Hello everyone, and welcome to a new beta testing period for Dark Heresy Second Edition! We’ve very exciting to get your feedback on this new version, and look forward to working with you to create a great game.
If you haven’t already, check out the announcement posting here: http://www.fantasyfl...s.asp?eidn=4518
We’ve also posted revised versions of the Player Sheet and Character Creation Supplement in the Support area here as well: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite_sec.asp?eidm=243&esem=4
We’re planning for a 6 week testing timeline, with the first update coming next week (each Wednesday, if all goes well). This week we’d like everyone to concentrate on Chapters I & II, covering the core game mechanics, character creation, elite advances, and feedback on the Player Sheet. Build some characters and see if the process is clear and fun for you and your group. Some characters could be randomly made, others specifically made to create a pre-envisioned Acolyte. Try out some Elite Advances and play with the online character creation supplement too!
The plan for the following weeks is:
Week 2: Chapters III & IV with Skills, Talents, & Traits.
Week 3: Chapter V on the Armoury including vehicles, and Chapter VI for Psychic Powers.
Week 4: Chapter VII covering Combat and Vehicle Combat.
Week 5: Chapters VIII & IX on Narrative Tools, Reinforcement Characters, and the Game Master.
Week 6: Chapter XII covering NPCs, Threats, and Adversary Building, and Chapter XIII’s beta testing adventure Seeds of Heresy.
We’ll note more details on each as we hit that week’s focus.
Please look over the feedback guidelines here: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite_sec.asp?eidm=243&esem=1. We have sub-forums as well for postings on the adventure, specific game mechanics, general discussion areas, and proofreading changes.
Any questions, post here or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you about any aspects of the beta and Dark Heresy in general. Thanks in advance for your support!
