Battle Report: The Rogue Informant

Last Week I played another nice Pulp Alley Rogue Trader game with my friend.
He chose to use my Jokerz gang while I played with my Netherworld Cabal ( Radical Horusian Inquisitors).

Background:
41 millenium, Somewhere in a ship in orbit of a death world with an colonial outpost.

The Inquisitor was in meditation, contemplating a sacred representation of the immortal Emperor of mankind.
His thoughts were focused on the sacred mission of his order: the emperor's rebirth.
Any means would justify this divine purpose. Any sacrifice would be accepted.
His thoughts were interrupted, one of his loyal followers came to deliver news.
Rajura: "My Lord, we received a message from our rogue informant, he is ready to meet us..."
Arago: "This is good... but I suppose he tried to sell his informations to some unbelievers, before accept our offer..."
Rajura: "Unfortunately your are right, my lord... We know that a rogue harlequin and his gang could give us some problems during the meeting..."
Arago: "Do not worry my son... Nobody will prevent us from fulfilling our sacred duty..."
Then the Inquisitor and his follower joined the cabal for the imminent landing.
