Dark Heresy Second Edition is a roleplaying game of danger, mystery, and brutal violence set in the decaying far future of Warhammer 40,000. Players take on the roles of Acolytes serving at the front lines of a great and secret war to root out dangers that imperil all of humanity.
As the defenders of humanity, Acolytes embark on hazardous adventures into the dark heart of the Askellon Sector, in the grim, far future of the 41st millennium. They take their lead from one of the Imperium’s Inquisitors – supremely-powerful agents dedicated to preserving Mankind at any cost.
Inquisitors travel to the far reaches of the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man to detect and destroy the manifold threats to mankind, and they are relentless in the pursuit of these threats. While they wield tremendous power, Inquisitors are still but men; they cannot be everywhere, and so they rely upon their Acolytes to augment their efforts. To be an Acolyte is to possess more power than most men dream of. Still, this power must be wielded wisely, for its misuse can prove even more damaging than not using it at all. Were an Acolyte to fail in his duties, entire worlds, systems, or even entire sectors may fall to endless night.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, and these are the darkest times that humanity has ever known. The Imperium is beset by enemies, from within and without and beyond. Humanity is but a heartbeat from extinction, and it an Acolyte’s job to ensure mankind survives another day…
