I have to say that this collection has me excited. The Deathwatch RPG was based off the old Dark Heresy system an it allowed you to play as a member of the Deathwatch. These adventures focused on the Xenos Hunting Space Marines and their superhuman abilities and wargear to really take the action up a level. Where Dark Heresy had you act as the eyes and ears (and sometimes murderous hands) of an Inquisitor, and Rogue Trader played more like a Star Trek away team adventure, Deathwatch was exactly the right mix of action and Space Marines being badasses that you’d expect.
These books used to be be published by FFG but after that partnership dissolved, they went into limbo. But now they are available from Cubicle 7 and the Humble and it’s a steal of deal!
“What about the new hotness that is Wrath and Glory? Are these systems compatible?” Not directly, no. They are different game systems. However, there is a metric ton of useful info in all these Deathwatch books and if you’re looking for game ideas, adventure hooks, and more. If your dream game is to play a squad of Space Marines in an RPG setting then these are SUPER handy reference materials.
It’s 18 books for 18$. It’s HUNDREDS of pages to crib from. If you’re a Game Master and you need content/ideas/background lore these books are PACKED with it. You could also just play Deathwatch as it IS a stand alone RPG. Personally, I really like the Wrath & Glory system and I think running a game with a bunch of Deathwatch Marines sounds freaking amazing.
