Glad to see this! Congratulations on your gaining this license! The 40krpg's have been my favorite since they came out!

The Wrath & Glory forums are now open, for those of you who already have accounts here. I will be publicizing them tomorrow, but feel free to make yourself at home in the meantime.

I just checked the forum. I see they're all up, but locked.
Am I too soon?

Only the first forum (for official announcements) should be off-limits for new topics. My posts are locked, because they're just informative. You should be able to create new topics in any of the other forums.

That is a good question. I would guess that Nico was probably filming it, but I don't know for sure. I will find out soon.

Any more word on a video, Eric?

...and though it's a bit of a stretch to call this RPG news, it looks like GW is exploring some xenos background

  • Ulisses wants to go places and develop things not covered before
  • Game mechanic is a d6 dice pool, designed to be smooth, fast, action oriented, easy to learn, and not rules intensive
  • Game mechanic borrows from TORG Eternity (primary influence), and the feel of Savage Worlds, D&D 5th, and Savage Rifts
  • Core book will have: (1) game system; (2) character generation; and (3) general 40K background
  • Core book is a basic system that can be applied to a broad variety of campaigns. play styles, etc. - Ulisses will not follow the more narrow-focused books of the past edition
  • Character advancement will be open, with the exception of some more restricted iconic abilities
  • The system will take diverse power levels into account, and allow play from gritty to epic
  • The systems supports a great variety of play styles, from combat to diplomacy to social
  • The system will have something like "Fate Points"
  • Psychic power system allows channeling variable amounts of power; more power = more dangerous; high risk = high reward
  • Ecclesiarchal abilities help resist corruption - priests and Sisters of Battle will have access to these
  • Campaign sets will include: (1) Linked adventures like Pathfinder Adventure Paths; (2) Setting detail books; and (3) Character option books
  • 1st Campaign will be Imperium Nihilus
  • Imperium Nihilus Campaign will focus on the diverse characters of the Imperium that can respond to the crisis, and thus may include very different characters in a ragtag group
  • 2nd Campaign will be Eldar (possible name = Doom of the Eldar)
  • Other Campaigns may include: Orks, Tau, Necrons
  • Adventure concepts they'd like to explore include: visiting the Black Library, hunting fallen Phoenix Lords, speaking with Exodite World Spirits, fighting in the pits of Commorragh, and other big concepts
  • There will be a beginner box that supports new players, with pre-gen characters, an adventure, etc.
