Apocalypse game (Assault on Fenris)
The entire chamber was still, cut off from the rustle of the rest of the Fang. No sounds, no light, and if you had anything less then the senses of an astertes, you wouldn't even sense the slight presence of smoke, from a candle long burned out. Even with the powers granted to the Emperor's chosen, only a select few could handle what would come next. A figure not seen in the dark shadows stirred, and that perturbation flowed out in to the micro-particles spread out over the room. An imperceptible hum could be sensed, but not by anything you could describe. Patterns formed in the air, and the priest cast out his pile of runes and bones. The hum grew as the world spirit bent space and passed knowledge. The clatter of it all was a cacophony after the long silence. A candle was lit, and the patterns studied, but they were the same as the last several delvings. There was no mistaking the signs. The Rune Priest Tolfkier rose to his full height and with a single nod, sent a bloodclaw apprentice off to fetch the Great Wolf himself. Now was not the time to question, now was the time to fight. The greatest opponent faced by the 6th legion was returning, and he would not be defeated as easily as the last time.
Castellan Quintas, the High Marshall has asked for a progress report. "Tell him we have entered orbit around Fenris and are preparing to make landfall." If there is any Heresy to be found here Corteaz will find it. These Wulfen creatures are surely Chaos spawn by their descriptions. We have brought our own dog to turn loose if things get out of hand. Signal the Titan transport to follow the lead stormraven when entering the atmosphere.
Castellan, the astropaths have detected a warp signature opening near the planet. It appears to have originated in the warp. How could they have known we were coming? Get the Great Wolf on the vox, they didn't know we were coming. This is some other treachery. Land all available forces on Fenris and break orbit if necessary. I will lead the ground forces, Baracus you will command the ship in my absence. Remember we have been charged to purge all Heresy by the Emperor, see to it. Yes sir!
Baracus reporting: "The ships emerging from the warp bear the Thousand sons insignia.
Castellan Quintas: "No Chaos god could compel these two legions to fight side by side, we have been deceived!" "Have you contacted the Great Wolf?"
Baracus: "Yes Sir, he threatened to rip your head off and shite down your throat, I believe was the jist of the conversation."
Quintas: "Contact him, appraise him of the situation and ask him if he will fight with us?"
