“Embrace your hunger, your lust, your desire. The universe is ours for the taking!”
–Sanctifer LeVay, Cult of the Sacred Union
It is the 41st millennium, a time of constant strife. For untold billions, merely to be born is to be condemned to a lifetime of cruel suffering under an unforgiving and draconian regime. Only a select few in positions of power are permitted limited freedom: the Inquisitors who hunt heretics, the Rogue Traders who gather wealth, and the Deathwatch Space Marines who combat the alien threat. But there are those who nonetheless claim power, seeking personal glory and dark notoriety by any means necessary...
This remarkable experience offers players a new perspective on the conflict between the Imperium of Man and the forces of Chaos by delivering the unprecedented opportunity to play as a Disciple of the Dark Gods, whether as a Chaos Space Marine or a human Servant of Chaos.
“It is not enough to defeat your foe. His people must be ravaged, homeland laid waste, and his reputation laid bare. Only then will your name be known as a true servant of the gods.”
–Battlelord Octavius Kohl
Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader, and Deathwatch each portray loyalty to the Imperium from multiple perspectives. Throughout them all, however, one common factor is Chaos: the ubiquitous antagonist responsible for much of what defines this immersive setting. But with Black Crusade, players can examine this exciting universe through an entirely new lens. Who are the characters, and what set them on the path of corruption? Are they willingly in league with the enemies of humanity, or are they merely the deluded slaves of forces far beyond their comprehension?
Bring Order to Chaos
“Make war upon the Imperium of Man? What is it you think the Legions have been doing for the last ten thousand years? War does not end with a single victory or a single planet. It is an eternal creature that outlives men and their tiny triumphs."
–Arzyn the Silencebringer, warrior of the World Eaters

Yes.......and so it begins my brothers and sisters. The destruction of the Corpse-Emperor! Blessed be the name of Lorgar!......O.K., I am excited, how could you tell?
Just wondering though: When will the PDF version come out?
Finally a game that lets you do exactly what you do as a munchkin in DnD (lie, steal, kill) in the name of God!
Would have been a great Christmas present. Nothing says Christmas like a copy of Black Crusade under the Christmas tree. Warms the heart.
Took them long enough but thank god. now to head to my local retailer and read through it.
