On Diyako, Grekan rules the kingdom of Yenar. For unknown reasons, The Lady owes him a favor. He’s experiencing a peasant revolt and has decided to call in the favor. We must put down a revolt and return people to following their rightful ruler as is the way of the Imperium.
The group is taken to a shuttle which will travel up to their transportation to Diyako. Drake intimidates a deckhand while entering, and he and Pris try to provoke some other acolytes into a fistfight.
Once on the rogue trader, they speak to Captain Maya, who welcomes them, and they are shown to their quarters. There are some bro-soldiers who are annoying and talk shit about people, but mostly they ignore them. At one point in the common area, Pris overhears them talking about her, about putting a bag on her head, and about the rest of the group being fags. She tries to tempt them to come into a nearby cargo hold so she can beat them up, but she winks at them completely un-sexily, so they don’t follow her.
They land on the planet, it’s a medieval technology world. From the descent they see a large field which has been burned down, as well as some prefab structure which was obviously left over from an early settlement, and then a large castle. They land in front of the castle, and are greeted by a carriage. They are given a ride over to the castle, while they ask some questions of the driver and other passenger. The revolt first started due to the king forcing people to grow some arachai flowers which were valuable exports as spices.
They went to see the king, who was astonished that it was just the 5 of them, and that there were no masses of troops following them. He held a feast for them, where he made a hugely sarcastic toast about their power. Tybalt grew very angry, and stood up and remarked about how very powerful they were, and how they WERE actually able to handle all the problems they had. He stunningly, was actually convincing, and the other nobles at the dinner grew more at ease with them.
They learned about the source of the revolts, and the cities which had declared open revolt, and made their way to one of them to begin to interrogate rebels. Along the way they were stopped on the road by a man who claimed to be the man who was the source of the rebellion, in that it was his son who was killed, and tried to convince them that to support the king was not right. The group responded that deciding what was right or wrong was not their mission, their goal was simply to put down the rebellion. They were then attacked by some other rebels hiding in the woods, but they were easily put down by the acolyte’s superior weaponry.
