Ambushed by the forest serpents
Above- An Imperial patrol is ambushed in the forests of Smarkad III by a pack of bloodletters. These summoned daemons often made quick work of such Imperial patrols increasing the sense of dread the Imperials held for the forests as haunted and cursed. In the close confines of the forest the daemons swords could be quickly employed against Imperial troops. Add to the mix the daemonic howls for blood and triumph and the forests of Smarkad III quickly garnered a black reputation amongst Imperial forces.
