Greetings, Dark Heresy fans!
The climactic finale to the Haarlock’s Legacy trilogy looms on the horizon! In Dead Stars, the unspeakable secrets of Rogue Trader Solomon Haarlock are revealed at last, and the Acolytes investigating his disappearance must make a dire choice that will affect the future for millions of Imperial citizens. With the fate of the entire Calixis Sector at stake, will the Acolytes stand in the way of Haarlock’s return, or will they allow the consequences of his vengeance? Find out in Dead Stars!
A New Challenger Appears!
Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay, including the Dark Heresy, Deathwatch, and Rogue Trader lines, has been experiencing some amazing success. In fact, they have been so successful that FFG has recently hired another full-time developer, Mack Martin! As the developer of Dark Heresy, Mack will be able to devote 100% of his attention to Dark Heresy and lead the charge into the future with many more projects on the horizon. This will also allow me to focus entirely on the Deathwatch line, meaning that all three Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay games will have a dedicated developer.
For me, this is a momentous announcement: I am pleased to “pass the torch” to my friend and colleague Mack Martin, who is taking over as the Lead Developer for Dark Heresy beginning this month. I have rarely encountered a bigger fan of all things having to do with the Inquisition than Mack, and I am really looking forward to seeing what he has in mind for the future! Naturally, I will be working closely with Mack during the transition, and I hope you will all join me in wishing him the best!
The Next Step
Next week’s designer diary is devoted to Dead Stars and includes more information on the future of Dark Heresy. Until then, may the light of the Golden Throne guide your way!
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.
