According to ICv2, Fantasy Flight Games will expand two of its Warhammer role-playing games by publishing hardcover supplements for Deathwatch, Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader, and Warhammer Fantasy in early 2011.
Rites of Battle, a supplement for Deathwatch, provides a host of additional options for players and GMs alike. Deathwatch is a roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of the bio-engineered super-soldiers known as Space Marines. United with their battle-brothers, players will complete extraordinary missions involving some of the greatest heroes and deadliest opponents the Warhammer 40,000 universe has to offer. This book expands on many of the ideas, themes, and systems present in the Deathwatch rulebook and offers means to enrich and add detail to the adventures of a Kill- team in the Jericho Reach. A host of new character options allow for increased personalization with thorough “Create Your Own Chapter” and “Alternate Specialities” rules. Plus, play a member of the Imperial Fists Chapter or one of the Successor Chapters that send Space Marines to the Deathwatch. Vehicle rules add a new dimension to gameplay and expand possibilities for adventure. A valuable handbook for Space Marines of the Deathwatch, Rites of Battle contains everything needed to prepare a Deathwatch Kill-team for any mission.
The Black Sepulchre, an adventure for Dark Heresy, is the first installment of The Apostasy Gambit. Dark Heresy is a roleplaying game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, a setting in the grim darkness of the far future. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man. The Apostasy Gambit is a Dark Heresy campaign that takes a cell of Acolytes from investigating the tragic history of a warped Cathedral to crusading against a conspiracy at the heart of one of the Imperium’s most vaunted organisations. The Black Sepulchre can be played on its own, or it can form a part of the grand Apostasy Gambit campaign. What’s more, this adventure is designed for all levels of play, so beginners and veterans alike can explore its varied paths to success.
Battlefleet Koronus, a supplement for Rogue Trader which also takes place in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, centers around the Imperial naval forces in the Koronus Expanse. With Battlefleet Koronus, new rules and components allow Explorers to man some of the Expanse’s most powerful warships. Rules for NPC starships and squadron operations make space combat easier to run than ever before; plus, rules for waging ground wars allow you to fight entire campaigns to the final blows. It will have a suggested retail price of $39.95 and a product number of RT09.
The Witch’s Song is a stand-alone boxed adventure module for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. The Witch’s Song features a mysterious new adventure that sends players to the fishing village of Fauligmere, not far from the city of Marienburg. Legends of a witch suggest that the unfortunate events plaguing Faulgimere are something more than a run of bad luck. Someone (or something) sinister is surely responsible. Players are pit against nobles of questionable intent, a mystery shrouded in speculations, and a group of fanatics that are quick to answer any cry of witchcraft. This boxed adventure comes with many tools for GMs and players alike, including a full colour book containing the adventure, as well as all the reference sheets, tokens, and cards the GM needs to bring the story to life. For players, The Witch’s Song also includes new rules, spells, and options for hedge magic and witch characters. The Witch’s Song will have a suggested retail price of $29.95. The product number will be WHF15.
