-Holy Castellan Robot is important relic to machine cult and loosing it will bring infamy to Perdiolus and Gödel. Castellan robot is slowest unit of the expedition and dictates general advance speed.
-Ruins of ancient factorium complex that has been cleaned long time ago of all components and metals. Expedition is able to locate hidden resource deposit containing pieces of archaotech power armor and powercells.
Data: Exceptional stc factorium upgrade. Not belt but graplers.??
-Enter shadowing figure whose presence is not located by expedition scanners.
-Annoying metal eating tiny robotic minipedes are banished with electric charge set to protect Castellan robot that draws those ravenous tiny metal eaters.

-Expedition returns to ef118
-Enginseer Strabolus self-lubricates with holy oils in fervent curiosity for data-answers for the Quest of Knowledge gathered by the expedition. As Magos Dominus Specialist Gödel collects his share of loot in form of power-fist and Homo Legatus takes damaged archaotech power-armor. Enginseer Strabolus demands full report of achievements and opposes the expedition has faced. First report from Skitarii officer 1064 is insufficient and Strabolus strikes with his data-spike to download necessary data from cerebral cortex of the officer (Int loss 2d8?). Encouraged with actions of enginseer both Magos Dominus Gödel and Homo Legatus Perdiolus give full and detailed report that satisfies the enginseer Strabolus.
-Data gathered by the expedition is transferred to Data vault of Tech-Shrine at Sphaera Imperator via satellite network of EF-118 research station.
Engineseer Strabolus commands members of the expedition not to reveal secrets of Gravis Minor to authorities of Imperium and claims planet as future forge world of Fabricator-General Paracelsus Thule.
