|Rogue Trader | Published 11 May 2010|
“The stars call out to us, like the Siren’s songs of yore; they lure us to fortune...or calamity.”
–Captain Zacharias du Kane, Rogue Trader
Many a foolhardy Rogue Trader has passed through the Maw, never to be seen again. Avoid their fate! Equip yourselves with the tools and abilities any worthy Rogue Trader needs to survive.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Into the Storm, a supplement for Rogue Trader! You and your fellow Explorers have mustered the courage to claim the vast riches of the galaxy, but as the obstacles before you grow more formidable and your enemies more cunning, you’ll need a powerful arsenal to defend what’s yours. Arm yourself with the knowledge, equipment, and firepower to rise to dominance!
Arriving this summer, Into the Storm offers a host of new character options, allowing for increased personalization with the new expanded Origin Path and Alternate Career Ranks. Plus, play as a character from beyond the Imperium with two all-new xenos Careers. Keep watching, and over the coming weeks we'll reveal details of these exciting new options.
Vehicle rules add a new dimension to gameplay and expand possibilities for adventure. Explore uncharted worlds in a Rhino APC or dominate your foes from the cockpit of a Fury starfighter. You can even gain access to an extensive new armoury of weapons, armour, and gear wrested from alien races or rediscovered from humanity’s dark past, or augment yourself with new psychic powers for Astropaths and Navigators.
Into the Storm contains everything needed to build and equip a Rogue Trader like no other... and the crew to match. This summer, it will take more than ambition to defend your claim.
Rogue Trader is a roleplaying game set in dark gothic far future of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe. Players take on the roles of explorers aboard a Rogue Trader's ship, searching for profit and adventure while discovering new alien cultures and threats in the uncharted regions of space.
WOAH! PLAYABLE XENOS!!! And a badass cover.
Strange thing I actually lacked the time to visit this website. However I felt I should do it. And it was totally worth it!
that sounds so good! :) hope the xeno careers are eldar pathfinder and ork freebooter that would be so sweet, got my fingers crossed :) well you have to have hopes and dreams! :)
@dragan : since the Tau empire is at the other end of the galaxy and they can't warp travel, it is quite unlikely.
As for the eldar, IMO it will take a full book to cover them as a playable race.
Vehicules and guns are cool, butlike Drais I was hoping for new starships things first. Oh well
That's got to be the most badass cover for the 40k rpg books, looking forward to getting my greasy hands on a copy.
Most excellent news (well, except for my credit card debt).
This will round out my -DH- games quiet nicely, especially the full-official vehicle rules are a must-have. The one thing I wonder about is why they do not gross out "armoury books"? Or "creature books" or "guild books" or "world books" or... The core rules are all the same, aren´t they?
Anyway, talking xenos my money is on the kroot. Talking eldar, I am not quiet sure if they will include them. After all, FG has this "something old, something new" policy. Would be funny if we would end up seing some Strxy or some of the xenos mentioned in Ravenour.
At last the WH40K RPG line gets the rules for vehicles...
Anyone wanna play Stryxis...Kroot...Ork...Slaugh?
Praise the Emperor...then cleanse and purify the xenos filth.
Awesome! Looking forward to some more options for Rogue Trader and this book looks like it will definitely to that!
Vehicle rules are sorely needed! The rest is good too!
How a bout more starship components and rules for torpedos and fighter?
I'm figuring kroot and Eldar.
