Greetings Dark Heresy fans!
Above, “Lord Inquisitor” Senior RPG Developer Ross Watson (left) and “Ninja in Ordinary” Marketing Manager Jaffer Batica (right) celebrate the arrival of The Radical’s Handbook—by fighting an epic battle over who gets to read it first!
As you can see from this week’s headline picture, we’re quite pleased to announce that The Radical’s Handbook has arrived in FFG’s warehouse and will be shipping out to a game store near you next week!
If there is one sentence you could use to describe what The Radical’s Handbook is all about, it is: “Turn the weapons of the enemy against him.”
Radical Inquisitors turn away from the path of the Puritan and rely upon tools that most of the Inquisition (and other organisations of the Imperium) consider blasphemous. Heretical allies, alien technologies, and daemon weapons of Chaos are but a few of these instruments chosen by Radicals who believe that the end always justifies the means.
This brand new sourcebook for Dark Heresy contains new rules, new (and dark!) background and career options, and forbidden gear. It is an excellent resource for both players and Game masters who wish to tread the forsaken path of the Radical.
Within the pages of this tome, you will find additional rules for sorcery, tainted psychic powers, and heretical technology developed by Radicals of the Calixis Sector.
Additionally, there is an in-depth discussion of the Radical factions of the Inquistion—including many brand-new factions found only in the Calixis Sector. There’s even a “most infamous Calixian Radicals” section, some of which was showcased in last week’s designer diary.
I am very excited to see this book arrive in the warehouse and I will be very much looking forward to seeing people enjoy either playing AS Radicals...or striving against their twisted plots!
2009 Dark Heresy Adventure Competition
There’s still time to get involved in the 2009 Dark Heresy Adventure Competition! Get busy and turn in your entry by November 30th and you will be in the running to receive your very own, signed copy of The Radical’s Handbook. This year’s theme is all about the Radical factions of the Inquisition, which is only fitting given the prize...
Dark Heresy is a roleplaying game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the grim darkness of the far future. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man.
Aye I just went to the online store and it still says "coming soon" :(
Bring on the pain - our emperor will protect else purge
Really looking forward to seeing this in the flesh so too speak...
Just one more month and it will probably show up in germany *smiles confidently*
Wahey, the date Amazon gave me was true after all
Been SERIOUSLY looking forward to this one. Been an excellent couple of months really. First Rogue Trader (which I was hanging out for by my thumbs) comes out and now the sourcebook I've been anticipating more than all the others combined.
Can't wait to get my greasy little hands on it...
Very cool news! Looking forward to getting my hands on this one!
YAY! Commence daily calls to my local game store.
Excellent. Most excellent.
Peacekeeper_b, FFG will put it up on our webstore when the game releases in local game shops. This generally takes 7-10 business days.
Awesome! Can't wait until my copy arrives!
EXCELLENT ! cant wait to order these from our UK distributor, and appease our customers...
From the designers notes sounds like it will be worth the wait...
So can we order it now? Where's the link?
