Skill: Recapitate

Screams resound through the corridor ahead of us. They sound human in origin, but we're not quite sure where they're coming from, as we're still having trouble using our auspexes in the space hulk Mortis Thule. A little frustrated, Brother Lucien flexes his tech-use skills and tries to fix his.

'Have you tried turning it off and on again?'

'Yeah, didn't do anything. I think the influence of the warp is having a strong effect.' So Lucien tries the, apparently, next-best thing: he bangs the auspex against a bulkhead a few times. 'Still nothing.'

We press on regardless, screams now stopped, but it seems that we wouldn't have been in time to save anyone. A couple of minutes further along our path brings us to a grisly scene, where several people have been brutally decapitated.

Brother Lucius moves in to take a look at the bodies, using his medicae skill to examine the bodies, as well as try to determine the cause of the wounds, whether by weapon or creature. 'Sadly, there is nothing I can do for any one them', he says.

'I'm disappointed', says Lucien.

'Brother, you couldn't even fix your auspex. I'm not going to feel bad about not being able to heal decapitation.'
