“He’s a madman, hell bent on scourging the Expanse of those with the will to stand up to him. Even his name elicits the sign of the Aquila and prayers to the God–Emperor."
–Darius Xerxes, Helmsman (referring to Karrad Vall)
A great beast has awakened from beyond the edges of the Koronus Expanse, hungering to fulfill its dark purpose. Before you and your fellow Explorers can attempt to seek it out and ultimately destroy it, you must uncover what and where it is. Finding the answer is a nearly impossible undertaking, pitting you against an infamous pirate lord blessed by Chaos.
Citadel of Skulls, the second adventure in The Warpstorm Trilogy for Rogue Trader, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! On the hunt to discover the cause of vanishing settlements, increased xenos sightings, and aggressive confrontations between the Rogue Traders and a mysterious group of raiding pirate vessels, you and your fellow Explorers are thrust on a perilous journey. The key to your quest lies hidden at the Casket of Secrets, in the very heart of the Citadel of Skulls, Karrad Vall’s home. Prepare to attempt the ultimate heist: stealing a priceless artefact that belonged to a legendary starship from Karrad Vall’s vault. No sane person has ever risked entering the Faceless Lord’s inner sanctum, let alone stealing from him...until you.
Raiders, Slavers, and Reavers
Can you and your fellow Explorers navigate safely through your impending expedition? Your journey begins with strange developments, untrustworthy guides, and the awakened mysterious force shadowing your every step. The way to Vall’s seat of power is blocked by potential hazards and a sky full of raiders, slavers, and reavers. Plot your course through Vall’s dark cathedral, past quivering slaves and brutal enemies, bloody chambers, and the ossuaries full of bones that give the Citadel its name. And once you reach the Casket of Secrets you’ll meet “the Archivist.”
Citadel of Skulls can be played as a standalone adventure or connected to the events introduced in The Frozen Reaches. Will you be able to withstand the voyage?
Head to your local retailer to pick up your copy, and get ready to take your place in the events that will shape the future of the Koronus Expanse!
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.
Star Wars had its moment, but I think it keeps failing to keep that feel. But that is just my opinion. A new Star Wars RPG would be a worthy task to take up, but I hope it isnt full of chits, special code dice, cards, initiative trackers, placemats and tokens with miniatures. I might have to go ebay hunt some classic star wars D6 rulebooks now. Great.
As for this "adventure" can anyone give a rundown as whats in it? I guess I should head to the Rogue Trader forum!
I agree peacekeeper but if they can get something similar to what that was like i will be very happy as much as i do love 40k i love star wars more :o)
As I understand it (and their RPG history confirms this), FFG never announces any new books unless they've been tested, done and dusted, and sent to the printer. So no worries, the books are coming and they will talk about them, WHEN they are sent to the printer.
I think the scheduele for the DH and RT lines might have changed (as in: pushed backwards a bit), since Black Crusade is coming out and the lead developer of the BC line (Sam Stewart) is also the lead developer for the RT line.
Man does the world really need another Star Wars RPG? West End Games Star Wars D6 was perfect. Just resurrect that.
What about hostile take over and the other rogue trader book??
Is this because they are now working on the Star Wars RPG?
If so go ahead i want that before anything else but at least be kind enough to tell us :o(
So Im not getting Only War this summer am I?
Unfortunately no new products (i.e. Book of Judgement for DH, or Hostile Acquisitions for RT) were announced during the Gencon seminars.
Good book. Looking forward to hearing the results of the seminars at gencon...next years productline and such.
