Amontep II is an Imperium Forge World.


Belisarius Cawl discovered that Amontep II contained the material known as Blackstone, sometime after the Great Rift's creation. After the discovery, Cawl ordered the Magos Dominus Dentrex Ologostion to begin excavating Amontep II's surface to uncover the Blackstone, but several Obelisks were unearthed during the process. Soon afterwards Amontep II was revealed to have been built upon a Necron Tomb World, when hordes of the Xenos emerged to attack Ologostion's Adeptus Mechanicus forces.[1]

What began as an isolated conflict between the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Necrons on the quarry world of Amontep II became a galaxy-wide war. Across the planets of both the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Knights, Necron presence was suddenly and startlingly revealed. The mountains of Auros IV rumbled with tectonic tremors as Necron tombs awakened beneath the surface of House Vulker’s fiefdoms. On Voltoris, the recently healed High King Tybalt recalled swathes of his house’s Knights from the Eastern Fringe, jeopardising their chances of winning an ongoing war against the Tau Empire to counter an emergent Necron threat upon Terryn’s home world. Dozens of forge worlds issued calls for reinforcement from their satellite Knight worlds as Necron tombs stirred to life beneath their foundations, yet the Noble houses were equally beset. Many believe that the Necron awakening has accelerated as a response to the coming of the Great Rift, but whatever the truth of the matter, well over half of all the Imperium’s forge and Knight worlds are now besieged by the ancient race.[2b]
