The Realms of Chaos duology is pair of splatbooks for early-edition Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and Warhammer 40,000 that examines in greater detail the nature, stats and lore of the forces of Chaos. It also introduced the new pseudo-gameline Path to Glory, which allows you to play a Chaos Champion seeking to ascend to the ranks of the Daemon Princes. The duology consists of Slaves to Darkness and The Lost and the Damned.
