Sacrificing for the Kill

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

We make it to the genestealer broodlord's lair. There is blood, ichor, and bodies everywhere. Everything I learnt from playing D&D helps now that I'm a space marine. I look up, giving us enough time to notice the broodlord dropping down from the ceiling, and ensuring we're not surprised. Our bolters chatter, spewing explosive rounds […]

The genestealers are defeated, the governor saved. Naturally, he has no hesitation in approving our request to gain access to the astropath to send our warning.
