Hello Dark Heresy Second Edition Beta testers!
It has been over a week since the launch of the Dark Heresy Second Edition Beta and your response has been fantastic! The Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay Team appreciates all of your forum discussions and emails, and we have already started using your feedback to help us make the new edition of Dark Heresy the best game possible.
Every Wednesday, we will post a weekly update to keep you informed about the progress of the beta. This post will include any big news involving the beta, guidance on where we would like you to focus your attention in the coming week, and a PDF update to the beta document to keep you informed of the most recent tweaks and changes to the Dark Heresy Second Edition core rules. This week’s update (pdf, 6.6 MB) can be found on the beta support page. Additionally, there is a dedicated thread in the Game Mechanics forum in which you can discuss any feedback directly related to this week’s update.
A Weekly Process
As mentioned above, each week we will concentrate on a certain aspect of the Dark Heresy rules that we would like you to focus on testing in that week. This will allow us to take a deeper look at individual features, and help facilitate more in-depth discussions. Keep in mind, however, that these topics are just the focus for the week, and you are welcome to continue testing whatever aspect of the rules you wish at your own pace. Any and all feedback is welcome at any time.
Now that many of you have had time in this first week to look through the Beta and get acclimated, we would like to dedicate this next week to testing the Core Game Mechanics (found in chapter 1) and Character Creation (found in Chapter II). Try out lots of different character combinations, mixing Home Worlds, Backgrounds, and Roles along with Elite Advances. Also try the web supplement with additional character development options, such as physical attributes and mementos. Think about:
We look forward to your thoughts and opinions as this beta progresses. Thank you all for your invaluable feedback and insight during this process!
Dark Heresy Second Edition is an upcoming addition to Fantasy Flight Game’s line of Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying games. In Dark Heresy Second Edition, players take on the roles of Acolytes (or even Inquisitors), standing at the front line of a great and secret war to root out threats that imperil all of humanity. Should they fail, entire worlds, systems, and sectors may fall to endless night.
The Dark Heresy Second Edition beta provides an abridged, electronic version of the full book. For information on participating in the beta process, visit our description page.
