About the adventure

Game meeting time and frequency to be determined by players. *"You are an Acolyte in the service of the Emperors Inquisition. You stand in the front line of a great and secret war where your duty is to hunt out the foul stench of heresy, the vile alien, and the twisted influence of Chaos. You will tread where others fear, venturing to distant planets, ancient space hulks and the unsavory depths of the under-hive. You will never know fame, yet if you stand resolute your deeds will be whispered to the God-Emperor of Mankind."* This can be either **first or second edition Dark Heresy by Fantasy Flight Games**, depending on the vote of the players. I love both. I will be able to share materials with you to run this game in either case. The campaign will be a mix of home-brew and pre-made adventures, and there will also be an overarching meta-plot based on the character's backstories and goals, which of course I must wait to construct depending on what you create.

Gameplay details

This game focuses on investigation in a dystopian horror science fiction environment. As protagonists in this setting, you are encouraged to be morally grey (whether light or dark grey) anti-heroes, rather than noble-bright heroes or despicable villains. Any 'alignment' is welcome, but role play, and group cohesion, will vary in difficulty depending on your outlook. The 'Film Rating' for this game, as well as almost any narrative media in the Warhammer 40k setting, is intrinsically R. It's pretty much baked into the mechanics such as the critical hit system, and the 'grim dark' of the setting. Please be ok with this. GM/DM Standards & Expectations:
