The Pontifex Campaign
A former forgeworld, left by the Adeptus Mechanicus after the core hardened from the massive geothermal furnace activity on the planet. No longer able to sustain a full-blown contigent from the Adeptus Mechanicus, the ashwastes of Pyranthax have been taken over by countless xeno and traitor forces. Many secrets lay in the old forges and the Mechanicum may have forgotten where they placed them all. A few towering Hives rise up through the gloom of the polluted atmosphere of the old forgeworld. Amongst these hives is the capital Darron Hive where billions of souls reside in an area under the sway of the wicked Dark Eldar.
