I seriously still don't get these references at all. It was explained to me yesterday that originally Inquisition in Keffa was based on 40k (whatever that is) and then with no demons left it became the pussy variant in Rines till G2 brought it back to 40k? (Without me knowing what that is, I'm confused).

I am not the best guide as I think myself the layman in 40k but basically it was a pen'n'paper RPG setting (originally just warhammer without 40k) of futuristic, very grandiose sci-fi that over time turned into entire franchise with video games, books, animation movies etc.

Basically in this setting there is God Emperor sort of that rules everything and has lots of orders. Basically the social structure, to put in in coder's language boils down to:

if problem - apply terror
if solved - good
if not - apply more terror
rinse and repeat

Inquisition is the top branch of the tree. When they find signs of heresy they don't throw the baby out with the bathwater, they throw the entire kindergarten out with the bathwater.

I believe it translated well into Obia'Syela, since early Inquisition in OS was the one time I had the inexplicably awesome opportunity to enjoyably balance on the edge between being rewarded and being executed.

G2 was always on that edge as well :)

I think most realms would've banned half of OS within a month, including G2 (before he became ruler obviously).

That’s a rough idea. God-Emperor’s been dead for 10k years. His soul is lighting the space lighthouse, human FTL travel is through hell.

The plan settled is only done by Inquisitors. Local governments are usually more lenient, agri-world governors are very lenient, hive-world governors tend to be more harsh because gangs.

It started out as the RPG Rogue Trader, a few editions later it turned to the 40k tabletop war game.

It did translate very well to OS, due to the actions of Spearhold and co.

(Without me knowing what that is, I'm confused).

The Inquisition are secret police that hunt down the corruption caused by the Forces of Chaos (The "Warp", also known as the Realm of Chaos, is the dimension that ships enter to travel FTL, it's ruled over by Lovecraftian horrors that want to break into the "Real World" basically), Heretics (basically anything but absolute faith in the God Emperor is not tolerated), mutants and rebels (the former because the Imperium of Man is kinda racist), and assaults from vicious alien species (think Aliens or the Zerg). They rather lack empathy for their fellow Humans (or anyone else really) in following what they consider their holy purpose. If need be, they can call down a verdict of Exterminatus, basically destroying an entire planetary biosphere and all life upon a world (and if a few billion lives have to be lost in the process of protecting the Imperium of Man, so be it! Nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure).

40k = Earth (now + 37,990 years) during which point mankind, under the Emperor, conquered the galaxy only to suffer the greatest single civil war ever which consequently unleashed the horrors of the warp (40k version of Hyperspace, but also + Hell) to reap havoc in realspace while the Imperium itself is  was further weakened from within and without by foul xenos, heretics, and worse. It is the mission of the Holy Inquisition to root out these threats within the Imperium and cauterize them for the greater good...often involving a stupendous amount of murder. The Inquisition is basically what Hitler's  SS were like, and just as villainous. However, in the grimdark future of the 41st millenium, it is better that a million die then one heretic be left unjudged.


For more on these, the following link is 10/10 the best out there: [size=80%]https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Inquisition[/size]


Remeber, kids, NO ONE expects the Beluaterran Inquisition!

y'all, the f/at guys even wrote a song based on the Mel Brooks original...
Quote
The eye that sleepth not.
The Inquisition (Let's begin)
The Inquisition (Look out, sin)
We have a mission
To kill all the Heretiiiiiics~ (Heretics, He-he-he-heretics~)
We're gonna teach them (Wrong from right)
We're gonna help them (See the light)
And make an offer that they can't refuse.
(That the heretics just can't refuse)




Confess (confess), don't be boring
Re-peeeent~ (Repent), don't be dull
A fact you're ignoring
It's better to ditch the skull throne than your skull




The Inquisition (What a show)
The Inquisition (Here we go)
We know you're wishing that we'd go away
But the Inquisition's here and it's here to stay




The Inquisition (Oh boy)
The Inquisition (What joy)
The Inquisition (Oi oi)




I was posting down in /tg/, I was minding my own business
I was about to post some Loli Daemonette.
Then these Ordos Hereticus plunge in
And they throw me in a dungeon
And they shoved a revved up chainsword up my ass.




Is that considerate?
Is that polite?
And not a tube of Preparation H in sight.




I'm sittin' flickin' daemons
And I'm lookin' through the thickens
When suddenly these guys break down my walls.
I didn't even know them
And they grabbed me by the scrotum
And they started playing Ping Pong with my balls




Oh, the agony!
Ooh, the shame!
To make my privates public by a game!




The Inquisition (What a show)
The Inquisition (Here we go)
We know you're wishing that we'd go away
But the Inquisition's here and it's here to-




Hey, Torquemada!
What do you say?




I just got back from the autos-du-fe,
Autos-du-fe? What's the autos-du-fe?
It's what you oughtn't to do but you do anyway!




Skit scat doodlebac doodle be bay




Will you convert?
NO NO NO NO!
Will you confess?
NO NO NO NO!
Will you revert?
NO NO NO NO!
Will you say YES?
NO NO NO NO!




Now I asked in a nice way
I said pretty please
I bent their ears
Now I'll work on the knees




Hey Torquemada
Walk this way
We got a new game you might want to play!
Pull this handle, try your luck
Who knows, Torq, you might win a buck! (All right)




Put it in the ship.
(In the ship In the ship!)




How we doing? Any Heretics repent today?
Not a one! Nay Nay Nay!
We've flattened their fingers,
We've branded their buns.
Nothing is working!
SEND IN THE NUNS WITH GUNS




The Inquisition (What a show)
The Inquisition (Here we go)
We know you're wishing that we'd go away
So come on all you Heretics and you Xenos
We got some big news for all of yous
You'd better change your point of views today




'Cause the Inquisition's here and it's here to stay!

Not yet they arent, which is part of he current problem. Strictly speaking, the Inquisition technically is not an official branch of the Heralds religion and have no official standing within the church,. Rather, like the Templars, they are merely closely associated with the church. Unlike the Templars, however, The Inquisition was meant from the start to be an international guild run by the continental judges with as much autonomy as possible. Frankly, I was hoping this would add a new layer of power dynamics to the beluaterran gameplay,

I couldn't possibly agree more. Inquisition has so far been a massive underachiever for a guild that was created with those ambitions. It would be awesome to have a powerful international guild with no oversight from any particular realm. Imagine something the size of Royal Rangers, but with strict hierarchy and political agenda.

Something that will cause much fun in the future just happened earlier today and noone noticed. I feel like I stumbled upon Peter Dinklage in white-walker make-up (that's not GoT spoiler btw, just a metaphore/simile/something).
