The Fall of ARC-151B "Legate Fallax"

    A transmission was received from the mining world Opus Secondus at 19:56. 1 1/3 week earlier, an unnatural and technological pattern in the ground formation was uncovered in the operation theater of the miners. Terrain auspex readings mapped this.



    The expedition called out for the assistance of the nearby Imperial worlds, requesting members of the Adeptus Mechanicus, Adeptus Ministorum, and Rogue Traders to gather and lend guidance to a possible uncovering of a vast trove of knowledge and dangers. Legate Fallax was sent as a representative of the Mechanicus to the planet, speeding to answer the call for aid.

    Before he became the Legate Fallax, Binarius Datta was a lone wolf, hiring out his technological expertise to the highest coin. starting in his adolescent years, Binarius experimented greatly with all things mechanical, fascinated with even the most modest of devices. By his 14th year of maturity he had mastered a number of rites and procedures for nearly every basic technological task. By his 22nd year of maturity he had expanded these customs towards more advanced elements, bordering on the responsibilities of a techpriest. And it was not soon after this that he submitted his application to the Adeptus Mechanicus of Umbraculo (the Mechanicus Umbraculus). It was discovered in his most early stages of education that Binarius had the capacity to connect, both with the Machine Spirits and with his fellow peers. Normally a techpriest of Umbraculo is content to spend his time in solitary and, when required to interact with others, does so in silence. Binarius was quite a contrasting individual compared to most, always willing to strike up a conversation around any topic. After his completion of the core teachings of the Mechanicus, Binarius was called upon to use his articulate disposition within the Mechanicus Umbraculus.

    The Mechanicus Umbraculus is an institution of shadows and secrets. Its fundamental principle is the assemblage of knowledge or archeotech that could benefit the Adeptus Mechanicus but would otherwise be frowned upon by the other departments of the Imperium of Man. The Mechanicus Umbraculus operates by passing along knowledge though its members, spreading the attained findings by data transfer or, in some extreme cases, by word of mouth. OF course, this wealth of intelligence has to begin somewhere. That is what a Legate does. A Legate is the retriever and courier of the Mechanicus Umbraculus, discovering and spreading the findings of the Adeptus Mechanicus. To be able to obtain such guarded information would often require a silver tongue or an unremarkable nobody. The method the Legates implemented was designated "Ally and Anlace". The "Ally" part of the method was employed by members well suited for the spotlight, winning over the people he would be stealing from by power of words alone. The second "Anlace" element was a much darker path, often littered with bodies and bloodshed. While it was not encouraged to slay those that stood between a Legate and his goal, it was often unavoidable. Binarius was adept in both aspects, well suited for most tasks that he encountered. All tasks that is, until the Opus Burglary.

    Having arrived in orbit around Opus Secondus, he was ushered onto an orbital shuttle. The others who answered the call from the Adeptus Ministorum and the local Rogue Trader dynasty were also onboard. Missionary Thadeus Hercess and Seneschal Nivlac Sansum sat across from him on the trip down, equally as reserved as he was. Their business was down on the surface, not in the shuttle. Once they arrived, Binarius and his two counterparts were allowed a short reprieve before their work. After their short interlude, the trials began. The miners relayed the knowledge they had discovered. When they began their work, they had taken soil samples to try and date how old the planet was. The planet had been around for at least 20,000 years, and it was found that the planet had suffered an absolutely crippling apocalypse. At around 12,000 years prior, the planets atmosphere was burned off as a solar flare burst from the systems sun. Having this knowledge, the trio of adventurers concluded that the newly discovered city beneath them was probably constructed in an attempt to survive the cataclysmic effects of the solar flare. But with answers come more questions: who built this subterranean suburban city? The Seneschal, with his near endless sources, asked for geographical auspex readings. After a short time, the seneschal cried out suddenly, ecstatically bounding towards back to the group. The architecture of the cityscape below them was a variation of imperial designs, which could mean that they had uncovered a lost colony of man. Unable to refuse any longer, the missionary finally approved of an expedition into the city. The trio instructed the miners to chisel through to the upper layer, where they would descend by grapnel to the city below. Once they were safely upon solid ground again, the three adventurers shone their lights about them, drinking in the amazing scene about them.



    What was apparently once a thriving underground population was now a hollow echo. This vast metropolis, nestled within a planets crust, was as quiet as a cry in the void. As easy as it was to imagine a thriving population walking along the many innumerable walkways and paths, the atmosphere the region exuded left that to question. The missionary felt the change the most, shuddering visibly as he pulled his anointed cloak about him in an effort to shake off the feeling. Along many passages they walked, stopping now and then to investigate a promising location but always being disappointed. As they turned yet another corner, they were finally met with a welcoming sight.



    The structure bore similarities to other offices of power on modern imperial worlds, so the trio set of in the direction of the landmark, eager to finally uncover something useful in the ruins. Entering the building, their hunch was correct: they had come to the Ecclesiarchal Office of the city. Deciding to split up and focus their quest here, the three members of the expedition began to investigate the offices. What the missionary and seneschal did not occupy Binarius. He had heard it the moment they stepped foot inside. An ancient and aged machine spirit was calling, begging for rescue. Following its signal, Binarius descended a few levels, coming to an unremarkable store room. Annoyed with failing to find the lost machine spirit, Binarius began to tear about the room, tossing cabinets and book cases about as he became a maelstrom of frustration and disarray. As the papers settled and the last cabinet collapsed, his objective was finally revealed. concealed behind a bookcase had been a metal cast entrace way and door, bearing a familiar mark. Binarius, however, was not prepared for what awaited him beyond that barrier.



    Beyond the door was an unexceptional and modest area of assembly, obviously a work-space for the previous owner. Binarius knew he was close now. The cries were practically screaming within his mind. Frantically throwing his gaze around the room, his surveying noticed a round, metallic object near unceremoniously tossed towards a corner. At the moment Binarius scooped up the sphere, the screeching subsided, becoming silent. For a moment Binarius feared he had done something to anger or harm it. And then it began to sing. The machine spirit was thanking Binarius, gracing him with a gift so few receive. He slumped into the corner clutching the sphere, tears flowing freely down his face as he was overcome with an emotion he had not indulged in: pride. He had done it. He had come down to this wreckage, heard the forlorn cries. He alone had uncovered its prison, and now he alone was receiving this machine spirits gratitude. It is unknown how long he remained in the chamber, listening to the sphere croon within his mind.

    A time later he was brought out of his stupor by approaching footsteps. Almost immediately the sphere began to panic, throbbing within his mind. Looking up, Binarius met the gaze of the offending character. It was Thadeus Hercess the missionary, peeking his head inside with a concerned look on his troubled face. He urged Binarius to stand, as they were departing. Thadeus' feeling of uncomfortable had grown to an unshakable level, and he was now labeling the expedition a failure and ordering the city be resealed. How could he do such a thing, Binarius thought. The had only just began to scratch the surface of an obviously considerable find. Again Thadeus repeated they must depart immediately. Oh how annoying his voice is, thought Binarius. Thadeus approached closer, as if to assist Binarius to his feet. When the two adventurers made conteact, the sphere exploded with pain, and Binarius reacted instinctively as if protecting his own self. He bolted to his feet with lightning agility and brought his power axe, already thrumming with its energy field, down through the skull of the missionary. For a moment Thadeus gawked up at Binarus, but as half of his head slid to the floor, he collapsed at the feet of his executioner.

    "Don't worry yourself anymore," Binarius said aloud, stepping over the crumpled carcass of his ex-companion.

    "You're in good hands now."
