New Dawn - 20th May 2017, Dark Sphere
« on: April 15, 2017, 03:21:19 PM »
New Dawn
A one day Inquisitor event at Dark Sphere, London - 20th May 2017

The famous yet notorious Inquisitor Levenson is missing in action, last seen prosecuting the secessionist Dark Sun cult on Maedai.
As one of the Carthax sector's leading authorities on the capture, containment and termination of high level rogue psykers, but also a suspected Istvaanian, accused of severe crimes against his Holy Emperor, Levenson's disappearance demands the attention of both his allies and enemies.


Event Briefing pack (V 0.1 - updated 15th March)
Facebook event page (I'll try to post all important updates over there as well. For those of you who only check the 'Clave occasionally, that may be an easier way to stay up-to-date).

~~~~~

New Dawn is a three-round game day, intended as a playtest for the Inquisitor Revised Edition rules. However, as IRE is largely compatible with the existing LRB, the use of IRE rules will be at the discretion of the organiser of each game table.

I will hopefully release a slightly more refined version of IRE prior to the event.

Behind the scenes:
The first part of the background fluff for New Dawn is actually a Dark Heresy campaign I ran a while back. Don't worry - you won't need to know the story of that though. (That'd be somewhat silly, as none of the original players are attending).

I just had a lot of background from the setting that made for a good starting point for something new.

Shared on The Carthaxian Inquisitor Facebook page.

Personally won't be able to attend, but hope the post drags some interest your way.

Much appreciated.

I wasn't expecting you to be available, but I guess that means you won't have to suffer the shonky early versions of IRE. :P

Re-confirming my availability.

I'm aiming to finally get around to building and painting my Talon(?) ganger for a bit of a change in the crew.

Going to have to pull it of this. Gutted I can't make it, my wedding anniversary and associated wife time mean I won't be coming. Make sure plentiful pics are taken :)

Noted in both cases.

I hope to get some fluff about the world/characters on the Carthax Wiki sometime soon, in order that players can think about their motivations for the day in advance. I'm not going to make that a promise just yet though - I first want to get the vitals of the day's scenarios sorted and ideally find time to do some preliminary rules tests. (Things like a lot of IRE's modifiers being placeholders at the moment - obviously, fixing that is part of the point of the day, but I'd rather spot any glaring errors in advance. It'll be more fun for all, and a good first impression will be better for IRE's chances of surviving as a ruleset).
