I'm GMing the Illumination adventure from the Core rulebook.
The Acolytes are participating at the morning rites on the day of the consecration of the Cathedral, when Fanatics attack Stern Hope.
Our Psyker goes to the entrance of the Cathedral, and looks down at the Fanatics coming his way. While all the people inside the Cathedral run for cover, he uses the power of Fear, assuming a demonic visage, and also roll a 9, summoning ululating winds that knock the congregation on the ground.
Most of the people present started running in fear, or collapsed on the ground, while Brother Lamark and Severus moved on the Psyker to stop him. So the party killed Severus to protect the Psyker, and they wounded Lamark.
That's were we stopped our session. Now the question is, what will the consequences be for our Psycher?
I was thinking that, since the attack is still in progress, he may escape from the crowd, and try to hide somewhere, but eventually he'll have to show up (to keep playing…).
Should I be lenient, and have Aristarchus and Abbot Skae consider this just an "accident", or should I be more heavy-handed?
thanks in advance.
