So much has been forgotten.

No longer does humanity appreciate the wonders and promise of science or technology, for such things have long been supplanted by superstition. The achievements, struggles, and triumphs of ages past mean nothing now. All that matters now is survival: the survival of Mankind as a species.

Survival, in a universe ridden with mind-bending horrors the likes of which the human psyche was never meant to behold. A universe in which our race is but the flickering flame of a mere candle struggling to stay alight against the force of a mighty gale. A universe enveloped in brutal, unforgiving, unending war. War well beyond the comprehension of mortal men.

A war that we are losing.

But even in this bleak era, hope, though fleeting, remains. The glorious God-Emperor, carrion lord of all Mankind, still sits upon the Golden Throne of Terra. Though His body has long been ruined by the ravages of time, His soul lives on in another plane of existence, His unrivaled psychic abilities holding together the rotting Imperium of Man that he founded ages ago. So long as the Emperor remains a force in the universe, the Imperium of Mankind shall not fall.

But no one knows how long this shall last.

All accross our Milky Way galaxy, the servants of the God-Emperor work tirelessly to safeguard the Imperium from threats originating within, without, and beyond. They come in many forms, from the lowly men and women of the Planetary Defence Forces and the Imperial Guard, to the mighty Space Marines, the Emperor's legendary Angels of Death. All of them fight valiantly against impossible odds, for they dream of the day that humanity shall once again know solace from conflict.

But, for now, such a day is but a sweet, wishful dream.

Warhammer 40,000: Imperium of Blood is a fan-created expansion of the Warhammer 40,000 lore. It is the combined efforts of multiple users to contribute towards a shared, interconnected vision of the grim darkness of warfare in the 41st Millenium.

Warhammer 40,000: Imperium of Blood is an expanded universe, NOT an alternate universe.
It does not deviate from the established lore, but rather expands upon it. As such, all works within Imperium of Blood are expected to conform to the rules and limitations of the Warhammer 40,000 universe as they have been established by Games Workshop.

IMPORTANT NOTE
In Imperium of Blood, we firmly believe that neither creativity nor quality should be sacrificed merely because we cannot build concrete rules to accommodate them. As such, in Imperium of Blood, rules CAN and WILL be interpreted liberally and on a highly situational basis. One rule may be interpreted strictly in one situation and it may also be bent somewhat in another. If you have a problem with this, then Imperium of Blood is not for you. Also, we may in some situations reserve the right to collectively veto an idea "just because it doesn't work", and in others allow an unconventional idea to be fleshed out because we collectively believe that it can work if written properly. If you also find this bothersome, you may similarly want to reconsider joining. All rules can be considered suggestions more than anything else, and the collective opinion of the Imperium of Blood users holds weight over all. We believe that this works because IoB is merely a group writing project, not government or anything else which requires clear and concrete rules. Do note, however, that these conditions ONLY apply to Imperium of Bloods internal rules; site policy will still be held to as strictly and consistently as possible.


  1. You may not majorly impact the Warhammer 40,000 setting as a whole. Imperium of Blood adheres firmly to the "Your Dudes" perception of the setting, and as such, we believe that Warhammer 40,000 is a sandbox in which to tell stories, and that advancing the storyline of the setting as a whole is a bad idea. Thus, you may NOT majorly impact the setting. Additionally, while your characters may interact with canon characters or take part in canon events, they may not majorly affect them, so no telling the Dark Angels that Cypher is actually seeking redemption or that Lion El'Jonson is somewhere aboard The Rock, and no claiming that the Cryptus Campaign was won in large part thanks to your Blood Angels successor chapter. This is the rule that we will be least flexible about.
  2. Matters upon which canon material is contentious or vague should not be touched upon. This means no stating whether or not the Alpha Legion are truly loyalist or traitor, no telling whether or not the Lamenters were destroyed, et cetera.
