Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness is the first of a two volume hardcover series which introduced the rules and background information for the conflict between mortals and Chaos in the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 settings. Its companion volume is Realm of Chaos - The Lost and the Damned.


Focusing on the powers of Khorne and Slaanesh, this lavishly illustrated book gave players the rules and background to create chaos warbands and powerful champions to their games of Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Roleplay and the then newly released Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader.

Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness is one half of two volumes that make up Realm of Chaos, a supplement for the Warhammer range of games. In it, you'll find everything you need for campaigns set in the Chaos Wastes of the Warhammer World. You will find details for the two powers of chaos, Khorne and Slaanesh. Their abilities, followers, daemonic underlings, and ther dealings with the world are all covered. Full details of the magic of Chaos and the foul mutations which warp the bodies and minds of its followers are also included.

Both volumes of Realm of Chaos can be used to create daemonic armies to fight epic table top battles; they can help WFRP GMs create villains of staggering evil for roleplaying games.
