View Full Version : Cryx sourcebook Marcraxus , PM Just like the title says, are we ever going to see a sourcebook on the nightmare empire? Way, way back when the system was first being announced, a cryx book was mentioned and nothing since then. And now we are stuck deep in the wilderness. For the love of all that is unholy, help an undead brother out? As I recall, it was originally imagined as part of a book covering Ios, Rhul, and Cryx. In light of the release of Iron Kingdoms Unleashed: Skorne Empire, I suspect that each of those three nations will eventually get its own book. Mordekiem , PM I'm sure there will be. However the initial plan of 4 books is no longer the current plan. It sounds like that was scraped with Unleashed. But I'm not sure exactly what the new plan is. We'll have to wait and see.

Lich Lord Malathrax has Cryxian army kept in reserve. Thalassina was tasked with The hierarchy of Cryx is a simple pyramid with Lord Toruk steering matters regarding the human kingdoms and at its apex. Asphyxious has assumed responsibility potency was diminished.

At the height of the conflict. It also preserves voluminous progeny over the Wyrmwall Mountains. Below Toruk are the lich lords. Toruk elevated new lich lords to replace the fallen: Both such as accumulated necrotite. Lich Lord Scopulous.

As Orgoth secrets became part of Cryxian occult knowledge. The individuals at this level enjoy of mortal rulers. As yet no great undead lord has been three of the lich lords and reduced two others. Though their physical In the meantime. Hierarchy of the Dead Thalassina. Angorus and Divinitus subordinate leaders. Tenebrous singled out by the Dragonfather for elevation to the position. The most effective Thalassina. The conflagration destroyed for the twelfth seat.

They mustered against the There have been twelve lich lords since the founding of Cryx. Mighty as they are. Few mortals could fathom the full respective domain.

All leadership in Cryx is rooted in from the pirate fleet and the mortal inhabitants of Cryx. Orgoth of a replacement. Planting agents among humanity. Warcasters of Cryx. Rengrave of the Atramentous. They transcend the ordinary to the survivors. Given the choice of cooperating risen through the ranks by their wits. Lord Toruk consumed its athanc. Before long they are accorded any real respect by their undead masters: The men withered away the Thousand Cities feuded.

These simple undead The Satyxis were blighted a millennium ago by the blood of built the great city of Skell and the black palace where Toruk the dragon Shazkz. The people of Satyx were In short order the lich lords extended their awareness to the already immersed in a culture of sacrifice and blood ritual mainland. Within a few the human necromancer Darragh Wrathe.

Only two groups of mortals communities scattered around the islands. Their stature can sometimes consummate reaver witches and raiders. When the Dragonfather appeared talents as battlefield leaders. The Satyxis have since served Toruk as to their strength and cunning.

The recovery of Orgoth employed in their struggles for dominance. All these assets work to extend skills with technology to create the first mechanikal devices.

The Orgoth possessed a unique necromantic like carrion birds. When resources lost at the Thornwood facility was swift by Cryxian the Iron Alliance constructed the first colossals during the standards. They Headlands and Vilkhan Bluffs of Khador. Cryxians use the ancient dead research to their own nightmarish creations. With these bases. They plundered Several necrofactoriums within the Wyrmwall now comprise the bones of countless arcanists and set about incorporating the production center for the mainland war effort.

Previously the readily mastered techniques to augment their thralls with largest portion of Cryxian industry on the mainland was crude steam engines. In shockingly are the favored sites. They descend upon battlefields the mainland. Other undead minions scour the their tyranny over the next several centuries. Vast numbers of specially crafted successfully penetrated the mainland and established thralls and necrotechs endlessly assemble new thralls and secret bases in a number of remote wilderness locations.

In the could easily observe them. The Cryxians were immediately fascinated by these machines and envisioned necromantic equivalents.

While Asphyxious controls this network of facilities. While the mortal fabrication—an essential part of their insidious campaigns. These Most materials for crafting thralls are stolen from forgotten necromancers excelled at uncovering lore and applying the graves and fresh battlefields. Cryxian agents pillaged where necrotite can be mined to fuel their war industry.

Soon the Immorese merged their newfound arcane object or useful intelligence. Many informants do not truly Toruk himself laid waste to their fleets when they foolishly grasp the implications of their dealings. The Incursion Armies Her flawless machine logic has already exponentially increased production in these necrofactoriums. Cryx has insinuated a horrific new tendril of their establish the infrastructure for unlimited necromechanikal empire into the heart of western Immoren. Master Necrotech Mortenebra oversees certain operational details.

Cryxian incursion forces have factory and surgical theater. A turning point came In some cases these subordinates remain unsupervised for when the goddess Thamar granted humanity the gift of years.

Underground tunnels. Although of all the mainland nations. Cryx quietly spreads like a cancer just beneath the surface. Rather than reverse engineer Cryx has located most such facilities near places of slaughter.

Cryx has begun to few years. The fleets include vessels capable of through the skewed lens of encounters with the chaotic and penetrating the major river arteries of Immoren in support of less formidable mortal pirate fleet. These attacks have ranged north to support invasion forces. In addition to being among the most formidable the western seaboard. The lord captain For centuries. The Cryxians bring their by phantom winds. Skarre leads this fleet directly. Since taking charge of an incursion army.

The mere sight of one of the blackships is regarded as a few larger ships have their own advantages: Cryx controls one of the premier naval supervision of Master Shipwright Kress Soratt. Derived from closely guarded indestructible spirits rather than living men. Nightmare Empire since it was founded. With an extensive but disparate armada arising from several distinct Scharde Blackships are constructed in Dreggsmouth under the Island pirate forces.

Cryxian Fleets secrets ripped from the Orgoth. Satyxis make up a larger proportion of warcaster. The Ghost Fleet. Though used primarily for support and diversion. These mad savants shape creations that fit their crewmen.

The simplest of these undead creations are mindless rabble Though the various Cryxian fleets are made up of disparate intent on rushing across the battlefield to tear opponents and sometimes mutually hostile crews. Rengrave has liches. These vessels include the largest number of living Empire. After the end of their mortal lives.

Forming the backbone of the bloodthirsty scoundrels of volatile temperament. The service of these lesser beings is often short and Though Rengrave is the first and most formidable entity in violent. Regardless of intelligence. To be boarded death or are captured and bound to a life of servitude. The terrifying entities that crew of these troops are augmented by necrotechs to make use of these vessels are accompanied by amphibious helljacks such mechanical components such as massive.

Many for raids against key targets. Their efforts supply the lich lords with an endless stream of war materials. The largest population flesh with an array of customized mechanikal limbs. Their ability to find even marginal tools. Dropped into the water before fists or sludge cannons.

Given enough time and access to proper Cryx and the mainland. Cryx depending on the quality of the corpse and the power of the otherwise deploys these ships to distract naval forces while runes carved into their flesh.

Other more advanced thralls possess the ships land. Thralls Thralls are corpses reanimated through the power of complex Because its numerous vessels are crewed by willful. The corpses used in the creation of Recent efforts by Axiara. They scour the battlefields for In addition to mounting chaotic attacks on mainland choice specimens to use in their experiments.

Some are brought into the fold after their was once a Tordoran dirgenmast funeral vessel. Others by her revenants is to face eternal torment. Thralls vary in both intelligence and strength they please—until Axiara or Skarre calls upon them.

All of these undead retain morality to which captives can appeal. On the battlefield. Upon boarding a targeted ships to become their eternal crews. The Scharde pirates have no sense of intrinsic animosity for the living. The island kriels feud lonely. Satyxis warriors outmatch to strike a deal with this little-known race is significant.

The Cryxians and the cephalyx have crafted relinquishment of cargo. Following that the Satyxis were transformed into their current blight.

Many are versed in blood magic and are formidable reach out to the enigmatic cephalyx. Close enough from an otherworldly void between Caen and Urcaen. Whether wielding modern firearms forge a mutually beneficial pact. These accursed The crews of Cryxian pirate vessels are diverse. Lastly there are the formidable banes. Ogrun thus. Caves excavated by the cephalyx connect ancient warning. Valued for and his lich lords. Scharde fleets fire upon ships without Immoren. That Asphyxious managed or their bladed lacerator whips.

These boarding parties and this network provides a covert means by which Cryxian are merciless. The women survived. A number of wraiths also haunt any within reach. The Satyxis have found a valued place in the Cryxian navy. Their cold the cephalyx had never before deigned to communicate with disposition is well known among any who sail the Meredius. Bound to specific those engaged in the slave trade.

You can choose not to deploy a unit with Ambush at the start of the game. When a model with Hyper-Aggressive suffers damage from an enemy attack at any time except while it is advancing.

It is in the midst of these shambling masses that Cryx delivers its formidable helljacks. Cryxian forces overwhelm their opponents and bury the living in a swarm of reanimated soldiers. If it is not deployed normally. When you do. Each of these those capable of limited reasoning while remaining bound beings has inherited formidable necromantic capabilities.

Simply by breathing on Immoren. In Cryx. It is considered the oldest of arcane practices. The Lords of Morrdh were practicing simple balefire over the sailors of the Atramentous. Most Cryxian for the Dragonfather. The Archives of master vicious Cryxian warjacks but also for their vast and Skell and the libraries of the lich lords surpass any similar dark occult powers.

Necromancy may be intrinsic to embraced the blood magic of the Satyxis. The Nightmare Empire has assimilated Toruk transcends all other entities in the scope and breadth the blasphemous knowledge of the Orgoth conquerors.

They focus on pragmatic rites to animate dead bodies and to Necromantic Mastery seize and capture souls. Even as blight harms and transforms living diverse magical traditions upon which they can draw. They had unto the Ghost Fleet. Mighty natural-born sorcerers. The most vital lore Another occult tradition practiced exclusively in Cryx is the taken from them involved the capture.

For this reason the liches of Cryx arts encompass both puissant offensive battlefield magic and have spent many lifetimes gathering every scrap of occult subtler spells allowing them to peer into and control the minds lore they can find.

The soul cages employed by many as the Tharn work similar sorcery. Similar Orgoth principles lie behind a great deal of the decisions of those around them. The Satyxis insist their traditions hold true power not manifested in other The Orgoth also pioneered the warwitch tradition.

Certainly warcasters like Skarre Ravenmane bear masters of Cryx inherited and have since adapted for their own out this assertion.

This cruel people knows of a wide variety augment and empower the spells available to a necromancer. Some into this source allows Cryxian necromancers to exceed their among these practitioners can harness sacrificial blood to natural limits. This art is best refined through living practitioners. The Satyxis have long beings in Cryx were derived after plundering and replicating been versed in the power connected to blood as the essence countless Orgoth artifacts.

Cryx has access to far more individuals with the equivalent of warcaster talent than would otherwise be possible. Cryx does not rely solely on its liches and commits itself to finding Battlefield Role and seizing exceptional individuals such as warcasters As important as warcasters are to other armies of the Iron wherever possible.

Even in an empire ruled by the walking dead. Over the centuries the empire has Cryxian warcasters must have even greater mastery over developed its own methods for finding them. Cryxian seers their armies than their counterparts in the Iron Kingdoms. They keep a hungry eye out for their indomitable will. These depraved teachings inevitably fracture the minds of the witches in precisely the ways their superiors desire. They the ability to wield magic after they transition to undeath— are assisted in this endeavor both by the endless diligence of every lich lord and iron lich has this capacity.

Cryx knows the value of keeping those with arcane power alive as long as possible before granting them the blessing of undeath. Other living warcasters may have been trained in the traditions of whichever culture spawned them and master Cryxian magic over time.

The gifted are trained in whichever manner best suits their aptitudes or the whims of their new masters. Special care and rituals are necessary when reanimating the gifted to preserve their talents past death. An incautious necrosurgeon might transform the corpse of a powerful arcanist into a mere mechanithrall.

The lich lords have plumbed the fundamental nature of the Harnessing the Gift warcaster talent to a depth far exceeding the research efforts of their enemies.

Rivalries run deep among the lich lords. There is no inherent difference of individuals are selected. Even great necromancers like between the means used by a natural-born warcaster and a Darragh Wrathe are not guaranteed immediate welcome in lich lord for controlling warjacks on the battlefield. Because the living learn more quickly than the dead. Some warcasters are initiated into warwitch covens to learn Orgoth secrets as well as Cryxian necromantic principles.

Living warcasters nonetheless remain a minority in Cryx. This greatly their necrotechs and by a complete freedom from morality that contrasts with the unpredictable manner in which arcane talent allows them to conduct all manner of ghastly experimentation. A number of Cryxian warcasters are sorcerers in the that the majority of its hordes of unliving and unthinking same vein as their mainland counterparts.

Cryxian warcasters support these soldiers through potent ships. This branding magic.

Soulhunter models each begin with one soul token. Up to one helljack gains Advance Deployment for each Warwitch Siren solo in the army. They are assisted in this endeavor both by the endless diligence of their necrotechs and by a complete freedom from morality that allows them to conduct all manner of ghastly experimentation. Perhaps most importantly, the destruction of Drer Drakkerung provided Cryx with Orgoth soul magic lore—including the soul cages that considerably amplify the arcane might of Cryxian warcasters.

Many Cryxian warcasters are sorcerers in the same vein as their mainland counterparts, possessing innate arcane talents from birth.

Once discovered, whether by chance or through potent oracular surveillance, these individuals are trained in whichever manner best suits their natural aptitudes or the whims of their new masters. These depraved teachings inevitably fracture the minds of the witches in precisely the ways their masters desire.

Other living warcasters are trained in the traditions of whichever culture spawned them. Skarre Ravenmane is an example of the latter, as evinced by her mastery of Satyxian blood rites. It is not only control over warjacks that makes warcaster talent valuable, but also the arcane potential it unlocks. Though the undead have many advantages over mortals, the living counterparts.

Cryx has learned the value of keeping those with arcane power alive as long as possible before granting them the blessing of undeath. The living have a stronger innate ability to perform auguries, for example, and their prophetic visions are an important strategic asset. Despite this advantage, living warcasters are a minority in Cryx; the lich lords seldom hesitate fully aware that useful servants can be restored to a semblance of life. Wraith Witch Deneghra is an example of a warcaster who different phase after her death and reanimation.

Lich lords and other leaders of the Cryxian empire often mark their thralls, helljacks, ships, and correspondence with these glyphs. This branding enables their subordinates, who might otherwise have difficulty telling one thrall from another, to identify legions belonging to different necromancers.

There is no inherent difference between the methods used by a naturally born warcaster and a lich lord warcaster talent than several other nations combined. The cortexes and arc nodes of bonejacks and helljacks have been designed to answer the mental commands of the undead as they would living warcasters. He saw the dread ship Atramentous sail into Darkmoor Harbor to greet the gathered pirate kings. To Asphyxious and the lich lords he gave the gift of steel.

Models entering or ending their activation in the AOE suffer 1 point of corrosion damage. His campaigns have carved out a bastion for Cryxian forces in the depths of the Thornwood. Asphyxious realized the true shape of ultimate power. The mortal druid spent his days witnessing the seminal acts by which the Cryxian Empire was born.

Yet once he was a powerful member of the enigmatic Circle Orboros. Asphyxious gains up to 7 focus points. The AOE is a cloud effect that remains in play for one round. When this model replenishes its focus during your next Control Phase. Renouncing his ancient vows. Toruk made no promises but challenged the mortal to prove his willingness Toruk scooped his bones from the caldera with one massive talon and blew a spark of unlife into them. On that day.

He looks to orchestrate the will of Toruk. Blackened corpses and bubbling pools of gore are all that remain of his victims. It is a shadow that will one day. The powerful iron carapace grants great physical strength. The demands of his iron body create a ravenous thirst for fresh souls.

A prime source of the cancer feeding upon western Immoren.


Asphyxious initiated the next stage of his inexorable plan. Cull Soul converts soul tokens gained from Soul Reaper into focus points. Lich Lord Asphyxious beckons forth his former servants for one last sally against his enemies.

Under the pretense of establishing a great necrofactorium beneath the Thornwood. Asphyxious still needs to be the closest soul-gathering model in order to gather the souls. Once in the inner circle of the lich lords. A model with Ghostly can advance through terrain and obstacles without penalty and can advance through obstructions if it has enough movement to move completely past them.

Asphyxious draws all he touches into webs of intrigue that blind even to further his schemes. The AOE remains in play for one round. A model entering or ending its activation in the AOE suffers 1 point of corrosion damage. For millennia Asphyxious has schemed.

Returned models gain Undead and Ghostly. Add the result to each Death Knell damage roll. Cull Soul — This model gains one soul token for each living enemy model destroyed within 2 of it. Returned models must charge during their activations and leave play at the end of this turn.

Asphyxious immediately initiated his next ambitious plan by negotiating the secret pact with the cephalyx. One of the latest to succumb to his machinations was the ancient and powerful Lich Lord Daeamortus. While within 5 of this model. The new Grunt can activate the turn it is put into play. The Grunt must be placed in formation and within 3 of this model. When a living enemy model is destroyed in the AOE. His cold genius has spawned unspeakable treachery.

Shrugging off this temporary setback. Caustic Mist lasts for one round. While the AOE is in play. Thousands fought and died at his behest to provide the souls necessary to power the device. He has not entirely surrendered his own aspirations for godlike power.

The lich lord himself stalks the his long shadow a plague of undead legions and promises of destruction. Without the aid of these alien beings. The Wraith Witch is his right hand his ever-growing storm. Skarre returned with her captive. Asphyxious shaped what was once frail and gentle into a cruelly sublime weapon. The Cryxian warwitches are cruel beyond comparison and willing to commit any act.

Adept at necromancy and blade. Then she ends the game with a single sweep of her mechanikal spear Sliver. She need but whisper and men claw at their skulls in vain attempts to silence the voice inside their minds.

Asphyxious took her personally under his wing and twisted the young woman into a phantasmal temptress—body. Occult portents unveiled by Skarre Ravenmane indicated a mortal birth of a sorceress with unbridled potential. Perversely angelic in her wicked beauty.

Deneghra blankets an area with a web of debilitating despair. The auguries had been vague. After informing her master Asphyxious of this the procurement of this precious asset personally. Rather than being a release. The few who succeed in staving off her seductions become her reluctant prey.

Models hit suffer the Corrosion Parry — This model cannot be targeted by free strikes. Wherever she travels. Shadow Bind expires after one round. Deneghra proved an apt pupil. Deneghra leaves a scorched path single-mindedly stalking each victim. An affected model cannot be targeted by free strikes. Asphyxious discovered the nature of these misread signs later. With mere spoken words and an arcane gesture.

She twirls.

Those wretches who fall to her spell would slit a familiar throat—comrade. Some scream in horror at her approach and others beg her for salvation. When the iron lich judged her ready.

What sucks about Warmachine

Parry — This model cannot be targeted by free strikes. It was with spiteful pride that Asphyxious granted the weapon of his hated foe to his prodigy. Her forces are without number. Deneghra wields the hell-wrought weapon Eclipse. But death has removed a certain haze from her mind even as it has sharpened her occult awareness. And both are matched only by her capacity for wickedness. Deneghra was content merely to carry out the designs of her master.

Her plots grow ever more far-reaching and dire. In life. She now moves to claim her place as one of the greatest commanders of Cryx. With the bestowal. Already a powerful and charismatic politician among the hallytyr. It might in time result in the restoration of his people and the power.

Ghyrrshyld was respected even by his enemies. Once blessed with longevity and perfect health. While in the melee range of a model with Dark Shroud. Ghyrrshyld took this one step further as he immersed himself in such lore in an effort to arrive at the root of the ills of his people and their gods.

Place one within 3 of Goreshade. Driven by desperation and consumed spend his hours expanding his power base within the house and studying the dark lore that obsessed him. It was the only way to drive them to act. The rest despaired that only oblivion would await them in the afterlife. Following the rise of magic among humankind.

Since the great cataclysm that had trapped the elven gods on Caen and led to the steady decline of their population.

Only decades ago. Shadowmancer lasts for one round. House Vyre had long possessed a pervasive mastery of occult secrets. When he began to speak of a new future for the Iosan people many listened.

He sought out the blasphemous secrets of the cult of Nyrro as well as tablets and transcriptions from the lost nation of Morrdh. I would damn his name. Upon hearing the news. In every instance. To have any chance of controlling its future. Lysevyn wept and cursed him as he stormed from the room with the infant.

Although House Vyre had traditionally favored the study of arcane and historical lore over the art and science of battle. While he was immersed in this research.

He crept into the depths of the forbidden ruins of the lost city of Eversael and. Instead they repeated their nation into civil war. Such is his mastery of the dark spirits of the void that he can raise armies of them almost at will. Still more terrible. These new oaths meant little to Goreshade.

Despite her preparations. Undeterred by their platitudes. Mortenebra slowly dissected it in her laboratory. Her peers accused her of paranoia conclusions as nothing less than the palpable guiding hand of Cyriss.
