More Chaos, Less Confusion
Download the new Black Crusade Errata / FAQ and sow Chaos across the worlds
Black Crusade | Published 10 April 2012

Ultimate power doesn’t have to be confusing. The life of a servant to Chaos already demands strength and cunning. Your enemies come after you with blades and bolters, and the bodies and souls of lesser servants are prone to breaking down, unable to bear the gifts bestowed upon them by the Ruinous Powers. As you war to spread your reputation across the Screaming Vortex, aspiring to have your accomplishments recognized by the Dark Gods themselves, you want clarity in your actions, not confusion.

Responding to player feedback, the Black Crusade design team has drafted errata and an FAQ (pdf, 11.0 MB) to update your campaign. A printer-friendly version of the document is also available on the game’s support page.

Producer Tim Huckelbery on the Black Crusade Errata / FAQ:

The Black Crusade Errata / FAQ document addresses the mechanics issues our player base identified in the Black Crusade Core Rulebook, Game Master’s Kit, and the adventure, Hand of Corruption. Although many of these issues are relatively minor, we hope that by correcting and clarifying where needed we can further improve and streamline the game’s play.

For example, there was some confusion over player characters’ starting experience, and the characteristics tied to certain skills. Both of these have been clarified. In the case of the Intimidation Skill, we concluded that Intimidation in Black Crusade, specifically, should be more a factor of the Heretic’s willpower than a measure of their strength, especially in the Screaming Vortex where you should never judge your foe just by his size.

There were lots of questions about how to work the “Heavy” and “Throwing” Weapon Specializations in the Talents and Traits chapter, and these have been properly removed to make that area work as intended. We also clarified the Charge Action, and it is now clearly articulated so that Heretics can perform a Standard Attack (or Grapple) at the end of a charge, but not a Swift Attack or All Out Attack.

We also addressed some of the common questions we’ve received from players in person or online. The document answers more than 25 Frequently Asked Questions, and we feel that making our responses available to all players will improve the Black Crusade experience. Thanks to everyone for your questions, comments, and, of course, for playing! 

Errata for the Errata God,
   –Tim
