Dont think we are in Seattle anymore

To Face the Doom of many ...Squigs

After descending into the bowels of Faldon Kise once again and overcoming their hard earned fears, the characters and their impressive retinue of guardsmen proceed from the central station in Sol Invictus to the old and familiar place of the second station in the line.

Here they leave 3/4 of the assigned fighting force to guard the entrance and a sergeant is set in charge of group.

The scouts (consisting of Hextor and two guardsmen) find the next station to be covered in bird like tracks or perhaps squig tracks. Save the tracks and some chew marks there is no sign of squigs.

The scouts call the rest of the company forth and are partially successful as the static of the sword in Tavares’ procession disrupts the radio signal.

Wardrums is heard in a southern direction and scouts are sent forth while the party makes count of how much dynamite they brought along and starts building a trap by rigging a twenty meter section of tunnel in the direction of the war-drums using all 50 sticks of explosives, connected to a trip wire in the near end of the tunnel.

On the scouting mission the scouts encounter a few squigs which they scare off with one man down, and they carry wounded soldier back. As they administer first aid to the wounded man a horde of squigs attack the party, possible alerted by the survivors of the scouts encounter.

Most of the party fails to Tavares’ storm bolter as a single hail of death reduces the hordes strength by half. The squigs route and run off in all possible directions.

In the belief that the squigs are of no further concern, James do not order the assigned guardsmen to form up and attack.

Ten squigs run in blind panic frenzy towards the tunnel entrance. The party tries to intercept the runners before they reach the trip wire but the attempt proves unsuccessful.

Literally meters before the squigs reaches the tripwire Kainen, Hoax and Tavares charge the squigs as a last-ditch attempt to stop the squigs. They manage to stop a few squigs, but one, the crucial one, triggers the trip wire. The explosion causes a massive cave-in, but while Tavares makes a fever dodge and escapes, Kainen and Hoax are trapped halfway out. Kainen sustains massive injuries and breaks a leg and while the situation looks rather grim Hoax by some miracle “only” gets very battered and loses his consciousness.

After killing the trigger squig, digging the buried ones out, kainen, Hoax, Ragnar and 2 soldiers, escort the wounded back while Tavares, James and Hextor remains after a peptalk from a(the) Sergent.

The party assumes that the orks are alerted if not by the storm bolter then by the explosion or the cave-in and prepares for the oncoming orks.

New Challenges

The Acolytes leave the space hulk and immediately face new challenges on the surface, as the arrival of the space hulk have increased the ork activity on the planet, without the knowledge that behind the sea of orks is some unchallenged malleus activity.

To the knowledge of the acolytes, Sol Invictus has been attacked by a major ork force and a message from St Martin mentions that the tunnels have been flooded. The message does not say whether the tunnels are flooded with water or ork.

Kainen has sendt word to the Adeptus Mechanicus on Scintilla saying that he claims the space hulk.

A company of soldiers has been assigned to James command and the party is currently in the Sol Invictus station trying to figure out the best way to die.

Orks, Orks, Orks and ...? Orks?

The Acolytes stand on a ledge on the middle level of a three level gallery. Along the ledge further ahead is a bunch of orks, pushing and shoving to get through a huge strange star-shaped grating. Above them, the gallery is corroded and old only a few man sized pipes and tubes jut out from under the ceiling all heavily rotted.

The acolytes engaged the horde at the grating and a long battle ensues but finally the last two orks lie scattered on the floor or drifting slowly around in space.

On the bottom level, orks are frantically sealing a huge, heavy door and fleeing from it. The acolytes notice a thumping as of heavy steps, and the door starts to glow red, and finally melts away.

The acolytes finds the best cover they can, as behind the door the looming shape of a dreadnought appears. The dreadnought lumbers through the lower gallery in pursue of the orks.

The acolytes climb up to a pipe in the upper gallery and sees a room at the end of the pipe where a corpse slowly rotates in the airless void. Hoax feels the presence of three warp entities but nothing is shown, and Kainen locates an area with heavy radiation close to the corpse. Kainen also notices that there is some power in the instrumentation on the wall. The corpse seems to be of a recent date and carries the uniform of the Imperial Navy.

The pipe continues ahead and reveals another room where many of the electronics and screens on the walls have power and and the artificial gravity is active.

The screens shows other parts of the hulk, notably a dais where a figure clad in power armour slay orks en masse with chainsword, hammer and the name of the Emperor.

The psyker is increasingly worried as the three ghosts follow him and are joined by two others.

A strange glow emits from further along the pipe where there is evidence of yet another room.
Just out of the room lies the severely reduced remains of an archmilitant; practically only the uniform and two ancient bolt guns remain. Tavares takes the bolter shot and James loots the guns.

The room is an odd spectacle. Here a huge stasis bubble preserves a frozen dramatic scene where a Commissar stands, pointing a gun at a ships Captain who lies prone on the floor. All but ignoring this spectacle, the acolytes spot a hallway from which combat is audible and push towards it.

The hallway ends in a gallery at the center of which, a dais is the current strong point for where a space marine fights a seemingly overwhelming tide of orcs.

The acolytes assist the marine in killing the last orks and the marine presents himself as Brother Marine Lothar Odd of the Salamanders.

Culture Clash

The Demon slayers return to Sol Invictus, and are not eager to report their findings in the tunnels to anyone.

However they seek Mester Attilas, the old missionary and head of the Ecclesiarchy of Sol Invictus, and report their findings, and asks for the Inquisitor. Attilas tells that the Inquisitor is still in the tunnels and the old priest is concerned of the souls of the acolytes and orders them to undergo a pieous cleansing, to which the Acolytes reluctantly aggrees.

The first cleansing goes with out any event but during the following marathon prayer and meditation, James falls asleep.

Through this acute danger to his soul, the priest resorts to a harsher purification. This ends in disaster when the action is interpreted as an attack by James. After a lengthy fight the priests overcomes the guardsman and puts him into a meditation box.

After the others end their meditation, they are presented with news that a member of the cadre is lost. The Arbitrator speaks the case of the guardsman and after a discussion Mester Attilas agress to set James Mitchell free if The Psyker cannot find any taint on him and that the holy weapon does not reject him.

James are approved by both means and let out, however Mester Attilas charges the Arbitrator with the care of the guardsman.

James and Kainen spends some days in hospital while the others hunt for equipment. After recovering James reports their findings to Mester Arl and recieves an tinfoil scroll, and a bill of exchange for 5000 thrones for a job well done. He recommends that the note is exchanged in the malfian subsector, and thanks James for the effort.

The others continue their shoppingspree.
