Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Imperium Maledictum Cover Reveal
We are continuing our build up to the launch of Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Imperium Maledictum. This week, we are incredibly excited to reveal the cover for Imperium Maledictum, illustrated by the incredible Álvaro Jiménez.
And here’s a mock up of what the final book might look like!
On the cover you can see the agents of a powerful patron investigating vile heresy that has taken place in the hive city of Persepolis, deep in the Macharian Sector. From left to right, the agents are a Zealot in service to the Ecclesiarchy, a Recidivist Penumbra, and a Savant of the Adeptus Mechanicus. If you want to know more about what exactly a Penumbra, Zealot, or Savant is in Imperium Maledictum, be sure to keep an eye out for our character creation preview coming soon.
What is Imperium Maledictum?
Imperium Maledictum is a new Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying game set in the glorious Macharian Sector, forged from the thousand worlds conquered by Lord Solar Macharius, one of the greatest commanders in the long history of the Imperium.
Centuries after the Lord Solar's death and elevation to sainthood, the Macharian Sector is — at first glance — a bastion of Imperial might. In truth, the entire sector balances upon the knife-edge of peril; beset by heresy and betrayal from within and alien menaces from without. For the rule of the Imperium to prevail, servants loyal to the throne must step forward and pledge themselves to the sector. Their trials shall be lethal, their rewards paltry, and their likely fate a thankless death. But in the grim darkness of the 41st millennium, who could hope for more?
Imperium Maledictum uses a familiar but refined d100 system to draw players into tales of intrigue, betrayal, and conspiracy. Players take on the role of Imperial adepts and citizens recruited by a powerful Patron. These influential figures use teams outside the usual chain of command to undertake grim and perilous missions, furthering their often inscrutable interests. To succeed, players must weave their way through the complicated web of competing organisations that make up the Imperium. They must navigate a realm where a whispered accusation can be as deadly as any bolter, plumbing the depths of the most lethal hives and navigating the often far more insidious threats that grace the courts of the highborn.
Do you have what it takes to survive the grim and treacherous adventures in the 41st Millennium?
