I'd suggest that the Wardens of Light silence the Screaming World. They also take Isstvan III as per the first thing I ever wrote for the project... three years ago, my word.

 

The former certainly could work, though it's going to be rough since only Pariahs can deploy. 

 

The first time or the second time?

First time. There's no resurgence, as the power of the Warsingers is symbolically undone.

First batch of reader's notes regarding Titandeath:

Void War:
Torpedoes and lightcraft require localised breaches in spaceship void shields to reach the ship.

Titanicus Assets:
.Lots of structural details on types of Titan conveyer craft, but very little specific on measurements or weapons.
.Void battlegroup "fit to rival a subsector fleet".
.Pre-heresy Titanicus deployments were often only a single maniple. Now a thirty Titan battle is considered a skirmish.

Oniscidari drop-tank:
.Assault shuttle/tank with mechanical landing/locomotion claws.
.Armed with plasma callivars
.Can hold 24 Skitarii or 12 Thallax or an unspecified number of automata
.Can instead carry scrapcode or nanomachine deliverers
.Can burn its way through a hull.



Skitarii Void Clade:
.Equipped with las-cutters, void jets for manouver and possibly plasma weapons?

The Baksuryan Order, a cult of cannibalism to increase martial strength from the Pakistan area, is as canon to canon as it to us. It's theorized that seeds of them spread with the Great Crusade through the 73rd Expeditionary Fleet. 

 

  • The Carven ExterminationTime: Great Crusade, 821.M30. Location: Cethlen (inner edge of the Halo Stars) Notes: War Hounds versus rock monsters/xenos. The problem was the rock monsters could blend in with the natural rocks and no means was discovered to identify them. In the end, they destroyed the planet with cyclone missiles. Recommended Force: Not sure. This is a very early battle along the galactic edge. I'm honestly questioning FW's logic with this one. Still, I guess most non-Anti-Warp Legions would do.
  • The Purge of the Damirite EmpireTime: Great Crusade, at least one century before the Heresy. Location: Damire System/sub-sector (neighbors the Thramas sector) Notes: Resurrection cult was powerful enough to restore the entire 6-world empire each time the Imperium exterminated them. Force of Thousand Sons were forced to deploy to stop the respawning.  Recommended Force: Honestly, since Damire is placed in isolation, it might be simple enough to let the Sons hold onto this one.

Apparently, one of the first Imperial cults was the Cult of the Undying Emperor. Some of their early teachings/rituals were absorbed into the Lectitio Divinitatus. Also the historian here, despite his disagreements on the Great Lie, is a firm atheist. If we are using the same guy, I can only imagine what he must think of Alexandros.

We're using a whole heap of in-universe writers, for flavour and to explain away disparate authorial voices.

Readers Notes:

Mechanicum general:

.Common references made to the infosphere.
.Aquatically,a Titan is forced to reply on low density sonar bursts.
.Void shields are confimed to be triggered by excessive speeds.
.Skitarii armed with uranium carbines and volkites.

New Mechanicum:
.Synod of Sota Nul, emissary to the Warmaster from Kelbor Hal
.Eight Magi below her.
.Sota Nuk is merged with a daemon?
.They still worship the Omnissiah, and wish to use the power of the warp to overthrow the Chaos Gods.
.Use of ‘neuroslaves’ to hijack loyalist auxilia, created from modified implants used to connect Skitarii to the infosphere.

Any mention of the Mechanicum Parliament?
