Welcome to December 2017 at The Ion Age and let me begin by thanking everyone for what was our busiest Black Friday event ever. Now that we are in the final month of the year we will have one more release to present to you next week following up on the Beotan 15mm space werewolves; more on that at the time but it will make those who got the new were's really happy! Right now it is the turn of month long 20% deal off the Canthus Monocycle which is the typical light recon bike of the Khanate Empire and its Legions. Go HERE or read on for more.
With what we know now the loss of the Brightening Star should not have happened but then we were only beginning once more to face an enemy that our long dead forefathers had through banished forever. The Fleet did not arrive in Camarthen space for many months after the loss of the Belkus Labyrinth. It took time to gather the knights and their musters while thinking always of the threat posed by the Marcher Barons. But we did not stand idle. Perhaps we should have. Lectus Bowar led his retinue of a hundred Starvaulters and fifty thousand of Prydia on a rapid strike again the fledgling Khanate. The Brightening Star was one of forty Cassillis class Portable Castles that landed in the vicinity of the ruins of Pelcan city. She was not the only one lost but she was prime in the failure of the containment campaign.
The few survivors of Bower's task force tell of the Brightening Star being taken by surprise by elements of the Styx Legion. Several Tesserans of Canthus pattern monocycles powered straight up the Star's foremost sallying ramp and into her belly soon after landing. Most were obliterated by Angis fire but one must have reached the fore Hurwent generator and detonated against it. Cowardly but it worked. The Brightening Star became her very name for an instant as the generator went critical. Only those outside scouting survived the blast. Bowar vanished along with his flagship and it set the campaign back badly. The Canthus should not be underestimated and it will not be again.
As of Lectus Bowar no one has seen him in the last two years but like all of Princess Cyon's closest he is no mere man. He will have survived. He will rise once more in flame and rage.
Knight General Obermann. Fleet Command. 4331IC
