There is still time to jump in BA.  The only slight hitch is that Lynn has already put up an assassin.  I a, not sure that 2 such would really work.  Do you have an alternative?  So far no one has suggest tech priest, cleric or arbites.

All this Dark Heresy talk has me dangerously close to saying I'll do a second edition game.

There might just be time.  Any thoughts on a character and how quick could you put one together?

I was thinking a Cleric (to keep the variety), but rather than the usual firebrand a Blighted Schola survivor who's become a Medicantine Missionary to survive. (The Missionary's lack of money and survival based skills also complement the Blighted Schola background of having had Puritans take out the organisation you once worked for).

If that background's ok by you, Digger, I can get stats rolled up in a jiffy.

Sounds good, so go ahead.

Which book(s) have that background?

Medicantine Missionary is from the Inquisitor's Handbook as a background package, Blighted Schola is an alternate origin from the Radical's Handbook.

Got some quite good rolls (In spoiler below), using Emperor's Mercy on Perception.

Raltus Vanderblat

'Know Thy Enemy'

- Imperial Scripture

'Is it not written, 'Knowledge is power, guard it well'? It follows that to fight in ignorance of a foe is to hand him power; to hand him power is to lose the war.

'What, then, do we know of the Great Enemy?...'

- 'On Causality', Zaharias Davlin (banned, book from Library collection of Crissol IV Scholam)

'... chambers of rune-carved pentacles, lab upon lab fied with the mewling results of their vile experiments, a blood-stained stone altar and a thrice-warded chamber our Wyrd violently insisted was best left unopened... '

- extract from report of Cell AM-13 on infiltrating 'blighted' Schola Progenium facility on Crissol IV

"Heresy! Heresy! Damned Heresy!"

- Inquisitor Glaxius Wroth condemns Crissol IV

'... Files recovered from the Library pre-strike detail identities of over three hundred Radical sleeper agents within Imperial organisations, often entered under false identities. With the facility destroyed, we can only conjecture as to the existence of other, unknown Radical agents still at large...'

- Report of Interrogator Braxus de Melley following destruction of Crissol IV

"Hello. My name is Raltus Vanderblat."
- Raltus Vanderblat

All looks fine.

Is that all or do you have questions?  If you are ready I will introduce you to the main scene.

I'm ready to go, I think. Do we know each other/who we're working for?

Not sorted out yet.

I am assuming the others will know each other from a previous mission but you will be new.

I have to go out now for a couple of hours but then I will have their contact introduce you as a new member.  The mission could do with someone with Forbidden Lore and Scholastic Lore skills which is why you have been selected to join.
