About the event


Due to overwhelming interest in the campaign (thank you!) campaign meetings have now been split into two session. This will allow us to more comfortable accomodate all players and provide the best game experience possible. With this change, we are requesting that all interested players RSVP in advance to the session they plan to attend. Advance RSVP will guarentee your spot in your selected session. We will do our best to accomodate walk-in players, but cannot guarentee a table without an advance RSVP. If you would like to attend both game sessions, you are welcome to RSVP to both session. 

In the grim darkness of the far future, a new chapter unfolds as the Imperium faces an imminent threat. In the hive-infested reaches of the galactic fringe, the insidious tendrils of the Tyranid Hive Fleets have begun to descend upon the Imperium's outer colonies. As the Hive Mind hungers for biomass, a desperate struggle for survival ensues.

Join Side Quest Games and Accessories for "The Darkening Shadow" a thrilling Warhammer 40,000 narrative campaign set against the backdrop of this relentless Tyranid onslaught. Players will command armies from various factions, each vying for dominance in the face of an overwhelming xenos threat. The sprawling hives teem with danger as the forces of the Imperium, Chaos, Eldar, and more, clash amidst the twisted spires of bio-infested battlegrounds.

As the Tyranid forces evolve and adapt with each engagement, commanders must navigate a dynamic battlefield where alliances are forged, betrayals unfold, and the fate of entire worlds hangs in the balance. The campaign unfolds across a series of interconnected missions, each influencing the overarching narrative and shaping the destiny of the war-torn sector.

Prepare for a narrative-rich experience that explores the depths of the Tyrannic War setting, where heroes rise and fall, and the galaxy trembles in the face of an alien menace. Will the Imperium stand united against the swarm, or will the hive shadows consume all in their path? The fate of the sector lies in the hands of the commanders brave enough to enter the fray.
