The Nature of Fate

Off to Warhammer World again today. Playing a 2v2 game (as is how this campaign is going) and my partner is using an armoured column. Naturally I am going to bring an Eldar armoured column to compliment it. Flood the table with armour!

I do not have the exact list of what my ally is taking, but I know he has an armoured fist squad that I can put my Inquisitor in (to absorb bullets). Speaking of which, I am taking an Inquisitor who is bringing some fun toys to the battlefield, namely a void shield generator and some servo skulls. Shenanigans will happen!

Farseer Lireia was lost in her thoughts. She sat at the edge of the Eldar encampment, gazing off into the distance. There was still the sound of battle echoing across the planet’s surface, lives ending like candle flames in the wind. She doubted her mission. She doubted her visions.

She doubted herself.

“Farseer,” came a voice from behind her, yanking her out of the ocean of uncertainty in which her thoughts floated like a primitive Mon-keigh raft as it threatened to sink beneath the waves. She did not need to turn around to know who it was, it was Exarch Andarion, of the Striking Scorpion shrine.

“Yes, Exarch?” she replied, looking over her shoulder, sweeping loose hairs from her face with a single movement of her hand.

“The Mon-keigh, the Inquisitor wishes to speak to you.” The words left a sour taste. She could hear the Exarch’s frustration at allowing a human to know where there camp was settled, but the need had arisen, and Farseer Lireia knew of radical Inquisitors and the secrecy they pursued.

“Lead me to her,” Lireia responded as she stood up, seemingly effortlessly. The Exarch merely turned and walked. Lireia followed. Her thoughts still wandered as she walked through the camp. A lot of their forces had pulled back from the planet’s surface, along with her older sister, Autarch Thalinia, who needed medical attention after the last battle. Lireia did not seem to notice as the two of them reached their destination.

“Eldar.” The Inquisitor’s voice again rescued Lireia from her thoughts. She turned to face the woman. She wore tightly fitting mesh armour, not Imperial by design, underneath a long coat which was most definitely of Imperial origin.

“Inquisitor, you desired an audience, now I am giving it to you. Speak,” Lireia answered, resting her spear against the ground.

“Our paths must cross. You have seen it too, haven’t you?” the Inquisitor replied. A bold statement. Lireia could feel Andarion’s contempt for this human rising.

She was right, however.

“I do not expect your primitive attempts at seeing to hold much truth,” Lireia started, catching the Inquisitor off guard. Lireia could sense the discomfort in her, but she kept a stalwart expression. She was a new Inquisitor, only recently promoted up. Lireia grinned for a moment.

“But-,” the Inquisitor started, but Farseer Lireia held a hand up, interrupting her speech.

“I am not finished, human.” She paused, taking a deep breath. “I have seen what you see, however. It seems that fate has decreed that we cooperate on this planet. However much we try, however much we may want to, we cannot escape it.”

“Then you know where and when?”

“We shall be there, Inquisitor. We will supplement your brutish armoured column with our own.” She paused, smiling once again. “Consider it a lesson.”

With that, she turned and walked in the other direction, gesturing subtly at Andarion to follow.

The Inquisitor walked away as well, back to the Imperial garrison with which she stayed. But first, she had to meet with her superior. Inquisitor Lord Tyzell Chaylen was meeting with a small force of Grey Knights, the secretive chapter of Space Marines. The daemon hunters of the Imperium.

Inquisitor Alyssa Robertson always felt uneasy around them. She did not relish having to report to her superior in most scenarios, let alone if he’s surrounded by some of the most intimidating warriors that the Imperium has to offer.

She had to clear her mind for the coming battle, however. She wanted to be able to follow the Eldar movements, despite knowing that her powers of seeing were vastly inferior to that of the Eldar Farseer. She had to be focussed. Her mind had to be clear.
