Hello again everybody, I am on a quest of gather as much of the GW Specialist Games material as I can and my search for Inquisition has brought me here.

Games Workshop/Specialist Games/Inquisition

I have added what free stuff I could form Dark Heresy but my main goal is to make sure I have everything Inquisition so I am turning to this community for help. If you know about any PDF's please let me know.

PS, if anyone wants the rules to any of the other Specialist Games please contact me.

Dark Heresy  - 
 
A keeper of the Imperium’s laws who has taken his shock maul to the darkest shadows. A priest of the God-Emperor who brings light to His adherents and flame to His foes. A killer-for-hire on ‘permanent retainer’ to the Holy Ordos. A shaman without a soul, wielding her tribe’s knowledge and the void in her heart in defense of Man.

Each Meet the Party article gives you an entire group of ready-to-play adventurers (maybe even some heroes) for your gaming needs for a variety of systems and settings. It’s time to travel back to the grim darkness of the 41st millennium and Meet the Party, acolytes of the Ordo Xenos, from Dark Heresy Second Edition by Fantasy Flight Games!

So this group interests me, I see everyone seems to be playing Dark Heresy, is it Inquisitor with a twist of a stand alone RPG?

Dark Heresy plot thread

'THE CACOPHONOUS CHOIR'

Clementus, a minor Shrine World in the Askellon Sector, is noted for its talented musicians and writers, performing lovely tributes to the Emperor of Mankind and easing the cares and woes of many a Hive Worker or Guardsman. Within the last six months, the output of the musicians' guilds have tripled and the surging influx of pilgrims has been surprising for such a lesser planet. Perhaps a reason for this is the claimed discovery of a cache of writings by a famous long-dead artist?

These songs and plays have reached unprecedented popularity, to levels of obsession in numerous cases throughout the Sector; citizens often neglect their duties to enjoy the transcendent works, and some even join the Choir, swelling its ranks where even novices somehow manifest skill with pitch and tone. Indeed, it would seem that a particularly vibrant and perhaps extreme brand of the Imperial Cult is forming around the Clementus Choir in the city of Carmina. Some in the ranks of the Adeptus Ministorum and the Adeptus Administratum have begun to mutter that these works of art are unhealthy and perhaps dangerous; certainly the descriptions of fell beings and dark deeds in the days of the Saints and Crusades touch on matters best left unspoken.

The Acolytes of Inquisitor Reye Orbys, Ordo Hereticus, are dispatched on their first mission, to aid the rulers of Clementus and discern whether this turn of events is a harmless fad, or the stirring of Heresy...

[SPOILERS FOLLOW!]









200 years ago a singular child prodigy, a singer and composer named Bendix Petrius grew to prominence in recognition of his majestic arrangements of traditional hymns and his own peerless devotional arias. The soaring tenor of Bendix, proclaiming the love and warmth of the Emperor's light brought humble pilgrim and hardened warrior alike to tears. As his fame grew, he and his troupe roamed the world sharing songs of faith and inspiration with the visitors to Clementus, until in his 12th year he had the honor of a performance before the noble houses of the sector capital on Juno.

Fate can be cruel. Enroute to Juno, a particularly nasty Warp storm flared up and a warband of twisted Chaos Marines attacked the ship, slaughtering and torturing those aboard in abominable ways in an orgy of sacrifice to the Prince of Pleasure. Bendix, seeing his death before him, asked only to praise his Emperor one last time. Amused, the Marine relented and even in his debauched, jaded existence he felt a surge of rapturous ecstasy as Bendix's voice soared to unparalleled heights of beauty. Sergeant Amduscias of the Flawless Host perceived the great irony of bringing a famed instrument of Imperial glory under the sway of Chaos, and seized him as a candidate for indoctrination into the ranks of the Noise Marines. After months of torture and psychological programming, the sheltered boy from Clementus was broken and molded into a Chaos Marine, a worshipper of Slaanesh.

Now Brother Bendix is a perverted fiend who composes blasphemous orations mocking the Corpse-Emperor and glorifying the Ruinous Powers. His attractive form and face is heavily pierced and brightly tattooed, ears pointed, his rainbow-hued hair long and braided with needles and hooks that catch and pierce the scalp. Incongruously, his vox amplification customarily deepens his voice to a palpable rumble, his sweetly boyish voice only loosed in the throes of combat. Though he partakes of the vices common to all devotees of Slaanesh, he is addicted to his own harmonious vocalizations over all.

He is indeed the secret author and conductor of these new compositions, each one a bit more complex in arrangements and execution, requiring greater talent and more players, working in obscure notations and novel instruments under the talented guidance of the Noise Marine. The whisperings of Heresy are gradually worked into the lyrics and subject matter as the works grow in popularity and the listeners hunger for performances of greater length and extremity.

This first scenario sets the scene for a campaign against the cult of The Word, the doctrines espoused by the Word Bearers Traitor Marines in an insidious plan to subvert several minor world seeded by the followers of Lorgar. [Inspired by the novel 'Dark Omega' by Felix M. Bloom] The overall plan is to claim some of the worlds near the Warp Storms to as a launching point for plunder, recruits and harassing attacks, expanding influence until they can strike at the primary worlds of the Sector's military strength and governance. There will of course be red herrings and treachery on the PCs' way to discovering this threat to the Imperium, with the possibility of a Genestealer cult, mutant Hive gangers venerating a curious xenos idol, and a pack of witches hunting them and their Inquitor patron(s) and allies as complications or side quests to the primary mission of

The Acolytes may face the Space Marine at the end of the adventure as a sign they have uncovered the beginnings of something truly dire. Aside from the enjoyment his role brings him, the GM may wish to ascribe motivations to Bendix for undertaking such a dangerous role. Perhaps he is there to foster heresy and dissent as an end goal, a distraction, or a deadly trap for unwary Inquitors. He is very likely in the employ of the Cult of the Word; possibly they know of tech or a xenos artifact he desires to reach new heights of depravity, or power?

Black Crusade  - 
 
Going to run Broken Chains starter scenario next weekend for @TRFpodcast; tips from GMs who have run it before?

4-5 players. Maybe filling in the gaps between the decks or avoiding murder servitor/Acolyte-induced TPK?

One player knows little of 40K, I mostly know it from online/rpg research and reading a decent amount of fiction. One player is a RT veteran and she and the other rpg vet are very clever and devious.

I think it's a great intro to the rpg and the 40K universe, and it might lead to further BC or Dark Heresy games.

Thanks!

I wholeheartedly endorse the Grim Dark Podcast in their category for the ENnies as best podcast.

I'd also like to note that, since Fantasy Flight is, amazingly, not up for anything in the individual product categories, the only way to speak up as fans of Warhammer 40000 RPGs  (or even Fantasy Flight's Star Wars RPGs) is to vote for Fantasy Flight in the favorite publisher category.

I'm not saying that you have to.  I'm just saying that it's what the Emperor would want you to do.

Thanks for reading my first plot thread, and the +1s! I am running Black Crusade 'Broken Chains' next week, then we will start a short Dark Heresy game. Prob do the quickstart then run 'The Cacaphonous Choir' posted earlier.

Ideas for the next two stories: 'Hunter's Moon' (Predator on a Death World) and 'Honey and Sulphur' (Fuedal World mix of Countess Bathory & Gilles de Rais)

That's an Ordo Hereticus, Xenos and Malleus by happenstance...

For Hunter's Moon, the adversary will be a Kroot! Read that some ate Eldar and gained illusion based Psyker powers (explains cloaking) -just need to decide if he is rogue killer or why he is hunting various humans... Perhaps they have latent psyker or mutant genes he wants, or he (likely) fed on Chaos worshippers and has become even more of a Predator...

Dark Heresy - Emperor Preserve Campaign
The Inquisitorial Cell finally acquired their quarry, but instead of arranging a meeting with the Emperor, they informed Barabbas of his new job with the Holy Ordos.  It became clear that the juvenile ganger's orientation might take time, however, as unexplained gale force winds erupted in only their location, throwing some to the ground.

So now off to see what has caused this cloud of dark smoke over Sinophia Magna and "negotiating" an end to the unrest that threatens the Imperium's governance.

Full After-Action Report attached (unauthorized access is strictly forbidden).
