Rogue Trader

The Rather Underwhelming Crusade (Sessions 10 & 11)

908.816.M41 – Footfall, The Cauldron, The Koronous Expanse (Session 10)

  • The day following the meeting with Nicholas Cagoe the Drusians took delivery of their arms shipment and were organized into something resembling a fighting force.
  • With the Drusians organizing, Allister and the party went about organizing transport through a mixture of coercion and paying the local shuttle pilots.
  • Once transport had been organized the first wave of argus lighters departed for the Zahn Messafin asteroid.
  • Upon their approach the first wave of lighters were met by mega bolter fire from the docks.
    Piloting through the megabolter fire the first lighters landed and disembarked their cargo with the loss of 2 on the approach.
  • The party quickly set about disabling the first of the two mega bolter facilities with liberal usage of flames and stun grenades.
    Edmund was tasked with disabling the second.

  • While Edmund was away putting the second mega bolter out of action, Haldred spent some time sniping enemies positioned on the opposite side of a large thoroughfare.

908.816.M41 – Footfall, The Cauldron, The Koronous Expanse (Session 11)

  • Evidently displeased with Haldred’s efforts to kill their compatriots, a couple of large groups of local militia types mounted an assault on the dock barricades.
  • A brief fire fight ensued resulting in the main body of the force being either killed or driven of by persistent usage of grenades and fire from the Drusians and the party.
  • Following the fire fight the party and the those at the dock barricades sat tight until reinforcements arrive.
  • With the arrival of more bodies, the party took a platoon of Drusian milita and a squad of the ship’s armsmen and pushed further into the hab blocks.
  • Not long into the hab locks a junction provided the party with an ambush and a number of IEDs to work around. The thorough booby trapping of the area took the lives of a not insignificant number of Drusians resulting in two squads being sent back to the barricades for replacements.
  • The ambush was in the end won by a clever flanking move by Alister, Arlen, Claire and a squad of Drusians using the crawl space between the asteroid and the hab blocks within to get close in and drive out the militia occupying the buildings adjacent to the junction.
  • Once reinforcements had been organized, Alister went about establishing a base to work from in the home of one of the locals, in the process enlisting him as the guide for the party further into the Zahn Messafin’s teritory.
