PostSubject: The Accursed Demesne **Mechanicus Survey 7342 Extraction**   Wed 14 Jul - 13:16

"Pride has conducted us unto death, and torment awaits all who follow in our steps."
- attributed to Faith Laithmon

In ages past, man believed that all evil and corruption in the Koronus Expanse emanated from the Accursed Demesne: ills in the warp, energies that blasted life from worlds, clusters of stars that seemingly died together in unnatural cataclysms, misfortunes, ghost-vells, and the ravening Ork. Wise Rogue Traders shun these voids even now, and little is known of the worlds deep within the Accursed Demesne. Common voidfarers live in terror of the Demesne and the ill fortune that flows from it. They whisper tales of xenos tombs upon Lathimon's Death, cursed Dolorium, and the domain of the fearsome Ork beyond.

Stars and courses Uncharted

The Accursed Demesne is a vast and uncharted region into which few have voyaged and returned. Few routes into the Demesne exist, and those which are likely to be accurate are jealously guarded by the Navigator clans who first found them. Other fragments of warp navigational information are highly inaccurate and likely to prove lethal to both Navigator and ship, should they be followed blindly. Those who decide to voyage into the Accursed Demesne do so in the knowledge that they are stepping into the true unknown where their fate is subject tot he wildest chance and where they may find ruin as easily as fortune. To a bold and ambitious soul, however, the Accursed Demesne is a lace of possibility poisoned by a dark reputation.

Places of Interest in the Accursed Demesne

Lathimon's Death

"Above the tomb were scrawled in blood, that had dried and flaked in the wind, words I will take to my own grave, and i fear even there I will find no release from their dread import."
-From the personal journals of Balastus Irem

This planet orbits one of the Cineris Malificum; a string of star embers surrounded by shells of thinned star-matter cast out from their ancient demise. Upon this world rest huge cyclopean structures, columns and avenues spread across a darkened surface, so worn by time they resemble hills and valleys. Only a few are said to have visited this dread world, their names including Balastus Irem, slain by the Inquisition, and Rafe Longinus and Eduard Majessus, who vanished without a trace.

Processional of the Damned

The processional circles a few barren worlds and a bright and turbulent star. It is a thin orbiting chain of wreckage, warp-crushed space hulks, and dead vessels of a hundred different xenos origins. The currents off the warp have cast these uncounted thousands of sorry wrecks and ship-ruins here, perhaps for longer than mankind has traveled the stars. Ghosts and other warp-echoes orbit with the Processional, bound to the wreckage and the dust of their remains.

Undred-Undred Teef


The Undred-Undred Teef is a tract of systems at the heart of the Accursed Demesne that is a nest and breeding ground for Orks. Only a few of the boldest of explorers have ventured into this place, but those who have speak of worlds held in an embrace of filth and wreckage, ringed with clouds of debris and wreckage from which Ork ships arise like flies, their brutal prows bristling with weapons and decked in grinning-skull war paint.
