Dark Heresy Demo Adventure

Recommended Posts

I might be running a standalone demo session of DH2 for a couple of people* at my FLGS sometime soon, and I'm wondering what adventure to use. I suppose I could write my own, but I'd also like some opinions on which published adventures would be appropriate. My regular group and I had a good time with the DH1 adventures Edge of Darkness and Illumination (which I suppose could be adapted to DH2 without much trouble), but I'm not certain whether either of them could be crammed into a 3-4 hour session. Is Dark Pursuits any good?

 

One advantage I do have (in terms of speed of play) is that the players will control pre-generated, starting-level characters. This means I can optimize them ahead of time to be easy to understand and use, and in any case they won't be overloaded with complicated Talents.

 

*Some experienced RPG players, some not so much. Most will probably have passing knowledge of the 40k setting, but I can't be certain of that.

Hi Drubbels,

 

I have run something that was based on "Dark Pursuits", but found it wanting. The characters move from Encounter A to Encounter B and that´s it. At least, that is what I remember.

 

Sadly, there are not to many options in regard to published DH2nd adventures. Do you own "Damned Cities" from the DH1 Haarlock Trilogy? It could be turned into a stand-alone adventure rather easily, but you would need to adept it to DH2.

Otherwise, you might want to check out "Idle Heresies", a DH1st scenario contest winner (and thereby: a freebee). It should be easy to adapt it to Hive Deloseum, so that you could run "Dark Pursuits" in the aftermath.

 

The RT demo-adventure "Forsaken Bounty" could be adapted to DH as well: just change the set-up so that the RT is taking the characters along to remain in good standing with =I=. The characters are tasked with the recovery of an item that was in the possession of the Captain ("the Wyrm")....
