042 - Scourge of Fate - Story Phase

Show Notes

In this episode, we are discussing Scourge of Fate by Robbie MacNiven. Did you think the Varanguard, Archaon’s elite shock troops, just sprung from the ground fully formed? Born with a Daemon blade in their hand? No! It takes time, it takes effort. It honestly takes a lot of killing. And in this book, we see just what it takes to reach that unholy order - and you thought your corporate ladder was cutthroat.

The Mortal Realms crew gives our take on MacNiven's first full Age of Sigmar novel with a spoiler-free rundown of the details of the setting, a spoiler-full discussion of the plot, highlights from our favorite moments, and reviews from our overly-opinionated hosts.
