Chapter One: Maggots in the Meat




The Briefing Room is a simplistic room, 7m by 18m, with a 9m ceiling. Inspiring images of the God-Emperor and the forces of mankind triumphing over varying xenos decorate the walls. On the far wall, a large vid-screen is centered, displaying a nondescript planet. A long table is centered in the room, flanked by a number of simple metal chairs. Only one person is sitting at the table, an important-looking man who you can only assume is either the Inquisitor himself, or someone close to him. As you walk through the door, you see two other men have entered the room through other doors. The man at the table then stands, his long black jacket sways around him, revealing a bolt pistol holstered at his hip. "Just in time. My name is Maelos Dianin, of the Ordos Hereticus. You have been called forth today for a unique opportunity to serve the Imperium. Before I go into details, why don't you all introduce yourselves?"


OOCAlright guys, now's a fine time to describe your character to everyone. If there's something you're not sure about, just ask. Put dialog in bold, inner thoughts in italics.

"The name is Severus", he unenthusiastically replies, arms crossed. At this point he didn't much care, he had been cooped up long enough now.
His armor was black, sythetic chainmail with sturdy spaulders, greaves, and a barbute-style flak helmet covering the entirety of his face gave him a mysterious, warriorlike appearance. Severus wasn't built like the typical sword-wielding grunt, instead he had a shorter, lean physique. He kept his Las Pistol close and easily accessible, it was his finest weapon and was well cared for.
While his face couldn't be seen, he had very blatant body language. Right now, he was agitated and impatient.

A large room, sparsely furnished, with but a table and chairs; a single screen across the room, lit up with the unremarkable image of some distant mudball; pristine images of the Imperium's troops, laying claim to victory over the innumerable corpses of anything that stood in their way. The place was too damn orderly, completely at odds with the ordered-chaos and comfort that had been granted by a now distant barracks. Then the words 'serve the Imperium' reached his ears, and he stiffened slightly where he stood, olive Guard armour sliding with a slight crinkle over the tan uniform beneath. They were the same words that started about every deployment he'd ever been on - but they never lost that basic ability to take his concentration. His eyes flickered over the other two men who'd entered the room, before his gaze settled on the one who'd been seated before they entered - his new superior, most likely. "I am called Rakht," he stated simply.

++I am Dariel of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Nothing more, and nothing less.++, he replies in a metallic tone, scanning the room and the other people in it. His body is concealed under a dark red robe, save for his right arm grasping onto a metal staff, his head covered by a hood with only a few strands of his pale blond hair showing and his mouth is covered by a steel respirator. Only his slightly irritated eyes are visible.

Maelos grins, satisfied with the responses. "Well then let's get down to business. The planet behind me is Acreage, a simple backwater planet. The Planetary Governor, King Gordanus, passed away recently without naming a successor. Now his two daughters, Rhozeia and Rhozena, are bickering over who gets the title." As if on cue, the screen changes to show two women, one in a luxurious emerald dress with straight blond hair, and the other in an exquisite ruby outfit "Their squabbling has gotten so out of hand that a war has broken out on the planet between the two sides. Normally, this is not enough to involve the Inquisition, but over the past few months there have been violent murders." The view changes to a grainy still of a low concrete wall smeared in an extremely large amount of blood.

"Rumors of a death cult have been circulating. The Imperium will not stand for such a thing. You will be ferried to the planet, where you will then find out if these rumors are true. If they should be, well, you know what to do." He then reaches into his jacket, and pulls out a hand-held computer terminal. "This dateslate contains a short history of Acreage, as well your mission details. I expect an update of your investigation reported every day." He then gently slides the dataslate across the table. "If there are no questions, then proceed to Hanger Bay 003A. Your flight departs immediately."

"Right, we're on it Sir...", Severus replies, lacking enthusiasm.
Reaching out, Severus takes the hand-held device. He brings it to eye level, taking a quick look over the gadget before looking to the others, pausing to assure they were ready.
"If we're done getting touchy-feely, we have a flight to catch.", he calls to the other two. He was beyond anxious at this point, he was downright restless.

++Yes, I agree with our friend here,++ he states in a monotone. With a slight metallic groan, he gets out of his chair. ++But first,++ he asks curiously, ++is there anything else, besides this civil war, that you feel we should know about?++

Rakht shook his head, negative. The answers he'd want were likely in the mission details, at any rate. He'd never needed more before, though admittedly, most of his deployments ground down to 'point gun that way, shoot often'. Best to leave the head-work to the other two, really.

"Yes, one more thing. Officially, there is no Inquisitorial presence on Acreage. Do not tip your hand until you have determined the true source of these rumors, and even then, tread lightly. The spies of the enemy are everywhere." With that, he dismisses you.


The three of you arrive in the hanger bay to find a priestess of the Ecclesiarchy waiting for you. A striking woman with her head shaved and wearing the traditional robes of the Adeptus Ministorum, she makes her way towards you as soon as you enter.

"Greetings in the name of the Glorious Emperor. I am Yarni, I will accompany you on this mission." She smiles her voice clear and concise, clearly she is a gifted orator as her words drift on your ears like music. "His will is that we go forth and remove this foul cult from existence, and mine will be the extension of the fury of the Emperor himself, but first I have a gift from his Eternal Beneficence, microbeads, not as precise as a vox, but all the same, a means of communication." Yarni looks around at all of them,handing out the beads. "Truly, we are blessed in this, as the Emperor surely smiles upon on endevours, coming as they are from his very hand, the Inquisition, as with faith in Him, we can do anything." She steps out of the way, "Please, my fellows, enter here, and we will begin our mission as soon as our esteemed pilot whispers the proper rites to the machines spirit."

"Just my size.", Severus replied, taking the microbead in his free hand, "Thanks babe."
He then proceeds to enter the plane, turning back momentarily to add more.
"Oh, and how about getting me some of those little peanut packets while your at it.", he calls to Yarni, giving a smug laugh at the end.
Great, now we have to take some bald chick with us. She sounds a few rounds short of a clip too. I always get stuck working with nutjobs., he inwardly groans

He reaches out his left hand from under his robes to grab a microbead. ++Please, thank the Immortal Emperor for this gift of communication,++ he states, pulling his hand back under his robe. As he walks to the ship, he looks back at the robed woman. ++Ignore our…………….acquaintance,++ he says in a light-hearted tone, ++he is the type that likes to speak before he thinks.++ “That boy needs to learn himself some proper respect for others,” he muses as he heads up.

"Thanks be to his Unending Magnificence, and his steward, for this gift," Rakht rumbles quietly, nodding his thanks at the new addition to their Inquisitorial party, while palming the microbead. 'This is...a troublesome mix of people,' he thought, striding forward into the ship, 'The robed ones seem well enough, but this...Severus seems unable to contain his derision for that which is around him...I fear for our success, already.' Rakht shook his head, sliding his hand over the ordinance on him, recounting the list he had floating somewhere in the back of his mind. For some reason, it felt like far too little.

A flare of annoyance went over her face as Severus spoke, but all she said was, "You may wish to guard your words, you speak of one that has given their life to our Immortal Emperor, such words are a sin unto themselves, and thus heresy, you would not wish to be part of Heresy would you?" Her voice tilted like a blade, sharp and cutting. "Do not apologize for him, or excuse his actions, the Emperor judges all our souls alone, as we came into this world, and only we are responsible for our actions." She however inclined her head to the honorable guardsman and followed them into the ship. "But a fine and true servant of the Emperor knows that his life is to be spent in service to the Emperor, not in personal gain." Yarni then turned to the Tech, making the symbol of the cog, "And of course, we thank the Eternal Emperor for the Adeptus Mechanicus, as he surely smiles upon the Machine Spirit, and leads the search for perfection."

Severus sat with arms crossed, waiting for the others to board.
"Lighten up. Even the God-Emperor himself has a sense of humor now and then. Besides, last I checked we were all getting compensation in one way or another.", he mused. He didn't seem afraid of her passive aggressive threats, but whether it was ignorance or ego remains uncertain.
