Greetings Dark Heresy fans!

This week I am proud to announce the 2009 Dark Heresy Adventure Contest!

The contest for this year has a special theme—the Radical side of the Inquisition! Mutants, heresy, daemons, aliens and much more are all fair game. From Radicals as the protagonists to purging the Radical taint in the name of Puritan ideals, all are up for grabs. Last year’s contest produced some excellent entries, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the adventures for this year!

The official rules are presented below.
