Alright. So we are one 26 full battle brothers from the Blood Angels (and one Flesh Tearer, Brother Librarian Arbun) sent in this new founding to the Targon System on the only habitable world of Targon Prime. The planet has one small fortress that was more the ceremonial residence that, with the handover of the system to us, is now ours. The former Planetary Governor is now one of our attendants, he commands the PDF under us.
On our new homeworld has a single large continent. The north is mostly snowy mountains. The people here make food through hunting, trade and light mining.
In the far east is a small desert, roughly the size of Australia, inhabited by a mix of nomadic herders, fishermen and some permanent settlements around the coast and some in the interior. While they are ethnically the same as the rest of the planet they are a bit different culturally. This area is notably a lot like Baal. But with less radiation and no mutants.
The south, west and central area is a mix of forested areas and planes that are used for cultivating fields or grazing cattle.
Several years ago we had a battle with the Blood Ravens chapter as they attempted to plunder our relics on our homeworld. In the end, we killed them all, "sunk" their strike cruiser and went over the the contents of what we could salvage. We eventually brought the ship back to being space worthy and we also recovered a mix and match of relics from other chapters and have been returning them as they come for them.

We then began to expand. on our world we have began to construct two cities. One around the old governors fortress residence and the other to the east where we have built our fortress monastery.

In the far mountains to the north our Magos friend, Jarvus, has built a massive anti-orbital gun with 20 smaller suport guns built in a ring around it and 200 Anti-ship missile silos. this will protect our world fairly well.

Our chapter master earned his place as a captain on Baal but he seems to be of the same stock as the people of this world as he bears their unique facial tattoos. However he spends most of his time with his face concealed.

As for the people of this world they are a refined feudal society with a honorable warrior culture. They have proven a stable and reliable recruiting pool.

Living in fortified villages they are nearly self suntanning but in previous thread we have taken efforts to improve their lives.

Also forgot that we have a helmet made of animate metal with our Primarch's face we bought. the Chapter master wears it into battle.

our PDF

75 000 men under arms on Targon organized into 25 regiments.
The 1st being known as the Pure Bloods. The are given into the Cult of our primarch and are given a special implant that keeps their blood pure and free of taint. They also forgo lho-sticks and alcohol to become living temples of war for our primarch.

All of our men are armed with ancient G3A3 Autoguns. We found a way to make lasguns fit into the same frame but have not put them into production.

Each regiment has a pioneer attachment that carry both engineer and sapper duties. The 13th regiment is our dedicated Pioneer Corps and will be our dedicated siege regiment once we have the ability to arm them properly.

As for other PDF related resources.

1 Old Emperor Class battleship, the Accuser.
2 unarmed transports.
1 Valkyrie
2 Aquila Landers
500 Averus transports
1 baneblade
300 Chimera transports
1000 Mortars and Thudd guns

We also have a wandering law enforcement group known as Wardens who enforce our laws and settle disputes while respecting the peoples common law. We have about 300 of them

Targons resources:

Targon produces over 500 million metric tons of food a year. This is a mix of gains, Cattle and fish.

We have 1 small ship manufactorum we placed next to the old fort.
1 Large manufactorum built on top of a mountian and is operating at about 15% due to lack of tech priests.
1 Sanguinary Temple where we train our clergy.
We have a small growing Guild system developing in the Oldfort city.
We have built a train line to link the two cities of Oldfort and Highfort (monastery) so even during the hard 8 month winters we can move between them.
We built a simple dirt road system that connects all the villages on the continent.
We have also introduced tractors the are powered with large lasgun style batteries that charge in the sunlight.

We have 20 greenhouses on some of the island chains that grow potent medicinal herbs. however if they grow out of control we could be living on a death world. The greenhouses are laden with melta charges and flamer armed servitors.

On Seldus IV we have a mess.

When the Governor rebelled one city on an island remained loyal. It was heavily damaged but we took back the world with the Aid of our PDF and the Imperial Navy.

But the economy is in ruins. The world once produced Centaur chassis but the factories are ruined. The farmers and fisher men are back at work but no one else is.

To top it off the war killed 70% of the male population.

But they do have a orbital shipyard that is intact but unmanned since the end of the war.
We also found some old Ruins here, looking to see how old they are.
Last thread we went over and spoke to the governess and gave her a free hand to get the economy back on track. We also told her to raise all female regiments.
We also found out that the Governor of Seldus Prime was putting pressure on her. So we went and straightened him out. We struck a deal that he would give us 5 regiments from his world as well as technical experts to help rebuild Seldus IV as long as we supplied food to Seldus Prime ans Centaur chassis for his PDF once the factories are rebuilt.
We also found a small sapient small reptilian race that worship humans. we have set up a research facility on their world to excavate human ruins on this world as their legends tell of floating cities the humans lived in when they uplifted their species. teaching them math and science. Possibly be able to locate STCs here. but the species is fractions into 3 major power blocs and seem to have nuclear weapons.

But last game was also had our Magos send out a call to gain aid from the mechanicus. We have gotten one reply so far. But it has been from the Ultramarines... We gave them a First Edition copy of the Codex Astartes and they said they would repay us for our good will at some point.

They say they are on their way to Targon.

"Brothers, to what do we owe the grace of your presence?"

"Let it be known that the Sons of Guilliman are not ones who forget hospitality."

Since we returned their relics and gave them that First Edition copy of the Codex they have come with gifts.

15 suits of Terminator armour, Unpainted and right from Mars and a set of master crafted Power Claws.

This is our first set of terminator armour. We found one that was heavily damaged and has been put on the back log with all the rituals and such that are associated with each bolt.
Yes one scout has sprouted vestigial wings, They are roughly the size of ones palm but have not gown since.

The Ultras pack up and take their leave. So far the relationship between the two of us relations have been ok.

But now on Targon the harvest is done and soon the long winter will come. Lasting about 8.5 months. This will cut off nearly all non airborn transit on our world.

So if we are to go out on some campaigning now would be the time.

And us needing to recruit females from Seldus IV gave me an idea for some unique equipment.

As for that we are not compliant to begin with.

We currently are working on expending our chapter fortress by adding towers with anti-orbital laser cannons.

Magos Jarvus has been working on them.

On Seldus IV we have gotten word that the water distributional and treatment systems are up and running again. Next will be the mines and civil housing.

Also the expidition has dated the ruins on Seldus IV as being from the Dark age of Technology.

"My Lords.... We have been unable contact you and we are in desperate need of your aid."

"Governor Zhao on Seldus Prime controls the system with an Iron Grip."

"You see, he is the only one who controls in system transport. You see without him the system would fail. Without him food would not leave seldus IV to the other worlds, the minerals would not come from Seldus I and the arms would not come from Seldus III.

The governors give you a list of the resources at their disposal:

Govenor Sochi has 2 full regiments on Seldus I and another one on the moon Seldus I-I with a small spaceport
Governor Yamata has 15 regiments on Seldus II and about 70 mines
Governor Bo has 5 Regiments on Seldus III and factories that can build small arms and light artillery
Governess Lady Izumo has a Loyal Militia formed around the first female recruits of her new PDF on Seldus IV and the centaur factories are being repaired.
Governor Himiyachi has 1 regiment on Seldus Minos and a factory that can make small fliers of various types.

Nothing seems to be openly heretical in his communications with the other governors. But he seems to be somewhat anti-imperial at times but then complains about his tithes being on time. So it is hard to say.

How shall we proceed?

Invite the Governor of Seldus prime to the fortress, gauge him, and ask what was up with the anti-imperial bullshit. If he turns out to be heretical, dispose of him there. While the gov is out, have the top 150 scouts waiting in orbit, along with the battle brothers, the Chaplain, the Techpriest, and whatever armor/other stuff would be needed. If shit does hit the fan, we need to contact the PDF forces immediately and tell them that we have assumed direct control of the Seldus Prime, and to not resist. Do not have other planet's forces intervene, we dont want this to be an inter-planetary war or something.
