DARK IMPERIUM
This expansive lore section provides a doorway into the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium. It is a far-distant future dominated by an oppressive and corrupt Human empire its
crumbling borders defended by doomed heroes and imperiled by threats from both without and within its history marked by ignorance and carnage and the laughter of thirsting gods.

The first part of this guide explores the decaying Imperium and the galaxy in which it resides – the long-dead God-Emperor who sits eternal on his Golden Throne the High Lords and
Adeptus bureaucracies that rule in his name the fanatical Ecclesiarchy which preaches the Imperial faith the secretive Ordos of the all-seeing Inquisition and the post-human Space
Marines who fight battles no other could endure. You'll also discover the hellish dimension known as the warp which fuels psychic mutation and interstellar travel the mad Gods of
Chaos who rule its infinite depths the blasphemous cults that serve them and the Great Rift that splits realspace itself in two.

There's also a double-page galactic map highlighting vital planets systems war zones and warp storms.

The second half delves into the history of the setting from its myth-shrouded past to the apocalyptic clashes of its present. You'll find a timeline of Humanity's development through the
Ages of Terra and Technology the Ages of Strife and Darkness all the way to the Age of the Imperium. You'll explore the superstitions that fuelled the Imperium's worship of lost
technology and its fearful hatred of aliens and mutants the Great Crusade through which the Emperor sought to unite Humanity the Horus Heresy that set the galaxy aflame and the
millennia of war and loss that shaped the Imperium.

Finally you'll enter the Era Indomitus – marked by the opening of the Great Rift the birth of a new God of Death and the revival of the Primarch Roboute Guilliman. Even as the new Lord
Regent's Indomitus Crusade strives to reunite the dying Imperium a psychic awakening heralds a terrifying Age of Witches and Abaddon the Despoiler plagues the galaxy with aid of
the daemonic demigod Vashtorr and their Arks of Omen. The return of Lion El'Jonson the First Primarch of the Emperor only forestalls total disaster – and with the resurgence of Hive
Fleet Leviathan the galaxy may be reduced to nothing but food for an alien swarm.
