Greetings Initiate -
At long last, the time has come to walk a new path and fulfill your destiny. After years of successful, unfailing service in the name of your Chapter, your Primarch, and the Emperor - your exploits and successes have revealed you to be a most worthy candidate. Now that the oath has been spoken and the ritual painting of your power armour is complete, it is time to assume the mantle of service beyond the concerns of your single Chapter, and unlike any you have ever known.
The time has come to join your brothers. Deathwatch is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! Also available is the Deathwatch Game Master’s Kit, the perfect enhancement for your Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay experience.
Deathwatch is a roleplaying game in which you and your friends take on the roles of the bio-engineered super-soldiers known as Space Marines, undertaking the most dangerous special missions in the universe. Join an elite warrior brotherhood and face hostile aliens and foul daemons in the Jericho Reach, a region of the Imperium devastated by war and on the brink of annihilation!
As a Deathwatch Space Marine you have been selected as an exceptional candidate from amongst the finest warriors alive. United in this newly forged brotherhood, all Deathwatch Space Marines must learn to put aside their differences and work together to succeed in the most extraordinary of missions — or face the threat of total annihilation when confronted by implacable alien foes.
During your missions for the Deathwatch, you and your fellow Space Marines will earn renown, advance in experience and prestige, and garner special wargear only entrusted to the the most honoured and trustworthy battle-brothers.
Also available at your local retailer is The Deathwatch Game Master’s Kit, which helps keep a Kill-team’s Missions from going astray! It comes complete with a sturdy GM screen featuring stunning Deathwatch artwork and useful tables, charts, rules, and statistics, providing quick Game Master reference and a handy place to hide notes.
Added to this is a 32-page full colour booklet with a selection of useful NPCs, an expanded Mission-generation system, and a complete adventure. The Shadow of Madness, explores what unfathomed forces may have cursed the planet Baraban, and raises questions about their connection to the unknown purpose of the waiting Omega Vault.
Also in the Game Master’s Kit book is a section devoted to aiding Game Masters in devising missions and implementing them into your own Deathwatch campaigns. Finally, the back of the book serves an appendix detailing the important NPCs that the Kill-team may encounter, plus plenty of adventure seeds for each.
Head to your local retailer and pick up Deathwatch and The Game Master’s Kit today!
