“You must face the truth squarely and without flinching from duty. Our enemies are mortal no longer. Any glimpse of humanity they may show is merely a deception. Dedicate this weapon, given into your hand at the behest of the Emperor, to their destruction. Regard its function as your only duty: you live only to purge the Daemon. Take up your rod and staff, your armour and psycannon, and go forth.”
–Lectures to the Ordo, Inquisitor Galbus Heer
Daemon Hunter, a supplement for Dark Heresy, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! The Inquisitors of the Ordo Malleus and the Space Marines of the Grey Knights are the chosen warriors of the God-Emperor, tasked with keeping humanity from falling into darkness. They hunt tirelessly to rid the Imperium of their collective prey: Daemons.
Daemon Hunter is a powerful resource for any Dark Heresy campaigns featuring the servants of the holy Ordo Malleus of the Inquisition. With information and background on the Ordo Malleus in the Calixis Sector, the Daemon hunter’s trade, and the Malleus armoury, Daemon Hunter is the perfect companion for players and GMs alike who wish to craft exciting campaigns for Dark Heresy.
Learn the ropes of daemon hunting with an extensive look at the origins and status of the Ordo Malleus. Then, take up arms as an acolyte in service to the Ordo Malleus by becoming a Banisher, taking the fight to the daemons. Also, learn the tools of the trade by studying the Malleus Armoury, which presents new tools for every tier of character.
Finally, Daemon Hunter includes everything players and GMs need to include Grey Knights into their Dark Heresy campaigns!
The Mighty Grey Knights
Dark Heresy's developer took a moment to share his insights on the design process of Daemon Hunter:
Throughout the development and testing process of Daemon Hunter, the Dark Heresy Development Team was embarrassingly giddy over the stories that the talented pool of writers created for the Ordo Malleus in the Calixis Sector. From the Scholariate at Arms (a new faction within the Ordo Malleus) to the Grey Knights, every page has as much information as we could fit onto it. New Acolyte alternate career ranks, cell directives, and equipment fill this hefty tome.
Of course you can’t have Daemon Hunters without daemons! The Daemonic Incursion chapter (written by Charles May and Ross Watson) gives GMs the tools to generate daemons with a variety of power levels and horrible tricks. Lesser Daemons, Heralds, and Greater Daemons are all as easy to create as an Acolyte, with a wide range of theme and combat strategy. Whether the GM needs a Bloodletter forged from blood and brass to challenge a group of Acolytes or a Keeper of Secrets to fight a squad of Grey Knights, the GM will never run out of daemons.
Oh... did we mention Grey Knights? The Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay community has had a lot of fun taking up the mantle of a Deathwatch Space Marine, and now they get the chance to take on the role of a Grey Knight. Daemon Hunter presents rules compatible with Dark Heresy for both PC and NPC Grey Knights. There are also additional rules and advice for including Grey Knights in a campaign using the Deathwatch Rulebook instead.
