A Blood-Red Moon Rises Over the Armies of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning as the Night of Murder Approaches

The armies of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning have plenty to fight over– but starting Friday, February 6th, their bloodlust will rise to a boil as the Night of Murder descends upon the world. Lasting until February 15th, the Night of Murder is a live event that blurs the differences between Good and Evil beneath a crimson haze as the forces of Order and Destruction fulfill deadly tasks in service of the Elf god Khaine.

By completing event tasks detailed in the Tome of Knowledge, players will earn influence with Khaine– influence that will grant them access to exclusive rewards, including the Shadowbane Potion that grants the title of“The Murderous,” or the powerful Talisman of Fell Whispers. To earn Khaine’s favor, members of each realm will be tasked with, among other things, finding and killing enemy targets who have been“marked for death”– including enemy players. On this dark holiday, none are immune to the will of Khaine.
