Quaddus Campaign: Status Report

As Phase 1 of the Quaddus Campaign is coming to an end I thought that I would give a brief status report on the fighting in the system.

The fighting on Quaddus Tertius, the system’s mining world, has been picking up. Reports have come in from Imperial Allies, the T’au Empire and Ulthwe Aeldari, of roaming bands of at least two different Klans of Orks and some Tyranids, not to mention a group of roaming, angry miners. So far, the other planets haven’t reached the level of unrest as Tertius is experiencing.

After weeks of patrols, Quaddus Terrius still remains, for the most part, in the control of the Imperial Governor. With this uneasy stalemate the Planetary Governor, Stavros van der Wyld, is discussing options with his staunchest ally, the T’au. The main discussion item is the impending malaise and how to evacuate the peoples of the Quaddus System, well at least the ruling elite.

There has been no communication from Quaddus Quartus where there has been a strong presence of Adeptus Mechanicus researching ancient alien artifacts. Not even the battalion of Imperial Guard stationed there have reported in days.

Quaddus Secundus is still producing its tithe of food stuff, van der Wyld has decided to pull the troops from the Quartus (assuming that they are still battle ready) to reinforce Secundus.

Quaddus Campaign: Help Arrives

The shipment of Gue’la1 minerals was late. Very late. The Gue’la should have been at the drop site 4 rotaa2 ago. Tension was high in the convoy, trying to hide this long in the Gue’la system was dangerous. There were not enough military ships in this convey to put up a fight if the Gue’ron’sha3 were to find the convoy lurking this close to an Imperial world. That is when the Kor’la on comms rose from her station and walked over to the Kor’o Au’lys.

Quaddus Campain: Mayday-Mayday?

On the largest, most prosperous planet in the Quaddus system, a small backwater solar system in the Nephilim Sector, Ultima Segmentum, just North of the Pariah Nexus, things were not right. It was hard to put a finger on it, but there had been no interstellar traffic for weeks now. No official response from outside the system. With no official word, no outside the system traffic, and a strange malaise beginning to affect the outer planets the System, the Planetary Governor on Quaddus Primus was starting to get extremely nervous and befuddled by the situation. The situation was growing steadily worse this month. The disappearances of key nobles and military personnel, coupled with no contact with the Imperium was rapidly approaching a breaking point. The time had come, fearing that his system had been abandoned by the Imperium to suffer whatever fate awaited them. The Planetary Governor, Stavros van der Wyld, decided to break with protocol and put out a distress call in all directions on an open channel; right now, he couldn’t be picky on who his potential saviors would be. The Governor recorded all of the details of their plight and had the message broadcast on a loop.

The only planet other than Quaddus Primus that is of interest is Quaddus Quartus, the farthest from the sun, is nothing more than a frozen tundra. A quarantined frozen tundra. Half a millennia ago the planet was first quarantined by the Adeptus Mechanicus, rumor had it that the were there on The Quest for Knowledge when hydro miners uncovered ancient Xenos ruins under the ice. For a hundred years the ruins were kept secret from the  Ordo Xenos, but once they found out the Adeptus Mechanicus personnel were cleansed and a more stringent defense satellite ring was put in orbit.
