Default 40k Choose Your Own Adventure.

A few years ago, myself and Torealis set out to create a Warhammer 40k gamebook.

The effort went strong for the first few weeks but wound up getting put to one side - never to be visited again.

With so many different things in the pipeline it's likely that it will never see the light of day so I've decided to open it up with a different format.

Basically what's going to happen is...

I post the setting and story, then you guys just post what you want to do out of the options.

The first option to hit 10 votes is activated and the story moves along. All combats will be worked out by myself with the results explained in the subtext before the next post.

Anyway, this is a WIP activity so we'll see how it goes. Section one is in the next post.


The plot in a nutshell...

A crack team of veteran guardsmen are sent behind enemy lines to take out a power shield generator on a rebellious planets surface. Once the shield is down, aerial bombardment can begin.


As it travels towards the DZ the aircraft is blown out of the sky by an AA gun.

The strong smell of aviation fuel, smoke and an anguished moan drags you back into consciousness. You're alive, relatively unharmed and lying on the moist ground beneath the jungle canopy. Sweat stings your cracked lips and your head pounds heavily. A muffled scream to the right catches your attention and you rise unsteadily to your feet looking for the source of the yelling.

Sgt Lokkin grimaces in agony, forcing a smile he raises his hand.
'This is it lad, end of the line for me- I'm fucked' he coughs blood between clenched teeth 'the missions screwed, didn't even make it to the DZ'.

You rush to his side and pull a medkit from your webbing. He spits on the floor, coating the ground with a foul mix of deep red blood and phlegm. Looking him over, he's a right fucking mess. A large piece of shrapnel is buried in his left leg and a glistening stump protrudes from the right knee surrounded by a rapidly widening pool of gore. His cheat is a web of cuts, slices and smashed ribs, you baulk at the sight of his heart beats visibly within the cavity.

'Save your supplies kid, I'm not gonna make it' you glance at the blood pumping from his leg, deep down you know he's right, a Space Marine would die with those wounds. It's actually amazing he's still alive.

'Hold on sarge, I'll have you fixed up in no time' you lie, tearing open the pack and scrambling inside for a field dressing. A token gesture, more for your own sanity than his wellbeing.

'Don't waste your time! grab the Demo Kit and get the fuck out of here, you don't wanna be here when they arrive, the mission must succeed!' Lokkin grips your arm with surprising strength 'You hear me Private? It must fucking succeed!'
You wrap the leg as best you can, apply a tourniquet and pass him his Laspistol.

'Hang in there, I'll radio in for orders.'
You hit transmit on the vox handpiece and smile as it crackles into life.
'Zero this is Echo Four Niner do you copy over'
Nothing.
'Zero this is Echo Four Niner do you copy over'
Again nothing, the shield must be blocking the signal. Cursing you turn back to the Sgt.
'Radio's down Sarge, I'll do a quick sweep of the area and move out'

'Don't worry bout me, get out there and fix this mess, they'll not take me alive' he taps the laspistol barrel against his skull.
'It's all on you now rookie' Lokkin grimaces 'the Emperor Protects'.

'The Emperor Protects' you respond, hoping deep down that he's on shift today.

You stand, towering over the sergeant for the first time in your military career and take stock of what's around, your pack and several supply crates are scattered about the crash site. You conduct a quick search of the area to confirm the death of your comrades and collect the explosive charge, GPS, additional provisions and the pilots combat shotgun.
A quick check of the GPS confirms your worst fears. 80 clicks...piece of cake right?
Taking one final look at the Sgt, you compose yourself and move off into the jungle. Time to shine son you think, time to shine...


A beaten track leads off to your left, off to the right you can just about make out a stream. Both lead West.

The track is likely used by the enemy.
