Deathwatch | Published 31 May 2011


“Your future lies with the Chapter. The past is dust. Build upon that foundation and you shall stand tall amongst your Battle-Brothers.”
     –Chaplain Gotthold of the Black Templars

The Deathwatch stands vigil over some of the most dangerous regions in the galaxy, sentinels against the vile forces of hostile alien races and ancient tombs best left undisturbed. The Imperium has endured for ten thousand years thanks in no small part to the secret victories of the Deathwatch over the foes that would see the Emperor’s realm cast down and destroyed. The Space Marines of the Deathwatch cherish each such hard-won victory, for the galaxy is a vast and dangerous place, with numerous aliens, heretics, and daemons clamouring to take the place of each defeated enemy. To stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Deathwatch is to hold back serried tides of inhuman foes time and again, struggling to survive against the galaxy’s most deadly of threats. It is an honour that each and every Deathwatch Space Marine bears with pride.

This indispensable tome provides a host of additional options for players and GMs alike, expanding on many of the ideas, themes, and systems present in the Deathwatch rulebook while offering means to enrich and add detail to the adventures of a Kill-team in the Jericho Reach.
