Under prosecution (as of 817.M41)
Oath of Knowledge (studied enemy: Tyranids)
Sword-class frigate Valiant (CO: Haltreme, Capt. Galrite)
Planet Avalos, Avalos System, Jericho Reach (Agri-world located near Iron Collar)
Governance: Imperiel fief (assigned Lord-Governor: Thorsholt, Perian)
Lordsholm, Planetary Capital City of Avalos
Eastern coast of primary continent
Astropathic communique received from Inquisitor Kalistradi via Astropath Elsharna, assignment Jericho Reach/Avalos/Lordsholm/House of Echoes. Kalistradi reports results of investigation into rumours of Genestealer infestation on planet Avalos. Investigation has confirmed Genestealer presence on-planet; threat evaluation Gravis. Kalistradi requests dispatch of Kill-team to eliminate threat.
UPDATE: Kill-team insertion to Lordsholm successful; frigate Valiant destroyed in orbit by Tyranid bio-ships. Armed rebellion in progress, likely driven by Genestealers. Adjusted threat evaluation Extremis (extensive rebel infiltration of Planetary Defence Force; loyalist resistance scattered; Tyranid invasion impending). Mission objectives provided by Throne Agent Syndalla (Retinue Kalistradi).
- Kill the Broodlord: The Kill-team must find and destroy the Genestealer Broodlord, ending his control over his nest and disrupting the efforts of the uprising.
- Send an Astropathic Message for Help: The Kill-team must locate and enter the House of Echoes and find Astropath Ascendant Elsharna. They must then keep her alive long enough to send a message to nearby Imperial forces for reinforcement.
- Rescue the Lord-Governor: The Kill-team can find Lord-Governor Perian Thorsholt and ensure his survival until reinforcements can arrive. This ensures continued Imperial control within Lordsholm.
- Help the PDF Recapture the City: The Kill-team can aid the PDF in key battles throughout the city, using their presence, tactical skill, and firepower to turn the tide of battle.
- Targets of Opportunity
- Kill the Roaming Genestealers: For every Roaming Genestealer the Kill-team find and exterminate, they lessen the Broodlord’s hold on the city and reduce the final size of his nest when they track it down.
- Kill the Rebel Leaders: There are a number of key rebel leaders leading and directing the uprising. Finding and killing them weakens the rebels’ efforts.
- Gather PDF Support: Throughout the city there are a number of PDF regiments and companies holding out waiting for orders. If the Kill-team breaks through to them and give them orders they can offer support.
