A New Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Print on Demand Expansion is Available
|Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay | Published 24 January 2013|
Necromancers are amongst the most cursed of all those who practice the magical arts, for they have exchanged their humanity for the ability to raise the dead and command them to wage war upon the living. The practitioners of the dark arts are strange, twisted creatures. They are obsessed with death, yet desire nothing more than to go on living…
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce From the Grave, a Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Print on Demand expansion, now available on our webstore! From the Grave presents three new careers, the Necromancer, Master Necromancer, and Grave Warden. It also opens dark new options for both players and GMs with a new follower, new actions, talents, items, and more!
In secluded towers and hidden laboratories, vile Necromancers work their dark magics. They are amongst the most cursed of all those who practice the magical arts, exchanging their humanity for the secrets to control life and death. Such secrets come at a cost, and all Necromancers suffer corruption of both mind and body, slowly starting to resemble the corpses they animate.
However, not all who start down this road to damnation do so out of personal greed. There are those rare individuals who turn to the practice of necromancy out of desperation – to save a loved one’s life or to extend the lifespan of a great and irreplaceable leader.
From the Grave gives both players and GMs the opportunity to delve into the secrets of reanimation with the Necromancer and Master Necromancer careers. The expansion comes with everything necessary to add these careers, as well as the Grave Warden, to your campaign: career sheets, career ability cards, standup cards, Talents, and Actions. You’ll also find a follower sheet for the Necromancer’s Bound Ghoul familiar and two new Items.
Will you play a disgraced Wizard who turns to necromancy when he uncovers a dark, heretical tome? Will you use the Necromancer’s Action cards to introduce a truly memorable Adversary into your campaign? However you make use of the Necromancer in your campaign, these foul creatures are considered a plague on the Old World, for they raise the dead to serve their dark whims and pervert the natural order in their quest for immortality.
Tending the Gardens
The priests of Morr who preside over burials are unable to maintain each of the cemeteries in which the Empire’s dead are interred. Known as Gardens of Morr, these cemeteries are often kept by Grave Wardens. Appearing as a new career in From the Grave, the Grave Warden is responsible for maintaining each Garden’s grounds, walls, and monuments, trimming back its black rosebushes and keeping things tidy. These Grave Wardens also regularly patrol each Garden’s perimeter, ensuring that no grave robbers, would-be necromancers, or crypt ghouls attempt mischief.
The Grave Warden’s role means that he often stands as the first line of defense against any unquiet undead that would disturb the Empire’s deceased, and the Grave Warden understands better than anyone how dangerous it can be to walk alone at night.
What is Print on Demand?
Print on Demand is an exciting 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.
