    Of Great and Terrible Things

    ((I want to try making the test so it’s not just Father Thorne doing everything but it’ll be a target number of 20 for Estelia (30 Fel + 10 - 20 (untrained))) Estelia decides to take the lead “No, we’re looking to identify a vox code, could you point us in the right direction?” ((Spending a Fate point to increase the target number by 10) Roll: 75 re-roll: 85)) ((for I guess 5 DoF, it was a bit over a 50/50 chance I’d succeed with those fate points but sorry))

    Estelia moves to exit the store. When the group is (presumably) out of earshot of others, she asks, "is there anywhere we can look up vox codes without being too suspicious? Or maybe find other vox units that received calls from this number then track them? If we can find those codes inconspicuously, they might be less dangerous to trace directly. Then at least we can find out who whoever is buying these hankerchiefs is working with."

    The Novice seems a bit confused, “I’d not thought about it. Thou it is a pretty color,” she motions to the dress Ariel had indicated. ((Estelia is ready to leave if the others think it’s past time ))

    Estelia whispers to the others, “Is there any way to link the code to a specific person or location without actually hailing it and letting them know we have it?” Turning back to Cassa, the Novice asks, “There is a chance that I will have to blend in with higher society at some point, and all I have now is this,” she raps her flak plate with her fist, “and one of those,” she points at Ariel (specifically her robe). “Do you have anything that would fit in in such spaces while not restricting movement too much?” If there’s space Estelia will attempt a ‘simple’ backflip to demonstrate and pray to the Emperor she doesn’t fall on her face. ((45 Agility + 20 Acrobatics = 65 (flak is max Ag 50 but that doesn’t restrict skill bonuses iirc) Roll: 37 for 4 DoS))

    (Whispered to the others) “what should we do? I don’t want to upset her.” ((of those checks Intimidate is the one that would have the highest chance of success for Estelia at 40%))

    For reference, I've posted once or twice on r/40kRPG, though since a lot of my sensibilities regarding sisters are formed out of my conversations with Lynata, I don't usually have much of interest to add . However, on reddit, when I do appear, you will find me under the guise of the former home planet of the apostate Cardinal Bucharis ( which is Gathalamor). More importantly it's where the Great Confessor, Dolan, finally toppled the apostate and ended the Plague of Unbelief (and of course that's where Estelia Dolan's last name comes from). Something something you probably already knew all that.

    ((ah I missed that)) "Well, I suppose this belt is a bit crowded," Estelia fingers the bit of rope holding the flintlock to her waist, it was certainly not ideal, "I don't know how a person would normally carry something like this" She draws the weapon, holding it up so the woman can see it. "however, I believe that's not exactly why we're here?" She looks back to Father Thorne.

    The woman’s appearance was indeed strange, but so were the appearances of many they had seen. The Novice supposed this is the kind of thing that was meant when they were told the convents and Scholas were more strict in their conduct than the Imperium at large. More thinking out loud than anything else, Estelia says, “I don’t think I’ve ever worn a dress before, those are the ones with all that fabric hanging from the waist and no real pants right? Can they be made out of bulletproof weave? I can’t imagine trying to jump in something like that.” ”Although that color is pretty” she points to something hanging in the shop that’s a fiery orange color, it might be a dress or it might not be. Realizing what she was doing, Estelia stopped herself and waited for the Father to answer the questions directed at him.

    ((I r rally can’t remember if there was anything else I was thinking about the shopkeeper to write )) Moving away from the disturbingly heavy saleswoman, the Novice puts the additional ammunition her new weapon had come with in a pouch with her las charge packs. She would not be able to hide the autopistol while wearing her armor, but if she removed it she’d be able to keep the weapon beneath her clothes more or less, she figured. Estelia rejoins the others and moves into the shop. After some consideration, she removed her weapon belt and adds the autopistol behind her right laspistol, shifting the largest weapon forward. As she puts the belt back on, she notices several people from the street glancing her way. The Novice supposed she was a bit of a sight now. She sees Ariel is looking at the clothes in the store they had entered. They seemed entirely impractical, but if they needed disguises to go to the upper hive . . .

    ((Requisition rolls: compact autopistol Inf 30 Roll: 20 for 2 DoS (the Emperor has seen fit to grant Estelia’s (paranoid) request for a fourth pistol. There are heretics and shifty sanctioned psykers around every corner, you know ) concealed holster Inf 30 Roll: 87 for 5 DoF)) Estelia wanders through the shops, trying to keep track of the others as she does to avoid getting lost. She looks at thereligious curios for sale; the “relics” looked like so much junk to her. Most were obviously inferior or newly produced materials with faux gold or other such embellishments, when in fact most true relics were far less austentatious. Those that were showy were also unmistakable to anyone who knew them. The Novice stopped to page through some of the texts and leaflets available. Maybe it was her armor or her age or her lack of obvious nobility, but many of the shopkeepers seemed surprised that she could read. She could tell that some of them could not, from the wares they touted. Either that or they needed a stiff sermon from their local Clergy. Estelia was no theologian but she was pretty sure Saint Constantine of Alamar’s works contained nothing about physical wellness in one’s twilight years, and she told the man selling it as much. Eventually she found a stall filled by a corpulent woman in gaudy red attire. Her buisness seemed based around “self defense” for “women” but Estelia was mostly interested in the array of small arms the shop keeper seemed so proud of. Like much of what she saw around her, these seemed gaudy and impractical, but sitting at the side of one table was a small, plain autopistol, exactly what the Novice has wanted. Sometimes the Emperor provides when you least expect it. ((I was going to write more but I’d like to let Doc fill in the details of what the NPC says, unless he wants me to do so))

    Read Hammer and Anvil in a day and a half I’d been kinda avoiding it since I had some complaints with the (also worth reading) Faith and Fire and just wasn’t feeling like reading it. But holy crap, that is one good book. Absolutely fantastic representation of Sisters Militant, and a fun tie in to some older fluff (Sanctuary 101). And it got me to write some more so that’s always a good thing

    “Is this the place?” Estelia opens one of the carriage doors and steps out onto the street, stowing the flintlock at the back of her waist and stretching her arms. She waits for the others to disembark, mumbling a short litany she had been taught for the end of a journey. It was a somewhat strange time to invoke it, but sitting in flak armor was never very comfortable. Maybe she should have stuck with just the bodyglove like Ariel. She glanced at the other novice and her shotgun. Then again, Ariel had always been the more sturdy of the two of them ((Estelia rolled a 1 for starting wounds )). She could use the extra layer of protection if they got into a fight. Finally, she cast around at the other stores around them. It all seemed so unecessary, all one needed was a simple robe to wear, and appropriate votives to honor the Emperor. Surely, there had to be a shop offering proper devotional wares and writings. Outside of that, what else did one need but the tools of war with which to crush His enemies? Speaking of, she still felt she could use a holdout weapon, something she could hide . . . ((the only thing Estelia is really looking for is that compact autopistol and a concealed holster that she couldn’t find before, but I’m not sure that’s something you’d find here. I suppose if there is some sort of shop like she mentioned that has “useful” stuff like religious texts and so on she’d be mildly interested (as opposed to superfluous stuff like restaurants and clothing stores ) ))

    “We haven’t even finished out Novitiate and already I’m sure they’re happy to be rid of me. But as they say, the Emperor has plans for us all, and this has surely been interesting so far. To think we might actually help this entire planet . . . depending on if we find anything. I hope this thing comes in handy,” she lifts the flintlock from her lap, “though I’m not sure how it would.”
