Battle Report: The Enemy inside

The first scenario of my new rogue trader campaign played a week ago.
Here the Battle Report. This time I played with a new league, while my player still used his old league.

borderline world of Issus: imperial settlement
Judge Griffin received his new appointment: to submit the locals to the Imperium will.
His first mission is to investigate about something odd on a small settlement on the planet.
A personality of the settlement is suspected to be a vampire. The Judge must investigate.
The Jokerz Gang is working in the surroundings of the settlement and it is likely will interfere with the judge's duty.
The judge griffin listened the relationship from his scribe. The borderline world of Issus was just recently annexed to the Imperium, and yet many troubles were evident.
"Ensure the right imperial order in worlds without law is an hard duty but it will be done. All the enemies of the Emperor will be punished!"

Overview of the board

Minor plot point (relic) Perilious area (Sunworms)

Minor plot point: wounded eldar

Minor plot point: imperial guard guarding imperial outpost

Minor plot point: rogue trader Captain Amelia

Major plot point (and hostile bystander): the changeling Vampire.
Special: the vampire is changed in one of the human bystanders, when a character will move in contact with it, with a roll of 4+ there is a chance that that bystander is the vampire

Suspected Vampires, the other characters are bystanders:

The Mayor

the customer of the hookers

the trader

the human mercenary leader

the informant

the chief worker

Bystanders: as usual they could be hostile or allies of the players.

The Joker has the vampire in his hands and now he run away laughing as a crazy guy (because HE is really crazy).
Joker: "Welcome in my amusement park, judge! Try to catch me, if you want... BATMAN! AhahAhahahaAhahaha!!" 😂

But the judge his too busy with Dee Dee. She charge him and keeps him busy for all the time. She is down a pair of time but always recovery in the next turn.
Judge Griffin: "Silly little girl! You are obstructing the LAW!"
Dee Dee: "Don't you like to play with me, daddy?"  😉

Goodman win the minor plot point and speak with the imperial guard.
Imperial Guard: "Something strange is happening in this places... Strange alien creatures are wandering in the jungle, and they don't seem native animals..."
Goodman: "Your informations could be useful, follow me, we will speak with the Judge."

Carla run and shoot to the Joker, but she is KO, losing her minor plot point.
Joker: Nice try darling, but you could not defeat Mr. J, this is my game! Maybe next time you will be luckier! 😁

Goodman is KO too, defeated by the Joker too. He lose his minor plot point too.
Goodman: "That's not good... the Judge will not be happy..." 😓

Ezechiel win the minor plot point.
Rogue Trader: "In my recent trips, I've heard weird news about this planet and some of the people behaves strangely... something fishy is happening, believe me..."

The Jokerz Gang win the scenario, gaining 3 victory points for the major plot point.
The Adeptus Arbites league had 4 victory points (1 for each of the 4 minor plot points), but two minor plot poits were lost and then only two victory points were obtained.
