Sword & Spoken Word
House Autumnhall is an anomaly. Holders of one of the old “Suicide Note” Warrants (so nicknamed for the high mortality rate among their original holders), dating from the Angevin Crusade, they have failed to ascend of the heights of fabulous wealth and power, or die out.
In fact, the actual Warrant has rested in a stasis vault for generations, invested in each generation but left unused. The family has instead diversified into trades, first mining equipment, then pharmaceuticals, then gradually more and more into less and less definitively understood “financial services”. By the end of the 41st Millenium, House Autumnhall is mostly a large bank, steadily showing a modest but undramatic profit year after year, decade after decade.
This all changed when the major branch of the family was very nearly wiped out by the Red Pilgrimmage of 997 M41. The last surviving scion, with the help of some very shadowy but powerful backers, has assembled an expedition, and resumed the mantle of a Rogue Trader.
Whether the ancient Warrant will prove a “suicide note” at all… remains to be seen.
