Magnor Prime was an Imperium Fortress World that was once invaded by the Night Lords, who began launching terror raids against the world's Imperial Guard garrison.[1a]

This lasted for weeks and the garrison nearly revolted after seeing their skinned comrades chained to their defenses every day. However, Magnor Prime's salvation arrived when the Harlequins of the Masque of the Veiled Path appeared and offered intelligence on where the Night Lords would launch their next attacks. The garrison was so desperate by then, that they followed the Harlequins' advice and were then able to repeatedly ambush the Night Lords before the Traitors could launch their following attacks. Eventually, the Veiled Path began to aid the garrison in their battle against the invaders and the Night Lords were soon forced to escape. After ensuring the Fortress World was saved, the Masque of the Veiled Path departed as well, without explaining why they aided in Magnor Prime's defense.[1a]

Millennia later, when a horde of Khorne demons entered the Webway due to the collapse of a Dolmen Gate, the Veiled Path enacted a plan to prevent the Daemons from attacking the Black Library, which lay in the horde's path. The Masque awakened a little-used Webway Gate as the horde reached it and caused the Daemons to spill unexpectedly out onto Magnor Prime. The resulting war with the invading Daemons raged for over a year on the Fortress World and led to the mutual destruction of both the Imperium's and Khorne's forces.[1b]
