Warhammer 40,000: The Sisk Incident IC Link --- "Okay everyone, listen up; we have a new assignment! The Boss just called us in to some feudal world, said he'd meet us there. In his typical fashion, he didn't say why, but he did say that we'd meet him there for the brief. That's right, he's there in person, which means we're onto something big. Good news is I already have 'booked' us a flight there: the Kestrel of Luggnum, currently taking on Guardsmen to reinforce the place after our Ordo Xenos counterparts seriously dropped the scrumball with Avitohol. Bad news is the ship's leaving as soon as all the Militarum types are off the ground, which should be in about three hours. In other words, pack up your crap and lets get a move on." --- Your character is someone onboard the Kestrel of Luggnum, a cargo ship heading towards Sisk, a feudal world with a technology level barely beyond gunpowder, either as a member of the Inquisitorial Warparty of Interrogator Skalter of the Ordo Hereticus, or as a soldier in the Imperial Guard regiment of your own choice or making, or as a member of any other Imperial faction that might be headed for Sisk. Information on the Periphery/Spinward Front (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Information on the Periphery/Spinward Front (open) Information on the Periphery/Spinward Front (close) The Periphery is a sub-sector of the Calixis Sector in Segmentum Obscurus that has largely been consumed in warfare between the Secessionist forces of Duke Severus XIII, WAAAGH! Grimtoof and the Imperium. Dark Eldar of the Children of Thorns Kabal raid all sides and chaos cults rising from the madness fight for themselves, but are secondary threats to the three primary combatants. Duke Severus XIII fights to establish his own personal empire: the Severan Dominate, having falsely convinced his people that he can bring forth utopia. Warboss Ghenghiz Grimtoof Git-slava has set his eyes upon the bounteous loot and slaves the subsector holds, in addition to the fight it provides. The Imperium fights to retain and retake what it once rightfully held. Would you like to know more? Information on Planet Sisk (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Information on Planet Sisk (open) Information on Planet Sisk (close) Sisk is a feudal world ruled by a land-owning noble caste with a technology level barely beyond gunpowder. With the fall of nearby Avitohol to the Orks and the subsequent failure to retake the system, the Imperium is reinforcing planets bordering Avitohol in preparation for a potential attack. The Imperial presence in the system is largely centered in several orbital void docks, including the Governor Gavvit's Oribital Palace. The planet's surface is hospitable, but unpleasant. Moors, swamps and forests dominate the landscape. Sisk is also known for an uncharacteristically high mutant population. The human population live in walled cities and fortified towns to protect themselves from roving bands of mutant cannibals. Sisk mutants are identifiable by the extra joints they possess in their arms and legs, giving them a distinct and disturbing gait. Would you like to know more?
