The Frozen Reaches is an adventure for Rogue Trader that throws the Explorers before an impending Ork invasion as they work to save the planet of Damaris. But first, they will need to organize squabbling factions and establish a united front. This is no easy task, as powerful forces are working against them from the shadows...

Use all your charm and influence to prepare a planet’s defences as the Ork fleets close in on Damaris. Fight the xenos in space aboard the bridge of your starship, or meet the bloody Orks in brutal hand-to-hand combat on the ground! The choices you make ensure success, or guarantee defeat. Choose wisely, and reap the rewards of your victory.

The Frozen Reaches can be played as a standalone adventure, but the events and characters it introduces are only the beginning. The Warpstorm Trilogy, an epic series of adventures, centers on the exploits of the Explorers as they uncover a great mystery that threatens the entire Expanse.

Do you have what it takes to brave the dangers of a warpstorm?
