The planet of Henlock remains in the clutches of the Archenemy and hope is all but a fading memory to the wretched people of the world.
Their homes shattered by war; machines, men, women & children massacred, their lives destroyed by a foe they cannot hope to defeat.
But they have not been abandoned to be crushed beneath the boots of the enemy for the slumbering giant that is the Imperial Warmachine has awoken.
Battlefleet Prosperitas has mustered a counter-invasion fleet, drawing troops and specialists from regiments and Adepta across the sector.
Even now they muster at a staging area close to the disputed world, with dozens of capital ships carrying tens of thousands of brave warriors and even a titan barge from the Legio Ignis escorted by a Skitarii landing ship.
The Lord-Admiral intends to return the favour paid to the sector by the Chaos fleet, beginning the attack with a massive blitz on the enemy lines to drive a spearhead through their fleet and begin immediate assault drops onto the planet surface.
This tactic means that the first stage of the fight must be that of the infantry alone, for only the fastest and most agile of assault ships have any chance of running the gauntlet of the enemy fleet and captured planetary defences.
Only the bravest and most skilled will be part of the first wave to make the landing and forge the beachheads to allow for overwhelming might of the Imperial armoured companies to land.
Those who choose to lead the invasion will certainly suffer the most casualties, but will also win the greatest share of the glory in the victory that they shall ignite the flames of.
Do you have what it takes to ride the flaming wings of fury and be amongst the first to shed the blood of the Archenemy?
Operation Righteous Vengeance begins today!
Death unto Darkness is a Warhammer 40,000 LARP that has been running in the UK for the past 2 years and the next game 'On Wings of Fury' is running from the 8th to the 10th of March 2013 at Candlestone campsite in Bridgeend, Wales.
Although most player slots are now filled we are still looking for as many crew as possible.
A crew ticket is only £5 and for that price you get a Friday evening meal, Saturday breakfast, lunch and evening meal and as many snacks as you can eat. You also get to take on the roles of the forces of Chaos and bring the fight to the players!
Crewing the game is a great way to learn the system, which uses traditional LARP weapons mixed with NERF guns for ranged combat, and the Jackals players we've had come along in the past have all had great things to say about the system.
If you're interested, please sign up to the DuD forums at http://www.deathuntodarkness.org/forum and request to be added to the crew forum for the game.
Hope to see you there!
