Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is the first comic set in Warhammer Online. In this comic, gamers get to see what the game is all about. The comic starts after the events of the previous Fall of the Lich King. Here, the story will follow the conflict between the Empire and the Thousand Sons. Players can choose whether to side with the Empire or the Chaos army.
This exciting comic is written by Chris Roberts, who is well known for his other popular games such as Wing Commander, and Quantum Caverns. He has also written several comics relating to Warhammer Online. This is the first story he has written regarding the new Age of Reckoning expansion. There are many familiar faces in this comic, and players can get a look at the dynamic story-line. This includes Highlord Tirion Fordring, leader of the Silver Hand who has been promoted to Grandlord; his loyal knight Tasslem, who joins him after the death of his brother Nizel; and Mechanic Karthas, a member of the Iron Legion.
The story is told through the point of view of Fordring's character. He tells how he came to be a Lord of the Silver Hand, and how his kingdom was being destroyed by the enemy. He then goes on to lead his men in a frontal assault against the enemy. They succeed in capturing Fort Vervunhen, but are beaten back at the gate. With the support of his new recruits, they fight their way to the fortress, and end up losing the battle.
With his troops killed, and the threat of darkness looming over the horizon, the rightful ruler of Silvermoon calls upon the armies of the Thousand Sons to do his bidding. However, the sons refuse, and destroy the city. With only a few thousand souls left, the only way to save the city is if the armies join together. In this comic, Tirion, Tasslem and Karthas agree to work together in order to defeat the enemy. They form the Defias Fleet.
The comic begins with the fleets of the Defias Fleet attacking the pirates of the Caladron corporation. During the battle, Darion gets injured in the battle. As a result, he is taken to a monastery, where he becomes obsessed with learning the skills needed to defeat the Burning Legion. One of these skills is the sharding of the soul. As a result, Darion transforms into a demon.
After Darion transforms into a demon, a team consisting of other members of the Defias forces attacks the Lich King himself. As the combined force of the forces surrounds the King, he teleports himself away. However, the group soon learns that the King is already there, engaging them in single combat. With the help of crypt lord, the group is able to kill the King and free the imprisoned demon elves. The comic ends with the Lich King himself escaping from his castle, having left his son, Abbot, alone. The events in the Starhammer Comic indicate that the forces of the Worldstone were able to defeat the Legion.
Following the defeat of the Legion, the Starhammer Comic series features several other storylines. One of these storylines is the Age of Wonders series. This series focuses on human magic resistance against the impending magical war against the Legion. In the series, humans are allied with the Dwarfs against the Lich King.
The most interesting series in the Starhammer Universe is the Ultimate Alliance series, which features both the original races from the game as well as a few new ones. The main character in this series is Grand Widow careers, who is the head of an organization called the Golden Spears. Although she herself is not a immortal, she uses a special gem called the Starstone to link her to other living beings.
