This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Excellent. Although I'm not sure about the 3 book deal thing, very odd.

Especially since your original character isn't likely to move between the rolls they mention. To be in Deathwatch you'ld have to be a Space Marine to start with surely?

Well that's why it makes sense. Each of the three is effectively a corebook.

That's not clear from the text.

Quote
After this basic game, two further games released eighteen months apart will allow the players to progress and explore the universe first as Rogue Traders and alien pirates, and eventually experienced players will be able to roleplay the devastating warriors of the Adeptus Astartes Deathwatch.


The implication is advancement, from a basic set, to more experienced set.

Quote
Players will be able to progress from one system to the next, as they gain experience and a measure of understanding of the vastly detailed universe of Warhammer 40,000.


This statement of progression seems to conflict with the next one. Are they saying the player gains XP as well? (Be an interesting idea) Or they are just supposed to become more familiar with the setting. Also it implies that each book uses a different but related system.

Quote
Each of the games will consist of a core rulebook accompanied by regular releases of sourcebooks and adventures.


By Core book do they mean stand alone, or is it more like Basic D&D, Expert and Immortal (remember them?), where one book builds on the previous one, but all are 'core'.
