The Briefing:Tcheng will deliver a briefing once on board the
. Note that he will always refer tothe acolytes as 'sir' – an astute acolyte, or one with a suitable military or inquisitorial lore willrealise that, as the only formally recognised inquisitorial acoltyes and without an explicator or interrogator along, they are the ranking officers on the mission. Tcheng will confirm this if asked but won't raise the subject himself unless he's waiting for them to make a decision – he assumesthey know. He will still offer advice as required.“I'm afraid, sirs, that there is limited information to go on. We've been mobilized by the Officio onan emergency basis to investigate – not as part of a planned operation. Inquisitor Haeth is not amember of the Ordos Calixis, but from outside the sector. As a result the Officio Planetia doesn'thave much information about what he's doing in the Calixis sector and the beacon doesn't give usmuch more.”
Tcheng has no further information about Haeth. Questions about which sector or Ordo he's fromwill go unanswered. Which, given the truth (Ordo Sicarius) is probably better for the party's sanity.
“What we do have to go on seems to have triggered a major alert. The Inquisitor had disabled awanted ship called the
, and moved in to board it.”
Tcheng will be aware that the Wanderlust was involved in the Bastion incident but doesn't know anydetails.
“It's my understanding that Inquisitor Haeth hunting for someone, and that the
hadrendezvoused with another ship from out-sector and taken them on board. We don't really knowwhom, though. That's......almost all I've been told, sirs.
No doubt someone will want to know what 'almost' means...
“We do have one thing; a threat warning. Hereticus Terminus Ultima, sirs.”
