Hello Dark Heresy Second Edition Beta Testers!
Every week, we will post a weekly update to keep you informed about the progress of the beta. This post will include any big news involving the beta, guidance on where we would like you to focus your attention in the coming week, and a PDF update to the beta document to keep you informed of the most recent tweaks and changes to the Dark Heresy Second Edition core rules.
This week’s update (pdf, 4.8 MB) can be found on the beta support page and includes new items (in red). Additionally, there is a dedicated thread in the Game Mechanics forum in which you can discuss any feedback directly related to this week’s update. As always, you can email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to best ensure we see your feedback too. As a reminder, when you submit your feedback via e-mail, it is most helpful to us if you consolidate multiple questions and comments into a single message, rather than sending a separate e-mail for each question or comment.
Testing the Beta
As mentioned above, each week we will concentrate on a certain aspect of the Dark Heresy Second Edition rules that we would like you to focus on testing in that week. This will allow us to take a deeper look at individual features, and help facilitate more in-depth discussions. Keep in mind, however, that these topics are just the focus for the week, and you are welcome to continue testing whatever aspect of the rules you wish at your own pace. Any and all feedback is welcome at any time.
The end of beta testing is coming soon, so it's time to look at the game as a whole! This week, we'd like beta testers to generate characters anew, using all the updates, and play several games with some xp advancement. We want to see reports that show problems with advancing Acolytes a few levels including buying and using new Armoury items. GMs, please try out as many NPCs in your games as possible and let us know how they work. If possible, also try many of the narrative tools in your games as well to ensure they are working properly.
We look forward to your thoughts and opinions as the beta progresses. Thank you all for your invaluable feedback and insight during this process! We appreciate your help in making Dark Heresy Second Edition the best game possible!
Dark Heresy Second Edition is an upcoming addition to Fantasy Flight Game’s line of Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying games. In Dark Heresy Second Edition, players take on the roles of Acolytes (or even Inquisitors), standing at the front line of a great and secret war to root out threats that imperil all of humanity. Should they fail, entire worlds, systems, and sectors may fall to endless night.
The Dark Heresy Second Edition beta provides an abridged, electronic version of the full book. For information on participating in the beta process, visit our description page.
