Vast numbers of Loyalist lives were lost, vaporised by the subterranean detonation of horrifying weapons intended for void warfare, cut down with the hidden blades of those that stood beside them or poisoned by tainted atmosphere recyclers. Such was the scale of bloodshed, it sent waves through the Empyrean itself and stirred the dark powers that dwelled there.
