One of our players (Bob) is in turmoil over what should be done with the dead Deathguard with intact Gene-seed we found. The options we see are to
- Pawn the corpse, sell it, throw it in a dumpster. Just get it off this damn ship. Trouble is, whoever comes across it next, might be willing to trade it in, and dob us in, ending in Exterminatus. (The majority veto this plan)
- Give the corpse back ourselves. Many kudos fall upon us... Maybe even earn a favour from the Inquisition. However, in finding out where it came from, could possibly end in Exterminatus. (Bob resents this idea)
Normally I would just say "ok, we're making this decision without you", but unfortunately Bob's character is the Ship's Captain, and our Rogue Trader, so it's more his-decision-is-our-decision rather than the other way around. Bob is convinced that we're going to end up dead either way and he, and by extension his character, is refusing to decide. So without his input, the game has come to a grinding halt.
How can we get the game moving again? I would prefer to get Bob's cooperation first, rather than finding a way around his decision.
