The end of the Golden Throne

A little bit of Prospecting

They group has arrived safely to the system. They made planet fall on the first planet that supported life. The planet seemed almost too accommodating and comfortable to Terran life. Very little of the local Fauna proved to be hostile but terrible razor winged birds were encountered.

They eventually encountered a strange alien city made of bone and blackish purple polished stone that seemed to resist most basic weapons attempt to destroy it. Cornelius and Gorgut fell victim to an alien device designed to entertain visitors to the city and fulfill their every desire. After being partially corrupted by the device Cornelius broke its hold on him, helped the ork escape its clutches and destroyed the device freeing the rest of the expedition team that had also been in its clutches.

The other two hustled their way through the empty streets till they encountered the huge dark tower in the center. Which was several hundred feet in size. The door was sealed and despite efforts both peaceful and violent the door would not open. When the group all gathered they found the door to the place would open immediately in the presence of Cornelius. Picking their way through the strange tower they encountered a counsel of six masked figures who bargained Cornelius’s freedom for a chance to build his empire and to aid in the battle against the Imperium.

Cornelius refused the counsel threatened him and his allies with a fate worse then death. At which point the tower itself unleashed a beam of pure warp energy tearing the fabric of reality and unleashing demons. The encounter was terrifying and the group beat a hard retreat demons on their heels to the edge of the city.

They have boarded the Lux ready to leave the system their expedition largely a success. Escaping the perils of the warp to face the horrors of commerce.

Building an empire
A mining endevor.

Securing resources from system 568.

My agents discovered a rumor of a resource rich system discovered by accident by a frigate in Lord Echero’s employ. While this information has most surely been passed on to Echero himself there has been no word of his attempts to claim the system. I have secured coordinates and warp routes that are turbulent but not impossible for a skilled navigator.

Mining Endeavor:greater 1,200 Achievment points.

Requirements: Hire a survey team, Secure mining compacts, Acquire skilled transporters to transport resources, Find buyers, acquire planetside facilities and mining equipment and hab blocks for miners.

Objective:1 Survey the system and its planets
Objective:2 Secure the system of any hostiles or threats to mining operations
Objective:3 Find a safe route that transports can use as shipping lanes for mining camp and shipping of resources
Objective:4 Convince others of mining operations success and find a buyers willing to fund continue exploitation of the system to the mutual benefit of all parties involved(except the miners. their life is probably going to be terrible. So grim-dark!)

Making Footfall
Footfall profit

Through quick work and ingenuity the Tech Priest brought the gellar field into operation and the arch militant called down fire on the engines to prevent the jump to warp. With some repairs and good luck the Navigator got their battered ships to Footfall. After a few acquisitions the group prepared to start their first real endeavor out in the Kronus expanse.

That was a nice tour of the ship xeno now get off my bridge!
Stryxis punting

The team battled their way to the bridge of the sword frigate, part of the stryxis Xebec. They encountered a curious Dark Eldar working in tandem with the Stryxis. Their was a brutal melee with the stryxis being destroyed instantly but no one able to pin down the dark eldar long enough to kill him. The stryxis have activated emergency protocols and are now going to cast the ship and its slave crew to the warp to protect their secrets and kill the Rogue trader and his crew.

The Battleground
Battleground Maw

The crew of the Lux began their Journey through the Maw to get to the Kronus Expanse. As they prepared to face the brutal warp tides the maw could bring they encountered a dangerous packet of warped reality. While they managed to break through the brutal tides many of their crew fell ill to the corrupting nature of the warp. Their Gellar fields held for the journey and found themselves at their next stop within the Maw, the Battleground.

An ancient battle happened here and now this sector of space is nothing but stripped and drifting hulks in the void. Used as a safe haven by pirates and xenos alike salvagers occasionally come here looking for some forgotten archeoteck left behind but more often then not they add their ships to the graveyard.

The crew answered a distress call for a ship reported missing within the Battleground a few days prior, and arived to find it looted by Stryxis slavers. They battled hard and won the loyalty of Jovina Cas captain of the Light Cometh. Now they must begin their daring escape which has led the crew to do battle on the Stryxis cruiser itself…
