Black Legacy

"My patience isn't limitless... unlike my authority" - Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn, Ordo Xenos

The Holy Inquisition is the most shadowy and feared of Imperial organisations. Seeking out threats against the Imperium from within and without, as well as beyond the boundaries of reality, it is the duty of these shadowy agents to do whatever is necessary to protect the masses of Humanity. To most Imperial citizens, the Inquisition is unlimited in power, resources and authority. Few realise that the organisation is fractured with internal politics, heresies and feuds.

If there is one thing the Inquisition likes to keep hidden above all else, it is that their agents are not infallible. To be an inquisitor means facing the absolute worst that the galaxy has to offer. Only the most stalwart souls and minds can withstand such corruption, and even then it will eventually take its toll. No inquisitor ever retires. If they do not end up dead, their soul becomes corrupted, their mind torn to pieces by the horrors of the warp. Eventually they become a rogue, a heretic or worse - something to be hunted down by those whom they once served.

Inquisitor Raven Black was one such individual. Once one of the Inquisition's greatest heroes, claiming one victory after another against the daemons of the warp and the enemies of mankind, the inquisitor's mind eventually broke. Turning to heresy, sorcery and worse, Raven Black become one of the most dangerous arch-heretics the galaxy had ever known - one who knew every secret of the Imperium, every trick of the Inquisitorial trade. Capturing Raven Black required cooperation between the different factions of the Inquisition on a scale rarely seen before. However, eventually the mission was successful and the former inquisitor turned arch-heretic was apprehended.

It is now time to pronounce the final judgement upon Raven Black. Grand High Inquisitor Olivandus has called a conclave - a gathering of the most senior and respected inquisitors in the sector along with their most trusted staff. This is not just an execution, though. Rarely do such gatherings occur and there is sure to be a lot of business, secrets and old feuds to discuss. However, the conclave also serves a darker purpose. Raven Black's heretical influence was extensive, and who knows how many other of the inquisitors, apprentices and acolytes present may also have been corrupted. Only the Inquisition can judge their own. But will this attempt to clean house result in heresy running rampant?

Wylde Deluzion presents a game of diligence, heresy and authority without limits.

This is a freeform based in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 setting, this time focused on the activities of the Imperial Inquisition.

As usual, no knowledge or experience of Warhammer 40,000 is needed - everything relevant will be explained!

This is a standalone game and will feature entirely new characters and plots.

Please note, this one will have a much darker, more intensive and generally more serious feel than our previous WH40k games. There is also likely to be a lot less shooting and combat, shouting and running around.
