Acts of Sacrifice is a short story by Evan Dicken which takes place during the Age of Chaos as the Order of the Ardent Star try to survive the onslaught of the champion of Khorne Sulkotha Godspite [1]


In the chapel of the Order of the Ardent Star, Sir Aenea prays to the warrior goddess Myrmidia for guidance. And with an army of rampaging Khornate warriors outside, she has never needed her deity's guidance more. Her master is dead at the hands of the Chaos warleader, her comrades brought low by the seemingly unstoppable champion of the Blood God. With fewer than a hundred of their number left, the only hope for survival lies in a desperate sally forth from their fortress, seeking the indomitable redoubt of the distant Drakenount.
