• A novella that tells the story of Dreadfleet, written by Game Designer Phil Kelly and published by the Black Library. • A fantastic additional sale for the Dreadfleet game.

Exclusive extract from Phil Kelly’s Dreadfleet novella
Reloading, Roth looked around at the raging battle. Gunners writhed in pools of their own blood amidst shattered piles of debris. Loose groups of swordsmen fought like daemons to repel the men o’ bones who had spilled onto the Heldenhammer’s deck from the Reaver’s crags, cracking skulls and kicking through rib cages as they pushed the invaders back. To starboard, the Flaming Scimitar was giving the Nehekharan war galley a wide berth. A clutch of cannonballs thundered from the pleasure barge’s hidden guns and tore into the statue-lined galley’s stern, just as a giant of living fire burst out from the Golden Magus’s minarets towards the enemy warship. It bore down on the Nehekharan ship, a burning sword in either hand. Just as the fire djinn swooped down to incinerate the war galley’s skeletal crew, the beast-headed statuary ranged alongside the galley’s flanks jerked into life. The foremost amongst them, a jackal-headed giant of green marble, raised its gigantic blade, slashing at the flaming djinn as it passed overhead. The spirit burst apart in a fireball the size of the Grand Templus, incinerating dozens of skeletal figures on the decks below. The Bloody Reaver continued to grind its way along the length of the Heldenhammer, opening a series of terrible wounds along the temple-ship’s flank. Roth saw a figure in a red bicorn staring down at him from atop the craggy mass of the Reaver’s stone heart. He raised his thrice-pistol and loosed off a shot, a triple puff of smoke impacting on the cliff where Noctilus had been standing.


‘Die, fiend! Shoot the sorcerers, men. Kill anything that talks.’
