Blackstone Fortress Book 2
Stripped of his titles and riches, rogue trader Janus Draik leads a desperate expedition into the Blackstone Fortress in an attempt to restore his fortunes and save Precipice from deadly peril.
READ IT BECAUSE
Get into the heart of Blackstone Fortress and discover the bonds between the explorers in a novel packed with action, intrigue and character drama.
Precipice is dying. For weeks, the space port has been battered by hellish geomagnetic storms, the work of sinister goings-on within the nearby Blackstone Fortress – a vast, ineffable creation that looms in the darkness of the void. Fragile alliances between Precipice’s xenos and human inhabitants crumble as the port’s docking points are destroyed, eroding any hope of escape.
Amid this bedlam, opportunistic rogue trader Janus Draik remains coolly unaffected. As an apocalyptic tempest threatens the life of his crew, Draik bitterly ponders a letter he has received from his father, disowning him and stripping him of his rank, titles and inheritance. In a last-ditch attempt to restore his fortune, Draik unites the disparate adventurers of Precipice to delve even deeper into the mysteries of the Blackstone Fortress. Once there, he learns of a threat that could endanger not just his own future, but the Imperium as a whole. Draik must mend the brittle bonds of trust, loyalty and respect between the survivors to destroy this abominable intelligence and avert disaster.

A Blackstone Fortress anthology
Many are the adventurers brave or mad enough to enter the Blackstone Fortress in search of riches, relics and secrets. Ratlings, robots and rogue traders – and more would-be heroes besides – all pursue their own agendas in a collection of action-packed short stories.
READ IT BECAUSE
Venture into the treacherous depths of the Blackstone Fortress in a collection of tales that showcase the many explorers in the alien labyrinth and their greatest – and most dangerous – adventures.
For uncountable ages the Blackstone Fortress has kept its watchful silence. It patiently waits, willing those brave enough to gamble everything exploring its halls. Only the most determined of adventurers will return with riches – the unworthy are never seen again. But to many, the rewards far outweigh the risks. Among the denizens of Precipice, ratlings, robots and rogue traders all pursue their own agendas, pitting themselves against the myriad forces of darkness that have claimed the fortress as their own. Deadliest of all is Obsidius Mallex, who aims to twist another Talisman of Vaul to Chaos’ unholy cause. Unless this traitor is stopped, the galaxy will burn beneath the wrath of the Ruinous Gods.

A Blackstone Fortress audio drama
A pair of explorers discover a dangerous, and invaluable, artefact deep in the Blackstone Fortress. Can they get it to safety? And even if they do, can they trust the allies they must rely upon to help them understand it?
LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE
Find out how some of the newer explorers in the Blackstone Fortress go about their adventures – and what they seek in the darkness. With thrilling action and character drama on the fortress and Precipice, this is a must-listen for all fans of the Blackstone Fortress game.
The Blackstone Fortress is silent no longer. Through heretical rituals, the followers of the risen Obsidius Mallex have activated more of the Talisman of Vaul’s apocalyptic weapons and created a corrupted citadel in the heart of the fortress itself. Where once only the most desperate and determined adventurers struck out into the Unfathomable in search of riches, now a new breed of explorer delves into the Blackstone to do battle with the forces of the Ruinous Powers. It is on one such expedition that Neyam Shai Murad and Gotfret de Montbard discover an artefact that could tip the balance of power, and save not only Precipice, but the Imperium itself…
Written by Chris Dows. Running time 55 minutes. Performed by Tom Alexander, Lanna Joffrey, Luis Soto and Andrew Wincott.
