We got started a little later, so the overall story of the campaign didn't progress but a few pages of descriptions. The ceremony is still looming, Inquisitor Graves is still sorely missed, and we're doing our best to represent authority on a planet full of feuding royals.
There was an effort to locate a guest list. Also our group psyker tried to do a little reconnaissance and was promptly found and thrown in the brig. Well, he was hovering in shadows on the vaulted ceiling.
The bottom line is that very little discovery happened. We clarified the power of the position about to be bestowed. We also determined that the person selected is an outsider. We haven't decided what to do, though I did switch out of my ornamental dress suit in favor of my carapace armor regardless of how many dirty looks I get. I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to get those no matter what I wear.
Aside from some other housekeeping and a half-hearted attempt to send our Vindikar Assasin out on a little open-ended info hunt, very little was accomplished. This brings me to a point about our particular gaming group. Each group develops its own dynamic and this one is firmly set in discussion mode. Very little actually happens in the story. It's gotten to the point where our GM starts using a timer to get us moving. The discussion is usually on-topic, but far ranging. I have come to enjoy the setting despite my first reservations, but I find myself longing for a little sword swinging action and reading great blogs such as Grognardia only intensify this.
Having moved to Northern Ohio recently, I find myself five hours away from my old gaming groups. As much as I'd love to run a Labyrinth Lord game or two, I don't see it happening. At least, not until my daughter gets a little older.
Note: Over time I'm sure there will be many typos and innacuracies regarding the world of Dark Heresy in this series of posts. I take some notes during our sessions, but don't do much fact-finding research or spell-checking. Nor am I familiar with the world in general.
