Dark Heresy Episode 4 – Desolation of the Dead

Having purged the heretics on Novabella, the Inquisitors are gloriously reassigned to Desoleum for interrogation work.  This dirty clockwork world appears to have dredged up some mysterious rotten corpses.  The cause of death still remains unknown.

    You guys probably already worked it out but I realized you forgot to snag the Slaaneshi cultist swag Archeotech las pistols (unless I’m hearing wrong and you guys already have them).

    Acolytes (especially relatively orthodox ones like this group happens to be composed of) tend not to loot stuff from the followers of Chaos.

    At the bare minimum, they’re defiled – most weapons, especially guns, have an Aquila stamped on them somewhere, and that’s gotta go, if you’re a heretic. Carrying them around afterwards would be like walking around in military uniforms with the flag patches conspicuously torn off.

    Worst case scenario, they’re cursed or otherwise tainted by their previous holders, or modified in a manner that’s basically tech-heresy.

    Worst -worst- case scenario, there’s a daemon hanging around in it.

      Fair enough. I also remember now you mentioned their family was in worship of Slaanesh for it’s existence on the planet so it’s probably safe to assume those guns are awfully close to becoming daemon weapons by virtue. That said, the whole scent of flowers thing did come up and seemed to not have any more relevence afterwards. I suppose it can be said to be just a side effect of whatever fucked up drugs the cultist were doing although it would be neat if there was some Slaaneshi demon that was particular to.

      Regardless, Excellent game and currently enjoying the Desolium arc you guys are in now.
