Very soon, the Warhammer Underworlds action will leave the Mirrored City and migrate to Ghur, the Realm of Beasts. Goodbye Shadespire – and hello Beastgrave! Alongside the new game, Black Library will be bringing you a novel by C L Werner that will be your first chance to explore the setting of Beastgrave in prose. Here’s the blurb from the back of the book:
Beastgrave will be available in eBook and hardback editions – and anyone who buys the hardback will get a special treat. Packaged in with the book will be three cards to use in your games of Warhammer Underworlds that feature some Black Library-exclusive art.
These cards first appeared in Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault – so they’re still usable in competitive play – and are themed around Katophrane Tomes, the preferred reading matter of the former lords of Shadespire. Check out just what their favourite books were with this exclusive first look at the new art.
Two of these objective cards reward you for upgrading your fighters with Katophrane Tomes from the various Nightvault warband packs. Acolyte of the Katophranes gives you glory for each such tome your warband controls at the end of the game, while spreading them across your warband can give you a massive late-game glory boost with Preserve Their Knowledge.
Not everyone in the Warhammer Underworlds is a bookworm though,* and Disdain for Knowledge lets you score additional glory for killing opposing fighters who have Katophrane Tomes.
Whether you’re a preserver or destroyer of knowledge, you can use these cards in your games of Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave and read your new book – which will be available to pre-order soon. Until then, you can catch up with goings-on in the Warhammer Underworlds in Josh Reynolds’ Shadespire: The Mirrored City and the audio drama collection The Darkness in the Glass – download them both now!
* There probably are literal bookworms in the Beastgrave though, ready to tear your arm off to protect their pages.
