Hi, everybody, this is fluff about the creation of The Outsider, and his favored lord, Kae'Tyr.
Kae'tyr, one of the most intelligent beings in the galaxy, struggled through the necropolis, feeling his body failing, cursing the weakness. He could tell he would not live to see the old ones crushed, but he would nevertheless unleash the element of their destruction upon them.
He reached the obelisk in the centre of the necropolis, and entered, before being taken up to it's very top, brushing the edges of space. He looked up at the hated star which cursed them with death, then bent over the great dimension relay, whose controls would remain incomprensible to almost the entire universe for eternity, before aiming it at the star later know as Eta Carinae, where one of the greatest c'tan ever to have been discovered fed. He focused the relay on the great conciousness, drawing it down into the prepared necrodermis, watching the great being gradually come to life. As the c'tan slowly appeared, Kae'tyr felt his body failing him at last, and knew his name would be remembered by the necrontyr as the destroyer of the old ones.
Through the haze of death, Kae'tyr saw the c'tan straighten and freeze, tasting the universe for the first time. Eventually, the c'tan began to move again, and floated over him as he lay dying. The last thing he saw as a necrontyr was the great being reaching down to him.
The Outsider felt the pull of the dimensional relay, and eagerly waited for the monent when he could join the material universe, and taste the splendor the necrontyr and Mephet'Ran had promised.
He gradually saw a great city spread out beneath him, and standing before him, a necrontyr smiling in awe and pride as he saw the Outsider and death took him. The Outsider froze, feeling the taste of the Necrontyr's emotions, as well as those in the city around him. He could tell the necrontyr in front of him was incredibly intelligent, one of the greatest minds in existance. The Outsider gradually felt comprension of the Necrontyr, as tiny portions of the essence leaking from the city he had absorbed remained in his conciousness, allowing him to understand the necrontyr, although this unique ability would one day be his downfall.
He suddenly noticed the Necrontyr in front of him dying, and knew that that necrontyr would be able to bring him great feasts of essence. He floated over the body, and reached down as kae'tyr's eyes closed, and rescued his essence from his dying body.
The Outsider fashioned a necrodermis for Kae'tyr's essence, and placed kae'tyr's essence within it. Kae'tyr named the Outsider Tela'Tor, meaning great saviour, beleiving him to be the saviour of the necrontyr race.
Kae'tyr began to gather followers extremely rapidly for Tela'Tor, amzing the necrontyr with The Outsider's gift of eternal life, until Tela'Tor had many followers, almost as many as Mephet'Ran. When the Deceiver's offer of eternal life was made by the c'tan, only Tale'Tor truly kept his word. While every other c'tan feasted on their disciples, Tela'Tor transferred their essence wholly to an improved shell, devised by Kae'tyr to retain the necron's personality perfectly for all eternity. In so doing, Tela'Tor's name was proven to be prophetic, as only his followers remained truly necrontyr. However, in so doing, he earned the title of the Outsider to all other c'tan and their servants.
when all of the Tela'Tor's disciples were transformed, the outsider himself fashioned a necrodermis for Kae'Tyr, one far superior to every other necron lord's. When Kae'tyr first fought, he discovered that he too had Tela'Tor's gift of absorbing some of his enemies' essence, gained while the Tela'Tor had held his essence to save him.
At first, Tela'Tor fought in a way similar to the other c'tan, attacking simply and brutally against the old ones. However, as he absorded the essence of fallen old ones, he and Kae'Tyr learned of their way of war, which can be likened to that of the eldar. He began to fight the old ones in this way, easily crushing them, contributing to their downfall just as much as the Nightbringer and the Deceiver, if not more. Tela'Tor had a huge advantage over the old ones and the other c'tan; His followers could enter the webway, as they remained intelligent, and were motivated by undying loyalty to Tela'Tor. However, the webway fought back against the necrons, shifting and changing, never allowing them near the centre where the darkest of secrets would one day lay.
When Tela'Tor found he could reach no more of the webway, he, like the other c'tan began to lose interest in hunting the old ones, and faded from knowledge for aeons. When the young races struck back against the necrons, Tela'Tor once again fought, choosing to battle every race at once in a campaign of terror, before finally coming face to face with the laughing god, whose followers he had never fought. because of this, The Outsider was able to be tricked by laughing god into devouring all of the few remaining c'tan, except for the Nightbringer, Deceiver, and Dragon. The Outsider was saved in the end by Kae'tyr personally traversing the webway using knowledge absorbed from the greatest of the Old Ones, in order to find and slay an avatar of the laughing god. Kae'tyr was then able to pass this knowledge onto Tela'Tor, who was finally free of the machinations of the laughing god for all eternity. The laughing god discovered this, and fled to the deepest reaches of the webway.
However, the fragments of the devoured c'tan remained in the outsider's mind. Being far greater than any other things he had devoured, they tormented his mind, driving him to insanity. To escape from the whispering, The Outsider created the dyson sphere, where he would rest. Before he sealed himself into the Dyson sphere, he ordered Kae'Tyr to search the galaxy for a way to rid him of the voices of the trapped c'tan.
So it was that while the necrons slumbered in their tombs and the young races grew up, The legion of the Outsider, led by Kae'Tyr searched throughout the galaxy for the way to cure their beloved god. Unlike other necrons, they conduct experiments to this day, advancing their science to an incredible mastery of the material universe.
The necrons discovered a way to free Tela'Tor using a combination of the blackstone fortress technology and the dimensional matrixes in 33,457. After building the device over two millenia, they discovered that the harlequins had sealed the dyson sphere, trapping the Outsider. They now seek to understand the webway, and know that the Outsider may be freed from his prison if they can defeat the harlequins, their most hated enemy.
Wow, that was long, sorry it went on for so long, but i hope you'll agree it was worth it. Rules for Kae'Tyr will be in the rules development forum soon.
Aye, very well done. Rep for you. Hope to see more!
Real nice fluff!
So... if I gave some daemons a matte paint-job, would they be "Matte Daemons?"
