AoSRPG: Neue Archetypen vorgestellt
Cubicle7 stellen auf Facebook neue Archetypen für das kommende Warhammer Age of Sigmar Pen and Paper vor.
Cubicle 7 producer Emmet Byrne discusses a previously revealed Archetype for Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound — the deadly Witch Aelf of the Daughters of Khaine.
Cold and Merciless
A bloodthirsty zealot of Khaine you exist to nourish the bloody-handed god, one blood sacrifice at a time.
Few of the mortal races can match the Aelves for agility or grace, but there are few even amongst the Aelves who can rival the lethal sublimity of a Witch Aelf of Khaine. For them the shedding of blood is an ecstatic act, and even their combat exercises are imbued with the weight and deadly seriousness of sacred rites. Though most right-thinking folk find the Khainites’ practices deeply disturbing, there is no organisation outside of the Stormhosts of Azyr more fiercely opposed to the encroachment of Chaos and few boasting warriors so deadly. Temples to the Murder God can be found in most Free Cities, the most famous being run by the larger Khainite sects such as Hagg Nar, Khelt Narr, or Draichi Ganeth. There are, however, innumerable smaller sects, each with their own favoured way of giving proper honour to the god of Murder.
“I know they look cold now, son, but wait until that brayherd comes over the hill and the blood starts spraying – just thank Sigmar they’re on our side, and that the captain put us on the other side of the battlefield.” – Freeguild Sergeant Hallas Farrim
While many Witch Aelves will be based with their coven in their sect temples, others, such as the Khailebron or the Kraith, are devoted wanderers, performing as blade dancers or gladiatorial fighters throughout the Mortal Realms. Additionally, every Khainite is expected to make a pilgrimage to the first temple of Hagg Nar in the Umbral Veil of Ulgu at least once in their life. Their society is strictly hierarchical however and an individual Witch Aelf would likely require special dispensation from her Hag Queen in order to go adventuring of her own volition. As an alternative, they could be assigned as emissaries or spies to one of the Free Cities, or dispatched on a quest to recover an artefact of import – perhaps even one of the priceless Shards of Khaine.

Today we’re revealing a brand new Archetype for Age of Sigmar: Soulbound — the relentless Soulscyrer of the Idoneth Deepkin!
Seekers and Guides
A diviner and an arcane tracker, by the light of their soul you hunt your quarry from across any distance.
A Soulscryer can see even in pitch darkness, able to navigate across any distance and through any obstacle if guided by the light of a single mortal soul. The Soulscryers are the priests of the Idoneth enclaves. To them falls the responsibility for guiding travellers through the whirlways, communicating with their fellow Soulscryers in distant enclaves, and divining the unfortunate targets of their Akhelian’s next raids. Many Soulscryers will accompany the Idoneth phalanxes, guiding them unerringly towards the battlefield and, once there, singling out the strongest souls for plunder. Others are more circumspect, highly adept at divining the true nature of another beings soul, and it is soulscryers such as these who will mark young Idoneth as being Isharannor Akhelion. Those Soulscryers of a more aggressive character may, in time, find themselves drawn to the path of the Soulrender, a more combative breed of Isharann with the power of ripping a mortal’s soul from their body.
“You cannot run from the Briomdar. Their soulscryers could follow the soul of a fly through the Garden of Nurgle. And guide the phalanx there to retrieve it.”
– Lurien Soultaker, King of Briomdar
The Idoneth are an insular people with next to no interest in material wealth or dealings with those from beyond their watery borders. However, many enclaves, particularly the outward-looking Ionrach and their descendants, see the benefit in maintaining limited relations with trusted allies. The Soulscryer’s ability to maintain a magical connection with their home enclave makes them perfectly suited to such roles. Their ability to locate and find a single soul from anywhere in the Realms makes them highly sought after by the likes of Witch Hunters or just about anyone with an individual to track down or a grudge to settle. A Soulrender, meanwhile, might be content to prowl a Free City to plunder the souls of its dregs, or join a party of like-minded adventurers to terrorise a common foe.
