:DATA LOG THREE:

:From:-Lilith Immaculata:-

:To:-Cannoness Maya Redmist of the order of the crimson shroud:-

THOUGHT OF THE DAY : BLESSED IS THE MIND TOO SMALL FOR DOUBT.

:BEGIN LOG:

Our objective (an invitation into a sealed complex) lay in a rundown building converted into an auction house. Believing that our resources were insufficient to win a bidding war Arch-Militant Dal Hon enacted a plan to fill the surrounding streets with scouts to find and accost the victor.

Entering the premises was more difficult than expected but Lady Joan-Laurie Picard managed to talk us past. After a brief wait the auction began, of the few that won we were amongst them.  Of note were two individuals – a rogue trader by the name of Madame Annabelle who had in her possession a demon artefact  (A toenail) and a feckwadd who had a blessed dagger appropriated by Exploritor  Atari Snes used by Lady picard to win us an invite.

I followed the artefacts as far as i was able. They were last seen being taken into the seven sisters complex that we needed the invItation to enter.

Reconvening with the team as they approached the complex, Lady Picard produced the invite and gained us entry. Inside were the other winners of the bidding war and seven unbound high grade psyker. Our Exploritor proved exceptionally weak willed and gave in to the aura that surrounds such individuals and in his terror attacked us but was dealt with by Seneishal Corlaine , The sisters then induced visions of our destination in everyone but myself and Lady Picard as our will was too strong. 

After which we raced to the  ship d attempted  to divine the path needed to warp travel to the distant and unchartered world. After Navigator Darrius found the path we cast off only to immediately run into a problem. Corlaine had previously antagonized the Footfall's "Regent" who opened fire with footfall's defense batteries. A brief stand-off occured before Void master Eidward raised shields and left orbit and entered the  warp.

Travel was fast . Too fast the Navigatior incautiously bumped a warp shole and the Geller field flickered and an ominous feeling filled the vessel, something known to me as a warp entity had entered the ship. After a prayer to calm the crew i took arch-militant Dal and Lady Picard and several squads of militia men to hunt the fiend after a tense stand-off in the darkened corridors of the aft section the militia men utilzed their auspex devices to track movement in abandoned section. Findnding the beast feeding on a dead crew member we ambushed it and filled it with las fire till it dispersed. After  reclaiming the dead crew and saying a prayer for their souls we continued in the warp.

Until Tech Priest Jeremiah Clercson came to the bridge with an urgent message. Four Enginseers had vanished without a trace.  All team members bar Void master Eidward and navigator Darrius went to investigate.  After a brief investigation and sending  a few servo skulls down the ventilation shaft we tracked the missing Enginseers to the plasma generator where several deserters had kidnapped them. To demand passage of the ship Lady Picard and myself talked them out of the generator room and placed them in the brig.

This ends current log will send another when able.

Adventure 1a: First Steps on Footfall!

Adventure 1: First Steps on Footfall!

After a long voyage across the stars on the La Mouette Noir seeking renown and glory the newly acquired frigate descends and successfully docks of Footfall the last Imperial stronghold before the unknown Koronus Expanse. A tip off from another Rogue Trader (Nihlus Picard);the brother of current RT of the La Moutte Noir, Joan-Laurie Picard, has led the group to Footfall to discover information about  the Foretelling of the Seven Witches, which will lead the great riches for those who can uncover it’s truth. The crew consisting of Darrius Benetek (Navigator), Eidward Dural (Void Master), Dal Hon (Arch Militant), Corlaine Du Voss (Senschal), Lilith Immaculaka (Sister of Battle), Atari Snes (really matt? – it’s hilarious so it’s sticking) & Rogue Trader Joan, take their first steps on solid land in a fair while.

The overwhelming stench of Footfall greets our adventurers as they step into a world of scum and villainy. Walking down the ramparts a group of tall avian like Xenos are intermixing with imperium citizens, a strange sight to some of our adventurers and a heretical sin to others. The four Xenos begin to approach the group and in broken Low Gothic  start to communicate with them. Understanding the Xenos are offering their services in exchange for wares the group tries to make enquiries about Footfall supplying the Xenos with 20 las rifles and grenades in exchange before they are rudely interrupted by another group of intoxicated individuals sprouting hatred   and disgust at the very idea of Human and Xenos of conversing #takebackcontrolofthiscountry #350millionfortheadeptus . In attempts to calm them down  Joan, Corlaine, Eidward try to talk down the individuals, mostly failing to instil logic into the group Dal uses his presence to intimidate and scare off the group, scaring away 4 of the group. Two of the more drunk individuals opt to try their chances and take back control from these snowflakes and attack! Both missing their targets the group fights back with Dal missing his first punch and Eidward losing his footing and almost smacking Joan in the face to be parried expertly back into the direction of the drunkards knocking him down! Knowing that the unreasonable snowflakes aren’t gonna budge the drunk calls out for support from the local Weaverspans Tavern so unite the right and beat down these xenos lovers.

Through all the commotion Lilith’s inner hatred and compulsion to deal swiftly with any heretical xenos attacks to Xenos identified as Kroot and successfully takes off one of their legs. Corlaine understanding the seriousness of the situation calls back to the ship and commands the crew comes a=out and supports their leaders.  Joan’s smooth charm, sincerity and response to the act agains the Kroot manages to convince them the stand with the crew in order repeal the attackers.  As the crown comes closer the crew from the ship start  shambleing out from the loading back  and are somewhat hesistant to follow the instructions of the leadership team or outright doesn’t hear them, ecentually forming a barrier surrounding the leaders. As the drunk mob approaches Atari runs full speed into the crown swinging hs power axe gutting four of them and routing a good chunk in fear.  Unable to follow the orders of the Rogue Trader Lillith tries to convert some of the crew to assist in the massacre of the xenos converting 5  who consider that option. Dal tackles lillith the the ground and is then bound by Dal to stop the mutiny and the 5 soldiers return to their positions. Further threats and gunpower scares off the remaining group and all appears to have eased at the docks.

50xp for everyone!

Congratulations Rogue Trader

Dear Rogue Trader,

I would like to wish you many congratulations on your newest endeavor as the first rogue trader of the newest branch of our families dynasty. It seemed like only yesterday your father bought you into the the bridge and introduced you to the stars of the Koronus Expanse. Even when living at home you eagered for the stars, the glory and the renown of our line of work.

You have served me well throughout the years and now it's your turn to make something new from our old dynasty. Our family name should go someway to helping achieve your ambition but in the void of space you will need more than an old name to pave your way in this galaxy. I know it's not much but I have spared you one of our sword-class frigates and some men to help you keep this old girl going.

I must admit I find your companion choices to be on the interesting side of things but who am I to say anything your keen judgment is how you have got to where you are today. A word of advice however, remember to listen to the advice of those you choose to keep company  and make informed decisions before you act. The life we live is not as black and white as that of those who live within the mainstream Imperium and whatever freedom we gain from life outside imperium boundaries is lost once we are back in Imperium Space.

I know what your thinking, new ship, endless space and places to explore, where do I start? I mean what kind of mentor would I be if I didn't provide you with any potential leads to follow! One of my own agents has informed me of a foretelling on Footfall that would lead to unfathomable riches and renown to any lucky human who can get their hands on the bounty. This may be a successful way to start your dynasty. But then again it could be worth establishing your first colony in the expanse for you to get a foothold for your future endeavors. I have provided you the location of a relatively untouched star system where you could make yourself a new home. This is just advice but feel free to follow your instincts.

Your loving brother,

Nihlus
