Jan ran a mini-campaign of Dark Heresy over the summer for Tim, who loves 40K, and the rest of us, who didn’t know a thing about it.

Warhammer 101! We had a psyker, a God Emperor fanatic, an investigator torture type lady and a booky nerd who really liked red tape. That last one was me. My homeworld was Desoleum, which is one of the coolest places in roleplay-land. I love the oathcog system.


We followed a story that lead us deep into the Askelion sector and included plenty of showcasing what our characters were good at. There was pleny of psyking, torturing and preaching the gospel. It was really fun to see my decidedly non-aggressive and nerdy skills of bureaucracy be actually useful.
