Anu, with Darrius the Rubric Marine in toe and minus the hunting party, start their trek back to the landing field where Anu began. It's quiet and boring with no one or things want to disturb a sorcerer and his bodyguard.

Anu regards the sky of Alactia and the orbit around it. Voidships are sprinkled about as they get worked on by the Magi Morbos, the local Heretek group with an allegiance to Nurgle, but something catches his trained eyes. A shuttle, an Arvus Lighter, descending down at great speed. It comes screaming over you and violently flairs out and descends between two great towers of junk with expert precision. Who ever was piloting that shuttle was good... really good.

Anu's eyes return back to the sky as he hears something else approaching. He see's why the shuttle was in a hurry. Two Hell Blades come racing down the same route and pass right over Anu and Darrius.

"Eyes in the sky but not on the ground." Darrius comments when the Hell Blades scream by not seeing where the shuttle went.

What is in that shuttle that someone would send two Hell Blades after it?

“Most curious,” said Anu to Darrius. “I wonder who they are...and what they’re running from.”



Sliding into any available cover, Anu looks closer at the ship and checks the magazine on his bolter to ensure it is full. He motions for Darrius to do the same. A ship is good...a ship with a pilot is better. And a pilot who can fly like that may be quite useful indeed.

Anu checks his equipment and he's in good shape. He didn't spent any rounds in the fight with the hunting party. Darrius informs Anu he's down one regular bolter mag and a few Tzeentchian Inferno Bolts shy. Other then that he's fine.

Anu's eyes go back over to where he saw the shuttle land and locates it. It's hull is glowing red from its quick atmospheric entry. He notes a marking on the side of the shuttle.

[Common Lore (Sceaming Vortex) roll to ID that marking.]

The back ramp then lowers itself to the ground and a lone figure emerges armed with a shotgun. No one else emerges from the shuttle. The figure starts to take in his surroundings. He seems to think it safe and relaxes himself as he just stands at the edge of the ramp looking outward. It looks like he's waiting for someone.

Anu watches as, what he assumes is the pilot, leaves the ship. He spots the shotgun but dismisses it- either he or Darrius could dispatch the mortal before it became a problem. When he sees the pilot relax he smiles and stands up motioning for hos rubicae to follow.

The sorceror walks forward ensuring his weapons remain maglocked to his armour although Darrius kept his bolter ready

"Good day to you, the Changer of Ways is kind to you, because today is your lucky day."

[From the knowledge roll: The marking on the shuttle is that of Captain Korgin 'The World Reaver'. One of the Vortex's most powerful warlords.]

The pilot's attention and shotgun snaps to Anu who comes out from the planets wreckage. Anu can see the pilot is female.

She then spots Darrius close behind the Sorcerer. She knows she's not even remotely a match with them in single combat. She lowers her shotgun.

"My day has already been full of luck. Hopefully it wants to continue with you two." She says.

[Give me an +0 Awareness Roll]

Awareness:
 

Anu watched the shotgun come up then go down again. Cautious but not stupid - a good combination.

"My luck has also been good today - hopefully we can both contunue our streak. I assume you are either fleeing The Reaver or fleeing his enemies. That makes whatever you have valuable - extra protection will work well for you regardless of your destination." He smiles although the helm if his warplate hides it and the vox takes any emotion from his voice "I on the othet hand have grown bored of this dreary place - so perhaps we could come to a mutually beneficial arrangement."

Anu takes a glance around and spots four Magi Morbos members, with a large group of thin and sickly looking humans, making their way towards the Arvus.

"I see you know about Korgin. Yeah, I could us some protection and y'all could use a free ride off this rock. So, yeah, sounds good to me." The pilot says as her eyes look past Anu. He knows whats she's looking at. The Magi Morbos group.

"I have some cargo I need to barter away before we can go." She starts to walk between Darrius and Anu, "Could use some backup if you two don't mind."

She continues off towards the Magi Morbos group. Darrius looks at her then at Anu to see what he wants to do.

Anu nods to Darrius and follows behind the pilot, he considers drawing a weapon but decides against it, he would be quick enough if battle was required. Closing rhe gap with his longer stride he speaks as quietly as he can

"How are we doing this? I assume they have something you want? I am Anu by the way."

"I'm, Wes. I struck a deal with these Magos Morbos guys. Some chemical weapons for some goods and info that can help me, and now you, get off this rock."

The group comes up to the Magos Morbos members and their thralls. The thralls carry an assortment of containers.

The Hereteks seem to hesitate for a moment spotting the Astartes alongside Wes but eventually one of them comes forward to meet you.

"Pilot Wes," the Magos says in a thick wheeze, "I see you brought friends along. I didn't know Korgin kept followers of Tzeentch at his disposable." He nods to Anu and Darrious in kind then focuses back on Wes, "The chemicals?"

Wes points back to the Arvus, "They're onboard. You bring my goods?"

The thralls bring up the containers and set them down. Wes goes through them and nods her head, "Now what about that ship we talked about?"

The Magos either laughs or coughs. It's hard to tell, "I remember that we agreed to just exchange these goods for one another. There was no deal for a ship. Talk, yes, but nothing else."

"Things change and I have a need for something that can get me and my friends here far and away from Alactia. I don't think my Arvus is going to cut it. So nothing on a ship and no deal."

The Magos gets visibly irritated. The thralls and three other Magos seem to follow in his response, "This is not how we do business. What was agreed upon was agreed upon. You can not change the deal now!"

To begin with Anu remains silent merely watching the events unfold, it always interested him the conclusions people came to with little amount of information avliable - and the misinformation this Magos would spread by assuning the sorcerer snd rubicae had allegince to Korgin did provide him with some small amount of amusement.

When the Magos had his outburst though Anu cleared his throat
"Change is inevitable - if you resist such forces they can be thrust upon you. For example you say my pilot cannot change the deal - you are incorrect we can leave and find someone more willing to do bussiness, and these weapons will then be beyond your reach. A minor inconvenince for ourselves to be sure but you would be left with nothing - so perhaps you shouldn't resist change so much and we can make a deal thay is benefical for all involved."

Another cough from the lead Magos, "Change is not the true inevitable. Decay is the true inevitable. This decay we have seen, resisted, and have been born anew from it thanks to Nurgle's blessing. This deal is slowly decaying but something will be born a new from it. If you find someone new... so be it. Something new will become of our failed deal... for better or worse."

Wes looks up at Anu and then the Magos, "Give me a second."

Wes motions for Anu to come off to the side with here, 'What do you think? We can take the deal and not deal with the Magos' bullshit. Maybe even press them for other services no involving a ship. I don't know what these guys would do if I'd cross them. I fear they'll just tell Korgin that we're looking for a ship. Korgin isn't an idiot. He'll have his men lie in wait to get his revenge."
