Fighting Back the Eldar

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

We have the Luminous Reproach! The artefact sword it was our mission to recover is in our possession, plucked from the Inquisitor herself, frozen in time with the demon she was fighting and whose head the Luminous Reproach was thrust in to. We also have a book, another artefact The Inquisition will be rather interested […]

Restart [y/N]

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Entering the psyker transport now lodged in the space hulk, we get a reappearance of a ghostly girl. She starts talking to us, mostly inconsequential ramblings, and asks, 'You're not from The Inquisition, are you?' 'Why, ye...' '...You'd better not be.' That sounds ominous. It's good I was interrupted, or we'd have been rumbled for […]

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 […]

The Difference Between Me and You is That I'm Not on Fire

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Working our way deeper in to the space hulk, away from the slavering warp beasts that killed the unnamed Space Marine, we find ourselves facing a rune-covered black ship, one Mordecai recognises. This kind of ship ferries psykers to be sacrificed to the God Emperor, the carved runes designed to suppress psychic energies. Whilst the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Getting Tooled Up

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Minding our own business, a squad of Inquisitorial Stormtroopers arrive. As imposing as they look, Dariel puts it in to perspective. 'We've no worries about being shot', he murmurs, referring to their notorious aiming abilities. Luckily, they aren't here to shoot us, instead informing us that our services are required. A quick shuttle trip in […]
