High above, the Oppenheimer watches silently in geosynchronous orbit. It's guns lock on to the crash site, prepared to vaporize the whole region if the ship cannot be secured by Carnus and his personal guard. The alert to quarantine the area has already gone out, causing all assets in the sector to pull back to a safe distance. Inside the ship's hold, an extraction team prepares to engage whatever corruption has gripped the crashed vessel.

Carnus? Respond or I will start shelling that damned junker with you in it. We have no time to be chasing goblins and snarks around in the snow. I am preparing a strike force, if you want to live you will make your way outside and wait for me. If an inquisitor were to learn you have been crawling around in a xenos infested or warp corrupted wreck, we will both be executed on sight.

Where is your sense of adventure? I am handling the problems here on the ground, Zarek. You keep my ship flying and I will do the real work. I brought you on this expedition to learn, if you want to divine the truth of things or gain any kind of reputation among your peers, observe only. I will alert you when I am prepared to leave. Keep the area secure for now, I am close to uncovering the fate of this ship, there may be answers here to questions others are too ignorant to even ask. You could always bury your head in the sand with the rest of the Orthodoxy, feel free to begin the bombardment and never look back. Alternatively, have some patience and perhaps our discovery will bring even a pig-headed fool like yourself some enlightenment.

A severed head bobs as it is drawn along in the current toward the breach in the hull where the explorator team first entered the ship. Water rushes down the tunnel, tainted with the blood of the fallen electro-priest and the supernatural inhabitants of the crashed vessel. A Skitarii wades through the flooded compartment, focused on his omnispex which has detected foreign movement within just meters of his position.

Stood roughly in the center of the staircase back to the reactor core, a vanguard shoulders his carbine and produces a hook attached to a length of rope. He swings the anchor and prepares to climb to the next level of the ship. Whatever had been trying to open the locked hatch has given up, and the knocking against the door appears to have stopped momentarily.

Below, Carnus and the vanguard alpha fight off another creature. The Dominus activates his eradication ray, melting through the floor of the deck above but only grazing the top half of the leaping beast. He discharges his pistol as well, meaning to eliminate it before the mutation can skewer itself on the halberd end of his axe. The captain stands firm, ready to react but almost out of charge on his own sidearm.

The sudden high-energy onslaught invalidates any remaining structural integrity left in the ceiling and causes a section of hull to collapse just shy of the captain. The gunner above hops away from the collapse in panic and begins firing into the hole.

A loose surviving part of the captain's assaulter lands in a wet bubbling pile at Carnus' feet.

The burning sensation surrounding the captain's wounds magnify to levels that would be barely acceptable to someone less of a man than him. His rotten dying flesh twists and turns of it's own accord, and if his mind was weak or distracted, whispers of deluded nature would caress his ears.

Quiet sounds of wading water and finely-tuned servos echo out from the breach over the rushing of the leak near the inquisitive Skitarii. Three entities. Only one is living.

"УНИЧТОЖИТЕ РЕБЕНОК. КОРРУПТ ИХ ВСЕ."

The squad leader is shaken as a voice, both incomprehensible and impossible to ignore floods out his own thoughts. His mechanical limbs move with precision and grace, but inside his own organs and tissues rebel against him. The wound festers rapidly, moving and pulsating of it's own accord as it is twisted by some invisible presence. Through adrenaline alone he reacts as ballistic rounds pour out from the new opening in the level above. A hunk of the melted deck falls toward the sargeant, if it weren't for his heavy augmentation the he would likely have been too distracted by the voice to avoid being crushed by it. The last energy in his pistol's capacitor discharges, returning fire at the shooter while delivering a strike with his power sword to the adjacent mutant.

The grapple finds purchase on the balcony ledge among some tattered clothing and viscera. With the Dominus steadying the line, the Skitarii climbs to the dented blast door. The third squad member backtracks through the ship, reaching their entry point and lying in wait for whatever seems to have followed after them.

The gunner moves with unexpected swiftness, flipping upside-down through the new opening and latching onto the ceiling, thrusting it's rifle point blank into a servo skull and blasting a hole right through it. A couple shots pepper it's barely humanoid form, but fueled by rage and carried by rapid mutation it continues.

Tendrils begin to emerge from the headless body of the priest. Whatever was left of his divine nature has sourly turned against him. Inquisitive mechanical clicks and whirrs compliment a soft splash as his head lands in the steadily filling pool just outside the original breach. Below the waterline; Two rugged-looking metal legs. Above it; nothing. Behind those still, a suit. It holds up a crude-looking flamethrower towards the floating head.
"Скажи мне, что это такое, робот. Враг?"
A synthesized voice responds from seemingly a few feet in-front of him.
"Мертв. Не беспокойся."


Vile cries inexplicably exit the captain as gory appendages propel themselves from his own flesh. From his eyes poors bright white textureless fluid, and even his remaining limbs themselves begin to rebel against his mechanical augmentations. Both mind and body is ripped in half in brutal unforgiving END throes ofВСЕ ЭТО panic. И ПРИНЯТЬ судьбу народа.

There is no time for sentiment as the injured Skitarii Alpha begins to mutate. Sensing a change in the tide of this fight, Carnus withdraws up the staircase. Perhaps his first officer had been right about leaving empty handed but still unmarred by this corruption. The Skull probe which was illuminating the corridor is smashed to pieces with ease by the gun-wielding demon. Above, the vanguard hops over the balcony edge and moves toward the briefing room door.

In the engineering section, the specialist Skitarii listens in on the conversation between the severed head and the robot. Before he can make any determination about who they are, his Omnispex picks up strange readings from the decapitated priest behind him. Wheeling around, new limbs have sprouted from the heap of once dead bodies. He trains his weapon on the mass but holds fire, not wanting to alert the group of strangers in the tunnel to his location.

The last remains of conscience and reasoning are sapped from the Alpha, and fora breif moment, they are in bliss. Then, vast and violent alterations begin, and a great hulking hunched beast takes the Alpha's place. It stands, breathing heavily, as shots quite harmlessly singe it's outer shell.

The gunner steadies itself against the rock protrusion under it and begins the closest thing to suppressive fire that it could think of.

The reanimated remains of the headless priest hack a large caustic blob of blood at a Skitarii.

Meanwhile, as tendrils begin to emerge, a huge blast of flame engulfs both the priest's head and the silhouette beside it. The glow lights up both the suit with the weapon and another entity behind it.

With an inhuman acrobatic feat, the Dominus narrowly avoids a burst of machine gun fire and hoists himself to the balcony. If anyone nearby was not alerted to the ongoing battle inside the ship, the ringing of bullets against metal plated flooring has surely notified them that this derelict ship is anything but abandoned. The vanguard on the third floor puts his gauntlet into the nest of wires which had been the door control, discharging electricity from his servo-motor power supply and forcing the door to open, despite it's damaged state. Below the captain has succumbed to the influence of this haunted place, losing all semblance of his humanity and joining the hoard of bloodthirsty mutants.

Further down the hallway, a clot of putrid blood splashes over the metal plates of the Skitarii soldier's carapace armor. Built to handle radioactive and even vacuum conditions, he appears to shrug it off entirely. In response, the vanguard fires point blank into the pile of gore with his carbine. chunks of organs and bits of bone splinter away in the volley and are carried down stream to the caves below.
