@Camlann: You find mostly emptied out crates of food supplies and ammunition. When you are mulling about the armory on the ship you find a damaged but functional voice-recorder device. The recording is a little difficult to make out but you think it says the following: "---- days till the jump. Everyone is concerned and we cannot shake the feeling that we are being watched always. ----------- goes there? Red eyes?". Right behind the machine is an unloaded bolt pistol.

@Vendigroth: Your successful manipulation of complex machine systems helps expedite the repair process.

@Xanatov: On the bridge you can make a severely scratched etching of the words "Battle Rampart" in a semi circle around the front of the Captain's throne.

A broad grin crosses Camlann's face as he holds up the bolt pistol.
"Just what I needed! This trip's theme seems to be free weapons. Now if only there was some ammo- aha!"He loads the bolt pistol, spins it twice in his hand and holsters it, stowing extra magazines in his arms coffer. He goes to find the others and show them the voice recorder.

When Jarrion hears the recording his face grows pale. "Darrius," he says quietly, "do red eyes remind you of anything?" He then addresses the rest of the council. "Be on the lookout for mechanical monsters with a single, glowing red eye. Also be wary of illusions. Madness may strike our men at any time. They may attack each other, or us. We should try to reduce casualties from these attacks if possible."

"I don't think it's a coincidence we would run into these things so far from the space hulk. Whatever they are they're likely still here since they were on the space hulk. It might be best to have the entire ship searched stern to starboard to see if we can turn up anything. If we do the men should be told to be wary of firing their weapons in the event their minds are being affected and they shoot one of their own."

Darrius takes some time to go think about what he'd learned from the inquisitorial datavaults if their's anything about mechanical daemons that mess with peoples minds and drive them to madness (Forbidden Lore Daemonology trained int 45 - 5 from background)

"Firstly, if we do search the ship, we should search from bow to stern. I'm sure that's what you meant. However, I am not sure I agree. Searching the ship would alarm the men. We should not tell them about the creature on any account; it would only reduce morale and increase paranoia. We need to repair the Battle Rampart as soon as possible and get back to civilization."

"We're going to want to search the whole ship anyway. And I have an idea to reduce casualties if friendly fire breaks out." Camlann voxes to all men currently aboard the ship to unload and put away their ranged weapons because they won't need them, and not to take them back out without consulting with him first.
"This should help with morale too, a body'll feel more at ease thinking he won't need guns here. Just like on our first ship."

"Rivaille, do you think you're able to bring the ships close enough together to establish such a connection? It certainly is a good plan. We should set heavy guards on the checkpoints to ensure nothing nasty crosses over." He then turns to Darrius and Camlann, "My apologies, Lords. For some reason when you mentioned searching the ship I assumed you meant the Solstice. It must be my space syphilis acting up again. If only we had found some medicine in Footfall, then I could be cured."

Camlann searches for more items of value and discovers a motion predictor attachment.

Days pass and the repairs finish largely without a hitch. The crew is waiting for the Lord Captain to imperiatize the newly claimed vessel.

After the Lord Captain's words the "Battle Rampart" is activated in earnest. A large hum radiates from the engines in the stern of the new vessel. But half a minute a later terrified bloody screams sound out louder than the vibrations of the walls. Similarly an emergency message is received at the bridge of Solstice from the voidsmen quarters. The operator at that station plays it out for Lord Xanatov, Glademore, Vendigroth, Rivaille and Selena to hear: "AUUUUUGHHHHYYYYEEEeeee...." (Grinding of metal sounds in the background).

"Hmmm. That might not have been so successful." The Lord Captain returns to the vox. "All double rations have been canceled. Return to your posts." He then turns to Selena. "Selena, you might want to scan the Battle Rampart to see what has occurred. And just so you know, you should feel free to take more initiative in the future."

She nods and makes for a shuttle to the Battle Rampart.

Glademore asks "What would you ask of us Captain?"

An operator interjects before Xanatov can answer: "Captain, eight more messages with similar content have been received in the past half minute. Each comes from a different part of the Solstice."

"On second thought perhaps, we should bring Selena back here." Jarrion orders a guard to run off after her and bring her back. He sends out one more ship-wide communication, "The festival has been canceled. There will be no imperiatizing at the next morning shift. All celebration is to cease immediately."

He then sends one, more private message, to his personal guards. "Report to the bridge immediately."

Finally Jarrion turns to the others on the bridge. "As I'm sure you are aware, a situation is developing. Apparently some presence is aboard the Solstice, and our men are in pain while metal is being damaged. I propose we find some way to get across to the Battle Rampart, which seems to have been unaffected by the event. Then we can regroup and find a way to come back aboard the Solstice."

"In that case, perhaps we should sit tight and figure out more about the nature of the event before acting rashly. We need to get Mekarn, Lankath and Camlann to a safe place." He then voxes the three he mentioned before to say, "What is your current situation? Do you know what has happened?"

"I'm afraid to say we may have invited whatever was aboard the Battle Rampart onto our ship. Whatever it is we need to get what mercs are on board to meet up and form search parties and the rest of us should get to work killing whatever abominations are at work here. I'm not sure if leaving a functioning vessel in the hands of whatever is doing this is a good idea"
