Arrival at Cerrus
Almirah looks at Alyss gratefully. "If you'll follow me, I'll show you to your rooms."

As she leads you around the corner, you see two of the people that were in the throne room walking towards you, chatting with tired expressions on their faces. One is a shorter man, wearing simple brown robes, with a shaved head and the symbol of the Adeptus Ministorum tattooed under his left eye. The other man is the polar opposite; tall and slender, wearing a fine outfit of soft looking fabrics.

Alyss whispers back quickly, "I see." and gives a semi-forced smile at the on-comers as they approach. "Greetings gentlemen, what can we do for you?"

All these nobles and formalities are really getting in the way of even just starting work she thinks to herself.

They look up at you, surprised. The bald man collects himself and speaks. "I'm sorry, ma'am, we were so engrossed in our conversation that we didn't notice all of you. Quintus, Almirah, a good day to you both."

Lhari awaits to be introduced, giving a wary eye to the bureaucrat. Auto-quills was about the extent of their technical knowledge, but he is aware that knowledge is the one true power of humanity and these men had a monopoly on it.

The tall man gives a thin smile. "Beg pardon for our rudeness, noble lords and ladies, we did not mean to intrude in your path. I am Johan Mellion, and this fine man of our most holy Ministorum beside me is Preacher Gustav." He gestures to the shorter man with a small flourish, and you can't quite tell if he's overly polite, or just making a mockery.


Gustav shakes his head. "As always, you give me too much fanfare. Perhaps if you showed as much devotion to the Emperor's Word as you do his people..." He sighs, and you swear you can see a twinkle in Mellion's eye. "We'll stop taking up your path and time, many apologies." '

"Quintus, always a pleasure. Almirah, you look lovely as ever."

"No trouble, just be sure to keep your head up. Alyss says in a level tone. Just in case we run into each other again, I'm Alyss Vance and these are my associates Lhari Gorgo, Cromwell, Domonia Sadistivus, Nivellius and Uroch. We will be spending some time in your city for the foreseable future, looking into this...conflict.." She gestures at each of them as she says their names.

The men offer polite greetings to each of you, although Mellion's gaze briefly lingers on Cromwell, and both are clearly curious about Uroch, but refrain from any questions they may have. With a final apology, they continue on their way.

Almirah leads you to your rooms, and tells you that should you need anything, she's reachable by the palace's intercom system. Conveniently, there is one in almost every sizeable room or hallway. With a slight nod of her head, she takes her leave.

"We made sure to disable the surveillance in your individual rooms, although the hall and rest of the palace are under strict surveillance. I'll stick around the palace until you head out, it wouldn't do to leave Lord Heimgarten alone with a bunch of heavily armed strangers." He winks. "As Almirah said, if you need anything while you're here, you should be able to reach me over the intercom."

"Thank you Quintus, you've been very helpful which is much appreciated. Before you go, would you mind if I had a look around your armory? I don't want anything special, just something a bit more durable than this." She plucks at the sleeve of her bodyglove underneath her shirt. "Who knows what will happen outside the palace walls."

"Certainly, our best gear is elsewhere, but anything we have here at the palace is at your disposal. I'll tell my men to expect you." He glances at the others. "Hopefully the big guy doesn't need anything, we don't have anything that size."

Reachable at anytime just means he's watching us.

"Oh don't about about him, Nivellius usually takes care of him. Well Quintus thanks again, I'll settle in then head down to the armory." She turns to her companions. "Say we meet back here in about an hour to begin?"

"I for one will head to my room for the evening. Almirah, be sure to send one of the chamber maids with this planet's finest wine there. Anyone of good taste is welcome to join me."

Eyeing seductively towards Cromwell, "Mercenary, I think one such as yourself would like to see what it's like to drink as the nobility once in your lifetime"

"Nevi-boi and Love are welcome to come as well, in fact I encourage them to come and unwind a little. I don't think someone of such high standing as Nivellius would miss the chance to try a planet's finest wine. The bot can stay in his room though "

"Perhaps later. After I go to the armory I would like to take a walk and familiarize myself with this place, and perhaps visit the temple. But I will drop by." She turns to Lhari. "Would you mind if I got a copy of the map you have?" She pulls out a data slate.

"Much appreciated." While the map finishes copying she heads into her room to drop off her luggage, then comes back out. "Well we'll be at the armory for a bit, if anyone wants to they're welcome to tag along."

You follow Quintus' directions an arrive at the armory. Four guards are stationed at the door, weapons slung in front of them. As they notice you, they snap up into salutes, and open the door. One of the guards approaches Alyss and gives her a slight bow. "Commander Quintus said to expect you, ma'am. I'm afraid that we don't have much to begin with at this location, and having everyone deployed at once isn't helping. Whatever you can find, feel free to take, just sign it out."

Alyss nods at them. "Understood. Times like these put a strain everything. I shouldn't be long." She motions Lhari to follow her and proceeds through the door.

As you enter the armory, you notice that most of the equipment racks and lockers lay empty. One would only need to add a layer of dust, and you might think that the room had been long abandoned. Fortunately, there are still assorted weaponry and armor lying about, although the majority are on what appear to be repair stations.

On the equipment racks and in the lockers:
  • 3 shock mauls
  • 7 shields, each bearing the arms of the governor's guards
  • 4 choke grenades
  • 20 laslocks that look like they haven't been touched since they were placed in their rack
  • 5 swords, none of them shiny
  • 3 flak vests, also bearing the arms of the governor's guards
  • 2 dented flak helms
  • 6 heavily scratched autoguns


On the repair stations:
  • A disassembled grenade launcher
  • A set of power armor, looking like it belongs to the most elite of the governor's guards. Unfortunately, it appears to be missing a power pack, rendering it useless.
  • A long las, periodically emitting multicolored sparks
  • A pair of scorched hand cannons, the grips were melted to a pair of flak gloves that you assume belonged to the previous user. The gloves were (thankfully) empty.
  • An intricately engraved power sword
  • A heavy stubber with a mangled barrel

Alyss walks over to the armor racks and frowns. Slim pickings. After a bit of inspection she sighs and picks up a flak vest, and signs it out. She looks curiously at the repair stations. She motions to Lhari. "Do you think you could help them out here?"

In his eagerness to finally deal with machines instead of people, Lhari accidentally connects the compressor to the combustion switch, causing the launcher to explode in an impressive fireball. Shards of metal fly throughout the shop area, although you are all fortunate enough to avoid being hit with any parts large enough to injure. Unfortunately, several tools and machines were mangled in the process, making any other repairs you may wish to perform more of a challenge.

The guard that spoke to Alyss outside the door pokes his head in the room. "Everything alright in here, ma'am?"
