"Darrius, trust me on this," Jarrion whispers in High Gothic.

"Alf, you strike me as a strong man, and true."  With that Jarrion raises his voice and speaks to the whole assembly of slaves.

"We will take any man who can prove himself strong, loyal, and a true servant of the Emperor.  We can give you a better life than the Hell you have been living.  All we ask in return is that you work hard, fight with us, and give us everything you know about this LordRegentKhan."

Jarrion moves among the men, trying to learn everything he can; the size of Khan's army, his location, defensive positions, anything that can help in the coming fight.  In addition, he tries to find information about Edes and her party.

Darrius looks on the scene for a second and sighs. He then turns to Jarrion and says,

"Jarrion, these people said themselves they wanted to reach a better life. None is better than being returned to the light of our Emperor and to have let these people live would be to invite heresy amongst our ranks. They had to die."

"Oh there is no arguing that.  But we aren't onboard the Solstice right now.  We have limited supplies, and using it to finish these slaves was an extravagance we cannot afford.  Also, we now have no idea how to actually get to the Khan.  I don't think directions will be of much use in this maze.  Not to mention we have just lost a very useful batch of mobile cover."

[Alright, well since they are all dead it's up to you guys on how to proceed.

As far as immediate goals go: Squad 3 is still MIA, Edes is on the far side of some anomaly, an unidentifiable ship has landed between you two and Edes and the solstice will be around in 20 ish hours.]

The group presses on through massive chamber to Edes' direction. Fungal tendrils can still be seen growing along the corridor walls. At this point there is no lighting other than your flashlights and the halls have become narrow and cramped but more orderly.

There are signs that battles have been fought in these halls. Las gun marks and brutal looking slashes marks are littered across the walls, it is impossible to tell how recent or old they are.

The feeling of being watched has been steadily growing stronger.

Another 10 minutes of slinking down the narrow halls leads to a horribly damaged set of stairs leading up. When you enter the room at the top the first detail you notice is how horribly it reeks of blood. More intriguing is the second observation you make, although the room seems to have undergone a paint job with a theme of red it unmistakably a command bridge. Cogitators and work terminals are abound in the room.

You approach one of the less blood drenched terminals and try to activate it as you would a terminal aboard the Solstice. The screen comes flickers a few times but eventually turns on.

To your surprise it seems as though the terminal has been used recently. A datarecord on screen lists damaged and functional sections of what must be this vessel. You do not have the knowledge to understand anything but the most basic details. What is obvious is that the vast majority of the ship has been damaged beyond repair.

Although the studies of your youth bring nothing to mind, your families conflicts with Ordo Hereticus has engraved their symbol into your memories. The symbol is certainly not of the heretic hunting branch of the Inquisition.

Monitors go on one after another. Most boot and request for decryption keys. One at the far corner of the room however is left open to a datarecord that appeared was intended to be sent away.

"Imperial date: 560.M37

There is not much time left. This datarecord marks my 23rd request for aid. At this point in time only I and thirteen members of my crew are alive and well, regretfully Lord Inqisitor Renner did not survive his wounds from our previous engagement. Others have either been lost to the depths of the hulk or lost their lives to darkness that beset us. This vessel holds a dangerous artifact that must be disposed of before it falls to Xenos hands or worse. The artifact is resilient to our efforts to destroy it and to study it would be sacrilege. Lord Inquisitor Renner decided to seal it in containment in the inner vault of the vessel for transport but we have no idea of the status of the cargo at this time. Our lives are forfeit here but I pray to the emperor that the order will find this vessel before enemies of man do.

May the emperor save our souls,
Inquisitor Harold Fanstril"

Jarrion smiles. "Hey Darrius, come over here."  When Darrius gets over and reads the message, Jarrion starts speaking quietly to him.  "This could be potentiallu even more valuable than the Xanthrin.  Yes, maybe this artifact was dangerous, but you know how the Inquisition hates anything xenos.  If we could figure out what it does, maybe we can use it to help us fight those bastards who betrayed us.  Do you mind if I call this in to the Lord Captain?"

Down another set of stairs and through bloodstained corridors the air suddenly gets thin. You arrive at the end of the hall and stop just short of the giant abyss before you. Peering your head out from the hall the ship looks like it had been cleaved cleanly in half. Some debris floats in the space out in between the ship and the structure to the other side.

Speaking of the other side, after a 100 yard clearing you see a large open platform with people engaged in combat. You can barely make them out but you are certain Edes and her entourage are down there fighting with something. What that something is you can't quite make out.

[Noise from the fight is not carrying over, you can however see the bursts light from las fire]
