Rogue Trader - The Hos Dynasty
It’s promised me everything I’ve ever wanted, and even though I know it’s lies and deceit, there’s a little voice in my head whispering “What if”. At least I pray it’s in my head.

Little is known of the system of False Hope, for the entire body appears to be a nebula. Navigators have theorized there must be planets or some sort of large gravitational object inside, as the system casts a definite shadow in the Warp, but to date nothing has been found.
Periodically messages from False Hope stretch out to Explorers, tantalizing them with stories of great wealth and power if only they will step into the nebula and claim their prize. Most emerge weeks later having gotten lost inside and finding no trace of anything that could have sent a message. The rest never return at all.
The Adeptus Mechanicus has set up several way-station beacons whose machine spirits loyally attempt to dissuade any from entering the nebula.

While charting the route between the Footfall system and the False Hope system, we intercepted an astropathic message that indicated a Imperial Governor Nijer was in dire need of help and would pay for any assistance rendered to help his colony inside a nebula in the system. While debating if to help this Governor, Explorator Artifex Felicis was able to decode a message from Mechanicus beacons surrounding the nebula, paraphrasing they said “All messages from the Nebula come from an unknown quantity.”
It was at this point that it was suggested that they were some type of “Warp Siren” message being sent out from the nebula. If this is indeed the case I take head to all Navigators to avoid being ensnared by this illusion of profits and supposed “Governor Nijer.”
