The last one is on your side, Herald (or so we hope)

Invited Ambrose to dinner, hope that's ok.

You're missing an Inquisitor in your numbers, Herald.

Ambrose is one of four Inquisitors Burnett knows of (Barkley himself, Holst, Hallona & Haines) and Burnett was having dinner with both Riley and Madoc.
S.Sgt Silva Birgen: "Good evening, we're here from the Adeptus Defenestratus."
Captain L. Rollin: "Nonsense. Never heard of it."
Birgen: "Pick a window. I'll demonstrate".

I'm somehow back on... this intermittent activity is getting annoying.

For anyone that would like to know, Haines looks like this (notably, EVE doesn't let you render beards, so he looks like a weird cross between Geezer Butler, Richard Branson, and Noel Edmonds, but strangely enough it works), and Andreas looks like this (and yes, the back of his skull is made of metal)

I'll get my next update up either tonight (as I said I would) or tomorrow morning (if worst comes to worst).

Necris, if you're still here: I've weighed up the pros and cons of you writing your many-times-aborted intro post out, and decided that it must've been so stressful for you to write that changing the pace of the story might at least let you get something new (and decidedly less stressful) down. I know I've encountered this before, where perfectly good posts just refuse to go live, and letting the story flow for a bit before adapting to the new development just helped me get it out of my system, so hopefully it'll do the trick for you as well. That's not to say I don't still want you on board -- I do -- but considering what the 'Clave is doing to us all, it's best to avoid getting worked up as much as possible.

Herald: I've noticed a ship called the Spear of Light -- should I assume this is one of the system monitor ships / escort vessels, to which you've given a name?

double

I'm going to split this up over tonight and tomorrow, purely because the cliffhanger gives you a bit of time to react to what this "situation" might be (don't worry, it's not Semplice being discovered -- it's rather a lot more major than that)

'clave seems to be working - at least for the last five minutes. Tempted to post a corrected version of the bios - there are a few typos and a rather crucial missing word (Namely, that Jacques' revolver may be loaded with magical/daemonic ammunition on occasion).

Also, assuming I keep this connexion, will read the IC post and get cracking on my introduction. I don't think it's too big a worry if the Maimed arrive late to the party - they are crashing, after all. What's the planet's unofficial name again?

spear of light is some ship in the interdicition fleet i've given a name to. I assumed the admiral didn't know about haines as he only got sent hallona's, ambrose's and holst's codes so doesnt actually know haines is there

While only one set of Inquisitorial codes was necessary to grant the right to be in interdicted space, I assure you that Lord-Captain Mason did report Haines' presence:

Quote
"He wishes to extend his personal greetings and an invitation for both you and Madoc to meet and dine with him aboard the Asculum."
"Serendipity.", a smile appeared on her lips, "Yes, confirm his invitation. And do so on Lord Haines' behalf too."

:P

Good to see you back Sargy.

Welcome back! I'll delete the post I made, if you do present an updated set of bios.

Absolutely, but it might be best to wait until after I've finished resolving the "situation" on the Asculum's bridge. Speaking of which, I just realised that there's not an awful lot to which you guys can really respond, but working out who's doing what, going where, etc. would be useful, so that I don't forget about people's servants or suggest that they're in two places at once (or neither) once things start rolling.

The latest character to be introduced was drawn up together with Sargy a few years ago, including his apparent allegiance. I just never got around to doing an awful lot with him until now.

I'm assuming this is the dark eldar? I don't recall them at all... Far too much meth betwen now and then, clearly. Will post updated bios and get you an introduction in a day or two.

I've posted a passage posted on Koval's behalf, given he's suffering issues getting on the forum.

It can be assumed that any companions that you thought may have been with you have escaped by other means.

Double.

And I've posted something of my own based on one possible result of having a huge Inquisitor tripping onto an Inquisitrix about half his weight.
Hope you guys like writing confused Inquisitrixes, because she's probably going to start becoming considerably less coherent when the concussion kicks in proper.

I have access again. (This is probably going to become my most frequent post-starter in this OOC from here on in, after some variation on "multiple post")

To all fans of Mass Effect: I couldn't help myself when I was writing that -- Sovereign has exactly the same emotionless contempt for "inferior beings" that I want to portray in Zagan, so what started as a shout-out somehow evolved into line-borrowing.

To anyone that wants to know what Zagan's ship is: An Exorcist-class grand cruiser has guns on the top and launch bays underneath. Originally the ship was just going to be a heavily modified Vengeance-class, with the gun decks hollowed out to make room for launch bays, but I decided that explaining that in-character was just too complicated, so the ship evolved into an Exorcist so that I could avoid a headache later on.

The guns, in this instance, are laser batteries -- Zagan's been around for long enough that not having to care about stocking up on macrocannon shells is a matter of convenience.
