Original thread: http://forum.rpg.net/archive/index.php/t-209875.html
I found these funny so I decided to put them up here in an abridged and editted form, the intro is all mine. All respect to those who made it. Feel the Heresy.
Inquisitorial report -J898998L339
Concerning: Redacted Regiment of Planet Redacted
Lord Inquisitor Redacted
I have finished the inquest of the Imperial Guardsmen that you asked me to do.
I found little evidence of true corruption and all of these examples listed below should be taken less than literally, they are just troopers letting off steam and barely any of these events actually happened, they were just spoken about.
Despite the charges that could be brought about for speaking them I ask that they be ignored, planet Redacted is a bad warzone and these troopers should be applauded for staying alive so long and denying the enemy that which is rightfully the Imperiums.
Take this list lightheartedly if possible.
P.S: In their defence, Commissar Janessa is quite Redacted. I would Redacted that.
