Damhal was an Imperium Shrine World in the northern area of the galaxy[Note 1] that contained many stasis-crypts.[1b]

History

Sometime after the Great Rift's creation, the world was overrun by the Hrud, who were drawn to the rich veins of crystallised time given off by the stasis-crypts.[1b]

Once the world's plight was learned, several regiments of the Mordian Iron Guard and a strike force from the Sons of Medusa Chapter were deployed to destroy the Xenos. Each was rapidly aged and destroyed by the Hrud's natural entropic powers. After their destruction, two Deathwatch Watch Companies from Keep Extremis attacked the Hrud next and were led into battle by eight Deathwatch Dreadnoughts. It was these ancients who lead the final strike upon the Hrud's warren within Damhal and they endured the Xenos' parasitic aura long enough to slaughter their leaders and collapse their tunnels. The victory is costly though, as all of the Dreadnoughts were completely rusted and the heroes they held were turned into dust.[1b]
