Title: Legacy of the Blood Ravens: Battle Lines Author: Darth Zandalor (AKA Arcsquad12 on FF.Net) Genre: Action, Grimdark Disclaimer: All rights to Warhammer 40K belong to Games Workshop and their subsidiaries. I own nothing but the computer I'm typing on. Content Warning: Graphic Violence (It's Warhammer) Characters: Blood Ravens Space Marines, Brother Cyrus in particular, Craftworld Ulthwe Eldar, Kauravan Imperial Guard. This is a story that I've been working on in collaboration with another FF.Net writer. It is based around the events of the Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War franchise, intending to expand upon the conflicts that the Blood Ravens find themselves in during the final years of the 41st Millennium. I highly recommend you check out my co-writer's work, which forms the main plot of the Dawn of War 2 games. His story: "Nothing But a List of Names to Mark His Ascension" This work is based on the game Dawn of War: Soulstorm, detailing the crushing defeat of the Blood Ravens that still affected the Space Marine Chapter well into their later years. Without further ado, here we go. If you have trouble following along at times, I'm writing from the impression that most people interested in this story have at least a passing knowledge of Warhammer 40K.
