The Vermillion Conspiracy was an attempt by four individuals to come into control of a Standard Template Constructor located underground on the planet Menazoid Epsilon. The STC produced sentient automated warriors, and was a relic from the dark age of human technology. The plan was designed by Inquisitor Heldane, and ratified, approved and taken up by Lord-General Hechtor Dravere. The long term goals of the conspirators greatly varied.
