[The Changebringer, Prophet of Ce'sorekxl'Fer'shaksin the Everlasting, emerged from a portal of warpfire to battle alongside his master.

Dozens of gnashing mouths snapped hungrily and bolts of purple fire emerged from thin air. The Changebringer attempted to shield his master from danger, but quickly realized that the emergence came too late to mend the broken path of time that would lead to the destruction of them both.

With violent hatred, the Changebringer uttered a single word.]

"Kor'O, this is Shas'vre B'kais. My XV86 team and others have successfully neutralised the daemonic presence around the bridge, and the repair drones have completed basic repairs to the viewport. It is now safe to enter the bridge again."

Excellent work Shas'vre. I want double the amount of security on the bridge from now on. And close the armoured shutters on the main forward viewport, we can't risk that glass breaking. We'll have to rely on sensor and monitor information for the time being. All available strike craft, this is K-42. Enemy leader positively identified, bring as much firepower as you can on it. Hit that son of a Krootox as hard as you can!


"Kor'O, this is Kor'vre B'aloh, I'm vectoring to the library now. There are a few openings in the interior, I might just be able to land a shot or two through. Wish me luck!"

"Come on Kor'vre, you got lucky once, I give you that, but you won't get a warhead through this time."

"You keep saying that Kor'ui, whatever gives you hope."

With a soundless flash, a pair of high-yield seeker missiles leapt from the underside of B'aloh's barracuda. The two firey lances plunged through the torn ceiling, missing the two titanic daemon lords but detonating right in the midst of the unholy choir. Countless cultists and zombies were shattered by the blasts.

"What did I tell you, Kor'ui, lighting does strike twice. You really need to have a bit more faith sometimes."

Bathed in the fire of the young races technologies.. bitten by a thousand gnats.. feather dimmed, his crawing song rasped out.. the light from the beacon faded.. his last trusted herald died under fusion fire.. he was along fending off these taulings.. how had it come to this..?]

NO...awkk...not the beacon.. MASTER!! Come forth.. now...please...?

[The Changebringer shielded him, it was a lone defiant act.. the attack had become a fight for survival.. the beacon was everything!! Tzchael pushed hard and slid out from under the war machine, feathers and sinew whisping away as fire struck him.. almost pushing him toward the beacon like a stiff wind..]

Tzchael wrote:[The chanting grew, despite eruptions amongst the undead choir, Tzchael turned twice and sung a song to infuse the incantation.. it was very close, these meddling taulings.. a blast clipped his wing proper.. the pain was thrilling and frustrating.. they were wearing down his abilities to protect against weapons of such physical power]

FASTER..CHANT FASTER!!

[He batted aside an XV8 like a rag doll, but in doing so collected the RipTide he had charged - bodily they embraced, fio tak slamming into iridescent feathers]


SQUAWKKAarrrkk.. In the changes cause...! Urggh.. HEAVY!?


[He pushed upward, seaking relent from the bipedal robotic mass]


As his hand caught the creature, the tau shouted in fury. Part of him felt satisfaction to know that to a degree he was crushing something vital to it. As he angled his prey so that the massive battlesuit had it's full baring upon his foe. Nova reactor charged into the shields the repulsive force began to show while he prepared ejection systems. To be sure. Suddenly he activated his thrusters. The creature made noise. He did not like it's noise. He was going to silence it. The thrusters caused the ground to shake and tremor with intense pressure while the colossal battlesuit strangled it's foe. His words were filled with hate, and calculated decision. His missile drones began to open fire once more on the ritualistic daemons while the battlesuit's systems groaned from the insane pressures inflicted. His shields were charged to such degree that little registered to him save obliterating his foe.

"For the cause of the greater good! DIE DEMON!"

It slipped out however, causing a massive impact as the suit punched the ground. Raising his arms with guns to bare now on both daemons his cannons opened fire as the missiles opened loose. He was not willing to allow his foe the privilege of life.

There, the false Aun lies before me, I should kill it, it would not be the first time..almost the fugue state starts to seep in, my memories lose coehesion, but another voice speaks, the Lance I wield, its hunger is evident, snaps me back.
''let those who follow the dark gods fall beneath my blade, it is my purpose child of fire, don't let this creature beat you with its lies''

I drop my flamer, and instead raise the Lance to the creatures throat.. '' you will die false aun, and your god cannot save you from this, and your lies cannot break a broken mind'' I thrust down with all the strength I can muster..

[Fighting the war machines grip Tzchael wrenched away harshly - tearing an incorporeal severed wrist from the monsters grip... stumbling to the beacon]

MASTER! I see you !..

[Tzchael reached into the glowing nimbus]

You are all Fools...FOOLSSSSssss!!

[Suddenly a shadowy form leaned out from the warp conflaguration.. its maw like beak larger than the Riptides forearm that reached again for Tzchael; the being spoke -]

I Have come...

The power of Chaos was waning. The False Aun knew that he would not return from this death. As the Shas'o's blade falls down, Aun Tier whispered once more to his silencer.

"Death. The ultimate Change."

The Lance struck; and the Daemonic imposter fell as a pile of dust. The False Ethereal was no more...
Truth was flame against a sleeping lake of petrol.

[The Changebringer reeled from the battlesuit's blow and smashed hard into a previously pristine ceramic wall.]

The Master arrives.

[A laugh, spit from a thousand convulsing orifices, was cut sickeningly short in a brilliant volley of plasma and missiles from the enormous battlesuit.

The Changebringer's physical form disintegrated in blue fire, his soul cast back into the warp to once again await his Master's call.]

SITC team Storytale had gotten off lightly. Expecting to face similar casualties to Sorrowhand, the team's Shas'vre was pleasantly surprised when all of his team-mates had re-united after detonating the nova charges. Now they stalked through the debris of the library. The Shas'vre had hoped to destroy the glowing artefact that seemed so prized by the enemy, but with the cataclysmic duel between the daemon lord and XV-104 so close he had had to settle for marking the cultists for missile fire.

Now, seeing the monstrosity emerging, he had to act.

"Kass'l squadron 2, this is Storytale. I am designating a target for precision fire. Concentrate ALL ion beams on the target."

"Confirmed Storytale, marker signal locked in. Please stay clear of target zone. Ion cannons firing, strategic strike power."

At once three searing pillars of blazing white light stabbed down into the emerging creature, the full fury of a supernova almost entirely localised on the monstrous form.

Commander Mon'von, this is K-42. Divert all your forces to the library, that is the heart of everything. Good hunting, Tau'va.

His anger almost got the best of him. The large shadow suddenly cast seemed to matter now. He initially wanted to simply attempt to rampage at the large beaked monstrosity. His systems were certainly prepared. Instead, the thrusters flared as he leaned to the side. He had to act fast. If they were calling IT master he was going to have be much more wary. His guns primed he darted quickly to the side and opened his payload, while also moving out of the way so the ten other XV8's and the second riptide could unload entirely into the monstrosity. His missiles however locked onto the wounded smaller bird. His vengeance still guided his wrath. He would not allow it safety. His words broke into the comm as he flared it to life. The massive pillars of superheated devastation however bought him the time he needed. Thrusters flaring he roared forwards suddenly intending to ambush the daemonic bird from behind and collide him head first into the opposing wall with skull pulverizing force.

..For You Tzchael!!

Ahhahah.. yes my Master you have come for these fools, timely as my last minion has succumbed!... wait, what!?

You have failed me; now I feed on your soul you worthless vulture..

But I..we're so close..you are here?!

[The giant beak clamped down on Tzchael, despite beams of light searing across its maw - tearing the ethereal from from about the unconscious Fio at his core..]

You are the fool Tzchael... it cackled and rumbled in the face of ruinous firepower.... then abruptly - the conflagration snapped out of existence, the force shunting all aside. The only sound that of a gigantic Riptide battlesuit tackling thin air and crashing down to obliterate the entire Academy Library under it's weight; shuddering the entire upper concourse superstructure..

Silence followed; the echoing of lost souls and daemons recalled....

A single feather, the size of a firewarrior settled to the concourse floor.. then, snuffed out of sight in a puff of iridescent smoke.

'' Lord Dragonfire, this is Captain Darius we could use some help, it would appear that a full on daemonic incursion is happening.. I mean a big one.. the null drones are straining to contain it, and the Riptide is taking it on.. permission to request fire support''

''Permission granted captain, I'll be there shortly, contact the orbiting fleet see if they have any null field capability, use the Valiants Geller fields if you can, if we can blanket the area we can drain its power..then firepower will make it regret it's actions this day''

All units, this is K-42. We're not registering any further etheric presence on the orbital. Please advise. Tau'va.

Is...is...is it over?


Any remaining personnel, this is Kakapo. I'm not seeing any more Mont'au forces any-more. They just vanished! Is this another trick? What's going on?

"She is stable then?"
"Yes. The internal bleeding was pretty bad, but we have gotten it under control." a Fio'Ui told him. "She is still in bad shape, but it does not seem to be fatal."
"Thank you. May the light of Tau'va give us strength in these dark hours."

>CRIM01: COMMAND, CRIMSON MONAT, READY AT LAUNCH BAY 02.

>KOR'UASH'O: CRIMSON MONAT YOU ARE CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF AT LAUNCH BAY 02. GOOD HUNTING.
>CRIM01: CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF AT LAUNCH BAY 02. TAU'VA.

The jets on the back of his XV8 roared to life. The XV8 leaned forward as it braced for the catapult to launch. Shas'vre Sei'gi focused on the data feed of his HUD and readied himself for takeoff. I cannot stand idly by as the battle rages on.

His HUD scrolled through his suit's status. Plasma rifle and burst cannon systems were clear. I must continue to fight... for those who cannot.

A green light flashed on his HUD and lightning crackled along the rails of the catapult as his suit shot forward into the void. With a flash the suit emerged from the ship and two shield drones moved up to flank either side.

Vre'Sei'gi streaked across the void as he closed in on the ATT station library. Where darkness once gathered, only light will shine. Exact justice upon evil!

[spoiler=]I didn't want to leave the fight on my previous note, so instead I'll leave myself fighting on as the battle continues. I'm off to bed. o7.[/spoiler]

Kor'O Run'al begins initiating orders to move the fleet into the fray of battle while the cruisers turn around to dive into warpspace in order to flee the chaotic scene. Kor'O Run'al contacts K-42's fleet.

"I am dispatching a wing of Mantas to assist you Kor'O, Hang in there!"

In the bay of one of the Mantas yet to launch, Shas'O Fireheart armors up into his XV-8. A scythe of a slain Tyranid warrior is mounted upon the arm of his battlesuit, as well as poisonous barbs and armor plating from other Tyranid foes decorate his personalized XV-8. Fireheart, as well as the rest of his cadre, are an unconventional group of warriors, they prefer close combat.

The ramp to Fireheart's Manta closes and the bay door of the Blade of Mont'ka opens. The air rushes out and the wing lifts off into the fray. Barracudas and Tigersharks escort the Manta, protecting it from the Tzeentchian space daemons. Fireheart connects his HUD to an onboard camera of his Manta. He takes note of the K-42's craft being attacked, and orders a breach-and-engage route in order to liberate the ship. The plan is illustrated by an AI system and uploaded to the HUD of every Shas' in Fireheart's wing.

"Listen up, we are going up against, I don't know, but whatever they are... We take the fight to THEM!" He turns his suit around to face each battlesuit and fire warrior in the Manta's bay, he pounds his fist against his chest, his suit mimics his action, "FOR THE GREATER GOOD!"

The rest of the cadre repeats their battle ritual, the fire warriors embark into their devilfish. The Manta door opens...

Rolling over on the library floor, Tael looked about him.. at the ruin and damage.. Oh My Aun! I need a gravatic spann - thud.

Then passed out as a medi'vesa hovered in close.

It would be hours of seeking out the wounded and surviving.. even now the changes seeped away..
