Review

Rating: 7

This roleplaying rulebook bears approximately the same relation to Games Workshop’s Inquisition rules for miniatures as the Warhammer roleplaying game bears to the miniatures rules of the same name. Having read this, I understand why some of the fiction has little involvement by actual Inquisitors and their ilk, unlike earlier fictions such as the Eisenhorn trilogy by Dan Abnett. Instead, these rules (and related fiction) focus on the lesser lights of the Inquisition and, as a result, also more on the regular folk of the Imperium. There is definitely some good material here including plenty of examples and adventure hooks for roleplaying in the dark backwaters of the Warhammer 40K Universe.
