Welcome to Librarium Online!
The air smelled of burned waste and smut rained through the industrial smog of Ianus III. Disturbingly loud noises inside the abandoned Manufactorum sounded like the rush of turbines the baneful winds of the wastes stayed the last remain of former Imperial productivity. It had been nearly a millennium since Imperial officers had wandered this city for the last time. And already long ago, scum, mutants and other creatures had seized power over the planet. Although this had definitely not been the most charming aspect of Hive Primus, Cahal felt connected to this seeming effigy of his home world Necromunda. He walked through fallen hangars and crossed huge seas of polluted water in search of the weapon he had been told to find down here. A relic of Imperial glory crafted in the times of the Emperor’s glorious crusade.
Initiative Cahal vs. Samantha (1d20=13)
Samantha Valerio tread lightly over the wreckage of the abandoned Factorum. By the looks of the damage, it seemed that a large amount of Necrontyr Gauss technology was used. As such, Valerio suspected that the Factorum housed a Pariah or Untouchable. She'd find out before the day was done.
A sudden noise prompted her to draw her pistols.
Initiative Roll (1d20=11)
Having realised that he was not alone in this forsaken building Cahal climbed up a frame of rusty metal in order to observe the intruder and obtain a possible tactical advantage. Reaching an elevated platform he turned to look at the gadfly and shuddered as he saw the three times crossed =I= of the Inquisition on a female human walking through the dome as if she was in search of something. In fear Cahal became unwary and touched a stone that fell down and hit the ground cracking.
"Damn, now she knows that she's not alone! Her or me..."
He grabbed his pistol, aimed, and fired. Suddenly he realised that after this panic reaction she would not only know where he is, but try to defend herself...
He scurried behind the pillar his platform was attached to.
Cahal vs. Samantha turn 1 (1d20=2, 1d20=15)
What the hell was that? Valerio thought frantically. It had many human qualities, but also was animal like in nature.
Obviously you are a mutant, so it is my solemn duty to give you the Emperor's Grace and remove you from his domain.
She loosed two psychic fireballs at the last position of the man-creature.
Attack Turn 1 vs. Cahal (1d20=15, 1d20=5)
Hearing the sound of a fireball hitting the pillar he had covered behind, Cahal realised that his location was not as well chosen as he had thought it to be, since the Inquisitor could sense his mind on this platform in the middle of her field of fire.
As he crouched out of his shelter suddenly a second fireball pierced the platform and exploded causing shrapnel of metal to cut through Cahal's skin like razorblades.
Feeling the burning pain Cahal became even more sure that he would have to leave this place. Next to him he realised a group of lower platforms and decided that this was the right way to get into the shadows closer to the ground. He jumped out of his cover and unleashed a volley of rounds out of his pistol in order to distract his enemy at least a bit from firing at him.
Cahal vs. Samantha turn 2 (1d20=18, 1d20=6)
Sorry, that I did not answer for so long... When you posted last time I have not been at home for some days and then I just forgot to check whether there is an answer... E-Mail notification failed...
But let's not try to explain or justify anything, Inquisitors are not the people to be merciful to renegade Psykers, right? So die!!!
The pistol shot hit Valerio's leg with a searing pain. She tried her best to shake off the pain, and to maintain her patience.
She mentally searched again for the mutant...he was hiding himself well, and was clever enough to distract her from her quarry!
YOU CANNOT HIDE FOREVER!!! she shouted.
Holstering her pistols, Valerio clasped her hands together, and began swirling them. Her hands picked up speed, and soon a searing fireball formed in her hands. It grew and grew until it was the size of a large wheel.
Thrusting her hands forward, the flames gouted forward and engulfed the room before her.
Attack turn 2 vs. Cahal (1d20=2, 1d20=17)
(Heh, I thought this thread had died.)

"But long enough for you to get bored enough to leave again" Cahal whimpered to himself as the psychic flames leaked across him and through the whole gap he was hiding in.
Cahal vs. Samantha turn 3 (1d20=9, 1d20=
(When I returned to FBC today I feared it might have died completely... )
CURSE YOU!!! WILL YOU NOT COME OUT AND FIGHT?!? Valerio raged. She was largely used to her enemies fighting face to face, and this one was hiding like a coward.
Fear not then, morbid creature, chided Valerio, rage rising agressively, demanding expression. I shall flush you out.
The quiet anger began physically manifesting. A bright orange aura surrounded Valerio, blinding Cahal. The temperature was rising quickly, to an unbearable level. Cahal would have to get to fresh air, lest he choke to death.
You shall know what true fear is... uttered Valerio.
KABOOM! The room exploded with Psychic heat. Flames issued forth from every window of the manufactorum. The extreme fire melted the plasteel and cracked the mortar. But still the power issued forth, ending with a catastrophic explosion. The supports gave way and the structure fell to the ground. Valerio still stood, protected by the sheer pressure of her mental prowess, but fell to one knee from the exhaustion.
Yet her eyes still glowed with the hot intensity of a star.
Attack vs Cahal Turn 3 (1d20=1, 1d20=15)

As temperature inside Cahal's cave rose to a point where it became insufferable, he ran out burning his forearms at the hot edges of his fervent cage.
Since all his efforts to escape the woman had caused him to get even deeper into trouble he slowly started to accept his destiny of either lying to her feet at the end of the day or leave her behind being one step closer to his doom...
Cahal vs. Samantha turn 4 (1d20=2, 1d20=9)
(You only have 13 HP left I think...already the turn before last turn... just realised...
Sorry, I have to leave again, but I will definitely return this evening!)
Cahal had yet to emerge from the rubble of the destroyed manufactorum.
Had I killed him that easily? thought Valerio. Or is this another attempt to hide from me?
Valerio didn't dare move from her spot, lest the beast try to make a surprise attack. She took two fragmentation grenades from her belt and threw them in the direction that she last saw Cahal.
Attack turn 4 vs. Cahal (1d20=9, 1d20=19)
