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.
Nice thing. Thank you FFG for clarifying case with Magos and Reputation, and adding Exotic Weapon Training (Exitus Weapons) for Vindicare. Its nice to know they were quickly covered.
I agree with other comments, that it would be nice to know the course FFG is taking with DH and Ascension.
Nice addition (or pseudopreview as I don´t have the book yet:( ), but I would be realy fond of some new free.download ascended careers, let´s say Explicator, Callidus Assasin and Lord General (can´t man have a dreams?)
Oh, and announcment of new supplements would be sweet. Waiting for Puritans Handbook, Throne Agent´s Handbook, Dark Gods Themselves and How was it realy with Haarlock :)
It will be great, if you'd explained your design ideas to us, GMs and players of DH. Not all of us are fond of Ascension, you know...
As I suspected... the future of Dark Heresy is Ascension. Not that I'm complaining. I want more of this! This is exactly how I wrote my HERO System conversion. (this level of play, I mean).
I can't wait!
