The guard streams in through the open door, but what horror awaits.
They try to convince the guards still in the control room to join them and help, but father xylex comes over the intercom to tell them that the anointed day actually means creatures coming from beyond the veil.
Below them on the floor of the bay, there are a lot of chaos horrors, and troops from the hive streaming into the room, apparently getting ready for a fight. Lots of different kinds of mutations, here-tech and weird technology, as well as servitors. There are several light armored troop carriers, and one tank of some type.
Tybalt gets on the intercom and convinces the sentinel pilots that father xylex is being impersonated, and that they should fire on the chaos troops below them. Guard troops begin dropping in from above on grav chutes (crappy jump packs, that only go down basically)
They start firing down from the wasp’s nest. Priss (as played by erin) shoots a heavy bolter down and disables a troop carrier. Tord fires a grenade launcher down but misses, he’s not used to being so far away from an enemy.
While firing down, some kind of creature starts climbing up the walls from below down, and the tank down below started firing up above, blowing away part of the wasp’s nest. Pris tries to fire down at the tank, but it blows away a large portion of the floor, almost causing a couple of them to fall to the bottom of the bay. Dariel manages to jinx the main cannon on the tank, and the party starts to head back to the tram that brought them to the nest.
Several hundred guardsmen have dropped down through the gate, and some valkyrie dropships are bringing down large cargo containers. The summoning circle seems to be activating though, as the circle drops down into a large pit, and out of it spring a variety of tentacles, including some on fire, or some with weird manipulators. The tentacles are 60 meters tall, and so extend out of the top door, and one ship is smashed by a tentacle as it attempts to land. The cultists burst into multicolored flame around the circle. As the party looks down at the horrors of the warp, some of them grow more insane.
Dariel gets the sense from watching the scene and viewing the psychic scene, he gets the sense that all of the psychic energy from the death and destruction is getting siphoned off. This seems similar to the original plan they were here to stop, but it seems to be drawn downward, deeper into the hive.
