A Council at Nikea

In the 30th Millenium the Emperor of Mankind has triumphantly led the Great Crusade from Terra out across the galaxy, bringing former human colonies into compliance with the new order. Along the way he has recovered his 18 children, the genetically engineered Primarchs, to lead the Space Marine Legions in the Crusade Fleets. It is a new start for humanity.

However, sibling rivalry and violent differences of opinion on a number of subjects have led to growing factions and rifts between the Primarchs. Their Legions, as ever, follow where their geneparents lead and the Imperial Army regiments are infected by association. In an attempt to bring his family back together, the Emperor has summoned them all to the planet of Nikea, to discuss and settle the various divisive topics. In addition, he plans to bestow the title of Warmaster on the one Primarch who will lead the Crusade after this, because the Emperor is going to return to Terra for the first time in decades, if not centuries.

Information for Players:A Council at Nikea is set in a slightly different timeline from the published Horus Heresy material, mainly to allow the inclusion of many of the triggers for the betrayal into the one event. To maintain elements of secrecy and surprise, the loyalty (or otherwise) of the Primarchs will be determined randomly and secretly at the start of the game. Likewise, to represent his inscrutable planning, the Emperor's decision making will have a certain random element added on top of the opinions of his Primarchs.

In this game you will be given the chance to play one of the larger-than-life figures from the history of Warhammer 40,000. Luckily, everyone will be playing 9' tall gods of war, so there is not a need to try to represent the physical proportions of the characters.

It is expected that the players will be familiar with the setting and the background of their characters. I will try to assign the characters based on player preference, but not everyone can (or wants to) be Horus.
