|Deathwatch | Published 08 June 2010|
Fantasy Flight Games would like to invite you to join the Deathwatch!
Check out this exciting new game on Free RPG Day with the introductory adventure Final Sanction. Things are not right on the planet of Landsholm. Rebellion and anarchy threaten to the tear the world apart. The Inquisition suspects alien influence, and has requested that the Deathwatch be sent in to handle the matter.
This free introduction to Deathwatch includes a full adventure, four pre-generated characters, and a set of basic rules to help players and Game Masters become familiar with the Deathwatch roleplaying game.
Check out a list of participating retailers.
In honor of Free RPG Day, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center will be giving away free copies of Final Sanction, and RPG developers Ross Watson, Sam Stewart, and Mack Martin will be in attendance to run introductory sessions of Deathwatch!
Planning to attend at the FFG Event Center? Check out a full schedule of events!
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.
I can't wait for the PDF to become available. Heck, I can't wait for the book.
i've seen the adventure now and the complete lack of mapped encounter areas is vastly disapointing
When will the PDF be up?
I'd love to see a PDF version of this. I've enjoyed the additional adventure PDFs for DH and RT to date so I've high hopes for this one.
Looks like I'll be headed out to Fallon, Nevada to play and maybe even run the scenario. I'm sure it will be worth the hour drive!
I am hoping there will be a PDF of this. Free RPG day is not going to be supported here. Too expensive for the retailers and to late for them to get their order in.
"@peterstepon - Deathwatch takes place on the opposite side of the galaxy from Koronus and Calixis, so sorry, but Deathwatch isn't going to be talking about those areas."
I know, I know, I was just saying that this is a good morsel to throw the hungry consumer dogs before the big product comes out. I am sure that the rules will probably be compatable with the current DH and RT rules so I would imagine it would be easy to plug and play with the characters given (besides, the Deathwatch, as an institution, are across the entire Imperium, it is indeed possible that there are a few out on the Western side of Space, it was alluded in Purge the Unclean that there was atleast a squad somewhere in Calixis sector).
You have played the PDF, any hints on where we can download a copy? That would be great.
I'd expect it to be out as a PDF fairly soon. I mean, I playtested the demo with the PDF, so it'd be a surprise to see it not up for download.

What about us GM's who would love to run a demo of deathwatch the day of free rpg day, while there are customers presumably coming in to the store because it is a rpg day?????????
I agree that this cover is better. The lead space marine for the "official" cover looks fat.
the cover for the intro adventure just feels right, its everything a sm is, shame its too late to change the cover of the core book (printing time being what they are and all the fuss that goes with it)
but it would be good if ffg could get another pic, one thats not as weak and watered down, colour wise and in overall feel, to use for the main book! :) those dw sm may be vets and harder that the hardest nails but they all could do with a repaint and a bit of sun to put the colour back in them! :)
And it's got a better cover than the preview of the core book. ^^
