The esteemed astropath transcendent forgoes manifesting with his full psychic power in favor of cautious and safe casting. Alas, his powers are still only budding and with fettered strength he fails to send his thoughts into the void.

Karitoss sees a far greater degree of success in his efforts. He gives guidance to the machine spirit of the Equinox in studying the ominous veil. The enginseer feels a spark of insight rush through his machine body, understanding firsthand what information the Equinox has gleaned thanks to his aid. Although Karitoss has never heard or seen of such a phenomena he knows there is shroud blocking augury scans being projected into the void at the location of the static. Whatever is creating this obscuring field certainly lies within.

Furthermore, the continued success of the councilors gives a second wind to the morale on board.

As the tech-priest communes with the spirit of the Equinox, Tristan holds a hand to the cold metal of the ship while he whispers his own reverent words to the great spirit that surrounds him. Despite his typical demeanor, Tristan seems to genuinely respect the piety of the proceedings.

"Hmm, something that blocks augury. Seems that attempting an active augury will be useless then, but perhaps..."

Tristan attempts a scholastic lore (astromancy) to recall something he might have learned relevant to the anomaly before him.

Tristan fails to come up with any astromancy related details about the ominous void phenomena the Equinox is circling. Either he has never read about or encountered such a mystery or he cannot recall any pertinent information at this time. The augury on the other hand shows no signs that the shroud is dangerous and that if the outer edge of the static is any indicator that the shroud has a radius as long as ten void units.

Tristan puts his face in his fingertips and lets out an exasperated sigh. "Does anyone have any better ideas than shooting at it? Perhaps we could dispatch a handful of crew in a shuttle to investigate. In the mean time I'll see if I can parse any useful data from this static." (making a scrutiny test)

No dice for the master helmsman. He tries his best to gain insight on the static field but only sees an enigmatic orb of data fuzz. As far as he is concerned there is no rhyme or reason to the void shroud's existence.

Rightfully unwilling to risk the Equinox but still tasked with the duty of reaching his destination, Tristan Sky instead deploys a shuttle to traverse the astral static. The randomly selected crew are given empty assurances that the dark sphere will bring no harm to them and promptly sent off. The shuttle signal is carefully watched by the Equinox as it closes in on the edge of the enigma. Tension grows as the blinking dot representing the scouting shuttle is only moments away from the static. Five ... four ... three ... two ... one ... and the shuttle abruptly disappears from the augury system's view. Try as the councilors might they find it impossible to determine the status of the disappearing shuttle.

Minutes after the message is relayed through Novalaz the shuttle reappears on the augury array. The shuttles engine is crippled from pressure put on by the pilot but the group makes it to the Equinox in one piece. Joachim Hig is on board the Equinox once more.

"Then it would seem the only way we're going to get to the bottom of what's going on in there is to plunge head first and hope that the Emperor saves our sorry hides when it all goes to Hell.

"Captain, if I may, we still don't know enough about that thing we're flying into and I'd rather if the Equinox ever goes out, it does so with a bang, not with a pitiful void-whimper. The shuttle came back fine, but we can't say yet what that thing will do to a ship of our size. Before bringing the whole ship in, I'd personally pilot a small craft carrying a diplomatic envoy to the residents of the planet. There we might be able to communicate with the inhabitants and then learn how safe this thing is."

Regardless of who ends up going, GRONK will position himself to be "second for last." In reality, he plans to shut the airlock quickly, before Gobsnark is able to enter, so that he may finally be free of his minder.

He is also very excited to be considered a diplomatic envoy.

"Welcome aboard Fortuna" (Tristan's personal gun-cutter).  "Please buckle up and enjoy the flight. Complimentary waste bags can be found at your seats in the event we encounter any, em, 'rough weather.'"

As the hangar doors slide, he calls to the nearest member of the crew. "If we're not back in [twice expected travel distance plus a week] send a search party for us. If that fails, assume we have been captured or killed. Then you may put so many holes on that Emperor-forsaken planet you can't tell it apart from the warp, assuming the lord-captain approves of course."

Desilco trades his captains outfit for his storm trooper armour before getting into the craft. While on board as everyone makes there way through the cold void of space he looks between his advisors present and speaks up

"Since we don't know what to expect in there it would probably be best to lay out a basic course of action. I'm open to suggestions but it would likely be best to try and open with diplomacy rather than hostility should we find anyone there. I personally am extremely curious to see what xenos device could possibly be causing this"

"Of course captain, but I recommend we keep our curiosity to a minimum. It's probably best that we don't reveal the reason for our visit unless absolutely necessary.

GRONK schemes to lock Gobsnack out of the shuttle but fails to comprehend that the width of the entrance into the shuttle permits multiple passengers at once. Furthermore the minder is staying as close as physically possible. The weirdboy has had his plan foiled this day but there will always be another chance to try to evade his observer.

The shuttle takes off from the Equinox and passes the static field completely unharmed and within a few hours Tristan has reached the uncharted planet and locked the ship into its orbit. All that is immediately apparent is the presence of water and purple-green landforms. How do the councilors and their lord-captain proceed?

"Of course captain. While you and the others go exploring, I'll stay and watch the ship; even set up a perimeter if I'm feeling so inclined.

"I have a feeling that if we do end up calling for you we'll be needing a lot of shooting."

Desilco turns to face those in the shuttle with him (Karitoss, GRONK, Gobsnark, and however many bodyguards) and says to them

"We're going to want to stick close together and watch each other's backs once we're on the move. If we do come in contact with hostiles we'll look to make it back to the shuttle if the situation looks to be beyond us. I don't want anyone to be setting a bad precedent for us by shooting the first thing we see so hold your fire unless we're attacked"

Tristan lands the Fortuna on flat and rocky expanse a half kilometer from a lake. Before disembarking Desilco can see from the window that there isn't much in the way of flora or fauna here, only the occasional shrub. The group exits (and Gobsnack stays particularly alert of his weirdboy never stepping more than two meters away.) and takes in the fresh air (of course the possible toxicity was confirmed before exiting the Fortuna). One of the twenty five guards comments that the other members living in his quarters were green with envy that only he among them is getting to enjoy fresh air and sunlight. On the note of sunlight, according to calculations made by Novalaz and a few of his astromancers it should currently be mid morning on this side of the planet yet it is as dark as dusk.

[The dark vortex is not visible from here, the party is several thousand kilometers southwest from the origin of the vortex. Also GRONK's arm has not been slime covered since he pointed out the location of the static on the star map. Now it is only has a large splash of dried squig blood on it.]

Desilco proceeds out of the shuttle sword and plasma pistol drawn. He looks around several times before lowering his guard some and gives a thumbs up to Tristan that the area appears to be clear. He turns to those coming out of the shuttle and says to them

One of the operators of the Fortuna helps unload the hydro-potability-statifiers "These are kind of old and one might not work, take two."

The councilors walk over to the lake while Desilco's guards haul the heavy and unwieldly machines for water testing. Once there Karitoss supervises the placement of the machines and commences the rituals and litanies to gain inspired knowledge from the old machines as to whether or not the weak fleshlings can consume the water. Samples are poured into the chymistry barrels and a small parchment is produced from the user end of the machine.

"ACCEPTABLE FOR SETTLERS"

The machines were leftovers from a house Desilco planet development project and much like the esteemed house the machines did not care all that much about the longevity of individual inhabitants of the planet.

Tristan ventures out of the ship and casts a weary gaze across the barren landscape (rolling 61 with 22 awareness). He sniffs the fresh air once or twice, quickly grows bored of the outside world, and returns to his ship. Moments later the whirring engines of Fortuna let out a long whining sound as they slowly come to a halt.

Fortuna stands tall and proud, if a little beat up, above the dry soil. The once chrome plating is now scorched in several places, while weapons and augmentations adorn the old gun-cutter in a seemingly haphazard manner. Patches of repair work are a common sight on the interior and exterior of Fortuna, yet the ship's effectiveness could not be overstated. Amidst the scratches and imperfections, multiple rows of skull and crossbones boast the countless enemies felled at the hand of helms-master Sky and Fortuna.

Desilco smiles to himself at the news of the water being drinkable and says to those present at the waterfront

"Well this is unexpected. I honestly thought the water would return as being so badly contaminated it would melt your insides. At the very least if nothing is on this planet besides whatever is causing this strange maelstrom it could prove to be a good world for settlers or even a new fortress world if we find a way to control the maelstrom."

He then turns and looks off towards the direction of the source of the maelstrom to get a good look at what lies between them and their quarry (I'm literally seeing if there is a forest or something between us and it). He also voxes to Tristan whether he would think it'd be possible to fly any closer to the source of the maelstrom

"I can certainly try." Tristan flies Fortuna as close as he can get, being careful to watch for any disturbances.

[It will take more than half a day for the Fortuna to get close to the origin of the vortex, will people be doing anything in the meantime?]
