>Be me,
>Be new greeter at an exclusive resort
>First day at work, not sure what I am supposed to be doing
>Take look at front page of the welcome brochure for new guests
>”Welcome to Imperial Diamond Resorts, the Crown Jewel of Archipelagia’s tourist industry”
>”We have got hundreds of miles of pristine beach, and dozens of resorts ranging from “exclusive and isolated” to “party central””
>”We got plenty of fun activities like fishing from a catamaran*, exploring ancient ruins**, gambling at one of several casinos, bird watching in our pristine jungles***, experiencing our hedonist nightlife and 24 hour red light districts****, and of course, golf”
>”Your security is our top priority, and our private island chain has better security than the governor’s palace*****”
>”So relax, enjoy your stay, and make new friends******, and don’t forget, our friendly staff are here to see to your every need*******”
“* We are not liable for injury or death that results from encounters with adverse weather and/or hostile megafauna while travelling in a catamaran, other watercraft, or while swimming”
“**There are several different types of ruin on the island, none of which have been deemed heretical and/or xenos by the appropriate authorities, however, this is subject to change at any time”
“***Rumors of disappearances in the jungle are greatly exaggerated, also reminder we are not liable in case of injury, disappearance, or death”
“****Worship of heretic gods is strictly forbidden at public events”
“*****Rumors that resort chain are a cover for one or more illegal organizations are strictly false, our armed guards and combat servitors are here for your safety”
“******The resort chain is not liable for injury or death resulting from interactions with other guests”
“*******See page 8 for the list of fines associated with the assault or murder of different types of hotel staff, also check out our escort catalogue on page 12”

for anyone joining the thread, this is a free form storytelling / worldbuilding exercise usually done on /tg/, but we recently got nuked by a new mod for being too "quest-like"

basically just make one or more beach/tropical themed 40k characters, and either join in to what other characters are doing, or start telling your own story and see if others join in

some characters are being carried over from the previous threads found here and here:



I will start by posting the most recent posts I saved for my characters before the thread got nuked

Also pic related is a map from the old thread if people need it for something

So far all the action has been happening at either "the ruin", "the resort", or offshore at the ork freebootaz fleet, but eventually enough stuff may happen to justify adding it to the map
(Context is that Vanessa is a part of an admech expedition exploring a multi-layered ruin made up of structures from several different cultures including slaaneshi mayans, undead egyptians, dark eldar, and necron. The expedition is clearly unauthorized, and the magos leading it obviously wants to get his hands on some necron technology, which he insists is actually Dark Age of Technology tech)

>Be Tech-Adept Vanessa
>The tech ritual is taking a long time
>Decide to go powder my nose in a side corridor with less of an audience
>See a fancy looking Necron accompanied by a tomb spyder coming this way
>Run away
“AHHHHHHH Irespectyoursovereigntydon’tshootme!!!”
>Run back into the chamber where the rest of the expeditions is watching the Magos prod a rock with his pelvic auspex arm
“AAAAHHHHHHHHHH ItoldyouitwasNecronsyoustupidfuck!!!!”
>Run through the “sharp blade enthusiast ruin”
>See some Dark Eldar flaying a menial who got lost
“AAAHHHHHH Don’ttakemyskinIlikemyskinanditwouldn’tlookgoodonyouIhavebadcomplexion
>Run through the “bone collectors ruins”
>Some of the skeletons are reanimating and reassembling themselves, plus there are what appear to be ghosts about”
“AHHHHHH Ghostsaren’trealexceptformachinespiritssoyoucan’thurtme”
>Reach the “orgy mayan top layer of ruins”
>Many of the doors have sealed themselves somehow, and daemons are peeling themselves out of the murals
>Realize we are trapped in here
“AHHHH Iamnotintoorgies!!!!”
>Run back down to the bone collectors layer
>Some walking withered corpse in important looking robes offers me a chance to be his bride for all eternity
“AAAHHHH nothanksIhavethreecats!!!”
>Reach the Dark Eldar ruins
>One of them is sodomizing the skinless shrieking victim
“AAAHHHHHH!!!!!! whatiswrongwithyoupeople?!?!?!”
>Return to the rest of the expedition
“Hey everyone, I scouted ahead, and behind, and we are super super super screwed!!!”
(context here is that Rhea is a hotel worker that had to dress up strangely as part of a corporate sponsorship campaign, she is having a conversation with a bird-like abhuman Guardswoman, unfortunately I didn't save the most recent post)

>Be Rhea the Greeter
>Ah yeah, look at me, making small talk with a guest, just like I am paid to do
>By this point I am assuming the soldier is female, judging by the name and tone of her voice
>She appears to be some sort of abhuman, like the ones bred as “pets” by the wealthier inhabitants and guests of this world
>I don’t recognize the accent or uniform, but she could be from a regiment recruited from one of the northern islands of this very world
>I imagine I will get better at recognizing where people are from after working at the resort for a while
>Alicia asks if I am a woman
>Pretend not to be offended
>Straighten up a bit and roll my shoulders back a bit
“You are correct in that assumption, I am a woman”
“This week certain staff are wearing unisex T-shirts provided by one of our corporate sponsors, but next week I will resume wearing”
>Decide to continue the conversation
“Which regiment are you from if you don’t mind me asking?”
“Are you here with the army group moping up the ork freebootaz?”

(Context here is that much of Trish's regiment got corrupted by Chaos over the course of the last two threads. She got captured by the Alpha Legion (who were behind the corruption) but got loaned to a Slaaneshi daemon known as En'Dee who has her own agenda separate, but somewhat parallel to the Alpha Legion)

>Be Trish
>The last few weeks have been strange
>We managed to escape Wonka Land by the skin of our teeth when En’Dee discovered an emergency teleportation beacon that the Inquisitorial Agent had hidden somewhere on her person
>Not entirely sure where since it is a reasonable sized object and she wasn’t wearing much at the time
>I think I can guess though...
>Anyways, we ended up on the Inquisitorial Agent’s voidship, which is unusually small, compact, and automated compared to other voidships I have been on
>But there was still a lot of people on board, and none of them were happy to see us
>The Inquisitorial Agent ordered everyone to kill me, Kayla, and En’Dee, but then En’Dee did something that turned everyone into followers of the “Happiness Angel”, who I now know is called “Slaanesh”
>The ship is basically an orgy den now, but luckily there was lots of places to go where I can avoid people
>I suspect that En’Dee could corrupt me at anytime, but chooses not to since she wants me to join willingly
>That being said, there are limits to her patience, and she often drops veiled threats anytime she wants me to something
>Anyways, a few days ago she summoned myself and Kayla to her “Throne Room” onboard the voidship for an important mission
>Working with Kayla and her corrupted Inquisitorial personnel, she has been able to determine that senior members of the so-called “Alpha Legion” faction here on Archipelagia have been working on a project at the Imperial Diamond Resorts Island Chain in the equatorial region
>En’Dee is sending down several of her agents in pairs to poke around
>She didn’t say why she wants to talk to the Alpha Legion, but I suspect she still has some sort of plan for the female Wonka clone
>Not sure why she is picking on me when she has a ship full of trained operatives, though to be fair, many are now mutated and/or insane
>Me and Kayla check into one of the more exclusive areas of the resort posing as bastard daughters of some Rogue Trader with money to burn
>I have very mixed feelings about all of this
>On one hand it is great to not only be off that ship, but also to be posing as some insanely rich idle nobility with access to funds that probably exceed my former regiment’s annual operating costs
>On the other hand, it is becoming increasingly difficult to overlook the fact that I am likely actively working against the interests of the Imperium to save my own butt...
>Rejoining the Guard is obviously impossible now since no doubt much of my regiment has been written off as tainted, but I would rather go back to living an obscure life of crushing poverty in the fringes of Imperial society than help people like Kayla and En’Dee destroy it, no matter how comfy live is while doing so
>However desertion is rather difficult given that both Kayla and En’Dee can read my thoughts
>It is currently unclear if En’Dee will be joining us for this mission, but I have a feeling she will turn up at some point, and is perhaps already nearby in non-corporeal form
>Kayla on the other hand is a very visible reminder of my predicament
>Beautiful, charming, extroverted, and seemingly sane, she fills the role of wealthy socialite perfectly
>However, I know from the time I have spent with her back on the voidship she can be wild, unpredictable, degenerate, and sadistic when she “cuts loose”
>In addition to her telepathic powers, she is also unnaturally strong, durable, and has the ability to heal injuries incredibly quickly
>She is a senior agent of the Alpha Legion cell, but as a follower of Slaanesh, she also gets along with En’Dee and her subjects very well
>Tonight she seems to be favoring her “Slaaneshi-side”
>Our search for her Alpha Legion buddies apparently begins with a night long bar hopping expedition....In the red light district
>Kayla dresses herself in a nearly translucent night gown, but despite her best efforts, I manage to find a relatively modest open back dress, and enough expensive jewelry to convince the rich people I am one of them and not another disposable whore
>If there is one thing I learned back on my homeworld, it is you do not want horny rich people to think you are disposable
>Anyways, the first stop on our “fact finding mission” is a charming place called “Heels and Corsets”
>Spend the next two hours pretending to drink while leaning against a wall, while Kayla does.....Kayla stuff, and presumably reads minds telepathically while doing so
>After a while, she comes over, puts her arm around my shoulders, tells me I should loosen up a bit, then deftly unhooks the top part of my dress, and runs back to the dance floor waving it around while giggling like a six year old
>Fuck you Kayla
>Fuck you...
also here is the third thread before it got nuked:

Aw fuck, we got jannied. Wonder if the jannies on /tg/ had just become nofun regarding greentexts recently or someone spam reported it.
Welcome. New Blood is always appreciated.
Hard to say, it has been a while since these types of threads were common, so maybe a new janitor doesn't recognize the format.

Or maybe a new janitor has a different interpretation of the rules.

Or maybe this thread just seemed more questy than the others, which were usually either more heavy on satire/humor or more heavy on worldbuilding

>Well that's what she called herself anyway, nobody else in the people we saved at the factory knew her name

>I originaly tought she wanted to know what's the female version of my name, but in retrospect I think she meant something else entirely
>From what she told me
>She was apparently abandonned in the factory district when she was a child and have lived alone in the vent systems and forgoten rooms until I blew the entire thing up
