I first posted this to the old forums, so I desided to post this here too.. Sorry for the "double post"
Now when I have your attention, this is my question:
What would happen in 5 millennium?
So, here's the deal.
I put my acolytes to find a bunker and bring something back from there. (They don't know what or why, because they are assisting another Inquisitor's group in this mission and their own Inquisitor asked them to spy what is going on)
So they find this bunker and got inside. After much searching and wondering and breaking & entering they found what they were looking for.
Inside of the bunker is cut off from the outside world. No animal can find their way inside. Not hermetically sealed, but tight anyway. There are two servitors standing in one corner (gun servitor and cargo-servitor, both turned off). There was also on corpse on the floor, turned to skeleton, all clothing rotted off.
There is one storage room, air tight. Inside there is lots of guns and ammo. (Lasguns, autoguns and one inferno pistol and clips to every gun)
And there is also this laboratory, this one IS hermetically sealed. There is two corpses on the floor with one broken glass between them. And inside observation room where is thick window to laboratory was one corpse, hole through the skull.
There is storage room in that laboratory where air temperature is held under -200 Celsius or something similar.(Could it be still that cold in there?) There be also four metallic storage tubes, similar to that what was broken on the laboratory room.
Also, they managed to start up cogitator in the corner of that laboratory and found out that last entry was made in the 35th millennium.
So, what would have happened to the bodies, to guns (parts inside the guns), to servitors and so on in 5000 years? In hermetically sealed room and in "normally" sealed bunker? Could the guns and the clips work normally? Or would the lasclips and flamer fuel have leaked dry? Would the seals and other plastic parts of the guns have deteriorated and dried so that they won't work without extensive repairs? (there ARE 2 tech-priest in this mission..)
Anyway, all the players know is that something terrible happened that killed people inside and others runned for their life and sealed the bunker tight.
Ideas and thoughts, anyone?
