The Pale Throng-Basic Info
- It is rightly regarded as the cause of one of the most dangerous threats to the stability of the Calixis Sector in recent years. The Pale Throng is a mutant cult whose origins lay on the bleak & oppressive world of Tranch. There it led the wave of bloody uprisings that ignited the infamous Tranch War, whose aftermath still lingers to plague many worlds in the Malfian and Adrantian sub-sectors to the present day.
- No subtle cult or hidden conspiracy, the Pale Throng is a crazed and degenerate congregation of shambling horrors and decayed and sickening witch-breeds. It’s only goal appears to be to throw off the shackles of its “oppression” and visit bloody vengeance in an apocalyptic rebellion to destroy the Imperium and ultimately seize control of the future of mankind. Born on a world now made infamous for war & suffering, the Pale Throng has since created and inspired revolts on dozens of worlds across the Calixis Sector and beyond.
- The danger is greatest anywhere there are large mutant populations, mainly Hive Worlds and Mining Worlds. The cult has been very active in the past on Scintilla, but came to be a real focus for the Arbites & Magistratum there, as well as the Inquisition – which has kept it largely in check.
