Session 1 (40kBHFTZ)
Private Log: Sister Superior Augusta Victus, Order of Our Martyred Lady, Adepta Sororitas.
She is here. By the Emperor's grace, I know she is here. This place, this hulk of warp-twisted vessels crushed together into a single amalgam of death and horror barely holds an atmosphere, but there is enough oxygen for war. Endless, horrific war rages on every sagging deck between every kind of xenos scum and daemon horror imaginable, yet there is only one abomination that I have come hunting. If it were not for her, if it were not for the fact that I am driven to face my exiled sister and slay her myself, I would have ordered the entire hulk obliterated with nuclear fire the instant it was detected.
No, such a death would be too easy, would leave too many questions. I must find her. I must find our corrupted, heretic sister. I must find the one who calls herself Mother Vespasia. I must see her death with my own eyes. I can settle for nothing less.
And so, the hunt begins.
Post-play notes: this session (likely the first of a series) is kind of a hybrid of Five Klicks, Bug Hunt and 40K. Instead of the usual generation rules, I basically took the suspicious circumstances mob-spawning on 5-6 mechanic from Five Klicks and paired it with the contact marker rules for Bug Hunt. Instead of a stand-up fight and a hold-the-field mechanic, I decided to try a "run the gauntlet" type scenario. I'm also abandoning all gear gathering for a diversifying squad mechanic where I can pick my squad members from a roster (new members being chosen by a die roll,) never going higher than five in my kill team (Sister Superior + 4 support.) Mother Vespasia is, of course, a chaos sister model I've sculpted but have not yet finished painting. She's kind of the rival / boss of this thing for me.
