|Only War | Published 13 June 2012|
“I can assure you that almost all units of the Scintillan 17th have been withdrawn from the target zones and we will be ready to commence orbital strikes on the Ork vanguard shortly. I also realise that significant elements of the Catachan 223rd have not reached the safe zone. This was always an anticipated risk, and I think I speak for many here when I say: really, who will miss them?"
–Commander-General Pailus, Scintillan 4th Army Group
In fewer than eleven hours, the Imperium will commence its orbital bombardment of an Ork-infested death world. Unfortunately for you and the other members of the Catachan 233rd, that may not be enough time to reach the safety of a firebase. Can you traverse kilometres of dense, xenos-covered jungle in time to escape? And when faced with time-consuming questions of duty, honor, and compassion, will you remain true to your principles, or abandon them in a moment of self-serving desperation?
As we announced in April, Fantasy Flight Games will proudly take part in Free RPG Day 2012 with an adventure for Only War, the all-new standalone Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of soldiers in the Imperial Guard!
Debuting this Saturday at participating retailers, Eleventh Hour is a gripping story that presents you and fellow squadmates with tough questions about honor and survival. When your superiors abandon you on the sweltering surface of a hostile world, will you have the strength to embody the ideals of the Imperial Guard?
Today, we’re pleased to offer two additional downloadable characters for Eleventh Hour! Bring the keen eyes of Ratling sniper Cottar “Teeny” Gamwich, or the unwavering leadership of Commissar Zara Harper, to your upcoming mission (we’ve also included a revised version of Urok the Ogryn, which corrects a minor error in the original printing of Eleventh Hour).
Do you live in the Roseville, Minnesota area? In honor of Free RPG Day, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center will be giving away free copies of Eleventh Hour, and Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay developers Andrew Fischer, Max Brooke, Tim Huckelbery, and Mack Martin will be in attendance to answer questions and run introductory sessions. Sign up now at the Event Center to play Only War with a 40K RPG designer!
The bombardment will begin soon. Grab your gear and get moving, soldier.
Only War is a Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of soldiers in the Imperial Guard, the galaxy-spanning armies of the God-Emperor. In the face of overwhelming opposition, Guardsmen fight against mankind’s many enemies for the very survival of humanity and the continuation of the Imperium’s dominance over space.
