Rogue Trader - The Koronus Expanse

A Minimal Amount of Bloodshed
What Once Was

After gaining entry to the starport the team drew up their vehicle to the main building whilst Vulgrim and Octavius looked the area over for problems. Seeing that the starport was mainly staffed by labourers and only a few guards the team began to look for a secondary entrance.

Vulgrim was able to successfully recon the area whilst remaining concealed finding a smaller unguarded entrance to the facility, though it required a keycard to enter. Vulgrim then grabbed a worker leaving the building, silents his cries for help before snapping their neck and hiding the body, obtaining the keycard the team required.

The team then threw blind grenades towards the crowded and guarded main entrance as a distraction to allow the team to sneak through into the building through the side door along with the Blood Bullets.

The team emerged onto a gangway above the main warehouse area of the facility, out of sight of the guards and labourers. Kuurahn successfully hacked an access portal, discovering information about security measures, arrivals and departures and the directions to both the control room and the communication array.

Vulgrim took the team safely and stealthy through the facility avoiding all the administrators and guards, allowing the team to reach the control room without getting into trouble.

The team quickly dispatches the guards with Vulgrim and Octavius taking point.

Unable to get into the control room with the same keycard Kuurahn hacks the security mechanism to grant them access.

The team successfully capture the starport with a minimum amount of bloodshed and damage. They immediately get in contact with Commodore Viri Fortissimi describing the current situation and enlisting her help in getting the team into the mansion.

Whilst waiting for the Commodore to arrive the team receive a request for a status update from the mansion whilst Octavius handled expertly to prevent suspicion.

The Commodore arrives and the team prepares to leave in order to join with Tolica and make their way to the mansion.

Surprise Melta Cannon!
What Once Was

The team, along with Commodore Viri Fortissimi, meet with Tolica Neta, each of them giving the other a calculating look.

The team leave Tolica with the blood bullets to hold down the starport and the outskirts of the city, as they approach the mansion in speeders.

The mansion is under heavy guard, all of them seemingly the mind-altered elite guards.

The team and the navy are let into the mansion and brought into the conservatory for a audience with Lord Nathaniel Burne. Lord Burne is seemingly at ease with the group. However Mordechai is able to discern that he is harbouring a deep hatred for the team and him in particular.

Callidon and Kuurahn both make the connection, after hearing Lord Burne’s voice, that Lord Burne was the voice on the recording from the Kirtin Research Facility where Bo’en was killed, making Lord Burne Lanni’s target for revenge.

Callidon and Lord Burne engaged each other in banter, resulting with Callidon standing directly in front of Lord Burne. As Lord Burne threatens to kill the group Callidon releases his Lidless Stare. The Lidless Stare takes the top half of Lord Burne’s head off.

However, Lord Burne was unfazed. He stood and from his chest a melta cannon appeared and fires a shot that fortunately missed the team, but destroyed the entrance to the conservatory.

Kuurahn decides to hack into Callidon’s Servitor in order to direct it himself. In doing so he broke through a security level in its system and discovered that the servitor, more than any other servitor Kuurahn has interfaced with, is incredibly murderous and mostly was created from the remains of an insane human.

Meanwhile the team attempt to rouse the Commodore, who has become unresponsive to her surroundings.

In order to incapacitate Lord Burne, Mordechai psychically grabs him. Whilst unable to move Lord Burne is still able to fire his melta which hits Callidon – or rather his forceshield. However the shield overloads and explodes blinding almost everyone in the room.

In his blindness Octavius Perie uses his flamer on both one of Lord Burne’s guard and Vulgrim. Fortunately Vulgrim braces himself and remains undamaged through the flames.

Callidon bravely jumps beneath a bench for cover.

Kuurahn uses his logis implant to overclock himself and the servitor and the two of them begin to lay into the guards.

Mordechai throws Lord Burne across the room in an effort to prevent him from shooting his melta at the team.

Finally, Kuurahn is shot and loses control of his arm. The team are still in the thick of it all.
