Re: 40k Space Marines Suspended Animation

 

they live longer than normal' date=' don't know off the top of my head [i']how much [/i] longer though ??!!?

 

 

space marines live a very long life. the chapter masters are anywhere from 500-1500 years old. the only reason you don't see a lot of old space marines is that they keep on dieing :) .

Re: 40k Space Marines Suspended Animation

 

I don't play the game and I own none of the materials, so everything I've read I've read online. That being said, my impression was that (barring death by accident or trauma) they live for a couple of centuries. Suspended animation can extend this. Also, if they get severely maimed but still survive, they may get "implanted" into one of the armored Dreadnought shells, where the life support machinery can extend their lifespans to thousands of years.

 

I've been thinking of blaming their long lives on their control over their own metabolisms, and calling it Life Support (Longevity: 400 year lifespan) for 2 points. And giving the Dreadnoughts Life Support (Longevity: Immortality).

Space Marines live a long time. How long depends on which chapter they belong to. An "average" Space Marine can live several hundred years (active, not suspended animation). Marines from specific chapters (such as the Blood Angels) can live for a thousand-plus. While in suspended animation, or in their Dreadnaughts, they can live much longer (one Space Wolves Dreadnaught is 10,000+ years old).

Space Marines: The Resurrection

 

As you may have noticed, the HTML capacity being turned off for these forums has royally messed Chiba Bob's fine writeups for Space Marine implants, and for the Vortex Grenade. I was able to reconstitute them, and have pasted them to this post (not as pretty as the original, but fully legible), as well as attached a Document file, which preserves the original formatting. Chiba Bob, I hope you won't object to this, but if so please let me know. :)

Re: 40k Space Marines Suspended Animation

 

Our group is working on a Warhammer 40k based Hero game. We've been working on a package for Imperial Space Marines, and have come across a few things we're not sure how to represent in Hero terms.

 

One of those is the following ability:

Phase 12 - Sus-an Membrane. This flat, circular organ is implanted over the top of the exposed brain. It then grows into the brain tissue until completely merged. The organ is ineffective without subsequent chemical therapy and training. However, a properly tutored Marine may then enter into a state of suspended animation. This may be a conscious action, or may happen automatically in the event of extreme physical trauma. In this condition a Marine may survive for many years, even if bearing otherwise fatal injuries. Only appropriate chemical therapy and auto-suggestion can revive a Marine from this state - a Marine cannot revive himself. The longest known period of de-animation followed by successful re-animation is 567 years in the case of brother Silas Err of the Dark Angels (d. 321 M.27).

 

We took a stab at it, which I'll post tonight, when I get home. How would you build this ability?

 

Actually, and Imperial Fist Marine lasted from the time of the Horus Heresy. But, he was also drifting in deep space, into the Eye of Terror, and then landed on a planet. In just his suit. It was pretty cool.
