I had a rather unpleasant trip back (cancelled trains, getting sent to catch other trains I wasn't actually allowed to, then the train I could actually take getting held up because the replacement train crew were late), but the event went well from my perspective. It didn't turn up any major rules hiccups, although there were a few things I made note of (although you might not have noticed all of them, as I managed to handle some of them on the fly). Mostly it just demonstrated I should sort out a better quick reference sheet...

We managed to get some fair use out of the Paraelix terrain (but I do still need to sort out more doors for it!). Although the plasma generator did try fairly hard, it didn't quite manage to run its batteries flat by the end of the day.

I'll probably expand this at some point*, but so that the events of the day are properly bookended, the epilogue:
*I want to sort out a wiki for the Abraxis project, but I'm also wondering whether it should just be an extension to the Carthax Wiki to keep it alongside all the existing gameplay/rules articles on there.

The Guardian proved to be utterly arcane machinery. Although based on similar technologies to the Gellar Field, magnifying those effects to affect a warp storm required the use of sorcerous techniques, and so, many millennia ago, Inquisitor Orestes struck the machine from the Inquisition archives - not out of fear of the machine itself, but out of what the close-minded might do to it if they became aware of its method.

His fears were not unjustified. The only Inquisitor present chose to do just that - or at least, he would have, had the Winterholme sextuplets, champions of Slaanesh, not beaten him to it.
The efforts of Virag Kondas ("The Stormhunter") and Andrei Sweeney (a heavily overwhelmed gangster, deceived into his part in the matter by an undercover Inquisitor) proved in vein, even with the assistance of Helena Van Brasing, the latest in the line of the Van Brasing daemon-hunters - and first cousin, one-hundred-and-seven-times-removed, to the Winterholmes themselves.

Although the Guardian may be repairable with time, as many records and blueprints were uncovered in the investigation to find the machine, it has, for now, not been fired.
As such, warp travel into and throughout the Abraxis sector will be even more wildly perilous than normal for many months, if not years or decades. The veil of reality will be stretched thin - ruptures and incursions into real space are likely to become more commonplace for a long time.

Whether or not Inquisitor Krohnweil is willing to openly shoulder the responsibility for this outcome remains to be seen.

There's been a lot of game reports posted on the Ammobunker thread, starting part way down page 4 - both Euan and Richard have extended their thanks and appreciation for your involvement, Genghis:

I had a great time on Sat, thank-you MarkoSkoll for putting it all together.  This is now woven into Andrei the space mobster's story - he'll tell anyone who'll listen how he single-handedly killed an inter-dimensional space daemon with a single shot to the head (conveniently glossing over all the other shots put into it by everyone else present).

I will try to be in attendance to try to avoid another session being missed, but the journey back from Nottingham managed to end up resoundingly on the list of the worst train journeys I've ever had, and it's taken a lot out of me, so I might be a bit subdued.

I realised that even though I won't have converted all the daemonette sextuplets before the event this weekend, I'd failed to show anything of this one:



She's not completely finished (she still needs her hair, loincloth and bracers sorted, as well as a little clean up, but I intend to handle that tonight), but it does give a rough idea of where I'm going.

As far as the pose giving her only one weapon compared to the pair that most daemonettes wield, I'm currently working with the idea that their daggers and claws are summoned/morphed at will. Although it's perhaps slightly towards the Tzeenchian end of the spectrum to have a daemon morphing themselves, I think it's a plausible enough effect for a daemonette - I can see a certain creepy beauty in a claw morphing away into a slender hand as they stand over their latest victim.

Spaces are filling up for Salute, so our chances are getting slimmer if we have to leave this much longer. I'm not necessarily expecting concrete answers at this stage (as long as we have enough answers, a team can be built out of them one way or another), but we do need some kind of answers.

An appearance at Salute could theoretically be a really big boost for the Inquisitor community, so I'd really like to see it happen - even if it only brought in (or back) a few players, that'd be a fair amount as far as events were concerned.

I think the reduced size looks much better. It's still kind of big, but I think it creates a nice contrast with the smaller-framed character. Intrigued to see where you take the sculpting.

The smaller bolter looks much better.
