It’s been a while but hopefully I will be having a bit more time to post about the stuff that I have been and will be doing in the near future. In this little battle report we are going to the rough planet of Kenwah which is the setting for the Rogue Trader scenarios we play.
The backstory for this game was as follows; in a previous battle the happy-go-lucky scoundrel Conrad Moon and his gang were taken prisoners by Izwahrians – the race of reptilians that originally were the dominant species on Kenwah. Instead of killing Moon and his bandits the Izwahrian commander Erzah had uses for his prisoners. He was in need of some sort of middleman to exchange an old izwahrian religious artifact, stolen a long time ago, for money. The stolen figurine had somehow come into the possession of the exiled Izwahrian Warzi – a sought criminal who so far had escaped the law.
It was now the job of Conrad Moon and one of his gang members to carry the money to the rendezvous with Warzi, get the figurine and stall the exchange in order for the Izwahrians to ambush Warzi and his armed escort to capture both the figurine and Warzi. However, things went wrong and unsurprisingly a fierce battle ensued. Moon grabbed the figurine and started running for his life, while the Izwahrians charged out from their hiding place and Warzi’s hired hands started to shoot at everything moving. During the game Conrad Moon and his short-lived fellow ganger Kenman High were NPC’s
Here’s how it went down.
The battle took place in the outskirts of Hunger City, the main town on Kenwah, in an abandoned industrial complex.
