Servant of the Dark gods
It is unknown if this Repulsive Grand Cruiser was in service for the heretical cults like its predecessors but there is a great chance that it was.
Since a lot of these were captured by the arch-enemy there is a likely possibility that Satyricon was in the service of the Dark Gods.
Spacefarers mutter that these ships are star-crossed, prone to dragging entire crews with them into the warp at a moment’s notice, there to leave them starving or bedevilled, until the ship re-emerges in the eye of terror, ready to serve the twisted lords of Chaos.
Unknown Allegiance: All crew from this ship gain a -10 to Charm and +10 to Intimidate Tests, provided their targets know which ship they come from (and are in a position to know the history of these dreaded cruisers – Eldar and Dark Eldar especially hate all the members of these crews for their explicit hatred of Chaos, which these ships are a brand for).
Cursed: The advanced experimental warp drive of the class
creates unusual harmonics which can cause the Gellar field to
flicker momentarily during warp transit, escalating navigational
difficulties. All navigation tests carried out by the ship’s Navigator
during warp travel take a –10 penalty.
Ancient Grand Cruiser: The older types of Grand Cruiser
were finely balanced. As such, this vessel may not gain any
Components that increase the ship’s armour.
Dreadnought of the Eightfold path:
When firing upon the Imperial or Chaos troops the ship gains +10 to Ballistics Tests.
