The Jericho Crusade
Homeworld of Armos Branthan.
Medusa is a harsh realm of perpetual gloom, located extremely close to the Eye of Terror. With a dark and polluted sky, Medusa’s sun rarely shines on the planet’s surface and the world’s geology is highly unstable, with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions constantly creating and destroying mountain ranges and seas. The people of Medusa are hardy and flourish despite the hostile environment. The population is broken up into clans who viciously compete and vie for natural resources and safe ground, as the unpredictable nature of Medusa’s landscape means little can built in one place for long, save a few areas of relative calm which are mostly reserved for the Iron Hands Chapter.
As the nomadic clans seek a new settlement, great caterpillar-like mining haulers carry their personal possessions and resources.
One of the greatest wonders of Medusa is the ruins of the Telstarax, a colossal planet-circling space station dating back to the Dark Age of Technology. It is believed that the Telstarax was used to plunder Medusa of its resources.
Karaashi, the great Ice Pinnacle where Ferrus Manus originally crashed onto Medusa, is still present to this day. However it is said to be half the size it once was.
