After retrieving the final coordinates of the eldar world
from the remnants of the ancient temple
and wrested from the hands of giant stone idols that sprang to life,
we perform a mysterious ritual that leaves some of our crew susceptable to corruption.
we take 25% loses to crew, but with medicae and servitors we mitigate the loses.
we blaze a path through the warp until we get to….
The Dread Pearl System in the Koronus sector.
We finally see the Dread Pearl shining in the distance, a planet on the edge of a stellar sized warp storm that spreads across the whole stellar system.
As we go forward, we spot ghost echoes of the ships of Horus on the whispers of the warp.
We see that someone has gotten to the pearl ahead of us! but they seem to be fleeing the planet
in the opposite direction. soon we see why as a giant warp tentacle attempts to swipe us out of space and drive us all mad. If not for the Piloting skills of the Brave Captain, we would have all surely perished.
We enter orbit around the pristine planet. It is a watery paradise planet with verdant archipelagos around the equatorial belt and glittering blue seas. We send our excess crew to occupy the surface and begin beaming our message declaring ownership of the planet.
We are approached by three ships; The Hammer of truth, captained by Baron Djenko Scourge,who we tried to shoot before. Jeramiah Blitz is the captain of the ordained destiny, a light cruiser with many guns. Madam Sharlabelle is the pilot of the Grace of Sofa.
We begin negotiations with Djenko and the Madam Sharlabelle.
Djenko wants to kill the captain Eisenhalix and core his ship. We threaten to open fire on his ship.
Madam Sharlabelle is charmed by the winning smile of our handsome captain. We see in the view screen while talking with her that she has kroot on board and a mysterious man that is reading a 15,000 year old book made of actual paper and leather.
We negotiate with Jerimiah Blitz on the Ordained Destiny, a huge ship that is grossly oversized and overgunned. he negotiates for 40% of the planet’s wealth.
