Nothing is known of Naogeddon's past, save that it was the site the Deceiver entered stasis upon. It was discovered by Imperial authorities in the year 751.M32, by the Rogue Trader Xiatal Parnevue. Explorator landings took place in the years 021.M35 and 238.M37; both teams were lost. A third landing, in the year 641.M41 was more successful, in that it was able to log surface structures of ancient Xenos origin and report limited evidence of archaeotech.[1a] A follow-up investigation under the same Magos, Explorator Magos Prime Reston Egal, took place later in the 41st millennium. This expedition was also ultimately lost.
Geography and Planetary Conditions
An arid world with 0% precipitation, Naogeddon supports no life. The desert terrain is riven by constant storms of such power that they make atmospheric flight difficult at best and downright dangerous at worst. The storms propel mica shards at significant speeds.[1b] The constant storms shroud the surface of the planet in a dark gloom, as the light of the nearest sun is mostly reflected by the mica, or otherwise unable to pierce the dust-cover.[1c]
