Engage the enemy at the renegade colony ship.

"A miserable looking place ain't it Sir" the ever repressible Tarqin joined Jolin at the view finder, "so what's the old man got lined up for us this time?"
Giving Tarq a pointed look "the Inquisitor needs us to investigate that abandoned colony ship for suspected cultist activity" pointing to a hulk half submerged in the dusty rock of the planet floor, "this planet was exterminated at an early stage upon the release of a wild virus by some mad priest, however rumours have become more frequent that this rock is housing more than dusty memories and one of the Inquisitors other sources indicates there is enough suspect activity to warrant our intervention."

"Who are we taking with us Sir?" "get suited up and join them in the Siphnus and you'll find out" with a subtle grin Jolin made way to suit up himself.

Jolin climbed on board suited up in fully enclosed vac-command carapace armour naval marine spec, a high impact shotgun slung over one arm and a plasma pistol holstered at his side his power sword sat menacingly on his left hip. Looking around as he secured himself he counted the ... similarly dressed Storm troopers, a stylised I central on their right chest plate and helmet.

7 = 7[d10]

7 troopers armed with hot shot lasguns and himself and Tarq made nine, a small landing party but hopefully more than enough for a supposedly dead world. As the engines powered up Tarq dropped in to the hold and secured a seat his plasma gun needing to be strapped securely.

(Do they reach the planet without incident?)

(Very Likely) Yesand...

"Sir" the pilots voice sounding tinny in Jolin's ear piece, "we'll set you down on the roof of the hulk, zero activity registering so far", as the Vendetta gunship touched down the elite troopers exited and secured the landing zone with quiet confidence, all out the vendetta lifted off to await their call. (can an obvious hatch/doorway in be seen?)

(Very Likely) Yes.

"Open the hatch" (Does it open?)

(50/50) Yes.

Moving into the gigantic hulk they reform in a corridor, (is anything apparent?)

(50/50) No.

"Formation Delta 5, keep silent and watch your step", as they move down the corridor they come across..

Renegade flagship.

a command room seemingly abandoned along with the ship centuries ago except for the unnerving diagrams painted everywhere, "is that blood?" Tarq asked,

(Very Likely) Yes+Twist: Item / Ends the scene

"look away" snapped Jolin, "no one look at these symbols" (do they find anything of interest?)

(Somewhat Likely) Yes.

Homing missile launcher.

Power pack.

Homing missile launcher.

"Sir" one of the troopers uncovers a crate containing homing missiles and launchers along with spare power packs, "looks like someone has been using this as an armoury, take anything we can use and then prep charges I want this room scrapped" orders Jolin. (Do the charges destroy the room without problem?)

(Somewhat Likely) Noand...

As the charges are placed a

Harm / Illness.

odd noises start to funnel through the room, "everyone else get out of here now" snaps Jolin, as they get to the corridor a sudden explosion engulfs the room including the storm trooper setting the charges, his sudden scream cuts off as his mic melts. "Move out" (does anyone/thing appear before the next room?)

(50/50) No.

Probability hideout.

"Sir" one of the troopers gestures Jolin over, "I think this is a door sir?" Jolin calls Tarq over and they examine the hidden access point, "right everyone else take cover, get us in", the trooper detailed attempts to find any trap (does he find one?)

(50/50) Yesand...

carefully he makes safe the wire leading to a bunch of frag and krak grenades which would have incinerated them all. Opening the door, he leads them in too..

Critical Injury: Requires immediate attention; clearly life-threatening if not immediately deadly.

her blades carve him open despite his carapace armour that's some serious weaponry! another body gloved figure attacks from the other side of the room, (does she hit?)

(Somewhat Likely) Yes.

The trooper this time is protected by his armour which contains most of the blow, a odd figure in a bloody white coat over a armoured body glove strikes out from behind one of the large bio tanks,

Negligible: Nick/Scratch/Bruise.

"for the emperor!" shouts Jolin as the squad fight back, (do any of the remaining five troopers hit anyone?)

Minor Injury: Largely superficial; painful and distracting, but not life threatening.

Minor Injury: Largely superficial; painful and distracting, but not life threatening.

Moderate Injury: Hampers action significantly; will require first aid/medical attention.

A blaze of las fire lights up the fast moving females as they acrobatically avoid the worst of it. One takes a couple of minor injuries but the second is knocked from her feet with a cry as a las blast takes her in the shoulder her left arm hanging uselessly. (Does Tarq hit?)

(Likely) Yesbut... +Twist: Item / Ends the scene

As Tarq lights up his Plasma gun something flicked by the mad doctor causes him to change the trajectory of his shot cutting a tank in half and coating the wounded female fanatic in plasma..

Killed.

The spilt bio fluid suddenly ignites, "quick this way" Jolin leads the survivors through another door, (do they all make it?)

(Likely) No.

"Tarqin, cut me a hole in that wall" Jolin points to the far wall, (Does the plasma cut a hole okay?)

(Somewhat Likely) Yes.

Inform / Exterior factors.

Exquisit exotic plants.

"Inquisition I assume?" waving any response away "it doesn't matter they knew you would come eventually" "explain?" growled Jolin, "That mad bastard in the medics coat, he hired me from beyond the rim in lucky space, supposed to be a simple job as body guard with some potential Imperial conflict" pausing to spit more blood, "then we came out here and things got weird, he conducted experiments and the lucky ones dies quick, the rest well, you met Shela" with a nod towards the pieces of now dead tentacle girl. "but the pay was good and the work well I'm no puritan"

after some further questioning Jolin stood, "In the name of the Emperor I declare thee Heretic" "fuc.." a plasma blast removed his head along with his parting words.

"Move on" Jolin, Tarq and the remaining three troopers ventured onwards.

Bizarre research station.

Arrogant .

Vulgar .

reaching another room, they spy the mad medic from earlier although there is no sign of the acrobatic fanatic with the lethal blades there is a hulking brute looking as though he has enough muscles for three large men, turning they see he is some sort of mutant, "Kill it, try and capture the other one" The guards open fire

(Likely) Yes.

Negligible: Nick/Scratch/Bruise.

Luckily the armour saves him but even so it sticks from his armour until knocked clear, something that should not be possible. "Catch him" orders Jolin as they set off in pursuit.

(Do the troopers catch up to him?)

(50/50) Nobut...

Just as he disappears through a doorway a spinning figure fly's the other way into their path

(Somewhat Likely) Nobut...

spinning she avoids their las fire but comes in range of Jolin and his power sword,

(Likely) Yes.

Killed.

the hum of the energy field is broken only by the splash of gore as Jolin cuts her in half. Searching her they find..

Force field generator.

Subspace communicator.

"Interesting no wonder she was hard to shoot" exclaimed Tarq, "I'm more interested in this" Jolin indicated the communicator, "this suggests there is a ship in orbit somewhere or at least is expected, we need to finish this soon". Moving on after the fleeing mad man

Robot shipyards.

A shuttle sits in the centre of a cleared out docking space looking ready to leave through the artfully torn side of the colony hulk. "Siphnus" yells Jolin "Ascention now, Reaver in 5" not awaiting confirmation they continue running towards the shuttle. (Do they get there before it takes off?)

(50/50) Yes.

Only one still lives,

Change / Opposition.

As their gunship hovers into view and they get on board with just Jolin, Tarq and one seriously injured trooper remaining, "take us down there should be obvious signs of the shuttle wreckage?" orders Jolin.

"Empty where can he have gone?" Jolin surveys the barren rocks surrounding the smashed shuttle, "Interrogator, message from the ship, energy signature detected in orbit belief a small ship may have appeared in orbit and left before being picked up by the sensors, it came in the far side of the planet during a meteor shower the sensors were screwed."
"Follow up message, trace possibly a teleport was active?" "damn, can we not catch a break here!" cursed Jolin, "back to the ship, patch me through to the Captain" "Captain were on our way back with the Inquisitors permission I advise we attempt to follow that ship trace with all speed, also requesting full spread of Hellstorm missiles is launched to erase the colony hulk. Quarantine buoys need to be deployed around this world too."
