Unlike the rest of the Dark Crusade, who long to pass over the boundary of life to embrace eternal undeath, the blood cultists cling to life for as long as possible by stealing the life force of others. Long answering to the powerful necromancers of the deathspeakers, the followers of the blood goddess have now uncovered lost secrets of their ancient faith allowing them to awaken the legendary Bloody Amara. With the support of his power and powerful spells of their own, the blood cultists are finally becoming a power in their own right--and may soon answer only to themselves.
