Into that Vast Expanse

After realizing the full taint this system faced the Lord-Captain ordered investigation of “The Wanderer”. I counseled that perhaps it would be best to simply destroy the foul rogue planet, however the Lord-Captain ordered a close in scan. My fears were realized as the crew psyker was subject to possession from a daemonic presence. Had our Choir-Master not been as strong willed the presence might have been far more difficult to deal with. The craft was allowed to dock and the pilot was recovered and is being kept under close observation, however the warp still lingered on the craft and corpse of the psyker. Both were cleansed.

Thunderwrath thinks that we may be able to bless the lance battery to purify the shattered hell-mouth and I have sent out inquiries to my military, inquisitorial and even my few Astartes contacts for assistance in helping to purge the taint within this system. Hopefully something will turn up or I fear we may need to simply declare this place Anathaema to human life and seek a new system for our colony.

Nun, a place I could almost call comfortable. It’s atmosphere poisoned only marginally more than Krieg. The Lord-Captain ordered full void-seal, though I suspect my normal away mission attire would have more than sufficed. The bulky suits felt like overkill.

We set out to find any suitable untainted archeotech for exploitation and landed on what appeared to be a hab-block of sorts. Like all other construction we have seen the hedonism and decadence was evident in their spacious, near opulent, construction. We quickly discovered however that this building was infested with some kind of rodent-beast. We were set upon by these creatures and forced to flee back to the rooftop. If these monsters were the corrupted mutations of the former inhabitants or filthy xeno it made no matter. The Emperor’s purifying light touched them and granted them judgment the same. They appeared to be some kind of hive with an obvious “queen” that we dispatched handily. Structural damage was minor.

I suspect the Lord-Captain will still seek to investigate this scarred hive, though we now know it is not as dead as it seems and will need to go back with more appropriate force. I have to admit, I am actually a bit excited for the inevitable exterminatus we shall have to conduct. Perhaps I can speak to our Engineseer, his knowledge of biology is vast, and develop a virus bomb to poison these pests…
