Operation Paradise City

Thought of the day: Life is a prison, death shall be my release

Situation

  1. General: As part of his deal with Inquisitor Ragnar Kjeldsen, Vladorf Kyro has agreed to lead a Deathwatch Kill-Team to a vault of Xenos technology on the hive world Argoth. This vault and all heretical technology should be destroyed. One exception is a Xenos artifact which Kyro claims can exorcize Chaos Daemons in normal space. This artifact is to be returned for study.
  2. Battlespace
    1. Joint Operations Area/Higher Command: Lord Commander Ebongrave has quarantined the world Argoth, and has declined Deathwatch’s request for access. Inquisitorial mandate grants the Kill-team access, however expect any Imperial forces in the region to be hostile.
    2. Area of Interest: Xenos technology vault.
    3. Area of Operations: Hive Korianthus, Argoth, Canis Salient Quarantine Zone.
  3. Enemy Forces
    1. There are 61 billion inhabitants on Argoth, who have chosen to ally themselves with Tau. General Order 169 restricts all traffic from Argoth, trapping the inhabitants planetside. Local forces are considered hostile and tainted by Xenos. Planetary forces have access to Imperial Guard armaments and Tau technology.
    2. Enforcing the blockade of the quarantined worlds is Battlegroup Atlas. The Battlegroup patrols the quarantined region at irregular intervals searching for vessels in violation of the quarantine in addition to monitoring the progress of the quarantine. Battlegroup vessels include Battleships, Cruisers, and Escort ships. Due to superior firepower, it is recommended to retreat if confronted and return later.
  4. Friendly Forces: The Rogue Trader vessel Guilded Raptor will provide transportation to and from Argoth.
  5. Attachments and Detachments: The Canis Crusade has not given approval for this mission, so no nearby Imperial Forces will be available for aid.
  6. Assumptions: Vladorf Kyro has been granted a non-hereditary Warrant of Trade for his valuable intelligence on Xenos and heretic activities in Jericho Reach. This mission is in part to determine the validity of certain claims by the newly appointed Rogue Trader.
  7. Considerations: The Xenos technology may pose a threat to the quarantine efforts and the crusade in general.

Mission

Locate the Xenos technology vault and recover the artifact capable of exorcizing daemons. Destroy the vault to prevent it falling into local forces’ hands.

Execution

  1. Commander’s Intent: It has been noted that no Chaos activity has ever been documented on Argoth. Any technology capable of preventing or exorcizing Daemons is worth a second look.
  2. Concept of Operations: Rogue trader Vladorf Kyro will provide transportation to and from Argoth. Kyro will provide guidance to the Vault and assist with identifying the artifact
  3. Tasks: Secondary objectives: Report on the local resistance and quarantine efforts.
  4. Reserve: Not applicable.

Administration and Logistics

  1. Personnel
    1. Deathwatch Jericho Reach Kill-team EN-54 (Omega Dawn)
    2. Watch Commander Alexios Dranias
  2. Logistics
    1. Rogue Trader vessel Guilded Raptor will provide transportation.

Command and Signal

  1. Command Relationships: Rogue Trader Kyro has recently been granted a Warrant of Trade and therefore should be very helpful on the mission. Any issues with Kyro are to be reported.
  2. Command Posts and Headquarters: Forward command post will be aboard Thunder’s Word. Headquarters is Watch Fortress Erioch.
  3. Succession of Command: Should squad leader be incapacitated, leadership should pass to most senior team member (determined first by service to Deathwatch, then service to Adeptus Astartes.
  4. Signal:
    1. Use channel RT-101.7 to contact Guilded Raptor.

Operation Burn In Hell

Thought of the day: Negotiation is surrender

Situation

  1. General: Ordo Xenos and Adeptus Mechanicus have lost contact with a jointly operated secret research facility located deep within the Warp. The research data at this facility is critical to the Orpheus Crusade and must be recovered.
  2. Battlespace
    1. Joint Operations Area/Higher Command: This mission is under the authority of Deathwatch and Adeptus Mechanicus based in Jericho Reach.
    2. Area of Interest: Medicae Level, Engineering level.
    3. Area of Operations: Eye in the Storm research facility.
  3. Enemy Forces
    1. Approximately 500 Tyranid test subjects are imprisoned on the research station. Test subjects should be detained in holding cells. Holding cells are scattered around the station, but the largest concentration is below the Medicae level. If free, expect Tyranids to use biomorph weapons.
    2. As the station resides in the warp, there is a possibility of Demonic incursion. Any damage to the Geller Field generator will result in a legion of Demons entering the station. The region of the Warp is not known to be aligned with a specific Chaos being.
  4. Friendly Forces: Adeptus Mechanicus Explorer vessel will provide transportation to the Eye in the Storm.
  5. Attachments and Detachments: The Adeptus Mechanicus crew is concerned about contamination, and will therefore provide no additional support for this mission.
  6. Assumptions: Recent reports from the Eye in the Storm indicate the research subjects have been making multiple escape attempts in the recent past. Without a detectable Hive Mind, the subjects appear to launch coordinated escape attempts. The inquisition and Adeptus Mechanicus believe that the station has been compromised by the research subjects.
  7. Considerations: The primary mission of the Eye in the Storm is to determine if the Shadow in the Warp could be detected to serve as an early detection system for the Dagon Hive’s activates in the Orpheus Salient. This research is critical.

Mission

Recover the research data from the cogitator-core. Redact the Eye in the Storm research station.

Execution

  1. Commander’s Intent: The head researcher Magos Biologis Melkov Kreel has been under suspicion for questionable research activities which may be related the the current situation. Investigate and collect evidence.
  2. Concept of Operations: Use a shuttle to dock with the Eye in the Storm. Recover research data from the experiments on the Medicae Level. Scuttle the station.
  3. Tasks: Secondary objectives: Locate Magos Biologis Melkov Kreel and return him to Ordo Xenos for inquisition.
  4. Reserve: Not applicable.

Administration and Logistics

  1. Personnel
    1. Deathwatch Jericho Reach Kill-team EN-54 (Omega Dawn)
    2. Watch Commander Alexios Dranias
  2. Logistics
    1. Adeptus Mechanicus Explorer vessel will provide transportation, but is under strict orders to not board the research station.

Command and Signal

  1. Command Relationships: Ship crew are aware of Inquisition representatives onboard and this is considered a joint mission with Deathwatch taking the lead role.
  2. Command Posts and Headquarters: Forward command post will be aboard Thunder’s Word. Headquarters is Watch Fortress Erioch.
  3. Succession of Command: Should squad leader be incapacitated, leadership should pass to most senior team member (determined first by service to Deathwatch, then service to Adeptus Astartes.
  4. Signal:
    1. Use channel AM-191.7 to contact Explorer Vessel.

Operation What It Takes

Thought of the day: A single thought of heresy can blight a lifetime of faithful duty

Situation

  1. General: A Deathwatch Kill-Team has gone missing while on assignment. You are currently in orbit of Coranin, the operation location of the missing Kill-Team.
  2. Battlespace
    1. Joint Operations Area/Higher Command: There are no friendly forces within the region of the Hadex Anomaly.
    2. Area of Interest: Deathwatch Kill-Team landing zone
    3. Area of Operations: Stigmartus Librarium and surrounding areas.
  3. Enemy Forces
    1. Approximately 1,000 Stigmartus cultists in region. Forces in region are entrenched in Eight sub-libraries scattered around Librarium. The sub-libraries form a non-uniform ring around the central librarium, roughly 5 Km from the librarium. Expect use of Imperial Guard equivalent equipment.
    2. Approximately 100 Stigmartus Traitor Space Marines in region. Forces in region are entrenched in Eight sub-libraries scattered around Librarium. Traitor marines serve as elite guards and library masters. Expect use of outdated Astartes equipment and Chaos Sorcery.
    3. Unknown number of daemons in region. Forces are reportedly summoned at random from the Warp by Chaos Sorcerers. Expect lesser daemons to be summoned after encountering any chaos forces. As the planet is currently aligned with Tzeentch, expect the Daemon Prince on the world to be a powerful Sorcerer.
  4. Friendly Forces: The Mourning Herald will remain in orbit while Kill-Team is on mission and may be able to offer limited assistance.
  5. Attachments and Detachments: Due to the recent incident on the Mourning Herald, support requests should be limited.
  6. Assumptions: The mission Kill-Team is assumed to be alive and under heavy fire.
  7. Considerations: Kyro still needs to be delivered safely to Watch Fortress Andronicus. As Coranin is a Daemon World, normal physical laws may not be reliable.

Mission

Search and Rescue of Kill-Team EN-19.

Execution

  1. Commander’s Intent: Locate and evacuate all 5 team members of Kill-Team EN-19.
  2. Concept of Operations: Use drop pod to land near last know coordinates of Kill-Team transportation, a Rogue Trader ship. Locate Kill-Team members. Use Deathwatch Thunderhawk or summon evacuation from Mourning Herald.
  3. Tasks: Secondary objectives: Complete Kill-Team EN-19’s mission if incomplete.
  4. Reserve: Not applicable.

Command and Signal

  1. Command Relationships: Ship crew are aware of Inquisition representatives onboard. Kyro’s presence and reason for transport are classified.
  2. Command Posts and Headquarters: Forward command post will be aboard Thunder’s Word, which will rendezvous at Watch Station Andronicus. Headquarters is Watch Fortress Erioch.
  3. Succession of Command: Should squad leader be incapacitated, leadership should pass to most senior team member (determined first by service to Deathwatch, then service to Adeptus Astartes.
  4. Signal:
    1. Use channel IG-101.7 to contact Mourning Herald.
    2. Deathwatch Passive Vox Channel E-990 can be used to triangulate Kill-Team location. Avoid using that channel until locating EN-19 to avoid compromising the team or notifying the enemy of EN-54’s presence in case the communication channel has been compromised.

Operation Welcome to the Jungle

Thought of the day: Even a man who has nothing can still offer his life.

Situation

  1. General: For five solar months, the Castobel system has been under assault from Tyranid Hive Fleet Dagon. While the star system’s fate hangs in the balance, the moon Tantalus is in the process of falling. It is presumed that 89% of the 79 million inhabitants of Tantalus have already fallen, with 100% casualties expected within two solar days. A Cult Mechanicus Biologis contingent performed scans of the Tyranid bio-forms and attack-patterns. The shuttlecraft containing the contingent crashed in the sub-artic region near a Departmento Munitorum facility. Tyranid forces are rapidly approaching the region and are expected to arrive within hours.
  2. Battlespace
    1. Joint Operations Area/Higher Command: Lunar government non-responsive
    2. Area of Interest: Crashed Cult Mechanicus shuttlecraft
    3. Area of Operations: Northern pole region, Pyroclast-Gamma-9 (promethium refinery complex)
  3. Enemy Forces
    1. Unconfirmed small number of Tyranid forces in the region. These forces are scouting the area for survivors. Reported positions center on Pyroclast-Gamma-9. Last reported position was 2 hours ago. Expect use of bio-form weapons capable of penetrating armor and flesh boring parasite projectiles.
    2. Aerial scouts report large swarm (~5000) Shrikes approaching the region from the South. Speed and position estimates 6 hours to arrival at Pyroclast-Gamma-9 as of 1 hour ago. Expect use of bio-form weapons capable of penetrating armor and flesh boring parasite projectiles.
  4. Friendly Forces: It is unlikely that friendly military forces remain in operation
  5. Attachments and Detachments: A Thunderhawk has been assigned for evacuation of the Kill-team
  6. Assumptions: Planetary military has fallen. Civilians and deserters are likely to be hostile given the dire situation.
  7. Considerations: Ordo Xenos has requested first debrief of Magos Vyakai

Mission
