|Rogue Trader | Published 08 September 2010|
“That which I do not possess, I crave. That which I cannot claim, I despise. That which I should not know, I am compelled to learn. That which I own, I tire of. And that which I once called mine, I mourn. Is it the nature of man to desire that which we lack; a sense of untamed curiosity and unrestrained greed that drives us to have more than we need and need more than we have? Is it a curse, that we seek the unknown against all better judgement and heedless of cost? Or is it merely the darker part of ambition, the cost of our aspirations to become greater? I know not... for curiosity is something I possess in abundance, and thus I care not to look upon it when I can look to newer things.”
–Excerpt from the Journal of Parsimus Dewain

Very Nice. This should be great!
The Second Child in Line (RT) gets it's due!
Here's hopeing its as kwl as "Lure."
Another book for my list. Sounds very useful to me.
This was a great book to playtest, so I can't wait to see the finished article!
FFG made up the Kornous Expanse just for Rogue Trader right?
Excited for this line more than Dark Heresy.
Edge of the Abyss is very much the Disciples of the Dark Gods equivalent for Rogue Trader; it has write-ups of many worlds because new worlds to explore is a key element of Rogue Trader games, just as aliens and other enemies are.
It was also great fun to write, and contains plenty of new information about the Koronus Expanse and the creatures within.
Sounds good. Hope fall isnt too far off.
Looks like this will be my Xmas present to myself this year!
Agreed, will have to put my players through some devilish tasks with the help of this book. Culln out.....
Sounds nice. I hope they have some similiar "world book" in planing for DH and the Calixis sector. Every GM is happy to be handed a "sandbox" into which he is able to his/her plots, npc, pc...and of course, a big shovel of sandpie!
Really looking forward to this one! Can´t wait!
