Seven Saints of Talis
Khal’Na’Khorr is the name of the bastion built into a semi-active volcano located in the far north west of the continent. It is a formidable redoubt, reinforced with rare metals mined from deep within the planet with defenses constructed by a warband of the Iron Warriors. Long-range auspex scans indicate that the fortress is defended by staggered lines of trenches, armored bunkers, razor-wire lines and minefields, supported by mid-range artillery pieces built into the slopes of the mountain itself. At the base of the mountain, the walls have been shorn smooth, rising a hundred meters above the ground, and covered with gun-ports, balustrades and emplaced weapon positions. The main gates of the fortress rise seventy meters and are wrought of solid adamantium. Of the interior, little is known, only that it is a tenebrous maze, capable of being held a hallway at a time, with frequent dead-ends, switch-backs and choke-points, in addition to automated defensive weapons, gates, and similar traps. Further, there are tens of thousands of soldiers and daemons residing within the keep, in addition to at least a squad of Iron Warriors and, it is believed, a warband of the World-Eater Legion.
It is home to legions of Khornate warriors, mortal soldiers given over to service of the Blood God, and uncountable numbers of Khorne’s daemonic servants. It is believed that the current leader of the Khornate forces on Talis is Warlord Khurg Skullshatter.
