The intoxicating lure of Chaos leads untold millions down the path of corruption, and the noblest of intentions offers little protection against its dark influence. A soldier’s bloodlust, a politician's ambition, a lover’s desire, and even a mother’s whispered prayer over her feverish child – they are all the playthings of the Dark Gods. Why resist? Wealth, power, and happiness await those who serve the Ruinous Powers, and the only price is your humanity. Swear allegiance to your dark masters, and reap the rewards of their favor!
Focusing on Nurgle, the Chaos God of pestilence and plague, The Tome of Decay, a supplement for Black Crusade, serves up all manner of ailments, resources, allies, and ideas for Nurgle’s grotesque followers. The Tome of Decay also includes advice for GMs on running their own plague-filled campaigns!
In addition to powerful new allies and ailments for the twisted followers of Nurgle, this volume contains many new resources for heretics of all sorts, whether they worship one of the Ruinous Powers or their own ambition. The Tome of Decay includes the Warpsmith and Veteran of the Long War Archetypes, whose endless war against the Imperium has sharpened them into peerless killers, and rules that allow Heretics to forge their own Daemon Engines or even bind Daemons within their own bodies to become powerful Possessed champions of Chaos. Finally, this Tome contains the rules for ascension to Daemonhood and running one’s own Black Crusade, allowing the most powerful Heretics to take the fight against the servants of the False Emperor to terrible new heights.
