Ross Watson and the rest of the RPG department are away from FFG Headquarters and headed out to Merry Old England to commune with our friends and partners at Games Workshop this week, but while he is out, we present for everyone who was not able to make it out to Free RPG Day on Saturday our contribution to the event: Forsaken Bounty .
Forsaken Bounty is a set of quickstart rules, pregenerated characters, and an introductory adventure for the Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Rogue Trader roleplaying game.
In Rogue Trader , players will take on the roles of the crew of a Rogue Trader ship, a ship given the freedom to explore the edges of known space and exploit them for riches and renown. A Rogue Trader who can wrest profits from a dangerous universe will enjoy something few humans in the 41st Millenium know - a life of adventure and freedom. The course, however, is fraught with peril: foul aliens, pernicious raiders, and even other Rogue Traders will stand in your way on the path to greatness. Will you set forth into the beyond and brave a deadly universe for fortune and glory?
In this introductory adventure, the crew of the Rogue Trader ship, Sovereign Venture , must journey into the Maw, a merciless region of unexplored space, to salvage the lost vessel, Emperor's Bounty . The crew of the Venture will find more than they bargained for as they delve into the secrets of the forsaken Bounty .
Forsaken Bounty can be played with three players and a GM and you can also download two additional bonus characters to add to the crew of the Sovereign Venture .
