Daemon Hunter, an upcoming supplement for Dark Heresy, will be on store shelves very soon. A powerful resource for campaigns featuring the servants of the holy Ordo Malleus of the Inquisition, Daemon Hunter features information and background on the Ordo Malleus in the Calixis Sector, the Daemon hunter’s trade, and the Malleus armoury. Dark Heresy’s developer took the time to share some additional details on this exciting upcoming title.
With Daemon Hunter hitting stores soon, excitement has been growing for all the new toys in the toy box. Last time, we previewed a few new tricks for GMs, so this time I thought I’d focus on what Daemon Hunter has in store for players.
One of the most secretive orginisations in all of the Warhammer 40,000 universe are the Holy Ordos. With the three largest Ordos well established, it is high time to slip some of the smaller groups into Dark Heresy. Enter the Ordo Sicarius Initiate. Far from the training grounds of Imperial Assassins, the Ordo Sicarius has little presence in the Calixis sector, but that doesn’t mean their influence is unfelt. The Ordo Malleus certainly knows the usefulness of Acolytes trained by the specialists within their fellow Ordo. Check out this week's preview of the Ordo Sicarius Initiate!

New Backgrounds and Cell Directives
Of course, new Alternate Career Ranks aren’t all that Daemon Hunter has to offer. Several new backgrounds can also be found in this tome of Daemon killing. These backgrounds serve as reasons for conscription into the Ordo Malleus. Be it Corporeal Sanctification, a horrific process by which a servant is prepared for battle against the Daemonic, or the dark souled Fate-Eaters, the new backgrounds in Daemon Hunter make creating a new Acolyte for a campaign a unique experience.
Lastly, of course, are the Cell Directives. One of the dark secrets of the Holy Ordos is that sometimes one of their own must be hunted down. The Ordo Sicarius Initiate, other Assassins, or skill Acolytes may form a cell of Carta Extremis Hunters. Tasked with bringing a fellow Inquisitor to justice, this dangerous task requires dangerous training. This Cell Directive and more await players in Daemon Hunter.
Look for Daemon Hunter, a supplement for Dark Heresy, on store shelves very soon!
Dark Heresy 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 Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man.
Die Heretic Scum! Great game so far. As the main GM for my group I highly recommend this game series.
"Sicarius training? Looks nice, but I think all these added goodies for "all career" are sometimes a bit off. Imho the cleric got a bad deal with "Disturbing Voice" since it does has its disadvantages. "Talented (Intimidation)" would have done the same trick."
Yeah, seems wierd. Here you get disturbng voice, but you get swift attack! Seems a bit unbalanced and unfair LOL.
New ranks for my SOB.....score
For an elite agent meant to monitor and possibly destroy Temple Assassins I am really NOT seeing this alternate career as having any real value to accomplish such a feat, or barely even the foundation to build on and some day aspire to abject brokenness. Can we have the damn book already?!
Psy Rating?! Intriguing.
Is "Sicarius Training" and " Sicarius Tutoring" the same thing?
Aaaaaaah, the good old teaser material is back at last!
