Wonder if this means FFG will do further RPGs based in 40k, playing races other than humans next maybe?

Also, why does this get its own forum category, is it really that special?!

It is a stand alone game, so far those have received their own forums thus far.

This is what I'm most excited about. I like Chaos, but more character options in the form of xenos is what I'm waiting for.

Only issue is that it'll be very hard to justify a party of people from different 40K RPGs working together.

An Eldar RPG would be very exciting to see.

Agreed.  I would be extremely pleased by that.

Yeah, I agree this announcement totally knocked my socks off.  Whether or not it will be a purchase remains to be seen, I'm not particularly fond of Chaos but I admit they have plenty of RP potential.  For the most part I'm surprised the game has actually expanded beyond the intended trilogy and produced this.  Now the question remains... how will this interconnect with the original three RPGs and the metric ton of players handbooks, published adventures, and setting supplements?

Long time Chaos fan, so really this whole thing has me psyched. I'm wondering how much detail they'll go into on Chaos Space Marines to begin with. I'll be thrilled if they eventually put out a sourcebook covering the Legion, though. :D

This really came as a surprise for me.
I am wondering what else is in store?

Green Power! The eco Warriors who say Waagh

Silent Meditation! A game of enigmatic Aliens and the riddle of the Wrathbone

To serve the Queen! Tyranids on the loose

 

Oh the possibilities.

I would like to see FFG fix the errors in their current games and bring interessting Stuff for them and increades quality standards for missprints instead of bumping a new RPG every year!

Serieously, who needs that?

 Well this game might have come under the radar but this has got me psyched for the 40K setting once again.

Dark Heresy, Deatchwatch, Rogue Trader..now this. Are they really need to be all NEW standalone RPG systems, with tons of additional books?

Im not saying I will not buy it. I`m just wondering of a purpose of new system, instead of huge addon for those that already exist...

It's come in under the radar because all the people involved, myself included, had to go to FFG's secret temple and take part in a ritual over an eight-pointed star alter, where we were anointed in the blood of servants of the False Emperor, and in being sworn to secrecy, had our tongues branded with the names of the Chaos Gods.

And then came.... the dreaded legal documentation!

I actually mean't that FFG had initially put it in the roleplaying games forum sub section rather than the RPGs sub section, but they've moved it now.

Roleplaying games sub section is still there strangely, but now has nothing in it....

Wow. Just WOW.

I never had any inkling anyhting like this was in the pipeline! And judging by the general reaction on here, neither were the rest of the community.

This is what I love about FFG; always pushing higher and higher (I'd akin it to addiction, chasing the next fix but this is a family site and quite wholesome so I shall not mention such things...oh). Although White Wolf Publishing should get kudos for breaking away from orthodox protagonists.

Celebration! Who wouldn't like the option of expanding the 40k rpg experience? I for one will be getting this (not addicted, no). I quite like the idea of the snivelling, back stabbing cultist turned warp tainted, soul consuming sorcerer!

Yeah. Everybody's seen it.  Doesn't mean it's not funny and applicable.
