Global Heresy

This location was the target of the Phase 1 Global Heresy campaign.

Games played wanting to represent this location were played on smaller tables or even Zone Mortalis, to portray fights over the small floating islands or the limited number of new Imperial stations being deployed to monitor the planet

Oligos is a gas planet with an Aqua hue. Instead of land masses its atmosphere is choked with floating islands of dark green vegetation. These Islands vary in size from chunks the size of a shuttle to massive pieces the size of a small country.
On these islands dwell all manner of avian creatures. An entire eco system of insects, herbivores, predators and scavengers flit between the islands in search of food. The largest of these is the Oligos Pterodactyl. It is these islands, and the nutrient rich plant growth on them that the scouting parties of the original Expeditionary Fleet identified as a valuable resource.


Population

No known sentient inhabitants.


History

When the plant masses of Oligos were discovered, their potential for food was immediately apparent and samples were brought back to Kaloran for further study. Although lacking in taste, the dark green gruel refined from the rubbery growths was rich in essential nutrients and much superior to corpse starch rations for morale. It also kept for ages and was easy to store and transport.

It was only after a more thorough examination revealed it was not a natural phenomenon. Upon close scrutiny of the plants structure it appeared to have been bio engineered, with the right amount of nutrients and light the plant could grow exponentially until it grew too heavy to support its mass. Then it would break apart under its own weight into smaller islands and the process would continue. Someone, or something, had gathered all these animals and plants together to make an eco system to sustain the islands.

Quite who was responsible is still a matter of debate amongst magos biologis stationed on Kaloran. But until a full expedition can be sent, the answers will remain a mystery.
