By Valnastar VINE VOICE on July 31, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This roleplay game set in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe is brilliantly produced and is luckily back in print thanks to a deal between Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight Games. The book is hundreds of pages long and filled with high quality color illustrations and background information embellishing the thoughtfully produced roleplay game rules and extensive background information. The best parts of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay are present like the career system with all of the dark science fiction aspects of Warhammer 40,000 (40K) intertwined and built on top of them. Although the basic system is set up for characters to play henchman in an inquisitor's warband, there are a lot of different types of characters to be played. Coupled with a "gamemaster" and players who have a lot of imagination, this game has great and extensive creative possibilities.

The first print run of Dark Heresy earlier this year sold out extremely quickly due to the great fan reaction to the high quality of the book.

Fantasy Flight Games has a contract to continue publishing Dark Heresy and its supplements and other popular Games Workshop products previously published by Black Industries.

For those interested in the entire Dark Heresy game system, there are several more products due for release throughout 2008, all of which are likely to be available here on Amazon. These include:
-Character Record Pack
-Dark Heresy Game Master's Kit
-Purge the Unclean Adventure Anthology
-Inquisitor's Armoury, Weapons of the Righteous (detailing weapons and equipment)
-Inquisitor's Handbook (player handbook)
-Disciples of the Dark Gods (sourcebook for Chaos)

I just read this book, and I have to say "good work!" to the producers.

I gave it just 4 stars just because I think it's a little hard to get the right atmosphere if you're not an expert of WH40k.

The book is amazing, well written and easy to use at the game table. Every aspect of the Inquisition is well described, as the core mechanics of the game. Despite of the huge number of pages, I think it should have a little more focus on Xenos (aliens) and veichles, but in the end this lack does not mean less amusement in the game session.

In the end... get it, you won't regret!

Do you hate heretics?
Do you patrol the border of your country with a laser rifle?
Do you wish this review actually had meaningful content?

Then play Dark Heresy, where the entire universe is just like you! Dark Heresy is the exciting role-playing system based on the Warhammer 40k series. Take on the role of Acolytes, serving your inquisitor and beating the snot out of anyone not properly worshiping the God-Emperor.

Kudos to FFG for this excellent RPG.

The player takes on one of several roles (e.g., mech adept, administrator, arbiters - police/jury rolled into one, psyker, etc.) as part of an Inquisitor's team.

As my players described it, Dark Heresy is "fun, fast, and deadly." The dice roll mechanics mean that there is almost always hope, but death lurks around athe corner too as the villains get the same advantage.

FFG did an excellent job of capturing the despair and resolve that flows from
the books in the Black Library.

This single book has all that you need to play. (Sometimes books advertise that, but in this case it is true.)

Whether you want to role-play in the world of Eisenhorn and Ravenor, or you are looking for a dark future RPG, this book is a must buy.

In service,

Rich

The game mechanics are simple and easy to learn. Game-play flows nicely. The setting is rich, and full of opportunities for intense role-play. However, I wouldn't recommend for anyone under the age of eighteen, as the setting is extremely dark ... graphically so. But for older, advanced players, it is a fine game.

Gaming group decided to play this so I picked it up although I did not know anything about Warhammer universe but luckily the book has lots of great lore and the game mechanics are easy to understand. Have played 4 sessions so far and having a blast. As for the vendor I'd say I got what I expected and got here quickly.

So I only recently got into the Warhammer 40K universe, but have been an avid role player for a while. After looking through this book, I decided I had to have it. I ran our group through the campaign in the back of the book and we had a fun time. Although it was difficult to implement the Tech Priest class into the game. Overall, the different archs that the training gives you allows you to play the same class as someone else but have a completely different feel for who your character is. The mystery of the game allows the players to delve into the game and try to solve a problem, not always by simple martial prowess. It was very funny to see how the group I ran through it solved the problem, even though I thought they were going to die throwing them against it.

The book itself has wonderful art throughout, some of the best I have ever seen in an RPG book. The rules are fairly simple, and overall it is easy to read. This is one of the few RPG books I could sit down and read in one sitting. I love the Psychic power system and have a friend thoroughly scared of the Warp.

The only thing I wish they would have done was put a concise table system for some of the rules (like seen on the Game Masters Kit) that allows for a simple fast finding of some of the weapons, rules, and tables.

Overall I would highly recommend this book if you are looking for something set in the futuristic role play heavy era. It is a lot of fun and has some good horror elements to it.
