Mission Date: 131.972.M41 (11:00-18:00 hrs) Day 1
Location: Hive Desoleum
Warband Epsilon-4 Activities Report
- 11:00-14:10-Arrival by cargo lander at Hive Desoleum midhive platform 12-1 east. Entered main transit hub and was engaged by a local named Lazerus who offered to provide guide services. Request was denied by order of Inquisitor Latavia. While awaiting transport from the Inquisitor, Epsilon-4 attempted to use subterfuge to acquire resources from a noble family exiting a transport. Local Adeptus Arbites detained the group but offered to await the arrival of the Inquisitor after they were informed of Epsilon-4's position as acolytes. After being arrested, the warband was released by way of the Inquisitor who arranged for a discreet drop off location in the lower hab's of the hive. After showing disappointment the Inquisitor left, leaving two senior acolytes to oversee their current mission: The Unknown Agent and Derisius, an ex-Imperial Guardsman. Failure to show improvement in performance may result in immediate termination of acolyte status and possibly life. The senior Acolytes provided us with a mission briefing "Hive Desoleum holds many heresies and horrors, and you are gathered here for but one of them. There are increasing reports of horrible deaths within the hive’s upper levels, with odd items of a possible xenos or archaeotech nature found with each corpse. Fellow nobles have related these were preceded with bouts of erratic and troublesome behaviour, and worry that a hive noble named Lans Guljian has exhibited many of the same behaviours.You are tasked with the Emperor’s Work: to investigate the deaths and possible connections to any illicit artifacts, determine if they are potential dangers of a wider nature, and terminate their
distribution. Recover and contain any items uncovered, lest they corrupt others.
Carry the Emperor’s Light with you throughout the hive, for there is little proper illumination to be found in this festering, ancient edifice. Desoleum teeters on the blade’s edge of damnation,
and one further heresy could topple the entire hive into the abyss."
- 14:10-21:30-Booked rooms at the Royal Tempest Inn in the Lower Apex district. Began requisition of local resources for mission supplies and cybernetic modifications.
