    One thing I'm left wondering is, just what could that great Hulking man-golem thing that was apparently serving the Magos and also leading one side of the fight in the Evidence Warehouse could have been.

    Some kind of extra spiffy heavy combat servitor that was being remote operated by the Magos in an unusual display of awareness of morale and leadership by a cogboy?

    Some kind of Space Marine sized cousin of the Cherubim?

    Some kind of gene-enhanced individual that's not related to the Space Marine form of gene-enhancement?

    Greg Sargent is an Interrogator, not an Inquisitor, which means that he basically has a limited, trainee Rosette, like all of the other Inquisitors-in-training that they had been farmed out to up until Sarge's promotion.

    Just how many wounds did that Daemonid have? Seriously, that thing took a ridiculous amount of punishment.
    I, too, greatly enjoyed the Sock Puppets, as well as the twist about the Diplomat. Helped explain why he was so eager to get Sarge back into his How to Talk to People without putting your foot in your mouth lessons, too.

    The next chapter is a big return to the whole "We hate our boss, and this job, we don't want to be here" theme.
    I figured either the entire group was laughing or really confused about where the GM was trying to go with that one.

    Ooo, that'll be fun.

    Sarge is an Interrogator, which pretty much means he's Inquisitor Oak's personal minion and can act with Oak's authority on certain matters. He gets a little junior-Inquisition member rosette (I imagine this as a brightly colored plastic version, possibly with training wheels).

    The man we just encountered (let's call him Scissy) is a full Inquisitor, though a very junior one (his sort of final exam as an Interrogator was the whole psyker business with the party). So basically as an Inquisitor Scissy outranks Sarge, but since Sarge is Oak's personal minion, the Inquisitor can't really boss him around too much without starting a pissing match. Of course this whole delicate relationship immediately gets thrown out the windows because Oak just cut Sarge and the party orders to go with Scissy and do whatever the bossy little Inquisitors tells him to do.

    In case I decide not to fully explain it in the next chapter for pacing reasons, the Magos likes to grow and flesh-craft humanoid monstrosities. Sometimes their design is based on xenos patterns, sometimes they're based on his own theories, but they're universally made from human-descended genetic material and lack sentience. The Magos refers to them as his "Meat Puppets".

    The Magos is nuts.

    Well, that's one way to deal with the biomass left by people who are too far gone to be lobotomized into servitors or too inedible to be recycled as food, I suppose.

    All magos are crazy, but I'd say that's an interesting spin on it. I suppose that would be one way to get around the restrictions on things like war robots, too.

    But then I've always been fond of minionmancy, so my perspective is probably pretty whacked to begin with.

    So...I haven't read this yet or looked at the link but wanted to post a thought.


    Would an all guardsmen party be like a medieval version of Cops ( or Cop show )? XD

    It would theoretically have some interesting campaign value if the DM was creative or writer...

    What do you think?

    That's not where this goes at all. Although that is what I thought it was going to be at first as well before I read it. I was wrong.

    It would be an interesting campaign concept. A chance to look at a different part of an adventures world. Actually now I see the party making fun all the adventurers that wonder through town.

    You guys are playing make believe wrong.

    78% of DMs started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    My first adventure started as a continuation of another's person's adventure. The party stepped into a room that was trapped with some gates which teleported them into another plane.

    What do you think?
    Doesn't really have much interaction with adventurers, but Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett is probably of interest to you, along with several of the subsequent novels covering the Ankh-Morpork City Watch.

    Also, you should totally read through the archives if you haven't already by now.

    I've seriously considered converting the prologue to fantasy. "Everyone build a hundred zero-level commoners. OK, now you're all drafted into the King's Army, off to the Orc-front with you!"

    New episode just came out by the way, or ten percent of one anyway. Dunno what the team's mission is yet, but it sounds like they will be back to their roots for a while!

    Just read the partial post on the official site. I really gotta say, the players involved must have the patience of saints considering what has been thrown at them. Almost as if it were a job in fact.

    So, after several days (and one or two very long nights) of reading this campaign journal with almost every scrap of free time I could pull together, all I have to say is that... I'm floored. This journal is extremely well written and I've enjoyed all of the time I've spent on it thus far. I just wanted to drop a message of encouragement for the author. Keep up the good work, dude. This is phenominal


    (as a sidenote, I'm hyped beyond belief for the 18th)

    Well thank-you for continuing the journal. I actually was inspired by this to make a campaign log of one of my group's campaigns. ... Let's just say that my respect for your work, which was already pretty high, has reached new heights.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go get some things done before my willpower runs out.

    There are 1.5 chapters and an epilogue left. We'll see how it breaks up, but I'm anticipating 3-4 more postings before the end.

    I've been worrying about having power on the short vacation I'm about to leave on. Not because I still have to arrange moving to another country in a little over a month, but because I really want read more guardsmen tales.

    Hah, wonderful. I managed to see the twist about the Demonhost coming from your writing, and I'm curious as to what point the party were able to work it out. Was it the moment that you've written? Or was it earlier?
