    Sister Riota
    By: Damien Smy

    It had been two days since the last contact with the Eldar, and Riota, a Veteran Sister Superior in the Order Of Our Martyred Lady, a veteran and survivor of countless battles against heretics, heathens, aliens, and unbelievers. Here, where it mattered most, the sentry post, she was afraid.
    "You old fool," She muttered to herself, "you have a lot to give thanks for." She started to remeniss about her childhood with the other orphans and rejects of her society. They were about twelve years old when a strange, tall lady in a beautiful suit of black armour approached her group as they huddled together to keep their young clothless bodies as warm and dry as possible.
    "Come with me and you will find love, warmth, clothes, faith, and guidance." The armoured lady said with a kindness that the girls hadn't heard before.... Her thoughts were interrupted by an alarm klaxon and dozens of female voices ringing out in alarm, and then the voice of forty bolters firing into the darkness, a Sister Superior approached her with a stern look on her face.
    "Ma'am?" The female warrior asked tentatively. "The Eldar have attacked the north wall, killing four Battle Sisters, and severely wounding the Sister Superior in command of them. We have driven them back into the forest before lack of light prevented us from further pursuit, in case it was a trap.
    "There is light damage to the north wall, but, nothing we won't be able to fix at first light. I have ordered that searchlights be trained on the forest edge and at any indication of another attack to be notified immediately and any appropriate action taken."
    "Thank you Ellen, I am impressed with the way you have been handling yourself and the Sisters under your command," Riota replied. "Now back to your post and send a report every hour."
    "Yes Ma'am." The response came from a rapidly disappearing Ellen. Dawn came without further disturbance, around midday a large force of Eldar mounted on jetbikes assaulted the base of the Adepta Sororitas. The fighting was fierce, both sides inflicted heavy casualties on each other, then abruptly the jetbikers pulled away and sped over the forest.
    Almost an hour later the remaining forces of the Adepta Sororitas came under assault by land forces, they were quickly overwhelmed.
    Veteran Sister Superior Riota, commander of this small outpost lay in a bloodied heap in her bedchambers, after taking several body shot from the strafing jetbikers. As the Eldar were trying to break open her door she let her eyes close and a smile creep onto her face as she remembered the voice of sweetness that brought her and her friends from naked, raped begger girls, to the proud warriors of the Imperial Ecclesiarchy. She never knew whether the Eldar found any survivors, she died as they broke through the door.



    Order of Our Martyred Lady Creation
    By: Joey Konyha (aka, The Dice Titan)



    After Vandire's death, Sebastian Thor struggled to rebuild theEcclesiarchy. Due to the restrictions placed on him by the Decree Passive, Thor could only keep one force under his direct control, the Daughters of the Emperor. Unfortunatly, they were still burning with shame from Vandire's perversion of their purpose and beliefs. Despite this, members flocked to the Daughters. Thor reorganised them, moldingthem into the Adepta Sororitas. To protect them from Administratum meddling, and prevent any reoccurence of Vandire's treachery, Thor split the Sororitas into two Convents, Prioris, which would remain on Terra,and Sanctorum, which would move to one of the biggest strongholds of the Imperial Cult, Ophelia VII. During Thor's reign as Ecclesiarch, the Daughters grew from four thousand, to well over 10,000. Later,Thor's successor, Alexis XXII, further split up the Convents into the smaller Orders. Alexis XXII gave them names from old Imperial Cult legends. The names the Orders Militant were given were the Orders of the Argent Shroud, Ebon Chalice, Valorous Heart, and Fiery Heart. Each recieved about two thousand hardened warriors to form the core of the Order. The Orders of Valorous Heart and Fiery Heart were based in Convent Sanctorum on Ophelia VII. Ebon Chalice and Argent Shroud remaned on Terra. Alexis XXII also created a myriad of other Orders, so that the image of the newly created Adepta Sororitas would not just be of gun weilding religious fanatics. He also formed the Orders Hospitaler, responsable for hospitals and caring for the sick, Orders Dialogis, to spread the Emperor's word to all through translation to the lower languages of theImperium, and the Orders Famulous, who served with the families of the Imperial Lords, so that the Ecclesiarchy can keep a close eye on them.There were also an assortment of smaller Orders created, spread through out the Imperium in order to spread the Emperor's Light.
    After the death of Vandire and the end of the Reign of Blood, the Imperium remained in turmoil for centuries. The damage done by Vandire's neglect and brutality was immense. Because the warp storms that divided the Imperium continued for many more years, Imperial law was absent on many worlds. One of these was the agro world of Barataria
    In 572/ M36, with disorder still gripping much of the Imperium, the Imperial Lord on Barataria, Lord Zynder, taking advantage of a sudden warp storm that isolated the system, declared that the Imperium had collapsed, and that he was the Emperor of the New Imperium. The storms in the warp meant that it would be a long time before Terra would learn of this treachery. Lord Zynder moved to crush all opposition. His first step was to eliminate the biggest threat to his power, the Thunderbirds chapter ofthe Space Marines, based on the desert world of Lapalco, located in the same system as Barataria. His plan was to move with his Imperial Guard regiments and storm the Thunderbirds fortress-monastary, destroying all of their relics and gene-seed bio-tanks, thus basicly destroying the chapter. However, loyalists learned of this, and managed to warn theThunderbirds. The loyalsts were discovered and killed by Zynder's troops. They are, so far, the only non-Space Marines honored wth a burial in a Space Marine fortress-monastary anywhere in the Imperium.Their sacrafice enabled the 2nd, 6th, and 9th companies to escape,along with all the gene-seed and relics of the Chapter. This is known as the Night of Sorrow, and the escaping Chapters were called the Remnants.When Zynder attacked, it was a brutal bombardment from orbit. The monastary was demolished, and many civilians were killed. The suviving Space Marines surrendered when they learned that Zynder threatened to virus bomb the planet. The Chapter calls this the Time of Fury. They were taken to Barataria, and marched through the streets. During this event, remembered by the Thunderbirds as the Day of Shame, a lone voicespoke out.
    A small group of the Order of the Fiery Heart was on the planet, selecting new members from the Scola Progenium on Barataria, when the storms isolated them. The Canoness who was in charge of the recruitment party, Katherine, spoke out against the ill treatment of the Marines. Zynder was awed by the beauty of the Canoness. He decided he wanted her as his Emperess. Telling her that he would negotiate the release of the Marnes, Zynder invited Katherine to his palace, ordering her to come alone. Katherine suspected a trap, but still agreed. When she arrived,she was shown the corpses of the Marines. Zynder told her that they were traitors to his New Imperium, and thus was the fate of all traitors. He then showed Katherine a vast treasure, collected from the Thunderbird's offers, and from around Barataria and the Imperium. He promised it all to her, if only she would marry him. She refused. For many years, Katherine was imprissoned in a tower of the palace, while every day Zynder offered to free her if she married him, and everyday she refused,saying "My love is saved for only the Emperor, for He is truely my Protector, my Father, my Shield."
    No telling how long this would have lasted if there had not been a break in the warpstorms. News went out from Barataria. Soon reinforcements would be moving into the system.With the break in the storm, news could flood in from beyond the system,and the people learned of the treachery of Lord Zynder. When a mob tried to storm his palace to force him out, they were masacred. 350,000 people were slaughtered. When news of this reached the HQ of the 23rd Baratarian Regiment, it was decided the time for force was at hand. Having harbored some of the escapees from the Thunderbirds, the 23rd was truely a powerful force. However, the Royal Guard, with hundreds of tanks and thousands of warriors behind adamantium walls, were stronger. For weeks on end, the 23rd and the Remnants bombarded the walls, attempting to breach them and find Zynder. Zynder, meanwhile, had been driven to near madness by Katherine's refusals. Deciding pain might convince her, he ordered the slow torture of Katherine. The cruel wounds, deep, jagged cuts that rended her skin inflicted tremendous pain on her, but she never waivered, never cried out. Prayers to the Emperor were all that passed her lips. After nearly 7 months of constant bombardment and battle, the 23rd and the Remnants were nearly spent. With reinforcements still several hours away, they readied a last ditch attempt to take the Palace. They prepared to charge the High Gate, and attempted to storm the Palace. To their horror, nearly an entire company of tanks rolledout to meet them. They were out numbered nearly 4 to 1. Regardless, they attacked with a ferocity unparalelled. However, soon the numbers began to tell, and gradually they were begining to be thrown back. The 23rd and the Remnants prepared to fall back, lift the seige, and go into hiding as the sun started to dip below the mountains.
    Suddenly, a blue glow flodded the battlefield. All seemeed to stop, time seemed to freeze. A vision formed in the sky, one of a beautiful woman. All recognized her. She was Katherine, clad in a white robe, with black armor. She brandished a sword, a blood red shield at her feet. In a booming, yet calming voice she spoke. "Fear not, warriors of the Emperor.As my spirit joins Him, I beseech you! Go forth and conquer His foes!" Inspired by the vision, the 23rd and Remnants charged forward. As surviving traitors stated after the battle, they saw the same vision, but it had warned them to give up their fight. Many did, and most turned their guns on their former comrades. Soon, the loyalist forces breeched the walls, just as Thunderhawks bearing some of the Remnants plunged from the sky, landing inside the Palace walls. More Fiery Heart Sisters joined the battle, swarming out of Thunderhawks borrwed from the Thunderbirds that the Remnants were not using. The reinforcements were landing. They stormed the palace, and found Zynder, alone, caressing the bloodied body of Katherine.
    The final tortures were the worst. "If I could not posess her beauty,none would," he whispered, staring at her skull. The skin had beenflayed and peeled from her face. Blood glistened on her body, the floorand the table. A dozen bolters leveled on Zynders head. A Battle Sister strode in, stared at the body of Katherine, then turned to Zynder. "I am Canoness Maria. I am the commander of the Sisters sent here to liberate this planet from your Heresy. You are charged with Murder, Heresy, and Treason. I find you guilty. The punishment is death." Several of the Remnants approached Zynder, forcing him down to hisknees, bending back his head as Canoness Maria prepared to make the death blow with her power sword. Zynder began to sputter "You can't kill me! I am the..." Canoness Maria silenced Zynder with a savage kick in the throat. All watched as Zynder slowly died. Turning to the Canoness,one of the 23rd's Commisars said, "There is a place in the Mausolium o fRemembrance for this Martyr. She will have a place of honor." The Canoness' voice seemed to thunder. "No. She is our Lady. Her serviceand faith to both our Order and the Emperor was without flaw. We will honor her in our way. Her homeworld was this one. She belongs here."The Order did honor Katherine. When she was named a Saint, the Order changed it's name to Order of Our Martyred Lady, and the icon for the Order was changed to the Cross of St. Katherine, depicting her as she was when found after Zynders defeat. The Orders cathedrals, banners, and shrines all feature images of the Miraculous Vision, which is Katherines most enduring miracle.

    I would give this a high rating, were it not for the blatant error from editing in the very first sentence.

    "and Riota, a Veteran Sister Superior in the Order Of Our Martyred Lady, a veteran and survivor of countless battles against heretics, heathens, aliens, and unbelievers."

    Doesnt refer to what Riota is, if you get my drift, either action or emotion. It is only cleared up in the next sentence with "was afraid."

    Very sloppy. Very, very sloppy.

    Someone should cut off Damien (God, what a name..) &#39;s balls off with a blunt knife for this horrid example of text editing.
    "It fits like clothes made out of wasps!"

    Ahem, I&#39;m glad that trait isn&#39;t name consistent.

    Whats wrong with my name? I think its pretty snazzy. Not to mention, people always think of Damien Thorpe (from "The Omen", or whatever that movie is called)

    That&#39;s actually Damien Thorne as the anti-christ.

    I suppose Damien joins the ranks of names you can&#39;t give to a child in western society along with Gaylord, Melvin, Adolf but hopefully not Homer

    Anyway thought the fluff had potential.
    It was detrimental to the story attempting to describe as much of the character in one breath as possible.
    Whoso would be a man must be a non conformist
    People should be taught what is, not what should be.
