Rogue Trader is a roleplaying game set in dark gothic far future of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe.

 If they make the Death Watch RPG system that has been rumoured i want a game where you have a Ordo Xenos Inquisitor/Acolytes with a Death Watch kill team aboard a Rouge Traders ship

I can't await to see more of this interesting RPG. I finally started playing Dark Heresy three months ago and really love the game system. Maybe in this winter, there will be a nice change in theme, when my players give up inquisitorial work and do their day-work as privateers.

Looks great!

Why are the starting skills in rank 1 advances?

My Guess would be to allow skill mastery, assuming that the rouge trader system will be basicly the same as dark heracy, if you have the same skill twice you get a +10

Looking good :)  Can't wait for this to come out.

Not that I'm picky though but I think there's a typo FFG might need checking.  The line;

"There more than a few Explorators who, in their desire to uncover the secrets of the universe,"

I think is meant to read;

"There ARE more than a few Explorators who, in their desire to uncover the secrets of the universe,"

WOOT! I loved the tech-priest in DH and this does not dissapoint! I know what class I'm playing! ;)

Indeed. I'm liking this quite a bit and can't wait for August to start Traderizing!

So, it seems we have proof that starting RT-Characters ARE "more powerfull" then their DH counterparts.  Espeically this "universal weapon talents" seems nice. A mighty member of the mechanicus SHOULD know all of the tools of his trade..
