The Skaven do not exist!
Or at least that's what the Empire wants you to believe. Often confused with Beastmen, the Skaven are no mindless horde of ravaging beasts, but rather a sinister force plotting the downfall of the Empire. Between the manufactured plagues, their Warpstone technology, and the mutated monstrosities that stalk the byways of the Under-Empire, the threat of a Skaven invasion has never been more real. Children of the Horned Rat reveals the secret world of the loathsome ratmen, serving as the essential guide to all things Skaven. Inside this exciting tome, you'll find everything you ever wanted to know and more, including:
• Extensive information on how the Skaven are perceived in the Old World, including myths and legends.
• A physiological overview of the Skaven, with notes on the various breeds of the foul Ratmen.
• A detailed history of the Skaven, and full disclosure on Skaven society.
• An examination of the Great Clans, and detailed descriptions of Skaven settlements.
• New Skaven weapons and extensive rules on Skaven Magin, including a slew of new spells.
• Guidelines for playing Skaven characters, several new monsters, and an all new adventure.
