Bastonbeil is a world in Ultima Segmentum far out on the Eastern Fringe, at the very limits of the Astronomican.


History

Once a night-shrouded Hive World, Bastonbeil was a primary recruiting ground for the Death Falcons Space Marine Chapter. However, at the dawn of M41, Bastonbeil fell. Something ancient and terrible rose from the underhive of the capital city, something that fed on the souls of the living and devoured the city's inhabitants by the millions. The Death Falcons responded in their entirety to destroy the creature and its zombie hordes but vanished after three months of fighting within the dark depths of the underhive. What finally emerged instead was the Company of the Shadow, Space Marines with grey armour that writhed with the faces of damned souls. Overthrowing the world's Imperial Commander, for the last 900 years the Company of the Shadow has enslaved Bastonbeil and used it as a base to launch many attacks against neighboring systems.[1]
