Overview

Angelis was being surveyed by the Imperial vessel Eternal Vigilance in 344–345 M35 when an Ork Space Hulk crashed into it, creating a massive canyon dubbed "Da Skid" by the Orks, and irradiating the landscape of the surrounding area, including the base station of the Imperial survey team who had been investigating the planet's complex of pyramid structures, and attempting to determine the reason for the apparently artificially caused lack of any living organisms, right down to bacterial and viral levels, on the planet.[1a]

The surviving Orks set about building a new ship, to leave the planet and rejoin their Waaagh!. Unfortunately for the Orks, rivalries broke out over which Ork god the ship resembled, and the construction process slowed dramatically as tribes fought for resources and territory. The vessel was eventually destroyed in the fighting. After the destruction of the ship, both sides decided to band together and name the vessel "Gorkamorka", meaning that it could look like either of the Ork gods, Gork and Mork.[1b]

It is to note that some of the Gretchins that the Orks brought with them rebelled, demanding equal rights to those of the Orks. This is the first recorded occurrence of Rebel Grots.[2a] It has since been designated a Xenos World due to the higher population of Orks than humans.

Perhaps unknown to the Orks, Gorkamorka is also a Necron Tomb World.[3]

Native Life

Mutated humans (Muties),[2b] tribal humans (Diggas)[2c] and Necrons[3] are also believed to reside there.
