It is the 41st millennium. For more than a hundred centuries the Emperor has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the master of mankind by the will of the gods, and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the Imperium for whom a thousand souls are sacrificed every day, so that he may never truly die.
Warhammer 40,000 is a brutal setting where the Imperium of Mankind is under constant threat from ancient races, the insidious influence of Chaos, and other terrifying alien creatures. Its been a millenia since the Emperor of Mankind’s fateful battle with his favorite son, dooming him to live out his existence as a corpse god on the Golden Throne. Now more than ever the Imperium relies on the strength of the Adeptus Astartes, or Space Marines. These warriors fight on against uneven odds with the help of several orders within the Empire, including the Inquisition and its many Ordos.
Players must be ready for danger in any form. The combat will be as fast-paced as it is bloody. This is not a campaign for the weak-hearted.
