Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 18. If this were a movie, it would probably be R.

Take control of Karth, a young, powerful Psyker who has managed to lead a slave army to take over a massive battleship, and now has the whole galaxy at the tip of his fingers. Embrace the gifts of the Dark Gods and all the power and corruption it brings, sell your services to the highest bidder, take to the stars as a feared raider and pirate or try to find a peaceful existence among the dark and cruel stars. As the anarchic and terrifying Kaam the Prophet, loyal servant of Malice, rises up in the galaxy with a bloodlust for psykers and servants of the Warp, attempt to take down the champion of a destructive God that seeks to tear the galaxy apart.

This is a sequel to Fear the Psyker. It's my longest story yet and it has a lot of variables, so if, or more accurately, when you encounter any bugs, please do send them on, and I'll try my best to fix them. Also, the Score variable doesn't have anything to do with success, it's just a few variables to tell me what various choices commentators made and what endings they got.

Thanks to Seto and DiniTheWizard for beta-reading this! Anyhow, enjoy!

This is a story about betrayal and subversion.

There's a few "happy endings" you can get here or there where you build up your people after all the hardships they've gone through.

Just remember, you're the bad guy killing other bad guys. In the 40K universe no one wins, there are no happy endings, no one has a chance. Especially the bad guys.

Goddammit, all the endings other than the one at the start were bad. At least you get to survive if you got the True Ending.

Another bug I noticed is that strength doesn’t actually do anything. To test it out, I deliberately lowered my strength to 0 and continued to play on, and nothing happened

The story is fun enough the first time through, but I do have several complaints. First of all, it’s only fun the first time through. There is only one main path, excluding the short paths where you settle on a planet. The story had many chances to diverge into seperate paths, and there were even times when I thought it would, but it always looped back to the same storyline, with only a few minor name changes. It reeks of missed opportunities. Additionally, there were lots of issues with the editing process, and if I were you, I would fire your beta-readers. Throughout the story, I encountered unfinished sentences and paragraphs, paragraphs appearing on pages they’re not supposed to be, at least 1 instance of a misdirected link, a page with no link, and an action that was supposed to reduce morale by 15 increasing it by that amount instead. There were also times where names became mixed up, which brings me to another complaint. The reader isn’t given enough time to become acquainted with (and thus develop an emotional attachment to) the various lieutenants on board, especially if the reader didn’t read the prequel or (like me) read it a long time ago. I often found myself trying to recall who a particular person is and failing to do so. Overall, with all its flaws accounted for, I rate this game 4/8.

So the true ending is being enslaved because of some crazy trick ass bitch. With all of my soul I beg for a third. This is an incredibly well written series. For the part of my soul that wants to conqueror Malice, let there be a way.

Praise the Dark Gods, this is an awesome story. The only positive endings, I think, are at the beginning, leaving the ship to rule a planet.

Death of A prophet was a very bitter-sweet ending, Kaam along with the twins dies, but so do you...

Great sequel and another captivating story from Steve. Please make this a trilogy and the series will be perfect.

This was a very fine addition to the story of the psyker. As always the characters were well written and the plot had several twists (usually working to screw the characters over) in the true style of Steve.

I noticed from one of the comments that there are more than one true ending, so I'm assuming that I must have screwed up somewhere to get the very bad yet true ending that I did lmao.

Any ways hope to read more stories from you.

Uh... yeah, great story, except I'm confused as to whether you would consider which of the following to be the true ending? The Birth of a God or Death of a Prophet? ;D
