Hey all. The Newcomer Triva Game is back again.

Round II

It's designed for new people to the game to get some knowledge. If you want to be hard then go the normal game. But be warned that place is evil:wink: If you need help on what sort of level the questions should be or just need ideas - here is the previous round:

http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2305

Previous Winners are:

Round 1 - Wrath Of Khaine
Round 2 - ???????????????

One person asks a question (obviously it has to be 40k related), then the next poster tries to answer it. If the original poster verifies the answer correct then the answerer gets to ask the next question. Every question you answer correctly is worth one point, and I'll record everyones' scores in this post. If you don't verify other people's answer to your question right or wrong for 24 hours or don't ask a question after you've been verified correct for 24 hours someone else can ask a new question. If no-one can answer your question correctly for three days then you can ask a new question. The winner is the person with highest score at the end of the month! There are also awards that you can get by doing certain things, they are listed below.

Awards:

+=The Dominator award: Answer 3 or more questions in a row.
*=The Speed Demon Award: Answer a question within five minutes of it being posted.

- Scores -

cerrakoth: 5

>>>>>>This round will end at the end of the month. Good luck to all.<<<<<<<

The first question is: What are the three main Ordo's of the Inquistion?

Malleus, Hereticus, Xenos.

Those are the ONLY Ordos, not just the main ones. The Ordo Malleus handles the physical manefestation of the daemonic, the Ordo Hereticus handles treason within the Imperium (whether actual treason, spiritual corruption, unsanctioned witchcraft, etc.), and the Ordo Xenos deals with alien influence on Imperial populations, as well as dealing specifically with tactics and techniques for combating unique and unconventional alien threats.

Subordinate to the Major Ordos are several smaller organisations, known as the Ordos Minoris. These 'minor Ordos' are significantly smaller than the main three, and are often formed to combat specific, rather than broad, threats:

The Ordo Sicarius is tasked with investigating and controlling the Officio Assassinorum.
The Ordo Militum has the duty of monitoring the Imperium's military bodies, such the Imperial Guard, the Imperial Navy, the Commisariat, the Adeptus Psykana, the Adeptus Astartes (although see below), and - together with the Ordo Hereticus - the Adeptus Sororitas.
The Ordo Sepulturum is one of the smallest of the Ordos Minoris, formed during the 13th Black Crusade. Their focus is the relatively new threat from Plague Zombies.
The Ordo Obsuletus is another Ordo, dedicated, seemingly, to mysteries such as the appearances of Legion of the Damned and the reappearances of Lord Varlak after his incineration (Korsk II, then on Necromunda, and on Vanor XXI). Mentioned in White Dwarf.
A fifth minor order, whose name is unknown, develops methods to limit the independence of the Adeptus Astartes. It was founded during the Horus Heresy and has since been almost forgotten. They were mentioned in the Space Wolf novel "Wolfblade", where the assassin Xenothan used a poison made from the first blossoms of the Mecurian Swamp Orchid that could temporarily paralyze Space Marines. It worked by disrupting and confusing the Marines' genetically engineered poison-neutralizing gland, effectively turning it into a weapon against the Marine. Note that, as the aforementioned Ordo Militum is a relatively early and little-used aspect of the Inquisition (in terms of background), this could be a reference to it.

The Son Of Horus is correct in naming the 3 main ordo's and thus gets the point. However Bishop is right about the minor orders. You've even included some that I didn't know about. Nice stuff.

Your q Son

The Chapter from which the new chapter's original gene-seed is derived, such as with the 2nd foundings after the Heresey.

Example - the Imperial fists are the Primogenetor chapter of the Crimson Fists and the Black Templar.

Well for offices we have:

Adaptus Terra: Ruler of the Great Priesthood of Earth
The Ministorum: Guiding the spiritual Instruction of Mankind
Adeptus Mechanicus: Lords of Mars
Astropathicus: Voice of the Astropaths
Astronomican: Because psychers dont willingly commit suicide for the Astronomican
High Lord of the Fleet Militant: In charge of all 4 Battlefleets
The Administratum: The "office workers" of the Imperium

but; there are 12 High Lords of Terra; confirmed personnel are at least 1 Adeptus Mechanicus, 1 Astropath, the High Lord of the Fleet militant, High Govenor of the Imperial Guard, at least 1 Inquisitor, and assumed at least 1 Adeptus Astartes (some have rumored that it is Garro formerly of the Death Guard who not psycher himself could not have been a Grey Knight). Those are the only ones I can remeber..

I said seven since I was going by the old Rt list, but now I can't find my Rt book :(

Still, given all the new fluff, you came close Bishop, you just missed one...

I'm probably not paying enough attention and can't find the book I was looking for, and the current rulebook only lists four, so I'll give it to you on good effort. But you were forgetting the MIB...

Aka the Grand Marshal of the Adeptus Arbites.

So point to you Bishop... but if anyone has a RT copy handy, let me know.

I grabbed my answeres from the 3rd Edition Rule Book and they didnt really list them as offices of the High Lords but as offices underneath or answereing to the High Lords so I wasnt for sure they were the offices you were asking for.

Heres my question for yall if you still deem me worthy of asking...

How many successor chapters did the Salamanders create during the Second Founding??
