The Alpha - A Mini Inquisimunda Campaign - Game 3 and Conclusion
The final installment centers around the defending cell holding the Alpha (Skarn's cell in this instance), Preparing to deliver the Alpha back to their master. The defender would be set up in the center of the table and have to hold off the attacking forces long enough to prepare the lander and depart the decrepit hive.
Both cells were deployed, Ebon in the center and Corvus deploying to the edge of the landing pad.
As Skarn's forces arrayed in a protective ring around the Alpha, a thumping metallic clank could be heard, gradullay moving closer.
Corvus started to move Cell Iga into a strong position, with the intention of snatching the Alpha from under Ebon's nose.
A heated exchange erupted between Skarn and Bragi, it seems that Ebon's cell had taken someone elses property. After a brief to and fro, something about who had more skulls than the other and who would be adding who's skull to their pile, Slab lost his patience and let rip with his rapid fire Plasma Cannon!
The whote ball of Plasma found its target and erupted around Bragi, destroying him utterly in one fell hit (Not exactly how the GM had planned it!)
Content to sit and watch Skarn and Bragi's henchmen destroy each other, Corvus held Cell Iga back and awaited the outcome.
After dealing with Bragi's henchmen, Skarn and Iga's Cell opened a dialogue. Not wishing to be encumbered any further, Skarn decided he no longer needed his prize and negotiated a trade with his radical counterparts.
Not wishing his hard work to be undone and an easy victory given to Corvus, the GM made him start rolling on the d20 Warp Table. Unfortunatley, other than a few random teleports, Corvus managed to avoid any serious damage and escaped the table with his prize.
And thus ends the opening saga of The Volantis Chronicles. I am itching to get another campaign written up (I have even started basing my NPC miniatures in early perpetration, more on those later) WIth the new Warp Tear in the Grim Dark Galaxy of Warhammer 40,000... I can feel some interesting story lines brewing.
