Yesterday, we announced some Age of Sigmar updates at Warhammer Fest that we are excited to share with you now, in what will be the first of many #MortalRealmsMondays!
Firstly, we are delighted to reveal the game’s official title:
Soulbound Starter Set
While we revealed the core book cover art a while back, we can now discuss the starter set and share its fantastic new cover art. The starter set will contain two books: an adventure book that will teach players and GMs how to play Soulbound; and a city guide that will give more information on a brand new city in the realm of Aqshy (more on that in later updates!).
As well as the two books, the Starter Set will come with pre-generated characters, player handouts, reference sheets, and lots more goodies we will discuss soon. The cover, created by Johan Grenier (who also created the core book cover art), is shown in full below. The top section (the city guide cover) depicts a city being cleansed of the taint of Tzeentch; the bottom section (the adventure book cover) shows our iconic heroes in desperate battle with hordes of Tzeentchian horrors and a terrifying Lord of Change. Together the two covers combine to make one amazing portrait image.
And that’s not all, we also have some wonderful new art for some of our Archetypes.
An Archetype defines the broad strokes of the character you play in the game. It may be your job, a calling, a military rank, or something a little more esoteric, but whatever it is it represents who you are when you first pick up the dice. Your Archetype is who you are now, but who, or what, you might become has yet to be decided.
We also think it’s important to focus on daily life and what it entails for the people who live there. This will give both players and GMs an idea of what it would be like to adventure in these lands, who they might meet, and the threats they might face. It provides a grounding for you to set your adventure in any Realm you choose.
There are a huge amount of new and exciting developments for Age of Sigmar, so to ensure we make the best game possible we’ve moved the game’s planned release from the later part of this year to Spring next year. We look forward to sharing news regularly as we progress on our website and social media.
Next week, we’ll start to dig into the rules for Soulbound and explain how Tests work. Until then, blessings of Sigmar be upon you!
