Bursting through the door, utterly unexpected whilst screaming they are members of the Inquisition certainly has an effect on the clergy within.
Two pages proceed to collapse, fearful and sobbing against the nearest pew, one significantly damper than the other.
The two counsellors stand frozen, unsure of the situation.
The priest turns to face them, his face a picture of serenity as one hand withdraws from his cassock. In it a matte-black autopistol that barks into life, spitting rounds at the Acolytes.
Surprised that the recumbent figure knows of their connection to the 'left hand' - an archaic form of address for servants of the Holy Ordos.
Intrigued by the Oracle’s apparent prophetic powers, they inch further into the room, a million questions racing through their minds.
Even as they begin to form a question, a small, welcoming smile plays across his face as his mismatched eyes scan their hesitant faces.

Looks like FFG have just released their updated DH 2nd Ed. beta I guess I’m not doing any work today.
Just finished the Beginners Game for Edge of the Empire after being repeatedly promised a game for months.
A lot of fun, really enjoyed playing it. Nearly died several times - including plummeting to my death on a mangy rope bridge .
It was nice to be a player again, although it has given me a bit of a hankering to run WHFRP 3rd Ed. now though.
Hopefully there’ll be a Dark Heresy session on Monday, last weeks was cancelled as half the group was ill.
Their journey is comfortable, although a somewhat cramped affair in private cabin aboard the ornithopter.
The flight gives them plenty of opportunity to get to update Treyjan on the status of their investigation, as well as their theories as to what they’re likely to find on Ambulon.
After several hours of flying across the wastes of Scintilla, finally they catch sight of Ambulon in the distance, glittering in the desert as the soon reflects off its skin.
For those who know what Ambulon is, the sight is impressive, for those who’ve never heard of Ambulon it is truly a breathtaking sight.
There in the middle of the desert, a vast city build across the back of a beetle-like walking machine, moves slowly forward, its multi-tude of legs leaving great impressions on the ground below.
Sneering at them, the power armoured clad Inquisitor introduces himself as Inquisitor Coran Tythus
Quickly, even the most tactful and wilfully blind Acolyte notices that the inquisitor has already presumed their guilt and for whatever reason has bothered listening to them.
Surrounding them in the sunken stone chamber, armed and armoured Inquisitorial troopers stand impassively waiting for a word or a nod from the Inquisitor to take action.
The Acolytes now face a greater threat to their lives than the Warp-spawned creature they had been fighting not long before.

So tonight we all bid farewell to our dear friend, faithful companion and devout servant Tarro.
He fell battling heretics and malefactors, sacrificing himself to destroy their leader and save his fellow acolytes, allowing these divinely guided tools to smite and purge another day.
Having suffered his final critical wound, Tarro stepped up to the plate as his fleshed boiled, his eyes burst and his bones cracked as the Energy damage from the powerblades set him ablaze. Grinning as best he could through the smoldering gas mask, he managed to reel off a final farewell;
"Let the Emperor take us both…"
As his accumulated ammo, weapon and grenade (for a full list, check out this) caches exploded taking himself, the big bad and half the corridor out with him.
Tarro is the longest lasting character - aside from his original partner Grendal - in the group. He may be the oldest character as I think I was hearing about him long before we started, throw in a couple of one on one sessions for an elaborate back story and he really is old.
There was a moment after his glorious death, everyone sat there shocked and quiet that Grendal noticed something… a token left behind by Tarro.
Interested to see what is in store next for the group.
Hopefully, the backlog of write-ups will be up here soon.
A very melancholic anewbiegm.
Van Saar Gang Leader
House Van Saar:
Trying hard to remember ‘my’ gang from my short lived foray into the horrific Hive Necromunda.
I think it was Van Saar but as it was - depressingly - nearly a decade ago, I’m having trouble remembering.

Sat in work, and as has been the case since he wrote it off, we’ve been taking the piss about my co-worker buying a new car.
The latest idea however, has got me pretty excited - far more than the Renault Megane with a hole in the footwell you could apparently climb out of.
The thorium powered car that only needs to be refuelled once a century. The article got me thinking, and naturally that turned to video games, video games such as Fallout 3 and New Vegas - yes I know there are ones before these but I don’t ever recall blowing up a rusting car and watching/hearing the rad counter shoot up!
I, with my (very) limited understanding of nuclear physics and irradiated material, can’t wait to see one of these cool-ass cars hurtling around the streets.
I’m still working on the posts for the last couple of sessions and getting ready for tonight’s climactic - hopefully - final episode in this investigation.
