The GHO Narrative is a 24-player, 3-team event to decide the fate of the planet Lenk in Segmentum Obscurus. Recently reclaimed during the Indomitus Crusade, the planet now finds itself beset on all sides by Chaos and Xenos attackers alike. In this tactical, Crusade-based Narrative event you’ll play with a team of 7 other players to either defend Lenk or doom the planet to ruin. This exciting event takes place over two days and six rounds of play, with support for a wide variety of armies and play styles.

The Adeptus Titanicus Narrative is a 12-player, 2-team event that runs concurrently alongside the GHO Narrative. While smaller forces squabble over various objectives on the ground below, God-Engines clash in an epic conflict to determine the fate of the planet Lenk. This map-based campaign will see Imperial and Chaos Titan Battlegroups fight to gain the upper hand on Lenk both for themselves and for the greater war effort. With five rounds of play taking place over two days, there will be plenty of opportunities for Titan Principes of all stripes to make their mark on the Indomitus Crusade.
