I says a prayer that Shallya’s hands
Will hold me young lad fast
As plague and war took me other four
And this one be me last
–from a Reiklander Folk Song
Priests of Shallya, yours is a difficult task. Violence and war are common throughout the Old World. There are many even within the Reikland who struggle with sickness or finding sufficient nourishment. Meanwhile, the Ruinous Powers spread blood, death, and pestilence everywhere they go, and their corrupting influence works its way into the hearts of our people, bringing greater suffering.
Still, the Maiden of Mercy commands her priests to bring peace whenever peace is possible, and whenever it is not possible, she demands that you work to protect the innocent and the righteous from needless suffering. It may seem an impossible task, but Shallya gives her followers strength in their efforts.
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that Faith of Shallya, a Print on Demand supplement for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, is now available through our webstore to bring new peace and mercies to the Old World.
Blessings of Shallya
Priests of Shallya view violence as a last resort. Instead, they strive to ease the suffering of all in need, focusing on diplomacy to solve their problems whenever possible. Still, Shallyans often travel to dangerous places to tend to those in greatest need. Shallyan priests wander the Old World, bringing healing to all they encounter, and their warrior priests, or hospitaliers, tend to the sick and wounded on the battlefield in times of war. Though they abhor violence, they hospitaliers will fiercely defend the wounded, hospices, and healing tents when there is no other recourse.
Faith of Shallya introduces fifteen new blessings and two new items to help your Shallyan ease pain and suffering throughout the Old World.
Faith of Shallya introduces new options for healing from Rank 1 to Rank 5, as well as charms to help you resolve situations through peaceful negotiation, and power to mitigate the suffering caused by diseases. When the Fly Lord, Nurgle, is involved, the Maiden of Mercy lends her full strength, and Faith of Shallya presents players with several new means to deal with diseases.
What is Print on Demand?
Print on Demand is an exciting new process that allows Fantasy Flight Games to produce professionally finished cards on a made-to-order basis, which opens up new opportunities for expanding existing games.
This process (not to be confused with Print and Play) results in smaller print runs of professionally manufactured products, allowing publishers to provide fans with content that would otherwise not be commercially viable. If you’re a retailer interested in carrying our Print on Demand products, visit our Professional Zone website to learn more.
