The Pale Throng-Basic Overview
- 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 and oppressive world of Tranch. There it led the wave ob bloody uprisings that ignited the infamous Tranch War, whose aftermath still lingers to plague many world 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. Its 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 wold now made infamous for war and suffering, the Pale Throng has since created and inspried revolts on dozens of worlds across the Calixis Sector and beyond.
- The danger of this cult is greatest on planets with large mutant populations, especially Hive Worlds and Mining planets. The cult has been very active in the past on Scintilla but eventually became an intense focus for the Arbites, Magistratum – and periodically, The Inquisition.
