In the brief rest period, Z heals: P, T, Self, but not D who was relatively unscathed.
She comes out from the panic room. A little worse for the wear. D” our men will help you carry what you desire, we have control, we must get you to the Zolos” LM: I want to take the voxcaster, but I do not know how to move it. Z then disassembles the vox and makes it ready for transport. LM” we should be on our way. I appreciate that you came for me. Hopefully you know by now that I have had my issues in the past, but let your lady know that in times of doubt I spoke out for you. D. let us go then, we will let the LG know of your actions.
They make their way back the guards are all high 5’s. Back at the Zolo com# D” the emperor fights with us!” the move past the guards.
Jamis is glad to see: see things went well. D yes, we have returned with everyone and retrieved the Lady. Perhaps the 2 of u can broadcast 2gether. JZ we have revi communications from Era Orz to talk with you about her conditions of surrender. Wishes to speak to you directly. In person.
Jamis tells crew of the atrium, much like a courtyard at a fancy hotel. She has ask you to come talk directly, we have guards outside, but no strength to storm her hold. D if possible we shall go for such peace.
The Plan: Z things we should get era to surrender and giver herself up for pub execution and spare her family. It is 2pm. D wants to meet with her tomorrow. T seconds as she needs time to heal. A message comes over the vox all garbled. Era has ordered a ship to be prepared at the island in the sea to escape. The crew now knows… it’s a TRAP!
Crew decides to go do this. They head yup several flights of stairs. They come to an ornate hallway, but it is better than LM’s. At the end are large 2xdoors and makeshift Z barricades at the doors. “I assume you are the inq I have heard of”. Z” yes, we are w/ the inq” “ we have been told that if you go through the doors, you will be safe once. I do not recommend it. “ Crew decides the charge code is “let’s have tea”
The Guard looks unconvinced. “You say tea and we storm the door.?” D if we say tea, storm the door.
D, shall we go? He go ahead and does inspiring aura, so everyone feels overcome by a positive glow, looking al little taller and broader.
Through the door the fancy atrium awaits. There are 5 floors w/ an angled mirror and the light glows down from the ceiling. P easily spots15 guys. The doors burst open. On ever floor there are 3 guys (15) The red dots are dancing on the floor. There is a lady sitting at a table in the middle. It is Varnesha. She jumps at the sight on the inq. D where is Iara? V she has sent me to speak with you. Without thinking she looks up, “she has sent me to talk and come up with whatever arrangement we come to. She has a letter and an ornate wooden box. “ I have been sent w this letter and box, let me read to you. “to the noble inq that have come here to Presta., I realized that we have been lead astray by the Simior fam. We offer our steepest apologies. I have learned that that even my beloved nephew was a heretic, the green flame. Varnesha, starts to shake. We have started to cleanse our house, as proof open the box. Varnesha opens the box and starts to vomit.
The face looks familiar to T, but does not reclog. “Varnesha, who is this?” “this is blllllaaaaaaagggg, this is Derren scimiors the hear of that family.”
T picks up and finishes the letter, “ as you can see we have dealt harshly with those who have transgressed against him. Any further transgressions will de stabilized Presta, we will gladly take our leave and be exiled.
D &Z evaulate the situ, and that the way to access the other floors is an elevator. Guarded are 2 dudes with chain swords with heavy stubber, each floor has
The group retreats to discuss a course of action. The terms of surrender: She supplies names of everyone involved, she must bear witness to their executions, surrender herself into custody for transport to the exile planet of our choosing. Varnesha heads to the ele shaft with the message. It stops at the top floor. She disappears for awhile. She comes back to the ele and comes down after 30 min.
She comes out the meet crew. My aunt Iara has accepted your terms and requests that you come to meet with her. D” we agree” He radios, “ they have surrendered”. D to V “ tell the soldiers that you have surrendered.” She looks back and forth as T emphasizes this. She takes his radio and speaks. “Lady Iara has come to an arrangement with the Inq, and they are to be treated as guests? D” come in an orderly fashion, do not shoot.” D” you must state that she has surrendered” She hesitantly gets on the radio and admits that surrender”
V takes them up the grelevator or grift to the top. 3 dudes w/ long las. A dude huddled behind the balcony. There is an imperial psycher hiding. V leads them down a long hall down to some 2x doors. Inside is a large open room. 4ft+ and 1 wall of windows. 1- soldiers. The room is very empty except for 1 desk where an older woman is sitting in a cape. Around her are several guards and 2 non descript looking men that appear to be psychers. The team sees 3 ornithopers hovering in the distance with snipers. Everything is at a standstill. She looks similar to the LG. As she stands, she speaks, “ ihave made some mistakes in who I have chosen to trust. I see that the terms of the arraignments are agreed upon. You wish a list of heretics and my family will be spared and I will be exiled. D: we will provide transportation, and you will be as safe as we can make it, once on the planet you must make it what you may. D’ yes” V I place myself in your hands “D then come with us. “ They take V and Era back to the Zolo com#. She names her husband, who is an older senile man in the apartments, and the entire Simior fam, and then the green flame. She seems genuinely defeated and telling the truth. D’ who does she want to be in charge’. The crew gives orders to gather the heretics. P” where is the other acolyte, Aurelia. “ EO, I’m afraid I do not know anything about where she is or where she is going” D detects anger in her voice, “what did she do to make you angry, has she wronged you? E “I do not know what to say” D gets papers drawn up for the conditions and a report for LG. Z makes a request to use the Green flames bolt pistol for the execution. D asks what the standard execution is on Presta. ERA” we are civilized, we execute our prisoners by lethal injection. “ T confirms this. D, asks around about A, but gets nothing.
Crew decides to send her to a planet to st drusis, it’s a giant desert. It is planet where people go to worship the st and then wander and die in the desert. See p.323. Sentinel. She puts Varnesha in charge of the family.
In total there end up being only 2 more scimiors and the husband. They organize the press release. And round up people Pand Z stand on the scaffolding as they proclaim their innocence through their gags. The tears stream down their faces. At the base of the spire the masses have gathered. Iara is in cuffs standing to the side of the scaffolding. The scimiors are up first. Pris raises her swords. D broadcasts the press release, “we stand before you, servants of the emp to right the wrong committed on this planet, you have hear my voice before, and I have the word of the LO. The justice of the emperor is clear and demands action that sets an example to those that do not heed the emp. Z in disturbing voice, heresy will not be tolerated. P: May your heads roll like emperors divine glory. The blade slices right through. Blood splatters and the crowd is dead silent. They don’t move because they have been instructed to watch. The other executions go as planned and a weak cheer peppers the crowd. They are afraid. Iara stands there stoic. She does not flinch or anything with the heads. He is resigned.
Next time they bought some more Prestan black. Drake goes into the fancy district and goes window shopping for fancy clothes for the next time he sees lady grey (character goal). Drake finds a nice sash with an Eagle and an inquisition logo. A memento from his LO has been dropped at sentinel, and crew is back on scintilla.
