The Dead Below

Mission Dossier


++Mission Dossier
++Date: M41.815.0612
++Classified: Omega Epsilon
++Subject: Investigation “The Dead Below”
++Threat Rating: Minoris
++Location: Askellon Sector, Vanth
A contact within the vapour-mining operations conducted by the Rogue Trade House of Roth on the world of Vanth has received unconfirmed reports of an artefact of significant importance being sighted on the death-world. You are to make contact with Agent Mercutio on the sub-orbital waystation of Aincrad above the surface of Vanth. He will direct you further. The artefact in question is a small, crystalline item set in a gilded stone. Speed is of the essence - we do not know who else may be aware of the artefact but if the House of Roth has gotten wind of this you can be assured that they will be on the trail.
Your task, as dictated by His most Holy Inquisition, is as follows:

  • Contact Agent Mercutio - he will lead you to the supposed location.
  • Recover the artefact.
  • Do not under any circumstances make physical contact with the artefact, nor attempt to utilise it, nor speak in its presence. You will be provided with a stasis-chamber in which to place the item upon recovery, after which you may speak again.
  • Do not cause an interstellar incident. The last thing we need so early on in our deployment in Askellon is a war between the Inquisition and a powerful Rogue Trader house. Use discretion.
