Night Of A Thousand Rebellions

Out of the "Frying Pan" and into the "What the Fuck is this shit?"

OK, so the last entry was’t as "brief as I thought it would be. These next couple should be…. hopefully.

The STP awakens inside their Chimera where they had been strapped in as the Arson lander departed the Dirge. The interior was an absolute mess as personal items, weapons, and vehicle components were strewn about everywhere. One by one the team regained consciousness except for Corporal Steher who appeared to have taken an extremely bad blow to the head and had obviously suffered a concussion as his pupils were dilating at non matching diameters, his heartbeat was irregular, and his head began to swell. When they exited the Chimera the discovered that the lander was sitting stationary within gravity but at an odd angle, with the nose of the craft angled downward at a more than precarious angle. The lander was obviously damaged to an extreme as a large hole in the Hull could be seen and the Chimeras that had been held in the section had been thrown about like rag dolls and were now either jammed in between bulkhead exits of embedded in the walls of the superstructure. The STP had no choice but to utilize the large hole to make their escape. Upon existing the found that the Lander was embedded in what appears to be a Hive. The Team would not put things together entirely until later but what had occurred outside of their purview was the Pride had engaged its Warp engine as planned, The Dirge had been severely Damaged as a result. Though not completely destroyed the Hulk broke into dozens and dozens of fractured and sputtering structures. The Force of the rendering had been so great that on of these structures had struck the Lander a glancing blow. But being struck a glancing blow by what was still by comparison a city sized object was more than enough to knock the lander off course and to Damage its systems. The Naval Pilot were able to maintain a semblance of control and attempted to guide the Lander toward the last known location of the remaining Army Group that was planet side.The efforts were questionably successful. The Pilots were able to get the Lander aimed at the proper General area but the Lander was still badly damaged and impossible to control properly and so rather than making planet fall at the Army Group location the Arson made what would have been from an antagonistic point of view a comical “nose dive” into the Hive itself driving head first through layer after layer of the Hive like a Massive bullet into an even more massive beast. As the Lander tore its way into the Structure the Command deck where the crew and Pilots was shorn from the rest of the structure and the hull was irreparably damaged.

The STP made their way to the first level they could find which was a short distance above their current perch. With only a few stumbles and light injury the team was able to make it safely to level ground. The level was not just surprisingly deserted for a Hive but in fact appeared to be devoid of any life. The streets were full of refuse, abandoned vehicles, and the sporadic signs of fighting. Though the fighting could have simply been gang conflicts. A makeshift litter was constructed to transport the Injured Corporal and the team began to make their way as best they could down the lane in an attempt to find assistance or to find a Lift that would allow them to seek the nose of the Lander where they presumed that any other survivors may be.

Along the route they began to here an odd sound that could only be describes ad clicking or “gibbering”. The source was not readily apparent but shortly became obvious. After the team shot and killed a strange man who was dressed in nothing more than torn clothing and staring at them from the sidewalk, who was also emitting the “gibbering” noise there appeared dozens more like him. The team was assaulted by wave after wave of these nearly mindless but violent people. Their actions seem to not be led by any sense other than to cause violence on those not like them. The team layed into the enemy with every asset they possessed and though laying many of them down were not able to keep up with the massed attack and were shortly over come and struggled in hand to hand combat. The men were within seconds of being brought down in their entirety when on the high ground to the groups right a large number of armed men appeared and began to open fire on the mob of attackers. This final act saved what remained of the STP though there were losses. The Medic Trooper Gil Messick was beaten well beyond dead and his face was unrecognizable in the end, Trooper Benge Figgus the Ratling Sniper had bravely but in the end foolishly come to the aid of a team mate and engaged a group of the mob in hand to hand. The result was Trooper Figgus being disemboweled and literally torn limb from limb. corporal Steher survived by a miracle of the Emperor and the fortune of having still been wearing his Carapace Armor. He had unconsciously endure what could be described as the “curb stomping of the millenia” and barely survived.

They rescuers ordered the team to surrender their arms. They did so and were bound, hooded, and led to a structure where they were placed into confinement. Trooper Golbar requested access to the remains of their team mates so he could conduct the Rite of the Emperor’s Benediction and the men guarding them seemed surprisingly friendly to the idea and allowed it (under guard of course). They found that they were being held by a Hive Gang called the Cyanide Tide and were awaiting the arrival of the Gang Leader one Kerban Fent……..
