Just a quick summary of what this post is going to be about, before I get started on what will undoubtedly be a terrible piece of fiction.
Dark Heresy is a pen-and-paper role playing game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Last week we played our first game and finished up what you’d call “Scene One” last night.
If you’re not familiar with the Warhammer 40,000 setting, I’ll try and write it in a manner that makes enough sense to you. If you are familiar with 40K, I’ll probably have to apologise for butchering it.
This has been something my friend and I have been working on for quite some time but have never really got around to doing. We used to play pen-and-paper games – D&D, Warhammer 40,000, Inquisitor, D20 etc – back in high-school, but never really found the right group. Now that we’re older, however, we reckon we can find a couple of people who will dedicate the time to see this adventure through to the end.
My friend and I are both storytellers and performers and want to create some kind of sprawling narrative that we both have input in. It might sound a bit wanky to some, but to me it’s actually feels like I’m building a world and a character.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy mission one of our Dark Heresy campaign:
