The Koronus Expanse spreads out before you, as mysterious and promising as the future itself. But now both have become a little clearer, and a wealth of riches await those brave souls willing to claim them.
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.
Awesome! I'm looking forward to the Xenos book most. Too bad I'll have to wait that long.
It was decided early on during the design of Into the Storm that rules for Torpedoes, Attack Craft and the Nova Cannon were best served by being placed in a dedicated starships book, where we can spend plenty of time and space giving them the treatment they deserve, rather than cramming them into the already-packed Into the Storm. It means a little longer wait, certainly, but it'll be worth it - Battlefleet Koronus contains some amazing stuff.
Millandson: The Kronus Expanse book sounds more like a book catering to endeavors on specific "hotspots" within the Expanse. While certainly useful none the less, I'm hope for a more generic book on trade and merchant princes in the future.
Looks like some nice releases on their way. I am getting antsy about official torpedo and squadron rules. The first game session I had to deal with not having those. I think every player wanting to crew a vessel is waiting for that. Dang, so far away!
Hang on, we have to wait for the first quarter of 2011 to get some rules on nova cannons, torpedoes and attack craft? Damnit, I thought some of those rules were going to be included in "Into the Storm" (a book I have been looking forward to for those exact reasons).
Cool with some planned releases and all, but this is somewhat disappointing. : /
Some nice stuff. Will help me bide the time til Only War is out.
The one on the Koronus Expanse and the Xenos are the ones I look forward to the most. The adventure looks a bit bland, but we will see.
Am I the only one getting an error message when I try to view this?
The only bad news is how long we have to wait before these books will be in the shops. They all sound very interesting and useful.
Long long wait for some of those books. Oooh, evil evil evil teasers.
Psion: If you notice "Edge of the Abyss", that mentions having stuff to do with normal endeavours. I can say it's pretty helpful all-round, to players (for endeavours and the like) and GMs (lot of stuff about planets, systems, areas and factions of Koronus).
Xenos book, Ships book, a book about criminal endeavors... Will there be a book about regular merchantile endeavors as well then?
Xenos Companion, that will be my second RT purchase, here's hoping its worth it
