The Universe of the Golden Throne: Warhammer Lore
"In the Grim Darkness of the far future, there is only war..." For the last 30 years, one of the richest worlds in Science Fiction has been that of Warhammer 40,000. The universe plays an integral part of the game itself, affecting everything from the tactics of individual armies to the grand course of worldwide campaigns. From the noble and superhuman warriors of the Adeptus Asartes, to the treacherous Gods of Chaos, to the hidden agents of the Inquistion, and the mysterious Aeldari; from the dark ages of the Horus Heresy to the modern splitting of galaxy during the Noctis Aeterna, the lore of this world is so deep that it almost seems endless. This panel will be a amuse bouche to whet the appetite of the neophyte looking to learn more about this universe. Due to the limits of time, we will be focusing on the major defining events of the universe, and the history and motivations of the major factions: The Imperium of Man, the Forces of Chaos, and the Aeldari.

Improving art can seem rather daunting. When fighting depression, improvement can appear almost impossible. Finding persistent motivation can be difficult, and the habits we fall into may not always be healthy or constructive.

Mysterium
This is a cooperative team good for groups who like a bit of a challenge, that truly needs to be experienced in order to understand it. Imagine if you were playing clue, but instead you talk to the ghost of the deceased, and they only gave you clues through pictures that you have to bet on being right or wrong. If your right those cards help you build your case file, if you’re wrong an hour ticks by with no progress. Brought to you by Chronicles Games!
