“These foul reaches are the misbegotten creation of heretical agents. We shall journey through them and overcome the horrid beasts that begot them. For the noble light of the God-Emperor must be shined into the darkest of places to cleanse their taint.”
–Rogue Trader and Inquisitor Kobras Aquairre
A powerful force has awakened from its slumber somewhere deep within the Hecaton Rifts, and if left unchecked it will spell certain doom for the denizens of nearby sectors. As this ancient evil threatens to destroy both the Koronos Expanse and the Calixis Sector, can you and your fellow Explorers learn the truth of its mysterious origins?
Fallen Suns, the third and final instalment in The Warpstorm Trilogy for Rogue Trader, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! A lost Eldar Craftworld has begun a dark voyage of death and disaster, and only the Rogue Traders of the Koronus Expanse stand in the way of its rampage. Journey into a perilous realm of madness and ancient hate; from Footfall to the Serpent’s Cradle and beyond, you must make common cause with allies old and new if they are to survive. The fate of the Koronus Expanse hangs in the balance!
Fallen Suns can be played as a standalone adventure, or as part of the gripping series of adventures that began with the events of The Frozen Reaches and continued through Citadel of Skulls.
The Thrilling Climax
In The Frozen Reaches, you and your fellow Explorers assisted the beleaguered world of Damaris in its fight against the Ork Warlord Snokgritz (an attack that suggested far darker forces at work). Then, in Citadel of Skulls, your hunt for answers brought you to the world of an infamous Chaos-blessed pirate lord. In Fallen Suns, these ominous events will culminate in an adventure that will shape the future of the Koronus Expanse.
The heretic fleet of the Faceless Lord seeks to claim the Craftworld’s power...can you survive the exciting conclusion to The Warpstorm Trilogy? Head to your local retailer and pick up your copy of Fallen Suns today!
Rogue Trader is a roleplaying game set in dark gothic far future of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe. Players take on the roles of explorers aboard a Rogue Trader's ship, searching for profit and adventure while discovering new alien cultures and threats in the uncharted regions of space.
Edit: *But* it is also long overdue to have offical rules for Eldar PCs... Fluff-wise that would certainly make sense in a Rogue Trader's retinue beyond the fringes of the Imperium...
The fanbase would be delighted!
Although I found the idea of that cosmic evil in the final installment of the Warpstorm Trilogy rather innovative (I try to avoid spoilers), I also must say that Plynkes does have a point: while I *love* everything Eldar and their appearence in an adventure has always been very well done, they have been very present in the official adventures supplements of Rogue Trader.
I'd be interested in adventures featuring Space Marines (which would mean the Storm Wardens, to be more precise) in some way. Maybe that could be an idea for the next adventure trilogy...?
So the big bad evil we've been leading up to is some Eldar thing? How hugely disappointing. I was hoping for something better than this. Some soul-shattering cosmic evil was hinted at, and what we get is the Space Elves again? Unlike many others it seems, I'm one who wishes we could see LESS of the Eldar, in RT not more. They already hogged the limelight in Lure of the Expanse. Are they going to star in the finale of every adventure from now on? I do hope not.
So... when will this be available in the UK?
Completely agree Mr. Grimace. Would love to see the enigmatic Eldar appear more in the rogue trader universe, as it would be a welcome change from the usual aliens encountered and put forward as playable characters(Kroot and Orc, really? Two single-minded and relatively dumb character archetypes).
That was quick! That literally went from being on a boat to being in stores. If they are sending shippments through warpspace I don`t want to have to wait 100 years for Hostile Acquisitions.
Eldar fluff is always welcome...keep up the good work.
