The Deepnight Endeavour Campaign

The Story
The Travellers will board the Research Starship RSS Deepnight Revelation, a converted heavy cruiser outfitted for a ten-year voyage beyond everything humans have ever experienced. They must chart a course through unexplored space and meet whatever challenges await them, until finally they reach their goal.

The mission is simple enough in concept yet grand in scope. Deepnight Revelation will voyage along the periphery of the Great Rift, undertaking exploration and research as she goes, until the expedition reaches the mouth of the rift. There, a full exploration and investigation is to be carried out into a mysterious radio source whose location coincides with the point described in mysterious carvings.

The mission’s overriding goal, known to everyone aboard the ship but not widely disseminated beyond the project, is to learn about the threat or wonder described in the carvings and how it relates to the entity encountered by Deepnight Endeavour.

In addition, the expedition is tasked with undertaking a general-to-specific exploration of star systems along and to the side of its route. General exploration will indicate points of interest which will be investigated if the mission’s commanders choose to do so. However, the primary mission is of paramount importance. Side expeditions can be only of short duration and must not hold up the advance of the mission.
It still pulls me in...
 
Cubicle7 to the credit of Dominic McDowall are finally doing justice to the grimdark 41st Millennium, something Ulsses North America failed. I think after a super return of the Old world in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th Edition, Cubicle7 seriously impressed Games Workshop through a thorough understanding of the source material. Lots of new art was commissioned to capture the evocative violence of a galaxy that knows only war. A soacdfatring society ruled by a decaying living corpse and the overbloated and nihilistic Adeptus Administratum that sends billions of human souls unto certain death for the glory of the Imperium of Man.
 
I'm tempted too, and I don't know why. I've never played any form of Warhammer 40k before so there's no nostalgia. I read one novel and didn't like it. But there's still something oddly fascinating.
Its the shoulder pads on that Marine. If there was a tweed chapter you'd be signing right up ;)

Joking aside Warty K has a good 30 odd years of development on it, and a metricfuckton of background and fun pop culture references. So if you don't like one bit of it or are a bit meh about another bit, theres aways something to tickle your fancy. The whole thing was designed as a honey trap for young teenage boys to gleefully spend their parents disposable income on :D

Me I'm down with these chaps :) (I'm mean black power armour and matching chainsword, phooooooooooooarrrr :D )

The Space Marines bring the human-focused gritty power fantasy to life in ways that Star Wars does not. But then again, Star Wars gave us lightsabers, the best ever personal weapon in every known fictional universe.

Fortunately, my premiere league game collection includes the vast plethora of Fantasy Flight Games Warhammer 40K alongside Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars.
 
Running with this Warhammer 40,000 discussion of space fantasy, it is entirely feasible that the chaos god, Tzeentch, the Changer of Ways, may even bring about some Star Wars influence into his chaos legions, with the mighty daemon prince of the Sith and his stormtroopers in power armor.

The Alien RPG. I already have 2300AD, Hostile and Cthulhu Rising. Can’t help thinking it would be an extravagance to get this as well. It does look rather nice though...
