  1. For thousands of years the lost Overseer of Moros III has reigned over his world. But in the horrified mind of the possessed Chaos Lord Arachnos the heresy was but a century ago, hot in his mind like a blistering brand. He had split from the original word bearers, preferring to roll with the weaker subordinate humans lost in the Eye of Terror rather than conspiring among astartes.
