Hail to the unbound.

Hail to the Emperors will for it is the Unbound who ride the wave of his expanding consciousness..

I feel the thrill of exhilaration as we step together in to the new expanse. I feel a sense of purpose and the guiding hand of the Emperor at all times, but i have already felt the cold hand of treachery upon my shoulder.

Even tough we are strong and have the glorious crusade fleet guarding our backs, our greatest weakness comes from those we know best.

Already one of our number has seen fit to embark on acts of petty treachery, though it caused no great harm, the simple fact remains; the action was taken within our ranks with the aim of spreading dissent among us.

We, the unbound ride the wave of the Emperors will, and here in the expanse it may seem to some that they are not riding that wave but racing ahead of it. We are the Unbound free to charter new paths of trade were no man has visited for thousands of years, yet we are just as free to fall, far from the Emperors light, in to the blind depths of ignorance.

The Emperors light may be ignored but let me assure you friends that it is ever present, it penetrates the darkness of time and space and it penetrates this expanse, and wherever it touches it brings to bear the Emperors judgment, and the Emperors wrath.

May the will of the Emperor guide you to glory but if you oppose his will may he guide the faithful to seal your doom.

Manchurian Prime

Manchurian Prime,

The Most Divine Omnissiah, whom you call Emperor, knows all and comprehends all. The Most Divine Omnissiah's consciousness is no longer capable of expanding as all is heretofore and evermore encompassed by it. Instead, it is the consciousness of Mankind that expands toward the Most Divine Omnissiah, safeguarded by those who preserve and execute the most sacred laws gifted unto Mankind by the Most Divine Omnissiah upon Olympus Mons.

The Most Ancient and Revered Aurora Glorificus too has felt the prick of small-minded and petty treachery as a manling, whose lifetime is but the briefest flicker against the inexorable tide of forgotten deeds and events of great moment to the ever-turning cogitator banks of the Most Revered Aurora Glorificus, showed the effrontery to attempt to harm that great vessel by smuggling explosives aboard her with an intent to detonate them.

The explosives were poorly made, following correctly all of the principles of the sacred design, but assembled in a slipshod manner. I would caution all making port in Ramillies class Star Fort designation Scorn to be vigilant and attentive of any technomat of mediocre skill and impudent bearing.

Might I enquire of you the nature of the treachery perpetrated against yourself?

Hail Lord Captain Manchurian Prime,

We too have been targeted by such foolish treachery as an attempted smuggling of spies and mercenaries upon our ship, even now their greed shall be expunged as their minds are purified of sin through the act of servitor creation. All further attempts at incursions upon our ship by these lacklustre scum shall be met with direct and aggressive retaliation against those responsible as is our right and duty.

Lord Captain Manchurian Prime I hope that you are able to share what transpired so that we can work at tracking down those responsible and bringing them to justice and be able to keep an eye out upon our own ships for similar issues, lest their foolish lack of foresight cause more damage to our endeavours and the crusade as a whole.

All glory to the Emperor and may his light guide and protect all who carry his name in their hearts and his prayers upon their lips.

Lord Captain Cyrus Vendigroth-Malakai Astantine XXVII
Captain of the Alabaster Hammer, Guardian of Morose

Cyrus Vendigroth-Malakai Astantine XXVII,

It is my recommendation that the protocols that allowed you to detect the smuggling of spies and mercenaries aboard the Venerated Alabaster Hammer be maintained extant. At a point in his interrogation that numerological cogitations indicate his capacity to contrive falsehood as being extremely low, the effluent imbibing sump feeder that dared to encroach upon so exalted a manifestation of the Machine God's Absolute and Boundless Divine Power as the Most Ancient and Revered Aurora Glorificus claimed that he had been hired to do so by someone representing the Venerated Alabaster Hammer. It does not require initiation into the mysteries of the Divisio Logis to plot the determinism that would indicate that there may yet remain spies or traitors aboard that Venerated vessel upon which you may practice your direct and aggressive retaliation.

I shall lead my congregation in a Hymn of Consecration for the Animus Mechanici of the Alabaster Hammer to aid in the uprooting of these interlopers.

My esteemed Lords and Ladies of the Rogue Trader fleets – I am Magister Marshall Praetus Callidon, of the Adeptus Arbites. In light of these recent events, the Lord Solar has petitioned the High Lords to expedite the establishment of an Arbites Precinct House on Port Scorn, and it shall be my honour and duty to lead these fine men and women.

It saddens me to see these accusations of sabotage and conspiracy in only the first few months of your great undertaking. I pray that these incidents are in fact simply misunderstandings, but in case they are not, my Order acts under a Holy mandate to punish those that flaunt the Lex Imperialis – Imperial Law.

To all loyal and just servants of the God-Emperor, I promise you vigilance and a swift hand should I or my subordinates detect any plot or action which may undermine this Crusade. As Rogue Traders you enjoy an honoured place above that of most Imperial servants, but you are still subject to laws, and judgement. To stand upon the bedrock of law is our great duty; to presume to stand above it is the greatest heresy.

I must ask that if you have proof of any action taken against yourselves or your holdings by another member of this Crusade fleet, that you bring it to my attention immediately so that the guilty may be judged. Your ilk has a sacred duty – to explore the stars and bring the light of the Emperor to the forgotten regions of space. My order also has a sacred duty – we determine the guilty, we decide the punishment.

The Emperor protects.

Magister Marshall Praetus Callidon

Thought for the day - "To be just, our law my be cruel."

is this on? ... yes? ...

To the crews of the Busillis, Aurora Glorificus and Alabaster Hammer, as well as any other servants of the radiant Emperor who peruse this message.

Your messages have reached me here at the mission on Mort, and your plight saddens me deeply. Beset on all sides by the xenos as I currently am, I at least have the comfort of the full and enthusiastic adherence to the Imperial creed of the throng of humanity that I now shepherd. To find traitors in one's midst speaks not to the strength of the leadership, which I know is as solid as the rock of the Astartes against which the Chos batters in vain, instead it speaks of the weakness of the flock, which is a failing all too human.

I must concurr with the wisdom of Congregator Septimus that a close watch on the crews would be indicated - we instituted such a policy previously, and have not been plagued with such traitors and decievers. Indeed, if you wish assistance with this or related activities, I offer whatever assistance and expertise I can provide to your endeavours to purify the faith of your congregation. My distance and duties obviously limit the expediency and extent of such support, particularly with a half-million faithfull demanding my time. However what I have remaining is at your disposal to root out the traitor.

I recall with fondness the word of Cardinal Khrysdam, written in the Instructum Absolutio; "A Traitor can never be forgiven. A Traitor will never find peace in this world or the next. There is nothing as wretched or as hated in all the world as a Traitor." Let those words comfort you as they do me.

Contacting Gravitas Digamma Septimus Omnissianic Congregator of the Aurora Glorificus,

First allow me to clear your 'concern' over our well-being, the fact that our protocols are maintained to the highest levels is why we were able to not only stop but also capture and serve justice upon all who tried to board our ship under false pretense, so while I welcome another Techpriest chanting to aid our most revered Alabaster Hammer it is not necessary.

I do however see flaws in your logic and upon discussion with my own council of Priests they have confirmed my fears, you state that the subject of your interrogation accused us under torture, therefore it was us. Now I don't claim to be as skilled in the finer points of logic as a Priest of the exalted Adeptus Mechanicus and despite my lack of induction or teaching in the skills of the most esteemed Divisio Logis I, as a simple layman, do understand that a single point no matter how precise does not create a line.

You state that you used interrogation yourself rather than the far more effective method of telepathic intrusion, have your telepaths backed up his words? No pure physical interrogation is ever exactly 100% effective, as you yourself stated, his ability to lie was extremely low, not impossible. After discussion with my most learned member of the Adeptus Telepathica they have pointed out if Mind wiping or cranial implants have been used the need for telepathic scanning is indeed needed to show the effects which are invisible in standard Interrogation, lips may lie but before the Telepaths Throne granted ability to see into their minds there can be no lies, have him bare his soul before the Adeptus Telepathica and may his sin give you a finer point of origin.

Next I must ask have you interviewed the individual who this filth claimed to have hired him? Or should I understand that you will simply believe on face value the words that this person used to hire the saboteur as fact? You fail to mention this interrogation so i have to wonder. Personally find it even more suspicious that the person who did the hiring told the saboteur the name of his own ship, so much for covert action! Hopefully this makes the target that much easier for you to locate. I would suggest that have you not already done so that you find this person and gain your second point of reference further up the line so that you may place an accusation at the feet of the correct people.

I have finished speaking with you now Omnissianic Congregator Septimus and now i wish to address your Captain.

Lord Captain Jonus Vulgrim, i am saddened that it is such matters that force us to communicate at this time and I sincerely hope that your mission goes smoothly, I suggest in future that should you have concerns to bring to my attention that you do so directly in a manner befitting those of Honoured ancestry and birthright not through a vox message from a Technomat underling.

I urge you present your evidence and I shall locate any elements upon my ship who performed such actions should they exist and deal with them to the harshest level of the law, however i feel more than confident that once fully investigated we shall be shown to be completely and utterly without blame.

If you have this treacherous dog who attempted the attack still alive we would welcome the chance to interrogate him to clear our name and prove our intentions in locating the knaves who launched this cowardly and unprovoked attack, or should you fail to trust us as I would certainly understand considering his strong words, hand him over to the Adeptus Arbites who have announched their arrival, and hence the arrival of true Imperial Justice, and let them weed out his secrets, investigate the matter and deal with those that the facts implicate with the full force of the most holy Lex Imperialis.

I know full well that our lack of entering into alliances with people we have met but once - and briefly at that - has made us a target of those who have entered into such agreements; either seeing us as a threat, an uncontrolled element or even a simple target to blame for their own misdeeds. Perhaps you should consider the motives of those who would do such a thing, look to those who actually have something to gain from this attack and your ships destruction or damage.

May the Emperors Light always gide you and your ship.

Cyrus Vendigroth-Malakai Astantine XXVII,

You appear to have misconstrued my previous communication. I am unsure how this happened, but as Magister Marshall Praetus Callidon seems to have leapt upon the same or at least a similar false conclusion as yourself I must assume that the fault is mine and the onus of trying to express myself in a lower form of Gothic is on me. I hope you will forgive any unintended lack of clarity; Low Gothic is not my favourite language and I oft find its vagaries somewhat infuriating. Surely, even as a native speaker, you too must find that the billions upon billions of differing dialects spoken in different systems of the galaxy are oft-times senseless and self-contradictory.

I must immediately dispute your claims regarding the greater efficiency of telepathic intrusion as an interrogatory technique. The exact effects upon the mind and body at varying stages of physical interrogation are well described by scribes of the Collegiate Extremis, and I would expect in similar transcripts referenced by other Imperial institutions; and while individuals do exist that defy these otherwise perfectly predictable behaviours, such individuals require a level of specialised training and hypno-indoctrination that I judged unlikely enough in the individual in question that I had no compunction in disregarding the possibility. In the case that it does so turn out that this individual, who was easily apprehended by the most menial crew aboard the Ancient and Revered Aurora Glorificus, was actually a covert operative of the Officio Assassinorum, I am prepared to appear foolish for having done so.

I am quite confident of the sincerity of the confession extracted. For example, earlier during the questioning, the contumelious defiler insisted he had been hired by a representative of the August Busillus, but the timing and manner of his change of story was exactly consistent with the documented behaviour of someone who has been repeating a well-practised lie beyond the point where it is believable until, as you so romantically described in your endorsement of telepathic intrusion, his soul is laid bare.

Now as to the point seemingly missed by yourself and by Magister Marshall Praetus Callidon, sincerity of confession does not guarantee accuracy. While the irreverent filth genuinely believed the apostate that hired him to have represented the Venerated Alabaster Hammer, this does not imply authentic representation; after all, traitors lie (I believe this truth to be widely enough acknowledged that quoting my sources in this case is unnecessary). The fact that the pustule upon the face of Mankind was unable to describe the one who hired him in any greater detail than the sacred vessel he represented, even after his soul was laid bare, creates a numerological likelihood that the employer in this case was concealing his appearance, which in turn creates a likelihood that he was misrepresenting himself in the one recognisable defining feature he displayed. Most likely probabilities are a stolen uniform or whatever other insignia you use to identify the crew of the Venerated Alabaster Hammer. While this uniform may have been stolen prior to your detection of the miscreants previously expelled from the Venerated Alabaster Hammer, the end result is still an individual or group with intent to cause harm who have access to a means by which they may masquerade as representatives of the crew of one of the Machine God's cherished vessels.

Despite Magister Marshall Praetus Callidon's speak of sabotage and conspiracy within the Crusade Fleet, my cogitations reveal the likelihood of crusade fleet involvement as being fairly low. Certainly the limited knowledge I have accessed regarding members of the Crusade Fleet and in particular those operating as Rogue Traders suggests that, simply put, we have better things to do with our time. In any case, any further pursuit of understanding in this matter short of waiting for the next act of treachery to occur will, I suspect, require the mass-questioning of the residents of the Slum-habs of Ramillies class Star Fort Scorn to document any received or observed offers of employment regarding intended-to-be-covert treachery; a task that I understand to be both beyond our means and beyond our jurisdictions. Perhaps once the Arbites Precinct House is established, you might petition the Magister Marshal to assign some Chasteners to investigate this very matter.

Finally, as a matter of form, you will find that throughout the galaxy, wherever the light of the Astronomicon shines upon the Imperium of Man, it is considered both uncivil, and a display of vulgar ignorance and flawed character, to tell a Priest of Mars that their logic is flawed.
