“There are few things like the fury of an orbital strike, and none so terrifying to behold from the surface of a world. It is as if the hand of the God-Emperor Himself is reaching down to wipe away His enemies in a storm of light and fire."
–Master of Ordnance Halbast Dain, 17th Scintillan Airborne Assault Group
This past Saturday, June 16th, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center and retailers all over the world participated in Free RPG Day, an annual celebration of roleplaying games and their place in your friendly local game store. Our contribution to this exciting tradition was an introductory adventure for Only War, an all-new standalone Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of soldiers in the Imperial Guard, the galaxy-spanning armies of the God-Emperor.
Warhammer 40,000 developer Andrew Fischer runs Eleventh Hour
Eleventh Hour is a gripping story that presents you and fellow squadmates with tough questions about honor and survival. In fewer than eleven hours, the Imperium will commence its orbital bombardment of an Ork-infested death world. You and your squadmates must make the dangerous trek through kilometres of dense, xenos-covered jungle, all while facing time-consuming questions of duty, honor, and compassion. Will you have the strength to embody the ideals of the Imperial Guard?
A Variety of Outcomes
Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay developers Andrew Fischer, Max Brooke, and Tim Huckelbery were at the FFG Event Center running sessions, and when faced with these moral issues, their players’ responses ran the gamut. One group managed to evacuate the death world with all their wounded in tow...while another quickly decided to use a screaming, wounded comrade to bait an Ork scouting party into an explosive trap.
