From the pages of the Blackindustries website -MARCH 14 2006 (Nottingham, England)
2007 will mark the 20th anniversary of the first publication of Games Workshop’s legendary Warhammer 40,000 game system. It’s no coincidence that March 2007 will also see one of the most eagerly awaited events in gaming history – the release of Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay (40KRP)! Rumours have been circulating in the roleplay community for many years about such a game. Now Black Industries, fresh from the success of the revamped Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, can reveal that it really will be happening, and in a way no one is expecting. Because there won’t be one 40KRP game, but three!
Warhammer 40,000: Dark Heresy will be the first 40KRP game, allowing players to take on the role of an Inquisitor’s retinue. Their task is to uproot the taint of Chaos in Imperial society, to smash dark cults and foil sinister plots. It’s a game of investigation and will be an ideal introduction to the dark and gothic universe of the 41st Millennium. Dark Heresy is just the beginning, however. After this basic game, two further games released eighteen months apart will allow the players to progress and explore the universe first as Rogue Traders and alien pirates, and eventually experienced players will be able to roleplay the devastating warriors of the Adeptus Astartes Deathwatch.
All three games use the same game system, which is itself based in part upon the award-winning Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. Players will be able to progress from one system to the next, as they gain experience and a measure of understanding of the vastly detailed universe of Warhammer 40,000. Each of the games will consist of a core rulebook accompanied by regular releases of sourcebooks and adventures.
Game design is being handled by Green Ronin , the team who helped create the sensational new version of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay so successfully in 2005, and much of the background is being handled by the Black Library’s team of writers.
For more information as it becomes available keep an Inquisitorial eye on www.blackindustries.com. But remember, heretic: innocence proves nothing.
Sounds pretty cool. I think that it's good that you start as something like an acolyte just helping in an investigation. I was worried about if this kind of thing ever happenned where you could choose different races, that the imperium would just wipe the floor of everyone else. This seems more balanced, and pretty cool.
Et imperator Invocato Diabolus Daemonica Exorcist!
That sounds great! Now all I have to do is find peeps to roleplay with me.

I haven't done any roleplay for ages, but this sounds cool. I think it is good that they aren't allowing people to play Marines straight away, to be honest they can't be that hard to roleplay. Can you imagine the character sheet:
Class: Adeptus Astartes
Skills: Smiting the enemies of mankind in the Emperors name
Demeanour: Follows the orders of his seniors as if they were the word of god
Weapons: Big gun, huge armour.
The idea of playing a rogue trader sounds pretty interesting though.
Helper monkey, bring me beer and donuts
Maybe im just getting this mixed up but isent Inquisitor 40K roleplay?
Ask not the ruleboys a question for they shall give you three answers each true and terrifying to behold
I dont get it.
What are thye doing and what is WHFRP? Is it like D and D? OR like on of those mud things?
It's been a minute.
Warhammer fantasy roleplay is your classical pen-and-paper roleplay, quite good as well, and this will be the 40k version.
More like a crossbreed between wargame and roleplay.Maybe im just getting this mixed up but isent Inquisitor 40K roleplay?
