Your virtual library just got bigger! In our continuing effort to make our wide range of RPGs more accessible to fans, we have just added two more Dark Heresy titles to the growing number of books available for pdf download!
Purge the Unclean is a trilogy of mystery, action, and horror! Step straight into the world of the Imperial Inquisition with this adventure anthology. Featuring three gripping stories, Rejoice for you are True, Shades on Twilight, and Baron Hopes, Purge the Unclean lets you explore the dark secrets of the Warhammer 40,000 universe like never before. Head over to drivethrurpg.com or rpgnow.com and start your download!
The Game Master’s Kit for Dark Heresy consists partly of a 32-page booklet with a full adventure, Xenos Generator, and new rules for poisons and toxins. You can now download this section of the Kit, along with the all the handy reference charts found on the folding GM screen, at drivethrurpg.com and rpgnow.com!
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.
The writable PDF's of the character sheet in the support section are not the character folio (the small booklet) that was published by Black Industries and FFG to record your character progression in. I too would love to see that little booklet as a writeable PDF file, much more useful than the paper version (which I do own, being a Dark Heresy completist).
Fantasy Flight Games already provides both printable and soft-copy-write-able PDFs of the character folios in the Support Section for Dark Heresy, the form-input soft-copy of the character sheet is fantastic.
The best feature of these soft-copy distribution would be the ability to search the document for key words.
This is cool and all, but what about the Vehicles Apocrypha? Id also would love to see a reprint of Purge the Unclean with all the adventures so far (other then the haarlock ones) in it.
Supporting PDF and print is smart. PDF is a lot easier to get into in terms of purchase.
I am a little curious as to why you didn't go with the Character Folio. As a printable PDF, that would be perfect, even if it wasn't form enabled (and a form-enabled version would be truly awesome).
Thanks FFG! These are both extremely useful releases!
Printable hand-outs are very helpful, and the ability to print or refer to the charts in the GM Kit during an adventure is extremely helpful.
I don't read anything into PDF releases, other than willingness to expand support for the game. There has always been a steady stream of folks complaining that they cannot obtain DH and RT product. I am sure that this will help them out. (In our area there is no supply problem and DH and RT both have strong presence on the shelf at B&N and Borders, plus at the comic/game retailers haunted by RPG players.)
WISH LIST: The two inside-front-cover maps from DH and RT, released as a two-sided color poster. I prefer this version of the map for my players, rather than the more authoritative version in the rules. A two-sided poster including the Korunus expanse and the Callixus sector would be awesome.
FFG can you please let us as customers know if this is working for you. Are PDFs selling better than the books. Why this move to PDFs? I am just curious, so don't read into it beyond that.
