+ + + DESTINATION: ALL REMAINING ASSETS OF THE SPACE WOLVES CHAPTER
+ + + DATE: 7.999.999.M41
+ + + TELEPATHIC DUCT: -UNKNOWN-

+ + + SUBJECT: FENRIS has survived. The Great Wolf and all 12 Great Companies have moved out to hunt down the traitors at CADIA. Hereby all loyal Sons of Fenris and the Wolf King are ordered to return to FENRIS immediately! Refusal unnacceptable.
+ + + THOUGHT: "Fenris endured the Storm! Fenris roars in defiance! Fenris calls for its sons!"
The Crimson Cyclops has returned and the deathsman's Axe has barely missed our neck...
Tainted Midgardia received the Emperor's Mercy, exterminated for the safety of all.
Frostheim is now nothing more than plains of bones, as wide as the eye can see.
Svellgard changed its face, what was once an ocean world, is now filled by mountains of glass.
Valdrmani is surrounded by vicious storms and ghosts, presumably, haunt its surface.
Fenris braced the storm, but our beautiful, harsh homeworld will need time to heal - and the scars will be forever visible.
The tribes of our origin have been thinned out, by demons and preachers.
Nature itself rose to fight the corruption at our sides, brave as any Fenrisian Warrior.
The Aett was infiltrated and sabotaged, but not broken or conquered and will stand, as it always has.
The Great Wolf and most of our brothers have moved on, towards the Cadian Gate, for our ancient enemies march for Terra.
Word has come that Cadia itself fell, but a single battle does not decide a War. There are more obstacles on their way to Terra.
Other reports say a loyal brother of Russ has returned, with hopeful prayers being uttered across the galaxy for more of the Emperor's Sons to return.
...and a new Crusade calls - and we want to be up to the challenge, don't we?
Only a fool would call this the Wolf Time, for the Einherjar and our King have not returned... yet.
...but only a fool, too, would deny that it draws nearer with every passing day. Fimbulvetr is coming!
And so we need to muster whatever we're able to, to prepare for War that's coming...
It's our duty and our birthright to return to the Aett and defend it during the Great Wolf's absence!
Sharpen your blades and clean your weapons, repair your armors and re-etch all blessings!
Fix every tank, dreadnought or battleship in your Company's Armory! Make haste!
Muster the Kaerls and train new Blood Claws - for the survivors of the Fenrisian Tribes are one of the sturdiest generations since the Allfather's coming!
Drink and brawl with your brothers or go out and hunt the traitors pouring from the Eye!
Retell the Sagas of Old and let the Skjalds know of your newest battles!
Return home, brothers, no matter where you've fought and for how long...
The Aett is home to all Wolves of the Rout and we shall share our mjod, maybe for the last time!
Orders and Rules
All units from Codex: Space Wolves, Champions of Fenris and Curse of the Wulfen.
All Space Wolves units from The Horus Heresy Book Seven: Inferno and The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Army List.
All units that are converted as Space Wolves from the Codex: Space Marines or Angels of Death
All units that are converted as Space Wolves for playing Kill Team, Shadow War: Armageddon, Epic, Battlefleet Gothic or other similiar sub-game systems.
Additionally, special conversions are allowed, IF:
- Identifiable Space Wolves (converted units from Codex: Space Marines or )
- Special Space Marine Units of your own design, personalized for your Companies' needs.
(Examples: Salvaged Vehicles of Codex Chapters, Long Fangs in Centurion Armor, etc. - Anything that looks to be part of our Chapter and could be useful in 8th Edition)
- All Primaris Space Marine Units (once released)
Units can be assembled and primed.
Models where painting has already begun, but hasn't been finished, can be pledged - but not for full points.
I would entrust it into your own hands to decide how many points you deem right for the rest of your work!
The validity of these entries fall under the judgement of the Wolf Lords (moderators).
For now, do not exceed 3000 points (7th Edition) for your first vow, as a rough guideline.
We will adapt to 8th Edition points cost, once released.
We will need your help to get them converted properly and frequently updated.
Every participant can only ever have ONE active vow.
A new vow can only pledged, after the last one has been fulfilled.
Vows should not exceed the 3000 points limit.
All vows and their completion must be proven with pictures.
You can post your vows on Monday, 29th of May and get to working then! So go and prepare them now! Start counting and taking pics!
The only deadline ALL participants have to abide by, is the end of the Event itself.
Brawls and Hardship
As is, the vow structure, is pretty open, straight forward and allows everyone to participate.
For all those who seek special challenges - either self-imposed or to challenge themselves and other brothers - there is the possibility of a special vow.
A Brawl or Hardship can be declared at any time, but only one per participant (until it is fulfilled/over). - But you can take part in all Brawls, you feel able to.
You want to challenge others to complete as many Thunderwolf Cavalry as possible over the course of the Event?
You want to challenge your rival to see who can complete his Leman Russ until a given date? And for both to be judged by the rest of us?
You want to impose a deadline upon your own vow, to see if you can finish it in a month's time?
But know that everyone else is watching you, as witness to your glory or failure.
Success and the survival of our Chapter and Hearthworld is our reward!
...no, not really.
Rewarding Banners, for various achievements, will be presented and awarded in time!
If you want to commit some, you can approach me, dantay_vx or Wolf Lord Kieran!
29. May (Monday) to 30. September (Saturday)
Gather round for the Valdrmót, brothers!
