The Ghosts of Stygian Prime

The Ghosts of Stygian Prime

Stygian Prime is an agri-world that is once again at peace. For three hundred years, the planet was rocked by a clandestine civil war of assassination and lighting raids that kept civilian deaths to a minimum. Since whichever side was in power at the time continued to tithe, the Imperium failed to notice the conflict.

Veterans from the war make up the Ghosts, a new regiment and the first that includes members from both warring factions. They have never faced the horrors of the Warp or the rage of a Wauggh! but they understand war. Col. Dalton made a name for himself on Stygian Prime, leading successful battles against larger forces time and again, but he is not the man he used to be. Now, he mostly keeps to himself and avoids doing more than the bare minimum to get by. Because he is a shell of the man he once was, Dalton’s soldiers have learned that they need to depend on themselves if they want to survive. As such, they show tremendous initiative, leading to success time and again.
