Quint and Smite arrive at the eastern section to find the red-robed tech-priest they traveled with on the transport awaiting them, the air in this section of the Outer Ring is stale, most likely from ill-maintained recycling systems, this area doesn't look as though the mechanicus has sent an enginseer or even a lay-priest in some time.
A message breaks in over the comm-bead the three of you were issued upon receiving the assignment, the channel is a secure inquisitorial channel:
This is Inquisitor Korvan, I see you've arrived at Alpha-12, good. Be careful there, I've received word from Artisan Lokas down in the Refinery that the Mechanicus rarely enter Alpha- 11-13 because it's held as 'holy ground' by the Binary Collective, a fraternity of the Cult Mechanicus here on Waymeet that is taciturn to even their own kind outside their brotherhood, and outright hostile to anyone not 'sanctioned' by their fraternity to enter the area. I believe this is why no one questioned the deaths of the work crew, seems like most simply assumed they'd crossed the Collective. At any rate the Collective is apparently quite dangerous if provoked. I'm told the Mechanicus has no up-to-date maps of the 11-13 sections due to the influence of this splinter faction, you'll have to find a main hub if your going to get data any more recent than a century ago.
