We’d like to thank every Wrath & Glory player for their patience while we complete the revised Wrath & Glory Rulebook.

We’re regularly asked for a precise release date; always a tricky question. We’re very keen to get the game out and start playing, but we also want to make sure it’s as good as it can be! 

Sometimes it’s hard to estimate a realistic release date as there are so many factors to consider when working on a rulebook. What we can say for now is that progress is good, we’ve done a lot of work, and we’re looking forward to a PDF release early this year.

If you have a PDF copy of the original rulebook from DriveThruRPG it will be updated automatically for free. We will also publish a list of all significant changes made to the book which will be available for free on our website.

The revised rules will be fully compatible with the original Wrath & Glory rules, represented in a new, clear layout with some optional extra rules to roleplay your way. Creating your own character to explore the grim darkness of the 41st millennium will be easier than ever, and we’re adding new systems for advancement and ascension. 

Warhammer 40,000 is filled with epic stories of the Imperium’s heroes surviving against impossible odds. As you and your group adventure in service of the God-Emperor, you’ll gain experience and grow in Rank (if you manage to survive). Increasing your Rank boosts your powers, but if you survive more than the standard life expectancy of 15 hours there are even more great storytelling opportunities to be had. 

When you reach a high Rank you can purchase an Ascension package to become even more powerful. The newly expanded Ascension packages offer multiple opportunities to weave narratives, change your campaign, and make your character unique. Every Ascension helps you tell a story your character embarks on alone that could span over decades; you can play these with your Gamemaster or write them up yourself — the choice is yours. 

By Ascending you can acquire strange new wargear, terrifying new abilities, and mould the world around you. Will your daring escapades win you devoted followers, or a frightening nemesis? Will you betray your comrades for dangerous secrets? You might broker a new alliance, uncover a mystery, or even take on the Black Carapace to become a fully fledged Space Marine.
