Haruspex ~ Slaanesh RDPS

April 23, 2012 Leave a comment

You were born in agony, and you shall die in agony. You have been fed on the pain of your enemies and nourished on the suffering of the weak. When you are cut and bleed, smear your blood across your body and take joy at its warmth. You shall not know fear nor feel the cut of the enemy’s blade across your skin, for these are attributes of the pathetic and the unworthy. Embrace your own pain and turn it into pleasure. Take in the pain of those around you and forge it into a weapon that will devastate the foes of the Dark Prince. Go forth and unleash the Dark Winds for the glory of your master.

Ice Witch ~ Kislev RDPS

April 22, 2012 1 comment

“We live in a world drowning in its own blood; a world where women are most often the victims. But this does not have to be so. Kislev stands at the forefront of the struggle against Chaos, and as such all our folk must prepare for the inevitable. Today you begin your lives as Ice Witches. Today you grasp your fate in your own hands and turn the tide against Chaos. Winter’s unforgiving chill now courses through your veins, use it to exact punishment and justice upon the foes of Kislev!”

~ Ice Queen Katarina, Daughter of Tsar Boris

Arcane Tempest

April 21, 2012 Leave a comment

v1.8.5b

As the soldiers of Kislev huddled behind the creaking palisades of the frontier forts, the winds engaged in a turbulent clash above their heads. From the south a sheer icy wind cut through the Kislevites as they tried desperately to resist the lure of the warmth flowing from the Norscan mountains to the north. The steel blue wind of ice magic rushed north across the steppes spiraling up as it met the Norscan foothills and collided with the violet winds pulsing with warmth. Winter is just settling in and already the Kislevites are forced to bear the brunt assault of the elements and the looming threat of Chaos. The forlorn Kislevites face little choice but to fight in the harshest conditions, for it seems certain that the forces of Slaanesh will assault Kislev while it struggles to fend off the freezing cold and the tempting lure of Slaanesh’s wiles.

Already the drums of war are being sounded in the Norse mountains – the forces of Chaos marshal and prepare for an assault. Slaanesh is bringing a fresh force into the conflict in an attempt to tip the scales of war in his favor. Leading the hosts of Slaanesh’s legion are his newest creations – the androgynous Haruspices. These powerful spell-casters weave the suffering of the world into twisted energies of pain and pleasure. 

Sensing the imminent threat from the forces of Chaos, the Tsarina of Kislev is being forced to commit her own magical forces in the defense of her Tsardom. Marching into war for the first time in many ages are the Ice Witches of Frosthome, from which the Tsarina herself hails. Though their numbers are few, Tsarina Katarina has already begun the process of enlisting young girls in larger numbers at Frosthome that they may join the ranks of the soldiers defending Kislev. The Ice Witches of Frosthome are about to engage in the deadliest test of their knowledge of ice magic as they clash with the minions of Slaanesh.

Order players who acquired the Letter to Frosthome in the Turbulent Winds live event have two weeks early access to the Ice Witch. Destruction players who acquired the Summoning of Painbringers in the Turbulent Winds live event have two weeks early access to the Haruspex.

Turbulent Winds Guide

April 20, 2012 2 comments

v1.8.5a consists of the Turbulent Winds live event. With the forces of Slaanesh feeding off of the suffering of the forces of Order, Slaanesh is committing more forces to the struggle – and bearing the brunt of the attack are the worn out and weary soldiers of Kislev. Cascading down the icy slopes of the Norse mountains is a strange warmth causing the Kislevite soldiers stationed along the frontier to fall into a false sense of comfort. Sensing the anomaly in the north, the Kislevite commanders prepare for a second onslaught. Key in their preparations is fueling the winds of Ice Magic to counter the unnatural warmth which is no doubt being fueled by the sadistic forces of Slaanesh. Read more…
