From the introduction:
The Old World of Warhammer Fantasy is dark and grim place where people often fall victim to disease, war, corruption or worse; the Ruinous powers.
This playset focuses on the Empire, where humans, dwarves, halflings, ogres, high- and wood elves meet. In this stewpot of corruption, dark needs and unthinkable lusts the players can take on roles as humans worshiping the Ruinous Powers, greedy dwarves, scheming elves or any other role in this perilous world.
This playset also features a slightly modified tilt table to include some elements of the Warhammer world.
