"Into the Fires of Battle, Unto the Anvil of War!"
The Setting is the Planet Morfang, a Death World in the Ultima Segmentum, a planet that used to belong to the Astartes Chapter known as the Void Reavers. The Void Reavers were loyal to the Imperium until the Olympious Crusade, when their Chapter Master Rovannor, turned his back on the Emperor and pledged his alliance to the Ruinous Powers. He was not alone in that betrayal, for four whole battle companies of the Void Reavers followed their master. Those who resisted were cut down and slaughtered.
So the Void Reavers set about a decade of slaughter, sacrificing the populace of Morfang to the Chaos Gods. In this decade, the Imperium ignored the pleas for help.
For their borders were beset on all sides. Abbaddon had recently launched his thirteenth Black Crusade, forcing the Imperials to send aid to Cadia. And such were the ferocity of recent Tyranid attacks, that the fleet sent to rescue the Imperial Citizens of Morfang was grounded into dust by Hive Fleet Leviathan.
It was then that the Salamanders stepped in. The Salamanders Fourth Company, with elements from the Fifth reserve Company, and the First and Tenth, were sent to liberate Morfang and save the loyalists on the planet from destruction. Overall Commander was to be the Fourth Captain Xavi'san, The Master of the Fleet...
Extract from the Chronichles of Fourth Captain Xavi'san
After entering the Morfang system, there was a suprise ambush from the Void Reavers, hopefully delaying the Salamanders before they got to Morfang. However, before the renegade marines could pull off their ship, it was badly wounded by a shot from the Fourth Company's Strike Cruiser, Vulkan.
Xavi'San curses, blood spitting from his lips, making his way back to his compartments. How had the Void Reavers known we were were coming?, Xavi'San ponders. They couldn't have found out unless... unless they had warning.
Xavi'San brushed the thought out of his mind. He was being too Paranoid. Several Marines under his control bustled past him, and he saw Apothecary Ve'lecto kneeling over a Brother Marine, and was extracting his geneseed.
"How many did we loose?" asks The Fourth Captain, fearing the worst.
"Five, Including Brother I'lvanius here," Ve'lecto replies grimly. "If these traitors send another dammed attack."
"Then we will grind them into oblivion," responds Xavi'San, as the white-helmeted Space Marine climbed up. "Continue your duties, Brother. May the Emperor's Light shine upon us all."
"You too, brother," was the Apothercary's response. Then, The Fourth Captain continued on his duties. He had work to do.
Brother Vil'turn: You are currently injured and unable to take part in any conquest, having been injured saving your captain's life after a suprise Boarding Action by the Void Reavers. [[[OOC: Warsmith 7752 Is too busy to take part in the roleplay as of now, please lemme know when you're ready]]]
Sa'orn: You are in the combat arena of Vulkan, dueling against a fellow Veteran of a Sternguard element in the first Company. Describe the fight, how do you defeat him? Do you use a low blow to the stomach? Do you go for the head? You don't intend to kill him, just beat him in a freindly duel.
Tsar'gan: You are currently walking through the spaceship, passed by a Salamanders Scout. The young recruit stops and engages you with a conversation. What does he say? What do you you respond?
Sar'zhulgiin: You are in a part of the ship damaged by the Void Reavers attack, and Servitors scurry around. Describe your surroundings. How do you feel about the aftermath of the attack? Do you wonder if the Void Reavers know that the Salamanders are coming, will they send more attacks? Also, what do you think of your captain? Do you respect Xavi'san.
Shri'kia: You are recovering from a blow taken from a Void Reavers renegade Chaos Sorcerer, the leader of the attack, and have just recovered and in the medical part of the ship. You see the Company's Champion, Vil'turn, lying on the sick-bed, greviously wounded, but recovering. Do you think he will be able to recover, or will the Company need a new Champion? Do you mourn the lives lost by the attack?
Sorry for the shite update.
