That's true, Laran isn't a Chaplain (a good thing all considered) but his position in the Chapter means he provides morale. He won't be able to give the deeper council of a Chaplain but he might offer a few words of encouragement, he'll have at least one thing to say to make Artos feel as if he isn't alone with his trouble.

EDIT: Is it just me or does the Deathwatch seem to be a dumping ground for a Chapter's misfits? Haha  :D

Well, in Rant's case it's more that he later became a misfit. Towards the start of his tour of duty he was normal, but it's just Morel's Reach that messed with his head.

Like I said, you really don't want to know what that Dominatrix did to him (although I'll give you a clue; when it came to killing the beast, he had to literally climb onto the back of its neck and blow its head off with half a dozen demo charges)

Well, if he was still on the outside of the thing... Maybe he took a more circuitous route.

Just want to say that peleus' chant, the lo there do i see... bit is adapted from a film  i saw over the summer about an arab who goes to the north and fights along side a group of norse warriors who fight a weird bear cult thing. I think its  called the 7th warrior or something simalar. I recommend people watch it if you come across it as its a great film.
The chant i adapted it from is some thing like

lo, there do i see my father
lo, there do i see my mother
lo there do i see my ancestors back to there very beggining
soon i shall join them in the halls of vallhalla
where the brave live forever.
though i fly through the valley of death i shall fear no evil for i am at 50,000 feet and climing

That'll be The 13th Warrior.  Sounds like an interesting film, I'll have to watch it one of these days.

I also highly recommend it, excellent film. I spent a few minutes copying down that chant too and few other things the Vikings say.

In extremis, Artos could turn to Laran... I'll stop short of having Rant intervene, though, on the grounds that although Rant knows emotional trauma, fear and anger are alien emotions to him, and he's specialising in entirely the wrong field to offer counsel; a shame, because it would be interesting to build up that trust that Demos was going on about when he had a go at Rant.
Alas, he'll never make Iron-Father anyway seeing as Inquisitor Schwert seconded him permanently to the Deathwatch.

I must say, though, Swarbie, that Artos is an extremely interesting character and I like him.


Well thankyou.

Artos' problem is that it's actually pretty much a form of temporary hypno-indoctrination that he needs to be completely safe around his brothers. I figure that in his chapter, a chaplain's Rite of Sanctification would reach much more deeply into their sub-conscious than with other marines.If a chaplain isn't around, he would have to let a librarian keep an eye on him during the battle to send him to sleep if he gets out of control.   

And, yes, knowing Rant, he doesn't seem to be a good choice for the tour's councellor. Although, Artos does feel a connection with him as they've both fought the tyranids.

That, and both have tendencies to go psychotic given the correct stimuli; admittedly Rant and Artos manifest this in different ways, but still, it's something. :P

I've just put the land fall post up.

As it is at the moment a sudden attack disarray with general panic on their part which will rally Sommer I would prefer to survive for the moment other than that unleash hell

Have what ever you want come against us, but right now the actual attack is unknown of, those crisis suits were sent to reinforce the Shas'la in his investigation of what the impact was having been in a training exercise (which of course the marines don't know hence why I didn't cover it)



This here is my very favourite gun...I call her rita.

[...] they've both fought the tyranids.

Laran's fought the 'Nids too, although his experiences weren't so bad.

at the moment I believe it to be -

Drop pod 1:
Captain Demos
Artos
Rant
Laran

Drop pod 2:
Kraven

Drop pod 3:
Hunrik
Captain Corvin


others have yet to post or be included in someone else's post.
