Reclaim Lycurgos For the Emperor!
The courageous men and women of the Imperial Guard stand tall against the threats to mankind. In No Surrender, an adventure supplement for Only War, guardsmen serving in the Spinward Front must face the secessionist traitors, the Severan Dominate, whose forces have taken over the Lycurgos star fort, and are using it as a base for their treacherous deeds. In No Surrender, an expanded, three part adventure, you and your unit of guardsmen must work to reclaim this star fort for the Emperor! Lead Developer Tim Flanders previews the dangers that await in No Surrender!
A Word From the Developer
No Surrender is the first Only War supplement I have had the pleasure of working on and it was quite a blast. It was fun getting into the headspace of the Imperial Guard, getting my mental boots on the ground and standing imaginary shoulder to imaginary shoulder with the men and women of the Imperial Guard. But No Surrender is not your typical engagement for the Imperial Guard.
The setting for this campaign is the Lycurgos star fort, a massive orbital battle station controlled by the Severan Dominate that hangs in the void above a planet of vital importance to the traitor’s war effort. In order to take the planet below, the Imperial Guard must first eliminate the threat of the star fort. A station of such ancient power is far too valuable to the war effort to simply be obliterated by naval bombardment. As such, it falls to the Imperial Guard to assault the station itself, to take it back from the inside out.
This, of course, is no easy task, especially for the men and women fighting and dying to secure a landing zone for the bulk of the Imperial Guard forces; the players will know, first hand just how difficult a task this really is, as they are on the first waves! Once the landing is secure, the Imperial Guard must root out the entrenched forces of the Severan Dominate.
As they push deeper into the star fort, they face dangers in every form and on every front and they may just find something they never expected.
No Surrender contains all the elements of siege, assault, landing, and guerrilla warfare that characterizes the great war epics of film and literature, but all set firmly in the grim, brutal warfare of the 41st millennium! Fans of Only War are sure to love No Surrender, and should their characters survive, they just might become heroes of the Spinward Front!
Keep checking back for previews of No Surrender! Then, prepare to assault the Lycurgos star fort in the name of the Emperor in the fourth quarter of 2013!
