Well, I'm thinking about doing some short stories based off of one of the character's I have created fluff-wise. Namely Brother-Captain Alexius, Master of the Blood Raven's Fleet. I won't have anything for a little while, but I'm gonna try some of this.
Brotherly Bonds Chapter 1
It is said, in the annals of Holy Terra, that there is no history of the Blood Ravens Chapter before the Cursed Founding. Contrary to this however, many chapters have records of the Blood Ravens fighting alongside them dating to the dark years after the great heresy. The Blood Raven’s themselves, by curse of their Gene-Seed, have no recollection of their history than what is written. Some whisper though, that on some worlds there is a secret, one that may lead to the chapter’s greatest glory, or its darkest heresy…
Five ships drifted slowly over the planet Kronus. Each was a Crimson red with Bone, and bore the symbol of the Blood Ravens Chapter. They came out of the warp in the great debris field formed from centuries of warfare on the planet. One of the two Battle-Barges The Litany of Fury slowly began to take the lead. Inside the great ship the commanders of the Crusade were forming out the last of their landing plans.
“Captain Hyrcelon, you will land outside of the Castellum here and secure the ruins to the south; Alexius, the Fourth will land near the chapel and secure the lowlands. The Second will take close the plateaus to the south. Our brothers from the First Company have the honor of taking the Castellum Inccoruptus.” One of the Astartes spoke.
“Captain Thule; Scipios will take my stead with Venetius and take command of the forth, I will ensure that we receive no opposition from orbit.” Another said, staring at the chart of the planets surface.
Thule responded with a voice that resonated with years of a brotherly bond between the two. “Alexius; if you wanted some more time to stare at stars I you could just say, the Imperial Navy has decimated most of the Xenos fleet.” Alexius did not speak, but bowed and turned and began to make his way to the command deck of the ship.
“And what of us, Captain Thule?” Justicar Leonas spoke up, his metal armor seeming completely alien in the presence of the Blood Ravens.
“You shall accompany the second.” Thule responded and quickly dismissed the meeting so the Astartes could prepare for the coming crusade.
Meanwhile, Alexius had already begun to engage part of the remaining Tau fleet. The xenos were taken entirely by surprise as they were trying to regroup after the Imperial Navy destroyed much of their fleet.
“All Lance batteries, fire, target any command ships you see.” Alexius stood at the center of the bridge. His position as Master of the Fleet was something he had taken as a responsibility, destroying Xenos fleets when they tried to stand against him. As the last of the Tau ships were destroyed, the fleet came over Northern Vandea.
“Thule, we are over the Castellum.” Alexius voxed to his long time brother.
“Excellent, so are Crusade truly begins brother? Thule replied. Just as Alexius received the message, Drop pods and Thunderhawks began their descent to Kronus. The Angels of Death had come to Kronus.
Sorry, but I haven't found the indent button yet.
