The exact date is lost in time. The few remaining pieces, indicate action during the “War of the Beast”. Contrary to it, the Chapter was officially founded in the aftermath of this disastrous war, as a Crusader Chapter, designated "Chapter 203" until a name was chosen.
They were indeed of the 4th Founding, but with a skeleton crew of surviving Astartes from this time becoming the rebuilt Chapter's officers. Which brought their remaining belongings in the newly founded Chapter, leading to pieces of history somewhat alien to them.
They are heirs to the proud bloodline of Dorn. They patrol like their forerunners in Imperial space. During there beginning time, they fought many battles against the remnants of the Orks, liberating worlds and bring them back under Imperial rule.
In remiss of their unknown origins, they took a great deal of work to ensure an ongoing chronicle of their history, a tradition that remains until today. Despite their best efforts, many records were lost over time, due to war, destruction, or simple failures.
They were gifted an old Ramilies star fort as a monastery, equipped with a Dark Age of Technology generator, which grants enough power and function over millennia with no need of maintenance.
Battle along the Rhine - Months of Mud and Blood - Reborn
In high morale and feverish to burn their name into Imperial history, they seek battle after battle against the Orks.
The Agra Mundi Star System, which was spared in the “War of the Beast”,was now a nearly invaluably asset to supply the neighboring systems with enough food. Due a immense lack of armed forces and ongoing fighting, the World was reinforced with second-string Imperial Guard regiments and outdated and green Navy fleets.
Unable to cope with increasing Ork raids, they cried for help. The first to arrive were the 203rd Astartes Chapter. In a risky attack, they retook the orbital docks, but soon it should be a failure, with more resistance and a lack of supplies, the Astartes were soon in Close Combat. After retreating from battle, the fleet destroyed the docks, preventing the Orks from using it. Due to their star fort, they managed to hold superiority in the Void, but were unable to fully intercept all aerospace craft before the latter made planetfall.
Soon a bloody war on the ground was waged, the once-mobile Astartes now forced to engage in trench warfare along the huge River Rhine. Under huge losses they managed to stop the invasion, and hold out until reinforcements arrived.
During this brutal attrition Warfare (a new Experience for them), many Vehicles broke down, only few would be see service again. In dire need of mobile fire support, the Tech Marines, were tasked with modify there remaining vehicles with the Stocks form the Imperial Army's Vehicles. Leading towards there till today used “Rhino Basilisk Artillery Unit”, and many other merged designs. Beside there crude image, this vehicles proved there worth many times.
In the time the moral was on its down point, a young woman rise through the ranks, soon command the entire theater, with a skill and understanding, which should be impossible for a Woman in this Age.
Soon she was the precious 11th Saint, highly respected by everyone. The Astartes saw in here, a piece of there Emperor, to aid them during these Dark Times. The true identity of here are a mystery, together why she was dubbed 11th Saint.
Little is known what happened to here after finally reinforcement arrived. She simply vanished. Only leaving a gift for here Knights, the Knowledge about a new Doctrine, of carefully management of Human Resources, Supply's and that a swift victory is fine and good, but in the End, still remaining stand, is Victory too.
After the Siege lift, they renamed to Knights of the Rhine, coloured there Power Armour's in a Mud Green with Orange Accents. The Green to symbolize the mud, where they were forged new, the Orange to honour the Artillery which were a crucial factor to there survive.
The Chapter was down to about 350 brothers. To cope with the loses, they varied the Size of each Company to 48 instead of 100 which the Codex suggest. The Rankings and Markings remain the same as the Codex offer.
As Act of Honour to the fallen and the brave Population, they build a small Keep there, to held watch and recruit new Aspirants. The battle proven people, make a good ground for new Astartes, ongoing skirmishes against Tribal Orcs, ensure that they held there sharp edge.
Culling of Delta IV - Horror of Darkness
During the Moiare Catechism, the KotR were called to accompany a Mechanicus Disciplinary Force, to bring back the Medium Forge World Delta IV, to the Cult Mechanicus.
The initial Operation Phase was success full, with Void Superiority, the combined Forces make Planet Fall to capture Key Industry and Positions. The Nightmare was to begin after the first ground battles, beside the regular Mechanicus Troops, more and more bizarre and deadly Creatures join the Ranks.
With this newcomers, a shift in the Enemy's tactics, should be fatal for the Attackers. They prioritize the elimination of Officers, Apothecary and Tech Marines along with the equivalent of the Mechanicus Ranks.
They were quick in reaction of it, but the losses remain dire. Nearly Half of the Front Officers were dead, when they quickly repainted the Sings of rank.
Both Commanders agree that the World is lost, in desperate Battles they were able to secure few STC Prints and some Industry. After the evacuation, they conduct Exterminatus on it.
After the conclusion, the Adepts honored the Service of the KotR, grant them few STC Prints along with Industry, to refill there losses. This eased a bit the Relations, after the ongoing and unsanctioned modification of the Rhino Chassis.
The stroll form the Codex, remain after this Battle, all Astartes wear the same Colour on the Field. Never again they should lose so easy valuable Officers.
Destruction of Sigma Horas - Age of Apostasy
During the Religious War which tore the Empire apart, they sided with the Administratum to ensure stability. Which lead to tense Relations with the Church.
Following a Distress Call, they arrived over the Shrine World Sigma Horas, a Rich and Mighty World, under control of the Church directly.
Heretic Uprisings in the largest Hive City, could no longer dealt alone with local Troops. Beside tense Relations, they took direct the fight inside the City's Walls. After 3 Days of brutal Close Combat Action, they lay siege toward the former Governor Castle.
Unable to gain a foothold, the Terminator Battalions were deployed, which cleansed the Corruption and the Leaders of the Heretics. Which revel to the Victorious Astartes, that they were only the tip of the plague, there Battle meaningless, there Victory only a short flame in the laughter of the Dark Gods.
True to these Words, uprisings and demonic incursions took place everywhere, quickly devouring the entire World. Unable and unwilling to expense there precious Resources, the KotR quickly salvaged which would be useful, returning to there Fleet in the Orbit.
The fleet spread out and prepare a Exterminatus, the World already doomed, where to denied the Arch Enemy. This included the destruction of every Ship and Shuttle which fled from the planet. Including the Arch Bishop’s personal Shuttle.
A Act which leave a grim mark on there relations.
There Gene-Seed is stable and pure, nothing less to await from the proud line of Rogal Dorns Sons. With a high Compatibly and low Death Rate by Implantation.
But due unknown reasons, they work with a full set of Astartes Organs, no one is missing and all operate as they intended. This was a mystery for the first Apothecary, even provided with Data of the Gene-Seed form the Imperial Fists, they didn't found any foreign string inside it.
Only knowing through a rumour, Rogal Dorn, refused during the Great Crusade, apparently the influx of pure Gene-Seed form Terra. Following this lead, they conduct, the Adeptus Mechanicus has rediscovered this Seed and use it to ensure enough Chapters for the 4th founding. Regardless of the former Edict. A better explanation wasn’t found.
This Information is highly classified within the Chapter, only known to few select Individuals. To the outside, they propagate it is Imperial Fists Gene Seed, and they are there proud successors.
But even its nothing one see, the other Sons of Dorn, feel something is off. Remove them forever a step from there blood brethren.
They have several Banks of Gene Seed spread around in there Chapter, to ensure no one is able to cripple them by take out one of them.
Not unusually among the Ranks of the Adeptus Astartes, they refer to the Emperor not as God, but as the highest pinnacle of Humanity. As a proud Ideal, they wish to come after.
With this, they embrace his former Edict of the “Imperial Truth”, acknowledge that things exist, that shouldn't, but they still see in it the Way, the Empire should choose. Instead of embarking the Teachings of the Church, degenerate the Humans to blind believers, free of own thinking.
Therefore the have a uneasy truce with the Church as whole, but minor conflicts during prolonged Campaigns happen.
To unknown Reasons, they no longer posses a Scriptorium, when they loss it, they never bothered with rebuild it. They aren’t know to enforce the ancient Edict of Nikea or to forfeit battle alongside Psykers.
Contrary to it, they due maintain a culture of remember towards the 11th saint, who aided them due the Rhine Siege. She got on each Ship a small Shrine. Her teachings a essential part of the Chapters Culture.
After there early disastrous battle on Rhine, they had to over think there Combat Doctrine, which forged over the Time there Way of Battle. The Codex was not longer seen as holy text, rather as a useful book about War and Organization at whole.
As a space born Chapter, they still maintain a unusually high number of Ships. This give them more options during operations. They use there smaller vessels for blockade runs to isolated Groups, maintain there Strength till they are able to assist direct with Ground Groups.
In Void Battle, they prefer, to strike first with brute force, later deal with the remnants of it, with Cruisers Size Vessels in more mobile Battles.
On the Ground they prefer mobile Warfare, with Artillery Support and/or Air Craft. With Mechanized Infantry and Tank Squadrons, they outmanoeuvre the Enemy and encircle them. Crushing the pockets with Artillery Barrages/ Airstrikes and Heavy Infantry Strikes.
If a mobile Battle is not possible, due a Key Position, they dig a “mess” of trenches and add fortifications to them. They excel in this, like there progenitors. With enough time and manpower, the Positions are very hard to crack, and took usually a high toll on the attackers.
It isn’t a uncommon sight, when Astartes deploy along Astra Millitarum trenches and reorganize them. Sometimes even took direct Command over the Front Troops.
Unlikely other Chapters, they don’t seek deceiving Battles. They prefer to fight under there own rules. When necessary a retreat is a valid option.
Overall is the Concept of Logistic Attrition and preservation of Human Resources, with minimal supply use, eliminate the most possible number of enemies. Let the enemy bleed him out and crushing him when possible. Avoid fighting under the conditions dictated by the Enemy.
The Motto is: Remain standing is all. When we didn't lose, the enemy neither achieved a complete Victory. When we avoid Annihilation, we can rebuild our strength and strike back.
The Chapter drifted over the time of its diligent service, away from the strict Codex Organization. Today they are formed as following:
3 Marescalcus Capitel, each consist of 48 Astartes, 144 in Total, plus additional Hospitarii (Apothecary) and Trappearii (Tech Marine) to maintain Flesh and Steel, each is Part of a War Capitel,yet independent, to provide them with there Strength and Wisdom, fully equipped with Terminator Armour
3 War Capitel, each consist of 240 Astartes, plus additional Hospitarii and Trappearii to maintain Flesh and Steel during Crusades
1 Void Capitel, consist of 96 Astartes, plus additional Hospitarii and Trappearii, usually operate outside of the Imperial Borders with Rouge Traders on the Search of Archeotec
1 Thesaurarii Capitel, consist of 96 Astartes, plus additional Hospitarii and Trappearii,
they usually circle between the Capitels which operate in Crusades or Campaigns, deliver new supply’s and lend forges to refit the Capitel as much as possible, when Capacity's are free they lend them to other Factions
Further each Capitel, have a Stratetigum Council, which sort combat data and propose following Actions. Usually its personal boost mostly of Serfs with additional Servitors for data processing, a few revered found there a new place.
Each War Capitel consist of 1 Battle Barge, 3 Strike Cruisers and additional Escort and Forge Ships.
The Thesaurarii Capitel, use a early draft of a Assault Barge and 2 Vanguard Strike Cruisers and additional Escorts along with Freighters and Forge Ships.
In set Intervals the Capitel’s change the duty of protecting the Star Fort, usually between 100-250 Years.
The Void Capitel, use as Battle Barge a heavy modified Exorcist Class Grand Cruiser.
Marescalcus = 1st Company
Thesaurarii = management of Finance in Middle Age, today a more Logistic Role
High master = Chapter Master
High Guard = Honour Guard (32 Astartes)
Chapter Marshall’s = 1st Captains
Capitel Marshall = CaptainCapitel Guard = Honour Guard (12 Astartes)
Lance Leader = Troop Leader
Knight Commandeer = Ship Captain
Komtur = Tasked with operating a Chapter Keep or Holding
Revered Wounded/ Retreated = Marines who got severely wounded or lost entire Lance, retreat to teach the New Recruits or join other Parts of the Chapters Structure
Sword Master = Honour Rank for the few Masters of Swords
Hospitarii = Apothecary
Trappearii = Tech Marine
Magnus Hospitarii = Master of Apothecary
Magnus Trappearii = Master of Forge
Magnus Commandeur = Master of the Fleet
The Magnus Ranks and there lower Equivalent (only to bring in additional Information) form the Supreme Convent, to discuss with the High Master, Chapter- and Capitel Marshall and Capitel Lieutenant, the course of action. They alone elect new Capitel Marshall's and the Chapter Marshall.
Founded with the Ideals of the old Knight Brotherhoods of Terra, many events have shaped them over the course of there Service. There currently used description of ranks, are implement from there home worlds knight chapters.
In the fight against the Foes of Humanity, the Goal is the Way,mercy is for the weak. Survival of Humanity is the Goal. Any means to remain standing after the Battle, are sufficient.
Due there constant Warfare, they soon started to reuse broken Equipment from the Battlefield, regardless of the old owner. This Behaviour, was further develop after choosing a Home world. The same applies to Void Ships, whenever they successfully capture one, they usually dint give it back. Expect the Situation demand it.
In there spare free time, many brothers choose to work on Stone Blocks, mostly carving it. Reserved to fellow Brothers and the Household Artificers, they carve the Sword Hand Bones of the fallen.
Few choose to use there time to further train there swordsmanship, aspire to reach the honored rank of Sword Master. Manly these few introduce the Sword Play to new recruits.
On Battlefields, they sometime reinforce the Medics and Pioneers of the Guard, or instruct them in proper trench digging and fortification build. To ensure a proper Morale and fighting Strength.
Due the recruitment out of the Void Ships Crews, the Chapters Hospitarii and Trappearii, treat the Crews when no other important tasks are currently need to tend. In addition to it, Chapter Serfs, help out too, sometimes encouraged to do it, running a Basic Administration and Welfare on there Spare Time. This efforts lead to highly disciplined and loyal Crews. Which perform diligent there duty.
Once started as necessary mean, it evolved in a tradition. To honour there ancestral Knight Brothers, which serve as Fighting Force and Caretaker for the common people.
The personal Heraldry consist of 3 Parts, the first is the Symbol of the Lance in which they were raised, second the Chapter Symbol (after joining the Chapter fully), third a own Symbol of choice (after reaching Rank of Knight), some additional signs could be added as reward for his Service or Failure. Each Heraldry tell a tale of his service. A less known function behind it, is the Identification of the brother, each Symbol tell a specific Story, which is recorded, over the Millenniums few “Brothers” were unable to tell the true story.
If a Marine choose to join the Revered, he got a 4th Part, which describe his new Duty.
The Codex of the Chapter, form a bound between the Recruits of the several Capitel, the bulk of the Recruits undergo there training on Rhine and later reinforce the returned Capitel Forces. It is similar to the “Infantry Handbook”, but more realistic and hold the Chapters Culture Pillars.
Further, each Name and personal Heraldic got cut into large blocks of black stone (from there Homeworld), to remember them, with Date of Service start and end.
In the brief period’s of Peace and meetings of Chapter Capitel’s, they exchange there Knowledge and Personal. Further they hold over the course of several Months up to a Year, ongoing Tournaments to test the strength and skill of the Astartes and Serfs.
The Chapter go for Quantity over Quality, unlike most other Chapters. The primary Indication is the subject is healthy and has no grave Illness or mutation. They tend to recruit whenever possible, a trait which helped them several times to replace grave Casualties.
They don’t exclusive use a single Recruitment pool, they prefer to gain disperse Recruits. The “bulk” are from Rhine and Agra Mundi, furthermore the Capitels, gain there Recruits form the Crew of the Void ships or rescued Populations, sometimes as Payment for enforced Tithes.
The few Chapter Keeps, draw a small tithe from the local population, which later got transported to Rhine for further Training.
Usually the Recruits are between 5-7 Years old, regardless of there Gender. Boys and Girls, go together through there new Life as Chapter Servants and further Novices.
To ensure that only the toughest and best make it into the new Lances, training is brutal and quickly weeds out the weak and unworthy, for fear and weakness are not tolerated. The ones, which survive the initial Training, got additional Tests, to determine there new Home.
Each remaining Recruit, is assigned to a Lance, based on there Results, a Lance is usually composed of 12 Girls and Boys. Each got her name, based of a ancient Terran Star Picture, which is also the later Lance Symbol. Each of them, is trained by a Veteran Chapter Serf or several overseen by a Revered Brother.
The minds and characters of the young prospective Aspirants or Chapter Serfs, are purposefully broken and remade stronger, just as their bodies are trained to withstand hardship and endure suffering that would kill other men -- a task already begun by the mere fact of Choosing by the Chapter.
The Hospitarii follow the Rituals and Suggestions of Implants all most to the letter. Only noticeable difference, is the absolute minimum of the suggested Hypnotic Therapy's. Along with less Rituals and more professional spirit.
The chapter, has extensive Training Facility on Rhine, were the bulk of Recruits got there Training. In addition to it, each Capitel train replacements on there own jurisdiction, but follow the same Guidelines as the others.
Before the male Aspirants join the Ranks of the Novices, a important festival is held, called “Feast of Accession”, each male Recruit (regardless if he join the Astartes or the Serfs), choose a fellow girl as bride. Usually they choose in there own Lance, but it is not a Rule.
After this Ceremony, the new Novices, spend a example of there Sperms, for further use after there Accession.
The girls, remain on the Side of there chosen, forming under the Serfs Family, and the Novices the Role as Caretaker for the Needs of them. But the Girls, are not reduced to mere house sitters, they serve as there male counterparts too.
Each remaining Recruit, got along with his Ascend in the Chapter an New Second Name, they got the name of the Place they got born or recruited is first unknown. To avoid identically Names, they get sometimes Alterations of it or simply the Name of a Important Place or Good from there Home.
After several Centuries, the Chapter decided to establish a permanent Base. Located in the Northern Border Triangle of Solar, Obscurus and Pacificus. They settle down somewhere in the M36.
Covered behind dense Asteroid Fields and Stellar Dust, lay a cold and unfriendly World, which held a small population of Humans. With the lack of Major Stable Warp Routes and valuable Resources, this Area of Space got not much attention form the Empire. In any means a remote region of the sector.
First discovered during the Dark Age of Technology, the Barren World, was deemed worthy of Terra Forming to hold a Colony. The exact reasons, which led to this Conclusion is long lost.
Reconstructed of the few remaining logs and tales of the population, they undertook great Constructions for this task. Several Dozens Habitats were build in a stable Orbit, holding Shipyards, Fabrics and Quarters for the Colonists. From the Size of small Stations to that of Star Forts.
On the Surface they Constructed a Fortress like City, to hold the Terra Form Equipment along with its Staff, additional Silos to hold necessary Resources. Located on the Coldest Region in the Northern Continent.
During the process, the Rebellion of the “Iron Man” Occurred, leading to the stop of Resources Freighters. The few who still arrived, hold tales of Horror. In dire need of the Planet. The scientist determined to achieve with the remaining resources a habitable world. In the end, they didn’t fail this task, but only the most basic Results were possible.
The main continent have few areas, which allow agriculture, the largest areas, under firm control of the largest factions. Constant under challenge of rising factions an old rivals.
The sub continent, created as Oxygen pool, is covered in dense jungle, home to a hostile flora, very few tribes managed to survive there.
Around the tow continents, are several islands, mostly uninhabited form humans.
He is roughly shaped like a half moon, the temperature is barely over 15°C in the summer, in the winter it go down -15°C. The outer fringes are flat, towards the Center and Northern Part, the terrain got Fjord like.
In the Icy Northern Fjords, lay the ancient Fortress City, now home to the Chapter. The entire region is off limit, no one how trespass ever return.
The Sub Continent:
Not many is known, only that the shape is like a fist, covered in dense jungle. With deadly flora and many forms of illness.
The Age of Technology is long gone. Only Fragments have survived the time, each considered Holy and is not replaceable. The few Holders are considered the most powerful and important Pillars of the current Society.
The Population consist of 3 major Factions, the Star Dweller, Knight Orders and Free City's. Each is in need of at least one Technology of the other. Which lead to a somewhere uneasy Peace, beside ongoing border conflict’s.
A ancient Contract, forbid direct assaults and sabotage of the Technology Place’s and Holders. A break of it, lead to dire consequences, usually the utter Destruction of the Foes.
The overall Technology Level is in the Late Middle-age, only Exception are advanced Filter Systems for Water, Bikes and several low Tech Farming Tools and Vehicles, the Star Dweller exclusive maintain primitive Shuttles.
The Star Dweller hold the Filter Systems, the Knight Orders the Bike Technology along with Farming Vehicles, the Free Cities hold several Low Tech Food Seeds and Alloy’s.
They were among the first who utilized fully Primaris Formations to reinforce there depleted Troops. During the early Indominus Crusade, they used Astartes from every available gene line to gain new Knowledge.
Later they integrated few foreign Astartes, after they gain the modified Process from Crawl.
Some frictions were present, but with ongoing fighting and the proof of the Primaris Marines, they vanished mostly. Lead to a strong bound between First Born and Second Born.
In the following Council after the End of the Indominus Crusade, the Chapter Superiors decided, to implant the Primaris seed, into every Aspirant form now on. The Hospitarii are tasked with it, additional they should conduct the Rubicon process on few Brothers, which brought shame over them. They can earn forgiveness, for sacrifice themselves to the Higher Need of the Chapter.
When the process is deemed acceptable, the entire Chapter should go through this too.
One of the the most important Requirements, they want from there War gear, is reliability. It need to function in every Situation and Environment. Interchange of Parts are too important for them, which lead over the time to unique Designs. Complicate to maintain Gear, like Plasma Weapons and Lad Raider’s faded out after that decision.
After the early loss of there more advanced Gear, they never bothered with fully replacing them. Instead embracing other Designs. Today they have a wide array of Rhino Variants and typical Astra Millitarum Vehicles. The most “famous” are the Rhine Artillery Unit, there primary Combat Vehicle.
As Power Armour they primarily use the Mark VI Model, later improvements are integrated. The typical Muzzle Helmet, is replaced with a Design closer to Mark III Helmet. The smoother Movement and bit smaller Proportions, proved there Worth in the closed Space of Vehicles, Ships and harsh Condition's in trenches and the No men land.
To provide better Protection for Breach Troops, each Capitel maintain several Mark III Iron Armour’s. They produce new of these, usually they only replace losses. Unable to equip the whole Chapter, they re- engineered Boarding Shields, without Shield Generators, but improved Design and Alloys.
To deliver there huge Number of Vehicles, they maintain a rather large Number of Thunderhawks Variants, which double as Supporting Aircraft.
To gain enough Supplies, they fled Battlefields, a Act, which give them a Reputation of Ass Birds.
They maintain a rather Large Fleet, with few Battle Barges and Several Cruiser Vessels, mostly Lunar Class Ships. There Design was modified over the Millenias, removed unnecessary Parts and replaced complicated Systems with more common ones. Leading to sleeker Variants, which are interchangeably, damaged and destroyed Ships are easy to merge.
Adeptus Administratum -
During M36, they formally allied themselves, the Chapter deemed the increasing power of the Church as concerning. They act sometimes as Enforcing Force for the Imperial Tithe, with usually overwhelming success. As payment, they are allowed to claim a small portion of the Tithe, usually Supply's and new Crew Men for there Ships.
During the later Civil War, they remain loyal, they avoid larger Engagements with the Church. But crushed there Forces merciless when they expand in the Space they hold Watch over.
Later they expand these Relations to the Munitorum, function as delivery and escort Force in prolonged Campaigns.
Adeptus Mechanicus -
Bound through ancient oaths, they have a delicate Relation. The ongoing modify of Vehicles are a constant point of Anger.
But they hardly accept it, to important the few STC Sheets, recovered from the Outer Border together with the Rouge Trader Dynasty “Nebukadnezzar”. These diligent service, sometimes accompanied by Exploration Fleets, further eased Relations
The relations to the Sons of Medusa, are currently unknown, the Reaction could be hard.
Death Watch -
They are among the Chapters, which provide a steady influx of Recruits, mostly not Veterans, but fresh Astartes which survived there First Battles and remain the only remaining of its Unit or deemed not team able.
Around 2/3 of the provide Astartes are lost for the Chapter in one or another form. Most die in battles, other choose to remain in the Death Watch after a last Chapter Visit.
The few returned, bring back valuable Knowledge, even the few they are allowed to share is crucial. The KotR in operated many Tactics, the agile Kill Teams and Hesh Bolters as example.
Adeptus Ministorum -
Both sides tolerate each other hardly, not forgetting what happened during the AoA, and the adhere to the Imperial Truth strain it further.
Both sides hold a truce, only small engagements from time to time.
Ordo Xenos -
The Ordo, used the Chapter several times as Force, against growing Waaghs!, the expertise well known against the Orks.
As Exchange for ongoing services, which sometimes are costly, they put a protective Hand over them, well known the Situation between them and the Church. A good Situation to gain Forces whenever necessary.
Codex Chapters -
Its a cold and bitter Relation. The most are unforgiving against breaks, to the Holy Codex. They usually avoid a engagement when Codex Chapters are present. Not to strain there Patience, over the point.
Sons of Medusa -
The KotR, have some Agreements, mostly they deliver them Wracks of Heavy Vehicles and other Equipment which they didn’t utilize. In Exchange for it, they gain Cybots and Spare Parts for Vehicles and Armour, they can’t produce in necessary amounts currently.
Black Templar -
They have with several Crusades relations, both sides prefer CQC and don’t use Psykers. They fought alongside many times. They got surprisingly good relations, for Chapters which Believes couldn't be more different.
Rouge Trader Dynasty “Nebukadnezzar” -
A rather old and long time small Dynasty. They gained Wealth and Influence after the Civil War M36. Little is known how they exactly grow to outsiders. Truth is, they offered the Chapter the Coordinate of there later Home world. Alongside the influx of dire needed Supply’s.
But soon rumors, told that there Expeditions in the Outer Border Regions, are accompanied by Astartes regularly. Rather uncommon in the Empire. After few failures at there Expeditions, they brought a ancient piece of Archo Tec back. Which was paid with a enormous sum of Credits from the Adeptus Mechanicus.
Which they use to maintain there wealth and to obtain various Supply’s, normal not available for Astartes. Mostly Astra Militarum Vehicles and Reserve Fleet Vessels for both the Traders and Chapter Fleet.
Today they hold Business Relations with the Adeptus Mechanicus, which accompany them sometimes in the outer Regions. Even a scratch of Archo Tech, is a holy grail for them.
