Earn the Favour of the Ruinous Powers 17
Play a Black Crusade introductory adventure at Free RPG Day, June 18th
Black Crusade | Published 13 May 2011

“Heresy: such a simple word for such a complex idea. And like so many of the titles bestowed by the followers of the Corpse-God, utterly meaningless."
       —Karnak Zul

On route across the sector to a carry out a sentence of torture, interrogation, and execution, the Imperial prison barge Chains of Judgement has become lost in the warp, drifting far off course. Now, you and your fellow condemned heretics have awoken from stasis to find the ship in a state of chaos and ruin. Competing factions vie for control, including several members of the Inquisition intent on retaking the ship. Can you gain your freedom before the Imperium’s claws close around you once and for all?

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to once again participate in Free RPG day, an annual event that encourages RPG enthusiasts to demo current and upcoming titles. This year, you’re invited to take part in Broken Chains, an introductory adventure for Black Crusade. When the dark gods show you an opportunity to escape certain death at the hands of the Imperium, will you have the cunning and strength to seize it?

Glory and Power Await

This free introduction to Black Crusade includes a full adventure, four pre-generated characters, and a set of basic rules to help players and Game Masters become familiar with the Black Crusade roleplaying game. See if your local retailer is participating at the Free RPG Day Retailer Locator.

Do you live in the Roseville, Minnesota area? In honor of Free RPG Day, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center will be giving away free copies of Broken Chains, and RPG developers Sam Stewart, Ross Watson, Mack Martin, and Andrew Fischer will be in attendance to answer questions and run introductory sessions. Sign up now at the Event Center to play Black Crusade with a 40K RPG designer!

Black Crusade 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 Disciples of the Dark Gods, working against the rule of the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man and in pursuit of personal glory.

Beautiful. Hope I can grab it at one of the nearby stores. Thanks, FFG.

 Firstly: Whee! "You awake in a prison cell" is an old standard, but I believe it's the first time where the characters definitely deserve to be there...

Secondly, is there a specific reason why the logo at the top says Free RPG Day 2010?

[ADMIN: Fixed. Thanks!]

The scenario's title and premise fits in well with the given themes for Black Crusade. I'm looking forward to downloading this.

That's great news that we'll get a taste of the game so soon.  Thank you FFG!

Marquee Models (Harlow, Essex - ) are hosting a FREE RPG DAY on the 18th June in store...

Check out our in store activities for more details..  Black Crusade is one most talked about in store - so much anticipation (and pre-orders which is always a good sign)

If anyone in the south-east of the UK (specifically, Reading) is interested in playing Black Crusade with one of the game's developers, I will be running Broken Chains as soon as I get a copy (it won't be on Free RPG Day, as my local store, Eclectic Games, isn't participating this year - it clashes with a significant Magic: The Gathering release which takes priority for them, apparently)

Once again the cover art is wonderful.
