This is one of the best paper and pencil role playing games books I've ever read. This is the core rules of Warhammer 40k Roleplaying, and while set in the future, it's more fantasy than science fiction.

The flavor is gothic, and the players all work for the holy inquisition. Demons and psychic power are real and dangerous. The galaxy is populated by a variety of gothic distopias. The players must hunt down heritics, witches (untrained psychics), demons, and aliens. Science is not shiny and new,...more

April 6, 2008: So far, so good. I'm about 50 pages in, and I like it a lot. The fluff is AWESOME. The system is a fairly standard D10-based system with LOTS of tables and charts. It's no Serenity, but it's still a good system with lots of potential and GREAT for background info on the 40K universe.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to get my friends to play a campaign, but I think I'm going to try once the semester calms down a little bit more.
My first experience w/a BL or GW roleplaying game (other than Inquisitor). I understand this is closer to the Fantasy version anyhow. It seems pretty straightforward, and although I have yet to actually play it, creating characters and background was on par with other decent RPGs. Fortunately it was picked up before it's untimely (and lame) cancellation by BL. I'm excited to see the introduction of other races to expand the universe.

Wow! This books is beautiful, and a very good read. Only downside is knowing Black Industries is closing their door after a couple more supplements.
For those of you who play the role and even have a passing intererst in Warhammer 40k, this is a good one.
