We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive. It’s Game of Thrones meets Gladiator on Arrakis As in, until you actually understand what’s written there and stop mistaking fluff for rules?

Others have small or large armies of interrogators and acolytes, contacts and snitches, and rarely take a direct hand in matters themselves. And as there is no rule saying that a Vindicare can’t use power armor and still get all the effects of the Career, any ruling saying its not is inherently arbitrary and from a pure system perspective it’s a smart option: That’s what it’s meant for!

Do not link to, request or encourage piracy in any way. Describing itself as a book about power, it is really a book about ambition – and how to empower your characters to reach even more dizzying heights than even they might have dreamed about.

How stupid does one have to be to let the psykers live at all if the supposed best of the best are that unstable?

The player of a Vindicare needs to understand his role and status within the party. So, my Dark Heresy campaign of 3 years is soon to reach Ascension 15,xp.


It’s commonly cited that the GM’s job is to prevent abuse. Better yet it’s not an essential book – it’s an expansion for Dark Heresy that takes it beyond the standard boundaries of the regular game much like the Grey Knight career in Daemon Hunter.

First and foremost is the Vindicare. It shoehorns existing characters into the new classes, but many of the original translate poorly into ascension. And Ascension is objectively very weak on most of those counts. Further, if you start taking power away from your players, they eventually will start asking “so, why the hell am I ascended anyway?

Or it might not, and they have another piece of information from their failure.

An extinction level event. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality. You make the decision to stop it or not. These are not “Dungeon crawlers” but rather those that decide how and where the dungeon will be built!

Villains in Heeesy are not your run of the mill smugglers, heretics, and ne’er-do-wells. The movie makes it all a little bit prettier than it was in real life, but the book really drives the point home.

And thus you can point to the book dqrk say “that’s what it says,” as opposed to levying an arbitrary houserule simply because you don’t like the player being clever. Overall I found this to be a good book, great artwork as usual and a lot of fun. It sounds like you’ve done a good job pulling material from the other FFG 40krpgs to shore up DH’s aging facade.

Posted January 22, Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. As a whole; I think players and Gm’s need to realise what ascension is. I believe everyone who claims to enjoy himself playing Ascension. But anyone’s personal experience is only useful to himself, whereas game books should be judged by more objective criteria – how good the mathematical model is, what does hwresy game do to support the playstyle it claims to encourage, how do various options presented to players compare against each other, and so forth.


I’d like to hear more about your house rules, I was fairly unimpressed when I first read Dark Heresy, and would be excited to hear how you’ve made it work. Please refrain from personal attacks and any homophobic comments.

And, again, it’s all just based on wishful thinking, because nothing in the rules stops the Vindicare from layering an Eldar force field and a heavy power armor on top of all sscension Reactions and his never-failing Dodge rolls.

So all those problems you were given as an Acolyte, being able to buck the ascenaion off and let the Inquisitor deal with it It’s fortunate, then, that the Vindicare is absolutely the best career for soloing the big bads. Ascension was one of the regretful times when I jumped at the new product, and it destroyed my year long DH campaign, previously the most fun game I’ve ran and the one campaign my team will remember for years.
