Terrors To Fill Your Nightmares 10
Announcing The Koronus Bestiary, an upcoming supplement for Rogue Trader
Rogue Trader | Published 14 December 2011

“Do not waste your fear on the unknown, for in Koronus we have known terrors aplenty to fill your nightmares."
     –Seneschal Venton Tiebolt

From the enigmatic Eldar to the ferocious Orks, alien races seek to halt Mankind’s rightful rule of the galaxy. Will you master these foul creatures and rule the void, or become another foolhardy Explorer lost to the Expanse?

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce The Koronus Bestiary, an upcoming supplement for Rogue Trader! The Koronus Bestiary is a detailed compendium of deadly beasts, hostile xenos, unholy daemons, and other dangers that fill the uncharted regions of the Koronus Expanse.

In addition to its many adventure seeds and plot hooks, this comprehensive tome features art and descriptions for a range of foes, including Shadowkith, Thornmaws, Void Krakens, and a host of others. Looking for even more vile enemies? The Xenos Generator rules allow players to create alien species as varied and dangerous as they can imagine!

To know your foe

Humanity may have settled untold worlds in the Koronus Expanse, but only the most audacious of Rogue Traders would dare claim that it asserts any true dominion over this lawless region of space. For every conquered planet there are dozens more under the control of vile aliens. Explorers operating in the Expanse are sure to encounter these threats in their journeys, either by accident or design, and must be ready lest their ship and their profits be lost.

Each of The Koronus Bestiary’s chapters concentrates on one type of threat, ranging from savage monsters to predatory alien races to the terrors that lurk beyond reality. Chapter one examines some of the more dangerous beasts found across the Expanse, while chapter two covers the major sentient xenos races in this lawless region of space (such as the devious Stryxis, brutal Orks, treacherous Eldar, ferocious Rak’Gol, and much more). Next, chapter three presents a different sort of threat: foul warp spawn that not only destroy an Explorer’s body, but rend his very soul. Finally, Game Masters can use chapter four’s xenos generator to produce unique beasts, dangerous plant life and even primitive sentient races ripe for exploitation and indoctrination.

Innumerable terrors populate the uncharted planets of the Koronus Expanse. Will you be ready for them? Keep checking back for more information, and look for The Koronus Bestiary on store shelves in the first quarter of 2012!

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.

VoidKraken at last... I look forward to the xenos generator and hope it will be more well-thought-over then the one presented in the DH GM Kit. 

In addition, I hope that this tome will either provide lots of Beasts (in comparison to the main races) and lots of "warp predators" that can be thrown at the players "while in transit".

Some devious warp beast put Koronus Expanse as the title of this news... I was glad, then I checked it to see that it is in fact the Xenos Compedium.

Ah, anyway - the cover art is fantastic, one of the best one I've seen so far. Looking forward to the book.

[ADMIN: Edited. Thanks for catching that; we blame Chaos.]
