Realm of Chaos

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Realm of Chaos was a two-part series of books; the first published in 1988, the second in 1990. The books are part of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader (First Edition). The works discuss the four deities of Chaos and the various aspects of Chaos and the Warp. The books were designed for both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Fantasy. This information has since been superseded, but still forms the basis for later background in Third and Fourth Editions, inspiring the Horus Heresy novels and the Liber Chaotica set of books.

Slaves to Darkness discusses the nature of Khorne and Slaanesh. The Lost and the Damned was its companion book, dealing with Nurgle and Tzeentch.
