Dark Heresy 1E

by Thursday 21 December 2017
As our final offers of 2017 we presented two new collections featuring the 2008 First Edition of Dark Heresy, the first RPG set in the grim, dark future of Warhammer 40,000. Originally published by Black Industries in 2008, Dark Heresy, along with the other WH40K RPGs (Rogue Trader, Deathwatch, Black Crusade, and Only War) are now stewarded by Ulisses Spiele, publisher of The Dark Eye and the new Torg Eternity. Ulisses is also hard at work on a brand-new RPG in the WH40K setting, Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Wrath & Glory.

1. DARK HERESY ESSENTIALS [start here]

Dark Heresy 1E Essentials had the core rules and major supplements — everything you need to begin your career as an Imperial Inquisitor in service to the Emperor. If you’re new to Dark Heresy, start with these books.

There were four titles in this offer’s Starter Collection (retail value $85) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks: Those who paid more than this offer’s threshold (average) price also got this offer’s entire Bonus Collection with five more supplements worth an additional $82.50, including Disciples of the Dark Gods (a sourcebook of cults and conspiracies, retail $25); the Creatures Anathema bestiary (retail $20); and all three adventures in the Haarlock’s Legacy series (Tattered Fates, Damned Cities, and Dead Stars, total retail $37.50).

The companion Dark Heresy Judgements offer included important supplements like The Radical’s Handbook and the rest of the 1E line.
