It's certainly worth picking up The Inquisitor's Handbook before beginning anything, as it simply offers a wealth of extra gear (and most importantly, backgrounds) for creating new characters, alternate classes, and expansions on existing skills.

I agree. For chronological reasons the Inquisitors Handbook is best to pick up first.

And don't forget the Sororitas rank, the expanded skills in the back, and goodies like pursuit and crafting rules. And rules for alter egos and contacts! It's really the best choice to get after the main book.

Im still largely using the core book, i find that to many rules make things confusing and boring for the players, though one of my party is playing a sister (mostly beacuase she wouldnt play otehr wise and i wanted the fun of having a sisster in the party)

I find it is better to make certain you and your players have a solid grasp on the setting/mechanics before introducing additional material.  Much of what is provided can be worked in later through clever use of naration/training/etc.  Learning a new system or setting can be difficult enough without dumping a cartload of optional rules on the players right off the bat.

You'd have to be REAL clever when trying to change someones homeworld AFTER the character has been created and make it sound plausible. Remember that much of the traits given from homeworlds dictate how you should roleplay in a way. (like Imperial Worlders not being to keen to read forbidden and/or heretical texts etc.)

Dark Heresy's rules and game mechanics are relatively simple to learn so I wouldn't worry about the optional character creation rules making it all too confusing...

from france

usually when i use new rules because i try a new game (more often as master) i try several creation of character than i try a few exemplary situations and finally a few party. it give me the possibility to explore the game in length. it's possible like this to see the merits and flaws of a game whithout to much problemes.

if a charecter was good  we simply keep them a part until the other player have character that match it . if not well it s easy to create aonther one.

Legend has it that a heretical genius wrote up a further class - the Imperial Noble - but that could all be a myth.

Your thread with the Imperial Noble does not exist anymore. Any chance you can repost and perhaps even complete it here on fantasyflightgames.com or on the new Dark Reign 40k site? New site can be found here: http://darkreign.org
