Rogue Trading for Fun and Profit, Episode 5: Ashfall, Part 2

Rogue Trader: A quest for profit in the grim darkness of the 41st millenium. But dying in mediocrity and misery is for poor people and losers, and a Rogue Trader's retinue is anything but.

Rogue Trading for Fun and Profit is bought to you by:

Lord-Captain van Hohenheim - Rogue Trader. Hero. The last of his line. That's like a unicorn!
Magos Abigail von Thannhausen - A magos who possibly takes too much pleasure in the craft of Servitors. Accompanied by her servo-skull.
Archaius Wash - A gunnery sergeant with an irritatingly low-quality accent and a poor-grade artificial voicebox.
Sebastian LaMarck - A seneschal with a silver tongue.
Winter York - Astropath Transcendant. Monstrous willpower. Your glorious narrator and remembrancer.

If you're wondering what happened to Episode 4, I was Space-sick and not present for that session.

Sebastian tried and failed to acquire a better attack craft.
We departed Footfall, and went straight to the objective planet, Magaros Major.
We find a forested moon.
The Captain gracefully guided our landing craft onto the main planet, but treacherous rocks that were probably worshippers of chaos laid an ambush for us.
Abigail decided to spend half a day attuning herself to the plane. I disagree with her singing.
We finally departed to seek our fortune, and found a maze instead.
We missed the traps, found the wonder, and also Orks.
We wasted the Orks. There were also humans there.
The Captain Allegedly seduced a so-called human woman.
Afterwards, we found a map room, and suddenly discussed Warp Powers that we shouldn't have.
Some of us got uncomfortable, and others got insane.
The map confirms that the Righteous Path is in the Asteroid Belt.
Unfortunately, Fel also knows.
We decide to go after the Path. The captain spends most of his trip holed up in the medical bay. 
We approach what amounts to a ship graveyard.
Ratings are sent to go loot the other ships while we loot the Path.
We bring two landers; Wash flies one, the Lord-Captain flies the other
the lord-captain's landing is a b it rough, but Wash's landing is far worse.

We had 3 armsmen, and 3 servitors. We have less after the landing.
We begin our raid.
the Captain spots an ambush up ahead. A trap, Curse them!

We find the command deck.
the command throne his the body of One Lord Kharnus Ryn; and his signet ring.
The lord captain turns around in his new command throne to see Lady Ash enter.
She rebuffs his advances, and declares her loyalty to Fel.
The Fell Hand emerges to attack the Ambition.
Sebastian tries to jump on the round table. He fails miserably and falls flat.
I activate my psychic powers.
A Psychic event happens, and it starts raining blood.
Any one using powers will trigger Perils instantly.
Lady Ash terrifies us. She succeeds in terrifying Abigail, but not me.
The power of the Emperor is behind me, and she terrifies herself.
The Lord Captain dumps atmos.
I shoot Lady Ash in the face, but she's still standing.
The Magos pulls herself together and cuts down Ash with a spray of bolter fire. She's alive, but barely.
We get out of the ship and return to the Ambition to fend off Fel.
