This is only my second attempt at writing 40k Fiction, so im still ironing out all the kinks in my style
I got inspritation for this while i was reading a thread about the lack of Necron Fiction out there. It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing that i wanted to get down before i forgot it. In other words, dont be too harsh please!
This is just the Opening - a few paragraphs about the event leading up to the main plot.
Hope you enjoy!
The flight crew of the Emperor Class Battleship, Divine Right
watched as another salvo from its Dorsal and Prow Weapons Batteries slammed into the Ork Space Hulk, designated Alpha432 by the ships navigational computers, but known as Mean Green by the men. This huge space-faring rock, bristling with stolen and modified weapons, and teeming with uncountable Orks had already destroyed the two Imperial Gothic Class Cruisers, Dauntless
and Incendia Imperatoris
, and the multiple Frigates and Destroyers that had been assigned to the Divine Right
. But now it was crippled. Its defeat was inevitable, and the crew of the Battleship knew it. But there was little cheer from the men; there had been too many deaths that day. Even as the final blow struck, completely removing the massive engines, the tall figure in the centre of the main viewing deck allowed himself only a brief, grim smile. Finally the leviathan was being dragged down by the gravity of the planet they had been fighting above. Within minutes, it was nothing but a colossal ball of burning debris.
Captain Jacob S'Edris (Thanks Commissar Ploss)
turned, and sighed. The Ork scum around these systems were growing restless. At the moment it was just single Hulks, formed in order to gather followers from neighbouring planets. But this latest victory has proven that they were getting bolder, building bigger and more powerful ships. This had all the signs of an impending WAAAGH, but he had no idea where from. All the other planets in this system had shown no signs of life. With no other leads to follow, the Divine Right
began the long slow march back to Hydraphur, and safer skies.
I just need three things from you guys!:
1) What do you think, obviously.
2) What it the second name of Captain Jacom of the Divine Right
3) Im in desperate need of a title.
Whoever comes up with the best title will gain my undying thanks...and maybe some rep on the side
The basic plot goes like this:
- Space Hulk crashes on dead planet.
- Spores are released from all the dead Orks.
- Decades later, tribes have sprung up all over the planet.
- One Warboss (or Big Mek) gains supremecey(sp).
- They unite some of the tribes, and go to salvage the Hulk.
- But the crash has penetrated the heart of an undiscovered Necron Tomb
- .......Ill let you know
Thanks for any and all help guys!
