Announcing Ascension, an upcoming supplement for Dark Heresy
Dark Heresy | Published 17 December 2009

Fantasy Flight Games proudly announces the latest supplement to join the Dark Heresy collection, Ascension!

Ascension takes your Acolytes to the next tier of power in the Calixis Sector. Learn to wield the authority of an Inquisitor’s rosette, join the elite Storm Troopers, or discover the secrets of technology known only to a Magos of the Lathe Worlds.

It is time to take your rightful place amongst the ranks of the Holy Inquisition itself! No longer are you a pawn. You’ll find advanced character generation, including transition packages to take your Dark Heresy characters from Acolytes to Throne Agents—and even the position of Inquisitor. Eleven other Ascended Careers include the mysterious Sage and the formidable Vindicare Assassin!

New Ascended Psychic Powers abound, plus a section on ascended adversaries... from Greater Daemons to renegade Imperial Governors. You’ll also find systems of influence and reputation for a different scale of wealth and power in the Imperium, plus Paragon Talents and Mastered Skills to enhance your character’s abilities.

This spring, Ascension will take your Dark Heresy campaign to greater heights of power, responsibility, and peril in the grim darkness of the far future!

Dark Heresy is a roleplaying game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, a setting in the grim darkness of the far future. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man.

This sounds awesome. I only hope you guys have plenty more books on the way, Ross. I'd hate to see a Dark Heresy 2.0 released anytime soon (especially if it was in the boardgame format of Warhammer Fantasy RPG.) Also, Loving the Haarlocks Legacy! Can't wait for more campaign suppliments.

One very important word, "When?" If the upcoming section of the site is to be trusted, then it should already be out. American Winter 2009 is over in a couple of days.

I just hope this doesn't end up like the Creatures Anthema, a waste of my money. That book really did not have the content to be worth that price.

To think that I could not get more excited about Creatures Anathema; Ascension sounds amazing.

Vindicare Assassin ... mmmm.

It'll be nice to have the class, given that Dak has been given invitation to join their ranks.

That is cool!

We are going to start playing Dark Heresy in the next months so we are not needing this right now... but we usually do very very long campaigns so this is going to be very useful in the next future.

Time to start making sure I've got some characters (mine and for my group) that can make use of this when it rolls around!

 My head just exploded!

Awesome, can't wait to get hold of it Ross!

Well it's about friggen time.  Rogue Trader had some interesting ideas but the scale of it feels all wrong to our group.  DH is in our opinion a much better level of play but the caps needed to be extended.   Finally we are getting that.  Awesome.
