The Battle of Castobel
Refining District 18
District 18 was once a sprawling port of call and the entrance to the other hives of Argoth. On the shores of the Emerald Ocean lies the main refineries of Taurinum where the imports of raw iron and adamantine is processed for the adepts of the hive. The waters of that ocean are now heavily polluted, but is still home to several of the large reptiles found only on Argoth. The district itself is a mix of docks and refineries, laid out in a suitable and efficient manner under strict supervision of the former Locum Pinus, a representative of the Adeptus Mechanicus who until the quarantine had been stationed on the planet. Argoth had a shining reputation amongst the Administratum for meeting production quotas and tithes to the never ending needs of the Crusade. At this moment the district has somewhat become a testament to the power that was Argoth in its golden age, but now the refineries are devoid of ore, the docks are empty and the only creatures skulking around the ports are the amphibious creatures of the ocean.
