3 Minute Read
Dec 24 2017

Slip into Shadespire with an elegiac, mournful tale told to you, dear listeners.

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.

Today’s tale is a story of Shadespire. Of immortal elves trapped for eternity in an undying city from which there is no escape. It all sounds very mythical, so, take my advice and never look behind you or eat pomegranates.

The Autumn Prince $3.99

A Warhammer Age of Sigmar audio drama

An aelven wanderer prince seeks to wrest the secret of cheating death from one of the Katophranes in Shadespire. But why does a nigh-immortal aelf seek power over death?

Guy Haley relates a haunting elegy showing the universality of suffering and the power of death and the promise of escaping its embrace.

Lured into the cursed city of Shadespire by the promise of the secret of cheating death, the aelf wanderer Prince Maesa seeks the Katophrane Thanaton. Surrounded by the spirits of the dead who cannot die, trapped in the last moments before the city’s destruction, Maesa nears his goal… but just why does a nigh-immortal aelf seek this power over death?


Written by Guy Haley
Running time: 28 minutes. Performed by John Banks, Beth Chalmers, Matthew Hunt, Jonathan Keeble and Toby Longworth.
