Rogue Trader – Collective Threat Episode 9

It turns out that when it comes to starship navigation, like all things, you get what you pay for.  The orkish warphead brought onto the Brilliant Resolve had a very unique method of interacting with the warp runes that caused the ship to move very quickly through the warp, although sideways and partly inside out.  The crew is now interacting with horrors man was not meant to know and finding themselves slightly possessed by the horrors of the warp.

PLAYERS

  • Axe – Faydra Ramirez. Forty-year-old Lord-Captain of the Brilliant Resolve and current bearer of the Ramirez Dynasty’s Warrant of Trade. After a scandal that eventually saw her family’s prized Garden World confiscated and resold, she’s become increasingly unwilling to compromise her Imperial ideals, even if it means losing a chance at profit. Or being reasonable. A military commander first and foremost, she relies on the expertise of her crew to keep the Dynasty’s accounts ready to fund the return of as many planets as possible to the Emperor’s light.
  • Kevin – Herzog Luitger. 50 year old Master of Arms of the Brilliant resolve. Gray-haired and burly, Herzog is a decorated war hero from several campaigns in the Koronus expanse, bringing the word of the Emperor with fire and chainsword. When not serving with the captain, he can be found in the gym building his temple to the Emperor.
  • Max – Diannde. Choirmaster Telepathica of the Brilliant resolve. Short and dark haired with unearthly pale skin and a golden bird half-mask gene fused over her eyes and permanently seen with her strange amorphous snake and a bottle of amasec. An artificial witch created by a clandestine organization aboard a void station, Diannde was conscripted for her well crafted powers by the Ramirez dynasty, to whom she serves more loyally than Empire command.
  • Josh – Scylla. Thirty-ish Void Master of the Brilliant Resolve. Tall and well-muscled, she hales from a deathworld, where she fully excepted to live a short, brutal and, perhaps, glorious life. Instead, she was conscripted into the Emperor’s military, where she served exceptionally. She was recommended to the Lord Captain for her martial and piloting prowess by Master at Arms Herzog. She has a sick robo-bird named Charybdis.
  • Travis – Mord Champier. 57 year old Seneschal of the Brilliant Resolve. Old with a stooped posture and hawkish face, Mord comes from a long line of Ramirez family accountants. Seeking to make fortunes he left the service of the dynasty to parts unknown. He ended up not making much and getting stuck on a semi-heretical Mechanicus planet. When his path crosses with Faydra he joins her crusade to rebuild the Ramirez dynasty. His luck remains worse than a Guardsman’s aim.

    I had almost forgotten how brutal your games can be. It’s any wonder if the crew will survive but then that’s part of Rogue Trader’s charm.

      When your party has enough money to make most conventional problems do a backflip for them, you gotta find unconventional ways to keep them on their toes!

        Fair point. The absurd level of wealth of an RT is so abstracted you forget they can make most problems simply go away.
