Faith and Betrayal
Dume's Deslation of the Dead- A Trip to the Gallows
The investigation on the hive world of Solomon takes the group deep into the processing plants that produce corpse rations for the imperiums endless legions.
While the group wades through a waist deep pool of body fluids, guided by a factory worker, with conveyors on either side with bodies being punctured and drained by various machines of varying levels of dis-repair and catwalks with workers bustling back and forth above. Out of nowhere a group of workers and odd looking cultists with heavily punctured and mutilated skin draw weapons and begin firing on the group. Dume immediately drops into a crouch and braces himself before snappin heads back with precision shots with his hunting rifle. The cultists return fire, forcing Dume to jink and dodge to avoid the spray of bullets that spatter the goo around him. Dume perforates a few more cultists/factory workers while the group also does their part in cutting down a few cultists during the same time frame. Some of the ambushers break and run from the combat into the next room.
After the room was cleared of hostiles, Dume calmly reloads his rifle and heads toward the next room. Rather then the climbing the ladder up to the catwalk, Dume decides to make haste by running down the body conveyor, deftly and narrowly dodging the piercing fluid draining needles, to move into the next room. Too late after entering the second room Dume realizes that the conveyor dumps onto a death slide of flesh rending blades, the initial shock and suprise causes Dume to slip and slide into the first row serrated edges, shredding some of his skin with shallow lacerations. Dume manages to get back to his feet and leap up and over the first row of spinning blades and nimbly scampers up the slick ramp, narrowly avoiding the limbs and bodies tumbling past. As soon as he reaches the relative safety of the platform above hes pinned down by heavy fire from above, he quickly jumps back onto the conveyor and ran back into the first room with his comrades….
