Default Death Oath *POTENTIAL SPOILERS *

I am reading the tails of Captain Uriel. I am current on the third book and I am at the part where Uriel receives his death oath. I was wondering how long it takes for a space marine to complete his death oath? Also I was wondering is a death oaths rare punishment or is execution more common? Please DO NOT ruin any of book for me!!!!!

I'd include a spoiler warning in this thread. I'm not planning on reading the Uriel books but if I was I would now know that in the third book he receives a Death Oath for some reason. I'm sure if I was starting the first book I would not want to know about something that happens in the third.

I hope someone else can help you

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

Death Oaths are one of the lesser fleshed out things in Warhammer 40k. The way I understand them, death oaths are a very serious thing when a space marine takes one. It is a very hard task that will likely result in the death of the marine. I would assume that the time frame for the completion of a death oath would be until it's done.

Like downing an entire bottle of death sauce...

...seriously though, it's likely to be something thought up by the author, and probaly isn't elaborated on much elsewhere.

Decidated zur Freiheit! this belongs in the Black Library section of the forums.

I haven't heard of a Death Oath before, I think it's probably something introduced in the book you're reading.

Finally, as mentioned, please include spoiler warnings in the future.
