|Dark Heresy | Published 30 March 2011|
The hand appears to have a fraction of malign intelligence within it. It speaks to those it believes it can corrupt. Attempts to silence its voice have proven useless. Currently Savant-Militant Grendel is engaged in a struggle of wills with the dark entity that now takes home within. He is one of the fair few trained in the psychic arts required to hold the beast at bay. I have sequestered the acolyte Grendel in an airlock aboard the Righteous Indignation. I am monitoring him as I decipher Thrungg’s journal and should he lose control I will jettison him into the void and instruct the captain to purge his remains. It will not be a permanent end to the artefact, but it will buy us, according to my research, a thousand years and a day.
– From the correspondence of Binder Morgaine
When a decadent noble uncovers a heretical artefact of dark origins, the Inquisition is sent on an investigation from his palace to a lost fortress on a distant world. Can you solve the mysteries of the Haematite Cathedral before it’s too late, and uncover a conspiracy that threatens to set the Calixis Sector ablaze?

I, on the other hand, will gladly blind buy this. I am on a subscription for 40K RPG stuff with my local game store. When new stuff arrives, they (he, actually) drops me an email and I come and pick it up.
So far, I have not seen anything really bad in the various 40K RPG lines. Some of the stuff is more useful, some perhaps a bit less (or in need of errata). Still, I think its worth buying. Even if I might not run a specific printed adventure or campaign (or use a specific monster), it is still useful as inspiration or at least interesting to read.
Right now, my main problem is finding time to play. Books and ideas are piling up. But that is a luxury problem :)
You aren´t talking about "The Church", aren´t you? Just purchased it cheap...but did not watched it yet.
After TF and will wait till the first solid previews are around. Or it is in a shelf in a store near me... no more blind buys.
Already ordered but not from FFG. I like my books a little less pricey and with lower shipping fees and sent after I order them.
The plot sounds like an old horror movie's! KWL - Hammer lives!
