After “successfully” navigating The Maw, the narrow passage between two turbulent warp storms that acts as the safest entrance to the Koronus Expanse, our “heroes” dock at Footfall, a more wretched hive of scum and villainy you’ll not find. They attempted and failed at acquiring a crew, as they left dry dock in a hurry and didn’t have time to gather the regular crew, but did find a man who said he had loyalties to the Rogue Trader who used to hold our “heroes’” Warrant of Trade. He was killed in a firefight over the small rock he held, but said rock is now securely in the hands of our Rogue Trader and her crew. Now, what is the significance of this rock? And why was the old man assaulted for it?
