Posted on September 12, 2008, Shawn Sines Warhammer Online’s Backstory Novelization Released
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has become part of a rich storytelling tradition with the release of “Empire in Chaos”. This new book based on the WAR storyline will add its histories to those that have come before it.
EMPIRE IN CHAOS, written by noted Games Workshop scribe Anthony Reynolds, is now available in bookstores in North America. The epic novel follows the journey of Annaliese Jager as she escapes her destroyed village only to be swept up in an epic battle to save the Empire from the marauding forces of Chaos. Joined by an injured High Elf, a grizzled Witch Hunter, and a Dwarf Ironbreaker, she will battle along side the armies of the Empire and Dwarfs against greenskin tribes and the dreaded Chaos Raven Host. Together, this unlikely band of heroes must fight like never before to turn back the tides of darkness, or the future of the Empire is doomed.
WAR is based on a game with deep roots and back story. From its origins as a miniature war game through all the incarnations of videogames, the Warhammer world and setting has inspired countless stories of heroism and the ravages of war. It’s reassuring to see Mythic carrying on this proud tradition. To unearth more stories of the Warhammer fantasy universe, check into The Black Library.
