This is my first time writing an adventure for an RPG so I'm looking for some help to improve it, so I thought posting it here would help. I've included the outline of what my idea is:
On the manufactorum planet of *, there exists several trade union type groups. One of the largest is Tradept Manus. Within them are 2 groups - one of them are radicals seeking new technoogy and new methods of doing things to improve efficiency and create new weapons to deliver and bigger and better tithe. The other are conservatives -
believing in getting cheaper labour and more labour to do the same old stuff but making it cheaper. There has been conflict before - not something you want between two groups who produce vast quantities of weaponry and thus have lots of power. The planet is vital to the imperium and if it were destoryed would be devastating.
Recently the management of the Tradept Manus has changed, and around that time there were increasing numbers of disapperances and manufacturing accidents where no body was ever found. Conflict began to reignite between the two groups when they accused each other of sabotage over the accidents. Sporadic skirmishes of troops began swelling into more open conflict. The Imperium was busy with a large Ork offensive and approached the Black Horizon mercenary group to restore peace, along with the local Arbites. There is now a tense standoff. Strange xenos residue has been found near the accident sites and the Inquistion wants the acolytes to get to the bottom of theconflict between the groups and the disapperances - which they believe to be linked.
It turns out the new management are almost all offworlders, who are bery secretive. Some snooping in their offices reveals them to be almost never there. Sneaking into their property uncovers hidden rooms full of xenos technology. In addition the radical sub group of the Tradept Manus has been recieving new technology which they've been using to get one up on the other group.
Actually, the 'new management' are genestealer cult - the 'accidents' and disapperances of Trade staff were organized by them to gain more minions, and after extensive facial surgery and induction were introduced as middle managers to implement their masters plans - conflict between the two groups to weaken them so the Tyranid splinter fleet could destroy the planet far more easily.
The conflict would provide cover for their lictors and other creatures, they cut off the gun and ammo supply to the local troops making the planet easy pickings.
The acoyltes will have to snoop around peoples offices and houses to gain details - were the new xenos shipments are coming from, who is ordering the skirmishes etc. Eventually this will lead them to the boss of the Tradept Manus or the Patriach of the genestealer cult.
Thanks for reading, please give me some feedback,
