    Nah. The bros make decent arguments, 1 is probably correct for the lieutenant. If we had men and demo charges to spare, that might be different, but as things stand, the best thing we can do is ensure that when whatever is in there erupts, it isn't handed a fortified position.

    I've always thought Codexers were learning animals. Remember Holt.

    By the way, something people may want to have clarified is --- exactly how corrupt is 7 corruptions points, like it was stated we had a few updates back.

    I'm not root, so don't take this as 100% canon. But Insanity/corruption points are handled pretty much the same way in dark heresy/rogue trader/death watch/only war. If we assume our corruption points follow these, then the Only War beta pdf lays it out like this:

    Corruption can only be gained, not lost. For every 10 points of corruption, guardsmen have to make a willpower test. Failure means their body and soul is begomming physically corrupted by the influence of the warp. This results in a random malediction being generated from a nice big table. Examples are things like:

    Show Spoiler
    34-45 Witch-mark: the character develops some minor physical deformity or easily concealable mutation. It is small, but perhaps enough to consign him to death if found out by a fanatical witch-hunter or a paticularly vigilant commissar. It's in his best interests to hide it well.
    61-63 Night terrors: The character is plagued by daemonic visions in his sleep. This functions identically to the Horrific Nightmares Disorder (see page 229)
    76-80 Malign sight: The world seems to darken, tarnish and rot if the character looks at anything too long. The characters perception is reduced by 1d10


    For every 30 corruption points players get a cumulative -10 modifier (on a d100 roll) to resist further maledictions/mutations stemming from corruptions.

    Once the guardsman hits 30, 60 and 90 corruption, there's a risk he develops funky mutations. At 100 corruption he's utterly lost and damned and ceases to be a PC.
    The same chapter also stresses that commissars are trained to spot the signs of corruption. So the higher our corruption score gets, the more aweso-- *BLAM!*



    TL;DR:
    We have 7 corruption. It's not enough to have an effect yet, but we're getting p. close to our first quirk. Assuming Corruption works like in the pen&paper rules.

    If we hadn't have gone Kitchenus Adeptus we would have likely have gotten more than the bitchslap for subverting the chain-of-command. I think our mistake was more trying to curry the favour of Holt for petty revenge. But then again, it's hard to say for sure with a root LP. Things have a way of spectacularly backfiring.

    It's a crying shame we didn't have the option to report everything Holt did to our commander but explicitly tell Holt that we were ordered to do so and we're not about to disobey a direct order. That would've been the EMPRAH-approved way to curry favour with both of them.

    I doubt he's the Jurgen, that guy's a psychic blank. He doesn't have a warp signature and his mere presence can send psykers into fits. He's practically an anti-psyker.

    He did that rather more gloriously.

    Anyway, voting 1.

    I still think he would not of been so willing if he realized we ate Amberly Vail. Hell, we practically used him as a puppet, still feel kinda guilty about it.

    Sue me but I'd like to find out what happens if we find a daemon in the hive, slaughter our own squad while engaging him and hoping he likes what he sees to grant us a chance for revenge. Maybe we are even able to summon some daemon prince together with Khaldor Draigo into the world. I'd love to kick that fucking piece of shit in the nuts. Fucking Grey Knights fluff.

    Holt doesn't strike me as a man who'd just forgive our previous failures because we shut down unmanned artillery. Guess we're gonna see whatever three-eyed monster root bestows upon us soon enough, so we might aswell try to follow the chain of command for some while - 1

    Why is this not updated yet? Clearly it needs more commissar boobiez to inspire the men!

    Yeah.... 1

    If whatever warpy thing in there is powerful enough to overload a fucking psykers implants, odds are we'll be dead/mutated/corrupted before we could even see the enemy, let alone try to shoot it. Splitting up just means less people to accomplish the objective we actually stand a chance at completing.
