Heretic Hunt

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.

Another Day In paradise
I thought i had seen it all

Canto thought he had lucked out!
Not only had he screwed over all his Superiors, he still had a job!

Although this new job would require even more from him, the thought of bringing the Emperor’s justice upon his enemies was satisfying.

For the first time since he arrived on the hive world, on which he spent most his career, he packed up his most prized possessions in his pack and made to leave. He hurried to the starport even though everyone he knew about had been rounded up and punished for the their heresy. He didn’t doubt for a second that in a scheme as big as it was someone was still alive and looking for revenge.

He made it to the ship that would take him to orbit. It stuck out on the pad with the big inquisitorial markings on it. After a bit of standard paper work related nonsense he was let on and told to sit anywhere. Canto wasn’t used to flying, let alone void flight, and after a career that spanned undercover work, front line riot control and finally investigation work he had taken up Iho sticks. He was very seldom without one which was good cause he damn well needed one now. He decided he would get some scoop on where he was going and got friendly with the co-pilot of the orbital transport who told him that once they landed the ship was headed to Holy Terra to which Canto responded “Well its all happening today isn’t it?”

Once on Terra and after he dealt with the absolute bureaucracy nightmare he reported to a room for briefing in which he hoped would give him some answers. He imagined he would struggle for a while, perhaps being dead weight even. His team would no doubt be the best of the best and he would have to make an awkward fit until he found his place amongst them.

Oh how little Canto knew about his own fate would make him chuckle to himself for years to come.

The room for the meeting seemed to be housed in some sort of tech palace. At this point canto deducted either the inquisitor was employing some sort of subterfuge perhaps a safe house in the guise of a tech priests workshop. Or the inquisitor had a tech background himself. It turned out to be the latter after seeing a white haired woman lead there by a guide. The woman was clearly a member of the Sororitas judging by the facial markings and clearly in the wrong place that would have blown a cover . Canto smiled “The inquisitor must be mechanicus related then,” he mused to himself. He then proceeded though the door after the Sororitas after the guide had cleared. Canto was never offered a guide but who needs one.

As he walked in he saw the Sororitas sticking out like a sore thumb and followed her knowing after having a guide she probably had better directions and also that she was likely to be on the same team as him. He was right again.

Inquisitor Lucius Drake was in fact augmented but some of them were modular which was a new one on canto although he hadn’t really spent much time amongst them so he guessed he shouldn’t be surprised. The others and him were then led off to another room and they were given their mission.

The mission was to investigate an inquisitor and a rogue trader. The inquisitor had been reported dead but also reported alive. The rogue trader tried to become planetary governor after all the competition had been assassinated. Both individuals were on the planet at the time which was quite the coincidence.

He then met the team. In the briefing he leaned against the wall so he could watch his fellow acolytes and try sum them up. There was two void born a man and a women he saw them first their tall forms rising above the others.

The male void born he understood to be called mortecai he looked armed and ready for a fight. His equipment looked military but not of type you see on the guard recruitment, maybe navy. Definitely some one to be friends with.

The void born women seemed a little tense and cast glances around the room often. He was told that she was a psyker. He had never dealt with psykers much but knew that the imperium used them for communication. But he also knew he didn’t know everything and seeing how she was on this particular team she must have some more tactical skills. She went by the name Rimwena Verium he decided to give her space since she was clearly nervous.

Then their was the sororitas. Paz Castella stood straight and purposeful as he had seen in all of her adepta. He had dealt with the adeptus sororitas many times in the jurisdictional nightmare which was heretics. He often found himself in joint operations with them when shock mauls and shotguns wouldn’t quite cut it. His life had been saved many times by members of their order and vice versa. As he made his judgement they caught each others eyes and he gave a respectful nod which she returned. From his experience he knew she would be a asset to this group.

Then there was the tech priest Noctine Karpath a man of logic and metal. Members of the mechanicus where notoriously hard to read having very little body language and nigh on inhuman thought patterns. Although he did notice an almost reverence of the inquisitor. It also seemed the inquisitor forgot his name therefore he must have known him maybe a master/apprentice set up he didn’t try to guess he would get this one wrong.

An ecclesiarchy priest. Canto had been involved with these people as well. For Canto they were at worst a massive problem and at best a total nuisance. He only knew of one priest that didn’t fall in to these categories. He was an inspiring man and often went out of his way to help the poor and needy he was forever vigilant in his duty. He often reported fellow priests to the arbites for wrong doings which often led to arrests or punishment. His wise words had helped canto on his undercover endeavours many times. He died mysteriously on ecclesiarchy ground and the arbites where not allowed to see the body or the scene. Definitely something happened there that somebody didn’t want let out. Turned out to be connected to the mutant drug ring so Canto had avenged his friend which gave him some degree of happiness. Canto had a distaste for priests and didn’t care for his name this priest would have to prove himself to him.

Lucius drake informed them that they were to be accompanied by Guardsmen but something in his behaviour and manner came across to him as dark sorrowful humour. Canto wondered if it would be a funny joke. It probably would be he had low standards. The priest led the way thinking himself in charge somehow (even though we were given a guide) this didn’t surprise Canto and was exactly what he was expecting. They then made their way to the Inquisitional supply depot where we were to board our transport get supply’s and meet or guardsmen.

It was all located on a high level platform it was decorated almost like a plaza. As they arrived Rimwena hurriedly asked the guide where the requisitions was he pointed and before he finished speaking she was gone like the wind charging at it like her life depended on it. He looked around to see if he was alone in his confusion. He wasn’t.

A few shaken heads later we got the punch line to Lucius joke. It wasn’t funny. Turns out only one really shaken guardsmen survived the trip. All the others died or where “unfit for service” according to the paper work which said he was a medic. A medic…. A MEDIC!?.
Canto looked at the uncontrollably shaking man who couldn’t keep his hands still and thought “what do you mean fit for service?”. The Priest started commanding the man as if it was his right also confusingly started calling him Rodger even the paper work said his name was Tapt. As the priest and poor guardsmen moved away to the requisition counter he stopped tapt and gave him a Iho stick to try calm the devastated Guardsmen. He gratefully accepted and put in his mouth. Canto never saw him light it he was gone before he could offer him a light. Canto then turned to the tech priest moving back the way we came he guessed he was going back to report the guardsmen condition and left it at that.

He turned round to see who was still around who was still with him. Paz, Mortecai and……
HOLY THONE! when did Rimwena get here! She now had a long rifle it didn’t look like a projectile weapon . Whatever it was she was dam happy about it and smiled happily to her self. He was impressed with her sneakiness. The fright gave him such a shock he decided he need a dam iho stick. he was lighting it when he noticed Paz and Rimwena holding there hands out for one he Sympathetically obliged. He lit theirs and was about to light his when there was an awful Screeching noise.

Cantos head snapped about looking trouble but found it was unbelievably the priest and tapt. All he could see was smoke and the guardsman running into it while the man at the counter ran about trying to find out what was going on. The priest just stood there looking self righteous unsurprising. Moments later the guardsmen reappeared with a large weapon with a large tank attached to the bottom of it. Canto didn’t know what it was but he doubted it was a water pistol. In some sort of bizarre smoke drowned ceremony the priest preformed a holy right on the guardsmen for his theft and charged him the weapon for it. The priest then asked the stressed and apparent unobservant man at the counter for more items before the smoke had even settled. They then retreated to the transport were thankfully they stayed.

Canto finally lit his Iho stick and looked at his current company who had already finished there. The three (Rimwena having disappeared again) of them asked for what they wanted and found the selection was vast due to being on Terra. He got a combat shotgun to replace is standard issue shotgun which was a nice and asked if he had any thing that can help him with a bad day at work half jokingly the man dropped a hallucinogenic grenade on the counter. Canto appreciated humour and took the grenade with thanks. He waited for mortecai and paz to finished at the counter. Paz went straight to the transport maybe to berate the priest who knows.

Mortecai and canto made there back to transport cantos humour had returned and his deduction of mortecai was correct they began to talk about the mission and how they should process. Until Noctine reemergence from the way they came. The tech priest had new implants and now resembled some sort of floating squid monster found on some death worlds. Canto stopped walking and stared as the tech priest made his strange hovering way across the plaza to the transport.

Canto decided he needed more Iho sticks after watching such a display. He went back to get some for him self for Paz and for Rimwena just in case they needed them. Canto boarded the transport raised and eye brow at the priest who stared arrogantly back. Canto decided to save a iho stick for this flight he was gonna be in more need of them soon.

Once on the ship canto and mortecai decided to go to the local bar to get information. Rimwena had gone again hopefully doing some thing useful he wasn’t sure where Paz or the now floating tech priest had gone. The priest and the medic were no where to be found and that suited canto fine after what he saw on the plaza. Mordecai Navigated the ship well which was good cause canto wasn’t. They found the bar not far really from there room. They Started a conversation with some of the ship born locals. Canto couldn’t get a read on them but they still got good info from them they sat for a drink with them for a bit and where about to leave when the priest and the medic came in.

Canto didn’t know what happened but people where not happy with the priest. I might of had some thing to with the amount of drink ration tickets and Iho stick he had, and more importantly the lack of tickets and iho sticks the crew had. Canto had guessed the priest had gotten them off them some how. The saw Paz at he bar trying to get the the upset crew drinks the bar agreed but only after a clearly socially uncomfortable silence trade of iho sticks. he leaned over to mortecai and said “we ought to leave now” mortecai said we should speak to them first and take with us to find the tech priest. He changed his mind after the next event.

They where just approaching Paz when the priest turned to them with a mouth full of iho sticks and a hand flamer in the other hand. Canto needed a second to take this in he just couldn’t believe what he saw in the last two hours let alone what he was seeing now. He managed to to tear is eyes off the priest to mortecai who just made to leave with hand motions for him to follow. He jogged to catch up and just as the bar doors closed they Blasted open again unleashing the sound of a loud bang and smashed glasses followed by silence.

They moved a bit faster than normal to their room where they hoped to find the tech priest. They entered the door and found him. One of his new mechanical squid like arms had the remains of food on it oh yeah and he was floating of COURSE. Canto decided he actually going insane. Canto just stared at Noctine as he floated and let mortecai do the talking. even though Canto wasn’t really listening he could tell Mortecai was finding this situation difficult as well. Thankfully the tech priest decided to land which made Canto relax A bit more. That was until Rimwena came out of the shower cubical behind and scared the daylight out of him and everyone.

They discussed the findings turns out Rimwena but her stealth abilities to good use and tailed some tech priests who went behind a door she could get past and needed the tech priests help. Canto and Mordecai shared what they found. Techpreists going on this ship seemed to have different training than the standard.

They all decided to go and investigate. As they left they met Paz a mildly injured Tapt and a very injured Priest judging on the bandaged burns the hand flamer had exploded in the priest hand and face. As a result the priest had turned into a bandaged muffled idiot who couldn’t see where he was going. Oh yeah and he is still coming with us of coarse.

The whole group got to the door and split up one team would go in while the other sneaked in below. so Canto, Mordecai, Rimwena and Noctine went in and met four confused tech priests they went about distracting them while Rimwena tried to lift a clearly alien pistol but knocked over about everything on the same table. The four tech priests turned and pointed plasma pistols at the psyker. Thankfully Mordecai is a genius and convinced them that we where carers for this estranged psyker. Mean while Noctine tried to get more info. In the end they left the room with their lives and canto wasn’t sure whether they got any information.

They walked past a poorly seated decking panel and the moaning cry of which was probably the priest. Canto tried to find find him (for everyone elses safety) but failed and just left.

The team in the vents was still there waiting so they might have more luck i guess they would have to wait for their return meanwhile it was time for an iho. After the days events. Canto was no longer worried about fitting in. He was more concerned about his health. This new job wasn’t going to be about hard work it was going to be hard enough to survive it.

Briefing

I never thought I would actually see Holy Terra with my own eyes. To think that I stood on the same planet where the God-Emperor himself dwells! Not even the never ending stream of paperwork could ruin this feeling. Unfortunately there was no time to visit any of the holy places for I was here on important inquisitorial business. Almost as soon as I navigated past the bureaucracy I was escorted to where the briefing was to be held.

It was a rather grand manor with all the opulence one would expect of such a place on Holy Terra but I was ushered into the bowels of the building into a expansive workshop with techpriests and advanced machinery everywhere. It was there we first saw Inquisitor Lucius Drake, working on some small object before showing us to a meeting room. The briefing was rather short and to the point. Two suspected heretics, Inquisitor Silvanto Quin and Lord-Captain Ventium Harlocke. Harlocke is a prominent rogue trader and mercenary who now commands his own battle group of ships. The deals he signs with those he’s tasked to protect include clauses to recompense any losses he suffers… and some more, turning every ship lost into a profit. A lucrative business to be sure. Apparently Drake has information which leads him to believe he may be treasonous and perhaps even in league with the dark gods. I find Inquisitor Quin to be the more intriguing suspect. A decorated member of the Ordo Malleus with several daemonic incursions halted by all accounts he is a staunch defender of Man. However there are conflicting reports. There are records and eye witness accounts that claim that Silvanto Quin died fighting a Saint, which if true mark him as the gravest of heretics. Our job is to investigate these people, find evidence of their heresy and bring them the God-Emperor’s justice. I will be honest, I don’t think Inquisitor Drake expects us to survive let alone succeed. After a short discussion with the other members of the team we made Inquisitor Quin our first target.

Speaking of the team, they are certainly a curious lot. The one that I later learned was a psyker caught my eye initially. She was rather tall, pale and just a little “off”. Rimwena I believe her name was. Being so close to one that channels the power of the warp unnerves me, I hope for all our sakes she uses her power wisely. There was another similarly tall and pale but he did not give me the same feeling of “offness”. I admittedly do not know much about him. Then there is an ex-Arbites by the name of Canto. Having someone with previous experience of investigation will no doubt be a great boon but he seems too happy about everything, smiling when it isn’t appropriate. It’s beginning to disturb me a little. The techpriest seems to know Drake personally, although I’m not sure if Drake wants to know him. We were originally promised that a regiment of guard would be made available to us but due to “complications” which led to almost all of them being killed in action or declared unfit for service we were left with Field Medic Tapt. I can’t help but look upon him with pity, he has had a hard life.

Our final member, I am reluctant to admit, is one Priest Ratcliffe. His behaviour has been most unacceptable for a man of his position, extorting what meagre belongings the poor have claiming that the God-Emperor demands it, then lining his own pockets with his loot. Then when I demand that he cease his outrageous acts he has the temerity to call me a heretic! It would seem that the God-Emperor works in mysterious ways however as when he attempted to taunt those he robbed by lighting their cigarettes with his hand flamer, it exploded in his face horrifically scarring him. I hope this teaches him some humility.

Our journey to Quin’s home world has been interesting thus far, but apparently Rimwena believes the techpriests on board to be rather suspicious. Given that we are inquisitorial acolytes I think it’s best if we inquire…

Report

The Journey to Roanoke has been eventful. While I infiltrated the superiors of the ship, Canto and Mordecai gained the trust of the regular crew. We gathered information about Roanoke 3 to help our investigations upon landing. I need no tell you the information we gathered as you will already know the basic information we acquired. While this happened Verium had been investigating the on board Tech Priests and, as logic would dictate, came to myself, Canto and Mordecai to help work out what they were doing. It was at this point that the others arrive to the group.

During our time investigating, there had been an altercation between Castella and Ratcliffe. The specifics of which I shall not go into detail with since you have much better things to occupy your time, but the basics are that Ratcliffe secured many rations from the workers of the ship, in the name of the Emperor and Castella saw this as exploitation for Ratcliffe’s personal gain. This ended with the spontaneous explosion of Ratcliffe’s hand flamer, causing damage to his face and to 8881273409352 (hereby to be referred to as 352). Both have since received medical attention.

After they rejoined the group I devised a plan to investigate the Tech Priests and test the effectiveness of our group. We split into three groups, myself, Canto and Mordecai to talk to and distract the Priests. Verium, Castella and 352 to stealth in and recover any hidden data, and Ratcliffe to guard the exit. I expertly conversed with them and looked over their information to gather anything that might be heretical and ultimately found no such things. Verium tried to steal a weapon, for information, but Mordecai manage to spin that she was a useful but unreliable tool of ours and Canto and myself backed up this facade, giving us a good reason to leave. This is everything that has happened on our mission so far.

Summary
Canto, Mordecai and Myself gathered information on Roanoke 3.
Ratcliffe was injured in an accident.
352 was damaged but is still operational.
Tech Priest were investigated and cleared of any suspicion.

Mordecai
Stream of consciousness

That lady with a face tattoo seems fairly prestigious, better see how other people act around her. Why is she carrying all that metal around? At least she seems more stable than the priest. I hope he doesn’t set himself on fire again, though it was fairly funny, if you disregard the scars that he’ll have once the bandages come off. We could really use his other flamer if shit hits the fan, like it probably will if we continue with this pace.

The psykerlady seems almost as prone to accidents as father R. Have to see if I’m able to prevent her from getting us in trouble again. Maybe that smirky arbites could keep an eye on her. Facetattoo has priest under control hopefully: with the aid of the guardsman it should be alright. I probably should keep an eye on him, he seemed witty enough to anticipate the problems – could probably learn from him. Plus he seems to know how to treat injuries, likely will come in handy.

Going after a rogue trader and an inquisitor with these people seems like a potential shit show, not that I bring much to the table either. Why did they pick me anyways? Maybe there are some xeno contacts and they needed someone who won’t shoot on sight. What is Drake trying to achieve by sending only us? There has to be a point, right? And I’m not sure, but it really seemed like those machine priests weren’t doing any standard modifications on those lasguns. Our techpriest could’ve handled that a bit more smoothly. Throwing the ball to me in the middle was fairly awkward.

If we’re actually going to try to look into the bottom of this mess, I hope someone takes the reins and starts organizing the information. The whole deal with assassins everywhere, people disappearing and appearing later seemed awfully convoluted. My brain felt numb after the first 10 minutes of the lecture Drake gave. No one else asked questions either, I wonder if they feel as lost.

Hopefully we’ll get out of this whole ordeal alive. Not sure if I want to go back to Polaris, might try my luck in different areas. Who knows, maybe I’ll find myself operating a voidship someday – one can dream.

Ratcliffe Ledger Entry 42 - 001 - Wiggins!
Red

Red – Talked to Inquisitor Drake, seduction attempt failed.

Black – Sent to investigate Inquisitor Quinn undercover as his acolytes,
clearly Inquisitor Drake has great faith in my abilities!

Black – Met with Imperial Guard escort. Sole survivor Guardsman number
something something 352 something something Taty. Now called
Wiggins. A much better name, I’m sure the Emperor agrees.

Black – I decided to talk Wiggins under my wing, nurturing and teaching him
in the ways of the Emperor for the good of his soul. In exchange he
presented me with a heavy flamer after I expressed an interest in one.

Red – Boarded our transport, immediately proceeded to do my duty to the
Emperor and the crew’s souls, assisted by Wiggins. The crew while
devout were poor.
Total Income: 200 Food Rations.
80 Alcohol Rations.
10 Packs of Cigarettes.
Overall not worth the effort, likely due to the meddling incompetence
of the Adepta.

Red – Retired to the local bar to spread goodwill and gather information for
the mission. Once again the Adepta harassed me, trying to set the
feeble minded and suggestible crew against me. While trying to reassert
my Emperor given authoritah over them my flamer suffered a minor
malfunction causing myself and Wiggins slight discomfort.

Black – I deemed the wounds insignificant and proceeded to aid the party with
much needed direction as we investigated some suspect Mechanicus.
At great risk to myself I nobly volunteered to patrol the surrounding corridors
to secure the perimeter during the investigation. Nobody dared to
challenge me.

Red – Due to bad information from the psyker we inconvenienced several
innocent Mechanicus (cleared by our own tech priest) loyal to our own
Inquisitor Drake.

Trooper: 88801273409352 private log 1

I have no idea whats happening.

First I was on that ship and then somehow I’m on Holy Terra standing under the golden statues of saints and heroes waiting to meet my new commanding officers and well, my mind is not one that cannot question the workings of the great inquisition.

My commanders are like no one I met before. Everyone back on Cadia worked to such a hierarchy, you knew what you had to do because what you did helped your CO and that helped their CO and so on and so forth. I have no idea how what orders my commanders are following but if there adepts they know better than me.

There’s Techpriest Nocturn, he’s the first techpriest to not instantly berate me about the state of my lasgun, so thats a plus in my book.

Then theres sir Mordecai, can’t tell much about him now but form the looks of him he killed his way here too. It’s always good to know someone like that is running the show.

The next is Investigator Canto, we only had MP’s back on Cadia but from what i’ve heard the adepts say we’re investigating something so I know why he’s here.

There’s Sister Castella, Only thing I ever heard about the Sisters was the wroth they brought down on the enemies of the Emperor but this one seems … nice ? If her actions are guided by the Emperor I shall follow her dutifully.

Then there’s Father Ratcliff, he seems the most adamant to use me at his disposal, but thats life in the Guard for you. His priestly ways are new to me, But Confessor Andro at the academy said that the men of the church are here “to lead us not to tell us the secrets of the universe”. This whole life is alien to me so I’ll stick with the priest I think, I don’t want to loose my way in these strange times.

Finally there’s mistress Verium. I don’t trust her. I lived with the eye of terror starring me down for most of my life and then that time on the ship. All I can say is there’s something wrong in this galaxy and it pours out of her eyes, I don’t like looking at them.

Anyway I’m of to stand guard while the priest gets a drink, Walking a drunk priest home what could go wrong ?

Investigation report - 1 -

REPORT AS FOLLOWS.

Evidence gathered.

Arbites report on Avund Quins death.

Avund Quins body (Ask the priest)

Avund Quin was shot point blank many times by las weaponry shortly After riot massacre.
however blood was at the scene las wounds don’t bleed. Someone elses blood?

Further investigation required.

Avund Quins body did in fact show extensive las burns to the torso area defiantly cause of death.

Autopsy showed signs of drugs in the his system. It would make sense to check the local black market for a seller he might have useful information for use.

Note of concern.

The priest continues too be reckless. He believes he is doing the emperors will but is more interested in his on welfare and extorting the already poor. His latest gambit is to sell the organs of Avund Quin on the black market. I maybe forced to apprehend him if he continues to put this investigation at risk i will not hesitate to unleash the emperors justice.

If such events come to pass then i will have to contact inquisitor drake so that it may take due course through the correct channels.

No one escapes the Emperors law.

Report

Upon arrival at Roanoke 3 we met 6319, the man you sent to be our chauffeur, who took us to where we would be staying. We then came up with a strategy that would best use our time and skills. Father Ratcliffe would head with 352 to investigate the possible death of Avund Quin, Castella, Verium and Canto would head to the Arbites to speak with Captain Florenza and myself and Mordecai would acquire/build equipment to outfit our team.

We found much information on the Hyniium Mines revolt, including the involvement of a Slaaaneshi cult. We also found that Quin and Avund were called in to kill these cult members, and that were both put up for promotion after the revolt was quelled. Quin was transferred and Avund was supposedly killed when revenge was taken against those who stopped the revolt. The Captain was told not to investigate these deaths but disobeyed and found and killed those responsible.

The death of Avund was confirmed when we found his body. An autopsy showed that he was killed but multiple point-blank las gun shots to the chest. The toxicology report also showed us that he had taken enough drugs at some point to leave permanent marks upon himself. Further investigation needs to be done but Avund was most definitely killed here on Roanoke 3.

I have seen potential in 6319 and have ordered him to accompany us in our investigations, mainly as our driver.

Ratcliffe has once again caused some amount of a ruckus. He attempted to sell the body parts of Avund Quin and then burned down an illegal market we were investigating. This seems to have caused much tension with the other acolytes.

Summary
Avund is dead.
Ratcliffe has caused discord in our group.

Sister Castella's Log - 2
Musing outside a black market

I still can’t believe that after the flamer incident Ratcliffe is yet to learn any humility. Imagine being as bold as to say to an influential priest from Holy Terra itself that they have “quaint” ideas. I live in hope that the flogging they gave him at least got the message across. I hope Rimwena and Noctine find what they are looking for soon, the sheer poverty and despair in this place is overbearing. Not to mention the criminality of course but looking around, can you blame them? I guess I’ll recap the facts while I wait, might notice a detail I missed.

Arrived at Roanoke 3, met local guide Karpath 6319-13 who was to act as our local guide and driver. Nice fellow, perhaps lacking a bit in subtlety. Come to think of it isn’t Karpath Noctine’s surname. Most likely a coincidence. Arrived at the boxes we would come to call “home” during our investigation here. Tapt unfortunately didn’t have an assigned room, an oversight we should really see to. Soon split into three groups to pursue leads. Myself, Rimwena and Canto investigated records at the local Arbites precinct and questioned Captain Florenza. Ratcliffe and Tapt would investigate the death of Avund Quin. Noctine and Mordecai investigated more generally finding a scrap shop that served well to equip us.

Our investigation proved rather fruitful. The riots here were apparently provoked by servants of The Prince of Pleasure. Said servants were purged by Avund and Silvanto, which earned Silvanto a off world promotion. Avund however was murdered in reprisal. Tapt’s autopsy of Avund was quite thorough. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen a corpse so meticulously disassembled. Cause of death was multiple las shots to the chest. Also significant traces of drugs in his system, enough to cause permanent deformation.

Which is a problem because Avund Quin is apparently alive.

Perhaps we should follow up the drug lead while we are in this lawless place. It’s a long shot but I want to get what information we can before leaving.

……..

What the hell was that noise!?

By the Emperor what has he done this time!?
