It is the 817th year of the 41st Millenium
The Imperium of Man has launched a crusade to retake the lost worlds of the Jericho Reach, a far-flung sector of worlds thought lost to the Emperor’s Light. In the four decades since the beginning of the Achilus Crusade, the forces of the Imperium have won great victories and suffered crushing defeats. Now the Crusade forces are at crisis point, beset at all sides by Xenos, Heretics, and Daemons.
The fate of the Achilus Crusade is balanced on the edge between the Emperor’s Light and the Long Night of Chaos. One force can tip the balance decisively, ensuring the success of the Crusade or dooming it to crushing defeat.
That force is the Deathwatch.
Welcome to the Jericho Reach, Space Marines. Are you worthy to keep watch?
