The Emptied Coffin takes place primarily on the far away and mysterious world of Jove's Descent. The events are centered around a series of occurrences, starting with a chamber of the enigmatic Omega Vault opening and drawing the Kill-team to the wasted ruins of the Ghanathaar to uncover the forces that originally wiped the race of xenos out, and to stop a similar fate from befalling the Imperial forces of the Achilus Crusade. The mission is complicated by a series of mishaps that initially seem coincidental, but later betray the inhuman intellect that is the driving force behind a burgeoning apocalypse.
The Emptied Coffin is a complex adventure featuring many different adversaries as the Kill-team attempts to follow a mysterious clue unveiled by the Omega Vault. The judges really liked the adventure’s unique take on one of the lesser known xenos races of the Reach, as well as the Watch-Captain integration within the overall plot.
