Fracture
A 28mm scale Inquisitor Narrative Open event at Dark Sphere Megastore
27th April

~~~~~

"Do not make the mistake of understanding the warp. Time and distance flow like water there. Seconds turn into years, years turn into hours, hours turn into centimetres, and centimetres turn into dust. It's a realm of no fixed rules, and as many or as few dimensions as it likes."
- Inquisitor Lord Davian Finach

It is not particularly unusual for an occasional astropathic message to come through dated slightly ahead. Even without the vagaries of the warp, the Imperium's million worlds seldom agree on a precise date, with delays in communication and the conversions to and from local date formats constantly introducing errors. Most of the time, these anomalies are of little concern to anyone other than a few adepts who shuffle around muttering under their breath about how to fit it into their filing system.

It is a more serious matter when messages begin appearing weeks, months or even years ahead.

The approach of the warp storm "Lord Hallen's Grave" has lead to such messages arriving with disturbing frequency within the Abraxis Sector. Many of them are minor messages of little import - dull tithe reports of average harvests or nobles frivolously exchanging love poems of questionable literary value; Others speak of far more serious matters.

Amongst the fragmented futures placed before the Inquisition is that of the world of Rarlen, an ostensibly civilised world that has for a century and a half been governed by Lord Mathys DeMontane.

To some within the upper ranks of the Imperium, DeMontane is a wily politician who has crafted a network of power that has weathered any adversity, and enforced his ruler-ship however necessary; To others, he is an incompetent, paranoid and oversensitive fop holding on to power by hiding behind his connections and the brutal overuse of force.

The Inquisition is no less split. Some would claim that a rulership of a hundred and fifty-two years represents vital stability in a sector otherwise imperilled by the tumults of the Imperium Nihilus.
Others would believe that his selfish manner is a cancerous tumour poisoning the Imperium, and that his replacement would be the first step in the sector's recovery.

This deadlock has for decades been decided by the threat of his powerful allies. Any attempt to move against him is too risky even for the Inquisition - were proof to get out that the Holy Ordos were involved, then it could threaten ties with several powerful merchant fleets, numerous powerful noble families, an Arbites Lord Marshal, Naval Admirals, and even rumours of an Astartes Chapter Master.

However, the winds of the warp carry word of a coming revolution upon Rarlen - with the benefit of foresight and carefully manipulated, these future events could be turned to the advantage of the bold...

Fracture focuses on temporal disruptions in the Abraxis sector - a situation largely caused by the Inquisition's failure to deflect a warp storm in the earlier "Guardian" event. (Attendance of previous events not required!)

Players will be taking advantage of these cryptic insights in order to try to weave their way through the political mess that is the world of Rarlen, choosing between factions in a coming revolution, at each stage becoming aware of not just what has happened, but what will happen.

Event pack (slightly) updated, and tickets now available!

Also, if it's easier for you to keep track of there, we also have a Facebook event page to follow (although that's been around a little longer).

I don't know how many people are following this thread, but for those who are, if you scroll down through the very belated update on my forgotten P&M thread, you can see the start of the civilians I'm working on to provide the backdrop in many of the scenarios for "Fracture".

As a reminder if you want to join us, this event will be in just over two weeks, but tickets will only be available until 23:59 on Sunday 21st April (to give me a few days for final planning).

So far, half the tickets are gone, which is definitely enough to make things pretty interesting on the day, but it'd be great to have a few more.

As a near-final reminder, if you want to join us in London next weekend and thus play your part in deciding the fate of the revolution on Rarlen, the cut off for tickets is the end of this Sunday! (In order that I have the week to complete any printing and finalise the story tree for the right number of players).

The revolution on Rarlen shall fail. So say the Fragments, scraps of future astropathic messages shredded across time by the tumult of the Warp Storm "Lord Hallen's Grave".

The unprepared revolutionaries are crushed beneath Lord DeMontane's power and connections, and the wrath of the incumbent governor is harsh. Thousands will die as guards fire upon crowds. The aftermath sees any with even the slightest hint of a link to the ringleaders publicly executed.

With the revolutionaries never seeing any early success, his political rivals in the Fforbes-Ingall dynasty never commit their power to the coup, preferring to remain on the side-lines rather than risk their reputation.

However, not every Fragment agrees. A rare few speak of other outcomes. Knowledge of these alternative paths is to be deemed proscribed at the highest levels, for these messages hide clues that lead to partial and impossible futures...
