The Planet Varrius
Orbit Dist: 2.4AU
Tithe Grade: Adeptus Low
Population: 200 Billion
Varrius is a planet near the Eye of Terror but is also situated in the same system as the Eldar Craftworld of Nacretinei. The Dragon Hawks Chapter of Space Marines is based on this planet and recruits exclusively from Varrius. Craftworld Nacretinei is known for itís raiding of nearby worlds including Varrius. The Eldar sacrifice their troops for one reason. The Eldar can appear out of nowhere only to try and get to any entrance to the tunnels. The Chapterís leaders have sent down teams of tactical marines down into the labyrinth to see if they can find anything the Eldar would be searching for. The Chapter has never found anything other than a wall with runes carved into its delicate surface and intricate patterns normally seen only on the Harlequins. So it thought that something of great importance to both the Eldar and Nacretinei is under the planetís ground near this panel of runes. The Chapter has assigned an honour guard of Terminators to prevent any Eldar from getting near enough to do anything to disturb it. There have been several unsuccessful attacks upon the caves but the honour guard has repelled the onslaught until reinforcements could arrive to help in the defence. The Chapter has assigned the information on the panel as highly classified and only to be read by the Chapter Master, Librarians, Chaplains and the honour guard defending it. The planet has continuous eruption of the ring of volcanoes on its surface. These eruptions cause rivers of lava to carve the valleys into the land. The folk of Varrius live in between the valleys on the land left behind by the flows of magma. They mine the planetís ore and minerals that the Adeptus Mechanius need to manufacture the weapons to defend the planet and Imperium. The ore is sent to the planets orbiting moon that is a miniature forgeworld that produces the nearly all Chapterís weapons. The firstborn sons of the families of the people of Varrius are sent here to begin their apprenticeships to the Chapter. The moons furnaces and forges are heated by the running of the liquid lava collected from the planet below. This lava is indispensable to the forgeworld otherwise the heat needed to run the forgeries would not be sufficient. The moon also produces the gigantic space hulks and the Chapterís great Inferno Dreadnoughts. The planets people have a great bond with the Adeptus Mechanius and trade some of the excess weapons with them. The people know nothing of the panel under the surface of Varrius. They think that the Eldar are raiding small villages for the minerals they mine. This is just a rumour spread by the space marines that walk through the cities and villages. The Space Marines also have bases on the surrounding systems planets but rarely recruit from these planets. The bases are more to research the Eldarís whereabouts and the information on the panel and if there are more on the systems other planets. The Chapter has not found another one yet, but has reason to believe that they have found some information that the panel could either be a Webway gate or a door to a chamber further underneath the planet which could contain any number of things sacred to the Eldar such as sprit stones of ancestors foregone a millennia ago. The Eldar secret may never be found out unless the Chapter sends down a Company to open the Great Door as the Chapterís leaders now call it. Recently weird shapes that the Techmarines cannot explain have set off the Chapterís sensors on the surrounding planets. The shapes appear to be moving rapidly as though in the warp but as the sensors are picking them up. The Chapter Master believes that there is some other force at play in the system. So they Chapter maintains a high alert ready to counterstrike any force that is unknown to them. So far they have not caught one of the mysterious ships but a couple of Eldar ones and have incinerated many a group of pillaging orks that have wandered into their system. A planet near Varrius has been classified Imperius Perdita by the Inquisition. The Chapter has disobeyed the ruling of the Inquisition before and is planning to send a force here to set up a research base to study the creatures of the planet and the reason for it to classified this way. The Chapter reckons that there is another panel below this planets icecaps and wish to find it to see if it will help them in their quest to find out what the Eldar want with their planetís panel. The scans of this planet by the Chapter shows that there is a huge shape resting on the planets surface. The chapter believes it could be a Xenos spaceship or base but they need to find out for sure before attacking it.
Well that was pretty good. Not to many problems there. I was speed reading cause I'm at work but it sounded pretty good. Looking forward to what causes their fall.
