Announcing the Game Master's Kit for Deathwatch
Deathwatch | Published 21 June 2010

The Watch is about to begin!

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Game Master’s Kit for Deathwatch! With the Deathwatch Core Rulebook, players will experience heart-pounding action and unique mission-driven roleplaying. But every mission has a purpose, and it is up to the Game Master to devise that purpose.

The Game Master’s Kit, hitting shelves this fall, will help keep a Kill-team’s Missions from going astray! It comes complete with a sturdy GM screen featuring stunning Deathwatch artwork and useful tables, charts, rules, and statistics, providing quick Game Master reference and a handy place to hide notes.

Added to this is a 32-page full colour booklet with a selection of useful NPCs, an expanded Mission-generation system, and a complete adventure:

The Jericho Reach teems with xenos secrets and mysteries from before the Age of Shadow. One enigma amongst many is Baraban, a forested planet where “ghosts” haunt Imperial Guardsmen and their Tau enemies alike.

The included adventure, The Shadow of Madness, explores what unfathomed forces may have cursed the planet Baraban, and raises questions about their connection to the unknown purpose of the waiting Omega Vault.

Also in the Game Master’s Kit book is a section devoted to aiding Game Masters in devising missions and implementing them into your own Deathwatch campaigns. Finally, the back of the book serves an appendix detailing the important NPCs that the Kill-team may encounter, plus plenty of adventure seeds for each.

Offering a wealth of useful content, the Game Master’s Kit is the perfect enhancement to your Deathwatch experience. Look for it on store shelves this fall!


Deathwatch is a roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of the bio-engineered super-soldiers known as Space Marines. United with their battle-brothers, players will complete extraordinary missions involving some of the greatest heroes and deadliest opponents the Warhammer 40,000 universe has to offer.

Chaplain Magister: Remember, High Gothic is meant to be badly translated Dog Latin. ;)

Yay!  Another armoured GM Screen of Unruly Player Smiting!

ZillaPrima: Although I share your passion, I must correct your High Gothic grammar.  :P 

It's: In Nomine Imperatoris! 


Anyone knows when will the Corebook hit the stores?

Yeah I was wondering about the Age of Strife too. Never heard of it but its a good bid, Brother Praetus.

Pleased to see this. I pray it's as excellent quality as the Rogue Trader screen & kit. :D

"Age of Shadow"? Do they mean Age of Strife or something else?

The Age of Shadow could be in someway a reference to the recent Tyrannid invasions.  After all, they do cast that shadow in the warp, and all.  Just a thought.

The bit about "ghosts" on the planet Baraban haunting the IG and Tau forces could be referencing the presence of Lictors; or could be something totally unrelated.

In any case, I'll be picking this up. I've liked the GM kits so far.
