Rogue Trader: Into the Void

Battle Report: Battle of the Throne

27th Decem M40.841

You’ve been led astray by false prophets, and a diluted faith. Cowering in the dark on the edge of the galaxy, tending to the meagre flame of your heretical religion. Your Doom was inevitable.
Chief Confessor Iairus Tetalos of The Void Tearer
You are Blind, Deaf, and open to the void. You will communicate your total surrender or be destroyed. If your commanders are too proud or foolish to make the right descision to save your sorry souls, I suggest you take matters into your own hands


You have one Solar hour to comply. Our Guns Never Tire.
Lord Captain Abel Vross
