Dave's article is, indeed, the seminal work for introducing the game to beginners.  I suspect that any attempt I make to "explain" the game is merely going to repeat something the article has already said better.

FWIW, though, Inquisitor is a wargame with the brakes off: a bare-back, white-knuckle ride that takes all the bits you like best about tabletop wargames (the rich context, the dark themes, the shock of conflict) and roleplay games (colourful individuals, the fate of the galaxy hanging by a thread, sudden changes of personal fortune in the time it takes to pull a trigger) and throws them into a single package.  It's like a cooperative novel and a competitive action movie rolled up into one thing.  It's wargaming for poets.  It's falling to your knees in a sea of corpses, an empty stubber in one hand and a bloody chainsword in the other, screaming "If this is heresy, it feels SO GOOD!"

Hahahah I can't help but imagine Dave in a sea of corpses with an empty stubber and chainsword now :P
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

Yeah. Forget anything I write - use that instead. It's fantastic.

@ferran - Justified criticism noted.

R.

Not really a criticism mate, just an observation. I've been in the hobby long enough to know that we're all, with a few exceptions, committed procrastinators (one reason I generally don't go in for organised group hobby activities), and this is a big project. I'm sure you'd agree that a mailshoot lauding the Inq2 project would be a bit premature at this point, especially given the target audience.

INQ28, done properly, is at least the equal of its big brother - and Mol is one of the expert proponents of "done properly".
