Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 4

You try making something even approaching tasty with this Emperor-forsaken mold. I don’t care that there’s a planet full of it – nothing kills morale quite like a bowl full of green, flavorless paste at the end of the day. There’s got to be a better way…
-“Chef” Aldo Gaston, Dominate Ration Distribution Adept, Camp Kleins.

A much-needed night’s rest finally comes for the Aetherian Rex Auxilliary Corps. Or at least as close to one as they’re likely to find in the war-torn village-turned-depot of Kleins. After an early rising, the squad needs to resupply, tinker with their gear, and try to trade away the rest of their ill-gotten “weaponry.”

United in purpose under the Dominate – as they surely are – one would expect cordial relations with the local chapter of the Priesthood of Mars. But offended machine spirits – and more importantly, offended tech-priests – are fickle creatures.

Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 3

Encounters with other cultures under the Dominate’s protection is inevitable. While your own commanders, in concert with the Legate Corps, will do their best to integrate you, it is your own duty to seek to understand those who will fight alongside you. Depend upon each other, no matter your differences – the Dogs of Terra will exploit any weakness they can.

The empty manufactorium seems like a good place to recover. But distrust within the squad, the ever-belligerent orks, and the fallout of the drop-ship crash all threaten the Aetherian Rex‘s ability to rest, even for a moment. When a sudden evacuation becomes necessary, the scramble to get the VIPs and the rest of the soldiers out in one piece begins. . .

Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 2

The Dogs of Terra may seem to have an unlikely ally in the brutal Orks. Beset as our worlds were by the xenos’ attacks when the Great Secession occured, your likelihood of being engaged in a three-way fight on any battlefield you’re deployed too is high. But fear not – orks are war-hungry creatures, and they care not from where their fights come. High Command will ensure that wherever possible, your efforts will drive the two forces against one another. Trust in the Dominate – our Interdependence gives us strength.

After a relatively safe drop, things quickly became complicated for the Aetherian Rex 1st Auxilliary Corps and their first mission. The section of mazelike honeycombed mining tunnels that they were assigned to examine have become home to strange orkish slave camps, a kilometer-long crashed imperial dropship, and Emperor knows what else. Initial reports from the newly-freed Excavatory Warriors have been… of mixed value.

Still, they push onwards towards the Corbin-Danziger line, ready to administer their deadly payload to whatever lies on the other side. All they have to do is make it there.

Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 1

In the far future of the forty-first millenium, there is only war. But the Imperium of Man is not united. In a prosperous but isolated sub-sector, sector governor Duke Severus XIII secedes, claiming that the High Lords of Terra have bled the sector dry, only to leave its citizens to the tender mercies of an approaching Waaaagh!.

And there are men and women willing to kill and die for the newly minted Severan Dominate and its principles of Interdependence, Justice, and Honesty. The -Aetherian Rex- 1st Auxilliary Corps approaches the mineral-rich battlefield of Hervara, a planet that – if lost – could spell the end of the Dominate’s dreams.

They have the length of a single warp voyage to familiarize themselves with their new equipment, and for the Voidborn that form the core of the squad to meet their support specialists and allies from far-flung Severan worlds. Grav-chutes and repurposed mining lasers will take some getting used to, of course. But is it even possible to accustom oneself to the mysteries of the witch, or the strange ways of the abhuman Ogryn?
