Over there, at the FFG forum, ThenDoctor asked me to re-post my old collection of additional encounters for Dead Stars. Well, why not? I always wanted to give me old material a re-hash, and here we go!
A long, long time ago I created a table with Psychic Phenomena and Warp Perils, tailored for “Dead Stars”, the third part of the Haarlock´s Legacy Trilogy. Now, in 2017, a fellow FFG form-user asked me for such alternate tables, and so I dusted of my old table, correct some of bad grammar and got myself some artwork (see above) to give it all a neat look. And here you have it, all minted for DH1st, I hope you have fun with it.
[Bone Charm Peddler]
A long time ago I wrote up some scenes and fluff for the Hive World of Volg, which is part of the Calixis Sector (and thereby the official background for the 1st edition of DarkHeresy). One of this contributions was the Bone Charm Peddler, which I know release again (with better grammar).
40K underhive gangs. I don´t know about you, but I cannot say (or write) the word without pictures of brutal men forming in my mind, short haired or bald, muscle-packed and tattooed, with a mean gleam in their eyes and a dastardly grin on their faces. They are the kind of people that survive by either being the meanest son of a gun around or by belonging to the meanest bunch of such within the next two klicks around. And to achieve the one or the other, one needs to be as tough as nails and as brutal as a slice with a glass shard.
The world of the micro-RPG Fleshscape (which I wrote about in my last post)is a rather special one, and it thereby does not look ripe for adaption at first. But I think that the idea and (most of all) the basic economy of this weird world may be useful for an odd session or two in other RPG as well.
The GM-Kit for the 2nd edition of DarkHeresy(tm) included an adventure module named Desolation of the Dead. As it was often the case with DH missions, it included sections where the GM was encouraged to add his or her own encounter in order to add some more flesh to the bones. I enjoyed doing so, even for adventures that I have never played myself as a GM. Luckily, Desolation of the Dead was an exception to this rules (I actually have played it once), and I decided to polish my old notes and FFG-Forum posts to release them as a free fanware supplement. Enjoy!
