We Weren't Expecting That

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

'Drop your weapons and no one will be hurt!', shouts Matthias towards the unidentifed but on fire figures in front of us. 'We surrender!' The only person of the four not engulfed in flames is clearly intimidated by my keen senses and rather vicious flamer, but perhaps not finding Matthias's sense of humour to be […]

Don't Skip to the End

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

'Let's get a recap of the last session. Who remembers what happened?' 'We found the sword and completed the adventure.' 'Okay. If any of you can tell me where you found it I'll award the XP and we can finish the adventure.' 'In a stone!' 'In a skeleton's hand!' 'You're both wrong. So you're standing […]

Rest in Peace, Agamemnon

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Not long after facing the piratical Eldar we encounter a couple more warp beasts. Those of us who aren't feared in to fleeing make quick work of the doggies, as they appear at sufficient distance for guns to rip through them before they close to biting range. A few dozen warp beasts apparently nearby take […]

Acolytes With Guns Are Dangerous

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Pushing deeper in to the space hulk briefly separates us from Brother Sergeant Agamorr, our Death Watch Space Marine guardian. His hulking size, exaggerated by power armour, keeps him on the other side of a rather small door whilst we scout ahead. Brother Sergeant could bash his way in, but we'd rather not attract too […]

Introducing Warp Beasts

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Boarding the space hulk isn't so bad, there's even a breathable atmosphere. It's a bit parky, though, and no powered systems to heat up the amalgamation of ships or even provide much light. We are relying on our own instruments to help guide us. The choice of docking platform is an old imperial ship, lost […]

Crossing Swords with the Boss

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Theodosia is waiting for the acolytes. He's not really expecting them, and actually surprised to see them still alive after sending hired guns to kill them, but they have just blown a security door off its hinges and walked in to his secret basement. Now he's going to do his best to make sure they […]

Bypassing Security Using Brute Force

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Getting in to Theodosia's inner sanctum may not be entirely straightforward. The acolytes have followed the trail of the assassin and influential cult member to a church on Ambulon, but now a locked basement door stands between them and discovering the truth. Never fear, though, as Matthias has trained in security and is confident he […]

Sharp Question

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

On deciding their next course of action, the acolytes consider the information they've gathered so far. 'We could make enquiries about the Serrated Query', suggests Xerxes. 'Or the other group', says Matthias, 'the one with the weapon and mark as their symbol'. 'Yes, that's the Serrated Query.' 'No, they have the question mark', Matthias clarifies, […]

It's Blindingly Obvious Now

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

'We got some night-vision goggles and flash grenades in one of our great strategic decisions.'

Or We Could Meet Him There

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

'We're following Theodosia.' 'Where's he going?' 'That's what we're trying to find out.'
