The Alpha - A Mini Inquisimunda Campaign - Game 1
I will be doing a write up of each scenario, this being the first. The other two will follow during the week.
The campaign I came up with was centred around locating & securing a feral 'Alpha Level Psyker'. The first game would be the chase to locate the Psyker, the second would be to make preparations for extraction & the third would be to protect the Psyker whilst the transit craft was being prepared.
I will be the first to admit that during the game, I could have done more to flesh out the story and include more dialogue. Its all good experience however and I am already formulating my next campaign (Which will hopefully reference back to this one for a bit of continuation). Enough prattle from me, on to the first game.
Hive Volantis - The Hive is located on Volantis Prime, a backwater planet situated in the Calixis Sector. Once a prosperous and industrious Forge Hive, it's fortunes have waned of late. The Hive and by extension, the planet, are governed by the ruling Spyre Household of Stuhn who have a long lineage which pre dates even the great heresy of the Warmaster.
Hive Volantis has grown over the centuries, each successive generation and Patriarch building on top of the accomplishments of the last. Each successive layer abandoning yet another sector at the bottom of the Spyre. The lower regions of the Hive are a rabbit warren of filth, decay and insidiousness, rife with crime and heresy as lowly Hivers attempt to earn enough Geld to climb up and out of the Sump.
Game 1 - Locate The Alpha
The Mission - The objective for both teams was to locate and escort the Alpha Psyker back to their respective safe houses (Or table edges). Each team had access to an Alpha Wave Tracker which would be used at the beginning of each of their turns by rolling a d20 and consulting the GM (Who would in turn check his table of doom!) Depending on the result they would either get a ping location for an Alpha creature, be subjected to some warp manifested mishap, have nothing happen or on a nat20, reveal the Psyker on the table. A ping does not necessarily mean a Psyker, there are other denizens and creatures within the sump which emit Alpha Waves!
