Search for Valdemeris and Jux the Red

Mission debrief filed by Zephyr Accipitorvus

Our group finalized our deal with Lysander “Notch” Maculloch, outfitting the Manus Caelestae II with everything required to make the ship space worthy. I personally spoke with Lysander “Notch” Maculloch about any further information he had about the mysterious map pieces and the cipher he gave us. He gave no more specific intell, save the legend of Lord Captain Purity Lathimon. Using this, we went to Port Footfall and looked for information on either Adruesus Kahlmor, Jux the Red who we believe hired us originally, and Valdemeris Lathimon. I followed an employee under Valdemeris and overheard several locations where he operates. While searching for leads on Jux the Red we encountered a group of mercenaries belonging to the Blue Bolts company. They assaulted us and we fought back. Testarosa 5143931 nearly died, and we put down three of theirs before the militia arrived at our battleground. We successfully shifted much of the blame onto the Blue Bolts, but we were still jailed. After we regained our freedom, we travelled to Damaris near the God Emperor’s Scourge. We found little useful information on a station colony belonging to Sebastian Winterscale. We then returned to Solace Encarmine, and learned that neither Adruesus Kahlmor nor Jux the Red had been seen for several years. We also determined that the best place to meet Winterscale was to go to Egarian Dominion. On our way our ship was suddenly infested with warpspawn.

Battle at Mining Facility 14718329

Mission debrief filed by Zephyr Accipitorvus

Our ship engaged Killian Rage and his subordinate ships in combat around the asteroid field. The subordinate ships were ‘hulked’ and our engagement with Killian Rage was short lived before his ship entered the warp. It appeared that the ship was not fully under the pirate’s control. During the fight we lost a large portion of our crew, but the ship emerged victorious. We then approached the wreck of the Exarch Infinitum, and retrieved its Teleportarium, as well as the Writ of Trade that was left on it. Afterwards we returned to Port Wander where we checked in with Ashraqat Raheem for parts we had previously asked for him to look out for. We acquired some munitions, and looked for crew replacements, but to no avail. When business on port was finished, the ship again arrived at the forgeworld where ‘Notch’ was stationed. Our ship was fully repaired after we gave the forgeworlders the Teleportarium, and we went planetside to speak with this ‘Notch’. After being informed that Khalmor and the Exarch Infinitum were destroyed, the techpriest informed us that Khalmor had been slain nearly two years ago. Instead, he suggested that the person who claimed to be Khalmor was a different person, Jux the Red, masquerading as his own captain. ‘Notch’ then gave us information about the ‘map’ peices we obtained on the mining facility, and a full starmap. Finally, we traded our ship for his, renaming it “Manus Caelestae II”, may it bring glory for our names and death to our foes.

Search for Captain "Notch" Lysander

Mission debrief filed by Zephyr Accipitorvus

The Navigator, Demetrius Morgan, brought us into the hellish warp, guiding us to Solace Encarmine. The ship was boarded by several demons, which we dispatched but not without some casualties. While there, our group parted and I found some basic luxury amenities. Afterwards we chose to travel to Kinog, Along the way we encountered a dead hulk, infested with demons. We decided to board the craft and pull it from the warp. We succeeded in slaying demons along our path and after salvage we acquired a lance weapon that was potentially useful for our own ship. We then arrived at Kinog and while there I found a Bolt Pistol of legendary beauty. I have named it Eagespring. Now I must search for its sister, and my arm shall be complete. After our visit to the planet, we again passed through the hell warp, though with little complication. Upon arriving at the Forgeworld were “Notch” was staying, we were refused entry as we did not possess a Writ of Trade, and the ship that our former and deceased employer owned had a artifact of deep religious significance. Either they are heretics or cowards, either way, I make particular note of these Forgeworlders. Having been turned away, we decided to go back to Mining Facility 14718329 stopping at Port Wander. At port, we found a weapons supplier who could exchange the weapons on our ship, for the price of several ships worth of salvage, the old Macrobattery, and the guarantee that we would only work with him in the future. In truth, I believe we have been short shifted, but nonetheless we now have a contact on the port and a new weapon. Finally, we arrived back at Mining Facility 14718329, were we encountered a group of Pirates, and It appeared there leader knows us, though I cannot fathom how.

816.M41 Encounter at Mining Facility 14718329
Failed Mission for Adruesus Kalmor

Mission debrief filed by Zephyr Accipitorvus

I and three others visited Mining Facility 14718329 built into an asteroid on a mission from Adruesus Kalmor. The target of the mission was small black case kept in high security vault in an unknown location. The facility was in between a crew shift and supposedly vacant. After some minor searching, including a visit to Administratum, the vault was uncovered in the storage deck behind some hastily constructed paneling. One of the other hires, Testarosa-5143931, spoke to the machine that controlled the vault door and the vault opened as the storage bay was invaded by three officer level soldiers from an unknown organization. I and Zarko ‘The Neck’ Ilmattar disposed of the intruders. As a group we left storage up the loading elevator to the smelting deck. We encountered several mercenary soldiers which we quickly disposed of. The group returned to the flight deck and encountered additional soldiers, several of whom managed to escape from the asteroid. We were picked up by Arturas and ferried to a ship in silent running called the “Manus Caelestae”. En route, Adruesus Kalmor was destroyed along with his ship by an unknown agent in a Grand Cruiser size starship. Before his death Adruesus Kalmor told us to seek a contact named Notch. Our newly commandeered ship managed to escape the Grand Cruiser but not two raider class ships that were with it which we engaged in combat in an unknown location. Our ship emerged from the fighting unscathed and we salvaged the remains of our enemies. Afterwards we investigated the contents of the black case that Adruesus Kalmor had initially hired us to retrieve, which appeared to contain two peices of a star map which we could not decipher. We asked our navigator to translate the runes but he was unable. Instead we agreed to find the contact, Notch, that Adruesus Kalmor bid us to find if for no other reason than to carry out a man’s dying wish.

Personal Note: It appears that we will no longer find payment for the mission as hired, however, it seems that fortune has smiled on us as we have fallen into both a starship as well as what appears to be a valuable map. It is uncommon to find fellowship among mercenaries, but our band has if nothing else acquired the freedom to travel the stars unfettered by anyone’s control, be it the Imperium or otherwise.

997.M40: Return to the Imperium

We have returned triumphant to the Imperium of Man. News of our return has spread quickly, and people are already poised to chase us back through the Maw.

What we found beyond was more trying than anything we had ever thought we would find. Lost for what felt an eternity. The warp is a fickle beast.

What I had found I thought would bring me eternal glory. But only after using it I find myself doubting. This discovery could lead man to wage a war that would consume it from within.

I realize my trials are not over. I realize I must return to it. And I realize that I shall not be returning home.
