Just for fun I did the math to figure out how fast these ships go: The Artefacts defy analysis by tech-augury and are nearly imperious to age and harm. Hulking Kaptins emerge from time to time, cunning beasts who lead their followers forth from Undred-Undred Teef across rxpanse Koronus Expanse in search of new loot for the clans.
Small prospecting and bio-augury colonies were established by a number of Rogue Traders in the late 8th century of the 41st Millennium.
There are no permanent structures on the surface of Burnscour — only the slowly dissolving metal carcasses of landing craft brought down by the planet’s storms, the few melted ruins of structures built by fools, and the swaying jungles ever growing beneath the caustic rain.
I’ll give you a really solid hint: At further ruinous cost, she provided the exiles with illegal slaves from Footfall, provided them with the finest foods using the lesser voidships of her fleet, and allowed their spies and agents to pass to and from Imperial space in the holds of her ships.
The character of the Screaming Vortex is that of a raging beast whose teeth clash and gnaw in a neverending search of food, and it is said by the void born that it has claimed entire fleets to satiate its endless hunger.
Human societies and communities long separated from the greater body of humanity dwell in the Heathen Stars. Ork Freebooterz want more of everything: These strange storms within the warp, and many others beside, all whirl and dance together and so create a wall within the sea of souls that cannot be crossed except by a rare few stable warp routes. Except all the lore; gravity wells, the general instability of the warp, etc. Drawn by the flow of wealth, pirates and servants of Dark Gods have moronus slipped into the Expanse, eager to cast destruction upon the works of the God-Emperor’s faithful, living by what they wrest from dead hands, while the Expanse itself holds many secrets and native inhabitants no less dangerous.
And so the cycle continues, and will continue, as long as koronjs exist who see danger as merely the cost of opportunity. Of course, they are not the only dangers one may face. Those few endeavours that have koonus made to establish settlements koronuz to harvest the wealth of the Foundling Worlds have met with disaster or misfortune. Footholds have been built close to the few semi-stable warp routes into the area.
Most races have some sort of long bladed item in their armoury and many Explorers make korlnus use of those they find that take their fancy, either as trophies or for more practical reasons. Orks constantly strive to overcome and dominate their fellows, with the most successful and powerful bosses growing in size to mirror their kroonus.
Cloaked and unseen until it is too late, the Crow Spirits are borne on a storm within the Warp and realspace that boils and screams with ethereal voices. Some navigators who have strayed within or to the edge of the great storms whisper of the Deathveil as a strange cascade of unnatural beauty that will draw the mind of koronsu unwary to within its soft and silent embrace never to return.
Not to mention the Warp travel can leave corruption “residue” that can taint the planets in the system if to many portals to the warp are opened close by. Cross post it here!

Even the relatively explored systems close to the Maw have all felt the iron fist of Ork piracy; in the past Footfall itself has come under attack from the ships of Ork Kaptins who had become powerful enough to command great swarms of gunships and kroozers. Its human population is composed of feral and vicious savages who daub themselves in ash and powered rust; the knowledge and sophistication of the ancestors who built exppanse ruined hives and treasures rotting within are long lost to them.
The few structures that have their own stable gravity generators are highly desired prizes and are fought over by the most powerful factions, changing hands over the corpses and regrets of their prior occupants with alarming regularity. On some planets, a sighting of the Whisper of Anaris in local space is enough to kick off a frenzy of prayer and sacrifice to drive the koronks ship of the Expanse away.
These fallen Astartes have assumed dominion over the lesser expansf of the Dark Gods like proud and bloody lords who demand that lesser men bend their knee or be subject to torment okronus death.
It has lured those whose goal is only wealth, and has become a battleground between rivals for its bounty. It is a expaanse that exits to feed its feral packs of Chaos raiders with metal and supplies, who return with captured prisoners to toil in the foundries and poisoned mines.
So it is that the few debased colony palaces harbour those who eat human flesh, and they are koronuss hungry. Then, it is said the murderers bombarded the world, burning its surface to xepanse and choking its atmosphere with smoke. They are a green-skinned blight on the galaxy, constantly spawning, gathering together in huge numbers, and battering through the stars like a bloody fist, looting and destroying all that is in their path.
Ten citadels project from the crust, each massive as a hive, echoing and empty but for the whispering dust of xenos dead. They destroy and kill with a cold precision — and then leave, taking no prizes. An attack by Ork Freebooterz tends to be brutal and direct, with the Ork ships rushing exxpanse toward the enemy firing every gun they have before ramming and boarding their victims.
On certain planets, they may worship the glory of Chaos as a pantheon of gods and divine servants, the dark reality of their beliefs cloaked in strange names and mystery. Many millennia past, the alien civilisation that dwelt in this domain fell victim to a nameless doom that left only empty, desolate worlds and crumbling structures in its wake.
Burnscour is a Kofonus World of roaring storms, jungles, and strange beasts. M41 and promptly established his intent by shelling Footfall and engaging Calligos Winterscale in battle. Beyond the larger nebulae of the Koronus Expanse are regions visited only by the silent Disciples of Thule and few others.

Mekboyz are ingenious but unreliable artisans who are masters of creating ramshackle but fearsome starships, war machines, and weapons from scrap and salvage. These are stars that guttered and died long ago in some vast and sweeping catastrophe. Rogue Traders vie with one another for known resources, heedless of lives lost in the pursuit of riches, while a tentative attempt at Imperial colonization follows in their wake.
Beneath this tumult of lawlessness can be found and an even more shadowy world: Huge towers vent geothermic heat through vast shafts into the turbulent atmosphere, the heat driving frenzied storm belts of churning clouds. In ages past, man believed that all evil and corruption in the Koronus Expanse emanated from the Accursed Demesne: Therefore, it would be wise to go around the anomaly, unless it is pressing for time.
The card signifies the commencement of a blessed endeavour but also the passing out of the realm of the sanctuary of the known. He is taking ruthless advantage of the numerical superiority of the Flash Gitz and Freebooterz in Undred Undred Teef, as well being bigger and harder than all the other Warbosses, to support his rise to power.
Here, religious fanatics rub shoulders with assassins, spies, fugitives from Imperial justice, narco-tribesmen, expansr crew on furlough, and a kooronus range of disreputable merchants. Amongst voidfarers the Foundling Worlds are described as a cursed place of sudden Warp Storms, temporal distortions, and strange stellar phenomena, and it is said that nothing will come to any koronux that is undertaken within its bounds.
His small fleet tore through the defences arrayed against them. Footholds have been built close to the few semi-stable Warp routes into the area. They come to Burnscour to stock the ever-hungry fighting pits of the distant Calixis Sector with saurian leapers, gargantipedes, and other horrors of fang and maw. Navigating is a far cry from traversing the established warp routes of the Calixis Sector.
