“That which I do not possess, I crave. That which I cannot claim, I despise. That which I should not know, I am compelled to learn. That which I own, I tire of. And that which I once called mine, I mourn. Is it the nature of man to desire that which we lack; a sense of untamed curiosity and unrestrained greed that drives us to have more than we need and need more than we have? Is it a curse, that we seek the unknown against all better judgement and heedless of cost? Or is it merely the darker part of ambition, the cost of our aspirations to become greater? I know not... for curiosity is something I possess in abundance, and thus I care not to look upon it when I can look to newer things.”
–Excerpt from the Journal of Parsimus Dewain

There is no Pdf Version to sell of The Edge of the Abyss??
I wish they could give us some rules for Space battle that realy did work...
Hmmm, I wonder how many new Eldar stuff it is going to add.
Great, another book on my list to check out for next time I get close to a game store. Just give it two to three weeks before I can expect to find it. But I feel confident that this book will help me to add more depth to my game.
