BL: Advent 2017 – Day 22 “A Lesson in Darkness”

3 Minute Read
Dec 22 2017

Take a look at the darker side of the Imperium. Konrad Curze is the darkness. He is the night.

If you’ve been waiting to get caught-up on your fill of Black Library back-stories and lore then now is the time of year to jump in. Running from December 1st until December 24th, Black Library will have something to read, listen to, or just check out for all things Games Workshop. You can grab them individually or pick up the whole thing as part of the Advent Calendar Subscription.

Konrad Curze is the night (haunter). Watch what happens when he comes to some poor tranquil peaceful planet that thinks it might be good to have their own sovereignty, especially since they never heard of this Imperium before. No thank you, we gave at the office.


So. Get ready to ride and sing a slaying song tonight, is what I’m saying.

A Lesson in Darkness $3.99

A Primarchs audio drama

A world refuses unity, preferring to remain free of mankind’s Imperium. But that cannot be tolerated. And so the Night Lords arrive to take the peaceful planet by force…

Ian St Martin sets his dark side loose in a sinister tale of the Night Lords and their monstrous commander, the Night Haunter himself.

Piamen is a tranquil world in the far reaches of the galaxy. Since throwing off the yoke of alien invaders, they have remained free and peaceful… until the coming of the Imperium. When they refuse to join mankind’s star-spanning empire, a force of Legiones Astartes is despatched to bring the planet to compliance. And when the Night Lords come, darkness falls. Piamen will never be the same…

Written by Ian St Martin
Running time: 27 minutes. Performed by John Banks, Beth Chalmers, Matthew Hunt, Jonathan Keeble and Toby Longworth.
