The surface of Phonicas Prime writhes with the ravages of war; columns of armour now choke the arterials as the forces vie for strategic positions. The atmosphere is starting to darken with the vapours of death and munitions. Large scale engagements are taking place continuously in the plains and forests of the planet, for nothing more than the ability to continue moving their armies forward. The three primary targets of the invading forces have become maelstroms of conflict. Childarm Rim has been secured by the Templars of the Kildrech Crusade, completely annihilating the defending Astartes and fighting off attempts by Xenos and Daemons alike to gain a foothold.
Whilst the Templars also attempted to secure Hive 17 and the Tyril Mining Complex, they were not as successful. The Angels Radiant, supported by the Wolves of Fenris, retook the strategic entrances of the Hive from an early Templar invasion and then defended additional attacks by a substantial Chaos force. The hive took substantial damage but remains standing.
However the same cannot be said for the Mining Complex, its outer facilities have been utterly devastated by an overwhelming Chaos forces, their fell Astartes punching deep into the heart of the complex without remorse.
Although the wars still rage for control of these locations, each force have begun sending in squads to secure the beacons which have summoned them here. Be them extraction forces or kill teams, each force is now racing for the dozens of manifestations scattered throughout the dense urban zones.
The entity has now proven that it is somewhat aware of the situation, I have confirmed reports of these Beacons defending themselves against attempts to execute them and willingly seeking sanctuary amongst the rebellious force. More alarmingly there have been detonations of what can only be described as Psychic energy throughout the three locations, these explosions potent enough to level hab zones.
