“Warpstorm (n.): A massive uprising of the Immaterium that bleeds over into reality causing disruption, chaos, and cessation of warp–travel; often a herald of doom.”
—Lexicon Calixia, 35th edition, M39
Near the Coreward end of the God-Emperor’s Scourge, bathed in the faint, flickering, bruise-coloured light of the distant Void Dancer’s Roil, lies the small and unassuming Forsellis system. It is sparsely inhabited, has little in the way of resources, and boasts no archaeological sites of interest. Its one habitable planet, Damaris, lies halfway between the star and the vast ice fields at the edge of the system, and manages to survive against all odds. But now, vile xenos threaten to destroy everything they’ve built. Can you help the people of Damaris in their hour of need? More importantly, can you find the profit in it?
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of The Frozen Reaches, the first adventure in The Warpstorm Trilogy for Rogue Trader! As previewed in Profit and Plunder, The Frozen Reaches throws the Explorers before an impending Ork invasion as they work to save the planet of Damaris. But first, they will need to organize squabbling factions and establish a united front. This is no easy task, as powerful forces are working against them from the shadows...
Use all your charm and influence to prepare a planet’s defences as the Ork fleets close in on Damaris. Fight the xenos in space aboard the bridge of your starship, or meet the bloody Orks in brutal hand-to-hand combat on the ground! The choices you make ensure success, or guarantee defeat. Choose wisely, and reap the rewards of your victory.
The Frozen Reaches can be played as a standalone adventure, but the events and characters it introduces are only the beginning. The Warpstorm Trilogy, an epic series of adventures, centers on the exploits of the Explorers as they uncover a great mystery that threatens the entire Expanse.

I like the cover art. Crisp.
Ooooh shiny, and something to do for after Lure of the Expanse. :)
I'm almost glad I didn't submit to the contest. Sounds like I wouldn't have won by virtue of having written a very similar sounding adventure but with the ruinous powers instead of orks.
Ooohh nice, it is about time that the Orcs start rampaging again. I hope that I get my hands on this one when I finish Lure of the Expanse.
Looking forward to getting this one for my new group! ^_^
Sounds pretty interesting. I think I will be checking this out, hopefully it is chock full of ork stats.
