Past event – Established a Keep
You lent your assistance to establishing a Chapter keep upon an isolated frontier world as part of the Black Templars’ eternal crusade. This grim fortress stands as a monument to your deeds and those of your fighting company.
Chapter demeanour – Zealous
When not engaged in battle, the brethren of the Black Templars are invariably to be found preparing for it. They pass their time in prayer and meditation, or engaged in exacting training rituals. Those Initiates entrusted with the training of a Neophyte spend long hours
passing on their knowledge to their young pupil and supervising endless drills, practice sessions, and trials.
The brethren frequently impose upon themselves many hardships, foregoing all but the bare necessities in order to purify themselves in the eyes of the Emperor and their primarch, and to emulate the example of their founder Sigismund.
When serving alongside the Battle-Brothers of other Space Marine Chapters, many Black Templars prepare themselves through long fasts and week-long vigils in order to tolerate the presence of Space Marine librarians.
For those who serve in the Deathwatch, fighting alongside a brother Space Marine who wields psychic power is a particular hardship, a trial they must undergo in order to serve the Emperor more fully and to strike down the hated alien. For this reason, great care is undertaken when selecting a Black Templar for secondment to the Deathwatch, for only
a brother able to contain his deep-seated intolerance will be able to fight to his full capacity.
Despite this, even these individuals are likely to pass every hour not spent fighting in deep contemplation and prayer, often cloistering themselves away from their fellow Deathwatch Space Marines in a personal shrine to the Emperor, Dorn, and Sigismund.
Personal demeanour – Pious
The Space Marine cherishes faith in his Primarch and the Emperor above all.
Power armour history – Thy Strength be Legend
The raw physical strength of the Adeptus Astartes is already the stuff of legend, which all
power armour further enhances. This suit, however, makes the bearer’s strength truly titanic. Such armour has created tales of burning vehicles levered from atop trapped comrades and crumbling buildings supported by the Battle-Brother alone.
The bearer receives an extra +10 bonus to Strength, in addition to the normal bonus granted by power armour.
The Strength bonus from this power armour is added in after the modifications for Unnatural Strength.
Ear of the Emperor
All Battle-Brothers pray to the Emperor to guide their hand in battle and help them to do their righteous duty.
Some, however, hear his voice and even converse with him through their dreams and meditations. For the most part this has no effect on the Battle-Brother’s daily existence, and even his fellow brothers will see little unusual in his constant prayer and religious muttering. Sometimes the Emperor can demand unusual service from the Battle-Brother, which may be at odds with the goals of his Kill-team.
At the start of a Mission, the GM rolls a dice. If the result is odd, then the Emperor has chosen the PC for a special Objective which the GM tells him about in secret. This should be a Tertiary Objective (see page 230) and can be literally anything, even something that is completely at odds with the Mission’s primary goal.
