Rogue Trader

In the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium, there is only war. There are also people who were given license to do whatever they please to benefit the Imperium (but mostly themselves), up to and including blatant heresy and xenophilia. Lauded as heroes by the High Lords of Terra and accused of being liabilities by the Inquisition, but they are known across the Imperium as Rogue Traders, privateers with the Emperor's marque.

The Koronus Expanse... an Emperor-forsaken frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Echoes of Damnation. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to make loads of money while screwing the other things on this list over.

Notable Events

But mostly, horrible deaths.

Session 1

  • Severus killed two assassins with one strike of a daemonhammer, by causing the first to explode into a burst of boiling blood and burning viscera, and impaling the other with bone shrapnel. Frida and Severus were showered in gore.
  • Marawa allowed a murder servitor to kill a Hive Noble by repeatedly beating his face in with a metal buckler. The head subsequently burst like a grape, showering Frida and the murder servitor in gore.
  • Inessa killed an enemy guard by burning his head off with a Meltagun blast, setting the remains of his body on fire and into a frenzy, which subsequently rammed into another guard and gave him crippling 3rd degree burns covering most of his body, but especially his right arm, which was fused to his armored chestplate. This was so horrific that the party was able to force the remaining guards to surrender.
  • Marawa was forced to live through the emotions and memories of her predecessor, who was erroneously punished for heresy and killed alongside the Damnation's old Navigator. She also acquired a cat and some creepy clockwork dolls.
