    Rogue Trader RPG

    For those of you familiar with the universe of Warhammer 40,000 I would highly recommend Rogue Trader. It is a great opportunity to delve into the universe in a manner that deviates from mass combat and into personal interaction and the discovery of the vast universe that man has spread out into. The game orients itself around a Rogue Trader and his/her crew, aboard a spacefaring vessel of some kind. There are a good number of careers to pick from, a variety of equipment, such as weapons, armor, cybrenetic implants, as well as powerful psychic abilities. If you have played Dark Heresy, then Rogue Trader is an upgrade (I mean that literally, in the systematic sense).

    If you are not familiar with the Warhammer 40K universe, then I would recommend this game if you are into RPG's in general, or if you have an interest in sci-fi, gothic, fantasy, or any other games that simply have a unique setting. Though the system is not my favorite kind of gaming system, I have to admit that it works very well with respect to whatever you are doing in the game. I would highly recommend this game, regardless.

    Plying the Spacelanes of the 40K universe

    Rogue Trader is the second of three compatible RPG lines set in the Universe of the Warhammer: 40K miniatures games, a dystopian future of intolerant religious zealotry, lost-tech, and near-constant war. Players will play the key individuals in the crew of Merchant or Naval ships, conducting various "Endeavours" which hope to improve the wealth of the Ship and Crew. Extensive and expansive rules covering character generation, ship construction, character social interaction, personal and ship combat, and the higher end weaponry and gear of the 40K universe. A number of aliens are presented as well, but only in opponent write-ups, not as player character races. The book is a large (9"x12"x1") glossy color hardcover, with gorgeous layout, excellent artwork, plenty of Fluff-text, and well written rules. It suffers mainly from sheer size; with all the included materials, it can be hard to find certain things. The 40K collector: The setting and background material, well more than 20% of the book, is grounds alone for a 40K fan to pick it up. That it's an excellent Roleplaying system as well is a bonus. THe fluff text is also very faithful to the current edition of Warhammer: 40K. The Space Fantasy Roleplayer: The system is very well written, and characters are fully compatible with those in Dark Heresy and Deathwatch. The game is playable with just the core book, 2 ten-sided dice, paper and pencil, but photocopies or printouts of the various sheets in the back are helpful; Fantasy Flight Games provides printable versions of the sheets on their website.

    Excellent Sequel to Dark Heresy

    I for one enjoyed the futuristic goth science fiction drama of Dark Heresy, and I find Rogue Trader to be an excellent sequel story arc to the original content. The system comes with ground rules for transfering your old Dark Heresy characters into this setting, and also offers a wide variety of new professions to build from. The setting is the same Monotheistic Horror Story, but now you have more worlds and more species and ideas to explore.
