Petrus joins Desmond beside him. ‘Seems a little coincidental to wind up in the same area as another trader. What are we up against that requires us all to work together?’

Icarus voxes Hassarian, while also hand signalling the gunner of the tank. "Perhaps we should just smoke the bitch?" he snarls with barely contained anger. "I hate arrogant cows like her, I really do."

"Now now." Desmond say's quietly. "If the lady rogue trader is here, then she has a ship in orbit as well. I'd rather not get blasted to atoms because they didn't appreciate our welcome."

He scans the trees again for any movement. "Plus she wouldn't get rich being stupid. I bet there's more guns around us then we can see. of course I thought diplomacy with The Hand was a good idea to..."

'I must concur with my colleague, my lady,' Jace says. He raises a hand to point at the structure. 'That temple is, as you've no doubt gathered, of Xenos make. We must first ascertain that it poses no immediate threat, before we begin negotiations regarding ownership.' His words sound genuine- clearly the presence of an Eldar temple has rattled him more than the rival captain's sudden appearance. 'I sense psychic energy in the area- quite possibly emanating from that very structure.'

"Forgive me boys, for a split second I thought that we were top carnodons on this planet. I must've been mistaken. Perhaps ask the lady if she'd fancy a fucking glass of Amasec. I'm sure that our Lord Hassarian won't have any objections. After all, it is her planet now, right? We must do what she says" laughs Bane in a mocking, rasping voice. "Our rival is in the open, and we can contact our ship in orbit to intercept her vessel, while we smear her arrogant ass all across the jungle." He signals the gunners to ready their weapons. "Just send the word sir, I'll handle the rest."

@Xath:

You hear Hasarian bark in laughter

"If you want to loose your balls to that power sword of hers be my guest!"

He laughs again

"Me? I'd prefer to have children some day"



@Gankom:

Lady Sun Lee smiles in an affable manner

"Then I suppose we have very different experiences!" She says

From inside your coms you hear Hasarian's voice

"She probably out numbers us Desmond. Sun never goes anywhere without the Jade Guard. I'm sure there is a complement of them in the trees around us, I would bet a couple Leman Russ too"

A pause

"Also I think that the whole Hand thing is an outlier. Sun and her family are not blood thirsty"


@DS:

"Very well Navigator. I suppose you are right." Sun Lee says "Who would you like to send for recon?"

Petrus will volunteer to join the recon. The elder abomination may grate on the nerves of the troops and they may need some imperial faith to bolster them.

"If we are to make an alliance of convenience," Desmond calls to the lady rogue trader, "Perhaps it is best to leave the squabbling over rewards until we have properly secured the prize. I have no doubt we are the only Captains to have come this far. Our navigator suggests these ruins are elder, and we encountered a ship from the same race as we left Footfall. I expect we will see more of that kind as we travel. There is strength in numbers lady Sun."

"Of course that would require that we have some trust in each other." he stops and looks around the empty forest expanse. "That's hard to have when we don't even know how many guns are pointed our way. Perhaps a show of good faith then. You can ride on our mighty steed here, and in exchange we properly introduce our forces."

(Desmond is trying to be a bit more wordy then he needs to. A bit of blathering, a bit of diplomatic confusion. Plus he wants to see if he can give Bane a better estimate of Lady Sun's forces. in case things get... kinetic.)

"I'd love to see her puny power sword go through this tank" mumbles Bane under his breath. "Lock the weapons, boys" he says to his crew. "We're sitting this one out, it seems. For shame..." he adds, while adjusting his rebreather.

Desmond will check with the others to see if they have anything to add, but otherwise he'll volunteer himself to ride with Sun Lee's men. He'll keep an open vox connection with his party the whole time.

"No way in the Warp that we're letting any of us go with that wench!" Bane's fury is barely contained, as he voxes his companions. "Why should we even bow to her request, this is disgraceful. Desmond, get in the fething tank. We don't have time for this charade" rasps Icarus, as he, once again, signal his men to prepare their weapons.

‘Shall we proceed to the temple?’. ‘ we are ready’. Feeling a mounting tension, Petrus pushes for an action.

Jace stared at the temple, only half listening to the conversation going on around him. 'Master Bane,' he spoke quietly over the vox. 'Under normal circumstances, I would defer to your judgement in decisions regarding our safety. However, this temple... It troubles me. To me, it would seem prudent to agree upon a truce with lady Sun, however temporary, at least until we have determined the threat posed by this temple.'

He frowns, massaging his temples to assuage the psychic pressure in the area. 'The Eldar are a race of psykers, and I cannot see the presence of their craft on this Warp-wracked planet as mere coincidence. Any hostilities between us and lady Sun's forces should be considered trivial, compared to what that Xenos structure might throw at us, and as such I would advise you not to bloody our forces, nor hers, when they might be sorely needed against the Enemy Without.'

He cracks a half-smile, and after double checking that lady Sun cannot hear him, he adds 'we can always do that later, if deemed prudent.'

Desmond agrees with Jace. "Besides Bane, if the worst happens I'd bet some of the finest amsac that you'd pull me out of the fire in time." He grins at the massive man.

"Very well" says Bane, as he gives his crew an "all clear" sign. "Go with her, but be extra careful. Also one of her servants should go with us. It's only fair, I think" adds Icarus in a grim and determined voice. "Jace, can you at least speculate on what we can find inside that temple? I need to know if we should be ready for a infantry-heavy situation, or maybe an armored duel".

@AG:

"Yes you may go ahead Petrus" Hasarian says "I have sneaking suspensions that those pointy eared lunatics are around here somewhere. Beware, the Eldar out here in the tend to be of the pirate verity. They prefer the slice 'em up approach. Just fill them full of holes if they spot you
***

@Xath:
Hasarian turns in his seat to look back to you.

"Sun Lee is an honourable woman, she won't go back on the deal. I've known her since we were children. That being said keep your eyes open, her men may be another matter entirely. I don't know much about the Jade Guard's disposition so..."

He mimes the turning the safeties off motion.

"Also send a few of the lads with Desmond"

"As you say, Sir" Bane replies, as he gives four of his men signals to accompany Desmond. "Strikes me a bit odd, that such a dangerous and well known Rogue Trader would not have absolute control over her men" he adds with a doubt in his voice. "Then again, it's a hard work, earning the respect of your subordinates".

Petrus nods an affirmative. ‘Head out’ he says to the troops and draws his Vulcan and makes for the temple.
He lets the squad take standard recon position and follows their training. He is not on point.

Jace thinks on Bane's question for a moment, before giving his reply. 'I have little insight in military matters, master Bane, yet I shall endeavour to shed light on the possible paths ahead. The Eldar are few and fragile, yet each more deadly than any man when fighting one on one. They are stealthy, and they are deceitful. Do not expect to fight a fair battle against them, with clearly drawn lines. Their most dangerous aspect, however, is their psychic prowess. Indeed, they might not need to be bodily present, if they can work their foul influence through this temple.'

He shrugs before realizing Bane can't actually see the gesture. 'I would advise extreme vigilance, commander,' he concludes, 'and overwhelming force against any threat which does show up. It might be necessary to turn the tanks' guns against the temple itself and bring the structure down, should anything happen. I shall keep monitoring psychic activity in the area, and warn you when necessary.'

"Roger that Jace" barks Bane into his vox horn. "All elements, be on your guard and get those safties off" he instructs his men. "Gunners, target the temple. If worse comes to worst, I want you to saturate it with maximum fire." Icarus calls Desmond on a private channel. "Desmond, if dung hits the fan, get down, take cover and try to get back to the tank. Do you read me? No stupid heroics" he adds with a snarl.

Bane turns towards Hassarian. "My Lord, if the Xenos do attack, we could use our rivals as a distraction against them. Sacrifice Lee and her men for our tactical advantage and a potential counter attack. What say you about this plan?" he asks, watching his leader closely.

@Xath:

Hasarian sighs

"I dislike such a dishonorable plan. However, I will amend it and say that if we must take such a despicable path that it be for the sake of the crew. Our lads always come first. A tactical retreat. Then we regroup and attack from the rear, cutting off one of the Eldar's means of escape and crushing their forces on two sides. An hammer and anvil as it were"

He scratches his beard.

"I would also inform Sun of the plan should we need to use it. She'll understand... I hope. No need pissing off one of the most powerful dynasties in the Sector."

"But I doubt it will come to that" Hasarian says "Eldar avoid open conflict if they can. Likely it will be a small squad on squad skirmish, in which they will flee"
