A heavily industrialized sector of space close to the Imperial heart land, this territory suffers from far greater than average incidents of heresy, corruption and rebellion.
Situated in the galactic northwest half way between Terra and the Eye of Terror, the Morpheus Sector is a primary production source providing men and material to reinforce the Cadian Gate and the Imperial watch worlds encircling the Eye of Terror.
With the launch of Abaddon's 13th Black Crusade the Morpheus Sector is stretched to the limit providing resources and has become comparatively lightly defended at a time when it needs strength like never before.
From the Realspace/Warpspace overlap on the eastern side of the Sector, once a large group of heavily populated Eldar worlds and now a nightmarish Warpstorm known as the Realm of Dreams, come the Chaos Space Marines and their armies of Heretics intent on destruction and mayhem.
From below the galactic plane, rising up like a beast from the depths to consume all; Tyranid Hive Fleet Tiamat has already almost completely devoured a neighboring Sector and now encroaches on Morpheus.
And near the center of the Morpheus Sector, amid dead worlds and old, weak stars long ignored by the Imperium, ancient, machine like intellects begin to awaken and focus their malignant, alien gazes upon the heavily populated human worlds around them.
