what do you think of this scenario background?

In a dusty old bar on the backwater planet of Kiron 4, a rogue trader by the name of Cassius Mardon met with the radical Inquisitor Simon Tiberius of the Ordo Malleus. Cassius told the Inquisitor of a map he had obtained from the body of a Dark Eldar pirate that was foolish enough to board his ship. He explained that the map led to the location of a deadly chaos artifact: the eye of Slaanesh, which had the power to bend entire worlds to the userís will (ďor the emperorís will, in your case Inquisitor.Ē) Tiberius was intrigued. He asked Cassius to name his price and they shook on the deal then and there. Little did the Inquisitor know, however, that his radical reputation earned him some unwelcome followers, who happened to be listening to every last word of their conversation. The eavesdroppers then reported their findings to their respective employers, the Inquisitors Charles Fallon of the Ordo Hereticus and Melanie Jade of the Ordo Xenos. Inquisitor Fallon was outraged and decided to put a stop to Tiberiusí heresy one and for all. Meanwhile, Lady Inquisitor Jade thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to prove herself to the Imperium by being the one to scare the entire Eldar race into submission.

1) The basic premise for the campaign is good.

2) The motivations of your principle PCs are dubious. Inquisitors are intelligent and complex characters who need a bit more depth. Why not play out a few "prelude" scenarios, pitting the various protagonists against one another (or reluctantly alongside one another) to establish their characters.

You could have them seeking out similar rumours or competing to preserve/destroy some arcane collector's item or other. It just helps with the tension if characters can already carry some "history" about with them.

inquisitors aren't the bargaining type. i think he'd more likely arrest the trader for heresy + whaver, and focibly take the map without telling the other authorites.

So you'll be ignoring the bit in the LRB where an Inquisitor is haggling with an alien?

Inquisitors can be whatever "type" they choose. That's why we love 'em.
