Greetings all

Seeing as my group has recently taken to brainstorming out setting ideas for Dark Heresy (planets, people, weapons, cities, homebrew rules ect), and the ones we've done so far have been pretty good, we thought it would be a good idea to start a thead to post all our finished ideas for other GMs to get setting inspiration from.

These will be setting ideas for my group to use, as well as anyone else who wants them. We'd also like feedback from others about our creations.

To aid in the finding of resources, I will compile links to each resource posted in a list below:

  • General Resources (Dark Heresy Wiki, seems quite disorganised, not a lot of material for some categories)
  • Online Character Generator (useful for quick characters, includes options presented in all supplement books)
  • Current Dark Heresy Errata (Version 3.0, direct download)
  • Vehicle Rules
  • Autorealm - A free Mapping program (Works on all scales, from Worlds to Rooms)
  • FFG 40k NPC list (A referance list of adversaries and NPC's found in the FFG 40k related supplements Up to (chronologically) Dark Heresy: Dead Stars, Deathwatch: GM kit and Rogue Trader: Edge of the Abyss)
  • Deathwatch 'living' Errata This Errata is updated continuously to include the latest in RaW technology.
  • RPG resources Generator A veritable treasure trove of GMing resources, including a dungeon generator, planet generator, star system generator (!), inn generator... The list goes on and on. An invaluable tool for GMs.


  • So, without further ado, may I present the first of our planet ideas, now fully fleshed out (we hope). Its rather halloween themed, and could be used for a small, one off halloween game to give your players nightmares or as part of a larger campaign:

    Your title is misleading, is this a thread to post DH resources or just for you guys to share what you have?

    Anyway an excellent resource I know of is http://darkheresy.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

    We have skype to share it over. This is for anyone wanting either DH or RT resources. The granithor planet is one several people put together recently and thought that others might want to use it.

    This thread will be where we deposit our creations for the rest of the Dakka community to use if they so wish. Anyone else who wishes to deposit homebrew stuff here for it to be developed/used by us is welcome to do so.

    There's a handy character generation tool on the /tg/ archive. Very useful if you need to roll a new one on the fly.

    People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone's circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It's not chance or fate. It's the choice you made.

    Recently found a set of rules for vehicle combat, downloadable from Dark Reign 40k. These are published as a free download from Fantasy Flight I believe, but they're really useful.

    I'll add them as an attachment to the first post so people don't have to read through pages of other resources to find them.

    On second thoughts, that exceeds the upload limit. Here instead is a direct download link:

    If you like to make maps for your campaigns here is a brilliant free program. Only having messed about with it a little I can still see a lot of uses for it in Dark Heresy for large scale down to street scale maps. As well as for pretty much any gaming system. Great tool!

    I'm pretty sure I saw some of those floating around on the web. Not sure where, but I'll have a look. If I can't find one I'll see if I can make on up for you as a document template.

    Right here:
    http://www.darkreign40k.com/drjoomla/index.php/component/docman/cat_view/36-handouts

    What you're looking for should be around page 4, but take a look at the rest of that stuff.


    You can also take a look at everything else the site as to offer, its good stuff, everything from handouts, character sheets, maps, threats, gaming aids, adventures, supplements and so on:

    This is pretty nifty - a complete list of all the NPC's/adversaries published so far for DH/RT/DW. Page reference, brief description, what book it's in - quite useful. It even has the reference for the Venomthrope that's in The Emperor Protects!

    It's in the N & R board thread, and now here too.

    The "living" errata.....

    The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
    We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.

    As opposed to 'dying' errata (a name infinately more fitting for the subject imo...) I guess eh?

    Adding it to the list. Thanks!

    update of the above.

    Experts recommend the revised weapon stats and rules.

    Added a general resources generator: http://donjon.bin.sh/

    I can't stress how insanely fantastic this resource generator is. It has tools for both fantasy and Sci-fi, including several star system generators, several name generators, a dungeon generator, initiative tracker and fractal world generators. The usefulness of this is truly mind blowing.

    Big thanks to Reds8n and Lexx for alerting me to this!
