Rogue Trader Episode 1 – Port Wander


The crew of the Brigand’s Lament are an ambitious lot, and they’re looking for that one treasure that will secure their place in history. When they hear about an old ship called The Emperor’s Bounty, a derelict vessel that went missing several years ago, they can’t help but jump at the opportunity.

The Emporer’s Bounty has turned up somewhere deep in the harsher parts of the Void, and Lord-Captain Siegmund Schoenerberg has received a valid claim to the wreckage.  The Schoenerberg dynasty could certainly use the money.

Rogue Trader Episode 2 – Warp Incursion


Adventures in the grim darkness of the far future continue. Following his successful salvaging of The Emperor’s Bounty, Siegmund Schoenerberg receives a vox transmission that stands out from all the usual spam mail and advertisements. An old servant of his great grandfather’s is somehow, someway still alive, and also incredibly old. But no matter, he’s got an old relic that needs to fall into the hands of the last survivor of the Schoenerberg dynasty. A relic with coordinates to an old treasure ship Siegmund’s great grandfather investigated decades upon decades ago . . .

What they don’t expect is warp shenanigans and the fallout that follows.

Rogue Trader Episode 3 – Footfall


Things could have gone worse for the crew of The Brigand’s Lament. They came out of their unexpected detour with a new transport ship to add to the Schoenerberg dynasty and a useful new subordinate: the strange, yet incredibly friendly Xenos girl, Cavianne Omette. No immediate profit is gained, but a substantial investment is had, one that can possibly assist the dynasty very, very well in the future.

The crew continues where they left off, back tracking past the port of Footfall and off for their fabled treasure ship. Except there’s an asteroid belt in their way, and an ecclesiarchy ship nestled amongst the debris, damaged and desperately sending vox transmissions for help–yet never once returning a single attempt at direct communication with Lord-Captain Schoenerberg.

Rogue Trader Episode 4 – Departing Footfall


And so we come to the climax of Lord-Captain Schoenerberg’s hunt for a piece of his family’s old legacy. It’s nothing he’s got specific claims over, but as far as the stories go, a ship so full of riches it was gutted to hold more riches . . . well, that’s bound to be worth something, right? Worth a chance to save an ecclessiarchy vessel, a sight seeing trip to a distant system that no one really wants to claim, and a journey to a pair of uninhabitable worlds with some interesting historical details. Oh, also FRIENDSHIP and TEAMWORK in the grim darkness of the far future. It’s worth that, too.

Rogue Trader Episode 5 – The Dinner Party


Essentially beaten by Fel and buffeted by another Rogue Trader, one who happens to have a bitter history with our Lord-Captain, Siegmund Schoenerberg, The Brigand’s Lament makes a bitter port at Footfall. What’s next? Well, a great time to cut their losses and go shopping. No, really. This is how people with a near infinite supply of menial income blows off steam.

Footfall, however, is a pretty awful place, rife with corruption and an incredibly arbitrary hierarchy that makes virtually no sense . . . as the Lord-Captain and his bridge crew is soon to realize.
