Stargrave - 40k - Super 64 is going down
For the third mission we played the crashed shuttle mission. Again, we decided to include a Foe from Dead or Alive. Because we are playing this two player we generated opponents for each of the five treasure markers.
Inquisitor Rathbourne's comm's team intercepts part of the conversation between Super 64 and the control tower.
...Super 64 plane captain: "I've got a blow out flaperon three"
Sector Controller: "Get your pitch to zero"
Super 64 Plane captain: "Pitch is out! I can't hold altitude!"
Sector Controller: "Correction, auto hold is off, turn selectors to emergency!"
Super 64 plane captain: "Flight com! I can't hold it she's breaking up! She's break..... zzzzzzzzz"
Inquisitor Rathbourne "decode the identity of Super 64"
"Sir Super 64 decodes as Imperial One"
So Super 64 has gone down into a swamp. The inquisitor leads his team to the hanger to find out what happened to the VIP transport and whether he would need to check out the rules for appointing a new planetary governor.
Inquisitor Malus has some team members that have made it to the cockpit. They are bringing cutting tools on the ship to get to the cockpit recorders. A smokescreen protects them from outside interference.
Inquisitor Rathbourne's team managed to kill the Magus. I think it was Derek the Sentry after Dr Needles had been taken out. Inquisitor Rathbourne managed to unlock the data loot. He was then attacked by a Warp hound. Another ^&*(^&()^&)( animal attacked me. The inquisitor managed to win the fight and pushed himself back and then ran off. Derek inflicted a critical hit on the Warp Hound only for it to be immune to critical hits and was less than the defence score so didn't count. The Penitent then ran over and smashed the Hound with another critical and this won the fight and killed the creature.
There were three casualties, the space marine, a commando and Dr Needles. Fortunately the first two passed their rolls. Dr Needles failed his initial survival roll but having programmed the medbay, survived emergency resusitation and made a full recovery.
