    About the adventure

    This game will introduce players to the world of Warhammer 40,000 and the game of Dark Heresy. In this game, players are Acolytes of a powerful Inquisitor. At the behest of their Inquisitor, your job is to identify and remove elements which imperil humanity. However, Inquisitors often have different ideas about what humanity's dangers are, and this can cause conflict between them. The players are acolytes assigned to an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor in the aftermath of the Tau's Fourth Sphere of Expansion. Set on a recently liberated desert shrine world, they are tasked with retrieving a small Tau military device that has been found by a local youth. This youth is from the generation that escaped the war, but could not escape the aftermath. As the planet is re-integrated into imperial space, various imperial organizations compete with each other for control over the planet. Amidst all this, darker forces are also moving to seal its fate...

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players should have a mic, but a webcam is not necessary. I will have a webcam. Players do not need to have read the rules, but they should have a character prior to the first session. A link to roll20 and the discord will be provided upon access to the game. Players do not need to read the rules or create characters, but they are welcome to do so.

    What I provide

    Dark Heresy 2e Core Rulebook and all supplements. Roll20 maps, tokens, and suitable music I'm not the best voice actor, but I try!

    Gameplay details

    Lines and Veils will be discussed prior to play and X,N, and O cards can be handled publically or privately (through PM). My games are LGBTQ+ friendly and I do not tolerate racism or bullying. The 41st millenium is a dystopic universe and that should be at the forefront of our minds. We are roleplaying people in an inhuman universe and we should center that humanity in our games. My DMs are always open with any concerns. The game will be organized through Discord and run through Roll20.

    How will character creation work

    Character creation will be handled on an individual basis where I will guide you through the process of creating a character. If you do not want to create a character, I have a handful of pre-made characters
