Cleansing of the Reach

First Session

The characters wake up in a square metal room, with two doors. Castella “Kat” Thrace starts the conversation by introducing herself as a 43 year old assassin. She then asks Jericus “Lugg” Regis what he is, who promptly answers that he was a mercenary guardsman. Kat began talking about her superior origins from being born on an Imperial world. Solomon Lupus “the Verbal” piped up about him also being from an imperial world, and introduced himself to the party as “Cleric.” All three of them notice an inset panel in one of the walls with a series of buttons on a panel next to it, and they decide not to press a button. When “Lugg” fails to open one of the doors, he attempts to pelvic thrust the door. “Cleric” attempts the other door, and finds it locked. Kat excitedly “squees” “I GET TO PRESS A BUTTON!” Kat approaches the panel to get a closer look and notices three buttons: red, green, and yellow. She pushes the yellow button and nothing happens. Cleric tells her to try another one. Kat presses the red button, a response of clanking gears occurs. They team up to attempt to push the panel up. Kat presses the green button. The panel moves to reveal a window showing them the vast emptiness of space. Cleric suggests that if he flagellates himself the doors might open. An electronic voice asks “You were going to flagellate yourself?” One of the doors opens, and the group enters the next room. Cleric mumbles under his breath “Praise the Emperor.” In the shade across the room the group notices the shadowy outline of a person across the room. Lugg says “Hello.” The shadowy figure surprises them by telling them their names. The group is given their first mission to track down and eliminate the leaders of the rebellious factions on the planet Hyporia before the major invasion of the planet. Their ride to the planet is a deathwatch thunderhawk. Kat announces, “We are all going to die!” as the thunderhawk plummets out of the hangar bay. After reaching the Capital city of Hyporia they began to inquire as to the locations of the leaders of the city. Finding out that the leader of the city, who just ousted the last leader of the city, is hiding in his bunker and will not be leaving it officially for another 12 days the group decides to investigate the city. After two days they find one of the rebellions weapons dumps by following three members of the rebellion to it. Lugg misses the first rebel with his las pistol, and combat begins. Cleric bursts in the door and blasts the arm off of one of the rebels. Kat missed another rebel twice with her shotgun. Lugg catches the third rebel in the right arm, Cleric quickly follows up with a shot to the left arm killing him. Then they all focus on the rebel kat missed and under concentrated fire he does not last long. They quickly neutralized the people guarding the weapons dump, unfortunately not silently. The session ends with the group looting the corpses and the weapons dump.
