The Rogue Trader GM's Toolkit
Rogue Trader | Published 31 July 2009

By Rogue Trader RPG Senior Developer, Ross Watson

Greetings Rogue Trader fans!

A while back I created a release schedule for Dark Heresy called Knowledge Is Power. That is particularly powerful title, and I feel it is a truism that can be applied to nearly any pursuit. I’ve also been gaming for over a couple of decades now (Yes, this means I’m getting up into the “middle aged” category!), and I’ve learned that for a Game Master, knowledge is most definitely power.

The Rogue Trader Game Master’s Kit is a great way to put that power into the GM’s hands. First, it contains a fold-out GM’s screen chock-full of vital information straight from the Rogue Trader rulebook. All the critical charts, diagrams, and reference information are right at your fingertips, and the screen is built from FFG’s sturdy, linen-finish stock that makes it a very durable screen indeed! Finally, the screen is paneled on the opposite side with lush, full-colour artwork.

However, the GM’s screen is just part of this package! Also included is a booklet that contains a Rogue Trader adventure suitable for beginning-rank characters, a starship combat summary, a starship construction “cheat sheet,” an NPC vessel generator, and a planet and system generator—a very useful packet of information for any GM!

Look for the Rogue Trader Game Master's Kit to be available this fall.

Rogue Trader is a roleplaying game set in dark gothic far future of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe. Players take on the roles of explorers aboard a Rogue Trader's ship, searching for profit and adventure while discovering new alien cultures and threats in the uncharted regions of space.

Just a friendly reminder:

Rogue Trader: Smuggler, or merchant who skirts the edge of what is legal

Rouge Trader: Avon Lady, Mary Kay Representative

Of course, if you want to paint your ship pink and call it a Cadillac, that's up to you.

I'm not so worried about the pages as the release date...

Trothael, I feel your pain, my players have been after me to runa  game since my last one stopped, when my car got broken into about 2 months back and all my Dark Heresy stuff was stolen. So I promised them that when Rogue Trader Hit, I would run again.

I hope it has all the same feel and flow or DH

My local gaming group have been clamouring for me to GM a Rouge Trader campaign the second it's available. I can't wait to get my hands on this =]

Hopefully the adventure will segue from the published downloadable adventures, and tie in with the main book (as a continuing meta arc).

Ponders When exactly is this fall?

Well, at least I wont be getting this kit (or DH kit) for adventure anayway, I would be buying it for reference screen and ship/planet generators.

 Oh nice! It'll be interesting to see what changes this GM screen has from the DH one. Hopefully some good improvements. ;)

The Dark Heresy GM screen is great use, plus the villains from the DH adventure are good foils for my top rank PCs ;)

 I Tried to play the Dark Heracy game...they all died...painfull. Still i have faith for this copy

Sounds very much like "DarkHeresy GameMasters Kit"..and this isn´t a cheerfull noise. Hopefully, the adventure in here is better when it comes to "balance" and "reason".
