Darrius makes his way to Jarrion

"I'm sorry to report sir that my attempts to negotiate terms with the spies has failed. If I may suggest a course of action I would propose that you allow me to attempt to infiltrate the raiders ship alone. Should you hear nothing from me in a days time then I am dead and you should continue to the hive world"

"Lord Captain, I do not think that wasting any more time on this station would be wise, we should attempt to perform our timely escape soon. Although it would be nice to know what is aboard that raider ship, it is not worth sacrificing a Senechal over. As soon as we make plans to leave, I will begin attempting to jam the docked raider's communications. On these weeks aboard the Solstice, I have noticed that it includes many stealth features, such as an Eldar shadowfield, and a variable figurehead, maybe enacting those too, when we begin our journey can befuddle our chasers."

"Are you sure that this a good plan?  You've just barely finished healing after your last excursion.  I believe Lankath is thinking more rationally here.  We need to get out of here.  Our every adventure in the Calixis sector has resulted in more misfortune for us.  I propose we simply leave and head for the Koronus expanse.  There we can sell our cargo of Xanthrin and bargain out the Inquisitorial secrets."

Camlann snorts. "Please. They know our faces, they would recognize you on sight. And how are you going to get back here if they jump in a different direction? Plain foolishness, that," he says derisively. "Now that that's failed, we have two options: Head to Malfi for the contact or pick up a new endeavor. Either way we must leave."

Darrius snorts at Camlanns comment

"It would be easier than you think to get onto their ship than you might think Camlann. All that I would have to do is take our captive raiders clothes and walk onto the ship. They're not going to expect such a move and should it come down to it I can enlist with them. Upon getting onto the ship I could find out what information I can and should they take off after the Solstice than I could attempt to sabotage her from the inside. If we were feeling enterprising enough I could take some of our mercs with me but we'd have to 'aquisition' some more uniforms"

Glademore predicted it would be a month from Agul to Footfall, Glademore was wrong. One hundred and five "days" pass in the warp. Four days into the leap the Solstice runs afoul a warp shore. Glademore described it as if the Solstice was climbing a waterfall of crystal. Embedded in the crystalline downpour are "boulders" and "sudden gaps" normally perceived well in advance and avoided. On this occasion the radiance of the crystal falls was too brilliant, too blinding and Glademore could not spot it in time. Rivaille made his best effort to steer clear of the hazard at the last moment but failed as well. The cosmic reef tore across the Solstice's outer layer and almost disabling the plasma drives in the process. The Solstice had to slow its pace and there was only one more incidence during the travels. On day seventy nine of the jump a portion of the crew members started fires on board the Solstice and threw themselves upon them spewing inanities about a great forge. The Solstices loses one point of crew population before Lankath, Camlann and other ship enforcers stop the madness. The phrase great forge sounds familiar to Xanatov and Vendigroth. The one hundred and five days end and despite the incidents during travel the Solstice surfaces into reality ten thousand kilometers from Footfall.

With a little struggling Darrius remembers an ancient ritual used to access such a particular datavault without the proper prayers. Darrius reads through the entries casually at first, only looking for anything of interest. Quickly he becomes more engrossed in the information the pages have to offer. They detail eye witness accounts of monsters residing in the warp and rituals employed by a group of heretical tech-priests to call forth the ... the ... daemons. Darrius waits before sharing the contents of the datavaults with the other council members, he understands that simply possessing this knowledge is cause to be branded a heretic.

Darrius gains Forbidden Lore (Daemonology) and Forbidden Lore (Inquisition) when relating to daemons or ordo malleus as trained skills.
Unfortunately for Darrius the knowledge corrupts a man's soul and mind. He gains 10 insanity and 5 corruption.

Darrius stores the data that he'd read within his quarters. During the remaining time in warp he spends his time pondering over the new information he has learned and figuring out how it relates to the events on the space hulk.

Upon word of arrival out of warp he makes his way to the bridge for the inevitable council meeting

Darrius nods to Jarrion

"I am almost certain that it is the cause of our crews recent insanity. It may also be worth considering that whatever it is may have been the late Lord Captains killer and that there are multiple since we know one likely escaped and there'd already have to be one here to do its dirty work. The station we were last at may already have fallen to darkness in the 100 days we were in warp travel. We may want to hold off on docking until every inch of this ship has been searched. If I am correct these crewmen may have been sacrificing themself in some foul ritual to bring forth something truly sinister and evil. Before we continue any further we must find it and destroy it sir."

"If it is the creature we faced, then it has changed drastically since we last fought it.  Recall how it gave us visions of things that were fake, forcing us to fight each other for its own demented pleasure.  I don't think that matches the deaths of the crew."  Jarrion strokes his chin for a moment, thinking. "Lord Vendigroth, would you investigate these deaths more fully?  We don'y know as much as I would like.  We should investigate them, learn what they had in common, where they lived.  Anything that would help us determine the cause."

Captain Jarrion then looks to the entry to the bridge in annoyance, "Where are the rest of the council hiding?"

Glademore and Selena appear, Mekarn enters only moments after and Rivaille steps over from the terminals to join the group. Before you say a word Rivaille says "Looked like a private conversation, decided to keep myself out of that business between you and Vendigroth.
