History

Pre-Compliance

One the latter planets to be colonised, after the formation of the Baylonian Conclave, Uruq was a well planned and structured world. Its Hives established at optimum distances from resources and each other to allow for maximum growth and to avoid the majority of negative effects from the hostile environment. Never having a comfortable atmosphere to start with the rapid production and population of the dozens of hives resulted in a significant degradation of the worlds ecosystem and left its air slightly toxic but not enough that the hive filtration systems couldn't filter the hazardous gases out.

Like millions of other Hive worlds in the Imperium, Uruq became a desolate wasteland with the Hives sucking the lifeblood out of the planet and keeping its inhabitants, relatively, safe and somewhat healthy. Those outside of the walls or in poorer, less maintained, sections of the Hives became contaminated with the toxins and minor mutations spread rampantly through those populations. All of these negatives were well within the Synods calculated margin of acceptability, however, and so the planet continued its miserable existence, spitting out rudimentary products which the more advanced forge worlds didnt want to waste resources on making.


Compliance

Being one of the lesser worlds of the system, Uruq was quickly yielded to the Imperial Governor during the Compliance negotiations, having very little worth to the Synod and Mars now that the System and its planets would be receiving greater Imperial support in the way of trade and requisition. The people of the world however were largely unaware of their change in ownership and cared little even if they did, their world continued its repetitious life of birth, work and death.

Post Compliance

Even before the shocking actions of Istvaan filtered through to the Australis Ultima Sector, the situation in the Oteal System had degenerated to dangerous levels. Rumours of military build ups on the Kazitian loyal planets persisted along with the myth that Dur-Kazit was being secretly rebuilt, however without any evidence the systems Governor could take no direct action against the planets as they were sworn to the Red Planet and owed him no allegiance.

With the onset of civil war and the Fabricator General openly siding with Horus, the Kazitian Synod seized the opportunity and declared independence of the Imperium, reforming the Baylonian Conclave and began mobilising its military. Desperately outgunned the Governor immediately issued a recall to all Imperial forces in the System and requested aid form the Sub-Sector Governor in Centrumeh Gate.

Before the Kazitian forces were able to fully muster, a small armada translated into the system, but not in response to the Governor’s call for aid. It was a splinter element of a fleet loyal to the Warmaster on its way to the Trugoy System to prosecute another war of eradication against the Loyalists. Unsure of the situation and unwilling to engage two potential enemies the Kazitian navy maintained a defensive posture while attempts to communicate with the new player were sent.

Despairing at now having to face two potential hostile forces, the Imperial presence in the system began to prepare for the worst and readied themselves for invasion. Hope blossomed momentarily when a signal from the VIIth was received, confirming that they were en route and less than two days out, this message however was followed quickly by the Sub-Sector wide broadcast from the Imperium, instructing all Loyal fleets to the Trugoy System.
