Cover Description

Part I

Fell is the Hand of Darkness, a relic of great evil. Seeking to rob the powers of Chaos of this relic and bend fate to the favour of order, Yvraine of the Ynnari and the mysterious yet deadly Visarch lead a host of aeldari on a quest to steal it. To reach it, however, they must first beseech the aid of the Black Library. Only then will Yvraine and her warriors have even the slightest chance to slip through the Garden of Nurgle and from there to the Plague Planet and the Whispering Tower of Mortarion, where the Hand of Darkness surely resides.

Running time 21 mins

Part II

Yvraine, the Herald of Ynnead, and her warriors have achieved the first goal in their quest to liberate the fell Hand of Darkness from the daemon Mortarion. With the aid of the White Seers, guardians of the knowledge in the dread Black Library, Yvraine and the Visarch embark on a journey through a strange landscape, where the Dark Prince, the Chaos God Slaanesh, seeks to turn them upon one another and end the promise of the Ynnari forever.

Running time 20mins

Part III

The quest of the Ynnari – to infiltrate the Plague Planet and retrieve the Hand of Darkness from the daemon primarch Mortarion – continues. With their path now clear, Yvraine, the Visarch and their followers must venture into the Realm of Chaos itself, braving the horrors of Nurgle’s garden – if they can first defeat the sorcerer Ahriman, whose armies lay siege to the Black Library!
