Battle Report: The Temple of Heaven

Some weeks ago I played the fourth scenario of my rogue trader (Pulp Alley rules) campaign with my usual player.

41 millenium, Somewhere in the deep jungle of a death world far away from a colonial outpost.

The Joker was elated (more than usual). The last skirmish was won, and this is was good.
Then he should only find the "Temple of Heaven" as said the cob-head guy and he will finally find the legendary Key of Graciale...
He was still not sure about what really IS the Key of Graciale and WHAT it could do... but who cares? Surely it will be a nice trophy and if could be useful for some nice jokes, that's better!
Then the Joker was distracted from his thoughts by the big ugly man near him.
Joker: "Oh! YesYes! I didn't forgot you my old friend! Thank you for your precious help! Here your reward."  :D
The Joker shook hands vigorously with Bane, the handshake of Bane was stronger and the Joker squeaked in pain...
Joker: "Ouch! ... and here your payment too, of course..."  :-X ;)
Bane grunted and took the imperial credits, then without saying a word left the room... meanwhile a woman and a strange little guy entered...
Harleen "Bane... Sociable as usual... Hi, Mr J you requested our assistance, then we are to join the game"  :D
The strange little guy said nothing, just laughed...
Joker: "Welcome my dearest friends! Bane is a good guy... well, really it's not but he does its work well... however I need more enthusiastic players for this game...
Prepare yourself we must go to heaven... AhahAhahahaAhahahAHahaha!!"  lol
