Dark Heresy: WH40K

0 INK

Welcome to Dark Heresy, a roleplaying game full of danger, mystery, and brutal violence, set in the decaying far future of Warhammer 40,000.

4,836 readers have visited Dark Heresy: WH40K since Incognito created it.

Introduction

It is the 41st millennium. 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 are sacrificed every day, so that he may never truly die. Yet even in his deathless state, the Emperor continues his eternal vigilance. Mighty battle fleets cross the daemon infested miasma of the warp, the only route between distant stars, their way lit by the Astronomican, the psychic manifestation of the Emperor’s will. Vast armies give battle in his name on uncounted worlds. Greatest amongst his soldiers are the Adeptus Astartes, the Space Marines, bio-engineered super-warriors. Their comrades in arms are legion: the Imperial Guard and countless planetary defense forces, the ever-vigilant Inquisition and the tech-priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus to name only a few. But for all their multitudes, they are barely enough to hold off the ever-present threat from aliens, heretics, mutants and worse. To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are those times. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods.

Welcome to Dark Heresy, a roleplaying game full of danger, mystery, and brutal violence, set in the decaying far future of Warhammer 40,000. You are about to embark on perilous adventures into the dark heart of the 41st millennium. You stand on the front line of a great and secret war. As an Acolyte of the powerful Inquisition, you will root out threats to the Imperium of man. You will engage in deadly combat against heretics, aliens, and witches. You will face demonic possession, and battle for your very survival amidst a web of conspiracy and betrayal. But perhaps the biggest threat you will face is your fellow man, for the human soul are such fertile grounds for corruption. It is your duty to shepherd mankind from the manifold paths of damnation, with smoking boltgun is necessary.
Do not shrink from your noble calling, hard as it might be. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and these are the darkest times humanity has ever known. The Imperium is beset by enemies, both from within and without. It is up to you to stand tall and make a difference.

In Dark Heresy, you take the role of an Acolyte, a trainee investigator in the service of a powerful Inquisitor. You, out of countless billions, have been chosen to play a part in a war so great and terrible that ordinary men must never learn its secrets. Your master will task you with all manner of missions, in which you will encounter witches, aliens, and even deamons. You will be tempted with power and exposed to corruption. You, your allies or even your master may fall under the thrall of the Dark Gods. Should this happen, it will be your duty to purge with fire and righteousness, for the Ruinous Ones, the Chaos Powers, are insidious in their evil and would destroy you and all of mankind if they could.
You and your fellow Acolytes must struggle to hold back many threats that face humanity. You must do this knowing that your name will never be recorded in the annals of history. Power, fame, and grandeur shall never be yours- but you do not fight for these things. You fight because you must. You fight because failure will mean the destruction of the Imperium… and of all mankind.

It’s not going to be easy. In the earliest stages, you are little better then anyone else of the 41st millennium. You are merely one of the many scores of Acolytes recruited into the Inquisition. You’ll need to use your wits, luck, and the skills of your companions to the best of your abilities if you are to survive. The longer you last and the stronger you become, the greater the foes you will be asked to face. The war of the soul of mankind is unending, and even should you live long enough to become an Inquisitor in full, you will never know peace until the day you die.
When you die, you will not be missed, but then mere glory never made heroes. Your struggle, your triumph, and your failures- these are the things that matter. They matter because, Emperor willing, you will have made a difference, however small. In the 41st millennium, that is the greatest legacy a man may dare hope for.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Well...Yeah...if the silence haven't answered your question then I will. This one is dead. People just stopped coming and even though we're still like 2-3 people who wants to do it, it is the bloody time difference that stops us. So yeah. Sorry, but it's dead.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Hey there, I recently restarted playing Dark Heresy, I know I'm about a month late, but are you still looking for new players? Seriously I'm dying to get back into the game, I've been running a campaign over MSN but I'm playing with two people from the UK and the time zone differences are playing hell with my scheduling, so the game is up on hiatus for at least a month. I have several characters already made, I'm a HUGE fan of the lore, and I've been playing RPGs on and off for about a total of 6 years, started playing about 10 years ago though.

I hope to hear back on this, once again, really am excited if the oppurtunity is still open!

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Hey there, like I said, I will be there, though I have a plane so I have to leave, eventually.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

I know this is short notice, but I will be online at 11 AM tomorrow, Saturday the 12th, and hosting our normal RP session. Wrapping up school has proven to be an exceptional amount of work... I should have gotten paid. But I'm back now! And ready to continue our plot-line of Heresy.

If you will be showing up, please say so below, likewise if you cannot. If the necessary people do not show-up tomorrow, I will be hosting a mini-RP.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

alright....Certainly some off topic....High five?

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

I know this is unrelated... But I just had to Hi5 Saxious!

So here man, High Five!

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

if incog can't do it, can I run another mini-rp?

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Alright...so will there be an RP this time? Are people up for it anymore? I might have to leave after 2 or 3 hours though, i have a plane to catch the following day.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Alright, I regret to say that this weekend's RP session will be canceled due to a school related issue. Put simply, if I don't get a month's worth of work done by monday I fall short of the credits needed to graduate. That being said, you can see where I cannot afford the five+ hours it takes to host the RP as normal.

Once more, this weekend's RP session will be canceled, and we will pick it back up next weekend.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

You do get points for being honest, Morbin. And Sax I understand, I've been doing finals the past two weeks, this will be my last week before graduation.

I may be hosting an un-related short mission next weekend instead of our normal RP, due to the absence of two of our members. I have not decided yet.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

My reasons for not showing are purely my own fault.

I slept in. I may not get points for responsibility, but I should get points for honesty.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

I will not be able to participate next week, it is exam week for the following two weeks tomorrow, and thus...I have to study.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

I apologize for having to leave this RP session about half way through, but my mother had a mini emergency. Turned out to be nothing. Anyway, I'm glad Sax and Vincent continued the RP without me and I'm happy at the point you two arrived at. We'll continue next week, Saturday 11AM US Central.

Morbin, not sure why you didn't show up, but it might be my fault since I forgot to post the time for this week's session. I hope you can attend next week, but if you can't please send me a PM.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Alright, we could then say that Liang gave Xanthus some noodles which really wasn't something for his stomach....hey, we're located in the underhive, do you honestly expect the food to be that good?

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

i'm on holiday this weekend and probably next weekend so won't be able to RP.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Yeah, so, Vincent, Xavier and I had a mini RP amongst our own characters, which turned out to be quite a lot of fun :)

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Indeed we shall. The server crashed and then I couldn't log on, just kept giving me an error message. But I will see you all this Saturday (29th) at 11 AM.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

Alright....Despite the crash that happened last time, I will assume that everyone will be up for another try, this Saturday, same time, (11:00 am US time, 5pm UK London) ja?

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

I'll have to close the RP after Rashnu until the next Campaign (assuming there are open slots). We also need to work out a turn system next weekend since we have more then a small group now, it will be necessary to keep everything fair.

Re: [SU(OPEN)] Dark Heresy: WH40K

I'd love to sign up if at all possible. Looking to add a character in the Arbitrator path. I know Vincent_Veritas, so he can help me get everything set up to save you all some time. Very big 40k fan and always a good character/roleplay fan.
