The Book Of The Stigmartus

The Rain Of Iron
The Fall of Tabius Rasa

“And the Chosen set foot on the World of Dragons, and discord and war came with them. The sky fell as burning iron and the great warship of the corpse-god taken as a prize. But this was as nothing to the seizure of one who stood at his left hand.”

First Intercession: Tabius Rasa

  • Wiping out an Imperial Patrol and substituting Stigmartus troops, Garrus, Severus and Ephialtes led a brutal assault on the native villagers, starting a major uprising.
  • Using a daemonic ritual whose secrets had been bought at great expense, and sacrificing several hundred slaves to ensure success, Anok Sabe silenced all astropathic and vox transmissions in the system.
  • Following a plan formulated by Alpharius, the Chosen destroyed the cargo station with the Tabius Rasa base’s own surface-to-orbit missiles, before siezing a dropship to escape in.
  • Ephialtes successfully piloted the dropship through the falling hailstorm of metal, including dodging an inert, falling transport ship which had been docked at the station, before the ship carried out a barely controlled crash aboard the carrier controlling the system garrison fleet, which the Chosen siezed.
  • Facing an attempt to recapture the ship, the Chosen faced down an enemy assault force and succeeded in killing the naval armsmen, and succeeded in capturing Inquisitor Kharak, before escaping into the warp.

    First Intercession: Tabius Rasa

    “…On the World of Dragons were the Chosen first blooded in the name of the Stigmartus. By diverse means did they seek to overwhelm the followers of the Corpse-God and rob them of the Bridge Between The Wars.

    As the Dragons rose and the fire fell, did the Chosen earn much glory.

    And far off, by the light of the Unblinking Eye, a black sword was drawn."

    The Book of the Stigmartus

    • On the frontier world of Tabius Rasa, the Imperium has established a staging post, trans-shipping troops from the stalemated conflict with the Tau to the already overwhelming forces fighting in the Celebos stars.
    • Unless this flow of troops can be interrupted, the Stigmartus will not have the time to marshal their forces.
    • The outpost consists of a regimental-scale Imperial Guard garrison around a Downport, whilst a small navy contingent protects the highport.
    • Scarifer has charged you to eliminate the outpost, promising the favour of Cult-General Sarda.

    The Chosen
    Of The Champions Who Were Called

    “And Elak Sarda cried out into the Warp, and those who remained faithful to the True Gods heard his call. Countless champions answered him, and walked their own Paths to Glory…”

    “…And on the Broken World of the Ragged Helix, in the name of Elak Sarda and the True Gods, were summoned forth five who would stand high amongst the Stigmartus.

    First was sent forth Him Who Is Called Scarred, one of his servants.
    Second was summoned Him Who Is Called Vengeance, who sought those who were his Brethren no longer.
    Third was summoned Him Who Is Called Legion, of whose purposes none may speak.
    Fourth was summoned Him Who Is Called Wise, who sought the secret ways and places forgotten to Mankind.
    Last of the Five to be brought unto the Stigmartus was Him Who Is Called Darkness, who was not summoned but had been bound in their service at the cost of many lives."
