The next day, Buzz had the crew look up some information on some names that got dropped at the party as max kept himself entertained elsewhere. The crew Dug up some information on three rogue traders, or two Rogue traders and a Dynasty agent as the case may be, he also found out information about the big boss of the Black brotherhood, a band of nasty killers who will work for anyone with enough thrones.
Seeing as how Rogue traders would not likely meet them without max, they in steed arranged a meeting for that evening with Abel Gerrit Representative of the Arcadius dynasty. Having time they also made arrangements to meet Calcus Calinnicus. So as Stubbs and Lilith waited for the first report from the Necro gangs Buzz and 11 set out to meet Calcus Calinnicus.
Meeting Calcus Calinnicus at a over crowded den of crime near the lieges court Buzz and 11 proceeded to talk shop, agree to pay Calcus Calinnicus to not accept jobs on them. while this was going on Lilith and stubbes received information that Ward had paid to bump off four RT’s Max, Gerrit, Fel and Armelan.
So while Buzz and 11, unsuccessfully tried to get Calcus Calinnicus to track or attack the Eldar following them they are informed of this new development. Lilith sneaks out to go what the Chains of dusk. She finds what they are unloading thousands of cold sleep chambers, with as many as two or three thousand upon the dock and hundreds of caged slaves. she Vox’;s 11 who sends his servo skull to record. she also tries to get a closer look, keeping the skull away and recording.
Meanwhile Buzz and 11 hammer out a deal to have the Black brother hood kill ward and his retainers, if they can come up with a very large payment. In closing the deal Calcus Calinnicus lets sleep that he knows of this auction.So in exchange for 11 upgrading his weapons he tells them all he knows. That the next evening an auction will be held, a grand auction with only the top eight bids being excepted. those that win will be allowed to watch the foretelling of the seven witches. None know what they will say but vast fortunes can be won or lost upon the words the witches spin.
elsewhere Lilith in an attempt to infiltrate the slave ship is captured and knocked out, soon to be added to the ships collections, but Stubbes, who after being shot in the face was enjoying the ships fine alcohol stores and took a little flight in the Lord captains lander. Feeling no pain, he was unable to raise Lilith upon the vox, but did get a comment from her captures that he could buy their slave back..when they got done. Thundering over head with guns hot and the fury of the God_Emperor or booze fueling his rage Mr. Stubbs demanded they give her back or the whole dock would be ventilated by the God- Emperor wrath and autocannon shells.
Seeing things his way, they returned Lilith by dragging her to an airlock, Stubbs then reclaimed her and just for good measure, unleashed half his stores of Autocannon shell into the dock, venting most of it into space and killing a hundred or more of the Chains of duck’s crew and an unknown number of slaves. This action was later called ’Rigorous scouting"
Buzz and 11 returned to the ship to find the defense on high and an uneasy feeling across the docks. Buzz also decided Stubbs had earned an orky medal.
