Investigating the Synapsis Omnis Cerebrum

Post by Brass Doge on Sun Jul 27, 2014 4:03 am

There is a new threat converging upon The Jericho Reach. A Tyranid hive tendril has been discovered entering the sector coming up through our galaxy much as hive fleet Behemoth has. The first planet to fall to their ravenous hunger was the death world of Meskaile. While the resilient inhabitants, who have long been tempered against hardship, fought admirably, they stood little chance against their ever changing foe. As there have been numerous other worlds that have begun besieged by this strain, the Xeno's have taken great efforts to fortify the world of Meskaile while they consume the resistant flora and fauna. This is where the Inquisition finds need of your team.

When the Tyranids first invade a planet, they do so with shock troops: Hormagaunts, Termagants, and other expendable resources which are thrown against the defending forces in great quantities since there biomass can be easily broken down and their simple structural design replicated with equal ease. The second Phase involves more sophisticated organisms: Carnifexs, Hive Crones, and Zoanthropes all fall under this category as they are deployed to deal with specific foes the simpler organisms could not. The third phase deals with the consumption. Once the opposition has been defeated, the Tyranids create their feeder organisms. Once birthed, these xenos begin to devour, dissolve and immolate all organic material into a base biotic sludge that can be dredged up through long capillaries into their hive fleet above. It is during this phase that you will be inserted.

The world of Meskaile is lost, its inhabitants all but devoured. The 151 st Catachan Guerilla Company stationed there ceased communication only 2 days after the invasion began. While the warriors have ceased to communicate, the automatons have not. and what intelligence we received concerned us greatly. The hazy servo skull footage sent through to us revealed a previously unknown Tyranid xeno. Its enlarged cerebral region and diminutive led us first to believe that it was a mutated zoanthrope, but the size difference is too much of a change for it to have been accidental. The Watch Station has designated this organism Synapsis Omnis Cerebrum. This organism was created specifically for a purpose. With this being the first confirmed sighting of such an organism, we require some much needed and highly detailed account of what its purpose is. How you acquire this information is left to your judgement, be it through covert observation or a frontal attack to determine is personal combat abilities. Though a forewarning: the more intelligence we recover, the better chance we will have of exploiting any weakness it might have.

As stated before you will be inserted on Meskaile and left to hunt your target. Additionally, if you come across any Catachan survivors, it would be important to extract them as well as they may have first hand knowledge as to fight this monstrosity. That includes recording devices and data cores from outposts or Imperial Bastions.

The Inquisition understands how important and delicate this operation could become, and I have been granted permission to allow you access to a project they have been studying. As most of you know, lesser Tyranid organisms are almost always under the direct supervision of a "synapse" organism. In this way the Tyranids can keep them from falling upon each other like starving fenrisian wolves. The Inquisition believes that, with the aid of a catalyst, the kill team should be able to walk among the lesser creatures unmolested, granted there isn't a higher organism in the vicinity to guide their actions. With this solution we believe you could essentially become invisible to a majority of their forces.

May the Emperor guide your sights and hone your blades.


PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: assess (to your content) the purpose and abilities of this new Tyranid organism
SECONDARY OBJECTIVE: extract splintered Catachan fighters for debriefing
SECONDARY OBJECTIVE: recover data cores from no less than 2 Imperial locations


Allotted Acquisition: 47

So, if I understand it correctly, we will each be issued Infiltrol Enamel for our mission?

In a sense, YES! This variant has been modified with a genetic marker specially coded with Tyranid bio-mass. You'd appear as just another grunt in the eyes of a Hormagaunt or a Pyrovore.
