The Soul Reaver has been announced. It is an adventure supplement from Fantasy Flight Games for Rogue Trader that deals with the Dark Eldar, and even lets you play a Dark Eldar Kabalite Warrior. It takes a deep look into the Dark Eldar of the Koronus Expanse, definetly something just to pick up if you are a Dark Eldar nut.

It is set to be released late in the second quarter.

The Soul Reaver
Announcing an upcoming adventure supplement for Rogue Trader

“They are a scourge upon our galaxy, the most vile and sadistic of all our xenos foes, and a peril to any who would ply the void in search of profit or gain. Whatever happens, should the shadow of their ships darken your path, pray you die fighting at the helm of your vessel, lest ‘fortune’ favours you and they take you alive…"
–Magos Domos Agnelain, Explorator

The Dark Eldar are a plague upon the Koronus Expanse; raiders, slavers, pirates, and even Rogue Traders suffer at their barbed lashes and blades. Any who cross the Maw and sail the void of the Koronus Expanse learn to fear the wicked silhouettes of their ships and their seemingly endless cruelty towards all life, including their own. Only vigilance and firepower keep the worst depredations of these terrible raiders at bay, though from the dens of Footfall to the commerce halls of Port Wander there are countless tales of crew lost and ships savaged in their sudden attacks...

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of The Soul Reaver, an adventure in three parts for Rogue Trader! This epic campaign is a chance for daring Explorers to look deep into the twisted heart of Dark Eldar society in the Koronus Expanse, and pull the greatest heist of their careers.



Betrayal and Lies
For more on The Soul Reaver, here’s a word from developer Max Brooke:

Rogue Trader is all about risk and profit. Namely, taking huge risks in the name of reaping massive profits. And what bigger gamble could there be than plucking an ancient and powerful warship from the very heart of a Dark Eldar city within the webway?

The Soul Reaver starts with a heist, but things are rarely as they seem when you're dealing with the treacherous Dark Eldar. The Explorers have to bet everything more than once to survive the machinations of several competing factions within the city and come away from this web of lies and betrayal with their promised reward. Of course, the Explorers have a chance to do some betraying of their own, and to this end, The Soul Reaver contains the Dark Eldar Kabalite Warrior Career Path. This full new Career, designed for use in this adventure and beyond, allows players to take the sadistic power of the Dark Eldar into their own hands for the first time in Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay.

I'm very excited about the new resources that The Soul Reaver contains for creating dangerous and memorable characters, and GMs and players alike should enjoy using these rules in their adventure through the twisted depths and perilous heights of Dark Eldar society!

Check back often over the coming months as we preview The Soul Reaver, and look for it on store shelves late in the second quarter.

  1. "Fzzzzaaaaappp! Blackened and smoking skeleton with fingers melted onto the keyboard"

    That is what I've been waiting for! Any news on whether it contains ALL Dark Eldar units and ALL Dark Eldar vehicles?

    If this has EVERYTHING then I might just pick it up! Want to do a Deathwatch assault on Commorragh to rescue some important member of the Inquisition/Ecclesiarchy.

  2. love the Rogue Trader game! Got two ships and captains I play.

    We have a small group that plays Death Watch also. Too small of a group, so if anyone in the NYC area into playing Death Watch send a message!

  3. Awesome and stoked. Rogue Trader and FFG continues to impress. They just need to come out with their book on playing an Imperial Guard campaign and I'll be in 7th heaven.

    1. looking for a storyline or stats? Stats should be easy... There has to be stats in one of the franchise games with IG or similar stats you can use and abuse.

      As for a storyline, just throw something together, let the PC's 'direct' where they want to go. If they are the boring kill everything, just throw them something fresh to fight. If they like character growth, the PC's will give you kernels during play and interactions, then run with it!
