The Battle for Arkanthos IV

An Only War game from the mind of Jack Carey, running all across the weekend, if you sit down to play, you’re gonna need a 12-pack of characters just to last at the table. No prior experience required to play, just a willingness to serve the emperor, and to die standing.

Arkanthos VI was once a bustling Imperial world in the Scarus Sector. Now, its people have fallen to the lies of the Ruinous Powers of Chaos and rebelled against their former protectors. In response, the regiments of the Imperial Guard, the Hammer of the Emperor, have been dispatched to bring this rebellion to justice. Arkanthos will become a battlefield as the traitors are ground into dust under a hail of bullets and legions of manpower.

You are one such Guardsman. A mere drop in the ocean of blood about to collide with the rebel forces.

Armed with only a lasgun, a flak jacket, and a prayer on your lips, you are expected to hold the line against whatever horrors await you or die trying- And you will die. That much is certain. Such is the lot of one soldier in countless billions.

But the question is, will you make your death count?
