How a Plaguebearer Stole Candlemass
Popunjeno 4/4 mjesta
Candlemass (officially called the Feast of the Emperor's Ascension) is one of the few days in the Imperium when the working masses are allowed a brief respite from their daily drudgery: a single day of unpaid leave. It celebrates the moment, ten thousand years ago, when He was raised to the Golden Throne and made the transition to divinity. It is celebrated by feasting, games and various other spectacles to honour the Emperor.
The Acolytes of Inquisitor Hakk are recuperating after an especially difficult mission on a local Agri World, where they can finally unwind, relax and maybe even enjoy some of the festivities ...
Dark Heresy is set in the grim and dark future of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Players assume the role of a group of Acolytes working for an Inquisitor who sends them on various missions. Depending on the type of mission, the gameplay can involve investigation, combat, intrigue, or a number of other genres. As the players work for an Inquisitor, most missions involve rooting out heresies or matters relating to them, but the breadth of the game allows for many other missions, including wiping out dangerous gangs, gathering evidence of corruption, or eliminating rogue psykers.
Players may choose between 8 premade Acolytes.
If they wish, players may build their own Acolytes before the game. Please consult the GM for further instructions.
Prior knowledge of the gaming system is not necessary.
In Dark Heresy, players take on roles as Acolytes of an Inquisitor, 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 will fall to endless night.
Dark Heresy Second Edition is a roleplaying game of danger, mystery, and brutal violence set in the decaying far future of Warhammer 40,000. Players assume the roles of defenders of humanity and embark on hazardous adventures in the darkest frontiers of the 41st Millennium. On the orders of an Inquisitor, at the front lines of a great and secret war, they root out dangers that imperil all of humanity. In Dark Heresy Second Edition, players explore the new Ashkelon Sector and bring to life epic tales where it is always a minute from eternal midnight and only their combined efforts can defeat those foes that threaten humanity and stave off the end for one more day. They can never rest, for the multitudes of terrors desiring humanity's extinction are ever-present.
For more than a hundred centuries the Emperor has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the Master of Mankind by the will of the gods and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the Imperium, for whom a thousand souls die every day, for whom blood is drunk and flesh eaten. Human blood and human flesh – the stuff of which the Imperium is made. To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruellest and most bloody regime imaginable. This is the tale of those times.
It is a universe you can live today – if you dare – for this is a dark and terrible era where you will find little comfort or hope. If you want to take part in the adventure, then prepare yourself now. Forget the power of technology, science and common humanity. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for there is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter and the laughter of thirsting gods.
But the universe is a big place and, whatever happens, you will not be missed…
