    I meant to put up a sketch/map of the bridge, in case my description of the layout was a little confusing, but I forgot to get to that last night. I'll do it later today, and in the meantime, if anyone needs the position of anything clarified, just ask.

    A few questions.

    1. We're on the inside of that big adamantine door, right?

    2. Are there any bodies/skeletons? Actually, have we seen any of those anywhere? They probably wouldn't decompose given that it's a vacuum, right? I may be wrong on that.

    3. Is there a traditional big fancy command throne? Because Macharius is all about sitting on probably haunted boss furniture

    4. What does the ship's name translate to in English/Low Gothic? I assume it's in High Gothic, which Macharius and Annika speak.

    Right, there's the drawing. Now, to answer your questions.

    1) Yes, you are. You're on the Bridge itself, said large door is between you and the rest of the ship.
    2) It's not all vacuum, some of it is just bad air due to the life sustainer being gone. It takes a very long time for bones to decay, but they will eventually do it. In vacuum I don't think they would decay, and so in the areas that are hard vacuum, there are still bodies.
    3) Yes! It's the red and gold object in the picture, on the right. It's on a little raised dais, and has a large command console to go with it. Not shown: Many, many cables.
    4) Roughly: The End of All That is Unwritten, or alternatively, End of All Things. The Imperium likes its grandiose monikers.

    (1d100)[92] vs 49. Nope. The ship is clearly playing into the right emotional key for Macharius- duty, honor, command.

    A 53 and a 54 on my last two rolls

    Because I'm curious, is there any sign of emergency breathing equipment having been used. I'm imagining it's kept close at hand like airplane masks. It may not matter but it's possible someone survived.

    Ok - confession time: I don't quite get RT. How much is included in my character package and starting experience, and what do I need to pay for? It's propably in there somewhere, but my mind seems incapable of grasping information contained in pdf's.

    I think it's 500xp to spend at character creation plus whatever Destro gave us. Maybe 3500xp total to spend going by Anika's sheet.

    Various rolls to see if Hannabel can get a clue as to where a black box might be hiding...

    Common Lore (Imperial Navy) vs. Int 40 (1d100)[15]
    Trade (Voidfarer) vs. Ag 48 (1d100)[69]
    and... Search vs. Per 32/2 = 16 (1d100)[58]

    Alright, we're into spoiler-forest land now. I'm not usually a fan of such, but for this sort of thing I feel it's a lot more fun and helps keep player knowledge down to what the characters know. If you hate spoiler forests, I just ask you to bear with me for now.

    Anika and Macharius are asleep, Pytho is awake, but looks a bit strained.

    It has no way to display them itself, you need to plug it into something else. A dataslate would work.

    Edit: Will update once Leon has posted, by the way. I've got work at 1900h, PST, but if I can post before I leave I will. Otherwise it'll be once I get home.

    Right, now that we've got the spoilers in place, rax has informed me that Hannabel intended Pytho to relay all of the following:

    Quote Originally Posted by rax View Post
    "She charged up her batteries, but enemy fire overloaded the shields and breached the hull, causing multiple depressurisation incidents. They then detected enemy boarders but the ship kept fighting. Then we start getting cascading system failures - power linkages to the teleportarium and munitorium get destroyed, life sustainers go offline, then the hull bracing field. Could be enemy raiders, could be mutineers, but someone was being quite systematic."

    "Next, the engines go on full burn and the warp drive starts powering up. No way to tell from the data if that was captain's orders or not, but she was hurting badly, so retreat would have been wise in any case. Anyway, halfway through the sequence, the Terminus takes another big hit - major hull breach and fire in the plasma reactors - so she warps out on fire and with boarders still fighting. After that it's pretty much over. Some more fighting, some more systems damage, then the fires kill the reactors causing bridge to lose main control. The ship exits warp and all the life pods are jettisoned."

    "But... looks like someone was still aboard after that, manually entering priority commands from the bridge command terminal. Looks like they prioritised power to the gellar fields and crew quarters and... yes, the warp drive controls were malfunctioning. I guess whoever was putting commands in knew that, because the Terminus then does an uncontrolled dive into the warp. Systems keep shutting down, then there's a weapons discharge in the bridge lifepod bays, then... nothing. The old girl keeps breaking down until the warp drive fails completely and she drops into the real world millenia later."
    I've put it here so that Macharius and Anika can see it without a full back and forth and me filling up space. It's a bit of a workaround, but it lets me be sure you're not reading each others' spoilers looking for relevant bits when there might also be things you're not supposed to know in there.

    Hannabel thinks going down to the lifepod bays is a good idea, but since Pytho is in communication with Macharius, Hannabel is waiting for his orders first.

    What are you going to try to get the door more open? There's currently no power, so it's not clear if it's broken or simply stuck there by lack of juice. If you want to simply force it, that'd be a Strength test. You can get assistance from one other character, so +10 from that.

    Felidae is done in most major ways, and I've even added a bit of background. I picked the awful stats - the ones with a 20 in them - of course, and built something really good at mostly just the one thing.

    Did Ravia bring her power axe? That might prove useful in the current situation.

    Yeah, if Ravia's got her power axe that will work fine. No need to test, if that's the case.

    This is a combat scene now, so here are the initiative rolls:

    Macharius: (1d10+3)[12]
    The Lancers: (1d10+3)[12]

    IW Marine: (1d10+4)[7]

    the combat between the armsmen and traitor guard will be handled as an opposed test, to save time. Macharius' command will be rolled vs the IW's intimidate. Here's my initial roll, for the first round: (1d100)[79]. I need a roll for Macharius, and I need to know what orders you want to issue to the Lancers.

    EDIT: ok, Macharius and the Lancers act on the same initiative, so that makes that easy. You also both beat the IW, so you go first.

    Ok, need to make a few rolls, here.

    Spoiler: PotatoGolem
    Show
    The Lancers go first. Three shoot with Hellguns, on semi-auto.
    Hellguns: (1d100)[72]
    (1d100)[91]
    (1d100)[67]

    BS 35, with +30 for range, size and semi-auto, means every one of them misses.

    Damage: (1d10+4)[5]
    (1d10+4)[8]
    (1d10+4)[14]
    (1d10+4)[8]
    (1d10+4)[14]
    (1d10+4)[10]


    Then Al fires his plasmagun. He uses the Maximal setting, and also fires semi-auto.
    (1d100)[67] - Hit, thanks to Macharius' +10.

    Damage: (2d10+7)[22](2d10+7)[24] 14 wounds

    The Iron Warrior is up next, assuming he's still standing. (Edit: He is). He fires his bolter on full auto, basically sweeping the room.
    (1d100)[86] - he actually misses too. Poor roll, there.

    the bolter has tearing, so I have to roll a bunch of dice separately.
    (1d10)[7](1d10)[7]
    (1d10)[7](1d10)[5]

    (1d10)[1](1d10)[4]
    (1d10)[7](1d10)[7]

    (1d10)[7](1d10)[1]

    Oh, and I also need... (5d5)[16] - Macharius won the opposed test by 5 degrees. This is for that. The IW takes 16 wounds (which he soaks entirely thanks to armour and unnatural toughness), and a -16 on his next intimidate check.

    Alright, PotatoGolem's been out of contact for the past day or two. I've sent out PMs and stuff, but for now I'll give him the rest of today before I go ahead and update for everyone else. I'm sure he'll be back soon, but the show must go on.
