Battle Report: The Unholy Nest

the ninth and last scenario of my rogue trader campaign.
I played it this summer but I just published it now (because I'm lazy).

Background
borderline world of Issus (called "Somewhere" by the settlers).

deep in the underground of the imperial palace...

The Patriarch could sense the presence of the intruders...
Fools, he thought, they had come to destroy him, hoping to finally stop the cult...
...but even if they were succesful, the Cult could rise again, stronger than before...

...So let them come to me...

The Batte Report:

Arago: "Here we are, my brothers... the Unholy Beast is in front of us... the evil must be purified!"
in the first skirmish a Genestealer is KO.

The Patriarch seem yet defeated, but he will recover in the next turn.
Arago: "The Jokerz are trying to steal our prey, I don't know what is their insane plan, but they must NOT interfere with our holy crusade..."
Harley Quinn is KO.
Harley Quinn: "I hate when this happens! Then I will lose all the fun!" 😭

The Patriarch is down again but he is strong and will survive for another turn.
Another Genestealer and Krana are KO.
Joker: "Let me help you, my dear Inquisitor... 💖 Surely I'm not planning to steal the honor of defeating the Big Bad Guy... or maybe this is what I'm really planning?" 😁
Kayura: "Seriously? This stupid joke was your goal from the beginning?" 😒

Finally the Patriarch is defeated by the Cabal.
Arago: "Well done my brothers! This is a day we will remember for a long time, we have finally punt and end to the evil embodied and his infestation! Praise the Emperor God!"
Joker: "That's not funny! You cheated! I want to play again!" 😫

with his last breath, the Patriarch sent a psychic signal somewhere in the planet... where something sleepep woke up... ready to serve the brood...

The Netherworld Cabal defeated the major plot point patriarch, gaining 3 victory point and winning the game and campaign.

  1. Somehow I feel certain The Joker will get another game out of this. :) Well done sir! Gorgeous as always. You have such incredible toys! (And you tell such splendid stories with them.) Glad to see a new Pulp Alley report, too. I will never get enough of that game.
