Approximately 15 days after the Aurora Glorificus leaves the previous subsector, Rogue Traders will receive an encrypted message via astropathic communication:

"Warning: Evidence found of widespread reanimation of the dead within this subsector. (Xeno or Here)Technological, not Warp sorcery. Possibly infectious - present, dormant, in some native inhabitants of subsector, only catalysed upon, or after death (or other unknown trigger).

Recommendation: Cremate (or at least behead) any crew who die. May not stop them being infectious, but probably stops them attacking you.

Will bring sample in stasis chamber for your tech priests to examine next gathering - one time only, examination to occur in discrete labstation, labstation to be incinerated following examination.

Addendum: Apparently an explorator fleet turned (was always?) Heretek, but you should probably ask the crew who came into contact with them for more details.
Much love, Vulgrim"

Supplement to previously issued warning:
  • Evidence for reanimation extends throughout sector, and back over 10,000 years.
  • Effect is Xenotech, and capable of affecting other races.
  • Effect does NOT require death (although incubation period is significantly longer in live subjects).
  • Affected individuals communicate and coordinate with each other nonverbally, remain capable of astrotelepathy, and attempt to use Astrotelepathy to communicate with other unknown entities.
  • Xenotech is also capable of infiltrating, animating and controlling the blessed tools and technology of the Lord Emperor.

Reccomendation: Supported. Additional suggestion - quarantine individuals likely to come in close contact where possible (scouts, etc)

In conclusion, let us recall the glorious words of the Imperial Creed - "Some place their trust in warships, and some in weapons of destruction. But we remember the divine Emperor. They are brought down and fallen; but we are risen and victorious."

A transmission is sent from Alabaster Hammer.

Explorators of the Mechanicus. You will likely or have come into contact with reanimated dead humanoids. The Alabaster Hammer have encountered forms at least similar to that encountered by the Aurora Glorificus and the Morituri te Salutamus.

  • Reanimation is highly likely result of xenotech implants, hereafter called infection.
  • Infection currently identified to take many thousands of years to control deceased.
  • Infection not yet identified on non-deceased.
  • Infection has not been identified as able to spread from those infected.
  • Infection currently identified as result of implantation many years prior to death.
  • Source of implantation is currently unknown.
  • Infected are quick, strong and resilient.
  • Infected should be overpowered and destroyed.

Caution is always required, watch those of the flesh. The Machine God will guide and protect.

Further information will be provided at a later date.
