|Chaos in the Old World | Published 03 September 2009||Rating||24 votes|
The ruins of my home are still smoldering as I return to look at the damage. We can only come out at night, for fear the hosts of Chaos will find us. We never thought they could win, we thought that a hero would surely rise up and defeat them. We were wrong. Chaos poured out of the frozen north and washed our world away. All we can hope for now is that they will grow tired of their sport long enough for us to rebuild.
-Johannes Broheim, Former champion of the Elector Count of Ostland
The forces of the Ruinous Powers descend to lay waste to the Old World. Standing in their way are the fractured inhabitants clinging to their existence, as well as the other gods. Each god has a unique way of rising to dominance. Khorne, the Blood God, revels in the joy of bloodshed and battle. Tzeentch, the Lord of Change, schemes and plots as he employs his mastery of magic to weave hidden destinies. Nurgle, the Plague Lord, unleashes disease and infection upon the world as he gains strength from each new illness. Slaanesh, the Prince of Pleasure, offers ultimate pleasure through wicked excess. Each god has their own followers and warriors to send forth in their name. For those wishing to become one of these foul powers, your time has come. Chaos in the Old World is now on sale!
