The Eternal DarknessO n the edge of the north-eastern fringe of the Imperium lies a small binary star known to humans as XCV, around which orbits a small and totally dead planet.
Hundreds of years ago, the Imperium named this world Angelis and sent ships toexplore it and investigate the alien ruins that lay under its barren surface. Nothing was ever heard from that expedition again. Soon the search was ended.
Furtherattempts to reach the planet were abandoned in the face of warp storms impenetrable to the ships of the Emperor. There is no monument to the men who travelled so far across the galaxy and whose fate remains a mystery to this day. Without warning, a fiery harbinger of doomplummeted onto this parched, dead world from the As speculated by early scientists, the universedepths of space.

But Orks being Orks, and naturally potentially useful components, dismantling others forresistant to radiation, physical damage, and setbacks of all kinds, they promptly set about thebusiness of surviving. Nonetheless, in the light of later events wecan be fairly sure that this is roughly whathappened.
Of course, it is uvvre bear in mind that Orks and Humans are very differentcreatures. Orks and other greenskins are riddled withsymbiotic algal cells whose own separate geneticdevelopment is confusingly enmeshed with that of theOrks. It is this symbiote strand which carries geneticallyencoded cultural skills, endowing Orks with innateknowledge and abilities.
Thus primary technical skillsare passed on genetically, rather than learned or taughtin the fashion of Humans. Descended as they are from an unusually restricted genepool, the Orks who survived the crash developed aculture which is in many ways unique amongst theirown kind.

The causes Mekboyz from one faction laboured away at teleporters of this traumatic division seem bizarre to the human on one side whilst others were busy filling fuel tanks on mind — yet human history itself is full of sectarian the other.
Discord reigned and positions became so violence whose origins are every bit as perverse and entrenched that Mekboyz holding contrary views incomprehensible. The crisis stemmed from the view refused to even speak to each other.
