+ Sector Antona Australis +

+ Antona Australis +

A cross-section of the Sector.

The Antona Australis sector is located on the Eastern Fringe of the galaxy and as such has seen combat involving Tau raiders and splinter fleets of the dread Tyranids.

Buffetted by alien threats and internal sedition, the Imperial dominance of Antona Australis has endured for ten thousand years. In this Dark Millennium, can it hold fast?


+ Antona Australis is a loose and fluid background setting for the PCRC's battles; ranging from shadowy investigations with the Dark Heresy game to the battlefields of Warhammer 40,000. +

+ The Antona Australis Sector +

+ This is our gaming group's collaborative setting, used for almost all of our gaming – from Epic to Necromunda, the sector has seen a lot of war! So far, over the course of a decade, we have charted over 120 planetary systems spread over nearly a dozen subsectors. It's not just Imperial worlds either; as the Tau of the expanding Brightsword Protectorate and the eternal greenskin threat from the Scallop Stars are also detailed – not to mention a number of minor xenos. +

+ The setting has evolved organically, and in the grand spirit of Rogue Trader it combines bleak nihilism – such as the eternal gallery of Limbs [+noospheric inloadlink embedded+] – with dreadful puns, like the Nowhere Fastnesses [+noospheric inloadlink embedded+] of Orkspace. +

+ What is it? +

The top level of the map – use your mouse wheel to zoom in.
+ Presented (mostly) as an in-universe account of the sector built for Inquisitorial reference, the sector has an interactive map [+noospheric inloadlink embedded+] that you can zoom around to explore. Pretty much everything is clickable, from subsectors to individual fleets. +

+ The PCRC use this both as a repository for story ideas and as inspiration for gaming. The sector has seen battles and campaigns that cover everything from individual cities – our first campaign together was fought over Dolor [+noospheric inloadlink embedded+] – to entire space regions, as in the Fourth Great Cull of the Scallop Stars. +

+ On a personal level, I love the scale that the sector suggests – even my biggest projects occur on just one or two worlds in a sea of others. No matter the heroism or villainy, whatever the result; you will not be missed... It really helps to hammer home the dystopian nature of 40k. +

+ In addition to the sector itself, there are records of notable military forces [+noospheric inloadlink embedded+], dramatic personae [+noospheric inloadlink embedded+] and more, so do take a browse. +

+ As you can see, there's a rich stew of story ideas and concepts scattered throughout – it's our hope that it proves as useful to you as it has to us. Please feel free to scour the databanks and take what inspiration you like! +


+ We'd love to hear which worlds or setting you liked the sound of – and if you create any models inspired by the sector, please send them in; we'd love to see them. +
