The Imperium of Man has lost contact with untold worlds, and stands on the brink of disaster. This is a game of intrigue and adventure. This is a game of action and carnage. This is a game about the struggle to stop the doomsday clock from striking midnight for an entire galaxy. This is Wrath & Glory.
A GRIM FUTURE OF GLORIOUS ADVENTURE
The sinister schemes of the Chaos Gods have shattered the galaxy. The Great Rift tore through space and reality, pushing mortal life to the precipice of oblivion. The Gilead System has lost contact with the vast Imperium, trapped in the silent darkness. As the shadows of extinction loom, hope fades but is not yet entirely extinguished.
Rallied by the Rogue Trader Jakel Varonius, a disparate group are dedicated to doing what must be done to keep the Gilead System from being consumed by the darkness. Can they resist the machinations of Chaos as well as the plots of those who see the rift as an opportunity to further their own power?
Time is running out in the 41st Millennium. This accursed age needs heroes more than ever before.
Will you answer the call?
The Wrath & Glory Rulebook is everything you need to roleplay grim and glorious adventures in the Gilead System.
Wrath & Glory is the story of the Gilead System, eight Imperial worlds cut off from the Emperor’s light by the Great Rift. The new Rulebook focuses on the Gilead System, allowing you to tell your own stories in a society beset by daemonic invasion and internal corruption.
In the revised edition, the essential Rules have been reviewed, errated, edited, playtested, and presented with a focus on clarity and quick understanding. Very little has changed bar a few simplifications, which will mean you’re using the book less and your imagination more.
