Hi Dark Heresy fans!
Errata, Errata, Errata
This week I have a small but important update: a new version of Dark Heresy errata! Version 3.0 includes some small updates for the core rulebook and a substantial set of updates for The Inquisitor’s Handbook. The Errata is also posted on the Dark Heresy Support Page.
At the printer right now, Tattered Fates should be hitting shelves very soon! Don’t miss out on the first in a trilogy of epic adventures that take your Acolytes into the heart of the Hereticus Tenebrae!
The Next Step
Looking ahead, I see that there will be much to discuss regarding a recent rash of rumors about Radicalism in the Inquisition...
Keep an eye on this space for more, and until next time, may the light of the Golden Throne guide your way.
Dark Heresy is a roleplaying game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the grim darkness of the far future. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving the Inquisition, rooting out heresy and corruption from within the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man.
where has the errata link gone??
New printings of Dark Heresy (and Inqisitors Handbook) have errata mistakes corrected.
For a 'proper' printing of many of the errata, I suspect we'll have to rely on Rogue Trader. According to its designer diary, RT has the same ruleset but cleans up ambiguities, tightens some language and generally gives it a tune-up.
What I'd like to see for DH is the advancement tables from Chapter II done in a downloadable 'cut & paste' format.
A much less cost prohibitive solution would be for either FFG/or a resourceful web artist to creat the errata in a cut/paste format: "cut along the dotted line and use paste...". Wouldn't work for everything but I'm sure many people would be willing. Also the FFG is still a company and as close as we would like to think we all are no company is going to replace copies at a reduced price, what would they do with the old stock?
Another option would be to offer a "flight manual" type publication that would allow you to strip your old book and put it into a binder (sold by FFG) but then updates could be ordered or printed (both at no cost other than shipping).
I agree with Redguy. There are way too many bugs and open ends in the Dark Heresy books. Yet FFG took over a game from another publisher; so I surely don't hold it against them, and I hope future products are edited more thoroughly.
I start to get SICK about getting the price corrections handed "piece by piece".
- first, they corrected Obscura after it was mentionend on the forum that it was MUCH to expensive
- now they fix the Night Dust
...and this will go on, since there are much more "bugged" prices in the inventory (the core rule book hand crossbow for 100 thrones, to name but one).
It would be much much better if two guys from the staff would sit down, write up ALL the prices into a table and spend a workday comparing those, looking for things that just can´t be right. Like a (primitive) hand crossbow that is much more expansive than a laser pistole...
Sorry Redguy, I guess I just read into the text to much. I was a long day at work lol
I think asking for a new edition at a reduced price is wildly optimistic, FFG is working from old stock and the costs for them to reprint would be substantial, asking them to discount any reprint based on some returns policy (which would have to be the only way) seems to be a little pie in the sky.
It would be nice to get any reprints fully updated with the errata however, but I can't see any discounts for handing in your old copies.
Khorne-ucopia, I'm not criticizing FFG. I'm poining at some rather obvious problems with the core rule book and suggesting a solution to the current owner of the game. It's good to have an errata, however, corrected printing of the book is even better. I like FFG, I like Dark Heresy and I'm just trying to suggest something that would make the game even better.
Redguy you do realize they purchased Dark Heresy from another company alittle after it had been release. You should lay off them. Its a great game with great support
Guys, are you planning a new, _corrected_ printing of the core rulebook? Dark Heresy is a great game, however, it is full of bugs and this errata just proves it. Come on, twelve pages full of "should include" and similar items that should have been caught and corrected by editor and playtesters? That's just plain bad. Looking for a rule in rulebook and then in errate really ruins the gameplay. Please, make sure that Rogue Trader has much better quality. Also, if you publish corrected edition of the Dark Heresy, it would be really nice to make it available to owners of first printing at reduced price.
