Greetings, Dark Heresy fans!

It has been an amazing experience since the release of Ascension! The book is a smashing success, has garnered excellent reviews, and has sparked huge interest. Of course, I am particularly proud of Ascension, and I would like to take a moment to give my sincere thanks to the writing and development team of “Project Rose”:

Owen Barnes, Alan Bligh, John French, Andy Hoare, and Sam Stewart

I am deeply grateful for all their help, and their paragon talent of “Write Sourcebook” is crucial to how the book turned out.

I would be remiss without mentioning the playtesters and proofreaders; their contributions are critical to Ascension’s success, and I am very appreciative of all their help!

Ascension is probably the most significant release for Dark Heresy since the core rulebook, and I couldn’t be happier with its reception so far. I’ve been inspired by many of the concepts and ideas in Ascension moving forward and I’m very excited about the future of Dark Heresy! On the horizon are plenty of new books and releases for Acolytes and Throne Agents alike, so keep an eye on the Fantasy Flight Games web site for more details in the future!

Heed the Higher Call

As a special bonus, this week I am pleased to present Heed the Higher Call, an 18-page free .pdf, chock-full of additional material for Ascension. Enjoy!

Heed the Higher Call - web quality (.pdf, 2.9 MB)

Heed the Higher Call - print quality (.pdf, 100.4 MB)

The Next Step

Coming next week, a downloadable character sheet for Ascension and even more additional content!

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.

 Hi Guys,

Just a quick update: it turns out that, during layout, a page of text in the story of Inquisitor Starkh was accidentally left out. That has since been corrected and the current files available for download contain the entire text of Inquisitor Starkh's missive. Enjoy!

I don't think I am: one second the author is on Baraspine, the next second he's on Scintilla. There's a sentence in the middle of the passage that doesn't make any sense at all.

You're missing the understanding that The Stranger is Starkh's Trial by Fire.  The Stranger always seemed to be one step ahead of the Interrogator, and it was an aparrently serendipitous sighting of The Stranger on the spire, that brought Starkh to the location of his Ascension.

The background section seems to be missing a big chunk of text: it goes straight from confronting the mysterious "Stranger" to the author's ascension to Inquisitorial rank mid-sentence...

Thanks for the updated info.  My campaign will be starting the Haarlock storyline and will transition to Ascended Characters after completing (hopefully) Tattered Fates.  Good way to strip them of they old gear and start anew.
