Fantasy Flight Games proudly announces the latest supplement to join the Dark Heresy collection, Ascension!
Ascension takes your Acolytes to the next tier of power in the Calixis Sector. Learn to wield the authority of an Inquisitor’s rosette, join the elite Storm Troopers, or discover the secrets of technology known only to a Magos of the Lathe Worlds.
It is time to take your rightful place amongst the ranks of the Holy Inquisition itself! No longer are you a pawn. You’ll find advanced character generation, including transition packages to take your Dark Heresy characters from Acolytes to Throne Agents—and even the position of Inquisitor. Eleven other Ascended Careers include the mysterious Sage and the formidable Vindicare Assassin!
New Ascended Psychic Powers abound, plus a section on ascended adversaries... from Greater Daemons to renegade Imperial Governors. You’ll also find systems of influence and reputation for a different scale of wealth and power in the Imperium, plus Paragon Talents and Mastered Skills to enhance your character’s abilities.
This spring, Ascension will take your Dark Heresy campaign to greater heights of power, responsibility, and peril in the grim darkness of the far future!
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.
I'm rather looking forward to the point where Dark Heresy characters are at parity with Rogue Trader characters (yes, they can be upgraded to the same experience, but they won't have very far to go before they fall off the map).
In that vein, is there going to be a more complete translation of the Psyker powers of Dark Heresy to Rogue Trader, or is the blurb at the end of the chapter in Rogue Trader all we're going to get?
This is why DH is the best RPG game out there! :D :D :D
