    Probably not nearly as complicated as the human one seems (only the last 7 digits really count..) I expect it would be keyed to local time, though. Might want to ask about whether it's morning or evening at your leisure...

    No noticeable face ridges, either. Would the Tau Brothers even have that?

    Baring her teeth... She's trying to smile. <facepalm> A very junior diplomat, it appears.

    Oof. I wonder what Tau use-name he'll end up with...

    For the uninitiated, 'I' means Initiative, a measure of a species' reflexes and reaction time. 3 is human norm, 4 is superhuman (ie Space Marine supersoldiers). Anything higher hits low levels of superspeed.

    Sharing information! That'll put her at ease.

    And then you blew her mood right back to 'worried'.

    Hopefully, he can convince the senior officers of the threat... Assuming they haven't been subverted. Crap.

    And you haven't wondered why you've still got charge? How conservative have you been with the power usage?

    "Not a pleasant sensation, in fact..."

    Right. There may well be a few Ork Infiltrators lurking somewhere too.

    Good, good, appeal to the group mentality. Joy of them having evolved from a herd species, way back down the evolutionary track...

    Or vice-versa, though your ring can fix that easily enough.

    Some learning ahead for all concerned. Jolly cooperation!

    Plus, the likelihood of their weapons beating even a low-level environment shield. 2+ save, I would hope...

    Careful, they're still on edge... Don't want to set off any incidents...

    Oof, no wonder the radio contacts seemed a bit unsettled. No Ork infiltrators, at least.

    Hopefully not, and ew. I'm sure scans would have alerted you to a Purestrain, at least.

    "Brace yourself, this can be a little... Disconcerting."

    Thankfully, you aren't getting hit by the smells. I shudder at the thought...

    Thinking "What the Fornication was that thing?"

    This is the kind of thing that will unsettle people, Paul...

    Meet your new ingroup, Lantern.

    And quite a few shocked medics... Let's hope the guards don't start shooting...

    "What just happened?"

    Well, that was... impressive. I see some upset people in the near future... And quite a bit of fast talking...

    Well, so far so good. Let's hope that little display is enough to make them realise this is someone who you want to be on the good side of...

    But...but they're tau. For Emperors sake they don't even fight in melee. You cant fix what is already that broken.

    Didn't it just analyse alien tissue within seconds? And we have seen it do the same with alien tech, no? The Warp aspect may be a problem though.

    Also, can the ring not just heal the Genestealer infection? if it can detect it, it should be able to remove it.


    Also interesting to see a Paul struggling with his ring, maybe due to sleep deprivation.


    As for the people saying the Orks have it best: that's like saying a slave with a brain implant that makes them happy has a good life.

    Just because the Orks do not realise their entire life amount to nothing more then the worthless perpetuation of mindless destruction doesn't mean their lives suddenly gain meaning.

    They are a malfunctioning bio-weapon, nothing more.

    That's just it, with just a little orange light modification, they'll be able to fight in Melee, maybe even better than the humans! Nothing's too broken to fix if you have the right tools!

    All Paul has to do is create an Orange Transparent Chainsaw and every Tau female in the vicinity will immediately start ovulating.

    Tau tech, which is the least advanced in the setting by several orders of magnitude.

    Imperium technology runs the gambit from a couple thousand years more advanced then the Tau to more advanced then the Guardians. Also a lot of it runs at least partially on the Nosphere, which is psychic magic. And of course most of the Imperium's tech is warded.

    Eldar technology is literally made of warp magic.

    Necron technology is more advanced then the Guardians.

    Ork technology only works because of the Ork collective psychic belief in it.

    Put simply, the most Paul could do for the Tau is give them a small boost via copying some mass produced Imperial Guard crap.

    The most useful thing he could give them would be the ability to warp travel without using warp fuckery. That Alone is worth it's wait in gold

    Which he can't do because his ring lacks a Guardian database.

    Also the Tau don't travel through the Warp.

    i mean, the whole point of DA ORKIE BOYZ and their ancestors the korks, is that they live to fight. their lives gain meaning as they fight. every scar, every nick, every bullet, is a thousand words in the majesty of that ORKIE GITZ life. it's why the WAAGHbosses are so kitted out with almost as much cybernetics as a mechanicus priest.

    Their lives hold no meaning to us because we can't understand a life that is constantly fighting, because humans get tired of fighting, and always being angry. ORKIES don't.

    He seems to have a regenerating ring, like the WHF version, because a single charge in a Warhammer world is just not fun or fair. Maybe this one has a database too?

    Just to check, but is that the mental noise that was intended here?

    Zoat is there a version of the SI that ended up in the She Ra Princess of Power universe?

    I could see him helping Adora with her issues and maybe help Hordak with his whole cloning and self esteem issues.
    He already helped Kon with his problems, plus he could start a romance with Hordak and maybe Entrapta, he did seem interested in one with Kon and M'gan, also defeating Hordak Prime and making the Horde into a benevolent empire that uplifts the world they conquer would be something he could do, he already helped Xor make the soldiers of his world more interested in honor rather than simple loyalty.

    Is there a version of the SI that has ended up in a romantic relationship with a male?
    Will we ever see him if there is?

    Wouldn't the orks be really easy for an orange ring to subvert? Kind of like how OL was able to bring Mammon around? Whey want to break shit so it's just a matter of aiming them.

    Assuming that one link to the figures is what Paul is working with . . . Good news. The Tau have big titty waifus.

    I'm sure it won't be too difficult to get used to their faces. Pus comes to shove, he could probably just use his ring to make himself okay with their faces.

    I'm talking about this because I have never liked nor cared for the Orks, so Ork talk is meaningless to me.

    Exactly! They have good tech and can build mech, so why didn’t they build mech equipped with sword?! Guns are so last year.

    Shamasal, actually, but the SI doesn't always think with perfect grammar.
    Yes.
    That setting Goes In The Box.

    Though recovering Princess Adora is a long term objective of the He-Man version.
    I don't have one in mind at the moment.
    I don't think that's actually canon.

    The original version of the Orks, back during the War in Heaven. Modern Orks are their degenerated descendants, because every galactic power with two brain cells to rub together head shots any Ork Warboss that looks like it could be turning into a Krork and leveling what infrastructure got made.

    See, Orks are basically a living RTS race, complete with a tech base that's genetically and psychically encoded into them. The more successful an Ork Waaagh is, the more of their own techbase they can unlock(and the bigger and stronger the Orks themselves become). After a few centuries to a millennia of success, an Ork Waaagh can go from zero space flight and little industry to being scary developed across hundreds of worlds and being on the verge of constructing their own Attack Moons and Attack Planets.

    Orks are the only race that fought during the War in Heaven that could actually restore themselves to the heights they had at the time, becoming Krork once again but this is not a good thing as Krork are still a rather monstrous race of living weapons, just with psychically boosted scary advanced technology, insanely huge disciplined armies of gigantic powered armored Krork(Imperial Knight sized and beyond) and the ability to speak in proper grammar.

    During the Great Crusade, the main reason the Emperor pushed for such a rapid blitzkrieg of the galaxy was because the Ork Empires at Gorro and Ullanor were getting scary close to reaching the point where they snow ball beyond all control(Gorro itself was an almost complete Attack Planet), and odds are those weren't the only ones as well.

    Eh, still liked the series, and i really think that he could have helped Hordak with, well everything that happened to him.

    Are we ever going to see one of the previous alternate versions of the SI and the universes they ended up in?
    Like Avatar, what has he been up to, aside from helping Azula?

    He could have shot him dead and then headed for a better drawn parallel universe.
    Probably.
    He did kill a group of assassins who went after her.
