thread over the next few days, after that I'm sure you'll want to update your characters and give them that feeling of minty freshness we all love.

After that it's time for a new recruitment thread I guess.

I have posted this character before at the other ABC thread, but I might as well post him again here just to make sure.

Name: Tiberius Mallus
Rank: Puritian Inquisitor
Division: Ordo Malleus
Race: Inquisition
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Nicknames: Golden Guy, Goldie (both because of his armour colour), The Castigator (because of his sword) or Mallet Man (because of his surname).

Features: Short brown hair, brown eyes, muscular body and a cheeky personality.

Gear: Golden Emperor's Champion like artificier armour, a Guimoire of True Names, a hell of a huge sword called the "Castigator Blade" and a bolt pistol. He also has a golden hound-like familiar, a hardened Imperial Guard Veteran called Reterus carrying some important samples and his trusty Acolyte named Cirrus as his reutine. He also owns a squad of Grey Knights led by Justicar Ferriban.

Likes: Smashing deamons and their Chaos followers, of course! That's what Ordo Malleus Inquisitors do!

Hates: Chaos, Daemons, Badgers, especially ones that he thinks are doing daemonic work...

Personal Bio: Mallus is a badass Puritian Ordo Malleus Inquisitor you wouldn't want to pick on. With a trustworthy reutine and a squad of Grey Knights, a big anti-daemonic sword, and allied with the Ultramarines, this guy is a force to be reckoned with.

(By the way, I've got models for this guy and his reutine allied to my Ultramarines army.)

When's the next Badger invasion? Mallus wants to kick some daemonic badger ass!

*Mallus chops neXus6's head off.*
MALLUS: "Yep, that guy's definately deamonically possesed!"
CIRRUS & RETERUS: "Aye, sir. Too bad he ain't a badger, though."

More than a challenge, perhaps? Never mess with an Inquisitor. Especially an Ordo Malleus one. :evilgrin:

And here we have example a) Powergaming, no killing other peoples characters, you can take the **** as much as you want but killing is a no no.
:p

Like the real me would face down an =I= and retinue.

Erm, could you get me some coffee please, I like it with milk, there's a machine just down the hall.
:evilgrin:

*cue large explosion in the background*
*watchs a rather charred Inquisitor and body guard return from down the corridor*

And that is an example of what happens if one of these three things, killing a Veterans character, killing my character, going near a coffee machine, is done.

RETERUS: "WHERE THE HELL ARE THE BADGERS?!"

Geez, I didn't realise killing other people's characters is against the rules, if it was the rules. Sorry about that.

Anywho. We have more important business to attend to, namely the paddling of Lev for not posting his post he was going to post so we could post. Post post post. Yeah.

Let the pummeling of bottoms begin!

neXus6
02-08-2006, 04:41

It's okay Ven this is the out of character thread so it really doesn't matter who you kill.

Really the only rule the ABC has ever had is no abusing someone else character really badly.
You can have them acting in your posts, though personally I don't like doing that unless I really know the other character pretty well. But doing something that renders them unable to take part just spoils their fun.

So yeah have fun and try to make sure others have fun to and you can't really go wrong.

Woah that all sounded a bit serious...me being serious!
*Universe Implodes*

And remember this is as much about comedy as it is about war and seriousness. :p

MALLUS: "Yeah, time to kick Lev's ass for being possessed by the World of Warcrap daemon! Hehehe... Warcrap..."
RETERUS: "Are you sure Lev's a badger?"

Darkwind
09-08-2006, 05:01

As soon as someone finds Lev we're gonna need to find a bigger stick to hit him with. A really big stick. Possibly with nails in it. Wait...

Can you put a nail in a whippy stick?

Sorry, very hectic few weeks- just starting to settle into new things at work and online.

Keep eyes peeled on this thread for updates.

Oh and incidently, all character profiles you may have placed on the old thread on Portent are lost forever to the winds of time and spam I'm affraid.
So you'll have to either remember it or make a new one! ^^

Someone willing to summarize all the essential details so no one cocks up and puts mistakes into their IC posts?

Hello,

Ah, so nice to see such a good response straight off the bat.

To answer you first question SE; yes, your character may be anything you like. The ABC is made up of a bunch of rag-tag, half made, half insane, misfits. We've had inquisitors fighting alongside Chaos Sorcerers, Space Marines fighting with Orks and Tau standing shoulder to with vending machines.....yes that's right I said vending machine.

You can make it as whacky as you like, although that in itself is not a necessity. There is only one type of cannon in the ABC and that's the type we shoot stuff with.

To answer your next question, no you can't leave. The doors were sealed upon your entry.

Anyway, to distract you from that dire predicament please see below a template for you to use to post your character here in this thread. If you need help please refer to the first page for guide lines as well as examples of previous ABCer profiles.

Remember, the more I laugh at your profile the quicker your complimentary tea towel will arrive.

Once we have enough profiles I will fish the old thread from the depths of despair where it currently looms ominously, like some great beast from the abyss and errr....guess I'll post in it to get us all rollin' again.

I'll see if I can't poke some of the old guard with a stick to get them to come back for another go as well.

Edit: Also Highbiner (welcome back btw matey.) is right, I will also post a quick summary of what's what regarding the ABC here, although I wouldn't let that stop you from creating a profile - your character will start from the point assuming that he/she has just joined the ABC.

Rank: Tyrant Extra-ordnance-air.
Division: Umm... Foegorger tribe? Dat right, Pok?
Race: Ogre, durr.
Age: Umm... 1... 2... 3... Umm...
Gender: Bull!
Nicknames: Fatso, Big Guy, Fat ****

Features: He's a twelve foot tall pile of hunger, muscle, fat and anger. But mostly hunger.

Gear: A great big gut-plate, a giant magic slashy thing wot's good fer killin', more dangly wot-nots than yer aunt, Pok the (un)Luck-Gnoblar.

Likes: Eating, fighting, sleeping, killing badgers and eating.

Hates: Physical exercise, badgers, things smater than he is that have no right to be.

Personal Bio: Bolgrut was born in the Ogre Kingdoms in the eastern bit of the Warhammer world. He grew up fat and strong, eating all twenty of his siblings, his mother, and eventually his father, becoming Tyrant of his tribe, the Foegorgers. However, once he'd finished with his first feast, there wasn't actually a tribe for him to be Tyrant of. Hearing of some vile creatures called "baggers", Bolgrut defied both physics and Games Workshop IP to enter the dark far-future of the 41st Millenium, where everybody's fighting and most people have a headache.

He ate his way across the galaxy, winning in several eating competitions against Tyranid hive-fleets, he eventually reached an ABC recruitment centre. At first they said they'd met their annual applicant threshold, but soon changed their tune when Bolgrut ate the applicants, the clerk's family, the manager's family and the manager.

Now he waits, sleeping.

At least until he's sent against those strange "baggers".

Is he ok?

Name: Greg Schadenfreude
Rank: Private. Extremely so.
Division:
Race: Hrud (we think)
Age: 24,601
Gender: N/A
Nicknames: Stretch, shifty, weirdo

Features: Constantly changing.

Gear: Despite his frequent chages of form, Greg always carries a laser Pointer, a pointy stick and wears carapace armour built for someone two metres taller.

Likes: Iced Mochaccinos, Hot Pies, Musical Theatre.

Hates: AP4 weapons. The Fourth Wall.

Personal Bio: Due to GW canon constantly changing his form, Greg is a shapeshifter. Now while this power would normally make the world his plaything, he has absolutely no power over it whatsoever. The practical side of this is that, halfway through a firefight, he is liable to turn into a gigantic laser cannon (without batteries), a massive tank (without tracks), or a small rubber ducky (without rubber).

He recently lost his favourite pencil, and he suspects there were badgers nearby at the time. From that day forth, he swore to wipe the badgery menace from the face of the universe. Badgers beware, he's got the Fourth Wall, and he doesn't know how to use it!

Hello,

Aaaah, it's good to see some old faces round here again. Just knew some of you vets couldn't keep yourself away. It must be my wit and charm. :p

Good to see some new characters too. Happy with everything I've seen so far. The most important thing is that you make a character you sure you will enjoy playing.
Also, I'd like to point out you are not limited to just one character, you may have as many as you like. You may also decide to change characters at any point you wish.

I'm putting forward a start date for the revival of the 25th, that's just after Easter for all you egg eating bunny lovers out there. So please if there is anyone else who wants to join before we start/ amend there character then do so over the long weekend. Of course you may join once we've started- there ain't no restrictions.

I'd start us off sooner but I don't have mah net fully working at home at the moment so it'll have to be the 25th unless I am blessed by the ISP fairy over the weekend.

Until then keep chatting/ updating profiles here ect.

Hrmmm......wonder if I can't poke Grimmy with a stick and get him to come back. Who wants to place bets on if I can? :D

Ahoy there! I felt nostalgic just now and compelled myself to do a google search "Anti Badger Crusade ABC" and lo and behold, this thread has appeared! :D

I'm not sure if anyone remembers me, Portent was something I was a part of perhaps 4+ years ago? I'm not quite the little kid I was back then =P. In case you don't remember me, I'm sure some of you remember Chump (The Emperor's Champ). My long-time buddy and fellow 40k collector back in China. We've both since left to attend university. I know i recognize Grimm, Lev, Grey, and nexus6 from the good ol' ABC on Portent.

Anyhoo just thought I'd say hi! I'll let Chump in on this ABC revival. If I get around to it I might participate too with my good ol' Sniper :D

That said, does anyone by chance have a copy of the ABC thread originally on Portent? That would be amazing ^^
