Tiberius Dynasty

The Coronation

Passing the title

- Echo has set up several techpriests and acolytes to provide long term palliative care to the injured warriors Kompost i Sigismund whom were the only two wounded in the battle against the Necron Lord. After a heavy employ of the Diagnostor tool, Echo has concluded that Sigismunds wounds are rather grave and that there was approximately 7% chance for Sigismund to die. Kompast fared a lot better with his wounds. His eye was severely damaged, it would need a bionic replacement, but he was steadily recovering, prognosis said that he would be fully operational in one month time. He needed rest and was in pain, but he was conscious and stable. In the meantime Aheron was nowhere to be found. Possibly went to investigate the capture of the creature that stalked the mess hall that Echo dubbed the Technovore, for its diet that he concluded consisted of electronic devices, depending on the strength of the machine spirit inside it. Nemesis of any follower of the Cult Mechanicus. It was kept and subdued in a cage that it could eat its way out of, but was constantly kept unconscious by the high powered shock batons, under the watchful eye of Quentin and Coolbreeze.
- Meanwhile Echo was contacted by Regis to ask a most perplexing question, Regis described events that unfolded within the walls of the Cargo Hold against the Necron Lord without ever witnessing them, this sparked Echo’s curiosity and with further investigation Regis gave the information that LaRoix was having visions that came to be prophetic. They described that Sigismund and Kompast were wounded and that there was a disagreement between Echo and Aheron but then he said something highly disturbing. He said that Spyiridon and Satyricon were wired with explosives and it was Aherons doing,
- Regis was on his way to the meeting with the deamonhost Ces Rass, how he came to be with that knowledge of the deamonhost amongst them was rather riveting, the words came from one of the Praetorian Guard, Davos Taal, but the wisdom was not his, for it caused him great distress.
