    There's a big main hatch from the shuttle, right? Any other exits? I'm thinking it might be useful to have someone sneaking around that they don't know about - though Sol has already spoken to them, so I guess that would have to be someone else. Awareness: (1d100)[19]

    EDIT: A good roll, but Sol's Awareness is vs 8.

    Hey guys.

    Just so you're aware, over the next couple weeks my posting may be a bit scarce.

    I get married on Saturday and then go on honeymoon in Europe for a week and a half.

    Sorry; not sorry.

    Also, Awareness: (1d100)[81] vs TN 57 - Perception 37 (+10 Heightened Senses) (+10 Auto-Senses)

    Fate Reroll: (1d100)[91] ... screw you, Fate.

    Also, since this is the first time I'm using a Fate point, what do we qualify as a "game session" for this game and Fate point recovery? So I know how careful I need to be with Fate points.

    The way I'm doing it for my Rogue Trader game is that Fate Points refresh once per in-game day, except during ship voyages and downtime between adventures. In those cases, you get one set of fate points for the duration.

    Hey, congrats. I got married last year, so I can imagine the semi-organized madness leading up to the event. Have a nice vacation, and enjoy not having any wedding planning to do.

    I hear I need to fail awareness: (1d100)[17] vs like 17 (I'm not trained and have a 34 perception)?
    Back on my normal work schedule. Updates will happen when I can finangle them at work or on my nights off on Monday and Friday (unless I get caught up doing something else).

    Your understanding is appreciated.

    Oh, since it might matter if you decide to fight here and now, the turrets are heavy bolters. Won't do much to the armour on the Shark. Anything else is probably fair game.

    Well, that's earlier than I was expecting us to reveal our deception, but it looks like murder time may be imminent. How many guards are there?

    Sol just told them that we only know the captain because we tried to rob him and he got back up, vs the existing lie that we know all this backstory with him, the Inquisition, and the Observatory.

    I never said we "only" knew him from that - just that that was how it ended. I don't understand the inquisition lie though, so someone else will have to tell that one.

    Trying to imply that the old Captain was flipped by the Inquisition at some point and was working with them to save his own life. So the people who 'attacked' us might be with the Inquisition as far as we know. As Heidric works for these guys https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Phaenonites it's close enough to something that might be true.

    Obviously it's all bull**** and Heidric probably can't prove any of it, but it gets us in the door and away from the heavy bolter turrets.

    I was thinking of handing over the papers we took from the captain, but we're really just metaphorically staying one step ahead of the bolters.

    Whatever works. I am absolutely ok with someone starting the fight instead.

    You guys do realize that, as soon as he starts reading the papers, the cat's out of the bag, right?

    If he reads in the journal about the Inquisition, he'll know then that that's how we know about the Inquisition.

    Basically, giving you guys a chance to stop the psyker from nuking him as soon as he's distracted and starts reading the papers. Because that's about to go down.

    Wait, the inquisition thing was true? I thought we'd made that up from whole cloth.

    I far as I know it's a lie. But the old Captain's papers won't mention that he was 'working' with them.

    Edit - I don't think that's neccesarily proof one way or the other, but it certainly might look suspicious.

    From his journals and notes:

    "The papers were a collection of notes and journal entries, all scrawled by the same hand. The notes clearly belonged to the dead man, referencing various passages from the other pages. He wrote of how he'd come across the original journal, written by someone he referred to as The Archivist, in the Library of Knowing on Fenksworld. He had had started to copy it, before being interrupted by one of the Inquisition's occassional attempts to shut down the library. Agents of the Inquisition had infiltrated the library and made off with several volumes as "evidence," the journal amongst them. The captain had fled, taking his notes with him, turning his ship away from the normal routes and making for the Koronus Expanse. Along the way he continued to study what he had copied, fragments of journal entries that revolved around something called the Argent Observatory."

    Yeah, they'll realize it's bull**** soon and we're going to have to kill a bunch of people. I guess Amon Ram is going to chop the captain, I'll take out the meltagun guy (since he's the biggest threat to the Marines), and Elisanth can start killing the guards.

    Ah. I'm not sure why we chose such an easy-to-disprove lie, then. Perhaps we can brazen it out with something along the lines of "well, if you worked for the inquisition, would you leave a paper trail?"

    It got us where we need to be. In a small room, between the captain and his backup. He doesn't have turrets or missile launchers here. I doubt all these guards are willing to die to avenge the captain- they weren't for the last one, after all.

    If the consensus is that we want to go loud here then sure, I'll go along with it - but with a half-dozen astartes in the room, Sol will probably just dive under a chair and wait for the noise to stop.

    Not taking notes on something like that is how I'd argue it. I think I've pushed my luck far enough here anyway.

    So what I'm hearing is blow up these fuel tanks in the hanger. Paline's still chilling in the ship waiting for where she's going to start burning.
