Event Name:
The Kynazar Invasion

Location:
Segmentum Pacificus

Date: 898 M30 - 912 M30.

A brief overlook:
The exact date that the Kynazar fleets poured out of a sector of the Halos Zone into Segmentum Pacificus is unknown, but their scourge came at an inopportune time for the Imperium. With an upsurge in the Rangdan xenocides and a dozen smaller, historically overshadowed campaigns across the Imperium, there weren't any major Legion presences in the relatively peaceful and stable Segmentum Pacificus at the time. While the Segmentum was fully staffed by Imperial Army forces (both military and naval) the scale, brutal tactics and the wide range of abilities of the Kynazar was well beyond what they were expected to be able to deal with. Imperium tacticians for the opening years of this campaign were inclined to divert resources and Legion forces that could be freed up towards the western boarder of Segmentum Solar, deeming Pacificus to be a lost cause and that the counter attack would start in Solar.

The discovery that this xenos race were the source of the 'Brood Cults' that the Imperium had been encountering for years, alongside their genestealer masters, served to answer some questions that had been held for some time... alas, those 'Brood Cults' in the Pacificus region only made the situation worse as they fully committed to the cause of the Kynazar to unleash as much havoc as possible and betray defensive efforts.

While many Imperial Army Expedition forces met the Kynazar in battle in both space and on ground and were overwhelmed, four Imperial Army Expeditions independently met prongs of the advancing Kynazar forces and emerged victorious. While these individual victories of Lord Commander Sun-Sin, Lord Commander Horatio, Master of the Fleet Isoroku and Captain Varkarian did little to stop the Kynazar invasion, this would be simply be the start of the legendary careers of each of these men; The presence of not just one military genius, but four of them raising to the occasion during what could have been one of the darkest hours of the Imperium would would become a symbol of the Imperium's destiny to rule the universe.

Working with each other and rallying all elements of the Imperial Army forces in the Pacificus to their banners as they could, the four guardians of the Pacificus (as they would be known for propaganda reasons) turned what would have been an utter disaster for the Imperium into a workable (though dire) situation. While they were unable to stop the advance of the Kynazar completely, their efforts to hinder their movements, supply resistance on occupied worlds where the population were still alive and inflict damages to their fleets and ground forces reduced what had been a blitzkrieg of an invasion that threatened to shallow the whole western Segmentum of the Imperium within less then a handful of years to a slow, planet by planet crawl.

The countless imperial lives lost during this brutal defense would not be in vain. With the time bought, Legion and Imperial Army elements from other segmentums were able to be rallied in numbers to repel the invaders. While it would take another decade before the Imperium to reclaim all the ground that had been lost and the last known Kynazar fleet destroyed, the first four years of the invasion would be considered a major, through bittersweet victory for the Imperial Army. The death toll of Imperial Army elements was high, with all planets the Kynazar had touched suffering from massive depopulation, if not the outright destruction of all life, both human and xenos alike. Many worlds were last barren husks as the Kynazar consumed all biomass from them.

While the invasion could have proven far worse to the Imperium at large if it wasn't for the heroic efforts of the Imperial Army, optimistic estimates suggest that it will be several centuries (with more pessimistic estimates suggesting over a millennium) before the population of Segmentum Pacificus starts to reach the levels that it had been prior to the Kynazar invasion.
Event Name:
The Expansion of House Vakarian.

Location:
Kirk's Vigilance. The Kirk System. Segmentum Pacificus.

Date:
6 / 549 / 876 / M30

Parties Involved:
Primarch Micholi
The servants of House Vakarian
Popivia Vakarian

Summery:
During a lull in the Rangdan Xenocides and having suffered heavy losses, Primarch Micholi and his legion largely withdrew from the front to return to their territory in order to rebuild their legion while continuing to meet their obligations.

During this stay in the Kirk System, Micholi publically adopted six orphaned children into House Vakarian (3 human, 3 Tur), partly as a political stunt to further unite the Imperium and the Tur Hierarchy together, partly so that there would still be Varkarian leadership once the now elderly Popivia had passed away and finally out of a desire to let his adoptive mothers family name carry on while also giving her some grandchildren to spoil a little.


Event Name:
The discovery of Taetrus.

Location:
Taetrus, Trus System, Tur Hierarchy Space, Segmentum Pacificus.

Date:
7/ 171/ 770/ M30

Parties Involved:
Tur Scientific Expedition: Gonk
Pav 2nd Space Borne Regiment 'The Stalking Raptors'
Surviving forces of the Necron Tomb Complex of Taetrus
The Silverpine Regency: Turn 1


While the pangs of hunger... at least for food was long a thing of the past for him, Jasper still remembered the sensation of emptiness well. The pains that came when there was nothing to eat had long burned itself into his memory, even after his ascension. While it could be a powerful motivator in its own right, letting his followers starve was simply not an option for long term stability. So while his people were digging foundations, some of them were shifted towards the task of capturing some of the local animals so that they could be domesticated, thus ensuring long term food production. The fact that the practice also involved gathering furs was just a wonderful bonus.

However, this day to day affair was quickly shoved to the background as he focused on the teal crystal in his palm. Between it and the pull from further down south, this new land had already reveled mysteries that needed to be solved. Exploring the presence of undeath down south was going to have to wait until he had secured his base of operations however. The presence of other undead in this land might have been an opportunity, but it also opened up the possibilities of rivals to contend with his right to rule.

Running his thumb along the crystal, Lord Silverpine's gaze never left it as he reached out to pull the magical energy within it into himself in order to experiment with it. Curiosity demanded that this discovery be properly studied after all... and if it could enhance his powers further.












The screaming finally ceased.

Breathing a hollow sigh of relief as he casually flicked his wrist to spray a line of red across his cabin floor, Lord Silverpine's unnaturally glowing blue gaze watched the broken bundle of meat and blood squelch on the wooden floorboards. With the red mist fading from his mind, the warlord tilted his head to the side as the bloodthirsty thrill faded into a neutral expression as he inspected the fruit of his labor. The corpse had, before undergoing Lord Silverpine's administrations, been one of the humans that they had picked up during the raid on the West Port Docks.

While abducting people had not been originally part of the plan to steal some ships to take to the seas, a quick review during the trek to West Port of his followers had reveled a truth that needed to be addressed: None of his followers had ever sailed on the open sea before. Since the entire point of taking to the seas was to land on a far distant shore, securing some experienced seamen proved to be rather vital to their future efforts... so when they were raiding the port, securing some experience crewmen was added to the list of things that needed to be taken intact during the battle.

Of course, as was generally the case when it came to raiding parties, more was taken then was strictly needed. A number of people had been 'conscripted' that had no prior experience with the arts of sailing. Some of them had skills that would be useful for their new home and thus the fact that they could contribute nothing to the trip was excusable, but there were a handful that had no skills useful to the Regency at all... well, not many.

Ever since he had transcended mortality to become a knight of death, death and bloodshed were apart of Lord Siverpine's very being. While the living needed things like food and water in order to survive, Jasper hungered for the destruction of others like a man would desire a well cooked leg of lamb. In this regard, men like the former mayor of West Port proved their worth by stating his hunger without him having to start hacking into either a loyal follower or one of the pressed ganged crew members required for the functioning of the ship. Plus, the occasional torturous murder served as a wonderful motivational tool for those members of his crews who hadn't originally come onto the ships willingly.

That said, useless sacks of meat were starting to be in short supply. As Jasper finally reached for a cloth to wipe down his blade to clean it of blood, his head perked up as he heard a cry from up in the raven's nest.

"LAND HO!"

Woo!
