Subject: Reports on Xenos sightings in the Segmentum Obscuris system. Threat to Solphax Secundus

Several Xenos species have been sighted in or around Solphax Secundus. Threat levels are low, as planetary governors have effective PDF at their disposal.

The Dark Brotherhood: Inquisitor Dantri suspects the possibility of Chaos Marines (Traitors every last one of them) in Segmetum Obscuros may be linked to the Propheticum Hereticus Tenebrae. Adeptus Administratum reserves to doubt on sightings as sources cannot be confirmed as reliable

Parodies of the ancient and noble Eldar have been spotted near Solphax Tertio. It had been thought that this tragic race were extinct in this sector. Imperial Agents are keeping a close watch on these sightings. No aggressive or overt intent on conquest has been identified – threat level insignificant.

Ancient tombs have been discovered on Solphax Secundus. The tombs appear ti originate pre-age of technology. Design does not conform to any known Imperium based culture. Administratum dictates further investigation of the geometric tombs. Orders to dig deeper into the curios have been issued. Threat level high

The Juve Xenos, codenamed Tau, have been operating in this part of the sector. Threat to imperial PDF’s is considered low risk. Planetary Governors are to monitor this xenos. Any sign of expansionist activity should be considered hostile and action taken. Inquisitorial Acolytes have been sent to watch over the Governors and report and deviancy or heresy.

Activity in the Segmentum Pacificus suggest a Xenos Hive Fleet may be heading to the Obscuros system. Codenamed Tobia, this fleet must not be allowed to proceed into the Solphax Planetary Alliance. A company of the Space Wolves chapter operating in the nearby Merates Cluster has been palced on alert.
Threat Level: Omega Apocalyptica

Transcripts have been recovered by scholars that provoke rumours of the Propheticum Hereticus Tenebrae. I reserve judgement on this as noting more than heresy and ramblings of mad men.

Preliminary Analysis of Obelisk found during expedition of Solphax Secundus.
Date: 783M37
Author: Xeno-Arcanist Xoth Lyncarte
///Transcript begins///

The device, for that is what it is in truth, is a curved obelisk that stands approximately 7.5m high. The device was devoid of all signs of age, though I would say that it has stood for many millennia. A detailed analysis with the assistance of Magos Zephrin will be needed to fix its date of origin with greater certainty. The device is fashioned from the psycho-active substance used in all Eldar constructions. However, my colleagues of the Priesthood of Mars have discerned that it is bonded to a seam of crystal that runs deep into the bedrock of this world. This I believe is of considerable significance and I shall return to it later.
On the surface of the device are a series of rune-like inscriptions in low relief. These inscriptions are consistent with a written form of the Eldar tongue. I am familiar enough with the language of the Eldar to give a crude assessment of the meaning of the inscriptions. The basic tone of their meaning is a warning, but a warning imparted not to an enemy but to kin, or those who share in an understanding. It is not the kind of warning I expected, a warning to trespassers in the domain of the Eldar that are all too common to the feral worlds they consider under their protection. Rather the warning was closer in meaning to “Shun this place”, an entreaty to flee in the face of dire peril.
The astropathic staff attached to the expedition inform me that the obelisk broadcasts a powerful psychic signal into the darkness of the surrounding stars. I believe the purpose of this device is to send its message into the void. I am forced to wonder whether other worlds in this volume of space might not harbour similar devices and to speculate at a possible connection with the relative scarcity of Eldar activity in the Solphax Sector.

The preliminary report was the only one to be transmitted prior to the loss of the entire expedition – reasons unknown

Imperial Docket 89
“The return of the Herald – transcribed passages from the Heresy of the Dark. All extant copies burnt during the scourging of the Merates Cluster, text theorised to date from the late M35, translated from unknown Xenos sources”.

In that place shall be a gathering
Among them will be the deluded, the damned and the lost
They shall take their place beneath the light of a sun that shares not and whose power they will not know
The Herald shall return from that great and echoing place
He will return and there will be a great power with him
But his power shall be that of the lost and others, even the damned shall know it not
Fools will be his bearers, his coming will be the coming of ruin and death though it be not of his own making
And so with all in motley and blood the players shall wait and the darkness shall pour, clawing from out of a dark Sun and vomit darkness into the offering bowl
