About The Adamant Will

Hull Fluff:

Avenger-class Grand Cruiser
Dimensions: 7.5 km long, 1.8 km abeam at fins approx.
Mass: 40 megatonnes approx.
Crew: 141,000 crew, approx.
Accel: 2.2 gravities max sustainable acceleration.

In many ways the archetypal grand cruiser, the Avenger class is a massively potent and brutally simple ship that mounts colossal close ranged macrobatteries in broadsides that run for kilometres along its flanks. While regarded as unusually reliable and faithful for grand cruisers, the Avengers are now amongst the rarest of their class. The Avenger dates from an earlier period of fleet tactics, when, squadrons of grand cruisers were employed as “line-breakers.”

Traditionally, they were thrown into the midst of massive fleet engagements, soaking up enemy fire while racing into the middle of enemy formations, then crushing their opponents at short range with tetrajoules of energy from their oversized broadsides. These unforgiving tactics have taken their toll upon the few surviving Avengers, and they all bear the scars of grim, forgotten battles fought when the Imperium was young.

Complication & Machine Spirit Oddity:

Wrested from a Space Hulk: The ship has been recovered from a space hulk, a mass of wrecked ships that drifts intermittently through the warp and realspace. The ship is very old (and thus of high quality), but those who know of its origins whisper that it is cursed. The ship gains +1 Armour, +1 Speed and +3 Maneuvrability. However, every time the crew suffers a misfortune, the GM rolls twice and picks the worse of the two.

Adventurous: The vessel is eager to seek new horizons, to turn its bow from civilisation and delve into the darkness of the unknown. When participating in an endeavour, the ship gains +10 detection, when not participating in an endeavour it suffers -10 detection instead.
