I'm thinking of writing an Adeptus Mechanicus story but before i do, I would like your help in making up Adeptus Mechanicus rites and chants. The main ones i'm looking for are:

Rite of Unbinding
Ritual of Dislocation
Benediction against Failure
Rite of Protection
Rite of Sealing
Rite of Supplication
Rites of Preparation

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Blessings of the Omnissiah be on you all.

Take one word from group A, and one word from B, and put 'of' and maybe something from C in the middle. easy!

A. blessing, bension, commendation, consecration, dedication, grace, invocation, favour, support, etc

B. the Gods, the God, the Macine God, the all mighty, preperance, belief, confidence, dependance, faith, unbinding, removal, reparation, hope, protection, sanctuary, sealing, fixinng, confirmation, authentication, imprimatur, insigia, enclose, confirmation, segregation, etc

C. blessed, holy, sure, great, major, etc.

There you go!

Sure I'll give you hand. Notice I have too much time on my hands :p . One thing do you want them short and sweet or long and detailed. Another thing is that I don't know too much fluff on the Cult of the Machine, all I know really is that their the 40k version of Bill Gates, their quest of knowlede is for the STC, they see the Emperor as a master of man but don't recognise the Imperial Creed the bloody heretics and that they follow their own scriptures. And all I know about Mechanicus scriptres is that they consider wisdom as a divine manisfestation (now if I spelled that right I am God...or Goddess), and because machines hold knowledge they see it as supremem, flesh is weak, iron strong and thats really about it. I've heard the word Omnissiah before too but don't know quite what it is. If you can give me a little more fluff about the cult I will do my best to write those rites...ohhh a poet...sort of. I'll shut up now

The 40K bill gates?? You shouldn't have said that, now whenever I see something that looks like a techpriest I'll shoot it first.

PS the omnissiah is the machine god :) .

Sister_Mel, being the Expert *ahem* on the Adeptus Mechanicus, I will gladly provide any background you require in exchange for lovely chants and rites. Perferably I would like the rites and chants to be short and sweet as you so elegantly put it, however if you feel like creating long detailed ones that's fine (i could pass them off as hymns or prayers)

Adeptus Mechanicus

This site has basic (and i do mean basic) background stuff on the Admech.

Oh and thanks for the word lists K-Tana, very useful.

Your *ahem* is justified. I would put myself forward as a serious contender for the title of secondary fluff master. ( I have read pretty much all the fluff apart from the original rogue trader stuff.)

1) Fabius Bile

2) Eldar Titans: Phantom and Revenant, Imperial Titans Warhound and Warlord. Adeptus Titanicus?

3)Ceramite?

4)Tallarn

5) Unknown

6) Emperor Class

I might have some of these wrong but then I am strictly an Adeptus Mechanicus 'Expert' and don't concern myself with the affairs of the wider Galaxy. Become a secondary fluff Master, aslong as my superior knowledge of the Admech is noted.

1) Forgetting both the Tech Guard and the Praetorians.

7) It is red with corrosion from vast ancient factories, which since they are earlier than the present technology are revered as holy.

Skitarii IS the Tech Guard and also includes the Praetorians since it is the collective term for the Admech's main army. The Skitarii (or Tech Guard) includes the following unit types:

Hypaspists - Infantry
Sagitarii - Heavy Weapons
Cataphractarii - Tank Crews
Ballisterarii - Experimental Weapons
Praetorians and Robot Cohorts

See, Admech military structure isn't as simple as you'd think.

And never say 'Modern' in referance to the 40K universe, 'Modern' = As is now, 'In 40K terms' = As is in the 40K universe and 'In Admech terms' = from the point of view of the Admech.

Ok Inquisitor, the $1,000,000 question.

Pictured below is a section of the Martian surface. Name the surface feature shown.

Dragonslayero nope your wrong. Try again. Defiler you're absolutely right, back to the topic: I would like help in making Admech rites and chants (a few hymns and prayers would help also :D ) Oh and by all means keep guessing the suface feature in the picture, you will eventually get it (even if you lot end up naming every feature on the planet) Sorry my superiority syndrome kicked in again.

Let me see...
The Cracked up area in the midle of the pics is called Noctis Labyrinthus
The Plateu directly to the south is called Syria Planum
The valley stretching out to the east of the pic is called Ius Chasma
The area directly to the east is called Daedalia Planum
The mountain range stretching out to the south is known as Claritas Fossae
And the one big crater in the northwest corner is known as Pavonis Mons
the plateu stretching out southeast of the pic is known as Sinai Planum

Satisfied now... oh master of the knowlege of the machine god...?

By the way the Noctus Labyrithus was found without the map... just click properties for the pic...
