Hello Dark Heresy fans!
I just spent an amazing weekend recently at HeroCon in Glen Burnie, Maryland. I ran a Dark Heresy adventure (“Jurisdiction,” by Sean Schoonmaker) which included some of the forum-goers here at the Fantasy Flight Games forums (thanks, peacekeeper_b!). Much retribution was brought to many heretics, and a good time was had by all.
I also got to play in a Dark Heresy game (“Dark Secrets” by Stephen J. Furlani, also a forum-ite) wherein I played the hard-bitten Arbitrator who couldn’t seem to shoot straight! Dark Secrets was an amazing game with a truly Warhammer 40,000 ending, and I had a fantastic time.
In addition, I got a chance to show folks the new Dark Heresy book, Disciples of the Dark Gods. The reactions were very positive, and I’m very excited about this book myself. In fact, I’ve put together a special downloadable preview of the book! This preview showcases The Beast House, a mysterious organization infamous for smuggling xenos beasts and running underground bloodsport arenas across the Calixis sector. You can download the preview here.
Recently, I went though my enormous stack of White Dwarf magazines dating back to the late 80’s. There’s a wealth of great pictures, battle reports, and more inside those pages that really makes me appreciate the Warhammer 40,000 setting even more. They’re also a great source for inspiration! My only problem now is finding a good place to store them, as the magazines are now currently taking over most of my living room...
<<The Next Step>>
Coming soon is more information about Creatures Anathema, a bestiary book for Dark Heresy that includes aliens, beasts, and daemons of the Calixis Sector. I can hardly wait to tell you about some of the really cool bits inside this book, such as the Death world section, or...well, the Inquisition won’t like it if I give too much away too early. Keep your eyes on this space for more about Creatures Anathema soon!
