Jericho Reach

Position in Imperium

The Jericho Reach is located in Ultima Segmentum at the borders of the Imperium. At its center lies the Hadex Anomaly, within which several Daemon Worlds exist. The Jericho Reach is connected to the Koronus Expanse in Segmentum Obscurus through the Jericho-Maw warp gate.[1a]

Overview

Currently a bastion of Chaos, several other threats have also set their eyes on the Reach. The Tyranid Hive Fleet Dagon is encroaching into the region from the northeast. In the south, the Tau have colonised several worlds. Since 777.M41 the Imperium has been pursuing the Achilus Crusade, also known as the "Dead Crusade". The troops and fleets involved in the Crusade are from the Segmentum Obscurus and use a warp gate to travel to the area, which would otherwise take years of travel in the Warp to surmount any decent offensive.[1b]

History

Subsector and Important Worlds

The Jericho Reach was once called the Jericho Sector, before years of neglect by the Imperium left the sector to fall into decay and eventually into the hands of Chaos. For thousands of years Chaos has been left to fester in the once rich Imperial worlds, watched only by silent posts manned by the Deathwatch.[Needs Citation]
