So ive been thinking of some interesting things to do to my players fr RT. Also none of them are as profecient in 40k lore as i am. So ive come up with some interesting ideas for encounters or missions, here they are in brief.
They find the corpses of 2 marines who were locked in mortal combat, each one has killed the other in some form of deadly embrace. One weilds a blue power sword the other a rusty looking (yet extremly well crafted) sword. The one carrying the rusted blade (with a proper knowledge check) belongs to the Relictors chapter of space marines.
An encounter with the infamous former rogue trader Edward Teach, wanted preferably dead for acts of piracy.
They find a ship drifting through space, on board they find the shell of a chaos land raider bound within hexagrammic wards, along with the diaries of a radical inquisitor...
Cybertron....aka the planet of iron, a planet that was colonized by the men of iron and is now a techpriests worst nightmare/ ultimate dream come true.
They find a uptill now unseen anomoly in which a set of binary stars orbit each other so closely that they feed off one another...
thats just some ill post more as i think of them. Enjoy
