Author has written 11 stories for Warhammer.

Hello!

This is the collective account for the Renegades Saga (account managed and stories edited by VulkansNodosaurus). Renegades was begun in 2011 by gothik, in the Original Works section of the Heresy Online forums; after Renegades 3 was completed, VulkansNodosaurus and Deus Mortis joined the project with their own stories. It details an alternative timeline of the Horus Heresy, and does so while also pushing the limits of Warhammer 40K's cosmology. The inciting incident is that the Emperor, while working on the Webway project in the middle of 001.M31, has a revelation... and everything changes. Enter a world where brotherhood is subject to the whims of madness, where souls bend under the tyranny of love, and where there are no true loyalists and no true traitors - only Imperials, and Renegades.

The galaxy cowers on the eve of Rhana Dandra. Endless darkness and invincible light clash - for the greatest time, and quite possibly, for the final time. From the unforgiven past to the undiscovered future, the old eternity is dying. The only question is whether a new one will rise from its funeral pyre.

(At least, that's what we're trying to write.)

Renegades currently [February 2018] contains 11 completed (1-11) and 2 in-progress or on-hiatus (12,13) stories, hosted on Heresy Online, as well as 6 fully edited (1-6) stories on this site.

We're always looking for more collaborators - if anyone is interested in joining the project, PM! That said, if so, you should read the Heresy Online stories as well as those on this site beforehand.
