The Emperor Protects will use the Only War system to give you a taste of life as an ordinary human in the vast Warhammer 40,000 universe.
You will play citizen-soldiers of a small market town on one of the innumerable worlds in the Imperium, rising to the defence of your neighbours as a shadow falls across your world.
The odds will be long. The price of failure immense. But you will show the citizens of Vuultath that The Emperor Protects.
“To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruellest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods.”
Only War uses a percentile system for easily adapted combat, and The Emperor Protects will include streamlined rules in order to keep the story moving quickly. Players can expect some interaction and investigation, along with tactical planning and deadly, deadly combat.
