Lost track of current system week. Will resume time-frame next report.
While I have found no more evidence of tech-heresy on planet, I have kept my proverbial ears open for more rumors and information. During this time, I worked with the main Mechanicus Magos on planet to help find a way to deal with pest problems on the crops. Estimate an elimination of up to 90% of pest population, increasing crop yield exponentially. Will keep updated on reports as they come in on the subject.
As to the matter on hand, I investigated a kidnapping site and found a trail through the fields, left by the kidnapper. Following it, I found an abandoned house with a ‘shrine’ in the basement. The kidnapper refused to surrender and was too evasive for the servitor I brought with me to catch. I was forced to eliminate him.
The kidnapper proved to be a psyker. From his remains I gathered a necklace. Upon looking into it, it’s based on some made from a local Saint’s armour fragments. I doubt that it is a real artefact and probably a false copy. The manufacturing of these amulets are unknown, even to the Mechanicus. This concerns me. As for the kidnapped child, I rescued her and one other and returned them to their parents. Unfortunately, some measure was taken on the kidnapper’s end. While leaving, the place had begun to burn down.
