Origin Of The Ordo Geminus?

Unknown Imperial Transmission

Sender: Unknown

Receiver: Unknown

Subject: Ordo Geminus


--++ As you requested my lord I have acquired good information regarding the rogue organisation known as Ordo Geminus, I have included an abridged version of their known history as well as some speculation regarding their intentions towards this are great Imperium.

According to my records the Ordo Geminus began life as a faithful branch of the Adeptus Sorietus, led by two twin sisters know for their piety and devotion to the Emperor, soon after their ascention to Canoness they and their squad were despatched to the world of AIuralosst to investigate growing reports of potentially dangerous heresy being transmitted to Imperial space by the planetary government, where most simply ignored the transmissions, due to the worlds notoriety for unintentionally wasting the time of Imperial forces, the Adeptus Sorietus having dispatched the twin sisters took a greater interest. The ship arrived in what seemed like a matter of days, and the sisters reviewed the intelligence from the planetary government, the heresy appeared to revolve around a mysterious figure who arrived on the planet about five months earlier and began performing miracles some of them reportedly sinister in nature, shortly after this some of the inhabitants began calling the man by one of three names The Malefex, The Hand Of Glory and The Left Hand Of The Emperor this final name is where the heresy lay to associate this being with our most noble of Emperors, It was possible that this was the work of Chaos and the sisters decided to confront this man and his followers and cleanse their taint with the Emperors sacred flames.

As the sisters and their squads surrounded the dusty clearing they were met by a group of 100 men and women dressed in the ragged grey clothing of the AIuralosstian working tier the squad raised their weapons, "Hold your positions" one of the sisters shouted as the horde drew nearer, "The Left Hand Of The Emperor welcomes you, the most faithful of the Empires servants" an old man said gleefully, "He is waiting to see you", "Be silent Heretic!" one of the sisters shouted pointing her holy bolter in their direction, the man staggered back somewhat shocked, "M, my apologies" he stuttered "Please he wishes to speak with you", "He knew you would come", The sister didn't see any threat in this man, no taint of chaos, no malice she could see in his eyes his devotion to the Emperor, "We will come to your master, but the rest of you will remain here, under guard" she said, ordering part of her squad to remain behind and guard the civilians, they followed the old man to a cave a short distance from a pool of clear water, near to the cave mouth was a dark figure, he wore robes and armour similar to an Eldar Ranger, with an old style gas mask like that of the steal legion, his armour was emblazoned with an ancient heraldic mark which neither sister recognised, "Come closer...." the man beckoned as they drew nearer he began to sit down, and to their astonishment a chair of earth rose up to meet him, he sat in it quite comfortably, "What is this magic Heretic" one of them cried out raising their bolter causing the remaining battle sisters to raise their weapons in turn. "Tell me why do you call me a heretic when you do not yet know me, is it mealy the name those poor people kindly gave me", “The ones who distrust me dubbed me The Malefex if one name disturbs you then please feel free to use the other, "do you fear the presence of Chaos perhaps, Chaos is not the only power within the warp.", "In fact the Emperor's mighty spirit dwells there, protecting us all...." One of the battle sisters in the squad cried out "I won't tolerate this Heresy any further!!!" opening fire on the man with her bolter before anyone could stop her, the man raised his hand deflecting some of the bullets which flew back striking the sisters throat and temple killing her, the man stared at her shocked, "please this was not my intention he pleaded, I could....", one of the Canoness sisters turned to him pointing her bolter at his head, "you have sealed your fate heretic" she spoke softly slowly closing her finger around the trigger. The man reached out his hand, a purple light began to engulf him and suddenly there was a burst of blue-black flames, the dead battle sister arose composed completely of that same fire, throwing herself into the path of the bullet and destroying it, she was an Avenging Angel, how could this chaos spawned Heretic summon such a holy entity and bend it to his will, one of the sisters stood shocked, there was no taint of chaos here, just a sense of purity and safety, she felt the Emperor in his wisdom might actually be watching over this man, the other sister was not so easily impressed, "surly this must be some kind of trick", she whispered, as the Avenging angel faded away she felt as if the sisters soul was truly with the emperor now, "If you are a psycher or a witch then why do I not sense the warp upon you she shouted, what manner of beast are you who can force the Emperors own miracles to take place", "Mealy a servant of that Emperor, sent to show you the true path to his side" he said standing upright and opening his arms welcomingly, "He gave me this symbol as proof he exclaimed pulling an ancient metal seal from within his robes, this seal predates even he, it will be the sign of the covenant he wishes you to accept, that we may save the empire, from the corrupting forces which seek it's destruction", the sisters reached out towards the seal and as they both grasped it, it drew towards them both splitting in two and becoming one with their armour, they felt the emperors will stronger than ever running through their every thought, with the help of The Emperors Left Hand they would save the Imperium and humanity it's self.

That is how the story is told anyway after this the Canoness Sisters disappeared along with the Malefex, many battle sisters and a great number of the inhabitants of that landmass, the system was scoured diligently but no trace of them could be found, I have however acquired for you further accounts, reports and rumours regarding there whereabouts and current activities, which I will include in a subsequent transmission, preliminary reports indicate that though their intentions may be or have once been pure the eventual outcome of their machinations may ultimately undermine Imperial order and Harmony They should be treated as a potential threat to all Imperial authority. The capture or destruction of these sisters and their renegade army should be a high priority. ++--

Translation Complete


I have been looking over that info of yours my lord and I've been doing some researching of my own, I interrogated on of the lads from that planet and he told me a differing account of events, this is about those Geminus Lassies, you understand, it is said that they sympathised with those chaos folks out of the immaterium (warp) from before they went to that little world, people have heard rumours that they spoke with Slanesh through some heretic or something, and that they liked what they heard, the fellow says they let that one (the heretic) free afterwards, also rumour says that that "Hand Of Glory" fellow had been speaking with Slanesh as well, he'd been seen with those lady daemons that serve the chaos god, I say we better do something about them (Ordo Geminus) before they get to great in number and start causing big problems for us loyalists, I happen to have found what could be their whereabouts, a freighter captain tells me he was nearly hit some big diamond shaped thing near the blue star system, he says it had their markings, I've included the coordinates for my lords personal viewing, the captain says that thing fades in and out like it isn't quite there I'm going to be following more leads for you soon, Sairelus Malstrobe, bounty hunter, signing off.

The blonde and redhead looks interesting.
Lore and story behind it even better.
This Malefex dude must be really something. and his..err connection to Slaanesh? Wonder what other events will unfold.
But,Ezarik, do you have any plans to update your work on your Macabee mod?
Impressive redneck Bounty Hunter speech. My tonque needs a ducktape.
Even better than infamous Ork speeches.
Good luck and be well Tom Marvolo Riddle Maylam.

Currently I've been considering giving this race an airborne HQ which involves using my old mobile structures system e.g. making an entity outside of a squad so the game treats it like a building but you can move it around; so at the moment I've been busy with some other stuff which applies to some of my mobile HQ mods as well (e.g. Winter Assault Necrons, The Reamnantt mod (A robot race I made up basically a sort of hybrid between Necrons and Tier 1 Lego Cybernetica), etc.) namely tampering with the Annihilate win condition to make it check for specified entities as well as the normal building stuff since the quick work around I originally used broke the condition in such a way as to mean if the enemy had no buildings at all the game couldn't finish from that condition. There might be something new comming for the Macabee Mod soon regarding a Void Dragon Beast and a port of the better version of my winter assault AEonic orb (the one with more weapons) if I get round to it. Since I seem to have lost my relic News Account I'll paste this here in case anyone looking can see why this one line breaks the whole code for Annihilate.
if (EGroup_ContainsBlueprints( GroupGorEBP02, BlueprintTable01A, false ) == false ) then

disagree with you, my friend.
А почему позор то? вроде всё в норме. Модели новые готовятся.
Вот если б мод был бы полон багов и ерунды разной, как мои старые проекты, то можно было б так сказать )))

Thanks, the original idea was BrotheLucane's I'm just making the mod for him and adding to the concept a bit, I had an idea recently for the race's background that revolves around there being three stories of their origin in the first they are a renegade faction protecting the imperium, in one they are heretics who serve chaos and in another they are acting for humanity's best interests using both sides as a way to protect humanity from being corrupted by the other, I intend to reflect this with three mutually exclusive in game researches which act as a final tier changing the way the race behaves, though I forgot to check if BrotheLucane liked the idea before I started writing the three backstories.

No we will not die. Although it will be a slow mod since our schedules are hectic.
