"We'll time is of the essence"

Darrius makes his way up to Edes and makes like he's looking for hostiles before speaking to her

"So Edes what can you make of this situation. Somehow I believe your input here will be more valuable than Jarrions."

"I might have an idea. There is amazing detail to these illusions. I believe this is a recording of sorts, furthermore I could not find any machines that project images in these halls. Whatever this illusion it is, it is of the same nature as the illusions that plagued us and our men previously."

"If it's anything like the illusions before than only death awaits us from them. Somehow I have a feeling whatever would be doing this is just playing with us. What is of most interest to me is what would intrigue the inquisition enough that they would send multiple starships to this forsaken place. We already came across one and this is the second, both relativity close to each other"

Edes waves her arm through an illusion and it doesn't respond "Restless spirits? Evil beings would attack us or try to corrupt us, these images pay no mind to us. Hence I believe they are naught but mindless recording. A flicker of rotting flesh does not turn pictures into evil."

"Turning on lights is a trivial task compared to powering some great machine that can project lifelike images all over a ship. Such an amount of energy could easily power to have opened the door to the bridge or any other of the countless machines aboard this hulk.

"Certainly more fuel is needed to power the entirety of a vessel than to turn on the lights. I do not see why certain components of the ship can be powered. We do not even know whether or not this is vessel IS powered. On the matter of the door, it is no surprise to me that the gate to what should be the most important room upon an Inquisition vessel would be locked, power or not. Darrius are you losing your mind?"

"I should ask you the same thing, you are aboard a ship and have seen several events that would have even the most iron willed of men worried. What's more you fail to recognize the obvious advantage these images would give anyone trying to ambush us meaning the fact that they are on is something to be highly concerned about."

Edes is flustered by your remark about her dead subordinates. "I do not claim to have the skills and senses of adeptus astartes. I am but human and my senses have served me well in keeping me alive. Unfortunately they did not serve my subordinates in the same capacity."

If you spent half as much time worrying about your men and assuring they have even a second more time to react before an attack then most of them would still be alive.

"I have to concede to your experience here Vendigroth. I do not know what it is like to an army of men to their death."

Edes scoffs. "Do not play games with me about these soldiers Vendigroth. Every soul on the Solstice knows that you and Xanatov carry much disdain for these mercenaries. Mercenaries that two of you insisted Lord-Captain Kalthar should employ. It is funny that you accuse me about ineptitude of soldiers you hired."

Edes looks dumbfounded "Are you stupid Vendigroth? One moment you accuse me of only relying on my own senses and the next you accuse me of relying on others. At least use that logic you are known for when trying to boil my blood.

We are however, wasting our time. The gate is sealed. Maybe we can find something in the cargo holds or the quarters of the highers ups that lived aboard this ship."

Darrius looks at Edes with an expression akin to that of a wise man being told he's worth nothing by a stupid youth

"If you are truly so fully capable of discerning the best way to turn this venture into something worthwhile than be my guest. Show us how powerful your senses are and just maybe you'll actually have a chance at gaining the Lord Captain's chair some day."

As he says this Darrius makes a gesture of "after you" to Edes down the hall. Once they start moving again Darrius makes a look around at some of the holograms to see if any of them seem out of place as they walk by (t 40)

You let Edes lead you 30 minutes through the ship to the cargo hold. About 5 minutes away from your destination the illusions of the workers flicker again - this time their clothes in rags and their entire body appearing to be rotting - only for a moment before the illusions disappear completely. The lights are still on.

Edes pauses silently for a moment craning her head to scan the surroundings. She motions with her hand to continue moving.

"I respect the emperor, his agents and his domain. This place has none of that. Let us move on."

5 minutes more of walking and you arrive to the primary entrance of the cargo hold.

It doesn't take an awareness test to know something is horribly horribly wrong. Perhaps it is the ominous enormous circular and heavily reinforced gate (40 ft diameter), or just all the events that transpired so far. Or maybe it was the 15 ft high perfectly cut triangle hole in the gate.

"You perceptive fool, I could not understand your accusations that I was hiding secrets before. Now I remember, my men and I were here earlier but this hole was not. We could not breach the door with the equipment we brought so I decided to search the vessel for anything that could break into the vault. . . .

They were listening in on us though. They confronted us and . . . tried to parley with us. I am no heretic so I would have none of it but they affected the others using their disgusting magics. The men and I proved resilient though, we broke free of their subjugation and there is still some blur between that and when Xanatov rescued me."
