Battlefleet Koronus, a supplement for Rogue Trader, is now available
Rogue Trader | Published 18 March 2011

“War is the natural state of man, for it is in battle that he has made his greatest achievements. It is at the heart of every endeavour, and those who claim otherwise are doomed to die on the same swords they decry."
     – Attributed to St. Drusus

Beyond the gates of the Maw, savage enemies raise arms against the Imperium. Rogue Traders, backed by the might of the Imperial Navy, must arm their vessels to wrest fortunes from their enemies in bloody warfare!

Battlefleet Koronus, a supplement for Rogue Trader, is now available at your local retailer and through our webstore! This indispensable tome is an extensive sourcebook about the starships that traverse the Koronus Expanse, and it features new rules on Nova Cannons, torpedoes, attack crafts, and squadrons, plus new options for outfitting player ships. Battlefleet Koronus also provides a host of enemy starships to challenge Explorers, and it delves into the rich history of the Imperial Navy and Battlefleet Calixis.

In the great darkness beyond the Emperor’s light, the enemies of humanity swarm and multiply like vermin. Pirates, renegades and aliens raid from wilderness space and think themselves safe from retribution. They are wrong. The fiery sword of Imperial wrath can descend upon them at any time in the shape of the Imperial Navy, a monumental organisation with the power to shatter star systems and destroy entire civilisations. The innumerable ships and crews of the Imperial Navy, from lumbering battleships to nimble destroyers, are the Imperium’s sword and shield in the war between the stars. Now, that sword and shield turns to face the Koronus Expanse.

For Rogue Traders, the Imperial Navy promises both opportunity and danger. Those who would exploit the Imperium or who seek the lawless frontier for its distance from Imperial eyes see the Navy as a threat. However, for all its titanic power the demands on the fleet are equally vast. Often it falls to just a handful of brave captains on the Imperium frontier’s to play a key role in the unending battle for the fate of mankind. For those Rogue Traders willing to ally themselves with the Imperial Navy, vast opportunities for warfare and profit await.

Take the Helm

With Battlefleet Koronus, new rules and components allow Explorers to man some of the Expanse’s most powerful warships! Take the helm of grand cruisers and battlecruisers and decimate your foes with torpedo salvoes, attack craft wings, and fearsome Nova Cannons. Learn of the Imperial Navy and its squadrons in the Koronus Expanse, the famed Battlefleet Koronus; their ships can prove useful allies, or powerful enemies. Then study the dread warships of vile xenos races and villainous Chaos reavers, the better to know and destroy your foes! Rules for NPC starships and squadron operations make space combat easier to run than ever before; plus, rules for waging ground wars allow you to fight entire campaigns to the final blows.

Rogue Trader is a roleplaying game set in dark gothic far future of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe. Players take on the roles of explorers aboard a Rogue Trader's ship, searching for profit and adventure while discovering new alien cultures and threats in the uncharted regions of space.

The key is that she is all over the bills. There is no way for me to spend money without her knowing. I'm on financial lockdown! (The upside is that I don't have to worry about paying the bills or balancing the checkbook.)

careful with the evening of romance, they can read minds and can smell fear!

lol it's not suicide to distract her with a more obvious approach.  It's like throwing one of the other players in front of a Daemonhost so you can grab the treasure that will kill it.  Unfortunately, your book is the treasure that WON'T kill her, and YOU are both players. 

So technically speaking... ok fine... suicide.

Second idea: Flowers and romantic evening "just for the hell of it."

While you're reading your shiny new tome full of voidy-death, tell her to make you a sammich.

This will distract her ire to you saying that and less about the book.

This plan is fool-proof and chosen by the Dark Gods to work.
