    I doubt we'll get to go kay-oss. that would be a pretty drastic tonal shift.
    If you really want kay-oss IF, you could always start a Black Crusade parallel LP ;)

    We can always Blam the member of Holy =I= using our fate point.... Which can save the ship from alleged corruption.... OR Not as there is Prometheus and infected Holt on the loose. :troll:

    Tribute to Ridley Scott continues :) I'd say 2) just to see what horrible consequences will it have... Should be fun.

    But then we'd have no fate points to survive the blamming for blamming an =I=.

    You didn't make very clear in your update what the rest of the remaining squad are doing right now, in response to what the =I= has just done.


    If he is BLAMMED what are they going to do? Blam us? Are their guns trained on him? Are they in mortal fear of him? So far all we know is that our character and the =I= are in a stand off, not the actual scene of the standoff as it is unfolding.

    This. Really need more information. My first instinct is that someone - even an inquisitor - who voulentarily risks infecting himself with xenomatter is a dangerous radical at best, and most likely a HERETIC. Standard procedure is definately *BLAM!*. But I need more of an indication as to whether our squad is likely to BLAM us immediately afterwards to make an informed decision. It'd also be nice to know if we have a pict recording of the inquisitors recent HERESY to show to our COs to prevent subsequent *BLAM!* when we return.

    In fact, I'm leaning heavily towards shooting the inquisitor and to hell with the consequences after this exchange root made a few updates ago:

    A radical, possibly heretic Inquisitor, what a twist! Well, not really, they are all corrupted bastards more or less. Gazing into the abyss and all that.

    2

    Flippity flop to 1. We will not tolerate heretics, even if they bear the Rosette.

    Back to 2. I have no honor.

    Isn't he reading our mind right now, though? Doesn't he know what we're about to do? How much effort is it for a psyker to paralyze our fingers?

    edit:
    Yeah. Beyond it being in our guardsman's character to shoot the obviously tainted, the inquisitor took us with him, even knowing our responses. He wouldn't have done that if he'd been planning to expose himself to the goo. Contrapositively, he wasn't planning to expose himself to the goo. Something changed his mind, and while I suppose it's possible that it wasn't mind-control, I can't imagine why else he'd willingly mainline ooze.

    Corrupting your own flesh with xeno/warp tainted patogen is HERESY againts the GOD EMPRAH... Only thing we can do now is give =I= HIS benediction.... and/or die Trying... BLAM!

    Changing my vote to 1...
    It's better to die in His service than to live as coward heretic.

    Voting 2.

    That exchange with the Inqusitor earlier might indicate he took us with him because we would blam him if it became necessary. Like, if he would fail whatever he was trying to do right now. He planed this from the start. And given that he seems to have made it, blaming him now is the wrong choice. Not to mention we would have a very hard time avoiding gating blamed ourselves afterwards.

    I bet this will turn out at least as well as the last time we decided to kill an inquisitor in a Root IF!

    Hmm, you know what? Shoot the bastard. I plan to get my Inquisitor killed in our current Dark Heresy campagin, might as well get some practice.

    Flip flopped not cause I'm sure choice one is Right and Wise thing to do... ( I'm not an =I= expert Maybe Root should telll us how exactly much being Radical is sanctioned for an Inquisitor) but cause he warned us about RP against our background and previous choices... Medicus 1 class Shepard is always ready to purge and scurge any taint and Heresy from flesh of his patients.

    I say 3: We say something stupid/unexpected to check if he's still human. For example: "Greetings, are you seeking the light?". If his reply is anything else than "WHAT???", or he takes more than 1 second to respond, then he obviously is a replicant has been indoctrinated possessed and needs to be shot.

    Failing that, just shoot him, as long as we have a Fate Point, we can cheat death (once).
