Xenophilia. Let's not be dicks.
I almost including a (less profane) version of the "cabal of wizards" line when describing why the Cursed Founding was arguably not such a great idea :P

Also, yes, +1 Xenophilia.
Haha I donít think this one is a difficult choice.

+1 Xenophilia



Guilty of Xenophilia, your Chapter brought shame to the Silver Skulls and was declared Exocommunicate Traitoris. The circumstances of their betrayal of mankind remain shrouded in mystery to outsiders and much remains to be determined. Were they pursuing a prophecy of the Prognosticators, a victim of the Cursed Founding forced into a situation where they had no choice, or was it as simple as a mere moment of mercy breaking decades of hypno-indoctrination?

This question and more wait for answers, but if you'd prefer, we can continue setting the foundation for them.

How mutated is their gene-seed? Because almost anyone would prefer less mutated gene-seed and vote accordingly, this'll be a straight, take-it-as-it-falls roll...

The renegades have (at least initially) Pure Gene-Seed, remarkably unscathed even in their treachery.

Given their gene-seed is mercifully free of mutations and flaws, we can move on to the Astartes themselves.

Who is their Figure of Legend? He is foundational to the Chapter's mythos, the example each member of the Chapter looks back on and aspires to be more like.

A Battle Brother of The Silver Skulls, 9th Company, 10th Squad. How they came to be revered by the Chapter is surely a legend in and of itself.

The Chapter Master, trusted to lead the Chapter through thick and thin. He must've been a fearsome combatant and venerable leader, like most in his position.

Fuck it, let's take the random battle brother.

Glass is, as usual, correct.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.

Hmm Iím going to go Chapter Master on this one. We are going into treacherous waters, it might be good to reinforce the idea of strong leadership. But I like both options.

Battle Brother, because both are solid choices but I put more playtime into Battle Brothers than Chapter Master. It's solid reasoning.

+1, Chapter Master is probably better. Gives us a lot of benefits and, I mean, worse case, some random marine did something heroic in our predecessor chapter and got selected to lead/help lead the new one at the founding :P

Disregard this post, I made a mistake of reasoning and reading comprehension regarding MM's post and got confused.

Battle Brothers forever!

The Renegade Chapter's Figure of Legend is a lowly Battle Brother of The Silver Skulls, 9th Company, 10th Squad. By strength of limb, skill at arms, and no small amount of luck, they rose above their stature to etch their name into the annals of legend. Did he defect from The Silver Skulls to fight along your side or was his Company sent to fight next to your Chapter before they turned their backs on the Imperium?

Regardless, his name is whispered in awe.

Quote
89

He did no legendary deed but a score and then some of great ones, refusing to take on a promotion, and was an inspiration to all before he was Lost To The Warp. Many among the Chapter's rank-and-file believe he may yet return in their greatest hour of need. The less hopeful scoff at their optimism, even as they silently pray for it to be true.

Quote
21

He was singularly instrumental to defeating a Tyranid Splinter Fleet, saving whole systems from certain consumption. To slay a Hive Tyrant in single combat is no easy feat and yet it was done at the most critical moment, turning bitter defeat into near-victory. It took time for the Chapter to rebuild but there are few that can claim the victory they have.

On the one hand, Lost to the Warp is neat.

On the other hand, the feat with the Nids feels cooler, if only because we have a few more details and a specific solid event of badassitude.

I'd have loved if we'd gotten a 96-100 roll and had this random marine have been this absolute beast of a soldier but oh well

I say fuck the Nids!

Rookie numbers, Iím at 442 battle brothers hours. And Iím still shit at the game.

I vote lost to the warp, it synergizes with the whole boner for prophesies thing the chapter has too well for me to ignore.

I'd say he was a "Defector", sent on a secret mission by the Chapter Master of the Silver Skulls to support us on our quest.

And voting for Lost in Warp for the return in the time of our greatest need.

I didn't even notice the defection/original member thing.

Yes, I like this, +1. (Or sent by a Prognosticator. Either way.)
