“A right dangerous place, to be sure. Only a madman would make it a habit to travel there...but as the saying goes, only the insane truly prosper!”
–Sarvus Trask, Rogue Trader
A great beast has awakened from beyond the edges of the Koronus Expanse, hungering to fulfill its dark purpose. Before you and your fellow Explorers can attempt to seek it out and ultimately destroy it, you must uncover what and where it is. Finding the answer is a nearly impossible undertaking, pitting you against an infamous pirate lord blessed by Chaos.
On the hunt to discover the cause of vanishing settlements, increased xenos sightings, and aggressive confrontations between the Rogue Traders and a mysterious group of raiding pirate vessels, you and your fellow Explorers are thrust on a perilous journey. The key to your quest lies hidden at the Casket of Secrets, in the very heart of the Citadel of Skulls, Karrad Vall’s home. Prepare to attempt the ultimate heist: stealing a priceless artefact that belonged to a legendary starship from Karrad Vall’s vault. No sane person has ever risked entering the Faceless Lord’s inner sanctum, let alone stealing from him...until you.
The Ultimate Heist
Can you and your fellow Explorers navigate safely through your impending expedition? Your journey begins with strange developments, untrustworthy guides, and the awakened mysterious force shadowing your every step. The way to Vall’s seat of power is blocked by potential hazards and a sky full of raiders, slavers, and reavers. Plot your course through Vall’s dark cathedral, past quivering slaves and brutal enemies, bloody chambers, and the ossuaries full of bones that give the Citadel its name. And once you reach the Casket of Secrets you’ll meet “the Archivist.”
Citadel of Skulls can be played as a standalone adventure or connected to the events introduced in The Frozen Reaches. Will you be able to withstand the voyage?
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.
I am not as positive about this one as Angmar is. It is not bad in the "Black Sepulchre" sense of being bad.
It is, however rather railroading and "muddy". The world info is good, but the re-usability is ... well... not if you play the adventure :)
It is by no means a "must buy". But it is not a "stay away from it!" either. If you have something else to spend your coin on (budget-wise), I would tend to say "spend the coin elsewhere"
It's ok. After the very good Frozen Reaches I was disappointed. The plot is a little flaky, however the info on Iniquity is great and it has some fun NPC's.
is it any good? is it a must buy
"Me, too!" :)
The good thing about being a customer to RPGDriveThru is that they give you the information as soon as the PDF is available ...if you allow them to SPAM you with infos.. which is alright with me.
I bought this at Drivethru weeks ago...
