Slavery to freedom. Abandonment to brotherhood. Betrayal to devotion. These and many more were promised to those Astartes that left the Imperium to join their brother's cause and rebel against the Emperor. In a world where your only value is the measure of what you can do for Humanity, it's no wonder that it's members can feel alone. In this episode, we discuss what a Heretic Astartes is, how they came to be, and how they continue to exist.

"Well hello Citizen!" * A robed and hooded stranger hands you a pamphlet* "Have you heard of the cul- ahem I mean Church of the Four Armed Emperor? We have services twice a week in subsection 23B of the City! Yes we know thats far underneath the streets, but we like privacy. We'll see you there!"

You stare at the pamphlet and an unshakable desire to learn more takes a hold of you. You find your way to the meeting, and are warmly greeted by more hooded and hunched figures...

*50 years later*

You stare in rapture as your Father finally emerges from his throne. His will searing through your mind thanks to the Princely being beside him. You raise your gun and yell your cultish ululations as your family assaults a local governments office. Tears stream down your face as you see the spaceships of your God enter the atmosphere. Your ascension is here.

In this Episode we talk all about the Genestealer Cults!

Joining us again is James.

Podcast cover

You finish your daemonic prayer to the Lords of the Waste. Your unholy invocation leaves your lips. Power grows within you. You raise your arms above your head and prepare to cast down the enemies of your Master when... it ends. The power, the pain, the blessing, all disappear. And there, striding through the haze of your euphoria, a diminutive human, in muted silver armor, the gorget covering the lower portion of her face. She stalks toward you, eyes trained on yours until it feels like nothing else in the galaxy matters except for your imminent end. A scream escapes you as she approaches. Her eyes smile as she gives you your forever doom.
