  1. Warhammer 30,000 Roleplay Campaign: The Last Supper - Part 3 - The Lion



    Lion El'Jonson

    Background:
    At the stage of his life when The Last Supper is set, The Lion is a man at the very apex of hubris. The lord of the first of all legions, he is rightly proud of his skill at arms and at war; after a life spent fighting the Great Beasts of Caliban, how could it be otherwise? The betrayal of his greatest

    The Emperor

    Background:
    At the point in history when 'The Last Supper' takes place, the Emperor is not a man accustomed to loss, doubt, or anything except outright victory. Indeed, he is at the very peak of his abilities, at the absolute apex of all that he will achieve. He has his Sons around him, his Great Crusade has been a total and absolute

  3. Warhammer 30,000 Roleplay Campaign: The Last Supper - Part 1



    Having finished blogging my latest RPG campaign last week, this week sees the start of a new one. This is very different. It is based around the concept of 'mature roleplay', first popularised by White-Wolf in their 'Black Dog' imprint of games in the late nineties. The idea was simple, really. The games weren't mature because they featured sex and violence (though they ...

  4. 40K Roleplay Campaign: To Sakovhim - part 7.2 - Running the Campaign

    A General Outline of a 'To Sakovhim' Campaign

    There are three core stages to a 'To Sakovhim' campaign. They can be broadly defined as the 'Reconnaissance' phase, the 'Preparation' phase and the 'War' phase. These can be broken down as follows.

    The 'Reconnaissance' phase.
    In many ways, this is the simplest phase of the campaign. It is assumed that the game is set approximately ten years before the arrival of Strike Force Sigilus, the Inquisition's dedicated effort

    Integrating Player Characters
    Sakovhim is primarily a setting for Dark Heresy; as such, players will need to be carefully integrated into the game. At the point the 'To Sakovhim' campaign is set, Kepler 22b is technically within Imperial space, though it has been utterly ignored for the last three thousand years. Obviously, what is occurring on Kepler is heresy of the worst kind – humans living amongst Xenos would be bad enough, but humans actively sharing and assimilating Xenos culture?

    Cultural and Historical Landmarks

    The Ga'nhi Memorial Centre

    High Ethereal Ga'nhi is a figure of great historical significance to the people of Kepler in general, and the E'Krati in specific. A peacemaker, negotiator, and outspoken figure, Ga'nhi was originally one of the high council on T'au itself, until her questioning on the nature of what exactly constituted 'The Greater Good' was deemed too contentious. For daring to suggest that 'The Greater Good' was simply

    Transportation

    Albitern Memorial Central Station
    Originally simply named the Sakovhim Central Station, the name was changed a decade ago out of respect to the Bifrosti forces who fought on Albitern, as a sign of good faith from Phaelolaeum's government. The station itself is internationally famous, acting as the central hub for all gravlev and monorail lines through the whole of the continent. From the stations thirty seven platforms, citizens can travel to almost any other

    Places of Entertainment

    Entertainment in Phaelolaeum is largely a matter of class. Every species is different, but class determines the specifics. While it is fair to say that parties both polite and bawdy, evenings at the pub and nights in watching the Vid-screen are the most popular ways to pass the time, there are a number of other entertainments which have become popular across a variety of classes.

    Shopping

    A note on goods and services
    Within Phylolaem many goods and services remain illegal. Prostitution is illegal everywhere, as are narcotics of all kinds. Firearms are not allowed anywhere – even carrying the smallest pistol is a crime with a five-year prison sentence. Of course, prohibition will ever lose out to cold, hard, cash and whenever something is made illegal, someone decides to profit from it. Black markets thrive everywhere, especially in major cities. However,

    Religious Centres Within Sakovhim

    The Church of The Emperor In His Aspect As Redeemer
    Since the terrible wars on Albitern, worship of the Emperor is not generally observed by the Bifrosti as a culture. Of course, this is not to say that they are not a spiritual or religious people; merely that they are, by and large, secular. The Church of The Emperor In His Aspect As Redeemer, which stands at the end of West Street, is probably the grandest of the official Ecclesiarchy buildings
