The Saga of Njal: Vlka Fenryka hunt again
Is his dream Stormcaller could see the outline, dark, round and distant. There was something about this planet that caught his eye. No wait! It was not a planet at all but a shadow where a planet should be. This shadow was a glimpse of the future, what could be or what will be he could not tell, only that he must go there. As the fleet dropped out of warp close the the edge of the system Njal felt uneasy. It was like something pressing on his mind adding weight to his already troubled thoughts. Dark things were approaching and he felt like the fate of this system was in the balance. Although on the fringes of Imperial space and in the path of a Tyranid splinter fleet this system held a huge deposit of raw materials that could greatly aid the Imperial warmachine in this sector. War does not come cheap and no one make war like the Imperium. Soon they would make planetfall on the 4th planet in the system, there was something there, something Njal could not see directly but it flitted in and of the corner of his vision. He must know what it is and if it can help the Wolves keep this part of Space in Imperial hands. He would send out a scouting party to locate whatever it was calling to him before committing a larger force to secure the planet. There were a few settlements on the hololith display, pre Dark Age settlements judging by the size and the level of technology. While not a military threat sometimes Chaos would use these colonies that still clung to the old ways as a gateway, they would have to be dealt with either by Priest or by Bolter. The Skalds will sing of this of that he is sure. Now the only thing he can do is make sure they sing of victory and honour, not defeat and failure. The Saga begins. . . . . .
