Warrant of Trade

Resolved henceforth in the name of the Most Beneficient God-Emperor of Mankind, the High Lords of Terra grant this Warrant of Trade to:

Morgan D’Stayn

And to all of her line, from now until the end of time.

The Bearer of this Warrant of Trade is granted the inalienable right to go forth beyond the sacred borders of the blessed Imperium, to contact such benighted civilisations as she may encounter, and to make war for the glory of the Emperor as she deems necessary. By the authority of the Senatorum Imperialis, this Warrant places the Bearer as a peer to the great powers of the Imperium, inter alia: Imperial Commanders, Chapter Masters of the Adeptus Astartes, and the masters of the Holy Orders of the Emperor’s Inquisition.

The authority this Warrant grants begins where the Imperium ends. Beyond the extent of Imperial rule, the bearer of this Warrant speaks with the voice of the Emperor Himself.

It is the bearer’s right and his responsibility to claim whatever worlds, resources, or privileges she may obtain in any manner he chooses.

By writ of Seal of Holy Terra


Comprising a vast tome in it’s entirety, bound in ancient leather and possessed of multiple gene-coded locks, the Warrant of Trade is the beating heart of a Rogue Trader’s operations. Without it he is a mere renegade, shunned or destroyed by the rightful servants of the Imperium. With it he has the power to build, or destroy, entire worlds.

This having been said, the Warrant is limited in it’s application within the Imperium, it’s true power lies in the powers of exploration it bestows upon the holder. Even fleeting contact with the vile Xenos is allowed under the dictates of such a venerable document. Suffice to say that the full remit of the Warrant is nigh limitless, but that certain actions may attract the attention of Imperial authorities that look upon a Warrant Holder with suspicion, disdain or even jealousy.
